So I was thinking about how Lance would react with the whole Lion musical chair switch thing…and then I thought about how the Black Lion would view Lances reaction.
And. You know. Black Paladin Lance endgame.
Black, as the new Paladins called her, saw Blue’s cub often, even before her own kitten had disappeared. Blue’s baby was so sweet always visiting his Lion.
Shiro never visited her.
So, of course, Black paid attention to the new visitor in the Lions Den.
The Paladin would sit criss cross apple sauce, as he called it, in front of Blacks sister as he’d regale Blue with his day. There were clear dramatic embellishments but Black found the little cub endearing, with how he flailed his tiny limbs and painted Blues claws. He seemed to have some self confidence issues as well, and the Red kit seemed to get angry at him whenever he saw hik in the Den.
The cub didn’t stop dropping by after the Paladins and their Princess decided to shuffle things around either, the kitten would visit with Red, doing his best to bond with the temperamental lion, but he never forgot Blue.
He also never yelled at Red.
Black wasn’t very fond of Red’s Paladin. Red was bitter because her kit no longer spent time with her, but she seemed to be growing attached to Blue’s kitten.
Black was envious of Red and Blue both, Yellow and Green were content as neither had to play musical paladins.
It was silly that the five humans and two Alteans thought they had any choice in the matter of who piloted them. Blue especially had taken her time selecting her Paladin, a whole 10, 000 years.
Black just wished the Red kit and the Princess would stop prancing around as if she would actually let the kit pilot her.
She’d much prefer Blue’s cub. This caused some strife between her and her sisters, Red wishing to make her lot jealous, Blue just wanting her cub back for herself.
In all honesty Black just didn’t want the Red Paladin to pilot her because Shiro thought he was the one to pick his replacement. Black would have to go through a few more training techniques before she wold be satisfied when the humans and Aliens found Shiro.
But it would take them far to much time to find Shiro if they kept trying to get Reds Paladin pilot her. If they wanted Shiro they should give her Lance. She wanted to get her claws done like Red and Blue!
Black was completley allowed to be kitish every once in a millenia.
Black growled as the Red kit banged his fists against he barrier, what did he hop to get from this? Black walled over to where Blue and Red were sitting she was done with the Red cub.
The Red Paladin followed after her, clearly indignant. Black ignored him and Greens giggles. Blue nuzzled her gently, trying to provide some comfort. Red merely Mooney after her Paladin.
The red cub yelled a little longer before stalking off, almost crashing into the sweet Blue kitten. Black, Blue and Red sat up a little straighter, purring excitedly as the kit made his way to them. Green and Yellow wandered over curiously.
Black turned to Blue, doing her best to plead with her eyes. Yellow nudged the cub with her muzzle, poKing him with her claws.
The Blue kit looked at the Lions in awe. Black smiled appreciatively with the rest of her pride. Yes, this was a good cub. Nice amount of fear and adoration.
Blue sighed dramatically and plucked up her cub in her mouth, placing the terrified and flailing kitten onto Black’s nose. Black beamed.

"i’m sorry, i misheard, i think you meant i look fucking great”
her guilty pleasure is 90′s boy bands she loves *nsync and backstreet boys and totally knows all the bad dance moves from the music videos
she’s tone deaf though can’t carry a tune to save her life but sings loud and proud anyway

“please sit outside for the remainder of class”
*cue deep dramatic sigh from blue*
the teacher called maura, who laughed her ass off and hung up the phone
she was riding her bike home one day and was late because she got distracted talking to a homeless guy while waiting at an intersection and she bought him some mcdonalds and played cards with him
LOVES stargazing so much, persephone taught her the constellations when she was little
when she misses her she goes and sits under the stars with smelly tea, wearing a pair of persephone’s socks. she feels closer to her that way and it hurts a little less.
the gray man didn’t teach her how to fight, calla did.
by the time calla is done with her blue can flip ronan on his back
speaking of ronan him and blue are best friends i don’t make the rules these are just facts
she has dream hair clips that change color
she sewed pockets into all his jackets for chainsaw
theyre combat boot buddies

she has literally taken a running leap and jumped on his back while he was in the middle of a conversation and he didn’t falter in the slightest
he rips up clothes for her so she can get that Punk Aesthetic

“blue why are you laying on the ground”
“im doing yoga. its called corpse pose. leave me alone youre fucking up my zen.”
corpse pose is a lie it’s literally laying on the ground
so lately, i’ve been thinking about gems that can be multiple colors and their differences in attire + personality based on which diamond they serve, so i made this chart w the examples we know of!! padparadscha being a pink diamond gem is speculative tho ofc
basically, what i gather from this is that yellow diamond gems are supposed to look sharp, angular, and v clean, and in general they act very smug and no-nonsense. blue diamond gems generally have softer, curved designs, and are generally relaxed and calm. and pink diamond gems are supposed to look messy and extra af, and be really jolly and friendly. now if only we could see some white diamond gems…
the design philosophy behind each diamond’s followers makes me excited to see other variants tbh. like, i wanna see a yellow sapphire who’s v stuck up and dramatic, or a blue topaz, just to see how they would alter her design to be more regal. maybe a yellow agate is more drill sergeant-esque while a pink agate is more like a feel good personal trainer. idk it’s just rlly exciting!!!
@marathecactupus I love your metas surrounding the Red vs Bluethemes of series 4. I haven’t been thinking about this for a long time, but I have been trying to figure out why ASIP is so goshdarn purple. Every street backlit with purple. Trees, purple. Sherlock and John together, purple. Running through London, purple.
Even the outfits of the characters (Sherlock, Blonde woman in ASIP, Connie Prince’s brother in TGG, Mrs Hudson) are purple.
Do you have any thoughts as to the coordination of these three colors?
At first thought I would say “purple” represents a harmonious time between Sherlock’s heart and brain. The minute Moriarty showed up and threatened to burn the heart out of him, then things started to separate. Even that pool scene is dramatically blue and red. Irene’s two makeup choices are blue and red. Sherlock and John wear blue and red.
I could be wrong, but doesn’t it take until TAB for lots of purple to reappear? The robes of the women, Sherlock’s dressing gown, Mrs Hudson’s outfit. And since TAB is a blatant mirror to series 4, it would make sense for TAB to be the “Sherlock’s heart and head work together and he lives happily ever after with John” while series 4 is “In real life the game is never over, one must separate the heart and the brain, romantic entanglement won’t complete you as a human being”, keeping the themes red and blue.
Terribly sorry if you’ve already said this somewhere and I’m here thinking I’ve come up with something new – if this discussion is elsewhere please point me to it!
This is to fill a prompt from @tibean2992. I have one more prompt I’m working on, but if anyone has any other zimbits prompts, please send them along!
Also, it got pretty long, so most of it is under a cut.
It hit Bitty’s nose first.
He unlocked the door to the condo, picked up the reusable grocery bags from his feet and shouldered the door open and was assaulted by the smell.
He groaned and put the bags in the kitchen, barely pausing to note the empty dog crate that stood there, and followed the odor to the guest bedroom. Whose rug was now decorated with a literal steaming pile of crap.
“Belinda!” he called.
He went looking and found the dog sitting in the master bedroom, facing the door, just waiting for him. Her brown eyes were warm and her forehead was furrowed slightly, as though she was worried or confused.
Bitty forced himself to take a deep breath. Through his mouth.
holy shit please imagine the concept of a colorbonding soulmate au of pricefield….
the first color max sees is blue, and it comes in waves that arent quite always there. she notices it only sometimes, in chloe’s eyes and the heated water that chloe flings at her while laughing. she doesn’t see blue fully until the tight hug she presses chloe into the second time they are in front of the party. it’s then that she notices the vibrant blue of chloe’s hair and of the moonlight against her shoulders.
it isn’t until later, when the rain is pattering on the windows of chloe’s truck and they are about to brave the storm, that max sees everything. chloe grabs her hand and looks her in the eyes, preparing to step out of safety and into the storm. the second their hands make contact max jerks back, because suddenly life is in color. it’s nothing like she ever expected, and it’s bittersweet because they might just have only a few hours left together. but she can’t help but be elated.
chloe sees in muted reds and browns, and it’s always been like that for her, at least ever since she was a kid. once upon a time she could see rachel’s caramel hair and parts of those hazel eyes, and now she can see max’s freckles and her pink doe shirt. when max kisses her the morning after breaking into blackwell, the world springs to life around her.
suddenly everything is in color, bright and saturated and undeniably beautiful. she pulls away as quickly as she leaned in, and everything feels dramatically different. max, blue eyes shining with mirth, just teases her and heads downstairs, unaware that chloe’s life just changed.
