Santas Elves

Context: a one off for a holiday, simple and quick before the regular game. It was Christmas, me and my team were santa’s elves and we had to rescue him from a kidnapping. We were given 3 Christmas wishes yet, which we could summon anything we could imagine with. After trying to break into this castle, using a few wishes up (like a huge ladder to reach a window, and one person made a grenade), we finally find ourselves looking from above to see a room full of soldiers, except the soldiers are playing cards, and there’s a queen commanding this army.

Elf 1: I want to use a Christmas wish.

DM: This is your last one, what would you like to attempt to do?

Elf 1: I want to make 10,000 swords floating above the entire room, pointing down, and I want to drop them on the playing cards.

Elf 2: what the hell man??

DM: …you can certainly try

Elf 1: *rolls natural 20*

currently trying to figure out how to sell my soul to Kings in Couture by @forovnix?? any thoughts??

anonymous asked:

(rape tw) Can you explain why you don't think HIV+ people have a moral responsibility to tell potential partners their status, if that is indeed your position? I understand that if they have an undetectable viral load and they practice safer sex, the risk of transmission is very low, but it still exists, no? I'm just trying to understand. I have HPV and I feel guilty for not telling the man who raped me beforehand, and that's not even a potentially fatal illness, just an inconvenience. (1/2)

(2/2) I want to support HIV+ people and not make their lives harder, but I’m having a really hard time with this perspective from an ethical standpoint.

(anon sorry, i answered this but forgot it in my drafts)

anon, i’m not really sure where this is coming from since i haven’t posted about this in a while [since this came in before my other post got resurrected] but i’ll try to explain (and forgive me, this got so damn long but i’m quite swamped lately and have no time to edit)

i don’t think i’ve said that there’s no responsibility to disclose, and i wonder what made you think i did, but the main point i want to get across is that it doesn’t really matter what i think about the morality of nondisclosure in any given situation — what matters is whether i think it should be a serious crime. this is a separate question because the law isn’t about morality, in this case it should be about public health.

and these laws are a resounding failure from a public health perspective, especially since as written they penalize testing and usually completely fail to take into account the risk level of the activity (including condom use) or even whether transmission actually occurred (even when the charge is “criminal transmission”!). these laws were born out of stigma, not science or real ethics. but you don’t have to take my word for it; this is the accepted position among HIV/AIDS and sexual health advocacy organizations, and even the CDC is recommending that they be reviewed. i really recommend reading what these organizations have to say about it. from a quick search UNAIDS’s policy brief (pdf) seems pretty good and clear but there is much more out there.

i’m so sorry about what happened to you and i want to know that you’re not at fault at all. no rape survivor is at fault for their rape or for the consequences of the rape for the rapist. he chose to do that to you, and he accepted the risks that came with that. that is entirely on him!

i think a major problem with the debate about disclosure is that, as the UNAIDS brief says, it “places […] responsibility for HIV prevention exclusively on those already living with HIV and dilutes the public health message of shared responsibility for sexual health between sexual partners.” this applies to other STIs as well. we all have to take responsibility for our own sexual health, at least when it comes to acts we consented to.

even if it may seem to make sense on a moral level, placing the entire responsibility on people who know they’re positive for HIV or any other infection just doesn’t work. there will always be people who don’t know their status or can’t know their status for sure because they were exposed too recently. these people can’t disclose, yet if they are HIV+ they pose a much greater transmission risk than people who know they’re positive because they can’t possibly be accessing treatment, because transmission risk is highest in the acute infection stage when they’ve first contracted HIV, and because they’re less likely to be taking the additional safer sex precautions that they’d take if they knew.

there is still a profound stigma against people living with HIV and other STIs. when we’re influenced by this stigma, we’re likely to focus on finding someone to blame for transmission (or even the possibility of transmission). when we reject the stigma, we can focus on effective methods of prevention which involve helping everyone accurately judge their risk level and make informed choices to protect themselves.

you mention that safer sex with someone with an undetectable viral load is very low-risk (so low-risk, in fact, that i don’t think there’s ever been a documented case of transmission under these circumstances) but that any risk is too much. it’s fine if you feel that way; you set your own boundaries. but sex with someone who doesn’t know their status is much riskier. so is it morally permissible not to disclose to your partners that you don’t know your status? and should not disclosing that be a crime?

i don’t think most people think so, or they haven’t thought about it. to a lot of people, not knowing their status is normal, because their sexual choices are governed by assumptions: they assume that they are negative, for HIV, HSV, etc., and they assume that everyone they have sex with is negative, unless they say otherwise. they assume this partly because of lack of education, and partly because of stigma. we think of people with STIs as dirty, reckless, less than virtuous. we don’t want to think of ourselves or the people we’re intimate with that way. but of course, people with STIs are not those things — having an STI is an entirely morally neutral characteristic of a person. and these assumptions about ourselves and others aren’t sound. they are actually an obstacle to STI prevention.

so these debates trouble me because they obscure the fact that the best practice for everyone is to get tested regularly, disclose what you know about your status (including whether you know it!), and ask about your partner’s status, making it clear that it’s safe for them to be honest. and when we place all responsibility on people who know they’re positive, we validate our assumptions that everyone is negative, but we have to challenge those assumptions if we want to protect ourselves and each other. we have to acknowledge that when we decide to have sex based on the assumption that our partner must be negative, we are taking a risk. even in a world where everyone who knows they’re positive disclosed — and i believe most do — this would be a risk.

the sooner we can accept this and reject stigma, the sooner we can take steps toward more honest and open communication in our sexual lives and make healthy, fully informed choices, the sooner we can stop the spread of HIV.

Hey guys! So my husband and I are having a few problems with our car that we don’t really have the cash to pay for. Our windshield wipers basically came off and we have a temporary fix for it (zip tie) but I dunno if it will stay for long. Both of our headlights are out, and we also have a shaky steering wheel that has a bigger problem: it’s something that would be about a $1500 fix, which we do not have the money to pay for with $500+ in student loans every month + everything else haha

If you would be able to help out, my PayPal is here: paypal.me/unashamedshipper I am doing this in secret so then I can withdraw the money and give it to my husband so he can go get the car fixed and hopefully alleviate some stress on the poor dude.

(1-)Hi!!!!I just really want to talk about a scenario that keeps me awake at night. Garrison trio love!! Imagine Lance covering Pidge from an attack, obviously the wound gets infected or he gets poisoned. The three get stuck in whatever planet they are at with a delirious Lance, with the only comfort that help is on their way. Shiro and Keith are wrecking messes because they only hear Lance getting worse and worse.

(-2)At some point Lance starts confusing Pidge and Hunk with his little sister and older brother. So he starts telling them how much he misses them and bragging about his wonderful space family!! I love to read everything you write!! And would love to draw about your fics and drabbles in future . -Aru

This HURT ME in the BEST WAY.

Hunk and Pidge just hearing all about how much Lance loves them, even though he may never say it out loud.

“Hunk is so incredible, and he gives the best hugs. And he can make the best food out of anything, he’d make abuela so proud. He’s saved my ass so many times, and I never get homesick when I’m around him. When we get back to earth, I’m bringing him straight home to his family.”

“And Pidge, er, Katie…she’s so brilliant….she’s so fucking brilliant it’s amazing. She can fix anything, and I want her to get back to her family so bad. She needs her brother back, and I try my best to be a big brother to her, but it’s not the same, you know? She needs Matt and Sam, and I’ve gotta get her to them. I’ve gotta get everyone home.”

Thank you, by the way! I would love to see any drawings you do!

anonymous asked:

so i'm white and planning to adopt eventually because of fertility issues, and i was wondering if it's bad that i want to adopt non-white kids specifically? my reasoning is that i know that often they get passed over, and i don't feel the need to care for a child from infancy, or to pass it off as my own biologically, y'know? i just wanna give a kid a good home, but i worry that it'd be kind of a "white savior" thing? i just want to be helping the kids that need it most. 1/2

i also want to look into adopting disabled kids, as i’m a disabled adult and i know that they’re often passed over as well, but i don’t feel like i could handle multiple disabled children because of my​own problems, while i could help multiple abled children because they’d typically be healthier, and would require more mental/emotional support than physical. and again, i know non-white disabled kids tend to be prioritized last by people in the foster care system, so i don’t want to do that.


Hey! First I wanna start by saying I think it’s great you’re considering these aspects, and I think it’s a really good sign.

Transracial adoption does have unique risks for the children involved, but I definitely don’t think that means white people should never adopt children of color. These kids need homes, and in most cases being homed with white families is a much better alternative than being bounced around until they age out.

But there’s things you need to do first, and keep doing. Like, you need to educate -yourself- on the issues that a child of color will face, common microaggressions that people of that race deal with, and there’s often specialized knowledge you need.

Like, if you adopt a black child, it’s likely you’re going to need to learn how to take care of their hair and what products they need. If they’re older, they’ll likely have certain styles and products they already like, BUT it shouldn’t be up to them to teach you the very basics. If you go to a black hair salon and say that you’re adopting a black child and want to learn how to do their hair, it’s likely someone will be willing to teach you the basics. (But remember their time is valuable and don’t expect it to be free!)

You also need to think about who you will have around this child. They shouldn’t have to deal with your clueless racist relatives, and you need to be able to stand up for them.

When it comes to the white savior ting, that’s largely going to be a matter of keeping in mind how you’re interacting with them, how you’re thinking about them, how you’re talking about them.

I think it’d be really great to adopt a disabled child as a disabled adult, because it provides you a better level of understanding of what they’re going through and what prejudices they face than an abled adult would have. And of course, this goes for a disabled child of color too.

I really can’t weigh in on whether or not it’s better to adopt two abled children who might not otherwise get adopted, or adopt one disabled child who might otherwise not get adopted. That’s something you’d have to work out on your own, Im afraid.

Good luck!

A/N: Second part, it’s a small lil one, but I’ll post the next part real quick to make up for it (the next part will also be much longer)
Tagging: @5secondsofnephilim

Part 1

You didn’t want to admit it, so you weren’t going to—out loud. But Alexander was right. You got all of your essay’s in on time, and managed to make it to all of your exams… How you did on them, though, was a totally different story. You think you may have passed them all, but if you did, you couldn’t imagine it was by much.

“You look dead,” Alexander commented as he took a seat across from you in the local diner.

Angelica, who was sitting beside you, rolled her eyes; “Always a gentleman,” she said sarcastically, taking a fry from the plate the two of you were sharing.

Alexander just shrugged his shoulders, also stealing a fry; “Just an observation,” he said, raising his eyebrows at you.

You pursed you lips and looked down, refusing to meet his eye. You knew that HE knew he was right—but you would never give him the satisfaction of letting him hear it. Because the fact of the matter is, you felt dead. And you weren’t surprised that you looked it as well. You had spent all night the past week, writing essays and making flashcards, and all day the past week, attending classes and hanging out with Angie and Em.

Emma was starting to feel better; she went out with the group more often, and spent less time crying. She didn’t, however, stop complaining about George and then apologizing for how often she complains about George. Listening to her stress out about her relationship made you stress out—you had second hand stress.

“An irrelevant observation,” you muttered, earning yourself a glare from Alexander.

“Yet totally pertinent,” he challenged, looking you dead in the eye.

You hadn’t been necessarily avoiding the guy, but you also weren’t upset that you had barely seen him all week, apart from the lunch dates you all went on together. And this is the exact reason why.

“I’m fine, Alexander,” you sighed, “Exams are over; it’s all smooth sailing from here,” you said, grinning sardonically.

He scoffed; “Yeah,” he said trenchantly, “Until somebody comes running to you with a problem that you definitely DON’T need to fix, but do anyway,” he finished, raising his eyebrows.

You rolled your eyes, but before you could shoot something back, Angelica intervened. “Is this what you two were arguing about on Friday?” She asked, her brows furrowed.

You sighed; “Stupid isn’t it?” You asked, pointedly.

“I’m just saying,” Alex began, completely ignoring you as he scooted out of the booth, “That you look like you’re on the brink of death, and probably feel that way, too. And if you’d look after yourself once in a while instead of looking after everybody else, maybe you’d be a functioning human being.”

You pursed your lips, “There’s nothing wrong with looking out for your friends, Alexander,” you spat, bitterly.

He stole a fry before beginning to walk away; “Then why do you get so damn defensive when I try looking out for you?” He asked, plopping the fry into his mouth as he left.

You rolled your eyes and shook your head, taking a sip of your water, because there was really nothing else you could do.

A moment passed of silence, before Angelica spoke once again; “He kind of makes a good point,” she said quietly, like saying it was taboo.

You shook your head; “He’s upset because we’ve been with Emma so often recently—like we aren’t with her all the time, anyway,” you explained, “He’s just being intrusive.”

Angie shrugged, “I don’t know,” she said, taking another fry, “You are pretty… Dedicated.”

You looked at her, letting your shoulders drop; “If anything horrible happens to me, I’d expect you guys to be there for me, too,” you explained, “I don’t want her going through anything alone.”

Angelica nodded her head in understanding; “I know,” she said softly, “But maybe she just needs some time. We can’t rush her to feel something she just doesn’t feel.”

You nodded your head, furrowing your eyebrows as you took another drink.

Angie continued; “… And you have been putting off your own needs all week,” she said, her voice soft, like how she talks to her younger sisters.

You sighed in frustration; “But why does he get to tell me to take a break, when he’s over there, working 24/7, ignoring his basic needs as a human, not listening to anybody?” You asked, “Why would he think that that’s okay for him to do?”

Angelica shrugged; “Well, as much as we hate to admit it, Alexander is right the majority of the time.”

“Yeah,” you agreed resentfully, “And he never lets us forget it.”

She chuckled, nodding her head; “I don’t know, Y/N,” she said with a sigh, “I think he might like you a little bit.”

You nodded you head, “Of course he does,” you muttered, taking a bite of a fry, “I’m great.”

“That’s true,” Angelica said skeptically, “But, really; he didn’t have a sit-down conversation with me about taking care of myself, and we’ve been doing everything with Emma together. And you’ve seen the ways he looks at you.”

You rolled your eyes, your heartbeat beginning to pick up in embarrassment, and also your hatred for confrontation, probably. “He looks at every girl like that,” you muttered in opposition.

“Not me,” she shot back, “And not Emma.”

You rolled your eyes; “You guys just don’t notice it— you two are those really pretty girls in the movies, who, for some reason, never notice all the lovey dovey looks they get. Namely, from Alexander,” you argued.

Angelica scoffed, “Yeah right,” she laughed, “Y/N, I think he likes you—let’s ask John, he’ll know—“

“No!” You exclaimed, “We can’t ask John—I already know he doesn’t like me like that,” you shrugged, “If he did, he would’ve told me already. You’ve seen the dude; he’s been writing love letters to girls since the fifth grade.”

“What if he’s nervous,” she posed, raising her eyebrows.

You scoffed; “Angie. We’ve seen Alexander in his debate class—he’ll argue with anybody at he drop of the hat, he’ll confront anybody just for the sake of confronting them. The kid doesn’t get nervous!”

“Whatever you say,” Angie sighed, “But I bet you ten dollars he does.”

You looked at her with pursed lips; “Deal.”

anonymous asked:

[Part 1] DSP said that they wanted to cancel the TGG remake, but didn't they then release a statement saying they would continue it anyway? I-I might be wrong.. I agree with you one some things in the manga, but I think that it's primary purpose was to introduce people to the game. Idk I'm sorry. I'm just happy with the manga because we get some more Fukami content and I feel like he's so underrated. But I know that's a silly reason.

[Part 2] And the thing with Sananivlis is that DSP has to get bored of them at some point.. Right? Right now when I look at the Sunahama I see random doodles of characters. Iglis, Gyakuten, an occasional cat (still some Ivlis). I think that might mean they’re still working on the Satanivlis game. After that they’re guaranteed to continue on the other games, right?

if it was meant just for introducing people into the game…then funamusea still should have communicated that to us. they never told us exactly why the manga was made, if there was a real reason, so im thinking it was actually made for the fans. but dont get me wrong im glad fukami has more spotlight!! im gay as shit for him lmao..but this isnt a fuakmi manga, its the watgbs manga. all characters should be treated with care

with the tgg remake, i heard they either stopped working on it entirely, or its going to take a while. i honestly dont mind either way..but its still sad. theyre not obliged to make games or anything for the fandom, really. but it feels like they care more about their ships than the fandom itself

yeah, right now theyre FINALLY calming down with the satanivlis. because they suddenly released a manga for it…i just want more art of other characters..
wait, is there going to be a game about satanivlis?? oh boy :/

i sure hope they work on other stuff after this..i honestly like their game content
