but she is the last of her name

A thought I come back to about the idea of Keith hypothetically “turning purple” is like…

Entirely besides the issue of Keith having self-esteem issues or acceptance issues or such, there’s a whole angle of…

It’s kind of like if you had spent your entire life without any mirrors, with your body covered from the neck down, and one day someone actually hands you a mirror and “Wait am I a redhead? I have freckles? Is my nose really shaped like that?”

Because that’s just it. We know Keith has some amount of galra heritage. We also know the galra are kind of a highly diverse species.

Appearance is, for better and for worse, an element of identity. There’s all manner of well-meaning platitudes of beauty is only skin-deep and inside we’re all the same or some such but honestly- there are things that become meaningful to us because they are traits about the body that we inhabit. It’s a little ridiculous that we wouldn’t in some way be affected by our appearance. We sorta live here.

So entirely outside of Keith dealing with sentiments brought to the surface- his feeling like an outsider, his fear of rejection- Keith being able to actually take a good look at himself for probably the first time in his life and go “…this is me?”

That Little Girl

Pairing: Bucky X Reader (]platonic)

Request: anonymous: Could you write something where Rumlow had a daughter that they had the winter soldier protect and they gave her certain trigger words that disable the soldier mode incase he lost control? Since he’s dead now and she’s still a minor she runs away to find the avengers and gets the trigger words to them to help Bucky. He remembers her and how as a child she would sneak him snacks and how kind she was to him. The team ends up keeping her since she’s a kid with no place to go.

A/N: I find this fic really cute, the idea was great so the story turned out great. Thank you anaon! I am too tired to write ANYTHING anymore, so I’ll just stop. I didn’t wanna use google translate so I sneaked in some hindi in this fic. Please overlook any mistake I couldn’t edit that much. Hope you like it!

It was a usual day for him, for the winter soldier. After being stitched back together and being given the necessary to keep him just alive, he was thrown in his cell again. he didn’t struggle, struggling just made it worse. Struggling was of no use.

He looked up the window from where the moonlight or the sunlight would seep through sometimes, clinking his metal fingers against the bars so the biting silence which waited with its jaws open wouldn’t hurt so much. He was looking down, drumming his fingers when he couldn’t feel the light on his eyes. He looked up and found a child looking curiously at him. why wasn’t she scared?

‘are you the winter soldier?’ she tilted her head and looked at him with her curious (y/e/c) eyes. He was too tired to function, and he wasn’t allowed to talk to anyone, he kept mum and gave her a glare. ‘you have very pretty eyes’ she sat down cross legged and smiled at him. this was new.

‘go away.’ Was all he said.

‘it’s hot, are you hot?’ she asked unaffected by tone which was used with her. boy was he, they never gave him cold water, and the suit didn’t help either. ‘here, I got you an ice cream cone.’ She offered him the bright wrapper treat. He was always on a strict diet, he really wanted to take it, some voice inside him said he had really liked such sweet treats.

‘I can’t.’ He said almost grimly and looked down. ‘go away, or they will hurt me.’ he muttered and then looked at her. ‘you too, maybe.’

‘they won’t, please take it. you will fell nice and cool-‘she heard footsteps and quickly handed it to him. ‘sit in’ she pointed. ‘that corner, they won’t be able to see you there’ she said. ‘bye, wintey!’ she chirped and ran away.

It was an alien experience for him, he wasn’t used to such….. warmth. He hesitated a little but picked the cone up and unwrapped it. And that’s how the winter soldier had an ice-cream for the first time in decades.

Her visits became more frequent, and he wasn’t complaining. She was sweet, she would talk to him, crack weird jokes, bring him snacks, braid his hair, tell him stories, give him drawings of herself and him. it was all nice, he was feeling again. affection does that.

She came back and he eagerly walked to the window, almost forgetting his broken rib. But it didn’t matter, she was here, what was her name..? he didn’t care. He went there and received a little kiss on his cheek, it was the first time she had done that. She fixed her hairband and ran a hand through her (y/h/c) hair.

‘you look very happy, ___’ he looked at her.

‘yeah-‘before she could finish she was picked up by someone. It was Rumlow, he recognized him at once.

‘you slimy, sick, bastard, how dare you even talk to my daughter!’ he growled. Bucky’s ‘handlers’ busted in the room. everything happened so quick, he just couldn’t wrap his head around it all. She was being taken away from him, he struggled, he couldn’t let the little happiness he had left go away. He punched, he kicked but soon; he couldn’t. he was sedated.

  ‘he’s a bad man, sweetie.’ Rumlow started to walk away and rubbed her back soothingly. Her eyes were fixed on bucky’s and his on her. ‘wintey’ she mouthed with a hint of tears in her eyes. With the last of his strength, he shouted, he called out her name.

‘(Y/N)!!’ bucky shouted and sat up in his bed. he wiped the sweat and realized it was a dream, a repressed memory that found its way back to him. the memory of her, of (y/n), sweet, little, kind (y/n).

You were here, standing in front of the avengers’ base. you wanted to go, you wanted to help him, you wanted to expiate for what your father had done. But you couldn’t find the strength. After a lot of chaos, you made you way to the gates.

‘for him.’ you thought. ‘you were stopped by the guard. ‘I-I am Brock Rumlow’s daughter’ you said with great difficulty and the guard’s eyes gre wide. ‘I am here to help.’ You said and he was quick to make a call.

A call had set everything in a quick motion. What was it? bucky thought. A new mission? A new problem? Nobody would explain him. just pass away after giving him a soft expression.

You were standing in front on earth’s mightiest heroes, while they studied you. you hadn’t felt this conscious in your rugged clothes before.

‘I didn’t know he had a daughter.’ Clint broke the silence as he breathed.

‘he kept it off records, he knew the system quite well.’ Natasha said.

‘kid, we won’t hurt you, but before you tell us more about those codes you talked about, can you tell us how you got here?’ tony asked as he stepped forwards and looked at you. you too a deep breath and nodded.

‘i-I ran away. Dad was the only family member I had. With him gone… I couldn’t take it so I ran away. I don’t know how or what to feel about him. I just want to help,’ you looked up at them. ‘expiate for what my father did.’

‘it’s very brave of you (y/n)’ bruce smiled at you. it indeed was very brave for a teenage girl like you to travel such a great distance all by yourself.

‘where is he?’ you asked. Tony nodded and called steve.

Steve grabbed bucky’s arm and gave him an assuring smile, bucky returned it but he was scared, were they going to do something to him? he shook that thought away and got ready for whatever it was.

Bucky stopped when he saw the girl standing in front of him, same (y/e/c) eyes but less curious and more tired, (y/h/c) still shiny and what they seemed like soft, the same complexion just a little darker because of all the sun you must have been in. it couldn’t be. It couldn’t be you.

‘bucky, this is (y/n).’ steve said and he didn’t care what else he had to say. It was (y/n), his little companion (y/n). the sweet little, but not so little now, (y/n).

‘(y/n)?’ he breathed and you nodded with a familiar smile. ‘(y/n)!’ he moved closer to you and sounded happy. The avengers were very confused at this sight. Bucky wasn’t one to smile, how could he grin like that on seeing the girl?

‘wintey.’ You said rather sheepishly and he scrunched his nose. ‘how are you?’ you tilted your head in the same way.

‘very happy.’ He replied. ‘me too’ you said. ‘why are you here?’ he asked.

‘to help you.’ you answered. ‘your programming, I can undo it. you were once sent to protect me. I had a code which could bring you to the ‘neutral’ state if you were to lose control.’ You explained and everyone listened carefully.

‘buck, do you wanna do it?’ steve asked. Codes. The words did something to him he couldn’t explain. He was scared but it was you, you wouldn’t hurt him, would you?

‘I do.’ bucky looked steve in the eyes and then looked at you. ‘you won’t hurt me. I just know.’ He said and you nodded.

‘it’s a very powerful code and it was made in hindi. you might feel dizzy or faint.’ You said and he nodded understandingly. ‘okay.’ You smiled and took in a sharp breath. Everyone took a defensive position without looking too obvious.

‘dard.’ You said and his breathing hitched. ‘dost.’ He felt something flooding back to him. ‘vardi.’ He sat down, breathing heavily and steve and others stood by him. ‘loha.’ He felt a sting. ‘insan.’ Everything around him started spinning. ‘andhera.’ There wasn’t enough oxygen. ‘aatman.’ His eyes started to close. ‘shaanti.’ His eyes closed and you stood close to him.

‘what happened?! Is he okay!?’ steve asked and everyone looked at you.

‘he is. Let him sleep. he will wake up, things will start getting better.’ You smiled at him and lightly patted his hand.

17 hours. It took him 17 hours to wake up. steve greeted him with a tired smile when he rose from his bed.

‘how do you feel?’ steve asked.

‘light.’ Bucky replied after thinking a little. He rubbed his face ‘what happened?’

‘when (y/n) said the last word-‘

‘where’s she?’ he asked as the memory came back to him.

‘oh, here for now, sleeping on the floor in the living room.’ he replied and scoffed. ‘weirdly cute kid, said everything else was-‘

‘too soft.’ He interrupted and steve nodded. he quickly made his way to find you. upon reaching the common room he found you peacefully curled up on the floor with your old backpack. He ran to your side and sat down next to you. god, you had grown so much.

Your eyes shot open and you sat up to face him. your father had trained you well.

‘oh, it’s you.’ you rubbed your eyes.

‘yeah, it’s wintey.’he grinned and you chuckled.

‘I was a kid.’ You muttered.

‘you kinda still are.’ He shrugged.

‘not really,’ you stood up and he followed. ‘I have to be all grown up now.’ You gave him a tight smile and hung your bag. ‘bye, I gotta go, was just waiting to see if you are okay. I hope you have a great life-‘

‘nuh-uh. You are not leaving me again. you’re not going anywhere.’ He pointed. ‘but-‘

‘you can stay here, kiddo.’ Steve was leaning against the door frame. ‘we got plenty of rooms.’

‘thank you. but i-‘ you couldn’t speak anymore for bucky had pulled you in a tight embrace. When was the last time you got a hug?

‘nope, not going anywhere.’ He mumbled in your hair.

‘thanks.’ Your muffled voice came out. He pulled away and had a grateful look. ‘thank you,’ he kept a hand on your cheek. ‘for everything you did.’ he ruffled your hair.

Not so long ago, you would have stared in awe at the girl in front of you. She was almost glowing in a beautiful golden tutu. It was long and shimmering, reaching down to her calves. Her pointe shoes was gold satin, with matching ribbons. Her bodice was made from panels of more gold satin. It was cut in a ‘v’ down her chest, making her look even more elegant, and translucent beads were stitched up in delicate branches. Her hair was plaited and twisted into a bun. She looked like some sort of a princess.

But you weren’t the (Name) who’d first met her outside Jimin’s studio that night.

Taeyeon stood glaring at you, looking nothing like the prima ballerina you’d once thought she’d resembled.

Jimin cautiously stood up, looking Taeyeon up and down. “Taeyeon, what are you doing?”

We’re dancing our pas de deux, Jimin.” She said, picking up a layer of her tutu and letting it drift down again. She couldn’t be serious.
“But right now I need to talk to (Name).”

“Lex malla, lex nulla,” said Julian with a regretful wave of his hand. It was the Blackthorn family motto: A bad law is no law.

“I wonder what other family mottoes are,” Emma mused. “Do you know any?”

"The Lightwood family motto is ‘We mean well.’ ”

"Very funny.”

Julian looked over at her. “No, really, it actually is.”

"Seriously? So what’s the Herondale family motto? ‘Chiseled but angsty’?”

He shrugged. ‘If you don’t know what your last name is, it’s probably Herondale’?”

Emma burst out laughing. “What about Carstairs?” she asked, tapping Cortana. “ ‘We have a sword’? ‘Blunt instruments are for losers’?”

"Morgenstern,” offered Julian. “ ‘When in doubt, start a war’?”

"How about ‘Has even one of us ever been any good, like ever, seriously’?”

"Seems long,” said Julian. “And kind of on the nose.”

Chris Evans Imagine

–His P.O.V–

Another day, another interview well more like 5 interviews. I love what I do, but the last days I haven’t been able to really concentrate on what I do. People around me have noticed it too. The only people i have told the real reason for my emotion absence were Anthony and Sebastian. Few days ago I met a girl that I can’t get out of my ind. She was so beautiful,, her mind was so beautiful. Even after few words spoken to each other I felt like I was in love. I knew I wanted to see her more and talk to her more. But it wasn’t possible. Before I could even find out her name I was pulled away for interview. And that was the last i saw of her. It really was killing me inside that I didn’t know her name or any information just so I could find her. As I was thinking about her Sebastian came to tell me it was time to go. While we were walking to the interview I kept looking around in hopes to see her. Maybe luck would shine my way and I would see her again.

“Looking for her?”Anthony asked as we got closer to the first stop. Not saying anything just nodding I walked. “You know it’s a long shot for you to find her. Especially here.” i knew he was right but I wasn’t going to give up. I didn’t even notice that the interview had began until Anthony pushed my arm. “Dude” i pulled my attention back and apologized. It was one after another and jut I still couldn’t find the strength to really concentrate. I watched as Anthony answered his question when something caught my eye. I blinked many times just to be sure as to what I was seeing. I saw her. It was her.

Without realizing it I whispered ”It’s her” moving my head around just to get a better look. Anthony heard me and did the same “Where? Are you sure?” i was. it was her. I could see her beautiful eyes from the distance. Knowing I couldn’t just run away from the interview I kept my eyes on her. Saw her smile, heard her laugh and just for a second I turned away to answer something and when I looked back, she was gone. “Oh no” I said looking around trying to see where she went.

“Go” Anthony said to me, seeing my panic. “She’s there”he pointed at the other side. She really was there. “We are done here. Go before she leaves for good.” but I didn’t move just looked at her. “Chris. Go. I can see that you are scared, but trust me you really like this girl and something like this shouldn’t be missed. Go.”He gave me a push and I was on my way to her. I felt my heart beat going crazy. Then she turned and looked at me. She gave me a smile that made made me smile. and then I was right in front of her.

“Hi” she said to me still smiling.I couldn’t believe I was really standing in front of her. So many things i wanted to say to her yet non of them came out of my mouth. I watched her touch my arm “Are you okay?”she giggled. Oh that made my heart skip a beat. I pulled myself out of the space I was lost in and finally spoke

“Yeah, sorry. Hi” smiling at her I got the courage i needed and said what I really wanted to say. “I know it’s going to sound weird. Especially since I don’t know your name, but I haven’t stopped thinking about you. I would really like to take you out on a date. If you want of course.” my first thought was that sheļl laugh at me. I don’t know why. Maybe because she was just smiling at me. A soft giggle came out of her beautiful lips.

“I would love to go on a date with you. And my name is (Y/N).”

“Beautiful name for a beautiful girl” i thought i said it to my self but I guess when I’m with her I don’t control myself that well. (Y/N) smiled and thanked me for the uncontrolled compliment i had said. We exchanged numbers and set the date. As I walked way I looked at her one more time, she was standing there looking at her phone with a smile one her face. At that moment I made promise to my self to always make her smile. Such a beautiful smile should be hidden.

Recently I was thinking about how designs often are made with arbitrary rules and how I could break them if I wanted to and no one can stop me! So what I did was create a giant monster lady without any secondary/tertiary sexual characteristics that would scream “girl” that has psychic power but doesn’t use any purple at all in her palette!

Anyway this gal is of a species of psychokinetic warriors. To test their abilities they tend to go to planets with smaller lesser creatures and mess up the place.  They have no eyes but its a pretty minor issue because they can also “mind hack” other creature and use their senses. Luckily for everyone’s sake this ability can’t be used over long distances.

I don’t know what her name will be just yet but personally wise she’s as tough as she looks but is honestly less aggressive than playful. Most damage she does for shits and giggles rather than trying to be the strongest around. As a last point she exists in the same canon as my aliensona. So enjoy!

Hi I left a comment on your fic about nami and tulin meeting and I still feel strongly about the potential energy of their friendship thanks for the good work I believe in you

Gaaaah I’m gonna have to write more for these two!! So I wrote their first meeting but gosh darn it they’re going to have many adventures together I can feel it in my bones. 

Quick note considering my last prompt: at any time frame where Nami refers to Link by his name instead of Papa, it is before Link and Sidon get married. 

Link and Sidon are dating by this point~ :D 


Nami shivered and took a deep breath through her mouth. 

She was learning quickly that she hated the cold.

Sure, winters in the Domain could get rough, especially when the waters froze over but class wasn’t canceled because the waters were still swimmable. But cold water and cold air were too entirely different things, especially at high altitudes. 

But it was the furthest Minami had also traveled as well, and when Dad was sent to meet with the elder of the Rito at the same time that Link was tasked to rendezvous with the Champion of Vah Medoh, they both saw it as an opportunity for Nami to see another part of the world that she hadn’t been to before.

Of course, for two Zora to traverse all the way to the Tabantha Frontier, extensive preparations and precautions needed to be taken. Dad and Minami were both outfitted with thick parkas and special insulated armor. It was also the first time Nami had worn pants and shoes and she had to admit that Daddy looked really silly in boots and mitten with the end of his tail tucked under a scarf. 

But the biggest thing Nami was having trouble with, however, was how the clothes she now wore made it hard for her to breathe since her gills were covered underneath several layers. Dad and Link kept telling her to breath through her mouth, but that was much easier said than done and hard to get used to.

“Sweetheart, are you alright?” Dad asked, turning back to her as she climbed the rest of the way up the hill. “Do you want me to carry you?”

“No, I’m okay,” Nami insisted. She had made it this far, why stop now?

Chang’e Guāng Zhī Huā Faceclaim Zhang Ziyi in House of Flying Daggers


Made some quick updates about Chang’e! Finally found a Faceclaim and got to elaborate a bit better her backstory, which I’ll toss down quickly here ^^

Small note, she won’t mind how you’ll call her, she’s fine with both her names or simply nicknames x)

In her battles against the Warlords in China, she fell eventually for one who showed no interest to be like the others, instead he wanted to find some truths and a peace to his torments linked on his revival. Their relationship begun with a “If you won’t conquer me, I won’t conquer you”, then it softened in modest trades, ending up in actual sharing of favours and mutual helps against the House of Devils’ settlements scattered in Old China.
At last they finally opened each other, and the step to be lovers wasn’t too far from that point.

In the meantime, no matter the Dark Age was in full throttle in those years, she decided to timidly restart the production of tea, silk and rice, plus other minor, but still important goods, in order to let survive the population saved in the areas of Jiangnan and Jiangbei. Only after, when she got the news that the Last City survived the Twilight Gap assault, she decided to open up a small commerce of exchange of these goods to feed and clothe the Citizens, at the major price to ler her rule and protect those areas of China. It was a good compromise as she showed to maintain her promises of sustainment and protection well.

About the Warlord, I have yet to settle up his fate, the ways depends if someone here wants to make a Canon Ship with her!
If there’s someone, her lover was slain by the Iron Lords; if there’s none, he is still alive and keeping his leadership in Beijing.
I am open up with this! Just let me know in Chat and we might settle up something, or else I am also fine to see her together with him ^^

Small curiosities! I’ve added that Chinese Painting for a simple reason, the meaning of her name, it’s the name of a Chinese Goddess linked with the Moon, curiously is linked also with the Jade Rabbit… hm, maybe she owns that weapon too x)
The pictures instead shows the two Subclasses that she has now and she will have in the next title, Bladedancer and poledancerArcstrider ^^

anonymous asked:

There really needs to be a discussion on how quick this fandom (all factions) is to idolize anyone who is in close proximity to the boys. Family, friends, beards, associates, colleagues, etc...with very little information about them. And the subsequent fall from grace many of these people have within the eyes of the fandom when some shitty thing they've done or said comes to light. And then the fandom gets collective amnesia and pretends we never liked them to begin with OR worse, ignores it.

agreed. and we’re all guilty of it or have all been guilty of it at some point so it’s not like it’s exclusive to only one section of the fandom (as you pointed out) but yeah it’s dangerous and in a lot of cases, it’s really weird.

what's the history behind valenna ? i mean from reading the anon messages doesn't sound too good but i thought val always treated women with respect 👀 but i just wanna know what went down that everyone's so against this happening again

they were up to something after s18 and then he got caught up in j.anelskiy, and then they were up to something again last year and they ended things last summer and everyone always thought that jenna was more into him than he was her but jenna more or less confirmed it in a blog post a while after they broke up where she said she’d been in “toxic” and “one-sided” relationships. she didn’t name him and people will swear up and down that she didn’t mean him but based on what she wrote and the timing of it i def think it was ab him. in her blogs around then she was also talking about how she was in such a better place with her health, happiness, mindset, and so on, that she’d finally rid herself of so many of the things that were keeping her down, including this relationship. so people are against v.alenna as a relationship bc they kind of had some inklings that things weren’t quite right in terms of their dynamic and then jenna made a big deal about how much better off she was after she’d ended the relationship and turned other aspects of her life around too and then prior to s24 you could tell that they were exploring things again so people thought it seemed phony, hypocritical, ridiculous, whatever, that she went back after all of those proclamations she made. and prior to s24 it was more of the same where hints were coming from jenna and not val so it seemed headed down the same path.

TalesFromThePharmacy: Customer was mad because she paid $100 more for her [cash] Suboxone script than she normally does

The other day my pharmacy received a phone call that got passed on to me because the tech didn’t want to deal with it. Here’s how it went: SP: My name is so-and-so and I want to know why my script cost more than usual yesterday when I picked it up.

Me: Ok. (Looks patient up). Looks like it was ran on our store discount card, whereas last time it was ran on a Suboxone-specific savings card. Let me try to do a reversal and run it on the savings card to get you a refund. (Receives a reject that the card was not eligible to be used on the date of service, but the patient could have used it the day after)

Me: Ma'am, it looks like the card you normally use wouldn’t pay for your mediation until today.

SP: WELL THEN WHY DID THE PHARMACIST TELL ME IT WOULD GO THROUGH?

Me (while being cut off several times): Because it DID go through. When you asked if a prescription “will go through” on a controlled medication, you’re typically asking if it’s too early to fill or not. So it did go through, on the legal end.

SP (still yelling): So you’re telling me that you just decided to run it on a different card? And now I paid $100 extra because no one told me that. You guys need to learn how to word things differently. Now I need to come up with the money for 2 weeks of medication and you’ve put me in a whole other situation. (This rant continues for a few minutes about how she is going to be able to afford it)

Me: Next time you need to double-check which discount card the pharmacy uses when you’re copay seems higher than normal.

SP: Well you need to pay more attention to how you word things. I don’t understand why they told me it went through when it didn’t. Now I have to work to make enough money to pay for more etc. etc.

Me: Ma'am I don’t know what you want me to do. You payed for the medication yesterday knowing how much it was and are just now calling about it. I can’t reverse the claim and rebill it today because that’s fraud. So please tell me what you want me to do.

And then she hung up. I don’t understand why she wouldn’t have said something at the register when the price was $100 more than usual.

She Never Stopped Smiling

by reddit user Pippinacious

Fly was an odd kid, even by odd kid standards. I met her in sixth grade, when our alphabetically ordered last names landed us in adjacent seats, and she turned to look at me with a cheerful, gap toothed smile.

“Hi!” She said.

“Hi.” I replied quietly.

I was shy and intimidated by my first day in middle school, but she wasn’t the least bit nervous.
