fuck, mick is finally calling out the legends on their shit treatment and they turn on him AGAIN despite how he literally just defended them AGAINST snart when he realized his dead best friend was REAL
the only one who’s showed even a remote amount of respect for him is Amaya and she hasn’t been around as long AND she was the one so obsessed with justice and the greater good and whatever and she still saw the good he’s done
GOD I’m so TIRED and MAD IS IT SO HARD TO SHOW HIM SOME BASIC RESPECT AFTER ALL THE SHIT HES BEEN THROUGH
That was the first thing he noticed when he woke up, back pressed against the earth. Underneath him, he could feel the dirt and rocks against his back, and above him, he could see the wide yellow sky as it converged on itself. He watched for a moment, saw the yellow hues meet, then mix, then collapse. It was different to the pinks and blues he was used to, and he quickly realized that this was a different planet than the ones that he had woken up in before. Different setting, he noted, but same premise. He had gone through this enough to know the drill.
The world around him seemed to tilt as he stood up, the sky growing ever closer with each minute.
He held out his hands and braced himself as the sky reached down to meet him - closed his eyes, exhaled a breath - and then the universe was in his hands.
As the familiar weight landed on his shoulders, he found it funny that he had once thought, when he first took up this job, that it was the weight that was crushing him. Now, a veteran Atlas, he knew that the greater burden lay in his mind - the knowledge that one wrong move, one slip, and the sky would come crashing down.
Time passed - he had long since stopped trying to count the minutes as he struggled against the weight. The sky was coming faster now, yellow and strong and bright and somehow it was even worse than before, those bright colors, because all he wanted to do was stop and stare and break down and let it wash over and- and god, this was more than he could bear. He shuddered and raged, and pushed back against his weight, but it was too much for him, and he could see, even before he felt it, his hands falter.
There was a pause, and then it all rushed towards him in a blinding yellow light.
When he woke up, it was dark. He felt the soft mattress against his back and groaned as he sat up, faintly aware that his shoulder hurt despite having only a light training session the day before. Slowly, he remembered how to breathe. It would be a while before the others woke, but he knew by now that anything, even preparing breakfast two hours early, would be better than going back to sleep.
As he walked quietly through the castle’s halls, careful not to wake anyone, he happened to glance through a window at the vast space beyond. Although the solid darkness gave no sign that it was morning, Hunk knew, as his eyes flickered away from the window, that somewhere it was dawn, and the sky was falling.
This is a friend I made in the wild. I don’t have my own pet-friend yet, but frogs and toads are my absolute favorite and I love your little guys! I just thought this gentleman was so handsome and distinguished. A scholar.
Hello lovely friend! 😊🐸 And lovely friend of lovely friend! 😀🐸
Tiny likes your friend’s Handsome Textured Jacket very much! An excellent overall ensemble with matching eyes and feeties!
Tiny sends you both a large treatie and many pats! 🐸😊🐸
I’ve been seeing this guy for a few weeks now. He’s nice and kind and interested, what else could I want?
Why do I not feel attracted to him at all? I should see where this goes - sparks are a myth, I can surely develop some attraction to him at some point! Doesn’t matter that I get a panic attack every time I’m about to see him and have to force myself out of the house!
We kissed and I didn’t feel anything at all? That’s okay I was just nervous, surely it will be better next time!
This girl on the bus is really pretty! Oh gosh she’s actually so cute, I love her face, I wish I could kiss her! Oh my god, what if I’m actually gay?! That would make so much sense!
Lol no, I’m surely just overthinking things because I’ve got commitment issues and I’m scared of getting into a relationship with that guy! Straight as a ruler!!!
i love my guy so much he brings such a bright goofy positive energy even to settings so unfamiliar to him hes really the king of spreading joy warmth and unification thru good times all around the world run and tell that!
