and wanted to post this one again

On Keith and leaving Allura behind

One thing I’ve always wanted to clear up is the ‘Keith is cold-hearted’ thing. I can see how the scene of him being ready to leave Allura behind might come across as such, to quote Hunk: “Keith, that’s cold-hearted even for you.” 

But that is not how things actually are. Let me explain why he acted the way he did back then, because Keith has had just as many emotions about it as everyone else. 

Keith is rational, observant and tends to state stuff exactly as it is, with all facts lied out to make sure that everyone gets the whole picture. (see: how he explained his board in s1e1, how he argues with Lance at the beginning of s1e3 etc.) He has been known to accept critique pretty well - he actively tries to work on his temper (“patience yields focus”) and accepted that Lance’s plan was better than his in s1e7. In turn, however, he expects people to treat him the same way. If there isn’t any evidence to contradict it, he takes things people tell him at face value and accepts them as facts. It is one of the reasons him and Lance clash often, Keith can be found constantly correcting Lance’s statements and Lance doesn’t appreciate that. 

This is coupled with his rational personality. I have no doubt that part of that comes from having been forced to grow up without a family and people to comfort him when he was feeling lost, he has had to deal with reality screwing him over quite a lot of times already. He is extremely cautious and protective of his friends when a possible threat appears (see: how he placed himself in front of the team when Klaizap appeared in s1e2), probably exactly because he knows that when they are gone, they are gone. That happened to his dad, that happened to Shiro. 

And now he thinks the same thing has happened to Allura.

It is not that he doesn’t want to help her - because he does. He really does, he even said so himself. (And he wasn’t lying. We all know that Keith is an absolutely horrible liar.) In his mind, there were four facts battling with one another: 1) I want to save my friend; 2) “the ship that is headed to Zarkon’s central command?” “the place that’s way too dangerous for us to attack?” (a direct quote from an exchange between Hunk and Keith from s1e10. Keith had accepted that information a fact); 3) we are fighting against an enemy we know next to nothing about; and 4) I am responsible for the entire universe and I can only protect it with Voltron, for which Allura technically isn’t essential. 

So he stands there and goes through all the facts. And he comes to the - absolutely logical - conclusion that it is too dangerous to go to Zarkon’s headquarters. He could lose even more friends. He could lose the universe’s only hope. So he does what he always does: suppress his emotions for the greater good. He did that there, he did it when he decided to give up the blade in s2e8.

But then the others turn against him. We can’t see his face when they begin to vehemently protest against his statement-

-but I have no doubt that it would be serious and reflective. The backlash would have made him reconsider the conclusion he had come to. Because that’s what he does when he faces critique: take a step back and reevaluate. Obviously, fact 2) wasn’t quite right. [Also note how open his body language is, he is more than willing to discuss this.] 

And once the execution of their plan starts, which means an actual chance for getting his friend back, he is right at the front of the group again. 

Keith isn’t cold-hearted. Not at all. Does this look like the face of a cold-hearted person to you?

Because that is the face he made when he came to the conclusion that it would be too dangerous to save Allura. He is not happy about it. He genuinely believed that she was already lost and they were about to condemn the universe for a suicide rescue mission. If there is anything he can do to save his friends, he will do it. Like, seriously - he had never seen Zarkon before that episode. For all he knew, Zarkon could be 5ft tall, wield magic and be immortal. But as soon as he saw a normal-sized Galra in armor, Zarkon suddenly became less of an abstract concept and more of something that he has an actual fighting chance against. Look at how his attitude towards him changed in season 2, at the end of it he volunteered to infiltrate Zarkon’s base on his own!  

(Also. He was the one that asked Allura if she was sure that she wanted to come with them: “I’m sorry, princess, did you say ‘we’?!” in s1e10. He was worried for her. There is no way he didn’t want her back.)

Keith constantly watches out for the greater good. It’s what he told Pidge when she wanted to leave to go look for her family - “everyone in the universe has families!” - and what he did when he gave up finding out about his past in the Trials of Marmora. He pushes his own emotions down because he genuinely believes one person’s life and/or comfort isn’t worth putting the entire universe at risk. And that does not equal being cold-hearted.

tl;dr: Keith has had perfectly valid reasons why he hesitated to go on the rescue mission. He wanted her back just as much as everyone else. He is not a cold-hearted asshole.

Music Series: Jealous by Nick Jonas

**Warning! First Music Series story that contains smut, so don’t say you weren’t warned! (If you prefer the MS stories stay pure and sweet, let me know. This story just kind of wrote itself, so it happened. Blame Harry, not me. I was apparently channeling him. :)

I love stories about Harry being possessive of you, not liking when men flirt with you and such. I have a story I may work into blog form where Harry is absolutely adorable in his jealousy, but for now, enjoy this!

***********************

I don’t like the way he’s looking at you

I’m starting to think you want him too

Am I crazy? Have I lost ya?

Even though I know you love me, can’t help it

Harry watches as you primp in the mirror. You’re excited to be going out to a big party with him. Many times when Harry is invited to things such as these, you stay home, not wanting to interfere constantly in his career this way. You knew that most times, these events were business and publicity, a ‘girlfriend’ being in the way, and you weren’t offended by it…much.

But tonight was different. You had specifically been invited by the host to come with Harry. It had felt like ages since you’d had an occasion to glam up like this, and you were going to look hot! You dressed in one of Harry’s favorite dresses, one he bought for you while traveling, just knowing you would look beautiful in it. You layered soft curls around your head, and applied your makeup perfectly for a night out on the town. As you spritzed on some of Harry’s favorite perfume, you looked at him as he stared holes through you.

“What?” you ask, worried. “What’s wrong? Is it too much? Should I change? I was afraid I was overdoing…” you ramble as you start to take off the dress, but Harry grabs your hands and refuses to let you do it.

“Nooo,” he said, holding your hands in his as he stood behind you, kissing your neck and shoulder. “Don’t you touch a thing. You look beautiful!”

You smile and finish and soon find yourself sitting next to Harry in the back of the chauffeured car, his hand rubbing yours gently.

“You look amazing, babe,” he says, staring at you again. “Damn.”

“Not every night I get to dress up,” you smile, happy your man is pleased. “You’re looking incredibly hot yourself, you know.”

He smirks and kisses your cheek.

As Harry makes his rounds through the party, being sure to talk to those he should, and stopping to smile into camera lenses for some, he looks around and sees you talking to a small group of people, one man in particular hovering a bit too closely. Harry excuses himself and begins walking toward you as his jealousy bone itches.

I turn my chin music up and I’m puffing my chest

I’m getting red in the face, you can call me obsessed

It’s not your fault that they hover, I mean no disrespect

It’s my right to be hellish. I still get jealous

You feel Harry’s hand on your waist as he kisses your cheek and smiles at the group of people. Harry looks at the man who had been looking at you in a way that Harry did not like. He raises his eyebrows at the man, shooting him a cocky glare as he caresses your side with his hand.

“Having a good time, baby?” Harry asks you, loudly enough for the man to hear.

“A wonderful time!” you say with a giggle, your drink already affecting you slightly. You are such a light-weight with alcohol!

Harry sees how the guy is still looking at you, and unapologetically excuses the two of you to leave the group. You loop your arm around his waist and squeeze closely to him as you walk.

“Gotta keep my eye on you, kitten,” he says into your ear over the sound of the music playing throughout the large room. “Everyone in the room wants you.”

You laugh and roll your eyes. “Don’t be ridiculous,” you say as he shrugs his shoulders. “You’re the only one for me anyway.”

I wish you didn’t have to post it out

I wish you’d save a little bit just for me

Protective or possessive, yeah

Call it passive or aggressive

As the party continues, Harry is once again pulled from you as he speaks with some business contacts, and a friend in the business here and there. He watches as you talk with someone Harry recognized as a friend of yours, gleeful at seeing she was at the party, too. He smiles as he sees you grab the hand of your girlfriend and walk to the dance floor in the center of the huge room, making her dance with you to the loud music. You hold your phone out in front of the two of you, snapping photos to save as memories, and make kissy faces into the camera, then dance along, holding your friends hand, uncaring what anyone thinks. Harry thinks you’re adorable.

Soon Harry can’t help himself, making his way to the dance floor, dancing with both you and your friend, as people around the area take photos of the three of you. As the upbeat song ends, you hug your girlfriend, who wanders to find her date, and you start to walk off with Harry. But you feel Harry’s hand grab yours as a slow song begins and he pulls you tightly to his body. He smiles at you, kissing you lightly then resting his cheek against yours.

‘Cause you’re too sexy, beautiful

And everybody wants a taste

That’s why (that’s why)

I still get jealous

The feeling of being wrapped in Harry’s arms. The softness of his lips stealing kisses against your face and neck. The loving words whispered into your ear that only you can hear him say. In that moment, you are happy beyond words to be the person Harry has chosen to be with in his life. Your love for him ran deeply, and you had no hesitations in knowing he felt the same for you.

You’re the only one invited

I said there’s no one else for you

'Cause you know I get excited, yeah

When you get jealous too

As the two of you sway gently to the flowing music, you hear someone speaking next to you.

“Harry, may I get a photo with you, please?” the woman asked.

You turn and look at her, a bit unbelieving that she had ruined your beautiful moment together with Harry, then chuckling slightly at her balls, being unafraid to look at your man the way that she was.

Harry, being the kind, appreciative person that he always is, obliged the woman, giving you an apologetic look. You stepped away slightly, allowing her to get her photo with him, then waited for her to leave, but her balls were showing again as she continued talking to Harry and attempted a video with him. Harry saw the look on your face that she had such gall, and smirked slightly, teasing you by looking into the woman’s phone again and saying hi as she had requested.

As he giggles and turns again to see your reaction, his face fell slightly as he saw the man from before walk up behind you and speak into your ear, asking you to dance. You look at Harry with the same smirk he had just given you, but quickly remove it as you see his look change to one of anger.

I turn my chin music up and I’m puffing my chest

I’m getting red in the face, you can call me obsessed

It’s not your fault that they hover. I mean no disrespect

It’s my right to be hellish. I still get jealous

Harry stepped away from the woman with the phone without so much as another word and walked straight to you, putting his arm around your shoulder and leading you away from the man quickly. You feel Harry grab your hand tightly in his and weave quickly through the crowd of people, pulling you behind him. Harry drags you into a hallway and knocks on a bathroom door, then opens it swiftly, bringing you inside with him and locking the door from the other side.

Before you can say a word, Harry has you pushed up against the bathroom door, his mouth on yours, kissing you fiercely. You return his passion, biting his lip slightly, making him moan.

“You’re mine!” he says, breathing heavily through his nose, nostrils flared, teeth gnashed together. “Fuckin’ only mine!”

“Fuckin’ right I am!” you smart. “I was about to rip that woman’s head off if she touched you one more time.”

You see his lip quiver up on the corner into a smirk, then kiss you forcefully again. You feel his hands quickly reach up under your skirt, pulling your panties down, as your hands unfasten his trousers and drop them to the floor. Harry lowers his pants as you wrap your legs around him, back pressed firmly against the back of the door, and groan loudly into his mouth as he plows into you. Harry felt how wet you were for him.

“That for me?” he says. “Soaked for me, are you?” You nod and moan in confirmation as Harry hammers his cock into you. You hear the door rattle loudly with every thrust inside you…but Harry doesn’t seem to care that you could both be easily discovered, so neither do you. Kind of exciting, if you had to admit.

“My baby,” he growls against your ear, pumping his hips as his strong arms and hands keep you in perfect position. “Mine!” he says firmly, his throat clinched tightly.

“Only yours, Harry,” you assure him as you nibble his jawline.

He moans loudly as you feel him swell inside of you, causing your walls to grasp tightly around his dick. You hear his breathing become loud and raspy against your ear, feeling a slight perspiration at his temple against yours. You feel your body begin to quake against his as his cock shoots his bullet-like seed deeply, rhythmically into you. You feel the mixture of his cum and yours dripping out of you and down the insides of your thighs, as he slows his thrusts, kissing you breathlessly, the door no longer thumping under his attack.

He smiles at you, feeling proud of taking his girlfriend in the bathroom at a huge party. He kisses you again, pulling paper towels from the wall dispenser, cleaning between your legs for you, then wiping his own mess away. After a quick wash and redress, his lips find yours one more time, as he unlocks the door to open it.

“No eye contact with anyone. Straight to the car,” he says, lacing his fingers into yours as he holds tightly to your hand. “Not done with you yet.”

'Cause you’re too sexy, beautiful

And everybody wants a taste

That’s why (that’s why)

I still get jealous

I have to prep for a dentist appointment to hopefully get these GODDAMNED BRACES OFF, but let me just say before I go for awhile and can no longer monitor my “Perspective of a Journalist” post:

Again, I am not even breaking a sweat. I have not shifted differently from anywhere I was yesterday or the day before that. Rian said no unrequited, bickering love affair and I am 110% cool with that- gimme all your deep, meaningful love!!

Literally I am not even slightly changed. Who the hell expected them to be Han/Leia? That’s the one thing Ben WOULDN’T WANT. Ben watched that blow up spectacularly!! Why would he want to recreate it?? Why would Rey want the one good, all-enveloping thing in her life to be a chore?? No one wants that dynamic for them- none of us WRITE that dynamic for them. So why would SW?

Ok, so…chins up, lovelies! All is well. And with any luck, I’ll be a free woman later. :D

SYLVAN RAIN: A REALM REBORN >> HEAVENSWARD

It’s that time again. Zena had reminded me not too long ago about making another one of these posts. It was hard choosing what I wanted to use because I have over 600 screen edits and only so much space to use. >_>

Anyway, here’s my number one lady over the years. Really excited for all the looks I’ll be making for her with Stormblood! <3

I’m not cosplaying at London MCM so I think the best way to spot me will be by my bag!

it’ll have the Kylo plush and a fox plush AND a mermaid shell attached to it so I think it’ll be one of a kind! plus, I post enough selfies of myself too!

i know i come across as anxious and shy on here but if you’re a kylux fan and you’re gonna be at London MCM and you see me and my silly bag then don’t be scared to come and say hi! ♡♡♡♡♡

Hiatus doc.

Guys I got three entries in the doc so far. Two are done right the last one I got no idea what to do with and I search tumblr in every way I can imagine. So let me show you how too. (the link I used is from a random fic of mine and just to show you what I want you to do. 

Url: @thing-you-do-with-that-thing

Title: Feel Again

Link to entry: http://thing-you-do-with-that-thing.tumblr.com/post/160703052962/feel-again

Pairing: Misha x Reader

Genre (smut, fluff, angst): flangst (don’t post a million warnings - just a genre).

If you don’t fill it out right - I won’t add you. Sorry I am not trying to be a bitch but don’t have time to go through tumblr with a flashlight a few times a week. If it is not understandable just ask.

Seeing all these posts about a  possible redemption arc for Vilde like… at this point I don’t even really want her to have one? She has been a shitty friend to Sana (And sometimes to the others too, like when she called Eva a slut). I don’t think some plot twist about her playing a game all this time can justify that. If anything, it would just show she values reputation above actually being there for her friends. But idk anymore. We’ll see.

MariChat May, Day 25: Akuma Chat Noir (Talk To Me)

This one is NOT a part of my other story line, and it’s a beast.  I’ve posted the summary here, but if you want the whole thing, you can find it on my AO3.

Summary:  Adrien’s demons push him to the point of self-harm once again, and Plagg has had enough.  If Adrien won’t reach out for help, Plagg will.  What follows is both unexpected, and unexpectedly healing.

Fanfiction boost

So, the dear @consultingeastwind has had made a post about boosting new fanfic writers (for johnlock) and I just happen to be one of them. I’m fairly new to writing (again, after 11 years, detective conan anyone?) and I just wrote one johnlock and one clony (13ry) fanfic. You can find the johnlock one here: http://archiveofourown.org/works/10992411

Also, i have some great ideas for other fanfictions. (If some of you want to do a coop, just message me!)

I’m tagging some of you and please, do the same if you have any great fanfictions! I’ll read them all!

Hey hey! 

I haven’t posted in awhile and wanted to catch you up on why. I went on a trip with James for our one year Anna-versary! We went to Long Beach, WA and had a blast! We went on our first bike ride in years, watched the sunset while eating amazing desserts, discovered the Willapa wildlife refuge and of course ended it all with the traditional twist at the Dairy Maid. 

Now I’m back in action and will post art again soon! 


Check out James’ art blog!

Tbh I am a little salty/concerned about this time jump business. Because yes I want Becho, absolutely I want Becho. And I think they are setting up Becho post time jump (though Braven is also a possibility, one I can get behind). But more than I want to see Becho be canonized, I want to see Becho development. I will honestly feel cheated if they open s5 with Becho together and we get maybe a few eps of sparse domestic Becho before they return to earth and Bellamy finds out Clarke is alive, potentially setting off some love triangle drama. Because I want to see Becho growing to trust each other again. I want to see them open up to each other, emotionally and physically. I want to see their first kiss. I want to see them make love, and I want to see what it means to Echo to finally feel safe with somebody, to feel loved. That is what I want, what I need. Acknowledgement in canon is great, but that won’t give me the feels I crave with this pairing.

Basically, I just want Becho to get what Memori got. And I fear the time jump is going to steal that slow build from the narrative.

lynx replied to your post: Me: “Mum, can I still learn how to whistle?” Mum:…

Whistling is a bit hard to pick up at first, but is a whole lot of fun once you start getting the hang of it :D I know you can do it Sevi! Make Yondu proud!

Not that he would ever say so, haha. XD But I’m nothing if not stubborn, so I’m going to try learning it for sure! =D

Finally have some time to do this one. Tagged by @coolthingtrash and @envy-and-pride for this - thanks so much! I’ll tag this time around: @anime-trash-for-life (I know you’ve done this one already, but you’re always on my tag list!), @hasaji-san, @witchoftheseagrass, @soukitas, @musethe, @asparagusoup, @iqafullbuster, @katherineophe, @gintokitoki, @itomorimachi, and there were two additional people who tagged me once before, but their blogs and posts are gone. I would have tagged them, as well. I will pretty much tag anyone who has tagged me before or that I have spoken to a fair amount and do not feel as shy tagging… As always, no pressure to do this, and let me know if you don’t want to be tagged again.

RULES: Choose any three fandoms (in random order) and answer the questions. Then tag some friends.

I choose:

  • Gintama (of course)
  • Fullmetal Alchemist (Brotherhood mainly; I’m first and foremost a manga fan, so I’m always thinking of the Brotherhood anime, although the 2003 version is superb, too)
  • Code Geass (don’t judge; there will never be another Lelouch)
