Hello, internet!

First off, thank you for dropping by and checking out my Patreon campaign! You rock for just taking an interest, eh.

Video games and babbling about video games on the internet has been a large and wonderful part of my life for a long, long time. It's the ultimate pipe dream to turn these hobbies into something I get paid for. As unlikely as a dream seems to be, you can't make anything happen if you don't at least try... so here's my Patreon page. 

My website, lividlightning.com, is mostly about celebrating that fun aspect of video games, trying to be indifferent about backlog monsters, and venting about the sometimes cruel but often beautiful life thing. The majority of the internet seems to be caught up in a never-ending flame war about which games are the "best", while crapping on unfortunate games that get slapped with the terrible label. I just want to have fun and celebrate ALL games for being awesome in their own way. Everyone connects with media items in different ways. NO ONE can say their opinion is "right". Popular opinions are still just opinions.

My primary topics are:

Video Games - I find no joy in picking apart games, over-analyzing flaws, and pouncing on little issues that mean almost nothing in the grand scheme of things. I review games to remember the glorious journey I took through their world. But hey, if I'm stuck with a buggy unplayable mess, damn right I'll rage about it. I also like to do babblethroughs (something like written Let's Plays) of special games that have stolen my gamer heart.

Book Reviews - There are so many great books out there! I haven't been much of a reader, but I'm working on changing that by reading moar novels and writing about them.

Asexual Representation - This is a topic that is important to me. After a lifetime of struggling alone and feeling isolated in a seemingly sex crazed world, I recently discovered asexuality is a valid orientation. I'm still figuring out how the romance thing works in my mind, but I'm proud to identify as a demiromantic asexual. More people need to know about the invisible orientation! I will promote any media items with respectful ace characters that I stumble across in my internet travels. To be clear, all orientations and their various forms of love are truly beautiful. The more representation, the better!

Thank you for considering becoming a Patron! I'll keep the writer pipe dream alive, no matter what :)
