Welcome to the Kane Co. Family, Chapter 4: I Killed a Plant from the Inside!!  It Ate Me and I Murdered It!!

On Ao3

Chapter Summary: In which Chuck leads his troops, an announcement comes from on high, Julie gets a pleasant surprise, and Texas plays Enchantment: the Convocation.  Also, the Duke is a petulant man-child, but what else is new?

From a comrade:

You know, I’m pretty much 1000% OK with anyone in Houston jacking a flat screen.

I mean, you’re gonna have multinationals rip rare Earth metals out of Africa at gun point and ship ‘em to China to be assembled into a TV in some factory where they got nets on the roof to stop 'em from jumping off. You’re gonna put it on a boat crewed by a bunch of Filipinos who are gonna find out when they get to port that the boat owner defaulted and isn’t paying 'em, and if they complain they’ll get blacklisted. Slap that shipping container onto a truck where the trucker is in debt and working at almost no profit margin, from an owner-operator scheme, and can’t even unionize because he’s “not a worker”. Slap the TV into some big box store where an 80 year old woman whose benefits got cut is working the register because her son can’t support her any more because his factory job got “outsourced” to prison labor and now he works at a burger joint while pundits shout that if burger flippers wanted better wages they should have learned to work in manufacturing. Now, have a hurricane run through town and flood the place, after fossil fuel companies spent decades paying politicians to ignore the warnings while they rip up the mountains and the prairies, poison the water and the air, and hot-box the whole planet, so we’ve got “100 year” and “500 year” storms happening every couple years.

THEN, you take some guy whose farm went belly up because US government-subsidized corn flooded into Mexico, and whose hometown got overrun by cartel fueled by US drug money, so he ran across a border to make a living in Texas, and he and his family decided not to run from the storm because ICE is deporting every undocumented worker they catch back to God knows what future.

- and THAT motherfucker decides, once the whole city is flooded and everything is hell, “Fuck it, at least I can watch Game of Thrones in HD next season!”.

THAT’S where you draw the line?

keith’s mum headcanons

i’m already in love with this rebel space cat so here are some headcanons about her

  • i love the fandom headcanon that she piloted the blue lion
    • which to some seems unrealistic, especially seeing as voltron kinda died with alfor for ten thousand years bc he hid all the lions and sealed Black away, but what if it was just Blue, Red, Green and Yellow for a bit? their pilots couldn’t form voltron, obviously, but they could still help out the universe here and there; so what if Blue wasn’t originally hidden on Earth, and keith’s mum found her, and yeah
    • and then she came to earth, met Texas Kogane (i will forever call him that), and when shit went down and she was forced to leave (either the galra or the other humans found out about their relationship) she left the lion there, hoping that her son would find it when he grew up
  • she was an amazing pilot (i mean, keith obviously got his natural talent from somewhere)
    • Texas Kogane can’t pilot for shit
  • what if she had the same kind of personality as lance? the joker of the team, the one who boosts everyone’s morale, but also with that side of seriousness and responsibility that i s2g if we don’t get in season 3 imma scream
  • she’s also adorably violent
    • i mean, she gave her son a fucking knife
      • “honey, that’s sweet of you, but babies here don’t get weapons so early on… or at all…” “don’t be ridiculous, he loves it!”
    • she gave the other pilots all of the noogies
      • if they refused her noogies she’d pretend to pout like the dork she was
  • when she was forced to leave earth, she felt so guilty leaving her son behind, and hoped that one day she could return and be the mother he didn’t have

feel free to add on!
