Watching Voltron Legendary Defender I began to notice something that the entire team has in common: they all without question protect Pidge. The team will go out of their way to make sure Pidge is safe, and anyone who attacks Pidge is immediately dealt with.
Pidge draws the attention of the commander?
Turn the commander’s attention onto you.
Falling down a slide of death? Put Pidge on your shoulders out of reach.
Pidge is almost never standing by themself. Someone is always near them, and normally? It’s Shiro and Hunk, the two biggest guys on the team.
You will almost never see Pidge on the edge of the group, Pidge is never exposed.
Not even the sloth thing touches the Pidge.
Everyone else is complaining? We can keep going. Pidge has a breakdown? REST TIME.
It was all verbal until the Princess threw food goop at Pidge?
GAME ON, ALLURA. Immediate retaliation from Keith.
There’s a thing falling at you, no way is Shiro going to let his Pidge get squished.
Nothing harms the Pidge.
Alien has Pidge held in painful grip, rest of the team can’t do anything?
LANCE WAKES UP FROM A F**KING COMA TO SHOOT THE ALIEN!
In short? Pidge is precious and must be protected at all costs. You touch Pidge? The rest of the team will make you regret it.
Because I love this child and he needs more love, especially his relationship with Yuuri ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
While Phichit is an incredibly friendly lovable cinnamon roll, he won’t stand for anything threatening his best friend Yuuri, even if the threat happens to be someone Yuuri loves. Yuuri clearly adores the Victor he knows now (just as much as he idolized the distant figure in the past), but Phichit won’t forget how much Victor hurt Yuuri in the past, unintentional or not.
I headcanon that on top of being a skilled figure skater, Phichit is an academic genius who skipped grades and entered college in Detroit super early where he met Yuuri, which explains their long acquaintance despite the age difference. He is very, VERY protective of Yuuri. I’ll put up a more detailed headcanon post later (and if there’s interest, possibly prequel comic of pre-YOI anime Detroit college days).
This is what I saw today at the US Holocaust Museum Memorial in D.C. this “All lives matter” sentence as someone’s supposed take away from what can only be described as a humbling experience.
If this doesn’t sum up the ignorance of the “all lives matter” movement… I don’t know what will.
Setting aside the fact people were wearing their “make America great again hats” indoors and through the exhibits (through the entire floor on refugees and how many Jewish lives were lost to people’s racism that could have been prevented), and ignoring the girls taking selfies at the memorial as well as screaming, unattended children, people kissing in front of hundreds of photos of victims, general disrespect, etc… *this* person’s “takeaway” was the one to break me.
All lives matter.
Where do you even begin to interpret that in the given context? I can only begin to assume they made this as their statement to black lives matter and the idea behind that movement.
To the author of this statement, I ask:
The Nazis that you saw photos of burning and shooting children, do their lives matter equal at the holocaust museum?
The profiteers whose vicious actions of stealing wealth and land from displaced peoples were depicted on the wall, do their lives matter equally at the holocaust museum?
The neighbors of Jews who you read about selling their friends, doctors and schoolmates out to secret police groups, do their lives matter equally at the holocaust museum?
Because by saying “all lives matter” at this museum, you are diminishing the lives that the museum was built to remember and mourn.
By saying “all lives matter” at a black lives matter demonstration, you are diminishing their plight and mission for equality.
Jewish lives matter.
That is the acceptable takeaway from this museum. Saying anything else is an insult to our families, ancestors, and the horrifically murdered.
Melodrama by Lorde (Scorpio Sun, Virgo Moon, Capricorn Rising)
Aries: Supercut I’m someone you maybe might love I’ll be your quiet afternoon crush Be your violent overnight rush Make you crazy over my touch
But it’s just a supercut of us
Taurus: Writer In The Dark I am my mother’s child, I’ll love you ‘til my breathing stops I’ll love you 'til you call the cops on me But in our darkest hours, I stumbled on a secret power I’ll find a way to be without you, babe
Gemini: Homemade Dynamite A couple rebel top gun pilots Flying with nowhere to be Don’t know you super well But I think that you might be the same as me Behave abnormally
Let’s let things come out of the woodwork I’ll give you my best side, tell you all my best lies Yeah, awesome right?
Cancer: Hard Feelings These are what they call hard feelings of love When the sweet words and fevers all leave us right here in the cold Alone with the hard feelings of love God I wish I believed ya when you told me this was my home
Leo: The Louvre Our thing progresses I call and you come through Blow all my friendships To sit in hell with you But we’re the greatest They’ll hang us in the Louvre Down the back, but who cares—still the Louvre
Virgo: Liability So I guess I’ll go home into the arms of the girl that I love The only love I haven’t screwed up She’s so hard to please but she’s a forest fire I do my best to meet her demands, play at romance We slow dance in the living room, but all that a stranger would see Is one girl swaying alone, stroking her cheek
Libra: Sober II (Melodrama) Know you won’t remember in the morning when I speak my mind Lights are on and they’ve gone home, but who am I? Oh, how fast the evening passes, cleaning up The champagne glasses
We told you this was melodrama
Scorpio: Green Light Well those rumors, they have big teeth Hope they bite you Thought you said that you would always be in love But you’re not in love no more Did it frighten you How we kissed when we danced on the light up floor?
Sagittarius: Perfect Places Are you lost enough? Have another drink, get lost in us This is how we get notorious, oh 'Cause I don’t know If they keep tellin’ me where to go I’ll blow my brains out to the radio, oh
Capricorn: Liability (Reprise) All of the dreams that get harder All of the things that I offer you And all of the shit that we harbor Make all of the kids in the choirs sing woo-hoo Maybe all this is the party
Aquarius: Loveless Bet you wanna rip my heart out Bet you wanna skip my calls now Well guess what? I like that ‘Cause I’m gonna mess your life up Gonna wanna tape my mouth shut Look out, lovers
We’re L.O.V.E.L.E.S.S Generation
Pisces: Sober Ain’t a pill that could touch our rush But what will we do when we’re sober? When you dream with a fever Bet you wish you could touch our rush But what will we do when we’re sober?
