Consideration of sexual color dimorphism in the Galrificus spacecatus

(Probably one among many such posts, rolling off the press :3)

So, now that we know what female Galra look like, I can’t help but notice something

Here are a few male Galra

Here are a few female Galra

Notice a big difference? Yeah, COLOR
With the kinda-exception of oddball Kolivan, male Galra are purple.  
K? They’re purple. Some are more lilac, some are more eggplant, some have markings that are *gasp* slightly paler shades of purple. Some are more violet, some are powdery bluish/lavender/whatever. But the theme?
Full stop

The ladies, however? We’ve got pink, blue, salmon, orange, teal, yellow. All sorts of markings in all sorts of colors

2 theories

  1. Make-up. All those face markings could be cosmetic. Which. Yeah, would actually be a super-fun idea, because pretty ladies & swag. However, I don’t think it’s the case. Because
    1. They’re on active military duty. Modern military and non-essential cosmetic alterations often don’t hang out together. 
    2. Well, if it’s cosmetic, then why aren’t any of the guys wearing it?
      (Again, argument can be made for Kolivan)

  2. All-natural skin pigmentation.  This, I think, is the more likely answer. AND it actually is more fun, because this means it could be an evolutionary holdover from Galra prehistory, perhaps even pre-sentience

Now. Take this journey with me, folks. Think of birds. Earth birds. Specifically, think of passerines (the sparrows, the robins, the birds-of-paradise, the bluejays, the swallows, etc. They flutter. They perch on stuff. They cheep, they sing, they squawk, they have a good time)

Remember their sexual dimorphisms? Remember how (not always, but often) one sex tends to be dull-looking, and the other tends to be pretty & flashy?  

There’s the courted, pursued, “stay at home/take care of the kids” half of the species. Typically, they’re very well-camouflaged (wouldn’t want to attract predators to their nests), and they look rather drab. They come in browns, grays… *whispers* perhaps purples?

And then, there’s the half that does the courting. And (once babies show up) they’re the ones who leave the nest more often, and who act (generally) as the breadwinners. THESE are the ones that usually come in bright pretty colors. Reds, blues, greens… salmons, oranges, pinks??


If we go waaaaay back in time, to their civilization’s beginnings-  waaaaaaay back to when physical markings would have most mattered-  we could tentatively conclude a few things about this (perhaps matriarchal?? Idk, but just perhaps????) Galra society

Picture it with me: big, bright, strong, eye-catching, courtship-performing females, who strut their stuff(!!) for smaller, drabber, homemaker males.

So, (at LEAST) in terms of their great-great ancestors, I guess what I’m trying to say is


The Final Scene - If I wrote it

Okay, so, short background on this: I get why Jared and Jensen think the show should end in one or both of them dying. I do. 

So, this is my take on the very last scene in Supernatural if they insist upon their characters dying. Because this popped into my head and I couldn’t get it out.

Basically, up until this point, Dean has made a heroic sacrifice and they will not be getting him back this time. As painful as it is, Sam and Cas (who I think will be human before the end of the show) are left behind and have to accept that.  Then, it’ll look like we’re leaving off on this really bummer note…only for this scene to suddenly take place. I’m thinking, start the credits and everything, only for them to be interrupted by this scene. I’m not gonna lie, guys: I got a little emotional writing this.

Also, again, keep in mind that I am by no means an expert in regards to screenwriting format.  I just think it’s fun to mess with. So please excuse any of my mistakes in that regard.

I hope you like it!

anonymous asked:

ok we know that tt can't do an english accent, but can you do an american one?

(( OOC: I’m……. not the best at accents. That is not to say I don’t love being horrible at them. For example, I spend my entire car journey yesterday speaking to myself like Korg from Thor Ragnarok. I was thoroughly entertained.

ALSO imma stick up for my pal and say TT’s British accent is FINE and far better than my American. But nothing on my Kermit the Frog. ))

A stream of golden sunlight filtered through his window. It was like a warm hand caressing his skin, begging for him to open his eyes and witness the beauty of the morning. His lashes parted, hand reaching out to grasp a handful of empty sheets next to him, reminiscing a warmth that was once there. Brian let a groggy sigh slip past his lips, a yawn following suit as he sat up in bed. It was a new morning, the start of an ordinary day and even now he could still smell your scent.

"I can't believe we're going to have that conversation again"

“Neither can I, because it’s hardly something worth getting so very upset over when all I’m doing is showing the depth of my affection for you by including you in all my activities,” Sherlock replied with a little huff. 

“Waking me up at all hours of the night to run case theories, organize evidence, and read me your latest Science of Deduction blog entry when I have work early the next morning is a display of affection?!” Molly countered in frustration. 

Sherlock hazarded a playful smirk. “That’s not all I woke you up for, if you recall.” 

The couch pillow that made contact with his head told him that particular piece of evidence would not be admissible in the court.
