the threatened

@riana-one​ (at least I assume that’s you on tumblr?) on AO3 prompted: Victoria with a squishy baby angara on her hip. Both Jaal and Liam want kids and domestic fluff is so cute.

So here we go!

A loud, bone-shaking clap of thunder startles Liam awake. He blinks in the darkness of Jaal’s bedroom and looks out the window. Lightning flashes as the storm pours down outside. The roof overhang protects them from most of the rain, but the wind is strong enough that little droplets blow in.

He takes a breath of the cool air. Strange. It almost smells like Earth. Almost - there’s a hint of Havarl’s flowers on the air.

Liam shifts, stretching his legs out, and digs a little further under the blankets. Jaal nuzzles his neck and tightens his arm tightens his waist. Sleep still drifts around the edges of Liam’s vision and he smiles, covering Jaal’s hand with his. When he reaches out with his other hand, he finds nothing but air.

He rubs his eyes, trying to turn the crumpled blankets beside him into their girlfriend. No matter how hard he tries, Victoria is not lying in bed with them.

“Hey,” Liam says, gently nudging Jaal. “Where’s Tori?”

Jaal takes a long, slow breath, and pushes himself up just enough to look over Liam’s shoulder. “That it is an excellent question.”

Liam sits up and blinks away the last bits of sleep. He scrubs his hand over his face.

Jaal reaches out to turn on the lamp, but nothing happens. “Hm,” he says, “the power’s out.”

As if on cue, bright lightning flashes, almost instantly followed by a deafening crash of thunder.

“Nice planet you’ve got,” Liam grimaces as little echoing booms roll through the mountains.

Jaal smiles and sits up beside him. If he noticed Liam’s sarcasm, he ignores it. “It is beautiful, isn’t it?”

Leaning over, Liam kisses Jaal’s unscarred cheek. “It is.” Aside from the wicked thunderstorms, at least. He looks down at the empty space next to him. “Should we go find her?” Victoria is terrible with maps and navigation, but not so terrible that she’d get lost inside a house, even one so big as Jaal’s family home.

“Probably.” Jaal slides out of bed and offers his hand to Liam.

I was trying to design casual outfits for Human Allura and Coran and then thought what mysteries could be under the jacket, then I imagined and I laughed.

If I ever get stuck in space, I want to be wearing that shirt.

Galileo: “The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.”

Reading more into my General Psych book and it is talking about intelligence. Identical twins almost always have the same IQ levels but if they reach that genetic potential they were born with all depends on environmental factors that encourage the child of reaching it. 

By the laws of science Stanley Pines has the same IQ level as Stanford but they were both treated differently in school and home life so they both developed it differently.

Stan was clearly not a book learner. If I had to peg him as anything I would say he is more hands on. He just goes for something without reading the instructions and can probably do it pretty well. Ford is the typical book learner that teachers love.

Home life was all about Ford and how great he was in school and Stan put all his might into boxing once he figured that was something he could do well and get praise for. Then comes everyone called him dumber then Ford so he never really tried to go for the high test scores because he probably (subconsciously) thought he could never get great grades. 

I know it is old news that Stan is super smart like Ford but I like having the science behind it.
