I absolutely called this episode, I KNEW that Navy was up to no good omfg. Navy was my favorite out of all the new rubies but when she crashed down and IMMEDIATELY said she didnt want to go back, I got suspicious. The line of ‘all the other rubies are mean to me’ sealed the deal because like?? the rubies looked like they were all super close?? i never got any indication that they were mean to her.
I also just loved the whole concept of it tbh, the ‘nicest’ ruby turned out to be the most conniving little thing. tbh, I think that Navy is going to go get all the other rubies and then, in true ruby fashion, theyre gonna come back for ‘’’’revenge’’’’ and lose or whatever
also!!!! the whole other plot with Lapis was so good!! I like the fact that she still isnt 100% okay with earth yet, that stuff takes time and im glad theyre showing that
(obligatory Garnet gushing) DI D U SEE HER?? I LOVE HER SHE WISHED FOR ANOTHER SHOOTING STAR SO THAT STEVEN COULD HAVE A WISH AND THEN HER LITTLE BLUSH AND HAND FLIP WITH ‘OHHH STOP~’ IM FUCKING LOSING IT
THE BALLOONS TOO GOD, OF COURSE SHE KNEW WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN BUT SHE TRIED TO GIVE NAY A CHANCE ANYWAY I!!! LOVE GARNET!!!
im laughing cause….well @mat-murdock isn’t totally wrong (we do hate mon-el for everything he does always) but this post is so ignorant im dyin. so here are some real reasons why everyone has a beef with him just existing in general that y’all kremlins like to ignore!!!
Mon-El: *admits he misses objectifying women, is hyper-possessive and is jealous and generally misogynistic on multiple occasions* Karamels: OMG MY SPACE PUPPYYY!!! he’s so cute he doesn’t know any better!!! its his culture omg c h i l l y’all are reaching….look @ him defending kara…mr. mxy man get away from MON-EL’S girl!!! im glad he disobeyed her cause he did it cause he LOVES her.
Mon-El: *demeans Kara on multiple occasions, in private and in public* Karamels: this is what she gets for being so bossy and controlling like i don’t blame him for getting mad….he deserves RESPECT bc he is SO respectful to her!!! anti’s are just mad cause blonde barbie kara isn’t kissing girls on the show!!! stay pressed!!
Mon-El: *ignores Kara’s wishes on multiple occasions, both while on the job and in a personal setting* Karamels: shes asking WAY too much of my sweet puppy like she holds him at a higher standard than EVERYONE…i cant believe she’s so selfish and controlling…WHY IS SHE SO DEMANDING!?! he doesn’t know any better ok!!! my puppy is LEARNING its his CULTURE to blame!! she is just trying to control my handsome space blob.
Mon-El: *gets broken up with for lying about who he is and expects implicit forgiveness from kara, always* Karamels: kara is just so…..unreasonable. so prejudiced and unforgiving. look at how hurt my space puppy is! :(:(:( he said he was sorry and that he LOVES her!! she should be forgiving him it’s not like he’s the only liar on the show. like.. mon-el only lied to her to stop ppl from thinking he’s as bad as other ppl on his planet…..like he totally isn’t what show r u watching where he’s terrible???
And last, but certainly not least…
Mon-El: *not only owned slaves but benefitted from/did nothing to even attempt to stop slavery on his planet despite being in a high position of power* Karamels: ok lets be clear his FAMILY owned slaves, HE didnt!!!! like his mom put him in time out when he said he didnt like it….he’s totally doing all in his power to stop this!!! plus he said he hated it. like, im not excusing slavery im just not gonna get mad at someone over their views on slavery you know???? thats lame…
Request: Hi! whenever you have time can u write a Jeff Atkins imagine where y/n and Jeff get into an argument before his big baseball game and he doesn’t think she’ll come but she stills shows up to support him?:)
I walked into the media center looking for where Clay and I usually sit. I found the table and Clay was already seated there, I put my stuff down and sat across from him.
“Hey dude! Whats up?” He asks
“Hi.” I coldly say, not bothering to answer his question.
Clay noticed but I guess he decided to brush it off. About 30 minutes later we were working on a U.S history essay I wrote. I’ve made a few mistakes in punctuation and Clay was pointing them out.
“Thats not even how you’re supposed to use a comma.” He said slightly laughing. “You see you’re supposed to put the comma after the-”
“Yeah whatever man I really don’t care. Lets just wrap this up.” I said cutting him off.
“Dude what’s your problem today?”
“Nothing, I just have a baseball game later and I’m nervous.” I lied “Now can we just get this over with?”
“You always have games and you never act like this. You wanna tell me whats really wrong?” Clay asked.
“(Y/N) and I got into a fight last night and she hasn’t talked to me since.” I finally explained.
“Damn was it that bad? What were you even fighting about.” He asked.
“I don’t even know, it was something really stupid but my dumbass decided to overreact.” I said said pinching the bridge of my nose.
“You better try and make things right dude, you don’t wanna lose her.”
“I know I know. I’ll talk to her after the game but now I gotta go, see you later Clay.” I said after I got my things together and left.
I was now standing on the field, watching everyone get into their places cause the game was about to begin. I look over to the bleachers where (Y/N) always sits, but she wasn’t there today. I wasn’t surprised, I did get her pretty mad, but it was still weird not having her there. It kinda hurt to be honest. As my coach yelled a couple commands I took a final look at the bleachers and saw (Y/N) making her way to the front. She sat in her usual seat, then began to scan the field looking for me. We then locked eyes and she gave a small wave and I waved back. Suddenly, everything wasn’t so shitty.
After the game finished and I changed out of my clothes I walked outside to look for where (Y/N) typically waits for me. I went up to her and wrapped her in a tight hug.
“You actually showed up?” I questioned.
“Of course I did. When do I ever miss a baseball game?” She said giggling.
“But I thought because of last night you wouldn’t want to-”
“Last night was stupid. Besides I wouldn’t fuck things up over an argument.” She said as we held hands and interlaced our fingers and finally walked off. Im glad (Y/N) knows how to put up with my dumbass otherwise I don’t know what I would do.
I see her as a survivor. In many ways, she does exactly what all other characters on the show do. And quite often she does things that - if she were male - she would be lauded for. So, for me, it’s so refreshing to play a female character that does not have to be likeable. Why does she need to be likeable? Nobody else on this show does!
She has to survive. And so she does the things that ensure her survival. That’s it.

i have another request to do but this was something i ended up drawing on my own haha. ive been reading a lot of su criticism and it’s been v interesting, and lapis seems to get adressed a lot. ppl rly appreciate beta lapis so i thought about redesigning her resembling that version and expressing more personality with her design + experimenting with shapes. for her i decided to go with a tear drop theme. it still needs adjustments as i figure out how to draw her fast and consistently so her forehead might get a little smaller but otherwise im very glad with this design! i honestly wanted to draw something so that was rly nice
i made her darker and with gold accents for personal taste, with darker muted and less saturated blues going along with her depressed and mostly negative personality, and the splash of bright gold to go show her bits of her that are funny, silly and light-hearted. i imagined her freckles would show up dark when corrupted, lighting up gold once steven healed her. they might even glow when shes really happy one day! and for the rest of her i decided to focus on more rounded long shapes.
Fuuuuuckkk. That was… that was not what I expected at all! The ending literally just blindsided me and ripped me apart. I don’t like the feels that you made me feel! You have a heart steph?! ….this is almsot as bad as burning Baby…..
This shouldn’t have hurt me as much as it did! Like I AM A DEAN GIRL! … but but but Sammy, poor alone Sammy. I don’t know how to feel anymore. I feel like everyone is trying to turn my into a Sam girl recently…..
I do love it! This was so cute and so fluffy! Also featuring one of my favorite songs! I belt out Bohemian Rhapsody very frequently and if Jensen were to randomly pop in while it was doing it, I wouldn’t mind ;)
Haggar being revealed to be Altean was great for so many reasons.
The Blade of Marmora showed us that this show is not all black and white and that the Galra is not some evil faceless empire. Rather it’s made up of individuals who can be good or bad and are most likely a mixture of both, which I think is important to apply to the Alteans as well.
So far within Voltron, we’ve learned that Alteans were predominantly explorers and diplomats. We know that they had a mutualistic relationship with the Balmeras and that they created a giant robot known as the Defender of the Universe. I mean honestly, they seem pretty great.
By showing Haggar, a known villain within the show, to be Altean, not only has there been complexity added to Haggar’s character as well as added emotional conflict to Allura’s fight against the Galra, but most importantly it’s humanized the Alteans.
It’s been easy to romanticize what Altean society must have been like before the fall and I’ve done this myself. But I think it’s important for to show that despite how idealized a society or time period may have been, no time or place is perfect and neither are its people.
I have no idea why Haggar joined Zarkon and helped destroy her own people, but I am looking forward to finding out what her motivations are and were to do so. Hopefully it will be revealed, or at least hinted at, in season 3 now that we know she is Altean.
hi! why do you love shuu uranus? (your gifs are great btw!!)
BECAUSE. okay ehm.
her uranus has that perfect balance of cool, fierceness, as well as endearing softness that I always love in haruka. like she looks like she could kill you on the spot in unv (and she really could), but in ae she is a cinnamon roll too pure for this world who just wants to carry her gf’s violin okay michiru probably made her do this but i digress. one second she is space sword blaster-ing tiger’s eye and the next one, channeling her inner papa and protecting saturn in the battle field.
she looks like haruka tenoh in the flesh.
the director said that shuu’s character study showed in her voice projection. she has a deep, soothing singing voice, and she’s an even better dancer.
her chemistry with sayaka michiru is through the roof. their harumichi compliment each other and they’re operating as an equal.
i’m sorry i got carried away a bit i just love those two so much smh
I drew @zamaron ‘s dnd character, Chifon! Silver’s blog is one of my favorites, and it always makes me smile seeing her on my dash. She makes me want to do and be better, and while I am too shy to talk her, drawing this is one way to show my gratitude and appreciation for making my days better one post at a time! It might not seem like much to you Silver, but even your silly posts make my day! Thank you for being you ♥
I got my commission this morning from @nosoundpell that my best friend @jhin-ffxiv got as a super belated birthday present for me of Numei!! I love it so much and it’s my first commission ever tbh. I’m so glad they got all the beautiful detail of the goldsmith gown and Numei’s parasite showing on part of her face. Plus her snarky attitude!! Thank you both so much!
ok so retail drug store AU!! im 100% shamelessly basing this off of my own job
about 1/3 of the store is cosmetics, skincare, bath & beauty, etc. the rest is pharmacy, OTC, food, and other general drug store stuff
have u seen drake’s video for ‘started from the bottom’? thats where i fuckin work
this is really long. im sorry
allura owns the store. she’s also the head pharmacist
which is always the owner of the store
in a permanent state of “my employees are fucking incompetent i should fire them” but never does only reprimands them
the cameras in the store show her everything thats happening she has a big screen that show all of the 24 areas. sometimes when shes bored and it’s slow she’ll sit there and watch the employees
she calls lance several times and tells him to stop fucking around bc he’ll just be hanging around the front cash bugging the fuck out of keith and pidge and hunk, if he’s there
theres a betting pool w the staff on when she and shiro are finally going to hook up
she deals with customer complaints when shiro isn’t around; a lot of customers see her pretty face and think she’ll be lenient on them , but oh boy. ohhh boy are they wrong
she’ll fuckin shred em
she’s stern but a very kind and understanding boss
coran is one of the front store managers (meaning he’s one of the managers of everything that isn’t pharmacy and cosmetics).
he’s also the product receiver
has to do a lot of cycle counts and damage reports bc customers drop things, especially cosmetic things, so often
jokes around a lot
will come check up on employees and see if they’re working or not
usually doesn’t do much if they’re not
just tells them to get to work but like doesnt actually do anyhing about it
one time he walked into the cosmetics department and saw lance giving hunk an impromptu makeover and said “dont do that on store time!” but lance offered to give him one too so coran was like ‘oh yes’ and never actually gave lance shit
very smart and suggests a lot of ways to improve customer service, ignores keith whenever he says ‘or we could not do that’
VERY protective of the staff, will fight anyone who treats them poorly
shiro is the head front store manager, meaning he’s above coran but below allura
(fs managers wear blue collared long sleeve shirts and ties. pciture shiro wearing that. thank u for ur time)
the store is severely understaffed so shiro is permanently stressdt
because he’s the one that deals with hiring and raises and wages and whatnot
is literally the Team Dad™ and the employees go to him a lot when they have issues/are being harrassed by a customer
since they cant tell customers to fuck off they get shiro to do it instead bc shiro is the manager and can do what he wants
(shiro never tells customers to fuck off. not explicitly. he’s too kind for that. hes very good at subtly telling them off though. kindly.)
takes naps in allura’s office a lot
is also in charge of what products get brought in
wants to go for a yearlong nap when lance and pidge keep suggesting all these weird sex toys and lubes
“look at this thing it looks like a BANANA shiro can you bring it in i’m gonna fucking sell this to that cranky ass old dude–” “NO, pidge, we are not bringing in a banana sex toy. jesus christ.”
“YOOOO I’D GET A THIRTY PERCENT DISCOUNT ON THIS LUBE ITS STRAWBERRY FLAVOUREDO OOHH” “i dont want to hear about your sex life, lance.”
no one knows how tf he got his scar or lost his arm but everyone always asks if he can robot punch the dick customer in the face and shiro always has to firmly tell them that’s rude and also, no, but only because theyd get fined
hunk is the best merchandiser (stock person basically, the ones putting products out and whatnot)
often climbs the shelves in the receiving room bc although he doesnt look it hes super nimble
the toilet paper is always on the top shelf and customers always want it bc its always on sale so hunk is perpetually climbing the shelves
sometimes he gets stuck up there and isnt let down until shiro hears him screaming, sometimes hours later
shiro leaves him in charge of signage and sale tickets which is fine bc hunk always bums off half of them to lance (who always whines bc he has enough to do in cosmetics which is a lie because theres nothing happening there ever)
deals with a lot of shit in general
“are you sure you dont have any more of this in the back?” “well ma’am, you see, this thing here” (handheld device) “tells me we have zero in stock, so, like, yeah. im sure”
has a small crush on one of the regular customers called shay, who will hang around and talk to him until shiro comes around the corner and says “Get back to work”
whenever he sees one of his coworkers being bothered by a customer he’ll come up and very cheerfully say “can i help you??” as said coworker makes a break for it
a VERY hard worker, always gets compliments from customers and even hugs sometimes from the regulars
always brings in cookies or donuts he baked and leaves them in the staff room for everyone to share; they always tell him to quit his job and open a bakery
hunk flushes and beams but would never leave this shit hole of a place, he says
spends like 70% of the time he’s in the receiving room dancing and singing loudly along with the radio, pidge joins him sometimes
so does lance and theyll play impromptu basketball with garbage and empty boxes
dabs at lance when he sees him across the store
pidge is the cash supervisor meaning theyre the one who deals with counting the safe, covering breaks, and dealing with customers when shiro, allura and coran have gone home
since the managers usually dont work night shifts, pidge is in charge almost every night from 2pm to close, at midnight
literally dead inside, makes jokes about it a lot
“hey pidge can you bring me a roll of toonies when you have the chance?” “sure, keith, i’m not doing anything anyway, only taking care of this entire fucking store on my own and wanting to die” “same” “nice”
will enter the staff room and announce “i hate my fucking life” and do a shot of chocolate milk
the tills crash a lot, and pidge gets at least 6 calls a day from lance especially because the tills are shit in the cosmetics department
“my cash crashed again” “just fucking leave it lance i dont give a shit” “i have customers” “okay ill come reboot it but only because youll cry if i dont” “Thanks pidge love u” (pidge has hung up already)
very small but always ready to fight
will literally tell a customer to eat a dick if they deserve it
one old guy was harrassing keith because he didnt have enough lottery tickets and keith was trying to remain polite (which he sucks at) and pidge came up and said “sir kindly calm down or leave this store immediately and dont come back”
covers lance’s breaks, since the department cant be unattended, and will shout across the store when they see lance stopping at front cash on the way back to flirt with keith
“YOURE NOT BEING PAID TO FLIRT WITH KEITH LANCE GET UR ASS BACK HERE” (customers stare)
got called “she” after specifying they want “they” pronouns multitple times, and then refused to serve the customer again
is that stereotypical cashier that literally wants to die
“hi welcome to quiznak did you find everything you were looking for?” *customer bitches about sale prices and blames keith as though he personally chose the price* “okay”
its always dead from 7pm to midnight so he’ll just stand there and read a book, and pidge will be like “u cant do that” and keith will be like “too bad” and pidge is like “tru”
has stupid competitions with lance, will often compete with him for Worst Customer Ever Stories
lance: “this woman told me i shouldnt work in cosmetics because im a guy!! what kind of bullshit!! i didnt give her free samples” keith, flatly: “a man yelled at me for five minutes solid because we don’t sell duracell batteries and then threw his empty coffee cup at me and walked away”
the uniform is a short sleeved t shirt but keith always wears a black shirt underneath it and no one cares enough to stop him
he also wears his skinny jeans instead of work slacks but again no one cares
this pleases keith because he knows his ass looks great in those jeans, and he knows lance stares at it from across the store
actually has terrible apathy and poor social etiquette and is bad at reading social cues which hes working on with shiro’s help
a customer sadly said “i lost my husband” and keith blankly says “did you find him” and shiro, who’s there for whatever reason, gives him a pained look, until keith says “oh god im so sorry i didnt realise oh god”
when its really slow and pidge is on cash he’ll leave to go “straighten up” the aisles but hes actually going to visit lance in the cosmetics department bc arguing with lance is fun
literally doesnt care about makeup or skincare but lance does and keith thinks its cute
if theres no customers pidge will get on the PA and say GAYYY for the whole store to hear
hunk will join in from the receiving
okay so im a cosmetician so this is entirely based off of my experience
lance is one of the only cosmeticians. there are 4 running the entire department. lance suffers everyday. he might as well be the fucking manager
knows so much about skincare that it’s lowkey terrifying. has amazing skin. “Whats your secret???” asks a customer. lance will never reveal. (its glycolic peels and a good moisturiser)
also is incredible at eyeliner, gives shiro a run for his money
“youre a guy why are you working in cosmetics” “because im beautiful”
the cosmetician uniforms are all black, long sleeve blazers and black pants. lance looks really good because he’s tall and slim, and pidge always tells him what a gay look it is
“im BI, pidge” “i know but its a gay look because its a GOOD look”
its always fucking HOT in the cosmetics department because its far away from the freezers and the lights for the makeup make the entire dpt like a sauna
lance will cry about it at any given time. he BEGS allura to change the AC settings but she never does
goes to front cash to steal bags a lot because they run out a lot at cosmetics but mostly actually goes to say some kind of pickup line to keith, or to whatever cute girl is waiting in keith’s line (earning himself a savage glare)
always has makeup swatches up and down his arms and all over his hands and smudges on his cheeks; somehow still looks flawless, and he knows it
shamelessly applies makeup in the middlle of his shift, earning himself calls from allura and shiro telling him to work andstop doing that
he doesnt stop
when hes bored hell leave the department and go hang out with hunk in the back for like a half hour and claim he was printing signs when asked
“i may hate my job and want to die most of the time, but at least i look good” *finger guns* *keith rolling his eyes*
a pretty girl or cute boy enters the department looking for a consultation and lance flirts the whole time, partially because hes a flirty dude, and partially because he KNOWS it’ll up his sales. also he likes making people smile.
makes faces at keith from across the store when keith is standing at his cash looking like a zombie. keith responds and they have an ugly face contest
after close, pidge, hunk, and lance will grab the trolleys and race down the aisles, often crashing into shelves or each other. keith joins sometimes and fucking slaughters them all
Splinter’s Death, April Fault? And apparently Apritello is dead...What?
So apparently the death of Splinter is April’s fault….and Apriltello is dead….oh the people in this fandom….
Okay, since Im calmer, I can rant more appropriately.
Lets take in onto why April didnt save Splinter…shall we?
Remember back in the chompy episode they talked about the Aeon made April’s powers a little weak? ((I cant really remember what exactly was said.)) Well theres one of the reasons.
Another reason is, she used up most of her levation during the Shredder fight.
Oh and after you just witnessed your Sensei getting gutted, then Im pretty sure you’d be paralyzed and shocked. After Splinter had fallen, April summoned enough of her last bit of powers to try to end Shredder once and for all. Hear me out, when you see someone die in front of you, something just snaps inside you making everything you do is beyond your bounds. Meaning when April blasted Shredder off the roof, she wasnt in her right mind. That or she didnt know she could even save Splinter, let alone shove Shredder off the roof.
In the second part of the Finale, SPOILER ALERT!
She stopped Donnie from falling probably to his death since he was gonna land on his head, when he was on his feet, he told April he needed to get back up there. She told him she couldnt levitate him. Which makes me think she has limitation to these powers of hers.
Shes not an all magical goddess who can save people just whenever. She’s also still young, the death of splinter shocked her, she tried to save him by warning him, but sadly that wasnt enough. I mean look at these faces!
These two were witnesses to this
Now of course she’s not gonna think “Oh let me use my unlimited use of powers to levitate this heavy pound rat to saftey” Plus even if she did, she wouldnt of saved him from death. Look how deep those blade are?
Those blades come out of his back!! They went into his stomach and out of his back. I may not be a doctor but Im pretty sure that would kill anyone.
Not only the stabbing, but Shredder holds Splinter high, making the blades go deeper into the body. Making the wound worse.
Then theres the fall.
That fall was in slow motion for us audience so we could grasp what was happening. But in reality, it was in a blink of an eye moment. There was nothing April nor anyone could of done. Knowing April, she would of used up so much of her powers to save Splinter. But with those wounds, and the impact a fall can have, he was already dead. That fall from a building that high would of killed him during his falling Im sure. ((Dont quote me on that))
Now lets talk about April’s sudden powers when she puts down shredder.
Right here is where I think she’s gathering all of her powers that she can, her eyes becoming murderous in the process,
You can see it in her eyes, shes going to take this guy down, shes gonna avenge her sensei, shes gonna make him feel pain and die for what he’s done. You see that murderous look as I pointed out above.
This is probably her last bit of power she has in her before she collapses from using up so much of her powers already.
And dont forget again, the crystal weakened her. So this might be at her most powerful? Maybe. I could be wrong.
With Casey’s help she, they achieved something, at that time. They avenged Splinter, their teacher, so they thought.
Lets talk about the wound.
Yes, Leonardo’s hand is soaked with blood. It this was on another network, this would be the gory. Im glad this show doesnt show much blood cause I wouldnt be able to stomach it. But Splinter’s top half of his robe would be covered in blood. Mikey probably would have some on him
As the picture says, notice how Mikey is positioned, he isnt on top of Splinter like he was back in season three, hes holding his father’s hand and laying his head on it, it could be that theres so much blood he doesnt wanna get closer to it. That or, something else I cant really theorize it properly.
What Im trying to say is, blood. LOTS of it.
Donnie and Leo would at least be sitting in the pool of blood of their fathers, meaning levitation or not, he would of died from the amount of blood. And the impact of that fall.
I do close this subject with this… APRIL IS AND WILL NEVER BE AT FAULT FOR OUR PASSING SENSEI. So whoever started this frenzy need to just really speculate before just blaming.
APRILTELLO IS DEAD SUBJECT
So is this why April is being blamed? Cause she’s apart of a ship that some dislike? If so, thats obserd! This person who started this was obviously a Capril shipper.
Because gosh forbid, one cant comfort another and not be tied into stupid romance.
Is this why Apriltello is dead? Cause he comforted her? I mean, I dont care either way, Capril is adorable and I do like them, Like all ships. I honestly dont care. What Im getting at is its pretty immature that you try and rub this in Apriltellos face claming that ship is dead.
Apriltello will never die, as long as it has shippers, it wont ever die, just like the ship Capril. That ship wont die cause it too has fans. Do I ever claim that its dead, hell no, cause that would be incredibly rude to the Capril shippers, like its rude to Apriltello shippers.
Most of dont like Caprils cause fans like the ones who are immature ruins it, well atleast that goes for me, I dont mean to speak for all. Its just….incredibly offensive is all.
Ships never die. Canon or Fanon, EVERY ship will live on. Cool it with the immatury, it makes you look like spoiler kid.
I know im gonna get a lot of flack from this, but this needed to be said before this crap grew worse and more irritating.
