I-I’m sorry but I can’t stop thinking about this
My roommate just called from the kitchen to ask what was wrong because I laughed so hard I gave myself a coughing fit.
I’m so glad the music is what I thought it’d be.
About a month ago, one of our dogs got really sick and he passed away yesterday morning so this month is officially the worst
Also, I hate every vet that works at out local animal hospital
Omg but imagine the OPness of the Powerpuff Girls meeting the OPness of Danny Phantom. Dear lord they would be best friends
okay I– I know what I just said about crossovers but, imagine the PPG and Danny being the only heroes they’ll each work with because they’re the only “real” heroes in each other’s scopes. Danny is the girls’ spooky Casper-esque friend
But I’m not sure the Fentons and the Professor could meet, because
Just wait till he finds out he got his powers in a lab accident.
Science fiction is full of first contact stories, but is there a such thing as LAST contact? Decide exactly what that means, and write about it.
It was too late, when the humans came. They were a young species, still exploring outwards, vital and thriving.
We… were not.
War had ravaged us, and sickness, and war once again, until our population dwindled beyond the point of recovery. We struggled against that, of course… we used genetic manipulation, and cloning, and even more desperate measures. None succeeded. When the humans came, we were sinking into apathy, only a few tens of us left. We had begun to discuss whether we should commit a mass suicide, or simply wait to fade away.
And then the young species came, in their clumsy ships, and they asked us why we were so few.
“We are becoming extinct,” we told them. “We have passed the point of recovery.”
It is custom to avoid the races that are dying – once a species reaches the point of inevitable extinction, even war is suspended, and the fiercest enemy pulls back. The custom was born of plagues and poisons that could be carried forth from a dying world to afflict a healthy one, but it has the implacable weight of tradition now. After we are gone, after they have waited for the prescribed period of quarantine, there will be a fight for our world. Habitable worlds are few, and this is a good one, with plenty of free groundwater and thriving vegetation. It is a bitter thing to be grateful for the custom that allows us to die in peace, but we are grateful.
But the humans don’t know that custom, and they do not leave. They seem distraught, when we tell them we are dying, and try to offer their aid - but their technology is behind ours, and it is too late. When they realize that they can’t save us, though, they do something that bewilders us.
3-in-1 pfff listen nicky is a PROFESSIONAL. he uses that 17-in-1 liquid soap thing that works as shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, dish soap, laundry detergent, tile polisher, disinfectant, bloodstain remover and projectile weapon in a pinch. meanwhile, he carries travel-size versions of all of joe’s favorite products in one of those neat little organizer travel bags everywhere they go just in case.
This is because Yusuf is careful about which products he uses (he has to be!!) but always forgets something when they pack so Nicky is forever vigilant he has everything yusuf might need. He himself prioritizes efficiency and speed above all and if the 24-in-one works just fine for him (arguable, but he thinks so) then why change it? As for Yusuf’s soaps, Nicky thinks that Yusuf being comfortable and happy is not only the most important thing but also is still prioritizing both of their efficiency and speed so it’s a win-win.
reasons the first mass effect game is feral
- you can dress your squad in matching pink and white armor
- you can force a man to give you an omnitool you might not be able to use
- when you land on a planet you literally just drive ur tank out the back end of the normandy and hope you land on all four wheels
- sometimes the mako gets stuck on a rock and then u have the restart the entire mission
- the implication that you are driving up an almost 90 degree cliff sheer with three people in it
- your boss/dad punches people to commit treason and then you can nominate him to be all of humanity’s representative
- you can just call the council and hang up on them and the fact that the devs know people did that is referenced in the games after
- “the colonists don’t know what they’re doing throw these neutralizing grenades at them instead. punching them also works.”
- the fact that to get from ilos to the citadel u drive ur terrible space truck directly into a mass relay and it FLINGS you at the citadel like a slingshot
mass effect 2 and 3 are also kinda feral in their own ways but they’re like please do these organized missions and help ur friends and we have a special shuttle to take u everywhere and later we have a guy who will actually fly you places and help you and everyone knows you by name but in mass effect 1 you talk to people and they’re just like who the fuck r u loser and then you let the rachni queen go
it’s fucking incredible
Someone come talk to me about skills/hobbies that Joe and Nile would have that have nothing to do with art, please
