team roles

  • Clyde: We each need to pick someone from the original team, and perform their role in the group! We can be exactly like them... but better!
  • Craig: That... sort of makes sense.
  • Clyde: I call Stan! I'm obviously best suited to being the boss.
  • Token: You are very bossy.
  • Clyde (voice breaking): Thank you.
  • Jimmy: Then I'll do what Kyle does!
  • Clyde: Craig, you can be Kenny.
  • Craig: Which one is he?
  • [Clyde makes a disgusted face]
  • Craig: I'm joking.
  • Clyde: Great! You're already in character!

i’m sorry but i’ve spent the whole day thinking about how scanlan and pike are probably at just about perfect height for some accidental/purposeful groin elbowing on their taller party members

and i’ve just been laughing about the idea of pike telling a story, maybe about her and grog’s adventures growing up, and she gets really animated telling it and she’s making these big gestures and she just. accidentally catches percy right in the junk with her elbow.

and the whole group is watching her talk so they all see it happen and the other three guys all make like these noises of sympathy and then they just lose it. scanlan is on the ground in seconds, grog is crying, vax is laughing so hard he’s making this terrible wheezing noise every time he tries breathe. vex and keyleth are trying really hard not to laugh, but it’s not going very well.

pike, of course, feels terrible, and percy is doubled over and red in the face and yet still trying both to maintain his dignity and make pike feel better because no one wants to make pike feel bad, even about this, but he’s just had a very strong, heavily armored, enthusiastic gnome elbow hit him right in the delicate bits and privately he’s thinking well this is the end of percival frederickstein von musel klossowski de rolo the third, killed by an accidental gnome elbow to the crotch. this is the end, not with a bang but with an extraordinarily high pitched whimper.

for like a week afterwards, scanlan keeps flinching towards percy with his elbow and then laughing his ass off at percy’s ridiculous dodges to try and protect himself until vex kicks him in the junk to defend percy’s honor

I’ll never get over how 9-foot-tall, made-of-muscle-and-hit-points, makes-heads-explode-with-minimal-effort Grog Strongjaw looked at Pike and Scanlan, three foot tall “little bits” (in his own words) and decided they were the greatest things ever.

Like. It honestly wouldn’t be at all surprising to me if Grog had looked down on the gnomes a little (no pun intended), especially Scanlan. They’re tiny. He could have easily looked at this little punk a third his size who tries to avoid using weapons whenever possible and whose primary means of fighting is singing and just dismissed him. Or he could have looked at Pike, who he loves with all his heart as a member of his family, and nevertheless thought her mace and armor were more “cute” than “deadly”.

But he didn’t. Grog treats the gnomes like they’re every bit as awesome and badass as he himself is. He regularly invites Pike to help him out with feats of strength–even when she isn’t sure she actually could, he insists that he wants her to. He gets so excited when she gets those ogre gauntlets and is even stronger. He is thoroughly convinced Pike is the biggest badass in Vox Machina (aside from himself). Scanlan is his go-to whenever he needs someone to partner up with and Pike isn’t there. He picked him, out of all of Vox Machina, to fight Earthbreaker Gruun with (alongside Vax). Grog, who is easily wooed by shows of strength (hi, Kima), looked at the gnome bard and went “yes, i want that one”.

Grog loves the gnomes so much, you guys.

“The important thing is not how long you live…It’s what you accomplish with your life. While I live, I want to shine. I want to prove that I exist. If I could do something really important…That would definitely carry on into the future.”

If Twitter accounts fall silent in the woods, can they still make a sound? Turns out, yes — lots.

Tuesday afternoon, a new Twitter account called “AltUSNatParkService” appeared and began tweeting out facts about climate change, support for the National Parks and comments in opposition of President Trump, who has called climate change a hoax created by China.

All this came in response to the news of new orders to limit outward contact with the public, including bans on social media postings, at the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Interior Department, which oversees the National Park Service. The EPA was ordered to enact a temporary media blackout as the Trump administration transitions its team into the agency roles.

Rogue National Park Accounts Emerge On Twitter Amid Social Media Gag Orders

Hold up.

I’ve been confident that Qrow wasn’t going to die from Tyrian’s poison… But now I’ve had a shocking thought…

Qrow and Raven are meant to represent Odin’s pet ravens that acted as his eyes to watch over the world with. Qrow’s emblem even looks like an eye. Throughout the series so far, Qrow has been watching over Team RNJR, taking the role of being a watchful eye over them.

And I can’t help but think, that maybe we misinterpreted a line from Tyrian. A line that we thought was a threat to Ruby. We were all relieved when that threat didn’t come true. But… what if it meant something entirely different. What if, Ruby does lose an eye.

It’s just not the eye we were expecting her to lose…
