the cohort

White-crowned sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys), at the Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch, Gilbert, Arizona.

I love the common little birds. Sometimes they turn out to have uncommon abilities. These sparrows sing songs built of snippets and themes from the songs of birds they are exposed to when very young. Consequently, song dialects can emerge, and if a cohort is in an area where two distinct white-crowned dialects overlap, birds in that group will become fluent singing both songs. 


We are the 2016-17 cohort of the Museum Education Fellowship Program at the Brooklyn Museum! This is the true social media post of six strangers, picked to live in a museum, work together, and have their lives transformed. Find out what happens, when people stop being polite, and start getting real…

thievinghippo  asked:

Did Gemma date any aliens back in the Milky Way?

She did! She dated a few aliens casually through high school and her undergrad work on the Citadel (two asari, one turian, and she had an intense but awkward flirtation with a salarian classmate). 

Gemma is a serial monogamist; sex is a distant concern, when it’s a concern at all, but she craves romance. She’s goofy and happy and glib, which tends to mask a very soft and open heart that will drown you in love if you give it half a chance. This led to some…awkward and unfortunate situations when she was younger, and didn’t understand that just because someone fits some fairy-tale criteria, it doesn’t mean they’ll be a healthy or supportive partner. So she had a few bad breakups, including a real disaster when she was 20, but that horrible break-up led to a wonderful relationship with an asari, Nesua P’Vari, in her cohort at university. 

They were assigned to the same dig site together (training side-by-side with Alliance military as part of their prep for the dig), and it was the real version of what Gemma always wanted. They were isolated, doing intense work together, sharing discoveries and secrets (gee, Gemma, do you maybe have a type?), and for almost three years, they were fantastically happy. 

Nesua wanted to have children, and Gemma was nowhere near ready, so they split up after a long, sad series of fights that weren’t fights so much as trying, with tooth and claw, to stay together, even they knew it was done. They stayed sporadically in touch, and Nesua was the first person, outside the Initiative, who knew that Gemma was leaving. 

(Nesua’s still alive when Gemma reaches Andromeda, and always hopes that her old love found home, and peace, and all the romance she could handle.)

    There was a whole web of rumors surrounding Kim Jiyong. Some thought he was a drug dealer, some thought he was in a gang. Most of the girls thought of him as a mysterious heartthrob and found his loner status intriguing.

     You knew he was simply an introvert and liked to keep to his work. He stayed alone because most of his friends attended other schools. You didn’t quite understand why everyone paid so much attention to him, though. You’d worked in a group project with him before, and he seemed quite normal. You supposed his unusual but strangely attractive appearance and confident, relaxed bearing helped him stand out instead of fade into the woodwork like most of the other loners at your school (including to some degree, you) did.

    You were sitting at lunch one day, wondering where your two closest friends, who you usually sat with, had gotten to when you heard someone clear their throat and looked up to see Jiyong standing there. “Oh, hey,” you said, slightly surprised.

    “Hey,” he said. His gaze wandered lazily over your shoulder and then returned to your eyes. “Mind if I sit with you?”

    “Not at all,” you said, resisting the urge to ask why he wanted to.

    He slid into the seat opposite you, and you quietly took another bite of your food, wondering if the conversation was going to be painfully awkward or whether you should speed up your eating so you could get out of it quicker. He cleared his throat. “How’s your day going?”

  “Well, so far I’ve only had statistics and history, and statistics went well, but history… It’s so much rote memorization, you know?”

    He nodded. “It kinda frustrates me because we’re just going to forget most of that stuff after the test. Seems like they should focus on more general stuff or big events instead of having us memorize every date and political faction.”
