DON'T LOOK UP VLR ART lol oh man fanart and official art can be so spoiling! :) I hope you enjoy the rest of the twists!
YEAH I figured as much, I have practically everything related to it as well as just “spoilers” blacklisted in general right now. I figure the fandom for any game where practically every character as well as the entirety of what’s going on is a complete mystery it’s pretty much impossible to avoid spoilers.
Heck, I know I have a hard enough time even referring to certain characters from similar games without giving away at least something just because the nature of who/what they are practically makes their entire existence a spoiler.
Choose “Betray” and you feel like a terrible person, with most of the other characters rubbing it in your face to boot
Choose “Ally”, everyone makes you feel stupid and you’re probably gonna die
Also there’s like 5000 locks holy cow. It’s like there was ONE in 999 and then they’re just like “Yeah, let’s turn this up a notch”. So far I’ve only hit 2 “real” endings, a couple bad/”game over” ones and like 5 locks
I’m practically putting off the endings where I have to betray Luna for last too, I know I probably have to get them to complete the game but I can’t bring myself to do it hahah…
I also wanna look for fanart so badly but considering the nature of the game the spoiler potential is way too high…. OTL
The scanlation group, September Scanlations (Most famously advertised by Tumblr user fencer-x, its leading translator) knowingly scanlates and publishes doujin on her site which the artists don’t want distributed anywhere. There are two known cases where artists have asked them to take them down, and after they do, she’ll immediately turn on her fans and tell us not to mention it to them. Because if they know, they’ll make her take it down.
Just recently, they completely blocked all Japanese IP addresses in an attempt not to let artists find out about their scanlations. It’s all in the name of “helping” the fans who would normally not have access to them, but when is genuine theft ever okay? As an artist, I would never be able to sit and be alright with something like this, whether I was intending to give them permission or not. The fact that they don’t ask, and that they truly don’t care is wrong, and I can’t stand idly by.
Yes, while she does take them down when they ask, it’s not like she’s giving them any sort of chance to ask in the first place now.
The site they posts all her scanlations to is September Scanlations. Here, they have quite a few doujin, for many fandoms, including Free!, Haikyuu!!, No.6, Uta no Prince-sama, K Project, and a few others. I ask that if you can’t report these transgressions to their original artists, then you should support them by simply no longer reading these doujinshi. It’s not fair to them, and it needs to stop.
Egh so I want to read the Battle for Meridell plot but the comic seems to be broken for me in that it loads all the speech bubbles/etc on top of each other instead of letting you hover over like the plot comics normally do… I don’t think it’s an issue with my Flash player though, all the other comics are working. Also apparently it’s been this way since 2009?
Does anyone know if there’s somewhere else I can read it……..?
Do you ever just sit back and realize how many of your old online friends who used to adamantly type grammatically correct don’t anymore
And then realize you’re kinda the same way
I almost feel like there’s been this weird shift. Years ago, almost everyone I knew typed correctly and tended to lace their casual speech with text emoticons (xD and :3 everywhere) to get their tone across.
Now it’s like… this new form of stylized speech that’s developed on Tumblr and I’ve seen spreading to other places as well.
I’m just kinda commenting because I think it’s interesting, not looking at it as negative thing but… yeah.
Team Magma:Humanity owes a great deal of cultural development to the invention and growth of agriculture. By spreading landmass using volcanic means - as historically, volcanic soil is heavy in nutrients and therefore ideal for agriculture - we can provide better care for the people of this region, new homes and environments for wild fauna and people alike, and have more room for agricultural and developmental pursuits.
Team Aqua:SHIVER ME TIMBERS, SWIMMING IS A LOT OF FUN
Clearing up fandom misconceptions about a character and cracking down on problematic and/or petty reasons people don’t like them (“they’re feminine” “they’re fat”, “mary sue”, etc) is good
But defending a character by practically going “this character had a rough past and emotional situation so all their harmful actions are justified and if you hate them you’re wrong” is kinda messed up……..
