i still need to add some links

anonymous asked:

Please bombard me with Pining Sherlock fics. I need some.

You asked for it, you got it Nonny! This is literally my favourite trope in the entirety of existence. I have a tonne of fics, and I’m still sorting all of my bookmarks, so I probably still have more to add. I had SO MANY TO PUT ON THIS LIST, that I had to remove links to the authors, because Tumblr kept deleting all my links. So yes, over 150 fics here below, all from mostly Sherlock’s POV (@holmesthesociopath, this should help with your ask as well until I finish the list of Sherlock POV fics for you)!

Because I’ve been working on this list for over 6 months, please advise me of any broken links and I will do my best to find them again for you!

Get ready to have your face ripped off 🙃

“One shot where Rick is saved by Negan after he stops breathing and it’s hella awkward.” (I see what you did there anon ;D )

That’s it for now. There are other fics that I’m interested in and currently following, but I’m still waiting to see how they go and how I feel about them??? So I won’t add them here for now… Will be constantly updating this post I guess.

How do you become vegan?

I guess how depends on why you’re going. Either way though go at your own speed. If you stress yourself out you’re most likely gonna fail. Can cut things out slowly or drop everything at once. Remember why you want to go vegan.

I know there’s more products outside the us, so feel free to add some. It’s like 4:30am so i’ll probably have to reread this and edit it later.

I was originally planning on finishing this for Pride Month but I guess I missed that by a country mile whoops anyway if there’s one thing Lock believes in other than justice it’s having pride in yourself. They believe in you no matter what!!

This was my first ever attempt at soft-shading an entire drawing and…it wasn’t a total disaster? It’s not quite the mood I was aiming for and I think I need to find some better brushes but it’s still significantly better than I anticipated. Onwards and upwards! If people would be interested in a print of this let me know so I can add it to my RedBubble store (or make a run myself) - I’m also planning on doing a traditional version of this and making a  video :)

5,8 and 19 smut game with Bambam plz! The last 1 was just 2 perfect 😍

Title: Playtime 

Pairing: BamBam X Reader Rating: NC-17 

Summary: After your wild three orgasm night with Bam Bam you woke up sore the next morning, annoyed with your boyfriend for how hard he was going last night. Bam Bam on the other hand found this funny and so decided to treat you to a nice day in and relaxing. But as the pain stayed Bam Bam decided to help you find some relief. 

Prompts: ❝That better be your toothbrush I hear princess.❞ |❝Give me a look.❞ 

A/N: This is Part Two of Playtime which is linked here if you want to read that first. In a way, you sort of need to read it to be able to get some of maybe the jokes and all but….you don’t have to. Also I forgot to add in the third one sorry I hope this will do though. Enjoy reading.  

Smut Game Post: here    

You awoke the next morning, straight away feeling a sharp throbbing pain in your centre but choosing to ignore it. Turning your body around while BamBam still held you close to him, his pouty lips still looked glossy from what you can guess from last night.

You were glad he was back now, holding you in his arms and by your side when you would wake up. Trying not to wake him you went to turn around and slip out of bed only causing him to pull your body so it was now pressed up against his own.

His hot butterfly kisses were placed on your neck and shoulder, his smile burnt into your skin as you ran your fingers through his hair. You missed mornings like this where you both could relax and just stay in.

“Good morning princess.” His hoarse voice hummed as he pulled back and opened his eyes to scan over your face.

“Morning baby.” You said smiling slightly before leaning in and giving him a quick kiss.

“What do you want to do today?” You asked and BamBam shrugged, his body not wanting to leave the bed at all.

“Can’t we just stay in? I would prefer to do that. Plus, we still have some home stuff to get done. Like re-painting the playroom.” He said and you nodded, the last word rolling off his tongue with ease and causing you to shiver and that intense feeling to come back.

“Okay.” Was all you said before getting up, a small smirk on BamBam’s face when he saw your thighs clenched together as you waddled to the bathroom.

“Aww, is my princess sore?” He cooed, still laying in the bed propped up on his arm to watch you struggle while walking.

“I’m fine.” You snapped straight away before turning on the shower and waiting for it to warm up, turning back around to the sink and turning on the faucet and washing over your face quickly. You began undressing yourself before you saw BamBam staring at you.

You didn’t know why but you felt a little…self-conscious so you closed the door and locked it before continuing to peel your clothes from your body and getting into the shower. Drowning out BamBam’s singing as he probably made his way downstairs to make you breakfast.

You honestly were finding it hard to stand, you had to lean against the tiles wall to hold yourself up. You just wanted to sit back down so you grabbed the body wash, squirting a few pumps onto your hand before running it all over your body.

Starting with your back and shoulders before moving over your breasts and down to your stomach, not wanting to travel any lower due to the pain. But you needed to wash down there, as soon as your soapy fingers ran over your folds though you yelled in pain.

It hurt, it was stinging like it had been burnt. You know when you get carpet burn on your leg or arm and a layer of skin comes off and it’s sore for hours? That’s what it felt like.

You washed yourself off and stepped out of the shower, grabbing a towel and wrapping it around your body before stepping out of the bathroom and as soon as you did BamBam was there with a worried look on his face.

“Are you okay? Are you hurt?” He asked, turning your body as if looking for blood or something that could have caused you to tell out like that.

“N-no. I-I mean. Yeah but…it’s nothing.” You said trying to not talk about it, even though he was your ‘daddy’ it felt embarrassing to say it out loud. He would only smirk and feel proud of what he did.

“No, love tell me okay? If you’re hurting then it’s serious.” He cooed, tilting your chin to look at him, he could see your eyes slightly watering.

Your cheeks bright red and tears threatening to fall at any given moment.

“M-my clit. It hurts.” You admitted, waiting for him to smirk or say some stupid comment about how he ‘did you well.’ But instead he cupped your face and kissed your forehead.

“Okay, lay down.” He said and like the good girl you are you sat down on the bed. Letting the towel go as it unfolded and you now laid naked.

“Give me a look.” He said hands on your knees and slowly pushing them apart. Leaning forward more and eyes scanning over your slightly wet and swollen folds. Parting them and exposing your clit to the cold air causing your back to arch. He could see how red and sore it was, he tapped it lightly and you let out a small cry of pain.

“Aww, my little princess.” He said with a slightly pout seeing he tears stinging your eyes once again. He quickly grabbed some ointment and squeezed some onto his fingers.

“This will help ease the pain a bit.” He said before placing his fingers to your clit. You hissed as the cold clear paste touched your clit. It did help with the pain, causing it to go away slightly. He stopped rubbing and wiped his hand on your towel before sitting up and allowing you to close your legs. He leaned forward and connected his lips with your pouty ones.

“I’m sorry Daddy. If I hadn’t have been a bad girl and waited then you wouldn’t of had to punish me like that and I wouldn’t be sore.” You said hanging your head low. He tilted your head up once again.

“Princess…I should be the one sorry. I went too hard on you last night thinking you can take it. If I had known you’d be in this much pain I wouldn’t have thought about it.” He said and you smiled before kissing him once again.

“I’ve…made…breakfast.” He said between hot sloppy kisses, you nodded your head and smiled while pulling back.

“Daddy…” You said with doe eyes, knowing the effect of had on him whenever you did it.

“Yes kitten?” He asked and you leaned forward to place a kiss on his jaw lightly.

“I want to eat you for breakfast.” You whispered into his ear while running your hand over his hardening member that was being restricted by his sweats currently.

“Are you sure kitten? You know Daddy like to fuck your throat. I don’t want you to hurt your other pretty lips.” He said but you just kissed him hard, palming him with more force now that he was dying for a release.

You moved off the bed and onto your knees, butt flat against your calves as you waited for him to stand up and once he did you pulled his boxers straight down. Pooling at his ankles while you grabbed him by the base.

“F-fuck. No teasing this morning kitten.” He growled, your thumb running over his tip and spreading the precum before leaning and licking his slit. Sucking on it often which had his sighing before tangling his fingers in your hair.

His way of telling you to take him all in, you had to obey Daddy and prove you were still a good little girl for him. You opened your mouth and allowed him to enter, his cock almost touching the back of your throat.

“Suck kitten.” He said, eyes burning into your own orbs and you began sucking like a vacuum, bobbing your head back and forth while running your tongue flat over the areas you knew he was sensitive. One hand reached up and began playing with his balls, rolling the heavy sack between your palm and fingers lightly while the other gripped his thigh to help steady your pace.

He tried his best to contain himself and let you enjoy your treat but his dominant side took over and he began thrusting into your mouth. His tip hitting the back of your throat with each thrust.

It hurt slightly but you moaned, loving the sight of his face scrunched up as he chased his high. His thighs tensing as he got closer and so to help him reach that satisfaction you began doing one of his favourite things. Swallowing around him, making your throat envelope around the tip of his cock which had his head thrown back and his Adam’s apple moving up and down.

“S-shit. I’m going to cum. Be a good girl and swallow all of daddy’s cum kitten.” And with a few more thrusts he was releasing his seed in your mouth, the sticky warm substance running down your throat. Maintaining eye contact as you swallowed every last drop, licking the corners of your lips for the bits that slipped out of your mouth. You stood up and he embraced you in a big hug.

Did you enjoy your breakfast kitten?” He asked and you nodded, moving your face into the crook of his neck and breathing in his scent. Lavender, the scent of your body wash in the shower.

Days passed and you healed up nicely, taking a break from playtime. You two stayed together like glue majority of the time but not right now. No BamBam had gone to do grocery shopping, yesterday he asked if you were ready to start playtime again but you simply told him you still were slightly sore and you might need two more days.

That was a slight lie, you were fine now and there was no pain. But in a way, you kind of enjoyed it, you enjoyed the time you two had when it wasn’t playtime. You both had serious conversations about the future and plans.

You liked it a lot, but you felt like BamBam was only sticking around because you’re the only person he’s expressed his kinky side to. Even the other members don’t know of his kinky side, he hides himself from people and you felt like if you asked to know more of him he’ll hide away from you too.

You had always said ‘I love you’ to him but it was only for the whole daddy and princess relationship you had going. You, y/n, had never said ‘I love you’ to BamBam. You know it’s dumb and cliché but there was no other way to put it that didn’t sound cliché.

You walked into your play room, grabbing the familiar pink bullet tool and turning it on full blast. Feeling the vibrations in your hand, this is all you were to him. A toy, and once you ran out of juice he would either find new batteries for you or simply buy something else. A better upgrade with more settings to offer, more things it can do. You sighed, lost in thought you didn’t even hear the front door slam shut and the sound of BamBam’s boots stomping around.

He could hear the familiar sound in the silence, knowing exactly what you must be doing. Making his way up the stairs.

That better be your toothbrush I hear princess.” He called out, you didn’t have time to put the toy away and instead just let yourself be caught breaking the rules once again. You sighed, turning around and BamBam was surprised to not see you playing with yourself.

And instead this time just holding it, he held a confused expression. Until he saw your teary eyes and made his way over to you quicker than a flash of a camera.

“What’s wrong? Are you okay?” He asked and you nodded, turning it off and putting it back where it belongs before walking around him and downstairs.

“Y/n, do you want to tell me what’s going on?” He asked following you. And you turned around, finally admitting to him how you felt.

“I love you.” You said and he smiled, stepping closer so he was now right in front of you. Cupping your cheek and smiling.

“I love you too kitten.” He said softly, leaning down to kiss you but you pushed him away.

“No BamBam, I love you. I love my daddy but…I also am madly in love with Kunpimook Bhuwakul.” He looked shocked, he had never heard you say his name before. And each syllable that rolled off your tongue when you said it made him realise that he was feeling mutual.

But you took his silence as him being scared and so you ran past him crying, locking yourself in his room. Not wanting to leave as you cried hard into the pillows, you wanted this to end. It has to end now, it was fucked up.

BamBam didn’t do anything that night, he didn’t try to get you to open up and he didn’t even say anything. But once he heard your crying stop he came in and checked on you, he had his own key to his room. You had fallen asleep in the foetal position, curled around a pillow and clutching it tight.

He felt a sharp pain in his chest at your tear stained cheeks, he hated seeing you cry and he hated himself even more when he was the one who made you cry.

Days passed and you didn’t say anything to BamBam and he hadn’t said anything to you, the tension was thick in the air every time one of you would enter the room while the other was in there.

You missed him, you missed his kisses, his touch, his scent. Everything. Playtime was on hiatus for now until you both worked out what you really want which would require talking to each other. BamBam had left you a note when you got back from the gym saying he’d be at the studio practicing and to not bother making him dinner because he’d eat there.

You felt your heart clench, you wish this would stop. You wanted it to stop but you feel that if you were to sit down and talk you’d end up leaving heartbroken. You showered quickly before heading back downstairs in one of his shirts and some black lace panties.

Sitting yourself on the couch while going through Netflix and figuring out what to watch, you stayed away from any romance or relationship movies so three quarters of your list was gone. Instead searching for a comedy and coming across ‘Scary Movie.’ Which wasn’t so bad.

You clicked play and curled up, eyes glued to the screen and watching the movie. You didn’t hear the door close but you did hear the loud thudding of boots walk down the hallway. BamBam knew you were on the couch and could see the light of the TV.

Had timed passed by that quickly? You glanced at the clock to see it was only 15 minutes into the movie and you thought he’d be there until early hours like usual. You didn’t press it though, instead keeping your lips sealed and hearing his footsteps get heavier and closer as he entered into the living room and sat himself down on the couch next to you.

“I love you, y/n.” You turned your head to see BamBam slightly sweaty, probably from practicing. You were stunned by his words thought.

“I love you my princess and I love you as a person. You’ve been in my life for a whole year and you understand me in ways that others would think is weird or disgusting. I’ve never felt this way about a girl in my life, I’m surprised you’ve stuck around this long and put up with me. I know I’ve been strict and harsh but I don’t know how to show true feelings towards someone I really love—“ You shut him up with smashing your lips against his.

Sliding onto his lap with ease, his hands resting on your ass to push you into him more. You both have been craving one another’s touch these past few days and it’s been killing you both. The lack of touch has made you both sensitive and wanting each even more.

“I love you…y/n.” He said against your lips, your fingers tangling in his hair and pulling harshly at his roots. Just how he likes it.

“Shut up and touch me.” You growled against his lips, grinding your hips down into him.

Things were getting heated fast and you needed him desperately now, you felt like if you didn’t have him you would die. You continued to pry his mouth open with your tongue before exploring when he finally grabbed access.

Your tongue dancing with his own, finding a way to win the small ‘battle of dominance’ you two were having. Something about tonight made you want to just get right into it, pulling away while heavy breaths left your lips.

You pulled his sweats down so they sat just above his knees along with his boxers while pushing your underwear to the side. Tonight you weren’t have sex with Daddy and He wasn’t having sex with Kitten or Princess.

You were having sex with BamBam and He was having sex with you. No pet names, no toys, no rules. Just two people, sharing their bodies to show their love for one another. You couldn’t help the smile that spread across your face before positioning his red angry tip at your entrance.

Sinking down on him slowly, feeling him pulsate against your walls.

“Fuck.” He gripped your hips as you began bouncing up and down. The room being filled with moans and the sound of skin slapping. One of your all time favourite things was riding BamBam, enjoying the way he would roll his head back like he has now.

It gave you the perfect opportunity to mark him, which you had no problem doing. You loved coating his fair skin with your purple flowers. And even though he’d never admit it, BamBam loved it even more. BamBam was now thrusting up into you while meeting your thrusts of your own, your stomach twisting as it searched for your orgasm. Finally finding that spot and pounding hard into it, BamBam knew how much louder you got.

His name and other profanities rolling off your tongue while you threw your head back. Soon tucking it into the crook of his neck while clenching around him and letting your orgasm take over and your legs shaking. BamBam continued to chase his own high, soon finding it and his hips stuttering as he spilled his seed into you. His beautiful white cum coating your walls like art. You say there, his softening member still inside you.

You wanted to just stay like this forever. It was so intimate and it reminded you of your first time together. The first time you two had sex, it was…special.

“Y/n, will you officially be my girlfriend?” He asked and you nodded meeting his lips and smiling into the kiss.  

“I love it when I’m kissing you and I can feel you smiling.”

Zelda: First Draft

With all the scrambling, I got Zelda about 85% complete in time for the Masquerade and Dani’s memorial on Saturday. I still have quite a bit of work to do (I need to make some alterations to the dress, remake the armor, and add the missing embroidery), but it was wearable by the deadline, which was the important thing!

I didn’t really have time to take photos between dressing and the Masquerade, so here’s the one picture I have. Even though Mark dressed as Twilight Princess Link to match me, we didn’t get any photos with the two of us together! Oh, well. Next con.


Hey guys! I’ve been making a lot of jewelry lately and after not selling very many at a local event, I’ve updated my Etsy page with a lot of my product! I’ve still got some things to add but I still need to get decent photos of them. Wet preserved animals will be up within the next week or so once they are done ‘curing’ and are put into their permanent containers!

It would really mean a lot to me if people could spread my etsy a little bit, even one purchase would make me so happy. [psst, all purchases come with some snake stickers… snickers…? yep]

All of my animal products were from roadkill or had died naturally and were given to me. I preserved all the skins myself and did all of the resin work as well.

>>>Link to my Etsy <<<

I also will be updating either my etsy or a page here on my tumblr about custom orders. I also provide bone-cleaning services so please hit me up if you have something you want cleaned! <3

obscenewaveofthemartialspirit  asked:

How do you find all of the resources people ask for? What is your process?

Here’s your song.

Step 1, i copy the name of the book
Step 2, i open google and paste the name of the book and i write “pdf”
Step 3, if google gives me nothing, i try to use new words like “epub” or/and add new words
Step 4, if google still gives me nothing, then i swear a bit in my head and just go on sites with books that i usually use (like Scribd) and where i know i have a chance to find what i’m looking for
Step 5, if i find what i need, i give the link to the person, if i don’t, i just apologize and ask if they need something else

This is my process more or less, in some situations, i need to adjust it. It depends on what i need to look for. (i gave you steps for what i do when i need to find a textbook)

anonymous asked:

Looking for tips from fellow converts on how to remember to pray, in general. I didn't come from a religious upbringing of any sort, so it's super foreign to me to pray at all, and I keep finding myself saying my Modeh Ani way late in the morning, or being part-way through a meal before remembering the berachot. Any tips / tricks for remembering?

Hi anon,

Great question! I’ve personally struggled with the same thing :-/ (adhd is really unhelpful on this one)

Unfortunately, so far the only thing that I’ve found that works for me is building a habit, and the way that I do that is by hyperfocusing on the thing for a sustained period and then adding to my routine, bit by bit.

I started saying modeh ani early on by focusing on the meaning of each part of it. (This post was really meaningful to me.) Then, I added netilat yadayim right after it, and then the morning sh’ma. Over time, I slowly built it up from there and have now built up to davening almost the full shacharit. I still have a ways to go (I need to add mincha and maariv) but it takes a while to add a new thing since each thing has to be incremental.

That’s my habit-forming process, and it’s definitely not foolproof. (I still forget sometimes, and if I get thrown off, it can derail the whole thing.)

I know some people set alarms – some more intense than others. :)

Followers – other [/better] advice?

anonymous asked:

How did you color the b/w painting?

i’m sure there was an easier way of demonstrating this but welp there we go

first you need a painting in greyscale (it’s a fancy way of saying black and white), so i made a somewhat quick young link to complement the other drawing. (note: if you’re gonna make a background i recommend you at least put a solid shade of grey behind the actual drawing)

Mika-chan our birthday boy <3</p>

EDIT May 3: So I finally had time to sit down and add to this post what my mobile phone ate two days ago while publishing this. So, the picture below is an uptated version of the drawing I did for Mika`s birthday 1 year ago <link here>  The boy still needs matthiola.  I see some improvement, that`s refreshing to see my struggles are working somehow :’) What hasn`t changed, I still don`t have a stable access to neither scanner nor computer, so I could at least edit the photo so the colors would look less poor and match the original drawing. Well, now, while typing this, I`m on computer, but that`s two days later and I wanted to post Mika`s birthday art on Mika`s birthday.

Hello! I am looking for themes that have a navigation page, or even a tutorial on how to make one would be okay. I as just wondering if you might have some. :)

That is just a sample. There are 7 pages of navigation page themes right ~here~. Some people have deactivated but the code should still be up on this blog.

If you need a tutorial of how to add links in to a theme, then go ~here~ as I did a guide on how to add more links into a navigation page theme.

Hope that helps.

Are there any other creators I’m missing for this crazy MM Hair spreadsheet? I should make a list for the ones already on it tbh. anyway list of ones I haven’t added yet below the cut. I started linking all the mesh links on the spreadsheet. I’ve found some nice looking hairs while looking around for ones I’ve missed. I still need to hunt down rest of WMS palette recolors. I know I haven’t added in the ones @tranquilitysims & @rachirdsims have done for sure.

Ok I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but lately I’ve been listening to a lot of smaller bands and I want to share with you guys! Please reblog to get these artists out there and feel free to add to the list! And for all these people I’ve linked a music video or some way of listening to them :) So here we go:

Moon Taxi: American indie/progressive rock band. (these guys aren’t that unpopular but still need more credit!!) 

Hiding Out: Pop punk band. They just came out with a new EP ‘Vena Cava’ ya’ll and it is LIT AF !! They don’t have a very big following but really should

The Stolen: Pop rock band. THEY’RE LIKE THE LOVE CHILD OF THE 1975 AND STATE CHAMPS S2G!! They came out with an new EP, ‘I’m So Dead’, check it out!!

Lower than Atlantis: English rock band. I saw Calum listening to them on spotify so I checked it out and I am in love?? Check out their albums on spotify :) also not a new band or totally unheard of but still aren’t that recognised i guess ?

Mainland: I can’t find an actual genre for this band on the internet or their social media accounts but I would say indie/progressive rock (correct me if i’m wrong!). Similar vibes to moon taxi. THEY’RE ON TOUR WITH MELANIE MARTINEZ NOW so hopefully they’ll get some more recognition!

In Stereo: Pop/pop rock band. You guys these boys are 15 !!!!! They’re a 3 piece from Sydney, Australia and they are such sweet boys! Chris and Ethan were on The Voice Kids Australia in 2014, and then they joined with Jakob to form a band to audition with in the X Factor AUS 2015. They just came out with an EP that’s available on Spotify, ‘She’s Rock n Roll’. Go check em out so when they’re big rockstars you’ll be able to say you loved them since they were 15 :)

Owl Kill: Pop Rock band. (again, this is my interpretation as I can’t find the genre they call themselves on their social media). GUYS THIS BAND IS SO UNDERRATED! They have 234 followers on instagram, they need our help to get out there! They have an EP on soundcloud so check it out!

With Confidence: Pop punk band from Sydney, Australia. WARNING: SERIOUS ALL TIME LOW FEELS ?? Seriously guys, this sounds like it’s straight off the Dirty Work album. These guys are currently touring Australia and have a full album coming out in June! 

Against the Current: Pop rock band with female lead. Ok so again, these people have a larger demographic than others on the list but I had to include them because WHY AREN’T THEY ON RADIOS? The song Outsiders is seriously beautiful, pls send help. You’ve probably heard of them, but if you haven’t heard their music then you’re missing out. 

This is all I can think of right now but SERIOUSLY GUYS HELP THESE BANDS OUT!! Reblog this, add to the list, tell your friends!! Let’s get these bands out there where they belong :) 

anonymous asked:

Why are so protective of Tony Stark you feel the need to prioritize him over the successes of a female character or the excitement people have for a black character?

What are you even talking about? I pointed out an error in some published comparative calculation of the opening weekends of Wonder Woman and Iron Man 1. That’s a FACT, not an opinion. With older movies you HAVE to adjust for inflation, and for the fact that there are many more specialty (IMAX, etc.) showings now that add extra income, as well as Thursday showings. And with all that taken into account, IM1′s opening weekend domestic gross still beats Wonder Woman’s, and I posted the link that backs that up. I SAID I loved Wonder Woman; it’s a great movie, and it shouldn’t need incorrect box office analysis to be a great movie. 

And who said anything putting down the “excitement people have for a black character”? What even…? (Honestly, I just shake my head sometimes at what reeaching anons pull out of their patooties.)  Not I, unless you’re referring to my post on T’Challa, which specifically takes on the dorks who do both him and Tony Stark a blatant disservice by comparing them to each other – when in canon they are friends.

T’Challa doesn’t need inaccurate comparisons, and neither does Diana.  They stand proudly on their own.

Motor City: The Compass of Characterization

In a lot of my posts about how previous Fallout games have addressed something about writing or how gameplay and story intersect, I rip on Fallout: New Vegas. And I’m going to do that again, but this time I should specify the problem goes way deeper than just New Vegas, and Fallout 4 only just began to maybe address it a little bit.

Here’s the problem: Fallout: New Vegas, like most games that give you a lot of dialogue options to choose from to define your character, doesn’t really let you define your character consistently without just being a character the game made for you. You get options, but choosing different options doesn’t make a character because it doesn’t make sense. 

Look at Fallout 3 for the most clear-cut example. In that game, the developers went out of their way to make Good and Evil options at most points when you make decisions. You can pick all the Good options, and be a (mostly) consistently defined character. You can pick all the Evil options, and be a (somewhat) consistently defined character. But in either case you just pick the same option every time and don’t make decisions about your character. If you do choose different options at different times, you almost always end up with a character who makes no sense and can’t be viewed as having a coherent personality.

(this is far from the only problem with good/evil morality choices)

Any consistent character with both good and evil choices is almost always going to be “I started out picking one, my personality changed and I saw the light or got jaded, and now I pick the other.” And this gets even worse in the case of New Vegas because the breadth of options at each point doesn’t include consistent paths, so whoever you try to be you won’t always get the option to be them, and there’s a lot of choices you CAN make that you have no reason at all to. Most of the non-Legion evil options are “I’m evil for the lulz” and so only make sense if you are playing exactly that pre-defined character who has no depth. (What is the actual reason a character would have beyond lulz to take the effort to assist the Bright Brotherhood’s rocket launch but sabotage the guidance so they crash? How does the rest of the game let you play that character? Ditto with buying the enslaved family in “Left My Heart” and then detonating the collars – what reason does the game give your character to do this?) You get a lot of decisions to “define” yourself, but with no consistent pattern, it wears down the fiction of “defining your character” and becomes more obviously “pick an option the game wrote for you”, especially when it has your character being proactive.

But New Vegas is far from the only offender. Mass Effect has the Paragon/Renegade alignment system, which was cool and way better than Good/Evil, but still didn’t give much reason to swap between them. Even in cases where you go “this thing makes me so angry I deviate from Paragon to go Renegade and react with ruthlessness”, Renegade is still written to fit in with someone who is Renegade all the time and thus thinks Renegade is the best option for their goals. Star Wars games let you go Light Side or Dark Side but too often trying to go “Grey Jedi” won’t make sense because the Dark Side options are so cartoonishly wicked. I know you’re thinking of some examples on your own.

Some games do have some success in letting you define a character by mixing up your options. Mass Effect pulls it off some of the time. Obsidian’s own Alpha Protocol gives you perfect reason to swap between it’s “three JB” approaches: Jason Bourne, Jack Bauer, James Bond; because you are a spy, you put on a false face, of course in any given situation you can change your approach to the one you think most effective, and you can define who you “really” are by how being under pressure changes your decisions. The thing those examples have in common is consistency, which gives predictability. How you interact with the game’s mechanics to define your characterization is still a system, and game systems must be predictable. I know this face button always means the Aggressive option, so I know to press it at a juncture when my character would be Aggressive, and don’t have to worry about trying to interpret the emotional valence the developer assigned to it. Upper Right always means Paragon, so instead of trying to figure out “which of these options is the one the devs think is the most heroic and uniting,” I just think “Would my character pick the Paragon option here?” It lessens the interpretative burden and in many cases – not all, but many – lowers the “you didn’t put in the option for what I would want to say” factor, as you can know even if your ideal choice is not there that one of these options has the gist of it.

You would think that I’d start praising Fallout 4 here because of its 4 dialogue choices at the 4 directions, perfectly set up for this. But… it didn’t really do that. One of the rare accurate complaints about Fallout 4′s writing is boiling down the dialogue wheel to “Yes   /   No   /   Maybe   /   Sarcastic”. “Sarcastic” is an approach, and indeed some of the best lines in the game are from the Sarcastic prompt, but even then it’s not rigidly defined so you can’t always predict if you’re going to be “snarky” or “a complete and utter dick”. And Yes/No/Maybe aren’t character approaches. Or, at least, aren’t in Fallout 4. 

One thing the game does well to help you define your character is give emotional stakes to the events, and allow you to react to them. The major players in New Vegas are driven by desire for resources, so siding with either is just “what does my character think the best idea is”, but in Fallout 4 they have different ideologies and outlooks so siding with them can reflect your character’s outlook. You can define “how much is my character holding on to the past or acclimating to the new world they are in” and how they respond to searching for and then finding their missing son, and how much of a connection they have. But even though those decision points have emotional context and thus weight, they are small in number, and your ability to define yourself outside of them is limited. 

And the compass-rose dialogue selector isn’t pulling its weight. Another thing people mock Fallout 4 for is screenshots with the True Dialogue Selector up, revealing three or four of your options for your next line are the same sentence slightly rearranged. All the dialogue leading to the same result doesn’t have to be bad or limiting, if instead of slight rephrasing it was an opportunity to define why your character is doing something or their outlook on it! When you meet a settler for a radiant settlement defense quest, what if instead of three almost-identical ways to say “I’m here to help” and start the quest, how about three or four radically different ways to start the quest? “I’m here to help, just calm down and tell me what you need” vs “I heard you had a problem. If I can see some caps, maybe I can solve it for you.” vs “Yeah, I’m here to solve all your problems, because apparently none of you can do a God damn thing for yourselves.” If you’re recording variant lines, why not add some variance? You still accomplish the goal, but now you get to feel like you’re reinforcing who your character is.

So, Motor City. Since I am treating this like a game being made, I can’t act like I will do all the dialogue and make it good, because “just write better” is not a choice. I need to establish a rule that can be followed by others to create a consistent end result in the product.

I said before, in that linked post and elsewhere, the alignment system would not be Good or Evil, it would be Independence vs Interdependence. And it is. But that is not what most of the dialogue is written around – most dialogue choices can’t and shouldn’t be Independence Option vs Interdependence Option. Instead, the guide for dialogue creators is the four different directions are four different emotional reactions to events or proposals. 

Emotional stakes in Motor City are established, because you ARE a Brotherhood Scribe, and the state of Motor City you see is due to the Brotherhood’s action or inaction, and the re-appearing antagonist was your squadmate. So while emotional context isn’t as large in scale as “I found my son and he’s leading the antagonists”, it can be more pervasive, because everything you see can be linked at some level to the Brotherhood’s action or inaction, or reflect on it in some way. So when you see Things Being Fucked Up, that’s more context here than it is in FO4 or New Vegas because you can define if you feel responsible, linked to those responsible, if it makes you turn your back on the Brotherhood, if it makes you more convinced of the Brotherhood’s righteousness because look how people fucked everything up when they pushed it away, etc. But the trick is that you don’t want to define “okay, so Up is the pro-Brotherhood option, Down is the anti-Brotherhood option”, you want a mechanism in which you make smaller choices that can be used to define those characters, and how and why and how they are expressed and other variations. You want to build out of smaller, more versatile pieces. You want to define emotional reactions, and then how the player emotionally reacts to different kinds of things is how they define their character.

Problem is, I am not 100% certain what the emotional reactions should be. There need to be four, they need to be narrow enough that you don’t have a huge unpleasant surprise when you pick one, but broad enough that you don’t often feel there’s a “missing mood”. Options that work when picked consistently (your character is full of this emotion, it colors everything they do) and when mixed and matched (situation A causes you to react with emotion Y, but stimulus B causes you to react with emotion Z, because of who you are).

But right, now what I’m thinking the best four options are for this game and setup:

^ Positive: A Positive response expresses optimism or eagerness and engages most readily. All the options can be and should be interpretable as “Good”, but the Positive response should be leaning in the direction of “goody two-shoes”.

> Guarded: A Guarded response doesn’t commit, sees ambiguity or uncertainty, and withholds final judgment because maybe things are more complex than that. Rather than wishy-washy, Guarded should be “playing cards close to the vest”, “I’m going to keep a cool head and get the whole story,” or “I’m willing to let you impress me, but I didn’t just fall off a turnip truck”. 

V Cynical: A Cynical response is negative and sees negativity in things. You know things are or are going to go wrong and someone is going to have to clean it up. People think all their ideas are unique and great and you know they are wrong but they probably won’t listen. Sarcastic responses go here, along with a more general outlook of “this is beneath me and worthy of mockery” or “this is nothing important or special”. Being despondent or refusing to act should not be lumped in here, because the player should be active, even if they get to complain about it.

< Angry: An Angry response is obviously motivated by anger. Context will have to determine if you are angry at someone speaking to you or angry about the thing they report to you, but either way, what you are reacting to is something that’s wrong and shouldn’t be happening. Anger should be righteous just as or even more often than it is prideful. 

I think that with these options, you have small enough “pieces” that you can build many different characters and have them make sense. And they can fit into most situations and allow you to define different reactions to what happens. But I’m not confident or final about it. I really, really would appreciate feedback and responses, what you think options should be, or questions about them, or situations to ask how they’d fit into, or what you think about the overall thesis of not being able to define a consistent character because switching options doesn’t make sense.

Ah! I'm so sorry! I didn't see that you had replied to it already! But now that I know, well how about a prompt, QuiGon and padawan Anakin trying to get omega ObiWan settled and receptive to help because they all generally see it as option B) someone taking advantage of ObiWan and him blaming himself.

A/N: Needed some good old Obi Wan torture/angst so filled this one. The link to the ask they are referring to (not that it really adds anything) is here: http://goddessofroyalty.tumblr.com/post/159553941356/so-terrible-thought-omega-knight-obiwan-leaving#notes. Oh and I’m saying he got pregnant early enough in the mission that he was definitively pregnant (so like 2 months along?) and this is set a couple of weeks after he got back – so he’s not that far along but still far enough along that he’s been dealing with it for a bit now. Finally will edit and cross-post later (as usual)

Keep reading

Thank you so much for the sub!Tony + pain recs!! I'd read a few but there's definitely some new and wonderful things here and that is. that is very very yes, oh wow. I realized a few days ago that my asks were really badly worded and vague (and then i hoped they had indeed been lost in the void but apparently not lol), sorry, I was going through a weird phase of fandom need + subTony feelings :'D So I really, really appreciate that you still put in the effort of putting together the rec list!!

I’m so glad you found some new ones! Hope you enjoy, and if you discover more in that genre, feel free to send me links so I can add them to the post. Happy to help.
