Bearded fireworm (Hermodice carunculata)

The bearded fireworm is a type of marine bristleworm belonging to the Amphinomidae family, native to the tropical Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Bearded fireworms are usually 15 cm in average length, but can reach up to 30 cm. At first glance, this fire worm looks like a centipede with its elongated and flattened appearance, multiple segments, white silks, and parapodia and gills located on the side of its body. Its colors are varied and range from greenish, to yellowish, to reddish, grayish through white with a pearly glow. The body consists of 60 to 150 identical segments separated from each other by a thin white line and protected by cuticles. Each segment has a pair of parapodia, a structure for locomotion, clusters of stinging white bristles, and red or orange gills all in bilateral position. The bearded fireworm is a voracious predator and feeds on dead or decaying organisms and coral polyps.

Silver soared across the Aquatic Base’s fatal drop on currents of neon-green telekinesis, but never once did he look down; his bulbous eyes instead stayed immovably fixed on the figure before him.

Twisting sinuously, Fire Worm’s body betrayed his true nature: layers of rock-hard armor on the outside encasing an inner form glowing with red-hot passion.

Not anymore, thought Silver as his body slammed into Fire Worm’s face and sent them tumbling together on the ground in a warm, sticky tangle of lava, flesh, stone, and fur.

“I’ve got a worm of my own to give you,” Silver cooed, gingerly stroking his lover’s tri-mandibled face.

Fire Worm’s glow intensified in what Silver recognized as a blush. “I want to resist you, baby… but no matter how hard I try, I never can.”

Silver smirked as he moved to Fire Worm’s backside, lining up his hips to the proper spot. Beneath him, he felt Fire Worm shudder in desire.

“It’s no use,” Silver winked, then thrust his hips forward mightily. “Take this!”

“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory….

…If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape?….

If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then…’s our plain duty to escape…

And to take as many people with us as we can!”

Character Sheet: The Root Pack

The Root Pack is one of the bosses on Inkwell Isle 1 as well as one of the first bosses the player will encounter. It is by far one of the easiest fights, and is fairly easy to figure out and get the hang of.

Moe Tato: The potato is the first stage of the boss fight. Little is known about Moe Tato’s personality besides that he seems to like to eat dirt and worms, as shown by his only attack. To me, this points evidence to him being the jock or daredevil of the group. Sort of the brawn, but not really the brains. During his stage, he will spit three balls of dirt and mud at you before firing a worm that you can parry.

Weepy: Weepy is the onion that spawns in the middle of the boss fight after you defeat Moe Tato. In simple mode, the fight with Weepy is skipped, and the player goes straight to fighting Psycarrot after defeating Moe Tato. After looking around fearfully, Weepy will start to cry, tears falling down in different intervals, pink tears also falling for the player to parry. The character of weepy strikes me as the one Moe Tato and Psycarrot protect. He appears to have Pantophobia, or the fear of everything.

Psycarrot: Ah yes, the leader of the root pack. Psycarrot appears in the background and does not have any attacks to parry. The large carrot will summon homing mini carrots to attack you with, and while there is nothing to parry, the player can shoot them in order to destroy them. After several homing carrots are created, he will give the player a short break before opening his third eye and firing lasers from it three times before going back to the carrots after another break. The leader of the Root Pack is shown to be malicious, crazy, and maniacal.


  • There was originally supposed to be four Root Pack members, but the fourth, Betty Beet, was cut from the Garden.
    • She was the only female of the group. 

(Concept art of Betty Beet.)

    • Weepy supposedly replaced Betty, but comments from the game devs somewhat proves that weepy was added in while Betty was in the picture.
      • “She didn’t make the cut for the garden bosses.” – Developers of Cuphead, regarding Betty Beet
  • The Root Pack’s name is a reference to the Rat Pack, a 1950′s group of entertainers.
    • The group included Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop.
  • Weepy’s crying attack is a reference to how cutting onions often causes people to tear up.
    • Additionally, Psycarrot’s mystical abilities are a nod to the supposed fact that carrots are good for your eyes.

So dnd canonically exists in worm and despite my current general distaste for worm fanfics (the copious ooc and boring wish fulfillment not worth wading into) I would love to see a fanfic that’s just the undersiders playing dnd. I know worm d20 exists but that’s about if worm was actually a rpg campaign people were playing and not if the characters themselves were playing because with the undersiders personalities (even if it were just taylor or lisa alone) it would be a hilarious dumpster fire. 

  • concept: delphine has disappeared. everything goes to shit. people have worms. fire is everywhere. canada is burning down. a car pulls up at the end of episode 10 and delphine gets out and rolls her eyes
The LORD Jesus said:

42 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe to stumble, it would be better for him if, with a heavy millstone hung around his neck, he had been cast into the sea. 43 If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life crippled, than, having your two hands, to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire, 44 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched. 45 If your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame, than, having your two feet, to be cast into hell, 46 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched. 47 If your eye causes you to stumble, throw it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, than, having two eyes, to be cast into hell, 48 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.

49 “For everyone will be salted with fire. 50 Salt is good; but if the salt becomes unsalty, with what will you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.”

From the Book of Mark 9 (NASB)

theload  asked:

I'm curious, what dragon tropes do you like, and what ones don't you like?

The first one is kinda tricky because as someone that loves monsters in all forms, I’m in the camp that goes “if you wanna take something and name it a dragon, do it” So you want classic winged reptiles? Giant mutant worms? Fire-breathing flying manta rays? I’m game

What I don’t like is the “dragons are inherently better that humans” thing. Everyone that does that basically makes up dragons as fancy elves, and elves are just so uniformly BORING. It’s why I am so much into old medieval bestiary dragons. Bring back the nasty assholes!


A new species is finally available from the Felt Cave! Yay! Here are the bright and cheerful element themed Slow Glow Worms! These are poseable and can be wrapped around things like lamps. Emerald, Lightning and Molten Worms are now up for sale in my etsy shop

this whole scene is really extra

so luke’s trying to recruit people to his new jedi, and he finds this dude who’s force sensitive. and this dude goes “okay, well, i guess i’ll join, but only if you pass my tests that i’m really hoping will kill you first because i don’t trust you”

and one of these tests is to walk across a pool of lava. the first half is not too bad—there are stepping stones, of sorts. (although as someone who lives on a volcano, let me tell you, even being within a couple feet of lava is extremely unpleasant, and that’s without standing in the middle of a giant pool of it. and those stepping stones? even if they’re not actually molten, they’re going to be the same temperature as that lava. i hope luke’s boots have some really heavy duty insulation)

but then: a giant fire worm comes out and tries to eat luke. its scales are, of course, impervious to lightsabers, because how else is it supposed to survive swimming in molten lava? luke fights and manages to kill it, but in the process it knocks away all the stepping stones. but luke’s chill, just goes, “alright, well i still have to get this guy to become a jedi, so time to walk across the lava"

and that’s exactly what he does
