First dates can be awkward, so here’s some suggestions to try with your very own tiny Pharaoh or teenage CEO sweetheart!
1. Synchronised glaring!
Nothing brings a couple closer than perfectly mirroring each other’s facial expressions. Bring your date somewhere fun, like the aquarium, but instead of going inside, just glare at it together!
2. Make ‘em wait!
Play hard to get by making your date huffily stand outside a phone booth while you call one of your friends – for bonus cheekiness, call a friend who has an obvious crush on you! If you pull this off, your honey will try to get things back on track by making an overt sexual advance to reclaim your attention!!
3. Staring contests!
Spice up your date with a little friendly competition!
Yami’s Top Tip: Resist the urge to stake your life on the outcome!
4. Facing down your mutual enemies!
If glaring at an aquarium is too low-key for you, confront one of your mutual enemies - or at least one of their henchmen! - and pose dramatically together as you stare them down. A lot of couples find this really brings them closer together!
Again, mimicking each other’s expressions and body language is what makes this date activity fun and sexy!
5. A REALLY LOW FLYING HELICOPTER
You won’t be able to hear each other and it’s fantastically dangerous, but hey, a little danger adds a zest for life to your date!
Seto’s Top Tip: Getting too close to a helicopter’s downdraft will make your hair attractively tousled! (Note: this only works if you have human hair and not a particularly ostentatious sea-creature on your head.)
Nothing brings a couple closer together than sharing the trauma of a loved one being abducted! Try to plan your dates to coincide with kidnap opportunities. Plus, if your family and friends have been abducted, there’s no one around to be the awkward third wheel!
7. Duel to the Death
Again, remember it’s probably more fun to play on the same side rather than duel each other to the death. Having to rely on each other’s card game skills in order to avoid plunging to your death is like a trust exercise! Plus it’s a great way to meet other like-minded couples!
Have you tried one of these date activities? Did it summon your Obelisk or were you sent to the Graveyard? Let us know in the comments!
You shoot a few things and make it to The Last City (the first of many laughably uncreative names) only to find that The Traveler (told you so!) – this big moon thing in the sky – is badly hurt, or possibly dead, or whatever. The game assumes, perhaps rightly, that you don’t really give a shit.
The point is, “The Light” (double told you so!) is losing its battle against “The Darkness” (okay, I literally can’t keep this up), and it needs your help. You zip around from planet to planet, doing what are probably things for, surely, reasons – turn on a computer, absorb some crystal stuff, shoot a guy with pokey bits on his head – until you eventually meet a female robot, whose allegiances and origins are tantalizingly mysterious. She hints at a brutal alternate future, a team of time-travelling roughnecks breaking all rules to make things right, and a grand mysterious plot churning throughout the universe. It’s almost too tantalizing, but don’t worry – she is abruptly dropped from the game and never mentioned again.
Yes, Destiny somehow achieves the remarkable feat of being both too convoluted, as well as so oversimplified that it feels like a parent explaining the basic concept of morality to a very stupid toddler. But if you’ve already gone through all of the game’s main story – plus hundreds more equally confounding game hours, then ditched the game itself to invest a few weeks sorting out scraps of lore on the terrible website – you’ll find some pretty solid sci-fi hidden in there. And what’s more, it accomplishes a very tough trick: Tying actual game mechanics into the story in a way that both makes sense in the moment, and contributes to the overall world afterward.
Title: Heartbeat Pairing: Josh Dun/Reader, Tyler Joseph/Reader Rating: Mature Warnings: Public shenanigans, minor daddy kink, shades of fuckboy Tyler, fluffy Josh, all kinds of stuff (and it’s only gonna get worse from here) A/N: The sugar daddy fic has arrived. This is PAINFULLY long (8k words, god help me) This is part one of (probably) four/five parts. I’m super hyped about this, but I’m concerned it’s gonna be shit, lmfao. Anyway, I hope you guys don’t totally hate this.
you've mentioned you can code in your comics, where did you learn? I've always been interested butnever knew where I could go to pick it up. well besides college but I can't afford that :(
I’m primarily self-taught, actually! Although I did go to college, it wasn’t for programming or web development. (Like…at all.)
I started with books you can find in the coding reference section of the bookstore, but that was before there were so many resources online to help. ;) (And those books are expensive!) Of course, knowing what you want to code will help you know which language and where to start. (Not sure? This infographic is super helpful!) I still love having code books around for reference though (I’m a nerd, yes) and there are some recent fantastic ones if you need recommendations.
Stack Overflow (the place to go when you need a pro’s help to debug your work!)
And these are only a few. Like, the first things that come to mind. And don’t forget blogs! There a TON of blog resources out there – SmashingMagazine is definitely my #1, and for web development, you had better be reading it.
Honestly: if I could learn code at 11 with nothing but geocities, a book way about my reading level, a terrible neon-colored website in comic sans, and lots of repeated trial and error…so can you. And there are way more resources available to you now, and only a few clicks away! (Seriously. Google it. GOOGLE IT.) You can pretty much find open-source software for code editors, compilers, version control, and anything else you could need.
You can get started learning today, and you can do it for free. Don’t get me wrong. It does take time and practice. But it’s best to learn by doing – so just start doing!
An idea I had to get out of my head, and my shitty attempt at a lightning effect. Unfortunately, I don’t have the stuff to make my own proper gif so I have to use websites with terrible quality. But it gets the idea across, and I added the spooky frame there fo fun…
Totally not inpired by @drjonathancranemd‘s last audio post with the thunder in the background…
So I’m like… really sick of social justice bloggers/activists in general caring more about semantics than ACTUALLY caring about social justice?? Like. If that hitler kin asshole just came out and was like “I’m a nazi” no sj bloggers would be defending them but because they said “I’m ~kin~ with hitler as a ~coping mechanism~” there have been people defending them??? Like damn. Same with goyische bloggers who make nazi punching edits and talk about how much they hate nazis but NEVER include Jews or rroma people in their activism I just. Ugh. This is a terrible website.
A/N: I’m running out of IDEAS HERE, feel free to send me some requests or something, HMU… Anywhoo, this isn’t my best work, i personally am very iffy about it but eh, i might as well post it. Very sorry for any mistakes, Hope you enjoy!
Writing Prompt: “We both came here to buy the same movie but there is only one dvd left, let’s split the cost and watch it together i have popcorn at home”
Summary: You go to the store to get your favourite movie, however when you get there you see the one and only Jason Todd holding the last copy.
Relationships: Jason Todd x Reader
Word Count: 497
You and your friends always had movie night on Saturdays, usually having it end up with multiple bowls of popcorn and cans of beer scattered on the floor. However today, when you called your friends to plan which movies you’ll watch today, you found out one of them had extreme food poisoning and the others were on vacation.
With that, you were at the store alone on a search for the last copy of a certain movie you’d needed to watch. The Breakfast Club was one of many classics that made it to your top 10 favourite movies, you first watched it when you were ten years old and it was one you’d find yourself watching on a weekend when you had a terrible hangover. When you went to the store website, you saw they had one copy left and it was a must need to your collection of movies.
As you raced around the corner to the large movie section, your heart nearly shattered when you saw the one and only Jason Todd holding the dvd carelessly in his hand as he scanned through the many other movies there.
You met Jason a while back when you first went to the Wayne household, your parents being close friends with Bruce Wayne. You and Tim seemed to click and get along the most, Dick was almost like a big brother to you and too sweet, you didn’t talk to Damian all that much as he only seemed to glare at you when you tried to start up a conversation. When you talked to Jason it was simple small talk, he had an obvious vibe of, “I have no reason to be here and I have better shit to do”
With a whole lot of confidence, you marched right up to the older man with a slight glare, “Well if it isn’t the one and only Jason Todd,” you spoke up, your eyes shifting from the movie in his hand to his face.
He turned to look at you and couldn’t help but smile, “Y/N! I haven’t seen you in a while, how’s your little relationship with Tim? Hmm?”
“There’s no relationship with Tim, we are just very good friends… Uh, now Jason because you have a masterpiece in your hands, I’m just gonna take it from ya,” You eye the Dvd as if it were prey, quickly removing it from his hands at a quick speed, turning to take off for the cash register. Being stopped by his hand firmly grabbing your arm and jerking you back to face him.
“Or, we can split the cost and watch it together? I’ve got popcorn back at my apartment..” You had to think about it for a moment, seeing his shit-eatng smirk plastered on his lips.
“Only if I get to keep the movie, then we’ve got a deal,” Jason only shrugged at that, releasing your arm from his tight grasp.
