Hail Hydra

Last night I got to tell Hydra to see Cap 2, that there was a very special thing in it that she would especially appreciate.

I fucking love that I live in Austin sometimes.

AU where part of the reason Carlos came to Night Vale was to join the men’s roller derby league

And he’s got some amazing science pun name like Hurlenmeyer Flask or Up’n Atom or something.

Cecil, naturally, does announcing for both the men’s and women’s leagues.

Cecil thought he was perfect the first time he saw Carlos, and then Carlos executed a perfect Mohawk (a move that requires strong quads and flexible hips) and he passed out.

I got an adorable Bonnie-n-Collide sticker at Staple yesterday.
Thanks, whipstickisses! <3 Lurvely to talk skates and red lipstick with you!!

this is it. my masterpiece. this is the best request i will ever receive and probably the greatest thing i will ever draw
the idea is that they are all on competing teams in the same league but after they smash each other up at the derby they go and get drinks together and they’re best friends don’t look at me



Don’t leave us in suspense. What are their roller derby names?

Holy SHIT. Roller girls of Arda!

HORRORHARLOT.
THIS IS LIKE, TEN TIMES YOUR DIVISION THAN MINE.
AND IT&#8217;S PRETTY WELL MY FUCKING DIVISION.
IT&#8217;S SO CUTE I&#8217;M GONNA DIE.

Six people walking on the strip in Las Vegas, and we’re trying to stay together.

I find myself touching my friend’s hip and shouting things like “Pack it up!” and “Bridge!!!”

Like NYC, walking the sidewalk is total jammer training.

Old Injuries, New Tricks - Anger Roo

rdleicester:

The Derbyverse is full of helpful ‘back-to-skate’ stories from people who’ve suffered horrific injuries during their skate career, but it’s pretty rare to hear about those who have come to Derby in an already problematic state. That’s not to say that loads of skaters don’t have stuff they’re…

As someone skating on top of a lifetime of orthopedic issues, this was incredibly affirming to read.

DISCOVERING HOW SWEATY MY WRISTS AND ELBOWS COULD BE

Ain’t no funk like wristguard funk.

I’d rather sniff my skates than my wristguards. And I skate barefoot.

*chin hands*

A friend sent my dad an article about Champs, and we watched the first twenty minutes or so of the Texas/Gotham bout on Youtube on his phone.

I’ve gotta make TXRG someday just so he can come see me in the big leagues…
