POSSIBLY THE BEST CROSSOVER I’VE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE
BECAUSE ELIZABETH WOULD BE SO NOT INTO IT AND RELUCTANT TO TRY AND DRIFT WITH DARCY BECAUSE HE’S SUCH AN ASS HE’S SO HAUGHTY HE’S SUCH A FUCKING SNOB AND SHE HEARD HIM SAY THAT SHE’D BE AN INTOLERABLE DRIFT PARTNER SO FUCK HIM
BUT THEY SPARRED (DANCED OHMYGOD) AND THEY MOVED TOGETHER SO FLUIDLY AND SHE DID FEEL IT BUT SHE DOESN’T LIKE HIM!!! SHE CAN’T SHARE HER HEAD WITH A DUDE THAT MAKES HER SO FURIOUS
BUT HE TRAILS AFTER HER LIKE A FUCKIN PUPPY AND IS SUDDENLY ALL NICE AND TRIES TO DEFEND HIMSELF LIKE “I FIND IT HARD TO ATTEMPT LOOKING FOR DRIFT COMPATIBILITY IN OTHERS” AND ELIZABETH’S LIKE “WELL YOU SHOULD FUCKIN PRACTICE”
GIVE IT TO ME
#it is a truth universally acknowledge that a single man in possession of a good jaeger must be in want of a co-pilot #you were the last man in the world who i could ever be prevailed upon to drift with #and when she sees him in his element at pemberley she realizes how drift compatible they are #HE WAS EXACTLY THE MAN WHO IN DISPOSITION AND TALENTS WOULD MOST SUIT HER #as a co-pilot #His understanding and temper though unlike her own would have answered all her wishes #in terms of drift compatibility #It was a union that must have been to the advantage of both #while in the drift #by her ease and liveliness his mind might have been softened his manners improved #and from his judgement information and knowledge of the world she must have received benefit of greater importance #but then lady catherine is all YOU ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO DRIFT WITH A DARCY #ARE THE SHADES OF OUR JAEGER TO BE THUS POLLUTED #and elizabeth’s all HE IS A RANGER I AM A RANGER’S DAUGHTER THUS FAR WE ARE EQUAL #and darcy’s all if your feelings about drifting with me are what they were last april tell me so at once #my thoughts and wishes have not changed #and lizzy’s all MY FEELINGS? #and then they become co-pilots #and makeout on a raft #ahahaha ahahahaha #you follow this blog #i’ll show myself out (via waltzingdead)
Would you consider putting together a collection of essays / your past video-game journalism, kind of like Nick Hornby's "31 Songs" or "Stuff I've Been Reading" columns? (Alternatively, some kinda third-person (or still autobiographical) narrative on video games and life in comics-form would probably be cool to read as well!)
It’s the sort of thing I’ve considered, because I’m an awful egotist.
(I’m the sort of person who does buy books of collected essays, and when doing my self-education thing as a critic did read a lot of them. To have one of my own would obviously be satisfying on a lot of levels.)
I kinda consider putting together an Ebook of all the essays on games that I’ve started since leaving games journalism. Obviously that would involve finishing them. I’ve got what would amount to 20-25k of stuff lying around.
And there’s one idea for a book on games which has nagged on me. Entirely self-indulgent, but I think it’d be fun. It’ll be basically THIS IS UNCOOL but with games - as in, a sort of autobiographical structure of pieces on individual games which also moves through my life, and why each game mattered both to me and the world, etc. Basically, a little like my GAMING MADE ME but with more critical games-related stuff as well as the human interest, but expanded to a book.
Yes please :D
