I’m sorry I’ve been so absent recently. Excuses, excuses etc. etc. but basically I’ve had a bazillion work socials, commissions up the wazoo and am severely lacking in sleep. These things combined do not make for good artings.
Have some more fic recs! Knock yourselves out. See if you can spot the thing I said I wasn’t interested in and would probably never read >__> Ahaha ha look how that turned out…
As with any rec list, please pay attention to the tags and warnings <3
all we have to do - 19.5K; klance; Keith gets hurt during a mission, and Lance is not sure how to handle that.
To the Universe and Back with You - 10k (WIP); klance; When Keith took off after the Galra empire fell he left Lance with a broken heart and a whole lot of resentment. Fast forward seven years later and Lance is the only paladin living on Earth, with his cat Peaches for company. It’s not perfect, but he’s happy. That is, until Shiro summons them to form Voltron again…
it’s quite bizarre, and will remain this way - 16.5k; klance; Keith is determined to keep his head down while serving out his community service volunteering at the Rex Alfor Memorial Space Muesum, but one rather loud member of staff won’t leave him alone…
shining like the stars - 139k (WIP); shklance; In a bid to help strengthen team Volron and their lion bonds, Allura takes the paladins on a pilgrimage to face the trials in the paladin temples. Keith unexpectely presenting as an omega rather throws a rather large spanner in the works…
Stormchasing - 18k; klance; Lance never intended to spend his vacation chasing after Keith’s premonitions, but here he is. Keith makes bad decision, Lance makes mistakes, and both of them are stuck together on a space pirate adventure neither of them asked for.
Purple Marks and Bleeding Hearts - 46.5k (WIP); klance;
Lance’s newest job is not what the sniper signed up for when he joined team Voltron. This mark shouldn’t be any different from the other Galra, but he is.
Feel the Bonds - 53.5k; klance; Being a paladin of Voltron is honestly the coolest thing that ever could’ve happened to Lance, but the people who should know probably never will. And despite their fighting, Keith is there for him when Lance is feeling particularly homesick.
“What do you give someone who already has everything?”
Hi so I’ll be gone a few days so in keeping with the holiday season have some more BillDip. I’m sorry I haven’t gotten around to answering or fulfilling some requests but ugh life and school so… yeah? Sarreh?
to me the thing is that we’d predicted this sort of outcome for most of the season, yet it was still probably the most heartbreaking thing I’ve ever seen in my life.
like even from the first scene with the paper towels people have been like “even has some form of mental illness” and we were all like yeah, sure, maybe he does.
then we started believing it, and for a very long time i think we all knew that at some point it would become an “issue”, and I thought we were prepared for it.
I made a prediction about the friday clip, I thought yes, there would be drama and some form of problem (because the week had been too good), and I thought we might get answers/ even telling isak about having a mental illness.
then I saw it was 15 minutes, and whilst I was incredibly excited, my first thought was “no this can’t be good”. and I was right (in terms of emotion, in terms of a story it’s amazing).
at first, I was so incredibly proud of isak messaging his mum (still am) especially signing off with “hugs, isak” because that showed a level of love even though they aren’t close, and it showed he was willing to put aside the issues with them, if she did.
then even is the biggest freaking dork and draws a heart on the window and my heart explodes. (also pointing out how isak still didn’t want to kiss even in public, which I feel was a really good show of him not just miraculously being completely comfortable after just coming out to his family & friends)
then even is just so proud to be able to say isak is his boyfriend and he’s beautiful and he’s his and I actually died. but then we get into the room and first it’s amazing but then even starts just rambling on and you can actually see the look of realisation on isaks face (shout out to tarjei and his amazing acting) when he first starts to get a hint that something isn’t right.
but then I think he chooses to ignore it, and why wouldn’t he? he’s never seen even in this context, and doesn’t know any better, plus they’re having a lovely night and he’s finally with the boy he loves, so he just puts it down to “he’s just having a great time”.
then the “the only way to have something infinitely is to lose it” comment, this is where I was like “no no no I don’t like this, this isn’t good”. I literally had to pause the video and make sure I was okay to continue because I really didn’t like where it was going, I was actually a mess.
once again, even not sleeping yet having so much energy, then we get to the part that started to kill me.
as soon as even walks out that door, isak realises fully what’s going on, and is instantly extremely worried. the moment even isn’t in the corridor I think isak connects the dots completely and is simply terrified.
wandering around the city and even calling sonja he looked so lost, and desperate and worried (again tarjei holy shit). then sonja turns up.
now, up until today, I was holding out hope that sonja was actually a good person, and don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying she’s evil or vindictive, but I don’t think she’s a good person for or with even. I think her “care” has turned into “control”, whether she fully realises it or not, I don’t think it’s healthy for even.
you can see that when isak asks what just happened and sonja answers, he already knows, he just needs it confirmed, and once it’s said out loud it’s real. sonja says stuff that I don’t believe is true (“it’s just some sick idea he has right now”) and some stuff she has no right to say.
I believe sonja got so comfortable in being the one who makes decisions for even and controlling him, that she can’t let it go, to her, this is essential. I don’t think she realises anymore that even is valid, and has his own thoughts and feelings that might not align with hers, and that isak was the one that this came to a head with. even saying “I can feel is growing apart ”(I can’t remember the exact line cause it was like episode 3 but it was along those lines) and “stop monitoring me”, makes me feel that sonja simply forgot how to be caring, and only knows how to control, because to her, that’s how it works.
and I do think even is in love with isak, completely in love with him, and I think isak 100% loves him back. but right now, due to isaks history with people with mental illnesses, i think isak feels broken and lied to, and I think he feels like he only loves this even, and doesn’t know the even with a mental illness, which I suppose is sort of true.
however I believe isak reaching out to his mum today was a sign of him growing (this show never does anything without reason) and also the line of noora “no one sacrifices anything for love in 2016” mean something.
I’d like to believe that he talks to eskild (giving eskild info this time) and possibly jonas, and sees a new side to this.
I’d like him to remember “and I’ll save you right back” because I’m going to just say it, i think even saved him, possibly from himself, or maybe just living his life as someone he’s not, and being miserable. even brought out the best in him, and made him so incredibly and indescribably happy and loved, and I’d like to believe he will save even just the same.
I want him to see that he still loves this even, he just now loves an even without a secret, an even he can care about & for the best way possible, and an even who has completely changed his life.
GUYS GUYS OKAY SO YOU KNOW HOW MAGNETO CAN LEVITATE HIMSELF IN THE AIR I WAS THINKING HOW THE FUCK CAN HE DO THAT HE AINT NO MAGIC FLYER BUT THEN I REALIZE TWO WORDS:
HOMEBOY PROBABLY HAS TO HAVE METAL PLACED UNDER HIS SHOES SO HE CAN FLOAT
CAN YOU IMAGINE JUST HEARING “CLICK CLACK CLICK CLACK” WHEN MAGNETO WALKS BY
You could fight Sora, but why would you want to? He only wants to be your friend. Why are you trying to hurt him? Why are you so mean?
This child has seen enough shit. He doesn't need you to make his life worse. Besides he'll probably just kick your ass. He is a Keyblade Master after all.
DO NOT FIGHT KAIRI. She will kill you. I know she has a pure heart but that will not stop her from jamming that flowery Keyblade down your throat. ESPECIALLY SINCE YOU TRIED TO FIGHT HER TWO BEST FRIENDS. AVOID KAIRI AT ALL COSTS.
Why do you want to fight this precious cinnamon roll? I mean you'll probably win, but why do you want to hurt her? Why?
Fucking fight this asshole duck he'll probably forget to heal you anyways.
I don't care. Fight Goofy. Just understand what you got in to.
I wouldn't fight this kid. He's got an army of powerful beings behind him that can kick your ass for him. Besides he doesn't need your shit, he's got enough problems as it is.
DO NOT APPROACH XION. DO NOT EVEN LOOK XION IN THE EYE. THIS KID ORCHESTRATED THE ENTIRE DOWNFALL OF ORGANIZATION XIII. SHE WILL NOT HESITATE TO KICK YOUR ASS. Besides you probably won't even remember the fight even if you win.
They're basically all the same person. Fight them. They are fucking assholes that ruin children's lives and need to be taken down a peg. Do it. It's not likely you'll win but just fucking do it.
This asshole needs a punch to the face. I mean you'll probably lose, but it'll be fucking great.
This motherfucker uses FLOATING SPEARS OF DEATH. Avoid at ALL COSTS.
Do it. Fight this crusty nerd. I would. Just be careful of his ice attacks, and his giant fucking shield.
No you'll die.
This child lost his parents and now you want to fight him. Alright. You monster.
I mean you won't win but I'd still try. He's kind of as ass to his friends and he needs to know you don't do that. Fight him.
Don't fight the trash can lid dad. He's just trying his best.
FIGHT THIS PUNK WHIMP DO IT DONT LET YOUR DREAMS JUST BE DREAMS JUST D O I T
Don't fight the Ticky Tock Card Shark. Play a game with him. It'll be much more fun, plus he'll critique your strategy when you lose and tell you how to get better. He's a p cool dude.
I don't man know he has a scythe I wouldn't go near him.
Not if you don't want to get shanked by an electrified kunai.
Ansem the Wise/DiZ:
He is a weak old man and not long for this earth. Punch him.
This sloppy child is stuck in an enteral purgatory because he was a such a sloppy child, and you want to fight him? K.
Don't. He is too pure for this world. Don't. Besides he's sleeping. Don't wake him. Shhhhhhhh.
Fight the jealous evil Sora. He's a child but he could still use an ass kicking.
Do not fight her what the hell are you doing she's a fucking Keyblade Master and the fucking Queen of your shit you shitwad she'll kick your fucking ass.
“You are the sappiest person I know,” Zayn’s voice comes out tinny through Liam’s laptop, accent seeming even thicker than normal with the miles between them. He’s glancing down at the buzzing phone sitting in his lap, smile as wide as the Nile river.
“Ah, got my tweet?” Liam asks as nonchalantly as he can, but his grin is just as big. When Zayn only nods, Liam continues in a chuckle, “And really? You’re really going to say I’m the sappiest?” He quirks an eyebrow at the Zayn on screen in front of him. “‘Cause have you ever even talked to yourself, Mr. Right-Next-to-You-Liam?”
Zayn groans, looking away from the camera as he mutters, “Years ago, Li, Years.”
“Well, you know, you haven’t changed a bit,” Liam points out, lips upturning at the giggle that follows.
“Neither have you. 'It’s you.’” He nods to the other boy, saying the last words in a low voice, as if (badly) imitating Liam.
“I love you” is all Liam responds, suddenly serious as his throat thickens with the tears threatening to burst from inside him.
“Love you, too… bro,” Zayn teases, sticking out his tongue as he tags on the last word.
“Shut up,” Liam grins, flushing slightly as he covers his face in his hands.
Zayn only smiles, and there’s a pause. “Thank you, Li.” His words are quieter this time, as if he’s sharing a secret between the two of them.
“No, thank you, Mr. Malik, for making it to your 24th year,” Liam responds happily, bringing his head down as if tipping his imaginary hat.
“And plenty more to come with you, babe,” Zayn murmurs, reminding Liam once more that he’s right–there’s more than enough sappiness between the two of them to go around.
Every single person you know has something in their life and past that is probably worth collapsing to the ground in an uncontrollably sobbing heap over, so be nice and kind to each other and tell good jokes.
