this was on my draft

like i have my problems with harry potter and jk rowling but it will never stop meaning something to me that rowling was a depressed 30-year single mother living on welfare when she thought of this story, that she was – in her own words– at rock bottom and she managed to put herself out there, to create this brilliant amazing series that has impacted so many people’s lives. there’s something to be said for hope.

“Shard? Meet, Shard!”
“See? You don’t even need to form! You have each other!”

Here’s the full version of the piece I did for the @gemdreams zine! I had a bit of a hard time figuring out what to do for this but I’m happy with what it turned out to be in the end :>

ok klance things I want to happen and if they don’t then what’s the point

  • keith catches lance bridal style. lance comments “my hero” sarcastically/playfully. keith drops him.
  • that or they’re both frozen in shock because wtf just happened and when it registers that keith is holding lance they both get really flustered and begin shouting.
  • the “lance dies” thing is actually a pretty serious thing. my guess is that lance would probably jump in front of a sword for keith. that or the enemy would lash out at lance specifically to get keith alone so they could talk or something. obviously not gonna result in death but tell me it wouldn’t be in character for lance to jump in front of a bullet for keith after everything we were given in season three and with their developments being tied together, esp now that Lance is canonically keith’s impulse control and they’re co-leading the team.
  • let lance give his jacket to keith
  • switch bayards in the middle of battle while they are actually formed into their respective weapons and they don’t change. I’d love to see Lance with a sword and Keith with a gun/sniper rifle.
  • if keith runs away because his galra genes are becoming more prominent and he’s afraid that he’ll lead the enemy straight to his team or his team keeps getting hurt because the enemy is after him specifically, I want lance to go after him and bring him back.
  • a hug!! let them hug!!
  • keith playfully elbows lance in the stomach when they’re on an alien planet and oops that’s an intimate act on said alien planet that’s on par with getting married so all the aliens on said planet think they’re married now.
  • garrison flashbacks I wanna know the exact moment that lance saw keith and thought “he is now my rival”
  • lance referencing the bonding moment not realizing he referenced the bonding moment and keith is just >:O “so you DO remember”

Happy 35th birthday, Sebastian Stan! (August 13, 1982)

I think I might have been a toy maker [if not an actor]. I’m a kid at heart, and maybe some people might say that it’s immature, but the truth is, you gotta recall your childhood because it’s an important time. I guess I’ve always been fascinated by people who make toys, because they have to remain a child one way or another.

Keith: What are your strengths?

Lance: I fall in love easily.

Keith: Okay.., what are your weaknesses?

Lance: Those beautiful eyes of yours.
