Julian: NickNikolaiJulian! NickNikolaiJulian!  …I’m kidding
Albert: What about me?
Julian: Albert and Fab, they have been chanting you guys.

Imagine your siblings, Danny, Erin, and Jamie, embarrassing you in front your boyfriend Sonny

(A/N: Hope you enjoy this. I salvaged around half of this but I don’t think I can do anymore salvaging of the lost imagines. So I think I’ll just do some of the requests I’ve got. Which have been really great because they give me tons of creative freedom! Loads of Nick in particular actually. As well as rewriting some of the lost ones because I really liked those ideas. So I’ll try and post on Wednesdays and Sundays but I’m so busy ATM that I don’t know if that will be accurate. Just wait till my exams are over and things will be much more frequent. But I hope you enjoy this. I repurposed an old argument from another imagine and put it in this, though I added and changed parts, it was just perfect for this story and I love it. Hope you don’t mind! A Rafael one is up next, just so you know!)

“Y/N!” Your Grandfather called from the landing below.

“Yep?” You replied, hanging down from an adjacent bar above the attic hatch so your head popped out upside down.

“Can you be careful, please?” He said shooting you a disappointing look while shaking his head but you knew that he found it funny.

“Got it Pop,” You grinned pulling yourself up again using your legs, pulling yourself back in the attic.

“I’m being serious, Y/N. Your Dad will never forgive himself or me if you get hurt while he is punishing you,” He warned.

“Maybe, that’s my plan,” You chuckled as you stood back up again and started grabbing boxes again.

“I wouldn’t put it past you,” He sighed, “Hurry up and pass me a box,”

“With your back?” You said out of earshot before swinging down again and hanging upside down to look at him, “Dad will never forgive me if you hurt while I’m being punished.”

“Will you!” He warned playfully with a dramatic hand gesture.

“I’ll hand Sonny the box when he gets back,” You informed.

“I can’t believe he skipped out on going to the best Carnival of the year to hang around here with us while you’re being punished,” He commented.

Let me tell you about Puffin Rock.

Puffin Rock is a gorgeous natural history program on Netflix and Nick Jr. 

But it’s not just television. Oh, no.

Puffin Rock is the single greatest weapon in my self-care arsenal.

The stories are short, gentle, funny, and tender. 

It’s made by the team that created Song of the Sea and The Secret of Kells.

The main character is a curious little girl puffling.

It’s Irish, so all the little animals have little Irish accents.

The writers masterfully weave nature and science facts with engaging stories.

It’s narrated by Chris O’ Dowd.

The animation is a work of art.

And Baba, the baby, is laughing constantly. It’s on-demand baby laughter.


Puffin Rock won’t cure what ails you. But if you find yourself in a dark place, it will shine a sweet little light.

I have fallen in love with this show O_O

The art is beautiful, the voice cast really fits (my gosh Baba is so cute!), the music is nice and the content keeps me nice and calm before bed. Not to forget it’s all about animals, it’s educational (for the most part) and friggin Chris O’Dowd is the narrator! :D

I know it’s just a little kids show, but man, Puffin Rock has won me over.

Love.

Companion Thoughts!

-Preston Garvey: Cool guy (I don’t mind settlements), but he looks a bit like Leslie Odom Jr, which I like.

-Codsworth: So sweet. He’s just like JARVIS but sweeter… Or John Cleese…

-Piper: She’s okay but she looks too much like Jessica Jones which creeps me out in a good way.

-Nick Valentine: He has a Skyrim Voice and I like him, but those eyes. He reminds me of Carrigan from Sin City.

-Curie: She looks like Cassandra Pentaghast, which is awesome as hell.

-Deacon: That dude smokes weed or something… He also might be Job from Arrested Development.

-MacCready: Nice guy, Has a babyish face… I call him Bouncy Merc Daddy…

-Dogmeat: Pure, I shot him a couple of times on accident.

-Strong: Cool dude, but I never liked the phrase “Milk of Human kindness”.

-Danse: Stop staring at me like I owe you money or something (But like Stare at me because goddamn ☺️) Awesome guy but I threw his BOS Hood into the sea.

-Cait: My boi, One Punch Girl, but I want to comb her hair. I love her accent.

-Hancock: Ghoul Jack Nicholson or Hamilton.

-X6-88: Blade the Vampire + Blade Runner = Blade Runner 2049, aka: The Cooler Daniel.

I just watched the episode  "New Kid in the Kingdom" from the show Nella the Princess Knight and my heart was struck with how cute this new character is. Her name is Willow, she is some kind of magical farmer or something and she’s so precious, just look at her. I gotta say I personally think this cartoon’s character designs are simply magical, the color palettes they’re using make me feel so happy. 

Deleted lines from the Avengers script #516
  • Steve: Fury didn't tell me he was calling you in.
  • Tony: Yeah, there's a lot of things Fury doesn't tell you.
  • Steve: Such as...?
  • Tony: Oh, like his alternative eyepatch collection; the location of the secret fancy bathrooms; his alcoholic butterbeer recipe; that stuff about S.H.I.E.L.D. being taken over by HYDRA; where the missing socks really end up...
  • Steve:
  • Steve: Wait
  • Steve:
  • Steve: He has a recipe for alcoholic butterbeer?

I miss being sick and staying home from school as a kid. For me it didn't happen often but when it did I wasn't exactly sad because it meant I could lie on the lounge and watch kids shows all day

oh man, those were the best days. i played hooky so much as a kid and pretended to be sick just so i could sit around and watch nick jr. all morning

I’ll Try Anything Once : The Stokes - Heart In A Cage 7″

“When I said ‘I can see me in your eyes.’
You said ‘I can see you in my bed,’
That’s not just friendship that’s romance too.
You like music we can dance to..”

Artists in Action!

Meet Sarah Marino, a Background Painter on Shimmer and Shine! We sat down with her to talk about her career, what inspires her, and (of course) Kenan and Kel.

Read on to learn more about this wonderful artist!

1)    What is your role here at NAS? How long have you worked here?
I’m currently a Background Painter on the Nick Jr. show Shimmer and Shine. I just had my two year work-iversary in February!

2)    How did you get started in Animation?
After graduating from Ringling College of Art and Design in 2009, I relocated to Dallas, Texas, where I freelanced for the commercial division at Reel FX.  After freelancing for a year, I started full-time as a production assistant in February of 2011 on the Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas special. I then worked as a production coordinator on the “Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem” ride before I was promoted in April 2012 to a visual development artist on Reel FX’s second feature, The Book of Life. I had the wonderful opportunity to come out to LA and start at Nickelodeon in 2014, and it’s just been amazing. A lot of hard work, persistence, and networking helped get me to where I am today!

3)    What is your day-to-day like? Any interesting routines?
Come in, eat breakfast, check emails, queue up my Hulu, Netflix and YouTube shows, then get to work! No two days are exactly the same at my job, as I’m constantly painting fun new environments and characters drawn by the design team. Our world of Shimmer and Shine is growing, and I can’t wait for everyone to see Season 2!

As for unique routines, every morning while I’m getting ready for work, I listen to the Diane Rehm show on NPR. It helps keep me informed on what’s going on in the world outside of my happy animation bubble! During the work day, I always try to take an afternoon walk around Downtown Burbank – I get a little sun (vitamin D is necessary, people!) and it’s a great time to catch up with coworkers.

4)    What continues to motivate you to be an artist and work in animation?
Telling stories that resonate with people of all ages.  Knowing that what you’re doing matters, even if it is just a silly cartoon to some, because for others it makes a world of difference.

5)    What are your favorite parts of the job?
My coworkers! Nickelodeon really has the most wonderful, talented, and fun people in the entire industry! That, and getting to tell stories for a living. Could anything be more awesome?

6)    Tell us about a project or accomplishment that you consider to be the most significant in your career?
Speaking on a panel at San Diego Comic-Con last summer was definitely a career highlight! I loved getting to share my story with people, and how there are careers out there that will totally embrace you and your weirdness. And even though I’ve now had several credits in both TV and film, the feeling you get when you see your name on the screen is just as awesome as the very first time you saw it. I always make sure to sit through the credits of anything I watch – so many people work so hard to entertain us and I love to acknowledge them in my own way.

7)    What/who inspires you?
I’m inspired by so many things! From movies to anime, books to music – I am a nerd through and through (and I’ve got the action figure collection to prove it)! As for artists and creators who’ve inspired me:

Naoko Takeuchi, Hayao Miyazaki, JK Rowling, Annette Marnat, Pascal Campion, Yoshitaka Amano, Erwin Madrid, Studio Trigger, Chris Appelhans, Mary GrandPre, Loish, Tadahiro Uesugi, Edmond Kiraz, Tetsuya Nomura, John Singer Sargent, Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino, Kazu Kibuishi, Lisa Keene, Eyvind Earle, Paul Lasaine… and SO many more!

8)    What is your advice for aspiring artists or people interested in entering animation?
Work hard and be humble! Having a great portfolio is a way to get noticed, but being a great person is the way to get hired! Social media and networking are so very important. Don’t be afraid to put your work out there!

9)    Who was your mentor and what advice did they give you that inspired you to continue pursuing your dreams/career goals? Advice you’ve give to aspiring artists in the industry?
I’ve had so many kind, generous, and talented people help me along the way; from my parents, to my teachers, to my friends and coworkers. It’s hard to pinpoint just one person. I think that’s really important – find people you trust, that are honest with you and rooting for you, that will be there through the good times and the bad. I wouldn’t be who I am without my support network and I’m eternally grateful to everyone who has helped me get where I am today.

10)  What are your favorite hobbies?
Drawing, playing video games, watching cartoons, cosplay… not much has changed over the years!

11)  What is one of the most challenging aspects of your job?
Choosing which glitter brush is most appropriate for the occasion.

12)  What is your Spirit Animal?
Ilana from Broad City...

13)  Favorite Nickelodeon Show?
Doug and Avatar!

14)  Favorite Nickelodeon Quote or Catch Phase?
“Who loves orange soda? KEL LOVES ORANGE SODA.”

(I asked my sister what she thought of my choice, and she said: “I think that is your favorite quote. At least it def was in 1998.” Sister approved.)

15)  Favorite Snack?
Starbucks Very Berry Hibiscus.
