This is my place to hang my DA II Fandom hat, either by reblogging my love for Fenris & Anders or passing on fics or amazing art.

So, IM3 is starting to premiere in places. Which is cool. However, some of us won’t be able to see the movie for a while longer, and some of us don’t want spoilers.
Thus I ask that you tag your IM3 posts. That way tumblr savior will hide the post and I will get to enjoy the movie with as few spoilers as possible.
If you post untagged IM3 posts, you will be unfollowed immediately. One strike policy over here. I’ll make note of your username so that I can follow you back after I’ve seen the movie. But seriously. Just throw IM3 in the tags and everyone will be happy.

Hmmm… say, if you take someone who has never played any previous games in the series but saw the movies, how does it stand as just a zombie game and not a series installment?
I wouldn’t compare the two in terms of deciding to play Resident Evil. IMHO the first two movies are the only ones that follow the games path, after that it’s diverged into a gore fest, but that’s my take on it. There’s actually a new RE film in theatres, Resident Evil: Retribution but it seems to have little attachment to the game lore.
There is back story provided as you go along. In terms of just straight up zombie killing fun? Good times.I’m sure there are people who are picking it up just for killing shit. There’s also Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2 for KILL ALL THE ZOMBIE fun times.
I actually don’t know how much time has supposed to have elapsed between RE5 and RE6, but apparently you find out what has been going on with some of the characters since previous games.
You can catch up on the story on the games site. :)
So, this is the the thing that’s sort of eaten my life over the last week. First half of the story is here (@4600 words), the other half will be up by this weekend. I wanted to make sure that I could actually finish writing it before posting it on my AO3/de-anon-ing.
Nothing particularly triggery content-wise in this, besides being depressing in general, due to the fact that it’s about a relationship that’s falling apart. Warnings ahead of time for some very explicit sexual content, because that’s mostly out of the ordinary for me, and people might not be expecting it.
Summary: Hawke and Anders love each other, but sometimes love just isn’t enough. The relationship dissolves despite their best efforts, and it’s mutual.
Prompt: Everything good comes to an end. Hawke doesn’t laugh and Anders doesn’t smile anymore. Hawke is cold as ice after the death of his/her mother, and Anders is more obsessed than ever with his manifesto and freeing the mages. Everyone sees it, including Hawke and Anders.
I TOLD YOU ALREADY BUT DAMN, THIS FIC… ALL THE FEELS, YOU HIT ME SQUARE IN THE FEELS, ERM HEART. This is bitter, it breaks my heart to see them slipping away from each other like this. Their physical connection seems tenuous at best, emotional connection just fucking gone.
That light is out, guttered, choked out and can’t be raised from embers. I will sit here gazing at my screen, willing you to post the other half while I catch up on everything I’ve missed.
So tell me… I just saw this on the ME3 community on LJ:
We are aware that there are concerns about a recent post from this account regarding the ending of the game. In this post it was stated that at this time we do not have plans to change the ending.
We would like to clarify that we are actively and seriously taking all player feedback into consideration and have ruled nothing out. At this time we are still collecting and considering your feedback and have not made a decision regarding requests to change the ending.
Your feedback and opinions are of the utmost importance to us. We apologize for any confusion this has caused. Our top priority regarding this discussion is to keep communication with you, our loyal fans, open and productive.
Are there people actually asking a game company to re-do a game’s ending? I mean a game that was a long ass time in the making, etc etc etc.. and people are actually asking EA/Bioware to CHANGE THE ENDING?
I’m missing something here, someone needs to explain in small words. Send me a pm or submit or ask if you don’t want to have spoilers in the discussion for others.
FWIW, I am getting ME3 soon, I just didn’t have the money or time to get it at launch. But since people still can’t tag/title their posts I’ve given up hope on not getting spoiled for the game.
