can you explain me why you (and apparently everyone) don't want orion back? i'm genuinely curious
he was a notorious metagamer (using information he didn’t have as tibs while in-character) who lied about dice rolls (which cr stats has confirmed that a lot of his rolls didn’t add up + matt straight up said on reddit at one point that orion cheated w/ dice rolls + you can even see marisha and tal leaning over to check on his rolls at the end)
in addition to that, he just… was kind of a shitty player in general when it comes to player etiquette? his last episode was unwatchable for a lot of people because he hogged time for one-on-one shopping that was for a project that was so unrealistic that even MATT was getting sick of, and the other players were uncomfortable too. he also tried to circumvent percy’s entire personal arc by trying to form an army from his father, which is just… shitty for tal AND matt on top of not being something he’d logically be able to do.
on that note, he had a tendency to step all over other players in general? like the time vex shot an arrow to hit a button and it was successful but he made sure to say that he used magic to make it go in so he got credit? and him bamfing out of the kvarn fight and being pissed off at matt because he was convinced matt was specifically trying to kill him lol.
there was also the time he blew up at a fan shortly before his last episode because the fan made a tshirt (i think?) with tibs on it and he got offended bc tibs is his ‘property’ and he told the fan he was “#uncrittered” and laura and travis stepped in to tell the fan that he was perfectly fine and that he did nothing wrong
there are other things that added up, but those are the big reasons why i dont like him, never want him back on cr, and why watching older episodes with him in it is often hard for me lmao
edit: the crstats bit was misinformation i heard from somebody else so that’s my bad y’all. the rest still stands.
If I had to have a stripper name, it would be Equality.
I think you've got several options. They're all terrible... but you have them.
Guys love it when you can show them you're better than they are at something they love.
If you ever speak to me in Spanish, please use the formal “usted.”
Not to worry. I have a permit. *hands them a a piece of paper saying "I can do what I want"
Guys, can you please shut up? I can't hear myself not talking to Mare.
It's fine. It's just that life is pointless and nothing matters and I'm always tired.
My instinct is to be mean to you.
I am big enough to admit that I am often inspired by myself.
I have never taken the high road. But I tell other people to because then there's more room for me on the low road.
Horizons are dumb. Never broaden your horizons.
I would like to be king someday, so no, I've not smoked marijuana. I ate a brownie once at a party in college. It was intense. It was kind of indescribable, actually. I felt like I was floating. Turns out there wasn't any pot in the brownie. It was just an insanely good brownie.
I passed up a gay Halloween party to be here. Do you know how fun gay Halloween parties are?
Never thought I could do this in time, but here it is again, my Weekly Reading List. Thanks to some holidays I had a lot of time to read and clear my likings, so there is a long list of good fanfiction I want to recommend you warmly. But I think it’s a good compensation to next time. Gonna spent some days in Rome next week, so I won’t have a lot time to read and my next list maybe will be short. But we will see ;) Well, like I told you a while ago, I am addicted to Leonard McCoy, maybe even Karl Urban after all, since there are a few stories about other characters he played. It’s definitely not on purpose to read Bones x reader mostly, they just pop up on my dashboard like snowflakes. But that’s nothing I should complain about :) So I hope you gonna enjoy the list below like I did. Have Fun!!!
Who wants to talk about polymachina soulmate marks? I’m a sucker for fics with soulmate marks, especially ones where people get more than one, and like there’s so many ways to spin in like, does the symbol represent the person? Is it their name? Is it the first thing they say to them?
All the options are great, okay. I’ve seen the first two a bunch and I love them, but let me submit for consideration:
Vax with a big ‘NO’ on his back, just over his heart (it shouldn’t surprise anyone that it’s one of the first things to come out of his sister’s mouth)
Vex with ‘Mine’ written in the same spot in the same deep navy blue color (no one’s surprised, twins are often platonic soulmates, and it’s clear Vex and Vax are two halves of a whole)
But they have other words too
There’s a rich purple ‘well hello to you too’ running down Vax’s side (and somehow when Gilmore says it, it sounds exactly the way he always thought it would)
What makes less sense is the great gray handprint on his lower back and the magenta music notes curling around his arm
(It makes sense when Grog introduces himself with a smack to the chest that knocks Vax off his feet and Scanlan does so with a wordless melody)
The ‘oh, um, hi’ on the inside of his his left arm makes perfect sense when he meets Keyleth (what’s weird is the matching words they both share on the inside of the right that they don’t recognize until they meet Kashaw)
Vex and Vax share the same golden word running down their spine and Pike has their greetings wrapped around her wrists
Grog’s not sure what to make of his until he meets Pike. Goliath’s typically have imprints of hands, not words (she first reads out her own words that stretch across Grog’s shoulders almost like wings)
She laughs gently as she reads out ‘well aren’t you a big fella’ and ‘please don’t step on me’
He tries to sound out her words when Pike lets him see them. He does alright with the big ‘I’m so sorry’ on her shoulder (the ‘hello gorgeous’ on her right leg gives him a bit more trouble)
Sometimes he wishes his were words too, but that fades when he finds just where his hand fits (on Vax’s back, Vex’s waist, Keyleth’s shoulder, Percy’s leg, Scanlan’s ass)
Pike’s always liked the big gray hand that covers one of her own, it’s her favorite (the neat scrawl in celestial on the side of her neck is a close second)
It’s a shock to Percy that he seems to be covered in words, a ‘hey there handsome’ across his lower back and a matching ‘are you alright, darling’ over his chest, and a long rambling string of words in red that covers most of his back
He’s never sure just when the words on his back turned gray, but he notices when the matching red on Keyleth’s arm fades just the same
Keyleth loves her words, they’re a rainbow on her skin (the deep gray handprint and dark brown words on her right arm give her pause, but she comes to love them just the same)
Her fingers like to trace the golden greeting on her clavicle and the ‘you poor dear’ on the back of her hand in vibrant teal
She used to love the bright, almost glittering ramble that ran down her arms (it feels like a part of her rips away when the letters fade and grow dull)
But it hurts less after a while, the words become a sad memory, but at least she always has a piece of him on her skin. If she closes her eyes, she can almost hear the wind whisper the words to her
I just really like these kinds of aus, might do more like this later. But I would also love to see what other people prefer in terms of what the marks are. I’ve seen a bunch of fics with this au and they’ve all been amazing, and I think there’s always room for more!
lately i've been thinking a lot about an au where julius escapes & joins vox machina instead of percy. it's a fic i'm never going to write, but it made me wonder if in that au tiberius would live. because, well, stubborn bookish glasses-wearing nerd with questionable social skills and what seem to be v similar issues to percy's re fathers - i think julius would latch on and refuse to let him just leave. idk if this is a thought you will appreciate at all but i'm sad about it and wanted to share.
what the fuck, man. why would you. why would you do that. to me and also to Julius de Rolo. Because it’s not just Tibs, you realize, reminding him of Percy. There are small ones, albeit gnomes rather than younger siblings, and there are twins (though I do headcanon Vex most similar to Vesper), and there’s almost the right number of people, even - and the differences don’t matter, not one whit, except to make the absences hurt worse. We don’t know much about Julius de Rolo aside from his favorite brothel, but we can safely assume he’d spent his whole life corralling half a dozen younger siblings, and meant to keep it up: keeping them in line and keeping them safe, in equal measure. His family and his city - his city, the heir, future Lord de Rolo of Whitestone - and he completely failed. His baby sister got him out, for fuck’s sake, and then he left her to die in the snow, has never even gone back. What the fuck kind of eldest brother does that? Though also: I like to imagine him as a paladin of Pelor, and I wonder if, in these circumstances, he’d take mostly levels in Fighter instead. Because also: what the fuck sort of god abandons his charges like that? What are either of them worth. Yesss, give me bitter, brokenhearted Julius who doesn’t think he’s worth anything as a leader but steps into the role whenever he isn’t thinking about it because he was raised for this, and who looks after the rest of Vox Machina fiercely because they’re all a substitute, a second chance, for/at the family and people he abandoned.
We tried Tibs's spell with Allura's advice and it worked. Really well!!
We apologize if the mail raven is very tired when it arrives, but
we're sending Allura's instructions for the image capture and the image
transfer spells. We're going to send you as many of these as we can so
you'd better do the same!!
xoxo Kiki + Vax
i've only watched a handful of episodes so far but I don't like tiberius that much? he's an okay character it's just some of his actions feel about godmoddy to me
oh boy. yeah tibs is, mmmmm, polarizing? orion’s a hard player to watch.
if you don’t mind spoilers, I recommend checking out @percyvex‘s meta about tibs/orion here cause it lays out the various issues with the player/character. if you do mind spoilers, it’s not just you, don’t worry
ngl one of the more minor things that shaped how i viewed tibs was how he didn’t even care enough about percy to go down with the others and check on an obviously distraught and upset percy trying to deal with resurfacing trauma? like tibs was literally the only person in the party who didn’t go down to percy’s workshop to check on him and learn what happened to him.
and a lot of that was obviously orion reaching Peak Awful, but it’s sort of inseparable from the character himself - especially considerring his later disregard for percy’s personal arc by trying to make it all about him saving the day and his previous actions involving tiberius not being a team player at all and leaving his friends to die/taking credit for their feats
"I could go on for hours about domestic McCree" please do that 💕💕💕
MORE DOMESTIC MCCREE HERE WE GO.
P.S - Pardon how long this post is. I love McCree too darn much. I clearly imagine these things every second of my life <3
When you are in a rush for work or an outing first thing in the morning, McCree will swiftly make toast and eggs that are almost always slightly burnt.
Back and shoulder massages when his S/O is exhausted from a day of work.
This cowboy when asked to clean the house he will make the place looking sparkling. Often times he goes overboard with it and will stop his S/O from moving one step on the floor when he knows that the floors are fully dried.
Despite his cleaning habits, he HATES doing the laundry. He just refuses to clean the clothes and fold them. Especially the folding, the man can’t fold anything for the life of him.
Always forgets what to buy at the grocery store so a written list is a must if he is going to have a successful trip.
This guy snores a bit in his sleep and has the tendency of hugging/cuddling the blanket.
Insists that all windows in the place has to be open. You will have to fight him to close the darn window in the Fall when the living room feels like a walk in freezer.
Likes his coffee dark with just a little bit of milk to balance out the bitterness.
Sings in the shower every morning! This man has a beautiful voice and is always singing a new song he heard on the radio.
Has a massive collection of colourful serape’s but always chooses the same one. EVEN WHEN HE ASKS HIS S/O OPINION HE JUST SHRUGS AND PICKS THE RED ONE.
McCree adopts a fat brown cat and names him Tibs.
Every Sunday morning McCree likes to take his S/O to the farmers market and buy some local food to makes some delicious meals and apple pie.
Did I ever say how much he loves apple pie? Cause he is obsessed with them. The smell and taste is so good.
He was never into scented candles before but damn when he actually took the time to smell the candles, he buys them all.
The house always smells like apple cinnamon or pine candles.
Is so bad at taking care of real plants so he buys fake ones or succulents
On chilly mornings, McCree will drag the blanket around the house like its a cape. He always has to be so dramatic about it tbh.
McCree loves Saturdays as he can spend the day playing some country music on the TV and cuddling with his S/O all day on the couch under a blanket.
Takes the longest to get his hair ready and prepped for the day. McCree is very picky how he wants his hairline to part.
If McCree hasn’t gotten his hair trimmed in a few months, expect him to walk around the place with his hair tied back in a small ponytail.
Will have horrible bedhead to the point that he has to wash it in the morning. A Brush will do no good against that tangled mess.
After a shower, McCree will walk around the house in jeans and zero shirt on. Damn it's very distracting for his S/o who can’t even focus on eating their food.
Afternoon naps with his cat lying on his stomach is a sight his S/O almost every day.
If you ever want any more domestic headcanons with a particular Overwatch hero, by all means, let me know!
