An all-you-can-process scrapbook of the internetly things I like best. +
I write Park City stories and Marauder fic.



Origin: Celtic

Andraste is the Celtic goddess of war. She is the mother of victory in combat and was invoked before battles to predict the outcome, and alter it to the invoker’s favor. Andraste was famously invoked by Boudicca and the Iceni people against the Roman forces. She is known as the “Invincible One” and her named means “She Who Has Not Fallen”. She is also a goddess of the lunar cycle and female fertility. Her sacred animals are hares and ravens.

July 15. You follow the wreckage throughout the new section of Dry Top to the Cavern of Shining Lights — the Ley Line Hub. As quietly impressed as I was with Uplands Oasis, the Cavern left me annoying Marcus with my infinitely looping “so pretty”s.

Kasmeer Meade: I’m so glad you’re here.
Kasmeer Meade: This place is amazing.
Marjory Delaqua: And brimming with bad guys. The Inquest are here.
Rox: We know how to deal with Inquest. Let’s clear this place out.
Taimi: Wait, Rox. Let’s be smart. Scarlet will have left security devices in place. They’re currently off-line, but if I can reactivate them, we can use them to our advantage.
Braham Eirsson: Awww. Can’t we just get rid of them the good ol’ fashioned way?
Taimi: You could, but they’d be back before you know it. Scarlet’s security can protect this area from future attacks. Clear the way to the first console for me.


Why Sex Criminals was simultaneously the best and most disappointing comic.

Aaaah, this answers the questions I’d been wondering but hadn’t asked. Maybe I’ll buy the first one and leave the rest to my imagination.

❝ It was badly done, indeed! You, whom she had known from an infant, whom she had seen grow up from a period when her notice was an honour, to have you now, in thoughtless spirits, and the pride of the moment, laugh at her, humble her–and before her niece, too–and before others, many of whom (certainly some,) would be entirely guided by your treatment of her.–This is not pleasant to you, Emma–and it is very far from pleasant to me; but I must, I will,–I will tell you truths while I can. ❞ 









The entire Mass Effect fandom is losing their shit.



Takano Kaitou. (not so) Dry Top.

July 15. As you can see, the gasp-inducing transition into the Oasis for the first time made me a little cap crazy. The Uplands Oasis is the first water I’ve really seen in Dry Top, though there is a dry well in the Town of Prosperity. Even the skill point in the area reinforces the specialness of this water:

The lush greenery and occasional soft rains of this oasis are a pleasant change from the scouring dust of the surrounding region.

If you happen to fall from the waterfall, the waters below have a mending effect, similar to GW1. I’m a little sad I didn’t get caps of the enthusiastic little watering skritt who helps tend to the garden at the far western end, but I’m sure I will someday. I arrived in the evening, which helped lend a mysterious quality to the place as I came through for the main Entanglement mission.

Thank you Pat Loika for another amazing shot of myself as Quentin Quire. This was the first time in his new look and a thick wool cardigan in San Diego summer is not fun.
The Marvel photo shoot was insane this year and if you ever have a chance to go, you should.

What fray was here? Yet tell me not, for I have heard it all. Here’s much to do with hate, but more with love.

A 22-month-old female scaredy cat tiger appeared to get the shock of her young life when she encountered a dead leaf floating on a pool of water in the Bandhavgarh National Park, India. Clearly unusure about just what was approaching her, the partially submerged youngster’s tail shot up in the air and with teeth bared she let out her most fearsome growl - all in an effort to scare the humble leaf away.

Takano Kaitou ft. Aler HernlockEntanglementScarlet’s Secret Room (part 2) and Dry Top.

July 15. The ground shakes once more, and this time at least we can all hold hands while the earth threatens to open up and swallow us whole.

Marjory Delaqua: So were you able to figure out what Scarlet was doing here?
Taimi (Inside Scruffy): She was studying ley lines. But I don’t—
Braham Eirsson: Hold on!
Kasmeer Meade: Oh! Oh! Oh my!
Kasmeer Meade: What’s happening?
Rox: Hey. Come look at this. There’s a passage behind this bookshelf.
Taimi (Inside Scruffy): What? Get out of my way! Let me see!
Braham Eirsson: Settle down. Let the boss go in first.
Taimi (Inside Scruffy): All right, but hurry up.
Rox: C’mon, Frostbite Let’s go.
Frostbite: (chirp)

Behind the bookshelf, we explored the secret tunnel. Books littered the floor and worn paper lined the walls. There were writings on Varesh Ossa and her strategy of forming alliances, Nicholas Sandford’s history of Dry Top (NICHOLAS!!) and a map seemingly showing where Scarlet’s route took her, deeper into the heart of Dry Top.


"It’s my first time here. I wanted to come to - you know you don’t go to Comic Con without going down on the floor and seeing it all, and so the way I came up with doing that was Spider-Man." - Daniel Radcliffe at the 2014 SDCC

“As far as Firefly is concerned, that will always be unfinished business. Serenity was a Band-Aid on a suckling flesh wound. I think every day about the scenes that I’ll never get to shoot and how badass they were. It’s nice to know that people still care about Firefly but it’s actual grief that I feel. It’s not something you get over, it’s just something you learn to live with.” - Joss Whedon
