i want there to be a star trek themed cafe where you go to get like a mccoffee or a james tea kirk or a spockiatto 

a hot spockolate and a chekov chip cookie…



so like literally starbucks

just have a cylontte or a galacteaca or something (CHOCOLATE BATTLECHIP GALATTECA?) and it’d be a starbuck's.







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:

I may not be going to fanexpo but my weekend is packed full of exciting things and I’m excited to do all the exciting things.

The absence of women in history is man made.


Watching Hannibal is like watching everyone in the show drive their own car that’s going 10 mph, so they have plenty of time to avoid collision and turn away, but instead they all end up running into each other and it’s a huge pile up and no one knows who to blame for this huge car crash and Hannibal is sitting on the sidewalk in a lawn chair drinking red wine and smirking to himself.


Tiny Griffin! The first in a mini series of mini mythological creatures.



Recently (last night) I reread the entirety of In Science We Magic as it’s available on this here tumblr. This morning I then looked at the project file and counted twenty finished, partly finished, and bare bones vignettes yet to make their way to the light of day. Thusly, I have an announcement to make.

In Science We Magic will be updating every Thursday for the next twenty weeks.

What I’m going to do is basic editing to fill in notation. Unless the fancy strikes me, I won’t be flushing out entire pieces from the more bare bones ones. You’ll get full posts, strictly dialogue and a couple of one-liners. I won’t be writing anything new, the serial as it currently is (a dropped WIP) will be completely online.

I will continue to update The Hellborne Universe, in the meantime, but not on a weekly basis. So whether or not The Hellborne Universe gets an update, there’ll at least be ISWM to read for the next twenty weeks. I do have plenty of Hellborne Universe to post, don’t worry.

I’m not sure if this counts as filler or an apology for those people reading ISWM when it stopped updating. I do want to have all of In Science We Magic up, now that it’s been about a year and looking back I see all the work I put into it and how entirely amusing the whole thing is to read.

Sometimes I miss science fiction.




Roger Rabbits special effects still fucking hold up by todays standards AND looks better than most films that come out NOW it was that ahead of its time

I’m still amazed that Hoskins had that little to work with. Everything about this video is awesome.

This made my day.


"guess we cant have different opinions on tumblr"

nah son. an opinion is like “orange juice is nasty” or “fall out boy is overrated”

"your gender identity is ridiculous and you dont deserve to have it respected" is straight up bullshit and you should be called out on it


Here are the few blog posts I’ve made that are not aimed at people who are already educated about asexuality, aromanticism and trans issues. I’m putting them all together for convenience. Use these links to either A) educate yourselves or B) educate others.

Glossary of asexuality/aromanticism-related words

Glossary of trans/non-binary/genderqueer-related words

All about how non-binary pronouns work

What to do when someone tells you they’re asexual

How to write asexual characters

Don’t be a jerk about gray-asexual and demisexual identities, okay?

Aromanticism 101

How to be a better ally to aromantic people

(I haven’t made an “asexuality 101” post because you can already find that by googling it.)

And if the person you’re trying to educate just won’t listen you can always play bingo instead.
