🚨 The internet needs you 🚨

You’re up again, Tumblr. 

Back in 2015 you demanded that the FCC adopt strict net neutrality rules and establish a free and open internet. And you won

That should’ve been the end of it. But apparently not.

The new head of the FCC wants to undo the net neutrality protections you fought so hard for.

His proposed changes open the door to your web traffic being slowed down, or even blocked altogether. You could be forced to pay extra to use your favorite apps. You could even be prevented from getting news from the sources you trust.

Title II protects consumers and democracy by ensuring all voices can be heard.

You know the drill. Here’s what to do:

The FCC is taking comments from the public, and dearfcc.org is making it as simple as possible for you to make your voice heard.

Go there now 👉 dearfcc.org ✌️

You’ll just need to provide a name, an address, and then say a little bit about why rolling back Title II protections is a bad idea. If you’re not quite sure what to write, here’s something to get you started:

I’m writing to urge you to keep our Open Internet rules based on Title II in place. Without them, we could lose the internet as we know it.

The proposed changes to FCC rules would allow fast lanes for sites that pay, and force everyone else into slow lanes. We’ve already seen access to streaming services like Netflix, popular games like League of Legends, and communication platforms like FaceTime slowed down, or even blocked. Conditions like this hurt businesses large and small, and penalize the users who patronize them. 

The changes also open the door to unfair taxes on internet users, and could also make it harder for blogs, nonprofits, artists, and others who can’t pay up to have their voices heard.

Please leave the existing net neutrality rules based on Title II in place.

Thank you!

If you need more ammo, feel free to quote these experts from our net neutrality Issue Time. TechCrunch and Battle for the Net also have some good starters.

Everyone is counting on everyone else here. Do your part and tell the FCC to keep a free and open internet under Title II.

Could you do romanced New Vegas companions seeing the Courier getting into a fistfight because someone insulted the companion?

Arcade: They’re at the Atomic Wrangler drinking and having a good time when some drunkard tries to pick a fight with Arcade, calling him all sorts of names. Arcade isn’t interested in fighting the guy and tries to get him to leave them alone but the guy is persistent. The courier finally taps the guys on the back and when he turns around the courier decks them. Arcade turns bright red and looks back and forth between the courier and the guy knocked guy on the floor. He tells the courier that they didn’t have to do that, but the courier can tell he’s flattered that the courier knocked a guy out for him. The courier grins and Arcade can’t help but laugh. He says thanks and makes a dry comment about how he’s swooning over the macho display.

Boone: They’re at a rest stop on the road and some prospector notices Boone and sneers at him, calling him a NCR motherfucker and spits at him. Boone stands up quickly, but not as quickly as the courier does. He’s impressed at the speed in which the courier kicks the prospector’s ass. He has a sly grin on his face and tells the courier that he would do the same for them. He doesn’t have to wait that long to back up that statement, the prospector’s buddies notice what happened and attack them, and the two of them fight them off together with ease, enjoying kicking ass together. They’re at their best when fighting, and afterwards they are bloodied but cheerful. Boone tenderly wipes some blood off the courier’s lips before kissing them.

Cass: They’re at some shitty bar, the lights are low, and the place is dingy. Some tough guy tries to hit on Cass, but she tells him to fuck off. He responds by calling her a stuck up bitch. From out of nowhere the courier jumps up and punches them, they fight for a moment and the tough guy ends up on the floor. Cass stares at the courier for a moment and says holy fuck I am so turned on right now. She jumps on them, practically mounting them on the bar. They make out really intensely and knock over a bunch of glasses off the bar. Everyone nearby is grossed out. Someone murmurs something and Cass flips them off.

ED-E: They’re at a shop offloading some gear and the shopkeeper makes a comment about the “hunk of junk robot”. The courier grabs them by the shirt over the counter and tells them not to talk shit about ED-E. ED-E hovers up menacingly close to the shopkeeper’s head and plays its combat initiation noise. The shopkeeper just about poops their pants and apologizes, throwing in some free ammo in the hopes of buying their forgiveness.

Lily: Most people don’t take too kindly to Nightkin, but Lily barely notices the insults, but the courier sure does. Once when they were out and about in Freeside, someone yells at the courier to get that freak outta town. The courier chases them down and grabs them, Lily following behind. Lily disapproves, telling the courier that they shouldn’t be making trouble. The courier is reluctant, but lets the guy go, scowling. The guy looks at Lily and the courier and then hurriedly murmurs a thanks to Lily, who responds by telling them to take care and mind their manners in the future.

Rex: Rex growls at some lowlife in the street, and the person tries to kick him and tells the courier to watch their maniac dog. The courier sneers and lunges at them. Rex doesn’t really know what’s going on, but gets riled up and joins in, biting the guy in the ass as he tries to run away. The scene causes the courier to double over laughing, and Rex lets up and runs to them, barking excitedly.

Raul: He’s grown a thick skin over the years to insults and people being rude to him because he’s a ghoul, but he’s not used to people defending him. They’re eating at a roadside rest stop when a local starts heckling them. When the courier punches the bigot in the face he’s speechless, but flattered. A small brawl ensues, with Raul jumping in, but its quickly broken up by the cooks, and the courier and Raul are tossed out. As they picked themselves up out of the dirt, Raul can’t help but smile. He thanks the courier and they dust themselves and walk off, holding hands.

Veronica: Most people in the area don’t know enough to realize Veronica is a member of the Brotherhood, but once at a trading post someone recognized her outfit as the robes of a scribe. They say a lot of explicit things about the Brotherhood, and start advancing towards Veronica, angry. Before they can reach her however, the courier tackles them and they scuffle on the floor. The whole time they fight, Veronica stands over them, cheering the courier on and telling them to punch him harder. After the courier wins the bout she gives them a high five and a kiss on the cheek.

You grin into your mug as the best, evil idea comes to mind, slipping from the chair, you place your mug on the coffee table, pulling open the balcony door you step out breathing in the cold air, quickly you stoop scooping up a large handful of snow packing it together before turning back into the house. Tip toeing through the living room, down the hallway you push open the door leaning in letting in the smallest amount of light.

Companions react to the Sole Survivor’s Birthday!


Codsworth:
Since he was around before the war, he knows exactly when Sole’s birthday is, and he makes sure EVERYONE knows. He tries to keep it a secret that he is planning a surprise party, but the Sole can tell that something is up because for the weeks leading up to their birthday he is overly cheerful and makes sure to keep them away from one of the houses in Sanctuary. When the day finally comes, he has decorated their old house and as much of Sanctuary as he could, and he beams when the Sole acts so surprised!

Codsworth (Romance): He knows how much Sole liked birthdays, and he knows that this one in particular will be hard for them because it will be the first without their family. So he goes all out with the decorations, and he even scrounged up an old cake recipe just for the Sole (It looks kind of strange but surprisingly tastes pretty good!) When the Sole wraps their arms around him in a grateful hug, his motors whir and he stutters and stammers happily at them, immediately bursting into singing “Happy Birthday!”

Preston: He has never really celebrated birthdays, but he figures that it would be a good time to give the General a break from helping out so much. So he surprises them by giving them a full week of not being bothered by any settlements in need, and he makes sure the other Minutemen take care of things (Despite being extremely grateful when the week is over since they are the best Minuteman they have).

Preston (Romance): He sets up an elaborate date night walk around the Castle, and surprises them by having their Laser Musket upgraded. When they come back into the Castle, all the Minutemen have decorated the entire courtyard and they even set off one of the Artillery shells in celebration. Preston wraps his arms around the Sole as they watch the sun set from the bank of the Castle, and they tell him this was their best birthday yet.

Piper: She surprises Sole with a coupon for a month’s worth of her newspaper, free of charge! She even lets the Sole pick out their next topic of discussion for the upcoming article. (Which turns out to be a hilarious investigation into why exactly no one has reprogrammed the robot chef in Diamond City to speak English!)

Piper (Romance): She types up a huge commentary and prints it in her newspaper about the Sole’s birthday, and for that entire week people from Diamond City would come up to the Sole and give them birthday gifts. A free box of ammo, a free stimpack, and other goodies. When the Sole finally gets overwhelmed with all the good wishes and gifts, them and Piper retire to her house and spend a lovely evening enjoying each other’s company.

Curie: She surprises the Sole with a large selection of first aid supplies and proceeds to have a very detailed instruction on new and improved ways to use them. She beams and bubbles happily as the Sole digs through her selection

.
Curie (Romance):
She got to celebrate a few birthdays with the scientists but she is extremely excited to celebrate the Sole’s birthday!  Curie goes a little overboard with the decorations, and she tried to make the Sole a blanket but her skills with human hands are pretty rusty. It’s looks like a very rough, barf covered shawl, but no matter how much she apologizes the Sole happily curls up in it and drags Curie down into it with them.

Cait: She gets the Sole a very large, very nice bottle of Whiskey she had won years before but had been saving for a special occasion. She also, of course, tells the Sole that they have to share, which they do happily. It ends up turning into a drinking contest which leads to both being very hung over the morning after.

Cait (Romance): She hunts down their very favorite type of alcohol and attempts to cook them a meal (Which ends up burnt to a crisp and thrown away with a long string of cuss words). She gets so angry and frustrated because she wanted it to be perfect, she wanted to make it the best birthday ever for Sole, and she is starting to get into an angry fit when the Sole interrupts her with a hug and kiss, and thanks her for the effort with a beaming smile. Cait drags Sole into their private room for some….Happy Birthday personal time. ;-)

Deacon: Oh man, he pulls out all the stops, comes up with all sorts of party decorations and games. He’s got horseshoe, he came up with a baseball bat and a baseball, and a deck of cards that they use to play a game called Bull Shit (Which Deacon is apparently the king of). The Sole’s birthday is filled with fun and laughter, and the next day the Sole’s stomach is sore from all the laughing.

Deacon (Romance): Deacon knows he doesn’t have a whole lot to offer, so what he does offer is the truth. After he throws them a wicked party, he takes the Sole for a secluded walk along the creek, and he tells them they can ask him anything and he will tell them the truth. He also does the same to them. A question for a question, an answer for an answer. A lot of the questions are serious, but a good portion of them are goofy. By the end of the evening the Sole and Deacon are walking with their arms around each other, both feeling more light than they have in a long time, laughing happily the whole way.


Danse: Birthdays aren’t celebrated much in the Brotherhood, but he knows how rough the Sole has had it. So he makes sure that, when they are sleeping, he buffs and cleans their power armor until it is sparkling, and when the Sole gets all happy about it he just huffs and pretends it is nothing. You wouldn’t want to be walking around representing the Brotherhood in subpar armor, after all.

Danse (Romance): He wants to make a big deal about the Sole’s birthday. He wants to be romantic, he really does, but he just doesn’t know how. He had noticed the Sole eyeballing a certain new chest piece for their power armor, but it was more caps than the Sole really wanted to dish out. So Danse buys it for them, installs it, and even paints it their favorite color. When the Sole realizes what he has done, they jump up and down in glee and plant a huge kiss right on his lips, which leaves him smiling and blushing up a storm.

Nick: He is crazy busy with all of his detective cases, but heck this kid has been through so much, and he wants to be able to help them get their mind off of it. So he digs up all the mystery and detective books he and Ellie can find and surprises the Sole with them. Whether or not the Sole likes those kinds of books, they are absolutely delighted that Nick would take the time to set something aside especially for them.

Nick (Romance): He feels guilty. After all the Sole has been through, and all they have helped Nick with, and they really haven’t gotten anything in return. So he HAS to make this birthday special. Somewhere in his memories he remembers Nick dating his girl, so he takes the Sole for a romantic date in Diamond City, which ends with them up on the rooftops watching the beautiful stars. The Sole leans into him, and he takes off his coat and hat and drapes them over the Sole so they won’t be cold. As the Sole sighs against him, he can’t imagine how he got this lucky.

MacCready: He surprises them with a whole arsenal of new ammo for their favorite guns. What better way to celebrate your birthday than target practice and a few good bears??

MacCready (Romance): He always used to surprise Lucy on her birthday, and he is determined to do no less for Sole. The morning of their birthday, they are surprised by breakfast in bed, after which MacCready presents them with a brand new upgrade and ammo for their favorite gun. After a very long, sweet kiss, he proceeds to take them anywhere they want to go for the day, and in the evening he turns on their favorite music and slow dances with them in the cool evening air.

Hancock: He gets them a giant selection of the very best chems the Mayor of Goodneighbor can get his hands on. He spends the whole day high, following them around and making sure they have the most relaxed, chem filled birthday (and makes sure to have plenty of good food and drink on hand) that they can. At some point they are lying on one of the concrete pads where an empty house was in Sanctuary, making wild stories about the clouds.

Hancock (Romance): Ghouls have a lot of birthdays, but this is his Sole, so he is going to make it one to remember. He gets all of Goodneighbor to decorate for the Sole, and he takes them to the Third Rail for an amazing party. He is actually an amazing dancer and surprises the Sole with this, twirling and spinning them around the dance floor until they are laughing and dizzy. When they have had too much he takes them up and announces to all of Goodneighbor how in love with the Sole he is, and they head up to his private rooms for some more fun, private time.

Strong: Birthday? What is a birthday? He doesn’t really understand, but another day being alive is a good thing, so he slaps the human on the shoulder (which makes them face plant into the dirt.)

Strong (Romance): He still doesn’t understand birthdays, but it seems important to the Sole, so he catches himself a whole Brahmin and cooks the thing on the fire and proceeds to make the Sole sit down and eat as much of it as they can. Even after Sole has had way too much, they eat even more because they love seeing that goofy smile on their big mutant’s face.

X6-88: Humans celebrate the strangest things, but it’s not in his place to judge. They do have a fairly big celebration for the Father’s birthday back in the Institute after all. So he does show up for the Sole’s birthday festivities but he doesn’t really take part of any of it.

X6-88 (Romance): He brings a whole selection of goodies from the Institute that he knew the Sole would like, which gains him a giant hug from the Sole (which he returns stiffly). And, to humor them, he even indulges when they want to put a funny birthday hat on him, which they do happily, giggling the whole time.

Dogmeat: He can feel the excitement from everyone so he is constantly happy, barking and wagging his tail and chasing after everyone. He even finds a very cute, stuffed teddy bear that is in fairly good condition and deposits it in the Sole’s lap, which gains him a huge hug and belly rub.
