anti fit

anonymous asked:

Do you think that the lady galra generals +lotor might make up "Anti-Voltron"? It does fit (pink with blue, cat lady with green, lotor with black, etc.).

While I would disagree with your at-a-glance assignments mostly just because we don’t know who’s who yet (and even just going off incredibly cursory details I’d peg Pink Ears as more of a Yellow Paladin than Blue), there is something interesting.

In Voltron Force, Lotor is main antagonist, not Zarkon (who is dead)- and one of the things Lotor sends after Voltron is a series of five robeasts that combine together, called the Predator Robeast.

Cursory googling would tell me that Lotor pulled a similar stunt in Fleet Of Doom, where he combined his personal ship with four robeasts.

Basically there’s a tradition of there being “anti-Voltrons”, and with the exception of another one I didn’t mention (Voltron, The Third Dimension with “Dracotron”) Lotor is usually the person responsible.

Despite Zarkon being an ex-paladin, I can’t see him pulling off a Voltron of his own to face the original: first, he’s so fixated on reclaiming “his” Lion, and he also has basically lost any ability to play nicely with others.

But Lotor? Lotor’s a diplomat and I don’t think the fact that he and his generals form a five-person unit is any kind of a coincidence. Furthermore, Lotor seems rather dismissive of Voltron and the promo shows us ships branded in Lotor’s colors challenging the Lions directly- as in, actually going mecha-to-mecha.

I could see Lotor not only having a tentative “anti-Voltron” in terms of pitting Voltron against similar talents and a similar team, but a literal anti-Voltron.

After all, the writers did promise Lotor would have a long game plan and that he’d be up to really cool things.

It’s been 6 years and it still baffles me that OUAT had every opportunity to do something truly amazing and make the birth mom fall in love with the adoptive mom and let them be a happy family and raise their son together, but instead they just decided to go with the most boring hetero romance story that’s been told a million times before and is neither modern nor original. 

I’d like to point out that most people with “weird” genders and pronouns are young trans and non-binary people exploring their gender identity, you aren’t helping anyone by harassing them. You’re just an asshole.

I think her opinion of [Archie], as a person, doesn’t change, but her opinion of him, as a romantic figure in her life, changes. She grew up with him as a best friend, and when you grow up with a guy as a best friend when you’re a girl, it’s hard not to see yourselves becoming romantically involved. You’re like, “We’ve been best friends. Why don’t we just be together?” That’s what she thought. Maybe she wasn’t really in love with him. Maybe she just thought she was because it felt like the right thing to do. It wasn’t easy, but it was easier than you would think for her to get over the fact that they shouldn’t be together, romantically. She just had an idea in her head of the perfect couple that was Betty and Archie, but in reality, it wasn’t there and it wouldn’t have been as good.

the convention center air is stale and tepid. richard spencer approaches the podium. hundreds of white nationalists wait with bated breath to hear their leader speak. spencer clears his throat.

“there’s a snake…”

he pauses.

his followers assume that he has started off his speech with a poetic metaphor for the creeping threat of multiculturalism. there is a snake haunting america, the snake of white genocide. it was just like spencer to ironically reference Marx’s famous quote to fit an anti-Marxist agenda. how clever.

spencer looks down solemnly.

“…in my boot.”

a hush falls over the crowd. they finally got him.

the Collective has won.

Fuck bikini season. THIS is why we need to get our shit together and live healthier lives. 

I use to make excuses.
It’s my genetics. Nothing works. I tried everything.

What it really was, was bad habits.
I’m still working for my goal. I’m still working on my fitness, and eating better and smaller than I did.

I did it. I’m still doing it.
And it’s why I hate fat people who lay around all day complaining about their weight.
Then get off your ass and do something
There is no easy way out, you either want it or you don’t. Hating diets or blaming society is not a way.

A message to everyone

You do not have to look like a model. You don’t have to have a perfectly flat stomach, no cellulite, no stretch marks, you don’t have to have perfectly toned arms and legs. You don’t have to be perfect. You should simply strive to be the healthiest version of yourself. 

2009: 255 lbs and thinking my weight is genetics.

2010-2013: started running and dropped 100 pounds to 155. Completed over 8 races between 2013 and 2014

2014 to today: switched to power lifting, gained 10 pounds of muscle and competing in my first meet in June 2015

If anyone says that genetics is what defines who you are, they can’t be any further from the truth. I have hypothyroidism, too. So any excuse to not achieving your goals is a bad excuse.
