and that's why they lost the war


When I thought Madi was gone. I saw–for the first time I saw the world through your eyes. A world in which there is nothing left to lose. I felt the need to make sense of the loss. To impart meaning to it…whatever the cost. To exalt her memory with battles and victories. But beneath all of that, I recognized the other thing, hiding in the spaces. The ones whose shape you first showed me. And when asked, it was honest about the role it wanted to play. It was rage. And it wanted to see the world burn.

Humans are weird: Laziness

I’m loving the ‘humans are weird/spaceorcs/space austrailians’ etc. As I read all these, I sit in an uncomfterble position, and I’m too lazy to change into a comfterble position, way too much effort. Anyone else? Just me?

Assuming that the aliens arent lazy and quite logical and wouldnt put up with hours of a low huming sound or the echo of a dripping tap. They would get up and turn the light off.

“Finally! Ri'kni can you turn that damn light off?” Human Elle lies still in her bed, head buried beneath the covers.

Alien Ri'kni finds this behaviour odd, if Human Elle wanted to sleep comfterbly why not just turn the light off? Confused, they turn the light off and instantly seeiig the relief of Human Elle, the from the spacehall dimly lighting the room.

“Ah, thats better.”

“Human Elle, if I may. Why not just get up and turn the light off if it was bothering you?”

“I’m too comfortable here, I don’t want to get up besides I lost my nerf gun. Maybe I’m just too lazy.”

Lazy. This word is new to Alien Ri'kni. Ri'kni was well aware what a nerf gun was, for the humans would have harmless wars aboard the ship. Ri'kni doesn’t wish to disturb the human when they’re trying to achieve a form of stasis, which they call sleep. But Ri'kni wants to know.

“What is lazy?”

“Well,” she thinks about her answer for a moment before concluding in her head. “Its what you just saw. Say if something were to catch on fire in here, not enough to cause alarm or harm to anything around it. Would I get up and put it out? No, I cant bebothered.” She says this so casually.

“I dont understand. If there is a fire in your room you wouldnt put it out!?”

“Not if I had to get up”

Horrified at her response Alien Ri'kni, leaves thinking deeply about this new trait he’s discovered and adds this to his notes. This new trait doesnt match what they know about humans, they’re normally logical somewhat.

This may be another dangerous trait of theirs.

“Human Dean what is this, this mechanism?”

“Oh, I’ve engieneered my room to shut the door and turn the lights off all from my bunk.” Human Dean smiles widely while casually laying on his bed.

“Why?” Alien Svnok asks with a tone of confusion. “Why not just get up?”

“Must you aliens question everything we humans do?”

  • Movie!Thranduil: a racist, arrogant, selfish asshole that's so greedy that wanted to start a war for some gold, thinks that the Silvan Elves are 'lower' than him, is incoherent from a movie to another (in DoS wanted to close his realm to everyone, in BotFA started personally a war ... WTF?), needs the Redeeming Light(TM) of Ta*uriel for seeing the Truth(TM), is basically the Evil Step-mother of Ta/uriel without any reason, even if he lost his Saint Wife(TM), he seems not to care too much for the safety of everyone, seems almost capable to commit a murder without problem;
  • Book!Thranduil: he said that 'Long I will tarry, ere I begin this war for gold', is wiser than Bard and Thorin, respected so much the culture of the Silvan elves that he and his father Oropher had adopted it, feared the power of Sauron because he was in the Last Alliance, and he had lost his father and the half of his army in that war, helped the people of Esgaroth after the destruction of their city, tried to be diplomatic with Thorin, acted in a gentle manner with Bilbo, and he and Celeborn after the War of the Ring reconciled and created a new realm.
Hurt to Heal (Loki x Goddess!Reader)

A/n: hey peeps! Got another interesting Request that i fell in love with! Let’s imagine this taking place in Jotunheim like in Thor. Hope you lords enjoy!!!

Request: @maroonracoonlagoon said:  Could you write a mini fic of Loki x Goddess!Reader where reader is the goddess of life and destruction (can destroy anything they please, but can also heal/repair anything. Only downside is the healing process hurts 2x as much as the original injury) Where during a battle, Loki loses an arm and Reader feels really bad about it but heals/regenerates his arm. Oki thx m8

“Listen brother! We can not be the reason to start a war!” Loki proclaimed. You nodded your head but the others didn’t agree with his opinion.

“They’ve already started it Loki, our job is to end it. Now… WHO WANTS TO SAVE ASGARD?” Thor asked raising his hammer in the air and waving it like a baton. Loki and you looked at each other in disapproval but ended up following them. As we all rode our horses over the bridge, we came to a stop in front of Heimdall.

“Thor! I can not let you pass without All Fathers permission!” You all looked at each other then Thor spoke up once again.

“I will soon be the righteous king of Asgard. If you let us pass, I will offer you a wish.” Heimdall thought for a second before he walked up the steps towards the centre.

“If anything goes wrong, you shall be the one to take responsibility!” As he said those words, he inserted his sword and turned it. In a matter of seconds, you all landed in a icy blue realm.

“Jotunheim.” Loki gasped at the sight of the deserted place, or as you all thought it was.

“So this is where the King lost his eyes!” Fandral said in aw.

“Well, he did put an end to the war but here we are, trying to break the peace between both realms.” You mumbled.

“Thor Odinson! Why are you stepping feet onto my land?” You all turned into different directions, looking for the man behind the voice.

So there is this movie called “The Other Guys”. 


 The correspondence between Megatronus and Orion Pax consisted of the two meeting in primarily public venues. When Orion Pax offered that they would be able to speak more openly at his own apartment, away form prying optics and audios, Megatronus did not decline.

Megatron(us): *standing beside Orion as he keys in the apartment door’s code* …People would be unnerved at first, but the Functionist- enabled by the Senate- have created the conditions that have given rise to this culture of suspicion… Hmm… So, are you going to prove to me the existence of this conjux you keep dragging on about?

Orion: *smiling* Absolutely. She should be here. 

Orion: *opens door* Ariel, we’re here. 

Megatron(us): *walks in behind Orion* *first thing his optics arrive to is the pink femme standing not a pace behind Orion, starring back at him with her own blue optics wide open*

Orion: Megatronus, this is Ariel, my conjux. 

Megatron(us): *looking Ariel up and down* Who? No, Orion, who is this?

Ariel: *stepped forward and holds out hand* Hello, Megatronus. I’m glad to finally meet you. 

Megatron(us): *shakes Ariel’s much smaller hand gently* Well, I’m certainly glad to meet you, too…. But really, Orion, who is this?

Orion: *laughing*

Hey look at Alfor's suit in that Father's Day tweet...he has shoulder pads and stomach armour and a lot more than the current paladins have. My theory is that there was a huge war before ("dark history of the paladins"?) and they lost most of the armour and that's why they have the current minimalist version. We know that's possible because in the beginning of S1, allura said the black Bayard was missing. Tldr; haggar's got a bunch of blue/red/green/yellow shoulder pads in her closet

now i’m imagining a war similar to the time war in doctor who dang me

edit: you know what else would be cool though? if the armors changed with the time passing, like all alone. or that an armor like that was some sort of upgrade, like magical girls get lol

Have you ever tried to unsheath your claws? You might not have them, but maybe you still have a little stub and thats why your hands still function instead of behave as if you were declawed.

[Chaz]: Sorry to disappoint, anon. I have absolutely tried doing this before, and it’s the same result every time, just… nothin’. I can’t explain it, mom… probably could-

[Maakinen]: Honestly, I’m as lost as you are, dear. It was an unforeseen consequence of that medical intervention. I know the steps I’d need to take to reproduce it, but, perhaps unsurprisingly, very few charr parents-to-be would trust me to deliver their cub, and even if I did, I’ve promised not to use that technique again because the last thing I need is angry charr parents asking me why their cub doesn’t have claws. I’m fortunate that Chaz’s parents were forgiving and understanding of the situation.

[Chaz]: …Yeah. Whatever way of it, it really hasn’t bothered me, save for being a tad clumsy now and again. That and, y’know, having to answer questions about it all the time.

anonymous asked:

Gendry being playful around Arya is so touching considering he's such a serious person to begin with, but she brought that side out of him. Especially when we see him again through Brienne's eyes, he's so angry because he likely feels guilty about Arya.

we see a lot of sides to gendry when he’s around arya but his laughs and smiles definitely stand out when you compare it to ned describing him as being “sullen” and how full of rage/grief he was around brienne. gendry really enjoys arya’s company and she makes him happy. she also makes him mad but thats any well developed relationship lol. and he has a similar effect on her. the reason i love that “she was much the same at winterfell” quote is because arya actually gets to be herself with gendry. she doesn’t have to be arry or a ransom or a faceless servant. she doesn’t have to be a solider either. she can be a little girl again who wrestles and plays and walks around counting tree stumps. thats a big deal to me. the fact that gendry *sees* arya stark when everyone thought she was dead or lost. its a powerful thing. arya and gendry against the world tbh. the importance of identity is as integral to this ship as it is arya’s arc. she recognizes that he’s someone too and thats why they’re such kindred spirits. their relationship is built on trust and friendship and playfulness and childish innocence. its touching to find that in the middle of a war story. 

anonymous asked:

Unpopular opinion about Captive Prince - it made no sense for Pacat to turn the death of Laurent's mother into the event that started the war in KR. If Hennike was such an important factor, why isn't she mentioned in the first two books? And why would Laurent be so fixated on Auguste? (He ignores his father because his father had no use for him.) It was a really weak attempt to make women a more significant force in the story, IMO.

hmm, thats an interesting thought bc it actually made sense to me? like, when she died the kingdom was weakened bc they lost their queen, and then their alliance with kemt was gone, and akielos being a war hungry country used that time to strike bc the kingdom was vulnerable and lacked alliances. pacat doesnt really discuss things that aren’t in the books bc she likes to leave those things up to us, so i guess she wanted us to hc hennike and laurent’s relationship however we wanted. i personally think they were close but others might think she was just an average mother figure and nothing more. and i mean, even if I’m right and they WERE close, its pretty clear that there was no one that came even close to auguste in laurent’s eyes, so he wouldn’t really fixate on anyone else being that auguste was his everything, and his death was pretty much the catalyst of well,,, everything 

Angels Will Fall (w/ princessnoxfleuret)


“So I’ll come by and see you again
I’ll be such a very good friend
Have mercy on my soul
I will never let you know
Where my mind has been
Angels never came down

There’s no one here they want to hang around
But if they knew
If they knew you at all
Then one by one the angels
Angels would fall”

Angels wore black and bore black wings, that was his reality. He had always had a small chuckle at humanity’s attempt to depict what they didn’t know or understand. They were imaginative creatures that way.

And thats why he cared so much for them.

Noctis Lucis Caelum was an Angel of Death, and a Comforter Angel at that and head of his division. A prized rank earned by hard work and the fact that he had a 100% guidance rate and had never let a ‘client’ become an earth bound ghost.

He was the one who found a client’s long lost relatives, that held their hand as they gasped their last breaths. It wasn’t a glamorous calling like some other Angels had as he didn’t fight in Angel wars, or cause horrendous accidents or natural disasters that called many humans to heaven. More often then not he was the only creature there for a client as their bodies failed them and no other human cared. He took corporeal form to hold their hands, or if they were too scared of him he’d stay hidden and use his wings to shelter them. He’d become beloved animals

Some Angels mocked him for being meek and kind. Centuries of work had left him quiet and sullen, only able to express compassion and care when he was on earth. And other Angels were jealous of his rank and stature.

That day, everything happened in a blur. There was a pain to the back of his head, a throbbing persistent pain, the world was black, and he struggled to keep his eyes open. But finally he pried his lids wide,

He was on earth. That much was apparent. And he was corporeal. He shuddered trying to turn himself back into his spirit form and failed. No what if someone saw him? What if someone touched him?

He tried to move but pain followed. He rolled over and looked at his torso which was bare, no vestments. And there was a gaping wound in his belly.

Why wasn’t he healing?

He tried to move his arm to see if maybe he could heal himself but doing so brought more pain and he cried out loud.

What was happening to him?

The belly wound- something had stolen his grace… he was… human?

I just don’t get it… 

LIke, I’m not saying this show its perfect because nothing is, but I don’t get ton of things about the people’s reactions sometimes.

They seem to suffer more than enjoy it, and I don’t mean the suffering we have for the crying n’ feels, but because they really sound like they hate the show. 

Ok don’t get me wrong, again, I understand where the complains are coming… some of the time, but isn’t this like… too much? Again, I understand it and such… its just that..

Why are we getting so harsh on SU, again?

Yes, Pearl has more episodes than the other gems, why is suddenly everyone pointing this shit out? I’ve knew it since season 1, why nobody fucking cared about it at season 1? I pointed it out a lot on those times, people that TODAY I see complaining about this told me to shut up. 

Yeah, what happened with Bismuth its awful, but Bismuth its not cracked, SHE’S BUBBLED, and remember when Centipeedle got bubbled in season one and got back on season -motherfucking- THREE and made a good point and had an incredibly great episode? what is telling us that Bismuth its NOT coming back? This show never leaves points behind, it has a great continuity if you notice, they are not going to forget about Bismuth. As someone who has been living in a country filled with wars for more than 60+ years, I KNOW that sometimes killing the enemies its not the answer, and even tho I love Bismuth, Rebecca is clearly sending a message of peace in other ways, something that I, again, respect, because its the only way my country can be free.

And what about Jasper? She is corrupted now, probably going to work as a motivation for one of the crystal gems.

Really, what the fuck happened? I hate sounding so mad about this, but this is the first (or the one that has developed it the best) cartoon with:

  • wlw relationships that are not confirmed off-canon.
  • Good metaphors/Lessons about abuse, self-love, mental illnesses, etc.
  • Good amount of different body-shapes and POC characters
  • Well use of questioning morality
  • Coping with the lost of a loved one
  • The horrors of war and how their consequences stay even when the war its over
  • Redemption its a strong point and its made amazingly well (Peridot’s arc felt natural, thats super hard to do) 
  • The writing of a child (you know how hard it is to make a kid that feels HUMAN and natural? well, Steven its the best kid I’ve seen in the story of animation, the most natural one, thats hard af) 

Why are we being so harsh on it? because its NOT perfect? nothing is… I really don’t know why people is starting to push further and further the show into looking bad, its almost like they don’t enjoy looking at it, and they just do it for a kind of job?.

Again, the show is flawed, but personally its getting tiring and out of hand that sometimes we even try to show an UNFINISHED ARC as a bad point, its not finished, jesus….
