samsung: this dragon is my best friend. will protect her with my life. just trying to share the magic orb. cute whiskers, cute horns, cute tail. i love her
emoji one: simple design, excellent execution. complete with adorable tongue and beard. a magnificent beast.
facebook: fierce, majestic flying serpent. a poufy tail, a lovely orange mane, long, flowing whiskers. this girl could fly away with my heart, and also a chinese river.
microsoft: lovely orange fans. he’s still growing and learning, but he’ll get there. steps on his own tail sometimes. doing his best.
emojidex: old dragon but good dragon. fur instead of scales gives points for uniqueness, as do the interesting horns, but our old guy seems to be in an uncomfortable position.
messenger: this dragon enjoys reading about history. seems to be missing her back feet. also could do with some core excersizes, as her head seems to be a tad big for her body. she has many passions, and gets easily distracted.
apple: while the design is there, the actual execution seems to have gone a bit off. tail is too twisted to be comfy, and the modeling is pretty badly done. greedy for the orb; loses points for unwillingness to share.
mozilla: this dragon is very confused, but she’s at least trying to share the orb. two arms on one side?
HTC: only dragon on the list with wings, however, this dragon is not only blind but seems to have a dysfunctional single foot and a stub tail. and a leaf for an ear.
twitter: designer seems to have a vague understanding of how hands work. the poor dragon’s head is far too big for his body.
LG: seems in theory a good design, but in reality, this dragon is fucking ugly.
google: basic misunderstanding of limbs and linework. an revolting mess.
It’s fitting that Robert Pattinson’s old friend Eddie Redmayne is also a Hufflepuff (Fantastic Beasts). “Loyalty…fierce friendships…hard working…compassionate,” are the words Eddie used to describe Hufflepuffs, and those certainly apply to how Rob lives his real life. Eddie said he auditioned for the role of Tom Riddle but was so nervous, he failed miserably. He’s always wanted to be part of the HP franchise. (I’ve always thought TomStu would have been a perfect Tom Riddle.)
Rob and Eddie’s friendship goes back to 2005 when both were chosen as “Stars of Tomorrow,” along with fellow Brit packer Tom Sturridge. “I’ve known Robert for a long time. There was a load of us trying to make ends meet back in London.” ~ Eddie Redmayne
sometimes I feel like I am a growling beast.
red eyes, black fur
silver-tipped teeth of hatred
green ichor running through my blood.
I feel alive with the sensation of tugging;
drawn in breaths,
held in words
like my mind is to be flooded with thoughts
that make no home.
I feel like a sauntering wolf,
all fierce fire and
black-gaited claws that run rampant over
flesh and torn dreams.
I feel like destruction,
loneliness wrapped in fur,
apocalypse written in my bones since the day I was born.
I feel like Fenrir
gripping the edge of the world so tightly in jaws
meant to cry,
all those around me
i’m scared to show you the shards in case you bleed. Krys Kazik.
Getting a Tattoo Headcannon: Fantastic Beasts Characters
his original plan was to get a nature-related tattoo, because newt wanted to symbolize that he cared about animals and protecting them, but he also wanted to protect their environment and everything else. that why none of them would go extinct.
but whenever newt thought of his animals, he was reminded of how much travelling it had involved to rescue them, and how much he did like travelling, and how it brought him to tina, jacob, queenie. so it turns out that travelling is meaningful to him.
“You’re the Cream in My Coffee” by Ruth Etting was playing on the radio when he and newt met the goldstein sisters for the first time. or, more specifically: the first time jacob met queenie.
it’s one of the most important things to ever happen to jacob, and he wanted a tattoo that would symbolize that without it being overly corny/cheesy or what have you. so he settled on a cup of coffee right near his ear.
this how queenie and their parents used to describe tina. she is little and fierce and she is determined. she will fight for what she believes in. she is unstoppable. she is a tsunami of brains and power.
nobody expects queenie to get a damn white stallion tattoo. everybody always thought she’d get something small and cute, like a bee or a little flower - maybe an anchor with tina’s name in it.
the truth is that her patronus is a white stallion, and she just likes to feel protected all the time by having it on her skin. it makes her feel safe to see her patronus in ink form when she has to pass a man or woman thinking nasty thoughts about her.
i know this doesn’t line up chronologically given when things actually happened in history. BUT. i have a headcannon that credence read “Caged Bird” by Maya Angelou at some point in his life.
he was the caged bird once. he knew why the caged bird sang (because of magic), and why it stopped (mary lou). but now he was free. now he had just to get out of his cage and leave it behind forever.
🌹 Shameless self congratulation: after years of treatment for mental health issues, getting clean, and two reconstructive surgeries on my leg, I’m finally starting to feel capable of athletic level training and improvement again. Knowing the capability was there in the past, but having either my head or my body let me down in different ways was a m’fucker and at times pretty heartbreaking, so feeling stronger right now has me feeling relieved to my bones and back.
