Now, I suppose it's time I really set about readjusting myself to dA. (Even though most of my first friends and watchers and the only people I actually built any kind of relations with here are gone now.)
Since my last post, I've lived through a semester in art school and grown, I hope, quite a bit. Made a few friends, lost one or two, blahblahblah. Soon the house I've lived the last 7 and a half years in is being sold as my sister moves across the country to Oregon and I move 30 minutes away into a college dorm room. It's been a rollercoaster kind of a life as any old friends who are still around will know, but chapters end and books are closed and new ones are picked up.
On to the important things. Assassin's Creed III.
I got the game for Christmas and played a bit every day until beating it last night. And god damn did I cry. And I mean I WEPT shamelessly from sequence 10 until the credits rolled on.
As much as I admired Altair and clung to Ezio, Connor seems to have moved something in me. His father Haytham, as well. I'll avoid spoilers as best I can here, but in my opinion, ubisoft has done better than ever before at making a very real relatable main character. Mistakes are made, emotions wreak havoc, and you end up home by yourself screaming at the TV because you know how Connor feels but you desperately want to save him from a mistake.
Now that the story is done and I've finished rereading the Lord of the Rings, as well, and since there are no more Game of Thrones books released for me to read, I must set myself on the path of finding yet another story of fantasy to immerse myself in.
Farewell, until I reach the end of that one, whatever it may be!
