the ocean at the end of the land

straightouttathotland  asked:

Goldie glared at the asshole-wizard, knowing what his intentions were for him. His time had come. Without warning, Goldie sprang put and tail-slapped the asshole-wizard into the ocean, where he would finally meet his end the way he deserved. As soon as his lungs collapsed and he died, Goldie found himself changing, transforming. Before long, he had turned back into the human he had been before. Feeling triumphant, Goldie took a few steps onto land. The asshole-wizard was gone. He was free.

If only this fanfic could come true…

"follow me instead" from march to the sea... im getting a little space ship tattoo soon as a subtle reference to it!!!

I’m sorry, I just had to lmao. That’s such a cool idea for a tattoo! Twenty one pilots and space ships, I don’t think of something better than that

And as we near the end of land
And our ocean graves are just beyond the sand
I ask myself the question
Why I fall in line

gallery

request: Can you write something about best friend harry!

masterlist

“You promise you’ll come?”

“Come on, love, have a little faith. I would cross an ocean to get to that gallery opening.”

I smirked at his joke, “Yes, Harry, that’s exactly what I’m asking you to do.”

I heard him chuckle on the other line, “I’ll be there. Promise.”

***

That was a week ago. I hadn’t talked to him much since and now we were nearing the end of the gallery opening. No sign of Harry. I checked my phone; no missed calls or texts. I tried calling him myself and only got his voicemail.

"Hi! Gallery opening today! Call me when you land, I just want to know if you got in safely.”

“Hey it’s me, just wondering when you’ll be here so I can let the curator know when to look for you.”

“Hi, me again, all the photos of you sold pretty quickly, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised I think most people are more here for you than me. Anyway, call me back please.”

“There’s only a few people left here and the gallery closes in an hour. Where are you?”

And before the year ends, you will lose yourself again in a wave of extraordinary feelings, as you ready yourself to be consumed once again by a love with no guarantees, a falling with no landing, as you allow yourself to witness a number of wonderful things the world has to offer:

i. his eyes, whose sparkle never fails to take your breath away, and which carries you to the vast universe for they seem to you like an ocean of stars and quasars and supernovas, and you know you’ve always loved the universe and all the lovely things inside it, how infinitely it grows, like the sparkle in his eyes, how endlessly it seemed to wander in your mind like the memories of the laughter you’ve had from the previous night;
ii. his beautiful smile, which can brighten anyone’s day (but mostly yours) than any morning or evening star, as it tries to crumple your facial muscles into what seemed like a painting of the emotions swirling inside your chest as you talk to him face-to-face, this hurricane of excitement and joy and sadness and anger and life sculpting your face into an unknown emotion—his smile whose radiance is an extension of the beauty of his soul, a medium of the endless beauty he keeps inside;
iii. his voice, mocking though it was, which flows so smoothly over your body like cold water from a spring, or like rays of sunshine from the windows of your room; a voice which you’ve heard so many times that it became a music that tickles your ear and sends your body yearning for even just a brush from his skin; it wasn’t seductive, no, it was just a regular voice which over the time had become a special symphony of love and lust and lies and truth;
iv. his hair and the hairs all over his chest, which you so badly crave for in times of the lustful calling of the crickets and frogs (a weird metaphor, i know) during nights when you were alone in your bed and you get a peek from his v-neck shirt earlier that day; his hair whose smell reminds you of lavender fields and whose fragrance delights you like the way flowers on a bouquet excites your olfactory senses; his armpit hair that you so badly want to see again, for you’ve seen it once and only in such a fraction of a second, that since then it left you with fantasies you never dared to tell anyone;
v. his arms, which aren’t even muscled or strong-looking, but makes you want to wish you were inside them nonetheless, to feel him, and only him, wrapped around your body in an embrace you’ve always dreamed about;
vi. his hands, never soft, but calloused and care-deprived from the endless nights spent crushing the computer from finishing a project on a drawing subject; hands which you’ve always dreamed of holding even for just a short time, and if given the chance, you’d hold for the rest of eternity and still keep falling in love with the feeling of someone holding your equally tired hands, but you know how impossible this is so a small caress on your cheek would be a greatest gift you’ll always keep;
vii. and finally his lips, which leaves you with a curiosity of how sweet they must taste, or how soft they must feel on your fingers or on your lips, how weird it must feel like to envelop them with your own lips, or how addictive it might be if you had even just a bite from it like a child who craves so deeply for a specific ice cream flavor on a hot, summer day; those lips which you know you can never have, and never will have, but still be happy to have seen even from afar and to have witnessed it curling and bending into smiles you never could forget.

fourteen months ago car seat headrest was an unsigned 23-year-old earning $100 a month in bandcamp sales and today he landed at #4 on rolling stone’s year-end best albums list, ahead of frank ocean and radiohead and kanye and leonard cohen, like, what kind of literal actual icon

so like…..anyone want to try a cliche mermaid au?

- moon/sun, mom, and meowth (who is a regular cat now) are all humans who decide to move somewhere else across from kanto via boat…sun/moon fall overboard, and are rescued by some merpeople after the ship crew cant seem to fetch them out of the rough waves
- those merpeople ends up being hau, hala, and kukui. merpeople generally dont talk to humans since they fuck up the ocean a lot, but kukui likes humans, and wants to know more about them! hau likes adventure, and hala wants to keep the underwater “city” of melemele protected, so they all agree to help you out
- sun/moon was dropped in the middle of the ocean, with land miles and miles away, so the nearest land was a very small island with a cave just above melemele! when sun/moon come to, kukui is waiting for them
- sun/moon are likely VERY shocked that uh, merpeople exist? kukui isn’t surprised by moon’s reaction, since he knows that mermaids are “myths” to humans. from there, he brings up hala and hau, who introduce themselves and also try to figure out a way to get sun/moon home
- the only way sun/moon can get back is by boat, and since merpeople dont have those, they’re just gonna need to wait for someone to pass by! in the mean time…
- hau and hala, a special breed of spell-wielding mermaid, grant sun/moon temporary water breathing and “fins”. not fish tails, but webbed hands and feet along with other things to help them get by under water while they wait
- boats typically dont go by melemele’s location, so sun/moon get permission from the other kahunas of other “cities” to see if boats pass by there! hau needs to go with, though, since the spells on sun/moon wear off after a while
- from there, that’s how sun/moon get to go around all the islands and learn about the other mermaids and have their own little adventure with hau! they also meet lillie and gladion, along with other key characters while venturing…they stay there so long, it feels like home

other tidbits!
- lusamine and the aether foundation are an human organization dead set on researching mermaids after mohn (a merman) was swept away by dangerous seacreatures (UBs)
- lusamine is a human, mohn is not…this makes lillie and gladion half merperson. they have two legs and can walk on land, but also have some odd features like insane eyesight, permanent fins, sharp teeth, slightly less-than-human voiceboxes, and some other key-mermaid traits you wouldnt see in anyone else except merhuman hybrids
- wicke and faba are also humans!
- burnet is a human, who has had the water breathing spell placed on her many times to allow her to visit kukui. they consider themselves married
- ultrabeasts are deep sea creatures
- most companion pokemon are also sea-creatures, raichu being an otter, nebby being a very small octopus (that will be Very Big someday) and silvally, who is a combination of sea creatures that lusamine forced together in order to hunt and retrieve sealife
- the one exception is kukui’s rockruff, who is an actual dog that burnet brings down to the shore to also see kukui

man i just…fuckin love mermaid aus

February 14, 2017 - Chatham Albatross, Chatham Mollymawk, or Chatham Islands Mollymawk (Thalassarche eremita)

These albatrosses are found in the Pacific Ocean between New Zealand and the west coast of South America. Their diet includes fish, krill, barnacles, and cephalopods. A pelagic species, they spend the majority of their time at sea, only returning to land to breed. They breed on an island known as the Pyramid, located at the southern end of the Chatham Islands. Nests are tightly packed on the steep cliffs of the island. These cliffs allow the nests to be accessed from the air and easily defended from predators. Like other albatross species, they are monogamous and share in incubation and care of the chicks. They are classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN because of their small breeding range, despite their apparently stable population.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Chapter 90 - analyses/thoughts

First of all, I was expecting (as most people) that the ocean was something that Isayama keeps as an end-game, something for the very end of the manga. Now that we think about it, the last time the ocean was even mentioned before this arc, was in ch4. That’s right, before ch72, the last time the ocean was mentioned was in Eren’s flashback in ch4, before he saved Armin. In ch14, when Armin motivated Eren to close the Trost gate, he mentioned burning water, lands of ice, and snowy fields of sands, but he didn’t mention the ocean. And during the FT arc, the CoT arc, and the Uprising arc, nothing about those things were mentioned. This ‘Basement Arc’ started in ch71, and in ch72 we got our first mentioning of the ocean after 68 chapters. and the ocean was mentioned again in ch73, than in ch81, ch82, and ch84. So it actually did make sense that the ocean was build up for this arc, and that this arc will end with the ocean.

I’ll be using crunchyroll translations, and I’ll start with the ocean, page by page, panel by panel.

The entire ocean scene is obviously focused around Armin, and as soon as he deeps his toes into the water, there’s something between his feet which immediately caught his attention.

Ok, so I genuinely don’t like the movie “Waterworld” but I just watched it with my dad and now all I’m thinking about is a Sterek AU. Like, Derek is the loner guy with his boat and the water and he doesn’t need anyone in his life. But he stops at a floating settlement and meets Stiles, the enigma with a tattoo on his back that supposedly leads to dry land. Bad guy Deucalion and his crew are after Stiles cause they want the map. Derek doesn’t know about the map but he ends up taking Stiles on when the settlement is attacked by Deucalion. Stiles is a pain in Derek’s ass but he slowly starts to grow on him. Derek teaches Stiles how to fish and how to swim. He takes Stiles in his bubble contraption to the bottom of the ocean to see the cities of old. It’s going good until Deucalion finally catches up with them and kidnaps Stiles and leaves Derek for dead. Derek, of course, has feelings for Stiles now, so he goes to save him. There’s fighting and explosions and a joyful reunion and it ends with Derek and Stiles finding dry land and living happily ever after. This is now a need and I have it.

On this day in 1972, the crew of Apollo 17 made a “bull’s-eye landing” as they returned to Earth after a successful lunar mission. All Things Considered reported that the crew’s splashdown in the Pacific Ocean marked “the end of an era of man’s exploration of the moon.” Apollo 17 was NASA’s final crewed lunar landing mission; humankind has not walked on the moon since.

Banxers are the canon species that has settled Polynesia, though not their only inhabited area, Southeast Asia, Australia and Micronesia support the grand majority of the population…


Believed to have originated from Australian Coastline 120000 years ago, the Rets have become the masters of the Pacific Ocean, and have deleloped navigation techniques only parralled by their rivals, the Banxers. Unlike the Banxers, Rets themselves are highly adapted for life at sea, capable of drinking salt water and able to hold their breath up to 15 minutes at a time. While Banxers rarely take any food beyond seeds, nuts and dried fruit with them when settling new land (as their main sources of protein tend to be insects and seafood, Rets manage to carry livestock across the ocean in their small boats. 

The Pacific Island Banxers and Rets have long been in conflict between eachother, wars over islands were common and usually ended badly on both ends. When the Ocos reached the South Pacific, Rets were defiant of their invasion, which Banxers took as an opportunity to ally with the strange new people and defeat their enemy together. While they ended up “winning” and taking control of the Pacific Islands away from the Rets, it was at the price of the chipping away of their own culture, and eventually giving political control to the Ocos over them.

real talk, the regular show is such a good cartoon like every episode is so effortlessly unique and well thought-out. it just works, but its not try hard. the episode where rigby and mordecai try to fuck w benson by turning all the clocks back 3 hours to prove to him time doesn’t matter was so…out of the box. it’s literally an 11 minute episode, but they end up fuking up the park’s time zone moving the whole piece of land somewhere into the middle of the ocean and only until they fix every single clock in the park does everything return to normal. I mean who thinks like that..

The Brazilian Expeditionary Force or FEB consisted of about 25,700 men and women arranged by the army and air force to fight alongside the Allied forces in the Mediterranean Theatre of World War II. Brazil was the only independent South American country to send ground troops to fight in WWII. This air-land force fought in Italy from September 1944 to May 1945, while the Brazilian Navy as well as the Air Force also acted in the Atlantic Ocean from the middle of 1942 until the end of the war. During the eight months of the Italian campaign, the BEF managed to take 20,573 Axis prisoners, consisting of two generals, 892 officers, and 19,679 other ranks. Brazil lost 948 of its own men killed in action across all three services during the Italian campaign.
