i know its terrible but still

I don’t have anyone to play co-op with for Cuphead, so I don’t really get to see Mugman all that much. It’s kind of a shame that he only really appears for the cutscenes and during Co-Op play. I don’t know how much having a CPU would affect gameplay, but sometimes I wish you could at least switch between which character you want to play as. Still, it does give me this funny image that when there’s no second player, Mugman is just kind of on the sidelines off-screen, maybe carrying all the contracts, and also cheering Cuphead on while Cuphead gets his teeth kicked in by whichever boss they’re battling next.

And he says Noct’s the spoiled brat.  Ramen every night AND a bedtime story from Cor at every rest point?! Geez~ well Happy Birthday big guy, we love you ♥

Also I love how close together the first few rest points are.  I can just imagine Cor getting really irritated with Gladio stopping every twenty feet to eat more ramen and probe him for information.

It's not just the food that's revolting.

(long story)

Back in my college days, I lived on campus and ate the 20-meals-a-week meal plan at the cafeteria. It was… terrible. Seriously. I know people complain about their college cafeteria all the time, but they still gain their “freshman 15”. I lost mine. The food was disgusting. Sunday spaghetti was made from tomato sauce and Saturday’s cheap hamburgers. One week they didn’t bother ripping up the hamburgers: watery, sauce-tinted, overcooked noodles garnished with dry, leathery, two-day-old hamburger patties. It was still better than the other options. At first, they had a “make your own pizza” line, but removed it because everyone was using it, and “bread isn’t cheap.” I remember seeing a real salad in their “healthy eats” line and getting excited, because it’s hard to screw up salads, only to realize that it was literally floating in oil. The salad on the actual salad bar was not an option; it was changed out every morning, whether it needed it or not. Oh, sorry, I meant the ice in the salad bar. Not the salad, no. A student wrote his initials in the tuna and it remained for a solid week. Sometimes the salad would grow its own salad.

They had a big board set up for student complaints, and they would write responses back. Oddly enough, the board rarely had bad things to say; the manager, may he be haunted by a thousand bedbugs, confessed that he didn’t have time to answer every complaint, but he did read every one, and took the complaints into consideration. And, as far as we could tell, threw away all the ones he didn’t like.

Your senior year roommate calls herself Clarity. She’s very small and rumpled and distant, and she goes for long walks in the forest south of campus when she’s frustrated. You aren’t friends, but you coexist peacefully. It’s enough.

The creature on your co-owned Walmart futon isn’t Clarity.

It looks like her. Enough to fool a casual observer, certainly. Enough to fool someone who hasn’t been soldering sterling silver for six hours. But you have, and the truth of silver lingers, and the Thing That Looks Like Clarity is sprouting delicate flowers from the skin of its bare shoulders.

It’s sitting cross-legged and perfectly, terribly still, tracking your eyes as you take all this in. When you sigh and set down your backpack, it says, “Hello, smith. There didn’t seem to be any sense in pretending.”

“Jeweler,” you say, and, “I go by Florence, these days. What should I call you?”

It blinks, languid and slow. “I’m not here to usurp. I’m a… placeholder.”

“It’s still confusing as shit, my guy.”

It considers this at length. Finally, with the air of one who has just solved a great puzzle, it says “Claire. We will know, the two of us.”

“Works for me. Nice meeting you, Claire.”

And that seems to be all there is to say. Your roommate’s been stolen by the Fair Folk, you’re living with a changeling, and there’s not much you can do about either of these things. You scroll through Instagram until it gets tired of watching you and wanders out into the hallway.

So that’s Claire.

I love how in this scene Yu is literally ready to follow Yosuke anywhere

Meanwhile the others are like “Bruh. No way. You’re on your own on this one.”

I NEED TO GET THIS OUT OF MY SYSTEM i’m sorry

(i keep imagining unnecessary subtext from every rival encounter and this is the only way to vent them orz)

Villain or Hero Edition:

-“You’re going to save them and for what? They don’t appreciate you!”

-“You spill your blood for this city/village and for what? So they can never know the name of the man/woman who saved their miserable lives?”

-“How many times are you going to bleed for them?”

-“Aren’t you tired yet? Haven’t you had enough?”

-“Despair, misery, and chaos. It’s like air to me. But to watch them suffer is much more entertaining.”

-“Look at their miserable lives and tell me what you see. They’re just begging for you to end them.”

-“You’re conflicted I can see it. You don’t want to be the hero but you’re not evil enough to be the villain. So what are you?”

-“You can’t be nothing because you have to be something.”

-“You can’t be nobody you have to be somebody. They need you. Help them.”

-“You’ve shed enough blood. It’s time to stop. You’ve avenged their deaths enough.”

-“You’ve fought until your face was bloody, your ribs cracked, and your soul broken. How much more can you give to them!”

-“You won’t be satisfied until your dead.”

-“This city/village has torn you apart. They don’t deserve anymore saving.”

-“You’d give your soul to them? They won’t ever be satisfied until you’re dead.”

-“You give and you give and give when is it your turn to take?”

-“You’ll burn this city/village to the ground. Murder its people. And then will you be satisfied?”

-“I can’t watch you tear yourself apart anymore for these people.”

-“You’re cruel.”

-“You’ve been caught. There’s nothing more you can do so why are you still fighting?”

-“It’s over. It was a long war filled with countless bodies and bloodshed. So stop…it’s over.”

-“I know you. You aren’t this terrible person people see you as and made you become. There’s still some light within you. I see it…”

-“What has the world done to you to make you feel this broken that you feel the need to hurt other people?”

-“You hurt others because they hurt you.”

-“I can see the torment within you. I can especially tell by the way you mangle the bodies of your enemies.”

-“You don’t owe people anything else.”

-“You’re like the sun and moon. You can either be the light that guides peoples lives to a better world. Or you can be the moon and darken their world. Or- you can be an eclipse and be a little bit of both good and evil.”

-“What do YOU want to become?”

-“You’re the only one who can give others hope.”

-“If it wasn’t for you we’d all be dead.”

-“The histories will never know who really saved us because he/she didn’t want to be known as a hero.”

-“Don’t die for our selfish selves.”

-“You brought this upon yourself.”

-“You can either save lives or take them. So which is it? Who will you become?”

-“You say you’d burn the city/village to the ground. But what happens when you’re standing on a pile of ash and smoke with no subjects to rule?”

-“Your mentor molded you to be a monster.”

-“Your mentor molded you to be a beckon of hope for others.”

-“They will never bow to you.”

-“You’re nothing but a usurper from a foreign place to us. We will never call you King/Queen.”

-“You hide behind a mask all the time and I don’t mean the one upon your face.”

-“Of all the things to have happened to you are you still capable of love?”

-“You were born a villain but you will die a hero.”

-“You were born a hero but will die a villain.”

-“You’ve changed since we first met. You’re becoming something I don’t recognize anymore.”

-“You’re no longer a man. You’re a beast.”

-“Greatness was thrust upon you but you decided not to take it. Why?”

-“We don’t choose these roles they just happen.”

-“I won’t watch you die.”

-“What are you fighting for?”

-“Fates can be changed there’s still time.”

-“Your fate isn’t set in stone.”

-“There’s pain in my chest every time I see you in anguish.”

-“You never meant anything to them. So you turned into the thing they feared the most to leave an impression upon them.”

-“I wish you could see your worth.”

-“Your life is not worth the weight of gold they will pay you for helping them.”

-“I won’t watch you become someone I don’t recognize.”

-“I can’t even say who are you becoming because I don’t even know what you are anymore.

-"When they write of your history they will say it began on this day.”

-“Your scars are a reminder of who you were. So never forget who bled for this village/city. Who it was that saved the damned and the good. Who it was that almost died for them. Who it was that became a legend in their eyes. A legend to be remembered a thousand years from now.”

A teifling druid, gnome ranger, elven wizard, and human paladin walk into a long dead king’s buried ruins of a keep.

Paladin, walking over a grate with some kind of putrid liquid below: “I wonder why it’s still wet…”

Druid: “Maybe there’s monsters down there.”

Paladin: “Yeah. Maybe its filled with shit demons.”

Everyone stares at Paladin as I (the GM) start cracking up.

Paladin: “You know. Like Excre-mentals!”

NHL Playoff Standings as of the morning of April 21st, 2017.

itallstartedwithamedicnamedfabi  asked:

What are your feelings towards The Amazing World Of Gumball now after that SJW callout episode?

i still love it, the episode was fuckin dead on and good lmao. its not “anti-sjw” their whole fuckin point of the episode was that being a good person is good, but using sj topics as cannon fodder to tear down ur opponents in an argument by making them sound like terrible people is a shit thing to do that genuinely does harm the actual causes.

i know directly calling it by name turns a lot of ppl off because they assume the show targeting sjws on tumblr = being anti-sjw (in the ‘racism isnt real!’ and ‘feminism is cancer!’ sense), but like … watch the full episode and tell me theyre not right, tell me u havent seen people acting like that before. its an issue especially with younger kids on tumblr between like 13-15, they dont know why theyre using certain arguments they just recite what they hear other people say and they weaponize it. its like, a genuine lack of actual thought & it does diminish the fights against discrimination by not taking it seriously.

that cactus character may have been snobby and annoying, but she wasnt a bad person, so it was wrong of gumball to try to frame her as one just to tear her down for being a bit stuck up. and the scene where he went “looking for receipts” by finding out she used to be a bad person and then wanting to show the whole school (fuckin … literally call outs do i even need to clarify) was wrong of him because clearly she wasnt like that anymore and she wasnt trying to hide it, just trying to move on. it was a good episode i didnt get any bad vibes from it

the closest thing it’s always sunny in philadelphia has to a leading romance à la rachel and ross or jim and pam is a twelve-season will-they-or-won’t-they between two of their main male characters. ordinarily the “straight best friends with homoerotic tendencies” trope never genuinely puts pressure on the nature of the characters’ relationship, always ending with the pair receiving their respective girlfriends or wives. gayness itself becomes the punchline in cases like these, but sunny—a dark social-satire whose thesis continually subverts sitcom tropes—has managed to push a storyline that may have started as just another cliche joke into previously uncharted waters. the romantic aspect of mac and dennis’ relationship isn’t ridiculed or dismissed as ‘platonic,’ ‘brotherly,’ or ‘only in the fan’s minds,’ by the creators (who, for those who don’t watch the show, are also the characters’ actors and main writers); instead, it’s been built into the fabric of the show from the very beginning, and is constantly reinforced in canon and commentary. while it’s far from a traditional ‘slow burn’ given the show’s tone and the characters’ largely toxic, unhealthy behaviors, the relationship isn’t a rushed, sidelined gay storyline between minor characters, a one-off attempt to please a certain fragment of the audience, or a gay relationship established at the onset among a cast of other heterosexual relationships either. 

since the show’s start in 2005, the show has progressed mac and dennis’ more-than-platonic relationship from comedic subtext to genuine text, allowing one of the main characters to ultimately come out of the closet and begin blatantly addressing his previously hinted-at feelings for the other in multiple episodes of the most recent season. the show has managed to present the relationship in a way that doesn’t make gayness the butt of the joke, instead driving humor from the characters’ inability to come to terms with their sexualities and latent feelings for one another. despite its biting satire and dark roots, sunny allows for rare sentimental moments that feel more genuine than those on other shows with canon homosexual relationships. whether or not mac and dennis’ relationship is ever officially consummated, i honestly can’t think of any other sitcom, or drama for that matter, that has done anything like this in the history of television. 

why don’t they have an emmy. why when shows like big bang theory are lauded for making stupid gay jokes about raj and howard and even though its nearing a run as long as sunny’s penny/leonard still feels just as predictably uninspired as it did in its infancy 

now that the episode is public, smth Really Important to me from the latest ep:

so like. caboose actively seeking simmons out and keeping him company? and talking abt church and asking about grif when simmons gets sad? is literally all i ever needed. Ever

they’re both against splitting up in the first place, so caboose seeks simmons out so they can keep each other company and “split up together” which is so good. and then they have a whole convo abt death and ghosts and simmons treats cabooses ideas (people turning into ghosts, specifically bc u care about them) as actual theories and debates them which is So Good.

they both lost their best friends and they both know what the other person is goin thru and im just. so emotional. the friendship we need and deserve honestly

Another quote collection, all from a single session (amazingly). Same game and group as ADHD Monk and the Vampire in debt to the mob.

Rogue tries to crawl inside a chest
GM (Me): all aboard the idiot boat.
Paladin: You’re all idiots.

ADHD Monk and Rogue abandon party to open a door, while the rest of the party fights skeletons.
Paladin: So its just like… We’re fighting Skeletor now.
Rogue: *Links Masters of the Universe*
Monk: Wait, they made a live action Master of the Universe movie?
Paladin: It wasn’t that good. It was almost as bad as abandoning the party to go open a door.

Monk gets hit by trap.
GM: What have we learned about splitting the party?
Rogue: Hey, we cleared out the traps.
Monk: “Dear Princess Celestia, I DIDN’T LEARN ANYTHING!”

I’m mumbling while a skeleton is attacked
GM: Meanwhile… and suddenly.
Monk: Meanwhile at the legion of Doom!
Observer: You do realize Skeletor is from a different cartoon right?

Rogue getting help for Monk hit by a falling stone trap.
GM: Why didn’t (Monk) come get the healer?
Monk: Because I’m unconscious
GM: But you’re only at half health
Monk: I was hit by a massive stone
GM: But-
Monk: I’M A GOOD ROLE PLAYER!

Monk: I’m opening the door, not even checking for traps
GM: You’re not even checking for traps?
Monk: When has anything bad ever happened?
GM: You JUST got hit by a stone doing this
Monk: I’ll be fine.
GM: *Sigh* Well the door is locked anyways
Monk: Oh… Okay.
Rogue: I could just Rapier it.
Monk: That would be dumb.

I don’t even know this context:
Rogue: If only I had a Crossbow to shoot things from range
Monk: Too bad we don’t have that
Rogue: Totally, we didn’t find that in a chest.

Rogue: Okay Monk, you can kick the Door now. (ooc) I back out of the room
Monk: No you don’t.

Monk: I Boop the door’s snoot

GM: (at Rogue) The door is unaware of your presence, add your sneak attack.
Paladin: We pissed off the GM haven’t we?

Monk: *breaks down door*
GM: You break down the door and see some Shadows
Rogue: I close the door
GM: The door the Monk just broke down?
Rogue: No, the door behind them.

Monk: The GM is hanging themselves
GM (me): (tired, not noticing what I’m saying) I wish I was hanging myself.
Everyone: *Laughs*

Group suddenly remembers an item I gave them.
Monk: Wait, we have cell phones!
Everyone: *Vibrating noises*

Rogue (On Magic “Phone”): Hey, (Sorcerer), we’re by the big statue, come and help us.
Sorcerer: I don’t want to come.
Rogue: Tell the Paladin.
Sorcerer: No.
Rogue: I text the Paladin, “Spoopy Ghosts, send help”.
Paladin: After all that? Why?

GM: All of this role-play… AND WE STILL HAVEN’T ROLLED INITIATIVE!

Paladin: My familiar is sick of your shit, and leaves you guys.
Monk: Your Owl cares more about being sick of us than helping us?
Paladin: I’m the chosen one.
Rogue: IT’S A DEMON OWL! YOUR OWL IS EVIL!
Paladin: I’m sick of your shit too.
Rogue: Don’t you remember the good times?
Paladin: No.
Rogue: See, its effecting your memory!
GM: But wouldn’t it be the reverse? If he could only remember good times with that owl?
Paladin: I can only remember terrible pain this entire campaign.

Paladin: You know what? I’m just gonna become an Anti-Paladin now.
Rogue: YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE!
Paladin: I know, right.
Monk: God damn it Anakin.

Rogue: What’s the GM doing?
GM: I’m recording all this for prosperity
Rogue: You get the part about the Demon Owl?
GM:(Misheard) WHAT?!
Rogue: Yeah, the Owl is a demonic entity now.
GM: Oh yeah, I got that.
Monk: What are you using to record this?
GM: Notepad
Monk: Some dedication.

Rogue: (Paladin) just uses his head to opens doors.
Monk: As in, he head-butts doors.

Happy Birthday @percyyoulittleshit!
Even though you love Dallas BBQ you’re still such amazing human being! Don’t forget how amazing you are!

Sometimes you gotta make your own ship content, be the change you want to see in the world. Messy but fun comic, and a little fic under the cut. I’m most definitely not a writer, and incredibly rusty, but enjoy nonetheless?

Pangur, as you know, is an extraordinarily beautiful cat, and yet so many pictures of her are so unflattering. Is this a conscious choice you make when deciding what pictures to post, or is she really just that good at making terrible faces? Like, it's possible to be drop-dead gorgeous AND still be one of those people who just always happens to be making the worst faces during pictures and I feel like this is the case for her.

she’s a white tube with good cheekbones - when she’s doing something & it makes me think ‘I love my cat’, I take a photo & post it

“Hi Gorgeous, I’m Jerome. So what a pretty lil thing like you is doing in a terrible place like this?”

  • Me before encountering anti Kylo bs on my dash: Kylo Ren is a highly complex character and will most likely only grow in complexity as the trilogy goes on. We don't yet know much about his motivations for doing the terrible things he does, but the fact stands that he has gone too far down the dark path to come back without significant effort and suffering on his part. He can still find redemption, but it's extremely unlikely that he will have a traditionally happy ending the way many fans want him to. Even though he was manipulated by Snoke, many of his choices were still his own and the narrative as well as the audience will demand retribution for that.
  • Me after encountering anti Kylo bs on my dash: Wow I can't wait for the final shot of Episode IX to be Kylo Ren smiling as he's engulfed in a group hug from his polyamorous life partners Rey, Finn, and Poe, while the baby ewoks they've adopted dance around their feet and the two previous Trios all smile down on them from above
Is Kara Danvers really so bad at baking? (A short demi-serious Meta)

In episode 02x18 it is shown to us that Kara Danvers probably can’t bake to save her life, case in point:

(Spoiler: it may not be all your fault.)

Originally posted by captain-narraboth

Now, I start from the premise that our heroine isn’t used to bake much, supposition seemingly supported by the fact that she needs a video tutorial to bake whatever she is trying to bake (even at the 5th try), and the fact that after 5 botched attempt she still has no clue what’s wrong, so this post will not push the thesis that Kara is secretly a genius backer that for whatever reason got in a baking slump.

My thesis is that although Kara is at best a mediocre to passable baker there is a reason for what has been shown to us, and to know the culprit we have to go back in time of more than a year and an half (in universe time), and more exactly at episode 01x05:

As you can see from this frame from that episode we are told (through Eliza Danvers words) that Kara’s oven has some problems when Eliza can’t cook the Thanksgiving turkey properly with it (It is a heating problem? It is ventilation? Who knows! Can you feel the thrill of mystery?), so she has to ask Kara to use her heat vision to finish the cooking.


Now, I can already hear you say, “But, if the oven had problems surely by now she had it repaired or replaced!“

To this statement I reply with this frame I took from episode 02x08, set a year later during the next thanksgiving day (and around 8-9 months before the baking shenanigans), that makes me think that no, the oven is still sitting there with whatever is its problem unresolved:


and two days before, near the end of episode 02x07:


In conclusion, Kara’s oven needs to be repaired or to be trashed and probably she doesn’t use it much anyway.


(Disclaimer: I know the “oven saga” is simply an excuse for the writers to put a domestic heat vision scene here and there, but what is fandom if not a place where filling the gaps in the stories and expanding their worlds? Plus if you want to headcanon a not so terrible at baking Kara Danvers now you have a Canon reason).
