all the telepaths aboard the enterprise always either look at spock weird or are very amused by him but none of them will tell why and it’s because despite spock’s stoic façade he is in fact just constantly screaming in his head
It’s really interesting to me that what is arguably Lance’s greatest strength is also his biggest source of insecurity.
Like, this boy is so adaptable. You can throw him into space, into a war, into a new lion, and he’ll essentially shrug his shoulders and slot himself into place. What makes the kid a powerhouse is that you can put him in any circumstance and he’ll find out where he fits and pretty much be able to hold his own there. He can integrate himself into basically any group dynamic (see: rebel mermaids, Hunk + Lance + BoM, and Team Voltron after Shiro). What Lance brings to the table is an ability to do what’s needed, to fill roles that need filling, and to mesh with anyone.
But, for someone who values standing out, that would be seen as a negative trait. Lance wants to carve out his own place in the group– it’s why he’s so attached to the idea of being the “sharpshooter” (though, that does appear to be a niche of his!!). To him, it seems like everyone else around him has this “thing” that makes them special and unique– and, since he doesn’t (or, at least, he thinks other people don’t think he does) he feels sort of average and unskilled by comparison.
The creators have said before that Lance’s character is about “providing what’s needed at the time” and like. Exactly. His “thing” is that he can essentially take on any “thing” you need him to and do it at least decently. That’s what makes him unique, and I can’t wait to see him realize it.
i sometimes think about how jake peralta went from someone who was uncomfortable with emotions, who would’ve rather been a lone wolf, who thought he had no real family and would end up alone, to someone who regularly says “i love you” openly to amy and terry and holt and his squad, who communicates his affection and resolves his fears with others, who clearly has his friends’ backs just as they do his, and i just get randomly emotional about his character growth and how far he’s come
How Tater Speaks on Russian: The sun cannot compare to your beauty, the words I speak cannot describe the burning flame inside me. You make me twist with just one word fallen from your lips. I love you.
tony at the end of every avengers mission talking to thor and steve all heart-eyes like “thor??? you’re staying right???? captain??? you’re also staying???? i’ll throw us a party. you’re staying right??? you’re staying. are you staying??? you should stay. right??? that seems like a good idea so you’re staying aren’t you???”
tony @ bruce like “literally come live with me i have ten floors of pure science to share and”
tony @ clint like “i already took care of your entire medical treatment and i called in a doctor straight from korea and also drink this green smoothie. my bots made it but i picked this lidded cup and straw personally”
tony @ natasha like “[blasting AC/DC] hello base this is Shellhead ™ did you miss me. over. no nat i do NOT sound like i’ve been crying i’m actually always Fine”
This log was filmed after the boys returned to Korea, him and Namjoon got to watch Coldplay live in Seoul. As a singer who was able to watch one of his favorite artist as a fan (Hoseok, not J-Hope), he got to experience his heart flutter and feel happy, something he hadn’t felt in a long time. While he was standing there, he felt the same emotions ARMYs do when watching him perform. He felt so thankful for the fans that love and support his music. Him attending the concert made him feel emotions he hadn’t experienced in a while so he’s very happy for it. There was a slight mention about their trip to Hawaii and his mixtape, but he couldn’t speak about it because he might give away too much. Just be patient and wait for the final products. He ends his log saying Bangtan needs to finish the Wings Tour strong and healthy with honor!
you know what i love so much about niall’s social media. he just uses it like… any of us? like he doesn’t really use it like a celebrity most of the time. esp with his snapchats and insta story like he just posts sleepy selfies or embarrasses his friends or films things he thinks are cool. and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a celebrity and crafting your sm presence to be very tailored like press releases or w/e but i just love that following niall is like following an ordinary person. it’s so casual and everyday and i enjoy that so much
jack: uses gender neutral language, actively supports canon gay couples & theorizes about characters being lgbt, reaffirms that sexual assault/harassment/rape is never the victim’s fault every time it comes up, points out shitty behaviors in characters and explains why they aren’t acceptable in irl people, isn’t afraid to actually talk about sex ed or mental health issues, always open to learning more
