So, I just thought of my own humans-are-the-weird-ones thing. What if humans were the only race to develop clothing and other things that are used simply to change our appearance. The other races don’t use clothing for protection from their home environments, and use vehicles for exploring non-native environments. Armor exists, but in a non-ornamental way, and generally doesn’t do much to change appearance, or is at least non-individualized. Makeup and nail polish are unknown, though tattoos and piercings are known to be used by some cultures for ranking and identification purposes and are not used ornamentally by any race other than humans. Hairstyles are not unknown, but are all generally for practical (keep it out of the way! I need insulation! I need shade!) reasons.
At first, aliens just think that there are a lot more humans than there really are, that humans that look alike with small differences are just family members, and that humans just naturally tend to be known solely by their family name. (Like, Alien “Ralph” meets Human “Bella Tailor” one day, sees her the next day in a different outfit, and thinks that he/she is meeting a relative of the human he/she met earlier, and that their family name is “BellaTailor.”)
Humans, at first, just thought that aliens were terrible at matching faces and names… and that they were apparently all nudists, but hey, who cares? Different cultures and races and all that, you know.
“Hello, BellaTailor. My name is Ralph. I believe I met your relative the other day. How is she doing?”
“I do not have a sister, Ralph. You must be mistaken.”
“That cannot be! She looks just like you, only more… pink, I believe is the correct color-word… and has your name! You must be relatives! It would be too much of a coincidence for you to not be related!”
“Where… exactly… did you meet my ‘sister’?”
“Oh! We were on the same shuttle together. I must admit I am surprised; I thought that there was only one human on the ship’s roster.”
“Ralph, I am the human you met there. Remember how we talked about how uncomfortable those one-race-fits-all shuttle seats are?”
“But… no… you are different colors and patterns! This is a terrible joke. I wouldn’t suggest trying it on anyone else.”
“Dude, all I did was change my clothes. It’s not like I’m a whole ‘nother person, despite what commercials and such would have you believe.”
“Right… nudist… um… let me just… show you?”
Bella precedes to take off her top (not like they’ll care, they’re nudist anyway, right? eep, here goes nothing, really hope this is okay). Ralph thinks she means that they’re a race that sheds their skin, though he’s put out and puzzled over how no one mentioned that fact to anyone. After all, shedded skins can really clutter up an area, especially at the rate she seems to shed, though it could explain a few things. Bella, frustrated, puts her top back on, takes Ralph to her quarters, and shows him her clothing (which was still mostly packed due to limited storage space). Ralph finally sort-of understands, but the idea is totally trippy and weird to him.
“What did you think I brought so much luggage for?”
“Well, I didn’t really want to pry, and your planet is… a bit… cluttered…”
*sigh* “Dude, I can’t… I just… urgh! WHY ME?!?!?!”
After many misunderstandings the aliens are brought to understand that humans can change their appearance in many ways, practically at-will.
Then the whole issue of “camouflage” comes up. By this point, humans have developed advanced camouflage that automatically mimics the wearer’s surroundings. The other races react in various ways. Some are rather neutral about this discovery. Others are afraid. But many desire to obtain the art and secrets of “camouflage” for themselves. The earth and humans are now at the center of a conflict that borders on war - Intergalactic war. Because we’re the only race to have actually thought of camouflage. Thankfully, the other races begin to catch on before full-blown war is unleashed, but it is a very close thing.
@howtotrainyournana@crossroadsdimension Look! I came up with one! :D YAY for tired-brain-creativity! WHOOO (don’t really feel tired now, but I should be, and I know I will be when I have to wake up in four hours. :/ why does the coffee only seem to work when you actually want/need to sleep?)
this scene is so interesting to me because of how much coran doesn’t look at alfor. not just that, but he seems to go out of his way to refrain from acknowledging the ai.
an ai he more than likely helped create. one he certainly knows exists, since he helped create it, and one we know he can hear and interact with, but doesn’t
when the corrupted alfor tries to convince allura that altea is real, and that everything she sees is real, coran is the one to break the illusion by asking her where the scent is. he’s not seeing what allura is seeing, but he is hearing alfor tell her about how it’s all very real, as real as the things she’s touching/holding in her hands
coran has history with the royal line. his grandfather helped create the castle of lions. we have young coran running around with alfor (and zarkon) in season 2. i’m assuming coran helped alfor put together the ai, knowing damn well what that meant (alfor might not survive, so this was all that the king could give to his daughter.) allura thinks of him as a second father. and alfor chose coran to be frozen alongside allura so she would be cared for, which coran clearly does and takes seriously.
not once does he look at or acknowledge alfor here. he immediately focuses his attention on allura. turns his back to alfor when it’s not strictly necessary in order to help steady allura while she stands, and even closes his eyes when alfor speaks.
and it’s not that he doesn’t care. he even points out that, by disconnecting alfor’s power source, the king will be gone forever. something that allura has likely sorted out on her own, yet he can’t help voicing that extremely distressing fact.
tl;dr: i have no idea where i was going with this. someone please give them blankets and cocoa.
Sorry if this was already been answered yet, I checked your wcif but I haven't found it there (or I just missed it). Wcif the earrings from your "no filter challenge" post? Thanks in advance :)
unfortunately it’s by salem2342 and it’s no longer available :’-( or i can’t find it sigh if someone has a working link that would be great! THANK YOU @raiingamiing (idk why i can’t tag you omg) for the link!!!!
idk if anyone has made a post about this yet but you know that face that bodhi makes when saw gerrera takes a breath from the oxygen machine?? you think he made that face because it reminded him of darth vader breathing and he has ptsd or…
I'm worried abouT WHETHER IT'S REAL OR NOT CUZ a few years ago in Gravity Falls the crew actually made a fake screenshot/set up like that and spread it online omg
yE i heard abt that omg. im still kinda holding out that it’s real bc it was posted by someone who hasn’t been previously confirmed to have been associated with vld, and through an instagram story, so if they wanted to fabricate smth like gravity falls did why not play it through someone like josh or bex who are p vocal on twitter?
Yet another blmatsu has been exposed for pedophilia and lying about being a survivor! So how long you gonna keep validating these ugly bitches with your whole "anti kink shaming/pro shipping!" bullshit? Just know that when a child gets raped out there by someone in the blmatsu community you basically told the pedophile them and their pedophilia kink were valid! uwu
Idk where to start but pedophilia isn’t a kink anon.
“Yet another” there’s only one person I’ve heard of who preyed on a minor, and according to one kiwifarms post they used the promise of giving $600 of illegal hormone drugs to groom their victim in another country so please do tell me how someone in the blmatsu community told this person to commit a crime? How does anyone saying “ship what you want” get someone to groom a IRL minor?
And one person out of like thousands of blmatsu fans committed a crime, are you trying to suggest these thousands of fans who like a fictional ship are criminals in waiting? If so damn, have you tried applying to be an FBI agent? They could use your deduction skills anon! I wonder why the government hasn’t banned incestuous fictional siblings if it can cause a person to harm a IRL minor hmmm….I mean if we’re going by your logic anon, if a rapist likes the color orange well that must mean all people who like the color orange is a rapist!!11!
I feel bad because I haven’t drawn something lately and I really have a mental block, I can’t finish anything.
And yet here I am posting a dramione page with a story that has been on my mind during these days but I suck at writing fan fiction. Someone please write me a story where Hermione and Draco cross their ways in the Ministry of Magic years later after Hogwarts. They remembered their past or just start a new torrid affair idk but Hermione is already engaged. Oh my god.

Why do you say that suho is probably gay? Did I miss something? (No that it's a bad thing)
I guess his alleged bf has been posting pics of them (just…occasionally), and one of them said “3 years together” in the tags, another was tagged “date”, and he just talks really cutesy about them together. Apparently he hangs out with Suho and Taohun sometimes. Idk, I don’t have full information yet, but also apparently some people have known for a while??? And tbh it doesn’t surprise me too much haha. Remember that one time when one of the members said Suho often talks on the phone late at night with someone, and Suho was like “uh..yeah my mom” and they were like “Yeah, no, he’s talking to a guy” lol But I just learned of this tonight, so you’re not too far behind ^^
Of course I always like to question the legitimacy of information like this but…I honestly wouldn’t be too shocked if it were true. Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. I still love the guy. ^^
idk if anyone has suggested it yet, but if you wanna get a tattoo for lexa you should get her arm tattoo. not only is it really pretty, but its lexa's (whom is also very pretty).I saw someone else was planning to get it and even drew out the design, i cant find the post tho. another suggestion is to just get a giant tattoo of her face on your entire back!!!
omg thats a good idea but it might be too big like i want something smaller maybe her head symbol or some words idk i got to think about it. but oh im also definitely getting her whole face on my back and then a tattoo of clarke and lexa kissing on my ass :)
