We can only hope for the death of this author, Zoe.
I thought Zoe was some sort of half asian chick with the way she looks now, but obviously not from this early photo...plastic surgery?
Her dialogue is always so tryhard.
It's all to be expected from a character that isn't even original, and just a shabby clone of someone better. Of course Chelsea would temporarily identify with Donna Troy's schizophrenic past and lack of personal character depth or identity. This isn't a work of fiction, it's a lazy paid livejournal entry with capeshit/fanfic flavoring.Her dialogue is always so tryhard.
Why do I have a feeling Zoe goes through this sort of thing in her head all the time after she fucks up while being a self absorbed asshole? "Alec Holowka's dead and more people than ever hate me? Time to kill off and cast away this false persona! Yes, that wasn't the real me, just like me cheating on my boyfriend for positive press coverage wasn't the real me! But this time for sure I'm going to be the real me going forward!" Nah, the selfish incompetent asshole is you, Zoe. You can pretend it's a persona all you like. It won't change anything, and you'll still be a shit person who produces nothing but shit tomorrow.
One possibility I've not seen mentioned is the dying translation industry.An aside but NeoGaf/ ResetEra is full of "Gajjin" weebs who had managed to move to Japan to do english teaching and so on to live their weeb fantasies. So this isn't outside the realm of possibility that she's found someone maybe helping her to navigate the industry over there on their dime.
Judge Dredd, meet Haramburger's post:One possibility I've not seen mentioned is the dying translation industry.
The short version for those who didn't follow GG is that one of the few areas SJWs found success was translation/localization companies. They get to make changes to "problematic" games. Most criticism of them doesn't reach their bosses as it's filtered through the translation company or the games press. Due to weebs resorting to imports to get around this problem, companies like Sony are trying to censor games at the source.
She can't speak Japanese as far as I know, so I doubt it's part of a grift, but I'm guessing that's the clique she's with.
I'll give some low down on what that picture means in his post. Weeaboo speak like using Shinigami and Onii Chan definitely implies they were anime fans in high school; back in the Tripod and Angelfire days, anime fan sites like these were all the rage for the USA/Western anime fan crowd to network and connect, and Chelsea was definitely one of them back in the day. And considering that, Chelsea was also most likely one of many weeaboos back in these times who realized that Japan wasn't her fujoshi chunnibyou wonderland where yaoi was an everyday occurrence and life in Nippon everyday was an anime. That plus Baizuo Self Righteous American Far Leftism plus faux Californiacation "Progressivism" plus Petty Bitterness Against Life Because You Aren't Popular plus EVERYTHING about Zoe Quinn equals "Let's Get Rid of Everything I Consider Problematic Because I Am A Spoiled Dog Fucking Suburbanite Hick Bitch".
Opening up her wrists would be pointless for a number of reasons, not in the least because she can just say she felt suicidal and the usual suspects will buy it. Why do something difficult dangerous and unpleasent when you can just say you have?I want to add something to the topic of a potential for a suicide attempt.
If she was to stage a suicide for sympathy, my guess would be slashed wrists in the bathtub/shower. Fairly low risk, looks dramatic (especially if she spreads some fake blood around before hand), and she can show off the scars.
I can imagine her faking her own death and assuming a new identity. She could start her con over again, and if she's found out she can say she had to do it because gamergate.
So, to add to the weeb-cringeness of this whole thing. Oni-chan doesn't mean little sister.
Japanese is full of Homophones, so you're right! It depends on the context and the chinese character as to which one you mean. Chan, meanwhile, is an honorific and is generally used for or by younger people, though not exclusively (sometimes it's just to be cute), as compared to the more formal -san or the extremely cutesy -tan.
They're not homophones. "Oni" and "onii" are pronounced differently - you extend the second vowel sound on the latter slightly. They're romanized differently and have different kanji.Japanese is full of Homophones, so you're right! It depends on the context and the chinese character as to which one you mean.

Little sister, for the record, is imouto.
This is a very interesting look into the minds of "internet people" a decade ago an how they evolved into SJWs. They are rebels looking for something to rebel against. I like how she's "writing a book" and wants people to contribute, but if she doesn't like what you contributed she'll "edit it to death". Sounds like she wants people to do work, and she'll reword it, and claim it as her own and not give credit because of how hard she had to work for fix their incompetence. It's the communist way.LIVE: Definetly not Broteam seems to have found a link between Zoe and some old chanology shit.

A post from the SA account we already knew about with an email address.
A post from the forum:
Besides the username connection there's some pics that show a vaguely feminine figure taking a photo.
I'm not 100% sold on it(zoe had a sister?) but it seems legit.
Besides showing further proof Zoe was into edgy internet shit, there's some posts about wanting to write a Chanology book and having people do most of the work for her.
Gee, what does that remind me of?
She has power in that she has some name recognition and people that will defend her no matter what. Leftists think everybody should be absolutely equal in everything all the time. Obviously that's not how the world works. How many faceless nobodies are out there jealous that she got to talk in front of the UN? She's a white, obviously cishet (despite claiming to be nonbinary) woman, so she has problematic aspects of her identity, and I'm sure there are people waiting for enough blood in the water to attack and be the new hero for the Left.She'll only address it obliquely, if at all.
She's been dancing around questions about her culpability surrounding a man's suicide for weeks. What does she have to fear from having used bad words in 2008? Every one of her supporters likely were doing the same if they were even old enough to use a computer, especially on SA. The only people who need to worry about progs finding the skeletons in their closet are people who they're actively looking for reasons to ruin. Zoe's not outwardly problematic enough yet and, more importantly, she has no power for them to steal.
I kind of feel bad for her in that aspect. I don't want to stripper shame, because God love them, but imagine being so broken that wanting to be a sex object and hole to fuck is the only validation you can hope for, despite being a strong female feminist.Explains why Chelsea was so die hard on becoming a stripper and faux Suicide Girl: she saw firsthand how much attention and conservative outrage that strippers get, and wanted in on that action.
I feel the same way. I remember dabbling with GeoCities and HTML code back in the day. I can only imagine all the dumb shit I would have said in my early 20s. Thank God I got bored of it and went out to become a heavy drinker. I feel like I dodged a bullet.Oof. I feel like I'm caught in a quantum-state between laughing at this gay shit, but remembering just how much gay shit everyone seemed to be putting online back then. Feels bad man.
