have i got new for you

(I’m pretty new to D&D, and so are my players. The rogue, who also DMs, has a bad habit of taking over the game. Due to this, the adventure I had planned got totally scrapped. This was my revenge.)

(The storyline is that due to a racist wizard, the Rogue’s in game Bard boyfriend was cursed into a magic sleep. Also, they have an adopted baby gollem son named Dwayne. It’s all a very long story.)

Me: You approach the sorceress’ tower All you can see is a plain wooden door.

Rogue: I order Macedo (An Ent) to break the door.

Me: Macedo attempts to ram himself into the door. He bounces off, harmlessly.

Rogue: I bribe the door with gems I stole from (Bard)

Me: The door remains closed.

Rogue: I roll for perception. *rolls high*

Me: You touch the door, and suddenly think, “Where are my manners?” You realize that is the clue.

Rogue: “I left my manners with my boyfriend. Let me go get them.” I return to Macedo and grab Dwayne.

“Oh, most highly esteemed door, please accept my humble request to please release your lock and let me in, for my significant other is greatly afflicted with an enchanted sleep. Both me and my son beseech you, please let us in.”

I show the door my son.

Me: The door is not sentient. No affect.

(At this point, the Druid and Bard are just about crying with laughter, due to the fact I told them to way to open the door; knocking. Finally, the Druid approaches in-game, and helps out.)

Me: The Elven Stranger approaches. He had followed the Ent.

(Druid rolls perception and gets the same clue.)

Druid: Hmm. I glance at the person trying to open the door before shaking my head and firmly knocking on the door. It’s only polite after all.

Rogue: I roll to facepalm. *gets a nat-20*

(The table loses their minds)

Keith’s New Groove
  • [Scene: Lotor and Shiro debate with Keith on whether or not he should stay with Voltron.]
  • Lotor: Listen up, fellow half-galran. I got three good reasons why you should forget about Voltron and just walk away. Number one. Look at the leader! He was apart of that foolish ice skate show.
  • Shiro: We've been through this. It was important for the coalition, and you know it.
  • Lotor: Oh, of course. For the coalition (pause). You also have a floof.
  • Shiro (indignant): Bangs!
  • Lotor: Moving on! Reason number two. Look what I can do. Ha-ha!
  • [does his insane double jointed arm bend trick]
  • Keith (disturbed yet slightly impressed): Okay... Wow. But what does that have to do with anything?
  • Shiro: No, no. He's got a point.

I was driving through a construction zone the other day and reminisced about Lotus The Ultimate Challenge, which had a stage like that … Ah, good old days of racing games. 

I thought it would be cool to have a remake or something like that. And then I remembered that Slipstream is an upcoming game in that exact style, well, the drifting Outrun variety anyway. Best news, it’s almost done. Like, it was supposed to be released earlier this month, but, well, you know how things are with game development, especially solo developers—things always take a bit longer.

We got a new backers demo in September though and it played as smooth as ever. I loved the new VHS filter which made me forget it’s not the 80s anymore and I was happy like a kid again! These new screenshots also make me believe there are quite some new tracks/environments hiding in the full release. Can’t wait!

Keep up to date with Slipstream right here on Tumblr by following its developer @ansdor.

Hi Tay, it’s Katelyn :) I saw that you’d said your biggest insecurity is your hair, and I get insecure about my natural hair as well, so here is a picture of me being happy n stuff while embracing what I’ve got in support of you. I also wanted to update you on my life a bit because I haven’t seen/talked to you for real since 2015… so if you like to read more, that would make my heart so happy. Love you sister. xo

Oh, the things that have happened in the last two and a half years. Clearly I’ve grown up?? I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t even recognize me. I’m 17 now!! Been through some rough patches, had a major heartbreak and a half, lost some friends, made some new ones, you know… life. I’m feeling okay right now though. My friends are the best fucking people in the entire world. I’m not kidding. I successfully weeded out all of the toxic people who had constantly been making me feel miserable, and now I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time. A lot of those friends, sisters at this point honestly, I have known for years because of you and they are THE best people to spill to and spend time with. Some of my favorite moments in the history of..ever.. have come from doing absolutely nothing with them, but also somehow turning it into the best day ever. In the tags I’m gonna add a hashtag filled with some of the posts that mean the most to them, so please fill my heart and take a look at that if you do happen to read this ! I’ll probably do a separate one for myself too, just so that you can see what you’ve been missing (mine is gonna be all over the place so just a warning in advance lol). I’ve been busy as ever– sleep is a myth tbh. I’m on the board for a handful of things at school, working, looking out for my sisters, and pretty much just trying to keep on holding my shit together in general. Not to toot my own horn, but I’ve also gotten funnier and I think you’ve noticed this.

I didn’t really have anything ÜBER important to tell you about, I just wanted to talk to you. The other night I was reminded of just how many fans you have and how hard it must be to keep up with all of us (props !!!!). Sometimes it makes me feel forgotten, but I know that isn’t the truth. Thank you for doing that too, checking in on us, you’re incredible babe. I really miss your sweet self and your bone-crushing hugs :( I hope you’re proud of me and how much I’ve changed myself for the better. We better reunite on tour my girl. Take care of yourself and see you soon !! I love you, always.

PS: I’m SO happy that you’ve finally found a relationship that’s worth your time and energy. You’ve always been deserving of the very best– that will never change. You’re fucking radiating and it’s so exhilarating and contagious!!!!!!!!

Monday Fic Rec

It’s just past midnight in the UK and my brain won’t shut up even though I’ve got an 8-8 shift tomorrow, so here’s some new fics we can all enjoy:

need your grace by juliusschmidt:

Summary: “I can’t wait to kiss you,” he says, softly. “With, like, tongue.”

Louis closes his eyes. This afternoon on the train in, he would never have guessed that at the end of the night he’d have Harry Styles- the Harry Styles- beside him, begging to be kissed. With tongue. Jesus Christ.

You Might Want to Marry My Husband by Rearviewdreamer:

Summary: When Harry’s husband dies, he asks one thing of him; to find love and happiness again without him. It’s a request that Harry is happy to disregard, until he meets the one person who is impossible to ignore.

Word count: 24,501

Do You Like My Sweater? by kiwikero:

Summary: “Look, for a Sadie Hawkins dance the omegas are supposed to invite the alphas instead of the other way around.”Niall and Liam shared a look. “That… sounds like the sort of thing you would usually be all over, Lou,” Liam said, face pinched in confusion. Niall nodded his agreement.“Yeah, if omegas were hosting it,” Louis replied sourly. “It’s one thing if we decide that we’re going to ask the alphas for a change. It’s insulting that they think we need their permission.”When Harry’s alpha fraternity decides to host a Sadie Hawkins dance, outspoken omega Louis has a thing or two to say about it.

Funny How The Stars Crossed Right by LiveLaughLoveLarry:

Summary: Liam and Louis round the corner to see a horse trotting around the ring. She (or maybe he) is a beautiful animal, with a dark black coat and white socks. A tall man in riding clothes sits atop the horse, speaking softly. He’s completely focused on the horse, and doesn’t notice their entrance at all. Dark brown curls spill out from beneath his helmet, and his expression is one of total joy.

“Who’s that?” Louis asks, finding himself oddly breathless.

“That’s Chester,” Liam says. “He’s an angel.”

Louis is about to comment that he looks like an angel, but then pauses. “The human or the horse?”

Louis is a photography student, assigned to do a project at Greenfield Stables. Harry is a veterinary student, working part-time at Greenfield to gain experience and make a little money. They both have something to teach the other.

Got This Feeling In Our Souls by Anonymous:

Summary: Louis sat up, awoken by something he couldn’t quite put a finger on. He scrubbed at his eyes, unsure if he was actually still dreaming or if he was awake. He didn’t dream often, but when he did they were always vivid like this. Louis opened his eyes and squinted through the darkness before jumping back, his heart racing.

Dream or not, there was a person sitting in the chair in the corner of the room. The chair that usually was only used by Charlie while Louis slept.“

Who the fuck are you and how did you get in my apartment?” Louis asked, voice a bit more squeaky than he’d like to admit. Suddenly there were two flashes of green, and the world went black again.

Boiling Blood Will Circulate by whoknows:

Summary: He misses. The shot misses.

Something howls in the woods, a pretty clear indication that Harry hit it, but there’s no telltale sounds of a big body dropping, no animal charging out at him to take him out before he can finish the job.

Something does turn and run, though. “Fuck,” Harry spits out, scrambling to his feet and slinging the rifle back over his shoulder, giving chase. He’s not going to lose this hunt.

The trail of blood goes on longer than Harry thought it would. He doesn’t know how long he runs for, but his muscles are burning, chest heaving with exertion, until the trail just - goes dead. No more blood, just like that.

“Fuck,” Harry says.

Members Only by kikikryslee:

Summary: “Well, I’m gonna go work out now, so…” Harry said, his voice trailing off.

Louis nodded. “Yeah, yeah, go ahead. Go get, uh, you know, strong and buff.”

What?

Louis wanted to die.

“Um, thanks?” Harry said. “Um…”

Without another word, Harry walked away from the desk.

Louis pinched his thigh – hard – hoping that was some terrible, awkward nightmare that he might soon wake up from.

Or, the one where Louis works at Harry’s new gym and neither one of them knows how to hold a coherent conversation with the other.

the dead things we carry by Anonymous:

Summary: September ‘49 

He hasn’t seen him since that day in France, that horrible muddy day where for one terrifyingly long second, Louis really thought he was going to die. He winces with the phantom pain, the hand not holding his cane going to his stomach automatically, remembering the franticness, the tenderness, of Harry’s hands while Louis was bleeding out.

This is the man who saved Louis’ life.

For one second, Louis fears Harry won’t recognise him, but his eyes widen when he turns to his left and they meet Louis’. He takes a step forward, reaching for him with a shaky hand before stopping himself.

“Louis,’ Harry says with a shudder and Louis doesn’t think his name has ever carried more weight.

This is the only man Louis ever thought about kissing for real.

“Oh,” Mrs. Padley says, clearly taken aback. “You two know each other?”

There are some things people never fully come home from. Until, one day, if they’re lucky, home comes to them.

(we will be) as if chosen by alivingfire:

Summary: There’s not a royal in the world who doesn’t carry some sort of secret, and Prince Louis has more than his fair share. To protect himself and his family, Louis withdrew from the public eye and tried to live a quiet life, biding his time until his sister Lottie could take the throne in his stead. Unfortunately for him, the national media and the worst person Louis has ever met team up to bring him kicking and screaming back into the spotlight.

Under the watchful eyes of millions, Louis has to figure out how to keep his carefully constructed house of cards from falling, and the first step to accomplishing that is to keep from falling in love with the irritatingly charming Prince Harry, who just won’t stop showing up and trying to whisk Louis out of the constraints of his boring life.

Or: the course of true love never did run smooth, because sometimes people are stubborn and sometimes people are scared and sometimes, just sometimes, love can cause just as many problems as it solves.

Love So Soft by lululawrence:

Summary: “Harry?” Louis called out. It was light out and a Sunday. Harry was probably in the kitchen.

Right then, Harry came walking back into the room with some scrambled eggs and toast on two plates. He froze about three steps in though, and looked up at Louis, his brows furrowed.

“I made breakfast, but…you…” Harry stopped and cleared his throat. “Uhm, your scent changed? Just since I got up to make breakfast. You okay?”

Louis bit his lip and shook his head. “I think my heat is coming early.”

Or the one where Harry and Louis have been friends since they were kids, but when Louis’ heat comes early, that balance that always existed between them suddenly changes.

anonymous asked:

hey so i moved into a new dorm at college, and my flatmates generally have been really kind, quite tidy, and not super loud at night. we all decided to get together for drinks last night, and it got to the wee hours of the morning and one flatmate came out with "hitler didn't kill enough jews." turns out she actually believes this and is an actual nazi. help me space mom, what the fuck am i supposed to do

kill her

No no, don’t actually, you probably wouldn’t be able to get away with it.

Does she remember saying this? Do your other flatmate(s) remember her saying this? This is a pretty shitty place to be in because if you want to switch rooms to be somewhere else, you’re going to have to go to the Residence Hall Director and be the BIGGEST bitch until they listen. I know this first hand because my Freshman year of college was a similar situation and the amount of threatening I had to do was exhausting. 

My story is under the cut because it’s long and not really a necessary read.

But when I went through a similar situation we couldn’t legally make one of the flatmates move out, so the other 3 of us left at the end of the semester. Usually some dorms clear up at the end of the fall semester due to some people graduating, some people leaving, and some people getting kicked out. I’d talk to your RHD if it’s at the point where you could not live with this person, and they would probably get you a list of available dorms you could move into at the end of the semester. 

And I say moving out is the best situation because if you confront her about this it’s going to be a shitshow and you’ve already got classes to worry about and the last thing you need is to be living in a hostile environment like that.

anonymous asked:

what do you personally dislike about Slott's ASM? also do you know how he has been the main writer for so long? It feels like marvel should have switched it up

This turned out so long, sorry, anon.

I don’t know the circumstances that have led to Slott’s extremely long run on Amazing Spider-Man, but I do feel it’s long past time to switch it up for a number of reasons, and frankly, I’m surprised they didn’t chose Legacy as the perfect time to bring in a new writer. I’ve got two bones to pick with Slott’s Amazing Spider-Man, and one is a couple of personal experiences I’ve had that centered around Superior Spider-Man (importantly, they’re both scenes involving the run’s treatment of women) and then just a general note on why his Peter Parker voice doesn’t work for me, personally. I have liked other comics by Slott, for the record.

The personal experiences first:

I’ve witnessed Slott harass a friend of mine on social media over a comment on a frankly awful panel in Superior Spider-Man, saying that they shouldn’t criticize Otto’s actions because he was “on a journey.” This kind of behavior is apparently not an isolated incident where he’s involved, but I should note that my friend was at the time very young (I can’t remember if they were 18, but quite possibly they were younger). I believe it was made obvious to him at one point that he was arguing with a teenager, but I can’t recall for sure. I do know they did not tag him in their criticism. But most importantly, this is the panel they were discussing:

For those unaware, Superior Spider-Man was a storyline where Doctor Octopus bodyjacked Peter and intended to live his life as Peter and as Spider-Man. Nobody knew that Peter had been replaced. 

Otto’s thought boxes are positioned over Mary Jane’s dialogue, effectively silencing her, and not only is HIS gaze clearly fixed on her breasts, but the reader is essentially forced to stare at them, too. I don’t know how the average man feels looking at this panel, but I can say, as a woman, it 100% feels like the comic is creepily staring at my boobs and I’m not cool with that. This is not a fun cheesecake page, embracing Mary Jane as a confident, sexually attractive woman – it’s treating her like a piece of meat. If this was intended to be funny, I’m sorry, but the joke is bad. Even if we were to say Otto was “on a journey” to become a better person and that his behavior in the first issue is not indicative of who he’ll become so he shouldn’t be judged on it – which, currently, he’s in a Peter clone body, being all sad because his Parker Industries coup failed and the woman he lied to and seduced using Peter’s identity doesn’t want to date him, so I guess the last stop on the train was Disgusting Man Valley – it’s still a page where a man infiltrates a woman’s private life using the body of one of the closest people to her and then ignores her voice to stare at her breasts. (Make no mistake: Otto was explicitly and aggressively trying to trick her into bed using Peter’s identity. Later, when he realized he could access Peter’s memories, he replayed Peter’s sexual encounters with Mary Jane. I don’t like any stop on this journey, guys.)

The “journey”, I suspect, was meant to refer to Ock’s growing feelings towards Anna Maria Marconi, but that just highlights another set of problems I have: Mary Jane, a beautiful model turned entrepreneur, is ultimately deemed by Otto as “unacceptable” for someone of Peter’s intellect, and cast aside in favor Anna Maria, who works in STEM, can cook like an Italian grandmother, and who is pretty but not conventionally desirable. It would be one thing for the character to do this, but Slott did once say that Otto was better at appreciating “real beauty” than Peter, and that Peter’s love for Mary Jane was “anti-Marvel”, because Mary Jane’s “superficially beautiful”, implying that she lacks inner beauty and ignoring the canon fact that Mary Jane’s moral center has always been stronger than Peter’s. This disregard for Mary Jane solely because she’s pretty continues in a scene where Mary Jane gets all dressed up and goes to meet a new guy she’s interested in, only to get pushed into the mud before he sees her. While humor via humiliation is common in Slott’s Spider-Man, I don’t really think I need to elaborate on why a scene all about taking a woman who is confident in her appearance and sexuality down a peg leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I really dislike how often Mary Jane is disregarded by fans because she’s “a shallow male fantasy” (please read comics) so to say that Peter loving her is anti-Marvel is just, like, no. 

More under the cut.

anonymous asked:

hi lottie, can you write a drabble about clydeland? 💕💕

The bar is both quiet enough and empty enough that Stensland decides to drink here until he’s thrown out at closing time and he can trudge back to his new apartment, alone.

Moving to a new city has been a good thing, Stensland thinks, sipping at his beer before his mind shouts ‘fuck it’ at him and he downs it.

“You wanna take it easy there,” the barman says. It’s statement, not a question. Stensland has heard that tone many a time before, though he never listens.

“When you’ve got as many fucking issues as I have, you have to down beer in one,” Stensland replies, hiccuping quietly before gesturing for another beer.

The barman shrugs and fetches Stensland another bottle and glides it to him across the bar but his hand lingers on it before Stensland can take it.

“If you got issues then you talk about it,” the barman says, his dark eyes staring softly to a point where Stensland feels his innards quiver. “If you wanna drink then go like a fish in a pond but it ain’t gonna stop your pain.”

The barman uncurls his fingers from the bottle, and Stensland chuckles.

“You sound like you’ve got experience with playful alcoholism,” though Stensland finds himself staring at the handsome barman rather than wanting to drink.

“I got a brother. Gone through some hard times like yourself. Drinkin’ is how he made himself feel happy but it wasn’t real.”

Stensland blinks, having lost himself in the bartender’s eyes for a moment. There’s an innocence to his expression, a softness to the way he moves, even with his prosthetic arm adding difficulty to his making drinks.

For the first time since he moved to this new town, Stensland finds that Morgan isn’t the focus of his thoughts or his fantasies. It’s this bartender.

Stensland drinks the beer.

“Smart words,” he nods. “Do I get to know the name of the mouth that the smart words came from?”

Even before the barman has frowned, Stensland cringes at his own attempts at flirting, and suddenly the chances of being underneath the barman’s hulkingly handsome body are disappearing.

“Clyde,” the barman says. It’s perfect.

“Enchanté,” Stensland winks.

“Is that your name? I knew the Irish had some funny ol’ names but–”

“No, no! I’m Stensland,” he says, realising that ‘enchanté’ might’ve been a better choice.

“Stensland,” Clyde repeats in his thick accent, and Stensland’s stomach flips. “I like that name.”

“Huh. Thanks.”

Clyde smiles, his floppy hair falling in his face as he looks down and blushes. Stensland thinks he’s high for a moment and it’s an episode of Dawson’s Creek unfolding in front of him; awkward drunk tries to flirt with handsome barman and somehow, it works.

“So,” Clyde says, clearing his throat. “You got issues? I’m'a listenin’.”

“Fuck,” Stensland rolls his eyes. “How long have you got?”

“All night,” Clyde replies. “Then maybe some time at my place after I close the bar.”

Stensland scoffs, laughs. It’s the best offer he’s had since Morgan seduced him only, this time, Stensland gets the feeling that a quick fuck isn’t on the cards for Clyde. He wants the same thing Stensland wants.

Love.

So I have this EX who always seems to find a way to pop back into my life after we have gone our separate ways. My feelings for him have never gone away and I don't think his has either. He's kind of a douche bag sometimes and he isn't really on my level spiritually. He just got a new girlfriend and it's hurting me but I know I deserve someone better than him. I just want to get over him because he never fails to disappoint me. Do you have any tips on how to get over him?

Why is it hurting you? A guy that’s no good for you has moved on. Take it as a blessing and choose to move on. You’re holding on to a relationship that doesn’t exist. Ground yourself in reality and choose to move forward

THANKS FOR 1,200!!

Ahhh here we are again! I’m not gonna lie, but I was so shocked to see that I had gotten 100 new followers in the span of two weeks!! To some other blogs, it’s probably nothing, but to a humble little blog like, it’s quite a big deal!! So I just want to take the time to say thank you for your little likes and reblogs because without them, my blog wouldn’t be where it is today!!

Before I get onto the tagging, I’m just gonna tag one of my new mutuals. You know how I tagged my mutuals in my 1000 follower post, yeh I’m just gonna do it here cause I became mutuals with this darling after I got 1000. So this new mutual of mine is @vangoghwithaflo. (Sou is actually so sweet, like, he tells me to have a good day and everything. But he’s such a late sleeper. Sou if you’re reading this now and it’s past 10pm, I will expose the fact that *** **** * *** ****** ** y*** ****** **** *** ********)hehe LOVE U SOU😂😂❤

So without further to do, I shall get on with the tagging! (you can see my other follower posts here btw)

THANK YOU FOR ALL THE LOVE!

Keep reading

Would you mind sharing how did you stopped your duck from being cleaned up? I have a similar problem with my wineglasses, but I haven't got around to focusing on fixing it yet! Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance!

(posting this publically since i’m not sure if the links would show up in a private reply, hope that’s okay!)

basically i created a new decorative item using the duck’s mesh. i did it mostly by following this tutorial on the sims4studio forums - it took some (by which i mean a lot) trial and error because i’m super new to this and had zero idea what i was doing. to put it shortly (i can make a longer, more detailed explanation if you want, but that’s going to take more time!), i used the mesh of the two stacked books as the base, appended the duck’s mesh into it in blender, removed the books’ mesh (and changed the cut number of the duck’s mesh from 0 into 1, something i forgot to do at first and it was Not Good), removed the transformBone that was in the duck’s mesh, then in the books’ package file i replaced its mesh with the newly made duck mesh, then finally replaced the texture/normal/specular maps with those of the duck’s. 

it’s probably not a very well done conversion, i’m sure someone with more experience could’ve done a much better job, but it works well enough for me!

How long does it take to get used to a packer usually?

Lee says:

I usually have a bit of an adjustment period when I get a new packer as I figure out what the best way to position it is and practice using it if it’s an STP packer, but I’d say how long it takes to get used to it can vary. It usually takes about a week for me to get used to a new one.

If it’s a packer that’s pretty different from your last packer in size it’ll take longer to get used to it than if you got one in a similar size, and if it’s an STP it may take longer than if it’s not an STP. It also depends on how often you use it.

How do you get the marriage, pregnancy, and death announcements? Is it part of MCCC? I only get moving announcements. I'm sorry if this is an obvious question, I'm still new to MCCC and mods and stuff!

It is part of MCCC, I think it’s part of the pregnancy module. So if you’ve got that in, just check your settings in that and if you have townie pregnancy enabled etc.

Hi~ sorry if you already explain it, i'm new in your blog and was wondering why you don't like Leiftan? :o and do you have a favorite one in eldarya?^^

I always thought he was shady, never got a good feeling from him, and after episode 17 it’s now very obvious that he’s a horrible person….demon…thing? And favorite character mmmmmm I think it has to be Nevra I think he’s a really well thought out character and he has a lot of different sides to him depending on his relations and it’s neat to see

as much as it’s been a good learning experience working as a sub for for almost a year now, i’m way too much of an emotional wreck to keep working as one. You need a tough shell and the circumstances are cracking mine open. I’m going to push myself to work until christmas, bc it’s not that far, and then take some vacation again. I’m such a fucking mess..
