- I’ll do my best, too. So that we can enjoy our date.
- What was that? Can you say it again?
This week on @letterstosestrilles, Elyn offers a favor and Tyko has a few things he’d like to say to his sister.
We didn’t play this week, but I had a few things I wanted to catch up on!
A little detail on Percy that I didn’t see until just now… A little family portrait! Sojourner, Spirit, Opportunity, Curiosity, and Perseverance, all in a cute little graphical representation right on Percy’s back.
I’m literally crying again y’all, I fucking love these babies.
Reblogging again because I think they included Ginny, the helicopter that went to Mars with Percy. 😭
So this isn't really a comment on your new (!!!!) Five Dragons fic, bc I haven't read said story yet, but I wanted the record to reflect that this is bc I am TOO excited to read said story and am saving it as insurance against a bad day, because your fics are one of the few things that I can always always depend on to truly and substantively and nourishingly make me feel better. I am like that dog in the comic - "No read! Only hoard!" But also you deserve all the validation! <3 <3 <3
Anon, darling! <3 What an extremely lovely thing to say!
I know there are things that I don’t watch or read because I’m saving them against a time of need (ask me how long it took me to watch Leverage despite KNOWING I would love it), and I’m really honored to fall into that category for you. Even if I may not get a comment for a while (hopefully a long while, I don’t want you to be in need of comfort in the near future!), I will be treasuring this one just as much.

I get antsy when I haven’t produced content in awhile. I worry I’ll be forgotten. I feel like I have to keep buying my place in fandom with stuff like art and writing. Which makes it hard to produce content because that’s a lot of pressure to put on my creativity muses. So I sit here worrying instead.
HOLY SHIT THIS IS SUCH A MOOD
To everyone in the fandom who has been posting this the last few days: You are not obligated to continuously produce content. You are valued within this community by others, no matter what. I promise you that. You will not be forgotten. Don’t feel pressured. Do things in your own time. You are awesome. You are talented and you are welcome here always.
Every DnD game that starts out with a serious “Lord of the Rings” type of tone turns into a Monty Python sketch and every DnD game that starts out like a Monty Python sketch turns into Lord of the Rings
DnD game with characters named Kua the Brave, Enoch Bluehelm, and Hallow Greaves: Our current mission is to save the kingdom from the Dark Queen Ravenbone but we fucked up a charisma roll and now Kua and Ravenbone are dating and the king of Fendale was turned into a frog
DnD game with characters named Bunny Wabbit, Ford Trukk, and Dildo Baggins: Our current mission is to find a birthday present for a spoiled prince but in the process we found a lich planning to devour the life force of everyone in the land and Dildo gave his life to stop him in a scene so moving it won the Newberry Medal
If you give your players room to do whatever they want, including be silly, they will most often choose to express themselves. And you’d be amazed how much you’ll start to care about characters once people have attached little pieces if their soul to them.
If you try to enforce a “serious” tone, it just makes the gags funnier, and your players will treat you with the same casual blasphemy orangutans show to God.
“But you are a good team.”
“Team, my ass. We’re a mess.”
among them, it passed for ‘good luck’
See? She doesn’t want to.
fun fact about languages: a linguist who was studying aboriginal languages of Australia finally managed to track down a native speaker of the Mbabaram language in the 60s for his research. they talked a bit and he started by asking for the Mbabaram word for basic nouns. They went back and forth before he asked for the word for “dog” The man replied “dog” They had a bit of a “who’s on first” moment before realizing that, by complete coincidence, Mbabaram and English both have the exact same word for dog.
