My d&d adventure last Sunday ended with the 8 of us fighting a beholder. Having a party that is all melee users and magic no longer working we had no way of hitting it. The Rogue with spider climb and monk repeatedly ran up the wall and jumped onto its back to kill the thing. Creating the funniest way to defeat a beholder.

Nice! Wow 8 people is a big game - your DM is pretty awesome! First time my party fought a beholder was pretty epic as well, but it was deceptively easy to us at the time. Thanks for sharing!! Love hearing about rogue shenanigans!

I just wanted to say that I have a shortcut on my desktop/phone for your Archivrofourown page that I check daily. That's HOW obsessed I am with your works. The last chapter was so full of emotions... and had so much feelings into it I could like feel the fire and Jack's fear and his need to be praised by the Tsar. I love everything you write, it's so so beautiful and interesting. You made me love english (I'm Italian) and I improved so much thanks to you. Thanks for everything, Pia Love you!!

Okay but seriously anyone learning English better because of my writing like oh my god - and also, I appreciate this since I’ve been trying to learn German (badly) for a few years now and also Italian (very badly, I can’t roll my R’s despite 2 years of trying and about 100 Youtube ‘how to’ videos, apparently some tongues just can’t do it, which is infuriating, the accent matters!) and like, yeah, I just have a lot of respect for that process and just dkljfasdfa I’m glad my writing could help in whatever capacity it did. I’m sorry that some of it was irrelevant epic fantasy words but if you want I can recommend other epic fantasy books that will use those words too. ;) (Anything by Robin Hobb or Cecilia Dart-Thornton).

And so glad you’re enjoying the writing! I’m on like this five day writing break atm (because I hit my monthly wordcount of 25k, which means mandatory five day break and honestly it’s driving me crazy because all I want to do is write more lol).

Recently there's been some discourse going around the HTTYD fandom about the times Astrid has playfully punched Hiccup. Some see it as abuse, while others don't. I don't see it as abusive since she doesn't do it with the intent of hurting him and Hiccup knows that. It's just playful and neither of them see it as malicious. That's how it looks to me anyway, but I was wondering what your take on it is.

Check out this link for my long analysis on the topic of Hiccstrid and abuse. My statement is that Hiccstrid is clearly not abusive.

It is to note that abuse is not defined by intent. Someone can be abused regardless of what the abuser intends; what makes abuse abuse is that there is a victim. It’s also to note that many individuals who have been abused (including myself, back in the day, when I was in an abusive relationship) try to deny that this is abuse, or might not want to see it as abuse. But you are right - what Astrid is doing is playful, Hiccup knows it, and he’s not emotionally impacted negatively by her actions. The key is that neither Hiccup nor Astrid feel that her little punches are abusive *and* no one is negatively psychologically impacted by this action. Contrarily, they live in an extremely functional, supportive relationship.

Astrid never crosses any boundaries when she gives her “punches.” Though Hiccup gets a little irritated every once in a while, there is no indication she crosses any lines when she acts this way. Astrid’s “punches” are just as abusive as if I decide I want to pull a harmless prank on a friend that makes them a little bit irritated once they’re pranked, but it’s understood within our friendship that I can still prank them. They could prank me back, I might grumble a bit, but I won’t have any qualms with what they did either. It’s within the bounds of our friendship that we mutually know we can get back and forth at each other. Hiccup and Astrid live in a mutual understanding that what she’s doing is okay, not off-limits. Hiccup is not emotionally screwed up by what Astrid is doing, he’s not asking her to stop, but on the contrary he says at the end of HTTYD that, “I could get used to this.” These two are at a mutual understanding that little teasing punches are okay. There are even instances in which Astrid gives her little friendly punch and Hiccup just smiles back at her (ex: end of Heather Report Part 2). This definitely isn’t abuse.

And again, to reiterate, Hiccstrid demonstrates signs again and again of a healthy relationship. They tease one another and laugh with carefree spirits, able to relax and enjoy themselves around one another. They listen to one another’s struggles and provide support when needed. Astrid encourages Hiccup when he loses Toothless in the first movie; Hiccup encourages Astrid when she momentarily loses her sight in Blindsided. They are able to enjoy company with one another and relate to one another deeply through both happy and challenging times. This is a stable relationship. This is a good relationship. This is a relationship that is founded on trust, mutual understanding, love, dedication, loyalty, and happiness.

I do encourage everyone who is not triggered by abuse topics to read the full link. It’s a much more thorough and complete response, going into everything from psychological traits of abusers, psychological traits of victims, and every bit of evidence we could see for/against abuse. It tackles many of the common arguments I’ve heard from attempted abuse claims, and points out where I find these arguments flawed. I talk about Astrid’s actions in the Cove (which, to note, are before they enter a relationship), her actions during Riders and Defenders of Berk, and up to How to Train Your Dragon 2. So check out that analysis! I hope it helps! Take care and have a wonderful day.

anonymous asked:

toothless seems to get pretty empathetic and concerned when hiccup loses his leg or sees him without it, like when hiccup is scatching him under the chin in midnight scrum episode and he looks down at his leg and notices its not there seems concerned, another moment would be in zippleback experience after hiccup and toothless fall because of barf and belch knocking them down accidently, after they fall hiccup shows toothless his deformed peg leg and T seems disappointed, thoughts?

Toothless seems to demonstrate sadness the first time he realizes Hiccup has lost a leg. 

And when Hiccup struggles to walk on his new prosthetic limb, Toothless is there to help him move.

Toothless is capable of understanding what is going on with Hiccup’s missing limb struggle. Toothless lost his ability to fly after his left tail fin was injured. When he sees Hiccup with a missing body part, Toothless can understand; they both have lost mobility. And here we see reciprocity: Hiccup helped Toothless fly, and here now Toothless helps Hiccup walk.

It would have been a long, slow, painful process for Hiccup to acclimate to his peg leg. Just like it took a long time to figure out how to get Toothless to fly again, Hiccup with his now-lost-limb has to readjust to basic life tasks. Toothless would have been there to witness all of it: the pain in Hiccup’s leg, the slips and falls, the ongoing struggle to return to mobility. Indeed by GOTNF, we see that Toothless is quick to catch Hiccup again: the dragon has become accustomed to being in this role of support.

So even when Hiccup becomes very adept on his peg leg, Toothless still understands why it’s a sensitive issue. Toothless will be concerned when he sees Hiccup vulnerable without his peg leg in RTTE times. It’s because Toothless has lived it: both in his own life, and in trying to help Hiccup live his.
