Lance: (screams and either flails backwards and gets caught in his jacket, or he jumps into hunk’s arms)
Hunk: (raises his arms up to protect his face and twists his knees inward like he has to go to the bathroom. also automatically prepares to catch lance)
Keith: (jumps (it’s more like a hop) backwards and tries to pull out his knife. he’s usually successful in getting his knife out but if you really get him flustered he ends up accidentally flinging his fanny pack at you)
Pidge: (jumps three feet into the air and tries to climb the nearest person and/or wall and/or object. if she’s holding technology, she will protect it first and her body second)
Shiro: (falls into a fighting stance. his face says calm and prepared leader, but his eyes scream he’s not going back to jail)
Coran: (flails around in a bunch of over-exaggerated vaguely karate like movements. before you know it, you’re completely disarmed and on the ground, and he’s standing above you posed like a ballerina)
Allura: (yells and instinctively punches a hole straight through the wall. the metal wall. like it was nothing. the mice atop her head chirp at you in a scolding manner. you flee the scene, lucky to be alive)
Frizz. Frizz my dude. Holy shit. Of all the king dices I’ve seen so far, it’s the first time I’m blushing when I look at your most recent one, fuck, congratulations, I’m so confused and angry at myself wHY IS YOUR KING DICE SO SPICY
OK so, one thing bothered me watching the “Honor and Glory” Overwatch short, why is the animal on Reinhardt’s armor different?
In every other time we’ve seen Reinhardt, his symbol, which was always on his armor’s left forearm and etched into his hammer, was a lion. Which is a great symbol for Reinhardt, but in the short it wasn’t a lion at all.
It’s a Griffin. Which got me thinking, why is it a griffin?
In Germanic heraldry, a griffin is meant to symbolize courage, militaristic strength and leadership, as well as boldness, and are always allured by powerful, fearsome monsters. Griffins are meant to symbolize the amalgamated strengths and weaknesses of its halves, the Lion and the Eagle.
In heraldry, the Lion (King of beasts) was symbolized by courage, strength, nobility, and valor. Whereas the Eagle (King of the skies) also symbolizes courage and valor, as well as vision, intellect, and immortality.
In the short, I believe the griffin represents Reinhardt. A powerful and courageous leader, but bold, and blinded by glory and the search of a good challenge. He was overzealous, he charged in to combat, leaving his team behind, so he could revel in his own glory, he was selfish.
But he changed, and we saw the change happen.
When Reinhardt agreed to leave Balderich to hold off the omnics, and to go defend his team, He was no longer blinded by glory, or the pursuit of a fearsome enemy for him to overcome, he was humbled, he was grounded.
At this moment, Reinhardt was no longer a griffin, he was no longer blinded by glory or chasing a challenge, his head was no longer in the clouds, the eagle of Reinhardt’s griffin left him at that moment, and he was left as the courageous, but humble lion we know him as today.

Your blog is like that one friend who throws kit kats at people's head which is to say Great and I Have A Dependency On It
this is such a specific metaphor i love it
*lance voice* “you guys should build the mice a mouse voltron. like a little voltron action figure that could kick your ass. that’d be so cute”
how betrayed do you think coran was when red chose lance
i mean! he’s proud! of course he is!
but like… lance didn’t even have a cape on :/
allura, after meeting the paladins: “are we… friends now?” shiro: “if we say yes will you let us live” allura: “ha! good one new best friend”
pidge’s current concern is that green might be salty at her for being a dog person
hunk toggles between “hype man” and “most embarrassing best friend possible”
hunk: [supports lance no matter how bad the comeback]
also hunk: “oh is this about your handcuff thing-” “I DON’T HAVE A HANDCUFF THING”
hunk: “i dunno about this man. jumping out of planes is dangerous. they say one in five people don’t even make it to the ground.” keith: “??? what do you mean they don’t make it to the ground??? where do they go???”

I had never heard Uptown Funk before seeing you reblog a gifset of it, but now not only can I not stop listening to it, but every time I hear "I'm too hot Make a dragon wanna retire man" I think of Hawke and it makes me giggle
A very, very special commission for an equally special person. @brewess was the first person whose character I got to draw (because well she has the most amazing characters and it’s always been instant love on my side!) …AGES ago. I was just a wee lad, who had just arrived on scary tumblr land… here we are,some years after that day, older, none the wiser lol… and destiny wanted the first artwork to come out of my new computer to be for her, once again. Good omen, for sure. Anyway,
