soooo me and a couple other people might be trying to put together a zine for next year’s spx and the theme is “fart stories”. still trying to puzzle out how it’s gonna all fall in place but just out of curiosity would anybody be interested in contributing? (short stories, essays, poems, illustrations and comics all welcome)
if anyone has questions or suggestions feel free to shoot me an ask. (this isn’t a hard and fast call for submissions btw its just puttin out feelers to gauge interest)
who wants to make fart stories and (f)art with nami and friends? :D
maybe a war over a misplaced fart maybe someone saying “bless you” when there’s a fart instead of a sneeze so many possibilities
HAVE you ever heard of the hoatzin. it is a Very prehistoric bird whose young are born with claws on their wings which they use to climb trees
and then the adult
actually a few other birds also have the claw/claws on chicks i just wanted to talk about this bird they eat nothing but leaves and they smell like shit literally their nickname is the manure bird
I actually really enjoy shipping in Fire Emblem, but ONLY IF THE REST OF THE GAME AND CHARACTERIZATION AND NARRATIVE IS GOOD. I also probably have very low fanservice threshold. So that means I am very, very mad that Fire Emblem: Awakening, for being a more “premium/high budget” game in the series, ended up being such a shallow/poorly curated experience that I still haven’t finished it. Ugghhhhh..
So while I am happy there are so many new fans to the series and hopefully they do get to play the older games, I also get annoyed with waifu/husbando/salivation over pandering. So maybe NEVER INCLUDE OVERPOWERED OVERLY IMPORTANT SELF INSERT AGAIN. Custom character should be side character material at best and shouldn’t be able to marry anyone. HAHA.
Supporting in Awakening seems so pointless sometimes despite the fact that they put in some of the best mechanics from other games, such as passing on skills to children characters, and adding paired battle mechanics.. but something seems off. And maybe it’s because the characterizations or interactions in supports are just terribly done or lack any significant impact because the plot and world building itself is so crappy. I feel that maybe FE9’s support convos were fleshed out best, but they probably needed more. And FE10’s was nice for allowing anyone/anyone pairing for battle. I just think it hurts the narrative if anyone could becomes bestest best friends or lovers to anyone. So a combination of both (shallow support anyone + unlock extended supports for compatible/narrative building combinations) would be best.
And my brother, who is also very much a long-time Fire Emblem fan has similar feelings as me. While he’s trudging through to get 100% completion on supports at least, I still haven’t gone past the last chapter because I still have to pick up the useless children in their side chapters (because I’m kind of a completionist when it comes to collecting characters at least lol). And I’m trying to pair people with the best chemistry because stats almost mean nothing in this game as far as I’m concerned due to no grinding cap. BUT ALL THE SUPPORT CONVOS SUCK SO BAD IT JUST KILLS MY MOTIVATION TO THE POINT THAT I DON’T EVEN REALLY LIKE ANY OF THE CHARACTERS. HELP ME. (I think Mirabelle, Henry, and maybe Lissa are okay for entertainment value though — they don’t make me cringe as hard when I get through their supports or I don’t get aggravated with overwhelming boredom — but they cannot save the game for me lol).
It also doesn’t help that most maps or objectives in FE:A sucks in variety too. They clearly spent most of their time and money trying to rile up moe feels and min/max tendencies from the audience instead of game depth.
If they ruin FE4’s remake with this (and give characters even more slick and questionable character redesigns on top of it), I will have a fit. lol
see I knew it
I’m actually really irritated now because a shit ton of tumblr NOW THINKS that changing the file format to JPEG (of all formats) will make your prints come out better.
I keep looking through all of these reblogs and clueless artists are going to have shitty quality prints because they were misinformed as to what actually matters, which is mode and dpi, NOT just simply file format (which should still be either .png or .tiff or something else loss-less).
I TOLD YOU NOT TO SAVE AS JPEG
.png for life because things that start with p are the best lol
only use .tiff if you are crazy and legacy or haave buttloads of hdd space. use .psd or .pdf for archival/editing purposes.
save in/convert to cmyk for print/colour calibration purposes. Though I don’t print too often so I don’t bother. save in 300dpi or more for print.
