Think about Jennifer being so hypnotized by the idea of Will’s friend group. Like, they’re all marginalized and cast off and they found each other, and it’s amazing to her that they’re all of respectful and understanding to an extent, and she just… Doesn’t have that? Because she hangs out with catty people, people who throw you out as soon as you don’t wear the correct thing, or don’t talk to you if you don’t completely agree with them. And so one day will just invites Jenny to come with the rest of the guys while they’re all chilling, and they end up going to the woods and sitting out there for an hour or so. And the whole time, Jennifer is just like so entranced by how they talk to each other, slightly teasing but never crossing over lines, and how the interact, so genuinely interested in the others, because despite how different their specialities are, they’re still great friends. Lucas, with outdoors and survival tactics, and Dustin, who loves making others smile and choose-your-own adventure novels, and Mike, science fiction and Stephen King junkie extraordinaire. And, of course, Will, resident artist and fantasy nerd. They all, to steal a phrase from the King of horror himself, fit perfectly against each other’s edges, clicking into place like a jigsaw puzzle. They truly were, Mike will reflect on later in his life, Hawkins’s own Losers Club. And then there’s Jennifer. Prim, proper Jennifer, who goes to church every Sunday and never crosses lines, now hanging out with this gaggle of boys for the day, and she feels she fits in better with them than anyone she’s ever met. Because they care. If one boy falls, they’ll all laugh and then race each other to see who can reach him fastest. When Will’s bike tire pops, they simply find some rope and tie it to a tree for later, despite Lucas’s criticisms of the safety of that plan, and Will rides double with Mike. So Jennifer feels out of place at first, as any fifth-wheeler would in the presence of such an intense bond, but she realizes that these boys just want to be respected. They eye her suspiciously earlier on, sure, but when her knees get skinned while she’s running after Chester (Will’s dog) with Dustin, they all apologize and promise to give her some candy later. A childish gesture, but a well-meaning one. And when Will asks her nervously how he liked them, since he knows they’re a little awkward and a lot dorky, she just smiles and says, “you’re so lucky.” Will nods in agreement. He really is, in that respect. And the Hawkins Losers Club is lucky to have him, too.
Zoom: I always win, Flash. I’M the fastest man on a bike! *pedals away furiously*
The entire plotline revolves around Zoom trying to steal Barry’s bike. Barry gets progressively more delusional and keeps thinking he can time travel and that there are people crossing over from parallel universes but the whole time he’s on a fucking bike
John Ryland and @classifiedmoto are back — with their fastest and most extreme bike ever. Based on a 2013 Suzuki GSX-R1000, this urban assault machine now prowls the back roads of Oahu, Hawaii.

Headcanons for the Revolutionary Set playing Mario Kart
Hamilton always plays as a mii, because he’s “just that handsome”. (Mulligan always makes sure his mii is the correct size- very small- before he plays.) He always picks the fastest bike he can, and is extremely competitive, in fact a tense race is one of the few things that can shut him up. When he’s not playing, though, he will not stop giving advice/narrating to the other racers.
Burr does not have a character he chooses regularly, he switches between several (but his favorite is actually Baby Daisy). He’s the kind of player who will hold a banana behind him for protection for as long as possible, rather than dropping it and picking up a new item. When he falls behind, he hopes for the powerful items to bring him back to the front, but sometimes that backfires on him.
(A large section of the itemized list of disagreements is A. Ham’s list of “Burr hit me with a blue shell when I was almost at the finish line!!! Burr saved his red shell to hit me specifically, and I fell off a ditch!!! I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT BURR BEAT ME ON MOO MOO MEADOWS HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE.”)
Laurens plays as Koopa Troopa, and he is almost always shouting at the screen. His favorite items are red shells and invincibility stars. He wants to win, but more than that he wants to beat up his opponents. His favorite course is Rainbow Road just on principle.
Mulligan likes playing as Toad. He’s one of those ones who you don’t see during the race until the end when he’s ended up placing in the top three and everyone’s like how?????? He’s crazy good at Ghost Valley 3 for some reason. It’s also his game, so he can threaten restrict access to anyone who starts getting too intense.
Lafayette picks Peach every time, unless someone else wants to be her in which case they will graciously concede the character. They enjoy playing online when they can race against Adrienne, their girlfriend back in France. When they’re playing with their boyfriends in America, they enjoy sitting on them and gaining advantage that way.
Eliza prefers playing as Yoshi. She’s usually in the middle ranks, placing between 4th and 6th. She steers well but tends to have bad luck with items, and she’s not as vicious as, say, Hamilton or Laurens or Angelica. She picks Karts over bikes, and that gives her an advantage when it comes to not being knocked off the course.
Angelica plays as Rosalina most often, and she is just as competitive as Hamilton and Laurens. Except when she’s racing Eliza- then they’re on an unofficial, unspoken team and will not attack each other, instead focusing all their attention on their other opponents. Like Lafayette, she will sit on people if it gives her an advantage.
Peggy is almost always Bowser. Ze likes running people off the road almost as much as Laurens does. This might be revenge for being the youngest and, for a short while, underestimated, but it’s also just really fun. Ze and Laurens will sometimes team up if they’re playing together to make everyone else’s lives miserable.
Jefferson isn’t invited over, but whenever Waluigi shows up as an NPC the gang calls him Thomas and makes a special point of trying to get him in last place. (Burr doesn’t really do this, or at least, he says he doesn’t.)
The next chapter is going to get intense. Hope you all enjoy :)
WARNINGS: Language, Violence, Blood
could a day start so good and turn so bad in only a few hours? Happy
would never understand how shit happens so fast because that’s how it
around ten and there was a party going on at the club, Happy sitting
on the couch talking to his brothers with a baby monitor in his hand
as his daughter slept in his dorm room. He always slept at the club
when there were parties just in case he felt like drinking then there
were people there to help just in case, plus her room wasn’t done
Hap Natasha’s crying but the door’s locked.” Half-Sack said getting
everyone’s attention. “Look like she’s up.” Tig chuckled.
leaned forward slowly, “What?” Half-Sack pointed behind himself,
“I heard her screamin’ so I figured I’d just go put her bo-bo in
her mouth but the door was locked.”
Happy said as he stood up quickly, “I didn’t lock the damn door.”
THE FASTEST ELECTRIC BIKE: THE BLACKTRAIL
PG Bikes has unveiled the fastest electric bike the market has to offer, the new Blacktrail. At a weight of 44 pounds, the E-bike hits maximum speeds between 25 and 65mph. The Blacktrail incorporates a special kind of movement, a carbon fiber electric bike. High-quality materials like carbon fiber, high alloy aluminum and leather are combined and are presented in an extravagant design. The e-bike has sufficient reserves of power to move through the city or country fast and with little effort. On top the Blacktrain is a stylish eye-catcher, because of the avant-garde design the bike is the roadster between all two-wheelers and there are only 667 of these exquisite bikes in the world.
This is pretty boss. I really dig the way this looks, which surprises me.
I am a triathlete! Admittedly, this “mini” was equivalent to a supersprint with a shorter swim (250 yards + 10K bike + 2mi run). Still long enough for me as a first-timer to get my feet wet (ha!) and feel like I accomplished something.
