easy play

4

I heard that Mr. Neill Blomkamp only had you in mind for the role. Did this make it easy for you to play the character or did this put more pressure on you? It was very flattering. I just came on and he was like “I want you to do you, just bring what you want to the role.”  I was like “Really?” It was incredible because you’ve got a guy that exactly knows what he wants but he trusts in his actors incredibly. So we’ve got to come on and have a really good time and play, so I didn’t really feel the pressure.

Playing with a lazer and a cat – Voltron level

WELL, @klanced made me do this sketch ; and then @loveanimationfan came up with this idea and…

Here is the Lance & Blue comic I promised !
Omg I spent way too much time on this …
I really LOVE to draw Lance & Blue <3 My fav paladin & Lion.
(And yes, Paladins playing with their lions would be the cutest thing.)
(I will definitely draw more lion stuff.)

PERALTIAGO APPRECIATION WEEK | Day 2: Favorite Funny Moments
That’s one of my least favorite roles that women fill on TV shows — the killjoy who tells the goofy fun guy to knock it off. We consciously tried to avoid that dynamic — we had them like each other, treat each other like peers, seek advice from each other, and (maybe most importantly) we made them both screw up a lot, albeit in different ways. Melissa and Andy make it easy, though, by playing their scenes not like “fun-time Charlie and his mean schoolmarm watchdog” but like two real humans who tease each other. - Michael Schur on Amy’s relationship with Jake

Someone wanted process on FB (there’s not much unfortunately plus there’s that whole weird skip where there was a lot of layering/overlaying/curve using).

i really get pissy when people complain about “easy modes” or other additions to games that make it easier for people to play

literally, who the fuck does it hurt if there are easy modes?  Not everyone plays games to punish themselves or to test themselves.  Some people just want story and and enjoyable experience.  Some people might have certain levels of capability too that would prevent them from playing the game at a certain difficulty level.  Either way, you don’t have to use those additions, so why are you so mad??

oh, never mind, i know why.  “gamers” are so territorial that they can’t possibly handle the idea that “casual” players are “tainting” their space, so they turn to belittling and shaming people who want or need easier levels of difficulty.  Can’t have anyone not like us in the group eh lads

Tbh I really appreciate Justin being thoughtful enough about his character and the game mechanics in general to grow Taako from “I’m dumb as hell” to aloof-and-silly-but-wildly-clever.

It would have been real easy to just keep playing Taako as a moron for The Goofs, but the development in his character to account for tone and gameplay has turned Taako into a much more fun and multi-faceted character who is both pragmatic and thoughtful, selfish and deeply loyal, chaotic and brilliant. He is contradictory and changeable, like all of us.

He’s someone who is clever enough to find ways to have his cake and eat it, too, and sometimes is the only one risky and creative and Weird enough to find the solution that will save someone’s ass, or salvage someone’s world, or get him the Dopest fucking sword that has ever existed.

Anyway, thanks Justin for My Son.

Rings

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.

“How do I become a card dealer?”

She grins.

the most room in our hearts

So all things considered, Will really thinks he’s a pretty strong guy.

He lifts weights on a regular basis. He’s been working on lobster boats since he was fourteen, and that’s not easy work. He plays defense on an NCAA hockey team and takes checks from huge, angry dudes all the fucking time, and gets right back up to hit back. He’s a strong guy, is what he’s saying.

But this? This is not fair.

The this in question is Derek fucking Nurse, sitting on a picnic blanket in Will’s backyard, while Will’s little cousins crawl all over him. Katie and Ava are sitting on either side of him, jabbering about something, while Conor hangs off his shoulders. Nursey has Gracie in one arm and is gently breaking up an argument between Sean and Aiden over a toy truck.

“Billy, are you even listening to me?”

Will jolts himself back to the present as Megan punches him in the shoulder. “Don’t call me Billy,” he says, automatic, and then blinks. “I mean, what?”

Megan snorts, pushing her hair off her face. Like a number of his cousins, she’s more of a strawberry blonde than a proper redhead, but she still has just as many freckles as he does. “Dude,” she says. “Are you even trying to be subtle?”
