able planet

It was a very unique prep process. David Ayer does more… he calls it rehearsal but it’s much more like group therapy where you sit around and everybody talks about their deepest emotional issues and your trials and tribulations.

“ - and with what information I was able to confirm, the planet should be approximately here, in this system,” Obi-Wan says, pointing out the appropriate spot on the holomap. His palms feel slightly damp, and he resists the urge to try drying them on his robes. He feels more like an initiate giving a report before the class than a Knight standing before the Council, giving his report.


That said, he turns and folds his hands together before his belt, observing the masters. With many long practiced years, he sees the tension and displeasure on their faces, and holds his breath for a no more than a second. He’d narrowed the results again and again, running the math so many times. He’d checked it against every known model of system gravitational dynamics. He’d asked Master Folen to bring the equation before her students, to have them all work it backwards and determine what could create a similar gravitational pull. By all accounts, a completely normal planet should be there, but isn’t.  If he weren’t certain of this, he would have never brought it before the Council.


“Disturbing this is,” Yoda says at last. He looks troubled. He’s looked troubled since a Sith tumbled out of thin air and through violent Force on their very doorstep. “That removed from the Archive, this information has been.”


“Disturbing, but not impossible,” Mace murmurs.


“No, not impossible at least,” another master says. Despite the number of times Obi-Wan has come before the Council with Qui-Gon, he doesn’t recognize the man. “It’s not as though the information on places beyond the Republic’s reach are safe-guarded - or indeed, any of the information in the Archive, at all.”

Smallville 10x08 / Supergirl 1x01

My dearest Kal-El, our love will always be with you. I can already see you carry within you your father’s independent spirit. – But more importantly, your mother’s never-ending bravery and her compassionate heart.– Quickly, before it’s too late. We may not have been able to save our planet…– … but we are confident you will become Earth’s greatest savior. And never doubt that, just as you are a part of us, we will always be a part of you. Farewell, my son.

\S/ 

Kara, my brave daughter. By now you have become the woman I knew you would grow up to be. And though you were sent to Earth to protect young Kal-El, your destiny is not tied to his. There is no correct path in life. You will lose your way many times. What’s important is that you find your way back to the brave girl you always were. Be wise, be strong and always be true to yourself.

Anyway, I’m really glad the Rogue One crew survived Scarif and were all able to get off planet safely.

I mean, sure. They were abandoned by the Rebellion and left to hop from planet to planet on a cargo shuttle with a busted hyperdrive.

But eventually they made their way to a little place called Bespin where they were welcomed as heroes and spent some good quality time with their gracious host, Lando Calrissian.

It sure was nice of him to do everything in his power to make sure they were all patched up and returned to full health. He even had his people repair and polish K-2SO.

And let’s not forget how he personaly gave our boy Bodhi a tour of Cloud City - Bodhi was absolutely fascinated by the technological marvel that is the whole structure.

Yes, fun times were had. Fun times indeed.

maybe we’re all here by chance, maybe there’s no grand scheme, maybe our fates aren’t planned out from the get go. maybe it all just is. maybe nothing was meant to happen. isn’t it wonderful, that despite all that, it happened anyways?

(2/jk need 1 more]) Moon River: “Moon River, wider then a mile, I’m crossing you in style some day.” Moon River is the hypothetical path to that dream life of being able 2 keep their planets legacy alive while also being w/ each other. “Oh, dream maker, you heart break” Obvs about Mon-el how he is goin 2 B able 2 let her “have it all” but heartbreaker because she is upset that he didn’t tell her he was really the Prince of Daxam. “Two drifters, off to see the world” Both were born on separate...

😭😭 oh gosh

I am torn between whether the rebel fleet showing up helped or hurt the rogue one team. on the one hand, I’m not sure what their plan was for getting off the planet with the plans, especially once the fighting on the beach had started between the rogue one commandos and the scarif troops. it’s not likely the empire would just let a random imperial shuttle leave in the middle of all that. on the other hand, before the rebel fleet showed up, the shield gate was still open. once the shield gate closed, could they have gotten off of scarif at all? and so they needed to transmit the plans, which put bodhi and chirrut in the line of fire.

of course none of this matters once tarkin shows up with the death star and decides to blow up the empire’s backup library, but I still wonder. if admiral raddus hadn’t shown up with the fleet, would they have been able to get off planet? the doylist says no, because they had to transmit the plans for the plot of episode iv, but the watsonian says they had to have some plan going in that didn’t depend on the rebel fleet showing up.

Ok seriously, people are still stanning for Bismuth?

“Oh but she wanted to just shatter the EVIL NAZI SLAVER OPPRESSORS uwu!”

Remember what she said? she said “One shot from this baby will shatter ANY GEM in the galaxy in the blink of an eye!” while grinning like Jack Nicholson, then she said HOMEWORLD GEMS won’t be able to retake this planet when they’re reduced to shards!”, and before that she described the Breaking Point as “the weapon that would’ve won the war”, so yeah even if her main targets were the Diamonds she was willing to shatter any gem that got in the way(her own allies and friends included), and she was gonna do it on a massive scale by mass-producing the Breaking Point, her ‘gamechanger’.

Rose wanted to give a chance, Bismuth wanted to kill anyone not already on her side, and the show already made it abundantly clear that Homeworld Gems are not always evil.

Lapis(who was not even a combatant)? killed.

Centipeetle(who fought for Homeworld)? killed.

Those cute amusing Rubies? killed;

Those loving adorable Amethysts? killed;

Skinny and Carnelian? killed.

Oh wait, not just killed, killed AND fragmented into irreparably insane partial consciousnesses agonizing for eternity, so it manages to be even worse than mere death.

And it’s also completely unnecessary because not only gems can be poofed and bubbled, so that they could be released and given a chance later, but it’s STATED that Rose Quartz’s healing tears were unique and that gave an overwhelming advantage to the Crystal Gems, who didn’t have to mercy kill any cracked soldier, so Bismuth’s plan was utterly needlessly cruel.

All of those Homeworld soldiers were not ‘oppressors’, they were victims of the Diamonds that didn’t know anything different, and the very point of the Crystal Gem Rebellion was to give a chance to know better, you do not liberate people from oppression by murdering them in cold blood.

And it was also counterpoductive because escalating the conflict with the Breaking Point would have resulted in Homeworld soldiers fighting back harder and making them more hostile, while should they accept to be ‘liberated’ by the very same gems that gleefully killed their sisters?

This is not about being nice to your oppressors, this is about how willing one is to engage in war crimes and atrocities in the name of an ideal, how willing one is to revel in utopian ‘everything i do is justified in the name of the cause’ mindset.

Oh right and she tried to kill Rose and Steven for refusing her genocidal plans, because ‘Nobody’s more “Crystal Gem” than SHE is’, just in case she wasn’t Gem Megatron enough already(down to the murder weapon on the right arm and getting stabbed by the youngling).

“Don’t you understand Optimus? We’d be enslaving Cybertron for the sake of our cause, to protect our allies, our friends, to free all cybertronians from the Autobot High Command’s tyranny! I didn’t want to fight you, but you left me no choice!”

whenever i watch a sci fi movie where we watch a planet get destroyed but we didn’t get to see any of the people on the planet before it was blown up, like that things star wars does

i like to pretend that the planet was blown up during like “international get-off-the-planet week” 

where everyone goes on vacation to a planet just to see more of the galaxy and learn things about other cultures

and like the government even has money set aside so that everyone who wants to see a new planet is able to 

and everyone on the planet loves this week and loves seeing new planets, so virtually no one was on the planet when it was destroyed

yes there are now a shitton of refugees and literally every physical sign that this planet existed that the people didn’t take with them has been destroyed and every species unique to that planet can now only be found in a small handful of zoos and greenhouses elsewhere in the galaxy but at least almost no people/sentient beings died

I like the ‘Gallifrey is invisible’ theory mainly because I’m having a blast imagining Narvin’s reaction when someone suggested it

Sometimes, when I think about the Universe, and Earth, I feel overwhelmed by the mere fact that humans exist. In those moments, I realize how lucky and extraordinary it is to live, and to be able to explore our planet. And oh, how incredible it is to fall in love with another human being.
Because what are the chances to exist in the same time and space as another human being, and to finally meet, and to feel so deeply connected that you can’t imagine your life without each other. How fucking mind blowing is that ?!

When I think about Lucy, and how much I miss her and wish I was with her, I feel an inexplicable pain in my entire being. I say ‘entire being’, because it is not simply affecting my body, it is invading my thoughts. I say ‘pain’, because it is something so heavy, that nothing can distract me from it ; and the reaction in my brain is similar to physical pain.
But how lucky am I to long for somebody ?! How lucky am I to know that she misses me as much as I miss her ?! 

Gabriel: Eh, it was kinda like having a heard of pet lizards. Most of ‘em sat around in the sun all day, but they were pretty cool.

Raphael: I found them quite fascinating. As beings that flourished before humans, they had quite a unique means of inhabiting the planet and to have them wiped out so suddenly…

Michael: I was not terribly engrossed with them. I had other more pressing things to worry about. They were a good starting point with the mammals that we see on the planet today.

Lucifer: Ah dinosaurs, they were certainly a lot quieter then when humans came around. It was fascinating that such beasts were able to dominate the planet with nothing but their sheer will to stay alive. Certainly fascinating.
