Happy 159th Birthday, Sherlock Holmes!
“My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don’t know.”
I really like how all the dwarfs are pretty ugly
then you have kili, supermodel of middle earth.
I like how the dwarves look, they’re pretty sexy. Back the fuck up though, people, let’s not make it all out like having a conventionally “pretty” one is something of an achievement worthy of praise for the whole race un. M’honestly not trying to stir up shit, just getting real tired of all the,”dwarves can’t be attractive!” like it’s a goddamn character trait. This isn’t a post directed to attack at any one specific person btw~
Seems to me that given Martin Freeman’s deadpan, forthright-to-the-point-of-meanness, take-no-shit-from-fools attitude, and Stephen Colbert’s let’s-see-just-how-far-I-can-take-this arrogant schtick, tonight’s Colbert Report is going to be either a riotous meeting of kindred spirits or a bloodbath of sarcasm and bullshit-calling. Good times!
Similarities have been drawn to this game and Tokimemogs which is what first sparked my interest. But then I heard it was from the same people that produced Frozen Essence, one of the more widely touted english freeware otoges and I had to give it a try. The prologue wastes no time in personalizing your experience, with name, birthdate and questions designed to get a better grip on the character being created. The actual introduction to the catalyst for this title being in the supernatural category is rather sink or swim which alarmed me a bit since I was thinking it’d be a slow submersion. But no, you get literally waylaid by Vi (the baby Virus who does a great impression at being an alien lifeform) on the route to school in the first day.
The explanation for h@x was explained pretty decently but I’m still kind of reeling from the easy establishment of premise and all the freedom to choose so I might be glossing over that a bit. I like that the individual players have their own music (which incidentally, is a bit quirky and fun) and scenes that gradually trickle through instead of all at once. Also loving the help screen right on the side to explain but I’m a bit swamped from not playing otoges recently so I’m off to look for tips~!
It’s pretty amazing to see just what can be done in Ren’py and I have nothing but respect and applause for the work put into this. Go check it out and comment, un.
the first time you crack my spine, you will be too young for me. lent and spent, dogeared, i will weather your sticky-fingered touch with the bad grace of library books everywhere, handled without care for years without end and plastic-coated, built to withstand the worst of humanity. you will throw me in your backpack and the next time i see the light of day will be at a double-header baseball game, patchwork men yelling peanuts in the distance and your brothers shouting for home. you will hide me in the folds of your oversized sweatshirt and callously drip mustard from your corn dog onto my twelfth page, and i will feel it smear and stick against my thirteenth and hate you, hate you, hate you. i will twist my language to obscurities that your youthful eyes will find obscene; i will press my letters together until you are forced to squint against the sinking sun; i will slice open the pad of your index finger once, twice, and nevermind the blood.
you will return me, abandon me, forget me. i will have known
when you find me again, adulthood will not yet be yours, but you will be a far cry from childhood; you will tuck me carefully beneath your arm and walk me through the library doors yourself. when you crack my spine, you will let one bitten nail drag lightly down my pages, and your touch will be soft enough that i will forgive you the child you once were. you will be the first person in half a decade to take the time to unstick my twelfth and thirteenth pages, and when you see the caked, yellowed stain there you will laugh, wondering, as though you know it was you that left it. as though you remember me. i will open for you, this time, as i refused when we first met, showing you all that i can bear to this early—you are young yet, untrusted, and i will not reveal to you nuances scholars have missed. still, it will be enough, and you will keep me hidden under your duvet until well into the night, a flashlight caught between your cheek and shoulder so you can see every inch of me, even in darkness.
lent and spent a thousand times over, and no reader will ever have seen me
as you shall.
OH MY GOD. OH YOU ARE SUCH A PRECIOUS. OH LORDY I CANNOT. AFJLSDTIOWEROSDJF OKAY SO LIKE, I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU BECAUSE WELL…BECAUSE I HOPE YOU LIKE IT AND AND I’M EXCITED BECAUSE IT’S THAT FIRST EXPERIENCE AND AAAAHHHHH-
Pardonnez. Right but like, yes I do apologize. There’s a pretty distinct line from when I was and wasn’t in the fandom and I kind of blush to recall that but yes yes yes yes yes soon it will all make sense. Dearly dearly wish you the best of this experience even with all it’s flaws un.
And yup. Now I will have to finish that BBC Sherlock fanfic reclist.
“We’re not meant to be one person,” Sherlock says before they go to sleep — the bed’s barely big enough for two boys to share, lying side-by-side, and their shoulders bump. It feels a lot like Mycroft imagines a sleepover might feel like, if he’d ever gone to one.
“We can’t be. We’re too smart to ever be one person.”
Just to let everyone know, the English release date for Dandelion has been announced: it will be released on Friday, December 1st, 2012! That’s not even a week away!
I know you’re all excited, so enjoy the English subtitled opening for the game in the meanwhile~
