I delivered a pizza to the Addams family, by means of flying. They were entirely unfazed by this and graciously accepted the pizza. I asked if I could come hang out in their grounds because they were very serene, which the Addamses allowed. I flew in so often they basically adopted me. I would eat the petals of the roses that Morticia cut from her plants, Gomez gave me desperately needed fashion advice, and I helped Lurch with the physical labor because I could fly.
I got in a commercial airliner to go to an anime convention with my friends. I sat in the front, right next to the pilot, with the cockpit being completely made out of glass. He flew down the interstate, under bridges, and into a parking garage under a building. We flew for about 30 seconds before he dropped us. The convention turned out to be a house party and there wasn’t even any food.

Once bonded to a Cleric, they follow spoken commands to attack, doing their best to impale enemies on any nearby sharp objects, which they energize to deal an additional 1d8 Radiant damage along with whatever Piercing is done.
with another plane crash and people losing lives - as a flight attendant, i can’t stress this enough - DO NOT TAKE YOUR LUGGAGE WITH YOU DURING THE EVACUATION!!!
i get it, you have your wallet there, your phone, your passport. what you don’t have there is your life and the life of people you are putting at risk. going down the slide with your suitcase is extremely dangerous, what is even more dangerous is send it before you - people are literally throwing bags on other people who are still on the slide. the weight limits are usually around 10kg, you do not want someone to throw 10 kilos on your head.
not to mention, you are delaying the evacuation, you are delaying other people from getting to safety.
let’s not forget how much pressure you are putting on us - your crew. we have 90 seconds to get everyone off the plane. we don’t have time to discuss with you, if you would be so kind and left yout bag on board (you’ve been told during the boarding btw, several times). we are under pressure AND we want to get out as well, because trust me, you don’t even begin to understand the danger you are in. if you are scared? trust me, we are terrified. and we still do our job, so please don’t make this hard on us, even if you don’t see fire. you don’t smell smoke. we aren’t in the water. if we tell you to leave everything on board and jump? you better jump.
now - from human point of view i get that leaving your personal items behind, in strange country, is scary. what i do, and i recommend it, is small, over the shoulder (hand)bag, with just your passport, phone and wallet. i doubt anyone would try to take that from you, it’s quite safe as it’s on your body and you can leave your bigger luggage on board.
so please remember, leave your stuff on board, it is not a joke. it’s not something we made up because we wanted to bother you. it’s because we want everyone (and ourselves) to getting out of there alive.
There’s just always something magical when you reach level 60 on a new character and can finally use flying mounts on them.
No longer are you a subject of gravity, or confined by cliffs and mountainsides. There’s no need to constantly be aware of all mobs within a fifty mile radius, at least in most places. And you don’t have to worry about memorizing shortcuts; with flight, the world is your shortcut. There is nothing more soothing as hearing the wingbeats of your gryphon/wyvern/dragon/other flying mount of choice and know you’ll be at your next questing spot in half a minute rather than five.
And all the while, you can get some pretty nice views.
he is still floating in the sky rising higher intoxicated by heat and light the wind in his hair and the feeling of freedom and he knows that he will fall but he is intoxicated falling covered in melted wax yet he laughs fire in the sky and he burns a flaming cascade a trail of ash and blood still laughing insanely enjoying the freedom all pain forgotten despite all his open wounds and the fall frees him raises him wakes him forever falling in insanity burning with the taste of freedom on his tongue and cheering on his lips a blood sacrifice for the gods but a burning heart for icarus
I have to admit, I expected it to sound better in English. It’s a poem I originally wrote in German and it’s one of the few I actually like… but it’s pretty hard to translate poetry XD
This post is not really NSFW, just ugh you’ll see. This is based on a post by @incorrectsanders
Anyways enjoy this one-shot!
Summary: Virgil and Roman each have their own YouTube channels and decided to meet up again so Virgil headed out to Romans house for the week. Of course, this requires one late night vlog as they go to the store to acquire movie watching essentials
TW: swearing, f**k marry kill game, flying, anxiety, That’s all I can think of, tell me if I need to add more
“Viiirrrrggiiillll!” Roman whines through the phone, causing Virgil to giggle slightly. “What is it Princey?” “I miss you, can you come over? “Oh yeah let me grab my stuff then I can walk on over to the other side of the state,” Virgil says laughing. Roman pouts on the other end of the phone “please” he begs “Roman you know I hate flying” “I know but I wanna see you” he says still slightly pouty. Virgil sighs running his hand through his hair “fine as long as we can get coffee from Brew-tiful Morning after my flight.” It was barely out of his mouth before Roman answered with a loud “YES!” Virgil giggled before asking when he should come over “ Hmm the flight from Destin to Orlando is about 3 ½ hours so maybe you could leave Sunday?” “Alright I’ll see you Sunday” “see ya Sunday,” Virgil says before ending the call to get his tickets and start packing. It sucked living so far away from his friends, but until a position opened up at the Orlando firm of his job, he was stuck here.
When the day came for Virgil to fly down to see his best friend (and crush) he started filming a vlog to see if it could calm him down. “Hello, everyone Virgil here, and welcome to my channel.” I’m filming this vlog to tell you I’m about to get on a plane, as you might have seen on my Twitter and Tumblr, Anyways I’m about to go see my best friend Roman Prince otherwise known as Prince Charming on YouTube, now as you all know I hate flying but it is worth it to go see my friends!” A voice comes on over the loudspeaker “flight 275 is now boarding” a lady says in a monotone voice “well that’s my flight I’ll see y’ all later bye” he turns the camera off and boards the plane his breathing jagged. After the plane took off he pulled out his phone and put some music on, then started texting Roman. 3 hours later when he finally landed he got off the plane grabbed his stuff and waited for Roman, still rather shaky. He sat out in front by the pickup line waiting for his friend to arrive. Two hours later and still have no sign of him and Virgil was seriously considering just walking to Romans. He stood shouldering his backpack and goes to pull his suitcase when someone grabs his shoulder, he whips around to come face to face with “Roman!” Virgil shouts throwing his arms around the taller male. “Hey Virge, sorry I was so late Belle got out again,” Roman says hugging the other. Virgil laughs “that dog,” he says referring to Romans yellow Lab. The two eventually separated, much to the disappointment of Virgil, and headed to Romans car.
After about 50 minutes on the road, they arrived at Brew-tiful Morning the bakery and coffee shop Patton and his husband Logan owned. When they walked in the almost empty shop a short man in a light blue polo and glasses looked up and let out a big squeal, running out from behind the counter and hugging Virgil. “Hey, Patton,” Virgil says to his brother in law “I can believe you’re here!” Patton exclaims. All the ruckus from the front of the small shop drew our local nerd out from the back. Logan smiles upon seeing his brother “did Roman make you come down here?” He asked grinning softly. Roman smiled “maybe..” the nerd pinched the bridge of his nose. “Hey, we’re about to close up shop! You should come over to our place for a bit, there’s someone you need to meet!” Patton says, Roman grins having already met them. Virgil thinking it was a dog nodded. A while later and two cups of coffee later the four of them walked out and drove to the Picani’s place. (foreshadowing) when they arrived before the other two Virgil was confused. About 10 minutes later their car pulled into the driveway. Roman covered Virgil’s eyes as the family walked in the house. “Alright, you can come in now!” Patton says excitedly. Virgil and Roman climb out of Ro’s car and walk to the house. When they get inside a little boy in a cute little tan sweater and pink tie runs up and hugs Roman “RO!” He shrieks “hey bud,” Roman says messing up the little kid’s hair. Virgil, on the other hand, was very shocked “Logan who’s this?” “Oh right, That’s Emile, your nephew,” Logan says casually as Emile runs up to Virge “HI VER-GAl,” the kid says happily stumbling over his name “Hey kid,” he says kneeling down next to him “can I get a hug from my new nephew?” The kid nods enthusiastically and launches himself at Virgil. “Patton and Logan your son is adorable” “I know!” Patton says excitedly. Hours later the two pinning boys leave the Picani’s and drive to Romans house.
When the two got home, or well to Romans house Virgil didn’t live there, they immediately (kissed, yeah no) put Virgil’s stuff in the spare bedroom. Virgil stood for a second looking around in his own world wondering what it would be like to live with Roman forever “CAN WE WATCH TOY STORY?!” A sudden shout comes from Roman’s kitchen, startling him out of his trance and giving him his answer. “Sure,” he says walking into the kitchen where Roman immediately hugs him tightly. Virgil chuckles and hugs him back. “Do you have any snacks?” “Uhhhh no… LETS GO GET SOME!!” Roman shouts grabbing Virgil’s hand and dragging him to the car. “Gah Roman slow down!” Virgil yells as he stumbles behind Roman. “No can do Stormcloud! WE HAVE SNACKS TO GET!” Roman says causing Virgil to blush at the nickname thank god he wore so much foundation. As Virgil climbs into the car he questions how he even fell for this dramatic theater nerd then he remembers because he’s kind and charming and selfless and so positive he’s beautiful and perfect and he fucking loves him.
Arriving in the snack and sweets aisle, which in Virgil’s eyes is absolutely where Roman belonged. Roman immediately ran to the sweets, the camera in his hand shaking with a chuckling Virgil on his tail Roman chucked bags of candy into the basket with Virgil removing the giant bag of candy that they most definitely didn’t need. Finally roman grabbed a box of Rice Krispies treats. “hey Virge? Snog, Marry, or Avoid?” Virgil thought for a moment “okay definitely fuck that one, marry that one, and kill that one.” Virgil said pointing at each of the different mascots. roman gasped “is that appropriate?” Virgil just smirked “I dunno, Ro,” Virgil says staring into the camera “this is not children’s television. I’m 30, I’m depressed, and I need edgy jokes to cope with my anxiety.” roman starts laughing and Virgil can’t help but stare and lose control walking closer and putting his hand on his cheek. Roman stops laughing to stare his face flushing and it only gets redder as Virgil leans forward and kisses him the two melting together.
