Y'ALL. I just saw a pilot trailer called world destroyer-

It looks AWESOME but one thing popped up for me.



This little cinnamon bun is just so precious yet -




If this becomes a real thing in the future I will be so happy. Spread the word of this pilot trailer animation and help the creators achieve there goal to turn this into a animated movie so this cinnamon bun can be loved more TwT

In 1958, two pilots flew an aircraft for more than two months without landing, refueling by matching speed with a truck driving down a road. Their record has not been broken.

The Cessna 172 flown by Robert Timm and John Cook to set the record for the world’s longest airplane flight (64 days, 22 hours, 19 minutes and 5 seconds), now hanging in McCarran International Airport, Las Vegas, Nevada

The X-Files Season 1 Pilot Episode. A few takes of Gillian struggling in the freezing rain and David encouraging her to make it through.

Paley Guy (Keith Uhlrich): So let’s talk about the pilot and some of your memories of it. I had seen Gillian talk about the scene in the rain, in the graveyard.

David Duchovny: Oh, yeah.

Paley Guy: I think you said it one time: “I’ve had the highest voice of television” or something. 

*imitating high-pitched sound*

David Duchovny: Heey! Come on!

Gillian Anderson: No, it’s true.

Paley Guy: No, no, no. Quoting. Quoting. Direct quoting. 

David: We were talking about that earlier, how both of our voices were higher in the beginning of the show and it’s not because we went through puberty. It’s because we relaxed. I’ve seen early shows and my voice is definitely pitched a little.  

Paley Guy: So what do you remember? Like any specific thing from the Pilot?

David: Well that scene in the rain. Oh, God. That was awful.

Gillian: That was awful. It was like 4 o’clock in the morning, it was forced rain, too, wasn’t it? It was just take, after take, after take.

David: And you don’t like the rain, do you?

Gillian: It was freezing. It was really cold.

David: And it was hard.

Gillian: And our lips. We couldn’t talk because our lips were frozen. Literally frozen. And we were laughing.

David: We didn’t know what we were doing.  We didn’t know what we were saying.

David & Gillian: Who is Billy Miles? 

Paley Guy: You didn’t know who Billy Miles was?

David: I still don’t.


Honestly, shipping DW and LP never occurred to me. Why? Well, possibly first of all because I felt that Drake was much older than Launchpad (with the former hitting his forties and the latter being more in his twenties). And secondly, Drake surely regarded LP as a good friend, but at the same time as his sidekick and gofer. So… no. It never occurred to me. Especially not when I watched the show for the first time at seven and a half years. ;) However, @ladyariaa drew such adorable DW/LP-artworks that I felt like contributing something in a similar vein. It can be interpreted in any way you like. Inktober-prompt 21, “Furious”, was a perfect chance to sketch a slightly different side of Launchpad McQuack.
