Since everyone is doing intro post to their favorite skaters, what the hell. Might as well do one of my own. Many of my favorites already have introductions (and much better than this) but there is one which I haven’t found and I really wanted to do: Javier Fernandez. Many people just know him because he’s Yuzuru Hanyu’s training partner, but this guy here has an awesome story of his own.
Warning: Very, VERY, long post. Read at your own risk.
Yess Jaytim! I love the way you write them. As for prompt, maybe where Tim is the new intern at Research and development and has to deal with Jason always messing with his gadgets? Please and thank you!
Tim’s not a native Gothamite. The fact that he was born in the city meant nothing when his parents whisked him away to the other side of the country to be raised. Which is a tragedy because it means that Tim is sorely lacking in certain areas that all people raised here seem to just get without having to have it explained to them. Like the sixth sense that thins a busy street down to almost being deserted minutes before a bank gets blown up, or the way that most people know when it’s safe to drink water from the tap and when it’s been laced with Fear Toxin or Joker Venom. Basic survival things that Tim doesn’t have because he might’ve been born in Gotham, but he wasn’t raised here among it’s craziness.
Maybe if he had any of that instinct he’d be able to figure out why a dangerous vigilante, one of the more violent ones no less, is being allowed free access to Wayne Tech’s R&D floor. There was no other way of describing it. Security is pretty tight on the levels Tim works in, and while that might not deter some of the masked people that flood the city the fact that Batman –and most of his associates– like to show up randomly to patrol his sponsor’s business is. Considering the fact that most of what Tim works on goes to them he’s under no delusions that his every move isn’t monitored. So Red Hood’s appearances can’t have gone unnoticed.
“Huh,” Red Hood looks down at the pile of parts and circuits that lay heaped on the floor. Lips twisting up into a smirk Tim wishes he could wipe off. With his fist if possible, though some days Hood is nice enough that Tim wonders about using other parts of his body instead. Not tonight though. “Was it supposed to do that?”
“That took me seven hours to assemble,” Tim says as a deceptively calm peace settles over him as he stares at what was an entire days work. No, three days, because Tim had been very meticulous about cleaning each part of the intricate mechanism beforehand.
“Oops?” Hood says in a tone that’s more innocent than any man wearing body armor and blood stained boots should be able to vocalize. He looks back down at the pile, nudging it with the toe of his boot and leaving behind a suspicious smear. Tim watches in wonder as all that calm peace evaporates at the smarmy grin Hood gives him. “Well, whatever it was, it obviously wasn’t going to work anyway-”
Screwdrivers are not designed to be aeronautical, and that’s the only reason why Tim’s throw falls short of its target. Hood doesn’t even flinch or act like he was going to dodge it. “Because I wasn’t finished screwing the back on!”
The smarmy grin twists into something gleeful, “If you’re going to screw anything, it should be-”
Tim goes for the fire extinguisher like he should’ve the second he heard the crash of something breaking. Hood actually moves then, though the laughter that fills the lab echoes mockingly as Tim furiously chases after the dangerous –supposedly psychotic– vigilante that’s been making his life hell from the first day he was hired.
Rey has worked with metal parts and mechanics her entire life. On Jakku, waste was not allowed : everything, up to the tiniest scrap of metal, was to be either sold or turned into something useful so that she could ensure her survival. But here, at the Resistance… she finds that some damaged or outdated circuits and ship parts are simply put aside or thrown away, no one having any use for it. And as the scavenger she is, she can’t resist taking all of it and putting it in her room. All this waste is unbearable ! There has to be something she can do with all that.
At first, she tries to build tools and circuits out of it, but the scraps are really beyond any use - even her mechanical genius can’t turn them into something functional. So, frustrated and a little bored, she starts playing with the metal rods, tweaking and curving them, using the blowtorch to fuse them together. She finds that the activity relaxes her, and when she’s done she realizes she has made a sculpture. A tiny metal sculpture looking like a sunflower turned toward the sky. Rey loves it so much that she starts working on a second one, a tulip this time. This one turns out to be prettier and more elegant than the first, probably because she knew what she was doing this time. When she’s done, Rey scoops up her sculptures in her hands and runs toward the shooting range, eager to show her work to Finn.
She finds him hitting perfectly target after target with his blaster, and she stays put for a little while, admiring the focused and determined look on his face. Eventually, Finn notices her and puts down his blaster.
“Hey, what’s up ?” he asks, putting an arm around her shoulder and kissing her forehead. Rey leans into his warm touch.
“I wanted to show you something I made,” she says, suddenly self-conscious.
She knows that Finn would never laugh at her work, but showing it to him still makes her feel weirdly exposed and vulnerable. She trusts him with her heart and her life, though, so she puts the tiny sculptures in his hand. Finn carefully looks at them, delicately turning them between his fingers, and then his face lights up with wonder.
“You made these ? That’s amazing ! They are really beautiful. I didn’t know you liked art.”
“I didnt know either until now,” Rey blushes under the compliments. “I never had the luxury of making something whose final purpose was to be beautiful and not functional. But.. i like it.”
Finn nods and stays silent, then a secretive smile stretches his lips.
“Come on,” he says, offering his hand. “I also want to show you something.”
Rey takes his hand and follows him to his room, intrigued.
“Is this an elaborate plan to get me naked, Finn ? Because you could have just asked,” Rey teases with a wink.
Finn laughs wholeheartedly, then shakes his head with an amused smile.
“That is a very attractive prospect, but I actually do have something to show you.”
Rey watches him open a drawer in his desk, and pull out stacks of paper. She realizes these are drawings and paintings. Finn seems a little embarassed, but allows her to browse through his artworks. He’s made colourful watercolors of landscapes and starry nights, and pencil sketches of droids and various people. There are a lot of sketches of Rey sleeping or working on her ship, and she smiles while wondering how she never caught him drawing her. Some other paintings are more abstract, looking like an attempt to depict an elusive memory.
“Finn, all of these are gorgeous ! I can’t believe you’re only telling me about this now,” she says while admiring a little painting of Takodana’s lush forest.
“Yeah, I know. I started sketching when I was still bound to bed, it was helping a lot with my frustration and boredom, and I ended up really liking it. I didn’t really hide it from you though, it just didn’t seem worth mentioning. Also,” he adds with a chuckle, “I kinda like drawing you when you’re not paying attention.”
Rey playfully smacks his arm, then puts her arms around his waist and her head on his shoulder. Finn squeezes her in his arms and she sighs, content. She couldn’t imagine a better place to be than Finn’s arms.
Wow, lucky you! I’m so envious, haha. Back when I was a kid and had a ton of robotic animals I would never have been allowed to do something like this even if I tried. I need to go to a Goodwill or thrift store sometime and find some old, inexpensive animatronic toys to tinker around with and to take the fur off of and explore the circuits and wire parts underneath.
Request by anon: Could I request a Dean Winchester one-shot were the
reader has short hair (like boy short) and totally has a crush on Dean but he
always makes jokes about the shortness of your hair and about Sam’s being
longer than yours but one day he makes you get so angry with him and the
agreement escalates but he ends up crashing your lips against his and pushes
you against the wall. All that time, he found it really hot.
“Hey, Goldilocks! Get in here. Sam found us a case,” Dean
called, his voice echoing through the bunker.
You’d been wondering when he would land on Goldilocks as his
name of the day. Rapunzel had been the first. That one had lasted a whole week.
The nickname that lasted the least amount of time had been Samson, from the
bible. It just got too confusing for Dean with Sam around as well, so he gave
up on that one a few hours after he started.
“Where’s this one?” you asked, not acknowledging the new
name. Dean’s eyes lit up when you walked in the room without comment and you
knew this one was gonna stick for a while. You just wished his eyes lit up for
a different reason when you entered the room.
Some more Danger Days/Killjoys headcanons and theories I have!
Besides The Graffiti bible, there is no such thing as fictional books or stories in Bat City, BLI thinks any type of fictional literature can trigger emotions and ‘inspire’ citizens
Blue is a failed prototype humanoid hybrid, she was a human who had robotic parts and circuits surgically placed into her so she could be connected to a larger droid and used as a weapon, however the experiment went wrong when Blue escaped and her memories were erased and Destroya was scrapped, which is why she was able to reactivate it
The sword The Girl has in the last issue is actually the head of BLI’s sword that Cherri Cola managed to steal
Korse’s boyfriend’s name is Carlos, idk why I just see it
When BLI first began, they actually had droid Dracs but later began using humans, as they don’t need to be built, Korse was one of the first human Dracs
Kobra Kid is trans
Val Velocity used to neighbors/friends with Party Poison and Kobra Kid in Bat City, when they left Party promised to come back for Val but when he never did and found out about The Girl, Val began to hate him
Killjoys would use Drac’s bulletproof vests as binders
The trans am used to belong to Korse until Fun Ghoul and Jet Star stole it for a joy ride
The most expensive/rare food in Bat City and The Desert is chocolate, since chocolate releases endorphins, BLI rarely makes/distributes it
Show Pony is Fun Ghoul’s cousin
Before they discovered hair dye, having long and crazy hair was a way to represent freedom and Jet Star’s and The Girl’s fro was extremely admired
McLaren 12C “The Perfect Line” At Yas Marina Circuit Video
“As part of a major Middle Eastern push by British automakers, Abu Dhabi is getting a spiffy new factory McLaren dealership. To celebrate, McLaren has published “The Perfect Line” a video of their race-ready MP4-12C supercar blasting the nearby dune circuit at Yas Marina. The 592 horsepower, 3.8L.. ”
Advanced Flooring Turns Whole Rooms Into Touchscreens For Monitoring Movement
by Michael Keller
Growing older comes with a few nice things. Knowledge evolves into wisdom. Context informs perspective. A long life’s ups and downs are woven into a rich tapestry of memories.
But it also comes with a number of consequences that almost everyone would just as soon avoid. Footing becomes unsure. Bones grow fragile. A task as simple as rising from bed or navigating a room becomes fraught with danger when a fall could mean a broken hip or being unable to get up again.
Such a fall is among the great fears of caretakers, whether it’s a relative or a nursing home. What if no one is home when the accident happens? How will a nurse know if the injured person has tumbled to the ground on the far side of the bed?
A German startup is offering a high-tech monitoring system for this problem, which is set to grow more urgent as the developed world begins dealing with a spike in senior citizens. The company has developed an advanced, conductive textile floor covering they call SensFloor that detects when people are walking or lying on it. The innovation is already alerting European nursing homes when a senior has fallen.
“The floor is the best place to discover what a person is doing,” says Axel Steinhage, research and development director of Future-Shape. “Except when you’re sleeping, you’re always in contact with this surface called the floor. I feel it’s strange that people don’t use this surface for more sensor information input.”
@peillimoops said:Hey got an olicity prompt. Soul mates can see what is written on the others skin. Do felicitous is drawing circuit boards and computer parts and code. Whilst laurel is writing her name on lovers arm and Tommy is messing with Oliver. You can change anything if you want. I just really like this idea. 💙💙💙
It starts off innocent enough. Laurel just wants to know if they are each other’s soul mates before she goes any farther with him. He agrees because Laurel Lance is hot and he’s not going to turn down the opportunity to possibly get into her pants. So she takes out a Sharpie and writes her name on Oliver’s forearm, but nothing happens. When he offers to double check her entire body for an identical mark, she agrees and Oliver is pretty sure he now knows what heaven tastes like. Tommy is right. Sex is better than drugs.
At 16 years old, he could care less about the idea of soul mates. The only thing that matters is the amazing escape he feels every time Laurel lets him bury his pain by burying himself in her. So he doesn’t think twice about letting her write her name all over his body each time they have sex. After all, if it’s what Laurel feels she need to feel comfortable, who is he to deny her?
This is a commission for manorabrucelee, who wanted a band AU + Steve and Tony quitting the band to start a family. This rolls in at 5k :)
are you all doing tonight?” Tony screamed into the microphone, and
grinned helplessly as thousands of people screamed back at him.
arena was packed out. As far as he had been told, nobody had sold
this many tickets since the Beatles; The Avengers were officially the
voice of a whole generation.
hadn’t always been like this, though. Once upon a time, Tony was
supposed to take over his father’s weapons company. He had been just
out of MIT, bumming around New England and trying to put off the
inevitable, when he had wandered into a bar one evening and heard the
most amazing sound coming from the in-house guitarist there. He’d
listened to the whole set, bought one of the guy’s CDs afterwards,
too, and they’d got to talking.
was an all-round artist. He could play the piano as well as the
guitar, sing, and was amazing with a paintbrush. He was well educated
in history and the arts, and was a sarcastic little shit to boot.
had immediately imprinted on him like a newborn duckling.
introduced him to some of his friends, Natasha, Clint and Thor, who
Tony found out soon enough were also musically inclined. Tony,
himself, could play classical piano, though he hadn’t practised in
years, and secretly prided himself on his gritty voice; together,
they were a match made in heaven.
what do think the moment was when karkat first realized he was in love.
ha ha ha WELLLL, this isn’t EXACTLY this but it’s the moment he accepts he has a crush on him… I had this sitting on my hard drive as part of a longform meteor fic that I’m definitely never going to write so
(davekat stuff in can town on the meteor, about 700 words, no content warnings haha)
Jupiter's moon Europa may be more Earth-like than we thought
It may be lacking volcanic hydrothermal activity, but Jupiter’s moon Europa’s ocean may have an Earth-like chemical balance that could sustain life, suggests a new study.
Europa is strongly believed to hide a deep ocean of salty liquid water beneath its icy shell. Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) compared the ocean’s potential for producing hydrogen and oxygen with that of Earth, through processes that do not directly involve volcanism. The balance of these two elements is a key indicator of the energy available for life.
So I realized I actually really like making masterposts so here is my TV show one, please feel free to message me if any of the links won’t work, and i’ll be happy to get you a working one! I have other masterposts here so feel free to use those too. You can use this masterpost or any of these links in your own! <3
