Guardians of the Galaxy was such a fantastic movie!”

"There were a lot of issues with GotG that should be addressed and Marvel should work on improving with future movies."

Did I step on your moment?

Except that I really wanted the female politician to be a kick-ass secret agent as well.

do u ever daydream about decorating ur first apartment bc i do

I have had mine planned out for close to 5 years now. The living room is chocolate brown and emerald green, the kitchen is in cobalt blue and ivory. Bathroom nautical, and there’s an office with all of my comfy purple blankets and a giant purple overstuffed loveseat.

One of my favourite things about Harry Potter is that Harry is such an unreliable narrator, not because he’s lying, but because he was so oblivious, just about anything could be going on under his nose and he wouldn’t even notice. It’s great because it supports basically every headcanon. Like, no, Harry would not have noticed if Sirius and Remus were dating, I know he’s The Chosen One but he’s about as perceptive as a pile of bricks.

BBC’s SHERLOCK, 3.1:
After the Great Gonzo’s fantastic leap from the top of a massive high-rise, even his closest friend Rizzo the Rat believed he had perished. However, a legion of Muppet fans, led by Gonzo’s awkward and obsessive acquaintance Walter, have been working to assemble their own theories.
The bungee-jumping seems plausible, as does the assistance from the Great Gonzo’s legendary Chicken Network, but we all know that him kissing Miss Mousey seems a little far-fetched.
Just wait until Dr. Bunsen Honeydew brings Gonzo back to England. Walter won’t believe his eyes.
And Rizzo? We know he’ll say, “#IDontShaveForTheGreatGonzo.”

Tired of Waiting? Grow your own Groot!

I know I have wanted a baby dancing Groot to sit on my desk since watching Guardians of the Galaxy this weekend. But, alas, it is Wednesday and there is still no Groot to market! So, I shall show you how to make one! 
This project will take a bit of patience, some materials you probably do NOT have handy, and….glue. (sorry, the few followers I have! But it is hot glue, so it dries fast!) It also probably is NOT going to look as pretty as the eventual marketed version, but, hey! Baby Groot!

I am so fucking glad that they didn’t force these two into a romantic relationship.

BEST FRIEEEEEEEEEEENDS.

it’s even better when you remember, that every second they are not dying, she keeps trying to hook him up with any girl, she’s his wingwoman

She’s his Barney Stinson.

Haaaaaaaaaave you met Steve?

Barney belongs with Maria Hill and nothing you say or do will change that. NOTHING!
