do people still play that

Niantic announced they have 65 million people playing Pokémon GO last month and some people feel the constant need to ask, “Do people still play this game?”

Like, I’m sorry you got bored with it after a week, but yes, people still play this game. Stop asking like it makes you look cool like you’ve “outgrown” it or something.

…you know what it feels like to get booped off an edge. You just…let it happen and die a little inside is all.

AU where instead of going to Samwell, Jack starts a widely successful Publicly Broadcast show for children.

Jack learns that he is great with kids after coaching them for a little over two years. Moreover, kids are good with Jack. There is no pressure to be anything other than who he is.


It all starts with a local news program doing a fluff piece on Jack Zimmermann’s coaching ability. But then it turned into something completely different when Jack skated onto camera and started to introduce every single one of his kids and what was special about them. He was…really enchanting actually. He didn’t ever really talk down to them. Jack just treated them as a tiny friend. 

They ARE his tiny friends, but that’s not the point. 

The footage they got of “snack time” was really the best. Imagine a good 16 kids piled around this massive man teaching them the best way to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. 

 It should have been obvious that a local channel would contact him. It still surprises Jack. They want him to host a show? Why? Everyone always teased him about how impersonable he was during interviews. Is it because he’s Jack Zimmermann’s son? Or Alicia’s? 

Jack asks all of these questions to his mother and she just laughs. “You made a PB&J interesting to 16 kids just by being you”

Jack figures it wouldn’t hurt to give it a shot.

I can’t stop thinking about ‘it’s quite surreal’, and 'amazing, yeah. This is incredible, isn’t it?’ Because that’s how Sam and Anthony were last year. And they lost it so fast because people are awful.

With Theo and Samuel we have two young men, at the start of their career, and I just think that as a fandom we should be respectful of them and not invasive or over-excitable or rude or any of the other countless things we could do to them.

They’re human beings, doing a job that should probably be the most amazing, fun job in the world. And it looks like they’re going to be spectacular at it. But can we remember that they are just that? Human beings doing a job. They’re not toys. They’re not play things. They’re not characters. They’re not for us to speculate over or ship. They’re people with lives and families and friendships.

So can we please be kind to them and show them we care about them and value them, and not drive them away and make them jaded? Let them have this amazing experience without us ruining it for them.

They’re so young. And they deserve to enjoy themselves and keep the wonder we saw in the video today. Is that so much to ask? Can people please be nice?

I didn’t see this process play out from the beginning last time, but I know it’s coming this time and it’s horrible. It’s beginning already, and I hate everything about it.

People: Why do you still play Toontown?

Me (externally) : Idk, it’s fun

Me (internally): Similar to people who can’t let go of childhood objects because it brings them comfort, that is also me. Toontown was the good light in a traumatic childhood and relieves so much stress in the world and replaces it with a happy atmosphere and actually helps with my mood so-

just wanted to say a major shout out to all you badasses who are struggling to balance any of your classes, courses, APs, and honors with ASB, clubs, yearbook, journalism, sports, community service, religious activities, internships, or any other extra-curricular activities. I know what it feels like to feel constantly busy and finish late at night only to find more work waiting for you when you come home. your work is appreciated and you are doing your part to make the world a better place.

I have my issues with bioware, which I feel like is putting it maybe too lightly, but dragon age has gotten me through some of my most suffocating depressive episodes. 

i honestly have never heard anyone say ‘zayn’ more times than liam

I always say that if ur really REALLY itching to play some d&d the BEST way to start playing ASAP and make friends? Be a dungeon master/game master. You don’t even have to have played before, technically, though a cursory familiarity with tabletop roleplaying helps. If you have a concept, a calendar, and a will, you can do it, I promise, just jump on in. The books and PDFs are really easy to get a hold of and are written really accessibly. So many people wanna play D&D but no one can find a willing DM seemingly. The age of technology and rapidly improving voice chat and software make playing a campaign with players all over the country easier than ever if ur lacking an irl group. Google the different editions, find one that you vibe with, hell, check out Pathfinder and GURPS and other formats while you’re at it. Then make a recruitment post and I guarantee you’ll be playing within the month. Don’t be afraid to DM.

Hour 19:50 I Will Protect The World!

Dinner was great,  a calm and drowsy feeling washed over Zack. He kicked his feet up on the desk and pulled the keyboard into his lap as he typed out some work he had. It wasn’t due for a awhile but he was feeling oddly productive tonight. Well, at first, the moment he was in need of changing up his music he logged onto his Youtube account and saw notification after notification of new uploads on his favorite personalities. What was supposed to be one funny video turned into ten and before he new it he was drinking a coke and was resting in a reclined position, keyboard pushed aside. Well, work could wait now it was time for leisure. 

It was beginning to rain harder and suddenly thunder was booming across the skies and lightning struck down to the earth. Zack walked around the room making sure everything was connected to a power surge. Just as he was satisfied all his stuff would be safe a loud BANG exploded through the sky and then the apartment was engulfed in darkness. The only source of light came from the windows but even then it was barely illuminating anything. He glanced at the cameras and saw a red light flashing, seemed that the security system worked on a back up generator or something. Which reminded him, he turned to the desk and looked at the locked drawer. A green flashing light, barely visible, blinked against the wall. Damn, that drawer was still locked. He sighed and climbed onto his bed and grabbed his phone. He had crappy signal but he could still do something with it. He had a few games that didn’t require service so maybe playing those would be best.

do you ever look at falling stars
and dwell in astonishment,
— bewildered so much
that you start wanting to become
a part of their play?

or do you pity them
as people still manage
to proclaim their wishes
despite the occurrence
of a tragic fall?

do you ever look at them
and wonder how
they look just like you?
