growing an inch

ok so what did we learn?
  • Rhett cut his hair already*
  • Link still has the ‘stache (ugh)
  • BS2 will be half-hour eps
  • GMM will be longer starting in the fall (”more of what you love and more of it each day”)

Was that it?

*hair only grows like half an inch per month, just enough to slick it back and put extensions in it

His arms and legs contain sharp spines that can grow to at least 8 inches in length and are coated with an irritant, the spines however can be delicate if they are broken take time to regrow and harden again. The opposite side of his arms contain pheromone sacks, which release an appealing scent when he’s in a good mood or near someone he is attracted too.

Hi there. How long do you think Jane has been gone? Let's theorize a little bit based on hair... :) Her hair is I'd say 4-6 inches (10-15 cm) longer than they were at the end of s2 (watch the video of Jane and Weller talking to each other in Piazza San Marco. It's really long, closer to 6 inches, maybe more?). Hair grow about half an inch (maybe less) a month. So, unless, she had started growing her hair before she left (which I would say it's not Jane's style based on what we've seen so far -

- please, don’t tell me Jane has been growing her hair for the wedding, it seems so out of character, it’s funny), she’s gone for 10-12 months. They also used the hair to show she’s been gone for 3 months last season. They were married after a year together? Less? So can we assume she’s been gone for 10-12 months and left almost immediately after the wedding? I know this is very ridiculous, but life is too hard so we should have some fun, no? ;) Bye!

I would legitimately say we don’t really know what Jane’s style is because she’s never been allowed to really explore it? Does she like the clothes she wears or is it just because that style is what she was given when she came out of that bag naked? Does she like her hair short? She had it super long when she was still Remi, and she lopped it off in season 2 as an act of defiance and being able to control one single aspect of her life. So in that regard, as far as it’s not Jane’s style, I’d say we don’t know much about that anyway.

As far as how fast hair grows, everyone’s hair is different. I chopped off all my hair once and it was down to just below my ear length again within a year. 

The show could go ‘super drama’ route and have her disappear right after the wedding, and I could legit see them doing that. My guess is that she’s been gone minimum 8 months, maximum a year, but no more than that. I mean, even if her hair got to shoulder length after a year, that’s still a whole other year she was gone. Her hair didn’t only start growing the day she left for the mountain or whatever lmao. Depending on how quickly they got married, they could have had a good year and some months together before she disappeared. I guess we’ll find out in four months!

Actually you know what. Just don’t mow. Get rid of your lawnmower. Turn your whole yard into a wildflower field or an edible garden. Lawns are the invention of the upper class to show wealth through wasted plots of grass that is meticulously tended for no reason other than to be grass. It’s literally an empty plot of land they kept because they had so much money they didn’t need it to grow food. Not using a yard as just a yard is an act of rebellion.

One of the main industries still supporting lawns is chemical pest control companies, and they’re also responsible for the insecticides that crashed the bird populations in the 40s and 50s as well as a lot of what’s killing bees and butterflies now. The herbicides they produce specifically targets “bad” plants like dandelions, buttercups, and clovers, which are plants bees rely on for early spring feeding. Grass is just grass; it would be great for feeding small mammals if people would let it grow more than three inches, but they won’t.

So, yeah. Kill lawnmower culture. Plant some native flowers. Grow some vegetables and fruit trees. Put out bird feeders and bee sugar spots and homes for both. Be kind to bugs and birds and rabbits and opossums and whoever else might wander by. Make your neighborhood a lot more beautiful.

 🌿English Ivy

 🌿Chinese Evergreen


 🌿Dragon Tree

AU where Dumbledore’s Army uses the Chamber of Secrets instead of the Room of Requirement
  • Ultimate security as Harry is the only one capable of opening it. 
  • Myrtle proudly spending her time acting as a guard/lookout. 

  • Later, Harry diligently teaching Ron, Hermione, and a few choice others, like Neville, how to mimic parseltongue so that they can open it too. 

  • Muggleborns experiencing vicious satisfaction that they’re using this chamber as a place of education and defense, reclaiming the very space Slytherin built to rid the school of their presence. 

  • Hermione methodically dismantling the basilisk’s corpse, covertly selling the priceless ingredients to potion masters, using the funds to continue their work - buying books and battle robes and new wands for those who can’t afford it. 

  • (Hermione saving a portion of those ingredients for her own research, straightening in triumph when she learns what basilisk venom does to horcruxes, knowing she has vials of it hidden up in her room). 

  • Harry reverently adding the Chamber of Secrets to the Marauder’s Map, proudly continuing his family’s work and reveling in the difference they’re making. 

  • These students - these kids - choosing to train in a dark, horrifying place that was never meant for them. Learning spells amongst shadows, growing stronger in inches of murky water, the smell of a decomposing corpse in their noses, memories of all that had happened here haunting them. They know this is what war is really like and it helps to push them forward.  

*swamped with homework and feelings and managed to shell this out a month late…I’m a mess™*

You were immersed in a deep sleep, tired from working on a large project that was worth half your grade. In you attempt to disconnect from the world around and sleep peacefully, you blocked out the sounds and all touch with reality. The sudden dip in your bed didn’t bother you, the presence of another body and an arm haphazardly wrapping around you, these were things you were blocking out. Until you felt a finger on your cheek.

“Hey, roomie.”

“I hate you.”

“You know you love me.”

“Kiss my ass, Jimin.” You used to think you were lucky to be paired up with your best friend in the dorms of your university. Until you realized he was a clingy, sassy and messy guy that never failed to annoy you. His leisure attitude towards school was opposite to your dedication to reading every word of your textbook. He was a jock, baseball being the reason he was here in your room and cheekily smiling at you.  

“I wouldn’t mind doing that.” You whacked him in the face with your pillow, wanting him to leave your room but he instead pulled you closer against his chest.

“Let go of me, you pervert.”

“You told me to kiss your ass, now…”

“I swear to god, Jimin, I’ll suffocate you in your sleep.”

“Kinky. I always wanted to test out breath play.”

The most upsetting thing I learned today is that in my town, if you let your lawn grow to over eight inches tall the city will give you three days to cut it, then send a contractor over to cut it and send you the bill.

The bees are dying??? And maybe I would like to grow my grass so flowers can bloom and create a little haven for them and all the other creatures??  A tiny field of wildflowers and bees in the middle of suburbia, which is infinity more beautiful than a bare, unadorned green slab? 

Besides, I never go outside, so why should I spend so much time and energy making sure my square of grass is useless to wildlife?

Solangelo au where nico is really hot but also really oblivious?

dont you mean canon

lets pretend that nico decided not to stick around camp immediately after the war and instead felt like he needed to take some time to himself and basically doesn’t come back for another year - a year spent growing like 6 inches taller, developing some real muscle (dont get me wrong hes still incredibly skinny but boy’s got some nice arms and legs ok) and getting a haircut

  • remember that nicos like a war hero so literally everyone knows who he is but when he comes back after that year??? practically unrecognizable 
    • also remember that like, 3 people total know that nico’s gay?? so like jason, piper, probably annabeth are the only ones (ofc will has his suspicions)
  • so nico’s just trying to live as normal a life as he can right? he just wants to teach a sword fighting class, eat some decent meals, maybe join in on a game of capture the flag every so often.
    • he’s super close to getting that wish too except that sword fighting class?? it’s supposed to be like beginner’s level, like 10 year olds, but a bunch of girls his age are always there??? and he’ll try to be nice and offer to teach them too but they always say they’re just there to watch??? 
    • and people keep arguing over which team nico should be on in capture the flag??? like he knows he’s a pretty good fighter but shadow traveling was deemed against the rules, so why would they want him on their team so bad???
    • even when he’s eating he always feels like people are watching him and talking behind his back and like, that’s one of the reasons he didn’t want to stay at camp in the first place but he can’t just run away again
  • after a while people stop with the talking behind his back and instead just kind of start directly bothering him, like, he’s trying to teach a class here! stop asking him stupid, personal questions! and it’s stupid things like that that get him injured and normally he’d suck it up but then a couple of the girls that won’t leave him alone insist that they walk him to the infirmary
  • will notices, pretty much immediately, that nico’s uncomfortable and tells the girls that they have to leave before he sits nico down on one of the beds to clean his injury and get him fixed up
    • nico starts complaining to will about all of this stuff that keeps happening, like the fact that people won’t leave him alone and it seems like him being there is causing more conflict among campers than anything
  • eventually will just starts laughing and nico gets all offended but then will’s like “they’re just trying to get to know you because they think you’re cute” and nico’s just like ????? will’s like “what, all this attention from a bunch of girls and you don’t want it?” and nico goes “not really bc i dont like girls”
    • and u know one thing leads to another and all those girls are waiting outside the infirmary for nico but him and will leave together to go to the campfire for a date and nico likes his attention a whole lot more

this is like super long i hope you like it!!

drop an au in my ask and get a list of headcanons!

So Does Anyone Want Some Fucking Tansy

Because I planted some a couple years back and it’s doing well.

Really well.

Really really well.

Like “Hey this spot is swell let’s seed ourselves all over the yard and conquer it, a'la Genghis Khan” well.

I have tansy that’s coming up in my flower beds. In my driveway cracks. In my lawn. In the vegetable garden, which, I want it noted, is on the other side of the damn house.

I blame my bees. They like the flowers, and pollinate the hell out of them. The seeds apparently have a 200% germination rate and can walk through walls.

So I have tansy plants out the ass. I’ve been pulling it like a weed. On the plus side, it does repel pests and ants. I haven’t seen a single ant in my yard this year. I think the tansy ate them.

So if anyone wants some organically raised tansy to take over their property grow in their herb or flower patch, hit me up. Lovely yellow flowers, very cold hardy, smells nice, repels ants and pests. Flowers dry well for wreaths or winter arrangements and retain their nice smell. Doesn’t mind drought. Doesn’t mind heat. Doesn’t mind growing in a microscopic crack in the pavement. Probably wouldn’t mind a direct nuclear strike.

Tansy looks like this, BTW.

An witch, annoyed with the townspeople who come to her for every little problem, turns herself into a doe and spends her time in the forest alone. She’s very happy. She’s not very happy when she’s accidentally hunted, and curses those who pursue her. 

1. The food you hunt turns into your most hated meat, and smells gross. its fine to eat.

2. If you look a deer in the eye, little velvet nubs on your head grow. every time you look one in the eye again, they grow an inch.

3. You see a lot more game than usual. ¾ of them are illusions.
