So this is really late, but I did this right after watching the last season of Voltron because I had Freesia (from Guilty Gear) on repeat. Touched it up today. 

Please stop romanticizing relationships that start when the girl is just a kid and the guy is already an adult and then once she’s older it becomes romantic/sexual

anonymous asked:

what kinds of plants do u use for ur ball python enclosure? im thinking of converting to bioactive

This got pretty long, so I apologize if you were looking for a quick list lol but I am very enthusiastic about plant choices. I hope this helps!

Pothos! 

Probably at least 50% of the plants in both of my tanks are pothos. It’s incredibly easy to grow and very hard to kill (whether by living conditions or a heavy animal climbing all over it - it can usually take it). Once it gets going, you’ll have so much green in there. I love it. There’s also several color varieties so you don’t have to stick with just the green kind if you want more interesting colors: satin pothos is my absolute favorite. Marble queen (I think) is also another pretty one.

I also have: 

  • croton - beautiful plant with colorful leaves, but it gets pretty big so there has to be space for it. However, there are several kinds of croton, including small ones with different shaped leaves, that work as well. I’m not sure what the exact croton I use is called, but I think a lot of stores like walmart and lowes where i shop for plants consider it a sort of “generic” croton
  • maranta - another one that grows very quickly, and it’s beautiful, but more picky on growing conditions than pothos. My best growing maranta is on the cool/humid side under the light
  • creeping fig - this one grows pretty quickly, and looks nice. it’s small and a little more delicate while it’s acclimating. If you introduce it before the animal is in, it should be okay. If it is added later, pay it special attention daily to make sure it can acclimate. 
  • rainbow spike moss - this is one of my favorites, but i’ve found it to be quite challenging to establish. I have some growing pretty well in one tank right now (and a few growing outside my vivs just for fun), but i’ve made several attempts inside the tanks before which have all ended with a dead plant. They’re very picky. The one I have in the viv right now is planted right next to the maranta, in the cool/humid side. 
  • bonsai tree - i have one i picked up from walmart. i’m not sure what kind it is, but i really like having it in there

A few others I don’t have right now but that I’d still recommend:

  • fittonia (nerve plant)
  • polka dot plant
  • snake plant
  • spider plant
  • pilea, begonia, and/or bromeliads

I really love browsing for plants whenever I can, and if you get the chance to check out local stores with nurseries, you’ll find plenty that aren’t on this list. There are so many. The things you want to look for when considering a plant are it’s temperature, water, and light needs, as well as if it can survive a large snake sitting on top of it. Soil needs are also a factor: specific pH requirements can affect whether the plant will thrive in your substrate or not. 

As well, you’ll want to clean every plant you get, to make sure you aren’t bringing in outside contaminants that could harm your snake or other plants. Things like pests and fertilizers. It’s called plant processing, and is pretty easy and doesn’t usually take very long. You’ll also want to make sure the plant is safe for your reptile! This is my favorite list to check when looking at a new plant. It is extensive and lists the BAD plants, but also why they are bad (for instance, is it bad only if eaten, or is it bad for them to touch? etc)

If you have any other questions about this or anything else about bio, please feel free to ask! I am very happy to offer what help I can. And this goes for anyone: You can ask on anon, or if you want a private conversation, I won’t publish any asks if you don’t want them published. And I’m just as comfortable talking on the IM. Whichever makes you most comfortable I am fine with. I just want to put that out there so you don’t feel like you *have* to stay on anon if you don’t want to. 

Anyway, hope this helped, and good luck if you choose to go through with bioactive! 

Who the heck cares about a book tower when you have the unreleased ACOWAR?
No one. That’s who.
Absolutely no one.

This is also a pretty accurate depiction of what the fandom will look like in 24 days. 🦇

“From the beginning you and the dragon had been one. You are becoming, and the dragon is your higher self.”

The way this show is currently paralleling Will Graham and Francis Dolarhyde is absolutely brilliant. The above conversation is even more significant when you consider Bedelia telling Will that he is capable of righteous violence because he is compassionate, and that extreme acts of cruelty require high levels of empathy, certainly something Will is in no short supply of.

Dolarhyde is not killing his victims because he wants to inflict pain upon them. In his madness he believes he is helping them. He believes he is elevating them to their higher selves by giving them to the darkness within himself that he calls the dragon. This is righteous violence. This is his compassion. But Hannibal knows that this darkness is something that has been inside him all along, and this harkens back to Will at the end of season 2. As he attempted to trick and trap Hannibal, Will unlocked a part of his nature that has always been present, and is just as natural to him as being sweet and good and kind, which he undoubtedly is. But as he said earlier this season, he never knew himself more than he did when he was with Hannibal.

And speaking of which, as soon as Dolarhyde said this:

I was immediately reminded of this:

Molly is to Will as Reba is to Dolarhyde. Through her he has found an escape from the darker side of himself. He consumed the Blake painting because he wanted to desperately to be someone else for her. He wants to step away from the darkness and into the light, but to do so would be to deny half of his true self, and Hannibal is dependent on him embracing that darkness at this point.

Hannibal’s ethics and motivations are fascinating. He is undeniably capable of experiencing love, but the nature of that love and the nature of who he is twists it and turns it into a truly destructive force. He likes testing people, he likes placing them in situations where they have a choice to do right or wrong to see which they will choose, and he is no stranger to a good old game of cat and mouse. But his motivations with Dolarhyde go a bit deeper than that… I believe he thinks if he can help Dolarhyde become his higher self, if he can help him become the dragon, then he can help Will come around again too. He can pull him away from his family (the family that he believes is a poor replacement for the family they were creating together) and back into his orbit. 

A striking difference between the canon of the books and what took place on the show is that Hannibal did not send Dolarhyde after Will AND his family… he only sent him after Molly and Walter. Hannibal doesn’t want Dolarhyde to kill Will in this universe, but he is unbelievably jealous and wants Will’s new family out of the picture as soon as possible. This isn’t simply about playing a game out of boredom for him. In the end it all comes down to his deep and twisted love for Will Graham.

Will and Molly love one another, there is no doubt about that, but we are being shown through visual subtext and absolutely blatant and heavy handed dialogue that Will and Hannibal belong together. They are two sides of the same coin, but Will’s true destiny to be with Hannibal cannot be realized until he learns to, once again, give in to his own becoming.

Will wanted to run away with Hannibal not only because they were friends, or because they truly do love one another on a deep and profound level, but because through Hannibal, Will found his freedom. His transformation at the end of season 2 also felt very deliberate, it began as a premeditated plan to capture Hannibal after all, but it resulted in Will discovering the true nature of the beast residing in his own belly. A part of him will always want to be with Hannibal, will always wish they had run away together all those years ago, and I guess only time (aka the final two episodes) will tell if that part of himself will be victorious in the end.
