last vision

every animorphs book
  • chapter 1: my name is jake. I can't tell you my real name, because I'm the leader of a special group of kids... we're called the Animorphs. Because we morph into animals and fight aliens.
  • chapter 16: 'god, please don't do this,' i begged on my knees. Visser Three had all of my loved ones hanging from his claws in his multi-armed alien morph and was slowly squeezing the life out of them. 'you must either choose them, jake, or the rest of your planet.' i couldn't take it. i started to morph into a cockroach.
  • chapter 23: as i felt my own brain slither down my throat and into my torso to reform into my digestive system, my bones also began to dissolve into dust inside my skin. my eyes shrunk back into my skull and i could see into eternity- i could see my own mind, taken over by the yeerk. i had already taken my last breath as a free creature, now i saw my last vision as a being of this dimension. suddenly, i was gone. and my parents would never even know i had died. was saving the world worth this? i wondered, if anyone on this planet could be forced to prioritize one life over another, what choice would they make? how can any decision be right, or wrong? i closed my mind off, and fell into eternal sleep, my last echoes of thought being of how humanity continued to live on, but not truly alive.
  • chapter 26: 'hey, bro, wanna go to mc d's and grab some fries?' marco asked, riding by on his skateboard. 'yeah, that'd be totally radical!' i answered, whipping out my own razor scooter. as i pulled a nasty kickflip, i felt eyes watching me. turning around, i saw my own dog, and thought of the horrible truth only i knew. we went to the mall to get big macs. it was a good day to not be dead.

Champions #9 - By Mark Waid, Humberto Ramos

It had a rough start, but I’ve grown to like this series more and more.

This, though, this sealed the deal.

The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas

From The Wind’s Twelve Quarters: Short Stories by Ursula Le Guin


With a clamor of bells that set the swallows soaring, the Festival of Summer came to the city Omelas, bright-towered by the sea. The rigging of the boats in harbor sparkled with flags. In the streets between houses with red roofs and painted walls, between old moss-grown gardens and under avenues of trees, past great parks and public buildings, processions moved. Some were decorous: old people in long stiff robes of mauve and grey, grave master workmen, quiet, merry women carrying their babies and chatting as they walked. In other streets the music beat faster, a shimmering of gong and tambourine, and the people went dancing, the procession was a dance. Children dodged in and out, their high calls rising like the swallows’ crossing flights, over the music and the singing. All the processions wound towards the north side of the city, where on the great water-meadow called the Green’ Fields boys and girls, naked in the bright air, with mudstained feet and ankles and long, lithe arms, exercised their restive horses before the race. The horses wore no gear at all but a halter without bit. Their manes were braided with streamers of silver, gold, and green. They flared their nostrils and pranced and boasted to one another; they were vastly excited, the horse being the only animal who has adopted our ceremonies as his own. Far off to the north and west the mountains stood up half encircling Omelas on her bay. The air of morning was so clear that the snow still crowning the Eighteen Peaks burned with white-gold fire across the miles of sunlit air, under the dark blue of the sky. There was just enough wind to make the banners that marked the racecourse snap and flutter now and then. In the silence of the broad green meadows one could hear the music winding through the city streets, farther and nearer and ever approaching, a cheerful faint sweetness of the air that from time to time trembled and gathered together and broke out into the great joyous clanging of the bells.

Hope for a Reylo kiss* in The Last Jedi?

While we were discussing Rian Johnson’s directorial style in depicting on-screen romance, @alikssepia mentioned having hope for a Reylo kiss in The Last Jedi, which got me thinking.

I’ve assumed the probability of any romantic interaction between Rey and Ben in Episode VIII is pretty low (so much story and character development to get through!), but there is one context in which I could see it happening, and the teaser trailer points the way.

(mild spoilerish content for possible location. read it or don’t).


Remember this guy?

“What’s in there?”

“Only what you take with you.”

If Johnson allows himself to be inspired by elements of the original trilogy, then Rey and Ben are very likely to meet in a force vision, much as Luke encountered Vader while training with Yoda on Dagobah.

In the dreamscape of a force vision, ordinary rules are suspended. In Empire, Luke meets the thing he fears most, and discovers that his enemy bears his own face.

What will Rey see when she enters a cave on Ahch-to? If Johnson is inspired by the template provided by Empire, Rey will meet her enemy, but he may not appear in the guise she expects. 

We’re free to speculate (and truly, that’s part of the fun of being here), but we may already know how this encounter affects her:

…wide-eyed, she stumbles from the mouth of the cave into the bright light of Ahch-to’s sun; crashing to her knees, hands splayed hard against the cool gray stone of the island, her breath comes in great, heaving gasps. 

All this speculation is reminding me of a rumor we heard last year about a possible secret filming location at Liss Ard with Adam, Daisy and Mark, at the Irish Sky Garden, an outdoor earth sculpture by James Turrell. 

Imagine this space under the dome of the night sky. The focal point stone at the center of the crater is reminiscent of a casket, bed, or altar. 

Anyhoo…



*An actual kiss would be astonishingly big payoff in a force vision meetup between Rey and Ren. Just about anything in a similar vein would ‘count’; a burning gaze, a tentative touch, leaning into each other, etc.

I think one could also make the argument that having Rey and Ben meet and interact positively in a force vision isn’t proof of a future canon relationship between these two characters, because Ben wasn’t really there; in the same way that Vader was not really on Dagobah with Luke. 

Meh. If the two characters meet in a force vision and Rey encounters Ben in a way that defies her expectation, it’s a sign that the real deal is in the offing.

and the Star Wars Connection podcast about this possible secret location.

Destiel + established relationship + blind!dean

For @prayforjensen. Happy birthday, Lee! I love you!!

Dean’s vision begins fading somewhere around the sixth date. He tells Cas that he should get out now but Cas doesn’t budge. 

He started losing his heart somewhere around the third.

Dean gets glasses. He hates them at first, always laughs and says he looks like a nerd. Cas adores them, loves to take them from Dean to clean the lenses before settling them back on his nose. He likes the way they go crooked on Dean’s face when he falls asleep on the couch, loves the sound they make when Dean sets them on the bedside table right before he turns out the light and kisses Cas goodnight.

The prescriptions steadily get stronger, buying them a little more time. In that time, they whisper their first “I love you”s, Cas moves in, and they travel. Cas takes Dean anywhere and everywhere, from the Atlantic Coast to the Pacific. They stop at the Grand Canyon, drive down to Mexico for a day. 

When it seems that Dean’s vision will last the fall, they decide to go to Texas for Austin City Limits. They take a few days before Thanksgiving to drive up the east coast and visit some orchards, see a few lighthouses. They spend a night in Martha’s Vineyard and Dean complains about feeling like some uppity Hartford housewife but he holds Cas close that night as they sit on the beach and watch the stars. 

It’s when they’re in Kansas for the holidays that Dean wakes up, puts on his glasses, and sees so difference. He shakes Cas away, starting to panic.

“Everything is still blurry, C-Cas. Why-why- it shouldn’t” His breathing becomes ragged and there are tears streaking down his face and Cas cups his chin, heart breaking in his chest as he tries to calm Dean down. 

“It’s okay, baby. It’s going to be okay. Just breathe.”

Imagine Stiles goes blind.

It takes a while for the pack to adjust but they do, making sure to say things out loud instead of nodding or shaking their head, and making sure that Isaac stops Stiles before he walks into something that could hurt him instead of sitting back and watching on for a few laughs. They still occasionally slip up and ask him “Did you see that?” to which his only reply is to blankly stare at them.

A lot of the time he makes the best of it, often teasing Derek about how he can just imagine him naked all day every day and he doesn’t have reality to break that illusion.

Stiles adjusts to his new way of living, learning how to memorise things in his house and walk about them and when he needs to read something, Derek reads it to him (stories, case files, the latest supernatural research, everything).

On their wedding day, Derek forgets his tie and has to run to Scott’s to get it (Because Scott was in charge of the suits and Cora was too busy trying to get into her dress to make the run for him). When he gets there, Scott tells him to wait in the door while he runs to get the tie. Stiles hears him and shouts hello. Derek tells him “It’s bad luck to see the groom before the wedding.” To which Stiles teasingly replies, “Then it’s a good thing I can’t see you.”

Originally posted by teenwolf--imagines

During their wedding, Stiles and Derek wrote their own vows about how they don’t need to look at one another in the morning to know that they’re waking up to each other, they don’t have to see one another to know that the other is there for them and they don’t have to share loving gazes at the alter to know they are standing before the man they love.

Originally posted by thebloodofanevilangel

When Stiles and Derek adopt a baby, Stiles is terrified and heart broken. He’s scared that because he can’t see he won’t be able to care for the baby but he does his best. And he’s heartbroken because he never gets to see their child. Except for one day, when Scott heals his sight just long enough that he can see the smiling face of their baby and then look up at Derek’s loving gaze. The vision doesn’t last long, but that’s perfectly okay because now he can hold onto that image forever.

The Maximoff Twins were never supposed to be born. Their mother, Wanda, was the head astronaut leading an experimental mission to start a colony on Mars. The settlement, Genosha, was only supposed to be running for four years. Unaware of her own pregnancy, Wanda finds out that she is pregnant two months after the shuttle already began its nine month trip to Mars. She makes the hard decision to continue with the journey, gestating the twins in zero gravity- a feat which was never attempted beforehand. 

Shortly after the team lands on Mars, Wanda goes into labor. Thomas and William are born, the first children ever born in space. But Wanda isn’t so lucky, dying shortly after the babies are stabilized. 

Sixteen years pass. The twins are one of Nasa’s biggest secrets. No one knows that they exist; their mother’s death was attributed to a suit malfunctioning due to a pressure issue. While Tommy is accustomed to Mars, Billy wants to set foot on Earth. Billy breaks into his mother’s possessions that were locked in storage, finding a photo of her and a man. Billy thinks they finally found their mother. 

With assistance from Kate, the woman who had helped raise Billy and Tommy, Billy goes through an experimental surgery that will help him live successfully on Earth. If all goes well, Tommy should be able to join him only months later. 

But Tommy and Kate don’t know that Billy had been speaking to an Earth boy, a young man named Teddy. Teddy had been in the foster care system since he was only four years old, and its made him guarded and stand offish. Billy is the first person he thinks he can truly be himself around. 

Billy, aghast on Earth when he learns that he won’t have the freedom he craved, runs away from the NASA station he had been staying at. He finds Teddy and they begin a trip looking for the one person who can give Billy the information he desperately wants about his mother. 

Things start to go wrong, however, when they find out that Billy’s body can’t handle the Earth’s gravity, and that his organs are beginning to fail. 

Billy learns that just because you may want something, it may not want you back, and maybe that the truth isn’t worth the price

_________________________________________________

Your eyes were betraying you. 

No. 

Your brain was betraying you.

That was it, you had tipped over the edge of madness. You were definitely and irreversibly crazy. After months of grief and pain, it finally happened.

Because he couldn’t be there. You had wished for months and months for him to be by your side, and now, your own mind was playing trick on you. Because he could. Not. Be. There. No.

And yet…Yet why weren’t you the only one reacting to his sudden appearance ?

 Your children gasped, and Alfred made a loud sound of surprise. 

And why were Diana and Clark by his side ? If it was an hallucination, why would you see them with him ? Why would you hallucinate them too ? Especially since you still hadn’t forgive them for what they did…

Your oldest is the first one to launch himself towards him, and your boy’s body make a sound as he hits his father’s. A very real sound…You’re confused. 

Ho…how ? Bruce’s arms wrap around his son and…he does seem real.

For a second, you think maybe it’s a dream. One of many you had ever since Bruce’s death. Because this is all too good to be true. 

Because this is impossible. Because…Because you saw him die.

The memory of this awful moments comes flooding to you.

************

You saw him died. Or rather, you saw him being swarmed by monsters on Apokolips. It was the same thing really. There was absolutely no chance he survived that day. Even less chances he survived that long. The many months.

It was all so blurry, your own mind shielding you from the trauma of loosing the love of your life. You couldn’t remember everything in details.  

Him having to stay behind to disarm a weapon that would wipe all life in the universe. Being the only one who could do it. 

Him begging Diana and Clark to drag you to safety, because he knew you would never leave him willingly…And, trying as best they could to ignore your screams of despair, they did get you safe and sound. 

It was the least they could do. They owed him that much. After all, he was sacrificing himself for the greater good. And though it cost them a lot to leave their best friends behind…They knew they weren’t any other solutions. 

If even the Batman, even the man that had a plan for everything, from A to Z, said : “this is our only chance”…then it was the only way. 

And as the portal to Apokolips was closing, and you were safe back in the Watchtower, the last vision you had of him was his smile to you. Him mouthing “I will always love you”, before a wave of creatures buried him under them. 

Your supplication to open the portal again broke all your friends from the League’s heart. And when J’onn told you it wasn’t possible, that Bruce made sure the entire thing would fry when the mission was done (for safety, so that they wouldn’t bring any of the nightmarish beasts that lived on Apokolips back with them), you lost your cool. Your lost all control. 

Your screams of pain still haunt them at night. 

They had to give you a sedative. And against their will, called your sons to pick you up. They had to tell them…And it’s with a broken and heavy heart that they brought you back home. Took care of you as you always did for them. Because you needed them. You needed their love. Their support. And they needed you. 

One of the central pillar that was holding this family was no more. 

Their father was dead. 

The love of your life was dead. 

Bruce…Was never coming back.

“When you accepted Keith as the new leader of Voltron, it proved that you value a strong team over your own need for glory. Just like my father.”

“I won’t let him down.”

“Go.”


Does anyone else want to cry at the fact that boy Allura first woke up to, first saw, after her father being her last vision before falling asleep, ended up being the person she, in a sense, passes his legacy to?

After Natasha successfully slammed you to the mat for the sixteenth time in a row you finally cried ‘uncle’ and ended the hour long workout/torture session.  You’d come here to kickbox and beat the holy hell out of a bag but a certain spider had other ideas.

“I deserve this,” you groaned.  Your chest heaved as your lungs strained for breath. The amorphous blob of a sweatshirt you insisted on wearing while exercising was soaked with sweat and made you feel as if you were slowly cooking in one of Hell’s saunas.  “This is why I hate exercising.”  Nat extended a hand to pull you to your feet but you shook your head dramatically on the mat.  “No, just leave me here to die.  I quit.  You go out and fight the good fight.  I’ll save my skills and start a nice, quiet dart league or somethin’.”  Natasha rolled her eyes and kicked your leg. “No, seriously.  I retire my knives to you.  My guns, throwing stars, all of it.  Take care of Ferd for me.  Tell him his mummy loved him,” you wailed with a huge fake sob.
