Dear Merlin, I am telling you now, because I’m afraid that it might be too late one day if I don’t: This was the most fun I’ve ever had. You’re next to me in my life. You’re the best person in the world, and I wouldn’t change a thing. Please remember me, even when I’m not there anymore one day to pick on you, and laugh at you, and call you names. You said I made you feel special. Well, you are special. And I would spend centuries with you if I could. I fear that the universe would rip in half if we went further apart than this, but I don’t think we have a choice. It’s not fair, but none of it ever was. Whatever the future holds, though, I don’t want you to change. I want you to always be you. Let’s make it the best life we can. Love, Arthur. 

Let’s talk about the Black Lion’s phasing powers:

Not to be all “Shiro is a Druid who can do magic and is doing magic right in front of us we just don’t realise it” but…

This is what the Black Lion looks like when she phases through solid matter when she’s piloted by Zarkon (which Shiro sees in the BL’s flashbacks in 2x07):

There’s a distinct blur of pinkish light that looks a lot like the Galra/Druid magic that Zarkon gets from Haggar.

Now here’s what the Black Lion looks like phasing through solid matter when Shiro’s in the pilot seat, in the S2 finale:

Little different, right? This time the light is white and sparkly, much more like the Altean magic we see Allura do in the show.

In both these scenes we see Black with her wings out before and after the phasing-through-solid-matter thing happens, so it’s definitely the same process going on. The pinkish light you see when Zarkon does it is similar to the way Black’s cockpit lights up pink when Zarkon tries to take control in the S1 finale:

Compare this to how the cockpit looks when Shiro retrieves and ‘fixes’ the Black Bayard and then docks it with the control panel in the S2 finale:

The light is much whiter and edged with purple (it also looks more of a natural fit to Black’s colour scheme, but I digress)

Now… we don’t know a lot about how quintessence/magic works on the show, but it all seems to be different versions of the same thing. That’s why Sendak can just plug a Galra crystal into the Castle of Lions, turn all the lights pink, and power up the Castle. And it’s why Allura - a sacred, magical Altean who we’ve seen manipulate quintessence/do magic multiple times on the show - can absorb Haggar’s magic. Zarkon even refers to Haggar’s magic as ‘quintessence’ in one of the scenes where she transfers the quintessence to him. So it seems like Altean magic and Dark Druid magic are just two different versions of quintessence (like the Light Side and the Dark Side of the force).

The fact that Zarkon uses Haggar’s pink quintessence to force himself on the Black Lion makes me think he was also using pink quintessence back in the day when he piloted the Black Lion. I don’t know whether Zarkon has a natural affinity for magic or not, but when Haggar transfers quintessence to him he can definitely do something with it.

Which leads me to this: what if the Black Lion’s phasing-power requires magic to work? When we see Zarkon do it in the flashback, the light is pink, because Zarkon is usually infused with pink quintessence and his magic looks pink as a result. But Shiro can manipulate Altean quintessence, and his ‘natural’ magic is the white Altean version, so when he uses his magic to activate Black’s phasing power, the light is white.

And someone’s gonna say “oh but you talked about his arm and how he’s doing magic with it” yeah because Haggar gave him a Galra arm to convert his natural, white quintessence into the corrupted pink Galra version - the same way the Druid in Collection and Extraction turned raw quintessence into the Galra version. That’s what the arm is for - it doesn’t just forcibly activate his magic powers, it also turns his quintessence pink. The result is a sort of hybrid white-pink, Altean-Galra quintessence very similar to what Allura uses against Haggar in the S2 finale.

So yeah. When Shiro activated the Black Lion’s wings and phased through Zarkon - he was doing magic.

what she says: i’m fine

what she means: jin kissed rap monster. seokjin kissed namjoon. kim seokjin kissed kim namjoon. kim seokjin’s second onscreen kiss is with his fellow bts member kim namjoon. his actual plush lips actually fucking touched namjoon’s actual silky smooth cheek live in front of the rest of bangtan and millions of witnesses. kim seokjin, plush god and inventor of hand kisses, literally placed his lips on the cheek of one motherfucking kim namjoon, beast rapper and ryan bear enthusiast. kim seokjin, writer of kissy punishments, had to do his own goddamn punishment on kim namjoon, the biggest pretender in the universe pretending to hate the idea of being kissed by kim seokjin. the pink princess kissed pinkmon on the fucking cheek-

spot the canon couple: shadowhunters/tfa edition 

[aka finnpoe is gonna b canon here’s the receipts]

minervq  asked:

it's 2am and i've read everything i can get my hands on abt EU, so can i just say 1) as a media student, this would make a FANTASTIC TV show. there are ten million plotlines staring me in the face and 2) how do you think the fae's fascination with theatre would translate to TV production? still has the costumes, the glitz and glamour, but there's a lot of tech in close proximity. (I can attest that some late nights/early mornings in the studios can get hazy and discombobulated, though...)

Oh god imagine this as a show, it could be so good if they got the wonderterror of the whole place right - there’s more in the shadows than what you can see, and that’s a double-edged sword.

I think it would absolutely fascinate them as well - objectively there’s not magic at all present, but at the same time, there’s entire new worlds being made. Like the theatre, the whole is something much, much greater than the sum of the parts.  Unlike theatre, the finished show is a thing almost unrecognizable from what’s originally been filmed - it’s been put into order, clipped and touched up and made into a very different creature than the initial scenes acted out. It also has a certain allure because they don’t know how it works, can’t get close enough to try to take it apart and figure out how (and even if they could, it’s still unlikely they would be able to understand).

Why do I feel like this couch bout to change my life

hi everyone, i’m not dead! i’ve got two more weeks of hell, then i’ll hopefully be back; possibly with open commissions if people are interested! (no breaks though, i have a portfolio to do over 3 weeks… “OTL)

‘til then, have a super quick nerris enjoying the summer warmth because it’s freezing here now…

okay but forget all the dramatic stuff and just think about oikawa and iwaizumi:

  • chatting about their plans for the weekend
  • linking each other music and videos
  • having silent laughing fits in the back of the classroom
  • arguing about the plot of a movie they just watched
  • laying in each others’ rooms on their phones in comfortable silence
  • buying each other joke presents
  • bringing up something the other did years ago and both crying from laughter bc in hindsight it was pretty funny
  • forcing the other to come with them to buy/do something
  • trying to study together but getting distracted bc talking is way more fun
  • bitching about someone they both dont like
  • snapchatting instead of doing homework
  • cringing over old photographs
  • pushing each other around in shopping trolleys
  • cheering the other up when they’re down
  • wrestling for the last slice of pizza
  • telling each other lame jokes and laughing sarcastically at each other
  • venting and asking the other for advice
  • being stupid and happy
  • being best friends
  • just think about oikawa and iwaizumi
