Aww, I like Tarantino's films. Though they are absolutely Problematic Faves. I'd actually be curious to hear what you say about him, so maybe make that video anyway, haha.
I don’t dare critique every male film major’s favorite director lol. I talked about Game of Thrones in a semi-critical way and they descended upon me. I do think his movies are really well made and I enjoy them But I always picture Quentin Tarantino sitting in a room by himself typing out the n-word 300+ times for Django and I get annoyed.
can i get hanzo with a gamer s/o? i love your writing btw!! have a good one
Sure thing! And thank you very much!
- Even though Hanzo is not really a gamer himself, he doesn’t mind watching you game now and then though, it brings him a sense of peace and he is quite impressed with your skills as well. He’d compliment you now and then on how easily you complete a level or when you have a winning streak against others. He thinks that gaming can raise your reaction speed and reflexes as well, even though he finds them silly at times. They do have a purpose if you view them that way.
- Won’t really participate in any games unless you ask him and tell him it would make you happy, because he would probably only do it for that reason at first. Once he gets in the mood though and is over the awkwardness of trying it out, expect a very competitive archer trying to beat you at your best game. He would probably create his own ‘test’ for you, to see if you are truly the best gamer and still as sharp as usual, so he would raise his own skills to be able to defeat you at your high score, all for the sake of keeping you in your best shape of course. He likes to see the master playing their best tricks and he would surely be a challenge to defeat, once he has the hang of all of the controls.
- If you defeat him in any games, he might be a little bit of a sore loser if he finds that he did not give it his all, but on the other hand, he is also very supportive and would tell you that you played a fine game as usual. If he manages to defeat you however? Expect a lot of bragging from his part and slight teasing maybe as well. He would mean no harm though, as he would affectionately ruffle your hair when you pout in defeat, but he would tell you to maybe train a little extra to stay on top. You two would then train together ingame, perfecting the play of your chosen character before a rematch would take place.
- Hugs and cuddles from behind are also a frequent occasion as you are looking intently at the screen before you on the couch with Hanzo behind you, holding you carefully in his embrace all the while he is chuckling at your serious expression. Are you playing on a desktop? No problem, Hanzo would just put his arms around you and perhaps startle you a little with a tickling kiss on your neck, but you would easily get used to that over time. In the beginning however, there were many a time where you could throw a pillow to his face for letting you lose your game by him surprising you like that. The stoic archer would not cease his approaches though, as he thinks a small break is necessary now and then as well and would find it quite amusing to say the least. As you had gotten used to it, you could even surprise him back by already having finished your game, before he appeared behind you and kiss his lips instead.
I LOVE your WW responses, thank you for articulating my unease with the fact that it's been received so differently from R1 and reasons for, um, just thinking it was ok (there were bits I absolutely loved, but a lot that was just...ok). In the UK WW1 features in school year after year, probably more than WW2, particularly in terms of the front line, and though I've seen some posts do a decent job of explaining the intentions of the WW1 setting I still don't feel it was as successful as (1/?)
interesting points! long meta from me again, under the cut.
i was introduced to cry through a middle school friend who was obsessed with his voice. i decided “what the heck” and looked him up. my first playthrough was the cat lady, and holy shit did i fall in love with his slow, careful decision-making and humor?? i found pewdiepie and markiplier through him. i discovered jacksepticeye because of him. cry was my gateway into gaming youtube, and even though i haven’t watched him in a long time he will always have a very, very special place in my heart.
I want to say that it was you who played Mystic Messenger? Hopefully it is, but did you hear that V is now going to be a romantic option? If you never played this game before... never mind 😅
I’m supposed to be doing something else rn but I just had to respond to this BC YEAH I USED TO PLAY MYSTIC MESSENGERS BAHAHA omg is that true?? I think I like seven too much to date his twin bro though LMAO are you playing his route?
So now that the game is over and I my mouth feels like broken dreams, I wanted to say a heartfelt thank you! I had so much damn fun playing that game and recording the series.
It sucks because I was REALLY getting into it and finally found the voices for the characters and was really settling in and then it was over. I want so much more! haha. That being said I will be playing the spinoff games “Lost Constellations” and “Longest Night” soon to just explore more of that world.
I have a lot of thoughts and theories on the game that surfaced the more I thought about the game after finishing and recording it that I’d love to talk about at some point. I might even do a livestream sometime soon just playing the game again and going over theories and redoing sections to see if we missed anything, since there were hangs with Bea and Gregg that I didn’t do.That could be fun right?…….. tacos.
I’m also super happy with the voices I managed to do for the characters, I mean sure some misc. characters were a bit shitty and I repeated voices and forgot others but I’m proud of the voices I gave the main gang. I feel like they fitted well and showed their personalities. I just love games where I can do lots of voices haha.
I want to also say thank you to all those who got super into the game and did art (some of which are insane!) or those who posted gifs and just talked in general about the game, you guys RULE! It’s hard find games like this one that REALLY connect with people but when you do it’s super special, I think I’ll remember this series for a very long time. I want so much more of it though!!!
Aries: You’re trying to do so much in such little time, but darling take a breath it will be okay. Time is still time you can’t change it even if you waned to. Everyone’s fighting for something, but you’re fighting yourself. Don’t do that because everything will be alright in the end
Taurus: Love is tough, love is rare to find but when you find that special someone s/he’s going to be like finding a diamond on the street: unexpected, inconvenient, but something you will never let go of
Gemini: You’re scared about the future. You’re scared you’re not enough. BUT YOU ARE. BABY YOU ARE. Don’t try and be someone you’re not because you can only be the best version of yourself
Cancer: The past tends to hold onto you. You scream of high hopes and sweet dreams. It’s the best thing about you, but baby don’t let it hurt you. Keep moving forward because things that are meant to be will work out eventually. Work for what you want but don’t hurt yourself more than you have to
Leo: You’re busy getting your life together. You want to party and socialize but you life is taking a toll on you. Balance in your life is important. Make sure to cherish yourself and others equally. Even when life is tough, you got this. I believe in you
Virgo: School and work, school and work, that’s what your life revolves around. What’s a bath? You don’t know. How do your pamper yourself? No idea. Live a life that you want! Don’t be afraid to take risks. Nothing is a bad as it seems
Libra: You socialize and smile but on the inside you feel isolated and sad. Don’t surround yourself with negative people. People who are supposed to be in your life will be there. Not everyone and everything is permanent. Some are there simply to help you grow
Scorpio: You want things to work out but you’re scared! You’re not used to vulnerability, and you’re scared to let people see you for who you truly are. You’re wonderful and beautiful cutie, don’t let anyone else think otherwise
Sagittarius: You think that everyone is distancing themselves from you because you’re distant from them. All you want is to be loved. Don’t worry. You’re funny, and witty and the life of the party. People will love you as long as you tell them you love them too
Capricorn: You’re so confused all the time. People think you know what you’re doing but you’re so frustrated all the time. Don’t think about other peoples opinions because your life is yours so live it. Don’t worry about what others think
Aquarius: Do you ever feel like you’re ahead of your game but behind everyone else at the same time? You feel like you’re missing SOMETHING but you’re not sure what it is. What you’re missing is confidence babe! You’re doing great and you’re gonna keep doing great things i promise xo
Pisces: What you want to do seems so unattainable right now. You feel like no one supports you, not even yourself. Everything will work out as planned if you keep going though. Love is something you should fight for, not back away from even when it gets hard. You got this darling
i have a lot of memories of being a small child and trying to play pc games with my brother and consistently, utterly failing to perform basic tasks. we never got a single sim to move into our simcity. we played virtual safari and were in AWE when we finally figured out how to leave the fucking house. we played that 101 dalmations game and when we managed to get to the minecarts it was another holy shit moment. i didn’t even know simant had goals. i just build an ant palace for my chosen ant, and then built elaborate insect zoos and coliseums where lesser ants could fight to the death. i think the only game i managed to play successfully was clue, and that’s because it was literally just the board game. that, and that game where you were on a keebler elf mountain doing math. that doesn’t count though. anyway one of these days i will hunt those games down just to beat them and get a better sense of the basic level of incompetence i suffered as a third grader.
Description: You reveal to your friends that no one except yourself has ever made you cum. Jin in particular finds this interesting and dares you and Jungkook to go to the sex shop down the street and purchase a sex toy, for your own benefit of course.
Pairings: You x Jungkook, You x Taehyung, Jungkook x Taehyung (you know how truth and dare goes)
Basically: Taehyung is a cocky lil shit who features quite a lot. Jin is a mean lil shit and Jungkook is a very helpful lil shit ;)
Genre: Smut, Angst, Fluff (so much smut, like damn this was hot to write)
This fic includes: A brief boy on boy scene, swearing, alcohol, sex toys, explicit smut
Word count: 6k
“You’ve got to be kidding!” Jin practically howls with laughter, doubling over himself and nearly falling off the couch with laughter. You’re about to tell him off but Jungkook beats you to it.
“Shut up. It’s not that big of a deal.”
Jin sits up straight, looking down at Jungkook, who sits next to you on the floor, opposite Jin. He wipes the tears from his eyes, his laughter finally dying down. “Hey, don’t you think you should talk to me with a bit more respect?” He prods teasingly, but Jungkook doesn’t seem in the mood, his previous lighthearted spirit vanishing upon Jin’s insensitive comment.
Jungkook’s tone is excitingly stern, but not rude, “Yeah, I’ll show more respect when you show more respect to Y/N.”
You laugh, “Don’t worry about me, Jungkook. I don’t think I can take Jin very seriously, not when I highly doubt he’d even know how to make me or any other girl cum.”
The circle of friends in Taehyung and Jungkook’s apartment erupt into comical ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’.
“You got damn burned!” Jimin says, leaning over the bottles in the center of your various seated positions to high five you.
(I know there’s this amazing ask blog ( @ask-gaymermell ) and while this is separate from theirs (and I kinda came up with this idea before I knew about the blog) I still highly recommend that way more than these silly ideas.)
•Starts out doing EXTREME stunts on vine of all places.
•They are freakin INSANE OK?
•Jake is the one who films it
•He does get pretty popular
•A little bit before Vine dies, Rich moves to YouTube and makes his videos more of showing him doing the set ups and showing what goes on for a stunt.
•They are still really reckless but that’s what everyone is there for.
•It’s soon coming up on the anniversary of him doing stunts for 3 maybe 4 years and he wants to do something EPIC
•Something that has NEVER been done before. And he hyped it up months in advance and his audience is mega hyped!!
•Until Rich suddenly disappeares
•For like three months, people thinking that he just… quit.
•Until Rich finally comes and uploads a video.
•It’s really vague, something happened with his stunt. Involving a fire. Him being in the hospital. And a friend getting hurt as well.
•Rich says that he can’t do stunts anymore, and that he doesn’t even know what to do anymore. YouTube was the way he made a living. But he doesn’t know what to do.
•"So… this might be goodbye. I’m sorry everyone.“
•There is a lot of people who felt bad for Rich and many who thought he was being a baby. This incident ended up becoming huge, news articles putting up stories, information being revealed.
•After 6 months, Rich appears again in a new channel. A vlogging channel of all things.
•Rich confesses that he had never truly showed himself to his audience before (for some reason…). And he had "edited” his lisp out of his videos. But he said that from then on, he was going to be honest and true.
•People were a bit salty about him still not doing stunts. But to Rich it didn’t matter, soon he admitted that he was having more fun doing this rather than stunts.
•Soon after a couple of months on the first day of June, he comes out as Bi. Telling a story that he had never thought of guys before and when he did he denied any sort of attraction. Until after the fire, when he decided to be true to himself.
•He does make an icon out of that, no longer being known as the “stunt guy” but the “bi boi” which made Rich laugh.
•Not soon after did Rich introduce his best friend (soon later to be boyfriend, but I’ll explain that later) Jake. Who had been shown in videos before but never introduced.
•But Rich always kept a jacket on. And wore makeup on his face.
•Many people would ask about what happened but Rich never wanted to talk about it. Many theories about it arose about it.
•Until on its anniversary, where Rich decided to tell how he was “convinced” to do this big fire stunt. Even though Jake and others had warned him.
•Rich then took off his jacket and his makeup to show his burns.
•In the middle of the video Jake had to come in and help Rich talk about what had happened.
•Jake had saved his life, but had broken both of his legs in the process. Jake still had to wear braces on his legs at the moment.
•But it was getting better. Rich and Jake were often considered the “power couple” of YouTube. Despite the fact that Jake didn’t have a channel. Or did he?
•Loves music, so much. And puts his music on YouTube for fun.
•This is even before Rich had moved to YouTube or had even gotten big on Vine.
•He never shows his face, he makes his own art for the song and has it play in the background.
•He wasn’t popular at all. No one knew about his channel, not even Rich. But Jake rarely uploaded anyway. Only like one song ever couple of months.
•Jake wrote about being popular, about having fun, about summer, and about school.
•One day… he wrote about love.
•It was after the fire and Rich was in a full body cast. Him in a wheelchair. Rich had confessed everything to Jake. The Squip. The stunts. Everything.
•It only took a month for Jake to fall for him and write a song about it.
•and it EXPOLDED
•Which Jake didn’t even realize until Rich came in happier than he had been in weeks saying “Jakey D! You gotta check this out!”
•When Jake heard his own voice, he was shocked. He then checked later to see that it had over 1 million views.
•Jake started getting emails, asking to sign on. But Jake denied them all. Music was hobby, and Jake didn’t really want it to be more than that.
•But he continued to write music, but now. He wrote about his family. About being alone. About drugs. Each one getting more and more popular.
•And Jake honestly couldn’t believe it. Especially when his best friend / crush became his biggest fan.
•He never planned on telling anyone. But one day as Rich had one of his worst days in awhile. Jake wrote another song. For him.
•But instead of uploading it first. He came into Rich’s room with his guitar. And he sang.
•Rich originally thought it was just another one of his songs. Playing from his phone. But he didn’t recognize the song. So when he looked up at Jake, he was shocked.
•Jake sung about all the things he loved about Rich. How despite everything they went through he still loved him. Jake poured his heart and soul into it.
•when he was done, Rich kneeled on his bed grabbed him by the shirt into a big kiss. Didn’t really matter that the big guitar was in the way.
•Jake didn’t reveal himself as the mysterious artist for awhile. But the inside jokes that Jake and Rich had may have hinted at it.
•Jeremy was told by Rich, who he had met in passing. Recognizing him on the spot. To get a Squip, and that’s how Rich could do all that crazy shit he did.
•Jeremy wanted to be cool like that. Have fans. Michael already had his own gaming channel, but Jeremy wanted to be better.
•The Squip had decided that Jeremy should ditch the gaming and do challenge videos instead. All the popular stuff. Even though Jeremy didn’t really care much for it.
•Soon Jeremy was starting to do more dangerous stuff. Talking about sensitive topics.
•Michael tried to talk to him, but Jeremy just said that he was jealous that he was getting more subs than him.
•The Squip is about to make him do something really crazy when Jeremy finds out what happened to Rich. So he gets Michael’s help and shuts down the Squip.
•Jeremy then makes an apology video about the sensitive stuff he said. And deletes his channel. Making anew as a Lets Player.
•And he and Michael start dating.
•Michael had been doing Lets Plays for YEARS!!!
•He loves it a lot.
•But as Jeremy ignores him, his motivation for videos slip.
•When they have a fight where Jeremy just thinks Michael is jealous. Michael does have a panic attack and just can’t make videos because of it.
•Once it’s all resolved. Michael apologizes and promises to put more effort into his videos.
•Michael is also a big figure in the LGTB+ community (like Rich) having no shame in admitting since the very beginning.
•Once Jeremy and him start dating they start a collab channel that is them either playing games. Doing funny stuff. And vlogs.
•They are kinda of like the Dan and Phil of this universe.
•They have people guessing for months if they are dating or not.
•Till at Vidcon they are doing a panel and someone just yells at them to kiss.
•Which they do, to the surprise of MANY!
•"Man, I was having fun teasing everyone though.“
"Think of it this way, now you can kiss me anytime you want.”
-Lance used to make really shitty, low quality videos with his siblings and posted them on youtube.
*They had like 40 subscribers and they were all family members except for Hunk.
*When Lance became a paladin he started recording himself talking about his day every day so his family wouldn’t miss anything even if he never went back.
*The only one who knows he does this is Pidge, because she accidentally heard him when she was in the vents.
-Pidge is ALWAYS in the vents. She thinks they’re very useful in battle and to get information.
*She wanted to get back at Hunk for reading her diary.
*She’s still crafting her plan.
*She has some good blackmail material, tho:
~Shiro’s eyeliner actually takes about two hours to get right, that’s why he always wakes up first.
~Keith spends an hour looking at himself in the mirror and trying to fix his hair every time Lance insults it.
~Lance actually likes Keith’s hair (see: Lance talking to himself and recording it).
~Allura spends all the time she’s in her room doing weird poses on the bed and she falls at least three times per day.
~Hunk has nightmares with Iverson and will wake up screaming not to fail Lance again.
*She hasn’t been able to find anything about Coran, though.
-Keith is lactose intolerant.
*Which means he’ll eat as much dairy as he’s physically able to in space.
*Pidge thinks it’s funny. Lance has an ongoing migraine.
-They have inside jokes.
*The goo is hot and burns Hunk: “Goo, I can’t believe you would do this to me. We had a BONDING MOMENT. I CRADLED YOU IN MY ARMS.”
*Pidge and Shiro will randomly shout: “YOU KNOW YOU LOVE THOSE PEAS, DAD. "The rest of the team is very confused.
*Pidge: VOLTRON DRINKING GAME! You drink every time someone rejects Lance. Keith: Pidge, do you actually want to die? Lance screeching in the distance.
*Allura actually asked what the quiznak a British was when Pidge commented on it. Lance hasn’t stopped laughing yet.
-Hunk’s cooking abilities come from his moms, who owned a family restaurant in their hometown.
*When Lance went to visit and first ate their food he cried.
*Similar reaction to Hunk’s when he visited Lance’s family.
*The day those families get together it’ll be madness. (Hunk: Delicious madness).
-Keith and Pidge are best friends.
*They first bonded over their beef with the Galra.
*Then about being sad with no family.
*Then about how annoying Lance was.
*By the time Keith started talking about Lance more than to say he was annoying, Pidge was too invested to ignore him.
*If she has to hear one more line on Lance’s eyes she’ll murder someone, though.
-Pidge goes by both binary and non-binary pronouns.
*She doesn’t care.
*He doesn’t care.
*They don’t care.
*She’ll fucking fight you if you assume based on stereotypes.
*Someone: but you look like a boy! Pidge, wearing a "feminine” outfit: Bitch, you thought!
-Shiro loves reading.
*His favourite book is Pride and Prejudice.
*He owns a copy that looks like it’s been run over by a truck.
*Keith once tried to convince him to replace it and that was the first day he feared for his life.
-Talking about books, favourite books:
*Lance’s favourite book is The Fault in Our Stars.
~Try to talk badly about it and he’ll fight you.
~If you make a reference to it, he will cry.
~“Maybe Voltron will be our always.” “DAMN IT, PIDGE!”
*Hunk’s favourite book is a cooking book his mom got for him when he was like 8.
~He’s not much of a reader unless it has to do with cooking and or engineering.
~If he does read, he likes fantasy and romance.
~Him and Lance have cried over many fictional things over the years.
*Pidge’s favourite book is The Art of Being Normal.
~She doesn’t think the story is perfect, but it made her feel a lot of things.
~She’s also partial to sci-fi. Asimov is her god.
*Keith is a Harry Potter boy.
~He didn’t have many books in the shack.
~He’s reread them more times that he can count.
~“What do you MEAN you haven’t watched the Harry Potter movies?” “Why watch the movies when you can READ THE BOOKS?”
*Allura’s favourite is the Altean equivalent of Romeo and Juliet.
~She likes that they all die at the end.
~“They deserve it. Idiots.” “Allura, no…”
*Coran’s favourite book is the Universal Encyclopedia.
~He’s working to get Earth included because he finds humans fascinating.
~“So you just… take them in your house? Aren’t they wild animals?” “They’re just dogs.” “Incredible.”
-Lance remembers the bonding moment.
*He just said he didn’t because he was bitter Keith didn’t remember him.
*It keeps him up at night.
*“I’m such an idiot.”
-Keith remembers Lance from the Garrison.
*He didn’t at first because he was still in shock from Shiro.
*It also keeps him up at night.
*“Lance is such an idiot.”
I think its EXTREMELY important to keep in mind that you are asking a GOD or GODDESS to help you with something. This means they are not at all obligated to do exactly what you are asking of them.
So for example, if you ask Aphrodite for help in your relationship, keep in mind you are inviting the Goddess of Love into your relationship to essentially do what she feels best. If she doesn’t like the relationship her “help” may be getting you out of it even though you wanted her to help make it better. You could ask her to bring “love” into your life and she may, instead of bringing you your soulmate, teach you to love yourself.
This isn’t to ward you off from asking any deity for a favor. I just really think its important to keep in mind that what you are asking for may not come to you in the specifics that you asked. And its not out of malice or anything, I think a lot of the times they just think they know better than you and they find their way to be more helpful. Or if you’re dealing with Hermes, he just likes messing with you which you should have already realized that was probably going to happen when you went to Hermes for a favor! (Though he does still manage to be helpful even with the games he plays). But yeah, my point is before you ask, make sure you are okay with the fact that your deity may do things differently than you asked of them or they may not fulfill your request at all. Remember the gods aren’t here to serve us. They help us because they want to, not because they have to (or in Hermes case, to amuse themselves).
A concept: Kevin Day and Aaron Minyard talking mad shit about Andrew and Neil. Kevin talking about how he's sick of Andrew "pretending" he doesn't care about Exy and then Aaron replying, "I'd take that over Neil eye fucking the court every day"
i….love this….so much oh my god ok
so andrew and neil are on one of theyre “this is nothing but we go on weekend trips together to makeout” things
so kevin needs to practice bc he’s Extra™ and…he’s still having a little trouble relaxing without andrew around all the time
andrew gave aaron a look before he left that aaron knows means to watch out for kevin
aaron’s complete disinterest manages to deter kevin from practice for two full days
never underestimate aaron’s ability to be stubborn to spite someone else ok
but finally FINALLy it’s not kevin’s incessant bitching that gets aaron to go to the court with him
it’s aaron getting back from classes and not getting immediately bombarded with requests to go to the court
it’s coming home to a silent kevin staring out the window, rubbing his scars
aaron sighs deep to hide the fact that he’s concerned and changes into light workout clothes and grabs kevin
he also ignores how much kevin lights up when they turn onto the street of the foxhole court
this is an example of aaron “im not allowed to feel anything at all ever” minyard
also an example of aaron “knows where matt keeps a spare key to his truck” minyard
at first aaron refuses to practice with kevin
but he “gets bored” or whatever he likes to tell himself
see, aaron actually likes exy. he likes the way he can channel all his frustrations into it. he spends so much time studying and trying to figure out his brother and trying to figure out what the hell he wants from his life so sometimes he just needs to run around and knock people on their asses, ok?
its also pretty much the only times he can remember connecting with andrew
kevin is, like always, completely immersed, and barely notices aaron getting on the court until he walks by him to block his way to the goal
kevin’s on the courts because he can breathe there. he’s on the court because its where is mother put him. its the only place he mattered after she died, where he felt like a living thing rather than an asset.
he’s there because even though he’s happy for andrew and neil, he really is, he’s still figuring out how to stand on his own. the court’s been the only place he really felt he could do that.
now aaron may be on the court
he may have come to be there for kevin shut kevin up
but you best believe he’s gonna bitch about it
“fine, i’ll go, but i’m gonna complain the whole time” yea that’s aaron
after like one snide comment though Bitchy Kevin comes out to fuckin play and it goes a little something like:
kevin: andrew knows he’s good but does he try? of course not. see, that’d be fucking easy. that’d be simple. nothing is simple with him. *cue kevin taking an unnecessarily forceful shot on goal*
aaron: and don’t even get me started on neil just asking him for things. are you kidding. andrew doesn’t do anything ever at all and neil just??? asks him??? and he does it???
kevin: I KNOW. AS IF I HAVEN’T BEEN MAKING SIMPLE REQUESTS FOREVER.
(both of them are secretly wondering why they don’t bitch to each other more often)
the best part though, is when aaron is at the height of his rant and says, “You know, i don’t even want to do extra practice, but I’d take this over Neil eye fucking the court every goddamn day”
kevin just fucking breaks like he drops his racquet and everything
aaron hasn’t ever seen kevin laugh???? its kind of beautiful surprising??
kevin gets a hold of himself and wow
he doesn’t think he’s ever seen aaron smile he’s surprised how much he likes it
after that kevin’s feeling better
they head back to the dorms and play video games for a while, order food. just kinda hang out
nothings really changed, per se, but….things are definitely different.
more often than not now kevin will just go to the library to watch his taped games with headphones on while aaron studies, occasionally getting kicked in the shin when he gets too excited
when neither of them want to sleep because they know its one of those days they’ll have nightmares they go to the library’s 24 hr lounge and eat shitty microwave ramen (aaron is sworn to secrecy…no one can know kevin loves creamy chicken ramen) and try to teach each other bio or history
aaron only had a mother who hurt him growing up, and kevin only had the memory of his mother and people who hurt him growing up . without saying anything, they just understand.
in conclusion because aaron is accidentally really funny, kevin and him get a lot closer, which is good, cause they both kinda needed it
they wouldnt say they were friends, or are friends, but…maybe its a little “nothing” of their own
There is a girl on campus who is called Rings. Everyone thinks the name comes from the fact that she wears at least two on each finger. (She wears necklaces too, and bracelets, and many earrings, you wonder where she gets them all)
She can be found outside at a picnic table shuffling a deck of cards. (You don’t recognize any of the symbols on them)
If you walk up to her she will always ask, “Want to play a game?”
The answer no gets a shrug and usually a question as to why you are there. Many enjoy just speaking to her about their day. “She’s nice to talk to,” they say. (They don’t mention the way their eyes are drawn to the rings whenever she waves a hand. Or how hard it is to break their gaze away from how her necklaces shine in the light)
The answer yes gets a laugh and another question as to what they want to play. (Poker and blackjack are popular answers, but sometimes Go Fish is just as popular)
The next question she asks is what you will bet. If you just want a friendly game say you will bet nothing. She will smile and pull out a bag of treats and you will play with those as a reward. (Most decide to do this, she is easy to play with and the treats are safe. It is when you bet something that the game is dangerous)
Those who wish to bet something bring jewelry, songs, pictures, or anything they value. She will always match the value and the game will begin. Slowly as it goes on the bets get bigger, and sometimes people bet things they didn’t plan to. (People whisper that one person lost all of their clothing one time) The game usually ends with the bettor leaving to do something with items that they don’t think they need. (Eventually they need them though. One time someone bet their final History paper hoping to get the Bio final key. They got a ring of rose quartz instead. The next day they traded the rose quartz to a Gentry to get their friend back)
But there are those who truly wish for something more powerful. They are the foolish ones who attempt to find their friends with only the iron around their necks and salt in their pockets. They are the ones who want to get close to the Gentry to study them and want protection. (Magic is everywhere in Elsewhere but magical items are hard to obtain, and the Fae sometimes will be interested on how you got them)
They come with Virtues, favors from Fair Folk, pictures of true forms, anything worth one of Rings enchanted objects.
Sometimes she sees the fierce determination in the eyes of someone who wants their roommate back, or needs protection from a Gentry they got on the bad side of. To these she slips off a ring and without a game give it to them with a laugh and a comment that she’ll get it back later. (Those are the lucky ones, and they always end up seeing the ring she gave them back on her finger a week or so later)
Other times she looks at them and simply starts the game. Sometimes they win. Most of the time they lose. Losing is not something you want to do. (You always lose more than you think)
If you find her during a game with people who don’t look quite right, never interrupt. The stakes there are higher than you will ever know. (The cards seem to glow)
People speculate that she’s not human, but many of her accessories are made of iron. Others say she won her power from a game with the Fair Folk (They are not quite off the mark)
You find Rings at a picnic table off the near your dorm. She’s finishing up a game with one of the Chemistry majors you know. She looks at you and smiles. (You can now see why some don’t think her human) “Want to play a game?” she asks. You shake your head no. You sit down and stare at her hands shuffling the cards. You only ask one question.
A Viktuuri love child that just wants to play hockey and, "No, dad, you cannot add rhinestones to my jersey!"
“But you’d look so pretty!” Viktor whines.
“No. NO RHINESTONES.” Koichi eyes him warily, defensively covering his jersey and holding it against his chest.
“How about this?” he asked, casually fishing out a random bag of pink glitter from his pocket. There’s a long silence before Koichi lets out a high-pitched scream and makes a getaway dash towards the door and out of the room, tripping several times throughout the apartment until he (literally) runs into Yuuri in the kitchen carrying a coffee mug in one hand and a skating magazine in the other.
“Ah, what’s up kiddo?”
“Dad, dad won’t stop chasing me with glitter, PLEASE STOP HIM.”
Yuuri tries to stifle a laugh but fails. “I don’t know, you could probably pull off the sparkly shimmery look.”
“Fine. Viktor, stop chasing our son with glitter.”
“Yuuri do you want to know why his hockey games are so boring?” Viktor asks, appearing abruptly in the doorway with a huge nerf gun loaded with glitter. Koichi swallows loudly. “Obviously because everyone’s wearing the same dull outfits.”
“Viktor, you’re not going to–”
До свида́ния, boring jersey.”
Cut scene, next practice Koichi shows up at the rink sporting a jersey untastefully covered in glitter that’s painful to look at.
Most Warlocks think and act as though they know everything. The more you behave like a depraved, sociopathic murderer, the more a Warlock will feel that their preconceptions have been vindicated. You could probably use this for some benefit outside of comedic effect, but then you’d have to spend more time with them. Watching them squirm is usually worth it.
2) Act the strong, silent type
Don’t speak at all. Just stare through them. Makes them really uncomfortable, and less likely to start randomly talking about quarks. Also, it makes them think you’re paying attention when you’re not, which is useful, because listening to a Warlock lecture you on quarks is enough to put you to sleep. No one wants that.
3) Talk endlessly about your cloak, and how much better it is than their stupid robes
Pisses them off to no end, but we all know who’s got the superior wardrobe. Nothing says “hero” like a dashing cloak.
4) Offer to play the knife game with them
You know the one. They have a thing about fingers, though. And about not losing them. It’s good to instill a healthy dose of fear in your compatriots. The more they think that you’re willing to chop off your own fingers to beat them at something, the better.
The exception is Ikora. Don’t play the knife game with Ikora.
1) Be too nice
Some Warlocks are quite friendly. Others are even useful. Never let them know it.
2) Give straight answers
If you do, they start thinking they can tell you to do stuff. Never say “Yes” to anything. Preferable responses include:
3) Ask them a question unless you have a lot of free time
I saw a skeleton in the Cosmodrome once; had a sign hanging off its chest that said: “I asked a Warlock about quarks.”
I’ve been an asshole recently. I’m sorry. Hell, i didn’t want to make my own personal blog here, but people kept begging me to. I am my own person, and i have my own life.
But that’s not the point.
I really do love the creativity i see in this fandom, and the devotion people have to it. Its amazing one small game i made has had such a huge effect on the world ( well, not that large ). It’s great that more people understand that fighting isn’t always the answer ( Though I didn’t even think the game would revolve around that when i started making the game ). I really do wish this blog could coexist apart from undertale, but if you really want to talk to me about it, sure, why not. You want to make NSFW art, sure. If you want to put unique spins on undertale, that’s also ok.
