on a mission action

The ending of Rogue One just makes what Leia did in the beginning of A New Hope even more badass than it already was. Vader literally watched her ship leave with the Death Star schematics, and when he catches up to her she straight up lies to his face, “I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m a member of the Imperial Senate on a diplomatic mission to Alderaan…” and before that she threatened action from the Imperial Senate. She literally threatened the second most powerful man in the galaxy to his face! Like she has to know that he knows she’s lying, but she does it anyway, what a badass!

Considering the ending of Rogue One, it makes what Leia did at the beginning of Episode IV even more gutsy; she straight up lied to the second most deadly man in the Empire about being on a “diplomatic mission” to Alderaan and then threatened Vader with legal action from the Imperial Senate after knowingly assisting the Rebel Alliance in obtaining plans to take down their biggest weapon.

Balls of steel the Princess had.

The Intuitives and their Levels of Focus

ENxJ - 100000000% focused at all times. They only allow half of their brain to sleep at a time, the other continuously processing the problems they are facing, ready to jump up and take action at any moment. When they are on a mission, do not stand in their way, or they will plow right through you. Clever, manipulative foxes that know exactly what they want and how to get it.

INxJ - Super focused…. On their thoughts and theories. Train of thought like a battering ram, but will trip over a pebble. Cannot be distracted from their thoughts, but is constantly distracted by their thoughts. Basically a wandering, introspective ball of flesh.

ENxP - Very focused ON EVERYTHING AT ONCE. Like ten thousand laser beams shooting in every direction. They are always ready to respond to anything and everything like a super karate clever banter ninja. Masters of instant comebacks and general witty remarks.

INxP - No focus. Ever. Where are they? What’s happening? They don’t know. The world is just so big and loud and distracting. It’s fine though. They’re just along for the ride. Sometimes the ride isn’t so great though, so that might actually get their attention, but there’s no guarantee.

Alec Lightwood. A lot od adjectives could be added in front of his name, but the one you liked to use the most is annoying. It wasn’t long ago that you were dragged into the whole supernatural world by your neighbour Clary and her best friend Simon. And right off the bat, Alec started a disagreement about what would be the best course of action for the mission they were on. It continued and often escalated every time you met, but there was undeniable sexual frustration bubbling underneath as well. Neither of you would admit to your feelings and both believed the other had no feelings at all.

Season 4: Sam Chooses Ruby over Dean, strangulates his own brother into submission, kills and drinks a nurse, breaks the last seal via killing Lilith. Releases Lucifer and starts the apocalypse. Because he thinks that only he can kill Lilith, save the world. Dean tries his best to stop Sam, but fails. (whats with getting choked to half-death by Sam and all that)

Season 5: Sam and Dean are held responsible for starting the apocalypse. Castiel says so, the angels say so, the show says so. Dean accepts that he is indeed responsible and gets to the clean-up work. 

Season 10: Sam goes against Dean’s explicit orders and uses witchcraft with the help of Castiel and Rowena. Dean is unaware of Sam’s actions. Sam doesn’t call off his mission even after he learns about the true nature and purpose of the Mark of Cain, which results in the release of the primordial darkness. 

Season 11: Sam and the narrative successfully, subtly shift the responsibility on Dean, and blame Dean for the bond he shares with the darkness. Dean, once again, accepts that he is responsible for releasing the darkness, despite his clear innocence in the matter. 

Season 11: Dean is kidnapped by the darkness and is unable to contact Sam. Sam goes to cage to visit Lucifer against Dean’s explicit wishes. Because he thinks that he is chosen by God to lock up the darkness. As a result, Lucifer escapes, possessing Castiel. 

Season 12: Sam says that “they let Lucifer out” implying Dean’s involvement in what Sam and Cas did. Dean doesn’t contest the truth of this statement and accepts the responsibility for the consequences of Sam’s actions. 

As you can see from the above list, this is not an one-off situation. This is a pattern. Sam fucks up, Dean is held responsible for the consequences of Sam’s actions, either overtly or covertly. Sometimes it’s subtle, sometimes it’s blatant –but this blame shifting and gas-lighting definitely happens. Every single season. Also note how Sam’s actions are fueled by his hubris. Again and again, Sam discards Dean’s advice, thinks that he is chosen, thinks that he knows the best –and when Sam’s choices and actions lead to a disastrous outcome like releasing Lucifer or the darkness, when the clean up time comes –then, Sam and the narrative shift the responsibility on Dean. 

The cycle continues.

The Squad
By Organization for Transformative Works

Author: valinorean | Word Count: 23k | Rating: PG-13

Summary: Within the Ministry of Magic is a department that takes on the assignments that the DMLE cannot. They are composed of an elite group of individuals that specialise in combat, infiltration and reconnaissance. Their identities are classified and missions are top-secret. They answer to no one save the Minister of Magic himself.

Review: Oh wow, this was just the coolest, most intriguing story ever - right off the bat, when Harry and Draco find out that they are selected to be a part of an elite department, to the selection process and training, and of course, their mission. The mystery and action was so well written and plotted out, there simply wasn’t a dull moment. 

With this kind of plot and background, Harry and Draco’s attraction also develops, but this fic is about so much more than just the two of them. It’s about their entire squad and all of its members, about how they all interact with each other. This fic is just perfectly plotted and executed, an absolute must-read for an entertaining, heart pounding time.

Content/Warnings: Action/Adventure, Mystery

Apollo 12 launches to the Moon, 11:22am EDT November 12, 1969. Twice during the ascent - once at 36 seconds and then at 52 seconds after liftoff - the Saturn V was struck by lighting. Onboard computer systems detected the electrical discharge and took the Command/Service Module’s fuel cells offline.

Though the spacecraft’s primary power source was now offline, battery backups could not fully power the instrumentation in their launch configurations. With the threat of an aborted mission a very real possibility, flight controller John Aaron instructed the crew to flip an obscure switch from “SCE to AUX”. This action saved the mission and became a famous line in the history of space exploration.

Today’s mission: Break down and photograph all of the vehicle wheels, then turn the photographs into viable textures for Joanne Yap, who has kindly agreed to build some 3D wheel models for me.

The wheels have always been a tricky proposition. Originally, I planned to get eight or ten people to help me race RC cars in the desert. But then the cars started to weigh more, filming licenses started to cost more, and I realized that one ill-timed crash could send me back to the workshop for weeks.

What I’ve settled on is removing the practical wheels and then adding them back in with Element 3D. That way, the wheels can spin and stay independent of the body, while still tracking with the rest of the vehicle.

Riotmaker is probably going to have to stay in pieces until I get it updated to reflect the differences with the full sized bus. If you (yes, YOU) happen to have a 3D printer and be interested in a little modeling yourself, send me a message. I also need to produce six identical metal borders for the windows as soon as possible, and I will absolutely pay for materials and probably a bit more for your time.

I’m a Survivor (Part 1)

Bucky x Reader

Summary – The reader is more of a scholar/lab rat (highly intelligent, knows something about everything and maybe a bit of a know-it-all). She prefers the shelter Stark Tower offers her rather than joining in on the action whenever there’s a new mission. Fury knows she once got beaten up pretty bad, even ended up in the hospital, and gives her a pass each and every time (the others don’t mind but are a bit disappointed). She has been on guard ever since, ashamed of her scarred body and counting her blessings ‘cause she’s still alive. But when she finds herself all alone in the tower yet again, she decides that something needs to be done and asks Bucky for some lessons in self-defense.

Warnings - Death, torture, and mentions of rape

Notes – The amazing Annelies @hellomissmabel​ gave me the idea for this fic (I used her suggestion for the summary).  I’m super excited to be working with her to create another Bucky x Reader series!  I’m taking this story down a darker path than I’ve done before, so I’m definitely interested in hearing what you guys think!

“Director, Agent Davies and I are approaching the East Wing of the compound,” you whispered into the comm on your wrist as you and your partner cautiously approached the darkened corridor ahead of you.  “Have you and Agent Jefferson been able to run an infrared scan of the area?”

“Agent (Y/L/N),” Fury responded.  “We’re having some trouble getting the infrared to penetrate the walls of the building.  They seem to be reinforced with something that is blocking our scans.  You’re going to have to go in blind.”

“We’re already blind!” you hissed into the comm.  “They cut the power, and we have no infrared.  Do you really want me and Agent Davies to go in alone?”

“I’ve got a team heading your way,” Fury informed you.  “ETA, five minutes.”

“You’re the boss,” you snapped, moving your hand to better grasp your assault rifle as you motioned for your partner to lead the way.

You and Agent Davies quietly crept through the dark, straining to hear any sound that would indicate that you weren’t alone.  So far, you hadn’t heard or seen anything.  This seemed way too easy.

BIGBANG Reactions to You Being Too Short to Reach the Top Shelf

T.O.P:

“IS THAT ONE OF MY CHAIRS?”

You let out a startled gasp as you heard the sudden sound of your boyfriend behind you. Embarrassed and slightly worried about using one of Seunghyun’s prized possession to reach for the plates, you hopped off, ready to apologize. Upon seeing your apologetic and embarrassed face, Seunghyun let out a small sigh. “It’s ok, jagi. I actually think it’s a little adorable that you’ll always need me to help get down the dishes since there is no way in hell I’m letting you stand on one of my babies again.”

Taeyang:

You hopped off the counter with the cookie jar. As you turned around, treasure in hand, you let out a gasp as you saw Taeyang’s frame leaning against the entrance to the kitchen. “O-oh hi Tae!” you stuttered out, hoping he hadn’t seen your mini mission in action. “Hey Y/N. I noticed you struggling with the cookies there,” he chuckled watching you turn a shade of pink. “It’s okay jagi. I would’ve done something but I’m not tall enough myself!”

G-Dragon:

You felt someone lean over you just as you were about to grab the sugar for your coffee. Before you could grab the container you kept it in, the person behind you closed in on it. You could feel the vibrations of his laughter on your back. “You know I had that, right Jiyong?” you huffed, defensive over your height. “Jagi, you know you like it when I press up against you so just appreciate it,” Jiyong whispered in your ear while wrapping his free hand around your waist. “Now come on Y/N, let me make you coffee.”

Daesung:

The shelf was a lot higher than you originally thought. Even sitting on the counter proved to be not quite high enough to reach the fancy bowls. Deciding to try your shot at balancing on your tiptoes on the edge of the ledge, you began to to stand. However, as soon as you began to balance yourself, you lost your footing on the edge and slipped. Just before falling off, you felt a pair of hands grip your back and push you back upright. “I swear jagi, you could’ve just asked me to help you instead of trying to prepare this dinner all by yourself and nearly hurting yourself,” Daesung sighed, obviously concerned over the fact that you could have seriously injured yourself had he not been there. “Sorry Dae. I thought I could reach the top without help but it looks like I’m not tall enough,” you said. “It’s okay jagi, I find your height to be adorable.”

Seungri:

Stretching yourself on your tippy-toes was a futile attempt to reach for a new box of your cereal. Right when you were ready to admit defeat and grab a chair to get it, you felt a strong pair of arms wrap themselves around your waist and a head nuzzle against your neck. “Seungri? What are you doing?” You tried to turn in his grasp but he wouldn’t let you. “Well, you see, I was just minding my own business but then my shortie of a girlfriend here starts to struggle with the simple task of getting down her cereal. So I, being the amazingly awesome boyfriend that I am, will help this small cutie get the food she wants.” 

“Seungri, you’re so fucking lame I can’t.”
