but it sounds like eyes

I walk behind you in dreams. I follow you to the ends of the Earth. We hop on a train and we leave and we never come back. Not for anybody. I think of you as a kind of light. I’d follow you to the moon, and live there with you, and die there with you. I call you my best friend — but you are so much more than that. You are the most interesting person I’ve ever met. Your voice sounds like the ocean I’ve heard in shells. I close my eyes and it’s like I’m almost next to you again. Except I’m not. You are the good people search their entire lives looking for. You are the good that people die for. There are entire countries that could live off your heart. There’s so much in it. It could power entire cities, entire countries. I had a dream we were walking down a street with so many lights hung up, my eyes were starting to burn. But you were still the brightest.

Part of my roadtrip tool me to Atlanta. And, the Civil Rights Center was amazing. Very powerful. They have this one exhibit where you sit at a lunch counter and close your eyes and put on headphones. And It plays sounds like you are at a sit in and people are yelling. And it times how long you can sit there for. I think i lasted almost a minute before i was almost crying.

It…made its point.


スタジオ生出演、羽生に聞く by hana02015

Rudimentary Japanese translation of some interesting points from Yuzu’s recent interview because it’s quite comprehensive and I’m not sure if someone’s subbing it~~ (note: my Japanese is far from perfect so corrections are welcome- this is more of the ‘gist’ of the conversation and not word for word)

  • Said his season began with injury so he was essentially starting from behind the line, but also because of the hard times, he was able to grow
  • Re: Worlds - announcer praised his perfect FS and Yuzu said it was to the point where people were asking if he failed the short on purpose to trigger his fighting spirit lol but he admits that he probably wouldn’t have skated the FS with that sort of spirit if he had done well at the short so he needs to keep improving
  • Re: WTT Yuzu said doesn’t usually get the chance to watch other people’s performances from close by. Seeing the ladies skate so cleanly, he realised that the high level of this era of competition, where even the smallest mistake will cause you to drop in the rankings. In the Mens, it’s not simply that you have to jump quads, you also can’t miss. He said that was very instructive and he learned a lot
  • Re: New Quad Era’ and the 4A. Yuzu said he’s tried it during practice in the off-season but it’s difficult – says it’s a special jump (due to the entry method) with high risk and so he has to consider risk of injuries etc. when practising it
  • TV station made a hologram/projection of Yuzu landing a 4A. Yuzu: ‘whoaa this is cool, I want to jump with it’
  • They say he has to jump 17cm higher than for the 3A. Yuzu: ‘huh, it sounds quite high but it’s…kind of really just my hair isn’t it?’ He’d also need to land 1.1m further than 3A and rotate 10% faster. Yuzu fairly unfazed: ‘Looking at it now, I feel like I…can probably jump that?’ and thanks them because he feels like he can visualise it now, thanks to the hologram lol
  • Yuzu’s old (first?) skating teacher was all like: ‘I feel like conversation about quints is coming closer’ lololol
  • Yuzu doesn’t feel particularly unnerved/scared that the sQuad are younger than him. Said he knew Shoma since very young and though Shoma is a kouhai, after fighting through the competitions together, he also sees Shoma as a nakama ( ; u ; )
  • more discourse on quads: Yuzu says what helps you land the quads is not really young age/experience but ‘sense’ for the jumps
    • The next part was hard for me to understand since I didn’t pick up on all the words but I think the gist of it is that successful jumping comes down to each individual and if you have the instinct for it, a ‘challenger’ can come from anywhere
    • 最終的はそれぞれの個人の体((退学に合わせたもの)))??? idk guys soz lmao
  • SHOWED THE QUAD LUTZ : D
  • They were like ‘can you…land the lutz in practice? should we put a circle or triangle?’ and yuzu laughed and was like ‘t-triangle….’, implying his Lutz isn’t perfect yet 
  • ‘It’s a hard jump but it’s fun! Since the season is finally over and we’re finally free from competitions, I wanted to try it.’
  • Says he’s not going to put the Lutz in the Olympic program - says having a lot of quad varieties does not mean you can win
  • they talked a bit about the 3/11 earthquake and Yuzu said bc he had the experience of losing his home-rink and still remembers the hard times that followed, he’s always quite happy and grateful to be able to practice in a rink
  • Has absolutely no plan for Pyeongchang at the moment LMAO
  • first plan for off season………wants to improve a lot of skating skills (#typical), esp 4Lz and the 3Lz because 3Lz went a bit weird (bc he’s practising 4Lz?) lmaooo
  • Goal for next season: ‘Towards perfection’ - 理想の先へ (literally: towards the ideal destination but he implies he means ‘beyond’ the ideal). He’d characterise this season (with the Loop) as a season of getting closer towards the ideal. Next season he wants to surpass the current ‘ideal’ he has. People say you shouldn’t have limits but Yuzu thinks it’s good to have limits, but if you set your own limits, you should set them higher than you’re able to achieve right now (I think? I’m not entirely confident I’m hearing it right)

shjt u h how do you edit out edgy text you absolutely regret putting in your picture when its kind of embedded into a background that took you like half an hour to get exactly right and that you can probably never replicate?? asking for a friend

zest??? zest!!!

  • “Quite off his crumpet” - he’s crazy
  • “All at sixes and sevens” - confused

  • “He gets my goat” - he annoys me
  • “As sure as eggs is eggs” - something is certain
  • “Dying duck in a thunderstorm” - feeling blue, woebegone
  • “Spinach and Gammon” - nonsense
  • “Quite another pair of shoes” - quite a different matter
  • “Nineteen to the dozen” - very fast
  • “In my eyes and Betty Martin” - complete nonsense
  • “Thin edge of the wedge” - the beginning of a harmful development
  • “Cross-grained” - a person who’s hard to deal with
  • “Keep your pecker up” - stay cheerful
  • “A goose is walking over my grave” - sudden feeling of chilliness
  • “The wind’s in the quarter” - something is suspicious
  • “That cat won’t jump” - that idea isn’t going to work
  • “Have a butcher’s” - have a look
  • “I’ll knock you up” - I’ll visit you
the time Shinsou met Eraserhead

- Eraserhead is little shinsou’s idol
- shinsou knows all about him! well, all that there is to know (which isn’t much, considering the low profile he keeps)
- but one day, something happens, something that’s a near mirror of a future encounter between a popular hero and a quirkless boy
- it happens when elementary schooler shinsou sees a man and realizes - that’s HIM
- that’s shinsou’s hero!! that’s ERASERHEAD!!!
- and young shinsou, he runs up to his idol
- with the little eraserhead toy his mom made for him (since there’s none in stores) clutched tight in his little hands
- those hands are shaking as shinsou asks - “can i be a hero? a hero like you?”
- aizawa looks at the young boy in front of him, crouches down, and asks - “like me?”
- and shinsou tells him, tells his idol how his quirk isn’t physical like most heroes’ are, and how his quirk won’t work, won’t be effective if everyone knows what it is, so he’s worried that even if he manages to become a hero, soon enough into his career it’ll just be useless
- and aizawa cocks his head, thinks a bit, and then tells shinsou a few things about how he does his hero work and what it means for a hero to have a non-physical quirk
- he’s not going to give a tiny child battle advice, but he makes sure to encourage and reassure him a bit
- and then, then
- aizawa, aizawa asks shinsou what his quirk is
- and shinsou gets nervous and fidgety
- aizawa tells him that it’s okay, that he doesn’t have to tell him his quirk
- and shinsou is ready to cry because this is all so overwhelming
- (his mom watches nervously because she just wants her little boy to be okay and happy and doesn’t meeting your heroes never end well?)
- and shinsou whispers it out, whispers how he can control people, can make them do anything, but only after they respond to him
- and aizawa, he puts it together from all the hints, he realizes that this little boy probably has people being mean to him because of his quirk
- (is this because aizawa was bullied? because maybe aizawa once was a child just like shinsou, would get beat up even when he took his bullies’ quirks away? it’s possible)
- and aizawa just looks shinsou in the eye
- and tells shinsou -
- “that sounds like a FANTASTIC quirk. perfect for fighting villains”
- (shinsou tears up real fast, he’s positively BEAMING at this point)
- aizawa leaves shinsou with a parting comment as he pushes himself up into a standing position
- “I can’t wait to work with you one day”
- “…work with me?”
- “work with you, yes. as heroes. good luck, i know you’ll be a great one.”

- (years later, aizawa smiles when he sees a boy in the sports festival with a mind control quirk, smiles as he recognizes the quirk and thinks back on an old memory)
- (“shinsou hitoshi,” he whispers to himself. “i gotta remember that name.”)

Lost in skies of powdered gold
Caught in clouds of silver ropes

Slytherin: My boyfriend just broke up with me…

Hufflepuff: Aww, I’m sorry! Do you want a hug?

Slytherin: What? No! I am waiting for Ravenclaw to say something…

Hufflepuff: What can Rav…

Ravenclaw: I have access to all their credit cards, bank accounts, social security, and their entire background information from the pentagon, as well as their IRS tax statements…

Hufflepuff: … Slytherin, don’t do this … this sounds like a very bad idea! ….

Slytherin: *rolls eyes*

Slytherin: … anything else?

Ravenclaw: His Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and CrunchyRoll password is SnakesRule4ever…

Slytherin: Hufflepuff, do we have anymore ice cream?

Kuron is an android, not a clone:

so S3 Shiro (aka Kuron) is obviously not real Shiro, based on {all these reasons here} plus all the multiple other metas floating around detailing all the differences. the most common theory at this point seems to be that Kuron is Shiro’s clone, but i’m gonna make the case that he’s not a human clone - he’s an android, i.e. a humanoid robot, but he thinks he’s human.

  • in {this video clip of 3x05} you can hear a mechanical sound as Kuron’s pupils dilate, which sounds like a camera focusing - as if his eyes are cameras
  • Kuron survived for days on the ice planet, and for a week in space without food or water, which a human shouldn’t be able to do
  • Kuron acts cold and robotic, as evidenced by {this gifset} of him coldly telling Keith to open the team up to attack for the sake of the mission
  • in all of VLD so far we’ve never seen any hint at the Galra using clones - in fact, all the Galra we see are very different and individual
  • however… we have seen them use robot sentries:
  • Kuron not only has a different haircut etc, his physical features also look different - there’s differences in his eye shape and hairline, his eyebrows are thinner, and his shoulders are more flat than Real Shiro’s, and his arms and chest are more bulky
    • if he’s genetically identical to Shiro, we wouldn’t expect to see those differences in eye shape, eyebrows, or hairline, but we do
  • (not to mention, those squared-off shoulders make Kuron look even more like the Galra sentry robots)
  • that creepy dead-eyed Shiro lying on a table during Kuron’s escape? it’s not a failed clone - it’s an android that hasn’t been programmed yet:
  • …hence the vacant stare and expressionless face
  • we know Haggar can transfer a living consciousness into a robot body, because she does it to the Robeasts several times (i.e. Myzax and Prorok both got transferred into robot bodies)
  • as i pointed out in {this meta about Shiro’s bayard}, Shiro never uses guns on the show - but Kuron uses a gun during his escape. you know who else uses guns? the Galra sentry robots.
  • on a meta level, “robot replacement who thinks they’re the original human” is much more in keeping with the science fantasy genre than clones

and i want to bring up one final point, which is that the design of the Galra ships, sentry robots, and uniforms are all reminiscent of the Cylons from Battlestar Galactica:

(Allura wearing the guard helmet. notice the similarity in the V over the eyes)

In BSG, the robot Cylons were also used as sentries and guards, just like they are in Voltron. However, there were also humanoid Cylons (i.e. androids) who could pass for real humans. And some of them were programmed to think they were human…

KURON IS AN ANDROID, NOT A CLONE

His voice was almost a whisper, warm breath hitting the shell of your ear. And the heat coupled with the slow, savory movements of his fingers overtop the thin fabric had an almost numbing effect, your mind drawing a blank as you enter an intoxicating haze.

“I thought there was no punishment?” you manage to say, swallowing back the moans that threatened to escape.
“This is a demonstration baby, not a punishment.”
