The first time Tillman meets Silvaire Roadhouse, it’s at a post-season party at Loser’s Charles Village townhome. The first thing she says to him is “You’re not a very good pitcher, huh?”
i wrote a blaseball/dark tower crossover fic where the new crab is a gunslinger. i regret very little about this and think it was a great idea actually
if the dark tower isn’t your jam (you don’t need to have read it to read this, tbh) i also wrote another fic about the crabs throwing a house party after becoming two-time champions
i am thinking about silvaire roadhouse, who still has a crab across her chest and a revolver at her hip watching the skies before each game and wondering if today’s going to be the day that she finally has blood on her hands instead of just the itch of debt beneath her skin, and alt jaylen right before her in the lineup, who died in season 1 and never got revived, who’s so tired of hearing what the other version of her did, whether the stories are good or bad, and the two of them sitting side by side on the bench, not saying a word to each other as they wait for the moon to pass in front of the sun
yeah that pretty much sums it up

i’m part of the group sponsoring this week of blaseball! we’re 18 indie ttrpg designers who have come together and you can get all of our work in one go at this bundle link: [https://itch.io/b/931/indie-tabletop-blaseball-bundle] for $75
all profits from the bundle are going to be distributed equally among the designers so by buying it you are directly supporting 18 people and getting 18 really cool games out of it!
if the price is a little too much, you can click around the itchio pages of the contributors and see if something there strikes your liking! a lot of us have sales going on this week (you can get all of my games and my book of poetry for $20 right here: [https://itch.io/s/52102/ready-your-bats-and-bets]) so you can get games for cheaper than you normally would (and shhh a lot of us have community copies too if you can’t afford one even at a sale price)
check it out! have fun! and if you want recommendations of games to try from the bundle and the designers, you can [send me an ask] with how many people you want to play with and what kinds of games you like and i’ll give you recommendations!
I’m in this too!!!
i’m also in this!!
ending an argument by typing “youtube.com/watch?v=” then keymashing & hitting enter & having it miraculously link an inexplicable video of the person you’re arguing with in the beam of a flashlight wading through waist high garbage in a dark cramped stone tunnel whimpering & speaking in gibberish
when i was a kid i was completely obsessed and enamored with the word art in microsoft word and when they got rid of it i was genuinely crushed. literally does not get any better than this i miss you so much babe
doesnt have all the styles but this site has saved me
entranced recently not by “i can fix him” or “i can make him worse” but the “something deeply wrong with him and i want to be around as like a spectator when the car crash inevitably happens” dynamic
Hope people who know nothing about death note understand the human boy is the deeply unhinged one in this duo.
please google what an artichoke is
HOW TO OBTAIN HERRING
Hey Blaseball fans! We crashed Blaseball2 and now red herring are spilling into concessions…if you can find them.
Want some? Here’s how:
Make sure you have an open snack slot!
Go to Uncle Plasma and/or Liquid Friend’s player feeds -
And upshell the events with a red outline!
Herring will be added to your snacks in a 1:1 ratio - one herring for every event you upshell.
At least, that’s what we know right now! Blaseball just keeps happening today!
lorcan smaht i am speaking directly into your ear now. i need you to come home your sister has been attacked by sharks and also i need you to use your funky new socks to fix your era
heidis been at the vet recently and has to wear the cone but she keeps dragging it against the ground because she usually drops pieces of food scattering them everywhere so every time i go downstairs i get to be greeted with the site of this canine metal detector cruising across the kitchen tiles in search for treats akin to the way pigs search for truffles
I have been thinking of the Null Team concession stand all day and to be more accurate I have been thinking about Frasier on their shift.
Frog at the food stand, What Will They Do (promptly get fired from popcorn duty by a frustrated Scorpler, probably)
“Frasier, I swear to god if you—”
The tray of wet pretzels comes crashing down with a BANG as metal meets the tile of their stand’s tiny kitchen. Frasier, who landed safely on the other side of the counter, looks at the fallen pastries with wide-eyed wonderment and then back at an incredulous Scorpler.
I think my dream in life is to get one of those small, oddly specific jobs that always show up in quirky movies, like being a stamp artist or something
Let me support myself by going out in the woods with a normal sized easel with a comically small canvas to paint each stamp individually and I somehow have a house this way
idiots who make youtube video essays think the riverdale writers don’t know riverdale is silly, while the riverdale writers think they are self-aware geniuses making a camp masterpiece, but the riverdale writers are not even remotely aware of what they’re really doing, which is what actually makes riverdale a camp masterpiece.
there is something slipping into his head. it sounds like singing—music, loud music, drowning everything else out. it sounds like the black hole. it sounds—
axel winds up to pitch. the grin splitting his face comes naturally, easily, even though he’s going up against the fridays. he can’t be faxed in this game, anyway.
it’s after the game, when the music slides out, that he stumbles.
(or; the black hole is a reminder of the past.)
