When you notice you have a private message from Aspera, your first thought is: oh good. Because you weren’t entirely sure he knew how to even use that feature, techno-illiterate as he is. You still bring up a virus-defense app before clicking the link, because who knows… what…
This can’t be what you think it is.
Oh god. It is exactly what you think it is.
His smug drawl gets your blood pumping even before he starts undressing. By the end of it your legs are crossed tight, your teeth are grinding, and your claws are digging into the edge of your desk.
You are not going to take off your uniform pants before Galley can be involved in the process. You are not going to let Aspera ruin another of your favorite outfits. Therefore you must exercise self-control. Absolute… control… and perfect… calm. Deep breaths. Think unsexy thoughts.
Okay, good. You’re fine. You’re just not going to watch it again until some later, more clement circumstances, at which time you will watch it until you’re dehydrated and shaky, because good god your rival has the most amazing abs —
Unsexy thoughts, unsexy thoughts.
You’re not entirely calm when you fire off a reply, but at least you’ve managed to uncross your legs without anything becoming prehensile.
Aspera: Unblock yourself, you luddite, I want a word with you. - Bel
flintlockgalivant [FG] has unblocked himself!
- flintlockGallivant [FG] is trolling crossfireHurricane [CH] -
FG: Hello there, my Good Fellow!
FG: What seems to be the Trouble today?
CH: * I honestly wonder.
CH: * Are you trying to make me jealous, or are you that desperate for attention?
FG: It depends entirely on which would work!
CH: * Not anymore, it doesn’t. You’ve accomplished both whether you wanted to or not.
CH: * If I didn’t already have plans with my matesprit I’d come kick you out a window. You flagrant *skank*.
FG: I am not a Skank, sir, I am your Boyfriend, a fact that you seem to have balley well forgotten in and among all your interminable Matesprit Canoodling!
FG: Perhaps I will get my Own Matesprit!
FG: And he will be more handsome than you!!
CH: * Good luck with that, I’m gorgeous and you know it. Anyway, you can be a skank *and* my boyfriend, a fact you have now proven to the scientific community’s sticky satisfaction by posting a video for me on a public porn site!
FG: You are visually unobjectionable but more than that I will not Admit To. Also, you smell.
FG: Wait a mo’.
FG: Was it a Scientific Community? I didn’t mean to upload to one of those, that would have been Highly inappropriate. Is that why you’ve gotten your Nether Garments in such a twist?
FG: You would care more about random Science Chums than the State of YOUR OWN RIVAL’S SADLY NEGLECTED FACILITIES!!
FG: MORE SHOUTPOLES !!!!!!!!!!!
CH: * I
CH: * you
CH: * Where do I begin.
CH: * Thing one: forget the science. That was just a quip. Nevermind that part.
CH: * Thing two: that is a *public porn site*. Absolutely anyone could view that video. Scientists or not.
CH: * Thing three: I am not pleased with the prospect of the entire freaking Empire eavesdropping on our sexytimes!
CH: * I’m sorry I left you hanging so long, there were… events. I’ve scouted locations for the rock climbing date if you’re still
CH: * MY POINT IS are you aware that a million losers are even now spanking it to your gorgeous abs and vacant stare? Is that all right with you??
FG: They are?
FG: I say, that’s flattering.
CH: * AAAAAARGH
FG: I am deducing you are dissatisfied with this Situation, Kadros, and yet I’ll be blown if I can so much as hazard a guess as to why, your elucidated points notwithstanding. No one is seeing OUR ‘sexytimes’, as I was having an entirely solo Erotic Happening all by myself, in my own hive, alone.
FG: All alone.
FG: Completely in isolation.
CH: * STOP PUTTING NOSES ON YOUR SMILEYS, YOU IMBECILE.
FG: That was a Frown.
CH: * IT’S CALLED A SMILEY WHETHER
CH: * God, never mind that.
CH: * You’re infuriating.
CH: * Seadweller porn is internet gold. You’re going to be a meme. I can’t even
CH: * Your junk touching times are for your quadrants, you slattern. Sharing them with the whole galaxy is just *tacky*.
FG: You poncy little Fussbeast. I am, as you pointed out, A Seadweller. Tacky is something that happens to the lesser classes.
FG: Like, perhaps, nosey blueblood Rulemongerers who won’t have a look at their Partner’s mating tackle but sure are Bloody Keen to tell them what they can and can’t do with it!
FG: that’s a Nosely.
FG: - - - - Portrait of the young Master as a Nosely Nosing Nosebeast.
CH: * Of course I goddamn looked at it!
CH: * Only once, though, because hell if I’ll let you ruin another outfit.
CH: * There is no such thing as a nosely! And stop capitalizing things that don’t need to be capitalized!
CH: * I am going to march over there and swat you one the minute my schedule clears up, you brat.
CH: * <3<
FG: That had better be a Promise, Kadros! I am sick to my eyeteeth of your blasted Schedule.
FG: < - 3 - <
CH: * DON’T PUT NOSES IN YOUR SPADE DAFLKJGHDFLGKJHDSFG
FG: Those are Eyes this time. See, it’s a little Kissing face!
CH: * I’M GOING TO KILL YOU

remeber when EVERYONE had their DESCRIPTIONS typed in the style of HOMESTUCK INTROS
You don’t remember that at all and frankly you find the notion a bit absurd. You are in fact quite sure that nobody, least of all yourself, would ever have indulged in such a ridiculous and unnecessary affectation.
Yes, you are absolutely and positively one hundred percent convinced beyond any doubt that this probably never happened.
You quickly put the notion out of mind, and resolve to never think of it again.
You stuff a large chunk of frankenwich down your throat without swallowing. It gets stuck, so you shove it down with psionics. After a moment, you aren’t choking to death anymore.
"Make stuff?" You envision rows and rows of shitty carved soap lusii. Yeah, right. "X don’t make stuff, X lxft xt up by the kiloton and hurl xt screaming through atmo to break up over the ocean. Doubt X’d really want to show that skxll to anyone who could pay for xt.”
You sit back and try to look like you weren’t about to jump up and heimlich the hell out of him. “Uh. What? Oh, naw, bro, I mean do you wanna learn to make stuff. We got a buncha salable hobbies in this hive, right? I actually make a decent chunk of cash off my knitting. I’ll totes teach you. Pancho’s woodworking stuff sells pretty good too. And folks’d prolly pay money for Bel’s blank books iffen he ever felt like selling ‘em, but I dunno, I never saw one of ‘em. He said he made you one and you din’t like it, so mebbe he sucks at it.”
You remember the book perfectly well, because it was the first time Bel gave you something, and you’d been so overcome you had to go sequester yourself in your helmsblock to avoid a scene. You think about it, wrapped in the scarf Bel gave you and tucked away in your most encrypted captchalogue slot, and your face warms up all over again.
"Ehhh," you say, trying to sound careless. "X’m sure xt’s stxll around somewhere. No way X could do fxddly shxt lxke that, though."
"How come not? Hands too fucked up? You could use your psi to help. I use mine for knitting sometimes, it’s faster’n a cable needle."
i am exactly good enough at knitting to feel a burst of passionate, furious jealousy at the thought of ditching the cable needle in favor of convenient psionics
this is the best reblog of an rp thread ever i mean I KNOW RIGHT I’M SO JEALOUS OF JETHRO FOR THIS
my life is now an endless round of sleep deprivation, cat pee, and putting cats in gay baby jail.
What is gay baby jail? haha
man idek where the meme came from, it’s just pics of pets being put in time out with a sign that says ‘gay baby jail’
so when we put kitties in time out in the room luka used to rent from us obvs that room is gay baby jail
lately molly has been bullying devi like it’s her job, and devi has been getting really avant-garde with the whole concept of where pee is supposed to go, so there has been a whole lot of time outs ;_;
my life is now an endless round of sleep deprivation, cat pee, and putting cats in gay baby jail.
The funny thing is, the room we’ve been using for that is Luka’s old room. And when we started referring to it as “gay baby jail”, Jesse observed that the room would be called that forever. Then we realized it was Luka’s old room, and it should have been called that all along.
why should you never trust an adult who won't apologize to a child?
I answered this in a followup somewhere in that giant reblog chain, but basically: In general, people occasionally do things for which they ought to apologize. There’s no obvious reason to refuse to apologize to a child except a belief that there is no obligation to apologize to people unless they’re at least comparably powerful to you, and someone who treats less-powerful people badly is probably an asshole.
The ARC of Maryland has set up a form to help you talk to your congresspeople about why the Combating Autism Act (CAA) must be reformed. It can help you identify your congressperson, how to contact them, and give you some ideas of what to say to them. You can use it from any part of the United States. Together, let’s tell them to reform the CAA and #StopCombatingMe!
Last week, we examined multiple perspectives about why Autism Speaks is problematic and hurtful for autistic people. With that in mind this week, let us take a look at some great organizations that do positive work for the autistic community and are worthy of support!
The criteria in which we judged an autism-related organization are as follows:
Meaningfully includes people on the autism spectrum in top levels of leadership.
Affirms the lives of autistic people.
Strives towards full inclusion of autistic people in the community.
The Autistic Self Advocacy Network seeks to advance the principles of the disability rights movement with regard to autism. Drawing on the principles of the cross-disability community, ASAN seeks to organize the community of Autistic adults and youth to have our voices heard in the national conversation about us. ASAN believes that the goal of autism advocacy should be a world in which Autistic people enjoy the same access, rights, and opportunities as all other citizens. We hope to empower Autistic people across the world to take control of our own lives and the future of our common community. Nothing About Us, Without Us!
I accidentally got too wrapped up in this character’s existential breakdown and when it ended it was more than just a punchline.. those fears of when it would end.. the fact that it happened on the characters request, i felt like it deserved at least a little happiness for all it’s trouble:P
