I got 99 problems and it’s all cosplay .
Except freaking Jasmine
Haha, yeah. That’s because all the hard cosplays I’m bringing to Kumoricon this year are recycled from previous cons. At this point I mostly just need to get a leopard-print tank-top and a Burger King crown, really.
At the request of silverspleen, who was kind enough to give me an excuse to ramble on endlessly about my favorite character of all time, here’s that character meme for Wynn Hygeorht. That said, sorry about rambling on endlessly.
Everything under the cut (and there is a lot, unsurprisingly.) A few vague mentions of stuff from A Wind in the Night, but for the most part spoilers only go up through The Dog in the Dark.Read more
There’s a reason why I like both Anders and Meredith and I refuse to call either of them ‘evil’.
They both become obsessed with their respective goals after childhood trauma, and ultimately end up making all the wrong choices for all the right reasons.
They are not bad people.
They are people who really want the best for others and just repeatedly fuck it up. They both want the same exact thing, but are incapable of seeing each other’s sides and reasons objectively enough to come to any sort of peaceable resolution.
And the game just writes both of them off as monsters.
silverspleen said: HELLO WONDERFUL NOBLE DEAD SAGA POSTS. I LOVED YOUR ANALYSIS OF CHANE he is oft horrible and I like him too. Any chance you'd do the analysis of Wynn? Because the tidbits of things you wrote about her were great and I'd love to hear more, as I too have many many Wynn feelings and the general series 2 shift hate on her is gross.
Oh my goodness, I wish Tumblr had bothered to mention that this was sitting in my inbox! Thank you for your kind words and also for getting excited about Noble Dead with me!
I would love to write some more analysis of Wynn, but my biggest concern with that is that I would literally not shut up. (Wynn’s kinda sorta my favorite fictional character of all time, so.) Buuuut at the same time I’m always looking for excuses to talk about Wynn, and you asked so nicely, so I feel like I should probably do that now, huh?
I did just come back from a weekend out of state and I’ve got a lot of unpacking, decompressing, etc. to get through in the aftermath of that, but I’ll see if I can’t get around to that sometime this week!
Oh no rush, life and personal wellbeing are always a priority! It’s just always really exciting to find someone who knows about the series and is really well spoken and likes the same characters I do (last online conversation I had about TND was with someone who hated Chane for totally legitimate reasons, and so it was like yes these are all true things
but I like him anyway shhhwhich was fun but also made me feel a bit bad).
I have zero problems with a massive Wynn post. Massive Wynn analysis. Wynn anything.
Though it’s worth noting actually haven’t read A Wind in the Night yet because I buy the books in softcover and it makes me upset because Wynn and Chane and Osha and Shade is a big fat disaster recipe. My response to NDS spoilers is usually being even more excited to read the next book though.
#there are so few books left I have no idea what I’m going to do with my life so much time has been invested in fantasy vampires I can’t even#they just posted the cover to First and Last Sorcerer and I can’t handle anything right now
But, yeah, I’m always up for talking about Noble Dead, and I love pretty much every character in the series (although admittedly my feelings about Osha right now are pretty mixed and intense), and I know that it’s a lot more fun to talk about characters you love with people who at least don’t actively hate them.
