...don't tempt me

Something I wish Inquisition had given us: the option to just hang out with our friends.

We have friendly rooftop time with Sera and it’s wonderful. But where is my option to spar with Cassandra? To ask Blackwall to teach me woodworking, or Solas to teach me painting? To ask Bull if he wants a drink? To sit in a corner and read with Dorian? To wander Skyhold with Cole looking for hurts to help? To listen to Varric tell a story? To discuss fashion with Vivienne? To play more chess games with Cullen? To have another long balcony talk with Josephine? To pray to the Maker with Leliana if faithful, or to just persuade her to take a five minute break to chat if not?

Non-romantic time spent together. Give it to me.

Clearly it’s my lucky day. I got upgraded on my flight to business class, then my hotel room got upgraded for no apparent reason to a deluxe room, and then saw not only Catherine Russell on What the Butler Saw, but also Jemma Redgrave in the audience. What a time to be alive. (the only downside is that the stage door was absolute madness, not at all helped by the fact that Jemma and Catherine came out together, so I couldn’t get anywhere near but still…)

anonymous asked:

I mean we all know Red is the canon protag, but what would Red be like as an npc though, the cute guy next door who puts on a silent edgy mysterious facade?

Oh…that would be so so so cute though!

If you played as Leaf and Green and Red were boyfriends that come along with you on your journey, they’d show up at random points throughout the game, sometimes together and sometimes not

Green would appear and look around for Red and be like super disappointed “Red’s not with you? …Hmm.” And when they do show up together Red immediately goes to stand next to Green as you talk to them ;w;

Red would silently give you gifts every time he sees you, little things like potions and berries, and heals your team after you battle him.

But!! Think about this! What if GREEN was a playable character? You travel around as him, running into Red and Leaf along the way, and oh boy Red would shower him with gifts all the freaking time. And show you around places. And just generally be there and ashdkgndj you guys are giving me too many ideas aaaa

Should we just search romantic comedies on Netflix and then see what we find?

I’m selfish I know
But I don’t ever want to see you with him
I’m selfish I know
I told you but I know you never listen

I hope you can see
The shape that I’m in
While he’s touching your skin
He’s right where I should
Where I should be
But you’re making me bleed

Tempted you know
Apologies are never gonna fix this
I’m empty I know
Promises are broken like the stitches

I hope you can see
The shape that I’ve been in
While he’s touching your skin
This thing upon me
Howls like a beast
You flower you feast

okay but i know a lot of people are on the knight jeremy train, but hear me out for a second

king jeremy

one of the youngest kings out of the current kings to rule. he may not know a whole lot, but he tries his best to learn all he can so he can run a successful kingdom. who always puts his people first and is one of the kindest rulers. who creates beautiful buildings and structures either for people to live in or to decorate the kingdom. who is fair and kind and courageous. a man who is a nightmare on the battlefield and can destroy armies with little effort. a man who charges into battle with hell’s fire in his veins. who, after every battle, weeps for the lost lives and goes to the homes of the knights who gave their lives to say his condolences to the families, should their families be alive. a king who gives it his all to protect everyone, even if they have committed crimes.

literally just give me king jeremy who tries his best and is always optimistic and trying to make his kingdom a welcome place for all to come to.

“This is my life. Observe and fight. Interrogate and meditate. On the bad nights, skip the meditation. Hard to focus with sixty levels of traffic echoing below…
… not to mention the bruises and other distractions.”

I’m once more annoyed by the rpc’s reliance on fc resources – as in, gifs and icons to represent their character during every. single. reply. Some people act like they’d die without resources and it’s gets so dramatic and, honestly, pathetic. We’re a community of writers; we should be able to describe our character’s movements, expressions, and reactions without the use of a gif/icon. Am I going to say I’ve never used one? No. Am I going to say they aren’t nice? No. But so many of us have turned them into this unwitting crutch, using them to substitute writing rather than add to it. We’ve all seen that starter, that one that’s just a gif with some text. Y’know the one. There’s no writing, just that gif with a one-liner that the player didn’t even make or write and we’re supposed to treat it like a starter. But how is that a starter? 

We’re a writing community and there’s no writing in that. There’s also no effort. It’s getting so tiring; there are tons of model faces out there, like Amalie Gassman, Rania Benchegra, Bartek Baroweic, or Sol Goss, that I’d love to rp as but I can’t. Because even most rps that don’t ban any faces will still expect you to have resources, like that is somehow intrinsic to and inseparable from our writing. Even if that clause isn’t written down anywhere, maybe not even expected the admin, it’ll be expected by the other player – you end up fighting two biases: a) the fact you’re using an underused fc, and b) you don’t have any resources. ‘Cause both of those things matter to a lot of people for some silly reason.

Y’know when they don’t matter though? When you’re on mobile or when Tumblr is messing up. Yeah, those are just brief periods where you’re without a gif/icon but people are fine with it for a brief period, writing with and/or as the person without the resources. But no icons? No gifs? No, and it’s ridiculous.

Seven days ago, I applied to renew my passport. Seven! Only seven days ago, and somehow the new one is in my hand right now.

Bravo, Japan–I know I complain about you, but wow. You get shit done. Bravo, American Embassy. Bravo everybody. This is great.
