SVU by frey_at_last

Periodic SVU bitch

What the hell is up with the SVU writers lately? It's like they're going, "Okay, in the episode we need to have someone make a racially insensitive comment or ethnic generalization... can't have Stabler do it, he's the golden boy... can't have Benson do it, she's the golden girl... can't have Fin do it, he's black... I KNOW!! Let's have Munch say it!!"

Ummmm... NO. Munch was a hippie, a conscientious objector, and most importantly, a member of the well-integrated Baltimore Homicide squad who quite obviously thought the world of most of his coworkers, including those of different races. Munch has got plenty of flaws (Alyssa Dyer's roommate!), but dude, get them right. Lame-ass bigoted comments just aren't in character for him.

Then again, the fucknuts writing SVU think he grew up in New York City... (all together now) NEW YORK CITY?! Get a rope!!

Behold, a Fables icon!!

This is Bigby Wolf from my current favorite comic, Fables by Bill Willingham. (Gotham Central by Brubaker and Rucka is a close second, and issues of both come out today, so I'm happy as a clam.) I have him thanks to weaktwos, who shares my deep love for Bigby (I mean, this is the character that finally replaced Cassidy from Preacher as my comics boyfriend!)

And now, I have a cool Fables story...

A few months back, I was checking my email at the end of the weekend when I saw an address I didn't recognize. I clicked on the message, and there it was:

"Thanks for saying such nice things about Fables.

Bill Willingham"

Apparently he somehow came across the entries where I raved about Fables, and said thank you!! I invite you all to imagine the heights of my squeeing fangirliness (we're talking bouncing off the walls here).

Because becala asked for more gaming posts...

Some stupid things Felicity has done:

  • Within moments of meeting Rage the berserker halfling, she dubbed him "the hobbit from hell." (If anyone asks what a hobbit is, she'll say it's a term she picked up in her travels.)
  • While Rage was asleep in the swamp, she wrote "I fuck dwarves" on his forehead. (This is actually true: In the last town, Rage had gone to a brothel and spent an evening with a dwarf prostitute. This led to some interesting hijinks when he got robbed and basically had to be dragged out of town by his comrades for his own safety.)
  • The aforementioned incident where, in a swamp inhabited by a dangerous dragon, Felicity hollered "HYMO!! I'm BORED!! Cast a spell on me!!" This could have led to disaster when a disembodied voice offered to make things more interesting, but luckily Felicity wasn't so stupid as to take the voice up on it.
  • While babysitting Kendell the halfling monk, who had passed out after her first-ever alcoholic beverage, Felicity wrote "cheap date" on her forehead. This got her dangled in the air upside-down by a very pissed halfling. Felicity's response on being set down safely on earth? "That was fun! Do it again!"
  • After returning from an adventure, Felicity decided to celebrate being alive with two of her favorite pasttimes, drinking and gambling. The problem? She had the flu. Which of course didn't stop her.
  • After being healed from her flu, Felicity wanted to be helpful, so she offered to keep Kendell company while she babysat the evil artifact that gave Felicity the flu in the first place. Felicity thought this would be a great bonding experience, complete with singing and dancing, "and in the morning, I'm making waffles!" Kendell was probably relieved when after less than an hour, Felicity got the flu again and had to go back to town.
  • While out drinking in a dwarven tavern, Felicity got the bright idea that she would teach the dwarves some songs. She ended up on the bar trying to teach the dwarves the dance that the party had to do in the swamp to appease the dragon. Apparently mentioning dragons was a faux pas, or at least the rest of the party looked shocked...

Have I mentioned how much fun it is to play a character with a Wisdom of 7? Plus, she has the Impulsive disadvantage, so I always get to do the first stupid thing that comes into my head!

More gaming stuff...

For the gamers out there, I just finished writing the character history of Martina, my Arcana Unearthed Unfettered and my favorite character (the one in this icon, in fact). I'll be adding Martina's goals and motivations to this eventually.
