Boy that must have been confusing

i managed to join at the perfect point that happened to have just enough exposition for me to think it was nothing more than a particularly bold cold open.

She was talking about the robbery gone wrong and managed to quickly establish that she was a Forger, Forgery was magic, she was imprisoned, and she was trying to craft something for her captors. A chapter ahead or behind and I'd have known something was definitely up

Edgedancer: BEATED. Pretty nifty ending! Should've seen at least one level of plot twists coming, but didn't. I think I like Lift's vows the best so far. And she's growing up! And Nael is turning face maybe!

Oathbringer: Gavilar....WANTED this, on some level? That's a thing. Also, Dalinar flashbacks woo

Trails SC: Two more years! Two more years! We already have weird shenanigans happening, and a treasure hunt that requires camera changing. And plenty of quality dialogue. We got attacked by some jaegers and HOLY CRAP FAST TRAVEL IS A THING

geeeeeze

Trails: Got to the charging station in the training fortress. Event Items and Night Goggles both seem like interesting (but potentially annoying) gimmicks! I regret trying to be all cheeky and getting myself stuck in the maze instead of just going to the room where you get the goggles, lol. Sometimes that kinda thing pays off, and sometimes you get lost in a dark room, two feet away from a source of nightvision. Also, the heck are they feeding these beetles? Geeze. Also also, I don't know if it's just taken me over a game to notice, but they did a good job with lighting and shadows in one of the rooms here.

Ys: I'm having trouble already! I THINK I have explored all of B3, although it's hard to tell with all the teleporters and my level being just high enough to survive for limited runs. I found what appears to be a boss room, as well as a hidden door for which I need that weird mask, but like every single dang chest in this dungeon, the door is locked. I'm guessing I'm not ready for a boss fight anyway, since the strongest minions are still a handful for me, but I am not really sure what else I am missing. Not even getting great exp off these guys if I was to grind!

Oathbringer: I missed Sil. She adds a refreshing lightness to balance out Kal being Kal. Hearthstone is pretty fun so far! The dynamics between everybody with Kal back are interesting.

Being the Elite 18-20: Nick (I think I have em straight now!) has a cute kid :D Also man they spend so much time traveling.

Oathbringer: Saeiouyl learned about the birds and the bees, so that's....a thing. I am intrigued by this new murder mystery! My gut says that this is actually who Adolin stabbed, somehow. Body double plus Sadeus is a Lightweaver, is the best guess I have as to how. Next guess is Renaren or Navonni, trying to cover for Adolin.

Pokemon: Got the Red Gyarados! ...It's not quite as mindblowing as it was in the 90s, lol. Now it's time to storm a base with Lance I guess! I remember wishing you could directly fight alongside him- did they do that in HG/SS?

Oathbringer: Dalinar hates politics almost as much as I do! High King Dalinar is pretty hype, regardless. Nice scene with Adolin and Shallan that starts by playing to my, uh, interests, and culminates with Best Chaperone Pattern. I like Adolin and Shallan but I also like Kal and Shallan. Hm. My brain says we are ending with Kal, my gut says we're getting the (reverse) harem route, and I don't actually know what I want. Probably Adolin, because folks backing out of relationships to be with somebody else is a button with me, especially when there's nothing wrong with the original dude. Also Shallan is just one Persona (and a bit of fanservice) short of becoming an Ar Tonelico character!

Wifebolo and I finished Victorian Romance Emma in anime form, both of us having read the manga a while back. Was a dang good time. All hail Kaoru Mori.

Oathbringer: Teravangion is joining Team Dalinar! I'm sure that'll go well. ....Actually, it might? Like the Herald guy, I think he has failed his initial objective and might now be on our side? Should be interesting however it plays out. Also really weird that the Voidbringers aren't acting very Voidbringy. Maybe we can save them and team up to.....??? Veil+alcohol is pretty entertaining!

LP MGS4 3-2+4-1: The FROGS are kinda cool, but barreling over them was lulz. I also like the dude with the ! hair. Johnny pooping has gotten pretty old pretty fast. The System is kinda cool. Looking forward to whatever shenanigans Liquid will inflict on or with it.

Oathbringer: Gon' be real awkward when Murraze fills Shallan in on Hellaram. And while we're on the subject of butchered names, I am interested in Ialae but not looking forward to trying to type about her if she starts being a big player. And I suspect she will. ....Well, I have been suspecting a copycat killer for a bit now, but it didn't occur to me that they might be inhuman. I'm guessing the bloopy thing is some sorta violence spren, or something.

ARIA 10- That Warm Holiday...: The one time ARIA comes up in the rotation on my lunch break at work is the hot spring episode, super. They did a good job making it FEEL cold outside. I would appreciate it more if we weren't three months into winter IRL. Also amused that they had a few lines about wearing gloves or not, after all the times Safe Hands have come up recently in Stormlight. The snowbugs are out, and one of them is following Akari around. SHE'S A SURGEBINDER, PROBABLY. The Gondola Paddlers bind Tides and Relaxation. They will row those who cannot row themselves. ....I need to do more things that are not driving to and from work. Anyway, we gave the little pet snowbug a hairbow, and it's the best. As I expect from ARIA at this point, this was a much less fanservicey episode than it could've been, and I like it that way. There are cute-girls-doing-cute-things shows where I wouldn't mind some skin, but that just ain't the vibe here. Unless maybe you're into feet, or kouhai fangirling over senpai. It took me most of the episode to realize that this was one of the stories I read in the manga, lol. I knew the snowbug seemed familiar! A solid ep- even less substance than usual, but it augmented the calming nature of the show with a vaguely mystical vibe.

Ys: 30 minutes and a screwed up half-a-map later, I am no closer to figuring out what I'm doing, but at least I am strong enough that I can run around in circles on B3 without *constantly* needing to retreat to heal. FAQ....ENGAGED. Looks like I've already missed a good bit of important stuff, lol.

Trails: Retry Offset is the greatest invention in gaming. Change my mind, and while you're doing that, I'm gonna take that Eins Zwei Drei, shine it up real nice, turn it sideways, and...oh hey Kurt didn't expect you to be there for some reason. Pieces are in place for an interesting plot, even if I am not a big fan of the new villains or grimdark!Joshua. Capuas are back, too!

I knew from commentary that she would be back but wasn't particularly expecting her to just show up in a vision because ???
