Jack Zimmermann after the tenth time Dex yells "fine" at him:
William, how much more do you need for your dryer? Because I will literally buy you the damn thing if you let me kiss my boyfriend in peace.
William Pointdexter, hiding behind the couch, again, waiting for Jack and Bitty to do something fineable:
I would like to get an air conditioner this Summer, too.
Done, just go away. Please.
Dex, walking away:
And maybe some new light fixtures.
Jack, throwing his wallet at Dex's head:
Good night, Dex!
This ritual is to quiet/empty your mind of all troubled, pressing thoughts, releasing them into the universe, and knowing they will soon be answers.
You will need:
a white candle 🕯
a piece of notebook paper 📖
something to write with ✏️
a cauldron/bowl to throw burning paper into 🍵
🔥Light the white candle, saying “Candle of white, provide me clarity and light” as you charge it with your intention.
🔥Meditate on your thoughts and invoke the wisdom of the divine/universe to answer them.
🔥Tear off a small piece of notebook paper and write down your first thought. Light it and throw it into the cauldron, envisioning it being hand-delivered to God’s doorstep. (I used God because I’m a christian witch but if that’s not your game use whatever).
🔥Continue this process, repeating as many times as you need for individual thoughts, until all thoughts clear and you feel peace. For me this worked out to take up exactly one piece of notebook paper.
Rest knowing that you will be heard and your questions will be answered ✨
In 1959, the U.S. Government set up a memo of 3 regulations that Yeti hunters must follow. The rules they set up are as follows:
1. Royalty of Rs. 5000/- Indian Currency will have to be paid to His Majesty’s Government of Nepal for a permit to carry out an expedition in search of ‘Yeti’.
2. In case ‘Yeti’ is traced it can be photographed or caught alive but it must not be killed or shot at except in an emergency arising out of self defence [sic]. All photographs taken of the animal, the creature itself if captured alive or dead, must be surrendered to the Government of Nepal at the earliest time.
3. News and reports throwing light on the actual existence of the creature must be submitted to the Government of Nepal as soon as they are available and must not in any way be given out to the Press or Reporters for publicity without the permission of the Government of Nepal.
It’s really interesting that they spent the entire episode with Ms. Grundy trying to make herself seem sympathetic and innocent. Then the last shot of her is her getting into her car with her heart shaped sunglasses and staring at some of the boys as they walked past. Almost identical to her first appearance when she was driving by Archie with the same sunglasses. It just throws into light that she likely wasn’t telling the truth and she’s not as sympathetic as she tried to make herself seem.
Our groups’ Oread gets annoyed at an NPC Elf who was offering to buy most of our party for the night and flirting relentlessly otherwise. We all turn to leave, the Oread uses Treacherous Earth to destroy the Elf’s tent as he walks back to it.
Elf: How dare you!
DM: Roll for initiative, guys.
Literally the entire party save for the Oread chooses not to get involved
The Elf gets the first strike, dealing about 2 damage
Oread: I turn and break his spear in half.
DM: Alright, roll strength for that.
Oread: *rolls a natural 20*
DM: You grab the spear and strike downwards with your other hand with so much force that a sinkhole opens under the Elf.
The party members who can throw light down the hole to se the tangled remains of the Elf.
Me: Well I guess he got one hole filled tonight…
Oread: I WAS JUST TRYING TO SCARE HIM OFF
DM: Well murder hobos it is then!
Antipaladin: Hey, we were leaving!
Me: Yeah, murder hoBO. Singular.
To be completely honest I don’t see Percy being sexually interested in Annabeth. I see him more interested in fluffly, romantic/non-sexual stuff like dates and hand holding. I don’t know, I’ve tried reading Percabeth smut countless times and I just can’t see it.
what she means:
poussey washington was such a kind, sweet person and was genuinely good. heck, even her inmate picture is adorable. she was so sad and alone for such a long time but she finally found someone to love who loves her back and were actually planning their future together. she found an interest in cooking and planned to get a job doing that after prison. she deserved the world and had so much going for her but now she just gets to have her own headstone in the byg trope graveyard
So that scene seems kinda random and I’ve seen some people confused by it so I just want to offer up my interpretation of it.
Overall I think the defining feature of Victor and Yuuri’s relationship is how natural it is. Watching them interact feels like watch two real people fall in love. The comforting touches, the way yuuri stares at victor at random moments, the way they’re comfortable with each in really tender and honest ways.
Love stories have a tendency to stick to the romantic, grandiose gestures. Emotions and actions are always big, but real love also reflects in tiny moments.
Yuuri touching Victors hair was light, silly, a throw away thing. I think the episode would have been fine without it but I was so delighted to see it cause I related to it so much. It’s the sort of dorky, weird thing people do in real life that’s so charming but left out in fiction. It shows how closely he stares at Victor. How he takes in all the small details and gets lost in them.
I took a storytelling class with Stephen Tobolowsky and he told us the brain is delighted by small moments of truth. I think that’s the essence of why relatability is so funny and why so many people adored that scene. It makes us connect to the couple in ways we wouldn’t it a standard hollywood romance.
Ugh I just love how lighthearted and healthy and natural this couple is. I’ve barely seen anything like it.
