I had a fever dream that was just Kel doing that code name meme thing. You can address me as Eagle One. Cleon, code name— Been There, Done That. Dom is— Currently Doing That. Yuki, code name— If I Had To Pick a Chick. Neal is— Eagle Two. (Neal: Oh thank the gods)

oh my gosh I never replied to this!

Because I have to say: fever dream aside, you’re imagining it all wrong. Kel isn’t the one for that meme. It’s all about Team Alanna.

Alanna: From now on, we’ll be using code names. You can address me as Lioness One. Jon, code name Been There, Done That.

Jon: *angsty wistful sigh*

Alanna: George is Currently Doing That.

George: *happy broad wink*

Alanna: Liam is It Happened Several Times on a Roadtrip.

Liam:  *smirk*

Alanna: Thayet, code name If I Had to Pick a Lady.

Thayet: *thumbs up*

Jon: *jealous glare*

Alanna: Coram is…Eagle Two.

Coram: Thank gods.

  13. LIKE GUYS I AM SO PUMPED OVER THIS ENTIRELY THEORETICAL TV SHOW

I like to imagine a painter being hired to paint Thayet and  coming and meeting her and just

staring

and eventually he (or they or whatever i dont really care) manages to bow  and say in an adoring, awed sort of  voice, “Your Majesty,” (here they kiss her fingertips) “I am afraid none of my paintings shall do your beauty justice.”

And it’s not flattery at all; they truly mean every word of it.

Because that’s how I feel whenever I try to draw Thayet, or see a fancast of her.

(the painter’s wrong, though; they paint the most wonderful piece of her riding bareback with a bow in her hand and the wind in her hair and she looks like a goddess, every bit as beautiful as she is in life)

(400 years later scholars and historians argue over whether or not it’s meant to represent Chavi Westwind, or the Threefold Goddess as the Mother or the Maiden)

(Eventually someone takes the painting from its frame to do restoration and finds the small note on the back that titles it ‘the Peerless Rider’ and remembers that the queen in the time of the Lioness was known as ‘the Peerless’ and that settles the debate for a few years)

(Then they start arguing over whether it’s Thayet as a solldier, or as Chavi, or as the Mother. Scholars never stop arguing.)

You seem to think we won’t like you unless you do things just like everyone else. Have you ever thought we might like you because you’re different?

We’re your friends, Alan. Stop thinking we’re going to jump on you for the least little thing.
