so i guess i ship them now

It’s time for today’s Hiveswap development team interview!

Hey there folks! We’re back with our next Hiveswap developer interview, right on schedule. This week we’re chatting with our animation director Angela Sham, who – as some of you may already be aware – was already creatively contributing to the Homestuck universe before she started working on Hiveswap. So let’s jump right in!

Introduce yourself to the fans! What is your specific role on the Hiveswap team?

Hullo!! My name’s Angela and I’m the animation director on Hiveswap. I’m responsible for overseeing the development of sprites, cutscenes, and basically anything that moves. Together with our lead animator Adrienne, I help to make the pictures go. I’m very lucky to be drift compatible with her.

When and how did you get your start on the Hiveswap project?

Two years ago What Pumpkin (WP) brought me on to animate Act 7, and then I transitioned into game work! Speaking of Act 7, you can check that out right here if you’d like.

Tell us a little bit about your career background! How did you get your start in animation? Do you have any advice for others looking to enter this field?

I didn’t ever expect to be an animator, to be honest. I didn’t go to school for art, and animation was a manic sort of hobby that helped me concentrate. When I graduated I decided to give it a shot as a career and happened to start freelancing for Sparkler Monthly, where another WP employee was also working, and that was when I joined the Homestuck team. My advice is, there is no one “right” way to enter the field, so draw what you want and put it out there. In my case, I drew fan art and a Homestuck fan animation called “A Lullaby for Gods,” and… here we are! In fact, you can watch “A Lullaby for Gods” right here if you’re so inclined.

We’re making a video game, so of course the question must be asked: what’s your favorite game of all time, and what games are you playing currently (if any)?

This is an impossible question; how could you ask me this!? You’re gonna have to settle for categories of favorite/influential games, including hits like I Cried for 50 Days (Shadow of the Colossus); Why Am I Doing This to Myself (God Hand); I Have a Mouth and It Is Screaming (Rule of Rose, Haunting Ground); I’m Just RPG Trash (Final Fantasy IX, Okami, Paper Mario, Kingdom Hearts); and Gitaroo-Man (Gitaroo-Man). I’m currently playing through NieR: Automata, and I drive around in Grand Theft Auto V when I really need to relax.

Are there any games that you currently use or have used as inspiration for your own animation work here on Hiveswap, or just in general?

Street Fighter III, BlazBlue, and Skullgirls for sure.

As an animator, you must have some favorite cartoons and/or anime – tell us about them!

Tekkonkinkreet was the film that made me want to animate. Something about it made me realize it was possible, that such an incredible thing was made by people, even though I grew up on a healthy diet of cartoons and anime. Some favorite cartoons include Hey Arnold! and Ed, Edd n Eddy, while Samurai Champloo and Escaflowne rank among my favorite anime. Animators who have been especially influential to me include Hiroyuki Imaishi, Yutaka Nakamura, Norio Matsumoto, and Sergio Pablos. I could talk all day about animation, so I’m gonna do you all a favor and head myself off at the pass.

What’s your workstation like? Do you like to listen to any particular kinds of music while you work? If so, tell us about it!

I work from home, so it gets very… uh… listen, there are a lot of snacks within arm’s reach, between my monitors and just a bit too close to all of my art books. Nobody should be told about this, let’s move on.

Favorite Homestuck character?

HMMM. The beta kids are nearest and dearest to my heart; I can’t rank them because they wouldn’t be great without each other. And their patron trolls. So I guess I have eight favorite characters, and are we only being asked impossible questions now.

Favorite Homestuck ship?

GUESS SO. In the early days, I was really ready for Karkat >3>John to happen, but after all these years, the long-buried ship that I think of every so often when I’m lying awake at night wondering where it all went is… Dave/Terezi.

Favorite Homestuck flash?

Lord. I’ve been going through flashes for like 40 minutes now, and this one is actually impossible. This isn’t an answer, but the first one I checked was Jade:Enter, then Jack:Ascend, then Descend, then Make Her Pay, then…

Do you have a personal message you’d like to relay to all the Homestuck and Hiveswap fans out there?

I know. You don’t think I know, but I know. I’m there too.

Today I found out that as a fanartist I was probably given too much power

(14/2 is Yamagata’s birthday and 15/2 is Kinoshita’s and I was drawing them for it and then I wondered)

For two years I worked as an island clearer.  You know those small, fancy, artificial islands off the coast of the Dubai?  Well, every once in a while someone rich would order a customized island in the shape of their choosing.  Maybe it’s a rose for their wife or a face or a turtle.  So the other guys go in with their sand, make the island to the shape required, and then the client is called and told that their custom island is completed.  But sometimes the client says they don’t want the island any more.  That’s where I came in.  Our company was never mad - I mean, in this high-profile island generating industry, you have to be customer-centric.  Just because someone doesn’t want a custom island now doesn’t mean they don’t want one later.

Anyway, my job was to go in with this ship that basically looked like it was half-bulldozer half-barge and clear all the sand off the top until it sunk back beneath the waves and disappeared forever.  I was the only person in the company who knew how to do this job correctly, and I presume the only person in the world as well.  Sure, the island builders could make the island, but they were absolutely pathetic at clearing them. So I guess you could say I had job security.  Anyway, that wasn’t important.  What was important was that I had fun doing it and helped improve the world. Follow your passions!  You never know what great treasures life has in store for you.

There is always those ships out there that you have nothing against. You may not ship it but you don’t mind it. You wouldn’t have hard feelings about it if it were to become canon…but then you get introduced to its shippers and can’t help notice that every post made by them is nothing but hostility to others and filled with so much immaturity you’re torn between wanting to reply to it or not, but you don’t want to feel as if you are arguing with a ten year old. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I know some of you like to instigate and start arguments just to put other people down, but all you’re really doing is hurting your ship by forcing people to hate it. I can’t tell you how many ships I’m now disgusted with just because of its awful following. Please stop hating and be a little nicer, if not for your ship then at least for yourself.

My future husband says whaaaaat hahaha :’D

SORRY NOT SORRY, you guys wanted more D.VA and Lucio ship so I DID IT hahaha

This joke was too perfect not be done, I even woke up in the middle of the night and wrote it on my iPad so that I didn’t forget about it the next day LOL

Since this ship is now kinda popular I guess it should have a name. I always called them Frog & Rabbit (like Tiger & Rabbit) but someone on Know Your Meme suggested we call this “Bunnyribbit” and I think it’s kinda cute. What do you think? :)

I hope you like this! :D

anonymous asked:

On a scale of 1 to 10 how likely do you think is the possibility of Sheith being canon? - Sincerely, a very distraught Sheith shipper who doesn't know whether she should trust the overwhelming staff support for Sheith as something more or just bait.

oh i think theres a good chance actually! i wouldnt believe that if not for 1 korrasami and 2 the staff already voicing that lgbt representation is something important to them that they’d like to add. sheith has a lot of backing from staff, both the writers and vas. and its nice to see that, even with some fans demanding that staff stop “withholding information” and outright writing callout posts about even the showrunner and episode directors for supporting shieth, that they haven’t stopped. there seems to be this general sentiment that the staff owes those kinds of fans something when?? its the writers’ story not theirs? and im glad they’ve made it clear that they aren’t willing to compromise decisions they’ve already made in the writing to suit what’s popular (see: “space mom” allura). 

so anyway: what’s done is done. and from what we have, i think season 2 basically establishes two potential love interests for keith: Shiro and allura. both are kinda unpopular with a lot of the fandom, but based on character interactions so far theyre the two that make the most sense to me. so anyway, i think that sheith has just as good a shot as kallura, which fans are already recognizing as something possibly romantic. There’s a bunch of parallels in their interactions i really like: 

  • shiro and allura are both represented as opposite sides of the scale in reaction to keith’s galra reveal. or, on a scale of allura to shiro, how well do you handle keith being galra after youve gotten close to him?
  • they both hug keith goodbye in this private moment to see him off before a dangerous mission. these scenes also both relate to keith being galra—shiro showing his support immediately after bom, and allura apologizing for her (quite understandable) reaction
  • both ships have an episode where they’re separated from the team and get a lot of one on one character development—see arc of traujeer  and across the universe/blade of marmora 
  • keith is the one who reassures both shiro and allura that the team needs them–who would open wormholes? and Nothing is gonna happen 

so anyway, in terms of which pairing i think is most likely, its either of those two, and id be happy with either ;;    but some other things shieth has going for it: 

  • its the ship i can most easily see being lgbt representation 
  • they already have an established backstory, one that we havent even explored yet, and we know whatever happened it was monumental enough that keith says shiro literally changed his life 
  • shiro is the person keith most desperately wants to see. out of everyone, lying there dying on the floor, the person he wants is shiro. whether you see it as platonic or romantic, its obvious that 1 keith loves him and 2 shiro is the most important person in his life. he doesnt even stay for his dad, but he does chase after the fake shiro
  • seems like theyre fated to keep getting separated and then reuniting, i dunno that seems pretty fairytale to me 
  • keith’s intro scene being his rescue of shiro. right when we first meet keith, we automatically associate him with shiro 
  • shiro wants keith to pilot black, and they already both share a mental link with her 
  • keith’s first and last lines right now are both “Shiro”
  • shiro seeing keith’s hallucinations in bom is, to me, the most deeply interpersonal, intimate scene in the entire series. its one thing to talk to another character about your feelings, but its another to be right there with them in their head. shiro saw a part of him that i dont think anyone else ever will 
  • i talked about this in my hug post a bit but while keith kinda represents this galra side of shiro (he’s the right arm of voltron and shiro’s right arm is also galra) it seems like shiro represents keith’s humanity. keith is humanized by his compassion and vulnerability with shiro. shiro is basically shown to be the one thing tying keith to earth–his family was gone, and he really had no other friends. he was lost without the garrison. after shiro was taken he had nothing left. he’s one of the only paladins who never expresses being homesick. Whatever good memories he had of earth, im guessing shiro was a big part of them. and shiro is the one there when keith finds out he’s galra, is the first one to reassure him. 
  • they mirror each other in a lot of their scenes 
  • seems to get a lot of staff support 

anyway i think it has a pretty fair shot, but that’s just my take on it. as for queer baiting in general, im already seeing people talk about that, but like…we’re 24 or so episodes into a 78 confirmed episode series. major ships aren’t gonna be cannon for a while now, so i think its best to wait a little and give some more time for relationships to develop. korrasami wasnt even a thing until the very end. and while i dont think that will be the case here, i think we just need to give it a little more time. id like to believe theyre sincere about lgbt representation, and would rather them take their time to develop it properly than get something just thrown together and feel like my identity was just reduced to a stereotype 

Thoughts on trailer

- shut up little Littlefinger SHUT UP, you got a voice over in the last trailer and I’m sick of your divisive voice.

- Sansa’s was so salty that she didn’t get to be in the stride teaser clip with Jon, Dany and Cersei she took up half the final trailer with her own stride lmao

- if the leaks are true I’m guessing the first clip of Jon is him preparing to catch a Wight, JS: “com on lads if we want help from the leaders in the south we better catch a wight and drag it all the way over there to prove it to them” some guy probably: “ur grace wouldn’t it be easier to-” JS: “LADS”

-Cersei looks round: “who’s at the door” Jaime: “its Jon Snow and his Wight” Cersei: “tell him i’m out”. ok i’ll drop this now

- Daenery’s stroke of her map reminded me of the way Cersei stroked that septa and kinda like the way Jon stroked the chairs in Winterfell, parallels idk, maybe you just start to weirdly stroke everything in a seductive way when you become King or Queen

-Arya looking powerful on a horse, Jaime walking dramatically while back turned to the camera and LF looking as creepy af as per. Standard mid way through trailer shit right there

-when the previous owner of your new house leaves his ugly décor all over 

-guessing Jon is talking to Daenerys here, but even though the Starks did bend the knee to the Targaryens for many years, they didn’t actually fight together on any occasion right?? the Starks have always been very reclusive and kept out of southern wars right?? am I missing something, am I not nerdy enough I rlly try, I should probably read world of ice a fire at some point, I’ll read it when if you write winds George

-Tyrion looks pained, probably thinking about his inevitable family reunion, everyone’s looking forward to the starks loving reunion which is fair but the Lannister’s reunion with their little hate triangle full of blame and resentment may be even better

- Brienne and Pod were absent from the entire first trailer and most of the promo pics (apart from the occasional back of Brienne’s head of course) but now they appear, it may only be for a second and a half but never has a second and a half been so well spent they waltz in like the embodiment of medieval Batman and Robin that they are, well done guys, hope you get some actual lines this season Pod.

- Sandor’s made it north then. yay.

- really hope that wasn’t Greyworm being deaded, if it is and he also has sex with Missandei this season it will solidify that if anyone gets together in got either one or both of them will die soon after: Robb and Talisa, Jon and Ygritte, Renly and Loras to name but a few.

-yh okay loads of fighting scenes

- Bran: “Hodor’s dead so I guess i’ll have to get an actual wheelchair now”

- who’s the old man with Bran he looks a bit like bloodraven but he’s dead so…

- wtf Beric didn’t even need a fire to light his sword, how??? is he the prince that is promised or something he’s not even alive in the books ffs

- Daenery’s ships have wings?? babe I know you’re a dragon queen and everything but don’t you think you’re taking the aesthetic a little to far

- so Jaime is charging in a field on his own with fire everywhere looking kinda of manic, it looks like he might be trying to fight a dragon “ JAiME dO NOt try to fight a DRAgON you will get yourself KILLeD, r u mad son” god I hate my favourite character.  

- Theon and Asha Yara look like they just witnessed the firework display of the decade

- the last 10 seconds are so much I don’ t even know what to say

- I actually yelled when Sansa quoted her daddy, at least someone reads the books. 

-where’s Gendry

anonymous asked:

PT would you consider yourself a retired pirate? And what do you do with your free time?

* Phải, well– I… I guess I am. I couldn’t go pirating if I wanted to, and I want to…


* …..……

* –Well, I used to spend most of my time maintaining the ship before I met Zunde, Newton, {..} and Jee.

* Now I have… well… a quaint little… family to consider. If I could be so bold to say.

* So I spend most of my time now doing things with them in mind. 

all life is strange ship prompts

Most of these prompts I’ve basically discarded or they’ve already been written, but I have many prompt ideas so here’s small little ideas for you guys (Sorry, I’m Pricefield trash so there’s a ton of those, but please send me your story so I can read them if you do use one of these ideas please because I like reading new life is strange fanfics):

Pricefield:
- “We experimented over wine-tasting sessions as kids, but now we’re adults meeting each other for the first time in five years and oh my god is that sexual tension between us?”
- “I’m terrified of men because of something that happened in the past, and Rachel and Chloe are trying to make me feel comfortable with Warren but I’m slowly realizing that it’s not Warren that my eyes have been focused on.”
- “Warren keeps asking me to the drive-in so I asked my best friend Chloe for advice, so now we’re fake dating but I think I’m really getting used to this idea.”
- “This punk girl keeps on coming to the homeless shelter at the same time each week purchasing a shit ton of water bottles, canned chili, and loaves of bread with money that comes from God-knows-where but holy shit, she’s actually royalty whose parents are trying to keep her name under wraps.”
- “I recited one of my poems at a poetry slam about my childhood best friend, turns out she was there listening to my every word and now I’m humiliated.”
- “I dared Max to kiss me, but her nose started bleeding and I can tell she’s rewinded more than once and she just told me not to pull back because apparently, that’s what’s going to happen.”
- “Max and I are at her Seattle home, and I just discovered a treehouse her Dad built for her. I’m sorry, Ryan, I’m using this opportunity alone with your daughter to try and seduce her.”


Marshfield:
- “One of the pieces you played on the violin is something I recognized, and you anonymously (even though I know it was you) slid a tape under the door of that piece on Valentines day.”
- “It started raining on our tea date, so we ran inside the cafe with our clothes dripping wet but wow, Kate, you’re so cute with your hair pulled out of the bun.”
- “Max has been taking photos for the children’s book I’m writing and one of the photos she took was of the sunset with a sweet quote on it and I think I’m blushing.”
- “We decided to skip class, and we went to the park with Alice in the middle of the day and wow, Max’s smile is so beautiful. Am I really thinking this?”
- “After Max saved me off that rooftop, all I’ve been thinking about is how much she’s supported me over the past month and a half she’s known me and according to google, I have a crush on Max.”


Chasefield:
- “I’ve been talking to this girl online and turns out, she’s just like me and I’m starting to dig her. Turns out when I meet her, she’s one of the girls I personally resent.”
- “I ended up saving your ass from getting eaten by a crocodile while we’re camping but I still hate you. Okay, so maybe that’s not the case. What’s it to you?”
- “Even though you’re trouble, you still invited me to your celebration banquet after getting one of your photos in your parents gallery and we seem to get along just fine when we genuinely talk to each other. Wait, are you flirting with me now?”
- “We accidentally hooked up in the middle of a party involving a shit ton of alcohol and now I’m trying to figure out how to approach you about it. Turns out, you were pretty sober during the party and you weren’t exactly rejecting my advances.”
- “You were holding my arms while I rewinded to try and erase the argument we just had, but turns out my rewind power doesn’t work on you, and now you’re freaking out asking me what the fuck is going on but at least we’re on good terms now, right? I’m now this God-like person to you, and now you’re scared yet intrigued by me.”

Grahamfield:
- “So maybe the drive-in didn’t help us progress in our relationship, but we definitely managed to hook up after an experiment gone wrong.”
- “We’re graduating out of Blackwell Academy, and I didn’t expect to blush furiously and freeze onstage when you blew a kiss in my direction.”
- “I’m tutoring you in chemistry since you’re not doing too great in it, turns out there’s only one type of chemistry you’re interested in.”
- “I fell asleep in your dorm room during a movie marathon of Harry Potter, and I woke up to you staring at me affectionately and I’m 95% sure I’m drooling.”
- “You convinced me to head to Comic Con with you, but you’re the only one cosplaying while I’m taking a ton of pictures of your nerdy self. I think this side of you is kind of cute.”

Ambrice:
- “At the lighthouse, I was thinking about ending my life when you came up behind me and started a conversation with me about something stupid, but you fucking saved my life.”
- “We nearly got busted for smoking pot in the parking lot of a restaurant, but it’s okay because we were making out the majority of the time so that’s partly why I didn’t notice.”

- “You visited me in the hospital and gave me a hug, and instead my heart is going out to you because you really do seem to care even though I give you so much shit in school.”
- “Max has been reluctantly taking care of me while I’ve been sick since Victoria can’t do it because she’s been out of town visiting family, but she’s been so sweet to me so I don’t mind the arrangement.”
- “I recognized Nathan at the aquarium spending the majority of the time with the whales, and there was this big cheesy smile on his face that immediately grabbed my attention. Now that I’m noticing it, this is my first time seeing Nathan smile…and it’s nice.”


Chasescott:
- “Victoria keeps telling me to find a girlfriend, but is she not getting the fact that I want to date her instead? Sheesh.”
- “Both of us don’t ever bring up about how we discussed marrying each other in middle school until we both got really high together and ended up talking about that.”
- “My Dad mistakes Victoria for my girlfriend, and when she vehemently denies, for some reason, I feel upset over it and correct her surprising Victoria and myself.”
- “We’re playing Laser Tag together one night but you kissed me out of nowhere in the middle of the game, and what the fuck is our relationship now? Are we best friends? Lovers?”

Grahamscott (Nathan/Warren):
- “You were in the locker room getting dressed, and WOW I just noticed your six pack. Why am I thinking so much over this?”
- “You’ve changed from nerdy boy to hardass, and for some reason, that’s my type? I think I’m starting to get curious about you now.”
- “We ran into each other in a gay bar, and I’ve never seen both of us look so ashamed and embarrassed in my life.”

- “Both me and Max come out to Kate about our relationship when she admits that she’s always been a little bicurious herself. A joke about that quickly turns serious.”
- “I just took down Kate’s viral video by going into Victoria’s youtube account, and turns out after watching it, Kate kissed a wasted Chloe. But Kate ends up being so relieved she kisses me too? So now she’s held responsible for both of us.”
- “Max brought us to the zoo and she’s torn between me wanting to see the insect exhibit and Kate wanting to stay where she is because Kate really dislikes insects so Max decides to compensate for the entire party by coming up with an idea all of us will enjoy.”


Bonus:
Frank-N-Beans:

- “As a kid, I used to hate beans but whatever these beans are, they’ve gotten me addicted to beans and now my nickname is Frank-N-Beans.”



Pricing Information

Okay, so since our second check-in for contributors was today and we’re getting closer to folks finishing, I think it’s time I discuss pricing for the zine. I’m sure folks are going to want time to save up enough money for pre-orders, which will last pretty much the entire month of August. When it gets closer to August, we’ll be posting previews of some of the art, fic, and extras.

For now, let’s focus on the pricing of everything. Keep in mind that the pricing for the zines takes into consideration that the zine will be somewhere between 100 and 150 pages and offered in either paperback, hardback, or PDF, so it’ll be great quality and overflowing with content. I’m providing rough estimations because our page count isn’t final and that determines the cost of each book, but I’ve already predicted what it’ll cost at its lowest possible page count and its highest possible page count.

PDF: $5

Paperback: $20-$25

Hardback: $30-$35

Now, this will not include extras because I want to give people the option to opt in or opt out of extras. If you can’t afford extras, then you don’t have to get them and we won’t factor them into the zine price. If people only want the extras, then they’ll have the option to purchase them without purchasing the zine.

Extra Bundle #1

  • Will probably include a couple prints, a couple sticker sheets/stickers, and a lanyard
  • With zine, it’s $10
  • Without zine, it’s $15

Extra Bundle #2

  • Will probably include a couple prints, a few sticker sheets/stickers, a few keychains, and a lanyard
  • With zine, it’s $15
  • Without zine, it’s $20

An Extra Extra

  • Still debating whether we can afford to toss this into bundle #2, but there will be an acrylic stand offered as well
  • If it’s not included in either bundle, it’ll be $10 individually

So, that’s the rough estimation of everything in terms of products. We’d like to keep it this way by the time pre-orders open in August. By announcing it now, allowing folks to choose whether or not they want extras, letting them pick which extra bundles they want, and so on, we’re hoping it gives folks enough time to save up and figure out what they’ll be purchasing when the time comes. 

I also know shipping is a huge issue for folks too, especially if you live overseas. As much as I hate to say it, we can probably expect shipping to be fairly expensive for folks in Europe, Asia, and Australia/New Zealand. I’m just guessing here, but I’d say it’ll probably be $10-$25 USD, maybe even more? I’m going to assume shipping within North America will be somewhere around $5-$15, depending on how much you buy and what everything winds up weighing. Obviously it’ll cost you less if you’re only buying the zine and it’ll cost more if we throw in the extras. I’ll figure out shipping as it gets closer to pre-orders going live, but that’s what you can probably expect. 

I think that covers it for now, though. If you’ve got any questions, comments, concerns, etc., please let us know! :D

anonymous asked:

hey just wondering but what kinda keith + lance blog is this? like, is it going to end up with klance or is it just going to stick to canon/an interpretation of canon or will it stay away from ships altogether? thanks!

glad you asked! :D 

i recommend going to the “about” page which gives a brief sypnosis about the blog. Simply put, i had a lot of really random/funny ideas of them interacting, i just really love their dynamic. i made this blog because man, i love this show. i had a lot of drawing ideas so im here to share my own take of keith and lance. here they are. here comes the Cool Kids

im generally not much of a shipper… and my interpretation of them is pretty different than from what everything ive seen, but thats just me. I’ll just do my own interpretation of these characters with everyone as one big platonic family, because you can never go wrong with that!!! i guess i was so overwhelmed with so much lovey dovey stuff that i wanted to make my own take of them, featuring more of my surreal taste of humor. I prefer them as casual badass space range partners doing really weird things so I made this …full of memes and emo angst. this is still pretty different from canon bc i think keith and lance are still more geared towards rivalry than in this blog

Because of how.. intimidating the voltron fandom is.. i think it’s best for me to stay away from ships altogether. for now. Voltron has little romance to begin with. Man I’d love it if they made klance canon, though I think the chances of any ship being canon is pretty slim (at least right now) because there’s so much outside forces that the characters have to prioritize first, but of course, I could always be wrong. 

i do ship them but not to the magnitude of a lot of people in the fandom. Then again, I literally don’t ship anyone else in this show.  If klance indeed does become canon, I am TOTALLY putting it into the blog but it will mostly stay similar, except they’ll hold hands or whatever. i dont mind getting any shippy asks, i actually have a lot of fun answering them! expect some answers soon

anonymous asked:

I hope this isn't a weird thing to ask, but... awhile back you said you shipped Kaguya/Mokou. Why, though? It's so full of hate and seems pretty abusive; why put them together when you could support happier relationships for them? I just... I'm sorry, I guess I have really strong feelings about hateships in touhou (especially given how patchy/Marisa is kind of pretty abusive-seeming to me too, yet it's popular).

No, I get where you’re coming from. I don’t actually ship Kaguya/Mokou as is - the way they are now, they’re definitely pretty unhealthy for each other, I agree. At this very moment, she’s much better off with Keine, who likes and supports her, or literally anybody else who doesn’t frustrate her to no end. Sumireko, Reisen, anybody.

However, at the very end of the universe, the only people who are still going to be chilling around are Kaguya, Mokou, Eirin, and Chang’e. Eternity is an incomprehensibly long time, Kaguya and Mokou are in the infancy of their immortality - they have both just barely even scratched the total amount of time they are going to spend existing, and their immortality has forced them to be connected through their shared fate for all of time.

It gets tiring, watching the world move by and everything impermanent you love and care about die. It gets lonely. Keine won’t last forever. Nor will Gensokyo, or even the Earth. You might become afraid to love, because you know that eventually it’s just going to be ripped away from you. The longer you live, the shorter and frailer life seems to become. Eventually, Mokou might just realize that the only thing in the world she can count on being there forever are the other Hourai immortals. Kaguya, like her, is fated to remain in existence forever and ever until the end of time. It’s something they share. When that person, that rival is all you can think about, you’ll still be thinking about them when your anger boils away and gives way to longing and loneliness.

Dozens, Hundreds, thousands, millions of years is more than enough time to forgive and forget about a grudge. I like the thought of them eventually growing tired of their mutual hate and realizing that they are going to be a constant presence in each other’s life until the end of time, and realizing that making their every moment together a fight is just strenuous. Realizing that every duel between them is less and less satisfying because it’s the same thing over and over again. Realizing that they’re the only thing in each other’s life that won’t change, won’t wither and die.

When you’re so detached from the world and the flow of time, having somebody in the same situation as you might make it just a little less lonely.

A Blue Prince To Own, Chapter 5

The mission was filled with mostly tense silence, guaranteed by Keith’s trying to burn a hole in the side of my head and Shiro’s set jaw. I just couldn’t stop grinning. I finally talked back to Shiro, finally said what was on my mind, might have royally screwed up whatever mutual understanding I had with either of them, but that apathy hasn’t gone away just yet. I just don’t care. They didn’t care about me. This is just a classic tale of what goes around comes around.

I just… feel proud of myself. Would Lotor be proud? Or would he frown at the awful things I’ve said? If he loves me like he claims, he’ll support my newfound sass. There’s no weight on my chest when we land on the planet, which is pretty standard. The aliens there are a species called the Devorah, awkwardly long armed with glossy, pupil less purple eyes, a variety of candy colored flesh, no hair, and an apparent interest in cosmetics. They were kind of… ethereal. Anyway, that’s besides the point, half of them carried around little fur balls with eyes, and they’re being abducted left and right.

Fast forward like four hours, it’s a group of radical scientists on a neighboring planet kidnapping them for research because they’re biology is pretty similar to the Devorah and there’s some sickness on that planet, I don’t know, everyone just told me to stay out of the way. It passes in a blur and all I can really remember is blowing up a research facility and commenting on how the reason they’re all getting sick is because they’re throwing their raw shit in a river that connects to the one they get their drinking water from.

The Devorah thank us by treating us to a party. And goddamn if these aliens don’t know how to throw a freaking rave. The substance that gets them drunk doesn’t do much for humans, but it does for Keith apparently, because he’s partying hard and Shiro’s just trying to keep him from committing a felony or something. Once Pidge has started to hit it off with some Devorah chick with lots of jewelry, Hunk flees and asks me what the hell I was thinking back at the castle.

“I’m tired of people treating me like shit, man.“ I explain, downing a bubble gum flavored… liquid? It’s thick. It gives me hiccups. “Like, I, hiccup, can’t be the only one who knows that Keith lowkey starts, hiccup, ninety percent of our ‘disagreements’. And that Shiro babies him and, hiccup, and blames me!”

Hunk straightens his headband and pulls a blue cherry thing out of his drink, pops it in his mouth. “Hey, I know, Keith is my teammate and the best pilot I know, but he’s kind of a dick, specifically to you. And Shiro does have a serious bias, but you can’t just… you didn’t really… it’s - ”

“What, I wasn’t supposed, hiccup, to tell him he’s being a crappy leader? Sure, I went about it a little, hiccup, strong, but no one else was gonna, hiccup, say it.”

“Lance, you made several implications to them being in sexual relationship, and generally told the truth in the worst version possible.” He takes a gulp of his green, translucent drink, then places the pink crackle glass down heavily. “It’s about censorship and sugar coating it, Lance. There’s a difference between saying ‘Excuse me’ and ‘Get the fuck out of my way’, you’re so honest and genuine, but you just do that in the rudest way. Don’t get me wrong, it needed to be said, but that was the unfiltered truth. Nobody wants the unfiltered truth, Lance!” Hunk’s always so anxious, just talking about earlier’s situation has him looking panicked.

“Well, I’m… You know, it’s not just them treating me like shit, you know, hiccup, that right?” I look him in the eye. I’m not leaving with this unresolved, not with Hunk after he’s been a loyal friend for years before all of this Voltron stuff. “It’s you, it’s Pidge, it’s Allura, it’s even, hiccup, Coran. You don’t listen to me, ever. And I know it’s not just me over exaggerating. I get that I, hiccup, talk a lot, but every once in a while, I’m expecting people to listen. You all act so high and, hiccup, mighty, like you’re too busy for me. I’m sick of all of it. And you all have pushed me too far to care whose feelings I’m hurting. I love you, Hunk, hiccup, you’re my best friend, but you’re just as guilty as them.”

His brown, doe eyes are soft and sad. Is that what my eyes looked like? “Buddy… I know everyone’s kind of been… n- neglecting you, but ever since Matt and Shiro got back, it’s been so hectic. And Matt, he’s actually a really good cook, we have a lot of fun in the kitchen, I don’t know it’s just hard to pay attention to you too. It sounds awful when I say it out loud.“

“Well, gee, here’s a thought, what you just said? Kind of is awful. You literally just said you can’t pay your best friend five freaking minutes of your time because you met someone a month ago. We’ve known each other for eight years.” My hiccups have gone away. I knew Slav was right because Hunk and I cooked together, except I would just hand him stuff and taste test. Now I’m useless even to him. I wish I could get drunk off of my bubble gum liquid. “Maybe I’d feel more inclined to tell you all the cold, hard truth if I felt any of you actually cared. It’s been all cold shoulders and that sucks, Hunk. It’s making me hate living in space.”

He knows I don’t use hate lightly. There are few things I admit to hating, myself, pineapple on pizza, politics. He knows I’m all smiles even when I’m falling apart inside, but Hunk’s too nervous of a guy to stick around when the goings get tough. He apologizes briefly and searches for Pidge to cling to. Ha. Go figure. Maybe he’s scared of the way the truth hurts.

Anyway, I’m a party guy, but it doesn’t feel very appropriate and there’s no alcohol so I settle for chatting with the bartender (Devorah are androgynous as hell, so I can’t tell if they’re a boy or a girl) and trying more colorful drinks. I score when I get a purple cotton candy liquid and blue raspberry. It’s not unpleasant, but I wish I was with Lotor nonetheless. The strobe lights are giving me a headache. It’s bad that I’m looking forward to going back to the ship, talking to Keith and Shiro, and going back to Blue so I can plot my leave. But, I’ve been bad as of late, so I guess that’s characteristic now.

I’m tired, so I go back to Blue and take my nap in her cockpit until the party revs down to it’s end. Once the lions are all loaded up, I’m called to Shiro’s room. Not Keith, of course, just me, or at least it’s just Shiro and I once I arrive at his sleeping quarters, as Allura refers to them.

He doesn’t look outraged like from earlier. He looks disappointed. He doesn’t say anything to me for a solid minute, so I cross my arms impatiently across my chest and sit down on a levitating chair placed beneath an equally futuristic looking desk and pout. I’m probably being childish, but I have a right to be.

Then, surprise surprise, Keith pops in. I’m not always the late one. The red Paladin huffs and sits on the desk directly beside me. We don’t spare each other a glance as Shiro stands before us, gaze shifting from me to him.

“Lance.” He addresses, mirroring my pose, probably in an attempt to intimidate me, but as previously stated, I’m done being bitched around. Even by our leader. “The discussion from earlier - ”

Remembering Hunk’s words at the Devorah party, I can’t help but blurt out, “I’ll sugarcoat it next time!” With genuine intentions. He frowns. I wasn’t even trying to be a dick that time. “But, you have to know that you obviously value Keith over everyone else?”

“As leader of Voltron, I value you all equally.” His eyes soften from reprimanding to sympathetic. “Unfortunately, I have begun to treat you a little… unfairly due to Slav’s predictions.”

I didn’t. That hurt. I thought it was just because Keith’s like family to him. It’s really because he thinks I won’t be apart of the team for long? Is this why everyone’s been ignoring me? My heart rate quickens as the dreadful realization settles in. They didn’t fucking care about me in the first place. As soon as I begin to slip out of myself, as soon as I begin to not fit the ideals of a Paladin, they just… pretend I don’t exist. I disappear. I don’t want to disappear, I just want to be happy, just want to be a good Paladin -

No. I’ve spent too long trying to please everyone, thinking I was the root of the problem. Thinking the blame would all collapse on me because I was never good enough for the people I just wanted to praise me or think of me as an equal, the people I just wanted to be close with, but it was all an illusion of my insecurities, a misperception of the situation, one of the thousands of times I’ve gotten something completely freaking wrong. It was them who stopped caring upon their own accords, their own doubt of my abilities, now let’s see how they’ll fair without me in their orbit at all. Let’s see how they fair when I’m cherished by another.

The tears don’t fall; I blink them away. I am not weak today. “You’ll see.” I say simply, looking down at my lap with an eery grin spread across my face. “You’ll see how this team crumbles without me. You think Matt can earn her trust? You think Matt can ever replace me? He’s not a Paladin. He’d be better off captive.”

Shiro snaps. Composure crumbling. “Don’t you say that!” He barks, muscles all taut. “You - You have no idea - ”

“Shiro, he’s just trying to set you off.” Keith interrupts, standing to put a hand on the leader’s shoulder. He loosens immediately and my eyebrows climb cartoonishly high. Oh, maybe that’s why Keith hasn’t tugged me into his room. Why they both got so red when I mentioned my little theory.

“No, I’m being honest.” I explain standing up and stretching my arms above my head. I start a leisure pace to the door. “You all believe in him now more than you’ve ever believed in me now. He wants Blue? He can be my guest. Just know, whatever it is I’m providing to Voltron, it can’t be replicated and you will all fail without me.”

They’re staring incredulously at me when I peak over my shoulder. Good. They’re just as surprised as I am at this new attitude I’ve adopted. A smile slinks onto my mouth. “I enjoyed the talk. Keith, it was nice being your fuck buddy for a while, but I guess that holes been filled by your new slut now.”

I didn’t see it coming. Keith’s aggressive, but physical altercations have hardly ever been our game, we spit venom. We both know I’ll never fair against him. We both know however flexible I may be, strength will snap me in half and distance is the only way I can ever have a chance at the upper hand. However, I guess times are changing to fast for me to grasp and physical altercations are our thing in this new scheme because there’s a fist curling around my jacket hood, yanking me around and before I can see anything other than a flash of black hair and purple eyes, Keith’s fist slams into my eye socket. I don’t register the pain right away. In fact, immediately after, it’s just black and the sound of a heartbeat before I blink myself back to reality. I’m staring at the ceiling with one eye, reach my hand up to pull away what’s blocking the vision of my other eye, only to pull my fingers back like I’d touched a hot stove.

Then the fist finally connects and the awful pain settles in, its swollen shut, warm and throbbing. He punches me again in the mouth and I shred the pink fleshy undersides of my lips against my teeth. And there’s a last kick to my ribcage, Keith disappears from my tunnel vision and I curl up and cough, blood rushing past by ears. Keith truly doesn’t need me anymore. Did he ever need me when he had Shiro? And Hunk. He admits it, he has Matt and Pidge. Allura, we were closer than ever just recently, but for naught. Coran, he’s a man who clings to his duty, and a great figure of authority. I’ll miss him, but he doesn’t need me. I’ll miss them all, but they don’t need me. This team, I’m not apart of it and maybe I never was. Shiro has his team and I will never be in it.

So, yeah. I’m done here. There’s words, but they’re all muffled and as irrelevant as me being here is, when I pick myself up off the floor because hey, my mom said littering is bad. I drag myself with my hazy, spinning head and my black eye to Blue’s cockpit and am tempted to take a nap, but no. I tell her to connect me to him, and she wants to argue so badly, I can feel it in my brain like an itch, but she knows I am toxic to myself when exposed to so many opportunities to drown in an endless ocean of self hate and sadness. She knows better than anyone that even if this isn’t the right decision, it’s one that will either succeed or fail and either way, I won’t come out of it the miserable stain on the human race I was before. To me, anything is better than being so unwanted here.

There’s only one person who needs me anymore.

A storm was coming, and not one that any experienced sailor wanted to find them self in. The black pearl docked at Tortuga, confident that no officer would ever dare set foot on the island claimed by pirates. You dressed yourself in the corset dress mother bought for you on your seventeenth birthday. Leaving the your private cabin you saw the sailors quickly hiding gold in the secret compartments below the deck. Jack was sat in the corner staring intensely at the curious map he managed to steal from the last conquest. Your father was still holding the helm as he was listening to mother go on about the fight you two previously had in the private cabin.

“I don’t understand how our sweet innocent girl has become so…” she started however Will finished for her. “Independent.”

“Remember what your father thought of you after our first adventure.” He pointed out to the gobsmacked woman.

“That has nothing to do with this, She is rude, disobedient, and….” However Elizabeth was cut off again from another voice.

“Exactly like her parents?” Jack laughed while rising up the steps with a shiny flask of rum in his hands,

“We were not!” Elizabeth exclaimed placing her delicate hands on her hips. 

“Did you not lock me up to the mast for the Kraken to eat. That was pretty rude if you ask me.” Jack half said/whispered while inching closer to her face before turning around to point at your father “And will never listened to me when we were on our way to rescue you.” The pirate reminded her parents.

“As much as I hate to say this, he’s right.” Elizabeth’s husband said as he stared into his loving wife’s eyes

“I guess so.” Your mother said before secretly smiling, happy that you turned out to be more like them. 

“Now we better get to the tavern before all the rum’s gone.” Jack said while showing a worried look. 

“I think we’ll stay on the ship.” Your father announced while placing his arm around his wife.

“Fine, but im taking Y/N with me.” Jack said knowing that you would pester him until you were allowed to go.

“Okay but be back before midnight″ Your mother gave Sparrow a stern look.

“Yes yes, and no getting drunk. I know the drill, give me some credit.” Jack raised his hands before walking over to you.

“You coming?” He knew very well the answer however felt the need to ask

“Thought you’d never ask.”

Please see Laffy’s drawing. It is coincidence that Saboala son and ZoSan daughter are both wearing blue in this drawing. It means nothing. …………..OR DOES IT.

Okay, some One Piece babies/children “headcanons” incoming.

  • It’s still unclear whether or not Law and Luffy are going to have a second child. Law argues it’s impossible to determine that the second child is going to be a boy but Luffy argues that he’s decided. DECIDED!
  • Laffy doesn’t properly understand the concept of babies. Although she does know how babies are made (male sperm, female egg cell and all that jazz), she doesn’t quite process the fact that she can’t have a tiger-fox hybrid baby brother because according to Papa, “Torao can make centaurs if he wanted to”. 
  • As for the grandpa thing, Corazon is Cora-ya and Shanks is Aka-ya because Akagami Shanks and that name is just too fricken long. Garp is Grandpa. Sengoku is Grandpa. Dragon is Dranpa because Sabo’s son mashed up Grandpa and Dragon. The name stuck and Laffy started calling him that, too.
  • Laffy can draw. Her parents says so. End of story.
  • I was discussing with @iamaxiezze​ about ZoSan daughter and we were talking about naming her Matcha, Mochi or Miwa. Matcha is green tea. Mochi is a sweet japanese rice cake and is also a fricken character in Monster Rancher, which now makes me hesitant. Miwa, on the other hand, is written with the kanji of “Three” and “Harmony”. A combination of “THREE” and “HARMONY” results to a cute baby. I am trying to make a very clever explanation/analogy/joke here. Please say you understand. Anyway, I haven’t decided yet. Please let me know you’re thoughts. GIVE ME A FRENCH NAME PLEASE
  • Saboala daughter would be Yuka because YUKA-lyptus. You can basically hear Sabo’s pride in the distance coz he thought of it and Koala’s like “He wrote it on the birth certificate when I was asleep”. Hi @nurmuzdalifah
  • Saboala’s son, I’m not entirely sure but he’d be Joie, which is basically an alternate spelling for joey coz baby koala. IDK, I’ve run out of options.
  • Franky wanted to name their daughter Pliers. Robin wants to name her Lilith. We’ll keep you posted. 
  • Frobin daughter says “WICKED!” instead of “SUPER!”
  • I don’t know what Shanks and Mihawk’s kids names are.
  • ZoSan daughter has absolute loyalty to “her captain”, Laffy, which she mostly picked up from both her parents. She sometimes tends to overdo it in the sense that she vows to slice everyone and everything that doesn’t agree with her captain. The peanut butter jar that won’t open, for instance, did not escape the wrath of her blades. 
  • Zoro tends to be overy dramatic when discussing issues of pride and loyalty and manliness to his daughter that Sanji feels like he needs to balance it by trying to tell her what a lady is like. So that resulted to a well-mannered fighter (unless Sabo’s son is involved. I’ll get to that later.). “I am aware that young ladies are expected to be prim and proper but you, sir, have been acting like a despicable donkey’s behind. I’m afraid I will have to slice you. Please do not fret. The sharpness of my knives should alleviate most of the pain.” 
  • Shanks and Mihawk’s twins were genetically made. Once upon a time, someone tried to beat the Germa by mass-producing soldiers with the genes of the best swordsmen in the world. Both swordsmen find out about this, destroy the lab and all of the research but the prototype babies were there already so Shanks goes “LOL so I guess we have kids now LOLOLOLOL LET’S DRINK” (GUYS I DO NOT EVEN SHIP THESE TWO)
  • Mihawk’s daughter wields the largest sword of them all.
  • Mihawk’s son wields dual blades.
  • ZoSan daughter has some sort of rivalry with Shanks and Mihawk’s twins. She fights them with knives.
  • Shanks Mihawk twins have a god damn high tolerance to wine and alcohol. Why they are allowed to drink, no one knows.
  • Laffy thinks Mihawk’s daughter’s sword and her insane ability to wield it is one of the most amazing things on the planet and god damn if ZoSan daughter didn’t ask uncle franky to make her the largest cleaver on the face of the earth. “I need to live up to my captain’s expectations!!!!” 
  • Laffy has a crush on Dracule Mihawk. Mihawk’s son has a crush on Laffy. Law is reminded of what helplessness feels like.
  • Saboala son is the sane one and tries to be the futile voice of reason among the chaos that is Laffy, her whims, and her vice-captain. He tries to save what he can but he finds prevention is next to impossible while clean-up is inevitable. He doesn’t know why he still tries.
  • Saboala son bickers with ZoSan daughter much like how Zoro and Sanji behave and that causes Zoro and Sanji some sort of discomfort that they could not explain. Luffy thinks it’s funny. 
  • ZoSan daughter calls Saboala son “Pretty Boy” or “School Boy” as an insult. He calls her “Curly Skirts” much to her parents’ horror. They still do not understand where this fear is coming from. At one point, Zoro wonders about cutting the boy just to see if that does something. Koala lost her shit. That had been a fun day.
  • Saboala son is the only person that does not receive well-mannered treatment from ZoSan daughter.
  • Laffy’s mastery of haki is superb. Silvers Rayleigh + Monkey D. Garp and I just….. I just CAN’T. She also has insane stamina. While she mostly fights using kicks and punches, Laffy can also fight using a myriad of haki-imbued things ranging from an eggplant to a chair.
  • Only Saboala son can spar with Laffy when it comes to haki. He fights with a pipe, too, and can do those dragon claw things because why the hell not? He knows some moves from Fishman Karate but, dude. DRAGONS.
  • Saboala’s daughter can speak a wide variety of languages because she’s been exposed to them since birth. Hack spoils her and helps Koala teach her Fishman Karate.
  • Laffy’s met Doffy. Cora-san brought her down there because he’s still family after all. She was escorted by Garp, Tsuru, Sengoku, Coby, Helmeppo, Smoker, Tashigi, and Rocinante himself. When Laffy came back, the first thing she said to Law was “The weak don’t get to choose how they die!” Law was more livid than Akainu and Ace combined.
  • Speaking of Ace, he’s alive. He sneaks Laffy off the Sunny sometimes because she likes to see Pineapple Bird aka Marco. Ace is kind of jealous that his niece thinks Marco’s flames are prettier than his.
