Sometimes body modification is just a way of telling yourself “this is still my house, I paint the walls and and I hang the art because I’m the one who owns it”

I identify so strongly with this, can’t think of a better reason to decorate yourself than out of love for the vessel.

Reblog if you have read fan fiction better than some published books

Help me prove a point

I have never reblogged anything faster.

Unfortunate for the books, but speaks loads about the quality of some fan fics

zevran is a whole other kind of nobility, smooth and lithe and fierce in his passions unlike any of the aloof lords she’s known; when he presses into her she cries out, and he whispers into her ear, mi amore, mi amore, let me unmake you.

Speaking of forums... What forums / blogs / etc (other than your own if course) would you most recommend to individuals interested in pursuing game development or programming, and who want to hear more about what it's like to work in the industry, or otherwise get answers to game development and programming related questions?
A reply from askagamedev

There are a couple of places I will visit on occasion, but it will vary based on your relative amount of knowledge and understanding of the process. Here’s some stuff I would suggest.

General Game Development:

  • Extra Credits on Youtube - A great bird’s-eye view series of videos (updated weekly) of how things work in various aspects of the industry.
  • Gamedev.net - A page and forum for video game developers of all walks of experience.
  • Gamasutra.com - Probably the best resource for more experienced developers. Gamasutra has a lot of articles and blog posts written by developers from indie to AAA and everything in between. Many articles assume an inherent level of knowledge, however, which may make it less easy to digest than the others. Also has job listings.
  • GDC Vault - A collection of free (and subscription) videos from past Game Developer Conference talks.

Specific Stuff:

  • Programming: Stack Exchange - A great general programming resource where you can ask questions and bored programmers will answer them.
  • Game Writing: David Gaider’s game development tag - David is the lead writer for the Dragon Age franchise. He has several great writing-specific posts about game development.
  • MMO Development: Eldergame.com - Eric Heimburg is an old hand at MMO development, having worn multiple hats on multiple AAA MMOGs, and is currently working on his own indie MMOG called Project Gorgon.
  • MMO Development: RaphKoster.com - Raph Koster is one of the oldest hands in the MMOG game, and he is the one who first identified a lot of the theory we use to construct games today.
  • Animation and Art: Art-eater.com - I first discovered this blog through some posts about the twelve principles of animation, and I was hooked. It’s a fantastic resource with some amazing analysis on art, with the heavy emphasis on animation.
  • 3D Modeling: Polycount’s forums - There’s no better forum for budding 3D artists to learn, show off their work, or ask for advice. Those showing off their work or offering advice are often industry veterans. There’s no better forum for hopeful artists to get real constructive critiques and advice on their work.

Hope it helps. Enjoy the reading.
