tagging it though

anonymous asked:

Who do you ship Lotor with in the series?

Honestly, nobody. I mean, it’s pretty rare for me to get into a ship at all, much less for a character we haven’t seen yet. We don’t have any idea what Lotor’s like yet, or what age he is. I might take a shine to a ship once we have more of a sense of that.

At this point, I don’t really like the shipping him with Lance, though that’s nothing against the ship itself as much as a lot of the fan-content I’ve seen for it makes me really uncomfortable. Like if their dynamic is much more that they’re a couple of slightly over-dramatic sass buckets who aren’t entirely sure what to make of each other I could see it a lot more, but having Lotor like. abducting Lance or injecting romantic overtones into hostage situations makes my soul depart my body about as rapidly as content shipping Shiro with Sendak. 

The only Voltron ships I guess I’m into, tentatively:

Shiro and Allura

Keith and Lance, though I’m very particular about how it’s handled

I’m vaguely intrigued by the idea of Coran and Alfor having had something between them and with about that level of energy, I’ve speculated about the idea that if Lotor does turn out to be half-Altean in this continuity, Haggar’s the most likely candidate for mom but I could also see either of those relationships (Coran and Alfor, Zarkon and Haggar) as purely platonic it’s just kinda. what direction are you taking it in.

and… that’s about it. I’m mostly ambivalent to other ships, though I have a personal discomfort with shipping Shiro with the other paladins, particularly Keith.

JJ’s Crossing Himself Isn’t Religious

I’ve seen a couple of things about how JJ might be Catholic because of this:

and I’ve also seen a couple of people say that it’s weird because most Catholics don’t cross over the bellybutton (except for Russian Catholics, apparently), and the YOI staff probably messed something up there.

It’s not. A religion thing. Not this one. When I first saw him do this, my first thought was they did not just do that. The cross thing is actually a figure skating thing, although as far as I know, only one skater actually does it regularly.

That skater being none other than Yuzuru Hanyu, reigning Olympic and GPF champion, and the former World champion (current reigning Worlds Silver Medalist).

(watch the first couple of seconds) yeah i know they’re both purple that’s just an unfortunate coincidence i swear

Anyways Yuzu does the cross thing as an axis reminder: keep your back straight, shoulders perpendicular, arms tucked. He was asked that in an interview once and he said:

“That’s not a sign of the cross. The first vertical line is to check my vertical body line. The two horizontal lines I draw across my body are to straighten out my upper body core…“

tld;r: The staff know what they’re doing and JJ is reminding himself to stay on axis during his jumps.

cole sprouse really out here serving LOOKS 

first we got the young james potter 

next is pride and predjudice lookin headass 

lastly we got the beauty and the beast “no one gets those beauts like gaston” look

damn younger me was rooting for the wrong sprouse 

hi as non americans and specifically as white non americans we need to do better than saying “all americans are idiots they all fucked up”. nah. statistics (unsurprisingly) show white people did this. american poc did everything they could to stop this from happening and they are fearing for their lives right now. we owe it to them to acknowledge that it was white people who fucked everyone over.

My life goal is to adapt every meme

Dating, Start!

There wasn’t enough content of my ot3, so I made some

I imagine after they reach the surface, both sans’s relationship with toriel and grillby develop at the same time, until he realizes he’s sorta kinda dating both of them now whoops???  But grillby and toriel get along really well anyways, so they’re happy to hang out all the time and go on dates together and take up all the room on the bed so sans is trapped in an inescapable but very comfortable fire/skeleton/goat sandwich.  It’s all very good and sometimes in small moments like this sans can hardly believe these two amazing people even want to be part of his life.

Bonus sort of process pic at the bottom?  I tried shading in monochrome then overlaying color on top of it, rather than taking the time to individually select all my colors.  I wouldn’t say it saved me time but it did make my colors look more unified.

on a scale of snape to snicket, how well are you gonna treat the orphaned kids of the married woman you loved?
