jaws of the lion

I was thinking of Blue Paladin Keith
  • Keith: Okay girl so let's just try to get along and-
  • Blue: You hurt my boy and I'll destroy you
  • Keith:
  • Keith:
  • Keith:
  • Keith: ...What?
  • Blue: It wouldn't even be that hard, you are like a baby

DA:I environment studies I did today because this game is absolutely gorgeous.

Also, I’m planning on uploading a commission page for anyone interested :) A few of you sent me some messages about it earlier, so rest assured I’m working on prices and am hoping to release them very soon! Thank you so so much for all of the wonderful support you guys have given me recently, I can’t even begin to express how deeply it’s appreciated <3

I don’t know how to title

So, this took me way longer than I thought. Oops. This is a prompt fic for @stephaniebithell 

I hope you like it. I’ve never actually written Voltron before. Or any kind of battle. So, go easy on me.


“WATCH OUT!” Keith’s voice cried out through the Blue Lion’s speakers. Checking his screens, Lance had to pull hard to the left, just barely missing the laser coming at him. The laser would have smashed into the cockpit if he hadn’t moved, and Lance let out a small huff of breath, relieved.

“That was a close call, Lance.” Shiro berated gently, “You need to be more careful, alright?”

Lance nodded before cracking a smile. “Come on, Shiro! Careful is my middle name!”

Hunk cut in, confusion evident in his voice, “I thought your middle name was Alejandro?”

Laughter echoed over the coms, and Lance pouted, whining, “Hunk, buddy! Who’s side are you on, man?”

Dodging another laser, Hunk replied, “The one where all of us get out of this alive? Does that count?” He dodged a few more lasers, firing a few shots of his own, panting slightly.

“Hunk’s got a point, guys,” Shiro reminded them. “Can the chatter, those lasers are still coming.” There was acknowledgement from all the other paladins, and Shiro sighed in relief. “Alright, here’s the plan. Lance, Hunk, you guys hang further back, try to pick them off from a distance. Stop anything that gets past us. Keith, Pidge, your lions are faster and smaller, I need you covering me. Take out the little guys. Black and I will target those turrets. Understood?” Confirmation came from the others, and everyone moved into position.

Everything went well for several minutes. Shiro had knocked out all but two of the turrets, and Lance and Hunk’s teamwork had destroyed at least a dozen big cruisers and battleships. Some of the larger ships had started to retreat, and Lance and Hunk targeted those as well. As one was coming up on Lance’s left, he saw Green, down and to his far right, with a small ion cannon pointed right at its flank. Making a split-second decision, Lance turned his lion and fired, taking out the ion cannon and saving Pidge. He started to turn back to his original position, but he was too late. Before he could react, a laser cut straight through his hull, sending poor Blue tumbling. Lance was strapped in, so he stayed in place, but as the others’ yells came over the com, a piece of debris slammed into the back of his head, and everything went black.


When Lance came to, the battle was over. Black was towing Blue down to the planet’s surface, where the castle and the planet’s inhabitants were waiting. As he came back to his senses, Lance began to hear the others.

“Lance! Kiddo, can you hear me?”

“Lance, buddy! Come on, tuagane, wake up, man!”

“Lance, you big doofus! Wake up!” (“Pidge!” “Sorry.”)

“LANCE! Lance, please! Dammit, Lance! Wake up! Talk to me!”

Finally, finally, Lance could move a little. “Ugh…. Keith?”

To Lance’s aching head, it was as though a full orchestra had exploded onto the coms.

“Alright, Lance! You’re okay!”

“You asshole! Don’t do that to me ever again, you hear me?!” (“Pidge! Language!”)

Hunk was now blubbering incoherently, Pidge was raging, and Keith was strangely silent. Just as the noise was getting to be too much, Shiro’s voice cut through the mayhem, muffling everything else like a blanket, “Lance. Are you okay? Can you answer me? You were out for a while, buddy. I need to know if you’re okay.”

Lance took several deep breaths, settling the nausea his headache was causing, before answering softly, “I-. I think I’m okay, guys. I have a killer headache, and I’m a little nauseous and light-headed, but I’m okay. Might have a concussion, though.” With that, most of his energy spent, he slumped back into his seat.

“Okay, Lance,” Shiro breathed. “Do you think you can stay awake for me for a few minutes? We’re almost back to the castle. I’m sure you’re really tired, but if you can put off sleeping for just a couple of minutes, I want Coran to check you over in person. They’ve already got a pod waiting and everything. Can you do that, kiddo?” Lance murmured an assent, and Shiro let out a breath he hadn’t realized he had been holding. “Alright, buddy. Thank you.”

Shiro looked at his monitors. The landing was coming up. “Alright, buddy, we’re right there. I’m going to put you down now, in 3 – 2 – 1.” With that, the blue lion was placed very gently on the ground next to the other three lions, which had already landed. Once Blue’s jaw opened, Hunk and Coran rushed inside, while Shiro landed Black. By the time Shiro had left the cockpit, Lance was out of his lion, and Allura was talking to the natives, Keith beside her.

Shiro went to Lance first. Looking Lance over, he glanced to Coran. “Coran, how is he? He was out for at least fifteen minutes.”

Coran smiled gently. “He’ll be just fine, number one. A few vargas in a pod and he’ll be good as new.”

“Thank you, Coran. Hunk, will you help him?”

“You don’t even have to ask.” With a small smile, Hunk pulled one of Lance’s arms over his shoulder and started moving towards the castle. Coran followed.

Now that he knew Lance was safe, Shiro could deal with the natives. Or, more accurately, deal with Keith, who looked to be one wrong word away from pulling out his bayard. As Shiro came closer to the group, he started to hear some of the conversation.

“-yes, you’ve said that the boy’s role is to be the blue paladin, but what else does he even do? What does he contribute? From what I saw, all he did was hang back for most of the fight, and make jokes for the rest of it!” Ah. Now he was starting to understand Keith’s murderous expression. Not to mention the low, continuous growl coming from Blue.

Allura cut him off. “It is not your place to question not just my choice of paladins, but the choices of the lions themselves. The blue lion chose Lance, and as such-“

“Princess Allura, I meant no disrespect, to you or the lions. I was simply concerned. Voltron is the universe’s only real hope of stopping the Galran Empire, and if its members are not efficient, perhaps-“

Shiro cut in, mouth a hard line, shoulders tense, as he stopped Keith from doing anything rash. “If you know about the joking, then you were listening to the coms. If you were paying attention, you would have noticed that I gave the order for the blue and yellow lions to hang back. Those two lions are larger, and therefore slower, but their weapons are strong. In this situation, they were much better suited for stopping the larger ships, and picking off stragglers. Lance especially works best at a distance. He’s the best shooter we have. Long-distance is his forte. Those assignments were the most efficient use of our resources.” The native was about to interrupt again, and Shiro bit out “On top of all of that, Lance was injured defending your planet. You would do well to remember that, and to show him the respect he deserves.”

When he was done, Shiro turned to Keith. Keith was still seething. “Shiro, did you hear what he was saying about Lance?”

“I heard him, Keith.”

“Lance could have died, Shiro! And that guy was treating him like a waste of space. Space garbage!”

“I know that, Keith.” Shiro’s voice was strained. He was angry, too, but there was nothing they could do.

“I’m gonna go back over there and teach that guy a lesson-“ Keith started to turn back around, bayard in hand, but was spun around by Shiro’s hand on his shoulder.

“You can’t attack the guy, Keith. He’s a diplomat. Let Allura handle it.”

“Can’t I just punch him in the face?” Keith pleaded.

“NO, Keith.”

“What if I just break his nose a little?”

“I said, NO, Keith.” Shiro spun to face him. “We can’t do anything. Allura can handle it. Now let’s go back to the castle. Lance will be healed in a few hours. I saw how anxious you were. I know you want to see him. And when he wakes up, I’m sure he’ll want to see you, too.” With that, Keith relaxed, sighing in defeat, and went on to the castle.

Shiro stood there for a moment, composing himself, before moving in the same direction. Before he got there, he heard one last parting shot. “You know,” the native drawled, excessively loud, “if the so-called blue paladin were a better pilot, he wouldn’t have been hurt in the first place-“

CRUNCH. Before anyone could move, Shiro snapped. He had rushed back, pulled back a fist, and slammed it straight into the obnoxious native’s nose. Without a word, Shiro wiped the blood off his hand onto the man’s shirt, and walked straight back into the castle. The look on that jerk’s face was definitely worth the difficulty Allura had negotiating an alliance several days later, and when Lance woke up, his laughter over the story gave Keith the brightest smile Shiro had seen on his face in years.


If you guys want me to write what happened in between when Lance was unconscious, let me know.

gif isn’t mine!

Captain James ‘Bucky’ Barnes was a peculiar man, how he sailed the seas for most of his 27 years. He was born at sea, he would most likely die at sea. All pirates, including those in the farthest corners of the maps, had heard of the infamous Captain. You? You were the governor’s daughter, secretly hoping to be taken out to seas and to be set free.

~

“Please- Sir I’ll do anything, please just let me come with you.” You hoped he wouldn’t turn out too bad if he let you stay, but if he didn’t…

“Well, miss Y/L/N, welcome aboard the St. Brooklyn…”

~

Tell me, sweetheart… Why would a rich and beautiful girl like you, run away from a place like Port Royal, hm?” Bucky asked, you and him both were sitting in the Captain’s cabin, it was cosy, full of gold and silver alike, lavish furniture- this man was definitely not like most of the other pirates that your father had told you about; poor, dirty, unhygienic.  

You studied him for a moment, “I, er, I have been stuck in Port Royal since I was a babe, I haven’t gone further than 2 nautical miles outside the border, Sir, I have a thirst for freedom and to put it quite frankly, your boat called to me.” You fiddled with your fingers as you awaited his reply.

First of all, it is not a boat, my dear, secondly… there are plenty other ‘boats’ in that harbour-

Don’t ask me why I didn’t board the others- I would be… easily recognised. Everyone in Port Royal knows who I am, my friend Peter will be the only one to- wait… What did you do to the letter?

Bucky huffed. “What do you think I did with the blasted letter? I’m a wanted man. I’m not becoming wanted for kidnapping-

I’m 19- almost 20, well over a year over the legal I’m-allowed-to-make-my-own-decisions age, Sir, I assure you it won’t be kidnapping if I am the one who boarded your ship on my own will.” Bucky gave you a skeptical look then rolled his eyes.

As someone who had come across many a stupid person, he didn’t think you would be the type to run away- you had a perfect life- of course, he wasn’t in your boots, but you seemed intelligent, healthy, surrounded by protection and you most likely lived in a luxury mansion. What could possibly be wrong with your life?

Alas, he didn’t know a thing.

The need to be away from your home was clawing at your chest and it was annoying you to the point where you had tried to escape multiple times, only to be caught by your handmaiden- you had kept making up excuses to cover yourself.

Your father paid little to no attention to you once you had turned 18, he had arranged a marriage for you with Commodore Zemo, a man of fortune and wealth, he was 15 years your senior, though that was normal for any arranged marriage. The man was a weird one, to say the least.

If you’re going to stay on my ship, you’re going to have to know the way of the seas. You can’t just sit around and do nothing, as you would probably do back at Port Royal, you are the Governor’s daughter, after all.” There is a knock at the door, Bucky shouts a 'yes?’ and a handsome man with ebony hair and dark skin enters.

Y/N, this is my first mate, Sam Wilson, Sam… this is the stowaway I had to find.” You looked between both of them and shook Sam’s hand, he adorned a smile so sweet, but he had a firm grip to say the least.

Sam smiled and said a quiet hello. “Captain, we’re heading into rough waters, orders?

Hoist the sails, gain speed, it can’t be too bad,” Bucky smiled. “If anything gets a little rusty, we have Wanda.

Aye Cap.” Sam exited the cabin, as the door shut you could hear him yelling orders, and the scurrying of feet died down.

What is a ‘Wanda’, Sir?

Ha ha, Wanda is a witch we have onboard, a good friend of mine actually, ah, don’t look like that! She helps us keep the ship from capsizing when we head into the rough water.” Bucky grinned, he enjoyed seeing such a beautiful girl squirm hearing the word ‘witch’.

You had never been one to believe in magic, your father told you stories when he came back from his voyages to Tortuga, Brazil, Egypt, he would go for so long. You had skimmed the room once more to find a large globe in the corner.

May I?” you questioned, timidly. Bucky nodded in response, he furrowed his brow as your fingers danced along the curvature of the three-dimensional atlas, you had only come into contact with one of these in your 19 years, a much smaller one in your father’s office.

Tell me, Y/N, how educated are you on the modern charts?” You whipped your head around to see the cocky man leaning back in his chair, you could feel him eyeing you up and down as if he could read your body language. “I don’t have a Sea Artist, he pissed off a siren on the coast of Portugal, fell for their trap, he was a good man, though he never learned how to cut back on the humour when something serious was going on. Any chance you could help me out and be what I need most, and maybe more?

Sir, as a woman growing up with a Governor as a father, I have studied the maps since I was able to read and write. I know how to navigate throughout the entire world but-” You were cut off quickly when Bucky gave you a confused glare.

He intimidated you, only slightly, his tall manner and dark looks were different than the men you had encountered before. If you had to compare between you both, you would be the lamb and he the lion. His jaw was sharp and defined, as if carved by the sharpest of swords. His hair fell in bronze and brunette tresses across his forehead and you could swear you could see red in his cheeks, most likely sun stained from being at seas for so many years. It contrasted against his olive skin.

In all your mature years you had been exposed to drunken, ugly miscreants, he was by far the most beautiful man you had ever laid eyes upon, and you felt an alien sensation fluttering in your lower part of your stomach as he lifted from his chair, in that moment you had yet to be exposed to the ways of the world, you knew what intercourse was, you had been shown plenty of scientific diagrams, though you had no idea what this pleasant feeling was.

~

As Bucky’s legs carried him closer to the damsel in his cabin, he could smell a change in the air; it was you, you see Bucky was not just any normal human being; he could feel and know what anyone else was feeling, a good trait to have as a pirate. He could feel the blush spread from your bust to the tips of your ears, he could feel your heart fluttering behind your ribs as he neared you. As he spoke his breath gently whisped across your forehead.

Yet.. an innocent soul like you has never traveled the seas? Oh, darling, you will be of great use to me, I will show you the world beyond this one, just you wait.

~


A/N. So! Part 2, I hope everyone likes it, and enjoys reading it. Like i said this fic is gonna be a slow burn on both ends. Bucky is intrigued by Y/N, he knows she is an innocent soul looking for new things so HES GONNA GIVE EM TO HER AYEEEE

Why You Don’t Separate Lance from Keith

Anon: Klance where one of them gets separated from the team/captured during a mission and Shiro knows they’re overwhelmed so he’s calling for a retreat but the other goes on real epic badass rampage and takes down everyone and saves them and the team is just like woah they are Very In Love.

A/N: Sorry it took so long. Short and sweet because writing a lot of action is not one of my strong suits.


Everyone knew that between the two of them, Keith was the impulsive one. Even though couples tend to assimilate each other’s personalities to some degree, Lance was never one to jump into action so quickly.

But in desperate times, he still had his moments.

plance: lance overhears pidge talking to hunk about her crush on him :)

Plance is love, Plance is life. Bless you for this request!

Written as part of my 300 Follower Celebration! Thank you again :D



“Fine. But look, you can’t say anything to Lance.”

There were two things in this universe guaranteed to make Lance stop in his tracks: the appearance of someone hot, and the words ‘You can’t say anything to Lance.’ When both were a factor, well, it’d take a herd of charging weblum to get him to move.

Lance plants himself right outside the open hangar door and scoots as close as he can to the edge without being seen. If Hunk or, Alfor forbid, Pidge, caught him eavesdropping, there’d be hell to pay. Resisting is impossible, though, now that he’s heard his name roll off of Pidge’s lips. He would never let it be said that he left his curiosity unsatisfied.

Not that he’d meant to be listening in on a conversation not meant for him. He’d been working with Coran up on the bridge and Coran had tried reaching Pidge and Hunk down in the hangar. When they hadn’t responded - it was obvious why, now - Lance had generously volunteered to take a break from staring at system maps and ask Hunk and Pidge for the diagnostic readout Coran needed.

Given the circumstances, he doesn’t think Coran will mind waiting just a bit longer.

“I won’t say anything to Lance you don’t want me to,” Hunk says. Lance pouts - he knows Hunk’s loyal enough to keep his promise, but Hunk’s also his best friend. How is Lance supposed to ‘accidentally’ find out about whatever Pidge is telling Hunk if Hunk doesn’t let something slip?

He hears Pidge take a deep breath. “Okay,” she says.

nekonotaishou  asked:

Of the species of dinosaur that have been discovered in Australia, which is your favorite? Also which is your favorite extinct mammal from the time of people-less Australia?

As far as Aussie dinos go I don’t really have a favorite, but I guess I’d pick Australovenator, it just looks like is belongs up around Darwin to me.

Personally, our megafauna was far more interesting than our overgrown reptiles.

Thylacaleo, the marsupial lion, is my absolute favorite.

The theoretical jaw strength on these skulls is mind blowing. They would simply be terrifying to have roaming the landscape, but I love them. I got to see a bunch of their skeletons at the Naracoorte caves and was enamored with them ever since.

Fic idea 2 won!

I picked up my laptop to do homework and this fic fell out, oops

No one was outright saying that the crash was Lance’s fault, but their silence as just as incriminating as Keith and Lance supported most of Shiro’s weight to keep it off his broken ankle. 

“We need to get somewhere we can wait until the others can come for us,” Shiro gritted out through a tight jaw.

“Can’t we just stay by our Lions?” Lance asked, but Shiro shook his head.

“I already explained that would draw too much attention to us, Lance. Weren’t you listening?” Lance blinked a few times.

“Oh,” was all he replied. In truth, he hadn’t been listening–his head was pounding, and his whole left side had been badly burnt when he’d gotten out of his Lion. The crash had sparked a fire in the dry brush of the planet, and Lance hadn’t noticed it until he was already touching the fire.

“Keep up, Lance,” Keith bit. Lance bristled and opened his mouth to retort that he was doing the best he could, and that he probably had a concussion from where he’d his his head. Keith sounded less patient than their leader did, even though Shiro was the one who was hurt. Shiro was hurt–right. That’s why he couldn’t say anything. Shiro was injured and it was all Lance’s fault. 

So instead of explaining himself, Lance tried to step up his pace. However, he was already pushing it just by being upright, if he was being honest, and the quicker speed was making his head spin unbearably.

“Can we–” he tried to ask, but his mouth started to fill with thin, watery saliva before he could get the words out.

“Can we what?” Shiro asked, but Lance didn’t reply. Instead, he shoved Shrio into Keith hurriedly. 

Shiro grunted in pain as his ankle touched the ground, and Keith yelped in surprise.

“What the hell, Lance?!” Keith barked.

Lance was leaning one arm against a tree, clutching his side weakly.

“Lance?” Shiro tried. Lance started retching. It was several moments of dry-heaving before anything actually came up, and when it did, Shiro and Keith both winced at the liquid noise of vomit hitting the ground.

“Talk to me, buddy,” Shiro instructed, but he sounded very far away from Lance right now. He wanted to sleep, and swayed forward. “What’s going on?” Shiro sounded so, so desperate, and worried–Lance had already done enough to Shiro today. Forcing his eyes to remain open, he turned around, still leaning heavily on the tree, and pulled out his most winning smile.

“Must be the heat,” Lance lied, “Sorry about that. Did I hurt you, Shiro?” 

Shiro shook his head. “No, Lance; I’m fine. I think you should sit down for a minute. You’re not looking very well.”

When Lance shook his head, his whole body teetered dangerously to one side as he stumbled dangerously back toward Keith and Shiro to slide his arm back beneath Shiro’s own, taking on his weight once more. 

“M’good,” he slurred, “We’ve gotta… we were doing something.”

Shiro’s eyebrows pulled together in worry. “You don’t remember?”

Lance looked panicked. He couldn’t let Shiro down, not again. “Course I remember,” he dismissed, “’cause I take this seriously. What kind of paladin would I be if I forgot where we’re going?” 

Lance’s speech sounded downright drunk.

“Something’s seriously wrong,” he heard Shiro say. The black paladin was talking about him, he knew it, but trying to discern what he was saying to Keith was like trying to decipher a foreign language.

“We just gotta get where we’re goin’, then we’ll be good,” Lance tried to help. Another two steps forward found Lance plowing face first into the ground, and with no one able to catch him, he simply hit the floor with a sickening thunk.

“Lance?!” Shiro called, dropping to his knees carefully beside the boy. Now that he was able to see the back of the kid’s head, he noticed that his brown hair was matted with something dark and sticky…

“He was bleeding,” Keith observed. “Do you think he has a concussion?”

Shiro looked at Keith uncertainly. “It seems likely,” he admitted. “Why wouldn’t he say something?” Lance started to come around, his eyes fluttering with the strain of being awake.

“Lance, can you hear me?” Shiro called.

‘Loud and clear, cap’n,” Lance mumbled groggily. “Too loud.”

Shiro took the volume of his voice down a notch. “How’re you feeling? Are you with me?” he asked. 

“M’talkin’ to you,” he replied. 

“Incoherently,” Keith returned. “Lance, can you sit up?” Lance sighed heavily, but finally did so. “That’s good. Can you stand?” 

He didn’t look as certain about this request.

“What are you doing, Keith?! He’s got a concussion and he just collapsed; he’s not in any condition to walk.”

“We’ve got to get to safety somehow,” Keith argued, “And I can’t carry both of you. Either Lance has to walk, or we have to leave one of you here alone while I make two trips, and I don’t want to do that unless we absolutely have to.” Keith had a point. There was no way Lance would be able to fight off an attacker if he were left alone, and, though Shiro didn’t want to admit it, he himself probably couldn’t do that right now, either. He rubbed a hand down his face and sighed. 

“Okay. Lance, buddy. We need you to stand up.” Lance whimpered, and what Shiro knew he had to do next killed him inside a bit. “If you don’t stand up, then Keith is going to have to take you to safety alone, but that means that I’ll be left out here by myself. Do you want that to happen?” 

Lance’s eyes welled up with tears. Shit, shit, shit. Shiro hadn’t meant to do that. He immediately wished he could take it back.

“I’m sorry,” he apologized, scrambling to his feet as quickly as he could, “M’sorry, m’sorry Shiro,” he was muttering. It was barely even words at this point, just breathy, hitched syllables that sounded like he was on the verge of tears. Keith felt a little choked up, too.

“You’re doing good, Lance,” Keith reassured. “Don’t rush it; take your time.”

“Jus’ don’t leave Shiro alone here,” he begged. “Nobody gets left behind.”

Keith nodded. “Of course not. We’re not leaving either of you behind. You’re doing so well. Look at that; you’re standing.” And indeed he was, albeit shakily.

“There’s no way I can lean on him right now,” Shiro whispered to Keith, “he can barely hold himself up.” But Lance was suddenly underneath his arm again, supporting his weight.

“Lance, no,” Shiro chastised, “You’ve done enough. Stop.”

Lance was sweating profusely, and heat rolled off his body in waves. Shiro could feel the fever radiating from him. 

“Nobody get’s left behind,” Lance repeated, “Lilo and Stitch,” he continued blearily, “You’re my ohana, mi familia. Nadie se queda atrás.” Neither Keith nor Shiro had ever heard Lance speak Spanish before.

Lance’s pace was excruciating. They were unable to convince him to let go of Shiro, and he stumbled every so often, clutching his left side in agony. However, every time Keith or Shiro asked to see the wound, he refused to let them touch him.

“When it’s safe,” he kept repeating, and they figured it would have to do for now.

The three paladins managed to find a cave to wait in. It was mostly dry, but it had a good view of the planet, and it was secluded far enough away from the Lions that they figured it was their best bet at safety for now.

“Okay, Lance; let’s see your side,” Shiro asserted. Lance, however, was already trying (and failing) to bandage Shiro’s foot. Shiro winced as Lance’s uncoordinated hands grabbed at his foot, pretty clearly seeing double, in an attempt to stabilize the injury.

“I can handle that, Lance,” Keith reassured, “right now, you’re hurt worse. Show us your side.” Lance looked uncertainly at Shiro, who nodded, so he figured that maybe it was okay to let Keith look at his injuries, just for a minute. They really stung, but he knew fuzzily that it couldn’t possibly compare to the pain his leader was experiencing.

Lance needed help getting off his armor. Keith felt uncomfortable about it, but assisted anyway, and once he was finally able to look at him without a shirt on, he paled.

Large, angry burns covered his whole left side.

“Lance, holy… how did you carry me with burns like that?” Shiro asked, flabbergasted. 

Lance shrugged. He let his forehead come to a rest against Keith’s shoulder, slumping forward in utter exhaustion. He’d drained everything he had getting Shiro back here to the cave, but now that they were safe, he figured maybe it was okay to nap.

He didn’t register Keith’s panicked voice telling him to stay awake, or his cool hands palming his forehead and announcing that he was burning up. However, Shiro liked to think that the small, relaxed smile that spread across his face when he stroked the blue paladin’s hair and told him he’d done a good job was not a coincidence.

Quick Cryptid Snippet: The Marsupial Lion

Thylacoleo carnifex, more commonly known as the Marsupial Lion, is an extinct carnivorous tree dwelling marsupial that called the Australian outback home during the late Pleistocene era. The giant mammal was the largest carnivore to ever exist in Australia and is thought to be one of the largest marsupials to exist anywhere in the world. Scientists believe the creature went extinct along with the other Megafauna of the continent as little as 46,000 years ago. But if this is true, why do some people still claim to have seen them in the vast openness of Australia?

In the mid-2000’s, multiple residents in the town of Tumbulgum (located in New South Wales) claimed that they had not only seen the Marsupial Lion, but that it was actually “stalking” the surrounding area and feeding on the unfortunate wildlife. Witnesses describe seeing a large creature the size of a lion but with “cramped” legs like that of a marsupial which would lead to a slight waddle while walking. The fur was often seen to be brindled (subtle stripes of irregular dark color) with tannish-yellow spotting and it had a long thick tail. The creatures face had a wide, thick nose like that of a wombat and large incisors (both upper and lower) protruding from the mouth.

According to scientists who have studied the skeletons of long dead Marsupial Lions, a full grown specimen would stand nearly 3ft at the shoulder and measured nearly 5ft long from head to tail. It is believed that these large carnivores could weigh anywhere between 250-360lbs. The Lion also possessed a large tail like that of a kangaroo which many scientists believe would have allowed it to support its full body weight thus allowing it the ability to slash and grab at prey with its long retractable claws. Once in hand, the creature would pull its victim toward its blade like molars which easily allowed it to tear flesh and break bone. Testing the bite force on the collected jaws of these creatures showed that the Marsupial Lion had the strongest bite of any animal in the world either living or dead.

So could this creature that many claim died out thousands of years ago still be around? While one may be quick to say no, it should be noted that there have been countless reported sightings of many different types of extinct Australian Megafauna for hundreds of years. People to this day claim to see supposedly long dead giant birds, reptiles, and mammals while out in the bush miles away from any other living soul. This could truly mean that there are a few species thought to be extinct thriving away in the uninhabited parts of the country. 

Still not into this theory and need a little more convincing? Take into consideration that Australia only has a population of 24+ million people and over 85% of that total population lives along the coast as 40% of the country is listed as uninhabitable for human living due to high temperatures, barren landscapes, and lack of water or shelter. That’s 40% of an entire continent void of humans and free to whatever long extinct animal wants to claim it and remain undetected while doing so.

Ao3


Alright, so the bonding time he had with Blue didn’t go that great. It was fine, it was the first time they tried it – well, second, but the first time was pretty much an emergency. They had to bond a little or else the Galra would have erased them from the universe.

So, yeah, bonding only happened for the sake of survival.

Keith led Lance out of the cockpit and walked beside him while they meandered throughout the castle. If Lance ignored the way Keith’s jacket shifted (he could hear it since it was the only leather thing on this ship), he could have almost passed the silence off as comfortable. Lately, the two of them have been spending more time together, but it wasn’t a major thing. Like, it wasn’t as if they were actively seeking each other out, it just happened. Mostly when Lance disappeared for too long and Keith came and found him, but after that when Keith knew he was okay, he stuck around. Lance was ready to call them friends in terms of their relationship instead of teammates. Which was a significant shift from teammate and rival.

Keith’s jacket squeaked a little for the umpteenth time and Lance swore it was as if Keith was turning to look at him, think about it, and then look away.

“Okay, what gives.”

He heard Keith stumble slightly before recovering. “Nothing.”

“Keith, you jacket makes a noise every time you turn to me, and it’s happened like five times. It’s obviously something.” Lance nudged him in what he hoped was Keith’s arm.

The red paladin grumbled something under his breath.

“Ya know, I may be blind, and my hearing is wonderful, but it’s not that great. You gotta speak up, Keith.”

Keep reading

Things I think about in regards to Voltron:

While it’s possible to exit a Lion from the top of the head (s2e1, how Keith leaves Red), seemingly the only way to enter is through the mouth- which is usually only accessible if the Lion lowers its head and opens wide. 

The mouth, which contains jaws and teeth that can crush a spaceship, and also on every single Lion, has a beam cannon mounted in the back of the throat.

It makes me wonder if Allura’s strong warning in s1e1 about how the bond between Lion and Paladin cannot be forced is not trying to preserve the sacredness of the Lions or describing any kind of ideal bond as much as it is a very matter-of-fact statement that if these creatures don’t like you, they can in fact kill you very easily.

Zarkon challenges and tries to dominate Black in a battle of wills, but even he seems to hold the attitude that the only possible way to survive Black is to be strong enough to control her entirely, and try to tell me there wasn’t fear in his eyes in s2e6 when Black blasts him. I doubt he’d be nearly so confident to stake his claim without the backing of the druids, and even then, we see it’s not only a very arduous exercise for both them and Zarkon himself, it outright stops working halfway through season 2.

In the season 1 finale, Shiro experiences firsthand how bad it feels to get “thrown from the saddle” by a Lion- but the matter stands that Black was going very easy on him. Spitting him out like that is one thing. If Black had ever actually held him in contempt… once again, she could’ve killed him very easily.

This is not something we see very overtly, or in practice. Even at the start of their relationship, Lance walks fearlessly into Blue’s mouth, past that cannon. From our perspective, we don’t even see him take note of it or register it as a threat, and I think this is in part a testament to Lance as a person, but it’s also a testament to how perfect a fit these Paladins are for their Lions, and how strong that bond really is. Even Keith, who receives the coldest reception from his Lion at first, is immediately happy to connect with Red when it does happen. (“Good kitty. Let’s roll.”)

It suggests there’s something very nurturing and safe-feeling about the presence of the Lion, as soon as it connects with the person. And unlike, say, the Baku from s2e2, who seems to use that feeling to instill lethargy and obedience in those it controls, the Lions seem to mean it as a genuine expression of love. 

But I think it’s still noteworthy that this bond is deeply essential the more you consider what the Lions could do if confronted by the unworthy. Being immediately vaporized is about the nicest way that could go- considering, as I’ve pointed out before, Black was able to, at her own leisure, completely take over Shiro’s senses to a degree that the only warning we as an audience have that it isn’t real is that Allura, on the castle, doesn’t take note of Black moving.

so I had a lot of deep feelings about two weeks ago and wrote this sheith WIP that I… most likely will never finish, so I just decided to post it as is, lmao~


“You still have feelings for him,” Allura says. Blinking, Shiro tears his eyes away from Keith and finds Allura observing him with a knowing gaze.

“Still?” he crosses his arms and tries to ignore the tiny smirk playing upon her lips.

“Shiro,” she says matter-of-factly with a pointed look. “I’ve known for quite some time now.”

Shiro shakes his head in defeat, admittedly impressed. “That obvious, huh?”

“Well,” Allura says with a teasing smile. “You aren’t exactly subtle.”

Shiro can’t argue with this, so he smiles back and shrugs.

“When are you going to tell him?” she prompts, eyes shifting over to the rest of the paladins where Lance is clearly entertaining them with an amusing story. Keith leans against the jaw of the Red Lion, listening to their fellow teammate with an adorable smile on his face. At the sight of his ease and comfort in being with their new family like this, Shiro feels a warm glow spreading in his chest. It isn’t too long ago that Keith had only reserved that smile for him. They’ve all come such a long way.

Despite all this, he feels his lungs deflate when he thinks about the prospect of telling Keith how he feels. It would change everything and there would be no going back. Not to mention, Shiro couldn’t help hearing Keith’s voice echo in his mind, Shiro, you’re like a brother to me.

Like a brother…

Sighing, Shiro shrugs and looks back at Allura.

“He doesn’t feel the same way,” he says in a resigned tone.

“So you’ve told him already?” Allura raises her eyebrows in surprise.

“No,” Shiro says, watching as Keith’s smile turns into a small chuckle. Although the sound doesn’t carry over to them, Shiro can hear the soft, deep rumble of Keith’s voice in his ears. “But I know him.”

He hears an exasperated groan from Allura and turns to face her with eyebrows raised in confusion.

“What?”

“You guys are so hopeless,” she says, shaking her head.

clovermaster-11  asked:

Maybe Lance is out on a mission with Hunk or something, and Haggar casts a weird spell thing that reverses their emotions, except Lance is even bouncier and hyper than before? Idk that sounds cool

I’ve actually seen a few prompts like this and meant to write with one, but this is better!
Thank you, and I hope you enjoy!
—–

Lance groaned, stepping out of the yellow lions jaw as she let out her cub and his friend.

“How do you NOT break your back in that thing?” Lance reached his arms up over his head to stretch, a few pips sounding.

Hunk smiled and shrugged, “I think it’s comfortable. Maybe our lions chose us more specifically than we thought.”

The yellow paladin held a small black disc in his palm, which had green coding etched into it.

Just a quick little virus that Pidge cooked up that Lance and Hunk were sent to deposit on a small Galra ship.

Easy peasy, in and out.

Lance adjusted his helmet, walking across the cold terrain lof the planet. “So, we get in and plant this thing onto a wall, and it does the rest?”

Hunk nodded to his friend, “Should take affect soon after that.”

The device would send distracting infections to the ships main files and systems, while back at the castle Pidge awaited the information it would steal during the process.

The perfect plan to get information that they needed, and quickly too.

The mission went exactly as planned. Lance was in and out, Hunk didn’t even have to shoot any guards.

But it didn’t stay perfect.

On their flight out of the planets atmosphere, a sudden shock and jolt rattled the Yellow lion.

Purple shot through her systems, and into Lance and Hunk. Red lights and loud alarms immediately blared, warning of the attack.

“We gotta get out of here!!!”

Yellow took off, and although she wasn’t the fastest of the lions she managed to obtain safety.

The two Paladins ended up having to emergency land on a planet to make sure everything was okay, and to contact the castle about what had happened.

But something was up.
Hunk was a little bit too confident and didn’t think through much of the choices he made.

Why land on a planet when you could immediately go to the castle?

Lance was a little too bubbly.
I mean, he always was but this was something different. It was more amplified and there was just…it was hard to describe.

When the castle tracked them and landed, it was a bit of a shock to see the Paladins conditions.

“We believe the yellow lion was hit by one of Haggars spells, and it went to her passengers as well.” Allura explained. “It appears to have switched you to the opposite personality, Hunk.”

Everyone glanced at each other in slightly question, a mutual thought running around.

If personalities were switched, why was Lance not affected? If anything he was happier and more flirty than ever.

That was far from the opposite of the same smiling and happy Lance that was usually all around.

What the team didn’t know was about the masks that the blue paladin put up, the fake smiles and happiness that he showed them.

Inside he was a dark mass of something negative that had been engrained into his system and ruined him.

A self hatred and such a low self esteem that clawed at his brain and kept him up at night.

The same thing that made his eyes sting when someone gave an awful comment. Or a rude gesture.

It was all his mask.

If only Lance could remember, when the spell wore off, how to truly be that happy.

But for now… let the boy smile.
