Ok, re: the hockey boycott, I wanna explain some of the key points to you soccer fans who may not know the full importance of this. I know it may not be a sport you follow, but it’s a step for all of women’s sports
Like in soccer, Team USA is one of the dominant NTs in woho, a very top-teir NT. Obviously any NT standing up for what they deserve is a big deal, but havng a “big” team like this strike really sends echos through the hockey world and the sports world in general.
Worlds is one of the major hockey tourneys, so boycotting this is a massive statement. Theyre not boycotting some small, less importnat tournament.
The US is hosting Worlds this year. We’re boycotting a tourney that our own country is hosting. Which makes this boycott harder to ignore and really helps things hit home (and also dude it’s just hella gutsy)
The team isn’t even striking for equal pay, they just want living wages. Like enough-money-to-eat type wages.
The players get paid $1000 a month during the Olympic period, which lasts 6 months–i.e., $6k every 4 years
Outside of the Olympic months they get paid basically nothing and many players have second jobs as a means to survive
Positivity post for boys who can’t tie their shoes! ✨
I know how hard it is to do the loopdy-loop, and trying to fumble around with the laces is super tiring. You are valid for getting tired and just giving up. You don’t need to mess with them for 30 minutes just to get it wrong and have them unlace and trip over them and smash your face in and bust up your nose on the sidewalk, or tie them so tight that you can’t untie them and end up having to cut the laces and buy a new pair in humiliation at the Macy’s wifth your mom, who told you a billion times over to just learn how to do them.
It’s okay if you don’t know how to tie your sohoes. YOu can get along in life without know hing how to tie your rshoes, and you don’t have to feel bad abot it ! There are plenty of people who don’t know how to tie teir shoes…. here’s a list of celebri- well, a-…. I… There’s plenty of people for sure that… . I mean……… It’s okay . You..

Companions reacting to a qunari inquisitor speaking qunlat? I know that, that's not how it works in-game, but a girl can dream :-( - Also super good luck to this blog, super excited for future posts ❤️❤️
Cassandra: She’s more or less unfazed by it. In her mind
there is no difference between the Inquisitor speaking Qunlat and An Orlesian
Inquisitor who spoke Orlesian. It’s their language and their culture. If they
only spoke Qunlat that would be a problem, but as long as it doesn’t hamper
communication she is unbothered by it.
Solas: Everytime he hears the language he grits his teeth.
The mage loathes all things Qunari, after all, but so long as the Inquisitor
was not a follower of the Qun he would get past it.
Varric: More or less ignores it, or maybe impresses the
Inquisitor by answering back once or twice with short phrases in the same
language. Observant by nature Varric picked up a few things during Kirkwall’s
time with the Qunari but takes a similar view to Cassandra.
Sera: It gives her the willies at first, words that she
doesn’t understand, but eventually she will learn to roll with it. If in a
relationship with a female Inquisitor she may even learn a few of the phrases
that her honeytongue murmers to her. Maybe
Vivienne: Everytime the Inquisitor speaks their mother
language the Grand Enchanter pinches the bridge of her nose and tries not to
despair. Every phrase is accompanied by a warning to stick with common among
the nobility and influential. It’s not that she begrudges them their language,
but others will—and she wants them to be both safe and powerful.
Blackwall: He’s not a man who judges others for their
languages, and Maker knows its better than Orlesian. As long as they don’t go
spouting out about the Qun he honestly doesn’t much care.
Dorian: In his most honest moments the mage can admit that
ingrained Tevene sensibilities have him shuddering everytime he hears the
language, if only from the horror stories he’s heard about raids. But if in a
friendship or relationship with the Inquisitor he learns to tolerate it, and
eventually his scholarly curiousity will probably have him asking them to teach
Iron Bull: At first it’s a curiousity, something that the
Ben-Hassrath were slightly nervous about. If they can speak Qunlat they may be
able to read it, and that could jeopardize some of the privacy of Iron Bull’s
reports. It doesn’t bother him much though, and he will probably just file it
away. But if the chargers are not sacrificed during Demands of the Qun it
becomes a tie to his homeland. To everything he ever was, everything he’s lost.
After that there will be days when he will seek out the Inquisitor just to
speak in teir shared language, to keep the homesickness and shame of being
Tal-Vashoth at bay.
Cole: “Words, different from the rest, words that mean
mother and father and safety and home. Different from the belief but not from
the people. Drawing, pulling, the memories without the hurt.” Cole doesn’t care
what they speak as long as they don’t hurt people, and if they are lonely he
speaks to them in that same language without a single formal lesson.
Dorado, we are defense. We have this DVA who seems to be showing someone the mechs of the game (“See every choke point has at least one way to flank around it”). Howcute.jpg. We start and I realize this DVA thinks theyre a sniper.
They’re roosting in Widow spots on top of buildings and leaving the team in the dust on the payload. They’re running behind 5 of the enemy to chase a single person down (it was the Soldier, never the healer). I had to solo track down and destroy the shield generator after I had said in VC 3x where it was and no one followed up (it was in the Dorado church which the payload was right next to so it’s not like it was in bumfuck nowhere).
Game ends and the God Teir Junkrat and I get cards. No one else does. And what does this roosting, useless, shy DVA say on VC? “I would have voted for Mercy but she didn’t do enough.” 12k healing *and* 10 emils *and* the fact I solo held the payload 4 times while she was 2 stories above me doing 2 damage per 20 bullets and watching me die tells me I did really fucking well.
Like I don’t expect you to fall on your knees praising me but insulting me dude???? You could have just said “you did great Junkrat” and left it at that. They did do great, I voted for them.
The entire team was so done with this DVA that we had to ask them repeatedly to get NEAR the payload. All the while they kept calling other people on the enemy team weak???
I’m just tired. I wanna be able to play Mercy on OVW for more than an hour before I have to quit the game because someone expects every boo to be healed when I’m one Mercy and there’s 5 dying children I’m watching over.
