"… And, at any rate, you can already see what he looks like in-game. I believe his in-game model was posted on the BioWare blog in the December update. That still doesn’t tell you what he’s about, or gives you any better impression of what kind of LI he would make (as this is evidently the only purpose of characters)…
…But not every character is a LI. And, even for those that are, the art team is going to design their appearance to be interesting and tied to the actual character themselves…they’ll go for presence before they go for attractiveness... but if the idea is that all characters exist to first be pretty no matter their role in the game…then that’s simply not the case. Even for a character that’s a LI, if they’re someone you don’t personally find attractive…oh well? Guess you’ll have to find someone else or go without.”
don’t aspire to be a good person–– aspire to be who you are.
maybe i’m more or less alone in this, but I feel like there’s a lot of pressure to be a sexual person–– and not just being sexual, but also being open and very public about your sexuality. it seems sometimes like being sexual is considered “adult” and “cool”, as well as being a sign of edginess.
i don’t know how i feel about it. i’m sexual, too, but talking about anything sexual that really matters to me feels like i’m sharing something private, intimate and precious with people for whom the same information doesn’t hold the same meaning. i have a hard time handling the idea that anything precious to me might be treated cheaply, discarded, or mocked by another person. people have power over one another, and i don’t like stacking other people’s decks with the important things about me that they aren’t entitled to knowing.
i don’t look down on people who share their sexuality and stories about stuff they’ve done freely (i wish sometimes that i could be more public about myself, because i think it’d make me seem cooler, friendlier and more approachable) but it’s not something i’d discuss the important parts of with people i don’t know well. it’s difficult, and makes me uncomfortable.
I don’t think I’ve ever listened a song more relaxing than this in my life–– including those songs designed by sleep scientists to trigger sleep. Something about this makes my muscles unclench and my mind go completely blank. This, and Portal’s ambient music = awesome ambient relaxation music.
