glory be to him

digging that one flag

Someone tried to tell me that Tarkin was not petty in the slightest.

I care to disagree.

listen, i know everyone wants tony to have this final big arch where he dies. and i’m in my corner wanting him to live out a happy life with pepper in the middle of nowhere, with a bunch of genius little kids running around with baby DUM-Es.

i need jason to meet sally 

Hunk is cowardly in canon but he’s slowly overcoming it as he grows more confident in himself, both as a pilot and a Paladin of Voltron.

Lance is self-absorbed in canon and thinks a lot about personal glory but we’re seeing him overcome that, esp in season 3 when he realizes war isn’t a participation game. It’s bigger than him.

Pidge is selfish in canon and put her family over the fate of the entire universe but realized ultimately that everyone in the universe has families, and she needs to fight for them all.

Keith is impulsive/a lone-wolf in canon with little regard for others’ and what they think but he’s actively working on it and trying to be better at slowing down and actually listening to his teammates and working with them, not against them.

Shiro and Allura similarly, in canon, internalize their problems and try to shoulder everything by themselves and think the weight of the Universe rests on them alone but they’re both starting to realize they can’t do that and they need to be able to let go and share the burden with others.

The point of this post is to remind people that these characters have flaws, and what I listed is just one of them for each, but the point is, these characters, just like humans, have flaws that they’re learning to overcome, in their own time. That’s the whole point of fiction. You see characters with flaws and you root for them to overcome those flaws and be better versions of themselves. Just because these characters have flaws, doesn’t mean they don’t have strengths. Just like actual humans, fictional characters have,  are supposed to have a good balance of both to make them more three-dimensional and interesting.

Battle Scars by @sappypotter (29k)
Spiders, rats, wrongly-boiled Veritaserum, a couple of dangerous bets and drunk parties – all with all, it was bound to be a hectic eight year at Hogwarts for the golden trio. Trying to ignore the ex-Death Eater Draco Malfoy, however, turned out to be more difficult than ever before. Especially when he seemed to be as obsessed with Harry as Harry was with him.

Welcome to the Broom Closet by incapricious (23k)
Harry thinks he knows how his life will go: Become an Auror. Marry Ginny. Have a family. But then he sees an advertisement in the paper that no one else can see, and his life is turned upside-down. The Broom Closet: you can be anyone you want while you’re there, but you won’t remember it in the morning.

Serpentes by xErised (29k)
It’s a shame that Draco Malfoy looks so good stripping in a club with stolen snakes, because Auror Harry’s got a job to do. 

Date of a Lifetime by @dorthyanndrarry (14k)
At this year’s fourth annual New Horizons charity auction
and gala there will be a most rare and unusual item up for bid,
a Date with the hero of the wizarding world, Harry Potter!
Pansy leaned into his arm, “Would you win Potter?’ she asked and before he could answer she held up an ornate card.
Draco’s eyes widened and he reached out for the invitation.
Pansy twitched it back, “Draco,” she said quietly, “I will only give this to you if you win that ridiculous Potter date.” 

Never Feel the Burning Light by @carpemermaidtales (48k)
When it falls to Draco to restore his family name to its former glory the road ahead of him is long, but with Harry Potter’s help and a plan that is just this side of ridiculous he just might succeed at accomplishing his goals and getting what he wants. What neither of them plan on is falling in love along the way. 

The Lip-Lock Jinx by cassisluna (20k)
It’s a jinx that renders the victim mute, unless he/she serves the purpose of the jinx and kisses the person that they desire. It’s just Harry’s luck that he’s in love with Draco. 

Hey, Potter by SunseticMonster (16k)
Harry returns to Hogwarts for his 8th year, determined not to let Malfoy get to him. But when the snarky teasing starts up again, Harry finds that returning the jibes with compliments has a far more interesting outcome.

All Life is Yours to Miss by Saras_Girl (114k) [[podfic]]
Professor Malfoy’s world is contained, controlled, and as solitary as he can make it, but when an act of petty revenge goes horribly awry, he and his trusty six-legged friend are thrown into Hogwarts life at the deep end and must learn to live, love and let go.

The Moon Looks Lovely Tonight by Omi_Ohmy (35k)
When Harry moves into the damp and empty Black house, it doesn’t quite feel like home. And then the first owl moves in. After that, it’s a steep slope leading to bed-sharing, more owls, assorted housemates, strange potions experiments, and terrible cooking. And a bit of waltzing, too.
