        A couple of my favorite Twilight fics are:

        Mitternacht by Nyteviper - Hellsing, Iscariot, and Millennium all head to Forks. It ends up about as well as you'd think.

        The Wedding Crashers by DasMervin -
        Sam, Dean, and Castiel accompany Leah to Jacob and Renesmee's wedding. It is completely fucking hilarious.

        Though beware if you ever look at my favourite list. I never found out how to remove things and for a long time used it like a "Gotta read this sometime" list. So there is a good deal of mediocre to ehhh stuff.

        Was kind of surprised; I'd bailed halfway through season 11 last time, so hadn't watched any past that. It's not quite the same animation quality of the freelancer saga, but it's damn good regardless, and the comedy's still there.

        Re: Dark Souls 2; I'm beginning to suspect DS isn't hard so much as it is a series of increasingly dick moves amplified by increasingly dickish players, combined with poor platforming controls while it incentivizes platforming. Once you learn not to trust either, it's not so tricky.

        If they were going to do it that way, it'd have to be "Big Sis", to indicate seniority and respect.

        Railgun's subs are a trainwreck. "Ojou-sama" becomes "Darling", which... isn't exactly incorrect, just a really stupid word choice. I can't think of a better one, though. Not in english; I think the word I would use is "Madame", which isn't quite right but has similar connotations. Or "Mi'lady".

        Got stuck in the guard armor. Fixing it was a bitch; I had to use a dev command to go to the Arl's estate, then I had to use a tricky bit of collision to glitch in-bounds (because the command spawns you in the void around the house for some reason), then I had to go back and forth into the dungeon to trigger a flag that gave me my equipment back.

        Mind, you have to actually walk into the doorway, instead of clicking it, for some stupid reason. Anyways, that left me naked and with my gear back, but traveling via command reset me to guard armor again, so I unequipped my proper gear, used a command to get rid of all my gear, then re-equipped my armor.

        Now I just need it to stick.
