becoming bond

I really DISLIKE the current Venom book It has a plot point where the venom symbiote is losing is mental facilities

It’s going out of its way to erase some really good storytelling and character from the Agent Venom and Space Knight series. And this really bothers me

Venom isn’t fun as just a murderous alien symbiote bonded to an oblivious-to-his-own-crimes-against-humanity guy like Brock

I at least hope Flash has a symbiote to bond and become cool allies with since then

Like one of the Hybrid ones… They’re all cool symbiotes with humanity

Be selfish in your forgiving. Forgive for...

Be selfish in your forgiving. Forgive for yourself and for the peace it will bring to your pain. Forgiveness has very little to do with the other person. Forgiveness is about your peace of mind. When you don’t forgive, you are the one who suffers. When we refuse to forgive someone, we deeply jeopardize our own well-being. When we condemn others we condemn ourselves. When we judge and agonize over another’s faults, we become attached to their imbalance and sickness. When we hold-on to someone’s imperfections we become emotionally pair-bonded to their maladies. At a deeper level, when we constantly meditate on another’s faults, it may be because we are neglecting our own unhealed wounds.

Scheme

Prompt: Combination of Jason Todd imagine where reader used to be part of the league angst maybe? And Can you please do something with Jason x reader? (They’re boyfriend and girlfriend) Specifically something really fluffy like reader and Jason are partners on patrol and they help each other out during fights. They also have witty banter and flirt while fighting. After patrol, they are going back to the batcave and it’s really cute and romantic. I don’t know. Hopefully this works. We don’t get a lot of Jason fluff.

Requested by: ANON and bitch-jerk-assbut-idigits67


    “What is your deal with her?”

    Jason can only smirk as he ignores the question … again. Some things were private, and his relationship with you was at the top of that list. “Seriously Jay, is this a Selina and Bruce type romance?”

    That made Jason frown. You weren’t casual. You were a committed and loyal person. Of course, they had no way of knowing that. All they knew about you was your mask and the fact you showed up when anyone was in trouble. Well, that and the constant flirting.

    Removing the helmet, Jason ran his fingers through his hair before facing his brothers. Dick was in full swing big brother mode. Dick had made it clear that he was tired of losing people, that had led to him being more nosy than usual lately. It had also left him sounding like a mother hen.

    The rest of the family was curious, but they weren’t going as far as to demand answers. With nothing left to do, Jason did the only thing he could; he chucked the helmet at his brother and grinned in satisfaction when he caught it; it gave him just enough time to rush forward and sweep his feet out from under him.

    Leaving him on the floor, Jason made his escape. It didn’t take long to get home. The mere fact that you were waiting for him was enough to make him hurry. Sure enough, you were there.

You were lying on the couch dressed in your favorite sleep pants, and one of Jason’s shirts. He’s still dressed in his patrol uniform when he collapses on top of you. You giggle as he steals a few kisses.

You sweep his hair behind his ear before kissing him properly. “Welcome home.”

“It’s so good to be home. My brothers are annoying.”

“Especially when I’m trying to save them.”

He laughs, “Told you so.”

He links his fingers with yours. His thumb twirls the band on your ring finger. You’d been

a part of the League when Talia had brought Jason to the compound. You’d watched him come back to life, and had been part of the force to help restrain him in the early days.

    It had become apparent rather quickly that he calmed down around you. He had allowed you near him, to help him. Your bond had become solid and concrete within a year. And Ra’s had been consumed with it. Jason was one of the best, that was clear. He was strong, and fast, and he could endure.

    And after several years of being partners on the battlefield, you became partners in life. The two of you had been faithful to Ra’s, to the League. You’d been so grateful for the gift of each other, that you hadn’t questioned him. Until he derived a plan to destroy Gotham.

    Years of memories had come flooding back to Jason. It became clear what the two of you had to do in the days that followed. Jason had fled, and you’d remained as a spy. When the time had come you had foiled the League with the help of Jason’s family.

    You’d appeared a week later, dressed in a mask, and your own costume. Playing with Jason’s family had been too good of an opportunity to pass up. So you patrolled the streets of Gotham with Jason, and when he was busy with his family you did it alone.

    From time to time, you showed up when Jason’s family needed help. You pulled them out of sticky situations, flirted with your husband, and retreated home.

    Jason’s lips on your neck draw you out of your thoughts and you giggle, “We can’t.”

    “Why not?”

    You kiss his cheek, “Because there’s a little girl in there waiting for her daddy to check the closet for monsters.”

    His brow furrows, “She’s still awake?”

    You nod, “Oh yes. She wanted to see her daddy.”

    With a smile he heaves himself off the couch and you watch him disappear into her bedroom. A moment later you turn towards the window and smile, “Took you longer than usual.”

    “Grayson kept complaining about how you’re potentially dangerous.”

    “I’m lethal.”

    Damian snorts, “To everyone but Jason and Rosie.”

    You wave him away, “Go spoil your niece squirt.”

    “Technically she’s my cousin, Aunt Y/N.”

    You roll your eyes, “Be gone brat.”

    He shrugs and walks into your daughter’s room, settling back in with your book you listen to the sound of your daughter’s giggles and smile.

Penicillin

Penicillin is a widely used antibiotic prescribed to treat staphylococci and streptococci bacterial infections. 

  • beta-lactam family 
  • Gram-positive bacteria = thick cell walls containing high levels of peptidoglycan
  • gram-negative bacteria = thinner cell walls with low levels of peptidoglycan and surrounded by a lipopolysaccharide (LPS) layer that prevents antibiotic entry 
  • penicillin is most effective against gram-positive bacteria where DD-transpeptidase activity is highest.

Examples of penicillins include:

  • amoxicillin
  • ampicillin
  • bacampicillin
  • oxacillin
  • penicillin

Mechanism(s)

  • Penicillin inhibits the bacterial enzyme transpeptidase, responsible for catalysing the final peptidoglycan crosslinking stage of bacterial cell wall synthesis.
  • Cells wall is weakened and cells swell as water enters and then burst (lysis)
  • Becomes permanently covalently bonded to the enzymes’s active site (irreversible)

Alternative theory: penicillin mimics D-Ala D-Ala

Or may act as an umbrella inhibitor

Resistance

  • production of beta-lactamase - destroys the beta-lactam ring of penicillin and makes it ineffective (eg Staphylococcus aureus - most are now resistant)
  • In response, synthetic penicillin that is resistant to beta-lactamase is in use including egdicloxacillin, oxacillin, nafcillin, and methicillin. 
  • Some is resistant to methicillin - methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).  
  • Demonstrating blanket resistance to all beta-lactam antibiotics -extremely serious health risk.

  • To Tim: What’s the difference between writing for  the comics vs the show? 
    • The comics happen so fast, write the adventure and 3 months later it comes out, and there’s no production limitation with comics, in terms of how much Voltron can be in or how many giant monsters they can plug
  • Every paladin has bonded more with their lions - where can they go from now? 
    • Tim: “Bonds can become closer” plenty more to unlock emotionally and intellectually, we’ll see who steps up
    • Bex: bond with lion like bond with people - it can deepen and develop over life, will keep going and evolving
    • As seen with Zarkon, a bond with a lion can be broken, and a bond can be damaged if you betray the lion
    • Tyler: Just cause you form a relationship doesn’t mean they show you everything right away - nuances to the relationship
  • What was fun to discover with characters 
    • Bex really likes 1st ep. Season one Pidge is all family, then she has realization that these have become her people; catapulted into community growth instead of just self growth
    • Tyler enjoyed going to new depths, not just regular scenario like school, higher stakes cause defending universe. Lots of characters (esp Hunk) were a bit of a mess in the beginning and then became more sure-footed, all paladins got that in season 2 to an extent
    • Ty’s fave character to watch was Keith, his internal struggle and the test with the BoM. Almost like watching a superhero origin story - want to see the person becoming the hero
    • “we have 5 superheroes and they’re always progressing”
  • Fave scenes: 
    • Ty: the space caterpillars, when they came out with theglowing  eyes
    • Image of Pidge smuggling some onto castle “she must’ve” “Pidge is a hoarder so-” “castle is big” 
    • Ty: another awesome moment was getting farted out of the weblum, found it hilarious
    • Tim: fun how Hunk and Coran went to get the crystal and mentioned the weblum - foreshadowing, things pay off
    • Bex: when Coran thinks he’s gonna fly the lion. Tim: it’s a suit he made, he didn’t steal Alfor’s 
  • Pidge and Hunk seem much more the ambassadors of the team - good at getting aliens to trust them
    • Ty: Hunk can trust himself in a situation, his softer side really services him like on the mermaid planet. He’s approachable and likeable and personalbe, it’s a skillset and he’s learning to embrace it 
    • Tim: Hunk is able to see multiple sides of a situation, never forgets how crazy this situation they’re in is, he’ able to put himself in other’s shoes
    • Bex: Pidge communicates with technology, needs an extra step to make that connection with people. So when she meets the Olkari it’s like “these are people I can actually communicate with

Actual--Quartermaster’s 00Q rec list:

A collection of amazing works that deserve all the praise. Warnings are added to fics with major concerning aspects, however, be prepared for canon typical violence and sexual content in pretty much every fic– I mean, this is James Bond, he’d manage to get into a knife fight even in a coffee shop AU.

Quriosity by dr_girlfriend

Words: 80495  Chapters: 33/33

Bond finds himself increasingly curious about his enigmatic Quartermaster.

“Your prior hotel is no longer secure, I will direct you to a new location. Your luggage has already been transferred. A field agent and medic from the Diréction Générale de la Sécurité d'État will be waiting at the side entrance. I have cleared them both personally.” In contrast to his crisp dry English, Q’s pronunciation of the French words was fluid and flawless, the throaty tone of the fricatives sending a surprising jolt of awareness straight to Bond’s cock — all the more remarkable given his degree of blood loss.

“You’re wasted on Q-branch, you have the voice for a phone-sex call-in line.” The words slipped out of Bond’s mouth without forethought, although he had plenty of time to think in the sudden pause that came afterward and stretched on for endless moments. Bond hadn’t realized until now how Q was always there, with an immediate reply. In all their banter Q had never before been at a loss for words. Ever.

____

I reread this fic at least once every few months, it’s that good. I have it saved in the pdfs on my phone for car rides and vacations. This fic stays so true to the characters, with everything from Q’s unceasing exasperation to Bond’s cheeky carelessness. The only bad thing I can say about it, is that it doesn’t follow my “Q is a Holmes brother” headcanon. Honestly, if you haven’t read this fic yet, it’s probably the one you’ve been looking for.

Human Error by thejabberwock

Words: 86107   Chapters: 14/14

007 is the perfect assassin, an artificial intelligence with the ability to think for itself. Human emotions were never meant to be part of its programming, and Q was never meant to be anything more than its creator.

____

Okay, this was so good, I had to contact the author (@bondsboffin) in the middle of it being written. I was going out of my mind. Bond is so complex and the style is just so intriguing. Honestly, this is the kind of fic that will make you roll on the floor in angst.

~~~

Blue-Eyed Monster by Only_1_Truth

Words: 118362   Chapters: 23/23

Yes, this version of 007 was a terrifyingly smart agent, and M wondered long and often whether it had been a good idea to promote him to the position. Usually, the title was the dangerous part - being 007 meant deadliness - but this time, M feared that a certain man with ice-blue eyes and scruffy blonde hair had dragged in more danger to the title than it had previously possessed

Enter MI6’s new Quartermaster: an unassuming, bespectacled genius with no mind for subterfuge but plenty of genius behind a dry smile. Curious 00-agents and young boffins don’t always mix in predictable ways…

____

This made me cry the first time I read it. Full of humorous chess games, dangerous double 0’s, and domestic (well, at least as close as possible to anyway) Bond. A wonderful Skyfall rewrite.

Beautiful Creatures by 1MissMolly

Words: 63151  Chapters: 30/30

“You smell good,” Q’s drunk words were slurred and raspy.

“I’ve been told.” James smiled at the young man.

“Stay here, I want to snuggle.”

“What?”

“Snuggle, be my teddy bear.”

“What!? I could blackmail you for that comment.” James joked but Q was already snoring lightly. His arms still wrapped tight around James neck. The older man gave in, convincing himself it was only because Q wanted him there. James own wishes and desires were not pushing him to lay beside Benjamin. The reason he was here, he told himself over and over again, was to protect the quartermaster. His scent and angelic face had nothing to do with it. At least that what he tried to tell himself.

Bond discovers that his quartermaster is an omega, which would be fine, except someone is murdering the omegas that work for MI6.

Very slow build of coworkers to friends to something more. Working together to fight against the monsters in the dark.

___

Warning: A/B/O fic. An extremely well done one at that. Despite the summary, Q can hold his own, which was awesome to read. A complex plot and amazing development, overall a great read.

~~~

Brevity and Opulence by loveindirtytrenchcoats

Words: 7777   Chapters: 1/1

There’s no time to grab anything to defend himself with, because the first hinge on the door snaps open with a bang, and the second follows on the next hit. The door rips backwards, thrown to the floor by the same man Q had been in the ski lift with, who smiles menacingly and draws a knife from his jacket. The Quartermaster wonders how long it will take for James to realise he’s missing.

Before the henchman even gets in his first hit, Q knows it’ll be too late.

____

Short and sweet, a fix-it fic for Spectre. The best fix-it fic I’ve read at that.

~~~

The Love Song of James Bond by Fightyourdragon

Words: 103853   Chapters: 17/17

“Knowing your history, and adding to it the fact that I am not entirely unaffected by sharing a bed with you, I think it would be pointless to pretend that we are going to able to share this house for the next two weeks without fucking over every available surface.” Q smiles at the look of shock on James’ face. Clearly he hadn’t been expecting such a direct approach and Q presses on before he has a chance to recover. “However, when it happens it will happen on my terms.”

There was definitely a significant gap between the time Bond was breaking down over M’s death in the chapel to the time a confident Bond walked into Mallory’s office to accept his newest assignment. What, or more importantly, who, put him back together again? Basically, lots of porn with plot.

____

Warning: BDSM. A majority of this fic is two idiots on an island, fucking and making friends with the old couple who own the local pub. It’s the most weirdly domestic thing I’ve ever read, and its beautiful.

~~~

Bal-Chatri by Kryptaria

Words: 46402   Chapters: 14/14

Rising through the ranks at MI6 is enough to erode anyone’s ability to trust. The agents of the Double O program all take paranoia one step further, elevating it to an art form. But everyone needs one person to trust – even James Bond. Now, Q just has to figure out how to convince him of that.

Bal-Chatri: A versatile trap used to humanely catch all types of birds, including birds of prey.

____

Warning: BDSM. Part of a three part series, and, honestly, it’s beautiful. Q is patient and kind, and together they work through Bond’s problems.

~~~

Synchronicity by stereobone

Words: 7600   Chapters: 1/1

It goes on like that for months, and then Q realizes that James Bond is “hanging out” at his flat.

____

Another short and sweet fic, and actually the softest thing I’ve ever read. James is just so gentle and Q treats him like he deserves. Good rainy day read.

~~~

Return the Conquering Hero by 1MissMolly

Words: 41596  Chapters: 14/14

Bond and Trevelyan are sent in to rescue a mysterious hacker out of a corrupt prison. They don’t know who sent them in or how to get the young man out. But the longer they stay in the prison, the more Bond becomes attracted to the young hacker.

____

Warning: major rape/non-con elements, but nothing truly horrid happens to our boys. Not the most satisfying ending but lovely nonetheless, one of those fics you wouldn’t mind a sequel to. Also, have I ever mentioned how much I love Alec Trevelyan being included? Because this pushes all those buttons.

~~~

Redamancy by opalescentgold

Words: 80627   Chapters: 7/8

If you write something on your skin, it will show up on your soulmate’s skin as well.

James doesn’t quite fall in love over physics discussions and cheeky book quotes and coding and riddles inked onto his skin, but he comes close.

And then he actually meets Q.

____

It’s not finished yet, I know. But, this fic is so good, I couldn’t put it down. I’m sure I read it in under two nights (that’s with a full time job and full time school). This fic highlights the true discrepancy in age between Bond and Q, and is a whole lot of angst at points, and it’s delightful.

Distraction by Pasteles

Words: 269   Chapters: 1/1

James Bond is an impatient bastard.

____

Putting this in here because my lovely @actual–007 wrote this for me, AND I OPENED IT WHILE I WAS AT CHURCH THANK YOU VERY MUCH. But, it’s lovely and so is she.

i know it was a dream in a time long passed but imagine if we really had gotten to see isak and vilde become closer friends, bonding over their struggles with internalized homophobia, with coming out, and also with their relationships with their moms. they would’ve have so much support to offer one another. and instead it feels like they never truly saw one another.

@kags-kun and i spent some time thinking about vegan keith

lance: wanna come over and eat what my mom made
keith: what did she make
lance: me ;3c
keith: im a vegan

Hunk: Keith can you help me with some repairs on-
Keith: I’m vegan

pidge: keith can you pass the salt
keith: i’m a vegan

keith, outside with nature: while you animal killers eat “meat” i’m going to have a healthy dinner that will keep me going *eats an entire twig*

Shiro: Keith, if I dont make it out of here, I want you to lead Voltron
Keith: I’m vegan

allura: “as the princess of altea i deMAND-”
keith: i’m vegan

Keith, living in the desert: I’m so one with nature it’s not even funny *shoves a piece of cactus down his throat*

keith: *listens to halsey and eats a leaf off a tree*

Keith: uhm, eucalyptus might be “poisonous” for you animal murderers with your polluted bodies, but my digestive system is CLEANSED and NATURAL and also koalas are like totally my spirit animal so

keith: for you MEAT LOVERS the spikes of a cactus may hurt but as a vegan i am IMMUNE to all danger a plant can have *licks a cactus*

Lance: if you love plants so much then why do you eat them?
Keith: excuse me I do not /eat/ plants, I consume them and our souls become bonded as one, giving me even more power that you meat eaters could never even dream of

keith: *lays in the sun*
hunk: hey buddy whatcha doin
keith: i’m photosynthesizing, something you MEAT LOVERS would never understand

Keith, doing yoga while taking intermittent bites of salad: I’ve achieved transcendence (just for fun imagine he’s wearing those red “are you nasty?“ booty shorts)

tasty-empath  asked:

Your Viking Hux is stunning! The details are crazy. His hair, his freckles, his eyelashes, his nose, his lips, his expression asoidjfod oh my god I am so breathless and intrigued. Could you please tell us more about your dream of that arranged marriage AU? 💖

Thank you for your kind words <33

Here are some headcanons I have for that verse, keep in mind that I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to Vikings!

Kylo and Hux’s families used to be at war, and to finally make an attempt at peace, they proposed a marriage. 

Kylo’s family won the last battle (and they consider they won the war), so it was decided that an heir from Hux’s people would be sent to live with Kylo’s as a spouse and would be offered a ruling title there in compensation. 

Jarl Brendol having been disgraced after the last battle that they lost and having children of the right age was designated as the one who had to sacrifice an heir.

Since Brendol wasn’t about to send his oldest and favorite son into enemy territory, and wasn’t going to sacrifice a daughter either, he sent the youngest, Armitage. 

As you can imagine, Armitage is far from pleased with this, he fought hard like all his siblings in the war, but he’s not surprised to be set aside like this, his father had always been a little scared of him so this was an ideal way of getting rid of him. 

So Hux is put on a boat with a few emissaries and sent to England to be married off to what’s most probably a ridiculous and cruel prince who will try to assassinate him at the first opportunity.


Kylo had been informed by his mother that he was to marry a viking heir, that it was to ensure peace, that it would make the life of their subjects a lot better, that he would learn to like it. To like him

Leia promised Kylo that he would grow to like his husband. She had seen it in a dream, they would bond and become extremely powerful together. 

On the day Hux is set to arrive, Kylo is extremely nervous. What if his husband doesn’t like him? What if he’s not physically pleasing to him? These are not thoughts a prince should have, Armitage should be honored to marry and and should kiss his feet as a sign of respect and devotion. 

Leia said that he would be kind, delicate, intelligent. Sweet. 

What he’s met with is anything but sweet. 

The man is furious, almost feral. He’s wearing a hooded cloak, heavy pelts. Only his mouth is visible and a perpetual snarl is Kylo’s first image of the person that will share the rest of his life. When addressed, he only answers with grunts, or in his native local dialect. 

A guard tries to force the Viking to bow before the royal family, and Armitage grabs a string of leather that was tied around his thigh and almost strangles him. 

Kylo’s in love, and he hasn’t even seen his face yet. 

Leia calls for everybody but the royal family to leave the room, and it seems to calm the angry viking down a little. He complies when politely asked to remove his cloak and if Kylo had been imagining what his betrothed would look like for weeks, he never expected this. The color is what strikes him first, he had imagined Hux to be a very light blonde, not, well, orange. His eyes are so very light, he’s so, so angry. 

This is going to take some time.



When Hux sees Kylo for the first time, he’s unimpressed. 

Kylo is wearing pompous robes and his boots are so shiny that he probably never set foot outside before. His face is odd, and he’s so… hairless. No beard, hair short that displays his ridiculous ears to the world. His eyes are darker than any Hux has seen before, and unreadable. His lips are red. He looks like a pampered doll.

Hux is going to break him.

For almost a year, the marriage goes unconsummated. Hux had to renounce his own faith and gods and convert to Kylo’s, he is disliked by Kylo’s people, advised to cut his hair and change his clothes to look “proper” but thankfully, Kylo is determined to let him keep as much freedom as he can. He even tries to get to learn more about Hux’s people’s traditions and customs. 

But Hux is a wild beast, not made to be chained to a throne in an old, dusty castle. So as he receives news that one of his brother has taken ill, Kylo lets him go, tells him to go to his brother, make sure he’s okay. 

Kylo’s not a fool, he knows that as soon as he lets Armitage set a foot on a boat, he’ll never see him again. 



Once he’s back home, and at his delicate brother’s bedside, Armitage realizes that Kylo allowed him to go, truly gave him back his freedom without ever expecting anything in return. 

That’s why he comes back, taking his brother with him under the guise of making him an emissary. He goes to the royal castle on his own, it’s his decision this time and he’s determined to make it work. 

He enters Kylo’s room in the early morning unannounced, and leaves a shy kiss on his lips to wake him up. 

“Sweet indeed”, said Kylo with a smile.
