things i need to know: porn in swverse
is ‘jedi being seduced by incredibly hot partner’ a genre? are there porn spoofs of current events/famous people, like the equivalent of “nailin’ palin”? are there “nar shaddaa bibles” - little flip books of famous people/characters, crudely drawn and gettin’ it on?
and what is the look of horror on everyone’s face when they discover these things starring their alter egos
#luke’s eyes go very wide and then he fumblingly tosses it into the nearest furnace #leia just shrugs; she’s been dealing with it for years #han pretends to think it’s awful when leia rants about it but is secretly kinda pleased #lando goes on a letter writing compaign angrily telling everyone his penis isn’t that small #and meanwhile if you look deep into vader’s helmet #after handing him a little booklet of him screwing most of the moffs in the empire#you can see a blue screen of death pop up as he just Cannot Fathom What Is Happening
IDK but I’m happy to WRITE you ‘Jedi being seduced by incredibly hot partner’. Kes needs a new squeeze anyway. ;p
Wedge tries to get rid of his before Janson finds out, but Janson’s already distributed copies to Rogue Squadron and half of Starfighter Command.
Palpatine is the one who produces his. It’s part of some byzantine and probably counterproductive scheme that furthers some inane bullshit on Byss.
Admiral Ackbar is indignant. Mon Calamari do not have tentacles there.
When you go to a haunted house, it may seem like you’re being funny by trying to scare the actors or jump out at them when you go through a second time, but guess what? ITS NOT FUNNY.
You pay us to scare you. It is your choice to go, so don’t fucking go through if you’re going to ignore the rules and get too close to the actors as a ‘joke’.
These bruises happened because over the course of 4 hours, several people ignored the instructions that CLEARLY stated that they were to wait in the front room until told otherwise. Rather than listen, they ran into the next room and slammed into me- effectively throwing me into the wall. This didn’t only happen once. It happened ten times at LEAST.
Then we had this asshole who thought that once I ‘died’ for the haunt, he could pretend to kick me to see if I’d moved. I, being used to people abusing me- jumped back and slammed my head into the concrete wall.
YOU ARE NOT FUNNY BY BEING RUDE AT A HAUNTED HOUSE. WE ARE PAID ACTORS THAT YOU CHOOSE TO COME AND SEE PERFORM. YOU PAY US TO SCARE THE SHIT OUT OF YOU, SO DONT HIT US WHEN WE DO
I feel that this is relevant considering it is October and more Haunted Houses are opening up. I know it seems funny to scare the ‘monsters’ but all you do is hurt real people. So stop.
It’s not even October but I’m still spreading this
SIGNAL BOOOOOOOOSSSSSTTTTT!!!!!!! Now
I worked at a haunted house a few years in a row - and luckily I got a prime spot on a swing set above the crowd, but I saw a friend get her nose broken when a group shoved her into a wall, and I saw another girl being rushed through my area to the medical unit because someone got scared and punched her in the eye.
People don’t do it on purpose, but some people’s reaction to being scared is to get violent and shove and / or lash out at whatever’s scaring them. So if you’re one of those people, DON’T GO TO THE HAUNTED HOUSES, for fuck’s sake.
Also, if you get in there and realize part-way through you’re getting out of control, just shout to the actors that you’re legitimately scared and want to leave - they will drop everything and get someone to lead you out through a side escape hatch. They would much rather take you on a little detour then get face-punched.
Unfortunately there ARE people that deliberately go to haunted houses and stuff like that. I work at a theme park that does large scale haunted houses and open zones and ohh boy will you get hurt. Two years ago I did scaring work, and during that time I got kicked, punched, groped, pinched, grabbed, slapped, people tried to rip my mask or other parts of my costume off. I got cornered, shoved, knocked down, just. Ugh. People really have no qualms about hurting someone that can’t fight back.
Scarers are people. Keep that in mind next time you go to a haunted house and a friend thinks it’s funny to abuse the worker.
I was lucky to not be injured in the few I did, but I did have two experiences I want to share. The first involved me being dressed as a Weeping Angel (I was the resident statue scarer when needed) and a man decided to shove his glow stick through my mask into my eye to make me move and prove it was a costume, I held still because that was my job, but our cameras got him. Another time I had a man who was confused on if I was real or not (the costume was intense, I looked like an animatronic) and to test he put his entire hand on my face and started squeezing. I panicked and immediately burst into tears, probably soaking his mitt like hand that was as big as my tiny face. A lot of assholes go through haunts, don’t be one of those assholes. (As an aside: In my experience it is almost always men who do this, and a majority only do it to female workers. I don’t know why, but if you know a guy who acts like this explain to him why it is wrong. If he won’t listen, punch him for every time he hurts a haunt employee.)
It’s not only haunted houses, either. At one of the museums in the city where I work there’s a scene near the end of the tour where one of the actresses just sits and moves when the tour group isn’t expecting it… only one time (that I’ve heard about; it’s probably happened more) a school group going through went “haha that’s a real person” and legit started assaulting her. The chaperones did fuck all (it was a rich kid school) and one of the other actresses had to force them away from her.
Squirrel Girl needs a movie.
LISTEN UP YOU MAGGOTS
THIS CHARACTER IS BY FAR THE MOST POWERFUL, THE MOST INTERESTING, AND THE MOST WORTHY OF BEING YOUR ROLE MODEL EVER.
FIRST OFF SHE NEVER ONCE GOES GRIMDARK NOT ONCE AND WHEN SPEEDBALL WENT AND DID HIS STUPID CLIVE BARKER POINTS POINTED INWARD ARMOR THING SHE CALLED HIM OUT ON IT AND OUTRIGHT DECLARED SUCH A THING WAS CHILDISH AND MADE HIM INEFFECTIVE AS A HERO BECAUSE A HERO HAS TO BE APPROACHABLE.
ALSO LETS TALK ABOUT HER SUPERPOWER. YOU TAKE ONE LOOK AT HER AND THINK SHE’S JUST A LOSER RIGHT? WRONG. SQUIRREL GIRL HAS THE MUTANT POWER TO NOT ONLY HAVE SQUIRREL TRAITS BUT CAN ALSO COMMAND THE ABSOLUTE LOYALTY OF SQUIRRELS. HOW MANY SQUIRRELS? TRY EVERY SQUIRREL EVERY WHERE. FLYING SQUIRRELS, TREE SQUIRRELS, I BET YOU SOMEHOW SHE CAN EVEN COMMAND THE LOYALTY OF SOME SHITASTICALLY RARE POISON SQUIRRELS.
BECAUSE OF THIS POWER SHES MANAGED TO TAKE ON FOES THAT WOULD NORMALLY JUST INCINERATE HER ON THE SPOT. SHE TOOK ON DOCTOR VICTOR VON DOOM FOR PETE’S PATOOTS NOT A DOOM BOT THE ACTUAL DOCTOR DOOM AN ACTUAL SORTA ALIEN GOD CALLED THE WATCHER HAD TO ACTUALLY FACT CHECK THAT SHIT BECAUSE EVEN HE DIDNT BELIEVE IT AND THAT FUCKER NEVER INTERVENES FOR SHIT BUT HE HAD TO IN THIS CASE BECAUSE THE WORLD JUST COULDN’T BELIEVE SQUIRREL GIRL DEFEATED THE GENUINE DOCTOR DOOM HE WAS LIKE “OH HELL YEAH I HAVE TO COME DOWN AND FACT CHECK THIS SHIT THE UNIVERSE NEEDS THIS WHAT IM SURE GALACTUS CAN WAIT.”
ALSO HOLD ONTO YOUR PANTALOONS BEACUSE THIS LADY ACTUALLY TOOK ON GALACTUS AND WON.
GALACTUS YES THAT GALACTUS THE GIANT DUDE THAT EATS PLANETS SHE TOOK ON A SPACE GOD WITH NOTHIN GBUT MOTHERFUCKING SQUIRRELS.
SHE NEEDS A SERIES. A MOVIE, A FANBASE SHES JUST THAT AWESOME.
ALSO SHE’S PART OF A LOSER HERO TEAM CALLED THE GREAT LAKES AVENGERS AND ITS STAFFED BY A DUDE WHO CAN COME BACK TO LIFE WHEN HE DIES LIKE KENNY FROM SOUTH PARK
IM DONE HERE JUST USE WIKIPEDIA ALREADY DONT TAKE MY WORD FOR IT
No, seriously, it has become something of a running gag that Squirrel Girl can defeat any villain.
She is like “Instant Fun, just add Squirrel Girl”.
I strongly recommend reading her adventures, they are just super-great. ^__^
(Minor correction, it is actually the Great Lakes Champions, not Avengers.)
(She also has a healing factor and enhanced strength among some other squirrel-themed powers.)
Marvel set up a system of gauging superheroes powers and based it largely on which characters have defeated and lost to other characters to determine what those power levels are. Due to Squirrel Girl having defeated so many strong villains, they were forced to put every single power category at 7 out of 7.
She is the only Marvel character in history to achieve this.
The red are what fans think her power ratings should be.
Blue is canon ratings.

One more minor correction: Her team has been, various, the Great Lakes Champions, Avengers, Initiative, and X-Men. They had a hard time with their branding (in-universe).

My name is Marco. Stop me if you’ve heard this one.Sneaking in under the wire for Thememorphs! Could go in the same continuity of some of my other works, not really sure. This has been my crackship of choice for a while now, though.
This is actually pissing me off. It has begun to ruin halloween for me knowing people don’t spell check. Things are massed produced in factories and sent out for sale to the public spelt spoopy, doo, and creppy. Like what the actual fuck. My computer even automatically changes spoopy to spooky. I mean, come on. The best holiday season and businesses don’t even care enough about it to spell check the items they’re gonna sell. Fuck this shit.
come on buddy wheres your smngfiehp cheer
This is what my husband and I purchased at the grocery store the other day.
We don’t have kids.
We are adults. We pay bills.
And drink water from a whale.
