I'm a 22 year old starving artist-type person, who spends a gratuitous amount of time on the internet. I'm also a classically trained musician, and I play the clarinet, piano, and hammered dulcimer. I like books, anime, video games, and (just recently) Homestuck. My deviantART name is Skyeacreon, and all of my art that I post here is under this tag: my art. Feel free to request a drawing in my ask box!

I just destroyed Brock and Misty with my Ninetails. That was fun.
This animation is absolutely glorious. Just take a moment to appreciate that this was all done by somebody’s hand; that they slaved over this, and this was the result of a human, not a computer. It’s completely perfect.
are we not gonna talk about the fact that the reflection is Ariel and Prince Eric?
wait… but Sleeping Beauty came out in 1959, and The Little Mermaid came out in 1989…. that’s a 30 year foreshadow….
Disney you clever bastards.
This is not a foreshadow. It’s probably the same dance sequence reused. Disney is notorious for reusing animation from earlier work in. There are hundreds of examples of this, and it’s possible that they reused this scene. But not likely. iirc there’s never this wide a shot of Ariel and Eric.
Don’t believe me? If nothing else, you can see that Ariel’s hair bow is missing. Think and LOOK before you to conclusions you guys.
Khan could read me the fucking phone book and I’d listen because goddamn he has such a fine voice
Also: What the bloody fuck was McCoy thinking?? “Oh, I’m going to inject this TRIBBLE with super-steroid-unkillable-regenerative-bring-you-back-to-life blood yeah that’s a good idea what could possibly go wrong”

Why everything you know about wolf packs is wrong
By Lauren Davis
The alpha wolf is a figure that looms large in our imagination. The notion of a supreme pack leader who fought his way to dominance and reigns superior to the other wolves in his pack informs both our fiction and is how many people understand wolf behavior. But the alpha wolf doesn’t exist—at least not in the wild…
Although the notions of “alpha wolf” and “alpha dog” seem thoroughly ingrained in our language, the idea of the alpha comes from Rudolph Schenkel, an animal behaviorist who, in 1947, published the then-groundbreaking paper “Expressions Studies on Wolves.” During the 1930s and 1940s, Schenkel studied captive wolves in Switzerland’s Zoo Basel, attempting to identify a “sociology of the wolf.”
In his research, Schenkel identified two primary wolves in a pack: a male “lead wolf” and a female “bitch.” He described them as “first in the pack group.” He also noted “violent rivalries” between individual members of the packs… Thus, the alpha wolf was born. Throughout his paper, Schenkel also draws frequent parallels between wolves and domestic dogs, often following his conclusions with anecdotes about our household canines. The implication is clear: wolves live in packs in which individual members vie for dominance and dogs, their domestic brethren, must be very similar indeed.
A key problem with Schenkel’s wolf studies is that, while they represented the first close study of wolves, they didn’t involve any study of wolves in the wild… In more recent years, animal behaviorists, including [wildlife biologist L. David] Mech, have spent more and more time studying wolves in the wild, and the behaviors they have observed has been different from those observed by Schenkel and other watchers of zoo-bound wolves. In 1999, Mech’s paper “Alpha Status, Dominance, and Division of Labor in Wolf Packs” was published in the Canadian Journal of Zoology. The paper is considered by many to be a turning point in understanding the structure of wolf packs…
Mech’s studies of wild wolves have found that wolves live in families: two parents along with their younger cubs. Wolves do not have an innate sense of rank; they are not born leaders or born followers. The “alphas” are simply what we would call in any other social group “parents.” The offspring follow the parents as naturally as they would in any other species. No one has “won” a role as leader of the pack; the parents may assert dominance over the offspring by virtue of being the parents. While the captive wolf studies saw unrelated adults living together in captivity, related, rather than unrelated, wolves travel together in the wild. Younger wolves do not overthrow the “alpha” to become the leader of the pack; as wolf pups grow older, they are dispersed from their parents’ packs, pair off with other dispersed wolves, have pups, and thus form packs of their owns.
This doesn’t mean that wolves don’t display social dominance, however… Wolves (and other animals, including humans), display social dominance, it just isn’t always easy to boil dominant behavior down to simple explanations. Dominant behavior and dominance relationships can be highly situational, and can vary greatly from individual to individual even within the same species. It’s not the entire concept of wolves displaying social dominance that was dispelled, just the simple hierarchical pack structure…

After reading this a while back I thought Diamond equipped with a huge shield in an RPG AU was the most perfect thing ever… Then I happened to draw everyone else. Some are based off the same post and some are just random using up most of the role/class in a typical RPG. Also added some pointless weird descriptions to things just for fun. I really wish I could of been more creative on some of them. Hmm.. I forgot headgear on all them.. Ahh.. Haha ..
Totally watching Jurassic Park in 3D tonight~
