Altean!Lance & Galra!Keith Masterlist (Part 2)

Broken Bonds by yestofandoms (9/9 | 56,737 | Mature)

Keith is in desperate need of money to take care of his dying brother, Shiro, so he goes back to his old roots. Keith is hired by the Galra King, Zarkon, to kill Prince Lance as the final blow toward the Altean Kingdom, after the death of King Alfor. Keith infiltrates the Altean Castle by becoming a servant to Prince Lance.
Keith’s prerogative is to save his brother, but priorities can change when you fall for a Prince.

Down the Line by fevered_dreams (4/? | 19,846 | Explicit)

Shiro and Keith are a couple of mostly ordinary space explorers accidentally turned heroes, and Lance wants nothing more than to travel across the universe with them.

And if they happen to get embroiled with helping to put an end to a hostile, intergalactic Galran rebellion… Well, what’s an adventure without adversity?

A Moment in the Snow by Gigapoodle (1/1 | 3,378 | Not Rated)

When the Castle of Lions lands on a planet with freshly fallen snow, Lance jumps on the opportunity to drag Keith out with him and relish every moment in the weird, white powder that falls from the atmosphere.

Keith complains, but he sees just how happy Lance is playing in the stuff, and he knows he doesn’t really mean it.

Fall of an Empire by No_Name_Kane (5/? | 9,650 | Teen And Up)

Prince Lance has a lot going on right now; becoming future king, combat training- and the apparent overthrowing of his kingdom by the Galra- Altea’s worse enemy.

Prince Keith was tasked with one thing: Capture the Prince, bring him back to Galra. Yet, things still manage to go wrong.

Spoils of War by bluphacelia (2/? | 7,166 | Teen And Up)

There was an pulsing red glow somewhere, aggressively filtering through his closed eyelids. Lance groaned. It was too early for this, probably. There was a dull ache at the back of his head and he felt sore all over. What had he done last night? Was there a party? How much had he had to drink? Something felt off. He wasn’t sleeping in his bed. The surface was too hard. Too cold. Had he fallen asleep outside again? His mind felt muddled and slow as he slipped in and out of a doze.

Lance turned, trying to get more comfortable, but a rattle broke the quasi-calm and jerked him fully awake.

He wasn’t home. He wasn’t even close to home.

To Reap What You Snow by TheArtArmature (4/? | 8,770 | Teen And Up)

The Alteans and Galra used to be allies, until the rise of Zarkon and his conquest for Universal domination. When a descendant of refugee Alteans, and the genius pilot of the Galra’s Military Academy end up becoming Paladins of Voltron, it will take more than just team exercises to get this team to work together. Will they be able to form Voltron and save the universe, or will their pasts keep them from moving into the future?

South Pacific islands ban western junk food and go organic
Leaders of Vanuatu province want to turn local people and tourists away from unhealthy imports in favour of locally grown crops and seafood
By Eleanor Ainge Roy

A group of south Pacific islands are banning foreign junk food imports in favour of an all-local, organic diet as a way to combat future health problems.

Torba province, part of Vanuatu, aims to impose restrictions on the import of western foodstuffs and instead take advantage of its productive agricultural land and rich natural resources. Located in the northern part of Vanuatu, Toba is often described as the “forgotten province” and the majority of its 10,000 people are subsistence farmers.

Father Luc Dini, a community leader and head of the local tourism council, said a ban on foreign food imports would improve the health and wellbeing of islanders.

“At the moment we have an infiltration of junk food from overseas,” he said.

“It is easy to boil noodles or rice, but they have almost no nutritional value and there is no need to eat imported food when we have so much local food grown organically on our islands.”

In the far future, to combat over-population, Earth has been replicated in 17 different ‘dimensions’. There is free travel and free communication between them. Due to a mishap, you arrive at the long-abandoned Earth-12.

What do you think of the American Reaper and the future of unmanned airplanes?

The drone? I really don’t like drones, so I never pay much attention to them, but sadly, and to answer your next question, they’re the future of combat aircraft, one way or the other, where it’s basically a manner of time before they take over, Terminator and The Matrix be damned!

HISTORY MEME → [2/3] Wars: Russian Civil War

The Russian Civil War was a multi-party war in the former Russian Empire immediately after the Russian Revolutions of 1917, as many factions vied to determine Russia’s political future. The two largest combatant groups were the Red Army, fighting for the Bolshevik form of socialism led by Vladimir Lenin, and the loosely allied forces known as the White Army, which included diverse interests favoring monarchism, capitalism and alternative forms of socialism, each with democratic and antidemocratic variants. In addition, rival militant socialists and nonideological Green armies fought against both the Bolsheviks and the Whites. Eight foreign nations intervened against the Red Army, notably the Allied Forces and the pro-German armies. The Red Army defeated the White Armed Forces of South Russia in Ukraine and the army led by Admiral Aleksandr Kolchak in Siberia in 1919. The remains of the White forces commanded by Pyotr Nikolayevich Wrangel were beaten in Crimea and evacuated in late 1920. Lesser battles of the war continued on the periphery for two more years, and minor skirmishes with the remnants of the White forces in the Far East continued well into 1923. Armed national resistance in Central Asia was not completely crushed until 1934. There were an estimated 7,000,000–12,000,000 casualties during the war, mostly civilians. The Russian Civil War has been described by some as the greatest national catastrophe that Europe had yet seen.

Many pro-independence movements emerged after the break-up of the Russian Empire and fought in the war. Several parts of the former Russian Empire—Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland—were established as sovereign states, with their own civil wars and wars of independence. The rest of the former Russian Empire was consolidated into the Soviet Union shortly afterwards.

KND Top 10 Favorite Episodes

#6) Operation: T.R.A.I.N.I.N.G.

Operation: T.R.A.I.N.I.N.G. was a fun episode to watch. As much as I love to see Sector V all the time, I’m glad they weren’t in this episode because they would have taken away the spotlight these characters needed. I loved the interactions and chemistry between Tommy, Sonia, and Lee. They have so much talent for just being Cadets in this time. Tommy has shown leadership and intelligence by making the right calls in the “simulation” like the hop scotch tactic and using the escape pods to melt the ice to defeat father and his goons. Sonia (Numbuh 83 in the future) has shown her combat capabilities when being afraid of the dark and being the heart of the team convincing Tommy and Lee to fight instead of running. Finally, Lee (Numbuh 84) has shown that he can think on his feet when avoiding getting caught by father and mastery with his yo yo. These kids were perfect together and I wish they had more screen time together but that’s another discussion. 

Something weird I noticed.

Okay. something about The Love God and Blendin’s Game just doesn’t add up. I think some other people noticed this too.

In “blendin’s game” we see a younger version of Robbie, who has black-brown hair and causes trouble.

In “The Love God” we see Robbie’s childhood portraits, in which he has lighter brown hair, lighter than Dipper’s.

Although his face shape is the same, the hair is different than the Blendin’s Game version. The disposition and clothing style appears different as well. Robbie is troublemaking and rowdy in Blendin’s Game, practically a Mini-Me of the regular Robbie, but all his childhood photos are smiley and happy in The Love God.

This may seem like thin evidence of anything, especially since it may have been a throwaway joke, but knowing Hirsch this could mean something.

Also, note that in Blendin’s Game, the past Robbie referred to himself literally as “Young Robbie!” despite it being his present. it’s consistent with the way that the Globnar people say things like “ow, my time knee!” and “future combat”, despite the future being their present. Again, could be a throwaway joke but it seems suspicious to me.

it’s almost like both situations are somebody’s idea of the future and past as opposed to the real future or past. i’m not actually sure of an explanation for this, other than the possible influence of Stan’s portal, or maybe even the possibility that the Bottomless Pit let out into an alternate universe as opposed to the original universe. those don’t make much sense though, i just thought I’d point this out.

SPOT IT: BOBBI BROWN HYDRATING SKINCARE COLLECTION

Prep your skin for the perfect makeup application.

“The question I’m most often asked is how to get healthy, glowing skin. The secret to achieving this is both how you take care of yourself and what you put on your face,” says Bobbi Brown. When it comes to your complexion, there’s nothing better than having a whole team on your side. Bobbi Brown’s skin-saving collection is that team. Her glass-bottled creams and tonics work together to turn even desert-dry, parched skin into an oasis of moisture. “Our products are designed to replenish skin with immediate hydration and nutrients—exactly what it needs to look fresher, smoother, and healthier,” Brown explains, adding, “They’re also the perfect start before any makeup.” The Sephora Glossy tested a handful of lotions and potions from the line to better understand its quenching benefits and more.  JESSICA VELEZ

 

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Tonic

Once you untwist the lid, you’ll immediately discover it smells like a gin and tonic. That’s because the mineral water inside is blended with cucumber extract, among other things. But, instead of dehydrating your skin like cocktails tend to do, the alcohol-free formula does the exact opposite by applying moisture and removing impurities in the same swipe.

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Gel Cream

It looks like a cream inside, but it applies and feels just like a gel. Of course, satisfying your skin’s thirst is its major highlight, but it’d be a shame to dismiss its other qualities. It also improves your skin’s ability to lock in moisture in the future and combats toxins in the air. Who knew all that power could fit in a single bottle?

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream

If gel isn’t your preferred texture, look to this creamy counterpart. Like the rest of the collection, it smells like something you’d experience at a spa. Unlike the rest of the line, it’s packed with algae extract and caffeine for plump, ready-for-the-day skin.

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Intense Night Cream

The thickest-textured of the bunch, this night cream will actually make you excited for the sun to set. And, if you feel like you’re losing productivity at night, note that it does double—no, quadruple duty while you’re catching z’s. Here’s its nightly to-do list: hydrate, repair, soften, and even skin’s tone.

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream

Like a mind reader, this eye cream knows you’re going to follow up with concealer afterward. It uses that apt prediction to prepare your undereye area with emollients that prime skin for its next step. It’s formulated specifically for fast absorption so you’re not left twiddling your fingers waiting for it to dry before moving on. Cream that saves your skin and time? Win-win.
