The Best™ moment in Mass Effect: Andromeda is if Ryder jumps on top of the Tempest, Kallo Jath will say “Really, Ryder?” It is the best moment, nothing else even compares to his exasperation. Nothing. Bad facial animations? Who cares? Kallo is Fed Up Wit Ya Jump Jet Bullshit™
Recently I’ve heard several stories of people having issues
with a certain goetic demon (number 39 or Mlphs).
I honestly didn’t pay any attention to it due to the fact that I 1). Don’t work
with goetic demons 2). Know that it’s
common for people to assume all demons are evil. 3). Work with demons and try
to give everyone the benefit of the doubt
However, I learned the hard way that the stories going
around about this entity were not being overly dramatized. I don’t want to give
too much detail as some of the information is not mine to share but what
I was doing a reading for someone when he showed up. He
demanded that information be passed on to the person I was doing the reading
for, and has harassed them before (I did not know this at the time). Although
he did far more than just make demands and mess with my pendulum. He drained me
of my energy to the point that I had a hard time moving for at least 10-15
minutes after he left. To make matters worse he also left a gigantic, nasty parasite
in my energy system. It took the help of a god to yank the parasite out and I
am still recovering from it.
This demon showed up of his own accord, I did not summon or
call for him, in order to not just mess with me but the person I was doing a
reading for. He made demands, tried to use me to harass the person I was doing
a reading for, drained my energy, left me with a huge parasite problem, and
threatened my companions. ON TOP OF
THAT, he later intimidated another spirit I knew but did not work with into
delivering a message along the lines of “hey I can really mess you up, work
with me or else.”
Guys please, I’m not telling you who you can and cannot work
with, but if this spirit shows up check yourself for parasites, cleanse
yourself & your space, if you can call for help, and put up as many wards
as you can. He shouldn’t be trusted and does NOT have your best interest in
Derek Hale, Earl of Osterbrook, has inherited, following the death of Lord Montfort, a run down house in Yorkshire he neither needs nor wants, convinced his staff are robbing him, and with the mystery of a missing ward, he manages to get himself talked into a ridiculous bet, that he cannot pass as a steward until Midwinter, nearly two months away. So can he maintain the charade? Find the missing child? And manage to turn the shambles of a house around, or will he give up and let Peter take the thousand pounds he bet.
Derek is a simple horseman from the mountains, Stiles is an enthusiastic university graduate ready to make a name for himself. In any other situation, they would have gone their entire lives never having met. It’s probably a good thing then, that they both happened to be in the wrong place at the right time.
Stiles wakes up and suddenly the war is over, he’s no longer a penniless mage, and living in an exquisite manor married to the man he’s been in love with for far too long.
“It’ll be fine,” Stiles says gallantly. “I am certain I will just fall in love with my husband all over again, and I will find plenty of joy doing that.” He winks at Derek for good measure. Derek blinks.
Derek doesn’t expect much from his arranged marriage. When his inattentive husband, Lord Stiles Stilinski, tells him he’s free to look for a lover, he doesn’t know where to start, until a dashing bandit named the Red Fox catches his eye. ~ The Fox winks again. “Have a good night, Derek,” he purrs in a sultry tone, and then climbs back on the horse and disappears into the night. Derek walks up the path towards the manor in a daze, and it isn’t until he’s inside when he realizes he never told the Fox his name or where he lived.
Stiles was always a sick child. He was never supposed to live beyond his infancy—shocking many when he reaches adulthood. With his inevitable death looming over his country, Stiles chooses to accept a successor through marriage. His advisors commission a painter to capture the prince’s likeness in order to advertise him to potential candidates. Only, Derek Hale isn’t like most painters—or humans, for that matter.
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single alpha in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a mate.
Whether or not Derek Hale felt that way was hardly a concern to the neighborhood — the very fact of his arrival was enough that the surrounding families seemed to consider him the rightful property of one or another of their eligible sons and daughters. That was, of course, before they met the man.
Stiles is an omega who is bullied by his beta stepmother into wearing a dress during the day, so when his new suitor turns out to be painfully shy around society he pretends to be a servant girl (a homely one) to get to know the real person, whilst his step mother tries to marry her alpha daughter to her omega ward despite neither of them want it, and the sheriff (called Josiah) tries to remain constantly drunk for the entire weekend.
Stiles Stilinski has lived 19 years without revealing his secret. He’s a fine gentleman, a stellar horseman, and a sassy addition to any conversation, but he keeps his true feelings to himself. When the Hale family moves into the county, the Stilinski’s throw a ball in their honor and Stiles in swept up into the gravity of the eldest son. Propriety tells him to keep his distance, but can he ignore the urges pulling them ever closer? At first sight, Stiles is already undone.
What are your opinions on John winchester... just my curiosity spiking?
Oh boy, that one.
I think he was a bad, neglectful parent. But I don’t agree with the pretty wide-spread characterization of him as a total demonic, drunk asshole who hates his kids’ guts and beats them up. I don’t think John actually beat them up – not on a regular basis, at least? I could maybe see arguments getting heated and violent, but not so much of a constant smackdown for every small mistake. He might have put them down verbally, if the Impala comment to Dean in the end of s1 was anything to go by… we all know Dean would never let Baby get rust or anything :(
I think he, kinda, destroyed them emotionally and totally didn’t provide enough support. He loved Sam and Dean, I’m pretty sure – but love alone’s not enough. He was a traumatized, scared man who wasn’t in the place to raise kids. I know it turned out that this childhood was the only way Sam and Dean could save the world. If they were raised happy and safe without any training and only ever becoming close with each other in their formative years, I doubt they could foil Lucifer’s plans that were thousands of years in the making in Swan Song. But John had no way of knowing that, so, that’s no excuse!
Also, that face that Dean makes in the Dark Side of the Moon when talking about John…
Yeah, that one. Poor guy. From the looks of it, John would never let them be kids, especially not Dean with his parentification burden. I could maybe understand wanting your kids to be ready if you know monsters are coming for them. But, damn, he could’ve stayed with them. Teach them how to shoot a gun if you really gotta, but you can also play catch with them and read them bedtime stories, yanno.
I have so many feelings about Carlos and how poorly his character is treated, like, he was reduced to Forced Het and convenient sidekick. He almost reminds me of how Winn is treated in supergirl? He’s been through trauma related to his parent that’s never addressed and his intelligence is only addressed when it’s convenient to the other leads. His line in ways to be wicked and his answer to mal’s ‘don’t you miss it’ remark could’ve been developed so much more, his character has so much more potential.
listen i kinda can’t wait till they bring in j*rdan because you just know maia is going to go Off like i just can’t wait to see what she says because it’s gonna be amazing like i hope she murders him on sight
It's interesting to see so many people acting like they can only enjoy Damien as a character if he's "redeemable" or he "can't help it." Back in my day, we just liked the trash characters without having to justify it like that. I love Damien, but he's pretty awful, and that's part of why I like him. I hope he suffers a lo, because holy bad decisions Batman! But I honestly don't want him redeemed in the traditional sense if at all. He's fictional—it's okay to like him even if he stays an asshole!
YES. I completely agree. Damien makes absolutely terrible decisions and that’s why I enjoy writing him. He’s awful. It’s okay to like him even if he’s awful. It’s also okay to want to see him redeemed because I think it’s lovely to see the best in people. But liking a terrible fictional character is not a problem as long as you know they’re terrible, imo.
“I love me a good street fight, but beatin’ somebody who ain’t gonna beat back is just bad game. Now go fuck ya self kindly.”
Remember when Vinny didn’t care about anything? Well
I mean this is just a quick sketch but I realised how much people liked Vinny, and I didn’t understand why because the way I had left him before made him seem like a coldass who lived for fights and drama and didn’t give a shit about anybody. And then I started wondering, well. Is he always like that? The answer is mostly. But not always. Anyway, I guess I wanted to show a side of him from a time when he maybe cared a little more about himself and other people.
I just finished Ryuji’s rank 8 event and…I honestly think that at this point Akira would step in and stop the guys from pummeling him. I mean I get it, it’s kinda funny that event gets Ryuji the endure skill, but c'mon Akira.
Can we not rehash the discussion about GM? like really I thought we settled this years ago…he’s a glorified pos. Move on. There are some great trainers out there that are talented riders, helpful teachers, AND decent human beings!! What a concept!! Let’s talk about them instead! If I never hear the name GM again, it will be too soon.
ok so- what would happen if izuku was actually caught? and unable to get himself out? i imagine it would elicit a strange psychological response because from what i've seen no matter what izuku does, he's always had control over the situation or had the upper hand in some way. what if class 1-A had to rescue him? sorry i'm just really freaking invested in this au and like to throw around ideas.
hello anon!!! this is a really good question. you just hit the nail on the fucking head.
almost everything we’ve seen of villain!izuku so far, it’s in a situation that izuku himself has carefully planned, arranged, or manipulated. he maintains his position of relative power by keeping the people around him off-balance and always on the back foot. and with the traps & strategies he sets up, it wouldn’t be much of a stretch to think that izuku could manipulate most of the encounters he has. he’s like a celebrity legend of a villain, too; he’d have to cultivate a certain impression for that, too. anyways, what i’m saying is, izuku is canny and very good at strategizing and maneuvering in the social sense.
i think he does this because a) having the upper hand / being in the control means he’s safe, and b) if he can manipulate how other people see him, he can make them like him, and he wants to be loved.
that…speaks of a bad childhood. one where izuku was always unsafe or under threat unless he was able to maneuver himself into a more powerful position of negotiation, and one where izuku didn’t get the kind of love and support that a growing child needs. one where izuku learned that being himself was never going to get him what he needed.
so, in the theoretical situation where izuku is well and truly trapped – well. he doesn’t have anything anymore. he’s a villain; and before that, he was just another kid from the gutter. he doesn’t have a safety net. he doesn’t have anyone waiting for him. in this situation, he only has someone who hates him enough to trap him like this, or someone who is only using him and doesn’t care about him at all.
and without any hope there, izuku wouldn’t have any reason to put on any pretense. there’s nothing he can do anymore. i’m not sure exactly what he would do. maybe he would scream, or cry, or – since nothing matters anymore – throw the last of his resources and energy into hurting the person who has trapped and hurt him like this. but whoever class 1-a comes to rescue, it’s someone scared; someone resigned; someone backed into a corner who knows down to their bones that there’s no one coming, no one who will help him, no one who can save him but himself.
it’s izuku as he really is, with all his defenses stripped away.
