rainbow form

This incredible shot of a rainbow that formed in the spray of a waterfall was captured by a young photographer, Justin Lee. The picture was taken in California’s Yosemite National Park.

A trip to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming isn’t complete without viewing the majestic Lower Falls. When visiting the park in 2012, Stuart Burnett and his wife Patti captured this shot of Lower Falls legendary rainbow thanks to detailed research and planning. Of the experience, Stuart says, “You could hear the gasp from the other viewers as the rainbow formed. It was just magnificent!! It lasted for about 10 minutes … 10 minutes that I will never forget!!” Photo courtesy of Stuart Burnett. 🌈

Unlike the Muks in Kanto, Alolan form Muk is strikingly colorful. Alolan Muk looks like a colorful oil slick. Soap, petrol, grease, and other oily substances often look like colorful rainbows. But why? 

Oil is both reflective and refractive of light. When light hits it, some of the light bounces off the surface and directly to your eye. The rest of the light passes through the oil, and then bounces off of whatever surface is beneath the oil (water, the road, Muk’s body) before going to your eye. Passing through the oil bends the light a little bit. It’s a lot easier to walk through air than through water: you move slower when you’re in a swimming pool. Light is the same way, it slows down in water and oil, which causes it to bend.

Because of this effect, you can think of it as one beam of light going to the oil, and two beams of light coming off of it: one from the surface reflection, and the one that passed through the oil.

We don’t see two different beams leaving the oil, of course: the two beams combine together to create a new light beam altogether, through interference. Interference can make light stronger or weaker, depending on how the waves add together.

White light, of course, actually contains all of the colors of the rainbow. When light refracts and reflects off of the oil, different colors are going to combine through interference. Depending on the depth of the oil slick in different places, red might combine with red to create a really strong red, and so on. This constructive interference creates the rainbows in oil.

This is how Alolan Muk is so colorful: the outside of its body is coated in a layer of fatty oil, which interacts with the light in this way to make it colorful.

Alolan Muk’s body is covered in a layer of fatty oil. Some light reflects off of the oil, and some light passes through it, causing constructive interference that appears as a rainbow.

Request:  Can you do a littlest winchester where she meets cas for the first time and can see his wings/ true form?

Fic:

           “Daddy, Cass is glowing again.” Dean’s four-year-old daughter speaks quietly and points at the angel.

           “Is he? Can you see his wings, too?” He picks up the little girl.

           She nods and rests her head on his collarbone, eyes trained on Castiel.

           “Remember what I said that was?”

           “His true form.”

           “Exactly. Does it still scare you?”

           The little girl shrugs.

Today I slipped and as I was falling
I reached for a snake
I thought was a root

And oh yeah, I was falling
because I was trying to escape
What my dog was vomiting
(The leftovers from the coyotes’ dinner last night)

And somehow
Lying on my back
I saw a rainbow 
Form an entire circle
Around the sun
(For about 45 seconds
Before the clouds moved on)

This poetry’s so bad
It’s no even metaphorical
(It’s just me telling you
About my day)

But you know
Now that you mention it
Something about
The whole ordeal

It did kind of remind me
A little of you

It doesn't really matter, really.(Draco Malfoy Request)

Pairing: Draco X Reader

Warnings: FLUFFY AF , and lengthy

(Y/BD) = your birthdate
(Y/H) = your house
——————————–

You awoke to the sound of rain tapping against the glass of your window. There was obviously a storm.

And it was your birthday.

Not that you minded though, you loved the rain.

There was always something soothing about the rain. It calmed you down, and it was the perfect excuse to stay in bed.

But you had class.

Which meant you aren’t going to stay in bed and you most definitely weren’t going to have the best birthday.

This was the 6th time you’d spend your birthday at Hogwarts, and you were surprised you hadn’t gotten used to it yet.

You put on your robes and pack your bag before leaving the (Y/H) girls dormitory.

——————————

You were now in Potions, helping your boyfriend, Draco, not fail you guys and helping him make the Draught of Peace without spilling everything.

It was still raining, not that you minded.

Actually, a lot of other people were bothered by the fact it was raining, on your birthday. Everyone basically just apologized for the rain and kept saying that your birthday would’ve been better if it was sunny.

You couldn’t help but reply with a,

“It doesn’t really matter, really.”

Heck, even professor Trelawney called you unlucky and unpleasant because of her predictions of having rain on your birthday.

But you liked it.

You didn’t understand why everyone was making bug fuss out of it.

“Happy Birthday (Y/N)!”, you heard hollers and shouts from behind you on your way to your dorm.

You turn around to see Harry, Hermione, Ron, Fred, George, Dean, Ginny, and Seamus.

I know, they aren’t exactly Draco’s crowd, but Draco didn’t own you, and he completely respected you and your friends, even if he could be a bit nasty at times.

“Hey guys!”, you say excitedly and pull them in for a group hug.

“We have something - well things - for you!”, Ron says excitedly.

He runs off and comes back with 10 presents in his arms, barely able to carry them all, and clearly struggling.

“What’re you guys doing? Go and help the lad!”, you giggle.

Dean and Seamus rush to help Ron.

“Nah.”, says the twins.

Everyone giggles and smiles at each other.

“Hey (Y/N), it must be pretty awful having rain on your birthday isn’t it?”, Hermione questions, patting your back.

“It actually isn’t a big deal. I like it.”, you share whilst giving everyone in the circle a reassuring smile, noticing that everyone in the circle was giving you sympathetic looks.

Everyone except Harry.

“You and me both (Y/N).”, Harry smiles and high fives you.

*cough*

You turn around and see Draco, leaning against the wall and smirking at you.

You smile at him and he starts walking over.

He was holding a wrapped, rectangular box with penguin wrapping paper.

“Happy birthday babe.”, he says and you kiss.

Your friends make vomiting noises behind you guys whilst you kiss Draco.

“Oh shut it would ya?”, Draco sneers at your friends and you give him a disappointed look, “Ok,um sorry, just stop I guess.”, he blushes whilst scratching his neck.

The whole group bursts in to fits of laughter, even Draco.

“Hey, what about this, you guys go change into warm and more comfortable clothes and I’ll see you guys at the Astronomy Tower, we’ll open the presents together.”, you say whilst smiling at your friends, excited for tonight.

————————————

You’re now at the Astronomy Tower and you’re surrounded by your friends.

Dean and Ginny re cuddling, Harry, who is not too far away, is looking at the couple sadly, Hermione and Ron were bickering on which constellation is which, Fred and George were chasing your chocolate frogs, which were given to you by Seamus, who had gone to bed.

Draco was sending an owl to Narcissa and humming to himself in a corner.

You decide to go to Harry and ask him if he’s okay.

“You alright?”, you say to him whilst leaning your head on his shoulder.

This random act was not weird at all. You had met Harry on Platform 9 ¾ and you figured it out together with the help of Mrs. Weasley. You were like a sister to him, and he was like a brother to you. You looked out for each other and were sometimes very protective over each other.

Draco didn’t really like how close you ere, but he understood after knowing your family status.

You were a middle child. And no matter how hard you tried to make your parents notice you, it just didn’t work out. Your sister wasn’t much help either. Your little brother tried but he didn’t really understand. You couldn’t blame him though, he was still much too young.

That’s why when you realized you were actually friends with The Boy Who Lived, you were beyond shocked.

You were shook.

You had always imagined your sister hanging out with his kind, you know popular, kind and most importantly, he mattered.

All your life you were told you mattered, but you never really felt it.

And you were grateful that this cruel world gave you Harry.

“Well, you know I like her, and she’s doing all this with him, and I kinda wanna be mad at her for doing this to me, but then I realized that she doesn’t even know my feelings for her, and I just feel stupid for letting myself feel this way.”, he rambles and puts his head in his hands.

“Hey, Harry, it’s alright. Just try to think of something else.”

“But I can’t. You of all people should know that.”

“Please. For me?”, you say whilst giggling.

“Hmphf, fine.”, he says ,pulling you in for a hug.

“Now, go help Fred and George catch the chocolate frogs. You can have one if you’d like.”, you say after pulling away from the hug, whilst kissing him on the cheek.

He grumbles a bit then leaves to go help.

You stare at the haul in front of you.

A silver necklace with a unicorn charm on it from Ginny, five bottles of Butterbeer from Dean, two chocolate frogs that were running up and down the walls that were being chased by Fred, George and Harry from Seamus who had gone to bed, a Patented DayDream Charm from Fred and George, a notebook and a quill and ink from Hermione, a small cupcake from Ron, a sunflower pin from Luna, and a pair of rainbow fuzzy socks form Neville.

You had yet to open Draco’s gift.

“Hey, open mine.”, Draco says getting next to you.

You open it to find a whole case of pins! With enough storage left for your other pins.

Okay, you kind had an obsession over pins. You would have them on your robes all the time and on your bag.

You gasped in awe, moving your finger over the 25 pins.

There was a frog with a crown on it., a moon with stars, a rainbow, a snake (this definitely described Draco), a (Y/H) crest, a palm tree and many others.

“Draco, it’s perfect!”, you say putting it away and kissing him all over this face.

“Haha only the best for the most perfect girl.”, he says whilst kiss you on the lips.

“Thank you.”

You cuddle and stare at the rain, that came out of nowhere.

Ron and Hermione were no longer bickering over the constellations, but were now playing a game of wizard’s chess. Even though Hermione was absolutely terrible.

Harry and the twins were now talking about quidditch whilst eating the chocolate frogs, you didn’t mind them eating them, they deserved it after catching them.

“I’m sorry for the rain, babe.”, he says, wrapping an arm around you.

“Aw, don’t apologize over something you don’t have any control over. And besides, it doesn’t really matter, really.

You both laid there, giggling here and there at your friends’ antics.

This birthday was truly magical.

Even if it did rain.

But that didn’t really matter, really.

Not smiling was proving to be harder than he had originally thought.

Climbing up the steep, grassy incline, the ground slippery underneath his feet, heading towards the small camp they had set up at the base of the hill, Sidon tried to focus on anything other than the small Hylian on his back. This was proving to be a challenge as the slightest glance to his right allowed him a full view of his little Hylian’s face, which just strengthened the urge to beam idiotically.
