love her in this

Amy Santiago, ladies and gentlemen.

Not to be extra but I think that scene of everyone clapping for Amy is so important. She spent the whole episode trying to be chill because she feels like she’s too high strung or high maintenance and it was a point of insecurity for her. And it’s just so beautiful that when she snaps back into that “high strung” mode she’s so brilliant and instantly solves all their problems and everyone literally applauds her for it. The squad loves my girl just the way she is and I think it’s so precious

i love re-listening to taz episodes, specifically in this case because i always somehow forget how hilarious lucretia is as a character. 

like so often she gets written very serious in fic, and it’s a travesty because Madame “we’re gonna hurl you like lawn dart” Director is a grade a shitshow.

allura on earth headcanons

- she likes the most overdone jokes earth has to offer. keith has lost the count of how many times she woke him up via phone call just to ask if his cooling machine is still running.

- lance’s mom: “how are you enjoying your stay darling?” allura: “it’s been wonderful so far!! i’m especially fond of your air spitters.” lance’s mom: “our what now.” allura, pointing at a hairdryer: “air spitters.”

- when they go grocery shopping she points at the man on a can of pringles with an immense amount of joy and asks hunk how humans had managed to find those pictures from coran’s old modeling gig.

- lance: “princess that’s not how a surfing board works. you can’t just ‘do a flip’ on your first try.” allura: “ok, but consider this: i’m gonna.”

- she most definitely owns multiple pairs of glittery light up skechers. when she got her first pair she stomped around the room the entire day until the battery drained out.

- shiro: “allura…please stop collecting random rats you see on the street.”  allura, while hiding five new rats under her coat: “i have no idea what you’re talking about.”

- two days after the team watches wonder woman during one of their movie nights hunk walks in on allura pretending her bayard is the lasso of truth and quoting lines from the movie.

- buying an ice popsicle, eating the entire thing in three bites and then watching everyone’s terrified reactions quickly becomes her favourite hobby

- lance helps her pick a sparkly lush shampoo and whenever she washes her hair she spins in circles until she’s dizzy, watching as it flies around her. (“why are you doing that?” “i believe lance calls it self care.”)

- she sends the paladins at least one student athlete meme a day. they’re not quite sure if she knows about the meme or if that’s just who she is as a person.

- pidge: “you are literally a magical alien princess who pilots a giant, sentient lion. why does this freak you out so much?” allura, flipping one of those baby bottle toys upside down for the twentieth time that morning: i don’t understand. where is the milk going? where is it coming from??“

- allura, wearing a pink party hat, children’s glasses and heelies while blowing bubbles in her strawberry juice with a straw: “i love earth culture.”
