“Hey, I just shoot the guns.” “You know that’s my line, right?”

Taking ‘Dronies’ with Traveler and Drone Photographer @wrenees
To see more from Renee’s travels, follow @wrenees on Instagram.
“The first time I ever saw a drone, I knew that I wanted to have one,” says Renee Lusano (@wrenees), who uses her drone to photograph vast landscapes. “Drones really appeal to me because they’re a fun toy, but also a photographic tool. And as I started to travel more, I thought a drone would be a great way to experience, capture and photograph more on each of my trips.”
A freelance designer based in Los Angeles, Renee takes advantage of her flexible schedule to travel the world, visiting far-flung places like Antarctica, Easter Island and Siberia with her friends (and sometimes with a hot dog costume). “I don’t enjoy having a routine,” she says. “The days and weeks are more memorable when I’m having new experiences.” Renee began creating @dronies — selfies with a drone — that “first show a somewhat mundane photo of myself, and then as the drone flies up, it reveals that I’m in some expansive and incredibly beautiful place. Soon, you don’t even see me — it becomes not about the selfie, but about the scale of the environment I’m in.”
Lo is known, I think, primarily for her
Kylux/Reader work, so I’ve included one of those, here—but she has great work
outside of that, too. Her work gets straight to the fucking (hohoho) point and
is just excellent smutty fun.
Whenever I Want: This is a Kylo Ren/Hux/Reader threesome—and it’s one of those
that, despite me not being into Hux, like, at all, I find myself still thinking
about. I think that alone is a testament
to its hotness—but it also has some good, nasty shit like cum-sharing and
Kylo Gets Off: The title is self-explanatory. We all love Kylo Ren jerking off.
But getting nearly 1000 words of it is such a blessing. He jerks off to the
thought of fucking Hux and Reader at the same time. Usually I don’t like
sharing someone’s fantasy spotlight, but I love this.
Punishment:I’ve recc’d this before on, like, two other lists, but I won’t stop
reccing it, because I love it so much. This was, I think, one of the first
sub!Kylo fics I read and loved. I still think about the line, “It’s so good,” he answered. “So warm and
fucking wet…” Like, kill me please.
If you’re looking for weird stuff, sad stuff,
or bloody stuff, Jinx is your girl. Not only does she have unique takes on
certain AUs—her writing is fantastic. Her descriptive language is dark and
poetic and beautiful.
A Full Confession: Okay, this seems self-aggrandizing, but hear me out. Almost
all of the ideas in this fic, and a ton of the gorgeous/tongue-in-cheek imagery
come from her. It’s easily some of her best writing, and you’d be doing
yourself a disservice not to check it out for that reason.
Exposed:I really love vampires. I really love Kylo Ren. So why not both? This
is the answer to that question. Good imagery, hot sex. Is there any more we can
ask for from a Vampire!Kylo fic?
The Angst Files, Chapter 3:All of the chapters in this collection are great,
but this one is a favorite. Not only for the idea of Kylo Ren getting hard from
his own tears, but the sex is visceral, too. A Sad Boy Sex Hall of Famer, for
Maybe even more than she loves writing Kylo
Ren, Beth loves writing Ben Solo. Her Ben Solo work is fantastic, and I’ve
included one of my faves. Her smut is raunchy and her dirty talk is nasty as
fuck. She pulls no punches.
Frozen NSFW: Beth will probably kill me for putting this here, but oh well, I’ll
face death bravely. Frozen NSFW is a fantastic collection of dubcon/noncon scenes
as Reader navigates her life as Kylo Ren’s new sex slave. And Kylo is just… an
asshole. A hot, sexy, asshole.
Solidarity: I’ve recc’d this before, too, but, look. I said this was the
greatest hits, goddammit. The sequel to another piece she so thoughtfully wrote
for me, you’ll find doggy-style dubcon inside. I frequently think about the
line, “Fuck this is the perfect little
cunt. I think I need this to greet me at the end of every day.” Christ.
A Hasty Landing: Just one of many great Ben Solo pieces, this is one of my
faves because of the intimacy and heat captured. I love the way Ben is written—snarky
and naughty and fun.
It was hard narrowing down the list of Fae’s
fantastic works to just three. There’s so much by her that I truly love. She’s
incredible at laying down themes in even the shortest one-shots, her
characterization is always engaging, and her imagery is unique and evocative.
On the Desk: I’ll be honest. I’ve probably gotten off to this thing like five
or six times. Professor AUs are hot, but this is just beyond everything I could
want from one. Professor Ren is dirty as hell.
Okay, Fine: No smut in this—but it’s one of my favorites. A twist on the
sweetness of a Coffee Shop AU, this fic instead features an antagonistic relationship between Kylo (in
his triplet form) and Reader. Enemies to Lovers, perhaps? Great dialogue, great
characterization, great narrative. It’s good-feelsiest fic around.
Don’t Tell Kylo: In this fic, you’re double-teamed by Organa Solo triplets Ben
and Matt. This fic is a perfect hallmark of Fae’s style—it’s hot with a
consistent thematic foundation and strong emotions.
Because Kat is known most widely for Love
is a Four Letter Word, I wanted to take this time to point out a few of their
other excellent works. Kat’s narrative style is so immediate and engaging, and
their language has the ability to drag tears of out of me, which is, like,
All Tied Up:This work is heavy noncon. Reader is kidnapped by the twisted
triplets and horrible things happen. You should absolutely not read this if it
isn’t your thing, but I could not fail to recommend it because if it is your thing, it’s fucking hot as hell,
and you’ll love it.
On Display: Reader is fucked against a window by Kylo Ren, an officer gets off
to the show. Exhibitionism/voyeurism are one of my big kinks, and this piece
just… hits all the right spots. One
of my faves.
Infraction: In relative terms of the
Kylo Ren fandom, this piece is older. But it’s still one of the hottest in my
memory. It has one of my favorite lines in fanfiction ever: “Yes, you would. You’d never leave, the only
thing you’d ever have to do is get fucked.” *SWEATS*
I’m going to imagine Tora will be shocked
I even included her, but she hardly gives herself enough credit. She’s been the
only person who’s managed to get me to enjoy Hux outside of a Kylo/Hux/Reader
context. Her sense of humor and sass come through brilliantly in her writing.
Valentine’s Day:I have to be honest. I really enjoy these Hux drabbles. As
mentioned, Hux isn’t my guy. But the banter and snark here makes me think maybe
he could be my guy.
Untitled: Another Hux/Reader drabble, which I won’t title as “this is dumb”
because it isn’t. There’s great sexual tension captured between Reader and Hux,
and the unexpected cigarette burn is so salacious.
De-Stressing: This piece is Kylo/Reader—and there’s daddy kink. Look, y’all know I don’t typically go for daddy kink,
but this one is enjoyable. If it’s your thing, this is right up your alley.
After making my way through most of the klance tag on ao3 I thought I’d share the ones that have stuck the most with me so far. honestly this fandom is a blessing, these authors are a blessing, these dumb space gays are a blessing. so in no particular order, please, have some klance;
Cheeky by rideahorse / a short and sweet oneshot that involves both kissing and incessant bickering, and honestly with this pair, what more could you ask for. rated T.
official summary: Keith pinches his eyes shut, slamming the book down again and swiveling to face Lance. “Oh my god,” he groans, standing up and crossing the two feet between them before Lance can get out a word. He grabs Lance’s face between his hands (perhaps a bit rougher than needed, but hey, he’s always wanted to slap Lance’s stupid face) and the last thing he sees is an expression of pure surprise before he leans down and presses his lips against Lance’s.It’s a peck, and it lasts a second, and then it’s over. Keith leans back, releasing Lance’s face, and hisses, “There.”
if it takes two by velvetcrowbars / Lance has a confession to make and Keith is a knight in shining armor (sorta). a well written oneshot that Lance is absolutely not going to remember in the morning. rated T.
official summary: After the Sendak attack, Keith and Lance deal with unresolved things. Whatever those might be.“Keith?”“What?” He finally says, safely slipping the piece over Lance’s head with minimal knocking against his temple. He sets the discarded parts on the floor next to the bed.“I have a confession.”
never been kissed by kairiolette / I got a pretty good laugh out of this one, Keith and Lance have a Quality Bonding Moment™ at a local alien burger joint and things may or may not get a little out of hand. not that either of them are really complaining. rated G.
official summary: “You give off the obnoxious popular vibe. The mullet, and the rap sheet, and—the fingerless gloves,” Lance replies, and barrels on before Keith can take it the wrong way. “I’m so handsome, my name’s Keith and I’m a pilot.”“That sounds more like a compliment than an insult,” Keith says slowly, a disdainful quirk to his eyebrows that only spurs Lance on. He tilts his head a bit, his bangs shadowing his face, like he’s assessing a particularly impossible physics problem. “And I don’t like that voice you’re using.”
A Fish And A Bird by Methoxyethane/ I loved this fic, adored it to be totally honest. the writing is excellent and the plot is funny while also being meaningful. could alternatively be titled “Keith and Lance take miscommunication to a whole new level and then some”. rated T.
official summary: Lance has a boyfriend. Lance does not realize he has a boyfriend. Keith, understandably, does not react well.
head to head, neck and neck, side by side by kushling / lance actually wins a spar with keith and he is so incredibly baffled that he 100% misses the 5000 implications of keith’s super massive gay crush on him. also, avatar references. definitely worth the read. rated T.
official summary: Lance and Keith both like sparring, Avatar, and each other. They have a hard time admitting it. Pidge makes fun of them. Space swords!!!
Stranded by cyborgtoaster/ keith and lance end up being both very cold and very gay, in that order. denial is rampant and i definitely snickered once or twice during this one. rated T.
official summary: On a mission gone wrong, Keith and Lance end up stranded on a barren planet during an unexpected ice storm. Left to their own devices, they have to find a way to keep warm for the night. For once, maybe they can get along and only increase their unresolved feels.
moments of silence by attemptsonwords / really well written and great character capturing. lace is super bi and keith is really really frickin gay, together they both start to put the pieces of their relationship together. rated T.
official summary: Quiet moments between two boys who spend most of their time yelling at the other.
Drive! by wolfgun / set in an earth-centric au, keith has obviously never attended a child safety course in his entire life since he thinks jumping into a strangers car and screaming “Drive!” is an acceptable escape plan. it’s like a sleepover au but better. rated T.
official summary: “C'mon, c'mon, c'mon! Don’t you know how to drive? With a car like this, you can’t tell me you just love to mosey on down the road like a goddamn geezer,” he taunted. “What is this? Just a bit of daddy’s money and mommy’s rules?”“I’ll show you geezer, mullet-head!"Au Prompt: You’re getting chased by the police and you just jumped in my car and yelled drive, wtf man (except it’s not cops because Lance’s mom would kill him for bringing home a wanted teen)
I’ve got 99 problems and you’re every single one by kitwitt / lace is so deep in denial it’s almost physically painful to witness, keith is so amazingly gay that’s almost physically painful, too. for an explicitly rated fic a majority of the (currently 4/5) chapters are more fluff then smut. well written and witty, keith is a snarky little shit and it’s great. rated explicit.
official summary: “Obviously I’m not gay.” Lance floundered, voice breaking to a higher pitch. Shiro tilted his head slightly. “But you have a crush on Keith.” … In which Lance fails to mask his attraction to a certain pilot under the ruse of rivalry, and everyone knows but Keith.
official summary: When Hunk called the Sunday before the spring quarter began, asking if he wanted to grab brunch with him, Lance said yes; and when Hunk called again, saying that his friend was joining at the last second, Lance didn’t think anything of it.Until said friend was the best sex he’s ever had.Basically Lance is a screw up and fixing this mess was probably going to kill him.
I could absolutely keep going and going and going (and going) because there are so many great klance fics floating around out there. I definitely encourage you to root around in the tag for yourself if you haven’t already. huge shout out to all the voltron fanfiction writers out there, every single one of you are in my heart. every. single. one.
thats all for now kids, tune in next time for more Quality Space Gay™ fanfiction recommendations !
Bunch of photo studies I did based on images found on google and documentary screencaps. I feel like this is a great exercise to capture light/color and composition. I am planning to do some personal project paintings based off of this exercise.
If Zarkon, Haggar, and maybe Lotor were not affected by quintessence, they’d be such an amazing family. A crazy smart mother who can teach Lotor everything there is to know and an amazing leader as a father who happens to pilot the Black Lion. They’d be the best looking family in all of the universe and arguably the most powerful.
I just imagine an alternate reality where the quintessence didn’t taint Honerva. Where Zarkon and Honerva never forgot about their love for one another. Where they lovingly raised a beautiful son who would be the heir to the Galra Empire. Where the friendships between the original paladins remain strong.
