this took forever oh man

The basilisk (Naja regula) and the cockatrice (Regulus gallus) do have overlapping distributions, but they are not the same creature.
The basilisk is the tiniest of spitting cobras, maxing out at only around 12-14 inches. However, it is also among the most venomous, and packs both a deadly bite and the ability to spit blinding venom several feet away with deadly accuracy. But before you get too disappointed, there may be some truth to the reports of insta-death odors and environment wrecking toxins as well, though not in the way you might think. These diminutive serpents dwell in volcanic regions surrounding the Red Sea and along the Great Rift Valley, where hidden gas vents may have made it appear that local flora and fauna have dropped dead for no reason.
The cockatrice, meanwhile, is a much showier beast. A flightless member of the wyvernidae family, it is swift footed and aggressive. Both sexes possess the red head and wattle, but the male’s crest is much more pronounced and swells with blood during mating rituals and threat displays. All dragons can spit up the contents of their stomach to some degree; the genus Regulus has honed this defense mechanism to a precise spurt of chemicals that can cause a painful burning sensation and blindness, much like the spitting cobra. This is generally a last resort; they prefer to simply bite and kick.
The female lays 3-5 eggs in a shallow depression lined with dry grass and leaves. It is up to the male to incubate the eggs and protect the chicks from predators, especially mongooses, which seem undeterred by the cockatrice’s aggressive nature. Cockatrices are found in Northern Africa, as well as parts of Southern Europe.

An assortment of Brainstorms which I never liked enough to upload by themselves.

1. The second Transformers fanart I ever drew! I remember it took me approximately Forever to draw, oh man I’ve streamlined my robot-drawing process so much since I started.

2. My friend told me to draw a human Brainstorm so I Tried. Very inspired by these designs because for some reason they got stuck in my head as What Brainstorm Looks Like.

3. A Brainstorm who was supposed to go with this Perceptor until I decided I was unhappy with how I’d drawn him. Still need to draw a proper fanart for the science nerds ship at some point.

This is a long time to draw and I took a few breaks, too but it’s finished. So here’s the late night crew with guests at a spooky outdoors. And I’m sure they’ll be just fine. Also, I accidentally drew scott and riskem look the same…

@darcylovette HeyYY I don’t know if you remember me, but I’m that one Jackass dude who said he’d do fanart so……… *throws fanart at yo face*
Man oh man this took forever. @markiplier @crankgameplays

“What are you waiting for? An invitation?” The unkept male sneers, rolling up his sleeves as he gritted his teeth as he came around the hood of his broken down car, wanting to start a fight with the other male leaning on his motorcycle as they were both opposite the entrance of the airport. Charcoal colour coated the other male’s marble body, silk black leather jacket, trailing down towards his ripped jeans, earrings were silver singular small loops and onyx gemstone hair making his ice cutting orbs remain hard fixed towards the middle aged man asking the question mockingly, ripping away patience and tranquility at that split second.

Iwatobi, Samezuka, and Kisumi's reaction to finding out their gf is a virgin (assume the boys have all done the do before)


Makoto: Even if it isn’t his first time, he can’t stop the way he shakes when clothing starts to come off. He sensed that something was wrong right away when she grabs his hand before her pants can come off and quickly blurts out that she’s a virgin. He breaks out into a sweat and blushes deeply, scolding himself for getting too carried away. As if trying not to scare her, he touches her face gently and kisses her lips over and over again. “I’m sorry…” He keeps whispering. “I’m sorry. You don’t have to do anything if you don’t want to. It’s my fault.”

Haruka: Sex isn’t something he can ever get used to no matter how many times he’ll do it, so it might feel like his first time all over again. But the way she’s so hesitant gets him a bit doubtful, so he tries to push it aside until she stops him to let him know that he’s her very first. His eyes widen. “Your first… ever? With me?” His eyes suddenly grow concerned and he starts to back off a little. “Sorry. We should stop, then.” It takes a lot of convincing and shaky kisses before they go any farther, but it’s likely that they’d just cuddle for the rest of the night.

Nagisa: He feels so hot that he might melt, but he wonders if it’s just a part of her personality that she’s so submissive and a little unsteady. He kisses her excitedly, not wanting to have to wait to experience a sensation like that with her, but she’d need to hold his face in her hands and make eye contact before telling him the truth. A part of him is both scared that she’ll leave him but mostly honored that he’s the first she’s done this with. He takes her hand and looks at her seriously. “Don’t worry, ___-chan. I’ll make sure to make you feel good, so…” He kisses her. “Don’t go, okay?”

Rei: Rei isn’t ever sure what’s the best thing to do in intimate times, so he’s just as big of a fumbling mess as he was the first time. He has to ask before he can touch anywhere, so eventually when they reach a certain point he blushes and asks if she’s ready to go all the way. When he finds out that she’s a virgin, he scrambles off her and sits up straight, blushing profusely and pushing up his glasses. “I-I’m so sorry, I wasn’t aware of that! Please forgive me!” After he settles down a little bit, he looks away and softly kisses her cheek. “…But please let me know when you’re ready. I promise to wait patiently for you.”

Rin: He feels like it’s only natural to take the initiative in a situation like this, so he doesn’t do much in terms of holding back while kissing her neck and letting his hands wander a bit more. Honestly he’s excited to test out what he knows from his past experiences, but a shock of fear and surprise runs through him when she stops him. When it finally sinks in that she was saving a moment like this for him, he gets a bit teary-eyed and kisses her while holding her face. “Stupid.” He whispers while nuzzling her nose. “You should’ve said so earlier. I don’t wanna hurt you.”

Sousuke: Even if he’s usually level-headed in most circumstances, nothing can ever help calm how heated he gets during intimacy. He kisses her strongly and wraps his arms around her, not wanting to let her go. He gets so into it that she needs to actually grab his hand or pull him away before he can actually hear and process what she’s saying. “Oh… I see. Why with me?” Deep down, he’s touched at her sincerity, and leans back to smile and brush a hand through her hair. “I love you, y’know? You don’t need to feel ashamed about anything. We’ll go as slow or fast as you need to.”

Nitori: His heart is pounding so hard that he might burst, but he still wants to savor the moment and starts to slip his hands up her shirt, hesitantly touching at her skin. His last time suddenly feels like it was a million years away and he’s having trouble remembering what little experience he had, so he tries not to be so clumsy this time around. He might actually feel a bit relieved to hear that he was their first; it made him feel special, and there might be a reason for him to back off because he wasn’t very confident to begin with. He takes their hands and litters their face in light kisses. “I’m sorry. Do you want to stop?”

Seijuurou: He’s quite good at reading people, but even so he can definitely tell something’s off when he realizes that she’s shaking a little. Pausing from his movements, he lifts himself up to touch her face and make eye contact. “Hey… something wrong?” She might be reluctant to tell him the truth, but he’d manage to hear it one way or another and take the news rather well, getting a bit emotional. “…I see. So… I’ll be the first to see a face like that from you, huh?” He kisses her temple. “I got it. I can wait.”

Momotarou: He’s a bundle of nerves trying to make her feel good, but he’s still clumsy and way too energetic to keep still, so he sticks to kissing every inch of exposed skin by tugging up at her shirt a little bit. He’d also be one to need a call of his name or have his face touched before he’s really paying attention to what she’s saying, and his eyes go a little wide before bouncing away. “S-Sorry! I didn’t hurt you or anything, did I? I-I just… couldn’t really help it… B-But I really want you! O-Okay?” He gives her a few apology kisses with a desperate look.

Why do you you like Diomedes and Odysseus so much? (Please be very detailed, I'm really interested in this ship!)

oh man i took FOREVER to reply to this, i needed time to prepare myself for talking about these two.

  • they drowned a guy on their first date
  • they make each other worse. on their own, diomedes is pretty chill and odysseus isn’t the worst, but together they kill dozens and loot their bodies
  • they’re both favorites of athena, my fav goddess
  • they make a damn good team. together, they found achilles, killed the king of thrace and stole his horses, stole the palladium, and got pyrrhus and philoctetes. they get shit done.
  • i really love characters that are kinda awful and these two definitely fit the bill
  • the end of book 10 of the iliad, because they literally take a bath together and then get dinner, which would be cuter if they hadn’t just killed a dozens guys
  • they’re both really smart and i love smart characters being smart at each other
  • all of the vases with them is HILARIOUS 
  • they are literally burning together in hell according to dante, how could you not ship them???
  • usually diomedes has a pretty firm moral compass, but he throws that out when he hangs out with odysseus
  • they really seem to think highly of each other and like working together
  • diomedes is probably shorter than odysseus
  • please imagine penelope and diomedes making fun of odysseus together
  • basically, they’re terrible and i love them
