giant friends

Review for Creature Cauldron

@creature-cauldron is a lovely spirit companion shop on here and I am so glad that I stumbled across them! I’m also incredibly glad that Jett is part of my family now!

My companion who I recently got in just a few days ago, is an absolute joy and I am having an incredible time with him! I was so excited when I was chosen from his applications, that I was full of energy and excitement for days!!! I couldn’t believe that Jett had picked me and I was ecstatic to know that the calling I felt for him was mutual!  Both Ana and Cali are amazing and were incredibly sweet during the process!

I loved getting to introduce Jett to one of my all time favorite movies, Anastasia, and it was so much fun feeling his reactions to it and hearing his commentary during it. I also love knowing that I have a cuddle buddy at night, who complains when I scroll through tumblr on my phone too fast and who just genuinely brings me nothing but joy when I talk to him and spend time with him. He’s so very amazing and I can’t wait to continue to get to know him better and work with him and go on adventures with him both in the astral and here. I’ve also found that he seems to like my sweet tea which is adorable.

I am so very grateful to Ana and Cali for bringing us together and for their shop, because now I don’t feel alone and its a lot harder to be sad now with this giant ray of sunshine hanging out with me. The companions they list are amazing and they work so hard on everything to do with the shop! The payment process was super easy and they were very accommodating with discreet packaging, which I needed due to being in the broom closet with my family. Their vessels are fantastic as well and from what I feel personally, all of their lovely companions go to the perfect homes just for them! I cannot say enough good things about this shop or the lovely women that run it!! I also cannot express enough gratitude for having Jett here with me and for Cali and Ana being the ones that not only got him here but put us together as well.

All in all, this is a fantastic spirit companion shop and while some people may be upset that its not free, you get all of your money’s worth out of any of the spirits that chose you from their applications! You won’t regret going to their shop and applying for one of their companions! I absolute love you guys and again thank you so much!!!!

How do you manage to do so much experimental baking/cooking and eat it all as a single person? I'm also currently baking for just me, and like a loaf of bread lasts forever. (Or I'm baking for a giant group of friends which requires all the food)

I freeze a lot :) And I generally tend to reduce the size of what I’m cooking – I often make half-recipes. You can kind of see it in my sam cooks tag, there’ll be a cooking day and then not much food posts for a week or two, then maybe another cooking day a month later. Also with the experimental cooking, I’m not afraid to throw it out if it’s gross, which it is about 50% of the time….

fuck, like, okay, I’m just gonna be real for a second, I’ve been thinking about cockles so much for the past day after so long going without really thinking about them, and I’ve been leaning heavily if not entirely on the idea of Jensen and Misha having mutual crushes but probably never having acted on it or if they have, having totally repressed it.

but then the clothes sharing comes and smacks me in the face again, and i don’t think I’ve ever looked at it from the perspective of their just being friends with giant crushes on each other, and i have no revelation or great insight here other than to point out how fuckin painful and beautiful and confusing that truly is. Jensen is pretty obviously in love with Misha. I’m headcanoning that he’s majorly repressed that to the point that he doesn’t worry about it anymore. But this boy is in love with Misha and what does he do, he gives Misha his shirt. Twice. I have so many questions about how and why this occurred, but mostly I’m just impressed that this softie had the wherewithal (or just the repression i guess) to witness someone he wants but can’t have in his shirt. I mean i guess if that’s all he can have, he’ll savor it, but it’s just heartbreaking to me.

And that’s not even looking at the Misha side of it, of his wearing Jensen’s shirt when he’s away from him. He has to know what something like that must mean to someone like jensen, but he wears that polo like it’s his favorite shirt.

And also just how and why. Like the circumstances for how Jensen would go about giving his shirt to his friend are eluding me completely if I’m honest, other than his just being a real soft boy.

knitting a blanket & suddenly not sure how big blankets are supposed to be. 12 feet across? 15??

y’know sometimes I really think about how Fallout New Vegas was an actual game that happened 

like, this was a game in a series that’s about a post-apocalyptic wasteland with a 50′s esque setting. The main character is usually from a vault or has a connection to a vault and has some goal that mostly involved saving someone, you tend to run around a shithole filled with mutated abominations and bloodthirsty raiders

and then you get this game that just 

like Fallout New Vegas was a game that included: 

  • mass murdering roman legionary cosplayers 
  • post apocalyptic cowboys and cowboy robots 
  • a dominatrix zombie 
  • a sexbot called ‘Fisto’ that you can test-fuck 
  • an entire clan of Elvis impersonators 
  • Chandler from Friends 
  • fucking giant killer wasps twice the size of a person
  • a bunch of Genghis Khan cosplayers 
  • old ladies that try to mug you with rolling pins
  • a casino that’s secretly a bunch of cannibals 

And the main character, well

Fallout 1: Your from a Vault and you have to find a water chip to save your vault.
Fallout 2: you’re from a tribe descended from a vault and you have to find a GECK to save you village.
Fallout 3: your from a vault and you have to find your dad and save the wasteland. 

Fallout New Vegas: You’re a fucking mailman from christ knows where and you have to find the asshole who shot you and then fuck up the mojave two ways from sunday. 

I dunno I just think this game was a wondrous masterpiece 

Imagine one day during lunch tsukishima bursts into hinata’s classroom–where yamaguchi, hinata, yachi, and kageyama were studying–and screams “YAMAGUCHI I SWEAR TO GOD IF U DON’T STOP SENDING ME PICTURES OF THAT FUCKING FROG ON ITS FUCKING FROG UNICYCLE I’LL END YOUR LIFE. WHAT IS SO IMPORTANT THAT YOU NEEDED TO SEND ME 40 OF THESE TO GET ME HERE?” Yamaguchi looks up all wide eyed and innocent and goes “we didn’t know the answer to number 5.” When tsukishima turns to leave yamaguchi takes a pic of his back and sends it to him along with the caption “there go dat boi”. When tsukishima turns to throw his phone at them yamaguchi dodges easily, smiles, and in the fakest stage whisper ever goes “oh shit waddup”. And that is how karasuno discovers yamaguchi is a) a meme lord and b) literally willing to risk his life in order to meme

Joan Beauchamp Procter: her best friend was a Komodo dragon and if that doesn’t entice you to read this, I don’t know what will

Joan Beauchamp Procter is a scientist every reptile enthusiast should admire.

Joan was an incredibly intelligent young woman who was chronically ill (and as a result of her chronic illness, physically disabled by her early thirties). Her health issues kept her from going to college, but that did not stop her from studying and keeping reptiles. She presented her first paper to the Zoological Society of London at the tender age of nineteen, and the society was so impressed that they hired her to help design their aquarium. In 1923, despite having no formal secondary education and despite being only 26 years old, she was hired as the London Zoo’s curator of reptiles. Now, that in and of itself is an awesome accomplishment, but Joan was absolutely not content to maintain the status quo. Nosiree, by the age of 26 Joan had already kept many exotic pets (including a crocodile!) and knew a thing or two about what needed to be done to improve their lives in captivity. So Joan got together with an architect, Edward Guy Dawber, and designed the world’s first building designed solely for the keeping of reptiles. She had some really, really great ideas. Her first big idea was to make the building differentially heated- different areas and enclosures would have different heat zones, instead of having the whole building heated to one warm temperature. She also set up aquarium lighting- the gallery itself was dark, with dim lights on individual enclosures to make things less stressful for the inhabitants. She also insisted on the use of special glass that didn’t filter out UVB. This meant that reptiles could synthesize vitamin D and prevented cases of MBD in her charges. 

But advances in enclosure design weren’t Joan’s only contribution to reptile keeping. She was also one of the first herpetologists to study albinism in snakes- she was the first to publish an identification how albinism manifests in reptile eyes differently than in mammal eyes, and stressed the importance of making accurate color plates of reptiles during life because study specimens often lose pigmentation. She also was really hands-on with many species, including crocodiles, large constrictors, and monitor lizards. Joan had this idea that if you socialize an animal and get it used to handling, then when you need to give it a vet checkup, things tend to go a lot better. This really hadn’t been done with reptiles before. She was able to identify many unstudied diseases, thanks to her patient handling of live specimens, and by being patient and going slow, she managed to get a lot of very large, dangerous creatures to trust her. One of them (that we know of) even came to like her- a Komodo dragon named Sumbawa. 

In 1928, two of the first Komodo dragons to be imported to Europe arrived at the London Zoo. One of them, named Sumbawa, came in with a nasty mouth infection. His first several months at the zoo were a steady stream of antibiotics and gentle care, and by the time he’d recovered enough for display, he had come to be tolerant of handling and human interaction. In particular, he seemed to be genuinely fond of Joan. She was their primary caretaker and wrote many of the first popular accounts of Komodo dragon behavior in captivity. While recognizing their lethal capacity, she also wrote about how smart they are and how inquisitive they could be. In her account published in The Wonders of Animal Life, she said that "they could no doubt kill one if they wished, or give a terrible bite" but also that they were “as tame as dogs and even seem to show affection.” To demonstrate this, she would take Sumbawa around on a leash and let zoo visitors interact with him. She would also hand-feed Sumbawa- pigeons and chickens were noted to be favorite food, as were eggs. 

Joan died in 1931 at the age of 34. By that time she was Doctor Procter, as the University of Chicago had awarded her an honorary doctorate. Until her death, she still remained active with the Zoological Society of London- and she was still in charge of her beloved reptiles. Towards the end of her life, Joan needed a wheelchair. But that didn’t stop her from hanging out with her giant lizard friend. Sumbawa would walk out in front of the wheelchair or beside it, still on leash- she’d steer him by touching his tail. At her death, she was one of the best-known and respected herpetologists in the world, and her innovative techniques helped shape the future of reptile care. 

The seven as types of friends

Annabeth: The giant wreck friend. She’s constantly stressing about something.She’s working on four projects, none of which she’s finished. She’s set fire to at least two (2) notebooks and her diet mainly consists of bagels, coffee, and her own tears.

Percy: The protective friend. He’s a sarcastic shit and you can’t always tell if he’s being sincere, but you once saw him break a guy’s nose for insulting his brother and you know he’ll do the same for you. He has approximately twelve (12) bandaids on at all times and he’ll spot you money without ever asking for it back

Jason: The dad friend. He somehow always has water bottles for if you’re thirsty. He’s seen you cry over twenty times but he never brings it up because he’s just too good of a guy. His catchphrase is “I don’t know…” right before talking you out of doing something stupid

Leo: The dying friend. He mostly consists of jokes and witty comebacks. You’re 90% sure he’s dying inside and just uses acronyms and puns to hide it but you don’t say anything because you’re pretty sure he’d rather crawl into a hole than talk about it. He gives oddly good advice and he never fails to make you laugh.

Hazel: The you think she’s innocent friend. She’s somehow convinced everyone she’s naive and innocent when really she’s probably way more experienced in life than you are. She blushes like a maniac and uses “darn” in her everyday vocabulary. She’s an angel until you piss her off. 

Frank: The actually innocent friend. He never swears and instead uses bizarre substitutes that are sometimes worse than the actual swear word. He gives gentle high fives and he awkwardly pats your shoulder when you’re upset. He gives the best hugs.

Piper: The cool friend. You have no idea how you managed to get her as a friend. She messed up so much in her past that she’s now grown and learned beyond her years. She’s the epitome of doesn’t give a fuck. She wears leather jackets that intimidate you and she likes to flip people off. Everyone is secretly in love with her.
