What happened to Lance's sniper team?? There's always at least a group of two, but usually three. There's the sniper, the spotter, and the security. Sniper shoots shit, spotter calculates distance/wind speed/temperature/etc. and the security makes sure no one sneaks up behind them and kills their asses while all this is going on. (Usually at least one person has some kind of more advanced medical training) Not that I don't like ur au, I love it!!! I'm just curious. You're amazing tho!!!

OKAY THIS IS honestly something i should have researched because i never really thought about sniper actually having teams consisting of two or more people and after you sent me this it clicked into place. SO THIS IS COMPLETELY MY BAD i never thought about Lance having a sniper team of his own at all. 

I do have it thought out that as a single team the Voltron Force often switch pairs depending on the mission. Shiro and Keith being the most close quarters combat capable out of all five, usually serve as the infiltrators or the front lines. But if the mission doesn’t require as too many roles to be fulfilled, the support team will get someone else to back them up, or vice versa. 

Coincidentally, Lance and Hunk have more advanced medical training than the other three! :) But now that you brought this to light i’m just like lol i should have thought this through…. Perhaps before Lance joined the Voltron Force, he was with a sniper team of his own.

[The Voltron Family] The Shirogane Family did grocery shopping every Sunday. They usually didn’t even need a list because Shiro and Keith were so used to what they buy, but for the sake of the kids enjoying the trip, they had one done. Every week, someone was The Grocery Ambassador which was basically someone who held the checklist clip board.

This week it was Hunk. 

They got two shopping carts, one for Keith and one for Shiro. Shiro placed Pidge on the flip-up child seat.

Pidge: *settled on the seat* Daddy Shiro!
Shiro: Yes, baby? *smiles*
Pidge: Come here. *grabby hands and pulls Shiro’s face to give him a loud smack on the lips* *giggles* I love you lots!
Shiro: *clutches chest* I love you lots, too. 
Pidge: Can I get gummy worms?
Shiro: *boops Pidge’s nose* Yes, you can, my darling.
Keith: You know she literally just tricked you, right? *raises an eyebrow*
Shiro: *turns to Keith* I would die for my daughter. *serious*
Keith: *rolls eyes fondly* *pats Shiro’s cheek* ‘Course, you would. *turns to Hunk* Now, baby. What should we get first?

Hunk looked at his list, his other hand holding a pencil to check the boxes once they were done. He looked around and back again to his clipboard. Being The Grocery Ambassador was a real important job that needed to be done properly.

Hunk: *points to the aisle 01* Fruits first. We need apples, oranges, pears—
Lance: *wraps his arms around Hunk and places his chin on Hunk’s shoulder* Can we get mangoes? I love mangoes.
Hunk: *frowns* It’s not on the list, Lance. We need to follow the list.
Lance: *looks up at Keith* Daddy Keith, can we get mangoes? We haven’t had mango shake in a while. I love mango shakes.
Hunk: But Lance—
Keith: *places a hand on Hunk’s shoulder* It’s alright, sweetheart. I’m sure we can spare some money for mangoes. *smiles at Lance*
Lance: *smiles so wide* Yay! Go write that down, Hunk! I’ll go get some!

They continued doing their shopping with Hunk leading the way.

Shiro: *notices some weird snacks on the cart* Pidge, put that back.
Pidge: But Daddy Shiro!
Shiro: How many candies do you even need? 
Pidge: *spreads arms* A lot! I’m a growing girl!!
Shiro: Indeed you are. But candies aren’t going to help you grow. It will just make your teeth rot and it will be ugly. Then all your teeth will fall out.
Pidge: *gasps* THAT’S NOT TRUE!
Shiro: Yes it is. *turns to his husband* You tell her, Keith.
Keith: All your teeth will fall out. *nods* And you can’t smile anymore.
Pidge: *cries* You two are so mean!! 
Keith: *smiles* Perhaps just two packs of candies, yeah? *caresses Pidge’s crying face* That way, only half of your teeth will fall out.
Pidge: DADDY KEITH!! *cries even more*

They were in the cereals section, a.k.a. The Aisle of Doom. Hunk had Keith hold his clipboard temporarily as he held onto KoKo Krunch and Cocoa Puffs.

Hunk: *looks so troubled* Koko Krunch or Cocoa Puffs?
Pidge: Koko Krunch!! 
Lance: Cocoa Puffs!!
Shiro: They’re kinda the same thing. 
Three kids: *turns to Shiro* THEY ARE NOT!!!!
Keith: *shakes his head in disappointment at Shiro* I can’t believe you just said that. The nerve!
Shiro: *gapes* But—they—they are the same cocoa flavoured!
Keith: *bends down so he’s eye level with Hunk* KoKo Krunch has some toy freebies. It has How To Train Your Dragon. *points at the back* Has games too. 
Hunk: I love How To Train Your Dragon. *sparkly eyes*
Lance: *leans to Keith and places his chin on Keith’s shoulder so he can nuzzle Keith’s cheek* What about Cocoa Puffs?
Keith: *places hand under chin* Cocoa Puffs has an activity book. No toys though, buddy. It’s a coloring and puzzle book.
Lance: *hugs Keith tight* *smiles* I love activity books.
Shiro: *sighs* *smiles* Why don’t you just get both?
Hunk: *looks at Keith* Can we get both, Daddy Keith?
Keith: *nods* Yeah, you can. *chuckles* *pinches Hunk’s cheek*

They were in the cold drinks section. Keith whispered something to Shiro that made Shiro smile at him and pull him closer to give him a kiss on the cheek. Then Keith saw an elderly woman looking at them, causing him to separate from Shiro instantly, straightening himself. 

Hunk: Daddy Shiro, how many chocolate drinks again?
Shiro: Just 7, Hunk. One for each day of the week. 
Lance: Can I get the big melon milk bottle for breakfast? Daddy Keith?
Keith: *distracted because he sees the woman approaching them* Uh…
Elderly Woman: *to Lance* Make sure you check the expiration date, honey.
Lance: *looks at the woman* Oh! Okay. *checks the bottle* 
Elderly Woman: It’s on the bottle cap. *points with a smile*
Lance: *gives to Keith* I’m not sure. But is it okay with that date?
Keith: *looks at the bottle* Yeah, it’s fine. You need to drink this in 6 days.
Pidge: *waves hand at Shiro* I want orange juice, too, Daddy Shiro? Can I?
Shiro: *chuckles* Alright, I get you a box, sweetheart.
Hunk: *tugs Keith* Daddy Keith, we’ve gone beyond the grocery list! *worried*
Keith: That’s okay, baby. You’ve done such a great job. 
Elderly Woman: Sometimes you go beyond what you planned, little boy. 
Shiro: That’s true. Especially when you have these three kids.
Pidge: Daddy Shiro!
Shiro: What? You were the first grocery list breaker!
Pidge: Daddy Keith! Daddy Shiro’s being mean to me again!
Elderly Woman: That’s just how your daddy loves you, little girl.
Pidge: *pouts* I don’t like it. *crosses arms*
Shiro: Awwwww, baby. Let Daddy kiss that pout away. 
Pidge: NO. I don’t love you. *turns head away*
Shiro: Keith!!!! Pidge won’t let me kiss her!
Keith: *shakes head* *turns to the elderly woman* Sometimes I feel like I have four children to be honest. *smiles fondly*
Elderly Woman: Never a boring day then. *chuckles*

Not My Type by deniallisstrong

When a group of five teenage girls go out to eat, all the girls have their eye on waiter Zayn, making a competition of who can get Zayn to fall for them–but it doesn’t seem that Zayn has any interest in the girls at all… but rather the crinkly-eyed boy at the table, Liam.

Also check out Work In Progress 

Liam doesn’t expect to receive a pickup line on his laptop—and he certainly doesn’t expect it to come from a mysterious Dj MaLiK either. But it seems anything can happen in a coffee shop

False Start by craziamlove 

We made a start, be it a false one, I know…

Or, where Zayn has a fake boyfriend, Liam loves football, and the other three are along for the ride.

All is Fair in Love and War by bad1ands 

Up-and-coming journalist Zayn Malik, in hopes of later being allowed to cover more substantial stories, takes on an assignment by which he must pull a guy and then push him away in ten days.
Advertising executive Liam Payne, in order to take over a major campaign for his company, must prove to his associates that he’s able to woo a man in less that two weeks.

They walk into a bar.

(An AU based off of the 2003 film How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.)

Not Haunted by jomouse 

Liam moves into a house he’s convinced is haunted, despite the reassuring words of his new housemates.

And Whose Wish, also by jomouse!!

Niall hires Liam to cater his flatmate Zayn’s surprise birthday party.

Fever Pitch by liamsfreckles

“How do you feel? When you come back to a place like Bradford?”

“I think it’s massively important, like, for me that I come back here. ‘Cause it grounds me, as a person. Just reminds me of why I started doing what I did.


A grin. “Yeah. Football.”

A Football AU where Zayn Malik is at the tail end of his illustrious career and going back to where it all began, Liam Payne is the one he never saw coming, and how one injury could change Zayn’s life forever.

You’re the flame behind my eyes by sunnysideup

‘I said I know now why you never asked why I said yes, and that’s fine Liam, I get it now, you never cared’

Liam is Zayn’s boss. He asks Zayn to pretend he’s engaged to him for a weekend at his parents’ - This is what comes next.

Or another fake engagement AU - Inspired just a little bit by the film 'The Proposal’.

hello kisses sweet as wine by xxcaribbean

not everyone is brave enough to go after the things they want. too much judgment and little respect creates nothing but fear; yet zayn’s always pursued what he’s felt regardless of those hang ups, and there’s not a day that goes by that he doesn’t regret any of his choices.

now, though, his decisions go a little beyond the spectrum of what people might consider normal, but zayn swears he did it out of love for himself and for his family. but mostly, it’s for his insatiable need to feel steadiness for once in his life.

zayn doesn’t expect mr. payne to have all the answers, and he certainly hadn’t meant to leave an impression.

so, this isn’t really a love story. well, it shouldn’t be.

The Way We Do by CupcakeCait 

Zayn and Liam play on rival football teams, and it’s hate at first sight, in Zayn’s case at least.

We Do What We Have To by iwanttowriteyouafic. 

“He watched the tape later, though, when Zayn had gone for a midnight shower and the apartment was silent. He skimmed through, desperately wanting to watch how they fit together before the clip is edited, but knowing that’s not what he’s looking for. No, he’s looking for the ending, where Zayn swaggers out of bed: plump lower caught between pearly white teeth, face eclipsing into a cheeky grin when he examines himself in the live feed. He looked directly into the camera, a tiny eyebrow raise accompanying his smirk giving hint that he’s enjoying the attention for a little more than what he’s being paid.”

(Or the one where Liam finds himself needing money quickly, and Zayn has a surprising suggestion of how to help.)

It’s Always Been You by livingforamiracle 

An AU where Liam consistently goes on bad dates only to realize that his favorite dates are the ones where he’s holed up in his flat with his best friend Zayn.


“That’s all they are!”

First of all: I feel there’s one thing that goes beyond cultures, and that’s being called by your full name by a person with more authority than you (usually your parents).

That shit is scary as hell. It means a storm is coming, at least in my culture. When you hear your parents say your full name, you know it’s time to run away.

Ukai is wonderful here, though. He understands what’s going on inside Kinoshita’s mind without asking, and he offers a solution that, let’s be real, is a really good one. We tend to idealize those people who are better than us at something, to the point of forgetting that they are human as well. Kinoshita was already feeling that pressure of thinking “these people are famous and I’m just a normal guy from a normal place”. But Ukai knows how to deal with this mentality. Can we talk about how he’s a great coach even though he’s still young? 

Now, back to this scene. You might be thinking “you skipped a detail”. A tiny detail. Don’t worry, I saw it. Maybe Ukai should have said my full name because there’s a storm coming for me… WHAT DO YOU MEAN OSAMU IS 16.

SIXTEEN. SIX. TEEN. HE’S A SECOND YEAR. HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE 17. HE WAS SUPPOSED TO… *remembers the Japanese school year begins in April* …I am dead inside. How am I supposed to deal with this. Ukai, you just can’t drop this bomb and let me lie there, crying over the fact that I’m getting old. I’m having a crisis right here, Ukai.

(I promise the other day a friend got mad at me for saying I was having a crisis at my age for feeling old, lmao. Compared to some people, I’m still young.)



This may have just made me cry a little bit.

I can pinpoint the exact moment I “got into” wrestling.

My boyfriend, who lives 600 miles away, spent a weekend with me, April into May 2016. He told me he’d gotten into watching not only pro wrestling, but also adjacent youtube content! I’ve never been one for wrestling but okay, I’ll bite, show me, I say.

So he’s showing me some wrestling-related youtube videos. He plays WhatCulture Wrestling’s “10 Most Savage Times Wrestlers Got Payback.” Number 7, the supermarket brawl. A still image of Booker T’s face as he’s making an “OH SHIT” expression, whilst Adam Blampied up there says, “Speaking of people who done fucked up–”

My boyfriend had to stop the video, and both of us spent about five solid minutes flopping around my living room, laughing until we cried. That got me hooked on WhatCulture wrestling top 10 lists, which I listened to for background noise while I played Flight Rising. Which in turn got me interested enough to start watching a few matches at my boyfriend’s behest. Which turned into watching Raw with him when I went to visit him. And then us chatting on facebook messenger while watching Raw, Smackdown, and various PPVs. I watched the Royal Rumble chatting on facebook messenger with him while laid up after surgery.

Fast forward to this point, where I scheduled a trip to visit him SPECIFICALLY so that we could watch our first Wrestlemania together, side by side. I tried to hatch a plot to bring him to visit me so we could actually attend Extreme Rules live, but it fell through because money. We’re trying to write a massive wrestling AU together for one of our first mutual fandoms, for god’s sake. We’re in that deep. It’s been a little over a year for me and wrestling has been a thing that’s helped ease some of the pain of being in a long-distance relationship for me. We watch wrestling together and for that amount of time, the 600 miles between us doesn’t feel so far at all.

Both of us were excited and happy for WhatCulture when they got WCPW off the ground. I probably haven’t watched as much of it as I should have by now, but it still makes me fucking proud to see that these nerds made a youtube channel, let it grow, and then used that channel to build their own damn wrestling promotion because they were just that fucking passionate about wrestling.

I repeat: Somehow, a bunch of people who were really into wrestling started a freakin top ten list youtube channel and grew their own wrestling promotion out of it. How does that freakin happen? World we live in is weird, ain’t it!

And now Youtube declared wrestling-related content “not advertiser friendly.” They can’t afford to bring back their weekly show now, and that sucks in a really sad way. Heartbreaking not just for them but for like? Everybody who does wrestling content on youtube? There’s loads of em that I don’t know of yet, if you have recommendations GIVE RECOMMENDATIONS PLEASE.

Look, I’m not gonna go hawk the petition or anything - we all know how little internet petitions mean these days. The only way I can see that working is if Lilly Singh (IISuperwomanII, youtube megastar, zillions of followers, loves wrestling, was pointed out at WM 33) goes and brings it up to Youtube corporate or some shit.

Again, I’m not hawking the petition or anything, I just had to throw my emotions at the screen because goddammit, this made me cry. He’s got a point. Wrestling does bring people together.

anonymous asked:

Do you think you'll have any Asian characters in this AU? I mean, like Korean or Chinese or Japanese or something like that. I don't usually see people of my race in things like these. It's okay if you don't, just asking ^-^

//(( I am planning on doing that! I’m thinking one of the diamonds, like either White or Yellow. Not Blue because She’s going to be Indian, there were many wonderful cultural references towards that in the episode.

Actually, I think I will make Yellow diamond Korean and White Diamond Chinese. More Asian representation that way hmmm//))

anonymous asked:

okay so I'm sorry but like could we draw other fanart for your merstuck AU? for example, romantic Davekat. I know you don't ship it and wouldn't draw it, so I was wondering if I could draw from your AU using your mermaid designs. thanks!

I actually drew Davekat sometimes although it’s usually not very romantic when I do lol

but yeah that’s fine if you want! c:
