the only acceptable team

I had a dream where the lions had corporeal holographic forms to interact with their Paladins. And it’s all hijinks and shenanigans [and Lance teasing Keith for how motherly Red is with him] until Shiro notices how generally unpleasant Red is with him.

At first he thinks nothing of it cause she seems just as dismissive towards the others, and Keith tries reassuring him that she’s just being herself. Until he brings up the whole leading Voltron subject with Keith again, then she’s a hissing growling menace and if it weren’t for Black and Keith, Shiro thinks he might have become her chew toy. Doesn’t help that all the lions can speak, cause everyone can hear Red calling him a “cub stealing meatsack”.

And of course he tries resolving the issue [can’t have problems in the Team, even if it lies between a Paladin and a lion that isn’t his]. But considering how temperamental and unstable the Red lion is? He doesn’t get a reasonable discussion “You want a successor? Fine! But don’t come sniffing at my cub’s direction and leaving him an anxious mess with your talk of potential death!” and really putting him on the spot and getting a faceful of sharp teeth “Funny how you feel absolutely fine with keeping this topic to yourself and Keith. Shouldn’t you be discussing this with the princess? After all, she seems like a more suitable candidate for Black, and I sure haven’t heard of my sister’s approval on the matter”. Then it’s just her dragging Keith away by the sleeve and him just turning to give Shiro a helpless look. 

on the surface level, bitty becoming captain makes sense in terms of narrative & rounding out his storyline but it also means a huge fucking deal to him as a character:

this quote to me has a couple meanings- first, he didn’t have very much confidence in his own athletic ability in his freshman year and had such a mental block with his physicality trauma that he nearly got removed from the team. but he’s not just talking about being part of a successful team, he says “a team like this.” aka, a team that not only accepts/tolerates having an out gay teammate, but loves and supports him and values him, on and off the ice. 

as a freshman he wouldn’t have believed that a hockey team could be like this- but he’s come far enough to recognize how valuable he is to the team and to his friends, enough so that he starts crying when he goes up to accept the captaincy because this is just a validation of all the work he’s put in. he’s worked on making himself a better athlete, he’s worked on making the haus more homey, he’s worked to make the younger players feel more welcome and part of the team- he’s just put so much time and effort into this team and it shows.

and now he’s getting rewarded with his honor that he probably didn’t even see coming and everyone’s pride and love for him shows on their faces and it’s so much! it’s so much bc bitty is the type of person that exudes so much love without expecting anything in return. but here he is, getting all that love back. and he just really, really deserves it

Do you think the aus team is the closest team to the US ? They probably like Australia the most because they literally have never lost to them

I think every top country has to respect Australia. They rarely get to play friendlies, they rarely get to have camps together and their team is super young. Yet, they’re still ranked in the top 10. They literally amaze me. Sam Kerr, Steph Catley, Emily Van Egmond, Caitlin Foord; Alanna Kennedy, Kyah Simon….. they’re SO FUCKING GOOD and they’re SO FUCKING YOUNG. It’s almost scary….. The love and respect I have for the Aussies is unreal

whatever u do pls don’t think about how hurt lance must’ve been when Blue didn’t open for him. how he’d just been rejected by the black lion and come back to the only one on the team who’d ever fully accepted him and never questioned his ability to pilot her. don’t think about how what little resolve he had left must’ve broke down when she wouldn’t let him in. don’t think about how alone he must have felt. or about how useless he thought he was. don’t think about it. don’t.

I love how it's only now the accepted talking point that harry and his team have not been engaging the fandom. Has everyone had their heads up their asses for the entire hiatus, because this is not new. And fine if it's how harry and his team want to play it, I can even in theory understand why they might, but let's not act like this is new info. And let's not be shocked when his team reaps what they sow with an exhausted and unmotivated fandom.

‘Accepted talking point’ yeah seriously!

I’m just like where was this understanding *before*? Why is it only now that people are allowed to express concern and frustration about Harry’s team when before it resulted in an onslaught of ‘you hate Harry!’ messages and passive aggressive tags and posts.

Like I have an archive full of posts I made a month ago that resulted in so much negativity and harassment that are pretty much a word for word breakdown of the discussion this morning and I’m ???

Today was one of those days that you were a little off your game you weren’t watching your surroundings so you didn’t see the attack coming, you see you were on the football team and you were one of the best players and most of the boys on the team hated that, the only ones that accepted it was Archie and Reggie. So today they decided that they were going to try and put an end to your football career before it even started when they were walking passed you after practice you were on your own and they barged passed you knocking you with such force that it knocked your balance and then as you tried to recover you stepped wrong and messed up your ankle bad enough that you couldn’t stand.

Now you loved sport and you loved playing football but you had never thought that it would be so hard to make friends in your own team, you expected that there would be this kind of competition outside of the team or with people trying to get on the team but not with the people already on the team, you groaned as you moved your foot slightly and then looked at where the boys had gone off to. “(Y/N)? What are you doing on the floor?” Your heard someone asked you looked over to see Reggie walking towards you.
“Nothing.” You answered, you looked at him and he raised an eyebrow looking down at you and then his eyes were drawn to your red and now swollen ankle.
“What happened?” He asked putting his bag on the floor next to you.
“Nothing happened.” You answered.
“Really?” He asked. “Stand up then.” He challenged taking a step back after standing up again, you glared at him and then sighed.
“Fine, some of the boys walked passed and pushed me over.” You answered and he frowned.
“Who?” He asked.
“I don’t know.” You answered and he looked at you, he just looked at you “I really don’t I promise I wasn’t looking at them." 
"Okay, well you need to go to the hospital,” Reggie said.
“Okay.” You grumbled.
“So I’m going to take you to the office and get them to call someone,” Reggie answered.
“Why would you do that?” You asked.
“For starters, you won’t go to the hospital if I don’t take you, I can’t take you because I don’t have a car and the last point is that this will win me some points with your parents.” He winked.
“What? Why do you need points with my parents?” You asked.
“Then I’ll be able to take you out on a date.” he answered.
“Hold on what?” You asked but he stopped answering your questions.

Reggie carried you into the office and put you down on a chair before explaining what happened the woman at the desk who said that she would call your parents. “She just called your parents they should be here soon, wish I could stick around.” Riggie smirked leaning down and kissing your cheek “see you tomorrow superstar.”

As you sat on the plane, you watched your team interact with one another.  You were still new to the team.  They weren’t going to let anyone in so easily, and you understood that.  You were different from everyone on the team.  You only hoped that you would grow on them.  It couldn’t be easy losing one of your teammates.

Your attention was pulled away from the rest of the team when Reid sat down across from you.  He had been the most accepting of you.  Regardless of you joining the team only a couple of weeks ago, Reid welcomed you with open arms.

“You still don’t think you fit in,” Reid observed quizzically.  He folded his hands together, resting his arms on the wooden surface that separated the two of you.  “No one is the same on this team.  From where I stand, I think different is good, for all of us.”

“Me being different has a small part in it, but it’s not the part that matters,” you said in a small voice.  You let out a long breath as you adjusted the way you were sitting.  “It’s just that…  I don’t feel like I’m on the same level as the team.”

How to play ‘Always Sunny’s’ CharDee MacDennis: The Game of Games

Photo courtesy FX

Christina Caldwell• College Times

The characters on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” are notoriously self-centered. They’re also notoriously drunk, so it would make perfect sense that they would create a horrifically dangerous drinking game centered around their own personal weaknesses that tests (and crosses) the boundaries of friendship.

The game is CharDee MacDennis, a blend of all of the gang’s names, which is broken down into three levels: mind, body and soul.

We can’t in good conscience allow you to play the game as is (it would result in hospitalization), so we’ve adapted it into a safer (but still not totally safe) drinking game that you and your friends can play in the air conditioning.

Disclaimer: We suggest you only play this one with really close friends. Otherwise you might not be friends at the end of it.

The Necessities:

* Beer, wine and the hard liquor of your choice.

* Cheese.

* The “chance” cards from a game of Monopoly.

* Personalized game pieces. Dee and Dennis pasted their faces on old Barbies. Charlie and Mac used an old, grubby figurine of a military man (maybe Hitler?) and a hulking monster, respectively. Create your own. Get real weird with it.

* Mind, body and soul cards. Mind cards should include brain-ticklers like trivia and puzzles, and “artistry,” which is what the player must draw on the back of their teammate and their teammate must guess what the art is based solely on feel. Body cards include feats of strength, like when the gang draws a card and is forced to fit as many grapes in their mouths as possible within a certain time frame. Spirit cards should include two kinds, emotional battery and public humiliation. Public humiliation cards are essentially dares. Emotional battery cards are used to indicate when it’s time to berate the person who draws it. It should be “deeply personal” stuff that “cuts to the core.”

* A timer.

* A plastic tarp.

Keep in Mind:

1. You should mix the Monopoly cards in randomly with the separate piles of mind, body and soul cards. Stick the three sections in a cardboard box, but be sure to keep them separate.

2. You cannot ask questions, and if you do, your team needs to drink for five seconds. You can ask questions during the two minute break between levels.

3. Once one of the obstacles on the cards is accomplished, the other team must drink. If the obstacle goes unfinished, you have to drink.

4. Cheating is not only accepted but tolerated, though the other team shouldn’t know they’re being tricked. If a team is caught cheating, the other team immediately moves to the next level.

5. If you draw the “Chance: Go to jail. Do not pass go, do not collect $200” card, you’ll be forced into a confined space (the show used a dog kennel). You can only be let out if you eat a cake. Nay, the ingredients of a cake. (Skip the raw eggs for this one.)

6. It’s possible for one team to be at one level and the other to be at another. Once one team collects three cards from that level, they move onto the next. The first team to collect cards from all levels wins.

The Wine and Cheese Reception

The wine and cheese reception is your chance to be civilized and clear the air for the disgusting debauchery is about to take place. The reception only allows kind comments and high brow discussion. This will only last for two minutes. After the two minutes, the team smashes their wine glasses and does an intimidating dance, similar to the war dance of the Māori people of New Zealand, the haka. We suggest you use plastic cups for this one. And for good measure, put down a plastic tarp ala Dexter.

Once you’re done, divide yourselves into two teams and draw your first card from the “mind” pile.

Level 1: Mind

This is the wine level. The trivia in this round is left to totally subjective questions (Q: “What is the greatest band in the world?” A: “Chumbawumba.” Q: “Dennis is asshole. Why Charlie hate?” A: “Because Dennis is a bastard man!”) If you answer wrongly, you drink. If you get it correct, the other team drinks. Try to get creative with this one. As your drawing up your cards, make sure it has questions that no one can reasonably answer with an educated guess. For artistry cards, choose subjects and concepts that are nearly impossible to draw.

Level 2: Body

This is the beer level, and is all about physical endurance. Also, there’s no cursing in this round, so you’ll have to swap out your favorite curse words for PG versions. If you curse, your team drinks.

In this round, an example is when Dennis is forced to put his hand on a dart board and let the other team throw darts around his hand without flinching. This is, of course, really stupid, so think of some physical feats that won’t result in loss of nerve function.

Level 3: Spirit

This is the hard liquor level. Otherwise known as emotional battery, this is where you’ll break your opponent’s spirit so that they’re no longer able to play. Dee is a master at this part of the game since she’s often at the butt end of the gang’s jokes. In fact, she’s so used to it, that she once “held it together without a single tear” during the game, then “cried for a month straight” once it was over.

Really, you should keep this section lighthearted. Maybe there’s something you know your friend is insecure about, but still OK with joking about it every once in a while. You should probably reserve what you actually think about them and their character for, I don’t know, never.

The alternative is to only include public humiliation, or dare cards. This way you can embarrass your opponent but not ruin their self-esteem. Think of some out-of-the-box ones and nab those last three cards on your way to victory! If a team can’t complete their challenge, they take a shot.

The Win

The winners of the game get to smash the other team’s game pieces and get bragging rights for life. 

anonymous asked:

how about writing dick and kory getting caught together on kory's room when the rest of the team didn't even know they were together? damian would probably be like "can't believe you fools didn't notice it before..." :D

I’m still not doing requests but I will write this one purely because my inbox will then be empty of any more requests. Also, I like the idea of this one.

I’m placing this like just after the first film because there wasn’t a great deal between the two to suggest a relationship in that one. Like, not enough to make it obvious at least.


Busted

Nightwing leaned against the edge of the desk, glancing at all the things that sat atop the surface. He folded his arms over his chest and lifted his head to her direction.

Starfire lay in the middle of her bed, her hands clasped together on top of her stomach. Her eyes were closed and she had this serene air about her.

“So, how has the demon child been then?” He asked, his eyes running across her form, hidden by the mask he wore.

She peeked an eye open at him in question.

He smirked, “Damian.”

Closing her eye again, she shrugged, “Actually, he has been much better since you first brought him here.”

“Really?”

“Mhm. He still seems to struggle with being social with the other Titans but I believe he is learning. His skills are extremely impressive and his temper has started to reign in somewhat.”

“Well, bravo miss leader. I knew he’d straighten out a little with you guys.”

Starfire smiled and turned her head to look at him. He tilted his own to match her expression,

“He may be troublesome but… he is a good person, deep down.” She admitted,

Nightwing exhaled, “I know. I just wish he’d show that side more instead of being an annoying little shi-”

“Dick!”

He winced at the admonishing tone of his girlfriend.

“Sorry.” He mumbled, sounding very much like a little kid,

Talk your haikyuu omegaverse Magic to me

!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t know where to start, but I’m going to talk about omega!Hinata and alpha!Ushijima, because it won’t go away aahh. 

So Ushijima has watched one of karasuno’s games and he was surprised that karasuno accepts omegas in the team. I like to think shiratorizawa only accepts alphas and sometimes betas (if they are really good) in their team. Of course Hinata stood out, with his hair and height. He’s surprised the pup got accepted because not only is he an omega, he’s really short and his skills and techniques are clumsy. He watched him the entire time and he was really amused and even slightly impressed with Hinata. As short and as inexperienced Hinata is at volleyball, Ushijima couldn’t help but admire the little pup’s dedication to win against taller opponents. 

After the game, Ushijima had the chance to see the omega pup closer in the restroom. Hinata was with another omega from their team, and although the omega with Hinata was prettier and had a more mature physique, Ushijima found that he enjoyed Hinata’s scent more, and found him more endearing. It was only when the cub started shaking did he realize that he had been staring at him for a really long time. The other omega with Hinata was glaring at him, and looked very protective of the omega pup. Ushijima realized he couldn’t say a word to the pup because of the older omega. He could just easily overpower the older omega but Ushijima realized he didn’t want to bother himself with it. It’s not like he would see the pup again, and he really wasn’t sure what he would tell Hinata anyway.

Ok, let’s fast forward to the part where Ushijima realized he wanted to court Hinata yea. So he goes to Karasuni (lol, where does he even live? i hope somewhere not far and still in the same prefecture)

Volleyball practice is over. He sees Hinata with his teammates and when he approaches them, their captain goes into defense alpha mode. And actually, he wants to fight Daichi to prove his strength and dominance to Hinata, even though he’s not really the type who looks for a brawl. But if he fights Daichi, Hinata will hate him, since Daichi is like the head alpha of their team and the closest alpha father figure (what am i saying??) Hinata has. (Hinata is an omega born from a beta pair). He tries to talk to Daichi and thankfully, the head omega is also there to cool off their captain’s head. So when he states his purpose for going there, everyone looks so surprised and at the same time confused because they aren’t sure if he’s serious. He’s so frank and expressionless like ???. Anyway, Hinata was the most surprised, hiding behind Suga and watching him with cautious wary eyes. 

The first person to react was Kageyama (ohohohohoh~) and he was like you can’t court him!!! And that’s when Ushijima knows he has a rival, a young alpha whom he can easily overpower and dominate. And Daichi was like ‘he’s right. You can’t court him, unless hinata says so.’ Because Daichi doesn’t want to decide for Hinata even though he is the head alpha and is a bit suspicious of Ushijima. So everyone looks at Hinata, who is just shaking and lost and confused and is making whimpering noises. Daichi being Daichi worries over Hinata and tells Ushijima to just come back for Hinata’s answer, so he leaves even though Ushijima’s instinct tells him to mark his mate so that alpha pup won’t touch his omega. He glares at Kageyama who also glares back before shifting his gaze to Hinata and says a few words that may have or may have not scared the little pup. I don’t think Ushijima knows he seems really scary. 

That’s it so far, I guess. Ahaha. So I have this headcanon that Ushijima and Kageyama are thoroughbred alphas. Alphas who came from an alpha/omega pair (same with omegas). They are superior and better than alphas who aren’t thoroughbreds. Thoroughbred omegas are Oikawa, Noya and Suga. Thoroughbred omegas are more fertile and are the ‘most-sought after’ omegas. so they are very attractive. Some thoroughbred omegas are fast and are stronger than ordinary omegas (Noya). Usually though, at least from what I’ve read in most omegaverse fics, thoroughbred omegas are really submissive but look at those three. Anyway, maybe in bed or something. Aha.
