!! This post contains photos and descriptions of dead animals, skinned
animals, decomposition, maggots, and the general gory details involved
with cleaning up bones.
I’ve gotten a couple asks about the methods I use to clean bones,
so I thought I’d put together a quick summary of the journey of my
female Badger, Ridge, from road to shelf. It’s not really a tutorial,
but I have almost kind of written it like one - keep in mind this is just
Ridge’s personal cleanup journey, and all the steps she went through while being processed
(it’s pretty similar for all my roadkill though) It’s a bit garbled and I haven’t really clarified anything… Hm. Maybe I will put together a proper tutorial in the future. For now, this is Ridge~
*whispers* Okay, guys.Imagine this: The bae waiting for you by the fireplace when you get home late one night. He’s obviously tired, but he stayed up anyway -the magazine he’s reading has been his only company, and even with the small distraction he can’t seem to hide the fact that he’s annoyed.
I have literally just been staring at the photo and I don’t know how to fucking function like fucking hell I was fine! Life was great! And he just has to wEAR THAT FUCKING SHIRT LIKE HE KNEW IT WOULD FUCKING DESTROY ME I JUST I DON’T I AM SO DONE FUCK EVERYTHING THIS BLOG IS CANCELLED SEOKMIN IS CANCELLED SEVENTEEN CANCELLED LIFE IS CANCELLED GOODBYE
“I’ll find you—Keep calling for me, Viola— I want to read these books for the first time again ! But I don’t want to think about the movie cast (if it is official or not), as I am not really happy about it. I just want to keep the way I picture them in my head : )
I am back from the dead, I hope you guys are doing well, and - it is still time - happy new year everyone ! I wish you all the best for 2017, it is going to be fine : )
Last time I posted something was last year, time flies by but I am back on track. I am sorry it took so long.
I have an other illustration from Chaos walking just waiting to be done, and many other things I want to show you !

Rei was feeling a little under the weather, so Mini bought them matching sweaters and invited him over for a Christmas-in-January party. They shared a bowl of soup, watched 80’s movies, and sipped on ginger tea. Needless to say, Rei was feeling much better.
Five Shadowcasters arrived in Lucittia in 1806. Aurora Carlisle
married Lukas Ashe, the Count of the Highlands. Levente Kedves married Sophia
Durand, the future Countess of the Lakes. Hugo Trevethan married her best
friend, Greis Samsa – as their families have lived next door to each other (on
both sides of the aisle) for the better part of a thousand years. Athanasia
Dubois was mother to the future Duchess Rachel Dubois de Mario.
But what of the fifth Shadowcaster? What of Daniel Solovyov?
Daniel Solovyov was born in the previous Enlightened
settlement in 1786, barely survived the battle of 1806, and then joined the
Lucittian merchant marine. He took up with the Duke de Mario and his trading opportunities,
volunteering to be the go between for the island and their various trading
establishments. He was responsible for striking up trade with England, where he
met an upper class merchant and his daughter, Genevieve
Michelakakis (1789-1871). When Daniel discovered that her father was embroiled
in the Atlantic slave trade, Daniel turned to piracy, commanding his ship of
Ornithoon men to disrupt the slave trade as best possible. The merchant
claimed later that Daniel kidnapped his daughter, but according to the records
of everyone on Lucittia at the time, Genevieve happily ran away with the
dashing Russian pirate. They married on Lucittia in 1810 and Daniel was off to
continue both his legitimate trading and also his piracy. They had two children
and despite the fact Daniel was a pirate, he lived to the ripe old age of 83.
descendants continued to captain the Catherine’s
Revenge until well after piracy had gone out of fashion. His current
inheritors include Luca and Greis Dervishi, apothecaries who have been unsatisfactorily
linked to several cases of possible domestic poisonings, Robin Merlo, a disgruntled
and displaced Collector who joined the Shadowcasters as soon as he was able,
and Felix Lagana, the last captain of the Catherine’s
Revenge. The ship remains in the Phospolis harbour.
