“Lately, I find the truth has become so elusive, often imaginary. But, in the end, it’s all that we’re left with, isn’t it? What is real, what you can taste and touch and feel. The words that pass between us as we look each other in the eye are all we have to hold onto. The truth.I hold it dear.”
in honor of the walking dead season 3 getting released the other day or so. i will write angsty headcannons ft the voltron crew. and possible reader. Part one will center around Lance because I realized I was writing a lot for him and decided to spilt it into parts.
It’s summer when the outbreak happens. Lance lives in Arizona, he’s seventeen at the time.
Lance was celebrating his youngest sister’s, Elizabeth, sixth birthday when his tio came running into the house, his smoking break cut short. Yelling at everyone to turn on the television. Lance was curious, because his tio was very determined to get a smoke in and wouldn’t cut it short for something stupid. So immediately he had everyone’s attention.
Lance’s mom cut on the tv and changed it to the news channel. The news anchors were talking about a weird disease outbreak that was affecting the recently deceased. They were told to stay indoors for now and lock the doors. The whole family was unsure what to do or think, the party was cut short and everyone went home. No one went past the fence to see what was on the other side. The neighborhood was eerily quiet and that lasted a few more days until Lance’s dad decided it was time to leave.
They were running low on food and he was going to go to the grocery store and visit Lance’s uncle. They waited anxiously for around two hours and then Lance’s dad came running into the house holding his neck, blood seeping through his fingers. They immediately all rushed to him, and his mother was cleaned the wound and trying to calm his dad down.
His dad told them about how the grocery store was completely abandoned along with the roads. It’s like everyone had ran away, it was a ghost town. So he went to his brother’s home and there was blood on the doorsteps, and that immediately caught his attention so be rushed inside to see if his brother was okay. His brother was on the ground hugging his knees, blood all over him. He reached down to help him up and was immediately attacked. His dad was trying to push him off but he was stronger then him. But he bit into his neck. His dad just remembers pushing him off of him and running back into the car.
Lance doesn’t know what to think. He’s shaking a little and his little sister, Elizabeth tugs on his sleeve and asks him what’s happening. He doesn’t even know what to say, and he responded truthfully, that he doesn’t know. His dad and mom go to their room to talk privately about what’s happening.
He doesn’t see them for the rest of the night.
Him and his older sister Gabriel have to make dinner and keep the younger two, Elizabeth and Andre from bothering their parents and keep them quiet. Lance wonders if the oldest out of all of them, Alex is okay.
At one point in the night Lance thinks he hears screaming and something slamming into the ground in the next room. But he blames it on his over reactive imagination.
He awakes to screaming the next morning. He immediately shoots up from the bed and runs into the other room to find his sister on the ground clutching her hand as blood slowly seeps from the wound. She’s sobbing and yells at Lance to run away with the others.
Lance hears her loud and clear but he still makes his way towards the room. Immediately upon entering his mother and father jump on top of Gabriel and she’s screaming. Andre and Elizabeth are sobbing and screaming. Lance yells at them to stay back.
His sister manages to push the two off and she yells at Lance. He tries to rush in but she pushes him back. She tells him to shut the door and leave with the kids immediately. To find their other family members. She slams the door shut.
All he can hear is screaming and the sound of flesh tearing. He slides down the door and brings his knees to his chest and chokes out a sob. His siblings are shaking and run towards him. He has blood on his shirt. He’s shaking and tears are running down his face.
The screaming stops after what seems like forever. He can hear groaning coming from the other side. The three of them stay huddled together sobbing and shaking quietly for an hour after it all happened. Lance can’t let his little brother and sister get hurt.
He stands up slowly and tells them to grab a backpack and pack only what they need. They are before 1pm, before nightfall. They nod and slowly get up to do so.
Lance heads to his room, he cleans the blood off of him and cleans his face. He throws off the bloody shirt, he can’t even look at it. He grabs a backpack and packs a few extra pairs of clothes. Some small items that hold a special meaning to him. Family photos. Essential things. He then goes into the kitchen and packs the remaining food and grabs water bottles. His siblings come into the room bags packed and dressed out of their pajamas.
Lance tells them to sit on the couch for a minute while he does some last things. He grabs a pen and paper and begins writing, “My mother, father, and sister are in this room. Please don’t hurt them.”. He tapes it to the bedroom door and even goes as far as to go out back and grab planks of wood and puts it over the door. To make sure that they don’t break down the door.
He picks up the house phone and he knows that the line went down a few days ago but he just wants to try one more time before they leave. He dials his big brother’s number, of course nothing goes through. He lets out a sigh and grabs the car keys and motions for his siblings to follow.
He tries reassuring his little brother and sister that he will make sure that they are okay and he won’t let anything happen to them. He locks the door and looks at his childhood home one last time. His eyes start watering again but he turns around an heads for the SUV.
He fumbles around for a minute trying to find a map and eventually finds one. He decides to head to the next town over. It would take about an hour to get there. The car ride there is quiet and gloomy. The roads are empty and the sun is already starting to set.
The next town isn’t any better, he does find one person. A middle aged man, who lost everyone the first two days. The man calls the disease infected dead Muertos a simple name but Lance knows what it means. The man’s name is David and he tells them that he’s heading towards the South. It gets cold down there and there’s less people so maybe they didn’t catch the outbreak.
Lance decides that that is where they’ll go. Even if there is a tiny chance that the outbreak didn’t reach down there then he’s willing to take that risk. As long as his siblings will be okay. The man ask if they have a weapon and Lance realizes that he never brought one. He shakes his head slowly and the man kindly offers a 9mm pistol and two boxes of ammo. Lance refuses to take it, the man says that he has a whole bag full of ammo and that he’ll be fine. He tells that he will need it to protect his siblings and himself, the world has already gone to hell and it’s only been two weeks since this all happened. He also points Lance in the direction of a Hunting store that has a lot of weapons and ammo, and says that he should go there before heading out. Lance thanks him and gives a a few cans of food as thanks. They spilt ways and wish each other luck and safety.
Lance keeps Elizabeth and Andre close by his side he holds the gun tightly in his hand. He’s shot a gun before, he lives in the Southwest so of course he knows how to use one. He doesn’t want to use it though and prays that he never has to. They walk down the quiet and abandoned streets towards the hunting supply store. Seems like most of the supplies has been stolen. But he manages to find a few good things. Three hunting knives, he hands one to both his siblings telling them to only use in case of an emergency and when he’s not around. He finds another 9mm pistol hidden under a pile of cardboard and he finds more ammo. He takes whatever food is left and quickly leaves to get back on the road.
The first three months went by well, they encountered only nice people and traded things. They had just entered Texas, which it was slow progress but he didn’t want to rush anything or push the kids too hard. They also encountered a few Muertos but Lance learned that they were slow and the three were able to outrun. Andre turned eleven during those three months and they made the best birthday they could with the situation. Lance was even able to find a action figure that Andre was talking about before this all happened.
Their luck ran out when they encountered two older men. The two men held both of siblings at gun point demanding for Lance to hand over everything and he’d let them live. Lance couldn’t do that, it put the three in a lot danger. They got a few good punches on Lance. But one of them slipped and that was Lance’s opportunity. He didn’t know what came over him but he ran for his gun and shot both of them dead. He was shaking and sobbing, he didn’t want to kill anyone. His siblings were the one comforting him. They left that area immediately.
Another month went by before they met another guy just as they were about to leave Texas. He was around Lance’s age, his name was Hunk. He was kind and asked if he could tag along with Lance. Lance hesitantly agreed to let Hunk tag along, he somehow trusted someone he barely met and so did his siblings. The three of them and Hunk immediately clicked. It was nice having someone else, Hunk was much bigger and stronger then Lance. Hunk was much more mature and observant then Lance. The group headed towards Tennessee.
ppl act like maggie treats alex with respect and takes care of her and listens to her because she’s “whipped” she does it because she’s a good girlfriend and gives alex what she deserves. like idk i feel like ppl are characterizing maggie as like “oh wow im so whipped idc what she does i’m gonna support her all the way” when it’s not that… passive? like. maggie fully thinks through what she does for alex. and saying it’s just maggie being whipped, like this is something out of the ordinary, or extravagant, somehow feels shallow to me. maggie gives alex what she thinks alex needs, whether it be consolation or advice or w/e like if maggie was truly “whipped” for alex she probably wouldn’t have prioritized her job over alex? but she did bc those are her morals, and she knew alex would be okay w that. maggie doesn’t JUST treat alex like some being to be worshipped… she just treats alex like an equal. and sometimes that’s the love that lasts longer.
okay i said i was gonna tell yall what was going on and i really wanna ask this girl to be my gf bc we’ve been talking for a while (gonna be 1 month in 2 days) and shes so cute and we both like each other but i’m so scared she’s gonna say no :(
like, she has already said that shes not talking to or going out w anyone else bc she likes me, but still!!! i’m so scared!! she lives in england and its really far but i’m probably going there in december so thats already something, i guess. i made like a playlist on spotify w cute songs and i wrote a little text that i wanna read to her and it was so hard bc the first letter of each song is the proposal and i’m p sure if she says no i’m gonna cry and itd be awful
My name is Zak Bagans. I’ve never believed in ghosts until I came face to face with one. So I set out on a quest to capture what I once saw onto video….With no big camera crews following us around, I am joined only by my fellow investigator Nick Groff and our equipment tech Aaron Goodwin. The three of us will travel to the some of most highly active paranormal locations, where we will spend an entire night, being locked down from dusk until dawn….Raw…Extreme…These are our Ghost Adventures.
Okay so can I talk for a second about how insanely impressive it is that the Galra empire has been one cohesive empire for literally thousands of years.
That’s literally unimaginable for me like earthlings can’t even go twenty seconds without killing each other but the Galra are apparently so unified and they have been collectively kicking the universe’s ass for over 10,000 years.
I cannot even begin to fathom how many trillions of Galra there must be. How is the power divided. How can one guy be in charge of it all. What is emperor Zarkon’s sovereignty based on (other than his age) and how can he so effectively control what has to be an uncountable number of subjects. How many commanders are there and how can any one of them be considered important enough to talk to the emperor of 90% of the known universe.
What about the problems in Galra society? They are obviously an emotional species, so how is sympathy so well suppressed without extreme political backlash that isn’t just solved by murdering a third of the population, or did they make a calculated decision to cut their losses and just raise generation after generation of selective sociopaths?What base values does the average Galra have? Surely there’s some level of god-complex if the Galra can destroy entire civilizations without batting an eye.
Is there cultural diversity? Are there any remnants of Galran society that still exist from Zarkon’s childhood or has it all changed?
How much have the Galra changed genetically over 10,000 years? Are they acclimated to life in space in artificial environments? Does the Galra home planet even exist anymore? What kind of genetic diversity is there? Is there any isolation? What are desirable versus undesirable traits in Galran culture, and is it consistent across the board?
There’s just a lot i want to know about the largest population of the Voltron universe that we haven’t even begun to touch on in the show. And then there’s the issue of aftermath. Even if they manage to defeat Zarkon, it is literally impossible to change such an massive group of people overnight. They are the overwhelming majority, and it’s obviously immoral (and impractical) to just order the execution of a species, but it’ll definitely be a challenge to undo 10,000 years of damage universe-wide on both sides of the war. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what they address in the coming seasons.
is the best and weirdest and most hilarious and craziest and most wonderful and most perfect thing on this world in THIS UNIVERSE THE WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE GENIUS OF IT AND HOW MUCH I LOVE IT DONT EVEN EXIST OKAY
