I just got done with some fun May shows and I have artwork leftover, so look out for incoming Etsy listings. I’m also very excited to say that I will be moving into a larger space this summer, which means I’ll have greater capacity for creating larger work - yay!
the glow of celestial frost dances like cloud dust over the pisces head. they present a bouquet of healing and soothing frequencies, so disturbed and lost people are drawn to their healing lamp, and this can be the pisces redemption or betrayal. they let people into their hearts and some refuse to leave
- A notices a change in behaviour from B, and when A asks
what is wrong, B tells them that their family and them have been arguing again,
so A tells them that they can come over to A’s house, so they don’t have to
stay in that environment anymore, B tears up and hugs A, and A and B talk about
what happened and A listens to everything that B has to say
- A really want to see the Moon tonight because it is
special celestial event, but the clouds come and block the beauty of the Moon
and A gets really upset so B tells A to jump in their vehicle and they are
going to drive until they can see the moon
- A looses their pet dog and B helps them look for it in the
area, and A starts to cry because their dog is like their child, they have a
hard time parting with them for a couple of hours, let alone this, and B wraps
their arms around A as A cries into them
- A makes B watch a sad movie, and B knows that A is going
to cry at the end, so B keeps the tissues and chocolates close, they then wrap
a fluffy blanket around A and A leans into B, so then B puts their arm around A
- A isn’t completely over C and C shows up to the dance,
that A is going to, with D on their arm, so B asks them to dance and A and B
have the best time ever, and A completely forgets about C
- A’s vehicle breaks down on the highway in the middle of
the night and A is frantic because they don’t know how to fix it, and they call
B to help and B rushes over and fixes A’s vehicle, and reassures them that
everything is going to be okay, as they wipe away A’s tears
- A really wants to go to an art gallery because a piece is
being sold, and it was their late mother’s, but the gallery refused to give
them the piece, and are auctioning it off, so B goes with A, and A looses the
auction, but B wins it for A using their savings, and A couldn’t be happier
that B got it for them
- A becomes a vampire and B has to console them because all
A ever wanted was to have their own kids, but now that has all be ripped away
from them, so B stays with them and holds them in their arms as A cries
- A breaks down because of the mental stress of university
and B comes over and tells them that they will over come this, because university
isn’t life, it’s just a chapter, not A’s life, and A starts to feel a lot
better when B puts everything into perspective for them
- A and B go canoeing and they loose a paddle and B realizes
that they are in the middle of the lake, they can’t see the shore and a storm
is coming, and B starts to panic because they didn’t even want to be out on the
lake in the first place, and A has to calm them down and wipe their tears away
an Uliro Week Fic day one: endurance/weakness rating: T for some semi-graphic imagery [also on AO3]
This actually was supposed to be a birthday gift!fic for @queenvallkyrie; I got so stupidly swamped I wasn’t able to finish it anywhere near in time. So here it is - double-dipping for uliro week, and for a friend. :) Happy very very belated birthday!
“It’s gorgeous,” Pidge breathes. Her eyes are sparkling as she gazes out the enormous window, nose pressed flat against the glass. “Wow.”
“A truly rare sight,” Coran agrees, smiling from his position at his control console. “You don’t come across a big ol’ ion storm very often these days. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
“I can’t believe it,” Lance agrees. His face is smooshed at the window next to Pidge. “Wow! Look at that!”
Outside the wide windows of the bridge, space is lit up in absolutely stunning colors. Huge clouds of dark purples and orange billow all around them, the unique particles and matter spinning in their celestial, dangerous dance. Violet clouds stream past the windows as the Castle sails through, thrusters slow and steady. Sparks of ice-green lightning flash in the depths of the clouds; the lightning is not unlike a thunderstorm, or so Ulaz has been assured. He does not quite understand, but it is the term Lance continues to use - a “space thunderstorm” - and Ulaz has no wish to cause dissent. Sometimes agreeing with Lance is just easier.
Appearing like a winged fairy-tale creature poised on a pedestal, this object is actually a billowing tower of cold gas and dust rising from a stellar nursery called the Eagle Nebula. The soaring tower is 9.5 light-years or about 57 trillion miles high, about twice the distance from our Sun to the next nearest star.
Stars in the Eagle Nebula are born in clouds of cold hydrogen gas that reside in chaotic neighborhoods, where energy from young stars sculpts fantasy-like landscapes in the gas. The tower may be a giant incubator for those newborn stars. A torrent of ultraviolet light from a band of massive, hot, young stars [off the top of the image] is eroding the pillar.
The starlight also is responsible for illuminating the tower’s rough surface. Ghostly streamers of gas can be seen boiling off this surface, creating the haze around the structure and highlighting its three-dimensional shape. The column is silhouetted against the background glow of more distant gas.
The edge of the dark hydrogen cloud at the top of the tower is resisting erosion, in a manner similar to that of brush among a field of prairie grass that is being swept up by fire. The fire quickly burns the grass but slows down when it encounters the dense brush. In this celestial case, thick clouds of hydrogen gas and dust have survived longer than their surroundings in the face of a blast of ultraviolet light from the hot, young stars.
Inside the gaseous tower, stars may be forming. Some of those stars may have been created by dense gas collapsing under gravity. Other stars may be forming due to pressure from gas that has been heated by the neighboring hot stars.
The first wave of stars may have started forming before the massive star cluster began venting its scorching light. The star birth may have begun when denser regions of cold gas within the tower started collapsing under their own weight to make stars.
The bumps and fingers of material in the center of the tower are examples of these stellar birthing areas. These regions may look small but they are roughly the size of our solar system. The fledgling stars continued to grow as they fed off the surrounding gas cloud. They abruptly stopped growing when light from the star cluster uncovered their gaseous cradles, separating them from their gas supply.
Ironically, the young cluster’s intense starlight may be inducing star formation in some regions of the tower. Examples can be seen in the large, glowing clumps and finger-shaped protrusions at the top of the structure. The stars may be heating the gas at the top of the tower and creating a shock front, as seen by the bright rim of material tracing the edge of the nebula at top, left. As the heated gas expands, it acts like a battering ram, pushing against the darker cold gas. The intense pressure compresses the gas, making it easier for stars to form. This scenario may continue as the shock front moves slowly down the tower.
The dominant colors in the image were produced by gas energized by the star cluster’s powerful ultraviolet light. The blue color at the top is from glowing oxygen. The red color in the lower region is from glowing hydrogen. The Eagle Nebula image was taken in November 2004 with the Advanced Camera for Surveys aboard NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope.
