tiny horns

Settings I want to see Eri in:

- Eri and Izuku hanging out like siblings

- Eri riding on Mirio’s shoulders, posing hero-like alongside him.

- Eri meeting Shouto and them getting along really well (both had terrible childhoods and understand each other very well)

- Eri hugging Nighteye’s legs - only part she can reach - to say thank you because he helped saving her (everyone’s jaw drops when Nighteye lets it happen)

- Eri being adopted by literally everyone at U.A.

- Eri adopting Izuku as her “Onii-chan” and Toshinori as her Grandpa (she switches to uncle cause Izuku insisted Toshinori is not that old)

- Eri adopting Gran Torino as her (second) tiny little Grandpa (causing Toshinori to howl in laughter at the blunt statement of the tiny, leading to Gran Torino kicking him in the shin)

- Eri going to shop new clothes with Class 1-A, deciding on everything that covers her scarred arms and legs and one summer dress because it’s “pretty”.

- Eri getting her hair styled by the girls from both Class 1-A and 1-B, with specially attention to her tiny horns from Pony-chan.

- Eri meeting Inko, gaining a new second Mum.

- Eri climbing up onto Izuku at night to cuddle with him because she had nightmares and doesn’t want to sleep without Onii-chan.

Situations I don’t want to see Eri in:

The one she’s in right now.

South Africa Just Made It Legal To Sell Rhino Horn. Just a few weeks after poachers broke into a rhino orphanage in South Africa and killed two baby rhinos for their tiny horns, the country made the domestic trade of rhino horn legal. Worth more than its weight in gold, rhino horn is made of keratin, which is the same material as our fingernails. But organized crime groups profit from illegally trafficking the keratin from rhino horn across borders into Asia because of the unfounded superstition that it cures everything from hangovers to cancer. __________________________________________________ The trade of rhinoceros horn has been internationally banned since 1977 because high demand for the horns drives rampant poaching and threatens rhinos with extinction. Susie Watts of WildAid’s Africa Program, told The Dodo in a statement. “There is no domestic demand for rhino horn products and, as the pro-trade lobby very well knows, the reason why the moratorium was implemented in the first place was to prevent domestic trade from being used as a cover for smuggling.”

Five Dollar Words (Music Video)

And even odder, when Mark and Kieran had come into the library, Kieran had gone immediately over to Max and picked him up, delighted by his blue skin and his tiny horns.

Max had stuck his hand into Kieran’s wavy hair and pulled. Kieran had just laughed. “That’s right, it changes color, little nixie-like warlock,” he said. “Look.” And his hair went from blue-black to blue in an instant. Max giggled.

“I didn’t know you could do that on purpose,” said Mark, who had always thought of Kieran’s hair as a reflection of his moods, uncontrollable as the tides.

“You don’t know a lot of things about me, Mark Blackthorn,” Kieran said, setting Max down.

Alec and Magnus had exchanged a look at that, the sort of look that made Mark feel as if they had reached a silent and agreed-upon consensus …

THIS IS SO ADORABLE!!!

I don’t take enough pictures of the lady, but my roommate loved to. So here’s Lolly playing a tiny French horn a few months ago.

I don’t know why, but she never seemed to thrive when we lived in the dorms. Now that I’m back at the house, she’s gained weight, her gills are fluffy, she’s active, her freckles are coming in more… maybe she just didn’t like the dorm water!

Tiny Alice. This Alice is really small.
ALL THIS FUCKIN ROOM…And she this small. Wtf is my problem y'all??

anonymous asked:

Maybe this is a stupid question, but what is the significance of the tiara?

This is not a bad question at all, and the answer lies in Jack Kirby’s Magic Hat World.

Kirby was one of Wanda’s co-creators, and that man fucking loved hats. Some of his most famous hats include that thing Galactus wears on his head and the approximately 5000 different hats Odin wore.

The original Lee/Kirby Wanda wore a wimple. Or at least, it’s sort of like a wimple.

The headwear, whatever shape it comes in, marks Wanda as a product of Jack Kirby. It ties her to a certain era and to one of the greatest comics artists of all time. Obviously, Kirby’s original design is not the most famous one, but I think the headpiece should survive in some form as a nod to him and to her origins.

For a long time, artist Don Heck continued with this wimple/box headpiece, but in Avengers #36, he introduced what would become Wanda’s signature look.

The size of her tiara has varied over the years. It can be huge pointing horns or tiny kitten ears. In the dreadful 90’s, when Edgy™ was in style, she frequently didn’t have a tiara at all or she had a headband that mimicked the shape. Nowadays, she has a more elaborate headpiece that also mimics the shape of her famous tiara and adds jewels and dangling beads.

A lot of characters have headpieces that are in the same vein as this (Storm, Polaris, Enchantress, etc.), but Wanda’s is very, very heavily associated with her character. It is her iconic shape. If she has a logo, it’s the curved M of her headpiece. The tiara itself is not unique per se, and I think, in universe, the explanation is basically “that’s the style.” It’s just a superhero thing, like capes and dead parents.
