Context: Since the party was pretty excited when Volos Guide to Monsters came out, a few of us are playing races from it for our new campaign, including myself (a Tabaxi, which is basically a catfolk/khajit) and my roommate (a Kenku, which is basically a bird person, and has the ability to perfectly mimic any sound). Running joke is that we’re doing a furry campaign. What I didn’t know before I’d made my character is that our Human Fighter absolutely adores cats (due to backstory reasons of never being allowed to have a pet as the child of a noble, and not even seeing a cat in person until he was an adult), and collects rocks that look like cats. And so, we met.
Human Fighter: I try to scratch him behind the ears!
Tabaxi Rogue: “Stop that!”
Kenku Cleric: Alright, so as he’s trying to pet him, I mimic the sound of a cat purring.
DM: Fighter, roll perception to see if you know that the Kenku’s fucking with you.
Fighter: [rolls a 4]
Tabaxi Rogue: “I’ll have you know that I do not enjoy being patronized, and if you don’t move your hand I’ll have to use force!”
Human Fighter: “Aw, but you’re obviously enjoying it!”
people are honestly still debating whether victor kissed yuuri or not, but let’s be real even if they added some tongue action people would still be saying “oh nah it was an accident his tongue accidentally fell into his mouth.”
The college AU that nobody asked for but that @tokugawalady and I created and love anyway. This is and will be an Ieyasu x MC fic.
I hope you enjoy!

“You. Cannot. Be. Serious.” He shook his head, almost unable to process what
of his clothes, from the clean clothes he laid on the floor last night to his
pile of dirty laundry, they all had holes in them. Not just holes, they had
been chewed to shreds.

closed it before he had gone to sleep? A trickle of anxiety flowed through his veins, he had a feeling he knew what had happened.

clothes-ruining culprit. His eyes widened. No, there was no way.

She hissed, taking the paper back. “It’s the Manager! He’s a creep. I turned

Hideyoshi, Mitsunari, and Hanbei in your two-bedroom apartment? No offense but I
think I like the library idea better.” MC laughed, shaking her head. “I do
appreciate it though.” She glanced at her phone, eyes widening.
“We’re going to be late for class!”
do you think you’re going?” The familiar cheerfully cold voice chilled
Toramatsu to the bone.

anywhere but the eyes of his roommates.

leaves of one of the many pieces of his ‘special’ indoor garden.

tried to ignore his line of thought. “Seriously, I’m packed, I found another

floppy eared rabbit that single-handedly put him in pajamas.

hopped closer, wary of its sharp teeth. That little beast was barely a pet, it
was just as threatening as a fierce guard dog. Over his almost six months living here, he had
seen it send three separate people to the ER.

course, if you break the lease like this, I will have to pursue legal action.” Ieyasu shrugged, noting how Toramatsu froze at his words. “But, I’m a generous person, as you know.” He was smiling again, in that way that seemed to make the room 20 degrees colder, a smirk in his voice. “So if you can find someone to take your
place in the next few hours, then I won’t say anything about you being such a
dismal roommate and I won’t contact my attorney”
Toramatsu!” MC shouted, jogging up to him in the hallway outside of their
lecture hall. “Are you okay?” She looked concerned, but he really didn’t have
time. He had to find a replacement.
No I’m fine.” He replied, a flustered tone to his voice. “Do I not look fine?”

to his pajama ensemble, a blush on his face.

so that is less exciting but-“
Toramatsu turned to her, wide eyed. Oh
no, he shouldn’t do what he was about to do, but…but, he needed to. He needed
to get out of there. “Do you need a place to stay?”
“Y-Yeah.” MC gasped, stopping in her tracks. “Do you have a place? I mean, is your old place available?”

paper at her. “Be there at 6 pm tonight and I guarantee you’ll have a place to

MC recognized that name, Tokugawa Ieyasu. He was a senior, pre-pharm. His

Yeah I’ll be there.”

Shit, MC thought to herself, I have made a huge mistake.

So my blood work came back with a red flag on my inflammation levels, which are more than double the normal range. My doc is sending me to hematologist (blood specialist) to run more tests, but right now likely contenders are lupus, cancer, or an autoimmune disease…. Yay?
Meanwhile I’m still drawing and writing and having a grand time in life, with the tiny setback of feeling like an exhausted sack of crap sometimes. But I still have all my limbs and my cat, so I’m okay for now. Here is a picture of Bunny sitting on my butt.
You sighed to yourself, another party, another drink,
another night gone to waste. You had so many better things to do, hell you
would prefer sitting on the couch all night watching paint dry to being
surrounded by sweaty teenagers who can’t dance.
It was fun at first, the first few parties were exciting,
the drinking, grinding up on random people, the games but it soon got tiring
and repetitive. Now you just went to keep with the reputation.
You were seated next to a couple, they were ferociously
making out. In fact it looked like the boy was trying to eat her instead of
kiss her and to be quite honest you were disgusted, there was a boy with blonde
hair sitting on the other side of the couch as well. His head was knocked back
onto the top of the couch and seemed like he was sleeping. You snorted, sure he
had drank too much and was passed out.
… But Reigen is like your weird-ass uncle you see once in a while in reunions that will come up to you and say ‘hey kid do you wanna know what happens when I press the gps button on my phone’ and ur like 'uncle reigen no’ but too late he pressed it now you’re inside a secret base in the middle of the night there are craters are everywhere you see evil spirits salt decorates everything and thete are four grown-ass men who can wield swords and cast magic and shit crying hysterically as your uncle roasts the living fuck out of them after a few explosions out of nowhere he dropkicks one guy and punches the other and there goes a car oh my god how did this happen
So we could say that after that date, that conversation and that kiss that Malec are 100% officially dating now right? So thats why Magnus is set to know Max, how do you think Maryse is going to react? She was livid after them kissing at the wedding
It’s more between the lines but yes, when you take into account that Alec’s telling Magnus after their kiss that “relationship take effort” and Magnus’s replying with “I’m all for effort”, it is pretty obvious that they know what this implies. That they both are in it. And that they both want to make this relationship work. Gawd, I just love this scene so much.
Anyway, I have to say that I was really surprised when I first read the summary of episode 2x08 where it says that Alec wants his family to get to know Magnus. Then again, the fact that Alec AND Magnus are throwing this party together at Magnus’ loft with other shadowhunters and Alec’s mother around, had me pretty much shook. Especially when you think about Maryse’s reaction when Alec kissed Magnus in front of his family and the Clave. She was not thrilled, to put it nicely. Of all the people, a downworlder? Magnus Bane? And now she “agrees” that Alec and Magnus throw that party at their home at Magnus’ loft and not in Idris or the institute? Wow.
I mean I totally understand that Alec wants his mother and Magnus to get to know each other and be nice and civil towards each other. His future husband (seriously how married are they already, jeez!) and his mother. It’s understandable, I get it. Though I am still here sitting and being like…. is this even real???
So, I am really curious how this all plays out in the end. I don’t think Maryse will cause a scene on this important day of her youngest son. And Magnus would probably do everything for Alec that this would work out between him and Alec’s family. But I dunno…this whole thing is very strange to begin with, especially after everything that happened in episode 1x12.
