pet ban

I’ve successfully sat down to write SIXTY days in a row! Slowly but surely writing my novel. The Scrivener App on my iPad makes such a difference, and the word tracker is both helpful and aesthetically pleasing. 

When I was in high school we had a really weird fad that got way out of hand. Some kid had found out how to tie tiny strings to the legs of flies so he could carry it around and keep it as a pet. Teachers couldn’t really do anything about it since it was just a fly, y’know. They aren’t so uncommon in schools. Anyway, he started teaching more kids how to do it and it caught on.

Soon every kid in the school had pet flies tied to strings. They’d even get like multiple flies and carry them around like fly balloons. Even some teachers were getting in on it. Personally, I never got into it but I didn’t have the dexterity needed to do something precise as tying a string around a fly’s leg. No one would help me with it either. I was introvert and weirdo with no friends. I still am.

Things started to fall apart when state testing came around and the sound of constant buzzing became way more aggravating to everyone. There was also the problem of flies dying and the floors being covered in dead fly bodies. Like, despite having them as pets people still didn’t like touching flies with their bare hands. When the flies died they just left them on the floors, seats, and desks or whatever. It wasn’t uncommon to sit in a seat just covered in dead flies. You get used to having fly corpses, and fly juice on your butt after a while.

Even though fly pets were eventually banned (and hefty punishments were thrown out for anyone caught with pet flies), there was still a large amount of flies left in the school. The school had basically become a breeding ground for flies. Lunch was inedible because of all the maggots. They’d even be dripping from the ceilings and stuff. They had to shut down school for at least a month to get the exterminators to purge the place. It wasn’t that effective. There were just so many maggots in every nook and cranny of the school that no amount of exterminators could effectively purge the place without completely knocking down the school.

So, the principal decided to release a modest of amount of spiders into the school to eat all of the flies and maggots. Long story short, it didn’t work. They just managed to create a weird fly-spider based ecosystem in the school. The school had to reopen eventually, and everyone just got used to all of the flies and spiders. The cafeteria had to be moved to a nearby building since the school’s cafeteria had become so infested with spiders and maggots that it had to be locked off.

I moved away at the beginning of my senior year. It was weird adjusting to a school that wasn’t filled with bugs, but I made some cool friends there. My old high school burned down. No one was hurt, but arson wasn’t ruled out. It burned so long and so hard that the land on it had basically become scorched hell. They rebuilt the school elsewhere. They say that if you go to the old school’s location on a dark night, you can see a weird man walking around with tons of ghostly flies tied to his fingers. They say that you can hear them screaming for mercy. That’s probably not true, though.

The adorable Ban-Fu is all done!

I really didn’t expect to finish him so soon, with all the felting that he requires, but it’s always good news when this happens! He was the partner to Blue Twilight, and is already on his way to his new home in New Jersey!

I’ll also be announcing the listing day for the remaining 2 Twilights shortly, so stay tuned!

What do you all think of this adorable Monk kitty 😄

From the very first time you met him, Wonwoo had held a special place in your heart. There was something captivating, something inviting and something very familiar about him that really appealed to you, and not once did say or do anything that had your heart faltering - quite the opposite, really.

The first time you met, you had raised your eyebrows upon seeing a man randomly crouched in the middle of the street, which wasn’t exactly your everyday sight. When you walked closer, however, you could see that he was playing with a kitten, a small smile on his face as the small cat meowed and tried to reach for his hand.

“Is it yours?” you had found yourself asking him, and the man had turned to look at you in surprise, still smiling, and you had taken note of how you could’ve sworn you’d seen him before.

“No, I just found it from the street. But I’m contemplating…” his voice had trailed off as he had turned back to the kitten, giving it his hand to lean against, which it did while closing its eyes. The man’s smile softened. “I don’t want to leave it here. It won’t live long if I do.”

Pangur Bán

A breed of Kneazle found uniquely in Ireland, Pangur Báns are known for being mischievous and incredibly adept hunters and are especially known for preferring quiet homes to live in - in history, the original Pangur Bán for whom the breed is named and were bred from, lived in an Abbey, and many of the modern cats likewise prefer quiet places, be they of worship or otherwise. Thus, Pangur Báns are most commonly found in various of Ireland’s magical churches.

Pangur Báns are quite affectionate cats, once they’ve hunted, but do not like those who talk too much, instead preferring those who are very quiet. Likewise  Pangur Báns are known for being nearly mute, with only kittens mewling or meowing at all - as adults, the most noise they will make is a purr, rarely even snarling or hissing.

“That’s the problem. We let people say stuff, and they say it so much that it becomes okay to them and normal for us. What’s the point of having a voice if you’re gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn’t be?”

Finally got the monk pet, Ban-fu!  This whole time I thought I had to be exalted with Legionfall to get it… didn’t realize it only had to be revered lol so I could have gotten this weeks sooner, but my monk items are complete!  Time to work on the other paladin mount colors now and get my priest mount.

In terms of service animals, ESA's (emotional service animals) they are not the same correct? They require no trianing from what im told. They can not go the same places service animals can right? Thank you!

ESAs are not legally considered service animals and do not get public access rights, correct. They’re not trained but with a medical prescription can be allowed in pet-banned housing. Service dogs are trained to do a specific task; ESAs just exist.

Koda’s Rabbit HC

he is a cutie and I want to know more about him and his bun bun

  • Koda got a rabbit thanks to a suggestion from a family friend who noticed how shy he was in Middle School
  • The bunny’s name is Yuki!
  • “Practice talking to her Koji-kun you’ll see its not too bad! she is also good for pats”
  • Koda spends more time giving pats than talking but that’s okay!
  • While verbal speech is still a work in progress Yuki has helped mitigate some of his shyness. before going out he used to run down what he was going to do with friends to her and pet her gently. it helped calm him down before leaving.
  • it was a good habit he formed in middle school that got him outside more often
  • He rarely uses his quirk on Yuki. Only if she’s in a dangerous place in the room or he’s been searching for hours and he has to call her to come to him because Yuki i checked behind the couch five times how did you end up back their without me noticing??
  • Koda and his Mom got the bunny registered as a service animal so when Koda wants to move out he can take Yuki and not be hindered by a pets ban or something like that.
  • officially Yuki is registered as a type of Emotional Support Animal that helps to keep stress levels low and improve his confidence.
  • This helped a lot in getting the approval to bring Yuki to the UA dorms
  • At first Koda kept her in his room all day and night because he was afraid with all these quirks and passionate personalities (aka Bakugou) she’d might get hurt
  • But with a combination of the girls begging, reassurances that they’d be careful and a growing confidence in his classmates Koda brought Yuki to the common room
  • Yuki kind of just hopped around sniffing hands and accepting pets. 
  • Momo is memorized by how soft her fur is. Like she’s slept on silk and goose feathered pillows but nothing compares to this ball of fluff
  • Yuki kind of nudges one of Izuku’s scars and than rests her head on it. he laughs before petting her on the head with his other hand.
  • Todoroki strokes two fingers from head to back and with each pass a smile grows softly on his face
  • Yuki approaches Bakugou and Koda starts screaming internally.
  • Bakugou turns from tutoring Kirishima and Sero to look at this white fluffy thing nudging his fingers
  • He sighs before turning his hand for her to scent his palm then starts petting her with a bit more force than necessary.
  • Kiri and Sero are shook. by not only being the only ones to witness the act but also realizing that no one will believe them
  • Koda shuffles over to their circle and Bakugou pushes the rabbit in his direction muttering that Yuki now knows the smell of a number 1 hero.
  • Koda decides if Yuki can be around Bakugou than he must not be too bad
  • If someone looks like their having a bad day or a big test is coming up Koda will kind of walk Yuki and place her into his classmate’s lap
  • it’s incentive for him to interact with his classmates more and seeing that he accomplished to help them in some way makes him pretty happy
  • Tokoyami asked Koda why he doesn’t use his quirk on Yuki more
  • He signs an immediate response:
  • My quirk is suppose to save and help people. I don’t need to tell Yuki what to do. She helps me by just being herself.
