anyway if you think “gay people” are a valid trigger and putting “#lesbians” or something along those lines on your blacklist (especially when paired with shit like “pda” and “allosexuality” like lets be fucking real here, youre not “triggered” by gay people existing, youre just an ugly bigot) is okay, feel free to hit that unfollow + block button
i was rewatching battle tendency and got to that scene where joseph yelled goodbye to suzie before they left for switzerland and i started wondering what kind of conversation joseph had with caesar to get him to turn the car around (i mean they had already started to drive off) and this is my theory
Mom, listen, I haven’t been together with Topanga for 22 years but we have been together for 16. Ok, that’s a lot longer than most couples have been together. I mean, when we were born you told me that we used to take walks in our strollers together around the block. When we were 2, we were best friends. I mean I, I knew everything about this girl. I knew her favorite color. I knew her favorite food. Then we got to be 6 and Eric made fun of me because it wasn’t cool to have a best friend that’s a girl, or even know a girl […] Then when I was 13, Mom, she put me up against my locker, she kissed me. I mean she, she gave me my first kiss. She taught me how to dance. She always was talking about these crazy things and I never understood a word she said, all I understood was that she was the girl I sat up every night thinking about. And when I’m with her I feel happy to be alive. Like I can do anything. Even talk to you like this. So that’s, that’s what I think is love Mom. When I’m better because she’s here. And now she won’t be. So I’m finished.
What if The Cube represented the tight knit family?
In the beginning it started out intact. As the show progressed and we learn about Marvin, the cast kept taking pieces out of it and rearranging it, representing the fact that this family was changing and being torn apart by everything.
At the opening of act 2 the blocks were all assembled, then as Marvin sings “it’s about time” they collapsed and the cast tried to fix them so they would be comfortable sitting around the blocks. Maybe this represents that the family doesn’t have to be perfect, that everyone had to make their own little tweaks in order for it to work out for everyone. That the family needed to experience breaking before it could be “fixed”.
Then as Whizzer dies, he turns his back on the audience and walks toward the back of the stage as two parts of the cube come together and close in front of him, forming the same cube from the beginning of the show. Mendel and Jason later take out a single block which becomes Whizzer’s headstone.
So now we have the same cube, but with a single piece missing. Whizzer’s death brought the family together; Trina and Marvin, Marvin and Mendel, Charlotte and Cordelia with the rest of the family. They were finally able to support and love each other unconditionally, but at the price of Whizzer. Most importantly, they all felt the loss. Every person mourned Whizzer’s death, and this tight-knit family was essentially brought together through the loss of a very important person in that family.
Whizzer is the reason everyone became so close, the reason The Cube was a cube again by the end of the show, BUT ALSO the reason why the last time you see the cube it’s missing a single piece. Whizzer is that piece that everyone lost that day. Although the family is together they will never be complete.
I’ve been a real estate broker in Chicago for nearly 20 years. I started at a very small independent brokerage. It was my first week there when the broker/owner gave me a lead. He was older and wasn’t in very good health, so he passed a lot of his leads to his agents.
One of the broker’s friends passed away and the friend’s son wanted to sell the house. I call the son who tells me he’s known the broker for 30-plus years and how close their families were. He seems like a really nice guy. I go over and check out the house. I work up a gorgeous comparative market analysis. I have other brokers check my numbers (I was new and wanted to do a perfect job for my new client). I rehearse my presentation, have my stuff professionally printed, prepare for any possible questions, have responses ready for objections, and I head out.
I dazzle this guy with my presentation. He likes the $135,000 list price I recommended. He’s fine with the commission. He has no objections, but he asks me to give him 2 months to clean out the house, give his siblings a chance to go through everything and then repaint.

Hey look at you, kid! Now in a fandom that has a
confirmed, canon, aro ace character.
I bet you are ready to jump into that trash pile
of a TV show now! Wait, the writers are queer baiting both the bi, ace, and
aromantic community? Well, 2017 is a series of unfortunate events, isn’t it?
You might not know me, I pre-date “THE
DISCOURSE” and I know all too well both who keeps certain fandoms alive
and who tries to come in to bully binary breakers. If you (luckily) missed out
Dragon Age bull shit because you were happily reading comics, I’m here to help.
To prevent assholes from pissing on your
enjoyment I suggest the following. Aphobes know what they are doing. This isn’t
years ago, where you kindly explain their bigotry, or aggressively point out all
the -isms they are doing. They’ve doxed people, they’ve suicide baited, they’ve
stalked, so on, and so on. This is 2017. It’s nazi punching season, don’t go
into anything thinking you can convince them off their bigoted rock.
If you want to engage, do so. But please mind
the emotional wear. If you were using the comics or the show as escapism, don’t
pick this battle with them. There are so many battles to be had. I’m not here
to demand anything, but I am here to tell you how to avoid the thing you love
being painfully and forcefully ruined on you.
Step 1: No platform the assholes
Don’t engage. They want your attention. They like seeing people hurt. They are
in the ace positivity tags because they want to attack you.
Step 2: Block the assholes Here’s a
list. I’m normally the last to block people, but those
who uphold oppressive systems attack from all sides. You don’t owe your
attention to anyone. It’s far too easy to see 50 shades of bullshit by
Step 3: Block nasty anons If they came into your ask box, they are asking directly for your attention. Deny them it. Tumblr lets you
block anons. Do so.
Step 4: Remember that Jughead is canonically aro
ace. They are the ones with the theories. They are the ones without confirmation.
They are the ones ripping labels off queer characters to apply their own. Fuck
what they say, this character is yours. This isn’t to embolden you, this is a
reminder not to fight those who have no power in this situation. If you are in
a fighting mood, attack systems, not their people.
Context: So this is the same Mae Gjallarfjall who seduced the pirate captain on the first game. In a later session, we have arrived at the capital of Fountland, which will serve as our base of operations for most of the campaign. The party decided to run some sidequests to make some cash and possibly find some loot. So we pick two bounties that are the opposite of each other. One is a dude who wants help fighting off an army of 5000 people, and the other is the army of 5000 looking for more help. Our way of completing both was… unusual.
DM: So, you guys arrive at the camp of five thousand men. One of them turns to you guys and asks “Who the fuck are you?”
Me (OOC): I pull out the job poster and tell him I’m looking for his leader.
DM: He points you the right way and wishes you luck.
Me (OOC): We continue on to the tent and I walk in without announcing myself.
DM: You find Meb in her tent, barely clothed and sitting on a throne made of men. She looks at you as you approach.
Me (OOC): I roll Persuasion to sway my hips seductively as I continue forward. *rolls +2 and ties Meb’s Initiative check*
DM: She raises an eyebrow at you and smiles. She greets you and demands that you state your business.
Me: *holding up her Help Wanted poster* I came to see about your job offer. You have five thousand men at your disposal against a single enemy, and yet you cannot best him? Why?
DM (as Meb): Ah, yes, I and my… rival, shall we say, have a contract in place. I’m only allowed to send one soldier per day.
Me: And for what ends?
DM (as Meb): To steal a cow.
Me: What’s so special about this cow? Can’t you just buy it from him? If you have the money for an army, surely you can buy a cow.
DM (as Meb): It’s a really nice cow. And he won’t sell it to me.
Me: Well, if you haven’t already sent your soldier for the day, I’ll go next and end this whole feud.
DM (as Meb): I like the sound of that. For now, find yourself a tent and rest up for the night. He’s tougher than you may think.
The rest of the party salutes and turns to leave.
Me (OOC): As I turn and walk out, I roll Persuasion again to sway my hips. *Rolls +3 and successfully seduces Meb*
DM (as Meb): Except you. *pointing at me* You stay. You’ve caught my eye… What’s your name, hun?
Me: Name’s Mae Gjallarfjall. Pleased to make your acquaintance.
DM (as Meb): Oh, we’re going to be far more than mere “acquaintances.“ (OOC): Roll Initiative.
Me (OOC): *critfail*
DM to me: You fail to notice her grab a whip from her throne as she steps towards you.
The rest of the party, meanwhile, comes up with a plan to con Meb by disguising Paladin’s horse as the beautiful cow. In the morning, McCooly (the dude with the cow) would feign loss and run away with the real cow, giving the horse to Meb as per the feud contract. I, however, was getting laid, so I missed all of this.
DM: It is morning! Cocka-doodle-doo! The cow says "Moo!” McCooly is waiting in his usual spot just between his ranch and Meb’s camp. Mae, you wake up very sore but strangely refreshed.
Me: Welp, time to take care of this job. (OOC): Doot doot doot. I head out to where McCooly is.
DM: He charges you with a very predictable path at a very slow speed, and winks at you. Initiative.
Me: *+2 Initiative, +3 Block*
DM: You successfully block. He says “Oh no, you are so fast! How did you ever see my attack coming?”
Me (OOC): I punch him right in the face with Storm Fist. *Rolls +2 for contact and +5 for damage, fail the stun chance, but land the cooldown reset*
DM: He looks at you funny and whispers at you “What are you doing, you’re supposed to go easy!” He then swings his spear at you again. It is very easy to read.
Me (OOC): *+1 Initiative* I notice, and +2 Block.
DM: You block again, and he says “Well, I guess I don’t have to hold back either.” He’s trying to shiv you with the spear. Initiative.
Me (OOC): *Same rolls as lats time.*
DM: You do NOT block, and you get shivved for 7 damage.
Me (OOC): That’s 3 after armor, I take it as HP. My turn?
Me (OOC): I’m going to poke him right under the jaw in that soft spot between the bone.
DM: I guess that counts as Bare Knuckle. Roll.
Me: *connects and does 5 damage* And now, I spend a fate chip to instantly reset the cooldown of Fist of Havoc, and I’m Smashing. *rolls 36 damage*
DM: …aw… why? You killed McCooly. He’s like, the coolest NPC ever, man.
Me (OOC): Afterwards I roll First Aid to keep him from being completely dead.
DM: So after he wakes up, he shakes your hand and compliments your strength, and hands you 90 gold to split between the three of you. He then takes the fake cow over to Meb and hands it over. Meb then tosses you an additional 90 gold to split, and blows a kiss at Mae.
