As a joke I suggested to Marvel that I should go to a high school undercover, and it was completely a joke and Marvel took it completely seriously…I guess they didn’t get my British sarcasm. So the next thing I knew I had a backpack with a pencil case on my way to Bronx School of Science ⏤ I had one funny experience, I was sat at the back of a classroom next to quite a pretty girl, and eventually she was like, “So dude what’s your deal, man?” And I was like, “Do you want to know my secret? I’m actually Spider-Man.” And she was like, “Dude, you’re nuts, man. You are nuts.” I was like, “No, seriously, I’m actually an actor, I’m British and I’m playing Spider-Man.” And she didn’t believe me.

Dragons are British

So i think you might like to hear what draconic langue in my game so my two players that are dragon borns got in a cussing match but the actual players use British slang and gestures so now the draconic langue is now British insults and hand gestures

For example the two were fighting over how to fight a boss
Gold (in common) im tired of ur shit man
Silver(in common) yea but at least im using my brain
Our cleric starts to get uncomfortable and looks like they are gonna cry
Gold(in common) lets use our native tongue to finish this
Silver(in draconic) OI FINE MATE ILL BASH YE HEAD IN I SWER ON ME MUM
Gold(in draconic) oi mate ya fukn wanker at lest shes not a gerbil and my father dosent smell of elderberrys (flips off silver)

Yea so this is what our game is now

Could i request hc's for Kirishima, Bakugou, Todoroki and Monoma with a normally sweet and kind s/o who didn't have enough time for coffee that morning and now someone was trying to start sh*t with them and all of a sudden all hell broke loose. How would the boys react?

I actually only take 3 people per request. I’ll let it slide this time seeing as I don’t write enough for Monoma but in the future please only 3 peeps per request, kay?

This is gonna be fun ;)

Kirishima Eijirou

  • He’d be as terrified as the person his s/o is currently chewing out is. He’s never seen this side of his s/o and it’s defintely a shocking discovery.
  • That being said, it is pretty hot now that he thinks about it. Who would’ve thought that his sweet, little s/o could be such a spitfire.
  • He considered going in to break up the heated argument his s/o was currently engaged in but thought better of it. He chose life.

Bakugou Katsuki

  • Proud af tbh. He didn’t think his s/o had it in them.
  • He credits himself to just how many curse words his s/o is spouting out to the other person but he doesn’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
  • Bakugou would just sit back and enjoy the show, making no efforts to break it up. This is the most exciting thing that’s happened all week. In fact, he may even join in at points.
  • Makes a mental note to limit his s/o’s coffee intake if he ever wanted to see this again.

Todoroki Shouto

  • He’s shocked into silence when he first sees it, unsure of what he should do. This isn’t normal behaviour for his s/o which means he won’t be able to predict what they’ll do.
  • Decides to try the calm approach and gently removes his s/o from the situation before things get too heated.
  • Reminds himself to always have coffee on standby for moments like these.

Monoma Neito

  • There would be a moment of shock and confusion but once that settled he’d be back to his usual self.
  • “You see that? My s/o could kick your s/o’s ass.”
  • Marvels at his s/o’s…colourful language.
  • Laughs hysterically afterwards when he finds out that his s/o’s outburst could be credited to the fact that they hadn’t had their morning cup of coffee.
  • Instantly regretting that laughter once he sees his s/o’s death stare.

Leone Jacovacci (1902 - 1983) was an Italian boxing champion. Born to an Italian father and a Congolese mother, this Afro-Italian tried to hide his identity by posing as an Indian from Calcutta, an American named “Jack Walker” and actually became a British subject under the name “John Douglas Walker” in an attempt to counter the racism levelled at him.

Although the premier boxer in the nation, he was of course never fully accepted by Mussolini’s fascist government. Injuries put an end to his boxing career and after the war, he worked for the newly formed UN assisting refugees in Italy. He later did some acting but ended his days as a janitor, dying of heart disease in 1983.

The British Invasion/Good Grief

So, what’s comforting is that even Buckleming, who apparently don’t understand these characters at all and only have a limited grasp of how pacing and plotting work, can do only so much to keep Dean and Cas away from each other. Because here we have it again - it’s Dean calling Cas, it’s Dean worrying about Cas, it’s Dean who keeps leaving voicemails even when Cas’ ignoring him, and it’s Dean who gets paired off with Cas as soon as there’s some pairing off going on - look at that final scene - Sam clearly spent some of the night, or the morning, talking with Eileen (and, subtextually, maybe something more, since he’s clearly been learning some sign language and Dean apparently did his best to leave them alone - so much so Eileen left without saying goodbye), and when Dean asks about her, Sam’s immediate reaction is, And what about Cas? and that’s simply the done thing and neither time nor tide nor bad writing can do anything against it.

As for the rest of it - Jesus. My watching notes are mostly exclamation points, angry emojis, a string of what? and one come on.

Because, really. I don’t even know where to start. Just off the top of my head: Crowley can be overconfident, yes, but he’s not an idiot; the UK doesn’t work like that at all; women are generally not happy when carrying a demon baby and generally know birthing said demon baby will have dire consequences (I mean, it’s 2017 - who hasn’t seen Rosemary’s Baby?); Sam and Dean confiding in ‘every hunter they know’ and asking for help when confronted with yet another shitstorm of epic proportions is not normal - it’s freaking new and very significant, so what the fuck are you doing just mentioning in in casual conversation? And even Mick, for all his faults, deserved better. Honestly, I’m just this close to start a crowdfunding to get both those idiots a severance package - it’s not like you have to be a screenwriter, for fuck’s sake - just - I don’t know - keep bees - learn yoga - travel to New Zealand - I don’t even - ugh. 

(Shoo.)

I’m not sure what else there is to say about this episode. The Code is a bullshit idea and it doesn’t hold up, because, like, Nazi Extra n. 27 just ordered Ketch to kill both Sam and Dean, and they’re technically Men of Letters, so what is poor old Arthur supposed to do? Execute them, and then turn the gun on himself? And what was Toni’s punishment for burning half of Sam’s skin off, then? Also, you don’t really find orphans off the streets in England anymore, and it’s slightly difficult to turn them into super ninja assassins without anyone noticing (what about Timothy’s family?). And no, it doesn’t make any logical sense to exterminate every single hunter in America, and neither it makes sense to expect they’d obey every single order you give them. That’s not how you build your make-believe Nazi state - if you want to see how it’s actually done, just have a look around, for God’s sake - every other show is writing and tinkering with its own ‘the end is nigh’ plot simply by reading the bloody papers, why can’t you? And finally, yeah, upper class English people are generally annoying and they do dress in tweed from time to time, but not all of them - *channels Saint John Oliver’s spirit* -

The thing is, the difficult bit about storytelling (or, one of them) is that stories don’t work without problems or obstacles of some kind, but you also want your characters to be believable and behave like real people do, so you’ve got to find this fine balance between creating drama and not being transparent about it. Like, how many people realized Mick was going to die just from the damn promo? And, as a result, how many actually cared? His backstory was absurd, illogical, and a bad choice all around. Sam said Mick felt bad for killing that werewolf girl - good - show me. There’s your conflict, and there’s your canon-compliant and believable reason to make me care about Mick. No need to invent any of this Lord of the Flies nonsense.

(I did like the fact Ketch used the same lines on Mary as he used on Dean, though, even if that brings the total of queer-coded villains up to - all of them? - including stammering and blushing demon guy and, of course, Lucifer himself.)
