ultimate technology

Technology master Bakura is fine and dandy and all

But I’m more of a fan of the idea that 3000-5000 years stuck in a ring caused Bakura to have the ultimate case of technologically illiterate grandma

For example

“Marik why can’t I go on the Internet”

“Because your laptop is updating”

“What does that have to do with anything”

“It’s updating. You have to wait until it’s done.”

“Wait. I’ll just turn it off and on. That usually works.”

“Bakura no!”

“wHY IS IT BEEPING AT ME???”

“BECAUSE YOU- oh, forget it.”

Evil: God isn’t interested in technology. He cares nothing for the microchip or the silicon revolution. Look how he spends his time, forty-three species of parrots! Nipples for men!

Robert: Slugs.

Evil: Slugs! HE created slugs! They can’t hear. They can’t speak. They can’t operate machinery. Are we not in the hands of a lunatic?

Often, your name is WENDY TESTABURGER. However, in this particular moment, and a number of others to follow, your name is WENDYL TESTABURGER.

You are quite the SOCIAL ACTIVIST, or at least you were before Earth was destroyed. You now spend your time as your session’s SYLPH OF SPACE, keeping the balance and harmony between your fellow players to the best of your ability. Beyond that, you are tasked with the creation of the GENESIS FROG. Your primary problem in this task is that all present frogs suffer from DEBILITATING NEUROTOXINS, because your planet is drenched with HIGHLY-LETHAL LIQUID MERCURY. You were unable to leave your house for a week after the start of your session without alchemizing the what you call the ULTIMATE OPUS in TRANSGENDER TECHNOLOGY, the MATERBINDER.

Almost all of your FELLOW PLAYERS have refused to listen to you or even offer you help. Only two are truly concerned with your VILE AND BURDENING PLIGHT. Your HERO OF LIFE has worked tirelessly to keep the FLORA AND FAUNA of your planet alive, and your HERO OF HEART oversees your frog-breeding. The Hero of Heart was once your boyfriend, but things turned quite sour.

They always do.

Although you work hard on this one task, it cannot compare to your civic duty: Keeping tabs on the HERO OF TIME. If you can even call him that. If left to his own devices, he will ultimately DESTROY THE SESSION ITSELF. And a good SYLPH cannot allow that.

You are known as the SWEETEST AND MOST CARING boy in the session. You are also falsely known as the MOST INCOMPETENT, leaving you wondering why you stick your neck out for everyone sometimes when they always  take your help for granted. Your shitcode is radiatingMidwife, And you make Sure to idEntify your emphasis WherEver you deem It nEcessary.

*crosses fingers for Wendyl to return next season*

Ford/Pacifica Headcanons

Because I love the idea of these two having a father figure/daughter figure relationship too much. Some ideas loosely inspired off of the Family AU.

  • Stan often finds Ford fast asleep in the living room chair, Pacifica snuggled beside him, his arm around her.
  • They’re both movie fanatics, even once cleared out the whole living room just so they could watch one movie the minute it came out on DVD.
  • Pacifica’s rather fond of his labcoat, whenever she’s scared/upset or even confident she’d cling onto it, hiding part of  her body behind it.
  • While Mabel is the one who ultimately introduces Ford to technology, Pacifica buys him his first phone and he’s extremely confused by it.
  • At first, Ford is slightly reluctant about bringing her on supernatural hunting/adventures, but after one incident that required her to save him, he starts training her to fight.
  • Pacifica loves all his stories from the portal and listens ritually to all of them.
  • After learning about Ford’s history about wanting to/ being unable to talk to girls, she tries to get him “into the game,” but she eventually gives up when she learns he’s aromantic.
  • For the record, Pacifica has tons of guys after her, but Ford disapproves of all of them (he thinks she’s too good for anyone, lmao.) However, it doesn’t become an issue since Paz only has eyes for Dipper and Ford’s all for it.
  • (Inspired by @mathes0n​ idea) Ford learns about the bell Pacifica’s parents use on her, and he indeed needs to be physically restrained from beating up Preston.
  • Pacifica finds it easier to talk about her family issues with Ford, and he understands because he had abusive parents too.
  • Since they both have low self-esteem, they actually benefit each other. Ford teaches Pacifica to be more confident about herself and Ford finally feels that someone appreciates him not just for his smarts.

Honestly I really loved Krem in DA, I thought he was gonna be really badly written, but like he was actually good, had character depth, and added to bull's story. The only major critique is that pretty much your first convo with him is like "hey so you're a trans dude huh" but that's not unique to him that's just rpg conversation

Yeah I mean ultimately until we have technology where you the player can speak to an AI without pre-written lines its gonna happen. Plus, if you delve into the lore it makes up for what is kinda lacking in-game.

In my heart tho, nobody has topped Arcade Gannon from FO:New Vegas. Subtle hints in dialogue or you RPing a gay/bi character with Confirmed Bachelor to even be able to flirt with him allowed his character to shine thru without so much focus on his sexuality as a selling point.

Not saying a characters sexuality or gender identity should be muted or restrained, but people are more than those things. If a developer makes them that and not much else, they lose all appeal.

NEW LORDS WILL RISE

The wall which stood for centuries along the southern border of Old Russia has collapsed, a battle-scorched reminder that our enemies still seek to destroy us all. Fallen mutants now scavenge the tombs of the Golden Age, and the plague they have unearthed in the wastes is more dangerous than even they understand. Join Lord Saladin. Journey into the Plaguelands. Learn the fate of the Iron Lords and stop the growing threat before it is too late.

The Plaguelands

This area near the Cosmodrome has been quarantined for centuries. Now the Devil Splicers have broken through the walls, dug deep into the earth and found technology of almost limitless power. The Splicers are using this forbidden technology – SIVA – to transform the region to fit their twisted desires.

The Devil Splicers

Every Fallen House has Splicers – body hackers and bioengineers, these Splicers meld flesh and machine. The Devil Splicers are loyal to the House of Devils, and they now have the ultimate technology – SIVA. They are using it to transform themselves. Instead of worshiping machine gods, the Devil Splicers will *become* machine gods.

The Iron Lords

Before the City and the Vanguards, there were the Iron Lords. Blessed by the Traveler’s Light, these brave warriors dedicated themselves to defending humanity and rebuilding a lost civilization. From their mountain fortress on Felwinter Peak, the Iron Lords ranged across the planet, battling the Darkness and protecting the survivors of the Collapse. They did great things … but then they encountered an enemy they could not defeat. Now Lord Saladin, the last Iron Lord, honors the memories of his lost brothers and sisters.

And he waits… because he knows that someday the thing that destroyed the Iron Lords will return.

Seeds are the ultimate technology, abundance producer and nature’s gifts. Capitalism can’t beat that. Seeds are being patented, modified and commodified. Capitalism can’t beat that. It is our duty, as seed savers, to ensure that genetic diversity and cultural diversity are kept free and alive. We will meet in April for the second Seed, Medicine and Plant Exchange in LA, CA.

This is the first YouTube video ever. It was uploaded 10 years ago today.

Okay so we all know The Lunar Chronicles are full of OTPs, but what about brOTPs?
Cress and Cinder becoming the ultimate technological dream team and designing, building and programming the best droids and ships anyone’s ever seen
Thorne and Scarlet competing to see who’s the better shot (it’s Scarlet) and watching bad action flicks together
Kai and Wolf awkwardly bonding over their mutual loyalty to Cinder and realizing they have the same taste in books
Cress and Iko watching hours and hours of bad net dramas and styling each other’s hair/makeup (they’ve tried to bring in Cinder and Scarlet, but Cinder hates makeup and Scarlet refuses to let anyone straighten her hair)
Cinder and Wolf being workout buddies and each other’s secondary emotional support, having in-depth conversations late into the night about how they feel like total outsiders and, at times, even monsters
Cress teaching Wolf all she knows about Earthens and their strange ways, and eventually developing a close brother/sister relationship because neither of them really have any family left
Jacin and Wolf grudgingly being forced to spend time together and eventually realizing they actually get along pretty well (other than the whole “you got my alpha kidnapped” thing)
Winter helping Scarlet survive and get over her torture, and Scarlet helping Winter learn how to function in society again (as well as giving not always great relationship advise)
Cinder and Winter finally finding the family they always deserved in each other, Cinder being Winter’s ambassador and confidant when she eventually becomes queen
Cress staying at Scarlet’s farm and learning how to farm/take care of animals as well as how to be a relatively normal teenaged girl
Thorne constantly teasing Jacin and helping him feel like a member of the team, trusting him enough to have his back in a fight and giving him a chance to prove his loyalty
Thorne saying he won’t have to do anything if Kai hurts Cinder because literally everyone else on the Rampion will tear the poor guy’s head off
Scarlet seething at the mere sight of Jacin until Winter finally forces her to actually talk to him. They wind up spending most gatherings making snarky and sarcastic comments about the rest of the team.
Just…Lunar Chronicles characters being buddies and not constantly having to fear for their lives

It’s gonna happen. This sad night will come. You’ll climb onto your air mattress, because despite having moved into your own place two months ago you still haven’t gotten it together enough to buy a bed.

Metal and Flesh

Every Fallen House has Splicers – body hackers and bioengineers who fuse metal and flesh – but the Splicers of the House of Devils have uncovered the ultimate technology: SIVA, a Golden Age breakthrough in self-assembling, self-replicating nanotechnology. The Fallen have always worshiped machine gods. Now, armed with SIVA, the Devil Splicers are becoming machine gods themselves. Confront the Fallen Devil Splicers in the Plaguelands, find the source of the SIVA, and contain the outbreak at any cost.
