Chris Pratt worked with Marvel and Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to arrange a special screening of Guardians of the Galaxy for patients, families and staff at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Wednesday. While the movie played, Pratt snuck out and dressed up as his character, Star-Lord. He spent more than three hours in full costume and handed out movie-themed toys. Pratt also visited patients in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases, and the Pediatric ICU, as they were too sick to join the movie screening that afternoon.
Pratt spent extra time with one patient, Dylan Prunty, who is a longtime Lego fan and recognized the actor’s voice from The Lego Movie. They spent about 10 minutes reciting different scenes from the film.
The two sides of Dave Bautista. One as himself and one as Drax. Either way he’s adorable with a baby raccoon!
YES. I keep re-reading this snippet and wanting a million words - so I guess it’s good you’re writing it, because it should end up in approximately that range. :P
Haha no what are you talking about I am getting out of this story in under 10,000 words with no need for sequels. I swear.
NO WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING I’M SERIOUS.
Will it heal the wound left from this story’s unfinished state: casspeach.tumblr.com/po… ?
I think she said she’s continuing it, right?? I LIVE IN HOPE THAT THERE WILL BE MORE OF THAT STORY SOMEDAY.
Nooooo, you guys, now I have guilt. So much guilt. I am writing it, but work blew up unexpectedly and so it will not be done for the bigbang :-( but it will be done. I’m just slow, and in need of the new school term to start so I can write more than a word at a time without having to go referee a fight or confiscate a dangerous object!!
Awww, no, the last thing I ever want to do is make anybody feel bad about their writing pace!! Believe me, I well understand the long, long lag that can intervene between promising a story and getting it out into the world. Hang in there, and we’ll be happy to see the story whenever it arrives! <3 <3 <3
Rules: In a text post, list ten FICS that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” works, or even all the same pairing or fandom, just the fics that have touched you or that stuck with you somehow. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!
I was tagged by etharei! Here goes:
1. Guerillas by helenish (it’s the series under the picture, scroll down a little.)
(Nsync | Joey/Justin & Chris/JC & …Lance/Britney maybe? | Rating: ??)
This is the fic that lured me into actually reading slash as a genre—a friend had tried me on some fluffy G-rated popslash months earlier and I kind of went “eh, why do I care about these sparkly dance guys on a bus?” but then they were FREEDOM FIGHTERS IN AN UNSPECIFIED SOUTH AMERICAN COUNTRY and there was LONGING and JUSTIN’S LITTLE SHOOOOOOOES and I was hooked.
2.MPREG by Rhys (linked via Wayback, since Rhys’s site is defunct and this one isn’t on AO3.)
(Nsync | Chris/Lance | Rating: NC-17)
This was the first time I read and liked mpreg fic, largely because IT CONTAINED A MANUTERUS DIAGRAM. And, since I eventually did wind up writing my own bit of mpreg, I have always felt a debt to this story.
3. Lust Over Pendle by AJ Hall
(Harry Potter | Draco/Neville | Rating: R)
Draco/Neville! Village life! I read a lot in Harry Potter while writing almost nothing, and the fandom obliged me by turning out all these enormous epics that stood beautifully alone as novels, and I have loved SO MANY of them, but Lust Over Pendle was one of the first.
4. Transfigurations by resonant8
(Harry Potter | Harry/Draco | Rating: Explicit)
Speaking of beautiful HP fic novels—this is possibly my formative H/D story—the beautiful spellwork, the fascinating sideways look at American wizardry, all of it. LOVE.
5. The World Turned Upside Down by astolat
(Master & Commander | Aubery/Maturin | Rating: Explicit)
Favorite genderswap everrrrrr, with all the societal implications and repercussions and Jack having a baby and just YES. FAVE.
6. Jeeves and the Hole in Time by Mice
(Jeeves & Wooster | Bertie/Jeeves | Rating: Explicit)
Bertie and Jeeves fall through a hole in time and wind up in Seattle in 2009. Pining, h/c, a delightful crew of OCs, DID I MENTION PINING AND H/C. SO GREAT.
…man now I want the story where THIS is how Steve and/or Bucky got to the future. Ahem.
7. needs must by thatotherperv (Suits | Mike/Harvey | Rating: Explicit) I’ve never seen a single episode of Suits. I don’t care. This is fantastic. If, you know, you are into young men in financial distress making money as professional submissives. WHICH I AM.
…man now I also want this as a Steve/Bucky story but okay MOVING ON.
8. Anarchy in the U. K. by Yahtzee
(X-Men | Erik/Charles | Rating: Explicit)
Royalty AU! With the awful press of publicity and corgis and this amazing ability Yahtzee has for keeping the tension of the story high without ever once tipping over into unpleasant dread or over the top melodrama or people making stupid choices just to give the story a twist or drag out the angst. Just, gorgeous.
…yep, definitely want this as a Steve/Bucky story too. @_________@
10. your blue-eyed boys by Feather
(Captain America | Bucky/Steve | Rating: Mature)
This ALREADY IS a Steve/Bucky story! :D And it’s my favorite of all Bucky-recovery stories, wtih the long slow recovery and the finely calibrated hurt/comfort and the slow unfolding from the claustrophobic little duo into a wider community and I love it so, so much.
feanorinleatherpants said: I have so many TJ feels right now. So many,
TJ INSPIRES A LOT OF FEELINGS! For me some of them were also feeling like I wanted to shake him until his teeth rattled, but then also cuddle him after. But I think Steve will be good at filling both of those needs. ;)
