  1. “Any god that demands worship is by definition a tyrant”

    going through my 1st year college stuff and its cringy

      The jewish people believe in debate. A LOT. To the point where there's an old joke that if god himself joined in a debate between priests, that'd only make the vote two to six.

      They emphasize things like moses whittling the commandments down to ten (which is also in muslim tradition) and Abraham bargaining to find ten honest men (although some argue that's so that he can see for himself how futile it is). And in a famous story (have to track it doen, sorry), the rabbis actually beat god in a talbot debate and he celebrates his 'childrens' accomplishment.

       To them, the relationship with god is a pact, one where he has to fullfill part himself. Theyve succesfully argued terms of worship a number of times, within reason because god needs to get something too. And yes, he asks for worship, but it's closer to a parent wanting to be in your life, if im understanding it righr. Does that make sense?

      jewish lore on this one is actually quite fascinating.

  5. I didn't used to have a favorite Disney villain. But the other night, I watched the Princess and the Frog, and now it's Dr Facilier -- the Shadow Man. Even his death is awesome.

      as a disney trivia guy i’d like to point out some of the subtleties you may or may not have enjoyed. one, his costume is, naturally, evoking baron sameidei (which is an actual ritual element to evoke a connection with the loa in question) and his name comes from the french “facile” or easy. he is a man who makes things easy.

      also, he honestly tells everybody exactly what they’ll get from him. the butler? is told that he’d be miserable married, but forced to marry anyway, and the prince is told he’ll be given all the green he needs to hop from place to place. buuuut….

      also, did you notice this?

    From here on out, I choose to identify as a porg...

    ...because I, too, am small, awkward, chunky, incredibly useless, frequently in the way, and undeniably adorable, and I, too, make obnoxious sounds to communicate with others of my species.

  7. I’m writing a fanfic in which a character writes fanfic of a fanfic. Is there an upper limit to how meta something can be?

      Have a friend write a review that's actually a fanfic of a character writing a review. For bonus points it's one of the characters your character was writing about

  8. I adore a protagonist who is clueless about the fact they have an expansive and expanding harem.

      Oooh, this one is a REAL treat. Bonus points for thinking its someone else's harem and that THEY'RE the oblivious one

  9. Ten questions I'd ask various superheroes if they were real:

    1. Squirrel Girl: What are you going to call yourself when you're forty?
    2. Black Panther and Aquaman: Shouldn't you guys be, like, at home settling trade disputes instead of running around in tight pants?
    3. Martian Manhunter: Suspenders with shorts? Is that a Martian thing?
    4. America Chavez: If you just gently poked some cookie dough with your finger, would it make star shapes?
    5. Iron Man: What do you do if you have an itch?
    6. Beast Boy: So, when you turn into an animal, is it always a boy animal?
    7. Wolverine: If you and Vandal Savage got in a fight, which of you do you think would get bored and go home first?
    8. The Flash: Do women actually like the speed thing? Because, you know...
    9. The Thing: Do you think the right moisturizer would help?
    10. Violet Parr: Have you ever searched your own name on a site called Rule34?

    1. Strange_idea

      Strange_idea

      Well, squirrel girls both knows she's never going to and is ditzy enough to be totally caught off guard if she does. 

       

      They do both, but aqua man is an easily bored conqueror king first and a politician second, while t'challa's generally solving a trade dispute by hunting the most dangerous game. 

       

      With manhunter it's an "I'm every bit as strong as Superman and know EXACTLY what you just thought. What are you going to do?" thing. And probably easy to shape-shift into. 

       

      You KNOW Tony added some kind of massage device and it went wrong.

       

      This is actually Canon, but beast boy can turn into other humans (but isn't allowed to by writers) and even species like krytponians. Since several species are female only,  that would mean he can change genders. And if not he can borrow it from an animal.

      There's a few animes like that. One also has a grandiose swordswoman adorably scared of lightning that the protagonist always thought was a man.

  12. Who says nothing good ever happens to me? I’ve been invited to take part in an ancient local midwinter ritual to ensure the sun returns next year! The only downside is nobody wants to make plans for anything past the ritual date now, and apparantly I’ll have to lie on some cold stone for a bit.

  15. After all these years, I'm finally ready to confess: I killed the radio star and framed Video for it. Sadly, Video died in prison in 1998, but I hope this confirmation of his innocence brings some comfort to his two children, MP3 and Streaming.

      carrots were around before potatoes. so it makes sense. also, they were black, white and purple then. long story

      they also had the can before the can opener

       

      related historical oddity, the colour orange is named for the fruit. not the other way around.

      Congratulations on overcoming writers block!

  18. I was a dead star shone red into the infinite dark I bled

    A dying city my inhabitants long dead

    maintenance kept me just shy of that envied flat-line

    My roots dug deep

    your branches mixed with mine and my roots together entwine with thee and thine

    Until I could no longer tell were you me?

    Or was I mine?

    Did I bleed out? Or did you bleed in?

    A death that lasted yet was not mine

    But was thee and thine

    Here at the end

    Time’s Den

    To see with Dead and Dying sight

    A strange mix of you and me

    and through thine blooded light

    A stranger’s might.

    Impossibly bright.

    Beginning.

      Dying star, burn still bright

      Cling to Life with all your might

      The ampitheatre's long abanroned

      The city's gone and left you stranded

      Your empty audience lies dreaming strange

      You stand, unheeded on it's stage

      But somewhere else your light has travelled

      The darkness that it's touched unravelled

      Some will will drink your crimson light

      Some won't know the subtle light

      But out there, somewhere, your light will find

      Another soul to touch and guide

      Even unseen, your beauty shines

      And will be treasured, by all who find. 

      So stand tall and proud, and enjoy the show.

      Your life has reach you'll never know.

      Wait, there's a dischord?  I've been getting by on forum posts and pm's. Huh.... Well, I'm pretty new too though.  Thanks! Given my problems with computers at times I'll need to fix some things before I join.  Don't want to make a half dozen rapid accounts under the same name again.

  24. Dreams are weird. This thing could rupture universes by will alone and cause stars to supernova by looking at them.

    Its galaxies were breathtaking works of art. Somehow it knew I pitied it and that pity was an insult. For all its power it just didn’t have that spark required for life. Like having all the ingredients for a recipe but still somehow missing a vital component. Sorta like wanting to make a pizza but not having an oven.

    It said life was pointless but I’ve never known the answer so inherently.

    I said the point of life was to live. That it had no right to insult even a single living cell. Since they just by existing were doing what they were meant to.

    Its worlds were beautiful. In a sad sorta away for the one thing they all had in common was that they were devoid of life and always would be. It is the height of tragedy that all that beauty and breathtaking views were for it and it alone. And I couldn’t help but pity it.
