What is Critical Role? I always see your posts about it but I have no clue what it is?

Short answer: Critical Role is a bunch of nerdy-ass voice actors getting together, rolling dice and playing Dungeons and Dragons, and it is amazing.

The long answer: Critical Role a live-streamed 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons game, played most Thursday nights on the Geek and Sundry Twitch channel (now also on Project Alpha and on Youtube), run by Matthew Mercer of voice acting fame (like seriously the man is in most video games) and a cast of other amazing voice actors including Laura Bailey, Liam O’Brian, Travis Willingham, Ashley Johnson (who sadly does not get to attend every week because she’s in New York filming Blind Spot), Sam Riegel, Marisha Ray, and Taliesin Jaffe. Occasionally they bring in guest stars, like anyone from Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day to Jon Heder. 

The game started about 5 years ago now, when a bunch of friends got together to play a Pathfinder one-shot for Liam’s birthday, and they just couldn’t stop playing.  Eventually Felicia asked them if they wanted to livestream it with G&S, they converted to 5e, and we all got to follow the misfits known as Vox Machina (see below) through their adventures in the lands of Tal’Dorei and beyond as they fought necromancers and dragons and saved the entire world of Exandria, a homebrewed world created by Matt himself (and Tal’Dorei has a campaign guide here if you’re interested!), and made me laugh and cry and scream along the way.

Look at these fucking nerds, I love them so much.

That exclamation up there might seem pretty dry, anon, and I apologize, but I don’t think I can really capture how amazing it is just to watch them play. Critical Role is as exhilarating as any scripted TV show, with arcs and highs and lows and beautiful character choices and perfectly timed narrative beats (comedic and otherwise), and the cast are all best friends and love each other so much, and you can just tell.

The tale of Vox Machina ended in about November of last year– and it broke down to about 151 episodes of about 4hrs each (which I know is very intimidating), but they have also been releasing the episodes as podcasts, which you can find wherever podcasts are posted. If you are brave enough to try, I recommend starting with episode 24: The Feast, which is when one of the best arcs of the show begins, or with episode 16. 

But while Vox Machina’s story is over, the show definitely isn’t. The cast has rolled up new characters that I already would die for, so if you are interested in finding out for yourself, you can jump in fresh with Episode One. Episode Two, which aired last Thursday, will be up on Monday afternoon. 

I hope this helps, dear, lovely Anon. <3 if you have any other questions, or do end up joining the rest of us nerds (collectively called Critters), my inbox is always open.

do you ever just get hit with a truckload of inspiration from reading a fic because????? i have

this is a gift for @adreamingsongbird!! THANK YOU FOR WRITING SUCH A BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING FIC!! and for answering my questions about their clothes lmaoo  

(you could read this beautiful fic here!! that’s right read it >>here<< and you should definitely read it right now at this moment because it’s great and i’m in love and did i mention that it’s beautiful???

so with the news about geoff taking a sabbatical, my brain did the “ridiculous headcanon” thing it does and imagined fake ah crew geoff getting burned out (”because organizing you assholes is like trying to herd a fucking swarm of hornets”) and deciding to go on vacation for a while to recharge

and geoff’s basically like “do not call me unless there is an emergency,” and for geoff an emergency consists of:

  • the actual, literal apocalypse
  • nothing else
  • do not call him

but geoff pretty quickly finds out that for the crew, an emergency can be:

  • “did you pack underwear” —jack
  • “i can’t find the remote” —gavin
  • “geoff please i can’t find it call me back” —gavin
  • “gavin and i are arguing about the probability of flipping three coins and the– geoff? hello? did you hang up on me?” —ryan
  • “ryan ended his murder break because of an argument with gavin and is trying to blow up everything in the tri-county area” —michael
  • “michael’s a fucking tattletale” —ryan
  • “i’m drunk and i wrote a rap about you here listen” —jeremy
  • “i’m drunk and jeremy wrote a rap about you and i beatboxed and it’s amazing please answer your phone” —lindsay
  • “i’m drunk and weepy and i miss you” —virtually everyone, on the same night
  • (“i’m sober and annoyed and please save me” —ray)

geoff bursts into the penthouse two weeks before he’s supposed to return and everybody’s basically like what the hell are you doing geoff you’re supposed to be relaxing and geoff has a conniption fit

How does Pidge deal with her period in space ?

I don’t know why I like this question so much but it’s amazing!!!! Answer: not well. She gets even crankier than usual and tends to sic the drones on Lance when he gets under her skin.

When I started to hear about reputation being even better than Red (aka my first born child), not to mention all of her other albums (*cough Speak Now cough*), I have to admit I was a little skeptical. I know I will always love Taylor’s new music, but could something actually be better than all of these other amazing albums?????

The answer is simple. YES. You guys…. reputation is going to knock your socks off. Honestly, I don’t know why that’s the phrase I chose to use, but please bear with me. BECAUSE ITS TRUE.

The album is absolutely UNBELIEVABLE. Every time Taylor pressed play on a new song, my heart was pounding out of my chest. During the songs I experienced so many different emotions and by the time the song was over, all I wanted to do was listen to it again. And again and again and again and again…. and again.

Taylor, you really have outdone yourself with this one. And thankfully each day that passes brings everyone closer to finally listening to this masterpiece!!!!!! I CANT WAIT!

People around like to headcanon that Keith used to have short hair at the Garrison, but here I'm with all the "I'll recognize that mullet anywhere." Keith had the mullet when he was at the Garrison.

EXACTLY!!!!!! He’s had his mullet since Garrison times and I love it. listen I’ve had this ask in my drafts for A G E S just to find the perfect screenshots that prove that his mullet is amazing and that it deserves more support than it gets,,, look at how great it looks when he’s moving:

I love his long bangs that always part perfectly for his eyes:

And I love the way his mullet curls upwards in the back, it looks so fluffy and soft,,,, sometimes it almost looks like an incomplete sunflower,,,,,,,,,,,,

I?? love his stupid mullet so much????? It makes no sense but it’s amazing.

anonymous asked:

please tell me more about crows. they are very interesting creatures


Crows are one of my favorite birds, ravens even more so. I just really like both of them. But crows, alright. Crows.

  • Crows will often mate and stay with their mate for most of their lives, separating at death. 
  • They’ll pick up sticks and rocks and drop them on predators, like “haha screw you”
  • Crows are very emotional and do, in fact, display these emotions. Like you can tell if they’re angry, happy, sad, confused, etc
  • They have an excellent memory. You know all those stories we see about crows delivering presents to people who are nice to them and visiting after migrations? They remember who is nice to them and pay them back. (I hope to be friends with a flock of crows someday.) 
  • On that note, they also remember who is mean to them, and they tell their crow families, so whatever you do do not be mean to a crow. It will come back to bite you. Maybe literally. At the very least it’ll scream when it sees you.
  • They can live for up to fourteen years in the wild. 
  • They use tools. 
  • They can solve puzzles and understand the concept of water displacement, meaning they can think in creative and abstract ways.
    • Unrelated, did you know that hummingbirds know what flowers they’ve already been to? Back to crows.
  • Oh, not only will they remember you and tell their flock, they will tell their children, and their children will tell their children, and their children will tell their children, and you get the point. 
    • In other words, they have a very complex language. They have to be able to describe you to other crows. It isn’t just screeching - it’s language.
  • If you kill a crow, the entire flock will change its migration pattern to avoid you. 
  • They steal food from each other. As a result, crows will pretend to hide their food in one place in the presence of another crow but later hide it somewhere else.
  • Sometimes they drop walnuts in front of moving cars so that they tires will crush the nut for them. They’ll memorize traffic patterns and everything.

Real quick some raven facts:

  • Ravens will, if they come across an animal (a dead one, they’re scavengers) that is too large for them to break down, mimic the sound of a wolf pack. This will bring wolves, who will tear apart most of the animal, leaving ravens with what they want - the leftovers. 
  • They can speak. :”Quoth the raven, Nevermore” is not just Poe personifying the bird. 
  • Like crows, they will remember you.
  • They have (I believe I read this somewhere) the largest brain to body ratio of any bird.
  • I have to get ready for work but let’s just finish this by saying corvids are very intelligent, amazing birds.

Soooooo, Whos the Big Spoon and whos the little Spoon? (is it Izuku as the big spoon protecting shoto and holding him close, or Shoto being the big spoon not wanting izuku leaving his side.)

Izuku: We don’t actually spoon too often. It‘s usually like this, but if Todoroki‘s had a particularly bad day with his father and he finally gets the chance to relax after a full day of stress and tension, it goes more like this:

Izuku: (I don’t mind, though. If anything, it‘s very sweet to know he can relax around me. That and his sleeping poses make for some amazing photographs.)
