Excellent advice for future fuzzy tarantula owners.
nah. they’re what makes me hesitant to order pho. i’m afraid i’m just not a bean sprouts person
petition to just call them after the seven dwarves
bold of you to assume they AREN’T named after the seven dwarves
That’s not weird! As far as I know, it doesn’t! You could always just refer to it by the scientific name, Lymantria dispar dispar, or abbreviated L.d. dispar.
gỏi cuốn! local names vary considerably. spring roll, summer roll, cold roll, etc. I get/make the tofu version.
yeah, I just hope it managed to struggle out later :(
I meant TMA characters unfortunately 😔 I’ve never seen a Star Wars
It’s an interesting question. Looking back we do have examples of Avatars that have neglected their duty and the answer seems to be that they get consumed. When Breekon is Known he fades from reality. When Daisy is buried her mind clears, but we learn that she’s been struggling the entire time and suffering from the hunt physically as well as mentally. Michael is consumed by its own door and replaced for being ‘distracted.’ Agnes declares she’s compromised for feeling love and sacrifices herself for it.
Melanie was more an avatar in waiting. She was at the tipping point, but by removing the bullet it at least seems that her transformation was cut short (As far as we know).
But now we have information from the newest episode that there’s a chance for those under Beholding to cut themselves off from the entity. I believe this is what Gertrude did and that is why Elias was able to shoot and kill her, she was no longer Archivist or at least was no longer invulnerable.
If this theory is right and Gertrude did manage to cut herself off from Beholding before her death it would mean Jon could potentially do it too.
The thing about all the avatars is that it’s not so much the entity changes everything about them. Jon needs to know, even if it’s terrible knowledge, even if the knowledge will make it worse and not help in anyway. He’s always been like that since he was a child following the bully and watching him get pulled into the house by spider legs. Melanie was angry, the slaughter utilized that anger and made her murderously angry. Its why section 31 cops seem to easily become hunters. They hunt monsters and if they do it long enough its ingrained.
So I think it might be very difficult for a Full Avatar to actually step away once they’ve been embraced because the entity is using their natural traits against them. So I don’t know if they could actually lose their powers. They might retain them just because it might be as much a part of them as anything else and when they use their powers it feeds the entity so the entity wants them to use them. The only sort of exception is Michael but in Michael’s place the Distortion itself wasn’t consumed, just… switched out personalities.
Also our perspective is mostly through statements so our view might be skewed and it actually might be something more common than we think. Beholding has been obscuring hope of escape from Jon actively.
Tl;dr: When Avatars don’t fulfill their duties they seem to get consumed, although we might learn that there is a way for Jon to break free since Beholding has been a bit… withholding.
mORE FUEL FOR THE CEASELESS WATCHER

Feta and Halloumi
feta: absolutely divine. crumbly white goat & sheep curd in brine…the jewel of the mediterranean. buy it in bulk, put it on everything.
halloumi: apparently this is one of the cheeses that can be used for flaming saganaki, so although I do not know it well I already adore it.

I know it’s not the main point of this point and I hate to nitpick but doves are also a symbol of peace in Judaism
Oh! I’m sorry, I did not know that! I will keep it in mind. Thank you for telling me. Should I change the post?
Edit: changed the post
“In the heat of the day / When I close my eyes / When I look your way / When I meet the fear / that lies inside / When I hear you say / In the heat of the moment / Say, say, say / Some day, some day” okay this LITERALLY ruined my day.
also. fkcing. also. “would you carry the torch for me?”
Elicia deleted her blog because of the volume of hate she was getting. I’m afraid she no longer on tumblr.
As much as some people like to roll their eyes about Beat Generation writers, I think that reading so much of them at a point in my early 20s influenced my dialogue style, because a lot of it is very naturalistic. But probably reading plays has helped develop my dialogue writing the most. And it doesn’t really matter what playwrights you read, it’s all about being faced with almost nothing but dialogue and having to interpret a story from it.
But still the biggest influence was probably LM Montgomery in terms of learning about writing setting, and making romance from the mundane.
And I just realized how much LM would probably love Rey and Finn and now i’m emotional.
I mean, that sounds like the kind of shit she’d definitely not complain about if Serena wasn’t black tbh
theres a good chance yeah
theres also a good chance that shed complain like this anyway bc who knows how her mind works
that being said there definitely is weird racist shit at play but yeah shes just a bad person all around
??? is it just misogynoir or
literally have no idea she thinks she’s whiny and basically a kardashian level celeb and im just like hmmmm someone whiny who doesnt contribute?? sounds nothing like serena and everything like you mother
tried saying like “outfit was a medical thing” when the story came on and she’s like “that’s not an excuse there’s a uniform you have to follow” and im like “it’s a medical device. if a kid got sent home for dress code for wearing a brace would that be okay?” “it’s not the same” i guess it’s not since blood clots can be fatal but i dont think thats what she meant
