Sinful Bastards: Welcome Back, Buttons

The group has taken to constantly ragging on the cleric for his “sad by a tree” moment, and we just like to mess with his player in general. The cleric and I are both unable to attend the game one day, when this conversation happens in the group chat.

Player: “We found Buttons.”

Cleric and I both start freaking out, because he loves Buttons and I love when ridiculous shit happens.

Player: “He was delicious.”

The group continues tormenting the cleric with the details of Buttons’ fate, and while I join in on the heckling, I suspect that this conversation is happening just to torment him, so I private message the player who found and ate Buttons.

Me: “So did we really find Buttons, or are we just harassing [cleric]?”

Player: “No, this all happened. Nat20 on Survival to locate small prey, and since [DM] lets us narrate nat20s, I found Buttons. And then I fireball’d him.”

Look what my friend gave me today!

Ok at first I was like BULLSHIT YOU BOUGHT THIS FOR $23! 

But then I read it and was super excited for you! This game has a lot of my favorite Fire Emblem characters in it!

It may not be one of my favorite Fire Emblems but Im happy you are going to be able to experience one that is super hard to come by these days! Also  This game has a lot of my favorite Fire Emblem characters in it!

I hope your friend has Radiant Dawn as well haha!

HotS Matchmaking System

The Enemy:

  • Gregorio Marmaduke: The retired commander of a PMC renowned throughout the underworld. His vast years of combat experience have given him reflexes that science considers superhuman. His impeccable timing and accuracy suggests that he can actually sense you and doesn’t rely on sight to kill you for the eleventh time.
  • “Harpe #49947″: The world’s most advanced super-AI, capable of beating chessmasters at their game and making calculations that NASA supercomputers could only ever dream of accomplishing. Its creators, eager to see just how adaptable it is, have wired it up to online games.
  • xX_BaronPierceman_Xx: A student no one has seen him in years, but some claim he’s still alive. His name has long been forgotten, and now only his username remains in the minds of those unfortunate enough to meet this devastating NEET in virtual combat. 20 hours of games each day. The remaining four? Optimizing his strategies in Vs AI.
  • MacSheòrais: A Leech Fiend brought to this world by unholy rituals. After a bloody family feud and a terrible curse, a lone exorcist managed to trap MacSheòrais in a computer, isolating him from the world. However, the fiend managed to obtain an internet connection, and uses his 480 years of combat experience to play games to devastating effect.
  • A level 700+ solo queue Medivh: He’s seen it all and he’s got nothing to lose.

Your Team:

  • mark97: His motto is “Arthas is DPS”. Legend says that even if you explain to him what a tank is supposed to be, he won’t understand it, no matter how many times you say it or how good the explanation was. The 97 in his name is his average death count in any given match.
  • Jeremy from high school: Underachiever, underperformer, under the weather. Jeremy is cursed and curses those around him with the number 4: He will say “gg” the moment you lose the first team fight, 4 minutes into the game. When playing with Jeremy, your team fights will always be 4v5, because he will be “pushing” all the way on the other side of the map while you lose the fourth consecutive Altar and the Frozen Punisher is balls deep inside of you once again this match. You will lose before you hit level 4.
  • The Pierrot Of Andalucía: A jester who lost it all. Once a famous performer, a bad bet on the horses was all it took to despoil him of every last gram of hard earned cash he ever had. Now he wanders occupation after occupation, desperate, hollow, trying to find somewhere to belong. He heard of this e-sports thing, and he’s trying to make it his new break. Soon he will learn, as will you, that it is not meant to be.
  • A crash dummy that the Mythbusters hooked up with a computer: They just wanna see if the emotional damage from crushing defeat after crushing defeat can injure it. Dies less than mark97 in average.
  • You, somewhat optimistic because this is already looking better than the last match.

A bit of a rant

I was going to reply to a post saying that DDADDS is a “problematic” game and how people shouldn’t support it because x reason. (GG involvement, the “cult ending”, etc.) I’ve seen this discourse since day one that the game was released and I am honestly sick and tired of seeing it. So therefore, I am putting the matter into my own words, under a cut so if you don’t wish to see anymore of this discourse, you can ignore this post.

I will be discussing GG’s involvement, the so-called “cult ending”, and other problems this discourse has made. There may be mentions of slight spoilers, mostly for Joseph’s route, also it will touch on trans/homophobia.

A stranger’s game

Lutteoficweek Day 3: „My friend bet me 20 bucks that I wouldn’t walk up to a random underclassman and ask them to senior prom and I’m about to be 20 dollars richer and no, that doesn’t invalidate the question, you’re actually really cute.“

Okay, I’m still not completely happy with this and all of the other fics are so great so this won’t compare but anyway, hope you can at least enjoy this a bit. Also an apology to @sky-girls for keeping you so much in suspense, whoops ^^

“Gastón, no, how many more times do I have to say it?”, Matteo inquired with no intention of hiding how annoyed he was, his mood clearly reflected in his voice. “I won’t ask Ámbar, I’d rather be locked in my room for the rest of the school year.”

“Come on, just look at you”, Gastón argued, “It can’t be that hard to find you a date.”

Matteo stopped. Outright froze on his spot, not caring about the other students in the hallway that now had to avoid running into him. “I don’t want a date. I want to go with you and the guys and just enjoy the evening!”, he stated.

His best friend turned to him, wearing a smirk he couldn’t quite understand. Not that he paid it much attention though, after all Gastón behaved a bit weird since he started crushing on a girl he met on the internet. “Well, I bet…”, Gastón started out and suddenly Matteo regretted dismissing that evil grin so easily, “That you won’t walk up to a random girl right here, right now and ask her to prom or else I’ll owe you 20 bucks.”

Surprised, Matteo raised an eyebrow at his best friend. Had he lost his mind? “You really want to bet on this?” Gastón nodded. “Okay, watch and learn, buddy.”

He strolled through the hallway for several minutes already, but honestly Matteo felt clueless as to who he wanted to ask. Well, a little brunette crossed his mind, but neither did he know her name nor was she around to be seen. So, he kept checking the other girls out. (None of them managed to spark some interest in him.)

Just when he considered giving up, someone bumped into him out of nowhere.

Before he knew it, a girl appeared in his vision and they were both tripping towards the floor. He regained his balance in a blink and found her secured in his arms. A few moments passed until he took a closer look.

Green big eyes. Brown curls falling into her face. Matteo recognized her, remembered her face in an instant. That’s when he knew he had found the perfect girl for his quest.

“Oh my… I am so sorry”, she stammered while she untangled herself from him. “Don’t be”, he smiled at her. His lips curled up without him even trying to and he wondered if it seemed weird. Probably not as weird as what left his mouth next, though: “I’ve actually been looking for you. Kind of.”

“What? You?”, her eyes flew over him, “Looking for me?”

He had no intention of scaring her away with a teasing comment or a cocky smile – the grin Gastón called ‘worthy of the king of the Blake and the way into any girl’s heart’ – nonetheless holding it back turned out to get incredibly hard when a hint of pink spread out on her cheeks. Damn, she was adorable.

“You seem nervous, if I mess with you like this and swept you off your feet just with that uniform, wait until you see me in a tuxedo.” (There went his resolution of not saying something stupid…)


A quick glance in Gastón’s direction told Matteo that his friend followed his every move. So, he decided to straight up go for it. “Do you want to go to prom with me?”

The girl stared at him, eyes wide open. Well, he hadn’t expected an outburst of joy and excitement (okay, maybe), but this wasn’t what he had in mind either.

“I don’t think so, sorry”, she finally replied. Hesitation tinted her voice, yet she took a step back and shook her head.

A knot settled in Matteo’s throat, bothering him to no end. There wasn’t a single good reason for him to feel disappointed. Tons of girls visited this school. All he had to do was to search for another one, one who gladly jumped at the opportunity. But his heart couldn’t be argued with, he simply didn’t want to ask anyone else.

“May I ask why?”, he said.

She snorted, like it should be obvious to him, like it was a no-brainer. “Because this guy over there, who I assume is your friend, looks suspiciously shocked and now he’s grinning at me way too obviously and Ámbar over there is killing me with her looks. Hang on, are you her boyfriend?”

Surprised, he turned around to indeed find the blonde on the stairs, sending the two of them her death glare. “You know her?” The girl nodded, her eyes rolling so hard Matteo wondered what Ámbar had done to her.

“Unfortunately, yes”, she explained, “We live in the same house.” He wanted to ask for details, really. Nevertheless, the word got stuck on his tongue as she looked at him with a new intensity in her eyes. And she didn’t just look at him like you looked at a stranger passing by, no, she checked him out as if she intended to savor every detail about him. Promptly, he stood up straighter.

“Wait, when Ámbar is your girlfriend, you must be Matteo then?”

And for a minute he seriously believed she’d change her mind and agree to go to prom with him. What a shame.

“Indeed I am”, he said, “But to answer your question, she was my girlfriend and from the fact you didn’t know that I assume she wants me back. And Gastón, my friend over there, is only shocked because he owes me 20 bucks now.” It remained beyond him why it slipped out so easily, why he didn’t mind being so honest about the bet when perhaps it only made her warier.

She blinked in confusion at all this new information.

“Wait, wait, so this really is a game to you? A joke simply for some money?”

Matteo never belonged to the kind of people who easily admitted a mistake. Nonetheless he might have been a bit wrong here to spill out the truth.

Lifting his hands in surrender, he tried to save the situation: “Hey, now you’re getting ahead of yourself. It’s kind of a bet, yes, but I still would feel very honored if you were my prom date.” The little brunette looked like she wanted to run away. Why did he feel so disappointed at the thought of her leaving him without a date?

“Why?”, she responded, her gaze fleeing his eyes. “Because you are super cute, of course”, Matteo winked, not willing to give up, “And don’t worry about falling, I will catch you. I promise.”

A snort followed his answer, “It was an accident.” At the same time, however, he discovered the blush on her cheeks. She no longer seemed to wish to be somewhere else either.

He only grinned more. “I don’t hear a No, does that mean you’ll go with me?”

“I’m not going to prom with someone I know nothing about, you could be an axe murderer who takes bets on innocent little girls!”, she declared, “Or you’re planning to pull a huge, mean prank on me, like in Carrie. Maybe Ámbar is even helping you.”

Although she probably meant all of it, he laughed. “Wow, that was wrong on so many levels, I have no idea where to start. Okay, first, you do know something about me. An example: you knew my name before I even introduced myself. Second, I won’t prank anyone, and especially not a cute… wait, what’s your name?” How come he hadn’t gotten around to ask her yet?

“See! You have no idea who I am!” With crossed arms, she shot him a look, as if to tell him he’d never get to know her. If only she realized how much he loved a challenge…

“Do you always ask out random girls?”, she then added. Matteo leaned forwards, just close enough for her to blink surprised. “Only when they’re you. And you still haven’t told me your name.”

He felt Gastón’s eyes in his back, how his best friend shifted impatiently. None of it mattered anymore when she looked away and mumbled: “I’m Luna.”

“Okay, nice to meet you then, Luna.” An idea struck him like a bolt of lightning. Without giving it a second thought, he dropped on one knee. “Now that we officially know each other…” Nothing would stop him now, not the gasp he heard from behind him nor Luna mouthing what sounded like “Oh no”. He gave her his brightest smile. “Luna, will you do me the honor of going on a date with me and, when you decide I am not an axe murderer and only kill with my good looks – will you go to prom with me too?”

Luna shook her head in disbelief. “How are the chances of you standing up before I give you an answer?”

Matteo pretended to consider it before he chuckled and stated: “Below zero.”

For a moment, she directly looked into his eyes and he swore he hadn’t seen anything like this sparkling green, anything so bright and full of life.

“Okay, well, have fun with the floor then.” With that, she smirked and turned away. He had mere seconds to react, to stop her, so he grabbed her hand and whirled her around again. “Luna, why are you so harsh? I don’t get on my knees for everyone.”

“Yeah, of course not”, she agreed. Sarcasm tinted her voice. He began to doubt she’d ever say yes, not that he was ready to give up yet. “Only for poor girls who run into you and are the perfect victims for your bets?”, another dagger into his chest.

He hated that she thought about him like that, hated that this was the impression she got of him within those few minutes. Getting up, he reached out for her arm again, only to stop himself. He needed to show her she was wrong, but not like this.

“I saw you, on the first day of school”, Matteo started, nearly shy for the first time in ages. “You looked lost, and then you asked that girl with the glasses for help.” He left out the part where he had begun to walk in her direction, where he had wanted to help her before she disappeared with that other girl.

Luna’s eyes widened in surprise. “You noticed me.”

“I really mean it, Luna, there is no other random girl I’d rather ask to prom.” In return, he received a slight smile that felt like his biggest success this year. “Well… ask me again about prom when we were on at least one date.”

“I love your thinking, Luna.”

When Matteo walked up to Gastón, he tried to play it cool. He tried so hard. But like the moon got pulled towards the earth he felt a grin pulling the corners of his mouth up where it probably would settle down for the rest of the day.

His best friend didn’t take it quite as well, as he waited for him with his arms crossed, mouth open, flabbergasted. “You dropped on your knees?”, Gastón asked after some seconds of silence. “I did.”

“And kissed her cheek?”

Matteo recalled the expression on Luna’s face when he leaned in and gently brushed his lips against her skin, remembered the shy smile she gave him. “No regrets”, he replied.

“Did she say Yes?”, Gastón continued, seemingly surprised. Matteo couldn’t blame him, usually he kept it together around girls, usually he didn’t care if they genuinely liked him. Still, he shrugged it off. “Uh, kind of.”  Not that it mattered for their bet, Matteo won anyway.

However, personally it mattered to him. A lot. He seriously hoped this one date Luna agreed to wouldn’t be their last one.

“Aren’t you rushing things a bit?” Matteo sighed, annoyed at the sheer amount of questions the boy in front of him came up with. “What are you trying to tell me, Gastón?”, he shot back. “Nothing really”, a pause and worse, a chuckle with wiggling eyebrows, “Quick question for you, when will you kiss her?”

“When I bring her home after our… I am definitely not thinking about that!”

His response provoked nothing but a laugh from Gastón. Patting his shoulder, he said: “Whatever makes you feel better about yourself, whatever makes you feel better.” In this moment, Matteo realized that whatever argument he might find, nothing would wipe that stupid grin on Gastón’s face away. Not even the reminder he gave him before they walked off to class: “Hey, you owe me 20 bucks now!”

anonymous asked:

Do you think Waver loves Iskandar? I saw your musing reblog and wanted your opinion.

       I am going to assume you are referencing this post that I reblogged earlier today, because that’s the only reblog I can recall that would have someone asking something like this, so I’m like - uhm, yes hello, hi there :)) But of course, I adore rambling about these two, so I would be more than happy to give an opinion. ❤️

       Short answer: without a doubt
There is no doubt in my mind that Waver does love him. Just looking at a certain detail in his day to day - video games. Waver, you ain’t slick.

(Just a warning, this is going to be taken from a platonic perspective rather than romantic. I can’t be like - AHHHH THIS SHIP IS CANON ASDGHJK!!11!1!! So, I’m going to keep this as platonic love throughout this entire post.)

       Detailing a bit more though, I can see Waver loving Alexander just as much as anyone could for their dear friend. His love stems from such an abundance of respect he has for him to calling Alexander his ‘King’ and agreeing to be his retainer, living on for not only himself but to make sure he can tell his Servant’s story. Yet sometimes I believe maybe Waver is continuing to live and hope that he will see Alexander again some day, just lingering on the thought that they will meet again.

       In Case Files, he is caught talking to “Alexander” (his relic in a locker) by Reines, which she tells him to stop talking to himself because it is weird - Which, c'mon, Waver. That is a little odd, but… it is also very sad. To think, he misses him that much he would openly talk to someone that isn’t there. It is a form of pining that reflects a deep longing for him. He wants to have his friend back, someone that saw him as an EQUAL despite being weaker and inferior to him. Waver’s inferiority complex is so great, and Alexander saw that but he built him up when he needed it most.

       Flat even describes Alexander as someone his professor would spend his entire life to see again. It might be silly, but the fact that Waver would go through his life and have this dream need to see him, even just once - It shows how much of an impact was made upon him that he would go through such lengths of waiting. Maybe he is longing for the idea or memory of him, a friend he clearly cherishes so much.

               There is probably a lot more reasons but jfc I can’t make this post too long,
                               but if that ^^^^^ ain’t love, then I don’t know what is.

ideas for a new animal crossing game!!
  • windy days where the trees blow and bells chime and villagers comment about being swept away 
  • sunflowers! water lillies! 
  • more ways to group things like the fruit baskets such as bouquets of flowers
  • keep all your tools on a tool belt that takes up one slot
  • being able to choose where villagers live or bring back something like the signposts 
  • more conversations+replies! Just more things for villagers to say in general i’m tired of the same thing every day 
  • letter system that recognizes key phrases/words and has villagers reply to it (like if you say “how are you” they would respond, if you write something mean they would get upset and not just thank you lol) 
  • duck villagers like the rain as well as frogs (i think ducks like rain?? not entirely sure tho)
  • meet villagers at the café, museum, beach, etc for a date sort of thing, like instead of meeting at your house meet at the café. 
  • bring back constellations, or at least be able to tell Celeste she’s adorable again I miss flirting with her.   
  • become friends with npc like u do with sable/ once you become good enough friends they get their pictures (ik u can get some special character pics but I want blathers and the able sisters and pete etc etc) at a certain level they can pop into your house uninvited  
  • be able to send kk slider fanmail/ send mail to other npcs
  • a way to plant grass. Please. 
  • fruit bushes, berries and things like that 
  • MORE FLESHED OUT VILLAGER PERSONALITIES. I want villagers to be mean to me again and yell at me!! villagers that are cold at first and then build up a friendship with them! I want this more than anything else on the list tbh  
  • christmas lights on houses and buildings!!
  • a main street similar to the one in HHD with more shops! 
  • basically everything from HHD: furniture outside, furniture closer together you can squeeze through, middle slots for items on tables, villagers holding items like ice cream, ceiling decorations and curtains and windows oh my, possibly furniture outside but with a limit 
  • resize things as a form of customization 
  • ability to turn furniture in more directions 
  • a big hide and seek competition like the fishing tourney where you have to find every villager or something? 
  • give isabelle time off! Maybe a new character that takes her place when she’s on break, like phyllis in the post office
  • when isabelle has time off (sundays? Lunch time?) u can see her roaming around town
  • more colors/options for pwp, like the police station has two options. different color scheme choices for the campsite, café, any pwp could have multiple color choices basically
  • brewster stores gyroids again I loved seeing him geek out over them
  • something (like thanksgiving) where you can gather certain food, fish, other things, bring to a piece of kitchen furniture and make them into a food to bring to your villagers or sell (ex: gather a bunch of apples and make a pie) maybe a grocery store to go along with this? And you could buy exotic fruit from that store as well?
  • more stories like able sisters+tom nook, maybe blathers and brewsters gay lovestory or something
  • buy different styles of fish tanks and bug boxes, a big tank for a lot of fish, ability to throw fish food in 
  • a new way to make paths instead of patterns with options for cobblestone, brick, asphalt, and sidewalk materials
  • in your encyclopedia an icon that shows if you’ve donated it to the museum 
  • ability to rotate pwps/houses
  • more animations, for example Jock villagers can jog around town
  • library pwp with a new uptight librarian character that likes you because you’re so quiet
  • pwp on beaches+ ones made specifically for it like beach umbrellas
  • villagers contribute to museum and donate more to Pwp
  • areas away from the village you could travel to and explore, similar to the island, like woods, a winter world, maybe even some sort of planet you could unlock! Each have a few villagers or npcs living there, like the islanders in older games  

Feel free to reblog and add any more of your own ideas or tag your favs :)

real talk people want so badly to believe that jopseh just has internalized homophobia and that hes only staying with his wife to hide his sexuality when there are multiple people aware that he’s bisexual (robert, mary, and probably more).

joseph lied to you when he got you to sleep with him on his yacht. he told you that he and mary were through which we know wasnt the case because mary was suspicious of you hanging out with her husband when you walk her home from the bar on josephs route. the entire route, he is manipulating your character into believing that he and his wife have issues for just the reason of them not working well together when in reality she’s developed depression and resorted to alcoholism because he is consistently cheating on her with other people. we don’t even know if its exclusively men.

we just know that he’s been doing this for a long time; pampering people and treating them special so he can get into bed with them once and never talk to them again. he tries to make it seem like robert sleeps around like its no big deal all the time and while you do have the option to sleep with robert on the first night, he makes sure you’re okay with it and if you do he doesnt contact you, again. why? because he doesnt like drunken one-night-stands. he was expecting for you to show some kind of interest in sticking around with him when he told you to leave but we didn’t get any dialogue options for it so he just assumes that you were there just for the one-nighter.

and this probably have something to do with joseph cheating on his wife with robert after pampering him and treating him with way too much kindness. hell, he even let robert wear the blue sweater that joseph always has around his neck, that was the sweater referenced in the old picture with all the dads. joseph was manipulating robert, making it seem like it wasnt his fault that his relationship with his wife was bad. and then? he takes him to his yacht and fucks him under the guise that him and his wife are through.

thats why robert, after you do two dates with him, shows up at the beginning of josephs third date to try and warn you. he doesnt want you to get hurt like he has, but robert definitely has some trouble being verbal and explaining what he means and lets his anger get the best of him. they want you to think the marriage troubles are all mary’s fault until you start getting to know mary through the other routes. shes a good woman who has never once outright cheated on joseph. she flirts and drinks to cope with his infidelity.

the way joseph acts from the getgo is some pretty shady behavior so i personally wasnt really surprised to find out how much of a dick he really is. what surprised me is that the writers wrote a very real kind of person into this ‘lighthearted’ dating simulator. josephs abusive and manipulative behavior is an incredibly real thing that happens every day, this game is trying to show you how to identify it before it gets too far or you do something you regret.

theyre not saying ‘gay/bisexual men are unfaithful!’ or ‘christians are going to hurt and abuse you!’ theyre saying ‘some people actually do this and theyre abusive as hell if youre in this situation or feel someone might be trying to do this to you, get out’

mary doesnt leave him for reasons that were never written into the story. probably because she doesnt want to put her kids through a divorce so early in their lives.

basically joseph being an abusive and manipulative partner has nothing to do with his sexuality or religion. he’s just written to be an absolute cock.
