AO3 needs an exclude button like yes i want established relationship NO i do not want angst or major character death
You can actually do this already!
To filter out angst, it’s -filter_ids:176 in the ‘Search within results’ field of the filters. To filter out major character death, it’s -filter_ids:18. Put them together and filter by established relationships, and your filter bar should look like:
Voila! Established relationship, no angst, no major character death! (As long as the creator tagged for their angst and major character death.)
Stand where you are, look around, and list whatever liquidy thing is closest to you. This is now your fanfic lube.
Nature’s Miracle “Just for Cats” stain and odor remover.
Celibacy is looking like a good option here.
Gin and tonic. SEXY
100% pure acetone. I think I lose this game forever.
Cold tea. Um.and I are in a pie shop and ours is fancy hot sauce. Um….
Ranch dressing. YEE HAW
Potato soup? No.
Glue, plain old white school glue. I am laughing more than I should.
Bath and Body Works Twilight Woods body spray.
…. That would fail so much.
Upon second viewing, I have definitely concluded that Guardians of the Galaxy is even better when you imagine it as a tabletop campaign with an increasingly frustrated DM who’s sick of being interrupted.
GM: “Roll 2d10.”
Peter: “Red high. Twelve.”
GM: “You have 12 percent of a plan.”
The entire prison break scene was just Rocket’s player rolling knowledge checks on every turn until something worked.
- When Drax’s player said, “I go into the phone booth and call Ronan to Knowhere”, the DM stared open-mouthed for a minute, then called break time. The rest of the party was speechless.
- Pretty much just in general, Drax’s player is one of those people who thinks Chaotic Neutral means “throws self at shit for the lulz” and is really fortunate he didn’t have many other opportunities to derail the campaign.
- Gamora’s player gets really exasperated by the entirety of the campaign. They rolled a character with a tragic backstory and clear hooks to the villain to expand on, and had no idea that everyone else was going to be so silly. It leads to begging the party to just once execute a normal plan because look at Gamora’s stealth bonus, this min/maxed assassin needs a chance to use her abilities, please.
- Rocket’s a skill monkey who, if not for Drax’s grand display of idiocy, would have gladly derailed the campaign with absurd plans.
- Groot was a joke idea someone came up with that people ended up liking too much.
- Ronan’s confusion when Star Lord began dancing was the DM’s confusion verbatim.
- The DM now vetoes Chaotic Neutral characters on principle.
