Teddy Lupin’s hair was always Bubblegum Pink

From the first time Teddy ever saw a color photo of his mom, he’d kept it that way.
For the first couple of months after that, his whole head looked like he’d stuck it in a cotton candy machine. Some people tried to say something about it (mostly muggles who couldn’t believe someone would let their seven year old do that with their hair), Harry and Ginny ‘politely’ ignored them.
Even after he started experimenting with different colors to find something he liked and that felt like him, there was always some part of his hair (roots, tips, one whole half of his head, or even just a single little strip somewhere only really he knew about) that stayed bright pink in his mother’s memory.

(McGonagall nearly broke down in tears his seventh year when Teddy walked in sporting light brown hair. The only way you could tell it wasn’t Remus was the random bits of pink streaked everywhere.)

do you have tips for drawing cas's hair because it's giving me serious trouble :/

I’m very bad at giving drawing tips, but I tried.

So the thing with Castiel’s hair is that it comes in degrees of wildness. So depending on what season and episode you pick you will end up with something that looks well groomed up until something that looks like he just rolled out of bed.

So let’s go with this season 9, newly human look.

Hi Cas! Looking very cute!

So the first thing is of course to get something sketched.

Neat. Now back to our reference! (Bonus tip: working with references makes everything easier.) There are, in my opinion, two things to consider when drawing Castiel’s hair:

Looks alright!

Try to see the shapes in Castiel’s hair and then draw from the root to the tip. Make pretty hair grow on his head.

To maximize the fluffiness and scruffiness.

So let’s groom that handsome man. (And fix some things that look weird in the sketch.)

Here we go! 

Thank you all for helping Castiel get ready for his date! Good luck, Cas! ♥

(I’ll post the last pic individually in a moment. But I hope this as at least somewhat helpful? Let me know~)

This is dumb but like... Exactly how does one need to have the parents to get a male silver cinnamon tabby? I'm trying to work it out and it just... Ain't computing in my head for some reason

nope, its not dumb lol, silver is a bit tricky to understand at first

in order to make a cinnamon kit you need either 2 cinnamon parents, 1 cinnamon + 1 chocolate or 2 chocolate parents. 1 parent must be a tabby or torbie, and 1 paren must have the silver gene.

silver can be with any color and is a dominant trait (cannot skip a generation). it means that the hair roots are tipped white

The sun was just beginning to peek through the trees, the canopy of leaves like a blanket keeping the forest warm. Newt was stepping as softly as he could, avoiding sticks and dried leaves, to stay as undetected as possible.

Newt peeped around a wide tree trunk, his keen eyes caught a flash of violet, a jolt of excitement shot through him. Staying as quiet as he could, he crept towards the beautiful colour, staying hidden in the thicket, he realised that it wasn’t a fwooper as he had first thought, it was a girl, she had bright violet hair. As newt observed, her hair began to change from tip to root, a brilliant blue began to bleed through her hair, like a drop of ink dripped onto fresh parchment.

Out of the corner of his eye he noticed the fwooper that he was looking for, the fuchsia bird edged it’s way cautiously down the branch towards the beautiful blue of the woman’s hair, before it fluffed up its vivid feathers and gingerly stepped onto her head.

Newt was crouched down in the long grass with his mouth hanging open, never in all his years as a magizoologist had he seen anything like this. The creature seemed to accept her as one of its own. “remarkable’ he unconsciously whispered, he smacked his hand over his mouth as you slowly turned, so as not to jostle the peaceful creature too much. He had a good view of the woman’s face now, she was breath taking, the most beautiful creature he had ever seen. She had formed her hair to almost look like feathers, to keep the bird as calm as possible.

She made her way towards the source of the noise on light feet, barely making a sound, the fwooper still perched on her head. She crouched down, the tall grass the only thing separating them. She pushed the grass to one side, she was a fair bit smaller than newt, so he came face to face with the colourful bird.

A sheepish smile grew on newts lips, ‘good morning’ he mumbled as he dropped his eyes to hers before looking intently at the forest floor.

“what are you doing?’ she inquired, her voice was hushed, ‘well I suppose I was doing the same as you, the fwooper, I got word that their was an injured animal, and I was going to offer it some help’ Newt rambled, before he managed to shut himself up.  A smile broke across her pretty face as he had prattled on.

 ‘you work with magical creatures?’ she asked excitedly, newt only nodded, not trusting himself not to  bore you to death. Her smile got even wider, if that was possible, ‘I’d love to work with magical creatures, but I could never’ she shook her head, as though she was trying to dislodge the thoughts and dreams in her mind. It saddened newt, why did she think that she wasn’t good enough? “you’ve obviously got the knack’ he said gesturing to the fwooper, who was still nestled in her bright hair, ‘and the way you use your gifts, it’s ingenious, I’ve never seen anything quite like it, I’ve always been interested in metamorphagi’ Newt felt his face grow warmer at what he had just said. He dared to glance up from the ground to her lovely eyes, she was her own shade of pink, a shy smile on her lips.

Gathering all of his courage Newt asked ‘perhaps, you don’t have to of course, would you possibly like to meet some other beasts?’  


Have a great day and be safe

slowlocke  asked:

teach me about rooting plants in water!

Here are some tips for rooting cuttings indoors:

-Place cuttings in the water immediately unless they have milky sap. Let those callous in a shaded spot first.

-Keep cuttings in a shaded spot for the first day or two to let them adjust to the shock. After that, give the cutting as much bright indirect light as possible (such as by a window). The plant will need to photosynthesize to give itself energy to put out new roots. If you have a grow light at home, this works just as well!

-Cut stems at a 45° angle. There’s more surface area for the plant to take in water that way. Use the sharpest blade so your cut is clean. If a dull blade crushes the end of a stem, it can destroy its ability to take in water. Angled cuts also promote proper healing on the mother plant. A flat cut is not only harder to callous, it also makes it easier for water to pool into it and become a bacteria party.

-Try to cut close to a node, as this is where the roots will generally emerge. Leftover stem on the bottom tends to just rot.

-Different plants take different lengths of time to root out. This can range from as little as a week to a couple of months. As long at the plants aren’t rotting, you’re ok! Give them as much time as they need.

-Don’t use rooting hormone. That’s only for soil.

Love, Lust, Dirt

Part 3

Part 1 Part 2

You couldn’t recall the last time you had had to run so fast in your life. All your joints ached. The once warm air had now become frigid causing an intense sting on your skin. No matter what you or Kirk tried you couldn’t shake the beast. Its massive hammerhead flung down trees like they were twigs. Dense roots entangled the forest floor making it a miracle neither of you had fallen yet.

“What do we do?” You called out desperately. No ideas came as to how to stop this thing or lose it for that matter.

“We need to split up! It’s the only way to try and confuse it,” Kirk yelled back after a moment.

“What! Jim no way! That’s not gonna do anything we’ll – AHH!” A thick root had caught the tip of your boot. With the speed, you were running, it was a hard fall to the ground. Instinct called for the fall to be broken with your hands. As soon as you hit, a sharp crack broke out and you knew your wrist was broken. Your whole arm twinged at the slightest movement. Though the main pain wasn’t from the fracture, but several thorns embedded deep into the palm of your hand. A dark purple vine was sprawled out in front of you. It was a marvel only your hand struck it and you didn’t fall in face first.

In an age dominated by the Internet, which magnifies messages that menace faith, we must increase our exposure to spiritual truth in order to strengthen our faith and stay rooted in the gospel.
—  Dallin H. Oaks

imagine cocky little calum who had always told you “i don’t beg” lying naked in front of you, his teeth digging into his bottom lip as every muscle in his body was tense. he was tied up with no way to get loose and punish you for being a tease, but he couldn’t take it any longer, and as you ghostly slid your index finger along his length, not-so-little calum would suddenly not be all that cocky. you locked eyes with him before dragging your tongue all the way from his root to his tip, sending shivers down his spine as his hands gripped on tightly to the sheets. “baby..” he’d moan desperately, his voice low and hoarse, “baby please!” and his words would make you stop and give him a triumphant smirk. “i thought you didn’t beg, big boy” you’d taunt him, but calum was too desperate to fight it anymore, so he’d grunt and whisper “fuck me, baby girl, i’m begging you!”
