story of the human body

Body language vs Pheromones

More humans are weird: we are super into body language as a species. Like, we’re so into body language that we created cute pictograms to insert into our otherwise non-pictographic language specifically to add facial expressions to text communication. Which in and of its self is super cool. Most species have some form of this, like mating dances etc, but most of them also have pheromones to go with it. We do to, but we aren’t very good at sensing them or at least picking up that we’re sensing them. We rely on visual cues as our primary form of none-oral communication. So what if aliens are more pheromonal? Their body language is secondary to their chemical communication, so for instance they have a harder time flirting with someone across the room because they can’t smell/taste them. An alien and a human watch one of their friends at the bar interacting and the human say “we aren’t getting our drinks for a while, looks like Claire found herself a catch” and the alien is confused because how can you tell if she’s interested from across the room. You can see it on her face of course. Or! We describe some pheromonal cues visually, like when we describe pregnant women as glowing.
Human ‘Preeya looks amazing right now’
Alien ‘She seems rather tired right now actually’
Human 'Well, yeah, carrying a baby is hard, but she’s got that pregnant glow’
Alien (concerned) 'Do humans produce bioluminescence when they are pregnant? That was not in the books! She does not appear any brighter’
Human 'What no not literally, it’s just.. idk a thing pregnant women have. Like an aura of life’
Alien 'Oh you mean her pheromones. Got it.’
Human 'What? I can’t smell anything.’
Human Mike returns to ship after unsuccessful night at the bars
Mike: Hey guys I’m baaaaaack (slightly drunk singing)
Caro Lyssan: Hah, struck out huh?
Mike: What? Yeah this Caro chick was all over me one sec and then the Cupid Shuffle came on and when I started dancing to it she looked really grossed out and left. How could you tell?
Lyssan: You have rejection stink all over you man. Take a shower it’s making me sad
(The Cupid Shuffle is highly offensive in at least six cultures because shuffles are considered to be highly vulgar, similar to hip thrusting on earth)

Alien learns about Sign Language

[I saw some obvious errors and other confusing stuff and here is a better version]

Zort loved to learn about humans and has read many stories about humans, including about humans and body language

Zort has been studying human for years and finally gets to meet many humans at a human held conference about alien relationships.

Zort is excited, he learned of things like the “shrugs,” “smiles,” and even “glances.” So he can understand human better at the conference or as the human call it “Con.”

At the first day of the “Con,” Zort going to meet up with his designated liaison “Susan,” to start the day.

At the first panel on “Foods most species can consume.” Zort see a person standing to the side of the table at the front. As the people speak, that person make many hand motions.
Zort doesn’t understand this body language. He know of several uses of hands to communication, but this goes far beyond that. The person hand and arms move around a lot and touch their head and make motions around their head and chest and out. Zort was so fascinated he didn’t pay attention to the panel.

After the panel, Zort turns to Susan and ask “What was that person standing to the side doing? Their movement is more than what I know of the “body language” of humans.”

Susan does the face that Zort has learned means “confused, not understanding, puzzlement.” then her face changed to “understand, enlightenment.” and Susan says “Oh, right, as the panel went on, I forgot she was there. She is a sign language interpreter. She take what is spoken and translated into sign language so that deaf or hard of hearing people in the audience can understand.”

Zort “Deaf? Hard of hearing? There are being here who are like that? Being who are like that can only communicate through writing. The movement mean words?!”
Susan “Yes, the movement means words. They can communicate with writing, but when in a group it easier if some people can translate it into sometimes easier. It is a whole language using just hands.”
Susan holds up her right appendage and curls down the two fingers farthest from the thumb and with the two fingers closest and holding them together, brings them to the thumb. This means “No.”

moves her hands into a fist and moves the fist up and down “Yes.”

“Without moving the fist, just the hand like this means the letter A.” and B is… Wow, it’ s been a long time since I learned the sign language alphabet.”

Susan “Why don’t I see if the sign language interpreter would be willing to speak with you?”

Zort said “Yes, please let me speak with her.” Then remembered that nodding with one head can mean “Yes.” and to show eagerness and moved its large head up and down many times to show how much he wanted this. Which causes several being around to move a little away from Zort.

He’s also AMAZING with children as shown [here - skip to 12:17 and WATCH you won’t regret it] and dogs too! All animals really. He’s Korean Snow White. With abs. And if Snow White was extra. 

Also the kindest soul ever. He’s always smiling, even when he’s down. He literally said, and I quote; “No matter how difficult something is, I will always be positive and smile like an idiot.” His then-girlfriend nicknamed him “Happy Virus.” Constantly buys his members gifts, is very tall (well over six feet), and he’s the most extroverted and sociable person - actually friends with everyone. 10/10 amazing human.

His wit is unparalleled like omg, so sassy and hilarious and sharp. Also a huge nerd when it comes to anime, manga, and video games. Once gave a picture of himself to another member as a gift, the lil shit.  

He’s incredibly passionate about his career and his members, and I think it was Kyungsoo who said that it’s Baek who keeps them all together at times. In summary: Byun Baekhyun is what happens when a demon and an angel do the do. 

D.O./Do Kyungsoo:

Do Kyungsoo? More like Do Me, Kyungsoo. I’m sorry I’m so thirsty Ksoo…I don’t even know where to begin with this one. First of all, he single-handedly saved the human race from extinction with his voice. He’s savage af, so much so that he’s affectionately nicknamed “Satansoo” and he will smack a bitch. He’s also so soft and squishy at the same time, you’ll get whiplash. And his acTING. Lord in heaven. And I believe he didn’t even have acting lessons?? The nerve of him. He, too, is sex on legs, and he might be quieter than the others, but y’all best listen when he talks cause boy bout to spill the tea. 

He’s also very paternal in that he takes care of the other members a lot, like when Kai, his roommate, isn’t feeling well, he’ll care for him or go out to get food for him. And he can cook really well. I’m gonna stop now before I end up writing an entire dissertation ;’)

Oh my god. Anyway. Zhang Yixing is the perfect contradiction. On the one hand, he’s an actual baby lamb - laugh and all. On the other hand, he’s the human embodiment of the NC-17 rating. Like, hide yo kids. Yixing is also one of the Chinese members of EXO, so he often leaves to promote his solo music which is in Chinese, and he works so incredibly hard and deserves all the success. He also writes the lyrics, and composes and arranges the music! 

And…his dancing. Proof that god exists. There is literally no part of his body that Yixing does not have absolute command over - and you can see it because he is so precise, confident, and sexy. :’)

Yup. Moving on. 

Actually, back to his face (and the rest of him): Remember when Da Vinci was conceptualizing the Vitruvian Man (lol only 90′s kids will remember…1490′s kids, that is). You know that picture of the guy with another pair of arms and legs superimposed on him, inside a circle? The drawing theorizing the ideal proportions of the human body? Yup, true story: Junmyeon was Da Vinci’s muse. Suho’s face is so symmetrical, it inspired mathematicians to write the golden ratio. He is a genetic miracle, a statistical outlier, a national treasure–

Anyway *sweats*. ALSO. Let’s talk about his personality. Myeon is the mom of EXO, the leader, so he’s naturally very parental. He actually chose the stage name “Suho” because it means guardian. He always does his best to keep his kids the members together and doing what they need to be doing. Always pays for things ($Junmoney$), and is the person a lot of them confide in and go to for comfort or advice, especially Sehun. 

He’s such a dad too - like his dad joke ratings are off the charts. 10/10 would build you a tree house and tuck you in at night. 

Oh Sehun

Maknae. Icon. Legend. Used to have a lisp. 

People sometimes think he’s cold or reserved because of his face, but as you can see in the gif, he’s literal sunshine. He once cried on stage because he was knocked on the head by a camera - but he wasn’t crying because the injury hurt, he was crying because he wasn’t allowed to perform because of it, and he felt like he was disappointing his fans. He also cried during a radio show when asked about his other members - he said every night before he falls asleep, he prays for them and he prays that they all stay together and are successful and happy. And now I’m crying. 

Everyone is in love with him

His dancing resurrected me from the dead, put my children through college, and ended world hunger because damn we are fed when that boy moves. 

Sehun was once invited to Paris for a Louis Vuitton fashion show and became king of France. I’m not kidding. All he did was show up, and there was a huge crowd already there to greet him as if he were royalty, and he was voted best dressed at the show by Vogue. He went to the Louvre, and people were studying and appreciating him, the actual art.

Ah, little dino bby. He’s iconic for many reasons: 

1) His smile. It curls up at the corners like this :}

2) When he laughs, he literally goes HAHAHAHAHA like wow, amazing, I want this as my ringtone

3) He screams a lot. Nickelodeon once made a show about him called Jongdae: The Last Pterodactyl

4) HIS VOCALS. Un-freaking-believable. He’s the male version of Mariah Carey. 

5) Speaks really good Chinese! (He’s Korean) 

6) An amazing human?? He donates to charity so often and he doesn’t do it for publicity either. He takes good care of the other members too. 

Jongdae, let me put a ring on it.

Minseok. The eldest. Also known as the best person to ever exist. Like Kyungsoo, he doesn’t talk much because he’s a shy lil bean, but once he warms up to you, the things that come out of his mouth are so deep and cute and funny and wowow I want ten of him

Is the least likely to cry

Was chubby (and so adorable!!) as a little kid, and now he has a six pack. Because of his weight as a kid though, he has spoken many times about the issue of body shaming and how people’s perceptions of a person shift based on how they look. He once said these words that made my cold, dead heart beat again: “I don’t have an ideal type. If our hearts match well, then she will look pretty to me.” 

Has the strongest arms in EXO. They all arm wrestled and he won and it was the funniest thing ever. 

Is not only an idol, he’s also getting his Ph.D. Dr. Kim. I can’t believe….

Wants to open his own coffee shop, and I don’t drink coffee, but I would chug any dish-water-coffee-grinds-filth that he would serve me because damn I love him.

His laugh. Astounding. Also don’t stand too close when he laughs because he will hit you. It’s just what he does lmao

He’s basically a hip young old man - so hot but so sleepy. He’ll sleep at any given opportunity. 

Very fond of fried chicken. And dogs. But not in terms of eating, for the latter

Learned ballet for ten years and it shows, and I just wANT TO SEE HIM IN A LEOTARD DAMMIT

He has darker skin than the other members which people used to make fun of him for and still do comment on, but he says he loves it and he is proud of his body :’) we are too bby!!

Other random facts

EXO originally had 12 members but 3 left and we’re not going to talk about it okay? okay

- Chen and Xiumin are married best friends. Xiumin actually said in an interview that Chen is “like my wife” 

- Sehun is now officially Lord Oh Sehun of Glencoe, Scotland because his fans are the most Extra and purchased the estate for his birthday :’)

- Baekhyun can’t cook for shit but at least he’s pretty 

- Kai dated F(X)’s Krystal 

- Kyungsoo once said to the camera that he is “not pure” 

- Yixing starred in a gay sci-fi movie where he and this other dude have a baby

- Suho is a health nut. Just like how girls always have pads and tampons on them, Suho has multivitamins 

For @the-porcelain-doll-xo because I’m the friend that wants to drag you into hell with me, and I can’t wait for you to get into EXO ahhhhh ily <33

Changelings Are Forgetful Too

I’ve heard stories of humans losing themselves to the Fair Folk. Not just their bodies, but their minds. Losing the memories of ever being human and becoming more fae than anything else. I always thought the stories were exaggerated. They had to be. Even the most extreme cases of amnesia couldn’t take all of someone’s memories.

My grandma was the main person who told me those stories. She was the smartest person in my family, and the only one before me to go to college. The rest of my family thought she was crazy, with all her talk of faeries and their world. I always loved her stories, and I inherited both her knowledge and her Sight before she died. Most of her old charms found homes in my friends and the rest of my family, though. Especially the iron ones. They always gave me the creeps.

When I was accepted to Elsewhere University, I was happier than I had ever been. It was my grandma’s school, you see. It felt like going home, to be learning at the same school she did.

The stories of the Fair Folk whispered across campus only heightened my excitement.

To my dismay, however, I rarely interacted with the Fair Folk. I left my offerings, I spoke kindly, I even kept my pockets free of protection charms like the other students did! Why didn’t the Fair Folk speak to me?!

I’m… kind of ashamed to say that I went looking for them. I was just upset, I swear! I’m not suicidal or anything. I’m just in the theater a lot since that’s my major, and the Fair Folk hold court there more often than not.

They were… surprised to see me. I was late, according to them.

Turn out those stories about humans losing their memories and becoming mostly fae weren’t as exaggerated as I thought.

Once, a long time ago, my grandma promised one of her grandchildren in exchange for the life of the man who would become her husband.

Now I’m making plans to extend my degree, and trying to think of a good way to explain that I found my real family to the humans who raised me.

Yes, everyone has issues, but hers didn’t come to the surface until she started dating Sebastian. She knew that she was lucky. He was hot, clever, and the new obsession teenage girls and young women were drooling over. She couldn’t but feel even more insecure whenever she saw him surrounded by women more attractive than she was. Each part of her that she actually liked was ripped away from her as she saw women with the same characteristics and qualities, but seemingly ten times more beautiful than she was.

Im sorry, but The Major's cyborg body being Asian would work against the meaning of Ghost in the Shell, the idea of having your identity ripped away from you is lessened when your fake body looks like your real body. I can understand being angry at a movie like Death Note when an entire cast of obvious Japanese characters are turned American, but The Major's body is manufactured to the will of someone else, she had no freedom of choice.

Because a Japanese woman is representative of all Asians right?

Let’s look at some source material:

  • In the philosophy section, it says, “What exactly is the definition of human in a society where a mind can be copied and the body replaced with a fully synthetic body? What, exactly, is the ‘ghost’ – the essence – in the cybernetic ‘shell’? Where is the boundary between human and machine when the differences between the two become more philosophical than physical?”

Nowhere does it state in its philosophy that it’s about “the idea of having your identity ripped away from you is lessened when your fake body looks like your real body.” BUT if we decide to go by your argument, we actually don’t know what Motoko’s “real” body looks like therefore, ANY Japanese woman can play as her and it would not lesson the theme of having one’s mind being copied and/or body replaced. As long as the body itself is fully synthetic that’s all that matters, which does NOT rule out the idea that any Japanese woman can play as her.

  • In the humanity section, it says, “Throughout the story the cyborg characters, being more or less a human brain with a manufactured body, contemplate individually and together what being human really is, and how a soul or ghost is truly defined.”

As you can see, it’s not about how one’s manufactured body looks like, it’s about finding out what being human is and how their ghost (consciousness) is defined, during a time where minds and bodies can be copied and replaced. So for the second time, Motoko can be played by a Japanese woman and it would not take away from these themes.

Now, let’s go into some background setting to see if Motoko should be white:

  • In the setting section, it says, “The series focuses on Japan, but several other nations figure prominently in some stories. The world of Ghost in the Shell features significant advances in technology. …  Japan is a major world power, having gained equal footing with the descendant countries of the former United States. This status is very much the result of its scientific and technological prowess…”

So we can confirm the entire story takes place in future Japan and is based on its scientific and technological advances. NOT in America, NOT in any country in Europe, and NOT in any other predominately white country.

  • It later says, “The demographics of Japan have been shaken by the post-war influx of Asian refugees…and leads to ethnic tensions. Their presence and status constitute a major national political issue.”

So not only is the Americanized movie wrong with all those white people, but it should be full of mostly Asian people, especially of other ethnic groups in addition to Japanese.

  • The setting also says that, “The American Empire is the only successor state to play a major role in world politics. Its government seems driven by a desire to restore its diminished power and prestige, towards which end it adopts a policy of militarist aggression and open imperialism, directed primarily against Latin America. …  Due to war damage inflicted on its economy and its weakened political position, the American Empire enters into a security pact with Japan.”

From this, we can conclude that America is somewhat “weaker” than Japan in terms of political and economical power (and technology) and is directing its military aggression and imperialism primarily on Latin America.

  • There is NO mention of Europe “except” for the Russo-American Alliance and the Ameri-Soviet Union, both of which were originally part of the US. There is NO mention of any other predominately white country either.

So overall, it’s difficult to logically comprehend and assume that Motoko should be white, both in the source material and in the Americanized movie. If we are going by a logical assumption, it would be safer to assume Motoko is Japanese. I mean come on, how many white “Motoko Kusanagis” do you know?

Now, let’s talk about the Americanized movie *SPOILERS*:

That is literally the textbook definition of whitewashing. I know you’re probably angry now but sorry. Welcome to my world by the way.

Angry Asian Guy

The biology of woman in fact holds the key to the story of the
human race. The triumph of evolution occurred in the female body,
in one critical development that secured the future of the species. This
was the biological shift from primate oestrus, when the female comes
on heat, to full human menstruation. Although generally unsung,
indeed unmentioned, female monthly menstruation was the evolutionary adaptation that preserved the human species from extinction and ensured its survival and success.

For female oestrus in the higher primates is a highly inefficient
mechanism. The great female primates, chimpanzees, gorillas and
orangutans, come on heat rarely, and produce one infant every five or
six years. This puts the whole species dangerously at risk of extinction,
and the great apes today survive only in small numbers and in
the most favorable environments. With twelve chances of conceiving
in every year, instead of one every five years, the human female has a
reproductive capacity sixty times higher than that of her primate sisters. Menstruation, not hunting, was the great evolutionary leap forward. It was through a female adaptation, not a male one, that ‘man’ throve, multiplied and conquered the globe.

Last Samurai Jack Theory

It’s a hallucination

After Jack ate the fish at the market. (They really harped on him chewing that thing.) It progresses from there.

The random but temporary transformation in a fish head, the rapid pace of events, the virtually NO plot. The absolute HALT in the story. Ashi’s ignorance of the human body, sexual experience and suddenly knowing how to kiss. (That wasn’t rubbing noses) all a hallucination and manifestation of Jack’s sexual frustration over the years. 

Next episode starts with them kissing, then the sound of Ashi’s voice calling his attention. He had passed out before they got on the camel and the story progresses from there. He’s acting silly and she’s looking at him all confused and he realized he needs to focus.

They purposefully don’t show Ashi in the next preview. Because if she’s still in her green dress, then it’s a dream.

This doesn’t cancel out his care or concern for her, it’s just a possible theory.

ORRR I could be totally off and damn they fucked all night and she pregnant.
Either way

anonymous asked:

Hi! I'm writing a fantasy series about six teenagers who survive a shipwreck and wash up on an island where their dreams (and nightmares) come true. This is set present-day. I was wondering if you had any survivalist tips on how to make it more realistic. This could include like how long people can survive without water / food / sun poisoning / etc, basically anything that teenagers stranded on an island would face to make the story a lot more plausible even though it's magical realism. :)

Hi, I’d be happy to help!

People can live without food for three weeks at maximum, although those three weeks would by no means be pleasant. They would experience symptoms of malnutrition, which include but undoubtedly are not limited to: dropping weight, fatigue and physical weakness, mental confusion and poor concentration, bleeding from the mouth and gums, changes in mood such as lethargy and irritability, and (after, say, a week or so with no food whatsoever) a loss of any appetite at all (source).

Water, however, is a completely different story. Because the human body is about 60% water, humans need to take in water on a regular basis to keep our blood thin enough to circulate and to expel toxins by way of sweat/urination. A human could survive three days without water, and the last two to two and a half of them would be miserable. They would suffer from dehydration, symptoms of which include thirst, decreased urine output, darker urine, dry mouth, decreased sweat output, muscle cramps, nausea/vomiting, heart palpitations/a higher heart rate, lightheadedness (especially when standing), confusion, and physical weakness. If they don’t get water in time, organ failure will take place, leading to death (source).

Sun poisoning (also called photodermatitis), is “a form of allergic contact in which the allergen must be activated by light to sensitize the allergic response, and to cause a rash or other systemic effects on subsequent exposure”. Syptoms include skin tenderness, fever and/or chills, nausea, fatigue, dizziness, and dehydration. Although it’s rare for victims of sun poisoning to die, the condition shouldn’t be taken lightly, because it can lead to “various levels of damage and deterioration of the skin”.

Don’t forget to take wildlife into account (vegetation as well, but we’ll get to that in a second). What, if any, animals live on the island? Are they dangerous, or do they live and let live? Since your island is a magical place, it’s possible wildlife doesn’t live there – I’m sure your characters’ nightmares would be a sufficient enough challenge without adding carnivorous beasts (although you definitely can, if you’d like to!).

Vegetation would also be good to check into – depending on how long your characters are on the island, they’ll need to eat something, or they’ll die (even if they’re not on the island long enough to die of malnutrition, how can they fight and win if they’re weak with hunger)? Tropical vegetation (I’m just assuming your island is tropical) is more diverse than vegetation in other ecosystems, due to the year-round warm climates, and often is brightly-colored – which, don’t forget, can mean danger or poison. So your characters should be careful of what plants they eat, lest they accidentally poison themselves.

I think that’s it. I hope this helps! If you need anything else, please feel free to ask! - @authors-haven

Maybe I’m mislead (or just go online too much), but I think making characters with sexual attributes can be great to overall character design and I do wish it wasn’t always shrunken down to just being fanservice.
That isn’t to say that some characters really don’t need it and may be better without it, but I think if it’s important to the overall themes of the story then it’s great.
There’s a difference between utilizing the human body or just sex in general in character design (such as bayonetta) and then there’s the act of thinking “this character isn’t interesting enough, so let’s make their ass hang out to appeal to a wider audience” (Many mainstream anime).
But even then, it isn’t exactly the crime against humanity many adult people see it as (both the people who take themselves too seriously to enjoy it, and the people who think that it’s making entertainment go down the drain).

The reason that Overwatch gets more flack than, say, League of Legends, on attractive characters is just due to whether or not they are playing the cards appropriately. That’s why people got upset over the tracer pose thing, because it wasn’t necessary for her character and it was just a “oh, come on, really?” moment. It fit widowmaker better, whose nuance is very sultry and seductive.

But games like League of Legends have over a hundred characters and kind of need to use sex appeal and attraction, because it’s pretty much all the majority who play the game really knows about the characters. Hell, they make sexy Valentine’s Day skins of both male and female characters and make funny quizzes on who would be your hot girl/boy date

I know that Tumblr is an echo chamber as it is but I just like to note what I’m thinking. I dislike seeing people turn down a game because the characters are tastefully sexual, and I also see the frustration when people argue too much for thinks being sexual that they don’t see the difference between sex appeal and sexualization. One character can be a number of things PLUS being sexy, but another character could be everything just to have their sex appeal shrink them down to just that–being sexy.

Why is it that like 80% of your stories are about insects and worms and shit like that in human bodies? I mean yeah that's unsettling but it becomes too predictable after a while like I'll sometimes know what the story is about just from its title (like the one with exotic food or the girl with acne) cause you use this so often. I mean dude I really don't wanna sound rude or something but maybe enough of bug horror?

Maybe you should read the 150-or-so that aren’t about those things.

Hello! First, I wanted to say that I love your blog, great job you do here (。・ω・。)ノ♡ now to my question: it's about finn's body, I noticed how he has a lot of stitches, can we know the story? and is his body still function like a human being??

thank you! <3

Finn does have a lot of stitches, which is from the fact that before the virus dropped Finn was already dead! The chemicals which were pumped into his body postmortem kicked it back into gear once the heart gained a healthy amount of the stuff. His body doesn’t work as well as a human being’s can, it’s slowed down and he lacks much of a pulse which causes him to bleed slowly when injured and cut off circulation easier should he lose a limb. The stitches are what sort of keep the flesh in place after dissection, and can be redone should there ever be a force strong enough to knock off an arm or a leg. 

Something that medical records cannot explain, however, is the remarkable and sickening ability he has to keep living if his head should ever detach from his body.

ABC’s of Shapeshifter Lore

S is for Selkie: Selkies (also spelled silkies, selchies; Irish/Scottish Gaelic: selchidh, Scots: selkie fowk) are mythological creatures found in Scottish, Irish, and Faroese folklore. Similar creatures are described in the Icelandic traditions. The word derives from earlier Scots selich, (from Old English seolh meaning seal). Selkies are said to live as seals in the sea but shed their skin to become human on land. The legend is apparently most common in Orkney and Shetland and is very similar to those of swan maidens.

Male selkies are described as being very handsome in their human form, and having great seductive powers over human women. They typically seek those who are dissatisfied with their life, such as married women waiting for their fishermen husbands. If a woman wishes to make contact with a selkie male, she must shed seven tears into the sea. If a man steals a female selkie’s skin she is in his power and is forced to become his wife. Female selkies are said to make excellent wives, but because their true home is the sea, they will often be seen gazing longingly at the ocean. If she finds her skin she will immediately return to her true home, and sometimes to her selkie husband, in the sea. Sometimes, a selkie maiden is taken as a wife by a human man and she has several children by him. In these stories, it is one of her children who discovers her sealskin (often unwitting of its significance) and she soon returns to the sea. The selkie woman usually avoids seeing her human husband again but is sometimes shown visiting her children and playing with them in the waves.

It's funny, I was just re-reading Son of Man because of the updated cover and I realised the reason the adjustment-to-humanity scenes were familiar is because they reminded me of the bits in Reaper Man and Thief of Time with Death and Myria

Which is so interesting, because the Death books are the Discworld books that I have the weakest relationship to – I rarely read them and when I do I tend to find them a bit impenetrable (especially Thief of Time, which apparently is in part because I haven’t seen Reservoir Dogs). But at the same time I also think the Death books were a series of really great studies in something that interests me a lot, which is the deconstruction of mythology. The Death books are constant examinations of human ritual and its purpose, and I love that, but I still struggle a lot with the books themselves. 

I do think Son Of Man is in some ways an examination of human ritual, on its way to the major point, which was to turn the Pinocchio idea on its head. I wanted to write about an artificial intelligence that didn’t want to be human – I love stories of artificial intelligences that gain bodies, don’t get me wrong, and Data and his burning desire to understand humanity was my favorite Star Trek character ever. I just thought it would be really fun to reverse that idea – but in so doing of course you have to bring a sort of alien viewpoint to humanity, which is where the exploring-what-being-a-human means stuff comes in. 

Perhaps it’s partly that Death, like JARVIS, is the creation of humanity, but doesn’t, in the end, want to be human. And I think it’s a challenge to write that, because as humans we don’t like the idea of our circumstances of existence being rejected.

Bad boy 2

Hey there so here goes part 2 for my fanfic with Eric!!! Hope you like it! It’s going to be shorter than yesterday’s but I’ll do my best!!!

If you didn’t read part 1 you sould so you can read it by pressing this title -> Bad Boy

Hope you enjoy it!!!

After a couple of hours you and Peter went back to bed and you felt more confident and less irritated, the physical activity had helped you to get rid of some of the stress you had and you were quite tired. 

As soon as you got to the room you got changed and dropped on the bed.

“You’re not quite what they are going to expect” Peter said from his bed in a whisper.

“I just hope I’m good enough to pass” you said.

“Well if we keep doing this you definitely will”

“Where did you learn to fight?” You asked him.

“I don’t really know how to fight, I’m just strong.”

“I think you will be in the Top 3″ you said holding back a yawn.

“I know I’m going to be on the Top3″ he said. 

“I’m glad we trained.”

“Same. Goodnight”

“Goodnight” you whispered as you fell asleep.

“Good morning initiates!!! Time to get up and get some work done” Being woken up by Eric’s deafening screams.

You groaned and got up, you didn’t really like the idea of changing in front of everyone so you just made an effort and turned around. You got changed and turned around again as Christina and Tris joined you.

“Are you ready for today?” Christina asked.

“Guess so” Tris muttered.

Let’s say the training wasn’t too gentle with any of you. By the end of it there wasn’t a single part of you which didn’t ache.

You had been very silent the whole day, truth be told, your behaviour from the previous day wasn’t too common. 

It took you a while to adapt and gain confidence in new places, and until you did you were shy. The previous day had been an exception because you were quite overwhelmed by everything going on. You had been focusing the whole day. You needed to learn everything you could before the tests started. Well, tests or whatever they were called in Dauntless.

While you punched and ran you remembered, remembered about the days spent in Erudition, reading about Divergents, about the human body and its limits, about love stories, fantasy, drama.

You had always been extremely interested on Divergents, discovering you were one of them shocked you and worried you.

You knew your initiation would be divided in two parts, and if you managed to pass the first one, you were worried about what would happen after.

You would have to be extremely careful with your actions during the second phase, you knew no one would help you.

That line of thoughts was stopped everytime Eric or Four would scream you were changing the activity.

When you finally finished training you went straight to your room. You showered taking advantage of being alone at that hour and got ready to go to have dinner. When the time came you headed towards the room and sat in the same place as the previous day.

You ate the same, but absentmindely, you couldn’t stop thinking, thinking about what Eric had said, about not passing, about training with Peter that night.

“Y/N?” Christina said snapping her fingers before your eyes.

“Yes?” You asked snapping out of your thoughts.

“You’ve been off the whole day, is something wrong?”

“No, don’t worry, I’m just tired” you said forcing a smile.

“Well, we all are, they are fucking crazy I mean, how can they possibly think we are going to get through this?” she asked. You chuckled. “We are going for a walk after dinner, maybe get some tattoes, are you coming?”

“I think I’ll just stay away from those for a while thank you very much” you said with a smile.

“You scared pumpkin?” a voice said behind you.

You just turned around and didn’t answer, you really didn’t know how to answer You were a sarcastic person, but you didn’t feel confident to talk back.

“Just sleepy” you muttered and turned back around.

“You are aware he only talks to you right?” Will asked.

“Yeah I know, I’m the only one who managed to piss him off the first day” you said. “I’m really that lucky”.

By that time all of you had finished eating.

“Are you sure you don’t want to come with us?” Tris asked.

“Yeah, sorry, I promise I’ll go with you another day”

After that they left and you headed to the room, there were some people there, about five initiates, Peter among them.

“Hi there” he said dropping himself on your bed.

“Thanks for making yourself at home.” you said laughing.

“I knew you were dying for it” he said.

“Wow, didn’t think I was so obvious” you muttered as you sat on the bed.

“Same time as yesterday?” he asked.

“Yeah, but I think we should just train for an hour.”

“Agree. I’ll wake you up” he said jumping off the bed.

You covered your body with the sheets and sighed as you felt your muscles relax.

Your whole body ached and you didn’t remember being so tired ever. After training with both, Peter and the group for days you felt exhausted.

You turned out to be quite good at throwing knives and specially good at shooting. Your aim was quite good but aparently Eric thought otherwise.

“You need to rest more of the weapon’s weight on your shoulder” he said behind you.

You tried to change your position but you didn’t quite get how to do that without losing the hability to aim correctly.

“Your aim is pretty good but you need to improve the position.” he took the hand which you used to keep the weapon steady and put it away from it. “Start by putting the shotgun’s butt on your shoulder and adapt your arm and hand  from there” he said pressing the shotgun’s butt against your shoulder and putting your arm aroung the weapon himself. “Now it’s better”

“Thank you” you muttered. His touch had made you really nervous, it made you feel bubbly and you weren’t used to that so you just tried to supress your excitement and aimed at the target. Right in the middle.

“Nice on pumpkin, maybe you’ll even manage to pass the first round although your likely to lose even your first fight.” It amazed you how he was capable of ruining the nice thing he said with a rude one, he somehow managed to make the critic rough enough just to make you forget about the compliment.

Next day the fighting started, and let’s just say it wasn’t nice. Eric didn’t make you fight but Tris ended up pretty bad and so did most people who fought that day.

That night you forced Peter to make some promises. The both of you promised that if the two of you had to fight against eachother neither of you would go easy on the other one. The other one wouldn’t get mad. Each of you would have to do their best. You were becoming pretty attached to Peter, and that was never a good thing.

After seeing Peter fight three times you had learnt his moves. You knew how he played around and tried to fool his enemies. He hadn’t seen you fight against a person yet, so that was positive for you.

“Y/N and Peter” Four said “Your turn” You were pretty worried. You needed to win this or you would have trouble passing the line.

“Let’s see what are you made of pumpkin” Eric whispered as you walked past him.

You knew Peter would try to move first so you didn’t bother to try to start. He was right-handed so you knew what side he would attack from first.

When you saw him start to move to the side you hurried to move to the opposite side and kicked him as hard as you could on his stomach, he flinched for a second and then went back to the fight.

He tried to  kick you this time, but you managed to move away in time. After that he aimed at  your fight ant managed to make you tumble, you threw at him a couple of punches which landed on his side and neck and somehow he managed to make you fall and pin you to the floor.

Before he punched you square on the face you kicked him as hard as you could between the legs and got him off you. You would need him to pass out in order to win. You started running through your memories looking for something useful as you pinned him against the matress.

You knew you wouldn’t manage to keep him there for too long so as soon as you saw he was about to make you fall you stood up fastly.

You remembered there is a point in your neck which, if pressed correctly and for the right amount of time has the ability to knock out someone.

When he stood up you jumped on his back and as he stumbled for some seconds you got on arm around his neck and the other one looked for the point. As soon as you found it you pressed and counted. You knew Peter was desesperating so he started to try to get you off. After forty seconds he passed out and fell backwards, which made you be squeezed between his heavy body and the matress.

You groaned as the pain ran through your back. Got Peter off you and got him sitting down.

“Training is over for today” Eric shouted and everyone left in a hurry as Christina and Tris smiled at you and waited at the door.

“Four please, take Peter to the infirmary.”

“Can I go with him?” you started to ask but Eric cut you off fast.

“I need to talk to you first.” you made some signs to Tris and Christina telling them to leave, they smiled at you reassuringly and left.

As soon as the two of you were alone your body tensed.

“Where did you learn to do that ?” he asked you.

“I read about it” you said.

“Come with me”


“You are bleeding, I’m taking you to the infirmary.” he said.

“I’m not…” You started to say but then noticed the taste of blood in your mouth.

“You shouldn’t be friends with that boy” he said.

“Why would you say that?”

“He isn’t going to be happy when he wakes up. He needs to be the first one, and everything which represents a threat will be destroyed by him if he has the chance.

“Well I need to be sure he actually gets mad”

“You just knocked him out, he is definitely going to be mad.” He said.

“What if he isn’t?” you said just as your teeth scratched a cut on your lip and you let out a groan.

Eric turned around and held your chin firmly, yet gently, you almost felt like he cared. Almost.

“Well he managed to get you pretty injured before he passed out. And what you just said show a part of you still belongs to Amity. You need to see the good in people. and you aren’t going to find it here.” he said as he ran his thumb along one of your wounds.

“I’d never go back to Amity, and if people don’t even have the chance to show who they are we’d never do anything because it would change nothing. There’s evil in us, most of us are evil but if we don’t give value to kindness or goodness it will eventually disappear.”

“Maybe there’s no kindness to save anymore” he replied as he started walking again.

“Maybe there’s never been any kindness to save” you said as you started walking too. You finally reached the nursery and after one of the nurses healed your cuts you saw Eric leaning on the doorframe.

“You are staying until he wakes up right?” he asked.

“He should wake up already so it’s no big deal, probably he is just sleeping due to the exhaustment”

“Well congratulations for that move, the fight was pretty amazing although you probably won’t pass the second fight.” he said as he turned around and left.

He was pushing you further, and you wouldn’t break.

some old doods of this HumanBill of mine

just wears some kind of poncho suit and 97% sure he aint got a body underneath it

Dead Body Encounter


i was in the 8th grade. Me and my robotics team were heading out for the Vex Iq state competition. we were lining up to board the bus and we all got in.

I get into a good seat and started tumblring on my phone ( If that what we call it.)

we stopped at a gas station and got some food.

My phone died on the way there and I had to charge so I was left bored out of my mind.

My team and I got off the bus and went to McDonalds. I got some coffie. was good.My pone charged up while we were there.

I started listening to anime and monster cat music. It got late and it was 9 pm till we got to Cici’s pizza and ate like beast since we were starving. Tampa is farther tan you think it is. :/. we left Cici’s and went to road way inn which is THE WORST PLACE TO STAY OVER NIGHT. You’ll see why soon.

My teammates and I where in groups and were sent to bed. my roomates were Havier & Wamario ( It’s a wierd name to give to a kid in MY OPINION). We went up stairs to our rooms, but I went to the balcony were I could see the pool……..\

The I saw it……

There was a dead body in the pool. I ran back to my room as fast as my legs can run. But I regretted it… MY ROOM WAS COVERED IN BLOOD. I felt noxious. thankfully our team manager called us to go to a different hotel. Back on the bus, my teammates told each other how bad their rooms were. we all laughed and were scared af.

Moral of the story… don’t stay at road way inn.
