Guardians of the Gilmore: Kill Me Now

Title: Guardians of the Gilmore: Kill Me Now
Author: Ericadawn16
Prompt: Gilmore Girls and Guardians of the Galaxy, I turn all Sean Gunn appearances on Gilmore Girls into Kraglin events.
Character/Pairing(s): Kraglin, surprise guest
Rating: PG
Warnings: Nothing whatsoever except very mild language
Spoilers: Nothing there either
Summary: Kraglin is dropping some cargo off on Knowhere.

Kill Me Now

Kraglin was first mate now. Peter was off somewhere. Luckily, his M ship had a tracker so Kraglin no longer had to look after him. It had been about five years since that incident with Simon Williams.

Today was an easy job. He just had to drop their cargo off on Knowhere.

"Where do you want the dog?" he asked the latest assistant. Assistant was kind. They were basically slaves.

"Um, well, do you know where the back office is?"


Most people would have rolled their eyes at that point.

"Okay, you know the entrance you just went through?" she asked but he was tired and just wanted to unload the mutt.


"Going to help me at all?" she asked.


"Sir!" she called and turned back to Kraglin again, "This is Cosmo, right?"

"Sure, why not?" he replied. At least, he responded to Cosmo so he assumed that was the dog's name. There aren't too many dogs dressed in space suits either.

Baby Names

It turns out I'm not as progressive as I thought I was.

I love baby names. I love old ones, new ones, even weird ones but...

I'm always kind of disappointed at gender neutral. I feel like I shouldn't be. Gender neutral is what we should want from babies, right?

But most of the time, it's not like the parents are aiming for gender neutral. They're still having gender finding out parties. They're still dressing them in pink or blue.

There are two things I'll remember from every single first day of school.

1. Your name will invariably be messed up...even mine was a few times.

2. Teachers immediately have a guess at your gender by your name and if it's off, you can see it in the teacher's face. Sometimes, they'll flat out admit it, "Oh, you're a girl!"

Names and preconceptions behind them are important. Just check out the Curtis comic that explained how his parents made sure Curtis had a "white" name so nobody would think he was black until they actually met him.

But am I judging the world too harshly by my experiences? Am I no better than the Moclan for assuming how their life will play out with that name?

Irma Stuff

Thank you to everyone who's asked about me, including the person who PMed me but when I tried to message them back...I'd been blocked from their LJ!

It's going to be really bad soon and I'll have to sleep in the hallway.

I love most of you except for those I still don't know that well.

Prompt: Eclipse
Genre: Friendship/Hurt/Comfort eventual romance AU
Warning: ANGST
Word Count:Around 5,500
Summary: Severus meets someone unexpected at a lunar eclipse and it changes his life forever.
Author’s Notes, Part One: I wrote a reply to the Challenge post but haven’t received a reply yet so hopefully, it’s not too late to sign up.

*I originally wrote the first two parts almost ten years ago. I had people who wanted more and I was curious myself but never got around to it. After Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them came out, and especially after Harry Potter and the Cursed Child came out...I finally found my way back to it.
I wanted to post this yesterday for reasons that will be clear if you see the Epilogue but things got in the way, like Irma.

Red Box Post

Just a month or two ago, my mom and I used Red Box for the first time ever. The daily rates gave her anxiety and we basically watched the film as fast as possible and had it back to the machine by 7 PM. Unless we absolutely have to, she also doesn't want to do that again although if you keep it 2-3 days, it seems really convenient.

A United Kingdom was just as good as I was hoping for. David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike were adorable. Jack Davenport was, unfortunately, an asshole but it's always nice to see him again. I also loved that it was a real story just slightly twisted around.

My Mom and Independence Day

My mom saw Independence Day for the very first time last Monday. She said that she was "glad we didn't pay to see it in the theatre" and also happy that "Jeff Goldblum survived and was the hero who saved the day."

She has no plans on seeing the sequel.

Guardians of the Gilmore

Title: Guardians of the Gilmore
Author: Ericadawn16
Prompt: Gilmore Girls and Guardians of the Galaxy, I turn all Sean Gunn appearances on Gilmore Girls into Kraglin events.
Character/Pairing(s): Kraglin, Peter Quill, Yondu, Simon Williams
Rating: PG
Warnings: Nothing whatsoever except very mild language
Spoilers: Nothing there either
Summary: Kraglin and Pete do some distraction work.

The Lorelais' First Day at Chilton

Kraglin's main job was babysitting Pete even though he really wasn't that much older. His second job was just about to start. Simon Williams had just showed up.

"Hey. Um, what are you doing?"

Kraglin tried to look even younger than his real age, about twenty.

"You live here?" he asked with a data pad in hand.

"Yes, I do."

"I'm s'pposed to install new security for Simon Williams. That you?" he said, briefly glancing at the pad before moving it out of eyesight.

"Yes, that's me."

Williams wasn't playing along enough. They still needed more time.

"I'm Myck," Kraglin said, saying the first name that came to mind but not sure why.

"Hi Myck, nice to meet you. Now get the hell out."

"I was told that you wouldn't be here, but to look for a ceramic frog with a key in it," said Kraglin although Williams rolled his eyes. Pete was close by. He could hear him.

"I don't understand."

"We can't find the frog," Kraglin said a little louder than necessary so that it could be overheard.

"I didn't order new security."

"Uh, the order was placed by an. . .Nova Corp, can't have just anyone getting into your stuff," he said and Kraglin was reaching about the end of his skills with this sort of thing. It was so much easier when the cap'n could just use his arrow.

Yep, Williams wasn't buying the Nova Corp line even in a temporary fashion.


"We would've been done by now, but the frog search has put us way behind," Kraglin interrupted. This would be a good time for Pete to show up.

"Well, look-"

"Hey, Myck, I found it," said Pete walking up. The gates swung open.

"You found the frog?"

"It was a turtle," Pete said and Williams started turning sort of red. Well, that made things different. The more upset someone was, the more Kraglin liked to fuck with them.

"It says here it's a frog."

"It's a turtle!" Williams spat.

"Really?" Kraglin asked, playing dumb. Pete was nervous. He saw him itching to go for his gun. Babysitting 14 year olds was the worst.

"Trust me. Listen Mick, I'm afraid I'm gonna have to cancel that security order," Williams spoke and inched closer.

"You sure? It's already paid for," he said with a grin. He still had most of his teeth and could generally pass as the Xanderian he was born as.

"Get out!" Williams spat and held out his hands. Blue energy floated out of them.

"Well good day then," he said and shoved Pete in front of him when the boy froze, staring.

Cap'n wasn't too far away.

"Recon was a success no thanks to you brats. At least he thinks it's just kids trying to rob him," Yondu spoke.

"I'm not a kid!" Pete argued.

"Almost got yourself killed reaching fer your gun like that," Yondu complained and glared at him. "Well, come on, need a well rested crew fer tomorrow."

My Attempt at Casting

You know what would be fun? Casting the Young Avengers, I bet it would be super easy, too.


So, there were some rules...

Marvel already cast Abby Ryder Fortson as Cassie

She's 9 so everyone else would have to be reasonably close...
and then Tumblr would complain about certain characters if they're too white...


Nicolas Bechtel as Iron Lad

Sean Leo as Hulkling

Jaden Piner as Patriot

Elisha Henig as Wiccan

Peyton Elizabeth Lee as Hawkeye

and look at her face reacting to whatever stupid thing Clint has done now...

Dylan Garza as Speed

Jaeden Lieberher as Kid Loki

Lillianna Valenzuela as Miss America

Riley Lio as Noh-Varr

Miles Brown as Prodigy

Linkin Park

Technically, Linkin Park started when I was in middle and high school but I don't remember them being everywhere until college. That's when I had burned copies of Hybrid Theory and Reanimation. I played the second one for my mom I still remember how she said she enjoyed the instrumental pieces the most. Just a few months ago, I pointed out an early Linkin Park song and she didn't recognize it as them.

I can't remember now how it came about. My mom either saw them perform on a show or had WMNF talk it up repeatedly but "A Thousand Suns" was one of the few CDS that she bought new and not because it was on sale or something.
It's one of the best albums...ever.

If I had to make a Top 10 album list, this one would always be there. It's practically perfect. It's melancholy but hopeful. It's full of older tales still even more relevant today. It's thoughtful but toetapping. It's just...everything.

Then, there's Transformers. One of the reasons that Age of Extinction felt off was the lack of Linkin Park which was rectified by the fifth film. This video does have a LOT of that film if you're concerned with spoilers. I always meant to see it again but the timing never worked out so I'm happy about that.

But in general...this sucks. I think everyone my age was still getting over Chris Cornell's death...the Avengers credits will never be the same...and now this. Our attitudes towards mental health suck and they kill people and we just...suck.

I guess I keep thinking of that discussion between Jack Sparrow and Hector Barbossa:

Barbossa: The world used to be a bigger place.
Jack Sparrow: The world's still the same. There's just... less in it.

Thug Notes

My eldest nephew introduced me to these and they're awesome. It's about every major piece of literature broken down into an easy to digest form and very entertaining but not lacking in the literary analysis either.

So I might be contemplating a Kraglin AU where I'd use Kirk Gleason lines and situations from the Gilmore Girls episodes but with Kraglin in the GOTG universe.

Honest Trailer: Fate of the Furious

Sorry, it won't let me embed but it's the Honest Trailer for Fate of The Furious...which I still haven't seen, lol.

Anyway, right when they show Djimon Hounsou, I'm thinking...wait, Djimon Hounsou was in these films, too?

And then the Honest Trailer guy says the same thing and it was awesome.

But then, I'm also thinking these films have Vin Diesel, Kurt Russell and Djimon Hounsou...

It's like Groot works for Ego while Korvath is a drug warlord and Wonder Woman gets to be halfway cool for two films before getting killed off...

So messed up...

Chris Pratt and Michael Rooker

"I thought Yondu was your father."

"What? What made you think Yondu was my father?"

"You look exactly alike."

"One's blue!"
