slow him down

anonymous asked:

ok so if the galra truly age very slowly, do you think that gene is present in keith anywhere?? even if it only slows him down by maybe a few years rather than centuries

I think it’s safe to say that Keith carries a fair amount of various alien genes in him, not just Galra. We don’t know much about his past. Personally, I’m leaning toward the Altean/Galran-hybrid-mom theory.

Do the Galra age very slowly because of their Genes, though? If space-time-dilation is a thing in the Voltron universe, their age doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with their DNA! Time passes - to put it simply - “slower” around large gravitational masses. (Occurs when two bodies move relatively to each other.)

I think I will only accept a lion shuffle if it’s literally everyone ends up with a different lion.

Like, oops, Allura was actually TOTALLY FUCKING WRONG about EVERYONE because she had literally just met them 20 minutes ago.

Black - Lance (sure okay why not let’s give it a shot I’m down to clown, develops leadership qualities, this is reminding me of the pirate captain from Stardust for some reason, ‘the heart of the team’, Will listen to everyone and make the right call (eventually))

Yellow - Keith (Really works with his impulsiveness tbh?, The yellow lion makes him slow down and think b/c he can’t just bolt in, Will pull back and make everyone think twice, Sees the Big Picture better than everyone else on the team, No your family/Allura are not more important than the rest of the entire universe guys)

Green - Hunk (nosy, interested in learning, wants to touch EVERYTHING, will steal and read your diary and go through your files, crazy smart and eager to question)

Red - Pidge (I’m gunna BREAK INTO THE GG and SIT AT YOUR COMPUTER AND READ YOUR FILES then SCREAM AT YOU, openly impulsive and quick to temper, often takes the bullheaded approach, Will do her own thing regardless of what others think)

Blue - Shiro (The one that keeps the group together and calm, Moral support and there to listen, Will encourage you and make you feel like you can do anything)

That [election night] show was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my entire life. You couldn’t cut to commercial either. We had a bunch of made-up commercials, but none of them were appropriate once we knew we were playing to an audience of the condemned. My audience was sobbing openly. Who can make jokes to a sobbing audience?


…I’m all for giving him a chance, but don’t give him an inch. Because I believed everything he said, and I remember everything he said, and it’s horrifying. The job changes a man, that’s the cliche of the presidency, but every president tries to achieve what they promised. And you might say there are levers of power in Washington that could possibly slow him down, but two things: One is, they’re cowards. Second is, they tried to stop Trump. Everyone tried to stop Trump. Do not delude yourself. Everyone except the people he’s going to appoint tried to stop him, and they didn’t. He owes them nothing. That’s what scares me. He owes the checks and balances of Washington nothing, because they tried to stop him and they couldn’t. And he’s a vindictive person. So, it’s all going to be fine. Merry Christmas.

Surrounded by smiles but none can lift his lips.

ViVi Magazine January issue - Kyungsoo cuts, part one

Staff: Full of thoughtfulness; he would go around the staff present, asking them to please share in his chocolate. Always open and in a good mood, but refuses to talk (laughs). He can be quite playful too!


Kyungsoo about other members:

1. Who sleeps the most? Jongin. He has a special ability. It’s like if he’s sitting, he’ll be sleeping. 

2. Who eats the most? Baekhyun. Everyone eats well but Baekhyun is building his body lately.

3. The most impatient? Chanyeol. That’s why I have to always ask him slow down. I’d rather be relaxed.

4. The member who burns hottest? Chanyeol. All the members are manly, but Chanyeol is even passionate in his private life. 

5. The member who cries most easily? No one lately. The ones who just don’t cry are Jongdae and myself.

6. Who has the best muscles? Baekhyun. He’s been training very hard lately. I’d rather not.

7. Who is the most attentive? Chen is someone who is always concerned and considerate of others. He has a lot to teach.


Mentions by other members: 

Xiumin: Who has the best muscles? Everyone but D.O. (laughs). Maybe because he isn’t working out right now but he has a cute tummy, like a little kid’s. 

Sehun: Which member is the most organized? D.O. He will often clean up after our messes. It’s in his personality.

Chanyeol: D.O. will sort his apps and worry over details.

Chen: Who is the most attentive? He is very sensitive/detail-oriented and is guaranteed to be looking after others. I am fond.

[Kyungsoo’s voice is…]

Xiumin: Trendy.

Baekhyun: Soft and calming.

Chen: Soft like a cloud.

Suho: Gray because it’s not just deep and warm, but has a clear and young tone too. If it were a food, maybe it’d be ice cream with a sweet topping?

This is Arthur, a double merle Australian Shepherd. Because of his color he is mostly blind and deaf, but it doesn’t slow him down! He loves swimming, hiking, and giving high fives.

Jerome x Reader

Warnings: Reader on medication, Manipulative Jerome, Reader with split personality.


“You really think this is a good idea?” Harvey asked Jim as they watched you through the glass.

“They feed off each other, hopefully taking her away from Jerome will slow him down enough to get a lead on where he is.” Jim muttered as Harvey shook his head, grabbing at his coffee mug.

“Or he’s coming for us to get her back and when they do come back they won’t stop.” Harvey sighed, heading out to his desk.

“That’s why I ordered the trucks.” Jim’s words had Harvey stopping in his tracks, he knew he’d end up getting involved at some point so it might as well be from the start.

“You ordered trucks?” Harvey muttered as he turned to face his partner.

Castiel drowns himself over and over every night and then again every morning. He holds himself under water and breathes in deep so his lungs are filled with the only thing he thinks can kill him now. A flood of warmth washes over him as he embraces the call of the light. There is no pain, no worry, no strife. All he longs for is peace. 

This is dramatic, perhaps. But, after several millennia he is entitled to a bit of self indulgence. 

Dean rolls over, sound asleep, and presses his face into Castiel’s shoulder. Several billion years watching the Earth reach the state of human domination and this is what slows him down and forces him to pay absolute attention. 

He has always been a glorious soldier of god, there can be no doubt. After all, his sin has never been from his service. His sin is Dean. Heaven has declared Dean a distraction from the glory of God’s mission and the true purpose of Heaven. 

That doesn’t make sense. Humans are the mission. They always have been. If God had truly wanted the apocalypse in all its drama and splendor He would have had it years ago at Stull. The creator of Heaven and Earth couldn’t be stopped by a handful of stubborn creations. He has humored them. God wants angels to ascend to a higher state of being and understanding. Their father does want them to have free will. He just hasn’t felt the need to tell them that. 

No matter. Castiel chose years ago. Barely a second within the timeline of his own existence. He can recall every second of his life up to the point that he rescued Dean Winchester from hell. Yet, miraculously, every second thereafter has ticked slower than the ones before. 

Castiel smiles and rubs his knuckles against Dean’s stomach. “I love you.”

Dean’s brow furrows. He can hear Castiel. No smile comes, but Dean moves closer and throws a leg over Castiel’s body. 

“Mm. Love you, too, Cas.” Dean sighs and settles back into deep sleep. 

He dreams of a child’s laugh. Sam’s maybe… or his own not often enough heard. Castiel smiles and pets Dean’s hair, but doesn’t dare disturb such a beautiful dream.

my @tfcsecretsanta gift for @nyxorhemera! its andreil (and a little bit of the foxes) ice skating, i hope you like it!


Group skating, of course, was Dan’s idea. She thought it’d be a fun activity for all the foxes, both a way to let loose and exercise at the same time.

Neil loved the idea. Andrew didn’t.

The drive to the rink consisted of Andrew speeding, Neil looking out the window, and Kevin warning him to slow down before they died. Andrew took slight pleasure in ignoring him and accelerating, and also the grin on Neil’s face as their surroundings whipped by.

The entire fox team met up in front of the building before heading in, and the wait for everyone to come inside was when Andrew decided he was just going to sit on the benches the whole time. It would still end up being more interesting than exy.

It was as he waited for everyone to settle down and figure out their skates that he could tell the teammates who could skate and the ones who couldn’t.

Andrew watched as Kevin, Nicky, Dan and Allison quickly tied on their skates, and along with some new foxes who’s names he couldn’t exactly remember, and mentally added them to the ‘can skate’ list. Aaron, Renee, Matt and two other new foxes, wobbling as they headed to the ice, made the 'can’t skate’ list.

And then, of course, there was Neil.

He sat beside Andrew, confused and squinting down at his feet as he tried to tie the laces on his skates.

“Do you know what you’re doing?” Andrew questioned.

“I’ll figure it out,” Neil said with a grin before hopping off the bench. “You don’t want to come?”

Andrew didn’t dignify the question with an answer as Neil stepped onto the ice.

The second he was there, it became blatantly obvious that Neil could not skate to save his life. Somehow, he was even worse at that than dressing himself. He watched as Neil and Matt pathetically tried to keep each other upright before collapsing in laughter. With a sigh, Andrew stood and walked back to the skate renting area, flatly telling the woman working there his shoe size.

He trudged back to the rink and yanked his skates on before stepping out onto the ice. It had been years since he’d skated, but he remembered the both the feeling and instructions he’d received while skating all those years, so he was able to push himself forward easily.

He contemplated contact for a few seconds before he pushed himself under the arm Neil had outstretched in attempt to stay balanced. Neil startled at Andrew’s sudden appearance, and Andrew had to grab his waist to keep him from falling.

Quick list of just some of the things I love about Rogue One:

  • The cold open. No title, no blast of the theme music, no opening crawl. It really helped to prepare for Krennic swooping in with barely any warning and utterly ripping the Ersos’ lives apart.
  • First introduction to adult Jyn. Just like Rey, no dialogue needed to indicate just how hopeless our hero’s situation is.
  • The world settings. Market places and so many different glorious species and races. Food being cooked, deals being made, life going on under the Empire much as it did under the Republic (which we never really got to see, but you get my point). 
  • Cassian being presented as the epic and earnest freedom fighter, totally clean cut hero whooooo just shot his informant in the back so he didn’t slow him down, what the hell?
  • Jedha and everything about it being so tall and immense. Plus the walled city. Love me some walled cities.
  • Jyn clamming up and defensive under interrogation from the Rebels, but then instantly starting to tease the seven foot tall robot who earlier picked her up by the throat and dumped her on the ground. Or happily trying to converse with the rather strange man chattering about the Force and kyber crystals.
  • The key word being ‘try’. Thanks, Cassian.
  • Moral ambiguity of some parts of the Rebellion. Looking at you, Saw.
  • It’s a thing I’ve never really voiced, but if the Rebel Alliance actually existed in this world, striking from hidden bases, would the major powers and those living in them not end up calling them terrorists?
  • Saw Gerrera breaking my heart.
  • Jyn fighting back the tears at the sight of her daddy. Falling to her knees when the hologram’s gone. Desperate for this chance to see her dad again.
  • The fact that there’s no discussion whatsoever about whether Chirrut and Baze can come along with Cassian’s crew, they just hop into the ship with everyone else and boom True Companions activate.
  • I mean yeah they didn’t really have anywhere else to go, what with the planet’s crust splintering and flying every which way, but it’s still a thing I love.    
  • Likewise Bodhi clicking into the group without any discussion. One of them, one of them!
  • Chirrut gripping his staff and chanting his survival mantra when the flight gets bumpy. (This, is me. Kind of. I’m not really religious anymore but if I’m on a flight I will be wearing my St. Christopher’s medal and muttering the Lord’s Prayer nonstop during takeoff and landing.)
