I’m 24f, my bf and I have been dating a little over two years. I’m not pregnant but we got on the subject of future children since we want to eventually marry and start a family together.
He wants his first boy to have a family name (understandable) and for all the kids to take his last name since he’s an only child and he wants to “continue the family legacy”. Yes, he said that almost verbatim. And yeah, I laughed a bit cause it’s a weird thing to say tbh.
For the record, I already know I’m either gonna hyphenate my name or not change it at all when we marry. (No shame to women who change their last name, it’s everyone’s own choice.) I’d like our kids to hyphenate too. My bf didn’t realize my policy extended to any kids we might have. He’s really adamant about continuing on his last name for some reason. It’s an uncommon name, but he’s not royalty or anything.
After going in circles about “legacy” and “bloodlines” and “the family name” I eventually told him it’s 2020 and we don’t... keep reading on reddit ➡
For instance, I can see the exclusion of Damphair and Victarion in Season 2 being a point of serious controversy.
”I knew the first season was too good to be true.”
What are the most ridiculous moments from the show that absolutely made no sense / made you laugh at how stupid and illogical they are? I'll start:
I will forever laugh when Sansa says "There's a wall between us and the army of the dead, but nothing between us and Cersei."
This is a long review, I hope it is worth your time.
I usually am not the one who writes reviews for movies and TV shows, however, as a fan of the show and after a dialogue with a group of friends, I decided to write this review more than a year after GOT ended:
There has been a lot of complaints about inconsistencies in the pacing of the events, decisions made by characters which were not in coordination with their previous behavior, illogical political events and stupid battle designs. I acknowledge all of that, but the most important characteristic of a good story as Tyrion puts it is that it inspires people. We identify with characters that we see on the screen, we feel familiar in the position of their struggles. It doesn't matter if it is a fantasy setting or a real contemporary one. We try to see ourselves in characters that we love (or despise). It is also true that almost all of us face real struggles in our relationships, careers, family, mental and physical health and man... keep reading on reddit ➡
Edit 3: 7:15, back in the lab again
Edit 2: Alright, 5:50 CT. Gonna eat dinner. Will respond more tonight.
Edit: Alright, here I go, answering questions.
Ask about Kanye, podcasting, YouTubing, social media, Forbes writing, novel writing, lyric writing—any writing, really—movies, baseball, anime, life, etc.
A bit of background, if you’re interested.
Grew up in Ohio. Small town. Graduated college and moved to Sydney, Australia for a year. Came back home and started a movie analysis website where I focused on explaining movies rather than saying if they were good or bad.
Leveraged that into industry credentials to the Toronto International Film Festival. Leveraged that into press accreditation to Sundance and Slamdance. Spent most of 2012-2016 focused on indie films, the festival scene, looking to get into consulting. Even consulted on the movie Infinity Baby. Ron Swanson himself complimented my feedback lol.
Started the Kanye podcast in July 2015, as an ex... keep reading on reddit ➡
My last post I showed Solo Flawless Pit, but this is actually easier than that.
You must complete the first encounter normally. After that, activate ghost mode. Then you can pass every single encounter without being attacked. So after the first encounter, its done.
This requires you to do 2 previously covered cheeses to bypass mechanics. The vorgeth skip, since you can't start a dps phase during that encounter. And the infinite damage phase for dul incaru, since you can't cleanse yourself.
If you are a warlock, you would need to 1 phase dul incaru, or deactivate ghost mode to finish the encounter so you don't die from the debuff. Titans and hunters don't have that problem if you use the block.
So Titans = EASY / Hunters = Medium / Warlocks = Hard
But all classes can do this. More info on everything mentioned can be found in the video and in that videos description.
As the title implies, we're gonna have ourselves a Dark Lord free-for-all here. Who would die first, who would be the last man standing? All feats are allowed (e.g. we're going by Voldemort in both the books and movies). (Note, for all rounds: I'm going to say that Fire Lord Ozai is under the influence of Sozin's Comet since that's the only time we see him fight.)
Round 1: They duke it out using all their weapons, powers and invulnerabilities presented to them.
Round 2: Same as round 1, only we remove the invulnerabilities they possess. So, in other words, Voldemort's Horcruxes are gone, you don't need to toss the One Ring into Mt. Doom, you don't need dragonglass to kill the Night King and Ganondorf's and the White Witch's immortality is removed. They're all perfectly mortal. Would that actually change anything?
Round 3: Same as round 1, only now they have the full might of their respective armies backing them up. (Once again, Ozai's Fire Nation is under the influence of Sozin's Co... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I finished reading the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas some time ago and I still cannot stop thinking about it. I would like a recommendation on series or stand alones that are fantasy fictions, having something to do with royals, have plenty of adventure etc. Also I've already read the other series by Sarah J Maas. Thanks :)
Context: Valerian is a shield-captain fond of books and philosophy; as a part of the Custodes' many duties, one is interpreting the Emperor's will. Thus, they comb through countless tomes and books and records of the Emperor's remembrancers and the like. He has just been offered the opportunity to become one of the Emperor's three-hundred Companions.
Whatever it might once have been, the Throne is no longer a single object, nor is it housed in a single room. Its mechanisms spread out like roots throughout the entire Inner Palace, worming down into the forgotten crypts and climbing up into the highest peaks. Its power coils are the size of cities, its foundations the remade mountains themselves. The adepts of the Mechanicus who toil without rest to maintain its workings have added so many accretions over its ten millennia of life that the planet around it has been utterly changed – bored away, ground down and raised up again.
And yet, the unschooled men and w... keep reading on reddit ➡
If your favourite show was snubbed, it's in good company.
The Wire never won a single Emmy. Veronica Mars never even received a nomination. Buffy only won a single Emmy for make-up. Hannibal was only nominated once for special effects. It goes on and on.
But that season eight of Game of Thrones, though? Emmy's out the ass.
I know the Horus Heresy has had its ups and downs but the first 3 books of SoT seemed to struggle terribly with pacing and quality of writing. Maybe it's just a personal bias in favour of Abnett's style but i'll be damned if this isn't a massive step in the right direction. How do you think Saturnine compares to the previous 3?
Also thine own ears didn't deceive me did they? The Ollanius Pius legend has been unshitted.
This is mostly concerning the Chronicler title, which is locked behind a 231 day time gate and is not possible to obtain before the DLC. I have a feeling that they are going to sunset the title this fall because a few of the lore entries are on soon to be vaulted planets. IF the title is going to be removed this fall, I'd really like to know so I don't waste my time. Either make it obtainable after the expansion launches, or give us weekly drops so people that have already started collecting the pages can actually finish the title.
Edit: According to my calculations, the last week that we were able start and complete the Truth to Power lore book legitimately before the fall expansion was the curse week of February 11th. If you started legitimately collecting the all the TTP lore pages any curse week AFTER the week of February 11th, you won't be getting the title, if it gets removed this fall.
I know it not considered a “horror” but the creepy spirit of the forest, camera shots, slow movements of the actors and the ending combined definitely leaves you slightly disturbed and the overall theme of man being his own worst enemy has rarely been portrayed quite this well imo.
What are your thoughts?
Just saw that on her IG story. Really cool they sent that to her.
Edit: yes I know DnD bad haha very funny, but can there please be other things being mentioned here? I know season 8 was bad but damn u guys are salty.
So whenever I can't think of a name for an NPC on the fly, I just think back to a random character in ASOIAF and just grab that name instead, so why not make a table out of it? FYI any value below 50 in the first table is a male name, above 50 is a female name, so you have about an even split.
