Yondu not having any idea what Terrans eat so he tries to give Peter like, raw meat and stuff, and Peter is disgusted and Yondu is confused (“What’s wrong, boy? It’s fresh! Eat it!”). Though Peter is even more bummed out when he finds out there’s no McDonalds in space.
Peter wanting video games but Yondu telling him flying an M-ship is way more exciting than any video game (“All right, if it is, let me fly one!” “You’re too young to fly, you’ll crash.” “No, I won’t! If I can’t play games, at least let me try!” “I said no!” “But Yonduuuuu!” “You’re an annoying little bugger, you know that?” *grumbling and muttering* “All right, follow me, you can give Tulk’s old ship a try, but you put one mark on it- one mark, one spill on the dash- and you don’t get to give it another shot til you’re fourteen.” “KRAGLIN! YONDU’S GONNA LET ME FLY!”)
Peter trying to tell the Ravagers about Halloween, but they just don’t get it, and when he scavenges the materials to dress up as a pirate, they don’t notice anything different (except Kraglin, who says, “Nice hat, Pete,” when a rather deflated Peter walks by in full costume).
Members of other factions sometimes thinking Kraglin is Peter’s dad, and Yondu getting lowkey pissed off about it (“Course that’s not his dad, ya moron! Quill, get back on the ship and stop causing trouble.”)
Kraglin losing his blaster and freaking out cause he can’t find his spare and Peter says, “Just go ask Yondu for one!” and Kraglin is like, “He’ll get mad!” and Peter is confused because apparently, “I do it all the time whenever I lose something, he doesn’t care,” which is weird, because last time Kraglin lost something and went to Yondu to see if he knew where it was, Yondu snapped at him, “If you don’t keep an eye on your stuff, it’s not my problem when you can’t find it.”
The crew getting new communication devices and Peter texting with Kraglin all the time so Yondu gets suspicious and is always nosing on Peter’s end (“Who you writing to all the time, boy? You planning a mutiny?”)
Peter going through puberty and everyone on the whole ship making fun of his voice cracking up to the point where he ends up getting in a fight with someone because he’s so sick of it and Yondu has to drag them apart and scold them both for being immature, but as he’s walking away, he imitates Peter too.
Peter getting his hands on an electric guitar and keeping half the crew from sleeping with his late-night shredding until Yondu finally starts locking Peter’s guitar in his cabin every night at 11:00 (“Kraglin, Yondu said I’m not allowed to practice sick riffs past 11:00…” *Kraglin internally fist-pumps* “Aww, sorry Pete.”)
Peter going on his first solo mission and Yondu being on edge the whole time, which means he’s extraordinarily irritable toward the crew, so they all come to dread Peter’s missions because Yondu’s so unpleasant while he’s gone.
Peter getting arrested on some planet and Yondu bailing him out the next morning. Peter’s mad at Yondu for not doing it the night he got in, but according to Yondu, every Ravager should spend at least a couple nights of their life in jail, and though he doesn’t say it, he’s pretty proud of Peter for having done something that could get him time.
• meeting each other at uni bc you were both the two odd ones out
• you’d notice how he had lots of friends here and there, but never really hung out w/ them outside his schedule
• he’d usually be walking around with a guitar slung around his shoulder every weekend
• one time you ran into his back and almost broke the guitar in half, and if looks can kill……………
• but he’s really chill tho, bc he realized you didn’t do it on purpose so he’s like “it’s all good, I think it was my bad actually”
• but yall exchanged smiles every now and then during your shared classes
• and not really talking to each other until he finds you struggling with this English paper, and he’s like “bruh me too………you wanna help me w/ this paper and I can help you out w/ math???”
• you wouldn’t figure out how tf he knew you were struggling at math, but you wouldn’t be complaining tbfh
• so yall would tutor each other for weeks on end, eating nothing but *healthy* junk food, Ramen, and coffee
• but one day it’s like he disappeared from the face of the earth when he was gone for almost 6 months
• you didn’t really ask anyone bc it’s not like you knew him like that anyway ??? But it was still weird
• when he finally returned, you’d be all “???” And he’s all “….???? I was recording w/ the boys :’)”
• aaaaaand, fast forward to today……….where you’re basically his biggest fan / hype man / bestie / the person who saves his butt every time he didn’t do his hw
• he’d actually introduce you to the guys really quickly, one day when they flew in to visit him at campus
• “ahh, so THESE are the dorks that you hang out with when you’re not here……..I thought I was missing out lmao” *jae chokes* “wow I like her”
• lots of days spent in the dorms doing nothing but playing video games and binge eating ice cream
• he really is a life savior when it comes to difficult subjects that you’re struggling with
• he’s just really lazy to do his work sometimes so he’d always ask you to help wow
• you encouraging him to perform during events at the campus, and when he does it’s like dang!!!!!! I’m his biggest fan that’s my boi!!!!!!!!!!!
• you embarrassing each other so often that people start avoiding yall
• literally everyone thinking that you’re dating, bc the amount of skinship is bordering on cringy relationship levels
• piggyback rides are your preferred transportation methods
• him coming up with dumb af nicknames to call you when your crushes are around ffs
• him laughing like crazy bc you’re blushing like crazy
• having a cute handshake that only 10 year olds would dream of having aww
• both of yall trolling jae on his twitter and him getting yall back w/ some shady ass tweets
• feat. Jae dragging poor Dowoon into it as well
• knowing how to get on his nerves “hey, young k!!!!!!! wassup youngin”
• one time he didn’t speak to you for a month bc you told the waiter it was Brian’s birthday, so the whole restaurant sang and made a fuss over him
• “is2g we’ll never speak if you do that again ;(((((”
• being really happy to see him after months of him recording and touring
• and him probably bringing back lots of presents bc no matter how embarrassing and teasing he is, Brian would still spoil his bestie 💜

We used to have this sub in middle school who everyone called Jesus teacher, because he was Greek and had long hair and an epic beard and wore sandals every day. At the end of eighth grade talent show he sang the songs he wrote and played his guitar for the last half of the show. No one calls him Jesus teacher anymore tho because he shaved and got a haircut and wears fashionable sweaters
You shake your head. “I’m not sure yet, bug,” you try to
answer as casually as you can while checking your phone. The cup of tea you’d
brewed for yourself has all but gone cold in your attempts to nurse it in order
to beat back the advances of the eager, energetic child hopping around your
tiny kitchen. It’s already 11:00 am, though, and you don’t know how much longer
you can drag your feet.
“Why aren’t you sure?”
“Because I’m not.”
You look to your phone again, waiting and waiting for a
message that has yet to come.
Jeff: When he was younger, he would go out with Liu and their pet dog to destroy ant hills and throw ants at kids…
BEN: For his birthday one year, his mom (when she was alive) brought him to a movie theater and they snuck into about three movies
Toby: His sister and him would play card games a lot so one time they played UNO and she was raging so hard. Toby thought it was hilarious.
Masky and Hoodie: When Masky and Hoodie were younger (before they were proxies) they went to a gas station and stole a pack of gum. They had the cashier chase them but when he found out that it was only a pack of gum, he literally cried because of what a waste of time they were. They made a grown man cry over gum.
EJ: When he was a senior in high school, he learned how to play the guitar and had half of the girls swooning over him the entire year. He was a big heart breaker ;)
Jane: For her Sweet 16, her mom brought her to a spa and they had an absolute blast! Facials, massages, and Mani-Pedis!
Clockwork: Her and her best friend at the time were asked to bake a cake for their school’s bake sell. The cake ended up being burnt and terrible but they had so much fun ruining that cake.
“Doll I need your help” Happy said “With what Hun” I
responded we were at the clubhouse alone surprisingly usually everyone is here
even the croweaters but there was no one in sight. “I might have broken Tigs
guitar” He said I whipped my head around to see him with a sheepish smile.
what” I spoke deadly calm just like he taught me. Even he looked worried of what’s
going to happen Tig was very protective of this guitar he won’t even let his brothers
“Well shit” I said he nodded “How bad did you break it” I
asked “Like a lot” He stated while shrugging his shoulders “I’ll go get it” I nodded
my head. I sat back down on the bar stool reaching over to get a bottle of
vodka “Whatever the fuck is out there please fucking help us with the shit” I
whispered before taking a swing at the bottle.
Take Me to Church - Hozier. this is my first time ever ever ever attempting to play this song after a kind friend suggested it today. i recorded it to see where i’d eventually get to from my first take but decided hey. this is real life. this is my first take with mistakes up the wazoo. and why not share that while also asking y'all what songs you’d want me to cover !!??
PS as many are aware, i’m surfing on couches and beds and dog sitting gigs all summer before i move into an apartment with some guys i adore in September. so no - my guitar didn’t get chopped in half - this is my new @martinguitar backpack guitar! still naming her… so open to any name suggestions ;) my big mama guitar y'all know is named after my grandma Betty Lou. part of me thinks this lil one should be named after my mum aka Betty Lou’s child but Stephanie Gay is a mouthful and YES MY MOMS MIDDLE NAME IS GAY I LOVE IT OKAY BUT STILL.
anywho. i love you all! suggest me names and also songs to learn and i’ll try my best this summer ❤️❤️ #hozier #takemetochurch #martinguitar #backpackguitar #mybaby #trans #transandhappy #music #queer #lgbtq #transgender
(Inspired by a whole bunch of other band posts for the rangers)
~Billy’s the first one to initiate it. Sure Kim wrote the note but after Tomi joins the squad, he finds it on Kim’s desk when he and the rest of the team are over for her little brother’s birthday. He takes the forgotten memory and then goes home to come up with a plan.
~He figures it’s a good cover for them during the summer and the ‘study group’ excuse is no longer valid. He’s heard Kim singing lowly a couple of times during training breaks and after the car wreck, Jason’s grandfather bought him an electric guitar to cheer him up. He’s not terrible when he plays it. Zach just seems like the drummer type and Trini played the bass in her old school’s band. Hard to believe but it happened. Tomi is the songwriter type whose been playing the acoustic guitar since she was fourteen. And that just leaves him, and he’s taken seven years of piano. He’s pretty sure he could get the hang of the keyboard pretty fast.
~At first, no one takes him seriously. No one. Kim doesn’t sing in public, Jason only plays it when he’s bored, it’s just a hobby to him. Zach has never touched a drum kit in his entire life, which was incredibly surprising to Billy. Trini would like to bury her bass playing years deep in the past and Tomi is strictly a solo artist.
~It takes him weeks to convince them to try just one practice. Just one. (Jason was the first to give in and he managed to convince everyone else)
~It went horribly. Zach broke the drum set Billy bought for him, Trini choked when it came time for her to play, Kim had a breakdown and Tomi got so frustrated that she snapped her guitar in half. Practice hadn’t even been going on for an hour and four out of the six members of ‘RANGER’ had already quit.
~Jason would’ve left to if he hadn’t noticed how upset Billy was. He ended up staying and both he and Billy managed to. Jason was a pretty good singer, he had a blonde Ed Sheeran vibe about him, and the two managed to record a few decent songs.
~It soon became a regular thing from them. After school and training, the met up and rehearsed in Billy’s garage. The rest of the team soon took notice to their behavior and kind of just assumed the two were dating.
~Jason found out about their suspicions when he saw a picture of him and Billy on Kim’s Instagram feed laughing about something he didn’t remember at his locker. The caption read ‘cutest couple at Angle Grove High and anyone of you can fight me on this. You will not win.’
~He confronted her about it the next morning and she laughed saying "There’s no reason to hide it anymore, we all know you guys are a thing. The rest of the team and I think it’s cute". Jason ignored the flutter in his stomach and rubbed his hands over his face at her comment. “We’re not together okay, we’re in a band.” Kim’s smile dropped and she apologized, promising to delete the picture immediately. Jason ignored the pang in his heart but went along with it anyway.
~Later that day, Kim and the rangers stopped by Billy's to see them rehearse. To say Billy was excited was an understatement. He somehow played better than usual and somehow Jason’s voice seemed to be more precise when it came to hitting the notes. Their fellow rangers were impressed, beyond impressed.
~Over the course of a couple months RANGER slowly but surely started to fall in place. After a long talk with Trini, Kim somehow overcame her fear of singing in front of crowds and took over as lead. Zach studied thousands of YouTube videos on drumming and even got a few lessons from the band director at school. It took Trini only a couple of days to get familiar with the base again and she found herself missing the instrument more than she care to admit. And after Billy scraped some gold off his Zord he bought Tomi a new guitar. RANGER had officially been formed.
~Their first performance was at a benefit concert in Angel Grove that was put together in order to thank the rangers for saving them and to raise money to fix the town up. The crowd loved it.
~By the time the teams graduated they were internet sensations. They signed a deal with Columbia Records the next year and quickly rose to fame.
~They managed to keep their private lives and superhero identities a secret for the entirety of their careers and live happily ever after.
has made an error of judgement. He thought this would be harder sober. He was
wrong. This would have been easier sober. Because right now his slightly muddled
mind can’t sort the thoughts that he wants to have from the ones he doesn’t. He’s
put his head down on his arms to stop himself from looking at Jehan. Jehan who’s
wearing white tonight. White with lace edges. And not a single mismatched
colour to spoil it. But still with that braided leather bracelet with little
bells tied around their right ankle. Jehan…
gentle sound of hollow wood and suddenly there’s music. Montparnasse raises his
head. Grantaire has a guitar. He blinks. Where did Grantaire get a guitar? Does
Bahorel play the guitar?
something R,” Bahorel drawls, stretching out even longer on the floor.
plucks the strings idly, his eyes half closed. “I don’t entertain on my own,”
he says. “I lack the exhibitionist soul.”
Bahorel pipes up again. “Sing something so Grantaire’s fucking shy soul will
play us a damn song.”
forgets to breathe. Jehan sings?
Jehan smiles, pushing at Bahorel’s knee with their bare foot.

exhales and lowers his head onto his arms again. He’s wishes Éponine would
hurry up with Wonder Boy and I’m-No-Longer-Allow-To-Call-Her-Wonder-Gal. She
texted him they were twenty minutes away half an hour ago.
keeps plucking the strings, but there seems a little more method to the rhythm
this time. Suddenly there’s chords and Montparnasse’s stupid foggy head is
still trying to figure out how notes became chords when-
“If you’ll be my star
I’ll be your sky
You can hide underneath me and come out at night…”
voice is sweet and lovely because of course it is. Montparnasse has heard them
recite poetry before, but this is not the same. This is so so much worse.
“When I turn jet black
And you show off your light
I live to let you shine
I live to let you shine…”
The words are
all wrong. Jehan has never worn a scrap of black. Half of Montparnasse wants to
argue and the other half wants to shut up and listen and all of him raises his
head and opens his eyes and he should not have done that.
swaying, almost dancing, next to Grantaire who sits hunched over the guitar,
eyes still half closed. Bahorel is now stretched out on the floor like a
starfish, grinning at the ceiling. Jehan’s feet are moving and the bells on
their ankle are making the softest possible sounds as they catch the light and
Montparnasse is staring.
“But you can skyrocket away from me
And never come back if you find another galaxy
Far from here with more room to fly
Just leave me your stardust to remember you by…”
is burning at the back of Montparnasse’s throat. He can’t… Why should the black
sky be satisfied with stardust? It didn’t even touch the star. The least the
star can do is stay…
words start to blur together until he can only hear the sound, the warmth, the
lovely rise and fall of their voice. Every now and again a sentence bleeds
through the melody and they are so sweet and so painful.
“I live to make you free…
I live to make you free…”
words describing someone selfless and generous. Someone capable of seeing something
beautiful and not wanting it with their whole soul to never ever let it go
again. Someone utterly unlike Montparnasse. Those are awful, mocking words and
it is unfair that they are the most beautiful thing he has ever hear. So
terribly, horribly unfair.
“Just leave me your stardust to remember you by…
Stardust… to remember you by…”
voice lingers even longer than the last note of the guitar. They stop swaying
and turning and Montparnasse is still staring. Suddenly their hazel eyes look straight
into his and they smile. Montparnasse can feel the starlight searing straight
through him. He smiles back. It’s an empty excuse for a smile, but at least he
means it. Because…he’s not going to let the star get away. But he’s not going
to let it break apart into stardust either.
