I’m trying to have a final design on this two, of course making the mouse inside a bag making so I can’t see most of the body doesn’t help, but what I’m really trying to fix is the raccoon It isn’t this time yet, that leg is completely broken, and I’m thinking I might give him some extra fluff on his head
“Hey, hey!” Rocket yelled from across the bar, rushing over to you. “Leave them alone, buddy!”
The man smirked at Rocket, before turning back to you.
“Is this who you hang out with now? Some random animal? Well I guess that’s what happens when your family abandons you.” the man shoved you hard, and you kept your head down. You were having a drink when someone approached you, and you immediately recognized him as the school bully, except now all grown up. He would constantly harass you about how your parents had left you and you were adopted, and here he was, still harassing you.
“You better watch yourself.”Rocket hissed as Groot walked up behind Rocket. “Or I’m going to get Groot here to bury you under the ground.
“Yeah, right.” the man scoffed, but flinched as Groot stepped closer. Raising his hands, he backed off. “Okay, fine. I’m leaving.”
He shot you one last glare before grabbing his glass and disappearing. You sighed, burying your face in your hands. You didn’t really think much about your parents, you barely knew them after all, but it still hurt to think about how the left you.
“Hey, uh, you alright y/n?” Rocket awkwardly asked, climbing up onto the seat next to you. He registered your shaky breaths, and exchanged glances with Groot. “It’s okay to cry… just don’t do it in front of me.”
“That was shit.” you laughed slightly, shaking your head. Brushing your hair out of your face, you looked up at Rocket. “That’s not how you comfort someone, you idiot.”
“I may be an idiot, but I’m not stupid.”Rocket defended himself, and you shook your head, knowing he was definitely drunk. “Don’t let some random bastard get you down. And don’t feel bad about your family. It’s their loss, honestly, you’re a great person.”
“Much better.” you nodded approvingly, but felt grateful tears welling up in your eyes. “Thanks, Rocket.”
“No problem.” he waved down the bartender. “Now I’m going to get another drink. I lost Peter somewhere and I’m not bothered to find him.”
It genuinely bothers me how good an idea Danny Phantom was. The premise of a teenage ghost superhero fighting evil spirits while living in the home of his ghost hunter parents is such a truly fresh idea I’m astonished it happened at all. There were so many problems with the show and I can’t tell if they were the fault of the creators or Nickelodeon trying to keep it too close to Fairly Odd Parents instead of letting this brilliant idea breath and act as its own entity. Can you imagine how amazing this show would have been in a post Adventure Time post Avatar environment that would have allowed it to explore the narrative it was clearly interested in weaving? The potential this show had bothers me so much.
