Kallura prompts/thoughts: Keith and allura design a training regime (boot camp) for the rest of the team
Dear lord they’d be merciless.
(Awkward pre-relationship Kallura 😉)
The two of them decided that the others were slacking in their training, and it was affecting their efficiency in battle. So they gathered everyone in the training room and described, to their teammates’ dismay, the new training regimen they’d be receiving.
Allura had first put forth the idea to Keith when they noticed Lance, Hunk, and Pidge lazing about on the deck.
“They need some new discipline,” she’d said. “You spend quite a bit of time training. I was hoping you could lend me a bit of assistance.”
This was partially true. Allura had been coming up with excuses to be around Keith for a while now. Whether it was planning attacks or helping with menial tasks, she continued to call his attention for reasons that she didn’t fully understand. And Keith continued to go along with it, for reasons that he understood but had elected to ignore.
So the two sat on the deck for hours, cross-legged on the floor, Keith with a digital notepad in his lap scrawling the training schedule down. Allura stretched out her words, changing her mind repeatedly and making Keith go back and change things, sometimes reaching forward to tap his hands or leaning her head momentarily on his shoulder. And each touch made Keith’s heart jump and his cheeks flush, though he remained poker-faced.
In the end the training regimen was ruthless, but successful. Despite complaints from the other paladins, the change was evident.
Allura approached Keith one day after a session, smiling warmly. “Thank you, Keith, for you assistance. I do believe it’s been quite effective.”
She reached out and squeezed his shoulder lightly, and he felt his throat tighten, warmth spreading over his skin and in his stomach.

Some weeks ago I decided to re-read the Haikyuu!!-manga because I kinda missed my babies Kuroo and Bokuto + I needed some references for.. fanart-reasons. Everything was fine until I came across one special panel..
well, nothing special, huh. But please.. take a closer look
Whats this, whats this?
WHATS THIS WHATS THIS WHATS THIS
IS THAT BOKUTO Damn.. have you guys ever noticed how NICE his back is in the manga? It’s like… the most perfect back I have ever seen..
I MEAN LOOK AT THIS-.. HOW IS THA-.. OH MY GOD- OH HOLY JE- AYYYYYY
Lololol I thought "team mom" was just the therm people used to group the "supportive parent" team leaders in haikyuu, the squad thing just giving a name to a group of characters with a similar feature? Like the "I have a thing for my ace squad" or the "loud squad" or the "stoic/ poker face" squad, I never thought of it in a negative way so thanks I feel more informed now
none of those other “squads” are aggressively gendered. they’re characteristics. and they aren’t associated with being feminine.
also, daichi is way more of a “supportive parent” than suga. suga wants to watch the world burn.
to start off with, little Bakugou doesn’t really seem to have a preference for shoes. on the left, it looks like he’s wearing sneakers, and the middle also seems to be some kinda sneakers. on the right he’s wearing sandals.
in the series proper, these are the first shoes we see Bakugou wear
however, they’re likely just school issued shoewear because Izuku is wearing the same kind of shoes
this is further evidenced later on, where both are wearing completely different shoes.
these seem to be their own personal shoes, since Izuku is wearing his signature red shoes here. we can’t get a clear image of them but, Bakugou it seems, favors loafer type shoes
this is once more shown in his two character pages, where he’s shown wearing casual clothes and on his UA character page, where he’s wearing his own shoes and not UA’s school regulated shoes.
next are Bakugou’s hero outfit boots.
Now, Bakugou actually didn’t design them. They’re an interpretation of his initial designs that the hero company came up with
however, he clearly seems to really like them because he specifically wore them during the Sports Festival. either that, or he wore them because they’re specifically designed for battle and work better than any of his regular shoes
(interestingly, he wears them two different ways during the festival. during the Cavalry Battle, he wears his pants over the boots, while later on he tucks the pant legs into the boots)
later on, while at the training camp and when he was kidnapped, he was wearing shoes that seemed like some sort of sneakers?
it’s hard to make out, but they don’t look exactly like loafers, and there seems to be laces on them
in one of the colorspreads, he’s wearing what looks to be combat shoes. this is the only time we’ve ever seen him wear these kinds of shoes, if you exclude his hero shoes.
return of The Loafers: red colored formal wear edition
and here we have some pretty cool lookin’ snow boots on the 2nd popularity poll colorspread (also why is he wearing snow boots while being shirtless. child. this makes no sense)
long story short Baku really seems to like loafers
Get To Know Important People At Bayern Munich: Team Manager Kathleen Krüger
Ladies and Gentlemen, Kathleen Krüger! She is the team manager of Bayern Munich and I’ve met her in February - she’s awesome.
She played football herself at Bayern Munichs Womens Team from 2003 to 2009.
She’s 31 years old, was former assistant of Christian Nerlinger (former sporting director) and since a couple of years, she is our team manager.
She’s responsible for everything around the team: planning and booking the away trips, organizing events with sponsors of the players, checking that the bus is leaving on time and she’s even responsible for the teams free-time activities during the trainings camp.
She also once said, that she prefers to do her work in the background and doesn’t want to be noticed. When I met her, she told us, that actually her whole life rotates around her work - she nearly has to be available for 24/7. To get things off her mind, she enjoys going jogging near the Isar.
The team absolutely adores her - and she’s the only woman, who works that close with the team. They all have a lot of respect for her and love her a lot - when I was talking with her, she was always referring to the players as ‘her boys’.
Here, have Franck Ribery singing ‘Kathleen Krüger, you are the best woman in the world”
I’ve met her as a really self-confident, independent and strong woman who’s not taking shit from anybody and knows exactly, what she can do. We are lucky to have her, because without her, probably half of our team would’ve gotten lost somewhere and I hope, she will stay for a very long time with us xx
