It’s been two years. Two years since they’ve felt rain on
their faces. Two years since they’ve seen their families, since they’ve spoken
to their families. Two years since they really started to learn what war was.
Two years since they stopped being teenagers and became soldiers. Two years
since they left Earth. Three, for Shiro.
But now they’re going back. They’re going home.
Well, for a little while, at least. The war isn’t over.
The Galra Empire has been taking over the universe for over 10,000 years, it
can’t be taken down in simply two. But in two years, the Voltron Alliance has
grown substantially, and they’ve taken down enough Galra higher ups that
Voltron is almost universally known and called upon, and with fame, comes
questions. It’s not a secret anymore that the five Paladins of Voltron are from
Earth. Everybody knows, so there’s no point in avoiding Earth anymore. At
least, that’s what the Paladins keep telling Allura. Earth is vulnerable now;
it’s a target, and with it’s technology as unadvanced as it was when they left,
they’re at a serious disadvantage if the Galra ever attacked. They probably
still have no idea that aliens even exist. Earth needs Voltron. Earth
needs the Voltron Alliance, and the Voltron Alliance needs Earth.
Also, Lance just really needs his mom.
So, here they are, entering the Milky Way Galaxy, all
waiting anxiously at their stations on the control deck.
“Ha! Boom, bitches! Wi-fi is up!” Pidge punches her fists
in the air in triumph and ignores the half-hearted look her father shoots her
when she says “bitches”.
The others have long since gotten used to Pidge and her
amazing technical ability, but they still all look at her in shock, except for
Matt. He had obviously helped her.
“Pidge, how the hell did you get wi-fi in space?”
Keith asks incredulously.
Lance nods in agreement. “Seriously. Tell me how I can’t
get a signal in the desert outside of Galaxy Garrison, but you can get one past
At this, Pidge snorts and raises an eyebrow at them. “You
didn’t have me. Or amazingly amplifying Altean technology.”
“Something tells me it was mostly the Altean tech.”
“Shh and bow before my genius.”
Pidge, Hunk, and Lance all immediately grab their phones
and start scrolling on them, ignoring Coran’s announcement that they’ll be to
Earth in two dobashes.
“Oh my god. They told everybody we’re all dead. We have a
memorial!” Pidge exclaims.
if you’re stressed about your grades/future: “you are young and you will take your damn time.”
A few days ago I had an emotional breakdown about my future (surprise lol.) It’s not as though this doesn’t happen daily, but it’s dawned on me that I couldn’t even discern my true desires from what my lack of self confidence was trying to feed me.
I allowed self-deprecation to get the best of me, and it turned an erroneous decision into one that seemed the most “right for my situation.” I had a plan. But I was not confident nor happy with that plan, so I fell apart.
Parked in front of my dad’s house, I voiced the concern that–although I thought was a result of flakiness–actually stemmed from an acute source of insecurity.
My dad then turned around and told me something that I’m positive will stay with me forever.
“Don’t you dare feel like you have limited options based on your past mistakes. You are not limited and you will never BE limited. Don’t rule any opportunity out right now. You’re not running out of options, you just haven’t found all of them yet. You have so much power left.”
I asked him what power a teen/young adult could have, and he looked at me with so much conviction and said, “Youth. You have youth, and youth itself holds so much power. You’re only 17. I wish I were 17. I wish I had that much more left in me, but I don’t. You are 17, you are young, and you will take your damn time.”
I initially interpreted this as a projection of his own regret. But now, I interpret it as empowerment. I think about it whenever I feel completely overwhelmed by all that I have left to do. Why should I consider quitting now? I’m only 17. Many of you are also of high school, college, or graduate school age, and we have such a long way to go. We’re only so young, and compared to our parents–people who have so many decades of experience under their belt–we don’t know the half of what life has to offer us. And that’s ok, because we have so much left to experience.
In college, I want to explore different courses. I want to find something that’s right for me, but in order to do so, I need breadth of experience rooted in thoughtful discussion and exposure to a range of things. Although I love art, I want to obtain a liberal arts education as well. And finally having said this, I realized that whatever I thought was “right” was only only a thinly veiled attempt to evade my insecurities.
Records don’t matter. Grades are trifling in the grand scheme of things. My future job is only a portion of what will comprise the best days of my life. Bad teachers, vague assignments, tough environments–I can trudge through the difficulties and I will prosper, because that’s what I can do as someone with youth on my side. This isn’t to say that someone who is older doesn’t have the same privilege. My dad wants to continue to program, and all the more power to him!
But that only exemplifies how much time we have as people who are so young. We have a leg up, and I’m certain that we need to utilize the extra time, stamina, opportunity, and youth that we have to make decisions based on our own situations–not on what other people expect of us, and certainly not according to what our stress and anxiety wants us to believe.
(The last bit is incredibly difficult, I know. But it’s a process!)
This isn’t to say that I’m not going to worry and stress. I will! Hell, I’m stressed right now just writing this. But I’m improving.
Ironically, this studyblr doesn’t thrive in standardized education. This studyblr struggles not with content, but with structure. This studyblr is really nervous about the coming year. But even then, I still have so many choices that it’d be insulting of me to become my only limitation. Obstacles are not impenetrable–not when I have so much power on my side.
idk why i’m posting this here but,,,,,,,my choir went on a little tour a couple of months back and i just got a hold of one the videos my roommate took when she came to see..(catch a solo from ya girl at :48) anyway it’s a really pretty song and i just…yea lmAo ok i’m just gonna post this and stop rambling.
So basically my biggest hero and artistic influence just reached 10k followers and im sooooo unbelievably proud and happy for her!!
I made a tumblr account like 3 years ago and didn’t touch it because i literally had no idea what it was or how the hell to use it. So its May 2016 and literally like 5 months prior i discovered this show called star vs the forces of evil and i can honestly tell you my world turned upside down. No joke i stared at the screen and said “i don’t know who they are but i ship it” I HAVE THE SNAPCHAT!! So anyways im super new to tumblr and i final open the app and it asked me what i like.
I typed in starco (i learned the ship name through Instagram). Literally like the first post was one by a user named atomicmangos and it was of Star and Marco missing. And me being me i was like OMFG YESS MY BBYS!! I don’t think i’ve ever clicked the follow button so fast.
Another month does by and i see she does these live streams on join.me. I’ve never been to a live stream so i was actually really nervous. I downloaded the app and entered her chat room. IT WAS SOOOOO AWESOME!! AND BY FAR THE BEST DECISION IVE EVER MADE IN MY WHOLE LIFE!! There were only like 7 people there and i got to know all of them!! It was such a comfortable environment and i honestly couldn’t have asked for a better group of internet friends.
I met my current best friend because of those live streams!!
She asked us we wanted to see and i literally started throwing ideas everywhere!! I didn’t think she actually liked them until SHE ACTUALLY DREW ONE OF THEM!!
She drew 2 of my ideas. That may not seem like a lot but to a young artist it really opened my eyes and saw a new light on artist. They do listen to their fans. The thing with mangos is she doesn’t treat us like fans she treats us like family. Its like when ever i go to her streams i’m home… all her ideas and her au’s inspire me to draw.
Because of mangos i’ve now decided what i want to do for pretty much the rest of my life. I want to be an artist. Like her. I may not be the best at it but i’m trying. I know i’ll get there one day because she told me so. She’s there for you whenever you need to talk and she’s really supportive of anything you do. I am honestly soooo lucky to befriend someone like her. She’s so hard working and i know she has a lot of work with school so the fact that she makes time for us really does mean a lot. She’s inspiring and kind and talented and over all just an amazing person!! I hope we mean a lot to her like she means a lot to us. Im sooo happy and honored to be a part of her mango fam and i will never leave. Why would i! It’s my home.
Those beautiful pieces of art work above were drawing i suggested and SHE DREW THEM!! LOOK THATS MY NAME!! COMETS SAYING!! But as always creds to the Amazing: @atomicmangos
I’ve had this idea cooking in my head for a long time now and finally got it written down. I had to rush it to get it out in time before the new episode. This was actually meant to be a short 1,000-1,500 word fic, but things got out of hand and now it has 4,500+ words. I have never written a fic for White Rose (the best ship in RWBY lol).
I actually want to give a little shout out to @weissrose. Their amazing RWBY fanfics (*cough* Foxtrot *cough*) have inspired me to write this and I just hope that I captured the characters correctly. Its a little angsty but has a happy ending.
A/N: omg, this is the first story i’ve posted…i’m nervous as hell and i realised it’s really short but i feel like this is the perfect intro to my writing and i’ll be working hard to try and write even more to post on here. but i hope you enjoy this little drabble i cranked out!
~ He’s not the one to show emotion very well but he really wanted his s/o to know how much they meant to him. He put his hand up to their face, gliding his thumb over their cheek and pulled them in for a kiss. He was surprisingly gentle, trying not to press his beak too hard against their lips.
~ When he pulled away, he’d be a little flustered. (even warriors can get embarrassed!) Teba would avert his eyes and mumble something about how much he loved them. what a dork
~ He and his s/o had spent the day wandering Hyrule, preforming songs at local stables and towns, bringing the joy of music wherever they went. This day had been wonderful and he wanted to show them how much he enjoyed spending time with them. Kass put a hand to their chin, pulling them in for a kiss. He accidentally put a little too much pout into it, he was actually quite nervous to kiss them! But after a few seconds he’d relax a little bit, running his hand through their hair.
~ When they separated he’d lay his forehead against theirs. He wished they could stay like that forever.
Thank you so much for asking!! (no one ever actually does this im so happy)
❤: who is more affectionate in public? in private? in public it’s 1000% connor, kevin kind of gets nervous about PDA and so does connor, but he LOVES to hold kevin’s hand everywhere. in private it’s kevin, he LOVES attention so much he like, begs for it without directly begging for it honestly ♡: who is the bigger romantic openly? secretly? Connor is more openly romantic, Kevin is more secretly romantic. Kevin will plan dates that are REALLY cute, like, they’re not perfect but he tries and Connor appreciates it heavily. Connor is like 1000000% extra whenever he does anything romantic for Kevin, like he always goes the extra step to make it the best he can. ❥: who is more likely to plan something big for valentine’s day? Definitely Connor. Kevin would probably forget Valentine’s Day if it weren’t for Connor gushing about it all the time ღ: who is more likely to initiate hand-holding in public? Connor (in canon, he does grab Kevin’s hand so) 💕: who is more likely to make huge declarations of love in front of other people? Kevin. Since Connor is still overcoming his repressed gay feelings, he struggles with it. But Kevin is always so loud and proud about it that… he just shouts it 💘: who developed a crush on the other first? Definitely Connor. Kevin was too far up his own ass to realize the heart eyes he kept making at him, but after shit went down Kevin started to realize the feelings he was developing 💝: who spends more time (possibly overthinking) what presents to get the other? This one is hard. I feel like Kevin works really hard to try and impress Connor, but Connor thinks about it more. You know? Like Connor is always thinking about what to get Kevin, but when Kevin wants to (has to) get Connor a present, he really contemplates it for a long time. 💓: who initiates most physical contact? Connor, as seen in canon. 💌: who is more likely to send cutesy texts to the other? Connor. Bless Kevin for trying but he’s the worst at it 💟: who spends time reading their zodiac compatibilities? Connor. Kevin doesn’t believe in that kind of stuff. 💙: who is more protective? Kevin for sure, he worries about the way people treat Connor, and does everything he can to make sure he feels better. 💚: who tends to get sick more often? who is better at taking care of the other? Kevin gets sick more often because he always ends up putting himself in bad situations. He gets really frustrated when he gets sick, but when he realizes how much attention he gets from Connor, he starts to enjoy it more and will fake being sick from time to time just to get more attention. 💜: who said “i love you” first? or, if neither has said it yet, who is more likely to say it first? Probably Connor?? He probably accidentally blurts it when thinking about how gay he is, and Kevin stares at him in shock for a minute and Connor blushes and tries to pretend it didn’t happen but Kevin accepts it and is like, me too. (jk. he probably says “hey, i love you too?” 💛: who believes in soulmates? Connor. Kevin struggles to believe in most things after all the shit that happened in Uganda, but Connor convinces him otherwise.
I have come up with an event, but I need one to two other big blogs to participate!
I won’t be telling much about it but I need for you guys to reblog! Or to tell other blogs about it and see if they want to participate. It’s up to you guys to help me and send those asks to others!! I’m hoping this actually works, I’m a little nervous.
Normal postings should be continuing soon, but I’m really excited for making this work!
i was lucky enough to hear about @chatuoir’s incredibl(y messy) double fake dating au a month or two ago! we did a lot of screaming about it, which was always fun. anyway, lucia was awesome enough to let me try my hand at it, so here we are.
this is definitely the most complex thing i’ve written for the fandom, purely because of all the things that are happening in it. the basics of it aren’t exactly…basic. double fake dating in a love square. always fun!! also: rated t because they’re teenagers and there’s a lot of swearing.
i’ve only got the first chapter written, so updates for this fic might be a bit more spaced out! buckle up everyone, this is one hell of a rollercoaster.
Chat kicks his legs over the side of the Tower. It’s been a long patrol of mostly nothing, it’s rare that much comes up during these anyway. Usually it’s small things like robberies and assholes, almost never anything close to the size of an akuma.
Besides, it’s nice to hang out with Ladybug outside of akuma fights. When they were first starting out, patrols were mostly quiet and serious, despite his relentless attempts to crack jokes. But now he’s able to drop onto the Eiffel Tower with a greeting of, “Evening, My Lady. You look radiant as the moon tonight,” and she’ll just smile. They’re able to let conversation flow freely or sit in comfortable silence.
Chat adores having this relationship with Ladybug. He’s never had anything like this before. He never wants to lose it.
“…you’re not such a bad guy.”
He blinks. Okay, if he doesn’t want to lose her friendship, he should probably start paying more attention. “Yes,” he says, because that seems like a good response. Yeah, he’s not a bad guy. That’s true.

AND bc im so upset i feel like i lost my ability 2 make funny naruto posts n therefore im worthless lmao its a mess
i love sleepy morning kisses pls my heart will shatter soon into 69 pieces
i can just imagine mink and koujaku waking up together at around 10 am to 11 am and mink has an arm wrapped around kou’s torso, pulled back flush against his own chest because spooning is great!!!!!
but its a lil after kou wakes up and he’s not even sure how to get out of minks tight ass grip so he just pokes minks hand before turning his head slightly. minks resting his head tucked into koujakus neck so when he turns, mink gets a face full of navy blue hair
“are you awake?” kou asks and his voice is a little scratchy, low and sleepy
“mhm” mink just grunts, eyes closed as he fixes his hold around koujaku’s body, digging his face further into his neck and letting a soft and deep sigh through his nose and koujaku is so close touching mink that he feels the grunt a bit in his own chest
“do you want to let go of me and i can go make breakfast?” theres a warm and soft smile plastered against koujaku’s mouth and he taps minks forearm in an attempt to get up from bed
“mh” another grunt is heard from mink and its a stubborn one because mink honestly doesnt want to get out of bed yet and theres even a cool breeze coming through the window with fresh smells of the outdoors
“hmph,” kou rolls his eyes because mink does this alot “well i can’t do anything for you with this death grip” koujaku chuckles and shifts so that hes facing his boyfriend, their faces just an inch apart where he can examine each small detail in minks face, sharp cheekbones and the pigmentation of his skin and how pretty his hair falls over his face. he takes into account every little living and breathing aspect of mink because its just so beautiful
in koujakus state of absofruitly adoring mink, his hands trail up to cup the sides of minks face as he leans in slow to softly press his lips against the others and its simple and sweet
minks eyes open a little as he returns the kiss with his arm now resting/clutching koujakus hip as he props himself up using his other elbow and he kind of towers over koujaku while on his side
koujaku is blushing like a lil bitch now and mink just stares down at him with his golden eyes roaming all over his red face and kou just glares like
mink fucking smirks again at his nervous response and chuckles a lil under his breath
“nothing.” thats all mink really has to say before he himself leans downwards towards kous face, tilting his head to the side and he teasingly brushes his lips along koujakus and that earns him a hitch of breath before mink actually kisses him
its long and sweet, no traces of bitter and koujaku feels himself sinking in and his hands on minks face again
god they could kiss a million times and each time would be a fucking treasure im rUINED OK ABSOLUTELY RUINED LMOA BYE
A/N: I literally haven’t written in 5 ish years so I apologize for the shitty writing and OOC ness. I just started writing this randomly after watching Amen like 10x.. so…(I never thought I’d actually post anything I’ve written though.. so im really nervous about this…)
I really love your blog and i think you are a lovely person too <3. So, i dont know if the requests are still open today but, can you do a long or short reaction, what you preffer. When BTS are in love with a girl who is younger than they (like fifteen or sixteen years old) and they want to confess but they are nervous bc the girl is actually the little sister of another member in te group? A really big sorry for my bad english, im a spanish speaker, so kissis from Uruguay! Have a good day <3
Your english was perfect, dont worry about it~ And I struggled a bit with this one, and I think it turned out a lot like this post I did about you being Tae’s older sister and the guys liking you, but I hope it’s different enough and that you all like it~
Gifs aren’t mine
SEOKJIN: Seokjin was reluctant to tell anyone about his feelings for you. You were much younger than him, and in addition to that you were the younger sister of one of his band mates. It just seemed odd to him to pursue a relationship like that; but he hung out with you a lot as “friends,” and if you asked him out and your brother was okay with it, he’d most likely accept.
YOONGI: Yoongi would consider the age gap for a while; it was a large gap, and he wasn’t sure how he felt about that. But, if he found that he liked you so much that the age gap didn’t bother him, then he would go for it; your older brother was an idol, so you already knew what to expect from him and his busy schedule, so that didn’t worry him as it normally would have.
HOSEOK: Hoseok wasn’t going to let the fact that you were the younger sister of one of his band mates stop him from flirting with you. In fact, he’d use it to help him; he’d ask the band member what you liked so that he could be sure to win you over. If the band member didn’t approve, he’d back off, but he wouldn’t stop completely unless you wanted him to.
NAMJOON: Namjoon was reluctant to make a move. He was worried about what a relationship with a band mates younger sister would do if said relationship ended badly. However, despite that, he wouldn’t exactly hide his feelings; he wasn’t afraid to flirt or sincerely compliment you, but he wasn’t going to ask you out unless every member was okay with it, not just your brother.
JIMIN: Jimin was going to flirt with you whether you were a band member’s sister or not, but he wasn’t going to actually ask you out; not until he’d talked to your brother, at least. He wanted to make sure that him dating you wouldn’t cause a problem between him and his friends, and he’d be very serious about it; he understood your brother being protective, but he’d want a better reason than that to not date you.
TAEHYUNG: Taehyung isn’t really the type to keep secrets from his friends, but his relationship with you would definitely be an exception to this; he’d want to date you, but he wouldn’t want to say anything until he was sure how he felt about you. The moment he said, “I love you,” was the moment he told the others, because they knew how he felt about love, and so they knew he was serious about you.
JUNGKOOK: Jungkook wasn’t really sure what to do. He respected his hyungs and couldn’t imagine doing anything that would upset them on purpose, but he really liked you. He went back and forth a lot; he’d flirt with you, then get distant. Talk to his hyungs about you, then act like he had no idea who you were. They all knew he liked you, though, so that would only last until one of them forced him to confront his feelings.
