child-young

Old Paladins adopted New Paldains

I’m surprise nobody had come with this yet, so I’m gonna go ahead and do it.

Ok, so imagine this au where Zarkon and Honvera didn’t get corrupted and the old paladins close the rift. Zarkon and Honvera settle down and have Lotor.

Blaytz got married to the galra servant

Now I’m gonna use @calamarisunshine theory about Kolivan being a love child between these two. So, child Kolivan!

Around that time, the paladins went on various missions with their lions outside their solar system and each adopted an alien child that they found. Of course Blaytz would be an ideal parent since the Blue Lion is known to be the mother lion

First to be adopted is lance. When Blaytz was sent to the mer people world, he was almost brainwash by the plant but was save by a young  child named Lance. Lance lend Blaytz to the other fighters. Blaytz end up saving the mer people from the plant. Everyone is happy and celebrating with their friends and family, except Lance.

When Blaytz ask where his family is, here come the langst. Lance’s family was  sacrifice to the plant monster. Blaytz decide to adopt lance as his own.

Next to be adopted is Hunk. Grygan went to Balmera to help the Balmerans with something. There, he found a balmeran child named Hunk crying  next to two bodies crushed by boulders. Those were his parents and the rocks fell on them during battle. Taking pity and guilt, Gyrgan adopted Hunk.

Next up is Pidge and Matt. They’re two olkari prodigies who help aid Trigel and Olkarion in ending their tyrant king reign. When Trigel ask where their parents are, they revealed that their parents was executed by the king for rebellion. Trigel took them in as their own.

Shiro is next. Zarkon discovered this human child within a cage during an attack on pirates. He was covered in bruises and had one of his arm chop off. Zarkon took Shiro back to his home and gave him a new arm and heal him up. Zarkon ask Shiro where he’s from and Shiro say that he doesn’t remember. Zarkon decided to adopt him.

Last to be adopted is Keith.  Alfor found him in the market being caught stealing food. Alfor pay for the food for the half galra boy. When he ask Keith where his parents are, Keith say they were killed by some galra purists. Alfor adopted the boy right then.

Now imagine all of the shenanigans the old paladins and their children would be in.

All of the new paladins would bond over their deceased parents and all that they had been through before they were adopted. Lance, Hunk, Pidge, and Matt would be the best of buds. Shiro and Keith at first didn’t bond with the rest of them and just stick with each other. Of course, Lance manage to bring them all closer.

Allura, Lotor, and Kolivan would be jealous of Keith, Shiro, and Lance because they no longer got all of their parents’ attention. But once they learn about their past and start to hang out more, they become the protective older siblings squad of their younger siblings and the other new paldains.

Alfor would be the goofiest dad and constantly try to impress his kids. He would teach Keith his sword skills. Blaytz would teach lance some of his skills, such as flirting, and help lance with his shootings. Gyrgan and Hunk would bond over food and Hunk would totally be impress about Gyrgan being a leg. Trigel would be the #1 supportive mom of her 2 prodigies and help in their experiments, and pranks too! Zarkon, Honvera ,and Lotor would help Shiro with his nightmares. Zarkon’s family will give him a softer side.

Coran would be the best and proud space uncle of all of the new paldains. He would constantly tell them stories his and their parent adventures, including the embarrassing ones. 

Now here come the shipping.

Since Lance doesn’t have legs, he had to be carried. Usually it’s by Kolivan, Hunk, his two dads , or one of the old paladins. When Keith or Lotor got old enough, they help carry Lance. Now usually he thanks the people that hold him with kisses, so you can imagine the fluster looks of Keith and Lotor. Pidge and Matt end up building a device that enable Lance to walk. But they had to constantly fix it because 2 certain pinning boys ( Keith and Lotor of course) keep breaking it out of jealously.

Matt and Shiro get along great , and Shiro start to engage in him and his sister pranks. When Shiro started to get muscles, well, let say Pidge constantly tease Matt for drooling and staring.

Of course, Matt got his revenge when Pidge start to like a certain Balmeran for his brain and kindness.

During a diplomatic mission at Balmera, Allura meet Shay, and she’s immediately smitten by the giant rock women.

When the old paladins find out about their smitten children and their crushes, they immediately start to ship all of the pairs and aid their kids in winning their crushes’ hearts.

Well, except Blaytz, Coran, and Kolivan. Blaytz may be a flirty person, but he’s overprotective as well. He and Kolivan warn Keith and Lotor to stay away from Lance. Of course that won’t stop the two pinning boys. 

Feel free to use this au however you want. Just make sure to credit me please.

I like to imagine I'd go to a child's soccer game to cheer on some random young child relative of mine & I'd see you and I'd say "hey boi where yo child at?" And you'd say "oh, I'm just here for my niece" & I'd be like "what a coincidence my sugar husband just died of mysterious causes & I need this bussy busted" & you'd say "this is a child's soccer game. Please leave" & I'd weep & dab the tears away with my scarlet silk robe and make a scene and the FBI would drag me away as I cursed in French

Aweeeee! This is so cute!


“Three nights? But my love our child is still so young He/She still needs his/her mother”

“Genji I promise you’ll be okay. Your an amazing father. you got this” 

“I-Well thank you darling but I am still new to this father business” He says as you hug him. Kissing his chin and giggling 

“I promise. You will be more then okay. Our baby loves you so much Genji” 

“I know but do you really trust me with our child alone for that long” 

“Genji I swear” you laugh “I gotta go. Remember you’ll be okay sweetie I promise” You say kissing him before rushing out the door 

Genji didn’t let his baby out of his sites for a moment. Aside from when he/she was napping. Even moving the babies crib to your guys room just so he is closer to his child 

“Genji. Tell me again why you brought your child to the meeting?” Winston asked looking a hilariously confused 

“My child takes priority Winston. Now then. Let us continue on with the meeting” 

“Uhhh…Very well” 


“Well love. I think your doin great with the whole single dad thingy” 

“I’m not single Lena. Its just for the next few days” Genji says holding his child after a meeting. Wearing a goofy shirt that says Number 1 ninja dad

She laughed and ignored him going right back to playing with his baby 


“Well mama comes home tomorrow little one. So would you say I did good on my own?” Genji asked cradling his sleepy child 

The baby giggled a little and smiled gripping his finger 

“I shall take that as a yes” He smiled kissing the child’s forehead

Hey guys, so there’s this blog going around called g/e/m/k/o/r/p/s.

Long story short, the blog’s dedicated to depicting the Steven Universe gems as racist, fascist “gem supremacists” that hunt and kill humans. The mod uses Nazi imagery (made particularly clear when you see Pearl made to mimic Hans Landa from Inglourious Basterds), combined with the German and English terms evocative of WW2-era Nazis, and art depicting myriad offensive things, ranging from blatant racism, all the way to the murder of a young child (twice!).

Before you say it, no, this is not just me being a socialist, free speech-hating censor trying to stifle the internet’s artistic creativity. Poor taste aside, the content on their blog is explicitly against this website’s ToS.

If you look at all of this together, it’s very clear what the mod’s intent is. They’re seeking attention through intentionally shocking and offensive, gross content. I realize that that’s exactly what this post is giving them - attention - but I’m hoping to get the blog shut down before it gains too much steam.

If you want to help, just report the blog. You’ll need to link to one or more posts from the blog in your report in order for it to validate, but honestly, you could pick almost any of the posts from their blog as justifiable grounds for reporting.

This shit is not okay.

Warning: The blog has seriously graphic and potentially upsetting content on it.

Ok so this is not this request because it has nothing to do with this. I’m going to write another idea for this but I wanted to let you all know this is still @the-shadow-of-atlantis fault.

Annabella is @the-shadow-of-atlantis


Emotion.

If there was one word to describe Jennifer O’Neal it was Emotion. Ever since she was a young child Jennifer had always felt things so deeply, so strongly. It was what drew others to her and what tore her apart when they left her.

Which is why when her parents disappeared, a plane of people just missing in the air, her cousin Annabelle was ready to support her.

But when Jennifer and Faith came to Gotham the older sister was oddly calm. Standing by the Waynes during the funeral, three empty graves sitting side by side, A mother, a father and a best friend.

Once the crowds had cleared Jen informed them she would be gone for a few weeks getting an apartment ready for her and Faith to live here in Gotham. Before the accident, her family had planned on making their second home outside of Washington D.C. their permanent home but now Jennifer thought it would be better if they stayed close to their uncle and cousin.

“She wants me to go but help move the stuff from their house… could you help her?” Annabella asked Dick. “I think Faith needs me here.”

So here they were. The mini road trip to the small two-story house just outside the country’s capital. The trip up consisted of many side trips down memory lane while throwing pork rinds at each other.

“Do you remember when Stacy freaked out because she found out these weren’t vegetarian?” Jennifer asked laughed looking over the greasy snack. Dick shook his head at the memory of the ditzy blonde freaking out over her odd obsession the week earlier.

“Didn’t she throw the bag at Tea”

“Yeah but that was after Tea called her a fucking idiot.”

Their laughter slowly dissolved as Dick pulled the car into the driveway. They would be meeting with movers in an hour or so to pack up what they wanted and give away the rest. It seemed as if a dark cloud had fallen over the mood as Dick parked.

Dick had only been there twice as a kid. He had loved the quaint yet homey feel that had always seemed to surround the O’Neal’s small family. It had always been what he had imagined a real family would look like, how they would live. Minus the bodyguard Kyo who had been with the family since before the girls had been born.  

Now the home now felt empty. Filled with echoes of the past around every corner. Jen walked wordlessly through the home, her fingertips brushing against the walls as if greeting an old friend. Her eyes taking in everything around them as they walked through the entryway, dining room, kitchen, and into the large living room.

A large white fireplace stood in the center, framed pictures hung above it. Smiling pictures of memories that seemed more like dreams than realities.

“Wow look at us,” Dick said picking up one of the pictures, one from them as kids at the museum. He chuckled lightly turns to show Jen when he realized that she wasn’t next to him.

“Jen?” He turned to see her on the floor of the entryway to the living room. Curled up in a tight ball just staring at the floor. Quickly he knelt down next to her. “Jen? Jen what’s wrong.”

“I can’t do this.’ she ran her fingers through her hair, “How am I going to do this?” she asked more the four walls of the home than him. Some ghost that seemed to be floating through this haunted home of happy memories.

“I… I just can’t believe it,” she whispered her eyes still fixed on the photo. “Like… they aren’t gone… like…like…”

“Like they will just turn the corner at any moment and there they will be. Just as you remembered them? Smiling, happy.”

Jen nodded her eyes turning to his. Bright with unshed tears, held back with the shock, as it all sunk in. Dick was sure his heart would break for her in that moment. Watching as reality truly hit her.

Her parents, her life as it had been, was truly gone.

“What am I supposed to do?” she asked him again.

“I don't’ know” the truth.

“What did you do?”

“I… Honestly?”

“Yes.” she leaned forward, so close he could feel her breath on his face. As if she could breathe in his secret. Give her key to going back to being happy. That was all she wanted. To be happy again.

Dick sighed taking her hands in his, running his thumbs over her palms. Part of him wanted to just say her name. Tell her how she had been so instrumental in his healing. But part of that would be a lie. Because while she was a part, she wasn’t the only reason. It was a million names of people who he had met after the death of his own parents. All the people that had become more than just faces in a crowd, turning from bystanders to even more than just friends.

People who had become his family.

“I focused on my living family.”

—-

The music seemed to pulse through the whole mansion as they walked in. Alfred greeted them with a thin smile as a Tim sat a few feet away, a mug of coffee in his hand.

“Hi”

“Hi, I’m Jennifer, Faith’s sister I don’t think we have officially met yet.”

“Tim Drake, your sister is in the dance studio.”

“Yeah, she does that when she’s stressed.” Jen nodded, “Nice to meet you!” she called over her shoulder as she walked down the hall meeting her Cousin half way.

“She’s been in there for hours.” Annabella mumbled holding a bottle of water, “I was going to see if she needed something.” Gently Jen smiled taking the bottle from the Wayne girl. Her whole being filled with confidence and purpose.

“Thanks, I’m going to talk to her.” Slowly she opened the door to reveal her small sister dancing across the floor. Jumps and leaps eyes hard against her own reflection pausing only to perfect a movement before continuing. So focused she didn’t even notice her sister until Jen grabbed her arm spinning her around.

“Je…” Her older sister cut her off pulling her into a hug.

“I’m here Faith. I’m sorry… but I’m here now,” she whispered holding her close. Faith froze for a moment before hugging her back suddenly letting out a soft sob she didn’t realize she had been fighting. With each movement, she had been fighting. Fight away that sorrow that was hiding right behind the music she had been filling herself with. Using the pulsing sound as a way to block it all out. Pushing away that darkness with every leap, every spin.

“I love you” Jennifer whispered kissing her forehead as tears began to spill from the younger girl's’ eyes.

“I….I…”

“I know”

From the doorway, Annabella walked slowly up to Dick who was watching.

“Thank you.”

“Huh?”

“You know,” Annabella said putting her hand on her brother’s arm.

“If there’s any definition to being perfect, you’re perfect at being yourself. There is no such thing as ugly. I was taught as a young child by my parents and family to love myself. I just focus on being a good person. It’s important to find out who you are and love who you are. No matter what you’re dealing with, it’s so much harder and more draining and so much more exhausting to be constantly pretending to be something that you’re not. It’s very freeing when you’re just like, ‘Yo, I’m just going to do me!’”

GoT S07E05 Thoughts

Fuck me. 

This might have been my least favourite episode to date and we had Gendry!!! Okay, in all fairness, it wasn’t a bad episode. There was just one particular conflict that I am not looking forward to seeing continue. 

And no, it’s not Jon3rys. I couldn’t give two shits about that right now. 

But let’s begin, shall we? 

For anyone who still believes Dany to be a good person, I honestly suggest going to an optometrist or retaking high school English because how much more obvious can this show get? I didn’t get to write down her full speech, but following this:

“I’m not here to murder…”

With this: 

“Bend the knee and join me or refuse and die”

You’re kind of a hypocrite and a really obvious one at that. War is horrible, I get it, and good people do atrocious things in war, but that’s why we, as modern somewhat enlightened (although questionable) human beings, have war trials. People may die in war, as that is inevitable, but there are certain acts that no decent human should perform even in the midst of war. 

I know I’m quoting Wikipedia here, but whatever: 

Examples of war crimes include intentionally killing civilians or prisoners, torture, destroying civilian property, taking hostages, perfidy, rape, using child soldiers, pillaging, declaring that no quarter will be given, and serious violations of the principles of distinction and proportionality, such as strategic bombing of civilian populations.

Do you think a man as concerned with portraying war as a clusterfuck of morally grey characters would place an entitled figure with weapons of mass destruction which she uses indiscriminately, who commits war crimes, as the main protagonist? Do you think that is a good conclusion? And this is simply going by this episode and not the mess Dany made in previous seasons. 

She had Randyll and Dickon Tarly as her prisoners. There was no need to execute them, or at least no need to execute both of them. If she wanted to make an example, she could do so with Randyll, but fine, let’s concede the fact it had to be done. She burned them. A slow, horrible, agonising death. She could have beheaded them, as was customary in Westeros, but no, she chose to burn them because you know why? She likes it. She’s done it before. Burning her enemies gives her great satisfaction of her power, but also it spreads fear into the hearts of everyone there because she knows it’s the only way to get them to submit. 

If she allowed them the third option of becoming a prisoner of war, she knows they’d choose that over her. She even says so to Tyrion, because guess what? The people of Westeros doesn’t like or want Dany as their queen. Cersei may be a Grade A Bitch, but she’s the bitch they know. She doesn’t have dragons to burn those who defy her at her will. Yes, she’s powerful and could still easily execute people at a moment’s notice, but they’ve seen her humiliated and frightfully human when she was made to walk naked in shame through the streets of King’s Landing. She is human and she can fall. To them, Dany wields her power like a god and not the kind they worship out of love but out of fear. What kind of ruler is that?

And let’s talk about execution in general here. We’ve seen a lot of it over the seasons, and what we always come back to as a code of honour and true morality in this grey world is this quote from Mr Honour himself, Ned Stark: 

“The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword. If you would take a man’s life, you owe it to him to look into his eyes and hear his final words. And if you cannot bear to do that, then perhaps the man does not deserve to die.”

Mr Honour Jr aka Jon Snow lives by this rule like a life motto. If he must sentence a man to die, he will swing the sword himself, and throughout the show, we’ve seen Jon do this and we’ve seen how this weighs upon him, though the culprits may be deserving. Yes, people die in war and Jon has killed on the battlefield for survival, but executing someone is a deliberate act. It’s taking the life of a human while they are powerless to stop you. Jon doesn’t take any pleasure in it. 

But Dany… She’s executed people left, right and center. Burning them in the most unnecessarily cruel way because she can and because it instills fear. Feeding them to her dragons which is even worse. That’s not at her hand. That’s cowardly and sadistic. 

You know who else rules through fear? 

“The only way to keep your people loyal is to make certain they fear you more than they do the enemy.” 

Cersei bloody Lannister. 

Yeah, let that sink in. And let’s move on. 

Jon meeting Drogon. I hated this scene, although I see how it’s important in establishing Jon as a Targaryen. I didn’t like it mostly because I was still reeling Drogon burning the Tarly’s alive, and yet right after, they have Jon bonding with Drogon like some special moment. But do you think Jon would even touch that dragon if he knew the horrors Dany had made Drogon do? Or the fact that she just executed Jon’s best friend’s family in the worst way possible? Yeah, Sam hated his father, but he didn’t hate his brother. And no matter what animosity there was between them, Sam is a good person and he would still be devastated by this. Not to mention we weren’t given all those Dickon scenes where the man acted with honour, kindness and bravery, just to dismiss him as another faceless enemy of Dany’s. He was Sam’s brother and so much like Sam in a way. I think that’s what made his death in spite only knowing him for 2 episodes so heartbreaking. Also, why this meeting between Jon and Drogon made me angry and disgusted. 

Of course, it also establishes some Jon3rys bonding, although more so on Dany’s side. Let’s face it, the Dragon Queen wants familial Dragon D. Her heart eyes for Jon throughout this episode was at least 100x more convincing than previous episodes between them. Jon, on the other hand, has moments where he does seem to think Dany is alright, but I still don’t see the same level of affection on his end at all. As always, he has a one-track mind and that’s the war up North. 

And I’m sorry but Dany’s attraction towards Jon seems to predicate on her notion that he’s as heroic and powerful as her. I get that he is and that’s a wonderful reason to fall in love with him, but it’s still falling in love with the idea of him and not who he is, because who Jon is, isn’t that person. He doesn’t want to be a hero or to be powerful. I know Show Jon doesn’t go into this, but Book Jon wants a family, to settle in Winterfell and live peacefully and honourably like his pseudo father. But Dany will never know that about him because she doesn’t know him. Take her asking Jon about whether he got a knife to the heart, the wonder and awe in her eyes as she asks him. She wants him to be just like her (or her delusional perception of herself as some kind of prophesised princess that was promised). Jon is who she thinks she is and she’s attracted to that, which is basically some Game of Thrones version of Narcissus. When she realises he’s a Targaryen, she’ll feel threatened more than relieved she’s not alone, because if she thinks he’s her then she’ll think he wants the Iron Throne and he’s a threat to her ambitions. 

There’s a reason why after all that Gilly discovers the Rhaegar and Elia annulment (which btw is such bullshit but whatever). Jon has more right to the Iron Throne than she does. 

What’s funny about this episode that even Dany’s Second Biggest Fan struggles to support her. Yes, he still will, but that entire conversation he has with Varys just sounds a lot like he’s trying to convince himself that ‘yes, all rulers burn their prisoners like a sadistic pyroqueen, and yes, Dany is so not like her father’. And the fact that her own loyal subjects are questioning her? Yeah, tell me again how she’s a hero. 

Now onto the main reason why I hate this episode: StarkBowl. But oh ho, not Jon and Sansa StarkBowl but Sansa and Arya. 

I’ve always loved Arya. She was my favourite character for so many seasons, until I fell madly in love with Sansa, although Arya remains in my Number 2 spot. But this episode, I felt such a burning anger towards her. After all they’ve been through, everything Sansa’s endured, Arya would still hold her accountable for the beliefs Sansa held as a young child. She’s changed and grown so much on account of her experiences yet she will not lend her own sister the same courtesy. It pisses me off because what Arya is doing (judging and accusing Sansa of things she didn’t do or for who she was when she was a child) is exactly what Anti-Sansa’s have been doing for years. And her own short-sighted, ignorant inability to grasp that this woman before her is not the same Sansa she once knew has now led her to being manipulated and conned by Littlefinger. 

What I can only hope is that Sansa is smarter than Littlefinger. Bran wouldn’t give Arya the dagger if he foresaw Arya using it on Sansa. And I feel like it is so uncharacteristic of Arya, who has longed for so long to be reunited with her pack, to suddenly break down by childish prejudice at the first miscommunication. Sansa is far more cunning than anyone gives her credit for and I feel that this could all be a long orchestrated con on Littlefinger himself. Arya’s not that stupid. I refuse to believe she’s stupid enough to underestimate LF that way and let herself be manipulated so easily. I feel like perhaps that fight between Sansa and Arya was for LF’s benefit because it felt so contrived, so out of nowhere. I know this speculation is also heavily biased by my refusal to believe that the Starks would fight amongst themselves after all they went through, but I do believe that LF will die this season. It won’t be at Sansa’s hand but it will be because of Sansa’s machinations. 

Now, onto Gendry!!!!!

The happiest part about this hell episode because fuck, he’s so hot still. That cropped hair, those muscles, that smile… Yeah, swoon. He’s also hilariously bullheaded (very like a Baratheon) when he ignores Davos, hits those soldiers with his hammer and immediately tells Jon who he is. 

In fact, there was this instant spark of chemistry between Gendry and Jon in their first meeting. 

“You’re a lot leaner.”

“You’re a lot shorter.”

The gentle ribbing of two strangers is adorable, but it also reminds me of Ned and Robert’s first scene together:

“Your Grace.”

"You’ve got fat.”

Now the parallels of Jon as Ned is nothing we haven’t seen before. Gendry as Robert is newer, and Jon and Gendry together as Ned and Robert is so satisfying to watch. It also makes me, a trash shipper, so happy because you know if Jon is being paralleled as Ned in this episode, you know who is being paralleled as Cat? 

Yes, that’s right. Strong, confident Sansa, who was called only Lady Stark in the Great Hall meeting. 

I know I’m crazy but I’m still not worried about Jonsa. That scene in the Great Hall just kept making me think of Sansa as Penelope. She’s there holding onto Winterfell for Jon’s return as he gallivants off on his many missions and overcomes his many trials. She’s there, always loyal and true to him, and maintains his kingdom for him

Boatbang may happen (likely), but Odysseus also slept with Calypso, before ultimately returning to his lady love. I believe the same will happen for Jonsa. 

Also, who thinks Cersei’s not actually pregnant? I think she’s beginning to question Jaime’s loyalty and needs to firmly hold him in place. And I think when he finds out she’s not after all he’s done for, all the sinful things he did, it might make him plunge that sword into her heart prophecy-style. Or not a sword. I don’t know. 

But that’s it for me. My head hurts. My heart hurts. And I maintain that I hate this episode because fuck StarkBowl. And fuck disrespecting Sansa like that

He is someone who carries the stress of choreographing Seventeen songs, and has to make them noticeable, beautiful and catchy for people to remember. I cannot even imagine the mental strain that puts of him as choreography is such an essential part of Kpop and more so of Seventeen. However, Soonyoung doesnt complain. Instead, he takes all the stress and pain and uses it to work harder, only letting his emotions take control at certain crucial moments.

My mother’s mental illness was a tragedy, not a video game narrative device

My father passed away when I was 9 years old, leaving me with my mother as my only caretaker. I had noticed even as a young child that mom seemed to be a “little off” sometimes, but it wasn’t until shortly after my dad died that she began showing symptoms of schizophrenia in earnest.

I had to become a grown-up a lot faster than I should have — and when she had a particularly severe psychotic episode, it became my responsibility to keep her safe.

So I was excited to see that Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, a new game from indie developer Ninja Theory, planned to tell a story through the eyes of Senua, the protagonist who’s living with psychosis. The team even consulted mental health professionals to avoid portraying Senua as stereotypically “crazy,” instead trying to help players understand what it’s really like to live with a mental illness.

I ended up disappointed. Read more (8/15/17)

one of the reasons why medieval English history is so well recorded is because we have almost all the financial account books from that time-period. Like not only did they write all that stuff down but it all survives for various reasons like England not having the kind of massive upheavals that result in a bunch of old records being lost or destroyed and the climate in the area doesnt disintegrate records over time etc.  In addition to telling you stuff like “oh a bunch of castles were being built in this area” you also get more personal stuff like “a lot of purchases registered under Queen Eleanor of Provence have to do with books whose titles indicate they are romantic stories about chivalry”  

One of the cool things about historiography at least when it comes to the area of biography is how you can take that bare information about money expenditure and interpret it into a larger narrative. Like later on Eleanor’s son King Edward I showed a strong personal attachment to the myths of King Arthur. There are political aspects to him being an Arthurian enthusiasts but a lot of historians also theorize that his mother must have read to him stories about Arthur when he was a child since she was a heavy purchaser of chilvaric books and records also show she usually stayed in the same place as her child when he was young. Afaik there’s nothing that explicitly says “I, King Edward, was read Arthurian stories by my other when I was little” but its a very realistic conjecture given the evidence. Its a pretty small and minor example and you dont need all that creative to draw that connection but I think it works as an example of how history involves detective work and how you can draw out  relatable personable humans from rather dry sources and can understand a 13th century English king or 17th century Thai diplomat from the perspective of them being real people

Child marriage.

Girls as young as 13 can be married off to grown men to avoid statutory rape charges.

Daddy Dilemma!

Background: Nadarr (ME) a black dragonborn Paladin, D'ardaigh a pixie rogue, and Sandalius a human monk (splitting as DM for group reasons), are running a homebrew DnD 5e campaign where we are attempting to stabilize a Dwarven religious city that is being besieged by all manners of undead. The party was out in the farmland attempting to find supplies and survivors to bring back to the town center. By the end we found a cow, two dwarven children, and a dwarven baby, We were escorting them back when we found a third child. We play mostly 3rd person OOC, with the DM being the total story controller.

D'ardaigh (OOC): I roll to calm the child and ask them to come along with us. <Rolls Nat 20>

DM: You say “Hello–”, and are cut off by the child screaming “ADOPT ME!!!”, Roll to see if the child catches you.

<Rolls a 3 vs the DM 15> DM: the child hugs you close to her chest and holds onto you tight until the party gets into town

DM: You arrive in the town hall after a half hour of travel D'ardaigh you may attempt to escape.

<Rolls barely enough to escape>

DM: After a small struggle you escape and are chased by the young child who is yelling “MY PIXIE, MY PIXIE!”

Nadarr (OOC): I look to locate the other children’s parents and see about finding D'ardaigh. <Rolls and passes both challenges>

DM: You find the other children’s parents and look around to find D'ardaigh, you hear a commotion consisting of a child yelling “MY PIXIE, MY PIXIE!”

Nadarr (OOC): I walk up and see if i can find the child’s parents <Rolls 1>

DM: You look around the room and back to the child and think “Is this my kid?” Roll again to see if you can find the parents.

<Rolls 4> DM: You still cannot see the parents and now are desperately trying to remember if you have ever been with a dwarf before. Roll again,

<Rolls 17> DM: The Child looks around the crowd and points out a dwarven female and shouts “Mommy!”

Nadarr (OOC): I roll to see if I recognize her at all. <Rolls Nat 20>

DM: You fully recognize her as one of the women from your drunken days as a soldier, and she reveals to you that the child is indeed yours.

Nadarr(OOC and IC): (Complete stupified Silence)

DM: You are the Father!!

(Entire group has to stop playing due to laughter)

Now during Nadarr’s free time he will return to the city to visit his daughter.

Random scene came into my head:

Just imagine, it’s late at night and Damien thought Lucien was asleep. So he kept the bathroom door open to let out steam after a shower and was sitting on a closed toilet in a towel, prepping for his first T shot. He had yet to find a proper way to explain his new script to his young child. Cue lil’ Lucien, clad in his bat pjs, gasping as he stopped mid stride on his way to get water or something before running over with tears in his little eyes going “DADDY, NO! DRUGS ARE BAD.” Despite being startled, Damien couldn’t help but break out in a laughing fit.

honestly I would be completely satisfied if no Voltron ships become canon bUT Lance is confirmed to have had a big gay crush on all of the other paladins at some point in his life
Hunk? Childhood friends. Pining in middle school. A true failed friends-to-lovers aesthetic
Shiro came next, a huge celebrity crush tbh. He probably had posters in his room.
Then Keith at the Garrison. He’s…totally angrily in love at this point. Melodramatic abt it too, probably. Probably quotes Shakespeare at the mirror in frustration.
Then Pidge is in their flight squad. Many times Lance was found laying in Hunk’s bed, staring at the ceiling, and screaming “HES SO SMALL FISIFJSHDJSKNRUDUDAH”
Then when they’re in space Allura shows up and he’s ,, woagh ,,, a very beautiful space princess??? goals

Honestly I just feel like Lance is one to fall so easily like he legit develops a huge gross crush on everyone he meets.

I just think it’d be adorable especially to see their reactions when they find out ??
Hunk: oh yeah kinda figured tbh
Shiro: I’m…I’m sorry it’s nothing personal, but ?? you’re so young ?? a child ?? It just wouldn’t be appropriate….I appreciate you? You’re a valuable member of the team? But I ? (Lance: calm down shiro I know) I just ??? I’m.sorry ??? No ??
Keith: you…….what. i don’t….I can’t ….. you’re awful at coping with crushes aren’t u ….like in hindsight ,,, dude. d u d e.
Pidge, tears in her eyes: oh my….oh my god. [wheezing] you thought…I was…….cute …. [cackling on the ground] you thought I was cUTE (Lance: i know ,, let it go pls) yOU tHOUGHT I wAs A cUTE BOY
Allura: dude ,,

I just ,,,,,,,, yes
poor bb and his collection of one-sided crushes

Hey I almost made myself cry with this thought so I had to share it:

Imagine a Cybertronian, regardless of faction but I imagined Autobot, just tooling around in alt mode, checking out Earth and doing car stuff.

So they’re at an intersection, waiting for the light to turn green, and they overhear some humans talking. There’s a parent and their young child, and one of the parent’s friends. They’re talking about kids and work and stuff and the cybertronian starts tuning out and then the friend asks the kid “what do you want to be when you grow up?”

And it’s the first time the cybertronian has ever heard anything like that. They put their hazards on because their engine has just stalled while they think about that, just kinda going “wooow… what do I wanna be when I grow up? I never got asked that… i hope that kid gets their dream job.”

And also because I’m imagining this kid like four they look over and see the cybertronian and just kinda go [vehicle type], whatever the bot’s alt is and instead of saying no, the parent just laughs and goes “okay, you can be a [vehicle]”

And the cybertronian is like “i have to protect this planet”

Shoutout to Ebisu for being the Father Figure Yato needed

aka- Hot damn, I am rereading the entire Noragami manga to catch up and I am being hit yet again with Feels™

I absolutely love the relationship that grows between Yato and Ebisu (both pre- and post-reincarnation) because it fills a very important void that Yato has had throughout his entire life. A reasonable and caring father figure.

I mean, we ALL know Yato’s “Father” is a sack of trash that has literally caused every single aspect of Yato’s traumas and insecurities, but for the longest time, that is all Yato believed he had. He did what his Father told him because he wanted validation and praise. He needed and craved a reason for his existence. Even if that meant he had to go through with his Father’s depraved actions, he was willing to do so because he felt he had no other purpose. This is literally what he had been raised to do.

Even the presence of Hiyori and Yukine in his life didn’t completely stop him from following his Father’s orders. 

Yes, he wanted nothing to do with him by that point, but he still basically gave in when he was essentially kidnapped, going along with things because that is how it always, always was.

So when was it when he actually decided to take a stand for himself and truly attempt to make himself a new person?

When he was sent by his Father to rescue (read: frame) Ebisu from the Underworld.

Look at Yato’s face here.
He has never been told this in his entire existence.

He has only ever been told that his purpose is to kill. People will never love him because he is meant to destroy, to make people miserable. And here is this man who sees in him admirable traits and tells him he has the ability to become someone who can make others happy.

(Pssst, fun fact, the chapter that image was from is called “Like Father, Like Son”, and I am like 99% sure it is not referring to Yato and his “father”, but Yato and Ebisu)

Of course, only knowing that Ebisu is in the Underworld, Yato still thinks he’s rather shady, and yeah, the tables are turned a few times to make it look like Ebisu really was The Bad Guy, but when it is revealed that Ebisu has been trying to control Ayakashi/Phantoms for YEARS just to he could reduce the amount of suffering in the world, Yato is completely blown away.

Ebisu is shown to be a direct contrast to Yato’s Father. He cares for the people that Father wants to be culled. He cares for his Regalia, which Father sees as mere tools to destroy. He is willing to put his life down in order for Yato to be spared from the Underworld when it looks like he cannot escape.

And Yato makes a decision. His own decision, not his Father’s decision.

He was willing to take the fall in order to get Ebisu out because he knew Ebisu was a good person who deserved to live. He told Ebisu so. He told Ebisu to live, to enjoy the life he has instead of apathetically waiting for reincarnation.

So when all goes to shit and the heavens come and execute Ebisu under false accusations anyway (by the way, this makes me more inclined to like the anime version of events because I find it a little more poignant that Yato sees Ebisu die despite his best efforts), Yato takes it the hardest out of everyone. Because in spite of everything, he lost his new father figure, and he feels it is his fault.

And when the Reincarnated Ebisu doubts his old self because of how he was executed, Yato LEAPS to his defense.

IMMEDIATELY after this meeting, Yato changes his whole life around. He disowns Hiiro/Nora. He officially cuts things off with his Father. He decides he wants to be a god of Fortune to bring happiness to people. He puts his trust and his fate in the hands of Yukine, deciding to let his Blessed Regalia guide him.

But even still, Ebisu’s fate weighs heavily on Yato’s mind, and he feels incredibly guilty over his inability to save him. He tells Little Ebisu about his Father’s involvement with the previous Ebisu’s death, and fully expects Little Ebisu to hate him for it. But…

As he’s told this, Yato finally relaxes, feeling like he has gotten his father’s approval after all, even if it comes from the mouth of a young child. And then the manga just gives us this shot right after and I just…

HHHHHHHH, EBISU WAS A GREAT DAD TO YATO, OKAY? OKAY.
