and then jumps to him joining the military

Rogue One AU || Leverage

The Team stages elaborate cons for clients victimized by Imperial Corporations. They are led by the Mastermind, Cassian Andor, a former investigator for the Alliance Company who has a troubled past due to the acts he committed in the name of one of the executives, Draven. 

Jyn ‘Hallik’ is a Grifter that has multiple aliases like Liana, Kastrel, and Nari. She has been on the run for years for unknown reasons to the Team. And on one of her cons before she joined the crew, she had stolen from Draven which is how she and Cassian met.

Bodhi Rook is the Hacker for the Team who was a former Imperial employee. After being tortured for information years back, Bodhi can only cope with the trauma through electronics and computers. Despite the nerves, he is the best in the business.

Kay is the Team’s expert Thief, who has been Cassian’s longest companion. He has no issues with the crazier stunts committed in their cons and doesn’t mind staying in the air vents. But his poor social skills tend to show while pickpocketing. 

Baze and Chirrut come in pair as the Hitters of the Team, who, before they joined the crew, were ex-military vigilantes protecting their local neighborhoods. Chirrut is the one who follows his guts more and KNOWS when the team is in trouble, so he frequently jumps into the danger. Baze quickly follows Chirrut to get him and EVERYONE ELSE out of that danger. He constantly jokes about being too old to babysit.

The members of the Team all have baggage, but, despite it, or because of it, become a family serving out Robin Hood Style Justice

requested by @blackaquokat, also kudos to @blackaquokat for summaries and character choice.

ps- the reason Jyn’s last name is Hallik in this is because in the show her counterpart’s name is not known, so I decided to play with that.

Sergeant John Forge:

Sergeant John Forge (Service Number 63492-94758-JF) was a veteran non-commissioned officer and an infantryman in the UNSC Marine Corps. Although he excelled in tactics and combat, his repeated acts of insubordination caused him to receive three demotions, with infractions such as fighting with an officer, (which resulted in 2.4 years in jail time), and striking a superior officer. He sported an ace of spades playing card attached to his left shoulder pauldron, and also carried a combat knife he named “Lucy.”

Early Life:

Born on Earth on May 29, 2501, Forge’s life revolved around the military. His family lineage had been a part of the military for generations, dating as far back as World War II. He joined boot camp at the minimum age 16, where his superiors remarked there was “something special” about him. Forge and his wife fathered a daughter, Lucy Orion “Rion” Forge, around 2525. Although John’s marriage was strained even before the birth of his child, he and Rion would always remain on good terms.

Forge worked a stint as a military policeman on Mars and did some “grunt work” on Epsilon Eridani IV during the Insurrection. However, he hated policing and jumped at the chance to be assigned to Fort Marshall.

Forge was arrested twice during his service. His first arrest was for directly disobeying orders and disorderly conduct. Even though his actions saved four members of his squad, Forge spent a total of 2.4 years in prison, an infraction that removed any chance of moving through Officer Candidate School or even progressing beyond the rank of sergeant.

His second arrest occurred around August 17, 2530. Forge’s then-five-year-old daughter, Rion, and her aunt Jillian were waiting for John in a bar when Lieutenant Prosser started making sexual advances on Jillian. When the lieutenant made a suggestive comment toward Rion, Jillian struck Prosser, prompting him to shove her against a wall. At this point John arrived and confronted the lieutenant. They engaged in a fist fight, with charges brought upon the sergeant. However, Rion proclaimed her father as a hero and all charges were dropped, where he was later reassigned to the UNSC Spirit of Fire by Admiral Preston Cole himself. Spirit of Fire’s commanding officer, Captain James Cutter, came to trust Forge so thoroughly that he granted the sergeant a degree of authority significantly exceeding that afforded by his rank.

Reclamation of Harvest:

In February 2531, Spirit of Fire was sent to assist the crippled Marathon-class heavy cruiser UNSC Prophecy in the Epsilon Indi system. Captain Cutter ordered the Prophecy’s navigation database and survivors to be recovered, sending Forge and multiple Marine fireteams on board the vessel while Spirit of Fire engaged several Covenant ships. Forge’s Pelican dropship was hit by enemy fire and crash landed on the Prophecy’s hull. Forge and Team Lima breached and boarded the Prophecy, whereupon they were attacked by Kig-Yar Rangers. Forge’s ankle was broken during the engagement. With the guidance of Serina, Spirit of Fire’s AI, he was able to find the a terminal to recover the ship’s black box and wipe its navigation core while the rest of Team Lima rescued the ship’s survivors. Serina warned Forge that the Prophecy’s AI may “act peculiar” due to high radiation levels.

Upon scanning his retina to gain access to the terminal, Forge was halted by the ship’s AI, FitzGibbon, who explained he could not allow him to enter due to the latter’s poor service record. Forge reminded the AI of the Cole Protocol, stating that he was aboard the vessel to ensure the protocol would not to be violated. FitzGibbon then reluctantly allowed Forge into the terminal room and enabled radiation repair routines. Forge purged the navigation database and returned to the Pelicans as FitzGibbon activated Prophecy’s self-destruct sequence, which soon scuttled the ship. After the Marines and Forge escaped with the survivors, they were taken to Spirit of Fire’s medical bay. When Forge asked how the survivors were doing, Serina told him that they would all soon die due to all of them suffering extensive radiation poisoning. Forge was angered by the AI’s indifference towards the survivors and comforted them in their final moments, believing that even if they would soon be dead, they were still people and so deserved better.

Forge was sent to the surface of Harvest on his first mission to scout out Covenant activity in the northern polar region of the planet. He drove through Quadrant 4 to find a battalion of Sangheili that an AV-14 Hornet squadron had spotted earlier. Reporting the Covenant activity to his superiors, as to how the aliens had found a a Forerunner structure buried within the ice, he returned to the overrun UNSC Alpha Base, and helped organize scattered Marine units along the way. Forge and his rag-tag assault force were able to retake Alpha Base a short-time later. Before the Relic was demolished by the Covenant, the Forerunner site is captured by Forge and Marine forces. Professor Ellen Anders was then sent to the planet’s surface to personally investigate the relic, and Forge reluctantly escorted her inside.[14] He was present when Anders activated a Forerunner holographic projection of a star map, and protected her when they were ambushed by a team of Sangheili warriors. Spirit of Fire then evacuated most of her ground troops, including Forge, and set course for Arcadia, a UNSC colony planet to which the star map had pointed.[12]

Arcadia:

After arriving at Arcadia, Forge was among the first UNSC troops to set foot in the besieged capital of Pirth City, where he aided the evacuation of civilians aboard three cargo vessels. When the civilian transports took off, Forge and his men abandoned the besieged city and fell back to the outskirts. There, he took part in the destruction of a nearby Covenant base, assisted by Spartan teams Red and Omega. He also participated in the battle to destroy a Covenant energy dome which was protecting an unfinished Type-29 Scarab. After a short battle, the UNSC forces succeeded in destroying the Scarab. While he and Anders were surveying the area, Arbiter Ripa ‘Moramee ambushed them. Forge was swiftly defeated and was about to be killed, until Anders stopped the Arbiter by agreeing to go with him without incident. After Spartan Red Team’s unsuccessful attempt to stop the Arbiter from escaping, they immediately retreated back to the Spirit of Fire. Spirit of Fire then made a slipspace jump in pursuit of 'Moramee’s retreating vessel.

Shield world:

After Spartan Jerome-092 recommended destroying 'Moramee’s ship and killing Anders rather than let classified information fall into Covenant hands, Forge confronted the Spartan. The altercation resulted in a broken chair, a seal malfunction on a bulkhead and a stern interruption from Serina. From then on, Forge and Jerome always ate together in the mess hall.

Upon arriving at a mysterious planet, Forge was sent to the planet’s surface, where he and his forces encountered the Flood. It was soon discovered that the world was not a planet at all, but a Forerunner shield world. Immediately following this revelation, Forge was put in charge of the evacuation of the Spirit’s ground troops and the decontamination of Flood from the ship’s dorsal surface. By chance, he came upon the recently escaped Ellen Anders in the shield world’s interior and escorted her back to the Spirit of Fire.

Forge was then put in charge of the strike team that would deliver the Spirit’s Shaw-Fujikawa Translight Engine to the Apex Site; the SFTE had been rigged as a bomb to destroy the shield world and deny its armada of Forerunner dreadnoughts to the Covenant. Atop the Apex, he once again faced 'Moramee in battle, while the Spartans of Red Team eliminated the Arbiter’s comrades. Although Forge was nearly killed, he overcame his foe at the last minute by tricking the Arbiter to look him in the eye, and then stabbing him in the neck with his prized combat knife, “Lucy”. He then picked up the Arbiter’s energy sword and drove it through the Sangheili’s stomach, killing him. As Alice-130 rolled the Arbiter’s corpse off the platform, Jerome examined the engine, realizing that it had been damaged in the fight.

When it became clear that the damaged slipspace drive would have to be detonated manually, Forge realized that the Spartans would play a far greater role in the war than he ever could. He volunteered to take the FTL drive into the shield world’s artificial star. Forge gave the Spirit’s crew the time they needed to escape the hollow planet and then detonated the drive, sacrificing his own life, but dealing the Covenant a massive blow in the process.

Legacy:

Spirit of Fire was declared lost with all hands on February 10, 2534, though many bereaved family members refused to accept the official statement. On his deathbed, Forge’s father encouraged Rion to keep up the search for the truth regarding the ship’s disappearance. Rion spent the ensuing years seeking closure for her father’s disappearance, eventually becoming a scavenger. In January 2557, she followed a series of leads that pointed to the log buoy Spirit of Fire had dropped at Arcadia, which in turn took her to the remains of Shield World 0459. There she encountered what remained of the former caretaker of the facility, a fragmentary ancilla she later dubbed “Little Bit”, which provided her the trajectory Spirit of Fire had followed when escaping the shield world.

Road To The Zone: Judas

Name: Rico “Judas” Delgado
Faction: Mercenary
Role: Soldier of fortune

Backstory:
“You would almost believe that Delgado’s last name was a twisted joke played on him by his parents, due to his small build and below average height.
This handicap however didn’t stop Rico from trying to prove himself better than the rest of his age group by jumping rooftops and getting in fights.
When he became older he was known around town as a womanizer with a cocky crooked smile that never left his face.

He eventually joined the army, his mindset locked on becoming part of the special forces.
Though his self-absorbed nature did not go well with his military comrades, leading to Rico striking his commanding officer in a heated argument.
After serving his sentence he stepped out into the baking sun, unsure what the next step would be.
He made up his answer not long after, leaving his hometown for Ukraine.

A thief. A thug. A lover.
A comrade who’d rather sleep with the enemy than fight them.
Taking the name Judas and fighting, not for business, but for his own enjoyment.
An adrenaline junkie till the end.”

Road to The Zone is a series of drawings and stories inspired by the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. universe.

BEHOLD, THE VOLTRON AU NOBODY ASKED FOR

So, Halo has been a big part of my life and i’ve always adored the series and it’s lore, and i realized there are some parallels between Voltron and Halo?

both take place in space, both have to do with fighting alien bad guys, both have to do with wearing kick ass armor and having awesome futuristic weapons, so yeah.Here’s some things I thought of for this AU:

i.

they are the brightest colours he has ever seen.

He has your gun, you know. The Black Widow, model X. You threw it to him before jumping into that damned beam, saying that he’ll have better use of it. It’s nice, but it isn’t really his thing (a thought he always kept to himself; the rifle was like a child to you). But yet, there it lays on his lap, like one of your bad jokes, a small breath, don’t forget me.

But how could he possibly forget you?

Romano finding out his s/o joined the military?

South Italy/Lovino Vargas: Lovino would be highly upset at your actions, especially if they’d come out of nowhere. He would confront you directly on the matter, telling you his honest opinion and trying to mask his worry, saying he just didn’t think it was a good idea for you to put yourself willingly in danger. He would ask if you were just trying to emasculate him, seeing it as a sign that you don’t trust him enough to protect you, and would work himself up further by jumping to conclusions. The situation wouldn’t be remedied unless you told him that his thoughts were getting a bit too wild for reality, reassuring him that you loved him and that your joining the military didn’t directly have anything to do with him.

academyofmuses  asked:

Eren was on gaurd duty as part of his training to join the military to fight titans. He almost had a heart attack when he saw a brown haired teen being chased by a Titan. What was he doing outside of the walls? Eren ran and jumped off the wall killing the titan and grabbing up the other teen. He brought him and started the other brown haired boy in the face before shouting at him. "WHAT THE HELL WHERE YOU DOING? YOU KNOW YOU COULD HAVE DIED OUT THERE! I COULD HAVE DIED SAVING YOU!"

Makoto flinched tears falling down his face. “I… I was trying to find my little brother and sister…they’re twins…i’m sorry… please don’t yell…” He said as more tears fell down his face.

"You are not Asexual, just A-social"

physics-pony submitted: 

Ever since I was a kid I know I was different. I liked classes that no one else liked, I was always more prone to anger. The things other kids talked about, sports, shows or toys, I didn’t care for.

But as my parents told me to do, I tried to fit in…
It was like that even after I was diagnosed with NVLD (non-verbal learning disorder) at age of 8.

NVLD is kind of poorly named, since the verbal learning is what they good at (I’ll get to why I say they later).
Basically it’s a neurological disorder, just like the dyslexia and dysgraphia I have, but unlike them this affects more then your grades. People with NVLD have problem reading and using non-verbal communication. Anything from body language to tunes of speech.
Would you want to be a friend with the kid that start yelling for no reason? Or that doesn’t get it when you tell a sarcastic joke? I can’t blame them for not being my friends…

I did knew at the time I was diagnosed with NVLD, my parents hadn’t told me. So I tried to fit in, but I couldn’t… I was 10 when my best (and only real) friend moved away, and it hunk a bit after that I stopped trying.
I was on my own from there until about a year ago, but my coming out story was in the time I was alone.

Many people in the LGBTIAQ+ community say they came out to there parents last. Well I didn’t really had other options.
I was 16 and, like every teenager, confused. I didn’t tried to fit in, but I had nothing better to do in class then listening. And what would people talk about? “She is so hot.” “I have a crush on him.” And so on and so forth.
Something happened in the news and I didn’t had anyone but Wikipedia to ask. So I looked up “homosexuality”, and as I read I see a table. The table is known as the Kinsly (I hope I got that right) scale. From 0 to 6, straight to gay, and then the gray box, labeled X.
After reading about it I couldn’t denied benign ace. Not that anyone cared…
Few weeks later. It’s my mother and me in the car, on our way home from the train after I wasn’t home two days (where was I, irrelevant. Moving no). My mother (works at the school I was in): “Ho, and Annie (fake name) asked how are you.”
“How nice of her.”
“I think she is really in to you.”
“Mom!”
“What? I’m just saying-”
“I know what you are saying. And I am not interested, I told you hundreds times, I’m am not interested in girls.”
“Are you interested in gays?”
“No! I’m not interested in romantic relationships.”
“But you have to get married someday.”
“Well what if I don’t want to?!”
“Someday you’ll find someone who makes you feel like no other, and she’ll-”
“It want happened mom. I’m A-sexual.”
*“You are not Asexual, just A-social”*
Our conversation that day ended there as far as I’m concerned.

Let’s jump few more years, it’s 2014, I’m 19. In Israel, all capable citizens join the IDF at the age of 18. Because I was supposed to join the navy for a specific role I was 19 when I was drafted. I was supposed to go to be a technician on the land, but something went wrong and I got to the program for the sailors. I lost it, I couldn’t think I couldn’t even stand! It’s unclear right now how but I got to see a military psychologist, so before I got to see him I had some free time, and I called, who else, my mother.
She finally told me I had NVLD, so I could say it to the psychologist to get me out of the program to the program I was supposed to be in.
The moment she hanged up I googled it. First thing I see: “what is the difference between NVLD and Asperger syndrome?” I knew what Asperger is… So I decided to read it, thinking it would be shorter then just reading everything together. I was right… But when I looked at the differences. The Asperger side was closer to who I am then the NVLD.
It’s been more then a year and a half since. And I got friends who expect me as who I am now. And I learned a lot about my condition.

Yes mother, I am asexual. And I am not asocial, I’m just different, in many many ways.
So may you please (!) stop saying that?

Twelve Breads to Woo Them

for Day 1: Snow

Hi Everyone! Happy Twelve Days of Everlark Yuletide!!! This little piece is part of my Twelve Days of how Everlark met in an “In Panem AU, where they were never reaped”. I hope to post one chapter per day until Christmas. 

Thank you, Love in Panem, for hosting this event. You guys rock!

Rated: G (for now)

Beta-read by the amazing @chele20035 thank you love!  

——————————————————————————–

Day one: Snow

The woods are silent and unyielding as I walk under the bare limbs of a maple tree, the ground is hard and dry indicating winter will be harsh this year. Everything has already either died or gone into hibernation for the looks of it, but in the back of my head I can’t shake the nagging notion that all these new would-be-hunters flooding my woods have had some hand in driving away game earlier than usual.  

It started fifteen months ago, the year I turned seventeen, when President Snow was assassinated on live television in front of all of Panem.

anonymous asked:

You're getting me hooked in your rarepairs! Would you share some material on them? I'm curious about the Shisui/Kakashi and Tobirama/Kakashi (how does that even work? I need to know!)

Shisui/Kakashi…I had an idea for a canon AU where Itachi died instead of Shisui. Shisui didn’t end up killing the Uchiha, because he has his Deus Ex Dojutsu and made them all into happy little drones, but it kind of (majorly) screwed him up and because of what he did, no one remembers and so no one understands. Except that Kakashi actually sees him quietly self-destructing even while he’s trying to hide it with a smile, and - well. Obito parallels, so he steps in. Shisui is very much Not Having It at first, but it works out eventually (and ends with them adopting Naruto, bc I can fix-it fic if I want to). 

Kakashi/Tobirama would need time travel, I’ll admit. Or maybe Tobirama escaping Edo Tensai the first time Orochimaru summons him. But after I wrote them kind of interacting in I’m lost somewhere in outer space, I just want to ship them. (Also, I want to write an AU where Tobirama ends up jumping forward in time. Like, he disappears at 23 or so, so Izuna survives, Madara joins Konoha freely, maybe even becomes Nidaime Hokage or something. And then Tobirama ends up a hundred years in the future, finding out that his brother used his plans (Academy, military ranks, police force) to make the village strong, there are, like, shrines to him, etc. While Tobirama’s still stuck in the mentality of the Clan Wars and totally confused about everything. Idk, I really like the trope of broken people fixing each other, what can I say.
