Five more days till the challenge starts. Are you ready?YaaaasOOOH
Oh my god
Also I love the logic of that anon, like, I have 5 wardens and 5 Hawkes and they apparently think that I never noticed that blood magic is connected to demons or that Tevinter enslaves people.
Some people get anon hate, I get people in my inbox inarticulately yelling about evil mages.
Like, I’m not pro-blood magic or anything, but:
Ferelden’s Blood Band is an Old Gods cult with a blood mage leading them. The head mage uses his magic for the good of the group, protecting them, healing their crops, and their bodies. In exchange the members of the Blood Band known as “bleeders” provide him with their blood. Though it remains an undeniably violent and self-destructive discipline, many see blood magic as the only form of magic that is truly free since it’s tied to the physical, not favors to spirits or demons.
This is apparently from one of the comics not written by Gaider but like, if it has the potential to be used for good then the Chantry’s banning of it really made it so it never would be.
Okay, to begin with, where in the world did you come from? What exactly did I say to bring on this poorly spelled little rant? Last thing I posted (prior to my comment about literary deconstruction and I really don’t think you meant that) was a picture of a fox.
What did that fox ever do to you?
But okay, let’s talk about this.
Blood magic. Let’s begin with that.
The reason you have to communicate with a demon to learn blood magic is because the Chantry outlawed the teaching of it. In case you have trouble with citations that’s in the first paragraph with of the second section. The Chantry themselves caused the problem with mages communicating with demons to learn blood magic, and then they put all of the mages in a cage and menaced them for the rest of their lives. Not really sure they thought that one through but hey, clearly not forward thinkers these Chantry folk.
As for Tevinter, they rule over their people with the backing of THEIR state-based religion, the Imperial Chantry, and wow guess what, that’s a piece of shit too!
It’s almost as if having your country run by a major paramilitary religious organization that privileges one set of people over another is a bad thing.
Also, “realizing the Chantry is a piece of shit” and “realizing Tevinter is a piece of shit” are not mutual states of mind, my dear grey friend. The IDEAL would be akin to a type of Thedean Hogwarts, where mages are trained and then, you know, go live with their families for the rest of their lives, and help society like, idk, healing people—like you know, apostates actually do.
I never know what to do when I grasp a concept really, really well, and it’s obvious that the rest of the class doesn’t. I’m having literally no problem with the idea of deconstruction when nobody else in the class seems able to even skate along the edges of it.
We’re going to go over it again in our midterm discussions, but I just…don’t see why anyone is having a problem with it.
I got let off early today because my tasks were done, so now I can spend more time studying for tomorrow, which is really important because there’s midterm discussion happening tomorrow in my literary criticism class.
The downside is that I want to nap. A lot.
Also I ran into a problem in making a Sosigenes blog and that problem is “I have no idea what to call it” so that’s the state of things right now.
Dragon Age’s nugs celebrating the 1st of Halloween :D
I either need to work less hours or I need to quit. There’s no way I can do work and university, not even with a reduced schedule. I wish there was someone I could talk to about this.
Okay so I talked to the office manager about this (and cried) and she said we could work something out where maybe I worked Monday, then Wednesday for a half day, then Friday. Or no Friday depending on if they office isn’t open. I feel so much better. Trying to get the work done between Tuesday and Thursday was killing me. She even said I could come in on Fridays were not here to finish projects if need be, and that would be okay to. It will tighten my budget but it’s a trade off either way.
