well at the world's end

This will not end well...

I was running a vanilla World of Darkness campaign with a few of my friends who I regularly game with. One of my players who loves to break any system he plays decided to make a character who is seriously good at only one kind of attack.

The party is traveling down into a catacomb full of cultists. They massacre their way into a room with a large pit in the center that is impossible to see the bottom.

DM: Alright guys, there are carved reliefs colored with what looks like blood in different stages of drying and decay.

N: I could care less. What is in the pit?

DM: You can’t see the bottom.

N: ok I shoot into the pit.

DM: You… Ok, fine. Go for it.

N: *rolls 18 dice* I have 22 successes. I think I hit whatever is down there.

DM: You… I… What… *Facepalm* Yeah, you hit it. Everyone make a Resolve and Composure check.

N: Oh, should I not have done that?

J: This will not end well…

Needless to say this lead to a total party death when they took on half a dozen Shoggoth. In his defence he did kill two right off the bat.

No-commentary video of SP above;  post-SP interview with Eng subs below.

No-commentary video of Free Skate:

Japanese commentary (parts of FP) + interview with Eng subs: 

Thanks to 6277 for the subbed videos with proper credit to Sophie Moroi for her translation, and with her permission too.  (I saw videos in Youtube that used Sophie’s translation with no permission, and even worse, with no credit to her whatsoever!)   

And I love no-commentary videos… thanks to siberia1982 for the SP and FP ones! 

Victory Ceremony:  I was watching the competition on live stream and praying so hard during ‘Hope&Legacy’.  When he finished his perfect FP, tears just streamed down my face.  YOU DID IT, YUZU!!!!  Then, after the last skater’s turn, when it was confirmed that Yuzu got the gold, I started crying again.  And I could not stop crying throughout the medal ceremony!  I was watching it on live stream and I kept wiping my eyes so that I could see clearly!   Ahhhhhh……… finally, through all those ups and downs of the past 2+ years, through all the pain and heartache, finally!!! he got the reward that he worked so hard for.  You really deserve that gold medal and all the happiness in the world, Yuzuru!!!

Gala exhibition, the beautiful Swan Prince in ‘Notte Stellata’: 

(much thanks to respective video uploaders)  

What a privilege to know you and to be your fan.  Thank you, Yuzu, and CONGRATS!!!!

so you didn’t get the grade you wanted. so you didn’t get the boy you wanted. so you didn’t get the job you wanted. so what do you do now? well, you think your world is ending but the truth is, you’re gonna wake up tomorrow morning. and maybe that’s what scares you the most: that even when bad things happen, we have to keep living. we don’t get a break. a day where we can sit and sulk. we have more living to do. we have more tests. we have more people to talk to. we have to get out of bed and go to work. but that’s the thing: there’s a whole world in front of us. and it breaks my heart to see people in their early twenties or even younger thinking their world is over because they didn’t get the grade or the boy or the job they wanted. don’t you see? there’s going to be more tests. there’s going to be more boys. there’s going to be more job opportunities. you’re not stuck. you can dig your way out. failure isn’t wrong; it’s inevitable. but we try again, and maybe again, and maybe again, and eventually, we will succeed. and it will be worth it: when you’re graduating college and falling in love with someone who’s right for you and working a job you love. you have so much time to get it right. i mean it. you don’t have to get it right right away. you’re not falling behind. you’re learning. you’re growing. you’re blossoming into the best person you can be. wait for them: the person you can be proud of. they’re coming.

“Really, Peter, my daughter ?” - Peter Parker x Stark!Reader

Summary : Peter starts to date Tony Stark’s daughter and the Iron Man isn’t sure he’s liking it…Well, actually, he’s pretty sure he hates it. 

I wanted to write something else than Batfam or DC related for once sooooooo…Here’s a Peter Parker story yo. It has probably been written a thousand times, but after I watched “Spider-Man : Homecoming”, all I wanted to do was writing a story with Peter starting to date Tony’s daughter so…yeah. Here it is. Hope you’ll like it :

__________________________________________________

Peter didn’t really mean for this to happen. Far from it. Oh it would have avoided him a world of troubles if none of this ever happened. 

Nope, totally didn’t mean for this to happen. Besides, when he first met you, he had a massive crush on Liz and had eyes only for her. Oh he was head over heels for her. And, your first encounter wasn’t exactly…a smooth one. 

************

Months earlier, when Peter helped your father against Captain America: 

It was very soon after the big fight between “Team Iron Man” and “Team Captain America” that you met him. Peter was waiting for  “Mr. Stark” in the Avengers’ watchtower, in one of the waiting lounge. 

An annoying elevator music was playing and Peter was awkwardly sitting in one of the ridiculously fancy chair of the lounge, waiting for…Someone. Anyone really. 

He had been waiting for hours. Did…did they forgot about him ? Nooooo, Mr. Stark would never do that to him. 

And when the door opened, Peter’s heart leapt at the thought of talking to his hero again and…A girl he only saw on TV appeared, hurriedly closing the door behind her. 

You. It was you. The famous (Y/N) Stark, only daughter of the even more famous Tony Stark, and therefor, sole heir to the Stark’s fortune.  

You didn’t even notice Peter at first, as he was sitting in the chair furthest to the door, and when you did, the face you made made him flinch. You seemed so unhappy to see him…

-Who the Hell are you ?

You ask without any other preamble. Peter stands up and clears his throat…and oh he wanted to slap himself when instead of telling you his name he said : 

-You’re…You’re (Y/N) Stark ! 

You roll your eyes at him and approach him slowly, giving him a suspicious look before saying : 

-Thank you, without you, I think I would have never known my own name. I’m so grateful right now…

The sarcasm in your voice was so strong Peter thought he could feel it squeezing his heart and self-confidence. It took him way too long before he finally answered : 

-Peee…Pee…Peter Parker.

respect each other

So basically I’ve been sitting back, observing, and experiencing. I really wasn’t about to do this but it’s been on my mind since I came back from my hiatus. I’m not sure what happened to the tumblr community but as someone that’s been here for six years, I just want to point a few things out.

I have never seen it get this bad? Everyone used to be much kinder, and more interactive with one another. As far as the world of fics goes, I have some stuff I need to get off my chest because this is ridiculous.

I have never seen the readers so quiet and the writers so discouraged in all my years here.

Keep reading

Like if you think good fanfictions are real art and just as valuable as published books

I’m tryna prove a point to my dad because he’s genuinely curious and didn’t really understand the concept of fanfiction.

Also feel free to leave a few arguments for that, I’m out of ideas of how I could prove to him that fanfictions can be just as thought through and well written as published books.

Thanks! <3

sinfulghoulie  asked:

Hiii ~ I love your acc so glad it exists ^^ I was wondering if you know any reincarnation AUs ?

Thanks for these requests! Oh gosh, these fics make me so sad but they’re so good! ***Please note that most of these fics have a warning for major character death because, well, that’s how reincarnation works!


Reincarnation AU


in death, at the end of the world by perennials, Gen, 8k **Major character death
From this life, to the next, to the next, he’ll chase you for as long as it takes. SO good!

nobody else by sunshinehide, Teen, 5.1k
In their first lives, Victor and Yuuri fall in love. They are destined to fall in love no matter how many times they meet in other lifetimes. This is the story of how Victor and Yuuri race through the cosmos to fall back into each other’s arms, eventually. This is the story of their never-ending love tale. A little fluffy, a little angsty. Great fic!

Again and Again by grayclouds, 2.2k
In most of Yuuri’s cycles, love comes slowly.Quicker with Victor, if he’s there. very cute, lovely one-shot!

Equinox by WhereverYouAre36, Teen, 10k
Viktor’s expression turned stoic, as cold as it always seemed to be. “You think I don’t run that scenario through my mind a thousand times a day? I don’t want to kill him again!” The world couldn’t survive another spout of winter’s grief. They had to get this right. Thumbs up!

I Swear I’ll Find You by anglmukhii, Teen, 3.2k
Victor and Yuuri’s previous life ended in tragedy, with a promise to find each other again. Just because it ended tragically there, it doesn’t mean that it has to in this life… Nice fix-it fic!

Fifty and One More by LazyPotatoo, Teen, 5.4k (WIP)
Yuuri’s has lived and died and been reincarnated over fifty times, and in each one, he’s met Victor. Not all of them they’ve been in love. Some of them they only met briefly, some of them they were different genders, some of them they were friends, some they were enemies. But every time they meet, they’ve never remembered their past lives - until now. WOW!

Always Find You by ironicbird, Teen, 27k (WIP) **Major character death, graphic depictions of violence
Yuuri doesn’t remember their past lives, but Viktor does. He remembers all six of them. They have been everything from soldiers to scientists to figure skaters. They always manage to find each other one way or another, but no matter how hard they try, they never seem to get their happy ending. Could this one finally be it? This is really good!

love me do: a victuuri week compilation (chapter 5) by thankyouforexisting, Teen, 5.7k
Yuuri doesn’t know how long they stay there, frozen in that moment, how long he thinks about the things he wants to say to Victor, the things he wants to say - not now, but in time, as he grows to know him better. How long he thinks about the fact that he truly wants to know him better, that he’s letting his soul be touched by someone for the first time in years.
He doesn’t know how long they stay there, a knight and a mage - the unlikeliest of companions - but he does know he never looks away. Awesome one-shot!

Bestseller by yaboykatsudon, Teen, 4.6k (WIP) **Major character death
Bestselling author Yuuri Katsuki often gets asked where his source of inspiration for his novel series comes from. Yuuri always puts on his best smile and gives the generic answer. However, his minds wanders back to the old journal sitting on his desk, and the dreams of a familiar blue-eyed stranger. Great WIP so far!

A Certain End by fishydwarrows, Teen, 2k **Major character death
Yuuri lives many lives at once and alone.
He is kept in Heart Mountain during the Second World War.
Yet he is also the son of a Daimyō in Owari.
Then, he is training to be a shinshoku in Myojin.
But, he also works as a banker in Manchester.
He trades with the Portuguese in Tanegashima.
And trains for the Worlds in Hasetsu.
Many lives, the same name, the same face.
The same heartache.

taako falling in love with kravitz must’ve been weird for him too, like. he’s obviously attracted to him and develops a crush on him within a minute, but the actual falling in love part woulda’ been hard for him to process. he’s not someone who’s really used to…expressing genuine affection to people because of his trauma, except for people that he’s had time to personally bond with and come to trust and care about (hurley, ren and angus, most notably)

and he can’t have that kind of bond with merle or magnus - he spends too much time with them for them to know anything too personal about him, it’d be too uncomfortable and humiliating for him to have that kind of knowledge floating around people he has to make eye contact with everyday. that’s why he’s emotionally withdrawn from the other horny boys, and emotionally drawn to people he doesn’t see too often/doesn’t have to explicitly plan to see them again, but still has enough time to bond with and trust and care for 

(you can tell he really likes people when he meets up with them despite not having to, i.e. ren and angus, and later kravitz in a romantic condition, whereas he only hangs out with merle and magnus for work stuffs, and has shown to dislike their continued presence outside of jobs)

he didn’t have much of that bonding time in tck with kravitz because, well the world was ending, but he did have time to realize that kravitz was utterly adorable, and he got time to learn more about him on their date; he got to see kravitz’s gentle, caring and patient side, the side that cared about taako’s life and safety and would even make a deal with the goddess of death in order to keep him alive. and god, who wouldn’t fall in love with that?

and obviously this is all you need to shut down any argument about how taako only went on the date with kravitz to manipulate him into saving their lives; if that was all he wanted, taako never would’ve told kravitz straight to his face that he liked him. he never would’ve fought desperately with his umbrastaff to keep it from shooting kravitz. he never would’ve giddily agreed to meeting up with kravitz again, and he never would’ve felt his heart explode when he thought he heard his voice.

it’ll take taako a while to realize just how deeply in love he is, and it’ll take him even longer to be okay with that; a lot of people he trusted before ended up screwing him over when he let his guard down around them. but it’s okay, because kravitz is patient with him and assures him everyday that he can take as long as he wants with accepting and expressing his feelings. they know they love each other and that’s all they really need to know
