include at least one aro/ace and a demi/genderfluid character because those communities are rarely represented in games
…guys, I love you, but please give it a rest. My inbox is full of demands about every aspect of this project and it’s exhausting. I appreciate your feedback! But I’m just trying to make a cool game that lots of people can enjoy. I’m not going to be able to please every single person, even if I’d really love to. No matter what I do, somebody will be upset because things aren’t exactly how they hoped. Let’s come to terms with that.
I’m doing the best I can; there’s going to be a variety of characters, and you’ll be able to play as whichever identity you’d like. But I’m not here to make Gender Theory: The Game. It’s a surreal game about fun creepy monsters, and I’m begging you: let it be a game about monsters.
Long John Silver is not a man. Long John Silver is a cracked jaw, opening before an endless, cavernous pit. Long John Silver is a monster’s right hand – black with viscera, white with bone. Long John Silver is a rabid dog, held on a short leash by dead tyrant’s skeletal fist. Long John Silver is not a man. Long John Silver is a man.
Sidon looked positively despondent these past few months. He had been wrecked with stress and worry from the second Calamity fell. Of course it was one of the greatest reliefs– his sister, as well as all of the other champions could finally rest in peace, and the now Queen Zelda no longer had to fight one on one with the abomination.
But then days turned to weeks turned to months and there had been no sign of Link in the domain or anywhere for that matter.
The rumor mill churned sickeningly, and conjured tar dark images of the Hero bleeding to death in front of Hyrule Castle’s ruins after his victory. Horrid images of Link caving under the severity of his injuries bread with the overwhelming doubt in Sidon’s mind until it nearly crushed him under its overbearing weight.
But his worrying turned out to be all for naught when Link came striding into the domain with a smile warmer than the sun on his face. He looked tired beyond belief, but otherwise no worse for ware. His bright blue eyes were pulled heavy with deep set bags and his hair was pulled high on his head in a messy ponytail. The relief was evident when he slid of his horse and walked the short distance into Sidon’s arms. He realized then that Link’s disposition was caused by Zelda’s completely uncalloused get-up-and-go attitude. She introduced herself quaintly to Sidon, and gave Link a quirky kind of smile as she inspected the both of them. He turned red under her gaze but said nothing in response.
After that, she had dismissed herself to a council with the King. It had been a bit of a haphazard job after that. Zelda and Dorephan were quite nearly in constant company with Muzu, and Sidon had been briefed every now and then. Link apparently had a list longer than Inogo Bridge of tasks he had to accomplish for the Queen, which had him rising early and retiring far later than should be considered healthy. It wasn’t Sidon’s place to question Zelda’s judgement, however he had been itching for even a moment of her Knight’s time since they had arrived.
He got his wish, however, about an hour before they were scheduled to leave for Death Mountain to reestablish the relationship between the Hylians and the Gorons. Sidon and Link had been sitting on the shores of the reservoir together in a stale silence. Link had mumbled an apology- something about missed opportunities, but frankly Sidon was glad that they even got this.
That’s when he said it, “You’ll come back and visit, right?” And it sounded disappointed and broken on his own ears.
Link’s smile turned sad as he apologized once again.
“I didn’t mean to make it seem like you were obligated to spend time with me,” Sidon forced out almost immediately. “I was just looking forward to hearing about your battle and your plan from here.”
“No, I get it,” Link signed. “I didn’t mean to take so long with the shit Zelda made me do, and I was really looking forward to seeing you once this was all over.”
Sidon grinned at him as he slid into the water of the lake.
“I promise to head straight here the second Zelda gives me the okay.”
“And I promise to make you as happy as I can once you are able to finally settle down,” Sidon purred.
Link absentmindedly ran a hand across the intricate silver band that wrapped his throat and craddled Sidon’s sapphire.
“Doesn’t this already promised that?” Link laughed. “I love you,” he signed.
bts react ෴ their s/o backhugs them in the morning
anon asked: Hello sweetie, how BTS would react if they were brushing there teeth in the morning and there GF back-hug them and rubbing there stomach sleeply? This so much fluff for my heartue 😭💜
sorry that this was so short ): im trying to get to other requests so that i feel less pressured when i get to do the rest of what’s left in my inbox. i hope this is an enjoyable read
⁂ seokjin: jin was half asleep when he got out of the bed to brush his teeth. his eyelids kept lowering and so he didn’t even notice that his eyes were closed as he continued to thoroughly clean his mouth. jin’s movements were slow and lazy, and his head hung low above the sink when he was ready to spit out his toothpaste. while rinsing his mouth, he felt a familiar pair of arms wrap around his waist and a chin poke at his shoulder. a smile had made its way onto his lips as he washed his face, your hand lightly patting at his stomach while you buried your face against his back.
⁂ namjoon: at first, namjoon was sleepy when he began to brush his teeth, but once he witnessed you entering the bathroom, he became wide awake. he gazed at you through the mirror and with a fond smile, he rinsed his mouth and brush when you bumped into his back, only to wrap your arms around him when you realized who it was. his heart swelled as you waited for him to finish freshening up, and even swished mouthwash longer than necessary to have you brushing your fingers along his stomach under his shirt just for a few more seconds. when he was done, he turned around and hugged you to his chest.
⁂ yoongi: yoongi wasn’t one to be disturbed in the morning as he was doing something, but he was quite pleased when he felt your body curl around his back as he brushed his teeth. the warmth of your body against his was a comforting feeling and he relished in the moment whenever you decided to give him an embrace. as he hummed to himself, he let go of the bathroom counter to pet your hand that was on his stomach, moving in a circling motion. you kept rubbing his stomach while you rested your head on his back so that you wouldn’t fall asleep against him, and yoongi found himself smiling happily, his toothbrush hanging from his mouth as he gazed at your messy hair that was poking out from behind his shoulder.
⁂ hoseok: “mm – hello.” he’d say with mirth in his eyes. his vision was still a bit bleary from waking up from his comfortable slumber, but he still managed to place his gaze on your messy bed hair, your arms snug around his waist as he pushed his hair back from his forehead. there was a fond smile on his face as he looked at you through the mirror. a sleepy pout made an appearance on your pretty visage as you rubbed hoseok’s stomach to keep yourself awake and the only thing your boyfriend could do was laugh and finish brushing his teeth before he’s turning around to crush you in a loving hug.
⁂ taehyung: taehyung was leaning back against the bathroom counter as he brushed his teeth so when you walked inside the bathroom, the boy was nearly attacked with a mouthful of your hair when you launched yourself at him. you buried your face against his chest with a sigh and grumbled as he pet the back of your head with an amused chuckle. “i missed you.” you had said which only resulted in a raspy hum as a response from your boyfriend. when you loosened your arms around him, he turned around to rinse his mouth and finish washing his face. out of habit, you rubbed taehyung’s stomach as it flexed when he yawned. with a lopsided smile, he turned around again and pet your head, kissing your forehead. “nae sarang, joeun ahchim. (good morning, my love)”
⁂ jimin: “that tickles,” he whines through brushing his teeth as your fingertips brushed along his tummy. with a little squirm, jimin tried to get you to release him by swaying side to side, but to no avail. you were stuck to his back like tape and you weren’t letting go of him soon. his backside was so comfortable to you and you couldn’t find it in you to release your boyfriend from your arms. he grumbled to himself as you lovingly kissed his shoulder blade, your hands happily rubbing at jimin’s tummy as you squished your cheek against his shirt. once he rinsed his mouth and dried his face off, he turned around and attacked you with kisses so that you would get distracted enough to stop touching his stomach.
⁂ jungkook: with his hand gripping the edge of the counter, jungkook brushed his hair back from his forehead while thoroughly cleaning his teeth with his brush. bobbing his head to a beat that was stuck inside his head, you had walked inside the bathroom so that you wouldn’t scare him because of a sudden noise. with his back faced you, you sighed happily to yourself and slowly leaned and rested there, your arms loosely curled above his hips. he looked down curiously to see what was going on and with a smile slowly gracing his features. he rested his hand on top of yours that was rubbing his stomach and with one hand, somehow rinsed his mouth and washed his face before turning around to bring you into a comfortable embrace.
K so everyone talks about mac and dennis holding hands at the bow in the nightman cometh but something I find to be very pure is in the final dayman song they all sing together when they say "friendship" and dennis points at mac and smiles... just.. very pure
when ur in love and the only way u can express ur feelings is thru exaggerated gestures during a musical performance w/ the object of ur affection
“Jesus Christ you are so fucking infuriating, Haz.” You and Harrison had been arguing for the last half an hour. “You know what we agreed. It was you who said it for God’s sake!” About three months ago, you began a special friendship with Harrison. You’d been drunk at Tom’s birthday party and the next morning you found yourself in Harrison’s bed. After that you met up with him multiple times a week to have sex. It was a no strings attached kind of deal. You’d promised each other there would be absolutely zero feelings involved. It wasn’t that you didn’t like him, he was your friend, but, my God, that boy knew how to wind you up. He loved to tease you about your apparent feelings for him, no matter how many times you told him you were just friends. A part of you knew he was only joking, but that’s not to say it didn’t get to you. Why did it bother you so much?
“You know,” Harrison said, raising his left eyebrow. “You’re so fucking hot when you’re mad.” He could see you were unimpressed, but it was like he got off on it. He loved making you uncomfortable with his teasing. “All I wanna do right now is shut your lying mouth by kissing you. You’re lying because I know you have feelings for me.” Dodging the cushion you threw at him, Harrison continued. “I want to fuck you right here on this sofa, and then I want to fuck you over there on the kitchen counter,” he pointed to his left. “And then, I want to fuck you in my bed - the same place I fucked you this morning.”
The way people send callout asks with zero context or proof (and the way a lot of people who get them take them at face value without looking into it themselves) I could hop in someone’s inbox and go anon and be like “just so you know, so-and-so sucks toes” and they’d have the swat team busting down so-and-so’s door in 2 hours or less
There are a dozen of you, so I thought it was easier to just try and answer all of your questions / concerns in one post.
This is of course just a thought for how the TG/BTY being released around the same time thing could go. I don’t know if it will.
I do mainly think it is to further the ‘underdog’ idea. You have the ‘face’ of the band, the ‘most famous one’ the one Louis mentioned by name as having it slightly easier in the Observer article, releasing a song at the same time as you….And it is very likely that Louis’ single will do better than TG (I think that is intentional on their part, in terms of choosing TG, an album track rather than a new song, and a song about the two of them - talk about ‘pick someone supportive’).
What a great way to have the GP sit up and take notice of you? The underdog beating the superstar in a head to head chart battle? We might not like it, but I believe that they have both agreed to it for the greater good, and that it is very clever.
But Louis doesn’t need such dirty PR to succeed? The Louis we see and the Louis the public see are not the same. That is because of years of negative PR from his own team. To me The Observer piece was the start of turning that around, what I describe above makes sense to me as the next step.
But it’s not fair on Harry, why should he ‘sacrifice’ the success of TG? Two Ghosts is not a traditional summer single, and it’s an album track that most of us have already got. Of course people will stream it, but new purchases? Sure some, but not enough to have it go to number 1 and they know that. As well as assisting in the ‘underdog’ angle, TG will attract some new fans from Dunkirk cross promo, but in my mind that’s to give the album a boost, not to get a number one. If they wanted a number one they’d release a track that’s not even on the album, we’d all buy it, they’d do proper promo etc.
It’s so ugly, urgh, if it happens I am going to stay off tumblr - /If/ it happens, it’s not a real competition, it’s an engineered one for narrative purposes. Harry has already had a number one with SOTT and it’s looking like it’s going to be nominated for a Grammy. This is Louis’ time to shine and I think the added ‘competition’ angle feeds into that nicely. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
I think that pretty much covers everything you’ve all said/asked. We’ll see, it may well not pan out like this at all. It just feels like it is setting up for it to me.
But at the end of the day, they are a team, success for one is success for the other, and I would much rather them co-ordinate something they are both comfortable with.
so, for your botw zelink fanfic, can you maybe do like a re-imagining of the scene where Link tells Zelda the reason why he doesn't talk ( as stated in the diary )?
Today was the day. After the events of yesterday, Zelda had come to the realization that she needed to talk things out with her appointed knight. With Link. There was miscommunication between them, if that’s what you could call it. He never spoke a word, and that was probably why she misinterpreted him so badly. But she assumed the worst of him and let it show, and now was the time to put things right.
After she got dressed and left her room, she waited for her knight to arrive. Usually she would go on without him, uneager to have him join her, but not today. So when he finally arrived, the surprise in his eyes was unmistakeable.
“Good morning.” She said, and he nodded to her. “Link, could I talk to you privately?” She clasped her hands in front of her, fingers fidgeting together nervously. She had thought over what she was going to say all night, sleeping restlessly over it. Now it was time that she put all that had transpired between them to rest.
By all means go ahead and say Harry has flopped when he's likely to hit number 1 in the Us and Uk this week. I don't know what your definition of flopping is, but maybe wait and see what the others do in comparison before making any predictions. And please also go ahead and block me, prove you aren't willing to stand up to your own convictions. I'm all for different opinions but making bitchy hate comments for like wasn't something I thought you did.
Please compare the first week sales of “Pillowtalk” and “SOTT” and get back to me.
Please compare the charting history of “Pillowtalk” and “SOTT” and get back to me.
Please compare the sales of “Sweet Creature” vs “Slow Hands” and get back to me.
Please compare the first live performances of “SOTT” and “This Town” and “Just Hold On” and “It’s You” and get back to me.
Account for the album padding from the tour ticket/album sales and compare the first week sales of Mind of Mine and Harry Styles and get back to me.
Please compare radio play for “SOTT,” “This Town,” and any of Zayn’s work and get back to me.
Take in consideration that Harry Styles was marketed as the next Adele when no one else in 1D was, look at his numbers objectively, and get back to me.
instead of being smart and doing my homework I went on a date and so now I have piles of homework which means part three of Excuse My French won’t be posted for a while sadly…I wanted to post it today but I don’t think it’s gonna happen cause I’m bad at time management lmao. but here’s a snippet!
When you got to school, a few minutes earlier than expected, you were shocked to see Peter leaning against your locker with two coffees in his hands, one probably for Ned.
Something seemed off, though. He was tapping his foot, like he was waiting for something, and you didn’t think it was you. His eyes kept darting around the hall as though he was seeing it for the first time, and that’s when you noticed his glasses were gone.
When you stepped up to him, you had to crane your neck up a bit to look him in the face. No way was he that tall two days ago? He saw you coming closer and grinned, stepping away from the locker so you could open it.
“Hey?” You raised your eyebrows at the sight of him. He looked…different. You weren’t even sure how to fully describe it.
“Hey back,” he shot you a confident smile, which made you even more uneasy. He was usually so nervous and awkward, but maybe that had changed since he kissed you?
“You do not look sick at all,” you laughed lightly, poking his arm. With a little shock, you realized it was rock-hard. Since when did he have muscles? “And where are your glasses?”
“Oh, uh,” he stuttered a bit, falling back into the normal Peter you were used to, “Got contacts, felt like a change? And I feel much better now.”
“That is good,” you smiled at him sincerely, “Sorry I got you sick.”
He shrugged, “I don’t think we had the same thing.”
You wanted to question him about that, but the first bell rang, interrupting your thoughts. Peter slid his free hand into yours, tugging you lightly.
“Come on, we don’t want to be late, plus Ned will be mad if he didn’t get his drink,” he gave you a crooked grin, and you smiled back, holding his hand a bit tighter as you followed him to first period. Maybe this change wasn’t so bad?
For the rest of the day, Peter was acting pretty normal - aside from the change in his appearance and how he seemed to be waiting for something all day, he was still that nerdy kid you were beginning to love.
that was a long “snippet” lmao but here’s a cute part from part three :)
honestly what i’ve been asking myself for the last 5 hours i’ve been so restless with love for jimin i’m just passing time by crying and making edits but i figured one thing - don’t play serendipity on a good quality sound system. don’t do it. it’s deadly. i’m typing from the grave
