seediness

Despite losing access to my google account last night, necessitating putting my old OS back in temporarily, it looks like everything new is back up and running. Just finished calibration and am getting my tablet/art programs kicking again. Gaming is back online, and now I can finally use all of my ludicrous amounts of ram that I paid through the butt for :D I am still awaiting my NEW new mouse, as the one I just purchased turned out to not be new, but a broken refurb. (Lesson learned, order from Razer. Always. Never some seedy electronics shop because it was twenty bucks cheaper. There is always a catch.) Turns out my poor computer had MPD because of that old hard drive I had in it. Improperly partitioned, The Beast was trying to run two disparate copies of windows at once, causing ID issues with the motherboard and driver explosions on the regular. SO. Hah. Ftttt. New hard drives and new copy of windows in place. I’m e x h a u s t e d. But that’s okay. PPS: Someone remind me to replace my 25mm internal fan? By the time last night’s misadventures were complete I just wanted windows to stop updating so I could go to bed.

Context: I’m playing a slutty half-drow bard who tries to seduce practically everything he sees. We’re trying to get noticed by the local thieves’ guild so I stole some jewels from a marketplace in broad daylight. However, this wasn’t enough for the thieves’ guild to find us, so we had to find a safe way to stash the jewels before we started going into the seedy areas of the city.

Me: All right, everyone, I’m going to swallow the biggest ruby we have.

GM: Fine, roll a medicine check. (I roll 8). It looks like you can probably swallow it.

Rogue: Woah, woah, you could kill yourself.

Me: Nah, I’ve swallowed worse before.

Rogue: What, when?

Me, winking and shoving the ruby down my throat: What happens in the Underdark stays in the Underdark, sweetheart.

First Look at Duncan Jones’ Sci-Fi Noir ‘Mute’ 

“Set in the near-future, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) is a bartender living in the pulsing city of Berlin.  Because of a childhood accident, Leo lost the ability to speak and the only good thing in his life is his beautiful girlfriend Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh). When she vanishes without a trace, Leo’s search for her takes him deep into the city’s seedy underbelly.  A pair of wise-cracking American surgeons (Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux) are the only recurring clue and Leo is forced to take on this teeming underworld in order to find his love.”

It is my firm belief that in an Anakin doesn’t turn to the dark side and brings up his kids alongside Padme au, teenage Leia would definitely bring home one Han - older, dodgy background, can hold his own in a bar brawl and swaggers just a bit too much -Solo, just to piss off her father.

Luke makes moon eyes at him the whole dinner. Listening with rapt attention to every single word that comes out of his mouth. Padme politely peppering him with questions as she swiftly removes anything breakable from Anakin’s grip.

Then Han starts talking about the Hutts and how he worked for Jabba at one point, how he didn’t agree with his methods but still needed the work to keep living; at least smuggling spices and the like, nothing too seedy, he absolutely refused to assist in any of the slave trade on pure principle.

And right at that moment Anakin Skywalker maybe starts to like him.

  • tailgate expectations: (an actual, literal baby. the uwu emoji)
  • tailgate reality: [drinks from a curly straw with exaggerated slurping sounds, then slams the glass down on the counter of a seedy bar] who wants to hear about the time I punched a guys head off

i know this is cliche af but i want a plot where muse a is broke as hell and does little jobs to get by and gets hired to spend a summer at some rich family’s estate and do some stuff around the house. meanwhile there’s muse b who is a part of the family who owns the estate and leads a lifestyle of lavish parties and thoughtless spending, and is entirely different from muse a. still, they keep bumping into each other, and eventually end up growing close to the point where muse b sneaks muse a into fancy parties, and muse a takes muse b out to know the seedy little bars hidden out of the view of the wealthy or for motorcycle rides in the dead of night because they keep this relationship under wraps? and maybe there’s even some angst and jealousy when muse a runs into an ex they never thought they’d see again or muse b is flirting with someone else at a party muse a is working at. this could be so much fun tbh
