Atom-Crash

VLD Theory: Altea and the Alteans

Alright, so,, we all know that there are a few plot holes and a lot of unanswered questions when it comes to the Alteans and the Galra. Like: 

  • If Alteans are such a peaceful species, what requires them to have training droids who are not only set for Altean child combatants, but whose child setting is enough to take down 5 garrison-experienced humans in less than a minute flat? 
  • Why build Voltron, the most powerful weapon in the universe, in the first place, especially if during the time of its construction, the Galra and the Alteans were at peace?
  • How did the war even start? It’s not like the Galra and the Alteans had a distant kind of peace–they worked together to defend the universe. Where did that go?
  • How deep does the connection with the Galra even run? We know that they were close enough to create Voltron together, and that its creation wasn’t a secret kept between just Zarkon and Alfor. Allura even refers to a time when she traveled through Galran transportation hubs. Just how far back do they go?

Well I think I picked up on something within the new info given to us in season 2, and my thought process while answering all these questions relies strongly on this speculation. So sit back folks because this is gonna be a Lot.

They key to all of this is that I believe that in season 2, during Shiro’s escapades in the Black Lion, the destroyed planet we see is none other than Altea itself.

Gravity & Other Gay Forces of the Universe

a love poem for @thesylverlining & the stars where we call Home.

***

Long before I was a twinkle in my mother’s eye,
or she a twinkle in her’s,
we were all (twinkle) little stars,
and that, I think, is where I met you first.

Maybe I was hydrogen
and you were helium,
or you were iron
and I was carbon,
or maybe there was no “you” and “I” as we know us now;
perhaps there was just us.
Hydrogen and helium and iron and carbon,
all at once.

After billions and billions of years, we blew up
(which I hope isn’t an omen)
and the star that was (is?) us shot its guts across the sky
and I lost you. Us.

It’s probably a good thing I don’t remember it
(but sometimes I think I do, the ache of an old bruise
that never truly healed,
born anew when I look at the empty black spaces
inside the little dipper)
and I wonder what I thought of while you were gone,
if I knew we’d be us again,
if I was too busy hurling through the vacuum of space
trying to keep my atoms together
long enough to crash land on a blue speck -
a twinkle no more.

I like to think I found you before this life;
through the age of sword
and superstition,
ice and dark,
each one cursing gravity for keeping me bound,
tethered,
trapped.

Until a song -
your song -
clears the cobwebs of lightyears from my human heart
and I remember what it is like to be
us, all at once.

And gravity is a binding chain no more,
but the force that keeps me where you are.
For as long as my star is flesh,
I wish to be flesh.
As long as my star sings here,
I wish to stay to listen.

When Earth is done with us
(or when we are done with the Earth)
I wonder what we’ll be next;
you, carbon, me, iron, us -
stardust all the same.

I dare the universe to blow us apart again;
I dare it to find a force stronger than your song
and my heart.

We’ve already charted the stars just to land on the same blue dot,
and that, I think,
is a force all its own.

it hurts.

my sins are a litany
of long nights
lost to their own confessions
and i do not feel whole or holy
in this room when i’m with you.

when i go hungry now
i make your name a prayer
for my relief
but you are not
the answer for this wanting
you are not the answer.
when you call it by its name
you are and aren’t the simple truth of it
and i will echo back for you
the voice of all the vicious hymns you sang
that hurt me now to hear them
forcing their way in
like every guest who never knocked
every stranger making himself comfortable
inside me

and i am sorry now
i never told you everything
you never heard from me the way
i stood behind a door
and told myself
to prepare for what could happen
when it opened
i told myself
and took a breath
and i was not prepared.

and you came on like
the whisper of an atom bomb
the crashing quiet in my coffin
everything too much or not enough
that i am full of every day
every fragment of my struggle and defeat
feels just like you

and to think
that what i saw in you
were several ways to safely self-destruct
and never bleed -

sometimes, i can be so wrong
it hurts

Your atoms keep clumsily crashing into mine as if you were a lone Hydrogen atom looking for another to fill your outer shell of electrons to become Hydrogen in it’s diatomic state. A structure comparable to that of Helium, a noble gas.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that there’s a strong affinity between the two of us. That we will always be stronger, and more stable when we are together.

A massive meteor lit up the sky over the Atlantic

On February 6, an approximately five to seven-meter wide meteor with force comparable to an atomic bomb crashed into the Atlantic ocean off the coast of Brazil, making it the largest to strike earth since Chelyabinsk in 2013, according to Forbes. But don’t get too excited.
