i think that is one of his sons

One thing I’m really looking forward to in TLJ is learning more about Poe - and particularly his relationship with Leia. Because here’s a woman whose dedication to the light helped lose her son to the darkness. And here’s a boy whose parents fought Leia’s battles when they could have been spending time with him - and yet who grew into a man who honoured their legacy rather than trying to destroy it. And if you don’t think I’m 100% here for seeing Leia take on the role of the mother Poe no longer has, and Poe take on the role of the son Leia *hoped* she’d have, you don’t know me at all.

The boys get side tracked by a petting zoo, you can't convince me they wouldn't. Merle loves the goats, Magnus is cooing at all the baby animals and especially the ducks. Taako likes the ferrets and weasels the best because their tiny little paws just grab anything they want and he can relate to that, they're also very soft and Taako is all about soft texture stim.

taako? then proceeding to go to the library w/ ango often so they can learn about ferrets together (i.e; angus reading about ferrets while taako does his nails, then taako listening to angus info-dump abt ferrets on their way home)? then owning one w/ his son & husband? a much better concept than u would think

  • Mom's friend: Oh, did I mention that our son is an amazing artist?He's trying to start commissions with that!
  • Mom: Really?Well our daughter her is trying to be an author!She writes so many stories online. Sometimes she writes about clowns and aliens, because she really likes them all.

|commission info|

okay, so you know how they have the whole lineup at the end of episode 8 in season 2 with everyone and their weapons prepping to fight the demodogs?

lucas and his #iconic slingshot protecting his girl, Max

of course hopper has his semi-automatic weapon b/c why not?

steve protecting his son dustin with also #iconic nail bat

And Nancy has a rifle because no one else knows how to use it (and she’s the biggest badass in this entire series)…but WTF IS MIKE DOING?????

WHY DOES HE HAVE A CANDLESTICK OR THE FUCKING GOBLET OF FIRE??? DOES HE THINK HE CAN FIGHT MONSTERS FROM ANOTHER FUCKING DIMENSION WITH A MANTLE DECORATION FROM A PAWN SHOP?

WHAT ARE YOU DOING MY CHILD? THIS ISNT A GAME OF CLUE! PUT THE CANDLESTICK DOWN BEFORE YOU GET HURT. I JUST WANT YOU TO BE SAFE AND YOU’D SOONER HURT YOURSELF THAN ANY DEMODOGS WITH THAT THING.

I love how Jon repeats what Damian said to him in the second panel. Even though he bickers with him and they fight a lot, Jon does listen to what Damian says and takes his words to heart. I love that about their relationship. They act like they don’t get along but in the end, there is this kind of grudging respect between the two of them. It’s great and I honestly can’t wait for them to become real friends.

Lucas Sinclair S2 Appreciation Post
  • Is the only one who actually works to get money for Dragon’s Lair
  • Fact: has the best poses when the boys are getting their pictures taken in their ghostbuster costumes
  • Calls out Mike for assuming he should be Winston because he’s black
  • “TooOOotALY toooobuuularrRRR”
  • When Dustin thinks he’s discovered a new species, Lucas’s first instinct is to show Mr. Clarke + when Will thinks it may be from the upside down Lucas suggests they take D’art to Hopper = the only sensible child in this show. Don’t be afraid to ask for help kids!!!
  • THE ICONIC DOOR KICK !!!!!!! !!!!!!1111!!!!!!!!11!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Somehow makes jumping out of a dumpster look cool
  • Oh man, Caleb McLaughlin’s acting when he asks Max “how do you know about El?”
  • In that one line he conveys how much Lucas: 1. misses El, 2. cares about El, 3. wants to protect El, 4. is sad that El’s gone, and 5. feels guilty for not saving El. (asdjskafsdfh am I reading too much into this?? I’m sorry his friendship with El is just A Lot™ for me.)
  • Goes to his dad for love advice (seriously the only one that has any faith in adults) and listens to him (thank god there’s at least one healthy biological father-son relationship on this show)
  • After he tells Max about Eleven, he says, it feels “like yesterday” that they lost her. (Seriously FIGHT ME if you think El disappearing didn’t affect Lucas (or Dustin!))
  • Is such a good listener when talking to Max on the roof of the bus. He lets her pause as long as she needs to when she’s thinking about what she wants to say and when she finishes speaking, he doesn’t say anything right away because he’s processing what she said and wants to give a thoughtful, comforting response instead of saying the first thing that comes to mind.
  • Binoculars
  • Bandana
  • Wrist rocket
  • Most characters are lucky to get one (1) iconic accessory. This boy has THREE.
  • He also puts the black paint gunk stuff (i dont fucking know what it’s called ok??) under his eyes because when he’s gearing up to fight upside down monsters he commits to the Look™.
  • “Analogy” PRECIOUS GRAMMAR SNOB.
  • READY TO WRIST ROCKET THOSE DEMODOGS INTO NEXT TUESDAY WHO GIVES A FUCK IF IT DIDNT WORK ON THE DEMOGORGON HES READY TO THROW DOWN #nofear
  • Anyone who kicks Billy Hargrove in the balls is a hero to me
  • Doesn’t let anyone talk shit about his girlfriend’s driving skills. Mike: she’s only driven in a parking lot. Lucas: “That counts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!11!!!”
  • Practices asking Max to dance. so. many. times.
  • Still manages to fuck it up. #RelatableAF.
  • His hesitation to put his hands on Max’s waist. Someone help this boy, he’s so nervous.
  • His face after Max kisses him is so precious. I can’t even describe it. Gifs don’t do it justice. Just go back and watch the whole snow ball scene again, you know you want to anyway.
  • In conclusion, Lucas Sinclair continued to be a icon in season 2 and idk how anyone couldn’t love him.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT RAGNAROK:

“I am Thor, son of Odin.”

“Really?  You don’t look like him.”

It’s true, he doesn’t look that much like Odin, but it puts in mind the theme of family resemblance and, hey, look who does look like a family member:

But Loki and Hela aren’t related by blood, yet they look like.  Sure, sure, comic designs are being ported over to the MCU etc.  But you know what’s confirmed by this movie:

Shapeshifter Loki.

Odin, having had to seal Hela away before she caused too much damage, still thinking of her and the loss of her, his firstborn, and not too much later, this happens:

SHAPESHIFTER LOKI, EVEN AS A BABY, PICKING UP ON ODIN’S THOUGHTS OF HELA AND SHIFTING TO A FORM THAT RESEMBLED HER.

Picking up on just what exactly would allow him to survive, to be taken in and cared for, to be loved and protected.  And Odin, grieving over the loss of his firstborn, coming to love this child who looks so much like her, this new chance to do right with a child.

Ragnarok (and all of the Thor movies, really) is the story about how Thor is actually the redemption of Odin’s line, of course, that the terrible power both Hela and Thor wield is something they either do or don’t learn to do with compassion and good in their hearts.

But I love that this makes Loki just as important a part of the family as he can be. He has his mother’s magic, she would be proud of him, he is Odinson just as much as Thor is, Thor is closer to having his mother’s looks, Loki and Hela share looks, Thor and Hela share a power beyond almost anyone else we’ve seen, the web of connections and themes is everywhere and Loki is 100% fucking there with them all.

Things that didn’t get enough appreciation in Thor ragnarok

MAJOR MAJOR SPOILERS!

All kinda out of order and crazy so sorry for the disorganization. Masterlist    Prompt List    Request Here

Asgard under Loki’s rule has a heavy emphasis on the arts

Thor giving Loki a warning before making him reveal himself

Loki’s oh shit

Loki dropping Odin off at a nursing home. (He could have dropped him off literally anywhere else, but Loki chose a nursing home.)

Loki’s expression when Odin greets him and Thor as “My sons.” (because thats probably the first time in decades Odin has called Loki his son, or presented him as Thor’s equal)

Dr. Strange letting Loki fall for 30 min instead of putting him in an inexcapable room or something

Loki calling Dr. Strange a second class sorcerer 

The fact that Valkyrie probably created her amazing robot by herself, because it doesn’t look anything like the Grandmaster would have.

Loki getting to sit on the Grandmaster’s private couch when no one else could

THE GRANDMASTER IS THE COLLECTORS BROTHER (I saw this in a youtube vid where Jeff Goldblum mentioned that. I just think its notable how the king of a place where all LOST THINGS end up, is the brother of THE COLLECTOR)

Hulk being able to talk in hulk form

Valkyrie being an absolute drunk instead of a cute flirty drunk

Her and Hulk’s friendship (Almost like brother and sister relationship)

Bruce recognized Tony’s clothes even though Thor just shoved them into his chest. 

Thor and Jane broke up apparently? (TBH Im not upset about it. Thor was never there and when he was it was because she was in danger and he felt like he had to help her)

Thor wanting to be a Valkyrie until he learned that he couldn’t be. But even after, he still admires and respects them. (Proves that Thor is a true feminist) 

ROMANCE DOES NOT DRIVE THE MOVIE

“There better be cupholders on it” 

Thor constantly throwing objects at Loki to make sure he’s really there

The whole scene where Thor and Valkyrie are fighting in mid air on top of the ships. 

The entire snake bit and Loki smiling fondly at the memory VALYKYRIE WINNING IN A FIGHT AGAINST LOKI AND HIM STILL RESPECTING HER

LOKI STABBED THOR AT AGE 8 AND THEY THEY BOTH WERE FINE?!

Loki choosing to come back even after Thor electrocuted him and left him in the Garndmaster’s vault. (Thor gave Loki every opportunity to turn his back on him, but still trusted him enough to grab the crown and put it into the eternal flame.)

Thor 100% agrees that Hela is the rightful ruler of Asgard, butttttttt she’s to violent so he knows she can’t be queen.

VALKYRIE BEING BI SEXUAL

NO ONE CALLED HELA A BITCH FOR BEING AN ASSERTIVE POWERFUL WOMAN WITH AMBITION AND DETERMINATION. NO ONE! 

Loki getting the redemption arc he deserved

Thor and Loki getting to be brothers from the first time we’ve seen and actually fight by each other’s side 

Thor being proud of Loki for coming back to Asgard

Loki being proud of Thor for harnessing his lightning powers. 

There is not a single butt or boob shot of Valkyire, or any shot that paints her in a sexual light. 

The fact that when she’s threatening Thor with a knife and he pushes it away, she brings it back up and he doesn’t try to push it away again. (HE RESPECTS HER ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND THAT SHE IS GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT KNIFE IS THERE AND HE BETTER GET USED TO IT NOW)

Loki noticing how insecure Thor is with his eye patch and immediately putting Thor at ease by saying it suits him. (Not only does it look good, but it suits his personality)

How similar Odin and Thor look now (what are you trying to say Marvel)

The wink the grandmaster gives Loki when he mentions his age and Thors confused look. (The fact that Loki is more like “whelp now you know Thor” than embarrassed or upset.) 

Odin probably being the worst father in history. Couldn’t parent 1 of 3 kids right

IM HERE!

I know I have more but I just can’t think of them right now so here you go!

Team Revengers

Louis reacting to my “Love you no matter what” poster during Don’t Forget Where you Belong :’) Ottawa, 9.8.2015

do you ever think about what happened after matthias died? crooked kingdom might end on what is, essentially, a hopeful note, but i don’t think these kids recover that cleanly or that easily. kaz brekker and his court nurse their grudges. they don’t forgive and forget. matthias helvar haunts them for the rest of their lives. 

they don’t wage a war. they don’t hunt the young fjerdan drüskelle and cut out his heart. but nina, on her voyages in ravka, looks into the eyes of the fjerdan boys she wants to spare—the same as matthias’, but with none of the warmth—and remembers what his blood looked like on her hands. imagines that the blood of these boys would look the same against the snow. listens to the strange new power churning murkily at her fingertips and thinks, it would be so easy. in the darkest parts of the night she wraps herself in furs and imagines he breathes next to her. smiles through her tears and vows revenge not in the form of flesh and bone but in forgiveness —it’s painful, but she tries for him. there has been enough. 

wherever she is, she pretends the lights are for him.

inej remembers the boy who had been taught hate and remembers the kindness he learnt instead. the boy who treated her with respect from the beginning, who found she was a storm and admired her for it. inej thinks of his strength; his unwavering presence and calm in the face of peril. remembers him whenever the ocean breeze brings the scent of snow and ice to her, and when she nestles in the roots of the tree in the garden of the van eck mansion, wondering if he found his god. sees cherry blossoms and thinks of him. 

when the sun rises, and she is the only one on deck, she whispers a prayer. keep him safe. 

the sight of matthias’ corpse is burned into jesper’s memory, awkward and ungainly, lying too still in the barge. he holds wylan a little tighter at night. brushes hair away from inej’s face, tucks his arm against nina’s shoulders, teases kaz. tells his father he loves him with more seriousness than the situation probably deserves. is left feeling hollow and slightly off-balance. jesper thinks of the conversation that seems an age away. ‘my ghost won’t associate with your ghost,’ matthias whispers. first he laughs, but this time, he’s not surprised by the fierce, sudden ache of tears. jesper doesn’t sleep that night. finds solace in a gambling den.

later, he pushes away the cards and storms out. let’s the rain fall on his face. strangely, it tastes like salt. 

wylan finds his hands tremble at strange times. he sees a flash of blond hair and a long stride and whips around, blindly hoping that he defied everything just one more time—but every time it’s a member of the stadwatch, or the appleseller’s son. he knows how many times matthias saved his life, saved jesper’s. saved everyone. he holds it in to the point of breaking, before it rushes out in a flood—i wish i knew him better, he didn’t deserve to die, we were all supposed to make it jes, we were all supposed to make it— 

of everyone, wylan thinks matthias deserved to be happy a little longer. 

and kaz sits alone in his old office at the slat when everyone else is asleep or face-first in their cups. pours himself some whiskey and lets it burn down his throat. drinks a silent toast. an apology. because it’s his fault, isn’t it? they had believed they had won. he had believed. more fool you, he thinks bitterly. watches the birds veer and turn in the sky. knocks ink bottles over another forgery and finds himself standing amidst the wreckage of a broken room. thinks he should have fought a little harder. thinks he shouldn’t have let go so fast.

 no one dares to comment he looks too tired for someone so young. 


far away, on the shores on fjerda, the snow begins to fall heavier and thicker. the wind picks up. 

the wolves howl.

Loki’s Future

some random thoughts/meta after watching Ragnarok (a good ass film™️)

- After watching Ragnarok, I was struck by how similar in appearance Loki is to Hela. Same slim face and build, same pale skin, and even the same black hair. They both prefer blades to fight with and magic to communicate with. Hell, their wardrobe color schemes even match. This raised some questions for me when I was watching the film; why this deliberate choice, and how much does Loki’s appearance have an effect on how Odin treats him, in this film and others? Thor is Hela’s sister, yet we’ve seen that Odin treats Thor very, very differently to Hela and later Loki. Does Loki with his black hair and magic just remind Odin too much of his own shitty decisions? It would explain a lot about why he acts like such a dick to Loki, even when Loki was a child and not killing anyone (as far as we know haha, that kid coulda done anything)

- But there’s gotta be more to it than that. The similarities in appearance may well be Taika’s nod to the original Norse myths, but it occurred to me that it’s way too obvious a similarity, and could be pointing to something a little more complex. In the original myths, Hela is actually Loki’s daughter. Coincidence? I think not! Add this to the fact that in the mythology Loki also has a son, a gigantic wolf called Fenrir, who we also see in Ragnarok, I think there’s plenty of evidence pointing to the fact that Loki has some greater importance and connection to Asgard, running deeper than him simply being a Jotun war prize. For me it’s just too much of a coincidence that Hela and Loki are a) strongly connected in the source material b) have strongly similar appearances, fighting styles and love for chaos (to a certain extent, their characters are similar) and c) are both ‘children’ of Odin. On one of Loki’s bad days, you could call them twins. Why though? It’s been reeeeally bugging me, but I just can’t work out a direct connection, or reason as to why Hela’s character had to be built to resemble Loki.

- One answer to this is a theory I read that Loki is in fact Hela’s son. (Yeah, I know, that sounds deranged when you think about it.) The timelines align such that Hela could very easily have invaded Jotunheim with Odin before Loki’s birth. There she could have had, through some means or other, a child with Laufey, and then later abandoned it due to ‘weakness’. So… a hybrid. Loki even has black hair when he’s in his Jotun form, and that’s really fucking unusual - no other frost giant is even similar - he LOOKS like a hybrid of Hela and Laufey. Although there’s a few things off about this theory, and the MCU will probably never confirm or go into enough detail about it, AND it also makes Loki Thor’s nephew (!!!wtf!) AND Odin would have also have to have known about it the whole time (albeit explaining his behaviour), it does give reason and a cause to the weird connection and similarities between the two.

- Loki and the Tesseract. Ooooooooohhh my god. So we basically KNOW that he has it, as although we don’t see him take it in Ragnarok, it’s strongly implied, and he also is literally holding it in the leaked trailer for Infinity War. (I appreciate that some ppl don’t want to watch the leaked trailer, but it confirms he has it) Why is this important? The Tesseract is an Infinity Stone. It has power Loki knows how to use, and he’s one of the few that do. What’s Infinity War about? Infinity Stones, and Thanos. The same Thanos who’s on the hunt for Loki AND the Tesseract. I honestly don’t think Loki’s taken it for some world domination shit this time round, I think he’s taken it for power and leverage. He’s acting intelligently and planning far ahead. This is given extra gravity when you remember that Loki is the only one in the Infinity War lineup who has met and knows Thanos, and that honestly did not go well for Loki at all.

- (On a side note, I just want to talk about Loki and Thanos; it’s been theorised/discussed for ages that Thanos met Loki in the void after his fall from Asgard in Thor 1, and gave him a deal: the mission of capturing Earth, finding the Tesseract, and the tools to do so. Now, Loki’s not really one to make deals unless he can subvert them, and so the whole way through Avengers his motives for attack to me seemed uncharacteristically illogical, although I can understand his primal emotional reasons for wanting to rule. But we also saw him looking very, very ill at the beginning of that film and in the Thor 1 credits scene, and being in obvious pain - he looked like a damn meth addict. Some fans have also noted that his eyes look blue during some scenes in Avengers, like he’s being mind controlled. I completely agree with this theory: that Thanos, recognising Loki’s power, tortured him, (with heat and fire, because how else do you torture a Jotun? It explains his appearance and injuries) and mind controlled him to enact the events of Avengers. And everything that happens thereafter in the MCU makes soooo much more sense when you think about it from the torture perspective. It explains a lot about the ‘big picture’ behind all of Loki’s decisions since. He has angered the most powerful man in the universe twice: failing in giving Thanos the Tesseract, AND remaining alive.

- Which brings me back to my point - Loki is the only one who has any possible comprehension of what’s coming, so taking the Tesseract easily interprets as him acting impulsively for reasons of his own safety, and possibly the safety of those around him (he takes it after his ‘redemption’ arc). I think he still has some kind of connection or knowledge of Thanos’ presence, maybe from torture, and he can sense when shit is about to go down - and we see the beginning of it going down at the end of Ragnarok. He’s also keeping his possession of it a secret, and for obvious reasons. Knowing he’d just taken the same item that he screwed everything up for last time would completely ruin his new trust-bond ‘redemption’ arc with Thor (I kinda hate using the word redemption tho - it’s obvious from Dark World that that’s not what Loki wants or really cares about) so, he’s going to use it in some kind of bamboozle, dodgy deal, Loki-esque interaction in the future .

- I really really reeaallllyy hope they don’t just turn Loki ‘back’ into a villain in IW. It would be an insult his character and the character work Taika’s done in Ragnarok. At this point it’s weak, cheap and easy character development and a trope that’s extremely overplayed. However, HOWEVER. It would equally break my heart to see him fall completely into the other side - the role of martyrdom, righteousness and self-sacrifice in IW. We already have dozens of characters who do that, and what makes Loki more loved than all of them is that he can do both - when and how he acts is fascinating to watch. He’s every inch a chaotic neutral, and I hope so much that Marvel keeps it like that. He survives because he has no morals, likes to play both sides and he’s smart about it. It makes him compelling, godamnit.

- With Tom’s movie contract and the amount of times they’ve ‘killed’ him off already, it’s looking likely he’ll survive Infinity War. (Not looking so good for Thor though 😭IW is seriously gonna kill me too)

- Some more mythology stuff… Although in the MCU Loki’s plot usefulness is as more of a ‘bad guy’ and not he’s not a central enough character to justify such an in depth plotline, there are plenty more things the myths can give him. For example, his own honest relationships, outside of Asgard’s influence. Loki has most likely experienced a much wider range of people, creatures and places in the universe than average. He’s got lots of little secrets tucked away. For example, in mythology he has another son, called Jormungand, a giant serpent. Not likely J will ever make it to the screen though, sadly. I think that the serpent shapeshifting story in Ragnarok was perhaps a nod to that. So was Odin’s 6-legged horse Sleipnir, another of Loki’s sons.

Secondly, and of greater interest to me: in the myths, Loki has a wife called Sigyn, the goddess of intelligence. (I love her already…) with whom he has these strange animalistic (likely shapeshifting) children. Now, I know IW is really too late along his storyline to be introducing someone like Sigyn, let alone as a love interest, but god damn would it be awesome if they did. Maybe it’s just me, but I think it would be truly satisfying and also extremely entertaining to see Loki get himself a girl. Superhero movies are so often plagued by the oppressive American binary of good and evil, wherein the good guy always gets the girl, and the villain is always miserable. Seeing Loki, (a character who we know consciously does bad things and fits very well the evil stereotype, but does good things as well, and plays both sides entirely to his own benefit) get the typical stamp of a good guy would make for a more interesting, rule-breaking plot. Please, MCU, don’t let Loki fall into this binary! Let him be both! It’s what made him so extremely damn popular! that and the fact that he’s smart and funny and Tom is extremely fucking hot lol

- I also really wanna see a bit more of his magical abilities - in his villain role so far we’ve been shown he’s smarter than half the MCU, extremely skilled in in magic and combat with knives, he can teleport, he can create illusions, he can fuck with people’s heads and more. His Valkyrie knife standoff scene was interesting in Ragnarok - I’m 100% sure he deliberately lost to Valkyrie to gain access to her memories- but Thor mentioned something way more interesting: Loki is a shapeshifter. And a really good one; he’s basically in a constant shift from Jotun to Asgardian. But to animals? That’s really fucking cool, and the snake story shows how easily he can hide in plain sight. (Y’all can get the cat!Loki y’all have always wanted.) Idk I just really wanna see more of what he can do. I think further abilities/aspects of his fighting style and personality will be revealed in future though, because having the Tesseract and knowing Thanos makes him into a major plot point for IW.

- lastly can I just say I’m really digging the 80s/rock soundtrack aesthetic Marvel is pushing for

- and the c i n e m a t o g r a p h y!! Got damn.

- just protect him please for the love of all that is holy.

- That is all. Thanks for reading my ramblings. Xxxx.

Well… at least one of my council involved AU Ricks is the sort who believes in the citadel.

Highlights from AJ LoCascio and Neil Kaplan Let's Voltron Podcast
  • Neil and AJ praise the animation on this show
  • Neil sometimes gets so sucked into the series as he watches it on TV, he goes, “Oh yeah! I’m on it, too!” 
  • Neil teases AJ by saying that one of the reasons why he enjoyed this season is that he enjoyed listening to AJ’s Lotor voice and can see why all of the fangirls love it. (AJ gets bashful at this part) 
  • Neil loved seeing the scenes between him and AJ in context. AJ says the same thing. 
  • AJ loves the interaction between Lotor and Zarkon since you get a sense that they both know the other is lying, so no one is fooling anyone. Seeing their relationship play out is so much for him to see
  • AJ says that Neil’s voice is awesome. 
  • When AJ was 16, his mother kicked him out of the house. (He never gave a reason why his mother did that or went into detail outside of that.) He does claim it was a “blessing in disguise.” Because of that experience, AJ says that Lotor being ordered to killed on sight and seeking out the paladins may be a blessing in disguise, so Lotor can find who he truly is.  
  • When asked if Lotor knows if Honerva is Haggar, AJ says he can’t give it away. But then he and Neil joke around about the answer some more, saying that it could all be a dream. (From what I can gather, that answer is a spoiler, so we could be getting some more insight about that down the line) 
  •  Zarkon isn’t ignoring Lotor after hearing about the comet. Zarkon dismissed Lotor at first, but now he knows about the ships, he’s putting an end to it any way possible. 
  •  Lotor might use the comet as a bargaining chip for the paladins
  • If Lotor was a paladin, he would be the Purple Paladin and be Voltron’s hat 
  • When asked about what got in between Zarkon and Lotor, AJ and Neil joke that Lotor used “clackers” and Lotor listened to a lot of emo music
  • Neil thinks Zarkon should take a vacation in order to reassess about how he’s gonna go after Voltron and that he’s doing too much himself thanks to his generals letting him down
  • Zarkon would remove Lotor with puppets (I think Neil’s joking about this…?) 
  • Unfortunately, the show is such a well oiled machine, so Neil and AJ haven’t talked with each other outside of saying lines in the booth as much they would like.  If that was the case, Neil is sure that he would be picking up as much VAing knowledge as visa versa 
  • The only thing that Neil taught AJ is, “Don’t eat all of the sandwiches from Portos.”(Neil explains that’s a bakery near their workplace) 
  • The only way for Zarkon to accept Lotor is if he delivered Voltron to him
  • If they were in an RPG, Lotor would be an elf and Zarkon would be a tank or a wizard
  • When AJ saw the part where Lotor dislocates his shoulders for the first time when he was recording that part, he screamed. 
  • The reason why Lotor is able to do that is likely due to mixed genetics and the fact that he was in a life and death situation, not really caring that he was hurt
  • Lotor isn’t that bothered by Zarkon training Sendak now, but he was when he was little
  •  AJ once whacked his head on the Blue Lion (There’s life-sized models of the lions in the studio) 
  • There was a time where Neil was with all of the major VAs in the booth and went, “Oh that’s who you are.” He can’t go into detail outside of that. (So, what caused that is a spoiler, pretty much. Maybe Zarkon interacts with the paladins in the future?)
  • Neil is more musically inclined since he did musical theater, but AJ can play the harmonica
  •  AJ thinks Zarkon and Lotor’s relationship like Loki and Odin’s from the MCU along with Ozai and Zuko/Azula from Avatar. 
  • Neil thinks their like Henry and Christian from Moulin Rouge, Mario and Luigi from The Super Mario Brothers Movie (They were father and son in that movie unlike the games…at least that’s what I got from online reviews of that movie)  and Eddie and Roger Rabbit from Who Framed Roger Rabbit along with some characters from Lion in Winter (Not sure which ones since he listed off some actors instead of characters) 
  • Lotor’s favourite holiday is Halloween since he would love scaring everybody at a haunted house in his home. (As a side note, someone needs to make a modern AU about this) 
  • Neil also added, “Lotor also loves Halloween so he can dress up as Pidge–his favourite paladin.” 
  • Zarkon’s favourite holiday would be Thanksgiving
  • Zarkon’s favourite food at Thanksgiving would be the Quintessence Stuffing and onion rings.
  • Lotor never gave his dad a “Number One Dad” mug
  • AJ used to watch Leave it to Beaver a lot as a child
  • Zarkon is a smooth jazz kinda guy 
  • The one thing Lotor and Zarkon can agree on is that Jazz is better then Death Metal

  • Neil sang a song on air and unfortunately AJ didn’t
  • Galra teens in the empire would say, “Vrepit sa, dude!” according to them
  • Lotor would get along with Keith and Allura the best since they have similar backgrounds.
  •  AJ added, “Kimberly and I get along very well, so art might intimate life.”
  • Neil thinks Lotor and Keith will get along the best. 
  • AJ agreed, saying that Keith may bring out the good in Lotor and ground him.
  •  AJ teases that Hunk could bring out the more “human” side of Lotor and food brings everyone together.
  • Neil thinks Lotor’s ex generals would make for an awesome girl band
  • Neil thinks that the Galra Empire doesn’t get enough credit for being inclusive towards women

There were probably some other points I’ve missed, but those were the major ones I caught on to…

Open to Interpretation

This was probably not anything like you anticipated but I fell in love! Okay! I can’t apologize for this sap!

——————————————————

             Draco paced the hallway angrily and a little worriedly. It was just like Potter to make him wait. The bloody git couldn’t have the decency to show up on time. Normally, he wouldn’t worry about the Gryffindor, but the Daily Prophet had reported six sightings of wanted Death Eaters that hadn’t been round up yet. Sure, they weren’t comparable to the Dark Lord, and the savior had gotten rid of him, but still.

               He checked the time once more before sighing heavily. Draco was already late for Charms, but he couldn’t bring himself to care. Not when Harry had been so determined to leave over the weekend for some mysterious reason.

               They didn’t usually have secrets from each other, but the brunette had begged and pleaded that whatever was going on needed to be kept hidden for now. Unfortunately for Draco, those blasted green eyes would always shatter his resolve. What made it worse was that Harry knew this too. It was almost as if the Gryffindor was a Slytherin in disguise.

               Another look around the area had him sighing heavily. He ignored the curious gaze from the portrait of the Fat Lady. This was the best spot to wait for the Gryffindor.

               The sound of thundering feet had Draco snapping his head up. Harry’s smiling face coming up the stairs had him relaxing, until he caught sight of the man’s hands. They were badly burned, so much so that he knew they would scar. Cuts adorned his arms and dried blood could be seen as well.

               “What happened?” Draco nearly screeched, causing the Fat Lady to look at him in admiration as her glass cup shattered. His mind was cycling through hundreds of theories but each one was deadlier than the last.

               Before Harry could speak, Draco marched to him angrily, hands clenching at his sides. “It was a Death Eater, wasn’t it? Which one was it? I’ll kill them.”

               “Draco—” Harry seemed to be amused but Draco was inclined to think that his boyfriend was going into shock.

               “No, really. Which one did this? The Ministry won’t know if I use someone else’s wand.” That much he was certain of. He wasn’t the son of Lucius Malfoy for no reason. 

               “No, Draco—”

               “Are you okay? Have you taken any healing potions?” He rummaged through his bags, pulling out spare vials that he had made last week. Severus had instilled the belief that it was wise to always be prepared.

               Harry sighed before taking the few potions that were handed to him. Draco watched with narrowed eyes, making sure the other man swallowed every drop.

               “Here, this is a healing salve too. I wouldn’t add any dittany to this because my salve already has some in it, and we wouldn’t want a double dose.” Instead of allowing the Gryffindor to apply it himself, Draco decided to be a nice boyfriend and do it for him. He really should be credited more often. 

               When he looked up to interrogate Harry, he faltered at the adoration in green eyes. Draco wasn’t good at saying what he was feeling, and his heart was silently voicing a lot of things right now. He was just happy they were silent at the moment. “Are you going to tell me who hurt you?”

               “No one hurt me.” Harry whispered, still staring at him softly. “I sort of did this to myself.”

               Draco blinked rapidly, not liking the sound of this at all. “Pardon me?” It seemed nice enough, but his tone was demanding an explanation.

               “Um.” Harry flushed before looking to the ground. “I wanted to get you a gift, but you could buy anything you want. So, I thought that I would make you something instead.”

               Draco refused to be incredibly touched by this. It did however take him a few times to get his mouth working.

               “Harry.”

               “No.” Harry shook his head rapidly. “You’re always getting me little things and I love them all. I just wanted to return the favor. So, I looked around for a muggle course I could take over the weekend.”

               Draco wanted to wince at the fact that these injuries happened at some kind of muggle event, but he was still caught up with his boyfriend being utterly sappy.

               “It was a glass blowing course. It’s definitely not something I will be doing again. I’m too clumsy for it all. Not to mention, it’s kind of dangerous if not done correctly.”

               He wanted to point out that it was obvious that Harry hadn’t done it correctly if his hands were this injured but now was not the right time to tease.

               Harry scratched his head nervously before reaching into his bag and pulling out something. It was clearly glass but the shape itself was making it hard to decipher what it was supposed to resemble. There was a mixture of colors spread all throughout and it fascinated Draco.  

               “It looks like shite.” Harry continued shaking his head sadly. “But it took so long. You have no idea.”

               It didn’t matter that he couldn’t tell if it was a flobberworm or a disfigured Hippogriff, Harry had made it with his own hands and Draco loved it.

               “You made this?” He whispered reverently, gently cradling the glass thing to his chest. No one had ever given so much thought for a gift to him before. 

               “Yeah.” Harry wouldn’t quite meet his eyes. “I just wanted to show you how much you—”

               “I love you.” Draco whispered, wishing that he had been able to get the courage to say this sooner.

               Harry’s eyes snapped to his, they were wide but awed. As if he hadn’t thought that Draco could love him. Foolish Gryffindor.

               “You—I—oh.” Harry stepped closer until they were almost chest to chest, glass object being the only thing separating them.

               “I love you too, Draco.” Harry choked out, eyes roaming Draco’s face, as if he was mesmerized by what he saw there.

               Before Draco could say anything, his lips were captured in a soft but passionate kiss. He tilted his head to the side to deepen the kiss. In the background, he could hear the Fat Lady sniffling and whispering about ‘young love’ but he was far more interested in Harry. Especially when a tongue tangled with his own.

               “What the hell is that?” Theodore asked, brows arching as he looked to the thing on Draco’s nightstand.

               “It looks like a Centaur.” Blaise pointed out, squinting his eyes to see if that changed what it looked like.

               “Centaurs don’t have five legs.” Greggory grunted, scrunching up his face in thought.

               “Those are legs?” Theo countered disbelievingly. “I kind of thought it was supposed to be a ball of rubbish.”

               “Excuse you.” Draco’s cold tone had them all straightening. “Harry gave me that as a present.”

               “He wouldn’t have happened to have mentioned what it is supposed to be, did he?” Wondered Blaise as he shot a dubious look at the glass object.

               “It’s an insightful expression of art. Which as you all know is open to interpretation.”

                There was a brief silence before, “You have no idea what it is, do you?” Asked Theo, folding his arms across his chest.

               Draco opened his mouth to lie, but their unimpressed stares had him choosing to be truthful. “No, I have no idea what it’s supposed to be.”

               He ignored the way Blaise snorted in delight. “But it’s beautiful, isn’t it?” Draco smiled softly at his present. The fact that Harry made it himself still had him feeling like an utter sap.

               Theo and Blaise shared an incredulous look. It wasn’t until Greg cracked his knuckles threateningly that they quickly nodded.

               “Yeah. It sure is beautiful.” Theo hurried to say, keeping a wary eye on Greg.

               “Mhm.” Blaise added. “Everyone will be jealous.” He winced a little at the worry that he was laying it on too thick.

               “They should be.” Draco declared haughtily, running a finger along the glass once before turning around and heading out of the room.

               If only everyone was as lucky as he was to have his own Harry.
