Guide to post signatures (:boost_no:​) 

We've noticed that, when we sign posts as both of us, we tend to sign them differently depending on how exactly we're co-fronting at the moment. So here's a brief explanation of how I think we're using them--we're doing this however feels right, though, so this isn't a definitive guide.

-F: Post by Felthry alone
-R: Post by Rosemary alone
-F&R: Post by both of us, with Felthry as the main fronter who wrote it
-R&F: Post by both of us, with Rosemary as the main fronter who wrote it
-F/R: Post written by Felthry on behalf of Rosemary
-R/F: Post written by Rosemary on behalf of Felthry

just once i'd like to see another game live up to our expectations for post-game content

honestly at the very least have a game-beaten state where the bad guy you just spent thirty minutes killing in an epic multi-phase boss battle is, you know, actually gone and stuff, and you can see the effect of that on people and places

it occurs to me that our excessive expectations for post-game content in video games is probably a consequence of pokemon crystal being our first video game

the game that gives you an entire second world map, eight additional bosses, and one extra super-boss, along with (minimal) additional story, after you beat it

the fact that clockwork being a thing has led to the widespread association between gears and the concept of time is rather interesting to us
