you've probably all seen it before i know but

  • ---Outside Keith's Room---
  • Lance: Hey, Keith? Buddy, you in there?
  • Keith: Go away Lance.
  • Lance: //Enters anyway//
  • ---Inside Keith's Room---
  • Keith: I don't want to talk Lance, just leave me alone ok?
  • Lance: Hey, nobody's seen you since breakfast, who said anything about talking? I came to make sure you hadn't died or something.
  • Keith: ....
  • Lance: But we could always talk since I'm here now anyway. //Sits on the bed//
  • Keith: Lance-
  • Lance: C'mon man, everyone's worried about you. You barely show your face around the castle, and whenever you do you avoid everyone like you're on some kind of stealth mission.
  • Keith: //Scoffs// Nobody is worried about me, and I'm not avoiding everyone... I just...
  • Lance: //Frowns// Keith, we're a team, if you're upset, we all feel it. The whole team's out of whack. Just talk to me - despite what Pidge might have told you, I am great with feelings and junk.
  • Keith: I don't - It's just - Ugh, it's just easier not to see everyone judging me, and hating me if I'm not around them, ok?! I don't care what you say, I've seen the way they look at me - and I look normal now, but what if it gets worse? What if I do start going purple? Or I sprout fur or something stupid like that. How would they look at me then? I'd be just another Galra....... Lance, I don't think I should be on the team anymore.
  • Lance: Wait what? Are you kidding! You think you should be off the team? The team that the Red Lion chose you for? That's crazy! Keith, you've saved everyone's butts loads of times, what would we do without you? How would we form Voltron? And you know, keep the universe safe?
  • Keith: You'd find someone else-
  • Lance: There is no one else Keith! *You're* the Red Paladin. So what if you're Galra? ... Well, sure, there's the whole being a member of the race that's 'trying to take over the universe, destroy entire civilisations and trying to kill us all the time' thing but-
  • Keith: Great, that makes me feel much better.
  • Lance: Well when I say it like that it sounds bad, but that's not all you are. You're Keith first, before any of all that. It's just been a bit of a shock - it's raw you know? Everyone will come to terms with it, trust me... Like I don't know if you've noticed, but Hunk's pretty much got an alien girlfriend
  • Keith: What?
  • Lance: Sure, nobody's judging. And we've all seen Shiro's badass glowing arm thing - also Galra I might add. Does it make us think any less of him? No way! And I'm also convinced Pidge is part computer, I just don't have any proof yet.
  • Keith: //Smiles//
  • Lance: Allura's probably gonna take a little longer than the rest of us, but she's still hurting, and hey, she's like over 10,000 years old, she just needs to get with the times. Like, Galra Keith? Whatever, am I right?
  • Keith: ...... //Chuckles// Thanks Lance.
  • Lance: So don't worry, just come back to the team, we miss you. We've all got our little hang ups and stuff, so it's ok
  • Keith: Yeah, everyone except you - you're perfect
  • Lance: Uh-
  • Keith: - ! //Flustered//
  • Lance: //Flustered as hell//

How did Fin lose his arm? (You've probably already gotten this before but I haven't seen it.)

In the Continuation War…

((Finland’s map used to look like this in 1920-1940. Notice how it sort of looks like a lady in a skirt with her arms raised? (That’s the Finnish Maiden yo. Though we all know hetalia’s personification is a dude but whatever.)))

((This map marks the areas that Finland ceded to the Soviet Union after the Continuation war. The most noticeable change is the now missing other “arm”. Great fuel for fucked up headcanons.))

Hey so, you've probably been asked this before and if so you can just completely ignore this. But. I know there's been plenty of talk about the differences of Dean and Sam's personalities and families in It's a Terrible Life, but I've yet to seen anyone (as far as I remember anyway) talk about theories of why Sam's fiancé is Madison, and not Jess? Or Sarah? Far as I've come on that theory is, maybe because of the Werewolf thing? And how it relates to Sam's own "demons"? Thoughts?

I like your optimism that I have already been asked all of *the* most obscure questions :D Hehe

The fact Sera wrote both episodes is my first port of call, and Madison would be her own character so faster to mind. I think Heart is also one of her pet favourite episodes although do not ask me how I know that because It’s almost certainly something I read 7 years ago :P 

I would also have to assume on a boring technical level that they were trying to come up with uncanny valley lives, and Dean’s fake life already collected up Bobby and Ellen and Jo, while Sam’s life was deliberately meant to be the less well-developed one because Zach had just thrown together enough to stop him realising the game was up *immediately*, while not bothering to make a complete enough backstory that Sam wouldn’t help motivate Dean because without the much bigger cracks through which their old life came, Sam wouldn’t be able to motivate him in the same way. I don’t think he made many mistakes in the set up except mildly underestimating Dean (while still getting exactly what he wanted out of him by the end of the episode - in the short term, in the long term that’s when Dean gives him the “stab you in the face” warning :P), since he would have been constantly watching them, like an ant farm, and could have fixed Sam if he WASN’T meant to poke at his own backstory. Sam was never really their focus since Ruby had him under lock down doing her side of things and the angels by that point were all aboard on starting the apocalypse.

So I think the last most obvious reason it’s Madison is because Sam was just being mocked as a disposable character, and it really comes across that way when you know the whole story and who set it up:

SAM
Yeah, ‘cause I only moved here ‘cause I just broke up with my fiancée, Madison. But I called her number and I got a damn animal hospital.

And in that sense, Madison is really tragic for us to know was a really awful thing that happened to Sam romantically since Jess, but also has this set up to be mocked and a too-easy joke for Zach. I think if it had been Jess there would have been the danger of him remembering too much, in character, and out of character if the writing process was casting around for a love interest to have a “hilarious” joke from Zach about them, Sam’s girl of the week options are limited and Sarah and Lori from hookman in the first season were both fairly sweet and survived the episode without much interpersonal drama for Sam, while Madison was also very tragic so mocking her and what Sam went through with her, is a very blatant example from the first couple of seasons of Sam being put through the wringer - I think he cried more in that episode than he’s done for the rest of the show since :P There’s much more obvious material to make a joke from than most of his other romantic connections and the only one who he actually cared about (since season 3 had him mostly just being set up for Ruby, while lusting after Bela a little… and honestly at this point trying to think who else Sam has been linked to, the Bad Writer Voice in my brain that comes up with all the junk pile snark suggested that old woman from 3x06 who pawed all over Sam - “But I called her number and I got a damn retirement home.” … So let’s be glad it was Madison :P)

Anyways, if there’s a wider meta purpose you probably got it… Madison is one of the monsters that Sam’s been connected to romantically, and actually Dean seems to think Sam’s got together with a lot more monsters than he actually has because in 4x14 he has some line about what is it with Sam and monster chicks or something, thinking he’s sleeping with the siren (whoops) and he’s reacting to Sam saying he and Ruby are together. Madison is really the only other major example, although Dean also thought Sam had a thing for Ava who he might not have qualified as a monster at the time, but *would* have classified as like finding like if he thought Sam had a crush, since they both had psychic powers and by season 4 that’s all the backstory to Sam’s struggle with humanity. (I mean honestly, Madison seemed to traumatise them both for different reasons so I could get if she stuck out in Dean’s memory even if he seems to tease Sam for it, it would be making light of it as a coping mechanism to the awful stuff they’ve done on the job.)

I’d also get if the show wanted us to think Sam had a bigger history with this than he does - hence the line in 4x14 AND this reminder about Madison - because they like making generalisations of their history to tell the story, focusing on one or two incidents and making it sound like a life-long pattern (despite Jess being Sam’s defining romance and characterised by the normality and that he lied to her about monsters to protect a bubble of normality). We won’t find out about Amy Pond until season 7 aka they don’t write it until then, so it’s retroactively adding to the pattern that was barely a pattern in season 4, but if they want to build up the image of Sam being attracted to monsters as part of the question about his own nature, trying to remind us that Ruby isn’t his first is a good way to go about that. 

Then they end the season with Dean or false representations of him repeatedly telling Sam that he’s a monster or he isn’t human any more and Sam picks Ruby over Dean, and throws his own humanity away blah blah blah we all know the story :P (I say, blah-ing away one of the best season finales on the show.)

… TBH the show trying to set up this narrative that you are what you sleep with just reminds me that in the version of the Winchester Gospels where Sam doesn’t drink demon blood, this is all excellent supporting narrative/examples to build up the ridiculous counterpoint Destiel subtext going on on the other side :P Which is kind of a joke I make but season 4 is told a LOT through their sexual preferences and encounters. If I was going to write a serious academic paper about the show where you don’t need to make the same disclaimers about intent and interpretation as you do on Tumblr it would be excellent to examine season 4′s main arc and plot points as told through the representations of their sexuality, because the Sam/Ruby, and Dean/Cas/Anna major narrative parallel of you are what you sleep with is barely scratching the surface… It’s a huge thing. The siren episode doesn’t just *happen* to be in this season and it’s not a random isolated incident, it’s one of the many ways this undercurrent of the season shows up. And that puts the Sam and monsters subtext directly next to Dean and dudes, which lines up perfectly with playing Sam/Ruby off Dean/Cas for the length of the season. Hey and lo and behold in 4x17 Sam has a history with Madison, and Dean has a hot co-worker he hangs out with, and a deep insecurity about the idea of Sam hitting on him in the elevator (… at work), and some queercoded behaviours, and a complete lack of love life mentioned in the main text, including shoving Jo hard into the sister box in the same exchange we find out about Sam and Madison…

EA: Hi ^_^ I think I may have sent this ask to a blog that's no longer active but I can't remember whether or not I did or didn't send this to anyone? So I'm sorry if you've already seen this ask before >_> but can I request a Zenyatta/whoever else you'd like with a crush on someone who's in a toxic relationship? Please and thank you >_<

Nope, I have not seen this ask before so it’s all good! ^-^

~~~

  • Zen’s a pretty chill guy
  • Like, he’s a man of peace
  • He’s also a man of protection though and this kind of thing is definitely not acceptable
  • He probably recognizes it’s a toxic relationship before you do and warns you that it’s such
  • But you tell him not to worry and continue on with it
  • Of course the man was right though
  • You know it, he knows it
  • You don’t know he knows it and don’t want him to know it so you cover it up
  • Even if it is all constant fights and your current romantic partner goes off and cheats on you and every once in a while you have bruises on your arms from them holding you too tight
  • Zenyatta isn’t an intrusive man but you bet your ass that he’s going to confront you about this
  • If you really protest about it, he goes to confront the toxic person instead
  • He’ll do it when you’re nearby though, so you can hear what he has to say
  • Ex. You’re hanging out with your partner and bump into Zen; you leave to use the restroom or something and Zen and said partner are now alone but you’re still close by
  • Basically, Zen calls Toxic Asshole out on their shit
  • Calmly
  • No yelling or screaming but certainly walks right up to them so they’re almost chest-to-chest and just kind of goes off on a rant
  • Questions them as to why they do what they do to you, if they think it’s funny, if it makes them happy to be an abusive and controlling figure in a relationship, if they think it’s the way a relationship works
  • Toxic stops them right there and argues back that he wouldn’t know what a relationship was if it hit him in the face because he’s a stupid piece of metal
  • So Zen spouts off
  • “I know what it’s like to care about someone.”
  • “I know what it’s like to want to protect and take care of and spend all my time with someone.”
  • “I believe that’s what a relationship is.”
  • “What you’re trying to run is a dictatorship and that’s not how loving someone works”
  • All the while you’re just around the corner, listening in
  • Being the rat your partner is, they probably try to start a physical fight
  • Zen doesn’t fight back but he does defend himself
  • Meaning the guy probably ends up on the ground, via Zenyatta tripping him, with his arm twisted behind his back after trying to throw a punch
  • Let’s face it, Zen’s kind of sassy too; everyone knows it
  • So he’s just kind of like
  • “If you weren’t guilty, you wouldn’t have gotten mad”
  • Toxic’s getting hella fussy and screaming about how they’d have kicked his ass if they’d been in a real fight
  • So Zenyatta picks them up, turns them around, and lightly pushes them back
  • “Stay away from (Y/N) or you’ll really get to see what a fight with me is like.”
  • They’re almost ready to start a fight again so you decide to show yourself before it starts
  • Instead of grabbing you and yanking you away like they’d normally do, they just spit at you, say you’re not worth their time, and walk off
  • That’s that
  • Zenyatta apologizes for interfering but says it needed to be done
  • You can’t help but hug him, out of appreciation of his help and because of the things he said earlier
  • He’ll hug you back and gently rub your arms, specifically where your now-ex partner would leave bruises
  • C’mon, you gotta ask if he meant you
  • “Zen, do you care about me like that?”
  • If the omnic could blush, he would
  • Instead, his body just gets a little warmer
  • Might as well come out with it
  • “I do. And I couldn’t bare to watch your partner treat you as he did any longer.”
  • Tbh, he’d kiss if he could but he doesn’t exactly have lips
  • He settles for kind of an Eskimo kiss instead
  • Let the robot boy love and care for you plz, he loves you so much

Obviously such comments are disgysting but i feel like it's something cheryl should have learnt to deal with by now - i mean the excessive criticism. you yourself have said that you've seen all the remarks about her a thousand times before on a thousand different platforms. and i also do not agree with you on the "digging up past" part that you often come back to on these women. acknowledging that cheryl did a horrible thing and holding her accountable for it isn't misogynism. it's stating fact.

Oh my God. Please stop.

Death wishes on a baby?! Criticism?!

You know what the saddest part about this is? That yes, Cheryl has probably learnt how to deal with the excessive *bullying* by now. This is not the first time Cheryl has received death threats, in fact, this is now the fourth period in time that Cheryl’s name has been linked to death wishes and threats.

I’m going to address this one last time because I sincerely get so upset talking about it. Those comments aren’t only disgusting, they’re UNACCEPTABLE. Just because Cheryl has learnt to deal with it because of her status and who she is it does not mean that it is any more morally right for anyone to do this to her, her son, and Liam.

But death wish on a baby? A damn innocent child? My God, how fucked is that? Can you all, all please take a moment to put everything into context? That Freddie and Bear might grow up and see those things, these articles saying their existence or fathers were doubted? Can you believe that they might grow old and wonder what on earth they did to be hated so much?

And by the way, can you now look at this mess and ask yourself, how in the seven fucking hells can Briana and Eleanor deal with this? Imagine. Just imagine, Cheryl has been in the industry for 15 years. According to her book, which she wrote 10 years in, she still found it hard to deal with the immense hate on her personal life. 

What about these ordinary girls?! How many times do you think they have cried and cried and crumbled from the shit people here let pass as criticism? Oh my God calling someone TRASH and GARBAGE and CHERNOBYL and wishing them to die, to disappear, it’s NOT CRITICISM.  Like wake the fuck up, oh my God how many women has this fandom made feel horrible about their existence? Perrie, Danielle, Eleanor, Cheryl, Sophia, Briana, Tess, Camille?

Can you guys call it what it is? It’s woman hating!

And like, no. No you do not have the right to hold Cheryl hostage under something she did in 2003. Because she paid for it. Cheryl paid her debt, she apologized to the public, she got shit from the media and the world, she was dragged through the mud and has since then done NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING but change. She grew up.

You can hold her accountable for her mistake and you can talk about it because it’s a horrible thing, yes, but bullying her over it? Dragging her through the mud all over again? Just as an excuse to shit on her or her child or her relationship with Liam? Just to fill her Instagram comments with hate and “justice” that she has already received?

Come on, guys. If only you could rid yourselves of your little “fandom goggles” for a second and fucking empathize.

Try for just a second to look at things as an outsider.

You would see that there is no excuse for the shit that passes around here.

I'm sure you've probably addressed this before, but what do you think of the book All Yesterdays? There's a post that's been circulating about it and it looks interesting, but I don't really consider myself a dinosaur expert so for all I know it could be complete bullshit.

i’ve seen some stuff that’s in All Yesterdays, and i do really want to buy it but i never remember! but they did an All Your Yesterdays pdf book thing some time after? where they got people to submit their own ideas, and i got put in that B) i did this Ambulocetus painting: 

i think the idea of the books is amazing! there’s a huge problem of palaeoart being samey and boring, same old tropes and inaccuracies etc, so encouraging people to be creative (scientifically and within reason) and explore different ideas is absolutely invaluable to palaeontology as a whole, i really can’t praise it enough!

hi sam, i know you are no longer in potter fandom and i'm sure you've probably answered this question before back when you were, but i was wondering if you identify (or previously did) as belonging to any particular house? i feel like i know the answer to that question for most people that i follow even if they don't talk about hp at all, but i don't think i've ever seen you mention and now i have a burning curiosity.

Ehhh, I never really committed to a particular house, which probably makes me Hufflepuff. (When I said this to Knotta and Sci, they were like “You are the puffest hufflepuff ever to huffle, yes.” but they are terrible people so make of that what you will. :D)
