Aliens are so used to humans wanting to pet the most deadliest creatures they find because PUPPER that they have prepared on every ship with a human crewmate. They have human sitting duties and at least 2 chaperones when going planet-side, just in case they get any ideas.
Then a crew gets a human for the first time and it’s everything like what the Human Care Manual says. The human is loud, but pleasant, always joke around with the crew and was tremendous during that Flokkut Raid on Sector 6. The human even brought a camera with it to take pictures on the ship (it’s bigger than most, downright obnoxious in shape to some of the crew, but the human is happy with it, and a happy human is a bonded human)
So then they go down to a planet, letting the human explore with his chaperones. After walking for a while the group stumbles on a herd of Dwetts, elks with fish eyes and flippers. The aliens sigh cause it was bound to see creatures sooner or later, and turn to give Acceptable Reason #6 from the manual, when the human disappeared! They freak out because how did the human leave??? Does it have invisibility??? That wasn’t part of the manual!! But they hear their human saying “guys, stop moving! You’re going to upset them!”
They look down to see the human lying on his stomach looking through his camera, taking pictures. They were shocked, but did as they were told and sat down. For hours they watched the human taking photos, being as quiet as still as possible. This couldn’t be the same human??
When the human was done, it got up, stretched, and headed back for the ship. The chaperones followed suit. When they got back the captain was surprised that they returned without a creature (even with 2 chaperones, he suspected that the human would win anyway) but was astonished to hear what had happened.
“You didn’t want to take one as these ‘pets’ for the ship??”
“No???? Why would I? They aren’t domesticated, they need space to live which the ship wouldn’t supply.”
“But aren’t they cute in human terms?”
“I mean, I would say more interesting than cute. But seriously, how would we take care of it? How to feed it, groom it, keep away from all the sensitive equipment? It would be dangerous for us and it if we take one from the wild. You really want one that badly?”
“Wha- No! It’s just…you seemed to like them?”
“I mean yeah, it’s a new animal species, and I did take pictures, but not as long as I hoped for. Honestly you have to look at the ecosystem here before getting any animals on board.”
The captain immediately notified the Human Care Committee that their section on animal bonding does not apply to human subclass professional wildlife photographer

everything you’ve done has helped me through so many dark times
Because of you I joined a groupchat about you and it inspired me to make an actual Twitter account instead of a side one, and ever since all the people in the community have made me feel so welcome aaaaa
i’m gonna end this here because im ranting whoops,,, anyways i hope u like it ,, aa aa a @thatsthat24
I am 24 when my doctor tells me that I was abused. She doesn’t tell
me what happened to me, or plant any memories that weren’t already
there. She takes what I have told her and she puts it all inside those
six letters, that one word.
Before she takes my memories and gives me that word, I tell her that I
have made the appointment because I want to know why I can’t stand being
touched. I tell her that I’m 24 and I’m sick of flinching when shop
assistants hand me my change, just in case their fingers brush against
my palm and there is that fire again, the one that rushes up from my
bone to the membrane of my skin any time it comes into contact that I
wasn’t expecting. I tell her that I have been trying to do this
properly, from dating to everything else, and it’s like I’m blocked.
It’s like I’m missing a piece of myself that makes me an adult, or
perhaps even a human, and I don’t know where it’s gone.
okay, but i’m starting to think that lance’s story arc will be a big one. Because all of his insecurities are kind of piling up and adding up for season 3.
because in season 1 he had first showed that he was homesick, and that was a big deal at the time he was kind of the only one who really expressed that they wanted to go home really badly. He almost cried.
and then this season kinda heightened that.
first when he is with the mermaids they tell him he is their saviour and he doesn’t even believe them
he questions them and looks distraught like he can’t even believe they would see him as someone who could save them by himself.
and even here it gets worse, he clearly doesn’t see the worth that he has and it shocks him and even frightens him to meet people who think he can help and actually do things
THEN he thinks that Keith is trying to steal his lion, and is extra dramatic and even tells Keith that him and blue are happy together, and that i think was him being afraid of being replaced.
face mask and towel aside lance is almost hostile here he is clearly upset
then… he gets really upset that shiro chooses to take kieth on a mission over him.
in this scene he is clearly upset and his expression is almost sad at first when shiro chooses keith and he fights shiro on it despite how he has always seen him as a leader who knew what was best
he clearly just wants to be appreciated, and acknowledged by shiro and the rest of the team as a strong member and even if they do he clearly doesn’t see it
AND FINALLY TO TOP IT ALL OFF
THIS LOVELY SCENE RIGHT HERE
HE LITERALLY HAD JUST BOASTED ABOUT THE WHOLE TEAM, EVEN KEITH BUT HE REALLY DOESNT HAVE MUCH TO SAY ABOUT HIMSELF
HE EVEN WONDERS IF THE TEAM WOULD KEEP HIM AROUND IF HE WASN’T USEFUL, SO CLEARLY HE HAS ISSUES ACCEPTING HIS WORTH
so while yeah lance didn’t have much of a roll in this season there is alot of hope for next season. this is clearly a buildup, because as the seasons progress it’s getting worse, and that means that this may even start to effect the team.
when lance does get his full fledged character arch like keith did this season and shiro it will be very large and i think it will be very interesting to see how this pans out. LANCE WILL GET THE LIME LIGHT HE DESERVES AND I THINK THATS SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO!!
And there he stood, Harry the Heir himself; tall, handsome, scowling. “Lady Alayne. May I partner you in this dance?”
She considered for a moment. “No. I don’t think so.” Color rose to his cheeks. “I was unforgiveably rude to you in the yard. You must forgive me.”
“Must?” She tossed her hair, took a sip of wine, made him wait. “How can you forgive someone who is unforgiveably rude? Will you explain that to me, ser?”
Ser Harrold looked confused. “Please. One dance.”.
Unlike Godzilla, Pacific Rim doesn’t try to be serious even when it’s being serious. Characters have names like Stacker Pentecost and Hercules Hansen. The film requires you to believe that the best way to battle a giant monster is to build an even larger robot to fight that monster.
Much of the Act 2 drama derives from inter-pilot tension airlifted from the Val Kilmer scenes in Top Gun. It’s the polar opposite of the Godzilla school of drama, where everyone is a total professional who has absolutely no personal goal besides Saving The World. In Pacific Rim, Idris Elba is Rinko Kikuchi’s Obi-Wan Kenobi, and two of the last Giant Robot-pilots in the world frequently get into sneering fights over who’s the bigger badass, and Charlie Day is a scientist.
So, for all these reasons, Pacific Rim is a movie that I’ve heard perfectly smart people describe as “stupid” or “silly.” The problem with this line of thinking is that, really, that every blockbuster is pretty “silly,” in the context of Things Adults Should Care About. Godzilla is not less stupid than Pacific Rim just because people frown more. […]
The difference, I think, is that Pacific Rim glories in its own silliness. There’s a flashback scene where Idris Elba rescues a little girl, and when he emerges from his giant robot, the sun shines upon him like he’s the catharsis in a biblical epic. There’s a moment when one giant robot swings an oil tanker like a sword. Then it grows a sword out of its wrist. Then it falls from space to earth.
There are real complaints to make about Pacific Rim, I guess, all of them fair and most of them pedantic. I know a lot of people who have issues with the story. (“Why didn’t they use the wrist-sword earlier?” is a popular one.) Conversely, I don’t really know anyone who minds the story in Godzilla, possibly because everything stupid that happens is prefaced by Frowning Watanabe saying “This is why the stupid thing that’s about to happen makes sense.” Godzilla wants so badly to make sense. Pacific Rim wants so badly for Ron Perlman to wear golden shoes.

howbout some au headcanons of Viktor as a famous stage actor-turned-director and Yuuri as an aspiring actor
Viktor was totally a child star and is still known for the roles he played back then, some even more so than the recent roles he’s played
As a child he played roles in broadway musicals but as an adult he’s mostly really been in plays
at 27 he has played countless roles on stage and has so many tonys for them people have lost count
Viktor hasn’t told anyone but he really wants to direct something, take a break from acting
Yuuri and his best bud Phichit have been aspiring actors since their early teens
They often audition for the same thing and never fail to support each other even if one got a role that the other wanted really badly
Yuuri’s inspiration for acting is Viktor Nikiforov of course, and Minako has been his voice teacher since he was a boy
Unlike Viktor, Yuuri and Phichit are musical theater actors. Yuuri’s voice is a little fuller than Phichits, having had more classical training, but Phichit’s voice has its own appeal of course
On a day they let Viktor’s understudy go on for him, Viktor finds himself at an off-broadway theater, buys a ticket to the show, and it seems to be a show that has been growing a bit of a name already
It’s during this show that he discovers Yuuri, a gorgeous Japanese actor with a rich, lovely voice, but Viktor is disappointed because Yuuri’s not playing a lead or major role or anything
Even then, Viktor is absolutely captivated, he thinks Yuuri’s a better actor than anyone there onstage
And Viktor confronts Yuuri right after the show and blurts out “I wanna direct a musical with you as the lead role” and Yuuri is so surprised because it’s VIKTOR NIKIFOROV but also tries to be professional so he asks what the musical is about and
Phichit, of course, gets a pic of Yuuri’s beet-red face and answers for Yuuri, saying “sure, just as long as I get a part too”
And Viktor just says DONE and well
Viktor doesn’t realize at that moment that making a musical takes years, and he’s not as well-versed in musicals himself, but he knows, he KNOWS he is willing to put in the time, effort, research, anything, to make Yuuri shine in the lead role he fully deserves
For terumob valentines day, I want lil mob going to school and seeing everyone else get all their candies and hes happy for them! Hes just like “ah yeah glad they got some good things.”
And then at lunch time hes eating at his desk and Teru waltzes in with a huuuge bouquet of flowers, a bag of all kinds of candy and a homemade sweater. Mobs class is stunned and Shigeo is really happy as Teru starts listing off the flowers and what their meaning is. (Mezato probably tells Teru to go back to his own school.)
And before he goes Mob gives Teru a small but expensive box of chocolate and a phonecase he got made for him. Its got a few stickers of fruits on it and a keychain of an egg. Teru cries a little.
