even longer actually

…I wonder if that was actually a good decision to make there, Kuroo

First | Prev | Next

It keeps bothering me that they decided to show that galra shield in Sendak’s ship to the audience through Keith, when they could very well have used Shiro or Allura, people we know has a past with the Galra empire, or even Sendak himself.

Okay, that sounded confusing, so let me try to elaborate. English is not my first language, so it will be a bit hard.

On the first episode, after Shiro and Pidge casually ditched Keith to his own luck on finding Red, we see him running around until he find himself in a… A…

He has two paths to go and doesn’t know which one to take.

You know, this

Now, the composition on this scene is interesting. You have the galra symbol hovering above Keith, who is right in the middle. It’s almost like it is pointing at him. 

Scratch that, the whole scene seems to be pointing at Keith in this one. No matter where you look, the lines take you back to our favorite Red Paladin. 

And then, this happens.

His whole body language changes when he sees it. He straightens his back, his arm falls to his side and I do wish I had HQ screencaps of this moment, but I don’t, so bear with my rushed kisscartoon misery.

And then he actually stares at it.

He stares at it for sometime, and only stops when he hears the galra soldier coming. His whole expression is… I don’t know how to put it. fucking language barriers, dude. If I were to name it anything, it’s almost of somewhat familiarity. 

As if he’s seen it before.

And then we see his expression changes yet again as he hears the soldier approaching and remembers why he’s there.

And not once the galra symbol leaves the screen in this brief moment. It’s always there, pointing at Keith, above Keith, on Keith’s visor…

Now, after three years hearing my teachers saying over and over again that nothing in animation is there just because, that everything was throughout planned to be there and be the way it is, I can’t help but wonder what were dreamworks and studio mir’s intentions with this one.

I mean, there’s the obvious one: to show the viewers one of the shields of the Galra Empire. To know that, whenever this symbol and others similar to this appear, it means that it’s related to the Galra in one way or another.

The thing is… Why do it through Keith, out of all the characters?

They could have done it earlier with Shiro’s flashback, as he remembered that he was in that ship before, at one point of his time as a slave from the galra empire. 

They could have done it with Sendak, since, you know, it’s his fucking ship.

They could have done it even with Allura, when Sendak first contacted the castle, and she could have recognized the symbol from the time Altea was being attacked.

But they made the deliberate choice to do it through Keith’s eyes.

They sat down in a room, discussed over this scene, made the storyboard, and decided that showing a Galra symbol through Keith, going even as far as keeping the reflection on his helmet’s visor when there were very few other times they used reflection to show anything in this show.

And here’s my guess on their not-so-obvious reason on to why they made this choice:

They want us to associate the galra with Keith, even if in the back of our minds.

The last time I saw a show giving this sort of hint was in the really fucking good anime Erased. In the op, for a very brief moment, you see the reflection of the killer in the shattered glass.

It’s not a really obvious reflection, for you still have a hard time associating the face with any named characters before the great and majestically composed reveal. And it lasts not even a second, so, unless you’re an obsessed theorist who lives in a shack in the desert and went through the op frame by frame, you barely notice it.

But is enough for you to make out a black suit, and now it’s imprinted in your mind that you cannot trust the man in the black suit.

SPOILER: And, as it turned out, the only character who used a black suit in a regular basis was the killer.

And just like in Erased they wanted you to associate black suit with the antagonist through the reflection, I feel like Voltron is trying to do something similar in here with Keith.

They aren’t straight out telling us, but they aren’t exactly keeping it from us. At a first glance, it’s just another in between scene before Keith gets to his lion.

But when you put it together with all the other slightly more obvious pieces of evidence…

… I dare to say it’s a quite brilliant hint.

TL;DR: Either Keith is a galra and they want us to associate one of the galra symbols directly to him as a hint, or I’m going completely crazy here.

If you think Philip Shea wouldn’t rock the hell out of a crop top, you’re wrong.

So yeah I don’t know what I am doing, I just read this post from @thegaypumpingthroughyourveins this morning and suddenly I had written almost 900 words, I haven’t even proofread the thing and honestly it’s shit. Also it was supposed to be longer but then suddenly the magic was gone and I couldn’t write a single word, so have fun with a half-finished nothing.

honestly I’m now super glad I found about my job over the phone rather than in person because it took me like ten minutes just to stop crying

Across the Stars, Chapter 2

Prologue   Chapter 1   Chapter 2   Chapter 3   Chapter 4    Chapter 5

Chapter 6   Chapter 7

An update! Yay! I hope you all are liking it so far <3 I’m having so much fun writing it! Word of warning: There is foul language and a bit of sexual content in this chapter. But, it you’ve read ACOMAF, you can definitely handle it. Please like/reblog if you enjoyed it! It’s so encouraging to receive a response! 

 Rhys leaned his head against the back wall of the hallway, staring at the door to his own apartment through his eyelashes. He was only prolonging the inevitable, he knew. She’d been furious on the phone, and he would have stayed at the diner longer, might even have actually ordered something, if only to keep an eye on that girl, Feyre, but he hadn’t wanted her to hear Amarantha screaming at him. He hadn’t wanted to shatter the illusion she had of him.

Especially as he certainly hadn’t missed the flash of jealousy and disappointment when Amarantha’s picture appeared on his phone the first time she’d called him.

And now that bitch was in his apartment, waiting to scream at him. Probably naked so he’d have a harder time fighting back. So she’d be able to use his desire against him. Five years with her, and he knew the routine.

He ran a hand through his hair, half slumping back down the wall. He should try to change the locks again. He should try to file a restraining order against her again. Not that it had worked the other times he’d done so, but…Wasn’t it worth a shot?

Today is an important day for me, it’s January 14th, which means that it’s Dave Grohl’s birthday!! :D ♥♥♥

This guy is my hero… He has always been here when i was feeling bad, his music is like a real medicine for me, and this since 5 years, even a bit longer actually. I can’t explain what i really feel for him, he’s my fave musician and i really doubt it’s gonna change cause no other musician is Dave. He really is the perfect guy for me, and i’m so glad i know him, even if i’m not even sure i’ll be able to meet him at least once in my life ♥♥ All the bands he his/have been in are so important for me, they made me discover who and how i really am. I don’t think i’ll ever be grateful enough for all what he has done for me.

Anyway, happy birthday to this beauty who’s turning 48 today. I wish him joy and everything that comes with it :) ♥♥♥♥♥♥

Finally, I finished part 6 of my 화양연화: Young Forever series: RUN!

It took me so long to settle on an idea for this song, and even longer to actually finish it, but I’m finally done! I thought about a couple other ideas for RUN, but I decided that something related to the MV fit it best~

HYYH series: part 6/?

Longer post on this is coming, but:

Constance and d’Artagnan meeting at least five years prior to S1. Constance would be somewhere around nineteen years old, while d’Artagnan would be about fourteen.

No romance - they’d be the last people on each others’ radar, and the age-gap would seem so much bigger, and Constance would probably already be engaged to Bonacieux, but they two of them could definitely have an adventure in problem-solving, shenanigans in working-together.

The best part is imagining them meeting again, years later when d’Artagnan unexpectedly crashes (quite literally) back into Constance’s world. That moment of recognition, eventually followed by the realization the field has somewhat leveled between them.


Hey there anon! I decided to answer your ask in a post because… Eremin, Yumikuri and similarities is something I’ve always wanted to talk about but never got around doing. So yes I’m using this ask to talk about that a little more :)

I also think those pairings are “alike” although I wouldn’t call them alternate version of each other, since the characters and their interactions are very different from one pairing to the other. And YumiKuri romance level is over 9000 XD. The thing is, you could use the tag dark hair titan shifter x smaller and no-nonsense blond and it would fit both pairings. But the similarities between them go well past physical appearance or characters attributes.

 Since this is going to be a post about parallels between Eremin and Yumikuri, beware of long post with a large amount of manga panels.

While reading the manga, I’ve found a lot of parallels between both ships. Not because Eremin = YumiKuri because no, their relationships and character dynamic are different. It’s because their interactions are written in a way that you can find a lot of common elements between them, both in writing and art. There are plenty of scenes in manga where clear parallels can be drawn between both pairings. Let’s see, we have:

The titan shifters sacrificing themselves to protect their blonde friend/partner, where Eren and Ymir throw their life away (almost)to save Armin and Historia.

Eren - Armin

Ymir - Historia

Six months ago we were given 2 seconds of footage that started a fandom wide excitement for more information. Those two seconds were the footage of the forehead touching scene with Pythagoras and Icarus (We now know it was the confrontation after the betrayal was discovered). It started a ship before the series had even started and even longer before Icarus was actually introduced as a character.

For months we were desperate for this not to be just another case of queerbaiting; we’ve basically been called crazy by other writers of shows for thinking we could actually have a canon homosexual couple when we’re given two male characters who frequently have intimate moments, so naturally because of this we were extremely apprehensive but we still got so invested into this ship and you know what? WE WERE RIGHT.

Atlantis just gave a big ‘Fuck you’ to every writer who thinks it’s okay to build up a homosexual romance but not have it go anywhere just because they want to attract the liberal audience but are too scared to actually make it canon and then completely deny any knowledge of what they are clearly doing. Take note other writers because this is how you fucking do it. You build it up and then you actually give your audience what they want instead of insulting them repeatedly for seeing things that you purposefully write in.

Thank you Atlantis writers because you know how to write a canon homosexual romance and I will always be grateful for that, despite the show being cancelled way too soon.
