you know. like cats when they love someone QwQ
oh ! how about "I need a date for this wedding"
"I need a date for this wedding," Taako declares with a mouth full of cheesy fries, "And you need a date for this wedding, are you seeing the algebra here?"
"Are you really going to go?" Kravitz pulls his straw out of his milkshake to get an oreo chunk unstuck. "I don't know about you, but I try not to think about people from high school."
"You think about me," Taako teases, and Kravitz tries not to choke on the oreo. It's true, is the problem. To an embarrassing degree. But Taako can't know just how Kravitz thinks about him, because they've been best friends since second grade and if he ruined this friendship he might as well walk into the sea.
"Uh, well," Kravitz takes a long slorp of milkshake and pretends he doesn't have a lot of feelings on the matter. "You're different."
"C'monnnnnnnn. We should be cheering Sabine and Jess on. They've broken up like fifteen times, the least we can do is, you know, remind them they're fucking meant for each other. Also I have a sick outfit planned already and I haven't had a chance to wear it since I shoplifted it from the thrift store and I want to eat cake, Kravvy, c'moonnnnnnn-"
Ah. Pulling out the big guns. Kravitz swipes one of Taako’s fries and pretends to think about it, like Taako’s big sweet puppy dog eyes don't immediately melt his resolve into one big gummy bear soup in a hot fucking car.
"You know you want to," Taako needles. "Come on, it would be so fun to pretend to be dating. People already assume we are, it would be hilarious."
"Right," Kravitz breathes, willing his heart to beat normally and less like a ketamine tambourine. "Hilarious."
"I wonder how long we could get away with it. I'll bet we could convince everybody all weekend. Oooh, and then we could pretend to break up, and get everyone's attention, man, that would be so fun. Fuckin, love that drama. Oh my god, do you think you could catch the bouquet?"
Kravitz thinks he might have caught something, and it's a terminal disease called feelings. Symptoms: terrible sweating, heart palpitations, hallucinations, loss of appetite-
"What do you say, you wanna be my boyfriend?" Taako grins, and then hurriedly amends, "My fake boyfriend, I mean?" He chuckles nervously, and Kravitz struggles to laugh too. He's currently a little overwhelmed by the sound of the ocean in his ears.
"Uh, sure," he hears himself saying, over the waves and seagulls and existential crisis. "It'll be. Fun! Plus, you know. What could go wrong?"
Canonically, Lucretia was first accidentally inoculated by the Voidfish after being splashed and getting some of the tank water in her mouth.
I like to think she didn't make the connection that it was specifically about drinking the ichor, and that when it came time to inoculate Maureen and Lucas, she dumped a bucket of gross jellyfish water over their heads.
nothing beats the experience of going thru tumblr after the TAZ balance finale,,, that was my real community right there
So I read this fic (I'll link it in the notes) in which there was this very emotional parallel between Taako realizing he has a sister for the first time, and post-Stolen Century Taako remembering that he has a sister. Just had to illustrate it :')
the wizards pondering their orb or whatever i didn't watch the adventure zone
ID: First image is digital art of the IPRE crew gathered around the Light of Creation, a pale blue ball of light, currently resting on a table. They are all dressed in red robes and appear to be having an intense discussion. On the far left is Lucretia, a human woman with short, curly hair. She is holding a book in one hand and pointing at the light with a pencil. On her right is Davenport, a gnomish man with neat looking hair and mustache. He is leaning one elbow on the table and resting his other hand on his hip. On Lucretia's left is Lup, an elven woman with shoulder-length curly hair, slight build, and freckles. She in angrily thowing her hands up in the air. To Lup's left is Magnus, a human man with short hair, muscular build, and thick sideburns. He is leaning on the back of a chair and is starin at the light of creation with the only bored expression in the group. Next to Magnus is Barry, another human man with a chubby build, short hair, and glasses. He is vaguely gesturing with open palms. Next to him is Taako, an elven man with long, curly hair, a slight build, and freckls. He is rubbing his forehead with a hand. Next to Taako is Merle, an older dwarvish man with a beard and a receding hairline. He is gesturing one hand at the light. The second image is a close up of Magnus with everyone around him blurred out. A caption pointing to him reads, "zoned out 20 minutes ago." End ID
IM LOSING MY SHIT
"The past...it isn't pristine. It's not an immutable record of our triumphs, or our failures. It's just as in flux as the future."

[Image ID: First image is the word IMBALANCE in blurred white, red and cyan text like an old tv with the color misaligned, set over a cracked and broken Bureau of Balance symbol on a dark blue background. Second image is five squares outlined in neon purple, one for each person in the virtual room. Top left is Travis McElroy, top right is Griffin McElroy, bottom right is Clint McElroy, bottom left is Justin McElroy, and in the center is Aabria Iyengar. They all have various combinations of headphones and mics, and Clint is in the middle of a word. Justin has placed his Umbrastaff and KrEbStAr in the background of his shot, and Travis has placed the Flaming Raging Poisoning Sword of Doom in the back of his, and I love them for it.]
