WHO LIVES IN A PINEAPPLE UNDER THE SEA–?

Barbarian Must have a demonstrable temper, go off I guess
Bard Must be able to play an instrument
Cleric Must be involved in a religious organization
Druid Must have demonstrable knowledge of, or passion for nature
Fighter Must beat the DM in physical combat (hope your DM’s a wimp)

Rogue Must sneak up on the DM (Hard mode: steal their dice)
Sorcerer Must have a powerful family heirloom
Warlock Must work for a powerful entity (Corporations, The Government)
Wizard Must have a College Degree or a 3.0 GPA
If you can’t be any of these you start as a commoner, and may become one of these classes when you finally satisfy these conditions.
if youve never physically been in the presence of like, a real live wolf, and you probably wont get the chance to, heres some stuff about them you should know
- a wolf’s fur is so unbelievably thick that you can get like, your whole hand into it while petting. and then you can keep going
- wolves are a lot bigger than you think they are. think about how big you think a wolf is then just like double that
- they dont really smell like dog but they DO smell and youre not going to be able to figure out if its a good smell or not
- a wolf really wants to lick the inside of your mouth. he will not stop trying to lick the inside of your mouth at any cost, and generally speaking you need to press your lips together kind of tightly when he approaches your face so that he doesnt worm his damn tongue in there to give you what he thinks is an appropriate greeting
- a wolf doesnt really want to look at you while you pet him but he wants you to pet him. hes embarrassed
- if a grown ass wolf decides to lay down on you, you just have to deal with it and thats your life now
- young wolves, much like young dogs, are overwhelmingly goofy and stupid. a teenage wolf will see your very fragile, very human shoulder and go “i can probably step on that with my full weight” and then he will do it
- letting a wolf eat out of your hand is actually not remotely frightening, and youll want to do it all day
I wanna know who did this research.
well, i did!
in the interest of science, have tested & can confirm
GIVE IT UP FOR DAY 15
You can only reblog this 12 times a year
Make the most of that
Every month I reblog this and every month I’m baffled that it’s already the 15th.
I’m scheduling this for every month
God I was at that restaurant in Annapolis yesterday that serves those 4 lbs milkshakes and these two dudes were just finishing one together and people were asking them for tips and they were like “you have to get like mint chocolate chip or something because if there’s no texture it gets too boring to finish” and all I could keep thinking was that it can only be a matter of time before some god wipes this town off the map and we will have earned it with our disgusting hubris
Everyone who has ever finished one of these will have it weighed against a feather when they die
Listen. After the Burger Incident of 2016 I’ve learned to accept my fragile mortality and live within the boundaries set for humanity by the Universe.
I’m a little nervous but my curiosity is overwhelming~ what, pray tell, is the Burger incident of 2016?
In 2016 the day Pokémon Go came out I worked up a big appetite with my friends and we went to Steak ‘n Shake and I decided that none of the burgers looked big enough which…..I don’t know if I thought the photos on the menu were actual size I don’t know what was going on but
I asked the server for the biggest one they had and she said “that’s the 7x7, it’s not on the menu…you don’t want that”
And immediately my friends knew I was fucked because I felt challenged which I blame on my middle child syndrome and also on that I am by birth just an idiot so I ordered it without knowing competitive food bloggers write entire articles about this thing.
I sort of knew I was in trouble when the cook came to see who’d ordered it but I wasn’t backing down and in the end I ate all 1300 calories and THEN the fries and ALSO my shake and I had to go to my friend’s and take a three hour nap and when I woke up I was so fucked up that I just started eating leaves straight off her mint plant because antacids weren’t going to cut it.
Then I complained for like two days and Ultimately I learned absolutely nothing.
In case anyone wanted a visual for the 7x7
When you can’t decided between pride and gluttony so commit both sins at the same time.
This is the only comment allowed now
I want to make a joke about how you bit off more than you could chew but like….
afatbabe :You’re not measured by how people react to you.
If you’re not noticed, you’re still valid.
Like, if no ones gonna read it, you should still write it.
If no ones gonna see it, you should still do it.
If no ones gonna hear you, you should still say it.
You’re not measured by how people react to you.
First Person Perspective: Written in such a way as the protagonist is narrating or recounting the story to the reader, i.e. “I said this, I did that.”
Second Person Perspective: Written in such a way that the reader is the protagonist of the story, i.e. “You said this, you did that.”
Third Person Perspective: Written in such a way as the reader is a bystander to the story, watching it happen but not involved, i.e. “He/She/They said this, he/she/they did that.”
I’m not about to kinkshame a whole aquarium but
carry me into the sunset, my cephalopod prince
friends, you don’t understand. This ad campaign was goddamn HUGE. They bought out the entirety of multiple train stations in Boston with these. There are so many more, and they’re all this same beautiful combination of questionable/amazing.
This is the best thing in my life
Great, now we gotta kinkshame the cephlapods
1) the cephalopods have done nothing, these adverts were made by humans, do not blame these innocent creatures for the things that make you uncomfortable.
2) Jellies are not cephalopods they’re medusozoas
3) …ngl i really really love cephalopods i think they’re fascinating and octopodes especially are SUPER THRILLING to me because they’re so fucking smart, and I would feel, frankly, honored to be embraced by an octopus.
…It’s just occurred to me that I am possibly part of the target demographic for this ad campaign.
Anarchist tip: if you need some piece of equipment, or anything really, look up if there are any alternatives designed in or otherwise for exploited countries. People have invented many of the necessities for renewable power, medicine, machining, internet - all the comforts of modern life really - in ways that are low-tech, small-scale, often made of recycled or abundant materials, using little to no electricity, and best of all, absurdly cheap
Great for squats, occupations, communes, mutual aid, personal independence, etc.
Concept: a character designer who’s horny on main but only horny for his male characters and not his female characters
Female characters: *short fat woman, tall thin lanky woman, average height woman with muscles a lil chub, woman with a pear shaped body, old hunched over woman, non humanoid character*
Male characters: *buff half naked dude, buff half naked dude, buff half naked dude, buff half naked dude, buff half naked dude, buff half naked dude*
If Cthulhu can be summoned by humans who are so far beneath it, why can’t humans be summoned by ants?
The answer is they should be.
Well if a bunch of ants formed a circle in my house I’d certainly notice, try to figure out where they’d all come from, and possibly wreak destruction there.
That’s why knowing and correctly pronouncing the true name is so important to the ritual. Imagine how impossible it would be to not go take a look if the circle of ants started chanting your name.
And they’re like, you can’t leave because we drew a line made of tiny crystals - now you have to do us a favor.
And you’re like, let’s just see where this goes “yup, you got me… what’s the favor?”
and usually the favor is like, “kill this one ant for us” or “give me a pile of sugar” and you’re like… okay? and you do, because why not, it isn’t hard for you and boy is this going to be a fucking story to tell, these fucking ants chanting your name and wanting a spoonful of sugar or whatever.
And SOMEtimes you get asked for things you can’t really do, one of them, she’s like, “I love this ant but she won’t pay any attention to me, make me important to her” and you’re like… um? how? So you just kill every ant in the colony except the two of them, ta-da! problem solved! and the first ant is like *horrified whisper* “what have I done”
This is the best explanation for higher powers I’ve ever really heard.
I would like to REALLY SUPER THANK @centience for their WONDERFUL adoptables auction, as well as their amazing closed species, the Omnia!!
I fell in love with this boy the moment they posted the WIP here on tumblr, and as luck would have it, I actually won the auction for him!! *cries*
As such, I did a little bit of work to pull him into my style, and I’m figuring out his powers, name, and personality as I go! Though he’s being really quiet about sharing any of those details with me so far…
From what I can get, though, he’s pretty withdrawn, doesn’t talk much, and is very lonely. He seems to want to get closer to people, but for some reason, doesn’t. He’s shown some form of control over light, and seems to enjoy playing with ribbons of it in the air.
THANK YOU AGAIN, CENTIENCE! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HIM!!
A little update <3
I still read all of your lovely replies! I have not given up on art my friends! I have even started my own webcomic on webtoon! It’s called Seth In Space and it would mean a lot to me if you would support me there! Love you all and happy halloween!!
Happy Halloween, Rose. Hang in there, darling. It takes time to feel better, but you’re doing it.
