“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.” -Martha Graham
Kaiba thinks his dragons are better than Yami’s dragons. They aren’t allowed to play with each other :( The Blue Eyes fam is really curious though.
In a world where Yami missed the boat to spirit land (more like something went wrong but nvm) and he gets his own body I would imagine he would try to separate his and Yugi’s identities. I feel that he’d be a bit more conservative than Yugi and also wouldn’t wear a billion belts. more on this when I finish something just for this topic. Main point is for this picture, i couldn’t deside weather he looked better with or not so here’s both versions
Could you point out the differences between a kangal, malakli and anatolian shepherd?
ah yes, the subtleties of the fawn-with-mask-turkish-livestock-dog-things!
ill use turkish line dogs so you can see really what the breed differences are traditionally, instead of western/euro examples of the breed which are different than middle eastern “true” shepherds
so, its like a dog thermometer but with aggression and size
turkish-line anatolian shepherd! not huge, on the lankier side of the spectrum while still being strong and sturdy. pretty much exclusively used as livestock dogs and dont do anything in fighting, although they can also be companions.
getting bigger now! kangals are a little more aggressive, a little wilder, per say. very territorial, suspicious, blah blah blah. used in fighting, but still also used as livestock dogs!
now we’ve got the big guns! malakli are the largest of the turkish shepherds, very aggressive animals and were actually bred from kangals (most say they were mixed with big mastiffs and other fighting dogs, though the exact origin to my understanding is unknown). they are pretty exclusively used for dog fights, dont do any livestock work, and tend to be the most mastiffy in appearance and often have the wrinkly faces.
now ill be totally honest, malakli and kangals often look very similar, and less “typey” examples of each breed are hard to tell apart, particularly since malakli have kangal roots anyway. likewise, a lot of kangals, especially the thinner ones, look a lot like anatolians because those breeds are also related. so really what im trying to say is that all the turkish breeds are kind of a hot mess of within themselves and they all sort of look similar and have very mixed purposes and are, quite honestly, probably still interbred with one another. the line where one ends is vague and malleable; landraces are not distinct “breeds” the way modern kennel club dogs are, and while the differences do definitely exist they are subtle and alien comparatively to how clubs view dogs.
The Evolution and Adaptation of Witchcraft in the Modern World.
I keep seeing people bitching and being gatekeepers about pop culture witchcraft but here’s the thing, in order for something to survive it must adapt and that’s what witchcraft is doing, it’s adapting to fit our modern times. And I’m not saying the old ways aren’t valid anymore because they still are but the craft is evolving because in order to survive and keep going it needs to.
If you practice the old ways, that’s cool, you do you. If you are using the modern adaptation of witchcraft, cool. If you’re doing both, fantastic! But don’t discredit shit because it doesn’t follow your path or it isn’t “the traditional way!” It’s also toxic as fuck to tell someone to do the path of witchcraft you want them to do because that’s being a controlling, manipulative asshole.
Hell, if technology didn’t advance those people wouldn’t be able to make a tumblr rant about modern witchcraft.
Witchcraft evolves to survive like everything else but it can still keep its old elements. And I won’t be arguing with anyone about this because I’ve made my point and if you can’t see my side then you’re not worth the time.
Les Misérables & colours (8/?): Marius Pontmercy + rose
Rose as a softer, paler shade of pink is the colour of both giving and the receiving of love and understanding. It is a romantic and thoughtful colour that shows tenderness and kindness with its empathy and sensitivity.
