i love our planet

Planet Au

Ok, so it’s a mix of sailor moon, and Roman Mythology I guess? Think Cardverse, but planets So each one of our lovely characters represents a planet/star/moon. They each have powers associated with that planet/star/God that shares that planet’s namesake
So all of them are the rulers of their planet.

Alfred-the Sun. Fire-based powers, “Ruler” of the Solar System (in the sense that he’s the head of of table, and gives the final say in decisions, but they all play an
equal part) Since the Sun is actually straight fire there’s like a “loading doc’” where visitors are doused in “special you-can-stand-the-Sun’s-heat” magic, that thew citizens and of course Alfred posses. Alfred also has the power to make this magic permanent.

Arthur-The Moon. Water-based powers. Watches over the Earth, since it’s inhabitants tend to cause trouble. His kingdom’s “dark side” is shrouded In mystery.

Mercury-Yao-The intellectual. Yao is super well-versed, and houses history. He’s the messenger, and can record, and send messages, as well as move super quickly

Venus-Francis love-based powers. In every aspect so that includes all types of love.

Earth-The Italy twins. Most pleasant place to visit. They are very good at adapting, and are basically the Cardverse equivalent of the Jokers.

Mars-Gilbert. The war “god” supplies weapons, provides the highest level of military training, manufacturing powerhouse.

[These Upcoming planets have floating civilizations due to their planets’ gas nature]

Jupiter-Ivan. Weather-based powers. Provides weather for the planets.

Neptune-Kiku, ocean-based powers. Very innovative, provides technology.

Uranus- Ludwig, sky-based powers. The diplomat. The organizer. Helps keep the Solar System running smoothly.

Saturn-Ukraine, farm and nature-based powers. Provides food.

Pluto-François. Basically the grim reaper. Every planet gets a visit from him when it’s time to collect the dead.

Jeep Smut pt 2

Shawn Mendes 
Words; 2,200 
by, like, everyone at this point 
Note; Well this was a journey  😄 Also, not the best ending, but by this point I’ve been working for about 12 hours (pretty much straight) on this damn thing  😄 Oh, and here’s part 1 in case you haven't read it yet! 

“God, how does Que put up with these things?” Alex groaned as she kicked off her heels, bringing her knees to rest under her chin. From the corner of my eyes, I caught sight of the hem of her dress sliding higher up her thigh, and it took all the strength in me not to just pull over and fuck her senseless. 

Alex seemed to read my mind, a small grin flirting on her lips, “I’ve got you good, haven’t I?”

“Wait, you knew what you were doing?” I turned to her for a mini second.

Nodding, her giggles sent my heart racing as she hid the ever-growing smile behind her leg, “Why do you think Que let me borrow this dress?”

My mouth worked but I had no words.

Knuckles turning white, I gripped the wheel tightly, trying to push past my feelings and focus on the road. But Alex just loved making this hard for me. Ever so gently, her fingers danced along my arm, goose bumps forming on the skin as she grabbed my hand. She brought my hand to her lips, taking her time to kiss each knuckle. I inhaled sharply as she guided my hand up her bare leg, the tips of my fingers brushing along the hem.

Just a few more minutes.

We hit the woods at the edge of the city. The sun was already beginning to set, snippets of the pink and orange sky filtering through the clusters of tall trees. Alex rolled down her window more, letting the warm summer air into the car. It would have been romantic, if I wasn’t so God damn desperate.

Once I thought we were deep enough into the woods that no one would find us, I pulled over into a familiar lay-by overlooking a picnic area with a large lake. Cutting off the engine, we both unbuckled ourselves. I reached over to Alex, totally ready to drag her into my lap, but she didn’t seem to think the same. Instead she flashed me a smile before getting out the car.

Closing my eyes, my head fell against my chair as I took a deep breath through my nose, trying to compose myself. I swear she was trying to kill me.

I slammed the car door shut, walking across the grass towards Alex who sat on an old picnic table. Soft sun reflected off the water, casting a warm glow on her face.

Joining her on the table, I opened my arm for her. Instinctively, she curled into me, the little peck she pressed against my neck sending tingles down my spine. Her head fell onto my shoulder, small wisps of hair tickling my nose as I kissed the crown of her head.

“It’s really pretty here,” She mumbled softly, smiling at the small group of ducks swimming around the far end of the lake.

“You know what’s prettier?” She shrugged, “You.”

Her whole face blushed an adorable shade of red as my lips brushed the sensitive spot behind her ear, nipping at the skin to make her laugh, “Shut up.”

The ducks started quacking in the distance, the leaves on the tree rustling as the wind passed through them. It was quiet out here. It felt nice to get away from the loud city, even if it was only for a few hours.

“Granddad used to bring Aaliyah and me out here every summer,” I blurted out, not really sure why, “He would try and teach us to fish, but we were more interested in climbing the trees. I haven’t been here in so long.”

“We could bring our own kids here in the future. Maybe not to fish, but for like picnics or something.” My laughter caught her attention. Her grin growing as she turned to gaze up at me with dreamy eyes.

I couldn’t help but smile back, “I’d like that.”

The Originals new episode

Okay, so I don’t care what all the others think, but I will have to say it: This episode is a brilliant work, and Charles Michael Davis is a genius! I am so amazed and impressed by this episode, that I can’t even tell. This is a beautiful artwork, I can’t even handle. This is the BEST episode ever, and this TV show is the most wonderful in the history of our planet. I am in love with this whole episode, it was so touching and well directed, and the actors - our precious actors - did an amazing work too. I am shocked and happy and glad and impressed all at once… This show is nothong less but amazing. Tonight’s episode was breathtaking, heartmelting and an art…

Weekly Voltron Fic Recs #28

Rules: You can find past weekly rec lists here, and non-list recs in my general fic rec tag. This is stuff I like, and I have a huge bias toward Lance, hurt/comfort, and general fluff, in that order. Gen unless otherwise noted. Please comment on the fics if you read and enjoy them!

Secret of the Blood by exclamation
Words: 30,685 (WIP 13/?)
Author’s Summary: AU version of season 2. When Keith and Shiro were thrown from the wormhole, they crashed by the Blade of Marmora headquarters and were captured. When the Blade reveal the secret of Keith’s heritage, Keith must decide if he can trust these people… and if he can trust himself.
My Comments: Really well-written canon-divergence AU. I love all the things that change because Keith meets the Blade of Marmora before he and Shiro can warm up to the idea of there being good Galra out there through Ulaz. It makes a HUGE difference, for them and for everyone else as well, and I love the way the idea is being explored.

The Color Of Our Planet From Far Far Away by LonelyGirlInSpace
Words: 13,942 (WIP 3/?)
Author’s Summary: A story in which Lance and the team has a lot of difficulties, because they don’t sleep and sometimes make poor choices as a result and others are forced to suffer more than they deserve due to those poor choices. Or Lance gets hurt because the team didn’t listen and everyone desperately wants to fix it.
My Comments: Lance is a little too perfect and the rest of the team is a little too mean for my tastes, at least in the first chapter, but this is a well-written and poignant hurt/comfort fic, and it’s gen, and the third chapter almost made me cry, and I’m very, very hooked. Can’t wait for more.

with quiet words I’ll lead you in by strikinglight for goukyorin (sashimisusie)
Words: 5,216
Author’s Summary: “You were screaming,” Keith tells him. “I heard you through the wall. ”That wall, Lance wants to point out, is supposed to be soundproof. It shouldn’t let you hear anything, no matter how hard you listen. What he says instead is “I can’t breathe.” “Take it slow.” Keith’s voice is steady, but as Lance’s eyes struggle to focus his face is a blur. The image goes shaky and then comes clear, shaky then clear, like looking into water. “Pretend it’s low tide. Tell me about the ocean again.”
My Comments: Klance, but reads platonic to me. Really lovely hurt/comfort fic about kids caught in a war far, far away from home.

Disappear Completely by Bandity
Words: 7,053
Author’s Summary: Lance knew something was wrong with him. He thought it would pass on its own eventually, but as time went on, and the pain continued, he realized that something inside of him must be very broken.
My Comments: Possibly my favorite fic this week. So far I’ve read it three times. Lance’s trauma is so awful and visceral, and the aftermath is realistic and carefully handled. There are no easy solutions, but things do get better, and everyone is doing their best to help.

Space Mall Take 2 by CondensationOnGlass
Words: 3,618
Author’s Summary: Shiro won’t stand for the Paladins looking like no-good troublemakers. And with the Galra Empire so spread out and with such a gripping hold, they may need more than what they have. And for some reason the mall seems like the place to get it. And it seems like a great place to have more trouble pop up. Aka: Where Shiro has to play the big brother and apologize for the others making a great big damn mess, and nearly has another one on his hands for picking today of all days to do it.
My Comments: Equal parts comedy and hurt/comfort, and a joy to read throughout. Poor Lance.

Nomenclature by Awkwardly_social
Words: 7,885
Author’s Summary: It took almost five months to find Lance after the wormhole. And when they finally do, they’re stuck on the planet until the castle can come get them. Lance takes the opportunity to teach the team a little about the planet and a little bit about himself along the way.
My Comments: Lance has had a rough time, and the gradual way the others find out is really well-handled. Plus the worldbuilding is just really neat. Also read the sequel for some great aftermath and Lance with PTSD.

It Is Enough by nadagio 
Words: 1,020
Author’s Summary: Nowhere near close to finding Shiro and uncertain what he should do now, Lance spends some quiet time with the Blue Lion.
My Comments: Really sweet fic with Blue helping Lance deal with his grief and figure out what to do next.

mostly void, partially stars by dakhtar
Words: 9,403 (WIP 3/?)
Author’s Summary: Werewolves can’t be astronauts,” Derek’s annoying voice had grumped. “Werewolves can’t be pilots. Werewolves can’t be fighter jet pilots, Lance, for God’s sake, Werewolves can’t pilot giant space robot cats that join together to become a giant space robot man and fight an evil purple bat-cat empire!” Well, he hadn’t said that last part, but Derek totally would’ve. (Alt title: seawolf)
My Comments: Teen Wolf crossover, but I haven’t seen a single episode of that show and I’m enjoying this fic very much. The worldbuilding is really cool, and I love this take on Lance and the relationships he wants and needs and is trying to build.

Going Up! by Olive_theCat
Words: 2,373 (WIP 1/?)
Author’s Summary: When Sendak is chosen over Shiro to pilot the main engine test of the new Kerberos shuttle, he’s got to take up an offer that Matt gives him: To be a camp counselor at the Galaxy Garrison summer program!Of course, herding five super-smart teenagers through some simulated astronaut training can’t be all that bad, right? What could go wrong? Well, with the help of a malfunctioning little robot named Beezer towards the end of the summer…It turns out a lot can.SpaceCamp AU (movie and real life), constructive critisism is welcome!
My Comments: Space Camp was one of those movies I watched over and over as a kid, and I can’t wait to see what my favorite space kids do in that setting. The author is having a lot of fun with it, and I am too.

Trust Fall by Pidgeon_Online
Words: 2,869
Author’s Summary: Pidge usually dealt with her issues on her own. No one needed to be bothered with her problems when she could easily deal with them herself. Especially when it came to this. There was no way she would ask anyone for help with this. Because she was fine. She didn’t need help.or
Pidge definitely needs help before her body turns completely against her.
My Comments: Poor Pidge, but I wish I had a whole team of adorable boys trying to help when I felt like this, so also not poor Pidge at all, I am jealous.

Uninvited Guest by YukiSkyes
Words: 3,375
Author’s Summary: The most interesting stories about Glasycus Mountain, said to be the gateway between Earth and the Abyss, were the ones about the black dragon that guards it. There was no end to the people stupid enough to try to find Shiro and Keith would do anything to protect him and help hide his existence. One evening, Keith comes home to someone already inside.
My Comments: This is the first of a series of nine stories so far, with the paladins in a fantasy AU, some of them not human anymore. It’s really fun, a lot of great worldbuilding, and some great character interactions. I’m really enjoying it, and I subscribed to the series.

The Once and Future Snore by hufflepirate
Words: 980
Author’s Summary: Allura and Coran think about the past. Coran can’t figure out how to tell Shiro he’s as welcome to affection as all the younger paladins. Everybody ends up in the same nap pile anyway. (Note: Everybody (on the main team) is in this, but I only individually tagged the people who do something besides trap Coran in the middle of a nap pile while he’s too asleep to know how they got there.)
My Comments: Absolutely ADORABLE cuddle puddle fic focused around Coran. And can I note how wonderful it is that cuddle puddle fic is practically a genre in this fandom? Because it is.

The Home You Make by rednight16 for psyraah
Words: 1,304
Author’s Summary: Sometimes the ones that end up close to you are the people that you least expect.
My Comments: It’s so wonderful for Shiro to have friends who he is not responsible for, who can just talk to him as adults and have conversations that don’t have anything to do with saving the world. Yet another reason I would have been happy to have Thace and Ulaz stick around on the show.

shades of blue by behestha
Words: 1,104
Author’s Summary: Eventually, Shiro’s scales reach a tipping point. OR the one where Shiro has a panic attack and Lance gently helps him.
My Comments: I love these two supporting each other in any situation, and this is lovely. Hinted Shance at the end, but reads as gen to me.

Trap by macShitFuck
Words: 1,272
Author’s Summary: Alt title: Hell or High Water You don’t consider the amount of pain and panic an animal must go through when they’re caught in a leghold trap until you’re in one yourself.
My Comments: Oh man, Hunk whump. This is brutal, but I love how he tries to calm Lance down even while he’s in horrible pain.

Turnabout is Fair Play by CondensationOnGlass for taylor_tut
Words: 7,623 (WIP 2/?)
Author’s Summary: Iconic pranks, blistering fevers, and fair play.Or, where some of the Paladins pull a joke and then get slammed with guilt about 8 hours later, and for others it is much more immediate.Based off a tumblr post by @taylor-tut. Might change the title. Multichapter, and in progress. I’m slow to update.
My Comments: Probably my second favorite fic on this list, and yes, I read what’s available twice already. It’s a very indulgent kind of hurt/comfort that I adore, and I can’t wait for more. The prank the others pull on Lance really was harmless and cute more than anything, but he just happened to be in the middle of developing a terrifying and dangerous fever, so yeah. There’s some guilt there, poor babies.

Swallow the Sun by valkyriered
Words: 1,934
Author’s Summary: Shiro has a panic attack. Kolivan tells him a story. Very background Shiro/Ulaz.
My Comments: The worldbuilding here is freaking GORGEOUS, holy smokes. Just read it.

Defying the Odds by Mists
Words: 13,562 (4/?)
Author’s Summary: *Voltron Season 3 AU* Also known as: The Continuing Adventures of Space Dad Cat! Let’s just say, a certain cockpit is not quite as empty as the paladins believe… “Highly improbable. Especially for this reality,” he haughtily said with a self important air. “The odds of which being: one trillion, seven billion, eight hundred thousand, point three, two, eight, five-” SLAV! New chapter now up! The Voltron Paladins play “Dungeons and Dragons!” Poor Hunk tries to save his campaign from Lance and Pidge. While Keith and Shiro are helplessly along for the ride. Let the craziness begin! Deep character exploration. Friendship, Humor, Team as family!
My Comments: Crack alert! This story is super fun, and I’m not just saying that because the most recent chapter has the kids playing DnD with Lance as a bard and Pidge as a rogue, nope, not at all.

The Pizza One by taylor_tut
Words: 1,268
Author’s Summary: Like four people requested an AU where Lance is a pizza delivery man and delivers a pizza to the other paladins (modern, college AU) while running a very high fever. They make sure he gets taken care of.
My Comments: This author just uploaded a whole CATALOGUE of Lance sickfics, so yeah, definitely check the author profile if you’re in the mood for a whole bunch of short fics featuring Lance injured, sick, feverish, or otherwise in need of care. I certainly enjoyed reading through the whole bunch. Picking this one out as my favorite for the way the others take in lonely, sick Lance who is just working way too hard and needs someone to look out for him. I love it.

Senmō by TheOtakuWithHazelEyes
Words: 4,399
Author’s Summary: While under the effects of an alien fever, Shiro dreams of another time when he was sick. Confused and ill, he cries out for the only person he thinks can aid him- his mother. (A moment of Shiro bonding with the paladins stemming from him being sick, and a look into his thoughts.)
My Comments: Really sweet hurt/comfort for Shiro, and some backstory that is poignant and lovely.

Day at the Beach by JackieNeedsMoreSleep
Words: 1,804
Author’s Summary: The team takes the day off to go to the beach but Pidge has to deal with Lance and some other asshole’s shit.
My Comments: Really cute, fun teamfic.

Intrinsic by buttered_onions
Words: 1,219
Author’s Summary: The first time Shiro felt the Force.
My Comments: Miss Onions just writes the BEST AUs, gah. This is full of powerful moments. I’m so proud of wee Padawan Shiro.

Lost in the Fog by oldmythologies for melonbug
Words: 2,395
Author’s Summary: Each one of them gives him something on his way back to them.
My Comments: Great take on what happened to Shiro in the S2 finale and how the others get him back.

Allura’s Twelve by windscryer
Words: 2,217
Author’s Summary: The Paladins learn that while there are a great many differences between Earth and Altean culture, movie genres are not one of them. Some things are just universal.
My Comments: Cute, fluffy teamy goodness. Just a pleasure to read.

Part of the Team by wingedflower
Words: 3,785
Author’s Summary: After a training session gone terribly wrong, Lance finally reaches his breaking point. Luckily, Coran knows exactly what to say.
My Comments: I just really really really love downhearted Lance and supportive Coran, gah, just give me all of it, just pour it over me, it’s SO GOOD.

Sweets at 7am by JackieNeedsMoreSleep
Words: 1,223
Author’s Summary: Keith walks into the kitchen to find his friends baking.
My Comments: Really cute, fluffy teamfic.

Emergency Lessons by Kalira
Words: 3,210
Author’s Summary: Pidge, Lance, and Keith land in several ‘emergencies’ and pull each other through them.
My Comments: Really lovely teamfic with a trio you don’t usually see put together. The second chapter was my favorite, but it’s all absolutely delightful.

Five Times: Keith and the Dads of Marmora by EdgarAllenPoet
Words: 4,816
Author’s Summary: [Bonus, one time it literally saved his life and he really didn’t have a choice but to roll with it]. So actually, this is a 'seven times’ fic, but that doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.“ 'If you want to rest more, I will stay. You are safe.’ Keith wondered quietly how the person talking to him now was possibly the same leader he’d met at the Blade of Marmora.”
My Comments: I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. Parts are funny and parts are poignant, but it’s all good start to finish. Favorite line: “Antok, listen. Listen, Antok. They are toddlers.”

and yet by achieving elysium (Ogygia)
Words: 1,194
Author’s Summary: After the Castle of Lions is reclaimed from Sendak, Coran finds himself left alone to his thoughts— guilt and sorrow for children who do not belong in a war. written for voltron angst week on tumblr | day one: smile
My Comments: Oh man, Coran angst always gets me in the throat. Really good stuff.

7 Times They Noticed by the_unoriginal_fox
Words: 5,549 (WIP 5/7)
Author’s Summary: Lance was alright. He was happy. He was fine. Except when he wasn’t.“Listen. Are you alright?”
“Uh…are you alright?”
“Are you okay buddy?”
“Are…are you in good health, paladin?“
Are…are you okay, paladin?”
“Hey. You okay?"His team mates, his second family - they noticed.
My Comments: It’s a genfic with Lance being supported by his entire team. I love it.

The Great Escape by Eastofthemoon
Words: 2,619
Author’s Summary: Keith did not like being cold, but he hated being chased by the Galra even more.
My Comments: The latest installment in one of my favorite Voltron fanfic series. Read it all if you haven’t before.

anonymous asked:

This blog is great too! I have a question regarding a fictional earth-like planet of mine where the single large moon is not tidally locked and rotates, and seems partially made of large red quartz crystal and mars-red dust. Would it be possible for the light reflected from the red side of this moon to color the atmosphere of the planet purple-ish (at night) and lilac (in the day) if the atmosphere is the almost same as earth (save for a 30% oxygen level instead of our 21%)? Thank you!

I love weird planets and moons. As we detect and learn about more exo-planets, we keep seeing more and more weirdness and wonder in the universe. Just looking at the strange diversity amongst moons in our own Solar system (icy world-ocean Europa, fiery volcano-covered Io, hydrocarbon smog-covered Titan) shows that no two moons or planets will ever be the same.

So, in the interest of diversity, lets go all out and place a moon the size of Ganymede (the largest moon in our solar system) in orbit around our Earth-like planet. We’ll assume that the moon orbits at about the same distance as our Moon orbits Earth. We’ll take Ganymede’s shiny, icy surface and replace it with red crystals (or maybe it’s still ice, and the ice is red because of chemicals or single-celled life) and red Mars-like dust.

Ganymede is about 5200 km in diameter, making her about 1.5 times the size of the Moon. She would be large, bright, and would look very eerie with her reddish hues. Being much larger and more reflective, our Red Ganymede would shine much brighter - around 4 times as bright (about twice as bright due to size, and twice as bright again due to crystals/ice being more reflective than moon dust).

Having a red, red moon around a planet would certainly be dramatic, but would probably not change the color of the sky much at all for two reasons.

Primus, even our Red Ganymede wouldn’t be very bright compared to the Sun. The Sun is 400,000 times as bright as our Moon. It’d be about 100,000 times brighter than our Red Ganymede. There would be some slight reddening of the night sky if there were thin clouds - the clouds acting as a white cloth that the red light would shine on. During the daytime, there would be little difference between the blue skies we have now and the blue skies we’d have with Red Ganymede. Things might take on a slightly redder color, especially at night on a full moon, but the sky would still remain very similar to our sky here on Earth.

Secundus, the color of the sky has much more to do with the composition of the atmosphere than with the light coming through it. Even if our habitable planet was around a blue or very red star, the skies of an Earth-type world would still appear pretty blue. Adding a little red to the mix won’t noticeably change that.

You might see some increase in red when our Red Ganymede is rising or setting. The light from the moon is already scattered and bent because it travels a much longer path through the atmosphere. All of the blue end of the light would be scattered (and there goes more of the brightness), leaving all the red and yellow.

Of course, the fact that the human eye is only moderately sensitive to the longer, redder wavelengths means that even the little change that would occur probably wouldn’t be noticed by our meat-bag-mostly-water eyes.

The easiest way to make the sky look red is to fill it with fine particulate matter to scatter the blue light even more. A massive chemically-powered industrial civilization that pumps huge quantities of particulates into the atmosphere would do that, as would a very volcanically-active planet. Our Red Ganymede’s more powerful gravity would flex the planet’s crust and would almost certainly increase the occurrence of volcanoes.

I think that if our Earth had a Red Ganymede, it should be named Pele or  Xiuhtecuhtli. Either one would be cool.

Rucas FanFic: Heliocentrism

A/N: Several weeks ago, I posted this picture in one of my IG edits about the Friar Family. I received quite a bit of negative feedback. Most were appalled that I represented “adult” Lucas as having tattoos. Some were polite about it, some weren’t. I decided to write a one-shot that explains why he has these tattoos. I searched for hours for this photo (trust me, it was not a hardship😈🙊) because I knew they would be the perfect representation of his story. 


Heliocentrism, or heliocentricism,is the astronomical model in which the Earth and planets revolve around the Sun at the center of the Solar System. 

The Friar family is out working with their friends & neighbors cleaning up a local park one warm Saturday morning. Riley, 7 months pregnant, starts to feel a little woozy and goes to sit on a shaded bench to wait for the nausea to pass.

As she reaches down and grabs a bottle of water from her bag, she notices two older ladies sit down on the adjacent bench.

“Good Afternoon Ladies.” Riley greets them with a smile.

“Good Afternoon Miss.” They reply as they settle themselves into comfortable positions on the bench.

I'll second that Dark Heresy is lethal. Our party had trouble within seconds of landing on our first planet

I love Dark Heresy with my whole, blackened, heretical heart. I always will.

But my good golly graces is it lethal.

Here’s a real story that actually, really happened in Dark Heresy.

I once had a player playing as a Psyker, the most lethal of classes in Dark Heresy, cast a spell at a group of nearby enemies.

He rolled a 9, which results in rolling on the Psychic Phenomenon table, which makes something terrible happen due to your terrible decisions.

He rolled a 99, which results in rolling on the Perils of the Warp table, which makes something even worse happen due to your terrible decisions.

The result was Blood Rain, which causes a storm of to rain literal blood in a 50ft area around the Psyker and everyone near him.

Now, the big problem was that the power he had used was Bio-Lightning, which is an electric, life-based attack. He used it against a point-blank foe, conducting an electrical current through the blood rain. 

The player proceeded to bloodtrocute himself to death.

I love you, Dark Heresy.
