This helped me cheer up today, and I’d figure I’d share incase anyone else needed cheering up, too :)

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)
So I met Gillian Anderson at New York Comic Con. She has been one of my idols since I was a kid. When I went to take the photo with her, I said that I wish my mom was here to take the photo as well. She asked me where she was. I couldn’t reply with, she died four years ago, within the span of 2 seconds. I said, “um dead.”
The photographer snapped this photo. Immediately afterwards she lost her shit and ran laughing to the camera man. He offered to retake the photo but I insisted that I wanted it.
The next day I went to get it signed by her. I went up to the table and said, “Hi again! I had to take this photo and get it signed!”
She smiled and paused for a few seconds before writing something.
She wrote “This is for Mom!”
I thanked her and almost cried as I walked away.
This has to be one of the best autographs I have ever gotten in my life.
re: hennigate '14
- sister: It's really weird, if she left of her own accord, you'd think she'd have waited until the game was finished production, though
- me: It might be though??
- me: or close
- me: we know that she's been working on it for months with at least troll stashwick
- me: they won't throw all that away, it'll be too costly and inefficient.
- sister: Spoiler: naughty dog pulls a beyonce and it's out next week
Even in real life, Kristen Bell hopelessly pursues the idea of snowman building with her big sister Elsa. (x)
rhiannon42 replied to your post:rhiannon42 replied to your post:and I’m still not…Just IGN saying Sony said it. But, still. At this point, I think if it weren’t true, ND or Sony or *someone* would’ve said something. Shut down the rumor mill. And they’ve all been silent.
It’s them being so silent that gives me pause, quite honestly. You would think, especially since the rumor is that she was “forced out,” that there would be words to be had from the people at Naughty Dog. Even just well-wishes in her future endeavors, but somewhere around 60% of the people I follow on twitter are ND people and none of them have said anything.
At this point I’m wondering if maybe she’d been planning to leave for a while, perhaps for personal reasons, and the “forced out” part was just hearsay or speculation on Sony’s part, if their comment on the situation is legit. Even if there were creative differences or a difference of opinion on some inner working of the company, I don’t think it’s the type of thing where someone so influential would just up and leave. What seems more likely, to me, is that if she left because of a difference in opinion, it had probably presented itself mid-production or earlier and has just gotten worse over time and she decided to finish out Uncharted 4 and have it be her last hurrah with the company.
It’s really hard to speculate on any of it, really, because of the huge lack of commentary on the subject, but I’m hopeful that Hennig has had enough of an impact on the gaming industry for people to take notice and call out this bullshit if it’s really what it is, and also hopeful that Neil recognizes the direction Amy has taken the franchise and won’t do anything against it. He may have different tastes than Hennig as far as the direction of his writing, but considering he worked with her on Drake’s Fortune and Among Thieves, I don’t think he’d drastically change the direction of the franchise. I definitely don’t think he’d try and make it a The Last of Us style thing.
It all comes back to there not being enough information at this juncture to properly decipher what happened or what it means for the company or the franchise. I might be burying my head in the sand on this one but I’m just not willing to give in to despair about it all just yet.
I dunno, if it was a “forced” thing, where it got ugly and she left on bad terms, then I could see there being a blanket gag order going out for people not to comment on it.
"…considering he worked with her on Drake’s Fortune and Among Thieves, I don’t think he’d drastically change the direction of the franchise."
Reportedly he wanted to kill off Elena for real in Among Thieves. So his involvement there does not fill me with hope.
You’re right about there not being not enough information— not just on Hennig’s departure, on the next game in general. If we had a release date for, say, later this year, I’d probably be much less worried. Because if it was coming out in November, the odds that the story could be redone aren’t high. If we knew who was in the game, I’d know which characters to be worried about. But as-is, we know basically nothing, and thus I’m assuming the worst.
It’s more or less how I protect myself. Expect the worst so that if the worst happens, I’m braced for it, and if things aren’t as bad as expected, then I’m pleasantly surprised.
