and i'm less sure i actually like it now

  • Mom: Honey, come here please!
  • Me: Yeah?
  • Mom: *Gestures to the home page of YouTube on AppleTV*
  • Me: Oh fuck.
  • Mom's boyfriend Brent: Ahh, not too fond of the male gender huh?
  • Me: Uhm...
  • Brent: Relax kid, I'm not here to judge like a homophobic asshole. However, I'm probably a horrible dad since I placed bets on whether my daughter had a girlfriend or not. When she came out I told her about it, but boy was her reaction priceless! Totally worth it.
  • Mom: We're okay with this, but I don't need your younger siblings and cousins to be watching these videos just yet. There's no doubt that they're constantly curious and will click on anything that piques their interests.
  • Little brother: But the gay side of YouTube is the best side of YouTube. Tyler Oakley is the best person ever! So is Troye, Connor, Joey, and everyone else.
  • Little sister: Stevie & Ally are way too cute! Also the Gay Women Channel are hilarious!
  • Me: In my defense, I didn't tell them about these people or encourage them whatsoever to watch them.
  • Mom: *Sighs and shakes head*
  • Brent: A lot of Anna Kendrick and Brittany Snow videos are popping up. I will never be able to watch those Pitch Perfect movies ever again without my Bechloe goggles on.
  • Me: I like you.
  • Brent: If you like me now, you'll love me soon enough. Your mom told me that you're obsessed with that lesbian vampire web series. Well since she says she doesn't have the time to watch it. How about we binge watch it right now?
  • Me: You my friend, are going to regret this.
  • Brent: I sat down and watched all of Faking It for my daughter's sake. I'm sure I can handle 72 episodes that are less than 6 minutes long.
  • Me: Well actually 84 episodes because there's season 1, 2, and 0.
  • Brent: What does this fandom do with their lives?
  • Me: Don't ask that question or else I'll be dragging you down this garbage chute with me.
  • Little sister: Sin. That's all that fandom ever does.
  • Brent: ...
  • Mom: ...
  • Little brother: ...
  • Me: No clue what she's talking about.

Description: You’re exhausted and desperate for a second of sleep, but once Bodhi starts kissing you, the need to rest is the last thing on your mind.

You don’t know what time it is, but you’re tired.

He’s finally with you, in bed underneath the covers and in your arms. Bodhi’s head is on your chest, arm lazily slung over your middle and you can’t help but let your fingers run through his hair, fingertips delicately running against his shaved undercut and he hums sleepily at the affectionate touch.

“You like that?”

I’m just slowly getting increasingly salty about like… how kotfe could have been? good? like sure space fantasy empire out of nowhere is always gonna be jarring but like it’d be possible to muscle it in with the rest of the canon less abruptly, and it’s not like “and suddenly revanite conspiracy!” was. much less sudden

but it’s like this… tragic example of how completely haphazard and shoddy the writing actually is because for a little while it carries itself on shock value and momentum and “uh what is happening” and hitting the right basic emotional cues and then it just… drops literally everything to sell its plot, and sacrifices all of the game’s main draws - the engaging and varied class storylines, the companions, the attempts to portray some kind of nuance in an otherwise constantly black and white conflict - for the sake of the plot. and at first, I was… more or less grudgingly okay with it because I was invested in my character and wanted to at least get a chance to fuck up valkorion for good

(I will admit I came into the expansions extremely late. kotet had just dropped when I got back into swtor and reached the end of the vanilla game so I lack the completely justifiable salt over “your choices will matter!”) 

but eventually “oh vette will come back and lana is around” became… a superficial draw at best, because getting your old companions back meant one good cutscene and then just the aesthetic choice of who you want following you around, and lana and theron both became washed out copies of their original personalities to be steadier mainstays for the commander and the plot’s railroading just continued to get worse and more blatant.

the new characters wouldn’t even be bad, if the plot let you call them out or interact with them in any kind of consistent manner??? I liked koth, felt for senya’s situation, wanted more insight into vitiate as valkorion and… pitied arcann and vaylin, but none of that matters because koth disappears from the plot in kotet, zakuul gets served to you on a destined platter no matter what and arcann and vaylin are As Villainous as the plot demands (including the extremely lopsided option of having a redeemed arcann while you have to use vaylin’s trauma against her and kill her No Matter What) 

it didn’t have to be this way!!! I’m firmly of the opinion that like… a lot of the base concepts weren’t awful and could be salvaged but it feels like every time there was a choice, they went with the blandest and most restricting option instead and just

ughhhh

prompt: sid/geno h/c

((I just couldn’t get myself to write actual current injury h/c sorry so this is fluffier and a much more minor injury set in my college!AU, hope you still like it!))

Sid’s bleeding and pretty sure he chipped a tooth but he couldn’t care less right now. The second the stick connected with his face he knew there’d be a problem, and not because of any injury. No, because of his 6’3”, 200lb overprotective Russian boyfriend. He’s back on his feet in a moment, pressing one hand to his face to staunch the blood and looking around wildly.

“Geno!” He sprints across the ice, glad to see his yell stopped Geno while he was still just yelling and looming menacingly.

“Sid, go to bench, you bleeding,” Geno frowns as Sid gets close, waving a hand towards where their coach and trainer are hovering anxiously.

“Don’t fight,” Sid says, totally ignoring him and grabbing a fistful of his jersey, forcibly yanking him away from the other player, who looks at Sid like he just saved his life. “You’ll get suspended, G, this is college hockey.”

“You bleeding,” Geno repeats, shaking his head. He’s never been able to say no to Sid though, and Sid knows it, so he pulls Geno back to the bench with him and Geno goes without complaint.

First off, it looks like Ragnar set Floki up for defeat and ruin. But why would Ragnar risk so many lives and such an enormous loss just to get back (passive-aggressively) at Floki? That seems foolish and cruel in ways that Ragnar usually isn’t. (He can be cruel, but there’s almost always a reason for it. Surely there are less expensive ways to deal with Floki.)” (forbes)

It must be so hard to understand this show with your heteronormativity goggles on… Actually, I’m pretty sure Vikings would make zero sense right now if I wasn’t shipping Athelnar/Ragelstan.

e-s-a-c  asked:

I think it's because Thedas didn't know what to make of the new Inquisition, like, they knew more or less what the previous one was and did, but that's it, lost history, maybe they thought "hey, that super powerful force is back, isn't it little now, well who cares let's have them as friends" (orlesians, I'm looking at you) - but now they finally see the real extensions of our deals, and of course are afraid. That's just what I thought of it, though...:D

Still feels like this reaction is…a little late.

I’m actually still not sure why the organisation is named “the Inquisition”, if it’s supposedly has little to do with that old Inquisition that, you know, hunted down heretics and apostates, and is not the Chantry’s branch anymore? I’m surprised that everyone, the Chantry itself included, lets it slide, even though you grow very fast and stick your nose everywhere. 

Josephine says that the Chantry proclaimed you and everyone who supports you “heretics”, but her words are the only indication of it actually happening. We all know what the Chantry does to “heretics” (cough Exalted Marches cough) and it often takes much smaller things to piss them off. They purged an entire Rivaini Circle for the magical tradition of their lands, and I’m supposed to believe they’ll let someone calling themselves “the Herald of Andraste” slide? Sure, without templars they don’t have as much military power as they used to, but I have a hard time believing that they would let anything like that slide so easily. There’s a huge rival organization growing under their nose that supposedly has nothing to do with them and acts without their approval, and they’re so chill about it?

And it’s just the most obvious example, claiming lands and the local royalty being pretty chill about it too is pretty weird too. 

But the problem is not just that it’s two years late, their concerns are not misplaced at all, if you ask me? I admit, I rushed through the game and I’m simply not aware of the many details that could be crucial, but I don’t remember the problem of the Inquisition’s purpose in the future being properly addressed in the main game. They will only be addressing it in a future DLC after a two-years timeskip, and it just leaves you wondering what the hell the Inquisition was doing for these years, with Cory defeated and all that? What is their purpose, what are they doing with all that power and lands they claimed? 

I mean, I want to sympathize with the Inquisitor’s anger, but the main game didn’t make it easy. You’re not exactly gathering armies and winning people’s favour, it all happens automatically and there’s no way you can lose. Like, if you’re not gathering enough support at the Winter Palace, you’re just getting a “Game Over” slider and have to try again. If you ask me, it would be nicer if you actually could fail a mission, and later on you just have to get by without the support of a certain group. Hard, but managable, you just have to find another way. Instead, you suffer little to no story consequences for your choices, you never have to deal with your soldiers morale or anything of the sort. Everyone loves you, praises you, brings everything to you on a silver platter and allows you to decide whatever the fuck you want. I don’t really believe I’ll actually get to decide the Inquisition’s fate at this point, my only option will probably getting back into everyone’s good graces.

I mean holy shit, Dragon Age Awakening was just an addon to Origins, but it did a better job at showing how hard it is to manage something you’re in charge of. And it was just one relatively small area, tiny compared to the giant the Inquisition is, and there were still unhappy commoners, unhappy nobles and a number of other things you had to take care of if you want a good ending.

And now when it ends, when it suddenly becomes challenging to win people’s favour and THEY WON’T LET ME HAVE MY POWER, the Inquisitor throws a fit and stabs a table. It’s good that we finally have such a moment, but it’s kind of late, and because of how the main game was written, it’s a little hard to sympathize with.
