You know what I love in rewatching when Percy gives Vex her title - watching exactly when the cast reacts.

Matt obviously never breaks fucking character.

Marisha knew from the previous episode so she’s got this sort of smug smile the whole time like ‘yeah that’s right - he ‘bout to do That’

Travis kinda waits to the end like ‘oh shit he did That’

Sam gets A Look the second Percy says “it’s Lady Vex’ahlia” because, like much of the shippers, I’m pretty sure his mind went straight it ‘are we about to do a fake married trope???’ 

But Liam and Laura I love most, because Liam and Laura don’t react really (I mean Laura reacts a little to “it’s Lady Vex’ahlia” like ‘yes you have my attention’), but they don’t really really react until Percy says “Whitestone”.

Liam’s eyebrows shoot up and that, that is where Laura’s jaw just drops

And that’s just… thinking of those reactions in terms of characters it works so well. Like I think both Vex and Vax were aware that Percy was being a Pretentious Dick on purpose to fuck with their asshole dad, and they were cool with it. And I think both of them wouldn’t have been THAT surprised if Percy had gone ‘fake married’ trope, or just pulled a convincing-sounding title out of his ass for the conversation. 

But Percy gives her a part of Whitestone. Whitestone, which means everything to him. And it’s no wonder that Vex tells him (well, tells his dead body) that THAT is why it meant so much to her, THAT is what made her fall in love with him. He didn’t just give her a title, he gave her a part of him.

At first when Judar revealed that Nerva fell into depravity my mind was screaming ‘lazy writing’. However, when it turned out that the reason why Nerva, who’s a a delusional, megalomaniacal, spoiled, rich man-child who looks down on everyone, fell into depravity was because Judar reduced him into a slave, it turned out rather funny. It actually makes sense to me:

Every time someone falls into depravity it turns out dark and tragic, but I appreciate that the author tried a comical approach this time. I like Nerva because he’s a comic relief who kind of reminds me of Koubun, but his character reminds me of this quote by Reinhard from Legend of the Galactic Heroes: 

'Heredity concerns family background, not personal abilities. Those who blindly believe in such a theory are normally guys who are happy with their present conditions. They’re the real weaklings. Those who are proud of their ancestors are fellows who’ve done nothing to be proud of themselves.’

I’m disappointed that we won’t get to see how Shax DE looks like, but maybe Ohtaka will pull a DBZ and he masters it when someone attacks him and he’s backed into a corner?

From the Critical Role Live Q & A! My friend @psycartist / @atleastthreesketchbooks asked the best question of the night :)

“Ever since Taliesin did the crow noise awhile ago, I wanted to know if there are any sound effects that you guys are personally really proud of?”

people talking about genetics, like yes obviously if your parents are obese you’re probably gonna grow up fat too because they probably never taught you about healthy eating and exercise. But here’s the thing. You CAN change those habits. It’s not set in stone that you have to be obese forever. You can make an effort to not be like your parents and change your lifestyle! YOU CAN BE HEALTHY IF YOU SET YOUR MIND TO IT

The headline read, "Memories Can Be Inherited, and Scientists May Have Just Figured Out How"

After reading the article I realized that it should have read more like, “Scientists Find RNA Mechanism for Epigenetic Heredity in Worms”

Welcome to the age of click-bait. If you get your (science) news by skimming the headlines, it’s safe to say you’re misinformed.

Britney Spears invented dogs in 2002 through a process now referred to as “selective breeding”. She began in 1996 when she bred her two short-haired guinea pigs, Coco and Buddy. Year after year, Spears would breed the largest and most distinctive guinea pigs from each litter and eventually broke the world record for the largest guinea pig (Jimbo, 6.2 kg, 1999). Over the course of 6 years and 8 generations, a significant genetic mutation occurred and the first dog (Bit Bit) was born. Spears continues to breed dogs to this day and produces beloved pets for families all around the world.
