I love the idea of FAHC Jeremy just being an absolute menace and no one realizing it until its too late.
“Oh, there’s a new FAHC member,” they say. “He looks like he’s not good for much more than muscle” or “He can’t be as murder-happy as the Vagabond. He can’t be as unpredictable as Gavin” or “He’s harmless, or at least as harmless as one of them can be.” He’s short and usually smiling, well-built but without the air of pure intimidation that Ryan gives out. He’s not the one that you have to watch out for, surely.
Then he’s sent out on missions and they realize. He’ll buy you a drink and then shoot you in the leg because it was “too good of an opportunity to pass up”. He’ll call a truce and then giggle as he blows up your warehouses just because he can. He’ll promise you he’ll send a message along to his boss and four months later when he’s surrounded by guns he’ll just give you a shrug and a grin and say “I never said when.” He lies just because he wants to, even when it’s obvious, even when there’s no advantage to it, and the worst part is that it doesn’t matter how many people he shoots for fun, how many lies he tells or mind games he plays, everyone still likes him. He’s effortlessly funny, with self-deprication and wry humor that practically forces you to trust him, the kind of guy that seems to be simple at first glance but in reality is anything but. He dyes his hair and smiles at everyone and loves monster trucks but he’s as sharp as a wolf and twice as bloodthirsty, and nobody expected it from the man they called Lil J.
Jason comes up with nicknames in his head for all his siblings. He only uses a couple of them on occasion, but he’s somehow come up with a lot of them. Did he spend a drunk night with Roy or Arty brainstorming them? We may never know.
Dick is ‘Dickie Bird’ ‘Dickie’ ‘Big bird’ ‘dickface’ ‘dickwing’ ‘nightjerk’ and ‘wing’
Tim is ‘Baby bird’ or ‘Red’ when he’s seeing him as a little brother or when he’s talking about him to one of the others. ‘Replacement’ when he’s pissed about something or when he wants to be difficult (#often) or when he’s bantering with him. ‘Tim-bo’ coz his name is tim and he uses a bo staff. ‘Timmybird’ said sardonically and tauntingly at first, but developed into an actual affectionate nickname that tim hates but jay enjoys - jason will sometimes ruffle his hair when he calls him it because Tim’s usually too tired to try and dodge.
Damian is ‘bat brat’ ‘demon spawn’ ‘demon child’ or ‘baby bat’
Steph is ‘eggplant princess’ she’s the only one who actually got to choose her own nickname, but sometimes jay will just call her ‘princess’ which she is surprisingly okay with.
Cass is ‘sis’ or ‘Cassie’.
Barbara is ‘Steel on wheels’ ‘Babs’ ‘Barbie’ or ‘Bat-lady’ as in ‘whatever you say Bat-Lady’.
And Duke. Duke is ‘Hatchling’ ‘kid’ or ‘Bumble Bat’.
carrie fisher isn’t just princess leia. carrie fisher isn’t just an actress we all admire from a famous series of movies made a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. carrie fisher isn’t just another name on the list of shitty things 2016 has done to people i admire.
carrie fisher is a woman who struggled with addiction and mental illness and never sugar coated it - she spoke honestly, openly, about every ugly truth, and made me so much less ashamed of the things i struggle with in my daily life.
carrie fisher is a woman who fought back against body shaming and misogyny, against agesim, who looked at critics and said “yes, i am a woman who has aged, and had children, and struggled with depression and addiction and my body has changed, so you can just shut the fuck up and deal with it”, and it was absolutely beautiful.
carrie fisher is a woman who was placed in the role of “princess” but didn’t conform to the typical hollywood idea of what a princess should be. she’s loud, brash, crass, and unapologetic for being so.
she’s an idol and an inspiration and she’s a woman who saved my life many times just by being who she was and never shying away from it or feeling the need to say sorry. carrie fisher is so much and more and i cannot begin to stomach the thought of 2016 taking her away from me, from her family, from the rest of the world and those of us who love her so dearly.
i love you, space momma. we all do. keep fighting the good fight.
Trini’s parents love Kimberly. Heck, they love all of the Rangers. Just Kimberly, that funny, beautiful, popular girl Trini starts bringing around and studying with, she’s like the face of their daughter’s new social life. She’s so polite and nice and doing a great job at getting their normally taciturn daughter out of her shell. June even goes so far as to hope that she’ll get Trini to stop listening to that audibly offensive death metal!
(Trini only smiles and nods and doesn’t tell her mother that when she’s out of the house they actually study and train and make out to that “infernal” death metal.)
Ever since the Shiro/Keith clip came out I’ve been seeing more and more posts about how “the real Shiro would never treat or talk to Keith like that!!” and I Am Tired Of It.
Did y’all suddenly forget how Shiro reached out to comfort Keith and told him he was proud of him in S3E6?
Did y’all suddenly forget that Keith himself has closed off to Shiro before?
Did y’all suddenly forget that Shiro has, in fact, acted like this before? You know, closing off and changing the subject when he thinks Keith is being stubborn?
It’s like y’all forget how Shiro said he supported Keith’s decision to train with the BOM (I would have been worried if he had outright refused to let Keith do it), just not at the expense of the team. You know, the team Shiro is not the leader of right now? Clone or not, Shiro has legitimate reasons to be upset in that scene. He was captured by the galra again, came back to a team that was functioning well without him, lost his lion and is trying to adapt to all of this. Josh said it a few times on saturday: Shiro believes in Keith and wants this for him. He’d go back to being the black paladin/leader in a heartbeart if he could but he can’t and he’s willing to accept that. But Keith isn’t, because he loves Shiro and knows how much his former position meant to him and it probably feels like he’s undeservingly taking that away from him. It’s kind of frustrating because basically they appreciate and believe in each other so much they both want the other to have this.
Operation Kuron is shady af and yes, he could be a clone for all we know. But the thing is, y’all talk about how much you wanna see Keith and Shiro’s relationship struggle, but as soon as Shiro starts acting like he might not be okay with how things are going he must definitely be a clone? Right.
