Name: Carina
Age: 16
Country: Germany

When I was 8 years old I met a girl on a playground. We had a lot of fun (apparently I had) so we exchanged a dresseses. I wrote her a letter, but she never replied. Guess she felt a bit pressured by me. Still I am a HUGE fan of snail mail, and I’m searching for a passionate snail mail friend who does reply regular! And likes me, of course. I’m having a “pen pal”, but since it’s a friend from school who does write letters like twice a year it doesn’t really count for me. I’m putting effort in my letters, and respond quick in general. Just in case you fear, I also never blaickmailed someone or came to their house and robbed them. (So far. ;-))
So, here a brief description of myself: First of all I’m a nerd in terms of books, films, shows, and music, plus I’m more on the “dark side” means I’m kinda.. metal, goth, something like that, but I don’t like labels that much so I wouldn’t count myself to a specific scene.
I’m into crossover, like different genres of heavy metal, rock, punk, but I also like the weird stuff, cabaret, some electro swing and stuff. The weirder the better. Some bands I’m currently listening to are Alestorm, Gloryhammer, a lot of Tool, and Grausame Töchter. For books, I read everything I can. I’m almost reading non stop, mostly fiction, sometimes nonfiction and comics. Shows I line are Doctor Who, iZombie, and.. I don’t know really, I’m watching more films at the moment. Horror movies interest me the most currently.
My favorite subjects are biology and philosophy, I have a project book where I write about everything I want to, I write poems (my muse is a girl in my English class who is always eating during the lessons), I’m not doing sports but like to discuss a lot, I’m not a picky eater at all, and I’m drawing and crafting very much but wouldn’t considering me an artist, I don’t like deciding, red hair is my guild pleasure, I love sweets and probably eat to much of them, I’m not afraid of spiders and fascinating by nature (even though I killed a cactus by accident once), I’m vegetarian but wound try to dissect an animal because I’m very curious of everything, I’m having a lot of crushes, I would like to travel but I’m very lazy. How I would describe myself in one word? Wibbly-wobbly. There is way much more about me and I probably forgot the important stuff.

Preferences: I’d like to talk to who people 15-18 years old, one year under or above does not matter that much.
I would like to have snail mail only, since I’m trying to cut down my internet use. But i would like to exchange some messages first before coming to snail mail. I’d prefer if you live in the EU (or near Germany). If you don’t like decorating fancy letters or don’t have any money for small gifts, I don’t mind at all, the content and making the other one happy matters!

anonymous asked:

my mystery snail randomly had a baby snail and i still don't know how it happened it's alone with a betta! nature is wild

mystery snails lay huge egg cases so it’s likely that your baby snail isn’t a mystery (unless its a tiny mystery that hitched a ride in with something else!) :O if you’ve added plants recently you may have pond or bladder snails tho! :p either way, congrazzles on your tiny snail! :D

Napstablook’s “Birth” Year

(undertale spoilers)

The monsters of Undertale have their own social networking site called the UnderNet. Several characters have their own profiles on there – Alphys, Papyrus, Undyne, and Napstablook. Interestingly, three of these have usernames that end with numbers. This seems to refer to the common practice of using the birth year as part of the username. In Napstablook’s case, their username ends with 22. This could mean their “birth” year is 1922 or 2022, given that the game likely takes place in 21XX. If that’s the case, which year would it be? Our best clues come from the customers of their snail farm.

From time to time, Napstablook had some visitors at their farm. One was a regular who disappeared.

Throughout their journey, Frisk befriended many monsters. Out of all of them, only one had a huge fascination with snails: Toriel.

It’s very likely that this main customer was Toriel, who baked snail pies and read fun facts about snails. The reason for her disappearance would be that she secluded herself in the Ruins after her children’s deaths. Although Napstablook may have run into her in the Ruins, given how all the monsters avoid Toriel, they likely disappear when she appears. Or Napstablook could be respecting the regular’s privacy and not revealing who she is.

So who would be the other customer?

This is likely Asgore, who probably continues to buy snails out of habit or in memory of Toriel. This is backed by the contents of his fridge.

It’s odd that Napstablook calls Asgore “some hairy guy” as if they do not recognize the king, but considering how reclusive and asocial Napstablook is portrayed, this fits well with their character. In fact, Napstablook is depicted as a shut-in, having to run the business now that the rest of the ghost family left.

How does this information help us? If Napstablook was helping out with the farm when Toriel and Asgore were still together, they had to have been around before Chara fell in 201X. This gives Napstablook enough time to recognize Toriel as a regular and then notice her disappearance. With this evidence and using the assumption that the numbers in the username implies “birth” year, it is speculated that Napstablook was “born” in 1922.

I’ve wanted a pen pal for a while now, because I’d like to branch out, learn about other places, and also have something to look forward to. Some of my hobbies include baking, planning/managing events, and watching netflix(does that count as a hobby?). I also like dogs, plants, Lana Del Rey, coffee, cake decorating, makeup, mythology, volunteering, and painting(watercolor, but I’m not good at it). I’d really love to have a pen pal who shares some of my interests and doesn’t mind sending or receiving huge snail mail letters/packages.

Preferences: I’d prefer someone 15 or 16, and I’d prefer female but that I’m not too concerned with.

Summer blues + disgusting snails

This summer so far has been exceedingly crappy even by Finnish standards. Take today for example:

  • Its almost the end of July and the max temperature has been +10 C
  • I have to wear woollen socks and thick sweatpants indoors (the heating’s turned off in the whole block of flats because ~summer~)
  • It hailed and rained freezing cold water simultaneously (I got so drenched I could wring water from my knickers afterwards)
  • I haven’t seen the sun for three weeks now

And the final touch which makes me believe that the Apocalypse is near:

  • The pavement on my way to work was swarmed with hundreds!! of!! huge!! snails!! (I wish I was exaggerating. I had to ride my bike over them and the crunching sounds made me feel simultaneous disgust and pity after I saw their remains stuck to the bike tyres only disgust)

I hope everyone else is having a better, sunnier and warmer summer than I am!!

Sojourner caravan beast. The sapient denizens of their homeland use their migrations as gigantic transportation for trade and travel, similar to a river. They cannot be commanded or directed, but they never make any protest when being loaded up with tons of goods and supplies. The largest sometimes carry mobile towns. They have never been known to attack or retaliate to any threat or violence committed to them. They seem to just be huge walking snail plants. How they navigate is not known. 

visited a magical place in the middle of nature with my friend today. he is a very good soul and that place was truly wonderful - i felt so calm and relaxed and tingling sensations went through my body. there was a little pond that was so pretty.. 

an old man had made a home out of that forest in the 20th century and the run-down buildings were still there. my friend showed me an old newspaper (from -94) which had an article about faeries and a really awesome picture of a purple sky. under that magazine i found a huge snail. let me tell you - i love snails.


the old man who owned that place, died in 2004. he called himself star fairy and i think that is just so amazing and meaningful.

i had a dream i owned a huge snail thats the only good dream ive had in weeks. her snail was like the size of a volley ball and i loved her

THE PROCESS: AN INTERVIEW WITH POETIC KINETICS

By now you’re probably aware of the extraordinary works produced by art collective Poetic Kinetics. The giant astronaut? That’s them. The huge snail with a foam party machine in the tail? That’s them. This years caterpillar -> butterfly installation at Coachella? That’s them too! 

We caught up with Patrick Shearn, the President and Co-Founder of the LA-based collective, last month to learn more about the process of bringing these amazing concepts to life at festivals around the world year after year.

Taking Turns

Pairing: Ten/Rose
Rating: M; NSFW
Warning: slight dub-con (of the aphrodisiac variety, but consent is given)
Summary: ‘Now we’re even, Rose Tyler,’ he exclaimed in that over the top voice of his paired with a manic grin. It was entirely unfair that he could be so unaffected while she was a stuttering mess against the wall. And that was how the game had started, because Rose Tyler decided that she did not want to play to be even. She wanted to play to win.

It didn’t really happen the way Rose Tyler expected it to.

Not that she had expected romantic candlelit dinners and proclamations of love in the form of poetry from the Doctor, but this game of one-upping the other wasn’t exactly the way she figured he would go about it either.

It all started by accident really.

Map of Alethrion: Tocha and its Windmills

CLICK HERE to watch the two films The Reward and The First Hero - please support and share the Kickstarter for the epic Tales of Alethrion the animated series!

Tocha is the most common land of Alethrion and it is here most adventurers begin their travels. Vito and Wilhelm grew up in the peaceful and boring farmer village Tohan. Later they almost got eaten in Lake Love, flew over the Canyon of Prey on big birds and got in a deadly battle in the Windmill City of Draloque. It is an area of Alethrion that has a bit of everything and you can live a whole life travelling here without missing out on anything.

The electricity in the world of Alethrion comes from nature. Which is also why you will see a lot of windmills everywhere - especially in Tocha. Magic is used for attacking but is hard to control and therefore not used as a main energy source. It is hard to contain energy which makes it hard to use a lot of energy at once unless there is a lot of wind as there is in Draloque.

Let us present some of the most known areas of Tocha:

Draloque: The Windmill City . It is the highest placed city which connects the Canyon of Prey with the civilized world. There is so much wind that the windmills always grants the city energy. It is always packed with parties, mafias and casinos. Many visit this place but very few stay here for a long time. There are always new faces and you should always keep your wallet close. You can find most of the things you need here. It is the hometown of Mira, Tira Uruth and Zit.

Tohan, farmer town Where Vito and Wilhelm grew up. This is the most boring place in Alethrion. When something happens, like a hero riding by, everybody become overly excited. They are farmers and are living the simple life here. Sometimes, very rarely, young people of Tohan travel out to discover what lies beyond the horizon line.

Gnobel, the engineer’s capital . The Canyon of Prey has all the materials an engineer would want to play with which is also why Gnobel is placed in the middle of it. It is a city where all the best educated craftsmen work and many different races live. The transports are going in and out all of the time. One of their biggest projects were to build Draloque the Windmill City. It would have been nothing without Gnobel, which is also why inventions come to Draloque first.

Canyon of Prey It is difficult to pass if you don´t fly over it or use the small roads on the hill sides. People use big birds or air vehicles to get through. The canyon is not inhibited by many, mostly birds and mountain goats live here.

Lake Love Very large fish can be caught here and this is what brings many fishermen in danger. Intelligent octopuses have mermaid arms and the big fish also have a taste for land creatures. Also, secret caves can be found on the little islands and under the lake.

The Slit Some say that this bottomless hole was made by the gods many years ago. But different tribes and creatures have settles on the sides of the hole in different levels. Some say that this is the only way down to humun, the banished god, and other demon like creatures who only fear the light. A few religious cults have found out that Humun is a vegetarian and throws down veggie dishes as sacrifices for him.  

Targo Falls the most fresh water comes from this great fall. Tribe against against pollution live around here.  

Bowey Disco barbarian tribe that really like their hair and take dance super serious. It is a city that is build in a huge snail house, so it moves around the land. Uruth, from Mira´s gang, grew up here, but was sent away when he flirted with the other male dancers.

Ugarth A harbor that consists of bridges with houses attached to them. Vehicles have been replaced with boats and they trade with fish and sea merchandise. Aquatic people (merfolk) live side by side with humans here.

Dern The vulcano village where Alethrion killed the Dern Dragon so that the people could live in peace. Great vacation area and nice to visit for backpackers looking for exotic and different areas.

The Story Of Fall Out Snoy (Snail Fall Out Boy)

It’s the snummer (snail summer) of 2001, Snoe (snail Joe) meets Snatrick (snail Patrick) and he’s like “Yo, I know about snusic (snail music)” and Snatrick (snail Patrick)’s like “Yo, I know more about snusic (snail music)” “That’s impossible. Do You wanna start a snand (snail band)?” And Snatrick (snail Patrick)’s like “Yeah… that’s cool.” And then he’s like “Yo, this is a snook store (snail book store) it’s not a snusic store (snail music store)!” And then they met at Snatrick (snail Patrick)’s snouse (snail house). And Snatrick (snail Patrick)’s wearing snorts (snail shorts) and snocks (snail socks) and a snat (snail hat). Snatrick (snail Patrick) is playin’ snrums (snail drums) for some snuckin’ (snail fuckin) reason! And Snete (snail Pete)’s there, for some reason! They start playin’ snusic (snail music) together. And they’re like “Oh let’s play some snuckin’ (snail fuckin) snovers (snail covers) from some other snands (snail bands)!” It was like, Green Snay (snail Green Day) and snuckin’ (snail fuckin) Snisfits (snail Misfits) and snuckin’ (snail fuckin) Snamones (snail Ramones)! Snete (snail Pete) said to Snoe (snail Joe) “Yo we gotta change this snit (snail shit) up! Yo we’ve played all these snands (snail bands), let’s play snit (snail shit) from Fall Out Snoy (snail Fall Out Boy).” And so Snete (snail Pete) and Snatrick (snail Patrick) are like “Yo, that’s snope (snail dope). But we need a snuckin’ (snail fuckin) snrummer (snail drummer)!” Because Snatrick (snail Patrick)’s playin’ snrums (snail drums) and he’s a sninger (snail singer)! And he’s like “Yo! I got a snoul (snail soul) voice!” And there like “Wait, how do you have a snoul (snail soul) voice!?!” And he’s like “Yo watch this! SNYEeeeeEeeeeEeeaaaAAAH!” (snail YEeeeeEeeeeEeeaaaAAAH!) and they’re like “Oh my Snod (snail God)! That sounds like snoul (snail soul)!” So they put it in the snong (snail song) and it was like “WHERE IS YOUR SNOY (SNAIL BOY) TONIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT!!!?!!!?!” And then they’re like “Yo, this is snuckin’ (snail fuckin) perfect. This is Fall Out Snoy (snail Fall Out Boy).” And they made snecords (snail records) like, Snevening (snail evening) Out with Your Ex-Snirlfriend (snail ex-girlfriend). It’s called Snevening (snail evening) Out with Your Ex-Snirlfriend (snail ex-girlfriend), everybody loves it. It’s called Eating Out Your Snirlfriend (snail girlfriend), and it’s real and it doesnt matter. And Snete (snail Pete) talked to Snatrick (snail Patrick) and Snoe (snail Joe) and he was like “Yo what the snuuuck (snail fuck)! Yo this is gonna be snuckin’ (snail fuckin) snooooope (snail dope)!” So they made a snecord (snail record), and it was called Take This to Your Snave (snail grave). They made it without a snrummer (snail drummer)! And they had like three, four snrummers (snail drummers) come in. The four snrummers (snail drummers) they had come in were like… Snosh Freese (snail Josh Freese), Sneil Peart (snail Neil Peart), the dude from Snoto (snail Toto)… The fourth one was like the guy from Papa Snoach (snail Papa Roach) or something. And they were like, “Yo, we need Snandy Hurly (snail Andy Hurly). Snandy Hurley (snail Andy Hurley). Take This to Your Snave (snail grave). Snuckin (snail fuckin) snecord (snail record) it.” And he did it, and he killed it. He was like, snbigadigadigalalululapssshhhh! (snail bigadigadigalalululapssshhhh!) Killing the snins (snail skins)! Tapping  the snins (snail skins)! Tapping the snims (snail rims)! Playing the snit (snail shit)! Killing these snitches (snail bitches)! Wrapping it out! “We should get signed, to Snueled by Ramen (snail Fueled by Ramen). Cause these snuys (snail guys) know what the snuck (snail fuck) is going on.” And they were like “Yo, if you can make our snene (snail scene) any bigger than it is, which is not snuckin’ (snail fuckin) hard. We will sign you snuys (snail guys).” Snete (snail Pete) was like “Yo! We got this snecord (snail record) that’s fuckin’ snope (snail dope) snude (snail dude)!! It’s called, Take This to Your Snave (snail grave).” Hey, it’s gonna be called From Under the Snork Tree (snail cork tree), its gonna be snuckin (snail fuckin) huge. And then Snatrick (snail Patrick)’s like “I gotta keep it real, I gotta keep it snartistic (snail artistic). These are three snongs (snail songs) that are gonna make the snalbum (snail album) and its called… This is called Thanks for the Snemories (snail memories), 20 Dollar Snosebleed (snail nosebleed), and Snugar (snail sugar) We’re Going Down..” And they made this snecord (snail record) that was snucking (snail fucking) snope (snail dope) and it snucking (snail fucking) hit on the snarts (snail charts). Like one, two, three! Three, two, one! Three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten! TEN TO ONE! From Under the Snork Tree (snail cork tree) sold like four million snecords (snail records)! Ten million snecords (snail records)! Fifteen million snecords (snail records)!!! And Snendon Urie (snail Brendon Urie) had nothing to do with the entire snecord (snail record). And Snatrick (snail Patrick) was like “That’s gooooooooood!” Snete (snail Pete) was like “Yo, SNUCK YOU (snail fuck you)! I can do whatever I want!” Snoe (snail Joe) was like “Yeah its cool sman (snail man), whatever… I don’t give a snit (snail shit).” And then Snandy (snail Andy) was like “Eh… Cool!” And Snete (snail Pete) was like “Snakeup (snail makeup) is snuckin’ (snail fuckin) great for a snuy (snail guy). Because it makes a snuy (snail guy) look beautiful. Which a lot of times, a snuy (snail guy) is not beautiful. And I wanna change that. I wanna make snure (snail sure) everybody thinks that snuys (snail guys) are beautiful.” Snete (snail Pete) was like “Oh my Snod (snail God) I’m so embarrassed about this snick pic (snail dick pic)!” And then I saw the snick pic (snail dick pic) and I was like “Eh, it’s not bad. It’s not a bad snick (snail dick). Let’s be real.” Panic! at the Snisco (snail Panic! at the Disco) made Snolling Stone (snail Rolling Stone) one issue before Fall Out Snoy (snail Fall Out Boy). And Fall Out Snoy (snail Fall Out Boy) made the snissue (snail issue) right after Snanic! (snail Panic!) And they were so snissed! (snail pissed) They were like “Yo snuck you (snail fuck you) snuys (snail guys)!” They were like “Yo! Snanic! (snail Panic!) has the cover of Snolling Stone (snail Rolling Stone)!? Yo, snuck (snail fuck) these snudes (snail dudes), we’re gonna go snucking (snail fucking) sniles (snail miles) above! We’re gonna hit every snucking (snail fucking) snontinent (snail continent) there is known to sman (snail man)!” But they didn’t! Because they missed a second of snime (snail time), apparently. They were like “Oh snit (snail shit) we got every snontinent (snail continent).” And they didn’t actually hit it. Snude (snail dude), Snete (snail Pete) was like “WHAT THE SNUCK (snail fuck)!” Oh you didn’t snuckin’ (snail fuckin) make the snontinent (snail continent). It’s like snuck you (snail fuck you)! So From Under the Snork Tree (snail cork tree) happens, we snuckin’ (snail fuckin) have three, four years of snawesomeness (snail awesomeness)! Like sneople (snail people) are cumming on themselves it’s so big! So Fall Out Snoy (snail Fall Out Boy) was like, so Snatrick (snail Patrick)’s like “Yo were gonna name this snecord (snail record) From Under the Snork Tree (snail cork tree) and from Infinity on Snigh (snail high).” Snete (snail Pete) was like “Yo, Folie à Sneux (snail Folie à Deux) means, the sneatric (snail theatric) of two.” Fall Out Snoy (snail Fall Out Boy) was like “Yo, we gotta take a snreak (snail break)” meaning, Snete (snail Pete) was like “Yo, we gotta take a snreak (snail break) snro (snail bro)” and Snatrick (snail Patrick)’s like, “I need time for my snusic (snail music)! SNYAAAAAAHHHH!” (snail YAAAAAAHHHH!) And Snoe (snail Joe)’s like “Yo, I need time to find the snuckin’ (snail fuckin) art snude (snail dude) I gotta find some snuckin’ (snail fuckin) sneau-metal (snail meau-metal).” And Snandy (snail Andy)’s like “I’m just gonna play with some snuckin’ (snail fuckin) snetal bands (snail metal bands).” And they were like, “Alright, this snreak (snail break)’s been like three snears (snail years) long. Two snears (snail years) long. Three snears (snail years) long. Three and a half. We gotta snuckin’ (snail fuckin) come back snude (snail dude). We gotta come back SNRONG (snail strong)! We gotta make this snit (snail shit) legit. It’s gonna be snuckin’ (snail fuckin) snope (snail dope). It’s gonna go snuckin’ (snail fuckin) sny (snail sky) high. We’re gonna make a snuckin’ (snail fuckin) snecord (snail record) that sails the snies (snail skies). We’re gonna call this snecord (snail record)… Save Snock And Roll (snail Save Rock N Roll).” So they made Alone Snogether (snail Alone Together), Snight ‘Em Up (snail Light ‘Em Up), Alone Snogether (snail Alone Together) , Snoenix (snail Phoenix). And everyone’s like “What the snuck (snail fuck)? You’re working with this snuy (snail guy) who snuckin’ (snail fuckin) snecorded (snail recorded) Avril Snavigne (snail Avril Lavigne) and Snink! (snail Pink!)” Snete (snail Pete) was like “Yo, we’re gonna end up in tour with Panic! at the Snisco (snail Panic! at the Disco) and Twenty Snilots (snail Twenty Pilots).” And that’s all. And that’s all that matters. And that’s how the snucking (snail fucking) snory (snail story) goes.
