Yuuri enters the bedroom with a dry cough. “What is this, exactly?” Victor props himself on one elbow with a dazzling smile. “I had it custom made.

Polytheist Tip: Devote school/work assignments to your gods

For example, I’m going to devote my essay about bee crop pollination and it’s relation to the young farmer’s movement to Freyr

I met this guy today who was like 20 and unironically said “aw shucks” he brought the whole house Klondike bars because my grandpa likes them and he offered to go out and warm my car for me when I was leaving my grandparent’s house and he handed me my shoes and opened the door for me and was just so sweet??? To everyone??? Angels are real and he’s a young adult dairy farmer in rural Michigan

Weed Dating

Have you ever heard of weed dating? It is a fantastic concept that is gaining popularity all around North America for sure. I’m sure it’s all over the world - good ideas travel fast these days.

Anyway, you get to meet up with like-minded, farmer types, make friends and help out a fellow farmer at the same time. It is a great way to have fun, make friends, find farming partners/co-workers, or maybe even that special someone.

So for all of you fellow weirdos that LOVE weeding (as I do) - know that you are not alone. :)

Hello !! I really love your art. I keep scrolling all your blog almost everyday ♡♡♡. I saw your drawings of the au with young Gabriel and Jack farmer. Do you have tips for using the grey maker ? I got several ones but I feel like I'm more coloring the character with several nuance of grey instead of doing like you do with just a light grey that lighten up and make the drawing nice. Thank you ♡ I hope to see more art of you ♡♡

thank you for your kind message anon. >/////< I’m happy to know you like my art this much to check it daily am truly honored <3

about your question. I apply grey areas only to give the picture more depth, instead of leaving it plainly Black and White. it’s not really coloring. the closest example ( and actually where i learn and still learning this ) is toning in manga. 

here’s a small example (it is digital not in markers, but this is how i use grays in both mediums anyway) 

line art: it’s plain, characters and BG are all equal. you can’t really separate them.

the toned picture: now you can visually separate the background from the characters and you can tell that one of them has different skin color.and the clothes they’re wearing is dark shade of something (green in this) you don’t need to add more shading to the grey areas, yes it’ll make the picture look much better. but in comics you don’t have the time to color each panel in grey scale so you basically take the basic values (grays) to separate the objects you have. you need one or two hues to do the work. 

you can try this using your markers and before adding grey try to balance the black and white areas.

I am not really good in explaining things XD but I hope this answered your question. ^^



I’m looking into acquiring a farm through adverse possession, or in layman’s terms, squatting. The average age of the American farmer is well over 57.6 years of age. A large majority of farmers are soon to retire. The irony is that farmland is too expensive for young farmers to afford. 

The New York Times tells the tale of one young couple who tried to purchase farm land.

Emily Oakley, who had worked on an organic farm in California, moved with her husband, Mike Appel, to Oaks, Okla., in pursuit of cheap farmland. But even though they had $25,000 saved, the couple could not get a bank loan. When they applied for a government loan, the loan officer threw back his head and laughed.

“He’d never met anybody coming in for a loan for an organic vegetable production,” Ms. Oakley said. “He thought, ‘These are young, naïve, romantic, idealistic kids who didn’t know what they’re getting themselves into.’ ”

I’ve decided that nothing will stop me from starting my new career. And in my latest attempt to begin, I’ve found an abandoned farm that I want to take over through adverse possession. I found this place on an abandoned places website. It is said to be on 300 acres. As you can see, Mother Nature has begun to reclaim the brick house, but its former glory is still visible. Since bricks don’t rot, the house could be restored. I hope to claim it as my own and begin farming the land.

This may seem unorthodox, but the System we live in makes even the most humble goals such as becoming a farmer unattainable. So I’m going to go see the farm and find out if this is feasible.

A bright eyes young farmer has set up a small stand on the side of a road your party travels often.

1. The food starts off looking delicious and fresh, and every time you pass after it becomes more and more horrendous. Does she ever leave?

2. She’s saving up to become an adventurer! She’s too sweet. She won’t last. Her older sister, in disguise, regularly steals and breaks her stand in an effort to keep her from affording gear.

3. Every day when she first opens a man stops by. He makes her uncomfortable and no matter where she sets up, he always fonds her.

4. She’s an assassin who sets up booths in popular towns and gives laced food to her targets, and delicious food to the rest. She possibly mixes up which food is bad.

Badass Clarke is my favourite, but I wouldn’t mind S5 exploring her as not being a leader, we have had 4 seasons of her in charge making these tough choices, I would like to see her reach breaking point and go “Why is everyone asking me? I don’t always know the answer.” Maybe inbetween seasons, the characters experience this period of peace and rest, they are able to live, be humans - it’s a vacation for Clarke she gets to be a young adult again. Then drama happens in S5 and maybe Clarke is tired from it - I think it’d be an interesting concept to explore while also allowing other characters to step up, one of them might have secret leadership skills.

Gay Angry Punk Biracial Irish Farmer and Young Father Ronan Lynch GIVES ME LIFE

I seriously love this kid, and his hoofed dream guide child (I vary on what kind of hooves I picture her with, though it mainly fluctuates between horse hooves and deer hooves) that he is kind of raising with the help of his forest magician boyfriend, so much.

And I have to say that some of my favorite fics are the ones where all of Adam’s college friends know that his boyfriend is a farmer and/or a young father, and expect him to be some kind of white, barely educated, red-necked hick who hates modern technology (because he never answers his phone), with a thicker accent than Adam’s (even if they know that he went to the same prestigious private school as Adam), and then are confronted with Gay Angry Punk Biracial Irish Farmer and Young Father Ronan Lynch, who is most definitely very intelligent and educated (and likes modern technology and just doesn’t like answering his phone), and is just more than content with just running the family and raising his dream kid with Adam’s help.

ABC’s of Shapeshifter Lore

S is for Selkie: Selkies (also spelled silkies, selchies; Irish/Scottish Gaelic: selchidh, Scots: selkie fowk) are mythological creatures found in Scottish, Irish, and Faroese folklore. Similar creatures are described in the Icelandic traditions. The word derives from earlier Scots selich, (from Old English seolh meaning seal). Selkies are said to live as seals in the sea but shed their skin to become human on land. The legend is apparently most common in Orkney and Shetland and is very similar to those of swan maidens.

Male selkies are described as being very handsome in their human form, and having great seductive powers over human women. They typically seek those who are dissatisfied with their life, such as married women waiting for their fishermen husbands. If a woman wishes to make contact with a selkie male, she must shed seven tears into the sea. If a man steals a female selkie’s skin she is in his power and is forced to become his wife. Female selkies are said to make excellent wives, but because their true home is the sea, they will often be seen gazing longingly at the ocean. If she finds her skin she will immediately return to her true home, and sometimes to her selkie husband, in the sea. Sometimes, a selkie maiden is taken as a wife by a human man and she has several children by him. In these stories, it is one of her children who discovers her sealskin (often unwitting of its significance) and she soon returns to the sea. The selkie woman usually avoids seeing her human husband again but is sometimes shown visiting her children and playing with them in the waves.
