I'm a little bit of a James and a little bit of an Elizabeth, which makes me a Holden. (Also sometimes known as TJ.) 22. Galaxy Defender. Hopeful. Barricade boy. Song-and-dance man. Professional adventurer. From Dixie originally. I'm in love (with a lot) and have a lot of passions. =]

Happily with this miss.

Don’t lie. You’ve all said it.

DO YOU LIKE RICHLY DETAILED & RELAXING GAMES LIKE ANIMAL CROSSING & HARVEST MOON?

DO YOU WANT RACIALLY DIVERSE AVATARS THAT ARE CAPABLE OF DATING CHARACTERS OF ANY GENDER?

DO YOU WANT TO HELP A SUPER CUTE GAME AND ALSO SUPPORT RACIAL & SEXUAL DIVERSITY IN MAINSTREAM GAMING?

THEN SIT YOUR BEAUTIFUL SELVES DOWN AND LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE BEST GAME YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF

Pumpkin Online is a farming & dating MMORPG where your character gets to customize their own farm, house and avatar to their choosing. And there’s some serious choice here- did I mention your avatar can be non-binary as well?

Add that to the sheer amount of detailed gameplay- a rich interactive world, fully-fleshed backstories for NPCs, great background music, mini-games and quests, customizable farms & houses, and the ability to not just date whatever gender you like, but marry them as well. Take a moment to let that sink in, we’ll wait.

Pumpkin Online is lead by a fantastic design crew, and is currently on Kickstarter. The game is still working towards open Beta, which will be available for only $15. But this amazing game won’t be possible unless they meet their funding- they only need $1,864 dollars to meet their $30,00 goal. They’re already so close- but time is running out. They have barely 3 days left to raise just under two thousand dollars, which is why I think it’s time people hear about this awesome project. 

Please consider donating whatever you can! For just $5, you’ll receive a hand-written thank you letter and your name in the games credits, and you’ll have helped a revolutionary new game- not to mention how many cool physical and in-game prizes there are for those willing to donate a little more. If you like cute graphics, fun games, racial, gender and sexual diversity, please donate or help spread the word!

OMG FUND IT FUND IT NOW

Even though they’ve officially reached their funding goal, there’s still so much worth donating for! Any additional donations will go towards the creation of Spoonie Island, an in-game location where people with chronic illnesses can meet up, make friends and spread awareness of their conditions. This is such a wonderful game, and I’d love to see how much more we can help it grow!

I WAS HOPING SOMEONE WOULD

  • Why I like them

goddd WHERE DO I BEGIN??????? WHERE DO I BEGIN 2 TELL THE STORY OF HOW GREAT A LOVE CAN B……

ok ok… like….to avoid writing an entire essay here, i’ll just sum up. my favourite thing about him as a character is that he’s just intrinsically good. just a pleasant, good-mannered, well-intentioned, genuinely good person. some ppl think he’s too perfect & it makes him boring, but for me he is literally the best character i’ve ever encountered in a literary work <3 I can truly and honestly say he is my all-time favorite character.

I love that he’s a bit dumb sometimes, I love that he’s all uptight and proper (although he’s loosened up a bit in the later books - the essence still remains though), I LOOOOOVE how selfless and self-sacrificial he is, I love that he’s a bit of a prude, I love that he was in all probability still a virgin at 31 I’VE SPENT WAY 2 MUCH TIME THINKING ABOUT THIS, i love that he cares about his clothes so much….. man there are so many things i love about him the list would be endless. I want to go into a deep analysis why I think he’s amazing but I’m not smart enough to put my feelings into words </3

  • Why I don’t

there’s literally nothing i don’t like about him r.i.p.

  • Favorite episode (scene if movie)

o god there are so many, but one of my favorites is when they’re all stuck on the island and Laurence just beats one of the sailors the fuck up lmao. i was like YAAAAASSSSSSSSSS LAURENCE U GO GIRL when reading that part.

another big favorite is when after saving Tharkay in BoT they’re in his tent and Tharkay is like “bruh have u noticed the top of ur head is about to come off” and Laurence is like “shhh bae that ain’t no thang” and i’m like

image

and then there’s the scene in the first book when Laurence just walks up to Rankin, tips him out of his chair and just d r a g s him out to Levitas. basically any time Laurence is being all angry and/or authoritative i’m like Y A S

i won’t even mention pg 290 of blood of tyrants i think we all know my feelings on that

  • Favorite season/movie

i’ll just do fav book for this one. For Laurence moments, definitely Victory of Eagles. All that sad n broken Laurence, hurts so good <3

  • Favorite line

oh gosh i’m…. i’m sure i have tons but i caN’T THINK OF ANY…. anything where he’s being dumb n cute basically

  • Favorite outfit

well not like he has many outfits, he’s just always in his aviator coat isn’t he. i LOVE all regency fashion tho, so he’s basically always in clothes i’m hella into haha

  • OTP

laurence/tharkay 4ever best ship of all ships no contest

though one-sided rankin/laurence is also my THANG huehheueuueh

  • Brotp

w granby, n w roland (i do like it well enough as a romantic pairing, but i think that ship has sailed & i’m happy for them to just bro it up. tbh there never seemed to be much of a romantic connection there - read more like friends w benefits 2 me). i do also enjoy laurence & tharkay as a friendship as well.

  • Head Canon

ummm i guess u can count the virgin till 31 thing as a headcanon BUT I’M PRETTY SURE IT’S LEGIT based on evidence in the books r.i.p. god i’m so stupid why do i care about this

also a stupid headcanon: laurence can’t cook for shit. he can’t even fry an egg. cause even though he’s used to being on short rations cause he’s a navy man, he’s never had to cook for himself, so. can he even make his own tea??? probably not

  • Unpopular opinion

i dislike the laurence/granby ship. not cause i don’t see it - it’s totally a legit ship, yeah, but i’m too hardcore of a granby/little n laurence/tharkay shipper for there to be any room for it in my heart </3

  • A wish

for the endgame to be laurence, tharkay & temeraire going off on adventures 4 ever together as a happy family

  • An oh-god-please-dont-ever-happen

laurence dying in the final book, but idt novik would do that…..

i also don’t want laurence/roland to be endgame cause that would be boring as hell, but i wouldn’t really be outraged if it happened. just meh i guess.

  • My nickname for them

BABY CAPTAIN owing to the fact that even though it was a legit age to be captain back then, to me 31 feels like hella young to have captained a ship for several years already lmao

I laughed out loud several times reading this beautiously goddamn perfect description of him.
