  • Roger: Ace is my freckled baby!
  • Roger: Sabo is my blond angel!
  • Roger: Luffy is my hyperactive sweetheart!
  • Roger: My boys are pure and tiny and must be protected!
  • Rouge: Ace and Sabo are dating now. They are going out with Marco.
  • Roger: My boys are lean mean killing machines and I will sick them onto the unsuspecting fools that think they are good enough for my dangerous little monsters. I can't wait to watch cities burn and islands sink. That blue rat will burn in hell. I'll gut himself if I have to.

May 2, 2017 - Cook’s Petrel (Pterodroma cookii)

One of the smallest petrel species, these birds breed only on New Zealand’s Little Barrier, Great Barrier, and Codfish Islands, migrating to the Pacific coast of South America and the eastern Pacific Ocean. They eat mostly squid, crustaceans, and small fish, plucking prey from the surface of the water. Like other petrels and albatrosses, they have an upper stomach, used to store oil from their diet, and a lower stomach, where water, fat, and proteins are digested. The oil can move in small amounts into their lower stomach to provide energy as needed and can also be regurgitated to feed chicks. Chicks use the foul-smelling oil for defense, ejecting it onto predators. Breeding in colonies, they nest in burrows, where females lay a single egg. They are classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN, due to predation on their breeding islands from cats, rats, and Weka, a species of flightless rail that has been introduced to Codfish Island.

Summary: The Doctor and Rose end up in another parallel universe shortly after their visit to Pete’s World, finding that they’ve left the events between them on the SS Madame de Pompadour unresolved. They meet parallel versions of themselves who are also in the middle of a row. The Doctor and Rose help sort out the parallel couple’s argument, but they didn’t count on receiving help in return.

Notes: This was prompted by a submission to @timepetalsprompts​: The Doctor and Rose land in this parallel universe where they’re sworn enemies. (bonus if the original rose/doctor help the others put their differences aside and get together)

I had originally envisioned this in 7 chapters, but I’ve decided to break it down into more bite-sized chunks.

Unbeta’d.

Chapters: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12


When the Doctor woke, he had a splitting headache, and he was laying supine on the sand.

All he’d been doing was strolling down the beach, thinking about Rose. Next thing he knew, his world went black.

He rubbed the side of his head and sat up, sand slipping down the back of his shirt. “Bloody sand.” He brushed himself off and made to stand. “I hate sand. It just gets everywhere.” He froze when he heard the unsheathing of a sword.

“YOU!”

The next thing he knew, the sword was pointed at his throat. He looked down the long blade, and then up at its owner…Rose.

“Popeye and Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges”

Set in the fishing village of Sweet Haven, (the setting of the classic Popeye comics) Popeye and Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges sends guests on a tumultuous voyage through the seas around town, and straight into the epic rivalry of Popeye and Bluto. Built with the promise of soaking guests in the Orlando heat more than any other ride in town, this exciting and well-themed rapids attraction has been a staple since the opening of Islands of Adventure at Universal Orlando Resort in 1999. This concept art, which isn’t reflective of the final queue building, shows a more built-out incarnation of the fishing village, complete with nods to the comics everywhere you look. Initial plans also called for a Hoop-Dee-Doo-esque revue as part of the Sweet Haven land-within-a-land.
