Context: My team and I were fighting a Flameskull and nearly had two team wipeouts. What saved us was the box aiding us and the fact my Tiefling Bard had fire resistance. So we managed to defeat it. After trying(and failing) to pry the emerald out from the eye sockets I just said “fuck it” and threw it into a sack I had. We took a long rest but then our DM had us rewind before we went to open a door.
DM: Okay, so everybody is starting to fall asleep. Hymn, you are about to doze off when you feel hot flames from the sack you put the flameskull in.
DM: The flameskull floats up, glaring at you. You notice its flames aren’t as powerful as earlier, indicating it’s tired.
Me(ic): Uh…heeey. So…look, I’m sorry about that whole mess back there. But listen, we’re tired, you’re tired. Neither of us want to do this all over again. You can go and do your own thing, and we’ll leave you alone. We’ll stay out of your….fire.
DM: Roll diplomacy.
Me: -rolls 17- OH THANK GOD.
DM: The skull looks at you and contemplates, floating off and out of the room. The rest of the party wakes up in time to see this.
Dukat our Fighter: Uh…what just happened?
Me(ic): I…I’ll explain later. Just try not to attack that thing if we see it again.
Oof, I’m a whole day late, but happy belated birthday to @han-leia ! My time perception’s been super off since I got back from Japan, but I hope you like it! Hope you had a great day yesterday. /o\ I wanted to draw the whole comic for your mini-fic but I didn’t have time. ;w; So here’s a doodle!
It’s finally here, Louis Tomlinson fans! We finally got new Louis music, and it’s even better than I could have imagined. Hitting the world promptly at midnight in every time zone on Friday, “Back to You,” Louis’s collaboration with Bebe Rexha, has burrowed into our earholes and isn’t going anywhere any time soon. And to add icing to the Louis-shaped cake, he also dropped the official video today, so it’s a full sensory experience.
This debut single, from Louis’s as-yet-unnamed solo album coming (hopefully) later this year, follows Louis’s last solo effort, “Just Hold On” with Steve Aoki. This new track is bound to be a jam for the Summer, at least on my radio, with its lilting beat and catchy chorus.
Get ready, fam, because our group of Louis fans is about to get bigger as we watch our favorite lad take over the air waves and show the world what a talented musician he is. Not that any of us needs any convincing to look at some beautiful GIFs of Louis’s face, but here are some anyway, as well as the music video.
1. It has a sick beat
Louis promised us a bop, and he delivered. The beat is slower than I expected, but it makes you want to have a sweaty Summer dance party.
2. It’s going to make you excited for Louis’s debut album
Unfortunately, we have to wait MONTHS for Louis’s solo album, but between “Just Hold On” with Steve Aoki and this track, we’re getting a taste of what solo Louis might sound like. I don’t know about y'all, but I am pumped.
3. Louis and Bebe both shine vocally
One of my favorite things about Louis is that he’s brilliant at writing music that’s great for his voice. He also managed to write something that suits Bebe perfectly and really lets her vibrato shine.
4. You’ll connect with the lyrics
The song is all about having that relationship that’s maybe not the best one for you, and you know what? We’ve all been there. It might not be a good time in your life, but you’ll listen to this song and think, “Holy sh*t, that’s me.”
5. The production is fire
Digital Farm Animals and The Dream Life produced the track and gave it the insane sound that’s going to be stuck in your head all Summer.
6. The video is damn adorable
Louis took Bebe back to his home of Doncaster, England, to film the video, and he even included cameos from his friends and one of his sisters. The two go around town — mostly the Doncaster Rovers soccer pitch — and play off each other, which is maybe the cutest thing I’ve seen all day.
honestly all of my childhood hero kristi yamaguchi’s (as scott hamilton would say: “fall down, get up, and smile like kristi yamaguchi), but i’m gonna list her 1992 winning olympic freeskate because it’s a fandango and who doesn’t love that??
i’m gonna be honest with you: i actually tend to find women’s singles boring. there’s too much of the same thing, too much influence from the likes of michelle kwan and sasha cohen: the judges like tiny bendy girls, instead of girls who may actually be the better skaters. that’s why i’m really excited about elizaveta tuktamysheva, who is just super weird and spunky, and this free program of hers in particular, “sandstorm”
they may not jump, but these days, ice dancers are the best skaters in the world. that wasn’t always the case - they used to be really good at posing and not much else. the team who did the most to see that changed that is shae-lynn bourne and victor kraatz, who were often too ahead of their time to ever get the medal recognition they deserved. they did, however, give us one of the most famous figure skating programs of all time: their iconic riverdance free dance
torvill & dean are probably the team that started the change, and their “bolero” is still famous
johnny weir: “poker face” (OBVIOUSLY… what an ICON), “creep” (this is new, and so beautiful), “i put a spell on you” (NERD; also like basically every us figure skater of the last 20 years is in this program?)
brian orser and josee chouinard: “brian’s hat” (honestly just so charming… also, somewhere in my stepmother’s house there is a newspaper clipping with a picture of me sitting on brian orser’s lap, taken the same night i first saw this performed)
and i will leave you with this, the most important program of all time, performed by evgeni plushenko:
