three toed sloths

Ok so I’ve always loved nature documentaries, and Planet earth 2 is so far possibly the best one I’ve seen, and I felt inspired so

I’m gonna make a watercolour painting of the focus animal of each segment of the series AKA hoo boy what have I gotten myself into

1. Pygmy three-toed sloth

More planet earth 2 paintings

Overdue Notice

pairing: Moana x Ariel (moariel)

words: 3k

summary: Moana really wants her book she has on call from the library, it’s been three weeks and it should have been returned by now, when she finally runs into the redhead on campus who’s checked it out it’s more of an experience than she bargained for to finally check it out

The lesbian Disney college AU no one asked for.

Valuable and ingenious he might be, thought Jack, fixing him with his glass, but false he was too, and perjured. He had voluntarily sworn to have no truck with vampires, and here, attached to his bosom, spread over it and enfolded by one arm, was a greenish hairy thing, like a mat - a loathsome great vampire of the most poisonous kind, no doubt. ‘I should never have believed it of him: his sacred oath in the morning watch and now he stuffs the ship with vampires; and God knows what is in that bag. No doubt he was tempted, but surely he might blush for his fall?’

No blush; nothing but a look of idiot delight as he came slowly up the side, hampered by his burden and comforting it in Portuguese as he came.

‘I am happy to see that you were so successful, Dr Maturin,’ he said, looking down into the launch and the canoes, loaded with glowing heaps of oranges and shaddocks, red meat, iguanas, bananas, greenstuff. ‘But I am afraid no vampires can be allowed on board.’

‘This is a sloth,’ said Stephen, smiling at him. ‘A three-toed sloth, the most affectionate, discriminating sloth you can imagine!’ The sloth turned its round head, fixed its eyes on Jack, uttered a despairing wail, and buried its face again in Stephen’s shoulder, tightening its grip to the strangling-point.

Sometimes you just got to hang in there and go toe to toe to toe with your day!

One thing that I’m really glad has mostly gone aaay from tumblr are the posts that would be like “OK LISTEN UP SHITHEADS THIS IS WHY THREE TOED SLOTHS ARE SO FUCKING AMAZING”

Trials of Apollo Spoiler
  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: So wait, when Kayla was a fetus where was she? Did she grow in her Canadian archer dad and he got a C section or did Apollo turn into a three toed female sloth and give birth to her? Was she born like Annabeth? Like she just came to life? How did Apollo explain Kayla to her Canadian archer dad? Seriously could you imagine being Kayla's Canadian archer dad? Like one day you shooting arrows and dating a hot guy and then the hot guy's like "oh, by the way, here's our child go raise her now". How did Apollo explain this whole being a god thing? Did Kayla's Canadian archer dad date other guys after Apollo? How did he explain Kayla? And when Kayla made it to camp did everyone expect her to have a godly mom? When Apollo claimed her and they were all like what? How did the rest of the Apollo cabin treat her when she moved in? Were they used to this? Were they surprised? Come to think of it, Frank is both Canadian and an archer. Does Frank know Kayla's Canadian archer dad? Are Frank and Kayla going to be friends because they're both Canadian and archers? The Canadian archer dad is named Darren Knowles- Darren Knowles= Darren Criss? Why would Darren Criss be Canadian? Can demigods do this? What if Will knocks Nico up? Or what if Nico knocks Will up? If Apollo inpregnated someone in his mortal state would they be demigod or a regular mortal? WHAT HAPPENED IN ALBANIA?
