About Lance and Lotor ...

In my mind, Lotor is a cunning, more subtle villain than Zarkon — he’s patient, he’s methodical, and he’s not going to go galavanting all over the galaxy to hunt Team Voltron down.

He’s going to exploit one particular link in the chain, the one he sees as the weakest — Lance. He’ll somehow find a way to communicate with him, in secret; he’ll play up his half-Altean heritage, ply Lance with compliments, give him much needed advice and even feed him information about Galra attacks (minor ones) wherein Team Voltron succeeds in saving the day.

Lotor doesn’t mind sacrificing a few Galra for the sake of a bigger picture — the capture and defeat of Voltron. And when he starts to suggest that he and Lance meet directly, and when Lance goes, alone, Lotor doesn’t capture him. He cements the trust between them by giving him the location of a Galra base, waxing poetic about some sob story involving his tortured past, and then letting Lance leave without tracking him at all.

Then Lance finally tells the team everything, and naturally they all, especially Allura and Keith, lose their minds. Allura knows Lotor is evil. Keith isn’t jealous because that is not important at all here — he is terrified and angry that Lance would be taking this risk, that Lance would meet this guy alone. Unfortunately for Keith, though, he doesn’t express it in the best way.

And Lance, who has been feeling less and less confident as the days go by (because abusive manipulative a-holes know exactly how to compliment someone while also making them feel small, isolating them from friends and family), fights back, furious that they refuse to trust Lotor — because in his mind that means they don’t trust him.

They strike the base, they win the day, and Lance leaves. He leaves voluntarily, and goes to Lotor.

And that’s when it falls apart for our heroes. Because now Lotor has the Blue Lion and Lance. He has a bargaining chip, a hostage, and the others can’t form Voltron. Lotor knows too much about the other Paladins, he knows his enemy better than Zarkon ever did, thanks to Lance. And then he really starts to strike fear into the universe.

And Lance, our poor Blue Paladin, realizes that his friends were right all along, and Lotor has no reason to keep being nice — other than to mess with Lance’s head.

And I’m so tempted to write this all out as fic, but holy crap, realistically, Lance getting better from this would be such an agonizing trial. I do not believe in romanticizing Lotor because I’ve framed him as a villain in this concept; he would be evil without redemption here, and so it would be entirely up to Lance to stand strong on his own and hold himself together.

Everyone has their own headcanons, and this one is mine — but it’s pretty damn dark and wow, Lance, honey, I didn’t know I could be this mean to you.

Ideally the team saves Lance, he takes a long, long while to regain his footing, his self-worth, his inner strength, and when they finally take the battle to Lotor, Lance is the one to thoroughly and unequivocally kick his ass.

And then he and Keith sort out their issues, figuring out that things are going to be rough between them as Lance still needs to recover and Keith has his own baggage that he brings to the table, but it’s the sort of rough they’re willing to work through together.

The end?

The Right Thing To Do (Cassian x Reader) [Part Two]

Part One

After making Han pay her tab, Y/N followed the two men out of Maz Kanata’s bar and back to her ship, the Alpha Dawn, Captain Andor following behind her while Han returned to Chewie and the Falcon. They climbed aboard her ship silently, Cassian taking the rarely used co-pilot’s seat and punching in the coordinates for the rebel base.

“Yavin 4, huh?” Y/N asked, staring over the captain’s shoulder. Cassian whipped around to glare at her, and Y/N shrugged her shoulder.

“The location of our base is highly confidential, that was the whole point of me traveling with you.” Cassian replied, and Y/N threw her hands up in mock surrender.

“I have a right to know where my ship is going, Andor.” Y/N snapped, falling into the her seat and prepping the ship for takeoff. “Besides, your secret is safe with me.”

“That remains to be seen.” Cassian replied, and Y/N rolled her eyes as she guided the ship off of the ground and off of the planet.

“Why do you dislike me so much?”

“You fight for nothing but money.” Cassian replied, pausing momentarily to enter the last calculations for the jump to lightspeed. “You have no honor, no respect.”

“Oh, I have plenty of respect.” Y/N replied, taking the calculations Cassian had provided and initiating the jump. Everything around the ship blurred and Y/N felt the momentary uneasiness that accompanied the jump to hyperspace. “Respect for money just happens to be the most important. And you don’t know the first thing about me, Andor, other than the fact that you need me to make this mission a success. We should be in the Yavin system in five hours.”

With that, Y/N jumped up from her seat, slamming the button to open the cockpit door with more force than was necessary. She made her way back into the small kitchen area her ship held, slamming open a cabinet and pulling out a pack of crackers and taking it to the small table in the center of the room. Something about the rebel captain got under her skin. His comment was nothing she hadn’t heard multiple times over the years, but somehow they were affecting her more than they normally would. She was still brooding over the captain’s words when the object of her thoughts appeared, looking slightly sheepish as he approached her.

“I am sorry, Y/N. What I said was uncalled for. It is no business of mine how you live your life.”

Y/N stared at him for a long moment before sighing and tossing him the half-empty package of snacks as a means of accepting his apology. A small smile appeared on Cassian’s face as he took the seat across from her, picking out one of the crackers out of the package.

“So what exactly did Han tell you about me?” Y/N asked.

“That you were a skilled pilot, one of the best smugglers in the Outer Rim, and that you had no love for the Empire.”

“He could have said that about any number of ne’r-do-wells we know. Most people who break the law for a living have no love for Imperials”

“True.” Cassian replied with a nod. “He also told us about the job you pulled at Kyrell 8.”

“That…” Y/N began, before leaning back with a smirk. “That whole thing was pretty brilliant on my part, actually.”

“And reckless.”

“But also fairly impressive. I can see why you were so desperate to hire me.”

“Believe me, if we had any other choice we wouldn’t have.”

“Why did you hire me?” Y/N asked. “Surely you’ve got plenty of skilled pilots in the Alliance.” Y/N watched as Cassian’s features grew dark, his eyes cold.

“We did.” He finally replied after a moment, crossing his arms across his chest. “We sustained heavy losses at Scarif, then again during the Battle of Yavin. We lost most of our fighter pilots during the defeat of the Death Star. The number of Imperial troops defecting to the Alliance has grown steadily, but it takes certain skills and months - even years - of training to successfully pilot an X-Wing. Any spare pilots we have have been transferred to the defense of the Alliance. We simply can’t spare anyone.”

“So, I’m expendable.” Y/N replied. “By sending me, you don’t risk any of your own officers. And if I fail, you don’t even have to pay me because I’ll be stardust.”

“Yes.” Cassian replied simply, and Y/N got the feeling that this was a man who was blunt to a fault. She just wasn’t sure if she liked it or not.

Headcanon: William Afton doesn’t necessarily like purple, but he decided it was his trademark at some point and he doesn’t want anyone else to wear it. Like, there’s stores he won’t shop, because the uniforms are purple. He doesn’t even like it on his own children and I think you can see where I’m going with this.

Making my way downtown, walking fast, FUCK YOU DAD and I’m homebound…

Here’s my design for Shiro in the Voltron paranormal investigation team AU! Unlike the rest of the team, he can actually see ghosts. (He doesn’t tell Lance that some of them make faces at him while they’re filming episodes of their reality show bwahahahahaha)

You can find paranormal investigators Keith and Pidge here and here!

Hunk and Lance are here!

Allura and Coran are here!

You seem in surprisingly good spirits, considering this loss. Loss, you say? The rebels may have protected the location of their base for now, but in doing so, they have narrowed my search. Before today, they could have been hiding in any of a thousand systems. But now… Now I know they are almost certainly on one of the 94 planets surveyed by my infiltrators.

Double Agent Vader fic: Rocks and Water

Finally a new DAV fic! Sorry for the long wait, everyone. (If you want to read the whole series, the best place to do so is on AO3.)

This one begins very shortly after Trophies, but covers a span of several months during Anakin’s wild bantha chase for the location of the Rebel base between ANH and ESB. It will be a two-parter, as well: the next part will be from Leia’s point of view.

In part one you get: Anakin building a lightsaber and definitely not having any conflicted thoughts about Obi-Wan Kenobi, or any parental feelings about Leia. Nope. None at all. Also we get a glimpse of the secret network of free droids within the Imperial ranks. And there’s a lot of Tatooine folk magic. (If Master Obi-Wan could see this, he’d be very grumpy indeed.)

Title is taken from Deb Talan’s song of the same name, which is basically the Anakin and Leia theme song for this ‘verse.

Warnings for: some body horror (mainly because Anakin has a morbid sense of humor), implied abuse, medical situations, burning, and…casual talk about murder?

Part 1: The Lightsaber

His new left hand was nearly identical to the old one. Anakin smiled to himself without any real humor as he tested the fingers. He wondered darkly if his Master had a store of such things somewhere, just waiting. He’d certainly been ready enough with the life support suit, all those years ago.

Interesting notes: While no longer canon (as of April 25, 2014) it still provides a useful diagram of the rebel base in 0 BBY.  It includes the locations of the hangars and the medallion ceremony and mess hall and barracks/sleep quarters and the main briefing rooms.

The Rogue One characters spend some time here, where Cassian and the other Rebels are operating out of when the movie starts, and it will be used through the time of the destruction of the Death Star.  If you want to have a better idea of what’s available there or the layout for ficcing purposes, this may help!

Gif makers

Anyone having issues lately (seems to have started over the past week) with some of your old gifs not moving anymore? I’ve been through my whole gif tag, and some have just randomly become still. Re-uploading seems to fix but a) it’s a pain in the arse and b) all the reblogs will have stopped moving too. The weird thing is it seems to be location/server based? For example a set that has a frozen gif for me doesn’t for Riss in America.

I’ve reported it for what it’s worth - which is probably not a great deal because I’ll probably just get some lame cookie-cutter response pulled out of someone’s ass - but I’m just curious as to how many people it’s affecting.

Rebel Barber (CassianxReader) Part 2

A/N:Happy New Years everyone!! Let’s usher in the new year with the second part. Thanks for all the support everyone. I love you all. 

Warning: Illness, needles

Part 1

The hair of pilots and engineers covers the ground of the medbay. Your thumb and ring finger ache from cutting so much hair in such a short period of time. M78 sits in the corner of the room with his visual receptors pointed towards the wall. He could only stand about two haircuts worth of hair on the ground before it became a problem.

A large mission is leaving the base tomorrow. A massive amount of rebels are being sent to a possible location for a new base. It was a last minute decision that resulted in chaos across the entire base. It was going to be a dangerous mission and no one wanted to be killed because their hair was too long. So they all came to you. Everyone who put off getting a haircut for months now rushed to your door to get it done. The last person you saw said the line was halfway down the hallway towards the cafeteria.

On this day in music history: January 23, 1977 - “Animals”, the tenth studio album by Pink Floyd is released. Produced by Pink Floyd, it is recorded at Brittania Row Studios in London from April - December 1976. Following the success of their previous album “Wish You Were Here” and tour, Pink Floyd return to the studio in the Spring of 1976. The band record in their newly acquired recording facility Brittania Row Studios, a group of old church halls converted into a studio and named after the street in Islington, London where it is located. Based in part on George Orwell’s “Animal Farm”, “Animals” is a concept album making pointed commentary on Britain’s class system at the time of its recording. The animals mentioned in the lyrics represent various classes in society, with the “dogs” and “pigs” representing the ruthless, ruling and business classes, and the “sheep” representing mindless followers. Consisting of only five tracks, three are extended pieces, bookended by short reprises of the song “Pigs On The Wing” at the beginning and end. The songs are nearly all written and sung by Roger Waters, with David Gilmour co-writing and sharing vocals with Waters on “Dogs”. Gilmour’s minimal contribution to the writing is due to him being preoccupied with the birth of he and his wife’s first child, and also because of mounting creative tensions and squabbles over money within the band. Things are particularly tense between Roger Waters and keyboardist Richard Wright, whose relationship has continued to deteriorate during this period, and carries over into the “In The Flesh Tour” mounted in support of “Animals”. It is also during a show in Montreal that Waters becomes agitated and spits on a fan in the front row, in which that incident becomes the catalyst for the next release, the landmark album “The Wall” in late 1979. The now iconic cover artwork for “Animals” is conceived by Roger Waters and designed by Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis. The cover features the famed Battersea Power Station located on the south bank of the River Thames, with a giant floating pig hovering between two of the plants’ smokestacks. The initial cover shoot for the album cover becomes part of rock & roll legend when the giant inflatable pig breaks loose from its mooring above the power plant and floats away, flying into the airspace of Heathrow Airport, then landing in a cow pasture some thirty five miles away in Kent. The final cover image features the pig superimposed above the power plant. Reissued numerous times on CD since its initial release in that format in 1985, it is most recently remastered and reissued in 2011. It is also remastered and reissued as a 180 gram vinyl LP in November of 2016. “Animals” peaks at number two on the UK album chart, number three on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 4x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
