After Delenn dies, she passes beyond the rim. The scene we see between Sheridan and her in “The Deconstruction of Falling Stars,” where they’re in bed wondering if anyone will remember them, is actually them beyond the rim living together as energy beings forever.
Also, G’Kar and Londo not only die together but end up together in some way after they die, because that relationship is the most fascinating, moving, and tragic antagonistic friendship/slash I have ever seen, no matter if they ever kiss or not.
AND JUST WHO DO YOU THINK YOU’RE FOOLING UP AT C&C, MR. MORDEN
Ahahahaha! Morden on the bridge, one of my favorite parts of the Gathering!
#what do you want #idk a job?
Morden’s secret twin brother. Transfers somewhere else after The Gathering and never discovers his brother’s survival. Sheridan runs into him sometime after the series, has him arrested and hijinx ensue.
Alisa Beldon: “I guess I have to go.”
Jeffrey Sinclair: “Good luck.”
Alisa Beldon: “Thanks.”
BFFs don’t shake hands. BFFs gotta hug!
Swear to god I thought she was pickpocketing him in this scene. But nope, just fluffiness!
She probably was and he just never noticed until much later.
Can it be tumblr b5 canon that she took a few credits and replaced them with a picture of like……….a cutesy bunny or something?
Yes, yes it can.

Earth has become a planet of ridiculous hats, no wonder the Minbari wanted to wipe us out.
It is official, the Minbari wanted to wipe out the humans because of hat envy.
I know its been awhile, but I’ve been mulling over this one and decided to post it during my B5 rewatch.
So, why does everyone in B5 speak English?
They actually don’t.
In the future, everyone has some form of translator embedded or otherwise on their person. English is simply the default for the viewers, as it is obviously our language and that’s what the B5 command is hearing.
All the aliens could not possibly be expected to learn English just to interact, some of them don’t even have the anatomy for it.
BUT there is an exception for diplomats. A diplomat is required, by law, to speak all of the languages required for diplomacy. This is because the translators, much like today’s language translation software (think Google translate) are often prone to hilarious, and occasionally disastrous, mistranslations. The last thing you want is “We will use military force only as a last resort.” to be translated to, “Bring it on!” (which may have been a contributor to the Dilgar war ~_^).
So while most people rely on the language translators to get around on B5, G’kar, Londo, Delenn etc. do actually speak English (and Narn, and Centauri, and Minbari) in order to avoid diplomatic incidents.
Writing this out sort of solidified ideas that have been floating around in my head for the last few weeks; I’m reasonably happy with what I’ve landed on, though I’m sure it could stand some tweaking to make it better.
Basically, this isn’t so much a full head canon as it is trying to find something better than what’s given.
In “Space, Time, and the Incurable Romantic,” JMS tells us what happened with Marcus:
After Dius moved in with Delenn, John and David, they let him experience kindness and honesty which led him to stop thirsting for power. In the end, he gave up all ambition of becoming emperor of Centauri Prime and instead joined the rangers together with David.
Neroon is one of our best representatives of the passions of the Minbari warrior caste (not to mention one of the hottest Minbari ever…). He’s proud, brave, at times snarky, and fiercely, fiercely loyal. When we first meet him he’s definitely not at his best, at times almost irrationally so.
The head canon:
Neroon and Branmer were lovers, and Neroon didn’t follow Branmer’s final request because he just couldn’t let him go yet. Yes, Neroon’s decision to parade Branmer’s body around all the Minbari outposts was partially fueled by his desire to honour him as a great warrior, but he specifically tells Sinclair that his “feelings for the <I>shai alyt</I> led [him] to act improperly” (I’ve always thought this was not just about having a tantrum and threatening everyone because of the body’s disappearance, but <b>also</b> his decision to ignore Branmer’s last request.)
