venomous frog

anonymous asked:

How would an arrow affect bone? Break it? Bounce off? I suppose this depends on the type of bow and the distance, but I was going to have character A get shot in the shoulder. Character B wants the arrow out as soon as possible in case its poisoned, so he'd have to push it the rest of the way through her body? But what about the shoulder blade?

Break. You have a projectile traveling with enough force to punch it’s way through layers of metal, your bones aren’t going to fare well.

Pulling out an arrow on your own is, in general, a very bad idea. Pushing it through is actually worse. This will cause more damage than simply pulling it back out. Removing it will also clear any obstruction that’s slowing your bleeding. So, like removing a blade, pulling an arrow out carries a risk of increased bleeding and death. Leaving it there and moving around is also a bad idea, because you’re likely to cause more damage. (Not as much as punching it through, but this is still not something you want to mess with.)

If your character thinks the arrowhead is poisoned, they’re going to need to decide which is more dangerous, more poison exposure or bleeding out on the spot.

Although I’m not a toxicology expert, I suspect, if the arrow was poisoned, it’s already too late. This is kind of the point. Getting hit by an arrow is already a life threatening injury, and there’s no real way to soften that blow, so the toxins that actually have a home on an arrow are ones that will just make extra sure you die horribly, and quickly. You could theoretically lace an arrowhead with mercury or the like, but there just isn’t a reason to. It’s passively dangerous to the archer, and it’s not going to make the arrow more deadly. So you get stuff like snake or frog venoms which will kill in minutes, even if the arrow is removed. These tend to be complex protein toxins that do all kinds of horrific stuff to people.

In some cases there’s no treatment, and in others, you need to administer a specific anti-venom as soon as possible. These are not interchangable, you need the right antivenom, not a random concoction.

This is made worse by the fact that most poisons are attached to an arrowhead using a grease as a base. This will easily wipe off the arrowhead, especially once it’s been lodged in a wound.

So, your character’s probably toast.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Eisuke Ichinomiya: Eisuke is the typical Prince Charming of the story, with flawless looks and a beautifully charming background—but of course, with a slight twist. The prince is a haughty and arrogant man in front of most people, but you with the heart of gold always knew: This prince had to be one of the kindest men in the world deep down, especially if he was doing all of those changes to make your kingdom the best it could be. When the invitation for the ball comes from Prince Eisuke’s loyal and obedient advisor, Kenzaki, your stepmother Erika and your twin stepsisters look at you with disdain. There’s absolutely no way they’d let you go, and you knew it. But when you go back to your room in despair after Erika has left, you’re shocked to see two beautifully dressed fairies in your room. Chisato and Sakiko, your two benevolent fairy godmothers, dress you up and get everything set for you to go to the ball. As you step into the ballroom, all eyes are trained on you—especially one particularly intense and dark pair of beautiful eyes…

Soryu Oh: You grew up as a spirited girl, loving all that nature gave you and cherishing everything in your life. The world was your haven, and all things of nature loved you in turn. But when someone new enters you and your people’s world, threatening to change everything you knew to what his people knew, you automatically knew what had to be done. Your people saw his as a threat—but you only wanted to show him what you knew about the world. You bring him to your favorite places and show him all the little things in life, and you teach him to open his eyes to the natural treasures of the world. “There’s more to everything, can’t you see? Can’t you see the normal kind of happiness that we have here in our world?” You chide him lightly as you stare up into his beautiful dark eyes. A warm smile spreads across his face as he responds to you, “I see it now. You’ve shown me that sort of happiness that I want to protect—and I want to thank you.” Taking your hand, the man bows respectfully to you before whispering one last time. “Thank you… Pocahontas.”

Ota Kisaki: You really could not believe that this had happened to you, but you honestly had no choice at all. But, you were going to make the best of it, no matter what. As the day pass for you and the Beast in the castle, you and the Beast grow closer and closer, and your relationship does not take long to evolve into a beautiful friendship. You’ve finally broken all the walls the Beast had put up in front of you, exposing the beautiful and kind him that you knew he harbored within. Getting to his knees, the now handsome man stares at you with love. “You never changed a bit, even as you helped me to bring out the emotions I thought I’d lost forever. You took the time to get past my scary appearance and the side that everyone thought was cruel and horrible. You’ve brought me back to myself, Belle.” His eyes glisten with tears as he pulls you into a tight and grateful hug. You hug him back as you whisper, “I love you. You’re my beautiful, beautiful Beast with a heart of gold—and I love you.”

Mitsunari Baba: You were a sheltered princess as you grew up, always staying at home in the luxurious palace, and barely ever getting a chance to experience a normal life. Of course, one gorgeous day—everything changes. Sick and tired of your royal life in the palace, you dress up as a regular commoner of the land and sneak out of the palace. While walking through the bustling markets, a loud commotion is heard and you turn in surprise to investigate—only to be swept off with a rather handsome man. When the two of you are finally safe from the guards, you learn that this man is one of the street rats of your kingdom. This man is a mischievous one, You note with a small smile. When the two of you leave your hiding spot, you both wish each other well with charming smiles. “I, Baba, hope to see you again, pretty lady.” The man winks at you before disappearing into the still busy streets of Agrabah. Staring after him in his direction, you murmur quietly to yourself as you walk back towards your regal home. “And I you, Baba.”

Mamoru Kishi: Squeezing your eyes shut, you breathe slowly before opening your eyes again—only to let out another scream once more. “Come on now, sweetheart. Stop that screaming, it’s annoyin’.” The other frog grumbles at you lazily before he mutters to himself, “I guess it didn’t work on me—but it worked on you, didn’t it?” His gaze turns back to you in interest and you glare furiously at the rather sloth-like (personality-wise, at least) creature. “Don’t you tell me to stop screaming, mister. You’re the one who got me into this mess—and you’ll be the one to get me out of this mess too, do you hear me? My life will be ruined if you don’t do something to change us back quickly, and understand me very well, but I will very much so kick your lazy ass if you don’t fix this.”You hiss venomously at the frog in front of you, eyes burning with anger. I was having a good life, working hard and pushing myself to always give things my all—but this lazy, good-for-nothing thing comes up and takes it all away?! You think furiously in your head, fuming at this man. But when the two of you get to work on trying to reverse the spell, Mamoru the frog can’t seem to help but be fascinated by you. He watches you as you cook with gusto, always throwing yourself into everything no matter what faced you. A strong resolved girl, huh? Mamoru thinks to himself quietly with a chuckle, his heart warming considerably as his eyes continue to remain glued to you.

anonymous asked:

you said you were looking for fic prompts so im just gonna leave this here: Wing!fic where lots of people in the world have pretty feathery angel/bird type wings but they face discrimination and R has always hidden his wings because they're different (reptile?injured? he just hates them?).One day one of the amis drags him to a protest about wing rights and R is R and says cynical things. Cue chaos and Enjolras being oblivious. Wow that came out really long. Sorry. *runs away*

I kind of tweaked it, so it’s actually an X-Men-type mutant AU, but there are still wings!

Thanks for the prompt!

“Why are you doing this to me, again?” Grantaire mutters as he is herded along the street by Joly and Bossuet.

“Because it’ll be good for you,” Joly says firmly.

“How so?”

“It’s a chance to be among friends.”

“You two are my only friends. Like, literally.”

“Okay, so not friends, but…similar people. People who face the same difficulties we do.”

“Freaks like us,” Grantaire concludes dully. It earns him one of Joly’s bony elbows to his ribs.

“Don’t say that,” he scolds. “Especially not where we’re going.”
