ep 35: their nuclear option vehicle has become best friends with the Ultimate Evil only known as The Blob, Griffin is almost indortrinated to The Blob, the boys see the face of Satan, and are sent to the Sun Chips Place via garbage bin where time and space intertwine
A loud, obnoxious humming noise stirred you. Your eyes were tired and it took a lot of effort to pry them open between sleep and dried makeup gluing them together. An empty bottle, jewelry, and hairpins fell to the floor as you searched the bedside table for your phone. The buzzing stopped for a few seconds, meaning your caller had given up, and so did your hunt. But the table vibrated again shortly after.
“Hello?” you croaked into the receiver, rubbing your eyes in effort to remove the sleep.
“Don’t you sound lovely,” Harry laughed. “Guess I don’t have to ask how yeh feeling.”
“God, what time is it?” you moaned. Light was filtering through your blinds, so it was clearly morning and you’d still have time to get things done, but it felt like you had only just fallen asleep.
“One?” you sputter, sitting straight up in bed. So much for being productive. Blood rushed to your head causing it to swim and you noticed the piercing headache pulsing through your entire skull and the dry, cottony feel to your tongue and mouth.
“Yeah.” He laughed again. It’s a lovely sound; deep and a bit throaty, and, dare you think it, quite sexy. “Listen, did Tommy take care of yeh at all last night? Yeh sound like you’ve been through Hell, Bubbles.”
“Hardly,” you scoffed, gently sitting back in bed. “He left not even an hour later. Said I was a real downer with all my crying.”
“Ah, he never has dealt with emotions very well.” Harry toyed with his bottom lip, really thinking hard about what to say next. If he closed his eyes and ran his finger over his lips just so he could almost feel you on them again.
・If I know JeanMarco, I know that Jean would do nearly anything to impress Marco, although Marco is already impressed by him. It’s only a bonus for Jean if he could get an excuse to hold his boyfriend while consoling him.
・There is a new roller coaster at the carnival in town (the perfect opportunity, amirite) and Jean is really stoked for it, which Marco finds cute.
・Jean tries to convince him so they could go on the roller coaster, since Marco was a little hesitant, but after a lot of puppy eyes (courtesy of Jean) Marco gives in.
・So they’re standing in line, and Marco is a little nervous, and Jean, the cocky horseface he is, tells Marco that if he gets scared, he can always cling to him. In response, Jean gets The Look™.
・However, once they were going up the first incline v e r y s l o w l y, Jean’s anxiety kicked in, but he kept up his front in his attempt to impress Marco. When they descended the incline, Jean didn’t like how quickly they were approaching the ground.
・Freckles, however, was having a lot more fun than he thought he would, adrenaline making him excited. Jean was trying his best not to scream.
・It was the loop-de-loop that made Jean put down his front and start screaming. Marco had his hands in the air, screaming in delight. “Wheeeeeeeee!” “AHHHHHHH HOLY SHIT AHHHHHHHHHH”
・Jean ended up clinging onto Marco and leaning his head on his boyfriend’s shoulder while clenching his eyelids shut. Marco rolled his eyes and held Jean, but he still had fun.
・After seeing Jean’s fear of roller coasters, Marco bought Jean a funnel cake and cotton candy while Marco got a caramel apple, and continued to play carnival games, winning a lot of stuffed animals.
・They even went on the Ferris wheel, where they made out for a couple of minutes. (Sorry for the self-indulgence)
Okay, I’m done. I love these losers. Thanks for reading my headcanons! (ﾉ≧∀≦)ﾉ・‥…━━━★
In a special edition of I-don’t-know-wtf-I’m-doing, Oni tries some birthday Art Noveau to….varying degrees of success.
So for all y'all wrestling fans it’s MA BOI’S Mustafa Ali’s B'day right now on the 28th, go wish him a good one while I whisper comforting words to my hand :“D The gold khat on top reads "Shehzada Khusti” ie. closest approximation to “Prince of Wrestling” and the loop de loops on the top corners are the Arabic spelling for his name ie. “Mustafa Ali”.
Finally finished reading Rogue One: Catalyst by James Luceno, or as it’s also known by:
Lyra Erso: Badass;
Lyra Erso: They Could Have Easily Created Parallels Between You and Chirrut+Baze in the Film Instead of Ignoring Your Existence;
Lyra/Galen OTP Fever: How to Write a Strong, Balanced Couple While Still Giving Them Relationship Hurdles;
“I’m Thirsty for You and Your D, Galen,” Screams Krennic Into the Rain
with foreword by Galen Erso, “Who Is This? And What Does He Mean By My D?”
and annotated by Lyra Erso, *The dickbag is talking about the Death Star, honey.
Tarkin/Krennic: Hux/Kylo Ren Got Nothing On This Hate Couple
and finally: Jyn Erso Is A Normal Human Child: how this makes her future character arc 1000x more painful
NB: Have only seen the RO film and have now read this book. This is going to be long and about 90% quotes related to characterization.
Writing was okay. Not great, but not bad. (This is especially apparent since I’ve just started reading the RO novelization, and the difference in quality is pretty startling.) Nice quick read.
Lyra is fantastic.
Galen is pretty interesting.
Jyn is adorable and normal, and it breaks my heart.
Krennic is… wow, I just want to laugh because he’s so absurd but also a Terrible Human Being.
Tarkin is fascinating (see waaaay below for details).
No one holds this bitch down.
“She had no recourse. She wasn’t built to hold things in; to be complacent or compliant.”
“Some of Orson’s remarks had made her wonder whether she and Galen were under surveillance, or even whether her personal comlink might be bugged. But she didn’t care either way. Orson may have drawn the line in the sand, but she would be the one to step over it.”
is there more to the ADHD Lance hc or just that? is it by any chance based on how he acts canonly or.. ?
Evidence for ADHD Lance:
I can Sense™ the ADHD because I have it myself. I look at him and I think “Boy… That boy has ADHD”
He’s waaaaaaay impulsive; my boy was doing loop-de-loops in the simulator, didn’t even hesitate to try and sneak out of a military base just to have some fun, literally approached a crashed spaceship and busted in just ‘cause he saw Keith was doing it, found a giant blue lion and went ‘fuckin SWEET.’ This literally all happened in the first like, ten minutes of the show.
Other examples of impulsiveness right off the top of my head: He heard Coran crying out for help and ran into a goddamn airlock without even thinking, the whole thing with Nyma lmao, Lance’s pretty reckless style of flying.
As a whole Lance is mostly ‘act first, party later’ which could be an example of the ‘Irresponsible Teenage Boy’ trope but c’mon… C’mon.
In that one scene where everyone is crowded around Sendak waiting for the memories to download or whatever, Lance is the one constantly moving. At one point he even gets on the floor and starts cycling his legs in the air.
And this isn’t just an example of ‘Oh, Lance gets bored, so what’- Lance was literally the last person to leave Shiro, he could have ditched like everyone else but because he wanted to stay he forced his body into moving so he would stay focused. I do this all the time lmao.
Lance talks a lot with his hands and also uses lots of gestures, I do this too a lot because I instinctively keep my hands busy at all times lmao. I’m pretty sure if you put anything within Lance’s grasp in a few minutes he’ll start fiddling with it.
Lance never fucking shuts up, something which my ADHD ass finds #RELATABLE. He’s constantly interjecting, even when it’s just a really lame one-liner, which to me is evidence that he just says whatever’s off the top of his head.
I find driving a car to be one of the hardest things in the world (there’s so much shit going on, constantly) so can you imagine flying a giant blue lion in SPACE? No wonder Lance always seems to crash into things, there’s like a hundred distractions at any given moment. Plus, he’s also always running his mouth.
There are moments in the show where I’m like “Oh my god, Lance is totally hyperfocusing right now.” It’s usually while the team is forming Voltron. I also imagine that’s why Lance is so good with his gun- while you stare down the scope there’s only one target, and if you hyperfocus on that… Goddamn.
The fact that Lance sleeps with an eye mask AND with music. Sleeping with ADHD is so goddamn hard, I hate it. I get the best sleep of my life when I use an eyemask and listen to music, I need to start doing this again.
Lance has a lot of mood swings, he goes from overexcited to pissed off to flirty in like two seconds. He also can be overly aggressive and shows a lack of restraint sometimes. Evidence: His rivalry with Keith and the fact that they literally flew their Lions straight down into the ground like. I want to make fun of Lance for that, but I would literally end up doing the same thing lmao.
Lance also seems to get along really well with his Lion. The way Lions communicate with their Paladins seems to be through wordless suggestions/impulses. ADHD Lance would be used to going along with whatever the strongest idea in his head is, so while everyone is struggling with having another presence in their mind Lance is like ’LOL this feels normal’ and forms a super tight bond with Blue.
