submitted by @sushi-snek: Bee, Ginger, and Squeak the last three kittens. I believe they’re sisters but I’ve never sexed a kitten before. The others got adopted while I was out of town but they went to nice homes.
Children from some ethnic groups of southeast Asia (called Sea Gypsies) are capable of seeing clearly underwater and this skill wears off as they grow up. Some suggest that with practice any young person could achieve underwater vision. source
Anyway can we stop pretending that Shiro is the only paladin with trauma?
You can’t tell me that Lance doesn’t have nightmares about explosions, or that every once in a while he flinches at loud noises or suffers panic attacks after fights where there’s a lot of noise and things blowing up.
You can’t tell me hearing Shiro tortured over her comms unit and knowing it was her fault didn’t mess Pidge up in the slightest.
You can’t tell me Keith doesn’t have nightmares about being thrown into the dark and endless expanse of space, never to be found, and wakes up gasping for air, or that sometimes he hangs out in rooms without windows because he can’t bear looking out at the stars.
You can’t tell me Hunk doesn’t have nightmares about being obliterated and/or devoured by giant space worms (he has trouble with enclosed spaces now), or about watching his friends die because he couldn’t get to them in time.
You can’t tell me every single one of these kids won’t have sleepless nights, flashbacks, general anxiety, and panic attacks for MONTHS or YEARS after they’ve defeated the Galra Empire, that it won’t be difficult for them to readjust to life on Earth because the fear and the horror they experienced in space haunts them in their dreams and their family and friends just. don’t. get it.
If fandom can pull a hundred thousand things out of their butts from one screenshot, then we can certainly imagine the very real possibility that kids fighting an intergalactic war against an empire that’s been conquering for over 9000 years longer than they’ve been ALIVE are going to be traumatized.
