a tib it

ghostravens  asked:

can you explain me why you (and apparently everyone) don't want orion back? i'm genuinely curious

he was a notorious metagamer (using information he didn’t have as tibs while in-character) who lied about dice rolls (which cr stats has confirmed that a lot of his rolls didn’t add up + matt straight up said on reddit at one point that orion cheated w/ dice rolls + you can even see marisha and tal leaning over to check on his rolls at the end)

in addition to that, he just… was kind of a shitty player in general when it comes to player etiquette? his last episode was unwatchable for a lot of people because he hogged time for one-on-one shopping that was for a project that was so unrealistic that even MATT was getting sick of, and the other players were uncomfortable too. he also tried to circumvent percy’s entire personal arc by trying to form an army from his father, which is just… shitty for tal AND matt on top of not being something he’d logically be able to do.

on that note, he had a tendency to step all over other players in general? like the time vex shot an arrow to hit a button and it was successful but he made sure to say that he used magic to make it go in so he got credit? and him bamfing out of the kvarn fight and being pissed off at matt because he was convinced matt was specifically trying to kill him lol.

there was also the time he blew up at a fan shortly before his last episode because the fan made a tshirt (i think?) with tibs on it and he got offended bc tibs is his ‘property’ and he told the fan he was “#uncrittered” and laura and travis stepped in to tell the fan that he was perfectly fine and that he did nothing wrong

there are other things that added up, but those are the big reasons why i dont like him, never want him back on cr, and why watching older episodes with him in it is often hard for me lmao

edit: the crstats bit was misinformation i heard from somebody else so that’s my bad y’all. the rest still stands.

Who wants to talk about polymachina soulmate marks? I’m a sucker for fics with soulmate marks, especially ones where people get more than one, and like there’s so many ways to spin in like, does the symbol represent the person? Is it their name? Is it the first thing they say to them? 

All the options are great, okay. I’ve seen the first two a bunch and I love them, but let me submit for consideration:

  • Vax with a big ‘NO’ on his back, just over his heart (it shouldn’t surprise anyone that it’s one of the first things to come out of his sister’s mouth)
  • Vex with ‘Mine’ written in the same spot in the same deep navy blue color (no one’s surprised, twins are often platonic soulmates, and it’s clear Vex and Vax are two halves of a whole)
  • But they have other words too
  • There’s a rich purple ‘well hello to you too’ running down Vax’s side (and somehow when Gilmore says it, it sounds exactly the way he always thought it would)
  • What makes less sense is the great gray handprint on his lower back and the magenta music notes curling around his arm
  • (It makes sense when Grog introduces himself with a smack to the chest that knocks Vax off his feet and Scanlan does so with a wordless melody)
  • The ‘oh, um, hi’ on the inside of his his left arm makes perfect sense when he meets Keyleth (what’s weird is the matching words they both share on the inside of the right that they don’t recognize until they meet Kashaw)
  • Vex and Vax share the same golden word running down their spine and Pike has their greetings wrapped around her wrists
  • Grog’s not sure what to make of his until he meets Pike. Goliath’s typically have imprints of hands, not words (she first reads out her own words that stretch across Grog’s shoulders almost like wings)
  • She laughs gently as she reads out ‘well aren’t you a big fella’ and ‘please don’t step on me’ 
  • He tries to sound out her words when Pike lets him see them. He does alright with the big ‘I’m so sorry’ on her shoulder (the ‘hello gorgeous’ on her right leg gives him a bit more trouble)
  • Sometimes he wishes his were words too, but that fades when he finds just where his hand fits (on Vax’s back, Vex’s waist, Keyleth’s shoulder, Percy’s leg, Scanlan’s ass) 
  • Pike’s always liked the big gray hand that covers one of her own, it’s her favorite (the neat scrawl in celestial on the side of her neck is a close second)
  • It’s a shock to Percy that he seems to be covered in words, a ‘hey there handsome’ across his lower back and a matching ‘are you alright, darling’ over his chest, and a long rambling string of words in red that covers most of his back 
  • He’s never sure just when the words on his back turned gray, but he notices when the matching red on Keyleth’s arm fades just the same
  • Keyleth loves her words, they’re a rainbow on her skin (the deep gray handprint and dark brown words on her right arm give her pause, but she comes to love them just the same)
  • Her fingers like to trace the golden greeting on her clavicle and the ‘you poor dear’ on the back of her hand in vibrant teal
  • She used to love the bright, almost glittering ramble that ran down her arms (it feels like a part of her rips away when the letters fade and grow dull)
  • But it hurts less after a while, the words become a sad memory, but at least she always has a piece of him on her skin. If she closes her eyes, she can almost hear the wind whisper the words to her

I just really like these kinds of aus, might do more like this later. But I would also love to see what other people prefer in terms of what the marks are. I’ve seen a bunch of fics with this au and they’ve all been amazing, and I think there’s always room for more!

kelasparmak  asked:

lately i've been thinking a lot about an au where julius escapes & joins vox machina instead of percy. it's a fic i'm never going to write, but it made me wonder if in that au tiberius would live. because, well, stubborn bookish glasses-wearing nerd with questionable social skills and what seem to be v similar issues to percy's re fathers - i think julius would latch on and refuse to let him just leave. idk if this is a thought you will appreciate at all but i'm sad about it and wanted to share.

what the fuck, man. why would you. why would you do that. to me and also to Julius de Rolo. Because it’s not just Tibs, you realize, reminding him of Percy. There are small ones, albeit gnomes rather than younger siblings, and there are twins (though I do headcanon Vex most similar to Vesper), and there’s almost the right number of people, even - and the differences don’t matter, not one whit, except to make the absences hurt worse. We don’t know much about Julius de Rolo aside from his favorite brothel, but we can safely assume he’d spent his whole life corralling half a dozen younger siblings, and meant to keep it up: keeping them in line and keeping them safe, in equal measure. His family and his city -  his city, the heir, future Lord de Rolo of Whitestone - and he completely failed. His baby sister got him out, for fuck’s sake, and then he left her to die in the snow, has never even gone back. What the fuck kind of eldest brother does that? Though also: I like to imagine him as a paladin of Pelor, and I wonder if, in these circumstances, he’d take mostly levels in Fighter instead. Because also: what the fuck sort of god abandons his charges like that? What are either of them worth. Yesss, give me bitter, brokenhearted Julius who doesn’t think he’s worth anything as a leader but steps into the role whenever he isn’t thinking about it because he was raised for this, and who looks after the rest of Vox Machina fiercely because they’re all a substitute, a second chance, for/at the family and people he abandoned.

Hi everyone!
We tried Tibs's spell with Allura's advice and it worked. Really well!!
We apologize if the mail raven is very tired when it arrives, but
we're sending Allura's instructions for the image capture and the image
transfer spells. We're going to send you as many of these as we can so
you'd better do the same!!
xoxo Kiki + Vax

P.S. Also, Kiki figured out the pebble trick.

Letters from Zephra to distant family & friends, part 1.
[part 2] [part 3]

status | OPEN

Tiberius would be an absolute liar if he said the vast array of color and commotion happening in the square didn’t draw him in. Like moth to flame, dark eyes took on an almost childlike wonder as fire flashed past him, acrobats and jesters twirling about on their toes, manic laughter falling from their lips and filling the streets. A girl, lips dripping in silver, placed a kiss to the inside of his wrist, granting him entry to the outlandish affair, and he stared, wondering what kind of warped wristband it was.

To his left a sharp pop rings out in the air, not quite a gunshot, something light pattering over his head and shoulders like rain. Confetti. And that’s when he feels it, the lightest touch, picking at the strands of his hair, dancing along the back of his neck. His fight mode kicks in.

“Get off me,” he warns, the pitch of his voice jumping high, quick to whip around, weaseling away from the curious hands only to meet the wicked grin of a jester. The whites of his teeth just as bright as the golden bells adorning his shoes. “Solo perché sei in un leotard di una ragazza non significa che non ti colpirò,” he snarls, nudging the jester away with a shove. Giving a disgruntled huff, Tiberius ran a tentative hand through his dark locks, adjusting his jacket as his eyes found an onlooker. He simply jutted a thumb in the direction of the fleeting jester, “These guys, huh? No boundaries.”

Love Bites!

(monster!Vex anon) So. Secret magic society in the normal world AU. The twins are the primary tenders of a bar called the Echo Tree (not the owners, though) which tends to a primarily magical clientele. At a glance, the twins look like half-elves, with their slightly-off facial features and rounded-long ears, and everyone assumes that they just have distant fey ancestry. But. Anyone with magical expertise and a really good look will notice that Vex's braid is woven into complex binding forms [1]

[2] and that the beads in Vax’s hair have tiny runes etched into them. In this AU, Syldor isn’t an elf; he’s a creature more like Saundor, and the twins are actually plant-creatures the way that Vex would’ve become had she taken the deal! Their glamours are carefully constructed in the ways that please them most, and allow them to pass without too many second-glances in both human and magical society. But when Vax removes the right beads, or Vex lets down her hair… their eyes become solid,

[3] their skin becomes bark-like, their hair unwinds into a tangle of vines, and their features flatten into a mostly-smooth face with just a bump for a nose and a wide crack for a mouth, that opens to reveal a row of sharp teeth. Vax has long, thin, smooth leaves that rustle when he’s upset and grow thickest on his shoulders; Vex has rounder, jaggeder ones that bunch up behind her ears and sometimes put forth tiny blue blossoms when she’s particularly pleased. They do eachother’s hair every

[4] morning, to make sure it’s done exactly right, and keep backup beads and ribbons in case some get lost. So they know the rest of Vox Machina through the underground (Keyleth and Tibs they buy supplies through, Pike isn’t just a great healer but a part-time bouncer for the bar, mainly to hang out with Grog who works full-time, Scanlan of course performs there whenever he’s in town and is always ready to talk down any situation that gets out of hand; everyone drinks there on the regular.) The

[5] oddest addition to their little circle of friends is Percy, who just shows up one day and… well. It doesn’t take the stink of cold iron in every pore of his skin to spot a hunter; it’s more in the way he holds himself, the clothes he wears, the hand-built weapons on his belt. Hunters are something of a necessary discomfort, given that the human police can’t exactly be counted on to be able to hold a serial killer who can literally turn into mist, and usually the magic community just gives

[6] them a wide berth, but the twins aren’t going to turn away a customer, especially one who’s polite, tips well, and doesn’t seem to bother anyone else. And he’s charming, and joins in the jokes, and even helps get Keyleth home with them a couple of times when she’s too drunk and only one of the twins can slip away to carry her out. Not to mention, having a hunter on hand often ends a fight just as quickly as calling Grog in, so… just all-around, Percy is helpful. (There may or may not be a

[7] subplot where something gets broken, and Vex goes to a human repair shop and sorta accidentally stumbles across his day job? And it’s awkward, but also hilarious, because she’s used to seeing him in his “uniform,” with his coat and his hat and his button-up, and even though she can still feel the presence of that cold iron pistol somewhere nearby, seeing him in an actual STORE UNIFORM is ridiculous. And for him, well, it feels a bit like stripping away a bit of the mystery when you see the

[8] fey bartender you’ve been crushing on for the entire summer just out an about in jeans and a sweater, under the fluorescent lights of a computer shop, and no where near the secret magic-infused atmosphere of the bar you’ve always seen her in.) But the real key would be when one of his marks (I think the Briarwoods,) books a private dinner room at the bar, and Percy goes after them (already mentally apologizing to the twins and Grog, because this is going to make a MESS,) and they prove

[9] more than he can handle on his own. Vex sees the look on his face, the shift in his shoulders, and when he walks off, she waits a few moments before telling Vax to cover for her and follows. She moves as casually as she can to avoid drawing attention, but… we all know how much difference a few rounds can make; when she gets there, Percy is badly wounded, and the mark clearly has the upper hand should she engage. Her magic is weaker when its all bound up in her glamour, so after a few

[10] failed persuasion checks, seeing Percy loosing hit points by the second, Vex yanks the ribbon off her braid. The hair escapes in half a moment, unraveling like living thread as the softness falls away, and her true form is bared, and she may not be able to take the mark herself, but she basically gets a nat20 on her intimidation to tell them to beat it. Percy’s really out of it at this point, from magical impacts and loss of blood, and so she doesn’t bother even tucking the vines out of her

[11] out of her face before rushing to his side. She calls for Pike before preparing a healing spell, going through all the paramedic questions–“Do you know where you are? Do you know what happened? How many fingers am I holding up?”–but maybe it’s because Percy’s so out of it, or maybe it’s because he’s staring at her like she’s a goddess come to save him, but when she gets to “What’s your name?” she expects the nickname he’s been going by all this time; she doesn’t expect him to tell her his

[12] True Name. All of it. He slurs it slightly, but the sound of it still strikes straight through her, and honestly scares her because holy shit, Percy must be even worse off than she thought if he’s giving his True Name to what he knows to be a dangerous fey. And then she nurses him back to health, and gets a rash from all the iron dust and blackpowder on his clothes, and Vox Machina help Percy with his List issues, and eventually the twins get their own bar, but I really only have that one

[13–final ask] scene pinned down, and some world-building, so… *sigh* Just can’t seem to make the thing work. But yeah. That’s my monster!Vex AU. (Sorry for the wait on this last bit; apparently I can only send 12 messages in an hour.) (AND I’M SO GLAD YOU LIKE IT~!)

MY DUDE I LOVE IT i really hope you figure out whatever problems you’re having with not making it work because i would read all of this in a HEARTBEAT

i especially love that the twins are bound by their hair and that vex blossoms blue when she’s happy, because im just imagining percy doing something rather sweet and charming and vex’s ‘hair’ just. becoming a field of blue flowers.

i just?? i love archfey/fey/plant monster vex stuff and this is everything i love rolled into one


While I’m still technically employed at Universal, my hours have plummeted because of my adjusted schedule. I’m an epileptic 22 year old who’s finally getting treatment after fifteen years, but with my work and transportation conflicting (as I cannot drive) I’m in-between jobs as I look for something closer to home that isn’t such an burden to the people who drive me to and from work, which is currently an hour-and-a-half inconvenience for them. 

Treatment and tests are proving to be more expensive than originally anticipated, and between that and meds and bills, being out of work is not the ideal situation. So! 

All of my art commissions are now 50% off, including my Don’t Starve Commissions and my Otherkin/Sona Commissions. In addition to this, my Don’t Starve Major Arcana Tarot is also 25% off when ordered directly through me, with the price of domestic shipping included.

I also do pretty cheap Magic for Hire if anyone’s interested! 

If you like my art, I’m willing to discuss commissions other than what’s outlined in my commission posts. If you’re interested in any commissions or product, feel free to IM me or send me an ask through tumblr, or contact me at faerendipitous@gmail.com

I know art commissions aren’t everyone’s thing, but I’ll be grateful even just for a reblog. 

Thank, guys!! 


anonymous asked:

You said Tiberias Calore wears lifts in his shoes- but did u mean King Tib or Cal?? Or both? 🤔

It was an alternative fact, aka a ridiculous lie.

Hey, you know what was cute? 

That time in the Shopping and Shipping episode when Tiberius was really excited to talk to Gilmore

Or that time when he was so happy that Kashaw said his name right

Or when he had his intelligence dropped to one and he was still so happy to see his friends (and Scanlan was happy to have Tibs back to normal)

Or how he went out of his way to get a sweet little pet, and how he was always sure to feed Lockheed and teach them tricks

Or how he called Keyleth princess and they were both so sweet and awkward together

Guys, I really miss Tiberius
