sketches of younger!tenzin?? im trying to kind of differentiate him from drawing aang….somehow…

also ive been thinking: aang probably never had to rly stress abt propagating the single existing airbender line bc he’d been dating katara since they were basically preteens but for poor tenzin puberty must’ve been literal hell LMAO….

how bout some assorted lins looking to the left

I was trying to think of why she wouldn’t be in the trailer today and like maybe it’s spoiler related??  What if she retires for real and moves to zaofu….. I really hope she doesn’t I want her to be an old ass chief of police in Republic City but there would be some consolation in that the new armor looks rad as hell (I mean her regular armor is great but dammit I love pauldrons also those gloves with the white palms omg).  And different hair cos erryone got different hair

Rest are from random sketch files over the past few weeks.  Dude I can totally see Lin being super well behaved disciplined kid despite Toph not enforcing anything, but the one area she would take advantage is just eating whatever she wanted so chub babby lin 

Also love how different Lin and Su’s earthbending styles are.  Su is like Ty Lee if she was an earthbender and Lin is just like as graceful as someone shotputting a cinderblock.

"Last Week Tonight" examines the bizarre relationship between some conservatives and Ayn Rand.

Since these guys have gotten so much attention this month, here’s Ghost playing with snow to remind you what dorks they really are. (After attempting to walk while holding those two clumps, he soon realized ice doesn’t make for good shoes and ended up flopping off the barrel and into the snow pile. Well done, eagle.)

Vultures Have No Concept of Personal Space: A Story in Six Photographs

(Having been constantly whacked in the head by turkey vulture wings, I can only imagine what it’s like with a condor!)

Shes holding its beak shut so it won’t snap at her or anyone else, the bird is simply trying to make her let go to bite off someones finger though they are docile sometimes

No.

As you can see here, not only is her hand open, but there’s meat all over it. He was sticking his beak in her hand to reach the meat. But even if there was not meat, I know from working with a vulture that sometimes they just stick their beak in your hand for no apparent reason. It’s not unusual behavior for them.

He was not being restrained, as you can see here:

Vultures can be very aggressive indeed, but typically only with those who encroach on their space (not including their trainers, who they bond with and then get all up in their space). 

And I’ve never known a trainer who would restrain a bird by just holding onto their beak. That could result in serious injury for the bird. 

Also, in my experience, many vultures actually enjoy having their beaks gently tugged on! We use it as a reward for good behavior on ours. If you stick your hand up in a cupped shape, they know what’s coming and will shove their beak right into it for some good ol’ beak-tugs! And sometimes if you don’t cup your hand enough, they’ll nip at your knuckles, like they’re saying “hey, make a shape that I can stick my beak in already!”

Among harpy flocks, those who naturally have missing feathers have a greater tendency towards magical aptitude than any others. Truly bald harpies often become the matriarch figures within the colonies they reside in, and are the closet things harpies have to any form of leadership.

Those who still grow ragged, yet useless, quills often break the developing blood feathers to augment the strength of their spells with more visceral reagents than discarded bones and chattering, shrilly chanted words- Attendants will pluck the broken quills free from their charges before they succumb to bloodloss, but the practice still carries great risk (albeit for potentially even greater reward).

Do you want to experience bird dating in Hatoful Boyfriend but don’t know where to get the game? 

You can purchase the Steam remake version here for $10 or purchase the Collector’s Edition for $15 which includes a digital copy of the OST, the original game, exclusive 10-paged manga and the St. Pigeonation’s yearbook!

or you can purchase the original game for $4! (though, the original does not support all Macs)

And if you adored Hatoful Boyfriend and want to see more, you can play the indirect sequel called Hatoful Boyfriend Holiday Star! And by indirect I mean that the game takes place in an alternate universe from the first game!

Lots of the money or even every cent goes towards Hato Moa, the main creator of the series, whom owns many birds of her own and even a fantail pigeon named Okosan! All of you support helps her keep her feathery friends well fed and preened so don’t make finding a free version for both games your first resort!

To get the most out of the first game, make sure to do all the routes and an extensive mode called ‘Bad Boys Love’ (aka BBL) gets unlocked and in it reveals the many secret and truths leading up to how society of the game became as it is in the first place (among other things).
