the deep well

Trans Lance Fic Part 2

Lance kisses his mama goodbye as he gets out of the car and waves goodbye to everyone who had managed to pile into the car. He holds a small suitcase full of some clothes, his binders, and a doctor’s note to give to the health staff here that will allow him to continue receiving his testosterone shots.

He takes a deep breath, well as deep as a breath can get when your ribs are being compressed, then walks into the Garrison. He makes it to the lobby where a receptionist smiles at him and asks if he is a new student. He nods and gives her a confident smirk. She asks for his name and his smirk wavers a bit. “Lance McClain.” He says and prays that it’s listed.

The woman frowns. “I’m sorry sweetheart but the only McClain listed is a Lacey McClain. ” she says and Lance feels like he might cry at the use of his dead name. “That’s me… I’d prefer to be called Lance though. ” he says shakily. The woman looks surprised at first then looks a little flustered. “I’m sorry Ms. McClain I wasn’t aware that you had a preferred name. ”

Lance feels nauseous at the use of ‘Ms’. “It’s Mr. McClain.” He tells her and tries not to sound as upset as he is. The receptionist now looks very confused then it seems that she remembers something. “Oh, you are the special case we were informed about. I’m so sorry Mr. McClain. Here is your dorm key and schedule, you’ll find that your uniform is on your bed. The head of the health staff is right over there so you can give him your paper work. ” she says and points out a woman.

Lance nods stiffly and takes the key and the schedule then walks over to the woman. She smiles when she sees him. “You must be Mr. McClain. I’m Hilda, the head of our health and medical staff. I understand you have some special circumstances. Let’s go to my office and discuss what we can do for you to make sure your as healthy and happy as possible. ” She says kindly. Lance nods and follows her to her office.

After a long conversation with the Hilda about Lance’s testosterone and other plans to transition, he finally heads to his dorm. He fits the key into the lock and turns it. He opens the door to reveal a large Samoan boy sitting on a bed and reading a cook book. The boy looks up and smiles at Lance. “Hey you must be my roommate! No one can ever pronounce my real name so everyone just calls me Hunk.” He says cheerfully. Lance walks into the room and sets his stuff on his bed. “I’m Lance, it’s nice to meet you.” He smiles back at the larger boy.

It’s about a week after classes start that Lance sees a familiar face. He freezes in the middle of the hallway when he sees Keith and he smiles widely. Lance is about to yell to get Keith’s attention when Keith’s eyes lock with his. The mullet headed boy’s gaze hardens into a harsh glare and Lance frowns. Keith must not remember him and it’s obvious that he does not want anything to do with him.

Lance spends his time at the Garrison trying to be as good as Keith in hopes of earning Keith’s respect and his friendship again. But it seems that he will never be as good as Keith. Keith makes it into the fighter class of pilots while Lance is a measly cargo pilot. Lance is a great cargo pilot, the best in his class but it’s not good enough. He needs to be a fighter pilot. He needs to be at the top with Keith. He needs Keith’s attention. He needs Keith’s respect. He needs Keith.

His quest to please Keith is interrupted when his period makes a sudden return. Lance nearly panics when he pulls down his underwear to find that blood has nearly soaked through. He quickly changed into a clean pair, throws the other pair away, making sure to hide them at the bottom of the trash can. He slips into a pair of black sweats and sprints to the medical Wing of the Garrison. Hilda explains to Lance that his testosterone level needs to be adjusted so she prescribes a higher dose of the hormone. She explains it will probably take at least another month to fully get rid of his period but could take up to two months.

It’s a two and a half weeks later, a week after Keith dropped out, when Hunk and Lance find Pidge on the roof scanning the sky for aliens. A space ship had fallen out of the sky and the knew that had to go see what it was. Of course Keith makes it there first and Lance makes it his mission to impress Keith this time. They find Shiro, the pilot of the Kerberos mission, and help get him back to Keith’s cabin. They discover that a rock formation looks just like the wave of activity that Pidge received so they go check it out. That’s how they end up flying in a blue lion into space and become the paladins of Voltron.

Lance had thought that being stranded in space aboard a castle with Keith would make it easier to get the other attention and gain his respect but boy was he wrong. It seems that the only thing he is able to gain is more and more hatred from Keith.

Lance is confused to say the least, Keith used to love his corny jokes and terrible pick up lines… Lance spends his nights awake, thinking over every little thing that could be making Keith hate him. His insecurities grow quickly which leads to his dysphoria becoming almost suffocating. He hides his insecurity and dysphoria behind more jokes and flirting which only seems to annoy Keith more.

Keith is a little angry, who gave this lanky boy the right to come in and act the way that Lacey did? He isn’t allowed to act like that! It infuriates Keith, no one should be allowed to act like her. Not like the girl who deserved so much happiness and love but didn’t receive it from the world. Keith grows to hate Lance for it. Why does Lance, who acts and looks so much like Lacey, get to live when Lacey no longer does? Keith feels that his memories of Lacey are threatened by Lance and that is why he doesn’t like the boy. He is too similar to the friend he lost and he was not going to make the mistake of getting close to someone again.

(I know the summary of episode one sucked but you all know what happened so… also I know almost nothing happened in this part but I’ll have Part 3 up soon and it’ll be better. Master list Link: )

i dont get why the engineers in prometheus is whitewashing - Theyre aliens and not human ffs.

From this post:

Nonny is a damned dense motherfucker because they aren’t just white skinned they have the white phenotype as well– deep set eyes, aquiline nose, thin lips.

They look like someone crossed Whitey McBasic with one of Whitley Streiber’s grays.

Also, its a deliberate calling to the “Nords” conspiracy about aliens which is ridiculous BS quite literally made up by white supremacists– white coded (aryan in the case of Nords), advanced, seen as godlike, patron to humanity.

Its all kinda obvious. And this is FROM someone who is a massive Alien series fan and loves alien movies, mythos and cryptid shit. You bet your ass I loved Prometheus and Covenant but this bothered the fuck outta me too

So, Nonny, stop acting like a victim. Fact is, depigmented skin and eyes is only around six thousand years old, ten thousand at best. Its a mutation, so, it really shows how much of a normalized supremacist error it is to make the Engineers (based off of Mesopotamian/Akkadian/Sumerian lore no less!!! Point them out on a fucking map showing ancient/gone civilizations, please) deliberate coded with a white/male phenotype that is EASILY recognizeable is something done by a white dude character designer who either consciously or subconsciously believes in a white supremacist patriarchy.

They could have easily been pale without the obvious white phenotype. Damned near every other race on this planet existed before the mutations that triggered depigmentation in humans who migrated north where there was less sunshine and thus were less able to absorb Vitamin D. This mutation is also why said proto-white people developed the ability to digest/break down lactose to also get more nutrition that they weren’t getting frrom the sun unlike their siblings closer to the equator. TLDR: giant alien anglo saxons sends a pretty obvious message to viewers. One we are free to unpack and discuss.

he’s gonna start reciting a poem any minute.

miss me with that “asexual people can be in romantic relationships” rhetoric that’s only being used to justify what they’re doing to jughead on riverdale… yes, asexual people can be in romantic relationships, believe it or not, i am absolutely 100% aware of this. i am not fighting you on that at all. but you know what? i was never talking about asexual people in general. i was talking about jughead. jughead has always been seen as being aromantic as well as asexual, and he, as a character, has always been against dating and relationships to the point that people called him a “woman-hater” for lack of better terms. and while we’re here, i am also fully aware that the first time they’ve used the word asexual was in a recent run of comics. i know. seriously. but if you go back and actually look at jughead as a character you will see that he has always been that way, it’s just the addition of the label that’s new. he would much rather eat a burger than date a girl and i don’t think that is something that should need to be said.

I love how Sportacus is never even slightly surprised when it turns out to be Robbie causing all the trouble around town. I’m like 80% sure he’s playing along with Robbie’s schemes at this point tbh 


The brain seems so simple. It’s pink, rounded, and just sits there inside our heads. But yet, it’s so complex. Thoughts are produced almost instantaneously. Neurotransmitters are sweeping across from one end of the body to another. What would we do without this brain ours? How would we think? How would we be able to experience anything at all?

Amaram: “Old friend, it’s been too long.”
Dalinar: “Too long by far. I’m glad you finally made your way here, after years of promises. I heard you’ve even found yourself a Shardblade.”
Amaram: “Yes. Taken from an assassin who dared try to kill me on the field of battle.”


quiet night

theres just a what-if here about ritsu getting just a bit of psychic empathy and achieving the rest with his writers brain, and theres also a headcanon about mob not being a very good singer or not playing any instrument but being able to whistle very well 

I remember theres a word for that, the very good whistler thing, from a jeffery deaver book Ive read, but I cant find it in my memory anymore

I kinda want it back

Bullet fanfiction welcome: Will being so surprised that Nico is actually a very morning person.

(?? i did not get this?? until now??)

  • will solace knows things about nico. he knows that he like techno pop, that he’s surprisingly good at helping out in the infirmary, that he’s a cat person but get’s along with dogs better, that he loves cooking and makes the best italian dishes, etc.
  • and will solace learns all these things only in the first couple months into their relationship. because they share all day together and they just talk on hours on end and by the end of the day, they’ve learned the most random things about each other.
  • of course, there are things that will just assumes are true. like how his favorite color is probably black judging from his wardrobe and how maybe he likes his coffee dark since he was never a sweets person, and definitely how he’s a night person—because really, why wouldn’t he be?
  • now, when they go on their first mission together, they camp out a lot. 
  • random places they can find, like a spot near the river or in some oddly suspicious cave (will insists that he’s not afraid of bears, but his high pitched shrieking at the crunch of a twig is enough to convince nico otherwise)
  • they’ve never really slept in this type of proximity ever before, but neither of them mind and the mission is exhausting so when nico flops down on his bed immediately after reaching their camp sight, will doesn’t really seem to notice.
  • will, on the other hand, is a night person, contrary to popular belief. sleepless campers will see him silently reading near his cabin at one in the morning and will always look twice because, “the son of freaking apollo is up reading at one past midnight???”
  • anyway, throughout the next few days, will starts noticing that nico’s really cranky during night hours. he goes to sleep early, at least by will’s standards.
  • will, on the other hand, is refining with his fingers a particularly fine strand of grass because there really is nothing better to do out in the middle of literal nowhere.
  • in the mornings, will starts to wake up earlier, adjusting to the timing for the mission’s hours. 
  • however, as time goes on, will starts to notice that nico not only sleeps early, but also wakes up just at the brink of dawn. on one particular day, will wakes up from an the sound of footsteps nearby to find nico situate himself on the stone near them, watching the sunrise as he taps his foot energetically.
  • at first, will wonders if he’s seeing things, and then gets slightly concerned. he calls out his name, and nico looks back, smiling and whispers “good morning”, as if he’s afraid to wake anything up.
  • will walks over to him, sits near him and looks at him. he has that pouty face on, the furrowed brows, and the look in his eyes that naomi gets whenever she’s confused or worried.
  • “what are you doing up at five in the morning? are you okay? did you have a bad dream? what are you thinking about? is there something on your mind?”
  • he asks about a million questions at once. but you can’t blame him can you? the kid wakes up at midday on a normal schedule, he’s about ¾ asleep at the moment.
  • nico hushes him quickly, and even laughs a little to himself, which concerns will even more, and he wonders if this is some type of side effect that children of hades get when their not waken too early.
  • nico just turns to him and shrugs and then looks out at the rising sun. his face gleams and will swears it glows, partly from the sunlight directly blaring at him and partly because nico’s face lights up whenever he’s in awe of something.
  • will tries looking at the sun in the same way nico is. his eyes burn immediately, and he curses his father under his breath. (”so the kid of darkness can look straight at the sun like it’s nothing but the spawn of actual sunlight cant. thanks dad, for once again ridding me of basic apollo kid abilities.”) 
  • “it’s nothing, im just a morning person, i guess.” nico, still admiring the scenery. he turns to will, whose brows are furrowed so tightly and jaw is practically on the floor. the expression, mixed with will trying ever so hard to keep his eyelids open make nico chuckle a little.
  • “you’re a morning person?” nico nods. “YOU?” nico nods again, and smirks a little.
  • will tries to stumble for all the confused remarks, but he ends up a bumbling mess and gives up, far too tired to speak any further and snuggles his head in nico’s lap.
  • nico whispers to will that he’ll have to get up soon, only to be replied with a barely audible mumble. so instead, nico just smiles and runs his hands through will’s sunlit curls that seem more bright and awe worthy than the morning sun

cheesy? overused tropes? lacking in basic creativity? welcome to lily’s writing corner

I guess what bothers me the most about skeptics’ arguments against astrology is the whole thing where they’re like “every sign sounds the same, these traits are things everybody has” because?? If everybody sounds the same to you, what the hell kind of self-absorbed one-dimensional black-and-white world are you living in??? Pay a little more attention when people talk to you lmao
