I’m sleeping over at my friend’s flat from university after study group and just got woken up in the middle of the night by their roommate, who is sitting in the kitchen, listening very loudly to the dirty dancing soundtrack and crying. Like wtf, I didn’t even know they had a roommate and normally I would yell at you but damn you are cute. You really need to stop tho dude, its 4am, some people in this house want to sleep AU
I am a barista and you are a customer who comes in every day and orders the same thing and today my friend brought you with them, I didn’t even know we had mutual friends and WHAT DO YOU MEAN THAT IS NOT ACTUALLY YOUR NAME HAVE I REALLY BEEN WRITING A NAME THAT IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO YOURS ON YOUR CUPS FOR OVER HALF A YEAR WHY HAVE YOU NEVER CORRECTED ME AU
The house party me and my friends threw kinda escalated and after throwing out everyone I found this half naked person passed out in my bed but I can’t be bothered to wake them up now so I’m just gonna go to sleep and deal with it in the morning, they are kind of cute anyway AU
(or alternatively) I just woke up in a stranger’s bed and I’m half naked, I cant remember anything about yesterday besides that the party was great and that I got absolutely wasted AND OH MY GOD THERE IS A HOT PERSON NEXT TO ME IN BED AND THEY ARE NOT WEARING MUCH WHAT DID WE DO YESTERDAY AU
You are my new coworker and I’m pretty sure I’ve never met you SO WHY ARE YOU LOOKING SO FAMILIAR FUCK I THINK YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE ANGSTY EMO KIDS I USED TO STALK BACK IN THE MYSPACE DAYS I CANT BELIEVE THIS AU
We work out at the same gym and you are my declared rival because we have the same workout routine and you are always better than me and on my way to the locker room I passed you in the shower where you were singing the opening of hannah montana and I can still hear you and you switched to the lion king now and even though I hate you I think I am kind of in love with you AU
I’m hiding in the bathroom of a restaurant from a spectacularly awful tinder date and you are in a similar situation because a guy at the bar just won’t stop hitting on you and now we are planning an epic escape together even though we only met ten minutes ago AU
What's the story behind the guy calling you a petulant whore??
Oh good lord, that was from awhile ago. I GUESS WE’RE DUE FOR A STORYTIME?
I was in an online D&D group with a bunch of guys in 2016. DM was a woman, and I was the only woman player. Some of the guys were particularly awful, and liked to bully her around since she was a new DM, and make a lot of nasty jokes about me and my character being female (sexual jokes, mainly). Even when I asked them not to, they shrugged me off. They also promoted this belief that women were inherently stupid at D&D, and that I didn’t know what I was doing. I could’ve left, but I refused to have them run me off, and instead had my character go full campaign villain on them. So now they had to fight against this “woman who doesn’t know what she’s doing” - except I had more gaming experience than all of them combined, which proved troublesome for them. Since all this happened, all of the other guys have come to me and apologized for their behaviors. Well, all except one.
ONE PARTICULAR DOUCHECANOE, the one who had been the worst the entire time, was so overwhelmingly outraged by this. He was really bad at doing anything game-related that wasn’t just rolling a dice. He couldn’t think outside the box, he was terrible at puzzles, he also didn’t like communication. Well, on his last day in the group, he was also really shit at rolling dice too - luck was not on his side. He tried to take me on without any of the rest of the party, or without prepping himself whatsoever. When he rolled badly, he demanded rerolls, making a fuss that it wasn’t fair that I was winning, much to the annoyance of even the other guys. I went way easy on him, picked spells and things that were level 1 or 2 instead of the 5 or 6 I COULD’VE done… and he still ended up losing miserably. He ragequit at this point, and screeched, in front of everyone, that I was a “petulant whore” before leaving.
We have some mutual friends, so someone, somewhere, let him know that I’d been using “petulant whore” as a joking pet-name, since it’s the most fucking hilarious thing on the planet. He did not like it. He’s still mad, but I can live with that.
I have parts of that whole “Island Prianna” campaign logged in my D&D posts on this tumblr, mostly the moments that were worth noting (that battle wasn’t, it was so boring and annoying to have someone constantly trying to break the rules). But yeah. That’s the story.
Hi there! Just wanted to to say that I absolutely love your fics, The Predator is my absolute fav right now! I didn't want to ask for spoilers because I like to be surprised, but can you share one head-cannon you have for Predator Olicity ?
Oh boy! Since I’ve been away for so long, I’ll give you a good one:
Now that we all know how badly Oliver’s family life sucked, and how understandably reluctant he is to begin something new, and how much he’s seen marriages be mocked in his world, he doesn’t believe in them - in marriages. He doesn’t have a family ring, nor has he ever wanted one. He’s believed he’ll live alone and die alone.
Plan - Live alone, die alone.
Enter Felicity Smoak (adult version).
Epic plan fail.
So, in the not-so-near future, he doesn’t buy her a ring. (He’s seen many women remove rings and sleep around, many men do the same).
Nope. He doesn’t believe in rings.
He doesn’t buy her a ring.
Instead, he gets her name tattooed on his finger in a ring.
Because there is nothing more permanent than that.
Because he’s claimed her and been claimed by her and he’s got no shame in it. Because every time a woman looks at him he wants her to know he’s not available. Because every time he sees her brand upon his skin, it reminds him that he’s not alone, that there is one amazing woman who loves every broken, ugly part of him and takes his demons for her own.
She tatoooed herself on his soul. So, he gets her tattooed on his flesh.
i know u guys don’t know any of the songs so i’ll explain everything i mention under the cut!!!
Song I wish was longer: Luke’s Good Kid Reprise (listen i know it’s part of The Last Day of Summer but like. It should get to exist in its own right). but if we’re talking full songs, probably Strong. Song I wish was shorter: The Last Day of Summer (except Luke’s part) The one song I always skip: um there’s no soundtrack yet but i could probably go without Drive. or The Oracle. Song I sing the best: Good Kid is the only one I’ve tried but i sound p good i guess. I’ve also sung the only 3 words of Son of Poseidon that i know and they are right in my range god bless Song I still don’t know all the words to: fucking….all of them. i want to know the words to my grand plan tho Song that honestly deserves an award or five: my grand plan Song that’s terrible but I still love: Lost! (it’s not bad at all it’s just a little cheesy haha. honestly one of my favorite songs) Song that’s really good but I hate: i loved them all! Song I think could change the world: good kid Song I wish I’d written: the tree on the hill
Also shoutout to other songs that were great but i didn’t mention: DOA, The Campfire Song, and Another Terrible Day!
The 2Ps were starting their meeting, but as they all seated, a loud 'PFFFFPT' came from 2P Russia's seat. It turns out there's a woobie cushion on his seat. That's not all, every other 2P's seat, except for 2P Russia and 2P Prussia's seat, as super glue on it. So basically, all of the seats, except the two said characters, butts are superglued to their chair. Spoilers: The culprit is 2P China, his plan failed epically, though.
(Would 9/10 do this irl)
2p Italy: “Would someone care to explain why I am glued to this fucking chair?!?!”
2p Germany: “Damn even I wouldn’t be able to come up with this!”
2p Italy: “Si because your brain is microscopic.”
/eruption of oooooh’s from America, China, and Canada/
2p Japan: “What moron would possibly even pull this kind of prank?!”
2p Romano: “tHESE PANTS WERE MY BEST” /is ready to cut a bitch/
2p Spain: “Flavio shut the fuck up no one cares.”
2p Romano: “Spagnaaaaaa!! ;-;”
2p Prussia: /breathes the greatest sigh of relief. Purest of cinnamon rolls/
2p America: “Gotta give props to whoever did this but wHO THOUGHT THAT THIS WAS FUNNY?!” /is ready to knock a bitch outta the ballpark/
2p England: “Awww I liked these cushions ;-;”
2p France: “No one cares about the fucking cushions, Oliver.”
2p England: “France. That was not a very nice thing to say. Take it back. Now.”
2p France: “Tch whatever.”
2p America: “Ya know, China’s been awfully quiet. Got something on your mind?”
2p China: “Nahhhh just…shocked that someone managed to do this.”
Mun: “Dude stop fucking lyin I know you did it. Got you on video.”
2p China: OuO;
2p America: “yOU ASSHOLE I THOUGHT WE WERE FRIENDS!!”
2p Italy: I’m going to fucking kill you!!!“
2p Romano: "You murdered my pants!!!”
2p Russia: “That was not very mature of you.”
2p Canada: “And this is why I stay in the fucking woods like a sensible person.”
Mun: It was at this moment China knew he fucked up and caused World War 3.
Decided to jam in as much worldbuilding as possible in this page. It’s barely visible here, but the cubic spacecraft in the third panel on the bottom were from an earlier draft, much of which was cut out (drunk Chinese supersoldiers on Mars! I’m so sorry I neglected you!), so I’m happy to stuff them in here.
The front of the cube is three pairs of massive carbon nanotube gyroscopes (kinda like here) together they control most of the orientation in space, plus they act like flywheels for energy storage. The cube has some small rockets for orientation, but it’s generally left up to the beefy gyros. This means that they can change orientations REALLY quickly. So they have the benefits of sloped armor no matter what direction enemy missiles and lasers attack at.
They might also have some shapeshifting capabilites, extending whipple shields and stuff like that, but mostly these things are known for reorienting themselves really quickly and maneuvering their main engine wherever they want before you realize it. And they’re called Jackrabbits. Because ADA makes them and ADA loves bunnies.
That’s one secret to “deep” worldbuilding, by the way. Have a huge epic planned out and then cut it down to six 26-page comics.
Happy Easter if you celebrate it! If not, have a nice day!
