Death threats drive Anita Sarkeesian from her home

missveryvery:

yep, no problems here!

Considering that Anita Sarkeesian has been doing similar cultural criticism in all sorts of areas before she took on video games, this is basically objective proof that gamers are the worst.

I have a guilty-until-proven-innocent assumptoin when it comes to male gamers because of exactly this kind of shit. Overall they are scum.

Anonymous asked: Surprise a beautiful person! Once you get this, you must put it into at least 8 people’s asks (anonymously) who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing bad will happen, but it is nice to know that someone thinks you’re beautiful inside and out!

Thank you, kind anonymous <3.

aedancousland asked: ★ re. singing or music in general for any of the Tophat's OCs?

Agnes teaches themselves how to play the harpsichord, and finds that playing it soothes them during particularly pernicious anxiety spirals. They also learn how to play the fiddle from a friend in the Hanged Man.

. Vuri Surana has chaetophobia, and keeps their hair shaved or closely cropped. After the Blight, she finds a counsellor who she feels safe enough with to begin tackling it.

. When Oleda Aeducan returns to Orzammar, she uses her politcal acumen status as Paragon to undermine Bhelen so thoroughly that she eventually becomes Queen. She pushes for wide-scale reform and is viewed by many as the one who brought Orzammar into a golden age.

. Sebka Brosca develops a fondness for gardening after arriving on the surface, and she learns all that she can from Vuri about botany and herbalism. She also discovers a previously unknown type of flora which is named then named after her.

. Sarunen Mahariel has a small portable altar dedicated to Mythal. She crafted it together with her guardian, Ashalle, when she was fifteen, and it is one of the most precious things she owns. She sings Mythal’s hymns each evening, and prays for the All-Mother to watch over and guard Ashalle.

. Ione Lavellan adores roses. When she was in the Circle, she also propagated the practice of yellow roses being used by aromantic mages in Ostwick to indicate a desire for friendship and queerplatonic bonds.

. One of Dale Tabris’s most favourite of past-times is parkour - a skill learnt through Adaia’s tutelage. When in Denerim, Dale and Sebka often wander off together to hone their skills, and upon becoming a monarch, Dale enjoys showing Sebka their favourite niches and roosts within the palace.
