A certain exy junkie ghost haunts the foxhole court

“I know you’re new here,” Matt explained on the way from the locker room to the court, “and your cousin looks ready to take on the world, but there’s some things we don’t mess with.”

Glancing back from his cousin (but no, he wasn’t taking on the world, he was just smiling creepily at the more outspokenly homophobic fifth years, great) Nicky side-eyed Matt.

“Some things like… salt on the windowsills.”

“It seems to help.”

“And the holy water by the doors that, uh, what’s her name–”

“Renee?”

“– Yeah, her - the ones she manages.”

“Those definitely help. She learned from a professional.”

“Uh-huh.”

“I know what you’re thinking–”

“You keep saying it helps, but with what?

Matt cut a hand through the air, struggled for words, and finally, shrugged.

“At first, I didn’t believe it either. But, it’s. Well. Take my word for it: the court’s haunted.”

Nicky laughed.

Matt did not.

Nicky stopped laughing.

“Sorry,” Nicky said, smile strained, “I don’t usually ask this before we at least have a dinner, but: come again?”

"A little testy here at the end of the first period! Backstrom with a little collision here with Matt Dumba--and that's going to bring Ovechkin over." Caps Radio was great yesterday, broadcasting the 8+19 love to those of us stuck away from our TVs/computers. The Ovi compass in radio format? PS: thank you for the gifs every game! I usually only get the first period via the radio, so it's so nice to get the visuals without having to wait on nhlreplays com to load their shit. You're the real hero!

This entire league and their mother know that Ovi has zero chill. Zero. Zilch. Nada. None. Whatever is the opposite of having the slightest chill, Ovi is it

I don’t even have words, anon. Instead please accept my humble offering of Ovi doing the compass thing again that night, where you can see Nicky coming a mile away just from the smile in Ovi’s eyes.

Pairing: Kagehina (loosely)
Show: Haikyuu!!
Summary:

At the bottom of the garden, there is a hole. It sits in a wall shrouded by foliage, by long, creeping vines and sharp, spiked leaves, and through the hole—the ceiling is low, remember to crouch—there is a lane.

I guess to illustrate my point about BotW, I’ll talk about one of the quests - there’s a part in the game where you can’t continue until you have 20 lightning arrows. The NPCs helpfully tell you there’s a monster at the top of the hill that shoots lightning arrows, and you can scavenge them from around his lair. There’s the assumption that you’ll go either sneak around and collect arrows up there, or even kill that monster and return with all his arrows.

I simply teleported to a town, bought lightning arrows, and returned. The game continued without a pause. I didn’t have to fail fighting the lightning guy 100 times. In other Zelda games, I would have been railroaded into fighting the lightning guy. But in this game, the Hard Zelda Game, I could choose not to go fight him.

Ultimate player control, multiple (multiple) solutions to any given problem, optional challenges. No abrupt bottlenecking where you’re not allowed to keep playing the game you bought until you mastered some tiresome un-fun mini game. All of this = great fun.
