We could hold each other close and stay up every night
Looking up into the dark like it’s the night sky
And pretend this giant missile is an old oak tree instead
And carve our name in hearts into the warhead
I went to a very nice party today. As soon as I arrived, my friend introduced me to a guy by saying “I’ve been meaning to tell you two to talk about Halo.”
This guy played multiplayer competitively, so that was interesting, and we talked a bit about Halsey and about how Noble Team was composed of both Spartan twos and threes. He couldn’t remember whether the team was mostly threes or not and said that didn’t seem to be right, but I knew, and looked it up and showed him.
He knew RvB enough for us to toss a few jokes at each other, although had stopped around season nine (gasp.)
The rest of the night was just really good, including people climbing trees. I was even competent at sports involving hand-eye coordination.
I had been a bit nervous because it was a group of people I didn’t know well, but it turned out to be a smaller group than I expected, and some really nice conversation.

i just love north because when tex is introduced to them via impromptu training session, wash calls tex a ‘him’ and south is quick to correct him but it came out wrong and wash is just stuttering to correct himself to avoid trouble
and north is just giggling like a five year old in the bg
i guess that’s one of the two reasons north was paired with theta
I love that scene, because it’s just the Freelancers laughing and being comfortable with each other
before everything starts to go wrong
James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.
From the film’s IndieGo page:
Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.
In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.
