Ok so now I'm thinking Kara x Cat x Lena ot3. Tis glorious.

Oooh.  That IS glorious.  I’ve never written true OT3, aside from a couple of cheesy ficlets.  Certainly nothing with actual smut.  I’m not sure I could go nsfw myself, but hey, if any of my supercat pals are inspired, take it and run.

But, I’m more than willing to take a run at a fluffy/angsty ot3 anon if you’ve got something specific you’re dying to see.  In the meantime, I have a gdoc open and will ponder.

I’m not sure her favourite scent, but he can make all kinds of smells since he grows his own flowers and pours his own wax. :’D

Paul Flannery is a multimedia artist. Not much is knows about his work and life, apart of the following introduction he wrote about his pencil drawings: My drawings illustrate ways in which individual bodies connect together and interact to create a communal whole. As such they act as a kind of …

Inuvialuit man's debilitating stroke seen as drunkeness by health care staff
'He just looked at me and he was yelling 'I'm not drunk! I'm not drunk!'' says Maggie Papik

Maggie Papik knew something was wrong when she got a call from staff at her uncle Hugh Papik’s elders home on Aug. 3.

According to Papik, staff told her she needed to “deal with him” because he was drunk. They had found him lying on the ground covered in his own urine.

Hugh Papik, a 68-year-old Inuvialuit man, had had several strokes in the past.

“As soon as I got close enough, he clinged to me,” she said.

“He just looked at me and he was yelling ‘I’m not drunk! I’m not drunk!’”

She brought him to the Aklavik Health Centre, but says nurses there just kept telling her her uncle was drunk. Papik says it took nursing staff six hours to order a medevac for her uncle to the nearest hospital, 120 kilometres away in Inuvik.

By the time he reached Inuvik, he didn’t know his own name, she says.

Papik says doctors later told her that her uncle had had a stroke that caused swelling in his brain. He was sent on to Stanton Territorial Hospital in Yellowknife for a CT scan, where doctors told Papik the swelling in her uncle’s brain was too extensive — he was brain dead.

On Wednesday, Papik brought her uncle back to Inuvik so that family and friends could say their goodbyes. She unplugged him from life support later that day.

“Now it’s just all on his own time, whenever he’s ready.”

Papik says racism was a factor in the way her uncle was treated.

“Natives cannot be treated like this,” Papik said.

“There’s a difference between the way a white person and a native gets treated. I bet if you were lying down stroked out, they’d pick you up and haul you out of there. But if you were native they’d say, 'Oh, she’s drunk and passed out.’”

A spokesperson for the nurses’ employer, the N.W.T. Department of Health and Social Services, says it has already reviewed the incident, and won’t be taking any further steps.

“The CEO of the N.W.T. Health and Social Services Authority has reviewed the matter and she is confident that appropriate clinical practices were followed,” spokesperson Damien Healy wrote in an email to CBC.

“There is no further follow-up review being considered.

"We can assure you that we take these concerns seriously,” Healy said.

voltron shrek au

alright. alright alright alright alright.

  • KEITH is quite obviously SHREK. loner. off-putting personality. intimidating at first. probably smells weird. odd concept of what constitutes hygiene. good heart. not the best socially. puts in effort that often goes unnoticed thanks to preconceived notions. could benefit from a lot of hugs. impulsive. also: keith lives out in the desert, shrek lives out in the swamp. 
  • GET OUT OF MY SHACK (BASS DROPS) SHACKSHACKSHACKSHACKshaaaaaCK
  • now this may throw some of you for a loop, but HUNK is DONKEY. anxious. tendency to ramble. appreciative of what’s important. vocal about it when annoyed or upset. supportive and loving, but ultimately aware of your bullshit and will call you on it if necessary. scares easily. aware of his own mortality. gets stuck in threatening situations because of his friends. tries to have a positive outlook. a good friend to have on your side. hilarious. genuine. would make u waffles.
  • LANCE is FIONA. critically underestimated. demands the #best out of life. a little spoiled + loves to be pampered. petty as hell. easy to toss over your shoulder. sarcasm as a pseudo-coping mechanism. actually very accepting. big heart. not afraid of Emotions. hard fucking worker. lowkey leadership skills. damsel in distress but accompanied by the trope of being Surprisingly Competent. grody jokes. certified nastie. genuinely supportive pal. will fuck u up… but at what cost… at what cost….

and did somebody say PLOT??????

  • haha too bad, i don’t have one
  • ok that’s a lie i have half of one
  • keith is the human child of a galra commander who was killed in battle. he basically raised himself on this alien planet away from everyone else because he wasn’t accepted and treated as an outsider/monstrosity
  • lance, a prophesied paladin of voltron, is kidnapped from earth and locked away in space with the discovered lion, left there to rot as bait for the other eventual paladins/lions
  • it’s surprisingly effective as a means of weeding out the rebels against galra rule
  • that is until zarkon starts taking captives instead of killing them all, because he still is no closer to obtaining the black, yellow, or green lions
  • shortly after this is when shiro manages to escape and crash land on earth, found by hunk and pidge, who are desperate in their search to recover their lost friend lance, whose disappearance (*pidge voice* ABDUCTION) was covered up by The Garrison, same as the disappearance of pidge’s family
  • (yes, this makes SHIRO the GINGERBREAD MAN)
  • hunk and pidge rescue shiro, repair his crashed ship with their beautiful genius brains, and head towards the Castle of Lions with swiped secret info + coordinates from The Garrison—- who, they find, knew exactly what happened to lance, pidge’s family, and why
  • the galra start dumping the captives for keeping on keith’s land, so that they can have them on hand for gladiatorial training, slavery, or other uses. keith is livid, but mostly because he has to deal with Change and People and Things Were Fine The Way They Were, Like, They Sucked, But He Wasn’t Dwelling On It Okay and Still, This Is Worse
  • once hunk, pidge, and shiro have teamed up with ALLURA (ARTHUR) and CORAN (MERLIN), hunk goes alone to retrieve the yellow lion, but ends up getting captured by the galra en route
  • this is how hunk and keith meet
  • hunk figures out what’s happening based on keith’s angry ranting, and when sendak promises keith that if he can find a way to use the blue paladin to lure out the rest of voltron, he can have his lonely little asteroid planet back
  • hunk uses this as an opportunity to go save lance!!!!! and good thing he does because keith needs him to help save the day on balmera thanks to his beautiful new She’s-Not-My-Girlfriend, SHAY.
  • keith doesn’t know what he’s going to do once they get there and meet this stupid, trouble-making blue paladin
  • defect against the galra? double-cross the paladins to get his home back?? was it even really a home to begin with??
  • he CERTAINLY doesn’t plan… to fall in Love…………………..

just,,, LISten ,,

  • keith: it’s no wonder u don’t have any friends? hunk: wow, only a True friend would be that Truly Honest?
  • (keith driving over a cliff) 🎶 I DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT MY BAD REPUTATION 🎶
  • hunk: (looks between keith and lance in disbelief) he’s as nasty as you are?
  • lance: (singing) bird: (explodes)
  • when a galra in the bush grabs a paladin by the tush that’s bad that’s bad that’s really really bad
  • keith: what am i? pidge: uh… really tall?
  • keith getting shot in the butt and lance having to pull it out
  • is that a euphemism
  • i don’t know
  • mullets are like onions
  • hunk: blue flower red thorns blue flower red thorns blue flower red thorns THIS WOULD BE SO MUCH EASIER IF I WASN’T COLORBLIND
  • blue flower 😎 red thorns 😎 #investigate

and that’s just the first movie,,

Metaphysics and other Dystopian Illustrations by Erdem Ergaz

Hey guys! I haven’t seen anyone posting about a good thing that happened in Canada today too.

For those who don’t know, Canada is made up of 10 provinces and 3 territories. Our provinces are considered co-sovereign under the Constitution and have their own lieutenant-governors. Our territories are not considered sovereign, but parts of the federal realm, and have a commissioner instead. I guess it’s somewhat similar to territories of the United States, except that their representatives can actually vote and participate in the government’s House and Senate - though their seats are few.

Today the Northwest Territories were given rights on par with a province’s! So now Northwest Territory land is officially recognized as their land, not the government’s, and they have the authority to control their own resources.

Why it’s great:

  • The money profited off of the territory’s resources will go to the people of that territory, and not the federal government.
  • The people of the territory now have autonomy and the power of self-determination to build a better economy.
  • Financially and socially, the northern territories have suffered under a lack of water resources being available to remote communities and utter lack of crime control. Why? Because the federal government simply could not be bothered to take care of the people in the territories they were meant to protect.
  • Now that they have rights to control their own assets and resources, help can be given to the people who need it.
  • More Aboriginal representation in their own affairs!
  • The first territory to gain rights on par with a province was Yukon territory, and now Northwest - giving Nunavut, the third province, ample prcedent to push for their own autonomy!
Hickies.

I think they’re cute. Not the fucking big, nasty, huge, fugly ones. But the little hidden ones. It’s like a persons way of claiming their lover. You see a boy or girl with one peaking out from under their shirt collar, you know they’re taken. You know they have someone special. Its like a persons way of claiming them, like, “you’re mine.” I dunno, I just think it’s cute.

Scars on the Earth: Emmet Gowin’s Aerial Photographs

US artist Emmet Gowin discovered aerial photography after receiving a scholarship from the Seattle Arts Commission in 1980 and consequently being asked to photograph the massive eruption of Mount Saint Helens. Since then, she has been taking black-and-white pictures of the surface of the Earth…
