sized fruit

Story Shard 575

Fruit Dragons:

-They carefully cultivate an orchard of their favorite fruit trees, since fruit is their main food. If a bug infestation occurs though, they will eat every harmful bug to protect their trees.

-To start their orchard, they will find an open field or meadow and plant the seed of their favorite fruit. Once planted they use a special spell only known to their kind to rapidly grow the tree. 

-Usually the size of a large housecat, they are long and slender with dexterous clawed paws. Their scales change to match either the fruit of the tree they’re in or the fruit they are craving.

-They can fly but have no wings, as they would get in the way as they check the branches on their trees. They are often checking their trees for dead branches, damage, and such.

-In their oldest trees they weave hammocks from things like vines and stash their hoard their. If one tries to approach one such tree, they will be viciously driven from the orchard.

I absolutely adore that headcanon that went around a while ago where the layout of the Fenton household is constantly shifting and changing

but what if we took it a step further

what if the WHOLE OF AMITY PARK was affected by the portal, being in such close proximity to a tear between dimensions and effectively SOAKING in all the ectoplasmic radiation it’s been pumping out over the years

so this quaint little town starts to develop a few rather odd… quirks

like the water fountain in the park turns strange colours on occasion and smells (and tastes as Tucker discovered on a dare) strongly of burnt sugar

there’s this one road on the edge of town that, though it appears to be straight, somehow loops back on itself so that you end up back where you started, but only if you’re wearing shoes, this odd detail was discovered when Paulina’s heel broke as she and Star were writing a school paper on the landmark and she had to continue barefoot

the local shopping mall has its strange traits too, the glass ceiling of the food court shows an odd stormy red sky no matter the weather outside, except for once every seventeen days when it randomly turns into an aurora borealis-esque light show for differing periods of time, Kwan has these days marked on his calendar and sometimes skips school to see it, sometimes Danny joins him

a lot of the stores reach much farther back than physics says they really should, clerks always remember to clear the back of the shops on Monday afternoons, some of the stores like to revert back to regular size on Tuesdays

the parking lot behind the bowling alley is a favourite of Ida Manson’s, she and the elderly of Amity frequent the spot on Saturday mornings as the strange gravity shifts do wonders for their aching joints, being able to dance and leap like they’re light as a feather makes them feel young again

the walk to school could take someone five minutes one day, and an hour the next, Lancer has added ‘spacial disturbances’ to his list of acceptable excuses for being late

there’s this one tree in the park that every child feels compelled to climb, because halfway up they discover that they’re suddenly climbing back towards the ground upside down, their friends have to grab hold of their arms to stop them from falling into the sky until they climb back down the tree again and gravity goes back to normal

the Mansons lobby to have the tree cut down after catching their daughter climbing it, Sam and the neighbourhood children protest by climbing the tree and hanging upwards from the lower branches like reverse bats, the parents refuse to let the tree be destroyed until their childrens’ sense of gravity is restored

nobody goes down the slide at the Nasty Burger playground any more, the last three kids to do so still haven’t stopped screaming, nobody can figure out why

a majority of the residents of Amity Park overlook most of these strange occurrences, or put police tape around the dangerous ones and ignore them, they live in a town where ghosts attack regularly, changes like these have become not only unsurprising, but expected

and then the animals start to mutate, dogs are born with unnaturally coloured fur, fish are leaping out of their tanks and floating above the water, cats slip behind one object and come out behind another across the yard, some herbivorous animals gain a craving for meat and all of the local pigeons decide that flying in a spiral shape above the public library for three hours every morning is a productive start to the day

even plants start to grow into weird shapes and sizes, fruits with strange tastes and colours become a trend at local Sunday markets, seeds grow without even being planted or watered, root vegetables are found on above-ground vines, berries start growing out of the painted wood of a backyard fence

and then the children start to change

the only trend among the human mutations that local doctors can find is that every person identified had been a child or young teenager whose body had yet to finish developing when the ghosts had first started attacking (or, more accurately, when the portal had first been opened)

mutations range from purely harmless to downright disturbing, a teenager with blue eyebrows, a child with horns growing from the back of their left hand, a little girl whose hair drips down her back as though it’s made of liquid, an older boy whose teeth all fell out and grew back seemingly normal but turned out to be diamond hard and capable of biting through solid steel

the mutations only grow as the years pass, the older children developing dangerous abilities that could rival some of the local ghosts, kids being capable of duplicating themselves, a girl spotted flying to school, someone with green skin seen at the local supermarket, it’s even said that the Fenton’s kid can knock buildings over just by screaming at them

the Guys in White stop trying to protect the town, it becomes very clear that it doesn’t need protecting, it needs CONTAINING, but they soon discover that this is a far more difficult task than first assumed

because the overpowered youth of Amity Park have grown accustomed to a new-found sense of freedom the likes they’d never experienced before

and they don’t like being contained

anonymous asked:

Can I request something? I'll do it anyways (>w<) I was wondering if you could draw some Klunk, but with a twist, and that twist being that either Lance or Hunk ate something that made them into a giant, or shrunk them to being tiny. Ps: you're blog is fabulous, I joined it yesterday and I already looove it.

(/w\) Thank you Anon!

The only reason why you ever agreed to come to Korea with your friends was because they had promised to go to Bryson Tiller’s next concert in LA with you. It was fine really. Your plane ticket? Paid. Hotel room? Paid. Room service? Paid. Transportation? Paid. Food and water? Paid by your sugar daddy. 

“I still can’t believe you have a sugar daddy.” Your friend, Jake, whispered to you as everyone loaded into the taxi that was taking you all to the hotel.

“Do you have any idea how difficult it is for me to pay for college?” You shot back at him in a low voice. Maryann, another friend, looked at you two quickly before the taxi driver told her something in Korean. 

“That doesn’t mean you should prostitute yourself, you know.” 

“I’m a sugar baby, not a prostitute.” He rolled his eyes as he began to load his luggage into the truck.

“It’s not different.”

“Yes it is.” You were incredibly angry at Jake for his ignorance. “I simply go on dates with the man, hear about his day. We don’t have sex. That isn’t what sugar babies do.” Jake scoffed as he began to place your luggage on top his his and in between Maryann’s. 

“Lots of them have sex with their sugar daddy. It’s only a matter of time before you do as well.” Jake could never fully respect what you ever did.

 You were triple majoring, it was a lot of money. You had fucked up in high school and ended in community college but transferred out at the end of the first year because you were constantly on your counselor about taking extra classes to leave early. This determination landed you at Stanford. But it was expensive, you did not receive a full ride even though you clearly deserved it. Working helped but it was difficult with your tight school schedule. So you did what your older friends did; get a sugar daddy. Ray was sweet, and you had told him you weren’t going to have sex with him in exchange of money, just give him company. The 37 year old man happily agreed, giving you an allowance of $4,000 biweekly. All of it went towards school. He had offered to pay off your school from the beginning but you had simply told him the allowance was okay and enough for you to put in money every chance you got for your education and school supplies. 

As a photographer, psychiatrist, and business major, you were always busy. But summer vacations had finally come and you were more than happy to leave the stress of university for a bit. 

“Hey, (Y/N)?” Maryann was directing the driver to the hotel and soon turned to you.

“Hm?” You were focused on your hands, looking pitifully at how fragile they seemed as you turned over the words that Jake had spat at you. 

“We are going to a Kpop fan meeting.” You looked up at her face. A smile illuminated her face. 

“I thought we were here because your sister was getting married here.” 

“That too.” 

“How convenient,” Jake muttered. She smacked his arm, rolling her eyes.

Weird theory size thing

Bananas can fit in your hand right? Good. How the HECK are RainWings able to live off just fruit! A banana should be the size of a blueberry to them! We have seen dragons feeding fruit to scavengers and it’s almost as if they were the size of hamsters. Like seriously how does this work? Trees must be like bushes to dragons, and so the rain forest trees must be HUGE!!!!

So let’s say everything is just dragon sized. But then how did scavengers even roam the continent before without being eaten by a cow or starving to death? The trees are too tall and the animals bigger than you! Also shouldn’t rabbits, shrimp and fish would never be a sustainable meal! JUST HOW!?!?!?!


Tbh I think this might be one of the inconsistencies in Tui’s writing.

For the fruit part, I can imagine there being various sizes of fruit that are more filling to dragons. There would also be smaller ones, the sizes we are more used to. 

For the animals, I’m kind of at a loss as well. To me I think stuff like cows, bears, and generally larger animals could be a sustainable meal for one dragon. Plus, I personally like to think dragons only need a full meal every once in a while (similar to snakes).

Maybe smaller stuff (bunnies, shrimp, teeny bananas) are considered little finger food snacks? Lol.

hiphoppip  asked:

Okay so i know you can have super small bonsai but is there like a mid sized bonsai? Can you make yourself an apple bonsai thats just the size of a largeish houseplant? Or would that require an extra large pot for the roots to grow in?

ok so im gonna just dump here everything i know about bonsai, which isnt a lot but its what i have:

-i had a friend who was really into bonsai and he said that, in theory, you can make any plant into a bonsai. i have no idea if this is true

-sometimes the plonts get confused and grow full sized fruits even if theyre really tiny

-bonsais take years and decades to make, and its a process called “training”, as in, the plant starts????? semi-big i think?? and then theres a special way you slowly prune it back until the plant is used to being small??????

-bonsai vary in size??? like ive seen some on display that are older and smaller and some that are younger and larger because they’ve been in training for less time?? the younger ones ive seen are about the size of a mid-sized houseplant or smaller.

My very own blueberry bush! I wanted a variety that stays on the small side but still produces plenty of nice-size fruit, and this ‘Patriot’ cultivar was perfect for that. I only have room for one, but i’m sure it will cross-pollinate with the native bushes growing in the woods out back.

The Pima /ˈpiːmə/[3] (or Akimel O'odham, also spelled Akimel O'otham, “River People”, formerly known as Pima) are a group of Native Americans living in an area consisting of what is now central and southern Arizona.

Fox regression food list

Hi everyone! I’m a pet regressor, but I regress to a fox. Unlike others, I regress to a non domestic animal. Therefore it’s usually hard to find fox regression stuff that’s not fox pl@y or k!nk. So today, I am providing you with some fox regression friendly treats to eat!

Well, for starters, red foxes are omnivores, (I’m going with red foxes because it’s the most recognizable species of fox). They eat small animals, berries, fruits, grasses, and invertebrates like caterpillars, crickets and crayfish.

Now, as human people, this is a diet we can probably match.

🍇Fruits🍇
For me, I like small melon balls, blueberries, generally small, bite sized fruit. I also like dried stuff, like packs of dried papaya and mango. (Trail mix is good too)

🌿Veggies🌿
Now, I don’t really like veggies, but they’re healthy and some people like them. My suggestions are, celery sticks, baby carrots, and maybe lettuce? (If anyone has suggestions, feel free to respond or reblog)

🍗Meat🍗
My personal favorite is beef jerky, like, it’s great. Also, cut up bits of chicken, and sometimes ham if you can get that. I like shrimp and tuna fish too.

🐜Bugs🐜
Okay, I know what you’re thinking. “I AM NOT GOING TO EAT A BUG”. Man, I’m not gonna either. (And if you wanna, foxes like crickets; you can actually order those in packs online)
But I you wanna eat something similar to a bug, Feast of Fiction made a tutorial awhile ago for chocolate beetles from Coraline! They look like bugs, but they’re chocolate!
And that’s all I have for now! I hope you enjoyed!


PLEASE NO K!NK, PET PL@Y, OR 18+ INTERACTION!!! IT MAKES ME UNCOMFORTABLE

June 25, 2017 (Day 365)

Rick looked at his watch. “Hey, babe? You need any help? You’ve been up there a while,” he called from the base of the stairs.

When he got no response, Rick hurried up the steps and into the lake house’s master bedroom. Michonne was sitting in the window seat with her head down between her legs breathing deeply. Rick rushed over to his wife.

“Babe?! Babe?! Are you okay? Do we need to go to the hospital?”

Michonne took another deep inhale and then slowly sat up. “I’m fine. I just felt dizzy all of a sudden.”

Rick squatted down in front of his wife. His face was etched with concern. “Why didn’t you lie down on the bed and put your feet up? The doctor told us that’s the best thing to do.”

“Honestly, the bed seemed a million miles away in that moment and I didn’t want to risk falling down.”

“Well, I understand that. But, call me next time so I can help. Do you think you can stand now?”

“Yeah. I’m better now.”

Rick stood and helped Michonne slowly ease from the window seat. Looking at his wife closely, he eventually felt confident that she was indeed okay. He let out a breath.

“If that happens again, we are getting one of those Life Alert bracelets.”

Michonne scoffed. “I’m not elderly, Rick. I’m pregnant.”
