/ 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.
Thoughts on petplay? If positive, have you a favourite type of pet and why?
You know, I haven’t done much petplay! What I have done, though, was very fun. I’ve lucked into having a few partners who like being dogs (some identifying more strongly than others). I also recorded this induction back in the day turning the listener into a cat. The sound’s a bit rubbish, but it’s probably the most effective thing I’ve recorded for me personally. I’ll listen sometimes when I’m stressed.
As a bottom? I LOVE being a cat! Love it, love it, love it. Would do it all day and twice on Christmas.
I'm personally glad the fashion world shooed E out. She never worked for what she wanted. She built her name off of Louis. She missed classes and almost didn't graduate because she was too busy digging her nose into this crap for money. And now that no one cares about her name or her fashion, she goes back to bearding and is even worse the second time around. This isn't even building up her name, it's pure embarrassment that she went back to this and suddenly her fashion blog never happened.
Must suck when your only talent is pretend to dare guys, and when the guy is making you wear horrible outfits and bee papped looking weird lol karma
Here is a small and weird and random story about me and Daredevil, because I don’t have another place to put it and I wanted to write it out.
I’m not blind. Or a Catholic vigilante lawyer. But when I think about how to describe the gigantic tangled-ball-of-yarn that is my brain and being, I usually think about watching Daredevil for the first time and seeing something weirdly familiar in Matt Murdock. I usually remember wincing in sympathy when he was overwhelmed, when textures and sounds and the whole world was amplified and overwhelming and too much all at once. I remember watching this stupid fictional character hang on by a thread that no one can see because he’s deep-down tired and at his wit’s end but he seems like he’s still functioning okay and being way, way too surprised about that, because it’s hard to explain to people that you can get up in the morning and throw yourself into things until you’re beat and exhausted and still be very much not-okay. (I hesitate to use the term depressed but hey, maybe I will, because maybe it’s pretty accurate.) I don’t see a lot of talking about this, usually: the fact that sometimes it’s not hiding in bed, or being paralyzed by your brain, it’s driving yourself forward and forward and forward without thinking about yourself because the constant moving feels like it should fix something that it’s really just hurting.
All of that to say: extremely-screwed-up-sensory-wise somewhat high-functioning non-stop definitely-not-okay aimee desperately trying to move a million miles an hour and keep some kind of control over something thought that was pretty tragic and pretty cool and adopted Matt Murdock immediately.
This very same Aimee also watched that person weirdly similar to her take little steps, and keep getting up and doing good anyway, and that was a revolutionary concept, because now it wasn’t just “oh look somebody i can relate to”, it was “oh look, somebody i can relate to who struggles, who fights, but who still keeps to his morals, who still keeps going, who’s allowed to screw up and screw up royally.” I’m not the exact same person as Matt Murdock by any means, even aside from superpowers. The parallels between his issues and mine aren’t exactly the same. But they’re similar enough to have given me something to think about this past year since watching it, when I went to martial arts again and again and again and again and lined up for sparring matches in my fancy gloves again and again and again and had a panic attack every time before I could even get a punch in. The other day, I made it through a whole fight without freaking or losing my mind. I can’t put that entirely on the fictional over-dramatic superhero Daredevil, but I can say that I thought a lot about the also-overwhelmed person who kept going anyway, and it got me through learning how to keep going.
Earlier I was thinking about Zero and X getting engaged, and even though I don’t think they’re the type of people who’d ever do that, the thought was hilarious because I imagine Zero and X having this very touching heart-to-heart moment, and then they try putting the ring on and it doesn’t fit because of their big bulky Reploid hands
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..
I really liked your jealousy headcanons for Ayato and Hide! Can you also do some for Uta, Touka, and another character of your own choice? I really like your blog, you are a very good writer~
omg im???? sscreaming aaaaaA this is literally so nice of u i rlly appreciate this it made my dAY i hope u find $100 on the ground or whatever ur currency is and yes of course lovely ;;v;;
Jealousy level falls between the middle; he isn’t the type to coddle you and like won’t let you go anywhere or talk to anyone, but also isn’t the type to just let any sort of person just lay a finger on you.
Whoever is making Uta jealous, beware; his smile, tone of voice, and the way he talks will definitely send chills down the others’ back, hoping that he will scare them off. For good.
Uta works on masks all night long just to vent off that angry jealous feeling.
Similar to Ayato, she has a hard time covering up the fact that she’s jealous. A deep scowl can be seen on her face when she’s jealous.
Touka will act like she doesn’t care like the tsundere like she is, but deep down, she does care.
If you find out she was jealous, most of the time you have to coax her to talk to you about it and then gently reassure her that you wouldn’t ever leave her like her brother.
Naki (bc he’s literally so precious i lovE HIM HGSFJKDFJ)
cries He’ll spill the beans about how he didn’t like the person you were talking to because Naki felt as if they were getting a little too friendly with you. But in reality, he just really doesn’t want to lose you he just doesn’t handle things very professionally.
You really, really have to encourage him that the two of you were good friends and that everything was going to be okay.
Naki’s face is very easily read and you can tell when he’s jealous because of the way he acts; pouting, purposely avoiding your gaze, acting like a 3 year old, etc.
