one cast to rule them all

Getting Away With Kidnapping

Context: So after a lengthy discussion, our DM ruled that if a target is charmed, and the charmed effect is ended via the charmed target being attacked, that as long as an Enchantment Wizard was the one who charmed the target, the Enchantment Wizard can include the target forgetting who just attacked them when they use Alter Memories.

Bard: *fails Persuasion check*

Paladin: *fails Intimidate check*

NPC: No! I’m not guiding you all anywhere, and that’s final!

Party (OOC): Well shit. What do we do now?

Wizard (OOC): Guys, I have a plan. Just follow my lead. I cast Charm Person

NPC: Proceeds to guide party where they need to go while charmed.

Party: Proceeds to kill bandits they were after.

Wizard (OOC): Alright guys. Here’s part two of my plan. I whap the NPC with my quarterstaff.

DM: You have successfully whapped the NPC. Your Charm Person ends

Wizard (OOC): So how long has he been with us?

DM: Including when you first found him in town, up till now… 3 hours.

Wizard (OOC): Awesome! I use Alter Memories to make him forget the past 3 hours, including me just whapping him in the head.

DM: And he fails his save. Alright, you all now have a very confused NPC in front of you who doesn’t know who you are, where he is, or why his head hurts. What do you do?

Wizard: Excuse me sir. Are you alright?

Bard: (28 Deception) It seems these men kidnapped you. Looks like you took a pretty good blow to the head. Do you remember anything?

NPC: By the gods! Oh no! These men where my business partners! How did this happen? Why would they do this to me? Thank you so much for saving me!

How was the experience of returning to Hobbiton with your friend Billy Boyd?

 "It’s been at least 10 years, maybe 11 or 12 years, since Billy and I were both back in New Zealand together? We’ve been there individually but not at the same time.

It was great, because we were able to go to Mata Mata, where the Shire is, so Bag End, the Green Dragon where the hobbits drink, so what we were able to do was sneak into the Green Dragon and not tell the tourists we were there, and then we opened the Green Dragon to the tourists. And then when they went inside, we opened the pub up and they asked “What are you doing here?” and Billy replied back “we stay here when we’re not working! We’ve rooms above the pub.” And I mean, there were a few people who were quite emotional about it, it was great, we served them all ginger beer and served the adults ale.“

“Vig used to call me ‘elf boy’ and I’d call him ‘filthy human’. As an elf, I never got a scratch on me, never got dirty. And Vig would come out with blood and sweat all over him. And he’d say to me “Oh, go manicure your nails” Orlando Bloom

tucker & dale and the instigation of internet mob culture

Re-watching Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (the parody movie where the rednecks in the woods are the hapless protagonists and its the bunch of paranoid college kids causing all the problems.)

I’d forgotten how much the situation was escalated by the one teenager who was clearly looking for an excuse to hurt people.  The college kid that, at the beginning of the movie, explicitly declares himself a better person than those around him.

Chad.

He’s the one who tells his friends “what’s really going on here is worse than you think.” He’s the one who insists they handle it themselves and not through official channels. He’s the one who casts his opponents as “pure evil” and says “we finally have a chance to fight back without rules.” When some of the other teenagers express uncertainty he’s the one that says if they can’t handle what needs to be done, maybe they deserve to die, too.

“We have to burn this place to the ground.  Destroy it completely. You have no IDEA what this is all about, do you Allison? These freaks are evil. And they deserve everything that’s coming to them.”

I’d never realized before how closely every single plot point in the movie mirrors the way mob culture instigators will rile up the masses under the guise of “social justice”:

  1. You assume bad faith in your opponents.
  2. You declare your opponents subhuman and acceptable to hurt by any means.
  3. You discourage the use of peaceful or official methods to address the issue.
  4. You keep your followers in line through fear of the “other” and threats of ousting them into that group if they become “contaminated.”
  5. You revel in as much chaos and pain as you can inflict–

–after all, you’re the good guy.

Everyone needs to be like the Lord of the Rings cast

And the Hobbit cast

because the hetero cast members’ immediate reactions to their gay cast mates is basically

  • hell yeah let’s go to a gay bar I’ve never been but let’s go have fun
  • let’s be fab together look at this material you look gorgeous darling
  • You look like an absolute queen darling
  • I have some gossip for you~
  • come on give us a kiss MWAH

I just LOVE how the lotr cast became a family and i think I’ll never stop talking about it . I mean, do you guys know the video of Elijah giving an interview about his show Wilfred at comic con? The Interviewer asks him about family and home and he starts talking and so on, but then he just stares at something/someone behind the camera and he’s like: “Oh shit, hang on, SPEAKING OF FAMILY.” And he runs to hug Dom. I just…the reflex of calling Dom FAMILY is just…argh ❤
One cast ro rule them all.

Batfam + J at Disneyland

- they kinda have to go in disguise as Bruce is mildly famous and J is a literal wanted mass murderer

- J is Very Bitter about the fake tan and brown hair dye his bf makes him use

- Dick is such a mother hen he makes everyone wear super strong sunblock - especially J because “joker youre so pale and you dont wanna get sunburnt”

- Bruce makes Dick, Jason, and Dami stick together and text him every twenty minutes for safety

- Jason breaks every rule; ditches the large sunglasses and hat bruce gave him, refuses to wear sunblock, leaves dick&dami literally the minute bruce isnt watching, and turns up at the hotel room at 3 am

- Joker enjoys jump scaring cast members but stops when bruce threatens to not but him any more cotton candy

- Bruce is really bad at rollercoasters, so naturally J makes him ride each one at least twice

- the group all go on the tower of terror together; damian h a t e s it but J makes them ride it three times in a row

- Alfred face times them so Bruce knows Gotham is safe and Dami can see Batcow

- (gotham most definately isnt safe thanks to ivy and harley but J and Alfred agreed that Bruce needed a holiday and the clown will deal with the issue when they all get home)

The Forgotten King

-This is kind of like a fic, but not exactly written with the intention to be one, but please still read and enjoy! This is written with Jeremy as the main character, but has very light Joelay elements- 

-To summarize this plot, There are five immortal kings, but Jeremy, a scholar in the domain of King Ryan, finds ancient texts that talk about a sixth king – The king of Thorns. He sets off on a quest to find more information, if not the king himself (because after all, how do you kill an immortal?) and in the process ends up becoming the new sixth king himself-

—–

The five immortal kings ruled all of the land. Powerful beings that could crush the world in two, yet looked just like another person. The only thing that gave them away was the thrones they sat on and the look in their eyes that had seen the centuries. Despite their strength, they do not consider themselves gods.
