If you had 30 seconds to convince humans to not kill you for food what would you say? Would you cry out loud, beg and plead humanity to eat the other foods that are available? Or would you go willingly towards your killer and accept your death? The animals of this world used for food, clothing, entertainment, and experimentation have no choice and they go unheard, but we have a choice and we can use our voice. We can choose the vegan alternatives which don’t contribute to the corporations who make billions out of cruelty, who are causing environmental devastation, and who are lying to the public to keep us in a state of ignorance. And we can use our voice to speak out against injustices. If the animals had 30 seconds to speak our language and defend themselves, they’d choose the same as you, life.

Garden of Evil (BTS Pick Your Path Scenario)

I don’t know. This just kind of came to me yesterday and I really wanted to write a blurb for it. If you guys really like me, I have ideas for full out scenarios if you guys really like it. Please let me know what you think <3

-Admin Kat

You stared at the illuminated sign; Garden of Evil. You walked into the club, the sound of music blaring into your ear as you walked into the dark, underground building. The sensation of music throbbing through the ground into your feet caused your legs to quiver. The club was clearly a play on the Garden of Eden, but opposites. The lighting was dim and flickered as though the room was filled with fire; like the pits of hell. People were dressed as though they were either angels or demons. That was the theme of the night after all. You wore a white dress that reached a bit below your knees and short sleeves that hung off the shoulders. As you came down to the main floor, a man dressed as a devil; a red mask and a black suit, came up to you with a pair of horns in one hand and a halo headband in the other.

“Angel or demon?” He asked you as you came up to him. You smiled at him, a shy type of smile, and gestured towards your dress.

“Angel.” You had to yell over the sound of the deafening music. He handed you the halo and gave you his hand. You hesitantly took it, still a bit unsure why you were there. You had heard about this club from some kids in your college class, but you had no idea about it. You were not one to come to a club like this, but after the lovely break up with your boyfriend, you couldn’t help but seek a distraction. What would be a better than a sinful club to keep your mind off your ex?

You took your hand and continued with him further into the throngs of sweaty, horny young adults thrusting their bodies against each other in an orgy of rhythmic grinding. He brought you through the crowd, weaving meticulously through the bodies. You felt hands grazing over your body; pinching, pulling on your dress, and light caresses. You tried to not yank yourself away from them, not wanting to seem like a prude in a place like this, and just continued to make your way with your hand tightly holding the devil man’s.

He stopped abruptly once you were out of the crowd. You were standing in front of seven doors, each with a symbol above it. Each symbol was a color matched with an animal. Violet horse, green dog, orange pig, red cow, black bear, yellow frog, and blue goat. The devil man came around you, placing his hands on your shoulders. You felt a shudder run down your spine at the proximity of him. He lowered himself so his mouth, or at least the mouth of his mask, was at your ear. “Pick your sin.”

You held out your finger towards the…

Violet Horse

Green Dog

Orange pig

Red Cow

Black Bear

Yellow Frog

Blue Goat

  • RITUALS: burying things, clay work, planting trees/herbs/flowers/plants, hiking and spending time with nature in general.
  • EARTH PERSONALITIES: Are usually the most trustful, determined, loyal, responsible and giving people you could ever hope to meet. When they are balanced and in touch with their element of the Earth they are honest, open-minded, trustworthy and they always keep their promises. They’re the kind of people that like things to go according to plan; they hate when things suddenly change on them but, can adapt very easily with little effort. They are kind and strong individuals who are there to pick up people when and if they fall down. On the other hand, when Earth personalities are not in balance with themselves, they can be very different people. They can be selfish, insincere, insecure and often participate in self-destructive behaviors. They tend to ignore other people’s opinions and stick to a very narrow and close-minded way of thinking. For Earth personalities to reconnect, they only have to spend time in nature.
Weird theory size thing

Bananas can fit in your hand right? Good. How the HECK are RainWings able to live off just fruit! A banana should be the size of a blueberry to them! We have seen dragons feeding fruit to scavengers and it’s almost as if they were the size of hamsters. Like seriously how does this work? Trees must be like bushes to dragons, and so the rain forest trees must be HUGE!!!!

So let’s say everything is just dragon sized. But then how did scavengers even roam the continent before without being eaten by a cow or starving to death? The trees are too tall and the animals bigger than you! Also shouldn’t rabbits, shrimp and fish would never be a sustainable meal! JUST HOW!?!?!?!


Tbh I think this might be one of the inconsistencies in Tui’s writing.

For the fruit part, I can imagine there being various sizes of fruit that are more filling to dragons. There would also be smaller ones, the sizes we are more used to. 

For the animals, I’m kind of at a loss as well. To me I think stuff like cows, bears, and generally larger animals could be a sustainable meal for one dragon. Plus, I personally like to think dragons only need a full meal every once in a while (similar to snakes).

Maybe smaller stuff (bunnies, shrimp, teeny bananas) are considered little finger food snacks? Lol.

anonymous asked:

Could you point me in the direction of any specific posts or other resources you know of (if any) that focus around being non-binary and having a connection with Loki? This is one huge reason why I'm so drawn to Loki and I'd love to read about others' experiences too. Secondly, do you think it's OK to use a variety of pronouns for Loki? I've seen a lot of people use him but I'm wondering if her, zir, etc might also be OK to switch between. Thank you!

While the Norse didn’t view gender the same way as we do today, or have a label equivalent to non-binary or genderqueer, Loki explicitly goes against gender norms quite a bit in the lore. In that sense, it’s not inaccurate to say Loki could be interpreted as non-binary in a modern context. Some examples of Loki transgressing gender norms in the Eddas include:

  • The one everyone knows: Turning into a mare and giving birth to Sleipnir in Gylfaginning
  • Spending eight years under the earth milking cows and bearing children (mentioned in Lokasenna)
  • Eating a witches heart and becoming impregnated, resulting in him becoming the “mother of all monsters” (Hyndluljóð)
  • Cross-dressing to help Thor retrieve Mjolnir (Þrymskviða)
  • The whole incident with tying a goat to his balls to amuse Skadi in Gylfaginning may have been an allusion to or have symbolism related to castration (see Norse Mythology by John Lindow)
  • Shapeshifting was considered a “queer” act (see “Óðinn as Mother: The Old Norse Deviant Patriarch” by Ármann Jakobsson)
  • Loki may be implied to have possibly slept with Odin (Lokasenna) and Thor (Þrymskviða), in a culture where having sexual relations with other men was seen as making a man less “manly”
  • Loki disguises himself as a woman twice in the story of Baldr’s death in Gylfaginning: the first time to learn Baldr’s weakness from Frigg, the second time to pose as a female jotun who refuses to cry, breaking the agreement with Hel and ensuring Baldr remains dead.

Note that the Norse would not have seen many of these acts as socially acceptable. But that doesn’t change the fact that there is extensive support for Loki sleeping with people of more than one gender and for not conforming to gender roles. Therefore, Loki is a very popular deity for modern Heathens to consult when struggling with orientation or gender identity, or when facing prejudice because of it. He’s been there, and he provides an opportunity for non-binary and other LGBT+ individuals to see themselves in the divine in a way that many converts were denied in the religion they were raised in.

In terms of pronouns, Loki is grammatically treated as male in the lore. That’s why we typically stick to he/him on this blog, so complete newbies don’t get confused. However, many modern devotees do refer to Loki with gender-neutral pronouns, or alternating pronouns.

Just be careful to avoid attributing certain personality qualities to particular gendered aspects. For example, you shouldn’t paint “female” Loki as more compassionate or nurturing or “male” Loki as more brooding or vengeful or whatever. As a non-binary person, you have probably noticed that your personality doesn’t change based on your gender presentation. And perpetuating the social construct of attributing certain qualities to certain genders is very damaging to everyone.

I don’t know of a masterpost or anything, but a lot of fellow Lokeans are non-binary, myself included. Enough that I don’t even want to start naming people because I know I’m going to inevitably leave a bunch of awesome folks out. While there’s not necessarily a ton of articulating the role of non-binary gender identity in Norse paganism in a formal way. a lot of people mention it here and there in personal posts. Readers, feel free to sound off in the replies or reblogs if you’ve written about this stuff, so the anon can find you!

The nbmysteries roundtable a couple years back, while not Loki-specific, may also be of interest, as a couple of Lokeans participated.

it is right there, in this text you hold sacred,
in this book you call “good”.

the vision is a beautiful one,
full of mystery and paradox and peace:
the wolf and the lamb,
the leopard and kid,
the calf, the lion, the fatling,
the cow and bear
and all their children,
playing, living, together,
led by a child.

“how beautiful!”
you say, and paint paintings
and sing songs
and celebrate this vision

and it is beautiful.
it is also unnatural.

these instinctive relationships
these clearly established hierarchies
these unshakable binaries:
predator,
prey,
built into DNA,
built into the natural order,
set aside for a higher purpose–
peace.

and you call us unnatural.
you spit that word at us as an insult.
we, who redefine relationships
and challenge hierarchies
and break binaries –
and so you come to our holy places
to hurt and destroy us

because you cannot see:
your vision of peace is queer.

– A piece by my friend Slats in their Queering Lent series
