It’s one in the morning, I just finished a horrible project that I never want to deal with again, and I just need to write something. So:
I saw some Tweets by Her Excellency Lady Ngozi Ukazu earlier tonight (this post) where Jack’s internal monologue sounded disturbingly similar to the instant messaging method of my Dungeon Master. Naturally, I told @a-canker-in-a-hedge, who screamed, and then I screamed, and then we spent half an hour talking about how SMH would play D&D. All of this is, of course, her fault.
So, without further ado, SMH plays D&D.
Starting off with Jack, my history nerd son, who is the Dungeon Master of a 5e game. He learned how to DM from the older siblings of his peewee players, who would talk about their campaign while they waited for the smol babbies. He was Intrigued™
Naturally Jack “110%” Zimmermann, when he got involved with D&D, immediately went full nerd on it. He read so many 3.5 books, guys. He was so confused by Pathfinder, and still sometimes falls back on 3.5 rules rather than 5e ones
He didn’t… mean to DM. He moved away from his old campaign when he came to Samwell, and the Fantasy Club at Samwell has a D&D group, but their sessions coincided with practices, and Shitty found out that he played, and then things sort of snowballed
And if he’s gonna do it, he’s gonna do it his way. So… in his first year, Jack wrote up his own setting. It’s got all the standard D&D stuff in it, it’s just not exactly the setting from the books. Gives more verisimilitude to the players, right?
Also lets Jack put in all the history nerd stuff
Every battle in both of the world wars is referenced somewhere in his setting
So, yeah, in that first year, Johnson and Shitty were his main players, with a sort of steady cycle of any other guys they could convince to play a session with them
Jack considered inviting Camilla Collins to play, but decided against it because she wasn’t super interested and also you never DM for a romantic/sexual partner unless it’s a really solid relationship. That Way Lies Disaster
There were standard characters that they got handed to fill out the party
Shitty was the leader of the group (which he calls “Shits and Giggles”) an elven bard with so much hair. Guys. Just. So much beautiful flow
The description of the character changes depending on a) how much clothing Shitty is wearing and b) how high he is, but there is so much hair. Just. Godiva up in here
And so much Cha. Shitty knows what he’s doing, and what he’s doing is making it so no one will ever hit him because they’re too busy being in awe of him
Why yes, he does use and abuse Charm Person
Johnson plays a human fighter. When Shitty asked him why he was playing such a standard character, he said, “Well, the writers didn’t actually think about me when they were screaming about this little offshoot of canon, and anyway it’s pretty meta that I’m a fictional person playing a game as a fictional version of me, so, well, *shrug*”
Shitty will never know how he created asterisks in speech

Who is the most affectionate?
I’d say Izuku is more emotionally open and more likely to initiate physical affection. Shouto’s quieter about it, and would show affection through other means.
Big spoon/Little spoon?
They could go either way, but Izuku’s usually the big spoon.
Most common argument?
It’s either Izuku’s devil-may-care attitude about his own physical safety, or Shouto’s tendency to shut people out and internalize his problems even when it isn’t really healthy.
Favorite non-sexual activity?
I’d say it’s sparring/training together or just, sitting quietly and enjoying each other’s presence.
Who is most likely to carry the other?
Izuku by choice, but Shouto by necessity.
Can’t really see Shouto nicknaming Izuku unless he’s calling him by his hero name, but hey if Izuku can call Bakugou Katsuki “Kacchan” then maybe he can nickname Shouto something cute too.
Who worries the most?
They both worry but they do it differently. Izuku checks on Shouto from time to time, just to make sure he’s okay if something happens that Izuku thinks might be upsetting or triggering for him. Shouto’s more likely to lie awake at night remembering all the injuries that Izuku’s incurred, and wondering what other terrible things could possibly happen.
Not comfortable answering this, they’re kids.
Who initiates kisses?
Who wakes up first?
My headcanon is that Shouto is incapable of sleeping in. His brain is hard-wired for early rising because Bad Things Happen if he keeps his father waiting for any reason.
Who says I love you first?
Oh man this is a tough one. Weirdly enough I see it being Shouto, if only because he’s so blunt and straightforward that it might overcome his overall taciturnity.
Just throwing it out there that it makes sense in the Musketeers/Versailles timeline for those two old gays (Porthos and Aramis) to have mentored those two baby gays (Phillipe^2). And this is approximately what they would have looked like when they all knew eachother.
Just gonna throw alllllllll my headcannons out there (they’re based on a combo of both shows cannons, and history trufacs):
Porthos survived that war, but Elodie ran off with his pension, so he stayed a musketeer. (They knew each other for like….4 days. No way that was gonna work. Puh-lease.)
Aramis kinda fell out of love with Anne when she stopped being the sweet, protectable thing that he falls in love with so easily and became the manipulative bitch that she historically became. By the time she gives birth to Phillipe and starts neglecting him, Aramis and Anne only speak when they’re having massive arguments. And they have famously massive arguments about the boys.
When Anne begins sleeping with Cardinal Mazaran, all 4 of the Musketeers aboutndiednof the irony.
Porthos and Aramis low-key got back together. Athos called it and D'artagnan owed him drinks for a month.
After he returned from the war, Porthos became the Musketeer in charge of 4-year-old Phillipe’s personal security. He fell in love with the sweet little boy instantly and became his surrogate dad.
Phillipe is actually Aramis’s biological son, just like Louis.
That time that Anne left Phillipe behind to be captured by the Frond, Porthos fought his way through the occupied area singlehandedly and walked out with his little babby. He also never really trusted Anne again after that incident.
Aramis isn’t sure that Phillipe is his son because Anne won’t tell him, but Porthos knows cause “he’s cute, and a flirt, and a good shot, and kinda gay. Of course he’s your son.”
Porthos taught Phillipe how to defend himself because Louis’s friends used to pick on him for wearing dresses. That’s why Phillipe is a hell of a fighter. He learned from Porthos.
That’s also why he’s a boss-bitch in battle. Porthos trained him.
Phillipe wanted to be a Musketeer when he was a little boy. He even had a tiny blue musketeer cloak that Constance made for him for his 6th birthday.
Milady gave him a poison hairpin one time to help him “take care of himself”. Phillipe still has it and wears it on dress days.
Because Louis became a little shit once he became king, the Musketeers adopted Phillipe as their fav instead. They taught him to ride, and fight and shoot.
Phillipe came out to Porthos and Aramis when he was 11, after he caught Porthos and Aramis kissing behind a hedge one day. Porthos’s exact response was “Yeah….I kinda already knew that.”
Porthos HATES most of Phillipe’s early lovers cause he thinks they’re creeps. Particularly the Count De Guiche.
Porthos initially distrusts the Chevallier, but Aramis convinces him to give the Chevallier a chance because “he recognizes some of himself in the boy” (cause they’re both man-hoes. But they have good hearts.)
The Chevallier eventually becomes the only lover that Phillipe’s musketeer dads approve of. Mostly because he accepts their sweet babby Phillipe for who he is.
But the Chevallier will always be low-key scared of Porthos…..because he’s HUGE.
The Chevallier did NOT realize that Aramis and Porthos were kinda gay for each other and when Phillipe told him he just gaped like a fish for about ten minutes.
Right before Aramis died, he finally told Phillipe that he was his father, and that he loved him, and was so proud of him, and Phillipe was so happy to finally have a parent that loved him.
And everyone lived gayly ever after.
So that’s my little contribution to Versailles and Musketeers.
I made this for anyone who hasn’t watched Transformers Animated yet. They’re all my babbies. Decepticons will probably be done tomorrow. With a new color scheme. After that I’ll do the other Autobots I couldn’t fit in this slideshow.
ALSO EDIT. Nearly all of the images on here were capped by tftomfoolery ! Go follow them they are neat.

The Silver Ship, indeed.
Who is the most affectionate? Hidan, oddly enough. For all his love of pain, he is the more emotionally expressive of the two, both verbally and physically.
Big spoon/Little spoon? Hidan is the big spoon, Kakashi’s back is his and his alone to cover.
Most common argument? “Why is your blood all over the sheets again?”
Favorite non-sexual activity? Both happen to share a particular fondness for naughty literature, and in their downtime they read together, or more often, with Kakashi lying back against his lover’s lap, reading aloud.
Who is most likely to carry the other? Depends on who has been weakened by an intense spar, or who fell asleep in an awkward location.
Nicknames? Kashi-kun, Hidan-chan
Who worries the most? Kakashi
Who tops? Hidan most of the time, but on rare occasions they switch
Who initiates kisses? Both
Who wakes up first? Hidan’s got prayers and devotions to attend to.
Random flyby saying that I freaking adore your comic- and my question is: how tall are these guys compared to each other (apart from Bits who we all know is a petite babby)?
YES!! I have been waiting for this question.
You can actually see the relative heights of the Boys in the Hockey Shit with R&Hcomic on nicknames:
Everything’s relative, because my proportions are ~wacky~. And I often do not succeed in sticking to their height/size differences in the comic and extras. BUT if I did, this is how the Boys would look like standing next to each other. When it comes to weight, Holster and Ransom are *around* 220lb and 210Ib, Shitty’s like 160lb, Jack’s probably riding 200lb, and Bitty’s 125lb. (Maybe. If he’s been eating protein.) I had to reference a lot of college hockey rosters to cook up these heights and weights. (And a lot of figure skating websites.)
AND YO IT’S LARDO. She’s in the next comic. Now is a good time to apologize for not updating.
Ok but what if Chara and Asriel didn't pull off their awful plot and when they were in their teens Asgore took Undyne in so now they have a little fish sister trying her best to get them to like her while Chara treats her as usual and Asriel just does what Chara does especially now that he's not at the bottom of the food chain anymore
HONESTLY SCRAPPY LITTLE UNDYNE WITH OLDER SIBS CHARA AND ASRIEL IS BOTH ADORABLE AND HEARTBREAKING…
I think Asriel is inherently pretty kind, but i DO think he’s pretty prone into letting Chara bully him into what they want- so i feel like he’d be the kind of older brother that in secret/one on one would dote on Undyne: give her sweets, ruffle her hair, etc
As for Chara, I’d HOPE that after spending years with the Dreemurr family they’d be a lot less…. messy, and hopefully a little happier, but I can see them being super insecure about their position in the family (especially since they were so used to being doted on and treasured as the Hope for Monsterkind and the Royal Child) and therefore snub/ignore Undyne as much as they could manage without giving anyone a bad impression
(most likely Asriel would do his best to try and seem like he was Just So Busy when both of them were around; a lot of ‘oh look at the time seems like I have royal duties to attend to-)
I think, ultimately, Chara would actually be won over by Undyne’s determination? I can’t see them as an Outwardly Affectionate person, but there’d definitely be a respect that she’d earn by just being So Set on making her new older siblings like her. After all, they’re an equally determined person- I think they’d probably find a little amusement and then affection for just how hardheaded she was and how she’d continue the tough act almost no matter what.
Chara may never end up an especially warm person, but I think they’d have their own kind of love for their family (possessive though it might be over Asriel and their parents at this point). Once they felt Undyne passed the test- whatever test that may be- I think they’d be just as defensive of her as the others!
(god help everyone with an Undyne under the influence of Chara, however- she’s already hotheaded, I feel like throwing an extra ‘sharp and even more stubborn’ influence in her life would make her Super Extra Dangerous to the Next Fallen Human)
varmitech and I talk a lot about cott and basically when we see Archie we see the biggest nasal-voiced babby who knows his anime and manga like the back of his hand and refers to Jay as Jay-senpai and yells “ATLANTA CHAN!!” when she is injured in battle. 15 year old baby.
