Hobart Zombie March - Saturday, August 19th, 2017

Amski and I zombied up for the zombie march.  :D  Hell of a lot of fun and oh my god some of the other people there in their full zombieness were just freaking amazing.  We were kind of lax this year and just went as zombies sealed by magic talismans.

Our ofudas just say ‘zombies’ because there was no way I was going to pretend to write something in kanji that I’d probably 1) get wrong and accidentally write something terribly insulting; and 2) I’ve seen enough horror movies to know that you don’t scrawl down things you don’t understand. That way lies madness.


Alright! You guys asked for it. Boatsex oneshot. I wrote this from Daenery’s POV. This has major spoilers for Season 7. 


Daenerys sat looking out of the window in her cabin in the queen’s chambers on the ship. The ship Rhaego was sailing north towards White Harbor. The journey would be a long one going up North from Dragonstone, long and cold. They were going to sail to White Harbor, and then ride for Winterfell from there. Dany wasn’t looking forward to the biting cold that would await her and the rest of her army when she arrived. She wasn’t looking forward to another war, one she didn’t know could be won. Not just another war, The Great War. She thought.

Arriving in Westeros all those months ago, she never expected things would turn out like this. White Walkers, Night King, and dead ice men come to lay icy death to the place she was trying to liberate with her flames? She had merely come with the notion that she would be facing a Mad Queen, Cersei Lannister. Cersei Lannister proved to be a formidable foe, and the battle had only just begun when Jon Snow came to Dragonstone declaring the world was going to end because ice zombies were marching on some magical wall.

She thought he was a crazy northern fool when she met him. This man proclaiming himself King in the North. A kingdom that belonged to her. This man who refused to call her Queen, bend the knee, and even had the audacity to call her a child. This man who came in asking for her children, her armies, and her loyalty for help fighting these ice zombies, and he would give nothing in return. She’d be a fool to trust him. Oh, how she was wrong. She brought dragons back to life, walked through flames, and liberated hundreds of thousands of slaves, but she didn’t believe him about the army of the dead?

She didn’t know when she had begun to trust him. Was it when she let him mine the dragon glass, and he asked her if she believed him about the army of the dead? Tyrion saw fit to keeping him here as an ally. Was it when he showed her the paintings in the cave drawn by the Children and first men? She had pledged to fight for the north, or did she pledge to fight for him? Of that, she didn’t know. At the time. Was it when she came back on Drogon’s back to Dragonstone after burning the Lannister army to the ground? Jon has been standing right in front of her child and showed no fear. Did he have the blood of a dragon? Drogon had let him touch his snout. Was it when she saw the ice zombies herself when she came to rescue them from their icy deaths? Daenerys had seen many things, but these creatures symbolized death itself. Was it when he fell into the lake off Drogon’s back, or when Viseron fell from the sky? That she didn’t know either.

She realized then when he returned on his dead uncle’s horse, that she had trusted him all along. She believed him before she even saw it for herself. To say she was relieved when she saw Tormund and Gendry carrying him back in the castle at Eastwatch-by-the-sea would be an understatement. It took him a week to recover, and she was there by his side every second of the way. He told her he would bend the knee after she pledged herself to fight the White Walkers, and end her war with Cersei. For now.

I’d bend the knee but…” He said. He physically couldn’t bend the knee, as he was injured almost to the point of death. He was lying naked in a cot. Daenerys didn’t mind the sight.

“What about those who pledged to you?”, she asked.

“I will tell my people what happened here, and how you risked your life and your children to protect me and my men. The Great War is here, and there is no need a squabble over lands that may lie in ice and ash when the war is done.”

“I don’t want you to bend the knee. When the war is over and we defeat this Night King and burn Cersei Lannister to the ground, The North is yours.”

She didn’t know what compelled her to let the North have their independence after all was done, if there was a North left to rule. She hadn’t realized it until she left his room that night.

Daenerys was a stubborn, hard headed woman. She had lost the ability to feel when her sun and stars was taken from her by that evil witch. She had respect, pride, and admiration for those closest to her. She had love for her children, of course. She even felt lust when she had Daario in her bed back in Essos, although she felt nothing when she let him go.

“He wasn’t the first to love you, and he won’t be the last.” Tyrion’s words echoed in her mind. At the time, just mindless hope from her hand. Daenerys never thought the fire in her could ever be truly lit again. That is until she met Jon Snow.

He was stubborn and hard headed just like herself. He was demanding and self-righteous. He fought with her every step of the way, but he had an intensity and passion for his cause that made her admire him. She had grown to respect and trust him in a very short amount of time. She even heeded his advice when she rode Drogon into the battle at Highgarden.

She knew that she lusted for him from the start. He was handsome, after all. It had been so long since she felt a man’s touch. As she got to know him, that admiration and lust turned into something more. The fire that hadn’t been lit since Drogo had come back with not just a lingering spark, but an explosion. This fire was different from the one she shared with Drogo. Drogo had lit a flame in her that was dim and soft, and she had sometimes felt her love for him was forced. The fire Jon lit within her was burning, piercing, a fire that was as hot as the one that Drogon spewed from his mouth. She had seen that same fire, in his eyes, when she walked towards him in the cave full of dragon glass. He felt that fire too. That much was clear.

It wasn’t until that fire burned in her so hot when he fell from Drogon’s back. That fire could have melted the Night King’s heart.

As she thought of the memory, that was when she realized she didn’t just have a flame for him.

She loved him.

Daenerys was pulled from her thought when there was a knock at her cabin door. She wasn’t expecting anyone this late at night. She only wore a thin black dress, like the ones she wore back in the hotter days in Essos. Her hair was loose and framed her face, she didn’t feel the need to look regal anymore.

She crossed the cabin, and opened the door.

She let out a surprised shock to see Jon standing at her door in the middle of night with nothing but pants and a thin shirt on. His hair was loose, falling out of the bun he usually wore on his head. He looked like he had just walked through the flaming desert in the Red Waste. He had a wild look in his eyes, and she found it hard to look into them. His eyes had shined with a fire she had never seen in any man before, not even her sun and stars. Her breath stopped short.

“Jon?” was all she could say. You couldn’t cut the tension between them, even with Ser Beric’s flaming sword. Daenerys could only stare at him. The fire exploding through her stomach and down to her thighs. She felt like a young, inexperienced girl who had never been touch by a man before, not the powerful queen she had become. No man had ever made her feel like Jon Snow did.

She opened the door to the cabin and he stepped in still not saying a word. He just strode toward her like a wolf coming for its prey.

She didn’t know who kissed the other first. All she knew was that his lips were on hers, and she had never felt more alive. He bit her bottom lip, and entered his hot tongue into her mouth. She almost exploded just from that. He cradled her face in his hands, and her hands glided through his hair and untied the bun. She didn’t realize he had such beautiful curls. His hands roamed her body, and she a burned every time he would touch her exposed skin. Was this some kind of dream? Would she wake up in her bed alone, sticky and dripping with sweat, from the sweetest dream she’d ever known?

He backed her against the cabin wall with hard thud. She knew this was no dream.

He kissed her deeply and harder than any man had ever before. She kissed him back with just as much passion. His lips moved from her lips down to her neck and collarbone. She moaned in pure pleasure.

It all happened in a blur after that. He ripped her dress off her body, and threw her on the small bed. She ripped his shirt of him when he came on top of her. She saw the jagged scars that covered his chest. So, this was what Ser Davos meant when he took a knife in the heart for his people.

She slowed their movements. Tears swelling her eyes. She looked at him.

“How could they do this you?’

He said nothing, but his demeanor had softened and he wasn’t the wolf anymore.

He wasn’t a king then, nor was she a queen. Just Dany, just Jon.

She flipped them over, and kissed her way down his chest, not missing any scar.

She looked into his eyes, and saw that they swirled with nothing but desire, and dare she say it? Love.

Daenerys had always been a woman who loved to be in control when it came to making love. She loved the feeling of a man losing control underneath her as she rode them as fiercely as she rode her dragons.

Jon flipped them over, and Daenerys was the one to lost control.

He entwined her hands behind her head and looked deep into her eyes.

Gone was the stoic, brooding king. He was just Jon now.

He kissed her again all over her body, and then kissed her there. Something Missandei told her about when Greyworm had made love to her. “The Lord’s Kiss” she had called it.

It was a feeling she never wanted to go away. She screamed in pleasure and clenched her first into the furs.

When they finally came together, she saw stars. White, hot, burning pleasure filled her body. The flames had burned their way into her soul.

When he finally collapsed next her, and she calmed her breath. She looked at him.

He was staring up at the ceiling with a dazed look on his face.

She has never seen anything more beautiful in her life.

He winded his arm around her, and she settled into his chest.

She could feel his wild heartbeat, and the sound was more beautiful than any song she’d ever heard.

She loved him with her entire being. She knew that now. She wondered why it took so long for her to see that.

She didn’t say anything to him as she drifted to sleep.

She felt the ghost a kiss on her forehead.

Even though death was surely coming upon the world, she had never felt more safe.

One thing I’d like to point out

I’m still reeling from episode four (SPOILERS), more than I thought I would. I’m seriously shocked. It’s not secret I am no Daenerys fan but what she did here… well, I knew it would happen, I’ve expected it to happen, I thought I was prepared… I wasn’t. It disgusted me. I just gasped, my eyes were bulging and I couldn’t really believe what I was looking at. 

That said, the event there that I predicted shouldn’t overshadow what I didn’t predict. because I never actually believed she’d do what she did in that cave. They tried to make it romantic, but what they really did was just eternally destroy the ‘Daenerys really just means well’ arch. No matter how much I’ve always been openly crytical of her, I’ve always defended her ‘kindheartedness’. Well, no more. Done with that,  

Why? Because Dany dared to say what I thought would be even too low a move for her… I honestly never expected her to do what she did to Jon in that cave, it was repulsive and I cannot begin to describe how much it angers me. 

‘I’ll help you if you bend the knee, if you won’t bend the knee, you’re being arrogant and you’ll choose your ego over the safety of people, What’s most important to you Jon Snow?’.…. ?????? 

WUT? Let’s turn it around stomme slet met je domme aardappel hoofd: So Daenerys… are you saying you only want to save the world if you get to rule it? Shouldn’t you be ready to save humankind no matter what your reward is? Because you, I don’t know, care so much? Do you need an oath of fealty to help defend a land from murderous undead? I thought you genuinely feel so much for ‘the people’? I thought you were supposed to be a savior? So you really really do only care about yourself? Is it truly, really, all about the freaking throne? Is Dany really the only thing Dany can think about? Shouldn’t you just want to end a march of zombies because everyone should want to end a march of zombies? This guy you’re -trying to- eyesex with is kindly asking you to help him save the world goddamnit, he’s begging you to understand that if you don’t help him, there’ll be nothing but dead people for you to rule, and all you can nag about is him kneeling to you well guess what…. Daenerys Stormborn is a fucking terrible human being. She’s utter shit. I wanted to throw my food at her face. I thought I hated her all this time, I was wrong, I hate her now. Who the Seven Hells does she think she is? An USA politician? She’ll be a dreadful queen. She is an utter disaster of a woman. Kindhearted my   f r e a k i n g   a s s. Die Daenerys, D I E.

Jon Snow is not “undercover”.

There is, for some peculiar reason, a circulating idea that Jon is tricking Daenerys into bed in order to get her to fight with him against the Night King.

The theory is that since Jon slept with Ygritte to convince the Wildlings that he was one of them, he must be doing the same with Daenerys; that he’s willing to do anything to save the North, and this obviously must include tricking a woman who has already lost a husband and a child (and not to mention a dragon in order to save his ass) into thinking he’s in love with her.

Yep, that’s the honorable Jon Snow we all know and love. It’s totally the same as when Ygritte threw herself at him time and time again before he finally relented.

Except, no, it’s not.

Daenerys doesn’t make a great first impression with Jon. He knows of her (their!) family history and so it’s understandable that he’s apprehensive. It’s also understandable that Daenerys doesn’t immediately believe him when he says there are a bunch of ice zombies marching to destroy mankind when she’s never seen them before, and never met the man who’s trying to convince her. She knows Tyrion says he’s honest and honorable, but even Tyrion hasn’t seen him in years, so how does she know if he’s telling the truth? That this isn’t a trick to distract her? Both of them have reasons to initially distrust one another.

But then Daenerys takes the first step by allowing him to mine dragonglass, even going so far as to offer her men and her resources for nothing in return. This is a turning point in his opinion of her. He realizes she’s not the person she thought. Especially when he speaks to Missandei and she tells him how kind she is to her people and how they followed her because they actually believe in her, not because she was the daughter of some king from a foreign country that they never knew, let alone served. She tells him that Daenerys would allow her to leave if she wanted, that she would give her a ship and wish her well if she chose to go home. Jon sees here that Daenerys isn’t a tyrant the way her father was; that the people who follow her do so out of love and respect for her, the way the Wildlings and The North do with him.

After spending more time with one another (obviously he’s been with her a while, since Sansa mentions at one point that she hasn’t heard from Jon in weeks) they start to show attraction to one another, sharing looks that are quite obvious.

Personally, though it’s open to interpretation, I believe Daenerys fell in love first, when Jon approached Drogon and Drogon actually let Jon pet his snout, something he’d only let his mother do up until that point. She realizes there’s something different, something special about Jon Snow. I believe at this point he’s attracted to her, maybe has some feelings, but he’s still not letting himself go there because he’s on a mission and doesn’t want to let anything distract him.

The moment Jon falls for Daenerys is when she flies all three of her dragons north of The Wall to save him and his team. He finally sees that she’s truly different, that she’s willing to risk her own life and put her dragons at risk to save other people. That’s something not many rulers would do. Her father wouldn’t have, Cersei wouldn’t, Joffrey sure as hell wouldn’t have.

When Jon wakes up, the first thing he sees is Daenerys’s face, and even though she’s lost her dragon, she pledges to fight by his side, without him bending the knee. He chose, in that moment, himself, to bend the knee because she’s willing to risk everything she has to fight for The North, which obviously means putting aside her own ambitions to take the Iron Throne (which as I’ve said many times, she could so very easily do, even missing one dragon, if that’s what she set her mind to do). Jon now sees her as worthy, as being capable of being a good leader.

This ultimately leads to the point… Why, after Daenerys has pledged herself already, would Jon bend the knee, pledge himself publicly, and go to her in her chambers and seduce her to trick her into doing what she’s already agreed to do?

She. Is. Already. On. His. Side. He has no more need to convince her, because she’s already seen the Night King’s army and what they are capable of. She’s already agreed to help him. Why would he dishonor himself by seducing her after she’s already agreed to side with him?

It’s so different from Ygritte, who like I already said, threw herself at him over and over again, who he was still trying to convince that he’d left his Watch (though she knows better). Not to mention he actually did love her. Did anyone forget that he wouldn’t have sex with Melisandre when she climbed up on him, breasts bared, to seduce him, because he still loved Ygritte? This shows that Jon will not sleep with just anyone, he has to actually feel something for them. So when he realizes he can’t fight his feelings for Daenerys any longer, he goes to her. He takes the lead because he loves her. He wouldn’t dishonor himself, wouldn’t trick a woman who lost a dragon that she considered her child to save him, wouldn’t sleep with a woman he didn’t love, wouldn’t lie about pledging himself to a queen (costing him the support of another army in the process) all in order to trick a woman who was already on his side.

What would be the point?

I’m not going to swear an oath I can’t uphold. When enough people make false promises, words stop meaning anything. Then there are no more answers, only better and better lies.” - Jon Snow, The Dragon and the Wolf

Yep, seducing a woman, making her believe he’s in love with her just to gain access to her dragons and armies, which she’s already given, totally fits with Jon’s character. If you don’t know anything about him, that is.

My Heart Is Yours

Prompt: Requested by @noisilyloving5sos  “ Hello ^_^ I just want to say I really love your imagines! But can I request a Mikey Way imagine were you two are at college and he ask you out and your first date but I don’t want rush you doing this so I can just wait! thank you so much!”

and Anonymous “Hi! I was wondering if you could write a super cute and fluffy Mikey imagine, I love your writings btw!! 💘💘”

Word Count: 840

Pairing: Mikey x Reader

Your class gets out early, giving you time to head over to where Mikey’s lecture will get out and meet him with coffee. He looks exhausted when you see him, eyes dull and face scratchy, his dark hair is stuffed under a beanie and his glasses are smudged with fingerprints. You hand him the coffee and he smiles at you gratefully, backpack slipping off his shoulder as it’s weighed down with books and notes. You get swept up by the sea of zombie-like students, marching along like the exhausted drones you sometimes believe yourselves to be, only finding your own path when you get outside and the breeze blows different students in all directions-lectures, food, and sleep await. Mikey is quiet, just sipping his coffee and letting his brain check back into reality, and you take the time to just watch him like the love sick nerd you are. He’s always pretty but lately Mikey has really started to grow into his features, even if he still kinda looks like a dorky high schooler, and you gaze dreamily at his jaw line, his deep eyes and down his graceful neck. He could do with a shave and a shower but even with all that he’s beautiful, always is in your eyes.

“I have so much studying to do,” He finally speaks, tossing his now empty coffee cup in a nearby trashcan.

“That class is really kicking your ass lately.” You observe and Mikey shrugs, giving you that half smile he pulls out when he doesn’t know what to say. “I can help you study if you want.”

“Ya, thanks.” He replies, caffeine still not kicking in. He goes quiet then and just looks at you, eyes soft and you flush.


“Go out with me.” He says, not a question but it’s not rude or pushy; he says it like he knows you’ll say yes but he’s scared he’s wrong. A huge grin overtakes your face as you answer, ‘Like a date? Yes!’ and Mikey beams like he rarely ever does.

Jet Wolf Summarizes Act 22

As it turns out, the manga and I aren’t going to be great friends. Rather than spend the energy on a liveblog that’s increasingly negative, I’m reading each manga act (mostly) silently, and then writing up summaries at the end. I’ll be very candid, which means there’s likely criticism and snark a’plenty about the manga, either wholesale or in details. If that isn’t a thing you feel like reading, please skip this post!

The next part begins in a fresh volume of manga, but Minako’s rainbowy greeting is as pleasant as it’s going to get. It’s also the pinnacle of sense. Buckle up and assume crash position, kids, this one goes off the fucking rails FAST.

Picking up where we left off, Wiseman takes Chibi-Usa’s hand, only Mamoru Pluto senses it and loses her goddamn shit. If you, like me, ever wondered about the sound of evil, the manga finally has the answer to this burning question.


Mamoru Pluto says she has to stand guard, thus implying she ever does anything else. Meanwhile Endymion is showing off his library. “You must have every book ever written collected here!” says someone, quite possibly Takeuchi, trying to convince us that a few bookshelves that wouldn’t even house the entire body of Steven King’s work is “every book ever written”. Minako looks for the porn, and instantly confirms this is the worst book collection in history.


Endymion Who Is A Series Of Ones And Zeros And Incapable Of Physical Sensation somehow knows that the “pang in [his] chest” has to do with himself Pluto, because the story literally does not give a shit about sense, only its relentless zombie march toward page count. Mamoru assumes this means Chibi-Usa, and invites himself along. BUT NOT YOU MINAKO GOD THAT’S SO RUDE. Instead she gets to “hold down the fort”.

“What fort?! It’s a deserted palace filled with dead people and a shitty fucking library. ALSO WHY ARE YOU TELLING ME TO DO LITERALLY ANYTHING AND WHY AM I LISTENING TO YOU I AM THE GODDAMN LEADER OF THE PRINCESS’S PERSONAL GUARD.” But she shouted this at the two retreating backs, one of them holographic and yet still somehow more important than her, and stayed where she was told. “THIS IS REALLY PISSING ME OFF,” Minako literally says, finding her feet rooted to the spot for no reason other than authorial intent giving no shits about anyone who is not Mamoru.

It’s then that the cats – NOT MINAKO BUT THE CATS – find the Wikipedia page on “Death Phantom”, who I guess we’re still not supposed to know is Wiseman? Don’t answer that, I don’t actually care. According to the translation of the Wiki, Death Phantom DESTROYED Crystal Tokyo, which seems a tad concerning to me and maybe someone you’d not want to send to Planet Evil and forget about, but I’m sure you guys know what you’re doing. It also says NQS couldn’t kill him because of his “special powers”, though @maskedtranslatinganon tells me it should read  "But despite his crimes, he was still human. Thus, the queen could not bring herself to order him killed.” Given that, I feel comfortable saying Neo-Queen Serenity fucked up in a cornucopia of ways, not the least of which is IGNORING THE EVIL MURDEROUS FUCK AFTER YOU COULDN’T MAKE THE TOUGH CHOICE. The second she – as literally the only person who could – refused to deal with Wiseman permanently, she accepted responsibility for him. Brushing him under the rug and ignoring him for centuries is the opposite of that, and basically, fuck you, NQS. How many people, YOUR people, have died both then and now so your conscience could remain clean? And if this was going to be any part of this story, I’d actually be all over it. But I know damned well it won’t be, AND I’M SO IRRITATED.

While I was ranting, Pluto Endymion and Pluto Mamoru find Endymamoru Pluto unconscious. There sure is a lot of traffic to and from The Gate of Time for a place everyone is forbidden from visiting ever. Pluto should really start charging admission, maybe she could afford a plant, or a goddamn vacation. She says she knows Chibs has been transformed (?) and it’s caused a storm in space-time (??) and Mamoru knows he’ll find Chibs on the other side of the storm (???) but he needs a key (????)  for a thing which nobody knew would exist (?????) but he doesn’t stop two seconds to get it (??????) before running off and everything is very GWOOO.

Oh, remember when Usagi was in this story? Remember when she called her “best friends” by their names?


Usagi wanders for a while then eavesdrops on a conversation between Rubeus and Saffir, and then she just talks to Saffir, and things get so fucking inexplicable at this point I’m just not even going to fucking bother trying. Maybe it’s translation, maybe it’s lack of storytelling ability, maybe it’s the fact that I’ve been out of soda for three days and am dying inside. I’ll just sum it all up with this unedited panel:

Rubeus, showing the only ounce of sense in this thing, is like “This is some fucked up shit, yo, later.” Then Wiseman kills him, answering the question of why he survived this long. Just kidding, of course it doesn’t.


Mamoru wanders in the storm. Chibs finds him. She’s an adult now. Also maybe naked. Moving on quickly.

At Grand Central Time Gate, Pluto Endymion and Endymion Pluto and Minako Minako are all waiting when Usagi and MARSMERCURYJUPITER appear. Endymion runs off for some reason. WHY DOES HE NEED TO RUN HE IS A FUCKING HOLOGRAM. ALSO HOW IS HE HOLDING USAGI’S LATEST TOY


Usagi asks where Mamoru and Chibs are. Pluto says they’re lost in time together. USAGI GETS THAT LOOK ON HER FACE AND YOU KNOW WHAT SHE’S THINKING AND JESUS FUCKING WEPT USAGI

Also, I keep seeing this, and I can only assume it’s my subconscious crying out for help that will never come.

Jon&Dany's conversation for dummies
  • Dany: Bend the knee.
  • Jon: Nope.
  • Dany: Your ancestors swore faith to the Targaryens forever.
  • Jon: Yeah, that's Not Happening. Your dad burned my family alive.
  • Dany: Yeah well he WAS a bit of a nutcase. Sorry for that. I'm not my father's daughter. But for the sake of peace, please bend the knee. I'll even make you Warden of the North.
  • Dany: We will unite against Cersei.
  • Jon: It's not CERSEI you need to worry about. And I'm not bound by my ancestors' promises.
  • Dany: Then what are you doing here even like what the hell
  • Jon: I??? kind of??? need your help??? And you need mine.
  • Dany: I have THREE DRAGONS. I have the DOTHRAKI. And the UNSULLIED. And I need YOUR help?
  • Davos: Not with Cersei. You can best her any day.
  • Jon: But you haven't stormed King's Landing. You don't want to kill a lot of people. That already makes you better than Cersei. Kudos for that, btw.
  • Dany: Why do I need your help again.
  • Jon: Because the living need to unite against the dead.
  • Dany: The whaaaaaa.
  • Jon: We're all squabbling here like small kids.
  • Dany: Tyrion, he's insulting me.
  • Tyrion: … If it helps, I believe he's insulting EVERYBODY.
  • Jon: Dany listen everyone will die if we don't defeat these motherfucking zombies.
  • Dany: Lalalalala not listening
  • Jon: Listen there are zombies marching this way. Tyrion, I'm not a liar. The army of the dead is very real. If they get past the wall and we're squabbling amongst ourselves
  • Jon: *dramatic pause*
  • Jon: We're finished.
  • Dany: Your father's best friend sent assassins after me. Did your father know and approve of babies being killed in their cribs? [The irony is strong with this family I know]
  • Dany: I've been sold, I've been betrayed and raped and violated in more ways than you can possibly imagine. A lot of people have tried to kill me.
  • Dany: *more dramatic speech about having faith in herself*
  • Dany: The Iron Throne is my birthright.
  • Jon: You'll be ruling over a graveyard if we don't defeat the crazy zombies.
  • Tyrion: We're ALREADY in a war with CERSEI.
  • Davos: You don't believe us. That's fair. But also, FATE.
  • Davos: Listen, you have to believe us. Jon has no birthright. At all. [This sounds weirder the more you rewatch this scene.]
  • Davos: You say people have tried to kill you. Well Jon WAS actually ki–
  • Jon: *frantic stare to shut up his Hand* SHHH what happens in the North stays in the North
  • Davos: If we don't unite, it doesn't matter whose skeleton sits on the Iron Throne.
  • Tyrion: If it doesn't matter, why won't you kneel? If we unite against Cersei, we will defend the North later together.
  • Jon: *losing patience* There's NO TIME to fight Cersei. There's no time for any of this.
  • Tyrion: It takes no time to bend the knee.
  • Jon: And why would I do that?! I mean no offense, Your Grace, but I don't know you. Your claim to the throne rests entirely on your father's name, and my own father fought to overthrow the Mad King. [Probably one of the few accurate things Jon actually says about his father.]
  • Jon: And really, the lords elected me and I will lead them. I won't break their faith in me by kneeling to you.
  • Dany: Fair point. Also a fair point: I'm the rightful queen of the SEVEN Kingdoms. The North happens to be a part of that. In declaring yourself king, you're rebelling against me.
  • Varys: *comes in to save Jon from his aunt's wrath*

chapelseed  asked:

Aunt Tsu takes Eri to meet her friend Habuko, things go awry with Fujimi being not!Bakugou and causing another zombie outbreak. How much madness?

(this finally got me to watch the OVA XD)

Oh, plenty. Tsuyu and Habuko ran all over Isami high school to avoid the zombies, and through some wacky nonsense get separated from Eri, who finds herself smack dab in the middle of a zombie hoard. Just before the two of them get ready to wade through the not!undead crowd to save her…they see her getting picked up by one of the zombie students, who proceeds to make sure she’s tightly secured on his shoulders before continuing to chase them with the rest of the zombies.

Eri, who quickly figures out what’s going on, thumps a fist on the students head and shouts, “Stop!”

All at once, the zombie hoard ceases its march, Tsuyu and Habuko struggling to understand, though not complaining about, the fact that a bunch of zombies are listening to Eri and not going after them.


They all sit down without delay, and Eri’s face lights up as she realizes what’s going on, “Aunt Tsu! Big Sis Habu! Look look!” And indeed they look on as Eri continues to somehow command the brain dead students, telling them to jump, ran around, to throw her up into the air, she even tells them to dance. (”I saw it in a cartoon!” 

Habuko is confused as she looks on at the spectacle of Fujimi doing a moon walk (while taking pictures to show him later of course), “How is she doing that Tsuyu-chan? Is it her quirk?”

Tsuyu just laughs, far less surprised now that the initial shook wore off, “No, Eri-chan just has that effect on people.”

Eri is disappointed when the effect wears off, and Fujimi refuses to talk about it for months.

(When she has to leave Eri runs up to him and hugs his leg, “Thanks for the fun Big Bro Fuji!” She goes back to Tsuyu’s side waving goodbye as she does, leaving Fujimi to weakly wave back, a slight red tint to his face.

“Cute kid….” He looks to his side to see Habuko taking more pictures and laughing.

“Who knew you were good with kids Fujimi-kun?”


Nordstrom Badgley Mischka “Faux Leather Trim Long Trench Coat”- 


Megsy is selling her Goddamn trench coat at the Skybox. Just curious if there are any Nordstrom stores in the UK? Otherwise, this ad. is targeting the US public. I shop at Nordstrom, but I don’t give a shit about this coat.

Zombie March in the skybox! Enjoy it now that’s it for the never was.

Thank you 💜💜💜

A Competent Town Guard

External image

While this certainly isn’t true in all cases, I get this sinking feeling that villagers and the town guard can’t hack it in their daily lives. It’s as almost some of these places merely exist to get saved by dashing level 3 heroes. I don’t like it. I am a civil servant, and I lament the fact that heroes are constantly bailing out befuddled town guards.

I admit, if system worked, we wouldn’t have much of a story. When the town guard is properly equipped with magical crossbows (the D&D equivalent of MP5s), there is no reason to keep around unstable, fickle heroes. Imagine the kind of campaign that occurs when the local evil necromancer is apprehended by the town guard, and, due to minimum sentencing laws, spends the next 57 years animating corpses for local PSAs. 

The heroes, murder hobos as they are, would have nothing to do. The world is a happier, healthier place but the campaign is over before it started. There is no story to tell when the system works.

In reality, towns have a plan
The standard fantasy setting includes a ridiculous number of things that want to kill you and animate your corpse. Any borderland town will plan for local threats. Sure most of the town population probably can’t write, but they aren’t stupid: they realized that building their homes near a place called the “Tombwood” required some additional planning. 

Quick aside: back in the days of yore, King Edward the III basically required all able bodied men to learn how to use a longbow. The King wanted a population that could be drafted to die whenever he itched to fight wars in France. There was no need for the threat of monsters to spur this idea of a competently armed populace, killing one’s own species was enough.

Towns, especially those that experience trouble on the regular, should have some plan to deal with threats that they experience. Do zombies continue to march out of the Tombwood? There is going to be a watchtower on that side of town, maybe a wall even, and all able bodied people will know the drill. If they lived there their entire lives, they are probably even good at it.

There is tension here. If a town exists, it’s pretty good at taking care of itself, but invariably, to make the story epic, defenses have to be rendered sufficiently helpless or corrupt as to make the heroes existence a necessity. That’s the whole point.

So how do we balance the need to show the town and its officials as competent while still creating a campaign?
Well here are some of the tried and true traditional methods:

  1. Ignore it. Easy enough. There are lots of little things about the standard fantasy setting that we just accept. The townsfolk are weak as kittens, but somehow managed to survive out here all by themselves. 
  2. Town as Safe Zone. It’s a point of light in the darkness, and anything outside the walls is fair game. This makes the town appear competent from time to time, and still allows plenty of low level adventure. 
  3. Epic Evil. The town can normally handle 50 orcs, but now there are 200. Help. This is really useful when your players get higher in level.

Honestly? These can be employed effectively and will probably work wonders for your campaign. No one will question this. But to me, they seem hollow. I want something else.

Another way: Town guard as a faction.
If you are a good DM, you’ll have multiple hooks, objectives, or locations for the players to choose. Maybe, while the adventurers are out murdering the kobolds, the town guard takes care of the zombie problem all by themselves. All zombie loot would become property of the city due to a robust civil forfeiture law. After that, the local lord realizes that all of the tombs in the aptly named Tombwood are basically filled with treasure and it’s time to start mounting expeditions.

From there, the town guard becomes a character or faction in your campaign, functioning as a resource for your characters. They can help in times of need, provide hirelings, and gobs of supplies. The faction can also become a hindrance. What happens to Lord Dunnywit and the guard when they recover the Corrupting Obsidian Skull?  They turn evil. This could be especially effective if characters are close friends with Lord Dunnywit. What if he is their patron? Total. Drama. Bomb.

This can take away from the feeling that the heroes are special, but treating the town (and its guard) as living breathing entity as opposed to ducklings that need to be saved can lead to a more vibrant experience.
