birds of some sort


Supergirl / DC’s Legends of Tomorrow AU: In the year 2017, Kara Zor-El is lured to save her sister from an evil secret organization. The kidnapping is a ploy to unleash red kryptonite on Kara and have her destroy National City. However, when Kara accidentally kills Alex, the darkness inside her grows exponentially until she destroys all Earths. Rip Hunter sets a course to the future of Kara’s Earth and sends Sara to deal with Supergirl, both because she understands being devoured by darkness and because she relates to losing a big sister. Instead of letting Alex die, though, Sara decides to go save her in Kara’s place.

A Complete Ranking of the Bird Emoji Listed on Emojipedia

decent shape, but over-shaded. eerie, beady eyes that seem to plead for god’s forgiveness. an uncomfortable bird. not a friend. 3/10.

a soft and gentle bird, a good friend and ally. i would trust this bird with my secrets. 8/10.

a bold bird! a hardworking bird! he is trying his best, but alas, he is far too angular. too sharp. i do not want this bird anywhere near me, but i wish him the best. 4/10.

an abomination. it has the attributes of many different birds all stitched together haphazardly in some sort of horrific experiment. how many bird emoji were destroyed to create this godless, misshapen chimera? avoid at all costs. 0/10.

an unpleasant bird, although it is at least recognizable as a type of bird. somehow looks both cartoonish (appropriate for emoji) and as if it were ripped out of a cursed photograph of some sort of clay idol (inappropriate for emoji). approach this bird with caution. 3/10.

not even a bird. i don’t believe the designers at HTC have ever seen a bird. this is some kind of sick joke. i will not be tricked into rating this emoji.

an avian version of the HTC non-bird emoji above, but another unidentifiable bird. i would give him the benefit of the doubt, but he also looks like he’s planning something. a mischievous bird, chaotic neutral. 5/10.

a well-meaning boy burdened by his cursed form and stumpy, useless, strangely spiky wings. his kind heart shines even through his dead eyes. i hate this bird, yet somehow i can’t help but root for him. god’s favorite mistake. 7/10.

ah! already he receives a chance at redemption! but unfortunately, though most aspects of this new body are very cute and a vast improvement (except the oversized head), it lacks the heart of the previous bird. a solid effort, but it falls flat. 4/10.

a return to the pigeon style, but this boy looks far sweeter and more genuine than his cousins. he bears the thousand-yard stare of a bird who has witnessed the abominations before him and has vowed to atone for their crimes. 9/10.

this escher bird seems to be drawn in at least 2 different perspectives at once and is the concept of sin in graphic format. the longer i look at it, the more uncomfortable it makes me. 0/10.

i was beginning to believe it didn’t exist… a bird emoji that is recognizable as an actual bird! unfortunately, this bird is also far too detailed for use as an emoji. i fear that upon shrinking it down it will become a muddled, ugly mess. a bird of duality - successful as a bird, a failure as emoji. 7/10.


I’m not quite sure what I set out to do when I took these photos. I know it’s been a while since I took any, and I know these certainly aren’t showing off the flexibility I typically do. But maybe they don’t have to. Self image is a funny thing, especially when life isn’t going the way you might have planned. Health is a precarious thing. Even when you try your best, sometimes you’re hit with something from left field that you never saw coming. Everyone else is planning for the holidays and new year’s, and here I am waiting for the most important scans of my life (up to this point anyway) on 12/30. 2016 is going to keep me guessing right until the last second. 

2016 has been a hell of a year for all of us. Sometimes all you can do is take the punches as they come, regroup and plan for the future- whether that future is tomorrow, next month, ten minutes from now or 10 years from now. Stay true to yourself while reinventing the things that have to change as life happens. You are no less you for doing so.

And when things are this uncertain on all fronts, all I pray for is the ability to face it with grace. 

Wear Your Heart on Your Skin (2500 Follower Giveaway Fic #17)

For @a-moment-of-such-peace​, who requested a soulmate AU. I was given a few options for pairings, and I’m sure no one will be surprised that I went with E/R.

E/R, modern soulmate AU, soulmate tattoos. 

“Could this be any dumber?” Enjolras demanded, holding his shirt up and looking in the mirror at the tattoo that had appeared on his side at some point over the night.

Combeferre sighed and pinched the bridge of his nose. “It’s a soul mark, Enjolras,” he said patiently. “It’s supposed to be a unique, identifying mark, not a work of art.”

Enjolras glared at him. “I know that,” he snapped, lowering his shirt and crossing his arms in front of his chest. “But it’s still stupid.” He switched his gaze back to the mirror, scowling at his reflection as if he could still see the tattoo. “It looks like some sort of deformed bird.”

“Who is it?” Courfeyrac practically screeched as he ran into Enjolras’s bedroom, excitement clear on his face. “Who is he? Where did you meet? When did you meet? Is he hot? I bet he’s hot!”

While Enjolras just gave him a withering look before slumping over to the bed, Combeferre shook his head slightly to try to signal to Courfeyrac that this was not going to be that kind of conversation. “He didn’t meet anyone,” he told Courfeyrac. “The tattoo just appeared during the night.”

Almost finished with the weird blue pheasant I found on the road. From what I understand it’s a normal ring necked pheasant with some sort of color mutation.

Mounting birds is so hard. I’m improving though. It’s much nicer than the pigeon. Still can’t get the wings to look right up against the body though. I’m hoping I will improve. wish I could take some sort of taxidermy class or have a professional give me some tips.

Also tumblr please please stop eating my posts. And don’t you dare post them all at once :/

Request: Hi!!! Could you do a little imagine of a Slytherin girl with Newt? We slytherins need some loving!


It was a cold fall night, the moon was high in the sky by the time you could finally sneak out. You marched down the frosted hills of the Hogwarts ground, wand in hand, covering your trail with new frost. You sported you green and silver scarf proudly.

When you made it a decent way into the Forbidden Forest you made a small whistle like you practiced. Apparently it was mimicking some sort of bird only found in South America, crazy what your friend comes up with.

In seconds, Newt popped out from behind a few bushes a few feet away, a dorky smile on his face. It was dark except for both your wands illuminating the forest around you.

“Okay, Hufflepuff. Let’s do this.” You said confidently.

“You know, if you want me to help you, I would prefer if you use my name” the freckled face smiled.

“Newt, please. It’s cold.”

He waved his wand swiftly through the air, the light came to life off his wand and transformed into a floppy eared dog. It ran around joyfully, glad to be free. You watched in somewhat awe, somewhat jealousy.

“See, why can’t I do that?” You whined.

“You can, you can. Here let me help” Newt went to go grab your hand to show you the motion then froze, inches from your hand. He was still for a second, contemplating if what he was about to do was okay. “So, you have to wave it like this,” He grabbed your hand with confidence and guided it in a similar fashion to what his wand did before. His hands were shaky and cold but they felt like the fit perfectly over your hand.

“Okay,” You nodded, getting the hang on the movements,” but nothing is happening.”

“You have to think a happy thought. The happiest thought.” He looked into your eyes, as if he was helping you search for it. There was a long silence as you racked you brain. Newt waited patiently, hand still on top of yours.

“Well, what’s yours? Maybe it’ll help me.”

“Oh, uh, well, it’s silly.” He finally let go of your hand. Darkness settled over the both of you as his dog faded away.

“Oh come on Newt, please.” You begged.

“well, you see, when I was little, I snuck into my mother’s Hippogryph barn because one of the eggs were supposed to hatch soon, so I would go out there a lot and just watch and wait. Well one night, I woke up out of the dead of sleep. I just had a feeling. I made my way down to the barn andsat there for hours, just waiting. And that’s when it happened. The sun was just coming up and this beautiful Hippogryph head popped out of the egg and watched me.

That’s kind of when I knew I loved all creatures.” You watched as he watched it all unfold in his eyes, every detail meaning the world to him. And with that, you stood up.

“I think I’ve got it.” You smiled. Just a simple wave of your wand shot out a beautiful blue (Enter patronous here). Newt watched in wonder.

“It’s beautiful, (Y/N)! What was your thought?”He asked.

“(Insert most wonderful memory here)”


Finished during 2014 Winter Olympics 

Ye–es. It was swan lake and Levi took the role of black swan and Eren was some Prince unfortunately seduced by the bird. 

Some sort of Ludwig II stuff. (google him if you have no idea)

I might have a hobby… posting many at one post.

519: Ropen

Pretty sure Azhdarchidae would be absolutely terrifying if it was the Ropen.

Jonathan Whitcomb Eyewitness Testimony

Anna didn’t know if it was something about how tired she was or how thrilling it was to be up so late but sitting in the astronomy tower looking up at the stars past curfew put a smile on Anna’s face. Sure Anna knew better, but there was something about tonight that felt like it couldn’t end and though Anna was afraid she’d get in trouble, there was always a little risk that needed to be taken to do something great. Whatever it was she was meant to do that night. Anna had been using her wand to warm up her hot glue gun and piece together a few centerpieces and decorations for a dinner she wanted to cook for her sister. She learned a while back that American’s had a holiday on Thankfulness and Anna wanted to show how thankful she was for what she did have even if she wasn’t American. Of course, Anna didn’t know much about this holiday other than it was in the fall and they served some sort of bird but Anna was learning and once she knew it would be the best-holiday-that-they-shouldn’t-be-celebrating-because-they-are-british-but-they-are-anyway ever. But sitting alone and doing crafts was never a very fun time. Like her prayers had been answered though, she heard footsteps down the stairs of someone coming up. “Hello?” She called out. “Who’s out there?”

Cryptid 00002: Mothman

The Mothman is a monster reportedly seen around Point Pleasant in West Virginia, as some sort of bird-moth-humanoid. It is described to stand upright, have a wingspan of 20 feet (on which it supposedly reached speeds of up to 100 miles an hour), and two glowing red eyes in the upper chest area. It is also supposed to black or brownish in coloration, and an overwhelming 6-7 feet in height. Strangely, it is described by some as gliding rather than flying, as the Mothman has been known to swoop down and follow people, chasing them around (although it there have been no reports of a Mothman attack). The Mothman has been reported to have a loud, whining screech that has been described as “like a generator winding up”. One interesting case of the Mothman comes from the case of the Silver Bridge. In 1967 the Silver Bridge collapsed during rush hour and killed 46 people. The cause was due to a failure in a suspension chain, the bridge collapsed almost immediately. The strange part was the creature had been spotted earlier near the bridge, leading some to believe that the Mothman was responsible. However, others believe that was simply an omen of the disaster to come. Whatever the case, the Mothman could have probably been confused with a wayward snowy owl, as Point Pleasant is just outside of the bird’s usual range. The Mothman’s glowing eyes can probably be traced back to the owls’ reflective eyes, and its swooping down and following people is something that owls often do to snatch up their prey. Also side note, apparently the locals named the beast Mothman after Batman.

I am really starting to believe the SWR crew is making connections to the Mortis Arc. I’ve read several interviews with Dave, and he talks about this little bird being a symbol, or message of some sort.

Even the color scheme is the same.

Dave also said this:

“I would tell you, though, that it is absolutely not an avatar of the Dark Side. Absolutely not. But, you know, we’ll have to see. You’re going down the rabbit hole now. You know me by now – it’s not accidental that this thing is flying around. It’s not accidental that it’s there, and it’s not accidental that it’s bizarrely on this completely different world at the end of that episode. It definitely has a meaning for me, as the storyteller. It’s a subtle thing that if you know what the owl represents, then it deepens the lore of the whole thing and you go, “Okay, there are things at work here that are beyond our reckoning.” In some ways, I could say that it’s a messenger, it’s an observer. It is definitely something.”

Plus, the daughter did resurrect Ahsoka, so maybe it also has something to do with that?
