Humans are weird 2

Honestly I’m addicted to these
Terrans are known for being some of the bravest if not stupidly adventurous species, they always go on about their thirst for knowledge and their speeches and monologue about it puts anyone in the mood to explore they make u feel their emotions with their word almost like a spell that projects it in my crew there was an over ecstatic female that was in shock to hear that I really didn’t like being in the exploration crew after being assigned to it I asked her “ What’s so important about this half the planets we find are un inhabitable” she replied with “ How can you not love it what if there is a chance to find sentient life other like us and bring them the joy of this knowledge” another crew member joined in “yeah what is it with terrans and knowledge?” “What is life with out knowing, what is the point of living in ignorance there is so much not discovered so much to learn from maybe it’s just us terrans but learning is like breathing we can’t live with out it back then when earth was still just humans the original terrens they found each other they sailed frontiers explored to know everything about the planet they traveled to the moon to see what else is there what is beyond the horizon and now I like my ancestors before me explore because I can and want to I want to find more learn more bring to my people so they can benefit from it. Us terrans only live so long but record everything what would life be if all we did was eat sleep and die Nothing and we know space is vast and maybe endless but it’s my job to explore Space The Final Frontier” her speech had everyone on the ship with starry eyes looking for more when I asked her about it how did she come up with that speech she just said “it just comes from my heart”

ROOKIE WAS A QUIRKY FUN DRIVEN DANCE TRACK WITH AN UNFORGETTABLE HOOK, WHICH WAS ALSO DESCRIBED BY BILLBOARD AS A POP FUNK SINGLE THAT DREW RED VELVET’S UNCONVENTIONAL MUSICALITY TO COMBINE LOWKEY SING-SPEAKING AND SYNTH BEATS BEFORE BLASTING INTO THE SACCHARINE HOOK OF THE CHORUS BUT PEOPLE STILL HATE ON IT FOR BEING WEIRD WHEN EVERYONE KNOWS THAT RED VELVET SONGS ARE MEANT TO BE WEIRD AND ADDICTIVE. THEY WON 9 MUSIC SHOW AWARDS AND PEAKED NUMBER ONE ON THE BILLBOARD AND GAON ALBUM CHARTS BUT I STILL SEE PPL SHITTING ON ROOKIE WHEN IN ALL HONESTLY THEY JUST NEED TO OPEN THEIR EARS AND REALIZE THAT ROOKIE WAS ONE OF RED VELVET’S BEST SINGLES. THE SINGLE AND ALBUM SHOWED RED VELVET’S ABILTY TO PERFECTLY BALANCE THEIR DOUBLE CONCEPTS!!!

Personally, I'm headcanoning that Time Drift can happen in reverse - if you're stuck in one period, you start to blend into the timestream, like Ray/Kendra/Sara in the 50's. But if you're timeless for too long, you start to lose your sense of self. It might explain the Time Masters being an unnaturally amoral group, in a way, and also might explain stuff like why Jerk-but-for-Reasons S1!Martin was Jerk-for-no-reasons S2!Martin. They're disconnected from their own reality and its eroding them.

I’ve been waiting to answer this ask until I had something more cogent to say than just like *pterodactyl screeching* but it’s not coming to me lol.

I love this headcanon. I’m 100% sure the Legends writers aren’t aiming for that, but it fits and it’s beautiful (and tragic, so tragic?). You can see it for all of them. Like, acknowledging that all of these changes can come from other places, I love to just imagine how Time Drift could’ve catalyzed or exacerbated all of these things:

  • How Sara’s characterization has changed from Arrow to S1 to now. Being captain but also being across time so much, taking pieces of the different eras with her, changing her worldview as time flows around her. She’s a nurse, she’s a witch, she’s Sir Lancelot. She doesn’t think about if she’s leaving pieces of herself behind with each new one she picks up in a new time. She knows she’s different, but can’t quite remember in what way, anymore. 

  • Rip for sure, but he’s known in the longest, felt it the longest, and understands it the deepest. And how having a team changed that for him, how having a family is probably what kept him tethered in time in the first place, more than the average Time Master. Losing himself in memories when he enters the temporal zone, lost whenever he’s not with other people.

  • Martin becoming more of a jerk, talking (thinking?) less and less about Clarissa, less about being a hero on an adventure. Distancing himself from Jax and performing brain surgery on Rory before turning around and being an ass to them both not long after, sort of forgetting all that. What happens in one time seems to stay in that time, for him. 

  • Jax becoming harder. Less focused on what it means to be part of a team, seeming happier when they’re on a mission and he’s on the ground, re-anchored in a time period. He shines when he’s on mission, feels alive no matter what time they’re in. The in-between days are spent focusing on the ship, learning all of the Waverider’s idiosyncracies and nooks and crannies. He loses himself for hours and hours, the passage of time and the sense of isolation not really mattering.

  • Ray never having full left the 50′s behind, still nostalgic for that life and holding part of it dear. Clinging to the Atom suit more than ever because he’s trying to suppress what it was like to have a life without it for a while, what it was like to be happily engaged and in love without all this. Welcoming the Time Drift on the ship and forgetting about it all, drifting away from the memories until he sees Nate and Amaya, until he’s back with Gertie (Gertrude? T-rex anyway) and remembers what it means to feel tethered and holding on to that.

  • Mick emotionally drifting away, drinking on the ship, eating on the ground in a time period. He’s resisting the sensation, like tendrils at the back of his mind, of what it felt like to be Kronos, never tethered in time at all, always afloat. He hates the feeling, and tries to drown it along with the rest of his sorrows. It takes connecting to the team, helping them, to remind him you can be tethered to a person, to people, and not to a time.

  • Leonard becoming untethered from his own past the longer he spent on the Waverider. More enmeshed in his goals, and then in the mission. In changing. Time Drift felt like flux to him, an impetus, a catalyst. Things felt different and he blamed it on not being in Central, not having the mafia and the cops chasing after him and breathing down his neck. But if he trusted himself to dig deeper, he’d have felt the fuzzy edges surrounding that sensation, the pull of the temporal zone putting distance between himself now and himself then. Time doesn’t flow at the Vanishing Point, and his past was so far away when he stepped up to the Oculus to die. Time didn’t feel real, and he cut the strings tethering him to it.

  • And the newcomers now, Nate and Amaya. Who had lives and families and teams before leaving. Who feel like those people are so distant, somehow, and think of them less and less, even though it’s been just a few months. How the present starts to feel like the only thing that matters: the mission. Amaya knows the feeling from the JSA but it’s different here, now. And Nate’s never known it at all. The jolt of excitement at being on the ground in a new time, the feeling that he’s more alive, somehow. He can’t place his finger on it. Neither of them can. Not yet. But Amaya feels like she can’t go back, not know. Her past life is just so… distant. Like it’s less real, somehow. It calls to her, sometimes, shows up unexpectedly in the form of an old teammate in a surprising era. But there is a wrongness to it, now. 

  • It’s hard to go back for any of them. The Hawks were different. They had lived 207 lives, with memories from each. Carter from the future even more so, but he retained no memories of the lives not lived with his beloved. They have always existed across time, and always felt the memory and sway of those past years, of different selves. Time Drift barely touched them, flowing over them like a gentle breeze they almost laughed at. Being in a different era was like a trip down memory lane, ultimately frustrating if they stayed too long. It’s why they were keen to stay in 2016, to forget life in the present, in one time. They’ve always preferred the present.

God I love this song-
I also keep thinking of Shance for some reason?
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
(I mean it might be dark Shiro kind of shance or smutty kind of shance, I dunno, but still ;3)

Dear Reading Slump,

I am writing to ask when are you leaving? I understand that you must visit after particularly good books are done and gone, but why must you stay for so long? I’ve spent my nights trying to read book after book to no avail. I’ve stood in front of my shelves trying to convince myself that I must read a particular book because surely that one will stick. I have opened book after book, read first sentence after first sentence, but there you are, asking me for a snack or a drink or a way to entertain you. 

I understand that we all get lonely sometimes. We all need a companion to egg us on while we binge watch a television show, or talk ourselves into going outside to do regular human being things like meeting up with non-fiction friends. In a way, you are sometimes a friend because your attendance in my life ensures that I do other things that don’t include reading. 

I know what you’re thinking, Reading Slump. You want me to thank you for your services, but actually, no. I need you to piss off. There are about a few dozen books I need and want to read but your constant nagging and hand-holding is starting to wear thin on me. 

Okay, I’m sorry. I may not be going about this the right way. But Reading Slump, old chum. Old Pal. Kindly, just for now and ever more, leave. Just, please, leave me alone. Fade, flip-flop, fly, flee out of here–all of these words are just excuses not to say fuck off, please. 

Sincerely,

Your disgruntled hostess. 

P.S. Please put the seat back down when you’re done using the toilet. 

P.P.S. When you’re done with the eggs, please TELL me. 

P.P.P.S. Stop staring at my stack of books. I’m not lending you any. 

The first popular chewing gum was created by Phillip-Morris and was actually comprised mostly of a menthol chewing tobacco mixed with leftover elastic from belts in their factory that had worn out. The powerful substance gave its consumers, mostly children, strong jitters from the nicotine so they later named it “Uncle Wrigley’s Wiggly Wundergum” and later shortened it to “Wrigley’s.”

I can’t believe I forgot to share this. These are fantastic gifts from @rose-de-noire, my favorite pirate. I’m in love with the little sticky note birds, in particular. There’s already four of them stuck around my room. (I have a birb problem)

Thank you so much, Rose. ❤️
