i’m not jealous because i don’t trust my significant other
i’m jealous because i don’t believe in myself and my worth
and i’m convinced anyone could be better compared to me
my jealousy isn’t violent or restrictive to them
it’s sadness and self-doubt
“I’m not sure,” she whispered, looking down to the ground, “I’m not even sure if I do miss him. I miss the memories, and I miss talking to him and the way he made me feel. But I still don’t know if miss him, you know?”
Imagine Lance being a total dork in his and Keith’s relationship.
Like the very first day they start dating and he and Keith are holding hands. Lance pauses, glancing down at Keith with an impish grin that already he’s fond of.
“Hey Keith, you ready to take the next step in this relationship?”
And Keith is obviously flustered because “Jesus lance we only just started dating-”
But he breaks off as Lance walks a pace; takes a legitimate ‘step’ forward.
“Hah,” he chortles. “First step in the relationship.”
“Oh my god,” Keith groans as he moves to follow Lance.
“Woah, another step! Geez Keith, better slow down-”
“You’re the worst,” Keith says, but he’s smiling nonetheless
And on it goes. Each new milestone, every little accomplishment: another step. And it’s always Lance to do it. Always him to walk them forward, mostly literally, sometimes metaphorically.
Keith let’s him, and each time he laughs, no matter how many steps Lance has had them take now; no matter how many times he’s done the same bit.
Because Keith loves it, quite frankly, and he loves Lance.
Finally, they’re relaxing after the war is over, days into the galaxy wide celebrations, and Lance and Keith have found a quiet corner to have for themselves, free from the revelries of the parties next door.
And Lance is being his usual self; playing with Keith’s fingers and making his joke about taking the next step.
Only Keith holds him back. Prevents Lance from completing his joke.
“Actually, Lance, I don’t want to take the next step. I think I wanna try something else.”
And he get’s down on one knee, clasping Lance’s hand in his own and withdrawing a small silver band from his pocket. Lance is watching with a comical mixture of awe and surprise; tears beginning to form in his ducts.
“Lance, will you marry me?”
And then Lance is laughing, and it startles Keith for a moment until Lance himself is kneeling, pulling out his own ring from his pocket, and grinning as wet droplets cascade down his cheeks.
“I was just about to ask you that,” he chuckles, and now Keith is beaming as well. “You stole my bit.”
“Yeah well,” Keith replies, shuffling closer. “Say yes, and what’s yours becomes mine.”
Lance follows suite, until their foreheads are touching and the words they share are heard only by them.
“Pretty sure it’s ‘what’s mine is yours’.”
And Keith feels his eyes begin to shut; tilting his jaw upwards to meet Lance halfway.
“It already was,” he breathes. “Ever since that first step.”
You know what? I really wish people were as hyped about Sonequa Martin-Green being the first Black woman to lead in a Star Trek series as they are about the D*ctor Wh* casting. But then again, most feminists don’t care about non-White women so it’s to be expected that most of you guys don’t care about the fact that she’s making history too. And when you factor in Michelle Yeoh, you get it doubly so. Last time I checked, this is a pretty big deal for the sci-fi genre too.
What’s strange, to me, is people thinking that the D*ctor Wh* casting gives hope to all little girls when we know that’s not true. This issue is just so very layered and complex, but there is something particularly troubling about the fact that people think a White woman should be the symbol all little girls should look up to, regardless of their race. It’s so very arrogant to believe that little non-White girls will be represented by this woman that looks nothing like them. It’s very arrogant to think that little non-White girls should look up to the new Doctor as their new hero, especially knowing this casting is only a win for White women and White women only.
another assignment for the class I’m doing! They told us to grab any two characters from a game/movie/series and insert them in another game/movie/series. I first thought of choosing reaper and soldier and adapt them to dark souls because i rly love them but i didnt have any idea on how to adapt soldier and his rifle. And then. I thought of mccree all of a sudden and my friend suggested bloodborne, where you can carry guns! Because reaper isn’t reaper without his huge guns and mccree isn’t mccree without his pistol. So Yep. Mccree and reaper in bloodborne. (open the bigger pic in a new window if u want, it looks better bigger)
