killing this earth

Gritting her teeth, Maggie finally forced her head up, fighting with everything she had not to release another groan at the extra lance of pain the movement caused in her head. Looking towards the source of the voice, slowly taking in the form of the woman standing half in shadows. “I should’ve shot you instead of cuffing you.”

Lillian Luthor’s smile was sharp, cold amusement filling her eyes. “Such hostility to come from a law enforcement officer.”

“You’re the reason all those people in the bar died.” The haze of whatever chemical they’d used on her was receding more rapidly in the wake of sudden, blood boiling anger. “You killed innocent people.”

“I killed Earth’s unwanted, outsider abominations. Aliens aren’t people.”

Maggie lunged forward, snarl on her lips, only to be jerked back again with the unyielding force of the cuffs around her wrists.

“The only abominations are you and your hate mongering terrorist group. You almost shot them into space. You nearly shot my-” her teeth clicked together to keep the word in.

“Your what? Little black ops girlfriend? I must admit, it would’ve been quite the thorn out of my side if I’d actually managed to send her light years away.”

The words and huff of laughter that left her captor’s mouth only fueled Maggie’s rage, making her jerk forward again and again, until she felt blood beginning to drip down her fingers from her wrists, making the very slightest splashing sound as they hit the floor.

“Careful now, that kind of anger can be put to so much better use.”

“What the fuck are you talking about?”

“You see, Detective, we’ve been keeping an eye on things in the city and you have been quite the nuisance. Almost as much as your girlfriend and her alien pet.”

Maggie shot forward again, uncaring of the sting of metal cutting deeper into her skin.

“Yet, where the agency is a little harder to crack, your precinct is laughably easy to infiltrate, especially when there’s little more than a security guard and a workaholic detective to contend with.” The woman took a couple steps closer to her captive, her smile turning thoughtful. “I know where I went wrong with Agent Danvers. Giving her a choice in the matter. Offering to let her join us rather than forcing her to. I won’t make that mistake again, not with you.”

i REALLY needed to draw something so i drew my favorite junkers quickly👌👌

Peridot is anything but common

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?

Thranduil: Nothing.

Legolas: Dad?

Thranduil: What?

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.

STOP SLEEPING ON THIS !!! HE MISSES EARTH !! HE’S THE ONE WHO TALKS ABOUT GOING HOME, GOES TO THE EARTH STORE !! COINCIDENCE?? I THINK NOT 

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.

- Carl Sagan (died: 20 December 1996)

Just Imagine

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.

Mutsurie headcanons because i cant sleep

-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

Y’know I’ve seen some posts talking about how Earth would, essentially, be space australia.

And I wonder if the Voltron fandom has ever considered the implications of this?

Like we all like to think of all the funny or cute ways Allura and Coran would experience earth but like

what if they arrive and freak out because “THIS PLACE IS CLEARLY DANGEROUS. HOW DO YOU PEOPLE LIVE HERE?!”

And the paladins dont get it at first and then it slowly sinks in that Allura and Coran have experienced two types of planets. Planets where everything is nice and wont hurt you. And planets where the very landscape is trying to kill you.

Earth is an amalgamation of both and they’re having trouble processig it.

So the paladins try and show them all the nice peaceful non-threatening stuff about earth, only for something dangerous to happen.

Lance takes Allura and Coran fishing? Shark jumps out and eats the fish off his line.

They take them to Canada to see the lovely landscapes? FUCKING MOOSES PLOWING THROUGH THE SNOW.

And it just keeps happening and the paladins are at a loss for what to do. Meanwhile allura and coran are slowly developing a bit of respect for humanity for apparantly having flourished on a planet where everything could be trying to kill you.
