sting calls

baby-rowlet  asked:

Hi there~! I adore your art it's absolutely adorable!! Do you think you could draw Yukino x Minerva, there really isn't enough love for them in this fandom? If you're too busy I understand ^.^ (feel free to add Stingue on the side aha I love them too~ But you don't have to!)

Thank you, I’m glad you like my art! :D

Personally, I don’t ship Yukino/Minerva but hell still I want to see them spending time together! <3

Double date double date double daaaate

does anyone else find it really cute that natsu and gajeel are ACTUALLY the older brothers and sting and rogue are wendy's age? it's adorable jeeeeeee

Natsu and Gajeel being Sting and Rogue’s adopted older bros is the cutest thing ever and I’m never gonna be over it okay ⊙ω⊙

  • There’s a swear jar and a ‘Made Yukino cry, faint or upset’ jar
  • Both get filled regularly especially when someone from Fairy Tail visits
  • Behind those there’s a smaller ‘Overreacted to something involving Frosch’ jar (which gets full fast)
  • Sting overheard someone calling Sabertooth ‘Gaybertooth’ and won’t stop calling the guild that. Especially at council meetings.
  • They’re super competitive and have a ‘battle of fairy tail’ style tournament six months after the GMG to keep them going and also to see who’s the 5 strongest and most likely to make up the Sabertooth team.
  • The 5 top placed mages from the tournament get sabotaged the rest of the six months until the GMG team is announced. 
  • I don’t think you understand they’re SUPER COMPETITIVE
  • Competitions out of everything
  • Winner gets the contents of the jars
  • Sting gives Rogue pet names when he’s moody
  • The worse the mood the more sickly/amount of pet names
  • Soon Orga joins in, followed by Rufus, followed by the whole guild until on a bad day everyone will at least refer to him as Roguey
  • Guildhall slumber parties
  • Rogue, Yukino, Minerva and Rufus actually end up doing all of the ‘master’ work while Sting goofs off
  • He still whines about the amount of paperwork from the council though
  • So much so that they decide to take a ‘Fairy Tail approach’ to the council and just ignore them
  •  They find out they’re not the only guild to have a pool so decide to one up Fairy Tail by putting a bar in the pool
  • I mentioned they were competitive didn’t I?

7 Underwater Facts for World Oceans Day

Today is World Oceans Day, a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future. A healthy world ocean is critical to our survival. Together, let’s honor, help protect, and conserve the world’s oceans!

1. While the Earth’s oceans are known as five separate entities, there is really only one ocean.

2. The ocean contains upwards of 99% of the world’s biosphere, that is, the spaces and places where life exists.

Both above GIFs are from the TED-Ed Lesson How big is the ocean? - Scott Gass

Animation by 20 steps

3. Jellyfish are soft because they are 95% water and are mostly made of a translucent gel-like substance called mesoglea. With such delicate bodies, jellyfish rely on thousands of venom-containing stinging cells called cnidocytes for protection and prey capture.

4. Plastics & litter that make their way into our oceans are swiftly carried by currents, ultimately winding up in huge circulating ocean systems called gyres. The earth has five gyres that act as gathering points, but the largest of all is known as the ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’ and has grown so immense that the oceanic garbage patch can shift from around the size of Texas, to something the size of the United States.

5. The 200 or so species of octopuses are mollusks belonging to the order Cephalopoda, Greek for ‘head-feet’. Those heads contain impressively large brains, with a brain to body ratio similar to that of other intelligent animals, and a complex nervous system with about as many neurons as that of a dog.

From the TED-Ed Lesson Why the octopus brain is so extraordinary - Cláudio L. Guerra

6. Some lucky animals are naturally endowed with bioluminescence, or the ability to create light. The firefly, the anglerfish, and a few more surprising creatures use this ability in many ways, including survival, hunting, and mating.

7. Sea turtles ultimately grow from the size of a dinner plate to that of a dinner table. In the case of the leatherback sea turtle, this can take up to a decade. Happy World Turtle Day!

Allergy Relief: Nettle Tea

Urtica dioica or commonly called Stinging Nettle is a diverse herb with known medical attributes dating back to as early as around 100 AD. The stinging sensation this plant can give off comes from small glass like hairs on the leaves, that when broken release a stinging liquid made up of formic acid, histamine, acetyl-choline and serotonin. However, fear not because the juice made from grinding the leaves of this plant can be used to treat its sting. 

Nettle can used to treat hay fever, asthma, itchy skin, insect bites, and most importantly treat acute allergy symptoms. (After trying this brew I did notice a significant decrease in my seasonal allergy symptoms.) In addition nettle can boost the production of breast milk, cleanse urine, treat enlarged prostates, work as an anti-arthritic, and slow bleeding. If you’re on any sort of medication for depression, diabetes, high blood pressure, or sedatives nettle can cause a moderate reaction.

The tea has a light grassy smell and mild taste of spinach. Honey is a great addition to this tea.

Happy Allergy Season,

It’s honestly gross how reluctant the fairy tail fandom is to ship gay ships. Like Fraxus is one of the cutest ships with tons on interaction and moments yet Mira and Laxus are a more popular ship when they barely interact with each other. Same with Stingue. Rogue literally called Sting the light of his life and the fandoms all “yup juST GUYS BEING TOTALLY PLATONIC BROS” and I just don’t get it. Like I guarantee that if one of them was female it would be one of the more popular ships and Sting x Yukino or Rogue x Yukino wouldn’t exist. Also it’s totally okay to ship Lyon with Chelia or Doranbolt with Wendy even though it’s literally pedophilia but as soon as someone says they like Chendy they’re suddenly “too young.” And Cana literally shows so many signs of being attracted to Lucy yet I think more people ship her with Laxus or Bacchus than they do Lucy. Not everyone in the fandom is like this and I am extremely grateful for those in the fandom who do support and ship gay ships as well as straight ships or even just exclusively gay ships. I just think the amount of heteronormativity in this fandom is seriously disturbing and it’s disappointing that such a cool community is missing out on such fun and loving relationships just because they don’t want to ship two guys together or two girls together. Sorry for the rant I just needed to say this. I don’t even care if anyone reads this I just wanted to get it off my chest. I’m not meaning to hate on or bash any of the hetero ships I talked about (okay maybe I was hating on mir*xus a little bit) I just seriously don’t understand why people ship them but I mean no offense if you ship one of the ships I mentioned disliking.

FT Characters, you’ve just found Freed and Laxus making out in the closet!

(As requested by Blue Blast)

So you’ve discovered Laxus and Freed kissing in the cupboard, thoughts?

Lucy: Um, I gotta go and start writing a new novel!

Mirajane: Cute blush Freed. [winks] [leaves them alone to continue]

Erza: [shuts the door quietly with a red face]

Natsu: Hey what are you two doing?


Freed: … [hiding a red face in Laxus’ chest]

Natsu: [sent flying by Laxus’ punch]

Gray: Yeah I’m gonna go…

Gray: I think I’ll call Lyon…

Sting: Did Rufus dye his hair green?

Rogue: Come away Sting, this is a potential health hazard zone.

Sting: How come?

Rogue: You do see Laxus Dreyar glaring at you right?

Makarov: Please just let me be going senile.

Cana: Yeah I’m just gonna stand here and watch you for a minute, k?

Orga: This had better not mean I have to start kissing Rufus.

Lyon: I think I’ll call Gray…

Juvia: B-b-boys love!?

Gildarts: And they say it’s weird to think about your parents doing it.

Evergreen: … [scowls]

Bickslow: … [grins]

Evergreen: Oh here’s your money.

Bickslow: I totally called this.

Elfman: Manly. [sent flying via Laxus punch]

Levy: [casually drops her books on the floor to set a recording lacrima to watch later]

Freed: [is aware of what she planned and continues with a large blush on his face]

Hibiki, Ren & Eve: We can’t let the boss see this.

Master Bob: Well aren’t you two yummy?

Ichiya: Meeeen!

Hibiki, Ren & Eve: [facepalm] Why do we even bother?

MARETU-P feat. 初音ミク
パケットヒーロー (Packet Hero)

Everyone who chases after this thing called “love”,
is intoxicated by this stinging pain.
Still people call out anyone and anyone,
searching for some kind of connection.

I’ve become hollow on that dream of mine,
though I guess I’ve grown up in the process.

How long do I want to keep crying…?
“You don’t understand anything!”

  • Baby Holmes: *sprawled on the sofa; bored* Daddy?
  • Sherlock: *working* Mmm?
  • Baby Holmes: Can we watch the bee movie?
  • Sherlock: ...
  • Sherlock: *drops a test tube* There's a movie about bees?
  • Baby Holmes: Err, well-
  • Sherlock: *excitedly rushes to the sofa* Go on, then. And we've been watching those princess ones.
  • Baby Holmes: *rolls his eyes*
  • *LATER*
  • *baby Holmes' bedroom*
  • Molly: *tucking in her son* So, did you enjoy the bee movie?
  • Baby Holmes: *casually* No.
  • Molly: *confused* Oh. Then, why did you want to watch it with your dad?
  • Sherlock: *opens the door; speaking rapidly* A colony of bees can contain between twenty thousand to sixty thousand bees, but only the one queen bee. Superior. A bee’s wings beat one hundred and ninety times a second, which equals eleven thousand four hundred times a minute! *points* Hamish, honey is good for you. It's the only food to contain pinocembrin that is an antioxidant that improves brain function. Eat some. I've estimated that it would take one thousand one hundred bee stings to produce enough venom to be fatal *gestures* Molly, remember the White case? Widow claimed it was an accident. There are nine hundred cells in a bee’s brain, nine hundred more than can be found in Philip Anderson *approaches and ruffles his son's hair* Goodnight, son *kisses his forehead* Molly, in the bedroom when you're ready *leaves quickly*
  • Baby Holmes: *grins* Daddy really liked it.
  • Molly: *smiles*
Midnight Phonecalls

“Hello?” You mumble into the phone.
“Yea it’s me.” He sounds so sad, and tired.
“What time is it?”
“Your time? Probably around five am. For me, it’s three.”
“Are you okay?” You ask sitting up and leaning against the headboard.
“Uh, yea.” He pauses and you hear him sigh. “Will you just talk to me?” He’s never told you what the nightmares are about but if you had to guess it was probably something to do with his job, specifically everything that happened with Haley and Jack.
“Jack and I went to the zoo today. He’s doing a project about Sting Rays so I called my friend Janet to see if we could get a tour. She let Jack feed them and he got to do an interview with her. He already put a thank you in the mail and she said he was a total delight. You would have been so proud. The puppy is getting fixed on Tuesday, which I feel bad because it’s going to hurt but we don’t want puppies. She didn’t have any accidents in her kennel today which was wonderful.” You shift and slip out of bed, heading for the balcony in your and Aaron’s room. “I miss you. I had a rough day at work, some of the kids are not thrilled about having to be inside so they were pretty hyper. I’m glad it was Friday.” This isn’t the first time you’ve done this for him. The air is cool but the night is clear and being in the suburbs allows you to see some of the stars, more than when you lived in DC.
“I should be home tomorrow.”
“That will be nice. You sound upset Aaron. Is everything okay?” He doesn’t say anything, you just hear his soft shaky breaths. “Just the nightmares?”
“Oh Aaron I’m so sorry.” You comfort, “I wish there was more I could do.”
“You’re helping so much more than you know.”
“Do you want me to keep talking?”
“If you don’t mind.”
“Not at all. I’m working on teaching Zig sit. She just gets so excited that she gets it right then immediately forgets what she’s done right.” You chuckle softly, adding Ziggy was not only a security thing but a wonderful source of stories for when Aaron has nightmares. “We’re going to keep working on it. Jack got an A on his science test but when he tells you pretend like you don’t know.”
“I’m glad he has you in his life. You’re so good to him.”
“I’m glad he’s in my life. I don’t know what I would have done without either of you.”
“Thank god I came upon the scene then huh.” He muses lightly but it still sort of freaks you out. What could have happened if Aaron hadn’t shown up when he did. The man dragging you into the alley, one hand over your mouth the other in your shirt. You’d tried to fight him off, had tried to scream but he’d told you he had a knife, when you kept fighting he’d sliced your arm with it. Aaron had seen enough, and his instincts had taken over, he’d come running into the alley gun up and looking pissed. He’d arrested the man, called for backup and held you as you’d sobbed into his shoulder. You’d never felt so dirty or helpless in your life. Thankfully the cops hadn’t victim blamed you, something that was horrifyingly common.
“Seriously. I still have nightmares about it.” You admit, he’s not the only one.
“I didn’t know that.”
“I know. I was lucky, all he did was cut my arm, it could have been so much worse. It’s nothing compared to what you deal with on a weekly basis so I didn’t want to make a big deal about it.”
“Sweetheart. I love you. If you’re scared, or you need to call me and have me talk to you until you can sleep please tell me.”
“When you’re home it’s fine. I just curl up next to you. When you’re not home I’ll grab a tshirt and sleep in that. But they’re rare.”
“Still. Don’t feel bad for calling.”
“I hope you don’t feel bad for calling.”
“I do. But I know that you’re the one thing that can calm me down, help me relax enough to sleep again.”
“Don’t ever feel bad. If you asked me to fly to wherever you were so you could sleep I would.”
“I know. It’s one of the many reasons I love you.” His voice sounds thick with sleep.
“Why don’t you go to sleep?”
“Will you stay on the line until I fall asleep?”
“Of course.” You curl up on the bed then talk to him about nothing. Five minutes later you hear a soft snore, and smile into the phone. “I love you Aaron Hotchner.” You whisper before you hang up and fall asleep.

“It’s called a sting, sweetheart!”

Practice doodles between disney work and commissions.  According to the artbook, the ZPD SWAT is made up entirely of large mammals like Rhinos and Elephants, so I wondered what  it would be like if Nick and Judy joined the SWAT team, for those tight-corners and close-quarter engagements. 

Judy needs a weapon as agile and flexible as she is: the FN Herstal P90 PDR. I’ve always thought of the P90 as a very unique gun design with a immediately recognizable silouette.  With its tiny exterior barrel and enormous clip size, it’s perfect for accompanying a tiny bunny dashing between corridors and breaching through tight openings. 

Nick, on the other hand, always had Judy’s back, and needs the perfect support weapon to match:  the Milkor M32 MGL.  It’s light and maneuverable, with a collapsible stock for both steady aim and rapid engagement.  The ability to be loaded with anything from non-lethal sandbags and smoke, to something more lethal like high-explosive grenades or even airburst munitions that can bring down a rogue elephant.  The perfect weapon for the dumb fox to back up his clever bunny.
