my heart aches for the friends and family of @dostmotherknowyou, an incredibly talented and beautiful individual who recently passed away after an extensive battle with cancer. i had never personally talked to kip but their art was a constant inspiration to me and seeing them interact with everyone on my dash in such a lovely way never failed to make my day. their soul was just as colorful and vibrant as their artwork, if not more. they managed to remain positive despite what they were going through and served as both an excellent example and a light for this community. they may be gone but they will definitely continue to leave a positive mark on this world. thank you, kip, for sharing your beautiful creations with the world and for being such a positive influence to us all
… and all of the sudden, it’ll hit you out of nowhere that your heart doesn’t feel heavy anymore. you’re not waiting for the next thing to go wrong. sometimes you’re tired and sometimes you cry, but living doesn’t feel like a chore anymore.
Okay, so this took me forever to write because I wanted to go with a specific theme, so this is Han/Leia pre-ESB:
There’s a celebration after the medal ceremony on Yavin, before the base goes on to another planet, and Han is absolutely, totally leaving, until he sees Leia walking towards the exit, obviously in a sad mood, and he’s had some alcohol and his mind is kinda fuzzy but he asks her for a dance, since he’s leaving soon, and she reluctantly accepts it, only he remembers he doesn’t know how to dance this, and it makes her less sad and more- well, angry
But then she starts laughing and just goes along with his awkward made-up dance and they actually get on pretty well on the dance floor, but really, only on the dance floor
and Han doesn’t know if it’s the alcohol or the music or the princess laughing, but he decides that they could stay with the rebels a bit longer, he can see Chewie’s made some friends and all that
On the new base they’re on a faraway planet where it just rains all the time and Leia’s nagging him about him joining the Alliance and they get in a fight and he should mind that everyone hears it but he doesn’t care, he can get supplies for his ship even if he isn’t an officer, especially if said supplies are needed because of some mission he ran with the princess
He even goes out to the rain to see if she’ll stop talking, just for a moment, because that diplomatic voice of hers can get really annoying after a while except she actually follows him and he tries not to notice the way the uniform hugs her body or how her hair looks when it’s wet but hey, he’s only a man and she’s, well, a woman, and he makes some lewd comment and he swears he’s never seen her blush so much
But she stops talking and goes back to the camp, so that is one way of shutting her up
Never mind that he has many more ideas of how to shut her up, but maybe he should keep those to himself
He does leave afterwards to do a quick smuggling run but he’s back and Leia barely raises her eyes to acknowledge his return, which makes him so angry, didn’t she want him to officially join her suicide rebellion and now she doesn’t even care?
Which is just his luck when he’s asked to transport her to a nearby planet so she can make some connections but of course his ship is notorious now, and of course the princess is number 1 on the list of the empire’s wanted
And no, he didn’t get shot at just to protect her, Chewie can say whatever he wants, but the shot on his arm was just– superficial, whereas the princess is, well, she’s a princess, of a planet that doesn’t exist anymore, but he thinks that perhaps she should just get better at the staying alive thing because he won’t be around all the time to protect her
But she actually acts real nice to him after that, and she even visits him at the med bay afterwards and only rolls her eyes once when he asks if she’s come here to play doctor with him but ouch, his arm actually hurts and they tell him he’s gonna have to stay overnight for the bacta to act and heal his wound
Anyway, they sort of– kind of develop a friendship after that, and it’s nice because she doesn’t shout at him all the time, just occasionally, and sometimes she even has dinner on the Falcon with him and Chewie and Luke
But of course she is always making fun of his ship, and Han feels infuriated half the time but he’s seen that sort of glint in her eyes when she’s talking about the Falcon and he thinks that maybe she likes his ship, a little bit
He does not, in any way, notice how rarely she smiles, but he makes her laugh sometimes, and he thinks that he makes her feel happier than Luke does, maybe
But she’s Luke’s girl, sort of, if Luke acted on it, maybe, but hey, she can make her own decisions, right? It doesn’t hurt to flirt a little
And she actually flirts back, most of the time, in a weird way, but he thinks he’s forgotten how to flirt because when he’s with her he doesn’t think and says the wrong thing but sometimes, he thinks that maybe he says the right thing because she looks up at him and smiles and can’t meet his eye
And maybe that’s why he just– keeps returning, from a mission that’s supposed to be his last but ends up being just one more to add to the list of missions he’ll run for her, with her, just because she requested, and because it gives him one more reason to stay alive and make sure she stays alive too
Because maybe, well, maybe in the future, and maybe not so far into the future, she’ll see that a princess like her and a guy like him could maybe… well, he doesn’t know what, exactly, because he’s no royalty, but maybe they could just be… something… together
-Alright, calculating your route. Let’s make sure you pass plenty of opportunities for pit stops! Oh, and food joints as well!
-You missed your turn! I told you not to miss your turn. I gave you a ten mile in advance warning. But you missed your turn. How could you miss your turn? It’s not like I didn’t tell you. I did tell you. Your turn was back there. You need to turn around now.
-You may not be aware of this but you’re in the middle of a highway with a toll. Just thought I would tell you.
-TURN LEFT NOW! -Ahaha, just kidding- keep going 5 more miles :3 *technology dab*
-Oh, your in a rush? *takes you on the slowest route*
-Working just fine. JUST KIDDING. Re-Calculating route.
-He’s the GPS that takes you right into a building, and after you crash tells you to make a legal U-Turn when available.
-The nice GPS. The one you see in the ads that work perfectly.
-Very rarely messes up, rarely gets lost. Except, he’s outdated and doesn’t sync to modern day maps.
-”You can take a right up here, and then proceed for 3 miles” :D
-In really rural areas sometimes he gets lost. And it can feel like a year before you finally realize you’re being led to a road that no longer exists. Oops, it’s almost like he hasn’t been on Earth in a year or something.
-Pidge is the road rage, salty GPS.
-”There’s construction up ahead so I GUESS you’re going to have to take the detour.”
-”DON’T PULL OVER HERE, YOU NEED TO MAKE A LEFT”
-”QUIT CHANGING DIRECTIONS!”
-Gives you the perfect route.
-But don’t you dare go off course when he’s operating. Because Keith is a vicious annoying GPS when your trying to make your own path.
-”I told you not to take the highway! It’s your fault your stuck in traffic now. Who are you Lance? Lance stop driving the car.”
-”TURN AROUND ALREADY”
-”If you do not make this turn I’m going to lead you off a cliff.”
ok so today i was in public and i had earbuds in which is nothing unusual right
but then this old white dude comes up to me and goes “young people these days are so uneducated, i bet you’re listening to that stupid crap they call pop, get good taste and listen to classical music”
i’ve actually never had anything like this happen to me here in canada so it was super jarring like???????? ok chill??????????????
so i had the pleasure of informing him i’m classically trained in the piano and violin, listen to almost exclusively classical music, and in fact am listening to poulenc’s clarinet sonata
literally the look on his face was priceless. ah, sweet sweet victory
but this whole thing makes me angry bc, like, him! he’s the type of person who pushes people away from classical music and reinforces the stereotype that classical musicians are stuffy, pretentious, old white dudes who need to get off their high horses
gosh i love the smell of elitism in the mornings

Hey babes, my name is Emily. I’ve dedicated my life to perfecting the art of procrastination, and the skills it takes to be the best of the best when it comes to napping. I wanna do my mum proud. I also wish I were Regina George so I could say one time I met John Stamos on a plane, and he told me I was pretty. aim: sparr.w
