“Let me guess, his royal assness as charged you with keeping an eye on me.” The leopard said with a slight his in his throat. He was currently drinking from one of the few small waterholes in the Outlands.
A Very Serious Review Of Waterholes, by G. G. Dog, esq, Resident Forest Puddle/Really Big Stick Quality Control Officer
Peoplefriends with cars are THE BEST. Forest walks are THE BEST. Puddles are THE BEST. Giant sticks are THE BESTEST
Right at the start of the walk, so BEST because convenient. Could dive in straight away before I got hot. Not very deep though and no good sticks. 3 stars.
Peoplefriends called me away before I could grab the nice straight stick an old man was walking around with. Found a better stick not far from there though. BEST STICK.
Middle of the walk, and this one is always full so I zoom ahead long before the peoplefriends get there so I have extra swimming time. It wasn’t as full as last time but still, nice and big, BEST mudding properties, a good cool place to stop and play with BEST STICK. 4 stars.
’ What do you want me to do, dress in drag and do the hula? ’
’ I despise guessing games. ’
’ Oh, goody. ’
’ Yes. Well, forgive me for not leaping for joy. ’
’ When I’m King, what’ll that make you? ’
’ You’re so weird. ’
’ You have no idea. ’
’ Sing something with a little bounce in it. ’
’ I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts. ’
’ Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head… ’
’ Hakuna Matata. It’s our motto. ’
’ What’s a motto? ’
’ Nothing. What’s a motto with you? ’
’ Did I miss something? ’
’ Let me out! Let me out! ’
’ Please don’t eat me. ’
’ Whoa. Talk about your fixer-upper. ’
’ I can’t go back. What would it prove, anyway? ’
’ You can’t change the past. ’
’ You said you’d always be there for me! But you’re not. ’
’ It’s because of me. It’s my fault. ’
’ Ahh, so you haven’t told them your little secret. ’
’ It’s not true. Tell me it’s not true. ’
’ No! It was an accident! ’
’ It’s your fault he’s/she’s dead. Do you deny it? ’
’ Then you’re guilty. ’
’ No, I’m not a murderer! ’
’ Friends? I thought he/she said we were the enemy. ’
’ Don’t ever do that again! Carnivores, ugh! ’
’ We’re pals, right? ’
’ I don’t wonder; I know. ’
’ The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars. ’
’ I always thought they were balls of gas burning billions of miles away. ’
’ Fireflies that, uh… got stuck up on that big bluish-black thing. ’
’ Everything the light touches is our kingdom. ’
’ A king’s time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. ’
’ What’s happened to you? ’
’ You’re right, I’m not. Now are you satisfied? ’
’ You know you’re starting to sound like my father. ’
’ The sooner we get to the waterhole, the sooner we can leave. ’
’ So where are we really going? ’
’ Right. So how are we going to ditch the dodo? ’
’ It’s a tradition going back generations. ’
’ Well, when I’m king, that’ll be the first thing to go. ’
’ Well, in that case, you’re fired. ’
’ Nice try, but only the king can do that. ’
’ Your Majesty. I gravel at your feet. ’
’ Why do I always have to save your… Ahhh! ’
’ I know what I have to do. ’
’ Temper, temper. ’
’ I’ve been running from it for so long. ’
’ Ow! Jeez, what was that for? ’
’ It doesn’t matter. It’s in the past. ’
’ Oh yes, the past can hurt. ’
’ But from the way I see it, you can either run from it, or… learn from it. ’
’ You see? So what are you going to do? ’
’ First, I’m gonna take your stick. ’
’ Good! Go on! Get out of here! ’
’ So you’d better have a good excuse for missing the ceremony this morning. ’
’ Perhaps you shouldn’t turn your back on me. ’
’ I wouldn’t dream of challenging you. ’
’ Is that a challenge? ’
’ I’m afraid I’m at the shallow end of the gene pool. ’
’ There’s one in every family sire. Two in mine, actually. ’
’ Pinned you again. ’
’ What’s going on? ’
’ Oh, dear, I’ve said too much! ’
’ Well, I’m brave. What’s out there? ’
’ All the more reason for me to be protective. ’
’ Well, I suppose you’d have found out sooner or later. ’
’ Just promise me you’ll never visit that dreadful place! ’
’ You run along now and have fun. ’
’ I wonder if its brains are still in there? ’
’ Danger? Hah! I walk on the wild side. I laugh in the face of danger. Ha ha ha ha! ’
’ Do you know what we do to kings who step out of their kingdom? ’
’ Puh. You can’t do anything to me. ’
’ Oh, my, my, my. Look at the sun. It’s time to go! ’
’ Hey! Why don’t you pick on somebody your own size? ’
’ I’m very disappointed in you. ’
’ You could have been killed! ’
’ You deliberately disobeyed me! ’
’ I was just trying to be brave like you. ’
’ I’m only brave when I have to be. ’
’ Being brave doesn’t mean you go looking for trouble. ’
’ Whoah. I guess even kings get scared, huh? ’
’ But you’re not scared of anything. ’
’ We were afraid it was somebody important. ’
’ Tell me about it. I just hear that name and I shudder. ’
’ Yeah, be prepared! We’ll be prepared… for what? ’
’ Long live the king! Long live the king! ’
’ If I told you, it wouldn’t be a surprise, now would it? ’
’ If you tell me, I’ll still act surprised. ’
’ You are such a naughty boy/girl! ’
’ You hear that? If you ever come back, we’ll kill ya! ’
’ So it is with a heavy heart that I assume the throne. ’
’ That’s the stupidest thing I ever heard. ’
’ You know, having a lion around might not be such a bad idea. ’
’ Ah, you’re an outcast! That’s great. So are we. ’
’ I’m telling you, kid: this is the great life. No rules, no responsibilities… ’
’ You mean a bunch of royal dead guys are watching us? ’
’ Come on, I just heard about this great place. ’
’ I’m surrounded by idiots. ’
’ I’m kinda in the middle of a bath. ’
’ So where are we going? It better not be anyplace dumb. ’
’ I’ll show you when we get there. ’
’ The waterhole? What’s so great about the waterhole? ’
’ You’re the king? And you never told us? ’
’ You don’t even know what I’ve been through! ’
’ I finally got some sense knocked into me. ’
’ Please have mercy, I beg you. ’
’ You don’t deserve to live. ’
’ Why should I believe you? Everything you ever told me was a lie. ’
’ This looks like a good spot to rustle up some grub. ’
’ I’ll make it up to you, I promise. ’
’ You got to put your past behind you. ’
’ When the world turns its back on you, you turn your back on the world. ’
’ Bad things happen, and you can’t do anything about it. ’
’ There’s more to being a king than getting your way all the time. ’
’ I’m so hungry I could eat a whole zebra. ’
’ Listen kid: if you live with us, you’re gonna have to eat like us. ’
’ Come on, will you cut it out? ’
’ I thought I knew, but now I’m not so sure. ’
’ What’s that supposed to mean, anyway? ’
’ I’m not the one who’s confused. ’
’ You don’t even know who you are! ’
’ This is just the way your father looked before he died. ’
’ So what’s the plan for getting past those guys? ’
’ No wonder we’re dangling at the bottom of the food chain! ’
’ Where is your hunting party? They’re not doing their job. ’
’ Then you have sentenced us to death! ’
’ Well, it sure is a surprise to see you… ’
’ Hakuna Matata. It means “no worries”. ’
’ These are rare delicacies. ’
’ You have forgotten who you are and so have forgotten me. ’
’ You are more than what you have become. ’
’ How can I go back? I’m not who I used to be. ’
’ Will you stop following me? Who are you? ’
’ What’s going on here? Who’s the monkey? ’

Headcanons for Link, Sidon and Revali finding out that they're S/o is a deity but isn't well known anymore [like by seeing their shine or something]
S/o is a deity
Link will find out when he is out on horseback, the two of you are riding around and he decides to separate from you and the path
Epona will take him to an area heavily overgrown and begins to see ruin with statues missing heads and broken begin to line up to a stone path
Link will leave Epona behind as it becomes too dense to travel through and comes across a temple carved in a cliff face
Link ventures inside, there are huge monuments lining the walls and when he sees the altar at the end he can’t believe his eyes
It is you in odd robes, the statue is worn and moss has overgrown on your face, but it is undoubtedly you
Link takes a step closer when you call out his name, your call echoes hauntingly.
Link doesn’t know what to think, but he comes over to you and grabs your hand
You reluctantly follow him and he’s gesturing to all of it
You tell him that Hylia left you upon Hyrule to look over all her creations, but in time like most things, you became forgotten, and decided to live life as a normal person
He will stand there and observe you, and when the two of you leave he maps where this temple lies
When he brings you back, the temple isn’t in the old shape it was. Sure it was still ruined, but most of the foliage has been cleared and within the temple he spruced up your altar and your statue.
He upkeeps the temple from then on out and you can’t find the words to thank him, but he knows what it means to you
Sidon and you will be swimming around a new waterhole he discovered, but he doesn’t understand why you seem nervous and try to tell him you would like to leave
He’s being hardheaded and as much as he wants to abide by your wishes, he has the urge to stay. He is able to convince you, but he notices you do not venture some points of the waterhole.
He decides that to make you feel better by going underwater to find any treasures travelers might have left behind, but he sees an opening and swims in.
What he discovers leaves him breathless. Upon breaching the surface he is greeted with a huge cave and on the land he sees a circular columns.
He makes his way and sees that the columns are actually statues worn down by tides.
But the statue at the highest point of the circle was spared from the water. Sidon whispers your name when he sees how similar it looks to you.
Sitting before the statue at the bent legs lies a dried up basin and Sidon did not understand why, but he knew he had to fill it.
The moment water touched the basin, the surrounding area felt more alive
Sidon looked above him and saw you sitting on the statues forearm. Your form looked different and surrounded by a luminous glow
”My love, I knew you were out of this world, but I was not aware just how much.”
Revali somehow convinced you to fly upon his back and it was the most fun you had in awhile. Although it was scary, you trusted Revali and he performed tricks
But not too long in this adventure the sky begins to grey in the distance. Revali suggests to find shelter from the time being seeing as lighting strikes the lands ahead
The two of you get caught in a downpour and you cannot see, but Revali seemed to have no issues navigating the heavy rain
He sees an opening on a cliff and as he flew closer noticed worn staircases that had crumble. It lead to a large entrance and he quickly flew in
When he flutters to the ground and helps you off his back, he takes in that the two of you are in a temple
He is confused, however, when you gasp and freeze. He turns around and takes in the massive temple, tall statues of different poses decorate the hall and he went to inspect them not seeing you attempt to stop him
His eyes widen when each statue looks like you and at the end of them all was an altar with relief of you depicted in the sky
He looks at you and even though you’re a bucket of nerves he makes his way to you
”My goodness, [Name]! Why did you not tell me?” He questioned and you tell him that when the stairs had fallen, people eventually forgot who you were
”What an outrage! You are a living blessing and your temple is in shambles! As soon as this storm is over I am personally dragging every heathen back here! What sacrilege!!”
These Australian primitive drawings date back 5000 years. They are believed to represent alien beings known as the Wondjina (Wandjina). These spirit beings are represented as paintings of giant humanoid figures, some measuring close to 23 feet tall. They have gray alien-like eyes, cone-heads and no mouth or ears. These drawings look much like beings in helmets, or having physical qualities like Annunaki, Olmecs or gray aliens.
Interesting that all these civilizations separated by thousands of miles including oceans that they didn’t have the technology to cross, all show visitors from the heavens in the same way. The Waddjina are said to be dreamtime spirits (or spirits of the dreaming) associated with rainbows, clouds, rain, and thunder. They protect crops and create child spirits that must be found within a dream before they can become human babies within the bodies of women. This reminds us of the many stories of aliens interbreeding with humans to create the hybrid races that some believe we all decend from today.
In Aboriginal mythology, the Wondjina (or Wandjina) were cloud and rain spirits who, during the Dream time, created or influenced the landscape and its inhabitants. When they found the place they would die, they painted their images on cave walls and entered a nearby waterhole.
Does Genji ever have a hard time fitting in with the birds in the Water Hole flock?
He didn’t had any
problem… but the birds had ahahah Especially Lucio, who’s still
secretly terrified when Genji is in tiger form.
Genji surely doesn’t help
because he love to scare the shit out of him with pranks, like
chasing him down in hunt-mode and when Lucio change to his human
form, begging for mercy, Genji just change as well, smile and say
“Oh, thankfully I recognized you at the last sec! I was soooo close
to eating you!”
Lucio definitely like him
best when he’s in human form ahahah
If I had even the tiniest inkling of doubt about participating in the mass binding taking place tonight (I don’t.), pulling the equivalent of the Tower from my deck erased it.
In this deck, the XVI card is appropriately named Oppression. It depicts the Wawalek, two Australian aboriginal sister goddesses who unintentionally soiled the waterhole of the Great Serpent Yurlungur with a single drop of menstrual blood. The serpent brought torrents of rain upon them and finally devoured them and their newborns.
In the darkness of Yurlungur’s belly, they wept and wept until they were reborn from his mouth into the light.
Meanings: Feeling overwhelmed, oppressed by circumstances or emotions. Like the Wawalak, the “light” has left your life; you are waiting to be released from the darkness.
Reversed: Though your situation may feel overwhelming and intimidating, hidden forces are at work to transform things for the better. Be patient.
As always, the cards prove their insight is no passing coincidence.
Now bring on the new moon so I can burn this orange cheesedoodle and use the ashes to paint sigils of healing.
An unfortunate bird got a soaking when it was sneezed on by a giraffe. The unlucky oxpecker was clearly in the wrong place at the wrong time and caught in a jet of drool when the giraffe seemingly let out a massive sneeze. Amateur photographer, Lisl Moolman was photographing animals at a waterhole in Kruger National Park South Africa when she captured the funny moment on camera. Picture: LISL MOOLMAN / CATERS NEWS
First love your au, second i was wondering about housing. Do they own houses and sleep in those after they change into human form or do they have dens or other sleeping areas?
It really depends if the shifter is an adventurer/traveler or have a stable pack/clan/flock. While Jesse was a vagabond, for examples, he usually slept in animal form to be quicker to face any kind of danger, and also because it’s a form that it’s suited best to sleep outside. The shambali travelers also sleep under the stars ^^
In clans, pack and flock instead they do have their own “houses” and the structure depend on the area. In Morrison’s clan, they have a big yurt where Tracer, Morrison and Hanzo sleep in separate beds. When McCree join the clan Hanzo have to share his bed with him while they built another bed for him. The Deadlock Pack live in the natural caves of canyons, they’ve put some red curtains on the edge of the entrance and inside they have furniture and stuff. The boss cave have a white curtain (thanks to @mikiri-tohoshima <3) The Shimada Clan is one of the clans with the most complex architecture. They’ve fancy houses built on the edge of the rock, all around the mountain. Hanzo and Genji had a royal palace back when they were princes. The Waterhole Flock have wooden tree-houses that are really up high. Suitable just for birds. The Los Muertos Clan had an underground system of shelters which was kind of similar to the one that the deadlock has. The Talon Clan have wooden stilts houses with big stairs so that they can see if they’re being attacked from the distance. The Overwatch Clan have Torbjorn, so they have this beautiful wooden house that is like the bungalow for the perfect dream vacation in the mountains. Roadie owns a shed that miraculously still haven’t fall down. He decided that Junkrat was allowed to come in only after 3 months of him sleeping on the porch. Blizzard Clan have igloo-shaped houses to keep out the cold :)

After a continuous struggle for months (years) I have lost faith that things in my country would change soon. Everything that has done in recent months seems in vain, I do not want to delve much into the matter but a quick summary, for those who have no idea, is:
I live in Venezuela, where the government does not respect human rights, people die in protests every day, ‘everything is fine’ and now they are closing the radio stations. Television belongs to the government, and I am 100% sure that soon they will start to regulate things like the Internet (they already do it with water and light, there is only water twice a week and light as it comes and goes without control) .
I work on Internet given my history of depression and little tolerance of public places, I literally help my family because my mother’s income (which is the only one who works) is too low. My father is a psychiatric patient and ten years ago he was disabled to work, my grandmother is 83 years old and suffers from Alzheimer’s, my sister is a minor and still can not work. I have spent days without sleep, stressed, hoping that the madness in my country will pass, but at this point I know it will not be so.
I made the decision that we can no longer SURVIVE in this country. What happens when I can not work anymore? What will happen when my source of income leaves? Four months ago the only thing we ate was corn, cassava and banana soups and we used to sell water (in my house there is waterhole and we sell because, as I said, there is never any water) but it never reached. I really can not live in this country any more, I can not live stressed, hoping that tomorrow the prices of the few foods in the markets will increase disproportionately.
What I’m going is: I know it’s none of your business, and many of you will really miss this on their dash, but I need help to raise money to leave the country with my sister. I can not go with my parents, it’s ridiculous. But if we are not going to look for a better future and then remove my family in a future from the misery that is lived in Venezuela, then we will end up under the dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro forever.
I’m not asking for money just because, but if you can donate whatever is a dollar or two, I’ll be more than grateful. I also offer to give something in return, I have some knowledge with HTML and photoshop, I can do themes and graphics, my sister can make icons. You can see the prices under read more.
You can donate, you can do it through my PayPal email@example.com
If you cannot donate, please signal boost this, please, thank you very much.
