i guess this could be a win

So I just wanted to tell my story about going to see HTTYD2 for the umpteenth time and finding out I picked “daycare day” at the movies.

Okay so seeing HTTYD2 with a bunch of kids was actually really incredible. 

So the theater is completely packed, and I end up at the end of a row of daycare kids, right?

So we’re watching the movie, and I realize it’s enjoyable because these fresh faces are all laughing and experiencing the antics of dragon racing and seeing all these cool things for the first time, and it’s kind of fun to see a joke aimed for kids hit home with the kids - you’d hear the kids explode with laughter while the adults would just kind of chuckle inwardly. I don’t know, it was fun to experience it as a a child secondhand. 

But I’ve seen HTTYD2 before, so I know what’s coming. 

When the Bewilderbeast was killed, there was a little boy in my row who kind of whisper-asked if he was “really dead”.

And the little boy right next to me said, “Probably not”.

Probably not.”

Now that stuck out to me because, on screen, it’s so obvious that the Bewilderbeast is dead, and you see all the characters react to it. 

But this little 5-6 year old is viewing movies in a completely different way than I am. And it takes me a moment to realize that almost every movie this kid has probably ever been exposed to has been made “for kids” - which means that if there’s ever a “good” character that “dies”, they almost always come back through some miracle. Hence “Probably not.”

This little kid was recognizing the trope used in films directed for his age group, and as a result, he wasn’t affected by the Bewilderbeast’s death. 

Until the Bewilderbeast didn’t get up. 

It was weird, you could actually feel it in the room when the kids began to realize that the Good Bewilderbeast not only didn’t win, but died. 

And so, a few minutes later, you could hear a pin drop in the theater when Stoick was hit. 

One little girl in my row laughed really hard at the sight - I guess the blue-green ice piled on Stoick seemed comical?

But the minute Hiccup ran over and started pulling the ice off him, desperate and scared, the audience fell back into silence.

Valka rushed over to him, and put her ear to his chest and-

“Is he dead?”

The same kid from before, but this time he sounded scared. 

And the little boy next to me was far less certain when he said, “Probably not?”

And so, we go to the funeral scene. Gobber begins his eulogy, and I hear kids begin to cry. We see the boat, and the draped body, and the helmet, and a kid asks “Is he sick?”

And then the funeral pyre is lit, and the boat sails away, and I look around me and the kid next to me has tears streaming down his face, and the little girl who laughed is crying behind her hands. 

Of course, moments after Hiccup’s monologue, we see them flying on the baby dragons, and the kids are quick to laugh and move on from the heaviness of what they just saw.

And I realize that this is probably the first time that the majority of these kids have had to face death like this. In an animated movie with dragons and vikings, they expected a fairytale, and they got something much closer to reality. 

And for ten minutes, a theater full of children faced reality with Fun-Dip and popcorn. And they cried. 

Now I’ve read the article that claims HTTYD2 didn’t do as well in American theaters because parents warned other parents it “wasn’t for kids”, but I would argue that it was. Of course, I love the movie, so it’s for adults, too, but the target audience wasn’t me. 

Parents argued that the Death theme was too much for a young audience (and I respect parents choosing to shield their kids from death for as long as possible), but I saw with my own eyes kids realize that death was a thing that happened to everyone, not just bad guys. And they mourned when a good character died. And I think that lesson is important for kids to have. 

There were of course fantastic elements to HTTYD2, but those elements were part of a fantastic world that has always been anchored in reality. In the first film, Hiccup lost his leg because filmmakers decided it wasn’t believable that he went through that epic fight and came out unscathed. And so it was in HTTYD2.

Good people went to war, and good people died. 

And I think its a valuable lesson for children to have, especially delivered in animated form, when they can experience it with a kind of silver screen barrier between Death and themselves. 

Get Out.

A/N: Alright homies, I apologize it has taken me so long to upload something. I’ve been reaally stressed. So hopefully this is okay? For the anon that requested this, I hope you like it. I’d love some feedback, as always. Enjoy reading!


Dark, gray clouds blocked any source of light from shining through the big, thick glass windows surrounding every inch of the building.

The entire tower was filled with a solemn mood that spread into every corner and room.

Most of the team dreaded days like these, since it put a damper on their mood, (especially Steve).

You, however, cherished days like these the most.

It’s where you find your peace and inner self, no matter how depressing that may sound.

It helps you relax and release any stresses that corrupt your thoughts.

But the best reason of all is that you don’t have to leave the house, even if you had a date with Peter tonight.

However, thinking that idea through, you realized something.

The whole team would be here.

With Peter and you.

During your date.

Well, fuck.

but the worst part was how you didn’t let me feel things. somehow you were always the victim. somehow it was never sorry with you, it was a way for me to feel guilty that i hurt you by needing an apology. i could never be honest with you about what i was feeling because you had a way of turning things so i looked mean. i stripped myself down to the weeds. i tried to understand that this is what you need. you need to see yourself as winning. it just hurts, i guess. that you still mean a lot to me.

Here’s Mirow, a freshwater leviathan. Infinitely patient and clever, she’s always willing to listen to interesting problems and could, potentially, offer her assistance. It’s just difficult to tell whether Mirow intends to help, or if she’s more interested in getting you to move a little, too, close, to her River.
But a 50/50 between being eviscerated or blessed with ancient gator magic is better than nothing, right?

Thanks to everyone who helped me decide on her colors on twitter a while back!

You tied your messy hair up into a ponytail, attempting to get the small, distracting hairs out of your face as you started to take out things from the refrigerator to make Jieun and yourself some lunch.

Hearing small footsteps behind you and a voice call out your name, you turned around from the countertop to see Jieun standing in the middle of the kitchen, her hands rubbing her droopy eyes as she stared up at you, resembling that of a long, lost puppy.

A warm smile spread across your face as you exclaimed, “Hey, look at you, you’re up!” as you lifted the little girl into your arms and spun her around, eliciting small giggles from her mouth before setting her down on the kitchen countertop.

Your eyes glanced towards the time before looking back at Jieun, “Do you feel hungry? It’s almost lunch time.”

She nodded quickly, a big smile spreading across her face when she asked, “Can we eat cookies? I really liked your cookies last time!”

You giggled as you pinched her nose softly, “Uh-huh, you can’t eat cookies for lunch now, can you?! How about we make some macaroni and cheese and then we’ll bake cookies for snack time later? Does that sound like a good idea?”

Her eyes lit up at that as she grinned, “Mac and cheese?! That’s my favorite! Daddy makes it for me all the time.”

“Well then it’s up to you to pick who’s Mac and cheese you like better okay?” you teased, as she nodded happily before whispering to you, “I think you might win Ms. L/N. Daddy sometimes burns the cheese and it turns all black and gooey.”

You laughed at that before saying, “Well, I guess it’s time to teach him how to properly cook huh?”

“Or Ms.L/N could come live with us? Then you can cook delicious food for me and daddy!” Jieun exclaimed, an innocent smile on her face.

Yes hi hello I will give you all the brownies and fluffy blankets I have for a story about Peter please

well, the bitty bug isn’t around much–i understand he has school stuff and also spends most of his time fighting a hilarious menagerie of animal-themed villains–but i was around the first time he met most of the avengers. tony had everyone show up in the common room so he could introduce us. 

parker’s great, but let me tell you, that kid has absolutely no chill. i mean, he can fake it for about thirty seconds, and then he goes full fanboy mode. the introduction to steve was roughly 50/50 ‘sorry about the shield thing’ and ‘can you sign everything i own please.’ he shook hands with thor and the whole time his face was clearly going ‘i did not know they made people this big,’ and that was promptly followed by absolute terror when meeting natasha. smart kid. 

he pretty obviously had no idea who clint was, and sam started snarking him right off the bat. but i guess scott had told him about how they’d first met, so peter had some snappy comebacks about who exactly wins in a fight between a bird and a bug, which i thoroughly enjoyed. 

and then tony introduced him to dr banner, and parker got so flustered about meeting “one of the greatest scientists of our era” that he accidentally turned on his sticky hands and could not turn them off. which is a thing he has i guess?? all i know is that an awkwardly enthusiastic handshake got pretty hilarious when peter realized how long he’d had hold of bruce’s hand and tried to yank his hand back. because peter has superstrength and sticky hands.

and dr banner does not. 

(at least not as himself, anyway.)

so peterbird yanked his hand back, and poor dr banner was yanked forward, and the two of them toppled over. and then they tried to get up, but their hands were still stuck together–and peter had tried to brace dr banner when they fell, so his left hand was stuck to bruce’s chest. so mostly they were just flopping around on the carpet like landed fish. peter was apologizing so much im shocked that he didnt asphyxiate, and dr banner was trying not to laugh at him. 

the rest of us were cackling like lunatics, and tony was being quite offended that peter hadn’t geeked out about meeting him.

it was a pretty good first impression.

Letter - Mother Mother/victuuri for the ficlet prompt!!

i like this song omg! so cute 💖 have something related to the colours soulmate au that @witchfell and i came up with a while back!


Dear Soulmate,

My name is Viktor Nikiforov, and I am six years old. Your colours are blue in my head. I wonder if you are a baby. My teacher Miss Irina hepled me with my spelling. I wish you were older so we can play together. Do you like ice skating? I like ice skating. We can ice skate together when you get older!

Love,
Viktor (age 6, Russia)


Dear Soulmate,

I wonder what colour I am in your head. You are such a beautiful blue in mine, pulsing gently with all of your emotions. We have to meet in order to start hearing each other’s thoughts, so I can’t wait for us to meet so that we can talk secretly through our thoughts too. There’s so many things I’d like to tell you that I can’t tell my parents or Yakov. I would tell my dog, but he can’t talk back like you could. I bet you would like my dog. He is a puppy named Makkachin. I got him for my ninth birthday after I won a skating competition! It wasn’t much, just a regional competition. I want to be good enough for Nationals soon, though!

Love,
Viktor (age 9, Russia)


Dear Soulmate,

Are you skating, too? I can feel you flying in my head somehow. Maybe you are doing something else, but it’s the same feeling I get out on the ice, so I hope it’s because you’re learning how to skate. I was getting a bit scared to have a soulmate who didn’t skate, or who hated skating. I mean, I would still love you even if you hated everything about the ice, but it’s a lot easier this way! I’m preparing for the Junior Grand Prix now. I wanna win gold in the Junior Grand Prix and then move up to Seniors next year and eventually become the world’s best skater. It would be amazing if we could skate on the same ice together, so I hope you work hard at it, too!

I know in my previous letters I don’t talk about much else. But then again I guess there isn’t that much in my life besides skating and my dog Makkachin. My family is nice I guess but my parents are never home, so I spend all the time at the rink with Yakov anyway. My rinkmates are friendly but I can tell they think I’m weird because I’m so focused on becoming the best figure skater. I wish I had you to talk to. You never respond to these, but then I don’t expect you to. 

I wonder where you are, my soulmate, and what you do, and what your family’s like, and if you like dogs. I want to know everything about you. All of your likes and dislikes, all of your hopes and fears. I guess we’re supposed to love each other already, but I don’t know if you will. I’m kinda weird. But maybe you’re a little weird, too. I’d like that, if we were a little weird together.

I tend to ramble these days, so I think I’ll shut up now. 

Love,
Viktor (age 12, Russia)

P.S. My coach and my ballet teacher are soulmates too. And they’re married. I wouldn’t expect you to want to marry me, though! But it’s a thought!

P.P.S. Please say you like dogs!

Types of women on GoT...

The show promotes two types of “popular” female characters:

1. The ones who shed part of their feminity and become androgynous, warrior-like, masculine or have what is considered to be male ‘skills’ = strong, capable and ‘good’ characters loved by fans (examples: Arya, Brienne, Ygritte. Daenerys)

2. The ones who are feminine as in hot, sexy and blatantly sexual = feminine in a way that services male viewers and propagates basically what Cersei told Sansa in S2, that a woman’s weapon (skill) is between her legs (examples: Margaery, Daenerys, Cersei, Shae, Talisa, even Olenna tells the tale of how ‘good’ she was at it to get into old Tyrell’s bed)

Sansa fits into neither category which is why so many people hate her, find her ‘annoying’ or ‘boring’ and wish she would die.

Sansa is feminine in a home-bound, nurturing, caring, gentle and matriarchal kind of way, which is funny enough the stuff that the best queens are made of: instead of confrontational, she is diplomatic, instead of conquering she is defending, instead of taking lives, she preserves lives, instead of seductive, she is loving….and I could go on.

Nobody likes the quiet, sweet, intelligent girl. She’s boring. But guess what, she may just be winning the game in the end. Her fitting into neither the format of ‘warrior woman’ or ‘sexy princess’ actually makes Sansa as outstanding as the colour of her hair. It’s like she is something special hidden in plain sight that is very slowly revealed as the force no one reckoned with. 

And at this point, this is the only thing I’m really looking forward to see on this show.  

anonymous asked:

rfa + v in a hunger games au where they are from the same district as mc? like would they form an alliance with mc, try to kill them like everyone else, etc?

okay but i really love this request even though i haven’t read the books is years oops hopefully this is fine

Zen

  • So he’s definitely the most athletic of the RFA, so he’s got that going for him
  • He would team up with you without hesitation considering he fell in love with MC on the first day in all the routes z e n keep yourself together
  • Anyway you should consider yourself hella lucky because he is willing to do anything to keep the two of you safe, even killing the other tributes
  • He would probably be one of the most likely to kill to keep you safe
  • I could even see him killing other tributes not out of self defense so you could get out of it quicker
  • If it were down to the two of you at the end, I think that he would sacrifice himself so you could live
  • He might be a little hesitant about it, but in the end he would do it 

Yoosung

  • Honestly he’s probably one of the first one’s to get killed even though that makes me so sad to say/think
  • But if he does make it past the cornucopia he is constantly worried
  • His tactic is to hide from everyone else and hope they all end up killing each other
  • I doubt he would form an alliance with you though, he doesn’t trust anyone, and if he didn’t know you at all before this he would probably think that you’re just tying to trick him and kill him later
  • Considering the environment that you’re in, you can’t really blame him
  • Even if he makes it past the cornucopia, I doubt he would last that long
  • Hiding will only get him so far, and he doesn’t have any survival skills

Jaehee

  • She’d definitely get farther that Yoosung, but she wouldn’t be in the last three
  • Imo she’d probably lose 6-4?
  • She’s non confrontational so as soon as it starts, she runs as far away as she can
  • She has pretty good self defense skills though so she could last a little while off of that alone isn’t it canon that she knows like karate or something else? but if it isn’t it should be
  • So if you ask her to team up with you, she’d definitely be hesitant, but after a little bit of thinking she decides to trust you
  • Especially if you did something to win her trust, like saving her from someone else

Jumin

  • Honestly? Like Yoosung, I could see him being one of the first one’s to die
  • But if he does make it past the cornucopia, he would last two days at most
  • He has no survival skills and I doubt he’s that athletic
  • I don’t think he’d form an alliance with anyone, because he doesn’t trust anyone lmao
  • He really has no strategy to how he would survive
  • Like he mostly tries to stay away from people but he’s not really good at hiding and that can only work for so long
  • Probably would get a lot of donations (?) just from how beautiful he is
  • I know I would
  • I mean what?

Seven

  • He could probably make it about half way through
  • He has some idea of how to survive, and he like basically the rest of the rfa lmao tries to stay away from everyone else
  • He’d def team up with you if you asked him
  • Strength in numbers, right?
  • Also if you know literally any survival skills he’ll be happy
  • He would especially team up if he knew you before, because not only could he trust you he’s basically been in love with you since you first met

V

  • Ohhhh oh no
  • Can I just make it so that he’s not blind in this?? cause that wouldn’t be fun to write rip
  • Okay so again, like the rest of the rfa, he’s not going to attack anyone directly
  • He would fight if he had to for self defense, but he wouldn’t kill them
  • I could see him being averagely strong? and has pretty good survival skills so he could probably last a while
  • He probably could win if he was willing to kill the other tributes
  • He would definitely team up with you
  • Or really anyone, he doesn’t really want to be in it by himself, if you’re the first person to ask him then yeah

Will Solace.

Those two damn words had completely messed up Nico’s head. He tried to avoid those blue eyes, that blonde hair, and yet he found himself thinking of it so very often.

He’d blamed himself for a while– he was an idiot, too easily attached, too stupid, etc. etc.

That hadn’t helped what he refused to believe was a crush. No, it wasn’t a crush– the butterflies in his stomach were because the camp food was weird (he took seconds anyways). The flush of his cheeks when Solace grinned in that way was because of anger, because he hated Solace. He only kept staring at Will because Nico was trying to figure out the best way to injure him in Capture the Flag. Yeah. That was it.

Jason was staunchly not helping, as though he had taken it upon himself to be Nico’s mother or something. He had mentioned this to Jason, once.

“Nah,” Jason had replied. “I’m not your mother. More like an annoying big brother.”

Nico had scoffed and shoved the boy hard enough to topple him.

“And hey,” Jason had continued as he wiped grass stains from his pants, “I can be your best man at the wedding.”

That had saved Jason from another tumble, as Nico had paused, narrowed his eyes. “What wedding?”

“You know,” Jason had said, clearly hiding a smirk. “You and Will’s wedding.”

This time, Jason laughed as he was shoved down the hill.

Reyna was also decidedly not helping. And also decidedly beating him in Mythomagic.

“You’re a coward,” she had said. “Always hiding in the shadows.”

“I’m the son of Hades,” Nico had snapped. “It’s what I do.

“And it nearly got you killed.” And Reyna– as usual –was right.

“Admit your feelings to yourself, at least,” was Reyna’s advice as she put down her Cerberus figurine to fight against Nico’s hydra card.

He gritted his teeth as he put down a chimera, cursing his deck.

“It makes it easier to deal with feelings that exist,” and that gave Nico pause.

It was these things that ran through Nico’s mind as he sat in the Hades cabin.

I have a crush on Will Solace.

He exhaled. Those words were true. He could accept that now. It might end horribly– really, he couldn’t realistically imagine an outcome that was positive –but now he could work on getting over the stupid crush.

And then there was a knock at the door and Nico– figuring it was Jason for their weekly round of Nico solidly destroying Jason in Mythomagic –grabbed his card box and yanked the door open.

“Hey, Nico,” said Will Solace, not Jason, beaming. Nico’s heart beat out of his chest and leapt away to hide somewhere else.

“Oh– uh, hi, Will,” Nico said, looking somewhere around Solace’s left shoulder. Solace was taller than Nico remembered. Or maybe that was just his self-conscious trying to save him by shrinking into the floorboards.

“I was–” and then Will stopped, looking at the box in Nico’s hand. “Is that– Mythomagic?”

There! An opportunity! For what, Nico wasn’t sure. Maybe it was an opportunity to talk to Will more. Or, if he made fun of Nico for his lifelong love enjoyment of a card game, that would be a reason to not crush on him.

“Yeah,” Nico replied, doing his best to make it sound like a “yeah” Yeah and not a “YEAH!” Yeah.

Will’s blue eyes– stop thinking about it stop thinking about it –widened. “Hang on– I can get my box and then we can play!”

His box? William Solace had a Mythomagic card box?

This was not good if Nico wanted to get rid of the crush.

“Uh,” said Nico, “okay.”

And then Will nodded, said something like “I’ll be right back,” and ran off. Nico’s brain had many thoughts just then, not really coherently.

Wow– My crush is a huge dork– Where’s Jason?– Maybe I can win Will’s Cerberus if he has one– This was a mistake– He likes Mythomagic

And then Will returned, face flushed from running in summer heat. He looked absolutely adorable.

“Let’s play,” Will said, beaming. Nico kinda nodded and said something like “uh-huh” and let Will into the cabin.

Distracted as Nico was, he still managed to beat Will– barely. He did not, however, manage to win Will’s Cerberus– which he actually did have.

“Nope,” Will had replied. “It’s one of my favorites.”

And then Nico’s stupid brain skipped over his rational thought and went straight to his mouth: “Oh, so you’re into Hades-type things~?”

What was he thinking? Clearly, he hadn’t been thinking. It wasn’t supposed to sound flirtatious. Actually, it was supposed to have been said at all.

But Will seemed to find it funny, since he laughed and the butterflies in Nico’s stomach distracted him from his screaming mind.

“Yeah,” Will said, grinning at Nico, “you could say that.”

Nico’s brain and mouth worked without him again, and he kept going: “You know, I actually have a certain fondness for Apollo-type cards.”

And then Will had laughed again– really, he had a very nice laugh –and he said, “That reminds me.”

“Of?”

“Of that I was going to–” here Will’s cheeks turned pink “–ask you if you wanted to go out sometime?”

Nico’s brain short-circuited. It was like he had been dipped in the Lethe. He forgot how to speak.

“Uh,” said Nico, “out?”

“Yeah,” said Will, “out.”

“Like,” said Nico, “out… on… a date?”

“Yeah,” said Will, “out on a date.”

Nico didn’t say anything. Then he did.

“I would love to,” he said. And then Will’s ecstatic beam was enough to silence some of the shrieking doubts Nico’s brain was having.

“Great!” Will said, probably a bit too loudly. “Uh– what did you wanna do on the date?”

“You didn’t have a plan?”

“Honestly? I didn’t think I’d get this far.”

And now it was Nico’s turn to laugh, because Will was, in fact, a huge dork.

“We could play Mythomagic,” Nico offered. And Will nodded, face still red.

“Yeah,” said Will, “that would be nice. But wouldn’t that make this a date?”

“Nope,” said Nico, “because you didn’t ask me out until just now.”

“I see,” Will said, trying and failing to not smile. “I guess I’ll just have to step up my game to win your heart.”

“And to beat me in Mythomagic,” Nico replied, ignoring his heart as it leapt back into his chest and started doing acrobatics in there.

And then Will’s grin made this whole mess of emotions worth it.

3. “Do you even own a shirt?!”
Shirts Are For Quitters
Also on ao3

Stiles liked college a lot so far, it was freeing in a way that high school had never been and he had scheduled all of his classes to start after 10 so he got to sleep in. His only issue with college was Derek Hale’s allergy to shirts.

Derek lived two rooms down from him, always had his door open, and never wore a shirt. Ever. Stiles was convinced that Derek went to class without a shirt on, though he had no proof of that because they didn’t have any classes together.

They were a part of a pretty tight group on their floor, they all hung out in the common room after class, went to meals together, and went out together on weekends. In their nearly 8 months of friendship Stiles had seen him wearing a proper shirt twice. Derek even wore tight, white tank tops to pretty much ever meal which hardly counted as a shirt at all.

Stiles was walking home from class one sunny Friday in April when he finally snapped. He had spent the entire year so far suppressing boners when Derek was around, but this was just excessive.  

He couldn’t take his eyes off of Derek’s sweaty chest, with his stupid muscles and his stupid chest hair. “Heads up Stilinski!” Derek yelled as the football that Derek and Isaac had been throwing around got passed Derek and almost hit Stiles.

“Do you even own a shirt?!” Stiles said, his voice higher than usual and his cheeks flushed.

2. Kissing // Nurseydex

« {Part 2 of my Valentine’s collection.} »

a/n: this is loosely inspired by that scene from the webcomic Always Raining Here because i read the whole thing a couple of nights ago and let me tell you, there were feelings. enjoy!

“Eat shit, Nurse,” Dex said, taking another swig of his beer. “I told you that you didn’t stand a chance.”

“No fair, man. I totally would have won if you hadn’t blue-shelled me there at the end,” Nursey grumbled. He set down the Wii remote and got to his feet, trying to figure out how drunk he was. No dizziness or major balance fuckery, it seemed, but his head definitely felt kinda fuzzy. Now was probably a good time to start chugging some water; he still had homework to do later. He went to fish his water bottle out of his backpack.

“I only blue-shelled you because you blue-shelled me the last lap,” Dex said. “I won that fair and square.”

“Psh. If I were sober—”

“Dude, you only had three shots. You’re 6’2”. You’re fine.”

“Yeah, but you only had, like, a beer and a half, so between the two of us, I’m definitely the more impaired one here.”

Dex rolled his eyes. “Just admit I won. Stop being such a sore loser.”

“Well maybe you’re a sore winner.”

“I know you’re an English major, but ‘sore winner’ is not a thing.”

Nursey shook his head in mock outrage. “You come into my house—”

“Your house? This is my dorm room, Nurse,” Dex laughed. “You’re in my dorm room, playing on my Wii, drinking my alcohol.”

“…Touché,” Nursey admitted, returning to his spot next to Dex on Dex’s couch. He was probably sitting a little closer to Dex than was strictly necessary. He could try to blame the shots for that, but like Dex said, he was a 200-pound hockey player. Three shots of Fireball spaced out over the last hour really wasn’t much for someone his size. If he hadn’t been a city boy with no driver’s license, he could probably still legally drive.

The real problem, Nursey thought as he glanced at Dex out of the corner of his eye, wasn’t the alcohol—it was his stupid crush on his attractive yet probably tragically straight teammate. But that wasn’t really something he liked to dwell on.

Which Bioshock character should you fight?
  • Jack Ryan: I mean, you could, but you'd get your ass handed to you. Besides, hasn't this poor baby had enough? Don't fight Jack Ryan.
  • Atlas: Fucking do it. Fucking- I will PAY you to beat the shit out of this Irish bastard. Fight Atlas. Fight Atlas and win.
  • Brigid Tenenbaum: You could fight her, but why? She's done nothing to provoke you. The woman is probably dying of lung cancer anyways. Leave Tenenbaum alone.
  • Sander Cohen: Fight the creepy son of a bitch and bring me back his painted mustache.
  • Andrew Ryan: Sure, fight him. It'll probably change nothing, and you'll garner nothing but the knowledge that you're his test tube bastard, programmed from birth to do the bidding of a looming capitalist overlord.
  • Frank Fontaine: Kill the looming capitalist overlord.
  • Subject Delta: You could, but at what cost? He's a gentle giant. You'd be better off giving him a hug. He's just trying to be a good dad, okay? Don't fight Delta.
  • Sinclair: Sure, you'd win, but what pleasure would you derive from it? I mean, the man's tried to apologize for his wrongdoings. I guess if you're one to hold grudges, then maybe you could fight Sinclair.
  • Eleanor Lamb: She will kick your ass and smile while she does. Just... don't. Don't fight Eleanor Lamb, please.
  • Sofia Lamb: Sure, but it really wouldn't be that great of a fight. She's probably not that strong. You might have to fight off some splicers to get to her, but ultimately it really wouldn't be that satisfying of a victory.
  • Booker Dewitt: Kick his ass. You'll lose, but it'll be totally worth it to kick his teeth in a little bit. Fight Booker Dewitt.
  • Elizabeth Comstock: Look, you could fight Elizabeth. Or you could not mess with space-tearing punch-packing genius babes and leave the room with all bones intact.
  • Zachary Hale Comstock: Fight this man. Fight him to the death. FUCK Zachary Comstock.
  • Daisy Fitzroy: Fight her. But know that you WILL lose and it'll be devastating.
  • Rosalind or Robert Lutece: Don't fight the Lutece twins. They won't land a single blow, they'll just find a universe where you got your ass kicked and your nose will bleed until you die of anemia or something.
Things We Wish We Could Change

Request:  Hi could I request a batsis story? She is Bruce’s biological child but she didn’t become a vigilante so they tend to ignore her (not on purpose but they’re always busy with a case). She goes away for university and when none of them show up to her graduation she decides to cut ties with them.  After a few years (maybe 3 or 4) she gets married to a wealthy businessman and they had a kid(s) together. The batfam didn’t realize that she cut ties with them because of all their cases they thought that she was still at school, when they realize that they haven’t seen her in a while they try to find her. The end is up to you.

Pairing:  Batfam x reader, Ryan(oc)x reader

Summary: You are the forgot Wayne. Forgotten not on my by the public but your own family as well. If you aren’t worth remembering to them then they aren’t worth it to you.

Words Count: 2,750 My longest fic to date!

Genre: Angst

Notes:  So I’ve seen a few fics with a request a lot like this, so if this fic is too much like a fic you have written please tell me and I will take it down. I don’t want to take any credit away from any other amazing author.

The reader in this is a little older than Jason

~REQUESTS ARE OPEN~



“Alfred, when will daddy be home?” 5 year old you asks as the old butler tucks you into your bed.

Alfred’s face falls a bit, but it doesn’t last as he saves face and gives you a reassuring smile.

“You must be mistaken, your father is home mistress (y/n).”

“Then why don’t I see him ever? Why doesn’t he tell me goodnight?” you ask curiously. Back then you were just innocent and naive, you didn’t know why your father was never around, why you weren’t aloud to go into his library, what the big bangs coming from below the house were. You couldn’t explain to your teachers why you never saw your daddy for more than an hour a week if you were lucky or why your butler came to your open houses not your father.  You couldn’t explain why the other boy that lived in the house treated you like you had the black plague.

You see Alfred become physically defeated, “I’m sorry mistress, there are some things even this wise old man doesn’t know.”

You are let down by the answer but you didn’t let Alfred see it.

“It’s OK Alife! no one could know everything” you stress in your little childlike way.

Alfred smiles, “Goodnight (y/n).”

“Goodnight!”
