(more for elsewhere) The thing Karen hated the most was the uncertainty. Like that cute boy at the frat party who smiled at her, but something about his teeth was wrong and he looked… hungry. And she ended up going back to her dorm instead. Or that elevator, that some older girl reassured her was totally safe, but she had a weird gleam in her eyes, and the elevator made strange noises and didn’t always come when the button was pushed. When that new girl showed up out of nowhere, and claimed she was a transfer, but she looked too much like the painting Tom had done after he was taken. Maybe They couldn’t lie, but maybe they didn’t tell the whole truth, either. Not being quite sure was awful, because maybe that boy was nice, and maybe the elevator could let her skip 9 flights of stairs, and maybe that new girl deserved a friend. Or maybe not.
I’ve been binge watching Fine Bros Reaction videos and it just got me thinking.
This isn’t going to be coherent enough to be like a paragraph so it’s gonna be a list instead
-Bitty’s a YouTuber
-He posts regular updates to his vlog, and interacts with fans on his channel and through other forms of social media
-Now N never really tells us how YouTube famous he is, but I’m actually willing to bet that a vlog like that would have at least 1 million subs. But honestly I’m imagining more like 3-4 million, and these especially picked up during Bitty’s time at Samwell (like he had a smaller following before this, and the spike definitely happens like sophomore year and just grows into Junior/Senior year)
-(Bitty wasn’t hella aware of how much he was pining after Jack and people were there for the drama)
-SO YouTubers aren’t solitary creatures, they tend to interact with, and follow each other on YouTube and on other social media platforms
-And once Tubers become bigger, other bigger names notice them. They’re verified on Twitter, so any @’s they do are noticed by any bigger people
-(which means Beyonce definitely tweeted Bitty into his Junior/Senior year and says she loves his vlog)
-(this being in response to a tweet he sent out for his most recent video where he gushes on a Beyonce event)
-(Beyonce says she’s binge watched a lot of his stuff and now follows him on Twitter and YouTube)
-(Bitty is shook)
-So I imagine Bitty does lots of collabs! He’s totally done several with NerdyNummies, since they both bake
-and honestly? He’s paying for his college with this dough. Like he’s not making a small sum, and he donates a fuck ton of it to LGBTQ organizations, cause he likes money, but not that much.
-Like I can see him as someone who doesnt want to spend his money on himself
-Going on, he’s friends with a lot of YouTubers. He doesn’t talk about his channel much to his friends and teammates
-UNTIL ONE DAY HOLSOM BURSTS INTO HIS DOOR AND IS LIKE
-”BITS WHAT THE FUCK WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME YOU WERE GOING TO BE ON YOUTUBER’S REACT???”
-And Bitty kind of shrugs and is like “I mean, I told you guys I had a thing in NYC”
-Holsom is fuckin speechless and like dies and ends up subscribing to Bitty and watching a lot of his collabs and asking him questions and stuff
-Bitty gets into YouTube rewind for 2016
-When he gets asked, he DIES. He immediately tells his team, because this just isnt something he can keep in
-Also imagine Bitty with his silver and gold play buttons <3
-Tons of YouTubers have books, so after much prompting from his fans, he makes a cook book for them
-It sells millions of copies
-He’s on YouTubers React AGAIN but to react to Rewind
-Also, Bitty going to like Vid Con and being invited to Creator Summits
-Bitty having Vine and Music.ly phases
-Doing more collabs just with his team and like they love it and you can tell he’s just really relaxing into YouTube and like friendships and his like genuine openness about having a BF and being out to his channel and like having such a support group
-His parents totally know and love him so much. Suzanne is soooo proud of him and buys the cookbook and like all of her friends do too its SUCH a big deal
-Just <3 I need more of Bitty on YouTube and how this affects him because with his sunshine personality and everything, like he’d get a following. He really would.
BioShock is set in a dystopian future run by people who not only managed to make it all the way through Atlas Shrugged, but decided to base a whole society on it. One of the more terrifying aspects of the game are the “Little Sisters” – brainwashed, glowing-eyed little girls tasked with running around the crumbling city and extracting genetic material from the many corpses littering the ground. When the player comes across a Little Sister, they can choose to kill her and take all her genetic material for themselves, or save her for a much less bountiful amount of material. This choice determines which ending you get when you beat the game.
In the planning stage, the designers weren’t quite sure what these “harvesters” were going to look like, and the initial idea was to make them giant slugs. But the senior concept artist pointed out that it was hard to give the player a moral quandary about whether to spare a creature that most of us would beat to death with a barstool should we ever encounter it in real life.
Wisely realizing they needed the harvester to be something we could actually feel sorry for, they decided to try and come up with the most pathetic thing imaginable, a creative process that naturally resulted in a dog in a wheelchair.
An alternative design along these lines was a frog with a funnel stuck to its butt, a somewhat less obviously tragic creature, but one no less deserving of our pity. And because to achieve greatness you have to be willing to try literally anything, humanoid chipmunks were also proposed.
