“Hail to you, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Ruler of Rulers, who took possession of the Two Lands even in the womb of Nut; he rules the plains of the Silent Land, even he the golden of body, blue of head, on whose arms is turquoise. O Pillar of Myriads, broad of breast, kindly of countenance, who is in the Sacred Land: May you grant power in the sky, might on earth, and vindication in the God’s Domain, a journeying downstream to Busiris as a living soul and a journeying upstream to Abydos as a heron; to go in and out without hindrance at all the gates of the Duat. May there be given to me bread from the House of Cool Water and a table of offerings from Heliopolis, my toes being firm-planted in the Field of Rushes. May the barley and emmer which are in it belong to the Ka of the Osiris Ani.”

I was doing so good getting caught up with this show last summer to watch the new season as it aired, but then I got sick and that waylaid everything. Time to get back into it.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.


i. Scenarios
① kidnapped for ransom - everyone wants to make a quick buck. and what quicker way is there than ransoming someones life. Not that everything always goes to plan. Let's just hope that everyone comes out alive and happy.
② kidnapped for revenge - Someone was on the wrong side. Maybe it's the significant other of an Ex. Maybe it's the Ex themselves. Or perhaps it's even more complicated than that. Either way, there's nothing sweeter.
③ cracknapping - Okay, so you didn't mean to drink that much, but now you have woken up in a room with a bunch of mascots from the game and what is going on?
④ kidnapped for help - We need you help. Whether you're willingly up to offer it or not.
⑤ kidnapped for their own good - Want to get you out of a bad situation. It's for your own good. Trust us. You're safe now, you won't be hurt any more.
⑥accidental kidnapping - okay. so this wasn't... exactly what was planned. But looks like we've got an extra person now. W H O O P S ???
⑦ wildcard - Anyway you want it.


ii. relationship
① kidnapper and kidnapee - The prize and the thief, what better combination?
② kidnapee and rescuer - Don't worry, they're here to save you.
③kidnapees! - Well. Stuck together. This is a good bonding moment.
④ kidnappers anonymous - All of you need to get together and feel bad about yourselves.
⑤ wild card - That's the way you need it

Rules:
» POST with your character, canon and prefs in the subject line.
» COMMENT to other threads and pick a number. (Or let RNG pick.)
» THREAD out the scenarios!

THE IC CONFESSION MEME



Has your character ever wanted to confess something to another character, whether it's good or bad? Well, here's your chance for your character to confess to whatever is on their mind!

Rules:

01. Post with your character and fandom.
02. Post to other characters, either logged in or anon, and tell them how you really feel!
03. Remember, this is an IC meme, not an OOC one. Do not bash or flame others OOCly. And please remember not all characters get along so don't be offended if a character doesn't like yours.

This meme was lifted from all the others that made it before me.

I know we're not engaged anymore, but that doesn't mean you're not allowed to feel bad about what happened to him. I feel bad about it, too. I always wanted the best for Connor, and it's not like Dino wouldn't understand. After all, we've all been through some rough times.

You should never, ever feel badly about caring for someone. That's what makes us human.

Avenger's Infinity War

I watched Infinity War
and
that is just a bad movie.

The way it was filmed and framed and all only made sense if we're meant to give a damn about Thanos having feelings
like, we get multiple moments that should be about fallen heroes or something and we are instead watching his face
and it's... junk. I mean, his argument for doing the thing is junk. That should go without saying. He is a bad guy doing a bad thing, and we don't care if it hurts his feelings.
So the movie is garbage.

Also, I was bored. Actively, wandered away to get snacks, stopped half way through for a while, bored.

Read more... )

I realise I've seen all the spoilers and all the crit on tumblr and I'm echoing a lot of the negative opinions here, and I guess the film makers were really invested in people seeing the movie without spoilers, so they'd say that would be a different experience. But that wouldn't answer the problem I had with it, because I wasn't expecting it to be bad in the specific ways it was bad, that still surprised me.

Also it's not just the specific plot that pissed me off, if they want to tell a story about superheroes screwing up then this was certainly one they could tell, everyone had feelings at mostly plausible moments. It's just how it was told, it seems like the writers like Thanos? And think he made any tiny bit of sense?

Which is garbage.



So this film was boring nonsense.

And this is meant to be the set up of the payoff of ten years work?

Ugh.




I sound mad about it but I'm mostly not? Like, this was boring, it was mean, and I had known that in advance.




If I had the stones and had concerns about finite resources I would not answer them this way. I would start with like ringworlds and other such stellar engineering meant to harness the maximum amount of energy, and then see if we ran out of space in the next few million years. Maybe use the time and soul stones to bring a bunch of people back and do that thing where you put people from different years down next to each other with enough space for them each to live on and end up with a timeline all living at once. That seems interesting. Answer the big purple idiot with a more efficient use of resources and demonstrate exactly how much more room we have.

It's so very boring to get power on that scale and use it for killing. You can do that without it. Why bother?

Blah.




I am not currently thinking I need a ticket for Endgame.

Kind of sad I spent money on this one.

YMMV, but I would commend the recent "In Our Time" episode on "The Evolution of Teeth" to the attention of anyone who would like to experienc some pleasant mild intellectually-stimulating body horror.

Features the term "skin-teeth". DID THE TEETH START IN THE SKIN AND MIGRATE INWARDS OR IN THE PHARYNX AND MOVE OUTWARDS. Also sharks. Lots of sharks.
