Last seen struggling to find employment in our capitalist society, writing, knitting, and RP-ing.

Just a tiny bit obsessed with this movie about giant robots punching giant monsters in the face.

Getting a lot of ideas for fics other than the one you should be working on.


EXACTLY!!! if any one in that scene actually finds k-sci amusing, it was raleigh! mako looks like she wants to take lady danger’s sword to something; stacker looks like “fml” which is his ETERNAL face around them two of them. raleigh is like HEUEHUEHUEH nerds, gotta pick on nerds, LIKE NOT EVEN IN A JOCK WAY but like the big dumb golden retriever he is XD one that is constantly trying to goad you into overreacting? yup. once he realized it was so easy to make newt blow his top i bet he does it alllllll the time XD i know - i blow my top easily and the raleigh/little brother-esque people in my life do it for fun because it is admittedly funny xDD 

Stacker “I have a very important operation running here can you stop bickering for like FIVE SECONDS” Pentecost

Exactly. I imagine he teases basically everyone he knows with varying degrees of either “button-pushing” or “just friendly ribbing.” I’m actually working on a longer fic where a good portion of Raleigh’s interactions with Newt are Raleigh being a little shit and Newt failing at keeping his cool. Only slightly less shrieking this time, and a great deal more awareness that his buttons are being pushed. Which makes it even worse. “I know I’m being baited but I can’t stOP GETTING ANGRY AT THIS STUPID RANGER”.

Like I said, my headcanons for a Mako and Newt relationship are still a work in progress. It’s kind of complicated because let’s be real, Newt is annoying, Newt can be alienating, I love him, but he’s like a live wire of emotions. And while I like the idea of him having met her briefly when she was younger and they were weird sort of pals (also part of the Only Child To A Single Dad club), I don’t think she kids herself about Newt being anything but hotheaded and occasionally embarrassing. So it’s like, “I appreciate your work and that you were/are nice to me, but seriously, dude, tone it down.”

Which is probably how everyone views Newt, tbh. Even the people who LIKE him have to tell him to cool his jets.

Yes, pleeze, and when are you finishing The Emotional Heinlich, dang it!?

I KNOW, I’M SORRY, I have one chapter left and I quit on everyone. I will finish it, honest, I’m having a hard time with the Alison chapter. It’s a bit harder to write her because she’s not in the movie or anything, so I have to make up everything from scratch, and when you add in things like “timeline weirdness” and “characterization weirdness” (I’m still trying to wrap my head around her one canon mention in the film and what it means about how their early relationship worked) and “wanting her to be more dynamic than just the wife with the kid off somewhere in the sidelines but having to jump through hoops for THAT THANKS BEACHAM (I mean what)”, it just complicates the hell out of things. I will finish it, one day, I swear.



so im babysitting this girl right now and we’re watching tv and the satellite sort of cut out cause it was raining really hard
so i just said “thunder god if you give back our satellite i’ll give you ice cream”
a second later the thunder clapped again and our tv came back
the girl is forcing me to hold up my end of the deal so guess who’s making ice cream for the thunder god

Oh man, It’s been certainly awhile, I didn’t think I would miss this, but time has proved me wrong.

There’s a lot of these graphics which stayed in my mind for a long, long time, therefore, it appears that my contribution to DCwT hasn’t finished yet.

I need to write that drabble idea I had of Mako talking to Newt after the elevator conversation, it’s too much of a chance to explore some of my headcanons for Mako and Newt’s relationship and also some of my headcanons about Raleigh.

Sees Kaiju dung for the first time, takes off glasses.

"Now that is one big pile of shit."

Jurassic Park is on AMC and now I’m just wondering how many times Newt has managed to reference this movie during his time in the PPDC.
