The Monkey of the Inkpot from Jorge Luis Borges “Book of Imaginary Beings”

“This animal, common in the north, is four or five inches long; its eyes are scarlet and its fur is jet black, silky, and soft as a pillow. It is marked with a curious instinct – the taste for India ink. When a person sits down to write, the monkey squats cross-legged nearby with one forepaw folded over the other, waiting until the task is over. Then it drinks what is left of the ink, and afterward sits back on its haunches, quiet and satisfied.” (Borges cites Wang Tai-Hai, 1791)”

Zutara Week 2017: Confessions of a Teenage Sugar Queen

The title is a throwback to a movie I liked when I was in high school, so that is the voice I’ve chosen for this AU. (Not Lindsay Lohan’s from the movie, just me trying to channel my inner teenage Katara…)

All of my @zutaraweek submissions will be part of one continuous story. Get ready for some slow-burn Zutara angst starting with Day One: Fire Lady.

“I can’t wait until summer!” A blur of orange brushes past me in the school hallway. “I’m gonna go hang gliding and kite surfing and eat ice cream for breakfast and donuts for lunch!”

That would be Aang. He lives with his head in the clouds on most days.

“Let me guess. Cream puffs for dinner, Twinkletoes?”

Toph is pretty solid for a freshman. She keeps Aang grounded when he starts to get too flighty. I like hanging out with them, but sometimes their immaturity annoys me. I can tell this is one of those moments. No one can eat dessert all day. Talk about a serious sugar crash.

“What about you, Sugar Queen?” Toph asks.

I don’t know why she calls me that. OK, maybe I suggested once that I could survive solely on fudgsicles and moon pies, but that was only after that bad breakup with Jet. Toph elbows me hard in the ribs, her usual gesture for getting my attention.

“Oww! I have plans this summer, alright? I can’t just goof off. I’m going to get a job and do something that matters for my future!” I hate how haughty that sounds, but I’ve been under a lot of pressure lately. I hurry past them before I say anything I might regret.

“Geez, what’s with her?” Toph mutters. Aang sighs airily in response.

They just don’t get it.

anonymous asked:

I really like the ageplay reaction and i was wondering if you could write one for one they are the little ones on the relationship

First of all, I would just like to say that for this particular reaction I wouldn’t see any of them being submissive when it comes to their sexual lives so age play would probably switch roles or be “turned off” during sex if they’re playing the younger role. Since that is the case, I’ll only do this as the “Normal Life” aspects of the age play relationship. Sorry for any inconvenience and for the lack of imagination on part for the “Sex life” aspect. 



Y/N: “Would you like marshmallows in your hot chocolate Xiumin?”

Y/N: “that’s right, now I hope grounding you will teach you a lesson. You’re grounded for 2 days”

Chanyeol: *pouts even more* “hmmm!”

small imaginary animal friends

There is a big fluffy lil mouse who transforms guilt over not being able to do things that need to be done, and survivour’s guilt and guilt over not being able to make other people not suffer. This lil gnawer will make sure guilt doesn’t gnaw at us!

There is a little elephant shrew (take a closer look at that snout!) who uses the excellent snout to evaluate if worries are useful or not. It mostly finds them unhelpful, but never worry - it won’t dismiss necessary concerns! The snout has special worry-evaluating snout-senses!  

There is an equally adorable hamster who transforms shame. They’re not ashamed of always munching and hoarding stuff, they don’t even have a concept of being ashamed; while I was trained to feel shame for all my needs, and more. The hamster transforms all kinds of shame, and reminds you that you are. And that is enough.

There is a little hedgehog who guards against triggers. Triggers have a hard time getting through those dense quills and chances are, they won’t affect you. The hedgehog can even eat them if they are small! But if they do get to you, the hedgehog will allow you to curl up and be safe.

The rat, big sibling to guilt-transforming mouse, also transforms guilt. The guilt over things you did wrong or wish you had done better or fear you are doing wrong or will do wrong in the future. Guilt will not make you a better person! But this rat will, together with mouse-friend, by freeing up the energy that is constrained by guilt and enableing you to put it to good use.

YoyoPy Fursonas!

I was drawing updated versions of my personal fursona and Yoyo wanted me to draw hers too! I was happy to~

Basically Im using a imaginary animal I made up in 2nd Grade with some tweaks since then (no longer made of geometry for example)  The update is: Now with more arm for more butterfly-like components. I called them a flutterfox but if you prefer, PapillioVulpes sounds fancier.

Yoyo is a tiger with feathery red wings! You probably recognize those attributes from her usual persona.

These were so much fun to draw…omg.

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc Chapter 2 Translation [PREVIEW]

Thanks to @chibiyuuto for posting the preview scans!  [Link Removed by @cardcaptorcoconut]

I went through them and did a rough translation of what’s available so far below.  I’m a little curious if the pages are in order, but for now, the translations are in the right to left order that the photos appear in @chibiyuuto’s post.

I just found out the issue is out on July 1st at my bookstore, so I’ll clean things up more on Friday night or Saturday morning (depending on how late I get back from work).

If you haven’t already, please see my translation notes for how I’ll be adding in footnotes for the new chapters.

Also, the two things I have to say from the preview are that Syaoran is TOO GOOD FOR THIS WORLD and Yamazaki/Naoko are an evil team, lol.

Oh. My. God. Stop.

You are not a “kin” anything you are a human being. You are a human being. You can imagine whatever you want, but that does not make it real

If you believe that you are not a human being, and that you are some kind of animal or imaginary person, you are suffering from a DELUSION and need MENTAL HELP from a PROFESSIONAL.

DELUSIONS can be harmful to your physical and mental well-being, especially if you let them go out of control, and others enable you.

You are a human being, you are a human being, you are a human being. Get the help you need. See a therapist today.

Different animal things:

Totem = a symbolic ancestor, an animal symbol for one’s clan. Word of Ojibwe origin.

Spirit guide/animal = Some sort of spiritual entity which guides/protects you and has an animal form. Similar concepts under different names exist in many religions.

Power animal = Kind of like above, in shaman traditions.

Fylgja = A type of spirit guide in animal shape from norse paganism, may be inherited through family lines.

Fursona = An anthropomorphic animal character that represents you in the furry fandom.

Furry = A) An anthropomorphic animal character B) A fan of such characters

Therianthropy = Identifying as an actual real life non-human animal mentally/spiritually (not physically). A therian is their theriotype (animal species), they are not separate personalities or entities.

Multiplicity = Experiencing multiple personalities.

Pet play = An erotic role-play in which at least on participant plays the part of a non-human animal.

Otherkin = A) Someone who identifies as a mythological non-human being spiritually/mentally B) In a wider sense, someone who identifies as something non-human spiritually/mentally.

Daemonism = Based on Philip Pullman’s fantasy books “His Dark Materials”, a practice in which you create a visualisation/imaginary friend in animal form that represents your personality and conscience.

This is just for throwing out some very basic stuff for those who wonder “am I X?” or “What is this experience called?”. Feel free to add and/or correct me.

Feelin’ kinda down today, so I colored an old Profesora Regina comic strip of mine from 2011. I drew it as a sorta fake Sunday strip on the subject of “pet death” for a newspaper project - I didn’t make it in, but something about this mad scientist girl in the woods got my wheels turning in the best way and this lil seed bloomed into my series Deep Forest. Click for the full view!

Pet deaths are always hard, even when your pets are imaginary. And what if you could make those imaginary pets real?  How much of their death is your responsibility…?
