okay listen to me she /adores/ sunflowers theyre so vibrant and pretty and strong
like she loves all flowers but sunflowers are special to her okay
when she was younger she would never pluck them out of the ground because that would be killing them and she wants them to live forever
when kat finds out she really buys a bunch of sunflowers (and other plants) and put them on different window sills in their apartment
and there is one on her desk because kat edison is quite possibly the biggest sap of all time im euirheaiuh
also i firmly believe that when they move in together kat and adena turn one corner of their room into a nook, somewhere to relax on
like im talking beanbags galore. theyre two year olds at heart okay
and im talking books because theyre nerds and its by a window too so sunlight is streaming thru all the time and kat’ll return home from work to find adena already curled up there reading something with a soft smile and kats heart does that thing where it melts and ohgod i hate myself
adena loves her family and listen. listen shes muslim so i know for a fact that her family is big because we dont just consider our family to be blood relations we take in our entire community to the point where other people we know just become ‘aunts’ ‘uncles’ etc. like eiruheauihraui adena loves them all.
also im tired of the trope where muslims apparently have broken family lives like shut up
kat is really good at baking!
adena never really thought about it too much but she sometimes helps kat bake
they design the apartment together! both have similar tastes but with their own flair and take on it so it works really well
their home is really just vibrant and full of life, with both light and dark colors and it flows so well and its so homey and i love it
they really just share their closet space but also wear each others clothes sometimes because they might not have the same exact size but some things work
like im talking adena shows up to work in one of kats strapless dresses but its paired with leggings and a jacket
likewise kat wears one of adenas shirts and a hat to work looking amazing
adenas favorite colour is blue because it reminds her of the ocean,sea, and also the stars and open sky and god there are so many mysteries in the world so many things existing and she firmly believes that Allah made it for a reason and loves all of it, loves the idea of everything existing for a reason, loves life so much
while kat might not necessarily convert to Islam she makes an effort to understand it because its important to adena and they have a lot of talks about it
see because thats the thing the two of them can have such serious mature talks where they understand each other or at least try to but can also be such goofballs and its such a healthy relationship
erhea i have to go but i really love these two so much i would die for them
/ i apologise in advance im gonna type this Properly some time when im not so tired. but there’s something about keith re: how he perceives others i just can’t stop thinking about it so i’m gonna drop it all here before sleeping:
The thing is, Keith likes to deal with two things predominantly: the present and the facts. He’s a creature of the now and the moment, he doesn’t linger in the past or indulge the future that much. focusing on the task at hand, or what’s going on is what counts. I could write an essay on keith + conditionals and the future itself but that’s another topic entirely. So anyway back to the topic here: eliminating the chances of there being a threat in a person is important, as we see him do with the Arusian (he could be dangerous) (im not taking any chances!).
BUT here’s the thing. Keith doesn’t really actively make a judgement on people, he lets their actions do the talking to determine who they are. Like i said in my second lubos meta about keith + not judging Lubos because it’s not his place to but he kNOWS from the behaviour of Lubos enough to declare he’s NO KING and is resolved to bring him back to the Olkari so he can face his mistakes and they get the chance to make their own choices.
The thing is, several times in canon we see that once keith has evaluated the actions of a person/people, he doesn’t really think to re-question it UNLESS he’s presented with information that conflicts with it - like with the revelation of Ulaz and there being galra that aren’t working with zarkon. That makes Keith question are all Galra are truly bad? and he makes it abundantly clear that now he has seen Galra fighting against the Empire it changes things (It means something to me. It means some of them are actually willing to help. And we could use all the help we can get! It just seems crazy to lump everyone together.)
And ofc the weblum Galra affirms this: We’re Paladins of Voltron. We can’t just leave people to dieeven if they are Galra.
Keith is not really ever shown to JUDGE people based on his own personal feelings. Jumping back a moment, whilst admitting he is wary in S2E3 “Shiro, are you sure you can trust this? I mean, after all the Galra have done to you. They - They took your arm.” (we need to talk about Keith re: shiro bc that is important and it’s where inconsistencies can creep in for many reasons) and “You know I trust you, Shiro, but this doesn’t feel right.”
- he’s not making judgements on Ulaz or bringing Ulaz himself directly into it. He’s assessing the situation objectively and expressing his concerns because from what they know and have seen the Galra have done nothing positive for the team or even the Universe. But he trusts Shiro. Once it’s clear they’re being tracked he accuses Ulaz “If Zarkon knows we’re here, it’s because you ratted us out.” because of Ulaz’s actions which have led him to believe that’s the truth in a pressing situation where people and Voltron are now in DANGER.
BUT. BUT once Ulaz’s actions prove he’s on their side and it’s clear, Keith seldom can keep quiet about it (Sorry we doubted Ulaz, Shiro. He saved all our lives). honestly he actively defends Ulaz’s name and his intentions to Allura when before he had been questioning Ulaz because he now has the facts at his disposal (Yeah! Maybe Zarkon found out about this place on his own. He’s probably been searching for the Blade of Marmora.)
And god is he passionate about making sure people understand that Ulaz sacrificed himself FOR THEM. i’ve written somewhere before about this point. The way he speaks about Ulaz and Thace really is something to touch upon for another time in depth. In fact, the meeting of Ulaz, Thace and the Mystery Galra is so interesting and important to understanding how Keith perceives people tbh.
he’s actually very open minded despite being so logical and keen to eliminate the risks. Like okay we’re gonna hop forwards to the galra in the weblum for a sec. Keith KNOWS what that symbol means it’s the symbol of the empire. So he takes a precaution to eliminate the risk. Once the galra helps him and their ACTIONS are clear, Keith lets them keep their weapon. they have a job to get on with and that’s the priority here. but the thing is he even goes as far to shield them from the blasts multiple times.
and then - he even tURNS HIS BACK to the armed galra to collect the materials up??? i m just. KEITH.
It’s not trust exactly. And it’s not carelessnesseither because Keith has reasons to believe that he is able to do this. he has rationally decided this Galra is not the threat at the moment. “So you’re just like the rest of them” demonstrates that Keith gave them the benefit of the doubt, despite having the opportunity to justlump everyone together, based on how they had behaved and interacted with him -regardless of the symbol on the pod and the fact they’re Galra.
Now their actions have proven to Keith something different.
In general, he believes no matter who you were your actions determine who you are NOW and he’s made the choice based on the actions of that galra to believe that as they have a common enemy working together is going to be feasible.
Even when he’s wary of the Arusian on Arus once allura tells him to back off he begrudgingly does because he does understand what it means to be a paladin, i’ve said this in a few metas before he really does think like a paladin of voltron and he is so devoted to this cause and to the mission and the greater good. it’s juST.
Anyway with the Arusians. they get to the village and he lets one of them hug him, he could just easily shake them off or make a scene, i mean he’s walking away from the scene at the time. He’s clearly uncomfortable and openly admits to not really being the kind of person to hug strangers. But he kind of pats the arusian anyway and lets them be, and even is seen talking to the same on at the party later???? And then his face when he sees the Arusian village being burnt down. He’s such a good honestly like. He REALLY IS.
but that whole scene in particular with the Galra in the weblum SHOWS exactly what I fear and is potentially a weakness of Keith - which is that actually Keith can be so incredibly open and in quite an alarming way - which i don’t even think Keith himself is aware of. because he doesn't necessarily judge people he just leaves their actions to do the talking and then makes a decision on how to react.
he is shown to make sure that people face the repercussions of their mistakes and bad choices because if you commit yourself to a choice you see it through no matter what or else that choice was nothing and your actions have spoken.
furthermore, Keith is not afraid to call people up on things no matter who they are or their stature (lubos/allura). He’salso insistent that people get credit and respect when they’re due no matter who they are or their stature (ulaz/thace/hunk).
TLDR: Because of all this, because of how he operates it is very possible keith can and could be betrayed.
sexual tension and love and all is good but olicity needs a lot more to reconcile. what are your thoughts on that?
Oh you’re right, anon.
Felicity told Oliver when she left him that he tended to revert back to his island way of going alone when things got rough. Oliver had been full of guilt and Felicity had been full of pain, and though they’d talked, they hadn’t talked.
They haven’t had catharsis. They need that. We need that.
I need them to fight the fuck out. (I’m going to go One Tree Hill on your ass, so bear with me). It would be like this (in my head):
Oliver would be
And Felicity would take a deep breath and crack a joke and change the topic. For once though, Oliver would persist. Because they need to hash it out. The conundrum they’re in is not healthy for either of them, swinging between a rock and a hard place.
Oliver would push and push and then Felicity would snap. Oh, she’d snap gloriously, laying it all out on the line completely, bare to him
They would hash it all out, completely and yell or whisper or just plain shake each other but they would LAY IT OUT
(I swear i got chills when i saw this scene for the first time)
That was the crux of the matter. Oliver didn’t share with Felicity. Oliver didn’t let her in. And he’s trying. Trying harder.
He tells her that. He tells her.
It’s raw. It’s unrefined. It’s real.
But she isn’t ready for the risk, not again, not so soon. Her heart is bruised and she isn’t ready.
But he can wait. He will wait for eternity if there was even a glimmer of possibility for them because for him, she is it.
And then, after that whole cathartic talk, would they be on the road back to each other. That doesn’t mean they’ll reconcile suddenly. It’s a long road, and it should take its own sweet time when the destination is forever.
But this is how they get on the path.
Because after all,
I don’t care if they take thirty minutes or five. I don’t care if they yell or whisper, scream or murmur. I don’t care if they cry like lovers or joke like friends.
I just need them to talk the fuck out of this conversation.
You love the head canon where misaki has secret artistic talents so what if other HOMRA members had secret artistic talents what would they be?
would probably be the one with the biggest variety of artistic
talents, most of which aren’t very secret because everyone knows
about all his hobbies. I think his best talents would probably lie
with film and music, since we know he has his guitar and he’s always
filming with the camera. I can imagine Totsuka as not being great at
something like painting but even then he’s got a lot of enthusiasm
and will just happily toss paint at a canvas and have a great time.
Somehow I can imagine Kusanagi being good at painting or even
something like calligraphy, just imagine him doing fancy signage for
outside the bar and everyone assumes he just hired someone (oh, wait,
even more amusing; imagine Mikoto with the amazing calligraphy
talents. And now imagine Munakata finding out about it. You’re
welcome). Kamamoto, say he’s got a secret talent involving sewing and
makes all his own clothes because if you had a drastic weight loss
for a few months every year you’d probably get tired of buying new
clothes all the time too. Also imagine he’s skilled enough that some
of his clothes can be worn in both summer and winter, like he just
has to add a couple stitches in a certain spot to take the clothes in
and then remove the stitches to take the garment back out and he can
wear it in the winter. Anna I could see having sewing talents too,
imagine her making her own little stuffed animals and such – I like
the idea of Kamamoto or Totsuka teaching her but I also kinda like
imagining that she already knew how, like because she’s not like
other kids she was lonely a lot and so when Honami took Anna in she
decided to teach her how to sew stuffed animals as a kind of therapy,
like at least Anna can have her cute stuffed things to keep her
company and make her feel a little less alone.
Xiumin: Groans. He’s not the type to moan but he’d groan a lot during sex, especially when he’s about to climax. He seems like the type to curse during sex, he’d let out a “fuck” and “you’re so tight” occasionally, but other than that he’s quite.
Suho: Light moans and heavy breathing some dirty talking. Suho wouldn’t be a loud moaner, he’d moan lightly when he’s about to finish off, he’s a sucker for dirty talking, but not a lot.
Yixing: Heavy breathing and occasional groaning. He doesn’t moan, he’d groan loudly when he’s about to cum. He would bite his lips a lot and smirk a lot oh god.
Baekhyun: Moaning and groaning. He doesn’t give a shit, so when he’s enjoying himself he’d make it clear by moaning and groaning. Somehow i see him being a giggler when he finishes.
Chen: Dirty talking, lots and lots of dirty talking. He’s the type that would whisper dirty things in your ear during sex, with occasional grunts when he’s about to cum.
Chanyeol: A lot of heavy breathing and grunting. Chanyeol doesn’t seem the type to moan, but his breath would quicken and become shallower during sex, with occasional grunting, he’s the type to grit his teeth and grunt when he’s about to climax.
D.O.: Light moaning and grunting. He’s usually a very quiet calm and a very composed person, he is also the same in bed, except he’s not very composed, he’d moan lightly and quietly here and there and would also grunt when he’s about to climax.
Kai: Moaning and some dirty talking. He seems like the type to moan, he’d let out breathless moans letting you know that he is enjoying himself, he’s also dirty talk a little at the beginning, i can see him smirking a lot too.
Sehun: Heavy breathing and some dirty talking. Sehun holds in his moans and rather breathes heavily, and lets out a bunch of huffs and puffs here and there, he’s the type to enjoy listening to his partner’s moans, he also seems like the type to enjoy dirty talking like “do you like that?” etc..
