This is the standard of keeping ball pythons. Its the most common technique, and it IS widly spread.

We can do better than this. This kind of stuff doesnt allow for a range of natural behaviors. It makes us look like animal abusers. Yes, the animals survive, but they cannot thrive in this setting. There’s literally not enough room for even one of them to stretch all the way out.

We can do better. We have to do better because this isn’t good for the animals health wise, or even mentally. It also gives HSUS and PETA more grounds to ban reptiles as pets.

Enrichment provides animals with an outlet for natural behaviors and promotes healthy animals. There are tons of studies on the benefits of enrichment- it’s not an extra step- it’s necessary for the good of the animal and is part of proper husbandry.

Dont be like this picture; dare to do more.

Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday; graduating high school, saying goodbye. That feeling that you get at 17 or 18 that no one in the history of the world has ever been this close, has ever loved as fiercely or laughed as hard or cared as much. Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday. Sometimes, it feels like someone else’s memory.

#remember at some point Lex was genuinely Clark’s best friend #he was someone who Clark went to for advice #he was someone who Clark constantly defended despite his last name “Luthor” #they both saved each other multiple times #and fuck i’m seeing some parallels in Supergirl #they both start of as friends #Lena and Lex at some point just wanted their parents to love and accept them #they both betrayed their parents in the end #point is i think we’re all hoping Lena doesnt turn bad #and we’re probably thinking “eh, she betrayed CADMUS” #she’s good #but look at lex #he still ended up as superman’s arch nemesis #AND I SWEAR TO RAO IF THEY TURN LENA BAD #i’ll cry

this isn’t even necessarily about shipping ok?

if you think sanvers is better than clexa, good for you. don’t be a dick to people who don’t.

if you think clexa is better than sanvers, good for you. don’t be a dick to people who don’t.

if you’re jaded from how the 100 handled clexa and find it hard to trust that sanvers will be handled well, i don’t blame you bc same. but don’t guilt people who like and enjoy sanvers. 

people have their opinions and emotions. don’t be a dick bc you disagree. 

you’ve heard of bokuto being insecure,  but have you considered

akaashi also being insecure. 

akaashi being insecure about his relationship w bokuto, both as a teammate and not. Unless you’re childhood friends, there is always something a little tenuous about being the younger friend. And when bokuto leaves high school oh man, it must hurt to be left behind, even if there was no choice, and especially if Akaashi thinks bokuto will find a setter that can bring out his best better than he can, better than he ever had 

akaashi being insecure about how he looks. just because the fandom decided he’s pretty doesnt mean he knows he’s pretty. He’s a teenager, and I’m sure there are days where you think you look great and days where u feel you look like absolute garbage. Especially when he looks upon Bokuto, who shines when he gets a good hit in. How can anyone compare to that?

akaashi being insecure with his attitude. Akaashi seems like the kind of kid that tried to grow up too fast. he didn’t act childish because he was praised by ‘how mature’ he was at a young age. adopted this cool persona when he can be (and is) just as jealous and bitter as anyone else (maybe even more jealous even). Just as childish as anyone else. to someone like that, someone like bokuto, who is even able to express himself so freely (even if he gets reprimanded), is so admirable.

Now, I love my cool headed and maybe even suave akaashis, but he’s still just a kid. I want to explore an akaashi that is awkward off the court, who’s awkward when confessed to and maybe even around bokuto, (being awkward around a crush seems natural), i just wanna see some akaashi thats a little unconventionally attractive in his manner of talk. we dont gotta stop the really cool akaashis lets just spice our life up with akaashi that has no idea how to deal w anything that isnt bokuto or volleyball 

"I love Tom"
  • What I mean: Its so nice to see a subversion of the 'bad boy' trope. he isnt a bad boy, he is an actual child with a very real and destructive disorder that he does his best to fix all the time, even after he accepts that he'll never get back with his ex. He is trying so hard to be a good person because he doesnt want to be like his shitty father, he knows he messes up and immediately after his episodes realizes his mistakes and just looks so guilty and broken and sad and you just want to hug him and say "you're trying you sweet gumdrop I'm so proud of you" i just want him to be happy and have the support he needs to grow as a person
  • What I say: He spikey my dudes
Not Good Enough

Request: Hi, again! Loved Jealously 😚😍 And I was just wondering if you could do one more request for me. Where Reader thinks she isn’t good enough for Bucky and thinks she doesnt have a chance, but unbeknownst to her, Bucky loves everything about her. @charlesgrey1875

Something about the way Bucky looked at Natasha, even Wanda, made you feel less about yourself. You’ve always felt insecure about yourself and felt like you weren’t good enough to even gain the attention of Bucky Barnes.

This became all the more real for you as you watched Bucky checking out Natasha in her tight bodysuit. Your stomach sank as he walked up to her, clearly flirting. You looked away, your cheeks burning red from feeling so terrible.

It wasn’t even just your looks that set you apart and made you feel like Bucky would never give you a chance. You were clingy, you weren’t as great skill-wise, you just didn’t feel like his type. So, you kept your mouth shut and let it go. At least, you tried to.

Natasha’s burst of laughter filled the jet and you sighed, playing with a loose thread in your own bodysuit. It wasn’t as tight as Nat’s and it had more places for weapons. “Hey kid, why do you look so down?” Tony asked, sitting his helmet down on the table you sat at.

You involuntarily looked over at Bucky and Nat, your stomach knotting. “Oh.” Tony said. Tony knew you liked Bucky, he knew the first day you met Bucky. Something about him drew you in, you wanted to get to know him, and the more you did, the harder you fell. He never stole a second glance at you.

“You can do better, Y/N.” Tony said with a small chuckle. “That’s easy for you to say. You’re not in love with him.” You said quietly, giving Bucky and Nat a side glance. “Okay, gross. Thank God I’m not. But kid, if he doesn’t see how amazing you are, move onto the next one.” Tony said, patting your back. He got up and left you to watch Bucky flirt with Nat.

You sighed, ready to get this mission over with. Unfortunately, you were paired with Bucky and Natasha. You three were ordered to keep watch outside. So you all got ready and once the quinjet landed, you quickly ran out.


You were standing outside the doors, Bucky and Nat on either side of you. “So, that line in the movie you told me about, was wrong.” Bucky said, leaning sort of behind you to talk to Nat. She laughed and shook her head. “I’m telling you, he says-” You sighed. “I’m gonna scope out around the area.” You mumbled, tired of hearing them talk.

You heard Bucky call after you but you kept walking. You started thinking about everything that was wrong with you. Anything that would make Bucky not like you. Everything screamed “not good enough”. Your looks, your interests, your likes and dislikes, your- A gunshot brought you out of your thoughts and you jumped.

Turning the corner, you saw Bucky and Nat high five each other. You sighed, rolling your eyes. You walked back to them. “All clear?” Bucky asked, stealing the dead guards weapons. You nodded, standing back in your spot.

You all three stayed quiet now, having already had a guard show up. You saw movement in the woods ahead and you carefully and very slowly aimed your gun. You saw the guard approaching and you pulled the trigger, shooting him down.“Headshot!” Bucky quietly praised you, smiling down at you.

You smiled back and blushed, turning away before he noticed. “Guys, we need two of you inside!” Steve called out through the comms. You all three exchanged looks. You already knew what was about to happen so you looked at your boots. He’ll choose Nat.

“Nat let’s go.” Bucky said, leaving you outside to watch for other guards. Your heart broke but it was your own fault. The door closed behind you and you sighed, wishing you didn’t feel like this; never good enough for Bucky Barnes.


The mission finally ended and everything was taken care of. You were tired and had taken down more guards than you planned. One had come up behind you and sliced your arm just as you had whipped around to shoot him.

Steve was doctoring your wound and you winced as he cleaned it with rubbing alcohol. “Sorry.” Steve apologized quickly. “I’ve never seen a scratch on you before, Y/N. How did this happen?” Steve asked, making everyone turn to you.

You sighed, keeping your eyes on your handgun on the table. “I was distracted, I guess.” You said softly, not trusting your voice. Yeah, distracted by your extreme torture of never being enough for the guy you’re in love with. “Distracted? You’re never distracted.” Bucky chimed in, furrowing his eyebrows.

You jerked when Steve started wrapping your wound. “Sorry, again.” Steve said, feeling guilty for causing you more pain. “Y/N, why were you distracted?” Clint asked, cleaning his arrows. You looked over at him, then at everyone else, and stopped at Bucky. He looked at you, awaiting your answer.

“It doesn’t matter”, you sighed, looking away from Bucky afterwards. The quinjet got quiet and Steve finished wrapping your arm. He got up and you sighed again, getting lost in your thoughts.


As the quinjet landed, you were still sitting in your seat, staring at your handgun. Everyone had left so you let your eyes fill with tears and you sobbed. You held your head in your hands, digging your palms into your eyes as if the pressure would keep your tears inside.

“Y/N.” You heard Bucky say. You jumped in your seat, turning to face him. “I thought everyone had left.” You said quietly, sighing. “Why are you crying?” Bucky asked, taking a seat beside you. You shook your head. “I’m not doing this.” You said, standing to your feet.

Bucky followed you and caught your wrist in his flesh hand. “Doing what?” Bucky questioned, looking down at you. You inhaled deeply and let out a heavy sigh. “Y/N, just tell me what’s going on.” Bucky pushed, setting off your last ounce of composure.

You looked up at Bucky. “You really want to know what’s going on?” You asked rather harshly. Bucky nodded. “Yes.” He said. You blinked away your  tears before continuing. Bucky waited patiently, his hand never leaving your wrist.

“I love you, Bucky. And it’s killing me. You don’t see me the way I see you. I’m not as attractive as Nat or Wanda, we don’t have a connection. I’m not great at being an assassin, I’m not as smart as Nat or as clever as Wanda. I have annoying quirks about me, I clearly cry too much, and I’m-” you sighed. “I’m not good enough for you and I wish I was so you’d at least notice me in a way other than being your teammate.”

You finished your rant and turned to leave so you wouldn’t cry anymore in front of Bucky, but his grip on your wrist tightened. Bucky turned you around and you felt his lips crash into yours. Your eyes widened with shock and he held your cheeks in his hands as you started to kiss back.

You immediately pulled away, gasping for air. “W-wait a minute. What are you doing?” You asked, unsure of what this meant. Did this mean Bucky felt the same way about you? Does he just feel sorry for you? Did he do this just so you’d shut up?

“Y/N, I love you too. I love everything about you. You’re more than good enough for me. I just didn’t know you felt this way. I’m me; I don’t feel good enough for you.” Bucky said, looking down at you, his lips plump from your kiss.

You furrowed your eyebrows. “What?” You asked, not believing what Bucky was saying. Bucky sighed and picked you up, placing you on the table in the quinjet. “I. Love. You.” Bucky said, staring into your eyes. “I just didn’t know how to tell you.” Bucky said, looking down at you sadly.

You bit your lip anxiously. “What about Nat? Don’t you like her? I mean, you could’ve asked me to go inside with you.” You said quietly. “No, I don’t. I was trying to make you jealous but I ended up hurting you. And I wanted to keep you safe. It was much worse inside. But, I see that you still got hurt.” Bucky said, frowning.

“So, you like me and not Natasha?” You asked, still unsure. “For all that is good and holy, just listen to the man speak! Hear his words!” You heard Sam yell into the intercom in the quinjet. You and Bucky both jumped at the sudden outburst.

Bucky chuckled and shook his head. “I love you, Y/N. I think you’re perfect and more than good enough.” Bucky said, kissing your forehead. You blushed and wrapped your arms around Bucky. Your heart felt whole now and you couldn’t believe Bucky felt the same way.

Maybe you could have your happy ending afterall.
