the 7 deadly sins

context: the players are trapped in a room and the only way to get out is to perform the 7 deadly sins. previously, the players kidnapped a bandit who attacked them and are now carrying him around in handcuffs.

cleric: okay, so there’s lust, right? *cleric passionately kisses the bandit*
omnipotent voice: LUST
alchemist: I had a crush on the cleric, so now I’m jealous
omnipotent voice: ENVY
cleric: I cannot just have one love, I hunger for more *kisses the alchemist*
omnipotent voice: GREED
cleric: I am proud of my romantic endeavours
omnipotent voice: PRIDE
cleric: I punch the bandit in the dick
fighter: maybe he liked that
cleric: what the fuck
omnipotent voice: WRATH
fighter: well, there’s still gluttony. I guess I have no choice *eats the bandit’s arm*
cleric *WAIT NO-*
omnipotent voice: GLUTTONY
omnipotent voice: SLOTH
fighter: wait who was sloth
*rogue is still lying down in the corner and hasn’t helped since we entered the room*
fighter: oh

No one can convince me that there isn’t a tracking device integrated into Shiro’s mechanical arm. There’s just way too much evidence.

  • Maybe you could explain away the Galra ship following him to Earth. Half the empire is probably out searching for the Champion who was going to be Zarkon’s greatest weapon.
  • But then they instantly track the team to Arus, and no one knows how.
  • And then the Robeast literally homes in on Shiro and Pidge as they examine the crashed Galra ship.
  • And the Galra knew Team Voltron was headed back to the Balmera and prepared for their arrival. (Lance blames it on Rolo, but (a) no one ever mentions the Balmera to Rolo (that we see), just that they need to help “a hero named Shay” and “her people,” and (b) we never see Rolo and Nyma get picked up by the Galra so that they could have passed on the information they might not even have.)
  • Once again, the second Robeast zeroes in on Team Voltron, magically. (Allura even comments on it this time. “How do they keep finding us?”)
  • Oh, and then there’s the finale, where Zarkon has a fleet waiting in ambush for the “surprise” rescue mission. The team jump into the center of a gas giant to avoid detection, but Zarkon is ready. Cue Keith: “Why do I get the feeling these guys knew we were coming?”

Individually, you could explain each of these away, but taken together it’s got to be more than just coincidence. After all, Haggar had big plans for Shiro. Do you really think she would take the risk of her precious weapon getting away from her?

Oh, and don’t forget the team’s all separated now, which means Shiro likely won’t have any backup when Zarkon comes chasing after him. :)

So, uh, who else is looking forward to Shiro getting recaptured in season 2?

You don’t get what all this is about
You’re too wrapped up in your self doubt
You’ve got that young blood, set it free

You’ve got it all
You lost your mind in the sound
There’s so much more
You can reclaim your crown
You’re in control
Rid of the monsters inside your head
Put all your faults to bed
You can be king again

non-european history of art lecturer grantaire letting his class know he’ll have a supplementary talk on european masters if anyone’s interested 

and he’s pretty funny and interesting so plenty of students turn up to an hour of him clicking through renowned pieces of art and saying a few words on each like

‘that arm was not a design choice. that’s a shitty arm’ … 'nipple sprinklers were apparently in at the time’ …. 'that’s either the baby jesus or the michelin man i don’t even know’ …. 'for the first time in my life i’m sick of seeing tits…. is that a tit? it might be an orange'
