“Really? That’s the answer you’re going with?” She smiled; annoyed, amused, impressed, all at once.
“You think it’s a lie?”
“No, I think it’s a cop-out. A way to avoid lying without answering. Everyone fucks up. Even if you fuck up more than once, more than most, family tends to find a reason to talk you up.”
Danny’s lips curled. “Talkin’ about yourself now?”
“No, still you,” hers curled back as she tipped back the beer bottle. “Still waiting for a real answer.”
“Well, when I fuck up, I like to fuck up big. Really make a mark.”
Danny’s lower lip tucked in as he sized her up; he nodded like he’d figured something out. Something deep, something profound. “You’re good, ya know that.”
“Mmm…really good.” He shifts slightly, in her direction. “Hey, uh…you goin’ to the thing tonight?”
“The family party?”
“You should come, maybe you’ll find your big break there.”
“That an invitation, Danny?”
“Something like that. Ya gonna come?”
The offer struck her as too good to be true, made her wary. “I’m not going to get there only to get kicked out, am I?”
“No,” his tone accentuated his offended look. “I promise, you’ll have a seat. No problems.”
She smiled, gave a nod. “Okay then, I’ll go…thanks.”
“Great,” Danny finished off his beer, stood. “See ya tonight.”
“Danny?” Maybe she shouldn’t question it, but she had to ask. “Why?”
He paused just inside the backdoor, smiled with that fake politeness the rest of his family had whenever she went off-script with her questions. “If you wanna write about my family you oughta really get to know ‘em, right?” He didn’t look back as he headed out, called to his mother with cracks about the tug-of-war teams.
Picks up directly after the last one I wrote…still not sure what I’m doing, exactly, but I’ll keep writing it as long as it’s in my head, haha! The inspiration comes in no small part to a vid by @wolfca-lochdubh. Still not sure what the female reporter looks like so keeping it vague; maybe I’ll give her a face one day, don’t know.
(I forget where the top gif came from due to holding onto it for so long, but it’s not mine and all credits go to whoever made it, bottom is from Google)
justin in a disinterested monotone: I cast prestidigitation and shoot sparks out of my fingers. cast minor illusion put myself in a dope outfit and start walking down the catwalk with all the style and panache I can muster. which is, I should know, a fucking lot. griffin laughing: yeah roll charisma justin still in a fucking monotone: oh that– that’s weird I got 30 because it’s so fucking fly. that’s very strange and interesting.
Can people not get upset about the dad dating sim the Grumps helped make when it’s not even out yet
Like, it’s probably gonna be a little silly because the Grumps and their friends were involved, but it’s an entirely gay male dating sim that doesn’t appear to cater to yaoi fangirls. Which is unprecedented afaik. And anyway, it’s not out yet! Maybe it’s awesome, we don’t know yet
Like i know we all wanted to either have a Grump dating sim like that one Normal Boots did, or like a sidescrolling beat-em-up or an RPG where we play as the Grumps. But these guys endeavor to do things differently, and never do what we expect.
Lots of people worked really hard on this for over a year, the least we could do is give it a fair chance. Just sayin.
Someone in the AC tag: Ugh, another Assassin’s Creed game. They all went to shit after 3-4-whatever, nothing can redeem this franchise, why would anyone be interested in it anymore. I’d rather play any other game.
