[ So reading theories on the new game is currently my favorite thing to do and I love you all for brainstorming and brimming with excitement.
However, coming at this from a game design standpoint I imagine it would be very risky for Gearbox to allow Telltale Games to build on the lore in any significant way, especially in any way that informs the events of any future Borderlands titles.
I don’t think ‘Tales from the Borderlands’ s going to draw the same numbers as the shooter and you risk alienating fans by putting huge plot points in a bridge game with a totally different style of gameplay than what fans of the series are used to (looking at you Kingdom Hearts).
My best guess is that this might be a story that runs parallel to the events of Borderlands 2 (and crosses paths with the BL2 plot in clever ways), but will be an independent experience and not have any major bearing on the universe and Borderlands 3.

( So gorgeous. I know nothing about the nitty-gritty of cosplay or costume making, but I LOVE this bodysuit and all the great seams. If I ever got my hands on something like this I’d probably be like a kid with their first Halloween costume and refuse to ever take it off.)
“I suddenly started shipping Angel and Zer0 because my headcanon for Zer0 is that he’s a type of robot and I like the idea that Angel could have private conversations with him.”
[AU where Angel’s last act is to download her consciousness into the only system within reach that Jack doesn’t have access to- Zer0.]
:D Thank you so much! I really want to cosplay Angel again, that’s for sure! But before I can cosplay her again, I need to make me a wig with a side cut, since I cut my own hair short by now : / Still, I have many other plans and I hope I manage to get them all done next year. One of my next projects is this beautiful Vault Hunter Angel version by the awesome and talented phaselockandload! She was so kind and gave me the permission to use her design for a cosplay! I really want to do this one and it wouldn’t be that hard to style the wig.
Thanks again! :DDDD
[Pardon me but I have to flail and bounce over the the fact that a lovely cosplayer wants to breathe life into one of my drawings! That the stuff of fanartist’s dreams. <3333]
Poster is finished!!! I sent it off to be printed yesterday, I hope it comes back alright!
I thought it’d be a bit much to post a WIP and then the finished thing on tumblr in one day so I waited to post… XD *socially awkward even on tumblr* x.X
The gun is an actual playable weapon in the game wooooo
I like this mostly, I hope my darlin likes it when he gets it for Xmas ^___^
And it’s a sign that you’re alive.
But when your life does nothing but tear you down
Will you let yourself drown?
Spit and scream
Show them you’re there
But when it’s time to show face will you just stare?
Rip into flesh
And rattle their bones
Treat it all like it’s your throne
Snarl and squeal
Because it’s all just a good meal
Clench your jaw and seal the deal
Meat ground tender
Leading you to a bender
And when it all falls through
Who will be there for you?
Slow and Gentle, Krieg thinks for maybe the millionth time in his recent existence, always surprised when just in this case, his body listens to him. The first time they’d done this, graceful hands tugging at him, eager and insistent, he’d been terrified. He’d been worried that just the adrenaline, the simple rush of blood, would be too much like the building rage he carried with him everywhere and he’d snap and hurt her. Like sex was a battlefield and not an act of love. He’d held his breath, reminding himself over and over again, Gentle, This is not a fight, as he’d let her take the lead, first taking off her top, then her pants. And when she’d straddled him, leaning forward to bring their lips together as she moved, he’d been surprised to feel only awe and excitement and lust, no rage. So he stopped gritting his teeth but he never stopped reminding himself, Slow. Gentle. This is not all about you. Because even without the rage, he is not a gentle man. Without a constant reminder, his large, rough hands hold her hips a little too tight, his thrusts are always a bit too fast. His body wants her, all of her, now but it isn’t all about him and more than that, he really doesn’t want it to be. One of his top favorite things (right after her smiles) are the faces and noises she makes as she comes unwound by his touches. She is all control, as steady as she is fierce, trained since birth to reign in the power that lives inside her. For her to let herself go, to release her hard earned control is rare; to see her shudder and moan unbidden and unashamed is a sight she saves only for him.
