@stimtastic I showed Groot my Dulcimer when I met him at California Adventure! He tilted his head this way and that while I explained what it’s for, then told me in his own way that it must be tasty, lol :)

The Tangle in my hand is off Amazon because I’m a magpie and like shiny things. Groot tried to eat it! I think it’s hilarious that I can walk around saying “Hey, Groot bit my Tangle!” XD

Seriously, it’s IN his mouth! <3

Groot is a character I really identify with, so getting to ‘meet’ him was very special. 

I have a video of the whole thing (my photos are screencaps from it). I’m only going to link it to keep this post from getting any longer.

Btw the Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: Breakout ride is frigging awesome, but it might be overwhelming if you don’t like sudden rises or falls in the dork or have motion sickness.
Like the King of Pop, The 1975 want to rock your body
Matthew Healy, frontman of the English rock band The 1975, remembers how emotional and impactful his first major concert was when he was just 8 years old. The artist was Michael Jackson, and Healy recalls the night vividly.

New interview with The Washington Post

NEW YORK — Matthew Healy, frontman of the English rock band The 1975, remembers how emotional and impactful his first major concert was when he was just 8 years old. The artist was Michael Jackson, and Healy recalls the night vividly.

“It kind of solidified he was a pantheon of culture, and that he was larger than life, and that he was bigger than reality,” Healy said in an interview. “That moment of him being there was like one of the most powerful things for me as a young person. I’d never cared that much really about anything. … I’d never wanted to see somebody or be in the presence of somebody like that. And I kind of never have since.”

Healy, 28, is hoping his fans feel the same way when they see The 1975 on its latest U.S. arena tour, which launched this week.

The genre-bending band is riding high on the success of last year’s “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It” — its sophomore album that debuted at No. 1 in both the United States and the United Kingdom. It was named Rolling Stones’ No. 1 pop album of 2016 and earned a Grammy nomination for Healy for his art direction. The band won Best British Group at this year’s BRIT Awards.

Healy said the success comes from the strong brotherhood within the group, which is based in Manchester.

“We’ve just grown up but we kind of (grew) up in the same room,” he said of the band, which includes guitarist Adam Hann, drummer George Daniel and bassist Ross MacDonald.

“I don’t know anybody who’s spent real time with their siblings as I’ve spent with the band,” Healy said. “Since the age 13 we’ve seen each other practically every day.”

The band has been lauded for its distinctive sound, a blend of rock, pop, R&B, electronic and other genres. Healy said that uniqueness hurt the group earlier in its career.

“The reason we couldn’t get signed by a major label in 2010 was the same was reason we got big in 2013. They came to our rehearsal room and said, ‘Well every song sounds different.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, that’s the point,’” he recalled.

“That’s not even the point — we can’t help that,” he added. “I don’t try to sound like anything, we can’t help but be influenced by music we like. … We’re like cultural magpies, anything that’s shiny, we’ll collect it.”

The tour includes more than 30 shows through June, with stops in Austin, Texas; Los Angeles; Salt Lake City; Detroit; and New York City, with a sold-out show at Madison Square arden on June 1.

Healy, whose parents are actors Denise Welch and Tim Healy, said he always knew he’d have a career in music.

“My parents did art for a living; therefore, being creative and doing something that you wanted to do was just automatically endorsed,” he said. “Music was my passion and my dad told me I could do what I wanted.”

Saved by the turd.

Hey friends so this is part of @flames-bring-a-ton-of-ash’s writing challenge. It falls into the Negan x physically disabled and mentally disabled reader categories . Also as a side note I’m physically disabled  so it was a cool new challenge for me to write some representation for myself. Thanks for letting me participate! 


Tagging: @negans-network

This fic is mainly the brain child of the light of my life @damnitdaryl she deserves so much lovin ❤

 Wordcount 2.5k

 Warnings: Negan being an asshole. Derogatory launguage around physical disability and kleptomania. Canon typical gore.

“That little turd is in there again? That’s it. She’s fucking done. From tomorrow she’s on the motherfucking wall.”

Strolling through the cell block, Negan’s whistling came to an abrupt end when he saw Simon leaning back in a chair against the stone wall. Unbridled anger flushed through Negan’s body and even though it wasn’t directly aimed at his old friend, he couldn’t fail to notice how he had startled the man. There was only one reason that he would be spending his time playing guard dog and it was grating on Negan’s last nerve.

Fallen Angels--ch. 24

Chapter 24 – Before: “Break, Burn, and Make Me New” 
Chapter Summary: In which a lot of stuff happens, which to summarize would be very spoilery. This chapter picks up action directly following those in chapter 23. This chapter could be considered a companion piece to chapters 5 and 6 which contain references/flashbacks to the events here.
Warning for some completely predictable violence. 
Rating: E for the story overall. If you are under 18, go read something else!
Characters: Loki, Sigyn, Thor, Anna (ofc), Balder (might-as-well-be-omc), Amora (a might-as-well-be ofc), Odin, Elli (a stone giantess and might-as-well-be-ofc), Cyril (omc), Tyr
Story Description: a post-apocalyptic, MCU-Norse mythos mash-up; science fiction/fantasy

I will re-blog with the tags.  I would be glad to add to or remove from the tag list at your request.

Bless you, again to @icybluepenguin, without whom this chapter would be a skeleton of its current self.

Ch. 1: Walking with unblest feet

Ch. 23: Seven for a Secret
Ch. 25: ?

 Threads began to unravel.

The book of the Norns was no longer in the main archives, but now housed in a restricted section. No access for Outlanders.

Loki found his time increasingly scripted by duties at court, and was unable to follow Amora to her estate for anything more than short trips.

Loki and Balder were overheard in a shouting match, and rumors began to circulate that Loki had threatened his brother.

Sigyn’s patients asked her to stop coming, afraid of the shadow that followed her.

Loki was sent on a restricted assignment to Utgard while Amora and Balder planned another holiday to her estate.

Sigyn paced.

Paced their suite of rooms.

Paced the public gardens.

Paced the halls.

Paced the kitchen gardens.

Paced the walls of the city.

Everyone learned to give her a wide berth.

If I were a bird, I’d be a magpie.  Sure I’d love to be a fearsome eagle or an elegant swan but I’d be a magpie.  

Magpies, common enough bird though they are are exquisitely iridescent and boast striking black and white marks.  They belong to the Corvidae family along with jays, ravens, and crows.  If parrots are the mouths, then Corvidae are the brains of the bird world.  Magpies collect shiny object to decorate their nests.  They have an eye for beauty.

Birds of Blake’s 7- Vila

Blake’s 7 characters and their associated bird familiars/ daemons/ only friends in the entire Galaxy.

The sixth in the series of You Did This One Already is Vila, and his Magpie.

What can I say? Magpies do like shiny things.

Vila’s magpie is frequently getting distracted on missions because of seeing shiny things, but she can be pretty sneaky when necessary- if no where near as quiet as Cally’s owl. Often found hanging out with Gan’s condor, or chattering at Avon’s raven from a safe distance.

Yes, I did already did do this one, since Vila having pet magpies was what started this whole thing, but the birds have since changed from pets into soul extrusions, so here is another Vila, to make sure he isn’t left out.

Of course, the problem is one magpie is bad luck, so, to borrow from @i-fought-space‘s headcanon, Vila also has a magpie tattoo, so he always has Two for Joy.

anonymous asked:

100% my fav headcannon is Ronan planning to propose to Adam but he keeps chickining out & chainsaw gets tired of his shit, steals the ring and dumps it on Adam. Adams like "what's this" & Ronan's like: "Uhhh"

I blame you for this of course, start to finish

  • This is Too Much bc first of all you have to picture ronan mad at chainsaw bc it’s actually cute as hell. He calls her a fucking chicken and says that her feathers look shit and she gets so offended but she doesn’t actually mind that much because it’s her boy, come on
  • listen though that ring becomes a plague to ronan because he so wants to propose to adam but he just??? doesn’t know how to??? every moment just feels like the wrong moment and it’s so frustrating so it’s just hanging around
  • so chainsaw takes things into her own han- talons? and one day when adam is at monmouth she digs the ring out of ronan’s room (tbh she loves this ring, she is channelling her inner magpie and it’s shiny and she loves it)
  • and adam is sitting, minding his own business when chainsaw flaps over and just lands in his lap and he’s like “hey darlin’” and chainsaw and ronan both simultaneously die (chainsaw loves adam almost as much as she loves ronan) and then he’s like “what’ve you got there?” and he plucks the ring from her beak and he’s like “a ring… what the… where did you get this?” and chainsaw, that little rascal, turns to face ronan and is like “KERAH”
  • so ronan at this point is slowly turning very red and adam doesn’t wanna assume but is also kind of dying? and he’s just like “ronan?” and ronan is like “fuck this and fuck you, you traitor-” (this directed at chainsaw ofc) “-parrish, will you marry me?” and he sounds so annoyed that outsiders would be really confused whether he’s seriously asking adam to marry him or not but of course, adam knows ronan and he’s like “um, yes”
  • chainsaw soars up to the ceiling practically cackling and they both just watch her for a moment and ronan is still watching her so he doesn’t see adam cross the room but suddenly he’s in his lap and he’s kissing him and his hand is up his shirt
  • “say it again,” adam says
    “will you marry me?” ronan replies obediently and then they’re not even kissing really, they’re just breathing into each others mouths all hot and wet bc adam is already moving his hips hard against ronan’s and has everyone forgotten chainsaw is still in the room??? can nobody just chill for a second??? can i stop going from 0 to 100 and just calm down for once in my life??? what happened to old fashioned romance??? damn
