Consider: Witch Riko who accidentally got a dog as a familiar, who is just the happiest, most supportive familiar ever. Anyway, long story short, the familiar turns into a human and it's Chika and Riko has The Gay Panic because "oh no, she's hot"

YES. She spends the first moments terrified for her goddamn life but guess what you summoned it so it’s stuck to you. It doesn’t matter where she goes the dog appears and after she spends the first three days locked in her own bathroom sobbing on the floor she decides maybe the dog isn’t so bad.

The digital booklet for @lanadelrey’s Lust For Life in high quality.

Buy or stream Lust For Life. It’s out now.

For Lana’s live stream update click here

can i just have a scene where Georgie refuses the boat from Pennywise and runs back home, and at night where everyone’s asleep Pennywise just stalks Georgie into his room and all of a sudden Georgie’s like,

“how do you eat in the sewers?” and it’s just a truckload of questions but Pennywise doesn’t care, and he tries to scare Georgie but he’s all “dude you must be so hungry”

So then begins the process where Georgie tries to teach Pennywise how to make a sandwich quietly at night in the kitchen and he’s so determined to demonstrate how to construct a sandwich but then… Pennywise is trying to eat Georgie or kill him and whatever but every time he does Georgie just lightly smacks him on the head with a frying pan and is like, “shhh pay attention I’m trying to teach you how to make a  s a n d w i c h”

this evening’s nonsense

Take a bucket and fill it with all of your worries.
All of them.
Every single one.
Then take that bucket, and empty it into the natural flow of the universe. Allow each worry to be washed away,
Disintegrate,
And vanish out of sight.
Allow for the natural way of things to act in its own timing. It will take away all of your worries. It knows the way, so surrender your torturous thoughts,
For everything will be alright.

The hugodamien secret ending extended cut

Let’s give Arkhamverse Riddler some love shall we? Something of a simple tribute to the games that made us collect trophies for days on end. Hope you guys like it. aha.

p.s Those question marks were a pain in the butt to animate, so pls forgive my lack of further detail work. Anyway, have a good day!

What do you think Nidoking and Nidoqueen are based of?

Their lines seem to be inspired by bits of all sorts of animals - we git some unmistakably mammalian influences, for example from rhinos, rodents/rabbits etc. but also something archaic and reptilian - hey don’t have cheeks for example. I think that they form a unique little clade within pokémon, a distinct body plan (that includes having also similar quadruped pre-evos) that allies them with the rhydon line. Indeed the Nido royalties, Rhydon, and Rhyperior all are known as The Drill Pokémon. Also, Khangaskan shares many features of this group too. 

The body plan of a large, eared, bipedal, tailed, spiny, reptiley-mammal has an unmistakably gen 1 feel about it, it is so recognisable, for example it stars as the iconic gym statues, and as one of the major roster sprites in gen1/2. Rhydon like mons everywhere man. 

Of course, rhydon was one of the first Pokémon designed, and you can see from this early concept art that the original rhydon was even more Nido like than now.  

Ok I don’t know where I’m going with this, but before I had a tendency to shoehorn pokémon into definitive groups based on real life counterparts, however this often runs into difficulties where you have pokémon based on more than one unrelated real life animal, or when a real life counterpart simply doesn’t exist. Plus we have lots of game mechanic bullshit that can be just plain biological sacrilege - eggs, B̑́ͧ͐rͨͩ̇ͣ̏ͧE̷͗E͑͟d͗͆iͤͦͫ͒n͟Ǧ̃̃̄̌, evolutionary stages (though I see pokémon evolution in this sense as a form of facultative metamorphosis) etc.  

I think now it’s better to assume that Pokémon is an incredibly different universe, but one that does share some fundamental biological and evolutionary laws and similarities. Thus for example instead of saying that Rattata is a rat definitively, it could be better to say that Rattata is an organism that shares many morphological and ecological characteristics with a rat, and thus, since we have very limited data to go upon (we can’t properly study it’s physiology, behaviour etc., sequence DNA etc., and like,the pokedex is written by a ten year old child lol), we can infer aspects of it’s biology from rats as well as it’s evolutionary relationships to other rodent like pokémon that share a similar suite of physiological and ecological characters, from what we know about such relationships in Rodentia, and from real world character evolution. 

So what can we say about the Nidos? They are part of a distinguishable group of pokémon that all possess a distinct set of ecological, behavioural, and morphological characters, which have analogies to a variety of real life mammalian and reptilian real life counterparts, such as rhinos, glires (rodents and lagomorphs (hares, pikas, and rabbits), and mammal like reptiles. The variation within this group of pokemon is less than the differences between members of this group and other pokémon, and this unites this group as a clade. It would be a lot of work to actually work out what pokémon the drill pokémon + khangaskan are most closely related to, i.e. make a phylogenetic tree, but here is just a rough within group tree with a possible scenario of major character evolutionary events (indicated by black rectangles). 

(also, the breeding rules between the Nidos, and whether the king and queen are different species or this is just sexual dimorphism is completely clouded by game mechanics of having gendered pokémon before established gender mechanics, so I’m not going to into that - however, I will say for a quick example, meerkats live in a matriarchal society and the alpha female usually has most of the breeding rights - however, because she has to defend the her position, as well as the group itself from danger, she often has very high testosterone levels which reduces her fertility - perhaps nidorina and nidoqueen are extreme examples of this, changing physically to take on a more protective role, letting nidoran sisters/aunts/mothers take on breeding roles)
