So after a long and grueling battle with his writing style, which can get to be really droll…

…I have finally finished reading the five main books of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series (A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons).

Suffice it to say that the guy is an asshole for leaving SO MANY FRICKIN’ IMPORTANT PLOT LINES in the last book hanging from various cliffs. Doesn’t make him any less of an absolutely amazing writer, but still, asshole.

In other news, I think I kinda broke Risk of Rain — then again, Glass Mode is pretty much how the game should be played, haha.

WTF is SOPA? WTF is PROTECT IP? I’ll tell you what they are: A restriction of liberties for EVERYONE IN THE DAMN WORLD, due to the almost monopolistic control of the internet held by the US.

I highly suggest you watch and pay close attention to BOTH videos. You’ll learn a thing or two.

I am officially miffed.

According to Pottermore I belong in

HUFFLEPUFF

of all places, because…

I’d like to be known as… The Good
In a magical garden I’d first check… The statue of an old wizard with a tinkling eye
I’d prefer to study… Werewolves
If I heard a suspicious magical cry… I’d proceed with caution, wand concealed and eye out
In the night, I prefer the… Moon
On a coin, I prefer… Heads

Needless to say, I feel a little cheated.

Edit: For the record, I’m slightly more pissed off because everyone I’ve met in the fandom has always said I have a rather obvious Ravenclaw face, which I happen to be heavily inclined to agree with, even though my favorite character from the series is a Gryffindor (Hermione). Just felt like venting a bit.

So according to Pottermore…

My perfect wand would be…

SYCAMORE WITH DRAGON CORE, TWELVE AND THREE QUARTER INCHES, SURPRISINGLY SWISHY

Because…

I am… Shorter than average for my age
I have… Dark Brown/Black eyes
My strongest point is, in my opinion, my… Imagination
I was born on an… Even numbered day
I am most afraid of… Heights
If I get to a crossroads going to a Castle, a Forest and the Sea, I’d go for… The Sea
And in a chest of Magical Objects, I’d pick… The Silver Dagger

Hm… That’s interesting. o.o

Eh, three out of four. Not too bad I guess.

Took a bullet in the balls trying to play RE5 on this poor little old machine, but with three good news balancing against the utter rape my poor old laptop suffered, I guess I’ll survive.

A couple of important things just happened these past few days.

And as much as I’d like to name them all in an orderly fashion just in here, you’re gonna have to hit the jump to read about everything. By the way, Aeria decided they really don’t want me back, even in spite of all the stuff I’ve gathered as evidence in my defense and all the stuff I can DO FOR THEM. Oh well, their loss. It’s just a pity that all my pimped out shit won’t get any more use, by me or anyone else.

Wooohoooo, Pottermore account GET!!

As is of no surprise to anyone who’s known me for any length of time, I’m a pretty hardcore fan of the Harry Potter universe.
 
 
 
 
And I’ve just scored an early access account to the new official Potterverse site, Pottermore.
 
 
 
 
I’m pretty damn happy.
