Okay but for the final season I want it to be parallel to the first season like:
  • Like Pidge is messing with her tech or something and Hunk instead of him poking at her equipment he actually asks for permission
  • Lance and Hunk do some sneaking just like the one from the first episode at the garrison
  • They think Keith is dead from an explosion or something. At some point Lance starts laughing
    • “It’s Keith I see him!!”
    • “wait are you sure buddy?!?!”
    • “Yea i’d recognize that mullet anywhere”
  • Allura does some badass magic shit and she gets drained and falls into lance’s arms. Allura forgets where she is for a second and Lance says the same thing he did when they first met but now is crying and has a wobbly smile because holy shit it’s his found sister and he almost lost her.
  • Shiro and Keith have their brotherly talk and Shiro tells Keith not to worry because everything will be alright
    • something does happen and its actually shiro who’s freaking out and keith calmly tells him “Someone I look up to always tells me: Patience yields focus”
  • When they get back to Earth, Lance and Coran have a similar talk from the first season but instead of talking about what they miss about their homes, they talk about what they miss about space
    • they also talk about things to do now that they’re on Earth like going to the beach, seeing the rain, etc.
  • “They call me the Tailor because of how I thread the needle”
  • They’re all training and making the laser gun noises
  • BONDING MOMENT 2.0
  • Lance getting to see his family again and when he hugs his mom he just cries and whispers “I just really missed your hugs”
  • Garrison people are chasing them and they have the same scene with the hover bike
  • Keith looking at all the evidence he has in the shack and tells shiro how he could find him all because of it
  • Hunk and Shay stare at the sunset after the war ends
  • “Saviors of the universe….I like that” with the camera zooming out as they stare at the sunset on the beach.

(if any of you have anything else please add on!!)

Ravenclaw: So I just about cried in the middle of my Japanese culture class today.
Hufflepuff: Oh my goodness! What happened? Did you not do well on the midterm you got back?
Ravenclaw: Well I learned that in Japan your correct answers are circled. However I didn’t know this right off the bat. So when she handed back our exams and I saw that almost my entire page was covered in red circles I thought I had gotten everything wrong except two questions. Needless to say I was ready to hurl myself off the face of the earth until someone else who was slightly less distressed than I was asked about it.
Hufflepuff: *trying not to laugh* I’m sorry but this will be told to my coworkers tomorrow at morning coffee.

One. Famine is a teenage girl, sipping cappucino foam through the holes of her gas mask. Her eyes are hidden behind tainted black; when you pass her, you see the bright reflection of something red behind the glass. You saw it, but it did not happen. Two. Hundreds of people in the streets are bawling but one of them stays silent. He wears the oil-greased overall of the workshop around the corner. It reads Conquest. His teeth are razor sharp and glisten in the dying sun above. It reminds you of a butter knife. You blink and he’s gone. Three. Four men in posh busniess suits drop dead to the earth. A middle aged lady looks at you with a knife in her hand and a gun at her hip. Someone far away calls out for her. Her name is something British, but you’re sure they called her War. She throws her head back and starts to laugh. It chills you to the bones. Four. An old man smiles at you from a park bench while he throws rotten corn at the pigeons. You realize the pigeons are actually vultures. When you look at the old man again, Death looks back at you. It doesn’t matter. The world around you is already dead.

Signs you might be a witch

Have you ever thought you could be a witch but you weren’t sure? For some it’s hard to know when or if they should get started in magick and witchcraft, so here are a few signs that it might be time and that you might be a witch!

* please note anyone can be a witch! These are just some common things some witches experienced in their life before discovering they were a witch, but if you haven’t experienced any of these you could still definitely be one!

• anytime in your life, particularly your childhood you were always drawn to magick shops or crystal shops

• as a child you were always making potions, you would always go out and try to mix water with plants and all sorts of things

• you always looked for another way to heal people, whether it was a physical sickness or mental illness you always believed there was another way to help

• You never stopped believing in magick even when all your friends did

• you always felt a connection to the earth and the elements of it

• you are able to predict things or make things happen with your mind

• you have always been a spiritual person and liked or liked the concept of horoscopes, meditation, tarot cards etc.

Thanks happy enchanting 🖤🌙✨

THEY JUST LET HER GET AWAY??? JUST LIKE THAT??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME???????? 

Navy has the ship. She’s back in space. She’s going to collect the Rubies, something the Crystal Gems should have done A LONG TIME AGO, and they’re going to return to homeworld to tell the diamonds about the crystal gems.

And Lapis let Navy get away. Literally just because “she was right”.

What’s worse is that Eyeball KNOWS Steven has Rose’s gem. That’s not a detail she’s going to leave out when they meet the Diamonds again.

THE CRYSTAL GEMS HAVE LITERALLY SCREWED THEMSELVES AND THE EARTH BY BEING SO SLOPPY AND NOT COLLECTING THE RUBIES. LITERALLY WHY DID THEY NOT COLLECT THEM SOONER??? WHY DIDN’T LAPIS STOP NAVY??? WHY DIDN’T GARNET WARN STEVEN THAT THIS MIGHT HAPPEN??? Y’ALL ARE FUCKED NOW.

Now comes the hard part. You have to kill me. I’m calling your bluff.

anonymous asked:

is having a ginormous fat peen a deal breaker for you? yano cuz u short

Anonymous looked up at the sky, not trusting the colour smeared upon the horizon. Horizons could be misleading, they knew. Horizons could convince you it was still daylight, even when the whole of the sky arced above you in a sprawl of midnight. Looking forward was not always enough. Sometimes, you had to look up. 

Directly above Anonymous, the moon cut its teeth into the clouds, drawing blood and bruising the darkness with its waxen light, waning at the edges. It was time. 

They did not have long. The witch had told them, as she reluctantly handed them the bag of herbs, that the spell would only be useful for the minute or so that the moon was at its highest. The minute was upon them. 

Fifty five seconds left. 

Cursing themself for having lost track of time, Anonymous reached into their trouser pocket and pulled out the little drawstring bag. With hands shaking in anticipation, they emptied the contents into the small well they’d dug into the earth all those hours ago, and covered it back over with dirt. Fingers crossed behind their back, they stepped away and waited.

It did not happen immediately. Magic takes time, the witch had said. Magic does not come to you when you ask for it; it comes to you when it’s good and ready. You can cast all the spells you like, scatter all the herbs and make all the offerings, but magic cannot be summoned - only tempted. 

The seconds ticked by, and Anonymous waited.

This had been a long time coming, they reflected. They had waited too long for the taste of power on their lips. They had been too long distant from how it felt to be in control. They had learnt too early their place in the world, and they had too soon come to rue it. The chasm between want and have had grown inexorably bigger since the day they were born, and now they were here. 

The mound of earth did not move. Anonymous thought about the time they had first felt insignificant - the first time they had realised that they stood small in the face of all things - and counted the seconds. 

With ten seconds left before the spell died, the magic came. 

Magic has no face, has no body. It takes no form and it holds no weight. The witch had told Anonymous this herself. Magic simply is; it is because no other word will do, but it is not. It cannot be, and has never been, and yet it is. 

When Anonymous thought about it, it was all rather complicated.

Best, then, not to think at all. Best to give voice to thought and make it speech. 

Anonymous cleared their throat and began. 

“I suppose you’re wondering why I summoned you here - ” 

I was not summoned. 

They flushed, the soundless sound surprising them even though they had been expecting it. Do not fear the voiceless voice, the witch had warned. It speaks, and is silent. The words are only half your own. 

Breathing slowly, they tried again. 

“No, of course not. Sorry. I’m not - I haven’t used magic before.” 

And you still have not. I am not here to be used. Say what you would have, and I will do the same. This is not a service. This is a trade.

“Right. Yes. Sorry.” They inhaled, exhaled. This was the only chance they would have to resolve the conflict that had been the shape of all their life. This was the resolution of aporia; of feeling as though they deserved everything, yet having nothing. Of knowing that they should be free, but being everywhere in chains. Of wanting, and of not having. “I want to feel powerful.” 

In what sense? Power is not all-encompassing. The queen ant is powerful to the workers, but weak to the heel of the boot. What power would you hold? Do you seek to command nations, or to master the arts, or to take another as your own? 

Anonymous considered how best to formulate their response before replying. Precision was key here. The witch had made it clear that magic would grant you what you asked, whether or not it was exactly what you wanted. 

“I’m tired of being silent,” they said eventually. “I’m tired of being unable to say whatever I want. I’m sick to the teeth of thinking all these thoughts - great thoughts, too; thoughts that could topple cities and part seas - and being forced to keep them to myself, all because other people think that their own feelings are more important. Well, what of my feelings? What of feeling inadequate? What of the weight of being told to keep silent? Do they know what that does to a person?”

As they spoke, they could feel their heartbeat rise, pumping and roaring in their ears, in their veins. “Sorry,” they added. “I’m getting carried away. But to answer your question - I want to have the power to speak my mind.”

In all things?

They contemplated it. “Yes. In all things.”

The silence was real for a few moments before it became illusion.

I can help you.

“And will you?” 

Yes. It will require exchange, however.

At these words, Anonymous could hardly contain their excitement. “Anything. I’ll give you anything.” They took their purse out from their other pocket, and held it out towards the mound. “I have money. I have a house, too, but that’s back in town. You mightn’t like it there. My neighbours - ”

I would have your face.

Anonymous faltered. “My what?”

Your face. That is my offer. I will give you unlimited and unprecedented power to speak your mind. All thoughts you have will be given voice, and you will never again be forced to turn away from speaking aloud what you have always been taught to keep silent. In return for this extraordinary power, I would take from you your face, and in so doing I would give myself form and body. You would never again be silent; I would never again be invisible. 

“But wouldn’t I suffer without a face? How would anyone know that it was me who was speaking?” Anonymous asked, wringing their hands around their purse. 

I have named my payment. Now I would name my price. The price of this power is thus: the knowledge that all thoughts you give voice to will be dampened by your lack of face. That everything you ever say to another will be tempered by your lack of identity. That no-one will again know whose thoughts you speak; only that you do speak, and in all things. 

There was nothing for it. They would have to decline. They could not accept these terms. What power came at such a price, after all? What king had ever ruled his country with no name or face? What lover had ever made another theirs with no identity? 

All the times they had been asked to hold their tongue; all the times they had been scolded for speaking their mind; all the times they had uttered the wrong words at the wrong time and had suffered for it: all this had been for nothing. 

Although, Anonymous admitted to themself, the thought did appeal on one front, and one front alone. It was undeniable that a certain freedom was gained by completely giving up one’s identity. After all, who could be held accountable for a deed when the deed was done by one with neither name nor face? Who would they scold when the words that were given were not the words that were wanted? Who would suffer when the things said were not things that people wanted to hear?

Only those who heard them, of course, and not the one who spoke them. 

And immediately, ashamedly, wonderfully, the decision was already made, had perhaps been made years ago. 

“It’s a deal.” 

You agree to the payment and price?

“I do. Take my face, and give me the power I seek.”

The deal is struck.

And then the moon, which had begun to falter at its peak, was suddenly once more at its highest. The minutes had been returned. 

Hand trembling, Anonymous reached up to touch their face, only to find that, of course, there was no face. Where their image had been - the folds of their mouth, the curve of their nose - was now smooth and featureless. There was nothing there at all.

“Are you happy?” came a voice from behind them. 

Anonymous whirled around, and came face to face with their own face, worn by another. “Who are you?” they asked, and a thrill chased up their spine at the realisation that there was no fear behind these words at all. Their voice did not falter. The question was biting, crystalline.

“I am Magic,” replied the impostor, “given form by our deal. Is it to your satisfaction?” It cocked its head inquisitively, Anonymous’ old eyes seeking validation in their new setting, and Anonymous felt powerful. They were looking at their old self - their weaker, voiceless self - and they were free.

Anonymous drew a deep breath in before responding. “is having a ginormous fat peen a deal breaker for you?” they asked.

Magic blinked. “I don’t understand.” 

“yano,” continued Anonymous, “cuz u short.”

“Why are you saying that?” asked Magic, eyes darting left to right in placid uncertainty. “I don’t understand. I gave you what you wanted. You could say anything you wanted, and no-one would ever hold you accountable. You could take a lover with intricately crafted sonnets, bend ears with your scintillating rhetoric, and yet you choose - ”

“is having a ginormous fat peen a deal breaker for you? yano cuz u short,” interjected Anonymous, feeling giddy and drunk with power.

Magic blinked again. “You have the choice of a thousand languages, billions of words - ”

“is having a ginormous fat peen - ”

“Sometimes,” Magic interrupted, “silence is the more powerful weapon after all. I could undo what I have done, but I think it best not to bother. Some people will never learn. I wish you luck with all things, and may you one day find your power useful, for it will not aid you in the pursuit you have chosen.”

With that, Magic was gone, and Anonymous’ face was lost to them forever. Now alone, Anonymous looked gleefully at the small mound of earth that had been their salvation. They thought of all the things they would say tomorrow, and they smiled.

At least, they would have smiled, had they been able.

Far away, Magic rolled its new eyes, and decided to write a sonnet. 

directions

you have sixty minutes to complete this test. not a minute more, not a minute less. follow the damn rules, for once.
answer every question to the best of your ability. if the question is too difficult or even unanswerable, raise your hand and someone will come.
(will someone really help? you can never know.)
if you need a drink of water, exit the room and enter the first door on your left. try not to drown, the water fountain leaks.

question 1

which of the following is not like the others?

a) i peer out of the window of my car, road rules be damned. we’re hitting seventy, maybe eighty, and it almost feels like the wind is trying to blow me out of the car and away, away, away. maybe i want it to.

b) the grass feels warm and supple beneath my bare legs, and i pluck out a dandelion. the earth sighs, but i do not hear. as i draw breath, the wind does my job for me, and the wisps have floated away. i never got to make a wish.

c) i’m at the very top of the rollercoaster, and i’m staring down at the fall before me. the wind tips us over, and i’m light as a feather and i’m falling, and i’m not falling anymore, i’m flying, and my wings skim the top of the lake and i fall again.

d) i’m looking at you again, and the wind seems to have found a home in your eyes. a light wind could blow me away, and maybe it does; maybe i’m as fragile as a blank sheet of paper in the wind and just as empty, maybe the sound of the wind against my fingertips is home.

e) the wind is my home, the wind is where i am safe, the wind is all i can hear and my world is disappearing with the wind and my heart is shattering and the pieces are floating away in the wind and there’s something thumping against my chest and it’s the wind; the wind is all i know.

question 2

order the following events in chronological order:

- there is nothing here to find.
- not all wars are cold.
- i can see empires beyond the horizon line.
- life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
- the only part of me not buried in ash is you.
- the guillotine falls again and again and again.
- there is smoke in the air and smoke inside me.
- i sign myself away with a stroke of a quill.
- our monuments have all crumbled.
- we notch our arrows and let fly our bullets.
- rise up, rise up, rise up.
- how did this happen?

question 3

i. when i bite the my lips i taste blood
ii. when i bite yours i taste ichor
iii. did you fall from the sky to meet me?
iv. or did i rise from the earth to find you?
v. yes, i can see it now, i can see it all
vi. maybe that’s why everything you touch turns to gold
vii. and everything i touch shatters

question 4

is there a right answer for anything? or is it just the stars whispering nonsense in your ears, trying to watch you explode like they themselves did so many billions of years ago? is it just the rain hitting the paper? or is it the ink from your standardized 0.7 pilot gel pen spilling out in quicksilver rivulets all around you?

(use mla citations, and use the space below - all 93 billion light-years of space provided must be utilized.)

you have completed the test. congratulations.

this was the easy part. step outside the door to your right, and face the world again. that’s the hard part.

- the final // s.g

Now, I know many has done this before but I’ll leave my au here anyways. 

Avatar au!

-Now, imagine that once the paladins achive a certain lever of trust with their Lions, the Lions gives some of their life force to their paladins, making their bond stronger and allowing them to have access to new abilities. Of course, these new abilities is them being able to control the element they represent.

Hunk is the first one to discover this while on a mission. He was surrounded, he was trying to protect the civilians but it was an impossible task. The soldiers aimed at them and Hunk closed his eyes while opening his arms, as a poor attempt to protect those behind him. When he notice nothing happened, he opened his eyes. Somehow, the earth rose and made a shield, protecting him and the others. When Hunk let his arms fell, the wall did too. It took him only a few seconds to realize what was happening and start using his new found powers in his favor. He had nothing to fear, because now he could hear Yellow’s purring in his head guiding him through the battle. 

Pidge and Shiro are next. 

Pidge happens to find her powers while she was visiting Olkarion again. The planet was attack by Lotor, and they lost almost everything. Team Voltron went to help, but there wasn’t much they could do. Their land was slowly dying. Not even their best technology could do something to prevent it. But Pidge didn’t let this stop her, she kept working day and night to find a solution until she thought… That maybe, the only thing the Olkari had to do to stop their planet’s disease, was to connect with it… Something similar to what Allura did in the Balmera. The Olkari did as told. It was actually a good result, the Olkari connect with the core of the planet and let it borrow their energy… But the planet was to weak, to damage, and even with the effort they were making, it couldn’t heal. Devastated, they thought about leaving to place they called home once… But Pidge put her hands on the ground, closed her eyes, and let her spirit connect to the planet. After a few minutes, the trees and plants started growing again and recovering their light. 

Shiro happens to discover his power after he was captured and brought to the arena again thanks to the Galra. He didn’t want to fight but he couldn’t just defend himself either. Black hear his cubs doubts thought the distance and let him access to his powers, giving him the chance to escape from that place. 

Keith and Lance discover their powers the same day. It happens in the middle of a fight, days after fiding Shiro who recently escaped from the arena. Shiro was fine thanks to Black, a little weak but fine. Still, this didn’t stop their leader from wanting to fight besides them. Unfortunately, Shiro was still affected from visiting the Arena and lost control thanks to a flashback triggered thanks to some Galra. He fell unconscious, and he was about to be taken again. This time, not to arena, but to be brought to Haggar to be torture. Keith couldn’t bare the thought of losing Shiro again, not after just recovering him. Also he couldn’t let Shiro go thought all that again. 

Red felt his wrath, his anger and his need to protect and let’s Keith use his powers. He was untouchable in the battle field. He burnt everything in his way, and the paladins just walked right behind him. They found Shiro, and Pidge and Hunk were the ones to grab him. They went back to their lions, leaving the inferno behind to help the Black Paladin.

Lance and Keith didn’t move from places. Keith was burning, literally. He was on fire and the fire around him was only growing. He begged Lance to leave him, but the Blue paladin refused. Blue, after feeling his paladin desire to help his teammate, allowed Lance to unlock his powers. The boy felt Blue guiding him, telling to walk through the fire to help his friend. And just like that, Lance knew what he had to do. Keith felt terrified when he saw Lance approaching. He tried to step away from him, to warn him… But the Paladin didn’t listen. 

He closed his eyes, not wanting to see Lance getting hurt because of him. But then he felt his arms surrounding him, and suddenly, a cold breeze embrace him too and the fire around them disappeared.

So, after this, Keith refuses to use his powers again. He only does it after a long talk with Shiro and after being reassured Lance was going to be using his own powers to help in case he loses control. 

Keith loses his control, a lot. In and out of training. Lance becomes his shadow. He’s beside him all the time to keep him from setting the castle on fire while he tries learn to control his powers. It’s difficult, really, because even when Lance is the one who keeps Keith in control, he’s one of the main reasons he looses it. 

Anyways. Everyone keeps practicing with their powers and tries to come up with plans and see how can they bring their abilties in battle. The only one who doesn’t do much is Lance… 

He goes to practice because he knows he gotta be there to help Keith, but he doesn’t fight. This is because he can’t control water, he can only cool things. Like Keith’s mullet. Or at least that what he says… 

He can feel the water everywhere. In the air, in the earth, in the plants, in the castle, in his teammates. He can feel their blood running thought their veins. It’s scary. 

He manipulates water when he’s alone. He makes everyone is asleep before going to the training room. He doesn’t do much, he just… Moves the water here and there, he sometimes freezes it, he sometimes makes weapons with it. But that’s it.

Lance never uses his powers in battle. He only helps Keith to be in control of his. Until one day… 

Lotor trapped them all. They were tired, even with their best effort and their powers they weren’t match for the prince and his generals. Lotor lifts his sword, he’s about to kill Keith right there in front of everyone. 

Then Lance rises his hands, Narti is suddenly screaming in the ground. All eyes are on him and nobody truly understands what’s happening. The generals and Lotor look at Narti with worry in their eyes. Yes, maybe Lotor was a son of a bitch, but he cared for them. And they knew this, Lance knew this. 

“What are you doing to her?”

“Let my friends go, and I won’t kill her.”

“Do you truly think you are in control here? I have four of your friends, I can kill them one by one until you free Narti.“

“Come on, Lotor. Don’t make this difficult.” But there’s was no bargain with the prince. Lance sighs and close his fist, Narti’s screams becoming louder. "Lotor, I don’t think I’m in control… I know so.”

Lotor eyes widden, and before anyone can understand what’s happening, Lance moves his hands foward and just like that, Lotor’s generals were in the floor screaming with pain. 

“Zethrid, Acxa! Ezor…!  You–! What have you done to them?!” 

“Remove the handcuffs from my friends, and I won’t kill yours.”

“You truly think–!”

“I’m not playing games here, Lotor! Free them or watch them die!” 

Eventually Lotor free the paladins. They walk towards Lance with hesitation, confused by how their friend is doing that. Lance lowers his hands, and just like that the generals stop screaming. Ezor starts sobbing and crawls to were Narti is. Zethrid is shaking, and Lotor runs to where she and Acxa are, trying to reassure them. 

It leaves a terrible taste in Lance’s mouth. 

They go back to the Castle. Nobody asks any questions. Lance promises to only use his powers to help Keith and nothing else.

Protect Your Own

A little Steve Harrington x reader Drabble based on this request!: “Can you write a fanfiction where the reader is a part of the party and is Billy’s biological sister. One day Billy shows up in a really bad mood to come get Max and the reader and gets pretty violent, so Steve protects them.”
A/N: So I wasn’t sure if you wanted this to be a romantic Steve x reader and still have her be in middle school? So I changed the reader’s age and have her not in the party, instead she’s a junior in high school- hope that’s okay!
warnings: swearing, angst, physical fights, billy’s an ASSHOLE
tags under cut

The distant rumble of gravel and revving of an engine could only mean one thing, and when you saw his car pull into the driveway it was confirmed: Billy was here. He must have been looking for you and Max, for some reason, and now it only meant trouble. 

He’d already told the two of you to stay away from ‘those boys’, aka a group of middle schoolers Max liked to hangout with and your Steve. So, if he caught you with all of them late at night……well, you knew what was going to happen. 

Being as you were his biological sister and not Max, you’d get the blunt of his treachery. But that was okay, you’d always felt a certain need to protect her anyways. 

So, when you heard a loud bang on the door, you instinctively shoved her out of harms way, “Max, get behind me.” 

“(Y/N), what are you doing?” She protested, struggling to see who was at the door. But you just shushed her and looked towards Steve, “That’s Billy, Steve you have to leave. All of you have to leave.” 

At the mention of his name, you felt Max still and saw her face drain of color, “Listen to her.” She whispered. 

“What are you talking about?” Steve took a step towards you, but it was too late. You didn’t have time to respond before Billy had burst through the door, wild eyed with a cigarette between his lips, and shouted, “Well, well, well! Look who I’ve mother-fucking found!”  

“You four, go into the other room now!” You shouted at the younger kids- Dusty, Mike, Max, and  Lucas- who quickly shuffled out of sight. 

“(Y/N), (Y/N), (Y/N),” You turned to the sound of Billy’s voice, and found Steve crumpled below him, nearly passed out and bleeding, “You disobeyed me. I told you specifically not to hang out with this guy anymore, and where do I find you late at night? Fucking him like some whore.” He kicked Steve, who just groaned and clutched his stomach.

“Billy what have you done?!” 

And you know what happens when you disobey me…..” He hovered a full foot taller than you, leaving barely an inch of room between your faces before shouting, “I BREAK THINGS”

You actually whimpered, covering your face with your hands and preparing yourself for whatever was about to come next…… but nothing did. 

Peering through your fingers, you saw Steve. 

He was mounted on top of Billy, hitting him over and over while shouting, “You! Leave! Her! Alone!” 

You just stood there in shock, never in your 17 years on this earth had you seen someone stand up to your brother. Not like this, anyways. 

Steve had always been level headed, calm and collected- even when the two of you fought a god damn demidog- but this was something else entirely. He punched your brother square in the face until his knuckles were bleeding, and Billy was passed out below him. 

Then, minutes later, Steve heaved a breath, and went to whisper something in Billy’s ear, “You touch her, or Max, ever again….. and I swear to god you’re dead. You’re fucking dead.” 

You just stood there frozen, eyes darting between Steve and your brother in shock, “H-he’s going to kill me- why didn’t you just let him hit me, Steve?!” 

“Because, (Y/N), I wouldn’t have been able to live with myself if I’d let that happen.” He took a step towards you, almost hesitantly, “He’s never going to touch you again. Either of you.” He nodded towards Max, who was clutching onto Lucas with tears shining in her eyes. 

“I love you, Steve Harrington.” You whispered, wrapping your arms around his shoulders as he whispered back, “I’ve loved you since the moment I met you, (Y/N).”

You know you’ve been reading too much fanfiction when you have to stop and ask yourself “Wait, did that actually happen? Or did I just read it in a fic?” Then you actually have to sit there and south through all of the fic plots in your head to find the actual cannon plot line.

Honestly, one of my favorite things about Avatar: The Last Airbender that I don’t see get addressed a lot by the fandom is Iroh’s character arc.  It isn’t as obvious as Zuko’s, mostly because Iroh’s done a lot more living than his nephew and has had a lot more time to grow into the person he is now, but that’s just it.  He wasn’t always the wise old man we see him as by the time of the events of the show.  He was once basically a war criminal who laughed at the prospect of seeing a city burn. He might not have been a cruel man by nature (at least according to Word of God), but he was still fully willing to lay waste to Ba Sing Se.    It was only when Iroh lost his own son that he started to realize that what he was doing was horrible.  That all of the people he’d let die or maybe even actively killed in the Earth Kingdom were people.  That there were a lot of fathers going through the same thing he was, and he’d caused it to happen. And even with his retirement from the military and good works done with the White Lotus, he could never truly make up for it, and he knows that.  

Then along comes Zuko, who’s making all the same mistakes Iroh did all those years ago and who’s so much like the son he let die that it hurts.  I get the feeling that in a strange way, Iroh sees a lot more capacity for good in Zuko than in himself, if only because Zuko is still young and has time to un-learn all the bitterness and violence instilled in him by Ozai.  All of the wisdom he shares with Zuko about having to let go of his pride, about choosing his own path in life rather than adhering to one already chosen for him, and about not letting his judgement be impaired by the passion of the moment, are things he wishes he could told not just the all-too-eager boy soldier Lu Ten, but himself when he’d started out. And if someone as broken and despairing of ever finding his way as Zuko can find peace and some measure of redemption, maybe Iroh can, too.

Suddenly his words to Korra—“Sometimes the best way to solve your own problems is to help someone else.”—make a new kind of sense.
