I have had these designs lying around for nearly a year now? about time i did something with them! added in a few other ones and smartened up some of the paint work. 

There will DEFINITELY be inaccuracies in the weapons, so please don’t think I don’t know XD it’s just a little bit of fun to explore some more variations and morphology in Pokemon. the original post can be found HERE. and the pokedex entries can be found below the read more line.

MEEEEHHHH I like it but I don’t… so here it is anyway. Cinders looking menacing. I imagine the scar being very… scary if he get very angry. 

So this is either “I’mma fuck you up” look or “I’mma fuck you!” look… you decide. 

Also my lovely Cinders likes the dudes. He have very little intimate experience with women and preferred the intimacy he had had with men over ladies. He is VERY respectful to women tho. A bit fascinated by women in general in a non-sexual way. Amazed at the fact they carry babies (or lay eggs in some cases) and find them very cool.

He would never question a woman as a warrior or anything like that. Women are just people with different bits to him. And his Female Jedi General and Shaak Ti before that kind of made him unable to even consider women as anything but equal, if even more important than him. 

Cinders had a VERY close relationship to one of his batch brothers. He was killed in the event that gave Cinders his name tho and he never speak about him or any of his other companions from before that time.

Reblogs are loved.

Below, we have compiled a list of dragons created from our followers to inspire any story you as both a player or dungeon master might create.

Monarch Populations on the Mend?

After years of declining populations, there is evidence that North American monarch butterfly populations may be growing. The annual survey of their wintering grounds in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico shows that the area they are occupying has grown from 1.13 hectares (2.8 acres) in 2014 to about 4 hectares (10 acres) in 2015. This increase is even more important since they were at a record low in 2013, covering only 0.67 hectares (1.66 acres). While this is an improvement, 20 years ago they would cover 18 hectares (44 acres). Monarchs clump together so densely on trees that they are counted by the area they cover rather than by counting individuals.

Absurd Creature of the Week: The Wasp That Enslaves Cockroaches With a Sting to the Brain

In the 1962 film The Manchurian Candidate, which my 10th grade history teacher showed us under the mistaken impression that it could teach us anything at all about history, an American war hero isbrainwashed by communists to assassinate a presidential nominee. It doesn’t work, because the reds went about the mind-control all wrong. They would have done well to take a lesson from the emerald cockroach wasp (aka the jewel wasp), which employs a very real and far more disturbing and effective method of brainwashing.

This parasitic marvel enslaves cockroaches by stinging their brains in ridiculously precise spots and injecting mind-controlling venom. The wasp then leads its zombified roach to a chamber, where it lays a single egg on its perfectly relaxed host and seals it inside with pebbles. Here the larva bores into the cockroach and feeds off its organs before killing it and emerging from its corpse into the light of day.

This is nature’s own Orkin Man — if the Orkin Man was psychologically imbalanced and just a little too excited about his job, and didn’t have all the wings and stuff. But just think of the evolution involved here. The jewel wasp has over millions of years not only developed a mind-control drug, but an astonishingly methodical brand of brain surgery to deliver it.
