at the end of All Yesterdays (the extremely good book about imagining and illustrating dinosaurs in complex speculative ways i was talking about yesterday) there’s a section where they prove the point about the fact that we need to be more open to imagining skin coverings and fat/cartilage deposits by illustrating modern-day animals as if a nonhuman paleontologist from millions of years in the future reconstructed them using the just-skin-stretched-over-the-skeleton-and-muscles method that unimaginative paleoartists use with dinosaurs

with results like:

and i love it so much because it absolutely unquestionably proves the point the book is making

Je découvre Adult Wednesday Addams beaucoup trop tard mais c’est pas grave, parce que peut-être que vous ne connaissez pas non plus alors hop, c’est cadeau, le premier épisode.

Pour le reste, c’est par là

Il n’y a que six épisodes, et c’est bien dommage, parce que je serais prête à payer pour dix-huit saisons.

During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.

The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.

I believe this spell is called “Fuck You I Am a Goddamn Witch and Don’t Have to Tolerate This Bullshit”. 
Let’s see how well this plays out for the offenders.

oooooooh what’s it do?

I wanna know, too. It’s cool as fuck.

lol, may as well. I’m having some issues stemming from an old friend and their newest romance.  So, I’m intervening. The candles stand for the both of them. Each stone is an issue that’s come between them that they’ve ignored. As my curse burns through each of them, each issue will be brought to the surface and drop to begin building a barrier between them. By the time it’s finished, I don’t expect them to be speaking any more. 

*drools intensely at the magick*

My Mom, after having made the courageous decision to leave my incredibly controlling and abusive stepfather of 18 years, is saying she wants to get back together with him. If you don’t mind, I’ll be using this incredibly beautiful spell of yours.

I am flattered you like this spell enough to use it! And I hope I’m not incredibly late to let you know however that this (as I performed it) is NOT a guaranteed break up spell. If the targets are able to work through their issues as they bubble to the surface and truly care about each other, this spell would theoretically only make their relationship stronger. But that of course is why I love it, it was designed to be a relationship version of The Tower. :)

 What angels are apparently supposed to look like according to
They had 6 wings, covered with eyes on the wings. And had two eyes on their face, but used 2 wings to cover their face at all times because if a mortal ever saw their face they would die.
 The bible mentions multiple faces, being covered in eyeballs, constant singing, lion heads etc.
 Besides being described as beasts and monsters, they’re practically brainless drones. Heavenly angels are only one step removed from demons. The only difference is demons fell from heaven because they chose to follow Lucifer, who was an angel (angel of music and one of god’s favorites). So they are these eyeball covered animal mashed up monsters who were only created to worship for eternity (part of humanities creation was so that something would choose to love god, not just worship him because they were created to).
Angels fall into a lot of new age and conspiracy beliefs.We were taught that the supernatural realms went in the order of Heaven, Hell, then Earth. So when the angels fell from heaven with Lucifer, some fell through hell and landed on Earth. We were taught they intermarried with early humans and created giants and taught witch craft to women.
Technically, angels have made their only moral choice, and so experience morality only in theory.Some angel characters are based on the non-humanoid or vaguely humanoid “canon” angels, which can be anything from a ball of wings covered in eyes to a huge, living wheel to animals on fire.
 They’re abominations, they’re alien, they’re beyond us. They’re creatures that biology as we know it does not apply to. Often they do not love mankind, they love God and God alone.
Maybe angels taking on human form but describing just what they look like when they’re not wearing their skin.
Angels are such creepy and interesting.

The study of angelology is EVEN MORE interesting with a literal and scientific approach to understand what ancients have said regarding angelic deities. It’s a beautiful study

There is a damned good reason why the first thing out of an angel’s mouth whenever it appears to a mortal person in the Bible is “DO NOT FEAR”, and it’s because angels are fucking terrifying.

Different orders looked different. Seraphim, in Judaic canon, were second to God Himself, had six wings covered in eyes, and four wings covered their bodies which were so alien and glorious, they would set a mortal soul ablaze should one gaze upon it. Others, like Cherubim, were concentric circles covered in eyes and connected at the wing-tips. There are Thrones, Principalities and Dominions, too. Angels and Archangels are actually the lowest orders, however Christian canon has the Archangels as top dogs.
