yep still going

A little thought I had about a Klance scene in season 4

Okay so you all remember this scene, from episode 8 season 2, where Keith is fighting during the Trial of Marmora. The member of the Blade of Marmora he is facing first defeats him, and tells him he should surrender. Then Keith replies “I won’t quit

Then you are probably thinking “Yes, we all know that, Keith is badass and hotheaded and won’t surrender”

Because yes, he wants answers so bad he is ready to fight till death, he finally has the opportunity to learn more about his mother, about himself, he will never give up until he finally has the answers he has been seeking for his whole life.

So now imagine a situation where the paladins are on a mission, and one way or another Lance gets kidnapped by Lotor’s generals. At the same time, Keith comes nose-to-nose to Lotor. Lotor begins to tell him he knows about Keith’s mother, he knows about Keith’s story and he has the answers to every single question Keith has. But Lance manages to tell the others he is being kidnapped, Keith hears it over the com and then he has two choices :
-He stays with Lotor who will answer every single question he has, and let Lance being kidnapped even if he knows there is still a chance that the other paladins save him
-He leaves immediately Lotor to rescue Lance even if he is not sure he will manage to, but if he does so, Lotor tells him he will never reveal him what he knows

And you know what ? I have this strong feeling that Keith would definitely choose the second option. He would choose Lance over the questions he has been dying to have answers to. He would choose Lance, his rival, over the only thing he was ready to die for. He would choose Lance over himself.

This is exactly the kind of scene I want to see (and hopefully Keith manages to save Lance who would make a stupid comment like “I had the situation in hand !” even though no, he hasn’t, and Keith would roll his eyes while dragging him out of there, thinking to himself why the fuck did he choose to save this asshole, but knowing that even if he had the same dilemma again, he would still choose Lance)

Den-O rewatch, episode one! in this episode: a very unlucky boy gets stuck in a tree, is given coffee by a woman in a magic train, accidentally makes a contract with a demon by riding his bike over it, and is unwillingly conscripted into becoming a time-traveling superhero. it’s a very action-packed 23 minutes!

ugggh there’s so much I wanted to draw for this episode, I couldn’t decide. it’s a solid opening that does a great job of immediately establishing the characters with all these wonderful moments of interaction, and it’s all so good! Ryoutarou is somehow even more pathetically adorable than I remember, which I didn’t think was possible. (that poor boy, just…just let him be happy for once.) I’m definitely gonna have to draw more for this episode, something with Hana at least! I have…a lot of feelings about Hana.

I’ll try not to always be tl;dr but I’m excited to get the ball rolling, and this episode gave me lots of happy nostalgic feelings. C: it’s nice to immediately start off remembering why I loved this ridiculous show in the first place.

also: Ryoutarou’s first fight was so appropriately dorky that it was kind of incredible??

On visiting Greece as a Hellenic polytheist

There is something profoundly altering about standing on the soil of those who first honoured the Gods I honour, seeing the places where they worshipped and the land that is still there. Here I am, soon to be two millennia after the fall of this palace, this temple, this sanctuary, here I am with my bound hair and my heart full of devotion towards these same deities the people who died here believed in. Around me are ruins, and yet I am - we are - still here.

There is a strange continuity, even beyond time. This land is interwoven with sacredness. This is the sea Poseidon first claimed as his own, the forests Artemis first roamed. These columns, that oak at Dodona, they were places of utmost reverence, and you can still feel it. The pilgrims who came here came with bowed head and hands full of flowers and incense. They sometimes asked lighthearted questions of the oracles, true - should I marry this girl, should I move to the next village over - but never without respect. When looking up towards the ever-present mountains, it is difficult not to understand how much the Gods deserve it. They are so much greater than us.

It makes me want to be the best I can be for them - to serve them in all my words and actions, like those who walked here before me did. To honour, too, and to remember these ancestors of mine, even if they are only ancestors in humanity.

My religion will come with me when I return, of course. But it is good to sit with these stones. Their warmth in the evening sun reminds me, despite these two thousand years, I am not alone.

(Pictures, in order: the temple of Apollon in Delphi, the oracle of Zeus in Dodona, the sanctuary in Delphi, the path up Mount Olympus, and the Erechtheion in Athens.)

[Continued from Part I and Part II

Ahsoka: [looking around warily] OK. So…we’re not where we need to be. Then where the hell are we? [looking behind Poe] What’s in that room back there?
Poe: [continually sneaking glances at Pirate Kenobi as he talks] Uh…look, I don’t wanna be, um, unwelcoming, but if you guys are gonna be here I’m going to need to see some identification or something. This is a secure facility. The General won’t be happy with me if I let in a bunch of armed strangers. 
Anakin: The General? 
Maul: [menacingly] Allow us to pass or I’ll set you on fire, pretty boy. 
Obi-Wan: Honestly, did we really have to bring Maul? Young man: we’ve traveled here from the past. We weren’t actually trying to come here, we were trying to go back in time, but it appears our calculations were off. Possibly because someone was distracted while he was supposed to be charting our course in the time machine. Anakin. 
Anakin: Captain Kenobi was just trying to show me how much he could bench press! 
Ahsoka: [pushing them both out of the way] Look, uh, mister…
Poe: Poe. Dameron. 
Ahsoka: OK, Poe, we’ll be out of your hair in no time – but I need to be sure that the Force wasn’t trying to bring us here, first. I…sense something. [to the guys] Don’t you feel it, too?
Pirate Kenobi: Yes…it’s…it’s almost like…well, Anakin, but whoever it is it’s not Anakin. 
Maul: I sense that it’s…a formidable adversary. 
Leia: [storming out of the door] Poe, what in the hell is taking so long out here I thought – wh-who are…[squints] General Kenobi? But you’re so young! How…? 
Obi-Wan: I’m sorry, madam – are you saying you know me?
Leia: [to Ahsoka] Ahsoka Tano?!
Ahsoka: Oh my…are y-are you Leia? Little Leia Organa?! This is incredible! We…we just came here from the past – 
Leia: What?!
Anakin: [confidently] That’s right, sister. Time travel. We were actually trying to go back in time and make it so that the whole Empire thing doesn’t happen, but we, uh, took a wrong turn. Probably because of the Force, and not because I was distracted by a handsome pirate. 
Leia: [dryly] Yeah well, if you were I guess I could relate – [studying his face] Oh my God, you’re my father, aren’t you?
Everyone: What?!
Ahsoka: [agape, piecing some things together] Oh…wow.
Anakin: I’m…super confused. Again.
Obi-Wan: [rubbing his temples] As if we didn’t have enough to deal with right now…of course Anakin got someone pregnant at some point in the timeline. Of course.  
Leia: Oh, it gets better, Kenobi. Trust me. You have no idea.
Anakin: I don’t understand! How can this be?!
Maul: [greatly entertained by all of this] Ah, the Jedi. Always such a mess. 
Leia: [surveying the whole group now] Time travel, huh? [to herself] I could fix this. I could fix it all. [to Poe] Get your jacket, we’re going with them.
