trap them

Earth

Home is far away for Lance.
People always said that home was where the heart is and well… Lance’s heart is on Earth.
Keith sat outside the healing pod.
The mission had been a disaster, it was a trap and none of them had realised it until it was too late.
Well none of them except Lance.
He had tried to warn them, he had even pushed Keith out of the way of the spike that flew out of the wall.
The mission became a desperate escape attempt with Hunk carrying Lance’s limp bleeding form in his arms.
The spike had clipped his heart.
There was nothing they could do.
The pods were slowing down the inevitable but they couldn’t heal him.
Lance was going to die.
The least they could do now was get him back to earth before that happened.
Keith looked out of the window as Earth came into view. He hadn’t even bothered to clean to blood off himself.
But that didn’t matter now…
Only Lance did.
As they came to land Shiro walked in. He wore a grim expression, Hunk was a broken mess and Pidge wasn’t much better. Coran was holding up a strong face but his eyes told everyone he was dead inside. Allura like Shiro was trying to keep acting like a leader despite being consumed by the guilt of pulling a boy from his planet to his death.
The pod hissed open and Lance fell out into Keith’s waiting arms.
His breathing was practically none existent as was his heart beat.
His face was scrunched up in pain as he held onto Keith with a weak grip.
Keith carried him bridal style and walked out of the ship trailed by the rest of the team.
Lance was gone before they stepped foot on the beach.
He was gone before his mother spotted them and ran over.
He was gone before his mother screamed and begged him to be ok.
Lance was home but he was gone before he got to see it again.

Hey, what's Toriels deal with Defending humans and thier wrongful action towards her monsters? Humans set war on them for simply being powerful magic users, killed off 2/3 of the race. Trapped them underground, bump thier trash on them. Then killed both thier children. But Toriels gets upset when Asgore sets war back at them? I have the impression that she self hates a bit. Like trapped in the Ruins she could have educated the monsters, set an example that they're not bad. But just shuns all.

(undertale spoilers)

Not quite sure where you found your statistic of “killed off 2/3 of the race,” but there is no denying that many monsters lost their lives. 

Toriel may have flaws in her approach, but whether her decision was morally ethical or not is subjective. Unlike Asgore, Toriel sees vengeance as wrong. In her eyes, violence begets more violence, and nothing is worth the cost of a life. However, Toriel appears to be alone in this thinking. Asgore’s declaration of war may have been fueled by anger and vengeance, but this vow to destroy humanity brings hope back to the monsters.

ASGORE:
I remember the day after my son died.
The entire underground was devoid of hope.
The future had once again been taken from us by the humans.
In a fit of anger, I declared war.
I said that I would destroy any human that came here.
I would use their souls to become godlike…
…and free us from this terrible prison.
Then, I would destroy humanity…
And let monsters rule the surface, in peace.
Soon, the people’s hopes returned.

In the genocide route, Gerson reveals that he and Asgore actually agreed that escaping from the underground was a bad idea. He felt betrayed when Asgore changed his mind.

GERSON:
Long ago, ASGORE and I agreed that escaping would be pointless…
Since once we left, humans would just kill us.
I felt a little betrayed when he eventually changed his mind.
But now, I think… Maybe he was right to.
‘Cause after all, even though we never escaped…
A human’s killing us anyway, ain’t that right?

However, Toriel is aware that Asgore does not really want to hurt anyone and that his declaration was not as genuine as others thought.

TORIEL:
If you really wanted to free our kind…
You could have gone through the barrier after you got ONE SOUL…
…taken six SOULs from the humans, then come back and freed everyone peacefully.
But instead, you made everyone live in despair…
Because you would rather wait here, meekly hoping another human never comes.

ASGORE:
…Tori…
You’re right…
I am a miserable creature…

Asgore says Toriel was disgusted with his actions and left, which may have not been the best option for her kingdom, but it may have felt like the only option for her. While it’s specified as to why Asgore did not cross the barrier with one soul to destroy humanity, it’s never clarified as to why Toriel didn’t try something besides leaving. Perhaps she found Asgore inconsolable and felt the only way to stop him was to kill him, but unable to do that, she left instead. Perhaps she lost faith in her people when she saw the other monsters find hope in his vengeance, and felt the only thing she could do was isolate herself. Once alone, the hatred she harbored against him prevented her from being able to face him again. 

But the ultimate reason Toriel does not agree with Asgore’s vow of vengeance is that she does not condone sacrificing lives for freedom.

TORIEL:
Your adventure must have been so treacherous.
…and ultimately, it would burden you with a horrible choice.
To leave this place, you would have to take the life of another person.
You would have to defeat ASGORE.
However… I realized…
I cannot allow that.
It is not right to sacrifice someone simply to let someone leave here.
Is that not what I have been trying to prevent this whole time?
So, for now, let us suspend this battle.
As terrible as ASGORE is…
He deserves mercy, too.

The Burn of Ice

Hiatus means neverland fic, right? Never forget Neverland.

The heat. It’s all anyone talks about. Huffs about, complains about. The humidity of the jungle bearing down all around them. The stifling heat trapping them here more than any magic.

So why is it she’s cold? Like a sharp shock that shoots down her spine and crackles across her skin. He speaks and it sends a shiver through her. He moves closer and she’s frozen. 

She watches him, as she knows he’s been watching her. And it’s so confusing. She tries to concentrate on finding Henry, tries to focus on her worry. She tries to summon fire as Regina goads her, but how can she call flame when all she can think about is the cold?

He pulls her aside, away from the eyes of the others, deeper into the dark trees. His fingers on her bare arm and goosebumps appear on her skin, pins and needles tingling through her. She pulls in a sharp breath and he looks down at her with concern. Can he feel the way she trembles against him? 

“Emma,” he says and she’s surprised by his use of her first name. “Love, you’re pale.”

She shakes her head. “I’m fine, it’s just this place.”

He looks at her like maybe he knows exactly what she means, his eyes blue like ice upon hers. Can he feel the winter in the muggy air? The drip of sweat down her back almost feels like the cool brush of his fingers over her skin. Caught in his gaze she almost wishes it was. She leans into him as though he could be the cure for the chill in her veins and not the cause.

His breath is warm against her and the memory of their kiss burns unbidden through her mind with him so close. And desperate to drive away just a little of the chill she stands up on her toes as she stretches toward the soft caress of his lips.

And it’s like she remembers, his lips on hers igniting her. And she’s consumed, needing more. She pulls at his lip with her teeth and there’s a rumble deep within him that scorches through her. She pushes her fingers into his hair anchoring herself.

He melts against her, the tension falling away. And when his hand cups her cheek holding her as he deepens the kiss, the feel of his skin burns hot against her. His tongue brushes against her and heat spills down inside her warming her to her core. 

She grips him, pulling him further into her almost frantic to keep this feeling. And they sway together, trying to find their footing in this new thing. And this time it’s not just the forbidden thrill of kissing him, this time the feeling of him is something more. It’s something that pulls at her, something that swells in heart and she jerks back. 

She squeezes her eyes shut as she tries to regain her balance. What the hell was that? As she breaks away she feels every inch between them like a drop of several degrees. And when she looks up at his face it’s there mirrored back her, and the unsatiated desire settles back over her like december air on her exposed skin. 

Perhaps there’s a reason he wears that big coat in the humid depths of this damn jungle.

A Tip for Book Lovers

If you go to libraries and if you shop at Thriftbooks (both of which I recommend) then you may already know this fact. But if you don’t, let me enlighten you;

These places are breeding grounds for BED BUGS.

No this is not me telling you to stop. No this is not me calling that places dirty or gross. This is just the consequence of book sharing. Because these books trade hands and houses in a wonderful and perfect system of intellectual freedom. And I think that’s beautiful. But when a book trades houses that many times it’s prone to pick up something. That something is usually bed bugs.

Due to their natural structuring, books are ideal homes. And once a book returns to the library or the warehouse, these bedbugs wiggle out and find more places to burrow and breed.

And here’s another fun fact. Unlike ants, bed bugs are not social insects. They don’t like each other. So if you think you can just put down a single trap and catch them all, you’re wrong. They don’t work like that. If you poison one, it won’t go home and do a secret handshake with a hundred other of its friends. It’ll just die. If you kill one, you’ve only killed one.

Why am I telling you this? To scare you? To ward you away? Of course not. I’m just here to make sure you’re aware AND to introduce you to something that could save you a shit ton of grief.

The moment you bring the book home or take it out of its packaging, PUT THAT FUCKER INTO THE FREEZER.

NO. THAT’S NOT A JOKE. MOVE THE LEAN CUISINE OUT OF THE WAY AND POP THAT SUCKER INTO THE FREEZER!!!

Extreme cold and extreme heat kills bed bugs. And since we’re not Trump and holding book burnings is generally looked down upon, we do the next best thing. Freeze it. No, it won’t damage the book. A few days in there will only leave it cold and bug free. But if you’re worried, pop it into a large Ziplock before you do.

Read safe and stay bug free, my bookish friends! 📚📚📖

i spent too much time on this– so I’ve been toying with the idea of an RPG!AU! Despite the fact that I know next to nothing about D&D or fantasy/RPG settings… (fhkdjs blame my nerris muse for this…) The colours are in no way final, either. Preston gave me a hell of a time…

They’re all older as well! Anywhere from mid-late teens/early-20s. I have most of the cast’s classes and alignments sorted out; I would’ve started out with the main 3, but Max and Nikki are harder for me to nail a design for.  Hit me up if you’ve got some thoughts on this or would like to know about the other characters before I draw them!

I’ll put all my current headcanons for these 3 under the cut ↓ ↓ ↓ (Classes are loosely based on the many from D&D, but I wanted to keep things flexible so m(_ _)m)

This is more of a fun prank than ‘illegal’, but I like to think the boys would still try to destroy the local competition around Gravity Falls.

a lil something for the @stanchez-summer-sizzle

Europe continuously hates Romani claiming “none of us have jobs” or that we “only live off welfare checks” when it’s literally Europe’s own fault that a disheartening large % or Roma live in poverty.

Roma are systemically denied their rights to education & non-discrimination in primary education and are overwhelmingly segregated in “Roma-only” schools/classes. Even when Roma children get the chance to attend “normal” schools non-Roma parents usually end up remove their children from those schools, resulting in the faculties becoming “Roma only” too because of the large scale non-Roma departures. 

A lot of Romani children have also been purposely misdiagnosed with mental disabilities as a result of culturally-biased diagnostic tools and anti-Roma prejudice among psychology and pedagogic experts and send to special schools for children with “mild mental disabilities”, when there is no need for them to be there.

As a result to that they are condemned to low-quality, segregated education and limited opportunities for further education and employment. Even though under national European and international law, discrimination in the field of education is prohibited, in practice it’s still happening and the authorities continue to let this discrimination slide which has far-reaching consequences for thousands of Roma children who remain segregated in inferior education that traps them in a cycle of poverty and marginalization.

On top of that a lot of Roma cannot get jobs because of racism, traditional anti-Romani attitudes and a mixture of prejudice against Romani. It’s not for no reason that Romani are deemed “Europe’s Most Hated.” A lot of Romani literally have to look through trash and look for scrap metal and copper that they can resell for a little money to survive, not having any other choice because nobody will hire them. (x, x

Europeans can be quiet. They are literally the reason why a lot of Roma live trapped in the cycle of poverty and can’t get a job. Yet they despise us for something that wouldn’t even be a problem if they would just treat us like equal human beings.

So I made the Voltron squad on Sims 4

It’s really hilarious to play because it’s surprisingly accurate??

As soon as they moved in, Coran and Hunk split up and started cracking jokes with each other, while Keith and Pidge were taking selfies as Lance was third-wheeling (my poor baby).

Keith sleeps in and gets angry for no reason?

Hunk did a badass backflip into a pool.

Shiro is always flirty and I hate him?

Allura is just..around?

Pidge is always reading or going nuts over homework and stuff.

Coran likes to take bubble baths and be social. (+ build rocketships)

Lance is so carefree but cool? He cleaned the dishes one night and I was so proud.

But..something hilarious just happened.

Keith was sitting next to Lance, and Hunk was next to Lance on a couch, right? They were all watching comedy shows together, when I decided to make Lance make a flirtatious joke at Keith AND Hunk.
Now,
Keith and Lance’s romance bar was very small; they didn’t have that much romance…right?

Well since Keith was there, apparently, after Lance flirts with Hunk, he PULLS Lance to another side of the room, exclaims angrily, and a heartbroken emoji appears above his head???
Then he got a moodlet saying that he was mad and jealous-
(then Keith made a flirty joke and he forgave Lance because of it)

If this isn’t accurate then idk what is.

THE HUNGER / JOHN - [(Kyle Maclachlan Fancast)]

You call us the hunger, that’s not entirely inaccurate, ‘cause we are hungry. But it would be more accurate to simply call us dissatisfaction

…But soon. 

You will call us ascendant.
