We’ve talked a lot about the repeated deaths, but that’s not all that can happen in this kind of situation. What kind of injuries do you think the IPRE dealt with until the year was up and they were reset?

Magnus loses an arm. It’s an early cycle and he shouldn’t have had to make that kind of sacrifice, but he did it to help someone else and no one is really surprised. No one knows what to do - should they offer to help him with things? Would that be insulting? When Magnus comes far too close to losing his other arm in the same year, he learns to ask for help when he needs it.

Merle is too close to an explosion and loses his hearing. Lucretia offers him one of her notebooks, and it’s both a wonderful idea and a mistake because he uses it both to communicate and to leave notes all over the ship. They’re very dad-like notes, commanding various crew members to pick up this mess or go do some chore. When they try to argue Merle just shakes his head and motions helplessly at his ears, even though they are writing him a note in return. It’s not long afterwards that they reach a world that has sign language and everyone learns the basics. 

Lup has been burned, badly, but it takes a while before she lets anyone help her manage the pain because she doesn’t want to feel better when she can’t do that for Taako because he died in a fucking fire. It’s Barry who finally catches her with her guard down late one night, and he and Merle find a combination of cooling spells and herbs that make the pain (the physical pain) more bearable.

Davenport is blinded, and for a while he won’t accept any help. He’s the captain, he’ll figure it out on his own. He tries to pilot the ship with muscle memory and crashes it somewhere remote, and he just screams in frustration at losing the one thing he’s the best at, even if it’s only for a year. He’s quiet for a while, not interacting and going through the motions as well as he can, until Magnus wanders into the cockpit and asks what the big, red button is for. Davenport explains, more of the crew wander in, and he ends telling all of them about the ins and outs of their vessel. It’s a good day, and after that (both that year and after) he spends less time in the cockpit and more time with his family.

Lucretia can’t walk anymore, not easily and then not at all, so Magnus offers to give her piggyback rides everywhere she wants to go whenever she wants. Lup and Barry make her a chair (permanently levitating so that stairs aren’t an issue), but she finds she likes the company while exploring the new towns. She takes up Magnus’s offer more often than anyone expects her to.

A landslide that takes Lup catches Taako, too; he takes a serious blow to the head. When he wakes up he doesn’t speak, and doesn’t really look at anyone. But he listens to them, he can hear them, and eventually Lucretia picks up some journals and sits with him. At first she reads, but eventually she just shares interesting things that happened that day and gossip; even though his expression doesn’t change she can tell he’s enjoying the conversation from the way his ears flick around with as much movement as always. When the year is done they still gossip, but it’s never one-sided. (Except when it is, years and years later. Taako has a bad day and Lucretia offers to read to him, and he lets her. It’s a little sign that things are… better. Improving.)

One year there are days Barry hurts too much to walk on his own, and Lucretia’s chair makes a second appearance. Lup isn’t there, or Magnus or Merle, so the ship is quiet more often than not… until Taako and Barry go barreling down the hallway together clinging to the chair and targeting Davenport of Lucretia. It shouldn’t be funny but it is - one light and fun moment during a particularly bad cycle.

TT! I know on the internet you are androgynous, which like, good job dude, you are hot feminine and hot masculine and wow. Anyway, I was wondering if you ever had to come out with gender or if you identify as Cis-gender?

(( OOC: I’m not a huge fan of the labels/identity movement, both with gender and sexuality. I tend to feel that it’s detracting from the core issues of the gender equality movement. So no, I’ve never “come out” as anything. I just enjoy dressing in the clothes I like to wear, acting the way I want to act, doing what I want to do… and letting people come to their own conclusions. )) 

I super love the lightning thief musical and be more chill so I made,,, a crossover,, or I’m working on one at least ?? obviously I’ve only drawn these three right now, but I’ve got my personal hcs for everyone else already :0

After Denmark’s 2–1 defeat of Germany, the Danish fans in the stands at Sparta Stadion also started sing “Schade, Deutschland, alles ist vorbei” (”Pity, Germany, it’s all over”).

America: Can’t believe I’m actually going to be the mature one but–can you two maybe stop bickering for a bit so we can work….? 

England: We don’t bicker enough that you need to say anything!

France: What are you talking about we bicker all the time!! 

England: You’re only saying that because you start all the arguments–

France: Me?!

America: Guys…

France: Who started the 100 years war?! Who’s fault was that?

England: Yours!!

France: And Brexit?!

America:….aaahhhh…
