You fucking idiots

  • Haema: *Bans 90% of completely healthy blood donors permanently for stupid reasons such as deafness, body decorations, bisexuality, transsexuality or minor mental illnesses and adds more conditions to their pointless blacklist every year*
  • Haema: Oh no, our number of donors is sinking with each year! We don't understand why no one wants to donate blood anymore. We even offer our donors a tiny bit of cash as compensation for their generous donation!

I may seem like a fierce, merciless dragon while doing any sort of working business but when it comes to love I turn into a baby kitten.

Just looking at something old and imagining it being used by somebody, or being very precious to them during their life, gives that thing so much spiritual (eh not the right word) significance to me. And I kind of like seeing what our human world looks when it's dead or dying. It's not something you think about every day. You're right, apocalyptic scenarios are great for making friends... and enemies as well. Which is almost as much fun. Running out of room, I agree gas masks are super cool :D

Exactly! To see the ruins as they decay long after all humans have left sure is fascinating and allows you to imagine the world as it would look like after it ended.

Pff, those who make enemies are usually the selfish douchebags and bully-types from school who are not bright enough to realize that it’s best to simply work together and trade goods with other survivors. :3

Well, thanks for sharing your personal thoughts on this! It was fun talking to you. :)

Holy shit Metro 2033 sounds perfect. Is it a PC game? I only have an Xbox 360 and a plain ol' regular Xbox, and I've just done a bit of PC gaming. Otherwise if I get desperate I'm sure I could find a Let's Play of it on YouTube. And your answer was really cool to read. I'd love to do UE but I scare easily and would need someone with me :/ I love sort of thinking about what happened there but I guess I have more of an emotional bent on it. (Going to have to put this in 2 asks)

Both Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light are available on Xbox360, but they look a bit better on PC because PC has more technical capability. :)

Thanks! Indeed, urbex is best done with a friend. No one should ever go alone, because you never know if you’ll get stuck and need someone to be able to go get help.

Hey everybody!
I noticed that all the Romantically Apocalyptic wallpapers come in a higher resolution (1920x1200) than my screen (1920x1080) so I decided to crop some of them to the right size in a better way than what the automatic settings Windows applies if you use an image too large for your screen.
But wait, there’s more!
Some of those images were slightly edited, went through a color correction or had their saturation and brightness adjusted to work better as desktop backgrounds.
I showed these edited wallpapers to Alexiuss, he liked the idea and encouraged me to publicly share them, so I re-added the url to each wallpaper and uploaded them for you folks to download! Hooray!
Click on the image above and it will take you to the imgur gallery. To download a wallpaper, click on this icon.To download all the wallpapers at once, go here.

I'll be sure to check out that comic! Just by glancing I already love the art. I've not played Metro 2033 nor have I heard of it. What's it about? And may I ask what draws you to the (post)apocalyptic genre? I always assumed it would be more appealing to iNtuitives, so I've very curious to see what about it attracts you.

Oh please do read the RA comic! There is such a great story and lovely characters in it, I’m sure you will love them! :)

Metro 2033 is a horror sci-fi ego-shooter that plays in post-apocalyptic Moscow. The humans have escaped the nuclear winter and the radiations by fleeing into the underground tunnels of the city, making the metro their new home.

They split into factions that still fight each other to death over territory and goods. The city above is a place too dangerous to live now, as it is filled with dangers, nightmarish mutants, and an advanced humanoid race with the power to bend human thoughts.

Metro Last Light is the sequeal to Metro 2033 and begins not long after where the first game left off.

What draws me to the post-apocalyptic genre?

There are many reasons… Let me tell you about some of them.

First there’s urban exploration. I love going on adventures, and to me abandoned places always had something fascinating about them, a feeling of awe and curisity at those creepy, dark, cold and moist places that will always give me the chills, because you never know what you’re going to find… or what will find you.

Visiting those burned out closed down places gives me food for new ideas and thoughts, allowing me to picture the possible past of those places like fragments of a movie in my head. I try to imagine what those places looked like when they were still in use, what life at that time was like, and why or how it all ended. It’s like the buildings are telling me their stories as I walk on the remains of a life long forgotten, taking in fragments of memories with each step and replaying the past in your head as if you’ve been there.

Urban exploration is a hell of an experience for me.

Another thing I always like about post-apocalyptic stories is the constant suspense in them, the main character’s fear of being eaten alive at any moment, stepping into a deadly trap or experiencing any other kind of unfortunate events that may lead to suffering or death. It is terrific to watch as their fear motivates them enough to be constantly aware of their surroundings, making use of all their senses to survive each day.

This often results in the main character needing a best buddy to share exhausting tasks like being on guard while the other one is resting, acquiring more supplies together and helping each other out if one gets sick or injured. I think it is a base for a great friendship that builds up on mutual trust and seeing that in a story always gives me a warm feeling.

A third thing that always gets me interested in the genre is the idea that in sci-fi, there are no limits to scientific possibilities and technical inventions, ranging from giant caterpillars that roam the metro to artificial intelligences on simple household objects or world-dominating super computers.

As a final note here I’ll have to add that characters in gas masks are simply rad as fuck.

Hi! I just read your post about being an ESTJ and not liking parties and thought it was really interesting and nicely written. I checked out your blog and thought it was very cool (I really like the apocalyptic genre as well), and it's fun for me to read about your personal thoughts and whatnot. I just wanted to say hi and I think you're cool :D

Thanks! :) Hearing that made me really happy.

If you’re a fan of apocalyptic stuff, I’d say you should definitely check out our webcomic at http://romanticallyapocalyptic.com/

I see you’re also into video games. Have you played the Metro 2033 series? I can definitely recommend them.

Btw I just put a link to my Twitter in my side bar, if you want to follow me there for more.
