Discussion in 'Your Bijou Blogette' started by IvyLB, Oct 11, 2017.
"what kind of oppressor? yes" is peak discourse
beacon/belenus is just. hoo boy. Pedo discourse all the way. yells about him being space/fantasy catholic and a priest. He's CLEARLY abusive and CLEARLY a horrible person, clearly. A creepy geezer. because anyone past the age of 30 is decrepid and disgusting. Never mind that he and pillage turn into the dorkiest old married couple.
Half-Life/Valentin is CHILDCODED and an uwu soft bean nevermind he's bossy, a sadist top and generally has the bedside manner of a slightly concussed angry papershredder who loves you so much but also takes none of your shit
Sylvia Hawke is cancelled within seconds of being introduced.
the fact some people might interprete meraud as an uwu child coded bean just caused me physical pain. god. my garbage sociopath queen. no.
considering the shit people might write over andy/brejan/cullen is also. painful. Ah yes, Cullen is a cradlerobber pedo uber abuser for forcing his dick between the two soft precious uwu mage lesbeans. Nevermind that andy is a guy, and andy and brejan both want to jump cullen so badly. Brejan would also be written as a wilting sad Tragic Inspiration Porn despite brejan's insistance to headbutt her own illness in the dumbest ways and then suffering for it. Also Somethin Something putting like six children in your frail disabled wife is sexism nevermind the fact she would happily have like 10 more
Ryol is another for the woobie squad but might cause Bad Tevinter Discourse because of his apprenticeship. he might quite possibly get several 'how dare you like him's over his crush on dorian and the start of his relationship with dove but i feel like by and large Scary Templar wins out over Emo-Douchebag-Baby-Revolutionary
I want to make a joke about elouan also being labeled an Oppressor who deserves guillotined but tbh the antis would be right
I mean i clawed a somewhat sympathetic backstory for him together and he's learning but. Revolution Of The Working Class his ass, he deserves it.
don't forget that beacon is privileged and imperialist!
And a white savior. lets not forget that
but also he's an attractive white guy in fandom so he would get progressively younger and progressively more well, progressive, who fucking gives a shit about his sanctimonious douchebag streak, or the whole thing where he is actively and maliciously an asshole to decepticons (but also he has ptsd so uwu?????)

[u.2:06] Have you spoken to the House of Light, like I asked?
[u.1:07] I would rather not speak with Fallen.
[u.2:07] They may need our help. Their cause is just.
[u.1:08] What happened to “trust no one?”
[u.2:08] What happened to your sense of right and wrong, hero?
[u.1:09] That is the City’s word, not mine. And the people still remember when I defended its borders from those very Fallen.
[u.2:09] Our kind live for a very long time, Saint. Too long to bear grudges.

DON'T JUST DROP THAT FAT HINT THERE IN THE MIDDLE OF EMOTIONS TIME
GOOD LET THEM
@Loq here's some random characterization and lore notes for sidony and nevarra and death mages from Murder By Death Mages as promised
Spoiler: Dragon Age: Tevinter Nights - Murder By Death Mages, by Caitlin Sullivan Kelly
Sidony was a homeless kid, chased from her house for having magic by her mother and hates Nevarra City for its pompousness and the frivolous spending by nobels and she specifically despises the ornamental/reverential statues and how many nobels spend fuckloads of money on making the statues dedicated to their ancestors look better than those of their rivals.
She has 0 respect for the nevarran reverance towards dead ancestors and the pageantry associated
"Nevarran Nobles weren't good for anything anymore. Except maybe Cassandra Pentaghast."
looks like this takes place during inq, or in the time skip between end of inquisition and beginning of trespasser, given it's still about how the line of succession in nevarra is a mess.
she was taken in and raised by a Lord Henrik, who she first referred to as 'A Mortalitasi she used to know' which is. interesting. He's also dead as of Murder By Death Mages
doesn't seem to give a shit about pissing Cass off either, finds it more funny than anything else when Cass gets all Grave And Serious
yelling and hurling threats and being a weird little rageful creep are apparently her main emotional coping mechanisms.
sidony is real bad at talking and words
nevarra city's whisper network is run by a blond elf named cyrros and I adore him, he is such a darling asshole.
"Poor Nicolas is absolutely beside himself." [...] "If I were forced to choose between eating that rat over there and being considerate of Nicolas Reinhardt's feelings I would eat the rat." "Come now," Cyrros laughed. "Have some sympathy! Someone was murdered in the man's home last night!"
that's it that's sidony's and cyrros' dynamic. She is a caustic asshole and he has a laff.
sidony calls the nobles cyrros' pets i'm living
:c cyrros ded bc sidony has no impulse control and she got real mad about being played a bit too long
sidony is greatly resentful of being seen as a tool/used/played for a fool. Vengeful to the point of murdering people. She is consistently shown to be easily angered, with little patience and great need to prove herself, be independent and also deeply insecure. It seems like literally the only positive relationship she ever had was to Lord Henrik and she is deeply unsettled by the thought of like. disappointing him/his legacy/failing him now he's dead? Basically he was the only person who never used her and as much as she saw him as a jailer more than as a teacher or father while he raised her, now he's dead she regrets not reconnecting with him.
Prefers Lightning, drain life and horror spells for combat as well as raising corpses
she resents cassandra and the inquisition for using her too. Like. To the point of being petty in narration about cassandra prioritizing the inquisitor over her flat out refusing to go to nevarra city.
fixed some formating and also added something
Candidates for bonsai already started/that could be propagated properly if they end up rooting:
- willow selection, slightly tall cuttings but whatevs (cascading weeping willow, windswept corkscrew, two-trunk or maybe rockbound for the flamingo willow)
- cherry branches if they go to root (no concept yet, i'm mostly loathe to let them go to waste if the do root, might do a broom or raft style)
quick starter project i could do
- cascading/half cascading rosemary trained from potted supermarket rosemary. I don't give a shit i will do all of these from free plant estate
other potential candidates:
- yose-ue/forest style arrangement from the multi-colored dogwood
- quince, leaning maybe. need to wait till june to take propagation cuttings
- lilac.... leaning maybe? i can't do everything as cascading or windswept no matter how much I want to........ >_>
Need t purchase:
blank wax seal stamp
pots for bonsai project probably................
find out what fertilizer and substrate is used most for bonsai beginners probably just fucking go 'nah' anyhow
got multicolored dogwood cuttings bc i mean fuck it right
2 or 3 months until they root and can be put into yearling planters to encourage further proper rooting
mid term/short term, consider a geranium, rosemary or getting a young red maple to practice wiring and styling
my family is also calling me a tryhard for learning the proper Classic Shapes already bc im Over Achiever Man Achiever Of Overs
also lowkey wanna set aside one of my pretty notebooks for planning and sketches and such..... might do that i have a pink one with gilded page sides and a locking mechanism that's good for travel
have done.... the planning notebook set up
actual started/available/planned bonsai projects:
- willow cuttings, mixed, 5 hoping to properly root down at least 3 (cascading weeping willow, windswept corkscrew, two-trunk or maybe rockbound for the flamingo willow, weeping willow looks sad and unhappy, no clue if it'll take)
- cherry cuttings, if they root
- jade plant cuttings mom scavenged from school
- multi colored dogwood for yose-ue
- several Mystery Plants (tm) we took out of the flower beds and stuck in pots (they're most likely willows, who knows what kind tho, one has a lovely windswept character already despite being fresh yearlings, that's my favorite and i'm gonna take it unless sib REALLY wants him)
- BIG PROJECT: a rowan root over rock arrangement set over a concrete replica of the fen'harel wolf statue from DA:I
dream project for when i'm more experienced and also have the knowledge and capability to care for a more fussy tree:
- red tsubaki/camelia set over a robot soldier from Laputa: castle in the sky, ideally the 1/20 scale fine molds assembly kit from 2011 or a replica of that
also i should note my style is all over the place between western influence, japanese and chinese from the looks of it BUT OH WELL
