Druid Shiro Theory Part 2: Shiro’s Arm

Following on from this post about how Shiro is probably a part-Altean Druid who can do magic and make wormholes, let’s talk about Shiro’s arm for a sec. Specifically: why did Haggar give him the arm, and what is it intended to do?

First up… let’s talk about Haggar. She was the one who gave Shiro his Galra arm. We know she loves combining magic and technology, as evidenced by all the robeasts. Perhaps the most dramatic example is the Komar Experiment:

It’s got that weird black smoke surrounded by the purple glow (obviously magic) and the purple lines running across the metal supports (the technology element). Here’s another, wider view of the whole rig:

And now here’s Shiro’s arm, the first time it activates:

Pretty similar, right? And a moment later, he gets that black smoke and purple glow around the hand, right before he overpowers it and then hacks up a bunch of Galra sentries.

{TBH I just wanted an excuse to include this screenshot}

Of course, the revelation that Shiro’s arm is Galra magi-tech is a surprise to precisely no one at this point, but here’s the thing: the Komar Experiment was powered by a bunch of druids. The black smoke and purple glow all came from them. What’s powering Shiro’s arm?

Now, imagine for a minute that you’re Haggar. You find out one of your captive test subjects is part-Altean and has the dormant ability to do magic. You want to turn him into a powerful magical weapon: a Druid completely under your control, trained to fight and do magic. Do you (a) sit in his cell and spend hours walking him through Sorcery 101 until he learns to control his powers, or (b) fit him with some kind of device - say, a prosthetic arm - that activates his magic for him, against his will if necessary.

Option (b) is really more Haggar’s style, right? And the Komar Experiment is proof that Haggar has zero chill and will happily rip the quintessence out of an entire planet if she wants to, because she’s the real Chaotic Evil of this show.

Now let’s take a look at this picture. This is Shiro’s hand right before he brings the arm under his control:

This looks like Shiro is about to do some druid magic. He looks like he’s about to fling some purple lightening or some of that weird black smoke - but he doesn’t. Instead, he overpowers the arm, brings it under his control, and uses it as a weapon.

So here’s an idea: what if Shiro’s arm is a mechanism that forcibly activates his Druid abilities? It would be powered by his own magic, if that were the case. And the reason why it looks like Shiro’s about to do druid magic is because… well… he is. But it’s being forced out of him, and it’s painful and harmful (like forcing the crystals out of the Balmera is painful and harmful). And now that Shiro is free of Haggar’s influence and control, he reins it in and reduces the magic to a level that doesn’t physically hurt him.

What if every time Shiro activates his Galra arm, he’s actually doing magic?

I mean… that arm LOOKS pretty magical. It has multiple functions that Shiro can apparently activate at will, and it gets that cool purple glow every time he uses it, and it leaves a trail of purple light when he wields it as a weapon.

Does that purple glow remind you of anything?

That’s Allura, right before she throws a bunch of magic back at Haggar and the Druids.

Shiro obviously isn’t consciously doing magic - but I think he might be subconsciously doing it. Just enough to make the arm do whatever he needs it to do. After he uses the arm in the Pilot, Pidge asks him: “Where did you learn to fight with that?” and Shiro says: “No idea.” He clearly knows how to use the arm, and we see him use it multiple times, but he doesn’t remember learning how to use it. His {procedural memory} is intact, but his {episodic memory} is damaged. He’s just working on instinct, intuitively channelling quintessence into the arm to power it up and make it work for him.

We’ve seen Shiro’s Galra arm do multiple cool things throughout the series, and whenever we see it, we just assume it’s the arm that’s doing it. But what if it’s not? What if it’s Shiro? The arm is just a tool - like a magic wand - that helps him activate his Druid powers, but all the functions we see are actually Shiro doing a bunch of low-level magic without fully realising what he’s doing or how he’s doing it. We’ve been crediting the arm, when we should have been crediting Shiro and his ability to manipulate quintessence.

Shiro is a Druid, and he’s been doing magic right in front of us this whole time.

  • creating a spell that does your hijab for you so you never have a bad hijab day again
  • also on quidditch match days everyone wears hijabs in their house colours and it looks incredible
  • praying in the dorm can be inconvenient because people have a habit of bursting in without knocking 
  • but then you learn about the room of requirement and it’s so perfect 
  • gryffindor muslims have a habit of sneaking to the kitchens after hours during ramadan and keep ending up in detention
  • and all the ravenclaws think that’s dumb af like ‘dude we just asked flitwick and he said it was fine just let them know where you’re going’
  • ‘nah where’s the excitement in that?’
  • ravenclaws as a whole love learning about other cultures so you organise a massive celebration for Eid and the whole house gets involved
  • the house elves make food from all the countries of the muslims involved and there’s basically just this massive party in the common room until flitwick comes in and says that he’s sorry to be a spoil sport but mcgonagall will kill him if he doesn’t break up the party
  • but he ends up joining in anyway
  • if someone asks you if your prayer mat is a flying carpet one more time you swear you might curse them

I am obviously really glad that Moonlight ended up winning Best Picture, but as an Old Hollywood fan at the same time I feel really sorry for Warren Beatty. He’s a legendary actor and director, and his directorial comeback was completely disregarded by the Academy. Even aside from that they made a point to hype up his Bonnie and Clyde reunion with Faye Dunaway, and again it was overshadowed. I’m obviously not positive but I think he read what was on the envelope and felt too embarrassed to admit that any mistake was made in front of millions of people, so he stalled until Faye Dunaway read the name. What upset me the most though was that after everyone realized that there was a mistake, no one let Warren or Faye, the PRESENTERS, read the correct name themselves. Someone from the crew of La La Land  LITERALLY SNATCHED THE CARD WITH THE CORRECT NAME FROM HIS HAND and with it took Warren’s chance to redeem himself away from him too, and I find that really upsetting. After the lack of acclaim for Rules Don’t Apply, he may never get the chance to step on that stage again, and I find it really heartbreaking that he may very well go down in history as the guy who read the wrong Best Picture winner (when technically he didn’t even read the name himself).

anonymous asked:

No need to answer if it makes you uncomfortable whatsoever but I was wondering, looking 'back' at it now - do you feel like you were actually in love with Brad or in love with the thought of him/ the ship/ etc. ?

I said this to Brad back then when we first met and I still stick to this thought 1000%, I was dating Brad for him, not for the youtube aspect, not for him helping me out, I genuinely thought he was my type and we had so much fun being around each other. When Brad told me he was releasing a long video with me in it I told him he didn’t have to credit me or actually do it but he was all in for it. I even said to Jordan that it never even crossed my mind that I would be using Brad for his fame and I didn’t do it for the public. I only shared my moments because I was happy. If Brad had wanted to keep me or our relationship private I would’ve done so, I would’ve still made my attempt to grow by myself, I don’t rely on others to do my work.

- “wE’RE BREAKING FREE”
- He just pushed mchottie right off the stage while he sung that line omg
- Don’t mess with Zen or he’ll push u off stage while singing HSM songs, howverythreatening
 
*JAEHEE
She’s president of the drama club, even if she doesn’t act in the plays, she’s the one who gets everything done and makes sure the club has enough money to run productions
- She knew from the very beginning u were gonna kiss Zen
-She’s not really hung up on it though, she knows you’re just acting, she ain’t worried
-Plus you two weren’t technically in a relationship? U acted like it but u two decided that with all the stuff you had going on, u didn’t have time for a relationship
- But she didn’t expect it to hurt so much when she actually saw you sing a duet with someone else???
-You two haven’t even kissed yet but it still feels like her heart is ripping apart
- And then Jaehee made her final decision
- Y’all wont believe what this lil lady is about to do
- sHE COMES IN SINGING DURING “STATUS QUO”
- no one really notices her at first bc she knows the dance moves very well so she blends in but then u come on stage
- JAEHEE JUST GRABS U AND KISSES YOU PASSIONATELY
- AND THEN SHE JUST WALKS OFF WHILE GLARING AT ZEN
- Why is everyone as dramatic as Zen today
- Safe to say y’all are together after that

 
*JUMIN
- You didn’t even tell him about the kiss
- you didn’t leave it out on purpose, but it’s just, everyone knows about high school musical so u assume he knew???
- He didn’t know
- he didn’t know at all
- he was definitely not prepared to watch you kiss Zen during rehearsal
- his heart literally breaks in half, he has no idea what to do
- but he knows if he lashes out it’ll just make you angry
- So he sits quietly when it’s time for the actual performance no he’s not crying, he just has allergies to zen, that’s all it is, no uR CRYING
- Except here’s the thing, Jumin was actually able to memorize all the lines in the play bc he watched your every rehearsal <3
- And boy oh boy, Jumin decides instead of sitting quietly he’s gonna do something
- No one kisses his MC in front a of a crowd of people other than him
- hE AMBUSHES ZEN BACKSTAGE
- he literally threw Elizabeth the Third at Zen’s head and then shoved zen into a closet and locked it from the outside
- Daddy can be sneaky ;;;))) (I’M SORRY)

- Everyone is so surprised to see him come out on stage???
- But y’all have to roll with it for the performance
- aND JFC JUMIN CAN ACTUALLY SING REALLY WELL???
- WHAT CAN’T THIS BOY DO
- And with the last line of “Start of Smething New” he plants a quick kiss on ur lips
- he doesn’t care if it’s not part of the script, the world needs to know that you are his
 
*SAEYOUNG
- Honestly??? You’d think Saeyoung might get jealous, with a whole spiel of “u can do better,,,, he’d make u happier than I ever could,,,” but he’s secretly begging u stay inside his head
- But nah not this time!!!
- This boy LOVES high school musical
- Like hello??? Melodramatic teens with singing mixed in??? that’s his favorite genre ever
- He goes to every single one of your rehearsals!!!! He loves you so much!!!
- But ofc, he has a little trick up his sleeve too
- When it’s time for the actress playing Sharpay to make her entrance, it’s Saeyoung in a blonde wig instead???
- With the help of Saeran, they tricked the poor actress into missing the play, don’t ask me how they just did
- anD YOU ARE LOVING IT, HIS VOICE IS BEAUTIFUL
- and hot damn, this boy can d a n c e
- ur a little turned on
- No one can bop to the top better than Saeyoung
- After the performance, you run up and kiss him!!! You both did so well!!
- Next time, you want him to play the leading role opposite of u cause he’s so great <3 sorry other dude bye
- Saeyoung totally doesn’t make eye contact with the guy who’s playing Troy Bolton while you two are kissing
- And he definitely doesn’t maintain eye contact the entire time either

 
*SAERAN
- You made sure to tell Saeran about the kiss before you even auditioned
- You didn’t want to surprise him like ya hoe ass did with jumin because u knew he’d pretty much murder whoever was going to be opposite of u
- He was weirdly okay with it??? Like he kinda brushed u off like “yeah yeah I know Saeyoung’s made me watch HSM a million times”
- And you’re so excited the day of auditions bc you’re pretty sure you’re gonna get the role! And Saeran is in the audience watching u <3
- Little did you know that Saeran is actually there to audition as well
- See, he may have seemed cool about it, but on the inside he was pretty much killing every guy in the world so there’d be no one to play the role of Troy Bolton
- bUT INSTEAD HE HAD A BETTER IDEA
- first he pretty much threatened zen into not auditioning, and then threatened zen into teaching him to get the role
- and b r u h, boy oh boy did saeran blow everyone away
- his singing wasn’t the best but his dancing and acting skills??? Off the charts amazing
- hE ACTUALLY LANDS THE ROLE??? WHAT IS THIS
- But you’re so happy!!!
- You don’t have to kiss another guy, you get to kiss Saeran! <3
- On the day of the performance, when it’s time for the kiss, he kisses you, picks u up, and carries u off stage while pretty much making out with u
- Nah this totally isn’t him making sure everyone knows that you are only his, nope, he is not that jealous, nu uh
 
*V
- He’s actually in the play too!!! This hoe ass is Ryan nO ONE CAN CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE
- And he’s super excited to be part of the play with you, even if your role isn’t opposite of his!!!
- He has tons of fun with you, all the singing and dancing, all the dumb mistakes everyone makes
- He’s so happy
- And he definitely doesn’t feel an ache in his heart every time you have to kiss “Troy Bolton”
- He knows you don’t have any feelings for the guy, and he knows you’re totally in love with him bc of the dreamy look you have on your face when you stare at him (626: mY BOYFRIEND DOES THIS LMAO IT’S SO CUTE)
- But when you and that guy pull away from that kiss, the guy shoots a smirk at V as if saying “She’s mine now”
- And jfc V is a gentle guy but there is no way in hell he’s going to let another guy think he has you
- And he knew exactly how to knock the guy down a few pegs <3
- He lets the entire performance go by smoothly, he didn’t want to ruin your time in the spotlight, he loves you too much to do that
- B u t
- When it’s time for you and troy Bolton to do some mouth smacking
- v wALKS ON TO STAGE CALMLY, PUSHES THE GUY OFF STAGE, AND KISSES YOU
- then he takes a microphone and says “Ryan and Gabriel end up together, the end”
- AND HE TAKES YOUR HAND AND YOU TWO RUN OFF STAGE
- And ur laughing so hard bc you didn’t know V would ever do something as crazy as that???
- It was also kinda cute even if it did ruin the performance
- But ??? Everyone actually loved V’s version of HSM so much, it became the script for the rest of the performances

Jughead x Reader

Betty, Archie, Jughead and I have been best friends since we were five. They’ve been there for every important moment in my life, as I have been for them. They know all of my secrets, except for one. I’m especially close with Jughead. We’re very similar in the way we relate to the world. I could sit here all day and list all of our inside jokes. It wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I realized I was in love with him. Not even Betty knows about my feelings. Only one person does, and that’s Veronica.
It was the day before school started, and the new mystery rolled into town. I was sitting in a booth at Pops with Betty and Archie. I was just about to leave because Betty wanted to talk to Archie about her feelings. I’d put on my jacket, and was about to get up when Archie noticed the raven-haired girl walk in to the diner. She introduced herself as Veronica, and told us she had just moved here from New York. I had a feeling from that moment on that we would be friends. I was right.
———————————————————————————————————————
It was Friday night and Veronica was staying over at my house. We were sitting on my bed talking about Jughead.
“Y/N, I really think you should just tell him how you feel. I can tell by the way he looks at you that he’s totally smitten!”
“Really? I don’t think he is Veronica.”
“Oh he is, trust me.”
“I told Kevin about it too. He says the exact same as you.”
“Kevin is right, as always. You just need to be honest with Jughead and tell him how you feel. You’re perfect for eachother.”
As Veronica was talking to me I noticed Jughead in his bedroom. We’d lived opposite eachother all of our lives, and it came in handy when we needed to help eachother with homework. He was staring at me and didn’t even realise that I was looking back. Veronica noticed that I had diverted my attention to his bedroom window, and turned around. She smiled and waved at Jughead, causing him to snap out of his trance. She stood up and went over to the window, she opened it, and Jughead opened his.
“Hey Juggie!” She shouted.
“Hey new girl. How’s your sleepover? Made any popcorn and watched Mean Girls yet?”
“No actually we’ve been too busy talking about you.”
“VERONICA!” I shouted.
“What? You never would have admitted it if I didn’t help you along.”
“What’s she talking about Y/N?”
“Nothing… I just-”
“Tell him!”
“Okay, you’re going to tell me what’s going on Y/N, hang on.”
Jughead closed his window and left his bedroom. I knew immediatly that he was coming over here.
“I can’t believe you just did that Veronica.”
“You’ll thank me for it later.”
Veronica was cut off by Jughead coming in to my room. I gave him the spare key to my house a few years ago, and he’s never failed to use it when he needs to.
“I think I know what you’re going to say.” Muttered Jughead, looking at his feet.
“Trust me, you have no idea. I want to tell you but I can’t because it won’t end well and-”
Before I could say another word, Jughead cut me off by pressing his lips against mine. It was the kiss I had been waiting for since I was eleven years old. Veronica was right. He was smitten, and so was I.


This is my first Riverdale imagine! Requests are open, let me know if you want me to do another part to this. 

The Confession of a Reluctant King

I don’t know if ever truly deserved love. I think my father had a lot to do with that. I never saw him show affection to my mother, never mind myself or my brother. We were just…there; a Queen, an heir, and a spare.

I came across the story about Tyler's transplant again and I was thinking back to Mark's charity stream from last month... When Tyler said something along the lines that he knows his clock is ticking... I mean, I know no one lives forever but it made me really sad. All his inspirational late-night tweets, he always tries to make the world a better place. I feel like I'm being irrational but I can't imagine the world being a better place without him in it (in a non-creepy way).

i agree! i’m really glad that mark introduced all of us to such a sweet and humble and all around good guy that is tyler. i know it’s hard to think about all that, but don’t let it get to you. they’re gonna keep making us laugh and smile and feel loved and comforted and everything, because they love what they do just as much as we love them for it 💙

anonymous asked:

But you don't know Benedict.

Ah, now this is a topic I’ve been lucky enough to discuss with some dear mutuals over the years, so let me see if I can do an answer justice.

Of course, we can never know the man, not truly; that is only for the very lucky few that are a part of his life, his world.  But there is so much we can deduce of him, based upon his work, his words, his public deeds and behavior.  

If you look at his work alone, you see incredible natural talent that he has refined through dedication & physical and mental discipline; you see a love of the written & spoken word; and most especially you see a keen & compassionate understanding of the human condition–for how else could he bring such breathtaking truth to all of his characters?  Even the wicked ones, like Khan & Richard III–he makes us feel that even they have reasons for the things they do, often rooted in emotional/psychological pain.  Though the evil they do is no less evil, we can sympathize to some degree, with what brought them to that place.  In my lifetime I have seen no player more truly & more lovingly—in Shakespeare’s words—hold the mirror up to nature.

In interviews & public appearances, you find a humble, self-effacing man, a bright wit, & sense of humor generous enough to make himself as likely a target of jesting as anyone or anything else.  He values home, hearth, family, the environment, although he could easily give over to hedonism on his bank account. How many times do we see him wearing the same clothes, carrying that same blue water bottle on set, even brown bagging his lunches at times?Choices, I’m sure, that reflect his commitment to simplicity and to reduce his carbon footprint. Benedict’s charitable works have been well-recorded on this site, so I’m not going to research it, but when I run across a post about it, I’ll be sure to reblog for info’s sake.

I won’t speak at length about his personal relationships, except to say that’s a man who loves his wife thoroughly. It would frankly break my heart to learn he had the same feet of clay of so many other public figures & celebrities in this regard—what I see tells me he and Sophie have the real thing. And that he guards his little family’s privacy so jealously is further testament to that.

In short, (though this runs long) I trust my eyes & ears, and they tell me to trust in the public image that is clearly on view.  I see a man who gives as much positive energy to the world as he can, and embraces life with complete joie de vivre.  And as I believe in the human soul, I see a most spectacular one that shines luminously, not only enhancing his unique physical beauty, but reminding me that true good is possible in a world that is often quite selfish & mean.

I could probably go on with dozens of more examples, but let me just finish with one of my favorite photos of him, which for me reflects (I hope) a bit of what I’ve written here.

Thank you for your ask–it was a delight to answer! ❤❤❤

Imagine a dunk MC making a phone call to zen at like 2 in the morning. She's a giggly & flirty drunk. And imagine her calling him something dumb like zanky. 😂 "hellloooooo zanky, hyun, my prince, love of life- What nooooo I'm drunk."

Lol. Sometimes I wish we had more random drunk style options in MM, just to see their reactions. Sometimes I wish we could get drunk Seven and Zen someday because all the others already got drunk at least once.
 
Also I’d be understanding to that MC because I happen to have misspelled (okay, mistyped, it’s not like I get a lot of chances to SAY the name) Zen in the most atrocious ways:
Sen
Xen
Denny (autocorrect fail tbh)
… and once while jotting down notes for a fanfic I’ll never write I fucking wrote SANJI. I’m still facepalming to this day.

I just want to say, given the shit show that the comics side of Captain America has become, THANK YOU to all the fan writers who are keeping Steve Rogers heroic and pure in their fanfics, fan art, toy photography, gif sets, fan vids and every other type of fan work.

You’re all more important than ever and I hope you realize that.

A short list with a few of Sam’s most favorite things Dean has said to him:

•"I don’t care about these girls, I only have them here so I can take my mind off of you.“

•"You understand that I think about you, all the time, past and present, you’re the only one.”

•"Baby boy, you’re eyes are killing me.“

•"Did you ever think about what we’re going to do when we’re old? I think we should get married.”

•"I’m proud to have a nerdy brother, like you. Even though I tease you, wouldn’t trade you for the world, kid.“

•"I love you, Sammy.“

•"Wanna’ be your boyfriend real bad. Let’s do something dumb like- like hold hands and go to the park.”

•"I’m not sure that I care anymore if Dad finds out about us. At this point, I want everyone to know how lucky I am.“

Ok but why is no one talking about how Seth is on Instagram posting pictures of him and Triple H with emo captions. It legit seems like he’s going through a bad break up and all he can do is look up sad quotes on Google. I swear some of these captions are

“you’re not special, you’re not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You’re the same decaying organic matter as everything else”

“you know how they say you only hurt the ones you love? Well it works both ways”

“at the time, my life just seemed to complete, and maybe we have to break everything to make something better out of ourselves”

“without pain, without sacrifice we would have nothing. Like the first monkey shot into space”

He’s like a salty gf I love it

Jerome was nervous but he covered it up by killing people and putting on a show, he wanted to ask you to move in but you didn’t know that all you knew was that he was distant and you hadn’t seen him in the last few days, instead he’d come by when you were out and steal something that you remember telling him you loved. One day however you caught him and you just stood glaring and tapping your foot against the floor impatiently.

“Hey Doll.” He smiled.
“What are you doing?” You asked.
“Guess we’ll skip the pleasantries,” Jerome grumbled.
“What are you doing?” You repeated and he scratched the back of his head.
“Nothing.” He answered walking towards you.
“Don’t give me that crap!” You glared and Jerome sighed. “You’ve been taking my stuff for a week! What are you doing?”
“I have something to tell you.” His voice lost all the loud charisma that it usually carried. You frown was now there for a different reason, now the thought that he could be breaking up with you, your posture shifted and you face softened. “Well really I have to show you,” Jerome pushed his hand out towards you and you took it hesitantly as he grabbed the car keys as he leads you out of your apartment. You got into the car and he drove back to his apartment and you gasped. All the things that he had taken from your apartment were here in his, he had put them in and matched them to his style.
“Jerome, what’s this?” You asked.
“Well we’ve been together for a while and it was getting rather annoying sneaking to your place to see you.” He shrugged as you shot forward wrapping your arms around his neck. “I haven’t even asked anything yet.”
“Well, I was sure that you were breaking up with me, still not entirely sure that your not.” You shrugged.
“I’m not quite the opposite.” He whispered wrapping his arms around you. “I want you to move in with me.”
“Well, I’d love to.” You smiled.
“Thank God you don’t know how nervous that made me.” Jerome signature smile stretched across his face “Now you settle in while I find you a house warming gift.” He said kissing your temple before leaving the house “Borrowing your car!” he yelled just before the door closed.

Requests and general question!

plstskyy  asked:

i feel like while les mis aus with yuri, otabek and mila or whatever as marius, cosette and eponine were fun/torture a few weeks back whenever ppl were talking about it, we truly r sleeping on the real les mis au which for otayuri would def be exr u feel me? was that brought up?? idk. anyway... food for thought. who doesnt love an au where people die together amiright

FINALLY I VASTLY PREFER THIS OVER MARISETTE AU BC LISTEN. LISTEN.

- YURI AS ENJOLRAS, A SALTY ANGRY CAT WHOSE ONLY MISSION IS TO LEAD THE REVOLUTION
- OTABEK AS GRANTAIRE, WHO DOESNT GIVE TWO SHITS ABT THE REVOLUTION HE ONLY JOINED BC HE SAW YURIS SOLDIER EYES AND WAS ENAMORED WITH HIM EVER SINCE
- yuri isnt fond of otabek like at all he only slinks around the musain cafe quietly observing and quietly getting drunk
- begrudgingly admits that hes useful sometimes (aka when yuri takes the time to actually give him orders instead of leaving him to his devices bc beka would do anything for yuri)
- ALSO DURING THE REVOLUTION BEKA HAD EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO ESCAPE AND LIVE. BUT HE CHOSE NOT TO, BECAUSE AT THIS POINT? YURIS THE ONLY REASON WHY HE LIVES
- yuris the last one alive and being held at gunpoint and suddenly beka comes up, staring at him for a long while before going to his side
- and thats when yuri realizes, literally 5 seconds before his death, that hes in love
- so he grabs bekas hand and they entwine it just as the guns fire
