way spaced out

Lars of the Stars

throughout my impoverishing fever i literally could not stop thinking about a gemstuck eridan

probably a tanzanite? kunzite?

i commissioned this piece from the kind and talented @mesknoxx as a companion to chapter four of my fluffy season three fix it fic – we don’t talk very much (we just fake being nice) – in which clarke and lexa attend an azgeda coronation ball. this is the artist’s rendering of the dresses they wore.


Well, anon, it was the night before winter break and Lance didn’t even pretend to get his coat…… 

Also by the way, in case you’re wondering where this is… 

Anyone can ask ✨🍯

Doctor who + chips

When it comes to the people I care about, I can be quite the hypocrite. I’ll give you the hours during which I should be sleeping without hesitation. My eyelids saturated with fatigue, I’ll gladly watch the seconds tick away knowing that somehow this is helping you. But when it comes to me, I don’t want you to worry. You don’t need to help me climb out of the rubble I call my life. I’ll make it out somehow. Until I do, I’ll put a smile on my face for you. I’ll make sure it’s high quality, made from whatever amount of strength I could muster before stepping outside that morning. If I’m lucky, you won’t question the bags under my eyes or the way I seem to space out when my thoughts become too loud. If I’m lucky, my sadness will stay just that, mine. I know your arms are open, but sometimes I don’t want to trouble you with this body. Sometimes I just don’t want to be a burden.

Ironically, the assumption that theoretical knowledge must be more authoritative than knowledge gained through one’s lived, embodied experience was one I had long since rejected on an academic level.  But, like so many others, I found my ideas easy to defend in the philosophy room and hard to act on in real life. And so I spent my days writing (or failing to write) about the role of embodiment in knowledge production while ignoring the clear signals my own body was sending. The constricted throat, the trouble sleeping, the anxiety headaches, the tunnel vision, the depression, and finally the tears and panic: all were signs that I was not doing well.

But graduate school trains you to see those types of signals as obstacles to be overcome. It trains you to placate the suffering “I” (in both its mental and physical aspects) just enough to carry on with the thing of real importance—your work, especially your dissertation… The world was big and it was interesting. I couldn’t believe that my goal had been to produce a mediocre dissertation that I loathed writing; I wanted, now, to create many things, and I wanted them to be good.

This took a while, but it was worth it! Here we have Soar in his new and incredible black hole form, holding a fragment of a ~certain constellation~ from whom he stole a star. If you look close at the blue shard, you may be able to figure it out! ;0

Hope you like it, @myebi bab!


Ground control to Captain Andor, AKA the Rebelcaptain Astronaut AU no one ever asked me to make

The year is 2032. It’s the end of construction to extend the International Space Station with a top-of-the-line rotating habitat, bringing the old station into the new age of space travel. Captain Cassian Andor has been on a solo mission to the ISS to install the Key To Station Operations, an AI more commonly known as K-2SO, whose job it is to manage the newly expanded station, as well as assist the crew when necessary, enabling the entire station to be run by only one crew-member at a time. 

To put the new features to the test, Cassian is to leave the station in the hands of Jyn Erso, a British astronaut send in from the ESA. She arrives two days before Cassian’s planned departure to earth, and the widely different pair take an immediate dislike to each other.

Unfortunately for them both (or perhaps fortunately), due to a critical error in K’s programming, he accidentally ejects Cassian’s return pod five hours too soon. The capsule is sent floating off into space unmanned, and Cassian is stuck on the ISS with Jyn. His only option is to wait out Jyn’s two-month mission and take the planned descend back down with her. Suddenly, they need to somehow find a way to get along for a total of 64 days.

There’s room enough on the station for them to avoid each other most of the time, but for some reason they never do; instead they get in each other’s space, his hand on her elbow when he drifts by her, her eyes always finding his as the first thing when she enters a room. Cassian isn’t sure when the feel of her loose hair tickling his throat as she floats by stopped bothering him. Sometimes he’s not even sure if it ever really bothered him at all. Jyn doesn’t remember when she started thinking of Cassian’s discarded jackets left in her workspace as an annoyance and started seeing them as signs of the kind of life she tried to leave behind on earth, but now longs for.

Without realising it, they’ve both started closely orbiting each other as surely as the station itself is orbiting the earth.

By day 17, they’ve both privately begun to understand that maybe they aren’t as different from the other as they first thought. By day 34 nothing’s been done about it, but even two people as repressed as Jyn and Cassian will have to snap at some point when pushed together in such close quarters…

Okay. Okay but what if.

What if next season, Shiro gets separated from the group again (It’s like a once-a-season thing at this point so you know it’s bound to happen seriously someone put a leash on this guy already) and the team splits up to go find him. And throughout the episode, it seems like each of the rest of the team has managed to find him, but the scene always cuts out before you’re sure, so it’s ambiguous. Until towards the end of the episode when Keith actually manages to find him, and saves him (again) and guides him back towards the meeting place with the others, and you’re like, finally

Only when he gets there, everyone else has a Shiro with them too. And that’s when we find out that the Galra didn’t make one Shiro clone. They made several
