One Shots: I think I’m turning Japanese
I’ve got your picture of me and you
You wrote “I love you,” I love you too
I sit there staring and there’s nothing else to do
We’ve all been there when a “good” Japanese demon of legend has a legit crush on one of the leaders of the Illuminati. How else to express that unrequited love than with a commissioned painting and some headless mannequins?
“In honor of Secret World Legends’ Kristen Geary,” posted reader Koshelkin. This is exactly how court restraining orders get started.

Camelotcrusade complains about a hated character in SWTOR: “Ugh, I know I’m going to egret re-posting this NPC. Just seeing him makes me think a fowl plot is afoot, and him holding a computer is a tern for the worse. I hope there isn’t another one around the corner, or this won’t be pheasant. Then we’ll have two birds stoned at once (or whatever tweaks your beak, as they say). Sorry for grousing, I’m just not used to this kind of tweetment. Owl see you later.”
We all know MMORPGs aren’t entirely divorced from real world influences, and in many cases thrive on those connections. For this week’s screenshot challenge, share a picture of a location or NPC that is a clear reference to a real-world country or culture.
