PLEASE WATCH THIS

Then read this and possibly sign this.

My tribe isn’t federally recognized, so we’re basically invisible to the government (you can read about that here). This dam raise is a super huge threat to our culture; stopping it from happening is really important.

IF YOU CAN’T SIGN THE PETITION, PLEASE AT LEAST REBLOG THIS POST. IT WOULD MEAN A LOT TO ME AND MY PEOPLE. LIKE, PLEASE.

This is unforgivable. These people have already had most of their land flooded and stolen from them, and now we want to take more. I know a lot of people are afraid of water shortages in California right now, but this dam will not help. Dams don’t create water, they just store it, and they store it in a way that can actually cause water to be lost due to evaporation. We have no right to take these people’s homes and history and culture. We didn’t have the right in the first place. There is nothing okay about this.

I should just go to sleep I feel broken boop boop

If you are an artist, when you get stuck, draw bigger and on tracing paper when you are stuck. Consider this manual photoshop. Use scissors, trace, refine.

This is potentially life saving information everyone should know.

No you guys this post helped me find my cat. He was missing for almost a month and I’ve had him for over 12 years. After seeing this I put his favorite blanket he always slept on outside hoping he would smell mine or his scent and he was back the next fucking day asleep on it.

When my cat got out, we called and called for him, and then, later that night, I remembered similar advice to this, and so put his little scratching pad, which he adores, on the front porch. Not even half an hour later, I heard a thump, opened the door, and there was his big butt, meowing at me.

Important and vital

All of the schools above have much more extensive lists for you to use! I made this list in little over half an hour, so there is much room to be expanded on. 

NEW ADDITIONS: 

Latin Library at Packard Humanities Institute - http://latin.packhum.org/ (PHI numbers standard way to refer to Latin texts, look at the ones Perseus uses - it’s PHI).

Brepolis - http://www.brepolis.net/ - may need to access this via your institution or its ezproxy (includes the Library of Latin Texts A and B LLT-A and LLT-B and many other interesting resources).

Chapters: 1/?
Fandom: Les Misérables - All Media Types
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Relationships: Enjolras/Grantaire
Characters: Grantaire, Enjolras, Combeferre, Courfeyrac, Montparnasse, Cosette Fauchelevent, Les Amis de l’ABC
Additional Tags: Terrorists, Obsession, Healthy Relationships
Series: Part 6 of stupid terrorist boys
Summary:

“Who else could really deal with him right now? Who else would be able to help him?” Enjolras asks.

“I don’t know, maybe someone with a psychiatric background,” Grantaire bites out, trying to stay calm and failing completely. “We aren’t healthy, Enjolras! We are so, so fucked up. Do you really want to subject a kid to that? Do you think we could even keep him alive? We can barely keep ourselves alive.”

(Or: Grantaire has to somehow be the voice of reason because everyone’s going crazy insisting they keep this kid even though there’s some bullshit conspiracy around him and Enjolras is going ACTUALLY crazy and won’t let Grantaire even try to help and god he’s just so fucking done, he really is.)

I have about 30,000 words written, but these chapters are really fucking long so that honestly only puts me on chapter 3. Which is why I’m planning to do one chapter every week! So, Chapter 2’s on 9/7. This way I can hopefully keep ahead of postage and keep steady updating and then this whole thing can nice and cleanly sorted with no tears on either of our sides, the end.

Also, a nocturlabe is more appropriately called a nocturnal, but that has connotations of, you know, nocturnal, and nocturlabe is ~le french~ so there ya go. TIMETELLING VIA STAR MEASURING!!! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

Medical Examiner In Zimmerman Trial Sues For $100M, Claims Prosecution Threw Case
In a bombshell allegation, Florida medical examiner Dr. Shiping Bao (pictured) claims that Florida state prosecutors were biased against Trayvon Martin and purposely threw the case, and he is suing the state for $100 million, reports WFTV.com.
According to Bao, the medical examiner, state attorney’s office, and Sanford Police Department all felt that Martin “got what he deserved.” Bao also claims that he received the strong, though subtle, message not to speak on certain things:
“He was in essence told to zip his lips. ‘Shut up. Don’t say those things,’” said Bao’s legal counsel, legendary Attorney Willie Gary.
Bao’s allegations come swiftly on the heels of him being fired from his position as associate medical examiner.
Volusia County released a letter on Tuesday, stating that Bao was fired last week. Spokesman Dave Byron declined to give a reason for Bao’s termination, citing “county standard personnel practices,” reports CBS News.

you go medical examiner Bao, you go!

SLOW CLAP FOR THIS HERO OF COLOR PUTTING HIS NECK ON THE LINE TO GET THIS DONE FOR OTHER CHILDREN AND PEOPLE OF COLOR.
