Okay, I have a VERY important question! Where did the drawing of Jack and Wiishu as characters from Night in The Woods come from? It's adorable and I must know! Also, hope you have/had a good day! 💛

From heeeeeere. (My other blog.) X3 Aw, thanks! I’m super into Night in the Woods, and I don’t know how to like things casually, so I needed to make something!

Which, now that I think of it, is pretty much how this blog came into being, haha.

Thank you, friend! I hope that you’re having a good day, too. :3

About Omegaverse

ALPHAS

·Alphas are the dominant or “masculine” ones in omegaverse

·They are generally large and at least slightly intimidating in appearance

·They possess what is commonly referred to as an “Alpha Voice” which is basically a very commanding tone that Omegas, and sometimes Betas, feel compelled to obey

·Alphas also have a “Croon” which is like a deep rumbling sound (basically a purr) that helps to calm or comfort their Omega or their pups

·"Ruts" are a biological thing that Alphas go through and during a rut they will be easily agitated and extremely horny because their body wants them to knot and breed

·A “Knot” is kind of like a bulb type thing in an Alpha’s penis that swells when they are aroused and keeps them locked inside their Omega during sex to increase chances of getting the Omega pregnant, this is called “Knotting”

·All Alphas are able to impregnate people, but only a female Alpha can get pregnant because male Alphas don’t have a womb

·Female Alphas are often described as having both a penis and a vagina or having a clitoris that extends into one when they are aroused so they can impregnate people

OMEGAS

·Omegas are the submissive or “feminine” ones of the dynamics

·They are generally small, maybe delicate, and feminine in appearance

·Omegas can use their pheromones to effect others, whether it be by calming their child or arousing their Alpha

·"Heats" are a biological thing that Omegas go through and during a heat an Omega will self lubricate (usually referred to as “Slick”) in order to prepare to take an Alphas knot

·Omegas are most fertile during heats and they crave an Alpha’s knot because their body is demanding for them to breed

·When an Omega is in heat is usually the best time for an Alpha to “Bond” with them

·"Bonding" is achieved by biting into a scent gland hard enough to draw blood and eventually scar, it ties two people together mentally, physically, and emotionally. Like, a really extreme marriage

·During heats, pregnancies or any other stressful times, an Omega will “Nest”

·"Nesting" is a process in which an Omega craves warmth and comfort so they will choose a small space, like a closet, and gather blankets, pillows, clothing, anything soft really and especially anything with their Alpha’s scent on it and build a nest to cuddle up in

·"Scenting" is the process of someone spreading their own unique scent onto things or people in an act of comfort or possession

·People in omegaverse usually have four “Scent Glands” two on the neck and one on each wrist. When the glands are stimulated their scent becomes more potent and sticks to whatever or whoever is closest

·Both male and female Omegas can get pregnant and while it is possible for a male Omega to get a female Omega pregnant, a female Omega can’t impregnate anyone

·"Mpreg" male pregnancy, the only males that can pregnant in omegaverse though are Omegas

BETAS

·Betas are basically like normal humans, in omegaverse they are below Alphas but still above Omegas

·Betas can have any kind of appearance, there isn’t really a set expectation for them

·They don’t go through ruts or heats but they can still bond

·They tend to mate with other Betas

·Betas usually have a better sense of smell than the other dynamics

·Like normal humans, male Betas cannot get pregnant and female Betas cannot impregnate anyone

“I used to tell Walter, ‘Never start a fight… but always finish it.’ I didn’t start this fight… but by God, I’m going to finish it.”

“Its fine that Steven forgave his bigoted uncle! Jasper, Bismuth and Eyeball all tried to murder him.”

First things first, they tried to kill ROSE. Not Steven.

And are we forgetting that Lapis tried to drown him? That Peridot tried to kill him with death lasers and came very close to crushing Pearl and Garnet?

“But….but….but there’s a good reason that. We can explain why Lapis/Peridot did those things.”

Yeah….you can do that with Jasper, Bismuth and Eyeball too. I know you people wanna pretend that those three are just plain evil. Which tells me that you have no fucking clue what message this show is trying to convey.

Jasper behaved the way she did for a reason. You’ve chosen to ignore it.

Bismuth behaved the way she did for a reason. You’ve chosen to ignore it.

Eyeball behaved the way she did for a reason. You’ve chosen to ignore it.

And don’t you dare try to fucking tell me that Steven tried to help them.

Because he didn’t.

He spent the entire episode trying to convince Eyeball that he was Rose. How’s that helping? If anything, its a dumbass move since Eyeball tells him that she wanted closure just like Jasper. Which should have told him all he needed to know given the recent events with Jasper. Sure, he healed her gem. But that was out of necessity. Not because of some bigger reason.

As for Jasper, Steven only “tried to help” when Jasper was already being corrupted. Before that, he had dismissed her as being terrible. Without even caring to see things from her perspective. And don’t give me the “Stevonnie asked her to apologize” excuse. Because while that may say something for future episodes, it meant nothing in the context of the episode in which it was said. You can’t demand an apology from someone who doesn’t think they’re in the wrong. Not to mention, demanding an apology isn’t always “helping”

As for Bismuth….frankly SHE helped him more than he helped her. He spent most of the episode being uncomfortable with the “old ways” of the Crystal Gems and then his pleading with her at the end was nothing more than him trying to talk his attacker down. I guess he did her a favor by telling her that he would tell the others…..But helping?

Frankly, the fandom (and the show) give Steven way too much credit when it comes to these three characters. And when you don’t have your head up your ass, you will notice the disconnect between those three and other people that Steven encounters.

“John Frusciante from the Chili Peppers stopped by my house. We ended up talking for hours about many things and then we went to his house and listened to a ton of cool music. He is a very special person with a deep passion for music, the guitar and life. Although I did not get any work done today, after I left his house I felt as though I really needed the experience to balance myself out a bit after being buried in the studio for so long. It’s so rare that I get to just hang out with interesting people who I resonate both musically, personally and spiritually with. I discovered a gold mine in John. (Steve Vai, February 20, 2007) 

I know that SuperCorp is very unlikely to happen because Sanvers is already a thing, but between us… that’s bullshit.

Tv shows should always aim to reach out for the audience, capturing their interest - on a side trying to represent them and on the other trying to surprising them. We’re getting a hint of representation of the LGBT community (and I’m not saying LGBTQA+, because that part of the community is practically nonexistent according to the media) right now, which is definitely not enough, and what we get is rarely a quality product (for the most part, we’re used to make jokes, which isn’t representation, but more likely cheap comedy). We frequently get little screen-time, poor character development (he’s gay, what else is there to say?) and yes, we often get to DIE too (for the benefit of famous “shock value”… which doesn’t shock anybody, really, since it happens almost all the time). What we don’t get is main roles, good backstories, characters who are not only defined by their sexual orientation and… well, to live, to grow and get to be happy on screen (what an absurd concept, am I right?).

Supergirl has done an incredible job by representing Alex Danvers’ coming out story: it showed its audience how a strong, brave woman like Alex can still be very fragile and struggle with this kind of realization; how she fears to accept herself, to be fully herself and out with the people she cares the most about, and more importantly how things can actually go well. This is damn important, ‘cause it helps a lot of people to think that “Hey, maybe my family won’t take it this badly” or “Maybe my friends will accept me” and “Maybe things will change for the better!”, ‘cause guess what? IT CAN HAPPEN AND IT HAPPENS! But this is not very interesting to show, apparently, ‘cause most of the time it’s all freaking dramatic and it ends in tragedy.

The new generations are already lucky, ‘cause now there is something like this (Supergirl) on Tv, but it’s not enough still, ‘cause they’re portraying a tiny fragment of their audience, of the people around the world, and if you think “But it’s a lot already”, I’m gonna tell you that the straights have every single damn shade from every single damn angle for their representation on screen, while we are barely there and almost never the main character or anything close to that. Yes, there are movies in which we are protagonists, but let’s be real, they’re almost always centered on our sexual orientation, the discovery and the consequences, which is helpful and good to see, but it’s not everything there’s to see and to know. Plus, they really abuse of the dramatic factor of it in order to “send a message”, but that’s a message wasted on the straights, and if they think you’re an abomination already, surely a movie won’t change their minds. Instead, it will just fuel fear in us, which - there’s no really need to say it - it’s bad (we unfortunately have reality for that).

I remember my probably very first approach to the whole “girls liking girls” thing thanks to the media.
I was a kid and I was watching this movie on the Tv. I remember only pieces of it, ‘cause I don’t think I was paying much attention until a certain point. What I still recall, though, stuck in my head for a reason.
There were two girls, one white and the other brown, that grew closer to each other (I seriously don’t remember anything about whatever was the rest of the story). I recall this very specific scene that had me and my sister (who was also watching) like: “Oh, they are helping each other undressing ‘cause they’re friends”. When they started making out we were like “Oh… Okay, so they’re not just friends, apparently”, and that was it. I don’t think we knew about all the hatred towards people of same sex being in love with each other, to us it was just like “Okay, this is a thing that exists: acknowledged”. They seemed to be fine, so there was no issue… right? WRONG!
The white girl’s brother saw them, got angry as shit, took a gun and started shooting at them. They got into a car, trying to get away from him, but he got into another and started chasing them. It was raining, they were scared as shit, he looked insane, I felt the anguish growing inside of me: it was awful (again, I was a kid at the time).
The car slipped, then fell down a bridge into a river/lake and it quickly sank. After a while, only the white girl emerged from the water. The other drowned.
Last scene that I remember was a time jump where the white girl was a now a white granny, and she was probably remembering this terrible thing that happened to her once.

No fucking wonder if growing up I didn’t want to be gay and I pushed down my feelings and thoughts, since this is the kind of message to which I was subjected. And now? Now there are some things that portray the whole “being gay” as normal (as it always should be) and not in a dramatic, catastrophic way, but it’s also true that we get shows like The 1OO, Person of Interest, Orange Is The New Black, Pretty Little Liars, The Walking Dead and many, many, many others where the lesbian freaking dies, where there is no happy ending for us.

It’s simply not okay.

But to finally address the very main reason why I started this post - that no one will read ‘cause it’s too long, and people have time only for thoughts as long as a tweet - is the importance to acknowledge the presence of MORE THAN ONE GAY CHARACTER in a story. In a story AND in a family. Yes, as crazy as it sounds, we are more than two and we indeed can have LGBTQA+ wonderful siblings. Madness, right? Except that it’s not, it’s our reality, which is way more colorful, interesting and beautiful than the arid one-sided representation we witness on daily basis (I’m talking about heteronormative).

So, what really drives me nuts, it’s not the fact that people seem to be scared shitless to insert us in anything (although we’re everywhere), but how little crafty they are. We have proven to be a real force of nature over the whole LGBT Fans Deserve Better initiative, which raised by far $166,547 for the Trevor Project, and we did that after being smacked down once again by showrunners. Can you imagine what we could do if people were fair to us, for a change? We’re loyal, passionate, absurdly creative and talented (have you ever seen our fanArts, read our fanfictions? They’re often better than the original stuff and we don’t get paid a coin for making them), and yet we hardly get anything.

Tv shows should listen to their audience and get smart, because it’s not a pink UFO the thing we’re asking for, it’s not something that won’t fit their story, but simply more good representation. Supergirl scored with Sanvers, but there’s still so much potential that is sadly going to waste, and if they opened their eyes they would see it.

Do you want a great, original idea? Be fair and listen.

Alright motherfuckers, in light of the bad shit Marvel did to Captain America, it’s time to talk about our lord and savior, Angela: Asgard’s Assassin/Angela: Queen of Hel

right, so if you read Guardians of the Galaxy or Thor, you probably know who Angela is. If not, she’s a badass angel-except-not-really-angel who’s bffs with Gamora/half sister of Thor, and is the queen of murdering things with style

now, onto the good stuff

I picked up the comics because they looked interesting, and was blown away by what i read. The story is riveting, beautiful, heartbreaking, and fun as Hel.

right, so basically its Angela and her girlfriend Sera going on crazy journeys to defeat evil and shit, and they’re great.

and when I say girlfriends, I mean canon lesbians

and not only that, but Sera is canonically a trans woman of color!

they are the power couple of the century tbh

and i mean, just look at this fucking artwork:

it’s funny as hell too:

but don’t get me wrong, it’s a fairly dark and really intense read at times, and well written to boot:

and then I’ve been told (I’m not quite there yet) the last two issues of Queen of Hel are literally the two of them getting an apartment with their adopted daughter and doing cute gay shit together:

and they’re short series too, 6 issues in one, 7 in the other, so its not even a huge commitment to read!

anyway, this has been a PSA, GO READ ANGELA!

Katerina v Katherine

     Something that consistently bothers me about the interpretation people (and characters in the show) have about Katherine is that ‘Katerina’, her human self, was somehow pure, good, and innocent and turning into a vampire changed her. I understand why people/characters would see it that way, because we see her much more sympathetically as a human than as a vampire.

     My qualm with this is that human Katerina did some very morally dubious things. Evidence suggests she was raised in a religious household, and that the father of her child was someone she cared about. While in modernity we don’t see having sex outside of marriage as something bad, she would have been raised to believe it was morally wrong. And she did it anyway. 

      When she runs from Klaus, she makes up a wicked smart plan to manipulate Trevor’s affection for her, get Rose to give her blood, and turn herself into a vampire. She does not count on Klaus being vengeful. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like strikingly familiar behavior we have come to expect from vampire Katherine.

       She immediately kills a stranger, the old woman who lives with Rose, to complete the transformation. She does this without hesitation, without blinking. “Better you die than I” is her mindset from the very beginning. She plans to do this as a human.

       I think a lot of people make the link that human, S1 Elena is what Katherine as a human was probably like. I just disagree. They were raised differently, their core personalities are different, and they are introduced to vampirism in exceedingly different circumstances.

       It’s easy to idealize the characters as humans as being innocent, which the show does encourage, and certainly they are more innocent when they are younger. But vampirism enhances your personality traits. It doesn’t upend them and give you newer, more evil ones. 

      TL;DR: Human Katerina was not pure and good angel. She was manipulative, methodical, intelligent, self-indulgent, and prioritized her self-interest.

it got brought up and has been mentioned in threads/responses lots of times, but. i figure i should reiterate and explain: jason is extremely averse to people trying to a) parent him or b) force him into talking about his issues.

it’s exactly 5% pride, 20% confusion, and 75% fear. 

in regards to a: he’s gone his entire life without a stable mentor figure, never mind an actual parent, and any attempt at someone trying to fill that role is gonna be met with various levels of “it’s too little too late, i don’t need this/someone else needs it more”. generally, people do not look at jason and think “time to adopt”, so he’s good on that score, but the few times someone has tried — it’s not gone well. jason clams up, tries even harder to prove he can look after himself. some folks are persistent and he does grudgingly respect them as elders/higher ups, but that’s as far as it goes, tbh. ( i.e. chiron, lupa, coach, mellie etc )

as for b: there’s a lot of issues in him talking his problems out. it’s mostly just paranoia. things like… jason thinking people won’t accept his help anymore if they knew what a mess he is, ppl losing respect for him as a leader/friend, the fact he has far too much bottled up to unload it on anyone NOW, oh god — UNLOADING PROBLEMS ON PPL FAR MORE TROUBLED THAN HE IS bc he HATES making ppl feel bad/worse, feeling helpless about not being able to deal w/ his own shit, constantly comparing his problems w/ other ppls and chucking it all under a rock bc it’s not that bad in comparison etc etc

he’s been replaced numerous times, most notably by ppl in new rome who seemed to just turn on him once he stopped being useful — in BoO, during the ithaca chapter, he gets called out for his dislike/fear of being replaced and lost. jason’s mindset is, canonically, if you’re not useful, nobody will want you. the 2 times he’s openly talked abt his shit has been w/ hazel and piper, and that’s…………….it………….. after that, he never brings it up again and never lets them fret over him again. he likes to be self reliant, and to help others. parenting him or forcing him to talk takes that away, and he reacts Not Well

I’m not sure who here on Tumblr has been following my story but a little over a year ago I was in California with a good paying government job, unhappy and slowly drowning in debt. My wife and I saw an opportunity and made the move to Oregon. Things havent gone exactly as we thought they might but we’ve been extremely blessed and were very happy here. I work in Hardware now making about a third of what I did in CA but its a low stress job and I’ve found I actually enjoy it a lot. I’ve slimmed down now that I’m not spending 10 hours a day at a desk, I get to work with plants and farm supply stuff, and best of all even though I’m making much less we were able to buy a home out here! We’ve also started a small side business making enamel pins and patches and have been amazed at the interest and support we’ve received. One of the awesome things I got to do at my job was to attend an awesome product knowledge thing where I scored all that awesome gardening loot in the first picture for freeeeeee. To supplement all that awesome free stuff we ordered some seeds from Baker Creek and were ready to officially start the garden this weekend. Also our backyard is starting to wake up after what seemed like a long and especially cold winter.

SO ATLANTA! this con got a little screwy on technicalities, such as rooming flipped and switched every night, and the vendor room being the absolute definition of purgatory, but despite it all some really cool things did happen! starting with the comic, which actually happened last:

  • i got some r2 ops with friends!! AND MY VERY FIRST WITH @neven-ebrez!!! but i was also super excited because i got to hear rich actually talk about god’n’gabe, and i was gonna thank him for the compliments! BUT! ROB! WOULDN’T! LET ME! TALK TO HIM! and you GOTTA move during ops, even if they’re the last of the con, and even though i had multiple I COULDN’T GET A WORD OUT TO HIM WHEN WILL I EVER BE ABLE TO TALK TO RICHARD SPEIGHT
  • which, speaking of, i still can’t believe they went on for so long about god’n’gabe/the spn art community during the r2m panel, and then at the KoC panel rich said “gabriel took loki’s vessel–i wanna know what he did to convince all of the pagan gods that’s who he was for all those years” WHICH HE’S NEVER SAID…MEANING…I ACCIDENTALLY PLANTED SOMETHING IN HIS HEAD
  • i was coerced into speaking to megan padalecki who i’ve been so scared of bothering at every con, but the vendor room was so dead at this con i got in a good talk! i may or may not have told her that to me she was “someone who i felt got into a bar fight and won”. she is so cute and sweet and she does all of her art traditionally and i love it and her
  • schmelke made me hydrate because i took too long to answer last time i had done so
  • @truebluecas AND I DID A JUMP OP ON THE FIRST TRY AFTER THIS, OUR 6TH ATTEMPT
  • right when i got in, i met with a bunch of friends, AND ALSO ACCIDENTALLY kim rhodes, and we got to discuss the woes of crappy airlines:

i’m pretty sure i might have been adopted in those couple of minutes but i’m gonna let it happen

THERE WERE A LOT OF YOU WHO WERE SHY/ANXIOUS AND FOUGHT IT AND WERE BRAVE AND TALKED TO ME AND I AM SO PROUD OF YOU! everyone was BEYOND lovely, and my neck and back were killing me, and i was gifted with some neck/shoulder rubs. which i am INSANELY grateful for, because i’m back and now my muscles are back to normal!! THANK YOU ATLANTA!

Good Intentions

Summary: Seven, Zen and Yoosung decided to hang out over at Jumin’s place (Jumin did not sign up for this) when the three get into a messy wrestle fight. Unfortunately, Seven and Zen team up on poor Yoosung and decide to take things to the next level as soon as they pin him down: tickle the absolute hell out of him. 

Author’s note: Was finally able to finish this asdfjkasdf I finished Yoosung’s route a long time ago, totally fell in love with this adorable cutie and here I am, pulling this fic out of the trashcan. I think anyone with an older sibling, or worse siblings, has gone through this at least once in their life. I salute thee, I’ve been there 8]]] 
PS: Help I’m almost at 200 followers I’m nooo t o ka y don’t look at me fasdi jas


‘Twas one of those rare nights where all the members of the RFA had found a gap in their busy schedule to hang out and catch up face-to-face instead of chatting all the time. Jumin hadn’t really agreed to this, though, but that didn’t stop them from barging into his apartment and making themselves at home. Seven had quite literally forced the paperwork out of Jumin’s hands and pushed him onto one of his expensive couches.

Even after convincing him that one night off wouldn’t hurt, Jumin wouldn’t leave his phone alone, texting Jaehee and calling his colleagues every five minutes to make sure they did exactly as they were told. Zen even threatened to take his phone to which Jumin snarled in response and got up from the couch to finish his latest business call in the kitchen.

Right now they were watching a random drama Yoosung had found while flicking through channels and Seven got out some of the snacks he had brought along.

“’Cause I was sure Jumin didn’t have any,” he said and sent a mocking glare towards the kitchen door, fishing out some chips and popcorn and laying the bags on the glass table in front of them. “If you make a mess it’s your funeral, though.”

“The guy says he eats super healthy but maybe he has something like a guilty pleasure,” Zen mused after he had taken a seat right next to Yoosung who was already stuffing his face and moving towards the edge of the couch to be closer to the food. “Offer him some of those chocolate thingies. I’m pretty sure he’ll like those.”

Ooh, maybe I will. Let’s see if we can get him to admit he’s not a perfect human being after alls.”

Yoosung vaguely registered their words as he held the bag of potato chips, listening intently to every word of the actors on screen. His hand worked like a robot: scooping up a large amount of popcorn and practically throwing it into his mouth, barely giving himself time to chew before he’d throw in the next handful.

The other two didn’t seem to mind as much, probably because Seven had bought a lot of food and there was practically enough for the four of them to last for a week. Zen was leaning against the back of the couch, one arm lazily draped over the edge while Seven was busy playing a game on his phone but also trying to keep up a conversation with Zen about the series they were watching.

At last, Jumin came back from the kitchen and stopped dead in his tracks when he saw them. “Oi! Stop eating on my couch!”

“We’re keepin’ it clean, so stop worrying,” Seven spoke up without even looking up from his phone. “Yoosung here, on the other hand…”

“Haven’t dropped a single thing!” Yoosung quickly said and held up his hands in defense. “You know I’m not a messy eater!”

“Right, you’re a messy cook,” Zen smirked and got a good punch in the arm for that remark. “Hey, hey! I have a photoshoot tomorrow! Be careful with my beautiful shoulder, will you?”

“Yoosung’s that one friend with anger issues, Zen, how could you forget?”

The three of them got into a rather messy wrestle fight, which Jumin definitely did not appreciate. Zen, thanks to his strict work-out routine, easily got the upper hand and worked together with Seven to help pin Yoosung’s wrists down, but Yoosung was having none of that and kicked out as much as he could. Jumin was yelling at them to “fucking quit it because I will call the police,” but the three easily ignored him, too busy trying not to lose.

It only took a few seconds before they rolled off the couch, almost knocking over the table, and Yoosung cried out in frustration as Zen finally managed to pin his wrists down on either side of his head while straddling his waist. Small bits of candy and chips were thrown into the air as Yoosung whined and flopped around like a fish on dry land and Seven barked out a laugh because Jumin looked so very offended and so done.

“You two always team up on me,” Yoosung huffed and screeched again when Seven gladly took a seat on his lower legs to keep them from kicking. “Oof, Seven, you’re heavy! Get off!”

“Nah, I’m quite comfortable. And hey, you didn’t say Zen’s heavy!”

“That’s because I’m not.”

“Muscles are heavier than fat, you idiot. I think you’re heavier.”

“Didn’t hear little Yoosung here complaining, though.”

“Guys!” Yoosung called out and tried moving his legs but Seven’s full body weight was enough to completely immobilize them. “Can you at least get off me if you’re gonna have some random pointless discussion?”

This was not very uncommon and even though Yoosung still had a lot of fight left in him, he knew he wasn’t going anywhere soon. This usually lasted until he’d get tired of struggling or give in and say whatever they wanted to hear from him and it was so frustrating because they always combined forces and it wasn’t fair.

It appeared they had stopped paying attention to Yoosung for the time being because Zen was very offended that Seven was practically insulting his beauty and grace while Jumin was still trying to get them out of his house by threatening to leave the RFA, which didn’t work, either. Neither Seven nor Zen seemed impressed by his words and calmly continued to debate and Yoosung laid his head on the floor, blowing his bangs out of his face.  

“Will you three stop acting like you’re five years old and go home already? I’m sure Yoosung still has a lot of homework to do anyway.”

“Was actually planning on playing LOLOL tonight but if these two oafs won’t get-off-of-me-right-now,” Yoosung puffed out, trying to lift up his hands and bending his knees again, but Zen casually pushed his wrists a little harder into the floor while Seven shifted a little to divide his weight more. “I won’t be able to.”

“You should do your homework, though,” Seven said and tapped Yoosung’s thighs. “If you promise you’re gonna do homework and do some reviewing, Zen and I’ll let you go.”

Ugh, no. They released a new weapon this morning and I haven’t had the chance to gain enough experience to buy it yet!” Yoosung started struggling again because now he really wanted to go back home to play. “It’s one of the strongest weapons yet so homework can wait!”  

“No, it can’t,” Jumin sighed, forever annoyed.

“Can’t believe I’m saying this, but I agree with our nerd here,” Seven added and nudged Zen with his elbow. “Yoosung needs a little encouragement, Zen.”

Uh-oh. Yoosung’s eyes widened at those words and he started jerking around once again when he felt Seven’s hands on his thighs and Zen calmly lifting his arms so he could wrap one hand around both of his skinny wrists. The only thing he could do was dig his heels into the floor and beg and plead before the attack would come, but his pleas fell on deaf ears.  

His arms were now pinned above his head, his thin shirt ridden up enough to bare his taut stomach and Yoosung knew his fate was sealed as soon as Zen smirked down at him, wiggling his fingers right above his trembling skin.

“Ready?”

none of these show off arin’s butt to its full potential but trust me, he was wearing jeans and there was a butt and it was fucking glorious. like, my love for dan knows no bounds, but I couldn’t take my freaking eyes off arin he looked so goddamn good.

ross and vernon were delights, dan and arin were hilarious, they sang/rapped along to hero of rhyme after the show was over, and all in all it was a great time.

plus arin did the “hello *looks at smudged writing on hand* [mispronounced chicago]” thing, which was precious.

A Good and Lovely Intention

Snape: Miss Lovegood, what are you doing outside of my office?

Luna: I am hanging butterbeer corks on your door, sir.

Snape: *resists urge to pull out hair* …Why?

Luna: I’ve been sensing some very bad vibes around the castle lately, sir. Bad. I think something terrible is going to happen soon, and I think I may know why. Tell me, sir, have you been noticing things missing from your office or classroom recently?

Snape: I – what? How did you know that?  

Luna: Hmm, yes, I thought so. I felt their aura very powerfully, here. I’ve been sensing them in the dungeons, off the Serpentine Corridor on the third floor by the Defense Against the Dark Arts Classroom, and, oddly enough, in the seventh floor corridor, across from the tapestry by Barnabas the Barmy, though I’ve no idea why. There’s nothing there to steal…

Snape: *genuinely intrigued, despite better judgement* What are you talking about, Miss Lovegood? Do you… Do you have any solid, pertinent information about the strange happenings at Hogwarts this year…? *looks over shoulder, lowers voice* …Do you know something, Miss Lovegood?

Luna: *nods deeply*

Snape: *is honestly expectant*

Luna: *lowers voice as well* ….Nargles.

Snape: What?

Luna: Nargles, sir. They’re tricksters. Invisible creatures that steal things and pull pranks for fun. They often take my shoes and other things. But I’ve never seen them this bad before. Usually it’s just clothes or homework. But they’ve just been insatiable this year! So I am placing butter beer corks everywhere I’ve sensed a heavy infestation. Like your office.

Snape: ……Miss Lovegood, take your…butter beer corks and go back to your common room.

Luna: But the nargles—

Snape: Nargles are not real, Miss Lovegood.

Luna: ……Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they’re not real. But okay, sir. *takes down butter beer corks* *sighs* Their auras really are getting out of control, sir. I don’t think that even stealing from teachers is going to satisfy them, soon.

Snape: ……

Luna: Bad vibes, sir. Bad vibes. I think they might start stealing…lives.

*stares unblinkingly with giant eyes, butter beer corks dangling uselessly in her limp hand*

Snape: *feels irrationally and entirely too disturbed*

Luna: ……

Snape: ……

Luna: *sudden smile* Well, I’m off to the seventh floor, then. Have a good evening, sir.

*wanders away in wrong direction*

Snape: *considers drinking more butter beer and holding on to the corks*

I think the key to enjoying Automata to its fullest is to realize that this isn’t a Platinum game with a Yoko Taro story. This is a Yoko Taro game with Platinum gameplay.

Mind you, this is going entirely on hearsay about Yoko Taro’s games’ reputation. Automata is my first first-hand experience with the Yoko Taro emotional trauma and existential pain train, but I think I’ve done enough research on the rest of his work to recognize his handiwork.

Don’t go in expecting a combolicious hack-n-slash with a strange story wrapped around it à la Bayonetta or Revengeance. You’ll be disappointed. Instead, expect a very self-aware action-RPG that doesn’t shove its self-awareness in your face but instead uses it to toy with your expectations and destroy your emotions one alternate timeline/perspective at a time.

Basically, NieR, but with actually good gameplay and an awareness that NieR already did the NieR thing. Which is what we wanted, so it’s all good.
