listen, Anakin “I will do anything that you ask” Skywalker would literally never try to guilt Padme into going away with him for the weekend after she says no to do work instead. He might whine a bit, but it would be like a lighthearted whine, not meant to be serious, and he definitely wouldn’t get mad. He’d back off and respect her wishes
Context: i play a male dwarf barbarian in a party with a female gnome wizard, male elf ranger, female half orc fighter, and a male human cleric. My dwarf has no facial hair because of story reasons and long braided hair. The cleric grew up in a human-only town and had never seen a dwarf before. So he was convinced that no beard meant he was female, and has continued to hit on my dwarf every chance he got. My dwarf, after a whole in game year of this constant flirting (he barely began to take notice) decides he’s had enough.
The following takes place as we are shopping in a busy marketplace.
Cleric: Oh look love,*holds up a jewel necklace* i got a gift for you!
Dwarf: Dont want it.
Cleric: Whats wrong love? You usually like it when i buy you things.
Me(ooc): We’re in the middle of a marketplace right?
DM: Yup, middle of the day, tons of people around you.
Dwarf: IM NOT YOUR GODDAMN-UH *pulls down pants* I have a dong so there!
Party(ooc): Starts to loose their shit.
Dm: Make an intimidation check.
Party: *Hysteria intensifies*
DM: (cleric) you find youself blushing at the sight of his dong. (Dwarf) Role for seduction.
Me: Oh shit, here we go.
*rolls a 18*
Cleric(ooc): Im a cleric having some very unholy thoughts!
Cleric: I dont care. *grabs my dwarf’s hands* My feelings for you will never change. *kisses dwarf*
Me(ooc): Im…I..I have nothing. I literally cant think of anything to do.
DM: As this beautiful display is happening, surrounded by dozens of civillians with various expressions, the light bouncing off of (dwarf)’s dwarven butt cheeks catches the eyes of a guard.
Guard: Hey pull up those pants your under arrest.
Half orc: Back off this has been months in the making!
*rolls a nat 20 intimidation*
Wizard: I cast an illusion of (dwarf)’s dong ‘reacting’.
Me(ooc): Too late.
Long story short they are still together and my dwarf is ring hunting.
percival never cared much for gods. divine deities that people blindly placed faith in through every day life and strife, who they would pray to when times grew dark for them. his fellow human’s blind faith in something that he cannot comprehend and simply does not make intellectual sense to him never fails to make him laugh.
and so percy buries himself in his books. if people wanted to follow something blindly, let them. it wasn’t his job to judge.
the book i’ve been waiting for, for like 6 weeks, has finally arrived. and i was unaware that it had won an award for bisexual rep, and it says so on the back of the book and don’t ask me to explain why but i cried about it
“Neh, Sasuke, is it true that it’s physically impossible for someone to tickle themselves?”
Sasuke shifted a bit from his slouched position on the couch right across from the recliner Naruto was currently lounging on, the other’s feet propped up against the coffee table.They sat in silence as Sasuke took a few seconds to allow the sudden question to properly sink in, blinking the sleepiness from his heavy lids.
He aimed an unimpressed glare in Naruto’s general direction, brushing a loose strand of black hair from his cheek. “I’m not even going to answer that, usuratonkachi,” he said, sitting up. “And get your filthy shoes off my furniture.”
Naruto huffed and pouted, but grudgingly complied and let his sandal-clad feet slide from the small table. “Why do you always have to be so mean? I was only asking a question. I’m actually genuinely curious, I’ve never tried tickling myself before,” he remarked, looking down at his torso.
Sasuke’s glare become impossibly more unimpressed as his mind began to fill with irritation. “It’s not my fault you choose to be an idiot and a slob all the time. And in case you didn’t realize, your stupid question kept me from my nap. I’m tired as hell after that long mission; not everyone has your inexhaustible energy, and you can’t expect me to handle every one of your antics whenever you see fit.”
Just as he went to shut his eyelids again, Sasuke had half a second to brace himself as the couch dipped underneath him and the breath was abruptly knocked from his lungs. He snapped his head up only to come inches from a grinning, triumphant face.
“Lighten up already, teme, you should know by now I never listen to a word you say when you go off on your lecturing tirades. Let’s experiment on each other!” Naruto urged, enthusiastically pulling off his light t-shirt.
Head spinning with bewilderment and flaring anger, Sasuke latched onto the broad shoulders of the blonde who was comfortably seated right on top of him and shoved. He was further infuriated when the body above him refused to budge. “Get off me, idiot!” he demanded pushing again. He should’ve known his efforts would be in vain, though. Once Naruto had an opponent pinned, it was nearly impossible for anyone to get loose, much less throw him off.
Naruto’s grin widened, pleased to watch the Uchiha’s fruitless efforts and only barely containing his laughter as the other’s usually pale face became flushed with red. “Don’t act like you don’t like what you see,” a tan hand gestured down at his own bare chest,”I’m some hot stuff.” He just barely caught the volatile fist that was thrown at his face, some of the mirth temporarily melting from his expression.
“Not when you just got back from a mission covered in sweat and smelling rancid,” Sasuke replied with a crinkling of his nose, giving up on his attempts to shove the blonde off but not allowing any of the hostility to slip from his eyes.
His insulting words didn’t serve to dampen Naruto’s enthusiasm. In fact, they instead seemed to spark a sinister gleam in his wide blue eyes that had been missing before. “Well, maybe I can’t tickle myself, but I know you’re ticklish as hell, Sasuke.”
He gave the Uchiha no time to react and aimed his hands straight for his stomach, wasting no time in repeatedly digging his fingers into the other man’s gut. Sasuke nearly bit through his bottom in an effort to contain himself, but the act of tickling coupled with Naruto’s gusto swiftly overwhelmed him and he let out a choked giggle, cringing as he felt his very pride disintegrate before him. This lead to an entire series of poorly-contained laughs. All the while, however, Sasuke was plotting Naruto’s slow, torturous death in his head.
At one point, Naruto was so preoccupied with laughing at Sasuke’s laughing that he gave the Uchiha an accidental opening, and oh, how quickly Sasuke lunged for it. Knowing full-well Naruto himself was as ticklish as Sasuke, he reached one arm and began tickling him back, effectively catching him off-guard. Suddenly Naruto found himself on his back with Sasuke attacking him with twice as much vigor as he had been attacked with.
Naruto’s laughs rang out with much less restraint and filled their entire shared apartment with sound. Somehow Sasuke never ceased giggling himself, relishing Naruto’s helplessness as the tables were turned on him. Once the Uchiha began to tire, breathy puffs sweeping across Naruto’s face beneath him, his hands were caught once again, although this time he had no resistance left in him. His breath caught in his throat as he was swiftly kissed by his lover, lips parting automatically to allow the other more access. Naruto’s hand flew up to pull Sasuke’s chin closer and deepen the kiss. The sweetness of the act only lasted a couple of seconds though, Naruto’s body jerking along with with the giggle he released directly into Sasuke’s mouth. Consequently, Sasuke let out one of his own, and the pair broke down once more, eventually winding up in a boneless heap on the floor.
I wish that Rick became a mentor-like figure for teen superheroes, especially for the Young Avengers and Avengers Academy kids. I know that he’d probably be as useful as paperweight given that he doesn’t have any superpowers, and that idea would probably be ripping off Young Justice (i.e. Snapper Carr), but it could work!
Just imagine him telling them stories about his adventures with the Hulk and ROM, and the whole Kree-Skrull War. Or teaching combat acrobatics like Captain America did when he was around their age and everything related to the superhero community - history, powers, strengths, weaknesses, rogue gallery, trivia facts not found on the Wikipedia page. Or form a support group for teen heroes who are orphaned, neglected, or abused, kinda like what he did briefly with
The Loners in The Runaways before Marvel dropped the series.
tl;dr “So much wasted potential” should be Marvel’s new slogan.
They should know he's a guy by now but anyways how are u doing today ?
// Well between dealing with a handful of people stealing, tracing, and otherwise reposting my art, telling me I’m wrong for politely calling them out and handling it like an adult in DMs, trying to help handle the #savebendy bullshit, people ripping off my designs for Lendy & Acute & Alice, having my characters misgendered repeatedly after already making a post on the matter, being insulted directly to my face on a handful of servers, handling some personal drama, and generally feeling alone in groups of people (not their fault) I’ve been… okay. Mostly just extremely tired and admittedly a bit pissy. I haven’t hardly eaten this week and today I can’t stop so if I don’t post a lot its because I’ve made myself sick, sorry in advance.
