1. oh hey it’s me and my embarrassing KI. Pre-Cyan pic ‘cause Relto isn’t double-signed *dreamy sigh*
2. spot the differences. Yeah I know. Rivenchan’s belt is prettier, sloppy work for John Keston.
3. this looks like hologram Esher in Riven and it’s making my brain go ‘bwuh’ just trying to imagine how. Intriguing, though.
4. stop the press that’s a nice pic?? Thanks photographer!
6. yes. *waves to the lovely people in the background*
7. I didn’t know how much I needed Yeesha mending fences with an older Saavedro until it happened. Now I’m not saying it could be a Yuletide prompt but
The 1st day of every month is now Polyshipping day. To improve the amount of positive portrayals of OT3+es in fandom, let’s make some content of some kind! Fic, art, even just sketches or rapidfire short prompts about various pairings. Resolve love triangles “the right way”. Portray massive polyamorous cuddle piles of people who all love each other. Platonic threesomes where all partners feel important and it’s not trashy male gaze MFF “the girls just wanna please their man” crap.
Create content, spread the news, show your love. Anything, I guess. Let’s get this going monthly and show our polyships, which let’s face it, never get enough attention, some much-needed love.
Signal Boost! It’s nearly the end of the first for me but I’ll try to put some stuff together for you people in the past tomorrow.
oh my godddd i want to do this
*RIPS OFF SHIRT* DID SOMEONE SAY OT3 Day?!
Some ridiculously OOC screenshots from last night. Noted Cyclone Squad trooper Ishev hosts a Coruscant party and hangs out with Senator Loren Fidelis Luz and Jedi Ellekai. Somehow people wind up naked in a hot tub, lounging naked on an Alderaanian throne, and bound up while Ishev lords over them.
(Is this real, or someone’s subconscious fever-fantasies?)
A large part of my adult, career-related life has been lived by Susan Ivanova’s examples and wisdom.
Oh man. MAN. Man. Lemme tell you about Susan Ivanova.
Susan Ivanova, second in command of Babylon 5, has been through a lot of shit. First, off, Babylon 5 is a deliberate melting pot of a place where. after a really bad war, different species can come to seek peace. Earthgov is skeptical about it. The other species governments are skeptical about it. As a result, the station often stands between the universe and very bad shit going down.
Commander Ivanova is in charge of operations. All the day to day stuff. She handles it pretty well.
She is not here to put up with anyone’s shit. Not even if you’re from Earth.
She’s second in command of a station with captains that are perpetually putting themselves and the station through a lot of political… well, ugly politics. She’s often the one left behind, having to tell folks the Captain is not available and she’s in charge. Honestly, for having to be the grownup among so many damned children, she’s very well liked.
She’s not all business, though, she’s a great friend as well as commander, with a lovely, dry, gallows sense of humor. I’m not sure there’s a person on the station who doesn’t have a private joke or at least a friendly word with her (provided they’re not fucking up her schedule).
Her family is Russian and Jewish, and it actually comes up from time to time. She occasionally sends a shout out to god (she’s not practicing, iirc, but she still identifies as Jewish and keeps a few traditions), She commentates often on her Russian heritage.
Susan Ivanova: I know, I know. It’s a Russian thing. When we’re about to do something stupid, we like to catalog the full extent of our stupidity for future reference.
She meets up with family and friends from her past and doesn’t shy away from them:
Lt. Cmdr. Susan Ivanova: So how are things back home?
Rabbi Koslov: They change, they stay the same. Russia is Russia. Your father used to say: “If regret could be harvested, Russia would be the world’s fruit basket.”
She had a rough time growing up - her mother was a telepath, and in this universe if you’re telepathic and human you have two options: join a quasi-militaristic organization called the PsiCorps that will immediately take you from your family and control your whole life (they even have a saying: the Corps is Mother. The Corps is Father. It’s as chilling as you think,); option two is to take some drugs that suppress your abilities. Ivanova’s mother chose the second option, and after a long, ugly period suffering under the effects of the drug, she took her own life.
You can imagine Susan is not thrilled with anyone associated with the Psicorps. But when a Psicorps telepath named Talia Winters comes on board, some interesting things happen.
But then, eventually, Susan doesn’t mind her so much.
Talia reaches out, and turns up at Susan’s quarters late one night.
They actually become real friends.
And then, when Talia is gone she confesses:
Susan also later falls in love with a man named Marcus Cole, which means for my money she’s the first bisexual lady in space that I ever saw on TV. Possibly ever.
For all that though, for her friendships and lovely jokes and cuddly-as-a-cactus-flower appeal, they never ever forget how good she is at her job. She is shatteringly competent.
The whole crew is in on the airlocking thing, really. They support her airlocking habits. It’s lovely of them to do.
Commander Susan Ivanova, bisexual Russian Jewish space princess of my heart. Forever. Watch this show.
Auriva sends Tiona the following text: “I want to find a quiet waterfall somewhere where no one can see us and then have sex out there.”
Sehavi about Sukhera: “The first time we met, I wanted to go down on you, right there in the cantina, under the table.”
Sehavi re: Sukhera: “I love running my fingers over the ridges on your head while you go down on me.”
Ishev, on a certain Corellian Senator - “I have occasionally entertained fleeting romantic feelings about him, but would never confess to it.”
Please, only if they’ve at least seen each other or we know OOCly that they have. These are hard for complete strangers. D:
Have I ever mentioned how much I love her?
-Eskath was pregnant when her husband died. She was grieving and not really in a good headspace, and agreed to let Intelligence to poke and prod at the fetus. She gets progress updates that the girl is well, but that’s all. Her other children were raised by her husband’s sister so she could go do other things.
-Eskath’s husband apparently had a lot of outside of the Empire contacts and that network passed on to her. Most of them respect her and are useful. In another world, she could have joined up with one of them and been a bounty hunter.
-Sehavi has mostly gotten over the stigma of being Forceless, but at events with lots of ‘proper’ Purebloods sometimes the jealousy and shame rises. If there was a chance at giving her what she feels she deserves, like an arcane ritual or a device like on that one planet in the SI story, she’d be first in line to volunteer.
Dakhri would invade the Empire on her own in a stolen ship if either of her children sent the recall order. (She wouldn’t have to, she has friends and allies - but that desire to burn the world down to get back what is hers is what makes her terrifying, and too much attachment to make her comfortable in the standard Jedi Order.)
KAY YOU STILL HAVEN’T GOT YOUR FIRST TROOPER PAST TATOOINE YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ROLL A NEW ONE BECAUSE YOU WOUND UP WITH A GOOD FACE IN CC
HEY DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS FOR YOUR MASSANI TROOPER
BECAUSE DAKHRI’S EX HUSBAND WAS A TROOPER
