my headcanon of jack aggressively supporting the samwell women’s hockey team is really important to me. consider:

  • jack routinely parenting the smh team into going and cheering the ladies on. they usually sit at the front of the students’ section
  • shitty is really into it and buys the jersey of his fave swh player and is predictably obnoxious in an endearing way
  • don’t worry, she knows him at this point and it’s cool
  • jack arranging practices with the ladies because while his guys are good, they can always learn something about speed and dexterity from the swh team
  • jack taking appropriate opportunities to talk up the swh and how talented they are
  • when asked if he’s trying to lend his celebrity to women’s sports he just replies “equality is always important, but they don’t need me to tell you how good they are. their 29-0 record last season speaks for itself”

here’s my cover of issues by mindless self indulgence! sorry for the delay in uploads.

sorry for the couple mistakes, i get really nervous when i record.


Tropaeum Alpium (Victory Monument of the Alps)

La Turbie, France


49 m. in height

The Trophy was built in honor of the emperor Augustus to celebrate his definitive victory over the 45 ancient tribes who populated the Alps. The Alpine populations were defeated during the military campaign to subdue the Alps conducted by the Romans between 16 and 7 BC.

When built the base measured 35 meters in length, the first platform 12 meters in height, and the rotunda of 24 columns with its statue of an enthroned Augustus is 49 metres high

I would love to hear what some of your FAVORITE FAVORITE Matt headcanons are! I write a lot of Matt-centric fics, and it's really fun and helpful to hear other folks' Matt-headcanons, since so much of his character is open for interpretation.

I have quite a few headcanons for him that I’ve seen from other people and a few I’ve come up on my own, so this is gonna be a mix of both

  • He’s around Shiro’s age (25, not 6), probably anywhere from 6 months-2 years younger tho
  • He’s super gay
  • I love the trans boy Matt headcanon, but I also love demi-boy Matt, non-binary boy/non-binary Matt, just not cis Matt is good
  • I’ve seen a few posts discussing his middle name and I 100% agree that his middle name would be the name of a famous scientist 
  • He’s still a cadet bc he focused more on his research rather than rank
    • Or, the cadet uniform could be same uniform the scientists wear
    • This is one that I’m still unsure about tbh, but I know he’s not a cadet bc he’s a minor bc come on y’all, they wouldn’t send a minor- a child- in to space on a government mission
  • He probably skipped a grade or two when he was younger, but stayed enrolled in the Garrison longer to get higher degrees (masters & maybe doctorate)
    • He might have been working on either of those degrees while on the Kerberos mission
  • When he was chosen for the mission a few of his peers commented that he only got on the mission because his dad was leading it/also on it
    • But he was actually chosen because he was the most qualified for the job, and deep down everyone else knew that and they were just jealous
  • He was top of his class tbh, this boy is real fucking smart
  • He was first and foremost a scientist, probably focused on astronomy and biology
    • Astronomy bc he worked with a space program
    • Biology bc when he’s talking about the ice samples in the first episode of season one he mentions using them to possibly find signs of alien life and study of living things = biology
  • In episode one we also see Pidge take down a Galra drone thing and reprogram it in no time, that makes me think that Matt was also interested in robotics
    • Maybe Pidge was the one who got him into it??
    • They probably worked on projects together
    • Some of their projects were hell for their parents bc they wouldn’t work as planned
  • His room at home is probably a mess, but an organized mess so don’t try to move anything around bc he has a system
  • He has ADHD
  • The Holts are Jewish, but not particularly religious
    • They still celebrate all the holidays but they don’t go to Temple
  • While in the Galra prison his dad was separated from him and Shiro almost immediately and it was only a few hours (?) days (?) later that he was separated from Shiro
    • He thought Shiro had died in the area and he wasn’t sure what happened to his father bc he was sent somewhere separate from him
    • The Galra found him to be a useful scientist and ended up using him
    • He ended up getting many scars, one on his right cheek and one over his left eye making him half blind
    • And many all over his body
  • When he was reunited with Pidge and Shiro it took him a minute to register who they were bc you know that thing where you see something that you look at everyday but it’s in a place where you don’t normally see it so you don’t register what it is for a minute?? That’s what happened with him
    • He then cried and they had a big group hug yay
    • He was part of a rebel group, the group the busted him out of prison, and after he was found he joined team voltron
    • He told his team that he was joining them bc they needed voltron as their ally and he could join and be like a diplomat of sorts
    • When in reality he just wanted to be with Pidge and Shiro and other humans again

I have more but I need to get off the computer now

I’ll make another headcanon post later!!
