You know, I really love all those ‘Earth is Space Australia’ ideas and humans as the super tough, super unflappable space badasses who can smile in the face of any danger and who will pet absolutely anything that mostly isn’t toxic and sits still long enough. I adore them. However, sometimes I do wonder … do aliens have phobias?

Because I can’t help thinking that somewhere in this future universe there’s the one human who went to space because spaceships are relatively sterile environments and therefore in space there are less bugs*. And then one day a guest comes onto the ship and their multilegged pet comes slithering out from under their fashionable collar and suddenly from the back of the shuttle bay there’s this high-pitched, hysterical screaming. And the alien crew turn around and there is their human, their badass, amazingly tough human, the one who managed to survive with half her leg torn off that one time long enough to make it back to medbay, the one who bluffed space pirates for a full half-cycle without so much as a quiver, the one who had to be forcibly restrained from petting the nine-foot slavering hregallar on Threlanix because apparently they were 'adorable babies’ … that human, their human, is suddenly clinging to the ceiling in blatant defiance of the ship’s artificial gravity and wailing her head off in absolute terror over a pathetic little xhilitin. The tiny, stupidly harmless insects that about sixteen species keep as pets because their jewelled carapaces are lovely and decorative and they’re so dumb and harmless that they’ll cheerfully sit on your hat as an ornament from here until infinity.

So the mildly shellshocked aliens try and calm their human down and they get her to medbay and they’re asking 'are the xhilitin on Earth dangerous?’, which, probably, apparently everything on Earth is deadly, but none of it has ever terrified their human before, and their absolutely mortified human is going 'no, well yes, some of them are, that’s not the point, it doesn’t matter if they’re dangerous or not, I just don’t fucking like them, okay, please never let one aboard ship again, i will love you forever and fight off a hundred pirates for you if you just keep the creepy leggy little fuckers the hell away from me, i’m so fucking serious right now, i am begging you’.

And she is absolutely deadly serious, and it makes no sense whatsoever, but suddenly the entire crew are 100% for never, ever letting xhilitin aboard the ship again. Because, well. She would fight off a hundred pirates for them, she has fought off a hundred pirates for them, she’s dragged herself back with half her leg torn off that one time after saving Lehm and Ehletol from the nine-foot slavering beasties she still thinks are adorable. There is no rational reason in the universe for her to be afraid of xhilitin, but it doesn’t matter, because she is, and that means this ship is suddenly a no-insect zone from now until forever.

Because hey, okay, humans are tough, humans are insane, humans come from Space Australia, but sometimes humans come with a couple of odd little quirks, sometimes they’re randomly terrified of ridiculously harmless things, and that’s okay. That’s okay. That just means that sometimes aliens get a chance to look out for their humans in return.

* please allow me my comforting illusions and do not inform me of how unsterile and full of bugs spaceships really are, okay, this is future sci-fi land where spaceships are clean and free of creepy crawlies and nobody needs to have nightmares

a quick drawing of percy and annabeth dancing/ goofing around. kinda like the scene at the end of the titans curse in Olympus after they saved the day<3

MC Hates Bugs


     Yoosung ran towards you as a shriek rang through the house. He slammed open the door, breathing heavily. 

     “W-What’s wrong MC?” Yoosung peeked into the room to see you cowering on a chair. He followed your eyes to see a tiny little bug, so tiny it was barely visible. 

     “Yoosung! Please! Get rid of that bug!” You screamed at him, flinching as the bug moved a little to the right. Yoosung let out a sigh of relief before tentatively reaching out with a tissue with a trembling hand.

     “You’re s-scared of the bug too?” You stared at him with wide eyes, and he turned red. 

     “W-Well I just don’t like them, okay? You shouldn’t be scared about bugs! Y-You were in the apartment with a bomb remember?” He was bright red as he impulsively grabbed the bug, flushing the tissue away. 


    Zen jumped up at the sound of your yelling, the script flying everywhere as he searched for you. He found you standing in a corner, pointing at a small spider on a wall.

    “Zen, please do something about that.. thing.” You were visibly trembling a little, and Zen grabbed a magazine, rolling it up.

    “W-Wait! Don’t kill it! I’d feel too guilty…” Zen glanced up at you with widened eyes, and began to laugh.

    “Hahaha, MC you’re too cute~ I’ll get a cup and some paper, just wait.” He then ran to the kitchen for a cup, and using a random old script for paper, he trapped the spider. He took it outside, and while you watched,  he freed it in a bush. After he dropped the spider, he turned to the window you were watching from and smiled. 


    Jaehee and you were cuddling while watching a movie, when you turned your eyes away from the screen, body suddenly tensing up. .

    “Are you alright? Do you feel sick?” She put a hand on your forehead, checking for a fever.

    “Jaehee, t-there’s a bug…” You said, pointing at a tiny black speck on the wall.

    “It’s much too high for bugs to be here MC, it’s probably some dust that got stuck on the wall.” Jaehee sighed a little, and gave you a reassuring smile, lightly kneading your tense shoulders.

    “JaEhEE IT MoVEd” You nearly shrieked, backing up into the couch. Jaehee got up and stepped towards the small speck, and laughed.

     “MC, it’s okay, it really was just dust. The wind must have made it move a little.” Jaehee held up the little ball of black fluff, and decided to do a through cleaning as soon as she could.


     “What do you mean, a fly? That was a real thing?” Jumin stared at you doubtfully, while you nodded with teary eyes. He followed you to the living room, where a fly was buzzing around. At first glance, Jumin was mesmerized by the bug he never saw. 

     “So this is a fly… It’s quite like a butterfly…” Jumin looked at the fly, trying to study it. But the fly clearly didn’t take to kindly to his gaze, and nearly barreled headfirst into Jumin’s nose. Jumin instantly panicked, grabbing the bug spray and totally drenching the room in it. 

     The two of you couldn’t go into the room for weeks,,, 


     You called out for Seven, not taking your eyes off of the spider hanging on a shelf. Immediately, you heard a clattering, and a few pitter patters. A few seconds later, Seven skidded into the room, almost tripping, while heroically holding up a rolled up magazine. 

     “I’ll save you from the bug, MC!” He cried out, and whacked the spider off the shelf with strange sound effects. Your fear completely disappeared, and you couldn’t help but giggle as he proudly held up the magazine. Your smile dropped off your face when the spider began to crawl on the floor, and Seven began to panic. He grabbed the magazine again, and scooped up the spider. You watched, frozen in fear, as he ran to the door and tossed the magazine out. Slamming the door shut, Seven laughed a little before frowning. 

     “I had to throw away my sword…”

I was thinking about self-insert fics and ocs for quite a while and let me tell you, if by some reason I’m in the op world, I wouldn’t be a pirate. I’d be a paperwork sorter/assistant at the marine HQ.

Why? Because it’s not really a marine position (not as a soldier), it’s safe and easy, and I get to observe shenanigans while cheerfully making small talks/gossip with whatever Marines that come my way to submit their reports and stuff. I’d also get to joke around since I’m not really an enlisted soldier. Plus looking at them fine butts and shoulders and laugh at their training shhhh

(Actually im kidding about the butts. My true interest is watching at the way they go about on their duties WITH their coats flowing gracefully behind them. I just like to watch them okay bc it makes them look 300% more handsome/beautiful idk)

(…the butts are a bonus)

i made @sliceofphan a moodboard and she loved it so here you go too i guess lol


for you @sonamyboom12 

hope this quenched your sansxfrisk thirst :)

(I may have gotten a bit carried away, cuz I may or may not ship them too)

Plus, I adore Flowerfell/Overgrowth by @underfart-snas , and I couldn’t stop once I got going XD

ok but like my fav thing about the New Trio is that…. they’re all so nice to each other?? It’s such a staple in modern media stufd to always always have the slap-slap-kiss Witty Banter and Snarkiness pretending to be synonymous with “chemistry”. And they don’t have that? Rey and Finn are just so happy and excited about each other and so are Finn and Poe… so much of their first moments together are literally just heaping praise onto to other (see Finn and Poe in the Tie Fighter, Rey and Finn on the Millenium Falcon).

It’s so fun to see a cast that is just… genuinely nice to and appreciative of the others. Even when they’re arguing (such as in the Cantina) none of it is accusatory/insulting banter at all…

It’s just so refreshing and uplifting to have a cast whose chemistry/relationship is actually based on mutual kindness and adoration instead of just the writers trying to one-up themselves with Witty Insults every line, you know? I JUST LIKE THEM A LOT OKAY
