adapt canon. twist canon. pick up the story and drop it in another place, another time. rethink gender, sexuality, race. cut open a little hole in another universe and push the story inside. retcon the ending, switch up the genre, make it tragic, make it happily-ever-after. knock the characters out of moral alignment. debunk stereotypes, subvert tropes. kidnap and liberate the story from oppressors.

The Straight Agenda.


It’s funny how conservatives are always going on about the “gay agenda,” when it’s the straight people that have an agenda. Seriously. The straight agenda starts brainwashing kids from birth, putting boy-babies in blue clothes and girl-babies in pink clothes, deciding which toys they get to play with and which school subjects they “ought” to be good at, and backing that up with millions of dollars worth of advertising as the children grow up, reinforced by constant brainwashing by their own families.

Not to mention unfair and uneven media representation, showing unrealistically uniform heterosexual casts and hardly any homosexual/bisexual/trans/queer/ace/pan protagonists, discouraging young adults from exploring their queerness because it clearly isn’t the done thing. In fact, it’s a horrible sin, because most religious leaders from multiple religions are anti-queer, and are happy to fill the airwaves with queerphobic hate. The same thing goes for most political leaders and “pillars” of the community.

The straight agenda makes it acceptable for someone to joke about another person’s baby daughter by saying: “Oh, she’s a pretty one! You’re gonna have to fight the boys off with a stick once she’s in her teens!” As if that’s okay and not sexualizing a child before it can even talk, but if that same girl becomes an adult and tries coming out as a bisexual at the age of eighteen, she’s way too young to understand her own sexuality and must have been “corrupted” or “misled”.

A twelve-year-old boy and a girl are called “cute” when they hold hands, but if two boys do the same, they’re told they’re being “too gay”. A man who forces his attentions on a woman is condemned less than a gay man who only wants to marry his loving, committed life-partner. In fact, the assaulter is often lauded for being “manly” and is considered to be following his “natural” heterosexual urges, whereas the gay couple is considered “freakish” and “undermining moral and cultural values”.

In many cities, a lesbian couple can’t kiss on the street without being insulted, harassed or treated as though their relationship is pornographic entertainment for the titillation of straight men, but the same straight men can verbally or physically abuse their wives in public without anyone saying a word.

In many schools, a boy can bully and beat another boy without teachers speaking out against his bullying, but a boy can’t take another boy to the prom without teachers telling him it’s not allowed.

A heterosexual rape scene with a man raping a woman sparks less controversy among moviegoing audiences than a consensual homosexual kiss between men. Because obviously, the objectification and brutalization of women is more normal and tolerable than “twisted fags” daring to kiss each other consensually.

A straight male mass-shooter who uses the excuse of having been turned down by women as a reason to kill other people is given more sympathetic media coverage than an innocent trans woman who is the victim of a violent hate crime.

And it’s the gay agenda that’s doing damage to society? Really? Who exactly has the agenda, here? The straight agenda does its best to convince queer people that they’re unnatural, sinful, shameful, broken, dangerous, doomed or just downright undeserving of life, let alone basic rights. The straight agenda has most major media organizations, religious establishments and politicians backing them up and helping them spread their message.

And what does the so-called “gay agenda” have? People that want to get married? Wow. That’s so damaging to society.

guys guys have we done Shakespearean Jaeger copilots yet because i mean

Macbeth and Banquo are star copilots until Banquo gets killed- surprisingly while off duty, not during a fight- and Lady Macbeth immediately goes ‘PUT ME IN THE ROBOT’

Viola and Sebastian’s Jaeger gets torn apart by a kaiju four miles off the coast and even though they both somehow survive, they get separated and Sebastian is lost for months. and meanwhile Viola discovers she and Orsino might be drift compatible?

Beatrice and Benedick discover they are definitely drift compatible and they’re both really annoyed about it

Brutus and Cassius are probably drift compatible

so are Coriolanus and Aufidius but they probably beat the shit out of each other in training. yknow, for funsies

Lear was one of the Mark 1 pilots, probably with Kent, but something went wrong with the neural load and Lear can’t really fight so much anymore. Sometimes he runs simulators with Cordelia so she can train tho (she never becomes a pilot but she does end up running a lot of the PPDC’s political business)

Hal and Hotspur have a really antagonistic rival-type relationship a la Chuck and Raleigh- Hotspur pilots a Mark 5 (with Kate, natch) and they’ve taken down like eleven kaiju and everyone thinks they’re hot shit. meanwhile Hal spends half his time drinking in the shatterdome cafeteria with his copilot Falstaff and no one really knows why they’re still in the program, and meanwhile Henry (probably an ex-Mark 1 or 2 pilot) doesn’t understand why he and his son aren’t drift compatible

Othello is probably running the shatterdome, lbr, and Prospero is head of research. Miranda interns in k-science but she sneaks off to train with Ferdinand on the regular

(bonus points: Hamlet and Horatio as science husbands, because can’t you just see Hamlet with a bunch of tattoos going ‘but what if we could TALK to the kaiju’ and poor beleaguered Horatio just like ‘fuck’s sake Hamlet we are supposed to be scientists can we please do some math’)

((bonus point: Hamlet sits around at home unable to commit to a course of action, is promptly killed in a kaiju attack, and Horatio and Ophelia are sad for a little while then go on to be the best science besties ever.))

asdfghjk wait I’m going to jump on this bandwagon even though I’ve still never seen Pacific Rim

Rosalind and Celia are perfect co-pilots and then Orlando shows up and Rosalind volunteers to train with him, but through some bureaucratic error she somehow manages to get herself signed up with him under her middle name and so she’s pulling double duty as Rosalind with Celia and Ganymede with Orlando and she loves it but Celia’s afraid she’s gonna burn herself out (and possibly a little jealous until she meets Oliver working with Touchstone in the k-science division)

Romeo desperately wants to be drift-compatible with someone, even if he never gets to actually get in the Jaeger, and Rosaline is a training coach or something and she is so sick of him asking and the day when k-scientist Tybalt’s little cousin arrives in the shatterdome sh e immediately takes a shine to Romeo and they’re both thrilled to discover they’re drift-compatible, even though all they will be doing for a long time is training together

Ariel as Prospero’s sassy, slightly crazy JARVIS-type A.I. that nobody else can operate (and has a tendency to float up out of the computer in little tangible streamers of code because it’s claustrophobic)

princehal9000 has written two fics on this subject and they are fucking fantastic

Brutus and Cassius are DEFINITELY drift compatible. They also pilot with Portia from time to time. Mark Antony pilots a Jaegar with Cleopatra called Romulus Alexandria and they make the entire Shatterdome intensely uncomfortable by making out everywhere, all the time. Paulina co-pilots with Antigonus until he’s killed in action and she starts co-piloting with Hermione in a Jaegar they call The Faith Awakener.  Richard Gloucester finds that he’s drift compatible with Margaret Anjou and they’re both furious about it.  

Titania and Oberon are only drift compatible when one of them is high, which for a reason no one seems to understand, doesn’t hinder their performance at all.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are so perfectly compatible it makes people uncomfortable. They don’t pilot together anymore, but they still respond interchangeably to the other’s name when you try to get their attention.

Antonio and Sebastian are compatible, and while Viola was healing from the crash, they piloted together seamlessly. Now that Viola’s back in their jaeger, though, they don’t practice together anymore. Antonio isn’t taking it too well.

Puck works on the repair crew in the shatterdome. They’re not technically on the payroll (how’d they even get in here??) but they’re fascinated by absolutely anything that glows or beeps.

or what if Rosencrantz and Guildenstern were in the first round of Jaegers and neural handshake tests and something went a little wrong with the neural load and they both just got overloaded with each other and THAT’s why they’re sort of interchangeable???
