posted this on reddit, might as well post it here, too.

[Survey] Whats your favorite companion? (Lore and/or playstyle wise)

i have three favorites, actually: cass, veronica and raul (in no particular order). can't just pick one, all three have a special place in my heart.
cass won me over with her brutal honesty and her reasonable perspective on the situation in the mojave. she may be a patriot of the ncr, but she readily admits their flaws and shortcomings. she is wary of the legion, but again admits that people in her line of work are way better protected in legion's territory than that of the ncr. (unless they are of female persuasion, that is.) she doesn't shy away from discussing more personal topics, either. gotta respect her for all this.
cass is just fun to be around. doesn't hurt that she's so easy on the eyes, too! she also makes interesting comments on some of the locations you visit together, which adds to the experience.
i love veronica for being as friendly and cheerful as she is in direct contrast to the desolate wasteland she lives in. she's very insightful, too, and i can't help but agree with her perspective on the brotherhood. i admire her for going to such lengths to help people she cares about, even if they don't appreciate her efforts. i don't agree with bos' goals and practices, but there are genuinely good people among them (including veronica herself), and it's sad watching them slowly waste away like this.
love her cheeky sense of humor, too! did i also mention her being cute as a button? and lastly, it's fun watching her one-punch shit into oblivion. you better not mess with the kid in a potato sack!
where do i even start with raul. i initially fell for his snark; the moment he started giving me shit for taking my sweet time rescuing him upon first meeting him, as opposed to just, you know, saying thank you, i knew i want to take this guy along with me. oh, the sass of that man! calling you 'boss' while being as disrespectful and skeptical as possible? gets me every time. some of his comments had me wheezing with laughter, although sometimes it feels like he overdoes it just a bit. god forbid the courier figures out that raul tags along because he actually likes them, right? we can't have that sort of emotional attachment, oh no.
and then there's his personal quest, wherein you slowly gain his trust and friendship, and he in turn opens up to you about some of his old pain and insecurities. damn, this grandpa needs a hug and maybe a box of candy.
as for playstyle, i play on normal with a high charisma, so all three of them do well in battle.

jubal harshaw in regards to gratitude

a monkey stole my juicebox
(Jill) said bleakly, «This is your house, Doctor Harshaw, and we are in your debt. I will fetch Michael at once.» She stood up.
«Hold it, Jill.»
«Sir?»
«Sit down — and quit trying to be as nasty as I am; you don't have my years of practice. Now let's get something straight: you are not in my debt. Impossible — because I never do anything I don't want to. Nor does anyone, but in my case I know it. So please don't invent a debt that does not exist, or next you will be trying to feel gratitude — and that is the treacherous first step toward complete moral degradation. You grok that?»
Jill bit her lip, then grinned. «I'm not sure what “grok” means.»
«Nor I. I intend to go on taking lessons from Mike until I do. But I was speaking seriously. “Gratitude” is a euphemism for resentment. Resentment from most people I do not mind — but from pretty little girls it is distasteful.»
«Why, Jubal, I don't resent you — that's silly.»
«I hope you don't … but you will if you don't root out of your mind this delusion that you are indebted to me. The Japanese have five ways to say “thank you” — and every one translates as resentment, in various degrees. Would that English had the same built-in honesty! Instead, English can define sentiments that the human nervous system is incapable of experiencing. “Gratitude”, for example.»
«Jubal, you're a cynical old man. I do feel grateful to you and I shall go on feeling grateful.»
«And you are a sentimental young girl. That makes us a complementary pair. Let's go to Atlantic City for a weekend of illicit debauchery, just us two.»
«Why, Jubal!»
«You see how deep your gratitude goes?»
«Oh. I'm ready. When do we leave?»
«Hummph! We should have left forty years ago.»

How to Become a Love Interest by Celebrate_the_irony

re-reading this again, because this is one of the few fics out there that focus on wade and ellie’s relationship.
you know, when she was first introduced i was hoping wade’d have to raise her himself. maybe love for his kid and the responsibility would constitute the push he needed to get his life back on track?
of course, even back then i knew exactly how far fetched this idea is. nobody, including deadpool himself, would trust a man who can’t even take proper care of himself most days with a child. but a girl can dream, right?

GG: okay, one of your many, many problems...
GG: you have no patience to do things the right way, youre always just looking for the shortcut!
GG: even if doing so has brought you nothing but trouble a hundred times before
GG: it is sort of funny that the only thing standing in your way is one of your other problems, your preposterous self loathing
GG: so you cant even trust your future self to help you cheat!
GG: its like you have so many problems, they cancel each other out

TT: I know that anyone committed to such an affectation could only be striving to mask a severe insecurity complex, and likely harbors a crisis of self-image.
TT: I've been known to lend my charitable attention to such people, but only "bossed around" by them insofar as the psychiatric professional has cause to humor the demented for analytical purposes.

favorite sj fanfictions so far:
Where Does he Get it?, a fic about everyday details of jack's life in the future. i love the stuff.
Maybe This Will Be My Year, the gods turn aku into a mortal lest he wreak any more havoc, jack takes his now defenseless sworn enemy under his wing and is trying to teach him proper manners human morals. hilarity (and some unresolved sexual tension) ensues.
Aku's Shitty Day Off, aku is 30% grumpier and sulkier, and also really confused, when he's sick. nnng, too adorable. perfect reading for when you are yourself struck with flu.

Нет, не поэтому.

Рамки и досмотр не помогают, а только создают толпу.

Единственный действенный способ борьбы с терроризмом — перехватывать террористов на этапе подготовки атаки. После того как террорист собрал условную бомбу и вышел на улицу — поздно.

Собственно, взрывы в Волгограде это подтверждают. В автобусе взорвалась смертница, которая не собиралась там взрываться, так вышло. На вокзале взрыв был в очереди на досмотр. Да, в метро досматривают, а в трамваях и электричках — нет. В магазинах тоже.

Предотвратить на 100% нельзя. Израиль много хвалили за высочайшую квалификацию спецслужб, взрывов на транспорте у них очень мало. В итоге подростки с ножами стали прыгать на полицейских. Масштаб жертв не тот, если разнести в клочья рейсовый автобус, но истерика поднялась беспрецедентная, отчего, разумеется, идиотов с ножами и ножницами стало ещё больше. Они добились феноменального по своим меркам успеха — совершенно неприличной паники, чего они всегда и добиваются. Даже без единой щепотки пороху.

This is how it works, you little bitch. Терроризм современный — это про хайп. Это чтобы ты орал, бегал по стенам и требовал убивать, вешать, запрещать, неважно, лишь бы громко. С каждым твоим воплем вылупляется новый террорист.

В метро Питера не было терактов, за всё время это первый, готов поспорить, что за всё время больше людей на рельсах погибло. Да, от терроризма гибнут люди. Это всегда ужасно. Каждый из нас рискует оказаться среди жертв. Впрочем, шанс погибнуть в авиакатастрофе не ниже. А уж погибнуть на автомобильной трассе и вовсе вполне неиллюзорный. Хайпа при этом куда меньше и тратить деньги нас подталкивают именно на борьбу с терроризмом, а не плохими дорогами. Не строить магистрали, а фильтровать интернет от синих китов. И дело не в том, что это цинизм и типа слишком мало людей погибло, чтобы по этому поводу беспокоиться.

К сожалению, они будут гибнуть и дальше, потому что очень легко взять оружие и напасть на невооружённых мирных людей. Потому что они не той веры. Потому что они не на том языке говорят. Потому что флаг должен быть другого цвета. Потому что надо дружить не с той страной, а с этой. Потому что мы хотим и будем жить в мирных городах, где не надо брать оружие, чтобы сходить за хлебом. И поэтому всякий возомнивший себя "воином" сможет очень легко нас убивать, полагая, что это из-за нашей слабости. Мы такие бессильные, что за хлебом ходим без пистолета.

Некоторые, впрочем, считают, что за хлебом надо ходить с пистолетом, иначе власть у тебя этот хлеб отнимет. А так ты можешь во власть пульнуть. К счастью, такие девиации довольно редкие и современная цивилизация предпочитает жить без ствола под подушкой.

Нельзя борьбой со следствием победить причину. Конечно, если по улице идёт вооружённый чувак и лупит по сторонам, нужно эвакуировать людей и пристрелить ублюдка. Но это не значит, что надо заставить всех по улицам ходить голыми, чтобы видеть кто вооружён. Заставлять всех вооружаться ещё более глупо: бомбу в метро или в самолёте не пристрелишь.

Дело в другом: откуда-то у нас взялись люди, которые считают правильным взять оружие и стрелять в мирных граждан. Это значит, что могут быть ещё. Это значит, что надо понять откуда они берутся и что их на это толкает. И вот тогда что-то можно сделать, перекрыв источник.

Уповать на рамки и охранников — это сдаться. Признать, что всегда будут те, кто хочет убивать и ничего с этим поделать нельзя, нужно только обороняться всё сильнее и сильнее, всё выше строя стены и всё большее количество людей подозревая во всех грехах. Разумеется, тем самым провоцируя ещё больше насилия.
