Pairing: Sheith

Summary:  Shiro wants to watch the storm. Keith offers something else.  Written for @sheithpositivityweek


Just outside the castle, a thunderstorm raged.  Lightning crackled and raced, illuminating the clouds from within or striking the ground in vicious, brilliant bolts.  Sheets of rain smashed against the windows, and the wind ripped through the trees and foliage below.  A rumble sounded, starting as a low growl, then evolving into a huge crack that reverberated in Shiro’s ribs.

On Earth, the power of this storm might have been frightening.  From within the castle, it was fascinating.

Stepping over, Keith stood shoulder to shoulder with Shiro.  Rather than watching the storm, his eyes were firmly on Shiro.

Personally, I adore stormy weather. The louder and more wild it gets, the more at peace I feel. It's an unusual comfort since I get that many are afraid of storms because of lightning?? But have you noticed any swords who seem to enjoy or find such weather soothing like me? And I believe you've mentioned Otegine is afraid of them, anyone else afraid or at least uncomfortable with such weather?

Kogitsunemaru and Kogarasumaru have a habit of taking a bottle of warm sake to one of their rooms, opening the door, and watching the storm pound across the inner courtyard. They claim it’s quite relaxing.

Personally I’m somewhat ambivalent about bad weather. It’s annoying when it interferes with one of my experiments or with a mission, but once in a while a big storm will swoop in and cover our tracks when we’re on the move. It’s about context for me.

Hotarumaru, Gokotai, and Midare are also afraid of storms. Out of the three, Hotarumaru puts up the biggest front about not actually being afraid, but every time a storm rolls in he seeks refuge in taishou’s office. Much to Akashi’s dismay Hotarumaru continued to go to her for comfort even after Akashi arrived. I don’t believe it’s a deliberate slight on Hotarumaru’s part, it’s just habit at this point.

Gokotai seeks out Ichinii, Atsushi, or me when he hears thunder. His tigers are never far behind and snuggle with us as well.

Midare will simply dive into the arms of the nearest person. Last time it was Urashima who was *very* confused and rather flustered because he didn’t know that Midare is afraid of storms. He was under the impression that he was getting a hug from my charming, pretty brother.

X-Men: Evolution tho

I feel like people are forgetting how great this show is so I want to remind you all that:

  • Mystique was literally every new character and every other villain
  • I’m not kidding. New student? Mystique.The principal? Mystique. That Scottish punk rocker? Mystique.
  • That bird? Also Mystique. If someone is not a main character then they are Mystique.
  • Sometimes if someone is a main character they are still Mystique, like the episode where it turns out that Professor X was Mystique for the whole season
  • Magneto menacingly twirls paperclips in the air in like half the scenes
  • Magneto refuses to stand and instead floats at all times, even if it’s just an inch above the ground
  • Magneto is only shown as a helmet hiding in the shadows for the entire first season
  • Storm is boss as hell and was worshiped as a goddess when she was younger
  • There was an episode where all of the girls lowkey started a gang and tore shit up and kicked the asses of villains more effectively than the entire X-team did for the whole series???
  • Wolverine and Sabretooth fought every time they saw each other. In the mall? On top of a parking garage? While on motorcyles? Fight WITH THE MOTORCYCLES? Like they could literally smell one another miles away and they would run through the whole city just to fight one another, it’s ridiculous
  • The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants crashed a high school soccer game once
  • Everyone in the Brotherhood is a sassy asshole and I love it, esp Quicksilver
  • Professor X is completely unfit to supervise children but people keep giving him their children to supervise
  • Including his own son, whom he, predictably, also failed to supervise
  • There was an episode where hunters caught Beast because they thought he was Bigfoot
  • Right before Jean was going to confess her ~feelings~ to Scott Mystique fucking kidnaps him and throws him to wolves in the desert lol. Professor X also refused to believe another fucking telepath when she said Scott was in danger
  • One of the characters joins a cabal of sewer mutants after he is disfigured by drinking soda that functions as mutant poison
  • Magneto had some secret headquarters at a ski resort
  • Blob knows how to make radish roses
  • The show is surprisingly positive and has great female characters and also some really good commentary about marginalized groups???
  • It’s also really true to the comics and does a lot of great side characters justice
  • Wolverine is like two feet tall in the show, just like in the comics, he’s a great angry munchkin tbh

The problem is that Steven has a simple question, and because it is a simple question, he thinks that there is a simple answer.

Who was the real Rose Quartz? 

Was she the loving figure that Greg remembers? The war hero that Garnet and Pearl remember? The liar and failed leader that Bismuth remembers? The murderer that Jasper and Eyeball remember?

The truth is that she was all of these things. People are complicated, and Rose had six thousand years of life experience for Steven to wrap his head around.

Revenge on homophobic dad

So I came to visit my dad on Easter and I’ve never heard so many homophobic words in 6 fucking days. He went full on how gross and disgusting and all that homophobic bullshit and then - of course - he fetishised lesbians, because “they are nice to look at”. I got really pissed when he started to wonder if Church will let him change godfather for my brother, because the one he has Come out as gay couple weeks ago… I was like “what is wrong with you? I honestly want to know?!?!?”

I tried to use reasoning but it failed so now I’m in the middle of making my revenge in couple simple steps:

1. Go on yt and watch so many gay (les too but not two attractive models making out) videos ad you can so recommendation on yt will always show gays.
2. Go to his porn account (I just happened to know his login and password to everything so that’s not a problem) and also watch gay (this time male/male only) videos and like them, comment maybe so it will also jump on in recommendation.
3. Say you are gay. Bonus: Suggest having a gf and say that “those sleepovers you let me go to were total fun”
4. Trick him into watching gay movies(:
“Brokeback mountain” may not be a good to start with, because most people knows it’s gay. Better start with some less known movies) then watch him storm out the room when he reliased what he is watching.
5. Made him read gay ff - must be slowburn. I will tell him that I wrote it and he - as a good father and shit - should support my dreams and read this. Make him fully invested before he reliase it’s gay love story.
6. Find out how many celebrities he likes are gay. Watch movies with those people and when they appear on screen say “Did you know he/she is gay?”
7. Find out how many historical figures and his idols may be gay and destroy his image of them.
8. After this he will probably start to fight: “its not important that he is gay, because he did something and he is my Idol”. Make a face and make him understand what he just said.
9. If 8 happens give him a break because he starts to get it.
10. if 8 does not work just jump straight here and be as gay as possible. Mention things about pride during meals, show how much LGBT community suffered over the time, try to make him understand something (if he doesn’t plan vacation and place him in one room with gay uncle)

(I’m currently at point 2. Revenge Is on)
