Alright, that’s the second time in an hour KotOR 2 has crashed on me, I give up for at least tonight.
This started as an art blog. Still is when I can be arsed to post art of any sort. Posts are most frequently related to: Sci-fi and fantasy across all media from video games and films to tv shows foreign and domestic, my overwhelming leftist radical rage, and generalized snarky observation. I regularly get into discussions with my mutual-follow buddies and sometimes mumble about writing/the writing process.

who hurt my precious Juhani? the council? I WILL END THEM
Damn straight. Juhani is fuckin’ awesome and deserves better than a bunch of pissy-ass old farts declaring her DOOOOOOOOOOOMED because she got mad one time.

Juhani and Bastila are both really good examples of this. One slip-up and they both think they’re doooomed forever. And they’re hard to convince otherwise because they’ve been brainwashed for so long. Fuck the Jedi and Sith both
(also got your note re: Kreia so I’m a bit more pumped on KotOR 2)
BREAKING: Here’s what’s known now in Ferguson: Another young man has been killed, a 12-year-old boy in Dellwood. The boy’s shooting and the officer’s shooting are unrelated. However, a suspect that shot a female Ferguson PD Officer is currently being surrounded in a Ferguson-area house.
a reminder to please please please let me know if i’ve been gross or something because forreal
the struggle to unlearn shit is real as fuck and i make mistakes
i’m not perfect and i still do gross shit and i’m working on being a better person and creating safe places for people
i see so many posts that are like “ahhh a friend of mine did something gross and i don’t know how to tell them” like if i’m ever that person please let me know
Sometimes I get really intense feels about my Sith Juggernaut in SW:tOR, and I want to talk about it, write about it, something, anything.
Like how hard the academy was for him, how his instructors tried to crush every last speck of empathy and honor from him, how his defiant streak cost him a leg and a half, how he lost his right arm for showing mercy when they demanded bloodlust.
How he became a small, desperate, withered soul trapped behind an increasingly cold and even cruel veneer, certain that graduation would kill him. For even if he somehow survived, he knew the things he would have to do to win would surely snuff out the bright-eyed boy from a naval family on Dromund Kaas, replacing him with a burning-eyed monster that had stolen his face.
Until he found redemption at the last moment in the form of a twi’lek prisoner with an even sharper tongue than his.
But then I realize that there would be no audience whatsoever, that even those who played the same game have their own Sith warriors, their own private stories, so I do nothing.
*watching Clone Wars*
*sees episode about a deserter clone who shacked up with a twi’lek woman and raised a pack of cute little mottled blue/pink human/twi’lek kids*
*several days pass*

yesssssssss it does oh my god does it ever. Kreia is one of my favorite characters in anything ever. Unfortunately the game was released kinda…unfinished so it’s pretty rough to get into it
Ok. That’s pretty high praise, I will definitely keep going with it then.

As someone who only got up to the first planet, those first few missions are kind of boring to slog through. I just wanted my laser sword щ(ಠ益ಠщ)

I think so? I don’t actually remember it as well as the first, but I guess that kind of answers your question anyway. Although if I do recall correctly it kind of plays around with the idea that the lightside is just as bad as the darkside.
Cool. That’s potentially interesting, at least. I didn’t expect it to be as good as the first one but I didn’t expect to get so bored with it so quickly. Like, I ran around in it for probably three hours and I’m still on this stupid asteroid and I don’t know a damned thing about the plot or the companions really but hey, whee, I’m level four.
And like, hey, neat, there are all kinds of logs and things I can watch/read through to get a bunch of backstory… about… miners… and… maintenance… on a mining station…
And of course I know the HK unit is no protocol droid and presumably it’s a Sith assassin droid like HK-47 and it’s really obvious what it did but like… having to run around long corridors… fighting the occasional mining droid… with a vibro-sword… wearing a mining uniform… to collect the breadcrumbs… to put together… to solve the plot riddle and just be free of this damned place augh.
Does KotOR 2 get more interesting? Because I’m not even off the asteroid you start on and I’m just kinda… bored. :-/
