♛So Sorry Guys. Link fixed

✒ Is the Fox personal bodyguard a male or female?

The Fox is a lady…? To be honest, I didn’t have a gender in mind when I design the fox, so feel free to interpret it anyway you like :)

Will we be seeing any more new faces in the animal court?

There will be other minor characters, such as other soldiers, maids, butlers, gardeners and royal members. And of course the King and Queen of the Goose and Swan kingdom. However majority of the story will still focus on the core 7 below.

Good luck with your blog, darl' ( i'm already in love with it ♡). May I ask some fluff hcs with the junkers duo? Poly or separated (as you wish) with fem reader? *kisses*

D’awww, thank you so much! Decided to do them separate because I felt like I’d have more to write this way ♥ But if anyone would like a poly version in the future, feel free to request it! Went ahead and added the Queen as well - hope that’s cool! Hers are the shortest obvs since all we’ve got to go by her is a poster and some voicelines but they’re called headcanons for a reason, I guess? Haha! I’m sorry if some of these don’t seem fluffy, I tried, just let me know if I need to do better next time hun ♥

Fluff Headcanons for the Junkers

Junkrat

  • It’s hard to have a sad day with him by your side! If he’s not telling you shitty funny puns and lame jokes, he’s doing something silly and entertaining the hope of making you laugh. 
  • Very clingy. Touch-starved. Physical contact with you is addicting to him, and he’ll often get feelings of dread when you’re apart.
  • If you’re shorter than him (which is likely) he’ll very awkwardly cuddle with you, never minding if you’re busy, your hands are full, etc. Think of it like when you’re sitting down reading or on your computer and suddenly five cats all climb up on you and try to find the comfiest spot. Yeah, Junkrat basically feels like five cats. Very grabby, loves nuzzling into your neck, and hugging you.
  • If you massage his head and/or run your fingers through his hair repetitively, he mellows out. He’s fallen asleep because of this on more than one occasion. 
  • You can make this boy’s day by flaunting your love in public. It’s not the PDA itself that drives him crazy, but it’s the fact that you’re not “embarrassed” to be seen with him - makes his confidence level skyrocket. Loves letting everyone know you’re together, and likes to see the look on everyone else’s face when they see that he’d snagged such a wonderful person such as yourself.
  • Lots and lots of love letters. Both his penmanship and his spelling ability are that of a nine year old, and he doesn’t always have the “best” choice of words, but his heart is poured out into each and every single letter. He’ll leave them in random places he knows you’ll look, like when you wake up in the morning and go to fix your hair - there’s a note from him right under your hairbrush. 
  •  Getting him anything old/vintage, scrapped parts from various machinery would be a wonderful present on any occasion. He gets super creative and will often make you jewlery from scrap. It’s all super cheesy, from heart-shaped pieces of metal strung from a necklace, to rings with the both of your names engraved in them. You build up quite the collection.
  • Physically cannot go to sleep unless you’ve exchanged your, “I love you”’s with each other. 

Roadhog

  • He’s got a picture of you that he takes everywhere he goes. When he finds himself feeling lost or down, he takes it out and can only smile.
  • One of the favourite parts of his day, any day, is waking up with you next to him. He’s relieved when you’re there, after waking up on a few occasions from a nightmare where you’re gone.
  • It doesn’t matter how much you weigh, he loves naps where you’re actually resting right on top of him. That belly ain’t just for show, y’know! You put it to good use and it is very, very comfy.
  • Secretly enjoys it when you kiss him, even when he’s wearing his mask. He appreciates that you respect his privacy and love him whether he’s wearing it or not.
  • A lot of long, quiet walks. You appreciate nature together and don’t have to speak to know you like eachother’s company. There’s no awkwardness in your silence, the two of you just sort of…get eachother. An activity he likes to do is go to a park with a pond or lake, and feed the ducks, geese, swans etc. Seeing the babies following right behind the mother makes him think about what having a family with you would be like, and if you’d even want to have children with him. Just the thought makes his heart weightless.
  • It’s odd, but he finds a lot of comfort when you read to him. Can be any type of book, anything you pick out! So long as you allow him to rest his head on your lap and he gets to hear your voice, he’ll be content. 
  • He doesn’t like the thought of getting you freshly cut flowers - what’s the point? They die shortly after, and that’s not the impression he likes to give you, that your love is fleeting and short-lived. Instead, he’ll get you various packets of seeds. He likes to see how much the plants have grown each time he goes to visit.
  • Just as he’s accustomed to following Junkrat around with his silly antics, Roadhog will probably go with you anywhere and you can have a great time. Yes, he would LOVE to go to that concert with you. You walk out with lots of band merch.
  • MATCHING T SHIRTS. He thinks they’re funny. You’ve got the, “If lost, return to Roadhog,” he’s wearing, “I’m Roadhog,” and Junkrat has, “WHERE THE FUCK IS ROADHOG?!” But when it’s just the two of you, you will have the most adorable matching tees. Usually, it’s your idea, but Mako doesn’t object. He’ll wear that terribly-designed graphic tee with pride, goddamnit!
  • Likes watching you bake or cook, and especially likes learning from you. He doesn’t catch on the quickest, but he’ll attempt to cook a nice meal for you, someday. 

The Queen

  • Only into PDA when she’s got to let someone know that you are sorely spoken for.
  • Is rough and dominant with you at all times, but it’s more prevalent in public. Isn’t afraid to pull you into an intense kiss in front of a crowd. In private, she’s more gentle. 
  • Caressing your skin, lifting your chin, pinching your cheeks…well, touching your face in general. She’s rather tall and pretty imposing, so you usually fluster at her touch.
  • So many pet names. At first, you think she’s mocking you, but they’re just her own funny terms of endearment. 
  • If she’s on her throne, you’re on her lap, and she’s got one arm draped around your waist to boot.
  • The Queen could get into an argument with a cockroach. It’d be a miracle if you two didn’t argue every now and then (it’s no excuse, but she’s got a lot of stress on her shoulders given her status. Sometimes she snaps; fights are usually started by her, but finished by you.) But after every argument, if you’ve given her the cold shoulder for a bit, she’ll come grumbling back to you, saying, “Babe, I just got a lot on my plate,” though her pride prevents her from actually saying “I’m sorry.”

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Missouri, May 28, 1908

Wikipedia says that:

The zoo initially held 51 deer and antelope, 11 buffaloes, a sacred cow, a sandhill crane, 20 prairie dogs, a dromedary camel, eagles, ducks, elk, foxes, geese, swans, rabbits, a raccoon, a China sheep, opossums, a buzzard, owls, peafowl, among other animals.

By 1921 they had begun to build bear pits, a reptile house and a primate house. Big Cat Country was added in 1976.

Today the St Louis Zoo does have lions, tigers and hippos! The park commissioner would be proud.

This animation is so gorgeous, you don’t even have to speak Russian to understand it.

“Swan Geese”

Almost impossible to see them all, but geese, a swan, daisies, and a black and white cat by a misty pond that the sun just reached.

anonymous asked:

Hate to break it to you but both geese and swans are omnivores. They eat fish,frogs and insects natural diet (which is why their flesh and eggs tastes fishy). In captivity they'll eat pretty much any meat you offer them as well.

Hello :) Thanks for the info and no worries, I am aware that they are omnivores, as well as pigs.

There are definitely more going on behind the revolt, the war and the throne they currently occupy. The omnivore detail will definitely be addressed in future chapters❤

On Jedi and Daemons (HDM chat)
  • silvergryphon: that coydog does need to be someone's daemon tho
  • themikeymonster: I was thinking Obi tbh, because I've been trying to shove a Coyote on him for a while
  • but she is so gorgeous and intelligent tho???
  • you would not be surprised if she started speaking
  • silvergryphon: Coyote for ObiWan, huh? That's an interesting idea. I agree she'd be gorgeous and clever and probably just as given to snide commentary as her person
  • silvergryphon: Anakin's is something loyal and devoted and extremely territorial.
  • silvergryphon: NGL my brain jumped first to 'swan'
  • themikeymonster: Yeah!!! Coyotes tend to be communal animals, and they're VERY clever and VERY fearless (even moreso when you get Coydogs, just as with Wolfdogs). She wouldn't be very fearsome at first until the feral side showed :>
  • themikeymonster: OMG
  • SWANS ARE AWEFUL
  • Can't swans break bones with their wings? or is that geese
  • I think it's swans
  • also they mate for life, right?
  • Amazing
  • silvergryphon: Swans will mess your shit up if you come near their babies, they can break human arms with their wings, and I believe they mate for life
  • silvergryphon: Also, some are gay
  • just gonna leave that out there
  • themikeymonster: excellent
  • silvergryphon: gay swan pairs will sometimes make a temporary threesome with a female to make eggs, then chase the female off
  • themikeymonster: OMFG
  • That's the most scandelous thing i've ever heard
  • im cackling
  • silvergryphon: I know right
  • specifically that's black swans
  • silvergryphon: ANAKIN'S DAEMON IS 100% a BLACK SWAN NOW
  • themikeymonster: yeah im affraid so
  • im laughing so hard rn
  • themikeymonster: Also I was having hilarious thoughts about before Ani settled, that Obi's Coy(whatever) would end up plucking Ani's daemon off the ground and carrying her off. That Ani's daemon might actually shift to something small to be carried.
  • themikeymonster: you know, when the kid is being unruly
  • silvergryphon: YES I LOVE IT

I once had a staring contest with a goose while my sister was screaming at me to get away. It was kinda terrifying but i won in the end so tAKE THAT YOU LITTLE FLYING FUCKER. My sister still says i only won bc i'm an idiot with no sense of self-preservation and ngl i have to agree with her... (To be fair tho geese have nothing on swans, those assholes are the True Spawn Of Satan™ lmao)

Um the only difference between the two is that swans are bigger and more powerful so in my opinion they are equals in the contest of assholery
