Nuclear Strike: Session 1 Highlights

So, here are just some of the highlights from last night’s session of Nuclear Strike:

  • Chad the rat found a jar of something radioactive and drank it. While he did get sick he got better, but now he’s got a cancerous growth on his back. Viinn’s biometric scans revealed that the growth has an exact DNA match with Chad and a further X-ray revealed that there was a little rat person growing in there. Also, a tiny skateboard? As Viinn put it, “Congratulations, you are with clone.” Sadly for Chad Jr. (who Chad intends to name Thad) his clone dad has no ambition, so he probably can’t look forward to any good parenting coming from him.
  • On their way to their main mission at the Heckhole (a giant subspace rift in reality) the group saw a number of interesting sights and sounds: a mountain that eventually disappears as you walk closer to it (called Mt. Big Ghosty Boy), a sulphuric oasis in the middle of the wasteland, an ICBM jutting from the ground as if it was some weird obelisk, and a giant scorpion with a tophat carrying a house, inside of which was a smaller giant scorpion with a smaller tophat.
  • Said scorpions were brothers who ran a store selling Scorpions & Scorpion Accessories. The group obviously bought a bag of scorpions from them with the star piece that Coriander found on the ground earlier (it was actually just a really cool rock, but Coriander was so convinced that it was a star piece that it became a star piece).
  • Returning for a minute to Fryer Tom and his special sauces: his modified mayo dispenser can fire mustard (toxic bomb), hot sauce (fire bomb), mayonnaise (sticky bomb) and smoky BBQ sauce (smoke bomb). We only got to see hot sauce and mustard during the first session, but hopefully he’ll get really experimental with his combat cooking in the future.

Next time the group will eventually make it to the Heckhole, where things will most likely get proper weird.

We Were Nothing Like The Rest - Day Two: Ladylake (Conflict/Trust)

And as I looked around, I began to notice
That we were nothing like the rest

Event + Prompt: @sormikweek Day Two - Ladylake: Conflict/Trust
Summary: Sorey struggles with the aftermath of his and Mikleo’s fight
Notes: Hello again! After yesterday’s cake induced diabetes fest, I decided that the next best course of action would be to write all the angst! This time, I’m writing about Sorey being all depressed, and Mikleo cheering up his boyfriend. 

For this prompt, I took a couple of lines from Mountain Sound by Of Monsters and Men. When the two first arrive in Ladylake, they realise how different they are: a seraph and a human with resonance in a place where humans don’t believe that the seraphim really exist.  

Also I like the idea that Lailah wears reading glasses when she’s reading or doing paper crafts, and I found it too adorable to not include.

And there is a Lailah pun as well :D

Contains a lot of angst. Sorry D:

Dwigth Schrute Lines that Sound Like Mountain Goats Lyrics

Dwigth Schrute Lines that Sound Like Mountain Goats Lyrics

I’m not a dedicated Mountain Goats fan, but I thought this post by @twentybrightpansies was hilarious, so I snagged some bars from John Darnielle performing You Were Cool and recorded Dwight’s lines over them for kicks. Anything can sound like a Mountain Goats song if you try hard and believe in yourself!

@converts

converts who have already been in the mikveh, converts who are almost ready to make things official, converts in the middle of their journey, converts who are just now starting to study seriously: you are Amazing!!! we are amazing!! how crazy is it that despite not being born Jewish, not growing up Jewish, we’re Here and learning things and growing and changing! 

if you grew up surrounded by a jewish community and always felt like you should be a part of it, or you have jewish family and are rediscovering your connections to the tribe, or you read a book or watched a movie about judaism and fell in love a little bit, or you learned about judaism in school and wanted to know more, or you stumbled upon it completely by chance and knew there was Something there for you

if you’re firm in your beliefs, or you have your doubts or and concerns and wrestle with your spirituality, or you’re an atheist or agnostic but you recognize the beauty and value in these ancient words and rituals and culture, whether you were raised in another faith or grew up without one

whatever your first language is, the color of your skin, your nationality, your race, your culture

if you’re struggling to increase your levels of observance, if you’re not able to go to a synagogue every weekend or you’re there 15 minutes early, if you’re working with one rabbi or you’ve met with ten, if your mouth has trouble fitting around hebrew or it comes naturally to you, if you sing along every friday or if you’re still learning the words to songs and prayers and stay quiet, if you’re waking up with the sunrise to go through morning prayers or barely remembering to stumble through the shema as you’re falling asleep, if your family and friends have welcomed your decision with open arms or if they’re confused or worried or angry 

if you’re converting orthodox, reform or conservative, if you get more excited with every new holiday, if you’re dreading not having a christmas tree, if you’re  working through the breakup of your love affair with bacon-wrapped shrimp, if you feel like you’re glowing the first time you’re invited to a shabbat dinner, if you’re wondering if you can join your school’s hillel, if you’re imagining what it will be like to stand under a chuppah someday, if you’re excited about the idea of someday helping your daughter prepare for her bat mitzvah, if you’re just starting to be confident enough to give your own opinions at torah study, if you’re struggling and singing and learning and studying and arguing and loving

stay strong! you are (or will be) an amazing addition to the tribe. you are enough. this is meant for you. keep on learning and doing. your experiences are just as authentic as anyone else’s, and you are (or will be) just as Jewish as anyone else. 

“Dearer to G-d is the stranger who has come of their own accord than all the crowds of Israelites who stood before Mount Sinai. For had the Israelites not witnessed the thunder, lighting, quaking mountains and sounding trumpets, they may not have accepted the Torah. But the stranger, who saw not one of those things, came and offered themselves to the Holy One, and took the yoke of Heaven upon themselves. Can anyone be dearer to G-d than this person?” 

(Tanhuma Buber, Lech L’cha, 6)

Description: You have the privilege of having Min Yoongi be many of your firsts. But what you’ve learned to realize, is that your first will not always be your last.



Life is full of beautiful moments. From the way the first dawn rises, when the early morning sun just barely peeks a hello from behind the rolling mist covered mountains, to the sound of a baby’s first cry, cheeks a furious red and fresh into a new foreign, but perfectly imperfect world. But perhaps it is the first times that are the most special, one’s first steps, first words, first friend. And you had the privilege of having Min Yoongi be many of your firsts.
