so this is disastrous

anonymous asked:

We know Lance is super smart, but... Headcanon that sometimes in everyday situations (or what counts for everyday situations when you're fighting a space war) he just loses all common sense and says and does dumb things. It happens so much and it's so funny that the team starts calling these times Lance Moments. Even when someone else does a dumb thing, it is called having a Lance Moment.

dude sorry this was one of those asks i’ve been sitting on bc i just. love to think of not only lance moments. but a whole array of paladin moments.

  • lance moment: when you get too overconfident and embarrass yourself
    • origin: “wow that’s like 1000 plus 10″, and other greatest hits
    • example:
      shiro: hey guys be careful there’s a bunch of debris up ahead
      keith: whatever i can handle it [promptly crashes into space garbage]
      pidge: LMAOOO KEITH LANCED UP
  • keith moment: when you forget all social etiquette
    • origin: just when the other kids had finally acclimated him to Teenage Interactions, he tried to fistbump a diplomat and it was interpreted as an attack
    • example:
      alien host: and here is our most sacred animal
      pidge: eww
      lance: [slapping a hand over her mouth] what keith here meant to say was,
    • pidge almost has more keith moments than keith. but keith’s are always more disastrous so he holds the title.
  • pidge moment: when you completely forget that there’s something else you’re supposed to be doing
    • origin: pidge was supposed to be developing a virus or something so everyone left her alone but after a full day somebody checked on her and it turns out she got distracted and had actually been programming a game on her computer
    • example:
      coran: oh, hunk! did you finish recalibrating the teludav?
      hunk: [surrounded by books on taujeerian biology] did i what
      pidge: AHA!! IT WASN’T ME THIS TIME!!
  • hunk moment: when you get overemotional at inopportune times
    • origin: everyone pulled off an incredible maneuver in the middle of a battle and hunk started tearing up and talking about how much he loves everyone and “hunk, i love you too buddy, but maybe save this for later”
    • example:
      shiro: …and you’re such a smart and talented young lady and i’m so proud of everything you’ve accomplished–
      pidge: ok ok i know hunk thank you but i really need to be hacking into this server right now
  • shiro moment: when you accidentally let something really morbid slip out
    • origin: after two sleepless nights, allura asked shiro if there was anything he needed and he replied in a monotone “the sweet embrace of death”
    • example:
      coran: it’s a fascinating creature honestly! once it has completed growing, it only has ten quintants before its body begins destroying itself.
      lance: goals
      keith: …are you ok? that was a very shiro thing to say.

bonus:

  • allura moment: when you surprise everyone with a previously unknown kickass ability
    • origin: the shapeshifting thing, and probably many others
    • example:
      pidge: [grabs a stick and knocks a bomb far into the distance]
      lance: what the heck
      pidge: what? matt and i used to play baseball all the time, i’m pretty good at it
      lance: god you’re such an allura
  • coran moment: when you pull a paladin moment, but play it off flawlessly
    • origin: anything he ever says. he’s making up half the nonsense that comes out of his mouth. nobody notices or calls him out on it.
    • example: there are none. coran is the only being known to pull off a coran moment.

Context: Our party was stuck in a tower with orcs blocking the only exit. Our halfling fighter and gnome monk were the only ones who could get out the window and so they got out to sneak around and ambush from behind. 

DM: Alright, I’m gonna need you to roll for a stealth check since you’re sneaking past an orc party. 

Gnome: Oh no. 

We look and see she rolled a natural 1. 

DM: Normally that would be disastrous…But they also rolled a 1, so. As you move past the orcs, you crash clumsily through the brush, shouting. However the orcs are carrying their Walkmans and can’t hear you over the tunes. 

1. Words of Affirmation

Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,”are important – hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten. Kind, encouraging, and positive words are truly life-giving.

2. Quality Time

In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there – with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby – makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful. Quality Time also means sharing quality conversation and quality activities.

3.  Receiving Gifts

Don’t mistake this love language for materialism; the receiver of gifts thrives on the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift. 

If you speak this language, the perfect gift or gesture shows that you are known, you are cared for, and you are prized above whatever was sacrificed to bring the gift to you. A missed birthday, anniversary, or a hasty, thoughtless gift would be disastrous – so would the absence of everyday gestures. Gifts are visual representations of love and are treasured greatly.

4. Acts of Service

Can vacuuming the floors really be an expression of love? Absolutely! Anything you do to ease the burden of responsibilities weighing on an “Acts of Service” person will speak volumes. 

The words he or she wants to hear: “Let me do that for you.” Laziness, broken commitments, and making more work for them tell speakers of this language their feelings don’t matter. Finding ways to serve speaks volumes to the recipient of these acts.

5. Physical Touch

This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face – they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. 

Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive. 

Physical touch fosters a sense of security and belonging in any relationship. 

after leaving the most prestigious military school in the country(and being the only Catboi to do so) fabian gets drafted from the age of 18-22 in a disastrous war, ends up leading his little squadron. its four yrs of hard graft, basically shreds up his naivety, also shreds up his arm, he makes some good friends but they mostly die. The End.

listen y’all are free to enjoy ur sadstuck in peace but in my post canon universe karkat, kanaya, terezi and callie are just as immortal as all the god tier kids and the second I sense some piece of fanwork is gonna delve into the hell that is “the ppl who didn’t godtier die leaving behind their immortal SOs” I slam the back button light 40 candles and a burn a piece of paper that says that’s not what ultimate reward means i can do whatever i want

The biggest thing that people have said is that they love how every episode it’s like, ‘Ok, what are the girls going to conquer this time?’ So, there is this drama and this amazing stuff, but it’s never this disastrous or negative thing. It’s always kind of like ‘How do you pick yourself up and dust yourself off?’ and that is what I’m excited for people to continue to watch these women do. They just keep getting back up.

In which Saiki comes across a charismatic little girl that somehow reminded him of a certain someone he was escaping from on his way home from school just now.

But he was sure he had never seen nor encountered this strange girl before in his life, so he was really troubled and bothered by the fact that this pink-haired kid caught up to him, grabbed his sleeve, and chanted with the most ecstatic voice full of glee a little toddler could muster,

“Daddy!”

TO BE CONTINUED (nah jk just a teaser for that idea where Saiki meets his future daughter)

You’ll think that letting go of something that you’ve been holding on to for so long will be disastrous. But if that one thing pulls you beneath the earth, suffocates you, makes you vulnerable to pain then you must get out! The pain will eat you and you shall rot if you stay so it’s best letting go. Some things are beyond repair.

It is critical that we inform as many people as possible about the truth. The Senate will be voting on #TrumpCare aka the #GrahamCassidyBill sometime within the next two weeks so it is imperative that we open people’s eyes to this disastrous legislation. -mk

Call your Senators and tell them “VOTE NO on TRUMPCARE!”

Say that again; H.S.

“So how did your date turn out the other night?” Harry appears into my side view, still buttoning up his crisp, ironed-by-me chemise as he walks to stop beside me. I turn on my heel, bumping my hip into the marble countertop as I let a humourless chuckle flow past my lips.

“Disastrous. Catastrophic. I-never-ran-so-fast-in-my-life-short.” I laugh loudly, handing Harry the utensils for his dinner in a few hours. I pull on his shirt near his shoulder to straighten it before I lightly push at Harry’s chest to get him up and going – there wasn’t much time left.

“Couldn’t be that bad,” Harry starts off but pauses ever-so-subtle, “or can it?” he disappears from my view – hopefully to his large dinner table in his living room – elevating his voice so we could continue our conversation.

“Believe me. It really can be. Not that you ever experienced a hell like that.” Again, a chuckle passes my lips while I shake my head. A friend of Harry’s had set me up on this date and the male in question wasn’t that horrible, but our mind sets were so different I don’t think that could have ever worked out. I cut the date short after a comment that resembled ‘all women belong in the kitchen’ and sent the lad on his way.

“As if girls throwing them at my feet is something that’s so thrilling. Can’t even have a proper conversation like that. They only have one thing on their mind.” Harry appears back into my view to grab a few napkins on the edge of the table, already turning on his heel again.

“Not to start anything – but uh – you sound like a woman. All men are the same kinda shit? But reversed.” I stop my motions as an amused grin crawls onto my features, dropping the dessert spoons back on the marble and discarding them all together.

“I’m offended. You’re implying that I whine. I don’t whine, I complain that I can’t get laid.” Harry’s voice is still humorous as he ducks beside me to grab the dessert spoons off of the table, bumping his hip with mine to get me out of the way. “I still need glasses.”

“Harry come on, if you wanted loose sex, you’d have it in an instant.” I ignore his comment about the glasses but turn for the cabinet either way. Harry wasn’t someone you could just approach like you’d do while out clubbing, but that didn’t mean the boy couldn’t get lucky from time to time.

“I couldn’t even fix myself a proper date? Let alone find myself a one night stand. They don’t see me like that.” Harry mopes somewhere on the premises of his loft, but nowhere in my line of sight. I visibly roll my eyes – although he obviously can’t see that – all the while a scoff leaves my lips.

“Ah come on, Styles. You’re fuckable. Don’t complain.” I discard his nonsense almost directly. Sometimes I wonder if Harry realized how attractive he even was. He could come off as strong and confident but he was just as insecure as the rest of us – maybe even more than the rest of us.

“What did you just say?” Harry’s voice lowered, his movements stilling as his whole body turned in my direction. “I – never mind.” I mumble, feeling a blush creep onto my features from Harry’s intense stare. The confidence I had once possessed around had completely drained because of his whole aura, the demanding stare accompanied by that lopsided smirk of his.

“Say it again,” Harry demanded quietly, already making his way back up to me, a smile beginning to grow on his lips.

“You’re – well. Desirable. You damn well know that H.” I groan, not quite sure why he suddenly desired a confirmation of his good looks – let alone from me. I’m not sure how long it takes for any sound to pass between us. Harry had always been someone for a dramatic pause now and then.

“I didn’t know you thought about me that way, Y/n.” Harry’s smirk continues to grow as he discards the cutlery completely, slowly trailing towards his open kitchen, where I’m still gathering other utensils needed for Harry’s family dinner.

“I didn’t say I did. I was stating a well-known fact.” I awkwardly throw back at him, trying to maintain a grin of my own as I feel the ground underneath my feet heating rapidly.

“You sure?” He toys with me, his eyes twinkling underneath the dim lighting of his kitchen. He twirls around me, collecting the glasses I had gotten out of the cabinet one by one.

“Yeah…” I trail off, wondering to myself if I was indeed sure of my words. I keep my gaze trained on the expensive crystal instead of my best mate fluttering around me as if this wasn’t a conversation we weren’t supposed to have.

“Too bad.” I still in my movements, one of my hands curled around the stem of a wine glass as I balance my whole weight on my tippy toes. I try to speed-rake my mind about what intentions could have been behind those two simple, plain words, but come up rather empty-handed. Well, I was never someone who could rapidly come up with solutions anyway.

“Too – what? Why?” I come out of my trance, landing back onto my feet as I turn around, glass dangling in my hand which Harry happily plucks from between my fingers.

“I’d – I wouldn’t mind.” He winks and within a split second my cheeks are a fire-blazing red and my eyes are as wide as they can possibly get without popping.  

I’m taking one step forward, towards Harry, but refrain from moving any further. I’m not sure if I’m reading his words as I’m supposed to, and I’m not ready to give into my urges if they are misplaced. Harry is a bit more confident than I am and closes the gap between us in just a matter of a few split seconds.

I’m pressed against the counter, my hands covering over Harry’s biceps as his own hands cup my face, keeping me in place. A little noise – what it was supposed to sound as, even I am not completely certain – leaves my lips and causes Harry to push himself even impossibly closer.

His hands wander, his lips staying locked with mine as my own mind seems to click. My hands rest on his firm biceps first, a few moments later letting them flow over his exposed arm towards his toned chest. I’m letting my fingers ghost up on his chest towards his neck when Harry’s hands cup my bum firmly, drawing a moan from my already parted lips.

“How much time do we still have?” Harry breathes against the skin of my neck. He technically forces me to open my eyes, which are immediately cast towards the clock on the far kitchen wall. “If we’re lucky, about forty-five minutes.”

“That’s all I need.” Harry chuckles as his arms snake around my body, hoisting me up into his arms. I just hope we’re not getting an unexpected visit.

You want to solve the final Pip? You’re already late.

In The Great Game, Moriarty made Sherlock dance by sending coded messages through the pink replica phone.  And in “Many Happy Returns”, we see this:

The box of stuff Greg has of Sherlock’s that he’s kept for some reason and decides to give to John.  In it are four important pieces of information – one could even say a game.

A yellow mask, a Hornby Train, Nicotine patches, and the pink phone.  

At first glance, seeing the pink phone reminds us of “A Study in Pink”, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be that phone.  In “The Great Game”, Moriarty sends a replica to Scotland Yard to communicate clues.  This phone in the box is more than likely Moriarty’s phone to Sherlock, since it was mailed to him in the first place and therefore Sherlock’s legal property.  

This box is a signal for the last pip.

The writers have sent the final pip, alongside the phone.  The viewers were given hints as to where the series was going.  It’s all in that box.  And it’s been there this whole time.  

“Nicotine patches.  Helps me to think”

This box is meant to be decoded.  The patches imply focus, brainwork.  The phone is the pip.  The mask is a reference to “The Adventure of the Yellow Face” while the train is a reference to Doyle’s “The Lost Special”.

The Adventure of the Yellow Face includes a wife with a huge secret regarding her previous life in America, the potential for blackmail, her chickens coming home to roost, her husband who stays with her no matter what the cost, her husband who (upon her request) doesn’t ask questions she does not want to answer, the concept of whether or not she believes her husband is a “good man” (and that he wants to be a good man), and Sherlock Holmes screwing it all up then instructing Watson to use the term “Norbury” whenever he gets too cocky in the future.

Whew.  That’s, like, episodes 8-12 right there. 

And this was hinted at before episode 7 aired.

Now let’s look at the train.

By now you must have heard the story of Doyle’s “The Lost Special”.  In 1893 he published a detective story about a missing traincar (called a ‘special’) that was detached from the original and hidden somewhere else.  This is exactly what happens in episode 7, The Empty Hearse, which is also parallel to “V for Vendetta”.  Considering V’s hearse was a detached traincar that went on to blow up Parliament, Sherlock having an “empty hearse” coincides perfectly with the empty traincar positioned under Parliament, as well, and now I have a migraine. 

In Sherlock, the missing piece of the train is hidden beneath Sumatra Road and it’s carrying something so disastrous that it must be stopped, lest it unleash hell.

“The roads we walk have demons beneath, and yours have been waiting for a very long time.”

So the yellow mask in the box was pertinent to five episodes spanning two series and eight plot points, but the train in the box was pertinent to only one episode and one throw-away plot point?  I don’t buy it.  

So here I wait, patient as ever, for that bomb to go off, the one hidden beneath the surface, tied up in legal disputes, the one that was detached from the rest and stowed away for the perfect time when nobody would know what hit them. 

They gave us our pip and told us to think, now it’s just a matter of time.
