Désolée si j’ai laissé des erreurs, je viens de le republier au réveil.

Celleux qui dorment au fond, ou qui jouent à Candy Cruche sur leur portable, c’est pas bien, faut se réveiller et faut suivre ;)

So I’ve made a vidme account

This is important please read

I’ve made an account and I will start posting my comic dubs on there. I will still be posting them on YouTube, but you can see them early on Vidme.

Now you may ask “Max, why would you even bother doing this?” Well my friends, YouTube likes to hit me with “limited or no monetization” a lot nowadays. Most of the time I can appeal my videos, but it takes a couple days at most. Therefore, when I upload to YouTube, I have to wait a few days, keeping it unlisted, to make sure it doesn’t get hit or to appeal if it gets hit, and THEN I can post the video. With Vidme, I upload and post it. No hassle, no fuckery.

If you yourself are a YouTuber, I’d recommend trying out this method or something similar, just as a backup, because YouTube just keeps geting worse and worse.

Asriel’s Awakening will be exclusively on YouTube however. It’s too hard for me to string it all together on two sites.

How would Regina him and uma go about calming Harry down if his curse is triggered

Alright so I don’t know a whole lot about the curse, but I think I know enough.

So the crew has strict instructions to not try and grab Harry if the curse gets triggered, cause it will just lead to them geting hurt or worse. So they are supposed to go find Uma and Gil whilst someone watches Harry to make sure he doesn’t injure someone on the crew or himself.

You have to snap Harry out of the curse, grabbing him and pinning him down won’t do to much except angry. And honestly he gets stronger when under the curse. So I like the headcanon that Uma will ask Harry what her name is, it starts to snap him out of the curse because he always responds when she asks.

Now, Harry doesn’t want Regina anywhere near him if the curse gets triggered after what happened last time.

No one had told Regina about the curse, mainly because nothing had triggered Harry in the past few months. But when the two of them were sent to terrorize a few people, something ended up triggering it. Regina tried to stop him, grabbing him and yelling. This lead to Harry (who didn’t recognize Regina because of the curse) lashing out and cutting her neck and arm with his hook.

Harry avoided Regina for a week after that until she snapped and told him that it wasn’t his fault. The fact the cuts scared didn’t help though. But now Harry doesn’t want her around when the curse is triggered. (Not going to go much more into that here cause it would make this post too long lol)

Regina, Uma, and Gil are all there to calm Harry down after he snaps out of the curse though. The four will lock themselves in the captains quarters and just hold Harry, patching any injuries and cleaning up any blood. They’ll listen to Harry’s mumblings and ramblings (as much as it hurts them) and just hold him.

Uma is usually the one to make sure Harry knows that when the curse is triggered, anything that happens isn’t his fault. 

The rest of the day/night is just spent with the three of them holding Harry and playing with his hair. Regina will always softly flirt with him to cheer him up.

The next day, they act like nothing happened, as does the crew. But the three make sure that one of them is touching Harry or near him at all times.

If you or anyone else has any other questions, feel free to ask! 💙💜💙

Why Dean liked Purgatory so much, or On the similarity of Purgatory to Dean’s early hunting life

(Replying to @deanisdarkness​‘s question about Purgatory in a separate post, because this is going to get a little long.)

It would be a grave error to explain Dean’s view on Purgatory only by reducing it to “killing with no consequences”, as halluci!Benny (who is, in fact, just a curse using Dean’s self-contempt against Dean in order to get him to kill himself) does in The Werther Project.

So let’s take a look at what made Purgatory pure, what made it a place that, as Jensen himself has said (x), made Dean feel like he was in his element. A place that made him happy.

Bugs Bunny (Requested - Bobby)

“This is so unfair.” You could only shrug your shoulders at the whining Bobby as he complains about the nickname you had given him. You could only laugh, he surely knew you weren’t meaning any harm. “I thought that I’d only get this from the boys.” He whines again as he slumps down beside you on the sofa, not that his act of sadness was going to make you soften any time sooner. 


It had been weeks since you last saw Bobby so you anticipated this little revenge for a while now, and boy, was Bobby giving you the exact reaction you wanted. If it was anyone else, then the things you said might have harmed them. Carefree Bobby saved you from becoming a real bully.  


“Why so serious, Bugs Bunny?” He huffs a sigh and you notice how tired he must’ve been, any other day and he would have shot back a playful insult as quick as lightning. Just more of a reason for you to carry on, “hit ‘em while they’re weak” was what you were going with right now. “I bought two bags of carrot juice just for your return.” Another chuckle leaves your lips as you turn towards him, that little smirk was getting hard to keep hidden.  


“I saw.” His words came a little colder and it only made the room fill up with more laughter, you were surely ticking him off easily today. He must have been exhausted from all the preparation for the debut, probably not even expecting to find such a cruel girlfriend when he finally gets a day off to see you. “I’m so worn out.”


“Carrot juice might help.” The groan makes you smile wider, he was reacting so easily and as much as you were having fun with his little vulnerable self at this moment, pity was creeping up to you. “Come here Bugs Bunny.”


You hands land on his shoulders, gently making him turn his back towards you. Gently massaging his shoulders, you still hear him whine from your name calling making you laugh at how cruel you could be. His muscles were surely tense and he probably longed for comfort now. It was making you have more pity for your beloved boyfriend when you imagined just how stressful and hardworking he must have been, so tired that he couldn’t even fire back a comeback towards you.  

“How’s the album going Bugs?”

“How long are you going to call me that?” Your laughter fills his ears and your hands gets stronger making him yelp a tad bit when you hit the painful spot. “Babe.” His whines were just comedy to your ears at this moment, funny how he was merely suffering while you were having such an amusement at watching him this way. “It’s nearly done, just a few finishing touches that I’ve thrown all at Hanbin for today.”

“Well isn’t our bunny being a tad bit too cruel to our charismatic leader?” You fake a scold as your hands go to massage his scalp, his headache was probably getting worse as you carried on the tease. His groans and whines were now to many for you to keep count. “Seems like Hanbin needs some relax time more than you Bugs.”

“He’s getting a day off tomorrow.” His reason leaves his lips a bit too quickly and you chuckle once again, obviously amused by his agitation.  

“Bugs Bunny is so mean.”

“Baby.” He finally turns around to face you and you see his pleading eyes telling you to stop, it makes you smile warmly at him. Maybe you should finish the act already, he was surely suffering.  

“Oh, come here Bobby, I was only kidding.” You pull him into a hug and he comfortable shuffles the two of you into a cozy position on the sofa. You both longed for a warm cuddle and the two of you suddenly felt at ease from just the embrace. “Bugs Bunny has really been missed, just saying.” He didn’t have to see your face that was nuzzled in his chest to know that a smirk was growing on your face.  

“Just wait until I’m all better, and we’ll see who’ll be the victim next, you blob fish.” You only laugh at his threat, you will only have to wait and see how he’d pay you back next.
