The days ticked by like hours on a clock, and Natalie watched the snow
from the new year melt into grey slush that people dragged into her bakery. The
white snowman on her welcome mat turned nearly black, and when she rolled it up
to throw in the trash, she choked back the tears she had wanted to cry since
taking all of her Christmas decorations down.
Went up the mountain last night to hopefully shoot Orion before the season ended. The hazy sky was filled with diffuse light, smearing the sky. Snoqualmie, WA. [OC][5472x3648] : johnnywash1 || ourspaceisbeautiful.tumblr.com
I apologize again about the lack of Winchesters in this part, but I promise they’re coming soon! And if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, anything, please, please, please don’t hesitate to send me an ask! I love this story and I will talk about it all day if given the chance!

Original Characters, Missouri Moseley
The sky is a flat slate grey, letting loose a continuous deluge of cold autumn rain. The red and green of traffic lights are smeared across the wet asphalt, the only spots of color in a desaturated world.
She tries to avoid the worst of the puddles, but it’s already a lost cause. With each step she can feel water squeezing out the holes in her soaked shoes. At this point the rain seems like adding insult to injury. She’s tired and sore and hungry and cold, and now she’s wet too.
It’s been about a month since she left Marion’s roadhouse. The money she took has long since petered out, and now all she has left in her wallet is six bucks and some assorted change. And now, with the rain, she doesn’t know where’s she going to sleep tonight because she was planning on crashing on a park bench but that’s no longer an option.
She pushes the thought from her mind. Worry about sleep later. Worry about food later, even though the small coffee she had this morning is gone and her stomach is rumbling. Worry about money and a job and all that later. She’s here for a reason.
Some nights I watch the stars
Swirling at a point
Just out of my reach
I think to myself
How beautiful they must be
This is nothing
Compared to my similar thoughts
About your sweet lips
How beautiful they must be
If they were on mine.
Some days I see the sunrise
Pondering infinite beginnings
Of planets colliding
Under the weight of gravity
Under the sight of galaxies
Who never thought
To lend a star
And I remember
How that is nothing
Compared to the infinite deaths
When those sunset lips
Touched someone else.
When the sky is dotted with stars
And the edges of the sky
Are smeared with light pollution
The blood flowing through my veins
Exiting through my pen
Pooling onto wrinkled pages
I see the stars
Becoming engulfed by our own lights
And I laugh
With a hint of something bitter
On my breath
And I know
That I am not alone
In the struggle
Against something that I cannot help
Because the extinction of stars
And your lips are caressing
1- Blood smear. The light colored circles that doesnt have nuclei are erythrocytes, the darker ones are neutrofiles. Purple colored nuclei are however, i have no idea. We will learn about them next year appearently.
2- The stingray like cells are purkinje cells. They all have nucleus, the ones that look like they dont are like that because it’s a slice from cerebellum and nucleus stayed in the other half of the cell. The smaller cells are grannular neuron cells. The slide is from cerebellum.
3- Liver cells(Hepatocytes). Some have multiple nuclei, some have single nucleus.
4- Adipocytes. They are stained with OsO4 (osmium tetraoxcide), they are really big cells and the fat inside of the cells push the cell to a side so they are excentric nucleuses.
This computer-simulated image shows a supermassive black hole at the core of a galaxy. The cosmic monster’s powerful gravity distorts space around it like the mirror in a fun house, smearing the light from nearby stars.
Scientists just found one such black hole (weighing as much as 17 billion suns) in a sparsely populated section of the universe. The implication? These behemoths are much more common than we thought.
Join AbortStigma for an Internet Storm on October 20th!
On a day where pro-lifers choose to be silent, let pro-choice bellow!
AbortStigma has a Twitter, a facebook, and - obviously - a Tumblr. We also have a DeviantART and a Reddit (though they don’t get much traffic, but maybe this year they will!)
During our storm:
Share your abortion experiences (please, remember not to share others’ experiences unless they explicitly do not mind!)
Share your support
Spread abortion facts
Spread abortion support helplines and forums
Also, show your support for Planned Parenthood in light of the smear campaibng by CMP by also using #standwithPP!
No one deserves to be forced into a pregnancy!
Also, as a note, this would be a great time to get pro-choice-in some members! Pro-Choice In is a brand-new organization looking to start pro-choice chapters all over the country and, maybe, the world! Pro-Choice In is meant to get pro-choicers in the same cities in contact with each other, so we can organize, counter-protest, hold rallies, and even create volunteer opportunities!
