but once it got into the adventure

anonymous asked:

Can I request Gyro mercilessly flirting with a tall and chubby s/o? Like she's strong in general but can't help but get shy at the slightest compliment? (Sending twice because I'm on mobile)

- Once Gyro has got an idea into his head, it’s hard for him to drop it. He’s the kind who keeps pulling out the joke until it’s long dead, will remember inside references from years ago and pull them out when you least expect it, and despite the fact he forgets people’s names he never forgets a birthday. 
- He’s impressed by her resilience and her mastery of her horse, how strong she seems throughout the Steel Ball Run. Gyro wants to win, but he’s already made a friend and he sees no reason why he can’t make another one - and so he does extend his friendship, and by extension, she falls into Gyro Zeppeli’s personality headfirst. 
- She’s not used to getting so much attention, especially of the romantic kind. Men in general tend to be a little intimidated by her stature, and she’s not the most self-confident in her body - so when Gyro winks and tells her how good she looks today, her face flushes pink and she wants to die where she stands. 
- Of course, seeing this kind of reaction is only going to spur him on more. He doesn’t get pleasure out of embarrassing people, but he does love knowing he has an effect on them; and here’s a physical one, on somebody he already thinks is so pretty and pleasant to be around– it just makes him want to make her blush so hard she gives up and kisses him. 
- So he carries on. He’s all winking and double entendres, looks of passion (at least, he thinks they’re looks of passion, whilst Johnny snorts under his breath) and attempts to crack jokes at lightspeed - and eventually, despite the fact every time he opens his mouth her face goes so red she thinks she’ll catch on fire, she kisses him just to shut him up. 

Why all of the Disney princesses are awesome

Snow White

- was a survivor of attempted murder, and was resilient to not let that horrid and traumatizing event bring her down or let it ruin her life

- was a victim of emotional abuse, and didn’t let the abuse get to her

- would save a baby bird from danger and make sure it found it’s parents

- knows how to hold a rocking party with friends

Cinderella

- survivor of emotional abuse from her stepmom and stepsisters for many years, and stayed kind towards others

- despite her family treating her so wrongly and poorly, she just wanted to spend a night with them and have fun with them, and just be like a normal family “ Prince Charming, who “ ?????

- she’s sassy as fuck “ Well I don’t want to interrupt their “music lesson “ during her stepsisters bad singing

- even though she had a short time to be at the ball, she was grateful for the opportunity anyways

Aurora

- Gives up her happiness, to perform her duty as a princess for her kingdom and her kingdom’s future and knows that she must do her job as a princess. That’s pretty brave and selfless.

- that gorgeous blonde curly hair !!!!

Ariel

- she’s the first Princess that goes forward to make her dreams come true, rather than just wishing, hoping and waiting.

- she’s adventurous, curious, loves to explore, learn about new things and new cultures and new world

- she’s the first Princess to save her love interest, but once, but twice

Belle

- different, odd and a misfit from the common crowd and gives no fucks

- “ Women shouldn’t read “ Well shut the fuck up, I’m going to do what I love and enjoy anyways.

- takes no bullshit. You are a asshole ? Got no time for that. She’s outtie.

- sees the good within people, but is also isn’t naive, she knows that some people are just plain monsters, through and through.

Jasmine

- will stand up for her rights, and won’t be pushed around

- is quick, sharp, intelligent and a fast learner

-wants to learn more about the outside world and her people

-if you try and lie to her or manipulate her or treat her like she’s a fool, she’s not having that shit

Pocahontas

-will fight for her people, her family, her world, her home, her culture

- she’s the first princess to save the day, not the guy, not a male sidekick, she’s the one the saves the day, while Snow had the Dwarfs, Cinderella had her mice friends, Aurora had Prince Phillip, Ariel had Eric, and Jasmine had Aladdin. ( Belle is debatable imo )

- loves the earth and nature and will protect it from harm

Mulan

- she saves China, I mean, come on

- she never gives up, no matter what. If she fails, she will just try even harder to succeed and will find a way on how can succeed.

- brave, determined, strong mentally and physically, a kind friend

-teaches girls that it’s okay if you haven’t found yourself yet- if you don’t give up, one day you will, and you will conquer

- pushes gender norms

- another female princess that saves the day, not her male love interest, or sidekicks, is also the first princess to defeat the villian in battle, like a previous male character like Phillip or Eric would

Tiana

- is hard-working, and never gives up on her dreams, and will work hard to get there

- teaches that dreams are done by sweating your butt off, giving up on fun sometimes, sometimes having to work more than one job, than just wishing and hoping, you have to take action, and make that dream happen

-ambitious and smart and realistic

- teaches that you shouldn’t take a short-cut, find a lazy option, cheat or gamble your way to success, the only to get there is through hard work and effort

- again,another badass princess that saves the day on her own

Rapunzel

- is kind to everybody

- is cheerful, positive, warm and supportive towards others, even people who seem “scary “, she knows inside, that we all have dreams

-is brave enough to step outside her  zone and new and strange places and territories

- anger her by harming one of her loved ones and she will fucking tear you apart

- a talented artist

Anna and Elsa

- teaches girls that family love is just as important than romance love, if not more so

- Anna goes through a abusive relationship and isn’t put off love forever, she learns her lesson, doesn’t let Hans bad treatment of her ruin her or let her become a toxic person, like he was, and moves on with a better man, and a healthier relationship

- Elsa goes through basically being locked up with lack of other human contact, fearing her powers and fearing what other people think of, to come out as better and stronger person

- Elsa teaches that sometimes its best not let what others think of you, and just say “ fuck it “ and just be yourself and be free

- Anna teaches the difference between a unhealthy relationship (whirlwind romance,quickly trusting people, getting into a deep relationship with somebody you don’t even know )  and healthy one ( somebody who gives you his jacket when you are cold, holds you close when you are scared, is worried about your well-being, getting to know somebody first before leaping in, somebody who asks for your consent before kissing you, will do anything to make sure you are safe and okay )

Moana

- will do anything for her island and people and make sure they’ll all okay

- her leadership skills are A++

- no “ you are forced to marry this boy so you can become his queen”, BS, Moana is the future leader

- is brave to fear the unknown waters, learn new skills, and battle monsters

- is understanding, and understands why somebody acts the way that they do

- is extremely independent


in short, they are all awesome, even the three originals.

HOW ABOUT THAT EPISODE 66 YO

I’ve been pretty busy lately so here’s a vent Taako I drew a few months ago that I never posted~ Back when the boys’ adventures were a lot less…heartbreaking…

so i should really write more than just taako and angus fics and i’m not even that into the whole eighth bird/angus being a member of the ipre idea but i can’t get the idea out of my head of taako meeting this kid on one of the planes they visit and somehow he ends up getting attached and teaching him magic and they can’t find the light and taako is fucking distressed because angus means more than dust to him now and he’s gonna die and it sucks and on the day the hunger comes taako brings angus on the ship with him. everyone tells taako that he won’t be able to stay but taako’s just like ‘i know okay but at least this way he’ll just stop existing and won’t have to be stabbed and killed alone and vored by that fucking thing!’ 

when they fly out of the plane taako’s just on the floor holding angus in his lap and telling him it’ll be okay even though they’re both fucking terrified and then everything resets and taako gets put back into his starting position and is a hair away from just breaking down when suddenly angus is still there because fucking bonds and that good power of friendship shit and it kinda knocks the ship on its ass for a bit but angus got fitted into the system from then on out 

afterwards magnus is just ‘okay, just so we’re on the same page here, taako has a kid now? like that’s just a thing that happened, taako adopted a child and has a son okay awesome’ and taako’s embarrassed as fuck and lup is just like ‘i love my new nephew so much’ 

My brother shared another great DnD story with me. 

So the adventurers had picked up a girl who’d caught cold, and as she was coughing some guy on the street offered her candy. Naturally, as they had been well trained by their parents, they refused. The guy apologized and clarified. “My name is Nicola Ricola,” he explained, “and these are my newly invented cough drops.” 

Since he’s just starting his business, he needs money, so he asks the adventuring team to help him raid an ancient city jampacked with treasure. Once, a long time ago, a king demanded he be buried in a huge pyramid + enormous city complex. He got a bunch of slaves to start building, but died partway through construction. They kept working, but the force of his greed was so great that even when they died they got up and kept working. So there’s this ancient city being constantly expanded and repaired by an army of dead. And of course it’s jampacked with loot.

So they raid the place, and as they’re headed out Nicola mentions in an aside that he’s glad that curse wasn’t true. They pressure him, but he just says something is supposed to happen to anyone who steals the treasure, but they’re fine. 

A while later, he contacts them again asking for protection duty. Something has been killing off other members of the expedition. They take shelter in a room and then hear something banging down the hallway toward them. The door flies open, and the king’s sarcophagus pounds into the room. It deflects all their attacks with its evil magic, until Nicola flings a cough drop at it. Then it turns and bounces away again, never to be seen again. Because nothing stops a coffin like Ricola.

I just have to make my peace with the fact that my brother is a better DM than I will ever be.

so last session i gave all my players magical items and they rolled for what properties they had.

Our cleric, for instance, got earings that protect her from critical hits, but makes it that she doesn’t trust bartenders when wearing them… said earnings were given to her by a bartender

and our Druid is a drider who has her girlfriend ride around on her back most of the time. And she ended up getting a ring that allows her to cast enlarge on herself once per day

and what she rolled as the downside is “when attuned to this item, you fall madly in love with the nearest person of compatible sexual orientation”

……which happened to be her girlfriend. She got a ring with the only downside being that she loves her girlfriend more.

Gender Adventures #14: We’ve Got Great Chemistry

Fun fact: chemistry is pretty much the only thing outside of discussions about gender where ‘cis’ and ‘trans’ are used as whole words as opposed to just prefixes for other words. As a trans chemistry student, this obviously opened up a lot of opportunities for my friends to make puns. I don’t remember who the first to make this joke was, but this comic features a cameo from the rad @zashford because she hasn’t been in this comic yet and she’s definitely made this kind of joke at least once (and she hella cute)

For anyone who is actually curious about the terminology used, the first paragraph here should give you enough, or feel free to message me if you want a full lecture on geometric isomerism

Dating Robert:

What I expected: Sexy, cool knife dad that will take me out on motorcycle rides and hot dates at 1 am.

What I got: My name is Robert Small. I’ve never believed in ghosts until I came face to face with one. So I set out on a quest to capture what I once saw onto video….With no big camera crews following us around, I am joined only by my fellow investigator Val and our equipment tech Mary Christiansen. The three of us will travel to the some of most highly active paranormal locations, where we will spend an entire night, being locked down from dusk until dawn….Raw…Extreme…These are our Ghost Adventures.

Matthew Mercer’s Raven Queen ™

I’ve been seeing a whole bunch of stuff being thrown around about the Raven Queen after the latest Talks Machina, mostly centering around the speech that could have happened if anyone in VM had tried to argue with the Raven Queen for Vax’s soul. For simplicity’s sake, just in case anyone hasn’t seen or read it, this is the speech Matt gave:

“Do you have idea how insignificant you are? You are the instruments of divinity. Everything you have accomplished is because we gave you the tools to accomplish it, for goals unforeseen to you that fit our needs and interests. You are nothing, and yet you come and beseech me this, after all I have done for you?”

And I get it, it’s incredibly rude! After everything VM has done, after everything they have bled for, struggled for, lived and died for, to call them insignificant at the moment of their greatest triumph? It’s a slap in the face right before she takes away someone who should have gotten the happy ending that everyone else was getting.

But I feel like maybe we’re forgetting a key element of the Raven Queen in the Critical Role setting.
