[whispers] soulmate au where you can steven universe style fuse with your soulmate(s)

*star eyes* Oh my gosh I love this idea!


  • Everyone is born with a gem/precious stone (or sometimes a metal or mineral that wouldn’t normally be considered a gemstone) somewhere on their body. This isn’t a full-on gemsona situation, but gemstones as this AU’s soulmark equivalent.
  • There’s a hereditary component to what gem you get, but it’s not simple inheritance. (i.e. You have a higher probability of having the same gem as one of your parents, and some family lines run relatively pure, but it’s also common to share a gem with a more distant relative, or to have something your family hasn’t seen in recent generations)
  • Gems come in “families,” so even if a certain bloodline runs pure, there’s still going to be a little variation. For example, the beryl family–beryl, emerald, aquamarine, heliodor, ect–are very closely related. Hunk’s family tends toward beryl gems.
  • On that topic:
  • Hunk has a heliodor (a stone associate with warmth and sunshine) on his chest [example of a heliodor]
  • Pidge has a malachite (associated with nature and supposedly good at preventing sensory overload) at the nape of her neck [example of malachite]
  • Matt has a goethite (associated with grief and raw emotion, often found with malachite deposits) on the inside of his wrist [example of goethite]
  • Shiro has a black opal (associated with karma and the cosmos, and often thought to bring misfortune despite also being regarded as a healing stone; the black variant is notable for the stark contrast with the blues, greens, reds, and yellows contained within) at his collarbone [example of a black opal]
  • Lance has a turquoise (associated with luck and ambition, but also unity and leadership, and said to confer protection if given to you by a friend) on the back of his left hand [example of turquoise]
  • Keith has a vein of luxite (the metal in his mother’s blade, and not something anyone on Earth recognizes) across his right palm. He wears his gloves in part to hide it.
  • Theoretically, anyone can fuse with anyone else, but the vast majority of fusions are unstable. There’s no way to tell who can form a stable fusion with whom until it happens
  • The official definition of “soulmate” is “a pair or grouping that can remain fused indefinitely.” Since it’s obviously impossible to prove that you can stay fused forever, and since most unstable fusions fall apart quickly, the cutoff is often set at five minutes. Any people who can stay fused longer than that are considered soulmates (if they choose to label themselves that way.)
  • There’s also no way to tell from gems or from the fusion itself if the bond is romantic or platonic. You’d have to ask the people involved.
  • That doesn’t stop people from coming up with a millions theories anyway. (”Romantic partners always have the same gem!” “Romantic partners NEVER have the same gem!” “Platonic partners will always have gems in the same family!” “There are romantic sets–but good luck reaching an agreement on what the sets are.”)
  • Fusions look just like regular people with a few exceptions: they’ll have 2+ gems, but depending on placement you might not be able to tell; their eyes will usually be banded the colors of members of the fusion, but you have to look closely to notice; and there will sometimes be additional markings in the colors of the gems, often forming a trail connecting the two gems.
  • Other than those minor physical differences, fusions are also notably different if you look at brain scans. They don’t generally maintain two (or more) separate consciousnesses, but they retain the knowledge, memories, and capabilities of the people involved, and they tend to have much higher levels of brain activity on any given task. Fusions who are familiar with their fused state tend to be more dexterous, have better reflexes, and be physically stronger than their unfused counterparts, and they tend to solve problems more quickly and more efficiently.

The rest of this (i.e. the Voltron ‘verse story) is going under a cut because this is already long.

honestly during the fake proposal on tonight’s stream Matt seemed so geniune and heartfelt like he was actually proposing to her again and it was beautiful -🍑

Hey remember ‘zero romantic thoughts a day’?

It’s been almost 7 months and that is still


run away days

Some how Neil escapes both the Feds and the hospital. It’s mindblowingly amazing that after being tortured and kidnapped and held under surveillance that he managed to slip past the Feds and out the front door (the security footages showed him just walking on out, barely upright. He had stolen new clothes and nicked some baseball cap but anyone who knew Neil knew that desperate set in his shoulders.).

Andrew was livid.

Neil had panicked and fled, face torn up and body a bloody mess. He hadn’t even taken a phone with him, or his duffle bag. All that he had left behind was a scrap piece of paper that he had written im sorry on in his own blood.

The Feds were searching and Andrew was combing the streets. Neil was smart enough to avoid the train station and the bus station along with the main roads. He knew Neil well enough to know that he would migrate towards an airport.

It was stupid, seeing as how he had no ID much less a passport and Andrew was going to handcuff him to his own wrist the moment he got his hands on him.

He was driving down one of the back streets seething in anger, hands gripping tight to the steering wheel.

Neil was hunched over on a street corner by himself and Andrew slammed on the brake the moment he caught a glimpse of him.

“What the fuck do you think you’re doing?” He demanded as he slammed the car door hard. Neil gave a violent flinch, looking up with a panicked expression. “Thought I told you to stop playing rabbit.”

He got a shrug in response and a chance to take a look at the hospital bandages. Blood was showing through at a few spots and he frowned hard.

“Old habits.”

“Figure out how to break them.”

His anger, much to his dismay, was slipping away. Andrew made an attempt to pull Neil up but was rejected, arms lifting to cover his face as Neil leaned back out of reflex. “Pretty stupid sitting in the open like this. Thought you had survival instincts.”

Neil looked up at him blankly. “I don’t think I want to anymore.”

Ah, Andrew frowned. Neil was waiting for someone to pick him off. Do the majorly post poned job and kill him. Gun, knife. Nothing overly new. This wouldn’t stand.

“Yes or no.” He asked and waited for the slight jerk of Neil’s head, half unaware and half exhausted. Andrew placed one hand on the back of his neck, waiting for the anxiety to die down a bit before using his other hand to grasp Neil by the elbow and force him to stand up.

Neil winced, standing. His legs trembled with the effort and his skin seemed to burn. Suddenly Andrew was herding him towards the still running car and for a moment he tried to push away and flee but was blocked. It was a subtle repositioning of stance, Andrew shifting to prevent Neil from slipping past and instead had him seated in the car, buckled in and contained.

The window went down a few inches and Andrew kept an eyes on him, even as he drove him back to the hospital.

Everything was a mess there, nurses up in arms with the Feds and the foxes up in arms with everyone. Kevin was hunched over in the waiting room drinking what appeared to be a combination of protein powder and vodka while Matt was on his phone calling out what sounded to be a description of Neil-“he’s really fucking short, and I love him so find him”- before catching sight of Andrew gently guiding Neil into the area.

“Where did you find him?” Matt demanded, getting close but not to close because Neil looked like a nervous wreck, half leaning towards Andrew and half trying to stumble backwards out the doors. “Are you okay?”

“I’m fine,” he whispered, words like plastic against a face covered in bandages and misery.

“Bullshit,” Aaron announced from where he was perched on a bench. “You need bandages changed, probably pulled some stitches. Ever think maybe taking it easy instead of pulling off an escape might be a good idea?” Dan hummed in agreement as she waved over a nurse.

Suddenly people were swarming and Neil was pressed up against a wall with Andrew standing guard. Feds were talking loud and fast and he could barely keep words straight when Andrew moved to block one man with handcuffs from touching him. “Don’t even think about touching him.”

“We were very clear what would happen if you tried this. He’s had his warning, now please move out of the way.”

“What exactly has he done wrong?” Allison demanded, elbowing her way through the collection of nurses to get closer. “He’s just a witness who got scared off. Technically you’re more at fault for letting him just walk on out those doors.”

“He needs protective custody. Nathanial isn’t in a strong mentality to be left to make his own decisions.”

“Neil,” Andrew said loudly, “is staying right here.”

“He’s dangerous to have around.”

“I’m more dangerous than you’d think.”

Neil was skittish, trying to find an exit to escape the crowd of people and Feds were pushing in to much and suddenly Andrew had backed him up towards a wall of solid muscle, Matt who gently put an arm around him and stood tall towards anyone who dared to blink in their direction. Renee was up beside Andrew and Kevin was close to Neil, hands curled tight.

Suddenly the world was hard to focus on much of anything and he slid down to the floor.


“You’re idiot boyfriend over exhausted and dehydrated himself.” Aaron told Andrew. “Next time he decides on fleeing pack him a water bottle.”

He was hooked to an IV and had his wrists restrained until it could be proved he wasn’t a danger to himself. The moment Neil had collapse the nurses descended, sending him deeper into the hospital. Matt had followed with Aaron while the rest of the foxes stood off to the Feds. It had been three hours of point blank refusing to agree that Neil had any potential of danger (beyond what Nicky called his oblivious cruelty to his attempts at flirting with the striker)

“Shut up.” Andrew said smartly.

Neil’s name was to be legally changed to Neil Josten and nothing was to change at all. He would attend trial for Lola’s crimes as well as testify to the extent of his father. He would remain a fox. He would remain their own.


After his release Neil was a bit different. His sessions with Bee were weekly mandatory sessions and he refused to cooperate at all. Andrew got into the habit of escorting him to and from, as well as sticking around to monitor the situation afterwards. Neil sometimes became flighty and unpredictable and Andrew had found him after the second session packing and unpacking his duffle bag over and over again.

He said stopped using lighters anywhere near him and there was an unspoken promise between them. Neil would try to cope and Andrew would handle what Neil couldn’t. If that meant to force him to not run away or to drag him to the therapy sessions, Andrew was fine with it.

LATTE (matt and lance)

This got…a little out of hand. It was supposed to be a short one-shot, and it wound up being a bit more like a nearly 2.5k oneshot. Hope you enjoy it, though, anon!

Also, since we don’t know much about Matt’s character right now, I had to make my own headcannons.

“Lance, are you in?”

“Yeah, just a sec…” He peered around the corner. “It looks clear. You said they’re at the end of the hall?”

“According to the schematics.” Pidge’s voice was low and tense over the comm link. “Can you see them?”

“Not yet. Any guards showing up?”

“I think Keith’s diversion worked pretty well. They’re all in the east wing.”

Lance took another quick peek and rushed down the hall. “Okay. I’m going in.” He plugged in a small computer Pidge had given him to the handprint reader beside the room at the end of the hallway. “It’s ready.”

She remoted in and made quick work of hacking through the security system keeping the door locked. “Just a minute…” He glanced over his shoulder nervously as she worked. “Got it.”

The door whooshed open, and Lance ran inside. The large, dimly lit room was filled with prisoners, all looking defeated and exhausted. They stared at him for a brief moment before it sunk in that he wasn’t a Galra soldier.

“Everyone, follow me. I’m gonna get you out.” Lance grinned. “I’m a paladin of Voltron. We’re here to rescue you. Go out in the hall, and I’ll lead you out of here.” By far, this was his favorite part of the job. Saving people and, hopefully, reuniting them with their families. He ushered them out of the room one by one, mentally counting how many he’d need to accomodate. “Pidge, do we have any spare ships? There’s a lot more here than I can fit in Blue.”

Unfortunately for Lance, he didn’t even hear her answer. Instead, he froze and lost focus entirely when he saw the next two prisoners ready to hurry out into the hallway.

“Wait.” He grabbed the younger man’s shoulder. “Are you…” His heart was racing. He couldn’t be wrong about this. Not with Pidge listening in. “Are you Matt Holt?”

Image: Detail from the opening page of Solid State by Matt Fraction and Albert Monteys, from a concept (album) by Jonathan Coulton. (Image Comics)

In April, musician Jonathan Coulton released Solid State, a sci-fi concept album that represented a significant departure — both from Coulton’s wry, bright, tuneful back catalog and from any conventional understanding of what a sci-fi concept album sounds like.

The album features multiple perspectives and timelines, but its soundscape is allusive and impressionistic, resisting strict narrative. For that, Coulton turned to writer Matt Fraction and artist Albert Monteys, who with Coulton’s input have taken some of the album’s words, images and thematic preoccupations and crafted a graphic novel set largely in a future that will seem familiar to any reader of science fiction: a corporate-owned dystopia where humans have become dutiful, unthinking, unfeeling worker bees attending to menial tasks amid a culture engineered to keep them unthinking and unfeeling.

The result, according to NPR’s Glen Weldon, is intriguing, but untidy.

‘Solid State’: Jonathan Coulton’s Sci-Fi Concept Album Becomes A Graphic Novel
