i didn't plan it to end up like this but ok

anonymous asked:

so like... what if keith had died infiltrating that galra base in the last s2 ep... and what if shiro didn't disappear. (i mean voltron is the key to their win so i guess they'd flee) what do u think would have happened?

aSDFGHJKLLL;FD   An ON,,,,   

i was not prepared for this ask bro lmao. ok but,,, really though: Shiro knew the risks. No one sugarcoated this. Kolivan literally called it a suicide mission, so Shiro was ready to face facts. As much as he clearly hates the thought of losing Keith, of letting him go ahead and sacrifice himself–he has to literally stop and close his eyes and compose himself for a moment–he knows they have limited options. Keith not making it was a very real possibility. Shiro had to accept that. 

And as for what his plan would be if Keith didn’t make it out well,, Shiro flat out tells Pidge there isn’t one

If Keith died, I completely believe there would’ve been no way to back up the plan and they would have to just get out and go. I imagine the paladins would react pretty similarly to how they did when Allura “died”–they would all kind of freeze up and break down, so Shiro would have to take charge and snap them out of it, convince them to keep going and concentrate on just surviving the fight. There will be time to mourn later, when they’re back at the castle and they don’t have to worry about anymore casualties. If they’re lucky, then they’ll escape with all the lions and just wormhole out; if they’re not, then Red will go autopilot and attack Zarkon’s fleet, rampaging like she did in BOM. In which case, the galra might recapture her. Just like before. 

The paladins would definitely be inconsolable for a while. Shiro puts up a brave face in front of them, holds them and listens to them when they need it. But as soon as he slips back into his own room, away from everyone else, he lets himself cry. And he just breaks down. Because all this time he thought it would be him. If anyone, he thought for sure he wouldn’t make it. But Keith always believed, always had such hope–and he looks at Shiro and saying things like It’s good to have you back, and My life would be a lot different without you. And Shiro chose Keith as his successor because he saw that hope, that fighting spirit. And he thought it would carry everyone else to victory long after he was gone. 

But now Keith’s dead and he’s not, and he’s not quite sure how to even process that. 

And I mean, no one else looked out during that fight and softly said Keith’s name like this

Losing Keith would hit them all hard alright. But I don’t think it’s a secret Shiro would be hurt the most. He’s the only one who knows Keith on such a close personal level. He would have to try to shoulder on though, to keep himself together for everyone else’s sake. I could see him being a lot quieter and more withdrawn though. And all the paladins are probably a lot more jaded and serious. Shiro will also have to find someone else to train as a future leader eventually. But I think it will be a while before he’s emotionally ready to commit to something like that again. 

The thing about Keith dying and Shiro disappearing though, is you can at least bring Shiro back. Dying is a little more permanent. But even still, we know of Voltron characters who have cheated death. Zarkon has unnaturally prolonged his life for 10,000 years. So, with enough quintessence and something resembling a body, provided you had a druid or two, I’m pretty sure you can get a zombie galra keith out of the deal if you wanted to. 

I don’t think Shiro would go crawling back to the witch who took his arm and beg for her to bring back his closest friend as a hollow shell of himself feeding off stolen life though. However, if Haggar were to resurrect Keith on her own and use him as a bargaining chip, well–I think that’s a different story. After all, she called Shiro their “greatest weapon.” She clearly poured a lot of time and resources into him and probably wants her investment back. I can see Shiro willingly turning himself in to save Keith. Especially considering how guilty he would probably feel over letting him suffer so much already. Not that it’s Shiro’s fault, but he would still feel responsible. 

And I mean, if the galra first captured the red lion back during the Altean war, then they’ve had her for a solid 10,000 years–and presumably, they haven’t found a pilot in all that time. Like, she’s really picky. So if they did recapture Red, then it just makes sense to bring back Keith and try to brainwash him if they could. What’s the use in keeping a lion if you don’t have anyone to pilot it? 

Plus, once the druids set to work and figure out he’s galra, I’m sure that will give them even more incentive. Zarkon said Keith fought like one and he meant it as a compliment; he’s always talking about returning the lions to the empire where they belong. I think in his mind, leaving the red lion with a galra (albeit only a half-blooded one) would be just fine. So long as they made sure he was loyal.

Of course, this is really just veering more into personal headcannon territory lmao. On the paladins’ end I think the basic goal would stay the same–find a new fifth pilot and figure out how to form Voltron. You just have to replace Keith instead of Shiro. I assume Lance would still switch to Red and Allura to blue, and they’d just work with Shiro still piloting Black.

The help I didn't ask part 2

Lance was crying he kept crying on Lotor’s arms as the smoke cloud start to disappear “LANCE?! LANCE BUDDY WHERE ARE YOU?!” Hunk voice sound at the distance and Lotor was the first one to hear it “its looks like your friend is looking for you…Lance isn’t it” Lance just step away and nod he was feeling a littler better after that hug Lotor kept his hands on Lance shoulders but when he took them down he grab a type of cellphone and hand it to Lance “if you ever feel like opening up again…just call and I’ll come” and with that Lotor disappear in what was left of smoke Lance walk to his Bayard and pick it up “Lance are you there?!” Allura say on Lance helmet “I’m here” Lance answer still in shook of what just happen remains silence “You stop answering and we thought we heard you crying are you alright?” Allura ask concern “huh….oh yeah yeah I’m fine” ‘I’m not fucking fine I just got a hug from Lotor our enemy and the worse part it felt good ugh!! I must have lost my sanity!!’ Lance wasn’t sad or depress he was conflicted with himself and the team notice Lance was more distract than before every time someone ask him something he would only answers with “uh ummm yeah yeah” it didn’t matter what was the question and one day Lance got hurt on the training deck because he was distract “End training sequence!” Shiro yelled “Lance are you alright?” Pidge ask while hunk help him up “huh? Oh yeah I’m fine it didn’t hurt” Lance answer “what the hell Lance keep it together you’re way too distract lately” Keith say getting close to Lance “Keith is right Lance you haven’t been paying attention lately” hunk told him “of course I’ve been” Lance say “uhhh no you haven’t Lance yesterday I asked you what was you favorite video game and you answers ‘uhhh ummm yeah yeah!’ You’re not paying attention at your surroundings” pidge told him “Lance we are worry about you” shiro place a hand on Lance shoulder ‘oh worry about me?! You should’ve been worry about me a week ago then I wouldn’t be in this mess’ Lance thought “I’m just tired alright” Lance said while he move Shiro’s hand off his shoulder “TIRED OF WHAT?” Allura voice cut the air like a sharp knife “you haven’t been working like the other paladins and now you’re not even training like one!” Allura step in front of Lance and glare at him making eye contact “If you have a problem you should tell us now!” She order “I don’t have any problem I’m alright” Lance answers ‘I do have a problem but I can’t tell you because then you will decide I’m no good for being a paladin’ Lance was worry about his secret being discover “If you don’t have any problem then why are you so distract? The galra empire could attack at any second and all you do is fail like a paladin” not again Lance could not deal with his position as a paladin being put on doubt again “The blue paladin of Voltron always keeps their concentration sharp and you’re failing on doing it maybe Keith was right and you are NO paladin” Allura say and the whole team gasp “I’m no paladin?” Lance say with his voice cracking it took Allura under 5 ticks to realize what she just said “Well if I’m no paladin then WHY THE HELL IM HERE?! You know what SCREW IT!!” Lance throw away a his helmet and gave Allura his Bayard “good luck finding a new blue paladin” Lance went to the scape pots and flew to the farers planet he could found but he took his weird galra cellphone back with the paladins when They got out of the shook of Lance leaving “what.the fuck was that for?!” Pidge broke the silence “I…did he really?” Allura ask “leave? Yes princess he did” Coran said “he also turn off his tracker” “did we just lost a paladin?” Shiro asked “No!” Keith said “we have to somehow contact Lance and bring him back Voltron is not gonna lose a paladin for a litter mistake like this one" meanwhile with Lance was staring at that weird phone and he finally decide… he needed to talk to someone

After 10 minutes of activating the phone a galra ship got to Lance location and Lotor came out of the ship “so problems on heaven?” “Hah that place is anything but heave” Lance answered walking to Lotor “I quit” Lance said to Lotor with his voice cracking again “oh now now Lance they need you you are the most perfect thing voltron ever had you can’t just quit” Lotor had a plan if the blue paladin trust him enough he will get him so information in change of emotional support that was exactly what he was going to do “now tell me what annoyed you this time” Lotor and Lance chat for hours Lance told him everything that happen on the castle and his problems Lotor told him some problems too they share histories and jokes until “Lance Lance are you there” Lance ship sound with pidge voice Lotor till his head and raise an eyebrow to the scape pod so Lance would talk “yes I’m here” he said without stop staring at Lotor he was going to follow his “sugestión” “Allura didn’t really mean it Lance she-” “is alright I over reacted I’ll turn on my tracker because I don’t really knows where am I” Lance was falling for Lotor’s game without even realizing when he stop talking to his friends Lotor stand up and say “you know what to do if you ever need me” and it suddenly in turn into something normal for Lance every time he was feeling bad or just wanted a hug he would sneak out to see Lotor until one day “ok now ummm truth or dare” Lance ask
“Truth” Lotor respond “why did you ask if I was alright when we first hugged?” Lotor was waiting for that question so he could get Lance in the palm of his hand “because you remind me of how broken I used to be when I saw your red eyes and those huge eye bags I could tell the paladins weren’t treating you well” Lance was impress and blush “geez you really know how to sweet talk someone” “oh and that’s not the only thing I can do” Lotor said before kissing Lance and respond to the kiss ‘checkmate Paladins of voltron’ was the last thing Lotor thought

take this burden - part 19

[ ends of the earth - lord huron ]

-

They woke to Rou flinging the door open and loudly informing them that there were pancakes downstairs.


‘Jesus, Rou, what if we’d been naked?’


‘Absolutely nothing.’


‘What?’


She walked off.


‘Should I be offended?’ He Tian asked.


‘That’s a safe bet.’


They’d shifted slightly as they slept.


Somehow, Felix had acquired the majority of the blanket.


When He Tian didn’t get out of the bed, Mo Guan Shan climbed over him.


He Tian followed him to the bathroom.


Mo Guan Shan said something unintelligible, his mouth full of toothpaste.


‘…what?’


Mo Guan Shan spit.


‘Did you bring a toothbrush?’


‘No, I completely spaced. I’m fine until we get home.’


‘You can use mine if you want.’


‘Isn’t that kind of…gross?’


‘Compared to what? Spending the day with un-brushed teeth?’


He Tian had no response.


He took the toothbrush when Mo Guan Shan offered it to him.


Mo Guan Shan sat on the edge of the tub while he cleaned his teeth.


‘Sorry about last night.’


He Tian glanced at him out of the corner of his eye.


‘What do you mean?’


‘I try not to drink that much on a regular basis. I hope I wasn’t too bad.’


‘What’s the last thing you remember?’ He Tian asked warily.


‘Taking a shower.’


He Tian sighed in intense relief.


‘Shit, did I do something stupid?’ Mo Guan Shan asked.


‘Nope, you just went to sleep.’


‘Are you lying?’


‘Only a little.’


‘We didn't…’


‘No. I like to think that you’d remember that.’


‘I didn’t mean it like-’


‘I know, I’m kidding.’


He Tian spit out the toothpaste and rinsed his mouth out


‘So what’s the plan?’


‘I’m going to get some more of my stuff packed up and get Felix ready. We can head out after breakfast.’


‘Is there anything else you want to do while we’re here? Visit friends?’


Mo Guan Shan considered that for a moment before shaking his head.


‘I’d rather just go home and get settled in.’


He Tian followed him out of the bathroom to help him pack.


‘Home it is, then.’


They ate breakfast and said their goodbyes.


He Tian was surprised when each member of the family hugged him warmly.


‘Come back and visit soon.’ Mo Guan Shan’s mom told them firmly.


‘We will.’ Mo Guan promised.


He Tian tried not to smile.


We, huh?


Mo Guan Shan loaded Felix into the car in his carrier.


He was nothing but a fluffy, ginger, ball of anger and claws.


Mo Guan Shan didn’t ask for the keys this time either.


He relaxed with every mile He Tian put between their car and the city.

‘Sorry about telling my mom that we’re together. She just looked so happy…’


‘It’s ok, really. She wants to know that you’re safe and taken care of. It’s understandable.’


Mo Guan Shan nodded.


‘Yeah, i suppose so. You’re not mad though?’


‘Not at all. Why would I be?’


‘Well…you haven’t been in a relationship for thirteen years and I just barge in and tell my parents that you’re my boyfriend. I don’t imagine anyone would like that.’


‘It doesn’t bother me.’ He Tian assured him.


‘Well, thank you.’


‘Any time.’


The redhead rolled his eyes with a small smile.


‘Really? Even Christmas?’


‘Sure.’


‘I…can’t tell if you’re kidding.’


‘I’m not. They seem really nice. I liked them a lot.’


‘Just be careful. They might get attached and we’ll have to get married.’ He teased.


He Tian laughed.


‘I can think of worse fates.’


There was a long pause.


‘I’m going to tell Jian Yi you said that.’


‘Oh lord, please don’t.’


They both smiled.


‘You seem like you’re feeling better.’ He Tian observed.’


‘I am.’ Mo Guan Shan admitted.


‘I’m glad.’


They spent the next few hours in silence, listening to music, lost in thought.


Mo Guan Shan broke the silence.


‘So, what’s up with them? Jian Yi and Zhan Zhengxi.’


‘What do you mean?’


‘Are they planning on getting married or anything? You said they’d been together for, like, a decade.’


‘Ok, I’m going to tell you something, but if you tell Jian Yi I will murder you.’


‘Jesus, I’m not sure if I even want to know now.’


‘Zhengxi has been planning to propose for over two years but hasn’t come up with the right way to do it.’


‘It’s not like he’s going to say no… right?’


‘Absolutely not. Zhengxi just feels like he has to make it special somehow, after all they’ve been through.’


‘Like what?’ Mo Guan Shan asked.


He Tian winced, realizing he’d said too much.


‘I’m…going to have to let Jian Yi tell you about that. I wouldn’t know about any of it if I hadn’t been around for it.’


‘Are you really going to build it up like that and not tell me?’


He Tian sighed.


He never really talked to anyone so he wasn’t used to censoring himself or keeping secrets.


‘You have to PROMISE me you won’t say anything. Ever.’


‘I promise.’


He Tian hesitated.


‘Zhengxi cheated on him a few years ago.’


‘Whoa.’


‘It wasn’t a huge thing, he didn’t sleep with her or anything-’


‘Her?’ Mo Guan Shan interrupted.


‘Yeah, that was the issue. Jian Yi is a remarkably understanding, forgiving person. But after so many years of Zhengxi telling him he was straight, it was pretty brutal.’


‘I can imagine.’


‘What ended up happening?’


‘Zhengxi stayed with me for almost three months. The girl, she was a friend of theirs, went to Jian Yi taking full responsibility. She was going through her own shit with some guy and said it was entirely her fault and Zhengxi had turned her down.’


‘And Jian Yi forgave him?’


‘Eventually, yeah. He said they should start fresh and let it go.’


‘What happened with the girl?’


‘She quit her job at The Wolf and none of us have heard from her since.’


‘What’s The Wolf?’


He Tian chuckled.


‘That’s my club. The Black Wolf.’


‘Oh…I’m sorry. I feel like I should know that.’


‘I doubt anyone has said the name. Everyone typically just says He Tian’s place.


‘It’s weird, I just realized I’ve never heard you say your own name before.’


He Tian thought about that.


‘I guess I don’t really say my name often. Does anyone?’


‘Probably not.’


‘You do it.’


‘Say your name?’


‘No, yours.’


‘…Mo Guan Shan.’


‘Ok, now mine.’


‘You want me to say your name?’


He Tian flushed.


‘Well, not now that you’ve made it weird.’


Mo Guan Shan laughed softly.


‘He Tian.’


The man in question smiled, his face still bright red.


‘Your turn.’


He Tian tried to clear his head.


‘Mo Guan Shan.’


‘I like your voice.’


‘Really?’


‘Really.’ Mo Guan Shan assured him.


‘No one’s ever told me that.’


‘Something tells me there’s a lot of nice things about you that no one’s ever told you about.’


‘Should I be offended by that?’


‘No. I can tell you what I like about you so far, if you want.’


‘You really don’t have to do that.’ He Tian said, tightening his hands on the steering wheel.’


‘But I really want to.’


‘Ok…’ He was expecting a few generic compliments.


‘I like the way your eyes sparkle when you smile.’


‘…thank you.’


‘And the way you squeeze my hand when you laugh.’


He Tian had no idea how to respond to these facts.


‘And the way you offer me a cigarette when you don’t want to smoke alone.’


‘…’


‘And the way you look away when you’re embarrassed.’


‘I-’


‘And the way you try not to smile when you’re lying.’


Shit.


‘When-’


‘And the way you turn someone away when they’re clearly drunk and being an idiot.’


‘…’


‘The way you’ll sleep on the floor because someone selfishly asks you to stay the night.’


‘Oh…um-’


‘You. I like you. I really, really, do.’


‘You shouldn’t.’ He Tian whispered.


‘Why not?’ Mo Guan Shan asked, defiant.


‘I have… a lot of baggage.’


‘I don’t care.’


‘You don’t understand.’


‘You’ve handled everything I’ve thrown at you so far.’


‘I guess…’


‘Let me do that for you.’


‘It’s different.’


‘I. Don’t. Care.’


‘But-’


He Tian, you drove me home. I could have stayed there. But I didn’t.’


‘Why didn’t you?’ He Tian asked.


‘If I don’t stick around and, at least, try to figure all this out, I’d hate myself.


‘You’re going to hate me, Mo Guan Shan.’


‘Why don’t you let me figure that out for myself.’


‘I’m not going to-’


‘I’m not asking you to fuck me.’


‘What are you asking me for?’ He Tian asked, honestly confused.


‘Give me a chance. Baggage and all.’


‘Do you want me to be your…’


‘I just want you to be with me while I sleep. Even if it’s on the floor.’


Mo Guan Shan’s confident words didn’t match the way his voice shook.


‘I can do that.’


‘Yeah?’


‘Yeah.’

anonymous asked:

Can we also talk about how Bakugou went from "weird haired guy" to "Kirishima. Change of plans". Oh man I didn't realize how much I missed the anime *cries*

BOI CAN’T WE I just spent the whole morning crying over seeing the moment Bakugou recognizes Kirishima as an equal animated nbd at all r i p me - I think this might be the first time Bakugou calls anyone by their name, actually, and I just!!! that’s because Bakugou heard Kirishima’s words and recognized him as a good partner and a worthy hero and someone whom he could respect and I’m gonna be grateful for chapter 133 for the insight on this for the rest of my always I !!!!!! have feelings g a h

Anon said: ok ok ok ok but but listen what about BAKGOU AND OCHAKO they are the most popular couple and the most cutest , i think you should try to draw them once i would love love to see this !!! of course just if you want hehe thanx

Ahhh sorry anon but I really don’t ship that - I mean, it’s true that I ship Bakugou with a bunch of people aside from my main two, but if they’re part of Deku’s group you can fairly assume they’re not between my Bakugou ships? And I only romantically ship Uraraka with Deku, Tsuyu and Iida anyway so! You’re probably not gonna see any romantic baku/ocha from me, sorry o<-<

Anon said: Since we know what Bakugou’s parents are like, what do you think Kirishima’s parents are like?

I have a similar ask somewhere asking about Kaminari’s parents as well, so I guess I’ll answer both here?? As a general rule I don’t really like making headcanons over stuff I’m sure the manga will give me in the future, so I can’t say I’ve thought about this too much - there are a few things I work under the assumption of while drawing, like for example I’m taking for granted they both have at least functional families, considering Aizawa personally visited their homes to ask their guardians about allowing them back to school, and if anything had been weird he would have noticed

I like to think Kaminari got his quirk straight from one of his two parents with no mixing happening, and got the Kaminari surname from them as well, but that’s all I ever allowed myself to settle on as far as Kami’s family goes, everything else changes based on what I need for the current scenario I’m thinking about… I do often end back on him being an only child, though - in the same way depending on how angst or lighthearted I want it to be my ideas for Kirishima’s family change a lot, but generally I think I mostly fall back on the idea of him having a big family? In a scenario like that his parents are kind and love him a lot, but having many children and needing to split their attention on all of them might cause them to overlook him a little (it would explain his obsession with being flashy, for me) then again, who knows? I don’t know how canon you can consider the infos SMASH gives, but in one of the strips Kiri mentions working part-time, and the fact that he doesn’t seem to have problems with money kinda makes me believe he might be independent from his family like that (unless he’s a rich kid, also very entertaining as a possiblity)

I’ve seen a lot of headcanons floating around about both of these guys’ families and possibly being related to villains, that would be cool too, though I’m not sure how much I believe it

I’m sorry this ended up being little to no useful at all lol as I said, I just shift between scenarios a lot - imagine settling on one and growing attached and then having to let it go once Hori proves it wrong, that’d be terrible for me

Types partying/drunk  [personal experience]

What types are like when drunk/partying based on what my real life friends with that type have said/done

ISTJ - says “he doesn’t really wanna drink tonight” and refuses to come out when invited, but then later texts, completely wasted, about how awesome drinking is and then adds the details of a programming task with a screenshot and three source files that he managed to finish (while absolutely buzzed), which was actually due 5 weeks later from then
ISFJ - *giggles after her first sip of wine* hehehhe I believe I am very wasted haha forgive me if I say something stupid hehheheh… Oh dear, I really shouldn’t have more of this.. I am so drunk hahaha this is so awkward I feel ashamed!! *was actually given alcohol-free wine* *i love you ISFJ you’re the cutest*
INFJ - *looks like a wasted sloth in a corner while everybody else is yelling, dancing and laughing and then grabs your arm after observing you for a while and quietly murmurs with a very creepy voice* I…seeeeee…you..  *tries to point at your nose but hits your cheek with her finger*
INTJ - disappears because he felt the need to go on a walk to stare at the stars and when he’s looked for and you ask “WHERE WERE YOU” or “WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE” he begins the sentence with “Did you know…” and becomes the Wikipedia of astrology
ISTP - sits quietly with his bottle of whiskey most of the time and doesn’t say or do much, and mostly leaves early, but when you actually take the time to sit next to him he may as well put his (absolutely fucking well developed) perv side on and go like “Hey, how would you perform blowjob on someone? My girlfriend is a newbie at this and I’m wondering if you have any tips.” with the straightest.face.ever. When you are like “WTFFF” he doesn’t understand what’s wrong and offers you whiskey. Then repeats the question.
ISFP - Very happy and clumsy, for example my mom pushed a vase off the table and when she tried to catch it, her foot got stuck in the laptop wire aaaand off the table went both vase and the laptop and my mum was on the floor along with both items, laughing at her misfortune and completely ignoring everyone and everything else. Total 100% from quiet sweet mom to YOLO when she’s drunk.
INFP - professes undying love/care to you, would never actually even mention it in the first place and it comes unexpected for you. Then decides it’s a great idea to walk off and disappear into crowds, leaving people wonder and worry where the heck he is and then of course forgets his phone in his friend’s purse and then noone can contact him about his whereabouts and everything’s fucked.
INTP - If he actually manages to come out and party instead of being drunk home alone as he usually prefers, he begins philosophical debate with everything that breathes (and always wins). Is usually the one who downs the most drinks but still looks as sober as before. Also super cute because he gets so drunk he dozes off on your lap and you can tell when he has sobered up a little because when he opens his eyes, his whole being freezes completely when he realises he’s on your lap (OH MY GOD HUMAN CONTACT). Bonus points for if you stroke his hair and hear his heart stop. (i fucking love intps)
ESTP - *to a very handsome tourist guy*  "What do you mean you wanna take me to your hotel? Lol thanks I’m flattered but like, I just wanted a drink and you got me one, soooo… sorry but you have served your purpose ok BYEEE" *turns around, grabs your arm and walks off calmly and confidently like nothing happened*
ESFP - all over the place, happy and manages to do a lot of stupid things, for example runs off alone while smashed at a beach party and then noone knows how the fuck she gets the idea to climb on top of the lifeguard tower, then falls off and breaks her pelvis and then has you all worried in the emergency department the whole night and then comes out laughing in a wheelchair and makes pelvis jokes and then spends the whole summer in bed but still has pelvis-themed parties where everyone makes jokes about it at her place.
ENFP - Full of fun, wants to play truth or dare every god damn time and manages to get all the kissing dares somehow so he ends up kissing everybody in the room (and liking it), then probably does it again with 6 new random people the next day. Even though with not many boundaries, still manages to be very caring and in control all the time and will bring glass after glass to make sure you drink plenty of water
ENTP - usually is fine for ages and makes jokes about others who are drunk BUT then just one fateful sip manages to turn her into a ridiculous jellyfish so you have to pretty much carry her around, hold her up on the bus, protect her not only from perverts but also very fatal things like roads for example, then take a taxi with her, tuck her in her bed and promise her she didn’t ruin the night about 23 times and she still won’t believe you before you agree to stay over for the night and watch cartoons with her
ESTJ - is usually quite disciplined when it comes to drinking but if drunk, she gets way more communicative and actually tells you her lifestory (which you are NOT allowed to mention afterwards when the alcohol fades) and flirts with the bartender and dances on tables and then suddenly with a snap of fingers she’s sitting on the nearest couch, looking half asleep and asking if there are any spare beds or sober drivers because she suddenly got tired of that shit
ESFJ - becomes a total full-on energy bunny and finds 8 new friends within a night and gets their contacts and has selfies with all of them. Already gets in awe with them without knowing them and makes 4 years worth of plans with them all included without them knowing. Will still remember them next day. Also a very amazing listener and definitely the shoulder to lean on because she will forget her own drunkness if you need to be taken care of.
ENFJ - (this is based on myself because I don’t know any other ENFJs in real life) *becomes an overly caring mom* YESSSSS OF COURSE I WILL BUY YOU THIS DRINK SWEETHEART hey actually *taps on other friend’s shoulder* would you like one too? *realises everyone has less money than her because they don’t work* No wait I will buy a round of shots for EVERYBODY! YES! GATHER AROUND ME FRIENDS. *next day, checks bank balance* Fuck. Ok next time I will NOT do that! *does it again next time*
ENTJ - centre of attention, becomes everyone’s favourite quickly because of his dark/sarcastic/well-fitted humour brought to everybody by his need to shine, doesn’t really hold back with drinks, is always the last one to leave a place because, for example, he gets so caught up with chatting about quantum theory and why he thinks it’s got flaws with the hosts of the party place who just stare at him with their mouth open, but since that gives him plenty of time to clean he always leaves the place nice and cleaned up after him and everybody else.

anonymous asked:

but if he didn't plan to stay a bit longer the whole story about the immigration lady would be made up and i don't believe that. the way i understood it was: he planned to stay for a few days, maybe with phil & martyn & cornelia. then when he realized he would have to go through the bahamas hassle he almost decided to just go home early but was "peer pressured" into staying and doing the bahamas thing and then in the end he stayed a lot longer than those planned few days

ok honestly my head hurts this shit is so confusing, but here’s what’s tripping me up. his visa was def stamped for him to have entry in the US on his work visa up till may 10. that’s a full three days after playlist. which means when he was first admitted to the US he def got approval to stay for those three days after. if that’s all he wanted to do, as he said in the video (just spend a few days chilling by the pool and working on his ‘rebrand’ or in other words going to miami with m/c and phil), then he should have had clearance to do that according to his own passport. and this is why so many ppl thought he would be leaving after miami so that phil and the lesters could do their normal vacay in orlando after that. 

so clearly the thing he struggled w approval for was the extension of his stay past may 10 and this is what necessitated his trip to the bahamas. but he didn’t rly say that in the video (though he did say in one of his skits that his friend’s family would be having a vacation that he wanted to tag along for, so that bit was more honest)? he made it sound like he jst wanted to stay for a few days of his own volition, in order to relax and finish work? but then his twitter replies allude to being peer pressured at some point to stay longer which is not mentioned anywhere in the video. 

all i’m rly saying here is that dan didn’t need to go to the bahamas just to stay for the miami trip (for the few days after playlist ended), even though that’s what he made it sound like in the video. he did need to go to the bahamas in order to get a visa for the two-week extension of his stay in orlando though, and based on his twitter reply the decision to stay for that long wasn’t entirely made on his own. 

Q&A with Simon D
  • Simon and you have been together for nearly 5 years and Simon has decided to do a short Q&A video with you. Simon has already tweeted out to his fans about the questions.
  • Simon: Hey everyone. Today [Y/N] and I will be answering questions from our fans.
  • You: What's the first question?
  • Simon: Someone's excited for this.
  • You: I only agreed to this because you promise you will let me choose what we eat tonight.
  • Simon: Shh I don't want our fans to know I bribed you into this. Ok, first question is where did you two go on your first date? Do you remember, babe?
  • You: Of course. But you always telling this story so you do it.
  • Simon: I asked her to dinner at my favourite restaurant, but after dinner I found out she doesn't like the place. [Y/N] asked me what I had plan next, I told her I was planning to go to the movies. She disagreed and we went to a bowling place after.
  • You: Dinner and a movie is boring babe. Sorry. But you had fun at the bowling place right?
  • Simon: Yeah it was fun. Here, read the next question.
  • You: What are your thoughts the first time meeting each other?
  • Simon: We actually met a club. It was an after party for some show. I was sitting in the VIP section and I saw her dancing from across the room. I thought wow that girl CANNOT dance.
  • You: Hey!
  • Simon: I'm just joking. But yeah, my first thought was wow she is so sexy so I got up and asked for her name.
  • You: Yeah, I remember seeing this guy who's wearing a grey GUCCI sweatshirt walking up to me and I thought, who in their right mind wears a sweatshirt to a club. Like it's so hot and stuffy in there. Then my second thought was he probably smells because I could see his sweat.
  • Simon: And do I smell?
  • You: Sometimes.
  • Simon: So [Y/N] what is the most romantic thing that I have done?
  • You: Hmm, for our one year anniversary we celebrated it at home. I had a long day at work and I told him I was fine with some take-out but this guy here surprised me. He made dinner, put rose petals on the bed and candles were everywhere.
  • Simon: I have many romantic things and you choose that one?
  • You: Yeah but I think that's the most romantic. Next question.
  • Simon: What are each other’s worst or annoying habits? [Y/N]'s most annoying habit is buying so many clothes and not wearing them. Some clothes in her closet still has tags on them. And when we go out she says she doesn't have anything to wear so I tell her to wear the clothes she bought a month ago. And when we are ready to go out, I would think she's wearing the new clothes but she wears her old clothes. Her clothes are taking up my side of the closet.
  • You: Whatever. You should buy another closet for yourself then. And don't forget you sometimes kick the blanket off the bed when we're sleeping. I'm always getting up and picking the blanket up. Learn how to keep the blanket ON the bed and I'll try to stop buying so much clothes.
  • Simon: Okay okay, I'll try. So the next question is what is your ideal date night?
  • You: I don't think we do a lot of date nights, right babe?
  • Simon: No, we don't. We prefer having lunch together.
  • You: Yeah, lunches, breakfast or brunches. We prefer spending the day together. But also, Simon sleeps super early. He gets into bed around 8:30pm. What old men do.
  • Simon: Hey! I'm not old.
  • You: Whatever you want to believe. Hmm the next question from this fan is a little out of the blue.
  • Simon: What is it?
  • You: Are there any weird fantasies/kinks that you have or into?
  • Simon: Weird fantasies or kinks? We don't have weird kinks.
  • You: Omg Simon. You just implied we have weird fantasies. I don't want to answer this one. I'm going to get a drink.
  • Simon: No, no sit down. You're staying right here babe.
  • You: I'm just going to cover my face then.
  • Simon: I won't go into too much detail or give our fans too much information. Actually I'll just say it in three words. Ready? Ok, toys and accessories.
  • You: Omg you did not just say accessories. What is that suppose to mean?
  • Simon: I told you, I'm not saying anything more. And baby, you should know what the accessories are..
  • You: Let's move on.
  • Simon: Okay last question, do you two have any funny, embarrassing sex stories? Wow our fans are something hey?
  • You: Haha yeah. I know one embarrassing story. Can I tell it?
  • Simon: Are you talking about the one with the phone call?
  • You: YES! Ok so we were at home and in the middle of 'it' , well actually we were both 'nearly there', when Simon's phone rings. The phone was on the bedside table and I asked Simon if he needed to get that. He shook his head and all that came out of his mouth was "Jay, Jay, Jay". Now imagine, you and your partner having the time of your life, you know, and your partner decides to call out his work mate's name when you're about close. It was so weird, yet extremely funny. Oh and if you didn't guess, the person who called him was Jay.
  • Simon: Please stop talking now and I'm surprised you could actually ask me a question when you're in the zone babe. Kudos.
  • You: I didn't say the exact words. I muttered, gosh. Anyway can I tell them what I told Jay the next day.
  • Simon: Aww, do you have too?
  • You: Yes. The fans deserves the whole story. So the next day, we saw Jay at the office and I blurted out what happened. I said to Jay, "my boyfriend busted a nut to you".
  • Simon: Okay okay. No more discussing this story and let's end this Q&A. You've gone too far babe.
  • You: Fine. And we're having ramen and dumplings tonight.

anonymous asked:

Ok. So, to find out when the game itself takes place, you've gotta know when the studio was open. At first, I assumed that Bendy was a rubberhose toon from the height of that style of cartoons. That would put their timeline between 1925 and 1935. Since Sammy recognized Henry but Henry didn't know about the studio extensions in the basement, Henry would have had to leave the studio sometime around 1928. However, Henry also wasn't around for the instillation of the ink machine,… (Mo 1)

(2) which Sammy said was build “over their heads”. So Sammy was either: 1.) downstairs when the ink machine was built, or 2.) the tape recorder was moved downstairs. We also know from Wally’s recordings that Joey had “everyone” donate something from their workstations, so the employees at that time were pretty few. Each item can probably be associated with a specific person; the book is Joey’s the record Sammy’s, and I imagine the doll belinged to the guy who did toys. (Mo)

(3) But based on how small the company was at the time (and modelling it off Disney’s early years) I can’t imagine Henry wasn’t working there at that time; in fact, the inkwell could be his. So where’s the overlap, and how did Joey publish a book if the company was that small? Demonic hijinks definitely accounts for some of it, but the timing is weird. If (basing this assumption off Wally’s first recording) the ink machine was put up very soon after the pedestals, … (Mo)

(4) then it’s possible Henry left between the pedestals and the ink machine. That still doesn’t leave a lot of time for Henry knowing and being super close to all his coworkers, but it works. UNTIL I saw someone notice the “Buy Bonds” mark I hadn’t seen before on one of the episode posters. When I researched, I couldn’t find any examples of cartoon propaganda in WWI. WWII, however, is well known for it. Now we’d have to rework what we already figured out for a new timeperiod. (Mo)

(5) First off, why would this studio still be using rubberhose-style animation long after it had gone out of style? They probably started the studio right before rubberhose went out, and wouldn’t or couldn’t update it. That puts them starting the studio in the 1934-1935 range. That’s good, because it gives plenty of time between the founding to when it went mad. Wally said that the animations weren’t being finished on time anymore, which means they had a time schedule. (Mo)

(6?) A time schedule like that would probably be imposed by a distributer. At this time, probably the studio was doing a lot of work for the government and military and being funded by them (hence “Buy Bonds”). This is probably about the time that Joey really stopped caring about the actual animations. The extensions probably also happened around then. So when did Henry leave the studio? Probably right before the studio was doing animations for the military. (Mo)

(7) At that time, Joey was probably already starting to slip. There were probably already plans for an extension to the studio, and rudimentary plans for the ink machine. This would’ve been about 1940-1941. Henry would have been really familiar with everyone there, maybe to the point of leaving behind a keepsake that could later be used for the pedestals. The extensions are built, the ink machine installed, more employees hired, and the studio went under probably late 40’s. (Mo)

(8; last one, promise!) Whether the studio went under because of money or demonic issues is up for interpretation. So, assuming that demonic stuff means that Henry went back exactly 30 years after he left the studio, the game may take place in 1970 or 1971. All of that is, of course, a guess. I’ve found it fun to try to connect the game to the actuall history of animation. I guess only time and new chapters will reveal what really happened! Thanks for letting me do this. -Mo💚

Dang when you said it was the length of a novel you weren’t kidding.

Anyways, let’s try and go through this one thing at a time.

Hi guys! I recently marathoned Black Sails and i loved it! the only thing I'm sad about is that i didn't watch it in real time... I don't care if my ship is cannon, but I found that seeing it all at once means i know what happened to everyone, and I'm having a hard time shutting it off. I want to be into it, bc there are so many characters and ships i like in BS, but i don't know how to make the story feel open for exploration. any ideas or thoughts on how to incept myself into BS fandom?

Hello! Of course Elizabeth is answering this. This is a GREAT ASK, thank you, and not just because the entry point to this question is Black Sails ⚓⚓⚓. 

(I’ll have you know this is one of, like, three gifs of Flint smiling in the entire series. I also googled “Black Sails happy” and…no one looked happy.)

OK so it seems like there are a few things going on here. Apologies for taking what’s ostensibly about one show and turning it into something broader, but I think it gets at fundamental questions of fannish engagement, so I’M GOING IN.

1) Watching/reading a series all at once 

Flourish and I talk about this one a lot, because we (and many others) have observed that younger/newer Harry Potter fans approach characters and plot elements VERY differently than we do, and we chalk a lot of this up to reading the books as a complete text versus reading it with miserable long gaps in which to turn over every freakin detail only to have 75% of it jossed when the next book came out. In 2002 I legit read this one page of Dumbledore dialogue in GoF 100 times thinking there was a clue that was just…under…the surface.

I think that with some texts and with some fans, the serialized nature of TV and book series are the way in—we climb into those gaps and lingering there, waiting and obsessively turning things over and imagining all the branching possibilities, all the future reveals, all the resolutions, is part of the pleasure. I sure as hell wouldn’t have fallen for Sherlock if I hadn’t shown up to poke at the gaping emotional wound between s2 and s3. (Frankly if you showed me all four seasons at once I’m not sure I’d even like the show—my lingering emotional loyalty was the only thing that kept me saying anything nice about s4.) 

If I had not watched Black Sails all in one go it would have been LITERAL TORTURE FOR ME. I had to pause for a week while traveling and I started to read fic that actually spoiled parts of the fourth season WHOOPS. :-/// But I can also understand how watching it all in one go wouldn’t give you enough space. But then, we watched the same way and I am deep in it, plotting out fic and everything. So maybe… 

2) A complete text can stay with you but might not give you a way in

This happens to me with books *all the time*. I’ll read something that shakes me—I’ve often used the metaphor “knocks your world off its axis” when describing a really great book, like it can be the subtlest tilt and you’ll feel like everything’s changed. I think it’s pretty normal for texts to stay with you? If they’re good or if they touch you in some specific way? Especially if you’re fannish and really feel the media you’re consuming.

But one thing I often find about books is they’re more…complete. Even when television shows end properly, rather than being cancelled, they might stretch for longer than what was initially planned, for example, so it doesn’t feel like the arc of the plot was as carefully constructed—often it can’t be, especially with long-running American shows (and of course with classic episodic television, say, a monster-of-the-week show, it’s not even structurally designed to have the same sort of ~ABCDE structure as a novel might). 

Black Sails is not one of those shows—they knew they were bringing the story to a close, and the entire show rests on carefully-plotted narrative arcs. (Not to mention there was an actual ~canonical endpoint for all the Treasure Island characters, ie where the book begins (like, sort of). I mean, there were also canonical endpoints for Jack, Anne, Vane, Blackbeard, Hornigold, and every other historical figure, but…)

Over the years I’ve joined fandoms for WIPs as well as finished products, and often for me fandom’s been a way of trying to mend the wounds of a media property I found incomplete, either narratively (with bad writing) or literally (like, when a show ends abruptly). I think for some fans, this is a crucial piece—they say that when they find something too complete, there’s nothing to mend. 

3) Different modes of fannish engagement

So here’s another thing I’ve observed—different friends have different definitions of “fandom.” So people are like, “Oh yeah, I’m in the fandom, I love that show!” And I find out that means they enjoy the show and livetweet it and look at some gifs and that’s that. Which is totally fandom! And then there’s me, nodding nervously as I debate mentioning that, “Oh yeah, I’m in the fandom, I love that show!” for me means “THIS IS THE ONLY THING I WANT TO THINK ABOUT, HELP ME, I AM DROWNING.” It’s funny, sometimes I think about archetypal nerdboy fandom and its dick-measuring fact recitation, and then I think about all the times I tried to read the room to see if it was safe to let another person know how much I thought about something I loved, how much I felt about it. Even in totally fannish spaces, I still hesitate. :-/

There have been some things in the past few years that I’ve really enjoyed and toyed with checking out fandoms for, but what I’ve come to realize over the years is for me, it needs to be like falling in love. I think for some people, interest and obsession grows, and for others, you fall in head-first. And for others still, it depends on the thing. 

I understand this ask might have been specifically looking for resources or suggestions and while I’d just say if you’re not feeling it in this way, that’s cool, there are lots of different ways to fan, and you can keep thinking about something even if you aren’t drawn to, say, create transformative works about it? But maybe I should say something about Black Sails in particular…

4) Black Sails-specific: unreliable narrators and transformative works

If anyone hasn’t finished Black Sails, stop reading here, I’ll keep it vague but there’s only so much I can do. This is one thing that’s especially interesting to me about this ask: while I’m going on about how final and precisely plotted it all was, it’s not…that final. Because the entire point of the show is about narrative, right? Who gets to write them, who gets to own them, how they can be manipulated, how they shape “civilization.” Characters constantly talk—and constantly show—how both Flint and Silver (and, like, most of the characters, from Max to Thomas to Vane to Woodes Rogers) are these masterful shapers of narrative. Flint is the victim of clashing narratives: what’s actually happened to him, what he tells the world he’s doing, what he’s actually doing (note that explosive scene when Miranda calls him on this, ahhh I love Miranda). But the show’s choice to shift to Silver’s narration to wrap up events is a really fascinating one: the man who works so hard to obscure his past, laying out the narratives of the future. Should we believe him? 

I recommend this interview with creators Johnathan Steinberg and Robert Levine—the Flint section at the start is really delightful if you’re into artists being super into open-interpretation of their work. “Do we have a sense of what we imagine is happening?” Steinberg says when asked if we should believe Silver’s speech to Madi. “Yes, but if I was someone else, I wouldn’t want to watch it with my interpretation coloring it.” They talk about how this is essentially a transformative work (they don’t use that term)—a certain decision “made sense as a way to both acknowledge the book and spin it.”

So this is like the literal opposite of, say, JK Rowling, who seems intent on letting us know every freakin detail of canon and post-canon and seems genuinely unhappy at the idea that people will interpret things in ways that “aren’t true.” (At least in interviews I’ve seen/read of hers in the past few years.) Steinberg and Levine seem to be the ultimate “open to interpretation” guys, which really is like this big blank slate for fandom building on and playing with this world they’ve created. That being said, if oppositional fandom is your cup of tea—if you love fic and fandom as a corrective, as a way of wrestling a creator over the text—then the, “Go for it, interpret however you want” thing is probably not super appealing. 

This is the first time in my entire fandom life, going on two decades now, that I have simultaneously been really satisfied with a show’s ending and still wanted to write and read fic. And that seems…weird to me? So I don’t think it’s that weird that it wouldn’t work for someone. TL;DR: I’d just say if it happens, it happens. But it’s OK to love something and not find a way into the fandom. But if that changes for you, I’ll be there. :-)

12. The Water Bender’s Baby


Katara places her daughter with the woman. She visits her often under the claim that she is the baby’s God Mother.

Katara helps at the hospital, she works as a healer. But she also teaches the new water benders that are appearing in the south.

Sokka leaves the Southern Water Tribe to go to Republic City as an emissary. According to Sokka’s letters, Aang and Zuko are working together to create a city of unity, where benders of any kind can live together with non-benders. The thought of Aang and Zuko working together makes Katara’s stomach churn.

As the Southern Water Tribe grows, it becomes a flourish of life, but with life comes danger, thieves and thugs, Katara joins the police force, helping take care of crime in the south.

But then another threat comes, a group rally, hell bent on taking out Katara’s father. Katara tries her best to take the rebels down but they aren’t enough, this group is large and not even the entire police force can take them down.

One summer morning, two years after Senna’s birth, Katara walks through the tribe with her ‘god daughter’ buying presents when suddenly a large sky bison lands in the middle of the tribe, Katara’s heart kicks into over drive.

Katara races back to Senna’s guardian’s house and drops her off, she kisses her daughter good-bye and then makes her way back to her father’s council room. Appa is standing right outside, huffing and snuffing around the snow.

When the sky bison sees Katara he bellows out and races over to her.

“Appa!” Katara beams, patting the bison on the nose, “I’ve missed you too.”

“Katara?” a voice calls, Katara turning to the council hut and she sees Aang standing in the door way.

She is amazed at the difference just two years can make, Aang is taller, taller than her; he even towers over Sokka. He looks grown up, his face more mature and his body, well, Aang only wears his usual light air bender clothes, and they do nothing to hide the muscles underneath.

“Avatar Aang,” Katara breathes, continuing to pat Appa as Aang approaches her, “It’s good to see you.”

“It’s been so long,” Aang breathes, standing in front of Katara, his voice has changed too, deeper and more masculine.

Aang and Katara both laugh before embracing each other.

“I’ve missed you,” he breathes, holding Katara closely.

Katara smiles and then looks over Aang’s shoulder to the door he came out of, secretly wishing, hoping that Zuko would come through those doors too.

“What are you doing here?” Katara asks when Aang lets her go.

“Sokka told me about your letters,” Aang explains, “I’m here to help, in any way that I can.”

“Thank you,” Katara says, she follows Aang into the council room and they discuss plans to get the group.

Katara works with Aang and Sokka, they find the gang’s hide out, and in one night they take the gang down.

Once the fight is over, it doesn’t take long with Aang by their side, by the time the sun sets the gang are behind bars.

“It was good to work with you again,” Aang says once the men are safely behind bars.

“It was,” Katara agrees, dusting off her hands and then turns away.

“Katara,” Aang says, stopping Katara before she can walk away, “I’m really sorry, for… well for how things ended with us. It just wasn’t the right time for us, I put too much pressure on you, and I’m sorry.”

Katara turns back to face Aang and he is standing in front of her sheepishly, his cheeks red.

“I’ve missed you,” Aang says, his words flying out almost breathlessly, “more than I could ever begin to say, I’ve missed you Katara.”

Katara’s heart skips a beat, she stares at Aang as he shifts on his feet.

“I want to be friends again,” Aang says, his hands jittery.

“We will always be friends, Aang,” Katara smiles, “That could never change.”

Aang smiles and blushes deep red.

“Did you want to get lunch together?” Aang asks, Katara nods her head.

“Just no sea prunes, ok?” Aang asks, making Katara laugh.

Katara and Aang spend a lot of time together over the coming months, Aang doesn’t leave the Water Tribe for three whole months, he spends as much time with Katara as he can.

Katara fills the gaping hole in her heart with Aang, he doesn’t fit the hole, it’s not a hole he’ll ever be able to fill.

Aang has changed, he’s not the same selfish, little boy from all those years ago, he’s matured and in doing so he isn’t as controlling, he gives Katara her space, he acts like her friend, not as an unrequited lover.

Katara continues to visit her ‘god child’, Aang wants to go with her, but Katara will never let him, lest he see the gold in her eyes, or how every day, Senna, grows to look more and more like her mother, her real mother.

When Aang leaves to return to the ever growing Republic city, Katara feels lost. She loves Zuko and will forever love him, but she cannot have him. She can have Aang, he cares for her and her family, but she does not love him.

When Aang is away he writes to Katara every day, telling her everything he has done, often Zuko’s name appears in the letters and it makes Katara’s heart pound in anticipation, she wants to know that Zuko is alright, that he is happy. According to Aang’s letters, Zuko seems happy, even though Mai is having troubles conceiving.

Katara has written thousands of letters to Zuko, but she never sends them. She ties them with a red and gold ribbon and hides them away where no one will find them. Should someone ever find them, Katara would be in a world of trouble; each letter details her love for Zuko, each letter mentions the baby she had with him. Katara knows she shouldn’t be writing her feelings down on paper, but she cannot bring herself to burn them.

Aang returns to the Water Tribe two months after leaving, when he sees Katara he races to her, picks her up and spins her around, when he sets her back down he places a kiss to the corner of her mouth.

“I’ve missed you.” He breathes, looking at Katara with such adoration.

“I’ve missed you too,” Katara replies, her voice shaky and in shock from the kiss.

“Katara these last few weeks without you have been torture,” Aang admits, holding Katara’s hands, “I want to be with you again, like how it was before, as more than friends.”

Katara’s heart races, she stares into Aang’s grey eyes, wishing they were gold instead. Katara hates herself, but she wasn’t lying when she said that she had missed Aang. When she read the letter that he was coming home, Katara’s heart raced with excitement.
Katara found herself wanting Aang, perhaps not in the way that he wanted her, but she did want him, for comfort.

“Katara,” Aang breathes, “I want to come home, to you, I need you in my life. Since you left it has never been the same alone as it was with you. I know I screwed up, I was selfish and childish, and I can never undo what I did to you. All I ask is for one chance.”

Katara finds herself nodding her head, a great, big smile spreads over Aang’s face as he lifts her into his arms again and takes her back to her place.

They kiss and hold each other, Katara lays with Aang to force Zuko out of her mind, to force away what cannot be.

Aang moves in with Katara quickly, he comes and goes from the Water Tribe always returning to fall into Katara’s arms.

Katara’s plan works, she falls for Aang, she loves him and he loves her. But when the make love it is always simple, always in missionary, Katara tries for more, but Aang is not comfortable with it, leaving Katara unsatisfied every time.

But Katara doesn’t base their relationship on sex, she has feelings for Aang, she loves him and he loves her.

He proposes, one year after returning to her, he gets down on his knee and presents her with a silver ring. Katara says yes, she agrees to marry the Avatar, because she does love him.

Aang and Katara are married two months after the engagement.

When the doors open to the wedding chapel Katara’s heart races, for at the end of the aisle stands the man she truly loves. However, he stands next to her intended as his best man.

I’m having some really bad insomnia and its almost 2, sooo I decided to write some Luke Skywalker headcanons because why not? Hope you guys enjoy! (oh and this wasn’t requested, I just got a stroke of inspiration, I guess.)

  • Being friends before you fall in love with each other
  • Being Luke’s voice of reason
    • ‘No, Luke, you are not teaching that shady guy how to wield your lightsaber.’
  • Because Luke is too much of a nice person that he wants to help everyone
  • Sometimes, however, he just wants to be dramatic and it may not be a great idea
    • ‘Luke, can’t you just tell Han the plan. The poor man’s blind and thinks he’s going to be slowly digested.’
    • ‘But that would ruin the plan, (Y/n).’
    • ‘Luke!’
  • Another example
    • ‘You train with Yoda for one day and you think you can take on the Empire. I swear-’
    • ‘Don’t worry about me, (Y/n).’
    • You groaning and worrying and ranting
    • Luke hugging you and kissing you on the forehead
    • You rolling your eyes
    • ‘You know you love me, (Y/n).’
    • ‘Unfortunately, I do.’
    • ‘Yeah… What do you mean by unfortunately? (Y/n)!
  • Luke trusting you with everything, including your friends
  • ‘Promise me you’ll take care of them.’
    • ‘Promise me to come back in one piece.’
    • ‘I promise.’
  • When he first comes back from Vader you are so mad at him
    • ‘I said one piece, idiot!’
    • Cue hugs and tears and kisses on foreheads
  • Luke teaching you how to use a lightsaber
    • ‘Luke, I’m not a Jedi. I don’t need to learn.’
    • ‘Just in case then.’
    • ‘Can’t I just learn how to use a knife or gun or something.’
    • ‘No. ‘
    • ‘Why not?’
    • ‘Because, I can’t teach you how to use a knife or gun.’
    • ‘Aw, Luke! … I’m going to see if Han will teach me how to use a gun.’
    • ‘What? (Y/n) wait!’
  • Luke realized his feelings first, and he was utterly terrified
  • Because Luke had faced monsters, entire fleets of Empire generals, and Darth Vader himself, but knowing he liked, or maybe even loved, you was scarier than any battle he had ever been a part of
  • Luke blushing and wanting to spend more and more time with you
  • Then he realizes that there’s a Jedi Code, and he’s devastated. He wants to be with you and protect you and do everything in his power to make you happy, but how could he if there was a rule against it?
  • Luke starting to avoid you and training even more intensely
  • You realize that you like, maybe even love Luke, at that point
  • Leia finds out her suspicions are correct from her brother and is ecstatic
  • Han finds out from Leia and tries to get you to admit your feelings while Leia does the same with her brother
  • Artoo casually mentions that Luke and you are together to every droid that he ever comes across
  • Threepio is astounded Master Luke would dare go against the Jedi Code and tries to convince Master Luke to do otherwise
    • ‘I know that (y/n) is attractive for her species, clever as a thief, and kind as you are, but that doesn’t mean… Master Luke? Master Luke, stop staring at (Y/n) this instant!’
    • yeah it doesn’t work in Threepio’s favor
  • Lando accidentally told both of you while discussing plans for dinner for the entire gang He totally planned blurting it out with Han and Leia those little-
  • Luke running out of the room and out of the facility into the wilderness
  • You running after him
  • Because you’re not as athletically inclined as a frickin Jedi Master, you trip
  • Luke, of course, senses it and comes rushes back to your aid and constantly asks if you broke a bone of something
  • You staring at him like ‘dude, I just tripped.’
  • Luke blaming himself for you tripping and helping you back inside and rambling about how you shouldn’t do that
  • You telling Luke it’s not his fault at all, but he’s not listening because he should’ve known you’d follow him and he should’ve known it would’ve been dangerous and he really doesn’t want you hurt and he would never-
  • Then, you kissed him
  • And it was messy and awkward and short, but when you pulled away, Luke leaned towards you without him noticing and ends up kissing the tip of your nose
  • Cue an embarrassed and awkward lil Luke Skywalker
  • Both of you start to laugh and bond even more than before and because Luke is too shy and innocent to ask, you ask
  • ‘Luke?’
  • ‘Everything ok?’
  • ‘Of course. I just… do you want to be, I don’t know, together? Officially?’
  • Luke being absolutely stunned and his face just slowly transforming into a bright smile before he kisses you again and again and again
  • Luke has an entire day where he acts like he’s on top of the world
    • Think of that one moment when Leia kissed him to make Han jealous and Luke smiled smugly and put his hands behind his head
    • Yeah take that and intensify it by 100 and imagine that being Luke’s mood for at least 24 hours
  • Then, Luke comes crashing down when he remembers the Jedi Code
  • He leaves with no reason other than he has some mission
  • You asked others on base about it but… Luke wasn’t assigned on a mission
  • Leia being very mad at Luke
  • Han trying to contact Luke for Leia to yell at him
    • Han is also planning on punching Luke when he gets back
  • Lando comforting you while you are trying to stop thinking about him
  • After a few days of no contact from Luke, you are sick and tired of it. You want to get over him, so you constantly train
  • A few more days pass since you’ve been constantly training, and Luke is back
  • He ignores Han’s punches, Leia’s yells, Lando’s questions, Artoo’s list of reasons to go to you, and Threepio’s worries
  • Luke goes straight to you
  • You are ignoring him
  • ‘(Y/n), please, I’m-’
  • ‘Please, leave. I’m training.’
  • ‘(Y/n), I’m trying to apologize!’
  • ‘I don’t care, Luke. You can’t do that! You can’t just leave me after that!’
  • ‘And I was stupid to do so, I know. I know, and I want to apologize for it.’
  • ‘Sure, so you can just go off again at any moment’s notice? Without any mission or reason!’
  • ‘I was scared, (Y/n)!’
  • ‘Sure you were.’
  • ‘What if they take you from me?’
  • ‘Who? Sith Lords? Luke, you taught me how to use a lightsaber. I’ve been fighting since I could even remember and-’
  • ‘No, I mean the Jedi.’
  • You’re very confused at that point
  • Then, you realize what he’s talking about
  • ‘What if I’m with you and they force us apart, and I can’t do anything about it? What if we try fighting it and going against it just to have you taken away and I would be powerless to do anything? How am I supposed to cope knowing that loving you could… ruin you? You’re my best friend. I’m not losing you. I don’t want to lose you, and I don’t want to ruin your life just by loving you.’
  • You shaking your head slightly
  • ‘Luke, you almost did after that stunt you pulled.’
  • Him being ashamed and not wanting to say much else except
  • ‘I’m sorry, (Y/n).’
  • ‘Luke… do you want to be with me?’
  • ‘More than anything.’
  • ‘Then, let’s fight it.’
  • ‘I can’t ask you to do that.’
  • ‘I want to do it.’
  • And as Luke stares into your eyes, he could see how passionate you were and how utterly breathtaking you looked and he couldn’t help it
  • ‘I love you, (Y/n).’
  • You playfully shoving him
  • ‘You’re an idiot, Skywalker.’
  • Him laughing lightly and awkwardly
  • ‘I love you, too, Luke.’
  • Luke freezing as his mouth grows into a beautiful smile and the two of you laugh and celebrate
  • Both of you hear Lando and Leia celebrating (Han thought you would forgive him after 24 hours and lost a bet to the two of them)
  • You immediately let go of each other and steal glances while the three make sure neither of you will hurt the other ever again
  • Luke and you facing the Jedi Council together
  • The two of you are looked at weirdly, even though the two of you act mostly like how you two acted before
  • Just a few more private walks around the base, maybe holding hands maybe not
  • A few more tickle fights and forehead kisses from luke and cheek kisses from you
  • The only times Luke and you kiss publicly is when one comes back from a mission
  • Even then, they’re short kisses followed by long, warm hugs
  • The two of you fight sometimes, but it’s pretty rare
  • The longest Luke and you had been in a fight was about a week (Han and Leia won that bet)
  • That fight was about the fact that you didn’t tell Luke about the severity of your mission and Luke had to find out from someone else that there was a big chance of you not coming back
  • The two of you agreed to be honest after that
  • Fight between you two never went longer than a day after that
  • You two would miss each other too much
  • You two are too in love… no fair you guys
  • Basically, Luke and you would have such a slow burn relationship that drives everyone mad and when you get together, no one can top how sweet and gentle the two of you are to each other. It would be so full of genuine trust and love, that everyone would be so jealous of the two of you. But they’d also aw and bet and fangirl over the two of you
  • Hell, i’m fangirling over the two of you

It is now very well past 2 AM at this point, so I need to stop myself. Anyway, uh, yeah, just something I thought of.. It took a while too. I started when it was nearing 2 AM. This was kinda a spontaneous thing, and I don’t think I could do requests for it… but yeah. I got inspired I guess. Anyway, yeah, hope you guys enjoy!

Spin the bottle
  • (The ladies of the school staff usually gather together in a spot of the cafeteria, taking a break and chat.)
  • Edith: (just arrive with a empty ketchup) Can you belive this? The kids where playing spin the bottle again...
  • Groundskeeper Lou: Oooh...
  • Nurse Offstill: Then ther would be "some boys" pretending to dying... (she chuckled)
  • Groundskeeper Lou: Hey... (she took the bottle) We have thirty minutes. How about if we play a little?
  • Edith: What?
  • Nurse Offstill: We are not kids, Lou... This is--(then Lou spins the bottle)--- Oh come on... (It pointed at her)
  • Groundskeeper Lou: (smiled slyly) So? Truth or dare?
  • Nurse Offstill: Huh... Truth?
  • Groundskeeper Lou: Ok ok... If you could send someone to Mars, and I mean an only one way travel, who would be?
  • Nurse Offstill: My mother.
  • Groundskeeper Lou: Can mine join in too? (The three laughed)
  • Nurse Offstill: Ahaha... This is actually fun. My turn!(she spins the bottle... It pointed at Geroge Bearb who was walking by with his friend.) I'll spin again...
  • Harold: It that the bottle game?
  • George: No, no... I wanna play too! I choose dare!
  • Nurse Offstill: Ok... I dare you to not laugh for a whole minute.
  • Groundskeeper Lou: (chromotizing her watch) Starting now!
  • (MEanwhile, Mr. Krupp start to hear some laughing coming from the cafeteria. He knew that the source os this sound would be the two pranskters, so he went straight to the door.)
  • (George was almost loose it, Harold was tellig him to not give up)
  • Groundskeeper Lou: Three... Two... One... You win!
  • George: (the grouchy face he was making was gone and he exploded of giggles) Oh man... Being serious is so hard!(he then reached to the bottle of the table and spin it. It was now pointing at the groundskeeper.)
  • Groundskeeper Lou: Ok, George. I say dare.
  • George: (Harold whispered an idea to his ear and the both smiled widely) Groundskeeper Lou, this is the dare: show us what's under your cap!
  • Harold: And that includes untie the braid.
  • (*Inserting The Good, the Bad and the Ugly theme* The woman slowly get up of the chair. That presence made many of the students pay attantion. They saw the woman's fingers removing the ponytail holder, letting the gravity drop the purple thingy to the table, bouncing once. And when she removed the green hat... It was like a shiny bay explosion that was turning into a sea. The hair was long and with curls, the shake of the head made it look like a shampoo ad; it finally got down making the groundskeeper like another woman.)
  • Edith: Oh my gosh... What a mane!
  • Groundskeeper Lou: Yeah, I know. (she noticied that George and Harold, also every kid, and even some teachers where starring at her with the jaws drop) Shut the mouths people, or the flys will get inside. (many of them did it. Then, when she spin the bottle...) And now the bottle says its...(it stopped) Edith!
  • Edith: Oh... Hu... Ok... Huh... Truth?
  • (Krupp see the three woman having fun with the kids and walked to end it, about to talk at a long haired woman's back... But)
  • Groundskeeper Lou: Have you or do you plan to kiss Mr. Krupp?
  • (A slow "ooooooooooohhhhhhh" filled the cafeteria. The pricipal was frozen, and Edith started to blush; she could see the face of the men she loved.)
  • Edith: Huh... (she was about to say it...) I... Hu... (an eye movement made the hint that there was smeone behind.
  • (The women get up as they saw the principal.)
  • Nurse Offstill: I think there's a sick boy in my office... (she leaves fast)(the kids was leaving too)
  • Mr. Krupp: (his stuned face moved at the groundskeeper... Who didn't seems like he reconise her) Who are you?
  • Groundskeeper Lou: (high pitched voice) Con permiso... (she ran off)

new-recipe  asked:

(secret crush) ok the boys sleeping in the tent one night and everything is fine until Prompto wakes up. He rolls over towards Ignis who is still sound asleep and leans down to sneak a peck on their cheeks… but right when he’s about to kiss, Ignis stirs slightly and Prom accidentally kisses his lips instead. Would Ignis have felt it? If he didn't, would Prom be able to calm down?

big gay awakening (or the fallout, as it were) promnis


It was 3:30 in the morning, exactly eight days after they set out from Insomnia, that Prompto realized that maybe there was a tiny little possibility that he was gay. Or maybe bi. He didn’t really know how these things went. 

Okay, it wasn’t like the possibility hadn’t occurred to him before. He wasn’t dumb–he and Noctis had had far too many sleepovers where they coincidentally ended up in the same bed, or sharing the same blanket on the couch while Noct fell asleep on his shoulder. He wasn’t prepared for the Prince of Lucis to be his b-b-boy-

For two months he couldn’t even bring himself to think the whole word through. But then he was going on a grand coming-of-age road trip with Noct and his other two friends and the end goal was to get Noctis hitched. So he was a little relieved, that they never tried to be more than friends, that was. Dealing with heartbreak before he’d even come to terms with the idea…yeah, that was no good. 

Ignis, though. 

Ignis was not off limits. 

Ignis was perfect. He was everything Prompto wanted in a friend, or…more. He was kind and patient and cunning and calming and really, really pretty, if Prompto was being honest with himself. Beautiful, even.

And Prompto couldn’t help himself. His cheeks just looked so…so soft. Just a little touch wouldn’t hurt anyone, right? A little touch with his lips. Yeah.

He laid awake in the tent, guestimating the time to be somewhere around 3:30 A.M. The last time he checked his phone it had been 2:56…but the memory of Ignis’ smile could keep him awake all night, it seemed. 

And the object of his affections was lying right next to him, no less. But Ignis was sound asleep–he slept like the dead, a fact Prompto learned from far too many nights lying awake staring at the other man’s pretty face. 

It was now or never. His inhibitions were low like the time Ignis let he and Noct drink a bunch of champagne last new year’s, and he wasn’t planning on getting drunk around Ignis anytime soon. He rolled over a quietly as he could, lifted himself up on his arm, leaned in…

A smell that was distinctly Ignis flooded his senses. Something like the herbs he cooked with mixed with the residual scent of his citrusy cologne from the day before. Prompto opened his eyes–when had he closed them in the first place?–and was greeted with the sight of Ignis’ beautiful grass green eyes…

Wait…

Ignis’ eyes?

“U-uh, hey man!” he whispered, desperately trying not to let out a very unmanly scream. Wouldn’t want to wake Noct, you know? “I don’t know what you think this is, but it’s definitely not what it looks like!” He tried to laugh the comment off, but it fell flat. 

Ignis was silent, blinking the sleep out of his eyes while Prompto’s heart pounded in his chest. 

“Look, Iggy, we can just–”

“I’ve had a crush on you since the first time you made Noctis laugh,” he said it plain as day, like it was just a recipe written down in his book. Prompto didn’t have the first clue on how to respond. 

“You were insatiable and bright and everything Noct and I didn’t get to be in our everyday lives. I…” and Ignis finally turned his head to meet Prompto’s gaze, “I couldn’t take my eyes off you, for the longest time.” 

Prompto wished he could have snapped a photo of his own stunned expression, just for posterity’s sake. Just as he managed to pick his own jaw up off the floor, Ignis spoke again. 

“It’s no matter…” he murmured, letting his eyes slip closed again, “This won’t be real in the morning, anyway.” And Ignis surprised Prompto for the second time that night, slipping an arm around his waist and pulling him closer, “Let me hold you, while I still have the chance…” 

After Ignis drifted back off Prompto was tempted to wake him again, tell him this was real, that they could be real, but the subtle spice clinging to Ignis’ skin was far more relaxing than it should have been. Maybe if he just closed his eyes…for a few minutes…


Ignis thinks he’s a pro at lucid dreaming, but really it’s just Noctis lying and tricking him and seeing how far the trick can go.

the boys you do || calum hood

“Hey Cal… can I ask you a question?” you asked the person you considered one of your best friends for over 5 years now. He’s sat on a couch backstage, you were visiting on tour because you’d called last week and told Cal you just couldn’t possibly go another day without seeing his chubby cheeks. Cal chuckled at you, which you swore was your favorite sound, and then told you to come on out.

“You just did.” he chuckled, but patted the spot next to him, indicating you should sit. You roll your eyes, but take the spot. “Is that my flannel you’re wearing?” he asks, “How long have you had that. Hell it doesn’t matter, I’m pretty sure it looks better on you.” he shrugs.

OK SO

You know how Splash Mountain is an awesome ride, and super fun and all that? Yeah, it’s one of my favorites, but it’s also definitely based on like a super disgusting racist movie that Disney pretends didn’t exist. So I, being the genius that I am, decided that they should retheme Splash Mountain to MOANA. 

Ok but hear me out. Yes, yes, I KNOW it’s a classic ride and all that, but also!!! also! think! of! the possibilities! I have it all planned out okay?? the first part, when you go up the hill and outside, is like Where You Are, and then it transitions to How Far I’ll Go for that first little drop, and then when you go into the dark, it’s a You’re Welcome sequence with Maui and basically just like the scene in the movie, and THEN it transitions into Shiny when you go past that, and into that other dark drop, and the bottom part where it’s already like glow-in-the-dark is the bioluminescent part and it would be SO FREAKING COOL and then as you’re going up that last giant hill it plays Song of the Ancestors and you see like all the ghosts of the ancestors and stuff and it’s all blue and gorgeous, and the music builds to an epic crescendo (which is way better than the creepy ass ooooh you’re gonna die music they have rn) and then just as you reach the top of the hill, it goes I AM MOANAAAAAAA and then you DROP JUST LIKE WHEN SHE DIVES INTO THE OCEAN and then you go along the outside and back into the last room where it plays We Know The Way, and has like the big boats and all the warriors and LIN’S VOICE and then it ends and 

@disney listen. listen to me. where can I pitch this 

anonymous asked:

Ye I'm the ask for the urbosa and hylian, and to specify urbosa know that the hylian likes her and is too shy to say anything bout it.. sorry I didn't specify

It’s fine Anon, I just wanted to make sure
~Mod Sugar

Shy Hylian s/o (Urbosa)

From the moment you’d laid eyes on her, you’d been awestruck. Not just by her beauty but by her confidence too. The way she carried herself, as if she was in charge of every living creature. Things only got worse the more you got to know her. Urbosa’s personality was so bold and striking. She could tell the Earth to grow a tree for her and it would, that’s how commanding her voice could be. Of course, she did have a softer side and it was every bit as amazing as the rest of her.

Sighing, you pulled yourself from your thoughts. You were sat in Kara Kara Bazaar, waiting for Urbosa to show up. Months ago, you’d met at Hyrule Castle when she’d come over to discuss battle plans with the King. You had been her escort for the week, meaning you’d been able to get to know her a little. After that, Urbosa had insisted that you see eachother often and how could you refuse? It became a regular occurance, travelling to places inbetween to meet. Your feelings for her had only grown stronger with time but you knew there was no point in expressing them. Why would someone like Urbosa even consider liking someone as timid as you?

“I’m here!” Urbosa walked across the sands to sit with you by the edge of the small lake. Her reflection in the water stared at you.

“How have you been?” Your voice was quiet but Urbosa still seemed to hear it perfectly.

“I’ve been well.” She turned to face you fully “Although, something has been bothering me.” You stared at her, confused. You couldn’t think of anything that could get under this woman’s skin.

“What is it?”

“You.” You could have sworn your heart stopped beating for a second. You were bothering her?! How? Why? Feeling your face heat up, you turned away slightly to hide your red cheeks.

“M-me? I’m sorry, w-what did I do?” Not being able to meet Urbosa’s eye, you instead concentrated on her reflection.

“It’s not something you did. It’s something you’re not doing.” Before you could question her further, she spoke again.

“Why won’t you just tell me you like me?” This left you speechless. She knew?! Unable to do anything, you just continued staring at her reflection, your face burning with shame. Urbosa sighed and reached out. She turned your face to look at her. A gentle smile graced her lips and once again, you were awestruck by her beauty.

“If you’re willing to admit your feelings then I’m willing to try.” It took you a moment to answer.

“O-ok. I d-do like y-you.” Your voice stuttered and died out at the end of the sentence. Urbosa chuckled and placed her hand on top of yours.

“That’s all I needed to hear.”
