Leave them alone. Honestly, just… leave them alone for a while. While not always the case, these folks prefer to calm down first. Aries lunarians tend to react on impulse easily and they’re easily overwhelmed by their emotions so they need to sort that out for themselves in a way. This doesn’t mean you have to (but also might have to) physically leave them alone. Just don’t mention their troubles more than necessary; they might overreact. Let them initiate things on their own.
Just be there; be the rock they failed to be themselves this time. You don’t need to do anything spectacular, just hug them. Mentally be there for them, but physically as well. They might want to talk about it, if so just listen to them vent, but for the moment, don’t try to solve anything. The bull prefers to solve their problems themselves, even though they may appreciate a good piece of advice. Hug them. Make them feel save in your arms. Feel them. Make it obvious you care.
Gemini moons tend to shut down when they’re at a low point, but that surely doesn’t mean they should. Let them communicate their problems. Let them pour their heart out; be interested in their concerns and emotions. However, no matter what they’re saying, what they’re feeling, make sure to see them for who they are. Their emotions are quick to change, the person or situation they’re upset because isn’t what’s (the most) important. It’s them. Their current feelings. Their position. Also, make them laugh a bit. Don’t make it rude, don’t make fun of them. But try to make them crack a smile. They’ll appreciate it.
Don’t ignore what they’re going through, obviously, but don’t remind them of it even more. They’re already feeling it with every fiber of their body. Instead, gently distract them. Do things together you know they like. If they’re into baking, bake with them. If they love a particular show, watch it with them and cuddle a bit. Don’t expose them to the hectic reality of day-to-day life. Comfort them by helping them distress. Be like a mother comforting its child.
Fuel their ego. It might sound shallow, it might be, but Leos need it. Remind them of their glow, tell them why and what you love about them. Don’t just throw compliments at them in hope that they’ll feel better. Make it genuine. Listen to them, be there, and then distract them a bit, but stay close. Maybe hold their hand, or play with their hair. If you know they like it, take them to the outdoors, let them breathe some fresh air and go on a small adventure, just the two of you. Show them the love the world holds for them.
Keep them distracted. Pamper them a bit, focusing on the details of why you love them. If they can’t do things they normally can, like grocery shopping or the like, do that for them, but don’t try to solve their overall problem. Don’t tell them to “calm down” or “stop worrying so much”. They WILL worry and they WILL feel anxious, so just listen to their rants, humour them a bit, listen some more. Keep them busy. Observing Virgo will notice that you were there for them, even if you didn’t (manage to) do anything in the end.
Stay focused on them. Don’t compare your problems to theirs, they’re so often so occupied with everyone else’s problems, give them something back. Libra lunarians tend to be indecisive so lightly push them into making a choice (by themselves of course). Give them your love, let them feel it. Give them a hug. Kiss their forehead or their head. Rub their back. Hold them close, make them be able to lose themselves in your arms.
Hug them. Put your arms around them, tightly, as if you’re trying to hold them from falling apart. Let them feel whatever they’re feeling but don’t let them alone with it. Agree with them, as long as you’re not completely faking it; they’d sense it. Make sure they don’t feel judged, that you’re still thinking as highly of them as before. Please don’t let them regret finally opening up to someone. Please give yourself to them as long as they need you to be there for them.
Help them escape their bad feelings. Stand by their side. The archer doesn’t need someone to solve their problems for them, while they try to avoid them they still know how to handle them themselves in the end, and that goes for the moon in Sagittarius person as well. Distract them with what matches them. Visit a quiet café with an introvert and talk about whatever comes to mind, whatever makes them forget their low point. Go to a wild concert or the amusement park with an extrovert and let them laugh all the sorrow away. Don’t let their optimism fade away.
These guys like to not make it obvious when they’re down, they may even try to shrug it off. But if you want to comfort them, try to not push them into anything. Listen to their thoughts and nod your head, no need for big words with this sign (although some uplifting words are never a bad thing). Don’t smother them with physical affection, blankets and food, you’d suffocate them. If you view it as appropriate, try to distract them. Otherwise just let them free some of their thoughts.
Aquarius moon often wants to be alone in low moments as well and are a bit harder to comfort, but they usually already appreciate it when you believe in them. If you really want to make them feel better though, be positive.They want to talk. Aquarius loathes feeling bad. Don’t just say cliché things like ‘don’t worry, all will be well’. Make them laugh. Remind them of good times. Push them in the right direction; make them look ahead, make them not give up.
While Pisces lunarians usually differ a lot when it comes to how they want to be comforted when at a low point, they are all big on the ‘acknowledge my feelings’ one. While this is the case for pretty much everyone, moon in Pisces wants you to be present when there for them. Actually, these folks do a lot better with being able to feel that you care and are silently supporting them than seeing you doing grand things but not meaning it.
Note: Always remember to take your other placements into consideration. Nothing stands and works all on its own.
So in this post I explained why season 3 Shiro is fake because of how the Lions reject paladins. But that doesn’t explain why it still sensed and located the fake Shiro when he was floating out in space.
The Black Lion didn’t pick up on Shiro for seven whole days while he was floating out in space, until the last day. On the last day, right before fake Shiro was about to die, he started reminiscing about his team.
He started focusing on his mental and emotional connection with the team. That’s what the Black Lion picked up on. The Lions are psychic and emotional beings, they connect with their paladins through mental links. It’s the psychic connection that allows the Lions to form Voltron. Although this Shiro is fake and/or brainwashed, he believes he is real. The connection he feels to the other paladins is real, and it was so strong that the Black Lion was able to pick up on it at the last possible moment.
When this moment was over, when fake Shiro stopped reminiscing so strongly like this, the Black Lion no longer has anything to pick up on. So when fake/brainwashed Shiro tries to pilot the Black Lion, it goes back to recognizing him as fake and it rejects him.
OKAY I GOT A CRAZY THEORY THAT SOMEONE PROBABLY ALREADY CAME UP WITH BUT HERE GOES
I DON’T THINK LONG-HAIRED SHIRO IS THE REAL GOD DAMN SHIRO
LIKE OKAY THE WHOLE THING IS SHADY TO BEGIN WITH.
so i was just finishing the last episode and i randomly thought of that pic of matt and shiro that kimiko glenn (the va of Pink Galra Lady) posted on her ig story. now stay with me here.
shiro’s unnaturally long hair
so when “shiro” wakes up, we see he has long hair which wouldn’t make sense considering the timeline. we don’t know exactly how long this takes place after the last episode of season two but considering the diplomatic meeting that takes place in episode one was the first time they tried to unite after the battle, it couldn’t have been that long.i believe that they made him look ragged and beat up to make him believe he was gone for copious amounts of time. therefore further encouraging him to find his team faster.
the “second” shiro we see being tortured
unless shiro had some crazy ptsd flashback possibly triggered by being back in the hands of the galra (although entirely possible) seems a bit unlikely. i think this shiro we see being tortured is the actual shiro. i believe they may have used og shiro to make a potential weapon/infiltrator. they may have essentially hacked his being to transport all the things that make him shiro into this clone of him. even including his own will to fight against galra. i mean they gotta make him believable enough to fool the team.
operation kuron and stage three of it being underway once “shiro” escapes
i just think it’s TOO SHADY that they let him leave and then state that “stage three is underway.” they wanted him to escape. even if this is the real shiro we have no idea what they did to him. i believe they built him to have this reaction but once voltron had rescued him, they would activate whatever the fuck they did to him.
the black lion sensing his distress but shutting down on him once he got close enough
now this is the part that got me because i didn’t know how the hell the black lion could sense a fake shiro and believe it was him, but that just proves how believable this shiro can really be. don’t worry, the black lion saw right through him once he tried to pilot her. that’s why she wouldn’t budge for this shiro. not because keith has this bond with her but because no matter how accurate this shiro is, the galra can never truly recreate the bond the real shiro worked so hard to create.
and last but not least
why the fuck shiro was acting so normal after almost dying like five times
now this is what really convinced me this wasn’t the real shiro. we all saw how damaged and defeated he looked when keith was talking to him in his room. he was not ready to face the team after nearly dying literally five times. we all know shiro is the one to act like nothing is bothering him because he’s the fearless and mature leader of voltron but he was truly defeated. he was nearly caving in on himself when keith was talking to him. and for him to walk out of his room no less than what seemed like maybe 10 minutes; clean-shaven, hair all cut off, dressed in his normal attire and with a positively bright attitude after the scene beforehand? it just seemed so unbelievably impossible to me. i believe that once keith left the room, the galra somehow activated whatever they did to this shiro to create him into what we have now. i don’t know what they’re planning on using him for but i don’t trust him, and i don’t think y’all should either.
TL;DR the shiro we have now is a clone that the galra made as some secret weapon/infiltrator and i don’t trust him
I have this image of Joel Heyman, one of the most widely recognized founders of the notorious RT Crew, meeting lil Gavin Free for the first time.
Like, imagine, Gavin was over in the US for a bit, helping Gus with some hacking and following Burnie and Geoff around like a lost puppy, and Joel stumbles upon him.
Maybe Joel was away, overseas maybe, talking to some fences about the Monet paintings stashed in the warehouse (and maybe looking into a gold heist on the side) and he finally comes home, to find a kid (a literal kid, Jesus Christ Burnie) lounging around the penthouse.
Joel knows about Gavin, there’s no way he couldn’t with how often Burnie and Geoff, and even Gus, praised the “dumbass little genius,” but he had never seen his face before.
Gavin notices him, and nearly breaks his laptop in his haste to stand up. Joel stares at him for a moment before gesturing him to follow. Gavin scrambles after him.
“So…” Joel drawls as he leads the other through the maze-like halls of the penthouse. “What’s your schtick, kid.”
“Hacker,” Gavin states instantly. “Burnie brought me to—“
Joel waved that away. “Yeah, yeah, yeah, I meant what else.”
Gavin shot him a look of confusion. Joel groaned obnoxiously.
“Y’knoooow, what else did he bring you for? There’s no way he brought you here just to hack, I mean, we already have Gus, and Jason, and Burnie’s no slouch in the technical division himself. So, why’d he bring you all the way here?” Joel stops in the hallway, Gavin nearly slamming into his back. Joel turns and stares intently at the younger man. “What did he see in you?”
Gavin looks mildly affronted, and Joel wonders if he should backtrack when Gavin speaks again.
“I ran a crew, back in England. It was small, pretty damn small for all that we accomplished, but it worked. I spent most of my time hacking, or planning, but I was a frontman too.” Here, he hesitates, averting his eyes, before he looks back at Joel.
“Geoff has some plans…and he’s teaching me to be a frontman. New identity and everything.”
Joel scrutinizes him for a second before he continues walking.
“Have you thought of one yet? An identity?”
Gavin shrugs sheepishly. “All the ones I’ve come up with are rubbish. I think Geoff’s beginning to think I’m a lost cause.”
Joel hums before stopping abruptly in front of a door. He digs the key out of his pocket and unlocks it, gesturing Gavin in.
“Uh…Joel?” Gavin asks while Joel rummages through his drawers. “What exactly am I doing here?”
Joel ignores him, muttering to himself. He finally finds what he’s looking for and exclaims, slamming the drawer closed. He holds up something to Gavin’s face.
“Do you know what this is?”
“Uh yeah, gold?” Gavin reaches for it, but Joel snatches it away.
“Nope,” Joel says, popping the ‘p.’ “This, kid, is pyrite. Also known as ‘Fool’s Gold.’ To the untrained eye, it looks identical to gold, but its not. Just sulfur and iron fused together.”
“Hey!” Joel snaps, glaring. “I’m giving you a lesson here, shut the fuck up.”
Gavin puts his hands up in surrender, and Joel huffs once before continuing.
“This, this is your identity. The point of the frontman is to be the face of the crew, while also gaining information. You have to make it easy for people to trust you, while also fearing you. You pick a role and that’s the role everyone will know you as. Does that make sense?”
“You have to be like Fool’s Gold. You have to look shiny and expensive. You’re forcing people to look at the crew like a precious metal, you understand? But you have to be more than that. Fool’s Gold has edges, like a crystal, and it’s stronger than regular gold. It may not be actual gold, and you—“ he pokes Gavin in the chest “—may be playing a role, hiding behind smoke and mirrors, but you can’t ever let anyone else know that. The crew depends on no one ever finding out. That’s the point of a frontman.”
Gavin looks at him, equal parts awed and overwhelmed.
“I—“ Gavin clears his throat. “I think I understand. Thank—”
Joel waves away the appreciation, tossing the piece of pyrite to the other.
“Get outta here, I’m exhausted. Who just got off a long ass flight? This guy! All you fuckers don’t even know what it feels like to be Joel. And where’s my appreciation? ‘Oh Joel can you do this, can you do that?’ No! Everyone can just go fuck themselves!” Joel ends his tirade, smiling a little when Gavin laughs.
“Get outta here, kid.“
“See you, J-Roll.”
A few months later, Joel hears about Geoff’s crew out in Los Santos, wrecking havoc all along the shore. He hears about his second-in-command, his brawlers, his sniper, and his mercenary. But, mainly, he hears about Ramsey’s Golden Boy, and Joel can’t help but laugh.
I’d like to start by saying that I’ve seen so many complaints about this particular subject, but it looks like you don’t see them, or more likely, you choose to ignore them.
As a young member of the LGBTQ+ community (you know these people who gather every year during the same season to party on the streets and spread colourful messages everywhere, but also those who ship your best Heterosexual Characters® together), I’ve had the chance to see a few queer characters on TV during my teenage years. I remember the first time was on Buffy The Vampire Slayer when I was only 10 (reruns), and I didn’t even know that I was gay at the time. Then, when I realized my sexuality, I decided to search for shows and movies to watch. And THAT is when I also realized that there was very few LGBTQ+ content available. If you wanted to see queer folks on TV you had to dig really deep.
Lucky for me, around 2010, producers learned that putting gay people in their mainstream shows was attracting a rather important fanbase. So they gave us: Grey’s Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, Glee, Modern Family, Degrassi, Skins, etc. And we thought “YAY THAT’S MY PEOPLE” and watched these TV shows religiously, memorizing and analyzing every interaction, stare, kiss, date, hand-holding, love scene, thinking that we finally got what we wanted.
Queer characters cheat, break up for no logical reason, end up alone, disappear, or in worst case scenario, die. Because why not, right?
And if nothing happens to our loving LGBTQ+ characters, the show is just canceled, as seen with Faking It and Sense 8.
But, our community is a fucking strong one. When we fight, we put everything we have. There is so little representation of our community that when there is we give all our attention to it. That’s why you lose audience when you make a character disappear or kill it, because if you respect us, then we’ll be the greatest fanbase you’ve ever seen. We’ll spend all our money to go to conventions, buy your merch, buy your DVDs, and your actors will be loved and admired and pushed to the next level thanks to us. If you don’t respect us, then ciao adios we’re done.
So, why? Why do you keep repeating the same mistakes? Why in 2017 (almost 2018), having LGBTQ+ characters is still problematic? Why is it still impossible for a lead character to be queer in a mainstream TV show (except for OITNB, you’re doing great sweetie)? Why is it so difficult for you to consider making a non-canon queer couple canon? I mean, I’m not saying all of them, but when you have ships like Bechloe, Stilinski-Hale, Faberry, Johnlock, Supercorp, (and many others) where thousands and thousands of people believe in it and have countless undeniable arguments in favor of the same theory (and let’s be honest, it wouldn’t even matter that much since it’s sooo obvious), why would it be so stupid to even think about it? Give your series some new sparkly twists goddamit!
Make a queer person angry and you’ll have to deal with the whole squad, and trust me you don’t want to try it. We basically run your series. You should’ve learned with Clexa.
So, you’ll probably never see this because I’m nobody, but if you do please don’t ignore us.
OKAY so as you guys probably already know I love making theories lmaooo and I have more than one so I’m going to keep updating this post with new information/new theories until TS6 is revealed!!
So this is my original theory that TS6 will drop on Friday October 13th, 2017, because it is the last Friday the 13th this year and Taylor is hella extra™
Taylor blacked out all of her social media accounts as well as her website, store, youtube, and myspace… during an eclipse, everything blacks out for a period of time
There’s going to be a total solar eclipse across the entire continental united states in a few days for the first time in 99 years
A total solar eclipse is usually a once in a lifetime thing just like this album
An eclipse often symbolizes new beginnings and a cleanse, which could make a lot of sense for this album after everything Taylor has been through in the past 3 years
Eclipses are extremely emotional/moving events, and Taylor has always been known to write about things that move people
Taylor’s tumblr fades from pink to black, which again is in a sense what happens during a solar eclipse: the light fades away to black
Taylor has posted several pictures while wearing stars on her outfits, as well as her star flash tattoo. Also, the newest TSNow promo from Taylor Nation looks kinda spacey.
Taylor sent a CD of 1989 to space and wrote “Going to space!” on it… that could have potentially been a clue!
Kesha said she was collaborating with another artist and used 13 emojis, so we assumed that it’s Taylor. However, the emojis weren’t just random, they were stars and meteors (and unicorns)!!
Before and after the totality period of a total eclipse, shadow snake patterns form on the ground. Taylor’s first post since the blackout was a gif of either a rattlesnake or potentially a dragon (see bulletpoint below).
If the gif was a dragon, it also supports this theory because there is a Chinese myth that states that a solar eclipse is a dragon eating the sun.
Social media is just one big masquerade when you think about it, full of people essentially wearing masks and pretending to be people they aren’t, as well as using it for anonymity
In that sense social media is also very fake in the sense that nothing about it is tangible and oftentimes it’s superficial, just like masquerades
Taylor could have blacked out her social media and deleted everything to signify that she’s done participating in the social media masquerade
She could have been giving us a hint by participating in the IDWLF music video, where there were fancy masquerade masks present
TS6 could be about time, or in a sense the lack of time… maybe the 13th hour? Because it only exists on the 24-hour clock, which isn’t widely used in the united states, so in a sense the 13th hour wouldn’t exist
On one of her posts on instagram the caption was “Til. The. End. Of. Time.” so maybe TS6 is about what happens when time ends, or when time stops… such as moments that make time seem to stop or slow down or speed up, or even getting lost in the moment
Taylor blackout out all of her social media is in a sense erasing her social media history, which could relate to the absence of time
It could also touch upon how time isn’t actually a real tangible thing, and is simply something that we use to explain how we go through life
Potential titles could be: epoch, chrono
A song was temporarily released on youtube titled “Timeless” (some people think Taylor released it some people think somebody was impersonating her); there’s also a website called timeless.com that says coming soon. The concept of “timeless” ties in perfectly with this theory in the sense of lost time, nonexistent time, or erasing time.
Scott Borchetta posted pictures about time on his social medias.
So I came up with this quite a while ago, and it was because of the black and white pictures that Taylor had been posting.
It could also explain the social media blackout, since noir means black
The whole noir genre could make for a very conceptually interesting album/era
So this theory isn’t that well developed, but it’s simply because Taylor blacked out all of her social medias/websites
It could also have an interesting meaning as to how she could potentially approach social media in the future if this proves true
APRIL 2017. Talk about Venezuela. Venezuela is a war zone.
Please stop scrolling and read this.
No I am not going to ask you to donate money. I am simply making this post in order to educate the world on the situation in my home country, Venezuela.
So please, if you can, read and share.
Because despite the fact that my country is starving, people are dying because of lack of medicine or hospitals and the streets are so dangerous one can barely go out, there is little to no coverage about this, even other Latino countries have no idea because they’re never informed, never educated. Our struggles, our deaths, our DICTATORSHIP are never broadcasted. The more you read, the more you’ll understand why.
I would like to say, if you press “read more” you will see graphic pictures of oppression, poverty, police brutality and blood.
