Dash, Violet, and Jack- Jack from The Incredibles! All grown up :3
I’m reblogging this again because god damnit I’m getting headcannons. How awesome would it be if like, 10 or 15 years after Incredible’s, these three become like the ultimate crime fighting team. Violet would be the leader, with the brains and many of the black widow style skills her mother passed down to her.Dash would be like the action man with his insane reflexes and he would totally learn to fly a jet from his mom. And then Jack-Jack is the passive quiet one but he’s seriously the most powerful in the group, but he’s happy just to follow and is super modest about being one of the most hyperpowered superhero’s ever. And Helen and Bob are there too, being as awesome as they always were. They do less field work now, getting ready to actually retire. But they’re always there to lend their kids a helping hand when they need it. I legit want a sequel with these three as the protagonists? Mixing the ordinary of young adult life with the fantastic of super heroism? Violet is going steady with that one guy from the end of the movie, Dash is totally revolving his life around superheroism and has a hard time keeping his identity secret, and Jack-Jack is dealing with being rejected in highschool for being a wimp or something and is suffering whiplash from his polar opposite double lives.
PIXAR MAKE IT HAPPEN PLEASE
NO BUT I’VE LITERALLY HAD THAT IN MY HEAD FOR YEARS AND ERE ITS VOICED THANK YOU OMFG
I was in the shower shaving for like… 45 minutes, and I STILL had to forgo shaving one of my legs because I was concerned I was running late for lunch (it turns out I wasn’t, but whatever).
I also ruined my razor, because I didn’t think to trim any of my hair first, but that’s okay.
Also look at all that fucking hair. There’s so much of it. I had no idea I had that much hair on me.
Tomorrow I will shave my left leg and run clean-up on basically everywhere else (it’s pretty patchy).
Aren’t you supposed to grow a mustache? what the fuck is full shave november.
The opposite of No Shave November. Lots of women get flak for participating in No Shave November and letting their body hair grow out (I can’t find the post with a bunch of screencapped tweets about it, but this is the next best thing), but the vast majority of guys (myself included) have absolutely no idea what a pain feeling like you have to shave your body hair is like. So, for the entirety of the month, I will be shaving my legs, chest, and armpits on a regular basis (as well as my usual regimen of shaving my face).
