bunch of aliens

Okay just a little bit more Langst, but let’s imagine that the crew doesn’t get their first clue that something is wrong with Lance by themselves.

Like what if their first sign comes from a bunch of aliens that they saved.

So, what I’m thinking is it starts off where they have just saved a planet from more Galra, you know run of the mill paladin day stuff. And they’re about to go meet the aliens they’ve protected with the whole diplomacy song and dance.

And this race is all about feeling emotions, which affects how they act around each individual paladin.

With Pidge, who is extremely curious about these guys, she is surrounded by a few of them who are actively excited to show off to her and field all of her questions. They can feel her most predominant emotion coming out of the battle was inquisitive.

Hunk, who came out of that battle pretty banged up, was surrounded by aliens who were trying to help and comfort him as he was feeling tired and uncomfortable.

Keith, who came out of the battle still a bit high on adrenaline, was surrounded by a few aliens trying to calm him down, because even though he doesn’t show it they can feel it and it’s giving them an alien equivalent of a whole body headache.

Shiro, who is talking with the one in charge of the race, sees all of this as the alien explains to him about their emotions adaptation, along side extra information from the two Alteans in the castle. Shiro finds these reactions all fairly typical.

Lance however, who would have been thought to be surrounded by a loud and lively group, is found in a group of aliens that don’t really match Shiro’s expectations.

Lance is found looking a little confused but still smiling as he is surrounded by aliens that can’t seem to stop hugging him and whispering softly with him. No one can hear what they’re saying.

Shiro finds this odd but doesn’t ask the alien in charge about it (again this is only their first hint, they have a long way to go) but he does question Lance later as to what the aliens were doing.

Lance tells him he doesn’t know, that the aliens must have just found him really cuddly, and the matter is dropped.

In truth, the reason the aliens flocked to him to give hugs and support was because they felt a deep emotional hurt radiating off of him that they wanted to soothe away as much as they could. But it felt like such a deep rooted emotion that they weren’t able to do much.

Turns out that this species can’t be fooled with masks like most. After all people still can’t really fool their own feelings.

Lance: Hey, have you guys noticed how every Galra we meet has the same like, head ridge thing? Like a mohawk except it’s their skull or exoskeleton or whatever

Hunk: I honestly hadn’t really noticed, but now I’m gonna spend the rest of my life looking for it, so thanks for that Lance

Lance: I’m just fighting the good fight my guy. But anyway, my point was- Keith, do you think you also have something like that?

Keith: No?? I mean, you’d be able to see it, right? If there was… (voice trailing off) nothing in…

Lance: (triumphantly) Exactly! Keith, your weird mullet is covering it up!

Keith: (nonchalantly begins to frantically pat top of head) I. What? No, no there’s no way. You guys are being ridiculous. (dodges Hunk’s hands) Stop touching my hair!

Pidge: There’s only one way to find out for certain. I’ll get the razor.

Keith, immediately: You are not shaving my h-

Lance: (stands on the couch in a victory pose) HASTA LA LATER, MULLET

Okay I mean everyone acts like Priyanka Maheswaran is an overprotective helicopter mom for not wanting her 12 year old daughter to learn swordfighting and go up against a bunch of functionally immortal rock aliens in combat but if I found out all that stuff along with the fact that some pasty lanky ass shellfish lady was teaching my daughter that her life meant nothing and she should sacrifice everything for a 14 year old boy I’d storm down to the temple and kick Pearl’s ass myself

Humans Are Weird

I don’t know if I’m too late jumping on this fad, or if it’s already been said.

BUT

Imagine our Earth viruses being like, super strains of alien viruses.

Like, you’re on a ship with a bunch of aliens. They’ve just picked you up from Earth, and you have a cold. It’s the common cold, nothing more. You know to drink lots of fluids, and to keep your fever down.

But to them, the moment you start your snot waterfall, they began asking what you want for your funeral. They start getting your pier set up to send you off like Guardians of the Galaxy 2. And the whole time you’re like - “guys, it’s just a cold.”

But the big one from Omega 3 that you don’t know too well is like, “My whole village got that! Only ten survived!”

They look at you like you’re strange when all you say is, “Well, if everyone who caught the common cold died - I’m pretty sure the human race would be extinct by now.”

Then, when you walk away, they glance at each other. “They’re in denial, aren’t they?”

“Yep.”

Then imagine their surprise when, like a week later, you’re fine as can be. They tuck away the pier, just in case, in a storage haul. And all they can think is that humans are some kind of super being.

So I had a really difficult time figuring out how to upload the images so you read the correct one first so sorry if this is wrong. This is just a cute interaction between Walter and Daniels in the novelization so spoilers about that if you wanted to read it. I also apologize about the shitty image quality I was using two phones; one for a flashlight and one for the pictures and I didn’t have enough hands.

Humans in spaaaaace

Had this thought last night as I lay falling asleep. We have all these space-exploration-ensemble shows with a bunch of aliens each of which has some sort of super-human power, more or less. And humans are always given ~leadership~ as their special power. The ability to bring people together, to organize shit, and I always thought, like…what a shitty power. What a shitty colonial “you were a mess until we came in and saved you” power. Drives me nuts. Seems like if an alien species builds a got-damn ship that can fly through got-damn space they probably have their shit together, right? At least somewhat?

So then I figure, what is humanity got to contribute to all these super-beings? We’re just nonsense reckless critters careening through space. Seems like we’d be more trouble than we’re worth.

But what if…I mean, what if that’s us. We’re the universe’s huckleberries. We’ll run headlong into danger, and we’ll *laugh*. And what if…what if we survive and a weirdly abnormally high rate. Like any alien with two bits of math can put together that we should have wiped ourselves out a long time ago with the first set of “hold my beer, and watch this.” So what the shit, how are we still banging around the universe building shit and flying off solar ramps into the sun while doing some spaceship equivalent of an ollie while crushing beer cans on our forehead. Why. Why do we exist.

And then it hits me. We survive. We’re super good at it. Uncannily good at it. So much so that we…I mean, we actually bend probability in our favor. It’s absurd. And it totally falls flat if you actually tell us this (“Never tell me the odds,” said Solo, knowing full well that knowing the odds kills a human’s chances of survival).

So there we are. Careening around the universe. Joining alien crews because they know that with a human on board, especially a cocky human in some kind of leadership position, can warp probability to stretch success in their favor. And they can never ever tell us this. So instead they just pat our heads and tell us we’re just so good at ~leadership~ and that’s what makes humans special

But really…we’re just a bunch of space dinguses.

So from what I can tell:

  • Kaltenecker is alive and well bless, something good to come out from this show since s2
  • I want about 10 of those same creatures that attacked shiro because I want to feed them biscuits
  • Keith’s mom seems to be hanging back
  • Lance has his own seaspace horse
  • Shay and Allura are married
  • That one BoM galra is a big motherfucker and I want him to hug me, killing me instantly.
  • Hunk has a fangirl and she’s pretty cute
  • Kaltenecker looks fucking tired are you okay baby? Keith weighs like 2lbs you can’t be tired from that.
  • Sea creatures everywhere???
  • Laika’s still looking gorgeous and compared to Lance she’s fucking godzilla fucking damn. Need me a pupper like that.
  • Baby taujeer??? Fuck he cute????? Like a little slug on momma fuck.
  • Galra paul blart’s still here
  • My mermaid daughters are still alive and well everyone is okay
  • There’s a bunch of sea themed aliens so I automatically expect more Lance so they better fucking deliver
  • Haggar’s tryna be edgy and not show her face
  • Lance let his boyfriend ride his cow???? Goals honestly.
  • Thace is alive because good and pure things never fucking die
  • Shlav is canon????
  • Emo edgy mall teen is here apparently
  • There’s some galra looking dude top right that looks like he may have some significance to future episodes
  • Jellyfish fucking everywhere man
  • Hunk is still a shining beacon of light and hope and made a new chef friend
  • Seriously I know it smells like some kinda fish market
  • Apparently the two posters from s2 and this one go together to fit a lion in the bg so maybe they’ll do some gravity falls shit and form fucking voltron like that by the end of s8.
  • I’m convinced they are inside an aquarium

If you guys need even more proof that Lena is whipped, take it from a business major who learns daily about the life of a CEO. 

CEOs of any company, but especially a large one like L-Corp are extremely busy. We (or at least I) assume that L-Corp most likely operates in the tech industry, maybe manufacturing too, but don’t know for sure. But the tech industry is highly competitive and fast paced. The time of a CEO is extremely valuable to a company. 

Lena is the type of person who takes her job seriously. She is dedicated to rebranding and repositioning L-Corp, separating it from the evil of Luthor Corp. Hence most of her time is going to be spent strategizing how to do that. She doesn’t focus on small details like hiring and firing of employees (unless it’s like C-suite levels executives or other high ranking people), budgeting, marketing strategies, financial plans, etc. She will most likely delegate that to the CMO, CFO, COO, etc. She’s going to be making business deals, hence all of her meetings, listening to business pitches from R&D as well as other executives, attending board meetings to learn about the state of the company, etc. I was in my business to business marketing class last night and my professor was basically like “The CEO of a company got where they are because they know how to manage their time effectively, they time slice. If you’re pitching an idea to your CEO, you’ll have 10-15 minutes max. Maybe an hour if you’re good. That’s it.” Lena’s time is extremely valuable. 

The fact that she takes time out of her day to meet with Kara on social visits, takes time out of her day (most likely at least an hour or two) to meet Kara at CatCo to go out to lunch at some new Kombucha place, randomly drops by Kara’s apartment and her place of work to ask for a favor that she could have either called or asked Jess to contact Kara for her, spends her evenings when she could be working on her company, trying to help Kara find a bunch of missing aliens and her own mother is a testament of how much she actually cares for Kara. Even in just a platonic sort of way. In fact, I think it’s much more compelling if it is platonic. 

Also consider that when Kara forgot about their lunch outing, she wasn’t angry or annoyed in the slightest that Kara forgot. She was completely understanding and even offered to help her friend. As a CEO, when your time is that valuable, it would be completely understandable if Lena was even the least bit frustrated that Kara forgot. But she wasn’t. And we all know that they probably just ended up rescheduling and causing Lena to rearrange at least a couple of meetings to spend time with Kara.

So in short, Lena is whipped as fuck. 

You, a fool: gods don’t exist

Me: they exist, they’re an alien species that took over mankind long ago and posed as the Egyptian gods, and all the major religious deities in order to harvest our bodies for hosts and were only forced to leave after we buried the stable wormhole device they were using to come here.

Class on BBC America

ok so if youre following me and haven’t watched class already, i wouldn’t blame you if you just looked away from the title lmao, i am quite forceful when it comes to this

ANYWAY, as most of you probably know already, the new series of doctor who premieres on bbc america tonight at 9/8c (if you’re in the small minority who doesn’t just download it illegally when it comes out in the uk), and that’s awesome!! but before you’re tempted to switch off your tv immediately and scream on social media - there is a new show starting straight after, and you should really watch it

class is a spin-off of doctor who set at coal hill school, with a torchwood-like premise in that there is a tear in space and time which attracts a bunch of aliens. the cast is HUGELY diverse - there’s a black girl who is super intelligent and skipped two school years, but is still vulnerable and cares deeply about her family (and calls out another character on his alien racist attitudes); a sikh boy who talks about his religion, and loses a leg in the first episode and has to get used to using a prosthetic, and a gay polish character who deals with homophobia, but that isn’t his entire character. the only two white males are in a gay relationship, and there are two interracial relationships as well.
THERE’S NOT A SINGLE STRAIGHT WHITE MALE IN THE MAIN CAST!!

also it’s not written by moffat if that helps - its written by YA author patrick ness who’s written stuff like a monster calls, more than this, the rest of us just live here, etc.

HOWEVER, at the moment, due to lack of advertising from the bbc, only being shown online and being given a shitty time slot when it actually was shown on bbc one, it is very low on viewing figures, and in danger of not being renewed for a second season. at the moment, the bbc haven’t made a decision, and it entirely depends on how well it does in america - so it’s crucial that you watch it!! even if you don’t want to actually watch the show, at least leave your tv on after dw, to boost the viewing figures. posting about in online, specifically twitter and instagram since those are the only ones the bbc care about, would also help a lot, and signing the petition for season two (that i can’t link right now as im on mobile)

(the characters i didn’t mention are brilliant as well - there’s a girl who seems like a typical hufflepuff at the start but then becomes probably the second most badass character in the show, gay alien prince who’s socially awkward and adorable but also super morally grey and pretty much a slave owner, and although he doesn’t think so he gets called out on it a lot, and an alien freedom-fighter physics teacher who has hilarious lines but also a really complex personality and backstory and gets a shit ton of character development. she’s my fave. i love her a lot.)

tl;dr: class is on bbc america tonight at 10/9c (after dw), its really good, watch it or it won’t get a second season and i’ll cry

-Kinetic Abilities Prompt List C Edition

Carbokinesis - Control Carbon

  • As someone who happened to buy a lot of coal, I end up with a lot of diamonds.
  • You know those carbon filters in fish tanks? I never have to change mine now. I just sort of wave the guck out? It’s an easy chore.
  • Don’t forget, there’s carbon in steel. If I take it out, this whole city’s going down.

Cardiokinesis - Control Hearts

  • I don’t know why you think this has to do with love. Hearts are organs that only pump blood. I mean, I guess if your heart beats faster, you feel like you’re in love.
  • I spent years in medical school specializing in heart surgery just so I could discretely fix people’s hearts much faster than they should be able to. But whenever anyone asks me what my secret to fast and perfect surgery is, I have to lie and it’s eating me inside.

Caelestikinesis - Control Celestial Bodies

  • Is it weird I can tell you’re an aries? I’m getting that you’re an aries. 
  • Okay, so making the night sky spell out “will you marry me?” was awesome but I think I ruined a bunch of aliens’ homes. I really hope they don’t know I did that.

  • Yeah I can make a shield, but it’s gonna be copper. Sorry I can’t do anything else. 
  • I’ve gotten into the habit of driving by old neighborhoods and making all the copper wiring and pipes be sucked into my truck. It’s only slightly villainous. 

Cogitokinesis - Control Thought

  • If you’re going to be so angry about my favorite song, enjoy it in your head forever.
  • I make quite the racket erasing unwanted thoughts. Where those thoughts go though is only for me to worry about. 
  • My robots seem too mechanical. I should steal someone’s thoughts to give them a bit of personality.

  • It doesn’t matter how far away something is, if I can see it, I can touch it.

  • I’ve got the polar ice caps fixed, Antartica is looking good, and I’ve got enough snow cones today’s day at the park.

  • My modern witchcraft store is stocked full with crystals and stones. And it’s all homemade.
  • If I really tried, I could get my crystal healing techniques to go towards a doctorate.
  • You picked the wrong mineshaft to battle me in. You’be basically given me the battle. 

Cytokinesis - Control Cells of Organisms

  • Even if I’m terminal, I can just fix it. I don’t see why I shouldn’t be allowed to fix you too.
  • Changing what shape my cells take is the ultimate camouflage. No one suspects the dog.

kingtwelvesixteen  asked:

Human's facial expressions are hard to read. Not because aliens are bad at it or something, it's just that humans show their teeth both as a threat display AND to show their happiness and it throws a bunch of aliens off and makes us seem weird and unpredictable. Aliens experienced with human body-language don't find any issue with it though.

Alien 1: BUT THEY LACK TAILS, how can you even understand them without tails? Can we just come back when a different species has evolved more sensibly?

Alien 2: I keep telling you, they use other things. Just because you’re too lazy to pay attention—

Alien 1: But it’s weeeiiiird

Shallura Wedding Headcanons

Private Wedding

  • They end up having two wedding ceremonies. The first is a private ceremony that takes place on the Castle of Lions/in an open field full of wildflowers on Earth, so that the team’s relatives (like Shiro’s parents) are able to attend.
  • His parents never imagined their son would marry an alien princess who was cryogenically frozen for 10,000 years; but they also didn’t expect him to be abducted from Kerberos’ moon, imprisoned for a year, and then to have joined up with a young team of earthlings and two Alteans to defend the universe from evil.
  • Needless to say, they are very happy for him and absolutely adore Allura.
  • Lance’s little cousins are the ring-bearer and the flower girl.
  • The wedding is very lax and simple, which is perfect in Shiro’s eyes.
  • Allura is more than happy to share Shiro’s culture and wear a simple black and white kimono courtesy of his parents, because she’s always wanted one after Shiro once described traditional Japanese clothing.
  • Shiro also wears a traditional black kimono
  • Coran officiates the wedding.
  • Not only do Shiro’s parents/family provide traditional Japanese cuisine, Lance, Hunk, and Pidge’s families also provide some homemade cooking. So, basically they have the best multicultural buffet, and it is awesome. Not only are Shiro and Allura’s family/cultures merging together, but everyone’s is, because they’re all family.
  • When it gets dark, they probably have a bonfire and stargaze until they retreat into the castleship to share stories of their adventures.

Intergalactic Royal Wedding

  • The second wedding ceremony is much, much bigger and more extravagant. Mostly because the entire universe is watching and there’s hundreds of guests that are welcome to see it in person.
  • It takes place on a planet that has been dubbed “New Altea” and is populated by Alteans (and other aliens) who were initially in hiding before they joined in the war effort years back.
  • As much as it makes Shiro paranoid (because you know he’s always concerned about security breaches) he is just so glad that Allura’s not only getting the official and royal, beautiful wedding that she deserves, but she also gets to celebrate it with her new family and the newly found Alteans that were in hiding.  
  • Allura wears an amazing, white backless gown with a long train. It’s sparkly (!!!), has a sheer cape, and flows freely.
    • It’s important to her to have traditional Altean touches to the dress, but it’s her jewelry that is truly Altean.
    • She wears an ensemble of gold earrings, pendant, and crown, all handed down from her late mother. They’re made of gold and have traditional turquoise crystals.
  • Shiro wears a formal black and gold trimmed Altean suit with a cape.
  • Coran walks Allura down the aisle and is a sobbing mess while he gives her away. He knows that Alfor and Allura’s mother would not only be proud of the incredible leader she’s become, but of the man she’s chosen to marry (even with his hideous ears).
  • Allura and Shiro find it important to integrate both human and Altean marriage traditions.
    • They exchange rings and vows.
    • As per Altean tradition, they are both given a burning candle and light a much bigger third candle together at the altar. They then blow out their own candles, and the bigger candle will stay lit until the end of their marriage, or until their deaths. It symbolizes unity and the bond of them becoming one body for the rest of their lives. (I’ve based this on a marriage tradition from Colombia).
    • It’s also traditional for Alteans to exchange quintessence with each other, which is one of the reasons why the bride will show a little more skin at the wedding to show off the glowing of her markings.
    • Ideally, they’ll hold hands and channel and mix quintessence together.
    • Because Shiro’s human, he didn’t expect to be able to do it (and they had attempted before), but to their surprise, he’s able to push back Allura’s quintessence and his arm glows.
    • At the end of the ceremony, it’s also an Altean tradition to behead a bottle of Nunvil as an act of trust between the newlyweds. Shiro holds the Nunvil bottle while Allura beheads the bottle with the sharp edge of a celebratory Altean sword. (I based this on a technique called sabrage, which is used for ceremonial occasions and was popular in France).
  • Keith is Shiro’s best man
    • Keith is extremely nervous about giving a speech because he’s “bad at this” but he has some really touching words to say that make a lot of of the crowd (and viewers at home) cry.
    • He touches upon how Shiro has always been there for him in his time of need, and how he knows that he will do/has done the same thing for Allura.
    • He can’t stress enough how Shiro and Allura are incredible leaders always looking out for their team and each other. He’s seen their dynamic firsthand and knows that they make a great team.™
    • Shiro is in tears by the end of his speech and gives Keith a big bro hug.
  • Hunk, Lance, and Matt are the groomsmen.
  • Pidge is Allura’s maid of honor.
    • Like Keith, she’s also pretty nervous about giving a speech, especially because she doesn’t feel like she’s as close to Allura as Keith is to Shiro. But she recalls all of the bonding moments she and Allura have had over the years that they’ve defended the universe, despite their different interests and personalities.
    • Not to mention having a front row seat to the blossoming relationship between the two leaders of Voltron.
    • She has some fond memories of her and the guys making bets over when Shiro and Allura would officially get together, and making some schemes to get them together.
    • None of these schemes worked, mostly because Shiro and Allura kept their relationship under wraps and were together for months before anyone found out. So, joke was on the rest of the paladins.
    • Allura is incredibly touched, especially since Pidge feels like the little sibling she never had.
  • Shay and Nyma are the bridesmaids
    • They aren’t aware of what bridesmaids even are, but they just roll with it.

Reception

  • The first dance of the night between Shiro and Allura starts off with a traditional Altean slow dance. Followed by Otis Redding’s “That’s How Strong My Love Is.”
  • Lance hijacks the DJ and breaks out all the typical wedding reception songs, like the Macarena, Electric Slide, Cupid Shuffle, Cha Cha Slide, etc.
    • Needless to say, there are a bunch of confused aliens that don’t understand any of these songs. But you know Lance is happy to show them all how it’s done.
    • And Keith.
    • Keith: “What the hell is a ‘macarena?’
    • Lance: “Oh man, oh buddy, oh paaaaal. Lemme teach you.”
  • Lance and Hunk tease Shiro about the garter toss and don’t think he’ll take any part in it
    • Shiro sits Allura down in a chair, drops to his knees, pulls up the skirt of her wedding dress with a wink and puts his head under.
    • Allura is bright pink (her markings are literally glowing) since she not only has no idea that this is an earth tradition, but this is literally happening in front of the entire universe. Or at least the people invited to the reception.
    • Shiro comes back up with the garter in his teeth. He’s got a smug grin on his face and Allura playfully shoves at his face and demands to know about the other absurd earth traditions.
    • Lance and Hunk can’t believe he actually did it.
  • Shiro throws the garter behind him to the group of single/unmarried men.
    • Lance catches it, puts it between his teeth and does finger guns at all the ladies and then at Keith.
    • Keith’s mostly just confused. And also kind of grossed out, because Lance, that was also in Shiro’s mouth two seconds ago.
  • Allura, after being told about the bouquet toss, throws her bouquet behind her.
    • Except Allura overshoots it by about 20 feet and hits Hunk.
    • Hunk lights up and hands it over to Shay.
    • Shay misunderstands and thinks it’s a proposal and exclaims, “I accept!!”
    • Hunk ain’t even mad. He just kisses her.
  • Pidge and Matt start a conga line.
    • It gets pretty out of hand.
  • Pidge and Hunk made little drones to record the reception and the wedding, so they can edit it together into a video they can all look back on for years to come 
  • Everyone gets pretty drunk, tbh
    • By the end of the night, Lance has danced and flirted with literally all the party guests, including dancing on top of the tables, and doesn’t know where the heck his shoes or tie is. It’s a surprise to everyone that he still has his shirt on.
    • Keith’s a surprisingly good singer, but no one even knew that until he decided to try out karaoke while very, very drunk. He sings a lot of Journey, MCR, and Madonna. He doesn’t remember any of this the next morning and is horrified when he sees the footage of himself.
    • Hunk has been parading around the dance floor and serenading Shay, flower in his mouth, and Shay cannot stop laughing.
    • Pidge has been toting Matt around to make sure he doesn’t get into any trouble (she’s the only one who hasn’t been drinking, because she hates the taste of nunvil and would rather be eating all the delicious food).
    • Shiro and Allura spend a lot of their night saying their hellos and thank yous to everyone for coming.
    • But later in the night they get pretty tipsy, too. Shiro more than Allura since his tolerance to nunvil is very low compared to his wife’s.
    • He steps on her feet more times than he can count, but Allura always just laughs and readjusts him (it’s not like it hurts anyway).
  • By the end of the night, when the party is just about over, Shiro and Allura make sure that the entire team is accounted for and are led back safely to their guest rooms at New Altea’s castle.
    • Lance insists that the party isn’t over and that he needs to go back, but Shiro and Allura pat his back and make sure he gets in bed.
    • Keith, drunk as Lance (if not more) is incredibly emotional and close to crying as he congratulates Shiro and Allura over and over about their marriage.
    • Shiro and Allura make their honeymoon getaway in the black lion and peace out for like, two weeks, so they can be out of the limelight and have some quiet for just themselves for once.
