Dorky Otp Prompts

‘I caught you dramatically singing to your cat that laid on you stomach and it was honestly the cutest thing I’ve ever seen’

‘I saw you rollerskating and I thought ‘that person is cool’ but then you crashed jesus are you okay’

’I found you in the kitchen at 3 AM taking apart our cabinets with a crazed look in your eye ‘cause apparently you thought you heard a mouse are you insane what was tHAT’

‘You made a ‘pun jar’ it’s like a swear jar except every time i make a bad pun i have to put in a dollar looks like we almost have enough for a new aPUNment-fine ill put another one in’

‘I work at a pet shop and everyday you come in on your way to work and pet every single animal here you are the purest soul™ I’m so in love’

'Me and my friends are such memey shits and they made me send you one of those 'send your crush without context’ thing problem is you don’t use the internet much and don’t understand and I’m so embarrassed’

'Our parents work for rival companies and they don’t know we’re friends well my dad pissed me off the other night wanna pretend we’re dating and do like cute stuff in front of him to get on his nerve?’

'We’re at a karaoke bar and you went up as a joke but the lights are hitting you so perfectly and your voice is so angelic and wow I think I’m in love.’

'You had this giant ass ice cream but you were so excited that you dropped it and I’ve never seen a sadder person in my life please let me just buy you a new one’

'We keep awkwardly running into each other and people have started to ship us and I kinda like you ahaha oh god I need to stop blushing’

man, sometimes i get really teary-eyed when i think about how deeply raava must understand the scope of human life, the value and the wonder of it

like. she literally experienced every single moment of every single one of the avatar’s lifetimes, she knew all of their flaws and insecurities and fears

but she also knew all of their strengths, their hopes, their kindnesses

and she felt each of them go through everything

every single loss (ummi’s death, sozin’s betrayal, the air nomad genocide), every single bright spot (defeating chin the conquerer, meeting katara, winning a pro-bending match)

every single person and animal and spirit that the avatar has ever met

every single feeling of loneliness and fear and hope and love

raava understands how it is to be male and female and everything in between

she understands how it is to be born as a member of the aristocracy, as a street rat, as a country bumpkin

she understands how it is to grow up in the fire nation, the earth kingdom, the water tribes, the air temples

she understands how it is to be five years old, and ten and twenty and fifty, a hundred times over

and with each lifetime she sinks deeper and deeper into the avatar’s soul, like a tree digging its roots into the soil, over thousands of years and hundreds of lifetimes

raava has felt all of it, seen all of it, been all of it, she’s so completely in tune with the human experience i can’t believe how much i love the concept of her

this great spirit, who used to be so disdainful of human, of humanity– coming down from her mountain and learning miracle of human life, how it’s infinitesimally large and infinitesimally small at the same time, the range of its variety

each of the avatars lead beautiful, terrible, fulfilled lives by themselves, but raava is like the thread that connects a string of pearls; she makes them more than the sum of their parts.

the holidays are coming up, and as someone who works in a pet store there are some things i want everyone who plans on getting animals as gifts to remember:

  • fish tanks need to be set up and running for at least one week before fish can be put it. all fish need treated water and bacteria supplements.
  • fish can only survive in a plastic bag for about an hour.
  • THE ONLY fish that can go in a bowl is a BETTA. all other fish, especially goldfish, will die/be very unhealthy in bowls.
  • goldfish are supposed to live for up to 20 years. don’t get all high and mighty for keeping one alive for a few months. they have long life spans when taken proper care of.
  • hamsters cannot live together. when they grow up, they become incredibly territorial and aggressive. they are asocial creatures that do not get along with each other.
  • guinea pigs can’t go in hamster wheels or balls. they get spinal injuries from being in a curved position and sometimes die.
  • rats and guinea pigs do better in groups/pairs.
  • hamsters, mice, rats, guinea pigs, cats, and pretty much every single animal can’t live inside a sealed box. they will die. don’t do it.
  • puppies get destructive. they break things and make messes and are loud. they need to be trained. don’t get a puppy if you don’t want to deal with training a large animal.
  • don’t fucking take kittens and puppies away from their mothers prematurely just because they’re cute. it can affect them forever.
  • cats will scratch your furniture and knock things over. declawing cats is a physically harmful and scarring process that literally permanently mutilates their paws. don’t get a cat if you aren’t willing to be patient with them.
  • birds are LOUD. SO LOUD. and incredibly messy. and they bite.
  • most lizards can get up to two feet long. some can live for 20 years. don’t get a baby bearded dragon and expect it to stay that small forever. they reach their full size within a year.
  • pets are real and they have needs. their needs are not luxuries. don’t treat them like they don’t matter.

It’s Jackaboy, the stealthiest hunter to ever stealth.

Just ignore the screaming.

Inspired by @therealjacksepticeye‘s The Hunter Call of the Wild video. It’s a few days late but you know what? I’m gonna shit-post anyway. It also seems topical to the more recent video AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! A blessing to us all. Amen Robin, the editing god.

Single issue vegans make me sick.

And no, I am not talking about people who put veganism and animal rights at the forefront of their advocacy and activism.

I am talking about vegans that complain and blame things on intersectional vegans (vegans who care about more than one issue) and blame veganism’s “downfall” or “lack of popularity” on those “damn SJW vegans”.

You all can fuck off. Animal rights is not the only issue that needs addressing. Racism, sexism, classism, homelessness, ableism, body shaming, transphobia/misogyny, homophobia, anti-LGBTQIAP sentiments, ethnophobia, anti Semitism and islamophobia, ageism, the prison system and SO many other issues need addressing with just as much need and urgency as what happens to non-human animals.

If you are a single issue vegan in the sense that is being described above them unfollow me. Sit in a fucking corner and think about what a shitty person you are. I am so tired of racist, fat shaming, human rights neglecting vegans. Their attitude is a huge detriment.

They want everyone to be vegan but can’t see the obvious struggles so many people face (poverty, food deserts, lack of basic human rights) that may hinder them from living a vegan lifestyle.

So sick of this bullshit.

And good riddens to Gary Yoroufsky. That guy can go get fucked and should disappear from media ASAP.

Come On Baby, Light My Fire: Part 10 - Malapert

Does it count as a first date if you wake in the person’s arms?

We lounge in bed, drifting between awake and asleep, Peeta’s fingertips skating over my legs and hips, etching cool patterns or maybe words into my skin. It’s such a luxury to wile away the hours this way. We get up to eat, but it isn’t until early afternoon that we’re both awake and willing enough to actually go on our hiking date.

I dress in cotton pants and a t-shirt, tugging on a hooded sweatshirt for warmth. Peeta leaves me for a few minutes to dress in his apartment and returns garbed much the way I am, his black backpack slung over one shoulder.

It doesn’t feel like a first date as I drive us out of town, since Peeta apparently doesn’t own a car, preferring to walk or use public transportation to get around the city. We talk and laugh, the windows down and the crisp fall air making a tangled mess of flyaways even though I braided my hair. I tell him about the time my father and I got ourselves chased up a tree by a black bear when we plucked berries from a bush he’d apparently already laid claim to. And as I park in one of the lots at the trailhead near Lake Panem, I realize that I’ve never been this comfortable on a first date before.

queen-nat-xvi  asked:

you recently made a post about how seaworld doesn't mislead its trainers. why do they spout incorrect information about orca lifespans and reasons for why the dorsal fin droops? I'm not trying to be hostile, I genuinely don't understand why they would give the wrong info (like orcas max lifespan is 45 years) unless somebody was lying somewhere down the line.

First off, the average lifespan of wild southern pacific residents is 45, and that is true (and seems a little high, IIRC). I was writing a whole article on this at one point and I guess I should really go back and finish because people keep asking. Basically, if you read the wild census, you get a lot of young deaths - and then any animal that lives to adulthood will probably live into their 40′s. Most female whales go into what is effectively thought to be menopause and lose the ability to reproduce about 25 years after their first surviving calf… which is right around 45-50. Now, there are definitely outliers, and that’s what people get mad about - because you get people saying a normal lifespan is about 50 years shy of how long Granny lived - but you can’t measure a general population lifespan from a single animal. 

Second, I actually had the same question - what’s up with the dorsal fin collapse stuff people keep getting told weird things about? Since I was able to visit the parks through the AZA conferences I’ve attended, I asked someone.The response was that they’re absolutely allowed to tell the current theory - it’s even been talked about by some of their vets in public videos. So they’re not, as a company, trying to obfuscate that truth. I do know that Seaworld has been owned by a number of different companies, and that the way they trained educators was pretty different under each - Anheuser-Busch was the era of educators being trained to withhold animal names and only refer to them by stage names, avoid specific buzzwords with emotional connotations, and during that period educators didn’t have the ability to answer some questions - like about animal death - really at all.

I’d say it is likely that what is happening is educators or volunteers haven’t fully switched over yet. Not everyone you talk to outside a tank is going to be a trainer, and sometimes education departments and animal staff do not communicate as effectively as they should. Not to mention, when you’ve been trained for a long time to respond to the public a certain way, it takes time and practice to shift your responses away from those old habits. It’s also entirely probable that the people who are still giving weird messaging are worried enough about public backlash that they’re afraid to communicate more correctly - which is not great practice, but it’s not evidence intentional dishonesty from this current iteration of the company. 

Dorsal collapse absolutely does have to do with the animals spending more time at the surface, which wild whales don’t have the luxury or the chance to do (which is a luxury in the sense of it’s very rare for big mammals that have to eat a lot to be able to just chill out and stay still in the wild). This produces a very different pattern of air and water resistance on the fibrous tissue in the fin - and it probably starts to droop because it’s not getting as much underwater resistance or it’s being used unevenly. The direction the dorsal fin flops will be influenced by the animals preferred swim patterns, because  In addition to gravity, it’s theorized that UV exposure and heat does weaken the tissues causing them to sag. While it’s abnormal, for sure, it does not appear to be maladaptive - it’s not pretty but there’s not evidence that it actually causes health problems or harms the whales in anyway. 

Millard Nullings headcanons!

- Millard is a GEEK for musical theatre.

- Millard prefers plays/musicals with good plots, and doesn’t care much about humor. his favorite is definitely spring awakening, but he also likes Dear Evan Hansen, bc it hit close to home for him

- Candles!! Millard ! loves ! candles! Whenever he gives gifts, it’d either be a candle or would include a candle, and once he gets to the modern day world, Yankee Candle is the reason why hes still breathing

- this Boy loves every single animal he comes across. all of them.

- He can play the piano!

- He can play a lot of things, actually. He was one of Miss Peregrine’s first wards and, although he read a lot, there weren’t a lot of kids to spend the rest of his time with, so he used that time to learn how to play instruments like the violin & cello instead!

- He sneaks into Jacob’s school sometimes, just to experience the social and learning aspects of it all

- he’s Italian !!! He doesn’t carry much of the accent, but, even though you cant see him, he talks with his hands. a LOT.

- he Hates seafood. don’t come near him with it or he will actually cry

- gay And european

- He’s always tired, no matter how much sleep he attempts to get. He’s just. always tired.

- He debates for the sake of debating, and it annoys the shit out of the other kids. Once he learns of debate club in the modern world, he and Enoch team up. Millard plans out and writes the debates, and Enoch actually,, says them because hes… yknow… visible

- Millard also loves flowers, and often visits Fiona just to see what she’s growing in the garden now

- His favorite flowers are sunflowers!!!

- He and Enoch watch Forensic Files together. it’s their bonding moments, and one of Millard’s favorite things to do.

- He can knit. Fiona taught him how to, one day, before the bombs hit, when it was badly storming outside 

- His fav color is teal.. or any kind of blue, really, because he remembers his mom once telling him blue complemented his eyes + complexion very well, and even if he cant see himself or remember what he looks like anymore, it still brings him a strange kind of comfort.

Request: OH, could you write #6 “I’m scared of loving you” with Kai from Tvd?

Growing up in Mystic Falls you never thought things would ended up this way. It had always been a quiet place where people grew up and died peacefully. Or so you thought. As you grew up being the sheriff’s niece, you started realising how strange all those deaths by “animal attack” actually were. You had been in the woods so many times and you never saw a single wild animal. So where did they come from those that attack people? It just didn’t make sense.

You spent years looking for an answer and once you found it, you wish you never had. Vampires. Mystic Falls was crowded with them, they lived with you and there were more and more every year. It was just crazy. Vampires weren’t supposed to be real but when you told your cousin, Caroline, about it, she just freaked you out even more. She was a vampire as well, just like Elena and the Salvatore brothers. You always thought there was something odd about them but you never thought it would be that.

Since the moment you found out about vampires you became their “protected”. Especially from the new Parker guy in town. They didn’t trust him and you couldn’t blame them, he had a reputation and even when you two were friends, you knew what he had done in the past.

You met him the moment he came in town, fucking your peace up during weeks but, for some reason, he gave up just when he was about to get what he wanted the most: to get all his family power. Nobody knew what had stopped him but you were happy believing that you had something to do with it, even when no one believed you.

“So you got away from your babysitter?” He asked you the moment you took a seat in front of him at the Grill.

“Shut up, Parker”, you said rolling your eyes. “You know they’re just worried”, you shrugged.

“It’s stupid. If I wanted to hurt you I would have done it weeks ago and yet, here you are, safe and sound” he said smiling at you.

“I know but…” you sighed and shook your head. “Just let them be”, you finally said.

“Ok”, he huffed and looked around. “You gotta be kidding me…” He mumbled looking at the door.

You frowned at his tone and turned around, frowning even more when you saw Damon and Stefan walking in the bar. It had to be a joke. They promised they would give you space.

“Excuse me”, you said before getting up and walking towards them. “What are you doing here?” You asked.

“Just having some drinks”, Damon replied innocently but you knew him better than that.

“And couldn’t you do such thing at your own personal bar in your own personal mansion?” You snapped sarcastic.

“Oh c’mon, it’s not that fun”, he smirked.

“You came to spy on me”, you crossed your arms looking at them.

“Not exactly true. We came to spy on him”, you looked at where he was pointing. It didn’t surprise you to see that he was looking at Kai.

“I hate you guys, we are just having some dinner. What’s the problem?” You asked looking at both of them.

“The problem is the way he looks at you”, Stefan sighed. Confused, you looked at him. “He loves you and we don’t trust him”

Your breath got caught in your throat as they said that. Of course you didn’t believe him but the chance of Kai loving you was scaring. You did trust him, you thought he was hot and handsome, and an amazing friend, but you just couldn’t ignore all those comments and stories surrounding him.

“He doesn’t love me. We are just friends so can you please stop all this stalking protective shit?” You said.

Before they could say anything else you went back to the table but instead of sitting again, you took Kai’s hand and walked out of the Grill. It wasn’t the only place where you could have dinner together.

“Where are we going?”  He asked you when you got into your car. Since you didn’t reply he just got in with you.

“There is one place where they can come in”, you told him.

You had your own apartment in town where you had allowed many vampires to come in but none of them had ever been in your cabin. It was old and little, but vampires weren’t allowed to go in and you weren’t going to invite them. On the way there you just stopped to get some food from your apartment and then you drove all the way to the woods to the cabin.

“I heard what Stefan said”, Kai said after a while. You gulped but didn’t look at him. “What do you think?”

“I think that you’re a great friend Kai…” you whispered. “And I think this is not a conversation I want to have while I’m driving”, you added with a sigh.

You felt his eyes on you but you just ignored him, there was nothing to say, not at that moment at least. Lucky for you, he said nothing and let you drive which was relieving. Thirty minutes later you got the small cabin and he was the first one getting out of the car, slamming the door behind him. Damn, he was mad and he was scary when he was mad.

Biting your lip, you got out of the car and locked it before walking the cabin and opening the door so you two could walk in. While he looked around the place, you turned on the lights and put everything in the fridge.

“Are you hungry?” You asked cautiously.

“No”, he said simply.

You bite your lip at his tone and looked down. So he really wanted to talk about that thing.

“What’s wrong?” You asked not moving from where you were.

“You know what’s wrong”, he said turning to look at you. His blue eyes were dark with anger and frustration and, to you, he never looked better. “Why can’t we talk about what Stefan said?”

“Kai…” You looked away and took a deep breath. “I’ve been controlling these feelings for months now, I don’t want to…let them flow. It would be bad”, you tried to explain.

“Why would it be bad if those feelings are reciprocate?”

“Because…” You bite your lip and looked at him. “It’s dangerous. You…you are dangerous, Kai. You know you are. We are friends, good friends and yeah, I wish we were more but… I’m scared”

“Are you scared of me?” He asked frowning, looking hurt.

“I’m scared of loving you.” You admitted. “I’m scared of saying the wrong thing and making you angry, I’m scared of falling too hard and-“

“I’ll catch you”, he said immediately. “If you fall I’ll be there, always, to catch you. Every single time. It doesn’t matter how high you are, I will be there”, he said making your heart melt a little. “Stefan was right. I do love you and I’ve been waiting all these months for you to realise it, but you didn’t. I know the things I did, I know they were wrong but… I want to make the right thing for you, because you deserve a better man, a better Kai and I want to be the best for you.”

“You don’t change Kai…you love…yourself”, you chuckled looking down.

“So does Damon and he changed for Elena, right?” He asked making you look up. He walked towards you and took your face in his hands. “I love you more than I love myself”, he whispered making you blush a little.

“That’s like…a lot”, you mumbled.

“I know it is”, he smiled pulling your face gently to his and kissing you softly. “Be mine, please”, he whispered pulling away enough just to look at you properly.

“You’re insane, Parker, you know that?” You smiled placing your hands on his waist and moving a step closer.

“You drive me insane, you know that?” He mocked you making you laugh.

“I love you too”, you finally admitted before closing the gap between you two to kiss him again, not pulling away this time since no words were necessary anymore.

Status Ongoing, part 2 coming soon

Kim Taehyung has been your mortal enemy ever since you were fifteen. He wasn’t always such a monster, but he entered a downward spirl after death had started to surround him. He was a vampire - everyone already thought he was an evil being, so why not make their nightmares come true? Encountering you after you quit vampire hunting may have been his greatest stroke of luck yet - his one and only chance to end it all.

  • Anomalisa: Gorgeous and mature movie. Will change you. Has shocking scenes but they aren't too bad and make sense for the story. Seriously. This one will change you. The animation is also gorgeous and very fluid
  • Felidae: It's about a cat solving a murder mystery, with cats. It looks very friendly at first but the minute you see the first dead cat you know it's all down hill. There is a lot of shock scenes in this one, including some gory dead cats and a small sex scene.
  • When The Wind Blows: This movie messed up my goddamn emotions. Also looks innocent, till you hear David Bowie. Yes, there is a David Bowie song in this movie. It makes it so much better. Very sad and will probably ruin your mood.
  • 9: it's not adult but it's pg-13 so it like counts I guess yay. it's not the best thing but the animation is really good and the overall plot is interesting and engaging
  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame: not an adult movie but j e su s christ it should be one. Beautiful, stunning, and talks about subjects like sexual desires and religion
  • Watership Down/Plague Dogs: Do you like animals??? WELL DON'T WATCH THIS MOVIE CAUSE THEY WILL FUCK YOU UP and make you want to donate to every single animal organization. They are very gorgeous though.
