house of scientists



Life is like a hurricane here in… modern-day America. But in Duckburg, it’s a veritable storm of fun, adventure, and d-d-d-danger for fans awaiting Disney XD’s summer revival of DuckTales, the beloved ‘80s cartoon about Donald Duck’s nephews and their wild excursions with great-uncle Scrooge McDuck (voiced by Doctor Who’s David Tennant).Premiering in August, the series has been carefully crafted as a familiar reboot albeit with contemporary comedy updates to the Disney Afternoon original. “One of the things we always loved about the old show was that it was this family of adventurers, but the emphasis in every episode had always been on the adventure and plotline,” says co-producer Francisco Angones. “The basic conceit of growing our show was that this is a big blended family of adventurers, so it should feel like a combination of Indiana Jones and a blended Arrested Development-style family sitcom where every character has a different relationship to one another.”The revival sticks to its adventure-of-the-week DNA, but with a hint of season-long serialization — one big mystery of the first season involves a decade-old family secret about why Scrooge and Donald stopped spelunking together — as well as sharpened characterization for nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie (Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, and Bobby Moynihan). “Since everyone always says ‘Huey, Dewey, and Louie’ in that exact order, we decided to make that the birth order, and by defining that, we were able to assign traits that fit,” says executive producer Matt Youngberg. “So, Huey’s the oldest, a little more responsible, a little bit brainy. Dewey wants to stand out, and wants to break out of being labeled as just one of a set of three. And Louie is happy being the youngest child — he can slip under the radar.”Joining the pack (though decidedly not the Quack Pack), expect significantly more screen time for little Webby (Kate Micucci), Scrooge’s niece-by-affection, whom Youngberg says has “a stronger and more unique voice than she ever had before.” Angones adds, “We almost never say ‘the nephews’ or ‘the boys’ — she’s a crucial part of the adventuring team, and they really are this big, weird family. If Huey has Scrooge’s brains, Dewey has Scrooge’s guts, and Louie has Scrooge’s love of treasure, Webby has Scrooge’s heart.”The population of Duckburg doesn’t stop there. Not even close. In addition to previously announced treats like Beck Bennett’s Launchpad McQuack and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Gizmoduck, the city is thriving with new and familiar characters — so let’s cannonball into some exclusives.

Donald Duck (Tony Anselmo)
Expect to see a lot more of this world-class walking temper tantrum in the new reboot, which bumps Donald Duck up to main cast status. “He’s been a single parent obsessively taking care of the boys, and he’s a little bit overprotective and doesn’t want to take a lot of risks, whereas so much of Scrooge’s success is based on the fact that he’s willing to take risks,” says Angones. “In our world, about 10 years ago, Scrooge and Donald used to go on these big, crazy, rip-roaring adventures, and then they stopped talking to each other, to the point where when we start our show, Huey, Dewey, and Louie don’t even know that the richest duck in the world and this legendary explorer is their great uncle.” By the end of the first episode, Donald reluctantly moves his whole family in with Scrooge, but maintains some degree of his own independence — by keeping his houseboat in the pool. 

Gladstone Gander (Paul F. Tompkins)
Few things can unite Scrooge and Donald like a shared nemesis, and we find that in Gladstone Gander, a dandy old character who always irked Donald and now gets under Scrooge’s feathers, too. Angones says, “The great thing about Gladstone is that since Donald is fundamentally unlucky, Gladstone is supernaturally lucky, and so Scrooge and Donald can both agree that they hate Gladstone because he does nothing and gets everything.” (Also worth hating: Gladstone’s father’s name is Goosetave. GOOSETAVE.)

Gyro Gearloose (Jim Rash)
You’ll notice Scrooge’s in-house mad scientist has gotten a fairly hipster makeover, but neither his wild inventions nor vocal exclamations (by Community’s Jim Rash) are any less manic. While his intern Fenton (Lin-Manuel Miranda) moonlights as local superhero Gizmoduck, presumable fan-favorite Gyro Gearloose keeps the spirit of DuckTales’ crazy super-science alive.

Goldie O’Gilt (Allison Janney)
Returning as Scrooge’s longtime paramour is Goldie O’Gilt, a fellow adventurer who has a curious relationship with old McDuck. “In our adaptation, Scrooge is more of an adventure junkie than a gold addict, so we kept saying, ‘Well, if Scrooge is like Batman, then Goldie should be like Catwoman,’” says Angones. “She’s equally adventurous, every bit Scrooge’s equal, and he hates and loves that. They have this amazingly contentious relationship that’s been going on ages and ages, spanning back to the Gold Rush days.” Plus, the producers say it was David Tennant who geeked out the most about Janney joining the cast: “He heard us play a line she had recorded and he said, ‘That’s C.J. Cregg!‘”Ma Beagle (Margo Martindale) and the Beagle Boys (Eric Bauza)
The perennially annoying villains are back in full force to block Scrooge’s adventures, with beloved character actress Margo Martindale on hand to voice the maniacal matriarch of the family of genuinely idiotic criminals. Big fans will note that they actually look like dogs this time. Relatively

Flintheart Glomgold (Keith Ferguson)
One of Scrooge’s wealthy equals in Duckburg is Scottish showman Flintheart Glomgold, whom Youngberg describes as “this kind of go-go ‘80s billionaire who made all his money from branding and getting his face on every storefront.” Angones says, “Glomgold is bigger, faster, and cheaper. An in-joke we had for him was that originally in the comics, he was South African, and then they made him Scottish in [the original] DuckTales, so we really leaned into that and decided that when Glomgold saw that Scrooge was a Scottish billionaire, he decided to be the cheap knock-off. More Scottish and even richer.

”Mark Beaks (Josh Brener)
The Silicon Valley actor adds fresh blood to the echelon of wealthy ducks that dominate the city. “We had a bunch of old money billionaires — Scrooge is the oldest money, this billionaire of the industrial revolution, and we have Glomgold — so we included somebody who’s representative of today’s billionaires, which is the tech industry billionaire,” says Youngberg. “Mark Beaks doesn’t care as much about money as he cares about status and being buzzworthy and how many followers he has.” Angones adds, “Josh Brener was so incredibly on all the time, selling and pitching. He’s a character who’s so broad and over the top, you love to be annoyed by him.

Steve and Bucky were sparring in the gym. They’d lost track of how long they’d been going at it. Both of them had to lose their t-shirts from overheating and wetness. Bucky was even forced to pull back his shaggy hair into a messy bun. They were covered in sweat and if it weren’t for random music playing, all they’d be able to hear is their heavy breathing.

“Thought I smelled something when I walked in…” A voice called out from the entrance. It was followed by an adorable giggle.

Steve instantly turned his head, knowing that voice anywhere. He beamed as he saw Y/N walk into the gym with a bag and her workout clothes on.

Bucky smirked at his best friend. Steve couldn’t stop looking like a lovesick puppy every time Y/N was in the room if he tried.

Steve instantly ignored Bucky’s presence now that she was in the room.

Tony Stark's Daughter-Part five

Readers POV
We arrived at the secret house a few hours after we left, it was in the middle of nowhere which I guess was the whole idea because it made us harder to be found which is what we all needed.

I was sat outside looking out at the countryside that surrounded the house, it had been such a long time since I’d been surrounded by nature like this, all those years spent in the Hydra labs….it felt strange to finally be free, part of me couldn’t believe that it was real…Like it was just some type of dream.

“It’s beautiful, isn’t it?” Bucky said as he sat down next to me, putting his arm around my waist. I smiled at him and nodded before placing my head on his shoulder.

“Is this even real, Buck? It feels​ too good to be true” I sighed, he kissed my head and chuckled.

“Yeah, doll, it’s real,” he whispered to me.
The two of us stayed like that until the evening, just sat with each other, looking at the view and talking about everything that has happened​. It then got late and I decided to go to my room. Part of me was terrified to go to sleep in fear of the nightmares returning, but I was so tired and as soon as my head was on the pillow I fell asleep instantly.

I was with Bucky and the guys at the safe house, we were all laughing and joking over dinner. And then there was the sound of gunshots. I went to run, but was stopped by the scene that I saw infront of me. They were dead. All of them. All of the Avengers. My dad…And Bucky all of them had bullet holes running through their heads as blood covered their faces.
And then I heard his voice….the voice of the man that had tortured me for years…The man that i had grown to fear more than anyone.
“This is all your fault” he began “you cause trouble wherever you go, you’ve caused so many deaths..” his voice was like an echo as images replayed in head…Images of all the people he had made me kill.
Within seconds, I was sat in a chair with that stupid device on my head… I knew what was going to to happen and I tried so hard to be brave, but I couldn’t hide my fear.
“You’re a monster, Y/N, a perfect little monster” he said, and it’s then that he turned on the device, sending  I am immense amount of pain to surge through my body,and then he began talking in Russian. He was saying the code, the code that triggered the monster that Hydra had created.
I could feel myself slowly slipping back….Back to the monster….back to the killer that they had created….Back to my own nightmare.
End of dream

Bucky’s POV
I couldn’t sleep, I knew that even if I tried, I wouldn’t be able to. So I was just sat in the kitchen drinking a beer. But that’s when I heard a scream, coming from upstairs. I instantly thought about Y/N…she suffered from the same nightmares that I did. I ran upstairs to see the Avengers all standing outside the room looking at Y/N with worry, Tony was in the room with her trying to wake her up, I noticed that a similar worry filled his eyes. I walked into into the room and sat opposite Tony.

I placed my metal hand on her cheek, stroking it softly as I leant close to her ear whispering,

“Y/N, doll, you need to wake up, it’s not real, it’s just a dream,” and “C’mon doll, come back to me”, I repeated those phrases a few more time, (Y/N and I had known each other long enough to know how to wake one another up from a nightmare), and eventually Y/N woke up. Her forehead was covered with sweat and her eyes were wide and watery…She looked so fragile in that moment, like her whole world could fall apart any second…. I had seen this look before and I carefully grabbed her chin so she facing me.

“Bucky?” She asked, her voice cracking as she did so.

“It’s me, it was just a dream doll, you’re safe, we all are”I whispered to her before she fell into my chest sobbing. I held her close as I rubbed soothing circles onto her back. I didn’t need to ask her what the nightmare was about, I already knew. Hydra.
I looked over at Tony, he looked broken….I couldn’t imagine how hard this was for him, all those years of her missing, the fear that she was dead….and in a way she was, the little girl that he knew had died a long time ago, Y/N was different now. And there was nothing anyone could do to help her…The memories from Hydra always came back, no matter what. Tony nodded at me as I held his daughter in my arms as he left the room, the other Avengers followed closely behind. I stayed with Y/N comforting her, and after she has calmed down we just lied in bed together…Neither of us uttering a single word, knowing that words wouldn’t help.

Tony’s POV
“Tony?” Rhodey asked cautiously as I grabbed a bottle of whiskey and poured myself a glass.

“Is now really a good time to be drinking?” Clint asked. I clenched my fist at his words. In a simple answer, no, now wasn’t a good time to be drinking. But I needed to. I needed to have the drink so that I wouldn’t hunt every single Hydra agent down and kill them. Kill them for what they did to my little girl.

“No, Clint, it isn’t, but right now it’s the only thing stopping me from getting in my suit and killing every single son of a bitch that hurt my daughter” I said anger filling my voice. Everyone looked at me sympathetically as I poured myself another glass. I hated seeing Y/N like this, I hated hearing her screaming and not being able to help her. I blamed myself for everything…Why did I have to try and be the hero, why couldn’t I have just stayed with my daughter. If I’d have stayed, they never would’ve taken her…And she wouldn’t be this way.

My rage filled inside me causing me to throw the glass at the nearest wall, shattering it to pieces as I knelt over the counter letting out a sigh.

“Tony, you cannot blame yourself” Wanda said as she walked over to me.

“Wanda’s right, Tony, none of this is your fault,” Steve said as he moved the bottle of whiskey away from me. It’s then that we saw Bucky enter the room.

“She’s okay, she’s reading” he said.

“How’s you know to do that?” Nat asked him. He looked at me before answering her question

“Y/N and I are very used to dealing with each other in that state…The nightmares, they feel so real.” he said

“What are the nightmares about?” I asked, he looked at me, working out if he should tell me, knowing that it would not only enrage me but the others as well.

“I want to know what they did to my daughter, please tell me” I asked as I moved closer to him. He let out a sigh and nodded.

“Y/N was always stubborn, she never did what they wanted her to do…So they had to break her, it meant doing a similar thing to her as they did to me, it meant erasing her memories and creating a new person…A monster. She remembered things quicker than anyone else, and when she did, she broke down, which is why they did the experiments on her, it was like a punishment for her remembering , and they hoped that it would make her weak so that the next time they erased her memories it would last longer…And they were right…So they did more experiments, hoping that they would give her powers…But they never worked, so they tortured her as a result of the experiments not working.” Bucky explained, I could feel years begin to enter my eyes.

“Wh-what type of torture?” I asked choking on my words, he looked at me with a warning look in his eye, as if asking if I was sure I wanted to know. I nodded in reply, even though i didn’t want to know…But I needed to know.

“it was both mental and physical torture. They would put visions in her head of you dying, and they would show her pictures of everyone she’d ever killed….they’d also hurt her,beat her up, sometimes so bad that she’d be in the hospital for a few days.”He whispered quietly, as I saw a tear fall from his eyes.

“How did you two get so close?” Steve asked, I think he was trying to get Bucky back to happier memory.

“We were in cells next to each other, and we just started talking…And then Hydra partnered us together on missions….we protected each other when we were the ‘monsters’ and we helped each other when we returned to normal.” Bucky said as a small smile came onto his face,
“She was always talking about you, Tony, about how you were a big hero and that all she wanted was to see you again, even if it was just for a second. She hoped that you wouldn’t be stuck in a wallow of self pity, she even thought you might be moved on and got a new family…She was forever talking about always wanting a little brother or sister.,” As Bucky said those words, I felt a wave of emotions hit me,part of me was devastated that she thought I could move on and forget about her, but then I remembered how she was younger, before her mother died, she would always ask us to give her a baby brother or sister…She even put it on her Christmas list one year…I couldn’t help but smile as I remembered the old memories.

Unknown POV
“So they’re in that house” I asked the scientist standing next to me.
“Yes, I take it you remember what to do?” He asked me. I nodded in reply, I was to get Y/N Stark back to the Hydra base. That was my mission, that was what I had to do. And I was going to do it, I had to, it’s what I’d been ordered to do.

1- I was going to add more detail but then grew lazy and did not.

Say hey to Rizzmurr! :D  

Minion on the Vlos'tah house, she is a mad scientist, a healer, a friend and a chirpy drow. If Frankestein was a drow, then perhaps this punk look alike would be the perfect fit. She stops at nothing; heck, she even knows how to swap between bodies and does it regularly just because she can.

Still, can be quite the annoying little one! Specially when drunk XD

anonymous asked:


send me a 💭 and i’ll give you one headcanon about my muse         

So this is more about Carlos’ apartment than himself. I drew a quick diagram:

So the lab is on the first floor. Going in, straight across the lab is the back door which leads to a staircase. Go up the staircase in the same direction and you walk into Carlos’ apartment. However, that apartment is directly on top of the lab even though the staircase never takes any turns. The stairs themselves don’t seem to physically be a part of the building from the outside either – they act more like a portal walkway from one door to the other.

It’s just one of those weird Night Vale architecture things that I have in my head whenever i write about Carlos going up to his apartment from the lab.
