Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

bioware-confessions:

(x)

Its interesting to me how the fandom seems to take Cullen having PTSD as fact. Especially considering if thats true, then he has no place leading armies in a position of power.

I don’t normally reblog these types of confessions, but I noticed something very strange with this one:  I’d seen it before, or so I thought.  This prompted me to see if maybe it was double posted, but it wasn’t, and that’s when I noticed a pattern.

There’s this confession above, then this one, and this one, all on the same blog and posted within the past month.  So my question is this: Is someone spamming the blog’s inbox, or is Cullen’s abilities in leading the military arm of an organization really so obscure and difficult to surmise?

Granted, these confessions suggest differing things, but the overall theme of them is his experience and qualifications.  However, given the amount of time that’s not only passed between games, but also during the games when we’re not with him 24/7/365 or however many days a Thedosian year possesses, why is it so hard to believe that he’s acquired the necessary skills and is completely qualified to be a General of the Inquisition’s army?

I can’t help but ask this question considering he’s spent over half his life in the ranks of a military organization that would certainly train its members.  Additionally, if you’re looking for actual experience on a battlefield, we don’t know exactly what his part in the Mage/Templar War has been so far, or if he’s fought there/done whatever else (aside from the fight against Meredith, which I guess doesn’t qualify as being a battlefield or something).

We also don’t need evidence aside from Bioware’s word that Josephine is skilled at diplomacy (and I’m most certainly not picking on her either, just using this example because I’m not seeing anyone asking what her qualifications are).

So yeah, as stated above, I don’t normally reblog these confessions, and I’m not naysaying the OPs’ opinions here in my points.  Just couldn’t help but make note of the hubbub everyone’s making over this particular topic and wondering why it’s apparently such an issue.  =|

It’s an issue because people don’t understand what Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is.

I’ve lived with it now for thirteen years. I was diagnosed by a psychologist and that diagnosis has been upheld by the therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and specialists that I’ve had to see in the years since. And living with PTSD is nothing at all like what they show in the media.

People seem to get most of their facts from the media or “public knowledge.” But when PTSD shows up in the news, it’s inevitably because someone killed someone else. So there’s this idea that people with PTSD are dramatically unstable, violent, and about ready to kill someone at the drop of a hat.

I’ve been confronted with this idea over and over again, to the point where I just don’t tell people about my diagnosis anymore.

"Oh, god, you have PTSD. You don’t have guns, right?"

"Holy shit, are you allowed to be walking around free like this?"

"Do you think you’ll be able to handle the stresses of a desk job?"

"Give up. You can’t handle the stress of working or having a house. You should get on disability instead."

"Does that mean that you’re going to kill me?"

There are times when I just want to scream shut up, but I’m pretty sure that would make it worse.

Not everyone reacts to PTSD the same way, just like nobody reacts to depression, ADHD, OCD, grief, loss, or transition the same way. As Sten once said, “People are not simple.”

Here’s the thing about PTSD: it turns you into a control freak. Many, many, many people with PTSD need to control their environment somehow. Most victims attribute their PTSD to “not being in control” of the traumatic event.

If only I had just done something.

If only I had moved out of the way.

If only I had grabbed the gun.

If only I had pushed him off me.

So there’s this overwhelming fear that if “[I] lose control of the situation again,” someone will be there to take advantage of that so-called vulnerability. Victims blame themselves as much as society blames them. They (we) want to be stronger, smarter, faster, with quicker reflexes and the ability to stay ten steps ahead of everyone else. We don’t want to follow; we want to lead and make sure the traumatic event never ever repeats itself again.

What Cullen is doing is not out of character for someone with PTSD. He was hurt by both the templars and the mages. Now he’s on top. The way the thinking goes for someone with PTSD is like this: he was hurt by both the templars and the mages, and both times he didn’t have control over the situation, so if he has control (as a General), he can make damn sure that neither inflict that sort of pain on anyone else (or him) ever again. He wouldn’t trust someone else to make those decisions again. He trusted Greagoir and Meredith and Hawke and things still went to shit. He was still hurt.

Now he’s in charge, and he’s going to make sure that things get done right this time.

Does Cullen have PTSD? It’s never been stated. Anywhere. Given that Dragon Age is a medieval fantasy with no real psychology, it probably never will be. I have my own opinion that he does have PTSD, because of his actions and statements, but this isn’t supported by the Word of God. The writers haven’t said a word.

Would Cullen’s PTSD (if he were diagnosed properly) prevent him from being a General in the Inquisitor’s army? No. If anything, it would push him straight into it.
