i promise i will stop posting about garbage children in the jaime x brienne tag soon
sometimes i remember how
apparently ppl who ship jaime/brienne are just ugly girls who are projecting bcs they wish a hot guy would pay attention to them
i used to think it was an isolated incident, someone saying that absurdity
they kept on coming back and saying it
so i realized it was actually a thing
multiple humans legitimately believe that entirety of a fanbase for a rather popular ship
are all just ugly girls who have never known the touch of a handsome man
living vicariously thru brienne of tarth
what a world what a world
Joke’s on them: we are living vicariously thru Jaime because daym son it’s Brienne of Tarth who’s the real catch of all this story
Boar is very lean and has more of a red-meat taste than I find pork to. I feel like it’s sort of a taste between pork tenderloin and beef. It’s one of the most delicious animals I’ve ever had, I’m not a pork fan but a love boar. I’ve never had ostrich before though so that one will be an adventure.
I’ve had an ostrich steak last month and it tasted just like, and that I swear, … moose.
…wait I realize this might not have been that helpful, you probably haven’t had moose either.
America is some fucked up dystopian shit honestly like how are y’all even surviving? Paying for healthcare? $60,000 on tuition? POC getting shot in Wal-Marts? White men shooting up elementary schools? That’s terrifying I’m worried about all of you
America doesn’t seem that terribly horrible when you live here day to day and you’ve known nothing else but when somebody says something like this it fucks you up really good.
I am so totally not kidding when I say I’m worried about you guys, and when I’m putting Republicans (which I kinda osmose with all the Tea Partiers, Rightist nuts, White Supremacists, Ultra-religious, Gun nuts, Quiverfullists, anti-abortionists, capitalist fatcats, etc. ) on the same list as earthquakes, huricanes and tornadoes, disasters which I’m afraid might befall you.
i think my main problem w high fantasy elves is that they often take their template from tolkien elves, which are elves designed to compliment/”fit in” with classic english (notions of) forests, while as an aussie my idea of forests are
and i dont know about you guys but they just give me a really different feel as to the types of elves that would live there
#for scrubland!elves i see like#skin in all shades of dusky brown#more hunters and meat eaters than the way traditional elves ping me#theyre long limbed and sharp toothed and they can stand still and silent better than any other#even their motions are sharp and swift unlike the graceful flowing of rainforest!elves#their creator gods are also water gods#rainforest!elves have shining dark skin and they wear leaves twisted into their hair#theyre omnivores but their diet is heavy in fruits#their eyes are large and see far and well in dim lighting#they move constantly graceful and smooth like flowing water#their dead loved ones walk in the stars#of the two encountering scrub elves is more likely to be fatal but rainforest elves settle firmly in the uncanny valley#dae talks#elves yooooo
ok this would be a really cool project to design a bunch of elves for all the different kinds of forests
imagine bony mangrove swamp elves with big webby fingers and toes and short salt-crusted hair, or the elves of the pacific northwest rainforests who are big fat bastards in cedarbark cloaks and bearskins
I feel the OP so much. I’ve also grown up on a diet of books/media that would always have forests of oaks and other huge, leafy trees in which one could climb, or hide behind, and with enough space between trees for unicorns to cavort… And then I’d look around me while at our forest camp and see this:
Conifers, conifers and more conifers (with an occasional white birch to liven things up) as far as the eye can see, and not even pretty ones; mostly ugly black spruces whose branches look dead and needle-less until two-thirds their height. …and with occasional wet areas/swamps/bogs where the trees get even creepier
Good luck hiding a magical Elven city in the treetops of these, heck, good luck just walking in there without getting your long flowing Elven locks snarled in the tangle of sharp, barbed spruce branches everywhere.
I mean, the boreal forest also has great beauty:
But it’s a far cry from what I’ve always seen represented in the books I’d read and the movies I’d watch and the illustrations I’d see…
So when I’d draw my fantasy stories I’d draw oaks and shit even tough I’d never saw one that hadn’t been planted by humans in their backyard or the such… I would mix in a few conifers too, but, yeah…
dragons don’t ever really leave their princesses
(and their princesses never really want them to go)
Synchronicity is the best. I haven’t heard of Repo! outside my own song playlist since possibly years and just earlier I read an article about kidney transplants, with people in the comment section exchanging Geneco/Zydrate references.Then 10 mins later this pops on my dash. :)
The “first man-made biological leaf” could enable humans to colonise space
RCA graduate Julian Melchiorri says the synthetic biological leaf he developed, which absorbs water and carbon dioxide to produce oxygen just like a plant, could enable long-distance space travel.
