11 for Han and Leia 👀

11. “No one will ever believe us.”

“Well, look at it this way. It’ll be a hell of a story,” Han pointed out.

Leia snorted. “I don’t know about that. I’m guessing most of the base has already written their version. Though I don’t think we really have room in here to smoke cigarras afterward.”

“Yeah, cigarras ain’t a good idea for a smuggling compartment,” he agreed. “Don’t really much like smokin’ on the ship anyway.” He shifted a bit, to allow Leia a little more room to maneuver in the cramped space. “You’re being a real good sport about this,” he said. “What’s gotten into you?”

Leia made a dramatic sigh, pressing the back of her hand to her forehead. “Why, Captain Solo,” she said in an exaggerated, breathy voice, “I simply got carried away by passion. I could no longer resist your charms.” As best as she could manage, she draped herself over his body in a languid pose, looking up at him to see his reaction.

She’d been expecting him to laugh; he’d already apologized for accidentally locking them in the smuggling compartment together, and had seemed much more contrite than he would normally be at such a mishap. And, to be fair, it had been her idea to jump into this compartment in the first place, the one that happened to have a faulty lock.

But now Han was looking down at her with wide eyes, his grin not fast enough to mask his surprise at Leia lying across his body. Leia was suddenly very aware of her breathing, and his. She looked away from his face, only to find herself staring at the chest hair peeking out from his shirt.

When did being near Han start to feel so dangerous?

She tore her thoughts away and went back to her plan to joke and bluff her way through this. “The real story—no one will ever believe us,” she said. “So we might as well have a little fun.” She began to loosen her hair from its braid, and Han gasped.

“Um—” he stopped her. “How much fun were you wantin’ to have, exactly?” His breathing had picked up, and hers had too.

Her heart was pounding, but Leia was determined to remain in control. She smirked down at him. “Don’t get excited. Just thought we could give them a little something to talk about after we get rescued.” She raised an eyebrow. “Chewie is coming, right?”

“He’s comin’,” Han confirmed. “But I commed Luke, too, just in case he’s closer.”

“Good.” Leia shifted to find a more comfortable position, and felt Han resting a hand on her hip to support her. There was an awkward silence for several minutes, until they heard Chewie’s footsteps and growls approaching.

“We’re saved,” Han said, and to keep the Rogues talking, Leia bent down and kissed his collar, where the lipstick smudge would be visible. Even if I can’t afford to be.

I felt like letting you know I followed this blog because y'all have great Voltron content overall, not because I particularly shipped Hidge- but you're converting me. Bit by bit I'm slipping into Hidge madness. So good job guys!

WHAT CAN I SAY EXCEPT thank you for your support and welcome aboard the hidge canoe

Ohooohoohoohooohoo :3c

its just such a crass poem… and for no purpose. it uses purposefully provocative language for no point other than to be provocative. the entire point of the poem is to be counterculture, but it never actually comes to a point. it never proposes an argument, its just obtuse. its a stream of conciousness but one without conclusion.

So a friend of mine in instagram and I were having this conversation of how the vAs are so precious and a gift to us fans so here’s a little tribute for them. Keep up the great work and we will always support and love you guys~ 😘

Australian Mammals that you didn’t know existed

You hear a lot about Kangaroos and Koalas and such, so I thought I’d post some animals that are unknown to lots of people, even some Aussies don’t realise we have them. Sadly most of these are on the endagered species list.

Also some fun facts added so you can have an idea of how awesome they are.

Quolls

Considered Australia’s ‘native cat’ these guys are carnivorous marsupials and have the ability to bite through bone. 4 species; Eastern Quoll, Spotted-Tailed Quoll (or Tiger Quoll), Western Quoll (or chuditch) and Northern Quoll. ranging in size from 25cm to 75 cm long.

Kultarr

Cute little insect eaters, again a marsupial. Can move at speeds of around 13km/hr. Only about 10cm long.

Bettongs

Marsupial. Of which there are 5 species (and at least another 2 extinct); Eastern Bettong, Boodie, Woylie, Northern Bettong and Rufous Rat-Kangaroo (or Rufous Bettong). They seem to get along well with wombats, where I work they enter the wombat exhibits of a night to share their food.

Bilby

Marsupial. There was once 2 species of Bilby, sadly the Lesser Bilby became extinct in the 1950s and the Greater Bilby is greatly endangered. In the same family as Bandicoots. Omnivores with backwards facing pouches (as they dig a lot this stops dirt getting in their pouch) Australian’s know these guys through the story of the Easter Bilby. Rabbits are considered a major reason for their decrease in numbers as they eat all the food and out-breed the Bilbies.

Numbat

Marsupial. Aka the banded anteater or Walpurti. Mainly eats termites. Emblem of Western Australia. Up to 45cm long. One of the few marsupials that are diurnal (active of a day). Eats up to 20,000 termites each day. Estimated population of less than 1000.

Grey-Headed Flying Fox

Aka Fruit Bat. Placental mammal. Called a flying fox because they have a fox-like face and can fly.
Babies are called pups. Megabat. Wingspan of about 1m. May travel 50kms in one night for food. Eats pollen, nectar, sap and fruit. Long distance seed distributors and plant pollenators. Each colony plants around 30,000 trees a night. Without these guys we don’t have any of our lovely bush and ecosystem that we all rely on. Have very good eyesight and no echolocation.

Greater Stick-Nest Rat

Placental mammal. Up to 26cm long. Don’t have a ratty face. Were extinct on the mainland but through breeding programs have been re-introduced. Herbivores. Chew branches to length and weave them together to make a nest which can be up to 1m high and 1.5m wide.

Other unknown Australian Mammals you can look up:
Antechinus
Pygmy Possum
Feathertail Glider (smallest glider in the world)
Southern Ningaui
Greater Glider
Potoroos
Pademelons
Eastern False Pipistrelle

Sadly lots of these could go extinct within the next 20 years, and people haven’t even had the chance to really get to appreciate them yet.
**PS the Koala is also in danger of becoming extinct in the wild in the next 20years**
