I'm a Graphic Design student and I'm actually not very good at that.

I blog about Tales of Symphonia, Abyss and Vesperia, occasionally about Fire Emblem, and whatever else that comes to mind.

My artblog is The Mistland and my Ace Attorney artblog is Turnabout Art

 

Fire Emblem: Awakening - The Right Choice

bossanovabyss:

Notes: MAJOR SPOILERS for late game. Big, big, big spoilers. Takes place on the path where fem!Robin marries Chrom. The dialogue at the very, very beginning, from Lucina, is taken straight from the game; the rest is an extension of the scene that we never got to see (well, as I perceive it, anyway). In addition, the quote, “just because the logic is sound, that doesn’t make it right” is credited to Lloyd Irving from the video game Tales of Symphonia.

Summary: Eavesdropping runs in the family. Unfortunately, the results aren’t always pleasant.

- - -

"Mother, I … I hope someday you will find it in your heart to forgive me. And I pray … that is, I trust the both of you will prove me wrong. That the future will crack and fall apart before our family bond ever does."

Lucina’s voice broke on the word future, splintered by a small, throaty wobble that betrayed the fresh tears that threatened to join the ones on her cheeks. Chrom placed a hand on her shoulder and gave it a gentle squeeze, and Lucina relaxed under his touch, though she didn’t look up at the reassuring smile he gave her. Soft footsteps broke the silence as Robin crossed the grass to join them, and like Chrom, she put a comforting hand on Lucina’s other shoulder.

"I already told you," Robin said, and Lucina looked up to meet her eyes, "that there’s nothing to forgive. You made the logical choice, no matter how hard it was. I’m proud of you, Lucina."

Chrom opened his mouth to say that he wouldn’t call Lucina’s decision logical, that pragmatism wasn’t always the right choice even if he didn’t necessarily blame Lucina for it in this case, but Lucina glanced to her left in the next breath and went rigid in Chrom’s hold at what she saw. As one, Chrom and Robin looked over to find Morgan standing a short distance away, his mouth open slightly, his dark brown eyes wide.

His eyes looked so much like his mother’s …

"How could you?" Morgan said, and though his voice was hushed, it shook with suppressed anger and betrayal. Lucina pulled away from Chrom and Robin to take a step forward, though she moved no closer to Morgan than that.

"Morgan—"

"She’s our mother, Lucina!" Morgan cried, and though his voice rose in volume and force it cracked on the word mother. “Our mother! How could you be so—”

"Do you think I don’t know that?" Lucina asked. "Why do you think it has taken me this long to confront her? It isn’t as if I wanted to—"

"You could have fooled me," Morgan said, and he flailed one hand in an accusatory gesture toward the sword still held in Lucina’s grip. "You haven’t even put away Falchion."

"But I tried my best as an anime fan to try to do the first live action anime movie with Pacific Rim. And that was one of the reasons why I wanted to achieve an almost superpure color palette of super-saturated colors. I was hoping to make the movie feel as dynamic and as vibrant as anime."

Not An Evangelion Rip Off

del toro knows more about mecha and is a bigger fan than 100% of eva nerds calling him out for ‘ripping off’ that show

im still happy that coyote tango was based off of the guncannon

the most important thing i got about this was del toro getting buddy-buddy with junji ito omg that back slapping story

Holy fuck he’s so good

Junji Ito though

Hey Shychemist. I've been following your blog for awhile and I want to bring up something that seems dated but nonetheless holds to be accurate today. I feel like the girls who consider themselves to be on the science side of tumblr to be horribly mistaken. It's statistically proven that women applicants struggle to get into stem doctorate programs, and rightfully so, they don't belong there. examples- atomic-o-licious, brainsx , adventuresinchemistry, i can't fit anymore but you get it

It doesn’t seem dated, your attitude is dated. This is the 21st century.

Women deserve to be in STEM programs just as much as men. I’d wager they deserve to succeed in the Sciences even more than men because of the sexism and misogyny they experience.

They struggle to get in because they’re the minority, and a lot of people who could admit them are sexist (regardless of gender) because of the society they grew up in. Its not through any intellectual weakness. These women are amazing and just as smart as the men in their fields.

You have no right to say these things to these amazing women, many of whom I consider to be friends.

Wow. That seems like really fucking wrong. And offensive.
And I would love to take some more time out of my day to be pissed about it.
But…
image

It seems that I have a lot of fucking science to do. 
So, uh, screw that.
If anybody needs me, me and my lady bits will be getting some fucking science done.

I’m oddly excited to have been name checked by this shitty anon. Because it means that the very fact that I got into an Ivy League, top 15 science PhD program (where I fucking belong) is a giant fuck you to shitty anon. Also, shitty anons make Lewis sad. Because Lewis is a feminists science hippo.

imageBest way for me to deal with shitty nonnies who think women can’t do science? DO MORE SCIENCE!!!! MWAHAHAHA

Crap, I’m a woman biologist. I’d go get another career but I have a groundbreaking thesis on rapid evolution of reproductive isolation between seed beetle populations to finish. 

I’m not a well-known tumblr scientist…but I am a scientist all the same. And while I could probably obtain a more gender-appropriate occupation… I’m pretty content with the fact I’m an atmospheric chemist Additionally, I am also one of the few women who have managed to be selected to intern at NASA’s airborne research program.

Do I not deserve a place in the STEM fields, anon? 

Hey ladies! Mind if some physicists join in?

Oh, me? What do I do? I try to understand why superbursts happen in neutron stars! This is important because: they shouldn’t happen but they do. And the implications could be astoundingly helpful for things like, oh I don’t know, nuclear fusion.

Oh, just me, at a conference after presenting this:

"don’t belong there"?! excuse you! 
Im not a science tumblr but i am a girl and a geologist so i kinda prove you wrong…?

So yeh anon, you’re wrong and very very very outdated in your opinions 

oh wow this anon thinks that women don’t belong in STEM—

better throw my archaeology B.A. in the trash, burn my thesis and stop teaching biology, chemistry and physics to the 8-12th grades.

OH WAIT

I’ve got image 

SCIENCE TO DO

NO TIME FOR SEXIST MAN CHILD ANONS

oh I guess I should burn the cheque I got for guest lecturing in grad school too—

image

Sorry, no time to answer douchey anon. To busy getting paid handsomely to do research things like this

image

While dressed fabulously like this

image

Because unlike the bullshit movies would tell you, geologists don’t wear white lab coats. Something to do with all that dirt. 

I’d tell my grad school and all the funding bodies that gave me a fellowship and research grants that they were totally mistaken because girls don’t science well except OOPS ALREADY GOT MY MS IN GEOLOGY, TOO LATE. 

Well darn. Guess I better just get back to doing science instead.

Wow so i found this abandoned in my FE folder! I don’t think I’ve ever posted this one in my FE artblog.

This LibraxTharja comic was actually the very first comic I did, even before my HenryxPanne comic. I decided to abandon it when I realized this was getting far too long.

Since I have no plans of finishing this I thought I’d share it here.

Sanxian this is great and so cute!  I’m slowly getting addicted to this game, I must put my hands on Fire Emblem awakening *A*.

AWAKENING IS GREAT, PLAY IT! QAQ I’m on my 17th playthrough and somehow I don’t get tired of it! (though 11 of them were speedruns and I finished them in 5 hours or so)
