Jaal’s words echoed through Saskia’s mind as they ran after the Cardinal. Mind splintered, shattered, with the horror that every kett she’d seen her team bring down, every single one, had once been an angara, torn from their family. Had once been a sister, or brother, or aunt, or cousin. Taken. Twisted.
Her motions blurred together as they fought to the Moshae. She disabled shields, sent waves of errant energy into the kett to distract and destabilize. Pistol in her loose left grip, shots fired wide. Echo and crack, feet pounding on pavement. She was a spectator, watching herself move—dodge right, duck behind cover, fingers slipping over the handle of her gun. She nearly fell off a platform once, before Vetra pulled her back. When Saskia turned, she froze at the look in the turian’s eyes.
Wide, frantic, fighting the swell of revulsion that surged behind them. She reloaded her gun without a word, charged back into the fray, one long leg bounding after the other.
Move. Move, her voice in Saskia’s ear as she followed her instinctively. She could do nothing else. She could do nothing.

G: Tutorials. That boi will help you do almost anything
B: Need homework help? Don’t know why the sky is blue? How to hide a body? Blues your guy.
Alex tugged on her hand and stared at her with big eyes. Eliza could feel her resolve crumbling slightly.
“But the snakes creep me out.” Eliza scrunched up her face. Ever since she was young she would rescue animals from her backyard and try to help them, except snakes had always given her a bad feeling.
“I just want to see them for one minute. We just need to go in for one minute.” Alex begged. “Please?”
He looked so cute begging. Eliza knew that she was going to agree. It was too hard to turn him down.
“I’ll hold your hand the whole time?” Alex offered, a hopeful smile on his face.
“I think I’ll need a little more than hand holding. What else do you have?” A mischievous smile lit up Eliza’s face.
“A kiss?” Alex lifted an eyebrow.
Eliza thought for a moment and shook her head.
“I’ll buy you ice cream.”
“Alright.” Eliza agreed. A grin spread across Alex’s face and without any hesitation he leaned forwards and pecked her lips.
“That was not a kiss!” Eliza exclaimed. Alex grinned as she pouted like a kid that didn’t get their way.
“Fine.” Alex complied, he carefully leaned forwards and pressed his lips against hers. Eliza smiled against his lips and responded to the kiss. She moved her lips against his and slipped her fingers into his hair. He made a little sound in the back of his throat as her fingers tangled in his hair.
“Get a room!” a voice yelled.
Alex and Eliza jumped apart. Eliza’s cheeks burned red. Alex turned red as well, Eliza couldn’t help but giggle at how embarrassed he looked.
“Let’s go.” Alex sheepishly said, holding out his hand for her to take.
Eliza took his hand with a smile and lead the way towards the reptile house. Their feet slapped against the concrete in tandem as they walked.
She slowed their pace as they approached the reptile house. Alex sent her a reassuring look and slightly tightened his hold on Eliza’s hand.
The air conditioning of the reptile house blew against Eliza’s bare skin causing the hairs on the back of her neck to stand on end. The room was covered in pictures of the reptiles and fun facts about the animals.
“See anything scary?” Alex leaned down and whispered into her ear.
“Just this creepy guy holding my hand.” Eliza said playfully as she swung their hands forwards.
Alex chuckled and pressed his lips against her cheek.
“Let’s go see the snakes.” Alex pulled her forwards slightly in search of the snakes, while Eliza reluctantly followed him. They weaved through the small crowd of people until they were standing in front of a sign that said ‘python’ in curvy green letters.
Eliza took a deep breath and looked a little closer through the glass. She jumped back as she saw movement. As soon as the snake came into sight Eliza swore under her breath and tucked herself a little closer to Alex.
“You’re so gonna owe me.” Eliza murmured.
Alex chuckled and pressed his lips against her forehead.
You woke up the next morning with a headache that threatened to split your brain in two. You cursed yourself for having so much damn alcohol. What happened to only one? From under the pile of covers, your hand snaked out, searching for your phone to check the time. 5:00. Hungover and you still couldn’t sleep in. You sat up and rubbed the sleep from your eyes before deciding to slip into the shower. You reeked.
Standing in the warmth, soaping up your hair, the events from the night before hit you like a trainwreck. You gasped, asperating droplets of water and half choking to death. “Oh shit. Oh shit. What am I going to do?” The bar of soap didn’t seem to have any good answers. How could you have forgotten so easily, insulting the Avengers like that? Insulting Steve, of all people. You rinsed yourself down and climbed out, wrapping a towel around yourself before settling down in your armchair to think.
Did I need a header for this? No. Did I make one anyway? Yes. haha
Anyway this is a walkthrough of how I usually draw and colour my drawings. There’s pictures and then me explaining in text what it is I’m doing (it got very long, sorry). If you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask! :)
I’m so emotional I teared up because I accidentally deleted the screenshot I took at midnight last night with the Google search: How do snakes have sex
I feel like I should explain. Me and my few friends who were still awake were playing cards against humanity at midnight. And the instructions actually say you should discuss why you chose certain cards, and of course, we chose to play by those rules. We had some strange conversations oml.
Anyway, I played the card “flying sex snakes” for “why didn’t I do my homework”.
So I ended up explaining snake sex, but in the sense they are flying in the air, which would obviously stop you from doing your homework
A/N: This really struck a cord with me writing this because, unfortunately, Flo has paid her monthly visit to me (and a lot of people I know). The request asked for a one shot, but this is more of a drabble. I’m sorry it’s so short. Between cramps and battling this chest cold, I just want my bed. I hope you enjoy it! As always like, reblog, follow, and send me your feedback. I love you all.
PS - this goes out to all my girls battling the cramps from hell, and just need some Dean fluff in your day. xo
Based on a request by Anon: Could you please write a cute, fluff filled one shot where Dean looks after reader when she has really painful period cramps and can hardly do anything except lay around reading or playing video games?
You had been so irritable with Dean this past week, snapping at him for the dumbest things. He took it in stride, knowing that your time of the month was coming. When you’d yell at him for not putting the seat down, or accidentally leaving a dirty dish in the sink, he’d respond with a “Sorry, babe.” and not push your buttons any further. You had struck gold with this man and you knew that, but sometimes your hormones would get the better of you. You dreaded this time of the month every month. Horrible cramps would riddle you almost motionless, only wanting your bed, ice cream, and your heating pad.
A sidewinder rattlesnake is training a robot how to turn and navigate tight corners.
The work, by researchers at Georgia Tech, Zoo Atlanta and Carnegie Mellon, continues efforts to both understand the biomechanics of the organism and to improve movements in limbless robots.
During studies of the real snake, the team realized that sidewinders control their movement through soft sand by undulating in horizontal and vertical body waves.
The animals are very maneuverable by using these waves independently. Along with forward propulsion, modulating the two waves allows them to make shallow changes to their direction of travel, which the team calls differential turning. Sidewinders can also perform sharp reversal turns by altering their two body waves. Learn more below.
