goldens for days

Mothers Day

-Sirius is sat drinking alone, Grimmauld place is as dark an grim as ever. The curtain covering Walburga’s painting must have fallen because he can hear her screaming again.- - 

Sirius: I get it *Laughs bitterly* 

Walburga: Look at what you’ve become… you betrayed me, and then what? got your little friends killed too, didn’t you? 

Walburga: What will you do? Cover me with a curtain? 

Sirius: *takes the curtain from the floor but freezes as Walburga starts speaking*

Sirius: *through his teeth* 

Walburga: Regulus chose to join the death eaters because he was a black. 

Sirius: Me? *laughs rather maniacally* 

((OOC: Since its mothers day in the UK have some post- Azkaban black family angst… 

Walbluga played by @sirussly (so beautifully terrifying on such short notice) 

and thanks to @jilylicious for helping me develop a super rough idea, you’re amazing)) 

Meet Trench and Maple, a Human-Dog Dynamic Musical Duo

To hear some of Trench and Maple’s favorite tunes, follow @acoustictrench on Instagram.

Since Trench (@acoustictrench) was a boy growing up in New England, he’s always been drawn to music. “One of my earliest memories is playing the air guitar in the kitchen when the Beach Boys came on the radio,” he says. Fast forward 20 years, and Trench plays as many instruments — from the guitar to the ukulele, harp to cello — and has an unlikely musical partner: his dog, Maple.

“I adopted her from a rescue shelter when she was a puppy,” says Trench, “And since then, she follows me everywhere. Whenever I play the guitar, she comes over and curls up next to me. I think the music comforts her.” As Trench began recording videos of himself playing, Maple naturally appeared in the background. “She’s essentially become the face of my music,” he says. Maple even joins in on the jam sessions once in a while, tapping on a drum or a tambourine. “She’s so smart and she picks up things really fast,” says Trench. “So I always have fun with her and see if she can join in.”
