Munkustrap (Rafe Watts) varying their usual gentle nose rub by blowing on Mistoffelees (Xavier Pellin)'s face. Then going WOW when Bill Bailey (Kade Hughes) tumbles by.
鈽猴笍馃槂馃槷
(You can't tell me that isn't the exact expression Munkustrap uses whenever any of the kittens does something even slightly clever. He's just so proud of them. They're all brilliant and he adores them.)

so what was your favorite bomba moment
Thanks for asking! I鈥檓 gonna say either when she interrupted Mistoffelees and Tumblebrutus during the jellicle ball, or when Pouncival stuck his ass up so she would touch it during Rum Tum Tugger鈥檚. Both always make me laugh.

songs that remind me of the younger cats (jemima, victoria, plato, tumblebrutus, electra, etcetera, & pouncival):
i鈥檓 not that girl / wicked
boys will be bugs / cavetown
bangarang ft. sirah / skrillex
constellations / the oh hellos
new light / john mayer
i miss that feeling / tennis
walking on sunshine / katrina & the waves

Wrote a short silly thing based off of my headcanon that Plato is ridiculously strong but no one (including himself) realizes it.
Very silly stuff. I love Plato you guys I really do.
Fic under the cut.
鈥淚t鈥檚 true, Munk, I鈥檓 not lying.鈥 Skimbleshanks said, wincing as Jenny applied ice to his back. 鈥淚 saw it with my own eyes.鈥
鈥淪kimble, look, I want to believe you, I truly do.鈥 Munkustrap gave a sympathetic wince. 鈥淏ut it鈥檚 very difficult to imagine Plato throwing anyone around. Are you sure he wasn鈥檛 just lifting Tumble? Plato鈥檚 very good at lifts.鈥
鈥淚鈥檓 serious. Plato threw him at least fifteen feet into the air. I thought it was because Tumble was still a young kitten and didn鈥檛 weigh as much.鈥
鈥淎nd you decided to try and toss him like you used to do when he was a kitten.鈥 Jenny rolled her eyes. 鈥淣o wonder you threw out your back.鈥
鈥淚f you had seen how casually Plato threw him you would have thought the same.鈥 Skimble protested.
鈥淚 think not. I have common sense.鈥
鈥淓xcuse me madam-鈥 鈥淢adam? You call me that one more time-鈥
Munk left before the argument continued. Skimble would be fine in Jenny鈥檚 care. Eventually. Right now he had more important things to do.
As expected he found Plato in the middle of the largest clearing of the junkyard, a space that was usually used for large rehearsals or where Tumble practiced his acrobatics. Plato was still throwing a tom up into the air but this time it was Pouncival who was being launched.
Munk鈥檚 eyes followed Pounce as he ascended. Skimble hadn鈥檛 been exaggerating after all. Pounce wasn鈥檛 a light fellow either. Sure, he was small, but he was solid muscle and ate more than anyone else in the junkyard. The fact that Plato was just able to huck him into the air was an incredible thing to witness. Instead of interrupting Munk settled down to watch the show.
Eventually Pounce was launched a little too far and landed face first into an empty barrel, signalling the end of the show, and Munk went over to help Plato fish him out. Pounce barely said thanks before zooming off to presumably brag to Tumble how far he had flown.
鈥淥h hey there, uh, Munk.鈥 Plato said, looking rather embarrassed. 鈥淒idn鈥檛 see you watching.鈥
鈥淭hat was very impressive. I didn鈥檛 realize how strong you were.鈥 Munk replied. 鈥淗ave you always been able to throw the others around like that?鈥
鈥淯m, I guess? I don鈥檛 know. Uh鈥 Tumble just asked me to help him with his acrobatic stuff one day and I said sure and, well, here we are.鈥
鈥淗ere we are.鈥 The thought of Plato casually slinging a full grown tom around on a whim was a bit terrifying. Munk quickly made a mental note to ask Tumble for his side of the story later.
鈥淎m I in trouble?鈥 Plato pawed at an ear. 鈥淚 didn鈥檛 mean to hurt Pounce.鈥
鈥淚 don鈥檛 think he was hurt.鈥 Munk quickly assured him. 鈥淎nd you鈥檙e not in trouble. In fact, if you鈥檙e free, I鈥檇 like to train with you.鈥
鈥淭rain?鈥
鈥淵es. I think you have potential.鈥 Munk nodded. He had been on the lookout for an apprentice and he just might have found a candidate. Normally he would have talked with Alonzo first but he wanted to jump on this opportunity while he could.
鈥淥h. Um, thanks, I guess.鈥 Plato smiled a little but still looked nervous. 鈥淯h, what do you want me to do?鈥
鈥淟et鈥檚 start with the basics.鈥 Munk had plenty of experience teaching others basic self defense. In fact Plato had been a previous student of his, although at the time Plato had been rather shy and not all that participatory in the lessons. Even now he looked hesitant to act.
Munk took the initiative and lunged at Plato in a mock attack. Hopefully the tom had retained some of the knowledge about how to defend himself-
- suddenly Munk was airborne. How he had ended up in such a position wasn鈥檛 quite clear but at least he had enough wherewithal to land on his feet. He landed on the other side of the clearing. For a long moment he simply stared at Plato, brain unable to process what had just happened.
鈥淪orry.鈥 Plato cringed. 鈥淚 thought you were ready.鈥
Munk blinked. In the span of seconds Plato had managed to throw him clear across the junkyard.
鈥淒on鈥檛 apologize.鈥 Munk trotted back over. 鈥淪how me again.鈥
鈥淲ell, uh, okay.鈥 Plato hesitantly placed his paws on Munk鈥檚 shoulders. 鈥淯m. I just kinda鈥 uh, well, just kinda do this.鈥
Once more Munk went sailing through the air. Once more he had to take a minute to comprehend what happened. Once more he trotted back over to Plato.
鈥淗ow.鈥 Munk said. 鈥淗ow are you doing this?鈥
鈥淚鈥檓 sorry, I don鈥檛 know what you mean.鈥
鈥淵ou just鈥 threw me across the junkyard and apologized for it.鈥
鈥淲ell yeah, it鈥檚 not usually nice to throw people unless they want you to.鈥
鈥淭hat is very true.鈥 Munk took a minute to collect himself.聽
鈥淎m I in trou-鈥
鈥淣o, Plato, you are not in trouble. In fact, if you would like to, I鈥檇 like to take you on as my apprentice.鈥
鈥淵our what?鈥
鈥淎pprentice. You鈥檇 be training with me and Alonzo and learn how to help protect the junkyard.鈥
鈥淥h, I don鈥檛 think I could do that.鈥
鈥淧lato.鈥 Munk put a paw on his shoulder. 鈥淵ou just threw me across the junkyard. You can do this.鈥
鈥淥h. Uh. Well鈥 I guess I could give it a try.鈥
To say that Plato gave it a try was an understatement. Sure, he was hesitant and needed a lot of encouragement, but once properly motivated he absorbed information like a sponge. That, combined with his natural strength, turned him into a gentle but terrifying force of nature. A force of nature that Munk was having trouble convincing Alonzo about. Suddenly he knew how Skimble felt.
鈥淚鈥檓 serious.鈥 Munk repeated. 鈥淧lato is strong. He threw me like it was nothing.鈥
鈥淎nd I鈥檓 saying that it鈥檚 hard to believe.鈥 Alonzo replied. 鈥淵ou鈥檙e not fat but you鈥檙e also not small.鈥
鈥淟ook. There鈥檚 Plato over there.鈥 Munk pointed to the lanky tom, who was busy watching a butterfly flutter around his head. 鈥淕o tap him on the shoulder and see what happens.鈥
Alonzo rolled his eyes. 鈥淚f it will prove a point then sure, I鈥檒l do it.鈥
A tiny part of Munk felt bad for what was to come but it was smothered by the need to have Alonzo believe him. All he could do was sit and watch as Alonzo marched on over to Plato and tapped the unsuspecting tom on the shoulder.聽
鈥淗ey Plato, what鈥檚- aaaaaaaaaaargh!鈥澛
It really was incredible to watch Plato throw a full grown tom like it was nothing. Alonzo sailed through the air like a ragdoll and disappeared behind a pile of trash. Immediately Plato and Munk ran over to fish him out.
鈥淪orry Lonz, you startled me.鈥 Plato apologized. 鈥淚 just reacted.鈥
鈥淚t鈥檚鈥 it鈥檚 fine.鈥 Alonzo whispered. He looked like he needed a minute or maybe one of Skimble鈥檚 cups of tea. 鈥淕ood job.鈥
鈥淲ell, I think it鈥檚 safe to say that you are officially an apprentice Jellicle Protector.鈥 Munk smiled and clapped Plato on the back. 鈥淲elcome to the team.鈥

So I鈥檓 supposed to be working on Moonlight but this happened instead.
"We are going to practice our stealth today. This will require you to be-" Munk hesitated for a fraction of a second as he realized what he was about to ask of the group he had assembled. "-to be quiet and cautious."
鈥淨uestion.鈥 Tumble raised a paw.
鈥淚 will answer questions as soon as I am fini-鈥
鈥淲hat are we stealing?鈥
鈥淲hat?鈥 Munk shook his head. 鈥淲e鈥檙e not stealing anything.鈥
鈥淏ut Jerrie鈥檚 here.鈥 Pounce pointed out.
鈥淗ey, just because I鈥檓 here doesn鈥檛 mean we鈥檙e gonna be burglarizin鈥 anything today.鈥 Jerrie protested. 鈥淚鈥檓 here to help you all learn how to be quiet and not get caught by any scrutinizin鈥 individuals.鈥
Munk took a minute to compose himself. This was going to be a disaster, he just knew it.
Very silly stuff featuring some of my favorite cats.

Plato: "Three questions. Why are you wearing that? Where did you get them? Can I have one?"
Tumblebrutus: "They are fun. They fell out of a bag. You have no choice."
Pouncival, sneaking up to place an extravagant hat on Plato: "As if we wouldn't get you one!"

Parallels btw Misto/Tugger and Tumble/Hestia?? I MUST KNOW MORE, PLEASE TELL MEEE!!
BECAUSE YOU ASKED SO NICELY AND BECAUSE YOU'RE ONE OF MY FAVORITE PEOPLE OF COURSE I鈥橪L TELL YOU MORE
OKAY SO
(my聽鈥渃anon鈥 tuggoffelees story for me is Mr. Vague and Aloof and his Terrible Bore, so I鈥檒l be referencing that!)
Comparison time!!
Misto grew up being nervous to use his powers. He hid them from everyone except for his uncle and sister, who were the only two who knew about them.
Once Hestia found out she was Macavity鈥檚 daughter, she hid the secret, except from her fathers, her uncle, and aunts. She was terrified of her powers.聽
Mistoffelees thought Tugger would hate him after finding out he had magic, because of what Macavity had done to him and the tribe.
Hestia thought Tumblebrutus would never speak to her again once he found out she was Macavity鈥檚 daughter, and had his magic.
Tugger didn鈥檛 care one bit, and offered up his Third Name to Mistoffelees, so that the magical cat wouldn鈥檛 be so scared about sharing such a gigantic secret.
Tumblebrutus didn鈥檛 care that Macavity was Hestia鈥檚 father, and offered up his comfort and ears for whenever she was struggling, staying by her side.
Tugger gave Mistoffelees his glittering jacket a few days before the Jellicle Ball, where he would confess to the tux.
Tumblebrutus gave Hestia her pocket watch a few days before the Jellicle Ball, and confessed to her his feelings.聽
Tugger would move the sun, moon, and stars for Mistoffelees, no matter what it takes.
Tumblebrutus would gladly run into any sort of danger in order to protect Hestia.
Both Mistoffelees and Hestia would reveal their secrets if it meant protecting the toms that they love.
Both Tugger and Tumblerutus would sing the praises of their mates at the top of their lungs for all the city to hear.
i鈥檓 absolutely EMOTIONAL rn i love them so much, and these parallels weren鈥檛 even on purpose
(also... i mean... now you鈥檝e got me thinking about the idea of there being parallels with demestrap and jerriebee too... i mean... our girls and their toms make me really think about the parallels between all four...)

5 favorite jellicles and why
Munkustrap because he鈥檚 so kind and loving and protective. He radiates safety and his voice soothes my soul. Everything feels alright when he鈥檚 there. He鈥檚 everything that鈥檚 good in the world. Also incredibly sexy.
Mungojerrie because he鈥檚 so silly and fun loving but there鈥檚 so much depth to him beneath all of that. He鈥檚 a wonderful friend and confidant and always brightens up my day. Also hot
Tumblebrutus because he has this quiet but fun energy. He鈥檚 just a good boy to hang out with and talk to and maybe get in a little trouble with. Adding Pouncival to this because they鈥檙e a package deal and just good sweet boys. Also cute
Jemima because she鈥檚 so sweet and adorable and has a real love of life. She knows how to be fun but also knows how to be serious. She has this optimistic outlook too that I wish I retained growing up. She鈥檚 my baby.
Bombalurina because she reminds me of my friend. They鈥檙e both strong and confident and gorgeous and care an awful lot about their friends but have this mysterious side that only a few lucky ones are allowed to glimpse through. Hot

I asked on the wiki, but I figured I might as well ask here too. Does anyone know which actor this Tumble is? I got it from the website of one of the us tour venues, so he鈥檚 probably from either that cast or the revival, but I couldn鈥檛 find this picture posted anywhere on the wiki and I suck at recognizing faces. My best guess is Cameron Edris but I鈥檓 not sure
