The GIRLS is a Discord server for girl geeks of all stripes to join.
We accept all kinds of female-identified nerds to our ranks, and in general are a welcoming and low-key group.
For those not familiar- Discord is an instant messaging and voice chat app, that is super handy and useful to have. It’s mostly for video gaming, but in our case we’re using it to help different kinds of girl geeks getting together in one place, to discuss all kinds of topics from different fandoms, in a relaxed, safe environment.
(Not much else to say ATM, just that if you’re a girl and a geek, we want you to join. Send an ask to apply- if anonymous, send a link to your reddit or Discord profile, so we can send you the invite link privately!)
(P.S. If it wasn’t clear, we are very much trans-accepting, and if you’re not okay with that, you’re probably not going to want to join anyway)
izuku tutors kirishima after katsuki kicks him out of his room for being stupid.
It’s fine though cause izuku takes the same internship makeup classes as kirishima
because he’s a nerd who ranks 4th in class and likes aizawa’s lessons and is trying to get back in the pro’s good graces.
Cue feels from kirishima to smarty pants izuku.
Bakugou is smart too, but izuku just obviously works hard for it and kirishima thinks that’s manlier than just naturally being great
he’s also better at explaining since he looks at everything from like 17 angles
don’t tell bakugou
izuku is flattered and says he’s used to working hard.
Explains his quirk came a lot later than everyone else’s and spent a long time as quirkless so he’s always had to work harder than everyone to get anywhere.
maybe throw in details of his training regimen before UA entrance exam
some comments about getting the Quirk late meant he learned how to work around the backlashes much later than everyone else too.
Kirishima is shocked! Izuku is flustered and realizes he might have said too much
but then Kirishima goes on about his past and coming to terms with his own Quirk
explains his scar, the self-hate towards his quirk that came with it
how he works hard to not regret his actions as a hero.
Izuku tells him he’s super admirable and definitely will make crimson riot proud. Kirishima goes super red at that only to be doomed when Izuku cites the line
“As long as you got a manly spirit, anybody and everybody can be a hero!"
Kirishima bursts in excitement over izuku knowing crimson riot’s signature line and izuku admits that it helped him during his quirkless phase since he didn’t believe he’s get a quirk, but still wanted to be a hero.
Kirishima smiles at him, a cheeky warm thing that sends the butterflies in Izuku’s stomach into a frenzy. "Well, there’s no need to worry anymore. Do you know why?” A matching grin broke out on Izuku’s face. “Because We Are Here.”
One of my detailed outlines that I want to make into a fic, but can’t seem to get it beyond this stage. Someone please write this for me. It’s so cute in my head and my eyes and soul need it to happen.
so not only is the glyph the floor becomes during the ‘divine reckoning’ of the battle with thordan exactly the same as the patterning on the Round Table itself, but the knights + thordan take the same positions in the summoning as they do at the table.
Quite a few people recently have been asking or speculating about the exact nature of Bondsmagi tattoos. I believe I’ll eventually have a chance for a certain viewpoint character to compare enough of them to make some observations on the page, but for now this stuff has to fall into the realm of what I call “official apocrypha.” You can trust it as coming from the author, for what that’s worth, but it’s not exactly canonized in the text– discussing this in any of the books currently written would have been way too info-dumpy. As you know, kids, I’m not shy about stopping to smell the textual roses, so when I say it’s too info-dumpy, you have been spared some serious irrelevancy.
Anyhow, the trick to Bondsmagi rings is that each mage’s set is slightly different. Many magi prefer the orderly conformity of perfectly straight lines. An equal number appreciate a very slight wave. Quite a few have lines of ornamentation, iconography, or even text in the middle of their black lines. In the end, all that matters is that that black is the dominant color and that the rings are clear/separated in such a manner as to be counted at a glance.
Most magi also have some sort of little visual parlor trick, as Archedama Patience does, relating to their rings. These may be harder to develop than inking or tattooing the rings on; please don’t blow yourselves up.
There are tons of leaks hitting the net this weekend and today. I won’t be sharing any videos of gameplay until the game has been officially released. I have shared a ton of screenshots on my flicker. See them here
