How Altean Shape-shifting might come to play next season....

Anyone else feel a bit weird about Atlean shape-shifting so far? I mean, it’s really cool and I love the concept that Alteans used it to help with exploration and diplomatic missions. And of course, it was also awesome to see Allura rocking the Galra look.

But what bothers me is that we’ve only seen it come into play just once in the entire two seasons we’ve had of Voltron so far. It was cool when it happened, But even though it was made out to be a big reveal and an ability that would come in useful for future missions….we haven’t really seen any more of it. Not even a tiny mention throughout all of season two. 

So why bring it up this cool ability in the first place when it wasn’t going to be used anytime soon?

However, I think the odds are good that we’ll be seeing a lot more of it come into play for season 3.

But not by Allura.

But this beautiful piece of trash here….

Yes. Prince Lotor.

Since it seems Season 3 will bring in a lot of nitpicks from the original series, it’s completely probable that Prince Lotor will not be full Galra but be a half-breed- Part Galra and part Altea from his mother’s side. So that means it’s completely possible Lotor could have Altean shape-shifting abilities.

Which means the paladins are completely fucked.

I get the feeling that Prince Lotor is going to be more hands-on with dealing with Voltron and its paladins. He’s not going to send some lackey to take them down- he’s going to do it himself and completely mess with their minds while doing it.

I can imagine the first time they experience Prince Lotor’s shape-shifting abilities. Imagine, they’re on a Galra ship, thinking that Shiro might be held prisoner on it. Keith is alone and going through the cells. Then suddenly, he hears a familiar voice. He turns and behold, there is Shiro, unharmed and smiling at Keith. An emotional Keith instantly runs to embrace his closest friend, the brother he never had. Shiro wraps his arms around Keith…..

….And then starts to strangle him, laughing maniacally in a voice that is not his own. Slowing, he shifts back into Prince Lotor.

Of course, the other paladins would come and save Keith. But even now that they know about Prince Lotor’s ability, they have always be on their toes, just in case he tried to impersonate one of the paladins while one of their teammates is alone. Imagine the paranoia and distrust that might surface, especially whenever a mission calls for the team separating.

But yeah, basically I just want Prince Lotor to be like Envy from Fullmetal Alchemist. 

PUT THAT SHAPE-SHIFTING ABILITY TO USE!!!!

Word Count: 1254

A/N: This first chapter is kinda boring to be honest but I swear it starts getting much better in the next chapter this is kinda just like the introduction with necessary information to push the story forward just stick with me okay 


“Louise, Dan, you’ll be upstairs decorating the locker.” Dan nodded, ecstatic about the birthday surprise for Janice. He found it so cute that Phil was organizing the whole thing for his girlfriend. “And I’ll be downstairs in the band room with Janice, distracting her.” Dan watched as Phil jotted down the entire plan in his notebook.

“But I always go to the band room with Janice in the morning as soon as we get off the bus. Won’t she be suspicious if I leave her?” Louise questioned.

“Just say you need to use the bathroom. She’ll be fine, I’ll be with her.” Louise nodded, satisfied with Phil’s response. Dan didn’t blame her for questioning, though. Everything had to be perfect for Janice’s 13th birthday.

“So…” Dan could sense the devious tone in Louise’s voice when she spoke to Phil. “Are you going to kiss her?”

Phil went red. “I don’t know… I want to, but I also don’t, you know? I don’t know if we’re ready.”

Dan decided to butt in before this went too far. “It’s your choice, Phil. Do what you think is right.”

“I do have this ring to give her, though. I don’t have it now, but I’ll bring it for her birthday tomorrow. If I’m going to do it, that would be the time.” Phil slammed his notebook shut as Janice walked up to the lunch table with her tray.

“Hey, guys!”

“Oh, hey, Janice.” She sat down beside Phil, digging into her lunch.

“Funny story,” Janice said. “This morning, on the bus, a little kid blew a snot rocket all over Jared.” The entire group burst out laughing. Jared was the most annoying kid in the 7th grade, and it was always hilarious when he finally met his downfall.

“Little kids…” Dan sighed. His school system kinda was a piece of shit. The county was so small that they didn’t have a middle school; only an elementary school and a high school. The next year they would finally escape. But until then, they were stuck with kindergarteners and their snot rockets.

“Are you excited for your birthday tomorrow, Janice?” Louise asked, trying to make conversation.

“I guess so. It’s just… Growing up is so weird.”

“True that,” Phil chimed in.

“But I am excited for the party you’re all invited to Saturday. Except you, Phil.”

“What? Why?” Phil retorted, offended.

“My parents won’t let me have boys over.”

“What about Dan?”

“Well, he’s gay.”

The group laughed. “She’s not wrong,” Dan responded. It was common knowledge that he was incredibly gay. It was quite obvious. He’d been hanging out with girls and swooning over boys since the second grade. Although he couldn’t quite remember what, or who, for that matter, made him realize he was gay.

“How rude!” Phil said, jokingly angry about not being invited to Janice’s party.

“Hey.” Dan grinned. “Sometimes it pays to be fabulous.”


“You didn’t kiss her?” Louise said as the three walked down the hallway at the end of Janice’s birthday.

“It just didn’t seem like the right time.” Phil shrugged.

“Lay off him!” said Dan. “It’ll happen eventually. Besides, we’ve got more important things to worry about. In case you’ve forgotten, tomorrow is the band concert!”

“True that.” If there was one phrase that described Dan’s entire group of friends, it would be ‘band nerds’. Dan, Phil, and Janice all played percussion, and Louise played flute. With their spring concert the next day, they could only hope they were ready. And if they weren’t, they’d have a whole day at the high school the next day to prepare. Bless the all day band day.

“Did I hear band concert?” Janice came up from behind the three, squeezing in between Dan and Phil as they walked. “Oh yeah, that reminds me. I won’t be there for the all day band day. I have to get my spacer put in. I’ll be there around lunch though.”

“You’ll be fine,” Phil said. “Before lunch is just sectionals anyway. “Dan and I can survive alone through that bullshit.”

“Yeah. We’ll see you after lunch!”

“Okay, cool. See you guys tomorrow!” The four diverged to their buses and Dan took his usual seat in the back after wading through a sea of snotty, tiny children. Only one more month, he reminded himself. Only one more month.


It wasn’t until they arrived at the high school and set up their sectionals that Dan realized how little time he’d spent with Phil one on one. Phil had just joined their friend group when he started dating Janice a few weeks ago, and since then the entire group was together. But since Janice wasn’t there for sectionals and Dan didn’t know anyone else there, he ended up spending the morning with Phil.

Dan rolled his eyes as the percussion instructor told them to play on the backs of chairs. “Oh great. More trash.” Phil chuckled.

They were told to play straight eighth notes, but instead Dan played one of the rhythms from one of the songs they would be playing in the concert. Phil took notice and began playing a rhythm of his own. The two rocked out in the far corner as the instructor corrected the sixth graders. Laughing, they stopped as they were cut off by the conductor. Phil was actually pretty cool, Dan realized. For a straight guy, he was really accepting and nice, and Dan appreciated it. Finishing up their exercise, they broke for lunch.

“Where’s Janice? She said she’d be back for lunch and lunch is almost over.” Twenty minutes later, Dan and Phil were both starting to become concerned.

“There she is!” Dan said, pointing down to the gym floor as he took a bite of his sandwich. They were eating antisocially at the top of the bleachers.

“Hey, guys!” Janice climbed the bleachers and sat down with her lunch. “How’s it going?”

“Good,” Phil replied. “Sectionals were boring. The actual runthroughs start this afternoon. Can’t wait for the concert, man!”

“Me neither,” Dan said. “Only a few more hours…”


“Where’s Phil?” Dan asked Louise. “I hear he’s wearing a purple bow tie.”

“Oh my gosh, I need to see this. Let’s find him and touch the bow tie. It has to be done.”

“Agreed.”

“Dan, check the bathroom.” Dan went into the boys’ bathroom and made his way through all the boys changing into their concert clothes. Finally, he found Phil combing his hair.

“Oh my gosh, the bow tie!” Dan poked it before bringing Phil out to Louise and letting her do the same.

“Yeah, yeah. The bow tie is great, I know. Let’s just get out of this madhouse and get some fresh air.” Agreeing with Phil, they all walked outside to find Janice and a few of their other friends chatting. Dan pulled out his phone, pulling up the camera.

“Hey guys! Smile!” Dan took a selfie of them all before Phil stole the phone out of his hand. “Hey!”

He held the phone up, taking a picture of him and Janice. She took it and took a few of herself before taking a picture of the whole group. “Hey, Kaden! Take a picture of us all!” The group lined up and pointed cheesily at the camera as Kaden, an outsider who Janice knew, took the pictures.

Taking his phone back, Dan smiled as he looked through the pictures. The one of Janice and Phil was especially cute. The filter they had put on it looked great, and the two looked wonderful in their concert clothes. Dan was happy his friend had finally found such a great guy. The future looked bright for them all. After all, they only had one month left before the summer before high school. What could possibly go wrong?

Avevo immaginato tutto, con troppa chiarezza. Avevo immaginato te e me, qui, in questa stanza, in questa casa. Avevo immaginato tutto, con una tal precisione, fino ai minimi particolari. E quando si vedono le cose future con tanta chiarezza, come se già stessero succedendo, allora è segno che non devono succedere mai. Perchè sono già successe, in un certo senso, nella nostra testa e non è più consentito provarle davvero.
Dissi: è come in certi giorni che l'aria è troppo chiara, troppo limpida, si vedono i contorni spiccati, netti, precisi, e vuol dire che vien la pioggia.
—  Natalia Ginzburg, Le voci della sera

These two boys thought they might try drowning this evening. We took them to Buffalo Creek for a walk and they thought falling into a deep section of it was a good idea, right by an escarpment too steep for them to get themselves out.

So I had to slide down and avoid falling in myself, scraping myself up on the way down, then yank them out one at a time by the scruff, trying not to think about crocodiles. Then when they clambered up the bank I had to pull myself up with reeds. At least my phone didn’t fall out of my pocket into the creek and nobody drowned or got eaten by a crocodile. Thanks boys, we won’t be coming back to this spot in future.

this means I can write quality angst about the team slowly accepting that Barry’s not coming back (and then he does), and then about a future where Barry comes back from his four-month stay in the Speed Force, only to vanish into it again years later Crisis On Infinite Earths-style, where the whole “hey he came back last time” attitude becomes much harder to keep up once five, ten, twenty years pass by.

(Iris never stops believing, and one day a sixty-something year old Iris West comes home to be greeted by a Barry Allen who doesn’t even look thirty. He never leaves again.)

These bois really really really light up my mood. Just watching their videos and all already makes my day. I love you, okay? Thank you for lifting my spirit whenever I’m down. Thank you for shining and glowing. Let’s continue smiling.

Shine, shine, glow brighter and cast more magic
Happy smiles will bloom, and the future will come

Manchester attack

My heart goes out to all of those who are involved in the Manchester incident I’m so sorry 2017 had to be this way this is terrible to think this year was going to be a good one but things took a turn for the worst I hope all is good to come and hopefully this year will be better in the future I’m heartbroken to think and see that they were having the best day of there life meeting there idol and then they were injured or killed…or lost a loved one this is a heartbreaking and shameful act of cowards this is truly devastating….💔

new genre concept: soft apocalypse

the world as we know it has ended and mother nature starts taking back what’s hers. there are no zombies or cannibals or murderous bandits. the most valued members of the community are those who know how to garden and farm, sew and weave, treat wounds, work wood or build with bricks, cook from scratch. 

people bond together to begin rebuilding instead of killing each other. everyone teaches each other whatever they do know and works together to figure out the stuff none of them know. books become incredibly valued resources because they’re often the only way to learn critical information. if someone is elderly, disabled, or otherwise unable to work at the same level as most of the community, they’re taken care of by the others, not told any sort of “survival of the fittest” bs.

as the generations ware on, communities begin expanding into small cities. some of the settlements even find ways to repurpose solar or wind power on a small scale and have electricity in some of their buildings. storytellers wander the countryside telling tales of the old world in return for some hot stew or a place to rest for the night, and the mythos of the new world start to incorporate elements of the past. the only thing that remains constant is that humans survive, and they do it by working together.

It’s only been a little over a year, and we’ve gone from this 

to this

and I couldn’t be more proud of our boys. We’ve gone through so much, and I really hope we can continue to grow as a fandom to love and support our boys who deserve the world. <3333

Everyone going on about how Trump has had his “Watergate moment” forgets that Watergate wasn’t a moment. The criminal activity began in early 1972. Nixon resigned on August 8, 1974. In between was a daily grind of reporting and protests and people going on with their lives – none of which benefited from panicky overreactions about how the nation was doomed. So buckle in for the long haul. Whatever comes from recent exhausting events, and all the exhausting events of the future, it’s unlikely to happen overnight.

But social media doesn’t thrive on people quietly grinding through their days. It thrives on alarmism, on making every day sound like the most elaborate and shocking episode yet in the soap opera that is reality. And that depresses people because if you gaze too long into the abyss, the abyss asks Mike Huckabee to tell you a shitty “joke.”

Constant outrage and fear are not healthy. It makes people stressed, tired, and sad. And it makes people wonder when something will be done. Well, things have been done. But you aren’t being given a chance to savor them because other people are constantly yelling at you about how today’s new development is definitely the one that changes history forever and anyone who believes otherwise is a traitor. So let’s pause for a moment and take stock.

Your Anti-Trump Efforts Are Working
