pushing drugs

anonymous asked:

Even as godtiers, the kids still have wisdom teeth... which means one of these kids gets the post-removal anesthetic babbling and direct honesty that they usually can't ever do with each other

That’s really, really sweet and I love it but also consider: The Homestuck Kids but as Actual People I sedated/brought up from sedation while working for an oral surgeon.

JOHN: The teenaged boy that took two Halcions at once and was like “Whoa… this is a weird high.” in front of his dad.

ROSE: Definitely one of the redheaded girls whose eyes snap open in the middle of surgery and just stare blankly up at you as you monitor her breathing. Did you know redheads have difficulty with sedation? Scared the shit out of me my first half-dozen times pushing drugs on redheads. 0/10 experience will haunt my nightmares.

DAVE: One of the dozens of teenagers who can’t, for the life of them, stop mumbling. Sir, please, we are trying to remove your teeth without puncturing the fat buckle in your cheek. You are heavily sedated. You can sleep! Please, please just go the fuck to sleep.

JADE: Perfect, flawless, beautiful patient that is a dream on the op table. The kind of patient that’s never done a Single Drug before and took ¼ a Halcion for her surgery and was passed out before we even brought her in from the waiting room. God bless.

JANE: Looks adorable with cotton stuffed in her mouth. Came up from anesthesia asking for a direct checklist+dos and donts for post-surgery care. Probably called the doctor a few times after surgery worried about minor things but left a nice review online.

DIRK: The guy that wanted to drive himself home from surgery after popping two Halcions. Alright, badass. You’re legally intoxicated for 24 hours. You can’t operate a coin ride at Wal-Mart much less a fucking car.

ROXY: Definitely the girl with 16 layers of nail polish on that the pulse monitor can’t read through. Responded “Is weed okay? Is it going to fuck up my anesthesia? I smoke a lot of weed.” when asked if she’s taken any recent medication.

JAKE: Gets a viral video with his bizarre post-anesthesia wordspill his friends are oh-so-sure to record.

Let’s Talk About ADHD

Of all the mental disorders out there, none is taken less seriously than ADHD. Lots of people believe that it’s made up. Some people believe that ADHD is nothing more than bad parenting. And plenty of people believe that it’s an excuse to medicate otherwise normal children. But here’s the thing:

ADHD is a very real disorder, and it profoundly affects the lives of those who have it. 

Let’s look at some facts about people with ADHD:

- 35% of teens with ADHD will not complete high school - that’s double the dropout rate of average teens.

- 30% of kids with ADHD will fail a year of school, or be required to repeat a grade.

- 45% of kids with ADHD get suspended from school at some point.

- Only 5% of teens with ADHD will earn a college degree, compared to 28% of the general population.

- Only 0.06% of people with ADHD will earn a graduate degree, compared to 5.4% of the general population.

- They have four times as many car accidents as the general population.

- They are 4 to 9 times more likely to go to prison.

- They are 11 times more likely to be unemployed.

- 61% will be fired at some point, compared to 43% of the average population.

- They earn, on average, $2 less per hour than their non-ADHD counterparts.

- They run a significantly higher lifetime risk of depression, anxiety, and antisocial disorders than people without ADHD.

ADHD is not a made-up disorder; it is a very real thing that has a profound effect on the lives of people who have it. 

So what other myths about ADHD are floating around?

- Contrary to popular belief, ADHD is under-diagnosed. While there is some evidence to suggest that little boys are being over-diagnosed with it, girls are being grossly under-diagnosed. Teachers and parents’ are quick to recognize the disorder in boys; girls with ADHD, on the other hand, are dismissed as ‘ditsy’ or ‘spacey’, preventing them from getting the help they need. Doctors estimate that ADHD occurs equally in boys and girls, but boys are six times more likely to be diagnosed and treated.

- ADHD is not a childhood disorder. Studies have found that anywhere from 30% to a whopping 80% of childhood cases of ADHD continue on into adulthood, affecting sufferers for the rest of their lives. Even when cases don’t continue, the education gaps created in early years can affect a person long into adulthood.

- ADHD is not caused by diet. The vast majority of cases of ADHD are genetic. Other major causes include prenatal exposure to alcohol, and traumatic brain injuries. No cases are caused by food dyes, or excessive consumption of sugar.

- ADHD is not a “short attention span”. People with ADHD do not lack attention spans, they lack the ability to regulate their attention. When people with ADHD discover an activity that highly interests them, they can focus on it single-mindedly for hours, ignoring all other activities, much like you’d see in autism. 

- ADHD medication doesn’t turn kids into “zombies”. At least, not if they’re on the right one. The medications prescribed for ADHD are not addictive or dangerous. In kids with ADHD, the proper dose of of the right medication can ease symptoms and allow children to regulate their attention and control their impulses. Untreated children with ADHD are more likely to grow up to be drug or alcohol addicts; medication significantly reduces that risk. 

ADHD is one of the most common mental illnesses that any of us will encounter, but despite that, it remains poorly-understood, and is not treated as a serious disorder. People have grown skeptical of the disorder entirely, and look down on cases of ADHD as poor parenting or simple ‘drug-pushing’. The reality is that ADHD can make it extremely difficult to lead a normal life or achieve goals, and no one should look down on the treatments that make it possible for so many people to function.

Stay in Drugs, Don’t do School

So one of my players is a member of a thieves guild, and I have some plans for a rival group to start pushing drugs onto the streets. These take the form of discount potions meant to hook people. Along with those, there are some drugs inspired by my love of Fallout down below. I don’t mind shamelessly ripping off a great game for my table. Enjoy!

Drugs and Addiction

Every time a creature takes a drug, they must make a Constitution saving throw. The base DC for every drug is 10, and increases by 1 for every success. On a failure, the creature is addicted. For every day they go without taking the drug while addicted, they must make a Constitution saving throw. On a success they are still addicted. On a failure, the creature suffers one level of exhaustion. After 3 successes, the creature loses all levels of exhaustion and is no longer addicted. The DC of the drug remains the same as it was.

Bolt: For 1 minute, your speed increases by 5 feet, and you can take the Search action as a bonus action on your turn. Also, creatures have disadvantage on attack rolls against you. If you take damage, you lose this ability until the start of your next turn.

Bruiser: For 1 hour, piercing, slashing, and bludgeoning damage you take is reduced by 5.

Berserk: For 1 hour, you have advantage in Strength checks, and your melee weapon and unarmed strike attacks do an additional 1d4 points of damage.

Back Bone: You gain 2d8 temporary hit points, and have advantage on saving throws against being frightened for 1 hour.

Vigor: You regain 2d6 + your Constitution modifier (minimum of +0) hit points.

Jinx: Your spell save DC and spell attack bonus increase by 2 for 1 minute.

Takes You Over

A shot glass is put in her hand and Caroline throws it back without even thinking about it, too busy glaring (while acting like she’s completely unbothered – no easy feat) at Klaus and his ever widening circle of admirers across the room.

She was pretty sure she was about to witness some leg humping.

Her throat burns as she swallows, but not in the way she’s used to. It’s a cold and scratchy all the way down her throat, an odd sensation. The taste is weird too, herbaceous almost, and her attention is pulled away as she fights a gag. She looks up to find the bartender, a witch Caroline’s become friendly-ish with (and only because the first time she’d come to this bar had been during one of Bonnie’s visits) watching her with great interest. Maybe she’s misread the situation terribly and the girl’s actually been planning to murder her all along?

That would be just Caroline’s luck.

“What was that?” she demands, slamming the shot glass down on the bar top so hard it shatters, shards digging into her fingertips.

The smile she’s offered is enigmatic but not malicious. “A local specialty. A helping hand, if you will. And it’s on the house.”

Dunkirk Blues

You couldn’t remember the last time you’d felt this depressed. It’d been a couple months since you’d seen Harry. He was away filming Dunkirk in France and you’re stuck in London. He called or FaceTimed you whenever he could, but it wasn’t enough. It was nice to see his face and hear his voice, but nothing could compare to him being right next to you. You missed his smell, his warmth, and the way you felt right at home in his arms.

The past couple of months all you did was go to work and come home only to sit in front of the television while eating your feelings away. You’d talked to a couple of your friends, but they didn’t understand what it’s like to not be able to see your boyfriend whenever you wanted.

You were lying on the couch when you heard banging on the door. You slowly pushed yourself up and drug your feet to the door. When you opened it you were surprised to see Louis, Niall, and Liam standing there with food and some movies to watch. “Ello, love. We came to cheer you up. We know you’ve been feeling down lately. Are you just gonna stand there or are you gonna let us in?” Louis said with a smile on his face.

“Uh,yeah come on in. Why didn’t you tell me you were coming? I would have at least gotten dressed.”

“If we’d told yeh, you wouldn’t have let us come,” Niall said with a smirk.

anonymous asked:

Is there a devious and delinquent dark side to this crime boss Viktor or is he as pure as the snow? He seems quite happy to do good wishes to people in his gangs territory and he doesn't seem the sort to operate drug pushing, prostitution, extortion or murder. Does he murder people with cakes? Assassination by fun is hard to prove.

He’s definitely not as pure as fallen snow ^w^
although he has a sweet side to him, and is still the silly and charming Victor we all know and love, he’s definitely a Mafia boss o3o
He takes care of those in his territory, but, if you cross him, don’t expect to make it back to your family or anything.
But, it is true he doesn’t get involved in really messy things P:
No hand in drugs, prostitution, or slave trade or anything :O
As for murder, I’d say guns are his weapon of choice, but he’s flexible~

So, I’m watching Todsünde and I’m like “god damn Sebastian is hot” and then he flips out and I’m like “no thank you” but there’s this bit during one of the interrogation scenes where Christoph’s eyes just go dead and his voice lowers to this growl and I’m like “should I find this attractive” and part of me says “HECK YES” and the other part slowly crawls into the fetal position and laments my lack of morality.

Just figured I’d share.

my concepts for my modern olympian sets explained (part 2)


This is just my explanations for all my Modern Olympian Greek God aesthetics series. The concepts I had in mind while making it, and the story behind each one. If you haven’t seen it, the link is HERE.


A man who accomplished all that he had done merely for being exceedingly charming. Dionysus is an investor of hedonism. If it makes you drunk, stoned, dance, or horny, Dionysus has his hands in it. He owns several dance clubs, and rave venues across the nation, as well as has his own line of hard liquor and elite wines. On the downlow, he is also a drug lord. Pushing everything from weed to ecstasy; the only thing he won’t touch are prescription pills. He has homes in many countries, but his favourite is his mansion in Miami. A gorgeous luxury beach home where he hosts many Gatzby-level parties almost every weekend. Dionysus is a little person, and one of the more successful of Zeus’ bastards. Despite his birth, Dionysus had built a huge following for simply doing what he loves: partying. 


One of the most driven of Zeus’ daughters, Athena had reached her position with little help from her father. Started as a traffic cop, Athena rose up the ranks in a considerable short period of time for someone as young as her. She went into homicide, detective, and then found herself as an FBI agent. However, she did not stop there, as her talents and ambition earned her a high ranking level in the CIA. Athena is an unstoppable force and an immoveable object; she is intelligent and lethal. Only briefly had she thought about joining her brother, Ares, in Military, but thought better since her talents suited something more political and sophisticated. Still young, it is only a few short years before she is running the entire show in the CIA headquarters. More often than not, Ares and Athena butt heads like rams on who is more badass. Athena usually wins. 


Apollo has many talents, though he is mostly known for his music. He became a famous musician quite quickly, and soon after his artwork thrived as well. In almost every medium of art, whether it was music, painting, sculpting, or theatre, Apollo is good at it. What he is also good at is falling in love. He can’t help it, when he sees something beautiful, his heart gives in. They become his muse, and he obsesses over it until the next beautiful thing walks by him and steals his heart as well. His heart is nondiscriminatory; he will fall in love with any beautiful soul or face regardless of gender identity or sexual preference. He will write songs about them, paint a picture, or write poems, etc. It is plainly that Apollo wears his heart on his sleeve. Because of his charm and his beautiful talents, Apollo has many fans, and many vying for his affections. There are some, though, that dont always fall for him, and it sometimes…doesn’t end pleasantly. A few revenge songs here or there happen quite often. Apollo is very friendly and keeps his friends close, but his strongest friendship is with his twin sister, Artemis, who is the very opposite to him. While he is the sun; shines brightly and demands attention, Artemis is the moon; distant and mysterious, and sometimes disappears for a day.  


Artemis is a completely independent woman. Also, the complete opposite of her twin brother, Apollo. She doesn’t open her heart so easily; the last time she did that, she got her heart broken. Therefore, romance isn’t something she is interested in, and being an Asexual, neither is sex. Artemis focuses on things that make her happy, which is taking care of wildlife. She volunteers at shelters and rescue centres, and does her best to defend urban animals in the city where they are often treated like vermin. Artemis has taken many strays in her time, and nursed them back to health and returned them back into the wild. Artemis prefers to be alone, though she has a close knit small group of friends that support her and her life choices. In fact, they practically live with her. She actually doesn’t have a standard job; she isn’t a fan of conforming, and picks up jobs for quick cash, but ultimately, she isn’t one to live for materialism. Artemis wouldn’t consider herself ‘homeless’, but she has couch-hoped, and slept in subways before. But, she is happy because she is doing what she loves, which is being the silent guardian of animals. And if you are ever caught abusing any of them, she will probably have her dog castrate you. Artemis prefers animals and nature overall more than people. Being an activist, she attends many rallies, many of them for environment issues, and for animal rights. The environment is a big one, and one of the ways she makes money is by picking up cans and bottles and selling them for pocket change. She would also fight you if you litter in front of her, so…. don’t. Additionally, Artemis is a fierce feminist, and will defend the virtue and honour of women if she saw injustice in front of her. If she had a computer and internet access, she would have a tumblr, let’s be honest. 


This seasoned traveller is easily likeable, and knows many people thanks to his job. While he does live primarily in Vegas, and spends a lot of time being lucky in casinos, Hermes’ primary job is a courier. This is how he gets to travel so often and at such a cheap rate. Though he wasn’t always a courier… He had less socially acceptable careers, such as a thief. A thief who had a massive gambling debt that he owed the Mob Boss, Hades, and in order to pay it, he stole some money from his friend Apollo. Though all was forgiven after he repaid everyone (and let’s be honest, his “luck” at the casino isn’t luck at all). Even if Hermes has a tendency for trickery and most people wouldn’t trust him with their credit cards, it’s hard to hate him, because he does keep his allies and friends close. He knows how to pull strings to bring opportunities to his friends and family, and anyone willing to pay him. Especially since he has traveled all over the world, he’s met many people from different backgrounds and different talents. Hermes’ primary client in his courier career is Zeus, where he hand delivers important papers, packages, etc, to certain people that he doesn’t want to risk using the mail for.


Ares did not follow his father in business or politics. He was a difficult child to raise, even Hera’s coddling did not soften his edges. In school, an all boy’s school, he got into so many fights that he got expelled more than three times until they decided to send him to military school. That was the beginning of Ares’ career. It turned out the military life suited him perfectly… Probably not the best idea to allow him near fire arms, but it turned out he is very good with them. He still got into trouble; his easily triggered anger would get him into fist fights that would end up in broken noses and bruised eyes. However, with his father’s name, and his natural talents in warfare, his rank rose to Master Gunnery Sergeant after a few years. Though he shows promise to raise to higher ranks, his youth and his hot-headedness has been keeping him where he is. Besides, he works better on the floor than he does with political-side of the military with the lieutenants and generals. More often than not, him and his half sister, Athena, always butt heads on who are better, the CIA or the Military. They also often find themselves on opposite ends of every argument. Ares’ always comes off more emotional and Athena more logical, so it is no wonder than his older sister wins every argument.

JustSimplyMe: Ginny getting roofied at a club and Protective!Mike.

Okay, so I tweaked this a little bit, because roofies make me really squeamish, but I think this is still in keeping with what you wanted

read it on ao3

Something strange is going on. 

Mike’s not sure if it’s been like this all night or if it only started recently. He should’ve been watching more closely, should’ve known the minute that something shifted. It doesn’t matter that he’s spent most of the evening within arm’s reach, he still should’ve known

What should be a laid back night out with the team has got a knot of worry eating away at his gut. Because something is… not right. But he can’t put a finger on what.

Okay, he can. It’s Ginny. 

(When isn’t it Ginny?) 

He just hasn’t figured out why she’s acting so unusually and it’s starting to drive him crazy.

She’s not sloppy. In fact, Mike doesn’t think he’s ever seen Ginny even get drunk on team outings. Tipsy, yes, but rarely drunk. She tends to keep such exacting control over herself. 

So, while she’s drunk more than she usually does, it’s not anything to raise eyebrows. Well, anyone else’s eyebrows. But there’s definitely something different about her tonight. 

She’s… looser. Freer. 

She’s all over him.

The Teen Feeder - Cole's Feeding

This is the story of Cole Simeon and how he became a fat Boy with a large belly from a sporty teenager in only one night thanks to the ‘Teen Feeder’…

Cole was a very athletic seventeen year old. At school he was the captain of the soccer team and the gymnastics team. He was very popular with the girls and was going out with Chloe on the girls soccer team. Cole likes to mess around at school and is quite frequently in trouble.

“Hey Chloe. Sorry I can’t make it round tonight, I have to stay at my uncles house to make sure the burglars don’t return.” Said Cole on the phone to his girlfriend.
“Promise you will come see me tomorrow? I have a little surprise!” Giggled Chloe.
“Sure thing! See you soon. Love yah!” Cole put his phone in his pocket and walked into the hall to find his uncle putting on his coat.
“Now Cole, if you see these thieves, then make sure you phone the police. Don’t let them take anything” Said his Uncle as he fastened his coat.
“Yes Uncle Gil. You’ve already told me this five times!” Laughed Cole.
“I’m just making sure you will remember” Gil picked up his car keys and pointed them at Cole “if I come home to find the house clean I will pay yah £250.”
“Really? Thanks Gil!”
“Anyway, gotta go. This business trip is pretty important! I’ll be back tomorrow night!” Said Gil as he walked out the door. As the door shut, Cole jumped into the kitchen and started cleaning up.


Cole walked into the living room and sat down. He picked up his phone and tried to phone Chloe. After four attempts of Chloe not picking up, Cole left a message.
“Hey Chloe, it’s me. I just wanted to let you know that if we have time tomorrow, do you want to go swimming? Phone me back soon. Love yah” Cole put his phone down and stood up to go to the toilet. Suddenly a rustle came from outside. ‘The thieves’ thought Cole as he grabbed his phone. Cole dimmed the lights and unlocked his phone. The phone displayed a empty battery.
“For fuck sake” whispered Cole as he thew his out of charge phone onto the sofa. Cole tiptoed his way to the front door and owned it quietly. He poked his head out and looked in the direction of the noise. Nothing. Cole took a step outside and looked around. He walked into the bushes and searched. Cole noticed a black notebook. He picked it up and flicked through. Suddenly, Cole fell to the floor. He was knocked out.


Cole gasped awake. He couldn’t see a thing. He was laying down. He tried to stand, but felt that he was tied to a bed by his hands and feet. Cole was tied up on the bed in just his underwear. Coles slim figure was on show, along with his muscley arms.
“Calm down” came a voice next to Cole.
“What do you want! Wait a minute, you are the little shit that has been stealing from my uncle, aren’t you!” Screeched Cole, trying to get out of his restraints.
“Stealing? No, that’s not me. I just want you Cole” replied the man.
“What me? Why me? This is a trick isn’t it? It’s you Billy isn’t it!” Laughed Cole.
“I only want to do something to you” said the man.
“What?! Please! Am I naked? Shit. Please don’t say you’re a paedo!” Paniced Cole.
“No I’m not a paedo and youve got underwear on. This is what I’m going to do.” Suddenly the man pushed a large muffin into Coles mouth. Cole shrieked as he tried hrs not to swallow, but the man was holding his nose which made Cole eat it.
“Stop! Why are you feeding me!” Screamed Cole.
“Oh don’t worry about that. Just relax” said the man as he placed another muffin in Coles mouth. Cole moaned as he tried desperately to free himself.


“Stop. Feeding. Me.” Moaned Cole as the man shoved a large slice of chocolate cake into his mouth.
“As I said before, it’s to late now.” Said the man. Cole swallowed the cake and moaned.
“So. Stuffed.” Moaned Cole.
“I’m not surprised fatty” said the man. Cole had gotten fat. Where Coles once skinny stomach was was now a large soft belly. Moobs were resting against each other which resembled a pair of female breasts. His thighs were now meaty and huge. Coles underwear was tight and has nearly completely ripped. Coles butt poked out as Cole was lying on his side. Large love handles appeared from nowhere.
“You fat pig” laughed the man as he rubbed Coles soft belly. He squeezed the belly and Cole moaned.
“Please. Don’t. Too stuffed.” Moaned Cole.
“Don’t worry. I’m done now.” The man smacked Coles large butt, which made the underwear rip, releasing Coles fat butt and his privates.
“Oops. I’ll leave you for your uncle to find” smiled the man as he pushed a drugged cloth onto Coles face. Cole fell asleep.


“Hi Cole I’m home.” Smiled Gil as he unlocked the door. He threw his keys into the bowl and walked into the living room.
“Cole? Are you upstairs?” Shouted Gil.
“Uncle Gil! Help me! I’m upstairs! You’re bed! Help!” Screeched Cole. Gil ran up the stairs and went into his bedroom. There he found a fat naked Cole tied up.
“Cole! What the fuck is going on!” Screamed Gil as he tried to untie Cole from the bed.
“This man tied me up and kept feeding me! Am I fat?!”
“See for yourself” said Gil as he pulled off the blindfold from Cole. Cole looked down at himself. He found a large belly, a pair of soft moobs and large thighs.
“Why would that man do this!” Screamed Cole as he cried into his Uncles shoulder.
“Whoever did this to you Cole is going to pay…”

anonymous asked:

I think they're building these two up to get married or form some small family unit between them as well. Betty's a very nurturing figure and Jughead's in need of that sense of belonging and home so I think it's not completely crazy to think they'll get married really young

they already are a small family unit, which is why i don’t find the idea of them getting married in high school absurd. betty and jughead both had such huge family problems this season, so they found that love, comfort, and support that you’re supposed to get from your family in each other. they’re both on better terms with their blood families now, but that doesn’t change the fact that they formed their own family. i honestly and truly believe that jughead views betty as his home. that scene in the snow when she says, “this is your home. you know that, right?” his first “yeah” is so fake sounding, which betty picks up on, and then makes him really look at her. once he does that, his whole face softens and his “yes” sounds so sincere. betty is his home

but, i mean, there are problems with that want/theory. the biggest one being their age. in nearly every state, you have to be 18 to get married without parents’ permission. betty and jughead are both only 16; and i could maybe see fp giving permission, but i have a hard time believing alice and hal would let betty get married so young. 

but then there’s also fp’s trailer. the tv watcher in me says they can’t keep him in custody, but then the realist in me says that he should be doing prison time. i don’t mean that in the sense that i think he should be in jail, but he did cover up a murder. even if he gave names, or they figured out who was really pushing the drugs, in real life he would still be doing prison time. in all fairness, i don’t know much about the justice system, so could he get house arrest for that? it seems like too big of a crime to be able to serve out your sentence at home, but i could be wrong. –but if he does really go to jail, his trailer is just sitting there empty. it’d be perfect for a small family such as jughead, betty, and polly (who is going to be having two babies soon). i’m pretty sure that polly is 18, so, if she had the money, she could very well move in there.

I dreamt I was a superhero could fly etc. but I kept getting captured and killed by gangsters so I got irritated and started pushing a drug decriminalisation slash harm reduction program to destroy their business and I got so bored I woke up so I guess they won this round
