You are seven years old when you first meet him.

The sky arcs above you in all its cerulean glory, and if you were to extend your hands towards the heavens, you could pluck the clouds right off the sky. That’s exactly what you do, watching in quiet awe as the white diffuses in a massless haze through your fingertips, crystallizing into tiny diamonds that soundlessly fall to the ground.

The boy stands alone by the shore, waves of transparent greens and blues rushing up just far enough to nip at his bare ankles before receding back into the ocean. He barely contrasts against the pale background, bright strands of pink hair billowing softly in the wind. The water is quiet, grounded against the horizon as it stirs lazily back and forth, and without the boy’s motionless form to focus the scenery, the salty breeze would surely have carried the white dunes across the sea to be forgotten.

There’s a bunch of stuff on my dash at the moment about people who add things to their life during lent as opposed to abstaining, and a large number of posts are making fun of it and I’m just like ????

Anyway, It’s important to remember that the purpose of Lent is not sacrifice for the sake of sacrifice. The purpose of Lent is to strengthen one’s will by way of self-denial so that we may obtain the self-control necessary for us to choose Christ over our own desires.

A person who decides to sit still and pray for 20 minutes everyday when they usually don’t, is growing in self-control just as much as the person who decides to abstain from caffeine. If you don’t believe that, I’d be inclined to think that you’ve never sat down and actually tried to pray, BECAUSE👏THAT👏IS👏HARD👏FAM.

Humans are both Body and Soul. Whatever we do to one is done to the other. Let’s all remember this, so that our Lenten exercises (whatever they may be) allow us to grow in both our physical and spiritual will; helping us to ultimately grow in love of God.

(Plus there’s just the fact that if you are honestly comparing your Lenten observance to someone else’s then you have some pride my friend how ‘bout you try and practice humility instead. Also I’m super tired of hearing “b-b-but- but the purpose of lent is to give up something and suffer and join our suffering with Christ’s Passion” like no, suffering is a natural byproduct of trying to better our ugly fallen asses and as Christians we believe that we make proper use of our suffering by joining it to Christ’s suffering on the Cross. But no one in their right mind goes out seeking suffering. Go seeking Christ and suffering will find you.)

As a dance or romantic partner for tatara, who would you prefer: chinatsu or mako?

I absolutely, 100% prefer Chinatsu. I don’t ship any of the characters romantically since they’re all kids, but I think that the relationship between Tatara and Chinatsu is so much more intense and complex than his with Mako. 

This isn’t to say that his partnership with Mako was bad–on the contrary, both of them really needed the Tenpei Cup to grow into their own partnering styles (Mako more so than Tatara). The issue is that Mako is still an incredible follower, and leagues beyond Tatara in terms of dance experience and prowess. If they had stayed together forever, Tatara probably wouldn’t have evolved well as a leader, and Mako would have been constantly dragged down but less willing to voice her thoughts.

Chinatsu, though, is such a good partner for Tatara. She’s certainly ahead of him in technique, but she also has so much to learn about being a follower. And while Tatara learns about technique and leading, Chinatsu is also experiencing a similar lesson about what it means to truly dance with another person. There’s a give-and-take to their partnership that isn’t there in Tatara and Mako’s, and that’s what makes it all the more compelling. She pokes and prods at his leading until he snaps and takes control, and that’s when she realizes that it’s not just about fixing Tatara–she has to follow and respond, too.

In the end, it boils down to how they can learn the best. With Mako, Tatara could have been a good leader but not a great one, always still caring about his partner’s comfort and wishes. With Chinatsu, the disagreements and fighting make them learn from each other at an incredibly rapid pace, and both of them will definitely become incredible as a result of partnering with each other.

*clears throat* i know that there are no current out players with boyfriends/husbands so this does not yet apply but i cannot wait for the day that WAGs become known as SOAPs (significant others and partners) because it is inclusive to everyone involved and, let’s get real here, sounds so much better than a WAGs. WAGs is a ugly word and i am putting an unofficial end to the word WAGs. this has been a psa. thank you

aallll the thoughts on heat 44v.2

and by all the thoughts I really mean it. 800 words of them, to be exact.

This is gonna sound insanely stupid but taking a shower gives me so much anxiety like I know for “most” people it’s a relaxing experience or whatever but some of my worst panic attacks have taken place while showering and today is my official shower day (sorry not sorry that I don’t do it every day lol) and all day I’ve just been dreading it but I just now remembered I bought a new Christmas scented shower gel and I am literally pumped to use it because imma smell like winter candy apple when I’m done… truly is the little things, fam.

One of the most interesting thing I think I’ve seen so far in the Voltron fandom is our interpretation of Matt. Here is this character who has had less than two minutes of screen time, yet if you ask any Voltron blogger, they could probably chug out a list of Matt headcanons off the top of their head. Some of our most popular ships, theories, headcanons, fanarts, fanfics all involve Matt, even though we know next to nothing about him. 

In fact, I think that’s the reason why the fandom enjoys producing content with Matt. We know next to nothing  about him, leaving tons and tons of room to experiment. Matt gives us the opportunity to create the type of brother we think Pidge deserves, to play with how the round characters in the show handle whatever personality we stick onto Matt. Matt truly is the fandoms playground, a character with which there are no rules.

I know that’s why I, at least, love Matt so much. Because Matt is made up almost entirely of blanks that I get to fill in, and it’s incredibly fun. So while I can’t wait to find out more about Matt in season 2, for now, I’m just loving this time of fandom experimentation, where there are a thousand different verisons of Matt, each of them unique and reflective of the individual producing the content. Matt gives fans an opportunity to project their creativity into a canon character in the Voltron universe, and I think it’s fascinating.

i literally cannot process information right now because Robin Hood knocked up the Wicked Witch of the West who will probably end up getting raised by the  Evil Queen meanwhile Will Scarlet is also the Knave of Hearts and just kind of got a blessing to date Belle by the Beast himself and we’re all wondering when Captain Hook is going to do the do with the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming
