Craigslist Girlfriend - Part 1, Part 2 -Sanvers fake dating (from the Craigslist post advertising a platonic date in exchange for free food) with background Lucy/Vasquez and Kara/Mike -Part 1 is cracky as fuck; part 2 is half crack/half fluff
Welcome to the Gayborhood, Danvers (multi-chapter long fic)
Thanksgiving comes in is Chapter 21, followed by long Thanksgiving weekend smut for literally 10 more chapters…your call on whether you want that much gratuitous smut mixed in with some feelings and fluff -Sanvers and Supercorp -Coming out to Eliza; supportive family (written before we found out about Maggie’s backstory, so she also has a supportive family in this one); fluff; followed by many, many chapters of increasingly kinky smut
“When I ask you if you want to do something, you know it’s always okay to say no, right?”
“Let me know if you get uncomfortable, okay?”
“How do you feel about (x activity)?”
(When someone’s insecure about having said no and asks if it’s okay/if you’re mad or upset they said no) “I’m disappointed, of course, but I’m really glad you were willing to tell me (no/that you were uncomfortable/etc.). That’s really important to me. Thank you.”
“I’d ALWAYS rather be told no than make you feel pressured or do anything to hurt you or make you uncomfortable.”
“I care about you, so when something I do hurts you or makes you uncomfortable, I want to know, because I don’t like making you feel bad.”
“Wanna do (x)? It’s okay if not, but I think it would be (fun/worthwhile/prudent).”
(When starting a social phone call): “Hey, are you busy right now?”
(When confirming plans made earlier): “Hey, are you still up for doing (x) at (time) on (day)?”
“Can I vent a little about (x)?”
“Can I tell you something (gross/depressing)?”
“Are you comfortable talking about it?”
“Do you think you could talk me through this problem I’ve been having? If you have the time and emotional energy of course.”
“It’s okay if that doesn’t work for you.”
“I’m interested in spending more time with you. Would you be interested in doing (x) together on (y day)?”
“No? Well let me know if you ever want to do something else.” (leave it open! don’t nag! let it go!)
Consent culture - it’s about way more than just sex!
Givepeople as much freedom as possible to make their own choices without pressure or control.
Even children deserve as much autonomy as allows them to remain safe and get their needs met - remember, you can’t train a child to make good/safe/healthy choices without ever giving them choices. A child who is taught to respect consent is a child who doesn’t assault people! A child who knows they have a right to say no is a child who knows that someone who infringes on their autonomy isn’t supposed to do that.
A consent-conscious relationship is a healthier and safer relationship, and a person who is aware of and deliberate about asking for, giving, receiving, refusing, and being refused consent is a healthier and safer person.
A list of places, objects, phrases, and new characters introduced in Season Three. All spelling is from the subtitles. Might be missing one or two. Good luck, content creators!
Puig – saved by Lance and Hunk in s3ep1, attacked again later by the Galra General Ladies. Call themselves the Puigians. Ulippa System – Throk is transferred out here. The planet/system has ice worms. Va’Kar quadrant – the Paladins set a course to this place during their search for Lotor and the comet. Planet Kythra – a tribal desert people, featuring the same large feathered ears as the aliens who rescued Matt. Pronounced “keeth-ra”. Tando people – live in the Valurian quadrant, and wear flappy loose pants. Paglium quadrant – the yellow and blue lions were spotted here between season two and three. Planet Thayserix – planet made of dense gases with unusual magnetic poles that cancel the sensors. Atmosphere has areas full of Red Syntian Nitrate, which is a highly combustible gas that goes BOOM when you shoot through it with “amplified emissions of light.” (In summary: lasers bad. Ice guns okay.) Daibazaal - original home of the Galra. The comet that Voltron was made from crashed here. Rygnirath - home of the original Yellow Paladin, Gyrgan the Dalterion Belt - home of the original Green Paladin, Trigel Nalquod - home of the original Blue Paladin, Blaytz
Terms and Objects
Red Syntian Nitrate – a highly combustible gas found in parts of Thayserix’s atmosphere. See above. Skort pantaloons – flappy loose pants traditionally worn by the Tando people. Bogwaggle-cape – can be trained to sing theme songs. Coran had one back in the day. Nanothermite titanium-boron – the bomb that broke Matt out of galra prison Tel-Galax exploration shuttle – one of King Alfor’s deep space vessels. The team come upon it half-suspended between realities. Note: This ship in particular is Commodore Trayling’s ship. Non-cogs – a term used by trans-reality Alteans that refers to people controlled by the hokril. Hokril – a device that plugs directly into one’s brain via the back of the skull. This device saps the fighting force from a person – from “enemies”. Used by the trans-reality Alteans to bring “peace”. Klygarg – a computer or database of some sort. Transmissions can be logged on this device, which needs a password to activate.
Note: the comet that Voltron was made from, as well as Lotor’s new battle-ship, is never specified by name. The ship (and Voltron) are said to be made from the “ore” produced by the comet – but the comet itself currently has no specified name.
By King Groggery the Infirm! – used by Coran as an exclamation. Fun fact: King Groggery the Infirm is also on the Altean currency that Coran tries to bribe the mall-directory!Unilu with in Space Mall (Season 2.7). By the ancients – another one of Coran’s exclamations. Hold your gazurgas, everyone! – thank you, Coran. And I’m the Phoblan of Gargalax – Shiro’s taller captor uses this as a sarcastic statement of disbelief, similar to “sure, and I’m the King of France.” By willow! – Gyrgan exclaims this at least twice.
Guns of Gamara – really, Sven?
Lotor’s Generals Ezor – awesome. ‘ribbon-hair’ Galra Narti – blind with a kitty. Also has tail. Zethrid – big fluffy ears. Always down to fight. Acxa – the Galra Keith met in the weblum. Note: the subtitles spell her name differently almost every time.
Original Paladins Zarkon, from planet Daibazaal – original Black Paladin King Alfor, from planet Altea – original Red Paladin Gyrgan, from Rygnirath – original Yellow Paladin Trigel, from the Dalterion Belt – original Green Paladin Blaytz, from Nalquod – original Blue Paladin
Miscellaneous Commander Throk – attempts to undermine Lotor Commander Trayling - was in charge of the exploration shuttle the Paladins discover. Sven – ………. General Hira – the pink-haired Altean met in the trans-reality. Refers to Allura as ‘Empress.’ Her companion with the spectacles is never named. Moxilous – a “non-cog” controlled by the Alteans in the trans-reality Vakala – tiny alien on the ice planet fake!Shiro/Kuron lands on. Their companion, the larger alien, is not named. Subject Y0XT39 – approved for use in Operation Kuron. Note: Shiro’s fugitive number is 117-9875. (Season 1.10) General Raht – assigned by Haggar to keep an eye on Prince Lotor. Honerva – Haggar’s original name Kova – Honerva’s cat. Same species as the cat that Narti uses to see through – possibly the same cat? Maybe season 4 will tell us.
Art trade with @yunyin! Her request: a funny/awkward reveal where the kids come up with a code word/phrase in case they can’t transform and need to convince the other of their identity. And what’s funnier/more awkward than Ladrien?
It wasn’t until the akuma trapped Adrien and Ladybug in the elevator together that Adrien remembered two things: one, his ring was back at the studio on the fifth floor, and two, he wore pants made entirely out of faux fur, and nothing else.
jack tends not to get drunk on purpose very often, so when he’s the DD/only sober guy hanging out with the crew, he’s come to notice the weird but distinct drunk personalities of all his friends and has even named them:
bitty gets 110% more southern and 110% less filtered after a few drinks. he calls everyone out on their shit, dances super provocatively (RIP jack), and uses idioms that literally no one else in the room can understand. jack calls this persona Moomaw, because he’s met the actual Moomaw and the similarities are many and frankly disturbing. bitty hates him a little for it, and withholds kisses until jack stops calling him that. (out loud, that is)
lardo remains very much herself – quiet, confident, mysterious – until someone falls over or says something dumb and then she literally Ron Swanson giggles for twelve minutes straight. he calls this the Gigglemonster and Lardo does NOT know about this because she would probably kick him in the shins for it if she did
ransom’s the rare, lucky Happy Drunk. everything is great all the time and god everyone in this bar is fucking ‘swawsome!!!! what a great night!!! he’s the easiest to corral into jack’s truck after a night of partying. jack calls him Mr. Smiles and ransom is 100% ok with this
holster’s the opposite, the fucking Mess. he gets into weird arguments with strangers, loses all concept of an inside voice, and serenades literally any girl (or hot guy) if left alone for more than a few minutes. falls down stairs a LOT. has no understanding of personal space or manners. his persona is called Chad because he’s kind of a dick and he resents jack for this more than he hates him for the Cruel Sheep Empire. chad will only listen to mr. smiles, but mr. smiles is easily distracted and not good at telling people off, so it’s usually up to moomaw and then things get dicey.
shitty is a Drunk Crier, point blank. cries when he’s happy, cries when he’s sad, cries because jack bought him mcdonalds to shut him up, cries because lardo is the coolest person he’s ever known, cries because of social injustice in the world, cries because bitty snuck individually packaged jello shots into the club in the pockets of jack’s cargo pants – literally he’ll cry for any reason and it happens at least once an outing. Jack calls him Weepy McGee and shitty rolls with it.
one day tater will get drinks with jack and the crew and will ask, loudly, why holster is arguing with the bartender over the exact mixture of crap in his long island iced tea and jack will simply answer, “oh, that’s just Chad being Chad,” and all hell will break loose when holster overhears.
