Truth Serum (Voltron thing)

So I was looking at Harry Potter stuff (this is related trust me) and it was a post about Veritaserum. It’s a truth serum that only needs three drops to work (according to Snape in The Order of the Pheonix…I think…anyway) and I had Voltron on the back of my mind and I thought “What if the paladins accidentally drank something like that.” And so this came along.

  • One day Allura brings out five cups that have water(?) in it.
  • When asked what it is she tells them it’s an Altean truth serum. When consumed in small amounts the drinker is forced to tell a single truth. Just a single truth. She mixed it with water so it’s a small amount.
  • But when taken in large amounts it can make you tell the truth for days or weeks. But never longer than two weeks. Or else they DIEEEEEEEEEEE *ahem*
  • Like they immediately drop dead.
  • Anyway, after they drink it Allura says the exercise is they have to say a random nice thing about a teammate. They do that. (Can’t be bothered to write it)
  • But not even after an hour.everyone notices something is off…
  • They ask Allura if it was the drink. She takes a blood sample saying it is the only way to figure out.
  • It’s the end of the day so everyone goes to bed
  • The next day no one even has to know what the blood test results are. The serum is still in effect. Allura comes and tells them that the serum is still in effect and it should last about a week.
  • So someone (I imagine this would be Pidge or Lance) decides that the most logical thing to do is play Truth or Dare. Because they can’t lie!
  • Somehow they all agree.
  • IMAGINE THE LANGST
  • IMAGINE THE SHIPS THAT WOULD BE REVEALED. K L A N C E
  • J u s t
  • “Lance truth or dare?”
  • “Truth.”
  • “If you had to date anyone on the team who would you date”
  • and without skipping a beat “Keith”
  • B L U S H I N G  A N D  P I N I N G  H A P P E N S
  • *Then soon after*
  • “Keith truth or dare?”
  • “Truth”
  • “Would you date Lance?”
  • And without skipping a beat: “Duh”
  • “Lance truth or dare?”
  • “Truth.”
  • “If you had to kick someone off the team who would you?”
  • “Me.”
  • “Why?”
  • “Because I’m replaceable.”
  • Then our Keithy boy says “Lance you’re not replaceable.”
  • Lance is about to say something and then he stops and has the thought. He can’t be lying. He can’t lie.
  • Soon they stop playing and Klance shizzzzz happen. Yeah I don’t feel like writing more

Someone write this and tag me >~

There’s always someone who secretly believes in myths and legends; or at least parts of them. Those are the people who will look beyond the obvious and see things in this world that are truly wonderful… But they won’t say anything, even if they do. Because the rest of us who view the world as logical and scientific wouldn’t see the truth if it was posted up on a billboard.

The Napoleon Debate scene, wherein Marius sings the praises of Napoleon for most of a chapter, Combeferre one-shots him down, drops the mic, leaves the room leading a mass walkout, and then sings an unprompted encore,  which Enjolras, the only  person who’s even attempting  to keep this a conversation and not a Debate Curbstomp,  annotates

and people think Enjolras  is the one going over the top in that scene.

Men are socialized since birth to think their feelings and thoughts are the objective truth. 

They are taught they are generally right about something, unless contradicted by another male with equal or more authority. Men subconsciously believe they are firmly right about things so much they won’t even consider alternative perspectives unless it comes from a place of higher authority.

Men are socialized to believe women are inherently wrong, and that is why women are “crazy”, because it is so difficult for men to even consider the possibility that they don’t know shit. 

This is why men often offer strong opinions on topics they just heard about, especially if they’re contradicting a woman. 

This is because people will respect a man’s opinion and give his words weight even if he has zero background in the subject because men are considered credible by default. 

Women are considered wrong by default and must argue their way to display their truth, no matter how strong their credentials.

Men probably have to tell themselves they’re logical all the time just to keep up the lie that feeds their ego. 

Thinking is difficult work for a man who is used to instantly being told he is right, while women are constantly being argued against and therefore exploring the topics more deeply and doing more thinking.

okay so i was having thoughts this morning about how i believe that obi-wan was probably t h e best master for anakin under the circumstances (and a few others) and how as much as i hate predestination, if you accept anakin as (one of?) the chosen one(s), then he is fated to bring about the fall of the Jedi - cos you can’t have balance when the lightside outnumbers the darkside by as much as it does. and i started thinking about how what if the universes where obi-wan is his master greatly delays him fucking off to the darkside and bringing about the end of the Order? well, he was all of 23 when that happened, which means in other universes, where obi-wan is not his master, he probably abandons the order much younger than that.

okay, so - an au where.

an au where qui-gon lives. despite reasons why it probably wouldn’t happen, he becomes anakin’s master, obi-wan fucks off to do Knight Things and Grow As His Own Person. anakin has his canonical crisis of faith and great realization that being a jedi is difficult and not actually all that he thought it was going to be. he fucks off from the order - say around the age of fifteen?

qui-gon, despite everything, goes off to hunt him. despite this “betrayal”. after all, anakin is the chosen one, right? so he even goes so far as to call in obi-wan to help him find anakin. meanwhile, anakin is employing every last trick in the book to remain out of reach. he won’t go back - he won’t. he can do more good out there in the galaxy, instead of tied down by the (hostile, tbh) jedi order.

it just so happens that obi-wan finds him. rather than try to arrest him or anything (leaving the order is not a ‘take into custody’ offense, as obi-wan well knows) and actually talks to anakin about the reasons why he’s fucked off. he finds the reasons understandable. besides, becoming a jedi is not being conscripted. anakin has the right to leave if he feels like it. obi-wan tells him that it’s fucking dangerous for a half-trained force sensitive out there in the wild galaxy, but when anakin doesn’t change his mind (because he’s hella stubborn tbh) obi-wan is just like “welp” and lets him go. he tells qui-gon he never found anakin, but that it’s really unreasonable to hunt the kid down for fucking off. it’s another thing that qui-gon and obi-wan don’t see eye-to-eye with.

so that’s that, right? they’ll never see the chosen one again.

but wait, there’s more. So of course the Sith find anakin. he must bring balance to the force. Dooku and Sidious play bad cop/good cop until anakin is firmly under Sidious’ thumb. (presumably, Qui-gon would have found nine hundred different ways to keep anakin away from palpatine, who might even have been the one to plant the idea of running off into anakin’s head on the few times when he was allowed to speak with the kid). anakin goes corrupt, as you do when siths are fucking with your head, and the story proceeds.

here it is, the fall of the jedi order, and order 66.

ymmv what happens to qui-gon. does he live through even this? or is he shot down protecting obi-wan? in either case, obi-wan survives as he tends to, trying to regroup with the rest of the surviving Jedi. of course, you have this wretched sith lord, Darth Vader, hunting them all down. his skill with a blade is unparalleled. no jedi who has faced him has survived.

when he finds them, obi-wan stays back, sacrificing himself to save the others. and yet, to his surprise, darth vader does not kill him. darth vader himself does not understand entirely why, only that once when he was very young, a jedi heard him out and let him go.

he does not let obi-wan go, but neither does his blade fall.

third year captain tsukki???
  • jersey #1
  • when ennoshita announced tsukki to be the new captain, nobody had opposed
  • even kageyama agreed that tsukki was the best choice after seeing him lead blocks since the shiratorizawa match and also other plays in their second year
  • everyone was excited because they want to see what the literal saltshaker will do to raise team morale and encourage team spirit
  • he will be the type of captain that is super logical and speak solely of facts and truths that he can see for himself
  • this made his pre-game speech/catchphrase (its “if i’ve seen us ace it so many times during practices, then we can do it again here”) so much more reassuring 
  • whenerver he compliments a kouhai, said kouhai develops a crush on tsukki because how can anyone not when someone as stoick as tsukki looks you in the eye and compliments you sincerely
  • can bring up the team’s confidence just by saying things like “nice serve” or “nice toss” because they know there is no sugarcoating
  • calls out kageyama whenever his tosses starts being too king-like (because that tends to happen whenever kags is exhausted and/or anxious) and calms him down with a snarky remark
  • “king, watch your tosses” “what???” “this is not middle school alright” “sorry i wi-” “i have been blessed. the king have bestowed onto me his holy apology. i can now spike with the strength of a lion an-” “shut up tsukki” “don’t call me that”
  • he will become a captain that is similar to both kuroo and oikawa
  • his scheming-captain abilities are apparent since all he is thinking about during matches is how to subtly pressure his opponents into making their own mistakes
  • kuroo being a huge dorky boyfriendsenpai when he finds out about tsukki’s captaincy and keeps going on about how tsukki learnt from the best (aka him)
  • but tsukki says that he oikawa’s captaincy is his ideal style and that he learn from observing oikawa back in his first year
  • it’s not exactly a lie since he really does aspire to be a captain loved and looked up to by his teammates that can easily scare his opponents
  • and just like oikawa, he knows when and where to use his team’s plays so that it will be the most useful against opponents
  • is now known as the clever blocker among the prefecture and setters are always trying new plays to trick his blocking
  • can stop his rowdy juniors’ and kagehina’s antics with just one look
  • tbh, he can easily scare his kouhais with his smirks and he is delighted about it
  • arranging combined training camps with date tech and seijou (held at seijou because damn that school is huge) because tsukki, koganegawa, and kunimi (the respective captains) still remained in contact
  • karasuno still attends the tokyo training camp in the summer and many younger blockers goes to him for blocking tips
  • arranging practice matches with his brother’s neighbourhood team because he thinks it is good practice for karasuno
  • despite him putting on a scary front, he is still easily bullied (especially by the other third years) into treating the team dinner once in a while
  • also not afraid to call out on any kagehina pda during practice
  • “shrimpy stop eye-fucking our sweet tobio in front of innocent tadashi” “yamaguchi is doing it to yachi too and you’re just jealous because kuro-” *hinata gets hit in the face by a ball*
  • and yams “accidentally” missed his serve and hit hinata twice. yachi smirks.
