As some of you know, some months ago my budgie Ali lost her partner Kai, and ever since she has been lonely and crazy. Budgies can’t be alone, they are Flock bird and have to be kept with their specie.
My first option is always adoption, but there was no bird for adoption here (We don’t have bird shelters at all), so my second option is always buy from a breeder, never from pet stores.
This weekend was the bird breeders meeting (there’s at least one every day and I’ve gone to 3 of them), I planned to buy a healthy looking birb and I also took some stickers to sell so I could get some money for the rescued birds (currently 7).
It was a nice small meeting, I could educate some people about not using red Dye Nectar for hummingbirds and what to do if they find a wild bird in need (baby or injured).
One of the breeders let me have this cutie for free, knowing I would take good care of it and seeing how I was working to get some money for the rescued.
Right now Sami is on quarantine, once I’m sure he is 100% healthy I will proceed to introduce him to Alí, if everything goes ok (I have the feeling everything will be alright) I’ll let them be together in the larger cage.
people are complaining about not having any kainora kiss or hug or fluffy romantic moments but just think
kai mentioned that they’re in a long-distance relationship most of the time but they’re doing well
they’re both shown to be very competent at what they do separately
when they’re in a room they stand beside each other; that shot with the air family + kai was everything – he just fits in there
when they were shown together, they don’t speak but there’s an obvious connection and they have great teamwork
and i’m very happy about that
they’re both young and together but the series doesn’t rub it in our faces, instead they’re shown to respect each other’s duties. we didn’t even get any childish complaining about them being apart (*coughbolincough*) which is sooo important because side-couple-characters always get this treatment
i’m sure they’re more laidback in their spare tension-free time and that they have their sugar sweet fluffy moments (i mean jinora’s obvs a hopeless romantic and kai is an adorable sweet goofball on his own right) but their roles in the series are shown to be more than that, they do professional work and their development/action scenes aren’t driven by the need to prove their togetherness
they’re young people who are in a no doubt serious relationship but are very independent, responsible and mature about themselves and each other
AND I LIKE THIS VERY MUCH
we need less childish annoying pining a la ‘my-whole-world-and-character-development-revolves-around-you’
more 'i-am-an-independent-person-who-doesn’t-need-a-love-interest-to-validate-my-worth-or-develop-my-character-but-that-doesn’t-mean-i-don’t-have-anyone-special’ characters, please
I often think about how many times Alison cried herself to sleep while on the run, clutching the photo of the girls she keeps in her wallet tightly in her hands, wishing she could just go back and change everything…
yoooooOOOOOOO you all have no idea how grateful i am to reach this milestone. this blog was a reboot of alison, and i was really worried that i wouldn’t be able to play her like before since i was basically starting from scratch again, but i’m really glad to see that she ( and the boys!! ) have been accepted and loved, and i’m so happy i’ve gotten the chance to create meaningful relationships both ic and ooc!
i’ve never actually done a bias list before despite how many years i’ve been rping on tumblr, but i think it’s about time i make one since i think this blog is one of my best experiences in terms of shipping, friendships, and threading and i really should just make a shoutout to some very special people and say thank you to everyone for sticking with this blog and helping me flesh out my muses!
