Do you know what the funny part about One Day is?

The generic trope of “hero turns evil” doesn’t work at all.

At least, it doesn’t work from Jason or Tyler’s perspective. Like I could never write a subplot or a sequel or anything where one of the brothers wanted to rebel by becoming a supervillain because literally Lucius would just look up from his cup of tea and be like, “…Okay.”

Not only because he’s the most supportive guardian in the world but because he is a supervillain. 


“You can’t stop me.”

“I’m not trying to stop you. I’m all for it. Do you need any help? Here, I have some weapons around here somewhere.”

People are going to murder me for this one:

Jason wrapped his arms around himself in a desperate attempt to hold himself together. It failed. All he could think of was Lucius’ arms wrapping around him, pulling him into a warm hug, where he knew that he was safe.

“Jason,” Richard whispered.

The teenager doubled over, his eyes and throat hotter than any fire that he had ever wielded.


He straightened up at the new voice. A groan burst through his otherwise tight lips as he saw that Johnson was wheeling towards him.

“Not now,” he said.

“Yes now,” she snapped. “Your brother is in my office—”

The teenager swore and mentally kicked himself.

“I forgot about Tyler,” he said. “Is-is he okay?”


His heart skipped several beats and the entire global temperature seemed to rise substantially.

“Okay, wait, wait,” Johnson said. “He’s physically all right but he’s an emotional wreck. He’s been sobbing for hours.”

“Yeah?” whispered Jason. “Well t-tell him to j-j-join the c-cl-cluuuub.”

With that, he broke down sobbing. His entire body crumpled and it took both Lee and Richard to keep him upright.

“Technically,” Johnson said, “since he was the one crying first, you would be joining his club.”

Jason didn’t hear her. He didn’t hear anything. Not that any of it really mattered anymore.


I want you to remember how you’ve made me laugh and sometimes cry, and I never want to forget how special and different you are and how you’ve touched my heart in a way that no one else could.

It turns out that Ellen Ripley isn’t the only awesome lady who can operate the Power Loader from the movie Aliens. Jason Smith created this very impressive power loader Halloween costume for himself to wear while his infant daughter sits in the driver’s seat.

Click here to watch a video of Jason and daughter operating their power loader.

“My highest priority was keeping my little girl safe, so the costume was designed for mobility and quick exit in case of emergency. The boots are basically cardboard slippers that could pop right off. With a shrug of my shoulders, I could pop the arms right off. What you can’t see from the video is that there are no bottoms on the robot arms, so my human arms were completely free and unimpeded. I could leave the claws hanging idle from the shoulder joints while I could address any of my girl’s needs. I would have had to take the suit off to changer her diaper, though!”

Jason’s daughter looks so comfy that we suspect she might even have a Class-2 rating. What a cute little overachiever.
