the ship that could of had it all

Rey and Finn as bounty hunters

for @finnreyfridays

An abandoned orphan, Rey grew up on Jakku. In this arid wasteland, it was every man for himself and Rey quickly learned to provide for herself. At first, she was too young and weak to earn her food, and had to rely on scraps. As years passed, she became stronger and smarter, becoming one of the best scavengers on Jakku. Unfortunately, Plutt had no interest in paying his scavengers according to size of their catch, his entire business relying on people’s competitiveness fueled by despair. So, no matter how big the piles of metal were, Rey was always hungry.

One day, she decided she had enough of it. She knew how to fight, she was smart and a fast learner, she could fly all kinds of ships and speedsters. She could leave this awful planet if she wanted to, and never be hungry again. She was 20, now, and if after 15 years her family still wasn’t there, they either didn’t care about her or were dead. So one night, she stole Plutt’s most famous ship, the Millenium Falcon, and left. Becoming a bounty hunter wasn’t planned, really. The day after leaving Jakku, in a remote space station she saw a poster of a wanted man. The prize was enough to buy food for an entire week, and she managed to find him in 24 hours. From that moment on, she became an efficient bounty hunter thanks to her innocent face, her knowledge of several languages, and her research skills.

Finn was taken from his family, conditioned and trained to be a Stormtrooper by The First Order. But when he was ordered to killed innocent people, he realized that he couldn’t do it, that he couldn’t keep working for them. So he defected, saving a Resistance pilot and escaping with him. He dropped the pilot off on Jakku, where he could find his droid, and took off. He went to the Outer Rim, working odd jobs and changing locations every few weeks. He just wanted to live peacefully and not have anything to do with The First Order. And if sometimes he screamed himself awake at nights, taunted by dreams that felt like memories, well no one had to know.

But one day, as he was working in an inn, a man barged in, threatening everyone with his blaster. His combat training kicking in, Finn easily disarmed him and knocked him out. Turned out the man was wanted for armed robbery and murder on 3 different planets, and Finn received a nice amount of money for his effort. He realized that living his life scared and hidden wasn’t what he wanted. He wanted to help people, to use everything the First Order had taught him, but to do good and not evil. He could arrest criminals, and even get paid for it. So he took on the job, using his tactical and fighting skills to catch bad guys (but always making sure to check that they are real criminals and not regular people who got flagged as criminals because they dared to oppose the First Order). He took on a new name and kept his face hidden to stay under the radar, especially as his bounty hunter reputation grew.

And eventually, Finn and Rey find themselves working on the same case without knowing it : a dangerous arsonist who has a very high prize on her head. But just as Rey is about to catch the criminal off-guard, after days of pretending to be a clueless waitress, there’s an explosion. Turns out it’s a fake one, and a part of Finn’s plan to create confusion to be able to catch the arsonist. But with Rey getting in the way (because there’s no way this random guy snatches her prize when she worked so hard for it), she ultimately gets away. After hours of fighting about what happened, Rey and Finn decide to work together to catch the arsonist. And even though it’s supposed to be a one-time thing, they click so well together that they decide to become partners. Out loud, they say it’s because they are more efficient as a team, but the truth is, they might be falling for each other.

hey, salty folks.

This blog started out as three silly kids with significant age differences deciding that they could do something that they loved for the fandom. Each one had their own specialities, their favourite ships and characters and moods, and all three of them loved this fandom, no matter how toxic and convoluted it got. They love these characters.

Here we are. 365 days, 2688 followers, one hiatus and nearly 1109 aesthetics made, if my estimation is correct (which it DEFINITELY may not be). Granted, not all of these were requests, but most were. Holy salts.

We’ve had delightful admins, Sea Salt, one of the founders, Iodized Salt, truly the most aesthetic of us all, Smokey Salt, the snark and sass to boot, Refined Salt from our first Competition, who made stunning things. And of course, two lovely admins who are both Table Salt, the latter still with us, and both adorable beans. 

And of course. The most important part of this blog is YOU. *audience groaning in the background*

You guys have reblogged and liked and commented and replied and told people about us, but most importantly, you gave us the fuel we needed doing this for one year (because as we display quite publicly, this isn’t easy work). Thank you for your ideas, the beautiful, the cute, the badass- all of ‘em. 

OKAY, NOW THAT THAT’S OVER. 

We aren’t just going to write some sap and let this important day go, oh no!

- For any three requests that she gets, Rocksalt will write a short drabble for any ship/characters. 

- For any three requests that she gets, Kosher Salt will make a doodle for any ship in the canon AU. Less popular ships will be favoured !

- And we have some #throwback posts comin’ your way. 

Not to mention that the ask is open to admin questions indefinitely!

                                          Long Live the Salt !

I’m assuming you mean malec, nonny.

send me a ship and a numbered prompt!


I know you told me to stop thinking about you, but I can’t get you out of my mind.

“I got suspended again,” Jace said through the phone, his voice numb. “Got in a fight.”

Alec inhaled sharply. It was the fourth time in five months that Jace was punished for misbehaving at school, but Alec couldn’t blame his brother one bit. If it had been a hard time for all of them, he could barely imagine how Jace was holding up. When Maryse and Robert adopted him, he was Jace Wayland, sole survived a fire that had taken everything from him. After years trying to adjust as a Wayland and a Lightwood, Jace found out through the news the man responsible for his parents’ death, Valentine Morgenstern, was not only being released from prison but was also saying he was Jace’s biological father.

And then, after a DNA test, Jace found out he wasn’t neither a Wayland nor a Morgenstern, but a Herondale. Valentine had taken him from the hospital as a new-born and exchanged the Wayland boy by him. That psychopath had killed everyone in his way and left Jace wracked in the process. No wonder he had been acting so rashly lately. Skipping classes, getting himself in fights, ignoring tests. Jace’ senior year was crashing and burning.

“That’s not the worst part,” Jace kept going. “Mr. Bane wants to set a meeting with my family because he is worried. I told him to take his pick, there’s a bunch of families to choose from.”

Beneath the casual tone, Alec could sense how tense Jace sounded. How wounded. “Isn’t he your art teacher?” He remembered Jace and Izzy talking about the new art teacher that would surely be fired for always talking shit about the school’s administration. They both seemed a little sad that it could happen.

“Yeah. He’s cool. He told me to bring someone I trusted so… Can you make it? Thursday, 3 pm?”

Why you got to be so mean, Spirk shippers?

Read a long fic last night.  Labeled explicit McSpirk.  Posted this spring, said it won the best Trek novel of 1986 somewhere.  HEY WOW OKAY YAY!  And I was into it, getting along well.  I noticed a strong Spirk bias in the sex, but there was also a strong McKirk element, and McCoy was being treated very well, by and large– except he and Spock had a rabid antipathy toward sexual interaction even when sharing Kirk in bed.  Then it got to a point where Spock decided he wanted McCoy– and the author abruptly ended it.  Sent Spock off to Gol and McCoy off God knows where, and ended the story with a smug note saying ‘I don’t believe in Spones.  I only ship Spirk.  I just wanted to see if I could force them all to want each other.”  The author apparently considered it a job well done.


And I just.  ARGH.  *bonks head on desk*  It was really good up to that point, but I’m not bookmarking or re-reading because that was like eating a nice dinner while looking forward to and saving room for the chocolate lava cake you’d been told was coming, only when it came time for the cake, you just got handed a clean baking pan with all the ingredients set inside it, neatly separate, unmixed and uncooked, and a note saying  “FUCK YOU, CHOCOLATE LAVA PEOPLE!  I JUST WANTED TO SEE IF I COULD ASSEMBLE THE INGREDIENTS FOR A CAKE!” 

It ruined the whole experience for me.  :( *CRIES*

Can I get a ship? I'm 5'7, dark brown hair, light brown eyes. I like driving around at night, listening to music. I absolutely love thunder and lightning storms. I mastered the art of turning my emotions on and off whenever I want. I like being alone and reading. I love to walk in the rain and I'm basically nocturnal. Thanks..

thank you for requesting and waiting so long!

I ship you with Dallas!
He’s always willing to drive around in the middle of the night with you, and can listen to music all day. When you showed him your love for thunder and lightening storms, he was truly fascinated because he had never paid much attention to them before. He’s very jealous that you can control you emotions so easily, and wishes he could do the same. You two would go on random adventures together and sometimes find yourselves in sticky situations, but hey, it is Dallas Winston we’re talking about here.

Saturn

You taught me the courage of stars before you left.
How light carries on endlessly, even after death.
With shortness of breath, you explained the infinite.
How rare and beautiful it is to even exist.

- “Saturn” by Sleeping At Last

“He promised!”, the younger man cried. A heartwrecking, choked sound. “He promised he’d come back!”

Tears seeped through the fabric of Ryou’s shirt and slender fingers dug into his back with a force he’d never thought Keith possessed. There was nothing he could do. Nothing he could say. No support he could’ve offered. He could only wrap his own arms around the smaller figure and hold him.

It had been two months. Two months since Keith fled the constricting walls of the Galaxy Garrison and vanished into the cold desert night. Two months and twenty-two days since Iverson’s spokesman announced the Kerberos mission was a failure. Two months and twenty-nine days since the comms of his brother’s ship went dead.

Noone knew where Keith went that night, except for Ryou. There was only one place in the world Keith would seek out for shelter. It was the only place Takashi had never shared with his twin. Because it was their place. Their shelter. Keith and Shiro. Only them. And Ryou had respected that, content with the fact that his brother had finally found love, even if Takashi himself hadn’t known that back then.

Now that Takashi was gone, he couldn’t help but venture out into the desert more and more often. He felt adrift and numb, left in a state of levitation before reality would finally come crashing in. Always looking for that special place that held so many memories of his brother. The shack.

Packed with supplies - food, water, wool blankets, lamp oil, a notable stock of lighters and all the little things Keith may or may not need by now - Ryou had steered his black hoverbike away from the Garrison this morning and straight into the unforgiving heat of the desert. Always looking for that one spot on the map that still held some of his brother’s very soul. That one damned spot that Ryou knew he should never seek out. For it held the only tangible evidence of his brother’s death. His absence at Keith’s side. And he knew this would break him.

When he finally found the shack, he knew Keith was there before he even saw him in person. The red hoverbike, parked right infront of the small porch, gave him away. Its black twin’s engine purred and finally went silent under Ryou. Before Kerberos, before everything went down the drain, the red bike had belonged to Takashi. A gift, Ryou had made for him. He still remembered the face Taka made when he’d seen his birthday present. Now that day seemed eons away… Surreal and alien like memories of a life that belonged to somebody else.

Keith opened the front door before Ryou could even make it to the porch. And for one moment it seemed like the world had come to a halt, remembering that there was something missing, before it started turning again with cold, regardless indifference. Feigning ignorance towards two now incomplete and broken beings. The universe had greater things to take care of.

Seeing Ryou - the spitting image of his lost brother - must’ve been the last straw. Keith hadn’t cried. Not when Ryou had called him after the ship went silent, not when the announcement came that all crew members were believed to be dead. Not even when he had left the base. He had punched people. He had seethed with rage and he had broken things, but never cried. Now however…

“He promised!”, the younger man cried. A heartwrecking, choked sound. “He promised he’d come back!”

Now, after three months, shock and numbness, disbelief and repression finally faded… Keith cried.

And it broke Ryou…

___

So…. uh… this… this got out of hand? All I wanted was to express my headcanon that Ryou and Keith knew eachother from their time at the Garrison and that Ryou visited Keith after he got expelled. And that they both mourn Shiro together. But somehow I ended up writing way more than I had planned. xD Oh well…

The new trailer for s3 kinda left me adrift because WHAT THE FUCK. Why they keep doing this to me with every new season?! Where’s Shiro? Why’s he not in the trailer?! Why can’t we just… have him back and be save for once? Not knowing if my poor baby survives every new damn season has me stressing like fuck! So I felt like drawing Keith coping with losing Shiro. And then I ended up drawing this and feeling bad for poor Keith! Now I feel like I want to cry my eyes out…

Pidge: Ok, so don’t get too excited, but I’ve worked out a way to connect the laptop to the internet…
Lance: Pidge how the quiznak did you think I was not going to get excited about this?!?!?!
Hunk: Anything I can help with?
Pidge: Ok, so the thing is that from our end it’s pretty simple right, I mean it’s just a case of sending and receiving correctly coded signals, and my laptop has the inbuilt hardware for all that. The real problem is that we’re light years away, and even with the ship’s range, it’d take years for our signal to reach Earth, and we can’t use the speed-enhanced Altean frequencies because it has to fit in with the existing architecture, and then coming back there isn’t enough range anyway and-
Keith: Pidge, breathe
Pidge: …Anyway, if we had a way to transport the signals instantly we could simply relay them back and forth through, say, a wormhole specifically designed to transport waves rather than matter?
Hunk: But the only way to do that is if….
Pidge: … yeah
Shiro:
Lance:
Keith:

Shiro: I can’t believe you’re seriously debating asking the princess to use her Altean energy so the castle can get a wifi signal
Shiro: *leaves*
Other paladins: *ashamed shuffling*
Five minutes later
Shiro, running back into the room: SHE SAID YES!!

*spoilers for GotG Vol 2*

I think what really upset me was that Rocket already had to watch Groot die. Like I know he saved him and we’ve all been blessed™ with baby Groot, but just when Rocket felt most alone/most misunderstood, suddenly Yondu came along and turned out to be that one person that can really relate to what the poor animal had to live with his whole life.

And when Yondu told Rocket that he needed to stay behind to help Quill, I could see that Rocket knew: Quill was the only one who would make it back to the ship.

And get this, when everyone yelled at Rocket and asked him where Quill was, he just said “I can only lose one friend today.” I wondered if he was talking about Quill, but what if he meant Yondu? He knew that Yondu went to save Quill. Which means he believed that Quill, at least, would return. He could tell by the look on Yondu’s face that Yondu was going to sacrifice himself to get Quill out of there alive.

Just like Groot did the first time.

Except Rocket couldn’t save Yondu like he saved Groot

In general there is like. a whole category of Voltron angst premises that utterly fails to make me feel anything because it often severely underestimates the strength of the characters that it proposes to be breaking.

Like… Listen. Lance pretty dang likely had internal injuries and had spent a pretty impressive amount of time unresponsive and he woke up like that and shot Sendak in the shoulder before nearly back out again. This tells us Lance woke up, probably in no small amount of pain, probably pretty loopy since he remembered absolutely none of it afterwards, and the absolute first thing that occurred to him to do is Sendak was right there and he had a clear shot so, fuck that guy. He got in that situation in the first place because he saw a bomb going off and his first priority was to protect Coran- who at the time he’d known for… days, maybe? 

Pidge, the fourteen-year-old, who was pretty much entirely alone on the castle during that same time, having just lost contact with Allura, losing Rover and then hearing Shiro get tortured by Sendak- still kept her head about her enough to try and bait Sendak off with a hologram and was a major part of that fight. I mean. literally, take this emotionally compromised kid and go “you’re officially alone on a spaceship with murderous adult soldiers. They have your friends. They’re hurting your friends. You are the only one in position to do anything. Have fun.” And she won

Keith had his shoulder hacked pretty impressively in the first room of the Trial of Marmora and was given multiple opportunities to bail with a pretty clear pattern that the next room would be worse and have more attackers and Shiro states it as a given that Keith will not give up. Kolivan unambiguously tells him going in this is a life-or-death scenario. This is also Keith who willingly soloed freaking Zarkon with Coran actively telling him that he had no chance of surviving that fight because Zarkon is not getting the Black Lion.

Allura destroyed the last thing she had of her father in order to protect her team and let herself be captured by Zarkon in order to protect Shiro. She caught her second wind and held out against Haggar as best as she possibly could even knowing those odds were not good.

Coran picked a fight with Zarkon’s entire fleet piloting a ship ten thousand years old, alone, and did pretty dang good

Hunk actively, voluntarily, and enthusiastically picked a fight with a planet-eating monster stated to be one of the most dangerous things in space and long before that, all of his misgivings about signing up to save the universe evaporated like morning dew in the Sahara as soon as he saw what Shay and her people were going through. 

A lot of “angst” content seems to really disrespect or even ignore that these people are fighters. Survivors. These aren’t people who flake under pressure. In Shiro’s case, he literally never would have made it if he was. We see that at his worst, during his missing year, when he was utterly baffled by the idea anyone would help him and was pretty unsubtly about to be knocked out and experimented on- he was full of fight. There wasn’t much he could do but he wasn’t going down easily and if nothing else, the fact that there were two good-sized soldiers in full armor in the room taking the role of sedating him would tell us that Shiro didn’t exactly obediently walk to that room in the first place.

I see a lot of stuff that acts like Lance could get captured and in the time it’d take the team to get to him he could be ‘turned to the dark side’ or broken as a person and it’s like… the empire had a solid year to work on Shiro when the latter had the assumption that no one who would want to help him would even have the technology to reach him or even know he was alive in the first place and the empire didn’t win. What honestly makes you think they could take a month and destroy any of the team?

jin: as soon as tears gathered in the corners of your eyes, he immediately shut his mouth, dropping his end of the argument. he’d pull you in a tight hug whispering in your ear, “i didn’t mean it princess, i’m so sorry.” and he wouldn’t stop apologizing until you told him that it really was okay.

jungkook: jungkook would be mad at himself first, angry that he had made his babygirl cry. he’d shush you quietly and bring you to sit down on the couch and pull you into his lap. he’d hold you tight against him and whisper how sorry he is and how much he loves you. when your tears stop, he’d place a kiss on your hair, continuing to hold you in his grasp.

The Ruby Compass is the gem that the boys on the Chrono “kidnapped” Melissa for… “Kidnapped”, since she was totally up for the idea of going on an adventure. Shortly after being aboard, she was locked in a cell, though Milo and Diogee visited her the first night she was there. It was during that time that Milo told her who they were looking for: Melissa’s own inspiration and hero, Sir Orton Mahlson.

Zack on the other hand, did not want her on the ship, and was irritated that Milo shared some info on their mission with her.

Sort of the first interaction all three of them have together in the entire story. Milo hits it off really well with her, but Zack doesn’t. Melissa expected him to respond with a groan that she could stay, but he had more exhaustion in his voice than she had anticipated.

Mysteries aboard the Chrono, which Melissa is determined to unwravel. 

Humans are storytellers

(Sorry if this has been done before)
What if humans aren’t the burly space orcs, we are essentially these useless little squishy things that kind of follow the aliens around. The aliens don’t really mind, the humans aren’t stupid and can be useful around the ship so why not? One night planet side they start a bonfire, and the human suggests they tell ghost stories. The aliens go one by one and their stories typically go something like “Xirnith was walking to his abode when he was attacked by a bandit, Xirnith couldn’t defend himself and perished”. All the aliens stories are extremely basic, and just generally shitty. Then it is the humans turn, they weave an epic story that is 20 minutes long. It could be the tell tale heart, or the plot to the ring. The aliens crew mates had never heard such vivid storytelling! They are all scared out of their minds, and later that night the 1.5 ton Rhygorn is too scared to sleep alone and stays in the human’s room. Think about it, storytelling is uniquely human amongst all species on Earth. Other alien species might have the capacity for storytelling but it might not be a core part of their identity like with humans.

OKAY I HAD SOME IDEAS FOR A STAR WARS AU HEAR ME OUT

Vex and Vax

  • Vex and Vex left their home planet as soon as they became legal adults by stowing away aboard a ship that was headed out from the Core towards the Mid Rim.
  • Vex fell in love with flying while traveling through space, so at the first planet they reached, she split up with Vax and enrolled in a pilot’s academy. She was a natural and passed her certifications with flying colors. Eventually she managed to scrape together enough money to buy an old junker that she affectionately named “Trinket”.
  • Vax, on the other hand, continued to planet hop, eventually getting involved with seedier and seedier company and picking up a few tricks. He began taking out bounties on low level targets, and scraped together a living.
  • He became involved with a ring of bounty hunters who called themselves the Clasp, led by a notorious figure who called herself the Raven Queen. The Raven Queen took significant interest in Vax, and outfitted him with blaster resistant armor pieces and a set of vibroshivs. She paid him a significant salary, and in return he ran…errands for her.
  • Eventually he and Vex reconnect, and she essentially flies the getaway ship when he needs a quick escape.

Percy

  • Percy’s father Frederick was the senator for the planet Taldorei. He spent his childhood at Whitestone castle located on one of Taldorei’s moons, researching and developing better weaponry for Taldorei’s army. 
  • One time Frederick took the whole family to visit Coruscant when he had to attend Senate sessions for a full month. Percy enjoyed the enormous libraries located in the Capitol, but was otherwise relatively bored by all the politics.
  • On the way back, another political family asked for permission to board their ship, citing mechanical problems with their own transport. Upon boarding, Lord and Lady Briarwood, Dr. Anna Ripley, and a few Taldoreian insurgents took control of the ship and kept the family on board for weeks, killing them off one at a time. 
  • Percy was kept alive because Dr. Ripley discovered his weaponry designs and believed he could be useful. Eventually he managed to free Cassandra and himself. As they were chased all the way to the escape pods, Cassandra was shot in the back and fell behind just as the pod was launched. 
  • For the next few years, he drifted through the galaxy, trying to scrape together enough information and make contacts to help him take down the Briarwoods, who took his father’s place in the Senate.

Scanlan, Pike, Grog

  • Scanlan and Pike are from the same war torn planet. Pike worked for several years as an army medic, before she eventually realized that the civil war engulfing her planet would continue until both sides destroyed each other entirely. 
  • Feeling that her services as a well trained, highly skilled doctor would be better utilized elsewhere, she managed to get passage aboard one of the last transports off her home world.
  • Scanlan became a slicer instead of a soldier. As the war progressed, he honed his ability to hack into all different sorts of technology until he was able to gain access to nearly any classified information he wanted. 
  • For years he played a double and triple agent for both sides of the conflict, crafting dozens of identities for himself and distributing information to the highest bidder.  
  • Unfortunately, his deception was almost simultaneously discovered by prominent figures on both sides of the war, and he only barely managed to escape with one last fake I.D. on board the same ship as Pike.
  • After a few days of travel, their ship hit a gravity mine and was forced out of hyperspace. A band of enormous Goliath pirates led by Kevdak forced their way into the ship and proceeded to loot all the ships provisions. Whoever they discovered, they slaughtered. Pike and Scanlan ended up hiding in the same storage closet for hours before they were found by one of the pirates.
  • When Grog saw the two small gnomes huddled in a closet, he couldn’t bring himself to kill them like he had seen his uncle do to all the others. Disgusted by his nephew’s mercy, Kevdak and the other pirates beat Grog to a pulp. Pike and Scanlan escaped in the chaos that followed.
  • After thoroughly looting the transport, the pirates shipped out, leaving Pike, Scanlan, and Grog behind. Pike, who had worked with even more serious injuries in less favorable conditions, was able to stabilize Grog until an emergency response team picked up their distress beacon.
  • They’ve been traveling together ever since, picking up jobs from Scanlan’s underworld contacts, with Grog acting as Scanlan’s body guard and Pike as the team doctor.

Keyleth

  • Keyleth was born on Zethra, a planet beyond the Outer Rim and outside Republic jurisdiction. As a result, despite being born with strong Force abilities into a prominent family, she was never discovered by the Jedi.
  • Her mother was also Force sensitive, and was also never discovered. When Keyleth was three years old, there was an accident involving a loss of control where her mother almost caused a pillar to collapse on Keyleth. Her mother left the planet to venture into the more populated areas of the galaxy, searching for someone who could help her get her abilities under control.
  • Her mother left her a necklace with a green kyber crystal, which is all Keyleth has to remember her by.
  • As Keyleth grew older, her abilities became harder and harder to manage, just like her mother’s. She could levitate objects and could sense the minds of the living creatures around her, but sometimes she would lose control of herself which often resulted in unintentional property damage.
  • At her father’s urging, Keyleth took one of the planet’s few ships capable of space tavel and set off towards Coruscant. 
  • Along the way, she got into numerous scrapes that she just barely managed to escape from due to her limited Force abilities before being discovered by Vex and Vax and teaming up with them.

For two years I worked as an island clearer.  You know those small, fancy, artificial islands off the coast of the Dubai?  Well, every once in a while someone rich would order a customized island in the shape of their choosing.  Maybe it’s a rose for their wife or a face or a turtle.  So the other guys go in with their sand, make the island to the shape required, and then the client is called and told that their custom island is completed.  But sometimes the client says they don’t want the island any more.  That’s where I came in.  Our company was never mad - I mean, in this high-profile island generating industry, you have to be customer-centric.  Just because someone doesn’t want a custom island now doesn’t mean they don’t want one later.

Anyway, my job was to go in with this ship that basically looked like it was half-bulldozer half-barge and clear all the sand off the top until it sunk back beneath the waves and disappeared forever.  I was the only person in the company who knew how to do this job correctly, and I presume the only person in the world as well.  Sure, the island builders could make the island, but they were absolutely pathetic at clearing them. So I guess you could say I had job security.  Anyway, that wasn’t important.  What was important was that I had fun doing it and helped improve the world. Follow your passions!  You never know what great treasures life has in store for you.

So I thought about it, then I had a chat about it, and then I was like yeah I could ship that and next thing I know I was staying up all night making a comic.

I figure that like Teruki, Ritsu puts up a front most of the time, so someone being able to read his mind is an intimidating notion. However unlike Teruki Ritsu is desperate to be understood so there is a certain element there that is pretty tempting to allow. Super risky, but tempting.

Takenaka obviously has a thing for school idols.

A Eulogy for all the Homestuck ships that didn't make it.

Normal Horoscope:

Aries: The stars recommend treating yourself. Well, they’ve sorta been screaming that since this morning and have not stopped. Please treat yourself.

Taurus: Moths are drawn to light. What are you drawn to? What could be used to lure you into a trap?

Gemini: The ottomans had it figured out. No furniture, just pillows. Do that but the emotional version of that.

Cancer: Every carpet is a vast forest for tiny inhabitants. Consider what you lie host to.

Leo: All Leos should fortify their eastern front against Japanese arquebuseer units. Leos should use the high ground and their more advanced navy to their advantage.

Virgo: Improvisation is all well and good, but improvisation with style wins hearts and minds.

Libra: Currents sway one way and back again in time with the moon. A ship caught in riptide is only waltzing with the moon.

Scorpio: Tomorrow you will realize just how erotic cabinetry can be.

Ophiuchus: You grip and you grip and you grip to how the world must be. You grip so hard it pops.

Sagittarius: Restaurant supply stores sell ice cream by the gallon. Do with this what you may. Dont get into any trouble.

Capricorn: Be polite. It makes it hit harder when you call someone a cockwagon.

Aquarius: Keep your receipts. You never know when the tax man comes calling. You never know when you need to exact your revenge on someone.

Pisces: Most places have a spirit to them. If it looks hurt, beware. Injured spirits are things of wrath and hatred.
