got humour

He leaned close - the scent of polished leather, and sage hitting her - his lips whisper soft against her brow as he kissed her. 

“Indess,” Zevran murmured, her heart breaking for him. She had known from his glances, the way he would cut across the battlefield to support her, that he thought of her more than a friend. The fact that he still cherished her, knowing she loved another - it felt like she had betrayed him, betrayed his kindness. 

“No matter the decision you make, people will understand.” He pulled back briefly, smiling at her sadly, as if he already knew the answer to his unasked question. “But Antiva is beautiful this time of year. The sea glitters as you walk down the harbour, rain and mud are but a thought, unlike Ferelden." 

There was a wistful tone to his words, the rogue drawing in a deep breath, homesickness hitting him. It always did when he spoke of Antiva. It was hard not to cry at his gentleness, at the calloused touch of his hand on her cheek, fingers stained with betrayal and death, but there was a softness to them - the caress of a lover. 

Perhaps a small bit of her did love him, in some strange, forgotten way. Alistair had claimed her heart, but Zevran made her very soul catch alight. 

"You have sacrificed enough for this world. Come home with me.”

My Ideal First Scene from GoT Season 6
  • Doran and Arianne are sitting in a room (maybe that really pretty one from episode 9?), laughing their asses off.
  • Arianne: We punked them so good! They actually believed those four Mummers I randomly hired in the Planky Town were Ellaria and the Sand Snakes?
  • Doran: I KNOW! That woman even forgot that the real Ellaria has children!
  • Arianne: The fact that they were incompetent Mummers makes it even funnier. And what as with those accents?
  • Doran: Who talks like that? No one!
  • Arianne: Did they do that thing with the spinning and the mincing steps while they were fighting? We spent so much time rehearsing that.
  • Doran: It was so entertaining that I was slightly worried I waited too long to send the guards in. I mean, it was broad daylight and they even had an establishing shot of me watching from the balcony.
  • Arianne: Did Larry not get suspicious that he was even able to sneak into where the prince lives in the middle of the day without being stopped or questioned by anyone?
  • Doran: I think we lucked out, this guy was really dumb. He did no research. He didn’t even know you exist. He didn’t even notice that his daughter/niece was several years too old and had a different face.
  • Arianne: Hey, that Mummer was good. It’s not her fault. Her facial expressions were very expressive.
  • Doran: You don’t understand, Arianne, they actually thought that that whiney little boyband reject was my heir. He improv’ed this line about a flea bite.... it was bad... but also funny.
  • Arianne: Wait till I get back to the Real Water Gardens and tell Trys and Myrcella about this. They’ll laugh so hard, they’ll knock over the cyvasse table.
  • Doran: You should have seen their faces when I randomly started toasting the king. They were so confused!
  • Arianne: Like you would ever unironically express support for the Lannisters!
  • Doran: With, like, no kind of context or preamble? I know!
  • Arianne: Well, I’m glad that the whole thing provided a distraction for everyone so that the two of us could work out our issues in a mutually respectful and non-sexist way, entirely off screen.
  • Doran: Yes, I’ve very happy that we both did things for reasons that were relatable and coherent and that a series of events happened that caused us to be challenged as characters resulting in us being somehow changed at the end of both of our arcs.
  • Arianne: We make a great team.
  • Doran: Yes we do.

i find the decapitation meme really interesting, cus it feels like it was gonna happen for sure based on the fandoms sense of humour, but the way it works is based on how it happened in-comic

like a similar joke was gonna happen either way because even tho its a long comic where a lot of characters die repeatedly, dirk managed to get decapitated TWICE, but i feel the joke wouldve gone differently depending on whether both incidents were on purpose, both accidents, or one was on purpose and the other an accident

since both incidents were dirks idea, it became the joke that dirk comes up with being decapitated whenever hes faced with a problem (which is hyperbolic to comic effect, considering in the canon both occasions were life or death situations, but i love the hs fandoms hyperbole)

but i think that if both had been accidents, the fandom wouldve still come up with a similar meme, namely that this is just something that can randomly happen to dirk whenever. similarly hyperbolic comics would emerge of, like, him an dave playing frisbee and the frisbee accidentally decapitating him; him and the others are sitting around eating breakfast and his head falls off in his cereal. that kinda stuff

and if the first instance was on purpose but the other one turns out to be daves idea i imagine it wouldve been at least one comic of dirk complaining “wow you cut your head off ONE TIME and suddenly its A THING”; or if the first was an accident and the second was on purpose there would be at least one comic along the lines of dirk musing mid-battle “yknow actually, that decapitation worked out pretty well, maybe it will this time” (tho tbh i dont think these ones wouldve caught on as much because of the lack of room for hyperbole and possible applications for the joke)

but yh, this is just something i was musing about in the shower yesterday. i just think that this meme kinda perfectly captures a large part of the fandoms sense of humour in a few ways

My lover’s got humour
She’s the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody’s disapproval
I should’ve worshipped her sooner
If the heavens ever did speak
She’s the last true mouthpiece
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak
A fresh poison each week
“We were born sick”
You heard them say it
My church offers no absolutes
She tells me “worship in the bedroom”
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Is when I’m alone with you
I was born sick, but I love it
Command me to be well
Amen, Amen, Amen
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life.

  • Robert: Why don't you just sack off work for the day?
  • Aaron: I'm better off keeping busy.
  • Liv: Morning.
  • Aaron: Hiya.
  • Robert: Hiya. - You could be busy taking me out for lunch, never mind humping a load of old scrap about.
  • Aaron: I can't expect Adam to carry the business, can I? It's gonna be bad enough when I'm inside.
  • Robert: Nice to see you've got a sense of humour about it. While you're sleepwalking your way in to prison, what are the rest of us supposed to do?
  • Aaron: You can stop fussing for a start.
  • Chas: (coming in) Special delivery from Marlon the great.
  • Liv: What is it, a cake?
  • Chas: Mm. He's done it special for Lisa. Look. Ha-ha. Double choc-chip chocolate fudge. Wow, about 4000 calories a slice.
  • Liv: Well, whoop-de-dooo for Lisa then.
  • Aaron: Oi you, you'll trip over that bottom lip if you're not careful. Oi! Why don't you come to the scrapyard, help me for half an hour? I'll make it worth your while.
