Two drawings I did for the amazing @hates-great@60-six ;D

The bottom one was a drawing I’ve been wanting to do for a while and the top one was because she wasn’t feeling well and I wanted to draw a chibi Shnee so why not<3

Shark is…her sona? While Shnee (the dog) and Rexerse (the guy in the bottom) are @60-six‘s. Both characters are from City of Blank which you can check on Deviantart or Tapastic (latter one is more updated)

Hunyu (The weird wolf-bear ghost) is mine

Jasper has literally beaten Steven before. Lapis stole the entire ocean. Peridot has tried to kill the gems more than once. Lars has always been a dick to Steven. Sadie kept Steven from going back home on the warp pad for days on an island just so she could have time with Lars. Ronaldo had kidnapped Steven before. Ruby almost accidentally boiled Steven alive, and Sapphire almost froze him. Pearl was going to let Steven fall off that cliff-thingy in the Rose’s Scabbard episode. Steven watched as Amethyst emotionally toyed with his father by transforming into Rose. The goddamn mayor almost ran him over with his truck before. Despite this, I don’t believe Steven holds any grudges against them.

but fuCK KEVIN

me: *takes a deep breath*

me: Magnus has never once touched Alec without his consent. Even when he shushes him his finger hovers above Alec’s lips. Even the night before Alec’s wedding he uses magic on Alec to show him what love feels like instead of actually touching him and doing so (also side note he has never used magic on Alec until this point in the show when they have gotten to know each other and when he knows that Alec feels the same way he does).

 Magnus may make suggestive comments and/or flirty gestures but once Alec tells him to back off he does. Episode 9, for example. When Magnus asks Alec if he could look at his wound Alec says that he’s fine. Magnus then persists because he cares about Alec and doesn’t want to see him get hurt, but then when Alec tells him he’s alright in a firmer tone of voice that clearly indicates that he doesn’t want him to, he doesn’t. Skip to Episode 11. Magnus says he’ll do Alec “pro bono” in a suggestive tone, but once Alec changes the subject and makes it clear that he’s not interested, Magnus drops it and moves on to discuss the bow and quiver.

Whenever Magnus offers Alec drinks, he never insists or forces him to actually drink it. They have only had two scenes like this in Season 1. The first scene was in Episode 6 where Magnus holds up two drinks and asks Alec if he wants a drink break. And Alec clearly makes the decision that he’s going to accept it by standing up and taking the drink from Magnus. Move to Episode 12 when Magnus tells Alec to come to his loft and magically makes a glass full of wine appear in his hand. Alec then says “I didn’t come to drink” and so on and puts the glass down and Magnus doesn’t persist even though he just told him that he hates drinking alone. Bonus is when he tells Alec that if he says that he loves Lydia he’ll stop pursuing him. Magnus persists after that and starts talking about symptoms of love only because Alec does not and cannot say it. If Alec had told him that he loves Lydia, as much as it would have hurt, Magnus would have given up, as he clearly indicated.

Magnus does not take from Alec just for his benefit, unlike Camille with Simon. While he doesn’t want Alec to get married because he’s interested in him, he knows how much it will affect Alec for being stuck with someone he will never love and how it will affect Lydia in the exact same way. He’s not chasing after Alec after the engagement is announced just for his own personal gain. He’s trying to also help someone who is conflicted between following his head or his heart and trying to stop him from making possibly the worst mistake of his life.

And lastly, the kiss. Magnus shows up at the wedding, yes, but he lets Alec choose what happens next. He makes it clear that he will go if Alec wants him to, therefore implying that whatever Alec asks him to do he will do it. Magnus shows up at the wedding to show Alec that he is fighting for him and that he likes him, but he respectably waits for Alec to make his move. And then when Alec starts walking towards him he doesn’t move an inch and he doesn’t even touch Alec until after Alec grabs him and kisses him. He only touches Alec after Alec touches him.

Even after the kiss Magnus still does not intrude into Alec’s space. He doesn’t try to make physical contact with him or make suggestive comments or anything like that.

Magnus Bane is flirty. He is sometimes suggestive and makes drinks. But he knows boundaries and respects them and is aware when he may be crossing them slightly and backs off. He is not a predator. If you want an example of a predator, look at Camille, who clearly takes for her own benefit without consent from the other person and does not respect boundaries in the slightest.

Magnus Bane is understanding and beautiful and kind. He does not harass Alec into liking him nor is he a predator.

Joining the City Guard, part 3

Context: A direct continuation from the last two parts.

My character (human fighter, only uses shields) is trying to join the city guard and has been given three tests but no explanation of what to do. I arrested a training dummy and prepare for the final two trials:

—————————-

DM: *face in hands trying to surpress laughter* Ok. Now what do you do?

Me: I’m going to jump over that wall.

DM: (ooc) That’s a 10 foot wall. You’re going to need a pretty good running start to that jump. Roll me Acrobatics.

Me: *rolls* (ooc) My rolls are on point today. With my armor penalty, that was a -1.

DM: …So in your attempt to jump over the wall, you forgot to actually jump. You just ran head first into a brick wall. There is now a man-shaped dent in it.

Me: Well that didn’t work. If I can’t go over it, I can probably go through it. *rolls 16 Strength*

DM: The dent deepens. You’re about halfway through

Me: Again! *rolls crit fail*

DM: (ooc) Oh my god. That last attempt has left you embedded in the wall. Roll Strength to get out.

Me: *rolls nat 20*

DM: You manage to pull yourself free and take the rest of the wall with you.

Me: (ooc) Well I’ve done two things now. I walk up to the caged bird, place my shields gently on the ground next to it. I’m going to tame the bird—enemy to criminals, friend to animals.

DM: Roll Handle Animal.

Me: *rolls crit fail*

DM: (ooc) Holy shit how do you keep doing that? You open the cage and stick your gauntleted hand in for the bird to perch on. Only you put your hand in too far and squish the bird up against the back side, killing it.

Me: (ooc) Oh my god I Lenny’d the bird!

*the entire table is in hysterics, DM is at a loss on how to respond*

DM: …What do you do now?

Me: I shed a single tear for the loss of an innocent bird and vow to bring its murderer to justice.

DM: But you—

Me: I would like to submit myself for justice for the murder of an innocent bird.

*table is in tears at this point, DM is having a coughing fit from laughter*

DM: (ooc) *after composing himself* Ok, I think I see a way to get you with the party.

DM: The guards are all… shocked at what they just witnessed. They talk amongst themselves about what to do with you.

DM (as guard captain): Well, uhh… Usually the punishment for murder is death. But the Dawnflower is merciful and has decided to commute your sentence to community service. Your job is to escort a political prisoner to a city far away from here.

(ooc) Roll a Sense Motive.

Me: *rolls crit fail* (ooc) Nailed it.
