Lance knows that he’s not the best member on the team, he sees all the looks from Shiro and Allura. Yeah he tries his hardest but fighting has never been his thing. Back at home he would wrestle with his siblings but that was the extent of his fighting skills.
On days he would let his mind wander too far he would go to the training deck and try to fight out his anger like Keith does but that never really helped him.
One night he went into the training deck to get some extra practice when an idea came to him. He plugged in his music player into the control system and activated the training bot.
Never before had he fought with such ease. With the music playing he was able to turn it into a dance, a fast paced, dangerous, and absolutely stunning dance.
He trained like that for weeks, his skills steadily improving. But he never told the others. He’s not sure why he felt the need to keep it a secret from the rest of the team, but he did. Maybe he thought they would laugh at him for training that way, maybe he was afraid that wouldn’t let him train that way anymore cuz that’s not how soldiers fight.
Maybe it was both.
It was a day after a particularly hard mission that they found him. The missing went off, things didn’t go as planned and while no one got hurt, the mission was still a failure.
Lance had waited for everyone to go to sleep before he went to the training deck and started from level one. When the others woke up, on the way to the dining room they heard music. Not loud but definitely there. Together they followed the sound to the training deck doors, only for them to be locked. Allura then led the group to the training decks observation room.
They were all in shock to see Lance fighting. Beautiful and deadly. There were training bots scattered all across the deck, and the castle was having a hard time clearing the broken bodies with the rate Lance was dropping them. They watched for a while, totally captivated by the Lance was moving his body. Allura was the first to regain herself and ended the training session. Just before the the console shut off, it displayed the level it had ended on. Level 23.
Jessica, first of all, I love you. Second, what's it like being a part of the first class that was 50% female?
Thank you! The best part is that I think the fact that our class is 50% female simply reflects how far our society has come, and that is a great thing! To us, there really is no difference on whether or not we are female or male, what backgrounds we come from, etc., we are one team, one family, all contributing to the same cause (which is an extraordinary feeling!). I’m definitely very proud and honored to be part of the 21st astronaut class.
Oh my gosh all this Lafluff on your blog has me smiling so much my cheeks hurt it's such a wonderful concept so now may I present to you: Lafluff where Lance likes to go down to the hangars to chat with Blue and while he's there chats with the other lions as well like everything from what he did that day to what he's thinking about and basically just bonding with them all cause they're sorta sentient and just making them all love him to bits and low key sending that feeling through the others
ANON YOU ARE THE BEST THING EVER OMG.
Keith feels it first. He’s in the training room drinking from a bag of water when Red suddendly shoves him a big wave of emotion. It’s warm, soft and it hold a spark of amusment. Keith doesn’t really understand where it come from but it left him smiling, stomach unknoted and it’s easier to breath.
Hunk feels it next, a few days later. He’s used to Yellow sending him random moments of emotions, usually when Hunk’s backing or just playing with an old Altean’s technology, just to keep the Paladin company. This time was different. This time Hunk felt a familiar warm around him, like a side hug, a playful pat on the shoulder, something friendly, brotherly, and so so just….home. Hunk holds to that feeling from the rest of the day.
Then it’s Shiro, roughly a week later. He’s tense, staring at the hologram map of the galaxy they are currently hidding in, when the sudden wave of emotions hits him, almost knocking him over. His bond with Black has grown stronger as the days pass by, and when she reaches out it’s usually because Shiro is almsot at his limit of stress, but this time, he doesn’t feel reprimands for not taking care of himself; he feels a familiar praising, a touch of worry and a steady feeling of kindness and determination. He feels as if someone is having his back, easing his paranoid mind, and then, just then, Shiro can let go of the breath he didn’t even knew he was holding in. He turns off the hologram and leaves the room to joing the rest of the team.
Pidge is last but not least. She’s used to Green’s poking insde her mind, especially when he’s into de-coding a new Galra program, offering her input from time to time. It’s a comforting feeling, but one particular night, when she’s almost at her limit and she’s rubbing her right eye behind her glasses in frustration, brushing away the tears, she feels it. It’s like a blanket, fluffy, soft, warm and it makes her tear up because she feels so protected, right there, right now. She lets out a small gasp and she’s quick to push herself up, running down her hagar because Green is literally tuggin inside her to come and when she arrives, she sees Lance.
Lance, who is cross sitting on the floor in front of her Lion, turning his head from side to side so he can catch every Lion’s eye. His arms are all over the place, happily carrying away his tale. The entire team’s names pass his mouth: fondly, playfully, and so teander.
Pidge can only stare because she hiccups and Lance is quick to turn to her, eyes wide in surprise but he inmediatly opens his arms, the blanket on his shoulder like a cape, and Pidge doesn’t hesitate, not even a tick, before she falls in his arms and hugs the shit out of him.
That night, Pidge has the best sleep since they arrived.
I’m so sorry, I got carried away. I just….hsdkjfhdskjfhsdkjfhsdkj this concept is so so lovely, thank you for sharing it with me!!!!! <33333333333
I talked with a few people and everyone agreed that I could not leave the “accidentally married” prompt alone as it was, nor did I want to. So this one is from Jyn’s perspective upon waking up and her reaction. I’m probably going to end up writing a "the night of" flashback and maybe a reaction or two from the other members of the crew, depending on how I feel. Sometimes, I just want something light and fluffy with a hint of angst and confusion. Enjoy!
The first thing Jyn notices upon waking up is something soft and warm pillowing her head. She buries her face further into it, breathing in the smell of smoke that clings to it and another smell that is incredibly familiar but she can’t name without thinking and she really doesn’t want to think right now. It lulls her back into a brief doze as she hugs whatever it is until her other senses begin to poke and prod at her mind.
Like the fact that her feet and legs are cold and the strange rough yet soft feel of sand burns her bare skin. She furrows her brow, groaning and griping that these feelings won’t let her fall back asleep, and curls in on herself in an attempt to get warm. Why is she so cold? She remembers… Well, she doesn’t really remember a lot from last night, but she remembers being very hot. This is quite unpleasant and a rude way to wake up.
Finally, when she is unable to deal with it any longer and knows it will be impossible to fall back asleep, Jyn opens her bleary eyes and lifts her head. Strands of her hair hang in her face and she can feel just how much of a mess it is, but she doesn’t care. Instead, she takes in the scene: bodies scattered everywhere on the beach, half of them snoring, empty cups and bowls lying tipped over on the ground, the burnt remains of what had been a large bonfire. She vaguely recalls the rituals they’d gone along with while negotiating with the natives of this planet and the celebratory ceremony afterwards, but nothing specific jumps out.
How much had the aliens insisted they drink after each decision? Why had she gone along with it? Only Cassian really had to drink, but as far as she knows, everyone on the team joined in so that he wouldn’t be completely obliterated. They would’ve been fine…had they not continued to drink after. That was all their fault.
Today marks one year since I started watching Supernatural for the first time. I’d purposefully avoided watching it for years because I knew I would be addicted. And I had enough TV addictions to deal with lol.
But on that fateful day, I decided that I wanted to watch something new (WHICH NEVER HAPPENS WITH ME) and I played The Pilot on Netflix.
Never would I have imagine how much it would change my life.
Without all of you, my SPNFamily, I wouldn’t have fought hard to save myself. I wouldn’t have known that Family Don’t End With Blood, and gotten myself out of an abusive home. I wasn’t alone in my struggles. And I was able to open up and be myself. And y’all have accepted and loved me for me. Something I never had outside my boys.
And without Sam Winchester himself, I wouldn’t have the strength to keep going every day.
I relate to Sam a lot. Born into a life he didn’t want. Struggled to feel and be normal. Ran away to achieve normalcy. Dragged back in to his family drama. Becoming an addict, then overcoming his addiction. That’s my early life in a nutshell. But he didn’t quit. He didn’t lie down and wait for death to come. He fought for what he believed was right. Even at the behest of others.
I’ve also come to realize that I relate to Dean too.
There was expectation as the oldest child that was strict with no room for errors. And when errors occurred, harsh punishment followed. So I had to be strong, not show weakness, and I would bury my true feelings and emotions in the form of rebellion, hanging out with the wrong crowd, and teenage alcoholism. But slowly, I realized that it’s okay to feel emotion. It’s okay to feel weak.
Because I am human. And I will let you down.
I dedicate this post to my SPN Family here on Tumblr. And to my Facebook and Twitter SPN Family. I love you guys. Thank you for helping me save myself.
I made a post a while ago about the time duplicates of the TMNT 2012 kids turning into Space Pirates(!!!) and I was thinking about that again so here are some headcanons I’ve come up with so far:
-the original person to suggest it was Raph in a very sarcastic tone because Donnie had gotten arrested for stealing again, and this is the eleventh time they’ve had to break him out of jail why not just make it official already
-and then Mikey in a very not sarcastic manner wouldn’t let the idea go and essentially one by one they all ended up on board with the plan to become Intergalactic Space Pirates
-their original timeline selves had already accumulated plenty of enemies and bounties on their collective heads, might as well roll with the roles they’ve been given.
-Leo was tempted into it because SPACE ANYTHING is always tempting to him.
-also because typically they only steal from ‘bad guys’ and have a sort of Robin Hood thing going on.
-except when Donnie/Casey/Mikey/Raph/April absolutely have to have that one thing and laws be damned.
-Fugitoid was already a fugitive anyways so he’s just going along with things at this point.
-he has six kids now and apparently they all want to be pirates and he won’t disappoint them by saying no.
-Donnie is scary good at manipulating shit on the digital Black Market, and has actually held fake auctions for the ownership his siblings when he gets pissed at them. he only ever lets his brothers get a little kidnapped after they’re sold off. just until he’s got the money, alright?
-if there’s fire or fighting or a combination of the two anywhere in the area they’ve landed for the day it’s probably the direction Casey and Raph have gone.
-April gets a bigger gun than the pea-shooter she’s given by Fugitoid almost immediately, and then proceeds to keep collecting various guns as they go. she’s breaking twelve universal possession laws just by having a quarter of her collection.
-Leo isn’t always sure how they get into the situations they do but he’s basically just resigned to shenanigans and being chased by space police at this point.
-Mikey has caused more intergalactic incidents than one being should be able to feasibly cause, and has the highest bounty on his head.
-his wanted poster is him smiling widely at the camera and giving a peace sign because even though they’re light-years from earth he’s still a weeaboo piece of shit.
-Mikey might have the highest bounty but April has the biggest rep for being fucking terrifying and she loves it.
-Mikey’s bounty is only higher because of the sheer property damage he causes. April just scares everyone she meets into comas. it’s much less messy.
-Casey and Raph have a running tally of who can get into and win more bar fights.
-April is currently winning that tally.
-there are no legal drinking age laws in space and long story short they all got smashed one night and woke up with matching tattoos on their shoulders.
-the nonsense symbol was then assumed to be their flag sign and now they can’t escape being associated with it, even though it was originally just a half-assed drunk scribble courtesy of Mikey and Donnie fighting over a pen.
-it looks cool enough though so they’re rolling with it.
-Space!Donnie and Earth!Donnie eventually figure out how to contact each other and proceed to become each other’s best friend/worst enemy. they either hate each other’s guts or agree on literally everything together and there’s no in between for those moods.
-their conversations typically end with them either storming off and yelling “WHY AM I SUCH AN ASSHOLE?!” or them saying “Why can’t you be more like him?” to their family.
-Leo has way too much fun monologue-ing villain speeches at the ship crews they rob, and maybe kind of practices said monologues in the bathroom mirror before using them.
-Earth!Leo sometimes asks if they can switch places, and Space!Leo always says no.
-the Earth!Kids are maybe really jealous and want in on the Space Pirating shenanigans.
-it ends up being where they spend their vacation time.
-also everyone is gay in some manner because Space Is Gay and they’re in space so they are all gay and there’s no way around that.
