can you explain that thread the needle joke. i didnt get it :/
the “thread the needle” joke goes something like-
“In the academy, they called me ‘The Tailor’ because of how I ‘thread the needle’.”
Lance is either referring to how he can maneuver spacecrafts through tight spaces effectively (much like threading an actual needle) or he’s talking about ‘threading the needle’ in the dirty manner (intercourse, dicks out [or “in” in this case]).
This was his expression while saying it. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Either way, the joke is really popular in the fandom and still haunts me to this day.
thank you all for sending me so many ideas! the requests I’m listing down here are the ones that caught my attention, which I’ll consider for my future writings.
keep in mind that I won’t follow this list 100% accurately. I am posting it so you guys have a general idea about the scenarios I might write in the future. these are the ones that I think fit my style best, by the way - and once again, thank you for requesting, even if yours is not on this list!
don't you think it's a little selfish for rucas shippers to say they're going to quit the show if l*caya or r*arkle happens?
No. Anyone can decide to stop watching a show for whatever reason they want to. As long as they don’t try to cancel the show through twitter (like certain parts of the fandom did when ski lodge came out), there’s nothing wrong with rucas shippers deciding they’ve had enough because their ship and their favorite characters are not getting the attention they deserve.
And I’m sorry, but how can you even think about calling rucas shippers “selfish” when adult theorists on the other side of the fandom constantly make posts insulting their intelligence, when people who ship r*arkle/fans of Farkle constantly bring down people who prefer rucas/Lucas (going as far to use words like “insane”), and when sometimes, even r*laya shippers (not all of you, most of you are lovely people) attack them for preferring rucas over r*laya or think Lucas is actually a good boyfriend.
I honestly don’t know what else to say to this other than you have no right to call people selfish just because they are honest about their dislike of this show/fandom that is seriously disrespectful towards them.
I keep looking at this question and wanting to reply: RIGHT NOW. But! Streaming right now would be a bit more rare since I run off of my computer a lot for reasons. The test one was sorta a special occasion day.
I NEVER POSTED THE PICTURE FROM THE TEST STREAM I JUST REALIzED
I was just thinking about how glad I am that you separated SAL and Fae Tales so Jack and Pitch don't exist in your Fae Tales verse. I like Jack and Gwyn as friends and they would never be friends in a world where Game Theory happened. In my mind, SAL Augus and Fae Tales Augus are kind of different people.
I completely agree, so so much. I mean, I think of those Augus’ as quite different as well now. Also because Augus’ back story in Fae Tales is just different? (Despite intending to sexual assault Terho, he can’t go through with it, but Terho is so traumatised by the experience, that he believes it happened anyway, and Augus encourages that, because he hates how weak he is).
I had to start kind of thinking of them as different characters pretty early on. For readers though, I made sure he went through a pretty ‘trial by fire’ initial process with Gwyn at least, so that people who wanted revenge against him (and there were/are a lot of people who feel that way) could sort of idk, have some kind of catharsis maybe, or experience a ‘yeah fuck YOU Augus’ before moving on and potentially seeing him differently.
For all of us who came out to the other side of that, I think there’s quite a lot who do see FT and SAL Augus as quite different.
And yeah I completely agree, Jack and Gwyn couldn’t be friends in the Fae Tales world. So when I write things like What If, with Jack/Gwyn/Pitch, I pretend Fae Tales isn’t an option, and it won’t continue on like that. It’s not so hard to do these days. And I feel like FT has the ‘real’ Augus, where as SAL has a more ‘extreme’ Augus that suited the story.
i wonder if one day when Jack is just lounging about in the Haus on his Kindle, reading an article on WWI history, and Bitty is in the kitchen heating up leftovers, Holster and Ransom will walk in from class and see this and chirp “Dude, domestic much. Do you guys have your future kids’ names picked out too? lol”
Bitty’s face will redden and he’ll roll his eyes, ready to retort that he’s barely even being domestic by microwaving last night’s dinner, but Jack won’t even look up as he says absently, still half-focused on his article, “Yeah. Charlotte if it’s a girl and Jaime if it’s a boy. Maybe Richard, too, but I have to ask Bits about that.”
Holster, Ransom, and Bitty will kind of just stand there, slack-jawed, until Jack looks up and he’s like, “Why is everyone looking at me what did I say.”
