ship crash

i’m re-watching season one and honestly. the fact that keith had no clue shiro was in that crashed space ship makes everything about the fact that he ends up rescuing shiro from evil garrison scientists so frickin funny, lmao. i can’t believe this dude, lance is so right. keith doesn’t even have to try half the time to be successful. like, the boy’s only guardian goes to pluto and never comes back, so keith acts out in anger and gets his ass expelled from the garrison. then he just starts living alone in the middle of the goddamn desert, where he discovers some ancient prophecy about some alien something-or-other crash landing in said desert. and he’s like “seems legit" and so he sets up some explosives (which he got from ??? who knows where) and waits for the prophesied alien ship to crash land. then he blows up the explosives he set to distract the garrison guards, gets on a (most likely stolen from the garrison) hoverbike wearing a cropped red and white jacket, black jeggings, go-go boots, and a bandana to cover the bottom of his face, strolls into the garrison’s lab and knocks out everyone on sight with his bare fists. JUST out of curiosity to see what was in that alien ship. and it’s only after aaall of that that he looks at what they found, sees it’s shiro, and is like “oh word? been looking for this guy” i’m. i just.

i’m sorry but the phrase ‘among their shared interests’ summons nothing in my mind but a vision of rey getting on some GFFA dating app and seeing ‘99% match with kylo ren’ and her ensuing indignant shriek echoing for miles and sending the nearest flock of porgs scattering

Crashed landed on Earth and all I got was this rad shirt from the back of Coran’s minivan.

Okay, Hear Me Out

We’ve all seen this shit ‘ere where Lotor like smooth talks Lance “We’ll be powerful, your friends dont need you, come to the dark side, etc”

And so, they’re on a mission, and Lotor talks to Sweet BoyTM and Lance pulls an Anakin Skywalker on his pals. And so he and Lotor bond, and he becomes a trusted right hand man to the prince.

Meanwhile the others feel totes betrayed, and they blame themselves, but they also get angry at Lance because he turned on them.

And they meet him on the battlefield, and they ask him to come back, ask him why he would do this to them. He doesn’t answer, just steps behind Lotor slightly, head bowed. There’s a bruise on his face, they think, and he looks thinner than normal, but he wont look at them, so they don’t know what to say.

Time passes, and they learn to function without him. Their missions don’t go as smoothly, and they get injured far more frequently, and they realize how much they needed Lance. But they carry on.

And they prepare for their final battle, battlefield littered with different species, everyone that the Galra had victimized rising up. Allura, who took the place as the blue pilot, feels Lance’s loss more than ever.

The battle begins. They fight hard. Lives are lost, so many lives. Lotor is has grown so much stronger, so much more ruthless, more prepared than Zarkon ever was. The galra army is bearing down on them, closing in for the kill.

Shiro and Pidge are unconscious. Allura went missing among the soldiers. Keith is injured, Hunk is trying to protect them. The castle, Coran, has gone silent. The end is near, they are going to die. The Galra are going to win.

They see the ion cannons charging, hear the hum that signals their firing squad. They see the lights as they prepare to fire.

And then it all shuts down.

The purple lights that represented their fear go out. The Galra ships crash to the surface of the moon that they were fighting on. The mother ship that had ordered their massacre settled to the ground, slowly opening.

Two figures stepped out. Clearly visible, was Lotor, a knife to his throat. The second, who held the knife, was shorter, and shielded from view.

Hunk and Keith watched the slow, long march Lotor and his captor took towards them. Hunk raised his weapon, but Keith weakly put a hand on his arm. “Wait.” His voice was the only sound in the otherwise deafening silence.

As the two neared, Keith recognized the messy brown hair, the cocky grin that never seemed to leave.

“Lance,” he breathed.

“What?!” Hunk asked.

“Look. It’s Lance.”

Hunk thought Keith was delirious with pain, but as the two approached, he too recognized hthe blue lion’s true pilot.

Lotor was forced to his knees several feet away from them, Keith’s knife still at his throat. Lance smiled tiredly at them. “Sorry I took so long. I cant read Galra,” he said sheepishly.

The Signs as Mermaids

Aries:Born in an underwater volcano, their scales are made of freshly formed stone, their heated bodies glowing a brilliant red and orange. The fastest swimmers, and some say the oldest lineage of mer. They have no natural enemy, as nothing can bare the heat of its touch. When too many gather in one place, the water may boil and kill any living creature too close.
Taurus:Guardians of the strait, their bodies decorated with tribal tattoos and scars. Some bare spears and brilliant gold armor, others wielding nets and dawning decorative gems and shells. The strongest of the mer, no man has ever passed their lands to learn their secrets.
Gemini:When the sky over the sea turns black and the storms take ships by surprise, these mer rise. The tricksters and shapeshifters, they thrive in the chaos. They board the confused ship, throwing over and assuming the forms of shipmates. From there they slowly overthrow from the inside, until they can crash the ship itself into to sea for the mer to reap their rewards.
Cancer:The rarest and most beautiful of the mer. Hiding in springs and rivers nestled deep in the mountains, they live their lives as one with nature. They teach the birds their songs, and bring fish for the bear and deer. They help the beavers build their dams and show lost turtles the way. On the full moon they must hide, for man seeks them for their own selfish gain.
Leo:These mer are known for their hunting prowess. Living in saltwater and decorated in bright vivid greens, blues and purples, they dominate entire lagoons and coasts. When they are full from the hunt, they lay their bodies out on the rocks and bathe in the sun. By nightfall, they are glowing and can light up the murkiest parts of the water to find their prey.
Virgo:In unsuspecting ponds across the world, a fisherman may meet his brutal end at the hands of these mer. Rich brown, thin and boney, their bodies are perfect creating elaborate underground tunnels and rooms. They eat their prey, and take their treasures back to their secret lairs. Here they trade and barter with one another in one large room. Lore says this is the world’s oldest market place. Their unspoken diplomacy is unexplained.
Libra:Living by a tall sharp cliff nested full of harpies, these mer have developed a symbiotic relationship. Storms bring ships off the sea, where the harpies kill the crews leaving the ships to crash into the rocks and sinking. These mer seize this chance and collect every jewel and gold they can find. They construct elaborate jewelry, crowns, spears, and more. Once a year they gift beautiful pendants to their partners in the sky.
Scorpio:Baring a striking resemblance to a shark with long pointed fins and sharp sandpaper like skin, this mer lurks in dark lagoons and swamps. They have a reputation as ‘evil’ and were once almost hunted into extinction. Ever since they have lived solitary lives in the waters man dare not tread. In all reality, they are herbivores, and pose no threat to man or beast. Contrary, they will do anything they can to save a lost or wounded soul.
Sagittarius:Every year thousands of humans gather to watch the mass migration of mer up the rivers of South America. Their scales are a radiant Grey that reflects the rainbow in the light. The light show that they create as they jump hundreds of feet to scale waterfalls is an equal match to the aurora borialis. Once they reach their goal, they find their mates for the first time, hand in hand one week later they dive off the falls back into the sea.
Capricorn:Deep in a trench lies a civilization of the most technologically advanced mer to ever live. While man was discovering fire, they were cresting technology to leave the ocean and fly through the skies in water filled disc ships. They have no need to leave, they as a race have reached a point of enlightenment. Fitting for their gold scales and glowing white eyes. Sightings of these mer are often equated with meeting a God.
Aquarius:Sewer mer are the most unique of the species. They have no eyes, instead they navigate with echo location making clicking noises. Their skin can blend into its surroundings, so they can catch humans unsuspectingly passing by. As evolution has taken its course, they have gained an immunity to disease, poison, and a skin impenetrable by most mortal means. They will not always live in the dark and dank, the future will be theirs, and man will fall to their power. All in due time.
Pisces:The most well known mer are the oasis born. Why? Long ago, a prince found himself lost in the desert, he and his two men pulling a giant box of gold. With their mortality in front of them, an oasis appeared on the horizon as if a gift from the heavens. Perched on a rock in the very center, braiding her hair and humming to herself sat the most beautiful half woman half fish. This was the first time one of his people had seen any mer. He asked her to come back with him, pouring all his gold into the oasis and filling it with water so she could make the journey home with her guidance. She agreed. He died the first night they were wed, and so did his father both of a mysterious disease. She ruled the land with a fair but iron fist for 146 years until she once day dissappeared, some say to return to her gold filled oasis.

Rocket: “What kind of a pair are we?”

Yondu: “The kind that’s about to fight a planet I reckon.”

Rocket: “Alright, okay, good that’s…wait, fight a what?”

Quick analysis of something that hit me like a punch to the gut right now:

This, this dialogue above, this single moment, is the very first time in the course of the two movies that Yondu is being absolutely honest about his intentions. Furthermore, he is being honest about the fact that he is about to do something absolutely suicidal because of something selfless, because of love and care, and not because it will bring him money or power.

Up until then, Yondu always had a rational explanation – speak, an excuse – why he would do something he would gain nothing from.

Keeping Peter as a child because he was useful as a thief.

Putting a bounty on Peter that explicitly states that Peter should be brought alive to him, even after the boy very clearly had betrayed him and stolen the Orb, Yondu explained by saying that he would kill Peter himself to set a warning example.

Not killing Peter after he got his hands on him, Yondu explained with the fact that Peter had come up with a plan that would get him the lost Orb back.

That also led to him ordering the Ravagers to keep Ronan away from Xandar, resulting in him actually protecting Xandar and the Nova Corpse, which probably was and is a crazy thing to think about, both for the Ravagers and the Novas.

Not getting angry when Peter once again tricked him and gave him a troll doll instead of the Orb, Yondu excused to himself (and probably to his men, too) by saying that the Orb would have been too dangerous, anyway.

Not catching and killing Peter and the Guardians in the second movie, Yondu excused by saying that they would have the whole Nova Corpse after them if they did that, and that would have just been stupid.

Yondu always, always tried to explain away rationally why he showed mercy, or helped others. Also when it came to Peter - especially when it came to Peter. He always had quip on the tip of his tongue, a snarl or insult, a “That’s-a-completely-logical-thing-to-do!”-explanation.

But this one time? When facing Rocket, someone similar to him, and after having lost everything and everyone except Kraglin, Groot, Rocket and a tiny part of his ship?

That’s the one and only time Yondu doesn’t give a damn if he’s being honest about his feelings here. Because Peter is in danger, and he needs Rocket to understand that Rocket, too, very much cares about Peter just like Yondu does (remember “You can fool yourself and everyone else, but you can’t fool me. I know who you are.”).

Here, finally, Yondu speaks up loud and clear and honestly. He is basically saying, “Fuck this, I don’t care who hears, I don’t care if it’s a god standing in my fucking way – this jackass has my boy and you better get ready to me taking on the whole fucking galaxy if need be, because I’m getting Peter back. You with me?”

He is (1) being honest about his intentions and (2) actually making Rocket understand that Rocket feels exactly the same as Yondu, and he needs him to understand that.

The one time he has lost nearly everything and he is very close to losing Peter, too, Yondu is ready to be completely honest.

Or in other words - Yondu is freaking ready to wage war in order to get Peter back. No more secrets, no more excuses - here goes nothing.

And it’s all for Peter’s sake.

And I think that’s a beautiful thing.

*sweats furiously* okay I know that there’s an event for this but I can’t wait 2-3 months so here’s a Josuyasu fusion.

I kind of imagine that there was some incident that separated the two boys from Ignis and Gladio. An imperial ship crashed and Noct and Prom ended up being thrown off the edge of steep incline. With the wreckage Gladio and Ignis can’t get around to them so they call out.

I love that trope where one character ends up unconscious but it is the character who is still conscious that is the one who’s the worst hurt.

“Noctis? Prompto? Can you hear us?”

“Y-yeah Gladdy,  Noct is out cold.”

“Are you hurt Prompto?” Prompto looks down at his torn shirt where an injury runs from his ribs and down his side.

“I’m okay…”

This isn't a hc but...favorite funny moments from voltron? It would make my day :)

  • shiro dabbing:
  • hunk trying to form voltron by barreling into Keith’s lion and yelling COMBINE
  • honestly one of my favorite scenes that made me laugh is when hunk tries to be the head. because when they first formed voltron he yelled with the utmost sincerity “I’M A LEG” and then when you look at that scene……they all just sat there in their lions all stacked and waited while hunk flew to the top and sat on everyone and no one said ANYTHING fkgkwekflj and hunk’s just like……what do you mean i can’t be the head?
  • Shiro in 100% seriousness trying to form voltron by stacking up like a cheerleader pyramid and in pure sincere concentration: “I’ll form the head”
  • Coran trying to time the team’s response to the emergency drill using a meat thermometer
  • this entire exchange:
  • when they go to the arusian village and 
  • THEY’RE ALREADY ABOUT TO SACRIFICE THIS DUDE AND THE DUDE IS JUST LIKE :|
  • Pidge: also, I sweat a lot. I mean in general. Unrelated to the peanuts.
  • this collection of lance frames
  • Coran literally breaking his spine trying to lift the Balmera crystal
  • [sarcastic Keith voice] Winning what? The intergalactic time-measuring competition?
  • Coran attempting to spoonfeed Shiro like a baby
  • Keith honestly considering the most important event during the sendak incident to be him cradling Lance in his arms, so much so that his voice cracks in the way angsty teen voices do when they’re whining
  • Keith getting revenge on Lance for not remembering their bonding moment by pretending he couldn’t hear Lance over the comms. that was honestly rlly cute
  • [Lance voice] nana nana boo boo!!!
  • [hunk imitating allura]: oh LONCE he looks so fine im all atwitter
  • [matt voice] Don’t lie. I know you love those peas dad

Also, in case you haven’t already I highly recommend watching scenes from the original Voltron, it’s golden and had me rolling on the floor.
