A friendly reminder
No one is universally loved. Not everyone is going to like you or what you do. Some people will be very vocal about that, and will try to insult you and tear you down.
SO. WHAT. Don’t listen to them. Don’t spend time trying to argue with them. Spend your time and energy on being yourself, on becoming who you want to be.
Or, as the Kids Today say: fuck the haters. :-D
It took me nearly 33 years and Tumblr to work this one out. It’s true though.
If you claim Anora is evil, I definitely can’t trust you.
She’s a *bit* evil/scheming but in an awesome, does-it-cos-she’s-clever-and-needs-to-live-actually way. I imagine if people weren’t trying to treat her like an heir-factory or trying to kill her she and at least some of my wardens could go out drinking and taking over the world. And occasionally, in some games, when people ARE.
I do rather like Anora, she’s ace and much-unfairly-maligned.
Confession: Sometimes when in a bad mood or generally feeling bad about myself, I try to channel Isabela. It works remarkably often.
Not my confession, but could have been….
Reblog if you love River Song
Confession: After I played Awakenings, I wished Anders could have shown up wandering Ferelden and been recruited in DAO. Not to romance, but as a healer. Then I could send Wynne back to the Circle to annoy Irving instead of me.
… and maybe also to romance anyway?
I have been thinking for some time how terrible it would be if I didn’t hear from you all, and how strange it is that I have never actually met you and don’t know you outside of Tumblr. This Yahoo thing will probably be a total storm in a teacup, but I’m the paranoid sort,…
I was totally going to say ‘I’ll keep an eye out for you’ but that sounded really stalky. Imagine I said something normal… It’s late… :)
You’re quite right, I imagine the changes will be gradual, and the twitter’s a backstop measure while I get my act together on other online places to be. :)

With that in mind, I’ve set up a twitter lifeboat. I direct you all to http://twitter.com/chateauhaine (or search for @chateauhaine. I cannot believe that @chateauhaine wasn’t taken by the way).
Follow, don’t, I’m not seeking followers, I’m maintaining a way to keep in touch with the people who keep me sane. If you don’t Twitter, message me, we’ll work something out.
If this goes Horribly Wrong, I’ll lock the profile and approve you all as needed, don’t be shy of following if that’s the case.
Haven’t drunk seriously in three years. Half a bottle of Jim Beam may have been a mistake.
Anyone got a nifty tumblr trick for displaying my likes oldest- first? Trying to get at some old ones and tumblr falls over about 500 in….
