a little of both i think

Language, Daniel.

Description: Dan and Phil are playing Crash Bandicoot on the gaming channel, and Dan’s getting just a little out of hand. In the end, they both end up needing a bit of a calming down.

Side Note: In case you’ve forgotten (because it really has been a while; sorry for the delay) or haven’t seen this clip, I’ve made a couple gifs (sorry if they don’t work):

Warnings: Swearing, mentions of sex and sexual situations but no sex 

Genre: Fluff 

Word Count: 656

“I think it tastes of like… the taste of…” Phil pauses, only briefly, but it’s still noticeable to the viewers. Dan, however, pays no attention. He’s not even exactly sure what Phil said in the first place. Dan is completely focused on the screen; he’s probably trying harder than he should be to beat the Crash Bandicoot level, but he’s on the gaming channel, so it’s only fair for him to want to prove his skill at the game to millions of people. “artificial grape mixed with an orange-” Phil finally finishes his sentence, but nobody’s ever sure if he planned to say more, because he’s rudely interrupted by loud screaming to his right. 

“Fuck you!” Phil’s eyes widen at the sudden, earsplitting sound of his boyfriend raging. He must have fallen while Phil wasn’t looking. “That was fucking… on the fuck fuck.” 

After Dan’s finished spluttering obscenities, Phil impulsively opens his mouth. “Language, Daniel. There’s babies watching this.” 

It starts with the tiniest smile. First, Dan struggles to keep the corners of his mouth in their places, then he sees the huge smile on Phil’s face and they’re both laughing their asses off. Phil’s not exactly sure why he chose the words he did; there’s probably a bit of 2009-esque randomness left in him. After about five seconds, when the two finally sit up straight and wipe the tears from their eyes, they’re both fully aware of the fact that they’ll need to add a jumpcut to edit out their laughing; there’s no reason for it to take up time. Therefore, they’ve got a bit of a break. They can say and do whatever they want and know they’ll edit it out later. At first, it’s about the same they’d say if it was live. 

“I don’t know whose infant has decided to watch our videos, but I feel bad for the baby we’re influencing,” Dan manages to get out in between restarting laughs. 

“Maybe if it wasn’t for you and all your fucking profanity…” Phil grins, being the biggest hypocrite possible just for the hell of it. 

“You really are the polar opposite of your branding; you know that, right?” 

At this point, the two look about the opposite of who they’re expected to be; Dan’s wearing a soft smile and Phil’s face is carved into a sly smirk. Phil’s smirk only grows as he delivers his response. “I’m not a cute, innocent bean? Yeah, I know.” He snakes his hand around Dan’s waist, wheeling his chair towards the chestnut-haired man. 

Dan’s face reddens as he wraps his arms around Phil’s neck, allowing Phil to lean him back and lie on top of him. “Getting less and less innocent by the second,” Dan chokes out before their lips collide. Phil almost immediately bites down on Dan’s bottom lip, causing the younger boy to gasp and allowing him to slide his tongue into his mouth. After a moment, Phil pulls away and starts planting soft, wet kisses on Dan’s neck. “Phil,” Dan moans. “We have to film.” 

“So? We do still owe them a sex tape.”

Dan laughs, having nearly forgotten the bit from all those years ago. “But seriously, we can do this later. I don’t think we should be filming if I’m covered in bruises.” 

Phil chuckles, but backs off, knowing Dan’s right. “That escalated quickly,” Phil says, reviewing his own behavior in his head. 

“You got that right. Have fun rewatching that in editing.” 

“I’ll invite you; we can have a watch party.” 

“I’ll bring the condom if you bring the lube.” 

“It’s a deal.” 

The two take a moment to calm themselves from their heated tangent before Dan hands Phil the controller. “I believe it’s your turn.” 

“Okay,” Phil said, pressing the start button on the controller and letting out a laugh so his face would look like it did when he knew he would insert a jump cut. “Here we go.” 

This is obvious and has probably already been stated but you know what’s cool?

Finn and L.xa, both made it blatantly obvious that they were into Clarke and that they loved her, to the point of losing themselves (Finn shooting the grounder camp and L.xa bowing to her and compromising her people’s political position for her.) They both proved love is weakness.  

Bellamy, on the other hand, did many things to show how much he cares about her but he doesn’t like throw himself at her feet. Because they’re partners and they’re equals and he loves her for that. She helped shape him and make him better and he did the same for her. Proving love can be strength. 

And she loves him more than anyone because of that. 

I want you back

A/N: a little angst


It’s been almost a year since you and Diana broke up and you’ve both been a wreck. You sort of get weekly updates from Barry, telling you that Diana has never looked the same since you two split up. You tried to move on but all you could think about was her smile, her voice, her love.


“Well what does she look like?” You asked sadly.


“miserable.”



You were at the tower, hanging out with Barry and Bruce until you heard silence fell and a small gasp.


You turned and you felt your heart stop. It was Diana, a miserable looking, gray colored Diana. She had bags under her eyes and her hair was in a messy ponytail. You felt you eyes sting with tears.


“we will leave you two be,” Bruce said awkwardly, taking Barry away. You felt the room get tighter with tension as you both stared at each other.


“Y/N…” Diana whispered, her voice hoarse. “I need to talk to you.”


You felt yourself boil with anger, remembering that she was the one that broke you two up. “Do you want to say sorry? I’ve been waiting awhile,” you hisses, making the amazonian flinch. “You hurt me Diana. Why do you think you deserve the right?!”


“because I regret it,” Diana admitted. “I don’t go every single day without regretting it. Every second I think of you. I always ask Barry if you are safe. But I know that I broke your heart and I can never fix that but…”


Neither of you realized it but you two were in each other’s space all of the sudden but neither of you cared. “I miss the way you talk and laugh, I miss your smile. I miss your everything.” You clenched your jaw, all of the feelings you felt for Diana flooding back like a tsunami.


“I don’t think I can live without you, (Y/N).” That made your skip a beat as you saw the woman you once loved come back in your eyes.


“Then why did you break up with me,” you whimpered, sniffling.


“I thought it was because it would protect you but really I was scared. I was scared I wouldn’t be able to save you. But I’m not scared anymore because I know you can take care of yourself. It was the biggest mistake of my life.”


You two were centimeters away from each other’s lips and it felt so good to be close to her like that again.


“Y/N, I love you.” At those words she kissed you softly, her lips almost feeling like a ghost. You wrapped your arms around her neck, feeling like the world blew up into colors and new sounds. The love of your life was back in your arms, kissing you. You both kissed for several minutes, not wanting to let go.


You eventually pull back to get air and saw tear stains on her cheeks. Her eyes were puffy red and she was smiling.


“I love you too, Diana.”

If you had to pick a date, who would you pick?

With that being said I want to wish everyone a Happy Aroha Selca Day! I hope all of you have an amazing day!

Whenever I hear this song I think about my mom and how she used to sing this to me when I was little and it makes me see it in a different perspective…

“I’ve been afraid of changing,
cuz i’ve built my life around you,
time makes you older,
children get older,
I’m getting older too”

Is almost reminding me of her letting me go to out on my own as an adult and us both having to adjust not being around each other and confessing that she isn’t timeless like we perceive our parents to be.. and as they watch us grow, they’re growing too and to not forget about their needs as the become seniors…

It makes me so sad. 

Saturdays

“What do you think?”

Kara almost cries, “No. Nope. Undo it.”

Lena’s ushering their three-year-olds into the kitchen. They’re in matching, pale pink tights and leotards, with little pink slippers, and their blonde curls pulled into tiny, messy buns.

She kisses a tear off of Kara’s cheek and wraps an arm around her waist, “They’re growing up.”

“Too fast. Make it stop.”

Lena laughs, “I’m not sure I can do that, love.”

“Can you try?”

“For you? Anything.”

“Thank you.”

“Mama! Watch!” Audrey looks up with her big green eyes, until both Kara and Lena are looking at her.

She whips her arms around to give herself enough momentum to spin around, then quickly loses her balance, and falls right on her butt—giggling the whole time.

Her twin sister follows suit a half a second later, with the same result.

Lena and Kara laugh, “Very graceful.”

“Oh yeah. They’re naturals.”

Lena grabs her phone off the counter and snaps a photo of the twins, sending it off to Alex & Maggie.

LENA: First ballet class!
ALEX: The cuteness!
ALEX: They’re so grown up!
MAGGIE: AGREED.
LENA: Working on it.
LENA: Promised my wife I’d make them stop growing up.
ALEX: I’ll help you with that.
MAGGIE: Yes please.
MAGGIE: Then bring whatever it is to me ASAP.

Maggie shoots a quick photo of Gertie, who’s sitting behind her, up on the bleachers overlooking Lainey’s soccer game. She’s got a book open on her knees, wearing dark jeans, black high-top Chucks, and a military-green jacket that is way too big on her with the sleeves rolled up. Her dark curls tumble down past her shoulders, and she stole Maggie’s sunglasses.

She looks 8 going on 18.

Lena texts back instantly.

LENA: Noooo.

She hands the phone to Kara to see.

ALEX: OH MY GOD.
ALEX: My baby! :(
ALEX: Is that your jacket?
MAGGIE: It was cold this morning.
MAGGIE: I regretted it immediately.
LENA: She looks about five minutes away from borrowing the keys to your Triumph…
ALEX: KARA DANVERS YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH.
MAGGIE: You’re dead to me, kid.

you ever think about how, with a navy upbringing, james was probably more than a little touch-starved? i see thomas as easily affectionate, and when he starts giving james lil friendly touches, and then eventually less than platonic ones too, james is just like '... how do i ask for more?' thomas obviously catches on and makes sure to give like x2 the amount. after the reunion theyre both so extremely touch starved, they almost forget to be hesitant as they just melt into eachother.

anonymous asked:

Reylo or Jonerys?

Both ships has taken over my sanity lately lol. If I have to choose, I’ll pick up Reylo first. I’ve been part of the fandom since 2015 and thus I growth more attached to the community. I have more mutuals and I’ve been part of some little drama here and there. I just kinda feel more connected with the shippers in some way. And even though I multiship Rey with Finn and Kylo, Reylo will be always my first choice. 

I’ve been shipping Jonerys since 2014 (when I first watched the show) but I didn’t start being this active since this year, I don’t feel that connection that I have now with Reylo, yet. However I can’t bring myself to ship Dany or Jon with anybody else, It just irks me inside when I think about both of them with another person, probably the only ship that makes me feel this way.

anonymous asked:

i've been itching to ask this for a long ass time now (ever since that one hc of mitsunari accidentally calling nene "mom"): could you do more hcs of interactions between the bitter bun child and the mother of roast?

OMG THE MOTHER OF ROAST… THAT POST IS SO OLD NOW LMFAOOO

But, funnily enough, in the given story my friend and I are writing, it’s a very essential point that Nene and Mitsunari have a close relationship–because at it’s core, we kind of wanted to touch upon the iteration of the fact that they’re rather similar people at their cores and that they both come from some complicated family backgrounds with very strained relationships (though of course in differing ways). 

SO… WHAT I MEAN IS YES, I CAN ABSOLUTELY GIVE YOU HCS ABOUT HER AND THE BITTER BUN BOY LMAOOO

  • Mitsunari like… immediately has her on a shit list from the get go, because he doesn’t just approve of anyone being close with Hideyoshi. Nene frankly thinks little of it, because she didn’t choose this marriage for herself (she and Hideyoshi aren’t actually that close for quite some time), so she promptly ignores most of Mitsunari’s pratter about it.
  • Because Mitsunari is more extra than any of us even realize sometimes, he makes a point to, uh… observe Nene more often so she can “prove” herself. 
    • This starts with Mitsunari wanting to test her intelligence–Hideyoshi’s partner must be of great wit, after all!–but he ends up losing fairly badly in a shogi match, and he’s real bitter about it.
    • He promptly begins following her around a lot, and while everybody else thinks he’s suddenly become attached, he keeps insisting it’s because he’s gathering information! You incessant fools!
    • He’s lowkey the fool because he looks like a little lost duckling faithfully trailing after its mother.
  • Things start to change the first time Mitsunari follows her into town–Nene frequently dresses plainly to disguise herself and does a lot of work with the villagers to both assist the people and gather information among them. Mitsunari hadn’t actually realized she did so much footwork and is fairly stunned by it.
    • Nene promptly tells him to stop dawdling around, and hands him a box to carry.
    • “I don’t mind if you want to hang around, but at least put yourself to some use.”
  • There is a sudden 180 shift in Mitsunari’s interactions with her, and now he really does actually (without realizing it) follow her around faithfully while showing genuine interest in the work she does–he asks a lot of questions, because he’s a curious little thing.
  • Nene finds this change a little odd, as she doesn’t quite understand where it came from, but she’s a bit naturally maternal herself–so finding Mitsunari so eager to follow after her just makes her want to take care of him lmao. She thinks it’s cute.
  • Mitsunari’s relationship with Nene is a surprisingly easy one for him, because the both of them are particularly quiet and introverted people–Nene can appreciate enjoying someone’s presence without the need of conversation and also doesn’t pry much into Mitsunari’s life, as she thinks it’s not her place to do so. But because there is a mutual trust and Mitsunari has grown to see Nene as a sort of safe space, he can confide in her a little more easily than others at times.
  • While Nene’s not particularly fazed by Mitsunari’s crass tongue, she knows when he’s either gone too far or isn’t being very appropriate, and isn’t afraid to call him out on it. To the surprise of most everyone, Mitsunari tends to listen.
  • Mitsunari’s relationship with Nene actually kind of helps ground him in his hero worship of Hideyoshi–because he’s close with the both of them, he actually doesn’t have the option to be entirely blindsided to how rocky their relationship is in the beginning, and because he cares about Nene, too, he can’t just put all the blame on her like he could with someone else. 
  • Nene actually considers Mitsunari as someone very precious to her in her life, especially after the realization of the fact that she can’t have children. Though they’re actually a little closer in age (about three years apart), Mitsunari has always subconsciously looked upon her as a mother-like figure, and she takes care of him like one would. She learns, after some time, that even if she can’t have children, that she already has a family of her own–and Mitsunari is one of the first people to help her come to that conclusion.

Yeah now that we finally have Steve’s side I’m sure everyone will like him a little more haha it’s funny as an author to know something that will change the entire view of the story way before hand because watching everyone react positively is amazing ❤️❤️

You knpw how Fatgum can absorb people in his fat defense form right? Can I ask a scenario about his s/o talking to a friend which they didn't meet for awhile and he is so jealous he went up to them, absorb his s/o, said they're mine and left. I don't know why but I think this is so cute

It would be really cute! Thank you for the request! Sorry it took so long! ❤


Taishiro Toyomitsu (Fatgum)

Both you and your boyfriend were in the middle of a little date when your name was called. It turned out to be an old friend from your past. You had gotten up to greet them and hadn’t stopped talking since.

Toyomitsu was getting impatient just watching you talk to them. This was supposed to be a cute little date between just the two of you. Instead, he was left staring at the two of you as he stirred his straw around his cup. The staring turned more into glaring and all he wanted to do was get your attention back on him and only him.

A few more minutes passed and he started getting annoyed. Your friend was ruining what was supposed to be your first date in quite some time. Toyomitsu was trying to be patient but seeing you laughing with your friend was really shredding away all his patience.

5 minutes later and he’d had enough. In a matter of seconds he made it over to you two and with absolutely no hesitation, absorbed you right up. With your friend staring wide eyed at him, he glared and said one simple word, “Mine.”

You didn’t have any time to react and were too shocked to even try to get out. Your boyfriend had never done anything like this before and honestly, you never saw this coming.

Toyomitsu walked away from your friend and right out of the diner’s doors, where he let you back out. Words could not express how confused you were as you stared at him.

Realization of what he’d done hit him and his eyes widened. He wasn’t thinking and just acted on jealousy. He awkwardly looked down at you and started apologizing for his behavior, “I’m really sorry Y/n. I don’t know what got over me. Your friend was taking all your attention and it ruined the date. It was supposed to be just me and you, not me at the table and you with them. I know I shouldn’t have done that but I guess I just got jealous. I’m sorry.”

You wanted to tell him off for his actions but you couldn’t help but think about how cute he was. It certainly wasn’t nice to your friend but you knew Toyomitsu would make it up to them.

You smiled at him, “It’s okay! I understand, just don’t let it happen again and everything will be just fine! Also, I’m sorry I wasn’t paying attention to you. I think we can make it up to each other on our next date, yeah?”

He nodded, happy with your forgiveness, “Yeah. The next one will be awesome!”

The next date would be awesome, and so would be the following ones. All while this one would be looked at with laughter over someone’s jealous actions. This date turned out to be pretty memorable.

I’ve actually had this rolling around in my head for weeks and it was funny when I first thought of it. Sometimes I am self-conscious of my dumb ideas.  

Important Quotes from GRRM

“Some people I met thought we have to find the story’s through line. Who’s the important character? Somebody thought that Dany’s the important character – cut away everybody else, tell the story of Dany. Or Jon Snow. Those were the two most popular characters to build everything around, except you’re losing 90 percent of the story. “ - Rollingstone 2014

“[T]hey couldn’t get a handle on the size of the material, the very thing that I set out to do. I had all these meetings saying, “There’s too many characters, it’s too big — Jon Snow is the central character. We’ll eliminate all the other characters and we’ll make it about Jon Snow.” Or “Daenerys is the central character. We’ll eliminate everyone else and make the movie about Daenerys.” And I turned down all those deals.” -Time Magazine 2017

These two quotes are probably the most important quotes from George because he plainly states that the story is not just about Jon/Dæny. George narrows them down to being only 10% of the story. Are they important? Yes. But so are a host of other characters.


“So all that time I thought Gandalf was dead, and now he’s back and now he’s Gandalf the White. And, ehh, he’s more or less the same as always, except he’s more powerful. It always felt a little bit like a cheat to me. And as I got older and considered it more, it also seemed to me that death doesn’t make you more powerful. That’s, in some ways, me talking to Tolkien in the dialogue, saying, “Yeah, if someone comes back from being dead, especially if they suffer a violent, traumatic death, they’re not going to come back as nice as ever.“ That’s what I was trying to do, and am still trying to do, with the Lady Stoneheart character.” - Time Magazine, 2017

Death does not make you stronger or nicer. Applying this to Jon, he is not the same and never will be.


“At some points, when [Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] and I had discussions about what way we should go in, I would always favor sticking with the books, while they would favor making changes,” he said. “I think one of the biggest ones would probably be when they made the decision not to bring Catelyn Stark back as Lady Stoneheart. That was probably the first major diversion of the show from the books and, you know, I argued against that, and David and Dan made that decision.” - Time Magazine, 2017

Leaving Lady Stoneheart out was something George feels is a big mistake, we can assume that Lady Stoneheart is integral to the storyline in the unreleased books.


"It was the summer of 1991. I was still involved in Hollywood. My agent was trying to get me meetings to pitch my ideas, but I didn’t have anything to do in May and June. It had been years since I wrote a novel. I had an idea for a science-fiction novel called ”Avalon. I started work on it and it was going pretty good, when suddenly it just came to me, this scene, from what would ultimately be the first chapter of A Game of Thrones. It’s from Bran’s viewpoint; they see a man beheaded and they find some direwolf pups in the snow. It just came to me so strongly and vividly that I knew I had to write it. I sat down to write, and in, like, three days it just came right out of me, almost in the form you’ve read.”- Rollingstone, 2014

The Starks sparked the idea, and are at the very root of the story, but not the entire story. This also emphasizes that this book is not just about a bastard and dragon. +Bran is important, though the show fails to portray this.


“You have to remember that I started writing this story in 1991 and I first met David and Dan in 2007. I was living with these characters and this world for 16 years before we even started working on the show. They’re pretty fixed in my mind and I’m not going to change anything because of the show, or reaction to the show, or what fans think. I’m just still writing the story that I set out to write in the early 1990s.- Time Magazine, 2017

Self-explanatory.


I think there are two types of writers, the architects and the gardeners. The architects plan everything ahead of time, like an architect building a house. They know how many rooms are going to be in the house, what kind of roof they’re going to have, where the wires are going to run, what kind of plumbing there’s going to be. They have the whole thing designed and blueprinted out before they even nail the first board up.”

The gardeners dig a hole, drop in a seed and water it,“ he told the Guardian. "They kind of know what seed it is, they know if [they] planted a fantasy seed or mystery seed or whatever. But as the plant comes up and they water it, they don’t know how many branches it’s going to have, they find out as it grows.-2011, The Guardian

“In the case of any of my novels, I know where I’m starting from, I know where I want to end up, more or less,” he said. “I know some of the big turning points along the way, the stuff I’m building for, but you discover an awful lot along the way. Characters rise up and seem more important, and you get to what you’d thought was going to be a big turning point and… the thing you’d thought about two years ago doesn’t really work as well, so you have a better idea! There’s always that process of discovery for me. I know not all writers work that way, but it’s always been the way I work.” -Time Magazine, 2017

Putting these quotes together because they’re implying similar things. 

George has a view of where he’s going but that doesn’t mean things can’t be reimagined. For an example, George’s original outline is almost completely different from the books we have now, but a few parts of the outline are still there, but taking shape in different characters.


I did consider in the very early stages not having the dragons in there. I wanted the Targaryen’s symbol to be the dragons, but I did play with the notion that maybe it was like a psionic power, that it was pyrokinesis — that they could conjure up flames with their minds. I went back and forth. My friend and fellow fantasy writer Phyllis Eisenstein actually was the one who convinced me to put the dragons in, and I dedicated the third book to her. And I think it was the right call.” -2017 Meduza


“In some senses, Theon is struggling all the way through to be a hero. They both come out of the same situation: they’re both raised in Winterfell by Eddard Stark, but they’re not part of the real, core family. Theon is a ward, and Jon Snow is a bastard son. So they’re both a little outside, but Jon handles this successfully, and Theon fails to handle this. He is poisoned by his own envy and his sense of not belonging.” -2017 Meduza

This quote brings the Season 7 scene with Jon and Theon to mind. Theon tells Jon that he always made the right decision, while Theon made the wrong decisions (choosing the Greyjoys over the Stark family that raised him). Jon will make the right decision.


“So many readers were reading the books with so much attention that they were throwing up some theories, and while some of those theories were amusing bulls— and creative, some of the theories are right. At least one or two readers had put together the extremely subtle and obscure clues that I’d planted in the books and came to the right solution." -The Telegraph, 2014

Extremely Subtle and obscure hints; George’s bittersweet ending will not be predictable. Only a few people have figured out the ending. If your predicted ending involves ultimate good (humans) vs ultimate evil (others), you already lost.

As time passes, the bonds between the IPRE increase and that probably increases the power of the engine. Right at the beginning, though, as they’re racing away from one of the early worlds, Davenport has the sinking realization that it’s not enough. The engine is not running on enough power to outrun the apocalypse again, and of course it isn’t, because it was designed for a leisurely two-month exploration and not a high-speed chase. They’re not going to make it. And he thinks his crew must realize that, too, because they’re all nervously glancing out of the windows as he narrowly evades another deadly blow. 

Damn it all, they’re his responsibility, they look to him for guidance and he’s going to get all of them killed because he couldn’t do the one thing he’s best at well enough. They’re good people and they don’t deserve this. He doesn’t know why, but suddenly it’s vital that they all know that they’re more to him than just strangers. 

“If we don’t make it out of this,” he calls over his shoulder, “I want you all to know that it was an honor to travel with you.” He can’t turn his attention away from where they’re going, but he can feel their stares on his back. And, because he’s the best at what he does, he can feel the ship shudder slightly under him, gaining the smallest surge of extra energy in the engine. 

The bonds engine, which runs on bonds. Fuck.

Davenport calls out again, this time with far less gravitas: “If any of you want to, I don’t know, hug it out or something now would be a great time.”

It takes a moment for them to catch on, but they’re his crew, so of course they do.

“I think you have beautiful eyes!” It’s Barry, suddenly the approximate complexion of a tomato, and he’s got his face in his hands seconds later so it’s not even clear who he was talking to but the outburst sets the rest of them off.

“Lucretia, you have lovely handwriting even though I can’t read a damn word!”

“Magnus, for the love of whatever gods are watching, you are very brave but please stop getting yourself killed?”

“Those cupcakes without the icing that you made are kickass, Taako!” (And, somewhere in the background an indignant shriek of “Muffins? Do you mean muffins, Magnus?”)

“You make the best coffee at three in the morning which is some kind of fucking lost art, and that’s the only reason you’re allowed to correct my notes even though I was absolutely right about that last equation you erased, wasn’t I?

That was an accident, Lup - Merle I think your approach to both horticulture and religion are… uniquely inspired.”

“Davenport, you are a very brave leader and I appreciate all of the difficult decisions you make.”

They’ve almost got it. They’re almost there, they might make it after all, they just need a little more power. It comes from a very unlikely source.

“That’s just our luck, right?” Taako is looking out of the window, and he sees what Davenport sees, that the force chasing them is still just a little too fast. “Finally get used to having these chucklefucks around and now we’re gonna get eaten. Finally find some people worth keeping and boom, apocalypse. It’s fucking ridiculous.”

Everyone is staring again. Taako’s ears twitch lower as he realizes what he’s just said, aloud, at a clearly audible volume and obviously unintentionally. Magnus sniffles a little, clearly moved, and mutters “Aw, dude.”

Lup sneaks up on Taako and hugs him from behind, holding him firmly in place as Magnus and then the others join in. Davenport is the only one who notices the moment when they outrun the Hunger one more time, just barely slipping through its grasp.

(Davenport considers organized bonding activities after that, but he watches his crew make a mess of breakfast together the next morning, and he realizes that isn’t necessary.)

okay, can we talk about keith’s vlog tho? because all i see right now is that “we already have too much keith” and it makes me mad so i need to rant. here we go.

first of all, coran was so happy that he set up this system so he and the team could record vlogs and maybe talk about fun things and stuff like that. but keith lived on a desert for so long he didn’t even know what “fun” is at this point and he’s not the kind of person that would talk simply to fill the silence. so of course when you tell him to sit in front of the camera and talk, he will finally just say whatever is on his mind. and he starts to talk about being half-galra? 

like, it’s on his mind all the time; not only that he’s not 100% human but also that because of who he is allura hated him and other altea people would probably feel the same. most of the time keith acts like he doesn’t care about anyone but maybe shiro, but the truth is he cares so much? about what allura thinks, about what hunk thinks. he just bottles it up like everything else.

and then the “vol- tron” scene with lance. keith still thinks about that! he’s frustrated because a stupid chant shouldn’t be this complicated but keith thinks it’s important to lance. he doesn’t understand even tho he wants to! i don’t know, i just felt like pointing this out because of Reasons. 

and then probably the most important part. where keith talks about how his mom left him and that’s the reason he has trust issues. like, holy shit, of course you’d have trust issues and if i’ll ever see one more person getting mad at keith for being angry about shiro’s disappearance, i’m throwing hands. both his parents apparently didn’t give a damn about him and shiro was the only person he had, he was and is his only family so of course keith was angry. and in this last part of his vlog we saw how vulnerable he really is, he opened up so much i was surprised because keith is usually a very reserved person when it comes to his feelings, so i think that we saw more character development in those three minutes than in the whole show and it’s important! 

so if you think that it was a waste of time and they’re “shoving keith down your throat” (i saw someone saying that here on tumblr) then i hope you’ll choke on him, because honestly? keith is one of the more interesting characters in the show both because of his backstory and behavior/development. 

so do i think that the other characters deserve more screentime too? of course! matt fucking holt is my fave character so you don’t get to talk to me about too little screentime. but do i think that they should stop giving us more keith content and that it’s okay to insult keith because of the amount of time he’s getting? well, let me tell you that this is bullshit.
