I still struggle with body dysmorphia, but whatever.  I gotta get stronger, gotta get leaner, gotta get endurance-ier.

For what it's worth, I think you're amazing. I've only seen pictures, but you've changed to much the past decade.

The same goes for Agent D., by the way. Whenever he mentions the weights he's lifted, I try to imagine how much that is. Like, three mes. Or one of those ponies I used to ride when I was little. I can't help but be impressed.

Yeah, and the only reason she manages is because everyone else does the important stuff.

Avatar: *makes a dumb decision, again*
Everyone else: *makes sure it doesn't cause too much damage*
Everyone else: [Avatar] is amazing!

(And the tea thing felt a bit like a personal insult. Making good tea is not hard. You just have to know what you're working with, and after that most of it is measuring - amount, temperature, time - it's simple.)

which meant all the women there ended up in the kitchen.

Isn't that where all women are supposed to be?   :/

Couldn't resist

Moving to the kitchen was a tactical decision, as it gave us access to all edible resources, not to mention to ability to distribute them (or not!). It was our fortress. If you think women deserve a fortress, thank you!

^Because you can't or because you don't want to?

My haps... The magazine manager is trying to organise a gettogether, but I'm not sure if I want to go. I know I should go. I'm 'important' and they want me to prove I'm not a jerk, but I'm no good at this social stuff. The last meet-up I liked was the one where I could hide out in the kitchen and play strategy games with the girlfriend of one of the writers (which meant all the women there ended up in the kitchen. oops.).

Hey that sounds like fun!

Ever since a bunch of my gaming friends moved and stuff I miss being able to do the random things like that.


It was fun. That event was actually a farewell party (the magazine we wrote for went bust and as a goodbye, we threw a small thing for us and loyal readers), but I had a good time (in the kitchen, where human interaction revolved around tea and games).

Actually, that event came up elsewhere just now. Me and another guy both ended up writing for the same website, and he just arranged a review code for me. He was like "One download code for our Queen of Fire Emblem", and I said "There won't be much left of that title once I start playing Atelier Sophie...". Which is the truth, because I'm going to binge play the crap out of it. However... "L. was the one who came up with it." "Wait, what? Is this from the farewell party?" And it was. Turns out she still uses my team to measure the quality of hers. This makes me feel really proud and nostalgic ;_; Maybe we'll be able to have an online versus match in Fates soon. That'd be nice.

Today was a good day.

Well, the eyes do like they're 'down there' instead of 'up here'.

Then you should have married Azama, not poor lil' out-of-character Sakura, you meanie! :(

Azama and his absurdist tendencies are fun, though, I'll admit that. I just like to keep him far away from certain characters.

Who did I pair him with this playthrough... Oh, yeah, Felicia. She seems kind of immune to some of his bullshit, as in, it bounces right off. I'm not entirely sure that's a compliment (it probably isn't), but their supports are a lot of fun. S rank is pretty decent too. More of a 'let's spend more time together and find out if this works' rather than 'let's get married NOW'. Of course, this doesn't work all that well with Fates' breakneck 'meet-marry-make babies' pace, but good for them, acting like normal people and all that!

But but but.... I'm a dude!  A hetero one!

Details, details...

And besides, Sakura liked him the whole time anyways, why do you think she had such out-of-character reactions to him?  She was like "Rowr, he's a sweet piece of man candy" and then he was a total jerk and she was so disappointed and yet so attracted....

Sakura's confession came out of nowhere. I mean, sure, it's far from the only S rank that does the while 'I've always liked/loved you!' thing, but some atleast make sense, like Oboro and Takumi.

Maybe I am reading too much into all these support convos.  Also, their daughter has a massive crush on me, even though I'm married to a sexy ninja.  Girl's a bit messed up, but I guess I shouldn't have spent all that time studying poetry alone with an impressionable young woman.  Seriously, what the heck is wrong with my character?

Well... atleast we aren't systematically molesting everyone in the army in the US/EU version? Well, not technically anyway...

On a related note: my avatar disappoints me all the time. She spend all that time cooped up in a castle but doesn't seem to have learned anything aside from some basic sword fighting skills and, I dunno, playing with a ball. Meanwhile, all the other royals seems to have a aquired a wide range of skills. Good job wasting most of your young life, avatar!



Anyway as for female Fates chars I think the coolest chars are Orochi and Azura...


I don't know how I feel about Orochi. She can be a bit of a bully sometimes.

I'm getting tired of Stranger of Sword City... The final dungeon is such a pain in the ass. I'm grinding for better equipment to stand a better chance (finally found some better undergarments!), but right now I just want it to be over and done with.

So... I've been reading support convos I didn't (and have no plans to) get in the game, and the more I read, the more baffling the whole marriage thing became. Couples with actual romantic chemistry are so rare. Worse, many continue to be awkward well into their A support. For instance, why is AzamaxSakura an option? Dude is a jerk, poor girl barely gets the chance to say anything, and when she finally does, she yells at him to stop (and rightfully so). Azama gives an amulet to apologize, which is an fine conclusion to the support line... unless you get to S rank, where he mentions the amulet was meant as a proposal and they're now getting married. Ew. You know what we call guys like that over here? Target practice.

I joked about Leo x Takumi before, but you know what? After reading all those supports, I'm forced to conclude they're some of the rare characters that manage to build a meaningful relationship within those three support conversations. Them taking the step from BFFs to boyfriends would be way less weird and awkward than the avarage S-rank.

(... And they would be pretty cute together. They can, like, work through their issues together and stuff. ... Ah, damnit. Now that the Nina-goggles are on, they'll never come off again!)

I got a pair of All Star sneakers. Never had those before. But... I'm not sure how I should feel about wearing hand-me-downs from my 11 year old cousin. She grew out of them almost instantly, so... yeah. I mean, I have more clothes that are technically for children, but this is the first time since my little sister was a teen that I got childrens' clothing from an actual child.

The haps is I've been going through a different documentary every other day, it's amazing how often this stuff pops up in video games like in Sumerian history Ishtar in like Catherine or whatever.

I'm still trying to figure out if the average Fire Emblem plot is meant to say 'Russians are stupid, let's kick their ass (in a safe fantasy setting)'.

Damnit, I accidently took a nap. Again. My head feels like it's filled with cotton. I'm not even sure if I should be happy I woke up so close to bedtime or regret it even more.
13  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: May 20, 2016, 02:01:54 PM
Please tell me people don't try to eat one of those on their own. It's meant to be shared with some friends, right? Please tell me that's right.

dietary disasters like the infamous patatje kapsalon.   

That seems down right healthy in the land that put a double bacon cheeseburger between two over-glazed donuts.

I don't understand why anyone would want to eat something like that. It's just one big stack of salt, sugar and fat.

So, uh, what is typical American fast-food anyway? I know about stuff like burgers, but what else is there?

Here in the Netherlands greasy fast-food is one big clusterfuck of cultures. Anytime a significant amount of a new culture is added to the mixing pot, Dutch fastfood gains new ingredients. For instance, most Chinese restaurants serve a combination of Chinese and Indonesian foods, and the snackbar segment of the industry turned that into things like bamischijven. There are dozens of ways to serve fries, many have names that make little to no sense. Een patatje oorlog (fries war-style) comes with (Dutch) mayonaise and, depending on the region, curry or peanut sauce and perhaps finely chopped onions. I read we call it a 'war' because the end result looks like a battlefield. A patatje samurai comes with mayonaise and sambal (this one probably has racist origins. There's this stereotype that people who work at Chinese restaurants can't speak Dutch and ask 'Sambal bij'. And since so many people don't know the difference between China and Japan... Not to mention that sambal isn't even Chinese...). More recent 'inventions' include dietary disasters like the infamous patatje kapsalon.

I don't really care for fast food chains, but I kinda like knowing there are Subways everywhere. I like the veggie subs. However, I've only ever met one employee who made them perfectly. The perfect amount of everything distributed perfectly.
