Also did anyone else catch the parallel of Clarke checking on the trikru sides wounds and then giving Bellamy a look when she realized they couldn’t save him with the scene of Atom dying and Clarke doing the same exact thing.
Thranduil: Legolas, you are growing into such a handsome elf.
Legolas: Thank you, Dad. Now what did you do now?
Thranduil: Really, Legolas, you are too suspicious. I know we live in a perilous world and trust is hard to come by, but I am your father. You have known me all your life.
Legolas: I know, Dad. You have been a wonderful and giving father. What did you do?
Legolas: Stop it.
Thranduil: I signed you up for summer camp. You get to go on a hike to a large volcanic mountain to throw a piece of jewelry inside. Sounded like something you’d enjoy. I hear there will be lots of orcs and oliphants to kill. You love that. If you don’t die, don’t forget to write.
We succeeded in taking that picture, and, if you look at it, you see a dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives. The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilizations, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there – on a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.
The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light.
[…] To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.
Imagine Voltron in its first fight against Prince Lotor, and Lotor somehow is able to comunicate (maybe he got one of his cronies to hack Voltron’s communication system). So the entire time Voltron is fighting, they hear Lotor making snide comments in the background, like “Is that the best you have?” “My father must have been weak if he couldn’t squash you like the bugs you are.” And it looks like the Galra are going to win, and Voltron is about to lose when Lotor makes a remark about how, after he kills Voltron, earth is next one to go.
And Lance fucking looses it.
Suddenly, enemy ships are being cut and frozen left and right, the number of Galra ships decreasing rapidly. All the while Lance is screaming over the intercom, saying things in English and Spanish alike. But everyone, including Lotor, gets the gist of what he is trying to say:
“Get anywhere near earth and I will fuck you up.”
Lotor never hacked into Voltron’s communication system again.
-One time Mutsuki woke up Urie in the middle of the night and asked him really shyly if he could sleep with him and even though he answered the door all grumpy he just blushed and rubbed his face and said “sure”
-When Mutsuki is on his period Urie always covers for him, sneaking him aspirin and telling people he’s out doing errands when he’s actually curled up in a ball in his room
-Urie secretly keeps track of all the food Mutsuki likes and dislikes and grocery shops accordingly
-Mutsuki feels guilty because when Urie found out about him he thought he would tell the whole house
-Back at the Chateau sometimes they’d both be awake at odd hours of the night and they have surreal secret-spilling sessions in the living room and giggle and tell stupid jokes and the next morning Urie is always really distant out of embarrassment
-Mutsuki almost told him about his childhood once but didnt
-Urie almost told him about his dad once but didnt
-Mutsuki used to have to wash all of his own laundry despite the rest of the house doing theirs together because he couldnt risk them finding out about him by seeing his binder but now he trusts Urie to help him with laundry sometimes
-Since they moved out of the Chateau Urie misses seeing Mutsuki every day so he’ll go out of his way at the branch office to pass him in the hallway
-Sometimes they both have the urge to visit Haru at night and wind up having another late night secret session and Urie has been trying to find a way to make that an appropriate time to propose
-Mutsuki told him part of what happened with Torso and Urie cried and hugged him really hard and wanted so badly to propose to him then to show him that he wasnt somehow less valuable now, but he didnt know how to say the right words
-Mutsuki likes to think of Urie as the new quinx dad and really admires him for keeping the group together after Haise left
-They both try to find excuses to meet up and at this point they’re half a step away from dating but neither can admit it
-Saiko is convinced that they’re a couple and has snuck condoms into both of their pockets much to their later surprise and confusion
-One time they held hands and it was really intimate but afterwards they were so embarrassed so they dont talk about it and they pretend it didnt happen
