he was very sick

Prompt: 31 days of fanfic challenge - Day 18 - Involve your pet

My kitty Vincent with my partner @thebenblr - this is the very first day we got him. He was really skinny and very sick and had burns and stuff.  You should see him now - over 5 years later! 
This story is similar, but not the same, to how we adopted Vincent (we didn’t meet at the adoption clinic, for example.)  But he definitely chose us - he won Ben over in seconds, but he sat staring up at me for ages while I talked to the volunteer worker.  He still uses that tactic on me now.  And he always gets his way.

underrated Keith moment

so s1 e4 Lance drinks some nunvil and this is his reaction

and soon in the background we see this

Lance is unresponsive so Keith decides to poke him

and Lance falls over

and then we see Keith and Hunk looking mildly concerned at their friend who has just passed out and is lying unconscious on the ground

to summarize: Lance just drank something that made him so sick that he passed out.

so what’s the very next thing Keith decides to do?

in conclusion, I love my stupid impulsive son and he would probably chug an entire bottle of hot sauce if someone dared him to.

I love their friendship so much and I’m disappointed in myself for not drawing something for them yet.

Lance is down with the flu and feeling extremely homesick; Hunk is the World’s Best  Friend and does his best to take care of him :’)

Long version under the cut:

anonymous asked:

*Gasps* what if some of the reasons that Lance was not good to help/hunt dragons, was bc he can easily be sick and have a very weak immune system??? So he had and still has to stay inside the house????

as a kid he probably did get sick often!he wasnt used to the cold the poor kid :(

keith and hunk are there for him tho 

The Crows Against the Common Cold

I have a cold so I’m inspired.

Matthias: sleeps it right off. Takes him max two days to get rid of it. Coughs maybe once. This pisses Nina offffff. Rises and shines like the secret tulip he is. “Cold? What cold? I live in the ice.”

Nina: loathes being sick. Even just the sniffles. Doesn’t want to be seen except not really. Could she eliminate it with her heart rending? Probably. But she won’t because everyone lavishes attention on her and she LOVES IT. Mattias babies her and so does Inej. Milks it as long as she can #DramaQueen

Jesper: Also #DramaQueen. But actually grumpier than Nina can be because he has to rest to get better and what is rest??? Loves Wylan taking care of him though. Very verbal about being cut down in the prime of life by the cold while wylan just shakes his head and spoon feeds him soup.

Wylan: (brought to you by my friend betterthanwaffles). Tries to hide being sick. Doesn’t want people to know because Jan Van DICK would get mad at him and call him weak. Not sure how Jesper found out, but suddenly Wy’s tucked in bed with blankets and tissues up to the gills. *cough cough Kaz told Jesper*

Kuwei: wants Jesper’s attention but he’s getting over it. Knows chemistry so well he can usually shake the cold quickly with different concoctions. Very quiet while sick. Sucks on cough drops obsessively.

Inej: tries to go about her business. Doesn’t exactly hide it, but doesn’t want a fuss. Nina wants to fuss so bad, so Inej avoids her as much as she can. Then Kaz hears her cough while trying to sneak in his office and he sends her straight to bed and sics Nina on her. Says it’s because he can’t afford a Wraith who gives herself away sneezing everywhere. Actually he is in love and brings her medicines and tissues on the sly. She knows.

Kaz: immune. The germs just burst into microscopic flame.

(3/3) “The night I deserted was the most frightening moment of my life. The guerrillas would have killed me if I’d been discovered. I ran away in the middle of the night. I found a road and hitched a ride with an oil truck from Ecuador. I tried to cross the border but the army arrested me. I thought for sure I would be executed. But they gave me the chance to demobilize. The first thing I wanted to do was see my family. It was too dangerous to return home so I sent for them. I thought my father would push me away, but he was very happy to see me. My sisters told me that my disappearance had been very hard on him. He had gotten very sick. I’ll always live with that regret, but we were able to spend four years together before he passed away. I’ve rebuilt my life from scratch. Leaving the guerrillas was like being born again. I had no skills. There was a lot of prejudice against me. I had to work as a waitress and go to school at night. But I’m almost finished with law school now. And even though it took a lot of suffering to get here, I finally have the life that I imagined as a young girl.”

(Bogotá, Colombia)

I wish I could put into words how much I adore joji and how proud I am of him for bein out here and makin an even bigger name for himself and creating such dope content and music while still being a genuinely lovely person but I don’t kno how to properly convey any emotion ever so i’ll just lay here and listen to the entirety of pink season for the millionth time while staring at my ceiling in awe

“Mr. Dahmer did not feel as though these people were dead because he was still relating to them.  He would talk to them, he would cuddle them, he would hold them, he would think about them.  He took the skull of somebody he’d killed and kept it in a locker so he could be close and have companionship with it.  Now, that’s very, very sick, but to him it felt as though there was something warm and comforting happening, not that he was doing something terrible and awful.”

- Dr. Fred Berlin, a psychiatrist for the defense

we always talk about how Dan is always a very enthused music person, but phil is always making references to songs if you pay very close attention and he has a sick ass playlist called “ian” on spotify.I think about around christmas he blasts all I want for Christmas is you and he can’t listen to words with lyrics when he’s working so he likes soft music :((and the mark of oxin soundtrack was so great. that little creative fucker used to take violin lessons what happen to that??

“Sangwoo, can you come here for a second?” The boy looked up from where he was drawing in the back of the class and locked eyes with you. He was sat alone in the corner, away from the other kids and it broke your heart to see him like this. Sangwoo was usually active with the other kids and used to always participate in class, but lately he had been pulling away from everyone.

The boy cleaned up the items he had been using and he slowly got up from where he was sitting. The sluggish movements of the six year old worried you and a frown came across you face. His eyes seemed to be locked on the ground as he walked towards you, not wanting to make eye contact. The action seemed to be his way of hiding from you and you sighed, slowly crouching down to his height.

“Sangwoo, do you have something you want to tell teacher about?” You asked. You hoped the words would be enough encouragement for the boy to speak but the words he said weren’t the ones you had been looking for. You became even more worried as you heard the words that left his mouth and you wondered if something was going on at home.

“I’m not in trouble, am I?” Sangwoo questioned. His tone made your heart clench and you quickly shook your head, cancelling all fears of his. He seemed to calm down a little bit at the fact that he wasn’t in trouble.

I *May* Have Been “That Person” and Fell in Love with a Sick Betta

First thing is that normally I do not reccommend buying a sick betta from a store. It’s just setting up for heartbreak. Especially if you’re not equipped to handle the care of a very sick betta and if you’re not prepared to deal with possibly losing a sick betta. I always try to pick out relatively healthy bettas. I have bought some with fin rot before but never anything seriously wrong. Until Monday that is…

So I went to Petco because my shitty tetra airpump finally gave up on me after having taken apart and tinkering with it more times than I care to admit. I had heard good things about petco brand airpumps so went with that. While I was there I stopped by and checked out the bettas. I was just admiring the colors and feeling sorry for some of them when I noticed a very sick veiltail. He was so skinny and weak all he could do was rest at the bottom of his cup breathing heavily through his gills. He was completely clamped up and looked more like a matchstick than a fish. I told myself to leave him, I didn’t need another betta. I wandered around the store arguing with my brain telling me about the empty emergency 2.5, extra heaters, and meds. Kept telling my brain to shut up. Then I realized I had spent well over 30 minutes wandering around thinking about the same fish…I was doomed. Let’s face it I never had a chance.

I want to clarify that I did NOT rescue him. I meekly and quietly took him to the counter and paid for him(lol at me and being a coward.) To rescue a betta means you talked to the manager about why this is completely inappropriate, I did not do that. This betta was really freaking weak. He could hardly swim and even a half filled 2.5 was too much for him. So he went into a breeders box floating in said 2.5

I wasn’t holding onto much hope but thought I’d at least try. I began doing 1 hour paraguard baths in a .5 gallon betta cube every day. His half filled 2.5 was dosed with stresscoat and paraguard as well as some aq salt to aid gill function. I couldn’t get him to eat and as he was already thin I just wasn’t expecting the best…the on the third day during his bath he ate some bloodworms! After that he continued to get better!

He is now on Day 5 and today was his last hour long bath. His 2.5 still isn’t completely filled but is more than halfway. He is still very skinny but eats 3x’s a day. He is getting better at swimming but still needs to occasionally rest and catch his breath. I love this little guy so much. @oliviner decided on the perfect name for him. Not only am I a huge D.C. nerd but it’s also very fitting given his situation. Everyone meet Mister Miracle!

His tank is pretty freaking bare right now, but once he’s strong enough I’m going to make it a Halloween Themed tank.

Again, I did not rescue MM I bought him. I happened to have most of his necessities(ignore the hidious DIY filter shhh it’s invisible you can’t see it) and I happened to have necessary meds already stocked. However 9/10 times I do NOT reccommend taking a sick betta home. It’s a lot of stress that can easily lead to heartbreak. I don’t know how to explain it, but I could not leave him I was drawn to him. I know it doesn’t make sense but anyway I love Mister Miracle and I hope he’s around for a long time. We’re still fighting.

I would like to thank @oliviner for being such a huge help and listening to my questions and concerns. For supporting us and not giving up and just for being so kind and warm. I would also like to thank @toothless-the-betta-fish @bettabbys @finsandattitude @hella-free-space @inkyozzy and @iantojonesthebetta for their support and help as well! 

Humans are space Orcs

So I’m going to toss in one of these cus why not.
What if all aliens just don’t get the concept of “Pets”

Year of the Gu'meks: 34458, 45, 3
Human year: 2254, 11, 15
Today I was assigned as the new ambassador to Earth. I have gone through most of the lessons of human quirks, but I still have to go through “Pets”, and “The will to survive” I have no idea what pets are, but I have a good idea what “the will to survive” is.

Year of the Gu'meks: 34458, 45, 4
Human year: 2254, 11, 15
I have borded the Human vessel “Edmonton” in order to be transported to Earth. I have met the Human ambassador on bord, and she is in charge of teaching me the concept of “pets” Her name is Alexadra. She is very kind, but the fact that femal humans always have their teets, even when not nursing child, confuses me. If evolution was slightly different on Gu'mek, perhaps we would to.
It also baffles me that Humans are the only spiecis that the name of the spiecis is not realed to their planet.

Suplement
Almost as soon as I was done writing my log, Alexandra came to me and said she wanted me to meet someone named “Doug”
It turns out Doug is on of these “pets”. He is a domesticated Earth canine. Alexandra explained that humans keep domesticated animals as companions. I guess being the “Apex preditor” of your planet has its advantages. She also explained that hundreds of human years ago they used these animals to help hunt, and still do.
I do not understand why humans still hunt, now that they have had farms on their planet for hundreds of years, and access to food replcation technology for about 96 years.

Year of Gu'mek 34..why am I doing this, no one is going to find us.
We crashed of Tummaah 4, and everybody exept Alex and her dog, and obviously me, has died. Alex has told me that now I shall see this “will to survive” humans are so famous for.

It has been 20 days scince the crash, and I have given up on rescue. When I brought this up with Alex, she simlpy stated “then we will make this hellhole our home”

Day 50.
We have built a crude house out of the wreckage of the ship. Alex is sad about the loss of the ship. She said it was named after her home city.

Day 61
DISASTER. A brutal storm struck and completely destroyed the house we resided in. A peice of debrie landed on Alex and Doug, wounding them both. Alex completely disregarded her own injuries to treat Doug. Her injuries I may add, were quite extensive(broken leg, cracked rips, and a piece of debrie sticking out OF HER STOMACH.) This. This is the human will to survive. Alex, after making sure Doug was comfortable, finaly started treating herself.
I would try to help, but I know little about human physiology.

Day 70.
We have re-built the shelter, and even after all of her injuries, she insisted on hunting for food, despite the fact I offered to do it. She told me “I can still go out and hunt. Yes it will be painful, yes it will be harder than normal without Doug by my side, but I can do it. You on the other hand…well the Gu'mek are not that stealthy. You evolved to blend in with rocks and such, Humanity evolved to hunt. Now stay here and make sure Doug gets enough water, he is very sick, and I don’t want to lead anyone else.”

Day 100.
A ship has found us!! Its landing..ITS THE QUA'TALL

We have been on the run for 5 days. Alex came up with a crazy plan. Take the Qua'tall ship. Its a ship of 50. We are 2. 3 if you include the dog. Alex told me that if she can get one of their guns, she can do it by herself.

We did it. We have a gun. Doug and I are to stay here while Alex goes out. If she dies, I am to care for Doug as long as I can. He is aparently 12 years old, and dogs live for about 14.

IT WAS AMAZING. Alex has killed all of them. That was the human will to survive. It was amazing, she was hit multiple times. She just got up and kept going. We are now on the ship, and heading for Allied space.


Ok so this turned into something completely different and long.
But hey thats my addition to this tag.

My brain suggested we do something usefull today, but then i remembered that i have no brains so i did this
these two are my @thebbros  Oc’s, bakers Vinny the mouse and Poud the goat who work at V and P’s Bakery
they are both orphans, and they’ve been best friends since childhood, when they grew up they started to work the bakery since they both love baking

  • Vinny is 22 but he is very imature and irresponsible. He has the ink illness. He loves to goof around and can make a joke out of literly anything. He likes sweets but some times he doesn’t know when to stop and that gives him lots of sugar rush. He is very optimistic, likes to cheer other people up and personaly most of the times doesn’t get worked up about anything, even when he got sick he still didn’t change his attitude.
  • Poud is 27, and he is almost complete opposite of Vinnny. He takes his job very serious and responsible, but some times he worres a bit too much. He is pretty stressed most of times, but he tries to act nice to everyone. He can be patient but sometimes he can’t help it and losses his temper. He is also very eloquent which makes many girls like him.  And he loves flowers.  

Ever since Vinny got sick Poud was very stressed and scared because he loves his friend more than anything and he doesn’t wants to lose him, but Vinny believes that he might have a chance to survive and always tells Poud not to worry, but at the same time he is actually ready for his death, he just doesn’t care
