can i have this again

On Keith and leaving Allura behind

One thing I’ve always wanted to clear up is the ‘Keith is cold-hearted’ thing. I can see how the scene of him being ready to leave Allura behind might come across as such, to quote Hunk: “Keith, that’s cold-hearted even for you.” 

But that is not how things actually are. Let me explain why he acted the way he did back then, because Keith has had just as many emotions about it as everyone else. 

Keith is rational, observant and tends to state stuff exactly as it is, with all facts lied out to make sure that everyone gets the whole picture. (see: how he explained his board in s1e1, how he argues with Lance at the beginning of s1e3 etc.) He has been known to accept critique pretty well - he actively tries to work on his temper (“patience yields focus”) and accepted that Lance’s plan was better than his in s1e7. In turn, however, he expects people to treat him the same way. If there isn’t any evidence to contradict it, he takes things people tell him at face value and accepts them as facts. It is one of the reasons him and Lance clash often, Keith can be found constantly correcting Lance’s statements and Lance doesn’t appreciate that. 

This is coupled with his rational personality. I have no doubt that part of that comes from having been forced to grow up without a family and people to comfort him when he was feeling lost, he has had to deal with reality screwing him over quite a lot of times already. He is extremely cautious and protective of his friends when a possible threat appears (see: how he placed himself in front of the team when Klaizap appeared in s1e2), probably exactly because he knows that when they are gone, they are gone. That happened to his dad, that happened to Shiro. 

And now he thinks the same thing has happened to Allura.

It is not that he doesn’t want to help her - because he does. He really does, he even said so himself. (And he wasn’t lying. We all know that Keith is an absolutely horrible liar.) In his mind, there were four facts battling with one another: 1) I want to save my friend; 2) “the ship that is headed to Zarkon’s central command?” “the place that’s way too dangerous for us to attack?” (a direct quote from an exchange between Hunk and Keith from s1e10. Keith had accepted that information a fact); 3) we are fighting against an enemy we know next to nothing about; and 4) I am responsible for the entire universe and I can only protect it with Voltron, for which Allura technically isn’t essential. 

So he stands there and goes through all the facts. And he comes to the - absolutely logical - conclusion that it is too dangerous to go to Zarkon’s headquarters. He could lose even more friends. He could lose the universe’s only hope. So he does what he always does: suppress his emotions for the greater good. He did that there, he did it when he decided to give up the blade in s2e8.

But then the others turn against him. We can’t see his face when they begin to vehemently protest against his statement-

-but I have no doubt that it would be serious and reflective. The backlash would have made him reconsider the conclusion he had come to. Because that’s what he does when he faces critique: take a step back and reevaluate. Obviously, fact 2) wasn’t quite right. [Also note how open his body language is, he is more than willing to discuss this.] 

And once the execution of their plan starts, which means an actual chance for getting his friend back, he is right at the front of the group again. 

Keith isn’t cold-hearted. Not at all. Does this look like the face of a cold-hearted person to you?

Because that is the face he made when he came to the conclusion that it would be too dangerous to save Allura. He is not happy about it. He genuinely believed that she was already lost and they were about to condemn the universe for a suicide rescue mission. If there is anything he can do to save his friends, he will do it. Like, seriously - he had never seen Zarkon before that episode. For all he knew, Zarkon could be 5ft tall, wield magic and be immortal. But as soon as he saw a normal-sized Galra in armor, Zarkon suddenly became less of an abstract concept and more of something that he has an actual fighting chance against. Look at how his attitude towards him changed in season 2, at the end of it he volunteered to infiltrate Zarkon’s base on his own!  

(Also. He was the one that asked Allura if she was sure that she wanted to come with them: “I’m sorry, princess, did you say ‘we’?!” in s1e10. He was worried for her. There is no way he didn’t want her back.)

Keith constantly watches out for the greater good. It’s what he told Pidge when she wanted to leave to go look for her family - “everyone in the universe has families!” - and what he did when he gave up finding out about his past in the Trials of Marmora. He pushes his own emotions down because he genuinely believes one person’s life and/or comfort isn’t worth putting the entire universe at risk. And that does not equal being cold-hearted.

tl;dr: Keith has had perfectly valid reasons why he hesitated to go on the rescue mission. He wanted her back just as much as everyone else. He is not a cold-hearted asshole.

373 followers and it’s all thanks to you mates!!

I’m so lazy that I check the number of followers quite seldom but seeing this made me almost fell from chair. Needless to say that I’m incredibly happy to receive so much positive feedback and followers during the past months from you fellow fans (not only here but also at the rp-blog @luffyasksandanswers​​)

But why suddenly going nachos about a uneven number? Well as you can see from the content of the blog I’m a enthusiastic shipper and this number happens to be linked to my other OTP Sanji and Nami because 373 is their shipname in japanese (more about Sanami and numbers here by @sanjiafsincedayone​​). 

Since I (honestly) never expected to have this many followers and this came suddenly I don’t even know what to give you guys as a “thank you gift”. I’m still working on SaNami in the New World pt. 4 -  Whole Cake island (part of a serie written with fellow mate @pernanegra​) but waiting can feel like forever so I’ll drop a list about my Sanami-related posts which you can read meanwhile :) !

These and rest of the One Piece related posts are listed also in the navigation-page (which needs updating I know). Well the title sums up the thoughts so one more time thanks a big bunch for every follower and mate for patience, comments, likes, reblogs and sharing thoughts about OP without to mention how cool it’s been to get to know you guys via the chat. Have a nice weekend and stay awesome mates!! \o/

봄날 / spring day - bts (lyrics)

Marichat May Day 25: Akumatized Chat Noir

Im part of the peolpe who believes that instead of transforming a superhero, the akumatization is mostly painful than anything, since it’s another type of magic, corrupted magic, that’s trying to posses the holder.

also i wanted to play with some effects xD

p.s.: never let me look into my other fandoms because i’ll always put a wink to them

kageyama bros fight!

Do not take, share or search for photos of BTS wherever they are.

Please, let them enjoy this small break they have. Do not let Bon Voyage happen again.

If you see photos - do not share them. If you see the members - do not share their location, take their photo or follow them.


Please. Do not be a part of the reason as to why they feel they always have to stay in their hotel.

If they wanted to share their location with the fan base, they would have. Right now, I do not feel they want this information to be known. Thus, whatever the reasons are, I feel we can respect that.

supergirl season one appreciation week → day three: why you love season one

Boi, can you believe it’s already been a whole year since Horikoshi saved my life

pfffbfbbbttbtt

yes hello i just wanted to remind u all that allura is amazing and i love her

(Jee illustriously illustrated by the incredibly talented @blesstale)

Let me lay this out real quick

This is my son Bellamy Blake:

As you can see, he has a fairly large sized bruise that covers a good ¼ of his face from getting clocked by an Azgeda warrior during his mission in 4x02. 

This is the beautiful Clarke Griffin:

Her mother was a doctor on the Ark and still is one on the Ground, and has no doubt taught her daughter basic first aid. She also has had a lot of experience dealing with injuries because of the many her friends have sustained throughout the entire story. She is, in conclusion, reasonably capable of tending to other people’s injuries.

It is already canon that the two have a deep love for each other (whether you’d like to view it as romantic or platonic, it is there, it’s romantic btw). They have already shown concern over each others’ injuries before this point in time (ex: the hand wrapping in 3x11).

In other words

IF THIS NEXT EPISODE DOESN’T HAVE CLARKE LOOKING AT BELLAMY’S INJURED FACE WITH CONCERN AND HAVE HER GENTLY PLACING HER HAND ON WHERE HE WAS HIT AND LOOK LOVINGLY INTO HIS EYES WHILE ASKING IF HE IS OK I WILL LITERALLY PROTEST AT CW HEADQUARTERS
