Allura: I don’t get it, you guys call him your father as a joke all the time? Keith: That’s what I said!
when I get a hand in it, every pairing is the shitpost couple. Alien confusion over those dumb earth-things is 👌 (THIS IS VERY MUCH ALMOST COPIED FROM A HOMESTUCK COMIC I SAW YEARS AGO but I can not track down the original tumblr post? If someone got a link so I can credit that would be great)
1. Get a 12-book series about the Ancestors (including the Handmaid’s story, detailed full-page illustrations in more than half of the chapters, and lots of the heavier themes from the comic).
2. Read a full, “5”-act release of Hivebent on MSPA (in which we get tons of canon interactions and lots of epic battle scenes).
3. Play 6 more flashes of the Dancestors (in which everyone interacts with everyone at least twice, we get full characterization of everyone, there are canon titles for the Beforan ancestors, and we learn exactly what happened to Mituna).
Rose comes out as trans. She has done her research, mostly unsupervised on Mom Lalonde’s computer, before she had her own. She’s nervous, and afraid, and crying by the time she works up the courage to admit it, and she does everything she can to assure Mom that this is not part of their passive-aggressive war against one another.
For perhaps the first time Rose can ever remember, Mom stops, and gently leads her over to the couch, and just shares a tender moment with her daughter, comforting her until she stops crying, assuring her that everything is going to be okay and that she thinks no less of her and will always support her.
Rose wakes up a few days later and, leaving her room, finds a large, hastily-wrapped box full of skirts and blouses and makeup and babydoll shirts, along with a rambling note about how proud Mom is of her. At the bottom of the box, Rose finds an assortment of headbands. For once in her life, she admits to herself that her mother does really care about her, and that maybe all of the things she does aren’t just ironic gestures, and were truly just her way of being a good mother to her child.
