Now Playing Tracks

The danger is real and nobody is ready, I’m probably going to just blacklist associated terms by friday, because people seem to believe thats when things will begin again

Heh, I’ll probably just ride out the storm on my end here. Given everything else that’s going on these days, that behemoth of a fandom finally waking up might be a welcome respite of distraction.

It’s hard to believe that it has been a whole year—a year of strange, somehow serendipitous, silence. It’s odd how easy it was to forget about it, especially once most of the excitement about it died down after a few months and the core group shifted into hibernation.

But as of tomorrow it will be a year, and I can already hear the Homestuck fandom revving its engines in the starting block. I can’t help but feel that something is indeed coming, and I’m not sure I’m ready for the onslaught on my dashboard.

Shibidate: Shh no its fine
Ringadingdingabel: I have dealt with you for ten years I know better.
Ringadingdingabel: ANYTIME YOU SAY IT’S FINE, IT’S NOT FINE.
Ringadingdingabel: YOU’RE UP TO SOMETHING
Ringadingdingabel: You don’t just hear that and leave you of all people without supervision
Ringadingdingabel: Because then when someone comes back to check up on you
Ringadingdingabel: The room is in pieces, there’s fire everywhere, maybe someone’s dead.
Ringadingdingabel: AND THEN THERE YOU ARE STANDING IN THE MIDDLE OF IT SMILING GOING “IT’S FINE.”

Well he was raised in a tough desert environment and has the weight of responsibility for keeping his entire race of people alive in said environment. Of course he’d be pretty rough around the edges.

Speaking of Ganondorf, I think I’ve stated before that it would be cool if there were a Zelda game where the Gerudo king (since there’s a different one every 100 years) was actually a friendly or neutral presence in the narrative, or where he’s tempted by power from the big bad but resists it. I understand that it’s not likely to happen because Nintendo is very fond of traditional story structures, but I do think it would be nice to have players expecting this guy to be bad when he turns out to be either an ally or only interested in leading his people.

Who knew that even entertaining the thought to send bacon ketchup overseas would send me on a wild dovetail of shipping forms and regulations and painfully high rates for what would likely be a 2 lb box. That was certainly an adventure that I don’t care to repeat in the near future.

I had thought it would be that, but hearing it from the source proper only makes me feel worse.

Psh, don’t feel guilty about it sir. I was simply a little optimistic about international shipping and this event caused me no significant waste of time despite my somewhat hyperbolic statements above.
