Day 24 and Day 25 of my Poisonous Flower Fairies (…and etc) are Vetch and Webcap Mushroom! Folks of a certain age may note that Lala Orange was my fave Color Kid.
Day 6 is another mushroom, and actually another amanita, the Destroying Angel. Definitely a life-wrecking drama queen.
Day 5 Poisonous flower fairy is Castor Bean! This is what ricin is derived from x…x and also castor oil. Not a bean to eat. The cutie here is mostly trouble, too!
As the sound of Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee fills the air, the mansion is assailed by spring-fueled flower fairies. Giant swarms flow down the halls, decorating everything, and everyone, with flowers. None are spared, and the swarm is seemingly endless. After 10 minutes, they eventually relent, leaving in their wake millions of flowers and hundred of thousands in property damage.
Well, now this is not what you were asking for, at all! Doing it once was fine, but infecting the Mansion like this?! It destroyed the balance and harmony the few flowers from before managed to create.
“Here goes the joy!…” Now you will have to ask Miyuki or Meiling to take care of this…
What I‘m reading/listening to!
i got so fed up at the side mission ‘invading terrors’ which is a mipha solo where you have to defeat like 17 guardians of varying levels in like 10 minutes or less or something and i just kept failing it (but it was mandatory to revive terrako)…
so i decided to grind her way too much and cook the most op meals out of rage, thinking this time it’d be too easy, but it still wasn’t enough…
so then i literally maxed her out and made an insanely powerful trident for her and cooked the most powerful meals in the game…
and even then, i beat that mission with only 15 seconds to spare…
so now i just have a ludicrously op mipha?? just hanging out? i just needed her to be stronger for that one mission but now she’s too strong…
she’s not even inherently a great character. she doesn’t have any ridiculously powerful and quick and easy to pull off moves. there’s no instant win button like with some characters (*cough cough* impa *cough cough*) good job, mipha. hard work and dedication gets it done.
something about traditional like. spooky ghosts scare me so bad
“The note of the fairy utterance always is, ‘You may live in a palace of gold and sapphire, if you do not say the word “cow”’; or ‘You may live happily with the King’s daughter, if you do not show her an onion.’ The vision hangs upon a veto. All the dizzy and colossal things conceded depend upon one small thing withheld. All the wild and whirling things that are let loose depend upon one thing that is forbidden.…the true citizen of fairyland is obeying something that he does not understand at all. In the fairy tale an incomprehensible happiness rests upon an incomprehensible condition…. Remember, however, that to be breakable is not the same as to be perishable. Strike a glass, and it will not endure an instant; simply do not strike it, and it will endure a thousand years. Such, it seemed, was the joy of man, either in elfland or on earth; the happiness depended on not doing something which you could at any moment do and which, very often, it was not obvious why you should not do. Now, the point here is that to me this did not seem unjust….it seemed to me that existence was itself so very eccentric a legacy that I could not complain of not understanding the limitations of the vision when I did not understand the vision they limited. The frame was no stranger than the picture. The veto might well be as wild as the vision; it might be as startling as the sun, as elusive as the waters, as fantastic and terrible as the towering trees. ”

“Nice toss, Goli!”
I really appreciated the main plot of Marauders 17, it was great to see Storm get some time in the spot-light.
The whole “fight” and relationship between Callisto and Storm was beautiful, I really loved how it all went down.
Love it. Also LOL at everyone hating the Fenris Twins. I guess Duggan hasn’t forgotten about them after all.
I’d really like to know why Callisto is still shown with her eye-patch after her resurrection, though. I know they don’t want to change the character’s iconic look, but shouldn’t that be “fixed”? Unless the missing eye is something that she was born with.
Also appreciated this bit:
This is VERY interesting, and suggests that, while maybe complicit in some of Sebastian’s dirty dealings, Shinobi didn’t know about his father’s involvement in Kate’s murder. (Maybe he didn’t even know that his ship was attacked as a lure, which would mean Sebastian put him in danger as bait.) I like a more sympathetic take on Shinobi, who is an interesting character and could always use more development.
Emma can’t stop twisting that knife into Sebastian, can she?
I’d feel differently if Sebastian had been presented as more of a genuine threat, but he’s been such an incompetent strawman that Emma has easily bested throughout this series, and he’s so beaten down at this point, it really needs to stop. Like this scene doesn’t really make me think “Yes, Queen!” for Emma, because it’s like she’s kicking an injured dog. Also, as far as I know, Harry Leland was less of a “rival” and more of an old friend to Sebastian.
Also, it has been……
The next issue had better be NOTHING but Iceman and Pyro having an adventure and getting some real significant character development
and possibly fucking and maybe Bishop also getting to do something. No little sidebars with Emma picking out outfits or planning the gala, she has already had PLENTY OF TIME IN THE SPOTLIGHT, PLEASE PAY SOME ATTENTION TO THE REST OF YOUR MAIN CAST FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DUGGAN!!!
At this point Callisto and Jumbo Carnation have had more development than Iceman and Pyro, which wouldn’t be a bad thing (I love the development we’ve had for Callisto in particular) except that Iceman and Pyro are supposed to be part of the team and “main cast members.” I really think that the cast for this book was chosen largely by editors, because Duggan has made it quite clear who he prefers to write, and who he doesn’t give a shit about.
Sorry if I sound bitter, Emma fans, I don’t actually hate her. She’s a great character, she’s just…..taken up way too much of this book, while consistently winning in an over-the-top way that’s not even fun to watch at this point. You are all free to disagree, of course.
Overall, I actually liked the issue because of the Storm and Callisto plot, which was great. And I’m glad that Duggan is picking up earlier plot threads like Shinobi and Christian, and the Fenris Twins (still waiting for them to get that ass-kicking……). If he could just stop treating half the cast like cardboard cut-outs this could be really enjoyable.
I think if supernatural did an episode in North Carolina it should have been another x-files ripoff about the brown mountain lights. But also there IS so much untapped pirate ghost potential like with THEE blackbeard and if any shitty tv show should’ve done that for 15 year old seelie fanservice it’s spn
a representation of us @ siya minutes ago
is too faced controversial because i use a peach lip balm from them every night and i legit cant sleep without it now buti honestly dont care about the brand i just like theway the balm is and how it puts me to peachy dramland rest so thats my spectrum thing i guess

indie original character. inspired by mythology & fairytales.
written and created by richard, est. 2016, rebooted 2021.
do you like wolves? do you like original lore? do you like giant monsters that are surprisingly sweet?
if you said yes to any of these, may i interest you in fenrir? he’s a wolfshifter oc i created back in 2016 with original lore and inspiration from fairy tales & mythology. he’s a giant being supposed to create chaos and destruction but instead he’s honestly just a grumpy overgrown puppy, at least most of the time. so yeah— if you’re interested in giant wolves able to turn into a humanoid shape kindly consider LIKING or REBLOGGING this! thank you! - richard.
