not just in australia or just in the ocean in the world

Summer Themes

Hi everyone!

As promised, here are some of the theme suggestions for the Reaper76 Summer Event!

We don’t want to do set “day themes” like many of these event weeks do, but we do want to provide everyone with some ideas or inspiration.  You’re not limited to these, but some of them might help you get started or get the gears turning.

  • A day at the beach: it’s hard to think of summer without a trip to the beach! Gabriel’s home city of Los Angeles has several great beaches that might give you some inspiration!
    • Some ideas: Which one immediately jumps in the water?  Do either of them like building sand castles?  How does Jack react when seeing the ocean for the first time?  
  • Setting up camp: many people like to go camping in the summer, not just for being outdoors but also to enjoy other activities like hiking, swimming, off-road driving and biking.
    • Some ideas: making smores, building campfires, watching sunrises and sunsets, stargazing
  • Hit the road, Jack: road trips are a quintessential summer pastime. Popular routes include Route 66 and California Highway 1.
    • Some ideas: how do they split driving time, and who is the bad driver?  Who gives bad directions?  How do they split music choices? Motel rooms?  What sights do they go see?
    • Some ideas: when do they take their big Americas road trip?  Who plans the route through Central America, who plans for Southern America?  Where do they visit?  What do they do in Mexico City?  Or Rio de Janiero?  Or Buenos Aires?  Or Santiago?  Do they visit the Amazon in Brazil, the Andes in Chile and Argentina, the cenotes of Mexico and Belize?  Trips across the United States are fun, but consider looking at the wonderful world beyond it - as an opportunity to explore and learn about new places and cultures.
  • We’re all golfers now: lots of sports take place in summer, including baseball, golf, swimming, surfing, and bike races
    • Soccer/fútbol: outside of the US, fútbol matches are popular in the summer.  Would Gabriel and Jack root for a specific team?
    • Lúcioball: which one wants to learn how to play Lúcioball?  Does the other come along and try to play?
  • Just Desserts: lots of great food come into season in the summer - things like watermelons, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, and especially corn (lol).  Ice cream and pies are fun treats in the summer.  Barbecued foods, hamburgers, ribs, steaks, and grilled chicken are all popular.
    • Some ideas: Favorite ice cream flavor?  Favorite fruit?  Who makes the better burger?
  • Welcome to Hollywood: it’s time for summer movie blockbusters!  What kind of movies would they want to see?  Who gets scared in the horror film?  Who wants to see the action flick?
    • Some ideas: What sights does Gabriel show Jack the first time he visits LA?  What are some of their favorite movies?  Do they visit movie sets?
  • Retirement doesn’t suit us: summer often means trips to new destinations.  Where do two supersoldiers go in their time off?  The world is wide with many cool places to visit and see!
    • Some ideas: How do they react to seeing Dorado for the first time?  Or Hanamura?  Which one is the space nerd who wants to visit the Lijiang Tower?  Which one is the history nerd who wants to see Ilios or Giza?
    • Some ideas: Does Gabriel suggest going to Mexico to visit family?  What places does he show Jack?  What foods do they eat, what music do they experience?  
    • Some ideas: who wants to take a trip to China?  Who wants to visit India?  Do they run into junkers in Australia?  What do they think when they visit Numbani in Nigeria for the first time?  How do they react to visiting Gibraltar?
  • Like the stars: did you know fireflies are not found in the western United States? How does Gabriel react to seeing fireflies in Indiana for the first time?
  • Now those are some fireworks: the 4th of July is Independence Day for the United States. Celebrated with barbecues, baseball games, neighborhood and family get-togethers, and fireworks large and small.
  • Summertime Romance: sometimes a love lasts a summer, sometimes it lasts a lifetime (or two).  How do Gabriel and Jack spend over twenty summers together?  Do they do anything special for just the two of them?

Hope these themes help spark your imaginations!   We’re super excited that so many people are interested in participating!  Please feel free to send us any questions or ideas, and best of luck to everyone creating some R76 content for the event!

Remember, the event begins July 4th and ends July 18th!  You can start submitting art, fics, graphics, and content to the tag #reaper76summerevent, or send us a link on the blog!

Have fun, and let the summer sparks fly!

15 tips for traveling alone

I recently returned from a four-month trip around Europe. I backpacked to Spain, Portugal, Italy, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Germany, Norway and The Netherlands, sometimes with my best friend, sometimes with new friends, and sometimes all alone. 

Travelling alone was one of the best experiences of my life. You’ll surprise yourself with your keen intuition, your ability to cope with a new language, your friend-making skills, your geographical bearings and overall just how much you enjoy doing whatever you want, whenever you want - from eating whenever, going wherever and doing whatever you feel like doing. Sometimes I had gelato for breakfast, once I spent six hours in a museum, a few times I slept til midday, I went to a music festival solo and I swam in the ocean morning, noon and dusk. 

But travelling alone can also be problematic and lonely if you’re not properly prepared. Here’s some easy tips that really enriched my experience travelling alone. 

1. Laptop smart
Not only is it exceedingly hard to navigate foreign transport sites from a phone, my laptop proved really valuable to me when I needed precious downtime, which was about once a week. I loaded up a portable hard drive with movies and boxsets so I could retreat into my own little world with my headphones on to watch a movie in bed when I needed a bit of ‘me’ time. 

2. Device smart
- I subscribed to Spotify Premium for $10 a month and built myself some playlists by mood - chill, happy, groovy, pensive. Then I downloaded them, so they were available offline.
- I also downloaded Tripit, an app that links with your email and builds you an automatic itinerary based on your email confirmations.
- I also downloaded, an app with offline maps and GPS location so I was never lost. I dropped a (permanent) pin on the location of my accommodation in each city so I always had my bearings. 
- Also make sure your emails are accessible on your phone - I found the Gmail app to be the best option for me, because many of my emails were available offline - valuable when I needed an address or confirmation number, which was a lot!

3. Spend smart
I went with Citibank Australia, who offer a Citibank Plus everyday account with fee-free withdrawals and fee-free transactions anywhere in the world. Shop around your banks and see what deal you can find - don’t just go with your own bank, who might smash you with withdrawal and transaction fees. Every dollar counts when you’re overseas.

4. Insure smart 
This was a non-negotiable. I actually submitted two claims after this trip - one for a lost phone and another for a change of trip. Make sure you know what you’re entitled to before you commit to a policy - valuables up to $1,000 is essential if you’re taking that laptop or smartphone!

5. Pack smart
A few quick tips:
- Don’t take anything that needs ironing. You’ll never wear it, trust me. 
- Bring your runners so you can walk miles during the day. It really made all the difference for me - on days I wore them I could walk up to 30,000 steps without any pain whatsoever. 
- Bring your flip flops for showering. Tinea is rampant in hostel world!
- Bring exercise gear. I always moved from place to place in my exercise gear - it’s easy to sleep in on long haul bus-rides, and you don’t want to wear your 15kg pack with bad shoes - it hurts your ankles!
- Pack, then don’t take half the things you packed. Every little thing is a lot heavier on your back in the blistering heat, trust me. And they have toiletries in other countries too, you know!

6. Disembark smart
- Always carry some cash with you for the country you’re going to - for me, it was mostly euros. It was essential for my commute from the airport, and when I forgot to arm myself with currency, I was left disoriented, tired and wandering around trying to find an ATM while not getting robbed.
- It’s also worth Googling bus or train information before you board your plane, so you know the fastest and cheapest way to your accommodation before you land. Taxis are tempting - but will run your budget dry quickly. 

7. Book smart 
- Book directly through the website, not the compare-sites - it’s cheaper! This includes airlines, bus companies and train websites, and the hostel websites when it comes to booking your accommodation.
- Also, always book your bits and bobs in a private browsing section. Airline websites have algorithms that send the ticket prices up if they log your IP looking at a price a couple times to create a sense of urgency in you.
- But don’t feel like you need to map your whole plan out before you even leave home - I purposefully left gaps in my plan and life filled them in. I stayed with europeans I’d met overseas, travelled with new friends and went to countries that I had no plans on going to, like Norway (one of my favourite countries in the end!) 

8. Backup smart
After every country I backed up my phone to my laptop and my laptop to my hard drive. If you trust the Cloud, backup to there too. It is devastating to lose travel photos - they’re about the most important thing you own when you travel. 

9. Stay smart
- is the go-to site for hostels. If I was nervous about my choice, I’d usually book one night in and extend my stay if it felt right. I always read plenty of reviews for each place, particularly taking notice of the location rating. Cleanliness in the bathroom, uncomfortable beds or a tiny kitchen were things I could deal with. A 30 minute commute to the city was something that wore me down pretty quickly.
- Speaking of the kitchen - that ‘free’ shelf in the fridge is your best friend - use it!

10. Be alone smart
- Find a local pub and go and sit at the bar with a good book. Strike up a conversation with the bartender - they are probably bored out of their mind! Bartenders have a wealth of cultural knowledge about their city that you’d never find on Trip Advisor - ask for their hot tips on eating, drinking, shopping and the sights. I asked each bartender to draw all over a fold-up map in each city so I had a visual reference - it helped me pair things together that were close by so I could plan my days better.
- Also, do the walking tour on your first day. They are usually free (the tour guides live on tips) and they are the most useful introduction to a city - not to mention hugely interesting.

11. Commute smart
If you’re wondering if you should walk or get a metro, walk. If you’re wondering whether you should get the metro or a bus, bus. The metro is fast, but you see nothing. 

12. Dress smart
- If you’re spending the day exploring, wear one less thing than you think you need to. It’s awful being hot and sweaty, but easy to speed up if you’re feeling a little nippy. Plus, your thighs will thank you when they can crush steel between your rippling muscles!
- Runners are pretty much always the best option - you’ll double your productivity with them on. 

13. Mini-pack smart
Your daypack should contain:
- headphones
- a book
- a city map (to ask the locals to circle their favourite places on!)
- a knife and fork (plastic, for impromptu lunches in the park or by the water)
- a water bottle. Water is your best friend between all that exercise you didn’t realize you were doing (win!), the salty restaurant meals you’re eating (yum) and the drinking (inevitable). Drink it in litres - otherwise you’ll be perpetually dehydrated and wondering why you feel so tired. 

14. Wash, dry and iron smart
It’s inevitable you’ll have to wash atleast once a week. Face it, pretty boy. Mama aint here to help you now. 
- Every night, wash the underwear you wore that day in the shower. It takes five seconds, stops them from stinking up the place (we all know undies get the most dirty) and fresh undies are one of life’s little pleasures!
- You can iron out major creases by wetting a towel and wiping the clothing while it’s on you (it’ll dry), or bringing the item on a coat hanger into the shower area (the steam makes the creases drop out) 
- Splurge occasionally and get laundry done. Most hostels do it for less than $10, and having fresh clean dry clothing one of those amazing little things that lifts your spirits when you’re out of your comfort zone. 

15. Socialise smart
Talk to people! Everyone is the best version of themselves when they are travelling. Strike up conversations with people you would never usually speak to, especially those travelling alone as well. Ask them their story, compare itineraries, go on adventures together and who knows? You might just make a friend for life. 



I am grateful to live in such a beautiful country. I always find myself taking South Australia for granted, thinking it’s boring and there’s nothing here for me. But just getting in my car and driving for that extra hour I discovered such an incredibly beautiful place down south. Waking up before the sun, I sat on the top of those stairs and waited until the sun and earth did its thing and rotated a little, and that’s where my day began. I am so lucky to be able to sit and unwind, breathing in the salty sea air and taking in the serenity.

If you have been feeling uninspired and down in the dumps about life, seriously just take the time out to do something. Wake up at 5am, get in the car or jump on the bus, or just walk outside your front door. Be grateful and appreciative for this amazing world that we live on, it will open up a whole new realm of consciousness and awareness and leave your mind feeling clear and refreshed. 

Why aren’t people utilizing the goldmine of “Humans Are the Weird Ones” posts on this site for inspiration for Voltron content?? I need a Sgt. Stabby the Space Roomba aboard the Castle of Lions, STAT!!

…okay but seriously, a lot of the content from the “Humans Are Space Australians” discussion can actually really apply to the Voltron universe!

  • So far, we’ve never seen a planet with as wide a range of weather conditions as ours. Some are hot, some are cold, some are forested, some are turbulent, but they all seem to have one predominant weather condition
  • The Galra Empire was absolutely floored by Shiro’s performance in the Arena, which gives credence to some of the discussion headcanons about humans being pretty durable compared to most races and/or humans being one of only a few races that have a high adrenaline response to danger
  • We haven’t seen any body modifications beyond some ear piercings on any alien species as far as I know, so we could still get to watch an absolutely horrified Allura as Shiro explains what a tattoo is
  • Sgt. Stabby is the lovechild of Pidge and Keith and you can’t possibly convince me otherwise
  • Seriously, why aren’t people writing about the Galra trying to invade earth?? Imagine the potential. Bears. Imagine bears attacking Galra scouts. Imagine the doomed party sent to conquer Australia. Imagine the vessels sent down to explore the depths of the ocean that never come back up again. Imagine Galra absolutely baking in the desert because they have fur, dammit. Just… Imagine
  • Also imagine Galra up against human military forces. Imagine the Galra being absolutely shocked because they were completely unprepared for Scorched Earth Policy. Imagine them being horrified that humans would fire nuclear weapons on their own planet!! purely to make sure that the Galra can’t stay.
  • Imagine aliens being utterly perplexed by Pidge’s glasses
  • If milkshakes are such a horrifying concept to Alteans, I wonder what other earth delicacies would make Allura and Coran want to go throw up. I’m picturing seafood, especially. We do literally eat fish eggs. I imagine that would probably seriously gross out the Alteans
  • Braces are a horrifying concept, and I need to see one of the alien friends reacting properly to hearing about them
  • What if hair dye simply isn’t a thing in space? Imagine the aliens being really confused when the white part of Shiro’s hair suddenly becomes as dark as the rest of it
  • What if L’appel du vide, the call of the void, that random desire to do something objectively horrifying such as stabbing your friend or jumping off a cliff… what if that only happens to humans?
  • Smoking is such a weird concept, objectively speaking. Like, wait, you know that this is likely to kill you eventually, yet you continue to do it?? Cue a very concerned Uncle Coran making each Paladin promise to never ever smoke. Shiro doesn’t have the heart to tell him that he did indeed try a few cigarettes in the past (though he never regularly smoked), so he just nods and sincerely promises Coran that he will never smoke in the future
  • What if humans are the only ones to space out and/or have temporary memory lapses (aka “brain farts”)?
  • Picture Pidge doing “Rubber Duck Debugging” where she’s talking through some buggy code and telling everything to some small inanimate object (maybe a plant). Now picture Pidge finally figuring out what was wrong, fixing the error, and going on to do something else. Picture Allura or Coran watching this entire process, utterly perplexed
  • And much, much more!

I think you get the point. Now, go forth into the world, make some “Humans Are the Weird Ones” Voltron content, and tag me in it so I can see it!

I had no idea what I was going to do for this challenge until I sat down to write it tonight. Even then, at times, I had no idea what I was doing until it slowly evolved. I haven’t written smut in over a month, so I apologize for this. I hope you guys enjoy it. I threw in a little special line from one of my current obsessions. Some of you will catch it. I hope it makes you smile.

Top 9 Animated Series of 2017


Here we are again.  Like the Doctor, the year has regenerated.  A new day and a new start.  I can honestly say that 2017 did not suck as much as 2016 did…but not because of a lack of trying.  Mostly because I was braced for it this time.  2016 was a surprise slap in the face, 2017 was an expected slap in the face.  As we in the Culinary world say, Prep is everything.

SOOOOO…Now your Disney Wizard gets to name his top 9 favorite shows from 2017 and…This was HARD.  2017 turned out to be a VERY good year for Animated Television, and I had a hard time narrowing down my picks.  If your favorite show didn’t make it on this list…It’s probably because I ran out of room, the categories were THAT narrow.  

Before I kick off…Let’s give my two honorable mentions: 

Didn’t make the list because I try very hard to keep it all-ages appropriate, and Samurai Jack just wasn’t.  It was still VERY good though.  

Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir has had some freaking AMAZING episodes this year, and very likely would have been my number two choice for the 2017 favorite Animated Series…If even one episode had aired in a legal format in the US.  WHAT THE HECK NETFLIX?!?!  YOU PROMISED US NEW EPISODES?!?!  So yes, some UH-MAZING episodes of this show have aired…Overseas.  Not one is available for legal viewing in the U.S.  So…I could not in good conscience give it a spot on this list, because I DON’T ENCOURAGE PIRACY.  Watch it when it bothers to actually show up on Netflix. Aslan willing it will be on my 2018 list.

And now, the ACTUAL list: 

9) Steven Universe

Steven Universe fell into a weird place this year.  While the episodes were just as amazing as they always are (seriously, this show is so good, but it starts out so slowly) there were so FEW episodes that aired in 2017 and that knocked it down a few pegs on the list.  Said episodes were of EXTREMELY high quality, and I heartily recommend this show to anyone who hasn’t seen it, but the low number of new episodes is the reason for its low placement on the list.  

Available On: Cartoon Network App, Hulu (Not current, older episodes only)

8) Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters

Here’s a surprising little gem I was not expecting.  Very much a spiritual successor to The Spectacular Spider-man (No surprise, considering one of the showrunners is Vic Cook, one of the showrunners on SpecSpidey) this show is an absolute delight.  The first few episodes feel almost clichéd but as the story unfolds, you begin to realize that the show is actually Zagging when you think it’s Zigging.  Throw in some amazing voice work from the Incomparable Keith David, Wil Wheaton, Kate Mulgrew, and the last role of the Late Miguel Ferrer and you have a recipe for an EXCELLENT show.  

Available On: Netflix Original

7) Voltron: Legendary Defender


That’s a Trope.  Thankfully not a trope on this show, but it IS a trope.  Voltron is such a good show, and each season definitely furthers the narrative.  If I had a complaint, it’s that the seasons are often too darn short.  (One is like, six episodes, seriously) but they do churn them out fairly quickly.  I think we get a new season every three months or so.  Check it out, it’s fun. 

Available On: Netflix Original

6) Milo Murphy’s Law

Words do not begin to describe this show.  THIS show is a show that is SO ridiculous, and KNOWS how ridiculous it is, and it just RUNS WITH IT!  Time Traveling Pistachio Vendors from the future?  Yep.  A giant dinosaur made of ham? Yes.  Pistachio Trees that try to take over the world using an Expy of Doctor Who (the show, not the character) YES.  A peach that exists in its own time loop?  WEIRD AL YANKOVIC!  If you want a show that is just BALLS TO THE WALL INSANE, THIS IS YOUR SHOW!  

5) Star Wars: Rebels

This is the final season of Star Wars: Rebels, and Darker and Edgier doesn’t begin to describe it.  I’m on the edge of my seat awaiting the conclusion of the season, and all bets are off, because (SPOILERS) the only guaranteed survivors are Chopper and Hera.  They’re the only characters whom we’ve seen existing post-Return of the Jedi.  So place your bets now…

Available On: Disney XD, Disney XD App

4) Nico and the Sword of Light

This little gem of a show caught me completely off guard.  A test pilot version of the show was made available a few years back on Amazon, and you could vote to see if you wanted more.  I voted, but didn’t expect anything, and for at least 4 years I got nothing.  Then, out of the blue, this show in its entirety arrived on Amazon.  With a new, reworked pilot, and a hopeful, pervasive storyline, this show arrived just in time to cure a bout of depression that I wrestled with during the summer.  The plot is something between Avatar The Last Airbender and Lord of the Rings.  Jim Cummings narrates and plays a few bit characters, and the incomparable Steve Blum is the villain.  The story is completely original, which is rare these days, and follows the last champion of humanity, and the only one who can save humans from dying out entirely.  I’m a sucker for Hope plots, and this story is about as full of Hope as one can get.  

Available On: Amazon Original

3) The Deep

The Further Adventures of the Nekton family, this is absolutely one of my favorite shows because the premise alone is AMAZING.  An Australian-Canadian Co-Production the show follows the Nektons, a family of deep sea explorers searching for Lost Lemuria.  Along the way they encounter the mysterious creatures, myths, and legends of the Deepest parts of the Ocean.  The Second Season even had episode premises suggested by the fans.  Of which there are MANY as this is THE MOST POPULAR ANIMATED SERIES IN AUSTRALIA AND EUROPE.  It also comes highly recommended by one Disney Wizard (This Guy)  

Available On: Netflix in the U.S.

2) Ducktales (2017)

You had to see this coming.  I’m ‘The Disney Wizard’ for Pete’s sake.  My love of the Disney Afternoon is WELL documented.  It’s what attracted me to Disney in the first place, and this show…Well…It’s flat out how you do an update.  THIS IS HOW YOU REBOOT A SHOW.  All other folks planning reboots should take notes.  I ADORE the OG 1987 Ducktales.  And I love THIS version of the show more.  SERIOUSLY.  Check it out, you will not be disappointed. 

Available On: Disney XD, Disney XD App

And the #1 Disney Wizard Top show of 2017 is…

1) Trollhunters

No one who knows me should be surprised by this one.  I’ve made no secret that this is not just my favorite show of the year, but also my second favorite show of ALL TIME (#1 being Disney’s Gargoyles if you were curious.) This show is INCREDIBLE.  It’s everything that I look for in a show.  It’s got GORGEOUS animation, incredible voice work, excellent storytelling.  Guierrmo Del Toro is the mastermind behind this show, and it SHOWS.  It’s an incredible action-adventure series that is only about to expand into an entire Animated Universe (Called the Tales of Arcadia) in 2018 with another season of Trollhunters proper, and a new show called 3-Below, about an alien princess in exile.  Fantasy Kitchen Sink, eat your heart out, Trollhunters is quite simply, a masterpiece.  

Available On: Netflix Original

And there you go.  I hope you guys enjoy this list!  I’m looking forward to another year of GREAT animation.  PEACE!

What if there was a species that got drunk on water?


Everyone’s always asking them if they want water and they are just appalled

They go out to eat with their human friend and the waiter brings them their complementary water and they’re just, “They just give you water?”

You leave them alone in your house telling them there’s water in the fridge and they’re just, “??? I’m allowed to get drunk while you’re out??”

You come back to them with their head under the faucet

They gasp when they see the big packs of water bottles just, “They come in packs that big?!”

Or they see the big jugs and just, “You can get a keg for that cheep?!”

They ask what those big “cheese wheel looking things” on the hill are and you tell them they’re reservoirs and are full of water and they just OoO

You tell them the ocean is water and they just, “WTF IS YOUR PLANET?!”

They tell others of their kind about the world where it rains water and if it gets cold enough, the water turns solid and falls in either a hard form or a softer form that can be used to make delicious treats using what the humans call “flavored syrup”

They’d get so drunk on snow cones, omfg

Snow cones and things like lemonade and Kool-aid would be like cocktails to them

Summary: Cuddling w/ Grayson

Warnings: Not really any, it’s short, some may call it “fluff” 😌

Word Count: 759 (told you it was short, lol)

I had woken because the warm sun was glistening on my face through the wispy curtains, with the slight breeze allowing bits of sunlight to peep through the transparent curtains and reach my face. I groaned in response to the rising sun, my body sore from the day before, I remember I had gone hiking on one of the beautiful sceneries near the house I was staying at.

I rolled over to the other side of the bed and was immediately stopped in my path by a muscular, sun kissed, dimpled back. I was surprised to see Grayson slumped in our bed, he usually woke before anyone else, wanting to start the day off and make his famous pancakes or plan the day out for adventures awaiting our presence.

I layed in amazement at his beauty, something I did on a daily basis because I could not believe he was mine. He was something else, with his constant yearning for adventure, whether it was trying something new, something completely different and crazy like scuba diving in the coral reefs, or going for walks no matter the hour of day, just wanting to get out and enjoy the world that pulls us both to the freeing state of mind. His attention to details always amazed me, the way he always noticed something as simple as the shape of the clouds or the color of the sky, or even the sounds of the birds chirping; this was a characteristic we both shared, always admiring the outside world with the freeing and relaxing vibes it had to offer. And his smile was oh so precious, every time he shined those pearly whites he sent chills through my body, with the vibrance of his happiness being displayed made me happier by the second. And of course Grayson’s body was just a bonus of being in a relationship with him, he has more muscles than the ocean. He’s sculpted like an ancient god. When we have our daily cuddle sessions, I become engulfed within his meaty arms, being able to feel every bump and dip of his torso, loving and being able to take these moments to appreciate his structure that he works so hard on.

I guess I had been so lost in my thoughts and admiring everything about the man I love so dearly, the one I believe to be my destined soulmate, my lover; because he had started giggling in response to my admiration. My thoughts quickly changed, I wonder how long he was awake, considering I was laying there for at least a couple hours; his eyes squinting with the sunlight reflecting off of our white sheets.


“What’s so funny?” I questioned, completely confused at what I was missing.

“I’ve been laying here in disbelief that your mine,” he answered in complete honesty.

“It’s just, I can’t believe your mine.” He added, pulling me in to cuddle.


I started giggling, as he pulled me into his warm body, at the coincidence that our thoughts were in synch, but about one another.

We laid within each other’s loving arms as the sun rose, exposing our tangled bodies, completely. His arms rested across my stomach, with my fingers tracing his veins; our legs intertwined and my head resting on his curled bicep. I could lay here forever, just the two of us.

After what seemed like a couple of minutes, but was really an hour, his phone buzzed, he groaned leaving my backside to glance at the notification. Ethan’s name popped up, with a text saying, “u awake? what’re we doing today?” With that he returned to my body resting his free hand in between my thighs, where it  was warmest, his fingers locked with mine, he placed a kiss on my shoulder blade, making my skin tingle at his touch. Laying in each others loving arms for the rest of the morning until Ethan was blowing up both of our phones, wanting to go out and do some more adventuring, the entire purpose of coming all the way out here to Australia. But we continued to rest as the sun left our balcony doors, rising higher as the hours passed until our stomachs protested to be filled.

When we finally rose out of the wrinkled bed and exited our room we met with Ethan’s grouchy attitude and planned out the rest of our day, later ending our adventure how it started, in each others arms of the beautiful land here in Australia.

Um… okay. this is my first EVER fanfic, I love both Ethan and Grayson, but I am in Gray’s lane… as of right now lol. I hope anyone who reads this likes it and thank you for actually reading it. there should be more to come. I am going to try and write at least one a month, so yeah😊

for my secret santa @louiechristmas is just the loveliest, i hope you have the best day ever <3

not even the gods above (1/1 | 25,251 | Not Rated)

The thing is, though, this isn’t good enough for Harry. Sure, he has the rest of his life to be a notable king, but he wants to be notable now. He wants to bring the two kingdoms together and he wants to do it early on, wants to be the one to facilitate the merge until it seems like the two kingdoms were one all along. He doesn’t want to wait, but everyone he’s turned to thinks waiting is the right choice, so he supposes he has to trust them.

That is, of course, until a declaration of war from the Kingdom of Tomlinson shows up at his palace.

Chestnuts Roasting… And All That by @elsi-bee (1/1 | 46,760 | Mature)

Louis is apparently the only person at his new job who is single as can be. It’s not a big deal to just tell his new colleagues that he has a boyfriend, right? Until he has to make this imaginary boyfriend magically appear at the office holiday party. Cue fake relationship antics with a certain someone who is more than willing to play along.

Staring Across the Room by @allwaswell16 (1/1 | 26,783 | Explicit)

Harry Styles has a great life. He’s a children’s librarian at the New York Public Library, he’s got wonderful friends, and he loves cooking, green tea, yoga, and his collection of bow ties. He doesn’t mind that his life seems a little structured, maybe even a little boring. But when Louis Tomlinson joins the library staff as the new Installation Coordinator, things become a lot less predictable. Louis gets under his skin right from the start, bossing Harry around, making noise during story time, and eating the last cupcake in the staff lounge. Louis may be almost offensively attractive, but Harry will not be succumbing to Louis Tomlinson’s charms, even if the rest of the library staff have.

If Only in My Dreams by @jupiter-lou (1/1 | 13,914 | Teen And Up)

Harry considered the situation silently for a moment. “Listen, I’m only going home through New Year’s Day. If you wanted to, you could come home with me for the week?” The sentence morphed into a question as he watched Louis’s face drop open with surprise.

“I couldn’t do that, Harry,” Louis dismissed, eyes widen with incredulity. “We barely know one another, and I could never intrude on your family time like that!”

“What better way to get to know me than to spend time with the people who shaped me into who I am today?”

OR the one where Harry’s new flatmate, Louis, needs a place to spend Christmas, so he invites him to spend it with his family. When they arrive, everyone thinks they’re dating.

Has the Ocean Lost Its Way by @fullonlarrie (1/1 | 28,356 | Explicit)

Louis and Liam are professional surfers who have been traveling the world together for years. Now they travel with Liam’s pro-surfer girlfriend Amelia and their baby Vivian. They’re in Manly Beach, Sydney to compete in the 2017 Australia Open of Surfing when Louis meets Harry, a freelance surf photographer working for Surfer Magazine.

Louis wonders if his nomadic lifestyle will keep him single indefinitely or if there’s someone out there who’ll fit in with his little makeshift family.

it’s crazy, how (we found each other) (1/1 | 8,119 | Teen And Up)

“I know you can do it,” he cuts him off confidently. “You’ll do it. Everyone falls down, Louis. And they get up, and try again. Do this, win this for yourself. Don’t be selfless all the blasting time. Try your best without thinking people see and they judge.” He points at Louis’ chest. “It’s in here and you know it.”

Louis gapes at him, he wants to reach out and crunch him into a hug, but he refrains.

A one-shot based on One Direction’s ‘Home’ on how Harry and Louis fall in love in the Judge’s House.

Gundam Wing World Map: Episodes 1-17

The following map shows the travel routes and activity of the five Gundam pilots and the traveling circus group. This does not show activities of other characters, though.


First, I took this map:

and promptly took a look at all the Japanese and went “NOPE. IMMA DO IT LATER”. I instead color coded the pilots’ routes. I didn’t color the circus route, because I was dealing with a new and strange program (Microsoft Visio) and couldn’t be bothered to fumble my way through it again. So we have this:

01 (Heero) is red, 02 (Duo) is green, 03 (Trowa) is yellow, 04 (Quatre) is blue, and 05 (Wufei) is orange.

Now, what follows is the map completely translated. The routes for each pilot are separated and their activities are in numbered order. You can match the numbers on their lists below to the numbers on the map. Aso included in the following list are “other locations”, or places that are written on the map, but may not have been visited by our pilots.

Some locations weren’t given exact names, just names of regions. The “Yangtze River Estuary”, for example, so a rough estimation was made based on current world locations (assuming these named locations still exist in the AC timeline). Some locations were just a dot on the map with few identifying words and no identifying landmarks, so a guess was made. The Maganac base, for example, is just a dot in in the Middle East, so I had to guess, based on current 2015 maps, where the base may be located.


Who was the busiest pilot during episodes 1-17? Drumroll please…Trowa Barton, with 14 locations! Who took his sweet time deciding his missions? Duo Maxwell with 8 locations. Who was the most erratic and all over the place? Mr Chang Wufei who circled the globe, jumping around in one continuous path and visited nearly every continent except South America, Australia, and Antarctica and was a pain to write out since he didn’t really meet up with the others much.

Just Forget the World (E.D.) Pt. 1

Summary: Stella’s world changed the moment she met Ethan on a beach in Australia, but she’ll never know just how much. Life became more vibrant and to say the least, entertaining. But, with the dramatic and fun loving boy came frustrations and complications. Can they be overcome or will the rare turbulent waves finally drag them down?

A/N: This is my first fic, I hope you enjoy this fist bit. I have a whole idea of where it will go and the twists that will come. Hang in, cuz it’s going to be a ride.

Originally posted by dolantwinsappreciation

It was cold outside of the truck as Ethan drove through the snow. The night sky made the road hard to see, being only lit by the moon and the headlights of the car. Outside of the truck, the world was quiet and calm. The wooded countryside of Jersey was blanketed it a beautiful glistening layer of snow.

To those outside, it would be peaceful and inviting. But inside of Ethan’s truck it was anger and frustration.

“Ethan, Please! Do you not see what she’s trying to do? She sent you a photo of herself in her underwear! You think friends do that? Let me send Gray a photo of my new booty shorts and get his opinion!” I spit out at him anger.

“That is not the same and you know it Stella! Hannah is just a friend, you know this! You were there when we met!” Ethan retorted while grasping the steering wheel tighter, knuckles beginning to turn a pale white. He was angry that this was even a fight. Sure, Hannah probably shouldn’t have sent that picture, but it wasn’t his fault and it’s not like he was into her anyway. He loved Stella, even if he still hadn’t actually spoke the words.

“The fact that you can’t see what her motives are…” I said before stopping when I saw a dark figure approaching us through the windshield. I strained my eyes to try to make out what it was, but in the dark of the woods and the snow cutting down the visibility, it was near impossible to see what it was coming up on us. Ethan hadn’t seen it yet, he was to focused on what he was going to say to defend himself. 

Suddenly the moon light reflected off the figure coming closer with each passing moment. I let out a scream that made my toes go numb the moment I realized what the figure was. I screwed my eyes shut and was consumed by darkness.

I opened my eyes, feeling the warm sun melting onto my skin. I couldn’t believe I was finally here, feet dug deep into the warm sand. It was 8am in Australia and I was the only person at Whale Beach. Ever since I can remember, I has wanted to visit my family here and now I was standing in the sand on the beautiful island. My long brown hair was wavy in the island humidity and blew around in the light Australian summer breeze.

It’s so quiet here right now’, I thought as I made my way closer to the waters edge. I wanted to come here and draw the early morning beach and take some photos. I loved being creative and being here in Australia did nothing but fuel that for me.

I walked up to the water placing my toe in to test the temperature. It made no sense to me that back home it was winter and here it was 8am and felt like summer! This place was heaven and I never wanted to leave. As I walked the shore to find the perfect place to sit and draw, I saw a small beach that was not open sand like most, but it was a beach of large flat rocks. Boulders sat at the waters edge as the warm ocean water crashed on them and then retraced back only to whip back again. It was beautiful, it was peaceful, it was perfect.

I made my way over to the small “beach”, if it could even be called that, and placed my things on one of the dry rocks just far enough away from the water that I wouldn’t have to worry about getting wet. I pulled out my notebook and my assortment of pencils and pastels from my bag and began drawing each small detail of what I saw before me. 

Orange Blue sky that made the ocean glisten as if it were not water on the horizon but actually billions of small diamonds. I drew the rocks and the water as it crashed around them and sprayed water into the air. I was so focused on each detail that I hadn’t realized I had been on the rock for about an hour. It wasn’t until I heard someone speak that I finally snapped out of my trance. 

“Excuse me, but this is a private beach and I would appreciate it if you and all the other girls could respect our privacy and not hangout around our house and follow us.” A deep voice said from behind me. 

Were they kidding me?! I mean, if this is a private beach, my bad, I didn’t know and thats my fault. But did whoever this was just make it seem like I was stalking them?! I slowly turned my head around to see whoever it was that just agitated me and pulled me away from what was looking like a great landscape drawing.

When I turned, my eyes were just feet away from a dark haired young man who was crouched down to my level. His hair was disheveled making it look as though he had just woken up and his hazel eyes were reflecting a beautiful green color. I wanted to freeze that moment and sketch his eyes so that I could always remember how bright they were. But then I remembered how aggravated I was by his words.

“I’m sorry if I’m on a private beach, but I have no idea who the hell you are and the fact that you basically called me a stalker is insulting.” I spoke to the boy causing his thick dark brown brows to contort in an unnatural way.

“You’re American.” he said more as an affirming statement and less as a question.

“Yes I am. Are you now going to assume I’m a stalker who came here to find you from the states? Get over yourself, I’m visiting my family. Now if you don’t mind, I’ll pack up my art supplies and leave your precious beach.” I hadn’t realized that I’d spoke so quickly until I was almost gasping for air.

I began picking up my pencils and pastels when I saw the boy reach for my notebook.

“You drew this?” the boy asked. His voice warming my body in a way that the sun couldn’t.

“Yes, I did as a matter of fact. I came over here to draw because I liked the view. But now I think the moments been ruined. Can I have my picture back?” I asked, reaching out my hand towards him with an annoyed look on my face as I stood. 

He began to stand, still looking at my drawing and then up at the view. He repeated this multiple times before finally snapping out of whatever trance he was in. “Sorry.” he mumbled as he handed me back my notebook, his eyes looking at the rock below our feet.

“I’m sorry if I was a dick just now. My brother and I are on a vacation and we have a lot of girls who know where we’re at. They just keep showing up and we could end up having to leave this house. When I saw you, it was just my first thought…” he trailed off finally looking me in the eyes, his eyes almost pleading for forgiveness.

“Listen, I don’t know why you’ve got a bunch of girls showing up to your house all the time. Or if I even care to know, but thats your business. Thank you for your apology, I think I’ll be going now.” I said as I grabbed my bag, slung it over my shoulder and began walking past him, our shoulders just barely bumping. 

“Ethan!” I heard the boy shout towards me just as I stepped off the rock onto the small strip of sand beach trying to make my way back toward where I had come. I stopped when I heard him speak and slowly turned around to face him.

“I’m sorry?” I asked.

“Ethan, my name is Ethan.” the beautiful dark haired boy said.

Ethan, a name that fit the boy perfectly. Somehow it was just as arrogant and jockey as he seemed but also almost as soft as his need for forgiveness.

“Thats nice.” I said as I turned back around and began walking away. “Maybe if I bump into you again, you’ll be more deserving of my name. Good bye Ethan.” I threw at him over my shoulder as I lazily waved my hand in the air.

I wanted nothing to do with Ethan, but something deep inside me told me that wouldn’t be the last time I saw the hazel eyed boy.

Fic: Sleepless in Starling

Sleepless in Starling

Oliver slammed his fist on the sandy beach of Lian Yu in frustration. He had missed his goddamn boat.

After months of planning for this moment with Anatoly, putting on the wig and beard, arranging for a fishing boat to be in the area at just the right time – Kovar had showed up to foil his plans.

And now Oliver was not going home. And he was stranded on Lian Yu AGAIN. Purgatory was the correct moniker for this place.

If only Kovar had shown up a few minutes earlier, then Oliver could have defeated him in time. If only Oliver had been speedier in killing him. Then he would be on a boat on his way back to Starling City.

He sat on the beach for two sleepless days – staring at the ocean, lost in his “if only” thoughts. Then, he pulled himself back together and went about the business of surviving. He had gotten off this island before, and he would do it again.

What The Stars See  (Bucky x Reader)

Summary: Bucky writes about his adventures with the love of his life as they travel the world together. 

Warnings: Swearing, mentions of sad pasts, otherwise just fluff! (for bloody once)

This fic can be read alone, although it is part one of my new series which you can read more about here!

I’m really excited about this series, and I hope you guys enjoy it too! 

Requests and tag list are open :)


I never thought I’d get here. I remember lying on that stale mattress, staring at four moulded walls and knowing that my only release would come with my final breath. Or that’s what I thought, at least. Times have changed since then. Steve found me, protected me despite everything, and gave me the life I have today. Those days of being painfully alone are just a memory, haunting my dreams, yet so far away when it really matters. Most importantly, I have her. Y/N. Looking back, I think that I’ve written about her in every page of my many journals since I met her.

I was going to stop writing in these, you know. I had no real reason to jot down everything I remembered, instead looking forward to the memories that were sure to come. Y/N convinced me otherwise; she said that when we’re old we can give these journals to our kids, and even our grandkids, telling them all about the years we’ve spent together, and the years we are yet to. I cried when she said that. To hear that she thinks about starting a family together as much as I do means more to me than I can put into words.

Our first anniversary is tomorrow, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve never celebrated a year’s anniversary before, and I think I’ve driven the whole team mad with my ramblings about it; what can I say? This past year with her has been the best of my life, and that’s coming from a guy who’s lived a hundred of them.

Coming up with a gift idea has been difficult. I’d give her the stars if I could, but they’re already in her eyes. I’d give her the moon, but she already holds its grace. I’d give her the sun, but it already shines for her.

I think I searched near enough every shop in Manhattan before I got the perfect idea. Well, I guess she gave it to me.

Bucky watched Y/N as she gazed upon the stars, lost in her own head. He loved moments like this, where he could just stand back and admire her, like a piece of art in a gallery.

“Isn’t it beautiful, Buck?”

“You sure are, doll.”

Y/N laughed, punching Bucky’s arm softly. “Not me, Buck. The stars.”

Bucky chuckled under his breath, unable to contain his smile as she spoke. Her voice was like velvet to him, soft and smooth. He loved to listen to her voice.

“I wish I could see what they do. Every ocean, every mountain, every sunset; from anywhere in the world. Can you imagine that? To be able to see the whole world?”

My heart ached as she spoke. I know all about Y/N’s desire to travel, to see the beauty in a world that had treated her so cruelly. HYDRA had stripped her of everything she had, confining her like a bird in a cage, unable to spread its wings. She was going to do so much, and they fucking took it from her.

It was at that moment, under the stars, that I thought of the perfect gift. I may not be able to give her the stars, or the moon, or the sun; but maybe I can give her the world.


One of the greatest lessons Y/N has taught me, of which there are many, is that happiness is not selfish. During my younger years, I chased happiness like a dog does its tail. I searched for it in bars, in women, in armies. Ultimately, my search was fruitless. It wasn’t until I met Y/N that I realised all those years were wasted, because my happiness came with hers. It came with the smile on her face when I make her favourite breakfast, or the giggles that escape her mouth when I make a joke. So, when we sat together on our bed this morning, my cheeks hurt from smiling so damn much, and yet I couldn’t care less as we exchanged anniversary gifts.

I would never admit this anywhere else, but only Y/N reads these journals and I trust her with my life; I cried when she showed me her gift. She had lifted the left sleeve of her (my) t-shirt that hung over her shoulders, unveiling a red star that lay stark against her skin, the area still looking sore. Do you know how much that means to me? That she etched the most painful part of my past into her own skin? It means everything.

She cried too when she opened the manila envelope I had given her, with her name on it in my neatest handwriting and a heart beside it.

Bucky… I don’t… are these plane tickets?”

Bucky grinned as realisation dawned on Y/N’s face.

“You’re taking me to Toronto? I’ve always wanted to go there!”

Y/N went to hug Bucky, but he lightly held her wrists and brought her backwards just slightly, still smiling uncontrollably despite her obvious confusion.

“Yes, doll, I’m taking you to Canada. And then, I’m taking you all around Europe, and Asia, and Australia, and Africa, and South America, and then back home. You’re gonna see what the stars do, baby.”

There’s a huge sense of pride at knowing that I’m the one who made her so happy today. Even more so, I can’t shake the utter joy I feel in the moments like this morning where I realise that I mean as much to her as she does to me. I keep looking down to her left arm; infected, yet so stunning. I still admire how she can make anything beautiful, no matter how ugly, and I often wonder if that’s why my life has become so much brighter since she entered it.

We had the perfect day today. After spending the morning crying into each other’s arms, we made breakfast together and danced to shitty 80s pop songs, lost in our own world of love and light. 

I feel so weightless with her. 

We already had a pile of movies picked out, alongside enough snacks to keep us going for weeks, and the rest of the day was spent pigging out on the couch and just being together, away from the glare of the outside world…

Well, I guess that’s it for now. Y/N and I are going to spend our day tomorrow planning our trip around the world, and I’m so excited at even the thought of everything we’re going to see and do together.

Yeah, things have been tough. But truthfully? I’d do it all a hundred times over if it meant I got to see the earth move beneath my feet with the love of my life by my side.

anonymous asked:

Hey! I love your blog and get excited when I see your stuff on my feed❤️. Anyways enough beating around the bush...I have a request. Can you do the Fallout 4 companions (romanced) chosen Honeymoon location? Where they would love to spend with sole. It doesn't matter if it's around the pre world war or in the Commonwealth. I'd just love to see your thoughts.❤️❤️❤️Thank you!

Thanks friend, I try! <3

Cait – Somewhere not too hot and definitely not too cold so…probably late summer/autumn in New Zealand up in one of those fancy hotels in the mountains – what with killer views of the valleys below from their luxurious bedroom and premium alcohol and buffet services at the ready, what wouldn’t she like?

Curie – Always a stickler for romance, Curie would probably want to go to Paris to have the most cliché and wonderful time there like all those romance novels and movies she’d be obsessed with. Somewhere classy and private with a grand view of Eifel Tower and the Seine.

Danse – Switzerland seems to have Danse written all over it, with the physical challenges that the snow covered mountains would present in regards to skiing and the casual tours via trains and the cosy cabins for the more laid back days of their honeymoon.

Deacon – Florida. Deacon definitely seems like a Florida type of guy, with all the palm trees, delicious seafood and the endless shimmering blue of the ocean and not to mention the vast expanse of sand fit for sunbathing or building sandcastles.

Gage – Somewhere cold for a change, so perhaps Yellow Stone National Park in beautiful Canada. A private cabin, lush green pine trees all around with a spectacular view of a pristine blue lake and some mountains in the background seems to suit him just fine.

Hancock – A total Hawaii guy, for sure. If those massages and easy days at the luxurious resort ever get boring for him, he’d most certainly like the surf and maybe even some scuba diving.

MacCready – A lengthy cruise seems like a good fit for MacCready – fancy room service, not a scrap of responsibility for months on end, total luxury and of course the on board entertainment would be more than enough to make him one happy guy.

Nick Valentine – I dare say Africa? Not sure why but it sort of just popped into my head. I have a feeling he’d totally love the safari thing and staying in the more built up area of South Africa and experiencing a whole new culture just seems like a perfect fit for him (to me anyway, this guy has me stumped otherwise)

Piper Wright – Italy seems like a good fit for Piper, a country full of beautiful architecture, tonnes of history and most of all, absolutely drop dead gorgeous landscapes. More specifically, a cabin in or somewhere around the city of Tuscany, surrounded by those lovely lush green, yellow and pink fields full of blooming flowers of all kinds.

Preston Garvey – Good old Australia baby, or more specifically a luxury suite in the Q1 at the Gold Coast where the beach is literally a stone’s throw away. I can just see him lounging back, sipping a martini or something next to the pool or gazing out the window down to the beach like a total boss with Sole. Hope he doesn’t mind skyscrapers because though, because it feels like its swaying up there or maybe it was because I was drunk at the time who knows

X6-88 – Somewhere in the Bahamas most certainly and he’ll look damn fine doing it too – lounging back in one of those recliners sipping scotch on the rocks, nothing but the sparkling blue ocean and sandy beaches laid out in front of him.

Mutability by @haloeverlasting
Harry and Louis meet in a book club. Life and fiction have their parallels.

Has the Ocean Lost It’s Way by @fullonlarrie
Louis and Liam are professional surfers who have been traveling the world together for years. Now they travel with Liam’s pro-surfer girlfriend Amelia and their baby Vivian. They’re in Manly Beach, Sydney to compete in the 2017 Australia Open of Surfing when Louis meets Harry, a freelance surf photographer working for Surfer Magazine.

Louis wonders if his nomadic lifestyle will keep him single indefinitely or if there’s someone out there who’ll fit in with his little makeshift family.

rivers ‘til i reach you by @crossnecklace
AU. Louis studies astronomy; Harry studies Louis. They spend their summers on the water and it shouldn’t be complicated (spoiler: it is).

Barefoot in Blue Jeans by @indiaalphawhiskey
AU. Louis Tomlinson is trying desperately hard not to fall for his son’s au pair, but he can’t, for the life of him, remember why.

If I Had Three Wishes (They’d All Be For You)  by @phd-mama
When Harry Styles sets off for Provincetown, MA from his tiny hometown of Kerkhoven, MN, he’s facing an uncertain future. He’s always planned to leave, just…not like this. When he meets a gorgeous cabaret performer on his first night in P-town, little does he know how his life is about to change, or how much he has yet to learn. When they become more than just friends, Louis makes it clear he’s not looking for anything serious, but at least, Harry consoles himself, they’ll always be friends. Over one extraordinary summer, Harry learns to navigate life on his own through a journey of self-discovery and sexual awakening. But when Harry’s past tragically reappears in his life, will his friendship with Louis be able to hold on?

if it kills me by @nobodymoves
Harry and Louis have worked together in a difficult office environment for six years. They’re best friends; Louis is the bright spot of all of Harry’s days. But Louis is in love with Harry, and Harry’s engaged to someone else. And that’s only the beginning.

The Office AU. More or less follows the first five seasons. A lot of pining and misunderstanding the depth of feelings and rejection and angst, until there isn’t.

Always Holding on to Stars by @louandhazaf   
Louis and Nick break up. Louis is learning how to cope.

My Lights Stay Up, But Your City Sleeps by @curlsandlashes
Louis has trouble sleeping, Harry has a habit of wrapping himself around Louis during the nights, and a mutual agreement to engage in a fun and simple thing quickly turns into something perhaps not so fun, and certainly not simple.

Getaway Drug by @moonlitlarrie
Louis and Harry break up and the only thing that Louis has left is Harry’s hoodie and their memories.

Hair by @goodmorningtoyouuniverse
Harry’s been in their apartment waiting for a while now, just passing the time until Louis will be able to actually come home to their penthouse there. It’s only when Louis shows up that Harry realizes something is missing and he’s maybe a little bit pouty about it.


To say I was channelling Sirius Black from Harry Potter when he says, “I did my waiting, 12 years of it…” would be an understatement. I’ve been fan of the Justice League for over 15 years and I distinctly remember around 10 years ago hearing talk of a possible Justice League film. Finally, we have it! 

Tonight our favourite DC Superheroes joined forces! Having grown up watching all the animated series and playing with our very own Justice League Watchtower and figurines, to see the inception of what we know and love come to life on screen was quite something. I will try to go as in depth as I can without giving anything away, so make sure you watch it. 

We find ourselves where Batman v Superman left us, dealing with the loss of Superman (Henry Cavill). Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) with the help of Alfred (Jeremy Irons) are on a quest to find fellow special beings to join their team and unite against a looming danger. A new villain in the form of another god like alien being, has decided to make his presence known. We learn that this villain has a history with humans, Amazonians and Atlanteans (with a special appearance from the Green Lantern Corps). It is from this point that the two leaders recruit superfolk who are on their radar, Cyborg (Ray Fisher), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa). 

Much like Suicide Squad I enjoyed the little back stories into each of the characters lives. Wonder Woman and Batman were the exception, where we were given a dose of what they do best, fight crime and save the day. What I also liked was the way in which we as an audience were put into the positions of some characters. Such as Batman and Wonder Woman, learning about the abilities of each character. Whilst we as fans know historically what the powers of each superhero entails, who knows how it will be written in the film. I was pleased to see how the film makers approached this, particularly when we already have some of these characters in the DCTV universe. We were also able to relate to The Flash, who like us would be super excited to join and check out all the gadgets but then, in certain moments think, “all I’ve done is push people and run away.” At one moment I thought, I have to be honest as much as I’d like to be Wonder Woman, we all know I’d be Flash. Which is equally just as cool. 

That’s just it. Each character owned it. In my mind they even set up the ground work for their own solo stories.  I’m talking Flashpoint, Aquaman and even a Cyborg film. After the success of Wonder Woman, we know DC can do a great origins story. Flash will be incredibly interesting as we already have the tv series, however if filmmakers follow what we already know about Flashpoint I will be mighty happy. Aquaman has just wrapped filming in Australia, and we can’t wait to see it (especially after tonight’s scenes) and come on, we’re talking Aquaman, or at least the way we see Momoa portray him is unlike any superhero we’ve seen before. Which brings us to Cyborg, who we know from Teen Titans, wasn’t part of the Justice League origins team, but I really loved the addition into the film. I love the intellectual side of it all, having been given glimpses into it during Justice League. 

I have to talk about the different worlds, Themyscira featured in Justice League with all the Amazonians doing what they do best, amazing fight sequences that made me want to watch Wonder Woman 2 all the much sooner. Honestly, the fight sequence where we last leave the Amazonians was my favourite. The way in which they worked as a team, as one unit looked spectacular. Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen) returns and puts on quite a remarkable performance. I remember the scenes so vividly as they were shot so well. They were truly breathtaking scenes. Then we visit Atlantis, where we come across the Atlanteans and in particular Mera (Amber Heard), who we know to be Aquaman’s wife. Mera was beyond what I expected her to be in this film. I was so happy to see the way she came to life on screen, I remember thinking, ‘yes! Another powerful, strong woman.’ I can’t wait to see what she brings in Aquaman. I also found her interaction with Aquaman to be quite interesting. The dynamic between the two was so real and unique in terms of superhero love interests. 

I absolutely loved the fight sequences towards the end, where the team unite. I was smiling like the Joker at that point, so enamoured by what I was watching. What I had been waiting years to see. The colour grading as always lends to add that extra element that makes a DC film just that, a DC film. It has that dark, grungy quality to it, which really adds to the overall feel of each film. It really worked in this film and at times I was thinking back to previous Batman films, both the 80-90’s and 00’s trilogies. The music was the perfect addition to each scene. My particular favourite was Aquaman aka Arthur Curry walking back to the ocean, drinking whiskey as a rocking track accompanies his strut. Reminded me of the scene in Suicide Squad where Deadshot is showing the prison staff just what he can do. Gary Clark Jr.’s cover of Come Together was one I thought, need to download and work out to this track, Wonder Woman style. 

There were some parts I’d edit down, like some of the more strategy talk, yes, it served a purpose, but I think it could have been done more succinctly. Also there was a fair amount of power posing done by the League. It wouldn’t be the Justice League without it though. In amongst all the action and drama there were some really great comedic moments. Each character had their own sense of humour. It wasn’t verbal, it was physical too. Flash was the king of comedy, the little idiosyncrasies he added working off others was so well done. The fist bump scene, for instance, which was further seen at the end of the film, and the scene where they’re all flying and Aquaman walks off having just intimidated Flash, Flash’s reaction in each situation is perfect.  I enjoyed seeing the different sides to each character, like Batman, actually overjoyed when he reunites with a certain character. It was also great to see Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Martha Kent (Diane Lane) return to add another element to the aftermath of Superman’s passing. I really liked Lois’ role in the film, much like Martha, it shows the reality of certain situations. Two other characters return, but I can’t delve into these characters without giving things away. We’re also introduced to a certain character who will join the DC universe. Saving all that for a possible spoiler talk review. 

Justice League met my expectations and I can’t wait to see it again. I definitely recommend it and I actually can’t wait to marathon all the DC films and then go watch this again. It’s the perfect addition to the DC universe.

Rating: 4/5 


I Don’t Mind || l.h

aw bubba, ill write whatever you desire xx

I M A G I N E 

The way you woke up was very much different than every other time you did. 

The curtains that hung in front of your bedroom window were slightly apart, allowing a sliver of sun to warm your cheek. It’s welcoming heat came to your attention, allowing your eyes to be released from its oblivion. You blinked a few times, having your vision clear up. It rested upon your closed closet, seeing a few pairs of bras hung on the handle. A yawn escaped your chapped lips, smelling a bit of bad breath. As you crinkled your nose in disgust, you felt gentle breaths upon the nape of your neck. 

Oh yeah, you softly recalled, your lips curving into a smile. It was insane that you forgot about Luke’s return from the tour. It was honestly pure disbelief that swallowed you whole when you saw the blonde boy stand at your front door at 1:03 in the morning. He was exhausted, his lanky stance exhibiting his weakness. But when your eyes trailed up from the bag in his hands to his lovely face, you saw a large smile beaming down at you.

“I missed you.” Those were the first words he uttered to you just a few hours ago upon his arrival. For so many months, listening to his voice on the phone or through Skype calls was soothing, but never clear. To hear his words in the flesh felt refreshing. 

But sometimes, doubt washes over you when you hear the words. 

Anxiety ran through your blood constantly at an overwhelming speed. It’ll jolt when you never want it to, especially when having to leave your home. You were always in doubt of yourself and others when they suggest outings of some sort. To be outside the comforts of your home was painful– you feared the outside world. If only I could help it, you always think as you put others in complicated positions when you say no. 

Why would Luke ever miss a girl like you? 

Even if he moved you over to Australia so Liz can watch over you. Even if he constantly sent you gifts during holidays and your birthday whenever he couldn’t be there for them. Even if he always spoke highly of you in interviews or whenever he met fans. Even if you were the girl he currently had his arm wrapped around early in the morning. Even when he said he loved you every single day. 

You couldn’t wrap yourself on the idea of Luke actually liking you. 

“Hey,” Luke muttered, his morning voice sounding so raspy and quiet. Your heart stopped immediately, having Luke turning your body gently so you could face him. His hands quickly grab your soft hands, holding them softly in his calloused hands. “Why are you shaking, baby? We just woke up.” 

“I was just thinking, th-thats all,” you mumbled, feeling blood rush to your cheeks. You were thinking about agoraphobia, the anxiety disorder you managed to developing from your sheer anxiety. Unlike most, you felt uneasy when you were outside, as if you were trapped in situations you’ll never be able to escape. 

“It’s okay, relax,” Luke hummed, looking into your eyes with his ocean ones. He looked so tired, his jawline and chin ornate with the beard he has yet to shave. He crinkled his nose a bit, having you smile at his defined nose. His light pink lips were slightly chapped, seeing as his tongue quickly swipes them moist. “It’s all okay.” He quickly pecked your lips with a loving kiss. 

“I know,” you whispered sheepishly, feeling so much doubt pit in your stomach. Luke gave you a smile, feeling slightly reassured but still a little sad. He lets you go and begins to sit up. You felt a little sad that you no longer felt his body warmth, but the sight was worth the loss. You watch as he stretches his upper torso, exposed to see his developing abs and muscles. You bit your bottom lip in adoration as you stayed laying down. 

“D’you wanna go see the rest of the boys today, love?” Luke asked nicely, turning around slightly to look down at your tired body. “They’ve been wanting to see you when the tour was coming to an end. They didn’t miss you as much as I did, but they really do want to hang out with ya. How does that sound?” 

You blushed, feeling at unease from that offer. Although you loved the boys and wanted to see them, you weren’t particularly into going out today. Although you don’t really enjoy going out, you have some days where you have a bit of tolerance and can go out. But you really wanted to stay home, especially now that Luke was here. 

“C-can we um… stay here, instead?” You reluctantly asked, looking away from the blonde boy as you felt yourself blush. You felt yourself pout, grabbing a bit of the blanket up to cover your face. “D-do you mind…” You trailed off, feeling stupid for offering. I’m such an inconvenience…

“I don’t mind,” Luke said quickly, shrugging before laying back down and pulling you towards his body. You were in a bit of astonishment as Luke wrapped his arms around your body and rested his head on yours. He placed one of his legs over yours and held you a little tight. “We can go whenever you want, baby.” 

With that, he planted a small kiss on your head and went back to sleep. With your heart calming down, your eyes fluttered shut and you joined him in a slow and patient slumber.
