This is just something I’ve noticed

The lighter your complexion is, the more contrast you’ll have between two natural hues; your skin, and color of your hair, but more so, if the hair is darker than the skin. When given a certain amount of lighting, it will outline the shape of their features giving off depth. That’s why when they contour their face with makeup, especially with darker colors, it makes their features pop out even more than it had originally.

The darker your skin is, the less contrast between the two hues you will have, because they almost blend together. When you combine, brighter backgrounds with darker lighting, and then add a hint of light coming from either above, or from one side of them, it creates more depth over their features. Too much lightning, or too much of a shadow will wash it out. Certain bright, and earth tone colors will bring out that depth even more, which as a result outlines the shape of their features. That’s why charcoal black, gold, silver, and white typically pop even greater on those with darker skin tones, because it’s a balance between light and dark. Deeper reds, and purples also look great on them as well.

How people perceive your features is totally based off shapes and sizes, and which one they appeal to.

So, I don’t believe that one is truly more beautiful than the other at the end of the day. It’s really about how our perception has been created. The fact that we have a system set in place to honor one spectrum of beauty over the other, creating a negative outlook around one, while limiting that beauty from being shown just as dominantly as other, is the primary reason why some of us have this idea that we’re not equal enough in admiration. It’s created a one sided perception of beauty in our minds, which also has created division, covetousness and competition between the two shades.

I really love the idea of Altean!Lance especially when paired with BoM-suit-Galra!Keith yes hello sign me the fuck up but I think I prefer him with his normal hair colour rather than white.

Anti & Dark

Anti– animal, born and bred to be evil, natural hunter, hides away in shadows, moves quickly and abrupt, hardly seen but heard, filled with unstoppable adrenaline from his ‘chase’ causing uncontainable pleasure=laughing and giggling when making tricks and japes, ‘kill or be killed’, goes for the kill, no suffering for his prey= ‘gets the job done’, puerile= no logic or reason to his tactics and likely to blame others for his actions (e.g. “It’s all your fault!”)  

Dark– human, twisted into evil by past experiences, stalks his prey, illusions and manipulation, luring victims into a trap, takes his time (e.g. “I’ve been waiting patiently.”), slow and careful movements, stable mined= able to contain excitement, two-faced, callous and sadistic, likes to watch his prey struggle, logical= sees himself as the alpha and a genius, likes to give options to trick and tease his victims (e.g. “I’ll give you a choice.”) just extending their suffering.
