I was immensely excited
when Haggar was revealed as Altean, not just for the possibility of further
development between Allura and her prejudice, as well as a possible redemption
ark for Haggar herself, but because it in turn means one very overlooked aspect
is a bigger deal than previously thought. Where are the Galra women? Haggar’s
identity means there have been no female Galra represented in the show, if you
exclude Allura’s shapeshifting in season one.
This week, Royal Caribbean took delivery of its newest cruise ship — Harmony of the Seas. At 1,188 feet long and with a gross tonnage of 226,963, the billion-dollar Harmony of the Seas is the largest cruise ship ever built.
I wish Best Friends Whenever had at least half the fandom involvement that Girl Meets World does, but GMW is a sequel and basically has two seasons’ worth of episodes whereas Best Friends Whenever has five episodes. Lol, it’s like Doctor Who and Sherlock except the time travel show is the short one here.
okay BUT: a dramione AU where your emotions show up physically on your skin
• #draco and hermione getting in massive arguments #and their faces are both covered in angry red splatters #but then draco realizes how stupid and adorable hermione looks with big red patches on her cheeks and ‘OHNO THAT ONE LOOKS SORTA LIKE A HEART ITS SO CUTE’ #and so the red on his face just slowly gets infiltrated by pink swirly things #and ofc hermione knows what THAT means #so she starts getting pink stuff all over her face too and her arms and everything #and so commences the most awkward blushy fest ever
• #hermione getting really super excited about something like classic literature or arithmancy or whatever coz she’s a nerd and her skin just lighting up with happy orange and yellow speckles like sunshine #and all draco can think is ‘this sTUPID MORON IS THE MOST PERFeCT THING IVE EVER SEEN THIS IS NOT FAIR’
• #draco then proceeding to run away like an idiot bcuz he’s scared of his feelings and ‘FRCIK WAIT NO THIS IS HERMIONE GRANGER’ #‘NOT OKAY’ #‘NOT OKAY AT ALL’ #but then she finds him curled up with his arms around his knees in the library #his skin just covered in swirly grey and blue with a crap ton of other colors mixed in cause he’s conflicted as hell #and she asks what’s wrong #and he just panics and yells ’D'YOUWANNAGOONADATEWIMEGRANGER’ #which MORTIFIES him #but then MIRACLE OF MIRACLES SHE SAYS YES #AND THEY GO OUT TO THE LAKE #AND HIDE BEHIND A TREE SO NOBODY MAKES THEM GO INSIDE AFTER CURFEW #AND JUST STAY OUT THERE AND WATCH FHE SUN GO DOWN AND THE STARS COME OUT AND TALK THROUGH THEIR DIFFERENCES AND THEY REALIZE THEY AREN’t SO DIFFERENT AFTER ALL
• #hermione bringing up ron and draco’s ENTIRE BODY TURNS GREEN #but then she finishes by saying she never really liked him #and notices draco looks like a freakin peapod and tells him so #and he’s so embarrassed #but she actually thinks it’s cute as hell that he’s jealous
• #draco bein real depressed about the whole mission to assassinate dumbledore thing in sixth year and it shows cause he always has black fog misting around his skin #he says he’s okay but ofc he isn’t fooling anyone #and so hermione goes outside one day and he’s leaning against the wall staring up at the sky w dark blue droplets running along his neck and down his fingers #and she doesn’t even say anything #just hugs him #and he closes his eyes and hugs her back and it makes him feel so much better #and then eventually they talk through the whole thing #and draco realizes he does have a choice, he’s always had a choice #so he goes to dumbledore #who of course has a secure spot where narcissa and him can live in peace #but the only problem is he’d have to leave hermione #so he says no #his mother can go so she’ll be safe #but he’s gonna stay and fight #and as long as she’s fine and his dad’s “safe” in azkaban and hermione’s beside him then he’s got everything he needs #and there’s a new color on his skin #silver #because it’s the first time he’s ever shown real courage
• #the war ending and draco and hermione being so happy because ‘WE DID IT WE WON’ #and now they can settle down and have a life together #but wait settle down NO we don’t settle down we’re draco freaking malfoy and hermione damn granger #so they get married (obviously) and it’s the happiest day of their lives #but then it’s off to see the world #and they go try fancy chocolates in paris and swim the great barrier reef and visit charlie and the dragons in romania #and just live a life of romantic adventure and exploring #and it’s all they ever dreamed it would be #but then the first baby comes #and all the travelling just pales in comparison #suddenly there’s another new color for both of them #but this time it’s not silver #it’s gold #tattooing their skins with beautiful pictures and designs that no artist could ever capture #and they’re both just so in awe at this little life they created #especially draco #cause he never thought he could make something this perfect #he never knew what it was like to have a good father and he’s so terrified he’ll be a bad one #but he won’t #and hermione tells him so #because he’s not his father, he’s HIM, and who he is is a wonderful, caring man #not the horrible boy he once was #and gradually, he allows himself to believe her
• #they buy a little house back in England for a while until the baby’s a bit older #but they don’t mind the break from all the adventuring #because it doesn’t matter to them where they go or what they do, all that matters is that they’re together #and they really couldn’t ask for anything more #aAAND NOW I’VE GIVEN MYSELF FEELINGS AND I M SOBBING OKAY GOODbYE
A while ago I posted this pinball flyer, but it didn’t really click with me how hard they tried to match the original clothes until today. I just thought they made up the costumes completely. “This looks weird enough to be futuristic. Ok, stand next to the pinball machine.” I mean, yeah, it seems like they used stuff they already had around the house, but I like how hard they tried. Marty is ducking to look as short as Micheal J Fox. My favorite thing might be that they look like they got caught doing this.
