anyway i’m crying about the idea of keith finding comfort with hunk because he was the first person we saw who didn’t judge keith in the belly of the weblum episode and who tried to make light of something keith was still coming to grips with, who definitely still is.
hunk has so much potential to be a Rock to him, who can help alleviate his worries and his stresses, a calm harbor. a nice soft shoulder to lean on. someone who can make him laugh even when he doesn’t feel like it
wait do americans know why the monopoly money joke is so funny to canadians and goes beyond just having colourful money
like they do know that a set currency was introduced to canada when the hudsons bay company (a company dedicated to trading furs at the time if I remember correctly) had a monopoly over canada, so rly we started off with “monopoly money” and now we have colourful money.
Fuck you for cheating on me. Fuck you for reducing it to the word cheating. As if this were a card game, and you sneaked a look at my hand. Who came up with the term cheating, anyway? A cheater, I imagine. Someone who thought liar was too harsh. Someone who thought devastator was too emotional. The same person who thought, oops, he’d gotten caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Fuck you. This isn’t about slipping yourself an extra twenty dollars of Monopoly money. These are our lives. You went and broke our lives. You are so much worse than a cheater. You killed something. And you killed it when its back was turned.
Context: Me and two other people (including the DM) were doing a short side quest because the rest of our party couldn’t make it to the session. We had a gnome alchemist, a tiefling sorcerer, and two nps: a half-giant and a small mushroom child with a a pet wolf. The gnome had licked the mushroom child and was tripping balls while we all sat down to play a game of Bull-Shit with the teifling’s card deck.
Half-Giant: “Two Queens”
*Gnome has to pick up card deck and now has about twenty cards in his hand*
Gnome: "One Uno reverse!”
Tiefling: “Where did you get Uno cards?”
Gnome: “Same place I got the Cards Against Humanity Cards and the Monopoly money; from the pile of cards in the center!”
Everyone probably already knows this, but quick PSA if you want to take on this plot like a bawss:
* Plot confirmed for November. Battle segments confirmed.
* Train ur pet and hoard ur codestones. They may shoot up to tens of thousands once the battling starts.
* Be aware that the tradeability of battle pets may increase during a plot also!
* Don’t forget to buy healing springs items! Super Strength Healing Potions cost a measly 225 NP there, but you’re limited to one every thirty minutes, so there’s never enough once we’re in the thick of things–they inflated to thousands during the last plot. If you buy them consistently between now and November you’re either already stocked up for the fights or sitting on a nice profit or both, your choice. (If you need reminders, Windows has built-in timers that run in the background.)
All the bat kids have a certain maneuver for when they get mugged if they’re not in their suits. They all carry two wallets and throw one of them at the mugger. The wallet they throw is always full of Monopoly money. When the mugger opens the wallet just to find all the Monopoly money, the bat kid being mugged will sucker punch them. Dick invented this technique.
Admittedly, I am a true Braceface fan even though it’s one of those lost cartoons that never aired for very long. It was actually a very realistic show in terms of teenage drama. Luckily, the episodes can be found on YouTube, but something interesting caught me by surprise.
The money used in the show are different colours, but I never really thought about it much because cartoons usually aren’t completely realistic. Then I saw some of the YouTube comments asking why on earth they use “Monopoly money.”
It looked like there were a lot of comments asking the same question, and that’s when I started to think about it. If they use real band names and such, why couldn’t they use the colour of real money? Of course, I was extremely naive to think that they didn’t. Braceface isn’t even set in the United States. It is set in Elkford, British Columbia which is in Canada.
In Canada, the money is all different colours! I guess that’s just another perk of living in Canada, which is where I’d like to live someday when I can afford it.
So, sorry to disappoint, but that is NOT Monopoly money!
This is a gift for @squirrellygirlart who came with the idea and I just had to write it okay? #noregrets
“What if… I was an actual Princess?”
It was one of those nights when Marinette got tired of kicking ass at Mario Kart and they weren’t in the mood for a movie. So they just played a board game until they got bored and then began playing something like truth or dare or never did I ever. The last game was called ‘what if’ and it was mostly for funny, imaginary situation, given Chat couldn’t reveal too much about his personal life.
Chat tapped his chin thoughtfully. “I think if you would be an actual princess, everybody in the kingdom will love you for your kindness and you will have a long prosperous reign.”
Marinette smiled. “Thanks for the vote of confidence, kitty. Your turn.”
“What if I… was a stripper?”
There was a second of silence before Marinette’s flabbergasted expression turned into amusement and she burst out laughing. Chat pouted.
“Oh my god, please Chat. You want to pull that smooth flirt attitude off but you are just a sweet dork with puns and flirting lines from anime. I can’t see you as a stripper.”
Chat looked downright offended. With a huff, he got up and extended his baton until it looked like a pool that reached the ceiling of her room. He fixed it in place before going to her computer, opening YouTube and putting one the classic striptease song.
Saying Marinette was taken by surprise when Chat began to dance sexily while unzipping his suit, was a misunderstanding. She was in complete shock. Her jaw hit the floor as soon Chat climbed onto the pole. He was actually good. No, not good. He was great! What the actual hell when did Chat learned to do pole dance? Let alone do it that well.
As he was busy dancing while making seductive faces at her, Marinette found herself blushing. A lot. She even tried to use her pigtails to cover her face and miserably failed. Chat gripped the pole with his thighs before letting himself on his back and winking at her while licking his lips. As he kept dancing, Marinette unconsciously reached for the monopoly board. The next thing she knew was that she was throwing banknotes in his direction.
Chat let go of the pole with one hand and caught on of the banknotes. “Monopoly money? Really?”
“Well, excuse me for not being a billionaire to be able to pay you in actual euro.”
“You can always pay me in cookies and affection, purrincess.” he rolled his hips against the pole while blowing her a kiss.
“You’ll have to deal with the monopoly money until I go down for sweets.”
Marinette pulled her favourite pink cat themed sunglasses out of a drawer and put them on as she kept showering Chat in monopoly money.
Well, the night certainly took an interesting turn.
Pairing: Steve Rogers x Reader Featuring: Cooper, Lila, and Nathaniel Barton Rating: Teens and Up Summary: Reader and Steve find a quiet moment together while they babysit Clint’s children. Word Count: 1.2k Genre: Fluff! Warnings: Steve being a dork and it’s set before Captain America: Civil War. A massive thank you to @punkrockhippiefromthefourties for helping me.
Ah, Clint’s homestead. Something every superhero alive in this world would love to have. A stable home. A real home, with your own bed that wasn’t going to crack under another attack. A real home where you could have a nice warm shower that wouldn’t be interrupted because you were needed to save lives again. Feeling free, no duties and just a happy family to live with, that was what you aspired to get once in your lifetime.
Babysitting the kids was another story. Your friend Laura had asked you to watch after her three children while she would enjoy a date with her husband in town. You couldn’t say no, Clint was away most of the time in the year and you knew they needed romantic moments together because you felt yourself living the same story with your boyfriend Steve.
Steve. Watching after two kids and a baby wasn’t an easy task for the super soldier. Even if he was a great tactician in the field, changing a diaper or feeding Cooper, Lila and Nathaniel wasn’t the same thing and had been ridiculously difficult for him.
we have to grasp the intrinsic connection between private property, greed, the separation of labor, capital and landed property; the connection of exchange and competition, of value and the devaluation of man, of monopoly and competition, etc. – the connection between this whole estrangement and the money system.
