RUBY RUINS #619- What inspired you to start skating?I was leaving netball practice when I passed this hall full of girls on skates bashing each other and having a really good laugh. I decided to pop my head in and have a look, I put my first ever pair of skates on the following week and joined the team. Now I can’t imagine not playing roller derby!- What do you want to achieve as a skater?As cheesy as it sounds - to be the best that I can be….to knock Optimus off her skates one day and to beat Skullduggery in laps of course!- Who’s your skate idol?Raw Heidi!!! *swoon!!* She’s epic…especially the hair!!-What are you skating on at the moment?At the moment I’m rocking Bonts and Heartless wheels…but I’m not telling you my wheel set up - Decribe your roller derby journey.My very first scrim was appalling! I didn’t know what I was doing or what the rules were properly so it’s safe to say I’ve defiantly improved!Since I started skating I’ve always had a strong group of ladies around me to keep me going and to tell me honestly when I’m playing and training rubbish and to pick me up when I doubt myself! I’m very competitive so that helps me improve too and keeps me pushing myself forward!- Why NPT?Hitting people! I’m joking….a little bit The people - My team mates are unique and crazy and as weird as it comes but they work their butts off and never quit!! It’s like having a huge family who aren’t afraid to knock you on your ass then laugh when you hit them back!FUN FACT!I won the welsh powerlifting championships in 2006 and I used to be Brewster bear (from brewers fayer/brewsters)

- Who’s your skate idol?

Raw Heidi!!! *swoon!!* She’s epic…especially the hair!!


-What are you skating on at the moment?

At the moment I’m rocking Bonts and Heartless wheels…but I’m not telling you my wheel set up

OPTIMUS #106- What inspired me to start skating??I first heard about roller derby from my cousin Honey Trap who was playing for our local team!! She offered me her old rio rollers (2sizes too small) and the rest is history!! I really love the sport and as a girl who spent my childhood on the local skate ramp it was the perfect place for me to re kindle my love of skating!! - What do I want to achieve as a skater?? Right now I just want to be the best I can be, and as I’m currently completing my MA in social work my life is extremely busy!! I’m a determined person though and I’m excited for what the future holds not only for me but for npt roller derby as a team!- My skate idol?For me every girl who has the balls to put on a pair of skates and try out roller derby earn my utmost respect!! Kudos to you all! But honestly there’s a few high profile skaters that I admire but personally my idols are a lot closer to home, some of my best friends are within this team and that’s enough for me!! - What are you skating on?I’m still skating on my faithful starter skates, my Riedell Dash!! They’ve caused me no trouble for well over a year and I’ll be sad to see them go when I finally upgrade (which is well over due lol). My wheels I was lucky enough to win at SK8 Heaven and have been a godsend for me and I can happily say I LOVE my rollerbone turbos 92as…perfection in a luminous yellow package!!I have a lot of people to thank for my set up because I can honestly say being the skint student I am iv not bought any of it!! So thanks mam - My roller derby journey..I started my roller derby journey in a small valleys team in RCT, sadly this team disbanded and I was left homeless for a while!! Myself along with a few of the other valleys contingency tried a few different teams but couldn’t seem to settle!! That was until NPT kindly offered me some guest skating with them! As their team grew and developed I found my loyalty firmly sitting in their camp but it wasn’t until late into 2013 that the decision was made to join on a permanent basis! It was easily the best decision I’ve made. Hazel is an amazing coach and I owe her a lot!! That along with a tight knit group of girls who constantly challenge and push my skating skills why would I want to be anywhere else??!! I really feel I’ve found my forever team and that is one of the best feelings you can get in this sport!!- Why NPT?We have a fantastic group of girls that are a pleasure to skate with week in week out and I can honestly say I wouldn’t be at this point in my skating career without each and every one of them!! Who are…who are…who are we?!?!FUN FACT!In a previous life where roller derby didn’t suck up all my time, I used to run a Cub Scout group and was known as Akela!

Say happy birthday too…CARYSMATIC #18
- What inspired you to start skating?I got into it the cheesy way and saw “Whip It!” like a lot of people. I started searching for local roller derby teams and found the Slayers who pointed me in the direction of NPT. I wasn’t 18 yet so couldn’t train, but a few of the first NPT members were doing a meet and greet in a pub and convinced me to come along. 1 session and I was hooked, I even ran home and anyone who knows me knows I don’t run!- What do you want to achieve as a skater?I want to constantly improve my skill. I want to be strong and fast and the best of Jammer and Blocker I can be. The idea is to be an all round player, double threat and be the best I can be.- Who’s your skate idol?I have a few. Kid Block is my biggest derby crush!- What are you skating on at the moment?Still on my first pair of skates, good ol’ R3’s. I’m between wheels right now.- Why NPT?They are my home team. They are my first team. They have built me up to be the skater I am now.We’re like a huge family and I’m the baby of the team but don’t let that fool you, please! I’ve had ups and downs with good games and bad injuries but have always found a home in this team.FUN FACT!Carys’ favourite movie is Ferris Buellers Day Off and can recite every word. Especially all the musical numbers

Say happy birthday too…

Professor Moriarty #4. -What inspire you to start skating?I started through an advert I saw on the local colleges’ intranet whilst helping a student do their work for skaters to join a Roller Derby Team. I skated as a teenager and loved it so though “This may be a good idea to get fit”.- What are you currently skating on?Riedell R3’s- What do you want to achieve as a skater?I don’t want to achieve anything, I just want to enjoy.- Describe your roller derby journeyI’m a little older than your average skater (just turned 40) so I think the team look at me as the “Mam” of our Derby family as this is what our team mates are. To coin a phrase from a more prominent skater “There is nothing better than skating out with your team, knowing you’ve got each other backs”.
FUN FACT!!Moriarty was the tallest girl in her primary school.. She stopped growing soon after.

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 didn’t know I wanted this until now.
