Is any of it real? I mean, look at this. Look at it! A world built on fantasy. Synthetic emotions in the form of pills. Psychological warfare in the form of advertising. Mind-altering chemicals in the form of… food! Brainwashing seminars in the form of media. Controlled isolated bubbles in the form of social networks. Real? You want to talk about reality? We haven’t lived in anything remotely close to it since the turn of the century. We turned it off, took out the batteries, snacked on a bag of GMOs while we tossed the remnants in the ever-expanding dumpster of the human condition. We live in branded houses trademarked by corporations built on bipolar numbers jumping up and down on digital displays, hypnotizing us into the biggest slumber mankind has ever seen. You have to dig pretty deep, kiddo, before you can find anything real. We live in a kingdom of bullshit. A kingdom you’ve lived in for far too long. So don’t tell me about not being real. I’m no less real than the fucking beef patty in your Big Mac.
Now we have pissed off Vulnerable Taylor and she’s had enough.
Hooded Taylor moves forward to battle once again. This was kind of when I was like “Why is old Taylor fighting this new Taylor? Why is she trapped by herself?”
They move towards each other.
Their hands connect again.
But this time, Vulnerable Taylor uses her most powerful asset. Her voice.
And we see Hooded Taylor being destroyed, but underneath, its a robot being torn apart.
and you realize that it wasn’t really Taylor at all. At least, the version that she was being represented as wasn’t her. It was a robot that was controlled by an outer source which, in Taylor’s case, is the media.
Robot Taylor is blown away and destroyed and now Vulnerable, real Taylor is slowly climbing her way to the top. Notice how in the video, as she’s climbing, the lyrics in the background are “So I take my time”, meaning that she’s going at her own pace, doing it the way she wants to do it, and not letting anyone control or trap her anymore.
It flashes back to Robot Taylor and you see the line “They’re burning all the witches” which I believe is symbolizing how the media, who loved her and made her into this robot, destroyed her piece by piece after putting her on a pedestal and made her out to be something she never was in the first place.
Then it flashes back to Real Taylor and the song ends on her face, crying out of happiness that she finally freed herself, and asking us, her true friends, if we’re ready for the real Taylor Swift.
Dromedaries fill an interesting role in the battlefield. These gigantic drones were developed to be highly mobile artillery platforms capable of traversing incredibly tough terrain and carry some of the biggest weapon systems to the most remote locations on the planet. One of the most exotic configurations is the back-mounted weather gun. This system is a weather manipulation suite that allows Dromedaries to change weather patterns and create sudden violent atmospheric events out of nowhere. Weather control would guarantee absolute supremacy of land and sky, however this would at times backfire and hamper all sides involved in a conflict. Lightning has a tendency to take the path of least resistance whether friend or foe.

things that 100% definitely happened after the end of call me beep me u can pry these headcanons from my cold dead hands
(call me beep me is an incredible fic by @gajeelredfox that i can’t link to rn bc i’m on mobile but the final update was posted tonight and i’m emo so have this)
-when they go trick or treating, the kids fall in love with keith instantly and are constantly chattering at him and tugging at his arms to show him things. by the end of the night keith is carrying a sleeping child home and lance’s heart is suffering.
-lance and hunk get to celebrate pidges 16th birthday! lance gets pidge a remote control robot car. (“get it? because its like the cliche thing to get a car on ur 16th birthday, but u like robots!” “yes i get it lance thank u.”)
-together, matt and lance make allura and shiro’s life a living hell. they can’t even look at each other without hearing exaggerating kissy noises.
-lance gradually helps keith and muffin warm up to each other and after a while they’re best friends. sometimes she’ll even lick his hand. shiro is pissed. (“i’ve been trying to get them to get along for years!!! and then this little shit comes along and within a couple of months she’s sitting on his lap!!! wtf!)
i like how Thomas gave us a nice fluffy video centering around Virgil becoming comfortable with himself and being accepted as part of the family after his angst and then BAM fucking rips our hearts out once again. Patton feels invalidated, and is hiding his pain. Roman is even more of a dramatic mess. Virgil is trying his best, but damn it’s hard. Thomas is just…. sad. and Logan???? oh god, Logan. no one listened to him. no one cared that he & Virgil weren’t doing well in that moment. he tried to keep things under control but why would anyone listen to the cold, calculated, logical, arrogant, controlling, emotionless robot?
i wanna write fluff now. to hell with angst. im sad.
