I might be old or something but wtf is no cap
early thoughts on exu:
damn aabria goes balls to the wall with dumping potential plot threads in front of her players and i am here for it.
i'm usually a theorizing/predicting kinda person but here? there's no way to predict this group, they will literally never take a single logical or easy action and they all pretty much failed any attempt at rolling plot relevant lore.
i'm just vibing for once and it's weird but good? okay, maybe a little theorizing but it's like....whatever, this is fun.
matt sounds like a cross between henry crabgrass and yeza brenatto and i love it. running with @primrose-path-of-dalliance idea that dariax's divine connection is with corellon the archeart. dude is chaos incarnate, corellon is CG, and corellon's connection with the fey and such would handily explain aabria's turquoise and pink die choice for dariax. it would also be the very subtle inter-campaign link matt prefers (being that caleb was rescued by a cleric of the archeart).
aimee has flung herself into the chaos and gracious her vibes with dorian and dariax are fun. i think opal is using a fake name and still calling that she works for the raven queen. her pink daggers are a choice and i am here for them. i was super surprised when we narrowed opal down to human; after the twin and hometown reveal i was 80% sure she was a half-elf.
what are you hiding, orym? no seriously, what are you hiding? there's something just a tad off about him that i am super curious about. also, good on aabria for handing a lot of the big lore backstory to the guy with the highest int and the player who will never reveal it in game through anything except his body language. power move there.
fearne is just the best. at first i thought she and orym had come into town together from like the fire and air ashari but nope. i love the mass of contradictions around this faun.
dorian is also hiding his real name, i think. not just his last name but his first. he's probably air genasi with that art. super interested in whether he comes from a family of air genasi or if he's the first. either way, i think he will shape up to be the party's leader and i can't wait.
gonna try a cold shrub process this weekend maybe to see if that makes them a little less vinegary than the hot shrubs i do
all teams turned on the illegal engine and ferrari just didn’t get the memo :/
You’re laughing Jared paladeckki is quoting Julius Caesar and you’re laughing
For the past 2 days i've been falling asleep to cold crime/murder cases solved in 2020 and lemme tell you... Waking up in the middle of the night in cold sweat because the talking affected the things you dream about it is NOT pretty
I want a strawberry crepe more than anything right now
me , every time i do something knowing full well i could wait but nOOO
i know it’s supposed to be like emotional or whatever but this does nothing for me because more than half these characters were racist and never apologized. a cute clip changes nothing of how badly yasmina was treated and i know people wanna cling to the good parts but after all the bullshit wtfock pulled i can’t
Love when I’m telling a friend about something I find interesting and they just cut me off by saying I really don’t care… lol this is why I ghost people because no one truly gives a fuck about you in the long run
Things I would change about MXTX's books:
- add explicitly canon, obviously-on-purpose trans characters whose genders are treated with respect by the narrative if not by individual characters (Shi Qingxuan was... a start... but I wonder if she knows nonbinary people exist)
- I've heard there's racism? I don't know anything about the groups involved but that's obviously not good if it's true
- more stuff about the side characters! they're so cool please focus on them!! maybe more of them could even be explicitly queer!!! I'm not even asking for happy endings for them, I'm sad about Xiyao but their tragedy fit the narrative really well
- no more censorship from the government, please give us canon Hualian sex scenes
That's it. Do the last two even count? I obviously also want more of her books in general.
I love reading explicit, well-written queer romance. I absolutely could not write a post like this about Supernatural, it would be like that comically long contract Crowley rolls out in that one GIF.
am i funny now
I love my bf’s son to death he is soooo smart and funny and clever as hell but he is so spoiled and competitive and I just see myself in him so much !!!! I used to get myself so worked up and uncomfortable and MAD about shit that was no big deal and I was literally mean to people esp my sister and it was fucked up! And then I was talking about it with my mom asking her the best way to handle it and she was like “Oh haha yeah you used to be very controlling and attention seeking at times but I thought it would eventually grow out of it and into good leadership skills and I was right!” Omg my mom is an amazing person but I literally told her it didn’t manifest in good leadership skills it manifested me seeking validation in capitalism and a controlling BF and then reaching critical mass having a complete meltdown and finding myself stepping back and looking at myself as a child and going “Oh yeah, that’s where that all comes from” She was like ☹️ I felt kinda bad but the lack of boundaries put on my behavior followed by the expectation that I was Gifted and Talented and I was the Good Eldest Daughter Who Had It All Together… like I’m still unpacking that stuff. I don’t want to blame her bc I’m 30 years old and even tho she’s a therapist she’s not my therapist and she has grown and learned so much too right, like she’s not just my mom she’s her own person with her own life and journey. I’m grateful I can talk frankly with her about this stuff but it didn’t exactly assuage me in any way. This kid is just so sweet and sensitive and when he acts out or freaks out my heart just breaks because that was me and it wasn’t handled right and it really gave me a complex. Anyway good morning LOL
it's so entertaining being THAT friend that deals with all the simps you never wanted
the epic highs and lows of still being invested in a show that ended seven months ago but is still important to you because you watched it in your teen years and it had a fundamental impact on you and somehow one of the lead actors of this exact show is even more obsessed with it and now you’re getting a prequel of a story with one of the most hated characters of all time and you’re still gonna watch it because you’ve been gaslighted and brainwashed by this show for years and somehow you still have hope that it might turn out good and now it’s too late to turn back anyway
