garage projects

anonymous asked:

Remember that message about Wildfire dying? Some things that happen after that: Starfire cannot stand the sight of Beast Boy anymore, because he reminds her too much of Wildfire, she starts being even more upset when any other Titan gets hurt, when one of Punk Rockets robots sent Robin crashing into a building she literally broke his arm in several places, and sleeps with a crudely drawn picture of her family she drew when she was small

Why do you do this to me?

Okay well, anon apparently wants feels so ALL ABOARD THE PAIN TRAIN.

  • She didn’t fly for weeks after it happened.
  • Even when she did start flying again she couldn’t get more than ten feet above the ground at first.
  • She still isn’t doing any casual hovering like she used to.  She only takes flight when necessary.
  • Beast Boy doesn’t understand why she keeps avoiding him in the halls at first.
  • When he figures it out, he spends more time in animal forms.
  • Petting him in dog form seems to help her.
  • He desperately wants to tell her jokes and try to make her laugh but he knows she won’t go for it and any giggles he would manage to pry from her would be hollow.
  • So he just curls up next to her as a cat or gerbil or puppy and is a calm, silent presence by her side.
  • Raven is quieter than usual and spends a lot of time meditating.
  • Without Starfire’s positive feelings of happiness and joy, the Tower’s air is a lot more clouded, and it’s… difficult to remain in balance.
  • Especially when she can sense Starfire’s sadness.
  • Raven is basically secondhand grieving.
  • Cyborg lets Starfire come down to the garage and work on projects with him to keep her mind and hands busy.
  • Robin spends a lot of time with her.
  • But he also gives her space when he can tell she wants to be alone.
  • He’ll cook meals and leave them outside her door though.
  • Along with little notes reminding her that he loves her and he’s there for her.
  • She tells him stories about Wildfire from her childhood.  He swaps memories about his parents.
  • They hold each other often.  Not saying anything.  Just being together.  Sometimes crying.
  • She has insomnia some nights and will go wake him up, so he can sit with her.  He’ll make her a hot drink and just let her talk.
  • He tries to encourage her to take out any anger on their obstacle course rather than out in the field.
  • (He’s offered to spar with her but she’s declined, afraid of hurting him in her grief.)
  • He doesn’t even say anything about her never leaving his side during fights, staying close to him, reacting badly whenever he gets hurt.
  • He knows the feeling all too well.
  • What really surprised all of them was when they got an alert in the middle of the night.
  • And it was Blackfire, staggeringly drunk and just punching walls to pieces with her starbolts.
  • Angrier than they’d ever seen her.
  • The others stood back as Starfire fought her and they absolutely wrecked the street for a bit, trading their usual barbs and insults, before Blackfire blurted out, “I HATED HIM, WHY DO I MISS HIM SO MUCH?”
  • And both girls collapsed together just holding each other and sobbing because they’re all they have left now.
  • They don’t even finish the fight, they just let Blackfire off.

the only thing that came to mind as the streets was that English hip hop garage project or whatever what is he talking about im confused

Today in my family is actually a sitcom: three generations (me, Mum, Grandma) of my family went to a glass-working convention. Mum and Grandma had been on one taster session previously, I was going in completely dry. Enjoyed the convention, worked some glass, saw some talented people work glass. 

Mum walks out with a £600 starter kit for working glass. That she physically has no room to set up where she lives, so it’s going to be set up in Grandma’s garage. Meaning I’ll have a glass-working workshop in the garage and I’ve only worked with glass once. 

Oh, and the garage is pretty full of my things right now, so the great summer project is making the garage into a safe glass-working workshop. So…that’s a thing. When my mum goes for something, she really goes for it!

Taking on a garage project can be daunting. First-time builders often find themselves in a downward spiral of costs, time and motivation—and vow never to pick up a wrench again.
Not Dimitri Chaussinand though. He pulled off his first project—a cute Yamaha TW125—in the underground parking garage of his apartment block, on a limited budget.
And now he’s done it again, with this killer Honda XR600R. Yes, that’s the legendary Baja 1000 winning bike, given a 21st century makeover.
The tank is an especially genius move—it’s from a Honda XL125S.
