‘Tis the season! Tatqiq, Chinook, and Kalluk woke up to a winter wonderland last week. Our
polar bears came to us as orphans. With little to no chance of survival
in the wild, we’re happy to provide them a sanctuary here. As the
largest land carnivore, polar bears have no natural predators, but
climate change has led to record-breaking sea
ice losses and human activity continues to threaten their existence.
See how we’re working to save this iconic Arctic ambassador and how you
how long ago? can it be measured in time? no. it could have been yesterday, a second ago. it could be happening now, I don’t really know. I carry it with me, tis not a burden to bear. the taste of your lips, the scent of your hair. your breath as you exhale, that just hangs in the air…
I want to capture each one of those crystalline jewels on the tip of my tongue, a taste of you, a taste of us forever young.
Flowers bloomed between our bodies every time we kissed
And our roots became a tangled mess.
The thorns underneath our petals escaped our notice
Until it was too late to stop the flow of blood dripping from the wounds we accidentally inflicted.
When we stopped watering our love,
The flowers grew dark and cold.
Our innocence transformed into malicious intent
We drank each other’s harsh words, believing it was an elixir to ease our minds
And not the poison it so clearly was.
When you handed me the knife to cut our ties,
I found I couldn’t bear to break the melancholic remainder of what we had
The knife was too dull
And I recoiled from the pain over and over again
619. Some Slytherins actually fought with the Order during the final battle, but knowing that their house colors could make them targets of accidental friendly fire, they transfigured their robes and ties to Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff colors.
Very very old (and kind of bad) demo of a first draft of what became “The Duel” from Great Comet. In this version, Pierre is drunkenly playing with a bear; he pretends it is Napoleon and tries to kill it as Anatole and Dolokhov cheer him on. They are interrupted by a policeman; Pierre ties the bear to the policeman and throws them in the river before passing out. (x)
Lunarian is the replacement for “fem-aligned”. It means having a complicated but nonetheless existing relationship with fem genders and/or alignment.
Solarian is the replacement for “masc-aligned”. It means having a complicated but nonetheless existing relationship with masc genders and/or alignment.
Stellarian is a new term used to describe rejection of the gender binary and any and being categorized as either binary gender. Someone who is stellarian can also be lunarian or solarian (stellunarian/nebularian, stelsolarian/novarian) but is defining their relationship with fem/masc-gender and/or alignment by how much they reject the ties they bear to said genders/alignments.
It’s a bit confusing, seeing as the whole point of ‘stellarian’ is to align yourself with rejecting alignment, but they’re two different kinds of alignment I believe.
You can be sollunarian (eclipsian), or even solstellunarian (galaxian). It’s all very complicated, and I recognize that it’s quite vague terminology, but at least it’s a replacement for the exorsexist terminology cis and binary trans people have been using for us.
I call it the galactian system. It isn’t perfect, because it relies on a trinary range of identities that can be categorized into 3 different sections, but it’s a far cry from the gender binary. Also, I’m bitter because someone who is violently nbphobic took several of the urls of these terms, so that people who need them couldn’t use them.
Hi, I saw your Valentine's Day special and I thought to request! So if I may, can I please request a Jeonghan one shot/drabble where he gets a really big teddy bear for you, but you already bought one for yourself. If you're able to make this happen, thanks for your hard work!
Valentines, the only day in the year that’s entirely dedicated to love. The shops are full of chocolates, hearts, pink and red balloons, and of course teddy bears.
Valentines and teddy bears seem to be tightly tied together, it wouldn’t be Valentines day without the store shelves being filled with teddy bears in varies sizes.
From little plushy keychains to gigantic teddy bears that everyone seemed to love and want. You were also like that.
You would go on and on to Jeonghan about how much you wanted one, how cute it would be and how you could use it as a second bed!
So here he was, standing in front of the huge stack of teddy bears in varies sized and colors.
Pink teddy bears, brown, black, yellow heck there was even a green one.
Yea, definitely not getting the green one.
You would think choosing a teddy bear wouldn’t turn out being that hard,but no. People were literally fighting over them, which caught Jeonghan off guard.
They’re just teddy bears people! No need to pull your hair out because of them…
He’d been looking for the perfect Teddy bear to buy you, you never specified what you wanted…you just said you wanted a big teddy bear that was almost the size of your bed.
But then he saw it, the perfect one.
It was a light brown teddy bear with a big red bowtie around it’s neck. It was big, like really big, and it probably cost a lot too.
Taking a look at the price, Jeonghan almost gave up on the thought.
But, he got it anyway. Sure his wallet had suffered a bit…okay a lot, but it was all going to be worth it when you’ll see it.
Jeonghan should have expected that with the size it’s weight would be pretty big too, cause damn.
Struggling to carry the stuffed toy up the stairs without letting it get dragged on the ground, was easier said than done.
Finally reaching your shared apartment, he opened (well tried at least) the door, the smell of chocolate cookies meeting you on the way.
“I’m home Jagiya!”
Jeonghan was excited to say the least to see your reaction…but first he needs to get the bear through the door.
“Welcome home Hannie!” You shouted from the kitchen. “Guess what I did today?”
When the boy finally managed to get the big bear through the door, he let out a sigh Finally. “Make cookies?”
Giggling you responded “That too, but no,” walking out of the kitchen you went to hug your boyfriend, but.
“Happy Valentines day!” Jeonghan had said from behind the big stuffed animal, he couldn’t really see you, so he obviously couldn’t see your shocked face.
“You got me a big teddy bear?”
You started laughing, Making the boy in front of you question what so funny was.
Putting down the gift he looked at you. “What’s so funny?”
“Well, The thing I did today was, I bought one for myself too.” You managed to say through your giggles.
Finding this situation seriously ridiculous, the beautiful man joined you in your fit of giggles.
I sat within the valley green, I sat me with my true love My sad heart it was torn between, the old love and the new love The old for her, the new that made me think on Ireland dearly While soft the wind blew down the glen and shook the golden barley
‘Twas hard for me those words to frame to break the ties that bound us But harder still to bear the shame of foreign chains around us And so I said, “The mountain glen I shall seek at morning early And join the brave united men” while soft winds shake the barley
I kissed away my true love’s tears, my fond arms round her flinging When a foeman’s shot burst on our ears from out the wildwood ringing A bullet pierced my true love’s side in life’s young spring so early There she died upon my breast while soft winds shook the barley
And blood for blood without remorse I came to Oulart Hollow And laid my true love’s clay cold corpse where I full soon must follow And round her grave I wander drear, noon, night and morning early With breaking heart when e'er I hear the wind that shakes the barley
The UN is holding a competition to find out which intelligence agency is truly the best. The CIA, KGB and Syrian agencies show up for the competition. The rules are simple, a rabbit is released into the woods and the team to find the rabbit the fastest wins. The rabbit is released and the CIA use their satellites and technology and find the rabbit in 2 hours. The rabbit is released again and the KGB use their stealth hiding in trees and find the rabbit in 1 hour. The rabbit is finally released and the Syrians run after it in the woods. 1 hour, 2 hours, 6 hours…nothing. So the CIA and KGB go in to look for their Syrian counterparts. They find a bear tied to a tree and a Syrian officer pacing bath and forth in front of it smoking his cigarette ,“ I am going to ask you for the last time, confess you are a rabbit”
