“And I want you to seduce me,” she said. “Everywhere we go.”
“Seduce you?” He echoed.
“Yes,” she nodded.
He looked like he was trying not to laugh. It was a new expression on him, one that she hadn’t seen before. She decided that she liked it. “How would you like to be seduced?” He asked.
She couldn’t help the blush that spread across her face and ears, but she held her head high and tried to sound confident.
“Oh, I’m not picky,” she shrugged, “I just want you to use your imagination. Whatever’s in your head.”
He looked at her.
“You’re in my head.”
An awareness struck her of just how much he meant what he said. She felt the evidence of how profoundly they had changed each other – how they had carved themselves into the fabric of their beings, how they had become irreplaceable in each other’s lives. She saw it through their bond, and through his words, and through his eyes.
I commissioned this gorgeous image after reading chapter 53 of one of the best fanfics out there. I envisioned a future where Rey and Kylo are hopefully trying to seduce each other after the conclusion of the story. ;) Thank to @dustoftheancients for creating such a wonderfully developed and suspenseful work that I wish I would have stumbled upon sooner. And this piece would not have been possible without @panda-capuccino and her inspiring artistry.
Context: This is our third session, and our party consists of a Drow Druid, a Human Sorceress, a Tiefling Bard (me) and a Grey Elf Druid. Our previous shopping adventures resulted in the Elf Druid picking up a lacey pink parasol, complete with ethereal spider pals. We have just returned to Waterdeep, and are looking around the markets there. Eventually we decide to pop in at an Apothecary shop.
Human Sorceress (OOC): Okay, but is there a fancy apothecary shop, or are they all, like, some run down potion shop?
DM: There is Jim’s Apothecary, and down the street, you see Jimbob’s Fantasical Amazing Apothecary. It is clearly high end.
HS: Let’s go to that one. Jimbob’s Amazingly Fantastical Apothecary.
The party follows. Immediately, the Sorceress takes the shopkeep aside and is looking for something secretive. The DM and player literally leave the room. They return, exchange a potion for a good bit of silver, and the shopkeep finally turns his attention to the rest of us asks if he can help anyone else.
Tiefling Bard: You got any free samples?
The table bursts out laughing. The DM looks surprised.
Elf Druid (OOC): Oh my god…
TB: What? I like free samples.
The shopkeep gives my character a quicksilver worm that dissolves and exudes a flowery fragrance within 30 ft of my character for literally 12 hours. Amazing. He is thrilled!
Drow Druid, who has only just recovered from being black out drunk: You got anything else for free?
Shopkeep, side-eyeing her: You look like you could use this.
He gives her what the DM defines as the “magical equivalent to 5-hour energy” and she gets +1 to initiative in addition to her hangover being removed. The potion is however, ridiculously priced, and our party absolutely learned to ask for free samples everywhere we go now.
post is going to be a longer one but with different sections to break
it up a bit, per loose theory bits and I’ll try and keep it
organized. Includes images woo! Gifs
and images are compiled by me (first tries at video gifs yay). But
without further ado!
At PAX Anti sported two, very deliberately, neck stab wounds. Maybe
from one jab, maybe two. (That
they are stab wounds is sortof confirmed by a post from @wubkins that
placement is rather suspicious, its right where the vocal cords are.
Most likely to shut Jack up and to not get interrupted during his
little message to us (but Jack did try though with a very broken
‘Help me’). And
Anti probably doesn’t need vocal cords anyway since he is most likely
some kind of spirit/ghost/entity
capable of 'out of body’ speech.
kind of being could he be? The Tulpa has been going around as a
theory and Jack himself has said that it’s fairly accurate (answered
in an ask). A section of the Wikipedia page about it gives this bit:
the part of a real being’ is the part that creeps me out the most.
Anti pretending to be Jack, slowly taking over the channel. People
find it difficult to distinguish between them.
despite Anti being the chameleon that he is, he is not flawless in
his doings. He gets impatient very quickly, is often very rude and
more aggressive than Jack. Absolutely loves violence. Going as far as
wanting to chop off fingers for fun (EVERYTHING IS AGONY | Clone
where did Anti come from? Another part of the Wikipedia page says
that Tulpa’s are generated by a powerful concentration of thought.
Who’s thoughts in the case of Anti? The community? It might have
started when the community started drawing/imagining/writing about a
counterpart to Jack, his anti version. That was most likely the start
of the inevitable snowball that accelerated during the October of
2016 and on Halloween itself Anti 'solidified’, was powerful enough,
thanks to the attention the community gave him, to take over. “You
could have stopped me, but you just watched, as this happened”.
then proceeds to brag about Jack being gone forever but that might
not be the case. Anti has taken over Jacks body but Jack is still
around, in the background, crying out for help. Or in the case of the
intro of EVERYTHING IS AGONY | Clone Drone #5, shouting stuff to Anti
about what not to do. Two 'souls’ in one body kind of thing.
Glitchverse and dimension breaking. What exactly are the glitches
that Anti is doing? Just video glitches or something more.
like his 'green’ dimension a lot, as well as fades/cuts to black.
During these bits the viewer can’t see what is happening. During
these blackouts the switch between Jack and Anti seems to happen a
lot. Also during the blackout of the Detention episode the character
went through a door with doors usually being the symbol for gateways.
Might be a far stretch with the blackouts but it has happened quite a
few times. Down below are gifs of the several blackouts, in
chronological order of appearance.
4. Anti’s message at PAX. Ohboy.
This was just brilliant. I attended the livestream and when Jack
mentioned the participation thing, I too grabbed my phone to start
recording but then Anti said hi. After finishing recording and
getting hyped from that and watching the panel itself I did not think
much of it at first. But the day after I realized something, why did
Anti wanted that we record him…? Now I don’t know if there are any
Whovians around but my mind immediately strayed to the Doctor Who
episodes of the The Time of Angels, where a recording of a Weeping
Angel came to life. Quoting the Doctor: 'That which holds the image
of an angel becomes itself an angel’.
if that’s the case with Anti, well, he’s probably just be grinning
his ass off of the fact that we just multiplied him everywhere. And
are we going to delete that footage? Not likely. It was too much
hype. But watch your back.
'͞I͝'͝m ̛not ̕going ̀a͘nywher̡é,́ I̧'́m̨ a̶l͡wa͏y͜s t͜hére, ͏a͘l̶w͟ays̛ ̧wàt͝c͟h͞i̸ng̀'͘.
glitch video montage.
Gif is at 50% percent of original speed, my
brain is molten from seeing it at full speed too many times haha. @amycampbell00 did an amazing job at splicing the segment down, frame
by frame, game by game over here.
quite odd to think that Clustertruck, Totally Accurate Battle
Simulator and Happy Wheels are in this compilation since it’s before
the Halloween event but if Anti has been lurking around for some time
then these series are perfect. Why? Clustertruck is a high energy
game and Jack has mentioned that he gets all pumped up from it. Anti
could sneakishly drain this energy from him, tiny piece by piece
since he probably wouldn’t miss it anyway.
TABS and Happy Wheels? Well… Death, violence and gore. Again, Anti
getting energy from this.
what if the other games in the montage are the series that Anti has
played/is playing. The Japan World Cup is probably one of the
distraction ones, just like the Pipe Job one with a sneaky Anti at
Portal Collab and Don’t Starve ones have gotten me a tiny bit worried
about Jacks friends. If they can’t tell the difference then, yikes,
I’m still trying to figure out the message of the montage. The
different audio segments. My feeble guess at what he says?
ha, ha. Jack is dead, bitch. Now I’m terrified.’
part makes kind of sense, second part, not so much. I’ve listened to
the segment a heap load of times now but I’m not getting much wiser
these are my Anti theory bits for now. To
anyone reading this, thank you. Also, have a cookie!
free to share your thoughts about things.
It’s a lot of fun going through all the theories that people have
come up with so far and it gets me all excited. Good for story
inspiration stuff too.
It seems that Harry has managed to coerce his favorite Slytherin into sharing a muggle photo booth. Draco didn’t really mind (he never went against taking photographs) until he noticed that amongst them was a certain, third wheel…
“ Seriously, Potter? Must you bring that overgrown ribbon with us everywhere we go?”
“Let him be, Draco; he’s just a baby. And plus- he’s always saying how much he likes you.”
Guns were firing into the air and people were yelling out. He could tell there was only one guy taking out the pirates. One guy was doing this? That was insane, but he had been hearing stories about some man named, Snow White. He was deadly apparently, so Jake didn’t want to get caught up in the mess of people here.
He hid, breathing heavily as this battle ran on, and it seemed to run on for forever. Once he noticed that the battle had stopped, he gripped onto his pistol and held it up, slowly standing up and peaking around the corner. Some of the pirates that were still alive were in a panic, running around, screaming for their leader.
He slowly moved out, looking for any way to get out of his situation. This was not a good spot, behind enemy lines and in the heart of their base. The leader was here somewhere, hiding, waiting out, or worse, dead. If he was dead then these pirates probably would be willing to blast him without a second thought, even if he was alive then they might do that anyway.
Jake found himself inside a building, seeing dead bodies around and deciding that he should probably follow them to find a way out. If Snow White had come this way, there was probably a way out. There had to be. After a second, Jake found himself tripping over a body. He turned to face it, seeing it was still breathing, barely. This must be their leader.
“You…you alright? Sir, do you need help?” He asked. “I understand a bit of medical treatment and it seems you didn’t get shot. I can help stitch up this wound and get you feeling better. It’s serious, but I think I can help.” He said to the man, hoping that he was even awake to hear him.
Wow nonbinary people are amazing. Everywhere we go we see the gender binary enforcing itself on us and squeezing its way into every bit of our consciousness but still nonbinary people exist! Despite everything, you’re here, ruining that binary and proving it wrong! And wow are you amazing for it 💛💜🖤
This is Rickie. He is a 9 year old Japanese Chin rescue. Rickie loves to sunbathe and cuddle. He isn’t very dog friendly but he still gets to go everywhere with us. When we go hiking, he gets to ride in a doggie pack like a little prince. He has 2 other dog sisters, a Bloodhound and a Yorkie mix (who he’s the boss of). He loves the Yorkie mix but he is not a fan of his bloodhound sister because she slobbers all over him. He’s funny and sassy and believes he’s royal.
Well if you think about it, our phones are one of the few objects on our person at all times. It is our connection to a larger world, we have an infinite amount of knowledge in our pockets at all times. We also have Neko Atsume. But that’s not the point.
The point is, when an object like that is with us 24/7, it can pick up a lot of residual energy, both positive and negative. But when it becomes so clogged with energy, it becomes this source of blockage, and we carry this extra weight with us everywhere we go.
So if you feel weighed down, consider cleansing you phone.
Ways to cleanse:
Delete old contacts. Focus on reconnecting with those who mean the most
Delete old pictures. Upload some of your favorites to Google Drive and have them printed off. Sure, there’s always Facebook, but having a few physical photos around can really lift the mood of your space.
Get rid of old apps. Not only are they clogging your memory, but they can also be a huge time suck. I am hella guilty of this, especially with game/puzzle apps.
Take the time to organize your apps into folders. It will help you find what you need faster.
Change up your wallpaper, ringtones, and text alerts. We can become so used to a particular sound that it goes unnoticed.
If you need a deeper cleansing, replace a cracked phone screen or broken case. I like to get some cheap cases in a solid color and then play with different designs.
Lastly, set a crystal of your choice on top of your phone while it charges, to infuse the positive energy into it.
And that’s it! Hope this gives you some ideas on how to clean up your phone. Add some of your favorites too!
[TRANS] Haru Hana Vol. 41 Issue ‘Interview with NCT 127′
NCT127 who were the last to appear on stage at the 68th ‘Sapporo Snow KPOP Festival’ held on the 12th of February. Because of their Japanese member, Yuta, we were able to hear their stories on their first time in Hokkaido.
Q: What did you do in Sopporo? Taeyong: We saw the snow and everyone played like kids. Doyoung: We haven’t seen snow in a while and everywhere we go there’s piled up snow, we played happily. We also wanted to show our fans this scenery, so we took photos and shared them on SNS.
Q: What did you eat? Mark: Ramen. Taeyong: Shabu-shabu and sushi. Yuta: Can I speak Japanese? It was my first time eating miso ramen in Sapporo, it really is delicious, everyone all ate like they were possessed by a hungry demon.
Q: During your concert, Taeyong performed Kotori Yoshino’s gag, who showed it to him? Yuta: I showed it to him, and he seemed to like it a lot, so he decided to do it once.
Q: Yuta also worked hard to be the MC. Yuta: Normally it’s hard for me to express my feelings in Korean, but I can freely do so in Japanese, so I want to talk more and interact more, ad libs just comes out.
Q: How did the other members feel after watching Yuta? Johnny:This was my first time coming to Japan with Yuta, and because he was so used to Korea, I thought he is almost a Korean. But after seeing him in Japan I thought ‘ah, (he’s) Japanese’. Mark: That’s right, that’s right Taeyong: He came to Japan and did various things well. (He) organised our food menu as well. Haechan: When we arrived in Japan and asked about things we didn’t know, Yuta hyung helped us. Jaehyun: During the show when we were doing the ment, I also asked questions, Yuta hyung overcame it all.
Q: I am going to bring up a unique fashion topic, what kind of style of plain clothes do you like? Winwin: I like clothes that are clean (bright) and smart. Doyoung: I like comfortable clothes. Casual clothes. Taeil: For me, training wear. I really like being comfortable. Yuta: I like (wearing) entirely black. Or all black. Jaehyun: I like all kinds of colours. I also like anything monotone, simple but with a point. Haechan: I like comfortable clothes~ Taeyong: I like baggy clothes. For example, a t-shirt that I have at home for 5 years. Mark: It differs depending on how I feel. I pick clothes according to how I feel. Johnny: I also wear clothes depending on how I feel that day, I pick clothes that can express my feelings.
Q: Which member cares about their fashion the most? Mark: I think it’s Winwin hyung. Yuta: Isn’t it fashion terrorist Winwin? Doyoung: It’s high fashion (as in high fashion sense). Taeil: You will be surprised when you see it.
Q: What goals would you like to achieve in 2017? Taeyong: We would like to have more activities in Japan, and in Korea of course. Yuta: There will be a lot of chances this year to come to Japan so please look forward to them.
