need some fun in my life!

anonymous asked:

headcanons or a scenario (whichever you’d rather do) involving comforting steve after his breakup with nancy? i need some comfort and fluff in my life fam.

fun fact when nancy drunkenly broke steve’s heart my heart broke too

  • i feel like steve was sure he and nancy were broken up with back at the halloween party, but he never got a chance to deal with it until he dropped off dustin at the snow ball
    • seeing nancy there, he sort of came to the realization all at once that he was now single.
      • he wasn’t mad, he wasn’t in pain, he just… didn’t know what he was
    • so he went home and called you, asked if you wanted to come over and watch movies and eat terrible food
      • at first, his request caught you off guard, because the last time you were asked to hang out like that with anyone, it was with one of your girl friends who was still aching over a breakup
      • so that’s when you put it together
    • you obliged and went over as quickly as you could
      • you brought the movies
      • steve supplied the junk food and the occasional beer
    • you two didn’t really talk all that much
      • when you did, it was soft laughs and quick exchanges and gentle utterances of “you okay” every so often
      • you never pushed it, because you knew steve would talk when he needed to talk
      • for now, you’d just be there for him
    • and you totally were
      • with his parents gone, you laid around in the living room across and against each other
        • he almost fell asleep when he laid his head on your stomach and you began to run a hand through his hair
        • he felt that peaceful with you
        • you were always there for him

Little Space: Apps

Here is a list of apps that make me feel little that I have, have played, or heard about. They are for all ages in little space. I did not group them by little age, as it varies person to person. These games may not be for everyone, but I hope this list helps! There are many coloring, cooking, dress up, and puzzle apps out there. The list would be far too long to be if any help if I included them all, but if you’re looking for more apps than this, you can go to search in specific categories in the App Store! I know this isn’t the longest list ever, but I will also be adding to it! If you have any more Apps you enjoy, feel free to add to the list!

I have an apple product, and I know these are compatible with Apple! I have labeled them by game type then by their developer if there are multiple games I enjoy by the same developer. If there is only one game by one developer, I will not list the decoder.

How to spend money

Okay listen up, this is probably super boring to a lot of you, especially those of you who still live at home, but remember this anyway because it will save your ass countless times and still leave room for fun in your life.

Never utter the words “I just got my paycheck so let’s go out” Never. It’s the worst fucking thing you can do to yourself.

Instead, save your money at the start of the month like you would at the end. Only pay your bills, maybe put some in your savings if you can, and only get what you need. Nothing extra.

If an accident happens, oh shit, you got some extra cash to help you with that.

But if nothing happens, you have extra cash at the start of the next month!

I call them “fun money” because I use them for fun stuff like going out with my friends, but they are also good for new shoes when your old ones die.

I learned this the hard way when I only had 100$ every month (and remember, things are ten times more expensive in Denmark than most other places) and this system was so effective I still use it to a lesser extent.

Please listen to this 32 years old lady. I promise you, you won’t regret it. It will save you so much stress.

My Life as a Cartoon Network Intern (and how I think you can Intern in Animation too!)

Over this past summer, I was given the amazing opportunity to be a Production Intern at Cartoon Network (I worked on Clarence; woo!)

Every once in a while I get people who either come up to me in person, or who message me on Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram etc. and ask me how I got the opportunity, and how they can intern in animation as well. Recently (Over the course of the last week or so) I’ve been asked a bunch, so I decided to create this massive master post in an attempt to get the information out to as many artists (and non-artists) as possible! 

I know a lot of people who feel like getting into the animation industry is completely impossible, (I should know, I felt the exact same way not too long ago) and I also know just how LITTLE references there actually are on finding an internship, and beyond that, the type of experiences that people who gotten the chance to intern have had. I told myself that if I got the internship, I would try to change that, and here we are! (A little late, but I really want to make this as helpful as possible)

If you all could please Reblog this to your followers I would love it! You never know who’s looking and hopefully, I can help people with my experiences! 

So to make it easier for people who don’t have the time to read all of my ramblings, AND for the sake of ease/reference; I’m going to break this post up into different sections: My Internship search My initial excitement/rejections - How I got the internship - My experience as an Intern and How Interning has helped me as an artist

My Internship search: 

Halfway through last year (My Sophomore year of college) I had decided that I would take a leap of faith and apply for some internships. I didn’t expect much of it, but my hopes were high because I thought I had at least a halfway decent portfolio, and my resume had some pretty okay animation experience on it (I’m the head of the only Animation organization on campus) and I’m majoring in animation so I had some 3D experience and 2D experience (which I’ve worked on on my own time, since it’s what I want to do) 

One of my biggest worries was the fact that I go to a state school: Southern Illinois University. The school is great, and I love it there, but I couldn’t afford art school, so I was very worried about how many opportunities there would be for me in Southern Illinois. Especially with the amount of amazing art that I see coming from people who go to schools like CalArs, Sheridan and the like. I was frustrated because I wasn’t there and felt like I would never get the opportunity to work in animation, which has been my dream since I could hold a pencil. Cartoons have changed my life, and they still do; but I was genuinely afraid that because I couldn’t afford a more art-related education, that I wouldn’t get the opportunity to tell stories like I’ve always dreamed. (But I digress) 

As I was saying: I was doing all of your standard (I want/need a job) searches to try to find something in animation: Glassdoor, Internships.com, JOBS.com; stuff like that. FUN FACT: I’ve read every single Glassdoor review for both Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. Every Job. All of them.

Some internships are a lot easier to find: Nickelodeon, Disney, Titmouse

While some are WAAAAAY more elusive: Cartoon Network… 

This narrowed my search down from a bunch of animation studios.. to a handful. My candidates were: Nickelodeon, Dreamworks and Titmouse. (All wonderful animation studios!) Now here’s where it gets interesting:

 My initial excitement/Rejections:

I didn’t hear back from any of them! NOT ONE. Which I learned after a very long, VERY stressful waiting period. (At this time it was early to mid April) Now; I knew that I was really too young to be applying for the internships, (I’m young for my grade so I was 19 at the time) And I knew that all of these internships specified that they wanted a Junior or above, but I figured since the year was almost over and I had good grades that MAYBE, they would let me slide. But I had no real experience working in animation, and although my hopes were high, they were also reeeeeeeal low. 

After waiting for the few weeks that I did, and not hearing a peep, I was dejected, frustrated, and I felt like there was no hope for me… Which leads us to…

HOW I GOT THE INTERNSHIP: 

When it comes to how I actually GOT the job: The answer I want to give you guys is that it was complete luck, and that by a series of random occurrences, somehow I was offered the position…. BUT, that’s only half true. Honestly, I worked really hard on making sure that I had as good a résumé as I possibly could: 

By that, I mean that I’ve worked really hard in school to get good grades/dean’s list/honors program, etc.; and I also started an animation organization on campus. (There’s a major, but there was a huge lack of enthusiasm and community within the program at SIU so I wanted to help to bring other artists and myself closer, and make great art while we’re at it) 

On top of that, I wrote (what I think was) a really good cover letter. But… Even with all three of those things, I don’t know if I would have gotten the position if it wasn’t for the internship coordinator at my school. I go to Southern Illinois University, and she pointed me in the direction of the Cartoon Network internship. (The Turner website isn’t like Nickelodeon, they only post internships when there’s a position to be filled)

LUCKILY for me, the Producer of Clarence (The wonderful Keith Mack) is an alum from SIU, so he connected with the internship coordinator (bless her heart) and I learned exactly when the position opened up. My resume and things got sent straight to him. I got a Skype interview a couple of weeks later, and I got accepted the day of the interview!

So I mean… Looking back, it was half luck, half hard work. 

It’s not like the grades and stuff really matter outside of college; Grades are just arbitrary letters, after all. But, I say that to say that I’ve tried to work hard in college even though I’m not at an art school, and that if you’re focused, it doesn’t really matter WHAT you’re good at; but how hard you work and the type of person you are. You can never go to college but be an amazing artist and an amazing person, and if you meet that ONE right person, or if you’re at that ONE correct place at the correct time; amazing things can happen; and I FIRMLY believe that. 

While I was at CN I was talking to someone (I don’t know if it’s best to call her out by name?..) But anyway she was telling me about how some of the artists are found at CN and she told me that Tumblr, YES TUMBLR. Is a HUUUUUUUUGE factor in the hiring of some people! So if you can… POST POST POST! Putting your art out there is the absolute best way to get seen. You NEVER know who’s looking at your artwork, and this website is an amazing platform for sharing, and learning about art. (And as a shameless plug: The blog Artists-Everyday is actually meant for just that ;) check it ouuuuut)

But moving forward; let’s talk about: 

THE INTERVIEW:

The interview to be an intern at CN was both really intimidating, and really comfortable at the same time. I love animation pretty much more than anything, so the idea that a single interview could determine whether or not I got a life-changing opportunity was pretty much one of the most daunting things that I could think of. The fact that I was in southern Illinois RIGHT at the time that I would have had to interview really didn’t help either… It was really scary to me, because it meant that I wasn’t going to be able to interview in person. It was a Skype interview, (a group one at that) and it was my first time ever interviewing for a position online. 

Once I got past all of the initial fear, the interview was smooth sailing. They had already seen my resume and cover letter; so we really just spent a lot of time talking about casual things: my favorite animated movie, what my favorite episode of Clarence was, etc. It wasn’t like your usual interview where they ask “why would we hire you” or “what is your greatest weakness” and I really appreciated that. They weren’t robots, they weren’t the ANIMATION GODS like I was imagining in my head – they were actual people, who happen to love animation, and the interview reflected that. 

I learned that I had gotten the position the day that I interviewed, and I’m SO GLAD I didn’t have to wait any more days, because at that point I was on fire on the inside. II don’t know what the hiring process was like for interns on different shows, so don’t take my word for how long it’ll take if you make it this far) 


MY EXPERIENCE AS AN INTERN/HOW IT’S HELPED ME AS AN ARTIST:

There is no one word to describe how amazing it is to work at Cartoon Network. A lot of CN stuff is “hush hush” high security, and they don’t allow you to take pictures of the inside of the buildings - So I’m not going to say much, other than: It’s magic. Pure magic. But I will say one thing: Free food. AT ALL TIMES. EVERY DAY. 

Working there is one of the most creatively satisfying things I’ve ever done in my life. The people, the atmosphere… it was all so inspiring. I’ve learned more in those past three months than I have in the last two years, and It’s all because I was surrounded by so many people who are better than me. People, who I might add, are some of the greatest, nicest, and most helpful people I’ve met in a long time. Plus, Cartoon Network really goes out on a limb to take care of their employees. 

I got to sit in on voice actors doing their recordings, I got to see storyboard pitches, I got to see animatics and assets for episodes that were unaired, and it was all being created right in front of me by such PASSIONATE people. 

I EVEN GOT TO MEET TOM KENNY. He remembered my name… 

As a production intern you get to see the logistic side of things: and you really grow to appreciate Production and that side of the industry, because without the production team, there would be no show! Even though I want to be a storyboard artist, I now know more about the industry and Cartoon Network as a whole, and it makes me feel much more connected to the shows that I watch on television.

One of the other biggest things about the program is the fact that I got to take storyboard/character design tests for practice, and I got the chance to pitch a show to the studio, in front of the Clarence Crew and even some really important executives! which was an AMAZING opportunity that I learned a TON from. I got amazing feedback, and I had to push myself harder than I’ve ever pushed myself before. Mentally, artistically, and personally. 


IN CONCLUSION

It’s possible. Being an intern at an animation studio is possible. Getting a job in animation is possible. Making friends in animation, and actually feeling like you belong to something you’ve dreamed about since you were a child is POSSIBLE. It doesn’t matter where you go to school, it doesn’t matter if you’re afraid, and it doesn’t matter what you look like. People are drawn to people who are genuine; and if you love animation, or production, or storyboarding or character design, and you work hard and try to really open yourself up artistically; you CAN do it. Take it from the 20 year old black guy who loves anime, video games and cartoons. You can do it. 


I don’t know how many people will see this or how helpful it actually is; but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE feel free to share this info with your followers, and on top of that if you guys EVER have any questions about my experiences or need me to clarify anything for ANY reason you’re absolutely welcome to contact me! 

I know how many people would love to intern, and I know (from experience) how DREADFUL It is to find conducive information about how the process works and how YOU can get an internship. 

Hope you guys stuck with this post till the end, and like I said if you ever have any more questions, (hell, or if you even want to share YOUR art with me… I’m always open!)

The reader often hangs out a the tavern and frequently flirts with Gaston… 

A/N: I just need more Gaston (Luke Evans) in my life. This just had to be done

Originally posted by luuuuuke-evans

Oh Gaston…. He was a real character that man was. He constantly did things that annoyed most, mainly how much he loved himself but it was fun to mess with him. You enjoyed it actually because he always seemed to believe what was going on and he actually laughed at it. 

The night was young and the tavern was full, per usual. Gaston sat in his chair while Le Fou stood beside him talking about who knows what. Though Gaston seemed a bit down for some reason, probley had something to do with Belle again. You grabbed a mug off the bar, which was meant for Gaston, and brought it over to him. You handed it to him and he looked up at you. 

“Not having a good day Gaston?” you question as you look at him; the look in his eyes showed that he was in no mood for games and he stated that in the bluntest if ways, 

“Go away harlot.” he growled; you rolled your eyes at what he called you, though you were called this often for you much more flirty ways, it did hurt when it came from him.

“Oh come on Gaston, you don’t have to be so rude.” you say as you do just as he says and leave him be. He seemed to be in a foul mood anyways but Le Fou was quick to try and pick him up, singing about all the amazing things about him. Everyone joined in and eventually he did as well and before you knew it everyone was dancing, you joined him up on a table and just danced. 

“Still not in the mood to see me?” you teased with a wide smirk; his smile grew on his face, 

“Maybe if you would stop being such a flirt I wouldn’t cast you away.” he says, 

“But where’s the fun in that, I love seeing you all flustered.” you say as you break from his gasp and jump to the table beside the one you were on. Everyone was still singing and having a good time, it was clear that Le Fou had successfully made him feel better. 

A few moments later things died down, there was still some chatter and drinking going on. You went about your business that was until someone grabbed your hand and turned your around. Your eyes quickly met the ones you recognized to be Gastons. 

“You left rather abruptly.” he said with a smirk; you matched his smirk,

“I did and I did rather enjoy the look on your face.” you say with a rather wide smirk, “But why would you complain? Unless you were going to do something?” you test and looked at him; his eyes had a glint in it but you couldn’t tell what they showed, 

“What if I was?” He pressed as he pulled you closer; you felt a tiny bit of shock but you brushed it off. 

“Then I guess I wouldn’t complain about it.” you say; now you were becoming flustered, you looked away from him but he stopped you, he used his thumb and pointer finger and turn your head and lock gazes again. You heart rate was speeding up. What was this? 

“Oh is that so?” he questioned; you had a feeling that this was a game but you kind of liked it. You gently poke his chest with your forefinger, 

“What are you getting at Gaston?” you question; he chuckled a bit before pulling away, 

“I like this.” he said before turning and walking away; you can’t say you were shocked, 

“Well played.”


It couldn’t have been days later but this was still going on and, by god, was it fun. The constant flirting, how close you would get to him but you couldn’t help but feel as though something was missing. Here you were, yet again, at the tavern, everyone was having a grand old time but you were lost in thought, that was until you felt a pair of hands on your hips. You were ready to beat the crap out of whoever it was but you quickly realized that it was Gaston, 

“Well look who it is.” you say with a smirk. He returned the smirk, 

“Why are you sitting here all by your lonesome, why don’t you come and join me.” he said as he walked over to his chair and sat down. The look on his face made your heart rate to speed up. 

Originally posted by luuuuuke-evans

You hesitantly stood to your feet and walked over to him. You hips swayed and extra bit as you walked. When you stood beside him he took you by surprise and sat you on his lap. You gasped lowly and looked at him; a wide smirk on his lips. 

“This is the only place you will sit.” your heart nearly stopped as he said that. You had forgotten your witty comeback but you quickly tired to come up with something to say, 

“Oh and why is that?”you question; he chuckled a low laugh before looking your straight in the eyes before saying, 

“Because you’re mine.”

hello my friends! in a moment of inspiration (aka me not wanting to write another paragraph for my essay), i have decided to make a post of tips! and hopefully it’s helpful to some of you :0 some of these are common and worth repeating, whereas others i haven’t seen? and are hopefully useful


disclaimer: i’ve only been in uni for one semester and everyone is different so if some of these don’t work for you then that is a-okay! also i don’t know much myself so feel free to comment/add as you please


YOUR LIVING SPACE

  • there will be a day where you need a Very Small Thing (socks, necklace, That One Homework Assignment, a paperclip, an earring) and you won’t be able to find it
    • how do you avoid this? easy. stay organized
  • have pillows/blankets if you can. they’re nice to sit on if your desk chair is hard and wooden. also you can be cozy and turn yourself into a burrito if it’s cold, 10/10 would recommend
  • be nice to your roommates and/or suitemates if you have any
  • on that note, set rules right away
    • possible things to consider when making room rules:
      • whether or not you’re okay w having alcohol/substances in the room
      • if you wanna know when your roommate’s friends are hanging out in the room (i personally have to mentally prepare myself to walk into my room and see 8 people hanging out)
      • if visitors are allowed to sleep over, and if so, how many days in advance do you wanna know
      • snack policy. shared? individual? ask before you eat?
      • what time is “quiet time”
      • if you’re gonna sleep and i have hw, is it okay if i stay in the room or is that distracting?
      • who takes out the trash/cleans the bathroom/vacuums (switch off every week? one person does each thing? do it if you see it needs to be done?)
    • sometimes you will have to compromise and that’s okay

FOOD

  • eat. eat 3 meals. eat 4 if you want. just please please eat
  • don’t skip meals. it’s not healthy and you should treat your body nicely bc it’s the only one you have
  • get a water bottle and bring it with you to class
  • have snacks. have ones that come in little containers or smaller packets. put them in your backpack. pull those bad boys out when it’s 3pm and you still have 2 more classes and you need a little pick-me-up
    • fruit is good. apples, oranges, bananas, plums, etc.
  • my food tag has lots of easy things to make
    • or just google “easy college food” and you’ll find stuff too
  • freshman fifteen doesn’t have to be a thing if you are mindful of what you’re eating and how much you’re exercising and all of that
    • also a little weight never hurt anybody so calm down and be nice to yourself and know that it’s okay

CLASSES

  • i don’t ever skip class. maybe you will have an easy class and you will want to skip it. it’s up to you.
    • however, you will not be able to skip class all semester and teach yourself everything about an unfamiliar subject
  • make friends in your classes. text them. eat lunch with them once in a while so they know who you are when it’s halfway through the semester and you’re sick and miss two lectures and need their notes
  • know when the tests are. study for them. even if it’s a subject you know well, study anyway and get a 100%
  • sometimes professors change exam dates. or they assign extra homework.
    •  they might post it online or email you or something
    • or they might announce it in class. and if you’re not in class then you won’t know. so maybe go to class
  • stay on the cautious side your first semester. don’t overwhelm yourself with 5 difficult courses. after that, tailor your schedule times and difficulty to suit you

HOMEWORK

  • do it, and do it asap
  • i’m not kidding, it will save you so much trouble later on
  • start studying for tests at least a week in advance
  • prioritize things. yeah that discussion post is really interesting but if your professor just checks it for participation, then maybe spend less time on that and instead prioritize the project that’s 20% of your grade
  • if a prof’s office hours don’t work then email them, usually they’re nice and will find a time that works for both of you
  • i’m not kidding you should really do your hw asap

EXTRACURRICULARS

  • stick with what you like. stop what you don’t like.
  • go to club meetings, they’re usually not longer than like an hour (mine are only 30mins) and the club heads will notice you and appreciate you
  • it’s a nice way to meet people who are interested in similar things 

SOCIAL LIFE

  • ask people to eat lunch with you. 90% of the time they will say yes.
    • the other 10%, they either already ate or are in class, but they would if they could. don’t take it personally if they’re busy
    • seriously ask people to eat with you. it’s a nice way to get to know people
  • do things off-campus once in a while. go to museums, the beach, shopping, laser tag, escape rooms, etc
  • do things on-campus too. there are usually cool events and sometimes they end up being a lot of fun
  •  don’t go to parties if you don’t want to. it’s okay.
    • don’t drink if you don’t want to. seriously. it’s okay. people will understand. and if they don’t, then they’re not a good friend

OTHER TIDBITS

  • if you live close to home, visit your family, but also spend time with people/friends. they want to get to know you
  • if you live far from home, hang out with your friends, but also take time to call your family (+ pets) and update them on your life. they miss you
  • have some cash on you if you can. i keep ~$20 on me
  • things get stolen on campus. don’t leave your stuff lying around. bring your backpack into the bathroom if you need to
  • get a stapler. professors like it when you staple things
  • headphones/earbuds. you will use them at some point
  • find time to read for fun, it’s a nice way to get away from screens and think about something else

AND THAT’S A WRAP!!
Good luck, all! My ask is always open c:

Stiles isn’t sure why all these werewolves think they have access to his bed. The explanation is just. Weird.

People were sometimes to surprised when they realized who the Alpha of Beaconhills was.

They Were Pack by Shippings_galore

Stiles gets the new pack to go to prom. Lydia invites the old pack members (that we all miss and love), not telling him (or the new pack) that she had also invited a certain Sourwolf.

Stiles doesn’t exactly mean to start cleaning up after everybody, it’s just that, well, sometimes he thinks Derek turned them into actual animals.

One hundred days, ten scarves, one Christmas, and Stiles’ dormant magic has to ruin everything.

It’s Saturday night, and Derek Hale is at Toys R Us. Shopping for Leapfrog games. If asked, it wasn’t exactly how he pictured his life. Or his Saturday nights.

In which Derek and Stiles have been married for ten years, have two kids, and are planning their five year old’s birthday party.

The Hale House of Mythical Creatures by Demimonde (Katherene)

Stiles is eight when his mom dies.

Stiles is eight when his dad drops him off on the Hale’s front porch and then leaves him there.

This is the story of a little lost Spark growing up in a place that might have been made for him all along.

Living With Lycanthropy by WhoNatural

(1/1 I 44,095 I Explicit I Sterek)

Wherein they both own bakeries, Stiles tries not to run his grandmother’s legacy into the ground, Laura wants to be a better alpha, and Derek can’t seem to get Stiles’ attention the regular way - so naturally, he accidentally initiates a prank war.

(Or, if Teen Wolf was more like Gilmore Girls, with everyone far too invested in whether the Hale boy and the Sheriff’s kid will work it out, and Laura Hale wrote a handbook for alpha werewolves.)

The Littlest Alpha by triedunture

(16/16 I 52,508 I Explicit I Sterek)

Derek and Stiles have taken out the Alpha Pack and pretty much saved the world. Okay, the town. Okay, their remaining friends. But the Alphas left something behind: a baby. And this baby is an Alpha too. Derek is determined to take care of the abandoned child, and Stiles is stuck going along for the ride.

But Stiles doesn’t expect the ride to include seeing another side of Derek, or to find another way to say “family.”

Stiles accidentally summons he and Derek’s children from the future to the present.

between the click of the light and the start of the dream by thepsychicclam

(10/10 I 105,192 I Explicit I Sterek)

A twig snaps, and then Stiles hears breathing and the rustle of leaves. He strains to get a better glimpse into the darkness, but it’s pointless. There’s nothing but a black void.

It’s Stiles’ senior year, and he’s trying to concentrate on normal things - like the lacrosse championship, spring break, prom, graduation (and definitely not Derek) - when he starts having nightmares and waking up in the middle of nowhere. Oh yeah, and he’s being haunted by a hag. Great.

truthteaserum  asked:

Hey I just that evil smiling picture of you playing dnd. I was wondering what you did to become a good dm, I've been curious about playing the game for a while and I think I have to be the dm if I want people to play with lol. Thanks for any help

I promise I didn’t ignore you! I’ve been real busy this week, and wanted to treat this question with the respect it deserves. Thanks for asking me…and assuming I’m a good DM, lol. I try to be good by following the cardinal rule: if you and your players have fun, you win! It’s easy to think it’s you v. the players as a DM, but really it’s a story you’re all making together, you help keep it going smoothly but it belongs to all of you. Once you look at it all from that perspective it gets less stressful, for me at least. Now I know it’s kinda weird since I did kill my players in that picture you saw going around… But that was a one shot. And there were ample opportunities for them to reverse the tide, but the dice were not on their side.

Anyway. I’m sure you’re looking for more concrete answers. Here are the most important things I did in learning to DM.

1. Watch D&D games
I watched Critical Role for a few weeks. After years of being afraid to DM, Matthew Mercer made it look easy and fun. He told fun stories and had varied characters and his players were so invested! The more I watched the more I wanted to play. And the best part about watching Critical Role is that there are 102 episodes and counting. Tons of material to mine for ideas. Another good one is The Adventure Zone podcast. It starts out a little slow for my tastes but once you get into it it’s AMAZING. I love the story in this one, it’s a great way to show you don’t have to stick to typical fantasy tropes to have a great game. Any genre can be a fun game.

While watching, I paid attention to what kinds of rolls the DM called for in situations, how many monsters you could throw before combat gets hazy, how hard it is to DM for lots of people, how long combat takes, how to describe effects based on dice roll, and most importantly, when to stone face your players and when to laugh like the evil genius you are.

2. Get tips from experts
Okay, so, now you think you could probably do the thing, but you don’t want to screw it up right out of the gate. I spent years too scared to DM because it seemed like there was too much to know. I went looking for words of wisdom and found the aforementioned Matt Mercer’s GM Tips. It’s a great series of videos that are short and helpful, split up by topic. Another great series of videos is anything from Matthew Colville, whose Running the Game videos are probably the second largest influence on my work as a Dungeon Master (after Matt Mercer). I also read tons of articles from the official D&D website, like the Sage Advice column. I read every Unearthed Arcana article and thought about how those adjustments compared to the Player’s Handbook. I signed up for the Roleplaying Tips mailing list run by Johnn Four, whose advice is probably the third largest influence on my DMing. I heavily recommend it also because it’s great to get a reminder to work on D&D every few days when a new tip arrives in your inbox. Seriously the best mailing list I’ve ever been on. He also answers questions and solicits answers from the community, so he’s a great resource for obscure wonders.

3. Join a community
This kind of follows from the previous point about advice from Johnn directly. If you’re really struggling with the density of the Core Rulebooks and are daunted by the many columns and tables, a community can help explain things. For instance, I had a lot of trouble parsing how exactly XP adjusted values work. I asked online, and someone helpfully pointed out the reference and made an example so I’d get how to use it myself. Tumblr is good, but I prefer reddit for D&D things. Some great subreddits are r/DMAcademy, r/DMToolkit, r/DnDBehindtheScreen, r/mattcolville (yes, that same Matt Colville), r/UnearthedArcana, and r/worldbuilfing.

There are a number of other forums specifically for D&D that I have accounts for but never use, mostly because I am still recovering from my forum days… I won’t date myself and say how long ago.

4. Google is your friend!
I google everything I need for D&D. Sometimes, even though I know the information I want is in my PHB, the book is on my shelf and I’d have to search for the info. The internet can tell me what I need to know NOW. So! Here’s my advice for googling D&D stuff, along with some of my favourite links.

Rules: Include ‘5e’ or ‘fifth edition’ along with the keyword you’re looking for. This will reduce your chances of ending up on a site intended for players of another edition.
Spells: Don’t google them, go to dnd-spells.com. Seriously. This website saves my life every time I play D&D. You can also make spellbooks for your characters and then generate pdfs before your game! It’s MAGICAL!
Monsters: Homebrew monsters can be fun but be careful when implementing them in your game. If you need help building encounters (like I do), use Kobold Fight Club.
Images: Google image search can get you really general or really specific stuff. If you want random images to inspire you you’re better off looking at something like The MET.
Names: There is one site to end all sites for this. For all other generators, see donjon.

5. Steal like an artist
I have a lot of fun watching, reading, and playing other types of media and thinking, “I’m going to steal that for my game.” I love comic books for example. Recently, I decided to put Iron Man into my game. Not for any reason, just because it would be fun. I didn’t simply put Tony Stark as a rich human noble into my game and wait for my player to meet him so I could do my best Robert Downey Jr. impression. I thought about what makes that character exciting and recognizable and transported it into the steampunk world of my campaign. I changed his name and race. I made him an Artificer, a Gunslinger protective of his prototypes (*waves at Taliesin*), who could also build Mech Suits that are as much works of art as they are feats of magical engineering. I gave him an assistant with a romantic love triangle and let him loose in my world. It was so much fun to watch my player figure out my inspiration! Not every NPC needs this level of detail, but all your choices should circle back to ‘How well would this work in MY world?’

By taking inspiration from the things you love, filling in the 'gaps’ to breathe life into your universe should come easily. I didn’t know Tran Intubi (Tony Stark) had a gallery of retired mech suits in his Tower but I described as such in-game. The description came naturally when I had a base inspiration to rely on.

I hope that was more helpful than long-winded!

I hate when people refer to my drug addiction as “partying”. The party stopped long ago before the addiction began, it hasn’t been partying since the very beginning  of my drug use. I may be high, but it isn’t fun anymore, certainly no where near a damn party. I need to invade my veins with smack and my lungs with crack just to function normally enough to start my day.  My life is consumed by addiction. Partying is a part of most peoples lives at some points on weekends or late nights, addiction is such a massive part of my life that when the weekend ends and the night turns to day I’m still trapped in the brutal cycle of drug addiction, this is no fucking party, it’s a nightmare.

The Three Mistakes Of Wen Junhui (And One Really Great Decision)

Author: Finn

Word Count: 6.4k

Summary: Jun has no idea how he’s gotten himself into this mess (but he really, really likes it).

(A/N: This is officially the longest and filthiest thing I have ever written. I’d be ashamed of how shameless it is but I spent a really long time on it… I’m sorry for deviating so much from the original prompt but I had a lot of fun writing it, so… I hope you all enjoy it! ~Finn)

(Warnings: Daddy/Master kink, slut-shaming, blowjobs, spitroasting, Extreme Gay™, overstimulation, double penetration, Minghao is a little shit, awkwardness towards the end)

(Admin Note: my beautiful son has done it again. I cannot even begin to express how blown away I am by this and by all of his work - he’s gonna one-up me on my own blog if I’m not careful. (I’m gonna need to post some life ending smut soon to top this. cause this is pretty damn life ending). just. Finn. wow. gonna steal my Golden Dick award. damn. a Momma has never been more proud. -Tanisha<3)

The car is quiet. Jun stirs imperceptibly, becoming aware of the silence from his earphones and a low murmuring voice from somewhere just behind him – are those Chinese words?

Thoughts on Season 3

The Good:

  • The Galra generals are a badass bunch of ladies and I literally cannot wait for them to be on screen again. Literally every single one was interesting and had a distinct personality. I am 100% convinced  Acxa is Keith’s sister.
  • Lotor is an awesome villain. Like, wow, I was not expecting to like him that much, or at all really, but he’s a serious guy who is going to be a major opponent for the paladins and maybe also his father.
  • I REALLY  liked Zarkon and Honerva’s backstory. I was incredibly surprised that the creators of Voltron were able to handle the story with some tact and nuance. Theirs is a love that was corruptive and unhealthy and lead to their deaths. It’s a tragedy, and I loved that Honerva is the one that led Zarkon to the dark, and Zarkon’s motivation was always his love for his wife and his people. A+ villain development
  • We got to see sniper!Lance become canon. I really liked that they showed Lance being a part of the team. I also like that they have finally been exploring Lance’s insecurities a bit more.
  • I loved the alternate universe, and the Sven and Slav interaction was a lot of fun. I loved how badass Slav was in that universe. He’s a great character and needs to be recurring.
  • We are finally getting some emotional displays between paladins, particularly Lance and Keith.
  • Pink Paladin Allura????? Saved my life????? (I wanted Black, but I will take Pink)
  • Alfor was like…. cute? And I have a crush on Gyrgan???? Blayatz hit on a male Galra??? When Zarkon looked at Honerva the first time he actually looked…. dare I say cute?
  • The Shiro clone plotline has potential
  • Dare I say Shlav confirmed???? In at least one reality.

The Bad:

  • WHERE. WAS. LANCE????
    • Since the season was so rushed, a lot of things fell through the cracks, but I think the biggest was potential character development for Lance. Just like Alfor agreed that being Zarkon’s right hand man was a better fit for him than leading, I would have really loved to see Lance step up and realize that Blue would accept Allura and he was needed in the Red Lion. I would have loved to see the conversation between him and Blue where he says goodbye (for now). Instead, we have Blue refuse to open up to him in the middle of a battle (which I think is more a quality of Red) which put the team in danger.
  • Coran had, like, 1 line. Coran needs more attention, he’s a very interesting character, and all too often he’s written off as solely comic relief.
  • Spending a whole episode on Shiro’s time alone didn’t add anything to the plot. His stay on the ice planet did nothing to further the story, and didn’t hint as to whether or not he is actually Shiro. All it did was muddy the plot.
  • Did not see enough Hunk or Pidge.
  • I’d also like a little more Allura time, too, thanks.
  • We’re finally getting to see some emotional interactions between paladins, but it’s not enough. Lance and Keith had a few talks, but where’s Allura and Hunk’s bonding moment? How is Pidge doing? She’s lost both Matt and Shiro?? There needs to be a lot more emotion happening.

The Ugly:

  • It seems like the writers don’t have an endgame. From a narrative standpoint, this season (and the whole show, really) makes no sense. It doesn’t follow the traditional hero’s narrative, which I think for this case, would have worked out a lot better. Because they were a bit lazy and cut the season in half, this season didn’t move the plot anywhere. Because 2 of the 7 episodes were episodes about characters never met before, the main plot was lost and stunted.
  • What makes a story good is the action, consequences, and reaction. The best stories can take have a single action have lasting consequence for years (seasons, chapters–whatever). Voltron has yet to explore any consequences in a significant way.
    • Coran and Allura are literally the last of their kind. There is no way to get over that immeasurable grief and they do both characters an incredible disservice by not exploring that more.
    • Shiro was gone. We got to see some consequences but they barely scratched the surface. They had to switch around Lions and Keith became leader. But we really only get 2 episodes of barely any explanation. It’s devastating to lose your leader, and Keith’s learning curve was ridiculous. He made 1 single mistake and then all of the sudden was as good a leader as Shiro.
    • Shiro came back after being gone for some time. This, too, has significant emotional impact and the consequences of this return should last a long time and be a point of conflict. 
  • I hated the origin story of the Lions and have retconned it already. It’s a horrible narrative choice for a lot of reasons.
    • The first one is the dichotomy between Altean=good, Galra=bad. The writers tried to address this by introducing the Blades of Marmora and the alternate universe Alteans. But at the same time they still keep hitting us over the head with the Alteans as pure, white, good, light imagery and the Galra as evil, dark, and bad. Why couldn’t the Lions be their own entity, created by themselves or by an outside force? 
    • This means that there has only been one set of Paladins before the show. Since the universe is, y’know, massive and time is relative there is no way that Voltron would have become a universal “legend” over a single lifespan. There should be countless Paladins before even Alfor and Zarkon (think Avatars from ATLA).
    • Having Alfor as the sole creator of the Lions rings so, so false. First of all, they claim he’s an alchemist… so like engineering isn’t really a part of that. Second of all, the Lions have their own sentience. This elevates Alfor to a literal god-like figure. He created life. And that just doesn’t fit the story at all. This was a huge huge narrative mistake.

Overall Review: Better than season two but still lacking. Not a bad season, but a directionless one. Rushed and choppy,  5/10

ANYWAY...

We all know that I’m a little bit peeved at my girl Clarke right now, but you guys have got to stop saying Clarke doesn’t love/need/care about Bellamy when the narrative explicitly states over and over that she absolutely does. 

In honor of my frustration have a list of my favorite “Clarke Griffin loves/trusts/needs/cares for Bellamy Blake” moments. (Note-this is not even close to being all the moments and mostly consists of verbal confirmation of feelings). 

I have included links for each scene which you can watch by clicking the Episode Number. When you watch the scene make sure you focus on Clarke’s facial expressions and her tone. I’d also like to point out that each Season has more Clarke related Bellamy feels than the Season before it even as Bellamy and Clarke spend less physical time together and in Season 3-the Season were Clarke was the most detached from her people as a whole, the obvious expressions of affection for Bellamy still increased!)

Season 1

1.  “Hey, you saved my life today. You may be a total ass half the time, but I need you. We all need you.” (Day Trip-108)

2.  “When you sent us down here, you sent us to die, but miraculously, most of us are still alive. In large part that is because of him. Because of Bellamy. He’s one of us and he deserves to be pardoned of his crimes just like the rest of us.” (Day Trip-108)

3.  “I trust him!” (Day Trip-108)

4. “So do you, by the way” (about Bellamy deserving to have some fun in Unity Day-109)

7. “I want you to say that you’re with us….I gave them an easy choice, but 5 minutes ago, they were willing to fight and die for you. You inspire them. And I’m afraid we’re gonna need that again before this day is through.” ( We Are Grounders – Part II-113)

8. “You did good here, Bellamy.” ( We Are Grounders – Part II-113)

9. “Wait, Bellamy’s not back yet.” (We Are Grounders – Part II-113)

10. “He’s never gonna make it. Bellamy, run!”  (We Are Grounders – Part II-113)

11. “He’s killing him.”  (We Are Grounders – Part II-113)

Season 2

1. “Finn and Bellamy? I thought they were dead. I thought they were dead. I thought they were dead.” (Human Trials-205)

2.  “Bellamy.”-and that hug, you know the one (Human Trials-205)

3. “Did you get any sleep?” (Human Trials-205)

4. “You won’t be by yourself.” (Fog of War-206)

5. “Bellamy and Octavia?” (Fog of War-206)

6. “Where have you been?” (Long Into an Abyss-207)

7. “Bellamy’s right, we have to go.” (Spacewalker-208)

8. “I can’t lose you, too.” (Remember Me-209)

9. “I was being weak.” (Remember Me-209)

10. “Bellamy? Are you alright?” (Coup de Grace-211)

11. This face (Blood Must Have Blood Part II-216)

12. “May We Meet Again.” (Blood Must Have Blood Part II-216)

Season 3

1. “I’ll do anything. I’ll stop fighting!” (Wanheda-Part II-301)

2. “I need to see Bellamy.” (Hakeldama-305)

3. This entire scene (Hakeldama-305)

4. “Too bad you were never that devoted to Gina.” (Nevermore-311)

5. “You’ll recover.” (Nevermore-311)

6. “Bellamy!” (Demons-312)

7. “Promise me.” (Demons-312)

8. “You wanted me.” (Demons-312)

9. When she turned to smile at Bellamy after realizing how to contact Luna.(Join or Die-313)

10. “The question is: Will you forgive yourself?” (Join or Die-313)

11. “We need each other, Bellamy.” (Join or Die-313)

12. This hug. (Join or Die-313)

13. “Together.” (Join or Die-313)

14. “But you’ll be covering us the entire time and I trust you.” (Perverse Instantiation Part I-315)

15. “Start with Bellamy Blake.” (Perverse Instantiation Part I-315)

16. The Clarke initiated hand-holding (Perverse Instantiation Part II-316)

17. “You don’t ease pain, you overcome it. And we will. Together.” (Script to Screen Release confirms Clarke was thinking of Bellamy here)-(Perverse Instantiation Part II-316)

18. “Because we didn’t.” (Perverse Instantiation Part II-316)

Season 4

1. “Thank you. For keeping me alive.” (Echoes-401)

2. “Bellamy, don’t!” (Echoes-401)

3. “Yes, you will!” (The Four Horseman-403)

4. Clarke writing down Bellamy’s name. (The Four Horseman-403)

5. “Bellamy should be back by now.” (A Lie Guarded-404)

6. “Hey, any word from Jaha? Did they find Bellamy’s unit?”-make sure you pay attention to Monty’s response-it’s perfection! (The Tinder Box-405)

7. Clarke’s face when Monty says “No sign of Bellamy or Stephens.” (The Tinder Box-405)

8. “Your move, Wanheda.” (The Tinder Box-405)

9. “You think you can shake my resolve? I was willing to sacrifice my own mother to stop A.L.I.E..” (The Tinder Box-405)

10. “Bellamy, are you OK?” (The Tinder Box-405)

11. Clarke’s concern. (We Will Rise-406)

12. “Is it Octavia?” (We Will Rise-406)

13. This smile (We Will Rise-406)

14. “She’ll see how special you are.” (We Will Rise-406)


And again-these are not all the moments that indicate that Clarke has feelings for Bellamy. So many of you all are frustrated with what you perceive as Clarke’s lack of care for Bellamy that you fail to recognize one of the most realistic portrayals of human love on this show. You also need to remember that not everyone loves/displays love in the same way. While Bellamy is more open with his emotions (which makes sense considering he is the “heart”), Clarke tends to keep her feelings shuttered until they come bubbling out. 

Of note? Clarke has canonically shown more depth of emotion for Bellamy, her “platonic” partner than she has for any of her canon romantic love interests. 

So can we PLEASE just stop with the “Clarke doesn’t care about Bellamy” rhetoric now?

release the accidentally selling your souls to a demon story

So my birthday is only two days before Halloween. 

The day after I turned 13, I had my birthday party, which just consisted of my two friends sleeping over. It was a pretty average night, we just ate pizza, made some weird videos and watched movies. Everything was fine. 

Morning time comes- and we’re all pretty Buzzed. It’s Halloween, I was officially a teenager, we had some cool costumes planned, we were all very hyper and giggly that morning. We didn’t want our party to end yet so with some calls home, the girls were set to hang out at my place for pretty much the rest of the day- but we then realized we didn’t have anything to do. My mom had to go to Target for some reason or another, and told us if we went with her, she’d buy ‘any movie you want’ for us to watch. So we went. 

Now, firstly- anyone who’s ever been inside a Target knows it’s Not A Real Place. Secondly, the veil is always thinner on Halloween (facts) so this Target had suddenly become…Super Weird. Like, brighter and hazier than normal, and it’s like 9 in the morning and we’re roaming the empty and seemingly abandoned aisles in our pajamas. It just felt like one wrong step and you’d find yourself in another dimension, really intensely. 

We get to the movie aisle and start looking around. Now, at the time, I was the only one of my friends who actually liked horror movies- Raychel loves them now but she was the BIGGEST WIMP when we were kids, and Angie was just Very Quiet And Easy To Startle- but, like, Halloween. Teenager. The girls were surprisingly down for getting a horror movie, which in itself might have been a Warning Sign, but hey, I was stoked about it. We were going through some classic titles but nothing was really jumping out at us- until we see a dvd case, not even on the shelves, it was lying on the floor half shoved under a discarded shirt. The cover was pure white with a clown face laughing out at us. The title card read “Stephen King’s IT”. 

None of us had seen it before- but we had heard about it. It was one of those movies that the adults™ always got weird about, like Chuckie the Killer Doll or the Exorcist. Like it was something that actually scared them. So, like, we knew we totally had to get it. 

My mom tried to put up a small fight with “you’re only supposed to be getting into PG13 not R” (lmao as if this woman has ever given a flying fuck with restrictions I watched so much age inappropriate stuff starting at like age 4) but she quit pretty quickly. The entire ride home was met with “Okay I never watched the full version but it is a Very Scary Story so you’ve been warned!! Don’t start complaining when you’re scared!!!” stuff like that, you know. So we get home, pop some corn, get some hot chocolate, and jump in front of the tv and turn it on. 

So like…firstly, I think we all know by now that the original movie (or miniseries, whatever) isn’t actually That Scary. Secondly, I’m a fucking gem to watch movies with because I make a lot of jokes and laugh at the characters actions. And thirdly, it’s like thirty hours long. So we were all having the time of our damn lives here. Like, there were definitely parts that did scare us (Raychel had trouble with Bev’s bathroom scene. Angie hated the part at the sewers with Ben. Personally, I got freaked out by Eddie’s shower scene and sometimes I still find myself covering the drain with my feet just in case lol. And the blood balloons and the restaurant scene got to us too), but we were still all having a total blast. Watching this movie for the first time is still like a prime happy memory! But, you know, things come to an end. The movie was over, Raychel got picked up and Angie had to head home too (we were meeting up after dinner for trick or treating). I decided to walk Angie home since it wasn’t that far. 

The Veil Still Felt Thin. 

On the walk we kept talking about the movie, and made a point to not walk close to any sewer grates. Our small PA town bore enough of a resemblance to Derry for Angie’s comfort. But it was a nice day, you know? It was late afternoon, birds were chirping, sun was shinning, leaves were blowing everywhere, cars are honking hello at us, front doors were open and little kids could be heard excitedly yelling about their costumes. It was a day that struck me as very picturesque. We eventually got to the place where she could just shortcut through someone’s backyard, so we said ‘see you later’ and suddenly I found myself all alone. 

As quick as a snap, it’s suddenly dead silent

And I don’t mean “oh, someone closed their door and we can’t hear the kids any more” like seriously. It was unnaturally silent. No talk, no birds, no wind, no cars. The street was deserted. I couldn’t even hear myself breathing. I thought I had gone deaf at first! It was getting darker, only it was like an hour before that was supposed to happen and there weren’t any clouds near the sun. The air felt burning hot and freezing cold at the same time. I felt like a million eyes were watching me, except I was alone on a dark empty street, all the doors closed, all the curtains pulled shut. There wasn’t even so much as a squirrel or bunny running bye. I thought about calling out to Angie to see if she was still in the back yard, to see if she noticed anything, but the bushes weren’t rustling or moving at all. She wasn’t there. I was 100% alone. 

I start hearing a quiet, deep, throaty chuckling. 

I had been standing still in the same spot from where I watched my friend disappear through the bushes. At the sound, I slowly turned around. 

I was standing directly across from a fucking sewer.

It was too dark to see into it, and yes, I was 100% expecting that fucking clown face. But it was too dark. I couldn’t see anything. I still couldn’t hear myself breathing. All I could hear was this terrifying chuckle going on and on. I felt like if I moved something would pounce on me, like I was a rabbit playing statue. 

Now, I’ve mentioned on here before that I was That Asshole Kid who kept having weird paranormal experiences, and this was a lot more intense than I was used to. Like, shit, I’d had panic attacks over way less than this. I literally thought I was about to die.

And then…something in me kind of snapped. 

I don’t know what, exactly- if I was just tired of always being scared by this crap, or if it was some newfound teenage attitude, or just a primal urge of ‘hey I don’t wanna die’, or if the laughter just ignited something in me, but I just…snapped. 

I looked directly into the pitch dark in that sewer, and I said, loudly, over the still ongoing laughter, and more confident than I’ve ever felt in my life, “No. I am absolutely not doing this right now. You don’t actually need to screw with me, you’re doing this for what, fun? Attention? Find it somewhere else. I am not dying right after my thirteenth birthday.” The laughter got louder at that, more obnoxious. It just pissed me off even more. I made myself step off the sidewalk, and got to the middle of the street, still staring into the pitch black sewer and hoped I was making some intimidating eye contact. “What do I need to do for you to leave me the hell alone? You want my soul, or something? You want me to just pledge alliance to you or some bullshit? I will! All Hail This Creep, or whatever you go by! I’ll do what you want if you leave me alone!” 

And…the creepy laughter trailed off for a moment at that. Back to full, unnatural silence for a minute or so, before the disembodied voice let out an intrigued sounding, “Hmm.”

Next thing I know, the sky’s back a full, bright light that’s making me blink back stars from the sudden change, the wind’s blowing all over the place, and I jumped out of the middle of the street to narrowly avoid getting hit by a car that hadn’t been there a literal second ago. I still felt a little watched, but not as intensely as before. Everything seemed to be completely back to normal. I went back home (constantly glancing over my shoulder) and went on with the rest of the day. Went on with the rest of my life.

But, uh…sometimes this whole scene just comes back to me, and I can’t help but wonder about it. 

The Show must go on

((Okay, so @doodledrawsthings got me interested in hell’s au, and then the subject of mortality came to be. Then @kitkat1003 wrote an amazing fic, and well… this happened)) . . . .

Dear Bendy,

I guess it wouldn’t have been long before Joey and I would kick the bucket. Who would have guessed 70 years in the studio would go by so quickly am I right?

Anyway, I guess this is just a bit of a sendoff before Joey and I take our dirt nap. If by some miracle by God you start getting a sick feeling in your stomache, excessive ink overflow, or wanting to lay in bed for all eternity and contemplate your existence, then just think of this as revenge for trying to drown me in ink on that Thursday those years ago.

So yes, surprise! People die for real here. It’s a damn slow, natural thing we do, a thing we can’t control. No one lasts forever in this world no matter how hard we try to make them last. So you’ll probably think, “Henry! You sicko! Why the hell are you so nonchalant about this?!” I won’t say anything or course, because you know, I’ll be dead.

And besides, you always said that I was a sort of moody guy. I guess you finally rubbed off on me after all these years.
But hey boss, chin up, here comes the better part. We may not last forever, but you, Boris, Alice, everyone else, you guys sure will.

Now you’re probably getting mad at Joey for making you this way right? Even I still think he’s insane for doing what he did, but after this experience I have realized some virtues in his work. Bendy, you’re a legacy. The people of this world know that one day they’re all going to die. Some like me and Joey accept it, but keep on hoping. But there are others who know it, but they’ve given up all hope. They forget how to laugh and enjoy their time here because they don’t see the point.

That’s where you and the gang come in. When Me and Joey drew you, we wanted to make you all into someone everyone would love. You’d make them laugh, cry, even get scared when you try to drown them in a flood of ink and suffering (I’m never letting this go, not over my dead body). Because what you do reminds them that despite it all, life can be fun.

Wipe that ink off your face bucko, you’re only halfway through the sentiment.

This is for Boris. In case you’re still wondering who’s a good boy, well, I’ve got the answer buddy. It was you all along.
Keep swinging that clarinet of yours like there’s no tomorrow, because you never know when someone’s gonna need some cheering up from a certain good boy. (It’s still you, you loveable pup) Don’t worry about us okay buddy? We’ll be fine. Just make sure Bendy doesn’t cause too much trouble alright?

Now for Alice, who knows, maybe you will end up as popular as Bendy some day (I said might Bendy, don’t get all huffy). In the meantime, keep those boys in line as much as you can. They need you more than they think they do. And remember to tell Boris to turn off the system after recording, no one likes hearing Wally singing “Dancin’ Queen” acapella.

And finally, we’d like to thank you all for bieng our crew. Thank you for the laughs, the pick-me-ups, the random dances, the naggy critics, even the times you tried to drown us in ink. But most importantly, thank you for bieng our legacy. You made our dreams come true, now go on and make everyone else’s do the same.

Goodbye, kiddo.

Your creators and friends,

Joey and Henry.
