Imagine…

If the Holts were Altean. Like they didn’t even know. But when Allura and Coran find out, they are just so excited. But they also make sure to keep an eye close on them. Where ever Pidge goes, she sees Allura or Coran there. Matt gets spammed with messages of concern from them.

Plot twist

The Holts were of nobility. Matt and Allura were promised to one another and Pidge was her playmate. The Holts had to leave because something was threatening to take Matt and Katie away and they believed it would threaten Allura as well. Sam and Colleen say their good byes to the king and his wife with promises to see each other soon and that the engagement will still be upheld. The only reason why they don’t recognize it is because Mama and papa Holt suppressed their children’s memories and changed their appearances. And Allura only sees them but as a memory, because they left so early in their childhood. Coran would have to connect the dots but can’t.

New petition to have all the delinquents + Luna and Emori live at ALIE’s mansion.

I mean, raven would be in the lab, Luna at the beach, Murphy and Emori would be dancing and cooking in the kitchen, Bell and Clarke could chill by the pool with Clarke drawing the landscape, Jasper could play with those toy cars from last episode, Octavia could hunt things in the forest, and Monty could look for herbs and make moonshine like first season. OH and Miller and Bryan could raise their chickens oh my god

Summary:

Keith gets adopted by the Galra empire rebellion, basically.

Keith has barely three years of life on his cells, has barely grown up to his Father’s knees and into his Mother’s laugh when he’s thrown into the first sense of flying, of fleeing, of his Father solemnly reading through the coordinates Keith doesn’t understand, that Keith thinks are just a pretty game of lights, lights that remind him of his Mom’s knife.

He’s holding it, holding onto it, tries to find the connection between the numbers and the faintest of glows, illuminating the insides of his fingers, misses how his Dad flinches when he asks: “When will Mom catch up to us?” already sleepy, already curling up beneath the safety straps of his seat.

Gently, his Father’s jacket is tucked around him and the scent is the lullaby that sings him into dazed, motionless dreams, the remnants of home, the flickers of the unknown.

(He sleeps through the harsh descent, the crib of his Father’s arms, the hushed ambush, the quietest of heists.)

He sleeps through it all.

Parents will cause such ridiculous amount of humiliation and abuse to their very young children, it’s like they really expect us to just, lose all the memories of it, or otherwise, they expect us to never actually grow up, or they’re planning to kill us off before we ever get the chance to turn against them, it’s such an idiotic plan! You don’t hurt another person because they could hurt you back, and children are harmless and can’t even stand up to you, save carry out any revenge, but we will grow up one day! Our memories will get back! We will KNOW what they DID! If abusive parents aren’t fucking terrified of their grown up children who they abused, they have it all majorly fucking wrong, and I think this is the reason why they fight thru their teeth to keep grown up children infantalized, coerced to still think and act like children, try to push them into suicide, and they don’t allow independent thought and insist on controlling the person no matter what the age beCAUSE IF WE SLIP OUT FROM THEIR CONTROL THEY’RE FUCKING FINISHED, THEY’RE DEAD MEAT, THEY ABUSED US UP TO THIS POINT AND NOW THEY’RE GOING TO PAY FOR IT. THEY BETTER FUCKING BE SCARED. THERE IS NO STOPPING OF RAGE GENERATED WITHIN A PERSON WHEN THEY REALIZE THEY’VE BEEN BRUTALLY TORTURED ALL THEIR LIFE BY THE PEOPLE WHO THEY GAVE ALL THEIR LOVE TO.

Despite the fact that it’s pretty goddamn crazy that there’s a talking bear in a duffle coat, most people react to Paddington not with amazement, but with prejudice. Like the cab driver who charges extra for bears.

Even Paddington’s adoptive family try have him fit their mold rather than learn about his culture. Instead of taking a few minutes to learn his Peruvian name, they literally give him the first “English one” they see: the name of the goddamn train station they’re all standing in.

It’s pretty clear that Paddington’s story is meant to represent the immigrant experience in England – but it’s likely an even more specific commentary than one might realize. The location of Paddington Station was one of the means by which a large influx of West Indian immigrants entered Britain in the 50s. The racial tension bubbled up into the brutal Notting Hill race riot in 1958 (not to be confused with the Notting Hill riots from 1999, when people demanded Hugh Grant’s head). Incidentally, 1958 is the same year the first Paddington book was published.

The recent movie adaptation didn’t ignore this context, incorporating calypso music in the soundtrack as a reference to the Notting Hill immigrant culture. Even Paddington’s distinctive suitcase and “Please Look After this Bear” tag aren’t totally apolitical – they were inspired by the author’s memories of children being evacuated during WWII, standing in a train station with “a label round their neck with their name and address on and a little case or package containing all their treasured possessions.” So, yep, Paddington is a refugee.
