Soft Lips and Birthday Wishes (pt. I)

“There was a feeling of inevitability when I met you. The sense that we would be together; that there would be a moment when you would look at me in a certain way, and we would cross the threshold from friendship into something so much more…”

Hey Edo, which Voltron series do you think has the best antagonists both in terms of being an actual threat to the protagonists and being compelling and interesting characters.

it’s really not fair to compare all the older series to VLD since there’s such a huge difference in era/budget/target audience/general dynamic style; the new series is so good all across the board in those aspects that drawing up any comparisons is pretty much shooting all the other series in the neck right from the get go. 

that said, i’m going to cheat a bit and say Beast King GoLion is the best. it’s not strictly a ‘voltron’ series but it’s still the basis of everything, and holy shit is it violent and scary. the pilots escape from a cannibal slave ship arena, shirogane gets killed within the first stretch of the first season (and later his younger brother is also killed trying to avenge him), prince sincline is not funny/generally incompetent like prince lotor is, mutilated corpses are regular background filler, princess fala’s remaining citizens constantly get murdered trying to protect her from the galra, planet earth gets blown to pieces, and honerva/haggar is the most horrifyingly merciless villain of all the ones they face.

i think this kind of stuff becomes most apparent watching some of the episodes with chibi/pidge. the older pilots (mostly) do a better job of taking all the horror in stride but there are a few chinks (like losing the pilots, missing his home and his mother etc.) where you can see the extent of how things affect their youngest member and it’s not pretty. 

This is for anyone who’s watched Fried Green Tomatoes and wondered if Ruth & Idgie are supposed to be read explicitly as a couple or just as best friends. The film does a weird job of both showing them as a couple raising a kid together, but keeping it ambiguous enough that they could still be mistaken for good friends. Every description of the film, including the back of the DVD calls them “friends” and it’s bullshit. They’re a couple. They are in romantic love with each other. Don’t ever doubt it.

From Fannie Flagg’s novel itself. Idgie’s POV (of the bee charmer scene) followed by Ruth’s POV of her decision to marry Frank Bennett:

I rest my case.

(There are obviously many other examples from the novel - including Idgie’s own mother telling Idgie’s siblings not to tease her about her crush on Ruth; and lovely Sipsey teasing Idgie that she’s been bitten by “the love bug”. But rather than me including every example, you may as well read the novel yourself!)

COLIN,TONY!!! what do you think about the fact that people ship you two????

colin: well, i can’t exactly go on ships… unless there’s some sort of internet connection there, no one can do much in my digital world. not to mention, i am 95% electronic based, so putting me anywhere near water could possibly lead to me shorting out and/or my possible death. so, ships are definitely not for me!

tony: colin’s right, he could die. now, even a machine like himself can run out of time, but if he were to die by water, that would be quite the untimely death. both of us would not prefer that, don’t you think?

colin: [nods thoughtfully]

tony: not to mention, i run on batteries, so if any water got near there, i could potentially die, too. now, while i do talk about time running out and such, i’d rather not have mine suddenly run out, especially for such a silly reason!
