I believe in anything

That brings you back home to me

Consider Matt x Lotor

So, after reading this post, @lioness-voltron and I talked about possibilities, especially considering this video, and we came up with this idea.

So, if Lotor is a villain, and he kidnapped Matt, imagine this…

  • Lotor kidnaps Matt Holt, hoping to get information about Earth, since it’s the home of the paladins, and he could leverage that information to defeat them. He hopes that it will improve his status if he can come up with a successful strategy.
  • Matt, however, isn’t really into the idea of being used like this, so he just starts messing with him instead.
  • Lotor: “You will tell me all about your home, Earthling.”
    Matt: “Earth? Earth is a nightmare planet. If you set foot on the surface, you die. Kids learn how to survive by stepping on objects. We call it The Floor is Lava.”
  • Lotor: “Tell me about your leaders.”
    Matt: “We don’t have leaders. We all obey these fuzzy insects called bumblebees. They’re pretty good at giving us directions. And honey.”
  • Lotor: “What are your weaknesses?”
    Matt: “Humans die if you backflip away from them. And it really hurts us if you whistle.”
  • When Lotor whistles experimentally, Matt pretends to be in agonizing pain.
  • Matt: “We have something called a 5 second rule where if you drop something, you only have 5 seconds to retrieve it or it’s as good as gone.”
    Lotor: “Your planet sounds dangerous.”
  • He just keeps coming up with increasingly more ridiculous things, offering 100% wrong information. He is coping with his whole imprisonment by making himself laugh. 
  • Matt also tosses in something just to mess with Lotor when he notices that no one else is allowed to interrogate him. “I should warn you. Humans secrete a toxin that makes you fall in love with them if you spend too much time around them. You need to be careful.”
  • Lotor is pretty sure he’s lying, and he laughs it off.
  • Until one night, he wakes up after a dream that leaves him questioning things. “I think… I think I have been affected by the human’s toxin.”
  • He storms up to Matt, shouting, “How does one reverse the effects of your toxins, human?”
    Matt just grins. “Oh, that? I was just messing with you. Humans don’t do that.” Then, he laughs. “Are you really in love with me? Geez, I must be cuter than I thought.”

This is the sweet message Harry said before Sign of the Times and after he had suddenly put his pride flag over his mic stand. (As you can tell by my yell I was surprised. Also, the video gets a lot better when Harry starts talking, I thought he was going to leave the stage before the encore but he went straight into his speech and he had the flag so I had to be quick lmao)

“Thank you so much for having us. I um— It’s kind of impossible to say thank you enough times because, like, I just couldn’t be on this stage if it wasn’t for you guys. So, thank you so much for everything that has got me to this place and for all your support since this next song came out. I love you very, very much and um -coughs- this is the last one.”

Then the crowd started to boo and get sad.

“I mean, I just don’t have any more songs. This is just the last— This is just the last- the last one! Now please sing along if you know this one and if I am– If I could possibly be any luckier than I am right now I will see you again very soon! I love you with all my heart, this is Sign of the Times!”

I don't know if this is okay, but can you thank Jay for me? His revelation about coming out with Ultimate Storytime in your pride video had me sobbing. I haven't seen someone like that, who uses he/him and she/her like I do, and the way he talked about feeling alone really resonated. I want to thank him for being so open about it bc listening to that, I finally stopped feeling alone.

That’s so wonderful!!! You shouldn’t feel alone, and I’m so happy Jo was there to share his story. I had no idea he was as uncomfortable with himself when we started that show, and the people in each audience… I mean, they truly made him feel celebrated, and that was such a beautiful thing to see every night. I’m so glad that happened, and I know he would want you to know you’re not alone. @jayisjo, take a look at this, you sweetheart.

Last September 6th marked 22 years since Colombian goalkeeper René Higuita executed his famous scorpion kick save against England, in a friendly match played at Wembley in 1995 (x)

England’s Jamie Redknapp had taken a shot from distance, but, with the referee having already stopped play, the then-Atlético Nacional goalkeeper jumped in the air, and cleared the ball with his feet arched above his head.

“El Loco” has said that he is not angry that the famous save is what he will be remembered for, having been inspired to perform the acrobatic kick by watching children playing football in the street. “Human beings are always remembered for their great work, and that was what it was,” he told Mundo Deportivo. “Children have always been my inspiration. I always saw them in the street or in a park trying out bicycle kicks, and I told them it would be good to do it in reverse” (x)

Precisely, his nickname, “El Loco” (The Madman), is derived from his high-risk ‘sweeper-keeper’ playing style and his flair for the dramatic. This style, which was first shown to a global audience during the 1990 FIFA World Cup, was pioneering in influencing goalkeepers to take more responsibility for situations further from the goal (x)

I've been meaning to ask you, how do you get the colors in the lineart look so nice and smooth when the lineart is sketchy and cool? I've seen other artists do it too, and I wanted to do that, but when I did, the color shows up behind it and it looks really ugly. Please answer and/or post a video on how you color you art and keep it looking slightly sketchy! I love and look up to your art! Please reply! Thank you!!

Keep in mind i use 

I hope this helps!

so i haven't seen anyone write about this, and who else shall i turn to than you - what would happen if the twins' father suddenly showed up?

They’re at the Columbia house late in the afternoon when there’s a knock at the door. It barely cuts through the riot of noise from the television where Aaron and Nicky are playing some kind of video game - it’s white noise to Neil, who is trying to finish an assignment due on Monday.

Andrew stalks past from the kitchen, throwing them all a quick glance as though assuring himself that they’re all in their appropriate places, and then disappears down the hall. 

There’s the sound of the front door opening, and then muffled voices. Neil can’t recall ever having someone come to the front door while they’ve been here - if it’s a salesperson of a Mormon, they’re probably already sorry to have made that mistake. Especially when the conversion goes on longer than Andrew’s customary five seconds.

Nicky reaches for the remote with a frown on his face, clearly intending to drop the volume so he can listen in. It goes flying instead when he jerks, startled, at the crash of the door slamming closed.

A moment later, Andrew appears briefly in the doorway on his way back to the kitchen. He looks unfazed, but that isn’t exactly unusual. Nicky, who is clutching his chest in typical dramatic fashion, flicks Neil a wild glance. 

“Who was that?” Neil calls, as Aaron pauses the game and plunges them into quiet.

It means Andrew’s voice is perfectly clear when he replies at normal volume, “Our father, apparently.”

It’s such a disconnected concept that, for a moment, they stare at each other. Then, Neil goes for Andrew - Aaron, pushing Nicky back down onto the couch with a fierce stay that definitely won’t stick, goes for the door.

Neil pauses in the doorway of the kitchen, where he has a clear view down the hall to the front door past Aaron’s body and Nicky in the living room doorway. He can barely see the man on the front stoop - thanks to press photos, Neil knows the twins favour Tilda. There’s nothing of this man in them from what he can make out, but he knows that doesn’t mean much. Neil, after all, looks not a thing like his mother.

“Who the fuck are you?” Aaron demands, twice as abrasive as his brother. He has an arm slung across the door frame, protective like he thinks the man outside might try to get in if he doesn’t.

Neil casts Andrew a glance, finds him slicing vegetables for their dinner as though nothing is happening. There’s no tension in his shoulders, no indication that he’s thrown by this development. It doesn’t surprise Neil particularly.

Neil turns back to the other twin, the one with the stiff spine and the voice halfway to a snarl. 

“I’m Peter,” the man says. He’s trying for a smile, but it looks like it’s falling off. That’s a mistake, anyway - there’s nothing Andrew likes better than removing someone’s smile, and Aaron’s equally good at doing so even without the same intent.

“You think you’re our father,” Aaron asserts. The our sounds strange from him, probably because he only ever uses it in moments where it’s monsters-versus-everyone else. That said, this situation probably counts.

“I saw you on the television,” Peter says. He presumably means Andrew, because he’s the more news-worthy twin, and never in a good way. Aaron seems to grasp that - the tension in his braced arm winds tighter. 

“Your mom and I were, um, together. Around the same time,” Peter rushes on, like he senses his time is running out, and then, “The timeframe works out, let’s put it that way.”

“A lot of people fucked my mother,” Aaron drawls. “Were you wanting a prize for that?”

Behind Neil, the sound of chopping ceases.

“Let me guess,” Aaron goes on, before the stranger can. “You want something, right?”

Peter opens his mouth. Aaron cuts him off. “You’ve come to the wrong place.”

Then, for the second time, the door is slammed closed. The wood groans a complaint, and for a moment Neil fears for the hinges. It’s one thing to send the man packing, but it’s another entirely to crush him.

Aaron spins back, stomping down to the living room door and only avoiding barging into Nicky because Nicky moves first. Nicky throws Neil another please-do-crowd-control glance before he follows Aaron back inside. After a second, the television comes back to life with a blare.

Neil throws Andrew another glance. He’s still unbothered, returned now to his task. Neil wonders how long that peace would last if Peter were to come back. If he were to knock at the door again now. Wonders if Aaron, whose face was barely-contained fury just now, would be the one to break it.

The twins need to stay away from legal trouble. So does Neil, of course, but that’s different. Neil Josten has a clean slate, technically.

It might come in handy if someone ends up calling the cops.

Peter’s halfway into his car when the door of the house opens for the third time. Someone slips out, closing the door gently behind them before trotting down the front steps.

The kid is slight, messy hair held back from his face with a bright orange bandana that clashes terribly with his complexion. His face is horrifically scarred across one cheek, warped like melted plastic under his eye.

“Hey,” he says, the most friendly-sounding thing Peter has heard all afternoon. He swears he should recognise him - he’s done plenty of research on the Minyard twins lately. He just knows that this isn’t the cousin: that one is supposedly taller.

“Hi,” he replies, trying to remember how to look friendly again himself. He thinks that expression fell off sometime through his conversation with the second twin, whichever one that was. He pastes on a decent approximation as the kid gets closer.

Neither of the twins got anywhere near within reach, so it’s a surprise when this one gets closer than that. And then closer, so fast that Peter merely flinches before he’s sent crashing back into his own car.

“Shit!” he yelps, and then a hand grasps his throat and stops him from going on with a firm and threatening grip.

“Shh,” the kid warns, which is when Peter finally recognises him. This kid, too, has been in the news. “Don’t disturb the neighbours.”

A squeak crawls out of his throat unbidden. The fingers press down harder for a moment, a reprimand. Someone this short shouldn’t be so strong, never mind so threatening.

The kid’s eyes are an unusual colour - icy, just about. That’s an apt comparison from Peter’s stunned brain as he looks right into them. His name escapes Peter, but he looks just how he would imagine a mobster’s son.

“You’re going to get in your car now. And you’re not going to come back, or come near either of them either again,” he says, almost gently. “Because you won’t like it if you do.”

The threat is implicit, but so real Peter can almost taste the blood in his throat. His heart is pounding in his ears, echoing against the kid’s palm. He can’t feel a heartbeat in the hand in turn, but he suspects it would be as steady as a sleeping man’s if he could. There’s no trace of anxiety in his scarred face - just brutal honesty, and a dash of humour.

He drops his hand and steps back. Peter’s knees nearly go out from under him, forcing him to catch himself against the car. He scrabbles for the door handle, unable to comprehend just what it is that has him panicking, and crashes into the driver’s seat with his legs still shaking.

His tires screech as he peels out. He doesn’t even look at the house in the rearview mirror as he speeds off - he thinks those eyes might be following him.
