What she wouldn’t give for Smoky, her big gray cat, to throw himself on the Monopoly board…just so she wouldn’t have to suffer this horrific defeat to one Bucky Barnes.
She held her breath and rolled the dice, willing them to fall on double sixes so she could bypass the death trap that included Bucky’s Boardwalk, Park Place and the three green properties. All with red hotels of course.
Darcy sighed heavily when they landed on double fours, placing her smack dab on Park Place.
Bucky grinned deviously. “You know…I’m willing to accept other payment methods, Darcy…’
She raised her eyebrows. “What’s the exchange rate of kisses to Monopoly dollars?”
Hi! Huge fan of Boardwalk Empire here. I wanted to start watching Making Of The Mob but I was scrolling through your tag about it and... It's so bad? I mean, historically?
anon it is so bad. so bad. like. look. listen. i said this in one of my MotM write up posts at the time, but no one expects shows like Boardwalk Empire or Mob City to be 100% history all the time. no one. no one who has any understanding of what the words “historical fiction” mean actually expects utter dedication to the historical events it’s based on. it’s fiction and meant to entertain and they take liberties with the history to service the story they wanna tell and if they didn’t it’d be weird!
but MotM is/was supposed to bea documentary. it should not be taking liberties with the history, especially when those liberties are things which were EASILY DISPROVED by shit I, a shitty 24-year-old with nothing more than a bachelor degree, the internet, and an unfortunate obsession,managed to get my hands on literal years before the show was even conceived. they skip over key historical details and fabricate others, they fall into the only-Italians-matter trap and lean on some really unfortunate antisemitic stereotypes as they do so, and a bunch of the talking heads they have on there aren’t anywhere near qualified to be talking about mob history, I’m sorry, playing a gangster in a movie does not mean you know what real gangsters were like decades before you were born. anyway. yeah. it’s Not Good.
for the ocean ask thing, could you do sea glass and boardwalk?
sea glass: what do you consider to be your best physical feature?
oh hmm, i’ve always liked my waist and my feet for some reason??? my waist is pretty hourglass shaped which i’ve always liked about myself, and my feet are just like really long and skinny and generally just petitely shaped???
boardwalk: who is your favourite fictional couple?
this one is hard! but probablyyy marceline/PB from adventure time or ruby/sapphire from steven universe. generally just ladies loving ladies. OH also cosima/delphine from orphan black! that’s the one i probably feel most emotionally connected to.

“More than anything I wish I could go on a cute date to The Boardwalk and Downtown Disney. I once had a dream I went with my "soul mate” to those places and it was the best dream I’ve ever had. When I was little I saw a very happy couple who looked like they didn’t have a care in the world there. Disney makes me happy without fail, and so did the one time I was in love. More than anything would I love to combine the two someday"
