katie mcgrath/supercorp fans, we need to have a tiny chat.
i’m assuming (hoping, mostly) that the majority of fans that are doing this are young, but yall really need to cool it a bit with trying to speculate and dig into katie’s personal life. she is obviously a very private person, if her lack of social media, and her stating as such in interviews is anything to go by. and apart from that, it’s just… incredibly rude? and weird. and a boundary that needs not to be pushed. (this goes for all actors/musicians/etc. fyi, holy shit! it’s not a new concept.)
like, it’s great that more people are becoming fans of hers! but ho boy, some of the stuff yall are saying and doing just isn’t cool. just, relax a little. leave her personal life alone. it’s not that hard.
also, this isn’t actually a problem like digging into her personal life is, but can yall just cool it with the kashy mcgra thing? it’s how her name is pronounced. just, relax.
Shiro is actually really sarcastic and it takes the whole team by surprise when he blurts out with a “No Shit, Sherlock.” after a particularly stupid remark.
Keith is a closet anime nerd. Question him on anything Naruto, Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, Fullmetal Alchemist, Gundam Wing and Fruits Basket and he will give you precise information.
Only Shiro knows this.
Pidge is really flexible and gymnastic. It’s part of the reason Pidge was able to sneak into the Garrison so easily.
Hunk has a great singing voice. He has been known to belt out ‘Never Had a Friend Like Me’ when cooking.
Lance is good with body language. He can tell a lot by the way a person holds themselves.
It’s also why he will back off the flirting if he sees the other person is truly uncomfortable.
Allura has a knack of getting into and out of trouble when she leaves the ship. According to Coran, she gets it from her father.
Coran knows that he’s weird. Even for Altean standards.
He takes joy in the expressions of other people.
Allura went on a solo mission once. She returned with the objective and a life ban from sixteen different bars. No one knows how since she only went to one place.
She’s not allowed to go on any more solo missions.
Shiro was almost married off to a spoilt Princess who’s parents and government were really looking to control Voltron. He only got out of it because Hunk (who panicked) told them that Shiro was engaged to Pidge.
Pidge thought it was hysterical and was pretty chill about the whole thing until the Princess was overheard saying that Shiro could do much better than the ‘tiny weak green Paladin who looks so odd and stupid’.
Pidge took the term ‘passive-aggressive’ to a whole new level against the Princess who couldn’t retaliate without making herself or the royal family look bad.
Afterwards, Pidge was permanently banned from the planet by team vote.
Lance and Keith actually did get Alien Married due to cultural misunderstandings. It’s the source for a lot of jokes within the team.
Lance’s grandma found out and wasn’t happy. She keeps sending Lance messages about when he’s ‘going to make an honest man out of that nice Keith boy’.
Keith gets messages from Lance’s sisters telling him he could do much better but welcome to the family anyway.
Hunk became a king for two weeks on a remote planet before getting overthrown.
He was okay with it. “Too much paperwork. How did your father do it, Allura?”
Due to a technological mishap, Pidge has seen all the other paladins naked and likes to bring it up at opportune moments.
Coran once managed to save Allura and the Paladins by singing a love song and causing several enemies to burst into tears.
Request: Hi, I’m the anon who asked you about the John requests. I sent a request where your father was a police officer and quite high in power, he was after the peaky blinders but he didn’t know that you were seeing John secretly and when he finds out, he flips. Thank you xx
Found Out - John Shelby
You moved to Small Heath when you were only six years old. Your mother had died the year before and your father, desperate for good work, took a position as a police inspector in Small Heath. You were an only child and your father never remarried, instead he worked all the time. The older you got the more protective your father became, asking after each person you saw and requiring that you were in the house before sundown.
He told you that the streets were dangerous. Especially as the war came to a close and the men returned from France and the Shelbys returned to Birmingham. By then you were an adult, living in a rented room above a florist in Small Heath and working as a telegraphist. Even though you were living on your own and supporting yourself your father seemed determined to monitor each part of your life. Which was why, when you got a boyfriend, you didn’t tell him.
It wouldn’t be my cooking if we didn’t mess with it, though (but then aren’t wild improvisation and dubious ingredients the spirit of the thing?). Apparently even white chocolate is beyond some supermarkets here if you don’t want it with any nuts or crispy bits or strawberry yogurt filling or whatever, let alone such extravagance as white chocolate chips. So when we did find plain white chocolate elsewhere, we (read: my sister) had to grate it all, turning it from stress baking into stressful baking. It was so worth it though. Aside from that, didn’t find any dark chocolate syrup, so what we swirled into it was regular chocolate sauce, which probably made the cake a biiit sweeter than what toooldforthisbutstill described.
And then the sauce. I think by now you can imagine our success in looking for double cream (is that even a thing in Germany?), a quick search of substitutions suggested mascarpone, and when we realized that oh right, it should be sauce, we added regular cream to that. Also I… kind of forgot that we didn’t have cardamom until the moment I was frantically rooting through the cupboards for it, so that’s not in there either.
Final verdict, though: delicious, gooey, probably your best choice for food coma by chocolate.
And a very happy birthday to me!!! @katie-dub this is absolutely the best birthday present!!! Thank you so so so much, my birth month twinny!! such a wonderful surprise to find this waiting for me when I got home! ❤️❤️❤️ You are absolutely amazing and I couldn’t have had such a great birthday without you! 🍻🎉🎊🎁
i love how everyones like “Lance would totally have tattoos in the future” because i totally see that but i also see current Pidge just walking through a market on like a day off and passing a tattoo shop and gives it like 0.5 seconds of thought before walking in
At this point you might need to hold an intervention with @klanced ... things are getting a bit crazy.
If its an intervention you want, it is an intervention you shall receive.
@klanced We are here to support you and love you Katie, but this situation is getting out of hand. This intervention is not because we are angry, but because we are worried about you. It is time you take responsibility for your actions, and tell us what exactly caused you to act this way.
