Look at this Cecil I found!! @doctorsebastianthescientist made him and I really love him. The vitiligo! Someone said it’d be awesome if his patterning moved subtly every day. Which is awesome, and I think it’d be even cooler if it began to move and swirl as his emotions got higher and higher, never moving fast enough to be a blur but looking really fucking sweet. And the eyes! And his little face, it reminds me so much of the little fey people you read about or see sometimes that you know something might be off but you can’t help but trust and love them because they’re so trusting and loving and innocent themselves.

If you could press a button that would give you a great deal of money, but it would cause someone you don’t know in a distant part of the world to die, then you would have a good model for how our current economy works.
