painted gliders

these live on cliffs of colorful rock layers. they’re usually soft pastel colors that can blend into the rock. they’re very good climbers and can hang at very steep angles. they stand at ~3 feet tall. they can’t truly fly but are good gliders, especially in areas with windy cliffs. they have some trouble landing, but their floof lessens the impact. they don’t like staying in open places where predators can get to them & are usually migrating place to place. they stick together in family units & will gather in communities

the horns are constantly growing and are usually worn down so the glider remains aerodynamic. they also use them to leave marks on the rock for identification/communication. some may grow them out for display or fighting. the shapes of the horns are determined by how they’re worn down. gliders may gain more horns if they constantly rub (or bash their heads) at a place where they didn’t have a horn before. horns may end up unbalanced if a glider has a preference for one side

they’re opportunistic omnivores and eat plants, insects, eggs, and any small animals they can catch. they’re not very proficient hunters. it’s kind of difficult for them to take flying things while gliding but some can manage to catch them in their claws and transfer them to their mouths before crashing. they also crave that mineral like salt

they have 1-2 babies that are carried under the wings. the babies start out about the size of an adult mouse and are fed with milk until they can fend for themselves

There will always be those who mean to do us harm. To stop them, we risk awakening the same evil within ourselves. Our first instinct is to seek revenge when those we love are taken from us. But that’s not who we are… When Christopher Pike first gave me his ship, he had me recite the Captain’s Oath. Words I didn’t appreciate at the time. But now I see them as a call for us to remember who we once were and who we must be again.

Could I bug you to share your headcanons for deaf mic🙏? I’m so invested, I love him

sure :D i wrote a bunch here but i’m willing to share some more!!

-when he started teaching, hizashi started holding an after school sign language class. he tends to be a little looser and more himself during this class since it’s technically after school hours. honestly, most of the kids start going because they’re curious about what kind of person present mic is outside of class and about his personal life, but most end up really liking the class a lot and sticking around. 

-hizashi mostly uses hearing aids in his professional life. hearing aids are iffy tho and can actually hurt a lot to use/put in. he takes them out while not teaching when he sticks around in the staff building. most of the staff has picked up enough sign language to generally understand him. if he really needs to get something across and doesn’t want to wear his hearing aids, he’ll kidnap aizawa from whatever class he’s teaching or closet he’s sleeping in to interpret for him. aizawa may act grumpy but he takes his job as an interpreter very seriously

-hizashi does the same thing he does with speaking and tends to throw a bunch of ASL into his JSL conversations. to anyone not used to it, it looks like a fucking mess and no one can understand him until they figure out what he’s doing. aizawa’s basically the only person who can understand immediately. 

-hizashi makes the choice to be mute when he doesn’t wear his hearing aids. he’s still just as flashy as ever, but he typically won’t talk out loud. he can, obviously, but doesn’t like to and chooses not to. he will in emergencies, but otherwise, he uses it as a way to partially give his actual voice a rest.

-people are often fairly surprised when they first experience hizashi without his hearing aids. present mic being mostly-mute really shocks people. hizashi kind of really enjoys the looks of utter shock that come across people’s faces when they realize that he’s mute without his hearing aids. he thinks it’s funny. most of the time, he doesn’t even tell people and leaves them to figure it out for themselves.

-aizawa and hizashi absolutely use sign language to communicate when there’s others around that they don’t want hearing them. sometimes, the students will be in the same room as both aizawa and hizashi and aizawa will be lecturing to the class while having a full on separate conversation with hizashi.

ok so after i buy your fucking ridiculously massive dildo, the next goal is a 1 meter long 22.5 kilogram dildo at $586 called "The Moby"

this ask really scared me because it made me think of the people who buy these and actually use them. who are they, and why havent we figured out they’re aliens yet

It was a tricky situation. The gringos threatened us to gave them more yet we couldn’t offered more as the shipping got harder these past couple of months and they are not our only buyer. When Richard threatened to told his father (who is a high-ranked police officer in this state) about us so we would be held in jail, I know me and Emilio should stepped in for ourselves as we ain’t nobody bitch and this stupid gringo and his cliques are silly if they thought that we would be subordinate to them. When the next deal came and they utterly disappointed with what they got while rolled some in the middle of their wrath to us, they didn’t realize the thing that they just rolled and then passed out as soon as they exhaled their first joint of the day. Their bodies goes limb and minutes later, it totally hollowed up. I squeezed their head and water poured down from their left ear as I captured that in a bottle.
“The essence of them,” I said as I gave the bottle to Emilio
Then, after I slipped myself to Aaron, I drank the bottle of water and smiled as all memories of Aaron seeped in to my mind
“Your turn, bro,” I said with my now smooth and velvety rich white boy voice
Emilio stripped himself and putting away his necklace as he stepped in to Richard’s body, started from the leg first like using a jeans as Richard’s lifeless legs suddenly bulged out due to Emilio’s. His ass now becoming perky and he gave a light squeeze while cheekily grinned
“I love this,”
Then, he adjusted his dick and pushed deep as Richard’s lifeless dick suddenly throbbing with life once more. He quickly put on the blue pants Richard used and then moved on to put the torso and the back. I helped to attach the back and as I pressed Richard’s back to Emilio’s, no more brown and tattooed back as it was replaced with smooth muscular back. He moaned as the sensation became more realistic each second and when he pressed the abs and torso, he moaned even more as he felt the sensation of suddenly having such vascularity. The abs, the pecs, everything just seems matched. Sliding through the flesh, his hand suddenly now already covered with Richard’s slightly veiny hand and as soon as the whole body already covered, I stared at him, at my brother, one last time and then helped him to put on Richard’s face. After finished, he closed his eyes for a while and grabbed his necklace
“Wanna keep some part of me,”
I told him to drink Richard’s essence. He grabbed the bottle and as he gulped more, I can see his eyes turned into more confident stare as more and more of Richard’s cocky persona seeped in and then after finished the bottle, he smirked at me
“We still have enough to helped out our other bros and sist to live their American dream,”
“Better set the target, we have lots and lots of friends that we could choose from thanks to this body,”

I’ve been following you over a year and within this last 6 months you have been like a lot of other blogs where you don’t post Karlie much (because of the josh thing) and you have clearly said you are not a kaylor shipper, yet lately you have been posting A LOT of kaylor. What’s the deal?

I love Taylor. She’s the reason I created this blog. If you followed me at any point last year you would know I was up Kaylors ass.

Post election, I don’t have as much respect for Karlie as I once did, but I find the PR game the girls are playing to be extremely interesting. They cover things up in the most strategic yet obvious ways. I think that in itself keeps me into kaylor, but also I am able to recognize that Taylor and Karlie are in an adult relationship and I respect that relationship because, well, it seems to make Taylor extremely happy. That’s all that matters.

Would you happen to have an ideas for enriching a mouse cage?

It’s been almost ten years since I raised mice, so some of my husbandry is probably out of date.  But here are some of the things I used to do for them:


Take kleenex and wrap some sunflower seeds or peanuts in them.  Let the mice FIND A DELICIOUS TREAT.  Sometimes I’d stuff the wrapped treats in a toilet paper tube to make them really work for it.  And when they were done eating, they’d drag the tissue paper into their den for a good bed. Even just scattering some tissues, paper towels, or toilet paper kept them entertained tbh.


Planted box - literally just some sprouted seeds in a little dirt for them.  They enjoyed eating the sprouts and then digging.  Remember that mice are natural foragers! 


Speaking of natural behaviors, digging is another good one.  Good DEEP substrate helps promote this.  Sure, it’s a bunch to clean but they’re only in this world for a few years.  Make them some damn good years, please.


Little bird toys and cat toys seemed to amuse them, but keep a close eye on those chompers.  Mice can easily chew off flimsy bits of plastic.


Shower hooks were a surprising hit for my mice.  I’d hang some food up on the ceiling—-with ample and safe climbing structures around, of course—-and let the mice figure out how to get it.  A few of my mice would actually keep climbing the rings even after the food was gone. 


Here’s a neat one!  Offering them live mealworms was a lot of fun to my mice.

Thanks for the suggestions on how to get rid of books. @hikergirl suggested that I find a prison book donation program. Ironically, I recently suggested this idea to someone else on Tumblr. 🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️ That’s a big DUH for me.

I found a prison donation program in MA. I think I will take a last look at my books and take them to the Prison Book Program in the next few weeks. I hope that some folks will find them useful. If anyone is interested in doing something similar, visit prisonbookprogram.org

Thanks for the tough love and suggestions.

Hi Peaches! I'd like to know your views on Alex Fierro (from the book series: Magnus Chase) using she/he pronouns depending on the day and the feelings instead of using they/them. I'm interested because there are a few blogs out here who spew absolute bile at Rick for writing Alex that way and I don't think it's wrong, the way he wrote the character. You can be trans/non-binary without specifically only using they/them right? Won't it otherwise be an imposition and a boxing of gender AGAIN?

So full disclosure: just because I write about being transgender doesn’t imply I know EVERYTHING about gender in general. :(

In terms of this book, I haven’t read it, and in terms of gender-fluidity, I don’t know much about it, so I feel as though it’s legitimately out of my place to comment on it.

Here, have a gif of a cat in way of apology. Crookshanks is lovely.

How I block from a side blog on the android mobile app

November 24, 2017 (for mobile users)

The only way to block people (that I know of) from a side blog on the android mobile app is to send the person a message from the desired side blog. You can then block them through the messaging system by selecting the three little dots at the top of your screen, which brings you to the block option.

Given the content of this blog I have to block a lot of scum. I also manage this blog primarily from mobile. Naturally, I don’t want to think too much about what I send these living turds because it would take a lot of time (which they really don’t deserve). So, I send these embarrassing excuses for humans exactly one emoji: 💩. This cryptic digital dump I take in their messages is the first and last interaction I will ever have with them.

I thought I would share my methods for anyone who might find them useful.

Interview: August

Today we’re joined by August. August is a phenomenal visual artist who specializes in drawing people. They focus on body diversity, drawing bodies in a variety of shapes and sizes. They also enjoy drawing transgender and nonbinary characters as well. They have a very refreshing approach to art and believe people can be beautiful without being oversexualized or fetishized. Their work is gorgeous, as you’ll soon see. My thanks to them for taking part in this interview.

WORK

Please, tell us about your art.

Hello! My name is August and I use the pronouns They/Them. I’m currently a university student working on my BA for Multimedia. My art is more often digital and focuses on women of color. I also really enjoy drawing transgender and nonbinary characters as well. It wasn’t always my focus, but the reason I shifted to drawing this particular genre is because I myself am a person of color and it’s hard to find artwork that doesn’t just fetishize our bodies, but empowers us. With that said, my main focus is heavier set bodies that fit “media standards”. Bodies are beautiful and I want to be able to portray a love for every shape and size with honor and dignity. I’ve heard people describe my mission as “political” but I don’t think it’s political to want a female body to appear beautiful without oversexualization.

What inspires you?

What inspires me on a regular basis is music. Music is such a big part of my life and with all of my anxiety, it does a wonderful job of keeping me grounded. It doesn’t happen with every song I listen to, but every now and again I’ll listen to something and it will paint such a vivid image in my mind that I have to grab a sketchbook and start a new piece. It isn’t always immediately obvious how music inspires each piece, but I think that’s something I can hold for myself and not feel like I have to explain to anyone. It’s a personal experience, after all.

What got you interested in your field?  Have you always wanted to be an artist?

I wouldn’t say I always wanted to be a visual artist. But for as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to create something. In middle school I was part of the after school newspaper, and wrote stories for each issue. Sometimes I wrote poetry and most other times I would sit alone and draw in a notebook. What eventually stuck with me the most was my visual artistry and ever since then I’ve been dedicated to improving my craft.

I suppose one of the main reasons I became interested in the arts is the fact that I was born with a physical disability that prevented me from being incredibly active. Art was one of the few things I could do that didn’t involve running around and it really means a lot to me in terms of expressing myself. Everyone deserves an outlet, whatever that may mean to them and for me, that is art.

Do you have any kind of special or unique signature, symbol, or feature you include in your work that you’d be willing to reveal?

Nothing that I’ve intentionally kept secret! I do have one quirk though and that is I only draw four fingers per hand. I don’t have a particular reason why and sometimes people will point it out, thinking I made a mistake. I suppose it dates back to when I started really focusing on drawing people. There were some artists I followed that drew in a cartoonish style and their characters all had four fingers per hand. I adopted that style and since then it’s just always been a thing of mine. I think it’s cute!

What advice would you give young aspiring artists?

The biggest piece of advice I can give is to never compare yourself to others. Everyone is on their own path and it’s not fair to judge your progress by theirs. You’re not trying to be exactly like them, so why does their own talent matter to you?

If anything, I would say compare yourself to yourself. On days where I feel frustrated with my art for whatever reason, I look back on past pieces I’ve done. It always helps me, because I can see what I’ve improved on and where I used to be before. Something else I’d also like to offer is that if you draw every day, or even every now and again, you have a talent. You have an artistic bone inside you and the only way it can grow is practice and repetition. Anyone can be an artist if they put time and energy into their craft.

ASEXUALITY

Where on the spectrum do you identify?

I identify as asexual. It’s something I’ve struggled with my whole life and it’s only been recently that I felt the term “asexual” described my feelings. So far, it’s been working just fine!

Have you encountered any kind of ace prejudice or ignorance in your field?  If so, how do you handle it?

Sometimes when I create characters, people like to know their romantic backstories. I always get a confused look when I tell them a certain character isn’t really interested in the sexual aspect of a relationship. Normally I just shrug off any off hand opinion. It’s my art, my character and my choice.

What’s the most common misconception about asexuality that you’ve encountered?

The most common, which I think anyone under the umbrella can relate to, is that people assume I’m just confused about sex and that I shouldn’t judge it if I haven’t tried it. Another one is that I’ve been told it isn’t real love if you don’t have sex. Which I think is a ridiculous assumption to make and only exists to pressure someone into sexual activity against their personal comfort. If anyone tries to pressure you into a sexual situation and you’re not comfortable, leave. You’re not a bad person for taking control of your body.

What advice would you give to any asexual individuals out there who might be struggling with their orientation?

Everything is okay. You’re okay. I’m someone who likes to be labeled, because I’ve lived so long without knowing who I was and why I was feeling the way I was that I felt lost and confused. Sometimes I convinced myself it was a phase and I’d grow out of it eventually. But labels help me understand who I am and what I’m about. Other people hate labels. They don’t want to fit into another box and decide that whatever they feel is good enough without a name. And that’s okay too. If you want a label, keep doing research and talking to various members of the queer community. If you don’t want a label, then simply learn to be comfortable with just existing and focus on what makes you happy. There’s no time limit and if it take another week or 5 years to figure yourself out, that’s okay too. And don’t forget, labels change. You aren’t a liar if you chose one label today and another tomorrow. It’s part of the learning process.

I believe in you my friend.

Finally, where can people find out more about your work?

I’m hoping to establish an online presence again soon, but for now, a few of my pieces can be found on my personal Tumblr: blackjackink.tumblr.com

It’s a bit of a mess, but like I said, I’m going to try and create a personal space for my art. Stay tuned!

Thank you, August, for participating in this interview and this project. It’s very much appreciated.
