i don't even know the ship name for these two but i ship it

Voltron Ships in a Nutshell
  • //Positive version because I ain't about bashing ships//
  • Klance: "hey man sharp work out there. i'm with you but leave the math to pidge" gays in space, red and blue aesthetic *insert bonding moment*
  • Sheith: "it's killing me when you're away, but i'll save you as many times as it takes. it's good to have you back, i love you baby" *tender shoulder touch*
  • Kallura: "it's not what's in your blood, it's who you are that counts" alien leader power couple, red and pink aesthetic *random but appreciated hug*
  • Shallura: resident space dad meets resident space mom. do not mess with this power couple. when separated they'll keep moving on, even when the other is "...completely irreplacable" *throws into escape pod*
  • Hance: "THE HUNTERS HAVE BECOME THE HUNTED" friends to lovers aesthetic, mutual support. they probably have movie nights, such pure dorks :)
  • Pidgance/Pance: ouran high school host club vibes. gamer dweebs, most definitely gamer dweebs. spend their free time judging people, and roasting each other (read: roasting lance)
  • Pallura: "i like you more than peanut butter" strong women who don't need no man to fight for them but instead fight for their beliefs and loved ones <3
  • Punk/Hidge: nerdy science nerds. started out tolerating each other, but by season two they were crying because they had to go on separate missions if that's not solid development i don't know what is
  • Kidge: full on conspiracy theorists. fight about bigfoot and mothman more often than you'd think. "my name is keith, i'm sooo emo". look me in the eye and tell me keith didn't protect pidge when she crashed into him during the ulaz fight
  • Allurance: "if i had to lose blue to anyone, i'm glad it was you. i'm not saying you're dumb, i'm saying you're a natural". cotten candy aesthetic going on with pink and blue, blossoming friendship as of season three
  • feel free to add more, i am fully aware i missed a LOT of ships

Hello Mimi... I don't know if you know about this or will answer but I being a Fetus ARMY was just wondering why Taejin is considered the first ship of BTS. Wouldn't it have been namjin? I have seen a lot of posts of how taejin was the 1st ship. And was wondering if you could explain why that is so. Btw amazing blog, and I love your improvisions of big hit name. Fighting. :)

Thank you for enjoying this blog. 

Oh boi Oh gurl Oh creatures of the world. I am so glad we are going to talk TAEJIN. I made a post HERE but there is soooo many things to say about this ship. 

Why is it considered the first ship? During debut days, Jin and Tae were wild, Taejin even showered together 

There is also that kiss mistery, did they kiss on the lips or on the cheek? (video HERE

This ship was overshadowed by other ships over the time. but once you know about Taejin you will enjoy a loooot of special moments that these two share. They are so precious I promise (this habit of jin touching V’s chin is a thing)

Aside from a shipping perspective, they are very close. As both of them love anime. Jin also takes care of V and Taehyung just adoooores his hyung. 

Dear fellow Shance shippers

First and foremost, I love you all so much. the fan art is absolutely beautiful, as well as the wonderful stories and headcanons that you all share. I love our fandom so much. You are all so talented and so very kind.

But I can’t help but feel terrible because of how underrated this wonderful ship is. It honestly hurts to think about. The whole fandom knows that Klance is “the favorite”, as Tyler Labine said in one of the panels, or whatever. And Sheith is the second most favorite… I am personally so tired of seeing those two while I scroll through the Voltron tag.

I am also tired from Klance and Sheith shippers asking why we ship Shance since “they don’t even interact much in the show.” Maybe so, but so what? The whole concept of Lance looking up to his hero is something I find very intriguing and just very significant, and I want to know more about why he says so. Also in the first episode of season one, when they shook hands Shiro said, “Lance, right?” Did anyone ever stop and think, “Wait, how did he remember Lance’s name when Pidge introduced “himself” (at the time) and Hunk to Shiro?“

Shipping Shance is honestly such a struggle because all we can do is hope that they can interact some more in upcoming seasons. I know it sounds like I’m complaining, but really, if they could just interact some more, I would be so freaking happy. Just give me some new content. Let Shiro witness a more serious side of Lance, and praise him for it.

Lance is a very insecure person, as we all know, but if Shiro gave him the slightest bit of encouragement, he would feel more determined and ready to accomplish anything. I have a headcanon that Lance goes to Shiro to talk about whatever concerns he has, whether it’s about missing his family or not feeling important to the team, Shiro knows what to say. And in the episode “Crystal Venom” from season one, Lance was very concerned for Shiro spacing out for a moment before he left to help Coran clean the cryopods. And let us not forget about that iconic episode in season one when Shiro was tending to an unconscious Lance and placed him gently to the side as he was soon facing Sendak to fight him hand-to-hand before Haxus made Shiro submit when he revealed that Lance was within his grasp. Shiro’s worried expression says it all.

They really care about each other. Yes, they may not interact very much, but it’s the little things; their actions. Their facial expressions.

All I’m saying is, Shance deserves a chance.

You were sitting on the couch of your shared flat with your back leaning against the armrest. Tom sat down normally on it while your legs were resting on his lap. Softly he was caressing your leg from your knee down to the end of your jeans.

“Watching TV with this young lady.” Tom suddenly spoke up. You looked up from your phone only to see him filming with his own. “Don’t call me ‘lady’.” You chuckled. “I said young lady.” Cocking an eyebrow at you he justified himself. “Still.” The video ended and he posted it to his Instagram story.

Again he started filming. “Stop filming me!” You laughed before getting up and starting to walk away from him. Quickly he grabbed your waist with his free hand, pulling you back abruptly, giving you no chance to flee, and causing you to fall onto his lap. You were a giggling mess as he tickled your side when you were leaning backwards a little.

You connected your lips with his, deepening the kiss by placing your hand on the back of his head after he had stopped moving his hand around on your sides.

“Don’t post that!” You demanded afterwards. “Relax. It got cut off, you can’t see the kiss anymore.” Without checking and believing what he had just said he went ahead and posted it to his Instagram story as well. “Come on, let‘s go to bed, we gotta get up early tomorrow.” He was right. You two were in for a show in London tomorrow that usually is early in the morning, live.

The next morning you looked at your phone seeing it was exploding. So many tweets you were tagged in and Instagram posts as well. As you saw what the fuss was all about you gave Tom the most dangerous glare ever. “Thomas. Stanley. Fucking. Holland. Are you out of your mind?!” You showed him what was going on as you both rewatched his Instagram story from last night.

“I am so sorry. I-I don’t know what to say.” The brunette nervously rubbed the back of his neck. Sighing you call the number of your publicist. She picked up quickly and you could feel the anger through the phone. “Yeah I know what you said, it wasn’t planned. I swear.” “Yeah we’ll have to deal with that today at the interview. Again I am sorry.”

After hanging up you stare at Tom, still enraged. “Are you-” “Yes Tom. I am mad. This is what I mean. You need to be a little bit more careful as a person with your amount of fame.” You stormed into the bathroom pushing past him before getting ready for the interview. 

On the way to the studio you didn’t say a word. “Oh come on. I thought you wanted to be able to go out like a normal couple and all.” “Hold on, you did this intentionally?” “No, of course not. But maybe it was fate telling us it’s better that way.” Tom joked trying to cheer you up. Desperately you tried to stop your mouth from curling up into a grin but this boy just made you smile with his cuteness.

“I can see your smile, love. Now, gimme a kiss.” He leaned over to you. You just kept your position but as he moved closer to press his lips against yours you also didn’t fight him.

Satisfied he smiled. “You love me.” “Unfortunately yes.” Rolling your eyes you entered the studio. “We will deny it. Got it? No kissing, no holding hands et cetera inside this building.” “I don’t know how you want to try denying it with the video that practically the whole world has seen but oh well.” “ Just promise me!”

“Okay okay!”

As the interview started it was of course the first topic to talk about. “So what do you have to say about the video? Are you two sharing a flat?” “No, that is an old video from when we lived together with Jacob and Zendaya for a while when we were filming the movie.

“So you two have been together for a while now?” “No.” “But then what about the very clear and obvious kiss you two shared in the video?” Silence. You had no answer. I guess it really was useless to deny it. Glancing at you he practically asked for your permisson and you gave it to him by nodding briefly.

“Well okay. We did try to keep it a secret, also just to see how it turns out, how we turn out but I guess we really can’t find a good excuse for this.” Shortly he let out a sweet laugh. “Yes, we’ve been dating for the past three months. And yes the video is from yesterday evening. And yes this is our shared flat.” Somewhat embarrassed you made yourself small on the couch you two were sitting on. Embarrassed because you were actually trying to deny it although it was completely pointless from the beginning.

He noticed you turning nervous all of a sudden. Assuringly he flashed you a bright smile while taking your hand and intertwining your fingers before placing his and your hand on his thigh.

The interviewer took a quick look before going on. “Well personally I don’t understand, why keeping it a secret? I mean I do but now I am only talking about the response of your fans. Just look at all these tweets wishing you all the best. And you two being shipped with each other and of course also having a trending ship name isn’t actually new.” She chuckled before showing us some of the tweets. “Yeah we actually haven’t had a lot of time to look at the responses yet.” Tom spoke up. “But I am glad to see that they are supporting us rather than hating on either one of us.” Smiling you took a sip of your coffee.

I don't even ship J x D but the modern AU with dragons as kids and Jon as the teacher is just so LOL I love it. Like what if they had a hot steamy hook up in a bar and then the next day is the the triplets first day at school and surprise! Jon is their teacher. And J&D are all well we should call it off because this is frowned upon and inappropriate but they keep bantering and eye flirting until the ~~sexual tension ~~ is too much and sex happens. Aaahhhh IDEK what this is bt I ship it now lmao

so i know you didn’t send this as a fic prompt but my hand slipped

Keep reading

I really wanna say something with all due respect

In season one, I used to ship Alex with Maxwell. I thought they had chemistry and I saw a sparkle there. In season two we found out officially that Alex is homosexual. And this is perfect I love Sanvers very much really it’s an otp. But what if I continued to ship Alex and Maxwell? According to the fandom, I would be homophobic, disrespectful and racist for trying to change someone’s sexuality even if it’s just a TV show character. So, at least for now, the show has made it official that Kara is straight. I’m not saying that she couldn’t be bisexual and fall for Lena. But for now she’s only dated and falling for boys. You can hate Mon-El all you want if you don’t like his character. I can’t relate because I don’t HATE characters or ships I just “don’t like”. But hating him and Karamel because of SuperCorp (sorry if I got the name wrong I mean Lena and Kara), it is disrespectful towards the fans, the writers and most importantly the actors who are just doing their jobs. I ship Karamel, I see Mon-El as I see a refugee who comes into a foreign country and tries to learn how things work and what are the rules (I live in Greece so I know some stuff about refugees). He wasn’t born on Earth. Kara and Clark had the chance to grow up on Earth and learn things. Mon-El is alone, trying really hard.
Anyways, this fandom used to be so much fun. Now I am just ashamed to be a part of it. Peace!

V: alright Demon Curse, I know you don't do favors for people but I don't know who to go to... I have a problem named HellSans. He won't freaking leave me alone! Can't you send him to another dimension, vex him or something?! I beat him up and he still comes back! Curse wouldn't have the spine to do anything to him, that's why I need YOU... I don't like you but I hate him even more....

*If you weren’t a member of the crew, I wouldn’t give two sh^ts….Buuuut whatever…

*Now then, lemme give you a pop quiz! What do you do when you see a wild animal outside of your house? You stay inside, of course. The ship has a strict policy about outsiders flirting with the crew.  And the captain ordered me and the kid to KNOCK that policy into people’s thick skulls( or feed them to Mel and Sen.) So my advice? Stay on the ship. I’ll handle the rest, K? Sure it may suck not going anywhere, but if ya want to keep the sharks away, ya best not take the dive.

Good things come in threes

The first time it happens, Kraglin gets temporarily demoted down to crewman for a week, with nothing but scrub duty assigned to every waking shift, while Yondu stomps around the ship with his coat collar high and a murderous scowl on his face. (The ship’s bathroom facilities have never looked so sparkling clean before, because never let it be said the two of them couldn’t find new ways to express their rage through sheer bloody-minded spite.) 

Kraglin gets the last laugh, though, because Yondu promotes Gef, of all people - speaking of spite - into his position for the week. And well, let’s just say that when the words “first mate” finally revert back to their proper spot next to Kraglin’s name on the ship rosters, the collective sigh of relief from the crew actually stirs the back of Kraglin’s mohawk from the force of it as he makes his way back to the bridge. He doesn’t say “I told you so” because that would be inviting swift death by arrow, but he doesn’t work that hard to put away the smirk, either. Especially since Yondu’s still got his collar up.

The second time it happens, Kraglin gets assigned to a Long Distance - solo for almost a flarking astral month - that winds up netting them a healthy balance of units, but also nearly kills him at least half a dozen times. The last of which he only escapes by dint of some truly reckless piloting through flarking Kree territory. All things considered, he feels completely justified bitching to the quartermaster about the cost of repairing the resulting damages to his M-ship, which gets passed up the chain to the cap’n, which is perfectly fine, because he was intending to bawl Yondu out anyway for 1) trying to kill him and 2) not having the common fuckin’ courtesy to try to kill him face-to-face.

The bawling-out goes about as well as can be expected - i.e., Kraglin ends up knocked on his ass. Whereupon he waits until Yondu’s standing over him, clenching his blue fists and breathing hard and doing a piss-poor job of hiding that yellow sharp-toothed grin, then surges up and wraps his long arms around Yondu’s legs and takes his captain down to the floor with him. 

This leads directly to the third time happening. Yondu sits up gingerly afterwards, touching the newest (and largest) hickey on his neck with an expression on his face that looks equally torn between disbelief, furious rage, and post-orgasmic fucked-out daze. It’s almost magnificent to watch.

“You…you just don’t learn, do you, boy?” he grinds out, eyes narrowed.

“Nope,” Kraglin says. He regards the faint but ominous flare of red along the cap’n’s crest with about as much equanimity as can be expected from someone who’s buck-ass naked and has been screwing said cap’n into his own mattress, enthusiastically, for the past hour, and might be a mite dazed himself. He shrugs internally and reaches down to rummage around in his discarded jumpsuit. “I gotchu something for that, though, while I was out on assignment.”

Yondu squints down at the coil of red material that Kraglin holds out to him. “The hell is this?”

“Scarf. Grabbed it from the mark’s closet when zie weren’t looking.” It’s expensive stuff, almost indecently shiny and satin-like. “’S real Shi’ar silk.”

“I know that, ya idjit,” Yondu says, but he’s a true Ravager, and can’t keep the avaricious gleam from his eye.

“Figured I’d try to make up for…y’know…the neck thing,” Kraglin explains diffidently. He might be pretty sure of his place by his captain’s side, but he also ain’t dumb enough to keep going and say that he’d really only been thinking about how good the red would look against Yondu’s blue skin. Wrapped around Yondu’s throat, tucked into the collar of his duster. Wrapped around Yondu’s wrists. Hell, maybe wrapped around Kraglin’s wrists, and ain’t that a fantasy designed to keep all good little first mates up at night.

Yondu doesn’t help his case when he yanks the scarf from Kraglin’s hands and winds it around his fingers, looking thoughtful. 

“Don’t think this means y’got any kinda permission,” he says, with a meaningful purse of his lips.

“’Course not, sir,” Kraglin says, and he’s even mostly sincere this time.

(Dedicated to @ask-a-ravager aka write-like-an-american, because my version of Kraglin, Yondu and the Ravagers owes more than a little bit to theirs.)

Edit: Now with ART! Go click!

anonymous asked:

Sense the SDCC thing, I've been seeing a lot of art and fics that are dragging Kara/Supergirl. Like I get that some people are upset at the actors but the characters have nothing to do with any of this. I started watching the show because I read the comics when I was a kid, I just loved Supergirl as a hero. It's really kind of upsetting. They're treating a character like shit because they don't like something the person who portrays them did.

So this is a long dissection of the current Supergirl fan behavior, but if you’ve been wondering what the hell is going on, you might be interested in reading these concepts.

I understand why you’re upset. I am too, because Kara is such a wonderful character. I don’t think I’ve ever liked a character as much as her.

But there are two things you should realize when seeing this:

1. They never really cared about Kara to being with. Your loved Kara-focused content isn’t changing or leaving, because these people were not making the Kara content. They were likely initially making Supercorp Lena-focused content.

2. It’s not even about her.

I think what a lot of people who are newly joining this SDCC homophobia discussion are missing is that a lot of the most vicious backlash is not from people who are uniquely upset over this issue (though there are certainly people who are- and understandably) but from people who have had consistently overzealous reactions of hate toward actors and characters alike, save their fave (pretty much Katie Mcgrath/Lena Luthor).

On tumblr, and very noticeably in this fandom, there are sections of fans who seem to genuinely enjoy hating things. It’s a sport.

They’re having fun sending the most hurtful things they can think of to actors, and are the quickest to begin making vicious memes and jokes surrounding a negative event, before there has been a consensus within the community of how bad the “sin” was.

The “punishment” begins before the jury is out, and trying to defend those in the situation feels like trying to put a bullet back into a gun after it’s been fired. 

(Maybe it’s more like stepping in front of a bullet, because once these few have decided that the target is guilty, they won’t stop, and anyone who disagrees with them is guilty, too. Blogs and actors alike.)

This is partially why my discussion of the SDCC event had a “are they homophobic” slant (other then that I believe the nature of the event itself- if it was homophobic- hinges on the feeling behind the words, unlike most other instances of homophobia. It’s complicated and some people understandably disagree so far, but it’s really how I see it and I’ll be talking more about it a little later in different posts).

People started calling Melissa and Jeremy homophobic right away. Started targeting Kara as a character. Started “spite shipping” Lena and Reign. 

Or alternative to these options- immediately fan re-casted Kara as someone else to still be able to ship Supercorp. 

From where I stand, if you can so easily let go of this characterization of Kara, you never really cared about her as a character to begin with. If you don’t know that this was The™ person to play Kara Danvers, you’re likely more invested in the role she plays for Lena than for her as herself. 

And regardless of gender, I am uninterested in ships in which one character exists for the sake of another. (Lena existing purely for the sake of Kara’s development squicks me, too)

Recasting a woc as Kara doesn’t sit well with me either, for that reason. It’s a similar concept to how Maggie must exist as her own complex and valued person, apart from Alex, because she is a character of color.

I can’t really read the minds of these people, and I guess I could be wrong, but it’s hard for me to imagine actual Kara fans recasting her in this way.

Essentially, a lot of these people, or at least a very vocal minority, are so quick to accept that something horrible has happened because they want an excuse to hate them. 

They like it. 

Maybe it’s because they’re upset with the way society is and want someone to suffer for it. Maybe it’s because they have unresolved anger in their lives. 

But as it stands, it appears as if these people are using moral rightness and social activism as an excuse to be as mean as they want.

And like @youngbloodbuzz said in the link above, you start to look at their past behaviors in a new light. Were they genuinely upset at characters? Actors? Did they really feel like a travesty was occurring? That someone needed protecting?

Or were they just looking for reasons to call someone a “stupid cunt”?

It’s like they’re genuinely thinking, “It’s okay for me to make fun of someone’s physical appearance, call them intense names, make memes about how horrible they are innately, and send them death threats because they said something problematic once that a lot of people will hear.”

Sometimes they’ll call it “coping”, and maybe some people truly believe that makes it okay. But coping mechanisms are not above reproach.

If I hurt someone because I’m upset about something- even if I hurt someone because they did something wrong- it doesn’t erase the fact that I hurt them. We are still responsible to how we react to bad situations. We are still responsible for not reacting in an overly inflated way. 

Sometimes people will focus on how those that they’re attacking have more of a responsibility to be good people. That they are but mere bloggers, screaming into the void. They can’t possibly be accountable for how they behave. 

“I’m tired of talking about how bad the fans are, we should be focusing on what they did wrong!”

It creates an atmosphere in which an honest mistake from a well known person is much more crucifiable than the purposeful cruelty of the fans. We’re discouraged from criticizing popular blogs because the person they’re attacking has a wider audience and larger consequences for mistakes, as if popular bloggers don’t reach and influence thousands of people and as if we aren’t allowed to shape the way our own community functions.

Meanwhile, people who genuinely value morality and social activism fall prey to this thinking. They’ll even join in on the action, because they think it’s a moral act. 

Rebellion, somehow. Righteous fire. 

It’s a twisted mindset that spreads because people are afraid to be on the wrong side of morality.

Even people who really think the reaction is “too far” are quiet about it because they agree with the fact that what the offending celebrity did was wrong, and see that the level of vitriol for them now is overwhelming.

This is how I imagine that people who believe Melissa and Jeremy’s words to be homophobic but who do not think a couple of mistakes makes someone pure evil are relating to the current tumblr dialogue: 

“Wow this thing was homophobic!”

“Huh, yeah, I agree. Maybe not intentionally, but yeah.”

“That means this person is homophobic!”

“Uh, well, not sure I’d go that far-”

“Oh and look at this other somewhat problematic thing they did a while ago”

“Hmm well that’s bad, but not everyone outside of social activism gets that that’s a bad thing, so I can see-”

“Wow did you hear that this person also has an opinion about the show that I disagree with! What the fuck is wrong with them?”

“Oh. Well I actually agree with them in that situation but-”

“Omg they think that their character is like this! Do they know them at all??? What kind of terrible actor doesn’t know their character?”

“Well that’s a pretty common way that people are reading this character. Just because you-”

“Here’s some conjecture about their personal life that I imagine happened that paints them in a bad light.”

“Well, you don’t know that, but either way you shouldn’t be diving into their personal-”

“Oh and here’s a totally real story from an anon about someone they know who knew this person in the past and says they were a jerk at this one point-”

And it becomes too much. If you don’t really love the actor, really love their character, you either extract yourself from the group or you ignore the opinions you disagree with. 

It becomes quite clear that these people want to feel this way and won’t be changing any time soon.

And the more there seems to be a consensus about the issue, the less willing people are to speak out, for fear of rejection.

The Spiral of Silence theory is a good way to explain it:

To avoid isolation, people tend to refrain from publicly stating their views on controversial matters when they perceive that doing so would attract criticism, scorn, laughter, or other signs of disapproval. 

Conversely, those who sense that their opinions will meet with approval tend to voice them fearlessly and at times vociferously. 

Indeed, speaking out in such a way tends to enhance the threat of isolation faced by supporters of the opposing position, reinforcing their sense of being alone. 

Thus a spiraling process begins, the dominant camp becoming ever louder and more self-confident while the other camp becomes increasingly silent.

Importantly, the spiral of silence occurs only in connection with controversial issues that have a strong moral component. What triggers a person’s fear of isolation is the belief that others will consider him or her not merely mistaken but morally bad. Accordingly, issues that lack a moral component or on which there is general consensus leave no room for a spiral of silence.

Additionally, I believe that if someone does speak out against the (perceived) majority, it is most likely to be someone who is very strongly opposing of it.

A person who believes “It isn’t homophobic at all! They are innocent!” is more likely to voice their disagreements than “Okay I agree with your assessment of the situation but I think maybe we’re being too harsh…”

So the “minority”- who could technically very well be the quiet majority (people with middle-ground opinions just don’t get as many followers)- stays quiet. 

They might even change their minds to agree with the “majority”, over time. 

Believing that the mindset of the group that you belong to is wrong is psychologically uncomfortable, so it is not uncommon for someone to try to adjust their thinking to fit those they feel connected to.

So, eventually, the only people who are speaking at all are those “majorities” who hate these people. Or those who act like they do for notes.

And then this thinking escalates amongst those still talking about it (remember: because it’s fun for them and they want to milk it for as long as possible) and it quickly translates to hating their character, once they’ve temporarily run out of material to be angry with the actor for.

So, back to your concern, how long until, “it’s hard to look at Melissa as Kara right now, because of how I fear she might feel about gay people” becomes something like “Mon-El is abusive, but Kara can choke so whatever” ?

(And on that note, one should consider how much they really wanted to protect Kara Danvers’ characterization from Mon-El’s influence, and how much was just a part of their hate-hobby.)

Maybe it won’t go that far. I hope it doesn’t. I hope people come to their senses about this.

But it’s escalated even since yesterday, when I started making this post. The language being used to describe Melissa when she is speaking normally, about normal things that some people have a difference of opinion on, is abhorrent. 

So if you’re just trying to enjoy fandom in a peaceful and creative way, I encourage you to watch how the people you interact with react when something negative happens.

Are they disheartened? Crushed? Are they considering leaving the show and it’s fandom? Writing serious essays about how they’re hurt?

…Or do they come alive?

Are they incredibly angry, and then making jokes immediately? Memes and edits and creative content more so than they do on a peaceful day? Do you get the sense that they aren’t going anywhere, for a long time, even though they don’t seem to enjoy anything about the show?

Then you might be better off unfollowing them.

Of course, not everyone who makes a joke about negative things is thus enjoying it. It makes people feel better to make light of situations as well as to express anger, and doing so doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re drama-seeking.

And sometimes people slip into the mob more than they would like to have, retrospectively. Say cruel things that they regret later. 

It happens, and tumblr can be a persuasive and pervasive place. 

If you follow someone who initially reblogs some slightly overly hateful things, but who then backs off after the first wave, they probably aren’t the kind of person who is fueled by anger. 

I’ve seen a lot of people I considered to be level-headed get wrapped up in overly aggressive, black and white thinking during the initial reaction to events.

But then sometimes, a couple of weeks later, they’ll post a tentative “Anyone else still wanna kinda like this thing, even though we said it was bad before?” and they’ll get enough approval via reblogs to feel like it’s okay to go back to normal.

Some blogs quietly sort themselves out, in the end.

And if you’re one of those people who goes overboard occasionally, I get it. 

You’re hurt and you didn’t realize that the basis for the fan reaction that you were involved in was morally shallow. That the people you were supporting were not righteously furious, but using righteousness as an excuse to be furious.

But remember the message here: people make mistakes. It’s the patterns that really tell you who they are.

And I think we can be better. Have better patterns, as a group.

In the end, I encourage you to point out when a reaction is too harsh, toward anyone. Even if it’s difficult. Even if you agree that what the person did was pretty bad.

Agreeing that “black and white thinking” is bad can feel like you’re lowering your standards for morality. But I promise, you can still value the things that you value and loathe the things that go against it, without condemning someone’s entire personhood based on a mistake or a handful of mistakes regarding those things.

Even big mistakes.

People are complicated. We are all made up of really good things and really bad things.

It’s easy to believe that someone is wholly bad when they screw up.

The hard part, the part that will ultimately ground you and help you mature, is realizing that someone can have some really bad parts within them and still be good people. (I encourage you to remember that when thinking about yourself, as well.)

The trick is recognizing the difference between when people are making honest mistakes that unintentionally hurt people, and when they’re willfully behaving a certain way because they want to hurt people (or don’t care that they will). 

And further, between when people are lashing out because they’re hurt and when people are inventing hurt to be able to lash out.

These distinctions will help you realize who you can guide or trust to work their issues out on their own when they slip up, and who you should distance yourself from.

Some very vocal portions of the fandom are, unfortunately, the latter.

anonymous asked:

Why do you hate reylo so much? It's just a ship.

Me: “I hope that I’ll never again get another ask about Reylo in my life.“

Y’all: “Ding, ding, motherfucker.”

But you know what, since these past few days have been all Dramatique™, why not go all out?

I don’t hate it. Hating it would require me to have a far greater level of emotional investment in the Star Wars universe than I do. I have Problems™ with it:

Firstly, Relyo, as a ship, could only ever be a “Monster and Maiden” story, which isn’t the same as a “Beauty and Beast” story. A “Beauty and Beast” story is a story in which two individuals, one ostracized from the world for reasons beyond their control and made hard and harsh because of it, and another who, while externally fitting in with society, feels alienated on moral/intellectual/emotional/spiritual grounds, come together due to circumstance, see past each others appearances, grow and heal together, and come out happier, healthier individuals because of it.

A “Monster and Maiden” (MM) story is a story in which a truly, genuinely horrible person develops an obsession with, and terrorizes a person who isn’t, and calls it love. For a MM story to be good, the Maiden must learn from her interactions with the Monster, and ultimately become the principal actor in his demise. If she gains enough understanding of him to be able to look at his charred corpse with pity, that’s only an angst bonus.

I, personally, get a kick out of MM stories. I enjoy seeing women destroy men who try to control them. I love watching women using the tools of their tormentors on them. I revel in the inevitable irony of their demise.

But a “Monster and Maiden” story has no place in the Star Wars film franchise because:

A) It’s a multi-billion dollar family film franchise. The people that watch it are mostly casual movie-goers and children. Neither of these groups is all that capable of recognizing the Monster as an actual Monster because part of it is the charm.* The first because they only think about the film while it’s in front of them, and the second because even if they’re made uncomfortable by it, don’t have the language to articulate said discomfort, because we live in a world where male entitlement is the norm.

*Whether Kylo Ren has any charm to speak of is debatable, but considering the popularity of Reylo, it’s safe to assume that a not-insignificant portion of the audience thinks so.

B) Rey is the very first female protagonist in a franchise this big.

Millions of girls and women look at her as a sort of bastion of hope that things are finally, finally looking up for women on screen.

To have her character development be tied to a trope rife with gendered violence and rape allegory would be awful and cruel to the above mentioned girls and women. Women deserve a female hero who has a true, non-gendered hero’s journey.

Secondly, a lot of Reylo shippers’ shipping relies on Rey and Kylo being narrative mirrors/contrasts/parallels/equals. This is incorrect.

Rey is not Kylo Ren’s narrative mirror/contrast/parallel/equal. Finn is.

Finn is the one with a comparable and contrasting background: brainwashed since birth as part of a fascist organisation but left at the first opportunity because he could not participate in the violence, in contrast with Kylo who left a loving family in order to join a a fascist organisation and gleefully participate in it.

Finn is the one who changed his name when he changed alignment, just as Kylo Ren did.

Finn is the one who started out the film with one plan in mind and then discarded it for Rey. Just like Kylo Ren.

Finn is the one who introduces himself with a lie to Rey, just like Kylo Ren. Except Finn’s lie, “I’m a big deal in the Rebellion.” is growing into a truth, while Kylo Ren’s lie, “I could teach you.”* lost credibility once Rey proves herself stronger in the Force without any training and even more so once she finds a real teacher in Luke.

*Because it is a lie. Kylo Ren isn’t capable of teaching anyone anything. Teaching requires patience and also, you know, actually knowing what you’re doing.

Rey is the axis around which Finn and Kylo revolve.

Thirdly, continuing from above, but veering slightly into speculation so I’m putting it separately, Reylo shippers vastly overestimate the importance Rey and Kylo Ren have in each other’s storylines.

On Rey’s side of things, she has already bested Kylo. She has bested him in the Force and she has bested him in battle. Rey, after receiving proper training, will be able to annihilate Kylo in thirty seconds flat.

His supposed superiority in the Force was not only the sole reason he posed any kind of personal threat to her, but also the only thing he could use to tempt her to the Dark Side with.

The true temptation for Rey will be the opportunity to exact violent, brutal revenge on Kylo for Han’s murder. This temptation can’t come from Kylo himself, but most likely from Palpatine 2.0, with Luke being the counter who preaches forgiveness. Kylo Ren’s person does not play into any of this. Not one bit.

On Kylo Ren’s side of things, and if we go with “the final destination is redemption” thinking, people overestimate the amount of absolution Rey could give him that would actually hold any meaning.

Because Rey’s life on Jakku would’ve been pretty much the same be it the Republic, the Empire or the First Order in charge. She was in a desert wasteland and that’s that.

The only act that Rey has on Kylo, personally, is the murder of Han, and besides the fact that I honestly doubt that it’ll be forgiven, that’s only the cherry on top of a mountain of terror and violence he inflicted on the galaxy.

Because Kylo Ren is the face and right hand of the First Order, for his redemption to actually be meaningful, absolution must come from someone who suffered at the hands of the First Order.

Which brigs us back to Finn, who ran away because he was too good and too kind for it.

(Does anyone have any reading recommendations for this? Not just fics, meta as well, I live off of paralleling storylines.)

Finally, and frankly the only point I’m emotionally invested in, people who say: “Reylo is Zutara 2.0″

Like, what the fuck? No, seriously, what. The. Fuck. 

To liken the most self-certain character with one on a journey of self-discovery, to liken an abused child acting out of love to a grown man and fascist acting out of a desire for power, to liken a relationship built on shared history and narrative equality and mutual trust and bone-marrow deep understanding to an, at best mediocre, “Monster and Maiden” story?

How did their brains not melt and pour out of their ears from the sheer amount of mental gymnastics they had to do to come to that conclusion? How did their keyboards not spontaneously combust from being used to type out such balant, outrageous nonsense? How did reality around them not bend and tear under the weight of such complete, utter, willful misinterpretation of the characters involved and their dynamics?

In summary, Anon, I don’t care about Reylo, I think people who ship it misinterpret the characters and their relationship, but I’m neither knowledgeable nor invested enough in Star Wars to argue about it… until someone comes along and tries to say that shipping a fascist with the woman he terrorized and whose parental figure he murdered, is the same as shipping two people who manage to pour their hearts out to each other within five minutes of their first real conversation.

Holby city got 99 problems but “shippers boycotting” ain’t one of them..... high tea/high shade ahead>

Okay so the news that Holby city has currently lost roughly 2 million viewers is hardly surprising. The lack of coherency in the story lines, attention to detail, characterisation, story line progression and follow up is a huge problem for the show right now. Across the board, for every single character EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER AND SHIP!! THE SHOW HAS PROBLEMS AND IT ISN’T BERENA FANS TUNING OFF PUTTING IT IN JEOPARDY M’KAY…

I don’t have twitter but I have just read the most ridiculous and wildly misinformed comments and I wanted to address them a little. For anyone who thinks that the loss in viewership is down to Berena fans suddenly switching off, then I’m sorry but I fail to see the logic in that. The influx of berena fans will in no way match the deficit..BECAUSE 2 MILLION SHIPPERS DIDN’T JUST DECIDE TO SWITCH OFF IN SALTY BITTERNESS,  it’s a general loss of interest because the show has lot the plot. Literally. Plot lines being picked up and dropped at will. No nuance or attention to detail, just a heavy handed mess of contrived “shock” moments that do not lend themselves to further character development. Things happen, then they’re dropped and all but forgotten. This is the shows biggest problem, and “loyal, long time” viewer or not surely that’s plain to see. Blaming “short stay” fans who are purely in it for any one ship/character in easy, and deluded. 

I’m a hardcore Jemma Redgrave fan (who knew??) and I’ve tuned in for fucking months of literally nothing but filler scenes. Remember when Bernie Wolfe was a fully-realised character with her own story lines? me neither. But I’ve stuck in there, losing my shit over two minutes of screen time and practically having a hernia over things like The Redgrave speaking french and straddling a bar stool. I watched Serena’s character descend into a shell of herself, through a conceited and extremely heavy handed story line. I watched Catherine Russell do masterful work with pitiful material. So don’t come at any of us for being the problem. Because I think we should get a fucking award for hanging in there at all..the minute our ship became canon it all fell to hell. We stuck with it and rejoiced over things like hand holds and hugs which is pretty fucking sad when you think about all the kissing and validation of affection we see the hetero ships share. So no, not for a minute will I listen to any fucking argument that points the finger at berena fans being a problem in the ratings drop. I’ve seen the argument “no one character or ship is bigger than the show” well yes that works both ways and you can’t suddenly attribute the failures of something on any one character/ship, when you attribute none of the successes to it either. 

Holby’s fuck ups/plot drops in a brief summary..

  • Fletch almost died. Then nothing until he almost died again and miraculously recovered.
  • Sacha was so depressed/ kleptomania. Nothing since? how the fuck is he?
  • Jasmine introduced only to have literally nothing to do with her sister. Such an opportunity to explore both characters and their relationship wasted. Until the end ofc when they killed Jasmine off after pummelling her with crap after crap for a year. Nice one. 
  • Zosia killed that ceo dude who was so loathsome I can’t even remember his name..how was she after that? 
  • Zosia had literally nothing to do with the engagement story line
  • Cameron and Morven are they even a thing?
  • Why does Cameron hardly share a scene with his mum?
  • Does Bernie remember she’s madly in love with Serena?
  • Bernie being ignored through practically all of Serena’s grief storyline even though she’s her “partner”
  • Essie and Raf, what’s happening? I mean what.is.happening.
  • Influx of new characters when they’re barely providing material for the ones they have. 
  • Serena’s daughter died off screen and the official twitter account had to literally tweet to confirm her death.
  • No crossover or carry over of characters. The wards could basically be kindgoms in westoros for how apart we’re expected to believe they are. Mo’s leaving do is like one of the only exceptions of them having cross-ward socialising. 

THEY RELY ON THE “BIG MOMENTS/SHOCK SHOCK VALUE” THEN DROP IT. But they need to create story lines that’ll run for long enough for the viewers to be invested and actually care.

The list in endless and I’ll hold my hands up and say there’s so much i don’t know/remember long-term wise, so I’m sure people could add to this list but let’s just accept THAT THE SHOW GOT PROBLEMS ACROSS THE FUCKING BOARD and to suggest it’s down to one group of fans/shippers isn’t only misinformed, it’s pretty fucking hurtful. 


* these are all my opinions and I’m not claiming to be the voice for anyone but honestly as a berena fan I just wanted to put my thoughts out there and comment on something I wildly disagree with. Now I’m off for a cornetto in the sun, I’ve earned the calories. Happy Saturday. *

You don't ship Stanchez? That's cool, that's fine. But consider the following...

Stan with a ton of internalized homophobia who, even in his old age, isn’t very comfortable admitting he’s into another man. Canonically pansexual Rick with a who-gives-a-shit attitude to the gender binary and a strong desire to make other people uncomfortable.

Soos going through Stan’s records to find music for some event the Mystery Shack is throwing and discovering a brightly colored album of bizarre, vulgar, screaming punk music tucked in among the subdued oldies. 

Stan getting flustered when he mentions it, snatching it away and telling Soos to go clean the gutters or groom the Sascrotch or something.

Rick wearing Stan’s shirts and swimming in them. Stan wearing t-shirts with Flesh Curtains’s logo on them.

Rick writing several songs about Stan for Flesh Curtains that don’t have Stan’s name in them but when Stan hears them he knows, he knows. Stan hearing torch songs on the radio and thinking of Rick. 

Rick picking some obnoxious pop song and jokingly declaring that it’s “their song” just to annoy Stan, playing it on every jukebox and generally being an enormous troll about it, but then years later when the two of them are on the outs Rick hears that annoying pop song on the radio and starts crying and can’t stop.

Rick saving Stan’s life without even knowing it by coming into his life and distracting him from his problems just when he was losing hope. Stan saving Rick’s life without ever knowing it by giving him a purpose and a goal when he was beginning to think everything was pointless.

Both of them caring about each other so, so much but being far too emotionally constipated to express their affection openly so they develop a way of showing each other they care that looks incomprehensible, even dickish to outsiders. Like Rick is hanging around the shack and sees Stan wincing and rubbing his back, so he throws his back brace at him and says “here, dumbass.” And Mabel and Dipper are like “that guy is so rude” but Stan is touched.

Stan and Trans!Rick. Just…Stan and Trans!Rick.

Rick collapsing on Stan’s doorstop after nearly sending himself into a coma via a variety of illicit substances. Stan frantically trying to care for him even though he has no idea how to treat an overdose of neputian dream crystals. Stan screaming at Rick when he’s finally healthy enough to talk again.

Stan and Rick going on crazy crime sprees when they were younger. Stan and Rick still going on crazy crime sprees now that they’re older.

Morty visiting the twins and getting made over by Mabel. Morty going on a monster hunt with the twins and being pleasantly surprised at what a nice, non-abusive fun adventure it is.

Rick hiding out from the Galactic Federation in Gravity Falls. Rick living in the Mystery Shack with Stan. Rick slowly, subtly becoming more content and domestic. 

Rick realizing he just spent forty minutes shopping online for a birthday present for Stan and thinking he’s settling down and getting incredibly pissed off about it and taking Stan on some crazy space adventure to compensate.

Rick making cocoa and watching TV on the couch with Stan afterwards and realizing he’s actually enjoying this more than the intergalactic adventure and becoming incredibly angry at himself and acting like a pissy house cat for a week.

anonymous asked:

Hiya! real talk: for me the biggest mystery about destiel is how the antis keep saying it is not a real thing on the show but it's still one of the biggest ships to ever exist? I don't mind at all when others don't ship my ship but to say it isn't there? do you have an explanation why the ship became so big and so many fans individually shipped it, why would they if there is nothing there at all??

Hey! :) 

‘Why did this thing become such a huge thing, when the anti people keep claiming that it’s not even a thing at all on the show?’

Or the everlasting question: Is Destiel even a thing, or is a large part of the fandom just making the thing up? Which is a good question, but the answer is fairly simple when you look at the bigger picture. :p

Did one person at the beginning of the fandom just go “ah yes, Dean and Castiel, that is the future, you all should ship them, and it shall be one of the most talked about ships on the internet, because I’m starting the hype”. And then we all just followed like blind sheep and made it happen. 

Yeah, no. That’s not quite how it works, because it’s not going to grow that big (or last that long) when there isn’t actual material to back it up. 

How did it get so big? If it isn’t there? Or is it there? Story time! I’m actually going to quote myself here because typing the same thing twice makes no sense, and is quite frankly exhausting. 

From your ask I assume that you watch Supernatural, but let’s say you have a friend who doesn’t watch it. Said friend doesn’t know what the show is about, and doesn’t know anything about any of the characters in it.

Now you tell aforementioned friend about the show as it ACTUALLY is, only altering one little detail. So you tell them:

‘There’s this TV show that I like. In this show there is this young man named Dean, who makes a deal with a demon to save his little brother’s life, and ends up in hell because of it. Eventually, Dean gets rescued by the angel Cassandra. The reason Cassandra raised Dean from perdition is because God commanded it, seeing as the angels on this show don’t have any emotions whatsoever, don’t feel like humans do, and are merely programmed to follow the orders of the Heavenly host.

But the moment Dean and Cassandra first meet, all of this suddenly changes. Cassandra soon starts to feel, and starts caring about Dean. Caring turns into caring deeply, and ends in Cassandra turning her back on Heaven, rebelling, and even killing some of her own brothers and sisters in the process, then telling Dean that she did all of it for him.

Dean, who never had faith in God, or Heaven, or angels, still doesn’t have faith in any of that, but he now does have faith in this one angel, Cassandra. He trusts Cassandra, he prays to Cassandra (even though praying is begging in Dean’s book, and he hates that), and as the show moves on Cassandra grows away from Heaven, and closer to Dean.

Cassandra and Dean are separated on several occasions, and the odds are always against them, but even when Heaven, Hell, or Purgatory try to keep them apart, they always find their way back to each other. They both make bad decisions, mistakes, and there are cases of betrayal, but in the end they always forgive and forget, because they simply can’t stay away from one another.

Several times, Cassandra has died. Whenever Dean thinks he’s lost her, Dean gets depressed, has endless nightmares about losing her, even hallucinates seeing her, and turns to alcohol in order to keep going on with his life. They’re pretty much miserable without each other, as it shows on the actual show.
The bond they have is strong enough to break through any kind of mind control.

Every single one of their friends/enemies know that Cassandra and Dean are each other’s weakness, and use it against them at times. Long story short: Cassandra is willing to give up everything, even her wings, only for Dean, and we’ve reached a point in the show where Dean is in a position where he has to trust Cassandra with his life, and he easily does so.

As a side note: It’s not uncommon for Dean to tell Cassandra that he needs her to be with him, and it’s not uncommon for Cassandra to watch Dean sleep.’

Interesting, isn’t it? Do you hear what it sounds like when you summarize the actual story of Dean and Castiel as it is, even without changing anything or deliberately making it sound more romantic?

Now you go ahead and ask your friend what kind of story this is, and what kind of relationship they think that Dean and Cassandra have. I can guarantee you that there is a 90% chance that your friend will tell you: “DOH, they’re in love with each other, it’s a story about star crossed lovers, and that angel is so whipped.”

Then tell your friend that you lied. Tell them that you changed one tiny aspect, even though the rest of what you told them is true to what happened on the show. Tell them that the angel is a male named Castiel, not a female named Cassandra.

That’s the only thing you changed. And depending on your friend, there are different kinds of reactions you could get to this one, but the fact remains; It is what it is.

And that is all there is to it. 

Originally, this was a reply that I gave to someone who asked about queerbaiting and what it is, and how it works. I told them; one of the biggest red flags is when a story between two characters of the same gender, would be seen as unequivocally romantic to most of the audience if one of the two were to be replaced with someone of the opposite gender. When you actually write it out, it’s easy to see whether or not this applies to your ship.

Sadly, that is the case with Destiel. It’s one of the most obvious cases ever when it comes to this… you think it is a love story, because it is one. And that is what people are looking for when watching a show; love stories or relationships that are original and interesting. This applies to Destiel to such a degree that even straight people (who aren’t necessarily looking for representation) picked up on it because it so blatantly is a love story, and people in general enjoy those.

And because Destiel clearly fits the profile, everyone who isn’t necessarily blinded by their heteronormativity goggles (or by irrational hate), will at least see that something (a lot) is there. 

That is why the ship attracts so many fans. That’s why it has been the most reblogged ship for years in a row, why it has tons of fanfiction, fanart, and a giant fanbase.

Of course it helps that he actors have great chemistry, and even won an award for that. Can’t sell a story when the actors don’t back it up, after all. 

But long story short; you are watching a forbidden love story, about two fictional characters that fell in love even though their writers probably didn’t want them to. 

And this is why it is a thing, a big thing. The writers and showrunners are the ones who decide which stories they want to tell, but in the end, the fans will decide which stories matter most to them and thus will live on for years and years after a show ends. The fact that so many of them picked this story, says it all.

Even if it never goes canon, it doesn’t get more canon than this, because aside from a missing kiss, their journey easily rivals every love story every told. And that’s what made it big.

Journey Across The World For You

Moana x Reader, minor OC

Author: Lil Lambie

Words: 1700

Warnings: None :) just a wholesome cute fic enjoy!

Request: @vivere-citta I would like to request a Moana x reader (I’m sorry, I’m obsessed with her) where the reader wishes to help her on her journey to find Maui and restore the heart, but Moana thinks it’s too dangerous. (You decide whether it’s romantic or platonic)

A/N: As always, so sorry this took so long. All the Newt ones you requested are on the way. We are really working on tackling requests and getting them out quickly. Enjoy!

His foot drew back. He measured and analyzed the field in only two moments. Kimo screamed when his foot flew forward, out from under him colliding with the coconut. You and the other kids weren’t sure whether it was an initial scream of dominance or anticipation of pain and regret.

Either way, your brother threw himself on his back and screamed. Monstrous tears pouring down his face. You ran to his side, the other kids clearing a path for you. Moana was right next to you.

“Kimo?” Moana called out. She reached out to your brother and took him in a warm embrace, until your mother came bounding over with a look of disapproval on her face.

“He deserved what he got.” you told your mother as she walked away. She only sneered then returned to comfort your brother and nurse the massive bruise that would be on his foot.

“We could’ve used a ball of tweed or something.” you said walking back to Moana.

She shook her head at you and laughs. “If you kick tweed it’s going to just fall apart. Plus, you dared him to kick it.”

“He didn’t have to say yes.” you laughed.

Moana crossed her arms over her chest and shook her head at you. She tried to force a look of disappointment on her face. You only laughed. She scrunched her nose, raised her eyebrows and bit her lip. She began to turn red. She let out a breath and a smile and laugh broke through.

“I hate you, (Y/N).” Moana tried to say with a straight face, but she only ended up laughing.

You threw your arm around her. “You know you love me.”

The two of you laughed and wandered off to sit on the beach, and let the waves tickle your fit in the sand.



“I’m so proud of you, Moana.” He embraced her and pulled her close. She wasn’t Daddy’s little girl anymore.

“Thanks, Dad.”  Moana said, with a smile. She pulled away from her father and walked towards you. There wasn’t a smile anymore.

She walked past you, the chief crown hanging in her fingers. She walked to the beach and stood on the shore, letting the waves wash over her feet.

You ran over to her. You put an arm around her. “Hey.” you said softly.

“Hey.” she replied, staring at her feet. She kicked up some sand. The crown fell beside it.

“What are you going to do?” you frowned.

The two of you sat down in the sand. “I don’t know.” she shrugged. “I don’t want to disappoint. But, staying here doesn’t feel right.” she pulled at the Heart of Tafiti. Moana glanced up at the tree. The leaves were blackening and it was only spreading. “Everyone is telling to stay and lead.”

“Not everyone.” you raised an eyebrow. “I’m with you, 100% no matter what you do. You know that. But, the real question is what do you want to do, Moana? Who is telling you what’s right? Them?” you pointed back towards the village. “Or you? Don’t forget about that voice inside of you, Moana.”


Your heads turned sharply. Moana’s parents were standing, tearfully.

“Gramma…” Moana said softly.


You stood outside the hut.

Inside, Moana clutched her dying Gramma Tala. You hadn’t gone in with her, because it was personal and she needed to do it on her own. You were just there to make sure it was alright after.

The moonlight sparkled on the water. The ocean was just behind the line of trees. There was a whole world beyond the island and Moana wanted to join it. You would follow her across the world, just to be with her.


You turned to see Moana. Her emotions shattered. You wrapped your arms around her and hugged her. She cried into your shoulder. You held her tightly. You didn’t want to see her get hurt. You didn’t want to never see her again. That seemed like a worthless life.



Moana pulled away. She looked out at the sea. “It’s calling me.”

You looked at her, her hair whipping in the wind. The moonlight cast across her face, making her tears shine. Without saying another word, she jumped off the hill and ran down towards the ocean. Her future.


Moana was ignoring you and everything else as she pulled the sails tight. “You can’t tell me not to go.” she finally said.

“I wasn’t ever going to say that, Moana.”

“Then why aren’t you saying goodbye?” she turned around.

“Because, I’m not letting you go-”

Moana started to shout. “You can’t be serious! You have always said you support me in everything I do. You’ve been telling me to follow my heart. So I am. I’m doing this with or without your support. I’m going to find Maui, show him I mean business and return the Heart and-”

“Alone!” you shouted. “I’m not letting you go alone.” your voice softened.

You stepped into the water beside Moana and stepped onto the sail boat.

“(Y/N), I…”

You shook your head. “Don’t say anything.” you reached your hand out to her. “Now are we coming or what?”

She smiled and grabbed your hand.

You stood beside her and took a deep breath. “Let’s do this.”

She smiled at you then looked at the sail. She took a deep breath. “Yeah.” she sighed. “Let’s do this.” she grabbed a rope and pulled it back. “I don’t know how to sail, but we can do this. I’m going to go find Maui, tell him to put the Heart back, and everything will be saved. Yeah. I can do this.”

You smiled at her with no doubt in your mind.

Moana was going to save the world.


“Moana!” you cried.

Maui flung her from the ship into the sand. You ran and helped her up. He was getting away. “Thanks for the ship!” he laughed.

He pushed it into the water. You jumped and ran at him. You yanked the paddle out of hand. Swung your arm back, full force and let him have it with one swift whack of the paddle. “Hey!” He fell into the water. He resurfaced. Angry.

You grounded yourself. Moana now by your side. You held the paddle threateningly. “We can do this one of two ways. Moan and I leave you left for dead-”

“I can’t die. I’m a Demigod.” Maui laughed.

“You can suffer.” you said firmly. “Either come with us and restore the Heart, or stay here for eternity with only your massive ego to accompany to the end of time. But as the world dies, you will have to live with the fact that it is your fault. When you could’ve done something about it.”

You were fuming.

Maui was left speechless. Moana a little bit too.

Maui sighed. “Humans. So ungrateful. Get on the boat. We’re going to go save the world.”

Moana smiled at you. Your anger softened at her smile and you smiled back at her. The three of you jumped onto the boat. Off to restore the Heart of Tafiti.


You don’t know when you knew it. Maybe it was her laugh. Her smile. Her love and determination. Maybe it was just her. Before you set sail for Tafiti and all the adventures that would follow it. All the near death experiences.

Anytime you had doubts or fears, Moana was there. You were there for her too. There never was a moment that she was truly alone. You wouldn’t let her be.

You can’t put a finger on a point in time when you knew. Maybe it was that feeling that hit you when she laughed, when you knocked Maui out with a paddle. Or her standing courageously, in front of Tafiti, just a moment from death’s touch. As she restored the heart, you felt she had truly touched your heart too.

You are lost in the haze of applause and praise. The hugs that say I-thought-you-were-gone-forever. The way you hold her all the time. Because you’re so afraid that one day it might be true. You are limp when your family smothers you in hugs and kisses. Thinking of the day you met Moana and how she changed your life forever. Replaying your journey across the world you just returned from. From the beginning she was your everything, and you weren’t going to ever let go of that. You were nothing without Moana.

You tear apart from your family and tear through the crowd. You break free of the haze. Your only focus on one girl. Pushing past everyone. Ignoring everyone who was pulling you back. Finally breaking free of the hold of your thoughts. You had a little voice of your own. It was time you started listening to it.

“(Y/N)?” Moana says, as you push her father away from her.

You just grab her and kiss her. You wrap your arms around her, and hold her as she is your everything.

Moana pulls away. Out of breath. “(Y/N)…”

“No.” you say. “I have to say this.” you hold her hands. “Moana. I would sail every sea. I would journey across the world for you.” you laugh. “I just did. Because it isn’t any different. Moana, you are my world. I don’t know when I knew it. Maybe I’ve always known. I guess I just chose to listen to my own little voice for once. For the longest time, I listened to my doubts and fears. But today I’m listening to my heart. Do you know what it is saying?”

“What?” she laughs.

You move in closer. “It’s calling for you.”

Moana kisses you and takes you by surprise. Pulling away from just a moment. “Mine too.”

You kiss with everyone’s eyes on you. But you only have one focus. A girl who isn’t even seventeen. A girl who changed your world and opened your eyes to a whole new world. A girl who is your whole world.

Her name is Moana.

Gwenvid Week - Day 1

Sirens or AND Mermaids

Thud thud thud. “Hey! Do you fucking mind?”

David’s mother had told him that sirens had achingly beautiful voices. And while that was certainly true …

THUD THUD THUD. “I’m not leaving until you open this door, fish boy!”

… they weren’t quite as enchanting as he’d been led to believe. At least, not in David’s experience.


David pushed aside the seaweed that served as a curtain to his cave, watching as his intruder’s hand fell, the rock she’d been using to bang on the side of the cave entrance slipping harmlessly into the water. “Uh, there’s no door, ma’am,” he said after an uncomfortably long silence.

The siren glanced from him to the damp green-black strands. “You don’t have a door?” she repeated incredulously. “How the fuck are you even alive right now?”

Now | Next

“Can’t you just….” You fished for the words as you walked through the ship, trailing behind your boyfriend, “Not kill them? Like just capture Voltron and let the paladins go?”

He scoffed, “Sweetheart, you know that I can’t do that. And besides,” He turned on his heel and made eye contact with you, “Why would I?”

You felt your throat clog under his piercing gaze, and decided that now was not the best time to explain anything to him. Awkwardly, you managed to get out, “No reason,” with a small laugh.

Lotor raised an eyebrow at you before deciding to just let you be.

“I was so close to getting them this time!” Lotor said, “That Blue Paladin girl is really something else. She’s not the best but she’s pretty talented.”

You felt your heart beat accelerate at the mention of your sister, “So uhm, what stopped you from getting to them?”

He shrugged, “It wasn’t worth it, I can feel their defenses crumbling. I’ll just wait for the right time.” You let out a silent breath of relief. No matter how much you supported Lotor, you didn’t want anything to happen to your sister. It was better Lotor got her than Zarkon though.

You longed for the carefree days where you used to just randomly mention your sister to Lotor, never giving away a name - only small memories of the two of you. Now you feared that any little bit of information could kill her off.

“They’re close, sir,” Zethrid announced to Lotor.

“Good, I’ll get ready and meet them myself. Today will be the day that I get rid of the paladins and get Voltron.”

You quickly started following after your boyfriend. When he got to his chamber and reached for his knife, you stopped him by placing a hand on it as well. “Lotor wait, please don’t kill Allura!”

He stopped, “Who?”

“The Blue Paladin- Please don’t kill her.” He raised an eyebrow at you.

“Why not?”

“Because…she’s my sister.”

“She’s you’re what?” Lotor asked, eyes wide. His jaw slackened before he started walking briskly to the front of the ship. 

“Lotor, please-” You started but were cut off by him giving out orders over your voice.

“Zethrid, call of the drones. Acxa, get back on this ship. We’re leaving.” He turned to look at you, his eyes holding a power so much stronger than yours, “And you.” He tutted, “You have a lot to tell me.” You gulped down your fears.

Everyone else stared at you guys, wondering what had exactly happened. “But sir, we could-”

“Listen to my orders, Zethrid!” He interjected without breaking eye contact with you. He turned and started walking. You followed without a word.

It was hard for you to find out his exact feeling. Was it..anger? At you? You had no idea.

“Lotor, I’m sorry.”

“You’re sorry? Here I am, telling you almost everything, and you don’t even have the decency to tell me that your own sister is a paladin of Voltron!”

“I-I didn’t know until I saw her through the camera on your ship!”

“And you couldn’t tell me?”

“I.. I was scared.” You mumbled. “I didn’t want you to be mad at me.”

“Why would I be mad at you?” He asked, his voice lowering. “You don’t choose where you come from - I of all people know that. I’m mad that you didn’t tell me.” He put his hands around your waist, but you could tell that he hadn’t forgiven you yet.

“I’m sorry, Lotor. I swear, I wanted to! I just didn’t know how- I mean, ‘Yo lotor the lady you’re tryna kill right there is my sister just so you know’?”

“I don’t know, maybe you could have started by telling me that she was helping Voltron. That much you would have known.”

There it was, the icy glare that you knew would come. You see, the thing was you had known that she was helping Voltron. You knew since before you came on the ship, since before you started dating Lotor. You just never knew how to tell him.

Like always, the cunning man had won. He had found your weakness. Your slip-up had been that you hadn’t said that you didn’t know she was affiliated with Voltron. Rather, you had said you didn’t know she was a paladin.

You looked up and made eye contact with Lotor. He smirked, once again, he had you right where he wanted you.

Pidge and Lotor thoughts: I’m going to burn in hell for this...but anyway

Blame this on the dumb in me but….
I had thoughts of this dork here….

Winding up being crushed on by this dork here…

And I just started to think of all the weird ways that it could go in general: 

-Lotor finding Pidge attractive because she doesn’t look like most girls that he knows. 
-She’s a spit brand like Allura and it catches his attention.

-During a fight he winds up impressed with her skills and ablility to think on on the fly even though she’s younger then him. 

-Winds up asking Keith and Lance for advice on how to woo “Earth Girls.” 
-Starts to send her random items from around the galaxy as a means of interesting her, and she ends up keeping the science stuff. 

-He actually defends the Green lion from a blast and tells his men that she’s his to defeat along with Keith. 

-If/When he becomes an ally hovers over her as she’s doing work and she’s constantly having to shove him out of the lab so he will quit annoying her. 
-Eventually she has to relent and he helps her out, while teaching her how to read and speak Altean and Galran. 

-Actually releases her father to win her over, doesn’t work exactly. 

-She and Keith are the two that initially see his good side. 

-At some point the two wind up having to work together to get out of something serious and Pidge learns that he’s actually quiet smart and funny, something she wasn’t expecting from him. 
-Pidge actually helps get Allura to see Lotor as an ally at some point in time. 

-Wants to protect her because at first he thinks she’s a kid, then winds up thinking she’s really cute because of her height. 
-Grows interest of her due to the fact that he hears a lot from her father who he’s been ordered to keep watch over. 

That’s all I got right now. 

Trying to figure out a name for the ship if anything. Kotor, Pidotor, Pitor, Greenprince, forestprince, Any suggestions?
