"I-I'm sorry for the sudden appearance, b-but I wanted to finally come out and meet you since I heard s-so much of you and all." He stood there and rubbed the back of his neck shy and nervous.

Nono, it is being okay,. *The bean smiled as he gestured for Shy to walk with him. The day was warm and Fawful had been eager to take a break from the cold confines of his underground home.* From the sound of it, you are knowing Fawful’s name. So, what is being yours?

snapshots of new duward, part two: lupercalia

February 13-15: Lupercalia, a day to cleanse the underground homes and streets of New Duward and several other cities in Southern Europe of human influence. No human tools or inventions are typically used by those who celebrate the holiday, and those who do not celebrate the holiday are often frowned upon. 

Originally Lupercalia was a day to cleanse the streets of evil spirits, but since the warlocks and demons protested against this in 1895, it was changed to a purging of human effect on the underground cities.

Lupercalia is celebrated by all the creatures in different ways.
Probably the most interesting celebratory customs are those of the few remaining gorgons, who spend the first day buried completely underground asleep to kill the serpents atop their heads and to shed their old, weakened skins, then emerge on the second day with hardened membranes and pluck the dead snakes from their heads.
On the third day, they go on a hunt in forests, deserts and/or human houses to find new snakes to bond with. After they find their new companions, the gorgons use the snakes’ venom to soften their skulls then insert the snakes in by their tails, giving them a new head of “hair” and thus concluding the events of Lupercalia.

What’s left of the gorgon species usually meets up in New Duward’s underworld to partake in the celebrations together, burying themselves close to each other and going on their snake hunts as teams. They have been known to occasionally help pull the dead snakes out of each other’s heads, but such intimacy is rare among gorgons and is regarded as a strange thing to do by other supernatural creatures.

// I WANT THIS SO BADLY THO. ;___; RAVEN MY PRECIOUS QUEEN, KICKING ASS AND TAKING NAMES~~~

;; no. no. no. you don’t understand.
   raven becoming this almost like myth
   among mutants. mutants whispering
   the name “mystique” when they’re
   in need. mutants in labs giving each
   other hope by whispering that mystique
   will save them. the cynical ones saying
   she’s not real, that  no one was coming
   to save them, that nobody cared enough.
   those same mutants crying when she
   appears to take them home. 

   raven running an underground network
   to give mutants new lives and new homes
   afterward, keeping them safe from the people
   that took them. raven setting up safehouses
   for mutants on the run. 

   raven realizing that espionage is just as
   effective as a gun and knowing you don’t
   have to kill to dismantle power. 

   just. raven being on her own.

love the advice posts going around for UK people dealing with American-south-style summer

my advice as a pale redhead on the border of the south/midwest is:

  • dress in light colors and loose, non-stifling fabrics
  • definitely remember to apply sunscreen several inches past where your hems appear to fall (because they may ride up), and in easy-to-forget areas like the back of your neck
  • arrange windows and curtains to block out as much light as possible while allowing in breezes
  • buy a home with a cooler underground area, like a cellar, if possible
  • move all your worldly belongings into the dim cave of your new domicile
  • lock yourself in until September
