An Analysis of Bakugou’s Superiority Complex

I think you’re at least kind of right. Bakugou knows Midoriya has something that he lacks, and that causes him to feel bitterness towards Midoriya. It’s also hard for Bakugou to deal with the idea that Midoriya is more like All Might than he is. Although, I don’t Bakugou ever admired Midoriya back when Midoriya was Quirkless. I think he hated Midoriya because Midoriya makes him feel weak.

I think Bakugou’s hatred of Midoriya comes from him having a textbook case of superiority complex.

A superiority complex is “a psychological defense mechanism in which feelings of superiority counter or conceal feelings of inferiority.” In other words, Bakugou’s narcissism and feelings of superiority are due to him trying to cover for his inferior feelings. When Bakugou is feeling weaker than Midoriya in some cases, he’ll lash out against Midoriya and treat him as inferior in order to protect his feelings of weakness. Whether Midoriya realizes it or not, he picks on Bakugou’s insecurities, and, in order to protect his ego, Bakugou bullies Midoriya and tries to make himself feel superior.

I don’t think Bakugou’s superiority complex has always existed. I think Midoriya simply triggered it.

From when he was a young child, Bakugou has always been praised.

As his mom points out, all that praise for his talents has made him narcissistic.

Bakugou’s feelings of superiority come from all the praises during his childhood. That much is self-explanatory. Because of those praises, he has high expectations for himself.

Because Bakugou was praised for his Quirk and Midoriya had no Quirk, it was easy for Bakugou to come to the conclusion that Midoriya is inferior.

As a result, when Midoriya, someone who’s supposed to be beneath him, tries to help him, it’s a huge blow to Bakugou’s ego. Midoriya is supposed to be a Quirkless loser. Bakugou isn’t supposed to need his help.

Any time Midoriya tries to help Bakugou, it makes Bakugou feel weak. In order to feel less weak and to prove his superiority, he bullies Midoriya and brings him down. A superiority complex exists to cover for an inferiority complex. In Bakugou’s case, his inferiority complex comes from Midoriya making him feel weak and like he has lower self-worth. His superiority complex kicks in when he bullies and brings Midoriya down in order to feel stronger. If Bakugou can keep convincing himself that Midoriya is weak and that he’s superior, then Bakugou can feel strong. The weaker Midoriya is, the stronger Bakugou feels. It’s a vicious mindset that Bakugou develops over the years, and he can’t get over this mindset and acknowledge Midoriya’s strength easily.

Bakugou’s superiority complex is so bad that he even considers losing if it means not having to work with Midoriya. Working with Midoriya is just that big of a bruise to his ego, and it makes him feel stronger thinking Midoriya is not good enough to work with him.

He still has to mentally think Midoriya is a piece of shit even while working with him.

Bakugou has gotten into this mindset where he has to prove he’s better than Midoriya in order to make himself stronger. Midoriya makes him feel weak. In order to combat those feelings, Bakugou has to put Midoriya down.

Midoriya getting a Quirk from All Might and catching up to Bakugou in terms of ability makes Bakugou feel weak. That’s why he can’t accept Midoriya’s strength so easily. Midoriya is supposed to always be beneath Bakugou. When he catches up to Bakugou, that only pisses Bakugou off because that’s not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s a failure on Bakugou’s part to allow Midoriya to catch up to him.

Once Bakugou realizes Midoriya received All Might’s power, he thinks that means there must be something Midoriya has that Bakugou doesn’t. Midoriya did something right while Bakugou did something wrong. Since All Might chose Midoriya, a kid who was always weaker than Bakugou, it makes Bakugou feel weak. This aggravates his inferiority complex. Bakugou feels so weak that he blames himself for getting captured by the villains and leading to All Might’s downfall.

It doesn’t help Bakugou’s inferiority complex when he feels like Midoriya is always looking down on him. He hates it when people do that.

Just a reminder, if people feel weak or incompetent and they let that consume themselves, then they have an inferior complex.

An inferior complex isn’t always conscious. In Bakugou’s case, it was initially subconscious and then became more conscious after All Might lost his powers. His inferiority complex is aggravated by anyone who makes him feel weak. Midoriya especially makes it worse. However, other people have aggravated Bakugou’s inferiority complex as well.  

If someone stands against Bakugou, Bakugou wants that person to give it his or her all. If that person doesn’t, to Bakugou, that person is looking down on him and making him feel weak.

Todoroki does just that during the Sport’s Festival.

Bakugou’s superiority complex isn’t the only defense mechanism for his inferiority complex. Often he just gets REALLY PISSED OFF against the people who make him feel weak. For instance, this is what he’s like after his fight with Todoroki.

Bakugou also shuns anyone who makes him feel weak, like Todoroki for example.

There are other smaller examples of other students picking on Bakugou’s inferiority complex. Midoriya and Todoroki are just the big examples.

Not everyone with a superiority complex is as destructive as Bakugou. In fact, out of all the students with an inferiority complex, Bakugou seems to cope with it the worst since he hurts others in the process.

Aoyama is a milder example someone with of a superiority complex. Remember, a superiority complex is simply a defense mechanism for an inferiority complex.

People, like Aoyama, who feel insecure about themselves and let that insecurity consume them have an inferiority complex.

To cope with the inferiority complex, they act more superior. Although, in Aoyama’s case, instead of tearing people down like Bakugou, he simply boasts himself, tries to get attention, and acts like he’s amazing.

Aoyama acts like he loves himself, and he loves the attention. There could be an argument to be made that Aoyama doesn’t have a superiority complex since he doesn’t bring others down in order to make himself feel superior. However, he boasts how amazing he is, gets dramatic, and seeks attention as a way to cope with his feelings of inferiority.

Right now, Bakugou and Aoyama are the only students I can think of who have developed a superiority complex from their inferiority complex.

There are certainly other students who have an inferiority complex. It’s inevitable given the nature of being a hero. Being a hero is very competitive. In order to be successful, students need to stand out from their peers, and their peers in turn will will use their weaknesses against them. Villains also take advantage of any weakness students may have. It makes sense for students to feel like they’re inadequate compared to the amazing talent of their peers or to feel like they’re not as strong as they should be.

Interestingly enough, it doesn’t really look like Midoriya has an inferiority complex. An inferiority complex occurs when people become too focused on their deficiencies and start to feel intense lower self-worth. Midoriya doesn’t have that. Midoriya has usually been pretty pragmatic about his weaknesses and doesn’t let them make him think he’s inadequate or worth less.

Bakugou’s bullying never caused Midoriya to give up or feel worth less. Midoriya has always thought Bakugou is amazing. As a result, Bakugou became a role model for Midoriya instead of someone who pushes him down.

Hearing that Togata could have been the successor for One for All and that Nighteye thinks Togata would make a better successor doesn’t make Midoriya think he is unworthy of One for All. Midoriya still thinks he’s worthy of One for All and will push himself to prove it.

Keep in mind, Midoriya not having an inferiority complex does not mean he isn’t sometimes humble or hard on himself. He’s not cocky. He will have moments where he doesn’t take credit for his achievements or is disappointed in himself. That’s part of human nature. 

Here, Midoriya is giving others credit for his achievements. 

When he says this, he’s not saying he doesn’t deserve to be where he is or that he’s not deserving of his Quirk. He’s simply giving people who have helped him throughout is life credit. He wants to be the number one hero for their sake as well as his own. That’s not an inferiority complex. 

During the moments Midoriya is hard on himself, it’s usually because it’s the rational conclusion, such as in the example shown below. 

All Might tells Midoriya that he can only use to five percent of his power. Midoriya reasonably thinks that doesn’t sound like a lot. Midoriya isn’t being unreasonably hard on himself or thinks he’s weak. He’s just coming to the rational conclusion based on what he knows. Midoriya knows he needs to work on controlling his Quirk without breaking his bones. Midoriya feeling like he has a lot to work on doesn’t mean he thinks he’s a lesser being or has low self-esteem. 

People having moments where they’re hard on themselves or think they can do better is normal. An inferiority complex is when those inferior feelings happen all the time whether subconsciously or not. Bakugou often feels weak, and this manifests into the angry and mean-spirited behavior we know. Bakugou always subconsciously or consciously thinks he’s weak. It’s a more general feeling rather than one that happens occasionally. Midoriya doesn’t always think he’s not good enough or not deserving. If he’s not good enough in a certain area, then he’ll come to the rational conclusion for that particular area. An inferiority complex is a general feeling of inferiority rather than the occasional moments of feeling inferior. It makes people feel like they’re worth less overall. It’s a neurotic condition, meaning people with an inferiority complex worry frequently about their inferiority, even when it’s irrational or not important. The negative attitudes at times are irrational. 

Take Momo’s inferiority complex for example. She is very sensitive to her shortcomings from the Sports Festival. She is very hard on herself for not living up to her high expectations. She even goes as far as saying she “hasn’t left behind any noteworthy results.” Even though Momo is a very rational thinker, this is a VERY harsh criticism on her part and has affected her attitude since then. 

Momo’s negative feelings about herself occur when she compares herself to Todoroki. She starts feeling not good enough and loses confidence in herself. An inferiority complex affects the general perception and behavior one has towards himself or herself. 

Her inferiority complex prevents her from speaking up about a plan because she thinks she’s not good enough to share her idea. 

She thinks so little of herself that she comes to the conclusion that if Todoroki’s plan didn’t work, then hers can’t work either. 

An inferiority complex affects the behavior of individuals. In Momo’s case, hers makes her more passive because she feels like she’s not good enough to voice her opinion. In Aoyama’s case, it makes him more self-centered in order to compensate for his inferior feelings. In Bakugou’s case, it makes him become a bully because bringing people down makes him feel more superior. 

Midoriya not having an inferior complex makes sense. Midoriya is supposed to be Bakugou’s foil. Bakugou’s weaknesses are supposed to be Midoriya’s strengths.

If both boys have an inferiority complex, then they don’t make that good of foils. While Bakugou has feelings of weakness that he lets consume him. Midoriya doesn’t let his flaws make him feel weak or insecure and tries to push himself to be number one anyway because he believes he’s worthy of being number one.

Keep in mind, not everyone with an inferiority complex lets it hold them back or has harmful ways to cope with the inferiority complex like Bakugou does. An inferiority complex is simply a constant feeling of being inadequate and not measuring up. Some people with an inferiority complex use it to improve the skills they think they lack. It can be a driving force to improve. Bakugou, in a way, has also used his inferiority complex to improve himself. Unfortunately, he also tries to handle his feelings of weakness by lashing out and bringing others down.

The worst way to cope with an inferiority complex is to develop a superiority complex from it. People with a superiority complex still have low self-esteem like others with an inferiority complex. However, they also bring down others in order to cope with their low self-esteem and end up being isolated from people as a result.

How to Write a Novel:  Tips For Visual Thinkers.

1.  Plotting is your friend.

This is basically a must for all writers (or at least, it makes our job significantly easier/less time consuming/less likely to make us want to rip our hair out by the roots), but visual thinkers tend to be great at plotting.  There’s something about a visible outline that can be inexplicably pleasing to us, and there are so many great ways to go about it.   Here are a few examples: 

  • The Three-Act Structure
    • This one is one of the simplest:  it’s divided into the tried-and-true three acts, or parts, a la William Shakespeare, and includes a basic synopsis of what happens in each.  It’s simple, it’s familiar, it’s easy to add to, and it get’s the job done. 
    • It starts with Act I – i.e. the set-up, or establishing the status quo – which is usually best if it’s the shortest act, as it tends to bore audiences quickly.  This leads to Act II, typically the longest, which   introduces the disruptor and shows how characters deal with it, and is sandwiched by Act III (the resolution.)  
  • The Chapter-by-Chapter
    • This is the one I use the most.  It allows you to elucidate on the goings on of your novel in greater detail than the quintessential three act synopsis generally could, fully mapping out your manuscript one chapter at a time.  The descriptions can be as simple or as elaborate as you need them to be, and can be added to or edited throughout the progression of your novel.
    • Can easily be added to/combined with the three-act structure.
  • The Character Arc(s)
    • This isn’t one that I’ve used a lot, but it can be a lot of fun, particularly for voice-driven/literary works:  instead on focusing on the events of the plot, this one centralizes predominantly around the arc of your main character/characters.  As with its plot-driven predecessors, it can be in point-by-point/chapter-by-chapter format, and is a great way to map out character development.  
  • The Tent Moments
    • By “tent moments,” I mean the moments that hold up the foundation (i.e. the plot) of the novel, in the way that poles and wires hold up a tent.  This one builds off of the most prevalent moments of the novel – the one’s you’re righting the story around – and is great for writers that want to cut straight to the action.  Write them out in bullet points, and plan the rest of the novel around them.
  • The Mind Map
    • This one’s a lot of fun, and as an artist, I should probably start to use it more.  It allows you to plot out your novel the way you would a family tree, using doodles, illustrations, and symbols to your heart’s content.  Here’s a link to how to create basic mind maps on YouTube.

2.  “Show don’t tell” is probably your strong suit.

If you’re a visual thinker, your scenes are probably at least partially originally construed as movie scenes in your head.  This can be a good thing, so long as you can harness a little of that mental cinematography and make your readers visualize the scenes the way you do.

A lot of published authors have a real big problem with giving laundry lists of character traits rather than allowing me to just see for myself.  Maybe I’m spoiled by the admittedly copious amounts of fanfiction I indulge in, where the writer blissfully assumes that I know the characters already and let’s the personalities and visuals do the talking.  Either way, the pervasive “telling” approach does get tedious.

Here’s a hypothetical example.  Let’s say you wanted to describe a big, tough, scary guy, who your main character is afraid of.  The “tell” approach might go something like this:

Tommy was walking along when he was approached by a big, tough, scary guy who looked sort of angry.

“Hey, kid,” said the guy.  “Where are you going?”

“I’m going to a friend’s house,” Tommy replied.  

I know, right?  This is Boring with a capital ‘B.’  

On the other hand, let’s check out the “show” approach:

The man lumbered towards Tommy, shaved head pink and glistening in the late afternoon sun.  His beady eyes glinted predatorily beneath the thick, angry bushes of his brows.

“Hey, kid,” the man grunted, beefy arms folded over his pot belly.  “Where are you going?” 

“I’m going to a friend’s house,” Tommy replied, hoping the man didn’t know that he was ditching school.

See how much better that is?  We don’t need to be told the man is big, tough, and scary looking because the narrative shows us, and draws the reader a lot more in the process.  

This goes for scene building, too.  For example: 

Exhibit A:

Tyrone stepped out onto his balcony.  It was a beautiful night.


Exhibit B: 

Tyrone stepped out onto his balcony, looking up at the inky abyss of the night sky, dotted with countless stars and illuminated by the buttery white glow of the full moon.

Much better.

3.  But conversely, know when to tell.

A book without any atmosphere or vivid, transformative descriptors tends to be, by and large, a dry and boring hunk of paper.  That said, know when you’re showing the reader a little too much.

Too many descriptors will make your book overflow with purple prose, and likely become a pretentious read that no one wants to bother with.

So when do you “tell” instead of “show?”  Well, for starters, when you’re transitioning from one scene to the next.

For example:

As the second hand of the clock sluggishly ticked along, the sky ever-so-slowly transitioning from cerulean, to lilac, to peachy sunset.  Finally, it became inky black, the moon rising above the horizon and stars appearing by the time Lakisha got home.

These kind of transitions should be generally pretty immemorable, so if yours look like this you may want to revise.

Day turned into evening by the time Lakisha got home. 

See?  It’s that simple.

Another example is redundant descriptions:  if you show the fudge out of a character when he/she/they are first introduced and create an impression that sticks with the reader, you probably don’t have to do it again.  

You can emphasize features that stand out about the character (i.e. Milo’s huge, owline eyes illuminated eerily in the dark) but the reader probably doesn’t need a laundry list of the character’s physical attributes every other sentence.  Just call the character by name, and for God’s sake, stay away from epithets:  the blond man.  The taller woman.  The angel.  Just, no.  If the reader is aware of the character’s name, just say it, or rework the sentence. 

All that said, it is important to instill a good mental image of your characters right off the bat.

Which brings us to my next point…

4.  Master the art of character descriptions.

Visual thinkers tend to have a difficult time with character descriptions, because most of the time, they tend to envision their characters as played their favorite actors, or as looking like characters from their favorite movies or TV shows.

That’s why you’ll occasionally see characters popping up who are described as looking like, say, Chris Evans.  

It’s a personal pet peeve of mine, because A) what if the reader has never seen Chris Evans?  Granted, they’d probably have to be living on Mars, but you get the picture:  you don’t want your readers to have to Google the celebrity you’re thirsting after in order for them to envision your character.  B) It’s just plain lazy, and C) virtually everyone will know that the reason you made this character look like Chris Evans is because you want to bang Chris Evans.  

Not that that’s bad or anything, but is that really what you want to be remembered for?

Now, I’m not saying don’t envision your characters as famous attractive people – hell, that’s one of the paramount joys of being a writer.  But so’s describing people!  Describing characters is a lot of fun, draws in the reader, and really brings your character to life.

So what’s the solution?  If you want your character to look like Chris Evans, describe Chris Evans.

Here’s an example of what I’m talking about:

Exhibit A:

The guy got out of the car to make sure Carlos was alright, and holy cow, he looked just like Dean Winchester!

No bueno.  Besides the fact that I’m channeling the writing style of 50 Shades of Grey a little here, everyone who reads this is going to process that you’re basically writing Supernatural fanfiction.  That, or they’ll have to Google who Dean Winchester is, which, again, is no good.

Exhibit B:  

The guy got out of the car to make sure Carlos was alright, his short, caramel blond hair stirring in the chilly wind and a smattering of freckles across the bridge of his nose.  His eyes were wide with concern, and as he approached, Carlos could see that they were gold-tinged, peridot green in the late afternoon sun.

Also note that I’m keeping the description a little vague here;  I’m doing this for two reasons, the first of which being that, in general, you’re not going to want to describe your characters down to the last detail.  Trust me.  It’s boring, and your readers are much more likely to become enamored with a well-written personality than they are a vacant sex doll.  Next, by keeping the description a little vague, I effectively manage to channel a Dean Winchester-esque character without literally writing about Dean Winchester.

Let’s try another example: 

Exhibit A:

Charlotte’s boyfriend looked just like Idris Elba. 

Exhibit B:  

Charlotte’s boyfriend was a stunning man, eyes pensive pools of dark brown amber and a smile so perfect that it could make you think he was deliciously prejudiced in your favor.  His skin was dark copper, textured black hair gray at the temples, and he filled out a suit like no other.

Okay, that one may have been because I just really wanted to describe Idris Elba, but you get the point:  it’s more engaging for the reader to be able to imagine your character instead of mentally inserting some sexy fictional character or actor, however beloved they may be.

So don’t skimp on the descriptions!

5.  Don’t be afraid to find inspiration in other media!

A lot of older people recommend ditching TV completely in order to improve creativity and become a better writer.  Personally, if you’ll pardon my French, I think this is bombastic horseshit.  

TV and cinema are artistic mediums the same way anything else is.  Moreover, the sheer amount of fanart and fanfiction – some of which is legitimately better than most published content – is proof to me that you can derive inspiration from these mediums as much as anything else.

The trick is to watch media that inspires you.  I’m not going to say “good media” because that, in and of itself, is subjective.  I, for example, think Supernatural is a fucking masterpiece of intertextual postmodernism and amazing characterization, whereas someone else might think it’s a hot mess of campy special effects and rambling plotlines.  Conversely, one of my best friends loves Twilight, both the movies and the books, which, I’m going to confess, I don’t get at all.  But it doesn’t matter that it isn’t good to me so long as it’s good to her.   

So watch what inspires you.  Consume any whatever movies, books, and shows you’re enthusiastic about, figure out what you love most about them, and apply that to your writing.  Chances are, readers will find your enthusiasm infectious.

As a disclaimer, this is not to say you get a free pass from reading:  I’ve never met a good writer who didn’t read voraciously.  If you’re concerned that you can’t fall in love with books the way you used to (which, sadly, is a common phenomenon) fear not:  I grappled with that problem after I started college, and I’ll be posting an article shortly on how to fall back in love reading.

So in the meanwhile, be sure to follow my blog, and stay tuned for future content!

(This one goes out to my friend, beta reader, and fellow writer @megpieeee, who is a tremendous visual thinker and whose books will make amazing movies someday.)

The Stevenbomb - what happens next...

Warning: Spoilers!

So, now that we’ve experienced the thoroughly explosive new Stevenbomb, there’s a burning question that we all want the answer to:

What happens next?!

Steven’s now willing en-route to Homeworld in order to keep his friends safe from harm, the Crystal Gems powerless to stop this heartbreaking scenario from playing out right in front of their eyes.

They’ll need a plan, and fast.  But the glaring issue here is that their only space craft has been stolen reunited with its rightful owner again.  The upshot of this, of course, is that the Crystal Gems now have no way of reaching space.

Or, do they…?

Upon being freed from the mirror – and subsequently healed – by Steven, Lapis couldn’t get off the Earth fast enough.  In a relatively short amount of time, she was able to fly herself all the way back to Homeworld without the aid of a vehicle.

We know that, Peridot aside, Steven is the one person who Lapis cares for the most.  She’s already effectively sacrificed herself to save him in the past (this being her logic, no matter how questionable it might have been, when forming Malachite in order to stop Jasper from hurting Steven) – so she’s going to jump at the chance to save him again.

I daresay that the Crystal Gems will be well aware of this and will want/need to enlist her help, along with Peridot’s.  Peridot is, of course, the most “modern” Gem of the group and is the only one with prior experience of the current-day Homeworld.

Originally posted by inqnell

However, another issue could arise here because (in a manner of speaking) Aquamarine and Topaz were sent to Earth because of Peridot.  If she hadn’t filed that report all the way back in Marble Madness, things might have played out very differently indeed.

I’ve theorised in the past that Peridot is internalising a lot of the guilt that she undoubtedly feels for her past actions (trying to kill Steven, the fusion experiments, almost leaving the Earth to be torn apart by the Cluster, etc) and that, eventually, something would cause all of this guilt to come spilling out.  I have to wonder if she’s going to blame herself for Steven’s capture and that, ultimately, this is going to be the thing that tips her guilt over the edge.

Peridot has recently been showing an awful lot of compassion to one individual in particular, continually putting this individual’s happiness and comfort first…

Lapis Lazuli.

Could it now be Lapis’ turn to be there for Peridot, just as Peridot has been for her?

When Lapis and Peridot find out what happened to Steven, there’s going to be a lot of upset from everyone.  Sometimes upset can turn to anger, and blame might start being attributed all around.  Perhaps the Crystal Gems themselves will begin blaming Peridot for what happened.

I can’t stop thinking about Peridot feeling guilty and getting very upset about the whole thing, prompting Lapis to say “It’s not your fault, Peridot…” before glaring at the Crystal Gems and adding something like “You’re not the one who let them take him!”

I feel like Lapis might be harbouring some resentment for the Crystal Gems and that she’s going to see Steven’s capture as being another reason not to trust them.  As I mentioned earlier, Lapis considers that she actually sacrificed herself to save Steven – so this line of logic could lead her to thinking that the Crystal Gems could have done more to prevent him from being taken.

Is it fair to apportion blame like this?  No – but that’s what can happen when something this distressing and heartbreaking happens.

Regardless of whether or not the “blame game” comes to fruition, everyone will have to calm down from their upset eventually and figure out what to do.  They’ll have to set aside any differences/disagreements that they may have and come together in order to rescue the one person who ultimately binds them all together – Steven.

And this is where things could get very interesting indeed.

Lapis can travel through space, but it’s unlikely that she would have the physical strength to carry multiple Gems with her. However…what if she’s not just Lapis at this point?

I think a fusion between Lapis, Peridot and the Crystal Gems (effectively creating another Alexandrite-esque Gem) is highly unlikely, for a number of reasons.

Alexandrite is an incredibly powerful Gem – and so was Malachite, Lapis’ only other fusion to date.  If one were to combine these forces, the resulting Gem would be unstoppable.  This would be ideal, of course; but, from a storytelling point of view, it offers a solution that’s too simple.  A “get out of jail free” card, if you like.

There’s also the aforementioned issue of Lapis perhaps not fully trusting the other Crystal Gems yet, as well as a huge question mark hanging over the stability of a fusion involving six Gems.  Lapis has also been left traumatised by her experience as Malachite, so I feel like she’d only fuse again with someone who she was very close to – with a dire emergency like this one being the catalyst to get her to try fusing with someone again out of pure necessity.

Luckily, there is someone who Lapis fully trusts, who she spends almost all her time alongside, and who she’s living a very harmonious relationship with…

Originally posted by barzeronipizza

…and so this might be where we finally see our Lapidot fusion!

To me, it makes absolute perfect sense.  Lapis can fly through space at an alarming rate, Peridot knows all about modern Homeworld – and, if necessary, their fusion might actually be able to carry the other Crystal Gems along with them!

Imagine a scene where Steven is in a room on Homeworld (or, alternatively, still on-board Aquamarine and Topaz’s ship).  Suddenly, a new Gem – the Lapidot fusion – comes bursting through the door, the Crystal Gems in her arms/clinging onto her back.  That would be an amazing scenario.

Of course, the nature of the show is such that we see everything from Steven’s perspective.  I wonder if the show will break this convention soon in order to show what’s happening on Earth ahead of Steven’s inevitable rescue.  We obviously know he’s going to get rescued somehow, but the tension and build-up would be somewhat watered-down if we see the Crystal Gems’ plan play out in the form of a The New Crystal Gems style flashback episode.  That’s still a distinct possibility, of course, but I must admit that it’d be nice to see the show’s formula get slightly shaken up in the next episodes.


It is bittersweet that I present to you my last ever theory for Pretty Little Liars. I apologise in advance for the insane length, but this is covering all those frustrating loose ends across the entire series. I hope you can make it to the end so we can discuss. My only fear for this theory is that it is too daring and gutsy; it would re-define the show we thought we knew. Are the writers willing to ‘go there’ in just 10 episodes? I don’t know! Regardless if this is all right, partially right, or so damn wrong, I hope you have as much fun reading this as I did putting this together the past two months! For the last time before the show ends… I hope you enjoy!

His Mind Created the Perfect Metaphor

Dear BBC Sherlock community,

Ever since Sherlock series 4 came out, collectively we were like “what the HELL is this?!?! This doesn’t make any sense!” BUT after many months of tossing ideas around the fandom, we have made theories that could explain the weirdness, but nothing we can all agree on. Now, this meta here may be absolute garbage to you, but I believe, in my heart of hearts, I’ve solved it. Please read it in its entirety with an open mind before you reblog it just to tell me I suck.

Thanks in advance, you da best


Here’s the short version: Sherlock actually jumped at the end of The Reichenbach Fall, just as Doyle intended him to die. Gatiss and Moffat said they are correcting something in this adaptation that no one else has gotten right before. Many of us assumed the homosexual romance was the one thing they were changing, but we were punched in the face right after The Final Problem came out.  Gatiss and Moffat are changing the sacrifice. Holmes was intended to die for his friends but Doyle needed more money and rewrote the series after “The Final Problem”. That turned Holmes’ sacrifice into a cruel joke against Watson. This is what BBC Sherlock is fixing, and we’re about to see it come to fruition.

I know many theorists despise the homosexual reading of Holmes and Watson, while many people in general despise theorists on this site. That’s fine, I don’t care how people feel about gay theories and/or TJLC and its followers.  But I’m here to tell you TJLC, at its core as a concept, was right. You may hate Moffat and Gatiss, you may think Sherlock is a piece of shit show, and that’s fine, you do you. But hear this one meta out, please. I think even the hardest skeptic can at least apprectiate the thought and logic behind this.

Can you recommend BL Manwha? Your BL anime list was epic btw

Thank you so much! I love Manhwas myself. For anyone who doesn’t know they are Korean Comics. Here is a recommendation list for some of the ones that I’ve read. I’ve marked the Mature ones with (***)

19 Days (7/10): This one tells the story of high schoolers going about their daily life and the silly situations they get themselves into as they try and work on their relationships, friendships, and social lives. If you’re looking for a good laugh this is the one for you. The thing I didn’t like is that the releases of the chapters are only a few pages long and the story feels a little disjointed. Of course the main couple swears that they are “just friends” but it’s very obvious where the doubt comes from. This is currently still on-going with over 200 chapters. Comedy, School Life, Slice of Life

A Guy Like You (10/10): Go Siwon suddenly wakes up in a dream with a classmate that he rarely talks to and is asked if he remembers what they did during the freshmen retreat when they all got drunk. The supernatural element is heavy in this one where two boys share the same dreams and slowly grow together in their waking hours. I cannot rave about this manhaw enough: the art is beautiful, the story is captivating, and the characters are so lovable. This is currently on-going with a little over 30 chapters. Drama, Slice of Life, Supernatural, Romance

All About Lust (7/10): After seeing his upperclassmen’s artwork Wooseung decides that he will confess, and his confession is easily accepted. Only problem is that his upperclassmen’s idea of love and lust are a little muddled. In order to mend their twisted relationship Wooseung must find the middle between love and lust. This one started off really strong, but I’m not a super fan of the new couple or the most recent chapters. However, I still think that it’s worth the read. It’s still on-going with a little over 30 chapters. Drama, Slice of Life, Mature, Romance

At the End of the Road (9/10): Taemin suddenly has a dream about a man he has never meet before and watches him try to commit suicide.  The next day Taemin is hit by a truck and when he wake up he finds that he’s no longer in his own body, but the body of the man that he watched last night in his dream. He later learns that his body didn’t survive the accident. He believes that he has switched bodies with the man from his dreams, and now he must live the other man’s life. However, a handsome man from his childhood identifies Taemin and swears to protect him. I feel like I used up my lifetime of “oh shit’s” reading this. There are so many twists and turns with this story. It’s currently on-going with over 35 chapters. Supernatural, School life, Romance

***Blood Bank (10/10): This is my favorite one on the list hands down. Shell Overlord is a powerful vampire who suddenly becomes very interested in a human named One who works as a banker. In this world humans are treated like livestock and their blood is collected every month to feed the vampires that rule all. However, one day One finds himself standing over Shell as the vampire asks, “Please, step on me.” Shell is an abnormal that must hide the fact that he loves to be dominated by humans, but can he really get One’s love when One has already promised to harden his heart against this cruel world? This has currently finished publishing and has 61 chapters. Mature, Drama, Comedy, Romance, Supernatural, Vampires

H&H Roman Company (8/10): God has decided that since humans have become so self-reliant and aren’t asking for any help that he will put all of his angels and demons into a company and make them work along side the humans. Ginger is born of both an angel and demon parent. He declares that his angel side is stronger so that he can join his childhood best friend Rum as a pair (pairs are made of one angel and one demon) together they struggle to come to terms with their feelings for each other. This is currently completed with 33 chapters. Comedy, Drama, Supernatural, Slice of Life, Romance, Childhood Friends

Heart Silent (8/10): Hyeon-Jin’s heart has never beat a day in his life, and then one day he stumbles across Chan. Since then his heart will randomly start beating whenever they’re together. Hyeon-Jin is terrified of his heartbeat, but he doesn’t want to stop meeting Chan. This one is on-going and currently has over 30 chapters. Unlike the others this one is slow-paced and everything is just starting to get rolling, but it’s still very cute. Slice of Life, Drama, Comedy, Romance

***Killing Stalking (8/10): This one is not for someone who’s weak of heart. The story tells of a stalker, Yoon Bum, who falls in love with a man that happens to be a serial killer. The serial killer, Sangwoo, keeps Yoon Bum prisoner in his house as they do dreadful things together from torture to killing people. At first I think I was so shocked that everything was happening and that’s why I kept reading, but now I can tell you that I think the creepiness has ebbed. I don’t really like this manhwa, but I think I keep reading because I’m curious on how it will end. This is still on-going with currently about 30 chapters.  Psychological, Thriller, Horror, Mature

***Lover Boy (8/10): Eunho once asked Jaeha to be his, but it was too late he was already getting married. However, now they meet again after Jaeha’s divorce and now the time for new love has arrived. Sadly Jaeha is going out with another man in order to try and help himself forget his feelings for Eunho, but Eunho refuses to give up on their love. This is currently on-going with almost 30 chapters. Romance, Slice of Life, Drama

Meeting Him (10/10): This is one of the fluffiest things on this list. One day Shiwoo finds an unconscious man wearing traditional clothing outside of his apartment. Shiwoo brings the man into his house only to find that the man is an ancient prince, Jun, that time traveled to find his lover. In Jun’s time his lover is dying of a unknown disease, but in this time Shiwoo is fine but he doesn’t know Jun. Shiwoo and Jun’s lover have the same three moles on their shoulder making Jun think Shiwoo is his lover. I read everything that was translated in one sitting and I’m dying inside. It’s so cute and I need more. This is currently on-going with just over 15 chapters. Romance, Slice of Life, Drama, Comedy 

Raising a Bat (10/10): The cover makes this look like it’s going to be a naughty kind of manhwa, but that couldn’t be more of a lie. Park Min Gyeom has a problem: his body produces too much blood. In order to rid himself of all of the blood he usually donates it, but one day he’s attacked by a vampire. Said Vampire actually is the socially awkward Kim Chun Sam. Together they form a strange relationship as blood provider and vampire. Slowly their feelings for each other start to grow. This is currently complete with 58 chapters, but extras for the story are currently still coming out. Romance, Comedy, Supernatural, Vampire, School Life

***Royal Servant (10/10): I know that when I started this I was like “Interesting, but not my favorite.” Now I’m super invested in their happiness. This tells the story of Kyon who works for Lucaon who is a Royal Blood/Master with supernatural powers. Lucaon’s parents were poisoned causing him not to trust any of the servants or get close to any of them. However, this all starts to change when he notices Kyon and learns that Kyon has a crush on him. Thus starts their Master/Servant relationship and the thawing of Lucaon’s heart. This is currently on-going with over 30 chapters. Drama, Romance, Slice of Life, Supernatural

***Window Beyond Window (9/10): They’ve been childhood friends for as long as they could remember.  Yubin has been in love with Shin-Ginu for the past six years and now they are living next door to each other. One night Shin-Ginu sees Yubin playing with his ass and now their strange relationship is about to take off. They both love each other, but neither will admit it. They’re super adorable and funny. I read everything that was translated in one sitting. This is currently on-going with over 20 chapters. Romance, Slice of life, School Life, Childhood friends

***You JIn (9/10): You Jin is a terrible drunk and did something that he shouldn’t have (give a blow job to a stranger) now said stranger has returned to his room and wants to start a serious relationship with him. Slowly their relationship starts to grow closer after they start being honest with each other. When I started this one I was a little confused because of the lie, but then it made sense. This is currently complete with 16 chapters and a few extras. Romance, Comedy, Slice of Life 

Ashido and Kirishima’s Relationship As of Chapter 144

I’ve been going through Tumblr posts and comments to chapter 144, and people keep saying that Ashido inspired Kirishima to get into U.A. or that she has a positive influence on him. 

Were we reading the same chapter? Because if anything, I think Ashido Mina brought out a lot of negative emotions in Kirishima, and people are misinterpreting the scenes in chapter 144.

First of all, let me clarify something, I’ve always been curious about the relationship between Kirishima and Ashido ever since the databook revealed they went to the same middle school. Their high school relationship seems so casual that I would have never guessed they had gone to the same middle school. They barely talk to each other in the manga, and when they do, it’s usually casual exchanges like these. 

They were on the same team for the cavalry battle, so I guess there’s that. 

However, even throughout the cavalry battle, there’s no hint of Kirishima and Ashido having a special friendship or relationship. She’s added to the team so that her Quirk can melt Todoroki’s ice. 

Their casual friendship has always made me curious about what their relationship was like in middle school. They seem to tolerate and respect each other, but there’s nothing that stands out besides this funny little moment in the Omake. 

As a result, I was really curious about what Ashido’s role would be in Kirishima’s backstory. I wouldn’t have been surprised if they barely knew each other in middle school considering how there aren’t any hints in the manga of them knowing each other from middle school. They act like two people who met each other in high school rather than middle school. There’s no close companionship or tension, mostly very casual comments occasionally. 

Sure enough, according to chapter 144, it doesn’t appear like they knew each other that much. Kirishima’s friends had to explain to Kirishima who Ashido was, implying Kirishima didn’t know her that well. Keep in mind, Kirishima and Ashido were both middle school seniors at this point and were about to graduate middle school, yet Kirishima and likely Ashido didn’t know each other. 

Since Ashido didn’t interact with Kirishima at all or seem to notice him in chapter 144, it’s likely their middle school relationship was almost non-existent at this point, which would explain the casual friendship they have in high school. 

When Kirishima learned about Ashido, he didn’t display positive emotions. Ashido didn’t motivate or encourage him. Kirishima looked overwhelmed and jealous and felt inferior when he compared his less flashy Quirk to hers. 

After hearing about Ashido’s amazing Quirk, Kirishima specifically thought “I’m honestly just kinda dull, and boring.” Those thoughts lowered his self-esteem and held Kirishima back. Ashido was a negative influence on Kirishima at this point.

To put it in simple terms, this was Kirishima before meeting Ashido.

This was Kirishima after meeting Ashido.

Furthermore, when Kirishima failed to jump in to help a couple of schoolmates, he saw Ashido jump in to help them instead. 

After seeing her act like the hero and jumping in to save her friends when Kirishima was too scared to do so, Kirishima continued to compare himself to Ashido and felt more inferior. He started thinking that he can’t be a hero like Ashido can. He’s too normal compared to Ashido. He doesn’t have the great Quirk or abilities like Ashido has to be a hero.

Kirishima had so many negative feelings because of his perceived inferiority to Ashido that it was the last straw, and he temporarily decided to not try to get into U.A.

Keep in mind, Ashido didn’t do anything wrong. She didn’t mean to inflame Kirishima’s inferiority complex. In fact, Kirishima’s feelings of inferiority is towards people with flashier Quirks in general. Ashido just represented the people who Kirishima felt inferior to. If Ashido weren’t around, some other individual with a strong Quirk could have just as easily discouraged Kirishima from taking the U.A. entrance exam.

At no point in the chapter or manga does Ashido provide positive reinforcement for Kirishima. She hasn’t inspired Kirishima to be more like her and to be a hero. They didn’t even interact in chapter 144. Kirishima felt jealousy towards Ashido that discouraged him from becoming a hero. That’s nowhere close to Mirio motivating Tamaki to becoming a great hero or Bakugou inspiring Midoriya to become a great hero. It’s the reversal of those relationships. 

People may argue that Ashido later encouraged Kirishima to get stronger, to start jumping in to save people, and/or to dye his hair. However, we don’t know for sure if that was the case. It’s likely that wasn’t the case and that Ashido always kept Kirishima’s confidence down and brought up these negative feelings inside Kirishima. It would be opposite of the motivating relationship of Mirio and Tamaki have had.

First of all, Kirishima never needed Ashido to motivate himself to train. Before meeting Ashido and comparing himself to her, he was training hard so that could be more like Crimson Riot and other heroes. He would have kept training if he wasn’t suddenly unmotivated to becoming a hero. 

Before meeting Ashido, Kirishima also understood how important it is for heroes to rescue people. In fact, he specifically said a hero’s body moves before they can even think. He bases this off of what Crimson Riot would have said. It’s unlikely Ashido would have provided him with this same encouragement. If anything, she would discourage Kirishima because he’d compare himself to her and become afraid to save people because he’d think he’s not as strong as Ashido.

It’s possible Kirishima spiked his hair and dyed it red in order to stand out like Ashido. However, that’s not necessarily a good thing. Spiking his hair and dying it red isn’t necessary to becoming a great hero. Second of all, Kirishima most likely spiked it red to look more like Crimson Riot, so Crimson Riot would have inspired Kirishima to make the appearance change, not Ashido. 

I feel like people are acting like Ashido had a positive influence on Kirishima when it’s evidently the opposite at the moment, or people are acting like she and Kirishima have had such a great relationship when there’s no proof of that happening. 

I hope their relationship has a positive impact on Kirishima. I don’t want his thoughts of Ashido to always hurt him. I hope Kirishima and Ashido can talk to each other and Kirishima can stop feeling inferior to her. I hope they can become friends and have Ashido motivate Kirishima into becoming an amazing hero. As of now, she did nothing but lower Kirishima’s self-esteem and made him temporarily give up his dream of becoming a hero. Ashido hasn’t been a positive influence on Kirishima or inspired him into becoming a great hero as of yet, and they certainly haven’t had a great relationship when they lack meaningful interactions in the manga so far.  

Sorry, this is post probably going to be an unpopular post because I see a lot of people gushing over Kirishima and Ashido’s relationship. This is only my interpretation of the manga’s events. If you have a different take on their interactions, then good for you. Right now, I just see Kirishima and Ashido’s relationship as the opposite of Mirio and Tamaki’s relationship. 

FIC REC’S OF 2017 part 9 ( november)

We’re starting to get to the Christmas/Holiday season and I, for one, am sooo excited! I wanted to write “I loved this” at the end of each of these fics, so I’m just going to say it here now. I loved all of these. :D Happy reading!

You Love Me, If You Love Me Don’t Let Go by @shadowofyoursong / ao3 (98k) CHAPTERED 

His name is up there. He’s the only Harry in this group. His eyes land on Louis, who swallows thickly. He gives Harry a small smile, brows raised a little. Harry is not dancing a solo. He’s dancing with the boy, who he never remembers. How the hell can he ever get anyone’s attention, when he doesn’t have any connection with this guy.

Or the one where Harry and Louis are students at The Juilliard School of Performing Arts and are dancing in the same group. Harry never notices Louis, the boy who is a year younger than him, mostly sticks to himself and practices hard (or that’s what Harry thinks). Louis on the other hand always sees the confident and focused Harry. Now they’re paired for a duo performance and they have to make it work, even though Louis’ eyes are towards London and Harry’s are towards a career after graduation, which he thinks he can only get with a solo performance. DANCER AU, HATE TO LOVE

(Take Me Home) Country Roads by @a-writerwrites / ao3 (86k) CHAPTERED

“Sir, I can help you. Just let me — “ He tried moving closer but the eldest child blocked his way. He backed off, putting his hands out in a passive gesture. “I’m a physician. I can help,” he tried again.

The man shook his head vehemently, passing the cup back to his grandchild. “Tol’ ya. Don’t need ya.” All of the fire had gone out of his voice, leaving behind a frail, sick old man with barely any breath to talk.

“I have medicines…I could make you comfortable…” Louis’ voice was still small, but pleading.

“Mountain Mama cares for wha’s ailin’ me. Don’t need no fancy city doctors.”

Louis blinked at the man, still shaking from the coughing spell. Mountain — well, fuck. That backwoods, uneducated scam artist…

“Of course he is,” Louis said curtly.

OR a Northern Exposure AU featuring Louis as the big city doctor, Harry as a natural healer, Niall as a secretive barkeep, Liam and Zayn head over heels for each other but they don’t know it and a lot of hurt, comfort and moonshine in between. HATE TO LOVE

You Might Want To Marry My Husband by @all-these-larrythings / ao3 (25k) CHAPTERED

When Harry’s husband dies, he asks one thing of him; to find love and happiness again without him. It’s a request that Harry is happy to disregard, until he meets the one person who is impossible to ignore. MOVING ON

It’ll Be by @styleandsin / ao3 (13k) ONE SHOT

Louis has always wanted children and he decides he’s done waiting for love to come first. However, after adopting a baby girl just days after she’s born, he quickly realizes how hard parenting is. Louis hires Harry to be his Nanny, and it all works out great. Until Louis falls in love with him. KID FIC

Oops, Baby, I Love You ( In That Order) by @suddenclarityharry / ao3 (25k) ONE SHOT 

Later that night, when he’s lying in bed thinking of all the things he’s longed for in his life, he can’t stop hearing Fizzy’s words in his head.

Who says you have to get married?

It’s true, Louis wants to get married one day, to have a spouse to encourage his crazy promotional ideas for his book shop, to have someone to cuddle into at night, someone who will love him even on his moody days. But she’s absolutely right, isn’t she? Who says he has to have that before he can have a baby?

When he finally falls asleep, he sleeps restfully, having made a very important decision about his future.

Husband or no, Louis Tomlinson is going to have a baby.

OR The minute Louis Tomlinson decides he don’t need no man to start a family, Harry Styles literally falls into his arms. MPREG

Couldn’t See Past Me, Till I Saw Your Face by @lululawrence / ao3 (12k) ONE SHOT 

“Look at us, living the dream,” Louis said softly. “But Harry, I don’t know if I’m going to be able to finish my last semester with the baby. I don’t know how far along I am or anything. And what about my internship and all of that?”

Harry shook his head emphatically and pulled back once more from Louis, this time placing his large, strong hands on Louis’ shoulders and squeezing them tight.

“We’ll make this work, Louis. I’ll help take care of you and your little one and I know you’ll help me make it through whatever happens with this. We’re always there for each other, right? Just like we promised when we were in middle school.”

Louis laughed a bit and smiled through his tears that finally seem to have left. Again. Hopefully they stayed away a little longer this time.

“We’ll figure it out, yeah?” Harry asked again.

“Yeah. We always do.”

Or the one where Harry and Louis have been best friends since they could remember and their friendship has withstood it all…but an unexpected pregnancy might change everything. MPREG

Home For Christmas by @haloeverlasting / ao3 (22k) ONE SHOT 

The Shameless Hallmark Movie AU you probably didn’t ask for.

Or, the one where Harry didn’t think he wanted a family, but with a little Christmas magic (and maybe one Louis Tomlinson) he realizes that he is very, very wrong. CHRISTMAS, KID FIC

Waiting For Wonderful by @becomeawendybird / ao3 (13k) ONE SHOT

The university class where he met Louis was the beginning of the end for Harry. It took all of an hour for him to figure out that he was in love with Louis, and there was no way around it. It was a part of his DNA; he was tall, he had green eyes, and he was in love with Louis Tomlinson. Louis was his soulmate, and they were going to be together. Eventually.

Harry is willing to wait as long as he needs to for his best friend to realise that they’re supposed to be together, but it kills him to watch Louis struggle in his relationship with Mackenzie. All Harry wants to do is be supportive, and sometimes that’s all it takes. BEST FRIENDS TO LOVERS

We’ll Rise Up by @suddenclarityharry / ao3 (18k) ONE SHOT

“So,” Liam begins with a smile, “you were the associate pastor at your last church?”

“Yes,” Louis can already feel himself scrunching down in his seat, shrinking against even the reminder of the church he was forced from.

“Was that a good experience for you?” Liam steeples his hands in front of him as he leans his elbows on the desk in interest.

“It was for a while but, to be honest, things ended rather badly,” Louis leans forward too, he needs to get this out and he wants to tell Liam everything, have everything on the table.

Leaning forward even more, Liam seems to be looking for the same thing, “What happened?”

Louis can feel the trembles in his hands again, so he sits on them, biting his lip before admitting, “They found out I’m gay.”

In the hallway, there’s a terribly loud thump and then a grunt of pain and Louis twists around to see Harry, sprawled out on the ground just outside the doorway.

Or Louis is a Pastor with no church and a heart filled with uncertainty. Pastor Payne is more than willing to give Louis a new place to work, but it’s Music Director Harry that helps him rebuild his faith. RELIGIOUS

(We Will Be) As If Chosen by @alivingfire / ao3 (35k) ONE SHOT

There’s not a royal in the world who doesn’t carry some sort of secret, and Prince Louis has more than his fair share. To protect himself and his family, Louis withdrew from the public eye and tried to live a quiet life, biding his time until his sister Lottie could take the throne in his stead. Unfortunately for him, the national media and the worst person Louis has ever met team up to bring him kicking and screaming back into the spotlight.

Under the watchful eyes of millions, Louis has to figure out how to keep his carefully constructed house of cards from falling, and the first step to accomplishing that is to keep from falling in love with the irritatingly charming Prince Harry, who just won’t stop showing up and trying to whisk Louis out of the constraints of his boring life.

Or: the course of true love never did run smooth, because sometimes people are stubborn and sometimes people are scared and sometimes, just sometimes, love can cause just as many problems as it solves. MODERN ROYALTY, HATE TO LOVE

73 Questions by @literlarryreal / ao3 (6k) ONE SHOT

Louis is more nervous than usual about filming the upcoming episode of Vogue’s 73 questions. Musician and soon to be actor Harry Styles may have something to do with that. BANTER

Combat Medic space Orcs

I created a Tumblr specifically for humans are weird/space orcs. This is my contribution: Combat Medics.
As a veteran combat medic myself the concept looking back seems kind of outrageous. In the early period of their existence combat medics were military noncombatants. But in recent years we have been fighting enemies who will kill or attack anyone sporting a red cross. So the military has changed its tactics and mixed their medics in to the rest of the unit by arming them and taking away their red crosses. This effectively made us healers who can, and will shoot the enemy.

I wonder how aliens, who have a treaty similar to the Geneva Convention would take this…

Captain Drex'la , Commander of the Rentu, a Frigate class pirate hunting ship, had received orders from Galactic Command to dock and rotate out some of his crew. When he arrived at space dock he received notice of a last minute change and he was receiving two Terrans. This set the commander’s beak on edge. He had heard of the ferocity and ingenuity of human non-combat officers, but he was also aware that most humans will disregard rank structure if it does not suit them.

After some consideration he decided to speak with them individually after they came aboard to see if they were worth keeping. He received their service and personal records and reviewed them briefly and became confused immediately by one. With this he called in petty officer Davis.

Davis arrived promptly to the captain’s office and snapped a sharp salute, “You wished to see me sir?”

Drex'la’s neck quills shuttered as the universal translator transformed his words into a series of grunts, chirps, and clicks he could understand. The sound always seemed so artificial to him though, lacking any inflection. “At ease. I believe there was a mistake in your assignment here petty officer.”

The petty officer dropped his salute and cocked his head slightly, as if he may have heard the captain wrong, “I don’t understand sir.”

At this the captain’s quills rattled, the universal translator must have translated improperly. He pondered his next words carefully before responding, “I started reviewing your service record,” the captain held up his pad and pointing at the petty officer’s picture on the screen. “It says your service in the Earth navy was as a ‘medic’ with your marines. We have no need for additional medical staff on this ship.”

Once the translator finished it’s job Davis’s eyes narrowed slightly and the edges of his mouth curled into the faintest “smile”. The captain realized that even subdued, a smile was unsettling. “Sir,” Davis responded, “I am here to serve with the boarding party, not in the infirmary.”

This made Drex'la almost drop the pad, “But you are a medical professional. We are out hunting pirates, they do not follow the Rel'tésh Accords. They will not hesitate to shoot you or take you hostage. You have no place on the front line.” The captain was beginning to think this human had not understood his orders coming on board.

However the human gave a “nod” and responded, “I am aware sir, and I am a not going in unarmed. I am a veteran combat medic who is trained to fight and provide aid to the injured. I was assigned to you to serve as a marine first and medic second.”

The captain does shakily set down the pad now. “You being a combatant breaks the Rel'tésh Accords.” His tone elevating in pitch and the air sacks under his quills began to inflate in anger.“ I will not have you breaking the laws of my people!”

To this Davis simply responded. “I am not a medic attacking an enemy, I am a combatant who can give aid. There is the critical difference sir. The Galactic Command seems to agree.”

After a very long pause the commander clicked his beak in exasperation. The human had not stepped out of line or directly challenged his command in any way and yet he had the captain ‘over a barrel’ as the humans say it. “What special equipment will you need?” The captain finally spoke.

“I will get with the ship’s doctor and review the crews basic anatomy and medical needs. Then I will modify my load out to be of the best aid to the most crew members with the least amount of equipment. Think of it as a stopgap between the doctor and the front line.”

With this the captain handed him a pad and dismissed him and as the petty officer turned for the door and left the captain felt very tired by what had transpired.

Fast forward half an earth cycle and the petty officer is now commonly referred to as “Doc” by most of the crew. The captain has put him in for 4 commendations and the captain is sure he will always have a “medic” on his ship after this.

anonymous asked:

i know you ship remadora but i was wondering what your thoughts were on the hospital scene from HBP?

(( OOC: Ah, yes. That scene. I know a lot of people find the hospital scene at the end of The Half-Blood Prince an uncomfortable interaction between Remus and Tonks, and I don’t disagree with you. However, I personally think that we are given such a lack of context surrounding that scene that it would be unfair to interpret it as a stand-alone interaction, especially given the fact it’s viewed completely through Harry’s narrative.

I’ve actually been doing some research recently on the timeline surrounding these events, and especially the period between the final two books perhaps you’ll find out why soon. Dumbledore’s death and the Battle of the Seven Potters took place roughly a month apart, at the end of June and the end of July 1997. During this time several things happened: the Order moved their base to The Burrow, there was another mass break-out of death eaters from Azkaban, and guess what else? Remus and Tonks got married.

Now a lot of people assume Remus and Tonks’ relationship didn’t officially start until after the hospital scene, when they were seen holding hands at Dumbledore’s funeral. But I think it’s massively unlikely that Remus and Tonks decided to become an official couple and then immediately get married… all within the space of a month?

A much more likely theory is that they had been in an established relationship for way longer than that, probably since the beginning of the Half-Blood Prince. We know Remus is an angsty little shit who refuses to believe that he’s good enough for anyone, let alone Tonks. She even says, “I’ve told you a million times…” so Remus and Tonks have been very aware of each others feelings for a while.

We also know Remus panicked and left Tonks after he found out she was pregnant - therefore it’s not entirely unlikely he may have done the same thing once before, because of an equally daunting situation. I think it’s likely that Remus realised he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Tonks, completely freaked himself out, and left.

And listen - if your boyfriend went from madly in love with you to completely ignoring you… you’d bloody well confront him about it in a crowded hospital ward too. If Remus had been refusing to talk to Tonks for a couple of weeks, and that hospital scene was the first time he had been forced in a room with her, then no wonder she reacted how she did. And let’s be honest, at this point Remus definitely needed a few people telling him what an idiot he was being.

So, Remus chills out, let’s himself love the woman he wants without punishing himself, and marries Tonks like he wanted to all along. And they all lived happily ever after the end.

Of course, these are just my personal head canons - and if you disagree, cool. Ship who you wanna, they’re just fictional characters after all. But I think this theory works with what little canon information we have, and maybe explains some of the reasoning a little bit more. ))

Stranger Things Superpower AU
  • Dustin Henderson: Shapeshifting

Dustin can shapeshift into anyone or anything, so long as he’s seen them. He really enjoys flying as an eagle, or running as a cheetah, or messing with bullies disguised as an adult. As hard as he tried, however, he can’t turn into a mix of two animals like a pegasus or a mermaid.

  • Lucas Sinclair: Illusion

Not unlike a certain outlaw, Lucas can make anyone see anything he want. What makes him more powerful though, is not only he can make optical illusion, he can also make people hear, smell, taste, and even feel anything, including pain. additionally, he can also make people to not feel anything.

  • Max Mayfield: Teleportation

Max’s power is what can be called a late-bloomer. She doesn’t teleport for the first time until a few months after she moved to Hawkins. Mostly she used her powers to visit her dad in California or take Lucas into impromptu dates around the world. She keeps coming back to the boys though, because (and she’ll never admit it) they are the first ones who made her feel wanted.

controversial opinion

people who are straight and cis: your friends and relatives should not be forced to choose between giving you an entire 101-level education in gender and sexuality or forever suffering through your clueless remarks/questions that, trust me, are sometimes incredibly painful, however well-intentioned you are

and they definitely should not have to spend years laying this groundwork of educating you in order to feel safe coming out to you

do. your own. research.

Even if you think you don’t know anyone who isn’t straight and cis, I guarantee you that you are wrong, and you should educate yourself so you’re not an additional burden to them before or after they come out to you. It is unfair to expect them to personally tutor you out of your cluelessness, when they’re the marginalised person and you’re the one with nothing to lose.

You have Google. Use it. And actively seek out writers who are trans and gay and bi etc and read what they have to say. Don’t rely on whatever bits of mainstream or even feminist media drift your way. Your loved ones deserve better.


someone you know who has to brace every time this topic comes up because you literally do not know how offensive you’re being, I love you but oh my god, please stop

refrigeratedsnakes  asked:

Lance sees his older sister in Allura and sometimes he swears she looks like her and jumbles their names together and Allura thinks hes flirting when hes calling her this strange human name when he says it by accidnet

Oh I never thought about this before. Thank you! 

Lance wasn’t exactly sure when it all started but slowly everyday he would see more and more of his older sister Cleo in Allura. 

He didn’t understand why. Maybe it was how she took control of the situation. Something that Cleo would always do, since she was the oldest. 

Maybe it was how friendly she was to the mice. Cleo was always nice to animals, making her lovable to any animal.

Maybe it was how Allura took care of all of them. Cleo usually stepped up to the plate and took care of everyone when both of Lance’s parents were at work. 

Lance couldn’t really figure out what it was. 


“Alright paladins, please be at the training deck in 15 minuets.” 

Lance wanted to reply with the usual ‘yes princess’ however he couldn’t stop himself from thinking of Cleo. “Sure thing Cleo!” Lance slammed his hand over his mouth. He stared at Allura and he could feel his teammate stares, he quickly mumbled an apology and walked out of the kitchen. 

‘that was so embarrassing, I can’t believe I just did that. To the princess! Of all people’  Lance entered the training deck and attempted to ignore the confused looks that his teammate gave him. 


Lance thought that, that was going to be a one time mistake, however he was sorely mistaking. 

Lance stopped counting how many times he would mess up Allura’s name with Cleo.  Allura would say an order and Lance would respond with something he would say to Cleo. He couldn’t stop no matter how hard he tried. 

Lance could also see how annoyed Allura was getting. 


“Paladins we have a busy day ahead of us. We will be practicing flying. Lance you go with Pidge, Hunk with Kieth. Shiro you stay with me. I will need help watching how they fly.” 

“Yes princess.” Everyone,except Lance,said in unison. 

Lance of course said “Sure thing Cl-” \

“Lance.” Allura cut him off. “ I appreciate your ‘flirting’ however this is not the time to be giving me pet names. Now please get to your lion and we can continue.” 

Lance swallowed around the lump in his throat. “Yes princess.” 


This low key tore my heart out. 

I hope you like it!

anonymous asked:

am i the only one whos salty that shiro did so much to bond with his lion. he went to great lengths to strengthen his bond only for it to basically go to waste? like will shiro really not be a paladin again?! was him getting the bayard back, fighting zarkon, activating the wings, getting to know about his lion's bg, and seeing through black's eyes really all for nothing? all of that work so he could stay back at hq and give out orders? i'm pretty bitter tbh

yes i’m mad salty about this! he worked really hard, and that was honestly his entire character arc last season. however, i’m pretty sure the only reason shiro can’t currently pilot the black lion is because he’s not really shiro. i think there’s a really good chance we’ll see him pilot the black lion again.

at the end of last season, shiro got his bayard back from zarkon, gained the ability to teleport, and was able to form the blazing sword with keith,  that’s a lot! and none of those are one-offs, in my mind.

@dragonescence and i were talking yesterday, and they had a really cool theory about what might happen in season 4. if we get real shiro back and we have too many paladins, one option is to have shiro sit it out, but the other is that something might happen to keith.

so far he’s kind of been the rock of the series. the only exception to this is when shiro is involved. he breaks orders to help shiro, he doesn’t want to be leader and take shiro’s place, etc. other than that? keith is made of steel.

the blade of marmora episode was really eye opening because even though kolivan explicitly says knowledge or death, keith doesn’t hesitate. and he doesn’t quit. i don’t know if anyone realizes this, but it’s explicitly stated that he fought for a bare minimum of 18 hours. they go out of their way to give us times in that episode. keith vastly undervalues his own life and he doesn’t quit, and there’s a real chance that could come into play eventually.

specifically, when it comes to shiro. i’ve had a few asks/prompts about this, too: what would keith give up for shiro? a lot, i think. like not to be dramatic, but given what the series has shown us so far, if keith has to make a hard choice between shiro and himself, that’s no choice at all. i don’t think there’s anything he wouldn’t give up, honestly. @dragonescence also pointed out that so far in the series, shiro has been motivated totally by duty. having something happen to keith might give him a bigger stake in this fight. anyway! just an interesting theory.

Tasting and Enjoying

Scenario: Zico and you are stuck in a limbo of sexual frustration, feelings, and friendship.
A/N: This was honestly just a reason to write out one of the two smuts I had planned for Zico. I’m not 100% okay with this, but as per usual, I’ve done all I can with it and hopefully it’s at least halfway decent.
Genre: Zico x Reader
Words: 3897
Warnings: Smut. Shameless smut made to go with a story, because I’m a horrible person. Also, some suggestive gif use.

Disclaimer: As always, the gifs used are not mine and belong to their rightful owners.

The deafening sound of the rain hitting the roof of the car was all you could hear for the past few minutes. The air thick with tension and unspoken words that laid heavy with pride. The dangerous game you’d both been playing finally coming to an explosive end neither of you saw coming.

You both made a silent choice to never speak about what you were because, frankly, neither of you knew. You enjoyed each other’s company without the restraint or thought of time. It didn’t matter what you did or where you went, so long as the two of you were together; it made sense.

It wasn’t until a night after an underground show when you’d both had just a little too much to drink, that things changed.

You couldn’t remember what the two of you had found so funny. The alcohol clouding up your thoughts and left your body warm beside his. The both of you stepping into the elevator mumbling incoherent words through giggles while he tried to remember his favorite part of the show. His words coming out jumbled and slurred.

The elevator doors closed around you and gave a jolt that sent your unsteady legs fumbling. Zico moved to steady you; pulling you closer to him. You’d looked up at him with a smile still spread on your lips. Ready to thank him for the assist when everything stopped.

sex with exo-k 🌙

junmyeon 🗡

some people may not agree, but i think junmyeon has a daddy kink. i say this because of how caring he is with his members; he resembles a guardian figure. i think he would be the same way in bed, with a few other aspects added into it all. i’m not quite sure how to word this in a way that would be easily understanded…. while he would give lots of pleasure and care for you in bed, i feel that he would really reveal a new side of himself. something he can’t display around anyone else.

he’d prefer to call you ‘babygirl/boy’ (or ‘sweetheart’ if you use they/them pronouns). things would be kicked off by slow oral, in which he holds your hips down and uses his skillful tongue on you. of course, you’ll cum this way at least twice before he shows a desire to really fuck you. not only does he want you to be nice and ready for him, he wants you to beg a little for it.

throughout the sex itself, it’ll be very clear who’s in charge. he’ll be very soft with you, yet he’ll have a dominant vibe about himself. he knows that you won’t disobey him, so he has no reason to be overly rough or to bark harsh orders at you. as long as you’re good for him, he’ll make sure you see stars.

baekhyun 🎃

with baekhyun, i think you’ll get something new every time. because of this, i’ll do a far lengthier post on him alone, but let’s see what i can group together for now. as we all know, baekhyun is very shameless, loud, and rowdy. all of these traits would carry over into the bedroom, bringing together a very wild night each time you both have sex.

needless to say, he isn’t afraid to be loud. he is a switch (with a submissive preference), so he’ll be very noisy when subbing for you, whining especially loud at every single touch. no matter his role, he’ll be taunting, too. always pushing for more. if he wants more, he won’t just ask for it, he’ll slyly make sure he gets it. degradation? he’s into that too, on both ends. of course it would come into play here.

because he likes using things such as handcuffs and flogs every now and again, he chose a safeword, just in case. it’s 'sexy pineapple.’ he jokes, but he really would like if you use it whenever you become uncomfortable with anything he does/wishes to do. he’s into so much, that may actually be an instance once or twice.

jongin 🦇

jongin strikes me as a switch more than anything. on stage, he transforms into a very self-aware, sexy man, while he’s practically a bunny everywhere else. he either likes no roles, or he wants to be a little dominate with you, much like the two personas previously stated. the latter is a bit more common though.

vanilla sex with him is satisfying, but more than just sexually. he’ll hold your hand. he’ll giggle when you kiss his neck or blow cool air onto it. it’s not only loving, but it’s a lighthearted affair. it’s about more than sex, it’s about simply enjoying each other. he’d nip at the skin of your chest, only to break out into light laughter at the noise it elicited from you. he’d do it again, just so he can tease you about it afterward.

then there are nights that are so contrasting. these are very needy sessions, where he will tear the clothing from your body if it meant he could touch you sooner. he’s in need of your touch. foreplay would be scarce, aside from causing a few hickies to bloom on the skin of your neck and collarbones. he’ll take you from behind then, pull on your hair a bit. a safeword isn’t really needed; he’ll stop something as soon as you ask.

sehun 🔮

sehun has shown before that he enjoys being the center of attention when he can be. this is exactly the case in bed; thus making him a bratty sub (in my opinion of course). i don’t think he’s afraid of causing a little fuss to get what he wants either. he’s the baby of exo after all, so he’s used to being treated like one. being cared for, given into.

he likes when you call him your baby, and when you do things for him. lap dances and stripteases are a favorite of his. despite being so submissive, he likes to think he’s calling the shots. he hates being cuffed up because it prevents him from touching you as he pleases, but it’s often required to keep him from going far too fast. he’s impatient; he tries to rush things along so that he can get off.

more often than not, you get off by riding him—whether it be his face or his dick. he isn’t one for begging, so don’t expect any of that. however, he’s better at taking orders than one would expect. he’s very gifted with his tongue and he knows how to use it well. tell him to eat you out/rim you and he will.

in real life, chanyeol is a bit clumsy, sheepish, and awkward. i can see him being very awkward and inexperienced in bed. no offense, but this man is the type to make a pornhub account in his mother’s email address. i think he really would like to be a dominant person in bed, but he hasn’t quite gotten there yet. he’s very nervous about a lot because he doesn’t want to hurt you more than what you can visibly take.

he likes when you ride him, so he can get a feel of the pace you seem to enjoy, while being able to take control of your hips. or he’ll wrap a hand around the column of your throat, hesitantly beginning to tighten his grip. he gets nervous when your breathing gets shaker and shakier, and waits intently for the safeword/signal. he’ll also slowly step into the waters of degradation, if you’re alright with it. talking of sex is so awkward for most people, but i think he may ask you about this bit beforehand, so he knows where the line is.

kyungsoo 🔫

in my opinion, kyungsoo is a very rough dom. he’s shown more of a violent side toward his members in how he hits or threatens them from time to time (junmyeon seems to be afraid of him sometimes), so i can definitely see him being very rough in the bedroom. while he does take you into cconsideration, there are only rare occasions where he wants to make love to you. unless it’s a special night, he wants to fuck you.

i see him being into a lot of things which require a separate post of their own, but i’ll begin with orgasm denial. he likes winding you up, making it seem as though you’re going to get a treat for riding his cock so well before simply leaving you hanging. in order to see an orgasm again that night, you’ll need to beg him for one. in addition to this, he likes face fucking you. it’ll usually take place after he’s fucked you doggy style, so he can taunt you about how filthy it is that you’re sucking yourself off of him. he’ll grab a fistful of your hair in his hand and guide you along his shaft at whatever pace he’s in the mood for.

for the record, he isn’t a complete asshole. aftercare is a must, and it’s very sweet at that. there’s both a safeword and a safe signal (for when you have your mouth full/ball gagged), which he encourages the use of if need be. he tries to be aware of your limits and tries not to test them, especially on accident.

anonymous asked:

My main issue with team cap is that there seems to be this implication that he knows what's best/right. When Bucky is framed, there is footage of him (albeit a fake him) so it's not unreasonable for the government to consider him the criminal. Also, he may be a good guy but the fact remains that a series of words can send him into kill mode, as seen during his holding. That's dangerous, and I don't think it's unreasonable for the government to want him restrained. Besides, taking Bucky into the+

+ heart of the operation involving people who know how to trigger this kill mode seems like an unnecessary risk. If Bucky was brought in, Steve could have still gone on and investigated the situation, perhaps with some willing avengers at his side and proven Bucky’s innocence

Can I just say that I’m so happy you guys are messaging me about this? I fucking love talking about the MCU let’s go

Okay, so I totally understand and agree with your perspective on the “knowing what’s best” thing. I think the Avengers need to work with local governments more– they shouldn’t go trapezing into situations, just assuming they can make decisions in foreign countries. 

However, I saw that “the safest hands are still our own” line as less “my / our judgement is best” and more “I don’t trust the government.” During the collapse of Shield, Steve found out that he’s been working next to the bad guys for years without knowing, following orders because he trusted that Shield was doing the right thing because it was made by Peggy– but, like he says in Civil War, agendas change, guys like Pierce come into power, and suddenly you might not be fighting the good fight anymore.

Steve never actually argued against accountability, he argued against blind compliance. He thinks that having the Avengers making the decisions is the safest bet because, hey, at least he knows what the Avengers actually think, as opposed to some strangers on a council who doubtless have their own agendas. Still not the best approach, and I definitely think some sort of communication system or liaison with the world governments is necessary here, but I think Steve would have actually agreed to that– he just doesn’t want every decision to be put in the hands of someone else.

As for Bucky, I thought that the main issue was that he wasn’t going to be restrained– Sharon said the government had a kill order on him. No due process or anything. The only reason he was actually brought in alive was because Steve went out there and got his ass involved. But even that went to shit because Zemo infiltrated the government as a psychiatrist, brainwashed Bucky, and had him attack Steve. So I mean, sure, Bucky probably shouldn’t have been involved in a fight with the people who know his trigger words, but the alternative was leaving him in Ross’s care, which already fucked them over once (seriously how did no one notice Zemo wasn’t the psychiatrist they hired like-), so I can see why they weren’t exactly stoked to turn him back in, given that they had evidence that the government could be pretty easily infiltrated.

Basically Team Iron Man, as described by Tony himself, was “we need to be put in check, whatever form that takes I’m game,” which made me uncomfortable because I think that Tony was really just throwing his faith at anyone that wasn’t himself (seriously can someone give this man a hug and some therapy with a non-nazi psych). And I do think the movie presented that as being a bad idea. The situation was complicated but I definitely still jive more with Cap on this one, I don’t know.

Alison is A.D theory

I keep thinking about this tweet. The only people who were upset about Charlotte’s death are Alison, Archer and Mary Drake. We know that A.D is tormenting the liars into revealing the identity of Charlotte’s killer. Alison, Archer and Mary all have a motive to be A.D, however Archer is dead and Mary seems to be off the suspect list. That leaves us with Alison. If you had asked me 2 days ago who I think A.D is, Alison wouldn’t have crossed my mind. However, I’ve been re-watching Season 6 in order to find some clues and I noticed some things along the way.

(This is my first “theory” so please bare with me. If there are any mistakes, please excuse me. English is not my first language. I just want to share my thoughts)

First of all, why would she be A.D? What’s her motive? Avenging her sister’s death is a pretty solid one. It could also be something petty like “I did not sacrifice 5 years of my life trying to get someone out of a mental institution for them to get killed the minute they do. I will not accept this kind of treatment”  

Now, let’s go back to season 6. 

Remember how “shady” Alison was towards the girls in 6x12 during the dinner scenes? She practically accused Aria of being Charlotte’s killer and later implied that Spencer, Hanna and Emily were covering for her


The first text that the girls received from A.D is “You know who did it and I’m going to make you talk” in episode 6x13. Alison sent that text. She realized that confronting the girls was useless since they wouldn’t spill anything. She also couldn’t count on the Rosewood’s Police departement to find out who Charlotte’s killer is, so she decided to take matters into her own hands.

We know that A.D has access to Charlotte’s old things (the masks, the black hoodies etc). You may think “Oh A.D must have stolen them” but what if they were given to A.D? I’m pretty sure everything Charlotte owned was given to her family (Alison) once Charlotte was locked away.

Let’s not forget that Alison was the liars’ main suspect at one point, but that all changed once Alison started getting texts from A.D too. How convenient. Alison could have easily sent those texts to herself in order to raise suspicions off of her. It’s not that far-fetched, Mona did it too back in season 2. That’s the best alibi ever.

Also notice how Alison is always on some random trips? She’s probably still in Rosewood plotting her endgame.

Alison could have been working with Archer too. They both wanted Charlotte out of the mental institution and probably teamed up when she was murdered. However Archer double crossed her once he found out that Alison lied to him about the night Charlotte was murdered. He started suspecting her too. As revenge, she tricked the girls into killing him. Why? Because Alison likes to get rid of people when she doesn’t need them anymore (Thanks for that quote Noel Khan, may you rest in peace) but also to keep her new hobby a secret.

Let’s not forget the term “AD” itself. A.D could literally just stand for Alison Dilaurentis. Let’s not forget that Andrea Parker said that Mary couldn’t be A.D because her initials aren’t “AD”

Why would she get herself pregnant with Emily’s eggs? Because she’s a sociopath who has no boundaries and trouble with gambling with other people’s lives. The liars’ are her dolls and she’s been playing with them since they were teenagers. Life is just one big game to Alison.

You may think “Oh but Alison changed during the time jump”. I honestly believe she hasn’t changed at all. For 5 YEARS, Alison stayed in Rosewood and fought for Charlotte’s freedom. It would be impossible for someone to move on and change when they relive their past when they see the person who tormented them for years every single day. You know what they say, “out of sight, out of mind”, well if they’re not out of your sight, then they clearly won’t be out of your mind

The show will reportedly come full circle. If that’s the case, then the show should end with Alison since it began with her.

You are finally able to get him to look up at you. His eyes widen a little at the sight of you. He can’t even form a proper response. So, you take that as a yes and leave to order the food. But as you leave you hear him say,

“Woah, so sexy!”
