Our brave little trooper. Followup vet appointment in half an hour.
We had an accident today.
I have been gradually introducing our new kitten (officially named Merlin) to Sunny, and things had been going really well. Sunny’s been a bit standoffish but completely not hostile towards the kitten, confining her activities to observation and gently (claws sheathed) swatting him when he crosses a line. She doesn’t even hiss at him anymore. Today, however, the kitten was playing on an armchair that Sunny tried to leap up on. I honestly think they were both equally startled; long story short, the kitten hissed and bit her and she scratched him. By extreme misfortune, one of her claws punctured his right eye.
Merlin is in surgery right now. They’re trying to save the eye, but due to the fact that he is so little (only nine weeks old!) the vet has been honest that the chances are slim. Whether or not they are successful, the most important thing is to make sure it doesn’t get infected. Either way, we’re looking at vet bills around $1000. In a pinch we can cover it, but my employment has dried up and I’m still looking for new work. I know some of you contributed to Sunny’s recovery, but if you have anything to spare for my kitten, I will be endlessly grateful. I will make you cookies or a cross-stitch thing or knit you a hat or do SOMETHING. He’s just a baby still. :(
Aziraphale had tried to explain it to him once. The whole point, he’d said - this was somewhere around 1020, when they’d first reached their little Arrangement - the whole point was that when a human was good or bad it was because they wanted to be. Whereas people like Crowley and, of course, himself, were set in their ways right from the start. People couldn’t become truly holy, he said, unless they also had the opportunity to be definitively wicked.
Crowley had thought about this for some time and, around 1203, had said, Hang on, that only works, right, it you start everyone off equal, okay? You can’t start someone off in a muddy shack in the middle of a war zone and expect them to do as well as someone born in a castle.
Ah, Aziraphale had said, that’s the good bit. The lower you start, the more opportunities you have.
Crowley had said, That’s lunatic.
No, said Aziraphale, it’s ineffable.
Aziraphale. The Enemy, of course. But an enemy for six thousand years now, which made him sort of a friend.

Please may I have the thing?
The only problem? Ultron lacks the human touch, and his superior intellect quickly determines that life on Earth would go a lot smoother if he just got rid of Public Enemy No. 1: Human beings.

… . really? Really must we? Really Joss you’re asking me to think that Tony Stark has never read I, Robot or any of its imitators and would actually do something this fucking stupid?
This really does not give me huge hope for this movie.(via last-snowfall)
…..you’re fucking kidding. No, no, no, no, NO. Bad Joss, no cookies. Did you even READ the fucking storyline? I…just….NO. I was worried enough about how this would play out without Hank Pym (Ultron’s actual creator) and THIS is what they go with??? Jesus.
my hair and i have a very complicated relationship </3
The littlest kitten-bro came home yesterday. He is seriously adorable, and so cuddly and loving. He hardly ever stops purring. Sunny has been introduced to him and she is very unimpressed but overall pretty calm about the whole thing. She is mostly just ignoring him right now.
We are not naming him Smaug. It does not suit a kitten this fluffy and affectionate. We’re having a bit of a tough time deciding what TO name him, though. Current frontrunners are Tybalt (which seems a bit cliche), Asriel/Azrael, and Merlin. I wanted to name him Meriadoc but Alan doesn’t like it. :P
So, dear Tumblr folks, I invite you to weigh in. What should we name this little scrap? Feel free to suggest things not on the list. In fact, I welcome it.
it’s 2014 why do boys still think girls like the smell of axe
idk bout u but i love the smell of an axe in my hands. smells like wood polish and cold iron. smells like power and fear.
And then I can use it on the twerps who think that body-spray should be used for anything other than … actually, it shouldn’t be used for anything. Ever.
Erm….my boy wears Axe, actually. And I think he smells quite nice.
