Bellamy trudged through the forest catologing every new scent as he went. This was the territory him and his pack wanted. The sun had barely risen, causing a faint light to move through the trees, the forest floor was damp from the night’s rain causing the crushed pine leaves to make the air smell minty. It was cold but they were all built like heaters so he walked out in his shirt and jeans, his combat boots easily moving through the undergrowth. Two members of his pack followed him, he had only betas, considering they had been turned and not born into the pack. A fiery redhead moved on his right, he was vicious when it came to his people. He knew that first hand, watching the other rip out another wolf’s throat for harming one of his pack mates. Andy. On his left was a pale brunette he moved with fawn like grace through the forest, his eyes trained on the pine trees towering above their heads. He was taller than Bellamy and his eyes were a piercing blue, he was nimble and the fastest in their pack. Leo.
They were quite away from their own territory at this point, he had arranged a meeting with another pack. Wanting to discuss the territory that had been vacated by a pack that had moved upstate. He wanted it. Of course the other pack did too, so they decided to meet in the middle. They weren’t in each others territory because wolves could be quite defensive when it came to their home. He licked his lips and stopped in his tracks when he spotted the familiar silver hair of the Alpha. His eyes bled red and his lips curled into a slight snarl, but Leo’s hand on his shoulder calmed him down. The familiar scent of pack sending his senses straight and his features to go back to a more neutral look. “Glad you could make it.” He stated, once the pack showed themselves he noticed that the Alpha had brought three of his pack. He crossed his arms over his chest in a defensive position, he had trained his wolf not to go completely insane when he saw another Alpha but the itch in his chest was still there. Wanting to rip out the man’s throat and watch his silver hair stain red. “Shall we begin.”
Bad catologing practices of library predecessors making gems like Custard the Cowardly Dragon impossible to find by subject search.
Seriously. Just a title and author in the bib record DOES NOT CUT IT PEOPLE!
This is a recurring problem and the reason why I can’t sleep at night.
1. What’s your favourite band and your favourite music genre?
This is a hard one. I listen to a lot of music. I think though I can say the one artist I keep coming back to and finding more depth in their catolog is Tom Waits, he’s been making music for SO FUCKING LONG that there’s something for almost anyone. Also, I respect the hell out of him being a weird man who no one can measure up to.
2. What country would you like to visit and why?
There’s a lot of them, but my partner and I just added Vietnam to the list because we’d love to see the Son Doong cave in person. I’ve also never been to the Czech Republic, which is where my dad’s side of the family is from, and I’d like to see it.
3. What’s your favourite Pokémon and Pokémon type? If you don’t play Pokémon, what’s your favourite video game?
Favourite type is definitely Ghosts, I grew up with Gen 1 where they’re OP as fuck. My fave pokemon though is Alakazam, because giant psychic mustache man.
4. What’s your favourite flower?
The Species of Aster named after one of my relatives.
5. What’s on your bedroom’s walls?
2 original 19-century biological prints by Ernst Haeckel. My partner deals with rare books and they were a parting gift from a former employer. Absolutely gorgeous work.
6. Is there any food you truly loathe?
Most cooked veggies. I’m very much a textural eater and the sliminess they acquire sometimes while being cooked is stomach turning for me.
7. If you could change the colour of anything (for example: the sea, the mountains, etc.) what would it be and which colour would you choose?
Permanently grey skies (yes, I am aware that the pacific northwest exists, I have lived there and miss it greatly)
8. Wich animal would you like to have as pet (something you can’t usually have like a tiger or a dolphin)?
A bear. I am a bear, ergo it’d be the perfect matching pet. Large, hairy and hibernating.
9. What’s your favourite season and why?
Given I live in Texas, the ones that don’t literally have a chance of killing me in my sleep if the power goes out.
10. What’s your favourite anime? If you don’t watch anime, what’s your favourite cartoon?
Evangelion is probably the best anime I’ve seen from a technical perspective. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is probably my favorite in terms of enjoyability.
11. If you were a planeswalker, what colour would you be and what would be your specialty?
Esper Colors and probably an artificer. I may be saying this because so far there are 2 Legendary Esper artificers and that means a 50% chance of being illustrated by my idol Terese Nielsen. Also as stated previously, I hate fun.
You know those guys in middle school who wore plaid shorts, and drank Monster and didn’t strap their helmets? The ones that looked like they stepped out of a spring edition of a Kmart catolog? What happened to those guys, where are they now?
