anonymous asked:

How do you think Lotor and lance knew each other. What was their first interaction???

There’s such great art out there for their possible first meeting, but I honestly have had an idea that I haven’t seen yet, so here:

I think canonly, they’d meet in battle and Lotor would be a worthy opponent to Voltron, leaving their ship insanely damaged after their first fight.

But uh, since I’m lancelot trash, here are my fan thoughts on what could happen after that under the cut (^_^):

So lemme get this straight. Clarke has all these reasons for putting people on the list and for leaving them out. Her reasoning for Harper not being on the list is because there’s the SLIGHTEST possibility that she might inherit a genetic illness and wasting resources on her is just too much. That is literally enough to keep someone off. Harper is her friend, and yet it’s not enough. Clarke also picks a young female guard over a male one because logically they’re the ones that will have children and continue their population. These are Clarke’s strict standards and reasoning.

NOW INSERT ARK MAN QUESTIONING BELLAMY BLAKE. Clarke’s thoughts automatically do not go to why he should be on the list! She does not think about how great of a leader he is or how resourceful he would be. BECAUSE THAT’S NOT WHY CLARKE PUT HIM ON THE LIST. She literally thinks she can’t defend herself without sounding “self serving.” WHY?? Because she wrote down Bellamy’s name FOR HER. Not for the others, not so they could survive. Clarke wanted Bellamy to LIVE. She didn’t think about what he could or couldn’t do for their people. She wrote his name down because she knew she NEEDED HIM AND WANTED HIM THERE AND THAT’S THE TEA. 🍵🐸

Short Story

A famous writer was in his study room. He picked up his pen and started writing :

**Last year, I had a surgery and my gall bladder was removed. I had to stay stuck to the bed due to this surgery for a long time.

**The same year I reached the age of 60 years and had to give up my favourite job. I had spent 30 years of my life in this publishing company.

**The same year I experienced the sorrow of the death of my father.

**And in the same year my son failed in his medical exam because he had a car accident. He had to stay in bed at hospital with the cast on for several days. The destruction of car was another loss.

At the end he wrote: Alas! It was such bad year !!

When the writer’s wife entered the room, she found her husband looking sad & lost in his thoughts. From behind his back she read what was written on the paper. She left the room silently and came back with another paper and placed it on side of her husband’s writing.

When the writer saw this paper, he found his name written on it with following lines :

**Last year I finally got rid of my gall bladder due to which I had spent years in pain….

**I turned 60 with sound health and got retired from my job. Now I can utilize my time to write something better with more focus and peace…..

**The same year my father, at the age of 95, without depending on anyone or without any critical condition met his Creator…..

**The same year, God blessed my son with a new life. My car was destroyed but my son stayed alive without getting any disability……

At the end she wrote:

This year was an immense blessing of God and it passed well !!!

The writer was indeed happy and amazed at such beautiful and encouraging interpretation of the happenings in his life in that year !!!

Moral : In daily lives we must see that its not happiness that makes us grateful but grate-fulness that makes us happy.

Okay, but did anybody else notice this

Spoilers for The Creeping Shadow ahead.

So one of the most brilliant parts of “The Creeping Shadow” was Quill Kipps receiving the Orpheus Society’s ‘prototype’ goggles. And as we know, he was (adorkably) rather excited upon finding out they actually worked and used every spare moment he could to see the spirits lurking around Aldbury Castle.

So, did anyone notice that after Steve Rotwell’s visit, in the next chapter when Kipp’s is describing the ghosts he was seeing, he pointed out one haunting that I thought was particularly interesting.

‘And there!’ Kipps rotated, squinting through the goggles. ‘Two cloaked figures on the green. They’re standing close together, hoods down huddled like they’re sheltering from the cold. Ghost-fog’s rising from their capes. Now they’re breaking into a run…..They’re gone!….’

Upon first reading this, the capes he described brought to mind Lockwood’s parents’ Spirit Capes. Later however, when Lucy and Lockwood are, unknowingly, on the Other Side and begin to discover they haven’t made it back to the human world, their actions begin to mirror what Kipps addressed earlier.

‘As one we began to run. We pressed close together, hoods low over our faces against the cold. We cut across the green, boots thrumming on the hollow, frozen earth. Smoke poured from our icy capes, extending behind us like a comet’s tail.’

The sheltering from the cold, the smoking of the capes and the running across the green all match with Kipp’s earlier sighting!

As we know in the Lockwood and Co. universe, and as recently reinforced in “The Creeping Shadow”, the Talent that the children possess actually allows them to, essentially, enter the parallel land of the dead. When they utilise these gifts they connect with the world of spirits, however this travelling is less immersive and dangerous compared to Lucy and Lockwood’s accidental arrival through the Iron Chain. All of this is told to Lucy by the skull.

‘You sense the other world all the time – you’ve always had glimpses of it…’

We’ve also addressed in “The Hollow Boy” George’s ‘time sickness’ theory and his hypothesising and affirmation of Lucy’s question at the end of the third book, that yes, it is possible for ghosts to show both past, present and future. This reiterates the idea that time, for the children using Talents and the spirits that are haunting them, is circular.

‘They’re fixed in a particular place, but able to roam back and forwards across the years. If you follow that argument, why couldn’t they make predictions? Why shouldn’t they see things we don’t?’

 So yeah, I definitely think Kipps had a prophetic sighting of what was going to happen to Lucy and Lockwood hours before they actually ventured into the ‘place of blood’ or Rotwell facility and then later on with the Iron Chain to the Other Side.

Anyone else notice this?

p.s after lurking the Lockwood and Co. tags for like 3 years, I have finally decided to make a Tumblr account to share stuff like this and be involved with the fandom before the last book comes out, so hi.
