i don’t think it’s unintentional at all that keith looks pretty much human despite having galra in his blood. and i think his mother might have not looked very different from most other humans either. in fact, i think it’s possible that she could have been mostly human herself.
everything that went down between the original paladins and zarkon, including the separation of the five lions, the destruction of altea, and the capture of the red lion by zarkon’s forces, would have had to have happened 10,000 years before the show even began.
there’s the theory that the original pilot of the blue lion (the lion that arrived on earth) might have been keith’s mom. (based on the fact that we know 1. keith’s mother is galra, or at least has galra in her blood, since keith’s father is human, and keith has galra in his blood, and keith got the dagger from his mother 2. she had to be on earth at some point to have been keith’s parent and 3. it’s very possible that the blue lion had been piloted by a paladin who was galra the same way the black lion had originally been piloted by zarkon.) BUT if the lion arrived on earth 10,000 years ago, that wouldn’t make any sense.
an alternative possibility would be that the blue lion arrived on earth much much later than that. and maybe its pilot was the descendant of the original pilot (and both the lion and keith’s dagger were passed down every generation or something like that ???) BUT if the lion had been passed down, that would mean each pilot would have known to stay in hiding so that zarkon wouldn’t locate them. which seems, eh. unlikely.
ANOTHER possibility is that the blue lion’s original pilot had been in a state of cryostasis (like allura and coran had been) for the time period it took for the blue lion to arrive on earth. (and woke up still young enough to get with keith’s dad.)
but still. if the blue lion arrived on earth carrying keith’s mom (descendant of the original blue paladin or the original blue paladin herself) then that would have happened only a few years before keith was born. and since keith is only around 17 years old in the show, that wouldn’t fit. as we saw in the first episode, the blue lion had been on earth long enough for ancient legends to be told about it and for magical cave paintings depicting its arrival to be painted on the cave walls far above the pit in which the blue lion remained dormant. if it arrived only about twenty or thirty years ago, that wouldn’t make any sense. so. yeah. also not likely.
WHICH is why i’m thinking, maybe the original paladin of the blue lion was galra, and they made it to earth, got separated from blue, and ended up getting busy with some human. and for all 10,000 of those years that passed, that dagger had been passed down, generation to generation. until it got to keith’s mom (who by that point, would probably look like your average human) and then keith. (???) (maybe???)
anyway … i can’t help but wonder. because, like, how WILD would it be if keith’s bloodline had some sort of connection to the blue lion ??? i mean, blue outright rejects keith and chooses lance over him. keith said those images on the cave walls had never lit up before, for all the times he spent observing them, until lance (and the others) showed up in the cavern. idk, and it would just be so wild that, for once, for something this big, lance had been picked as a first choice over keith.
Guys! Check this ridiculously cool necklace that @metalsmithjenn made for me! I repeat: she made it herself from metal and a stone that I picked out, and it’s the neatest thing I’ve ever seen. I swapped her for a plushie, but I absolutely got the better end of that deal :) Thanks, Jen!
WaFuckingTusi!!! The watusi cows are so cool. I pass these guys everyday on my way in and out of my home. The variety of their horns are groovy. Up close, these guys are impressive….so AWESOME!!!!
Ankole-Watusi Cattle breed The Ankole-Watusi, also known as Ankole longhorn, is a breed of cattle originally native to Africa. Its large, distinctive horns, that can reach up to 8 feet from tip to tip, are used for defense and cooling by blood vesseled honeycombs. Wikipedia
Memorable moments from Green Day in Houston, 3/5/17
-Billy Joe pulled not one, not two, but THREE people on stage. Two of which he basically handed the Mic to.
-the second one that sang was because Billy fucked up on a song and was like “shit I need help. You. Get up here.”
-the third was a girl which he handed a guitar acc was like “play these three chords. Great. Now go.”
-he let her KEEP the fucking guitar
-he told everyone to put away their cellphones because this was a night about love and unity. Not fucking social media.
-he legit screamed “Fuck Trump” at least three times
-And many more where he shit all over the government system
-tre danced along the stage a few times
-Mike skipped in place for like five songs
-played songs from all generations of Green Day
-they sang a variety of covers including: careless whisper, hey Jude, ain’t got no satisfaction, and shout.
-most of which he was rolling on the stage as the rest of the band (aside from tre who was drumming) laid down as well while playing their instruments
-literally spent at least twenty entire minutes just gesturing for us to fucking scream.
-played his guitar not only behind his head, but also with his fucking tongue.
-wore a pride flag that someone threw on stage.
-literally went on like four rants about how we should all love Eachother tonight because there’s so much negativity in the world.
-was just generally a giant fucking cinnamon roll
-introduced everyone in the band except himself? Idk that just really struck me as fucking awesome.
-SCARED THE FUCK OUT OF ME WITH LIKE FIFTY FUCKING FIRE WORKS
-played FOUR ENCORE SONGS
OVER ALL IT WAS JUST A REALLY FUCKING AMAZING SHOW AND EASILY ONE OF THE BEST CONCERTS I HAVE EVER BEEN TO.
You finished buttoning the front of your dress; Tyler’s
favorite. You adjusted the waistband, a sharp knock on your door startled you.
Grabbing your jacket off the bed, you headed to the door. You pulled it open,
revealing Tyler who flashed you a quick smile, the grin dropping from his lips
before crossing the threshold.
“Hey, where’s Charlie?” you asked, leaning up to press a
quick kiss to Tyler’s lips. “I thought he was coming with us?”
“Uh, no. He’s with Jamie tonight.” Tyler said, jamming his
hands in his pockets. “I uh, I needed to talk to you.” he said distractedly,
his eyes fixed on something outside your apartment window; avoiding your gaze.
“Yeah, sure.” you answered, tossing your jacket on the
counter, walking to take a seat on the sofa. Tyler walked to the couch, slowly taking
a seat beside you, careful to sit far enough away from you so the two of you
weren’t touching at all. “You look so nervous, Ty.” you commented, reaching out
to rest your hand on his knee, he repositioned himself, avoiding your touch.
You pulled your hand back, worried. “What’s going on?” you asked.
He shook his head, looking down at his hands. “(Y/N), I
came here to tell you that I can’t do this anymore.” he breathed, finally
turning to face you, tears brimming in his eyes.
God Country by Donny Cates, Geoff Shaw and Jason Wordie is one of the best indie comics Image has out right now. Set in rural Texas, it tells the tale of Emmitt Quinland, a grandfather suffering from extreme Alzheimer’s and dementia, who’s cured by a living sword called Valofax: the god of swords! However the big bad space-god who forged the sword wants it back! It’s an out there story with epic action, but at the same time has a very well grounded human story at its center; full of heart, family, loss, and redemption.
