Mother’s Day is coming up and this is just my small reminder to please not assume everyone still has their mother because going through Mother’s Day without your mom is already hard enough and we don’t need it to be made harder by the people who come up to us asking about what we’re planning for our moms or giving us ideas for how to make our moms happy on that day etc.
You know what I find so interesting on this second read through? How Andrew has this established pecking order and the others just…. Automatically know it??
Like I’m only on chapter 4 of t*k and Neil is pointing out how strange it is that he has become A Part Of Them. How he tries to NOT let them drag him into their little make shift family.
And it’s always the same order: Andrew, Kevin, Neil, Nicky and Aaron. Like why does Neil get such a high rank? Is it because he has a deal with Andrew? But if it’s based on deals would Aaron be at least second place?
Like it’s just so interesting that once Neil is accepts Andrew’s offer they all just rework the order. Like when they moved the furniture at the court so they stayed together. When Neil tried to sit alone, Aaron was like?? Ha no. You sit next to Andrew. Or how they leave a space empty for him on the bus in their exact order.
And I’m just thinking about how it SHIFTS in the next book because of blatant favoritism. Or more like increase in loyalty. The point being Kevin gets bumped to third place and I find it endlessly hilarious and also think it’s sweet that Andrew is so gone on this kid.
Well, you know, in order, Dean has been Sam's brother, protector, father, mother, guardian, friend, best friend, brothers again, partners, codependents, saviour, soulmate, equal, his first choice, his reason for saving the world, his reason for defeating the devil, his only sin is how he let him down, his reason for laughing, for getting up in the morning, for staring at him like he's the only thing in the world. They're each other's love, one and only, and that's how it's always gonna be to me.
yo pls share ur journey au ideas! i always wanted to get into the lore of that game and just... Never Did??? which sucks b/c it looked so cool.
*breathe in* boi
I hope you’re ready for the feels, buckle up cuz this is gonna be intense
The paladins are red cloaked travelers, except for Shiro, who is a white cloaked traveler (more on that later).
Keith is the main character
He meets Hunk in the Bridge
Keith pretty much has a solid goal that is to reach the Mountain, though he doesn’t know why. He just feels like going there, like he’ll learn (or remember) something important if he does.
Hunk doesn’t have a clear goal like he does. Instead, Hunk spends most of his time in the Bridge. He is fascinated by the murals and the story of those who came before. He spends most of his time trying to decipher it and helping other travelers through the Bridge. He rarely crosses it himself though.
Keith meets Lance in the Descent.
Lance is very unique in that he manages to goad Keith into competing with him. Lance is the only one out of all of them who can manage to make Keith forget about the mountain, even if momentarily.
For most of the Descent, Keith and Lance have an amicable race to the bottom (the Tunnels).
It’s one of the few moments throughout the journey where Keith genuinely has fun.
Lance… never follows Keith after they reach the door to the Tunnels. He also never watches the memories of the those who came before. Keith never asks him why and Lance is glad that he doesn’t.
Lance is really scared of the those who came before, though he’ll never say it. He is also really scared of the Guardians roaming the Tunnels (he’s pretty much a case of “BEEN THERE DONE THAT”, LANCE WILL NOT RETURN THERE EVER. Scared is putting it mildly, Lance is heavily traumatized by them).
Much like Hunk, Lance is (seemingly) without a goal. There is more to it than that though (more on that later).
Keith meets Pidge at the Temple.
Pidge is… not okay. Pidge is visibly fidgety. Keith is concerned.
She carries a lantern with her and she’s very interested in the murals but Keith can notice right away the differences between her and Hunk.
Hunk was more into it casually. He loves studying the ruins. Pidge? It’s like she’s in the brink of finding out the whole truth to the universe and she’s so stressed out she’s like a college student during the last month of their last semester. Keith’s pretty sure he saw her running ahead at some point to puke.
Unlike Hunk, Lance and Keith, Pidge already knows the history of the civilization that came before them, though not much. She simply knows of their existence and she knows that shit happened. She’s desperately trying to find out what it was. You could say that is her goal.
Finally, the Mountain. Guess who’s there. Take a wild fucking guess who the final person Keith meets is.
Shiro is… tired.
You do not fuck around with him and you do not fuck around with the Guardians in this area.
But if a Guardian finds someone, Shiro will literally do anything in his power to protect himself and his companion. He willl damn well fight the damn Guardian if he has to.
Shiro doesn’t talk. At all. He doesn’t have any passions like Hunk, he doesn’t have fun like Lance and he does not care for the history of the ancient civilization like Pidge. He doesn’t have a goal like Keith. Shiro is just there and he will sit down and wait for his companion at the base of the mountain then guide them to the summit. That’s his whole purpose.
Bonus: Allura and Coran as the ancestors
Everything else is under a read more because spoilers and also feels
fshhlf no offence but why are the yoi characters so fucking small?? half of my class, filled with 12-13 year olds are literally taller then the majority of the skaters. or like very close to their height. god, theyre 12 or 13, they shouldnt even be close holy shit fshlfskdfj ((this has nothing to do with discourse i just had to say, i saw the height numbers in ur last post abt the ages of otayuri))
You’re asking the wrong person, my dude. There are older teens and adults who are just… small. I’m in my 20s and only 5ft/152cm tall short, even Minami is taller than me. All the yoi characters tower over me lmao, so idk how to answer this haha
I guess it’s helpful for figure skaters to be small… easier to do jumps and all that maybe?
