well one of the parts at least

i like to headcanon that kusanagi is an actual historian

like, 

a.) i’m pretty sure he learned a lot of his disciplinary and general interpersonal strategies from classroom and academic situations, and just added some violence in for spice

b.) he got access to some pretty damn rare german documents during missing kings. you cant just do that. dude definitely has academic contacts. 

c.) he doesnt seem like the type to go for a “happy go lucky” kind of career plan – he probably got at least one degree before becoming a fulltime bartender and focusing on homra

d.) on that subject – yknow what a favorite part time job for broke college students is? bartending. pays well, and doesnt usually conflict w class hours.

there might be stuff in canon ive forgotten that contradicts this but sshhhh i want to imagine kusanagi furthering his education

The officer on scene led them into the building, shaking his head.

“Guy is holed up in the ER, he’s got four nurses and three doctors in there, as well as at least four patients. That doesn’t include your dead sailor.”

“Any demands?” LaSalle asked, patting down his vest to be sure it was secured.

“Just that we don’t go in…I told him to tell me what he wants, he said he doesn’t want us comin’ in, and he just needs time to think, somethin’ about a her, but I don’t know who that is,” the officer replied, shaking his head again as they stopped at the check in near the Emergency Room doors.

The Arkansas Sleep Experiments

by reddit user nazisharks

To Those Who Sleep

This happened a few years ago. You may have heard rumors if you’re on campus. Some even circulated online. Nobody knew what really happened. Because I’m the only one who knows and I kept quiet. For a multitude of reasons. None of them matter now. Here’s what really happened.

The four of us were handpicked for this experiment by Prof. Richardson because we’d all studied under him, worked under him, and, as much as anyone can, earned his confidence.

He said this one was different. We had to keep it quiet. He wanted to keep details to a minimum. All he would tell us before going in was that he required a month of our lives and that if he succeeded sleep would never again be a necessity.

Why the Mario Badescu "rosewater" ain't shit

First of all, let me set this clear this is NOT rosewater and no one from the company has every claimed that its rosewater. Even the name of this spray is “facial spray with aloe, herbs and rosewater”.

Everyone got so easily tricked into thinking its pure rosewater because of the color. Which is caused by the colorants in it, which also are mildly comedogenic and completely unnecessary in skincare, like the whole bottom part of this ingredient list.

It has WATER listed as the first ingredient, which almost always means that its ay least 80% water, in this case it must be about 95% at least because of its consistency. The second one is propylene glycol which is similar to glycerin.
Meaning YOU CAN MAKE THIS AT HOME using 2 ingredients: water and glycerin. it will cost you about $0.50.
Not to mention that you can make your own real rosewater at home and it costs esentially nothing as well.
This mist contains 5 fragrance ingredients. Which are so unnecessary and highly irritatining to the skin meaning it can cause acne, redness, rashes, eczema flare ups and general worsening of the skin condition. 2 of the fragrance ingredients are geraniol and citronellol, highly irritating allergens which you should never ever put on your face.

Also to add onto this, I would never buy from MB because of their use of steroids in skin care, UNLISTED in the ingredient lists. It caused many people to go through painful withdarwal symptoms. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/lawsuit-filed-against-mario-badescu-for-undisclosed-steroids-279184841.html

Also before you add on this post saying how you love this spray and how youve been using it for 822049 years and its amazing; i literally dont care at all. Like good for you, youre literally spending $7 on something you can make a better version of at home for almost nothing stop typing or you’ll end up looking like a fool.

Tools for Mentally Ill Students #1

Hey guys! So I’ve been thinking a lot about what I use to control my mental health and keep me on track to recovery. Little things that make life easier for when everything seems hard. They’re not going to work miracles, but they can at least help, so I thought I’d share them with you. Here’s part one.

The DBT Wellness Planner

This planner uses dialetical behaviour therapy to help you bring order to your life and keep track of your emotions. I received it as a gift a few months ago and it has helped SO much. I really recommend this.

Anxiety and Worry Workbook

A lot of students cannot access therapy, whether because of money or your family or whatever. Workbooks can help you start developing skills by yourself. It’s hard, but if you put just a small amount of time into it consistently, you could really help yourself overcome symptoms. Add it to your schedule like homework. I have chosen this workbook because anxiety is something so many students struggle with.

Fidget Pen

We all know by now that fidget toys can be more distracting than anything. However, a lot of people with anxiety and similar symptoms can find fidget toys grounding. This pen is perfect for study, as it’s less likely to be taken away from you by an ignorant teacher. Just make sure you’re the kind of person who is helped by these things!

Sleep Supplement

Sleep is something most students struggle with, and the side effects can be seriously damaging to your mental health. You may be able to get a sleep aid from your doctor, but many don’t prescribe them to young people for fear of them forming a habit. A natural sleep supplement might be a good alternative. Though they don’t work for everyone, and are not as strong as prescription meds, supplements with things like melatonin, magnesium, and valerian root can give you a little extra push towards sleep. I find them especially useful when I can’t sleep because of anxiety. (Always keep in mind your specific body and needs before taking supplements).

Pill Reminder Clock / Reminder Bottle / Portable Bag

Remembering to take meds can be hard. Even apps can be easy to miss and ignore. That’s why I’ve added three different options to help you remember your meds. The first is an amazing alarm clock that says stuff like “Good morning, please remember to take your morning pills”. The second is pill bottles with caps that automatically count down from when you last took your meds. The third is a set of containers that fit into a small, discreet portable bag. 

Fitness Tracker

Regular exercise can be vital to help you regulate emotions and sleep. A fitness tracker can help you keep this up. You don’t have to fork out for a Fitbit, especially since you’re a student. There are plenty of cheaper options out there. One like this, with a heart rate monitor, can also be good for tracking anxiety. 

Intake-Tracking Water Bottle

We’ve all heard it a million times- we should drink more water. It’s not gonna cure us, but it does help our overall health. However, it can be hard to remember to drink enough, which is where bottles like this come in. It’s clearly marked showing you how much you should have drunk by different times of the day.

Altean!Lance with a twist

So we all see the posts about how Altean!Lance is Allura’s brother, the prince, or even just a common Altean that holds no title, and we all love us some Altean!Lance.

But what about…………..Lance being Haggar’s kid? Like seriously how has no one thought of this!

Lance being born and raised to be a Druid, always following the empire’s orders, always doing what his mother wants to try and get the love and attention he needs; he even went through experimentation at the hands of his mother to get any sort of praise from her, which after everything, she only called him a disappointment of a subject. He trains constantly, both physically and magically for years, hoping that that would get him some sort of affection. He becomes one of the top druids, besides his mother, in the empire and if anyone were to try and take him on in physical combat, they would severely regret it. But After all those years of allowing experiments and following every terrible order from Haggar and Zarkon to try and please his mother, to try and get any sort of acknowledgement from her, he pretty much gives up. He knows what’s expected of him, and he knows that he’ll never get what he truly wants. He accepts that, and just considers it normal behavior by now. He knows the best way to please his mother is by following orders, so that’s what he does.
He’s 13 years old.

Now fast forward 4 years. He gets a new assignment. He has to go to some planet called Earth and infiltrate their government to see if they will be easy to conquer, and if any of the lions are there. Lance agrees without question.

So he goes down to Earth and easily takes the form of human to blend in, and he gets pretty much adopted by the McClain’s, who thought he was a runaway or a street kid. When they ask about his family, he plays it safe and says he doesn’t have any. So of course they take him in and begin raising him like one of their own. Lance is just shocked to see how this family treats each other with such love and kindness and understanding. And when that love and kindness get shown to him, he nearly loses his cool and release his form. While he was able to keep his form the same, his freak it was not so easily hidden, at least not in the the eyes of actual loving parents. They teach him about how family REALLY works. About how much loyalty and support and positivity comes with it. They slowly get him used to physical comfort and along the way Lance realizes that he doesn’t want to leave. He likes it here on Earth, where he’s actually treated as a person, as family. Not some soldier. But Lance is too scared to refuse his mother’s and Zarkon’s orders. He’s seen what they do to traitors and he knows that he won’t be given any mercy just because he’s Haggar’s son. But he also wants to protect these people that have taught him the truth about family and loyalty, he doesn’t want the empire to destroy this world like he’s seen with so many others. Lance doesn’t know what to do.

He goes outside to try and clear his head; which is where his mama (she refused for him to call her anything else besides her first name or mama) and asks him what’s wrong. He wants to tell her everything but he’s not sure if he can tell her; if she’ll believe him or call him crazy or what so he just stays quiet. Mama decides to talk instead, about how much they all love him, about how they’re all so happy they met him and took him in. About how no matter what life may throw at him, no matter how bad, Lance could always come to them. That’s how Lance made up his mind. He’s going to ignore his orders; even if that makes him a traitor to his real mother. He didn’t care. He was going to protect this family. HIS family.

He joins the Garrison to do just that. He plans on making it to fighter pilot and get through the school as fast as he can so he can protect his family faster. Unfortunately, Earth ships are primitive compared to Galran, so Lance doesn’t do so well and ends up in the cargo pilot class. Thus where he meets Hunk and befriends him (most of the effort was from Hunk) and gains abut of a rivalry with Keith since he had beaten Lance’s score by a few points, taking the last spot in the fighter class.

Of course then we lead into episode one, and the team finds the Blue lion, and meeting Allura and Coran, and if that isn’t a surprise to Lance, then I don’t know what is. Of course he still keeps his actual identity a secret, fearing what Allura and Coran would do if they found out who he really was. This is also where Lance is trying to figure out why Blue chose him. He was the son of a traitor to his race. He has helped the Galra in unspeakable ways. He can’t figure out why the Blue Lion chose him.

So Lance is now fighting against the empire he was once apart of, trying to undo the wrongs that have been done to hundreds of others.
All the while trying to hide himself from Haggar and Zarkon, at least for as long as he can. He knows one day, the beans are gonna spill, and it will not end well. But he’ll do his best to give himself some time to figure out how to tell the team the truth about himself and his past.

anonymous asked:

I really fucking love sheith, but I have this nagging feeling that Shiro doesn't love Keith as much as Keith loves him, or at least won't go as far as Keith would to get him back. Thoughts?

oh man, i’m really glad someone asked this. i think the way shiro acts toward/around keith is one of the most well produced parts of vld. they do such an incredible job with shiro’s character in general, but so much of his character depth is centered on keith. no matter how you interpret their relationship, the fact that they love each other is never in question, and it’s done so well:

that’s shiro’s keith… face and it shows up literally dozens of times. keith is so forward about showing how much he cares, but with shiro we get these really deliberate and subtle animation and acting cues:

that smile, ouch. and then the way his eyes linger on keith for a moment, even after pidge shows up? that’s not an accident. josh keaton also does an incredible job with these moments: (much… much more under the cut.)

A. Claire’s Identity....REVEALED???

No. Well, probably not. But I think I have a pretty decent guess? 

My Jude post is going to take a little while longer, and once I put these pieces together it didn’t take much to make things fall into place, and turned out to be pretty quick to put together.

I don’t usually do outright speculation, I tend to dislike doing so. But this feels solid enough that I’m willing to at least mention it, and more than that its simply interesting to think about, so while we wait for Hiveswap: Act 2, I figure we may as well mull over this possibility.

So, humor me.

A. Claire is a pretty mysterious figure. She seems to come out of nowhere to shake up Homestuck’s core cast, and she seems to know more about the game than we ever confirmed for any other Guardian, barring Pa himself. 
Why does she seem so connected to the Cherub Key? How on earth did she paint a mural of the green sun??? What’s her deal! 

There’s no precedent for a character quite like the mysterious actress, and seemingly no background profile that would explain how she knows what she knows. Except, of course, for the obvious one. The one we’ve overlooked.

CONFESSION:

I don’t like it how some people in this fandom criticize characters like Cullen for having bad viewpoints due to a traumatic event when he was younger and more ignorant, while they themselves stay completely ignorant to how much he grew and how different his views are in DA:I, not to mention that they most often praise characters with their own bad past = bad decisions/views arcs like Solas, Anders, Fenris, etc., some of which don’t even end up changing their minds.

I personally like and try to understand all of them as much as I can and it confuses me how some people can blatantly loathe one of them like they made some serious personal offense against them and plain out bully those who disagree while excusing the actions and previous/current opinions of other similar characters.

Things aren’t black or white, not in the entire DA lore, not for any of them and extreme hatred towards those characters who feel very much burdened by their past views and at least try to change their ways, as well as towards the part of them fandom that likes them in any way is just unfair and cruel.

I’m done with you, Mr. Wayne - Bruce Wayne x Reader (angst?)

First, thank you very much for your comment, and then here for a somewhat angsty story based off your prompt  :-) ( I never know if I achieved my goal in making people feel with my stories so you know…). Hope you’ll like it :

Dear Dreamworks and Studio Mir,

This probably won’t reach any of you people, but I just want to say on behalf of the whole VLD fandom(or at least the reasonable part of it) - we’re sorry.
We’ve been giving you a whole lot of bullshit lately, well, actually there was a little bullshit since the very beginning but now it escalated terribly, but the point is that you did not deserve this. No one does. I am sorry for all the discourses and ridiculous behavior, constant whining, bitching and complaining and generally I am- we all are - sorry about being so fucking extra 96% of the time.
We are especially sorry about the leaks and all the drama caused over them. It really isn’t fair from us to be like this.
Our, most deepest, sincerest apologies,

The VLD fandom(or at least all the reasonable members)

PS: I understand ppl who see this will be like ‘who does she think she is talking like this as if she some ambassador or something’ and you wouldn’t be entirely wrong but I just felt like it would be right to say something. The least we owe is an apology. So yea, once again, SORRY, SO MUCH SORRY.

Supernatural Shenanigans Aside | @lissadiane | 3,754 | Not Rated | 2017-08-01

In which Stiles Stilinski accompanies Derek Hale to the county fair to keep the citizens of Beacon Hills safe from supernatural shenanigans…

Which totally isn’t a date.


The Jacket Was A Move | @LadyDrace | 1,913 | Teen | 2017-08-04

Derek is a jock and infinitely cooler than Stiles and his nerdy friends. That doesn’t stop Stiles from having a massive crush on him, though.


I’m tired and I’m wasted, irrational | LunaCanisLupus_22 ( @i-sveikata ) | 8,170 | Explicit | 2017-07-31

Derek reads the message twice just to be sure that he isn’t dreaming.

Help, it reads, accidntly kidnpd somr dudew

He takes a moment to compose his reply. What the hell Laura?

Or the one where Laura wakes him up in the middle of the night because she’s kidnapped some random guy from the club and it turns out he’s Derek’s mate.


A Tale as Old as Time | Leslie_Knope ( @leslieknopeismyspiritanimal ) | 5,931 | Teen | 2017-08-02

Derek wakes up 12 years later in a world where, for some reason, Stiles is naked.

Well, at least the sheets are comfortable.


Try Again | dragon_temeraire ( @dragon-temeraire ) | 1274 | Teen | 2017-08-02

Derek has to egg a house to be part of the popular group. Too bad the house ends up being the Sheriff’s.


Find Me Sitting Fireside | @kaistrex | 13,282 | Teen | 2016-12-17

With the news that an Alpha wants Beacon Hills for their own, Derek and Stiles are forced to attend a couples retreat at a ski resort to learn their enemy’s identity. However, the threat is the least of Derek’s problems when he’s expected to fake a relationship, share a bed and suffer through candlelit dinners with the man he’s secretly been in love with for the past four years.


The Epic Space Opera of Stiles Stilinski and Sergeant Spacewolf | A_Diamond ( @alxdiamond ) | 4,808 | Teen | 2017-06-29

Beacon Station is an extraplanetary center of research and exploration. Human scientist and minor disaster Stiles Stilinski lives there, as does the grumpiest alien ever: Derek Hale, the titular Sergeant Spacewolf himself. After a rocky start to their acquaintance, they’ve settled into sort of a love-hate relationship, wherein Stiles pines and provokes in approximately equal measure, and Derek grudgingly tolerates.

When a mechanical failure leaves them stranded together in the vacuum of space, the impending doom of almost certain death forces the truth of their feelings to the fore. Will our heroes finally get together? Will it even matter? Will they survive the danger?

(Yes, yes, and yes. There wouldn’t be a story to tell otherwise.)


Dancing On Blades | @tryslora | 28,266 | Teen | 2017-06-26

When Derek discovers that Mieczysław “Stiles” Stilinski–known for his YouTube videos of skating, not his competitions–is going to be at Nationals, attempting to make the Olympic team, he has to go. After all, Stiles learned ALL FIVE of Derek’s Worlds routines and posted video of each one to YouTube. He sees something in this unknown skater, something that only Stiles’s reclusive coach seemed to see before. And when Stiles manages to claim one of the three coveted spots, Derek makes an offer that Stiles can’t refuse: Derek will coach him to win Olympic gold. The hard part? There are only two weeks between Nationals and the Olympics…


Bloody Palms and Red Eyes | @rlnerdgirl | 4,017 | Teen | 2017-06-25

Having asked Deaton for advice after losing his alpha power, Derek finds himself approaching a palm reader, of all things, who goes by the name of Stiles and isn’t anything like what Derek is expecting.


Kidnapping Boys Doesn’t Make Them Like You (Or Does It?) | Dani Mahealani ( @derekczyslaw ) | 1,816 | Gen | 2017-08-06

“Hey, he’d be lucky to have you as a boyfriend. It’s just my job as your older sister to tease you.”

He looks up to see her giving him one of her warm smiles, one that doesn’t give him nightmares. “I don’t even know if he likes guys,” he says after a few moments.

“I can think of a few ways to find out.”

Derek’s eyebrows twist in confusion and he’s fairly certain he doesn’t want to know what sorts of plans she has in mind. “Just let me handle it, alright? I can do it.”

Laura gets up from her chair and comes around to his side of the table to ruffle his hair. “Never be afraid of asking for help, Der. You have a big sister for a reason.” She steals a sip of his Coke before heading upstairs to her room.

Not for the first time that night, Derek presses his face into his arms and groans.

or the one where laura and peter kidnap stiles because derek likes him

foofoocuddlypoopsgavesokkaapples  asked:

Can you do more of that mafia au? Like, the team's reaction when they learn abt it through a mind meld thing and shiro is all like "You're a Salazar?!" And it causes shit. Also, can the dad be named Ernesto? Like, I was watching a Mexican telenovela in Spanish class and there was a mafia leader named Ernesto Salazar. It's called "La Tempestad" if you wanna watch it. I hope you do, it's really good.

I still don’t know how the MafiaAU gained a lot of attention (why did this gained a lot of attention? Can someone tell me the reason? I think we all just want to see Iverson to go down.) but here is Part 2. Oh, I like it. Okay, I’ll name the Dad as ‘Ernesto’. I’ll try to watch that show when I get the chance :) .

Warnings: OOCness, AU, some grammatical errors.


After five years of fighting against a war that was on going for the past ten thousand years, Allura finally got the chance to grant the wishes of her Paladins to temporarily go back home. Sure, there were still loose ends that were supposed to be taken care of but it wouldn’t hurt to let the other planetary leaders to handle it for a while. After all, everyone agreed that team Voltron needed some well-deserved vacation.

Throughout all those five years, Allura learned a lot of stuff from her Paladins and in return she watched them grew more as a human and as a soldier. They taught her how to have fun from time to time and cherish every minute of relaxation with her second family. They taught her that she should not devote her whole life fighting, that she had people watching her back and would never judge her if she would trip and fall. They taught her that it was fine to make mistakes as long as she would learn to reflect upon those said mistakes. And most of all, they taught her to trust them indefinitely.

If there was one Paladin that confused her the most then Allura would definitely chose Lance.

The Blue Paladin initially showed himself as this person that never took things seriously unless it was a life and death situation, flirty in a point that always leave Allura exasperated (but later on she accepted it as part of Lance’s nature and she would not change it in any other way), say things that sound idiotic some of the times but a good strategist especially in abrupt situations like being trapped or ambushed by the enemies. All in all, Lance was a human that always contradicted himself from the way he let others know him. At least that how Allura had perceived it.

Lance even became the face and voice of Voltron when it comes to diplomatic situations. Sure, Allura was the Princess and Shiro was the leader of the Paladins, but they could never mirror Lance’s charisma and the way he weaved his words to gain the favour of important individuals. From these situations, Allura eventually learned that some flirting of Lance was used to make the other person to let their guard down and gain their trust. It was as if Lance was trained ever since he could speak on how to have such silver tongue.

A bit of praise in here, a bit of touch there, a little bit of a dance, a little bit of sympathy, and Voltron already gained a new ally by the end of the night. All thanks to Lance.

Shiro once tried to open the discussion about family backgrounds. Pidge and Hunk ended up crying in that session because they suddenly realized how much they missed their blood relatives. Keith tried to play it down on how he didn’t have a family to miss on Earth but he still didn’t get away from the group hug. Lance simply smiled sadly and mumbled something along the lines of ‘at least I cut off some ties…still miss my Mom’s hugs though…’. Shiro attempted to make Lance to speak more about it but the Blue Paladin remained silent for the rest of the session.

They all changed a lot in the course of five years.

Lance’s changed though was like a flip of the switch.

After that hysteric laughter that one fateful breakfast and with an added disturbing explanation, Lance started acting as if the weight of the world was finally off his shoulders. His shooting skills improved in a speed level that Allura was inclined to think that Lance was born with a gun on his hands. His hand to hand combat didn’t rely on strength alone but more in flexibility. Allura never thought that dancing could also be used as a form of combat. As days passed, Lance gave a few opinions here and there on their battle strategies that ended up with them having low casualties compared to the initial plans.

What bothers Allura the most though…was the way Lance gathered his information. He was not like Pidge that hacks in the system. No, Lance liked to do his information gathering in person. Often times it was the Blue Paladin who corners commanders of the ships they were raiding. Lance would take a lot of time but eventually he would return with more information than they have gathered from the ship’s database. The specks of bloods on his body though didn’t escape Allura, Coran, and Shiro’s attention. All of them have the same assumption that Lance used torture to get what he wanted.

It was an assumption that was never proven but could not be denied also. Allura feared that it was her fault that Lance changed so drastically, that he showed more thirst for blood like a soldier excited for a new battle, all because she pushed her Paladins in a war that they were not aware that was happening in the first place.

But all of it was better left in the back of her mind for now. Today was a day for her Paladins, a few months on Earth would do them some good. They explained to her and Coran that it was much better if the Earth’s government would still remain unaware of the existence of other life forms outside of Earth. Hunk and Pidge told her that humans might be in par with the Galra when it comes to experimenting the unknown. Most humans would rather treat aliens like mindless animals than creatures with feelings. Shiro suggested to them that it was better to leave the Castle of Lions outside of Earth’s radar, meaning they needed to stop out of the Milky Way Galaxy, and just use the pods to get near to their home planet.

Surprisingly, it was Lance who suggested a safe place to land. They left the Castle in the hands of a few friends they managed to have through the years of fighting the Galra empire and set course for the coordinates that Lance gave to them.


Hunk was so excited to finally meet Lance’s family…wait, that could probably be said a bit better but that was what he still meant. Hunk never had the opportunity to visit Lance’s home and family even if they had been friends for years. It was always Lance who visited Hunk during vacations and holidays and never the other way around. So for Lance to suggest a place to land and when he realized that it was the beloved beach that the Blue Paladin always talked about with his best friend, Hunk could not contain his excitement. 

“We’re here!!!” Hunk heard the enthusiastic scream coming from Lance and chuckled himself when Shiro shouted words of caution to their Blue Paladin, which was went unheard due to the happy cheers.

One by one they all followed Lance and soon reached the only building found in the area, at least the area that could only be reached by their eyes.

Through all the years they had traveled in outer space, Hunk saw a lot of vacation houses. He saw a lot and it was enough to say that the one if front of them could be classified as one. The house itself might be 250 square meters, excluding the garden part, it has three floors with a rooftop and balcony. The color scheme was a mix between shades of blue and streaks of white, ocean waves and Earth sea creatures adorned the walls while tropical flowers was engraved in the pillars and glass windows.

Long story short, it was like a vacation house owned by a very rich family.

“¡Bienvenido a mi casa!” Lance said with outstretched arms to emphasize the house behind him, “Well…at least for now. This is not the main house after all. But make yourself at home to my vacation house! Tomorrow we will take a plane to Italy and meet my whole family!” he was about to run away again but Hunk held him firm this time before leaving them behind.

“Wait, Lance, buddy, my friend, what do you mean by ‘going to Italy and meet my whole family’ thing?”

“Also, did you just said that this is your vacation house?! Are you some kind of rich kid here on Earth?!” Pidge was clutching her hair, that has grown past her shoulders, as if it could help her making sense of the information she had just been given.

“Um…oops?”

“Oops? Oops?! That’s all you can say?! Why you—!”

“Relax, Pidgeon!” Lance put his hands in surrender, “Let’s take a rest for now! I’ll answer your questions tomorrow once we got to that main house!”

Pidge was still steaming with mix emotions but decided to let it go with an angry huffed. Lance might be the most talkative human she had ever met but he rarely pull out personal information like family backgrounds.

“Okay now? Follow me!”

As they were walking towards the entrance, Keith asked an important question, “How are you so sure that this place still belongs to you? I mean, it’s been five years, right?”

Lance looked back at the group with a playful smile on his face.

“I just know it. Besides, this place was a gift for me by the Decimo himself.”

Decimo?

That was the question that revolved around everyone’s mind. Allura and Coran was just confused by the baffled expression of the rest of the Paladins towards Lance so they opted to stay quiet. This was not their planet after all. They still don’t know the majority of human customs due to its diversities.

Before Lance could knock, the door suddenly opened and they were greeted by a scene that they thought could only be found by exaggerated movies. For before them, four maids to the right and four butlers to the left were lined in a row. Judging from the posture of the man and woman who opened the door it was safe to assume that they were the heads.

What caught Shiro’s attention though was the banner that was proudly displayed on the wall directly on the path of the entrance. It had the symbol of a beautiful mermaid with her tail wrapped around a bullet and the sides were designed with twin towers. It was a very familiar insignia for Shiro and he was sure he had seen it during his years in Japan.

Everything clicked in though when the maids and butlers spoke simultaneously.

“Welcome back, Young Master Lance Salazar.”

Shiro looked at Lance like he had just seen him for the very first time. The others just felt their jaws dropped at the sudden revelation.

“You’re a Salazar?! As in that Salazar?! Salazar Familia?!”

This time, Lance gave them a mischievous smirk that was clearly up to no good.

“Oops.” There was no remorse or guilt laced tone when Lance said that.

McCree, Deadlock, Domestic Terrorism and why Gabriel Reyes would Recruit Jesse rather than throw him in a Cell.

So @iamwalkingdead1 and I were looking around the Route 66 map and spit-balling about why Gabriel Reyes would raid the Deadlock gang and recruit Jesse McCree.

Okay so first things first. We know that Jesse McCree was brought into Overwatch by Gabriel Reyes at the age of about 17 and up to that point he had formerly been part of the Deadlock gang in a tiny Route 66 town. However, why would Gabriel Reyes and by extension Blackwatch ever concern themselves with a small town gang, even if one of their members was a good shot?

The answer? Deadlock was NOT just some small town gang. They were much closer to a domestic terrorist group, and the hints to this can be seen on the Route 66 map.

The first Defense spawn on the map is a propane business that is explicitly owned by the Deadlock gang, most likely as a front business (which isn’t uncommon as they are the primary ways groups would need to launder their money).

But then there’s this:

The either the gang is named for the town or the town has become named for the gang. What becomes increasingly clear is that the gang has a hold on the town, from seeing their tag all over the place to evidence of them being able to freely take over businesses in the area, especially evident if you look at the Diner/Attack spawn.

The Deadlock gang has blatantly taken over the diner to serve as a forward post for an operation.

What kind of operation?

The Theft of Military grade hardware, straight from a government train.

If Deadlock is can steal military ordinance directly from the government, how many times have they done this before and how well equipped are they?

For the latter question, they are pretty damn well.

Weapons, rations, stolen corporate equipment from Lumerico and at least one other company, MISSILES, computer components, and a LOT more unidentified items. This is not the set up of some small town gang, this is the stockpile of a group with real power to do some serious damage beyond this small town.

The most benign thing that I could possibly imagine this group being a part of is Arms Dealing. 

But then I also saw a few things like this:

Patriotic memorabilia and evidence of an a hit being placed on McCree.

Now, in the US there are well documented cases of far-right domestic terrorist groups. These groups are often well-armed, set up in remote areas to train their members in paramilitary skills, and are often ultra-nationalists (even if they view the government as evil). Another aspect of these groups is that they can be extremely fanatical or even cult-like in their maintained group thinking.

Being that McCree was orphaned at a young age and grew up in a town where the gang was clearly the dominant power, it would have been simple for them to induct him into their group with out him being able to fully question it.

All of this provides ample reason for Overwatch to decide to raid Blackwatch. After the operation and having taken prisoners the best case scenario for most of those taken alive would be life in a cell, and that’s where McCree was headed as well until Reyes intervened. McCree was then presented with the ultimatum, “Join Blackwatch or rot with your friends.”

With the cult like thinking of domestic terrorist groups and having been a part of them as a child McCree was made a child-soldier by this group in all but name. At the age of 17 and with the seriousness of the groups crimes Jesse was definitely being treated as an adult and the higher-ups probably weren’t thinking about what would have actually been needed for McCree, such as de-programming and years of psychological help and readjustment. Serving in Blackwatch was the going to be the best chance anyone would have of breaking the mindset Deadlock would have likely instilled into McCree, even if that way of going about it would be morally dubious at best. This is speculation, but Reyes probably brought Jesse into Blackwatch in an attempt to potentially change the direction of his life.

Fast-forward to the present; McCree having left Overwatch is wanted for his past crimes (Blackwatch didn’t “officially” exist so the government and Overwatch agents are also illegal) and Deadlock is none to happy about his leaving way back when and even have people ready to take him out should he ever return to their town.

Who Killed Markiplier Thoughts.

Just managed to watch it now and I need to get all my thoughts out rn while they’re fresh.

The Colonel and the Mayor? Two new egos maybe or two existing egos in disguise? The Colonel definitely reminds me of Warfstache, but the Mayor I don’t really see a connection to any of the other egos. Perhaps Dark though, since we know he’s good at playing a part, he does so well in ADWM.

Going off the plot to CLUE the film based on Cluedo that came out in 1985 (and there are spoilers for the film here so if you haven’t seen it and want to don’t read this part) the butler was the one who killed the “victim” because of blackmail that his master had about him…or something along those lines but I think it’s a little too obvious to think that Mark and Teamiplier would go along the same plot line as an already existing film.

The Fnaf noises during the security cam scene was freaky but also potentially something? Like maybe pointing to something more sinister happening in the house? But at least we know who Little Buddy is now, but not why he has a KILL mode. 

Honestly it sort of gave more questions that it did answers, but there was so much there for theorising with:

The Colonel shows a “two pair” hand in the drunk scene, which is the third lowest hand you can have in Poker, but with Aces included it can be a winner. So, there’s potential motive there, and from his “narration” of what happened when Mark died, there does seem to be some animosity between them for some reason, whether it’s from that night or something in the past.

We know the Mayor, the Colonel and Mark have known each other a long time, considering the argument that the Mayor and the Colonel have, and the Colonel states he does care, he’s just not crying over Mark’s death. He’s the quickest to really want to help, and the only one to give a proper “idea” of how Mark died, but he admits it’s all speculation, and he would be a likely suspect, since he is seen with a gun in the drunk scene, and in the original game of Cluedo, Colonel Mustard was normally portrayed as a hunter. He also fills his gun with only one bullet, like Russian Roulette. 

Later in the scene as well, we see the Detective with a look of despair on his face, and it looks like a continued scene of the one where the Colonel shows his two pair. It could still point at motive, if he thought he had a good hand and then Mark turned around and beat him, especially since in the “narration” Mark has a lot of poker chips in front of him.

The Detective has a few scenes where he seems to be involved in violence, there are a few scenes where he has a sort of angry expression when looking at us the viewer, and he does fight with the Colonel as well (although the Colonel wins because he has him in a choke hold), so this video did set up really well that any one of them could be suspects. 

My gut feeling tells me that the Chef knows more than he’s letting on, but I don’t think hes involved with a murder. And the butler is not as methodical, nor as “innocent” as he seems. Why take us down to the wine cellar? For no other reason than there was a broken bottle which he then proceeded to freak out over? It just seems strange.

And the Mayor seems to be painted as an innocent one, going to do work before the body appears, arriving last into the room (bar the Colonel) and then needing some time because of his “childhood friend”. But he also says, “I’m not entirely sure what we’re supposed to be celebrating here, I mean, it’s good to have the gang back together, but out of the blue like this seems-.” and then he cuts off. So he clearly has thoughts on what’s happening, but he doesn’t want to share them for whatever reason. 

The arrival of @whokilledmarkiplier is interesting as well, especially since the Jims show up? So are the egos going to play a bigger part in all of this as well? Are they investigating Mark’s murder, or are the Jim’s providing us the viewer with vital clues? If Mark has known the Mayor at least since childhood, could it be something the other egos have set up to get to him? Is Mark even actually dead, or is it a ploy to get one of the other characters?

So many questions.

I loved the entire thing though it was amazing done. Kudos to @markiplier and Teamiplier for everything in it, the shots were amazing, the acting was great and it was hilarious. 

Especially the broken bottle scene. 

Explaining Vikings And Other Barbaric Badasses

Now I’m a huge fan of the show Vikings, and my heritage comes from all over the world including that particular line. But my mother repeatedly expressed her pride on 3 of her ancestors, Native American’s, Germans, and the fuck mothering Vikings. It got me thinking… How the hell would we politely inform an alien that our past ancestors not only excelled at torture and bloodshed, but some cultures like Vikings took it to an unbelievable level. I imagine it would go something like so: 

—————————————————————————
“Human-Erica, I have a question regarding something we had discussed in our,” Grek’laz cleared his throat and moved one of his elongated arms to cover his mouth, a human like movement he had adopted while attempted to gather his thoughts upon speaking to one of the six humans aboard their ship. “Our um,” he tried to find the right words to discuss what he had learned, “Our Human Cultural Class. It was a brief history detailing the predatory and hearty nature of humans.” 

Erica brushed her hair behind her ear, raising a brow curiously. Grek’laz among many other species had often come to her and the other humans with questions regarding their Death World up bringing, it was rather fun seeing them learn something new about their species. “Grek you can ask anything, I told you all before. What’d you learn today?” 

Grek’laz pointed to above Erica’s bed with two of his tendril like fingers. The tall alien creature easily dwarfed the human before him, but the stories they had heard made him instinctively hunch forward, a method his species used to appear non-hostile. It didn’t help the humans had told him the smaller of their species could be the more violently inclined, a claim he hadn’t yet learned was a joke or serious.  Where he pointed at, there lay a blade behind some ancient and primitive symbol. The blade had strange yet simply carvings, and was rusted by the thousands of years it had been handled by the family. “That weapon, the… You claimed it was a sword, if my words are correct. We learned those symbols belonged to a tribe of warrior humans from you pre-technological era. Called ‘Vi-kin-gs’,” he slowly pulled the words out as he expressed it with the upmost respect. 

Erica kept her brow raised and nodded slowly, “Yes, and?” she encouraged him to continue. 

“We heard that these… Vikings… Were some of the most concerning warriors of their time? But that they… Revealed in battle? Craved it even?” He asked with hope that it was not true. He knew humans were seen as a military force not to be trifled with, but the ones he had known were peaceful, to think there use to be a clan that craved nothing more than battle was, to him, terrifying. 

Erica merely nodded, “Yep, my ancestors were Norse, or viking as they were called as well. They were some crazy bastards, the old beliefs they held said that to enter the highest of the heavens with honor meant you had to die bravely in battle. Only true warriors did. This lead them to be pretty creative, to say the least, in areas of hurting.” 

Grek’laz gulped, rubbing the back of its neck nervously, “I… I do not understand?” He questioned. He was morbidly curious. Though part of him did not wish to know. 

“The Blood Eagle, was something one of my ancestors went through if you want to believe the old tale.” 

“B-Blood Eagle?” He gulped again, “That sounds terrifying alone, dare I ask what it was?” 

“Do you dare?” She smirked, showing off the dense and wicked teeth all humans possessed. He nodded, much to his own dismay. “It was a fascinating process, though admittedly brutal beyond all standards. One of my ancestors had made a grave offense and attempted to steal the land of a Jarl, a ruler of such, and this Jarl was brothers to the King of all the land. My ancestor was punished with the Blood Eagle. It was said if you could take the pain without wincing, you would enter the heavens called Valhalla. But if you winced or cried out, you be damned.” She cleared her throat, hoping to spare Grek some of the details. The Elorians were more pacifist than most species. “They started by cutting your back open with a knife,” she could already see him flinch and look more and more nervous. “They then break open the back of the ribs, sometimes hammering them open. Then finally they pull the lungs out and rest them on your shoulders to look like the folded wings of an eagle.” 

Grek’laz looked as though he was about to vomit, just imaging the process made him sick. “Your ancestor … I weep for the torture, he must’ve been in such pain.” 

“Who knows? Stories say he never even made a sound, other then to scream to the Gods they believed in that he was coming very soon.” She chuckled softly. This was funny to her? Grek was truly terrified.

“Your world truly faced a monster, no offense, Human-Erica.” Grek gulped again in a panic. 

“Oh those were just the Vikings, humans all over the world were doing stuff on that level.” 

“THEY WHAT?!? YOU’RE KIND ACTIVELY TRIED TO FIND MORE CREATIVE METHODS OF INJURING AND HURTING EACH OTHER?”

“Oh Grek … I really hope they tell you about the Spanish Inquisition,” Erica laughed before patting his side, for his shoulder was at least 2 feet higher than her. “I’m heading to the mess hall, join me if you want,” she nodded before making her way out. 

“I believe… I have lost my appetite,” he grumbled quietly. Humans… They were terrifying because they remembered these practices, whose to say they didn’t plan to use them if their enemies deserved it?

As you guys probably know this year the Ghibli food exhibition is running at the Studio Ghibli Museum in Mitaka Tokyo and of course the Straw Hat Cafe has changed their menu in parts to fit the Ghibli food themed items! The one themed item I got was this beautiful mini Kiki cake from the film which was soooo rich and chocolatey and had walnuts in the base. Well at least I hope the pork cutlet sandwich wasn’t Porco Rosso themed! :P

I couldn’t help but have the same as my first trip 3 years ago and had to get the “for hungry persons” pork cutlet sandwich as it’s described in the menu which tastes absolutely beautiful and is a fillet of beautiful pork breaded and sliced and place into a toasted sandwich with veg which is absolutely one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever tasted. The soda is just amazing of course and the cafe atmosphere is so quaint and perfect but filled with natural delicious foods. I saw someone else get the toast and eggs from Laputa which Sheeta and Pazu share that looked so amazing and presented just as in the film! I’m going back in 2 days and of course I will have to try something completely different and show all of you on here :D thanks for looking :D

Headcanon: Meeting your dad, Tony Stark, for the first time

Originally posted by fuckyeahtonystark

  • Your mother had been in the hospital for months, and you both knew she wasn’t going to get any better. A few weeks before she passed, she finally opened up about your parentage.
    • “I should have told you sooner. You shouldn’t have to find out just because I’m not gonna be here any longer… You’re a Stark, darling. Tony Stark is your father. He doesn’t know. I’m sorry for not telling you sooner.” 
  • You were shocked needless to say
  • A month after her funeral you realized that you couldn’t quite make it on your own. At least, you couldn’t afford to live in an apartment in NYC by yourself. And unfortunately you didn’t really have anyone you could share an apartment with. Not that you trusted anyway. 
  • It still took you another week and a half to build up the courage to walk into Stark Tower. 
  • But once you were in the doors your head was held up high and you marched right up to the receptionist. 
    • “I’d like to see Mr. Stark. It’s urgent. I won’t take no for an answer.” 
  • She seemed less than amused, pursing her lips and point to a chair in the lobby. 
    • “Take a seat. He’s busy, but I’ll send up the memo. Don’t get your hopes up, kid.” 
  • You huffed in annoyance, plopping down in the seat and fiddling with your phone. 
  • About a half hour later a grumpy looking, definitely dyed-red head stepped before you. Her arms were crossed as she gazed threateningly down on you. 
    • “Are you the one hacking into Stark’s system?” 
  • You masked your embarrassment at being caught with a cocky smirk and  a shrug. 
  • She sighed, grabbing your arm and pulling you towards the elevators. 
    • “Tony’s going crazy trying to find you. You managed to hide your tracks pretty well. Well, at least your precise location. I figured it was just an impatient person trying to meet with him, since you were hacking specifically into his calendar for today.” 
  • She lead you up towards the top of the tower, officially within the “Avengers” part of the tower, and towards what you later realized was Tony and Bruce’s lab. 
  • You are kind of in shock when you see your father standing before you, that you don’t hear anything he is saying. You don’t seem to register that this man is scolding you and sassing you and asking you questions until Bruce steps forward, placing a hand on Tony’s shoulder to get him to stop talking. 
  • Bruce takes your father’s place before you, brows furrowed in concern. 
    • “You alright, kid? Sorry about Tony. He’s not gonna do anything to you, I promise. Are you alright?” he’s asking you, clearly noticing you’re experiencing some shock. 
  • You fiddle nervously with your rings, phone, whatever your hands can get on. Finally you look Tony in the eyes, noting the concern and confusion within them. 
    • “I thought about what I’d say to you, if I ever met you, for years. Should I go cheesy? Should I make a joke? Should I try to make it a movie-worthy moment? Honestly, none if it seems right… Mr. Stark you’re my father.” 
  • You were positive that you caused him to have a heart attack, but JARVIS later assured you it was a short anxiety attack. Still not good, still not comforting. 
  • After kicking everyone out of the lab and locking just the two of you inside, Tony proceeded to drill you with questions. He pulled up every record on you possible, plucked a strand of your hair for a DNA test, and used every other means possible to make sure you weren’t lying to him. 
    • He later explained it wasn’t because he didn’t want you as a daughter, but that he was kind of paranoid after everything that had happened to him. He just wanted to make sure no enemy of his had somehow hired you to come here and rattle him. 
    • You still called him a dick for not trusting you. 
  • When he was well satisfied that you were definitely his daughter and that you had come here of your own accord, Tony stood there staring at you silently for a few moments. You assumed he was just finally processing the information. 
  • He moved so quickly to pull you into a bone crushing hug that your first reaction was to try and push him away. But soon you were hugging him back, smiling softly as you tried to make sense of what he was saying into your hair. 
    • Something along the lines of, “You’re my kid. You’re my kid. Mine. I helped make you. I’m a dad. Shit, I’m a dad. I will be better than him. Shit, I’ve already missed so many years of your life. Shit, I’m a terrible dad. I’m a dad. You’re my kid.” 
  • A few hours later, hours filled with more hugs and a lot of explaining on your part (Why you were here? What happened to your mom? Why didn’t you come sooner?), Tony called everyone to the living room to introduce you. 
  • The rest of the afternoon and most of the evening was spent getting to know everyone else. You fell in love with your new makeshift family almost instantly. Tony stood off to the sidelines, watching you interact with everyone, his smile growing bigger each time you teased one of them with that signature Stark sass. 
    • “I’m happy for you, Stark. She seems like a great kid. I know you’ll be a great dad. And you have all of us here to help you. Between all of us she’ll be safe and happy,” Steve assured him quietly after noticing the pride and worry mixing in Tony’s eyes. 
  • That night neither you nor Tony wanted to go to bed. The two of you stayed up until the wee hours of the morning, sitting on the couch long after everyone else had fallen asleep, talking and catching up, trying to get to know everything about each other. 
    • You did fall asleep before your father, so he carried you to his own room which thankfully Nat and Clint had prepared for you - one that was just down the hall from his own room. He didn’t even make it to his bed after that though, instead falling asleep on the couch in your bedroom.
