So Shun watches this Japanese YouTuber who literally just opens a bunch of trading cards and nothing else, and one of his videos was him getting a thank you gift for the shop owner who he gets his cards from and one of them was an original timewalk and the card owner looks at it and was like “lol what is this???????” And the YouTube guy was like “idk I don’t play Magic?????????” And they looked it up and were like “oh, I guess it’s expensive and I don’t know what it is????? It looks ugly????¿????????” And the entire time I felt like I was having a stroke.
“ We walk, we laugh, we spend our time Walking by the ocean side Our hands are gently intertwined A feeling I just can’t describe All this time we spent alone, Thinking we could not belong To something so damn beautiful So damn beautiful
After discovering his evangelist preacher parents molesting children from their congregation, Obadiah Archer is captured by his parents, who attempt to murder him and destroy evidence of their crimes by tying him up in their house and setting fire to it. Archer does his best to call upon his faith in God to give him the power to save himself, promising God to bring his parents to justice should God give him the power to get free. He manages to escape, but blacks out from the smoke, and has a near-death experience. Archer sneaks out of the hospital and eventually stows away on a freighter, eventually making his way to a Buddhist monastery in Ladakh, high in the Himalayas. The monks observe that he has extraordinary control over his body, able to perform difficult martial arts moves with ease. He also displays flawless skill with a bow and arrow, which Archer says is an after-effect of his near-death experience. Now a young man, he returns to the United States to bring his parents to justice, as well as any other evildoers he meets. After arriving in California, Archer learns that his parents were arrested and imprisoned a few weeks after he left the States. His purpose lost, he wanders the streets, uncertain of what to do. Eventually, he encounters a scruffy-looking vagrant sitting on the sidewalk who calls himself simply “Armstrong”, and asks for spare change. Because no one raised in a Buddhist monastery can refuse to give alms, Archer hands over his last five dollars. Impressed with Archer’s generosity, Armstrong takes him for a beer, and regales him with his past exploits, which span thousands of years. Armstrong is a 10,000-year-old immortal who possesses superhuman strength, near-invulnerability, and the ability to heal quickly from injuries. They debut in Archer & Armstrong #0 (April 10, 1992).
OKAY SO AS YOU ALL KNOW I DID PLAY YGO LONG BEFORE I PLAYED MAGIC.
and while chatting with @zombieella I remembered one of my absolute favourite creature… And take a guess:
It was at the time the only card that fucking Timewalked ( i think it still is?)…. So ofc Narset became my commander…
An extremely fun Coincidence: In the anime, the antagonist who uses the Arcana Force-series is also the voice actor that does the voice of Dio in Jojo’s bizarre adventure, and this was his supposed Ace-card. SO YOU COULD LITERALLY HEAR DIO SHOUT “ZA WARUDO“ LONG BEFORE JOJO AIRED …. THAT IS P COOL

I looted the Swift White Hawkstrider in Timewalking Magister’s Terrace just now, but I already have the mount. Luckily, I was able to trade it to someone else in the group! I’m really glad I got to make someone elses day better instead of just deleting such a rare mount.
