Episode titles for LWA 16-19 got listed by Netflix:

16. Pohjola’s Trial
17. Amanda O'Neil and the Holy Grial
18. StanWarship
19. Cavendish

Episode 16 should feature that one tower that appeared in episode’s 11 vision. 17’s title is an Indiana Jones parody and also pretty self-explanatory. 17 is definitely a Constance episode; Constance’s little robot is called Stanbot and the titular ship follows the same naming scheme. As for episode 19, I’m expecting it to be a more serious episode focused on Diana’s emotional problem, the title being her family name definitely hints it will be about how she has been suppressing her true feelings; kinda thinking it will end on a negative note before Akko and Diana finally open up to each other on episode 20 or 21.

birthday presents for isis ishtar

  • from yuugi and the gang: a lovely and expensive coffee table book on the archaeology of japan, plus a small photo album of their trip to egypt, filled with messy, but effusive thank-you/birthday notes singing her praises
  • from rishid: a soft blue silk scarf, because it matches her eyes, and she definitely kind of lingered over this one at the open market for a while, and he firmly believes she deserves nice things
  • from kaiba: the complete, entire, top-to-bottom funding of her next archaeological dig, from travel and lodging for every undergraduate research assistant looking for summer course credit to the survey equipment to the jeeps to the notebook she uses to take notes on pieces of pottery, you’re welcome, don’t mention it, ever. no, really. do not.
  • from malik: a moment of fuckgin %$!! PEACE AND QUIET !!!! also: a promise to stop walking around the house in his dirty, ashy motorcycle boots, and a promise to clean his dishes instead of dumping them in the sink for her or rishid, and a promise to turn his music down when she’s trying to write funding grants and answer emails from the british museum, and a promise to stop ‘borrowing’ her jewelry without asking first, and a promise to pay her back for all the make-up she bought for him last time she was in paris, thanks sis, you’re the best, have i ever told you how much i love you, sis? i love you. happy birthday
  • he also gives her an indiana jones hat, because he finally saw indiana jones, and he didn’t really like any of it (UM, INACCURATE) except the hat. isis NEEDS that hat.
  • isis loves that hat.

Indy doodle dump.

I just really wanted to draw her in a bunch of her different Nuka Cola outfits. Of course, that desire fizzled when I was about halfway through. Anyway, here they are, including Indy carrying Hancock because he needs to rest up after taking a few bullets/explosions/deathclaws for her.

Why I consider “The Test” one of greatest episodes of Steven Universe season 1

Im rewatching Steven Universe. Thats really all there is to say on the matter.

start of episode is so cute. C´mon, Gems playing game with Steven? Yaaas.


Pearl trying to understand children game with super complicated rules…
they way she tried to make sense of it…Thats how i felt sometimes while trying to make sense of Homestuck when i got lost (which was quite often) :D

And how Garnet, Pearl and Amethyst congratulates Steven for winning game is just plain great. So sweet of them! ((how can anybody say they´re here for him just because her half-gem? Would they throw a birthday party for him if they didnt care, huuh?)

And then Steven finds Sea Spire statue. He´s clearly sad and feels guilty about making mistake and making it fell apart. And what do Gems do? they reassure him, tell him its alright. which is awesome


and Pearl makes such a funny face when she realises she said it was test mission for steven XD


Also as always…Pearl is terrible liar XD and i love noisies she did in this part of episode. “eeeeewww” XD XD Deedee is great voice actor

and they just go and agree on Steven´s “Test meeeeee”. They create a freaking dungeon


and that cool sequence when doors open? woooooow

Once again, music composers proved themselves that they´re briliant at music.

the little star baloons at ends of chambers? cuuuuuuuuute!! All so Steven is more happy
lets talk about chambers.

Amethyst is random. running before ball aka Indiana Jones reference? Heck yes. Also her chamber is best decorated. Hands down because it totally is.
Pearl´s room is cool. I love Steven´s sentense “Oh, a musical puzzle. Must be Pearl´s room. only she would make me think.” XD XD so funny line. And then BAM. Pearl´s room is like “ Ok Steven. you can think swiftly, but can you MOVE swiftly as well?”

aand Garnet´s chamber is just….quite hot. Now, what else were you waiting from Garnet? Pretty rad.

and they put safety everywhere. Not because they dont trust Steven, but because this test isnt about him proving his abilities to Gems. Its about givinng him confidence.
(i cant just…dat feelsy musiiiiiiiiic)

and then we have my favorite part of episode.


Gems, standing in finish, waiting for Steven. They want best for their boy. Steven needs to remain confident, thats for sure. Lapis went away, Peridot just showed up, he lost his healing powers…hard times came, Its important for Steven not to went into despair. So this is why they´re doing it. For him. They are only ones who can teach Steven how to be gem and protect humanity. So they need to be parent figures for him. But they´re aliens. They arent familiar with taking care of someone younger, they already started existing as adults, never living through growing up process.

What´s more, Steven is only half-gem. Garnet said it perfectly. “There´s never been anything or anyone like Steven. We don´t know what he needs.” Gems struggle so much to be good parents to Steven, even through they themselves feels…lost. Their leader Rose, one who gave them all reassurance…is not here anymore, and its been only 13 years since she passed away…for someone who lived for thousands of years, thats only tiniest fracture of time…and can hardly heal grief. Its like if you lost someone mere minutes ago.

So yeah, they´re lost. And what does Steven do? They tricked him, again. He has right to be angry. But…our Ste-man is much more brighter. He plays along. In the end…its Gems who get reasured, who gain confidence…in being parents for Steven.


and it all end with hug. what a way to end episode

So yeah, thats why i consider this one of best episodes of season 1. Its not that much of plot-related  episode.and yet…its something amazing.

“Raiders of the Lost Ark” - The Long Take

Dorian Pavus and the Temple of Sacred Ashes

by @theindomitable-ladymal

Summary: The Wardens have all gone missing at the most inconvenient time. Felix is dying and Dorian needs to survive the darkspawn long enough to reach the Temple of Sacred Ashes. Fortunately for him, he meets Warden Faren Brosca in the most unexpected way. A Western AU/Indiana Jones AU. Also available at AO3.

I am so happy about this fan fiction and wanted to cherish it with it’s own cover art :D Late, but still - Thank you so much (like again) !!

anonymous asked:

Headcanons for visiting Vegas after a mission with the boys? I'm mainly interested in Ratboy Genius and DJ Frogger over there, but feel free to throw in some Cowboy if you feel like it. Also: Of course no Vegas request is complete without waking up Hangover style and realising you got married, so OF COURSE Id love reactions for that too.

y e s  y e s (i’m also putting headcanons in 2nd pov now cuase idk i’m tryin to figure out what I like best)

Kylux Fic recommendations

Children Wake Up series

of course. It’s a psychologically fascinating, slow moving, heart rending work of genius which I now think of as maybe more important to me than the actual film. Independent of canon, anyway, like a great novel in its own right. 

All That You Love Will Be Carried Away 

Lyrical and lovely, and includes Kylo Ren and Hux exploring ruined temples and finding ancient artifacts in a delightfully Indiana Jones way. (Also Hux politicking with the old guard of the Imperials behind Snoke’s back, like the reasonably savvy general he must be.)

Savages by K D Azrael

This is 100% my headcanon on the First Order. They’re not the same as the Imperials from the old films. They’re what happens when the most zealous, most fanatical, most militaristic of the Imperial military are forced into exile a long way away from civilization with nothing but the Star Destroyers they’re travelling in. And then they have children, and those children grow up, believing themselves to have been robbed of their birthright, and having been trained to war from the moment they could stand. Savage, feral Hux with a thin veneer of Old World polish, is completely my delight.

Lines On Skin - saltandlime

NGL, I’m in this pairing for Hux, and this BDSM story has a great Hux. I can definitely believe in this guy as a canon version. He’s clever, he’s driven, he’s got bags of agency, he’s not as big of a jerk as he could be (though obviously that’s not saying much,) and he has just defected to the Resistance to save his and Ren’s life, with no idea how much of a psychopath he’s going to look like to more traditionally adjusted people. I love it, but I’m now desperately worried that the Resistance is going to be no better for either of them than Snoke is. I mean, they’re evil, but they’re good for each other. I know they don’t deserve it, but I want them to be okay.

Laeti Vescimur Nos Subacturis - GallifreyanOmnishambles

This is Kylux, the Addams Family version. The First Order is lovely, everyone’s good and supportive friends to each other, Hux’s family are delightful and every bit the family that an aspiring successor to Darth Vader would want to join … basically they’re evil but they’re adorable with it.

You are Cordially Invited to the Wedding of the Century - Shuriken-to-the-Face

Kind of military romantic comedy. Hasn’t been upated for a while which is a great shame, but I live in hope.

I’ve got a couple of modern AUs I’m following too but I don’t seem to have bookmarked them so this will do for now.
