Treasure Planet!AU in which Keith and Shiro are brothers, orphaned at a young age and basically being into shady business until they get their hands on a map that leads to Treasure Planet, a planet filled to the brim with real good quintessence! (and gold lol) All aboard the RLS VOLTRON please!
Keith is basically Jim Hawkins, not knowing where he truly belongs Shiro just wants to see his lil bro happy Lance is the first-mate in training, clearly interested in the cabin boy with many talents ;-))) Pidge is the witty engineer Hunk is the cook AND mechanic!! amazing! Allura is the bamfest captain there is
…and Coran is the astronomer who pays for all this shit!
Of course, there are also some nasty Galra guys hidden as crew members on board, wanting the quintessence all for themselves ┗(｀皿´)┛!
Hey! So I see a lot of stuff where Mica is this unbelievably brutal assassin and I was wondering if you shared this idea? And if so (or if not) what your thoughts were on her?
definitely! RL Mica is a badass so Mica the mercenary is my favourite
version of her in the FAHC world.
who had an excellent upbringing, had the kind of family line that’s
too wealthy to ever go down for all their white collar crime, who
could so easily have become a spoiled princess, could have accepted a
silver spoon life full of luxury, but was never prepared to settle.
Never willing to get by on anyone else’s accolades, to give up her
own ambition, to follow the path anyone else sets out for her.
who was always told she was too soft to make it big in crime, too
sweet to survive the cut-throat underbelly, too gorgeous for the
dirty work. Mica who relished in proving everyone wrong, who worked
hard to become something worse than they’d ever imagined, who is
unrelenting until she is not only a known mercenary but one of the
bigger names in the business. One of the baddest reputations, the
kind not even kingpins want to cross, the kind even the Vagabond
treats with reverence. Until no one would dream of talking down to
her, of accusing her of riding coat tails or getting lucky, of being anything but god
who gives up none of herself to get there – doesn’t fold to
expectation, doesn’t trade out her designer clothes, give up
manicured nails or perfect hair. Who doesn’t lose her sense of
humour, her breezy attitude, finds no reason to brood about a life
full of death when she’s the one who chose it. When her services are
in such high demand she can charge whatever the hell she likes. When
she’s so undeniably good at what she does not a single target has
managed to evade her, adapting her methods, approach and appearance
with a skill even the infamous Dollface admires.
who has a sharp mind and a sharper tongue, known for her infallible
plans and her utter refusal to take anyone’s shit. Mica who did her
time being underestimated, who let them all laugh at her designer
heels, her pretty curls, her tailored clothes until her actions
proved her more than worthy of respect. Who will no longer settle for
anything less than respect. Who has turned on any foolish enough to
forget, any who think enough zeros on a pay cheque entitle them to
say whatever they like, behave however they like, who never seem to
see the inevitable coming until there’s blood on the floor and a
stiletto at their throat.
who worked alone, constantly on the move and strictly a freelancer,
at least until the FAHC. Until she catches sight of their frontman in
some bar, eyebrows raising when he flat out abandons some kind of
meeting to come talk to her, flashing a bright grin that almost belies the cold dark look he uses to instantly silence the complaints of his angry companions. Mica
laughs when he offers to buy her a drink, knowing he didn’t even buy
his own, knowing exactly how this interaction goes, fingers already
dancing across the knife hidden beneath her clothes, resigned if
faintly disappointed. Imagine her surprise when she realises Gavin is
just fond of defying expectation as she is, that he is friendly, is
charming, yes, but all that enthralment is focused on her
professional abilities. On winning her attentions because of her
skill, her reputation, the varied stories of her exploits invoking
boyish glee rather than the standard lecherous approach.
the same with the rest of his crew, once he convinces her to come
meet with them about some job, all those ruthless criminals with
more respectful civility than most law abiding citizens, who
understand full well the kind of skills it takes to pull off the work
she does and wouldn’t dream of trying to belittle her. The Fake’s are
a crew unlike any she has worked with, a crew who seem to work
flawlessly together without the usual exercises of a shifting pecking
order, free of power plays and loaded commentary. A crew who knows how
to play with the Vagabond without losing any fingers, who’ve danced
with Dollface and kept their tongues. A crew who actually understands
the meaning in fun, who think is neither requires nor
prohibits abject cruelty, who aren’t afraid of a little blood. Who
aren’t afraid of a lot of it. Who call a massacre a good time and
never fail to gush over her more creative hits. Add Ramsey, a leader
who never thinks his requests are beyond her abilities, who offers
aid and additional compensation for the seemingly impractical but
never assumes she isn’t capable, and there’s really no reason for
Mica to turn down the jobs she is offered.
she works with the FAHC, takes regular jobs for them, a happy alliance, a
contractor on the payroll with no end in sight, but no matter how
much it might seem like she has she doesn’t actually join the crew.
Not for lack of interest, not like they haven’t asked a million
times, but at the end of the day she has worked too hard for herself
to ever fold into someone else’s hierarchy. Mica who will never bow
to anything, to anyone, who crafted her own crown, a legacy built
from the ground up, and refuses to be toppled from her throne.
@dylanobrien: who else is going to see #TheLongestRide this weekend?! i can’t wait, i have such a crush on the girl in it. she’s so beautiful :) hehehe @wesball: dude you totally have a shot with her! @dylanobrien: thanks bro!
Sorry to bother but it happens that I have a friend who sees Supernatural an he says that Destiel will never be canon because Dean is too male chauvinist (this friend is not homophobic, he'd be okay with a gay couple) and that the whole show is male chauvinist too but I don't know how to argue it with him. I mean, I think that about the show too, but not so much about Dean Winchester. Maybe you could explain what you think about it?
Whoa, no bother at all - what are tumblr friends for if not proving RL friends wrong?
So, first - this has nothing to do with anything, but you woke my inner language monster, and now you’re going to suffer a paragraph of consequences, because chauvinism - now, that’s a word I haven’t heard in a long time. It’s a ‘70s thing, ins’t it? Male chauvinist pigs and all that. I know we used it back when I was desperate to be a Communist, and we comrade’d one another in a laudable effort to pretend the Berlin wall was still up and everyone was into LSD and free love and we actually had something to be angry about.
(Turns out the word comes from Chauvin, some officer guy in Napoleon’s army who was extremely patriotic, and that’s mostly what it means - how it came to mean “an attitude that the members of your own sex are always better than those of the opposite sex”, that’s something I wish I had the time to investigate.)
My second point is, why couldn’t someone be gay and chauvinist? Gay people are people, which means some of them are complete and utter dicks. I personally know at least two gay men who have horrific political opinions and are complete mcp despite being out and proud and sharing an apartment with a (male) partner and an assortment of cats, pianos and art books. I mean, in an ideal world, people who belong to a minority group should, like, avoid sympathizing for a majority group who’d have then hanged and quartered if at all possible, but sadly, this isn’t always the case. I still remember a thing that happened in Italy a few years back - a black guy who tried like nothing else to become a member of a Nazi ‘party’ and went all the way to court because they wouldn’t let him join. And he wasn’t doing it out of some cunning political design or anything - he actually held Nazi beliefs, but he’d apparently forgotten that, in the eyes of European Nazis, he was the ‘undesirable’ one. Whoops.
That said, I don’t see how the term applies to Dean at all. I mean, again - the definition of ‘male chauvinist’ goes as follow: “a male who patronizes, disparages, or otherwise denigrates females in the belief that they are inferior to males and thus deserving of less than equal treatment or benefit”. Now, I think I said before that when I started to watch the show, I didn’t particularly like Dean. He had this fuckboy aura, you know? The love ‘em and leave ‘em personality I just can’t stand in real men - and, well, I like to think even fictional men have to work very hard to be likeable when they’re like that. But even back then, I never thought of him as a male chauvinist. Sure, he was a bit of an idiot, but nothing more than that. Like, when he’s short and dismissive with women, that generally comes from a place of genuine concern - for instance, he didn’t want Haley to come with them to hunt the wendigo back in S02E01 because he knew she would get hurt, or worse, not because she was a girl.
His default functioning mode is to lie to everybody, and his tactics involve, first and foremost, to maintain a safe distance from others. This normally translates into flirting and smiling, which come off as a bit assholish when he’s in a position of power, and as downright irritating when he’s not (for instance, think about how he is around police officers - the textbook definition of ‘little shit’). So there’s that, and okay. But when he’s around women who can take care of themselves, like Ellen or Jody, he never treats them any differently than he would men. I think he even discussed the thing out loud, maybe with Jo? How his main categorization there was hunter vs civilian, and not men vs women? I’m slightly feverish and out of focus right now, so I’d rather not check, but I’m sure there was something like that. And also: one of the things I like about him, and, incidentally, another argument to use against your friend, is that Dean never thinks less of a woman just because he’s slept with her. This, in my book, is the mark of a true misogynist - how they tend to divide the world between ‘bitches who won’t sleep with me’ and ‘sluts who’ll sleep with anybody, including me’. I’m currently locked in a vicious fight with a colleague of mine who’s exactly like that, and it’s truly amazing how he can both be pathetically grateful to this woman he’s seeing because, yay!, sex and companionship, while disparaging her every chance he’s got because, you know, that’s not how proper women should behave. And Dean - Dean’s not like that. The most glaring example is perhaps Lisa - how they had a weekend of dirty, dirty, dirty sex and yet when they see each other again, Dean’s not dismissive of her in any way. Just like he never says a word against Cassie, or those two hunters we know he’s slept with, because that’s just not who he is.
(This goes both ways, of course: when faced with a female opponent, Dean never underestimates her and never holds back.)
The thing is, I think your friend may be referring to performing!Dean, because, even though Dean’s not like that, the world he lives in - that’s a different story. Or, well, that’s what we believed until S11 went and shit rainbows all over our screens, because, man - turns out hunters just don’t care? That there are women who hunt alone and gay hunters who’re well-known and respected in the community and whoa, Dean got it so wrong all these years. And this, as many discussions here on tumblr have been pointing out for months, is the real game changer: not Dean’s feelings, per se, but what happens around him. Because if Dean had grown up in this world, and not his father’s - well, we don’t even have to imagine what kind of person he’d be today. We know.
I was going through yr rec list and found the post regarding the classic fics for Drarry. I was wondering, do you ever think there might be a list for the 3rd Drarry bookshelf?
I don’t know, anon! There certainly could be, and it would be interesting to see what made the list!
The main reason there hasn’t been, afaik, is that the people who’ve done it in the past either have left fandom or have plates already overflowing with other fandom and rl commitments and don’t have time. Like, I know @vaysh11 was one of the co-organizers of The Second H/D Bookshelf, and vaysh mods at least three or four different fests and organizes the H/D calendar and writes fic and podfics and basically is a fandom rockstar, but then adding something else to that would be A Lot. And lots of other people who are active in fandom also have other commitments going on.
So, if you think it would be a cool thing to do (and I would agree!) then do it!! You might try getting in touch with people who have done it in the past for tips, and/or putting out feelers to people in the H/D community to find out what would make for a good survey (especially in this less lj-centric/more multi-platform moment), but if you’re interested, go for it!
excerpt: they have the coming out conversation over skype, four months in. phil says, i just wanna show you off, and dan says, you can. they talk about work experience, after, and kind of forget.
note: my coming out headcanon - or, to be more accurate, the lack thereof -
put into 1.5k words. there are a hundred versions of their potential coming out and none of them fits inside my head. there is a reason for this.
also: please excuse the lowercase. i have a capitalized version sitting around waiting for someone to complain, but i have been informed this fits the style better. suspend belief. also read on ao3.
1. they have the
coming out conversation over skype, four months in. phil says, i just
wanna show you off, and dan says, you can. they talk about
work experience, after, and kind of forget.
2. dan doesn’t tell his mum but does tell phil’s, standing barefoot in her
kitchen making two cups of tea. she asks while rummaging through drawers and he
tells her with shaking fingers against porcelain mugs, finds that it’s not that
big of a deal. he doesn’t tell his own mum, but he thinks she already knows.
3. in the
supermarket phil buys too much food for only one person and an elderly woman in
aisle three asks. he says, my boyfriend’s visiting, and pretends
it’s not for the first time.
(Totally inspired by a sentence in this lovely thing by @michaeljnes) Consider a fahc Gavin who is still super into cameras, still seems to see and process life in frames and shots and perfect timing like RL Gavin appears to. A Gavin who gets so fed up with the shitty images run by the Los Santos media after every incident, shaky, unfocused monstrosities taken by the terrified public, that he starts submitting his own.
Gorgeous award-worthy photos - Michael and his mini gun backlit by an explosion, Ryan riding the roof of an armoured truck, Jack surrounded by free falling cash and laughing as she pulls her chute.
It doesn’t take long before the public works out where the anonymous source must be coming from (how did they get so close without getting- oh shit), and the crew gives him a hard time but really anything to stop the endless whining about overexposure and motion blur is a godsend..
Aah, it’s that time again..it’s midnight and the taxi is here to pick me up. I hate to leave them like this. But, this is how it goes. This family threw me a lot of curve balls and I just had to roll with it.
I don’t know how long it will take me to get back to Spencer Farm, there are more families to visit. We shall see. I hope this family can mend their relationships while I’m gone.
…Next up, we’ll be riding over to Sage Estates. It’s time to visit my self-sim’s parents..I need some relaxation from the drama!
But in the meantime, my queue is empty…RL comes first…Please STAY TUNED for more posts this weekend! A big thank you to all of you who read Around the Hood!
In the last
few months, many, many wonderful new writers have joined the Jon x Sansa ship. I wanted to do a recommendation list to
acknowledge all the great new talent and also to help readers who are finding
the numbers of new fic overwhelming. With
the help of some friends, I put together this list a couple of months ago (RL
got in the way, and I’m only publishing it now). The only criteria is that the
author started posting Jon x Sansa this year (as far as we could tell), and
someone liked their fic and recommended it to me. I see it as very much a starting point, and
if people want to reblog and add their own recs, that is great.
I think so many authors think that they should make EoY more of a tragic figure since to them she wasn't that interesting in RL fail to see how many tragedies this woman witnessed and went through yet despite all of that she managed to move past them and become a very much loved and respected queen who managed to have a happy life whcih in my opinion is the greatest achivement considering the time period she lived in why noone's interested in exploring that is beyond me
i think some of this has to do with the resurgence of richard iii as a tragic, romantic king, so they make elizabeth be in love with him and everything in her life be dreadful when he dies, i think it’s that a lot of hf writers don’t have a lot of interest beyond elizabeth besides how she can prop up richard which is annoyingly sexist on its own
even though we don’t know that much personal info on elizabeth, i agree, she had a good life despite everything that happened to her, and i don’t understand how making her suffer all her life makes her seem more interesting either, but it’s just the cultural obsession with women in pain being is super meaningful i suppose
January is always a weird month on the east coast. One day
the sun is out and it’s warm enough to get away with just a jacket or sweater
and then the next it’s freezing cold. Today was one of the freezing cold days.
Riley wakes up to see a good foot of snow on the ground. She flicks on the TV
and watches as the cancellation lists scrolls by. When it gets down to the J’s
she sees John Adams High.
Just as she’s turning off the television her mom, Topanga,
knocks on her bedroom door. “Looks like a snow day, honey. You get to sleep in.”
“I’m already wide awake…I guess I could go out and take some
pictures of all the snow covered things?” Riley smiles up at her mother, trying
to win her over.
“Who am I to come between you and your art?” Topanga jokes, “But
first, I need you to do me a favor. Get dressed and I’ll be waiting downstairs.”
Riley freshens up and skims through her wardrobe. She pulls
on some wool leggings and an over-sized sweater. She laces up her boots, applies a quick
coat of mascara and heads downstairs.
She’s immediately hit with the aroma of sugary baked goods.
On their kitchen counter there’s a big spread of cookies, cakes, brownies and bread.
“Did I miss something? Is the queen visiting?” Riley asks,
nibbling on a muffin.
“It’s for my office party tonight.” Her mom informs her. “I’m
the designated baker.”
Wow people who jump on u obviously don't know how shitty it is when ur favourite group says they do a world tour but they don't come to Europe (for basically no reason..) and ur disappointed again and sad bc u probably won't ever see them in rl. And then you see all those American kpop fans buying tickets and going to their concerts and having a good time but u need to stay at home and watch them. Like that's one of the shittiest feelings in the world.
i’m really happy for people who can go and see them but I can’t express how much peope who still whine irk me. I know I either have to spend thousands to see them or never see them at all and you complain because they’re visiting a state next to yours and not yours?? at least they actually visit your land
matt clavane lives in my village and goes to the same college as me ahaha wtf i cannot believe this
I AM SCREAMING, are you serious?!?!?!?!?!? That’s fucking amazing, omg, I’m so jealous!!!!!! I want to come visit you and see him and burst into tears and inevitably terrify him as I go on a rant about how much he looks like Al, who’s just the sweetest, kindest, most loving boy! He really is rl Al to me though, he exudes such a sweet, bashful gentleness that’s quintessentially Al. I’m so excited that you get to see him irl! I get incredibly, irrationally overjoyed whenever I see a boy who resembles or dresses like my Al. I just love him so, so much and have zero chill when it comes to him :)
Thank you for sharing this! It made me very screechy
