i’m not gonna write full bios but here r some quick things:
everyone knows jake for either good reasons (he once bought you a ps4 cause why not), bad reasons (started a bar huge bar fight over a dog) or weird reasons (seen passed out in the middle of a dennys at 3 am)
Harley is shy and tends to stay out of the way, but he once Threw Hands with an 80 year old music theory professor because he said the wrong chord progression
So kinda random question but what’s your favorite food to bake? Either because of the way it’s prepared is fun or just the end result being tasty! :D
I like to make brownies. I have a great, easy recipe and it’s very versatile I can add in anything to it and it’s still delish.
Plus, I can pour cheesecake through it and make double fudge cheesecake brownies with white chocolate shavings on top which is just incredible.
And everyone loves a good brownie. No one (barring allergies) is going to look at a thick brownie that’s still warm enough for ice cream to melt on it and be like “that sounds terrible”.
Even people who don’t eat eat a lot of chocolate eat brownies lol which means that when I make them for friends or family, or even when I would package them and send them overseas to my soldier friends, everyone is super excited and I do love to make people happy 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾
- when the episode bills itself as a self-contained, filler-style episode about atlantis but instead addresses the biggest and most compelling mysteries of the entire series, the citadel and evil morty
- when roiland, harmon and co face nigh insurmountable fan expectations for delivering on the narrative promises and payoffs associated with evil morty but yet pull it off and deliver in the most delicious way while setting up even higher stakes for the ultimate revelations to come
- when the FUCKING CALLBACK SONG COMES ON AND YOUR JAW DROPS AT THE ABSOLUTE MASTERY OF STORYTELLING AT WORK. like holy shit, all the 4? 5? narrative threads of this episode interweaving and aligning on one theme, each simultaneously playing up and subverting their respective narrative tropes in that familiar, delightful way this show does so well? that’s just a mastery of craft you don’t see very often, all building up to a final shot and final reveal that just satisfies.
- when you know that it’s not “en vogue” to be this fucking enthusiastic about rick and morty anymore because some of the fans suck in a major way, but you don’t care?? because the show is still this goddamn excellent? fight me
So I’ve seen a couple people talking about hating to see certain pairings and characters when searching on AO3, and I thought I’d take a moment to teach everyone A Thing I Love To Do. You can absolutely and very very easily filter out pairings and characters when you search for fics!
Step one: Find the tag for the character/pairing you want to filter out.
You’re gonna have to click on it (I’M SORRY I KNOW BUT ONLY FOR A SECOND).
Step two: After clicking on that tag you hate, find the RSS Feed button up on top and click that.
This is gonna bring up a screen full of gibberish. But it’s okay! This is good gibberish.
Step three: In the address bar, find the numbers that appear after tags/
That’s the numerical code that AO3 has attached to that tag.
Step four: Copy that number, then paste it in the search bar with a - in front of it
Step five: Success! Pressing search will remove that tag from the search results.
For best results, save all the tags you hate in a document and copy/paste when needed. You can totally stack these filters as much as you want, just make sure there’s a - in front of each tag code.
But Lady, you ask, how does this work? Well, the AO3 search engine, like every single search engine you will ever use, uses something called boolean searching. Putting that - in front of what you don’t want will tell the search engine “show me everything that fits this criteria, EXCEPT NOT this other criteria”.
The problem with AO3 is, if you search “-Character1/Character2″, it will fail to filter out stories tagged with “Character2/Character1″, or any stories where the tag uses a character’s nickname. But thanks to something that AO3 calls tag wrangling, both of those options will be stored within the same numerical code, so that a search for one will also bring up the other. You can use that in your filtering to ensure that all iterations of that pairing you hate will be removed.
WARNING: this currently only applies to character and pairing tags, and only the tags that have gotten enough fics to have been “wrangled” by AO3 and given a tag code. It also won’t work on stories where the tag has been misspelled.
I love the Matt/Shiro BrOTP so have some headcanons that have been sitting in my drafts for weeks
-Matt is a living meme and Shiro questions their friendship every day
-“You know you love me~”
-Everyone questions how someone so calm and mature can be best friends with Matt and Matt kinda laughs in their face
-Matt: Calm? Mature? This guy almost fought a five-year-old over a chocolate bar!
Shiro: I really like the brand oKAY???
-Matt has tried to set Shiro up on one too many dates. It’s really easy since everyone and their mother has a crush on Shiro but Shiro needs Matt to stop.
-He did after a while until Shiro developed a crush on Allura. Cupid Matt was back. Shiro wanted to kill himself.
-Constantly making fun of each other because they love each other
-Shiro: Matt, if you don’t stop, I will literally sit on you.
Matt: Try me.
-You wouldn’t believe how often that happens. Spoil alert: A lot.
-They’re pretty competitive when it comes to each other. Whether it comes to bets or board games. Tears are shed. Friendships are broken. It gets pretty intense.
-Matt: I got to move on and be who I am! I just don’t belong here, I hope you understand! We might find our place in this world someday. But at least for now, I gotta find my own way…
Shiro: Don’t you think you’re being a bit dramatic over a pizza slice?
-Once Shiro ate the last brownie and Matt wouldn’t talk to him for a week. The dude really loves his food.
Matt: This is homophobia at its finest. ://
-Once they had a convo on what their ship name would be if they dated, Shiro came up with Shatt, Matt disowned him
-Death jokes make up half of their friendship.
-Shiro: I’m going to propel myself off of this balcony.
-Matt: Not without me, you’re not.
1.Hey Angel: A Few Very Good Mistakes by @louisandthealien He almost wishes there were a better story.“Fucked up pop star ends five day bender by wandering into a dive bar alone and passing out in public."That would’ve generated press, he thinks, and if there’s one thing that’s constantly on his mind (or more accurately, on the mind of everyone else around him) it’s that all press is good press, and good press is good press but bad press is great press.Besides, he’s 25 and trying to do the whole transition from boyband to solo pop star. He’s pretty sure a press-fueled meltdown is, like, a right of passage.The truth, alas, is a whole lot more boring.—Louis falls asleep in Harry’s bar. Harry takes him home to hang out.

Context: I’m DMing a campaign for four friends. One of my friends is playing an annoyingly perfect and charming fighter (her lowest stat is a 13 in Wisdom), her girlfriend is playing our bard. The others are a rogue and mage but not relevant to this story. The party has entered an inn to stay for the night.
Me: The inn is busy, but not overly crowded. Behind the bar a sweet looking woman looks up and smiles as you enter, gesturing to empty seats at the bar and an empty table nearby
Fighter: I walk up to the bar, smiling my most winning smile In character as the innkeeper I welcome them, tell them our rates etc.
Fighter OOC: I’m going to seduce her
Fighter IC: *leans forward* Thank for that lovely welcome, you really are so charming, perhaps later we could *player burps loudly*
Fighter OOC: CAN I ROLL CHARISMA TO TURN THAT INTO A SEDUCTIVE BURP?!
Me: Sure, why not
Fighter: *rolls a natural 20*
Fighter: I BURP EROTICALLY AT HER
Bard: This is our first date all over again
Me: Was that in character or out of character?
Bard: Can it be both?
And that is how our lesbian fighter seduced an innkeeper by burping in her face.
“Doc Holliday is a ‘Class A’ pain-in-the-ass. But he’s also one of the most loyal, solid, and fierce men I’ve ever met. Yeah, he can be a polecat sometimes, but he’s a changed man. He’s redeemed himself many times over, and I’m proud to call this man my brother.”
Aragorn, direct descendant of Elendil and his son Isildur, both of whom had been seven feet tall, must have nonetheless have been a very tall man … probably at least 6 ft. 6, and Boromir, of high Númenórean lineage, not much shorter
