If Jonathan wasn’t a figure skater, he would be a dancer and follow his mothers footsteps, but nope, Christophe came into his life and now he spends his days training to become France’s top skater to compete against other skaters (x)
(Happy ObiMaul headcanon for @yaoikuza-probably won’t be the last thing i tag you in)
AU where Maul doesn’t die; Obi-Wan never intended to kill
him just temporarily knock him out so he could have some time to think. Through
that act of mercy, not only does Maul heal but he and Obi-Wan become friends
and see they have a lot in common. Most importantly, they share a love for
reading. Obi-Wan has collected tons of books over time, and has multiple copies
of some of the same volumes. So he gives Maul a lot of his volumes, and of
course Maul reads them quickly despite their length. After a while, the two
will just sit there, discussing the books, and the characters, themes, etc…etc..
And though Obi-Wan has read these books repeatedly and knows
them like the back of his hand, having conversations with Maul intrigues him.
There are themes Obi-Wan has never thought of, or certain things in the books
that he’s missed that Maul notices, and it just sets up a lovely discussion.
And with Maul, talking about any book is always more
exciting since Obi-Wan has been alone and he too enjoys delving deeper into the
pages with another mind to discuss with. And through reading, discussing (the
present, and their pasts) and just spending time together, they grow close.
They already have so many similarities so it isn’t hard for a bond, especially
when they no longer have anything to lose.
Obi-Wan has found a friend and companion in the least way he
thought possible and the same goes for Maul. It’s safe to say the both are
This of course goes on for a few more months until Maul is
healed, and announces that he’s going to leave. Obi-Wan knew his time was
coming, but he is saddened by it. Yet, he doesn’t try to stop Maul, because he
knows there’s still a lot Maul needs do for himself. He’s healed but not
completely. Though he no longer hates Obi-Wan there is still a lot of pain and
hatred that only a self journey will fix. So Obi-Wan lets him go, he encourages
And before Maul leaves, Obi-Wan gives him every single one
of the books they’ve read and discussed together. It’s a rather bitter sweet
departure, because something in Obi-Wan’s gesture tells Maul that he will may
never see him again. But they hope for the best for each other and both depart
on good terms.
Listen I know we all love bilingual Lance and boy oh boy guess who’s here with some bilingual headcanons!!
•Lance used to speak fluent spanish as a child, but when he started going to public school, he just … Lost that ability.
•Lance can understand some words and phrases in spanish but doesn’t really know how to form sentences. (he knows all the cursewords and tries to use them as much as he can bc that’s Cool™)
•He can understand enough words to get the gist of what people are saying.
•Lance started to feel kind of detatched from his family since he couldn’t speak spanish and basically everyone else (save for the younger kids) could.
•His family doesn’t put any effort into teaching him spanish bc they want him to be more American than Hispanic (a sad truth that I unfortunately experienced)
•Lance starts to take spanish classes seriously when he gets to high school. He slowly learns how to form proper sentences, and he’s at the top of his class bc he wants to connect with his family language-wise. He tries hard, and grasps the language without any help from his fluent-spanish-speaking parents.
•One time, he had to do a project in spanish class, but he didn’t know how to form the sentence he wanted. So, he goes to his parents for help.
•His parents are from different regions of south america, so they speak different forms of spanish. Whatever he’s learning at school is. Not. The same.
•He had to go back and forth from his dad to his mom for one goddamn question like holy crow.
•"No, no! Your father is wrong! I speak PROPER spanish!“
-That was an actual quote from my mother it’s legit.
•His father ends up being right. At least in terms of School Spanish.
•Lance’s teacher ended up taking points away anyway bc she knew he wasn’t capable of speaking in such eloquent, complex spanish.
•He once went over his vocab list with his fam since he forgot his spanish dictionary at school. Another mistake. Don’t ask your different-spanish-speaking parents for translations when they’re in the same room.
•They spent more time arguing about the translation than actually translating.
•Mom: “Aficion? I’ve never heard that word in my life! It doesn’t exist!”
•"It means ceiling fan, mom.“
•M: “Oh! Then you mean ‘hincha’!”
•Dad: “Hincha?! Are you trying to teach our son slang?!”
•"Wait, that’s slang?!“
•D: “Aficion es the tiki tiki.”
•M: “No. La tiki tiki es la hincha!”
•They slowly seep into full spanish and Lance is watching on in amusement.
•He ends up texting his aunt about the right answer, and she tells him that it’s aficion.
•Mom loses the argument.
•He has a presentation in class for an oral test. He knows he has a great accent and great understanding of spanish, but when he goes up to speak, he can’t say anything.
•Everything comes out slow and stuttered, but he still gets an A+ bc his pronunciation is on point.
•There’s a non-hispanic/latinx kid in his class. They get straight A’s and speak faster than Lance. Lance is jealous of them. It’s not fair that a person who isn’t surrounded by latin culture can speak it so well, while he can’t.
•They’re the top 2 in the class, but Lance is always second. He’s always second in everything.
•Eventually, Lance learns enough Spanish to understand full sentences. He gets a giddiness in his chest when he can understand EXACTLY what is being said in spanish. He loves it.
•Even when his parents are scolding him in spanish, he tries his best not to smile bc he UNDERSTANDS!!
•He tries to get his parents/family to communicate with him in Spanish more bc he’s so proud that he can FINALLY understand them. He feels connected to them again, and loves the feeling of embracing his heritage at last.
•Then … His family asks hin why he never talks back in spanish.
•Lance is still shy and insecure about his spanish, bc sometimes he makes mistakes. And sometimes, fluent speakers are not the nicest when it comes to that. He’s afraid they’ll make fun of him bc he’s still learning.
•He goes to a restaurant that has people who only speak spanish in it. He then has to order from the menu.
•He asks for a soda. When the waitress leaves, his entire family is beaming at him. He asks why.
•They gush about his perfect pronunciation and format. They’re proud of him. They had no idea he knew it so well.
•Lance is almost brought to tears bc his family is just as proud of him as he is - especially on something so important to him.
•He talks and laughs with his family at dinner again after that.
•When he gets in space, he tries to keep himself knowledgeable in spanish. He doesn’t want to forget again.
•He listens to old spanish radio shows and songs all of the time. He listens to sports, no matter which kind, in spanish.
•He tries to teach the other paladins Spanish. He grins when they start cussing under their breath in spanish. Sometimes, the paladins will just slip into it and they’ll forget that they’re speaking another language bc it’s so second-nature to them.
•But Lance notices, and it feels a little more like home.
NEVER in MY WHOLE LIFE will I ever see anything more amazing than this. I looked at this image and my vision became 20/20 again, my skin is now baby soft, and random people on the street came up to me and started to hand me fistfuls of cash
FOR GOD SAKES PEOPLE the acid jellies on his head look like ears, THEY LOOK LIKE LITTLE BEAR EARS
don’t ever let yourself believe that you are ugly when comparing yourself to a white person, western beauty standards are ridiculous and warped. your skin is beautiful. your eyes are beautiful. your features are beautiful. your hair is beautiful. you are beautiful.
