surrogate mother

4

When two white tiger cubs were born during a hurricane they had to be separated from their mother after their sanctuary flooded.

However they have since found an unlikely surrogate mother in chimpanzee Anjana, who has taken on the role of caring for the cubs.

The two-year-old chimp has been helping keeper China York care for the 21-day-old cubs at The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (TIGERS) in South Carolina. She gives them a bottle, lies with them and acts as a surrogate mother. She has a close contact and bond and gives them a nurturing. (Source)

@miraculousfluffmonth day 23: Sick Day

Nathalie had never been known as a nurturing person; even in her formative years, she had been aloof and never expressed much interest in others.

It went without saying, then, that she’d never wanted children. They were a handful and a burden beyond measure. Maybe to some, there was merit, but never to her. When the Agrestes had hired her on as a secretary (and an act of mercy), she’d had little to do with the affairs of their newborn son.

Adrien, as it had turned out, held different ideas about the role that Nathalie played in his life. She’d been quick to school him out of the “Auntie Nathalie” thing (where did he even pick that up?) and had done her best to keep him at arms’ length. Adrien, as a messy and rambunctious little boy, embodied everything that turned her off from the idea of having children.

But when Tara vanished and Gabriel all but shut both Nathalie and Adrien (and everyone else) out of his personal life, she couldn’t help but feel a prick of spite that drove her to side with Adrien in the standoff. He’d done nothing wrong, and, for God’s sake, Gabriel was his father. He had no right to close himself off to a teenage son who depended on his presence.

Scheduling around Adrien to spite Gabriel was an art form. Adrien was good at wearing his heart on his sleeve, and the torrent of relief and gratitude that swept out from him at even the smallest of accommodations was overwhelming.

Much as she was loath to admit it, he had grown on her. She finally accepted her fate when he caught a cold and, instead of her clocking back out at the first signs of his hacking cough to avoid getting ill herself, she ushered him straight back to bed. Worse than that, she remained there with him, running her hand in a circle over his too-warm back while rescheduling every item on his calendar into the next week.

She’d never wanted children and yet a child still found her, and she found she had no desire to push him away. 

Reasons why Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator is very important

-Casual gay dads! Casual gayness! The storyline is written in the same way a hetero story would be written, with no fear or shame for being gay!!!!

-Character can be gay or bi. You choose in the beginning whether your deceased spouse was male or female, and you also choose whether your daughter was adopted or born to you. (via surrogate mother if you have a husband!)

-Story lines are not straight-forward. Especially certain characters. Sometimes you have to work harder to get the Dad of your Dreams

-Story is super realistic and wonderful. It’s so simple and yet magical.

-YOUR. RELATIONSHIP. WITH. YOUR. DAUGHTER. IS. AMAZING.

-I started the game knowing not much about Gothic lifestyles or wrestling or some stuff, but I have found that death is beautiful, being super healthy can be bad for you, people who are passionate about things are adorable, if you shit on someone’s passion, you belong in hell, and love can be very simple or atrociously complicated. 

-You can fall in love with anyone, even if you don’t necessarily have the same interests.

-Quality Dad Puns

“My mom is better than yours” - Batmom x Damian Wayne

Summary : The Kent family have invited your family over for dinner, and of course, as usual, Damian and Jon don’t quite…behave. 

I just wanted to write a short little cute fic with Damian and his mama because I just love the idea of Damian being super proud of his Batmom and blahblahblah maybe it’s a bit too long sorry. I hope you will like it

My masterlist blog : https://ella-ravenwood-archives.tumblr.com

_________________________________________________

Bruce thought it was extremely cute, how Damian’s eyes always seem to shine when looking at you. How his face brightens. Even how ashamed he is when you scold him when he’s too cocky, or simply being a plain brat. 

The kid thought you were just the best damn thing on this planet. 

He admired everything you did…

The Batman had to admit it, sometimes, he was a bit jealous. 

But mostly, he just thought it was really cute, to see his boy completely accepting you as his mother. Hell, he was even calling you “Mama” (damn period dramas) now !

You were the one he considered his mom (Talia actually tried to kill you a few times because of that, jealous beyond everything of you and the love “her” son seemed to have for you…She tried harder when Damian told her that she was “never his mom”, that you showed him what a real mother was, and also, when she realized how in love Bruce was with you, while she had to drug him to get him to sleep with her…Yeah, pretty jealous. You always pulled through though, mostly thanks to your boys, husband and superfriends).

Well, to be honest, he never doubted the fact that you’d get along with him. You had a special effect on people. If you really put your mind to it, you can convince anyone to do what you want, you can win anyone’s heart in a little flutter of your damn beautiful eyelashes…

When Damian first met you, he was most disagreeable, and you…grounded him. “Young man, in your room, no dessert for you tonight”, and he was so stunned that he did it, though he didn’t even listen to his father at the time, and thought he knew everything better than everyone ! He knew you only for a few minutes, and he already had more respect for you than for anyone else. 

Sometimes, Bruce suspected that you might be a meta-human, because the power you could have over people with your magnificent aura was…something. But he tested you in every way possible, and he had to admit that, you were just like him. A simple human. A simple human with incredible abilities. 

Yes. Bruce always thought it was extremely cute the way his son, your son to the both of you, almost worshipped you. 

Well, your older kids did too. Again, there was just a way about you…

You started dating Bruce when he first took young Richard Grayson in, about twelve years ago (right after Talia drugged him actually), when he was barely 8 years old and heartbroken because of his parents’ death…And though you were merely twenty, quite younger than Bruce really, you took your job as a surrogate mother for Dick very seriously. Quickly, the boy asked you if he could call you mom, if his own mother would be mad and…well, the hug you gave him was answer enough. Though he was twenty and had his own flat in Bludhaven now, Dick was still quite the momma’s boy. 

It was pretty much the same with Jason. You winked at him and told him it was pretty cool and brave to try and steal the batmobile’s wheels, and boom, you had him wrapped around your little fingers. He lived for your bedtime stories and cuddle when he had trouble sleeping. 

Tim was even easier to treat you like his mom. After only a few months he was already introducing you as his mother, and that was that. Just natural. Unlike Jason and Dick, his birth mother wasn’t exactly…the best, and you gave him a chance to have a real mom. One that would die for her son, do anything for him,  even if it meant staying up all night to sing him soothing songs while he had the flu, putting ridiculous costumes to go trick or treating with him, or, more recently, since he was now 15 (already ?!), gaming with him until you’d both pass out out of exhaustion. 

Quite like Tim, Damian never had the love of a “real” mother. How it should be. The mom taking care of her son, no matter what. Not letting him do whatever he wants, but making sure he’s happy…and so, just like his older brothers before him, he came to simply adore you.

SPENCER’S TWIN IS A.D. AND WAS THE TRUE QUEEN OF HEARTS & BLACK WIDOW+MELISSA AND MONA ARE HELPING A.D.

Remember when Mona revealed to the Liars in 4x01 (“A is for A-L-I-V-E”) that Melissa was one of the Queen of Hearts, along with Wilden?

Well, no. She wasn’t.

When they were watching the tape, Emily questioned who the second Queen of Hearts was. Mona, eyeing at Spencer, responded, “Your sister.”

The video was shut down by Big A (Charlotte) before it could be proven it was her sister, aka Melissa, which is what everyone was thinking as she is Spencer’s only known sibling.

I don’t understand why they couldn’t have shown that Melissa was the Queen of Hearts to the audience if she was. That’s because she wasn’t, and it was Spencer’s twin!

Melissa and Mona, as well as Charlotte, all knew of the existence of Spencer’s twin, who is now A.D. When Spencer was questioning Melissa about her being the Queen of Hearts, Melissa abruptly kept stopping her at sentences, or not replying to some of her questions. Melissa claimed that she has been protecting Spencer since the beginning, but I think not. Not Spencer, but her twin.

Veronica (Melissa’s mother and Spencer’s supposed mother) has had cancer twice (as we know of). What if after she had Melissa, she developed cancer, and this stopped her from having children? She could’ve wanted a second child after she had beat cancer, so Mary Drake became the surrogate mother of her child. However, she fell pregnant with twins, but Veronica only wanted one.

When Spencer and Aria went to see Dr. Cochran in 7x08 (”Exes and OMGs”), the man who delivered Mary’s babies, he said he dealt with two of them. Now, if he had delivered Charlotte too, who is the eldest child, why couldn’t he have said, “I delivered two separate babies.”

Mary wasn’t allowed to keep the second baby after a while due to the strict rules at Radley, and also because she was a mental patient who had history of “killing a baby” (when that was actually Jessica). The twin was probably raised in Radley too somewhere.

Charlotte knew of the twin’s existence and the twin was the TRUE Black Widow! Sara Harvey claimed herself to be the identity of the BW to protect Spencer’s twin, whom she was good friends with herself and knew that’s what Charlotte wanted her to do.

The Black Widow had brunette hair, and her body was identical to Spencer’s structure:

Her twin’s motive would be that Spencer got to live a normal life—while she was raised in a mental institution. She was jealous and sick of Spencer. Initially, she wanted to meet her twin for the first time, but something must’ve happened that stopped her.

On the night of Jenna’s blinding, I believe her twin might’ve been watching Spencer, and/or possibly wanted to meet her. When the stink bomb set off, it burned the twin, and she was scarred for the rest of her life with them. This made her HATE the Liars and Spencer. She has despised them since then.

The BW ending scene in 4x01 (where she had a burnt mask) could’ve hinted towards this:

Of course, she didn’t have that mask when she was there the night Jenna was blinded, but the mask was burnt at the night of the lodge fire. Spencer’s twin was working in two different divisions—the “A” Team and Melissa’s alliance (with Jenna and Shana). They could possibly know the existence of Spencer’s twin too. The twin could’ve set fire to the lodge originally to get revenge on them burning her, partnering with Jenna too as they blinded her in the same accident.

In 4x23 (”Unbridled”), Veronica said to Spencer: “It was as if there were two of you living in this house—the Spencer we recognized and your evil twin. We never knew which one was coming down for breakfast.” Foreshadowing much?

Spencer was drove to madness in Season 3 after Toby supposedly died, and she was admitted into Radley. This could foreshadow her twin especially, and her twin could’ve planned this whole thing to make her end up crazy. 

Sometimes I think some scenes we’ve seen Spencer in isn’t really Spencer. For example, in the ending scene of 7x08 (”Exes and OMGs”) we see Spencer flicking through a family photo album, as if she’s searching for answers. I believe this was her twin in this scene.

I believe that it wasn’t Spencer who Toby kissed in 7x10 (”The DArkest Knight”), it was her twin! She was wearing the same sweater in this scene as she was wearing in 7x08.

“Spencer” was acting quite odd in this scene. May I also note that Spencer wasn’t wearing that sweater later on, because we later see her in a plain white sweater (the one she got shot in).

How could I forget the heart-warming scene between Hanna and Spencer in 7x01 (”Tick-Tock, Bitches”)?

This was NOT a dream! The Liars have always had dreams, such as the many that included Alison, and they always turn out to be reality. Spencer mentioned Uber A’s alias (A.D.) in the dream, yet how could Hanna have dreamt that when they were sent the first text that was signed off saying “- A.D.” after Hanna was kidnapped?

Most importantly, Spencer did not have her bangs in this scene. She has had them since the five-year time jump that started in 6B. People say that she didn’t have her bangs in this scene because Hanna wanted to remember the “clever” Spencer. She’s still as intelligent as ever, so I don’t see why it was necessary for her to not have her bangs in this scene. That’s because it was her twin!

As Jessica always said, “You can never turn your back on a Hastings.” Spencer turned her back and she was SHOT by A.D. 

Jessica knows how dangerous they can be, like Spencer’s twin. What if it was Spencer’s twin who hit Ali that night, and it was Mary who buried her alive? Charlotte could’ve easily covered for her beloved sister.

Melissa is definitely part of Uber A’s game, and so is Mona. I believe Mona is only doing so because she wants to protect the girls (by stopping A.D. doing anything extreme). However, I think she probably left the gAme after Hanna’s kidnapping. She was so distraught over Hanna seemingly being dead.

She knows she can’t tell the Liars everything though—it’ll cost her their friendship, her redeeming, their forgiveness over her being Original A, and quite possibly her life as we all know A.D. is dangerous and doesn’t like to mess around.

As for Melissa, well… bitch doesn’t care. Everything mostly points towards her and she’s one of the most, if not the, shadiest character(s) in the show. She’s always despised Spencer, and she always blames her for her unhappiness. Melissa wants to partner with Spencer’s twin because she knows how much it’ll destroy Spencer.

Melissa likes to lie, and she likes to trick others. Maybe she was protecting Spencer’s twin when she buried Bethany? She knew Spencer would find out about this sooner or later, so she told her she was protecting her and not anybody else. Really, Melissa?

If I recall, Spencer was talking to Toby in 1x20 (“Someone to Watch Over Me”) about running away, and she mentioned that when she was a child, she had a fight with her sister and her parents took her side. Yes, I believe that was Melissa, but Spencer said she ran away after that. What if her twin took her place while she was gone? She said that when she returned, her parents hadn’t even noticed she had gone. Strange much?

When Spencer first “met” Mary in 7x01, they were discussing about twins almost. Mary mentioned how much Spencer and Melissa look a little like twins. Hinting much? Could Mary possibly be Melissa’s surrogate mother too? Perhaps Veronica couldn’t have children at all. This would explain the resemblance between Melissa and Spencer. They look too much alike to not be biological sisters.

In the 7B trailer, we see A.D. slightly taking their hood aback. We can see that their hair color is BROWN/BRUNETTE.

A.D. IS Spencer’s twin. There is so much more to this, and I will most definitely expand on it soon!

Thank you for reading. ^_^

Furry, feisty, paw-erful—Otter Girl! This Sea Otter Awareness Week, let’s meet the resident female sea otters at the heart of our Sea Otter Program!

Meet Rosa! At 18 years of age, she’s our oldest sea otter—and also our blondest! Quick aside: the grizzling of sea otters doesn’t have much to do with age—you can see from her pup photo that she was born blonde!

Rosa was found stranded as a four-week-old pup in north Monterey Bay in September 1999. She weighed just over five pounds at the time! In April 2000 she was released back to the wild, where she spent nearly two years as a wild sea otter—but unfortunately she began interacting with divers and climbing onto kayaks. Because of the potential risks to Rosa and people, federal wildlife officials declared her non-releasable, and we welcomed her back to the Aquarium as a permanent resident in June 2002.

During her years at the Aquarium she’s put her maternal instincts to work—she’s reared more pups than any other active surrogate mother!Rosa gets her name from a character in John Steinbeck’s Tortilla Flat—the first of the author’s novels set on Cannery Row. Thanks for all of your hard work and years of service to your species, Rosa!

In the “Logan” movie the baddies were using Mexican women as surrogate mothers for mutants. The lab was located in Mexico, so, I connected the dots and decided to give Laura “X-23′ a Mexican origin. 

These are sketches of her as a student. Brainstorming her age and look. Bushy hair and big eyebrows. Thin “popotitos” like extremities, length and shape of the blades, etc. etc. 

More sketches thru all of the week, stay tuned.

K so I will pay you for omegas who can't have kids headcanons I will also pay you for more more adopted kids headcanons

  • Omegas who can’t have kids absolutely adoring spending time around their friends who have pups
  • They always leap in to help whenever their friends need a baby sitter (pup sitter?)
  • Infertile omegas are often looked down on and shunned by society, because, in the basest terms possible, breeding is what omegas do on an evolutionary level
  • Parents who know their omega child will grow up to be infertile, but not having the heart to tell them as they watch their child cradle their soft animals and pretend to feed them bottles of milk and dress them in baby clothes
  • An infertile omega who decides early in life not to be bitter about not being able to have pups, and training to be a maternity nurse because dammit, if they can’t have their own pups, they’ll sure as hell help others have theirs
  • Also, infertile omegas who become family doctors/consultants, so they can watch one pup grow from birth right up to an adult having pups of their own
  • Infertile omegas who still, even as grown adults, sometimes cradle pillows or soft toys, pretending it’s their pup
  • Some omegas even go so far as to avoid building nests, because they associate them so much with pups and fertility
  • An infertile omega having to tell their mate that they can have pups in a very quiet, halting voice
  • Infertile omegas who work as teachers in elementary school/primary school absolutely adoring watching their students grow from tiny weeny pups to kids about to go off to secondary/middle school
  • Then there are the few omegas who are incredibly bitter about being infertile, who try to avoid pups like the plague
  • Infertile omegas who are offered the chance for them and their mate to have a surrogate mother, and the little omega just bursts into tears
  • An infertile omega who’s mated to another (fertile) omega deciding to use a sperm donor to have a child
  • A very nervous alpha pair waiting almost a year to adopt their very own beta pup, and freaking out because “what if they don’t like us?! What if we do something wrong?!”
  • Newly adopted siblings clinging to each other for the first few days in their new house, and even sleeping in the same bed and refusing to go anywhere without the other
  • A beta and omega pair who had fostered a small alpha revealing to the alpha on Christmas Day that they’re going to adopt them, and the alpha bursting into happy tears
  • An adopted omega deciding that their alpha parents’ bed is THE BEST place to build their stress nest, so they take over the entire bed. Not wanting to scare or intimidate the small omega while they’re still settling in, the two alphas sleep on the sofa for a week until the omega demands they come and sleep in the nest
  • A single omega adopting a troubled beta child, and when the beta gets stressed and begins to panic, and omega does the only thing they can think of that always calms them down; they build a nest around the beta child
    • Bonus: It works
  • An alpha child who had always seemed a little aloof and distant from their adoptive alpha and omega parents, and they have no idea what to do. One day, the alpha falls and scrapes their knee. The omega parent is watching, holding themselves back from going to help, and expects the child to start crying and run away somewhere, or simply carry on. To their surprise, the small alpha lets out a loud scream of “MAMAAAAAAAAA” and sprints over to the omega, snivelling and whining
    • The omega almost dies of happiness
  • A beta pair who already have a rough, playful alpha pup, and adopting a beta child who’s more reserved and younger than their alpha. They worry that their alpha pup will start roughhousing with the little adoptive sibling, but to their surprise, their pup takes the beta’s hand and says, very shyly and quietly, “can I show you your room?”
  • An omega and alpha adopting a very young pup who’s only a few months old, and the moment the omega holds the little pup, they whisper “oh my god” and feel a sudden, incredibly strong urge to protect this tiny, helpless pup and they understand what ‘maternal instinct’ means

  • neji lived and he became a huge hitter in hyuga clan politics and got the cursed seal on the branch members revoked
  • naruto is stil busy being hokage, but he is actually able to balance his work with raising his child and will have his shadows clans do work for him rather than miss his own kid’s birthday
  • naruto also doesn’t tell boruto to just call him “seventh hokage” when in public because that would be hypocrtical considering the fact he called tsunade and the third “grandma” and “grandpa” respectively
  • sasuke’s soul searching redemption travels ended a long time ago and he is a permanent resident here in konoha
  • after hinata got her haircut, she and her lovely wife, sakura, took a selfie with the caption ‘wives with matching hair’
  • sakura runs her hospital like the bamf she is
  • sasuke is the protective dad. fight me on this. date nights when boruto was a baby was always cut short because he worried too much about boruto soooo date night became watching elmo on late night tv on the couch with their son
  • inojin and boruto fight over who is auntie sakura’s fav nephew. sakura tries the ‘you’re both my favourite’ thing, it doesn’t work

  • when hinata goes on missions she makes her girls promise to not trash the house while she is away
  • temari, ino, and sakura have their multiple meet ups all the time
  • the sasuke retrieval squad, lee, and sasuke all meet up from time to time and drink sake and laugh and talk about the sound ninja 4/5 and the hell they went through trying to get sasuke’s ass back in the village
  • between the next gen, it is all mutually agreed that narusasu’s house is the best house to play games because it is a large house but sakuhina’s house is the best to go to for great snacks because hinata makes these large and tasty cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate
  • naruto and hinata are gardening buddies
  • team 7 meet up every two weeks to eat at ichiraku ramen together. yamato and kakashi talk about how much trouble these youngsters put them through as kids. sai makes light jabs at sakura, naruto, and sasuke but all in good fun

  • sakuhina family pictures
  • naruto and sasuke had a small and private wedding with their close friends. sakura got drunk and emotional
  • sakura and hinata’s wedding was larger because it wasn’t just friends and family but the entire hyuga clan. naruto gave the drunk best man speech and sasuke was sighing and shaking his head at his husband’s antics but he loves this dork so much
  • sasuke and sakura are good friends. sakura pwns him in arm wrestling matches tho and sasuke is lowkey a huge bag of salt because “you’re cheating” “sasuke, you can’t cheat in arm wrestling. pay up” “i hate you” “get rekt”

  • chouchou and sarada are still bffs, divas in training
  • tsunade thinks naruto and sakura have chosen the perfect spouses
  • a part of sasuke died when boruto told him that he had a crush on shikadai (after shikadai’s weird crush on boruto’s auntie hinata subsided) his son doesn’t need a crush. “boys are awful, insensitive creatures!!” “…. dad, we’re boys” “did i ask for your witty response?”
  • chouchou was the most popular girl in the academy and got a bunch of love letters all the time
  • someone reblog and add onto this because this is good shit

Furry, feisty, paw-erful—Otter Girl! This amazing otter has quite the survival story—meet Selka!

Selka was found stranded in July of 2012 off Cayucos, California as a one-week-old pup. She was cared for at the Aquarium and released into the wild in June 2013. Unfortunately, eight weeks after release, she was found hauled out in Moss Landing Harbor with severe shark bite injuries. She underwent extensive surgery and recovery back at the Aquarium, and splashed back into the wild four months later.

After several months in the wild, Selka was brought back to the Aquarium due to concerns about her health and several interactions with people. She was declared non-releasable by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Selka spent the next two years at UC Santa Cruz’ Long Marine Lab, where she helped researchers understand how wild sea otters search for and acquire enough prey to survive in their ocean home.

Selka joined our exhibit in August of 2016. She’s clever, with an easy-going and inquisitive nature. Selka is our youngest otter and has the darkest fur of any of the otters at the Aquarium. Even at her young age, she’s already proven herself to be a successful surrogate mother. Check out this video of Selka raising her first pup!

Phew, what a story! Thanks for all you do for sea otters, Selka!

happy mother’s day from my favorite shonen anime

I recommend watching all of these classics today:

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Asuka’s mother loses her mind and commits suicide

traumatizing her daughter for life

and of course Shinji is motherless as well

…until he realizes his mother’s soul is INSIDE of his Eva and they have been enjoying fun mother-son activities together the whole time like eating other Evas and brutally murdering angels

so

yay


Code Geass

So we see this flashback of Marianne being shot like 1,000 times

until it turns out she has been alive the entire time inside of Anya and is trying to “slay God” a.k.a. instrumentality lite and Lelouch is like

lol

you dead


Shingeki no Kyojin

So Mikasa is just a normal girl until her mother is straight-murdered and she becomes, at age 8 or whatever, a straight-murderer

and yet manages to live a relatively peaceful existence until her surrogate mother, Eren’s mom, is straight CHOMPED

and Eren is traumatized for life too YAY

3 months. 

3 months already since she died…

Jason, just like Alfred, his brothers, and his father just couldn’t get over it. 

He just couldn’t move on with his life without his mother. Without the woman that always stood by him no matter what, even in the worst of moments. 

He was so damn angry at himself that he wasn’t able to save you ! All of them were, the guilt eating them more and more every day…Even though they all knew things went too fast. 

You weren’t the only one that died that day…Thousands lost their life in the almost total destruction of the neighborhood you were born in : The Narrows. 

It was the poorest in Gotham, and you were helping out a charity there when the Batman failed big time, for the first time in his career. 

Ha hadn’t been able to solve the Riddler’s riddle. And for the first time in his life,  Edward Nigma was finally able to fulfill one of his evil plans..Which was the destruction of every single neighborhood of Gotham, one for each riddle the Dark Knight wouldn’t be able to solve. 

And of course, the only one he didn’t find, was the one associated with the only place in Gotham you were in…You, and thousands of other people died. And it was all Batman’s fault. No matter that he was able to save the rest of the inhabitants, the blood of those people were on his hands…

Your blood was on his hands. And, just like Alfred and his sons, he just couldn’t get over your death. They all felt so guilty and angry at themselves that they couldn’t save you…you were always there for them, always by their side, having their back and…they let you down. 

Of course they send you messages telling you to leave Gotham but..You wouldn’t. You stayed because you wanted to help people. According to witnesses, to people who were survivors of the blast, who barely escaped it…the last time they all so you, you were trying to get some kids to safety. 

But no matter how guilty they felt, how devastated they were, it wouldn’t change anything. You were gone. Forever. And once again, Jason Todd found himself wandering the street of Gotham aimlessly, trying to run away from his dark thoughts, trying to grieve you, even though he knew it was actually impossible to ever move from you. 

Staying at the Manor with his brothers and father was…unbearable. 

Alfred kept cleaning the house over and over again, never taking a break, and worst of all…avoiding everything you touched last. Your half finished cup of tea in the library. The books you left open. Your dinner plate still in the sink. Some of your shoes thrown haphazardly in the living room. Your towels in the bathroom. Your jewelry on the kitchen counter, that you left there because you didn’t want to wear anything that’d make people from the Narrows feel uncomfortable around you. Your favorite blanket, still on the floor where you left it, as you realized you were going to be late to the charity event and napping in the couch was now over…Alfred cleaned everything, but avoided touching any of your stuffs. And it was unbearable. 

Dick…Oh it was one of the worst. Jason was used to be the broody and overly-cynical one. Him and his father competed constantly about which one was the broodiest and Dick would just laugh at them and make silly jokes. Jason used to be like that too, making jokes and even able to make the Batman crack a smile…but ever since he came back to life, he lost that. He became darker and meaner. And Dick was kind of his solace, with his cheerful persona and positive attitude. The oldest Wayne boys always been everyone’s beacon of light in the darkest of moments. But your death…your death turned him into a zombie that spend his days looking out of a window, or staring at old pictures of you and him, stuck in memories of you, unable to see his own light…And it was unbearable. 

The only person that could really convince Tim to sleep, to not drink too much coffee, to take care of himself and to socialize was you. A word from you and he’d realize that yes, this was too much and he needed to chill, to go see his friends, to relax…But without you ? Alfred tried, oh he really did try but…Tim wouldn’t listen. You really were the only one to convince him, and he would forever associate all the good things he experienced in life (time with his friends and family, relaxed moment in front of the TV, good nights of sleep etc etc…), with you. Without you ? He just couldn’t…And seeing his little brother destroy himself like so was unbearable to Jason. 

Damian didn’t utter a word since your death. Not even a sound. Him who usually always talked too damn much, and was just so annoying…Nothing. He didn’t brag about anything, he didn’t try to be better than anyone else anymore. He was just…apathetic. He wouldn’t say anything, not even to Dick. He wouldn’t even look at them in the eyes. He spends most of his time in front of your tomb, where he did talk to you. But to others ? No. It’s like he had made a vow of silence and this ? It was unbearable. 

Bruce spend all his time working to avoid thinking about your absence but…Whenever he thought he was alone, whenever he came back to your shared bedroom, half-expecting still to find you there…They could all hear him cry. They could hear him mourn you, inconsolable. And the thought of his father, that he always viewed as invincible, destroyed by you not being there anymore was unbearable. Bruce wasn’t fine, inconsolable. He would forever be inconsolable, he lost the love of his life 3 months ago…

Captain America, Isaiah Bradley

“When captain America was presumed dead, and the super soldier formula along with him, the Americas tried to re-create said formula  so they could have a super soldier again. To this end many African Americans were subjected to experimentation.

Of those to survive was Isiah Bradley an outstanding black soldier and father of one. Isiah emerged the only viable and successful subject. He managed to stop the Natzi group who tried to create a German super soldier and was captured and tortured by them for months. When he was finally rescued by his American superiors he was court-martialed and jailed.While he was in jail his genetic son was born to a surrogate mother after 39 other attempts had failed. This son would grow up to become Josiah X. Years later he was pardoned by President Eisenhower and released.

His daughter would have a son who would lead the young avengers as Patriot. When his grandson was critically wounded a blood transfusion from him gave his Grandson all of his abilities.”

anonymous asked:

Now that you are a mother, what do you think of surrogacy? Do you think it should be banned?

My views on surrogacy have been influenced a lot by Swedish radical feminist  Kajsa Ekis Ekman. I went to a lecture she gave on the similarities between prostitution and surrogacy in Melbourne a couple of years ago and I thought she drew some very convincing parallels. I oppose all forms of surrogacy because I think it violates women’s and children’s rights. It places the rights of the “customer” above the rights of the surrogate mother and baby. Because rich, white western couples are willing to pay big bucks for their own biological child, some husbands in poorer countries pimp out their wives for use by these rich couples. Pregnancy and birth are life-threatening experiences, but even when it all goes smoothly, it is still enormously taxing on the woman’s body. And, god, the intense hormones a woman’s body produces after giving birth mean that having the baby she was carrying taken from her shortly after birth would feel like a death has occurred. Why don’t people ever talk about this? How the surrogate mother would have to endure swollen, leaking breasts among many other overwhelming sensations. Her body would instinctively know that her baby is gone and it would be utterly miserable. Surrogacy is not a practice we should allow our society to normalise.
