“You can’t just ride a bear,” she said. “It’s not built for transportation.”
I looked at her cowardly face. “That’s loser talk,” I said.
She was a bit offended but I didn’t care. I was going to ride that grizzly bear and I was going to do it today.
“Give me the lasso out of the bag,” I ordered.
“No… please, don’t do this.”
“That’s loser talk,” I said as I ripped the backpack out of her hands.
The rope was thick and the lasso was heavy, but I had spent every waking hour of my life preparing for this day. A heavy rope wasn’t going to stop me.
“What if it bites you?” she protested.
But I wouldn’t listen. This was my destiny; this was my fate. I slowly approached the grizzly, rope in hand, my fingers ready to strike.
I knew it could sense I was coming. It turned, sniffed the air, and rose up on its hind legs. He was towering, about a foot taller than me, and had thick brown fur shielding him from the cold. I only had my $240 North Face jacket.
“Let’s go. You and me. It’s game time, you dumb bear,” I taunted.
He slowly turned to face me. Our eyes met, and he had a twinkle in his eye that looked like a diamond. It was kind of cute for a bear.
I readied my lasso. The time was right. The wind was settled and the air was clear. It was now or never.
But I couldn’t do it. It was something about the way he tilted his head and stared at me—a sort of innocence and fragility that I had scarcely seen before. I just couldn’t bring myself to tame such a wild beast.
“I can’t do it…. I can’t fight you, bear,” I shouted in tears.
( cheap proof of life drawing. Im still here and around guys, spent some time today doing nothing but drawing his holiness. I don’t like how I draw him and seriously need to get better at his dumb face and stupid ‘bear trap mouth’. be please be patient with me in the mean time. ^.^ )
Okay, so here’s a recollection of the best day of my fandom life? #ECCC
I’m usually just here to make short, dumb, spazzy comments,
so bear with me, because this will probably be long. However, I’ll try not to
be too repetitive and remember the interesting parts. ;) Apologies if the pics are effing huge. I don’t do this posting thing - ever. hahah
i’m gonna be emotional about something dumb so just bear with me or actually ignore me please the first time i’ve seen IT was more than ten years ago, i was very young, and i loved it. i loved the characters, i loved their friendship, but most of all, i loved Richie and Eddie. they were probably the first two men i’ve ever shipped together, and that led me to a very complicated journey through sexuality, the way it works, my own sexuality, the meaning of my fantasies about the two of them. i even wrote my first fanfiction back then, and it was about the two of them. i was so freaked out and excited about this discovery, about this whole new world, i guess? and now the new movie is out and people are shipping them. there’s even fanart about them, while before this movie came out there was almost nothing… and i’m so fucking happy about it because it took a while for their relationship to be noticed for how special and amazing it is, but it finally happened and i’m just sort of proud of them, which is ridiculous because they’re just characters of a book and two movies but they meant so much to me when i was younger ?????? i’m gonna shut up now b y e
Alright, I’ll rant to you about endgame
Shance, but before I continue I want to make this perfectly clear:
This is not
proof. These are merely references from the show that I believe
could support my theory for endgame Shance.
PART ONE (I had to break this up because tumblr is dumb, bear with me.)
Okay SO. As I’ve already said in this
post, Shiro starts out at the mentor figure and Lance has a huge hero
crush on him. This is not headcanon, this is not fanon, this is
canon. (In this particular instance, hero crush is to mean great
admiration for an individual you look up to.) “That’s Shiro! The
pilot of the Kerberos Mission! That guy’s my hero!” - Lance,
Season 1, Episode 1.
“Okay, so what?” you ask. Well…
“I should thank you all for getting
me out. Lance, right?” - Shiro, Season 1, Episode 1. Immediately,
Shiro zeroes in on Lance. Pidge and Hunk have to be introduced.
That alone implies that, going forward, there’s going to be a bond
between Shiro and Lance of some sort. Just look at every movie, tv
show, book, ect ever. Characters meant to have a bond of any sort
have a specific moment in which they are introduced to each other and
make eye contact, and always with the implications that this
meeting, between these two people, is important. Examples being:
Harry and Draco from the Harry Potter series; Spock and Kirk from
Star Trek; Percy and Anabeth from Percy Jackson and the Olympians…
I could go on.
And look at this face.
Look at it! Lance has to take a moment
to mentally process that he’s meeting his hero. The creators of VLD
could have made him simply fangirl over Shiro,
could have made him make a complete fool of himself, could have had
him be a complete dork and spit out a joke, could have made him brag
about saving Shiro’s life – all of that would have been in
character for Lance. But they didn’t. Instead, Lance had a
vulnerable moment where he had to stop, take a breath, and pull
himself back together so that he could shake someone’s
hand. He doesn’t do this with the Queen of the Merpeople,
he doesn’t do this with Allura, he doesn’t do this with anyone else.
Why? Hmm, maybe – and I’m just speculating here – maybe it’s
because this moment is of significant importance to Lance and Shiro’s
relationship development later on.
Dan: Don’t ever fucking joke about bears again. Them guys barely staying alive with this global warming ice cap melting bullshit. You’re lucky I don’t slap your ass from here to the North Pole, shut your whore mouth and think before you speak, Phil
