newtons rings

A strange landscape with an even stranger sky.

This is a microscope view of the edge of a smooth chunk of silicon, coated with a thin clear plasticy layer of photoresist.  Just like the colors in a soap bubble, this colorless thin layer produces rainbow colors due to the wave nature of light.  Waves of light reflecting off the top and bottom of the film interfere with each other and add to each other’s brightness, or cancel each other out, depending on the film’s thickness. Since each color of light corresponds to a wave of different size, at different film thicknesses you get different colors of light disappearing from the spectrum as they cancel each other out.

The film above has areas where the surface is relatively smooth (areas with very widely spaced bands of color).  Where the film mounds up near its edges or near the black dust specks, the colors change rapidly along with the film’s thickness. Nonuniform films like these are usually used just to protect a material’s surface between fabrication steps.  To use the film for material processing, the nonuniformities - and with them the rainbow colors - would need to be removed.

What did I do

Short Imagines because im a sad gay right now. Its gonna be a Newt ignores you to protect you imagine


Newt POV

I rush pass y/n to leave the apartment. I glance and see a sad look on their face. It pains me to look, I want to turn around. I want to go up and hug them. Say im sorry. But i keep walking. 

“Its for their own good” I murmur to myself. 

I stay out the whole day, getting things for my creatures and spending some time in Central park. When night falls, I make my way back to the apartment. I’m greeted with a glare from Jacob. Y/N and Jacob are great friends. Of course Jacob would be cross with me. Queenie pulls me aside with an even more cross look. 

“Mr. Scamander you better have an excellent reason for why you have been making y/n so upset” I ponder for a moment. Letting my thoughts tell queenie. Her face softens. 

“Oh honey…Im sure you don’t have to worry about that" 

"I dont know queenie” She’s about to answer when Tina and Y/n walk in. 

I see Y/n’s eyes are puffy. Guilt washes over me and I look away. Queenie goes over to talk to Tina leaving me and Y/n alone. Tension fills the room. 

“Newt. why do you hate me, what did I do?”. Their voice cracks as they speak. 

“Nothing.” My voice wavers and y/n gives me a look. 

“Clearly I did something Newt, you haven’t spoken to me in a month. We were so close, We talked about everything. Why, what did I do” Desperation fills their voice. 

“Its nothing, Tell Queenie and Tina im going down in my case” I start walking to the bedroom when y/n’s voice rings out 

“NEWTON SCAMANDER. YOU ARE GOING TO SIT DOWN AND TELL ME WHAT THE HELL I DID. WE’VE BEEN FRIENDS FOR YEARS NEWT. DOESNT THAT MEAN ANYTHING. ” Tears are streaming down their face. 

“IM TRYING TO PROTECT YOU Y/N! THE LAST TIME YOU WENT WITH ME TO FIND A CREATURE YOU ALMOST DIED. AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MY FAULT. I LOVE YOU TOO MUCH TO LET THIS HAPPEN.” Tears are coming from both our eyes. 

“Newt…T-these creatures, they dont scare me. I want to stay and help you I want-” y/n starts. 

“Your not the right person for this job y/n.” I say harshly. 

“Newt your dont mean that, Right?” Y/n’s heart is breaking. I can feel it. but im doing this to protect them. 

“I do, I-I work better alone.” I pause as silence fills the room again. Its a painful silence. 

“I’m leaving.” I say almost a whisper 

“Im sorry. Im going back to London tomorrow. I was going to say something tonight.” I turn to Jacob, Tina, and Queenie who were watching at the door. 

“Im sorry i didnt say something sooner. I believe its best I stay somewhere else tonight. I’ve had a wonderful time here but I think its best for me to go now. Goodbye.”
The tears are coming from my eyes lessen and I grab my things, Say a goodbye to everyone. and walk out the door. Away from New York, Away from my friends. Away from Y/N.


What did i do to make them stop talking to me. I thought they cared. They talked me out of dying once and I talked them out of dying too. I love her…What did I do

I offered to be @puppun‘s pinch-hitter for the @pacrimholidayswap…because their original gifter disappeared into the void?? I’m sorry you had to wait so long to receive your gift!

The prompt was “sharing”- so…sharing a coat, sharing a view, (sharing a future together?! Newt what’s in your hand?!!) 

watercolors! :>

I want to know how it feels to caress your jaw bone with my lips and
Draw you in by my finger tips..

I want you so completely,
but I want you half
So I can be the other part you’ve been needing

Let me be the anchor to hold you fast and keep your demons at bay
just let me lay in your dreams, allow me to stay.

I feel like Athena
Born out of your head
Like the womb I was woven together in is your subconscious
and we all go home in the end

I want you to be mine

I want to be a little nesting doll
Nestled beneath your body
On top of the world
And I’ll tell God you said hey

Because Heaven is so close
When you touch me
Causing all four seasons to rage through me like a flash

Repeatedly

Your sweat is like August rain and You break me like golden leaves fall Cover me like snow and
Rejuvenate my brittle pieces because April showers bring May flowers but

I really wish you were on the Mayflower all that time ago
Continental drift is an understatement for how I feel so far from you

But I know better
And I know that with summer comes time to pass and
The leaves of gold will fall into a gold band on my hand

And

Winter snow has nothing
On your ability stick around
And one time someone told me that “no man is worth your tears and the one who is will never make you cry”
I thought he was silly but I haven’t seen an April shower in my eye since before you

As long as we’re spitting quotes
I think I’ll throw Newton into the ring
Who said that for every action there is an equal or greater reaction
And if I’m reacting
The way you’re reacting
And if I love you bold
Like you love me bold

Then when boldness meets the shore we will crash upon each other
As if to echo our battle cries
Making our throats scream sore
Like ocean waves we need each other to build us up from the ocean’s floor

—  I feel like I use “and” too much but it just feels right when its about me *and* you
