who even came up with the word motherfucker in the first place?
No sugardaddies. No sugar mamas. No sugarbabies. Full socialism in romantic relationships. There are only sugarcomrades.

I’m waiting for Skyrim to download, so let me tell you a story about my mum.
When I was … eight? maybe? my dad came home with a gaming console. Don’t ask me what it was, this was the 80s, all I know is it was brown (probably) and had exactly two games, one of which was not in fact a game but BASIC (I think) and I would write little choose-your-own-adventure text games on it but could not save them. It was art, ephemeral as the clouds, and pretty much always turned out to be some kind of elaborate brick joke.
The ‘other’ game was Space Invaders. I played it obsessively. There were like nine variations (easy, fast, survival, no shelters etc) and I was determined to beat all of them. I would put my initials into the high score board with this kind of demonic glee. It was awesome.
And then one morning I woke up to find that my mother had stayed up all night to max out the score on every fucking level. Like, it was 999999 just … there where my score should be. And she said, “You’ll never beat that. I will always be the winner.”
Now I look back and find this pretty fucking hilarious, but at the time I was horrified.
Anyway, so I told this story to my dad recently, wondering if he could remember any of it and he pointed out that it wasn’t just me she’d beaten forever, it was him too. And she merrily rubbed it in his face.
The best part is he said she was exactly as fucking gleeful putting her name on the high score board as I was. Just, like twenty-five years older.
THIS IS FUCKING GLORIOUS
I like to think that maybe Bucky rescues an American Pit Bull and they rehabilitate each other!
blanket apology to all the female celebrities i hated as a teenager because i was up to my eyeballs in internalized misogyny
This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy.
*squint* you mean the pretty cosplayers one or did i accidentally give you more ideas?
Nope, that’s the one. I’ve been terrible about writing lately — I’m gonna go through tomorrow and clean up my inbox and do all the prompts, or try to.
I did not forget about your prompt either.
I am slowly but surely putting it together. Thank you for your patience, bb. <3
