What in the world is this? It’s a dazzling example of bioluminescence (living organisms that produce light). In this case, the light comes from firefly squid (Watasenia scintillans). Extraordinary, yes?
(I have to say, I love this one, I have Heterochromia myself, my eyes are brown but I have been told that one eye is more mahogany and has a reddish tint to it while the other eye has fleck of gold through out the iris along with gray depending on my mood. Thanks for the lovely chance to bring this to live!!! ^_^ Mod Firefly)
The first time he saw the miracle in his
S/O eyes, he thought it was a result of being injured during the previous
mission. He rushed to their side, fear on his face. “Is everything ok Hanzo?”
They would ask as he looks in their eyes, confused by how they were not
hurting. “Your eyes, they are 2 different colors, is this some kind of magic I
do not know about?” He questions as they would shake their heads. “its not
magic…I was born with these 2 different colors for my eyes.” They would say
with some fear and sadness in their voice. “My Love, I am not saying that it is
a bad thing. I was stating that I have never had a chance to see bow beautiful
the colors are in your eyes. On anyone else, they would not be as beautiful but
for you, they make the whole soul I fell in love with even more precious.” He
would finish with a kiss and a smile. Yep, he is pay closer attention to them.
He would first notice their eye colors when
they come to help him calm down one night after a rough mission. He was tired
but he could not fall asleep so he tried to meditate outside under the moon. As
he started to relax, he hears someone behind him and he grabs his sacred blade,
ready to defend himself. As he goes to attack, he comes face to face with his
beloved. “S/O-san, what are you doing up? You should be resting.” He would ask
as they come to sit by him. “McCree told me that it was a rough fight…Genji,
please look at me.” They would calmly ask as he looks at them, noticing for the
first time that their eyes are 2 different colors but just by looking in their
eyes, he felt relaxed. “Shall we meditate together then retire to bed.” They
offer as he nods and takes a deep breath, allowing his eyes to close. Let’s
just say, now when he meditates, he thinks about the marvelous and beautiful
colors that are in their eyes.
If she looked up from her computer for
longer than 5 seconds, she would have seen that they had 2 different colored
irises but it was only when her S/O was having a hard time looking for their
contacts that she realized it. “Why are you wearing 2 different colored
contacts?” She asked after a moment of thinking. “Dear, I have always had 2
different colored irises…I have Heterochromia, I was born with it.” They would
reply as Sombra would smile at them and grab their hand. “Wear your glasses
more often, I like how they look and I don’t think they are doing you justice.”
She winks at them as they blush. For now on, contacts are for battle only.
Most of the time, she would have her
goggles on so the world could be slightly discolored and she sees that golden
color that comes from her protective goggles. She would notice their eyes the
first time she took off the googles for cleaning. She saw the mixture of the
colors and fell in love with the beautiful detailing and amazingly contrasting
both irises are. “Darling, I love the color of your eyes, they look smashing on
you.” She would say with a wink, making them blush. Let’s just say that she
would keep looking in your eyes for now on just to see the beauty of the world
because even something that most see as a weird mutation, she sees as a unique
gift her S/O possess.
I am weirding myself through words I have opened all of these wounds my blood flows sluggish more like honey than water I never knew my insides were so golden maybe I should have cut deeper should have listened to the crickets spin their lucky tales with scissored legs should have decoded the rhythmic dots and dashes of mating fireflies living lightning in the sky should have known when the nights of my childhood were so heavy with damp heat I could have lifted the air up on my shoulders and thrown it over a cliff if only I had known the past settles over us like velvet cloaks for freedom all we need do is shrug
Cause tonight, we’re going to be beautiful. These marks on our faces were the living proof that we made it. We will live the remaining lives like fireflies, dreaming bewildered on sunsets and sunrises. Here’s to our raising cups—child at heart; tamed and pained, made by love.
Armed Pacifism - one of the few things the Christian Bible, Mahatma Gandhi, the Dalai Lama, Jackie Chan and Malcolm Reynolds all agree on! Not to mention that it is backed up by crime statistics and expert witnesses!
A person (or group of persons) who believe in nonviolence, but having determined not to be victims, armed and trained themselves. Hoping to never use such knowledge or armament, but understanding in a less-than-perfect world, such preparedness has its place.
