Today is a good day to remember Dr.
Joseph “Joe” Medicine Crow. Dr Crow was as American as heroes come. He was the last Warchief of the Crow Tribe having completed all 4 necessary acts of bravery. During the Second World War he disarmed an enemy without killing him, captured an enemy, led a successful war party and, needing only one more to complete the set he stole nazi officers’ horses. He’s said to have ridden the 50 horses out of the camp wearing his feathers and singing his war song and so surprised the soldiers that nobody knew what to do.
He went into battle with his eagle feathers and face painted and came home to receive a masters degree and honorary doctorate. He studied the history of The Crow Nation and was the last person to talk to someone who had been at Little Bighorn/greasy grass. He founded health and education centers for his tribe and fought for the preservation of the Grizzly bear’s habit, he called the bears his brothers. As befits a man who distinguished himself in every aspect of his life, Dr. Medicine Crow received the medal of freedom from president Obama. He passed away a year ago today.
We should all count more coup on fascists and learn more Native history and generally try to be more like Dr. Medicine Crow #native #history #nodapl
The moment Adrien learned that someone in Japan wrote a manga
about him and Ladybug, he had to have it.
In less than 48 hours, there was a copy of Miraculous Defender LadybugVolume 1 in his hands.
…Not that he could read Japanese. But he could follow along
with the Chinese scanlations and write a French translation of that on sticky notes, carefully cutting
and covering the word balloons with them.
It was worth it to see the look of absolute joy on Alya’s
face when he showed her the next day.
“Please let me take pictures for the Ladyblog, please,
please, please, PLEEEEEEASE!!!” she begged, her phone already in hand.
“Alright, alright!” Adrien said, laughing. “But only the
first chapter, okay? There’s an official version coming out next month and I
won’t ruin it for anyone else.”
“You are ruining nothing,”
Alya insisted. She gleefully flipped through the pages, Nino and Marinette both
reading over her shoulder.
Lunch in the park with his friends went much quicker with
the manga to talk about. Too soon, they were headed back to school, still stuck
on the cliffhanger.
“If Félix doesn’t kiss Ladybug in the next book, I’m going
to scream,” said Alya, manga open in her hands.
“Preach it!” said Nino. He high-fived Alya while Marinette
“I—Ladybug wouldn’t let—th-there’s probably rules or, um…”
Adrien kept quiet, ignoring his growing blush. ‘Félix’ was
Chat’s secret identity in the manga; Ladybug saved him from muggers and the
volume ended with Félix determined to give her a thank-you kiss.
Félix was a very
different person, but…
“You’ve been quiet, bro. What do you think?” Nino asked.
“I think I would kiss her,” Adrien answered absently, not
realizing he’d fumbled his pronouns until Marinette walked into a pole.
Hobgoblins! Like goblins, only…hobbier? Or rather, they’re bigger and stronger and…more orange than regular goblins. And I hear they’re highly militarized in structure. But only the parts of the military that make them more evil. Let’s take a gander, then!
The Musketeers started 3 years ago, on january 19th, 2014. With Santiago Cabrera, Howard Charles, Luke Pasqualino, Tom Burke, Maimie McCoy, Alexandra Dowling, Tamla Kari,

Wherever we draw breath, make a stand, save a life, that is the garrison, we are the garrison. ALL FOR ONE & ONE FOR ALL!
Obi-wan stared down the blade of the lightsaber at his oldest enemy. He looked it. Maul’s patterned skin was worn and weathered, the deep, terrifying blacks and reds muted by age and washed-out by the bright blue light.
He certainly didn’t look the terror he had been on Naboo.
You may remember the post chimera Lao AU stuff that I’ve done before. Well, I imagined that he would have a tuft of feathers left over from the chimera stuff. It would be a neat(?) visual detail to indicate the AU. There’s another that I want to explore at a later date though.
