So, you remember that time in 1897 when Quentin got shot with a silver bullet while in wolf form, but it didn't kill him because it didn't go through his heart? The bullet just lodged in his arm or shoulder or something, but it kept him incapacitated on the couch until sunrise and the transformation back to human form?
Now, it wouldn't be a cure, but I've always wondered why they couldn't try having Chris swallow a silver pellet a few hours before the full moon appears. He'd still transform, and he would probably be in pain, but he wouldn't be in any shape to go out and kill anybody, and he could probably just be confined to a regular locked room without chaining himself to the radiator or rushing to the secret room in the mausoleum. The silver would pass out of his digestive tract in the normal way. If he's going though one of those periods where he changes on the wrong moon, he could just take the silver pill every night.
It would be painful and not cheap, but maintenance treatment for lots of chronic conditions is painful and expensive under the American health care system. And I guess you could theoretically even reuse the silver if you wanted to pick it out of the patient's stool and sterilize it. But I'm sure Quentin and Barnabas could afford to supply a steady stream of small silver pills, and it's not like they don't owe Chris anything after failing to prevent the curse.

learning that one of the biggest factors about whether or not people develop ptsd (or other severe mental health issues) after trauma isn’t necessarily the severity of what happened but the ways in which we received or didn’t receive support, compassion, and understanding in our communities and in our personal relationships following the trauma.. life changing

I love both games but it genuinely wounds me that dragon age inquisition is considered a better written game than dragon age 2 in wider gaming circles.  
da2 does SO many interesting things, from its very deliberately paced and solid three act structure, its arc as a tragedy, its use of the frame narrative and the metatextual implications of a stated unreliable narrator -- all the questions surrounding how much of what we’re playing is the actual truth or where the narrative is distorted by the storyteller: varric extrapolating from what he does know in situations where he wasn’t present, like the romances, or even him openly admitting that he’s taking liberties because it makes for a better story, you can sometimes deduce he’s protecting someone b/c he’s basically talking to a templar cop lol, every so often he doesn’t actually know what happened but doesn’t believe cassandra will buy that -- or simply out of love, like giving hawke that talk with leandra at the end of the dlc even if she’s dead, because hawke deserves the closure and this is the only way varric knows how to give it to them. it’s a story about stories, and you’re playing as hawke but really you’re playing from varric’s perspective; his stories for making sense of the world. the city and people he loves and, as becomes increasingly clear as you play, his grief at what’s happened to them. it’s a character study of a guy you get to know through his stories in ways he probably wouldn’t let you in person. gameplay wise we have no choice but to engage in what he presents to us as if it’s truth, even when it’s obviously not. and on top of all that it takes the themes of unreliable narrators and how history gets written from all the dragon age games and fucking RUNS with it and it’s just so gooooooooood and interesting I want to cry.       
and like... don’t get me wrong, I have played a truly unconscionable number of hours of da:i, and it has great individual character moments and a lot of wonderful stuff. but overall, structurally, it’s just a fucking mess lol
#RIP corypheus who could have been genuinely really interesting and yet he is. that#dragon age#dragon age 2#on second thought let's not go to kirkwall it is a silly place#the archon and corypheus have very similar flaws tbh -- they're meant to have these really alien perspectives#but the writers go with standard bad guy stuff anyway because... reasons? IS ascension genuinely considered an honor among the kett?#then why is the archon using it as a threat?#is corypheus genuinely so devastated by the revelation that there is no god that he seeks to make himself one to fill the emptiness?#then why are his concerns so petty and pedestrian? (could be a good theme b/c he's still just a really old magister under it all#but I didn't buy it)#there's a lot of cosmic horror 'god is evil and indifferent to human life' influence in bw villains right back to the reapers#but they don't always manage to marry that thematic unknowable indifference with their actual role and dialogue in the games#I would have loved for cory to be even MORE human and fallible than he is actually#like have the last fight be him completely unraveled by despair because faith has failed him#instead of him taunting you he's just having a breakdown that threatens to destroy everything#and you need to beat him before he gets to it#I like the confusion and... vulnerability? sort of? of him in da2 a lot more than the straightforward blargh I am evil stuff in da:i#found this in my drafts and you know what? I am still right and I should say it#dragon age 2 daring to expose the player to the reality of powerlessness in a genre that reveres power fantasies? immaculate#sometimes you can do everything right and still fail. you gotta swallow that philosophical pill to understand this arc gamerz

i am reminded by a professor - once a person leaves, you will never love like that again.
how wonderful. i will love in a new way each time, then, for new reasons. i will find out that my heart never had a limit on joy. i will know new things.
he says - we can never find our way back to loving the same way twice.
i am not the same person from before, though, am i? why would i want to take a tour of my life through the same eyes? why would i want to hold the same figure-eight? why would i come back to what has already been shoved through my throat? why wouldn't i want to walk in a new garden, with new stones?
it is also never the same sunset twice. the same thunderstorm. the same birdsong. life, in little chaos, holds no ghosts. i will love again, and thank god, it will be different. i move on, and the world says - you will meet someone else, who knows a different way to listen. and when i put my ears against the music again, it will feel like i am understanding a new set of secrets.
how wonderful. my love does not run out. it is remade and recolored and unstained in doubt. gold hair, coffee, the shape of her mouth.

hey please know if i disappear and my body gets discovered 80 years from now, i will be wildly pissed off if you don’t leave me in the ground for archeologists to discover 800 years later. being a 800-year-old skeleton is objectively so much cooler than being an 80-year-old skeleton and would give me so much more clout in the skeleton community, don’t dig me up

September 4-5, 2021 - After the CW sniper decides to focus on Jake Abel for a change, Misha takes advantage of the situation and Says Some Stuff during a con.
Tumblr media
In the morning, Supernatural was still trending because of Jake Abel's video [x]. Fans were also discussing Misha's new PBS show [x] [x] [x]. And when things started to quiet down and Supernatural was no longer trending, Misha's panel happened. These weeks of quiet had truly been the quiet before the storm.
Several panels took place today during the Momento Con in Pittsburgh, PA - the schedule below [x]. However, it was Misha's panel that got the most attention [x].

Tumblr media
There were about 14 questions asked. A summary can be found here (screenshots of this Twitter thread available on Tumblr here and here) and on Clare Kramer's profile.

The part of Misha's panel that is being the most widely discussed right now is the one in which Misha discussed Cas' identity and said that Dean hadn't rejected Cas after the confession - that Cas saw love in Dean's eyes. The clip and transcript available here.
Misha is currently trending on Twitter.

Today is also Richard Speight Jr's birthday. Happy birthday! 🎂
