"NOT NOW JASON" [Meme]

I just want you to know I just spent an hour generating Jason Quill memes. I cranked out over fifty of them, so they should last in the game plenty long.

And because everyone re-memes memes …

And, of course, themes and variations …

(Why, no, I would never even think of going through Imgflip’s list of most popular meme templates. Banish the thought.)

Anyway, you’ve been warned.

That first one, the text + facial expressions, is solid gold.

I’m also grateful to Dave for playing Jason as the annoyed straight man for the session. Awhile back we talked about the qualities of maturity - “kids above age X don’t take stickers” was the metaphor. I got to play Leo toggling from “we need to be serious about saving the world” to “LOL I told a Jason joke”, something he’ll ruefully regret later. But I couldn’t have done that without Dave being game.

All jocular evidence to the contrary, it sometimes feels like I spend much of my RL as annoyed straight man. :slight_smile: It’s fun channeling that into Jason, who, despite a bout of teen ennui following his Dad’s “death,” is really way too earnest for his own good (I suppose having a terminal condition hasn’t helped that). He still has a few stickers moments (like the comment elsethread about a positive JQ meme), but, then, don’t we all?

One reason I spent so much time on doing these because they really would annoy Jason (which is always amusing to me), for the phrase itself and for the chronic misgrammaring of it and for its unfathomable popularity and for places where people misquote it (or use “your” or something like that). Those are all contradictory, but that’s our Jason, who comes by his CDO honestly from both his fictional and real “parent.”

I find playing him as the guy who keeps trying to take this all more seriously than everyone else – because he feels he should, and still ends up doing that wrong, because he’s not necessarily focused on the right things to take seriously – endlessly entertaining, and if that let’s others have fun with it, too, that’s even better.

The Jalyica shipping community is huge. It’s like the number 3 tag on the HeroFic Archive. You won’t be able to outrun them for long.

I started collecting game-specific memes in a Pinterest board, but Pinterest just crapped out for me. I’ll finish it up and post the link here once things are back to normal. If anyone wants to contribute their own, I’ll add you to the board.

I would love to upload all the ones I’ve done. Easier to link into Roll20. :slight_smile:

This is why Leo maintains a secret identity.

I imagine it’s primarily people who watched the Quill cartoon and just imposed their own ideas on the two (no shipper has ever done that before /s).

On the other hand, I’m sure Leo, as the strong and silent type, would get all sorts of attention. And if they ever learned about his background, then there be both the Bad Boy and Reformed Bad Boy shippers to contend with.

So I can see the board, but not add to it.

I am at https://www.pinterest.com/3stardave/ (“Dave Hill”) if that helps give access.

“Dave has added 45 new pins”.

That’s be ridiculous.

Per the first post in the thread: _“I just want you to know I just spent an hour generating Jason Quill memes. I cranked out over fifty of them, so they should last in the game plenty long.”

_I actually left some off. :slight_smile:
