Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.
how the hell do you bend and braid a tree
Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together.
Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together.
You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.
As a biologist I can clearly state that plants are fucking weird and you should probably be slightly afraid of them.
On that note! At the university (UBC) located in town, the Agriculture students were told by their teacher that a tree flipped upside down would die. So they took an excavator and flipped the tree upside down. And it’s still growing. But the branches are now the roots, and the roots are now these super gnarly looking branches. Be afraid.
But Vi, how can you mention that and NOT post a picture? D:
One second you’re all like, “yeah but I want my girl to understand sports because that’s sexy” but then a female fan walks by and you’re like, “she can’t be a fan, she’s here for the player’s looks. Name the entire 2004 roster.”
Please add more unwarranted explosions to gifs. It’s my favorite.
I like all of these and would like so much more of them to exist.
I’M SO GLAD FOR THIS POST
This guy is the best
I actually just started tearing up in the middle of the marshall center lol
Chris Pratt recalls a story from early in his career when Jimmy went out of his way to show kindness. [x]
Was she going to slap you because you never in any way made him gay in the actual books, taking zero risks/doing absolutely nothing for gay characters in literature, and only announcing your “authorial intent” afterwards for a cheap shot at looking like an ~ally~
Gay people are just normal people. We are not told about any of the Hogwarts professors love lives, other than Snape, and it would be completely out of character for Dumbledore to walk around telling everyone about his sexuality.
Did you want her to make him dress in glittery platform boots, a crop top, and decorate his office in rainbow flags to make it more obvious for you? Would that be enough of a stereotype to appease you people? Or what? Please tell me. I’d like to know how you think a gay character is supposed to be portrayed.
And did you miss the Grindelwald chapters in the ‘actual books’? Or was that also not obvious enough for you? Did Dumbledore need to whisper “always” wistfully in order for you to connect that he had romantic feelings for Grindelwald? Maybe you are American and need them to gaze longingly into each others eyes with awkward close ups of their fingers almost grazing each other that Hollywood thinks means ‘true love’.
It didn’t fit into his relationship to Harry to ever say “I’m gay”, and so it was not stated explicitly (you might have noticed the book was told from Harry Potter’s perspective).
The point is though, that he is a homosexual, well respected, powerful, and very loved wizard- and his sexuality doesn’t matter because no one else thinks it matters. a.k.a. no one care that he loves men, and that is wonderful.
THANK YOU. That’s what I’ve been trying to tell people all the time.
Is it important to represent different sexualities? Yes.
Should you make them explicitly different from any other people in your story? No.
Don’t pick any fights over String Cheese, boys.
I saw Bucky in the shopping cart, and this thought followed me the whole day.
Someone should probably take my art supplies away
First off NEVER STOP because that’s amazing…and second off, funny you should draw that:
Nat took the opportunity to have a little fun too…
Do you know these moments where you just don’t know what in the fuck is happening because weird situation (or coincidence in this case) and you just stop working for 5 minutes? Yeah.
But anyway, you brought it unto yourselves, so have this!
You’re perfect. I love it.
