So the episode Ignis alternative ending just proved everything I’ve been saying about the game generally: It could have been AMAZING if they had of had more time to edit and refine it.

Because the episode Ignis alternative ending is more emotionally and narratively satisfying than the actual original ending (to a point, there’s still a few things I’d change if I made it the main ending).

I’m running a canned campaign in a sci-fi setting

Totally not-shady NPC: I’ll need you to retrieve my secret cargo from the abandoned spaceship, but it’s very private, so don’t look inside–

Player: Is it a girl in a box?

NPC: …What?

Player: This is a sci-fi story, and there’s a box you don’t want us to look into. There’s only ever one way that ends, and it’s always with a girl stuffed into a box.

Other Player: Hey, we don’t even know how big it is. It could just be a cigar box.

First Player: Okay, you’re right. It could be a bunch of sex toys. How big is the box?

NPC: It’s… uh… six feet long by three feet wide by three feet deep…

First Player: Ugh. Okay, fine. Somebody pack a crowbar and a spare set of women’s clothing. We need to go get this girl out of her box.

I cannot possibly emphasize what a constant trial it is being friends with me.

Ok but you know why I ship Keith and Lance so much, aside from how interesting and alive their dynamic/interactions are?

It’s because they are good for each other.

For Keith, Lance is someone that calms his temper when it counts, someone that isn’t afraid to speak his mind when he fucked up. But he’s also grounding, supporting him when he needs support, cheering him up when he’s down and listening to him when he has concerns about his own behavior. With Lance, Keith can let loose and grin and joke around - the only time he has made a joke without Lance was with Hunk and there was a distinct lack of a teasing smile/waiting for a reaction. He also knows that Lance won’t make fun of him for not understanding certain jokes or social norms, he has learned to simply turn to Lance for explanations.

For Lance, Keith is someone that listens. He can be honest about what bothers him and knows that Keith will take him seriously. More importantly though Keith is his equal. They are rivals, “neck and neck”. Keith is someone that continuously challenges Lance to better himself and even if he might feel inferior/jealous sometimes because Keith seems to be good at everything, he doesn’t doubt that Keith is someone in his reach. Lance admires him but has no delusions about his shortcomings (as it might be the case with hero-worship, he just honestly admires him). Keith is also someone Lance has fun with, Lance is competitive, the repeated challenges and the teasing make him happy.

I’m just?? All of that comes on top of the general team stuff. Because they “make a good team”. They trust each other in battle. They repeatedly save each other’s lives. They miss each other when they say goodbye. They openly worry about each other when one of them seems to be in trouble.

No, they aren’t perfect. They started out on the wrong foot and still mess up a lot. But they are trying, they care about each other and they are learning, there is no doubt that they are someone special in the other’s life.

Ravenclaws love and hate ambient noise. It needs to be a specific kind of noise depending on what they’re doing, and if it varies too far from the ambient noise they wanted, they just find it distracting.

I hope I don’t bother you when I’m upset. I don’t usually tell people things, so I’m sorry I let everything out all at once and just hope you can make me feel better.
