Sorry for the string of negative text posts, but it’s been a negative kind of week. D:
Oops, ran into my first special kind of bad tank* in the group finder.
(* Shadow, rolled need on strength gear, focused on the elite and let everything else pummel the healer, bitched when the healer couldn’t heal him through standing in a boss’s area of bad.)
I had to leave group because the oblivious dpsers wouldn’t okay the vote kick.
Parents got in a massive fight again, and my dad won’t leave me alone about it. Tried to talk to my mom, she started crying and hung up.
Basically, they fucked up their divorce terms years ago and now $200 of my dad’s retirement money is going to dissolve into thin air without going to either of them, and the first lawyer they went to was absolutely of no help and now my mom is too scared to go to anyone else.
Now I have a headache. Awesome fucking day.
How the heck do you sentinel/marauder pvp?
There are so many things to micromanage, it feels like a flight simulator.
Oh Xkit, why are you so depressing at times? I ran the mutual follow checker and discovered half of the swtor blogs I follow aren’t following back. .__.
OMG someone had Ensign Temple in a beret and it was the cutest thing ever. They logged before I could get a screenshot. ;__;
I really love Quinn ok hes my fave
but he’s also a massive tool and I won’t skip on occasions to mention that in any conversation I can
I like it when people like a character because they are well written jerks.
Quinn is cool because he’s the perfect little yes man. He does what he is told without question and I love poor little Imperials that don’t understand that they are being used.
:3 the only thing I don’t get is people going ‘amg perfect romance’ but ignore that whole dealie-o or just shrug it off.
ITS KIND OF A BIG DEAL
The thing that makes me laugh about Quinn the most is how his first appearance makes him look like this badass, cold Imperial with a mind set on the objective and how his codex entry states that he “is not a bootlicker”. And then I look at how he acts in the storyline and just laugh. Laugh until my tummy hurts.
Don’t even get me started on his romance. Remember how everybody was talking about how the male Jed/Sith exploit their padawans on the basis of teacher-student relationship? Turn that around and apply it to Wrath and Quinn. Also add to that Quinn constantly and consistently saying “NO” to Wrath. And that’s pretty fucking creepy.
Wow, I didn’t know that about his romance.
And his codex says he isn’t a bootlicker? o_o I mean like Quinn or not, but he definitely seemed to fit that bill when I played my SW. At least toward the SW.
he’s actually a lot less of a bootlicker then people give him credit for. after all, do people forget how he ended up working for Baras in a first place?
sure, he’s differential and polite and all “yes, my lord”, but he also has very specific morality and he doesn’t always manage to hold back his opinions, he just tries to do in in a way that wouldn’t offend. he’s pretty politically savvy, has been dealing with Sith for a while and he’s perfectly aware of what happens if you cross a wrong sith. he has morals, but he also likes being alive and he won’t jeopardize his personal well being unless there are bigger stakes on a line, and people other then him would suffer if he does nothing.
which is why I’m not a fan of his romance, because he keeps trying to say no, but in a way that won’t anger SW, warrior just doesn’t really take that no for an answer. so I’m forever left wondering - did he actually want the relationship, or did he feel so pressured into it that he didn’t feel like he could keep saying no anymore?
and then of course, there’s that incident, which I do think is in character for him, but its still wasn’t handled all that well by the game, IMO.
Quinn is an interesting character that I appreciate the writing for, and dislike on a personal level.
Oh this again…
Respectfully, I think the assumption that Quinn doesn’t like the flirting is flat out wrong. He gives affection gains for flirting, even if he responds by trying to dodge them. When he doesn’t like something, you lose affection with him. At one point in the romance, you can even accept his request to be transferred away, but he chooses to stay. If that doesn’t show, consent, I’m not sure what does. Do you people want him to run around screaming, “Fuck me now, my lord!” There would probably be doubters then, too.
I also don’t think people realize current social justice topics and morals don’t really apply to the Sith Empire. Slaves, anyone?
