and the writing was so good and genuinely funny

youtube

i dont normally rec things on here bc i dont know how to do that without sounding like im selling something but i’ve been really into this show lately and i havent heard anyone talk about it

it’s a comedy starring wyatt cenac about a journalist who goes to write a piece about an alien abductee support group but ends up joining them instead. it’s really genuinely funny and lighthearted enough that you can eat thru a whole season in like a day or two but it also gets pretty heartfelt at times and i love it

this is the trailer for season 1, season 2 is wrapping up rn and it just got renewed for a 3rd season so i think this is a pretty good time to jump on

From now on I want to narrate every Sherlock interview as if I'm Lemony Snicket

“If we pull this off, it’ll be television history!” Amanda said, gleefully. Amanda should not have said this, and she certainly should not have said it gleefully. What Amanda should’ve said instead is “This season includes a very talented actress who will surely impress you all.” However poor Amanda did not say this. And several months later she certainly regretted her mistake.

~

Sue’s eyes widened in shock. They did not widen in shock because Amanda had spoiled the plot of the show, or because Amanda had just hinted at what may happen in the upcoming season, but rather because Amanda had just told a massive, whopping, great big lie. And Sue was shocked.

~

“Love conquers all,” Benedict smiled sappily. Benedict did not, of course, mean “Sherlock’s romantic love of another person and their love of him conquers all their problems this season,” but rather, “In my opinion Sherlock Holmes and John Watson have been in love for over a century and I believe it is only right that they should be allowed to love each other and that I should kiss Martin.”

~

Steven hid his head in his hands. Steven did this because he thought Benedict was being cheesy and romantic, however it seemed to the audience like he did this because Ben had just given away a major point of the plot. Steven should be more careful about how his body language portrays his feelings.

~

Mark looked like he wanted to kill Benedict. This was not unusual, however. Mark always looked like he wanted to kill Benedict. And Steven. And everyone, in fact. Mark liked to think about murder.

~

“This is the best season yet,” Steven said. He was lying. I know he was lying because in reality it was filled with plot holes and glowing pictures and boys who eat out of dog bowls. But I’m not a rude person, so I left Steven to his ignorance.

~

“Who you really are, it doesn’t matter,” Mark typed. Mark should not have typed this. In fact, I wanted to hit Mark with a big stick and tell him ‘who you are REALLY matters’ but Mark would not have listened. Mark thinks he is smarter than me. He is clearly not. But who he is still matters.

~

“I’ll die if Johnlock doesn’t happen,” a TJLCer sobbed as she typed on her laptop. “RIP,” Mark replied. He did not do this to be funny. He did this because he can be a massive twat sometimes. This was one of those times. 


 ~ 


 "I don’t know, I don’t know, I’m just in it!” Martin squeaked. He was not trying to hide a secret, as many believed. Martin was just genuinely baffled by the new season. And by baffled I mean ‘had no idea what the plot was, what the point was, what his character was suppose to be doing and why he didn’t get to kiss Benedict.’

Honestly I think part of the reasons cartoons nowadays are failing is because so many focus on comedy.

Comedy isn’t bad when the jokes are actually funny and aren’t stolen from the internet.

The issue is that they take action oriented shows (Powerpuff Girls, Teen Titans) and turn them into shows that are nothing more than cash cows for the network that bank on the fame of the original while doing nothing to live up to it. A number of cartoons now fizzle out after so many seasons because they simply can’t maintain an audience. The issue is that kids grow up. Eventually the humor and stolen jokes become old to them while cartoons that should have fizzled out are kept going and out on repeat (Looking at you TTG)

“You’re dead if you aim only for kids. Adults are only kids grown up, anyway.” - Walt Disney.

I think that is a quote any cartoonist, comic maker, writer, etc. who aims or gears their works towards children should have in their notebook or animation guide. Why? Because it’s true. So many cartoons are lame because they have no growth with the audience or any appeal beyond a young audience that is subject to lose interest at the drop of a hat. For some reason, it seems like cartoon makers are afraid of making a cartoon that has dark elements to it.

I’m not saying people should make dark cartoons just for the sake of it because that’s what will appeal to kids. Rather, I’m saying there is nothing wrong with having a dark theme in your cartoon or having the characters deal with issues. It doesn’t even have to be truly dark.

For example, The Powerpuff Girls had an episode that showed the actually dangerous or downside to the girls powers when they moved out of Townsville. They had an episode that dealt with toxic relationships (the episode with Buttercup having a crush on Ace). They had an episode that dealt with insecurities on a number of occasions, etc. all while maintaining a sense of laughter and cheerfulness.

Static Shock dealt with homophobia, Racism (the episode where Static met Richie’s father) and gun violence and bullying (the episode where Jimmy was bullied and brought a gun to school with the intention of killing his bullies). They had an episode where Static had to come to terms with his mother’s death.

Captain Planet obviously dealt with pollution and environmental dangers, but also had an episode dedicated towards HIV and suicide.

Steven Universe attracts a wide range of people to the show due to the variety of issues presented in the show. Grief, LGBT issues, etc.

Gumball is a genuinely comedic show that doesn’t rely on memes and jokes stolen from the internet for the sole basis of its writing. The characters are likable and funny without having to be total douchebags to each other.

Shows that attract a wide range of viewers are good shows and they deserve the attention over some cash cow that is a hollow shell of the original.

With so many shows from the 90s getting revivals and reboots, I can only hope that they don’t fall into the shoes of PPG 2016 and TTG.

Kids deserve better than just hollow jokes and shells of the original show that they will outgrow. Kids deserve shows that actually stick with them till adulthood.

been reading a lot of klance fics lately so i thought i’d share it w you guys!! here’s 14 of them and definitely my favorites. comes with the title (duh), description, a review by yours truly, and link to the fic. the writers of said fics also have some gorg other masterpieces so be sure to check those out!

1. ) Smile for the Stars by maIikcutie

description

Though he’s been dealt many bad cards, Lance isn’t sure he can handle this one: winding up stranded, a million lightyears away from home, with only Keith to keep him company.
The universe is cruel.

review

2. ) Dirty Laundry by Gibslythe

description:

“Two whole months of free laundry in exchange for two weeks of being my fake boyfriend. Deal?”
Keith hesitated for a moment. Was this really worth it? Hardly. Lance was an asshole, and he wasn’t sure what fake dating would entail. But, free laundry was free laundry, right?
“Alright, it’s a deal.”
Or: Lance makes the mistake of telling his Mom he has a boyfriend coming home with him for Christmas. Keith makes the mistake of agreeing to be Lance’s ‘fake boyfriend’.

review:

3. ) call me, beep me by safra

description:

(00:31) Do you think she gave me the wrong number on purpose?
(00:31) Or was it a genuine mistake?
(00:32) Like maybe she writes funny and I misread it?
(00:32) Some of the numbers do look a little dodgy…
(00:33) Cause, you know, her threes couldvery easily be poorly formed eights? And maybe she writes her sevens like her ones?
(00:45) What
(00:46) The
(00:46) Fuck??
(00:47) Oh good, you are awake!
where lance messages the wrong number and things kind of snowball from there

review:

4. ) Seasons by fairietailed

description: 

“Do you think we’ll be together, still, by the time we make it home?”
Lance is quiet for a moment, thinking. Then he says, “That depends. Do you plan on going somewhere?”
Keith laughs, threading his fingers through Lance’s hair.
“No, I suppose I don’t.”

review:

their relationship is just SO PURE AND SOFT and so well written i’m in luuuv but the open ending will shatter and will most likely rip u apart

5. )  Don’t Break Connection, Baby by princedeadend

description:

Keith works part-time as a phone sex operator and receives a prank call from Lance. This does not go as planned for Lance. Thus begins the adventure of our dear sweet idiot continuing to call Keith to fuck with him (but not like fuck fuck with him…at least not yet). And y'know, eventually having legit conversations with him and getting attached and growing on Keith.
aka the phone sex operator fic no one asked for

review:

this is soooooooooo cute and adorable and wow i luv ittttt!!! made me smile so hard it hurts

6. ) He Who Fights Monsters by magisterpavus

description:

In a world where monstrous dragons terrorize humanity daily, the Garrison trains valiant Knights to slay the evil beasts and defend Earth. But when Knight cadet Lance Espinosa is kidnapped by a strange red dragon who kills its own kind, certain truths are revealed…and so are the true monsters.

review:

7. ) Bonding Time by magisterpavus

description:

“Shiro, I fucked up,” Keith blurted, wringing his hands.

“I think,” Keith whispered, “I think I accidentally roofied Lance. With my dick.”

review:

this fic got me sad and crying in the middle of the night )’: wont leave u too sad tho the ending is pretty nice

9. ) What a Healing Pod Can’t Repair by Remember_Me

description:

The compromised wormhole was ripping apart at the seams, sending everyone spiraling away in completely different directions. Lance could feel himself being pulled and bent in ways he was definitely not supposed to be.

Stitching the team back together after everyone is separated is difficult, and for one Paladin rescue wouldn’t be coming for a very long time.

review:

no words. literally no words. this was so painful and just wow the buildup will shatter u i swear )’: also poor bb lance i sob. comes with cool-looking art which makes it a whole lot better

Once upon a time, two Canadian nerds decided to start a figure skating au about their two space sons and their wonderful misfit friends. Ten pages of headcanons later we finally put electronic pen to electronic paper and created this monstrosity. This multi-chapter fic chronicles the lives of a hockey player named Keith who gets forcibly enlisted into figure skating lessons by his brother, Shiro, to “work on his footwork”. There he meets a pompous - yet talented - figure skater named Lance and gets swept away by both the sport and the skater.
Enjoy the ride because it’s only just started.

review:

12. ) I bet you look good on the dancefloor by xShieru

description:

“So like in 'Step Up’?” Allura shrugs. “Now that you put it like that - yes. I guess it’s just like in 'Step Up’.” The smile that she sends Shiro’s way - followed by a shy wave, eugh - is sickening to say the least, and Lance still doesn’t believe in dance camps.
-
Lance McClain’s dancing career begins and ends with Keith.
Keith just wants to find out what Lance’s deal is.

KLANCE FIC REC LIST #1/?

2

I know I never make original content but here we have it, a fic rec list from yours truely! I’ll say the rating and give the discription, and my opinion as well. Always check tags before reading! BTW these are not in order at all!!

_____________________

Every Colour You See

“Lance always wanted to be an artist. But after a car accident, he’s left with a rare disorder called monochromacy; making him unable to see any colour.
Keith is a rebellious foster kid with a photographic memory and a passion for drawing, making safe places in his art, pieced together through photos in his mind…”

Rating: Teen and Up, 13 Ch; 39K words, Ongoing TW: violence, panic attacks, car accidents, PTSD, check tags on work before reading.

My opinion: From whats there so far, it’s full of support for each other and full of equal panic and angst so read carefully.

_____________________

Not That Bad

“…College AU featuring coffee shops, silly rivalries, motorcycles, arcade games, friendships, and lots of warm, fluffy feelings that are both confusing and delightful all at the same time.”

Rating: Mature, 12 Ch; 68K words, complete TW: anxiety attacks

My Opinion: This whole work is amazing, it’s well written and it had motercycle Keith who doesn’t want that. Keith is shy, unrelated to Voltron, but the author made it work very well!

______________________

On Thin Ice

“…This multi-chapter fic chronicles the lives of a hockey player named Keith who gets forcibly enlisted into figure skating lessons by his brother, Shiro, to “work on his footwork”. There he meets a pompous - yet talented - figure skater named Lance and gets swept away by both the sport and the skater.” 

Rating: Mature, 9 (long) Ch; 150K words, Ongoing TW: anxiety attacks, SLOWBURN

My Opinion: I can not get enough of this fic, it has me waiting for the next update with antcipation at all times of the day, do not read if you care about social life. It’s so well written that lance feels tangible tbh. You get sassy interactions and a deep backstory that’s been yet to be released, although I have some ideas…

ALSO: Please go check out @soottea and @wardenalistair the former being an offical artist and co auther to the later, they are amazing and answer questions and are just generally lovely people! you can look through the tag OTI on my tumblr for some art!

______________________

Never Saw You Coming

“Three months in space on his own would have been fine. Three months in space with Lance McClain is a whole other fucking story.”

Rating: Mature, 1 (long) Ch; 47K words, Complete TW: anxiety attacks, Mental Torture, Slurs 

My Opinion: This fic was super sharp and harsh on Keith’s side of things, and it stays constant as you read through up until the very (very) end where everything falls into place and it all becomes soft. I love klance *swoons*

_______________________

What are you willing to do?

“They fuck in the Red Lion.”

Rating: Mature, 1 Ch;4K words, Complete 

My Opinion: It’s the discription tbh nothing aside from it, read the tags :*

Don’t Break Connection, Baby

“Keith works part-time as a phone sex operator and receives a prank call from Lance. This does not go as planned for Lance. Thus begins the adventure of our dear sweet goofball continuing to call Keith to fuck with him (but not like fuck fuck with him…at least not yet)…”

Rating: Mature, 10 Ch; 38K words, Complete no major warnings but read the tags

My Opinion: This is so good, it has more plot than I expected and it’s actually super sweet. Keith does the hair thing and Lance falls for it as much as I do.

________________________

Dirty Laundry

“Lance makes the mistake of telling his Mom he has a boyfriend coming home with him for Christmas. Keith makes the mistake of agreeing to be Lance’s ‘fake boyfriend’.” 

Rating: Mature, 9 Ch; 85K words TW: Homophobic slurs, Anxiety, Violence 

My Opinion: SO GOOD, it moves at the perfect pace and you can watch them fall in love from miles away. It is amazing and theres so many times where it hurts to continue reading but you do anyway~

KLANCE FICS REC

 So, it’s been a while since I joined the Voltron fandom (and the klance hell) so I wanted to post my favorite fics (at least some of them)!

DIRTY LAUNDRY  by Anonymous 

“Two whole months of free laundry in exchange for two weeks of being my fake boyfriend. Deal?”
Keith hesitated for a moment. Was this really worth it? Hardly. Lance was an asshole, and he wasn’t sure what fake dating would entail. But, free laundry was free laundry, right?
“Alright, it’s a deal.”

Or: Lance makes the mistake of telling his Mom he has a boyfriend coming home with him for Christmas. Keith makes the mistake of agreeing to be Lance’s ‘fake boyfriend’.

This is THE FIC. 10/10. 

DRIVE IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT by Zizzani 

The Castle of Lions is the venue for the city’s most dangerous illegal street races where drivers come to test the cut of their tires. Lance has long defended his title as champion, but when a newcomer shows up and threatens his position things take an interesting turn.

where lance messages the wrong number and things kind of snowball from there

This was my 1st klance fic, so it’s special to me :3

DRUMMER BOY by klancekorner 

Lance is 100%, without a doubt, straight. He has the perfect girlfriend and has never wanted anything more. But suddenly his world is being turned upside down by the boy playing the drums at his local bar–a boy who happens to be very good looking, very gay, and very very interested in Lance.

aka: Good-Boy Lance has a crisis when he meets Keith because he’s so damn attractive, and Keith is a little ho that is way too promiscuous and open about his sexuality. The become friends. Confusion and sexual tension ensue.

Gotta love this one. Keith is so ajdshfjshfjdghjd *-*

THE ULTIMATE WINGMAN by Luna_Vulpes 

Lance and Hunk have moved in to the new student apartments at Garrison University called The V at Garrison.

Living on their floor, they meet and befriend their neighbors: Pidge, a child prodigy in robotics. Matt, Allura, and Shiro, life time friends with the boys watching over their siblings. And Keith, the anti-social boy who hates change.

As time progresses, they all become friends and Lance finally finds someone to help him explore his bisexuality - his gay neighbor Keith.

They strike a deal = Lance helps Keith find a social life while Keith becomes Lance’s wingman, but what happens when both men realize that their deal has become more complicated than they expected.

THREAD OUR WAY THROUGH A STRING OF STARS by  steelthighsvoideyes

Lance is a humble astrophysics student trying to conduct research, which turns out to be a bit difficult to do when he finds a strange guy sitting in his customary research spot. A strange guy looking for aliens, no less.

Lance isn’t going to stand for this.

NOT THAT BAD by varelsen

“Am I really going to have to explain this to you?”
“No, I’m totally fine with you shutting up right about now.”
Hunk cups his hands around his mouth. “
You. Are crushing. On Keith.”

Or, a college AU featuring coffee shops, silly rivalries, motorcycles, arcade games, friendships, and lots of warm, fluffy feelings that are both confusing and delightful all at the same time.


That’s all for now, I may do a part two, who knows. Enjoy! 

I’m legit crying here about Damien Bloodmarch. Good god. Good GOD. I love this character. I love this writing. It’s all so genuine and sweet and funny. His entire route was sweetness and appreciation for life and self-acceptance and learning new things. I loved every second of it.

But also, but ALSO. AMANDA. AMANDAAAAA. The best daughter. The best girl. Going through shit and coming out the other side even more amazing. I love her relationship with her dad. I love how cheerful she is, I love how hard she tries, I love her finger guns, I love her penchant for wanton destruction, I love her jokes, I LOVE HER AND I AM SO PROUD OF HER. I MAY HAVE TEARED UP ABOUT DAMIEN BUT I’M STRAIGHT UP SOBBING ABOUT AMANDA.

kepzandme  asked:

when you created the universe just for some 'Clint Barton LOL' did you ever imagine LotFW would end up becoming A) so popular, and B) more about Steve having fun as a hotter blonder version of Joe Biden than about President Barton? (i am asking for a friend and for SCIENCE sam)

In defense of Uncle Joe I know people who would legit fight you on the idea that Steve is the hotter one. :D 

The great thing about Steve Rogers is that he is at once an authority figure as the representative of America, an imperial colonial military empire, and an anti-authoritarian, as someone who grew up working-class poor and is under an epic-fantasy level onus, on what might be considered a holy mission, to defend the underdog. When you take that contradiction and add in real legal, world-changing power, beyond Punching Baddies, which comes with it a whole host of diplomatic restrictions, shit gets bananas

I feel like Steve would need Nomad just to keep his sanity. The progress of politics is infinitely slower than the progress of a fistfight, so he would need to be able to remind himself he is still capable of accomplishing something.

I mean I should have expected people would really love his hijinks because we love subversion and Steve has to subvert in order to survive in this situation. What’s mostly surprising really is that I didn’t see Steve’s popularity coming. :D 

I don’t think in any other election year LotFW would have become as popular. I don’t think most people have ever so desperately needed an escapist fantasy as they did when the Republican party’s true colors began to show. We’ve had dumb, racist presidents before, but never so openly or so closely following a genuinely good person in the White House. I don’t really chalk its popularity up to my writing; it’s a moderately funny story but the reason people connect with it so heavily is that it’s a god damned break from the hellscape of our political reality. 

something i’m really enjoying about FMA:B so far:

i love how well this series balances humorous and serious moments. like, this is a big plot that has some pretty dark moments, and it doesn’t shy away from violence. but at the same time there’s always a few cometic sequences??? and they’re always genuinely funny and really add dimensions to the characters! and yet it doesn’t take away from the seriousness of the show and the plot they’re handling. the writing is just phenomenal all around and i like that they’re letting the characters have so fun too without dragging the quality down.

TBH...

it’s really funny to me (and by funny I mean horrifying) that there are people out there who genuinely believe the dove keeper is a beautiful story…. like, blatant pedophilia aside, that fic has one of the worst fucking cases of purple prose I’ve ever come across.

Alright. I decided to stop taking responses so weโ€™re onto the results now. 152 people were kind enough to fill it in for me.

Under the read more you will find all the pie charts as well as peopleโ€™s individual answers to the final question. TAKE THESE RESULTS WITH A GRAIN OF SALT.ย Some people may have given a nicer answer than what they genuinely believe in, even with the anonymity. This survey does not portray the community in an accurate light even if everyone was truthful. The sample size is simply too small.

Keith Kogane wasn’t really interested in the art of witchcraft until he found a small shop in the city - and it honestly was one of the best decisions he ever made. HERE WE GOOOOOO LADIES N GENTS

dirty laundry by Gibsylthe: 

“Two whole months of free laundry in exchange for two weeks of being my fake boyfriend. Deal?”
Keith hesitated for a moment. Was this really worth it? Hardly. Lance was an asshole, and he wasn’t sure what fake dating would entail. But, free laundry was free laundry, right?
“Alright, it’s a deal.”

i KNOW this one is super huge (and the author is taking her time updating) but it’s SO GOOD!!! The klance moments are amazing, and I love it. I love it, I love it, I love it. And the art and fanbase is amazing as well!!!

boom crash the sound of my ship by maychorian:

After a Galra attack splits Voltron, the blue lion is damaged and falls toward the jungle planet below. Shiro follows, and now he and Lance are stranded in hostile territory, fighting to survive. Lance is injured, Shiro is having flashbacks, and help is far away. And the Galra just…keep coming.

ooooh my god. oh my god. this fic kills me. A+ writing and characterization, the plot it amazing, sharpshooter Lance and Shiro is freaking lovely, and hurt/comfort?? good!!! I LOVE THIS FIC OK

of florists and tennis shoes by venpast:

‘Lance wasn’t sure if he’d imagined the brief tremble at the corner of Keith’s lips or not, that slight stutter that promised a smile. But before he could guess further, Keith gave his knee a shove and got to his feet. He reached out to him, “I’m done here, and I’ve still got some daisies to sell you.”

“Yeah,” Lance agreed, looking down at the extended palm, noting the little Saturn tattoo on the inside of Keith’s wrist where the sleeve hiked. He took the hand, “better not overprice those too, you asshole.”’

(in which lance is a broke university student trying to impress a pretty girl with flowers, but ends up falling for the florist that sells them instead.)

THIS ONE IS SO GOOD it’s klance but I love it!!!! so good!!!!!!!!!!! it’s angsty in all the right way, be warned!!!

pepsicola by stalemateBecs:

It starts like this: Lance looking up at the scoreboard only a few days into his Garrison training and muttering to himself, “What the hell kind of a name is Keith?”


Or, Keith and Lance fall in love. Eventually.
DAY 2: love // hate

Soooo good. SoooooooooooOOOO good. the klance dynamic is awesome and the writing is amazing and it’s sOOO GOOOD

trembling lips by nonna:

Lance is an emotional person who cries easily (and does the trembly-lip thing a lot) but tries to stay strong in front of the team.

OR

Five times Lance stopped himself from crying in front of his teammates, and the one time he couldn’t hold it back.

this fic. THIS FIC IS SO ANGSTY AND AMAZING BUT I LOVE IT!! It explores Lance’s thoughts and character really well :DDDD

on thin ice by Minadora:

Once upon a time, two Canadian nerds decided to start a figure skating au about their two space sons and their wonderful misfit friends. Ten pages of headcanons later we finally put electronic pen to electronic paper and created this monstrosity.
This multi-chapter fic chronicles the lives of a hockey player named Keith who gets forcibly enlisted into figure skating lessons by his brother, Shiro, “work on his footwork”. There, he meets a pompous - yet talented - figure skater named Lance and gets swept away by both the sport and the skater.

this one is sooooo cute, and i lOVE a good hockey/ice skating fic. it’s funny too and just generally awesome

the bruises and contusions will remind me what you did when you wake by asexualrey:

a series of one shots centered around the paladins and hurt/comfort

this series is amazing. it’s all comfort and hurt and it’s sooo good. warning though, people get sick and stuff so if you’re not into the whole sick/vomiting thing i wouldn’t but I!!!! love!!!!!!!!!!!!!! these!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

fuck me up by Azure_Wavelet:

Based off of this post on tumblr:

velazyraptor:

Okay but consider:
 Keith pretending to be lance’s boyfriend to ruin lance’s attempts to flirt with aliens

HAHHAHA THIS ONE IS SOOO FUNNY OMG AND CUTE AND I LOVE IT OK KLANCE IS GOOD LIFE IS GOOD

call me, beep me by safra:

(00:31) Do you think she gave me the wrong number on purpose?
(00:31) Or was it a genuine mistake?
(00:32) Like maybe she writes funny and I misread it?
(00:32) Some of the numbers do look a little dodgy…
(00:33) Cause, you know, her threes could very easily be poorly formed eights? And maybe she writes her sevens like her ones?
(00:45) What
(00:46) The
(00:46) Fuck???
(00:47) Oh good, you are awake!

where lance messages the wrong number and things kind of snowball from there

THIS ONE IS SO GOOD AND CUTE AND THERES KITTENS AND PIDGE AND HUNK ARE TEAMING UP AND ITS GREAT OK I LOVE THIS FIIIIICCCC

crossroads by manamune:

When Keith crashed his Lion into a Galra warship in order to stop it from destroying a solar system, and more importantly, his friends, he was fully prepared to die for it.

What he didn’t prepare for was to wake up in an alternate universe where he and Lance were dating.

mmmm this some goooood shit. cue confused keith and lance and cute moments and its so awkward at times but soOO GOOD

entangled by mackerelmademedoit:

When Keith found himself mentally linked to Lance of all people, he never thought that it would end in anything but irritation and misery on both sides. He certainly never imagined that it would be a useful asset in team Voltron’s fight against the Galra Empire. Now if he can just keep his feelings in check, they might actually have a chance at defeating Zarkon.

Needless to say, when he’d wished for a ‘bonding moment’ with Lance, this wasn’t exactly what he’d had in mind.

(Eventual romance and possibly mature content for later chapters).

I LOVE THE MINDMELDING STUFF OK!!! and it’s got some AMAZING art!!!!! SO GOOD!!!! and it’s just so silly and cute at times and I LOVE IT

everything’s going to be fine again by hollo: 

After a long separation the paladins are back in the castle, but a month’s long wait to be rescued, a month of isolation and seclusion, can leave it’s mark. Keith is more than happy to be back, and could possibly say the same about the fact that Lance has become much more familiar with him ever since they’d returned, but there is something stirring under the surface. Things are not what they seem, and the effects of the separation are greater than he could ever had expected…

OK SO THIS ONE IS P GORY JUST A HEADS UP, SO DONT READ IF YOU DON’T LIKE STUFF LIKE THIS, IT’S HORROR BASICALLY buttttt I love it and this is so goooood and there’s more to it, it’s a series and it’s just, so good. so good. just be careful if you don’t like gore and psychological horror

my youth is yours by MilkTeaMiku:

An unforseen blast in the middle of a battle de-ages Lance into a child for a week.

Keith does not understand babies.

THIS ONE IS SO CUTE AND I LOVE BABIES AND LANCE IS SUUUUCH A CUTE BABY OK ITS ADORABLE AND THE SECOND ONE WITH KEITH IS EVEN BETTER!!! the writing is A+++++

blueprints by UnderTheSilentStars:

“While soulmarks themselves were common, it was rare for someone to have anything other than the name of their other half…and Lance had a red paw print.”

Soulmark AU

this one is so good, the klance is amazing, the oblivious keith and lance being a dumb dumb, also, heads up this one is slightly nsfw later on?? idk man its just really good

aspen falls by spoopertrouper:

The quiet town of Aspen Falls, Maine is changed when an alien ship crash-lands in the backyard of Lance Sanchez. Inside the ship he finds the apparent last surviving member of the Galra - an alien race whose planet has been ravaged by war. The young alien (Keith) was sent to Earth to find his human mother, but was knocked off course. Together, with his friends Pidge and Hunk, Lance and Keith try to find his missing mother, all while avoiding the government scientists who seek to use Keith and his advanced technology for their own nefarious purposes.

Inspired by Twin Peaks, Stranger Things, and various 80’s/90’s movies.

THIS IS SO GOOD OK ITS SO CUTE AND I LOVED STRANGER THINGS SO

fuckign witches by MEEE:

Keith Kogane wasn’t really interested in the art of witchcraft until he found a small shop in the city - and it honestly was one of the best decisions he ever made.

hahaha self promotions butttt heeeeey

SORRY THIS TURNED INTO SORT OF A KLANCE THING BUT HERE YOU GOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! these are the ones i love love love and hope you enjoy them too!!!!!!!

LOL FUCKING BLOCK ME IF YOU WANT BUT THIS DRAMA IS SO OUT OF CONTROL BAD IM PEEING BLOOD !!!!!!!!!!! it’s so bad that it flips into funny n honestly if you genuinely think the drama is good n has good writing you’re a sinner. today’s episode was like satisfying because you finally see minhyuk n bongsoon together n you know they’ll win @ the end but also……….the scene where they finally capture kim jang hyun was such a badly written scene I almost actually soiled myself. if you haven’t watched it then don’t read but bongsoon takes a bullet from kim jang hyun as kinda bait to catch him n he shoots her in the stomach but ??????? thats so risky because what if he decided to snipe her in the fucking HEAD ??? literally what would he have lost of he decided to do that? of course I’m not saying I wanted him to do that but if you were him would you shoot a superhuman in the stomach when she is in perfect shot wide open space like…..no siree I would not. the whole walnut scene was soooooo fucking funny like shes just chucking the nuts @ him n he’s like screaming because it hurts n it was just. funny. don’t come into my inbox telling me how I’m being such a whore for complaining about the drama because if you aren’t……you have really low standards lmao

millard nullings headcanon

I have this idea/head canon for a mphfpc story or something but I’m not really good at writing and I’ve been thinking a lot about it so here goes…

  • While in America, Millard meets a peculiar who can see him.
  • They tell all the kids but him ‘cause they think it’s funny and cute how he acts thinking that he is invisible to everyone 
  • Fortunately for the both of them, he was wearing clothes when they met.
  • They’re genuinely interested in anything he has to say, whether it’s about the journals he kept back on Cairnholm or Perplexus Anomalus and his Map of Days. 
  •  Millard is excited because for once he meets someone who like history and books as much as he does. 
  • They both teach each other so many things what with all the different types of knowledge they’d acquired over the years. 
  • So many hours would be spent talking and talking. There’s so much to talk about! 
  • All the children start suggest that he should start wearing clothes all the time. 
  • Millard: “But why?! It’s not like anyone can see me” 
  • Olive: “Well you never know, someone might be able to” *looks directly at the peculiar*
  • He doesn’t listen ‘till one day even Miss P suggest that he does. So he starts getting suspicious. But he listened and now he wears clothes everywhere anyways. 
  • Millard thinks the peculiar is cute but doesn’t let them know this. Even though he loves his peculiarity, he doesn’t think they’ll actually like him in that way. 
  • What he doesn’t know is, the peculiar also think he’s cute and likes him a lot as well. 
  • One day they let the secret that they can see him slip 
  • Millard: *smiles and shows a dimple on one of his cheeks* 
  • Peculiar: “you’re so cute when you smile, you have a little dimple and everything”
  • They try to recover and say something else but he heard, everyone heard. 
  • Millard is dumbstruck so he just sits there with furrowed eyebrows and his mouth in the shape of a big O. 
  • “H-how did you? I have a dimple!? CAN YOU SEE ME?!” 
  • He’s so confused while the rest of the kids don’t know to laugh or be scared of his reaction.

     The peculiar ends up telling him about their peculiarity and how yes, they can actually see him. Millard is shocked but also excited that someone could see him, everyone else is happy too, because they have always wondered how he looked like. He’s asking them all these questions about his appearance so the peculiar (being a generally good artist) decides to sketch him. After a few hours they’re satisfied with their drawings and show it to him. At first he doesn’t react and just stares at it, taking in every detail of the drawing. “Is that really… me?” “Well I’m not the best drawer, you’re actually much cuter”.He feels a heat rise up in his cheeks and realizes he’s blushing, he’s never been complimented like that before and he’s certainly not used to it. After a while of even more questions about himself and the picture that was drawn, Millard decides to show it to the rest of the children.

    They’re all so happy and compliment him through what they see in the picture. The peculiar is very happy about their now peculiarity because before they met Millard, thought it to be pretty useless. But now they’re happy that they could meet someone like him and the rest of the kids and Miss Peregrine.

Hey so I'm new to the Shawn fandom and was wondering who to follow?

Oh god I’m gonna forget someone I’m so sure of it.

@papishawn holy shit this girl is amazing. She’s funny and smart and really down to earth. Idk she’s just amazing and she’s got some incredible writing pieces. Plus she’s Australian so go give my girl a follow.

@babyshawwn is honestly so kind. She has amazing content, her writing is amazing the sheer talent in camilla’s writing is incredible. She’s so friendly and funny and her friendship with her twinny is gonna make your day. They’re best friend goals which brings me on to…

@illuminateshawn could basically have the same description as Camilla because they’re so alike. She’s so easy to talk to to and she’s really kind and super duper smart. She’s just amazing all round.

@latteshawn my girl is so gorgeous. She makes incredible edits, and posts some damn good content. She’s so easy to talk to and get to know and she’s just a really beautiful soul.

Okay I’m just gonna list blogs because I genuinely can’t write good descriptions for people but these people are super funny every time I see them on my timeline I’m always smiling or laughing, they’re so so kind and down to earth Shawn is the luckiest kid in the world to have them, their writing, edits, photos etc are just amazing and they put so much effort into what they’re doing. Go give them a follow and like all their stuff because they’re killing it honestly.

@ihaveabadreputation @illumendes @illumninate @illumegeoff @ftsgerald @fetushawn @horny-for-shawny @nike-shawn @shawnrmendes @shawnandzoestories @saysweartogod @thugshawn @thesmutofthemendes @teen-mendes @sippingchai @ortenmendes 

So I know the Les Mis fandom loves pining Grantaire and oblivious Enjolras.

But I want a scenario where Enj knows about Grantaire’s crush on him. He doesn’t necessarily return said feelings quite as passionately but he does still like the guy well enough and finds him endearing. He is more aesthetically attracted to R than romantically. He can appreciate a good looking man when he sees one and while yes the jokes are self-deprecating some are genuinely funny.

So he gives hints about his attraction with little things such as catching the other man’s eye or smiling when he waves to him. but stresses to R that it isn’t romantic.

Sometimes you need someone who is willing to be attracted to you on the more fundamental level and is friends with you rather than a significant others.


(I May or may not be in a position similar to this right now…)
