6 Sarcastic Guys’ Conversation.

6 SARCASTIC GUYS’ CONVERSATION (SEVERAL FANDOMS CROSSOVER): Fanfic? (because I wanted to write this ever since I saw a post similar to this)

Who’s in the house?

-  House

-  Jack Sparrow

-  Tony Stark

-  Sherlock

-  Dean Winchester

-  …?

What do they have in common?

(You don’t have to know all of the characters)

Narcissism, sarcasm, some are genius’, most are experts in their work, all of them have drinking/drug dependencies, most have childhood issues and are secretly full of angst, etc.

Summary: This is just them, trapped in a room together, with no idea how they got there or how to get out. There may be more characters to come…

Warnings: Not much, a bit of swearing.

Comments are well appreciated (nice comments, helpful comments etc.)

Part 1

Jack: Now, the real question remains: Where is the rum?

House glared at him.

House: That’s not the real question, dumbass. I wanna know what the hell we’re doing here.

Tony: Maybe it’s a house party.

Sherlock is bent down by the door, his nose alarmingly close to the floor.

Tony: Ok, curly, what’re you doing now?

Sherlock looks up frowning, realising he’s being addressed.

Sherlock: I’m checking to see what substances there are in order to determine where we are, which is a lot more than any of you lot are doing.

Tony: *huffs* Well, excuse me, princess-

House: There’s no way of getting out of here.

House is sat by the window, and everyone looks up to him. He motions to the window with his cane.

House: These windows are fake. That door is impenetrable, the walls are made with considerable strength, as we’ve found out, and none of us geniuses have any idea why we’re here, where we are, how we got here, or who sent us here.

Everyone was quiet.

Jack: Well, I for one, am not a genius – just to clarify.

Sherlock sighs and sits up against the wall.

Tony: Find anything?

Sherlock: No. There’s no evidence, no substances, no clues – just nothing.

He looked sullenly ahead.

Tony: Well, my Iron Man suit should be here anytime now.

Sherlock: It’s not going to work…

Tony screwed his eyes at him.

Tony: Well, I don’t think your ‘sniffing around’ is exactly doing to much to solve this problem either-

Jack: Ok, ok, ladies, lets settle down, shall we? Look, we only have each other in this neat room of ours, and if we start fighting, it all goes downhill from there, and frankly, I think we’d all know who would be the only one standing after that.

Jack smiled smugly to himself.

House sighs and mutters something like ‘imbecile’.

Jack: What was that now?

Sherlock looked over as House sighs, and rubs his leg with his hand, his cane to the side.

Tony: What happened to you?

House looks up and replies sarcastically: I tripped.

Tony: Well don’t get your knickers in a twist, Doc, I was only asking.

Sherlock: He got shot.

House looked over to him.

House: How the hell do you know that?

Jack: Oh, God, don’t ask him for an explanation, I’m beggin’ you.

Sherlock: Well, it’s clear from the way he holds his leg that he’s in obvious pain-

Jack: Here we go..

Sherlock, ignoring the interruption: and he’s used to it according to the heavy bags under his eyes from sleepless nights, and he’s bitter, a sign of long-lasting pain, so why wouldn’t you do something about it? Well, it’s obvious he’s tried drugs-

House: Shut the hell up.

Sherlock: – takes one to know one – but they didn’t work out, did they? Got too dependent on them, so now you just have to take the pain – and by yourself – I mean, it’s obvious that you’re lonely.

House stands up with his cane: I said SHUT UP!

He went over to Sherlock and squared up to him.

Tony and Jack looked at each other wide-eyed.

House: You think you’re some big genius, who can just figure everyone out by one look-

Sherlock: Well, yea, pretty much-

But suddenly there was a big BANG as the door came flying inwards.
They all shielded themselves as the door was smashed down and smoke covered them, some of them coughing, as Sherlock quickly walking over the new body that was now on the floor, coughed through the smoke and went through the door, just to see another door a few feet behind it.

Sherlock: Dammit.

House looked around.

House: Everyone alright?
Jack: Just dandy

House grimaced as he put his cane down and knelt to the man on the floor, turning him onto his back so they could see him, Tony kneeling next to him.

Tony: You know him?

House: Nope.

House leant down to check the man’s breathing, when suddenly he snapped up and looked around frantically, his golden necklace swaying across his chest.

Man: What the hell – oh, son of a bitch.

He held onto his head, wincing slightly and cursed to himself.

House: What’s your name? Do you know how you got here?

Sherlock and Jack crowded round to listen.

Man: Name’s Dean Winchester. And I have no clue, man.

reasons why Gloria Estefan should play Abuela Claudia when the revival of In the Heights inevitably comes

- she’s cuban
- she likes Lin-Manuel Miranda and has said before she’s really proud of his work and what he’s doing for the Latino community
- he’s won Grammy awards, she’s won Grammy awards, they already have so much in common
- she’s cuban
- she’s roughly the same age as previous performers playing Abuela Claudia
- she’s cuban
- her voice is beautiful and makes flowers grow in a trail behind her wherever she goes
- I really love her and I want it to happen

why did i spend time on this  a word cloud of every key word the twelfth doctor has said - from ‘the time of the doctor’ to ‘the return of doctor mysterio’ (including class because how could i not). long story short, his catchphrase is clara (the larger the word the more it was said)

Why would antis think that Kubo wouldn't put a 16 year old and an 18 year old together? Like that's somehow taboo? She wrote a guy who has a crush on his own sister! Most of these antis think the whole world operates the way America does. 16 is a far more common legal age of consent anyway, and now that Yuri has been confirmed canonically 16, they have no more ground to their argument. He can do what he wants, and I support him.

so it occurred to me that my AC:NL fishing trick might not be something everybody does? like, maybe it is, i dunno, but i figured i’d share just in case

so when i’m doing a bunch of fishing or bug catching for expensive/rare fish or bugs(especially on the island) i’ll pick up a single seashell, the cheap kind like a sand dollar that basically aren’t worth picking up, bells-wise. then, i just fish(or hunt bugs) without worrying about my inventory space. when i finally get the warning that i’m out of space, i don’t have to agonize about throwing back something rare, i just drop the shell. 

if i have some common fish/bugs, then i can just toss them, pick the shell back up, and continue what i was doing. 

that way i don’t have to interrupt my flow to count empty spaces and i dont loose track of how many spaces i have left. i can just focus on the task. so that’s my simple trick, i hold a shell

"don't touch dead animals if you don't know what you're doing" How do i not know.. what I'm doing.. when i touch a dead thing??? Am i supposed to like... Touch it with my foot? Or with my mouth?? Am i supposed to bite it or?? I mean, i have gloves and hand sanitizer and stuff in my car to do it with but reblogger said i don't know what I'm doing, so apparently there's some mystical way to do this, that doesn't include common sense or any safety gear???? (Why are they so fickle omg 😂)

I would argue that anyone with the proper safety gear and a bit of training on how to avoid disease spread could be considered to “know what they’re doing” in regards to the removal of a dead animal.

But then again, just because it’s obvious to you and me that you need to take some precautions doesn’t mean it’s obvious to others. Anyone who thinks its fine to just waltz up to any random carcass and put their bare hands on it probably shouldn’t be doing so. Disease spread to humans from animal carcasses is pretty rare, but remember you can also spread things from the dead animal to live animals like dogs if you aren’t careful- or end up taking away ticks or fleas from a carcass as well.

Mom I need help. I have a really bad crush on a guy and he has no idea I exist & I have no idea what to do

gah, the significant other talk? oh my goodness. i had note cards prepared.

oh jeez, i cant find them.

okay, listen. you be yourself. don’t change yourself in anyway. talk to him as a pal, find out what his interests are. see if you have anything in common. be there for each other. see if things grow from that.

most importantly, never forget to love yourself.

How to report someone in FFXIV: Don’t let them get away

I’ve noticed lately the report system has changed a bit, either that or I haven’t found this way out but the only visible means of reporting someone is right clicking their name in chat/party/etc and going to Report

The problem here now is that the only option you have to report them for is RMT (gold selling pretty much). So what are we to do if someone is a genuine asshat to you or someone? Are they doing something against ToS/Moral Values that’s not gold selling? Here’s how:

First, boot up the System button on the bottom right hand corner. It has an X/V symbol on it:

Then you go to Support Desk:

Then you should have a window with four tabs: Information, News, Contact Us and History. Below are some examples of what you can report, but in this particular example we’re going to go with Report Harassment since it’s unfortunately the most common thing we see in games.

Once you click that, you’ll get a lovely, in depth form to fill out that includes a bunch of very important details like the name of the offended and their home realm, where it happened and comments made by the player.

What I like here is that they give you tips on where to find the information, say you don’t know what world the person is from? Under Name and World if says you can find the world from the contact list under Social in the Main menu and what this gem does is bring up the last 50 people you were in a party with. This is genius and lets you scroll through until you find who you are looking for.

Once you’re filled it out, it will give you a moment to check over your ticket with a preview window. During that time you can either Submit it or Edit it and I found the response rather quick so here’s hoping that you all get quick responses too.

Don’t let these people ruin our games, dob them in and save a life

Hi, not a submission but I wanted to ask other people in therapy: is it normal for for a psychologist to be apprehensive in diagnosing? They mentioned that it was due to the labeling effect that could occur. Personally, I feel uncomfortable that I might not it get a diagnosis/get a clear answer and am unsure whether I should change therapist.

From personal experience, it is fairly common especially for therapists, yes. For the reason they mentioned, unfortunately it can get really hard to get a diagnosis from them. Often what they will do is refer you to a psychiatrist and/or a diagnostical team if they feel that you need a diagnosis.

Do any of my followers have any info/advice to add?

Third String

                                                 Distraction.

That is often how one could label themselves when they were the second choice. A mere person used in instances to keep thoughts of another at bay. For the first time in her life Emeri had found the blunt effects of it to be taxing but unknown to her she had been the old fiddle many times.

Anger didn’t fill her when Rathorin finally made his intentions known and whatever information he offered her was coupled into putting two and two together and common sense. He loved someone he could not have and essentially, drew at straws and possibilities to lose her in the haze of another. The Huntress knew this well, distance never worked nor did these seemingly flawless tactics.

Only love could dull love.

“What do you think the way is?”

“I don’t think we fall out of love with people but simply find it better and budding in another that can reciprocate it.”

Thoughts about Linn?

Yay! You are the first to ask about a  minor character! 

I think we have all been Linn one time or another when we just want to sit in our room and be on the computer (that is what I’m doing right now so yay!). I know it is a common head canon that Linn has some sort of problem and that is why she is sort of cutoff. I personally don’t believe that. In my opinion Linn has shown on numerous situations that she is comfortable around other people. She often joins pre-games that Isak or Noora is hosting or the scene where she is playing games with Even or just overall her friendship with Eskild that shows that she can dance and joke around. She just prefers to be alone and it is nothing wrong with that. 

I love Linn because she like many others shows us that our favorite person can be ourself.

Okay. I'm fairly new to the GG fandom, and I feel silly asking, but I'm having a rough time finding a few things that I love seeing on my dash, but I have no idea how to look for them. In your last post you said something about "the pudding incident". I have no idea what that is, but I'd love to find out. Also, (and this might be the dumbest question of all) but where can I watch any Jack Walsh content? I keep seeing gifs and clips, but I have no idea where to see him on GG.

Welcome to the fandom!

So, it is pretty tough to find what you’re looking for on here. What I usually do, is when I see a post I like on my dash. I’ll look at the tags and find the common one most people use and I’ll follow it.

There are some things the grumps do that are difficult to find. The pudding incident was when Brian fed Ross a cup of pudding on a livestream. They put the video on their grumpout channel, thankfully.

They had a habit of not saving their streams but I recorded most of them and you can find them in my main blog, lygerzero14, under GG streams.

As for Jack content, he’s more of a behind the scenes guy, he’s been in their stout train videos, but you’ll mostly see him on the grumps social media.

I recommend going to @keenveins blog and go through her Jack tag, (jack the intern) after all she’s his “mom”.

Hope this helps.

ravenclaw: Remember when Netflix and Tumblr didn’t exist and you read like 10 books a week? Good times. (x)

hufflepuff: what do u mean we’re not friends, we follow each other (x)

Okay, I fully understand everyone’s excitement over the ring-exchange and engagement, but please don’t mock or dismiss Yuuri calling it a “lucky charm”. 

Not only were those his honest and sincere feelings, but omamori are more than mere “lucky charms”, they’re a huge part of Japanese culture, and Japanese religion, with very profound meaning, so mocking that is actually incredibly rude, and highly culturally insensitive.

Traditionally, Japanese omamori look like this

and can be bought at most shrines and temples in Japan. I’d actually say they’re closer to “prayers” than “lucky charms”, really, in their intent, though that doesn’t quite fit, either. But when you know that the most common omamori are for things like safety in traffic, doing well in school, having romantic encounters, and fertility/safely born children (used both by couples who want kids, and expecting mothers hoping for no complications with their pregnancy), you probably see what I mean.

The word omamori translates roughly to protector/protection/protective charm, and are based on the animistic Shinto world view. The ones you get at shrines are part supplication that the enshrined deity will bless and protect you, and part a… hmm, almost a signal beacon? so said deity can find you, to know that you’re someone under their protection. And also part comfort for the carrier, that they’re not alone, that they’ve got someone on their side. 

But it’s not just “official” deities that are considered to have protective powers. Your ancestors are also seen sort of as guardian spirits protecting their family line (common theme in East Asian religions - Mulan, anyone? - at least, and I think also in all animistic religions, though that’s not my area of expertise), and even such ambiguous things as strong emotions are seen to have protective and blessing properties, especially love and affection.

For this reason, a lot of people will use mementos or objects of sentimental value as omamori. Either because it reminds them of a particular person or situation or emotion, or because they see some kind of link between that particular object and whatever they seek blessings for/protection against.

The important part for Yuuri, and why he bought that ring, is less that it’s a wedding ring, and more that it’s a gold ring. Yes, emphasis on both gold and ring.

The gold part is obvious, because the blessing he wants is help in getting a gold medal. It’s a resonance/like-brings-like thing.

The ring part is more obscure, but I’ll try to explain it.

One of the most basic and important parts of Japanese culture and society is the idea of 縁 (en). If you look it up in a Japanese-English dictionary, you get words like fate, destiny, chance, a relationship, a connection, a bond, an affinity, and while those are all ways to translate the word, depending on context, they don’t really explain the concept. En is the meeting of two or more things/beings that leaves a lasting connection or bond.

You might say you don’t have en with money to indicate that you can never seem to amass any wealth. It’s less you’ve got no luck with money, but more that you and money were never meant to be. You might earn it, but it still doesn’t stick around, somehow. An omamori for romance is called an enmusubi, or a “tier of en/bonds”, in this case referring to interpersonal relationships.

If you’re saying goodbye to someone you don’t know whether you’ll ever see again, you might express a wish that you’ll have en, and be able to meet again.

Now, I’ve mentioned in previous posts that the Japanese love homonyms and word associations. This is even more true for en, because it’s so important to them. Like in the example of a farewell, you might give someone a five yen coin, because five yen is go-en (五円), and when speaking of en with an honorific, that’s also go-en (ご縁). It’s a physical manifestation of your wish to have en with them. This is also why five yen coins are generally considered the best coins to give as offerings when you pray for something, despite their low value, because it indicates a hope for en with your wish.

Okay, getting to the point now: Another homonym (well, technically the same one, but different usage) for en is the word for circle or round. And because that’s basically what a ring is, rings are often used as a metaphor for, or an expression of a wish for en. So rings generally have a more profound level of meaning in Japanese.

It’s a gold ring because Yuuri wishes to have en with gold medals. He gives it to Victor because he wishes to have en with him.

He spent the whole day looking for something. He said he’d desperately wanted an omamori for a long time. He’s embarrassed, because yes, it’s a goddamn wedding ring, and he’s very aware of that, and giving rings to someone, period, is not something a Japanese person does lightly. It’s a very meaningful act, and this omamori is very important to Yuuri, so going “lol, lucky charm, yeah right” is incredibly disrespectful.

“It’s easy to forget now, when we’ve come so far, where now marriage is equal under the law, just how much courage was required for Ellen to come out on the most public of stages almost 20 years ago. Just how important it was, not just to the LGBT community, but for all of us to see somebody so full of kindness and light, somebody we liked so much, somebody who could be our neighbor, or our colleague, or our sister, challenge our own assumptions. Remind us that we have more in common that we realize. Push our country in the direction of justice. What an incredible burden that was to bear, to risk your career like that. People don’t do that very often. And then to have the hopes of millions on your shoulders.”

— President Barack Obama awarding Ellen DeGeneres the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Nov. 22, 2016

Ellen DeGeneres received a Presidential Medal of Freedom yesterday. 

This is what Barack Obama said in her honour: 

“It’s easy to forget now, when we’ve come so far, where now, marriage is equal under the law, just how much courage was required for Ellen to come out on the most public of stages almost 20 years ago. Just how important it was, not just to the LGBT community but for all of us to see somebody so full of kindness and light, somebody we liked so much, somebody who could be our neighbour or our colleague or our sister, challenge our own assumptions. Remind us that we have more in common than we realise. Push our country in the direction of justice. What an incredible burden that was to bear. To risk your career like that, people don’t do that very often. And then to have the hopes of millions on your shoulders. But it’s like Ellen says, “We all want a tortilla chip, that can support the weight of guacamole.” Which really makes no sense to me. But I thought would break the mood because I was getting kind of choked up. And she did pay a price. We don’t remember this. I hadn’t remembered it. She did, for a pretty long stretch of time, even in Hollywood. And yet, today, every day, in every way, Ellen counters what too often divides us, with the countless things that bind us together, inspires us to be better, one joke, one dance at a time.”

Earth oceans and what's in them

Going off how the Humans are Space Orcs and “Humans bond with anything despite obvious danger” that annoys the rest of the alien crew, think about them being introduced to earth oceans

After all it’s common to have to always remove their human from unknown likely dangerous life forms despite constant protests and that they were only “playing”
they start to notice that their human never really speaks of their earths sea creatures, which makes sense as the humans organs aren’t equipped to survive in that environment despite being able to “swim” (it is a common theory discussed that humans could survive if given no option to otherwise as that’s what they always seem to do) curious and nervous, a rookie of the crew, decides to ask (the veterans have learned not to ask about earth as it always ends in confusion and horror) Only to be told that “they aren’t really sure”, in human speak this can mean many things. One is that they never looked, another is that they were honestly telling the truth. Confused, they ask again as surely the species that does everything to fulfill their curiosity would surly know what fills 75% of their surface? Only to be told of creatures that are the length of their ship with a jaw just as wide. Of creatures that glow to attract and trap their pray. And that there was never a pod that was created could withstand the pressure of deepest depths. Or if it could, the visual feed would always disappear within rows of jagged teeth. And that are only the stories that have been proven. There are stories of the old ages, of creatures that could drown you with the sound of their voice, of things only seen in the shadows with a glimpse of sharp teeth. Humans don’t go in the ocean, they learn. Humans that are made of iron and steel, known to bond with anything, and a curiosity that defies all known logic don’t dare to explore the depths of their own planet. The crew learn that the only thing to terrify their human are the creatures that lurk in the oceans of their own earth. Everything must seem tame to them compared to the monster planet that they call home. And suddenly, things make sense.

If you’re a minor, I promise you there’s no good reason for someone significantly older than you to be interested in you romantically or sexually
-Even if their intentions seem pure. It’s not possible for them to have good intentions. They are an adult & they know what they’re doing is wrong.
-Even if they tell you “you’re so mature”. This is a common grooming tactic among pedophiles.
-Even if they give you examples of other people in happy relationships with huge age differences.
-Even if they say something along the lines of “our love is stronger than our age difference/age is just a number/I’ve never felt this way about anyone else/it doesn’t matter what people think”

No matter what, there’s no good reason for an adult to be in a relationship with a child. You deserve an un-abusive partner who is your own age who will understand you better & have much more in common with you.
