Is bribing them with Brownie cakes into submission a possibility?

Them being so easy to bribe is actually part of the problem...

Okay, it's not exactly bribes, but they do get distracted by shiny things they shouldn't want. There's this constant clash between mentalities. Some of them are stuck in their old fanzine mentality, believing they should be allowed to do what they want as long as it pleases the fans. Meanwhile, I (and a few others) have a much more professional attitude, which you think would suit a magazine that's being sold professionally. Sadly, the fanzine crowd has most of victories because they have more decision making power... It makes everything feel really pointless.

You don't have to marry a second gen or pre-promoto to get all the units, though. Everyone is an option - it's the power of an extra pair of ovaries!

Or you could just marry one of the royals' children and create the biggest clusterfuck imaginable. Like, marry Camilla to Ryoma, then marry Shiro. I mean, if you're going to make things weird for everyone, might as well make it as weird as it could possibly be.

Have I mentioned lately how much I hate some of the people I have to work with?* Well, I hate them. 

On the bright side, our comic artist's reaction to my script for the next comic strip was "OMG, that's absolutely hilarious!", which makes having to do work at 9PM slightly less annoying, and helped my self-confidence level up to something slightly less pathetic.

*I probably have.

We just got to cake batter, brownie batter may be too advanced for a rural town like this. Maybe in a few years...

I wish FCBD was a thing over here. It sounds like fun (it's possible to get some of the free books from online comic shops, but the ones I know require you to pre-orders months in advance. That's the opposite of fun).

Anyway, I ate ice cream today. Whoever decided 'cake batter' needed to be an ice cream flavour deserves a medal.

O god, please no, not Arthur...

More seriously, I have no idea who my husband would be if I was a female. The selection really is not good from my perspective. Fuga maybe?

What's your type? I'm sure we can find you a only somewhat disappointing good husbando if we know what we're looking for. Personally, I'd recommend the tsundere archer, but I know that's not for everyone.
52  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New 3DS Fire Emblem Fates on: May 07, 2016, 02:19:01 AM
Wow Tomara! You managed to really um, get a lot of stuff in there you have a very active brain I think. =-)

Probably! But it helps that Takumi is one of the few characters with an actual personality. His support convos are varied and his personality actually ties into the plot (poorly, but hey, atleast some effort was made...).

A lot of other characters only get two traits or so and that's their entire thing. Support convos often go: Trait Person A + Trait Person B = conversation.

53  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New 3DS Fire Emblem Fates on: May 06, 2016, 04:12:50 PM
Well then, recommend me a husbando that's better than Takumi!

(Of course, the main reason I'm attaching real feelings to a fictional character is because I see a lot of myself in him. (Aside from the pineapple hair - mine hasn't looked pineapple-y in a couple of years now!) So, uh, this whole thing might be me telling myself it doesn't have to be like that. Hey, don't look at my post like that, I mentioned before marrying Takumi would be weird for reasons outside of the game! Let me be fucked up in peace while I prepare to kick some German ass.)
54  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New 3DS Fire Emblem Fates on: May 06, 2016, 03:25:11 PM
I couldn't find it either and that kind of ruins my plans for now...

Anyway, I'm still playing on my Revelation file. There's a German with a fort almost as nice fort as mine, and I had trouble defeating him last time. That needs to be fixed. So, I'm fighting a lot of battles, which means the fort is going through it's day-night cycle at super speed. While I have long since maxed my husbando affinity, I keep visiting my room to raise support with other characters, and that's making me feel a little bad.

First of all, for some reason Takumi is usually asleep and the game forces me to wake him up. That's so mean. The poor guy is obviously tired from fighting all those battles and the whole suffering from gruesome nightmares thing. I want to let him sleep, but the game forces me to wake him up. And sometimes I'm accidently too rough and, well, that just makes me feel as if I'm a horrible person.

When he's awake, he's all like "I'm so glad we finally get to spend some time together!" But I'm like: "Nope, gotta invite the wolf girl over and pet her."

And at night it's: "Nope, gotta invite the fujoshi over. You know, you and Leo would be really cute together. I think I will discuss this with her (during petting) while you stand there awkwardly. With her imagination occupied, she hopefully won't steal anything from my room."

And the next day: "Nope, Xander is dropping by for petting. Yes, he is going to blush. This is normal human interaction according to the game we live in."

And later: "Nope, Niles is coming over. Remember to breathe when he suggests a threesome."

"Nope, petting a married fox guy this time."

So, basically, I'm emotionally neglecting a person with severely low selfesteem. When I get back to my room Takumi is always really happy to see me, and tells me how much he loves me*. He reminds me of a puppy. But sometimes, his mood suddenly drops and he asks if I love him as much as he loves me in this soft, sad voice, as if he can't believe anyone could actually love him. Even while being happily married (and having made a ton of friends!) in a timeline that doesn't hate his guts, his mind still wanders into some pretty dark places.

And for some reason, I care. WTF, game?!

(Okay, I know the petting isn't technically there anymore, but characters still have pretty awkward reactions, so in my mind it's happening, but just not shown.)

*He also says he could use a massage, sometimes, and I'm honestly kind of surprised Intelligent Systems didn't stoop that level. ... It would have been a more sane minigame than the 'blow in microphone' thing, though.

I could do some requests on a single (Revelation) playthrough? I'm getting a little bored of perfecting my fort and StreetPass squad anyway, so I might as well indulge in some Ta-chan's Husbando Adventure Fun Time. I could record the budding relationships, reactions to support convos, weird/cute/stupid things my husband says when he's standing around the fort being useless, level-ups...

Wait, can I take screenshots without using Miiverse? Does Fire Emblem Fates have a screenshot feature? I need to know.

I never read the manga. Maybe I should give it a shot, but I do know for a fact that the anime was loaded with filler. They actually ended the anime series several years before the manga finished because it just wasn't doing well and wasn't interesting at all. Compounding that was an experience I had at a book store back when the RuroKen manga was first being published in English. A crazed Inuyasha fan was also browsing the manga after having talked to me about Inuyasha for five minutes. When she passed the first volume of RuroKen she said that Kenshin "looked just like Inuyasha," and it made my eighteen year old self mad for some reason I don't remember. I know it's not fair, but I've had a distaste for Inuyasha ever since.

Don't bother. No, reallly, and I'm saying this als one of those teenaged girls that loved the series back in the day.*

It's one of those series that's the most fun when you get on the ride at the right time/age. Outside of that context it's just one of many fun shonenseries that went on for way too long.

Oh, and yes, the fans were (and probably still are) still annoying. I can only hope I wasn't too bad, but then again, my awfulness was probably contained by not having anyone to talk to.


Have a funny Youtube video.

*To the point where I bought the first volumes in three different languages. Started out in German, and when they announced it would be available in Dutch, I started collecting that edition. Then the Dutch manga industry died/was murdered by the Japanese publishers, and I turned my back on the series for a while. However, Viz suddenly started publishing those omnibusses and I was feeling nostalgic and, yeah, I finally own the whole series now.

Okay, prison, sure, but why not steal some actual clothes instead of accessoirising your current rags with more rags?
58  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New 3DS Fire Emblem Fates on: May 04, 2016, 03:31:33 AM
That's kind of the problem. I don't mind Soleil as a character, but having her as a (patched together) representative of lesbian/bisexual characters is kinda awkward. I think writers should save having fun with extremes until after there are more well-written, normal characters out there.
59  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How to complete Radiant Historia? on: May 03, 2016, 12:20:10 PM
I liked the battle system. I had a great time pulling/pushing enemies into traps.
60  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New 3DS Fire Emblem Fates on: May 03, 2016, 12:18:30 PM
How can you be all fluttery about her smile when Sophie's smile exists?

I like Soleil's confidence.

I do like Sophia as a character, though, and her cranky horse's antics make me feel kind of nostalgic. (The ponies at the place where I learned to ride were all little bastards. The one I usually rode, Liza, had a tendency to suddenly start walking backwards just for the heck of it. And the one time I rode Beetle, he turned a regular lesson into a rodeo. The instructor bought me a candy bar afterwards, because I set a great example for the others by not falling off. Oh, and Tranquil? That name was a goddamn lie.)
