It was finally the off season. You were excited to finally have Miles to yourself. It had been a hectic season with Miles as a Devils Prospect. You had just gotten off of work and you couldn’t wait to get home. You rushed home, lucky you didn’t get yourself a ticket. You wanted a quiet night at home with your boyfriend, well maybe not so much quiet. You might have even slipped off your panties from under your pencil skirt. You quickly stuffed them in your purse. You quickly unbuttoned the first few buttons of your shirt, hoping Miles would get the idea. 

You walked in the door, “Hey Baby, I’m home.” You tried to call out as sultry as you could.

Instead of the one voice, you were met with the hollers of three. You sighed walking into the living room leaning against the entry way. There was your boyfriend, sitting in the armchair in gym shorts and a t-shirt. You would have already jumped him if it wasn’t for the two other boys sitting on the couch across from him. Miles, Mikey, & Taylor were all focused on the TV, some sort of video game flashing across the screen.

 The boys hardly noticed your presence. You stayed standing there for a second, thinking about your strategy. You knew you had to play dirty and that’s exactly what you were going to do.

 You walked your way upstairs and into your bedroom. You slipped out of your heels and work clothes. You put on your tightest pair of Nike Pros and a tank top that hugged your cleavage just right. Work the assets right?

 You walked back down the stairs and into the living room. You made your way over to where Miles was sitting and sat on his lap. He quickly wrapped his arms around you and fiddled with the controller to not miss a play on whatever sports game they were playing.

 “Well Hello There Babe” He smiled at you before refocusing your attention on the game. You sat quietly for a few minutes before putting your plan into motion.

 You started squirming, moving your ass back and forth across Miles’ lap, acting like you were just bored.

 Miles leaned into your ear, “Can you stop squirming please” he almost growled.

 You smirked knowing your plan was working. Just as you were about to begin squirming again, something had happened to the game causing Miles to bounce up and down, complaining to the other boys.

 “Well, this might work,” you thought to yourself. Miles quickly stopped realizing what was happening.

 Miles scored a goal and you bounced up and down purposefully on his lap.

You felt his growing member against your bottom.

 Miles leaned in once more trying to push you from him but you just pushed harder. “Can you please stop, I know what you are doing.” He snarled.

 You batted your eyes. “Nope,” you said popping the p.

“Well aren’t you just a little attention seeker?”

 You smirked

 He scored again once he was back to focusing on the game. You once again bounced up and down, cheering on your boyfriend.

 This time he threw down the controller. “Out” He rumbled.

 You looked at him but he was staring down the other two boys across from you. He repeated himself. “Both of you, OUT.”

 The boys looked at him dumbfounded. “But we were just getting into the game,” Hall complained.

 “Yeah, What the hell dude?” Mikey questioned.

 “I said OUT” he almost yelled.

 Both boys scrambled to their feet and were out your front door, ushering you a quick goodbye.

 You stood up trying to make your way to the kitchen, but Miles quickly pulled you back into his lap, this time you straddling him.

“Oh, not so fast you little brat”

You giggled as he stood up with you still wrapped around his waist.

You didn’t think you could get to the bedroom any quicker.

He sat you down on the bed, quickly tearing off his shirt. You bit your lip and watched him as he continued to strip down to his boxers.

“Off.” He commanded standing you up.

 You loved when he took control. You knew you were in for it after frustrating him down stairs. You slowly began to take off your clothes hoping to dig yourself deeper. The moment your tank top was off you were picked up and thrown onto the bed.

 “Fuck Y/N, why do you do this to me,” he whispered as he caressed your body.

 “I’m a little attention seeker remember” you smirked running your nails down his bare back.

 “Don’t I Know it.” He responded suddenly entering you causing you to gasp in pleasure.

 You were so tight around him, moaning with every thrust. He met your moans with his own slowly placing kisses and hot breaths along your neck that drove you crazy.

 You were nearing the edge and he knew it as you dug your nails into his back. You felt him smirk against your cheek and slowed down suddenly

 “Teasing isn’t very nice now is it,” he whispered into your ear.

 He kept a slow rhythm as you groaned wanting him so badly to continue. You felt him pulsate, tensing your muscles around him. He moaned as he slammed into you once more. Your legs shook as you peaked. As you slowly came down from the high you felt him spilling inside you.

He rolled off of you as you both laid on your back, out of breath.

“Better than video games?” you asked between breaths.

“Way better than video games,” he responded as he peppered kisses all over your face causing you to burst out into giggles.

Yesterday I was so excited for this clip but now I am soooo disappointed.

1. If Sana had just shown the fb comments we saw yesterday to Isak, he would have probably showed her the receipts himself! I know Sana feels all alone but I wish she had been a bit more open.

2. This clip got me thinking…I want Sara to be called out for the way she has been treating Sana this season. and for the way the Pepsi Max girls are so ignorant and whatnot. I dont want the Girl Squad to leave the bus because of something Sara had said about Vilde over a year ago (since the girls already know how VIlde was treated badly by PM last time). Because if this gets released and Sana is at fault, then they wont see her side of things and see why is angry/sad.etc. I want everyone to find out why Sana is in pain….regardless of what Sara said about Vilde. GAHH. I didnt think about this yesterday but now I am.

3. I don’t know if drama will go down or if Sana will have a talk with Jamila and move on another way.

‘Shiro ships are power imbalanced!’

You mean…

Shallura - In which Allura who smashed down a metal door with brute strength alone, and literally threw the man like a piece of meat? Both are young and forced into situations where they had to grow up before their time which is something they can sympathize and relate to with. Not to mention there’s a lot of things both us and Allura herself have yet to discover about her.
Fly Shiro, fly!

Shunk - They’re EQUALLY intelligent and Hunk is confirmed PHYSICALLY STRONGER and if he was more battle smart/fit, could actually wreck Shiro. Hunk would probably be the castle’s reigning arm wrestling champion! People seem to also forget Hunk isn’t a pushover, if something doesn’t seem right to him, he’s going to call shit out on it and would make sure something is done about it.

Shidge - Definitely has a power imbalance, look at this take-no-shit tiny nerd own Shiro on sheer intelligence alone. Pidge made a freaking functional satellite on her own out of random metal scraps just floating in space, and has killed a man Galra. No one is safe, not even Shiro.
I think it’s also good to point out that pretty much the majority of Shidge shipper DO NOT ship them at 14 and 25, so don’t give me any of that age shit. If you argue about why people make Pidge so small, fun fact: small people exist!

Sheith - Keith is a one man army, even when he got his arse handed to him by fucking spies with god only knows how much more battle experience under their belts, he’d keep going and fought on sheer tenacity alone and eventually figured his way out. Keith ain’t no delicate flower who’d bend over backwards just because he loves Shiro, the man has proven he’s willing to make sacrifices for the greater good, even if it’s going to hurt.

Shance - Granted it’s a bit hard to find evidence for (we’re only 2 seasons in, there’ll hopefully be more material for it in the future) but Lance has already proven to be very good at improvising and think quick in stressful situations, not to mention he ain’t their sharpshooter for nothing. Plus Lance is known for being a very social creature; he’d be insanely switched on when it comes to relationships, platonic, familial, romantic, or otherwise, and he clearly knows about self care especially from an emotional standpoint.

Can we please stop dismissing these characters quality traits just to shit on ships and treating them as if they were infants? And can we please stop slandering Shiro, the man has never done any abusive thing towards any of his teammates and would never do it willingly *coughcoughKurocoughcough*, and there’s more statements confirming he’s a teen than the supposed 25 so don’t even start. As I said, we’re only 2/8 seasons into the story, which means everyone on team Voltron is going to get development and grow in both their skills and as people; 6 more seasons of watching this group become terrifying forces of nature.

And if anything, if you want to protect anyone it should be this poor 4/5 year old. Baby’s been though enough already.

Okay, so as much as I, and others, would love to see Black Paladin Lance, the picture (from a season 3 teaser) above is indicating that Keith is most likely going to take over as leader, and so people have theorised that Lance will most likely go to the red lion and Allura will pilot the blue lion. Issue sorted, right?

Not quite

Because in S2, we see how defensive Lance got over Keith even talking about Blue. He was getting in Keith’s face and insisting how he and Blue were “very happy together” - but Keith had made no mention of flying blue at all, or anyone else for that matter.


On top of that, the audience are already aware of Lance’s insecurities about himself - he’s already said he feels like the seventh wheel in the group. So if the Blue Lion has chosen him out of the other potential paladins (a born leader, a child prodigy, engineering genius, and a pilot prodigy) and they have a strong bond, why would he just give that up so easily? He already doubts his own abilities, so I highly doubt he would want to give up piloting the blue lion who may make him secure in one fact - that after 10,000 years of waiting he is worthy to be the blue paladin, and no one else.

So if Lance was to pilot a another Lion, I highly doubt he would be doing it without some major resistance. I would love to have an episode were he just flat out refuses to leave the blue lion, and he does everything he can to stay with her. Maybe Lance’s insecurities would be explored more deeply, and how he maybe doesn’t feel good enough to pilot any other lion. Not only that, I think he and Blue will have become more friendly over time and to force them apart would just be so so wrong to Lance, and maybe to Blue as well.

Voltron Theory: “Galra” Is Not a Species, Part 2

So before Season 2 came out, I proposed a theory that the species we knew as Galra was actually a genetically enhanced group of “colonized” aliens. While season 2 didn’t confirm this, it did provide a TON of new evidence.

MORE EXAMPLES OF PHYSICALLY VARIED GALRA

Again we have more examples of Galra with the same purple skin and yellow eyes, but with varying physical features. Interestingly, two Galra in particular stand out as relatively different than their Galra counterparts: Ulaz and Kolivan

Although they look distinctly Galra–tall, purple with yellow eyes–their skin looks noticeably paler than that of a typical Galra, as if the modifications have faded. Perhaps the potion must be taken regularly to maintain their forms. This theory makes sense when considering Thace too, since he’s working within the Galra hierarchy and would likely take whatever potion they’re handing out to maintain his cover.

Also there’s this line from Kolivan:

“Zarkon’s reign will be at an end, and the savagery that’s poisoned our universe can finally be cleansed.”  (ep 209)

It’s not definitive proof of course, but his word choice seems interesting.

GENETIC MODIFICATIONS

In “Escape from Beta Traz,” we see the warden forcibly extracting information from Slav through an elaborate helmet:

“Already your mind is rendering me weapons and genetic modifications.”

Interesting that these genetic modifications come in glowing purple vials that look very familiar.

And make the subject larger, stronger, and give him glowing purple eyes.

HAGGAR IS ALTEAN

This is arguably one of the biggest reveals of the season. Not only is there a third Altean still alive in the universe, but she is A) probably over 10,000 years old and B) also Galra. But how can someone be Altean and Galra at the same time? How does Allura truly know she’s Altean just because she has pointed ears and colored cheek markings? This scene suggests that Allura knows exactly what a Galra is.

BLACK LION FLASHBACKS 

But the most obvious bit of evidence is in a single screenshot from episode 207, “Space Mall,” in a flashback between Shiro and the Black Lion.

Notice the people surrounding Alfor and Zarkon are clearly of two distinct species. The purple aliens–presumably Zarkon’s kinsmen–all have similar physical features (pointed ears and a…head fin? of some kind). If the purple ones are Galra, they look nothing like the Galra of today.

We see only one Galra in season 1 with similar features:

Oddly enough, he’s the only Galra we see with pupils.

GALRA KEITH

So we know that Keith is Galra, but is he a descendant of Zarkon’s kinsmen or a product of a genetically modified Galra? Consider this quote from Steven Yeun [x]:

“Keith is a complicated character. He operates a little differently than the other paladins. He’s not the only one with a difficult family history, but his centers around the way that he is. He’s hotheaded for a reason, and he’s very talented without a lot of ways or things that he can use to express that.”

If Keith were to have some lineage of Galra that was genetically modified to be stronger/faster/etc than the average life form, it would make sense for him to be physically more capable and more headstrong than most. He’s an ace pilot, an excellent swordsman, and more emotionally driven than most. Consider the Galra mantra: “Nothing stops me but triumph or death.” Even Zarkon noticed this similarity in the season 1 finale: “You fight like a Galra soldier.” 

CONCLUSION

Since the very beginning we’ve seen hints of Zarkon’s evolutionist worldview. He values strength above all else. He would sooner allow half of a fleet to die than survive: “Weakness is an infection. Better to cut it off than let it spread.” He values Voltron, specifically the most powerful piece of Voltron, above all other assets in his vast empire. He assumes that strength is the ultimate measure of value, and therefore assumes that the Black Lion itself, perhaps the most powerful singular weapon in existence, would also value power over trust and intention. His obsession with power blinds him to smaller but still potentially threatening targets, such as Allura, a potential spy among his ranks, and the paladins themselves. 

With such a worldview, seeking to create a genetically enhanced race of beings to rule all peoples would fall in line perfectly with Zarkon’s vision for the universe. 

How to Successfully Adopt a Lifestyle Change

Not a diet. Diet implies temporary, and what we need to do is form a set of new, sustainable habits for the rest of our life.

A lot of you probably have a daydream of taking a black, billowy trash bag and planning a SWAT-style assault on your fridge and cupboards and then setting fire to the dumpster you hurl it into. Naturally, you’ll dash over to the grocery store and purchase a ton of strange-looking foods you don’t regularly eat, or never eat! Then you’ll slap on a pair of shiny new shoes and go run a 5K. This works for–some people. Honestly, few people.

The reality for many people; however, is they get off their foray after a few weeks. Why is that?

Think about it. How long did it take you to really get into the groove of your current habits? Months? Years? If you’re trying to simultaneously kiss soda and chip’s ass good-bye, change every bite of food you eat, and start a fitness routine. Guess what? Stress, stress, stress! Your stomach was used to those portion sizes (whether too large or too small) and some of your favorite snacks, your brain is literally addicted to it. A lot of people will reach nuclear meltdown levels trying to transition to a healthy lifestyle this way.

Just like it took you time to form your current habits, it’s going to take some time to form your new habits. I truly do empathize with the feelings of wanting everything to be different right now, but realistically we can only handle a certain amount of stressors and change at one time.

Start With Nutrition Habits: While I really would recommend finding a few cheeky ways to get more active, you’ve probably heard some variant of “can’t outrun your fork,” or “it’s 80% nutrition.” Well, it really is true. Being more active is absolutely crucial to improving overall health in the “endgame,”  but we’re still playing the “tutorial” and the dietary aspects of our lifestyle change are the bulk of the impact. It goes beyond that, though. I’ve written more about it here, but being a beginner can be genuinely hard at times!  It takes a lot of time and effort to get oneself to a point where they can physically and mentally handle what entails “regular, moderate exercise.” One part of making that transition easier will be better nutrition and hydration.

Start With an Easy Target: I always tell people if they drink a lot of soda, juice, or sweetened tea/coffee to start here. Sugar provides us pretty much no nutrition and removing the pulp from fruit makes juice not that great for us, either. Drinking more water is not negotiable and replacing these beverages with water will do a surprising amount of good for how you feel–all by itself. I recognize how hard this one can be to kick, but sweetened beverages really do load many people’s lifestyles with a lot of bad juju.

If you don’t have a beverage problem, maybe you do have a condiment/dressing problem and can reduce the quantities and find alternatives. Maybe you party-hardy a little too much and need to cut down on alcohol. While I said “easy target,” no one said it would be that easy, but you probably have an idea where most of these so called “empty” nutrients are coming from.

Transition Bad Habits a Few at a Time: The opening of this probably already made it clear, but Rome wasn’t built in a day. You probably have an idea of what some of your most problematic habits are, so choose one; maybe two, and see how you adjust over a week or two before considering the next step.

Small Swaps: Start switching out various items in your pantries, fridges, and lunchboxes with simple alternatives. Change white breads, rices, and pastas to brown. Take the bag of chips from your lunch and turn it into a few servings of seasonal fruit and vegetables. Pick out a leaner cut of meat and use a little less dairy, if you eat them. Little changes can have massive results.

Learn Moderation: Remember that whole sustainable part at the very beginning? Our lifestyles do need to reflect our real lives. Well, my real life has a love of chocolates, pastries, and candies. So, it’s not realistic for me to say “no chocolate, pastries, or candies.” Food molarity can be a pretty toxic outlook on eating and life in general. Instead of labeling foods as “bad,” just learn and respect the limits. There are times where you have to say, “enough, is enough,” but living in a constant state of “no” is not realistic or mentally healthy for most people. It’s OK to love indulgent food. Think about how long your life is going to be. So, now think about how dinky an occasional treat will be in retrospect.

Depending on Your Struggles, Consider Therapy: As we know, many aspects of unhealthy eating habits are actually unhealthy mental habits. Depending on the severity and exact nature of those problems, never be embarrassed to seek professional help. I struggled with stress eating and even binge eating for most of my adolescence, and finally getting help for my anxiety disorder played a pretty crucial role in improving both my physical and mental health. If it’s not a possibility at this time, consider journaling.

Walk Before Your Run: Literally and figuratively. I’m going to recommend this previous post I recently wrote again, but when you’ve gotten a few habits cracked and feel like you’re ready to start amping up your activity, start with low impact and low equipment exercises. If it has been years, or if you’ve never exercised, it takes some easing into it. I recommend walking to all beginners because we already know how to do it, have what we need to do it, and probably won’t hurt ourselves.

So, there you have it. Tackle small challenges and get your body acclimated to them before you consider some of the overarching and holistic goals you have for your lifestyle. That said, we’re all different. If you still want to try and do that 180-flip, I can’t stop you and some people are successful that way. No two people or personality types have the exact same problems or strategy for overcoming them. However, if you’ve gotten frustrated and thrown in the towel a time or two, consider the scope of change and how to realistically implement it over a period of time.  We didn’t form our old habits overnight.

A couple of thoughts/theories from Rick and Morty S03E01

ok, so i noticed some things from the episode that made me connect some things

  1.  in the scene when morty takes summer to the cronnenberged dimension and some rick guards appear, morty tries to defend himself saying he’s Morty C-137

and the guard ricks just gave each other The Look

The Look says they know something, like something doesn’t fit with what morty says, something’s off… so, maybe the memory of rick’s wife and daughter dying isn’t totally fabricated, and the rick we know and love is indeed form dimension C-137, but “his” morty isn’t, bc there is no morty from that dimension to begin with.

2. The second thing that i want to discuss is this part 

bc well, he says a lot of emotionless and crude stuff, like that the real reason why he rescued morty and summer was to be accepted in the house by beth, and that his arc isn’t about getting over his dead family bc it was fake… but man… how do u explain this

like… i think he actually cares about his family, but maybe there’s a reason why he want morty to think he is a bad person, so when he finds out he’s not his original rick he won’t be as devastated as if he thought rick was a nice person

Enrique’s recommended cartoon list

The Amazing World of Gumball

A love letter to animation through and through! Using CGI, traditional animation, flash, stop motion, puppets, clay animation, among others, a show solely created to exploit and push the possibilities this wonderful medium offers, with top-notch tongue-in-cheek humor alongside more slapstick one, the best from both Europe and America.

Courage the Cowardly Dog

Like Gumball, another love letter to animation, but with the added bonus that it’s also a love letter to classic horror films; very surreal, experimental at times, with a writing that can take you anywhere, from scaring the shit out of you, leave you uneasy, leave you uncomfortable, to just downright bittersweet feelings that never once feel forced or hamfisted, the only Cartoon Network show that has ever been nominated to an Oscar. 

Ed, Edd & Eddy

It’s surreal as fuck and it captures the feel of the old, golden era shows from the 30′s and 40′s, plus it has the best ending of a cartoon I’ve ever seen.

Harvey Beaks

It’s cute, it’s uniquely animated, it’s chock full of great characters, and it will constantly remind you of how great it was being a kid; plus, it has the thirstiest, gayest fucking bunny rabbit you’ll ever see, and you will love every second of his appearances. It’s the purest cartoon you’ll ever get to see!

King of the Hill

Relatable characters, relatable storylines, absurd situations that nevertheless always feel real enough, an MC that couldn’t be more different than us, and yet we one way or the other end up identifying with, one fo the very few adult cartoons that don’t have to rely on violence or sex to convey a mature feeling.

Star vs the Forces of Evil

Basically, america taking the magical girls genre from Japan, and just doing it right. The animation goes to shit around mid-season 1, but it recovers in season 2, the writing, however, just improves. One of the very few shows to pull off romance right, and with a constant knack at game-changing events after each season, a true example of how to do overarching plots that actually respect the audience. 

Rick and Morty

Basically everything Futurama ever wanted to be: A love letter to sci fi, with dark yet compelling storylines that are always fun as fuck, fundamentally broken characters that continually evolve without losing their essences, gracious violence, lack of reliance on tired tropes, and surprisingly emotional moments that never feel out of place nor forced. 

Golan the Insatiable.

Uniquely animated, with a very bizarre, borderline ADHD writing that nonetheless always keeps it entertaining, a pity it’s so short.

Samurai Jack

While the current season is the best animated series I’ve ever seen period, the older seasons are just a great, if much more lighthearted and a bit unfocused (mostly due to the old setup of stand-alone episodes), and while it’s true you can watch the new episodes without watching the older ones, as the season has been designed to be enjoyed like that, you can get a much better view of Jack and his current struggles by knowing what he already went through and how he used to tackle his old challenges, which makes the new ones much more striking.

Wander Over Yonder

The closest we got to a return of the old slapstick-era cartoons of the golden age, at first a bit superficial, but as the series progresses you learn to love all of its characters, which all go through their own character arcs, alongside a big overarching plot that spans the entire second season, with an excellent ending worthy of its legacy. 

The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy

An everpresent dark humor that never takes itself too seriously, broken unlikable characters you will learn to love, a constant improvement in the animation as the show moves forward, an expanded secondary cast that help bring a breath of fresh air to the formula, and just plain awesome movies and crossovers. 

And finally, special mentions with a big asterisk:

The Loud House

At its core, it’s a great, unique show with a diverse cast of characters and an interesting animation that while simplistic, has a ton of charm, and when its properly exploited, is fun as hell, but sadly, more often that not it falls into old, tired tropes, making it a frustrating chore to watch, and so far those episodes outnumber the good ones, so it’s still a mixed bag.

Gravity Falls

Everyone and their mom will tell you this is the greatest cartoon ever made, but once you disregard the “muh deepest lore” and “muh mysteries”, it kinda falls apart, mainly due to an overfocus on the first MC, Dipper, heavily distracting from most of the lore in many episodes, the complete flanderization of the second MC, Mabel, originally a great character with tons of charm that eventually devolves into a selfish bastard that never learns from her mistakes or faces consequences for her actions, and finally, a lackluster second half of the final season that kinda throws away all the build-up lore and mysteries. 

my beautiful list of klance fic recs

this one goes out to @ah-fae who was complaining about me texting her links to fics. now my favorite fics are all in one convenient place for your enjoyment, along with my thoughts on them!

nothing’s quite as sweet by dimpleforyourthoughts and thebrotherswinchester

“Keith is a barista who hates his job. Lance works at the cat shelter across the street.” [i cried. i don’t cry often when reading fics, but this one fucking got me. it’s fantastic, in both the concept and the (VERY well-written) execution. there are kitties. please read.]

i bet you look good on the dancefloor by xShieru

“‘So like in ‘Step Up’?’ // Allura shrugs. ‘Now that you put it like that - yes. I guess it’s just like in ‘Step Up.’’ // The smile that she sends Shiro’s way - followed by a shy wave, eugh - is sickening to say the least, and Lance still doesn’t believe in dance camps.” [i started this one while it was still in progress because i’d heard so many good things about it and i’m so glad i did. 7 chapters, lots of dancing, and very good writing]

Your Love Has Shown Me Proof by freshia

“‘This situation is a bit more complicated than we initially realized.’ // Lance raises an eyebrow, but Pidge is the one to question that. “Define complicated.” // Allura takes no more time beating around the bush, ‘Well, I received a transmission. Keith and Lance–from the future, that is–would like to have their daughter back.’” [keith and lance meet their daughter from the future– which is just as adorable as it sounds– but they’re not even dating?? shenanigans ensue. it’s so sweet and heart-warming. i love this so much]

tropical drink melting in your hand; we’ll be falling in love by jojotxt

“Keith just wanted a summer job to help pay for college. He didn’t expect to be coworkers with a complete asshole who hated his guts. He didn’t expect to fall for him, either.” [this fic is refreshing as fuck and full of all the pining you could ever want, with a side of beach-related fun and team voltron bonding over their summer jobs. it is so good.]

Costumed Identities by Trashness

“Lance and Keith are rival cosplayers, who only know each other by their online usernames. They are fiercely competitive, but are also desperately attracted to each other. You’d think they would just get together already, but there’s a couple of problems: // 1. Keith crossplays, so Lance has absolutely no idea that Keith is a boy. // 2. Both of them are idiots, and can’t seem to figure out that that hot cosplayer they like, is also that hot guy that they drool over every day at school.” [3 chapters, hidden identities, nerdy references, and so. much. cosplay. what more could you ask for? plus it’s hella fucking cute, if you weren’t already sold.]

i can’t help but want by aknightley

“Lance deals with the aftermath of being sucked into a black hole and stranded on an alien planet. // When Lance wakes up, all he can see is blue.” [this fic has a permanent tab open on my phone so that i never lose it. that’s how much this one means to me. this was written before season 2, so technically it’s an au where lance and keith are stranded on separate planets after the wormhole, and the only paladins they can contact are each other. it’s full of emotional bonding and poignancy and damn, the writing is so fucking good.]

you’re so sweet; will you be mine? by jojotxt

“A new bakery pops up right across the street from Lance’s bakery. // In which Lance is an idiot, Keith is an asshole, and Pidge is the next Dr. Phil.” [have you ever wanted lance and keith to send each other passive-aggressive baked goods as their rivalry blooms into friendship? look no further. seriously, stop looking and read this fic. please. i’m in love with it.]

Where The Lions Roam by Mytay

“‘ … tell me why Blue is making the moves on Keith.’ // Pidge stared at him, a touch incredulous. ‘You really haven’t figured it out?’ // ‘Pidge. I am very intelligent, but I am not a genius,’ Lance said patiently. ‘Spell it out for me.’ // ‘Well, you just sort of answered your own question,’ Pidge said, snorting. ‘Your Lion is making the moves on Keith — and by ‘moves’ I mean responding to your abject terror whenever Keith is in danger.’” [this author’s dialogue is so spot on, like i will automatically hear it in the character’s voice, and that doesn’t come to me easily. and just. lance. he deserves so much love, and this fic gives it to him.]

And you can eat as many Eggos as you want
—  The sweet and amazing Mike Wheeler that just wants his new friend El to be happy and get to live the life she deserves but nooo because in the next minute the diabolical Suffer brothers kill her off just before she was about to get a chance at a life where she’s loved for who she is and not what she can do and also the Suffer brothers made Mike watch his friend die which is completely wrong because Mike is the type of person that would jump off a cliff for his friends and was just trying to comfort and encourage El with promises and also how is this going to affect Mike in season two like literally no one is emotionally prepared to watch Mike grieving over Eleven, who will definitely be returning but we don’t know how and in what way and she’ll probably have to go through more pain and trauma than she’s already dealt with in her short life and even worse is the fact that no one has a clue how she’ll get back or even where she is because there has not been new content to overanalyze and create fan theories over in approximately 87 years and 199 days is such a long time to wait with so many questions and also Mike and Eleven were supposed to go to the freaking Snowball together

Well it almost got cold in Houston, so I decided to take advantage and wear some longer sleeves. I wish this weather would just make up it’s mind.

I love prints, so when I saw this vintage dress at the thrift store I just had to get it! I already owned this awesome fabric for the head scarf and together I thought it was a great look. 

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and my family had made plans for dinner at my Grandad’s, but yesterday he fell and broke his hip, so now our plans have all been postponed. 

It was pretty scary to see him in so much pain. Thankfully I work as a caregiver to him, so I, as well as my mom and sister, were there only minutes after the fall.

This was the whole reason I moved back to Houston…to be with and help my Grandad. My Grandmother passed away this time last year, so it’s been a strange time being in this city without her and I can only imagine how that’s affected Granddaddy, after all they were married for over 60 years (unbelievable!). 

In my family, on both my mom and dad’s sides, every event pretty much revolves around the Grands, so this season is already proving to be pretty tough for me. My Grandad is the last of my Grands and I’m really struggling with this. However, I am so so grateful to be able to be spending so much time with him now. There are so many distractions in life, the only thing that really matters are the relationships you have with people and the memories you make with them. Time is precious, don’t let it slip away from you.

Why I’m so nuts for YOI

YOI flipped my switch in a big way, in a head-over-heels way, in a Victor-dancing-with-Yuri-at-the-GPF-banquet-and-realizing-this-was-it way, and I’ve been thinking lately about why it is that I love it SO much. There are so many reasons. A million reasons. A gazillion reasons under the cut because I’m not as cruel to stick this much text at once into your dash.

okay y’all time to look into this Code Geass R3 trailer

first thing we see is:

and it looks melted? but then the next time we see the Zero mask is:

and it must be Suzaku because who else can make those jumps? but I’ll get into Suzaku in a sec.

then we see this:

that tipped cart does look like the one C.C. was riding on at the end of R2 and it’s hard to see in this picture but when i was watching it, it kind of looks like the person riding in front has green hair? but again, hard to tell. 

anyway, let’s keep going. we see this badass knightmare:

can this be Zero’s new knightmare? I just like the idea of Suzaku continuing to pilot knightmares and just destroying everyone

Jeremiah is standing in a pool with flamingos with it looks like Anya by his side when:

so something about those flamingos isn’t right, huh?

then we see her, my goddess, my queen

i love her.

AND NOW!!! the part that intrigued me the most!!!

we see this:

looks like either a track or a guard railing, and something is obviously coming down it

Suzaku, of course! riding ON TOP of something. what this is has confused me. at first I thought it was the cockpit of a knightmare that was crashing, but I don’t know how Suzaku would get outside of an ejected knightmare seat.

so i’m not really sure. it looks like it could be riding on the track? but again, not sure. all we know is that it was going way too fast and crashed and Suzaku was riding on top of it for some reason. oh, let’s also notice all those orange trees around him. was he going to see Anya and Jeremiah? 

BUT THOSE AREN’T EVEN THE BIGGEST QUESTIONS I HAVE ABOUT THIS SEEN. MY BIGGEST QUESTION IS WHY

IS HE

WEARING

HIS KNIGHT OF SEVEN UNIFORM??

Suzaku can’t even go outside without wearing the Zero outfit/mask because he’s presumed dead. no one can see his face. but here he is, defying death and being all Suzaku-like, not just without the mask but in his knight of seven uniform. but we already saw him in the Zero outfit earlier in the trailer!!!!

i love him so much. look at him. how do you not love that face. i just want him to be happy.

anyway. then we see:

Lelouch! and then it is over. but according to this, Lelouch has his geass, which means he can’t also have a code to make him immortal, too. are these flashbacks? did they go back in time somehow? i just really need a release date on this season so i can mentally prepare myself for all of this.

re: sana’s season, well … debatable.

we’re, what? 4 episodes in, out of 10, into the final season.

i get that characters need closure.

but as a muslim, as a woc, it hurts, a little bit. this season is about us. our lives are meant to be shown and represented this season. we are meant to be the main focus here. us. sana is representing us, our voices and our lives, to people who are not us.

that’s what the entire focus is meant to be on. our ups and downs and struggles and strengths and our faith. our islam.

yeah, sana is a great friend. the best you could ever have, tbh. but we already know this from the previous 3 seasons? why are we seeing this again, in her season. like, yes, that made sense to see in the other seasons, because we were seeing sana from another pov. but this season, what is the point in seeing that again? we already know sana is selfless, we already know sana is an exemplary friend. this shouldn’t be something we should be seeing again, this season?

why is she still being treated as the token poc friend, even in HER season? like, yeah, maybe its for effect, to show how time and again, sana always self sacrifices, and we get to see her reaction to being the one always self sacrificing,

but, honestly?

if we had more episodes this season, that would have been fine. but we don’t. we’re almost halfway through the final season, and the focus is still not on sana. we still haven’t gotten started or gotten anywhere near the depth of understanding of who sana is, like we had with isak, noora and eva, in their seasons, by this point. we’ve barely touched the surface with sana, if even that.

it’s either about this or that or that and this, and then sana. the only real storyline that involves sana is the russebuss stuff, and even that isn’t sana’s OWN storyline. it’s a collective storyline of all the girls.

yousana … the amount of hate i have seen sana get over unfriending yousef is disgusting. sana’s faith means more to her right now, accept that. stop hating on her for her choices just because your wish for romance wasn’t fulfilled. this season is far more bigger and far more important than it just being about a romance. romance means little to nothing in comparison to how deep this season should be going in to exploring ways to eradicate islamophobia, in to teaching people about islam. in to seeing islam being practised on a daily basis.

why is noorhelm not dead and buried already? the entire EPISODE 4 of this season has been dedicated to noorhelm, has been about noorhelm, in SANA’s season. what is that all about??? no really, what is that all about???? precious minutes have been wasted, not on sana, but on noorhelm. what the fuck?

we are almost halfway through the final season, when are we getting SANA? that’s what the muslims in this fandom want, whose lives are being represented. our voices mean something. this season is about us. we have a right to want to express our wishes.

Stiles x Reader


“(Y/N)!” Stiles yelped when you pointed your finger at your locker, letting it swing open.

“What… oh right, sorry I’m still sleepy.” You yawned, snuggling into Stiles chest when he rolled his eyes and hurried over to help you switch out your books.

“Yeah well just because you’re tired doesn’t mean you can start zapping things around!” He muttered, as you slumped against him, almost dropping you when you fell asleep. “How are you so tired?”

Chuck and Amara - the ultimate Destiel expositions

Ok so I can’t help but think of Austin Powers and Basil Exposition while writing this whole post cos thats where I learned the term as a 10 year old….

Originally posted by austinpowersquotes

Anyway! 

After writing quite a few pieces on Mary as a catalyst for the emotional growth of Sam and Dean I thought about Amara which in turn made me think about Chuck and then came an absolute lightbulb moment (for me). Chuck has already been shown as the narrator and expositional over-voice in Swan Song and alongside this and how I view nearly all Amara’s dialogue in season 11 my brain went to….

Chuck has always been important to Cas’s story obviously and it’s clear that Mary is important to Dean (and Sam’s) story. Going back I’ve noticed so many exposition moments for the bond between Dean and Cas and I realised when noting them down that Chuck often exposes Cas’s side of the story and Amara Dean’s. By exposition moments I mean something that’s not between the two of them but a parallel or an interaction with a different character that exposes their feelings towards the other. This is key on screen because you can’t know what’s going on inside a character’s mind like you can in a book, this has to come another way so you get expositions or self-aware moments like Dean’s praying/longing scene or interactions with other characters like Metatron’s multiple scenes with Cas.

With hindsight I feel like Chuck is a character exposition of Cas’s feelings for Dean and Amara a character exposition of Dean’s feelings for Cas. 

Below the cut : How I believe Chuck & Amara reveal Destiel exists in S11.
