GW2 Fashion Week 3/X: Captain Aerna, Level 80, Tempest

Captain Aerna is among the more morally motivated pirate captains in Admiral Vaixx’s fleet. She’s ex-Consortium and their sworn enemy, a frighteningly powerful tempest, and a boisterous, scrappy, but clever, and all-around quite dangerous individual.

Skins:
Feathered Mantle
Trickster’s Vest
Primitive Handwraps
Trickster’s Leggings
Country Boots

Dyes: Midnight Blue, Peanut Butter, Black Cherry, Midnight Ice, Shadow Blue, Blood

Weapons: Lionguard Dagger, Poyaqui’s Noggin

Imagine an entire Star Trek show about a group of people who aren’t members of the bridge crew or one of the higher ups, and each week it’s them trying to do their job while crazy shit happens that they don’t really understand, like:

  • They get an announcement from their superior officers that goes “You may notice a child walking around the ship in a captain’s uniform. That is in fact the captain and is to be treated the same as always. We’re quickly working on a solution.”
  • A transporter mishaps causes the chief engineer to turn into a vulcan. They try not to stare at the ears, and move on.
  • Shots of them reacting to superior officers running through the background in the midsts of a red alert that they don’t know what it’s in response to.
  • “Did you hear the away team landed on planet that had five years pass before they got them back?” “Man, I’m glad I got skipped over for that assignment.”
  • Trying to figure out if the rumor that their commander got kidnapped by an alien race that considers them their god is true or just something made up by a bridge crewman to mess with them.
  • Popping in and out of existence and taking bets on which All Powerful race it is that’s doing it and why.
  • anytime Weird Shit happens on the ship it’s never explained. why are there chickens in the Jeffrey Tubes? why does the captain have a double? why did the chief medical examiner briefly turn homicidal? they don’t know and neither do you.
  • Each episode ends with them pouring one out for the crewmembers who died that week.

Times like these we need Star Trek more than ever. It’s not just a show. It’s a collection of ideals, and the most central of these ideals is simply “we are better than this. Humanity is better than this. And someday we’ll act like it.”

I’m so desperate for that hope right now.

Every letter, by @bleebug

A pen pal writing assignment connects a young Emma Swan with her best friend Killian Jones. Life sends many hardships their way, but their friendship remains solid through the years. As they both grow older and begin to realize what they want out of life, will their letters be enough?

I’ve kinda been waiting for the writers to bring this analogy back for four years (damn, that’s a lot!).

But, nope, let’s talk about the last scene (6x06) because I’m getting emotional.
When he hid the scissors and said to Emma that was doing some gardening…that’s actually TRUE.
Maybe he wasn’t doing that literally. BUT IT’S TRUE. He wasn’t lying! 
Let’s go a bit back, in season two: in the Rumple’s cell scene seems he’s talking about Emma. He mentions how she was once magical: full of hope and possibilities.
He genuinely believed that; that’s what he thought when they formed a connection during the beanstalk adventure when they let each other chink off a bit of their walls.
Until she betrayed him. It hurt him in a unexpected way; he risked his own life to help her; he had no intentions to abandon her, and he believed her…
Except—with the whole betrayal—you can see that he’s (still) willing to fix her, help her, to make her trust him, to win her heart, and “to do some gardening.”
So, he become a gardener. He become the water. 
However, he wasn’t talking about Emma. He was talking about himself, too.
Captain Hook was also once a young boy, full of hope and possibilities. “Dried up, dead, and useless” is pretty much what Killian became because of revenge.
He didn’t think anyone could ever care for him, and he never cared for anyone else in the last 300 years.
But look at that last gif at the lake nostos’s scene with Cora.
He’s smiling. It’s not just a smirk, or even a grin. This is a hopeful smile. This petrified bean reminded him that there were still possibilities for him. There was still hope, probably the first hope he’d had in 300 years.
It’s hard to deny that Emma brought Killian back to life, she regenerated him a new flame of hope, if only for the few hours they worked together on that beanstalk. She showed him he could care—and did care—only for her; enough to not give up on gardening.
Why else would he be looking so fondly at this dried up souvenir of his conquest? He wanted to bring this little, lost, beautiful and amazing woman, himself bean to life.
So, when he “lied” (*coughs: he didn’t!*) to her about the scissors: it was because he just wasn’t willing to see her dying. They haven’t come this far to get to this point, where he has to see her dying (and the other way), lose the hope and the possibilities.
If Emma ever dies, he’d become a “dried up, dead and useless” person. He’d be no one if Emma were gone. Just like it happened to her in last season.*i’m not crying you’re crying*
