The Hype Train: Obduction
#Rand the older one Robin the cute one and Ryan the bad boy#ahahh
Rod Miller not being involved with Cyan except for a very obscure bit of Uru lore (being the contact between Zandi jr and in-universe Cyan, if I remember correctly) is hardly reason not to mention him. Rude. :c
Also since when is Ryan the bad boy, choice of Uru NPCs notwithstanding?
I heartily agree with the author’s general sentiment but some turns of phrase and appeals to rhetoric left me a little puzzled? “In this age of Call of Duty, it might be difficult to understand how something so seemingly…demure could have taken up such a prominent place in more than a few hearts”, really? Right after praising the revolution that crowdfunding brought about? Journey is still PSN’s top seller, right? And knowing nerdy details such as Ryan being the one who wrote Atrus’ journals, but at the same time neglecting to mention that The 7th Guest predated Myst’s defining technology by some months?
ETA: I take it back, they do acknowledge the current variety later on! Very heartily agreed in general and in most details, I just… wanna know why Ryan’s the bad boy…
Ryan’s the bad boy because of Spyder, silly! :-D
Really, really good article. It’s amazing how much we all relate to each other’s reminiscences about playing Myst/Riven for the first time.
So the Sherlock fandom has Kid!lock, which got me thinking about Mike and Psmith as kids, sooo… Kid!Psmith?
The thought of nine-year-old Psmith is simultaneously adorable and terrifying.
My library is doing the ‘blind date’ with a book thing. If only I didnt have so much to read…
Whoa, I love this idea!!
I feel like this would be a fun concept for a book-swap party thing…
I’ve recently been reminded of my love for the Edge Chronicles book series, and felt the need to doodle some Cowlquape. Drawn without reference though, as I discovered after starting that my copy of the Twig omnibus is currently on loan to someone. I’m not even sure if I spelled his last name right! XD
Slender has always been able to read. He wasn’t taught, it’s just one of his basic senses. The same way the human brain registers color, Slendy’s brain registers written language, regardless of which language it may be.
This doesn’t mean he can write, though. Isolating the components that make a word a word is a difficult process for him, and he’d really benefit from some one-on-one instruction. His few attempts so far have come out looking more like scary, scary chicken scratches than anything remotely readable.
$100 Watercolor Commission - First Come First Served
My sister and I are hard up for rent money right now, so I figured I’d open up for a single painting commission on a first-come first-served basis.
It will be watercolor.
I will send you the original in the mail (free shipping, I’ll handle that).
$100 flat price, with no restriction on the number of characters it contains (no elaborate backgrounds, but there will definitely be some sort of fun color bursts going on).
My only stipulations are as follows: No characters related to magic please, nothing sexy, violent or holiday-related.
Here are some examples of my work:
Send an ask if you’re interested!
silascaptor asked: hey, i just wanted to say thank you. You were one of my first inspirations to become an artist, 5 years ago when i was 15 and in highschool, trawling around deviantart for phantom of the opera things to look at. now i'm 20, and a game art and design major at ringling college of art and design. so thanks for inspiring me. ^^
Whaaaaat?? No! I didn’t! I did??? You’re kidding me! Ah! Awww! Thank you so much for coming and thanking me like this! :-D
