not saying those first two D+D stories aren't wholly awesome themselves but I absolutely gotta have some more information on the instance where you seduced a dragon

okay fair enough and I don’t got any drawings for you today so story time it is;

alright so we’re like, at the end of this big ole campaign that’s been running a while and we’re facing the Big Cheese who is a sorceress who just went all maleficent on us and transformed herself into a dragon. It’s rad, she’s mad, we all have a good time, but due to some extremely unlucky rolls on our team and some real good rolls on the DM’s side the party is suddenly in a Bad Way; our wizard was dead, the fighter had been trapped in a block of ice, and the bard had just jumped out the window to save himself and landed in a dungheap. Frankly I still think that was an excellent idea and was probably the best move any of us made in that session. 

My rogue, amazingly, was not doing all that hot either and was the only active player left- I had two HP, my arrows couldn’t pierce the dragon’s hide without the bard boosting my attack, she was out of range for a knife attack (throwing it would lose me the only effective weapon I had) and one of my legs was broken. Our DM is all sorts of guilt stricken and hadn’t expected things to go this badly, my companions are coming up with all sorts of get-out-of-jail plots but basically I can’t run, can’t attack, am nearly dead and there’s a dragon sorceress who’s about to eat me. I look at the only stat I rolled insanely well while making the character sheet… which is charisma.

So I ask if I can roll to seduce the sorceress. The DM looks at me like I’m insane, then a genius, then an insane genius, and allows it. Please also note that my rogue is tiny kenku, beaten to within an inch of her life, about to be toasted with hellfire and the sorceress who has been trying to crush our little band for the past year has more will than a stone fortress.

I rolled a 19. 

She rolled a 1.

So, yeah. We got married.

Why Wonder Woman was so Important to Me

I had the opportunity to see Wonder Woman recently, and I was left awestruck.  Wonder Woman is such a timeless character, and I feel this story and the way the film was made really captured the heart of the original character.  With DC’s track record, it had a high chance of being lazy and bad.  But it wasn’t.  It was original. Refreshing. I cried a lot, and here’s why.

1. Women Are Strong 

I’m not one to loudly complain about the misrepresentation of women in media (though we often are).  We’ve had some really awesome and strong female characters over the past couple years.  But somehow, Wonder Woman took this in a completely new direction.  Watching the Amazons fight the invaders on the beach nearly brought me to tears.  It was so special for me to see women take on roles we rarely see them in.  They were the fighters, the protectors, the providers.  There are many women out in the world right now who are fighting their own battles, much like the Amazons.  They’re providing for their families or serving their countries through the military.  It was a pleasant reminder that while men and women have differences, they are equally strong and skilled.

(Also yay for a female director!)

2. Actions Speak Louder

Many times, Wonder Woman is questioned.  She’s scoffed at for being a women (which would have been very common during that time).  She’s underestimated.  But what’s so amazing here is that she never has to prove herself to the men.  It would’ve been so easy for the movie to fall into that common trope.  She never argues with a man and she focuses her attention on others instead of herself.  She wants to kill Ares and stop the war. And in the end, her actions speak louder then her words ever could.  What I took from this is to rise to action.  Stop talking and start doing.  Ignore what others say, because you know what you can do.  Hold your head high and rise above.

3. Mutual Respect Brings the Most Success

As I said before, it would have been easy for the film to fall into certain tropes.  A trope we often see nowadays is a woman proving that she (or all women) are better then men.  That’s never a point of conflict in this film.  Her love interest, Steve, fights as her equal.  He isn’t clumsy or weak to make Wonder Woman look stronger.  He believes in her and helps her to the best of his ability. When they become interested in each other romantically, they both hold their own.  They love each other but are not dependent on one another.  We see the rest of the men in their gang react the same way later on.  They all eventually come to love and respect Diana.  It’s a great reminder that feminism is about collaboration and equality, not one gender being better then the other.  We each have something to bring to the table and our differences are what makes us stronger. 

4. It’s Okay to not be Okay

There’s a really interesting character in Wonder Woman’s gang named Charlie.  He’s supposed to be the world’s top shooter, but time and time again he fails.  He seen some things that have damaged him pretty heavily.  What’s really interesting about this character is that we never see this issue resolved.  He doesn’t have his big “hero moment” where he is suddenly able to shoot and save the day.  This is so much like real life.  We’ve all been hurt, and it’s ok to be damaged.  You have nothing to prove, but your great efforts will help everything to turn out right in the end.  At one point, Charlie even says to Diana “You don’t need me, you’re better of without me.” To this she replies “No, Charlie, if you’re not here, who will sing?” This implies that Charlie is still a valued member of the group, despite his shortcomings.  His friends are able to recognize his other strengths when he cannot.  


5. There is Much Darkness in the World, But Love Will Save the Day

Not much to say here, as Diana said it all in her own monologue:

“I used to want to save the world, to end war and bring peace to mankind. But then I glimpsed the darkness that lives within their light. I learnt that inside every one of them there will always be both. The choice each must make for themselves - something no hero will ever defeat. And now I know… that only love can truly save the world. So now I stay, I fight, and I give - for the world I know can be. This is my mission now, for ever.”

Often times love is portrayed as a great weakness. But it isn’t.  To love is to truly see beauty in the world.  To love is to be brave and strong.  Love is the greatest power of all.  

Additional Notes:

We must learn to forgive.  Diana had the opportunity to kill the chemist responsible for Steve’s death.  And she chose not too, instead focusing on the larger problem at hand and in turn leaving the past in the past.

There were not gratuitous or sexualized shots of the women in the film.  The framing was based around the action.  The women were all beautiful, but the film relied on it’s story and the strength of it’s lead rather then her beauty. 

There will always be hardship. There isn’t always one bad guy to fight.  We all will have to continue to fight our demons and endure through our trials.  But it’s the light and the love, those precious moments, that we fight for.

Thanks Wonder Woman.  You inspired me, and I’m so grateful.  I don’t think I’ve seen a superhero movie with more heart.  There will be many days ahead where I think “What would Wonder Woman do?” 

*I may edit and add on to more of this at a later time, but I wanted to get my initial thoughts out!

I made a real-life Andy’s room.

When my friends and I began recreating Toy Story 3 in late 2011, we knew that we would have to create a full scale Andy’s room. I mean, let’s face it. You can’t successfully recreate Toy Story 3 without a realistic looking Andy’s room. It took about 2 years of work, but it was totally worth it. It’s the room that most of us grew up wishing we had. From the hardwood floor to the bright white woodwork, it’s all there.

It may sound a bit obsessive, but we tried incredibly hard to make sure that every little detail was captured. For example, there is a white board next to Andy’s desk that we, for the most part, replicated perfectly. 

His posters were almost perfectly recreated for our room as well. I’ve got to thank my brother for those. The amount of detail he put into those things amazes me. 

One of my favorite aspects of Andy’s room in Toy Story 3 is his door. I just love the dart board, scattered stickers and posters on it. It really gives off the teenager-vibe. With that said, I absolutely loved recreating it for our room. I still can’t believe we managed to find that dart board…and for only $5 at a thrift shop. Score!

A lot of time was spent on Andy’s desk. Before we renovated it, it was an old, broken brown desk. It was really awesome fixing it up for our remake though because it used to belong to my grandmother. 

Some my other favorite details we captured in our real-life Andy’s room can be seen in this still from the film.

The crescent moon bed backboard:

The electric guitar:

And of course, the toy box:

So yeah, a lot of work went into recreating Andy’s room. But you know what? My friends and I enjoyed every single minute of it. The extra work really paid off. We can’t get over how great it looks on film.

Some of the many people I love :)

Listen, Syfy, you know I think you’re great right? Like, just top shelf, ya know? Quality programming, great shows. The Expanse? Aces. Killjoys? Nothing but good things. But listen, you know this gal?

She and her gang make up one of the best shows I’ve seen in quite some time. It’s got badass ladies and dudes, a crazy compelling story, amazing LGBT representation, A++ relationships and characters, and it’s funny as hell
The cast and crew are fantastic and interact with their fans all the time - they even live tweet every episode along with us! This show is crazy, and fun, and emotional, and you know what I’ll say it, it’s probably one of the best on TV right now.

So hey, buddy, pal, *slings an arm around @syfy‘s shoulder* I’m just saying, when you’re sitting at your conference table, thinking about which shows to renew, keep this one in mind. It really deserves it.


…….and listen, not to put any pressure on you, but if you can put in the time, effort, and money to make this:

I think you can find a way to give Wynonna Earp another 12 episodes.

anonymous asked:

Now that is canon that lance is keith's stability (though that was Shiro), what will happen if something happened to Lance? ~Mist

I wasn’t at the con but I’m pretty sure that Lance being Keith’s stability is a new thing. As in, a thing that specifically started in s3 - because before that Shiro was Keith’s stability!! I mean, Keith literally got kicked out of the Garrison after the failure of the Kerberos mission. When he found out about his Galra heritage it was Shiro he wanted to see, when he departed for the Weblum mission it was Shiro’s hug that cheered him up, when Shiro disappeared after s2 it was his loss that made him put Voltron at risk.

However, all of that changed in s3. And it was a huge difference to before. Because, see, Lance has always balanced Keith out (remember the mission on the Balmera) but he has never tried to be Keith’s support. But once he realized that Keith is under a lot more emotional pressure than he expected, he just-

“Hey man, listen. We all miss Shiro. I remember what a thrill it was just to meet him for the first time when the two of us carried him out of that Garrison hospital.” […] “You’re not the only one hurting, man. We’re all right there with you. But you know that he would be the first one to tell us that we have to move on.” […] “I know you’re right. It’s time to figure out how to reform Voltron.”

“I can’t replace Shiro! You guys were right, I’m the loner. I’m not the leader Shiro thought I was.” “Keith, no one can replace Shiro. But the Black Lion wouldn’t choose anybody it didn’t feel was worthy to lead Voltron. I respect its choice and you should too.” “…but who’s gonna fly the red lion?”

“I’m okay but we can’t fight this guy alone.” “And you won’t have to.”

“Keith, we have to go back for Allura.” “Keith, you are splitting up the team!” “Keith, don’t do this!!” [and Keith actually listens, if only for a moment]

“This is all my fault. I followed him right into this trap. Everyone warned me but I didn’t listen. I put the entire team in jeopardy.” “Yeah, you kinda did. …but now we gotta fix it.” “You’re right. Let’s go.”


The thing about Lance is that he always seems to know what to say to Keith. If you look at his lines, you’ll realize that he keeps emphasizing that Keith isn’t alone. I doubt that Lance has figured out Keith’s abandonment issues but he’s unconsciously helping him through them. That emotional support is important to Keith. Lance finally offers Keith the friendship that he has always wanted and he is very quick to accept it. 

But Lance is more than just emotional support. He also never sugarcoats things, something that Keith undoubtedly appreciates. We know that Keith dislikes his temper a lot, he tries not to rely on it when he can help it (he even gets happy when people offer him an alternative like in the Balmera mission in s1). There’s that and he values honesty - he has never put any kind of effort into learning how to lie and usually takes things the team tells him at face value. That makes Lance telling him that they miss Shiro alongside Keith but they still have their mission to complete exactly the right thing to say. 

So yeah. Lance appeals to both Keith’s emotional and his rational side. And that shows - Keith voluntarily opened up to him in the third episode when he messed up. That’s a huuuge step for Mr. ‘I Guess I Have Some Walls Up’ :P Lance became Keith’s stability and did a great job on it, so great in fact that Shiro/Kuron can’t really take that role back:

When he tried to reassure Keith that he makes a good leader Keith wouldn’t listen. There isn’t a prolonged eye contact that ends with his eyes closing and a deep breath in, there isn’t a hopeful glance upwards, there is no change to how he was before. Shiro left him completely unaffected and it’s disturbing tbh.

So yeah. From what it looks like, Lance will continue being Keith’s stability for a while - at least if he tries. He might feel inadequate or try to give that role back to Shiro/Kuron, just as he was ready to give up his lion(s). I PRAY THAT THAT WON’T HAPPEN BUT VLD LIKES BREAKING OUR HEARTS SO ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ cries

If anything happened to Lance, Keith wouldn’t take it well. I’m not sure if Keith is aware of how important Lance became to him, I’m not even sure if Lance himself is aware of it, but I can’t imagine Keith taking Lance’s loss well. He wouldn’t have taken it well before the bonding and he certainly won’t take it well now. I can imagine that Shiro/Kuron would (as mentioned above) try to take the “stability” role back but I can’t tell how successful he’d be with that. 


[The next in line for Keith’s stability role seems to be Allura btw - wait no hear me out! :’D Voltron’s legs in general are “the stable ones”, the ones that are meant to ground the others. Allura tried cheering Keith up before his first mission in Black and Keith tried to comfort Allura after they got back from the other dimension, so between her and Hunk I think it’d be her!! Hunk didn’t have many moments with Keith in s3.]

Klangst Week: March 29th (Voltron/Garla)

@klangst-week

It’s Klangst week! Why didn’t I know Klangst week is a thing? ;-; 

I’m joining this pretty late (hope that’s okay!) with a small fic, I tried to combine bits and pieces of the previous days to get on track with the remaining week, but it’s mainly focused on the theme of today! ^^



******

He felt it more than he understood it.

There were little signs, small ways he conveyed it to him like waves breaking on rocky shores, disappearing in the blink of an eye.

Lance noticed the way he’d refuse to look him in the eye, the way he’d open his mouth to speak then stop midway, thinking no one had noticed it. He’d gotten harsher, his words fewer and bitter whenever he allowed himself to talk.

He tried to find when it started, understand when they became…this.
When Keith decided he could lie to Lance’s face.
