 "If you’re watching this, you’re probably some kind of sentient life form responding to my distress call – well, it’s not really an official distress call because, well, the hardware for that is kind of crushed, but I’m definitely in distress, so that should probably count for something.“

 The young man on the screen sighs and rubs his face, jerking his hand away with a hiss. He’s bleeding, Derek realises: there’s a gash across his brow and the knuckles of both hands are bruised and bloody, and that’s only what he can make out between the cracks in the glass and the frame of the camera.

In Other Words, Baby, Kiss Me by primroseshows

Stiles has simple goals in life. To successfully complete his secret radar project without getting fired, to get a cottage on the Moon, and to untangle his mess of feelings for Moon Station 3 deputy, Derek Hale. Heck, he’ll even settle for two of the three.

Only Human by Jenetica

"This is just what Derek doesn’t need right now. He has an omnipotent, omniscient being panting after him, while his sister and the rest of Starfleet Command are breathing down his neck, waiting for him to make a mistake. No. He can’t handle this, not right now. ‘Just… no.’”

Stiles is a lovestruck Q, and Derek is the poor schmuck that caught his eye.

“Life,” said the star, “is the ugliest thing in the universe.”

“Oh, I don’t know,” said her planet, twirling to watch the greens of her dress glimmer in the light. “It’s not so bad, once you get used to it.”

“You shouldn’t get used to it,” said the star. “It’s horrible. It takes and takes and takes. All it ever does is take. It’s greedy and desperate and cruel. Nothing else in existence is so ruthlessly gluttonous.”

The planet paused. “Black holes,” she said.

“Black holes can’t help it,” said the star, shrugging off a gauzy veil of plasma. “They are the cores of the greatest stars, ruined and squeezed down as small as they can go. Their darkness is not their fault. It was not intentioned. They are so crushed under their own weight that neither they nor anything else can escape. Black holes are not greedy. They are the most painfully lonely things.”

“Well,” said the planet. The greens of her dress were not looking so lovely now. There was smudge in the blue of her veil. “But life doesn’t intend it, either.”

“Life is nothing but intention,” said the star. “Nothing else fights to survive. Nothing else believes it is owed its existence. All life thinks this. It can’t just die like it’s supposed to. It must steal and scrape and grovel and kill. It’s killing you.”

“I’m fine,” said the planet. “I’m more than just my skin. Someday you’ll kill me.”

“Yes, but that is the way of things,” said the star. “Someday I will die. I will not fight it when it happens. I will not steal the means of my survival from you or from any other star. I take what I was given, I live as I may, and when I have exhausted it, I will die. This is as things should be.”

The planet observed the fires on her skin. She watched the meteoric blooms of heat. She listened to the silence.

“There, you see?” said the star. “It’s all killed itself.”

“Oh,” said the planet. Her skin was fever-hot. She had not felt so warm since she was very young.

“Life,” the star said derisively. “Ugliest thing in the universe.”

You had gotten very close to some of the people on the Farragut and it was hard to leave them. You didn’t realize how much you had missed them until you were forced to sit in a room by yourself, unable to even see. Shaking yourself out of your little pity party, you heard Jim approach. You smiled when you realized that you now recognized his footsteps as well.

how bout some reversed roles? like ellis is a robot and nick is human? c:


Long time no see. I am back and going to try to be more active which may prove to be rather difficult because school has started up again, but I will do my best.

I like the idea of Android!Ellis a lot, I thought it would be funny if he was a a medic robot since he is reckless and… well I mean, he’s got an arm off lol.

I was thinking about the design a lot, and I kind of settled on this because im not very creative, but also because I like the idea of characters having flaws that they can’t really help (if that makes sense). Ellis is a very fragile and faulty type of bot. He is extremely necessary in the world of bots though because he holds plasma which powers the cores of all androids (in my android au anyway haha). It is held in his stomach by a thick, not inflexible container; if this container is broken, it may be lethal if not handled carefully and in a timely matter.

The medicbots contain a copious amount of plasma, and in times of war, they are often scarce due to the fact that a medicbots own plasma is held in that container as well. In dire situations, the medicbot will willingly give up their own plasma to save another bot

I imagine plasma as being kind of like Adam from Bioshock, “Everybody wants it; everybody needs it.” Which is why I decided to give Ellis that glitchy stutter as well; too many scuffles with other bots trying to get his plasma.

This is really convoluted, but I had a lot of fun drawing this.

ALSO: His parts are supposed to be red, but I can’t tell if theyre red or orange, cause I’ve trouble discerning between some colors, so I apologize. I hope you all enjoy anyway. <3

I tried to sleep but I couldn’t stop thinking about my lecturer saying the sun has a magnetic field because it has an iron core so I woke up to look it up because I was 95% sure that was incorrect

Dead Space from the Helm of the Pop Rock by callunavulgari

Comfort’s the hum and vibration of a plasma-pulse F20 core engine in mid-hyperspace drive. Ease is the steady, oxygenated chill from the central air circulation vents on a tight and narrow sweep of the outer rim of the Tramontane galaxy. Reality is the taste of sparkling water and roasted almonds at moon-rise. He catches Derek’s eyes from across the bar and chuckles when the man raises an eyebrow, tapping his watch and holding up nine fingers.

Well, Stiles thinks, raising his glass in a sloppy salute. If he’s going to be stranded on a white-zoned planet with a penchant for bad music and the walking dead, at least he’s got a pretty face to look at.

Stiles stops in front of the how-to books and mutters under his breath, “DIY Plumbing? Resume Writing? Come on, where’s the stuff this town actually needs: Druids and You; Protective Circles for Dummies; How to Face a Coven and Still Graduate on Time?”

Listening discreetly at the front of the shop, Derek nearly knocks over a display rack.

“Even a flamethrower assembly guide. That might work.”

They rolled through the darkness until Derek’s eyes gave up trying to pierce through it and he let himself float, nothing but summer breeze and Stiles and his heart in his throat. It was the freest he’d ever felt.

He turned to tell Stiles, who lurched over the console and kissed him.

“No, I’m not asexual, Stiles,” Derek said shortly.

The teen’s heart sank in his chest, his palms going clammy and his neck prickling with the familiar feeling of rejection.

“So then it’s,” Stiles swallowed, throat clogging, unable to give voice to the facts he would much rather ignore. The silence grew between them, growing tense the longer it was left. For the first time in years, Stiles couldn’t speak. The weight of inadequacy held down his typical stream of useless banter. What does one say in this sort of situation? ‘I’m sorry you don’t find me attractive?’

He and Stiles just didn’t drift in the same orbit these days. Derek could probably count with two hands the number of times he’s seen the younger man in the past four years. And half of those times Stiles hadn’t even seen him back.

And no, he hadn’t really noticed the absence.

How Obi-Wan changed thanks to Anakin Skywalker

Obi-Wan Kenobi before he knew Anakin Skywalker:

 Obi-Wan would see the boy and Jar Jar in the same light - useless burdens, pointless projects, unnecessary distractions. Obi-Wan was grounded in the need to focus on the larger picture, on the unifying Force. He lacked Qui-Gon’s intuitive nature. He lacked his teacher’s compassion for and interest in all living things. He did not see the same things Qui-Gon saw.

Obi-Wan Kenobi years later:

He sometimes dreams of when he was a Padawan in fact as well as feeling; he dreams that his own Master, Qui-Gon Jinn, did not die at the plasma-fueled generator core in Theed. He dreams that his Master’s wise guiding hand is still with him. But Qui-Gon’s death is an old pain, one with which he long ago came to terms.

A Jedi does not cling to the past.

And Obi-Wan Kenobi knows, too, that to have lived his life without being Master to Anakin Skywalker would have left him a different man. A lesser man.

Anakin has taught him so much.

Obi-Wan sees so much of Qui-Gon in Anakin that sometimes it hurts his heart; at the very least, Anakin mirrors Qui-Gon’s flair for the dramatic, and his casual disregard for rules. Training Anakin - and fighting beside him, all these years - has unlocked something inside Obi-Wan. It’s as though Anakin has rubbed off on him a bit, and has loosened that clenched-jaw insistence on absolute correctness that Qui-Gon always said was his greatest flaw.

Obi-Wan Kenobi has learned to relax.

He smiles now, and sometimes even jokes, and has become known for the wisdom gentle humor can provide. Though he does not know it, his relationship with Anakin has molded him into the great Jedi Qui-Gon always said he might someday be.


The Sun: Crash Course Astronomy #10 By CrashCourse

Phil takes us for a closer (eye safe!) look at the two-octillion ton star that rules our solar system. We look at the sun’s core, plasma, magnetic fields, sunspots, solar flares, coronal mass ejections, and what all of that means for our planet.

Watching the Grass Grow

What do you do once you’ve saved the world? When the last kaiju fell and the Mediterranean portal was closed, the new heroes of England – Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Donny Graham, Leslie Korin, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik – were barely more than children. For Styles and Payne, it was an open door to the military career of the century; for Edwards and Nelson, a springboard into tenured positions at world-renowned universities. For Graham, it was a phase he’d leave behind, and for Korin it was an introduction into a world of debauchery that he would grow to loathe. For the now-vanished Tomlinson, it must have been too much.

For the notoriously reclusive Malik, it was a proving ground and a prison all in one. He is not the same boy as before it began, nor the same man as when it was finally done.

Some part of him is still lost in the drift.

The History of Sylvia

So, out of the main four/five if you count Dom/six if you count Awesome, Sylvia’s the one we know the most about backstory-wise. In fact, we pretty much know her entire history at this point:

  • She was born in the galaxy right next to the one she’s currently traveling in. She’s the youngest of the four siblings, and at some point her father passed away. Also, in ‘The Stray’, she said that she had a good job scraping grazbits out of plasma cores when she was Lil’ Bits’ size. Since we don’t really know what Zbornaks look like as they grow up, lets just assume Syl had this as a part time job when she was anywhere from about 9 to 15 years old (about the age where kids on Earth can get newspaper routes). This was probably how she earned her money as a kid instead of just getting an allowance.
  • Sometime after she graduated high school (see the graduation cap she has in her bedroom in ‘The Family Reunion’) she ran away from home in search of adventure and/or because life on her home planet was too hard.
  • She eventually met Ryder and the two became partners in crime, robbing people and stealing stuff as well as having unsavory adventures and being ner-do-wells. Eventually though, an adventure went south and Ryder fell into a black hole (or it at least seemed like he fell into a black hole) and Sylvia went solo
  • Either before, during or after her time with Ryder, Sylvia competed in the Galactic Conjunction 6000, hoping to win it. Unfortunately, she lost multiple times because of her ‘time bomb’ mode and eventually gave up on ever winning it
  • She soon became a bounty hunter, still going on adventures but now focusing on just helping herself and doing whatever it took to survive. She also considered herself a ‘bad guy’. This is when she met Wander - only seeing him as a bounty and a reward at first, as well as accidentally giving him his name in this galaxy, ‘Wander’ 
  • Eventually, Wander helped her become a better, less selfish person. The two formed a strong connection, becoming partners, best friends and practically family. Sylvia also accomplished her dream of winning the Galactic Conjunction 6000, got some closure with Ryder (realizing she was much better off without him) and reconciled with her family

Looks like our favorite Zbornak has had one heck of a life! ^v^
