The Eight Kinds Of Duelists You Meet On Every Duel Tournament Airship
We all know there are some strong personalities in the high-flying (get it?!) world of childrens card games! Keep an eye out for these personalities next time you find yourself on a card-game blimp. See if you can recognise yourself or your friends!
Not even he thinks he’ll win! Usually found in the Party Room, kicking it with the cheerleading squad and grandiosing about how he’s totally going to take down all these more experienced and talented duelists, right after he shotguns this caffeine-inflused ginger beer.
Most likely to say: Hey! I’m in this tournament too y’know, Kaiba!
Don’t be surprised if he also turns out to literally own the place! Usually the one holed up in his double-size quarters, but don’t be fooled! It’s not because he’s shy; it’s so that he doesn’t have to deal with losers calling him “crazy” just because he’s talking to his cards and laughing maniacally.
Most likely to say: I didn’t spend the equivalent of the GDP of Malta hosting this tournament for second place, motherfuckers.
(Often accompanied by the non-duelist
The Loyal Kid Sibling
who may even be standing guard!
Most likely to say: Crush them into the dirt under your heel, big brother! Love you!)
She will find your most expensive bottle of wine and she will open it. She’s not going to get drunk, she’s just looking for that sweet spot where the alcohol takes the jitters away but leaves her sharp. Probably has a lot to put up with.
Most likely to say: I need a fucking drink after all that.
Do not disturb! This duelist will be found with the lights out and the door locked - or rather, won’t be found! It’s polite to leave him to it. After all, you never can tell the difference between a Meditator who just did a gap year in India and got really into the whole ~inner peace~ thing, and one who clings to meditation as an escape from the harrowing memories of watching his youngest sibling scream as his father carves bloody ruins into his unprotected back.
Most likely to say: I devote my service to Lord Malik! … Who is … of course … me … Yes. … I am Malik.
Not to be confused with the Megalomaniac! While the latter will do almost anything to win, this guy will go that extra mile and actually commit murder to advance his own glory! Frequently found posing, lounging and checking himself out in reflective surfaces.
Most likely to say: BOW BEFORE ME but keep your eyes up here, my eyeliner is so on fleek right now and I want you all looking at it.
The Dork Duo
This is one of those guys, you know the type, there are a few in every tournament, they seem to have a noticeable case of dissociative identity disorder but then it turns out they’re actually being possessed by the ghost of a powerful being from the ancient past? This is that one who’s actually best friends with his ancient spirit and usually can be found staring into space having a deep conversation with himself. Both of these card-game-obsessed nerds are convinced the other one is the cool one!
Most likely to say: Oh, I’m not sure, let me check with myself!
You know the type: shows up right before sign-up closes, immediately locks herself away, has a nap in an armchair, doesn’t make friends because the unknowable future is not veiled to her mystical sight and the burden of clairvoyance is to never fully focus on the present moment. Totally a mom-friend though!
Most likely to say: Terrible harm will befall you if you remain here. … No, I didn’t foresee it, I mean I’ll fucking gut you like a tilapia if you don’t get the fuck out of my room.
The Batshit Fiend
Probably a carnivore and DEFINITELY a murderer, best to stay clear of this guy! Often found standing over the remains of his latest victim - let’s hope it’s a rare steak this time and not a trio of teenagers again lol!
Most likely to say: Nothing like a warm glass of blood before bed!
So @buckybabs is currently writing an amazing Stragan fic that involves 100 different ways they say “I love you”, and that got me thinking. The podcasting community is full of different ways that different characters express their love, from platonic to romantic to familial.
Here’s the pitch: pick a relationship (or two) from a podcast you love, submit them, and the particular way they say they love each other. Actual dialogue from the show is preferred, but if you reeeeaaaally can’t find something, a made up way is okay. You can choose any relationship where love is involved, not just OTP(+)s! After August 12, or when I get 100 ways, whichever comes first, I’ll compile all the submissions and show them off!
