The cast are so super supportive about slash/fandom creativity, which I love.

Also, to the author known as Those Folks: highest of fives on being the people who took the risk and made such good fic. (If you want me to take down the links to your work, though, let me know.) There needs to be more C Team fic in the world, and I hope I can get around to writing some of it, too.

so you want to watch nerds play d&d… (1)

From long series, to short series, to one-offs, with both new and old players…there’s toooooons of tabletop roleplaying game content to choose from on Youtube.

Today, I want to talk to you about the recent game I’ve been watching/listening to:

Acquisitions Incorporated: The “C” Team

This tabletop Dungeons & Dragons game is a spin-off of Acq Inc- but if you know nothing about that, this is totally the cool place to start. Basically, Acq Inc is/was a D&D podcast started by a group of gamers/artists/writers/D&D players, and the premise was that a group of adventurers started a company to collect loot. The idea of The “C” Team is that a brand new group of adventurers has been hired by this company, for a “Secret Purpose” that has not yet been revealed. You can check out more lore info at acq-inc.com.

The episodes are currently posted on PennyArcade’s Youtube channel, and they run about 2.5 to 3 hours long. (As of posting this, there are 6 episodes. Episodes are livestreamed every Thursday and posted Friday/Saturday).

If you like PUNS and TEAMWORK, BOY DO I RECOMMEND.
For a highlights reel of Great Moments, check out these badass animations by Zeebashew!

The main cast of characters are:
Walnut Dankgrass (the k is silent), a half elf druid with animal issues
K’thriss Drow’b, a drow warlock who may ormay not be in debt with an Eldritch horror
Donaar Blitzen, a narcissistic dragonborn cleric
AND
MY FAVE
Rosie Beestinger, a frickin little old lady badass halfling monk
she is THE BEES KNEES. I love her. she’s great.
And really, all the characters are A+, and Jerry Holkins makes a good DM, too.

WATCH THE SHOW AND COME TALK TO ME. Let’s create some beautiful headcanons together <3.

Kiesha’ra Series Reference

The Kiesha’ra Series, young-adult fantasy books by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, was something I read in middle school. Everyone’s a shapeshifter, and the shapeshifters are divided into familial clans. The snakes are at war with some of the birds, but then there’s an arranged marriage made to make peace. That’s the setup of the first book, and each book thereafter sort of deals with the relationships and political problems in their combined society.

The books were short (or at least, I read them very quickly back then) and had interesting worldbuilding. It had some het romance but it didn’t feel overstated. Or maybe I just had a bigger tolerance for it back then, I dunno. I’ve reread some of it now, and it definitely has it’s pros and cons. And it’s something I wanted to see more enriched worldbuilding with.

Since deciding to create an AU of the series for the Yogs/Hats fandom for my own personal enjoyment/interest, I’ve done some research- which has proved pretty much futile on the internet. Atwater-Rhodes and her community used to have a forum and wiki set up that included troves of information from the books and the author herself. These websites have been defunct since 2015 (and inaccessible on the Wayback Machine), and have never been restored. The only sources I’ve been able to find are a couple of wiki pages and the books themselves.

So, to fill in the gaps for my own understanding/worldbuilding/fandom-use, I’ve compiled an informal, unofficial Google docs reference. This includes the shapeshifter types, their fashion and personalities, their societies and other cultural information created by/written into the world by Atwater-Rhodes. It is intended only as an informal reference for fandom-aligned use.

It is possible that Atwater-Rhodes has detailed more into the world in the books she’s published since Wyvernhail in 2007, and there could be gaps in understanding between my archiving and what was originally on her wiki.
Keeping that in mind, my reference extends majoritively to part of the Kiesha’ra series- Hawksong, Snakecharm, and Falcondance- but loosely takes the events of the entire series (including Wolfcry and Wyvernhail) into account. So. Spoilers, you know?

February Fic Recs

On February 10th, 11th, and 12th, you’re invited to rec your favourite fics, from the all time faves to the WIPs you’re currently enjoying.

I went through my bookmarks on ao3 from 2016 and picked out some fics.
Most of these aren’t Yogs/Hats, because I wanted to showcase more outside of that fandom.  There are lots and lots that I’m certain I’ve forgotten. If you’ve written in the same fandom I do- thank you for sharing your work. I hope to see more in the coming year, but if not, you and your work are still appreciated all the same. So, thanks!

Also, let it be known the only fandom I consider myself to be “in” is Yogs/Hats, because that’s what I write in and mostly interact in.
I do, however, read anything that interests me in pretty much any other fandom, whether I’ve seen content from it or not. Find something you thing I’d like? Feel free to rec me it down below, or on Discord or something.

Fics are sorted alphabetically by title. Summaries are italicized, and my comments are in parentheses. Archive Warnings will be listed where applicable, otherwise, there are none. Mind the tags, and happy reading ^^!
