Life is good when…
I came home from the best LARP event ever to find an email stating that I get a press pass for Philly Comic Con. So tired though.
I don’t think I’m ever going to get over how fucking sassy Loki is
“AWAY, puny mortals!”
Still shocked that Thor used contractions.
Never shocked that Loki is sassy.

Stahp it, Tony, you’re making him cry!
Is that 26,000+ notes I see? It is. It is indeed 26,000+ notes I see

^^^ See that lu-fu? I actually know her over in RP land and omg she is as amazing as you think.
It’s weird. I feel as though he loves me. But sometimes it feels like my boyfriend doesn’t like me? Like he’s just kind of here out of obligation and commitment but I’m not his friend. And I get in these moods sometimes where all I want to do is draw or LARP or escape feeling just like… me.
I know this is supposed to be a blog about art and LARP and happy fun times but I’m not always like that. You guys probs don’t want to hear about my silly problems because SO MANY people have it a lot worse than me but I feel like I gotta write down this stuff somewhere. I don’t know, man. Sometimes, life is poops.
Hey, this is totally normal in a long-term relationship so long as it doesn’t become a habit…and if it does, talk about it with him.
And it’s probably not normal, but I get in moods, too, like I’ll sit down and write 10,000 words and then I won’t write anything for a few days, which I guess is weird, but…sometimes that’s how the magic happens, whether there are problems in one’s life or not.
I love making projects with other people.
Woah, not those kinds of projects.
For every larp there is a different set of players, and with these players come their own styles, baggage, and mannerisms. The most common qualities have become our sub-culture stereotypes. They can range from good stereotypes to mostly harmless to game-breaking. These three stereotypes are a few of the most harmful to a well-functioning larp.
Check out the post here: http://www.larping.org/three-stereotypes-to-avoid/
While I’ve dealt with people from all 3 stereotypes, why the hell is “LARP Queen” written as only being female and only against other female players? Way to promote the “Beware of girls!” mentality. I have met plenty of males who fit that trope to a T. But instead of talking down other female players they do it to whomever they damn well please. Manipulating people for personal gain, regardless of your looks or gender, is a problem. It occurs just as much with one sex as the other.
I swear. Everything I ever read on LARPing.org just ends up infuriating me. They seem to refuse to look past gender and social constructs and in turn reinforce false stereotypes.
Good points about the term. I wish we could eliminate it or find a new one that includes male offenders as well. I wrote about some suggestions on avoiding or dealing with this type of person, although ultimately the term is on par with ‘attention whore’ or the word ‘cunt.’ I refuse to accept the use of it is anything but offensive because I cannot think of something equally offensive to males - or inclusive of them.
With the disclaimer that I’ve written for larping.org and am writing some blogs for them right now, I find that they are receptive of varying opinions. I’m sure they’d welcome a response piece either submitted to their site or elsewhere.
I have been to games with ‘LARP queens’ and thank my lucky stars every day that the usually even number of males and females tends to discourage that kind of behavior at my favorite games.
