Tell me more about the Paladin Training AU! What does the rest of the team think about golden boy Shiro, and how does this effect them when they form Voltron for the first time? Tell me more about the first time they decided training and dark history be damned, they're going to do this Voltron thing their way. Tell me about how the team decided THEIR Shiro, (not the Shiro conditioned by training, quiet and submissive before the command, but the Shiro who rebels and protects) is the one they 1/2

2/2 will follow till the end of days. Tell me how these strangers became the team that will save the universe.

(So I originally wrote this from Lance’s POV in tumblr and then lost all of it when my computer suddenly reset.  This version ended up better anyway.  It doesn’t answer a lot of your questions, but they also weren’t strangers in this AU.  They were raised together.  But here’s that story anyway.

Based on this original post)

The short of it was: nothing was the same since Zarkon betrayed them.

The short of it was: Hunk wished things could go back to how they’d been.

Those first few days right after had been terrifying.  The panic, the yelling, the strained atmosphere.  Hunk had wanted to stay in his room for it, but he wasn’t allowed to, and even if he was, Lance would have dragged him out.  For the longest time, they’d had no idea what anyone was talking about.  There were just clipped commands, being told to sit and wait and be good, while horrifying words like ‘rogue’ and ‘attack’ and ‘death toll’ were thrown around, just barely within hearing.

All of them had been put into one room and while they weren’t told not to leave, the implication was strong.  Immediately, Keith turned to Shiro, trying to get him to spill.  In hindsight, Hunk didn’t know why they’d all thought Shiro would know, except that he was older and he was going to be their leader someday, and he always helped with the answers to their nightly school work, so maybe he knew this too.

Shiro hadn’t.

“I’m sorry, I’m sure they’ll tell us soon,” he told them, hands up in placation, and at the time he hadn’t noticed, but when he thought back, Hunk thought Shiro looked just as scared as the rest of them.

That look only got stronger when one of their instructors burst in.  “Shiro,” he called, voice icy, and Shiro stared back, eyes wide.  Shiro always seemed so much older than them, but in that moment he’d been very young looking.  “You are to come with me.”

It wasn’t even an order.  It was a demand.  It was a threat.

“Just me?” Shiro asked, and ducked his head at the immediate glare.  “Yes, sir.”  Iverson’s hand clamped down on his upper arm, rough in a way none of them usually saw, as Paladins to be.

He was dragged away, and Shiro cast another wild look over his shoulder.  “I’ll be back soon,  Stay calm.”

Then he was gone.

[TRANS] BTS Japan Official Fanclub Magazine - Suga’s Biography

A mischievous kid growing up into a boy who enjoys reading 

I was born in Daegu in the South, the third biggest city of Korean, and grew up there until I came up to Seoul. When I was young, I was pretty much an ordinary kid. I loved playing around so my kindergarten teacher didn’t seem to like me. (laughs) I remember being scolded “It’s dangerous!” a lot. I also loved sports and was good at running, to the point of being picked as a relay runner from elementary school all the way up to high school. When it comes to studying, I’m slightly above average. 

I used to love playing outside with friends back then, but I changed as I grew up. Even when we went outside, it wasn’t like we did anything, we just gathered at the park. I wasn’t fond of that so many times I just stayed at home on weekends. My mother told me to go outside and meet my friends sometimes. (laughs) 

I had a thing for collecting, so I collected a lot of books when I was young. It was a time when I wanted to be a cultured man, wanted to pretend I know things too. Mature stuffs that didn’t suit my age or novels, poetry books, essays, newspapers,… I read everything regardless of genre. I don’t know why but up till middle school, I had the habit of reading books from the back page. I still read books sometimes now. My reading speed gets faster by reading multiple sentences at a time. 

Memories of first love from elementary school… I really don’t have any. Unlike Seoul, the provinces are conservative, and my school didn’t have that kind of atmosphere in which boys and girls talk to each other. If I was with a girl, I would become really shy and wouldn’t even say a word. 

The encounter with hip hop
Started composing in middle school 

I started to be interested in music in 5th year of elementary school, while watching the performance of “Stony Skunk”, Korean artists, on TV. It was the prime of ballad back then so if 18 teams perform on a music program, 10 would sing ballads, 5 would be idols and the other 3 would be other genres. They were one of those 3 teams. It was so cool how they were different from other singers. Up until then, I didn’t have any interest in music, but with Stony Skunk, I started listening to hip hop and reggae music, and was influenced by Epik High as well. MP3 player was starting to come out at that time, but I bought a Panasonic CD player and listened with that. 

Along with listening to music, I also started writing music at the same time. It wasn’t like someone told me to do it, I just had the thought of having to do so. I started writing rap lyrics in elementary school and started composing after I went to middle school. Back then, no one around me liked hiphop… It became extremely popular in Korea now but when I first started listening to it, hip hop was a genre once popular a long time ago. I think there probably wasn’t anyone on the streets who raps, except for me. If I rap at the karaoke room, it would just become some kind of sound to my friends. You know the moving hand gestures that are hip hop’s specialty? I was picked on for that too. 

Despite that, I still kept liking hip hop and in my 2nd year of middle school, I went on the stage for the first time at a festival. I performed Dynamic Duo’s “Go Back” with a friend. I didn’t like standing in front of people, but at that time, I only felt like I have to do it. I showed the rap that I practice too, although it wasn’t anything great. (laughs) 

 Actually in middle school, I wanted to go to an arts high school so I composed classical music. But the tuition was too expensive so I ended up just going to a regular high school. I told my father “I have done enough music now so I’ll study hard in high school” and went to that school, but of course I didn’t. (laughs) 

Full-fledged activities as a rapper after joining a crew in town 

Middle school years was when I composed music to satisfy myself only, on a hobby level. It was after I changed the MIDI software that I started full-fledgedly making music. In 1st year of high school, I showed my song to a person that was like a mentor to me, and he liked it a lot. I was introduced to a hip hop crew called “D-town” and joined. That song had the feeling of new-age music but had hip hop beats similar to Nujabes. For your information, the mentor that acknowledged me studied at Berklee College of Music and is currently working as a movie music director.

I think I started rapping properly after joining the crew. I have been rapping since elementary school, but since there wasn’t anyone who raps around me, I thought I was the best. (laughs) 

After that, I came to the Daegu underground scene, and from then, I also got to know that you can’t make a living out of music in the underground scene. Most of the hyungs who made music with me that time was about 10 years older than me, there were also people over 30. They worked part-time jobs and made music at the same time, but it seemed very hard. Even when performing live, it was already a huge deal to have 100 audiences, and I hated that fact. I thought “If I success, could I be the liaison of the underground scene?”. There are plenty of people who make good music in the underground scene, so I thought when I become famous, I want to create a better environment for them, I want to show their music to the world. 

Just then, I knew Big Hit was holding an audition in Daegu. I came there knowing nothing but that it was a company formed by composer Bang Shihyuk, but I was told that I was accepted the next day. I heard it later that when he saw me, he immediately thought of letting me pass. Even though I wasn’t good at rapping that time. (laughs) 

Coming up to Seoul after becoming a trainee
Different from first thought…!? 

I came to Seoul on November 7th, 2010, when I was in 2nd year of high school. I still remember it now. 

I joined to company not to rap, but to become a composer. So I thought I didn’t need to dance, and let people who are good at rapping rap, I just needed to follow the producer path. But it became a totally different thing. (laughs) At that time, rather than idols, the company was planning to create a group consisting of rappers, but that changed. The members were Rap Monster, J-hope and me. There were also Supreme Boy, i11even-hyung who is now active in the underground scene and Iron-hyung who made it to the finals of Show Me The Money 3. I think if we debut like that, despite being good at rapping, we would fail. (laughs) 

Rapper & producer
The future Suga thinks of as a goal 

My 4-year-older brother plays a very big role in letting me be able to walk on the music path like this. He started liking hip hop under my influence, but when I came to the audition, everyone in my family opposed it except for my brother. They didn’t view music activities nicely, even my relatives told me “What music for you, go study.” So I only showed my songs to him. He was the first person I informed that I passed the audition too. Our relationship is so good that we’re like friends. I basically don’t drink alcohol, but I drink it with him only. 

My family all support me now, of course. Even the relatives that told me to study ask for my signatures. (laughs) 

These days, I have thoughts about wanting to also be active as a producer. I have no greed of being in the center, I just want to make music. I don’t have interest towards the entertainment world too, everyone says they want to act, or to go on variety shows, but I don’t want to do those. (laughs) But still, the first thing is to make BTS get 1st place in Korea as well as Japan. And myself too, I want to be the best rapper, the best producer. I don’t know if it would take time, but I have to try.

Name: Jared
Age: 18 in June
Country: United States

Ever since I was little I loved talking about myself, and I can talk about myself for hours and what I like and what I dislike and my views and standings on certain issues. I have a really open mind and I try to be a positive force in as many people’s lives as possible. Even though I like talking about myself, I’ve been told I can be a good listener, and I’m usually quiet in class unless I have something meaningful to say.
I really like sports, so like football, basketball, and baseball, and my favorite sport is baseball. I play some computer games when I can, but I also enjoy reading books and time to myself. I like most types of music besides any of this new age rap junk. I listen to classic rock, chill beats, jazz, classical, rap, power ballads, and I’m open to new types of course. I’m a vegetarian, but I don’t detest or look down at people that eat meat (as some would guess).
I’m a bi-romantic asexual, basically meaning that sex is on the lowest priority for me as far as relationships go. Quality time is my main love language so I would take a good hang out over a quick sex session. I lean towards non-binary people, not as like “Oh man they’re soooo hot, I just can’t get enough” but more as like “Wow that’s so cool that they have the courage and the confidence to be who they wanna be, and they look good as their true self” I pretty much hate my gender tbh, like why are most of the guys I see on the internet horny, sweaty, hairy, unemployed men? It just sucks that most people have to take extra precautions when interacting with people on the internet because of men like that. Just speaking from experience.
As a male, it’s harder for me to express my interests in things like writing, flowers, floral fabrics and designs, animals, feelings, and art with other males ore even people in my friend group. Consequently my best friends are girls, which is perfectly fine with me. I think having a pen pal is a great way to form a really cool friendship with someone in a way that is more interactive and meaningful than just texting a random person on the platonic page of craigslist.
If you haven’t already noticed by now, I enjoy writing in all forms. And when they said I could type as much as I wanted, I took them seriously. Thanks for reading all of this if you did. I really appreciate it.

Preferences: Someone around my age so 17-19 of any gender

If  you want to you can follow me back <3 I’ll give you extra cake!!

ALSO I got tagged by @thelightofthingshopedfor​! Cite the final line of five of your fics – your favorites, or the most recent ones. Tag five writers who should do this next.

Thing is I haven’t actually finished much, so you’re gonna get the final lines of the most recent parts of three, one that’s published, one that’ll be published shortly and one that needs some work but is almost publishable.

also they’re all Fallout and I’m probably gonna cheat a little to provide extra context as necessary

This is the biggest scoop we’ve had – I’ve had – in ages. Four years of the New Deseret government beat and fighting through all the red tape they throw at me will have all been worth it if we can get to the bottom of this. 

- Case File: Vulpes Inculta, the super rad epistolary fic I’m writing with @randamhajile​ (and I swear to God, the next part DOES EXIST, is in the works and WILL arrive soon).

“I– I’m sorry, Miss McAllister, I’m so sorry,” Jaramie sputtered, the words spilling out of his mouth uncontrollably, “I didn’t mean to offend you, or– or cause you any distress, please, forgive me…”
He was genuine. Jules could hear it in his wavering tone; he wouldn’t intentionally harm anyone. No, he was curious, just like the rest of his tribe, and Jules, a gentile with such an important role in New Zion and with her multitude of scars, would of course be a main focus of their curiosity. But that didn’t mean she had to put up with it.
She took a deep breath, stepped back and scooped up her clothes from the ground. “Just…just leave me alone. All of you, leave me alone.”
Reynard Ranch could wait. If she tried to do any work there today she’d just be distracted, spend more time fixing her mistakes than it’d take to install the telegram line. Dealing with the owner was another mess she was in no mood to take on. She trudged back down the hill to her house, locked the door behind her and opened a bottle of vodka.

- Fic about Jules’ stigmata tentatively titled Doesn’t Look A Thing Like Jesus that will probably be up on AO3 sometime this weekend, I’ll keep y’all posted.

“You’re wrong. I’m different– we’re different, we aren’t just common soldiers, I’m the Courier, you’re the Malpais Legate! And we have a second chance!”
“A second chance to live as righteously as we can, not to throw away on Caesar.” Graham turned and started back towards the camp. “You need guidance, and you won’t get that in the Legion. Stay here in Dead Horse Point and let me help you– I’ve been in this darkness myself and I don’t want you to suffer it alone.”
Jules hesitated for a moment but darted after him anyway, almost jogging to keep up with his stride. “You’re wrong, Legate. We can go home, we belong in the Mojave, in the Legion. I’ll prove it to you– just watch, you’ll see I’m right in the end.” One way or another, she’d convince him. And she wasn’t leaving without him.

- I don’t have a title for this one but in my mammoth 50-page draft doc it’s labeled as AU Where Jules Is Capable Of Not Letting Her Pride Get In The Way Of Saving Her Own Damn Life (please hit me up with title suggestions) and it’s about if Jules had escaped crucifixion by renouncing herself and her Legion work and escaped (just barely) to find Joshua Graham in Utah while still very much under the delusion that the Legion has a place for her.

Annnnnnd I’ll tag @dragonie, @caesarslegion and @beepish if y’all wanna do it!

2014 WWE Royal Rumble Winner and new Number 1 Contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XXX: Batista

And the crowd. Went. Insane.

But not in a good way.

I’m over this. I’m over the era of nostalgia. Granted, the Attitude Era was fun and there was a lot of awesome shit that happened between 1998 and 2005, but I am SO fucking over it. DX’s last “run” was boring. Jericho’s still a great wrestler, but he’s not going to do anything new. Rob Van Dam is blown up. The New Age Outlaws’ schtick has been the exact same for years. Brock Lesnar has gone from a technical powerhouse to a big, dumb thing. The Big Show is a crying or smiling mess. Kane is wearing a fucking suit to the ring. Triple H is a corporate monkey who’s never going to wrestle again unless it’s “best for business”. The only thing reigning in the nostalgia era that holds any merit is Goldust, who has completely revamped his style and is wrestling like he’s 19 years old and has been training since he was… born.

And then, there’s Batista. This mid-life crisis comes back on Raw and tells the champion “Guess who’s going to win the Rumble?” He then “beats up” a guy who could very easily destroy him in a real fight. Come a few days later and he’s in the ring with a roster full of “B” stars (a phrase he, himself, coined) and he could have very easily made some new star of the future look like gold, by either getting eliminated by Big E, getting tossed out by the returning Sheamus, or passing the torch to the WWE’s resident powerhouse, Roman Reigns.

But no. He wins the Royal Rumble. He wins the fucking Royal Rumble. Guess what, guys? You know all the excitement over the youth movement ruling the WWE today? You know all the joy we get from watching guys flourish and become champion superstars? It’s been halted. No more Del Rio. No more Ziggler. No more Shield. No more Daniel Bryan.

Nope, it’s back to the midcard for all of you kids who thought you might have time to reign. Of course, I’m sure a lot of the WWE superstars of today are happy to be a part of the WWE and hopeful for their futures, but the WWE of today is like the WCW of yesterday. The old guys are still on top of the company with a few company players getting the love they’ve earned by getting along with the brass (i.e. Goldberg to Cena, DDP to Orton, etc.).

Which isn’t to say that the WWE aren’t showcasing talented performers. because truly, the WWE Universe is responding to the wrestlers they’re featuring. People are excited to see The Big Show throwing Lesnar around (which led to a God awful Rumble match). People are stoked to see Kane, who can still run with the best of them. People love Goldust, who has proven that you can continue to evolve decades into your career. It’s exciting. It’s fun. It’s awesome to see these older guys working with the new guys and potentially giving the new guys the rub!

Hell, at first, I wasn’t exactly stoked about The New Age Outlaws getting the Tag Team Championships, but when I talked to a friend and they made it apparent that a) this leads to a Rhodes feud, and b) this means that the guys who beat the New Age Outlaws for the titles just beat The New Age Outlaws for the titles. That part, I can get behind.

But what does Batista stand to gain becoming a Royal Rumble winner and thus, the number one contender? What do WE gain? We get another main event at WrestleMania featuring and old dude who could barely go in the first place and damn sure can’t go now. Not to mention how fucking smug he is about it. “Thanks for the support, and the haters can suck my balls!” A 45 year old man, a father, a grandfather, is telling people to suck his balls.

He was in the ring for about 13 minutes and by the end of it, he was so soaking wet with sweat that it looked like he had just gotten out of a river.  Meanwhile, Roman Reigns, who eliminated 12 men (a new Royal Rumble record) was in there for over a half an hour, and he looked like he could have gone for another half an hour. Not to mention the bevvy of talent who were in there before Batista and could have come out afterward and gone faster, harder, and stronger than Batista can today.

Plus, when Rey Mysterio, God bless him, came out at number 30, the WWE Universe knew exactly what was going to happen. They knew that Rey wasn’t going to win, and that none of the final men would win. The only glimmer of hope was CM Punk, which Kane eliminated and the crowd immediately lost all faith. You could actually see people leaving because they had no interest in seeing Batista win. As soon as Roman was tossed out, what happened? People went insane. They were dying to see Daniel Bryan as the number 30 entrant. After his loss to Bray Wyatt earlier in the evening, it would have made perfect sense for Daniel to come out to the ring and send the fans home happy by becoming the number one contender by effectively winning the Rumble match. It could have come down to Roman and Batista with Roman tackling Batista to the outside and Punk and Daniel squaring off with Kane causing the distraction and Bryan taking advantage. It would have made sense in so many ways. CM Punk has beef with Kane, Daniel has history with Kane, they could have set up Triple H yelling at Kane like “the fuck were you thinking?”, Daniel could be challenged by the Wyatts for the spot since he “didn’t prove himself to Bray”, etc. etc. etc. Instead, nope, a big tease with Roman possibly winning and a swerve for Batista going over clean. The crowd was aghast, I lost my shit at the TV, and I drove home in misery.

His matches are about as typical as they come. Spinebusters, shoulder thrusts, spears, punches, and a Batista bomb (which is the laziest version of a powerbomb ever, and which he couldn’t properly deliver to Alberto Del Rio last Monday [which may have been because his pants were painted onto him, I don’t know]). He has literally made a name for himself from wrestling the same match hundreds of times and if he’s not burying someone or jobbing someone out, he’s unable to keep up with anyone, even The Undertaker. Not to mention, he was injury prone 10 years ago… what happens now that he’s a decade older?

What will happen at WrestleMania? Will it be Batista Vs. Orton, Batista Vs. Cena, Batista Vs. The Undertaker, Batista Vs. Triple H? The problem with all of those is that we’ve seen them all in big match situations and it’s been done to fuckin’ death. People are excited about young guys, like the Wyatts, the Real Americans, Ziggler, Fandango, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, The Shield, Big E Langston, and others because they’re still new to us, they haven’t done every main event possible and they have plenty of time to do them! The fans of the WWE are irritated as fuck because we now have to wait for these guys to flourish and become the stars we believe they deserve to be, the stars that they’ve earned the right to be. We don’t get that, because Batista has just one more Batista bomb left in him.

Save it. Please, save it.

I’m just honestly sad, just flat out f***** sad. Yes, I dropped an F-bomb there to emphasize how F'ing sad I am for the guys who bust their butts night in and night out – Ziggler, Punk, Bryan, etc – with no hope of getting their shot at this year’s Mania.” - Mick Foley

Defending Lex:

Nerd Is the New Bully.

“Welcome to the New Age. We live in a world where kids used to get beat up for even knowing who the Avengers were, are now cyber bullying people online for NOT knowing who they are. Nerds are no longer the powerless, they’re the ones in power. You know the oldest lie in America? It’s that power can be innocent.”

“They hide behind anonymity and troll to their hearts content. You know Lex Luthor. Hell you probably ARE Lex Luthor. Lex is the comment section made flesh. He’s the ultimate internet troll. Even funnier when you remember he actually births a giant troll to kill our heroes. If you were reinventing an evil genius for a modern era, it would almost seem foolish NOT to take this route. The New Age nerd is conditioned to hate anything popular. Everything is “overrated.” If we lived in a world where Superman exist, and he was popular, you know in this day and age there would be someone out there that would make it his mission just to show you how NOT great he is. So people asks what’s Lex Luthor’s motivation in BVS. Well that goes back to why people trash ANYTHING that’s popular. I’m pretty sure there’s a good reason, but I wouldn’t know because I’m not that guy.”

A short article which I found particularly amusing not least for the comments from bruised fanboy nerds, intent on remaining the victim in a modern age that no longer treats them as such. [x]

Mums are the best, legit they’re psychic. My beats headphones broke last week and then I lost my iPhone headphones today, I asked my mum where they where she was like “I don’t know but I bought you some new beats headphones ages ago I’ve been saving them because I new they would break eventually they’re at the top of your wardrobe” - my mum is the best she understands the struggle of no head phones 😭 I love her 💞
