Going to make you do another list- favorite scenes in Critical Role?
Oh, this is just cruel, especially since I’ve gone and decided I was gonna do timestamps. These are just a few that popped into my head and I’m sure I’ll remember thirty as soon as I post it. Enjoy the complete emotional whiplash of this random assortment of moments.
Tried to keep the descriptions as spoiler-free as possible so people can just jump in wherever, but I’d skip this if you’re really worried. Every link leads to the exact timestamp, some of which are obviously very spoilery. Here we go!
Episode 3: Vex and Keyleth say “fuck it”. (Note: early episode means v. loud at times and sound quality is pretty rough.)
Episode 4: Laura gets to the episode a bit late, just in time for an elaborate and extremely well-thought-out plan to go into play.
It only took three seasons and eleven episodes in to finally, BELATEDLY have an unwavering spotlight on her leaning the fuck in to unabashedly wreck shop. No inexplicable putdowns uttered simply for embarrassment’s sake. No taking lip from her wack assed BFF and turning blind, deaf and mute in response. Not hanging Annalise out to dry in spite of a litany of resentments (some valid, some not) festering since the beginning. Nope. None of that. It was just a culmination of what every Aja Naomi King stan has been craving for from day one. The student learning from her teacher, then taking training wheels off towards that coming full circle. Recognizing her role. Stepping into the leadership vacuum. Delegating responsibilities. Throwing a forest full of shade. Flawless fucking victories. And not only did she keep her composure, head swiveled on straight, getting rewarded with a bedtime massage to boot?
Take a bow, madam.
Tonight was over-delayed gratification harvested to fruition. It’s about fucking time! More where that came from, please!
Now where do I forward scriptwriter Abby Ajayi’s flower bouquet? Pete Nowalk could take a hint and learn something about adequate character development.
A group of enraged and concerned Slytherins, Ravenclaws, some Gryffindors and Hufflepuffs that hear about the Weasley Twins selling Love Potions in their bathroom shop, wrecking their potion display after the Twins refuse to stop selling it– it takes away the person’s consent. They’re wrong and horrible, it’s not ethical! The Twins brush them off and hex them out of their store. Who would listen to Slytherins and their friends, anyway? Besides, Love Potions are legal. They even teach you how to make them in class!
The group making detection rings with counter charms on them and selling them for a copper if only so they can buy rings at Hogsmead. The Slytherins networking to make sure that the biggest targets of the hottest gossip were protected and that they knew how powerful to make the charms to counter the potions via listening to the Gryffindors about how the Twins are with their potions and who is looking at whom. Hufflepuffs talking people out of buying a potion and or letting people know they need to be on the look out. Ravenclaws researching and working on counter potions, and writing petitions. The Gryffindors going between flat out arguing with them and waiting out the pranks they inevitably received, or starting shit in their shop in school.
When they leave to start WWW and still sell the Love Potions, a group petitioning for them to stop selling it because Love Potions are wrong.
Today i played a game with a small girl, i think she was maybe 11 or 12? She talked about so many cool map tricks and ways to use the characters, and was really, REALLY good at Phara.
After I complimented her on a nice play, she invited me to a group- and then her dad showed up too and said hello! We ended up all playing together. Eventually friends (and a couple that were just friendly teammates that she invited because they were cool) kept glomming onto our group til we had a full team and we Wrecked. Shop. I had no idea what I was in for.
In our last match together (she and her dad had to leave for dinner) she got play of the game by knocking four of the enemy team off the bridge at lijang tower in a tie breaker round.
AND she had gold in eliminations.
((Also, I’m sorry for accidentally cursing on mic that one time, I know your dad said it was ok but I still feel a little guilty! I don’t want to get anyone I play with in trouble. You and your dad were super nice, and I liked talking about all the cool stuff you knew about Overwatch. ))
first, I was a little disappointed that my upcoming Disney cruise is on the
Dream. I’m beyond sick of "Cars” (which Disney is just as bad if not
worse about over-promoting as “Frozen”), and both the Dream and
Fantasy unfortunately themed their quick-service counters after
“Cars”. But I’ve since heard that a “Wreck-It Ralph”-themed
sweet shop is being installed on the Dream when it goes into drydock, and my
cruise is after that. Now I feel better about being “stuck” on the Dream.“
Also, I expected there to be more oompf with Mon-El’s parents. Like I expected them to fucking wreck shop, but instead, they weren’t as evil as they were made out to be. Although when they sent him back to earth that was weird and it felt like they had some huge evil plan in the works IDK maybe its just me.
