maybe old

Klance Bully Au
  • Keith got kick out of his old school. Probably a private or magnet, college prep school, and probably because of fights
  • He starts at new school with no friends of his own. He hangs out with Shiro and his friends tho. (Shiro is his brother and is a senior)
  • He is bullied by asshats (maybe like, old school lotor) for getting kicked out, being gay, etc. 
  • Keith and Lance vaguely start to become friends. Lance crushes hard but won’t admit to it
  • But then Lance is welcomed to the popular crowd and Lance can’t talk to Keith anymore
  • Keith, some time along the way, befriends Pidge and Hunk without knowing they’re Lance’s bffs 
  • Lance is then pressured into participating in beating Keith up
  • Lance feels really bad about it and doesn’t know what to do, while keith is pissed
  • Keith and Lance have a Confrontation 
  • Lance ends up kissing Keith and Keith is LIVID
  • Then langst (because I like to suffer) ensues and Lance is beating himself up over it. Keith complains to Pidge and Hunk, so they talk sense into him
  • Lance says sorry. Keith forgives but not forgets. They both want to hang out w/ their friends, but the other is there, so they hang out with them to piss off the other
  • Lance slowly wins Keith’s trust. Keith slowly falls in love
  • They make up and make out

tender moments always make me cry…one of my earliest memories is being maybe 5 years old living in Bayonne and waiting for my dad to tuck me in to go to sleep. and from my open door I heard him singing “amazing grace” to my siblings from their room and i cried really softly onto my pillow because it was just so beautiful to me and i could experience the love my dad had for my siblings even though the moment wasnt meant for me at all

shoutout to george, fred, and especially ron weasley for realizing that harry was stuck in abusive and unhealthy household and, in spite of the massive trouble they knew they could get in, taking immediate steps to personally see him removed from that environment, something no adult in harry’s life did.

I hate the way we can’t just like or dislike things anymore. Everything has to be a debate. If you dislike a thing, you have to prove that it’s objectively bad, preferably by calling it whatever-ist or whatever-phobic. And if you like a thing, you better be prepared to defend that preference against people who’ll tell you it’s whatever-ist or whatever-phobic.

Screw that. I like things because I like them. I dislike things because I dislike them. I don’t have to justify anything if I don’t want to, and other people sure as hell don’t have to justify anything to me. It’s okay to like different things. That’s why the world is so full of stuff, so that there’s something in it for everyone.

Old fans can shit on Awakening and Fates all they want, and while I don’t have much to defend Fates with aside from its budget likely going mostly to graphics and apparently the highly advanced map zoom that happens for every battle, I just have to say that I truly believe IntSys gave their all for Awakening.

Some fans criticize some of its sloppiness and perhaps some poor localization, but think about it: the Fire Emblem franchise was tanking. Awakening was going to be its goodbye, so they poured all their remaining resources into it, creating a game that pulled memories from every other game they’ve put out - the weapons, the DLC maps, the ability to recruit most old characters in Spotpass, etc. Not only that, but the cutscenes are top quality, despite how sparse they are, and the story was well-thought out.

But it was in listening to all of the Id tracks that I realized there was so much passion put into this game. The Id tracks are composing genius, in my opinion, and listening to them back to back tells Awakening’s story in music form. The elements in each song were so carefully chosen. For example, Id~Purpose~ (the track played during endgame) is Id~Serenity~ (the track played when meeting Chrom) with the support of new instruments and vocals, which definitely represents the unification of all the shepherds to fight with Robin (represented by the accordion in all the Id tracks). ~Purpose~ also has the main Fire Emblem theme overlaying it near the end.

And Id~Hope~ takes the melody from all of the tracks during Emmeryn’s arc, and is overlain by a new accordion melody not in any of the other Id tracks.

The symbolism in the OST is beautiful, represents all the effort put into Awakening’s development, and I definitely think that Awakening was the absolute best thing IntSys could make with what it had.
