evak tangled au for your prompts?

this is probably not what you wanted but a proper au would take me forever so instead i wrote you a small snippet of what could be an evak tangled au, somewhere in the universe

“You said there’s a lost prince,” Even looks at Isak. “Was he handsome?”

“He was a baby,” Isak blinks. “There was no way to tell.”

Even thinks on this for a moment.

“Do you think he’d be handsome, now?”

Isak looks at Even, disbelieving. “Even, I don’t know, why would I know—why would I think about—”

Even interrupts him. “Do you find men attractive?”

Isak chokes on his fish. “Jesus.”

“Is that a man?” Even furrows his brows. “Is Jesus a man you find attractive?”

“Not unless I want to go to hell,” Isak quips. Even looks at him, expression more perplexed than before. Isak sighs loudly, eyes cast towards the night sky. Their surroundings are illuminated only by the light of the stars and the moon and the fire before them, one Isak had started expertly, after years of living on the run. “No, that’s not – it’s a form of expression,” he shifts his gaze downwards again, meets Even’s stunning blue. He still hasn’t gotten used to the intensity of them.

Even bites his bottom lip. Isak is careful to not follow the movement. “I think that I might be,” Even begins slowly. “I think that might be – wrong,” he finishes, looks at Isak in earnest.

Our mysterious picture from Moho House just got released and let’s take a closer look upon this candid scene and try to gather exactly what is going on here.

For all of us, the man above is a new character being introduced to the series, Nigel. He is played by Michael York, who has been a reoccurring famous voice actor to the show- you might know him best as the veterinarian Dr. Budgie who appeared as both in episodes Lisa the Veterinarian and Pork and Burns. Because of York’s occasional appearance, we won’t have any idea whether or not Nigel will be a one shot or reoccurring, but it is a good detail to keep in mind.

Nigel is explained by the synopsis that he and Mr. Burns wager whether or not he can break up the Simpsons. Yes, this sounds like bottom of the barrel plot scraping considering for Burns’ deviousness, marital affairs is something he never fools around with given his sacrosanct values despite his misanthropy. It seemed the writer shoved that detail to the side unless Nigel INSISTS upon it. Speaking of Nigel, from the synopsis, we can presume he is probably a friend or acquaintance of Burns because of how Monty is willing to toss something valuable at a bet, and Burns hasn’t been known to do that except only with friends and friendly rivals such as Aristotle Amadopolis and Rich Texan (who he shared more animosity with in The Seemingly Never Ending Story.)

As seen above in the picture, we see Nigel plant a kiss on Smithers, if not nearly throwing himself on Monty’s lackey. Now what can we gather from this snapshot? Well for one, Smithers’ body language. He is tossed into this situation, surprised obviously from his arcing eyebrows, similar to when Moe kissed him all of a sudden in Flaming Moe. However, Smithers is also leaning away which seems to indicate that it was also a violation of his personal space and unwanted. His bewilderment however seems to take the reigns, and whatever follows will certainly be towards Nigel.

That brings up another speculation - why is Nigel kissing him?

I can only think of a few things; this scene happens at the end of the episode where Nigel loses that bet with charisma and attractiveness on breaking up the Simpsons and decides to kiss Smithers to inflate his ego in desperation to see if he still has it.

This scene happens in the beginning when we are introduced to him and Monty and find out that Nigel is a gambler, a betting whore who would do anything for the thrill of the chase and financial payout (see what may be in his hand, it looks like pearls or some jewelry,) and he does it because Monty bets him (and maybe its a contest on who can kiss Smithers better?)

Another yet simple and innocuous point, those might be breath mints in his hand and Nigel is making an introduction as a famous Don Juan and Burns dares to test his ego.

Or scenario four: Nigel is a raging bisexual or gay and we are introduced to this detail only through him kissing Smithers (maybe as a bet,) which leaves the possibility that he might hit on Homer instead of Marge to fulfil this bet. Considering that there is another promo pic of Nigel seated next to Homer fresh from work or a work party and drinking at Moe’s Tavern (because under the coat we can see his work tie) this could very well be a possibility.

Whatever the case, there is another detail about this picture is how oddly framed it is for a promo pic, likely because it appears to obstruct something behind Smithers? The way the picture is cut, I wouldn’t be surprised if there is something going on that gives more detail to this scene, probably Mr. Burns standing near Smithers. Time can only tell whether or not this hypothesis is correct.

For now we can only wait for Smithers to be kissed by one ancient, suave billionaire this season.

Because the Italian army dug ditches when they took Verano Castle, which is the only siege His Highness has seen, so plainly that’s how it must be done, aye?”


“Och, aye,” I said.

It worked; he looked up at me and laughed, his eyes slanting half-shut with it.


“That’s a verra fair try, Sassenach,” he said. “What else can ye say?”


“Settle for the Lord’s Prayer in Gaelic, would you?” I asked.


“No,” he said, scattering sand across his dispatch. He got up, kissed me briefly, and reached for his coat. “But I’ll settle for some supper. Come along, Sassenach. We’ll find a nice, cozy tavern and I’ll teach you a lot of things ye mustn’t say in public. They’re all fresh in my mind.

Prompt #1. 'Are you drunk?' for Vax/Percy if you're still doing it? Just want to say how much I love everything you write as well. They really brighten bad days!

1. “Are you drunk?”

“Ah, Vax’ildan. How are you on this fine evening?”

“Percy. I thought you were working.”

“Well,” says Percy with a wide smile, light glittering off his glasses so Vax cannot see what he is thinking, and it unsettles him to be wrong footed, “I was. And now, I’m not.”

anonymous asked:

Lee watched as people worked to decorate the tree in the tavern. Lee noticed a red haired woman with the star for the top. He got up and walked over. "I'm not saying that you can't reach the top of the tree to put on the star...but you could just ask for help."

The redhead had a small ladder nearby, heeding the man’s words but she only shook her head. “I can get that star up there just fine! Just watch me!” She smiled as she went to the ladder and climbed it. Her height definitely a disadvantage as even at the top, she couldn’t reach it. Making her stand on her tip toes. 

“..Cooooome ooooon, just a little…more…”

okay i unsurprisingly got this ask twice so i’m gonna answer ~half of ‘em here and do the other half for the other ask! :D

  • Who would win tickle wars:

Bull would win, physically, grabbing Dorian around his chest with one arm, locking Dorian’s own arms at his side, while Bull makes him cry laughing. Dorian can give as good as he gets though, and does, particularly once Bull’s comfortable with his magic – arcing electricity across Bull’s stomach while Bull wraps his hands under the headboard and hisses under his breath.

  • Who would draw pictures of the other in their sketchbook:

Dorian writes in the margins of books he’s underwhelmed by, critiques about the author and their research techniques (or lack thereof), notes about books that are better representatives of the argument. He draws, too, sometimes – foolish little doodles that have no talent behind them: Mother Giselle whining about the wicked vint, a strangled crow, Brother Genitivi looking devastatingly unimpressed. He has a series of the Iron Bull… from the unflattering, messy sketches in the first books he lay his hands on, to the more recent attempts to capture the design on his eyepatch, the width of his back, the curve of his smile.

  • Who would holds hands while walking:

Bull leaves his hands hanging loose at his sides, fingers within brushing distance of Dorian’s, and Dorian eventually curves his hand around three of Bull’s fingers, his hold weak at first – easy to pull away, to not be holding hands – and then strengthening over the weeks, the months, until Dorian knocks his knuckles against Bull’s hand and Bull catches his hand up in his grip.

dont ship irl people, make rpg parties out of irl people

John Cena: Lawful Good Paladin. Defacto leader of the group through experience and combat prowess. High Strength, Constitution and Charisma. His massive ego sometimes drags the party into unfavorable situations. His prized possession is a single Gauntlet of Invisibility that can be activated, granting the wearer Greater Invisibility(still classified as illusion spell and thus utilizes both verbal and somatic components in the form of the user waving his or her hand and repeating “You can’t see me.”) Often a target by up-and-coming adventurers looking to prove themselves by besting him, yet few have had any success.

Guy Fieri: Chaotic Neutral Cleric. Oddball of the group. Is always tinkering with his Herbalism Kit and is borderline obsessed with not the potency of his potions, but the taste and texture. Carries Alchemist’s Fire on him 24/7 and is adamant about it only being used for brewing or cooking. High Wisdom and Charisma but low Constitution, needing to eat almost twice as often as the other party members. Can often get good deals at taverns, if not free food/drink entirely. He is only using the group to reach his “Town of Flavoure.”

Keanu Reeves: ??? alignment Rogue. Doesn’t talk much. Incredibly gifted in stealth, acrobatics and perception. Exceptionally high Dexterity, plus good Wisdom and Intelligence to boot. Never seen without his Thieves’ Tools and Poisoner’s Kit. He prefers to work alone, yet is needlessly selfless and kindhearted when it comes to the others’ needs. The mayor of the town has the guards confiscate your goods unlawfully? You might find them back in your backpack the next morning. With little to his name but his miscellaneous tools and a pair of shaded glasses granting enhanced darkvision, most of his share of the loot goes toward aiding his sick sister back home.

Jack Nicholson: Neutral Evil Warlock. Uses the alias “Johnny” in unfriendly territory. Much to the dismay of Keanu, never stays quiet for long and always “loves a good chit-chat.” Astronomically high Charisma and Wisdom plus his skill in deception allow him to wrap anybody around his finger. He always seems to know when someone is lying to the group, and can often turn it right back around on them. Prestidigitation is another one of his specialties, holding magic shows for coin in towns they visit. While not a strong combatant, his flashy illusions can cause great confusion among enemies.
