one of my favorite dinosaur facts ever is that the dinosaur named irritator was given that name because of the fact that paleontologists figured out that the skull they had received of this unnamed specimen was artificially elongated by illegal fossil hunters who thought longer skull = more money, and so they named the dinosaur irritator just bc they were really fucking pissed about it
Hey so tomorrow is Thanksgiving and whatnot and I know a lot of you have to go home to stressful situations with your families and as someone who had to do that every holiday in the past I am really sorry.
Just wanted to let you all know that I love you and support you and I will be by myself tomorrow and off from work all day so hmu if you need anyone to talk to.
Sometimes I think about Harry and Draco getting married, and who would change their name. And I love everyone’s ideas about which one of them would change their name and why. It’s always so beautiful.
But in the end, all I can think is neither of them would. And not because they’d be losing something, losing their name, but because of something important and powerful they can’t explain.
Because to Harry, the other man is Draco first and Malfoy second. But Malfoy is still a huge part of Draco in the same way the Dark Mark is. Something he was that’s also part of who he became, and the beauty in his darkness comes from the strength of his will and determination to change himself for the better. The world sees him as Draco, but Harry sees him as both. Harry loves Malfoy in the same way he loves Draco, for everything he was and everything he is.
And for Draco, well it’s Harry now and Potter second. Potter who died in the forest to save everyone, who was reborn just Harry. Potter who still belongs to the Wizarding World but Harry who will always belong just to Draco. And his name holds so much weight, so many expectations and memories and there is something almost visceral in its intensity when Draco whispers the name against Harry’s skin in the dark of the night. Draco knows Harry has always wanted to be just Harry, but Draco sees them both and he loves him for everything he is and everything he didn’t want to be but was anyway. There is a strength in Harry’s name, in his perseverance that makes Draco feel safe.
And when they join hands and say I do, well yeah they’re becoming a family, becoming something new, but only because of who they were and who they are.
Because it’s Harry now, and yeah it might be Draco first…but Potter and Malfoy are forever.
Sorry for all the weird reblogs I’ve made in the last several minutes, but guys… we only have until December 14th to do convince Congress that getting rid of Net Neutrality is a TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO-GOOD, VERY BAD IDEA!
This affects us all. Not just Americans, but everyone who enjoys a free and open internet to keep ourselves entertained, or to talk and keep in touch with our friends, or even just to make a simple Google search!
Forcing people to pay extra for access to the websites we love is like trying to sell bottled water… No, it’s like dirtying up all the existing bottled water in the world with mud and chemicals and piss, and then having a new, special
clean water pop up, but it’s much more expensive. (I can’t take credit for making up this analogy, that was John Oliver. He made that joke back in 2014, back when we all thought we’d SAVED Net Neutrality. -_-)
Please, if you read this, reblog every post about Net Neutrality you can find. Feel free to reblog the ones I just recently posted. That’s the least we can all do. And if you want to do more, follow some of the links in those articles. Sign petitions, write and call your representatives, do whatever you can.
It’s up to you. You have got to STAY DETERMINED!!!
gonna post a WIP of what I’m working on under the readmore ✌️
it’s for a black & white monster-themed zine put together by @jomajaba. camera trap photos make me deeply uneasy, so my idea was mythological creatures (a harpy & a manticore) captured unintentionally on trail cams. I’ll also post the harpy below, though I think y’all have seen her
