They Call Us Children, and They Treat Us Like Mice

ssalamandar asked: "ur username is soo dumb o god"


Not sure if sarcastic or not. Just in case though, its not supposed to be “salamander”, it is supposed to be “Salaam, Ender” which is a quote from my favorite book. The fact that it sounds like “salamander” when smushed together is bonus since “salamander” is also something important from the book

I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.

Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc).

Handy, basic visual reference tool.

Then it becomes The Great War, inter-war, The War, The Cold War, the “holy shit not that much war this decade”, and The War on Terror.





Ready, Set, Aim - Kristoff
One of three archery/Kristoff pieces, this one being the only one where he is fully clothed… *eyebrow wiggle*. the hooded part of it was HEAVILY inspired by assassin’s creed, I must admit.
This was done during my first successful livestream, yaaaayy~

This is the focused and unfocused versions.

i see the AC inspiration but it also really reminds me of skyrim and that makes me giddy



Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.

banestar asked: "Hey!! Saw your post about the super volcano! In case you are not informed, the last book in the Ashfall trilogy came out last week (It is fantabulous, just so you know)"

I’m afraid I have no idea what the Ashfall trilogy is, though I remember someone messaged me about a couple of months ago. I’m going to guess something about the volcano is in those books. Maybe I should take a look!
