to walk with lions

Better pics to come soon, but I just had to share since I’m walking on air right now. Two Lion King Broadway stars, Bonita Hamilton (Shenzi) and Adrienne Walker (Nala) rocked Viscountess original designs at the American Theatre Wing Gala Tonight! My heart could not be more full!!

So that’s been part of the big reason for my radio silence on tumblr these last couple of weeks, two huge projects with deadlines early this week. 

Hi my name is Keith K’ogane and I have ebony black hair that’s longer in the back than the front (its NOT A MULLET) and dark purple eyes like limpid grape juice and a lot of people tell me I look like Zuko (AN: if u don’t know who he is get da hell out of here!). I’m not related to Gerard Way but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I’m part galra but i dont have any fur. I have pale white skin. I’m also a paladin, and I pilot a lion that joins up with four other lions to become a giant robot man (I’m an arm). I’m a goth texan (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black. I love Hot Topic and I buy all my clothes from there. For example today I was wearing a dark gray t shirt, black skinny jeans, red and white boots, a belt with two fanny packs, black fingerless gloves, and a cropped red motorcycle jacket. I was walking outside the Castle of Lions. The particle barrier was fully functional, which I was very happy about. Lance stared at me. I put up my middle finger at him.

Okay but what if in season 3, Keith is trying to get the black lion to open up and bond, and she just isn’t listening. The team is there too, and Keith eventually just gets frustrated and storms off. Lance walks up to the lion and jokes about asking nicely, and says something like “can you open up for me beautiful? Pretty please?”

The black lion’s doors open.

Muder dad, I have a not so little brother who likes murder strut (and run after small jet-powered children) in 6" heels, but he will not teach me his secrets. 😢 I am a sad bean, because I fall flat on my face if I try anything that's over 3" that isn't a wedge. How did you learn not to face plant?

practice and nazi science, my friend. i don’t recommend the nazi science route though. bad call. 

when you walk in heels, it’s tempting to put your whole foot down at once like you do with flats–or like you would with wedges. there’s a bit of a gentle roll to it, and if you have a single continuous sole, that’s okay.  but actually with heels you want to hit heel first, then toe–you should hear that two-stage click sound as the front and back of your foot impact separately. also, you want to keep your weight really poised; your spine straight but not stiff, and your weight more on your toe than your heel; your heel is going to be wobblier. think of something pulling upwards from the top of your head and between your shoulderblades.  if you can, do heeled boots–weakness in the ankle is what gets people a lot of the time, and even short boots will be more stable. 

if you want that hip sway, walk on a line like you’re on a balance beam. lions do this–they place their paws all along the same axis. stepping into the same centerline will push your hips side to side as you walk. it is indeed very murder-strut-y. 

when you run in heels, you run on tiptoe–your actual heel pretty much never contacts the ground. same with walking on grass–it’s exhausting, but you literally balance on just the balls of your feet so your stiletto doesn’t puncture the ground.  when you kick in heels, you kick stiletto first–otherwise whats even the point of wearing knife shoes. 

beauty is pain. and pain is heels. 

source: drunken shenanigans. so many drunken shenanigans. tony got science involved, and pepper provided expertise. steve is weirdly good at the can-can in heels, just for the record. 

you can’t know this many badass ladies who fight in heels and not have drunken conversations on how exactly they pull it off. they are a source of wonder and mystery, and the drunkvengers are determined to someday discover the secrets of heelfighting.

I don’t know about everyone else, but I think these need way more publicity. THEY ARE SO COOL. They were made by Kasami-Sensei, and are called “The Walking Disney”

Imagine this:

  • Keith’s now in charge because Shiro’s gone and he’s being hot headed, like he tends to be.
  • Red keeps fighting Black because Keith keeps trying to get inside
  • But Keith keeps insisting Shiro told him to pilot Black
  • Lance walks by one day when the two lions are duking it out and is like ‘maybe you’re not really cut out to pilot the black lion anyway.’
  • Keith, who’s on edge, turns to him and just yells ‘why are you even here? You’re not cut out to pilot the blue lion, if you ask me,’ 
  • Lance turns away, pretending to be only lightly injured but really trying hard to hold back tears
  • Keith goes looking for Lance later and runs into Hunk, who says he’s been in his room all day
  • Hunk tells Keith not to go in there
    • (Hunk’s known about these insecurities for a while, he is Lance’s best friend)
  • This doesn’t stop Keith who sees Lance, curled in a ball, tucked in the corner between his bed and the wall, just sobbing and muttering incomprehensible gibberish
  • Hunk gets Keith out of there but not before Keith hears Lance say something about not being cut out for Voltron
  • When he and Hunk are out of the room he asks what’s wrong
  • ‘We’re all really stressed with Shiro gone, Keith,’ 
  • Keith doesn’t buy it
    • ‘Hunk, did I do something wrong?’
  • For the rest of the episode Lance sits in his room while Keith tries to figure out how to fix things, failing multiple times, occasionally making it worse
  • After multiple failed attempts Keith sits down and admits to the rest of the team that he’s afraid that he put Lance out of commission permanently
    • ‘I’m scared, guys. I think I broke him.’
  • Then, as if this had never occurred to him before, Coran says they’re going to have mandatory shooting practice
    • Keith: but my bayard is a sword
    • Coran says he’ll just use one of the guns stored in the castle
  • Coran makes a game out of it, drags Lance out to participate, and the gang shoots.
  • Keith, Pidge, and Hunk miss a couple on the easy mode, but Lance makes them all.
  • As it gets harder and harder, the three start missing all of them, but Lance still hasn’t missed one yet
  • When they’re finished, Coran energetically announces Lance the teams best shooter
  • Keith walks right up to him with a hand outstretched to shake
    • ‘Looks like you’re better than me.’
  • And then Lance, eyes wide, mouth agape, just breaks into the widest grin and shoots Keith some finger guns and just exclaims ‘you know it!’
  • Keith just rolls his eyes but smiles fondly after him.
