in poems , I am trying to find my bearings through a world that at times feels remote and inchoate and struck blank with noise. I would like to place myself in a field of deep attention, and out of that attention come to feel and regard with more acute understanding what is there. I write to be less hopelessly myself, to sense something more expansive than where I speak from. ––––––––– private andmutually selective.ft. films tv disney and original characters.
so we all now know that the whole reason for this war to exist is because of zarkon and haggars “need” for the quintessence.
this is zarkon pre and post rift. something that stuck out to me in s3e7 is that zarkon has pupils, which galras normally don’t? and like, ok, maybe zarkon just doesnt have those traditional galra features?
zarkon is talking to these people as fellow galras, however non of these people look like the galras we know today? two of them have markings and pointy ears which makes me think they’re altean or galra and altean. but i think that the family in the center is pure galra. ezor is half galra, and has the same ears as them, as well as the servant that the original blue paladin flirted with, and also the galra commander that throk talked with in s3e1 also has ears like that.
so why are they total buff furries now? quintessence! we know what the quintessence did to honerva
so, we now know that yellow eyes without pupils = quintessenced person? we also know that the alteans have been gone for 10000 years, so zarkon could have easily tried out new stuff with the quintessence, like feeding his army with it to make them stronger and more superior. basically what i’m saying is that the galra are all mutants made by the quintessence.
his test subject? laika the yupper. if you don’t know, laika was the first dog to be send out in space, so we can assume laika originally has been a dog in the show too, and judging by the looks of her, she has gotten a LOT of quintessence.
so after testing out the quintessence, he could give it to his army. the galras from the last pictures doesn’t look anything like the galras we see. the current galras have a build like laikas and (a lot) have features like laika, which makes me think that he is building an army with the quintessence.
and lotor? he obviously hasn’t gotten the quintessence treatment from his dad! but we already know that lotor is interested in getting the quintessence from alternate realities, and what is he gonna use it for? probably something like zarkon, to get stronger himself and live forever, but the quintessence is also the most energy filled substance in the whole universe, and you knwo what was also revealed in s3e7? THE LIONS WERE MADE FROM THE QUINTESSENCE OF THE COMET (which he stole in ep4!!!), and therefore lotor can LITERALLY make a set of lions to make an evil voltron. you know what he also have? 4 badass generals who probably wouldn’t mind piloting the arms and legs.
so yeah i just made an analysis of the galra empire and i have no idea what to use this information for.
bonus: the lions eyes are also yellow, but i didn’t know where to put this information ahhaha
This sounds dumb but I’ve decided I’m allowed to like languages without learning them. I’m allowed to learn languages just for the sake of it. I don’t need to reach C2 and have the linguistic prowess of Shakespeare in everything I do.
I mean sure there are some languages I want to reach ‘fluency’ in, and it’s something I’m working toward. But this is a hobby. This is fun. I don’t even take myself seriously in my native language, so why am I so uptight about perfection in my target languages?
Time to take a chill pill and just enjoy the journey.
