both wrong

Lance had been born blind, which of course made it hard for him, but he didn’t want to give up.

Everyone at the Garrison doubted his ability to be a pilot because of his blindness, but Lance ended up proving them wrong, even if he only got to be a cargo pilot.

Blah Blah Blah, skip forward to The Castle of Lions.

Lance only catches Allura because he could hear her tripping, and flirts with her to keep up his playboy front.

Lance asks Lance and Coran if he can feel there faces so he can think about how they look, and Allura isn’t really comfortable with this but she lets him do it anyway.

Allura actually doubts Lance’s skills as a pilot, considering he can’t see and he is always flirting, so when anything goes wrong, both her and Shiro seem to blame him.

Lance can’t change himself, can’t change the fact that he can’t see anything, and is slowly falling apart because of it.

Blue ends up becoming his ‘service dog’ and likes to do some amazing stunts while in mid battle so Shiro and Allura have to praise her Paladin because he just saved there fucking lives 💙


quality content, but one question? Do Alteans not have blindness? @ziaraderosa

Do you think that in the Familiar AU there's a in-universe Twilight expy novel series that Mabel reads and states that there are similarities to Dipper and Bill's relationship? Except one problem: They don't follow the rules of those paranormal romance and DO NOT act like those characters in those books she read among other things.

Bill’s complaint: Not a single person burns anything in this! 

Dipper’s complaint: I fell for nothing, ever, not now, not for all of eternity. Bill couldn’t ever trick me into…. that. Or anything else.

No demon ever just…. gets gooshy inside like that, when they have power over a human. No human is suddenly going to be glad about the Incredibly Gross things a demon would do, given that power. That Human was too inhuman, and uninteresting to anyone - no power, not even attractive? And that demon was as mushy as a rotten apple and as sharp as a sack full of bricks. The whole relationship was poorly written, they say. Bill says it was clearly made by someone who’d never dealt with a demon. Dipper argues that the human was just as bad at being a human, and - for once - they’d agree on all points..

The complaint that they would both have - and never say in front of the other - is how the hell did it end up like that. For things to end up even remotely close, you have to fight for it, and someone - hell, both of them - get screwed over, you have to compromise.

Both judge it 1/10, totally unrealistic. Bill burns the book, and Dipper, in a minor show of solidarity for once, roasts a couple of marshmallows over it.

(He does not give either to Bill)

15 and 20 with Dean? Thanks!

I hope this is what you wanted! I had a fever last night and earlier today, so my head is a bit loopy. I hope this still came out alright :)

15. “I’m scared.”

20. “Look at me — just breathe, okay?”

“This doesn’t look right, Dean.”

The only lamp in the room had begun to flicker. You stepped forward, causing the wood to creak beneath your boot. When the light finally gave out, the moonlight was the rooms only companion. It shone its light through the tiny window, illuminating Dean’s silhouette.

He looked back over his shoulder, his eyes locking on yours.

Somehow, you both felt it. Down to your core, you both knew something was wrong, and that you were caught right in the midst of it.

You parted your lips to speak just as Dean stepped back and grabbed your hand in his. Before you could argue, you were whisked away into a small closet. Dean carefully shut the door knob, suddenly encapsulating the both of you in complete darkness.

“I’m scared.” Slipped your lips.

Dean’s hand landed on your arm, his fingers gently holding you. He pressed his ear to the crack in the wood-panelled door. You did the same. Loud, drawn out breaths, sounded on the other side.

Someone, or rather something, was slowly making its way across the room you were just walking through.

With Dean’s chest mere inches from your own, you wanted nothing but to press yourself into him and shut your eyes. Instead, you gripped your gun tighter and listened carefully to the sounds outside the door.

“We’re gonna have to move fast.” Dean whispered, “Remember the vamp nest last week?”

“Yeah.” You nodded.

“Same plan.”

He inhaled deeply. Without thinking, you reached forward, fumbling through the dark until your hand finally landed in his.

“Look at me – just breathe, okay?” He asked of you; and you did. In the darkness of the closet, your eyes still managed to find his, and you let out a shaky breath.

He gripped your hand, giving it a tight squeeze. “All or nothing, Y/N.”

“All or nothing.” You repeated, and the door swung open. 

If you want to understand modern conservative politics and why the media and the Republican Party don’t get along I would advise you not to look at Nixon. Look at Spiro Agnew. 

In 1969 he gave a speech that ripped apart the media, saying, “In tomorrow’s edition of the Des Moines Register, you’ll be able to read a news story detailing what I said tonight. Editorial comment will be reserved for the editorial page, where it belongs. Should not the same wall of separation exist between news and comment on the nation’s networks? Now my friends, we’d never trust such power, as I’ve described, over public opinion in the hands of an elected Government. It’s time we questioned it in the hands of a small and unelected elite. The great networks have dominated America’s airwaves for decades. The people are entitled to a full accounting of their stewardship.”

I’m not saying either of them were perfect. Clearly they both did wrong, but ask yourself if they were not so critical of the media would they have been chased down so relentlessly in the following years? 

They took Agnew down. Then they took Nixon down. Do not trust the media. 

Trump is not perfect. He’s a narcissist. He’s careless. But he is not the man the media portrays him as being. They did it with Nixon and Agnew. They’re doing it again with Trump and the Republican Party today. 

Doubt what you read. Don’t be sure of what you see. Take nothing at face value.

The 9 Elements of a VILLAIN

If we’re being honest, one character is always the most fun to develop when you’re writing a new story. It must be the main character, right? The person you’re going to follow throughout the story, the one that means the most to you?

Nope. It’s the villain.

Villains are just FUN. You get to creep into the darkest corners of your writer brain and conjure up the most unashamedly detestable human being you possibly can. 

This is how we look when we begin creating a villain. 

But sometimes, it can be difficult to to make sure they’re fully believable humans. So here are the nine elements that have helped me out when developing these terrible people … 

1) Hero’s Shadow:

The relationship between the main character and the villain is the most important one in the story, because it is the source of all conflict. Without the villain causing trouble, the main character wouldn’t have the chance to be a hero. Without that trouble, the main character’s weaknesses wouldn’t be pressured, which means they couldn’t change. The villain is a condensed and magnified embodiment of the inner weakness that the hero is battling. They’re the SHADOW of hero, the example of what will happen if the main character goes down the wrong path. Both are facing the same problem in different ways. For example Darth Vader and Luke.  

2) Conflict Strategy:  

In the pursuit of stopping the hero from achieving their goal, the villain is going to attack them on 1) a personal relationship level 2) a societal level and 3) an inner level. They’re going to attack the people around them, they’re going to cause consequences for the community surrounding them, they’re going to get into their head and plague them. Because the hallmark of a villain is that they’re the person who’s perfectly suited to attack the hero’s greatest weakness. Villains should have a distinct set of tactics to destroy the main character, on at least two levels. 

3) Flaws: 

This one’s expected. Of course a villain has flaws, it’s in the job description. But flaws do not equate to ‘He kicks turtles every morning before breakfast’ or 'His favorite hobby is butterfly stomping’ or, more within the realm of possibility, “He wants to kill the hero”. These are evil actions, NOT flaws. A lot of villains, particularly in movies, will be given horrible things to do without any explanation for WHY they do them. And it’s pretty easy to give them reasons: just give them human weaknesses! That’s it. Whether the actions they take are as small as theft or as big as blowing up a planet, these actions stem from recognizable HUMAN FLAWS. So like a main character, a villain needs mental and moral flaws.  

Yup, even Maleficent has human flaws. And she’s a dragon part of the time. 

4) Counter Goal: 

All characters exist because they want something. And what do villains want? To get whatever the main character wants (for very different reasons), to stop them from reaching their goal, or another goal that directly conflicts with the hero’s goal. As long as that big tangible thing they want locks hero and villain in battle, you’re good. Think 101 Dalmatians: Cruella and the good guys are fighting over the puppies.  

5) Surface Motivations:  

Why is it that villains always have a team of followers? Because villains never outright state their true motivations. They always have a cover story, and that cover will paint them as righteous. Villains want to look like the good guy. So their real Hidden Motivations are defended by twisting perceptions of Good & Evil, by portraying evil acts in a positive light, by indulging their followers selfish emotions and desire to feel like “one of the good guys. " 

Take Gothel for example: she’s a loving mother who wants to protect her daughter from all the world’s darkness. (Sure you do, Flynn stabber.)  

Surface Motivations never stand up to logical scrutiny and a functioning moral compass, but giving your bad guy a compelling argument against your good side always makes things more interesting, which brings us to …

6) Counter Statement:

The main character needs to learn some kind of truth that will enable them to fix their lives, overcome their weaknesses, banish their ghosts. It’s whatever statement about "how to live a better life” you want to prove with your story. Your villain has other ideas. They don’t agree with that statement, have other beliefs about living life well, and represent an argument against it. For example, Voldemort: “there is no good and evil, there is only power, and those too weak to seek it." 

Although your argument isn’t very convincing, Voldy. I mean, you’re living in the back of some guy’s head.

7) Characterization: 

This is everything on the surface of the villain. The way they speak, the way they look, the way they act, their role in life, their status and power. This is the facade they project for the world to see, a calculated effort to control how they are perceived. This is closely connected to that surface want, because that surface is what they wish people to believe about them. Over time, the reader and the other characters are going to be able to see through this mask and see what it conceals. My favorite Disney example of this is Mother Gothel: on the surface she’s this bubbly mom who loves Rapunzel and wants to protect her from the harshness of the world. 

You can think of this as the text … 

8) Hidden Motivation: 

And this is the subtext. That surface motivation they want the world to believe is a mask concealing their true motivation, which is always rooted in their flaws,  selfishness, and skewed beliefs. 

9) Ghosts, Justification, Self-Obsession: 

These three are closely related, so they get counted together.
Like main characters, villains have GHOSTS: events from their backstories that knocked their worldviews out of alignment, that marked the beginning of their weaknesses, that haunt them still. Because these happened, the originally benign person allowed themselves to turn into someone who could occupy the job of "villain” in a story. Usually, these events are genuine misfortunes and are worthy of sympathy, just like the ghosts of a main character. Think of Voldemort growing up in an orphanage talking to snakes.

BUT! When it comes to ghosts, the major difference between a hero and a villain is HOW THEY DEAL with these unpleasant past events. Both have suffered, but react to suffering in very different ways. A villain will be consumed by these events, obsessed with the real (or imagined) persecution or disadvantage they’ve endured, convinced that all personal responsibility is nullified by their status of injured party. Past tragedies become a talisman that grants immunity from decency. 

This scene from A Series of Unfortunate Events sums it up.  An adult makes an excuse for a terrible person by saying he had a terrible childhood. And Klaus replies: 

Yes, maybe they’ve both lived through tragedy. But THE KIDS aren’t hurting others because of it. 

Because villains, who are constantly victimizing heroes, are completely convinced that THEY are the true victims here. No matter what they do, no matter what they are, they blame everything on that ghost, whether it was another person, society, or circumstances. And later they blame the hero, who they see as the REAL villain. For example, Frollo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame:  

“It’s not my fault, I’m not to blame”

So! WHY are villains like this?

SELF-OBSESSION! Yup, villains spend an unhealthy amount of time thinking about themselves and their plights and their plots. Think of any villain and it’s not hard to see the inherent narcissism behind everything they do. Like willingness to take action is the nonnegotiable trait of a main character, self-obsession is the trait that all villains seem to share. 

So! Developing villains in this way has worked out for me so far. If it looks like it might be helpful for you, give it a try.

And in the spirit of creating someone to torment our main characters and ruin their lives, here’s one more maniacal laugh for the road:


#yo witwer i’m really happy for you #imma let you finish #but what’s it gonna take to get the rest of you in a star wars movie??? #BECAUSE I NEED IT NOW BRO


That was probably the wrong answer…
