Watching the gradual escalation of Roosterteeth’s pranking is fascinating. It starts with simple things like “Michael puts wet bread on Gavin’s desk” or “Gavin burns down a minecraft house”.
Then came the more advanced pranks, Ryan making Gavin’s desk vibrate, everyone changing Ryan’s gamertag.
And now we are at a point where the achievement hunters built a complex apparatus to raise Jeremy’s desk up to the ceiling, and Blaine flew Burnie and Chris out to LA for a fake investment meeting just so Blaine could make Chris think he was in the middle of a government raid on a crime lords mansion.
On 8 March, 1921, the battered body of a young boy aged between five to seven was discovered floating in pond in Waukesha, Wisconsin. He had been bludgeoned to death before being dumped in the pond. It was theorised that he could have been in the pond for a number of months before being found. He was wearing expensive clothing which indicated that he may have come from an affluent background. He became known as “Little Lord Fauntleroy.” Despite coming from a seemingly wealthy background, nobody ever claimed his body. He was displayed at a local funeral home and a $1000 reward was offered to anybody who could identify him but this failed to generate any information and his true identity, or why he was brutally murdered, remains unknown.
I have fake contacts and dyed hair and I've changed my name 300 times just so the Moriyamas and my dangerous crime lord father couldn't track me down. I chose my town of residence in order to increase my chance of survival and I carry enough money on me so that I'll be able to run any time I want. I'm quitting exy the second it gets too dangerous I gotta watch my back

Griselda Blanco, also known as ‘The Cocaine Godmother’, was one of the pioneers of Colombia’s cocaine trade industry. Standing only 5 feet tall, she was a drug-lord of the Medellín cartel during the 1970’s and 1980’s. She worked to push cocaine from Colombia into the U.S. targeting New York, Southern California, and Miami.
Blanco soon earned her title as the Godmother of the cocaine industry, her network bringing in $80 million a month.
She was ruthless against rival drug traffickers, and was the mastermind behind hundreds of murders. Colombian officials suspect that she was involved in at least 250 murders in their country, and U.S. detectives believe she was responsible for 40 deaths in America.
Blanco lived a luxurious life as a millionaire in Miami, however in 1984, after her rivals made several attempts to kill her, she relocated to California.
In 1985, Blanco was arrested by DEA agents and served over a decade in federal prison on drug charges. She was then sent to Miami to face murder charges but was able to reach a deal. Blanco plead guilty to three murder charges in exchange for a 10-year sentence. In 2004, she was released from prison and deported back to Colombia.
At the age of 69, after her return to Medellín, she was gunned down by two men. This murder was likely related to her previous life as one of the most feared drug lords in history.
one of my favorite moments in the final dreamscape showdown in the dream thieves (#1 is “I don’t,” obviously) is when Ronan is pleading with Cabeswater and he says “Didn’t you know my father? We’re both Greywarens.” and the Orphan Girl speaks for the forest like "you mean that dude that dreamed up a complicit woman to rear his children just so he could only love the one that resembled himself the most? the guy that abandoned his family for months at a time to run his stolen dream-goods black market syndicate from back-alleys with assassins and crime lords? the one that prepared no safety net or contingency plan for his family after leading a boastful and profiteering life other than dumping millions of dollars their way? nice joke, you’re the only decent one” but it comes out as “Many thieves. One Greywaren.”

Neil Josten is the newest addition to the Palmetto State University Exy team. He’s short, he’s fast, he’s got a ton of potential—and he’s the runaway son of the murderous crime lord known as The Butcher.
But Neil’s not the only one with secrets on the team. One of Neil’s new teammates is a friend from his old life, and Neil can’t walk away from him a second time. Neil has survived the last eight years by running. Maybe he’s finally found someone and something worth fighting for.
Griselda Blanco, also known as “The Cocaine Godmother”,“La Madrina” and “The Black Widow”, was one of the most notorious drug lords of the Medellin Cartel in the 1970’s and early 80’s era. While Pablo Escobar was still a small-time thug in Medellin, Griselda Blanco built up a multi-million dollar cocaine empire between Colombia and the USA. There were several reasons why the teenage runaway from Medellin became one of the mightiest women in the history of drug cartels. Blanco was creative and revolutionized coke trafficking, on one occasion she managed to smuggle drugs sewn in clothes of her own line of underwear. On the other hand, she was known as a criminal mastermind with a spider web of ruthless affiliates, and feared for her cruelty and mercilessness. The total number of murders she either committed herself or ordered through contract killers is still unknown, but it is estimated that she was responsible for up to 200 murders, 40 of them in the USA, including the death of a two-year old boy in 1982.
Griselda was born on February 15th, 1943 as the daughter of a field worker and a landowner in Cartagena, Colombia. She grew up among thugs and sex workers in the slums of Medellin, her mother being a part-time prostitute who was physically abusive towards her. At the age of 13, Griselda joined a youth gang. It is believed that she committed her first murder around that time, when she shot a 11-year old boy that she and her gang had kidnapped from a rich family. Between the age of 14 and 20, Griselda, who had run away from her abusive mother, started working as a prostitute herself. She moved to New York with her first husband, where she started to build up a flourishing trade in cocaine. By 1972, Blanco was controlling New York’s entire cocaine market.
In 1985, Griselda Blanco was arrested in a cocaine trafficking case in New York City. All in all, after her charges for murder had to be dropped due to technicalities, Blanco served roughly 20 years in several US prisons before she was released and deported to Colombia in 2004. Eight years later, on September 3rd, 2012, Blanco was assassinated by two unknown men on a motorcycle in a drive-by-shooting. Ironically, she herself had “invented” motorcycle assassinations in Colombia. Griselda died in a way reminiscent of the numerous murders she used to order during her reign - she was shot in the head twice.
Neil Josten is the
newest addition to the Palmetto State University Exy team. He’s short,
he’s fast, he’s got a ton of potential—and he’s the runaway son of the
murderous crime lord known as The Butcher.
Signing a contract
with the PSU Foxes is the last thing a guy like Neil should do. The team
is high profile and he doesn’t need sports crews broadcasting pictures
of his face around the nation. His lies will hold up only so long under
this kind of scrutiny and the truth will get him killed.
But Neil’s not the only one with secrets on the team…….
an au (inspired by this post) in which Annabeth is a mob boss and Percy is her ocean photographer boyfriend. Shout out to Hannah for being the best beta ever and for headcanoning this au with me pretty much non stop for the last few days.
The fluorescent lights of the interrogation room flicker, giving it a strange glow that makes Percy’s eyes hurt. His fingers tap the beat of some pop song that had played on the radio earlier today onto the metal table that sits in front of him. The table is cool to the touch despite the warm, stale air that hangs in the room, and the accompanying metal chair is starting to make his butt numb despite it only having been here ten minutes.
Shuffling sounds begin emanating from the door in the corner of the room across from Percy, and soon it creaks open. First to step through is a tall blonde man with piercing blue eyes. His athletic build fills up the doorway as he pauses briefly to appraise Percy. Percy appraises him right back, noticing a scar on the corner of the detective’s lip and half of a tattoo that peaks out from under the cuff of his sleeve.
As soon as the detective steps into the room, another enters behind him. Her posture is impeccable and she walks with her head held high like she’s a warrior entering battle. That can’t be good, Percy thinks afterwards. She has on a royal purple blouse that pops against her brown skin, and her black hair is pulled into a braid that cascades over her shoulder.
“Hello, Mr. Jackson,” starts the blonde detective. “I’m Detective Grace and this is my partner Detective Arellano. Thanks so much for agreeing to come down to the station today to talk to us today.”
Percy smiles with a calm confidence, “Of course. Always happy to do my civic duty.”
After the tragic loss of her daughter and husband, a mother allows herself to drown her despair in alcohol for years. Until a group of kids show up and drag her into trouble they refer to as adventure. And she Where the f*** are these kids parents you are going to get yourselves killed, no you should not try to take on a crime lord, oh my god put that sword down.
