no one else noticed

headcanon where lance breaks down.

everyone was joking and making fun. and he knew deep down they didn’t quite understand. didn’t quite understand how hurt he was able to get. he wasn’t brave like hunk. he knew that. he wasn’t able to not mind comments like keith. he  wasn’t super smart like pidge. he didn’t show command and he wasn’t steady like his hero, shiro. he was aware of that.

so he goes to the training deck when no one else is awake. he goes to the stars and looks at them, trying to figure out some type of pattern that could help them. he learns altaen when everyone else is having fun. everyone thinks he’s just inside his room, relaxing, doing absolutely nothing.

lance tries to find something that will make him indispensable. he stops sleeping for days at a time. he stops going to breakfast. people like him don’t deserve to eat or sleep. only people who actually have something to the table do. he practically lives by this rule.

one day, he collapses under the pressure he puts in himself. no one else is aware of it. until coran comes in. he had noticed that lately the boy has been off. he noticed that someone has been using the training deck because they had logs.

he walks in to lance having a panic attack. he takes the boy in his arms and tries to calm him down, which is slowly working. he’s not used to comforting the humans, but he figures it’s the same as comforting the small child. in this moment, he whispers, “you’re like the son i lost.”

You are studying in a crowded library when you get a phone call. You ask a person sitting near you to watch your stuff and they respond with “I will guard it with my life”. When you return, the person is beaten and bloody with a dagger sticking out of their chest. No one else seems to notice…


“Here’s a real question: how have you survived this long when you’re so violently self-destructive?

Andrew cocked his head to one side in a question. Neil didn’t know if Andrew was playing stupid to rile him or if Andrew really was oblivious. Either way it was frustrating. He wondered why no one else had caught on, or if people noticed and just didn’t care enough to say it. Now that Neil saw it, though, he couldn’t look past it. Anytime the Foxes mentioned Andrew’s upcoming sobriety or Andrew’s name popped up in write-ups on the team’s performance at games, the focus was on what a danger he was. People talked about his trial and how it saved them from Andrew. No one said what they were doing to save Andrew from himself.

My Best Meta Yeta

I’ve been thinking about this one for a while guys, and I’m really proud of it. It might be a little confusing, but I urge you to bear with me here while I explain it all! This meta spans the entire series as we know it and exposes one of the biggest secrets the creators have been keeping from us. 

Buckle up folks, your minds are about to be blown!

Ok remember this guy in the background from The Great Game? You probably don’t. He’s a background character, meant to be over looked. But that’s exactly why we should keep looking at him.

Take note that he’s wearing a hat. This is an important detail.

Because who else wears a hat?

The man in this picture right here, from The Final Problem. He’s wearing a hat, and he has facial hair, just like hat man #1. Starting to see a trend? It gets better. Guess who ELSE wears a hat?

Mary. That’s right. 

Mary, who died later on in the episode. This is an important clue, as it will show up again later. 

Now Mary doesn’t have any facial hair, but that’s because there’s another clue hidden in this scene. It’s hard to decipher from all the other information shown to us on screen, but I’ve highlighted it here for you.

France is a country in Europe. Now BBC Sherlock takes place in England, so why are they showing us this word, “France”, a country that is definitely not England? Well, the people in France speak French, and when they speak English, which is the language most people in England speak, they have a French accent.

Who do we know has a French accent?

The waiter from this scene in The Empty Hearse. He’s only in a few shots, so it’s easy to miss him, but we very clearly hear him speak in a French accent. This is the only character on the show with a French accent, so there’s no one else it could be!

Notice how he has a mustache, which is a kind of facial hair. He’s also standing right next to John, who also has facial hair, as if to reinforce this connection! Now if we follow the facial hair/hat trail back to that first scene in The Great Game, we can see a very important detail on the table that John and Sherlock are sitting at. 

Brace yourselves, it’s a key clue that has been overlooked since the episode aired.

A pink phone!

The same one from A Study in Pink in fact! I’ve done extensive research and I can confirm that this is in fact an exact replica. This is not an accident. Now it’s time to connect the dots.

Remember the waiter at the end of the hat/facial hair trail? He was wearing a white shirt and black jacket. This is a strange combination to make, and is one of the only people in the show to wear such an outfit. Most people like John wears a jumper, or a blouse. Not the waiter.

Making this connection is essential. Because who do we see wearing a white shirt and a black jacket in A Study in Pink the very first time we see him?

Sherlock Holmes Himself.

That’s right guys! The waiter is Sherlock in disguise!

With all this information, it’s obvious now more than ever that Sherlock Holmes is the waiter from the restaurant! They’ve been hinting at it since A Study in Pink, and we had no idea!

Edit: this post was created for Reichencrack Day and is not intended to be taken seriously. At all.

i know that the fandom’s main love is pining Keith with oblivious Lance and i’m for that but I totally see Keith as not knowing what the fuck a crush is so Lance is the one that’s pining first but he has no idea he’s doing it, like he still flirts with all the other aliens but he tends to be the first one to volunteer for a mission that Keith’s going on, and he sulks when Keith goes places without him, and he gets kinda anxious when he goes without Keith because as reckless as the guy is, his presence makes Lance feel like he can be more clear-headed (I think Lance is just as foolhardy as Keith is when he’s by himself or with more cautious people but he’s one of those people who becomes more cool-headed the more reckless the people around him are)

and Allura is the first one who notices the way that Lance keeps putting his little defense drone into more dangerous situations so that he can be fighting next to Keith, and Keith starts complaining to Shiro or Pidge that Lance is being like, super competitive lately and won’t leave him alone?? What is happening all of a sudden he was always like this but now he’s extra like this??

And meanwhile Lance is complaining to Hunk about how annoying everything Keith does is but all he does is reveal just how much he’s been paying attention to Keith

and finally Pidge gets really frustrated listening to Keith whine and they just throw their tools across the room and shout “oh my god, Keith, Lance has a crush on you, like it’s so obvious has no one else noticed??” and as luck would have it, everyone else is around except for Lance, and Keith is like “what the fuck no?? I’ve seen him flirt that’s not how he does it he’s not flirting with me he doesn’t have feelings for me” but everyone else is around and they’re just like son.

Shiro just kinda shakes his head with his head in his hand, and Coran is like “well it’s not like they did it on Altea but it’s very clear that Lance is experiencing a severe case of feelings for you” and Allura’s like “I mean it’s obvious that he wants to be around you like 24/7″ and Hunk affirms that Lance talks a lot about Keith’s eyes and he might think he’s complaining but no one complains that lovingly about the color of someone’s eyes

And Keith just

stands there and stares like

everyone else knew?????  what is crush how do??

but he starts paying more attention to Lance then, and agreeing to let him come on more solo missions and volunteering to go on ones that Lance is going on because he wants to figure it out for himself, and they bicker a lot cause that’s what they do but Keith realizes that hey yeah they actually get along really well? And Lance keeps like, absently touching him, like giving him shoulder bumps or high fives or even like fixing Keith’s hair when it gets into his eyes like a mother hen and Keith’s like holy shit actually yes i think i like him is this what a crush is??

but the fun part is

Lance still doesn’t realize his own feelings

and it doesn’t come out until Keith, red-faced, blurts out in the middle of an argument that “I REALLY LIKE YOU AND YOU KEEP ACTING LIKE YOU LIKE ME SO STOP TEASING ME AND MAKING ME QUESTION WHETHER OR NOT YOU DO” and Lance is like ????????? and Keith storms off to hide in a ball in his room and Lance just looks helplessly at everyone else like “what’s his deal??” and they all just shake their heads at him like “dude….you’ve had a crush on him….for weeks…all the signs are there….”

And very very slowly it all dawns on Lance and he’s like

“how the fuck am I the always last to know everything???”

I need to talk about Big Mom

And I’m totally going to abuse my platform here to do it so TUCK IN

-She’s the female character we’ve all been asking for. Has no one else noticed that? She’s big, she’s powerful, she doesn’t have a male presence presiding over her. She runs a country, she takes what she wants because she wants it. Yeah, she’s the villain of this arc. And? She’s a bomb ass villain. She’s got her plans on LOCK. 

-She isn’t this hourglass goddess we’ve been conditioned to expect from Oda. Obviously he hasn’t abandoned his common female shape principle (Pudding, Smoothie), but she’s still a step away from that. AND, even better, despite her size she wears low cut dresses and pink and print. And none of that stops her from being a Yonko and obviously no one thinks less of her for it. Or else. That’s! So!! Cool!

-She runs a matriarchy. Her kingdom functions as a Capitalist nation, but she herself is a matriarch, and her words are law. And she obviously has no intention of letting Pudding become a Vinsmoke or be controlled by them, which suggests she likely would hand power to her daughters before her sons. 

-Speaking of her daughters, they all seem to be pretty VERY headstrong. Lola running off to find her own destiny, Chiffon becoming her own person and still being a mother and wife, Smoothie with nearly a 1 Billion Beri bounty, Pudding the manipulative shithead we’re gonna love to hate forever. 

-ALSO have we thought about how many kids she’s had??? Think about how long ago she must have started having kids. Her first kids could have been born on ships, been there for battles, watched her climb to the top, and learning how to be viscous little monsters. Can you imagine being pregnant AND being a pirate? 

I’m totally here for Big Mom right now. Yeah she’s evil, but wow what a character. For real, a strong, huge, vivacious woman with terrifying power and an army at the tip of her manicured finger? Sign me up for more of this please. It’s about time.

Zimbits AU where your world is black and white until you hear your soulmate laugh


Jack knows his parents’ story off by heart.

Bob had been on the ice at an away game. The crowd was screaming; it was overtime. Things had been a bit tense. 

And then Bob had put a puck in the net of the opposition and that was it. The disappointed home audience had fallen into a quiet grumble after some polite clapping. Many hands were slapped on Bob’s back as the team skated towards the edge of the ice. Bob had been just about to leave the rink, and then-

A laugh. A snorting, wonderful laugh, and his world filled with color.

He had frozen where he stood, ears caught on the sound of that laugh and the voice that followed.

“I told you, didn’t I? No one’s got it like Bad Bobby Z!”

It was his turn to let out a laugh and he did, with gusto. His voice boomed so loud it had seemed to reverberate around the arena, every head swiveling to the source of the noise.

Every time he told that story, Bob swore blind he heard his soulmate’s gasp in the ensuing silence. Alicia would roll her eyes fondly, stating that she did not gasp, thank you very much, and that the dreadful nickname she’d called him had been popular among hockey fans at the time. 

Whatever the truth, they’d introduced themselves moments later and were married within the year. It was like that, with soulmates. Instantaneous.

Jack’s not heard that story since before the Draft. He knows people think if he’d found his soulmate before- before, he wouldn’t have done it. But people tend to over romanticize things out of habit. In the end, soulmates and laughter and colors had very little to do with how he ended up here.

Rapture Gothic

- Try as you might, you cannot remember the sky. You ask friends and neighbors about it, but they just stare at you before retreating. Later that day, you notice a dark figure following you. 

- At the market one day, you see a woman with no nose and filthy hair. She waves at you and whispers something, looking strangely distorted, before the crowd swells and you lose track of her. Later, you realize she’s told you happy new year. 

- People are going missing. Nobody mentions it, not even you, but you wake one morning to find surgeons leaning over you in a dark exam room. You try to speak but can only communicate in low groans.

- Do not trust the parasite. Do not listen to the parasite. Do not obey the parasite. You used to think Ryan was referring to people, but there’s something squirming under your skin and someone chanting in your ear.

- War is coming. War is coming. War is here.

- A  strange-looking man asks you if you know your family well. You go to tell him yes, but gag out blue butterfly before hearing yourself say no, instead. You go home and try to forget anything happened.

- People say Fontaine is dead, but sometimes you swear you can hear him laughing.

- There’s blood in the streets. There’s blood on the walls. There’s blood everywhere. You try take a sip of water, but you find it is both red and coppery. You swallow anyway.

- The big daddy is there. The big daddy has always been there. He was there before you and will be there after.

- The roof is leaking in Apollo Square. The roof is leaking in Paupers Drop. The roof is leaking Fort Frolic, in Arcadia, in Siren Alley. Even when you can’t see it, you can feel the droplets hitting you. No one else notices.

- You hear the little girl’s voice from beside the wall. You hear the little girl’s voice from behind the wall. You hear the little girl’s voice from inside the wall. 

Little Subconscious Mysophobic habits:
  • Remembering everything your hands touched today since you could last wash them.
  • Feeling like you have to wash and sanitize your hands to eat with even if you’re going to be using utensils.
  • Trying to breathe in as little as possible in close quarters with strangers, holding your breath completely if you have to pass through airspace you saw somebody coughing into.
  • Changing out of clothes strictly because you wore them to the store.
  • Taking groceries from deeper in the shelves where people are less likely to have touched or coughed on them.
  • Using anything other than hands wherever possible when forced to open a public door.
  • Trying to touch that door in a less than obvious spot other people aren’t as likely to have used.
  • Using only the knuckle of a finger, ideally your pinky, when forced to use a public touch screen (*demonstrably as germ-friendly as anything in our civilization can possibly be short of an actual petri dish, by the way)
  • Pressing buttons with the end of a car key.
  • The creeping horror of waiting rooms, elevators and public transportation.
  • Some small part of your mind taking a second to mentally analyze whether your throat feels normal every single time you swallow throughout the day.
  • Being so used to doing all these little things since childhood that they don’t actually slow you down or impact your quality of life and it doesn’t even occur to you that they’re even uncommon at all until every so often someone else notices one of them.

One of my favorite things about Andrew is how focused on recovering from his trauma he is. And how he doesn’t give a fuck if no one else notices or cares. By the end of the series, he’s taken a lot of steps forward to try to reclaim his life yet the team, other than Neil, still views him as dangerous and unhinged. But he doesn’t care because his recovery has nothing to do with them. It’s not about making them feel more comfortable or being a better person. It’s about having control of his life again. And even if everyone can’t see how far he’s come, it doesn’t mean he hasn’t made any progress.

even saw isak on the first day of school and since he was always strategically placed in isak’s line of sight when isak started noticing him, even probably followed him around and sat close to him whenever he could. this means that he saw all the little things no one else noticed. he saw isak yawning and scratching his nose when it was too damn early for anyone to be fully awake. he saw isak stretch his arms above his head and make that high pitched whiny noise. he saw isak hum the postman pat theme song while waiting for the boy squad to show up at lunch. he saw isak struggle with his locker and completely destroy his books every single day. he saw all these stupid things people do when they think no one’s looking and he was completely mesmerized by it

Y’all acting like predicting an alien threat to MCU’s Earth is some wildly amazing thing that no one could do unless they were ‘paranoid’! 

Aliens have already attacked! They actually attacked out of a big giant hole in the sky! And they whooped our asses but for the grace of six people, some really brave police/firemen, and a re-directed nuke. We also have big shiny fuck-off energy stones all around our earth that are clearly not from around here that people keep fighting over, and we know that Loki wasn’t acting alone.

Tony was the only one who saw the full might of what one attack brought, Tony is the only one beside Thor (and Fury) that is appreciating just what kind of force could be brought to bear against Earth, but Tony has apparently informed these suckers multiple times about what they’re up against and nobody chose to listen. Also Tony, “The Futurist is here!”, Tony Stark, Actual Genius, has been established as hyper-vigilant about future threats, both homegrown and far-flung.

Tony already had a plan in place for preparing for extraterrestrial threats before Wanda fucked with his head and before the Mind Stone fucked with Ultron that wasn’t ready for implementation but was a big idea in his head. “But his PTSD just made him paranoid” yes his PTSD is a big part of his character, so thrilled you finally noticed, he still did it and no one else did and this has been established for multiple movies so take your L and piss off.

“What? Why?” Her twin sister, Y/N asked after she got out of the passenger seat. “Is everything okay?" 

"Yeah,” Sabrina answered as she locked the car and handed the keys over to Y/N, as it would be her turn to drive back home after school. “She wants to go over one of my college applications. I made a mistake on one of them and she’s going to help me fix it,” Sabrina explained.

“Oh, okay. I’ll see you in class then,” Y/N waved goodbye as she walked towards the courtyard to meet up with her friends. 

“See ya!” Sabrina called out before making her way towards the front office.
