seemed about time

During the days after Here There Be Gerblins, Lup absolutely refuses to be let go of by her brother under any circumstances. However, due to her limited power in this situation, this manifests as the Umbrastaff falling over and rolling in Taako’s direction whenever he tries to set it down. Taako, presently in his Simple Idiot Wizard phase, fails to recognize that this is Not Typical Spellcasting Focus Behavior.

During the boys first night at the Bureau, the Umbrastaff won’t stop falling against the ladder to his bunk no matter how he sets it back up again and eventually, when he reaches down to fix it yet again, it turns and hooks around his wrist not letting him go. His reaction is simply, “Oh hey little buddy, wanna sleep with ol’ Taako do you? Hey I can’t blame you, who wouldn’t!” and pulls it up into bed with him and sleeps with the Umbrastaff like it’s a teddy bear.

It takes days before Lup lets Taako put her down and several weeks before she lets him out of sight when he’s not holding her. She almost panics when they ask for the boys weapons upon boarding the Rockport Limited and was never happier that she made her magic-absorbing superwand an inconspicuous umbrella than she was at that moment.

Everyone else just sort of accepts that Taako now has a magic umbrella that he has to hang on the towel rack when he takes a shower so it doesn’t constantly knock against the door of the bathroom for the entire time he’s in there. The best guess anyone has is there’s some charm on it that tied the Umbrastaff to it’s owner and a bit of that charm transferred over to Taako. (Lucretia secretly wonders if Lup had it charmed to find Taako if she perished, or if she charmed it to return to her and with Lup not present, the Umbrastaff thought Taako was close enough. Either way Lucretia is glad some part of Lup found Taako again after all these years, even if it’s not under the most desireable circumstances, unaware of the true extent to which she is correct.)

Fun fact!! cishet male survivors of abuse are just as deserving of love, comfort, understanding, and recovery as the rest of us. Privilege doesn’t negate trauma.

Voltron + favorite character

asked by anonymous

anonymous asked:

*flies in like a bat out of hell* What about a fusion between all three? Idk if you watch SU but it's totally possible and makes for super powerful beings with extra limbs or senses. (Usually eyes tbh)

Anon said: WHAT IF ALL THREE FUSED TOGETHER?? 8D

a Disaster™

Ok but what if Ransom doesn’t really want to be a doctor.  His family and culture put a lot of pressure on their kids to be doctors and get prestigious jobs, and he wanted his parents to be proud of him so he went into pre-med.

What if he was having a post-game panic attack over molecular biology when a scout from the Maple Leafs asked him if he had a minute to talk.  And the thought of just not going to med school, of just ending his education in two months and not having to study for a test ever again, made him feel so relieved he found Holster afterwards and cried for five minutes.

“I don’t ever want to stop playing hockey,” he says to Holster, who… honestly, was kind of looking forward to not having morning practice for the first time since he was four.

What if Justin Oluransi made his parents the loudest, proudest cheering section in Toronto, screaming with love for their son the NHL player.

i’ve been sitting on this question for a very long time because it was so hard to answer! the voltron team are a very military-organised squad in contrast to the quantic team’s (i assume) more lax, untrained, ragtag style, so it’s been a challenge trying to figure out how to fit them into more organised roles.

  • allegra pilots black lion, which was the hardest choice to make between her and bridgette, but she seems separate enough from the rest of the kids (i.e. the bro duo of claude and allan/the potentially-romantic duo of felix and bri) to command everyone’s respect; as well as reserved, sensible and capable enough to manage a team when working together without argument is essential.

  • felix pilots red lion, a role which prides itself on instinct over skill in its handling of the fastest and most temperamental of the lions. despite being sharp-edged and self-isolated from the rest of the team, felix is highly capable and vital to the group dynamic as well as being a strong second-in-command (although it’s unlikely anyone else will listen to him).

  • claude pilots green lion; translating his shadow powers into its strengths of creativity and stealth. claude is the go-to paladin for creative problem-solving and enemy evasion during battle, making him their strongest team member on the defensive. while he scraps with felix more often than not, their positions in the arms allow for a degree of instability impossible to maintain between any other lions.

  • bridgette pilots blue lion, often considered the heart of voltron for its benevolence. bri is the most emotionally open team member and the friendliest towards new faces - and while she could also make a strong leader in black lion, blue lions allows her space to embrace her softer side.

  • last but not least, allan pilots yellow lion - voltron’s loyal powerhouse. allan is gentle and compassionate among his friends while being a heavy hitter in battle in order to protect them. next to bridgette, allan helps to hold up the rest of the team as the sturdy legs of voltron and seals everyone together. 

i tried to be as creative as possible with these while also avoiding slapping any of the quantic kids in a colour already familiar to them! i hope my choices come across well, please let me know what you think!! ヽ(・ω・ゞ)

We are the Mirrorverse

but it’s like-
the night throbs in my veins sometimes
and i don’t know what to do with this energy?
it isn’t my heart, no, not that, not anything known,
but it flows like blood would and i want to leap out of the window-
i want to meet the stars / i want to tell them that the night
isn’t the darkest place that i’ve been but even when i’m there
somehow starlight still guides me.
