Just read a thing that said that new Maleficent movie was a “New and female-empowering take of the Disney classic fairy tale”
Which was odd to me. I mean… the main characters of the classic Disney movie are Flora, Fauna, Merryweather, and Maleficent yeah? The protagonists are basically 3 not conventionally beautiful/sexy old women with god powers. Phillip and Aurora are lovely characters but their romance is a subplot, as romance should be.

When you think about it Phillip didn’t really do shit but ride a horse and be a pretty neat guy. He didn’t kill Maleficent, the fairies used their god powers on the sword they made just a little while ago with said god powers. He and Aurora did that “love at first sight” bit but were clearly planning to meet up again and get to know one another more before circumstance got in their way.

I haven’t seen Maleficent yet, mind you, but it’s not like the old movie was oozing in “womenz be weak yo”. Phillip’s father was the only male character who was really that much of a dick with power and he came around to the idea of Phillip marrying who he wanted before he even found out that the girl he wanted just so happened to be the princess.

I haven’t seen Maleficent yet and I don’t know if I will anytime soon (because I’m poor as shit so I often wait for a DVD release of movies I’m not chomping at the bit to see.) but let’s not discredit the original movie. The original fairy tale? That’s another story entirely…. >.>;

Photos of me??

I was the girl with the frilly white cravat, black jacket, white skirt (knee length in front, ankle length in back), and big white lace parasol and my friends are asking for pictures of me but unfortunately my phone was dead the whole con. :c

So if anyone has any I’d like to see them so I can show my buddies what I looked like >u<;

Okay so I’ve been a long time fan of the Fire Emblem series, it’s one of my all-time favorites. So when FE13 (Awakening) was announced I was super excited.
Until I saw the…

Why does armor has to be realistic when they are fighting undead bags of meat and giant dragons? Seriously, the game features time traveling, magic, dragon gods and people complain about unrealistic armor…

It wouldn’t bother me as much if the series hadn’t been pretty good about it until this point. It just makes me feel like suddenly the artist they hired didn’t care much about thought and really just wanted flashy outfits that are sexy and don’t make any sense.

Also the supernatural elements are things that don’t really exist so there’s no basis in reality to go “wait a minute that’s completely wrong.” People know how fighting works and how clothes on a person work, that’s why it’s something that they can find issue with. I know that not wearing protection over your boobs while shooting archery is a horrible idea and results in horrific bruising, that’s something I can experience in real life. So since it’s something I can connect with, I can actually go “wait no why ow, she must be in terrible pain” if that makes sense… ^^;

While I agree that quite a bit of the characters have very impractical armor, the fact that a majority of the characters are pale has been in past games too. Otherwise, I totally agree with you on Awakening’s armor.

Oh that was mostly just about how it’s colored. The person who did the art this time around really made them look rather pasty, sorry if that was unclear. ^^;

ONE OF THESE THINGS IS NOT LIKE THE OTHERS.

Until I saw the official art. Not only is it a huge shift from previous styles (much darker colors, many characters look like they’ve never seen the sun, very tiny eyes, etc.) but the outfits went from “kind of impractical but it’s clear there was at least thought put into this” to “what the fuck are they fighting in and why.” Especially where little Noire here was concerned. It’s clear whoever designed her either had never shot archery or just didn’t care. In previous games, the female archers had guards over their boobs or at least had them covered.

PROTIP- If you’re a girl shooting archery, please be sure that your breasts are covered. The arm holding the bow too. Why??  Because your bowstring can hit you there and it stings and bruises like a motherfucker. (Amazons used to just amputate one breast so that this didn’t happen. they kept one so they could breastfeed their daughters.)
