I just woke up and wow you guys have already made my day!
I’m so happy so many of you liked my most recent fic, and that so many of you have said such lovely and kind things! Really, you guys are so amazing and super nice all the time, your feedback and comments are the reason I’ve been enjoying writing again lately, they really inspire me to try harder and to think of new ideas and to do my best to improve, so thank you so much for every like, and every reblog, and every comment!
I really want to thank people individually for saying such lovely things (even in the tags cos yeah I read aaaall the tags), but I can’t reply to posts cos’ this is a sideblog and tumblr doesn’t let me and I’d feel a bit like a creeper if I went through and sent everyone a message so instead I’m just gonna tag everyone who said such lovely things in this post? hopefully that’s okay, sorry if it’s not!
“The gear represents our unity. And it’s very important because it was hard to obtain. It’s because of its importance that it is considered to be the heart of the engineering student’s heart. To the point where they say the gear is within the heart…the heart is within the gear. If we give our gear to someone, that means we’re giving them our heart.”
I’ve watched Beauty and the Beast twice now and I just can’t get these 2 seconds of screen time out of my head
This meant a lot honestly and I feel like a giddy teenager. PSYCHE! I am a giddy teenager.
same campaign as the “I roll to pet the dog” incident. we have a ranger named March now and he had a pretty rocky introduction, by which I mean he shot our necromancer/blood mage in the knee, who just so happened to be fucking the bard, who wasn’t too happy that his friend got shot. the DM informed the bard’s player that punching the ranger would make a poor impression and probably cause him to reconsider joining our group. the bard vows to punch him later.
skip forward a few sessions.
we were fighting a bulette in the woods and the thing crit 20’d to hit our ranger, knocking out all of his HP. the bard, knowing spare the dying, decides to use this as an opportunity to help them both out.
bard, OOC: I walk over there, aaaand since this (spare the dying) is a touch thing, I punch him in the gut to spare him.
necromancer/blood mage, OOC: this is the same guy who, like, shot me in the fucking knee so I am giddy.
bard, OOC: lemmi, lemmi just paint this picture for you. I walk over…causally…
ranger, OOC: I smile as you’re coming over.
bard, OOC: I, I walk over casually. I punch him in the gut and I say
bard: I told you I would you son of a bitch. you’re welcome.
the necromancer/blood mage, OOC(?): OOOH HO HOOO!
ranger, OOC: -wheezing-
after a bit of discussion on whether or not this meant the ranger took damage or was stabilized, we agreed that he didn’t have to make any death saving throws and he survived the encounter.
yes, whizzer going down is a great song, but can we talk about the rest of in trousers???? set those sails is gorgeous and how the body falls apart/your lips and me is so pretty and perfect for trina’s style and character and oh my god in trousers (the dream) always makes me cry it’s got the prettiest lyrics and tune ever and marvin’s giddy seizures is such a Bop and the nausea before the game and i am wearing a hat are amazing and because in trousers takes place before falsettos it goes much further into marvin realising things about himself and his internalised homophobia and compulsory heterosexuality and how trina feels about marvin and fuck i love it so much!!!!
Storytime (07/25/17) Go Nitro, Chapter 1: A Project
Tonight was the first night Ryan read something on stream that I suggested. I am giddy beyond measure. I suggest that he read the first three paragraphs from Jeremy’s book Go Nitro. I also had to transcribe it since not everyone has the text yet, but I was more than happy to do so. It was just all very, very, cool.

also consider this: miss giddy’s tattoos are her own, meanwhile the organic is doing the equivalent of branding cattle
But are they really her own? I mean, we’re led to believe the History People are independent agents and living history books, but unless there’s something else I’m missing, we don’t truly know who they are or how they got tattooed, or why. Or who decided to get what tattooed on them. And when you look at recorded history, no matter what you read, it’s biased as hell. I don’t think Giddy’s tattoos are brands or that she was forced to get them, but in the absence of any other knowledge I have to question their source. Biased knowledge is better than no knowledge, but history is written by those in power. Who was in power when the History People got their tattoos? And by that I mean who (single person or multiple people) held the needle and who decided what to write on them? Every person is biased and has their own agenda.
I wanted to just do some quick sketches tonight to practice expressions since i tend to struggle with both subtle and extreme emotions. I ended up doing some character scenes from some of my fanfictions since I am so so grateful to the authors for writing them, they’ve been bringing me a lot of joy… and pain, but mostly joy!
And Nearly Letting Go by @uncannycookie is a huge fav of mine, I love their writing so so much, especially how they write Mob. They’ve managed to capture some of the more jagged edges of his personality that I think make him fascinating. Plus it’s killing me, I am on the edge of my seat omg
A Breach of Trust by @phantomrose96 *internal sobbing* Okay, so like I’m slowly making my way through this one cause I have to keep stopping to read fluff cause I swear to god it makes me feel like my heart is being crushed. The writing is phenomenal, super creative premise, very dramatic and plot heavy. It’s just pure excellence and I will get there and read it all *external sobbing*
It Runs in the Family by @fireflysummers I’ve heard where this story is going and let me tell you it hits so many of my pings I am giddy with excitement. The writing is fantastic! The character’s voices are really well done and I am so so sold on the premise I have accepted it as headcanon. The dynamics have so much potential I am so excited!
Go, go read! They are all great and there are mooooooore!
