I love how she almost drops it until she smells it and that flashbulb memory hits.

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real … Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

The animal shelter I volunteer at calls cats like that a “bonded pair.” Any time we have a couple of cats like that in a kitty condo, there’s always a note on the door recommending that they be adopted together. It’s actually kinda cute.

Cia Controversy -Sexy/Sexual VS Sexualization-

lambengodwin:

~Small Note: This was was originally intended for yet another complaint about people “trashing” Cia. The post has since been deleted while I was in the progress of typing this up, but I’ve decided to finish it and send it up anyways.~

Though I’ve seen many of these aforementioned posts since Cia was first revealed (as well as many solid counter arguments -ignored I suspect), I haven’t gotten around to bothering with this.

However, now that the games has been released, people are starting to complain about the people who were criticizing her… except I have seen hardly anyone actively doing so with the exception of a of couple people.

As of now, I’ve started working on replying and countering against people bringing up this crap a couple days- about three now -and I guess I’m in it for the long haul and I’ll be continuing this for who knows how long.

Onto the actual main point, for all of the people who think we’re complaining about Cia being sexual. For those people who think we’re complaining about her being sexy. For the people who think we’re even complaining about her showing her boobs:

There is no problem with any of that. We literally do not care about any of those things. There is no problem with her being sexy (heck, even armored people could be- Ganondorf) or ”“”too”“” sexual, whatever that means.

So then, what is the problem? The problem is that Cia is being sexualized. Sexual vs. sexualized. They have completely different meanings and connotations.

The idea behind the sexualization of a character- specifically women -is that they are designed specifically to cater to men. They are “eye candy”. They are designed so that particular parts of the character’s visual are far more focused on than anything else.

This isn’t about the “choice” of how a character chooses to display themselves. It has nothing to do with “showing their confidence.” All of these decisions are made specifically by the character’s designers. They designed her to be like this.

It is quite specifically stated in the Hyrule Warriors art book that her design was made to counteract Lana’s and symbolize her greed. Except that is the most illogical comparison. From the very beginning, Ganondorf’s greed (specifically for the Triforce) never did such a thing for him. If anything, he turned into a pig to symbolize his greed. He turned into a monster.

And here on the other side, they decided to design her that way to represent her greed? The only explanation here is that they literally designed her to attract the male gaze and in the end all it does is objectify her.

It objectifies women. It makes them nothing more than objects.

Therein lies the problem that we have with Cia.

Well, to be fair, Cia’s greed is for Link. Her entire reason for going evil is her jealousy of his relationship with Zelda, so the sexy outfit as a symbol of that selfish desire does make sense. That doesn’t change the fact a woman going evil due to love and jealousy is a pretty sexist cliche itself.

I wish HW kept Link’s daughter as a character, but I can understand why they didn’t.
I had a hard time trying to figure out how to translate Rinkuru… Rinku is LInk. So Rinkuru is…? Linru sounded the best to me haha;;;;

Don’t know if you’ve heard, but that’s not supposed to be his daughter. That’s supposed to be a female Link. The art book described her as being “little sister-like” and some people mistranslated the kanji for sister to daughter (or thought that it was saying she was his sister in some cases).
Considering the plot and the fact that Link is generally supposed to be a teenager in most incarnations, it wouldn’t make sense for him to have a daughter anyway (unless they pulled an FE: Awakening and time travel was involved… and time travel was kind of involved, but not that kind).

Did Anet buff some of the world bosses? The last time I fought the Great Jungle Wurm in Caledon it ate a husk and regained just about half it’s health, and the Golem Mk 2 took longer to go down than usual.

I guess the first thing could be something that people usually manage to prevent happening like Taidha’s teleporting, but I have been doing world bosses for a couple weeks now, so.

dear nightmare court, gairwen friendzoned me :( misandry

XD That’s what happens if you have take the story path where Gairwen gets the Green Knight to take his helmet off? I guess I should’ve taken that path.

I’m insane, please stop me.

Or at least someone other than me put this to use. I currently farm 5 keys a day and my best run is 24:03.

AT LEAST IT’S NOT LIKE TF2 CRATES, RIGHT?

The only thing I can’t figure out is how you get the better quality armor and staff without level requirements? The two runs I did got slowed down because I had to get my toon to level 5.

I heard that using runes on the gear is what makes it account bound instead of soulbound somehow, but no one explains where to get the armor/weapon to start with. »;

On the Black Lion Trading Post if you specifically set the search parameters to a 0 - 2 level range, Armour category, Basic Rarity you can find all the Mighty Chain equipment. Those runes I’ve shoved into my keyfarming set haven’t soulbound them at all and are definitely more than enough Power necessary to blow through it all.

Unless it’s been patched or something recently, I’ve had no trouble bouncing this set of armour with those specific runes between key characters. But even if they have patched it, things should’ve changed and I shouldn’t be able to flip them around.

It’s about 13 silver to get the Mighty Chain stuff.
2 silver to get the runes and sigils.

Now here’s the weird thing.

I got my Mighty Soft Wood Staff for like… 25 silver just earlier tonight. Checking now, it’s like 84 silver. There’s an equivalent Power option for only 15 less maximum damage range, and that’s the white quality Mighty Staff for only 2 silver.

Same amount of bonus power, slightly less damage overall, still has two upgrade sockets. But considering damage doesn’t super matter at a level this low, you can just safely grab the Basic staff. Avoid spending nearly a gold on it.

Alright. Thank you.
