I’m watching a livestream of two fish playing Street Fighter and it’s surprisingly entertaining

That is all

mothergrotesquerie:

here’s a cute thought: at the end of frozen, the first hug that elsa and anna share happens before elsa realises that it’s even possible for her to control her magic

she’s so overwhelmed with relief and love to see that anna is safe that she forgets the fear of hurting her and goes for a hug right away

talk about no composure, elsa absolutely cannot control her emotions whenever anna is involved

"I’m bored." She stated it matter-of-factly, putting the chalk down on her slate and resting her chin on her hands on the desk, smearing her face with white dust. It stood out particularly strongly against the auburn of her hair.

Alarik looked at the notes he had been making, the open journal; he marked his place on the page with a finger and turned back to Jenny. “Hmm?”

"I said, I’m bored.” She slumped on the stool and let her head fall to the desk with a thump that made him wince.

"Shouldn’t have disobeyed your mother," he said. "Two more hours, and you can go. How about reading a book?" He gestured vaguely towards the shelf on the opposite wall.

"Reading is boring, too," she muttered, but she slid off the stool and stumped to the books piled haphazardly on the shelf.

Leaving her to rummage - surely there would be something there to interest her? - he went back to his notes and his journal. Schoenhaus’ argument that magic was evidence of Lamarckian evolution made for a fascinating read, but his methodology was severely flawed, and Alarik was wondering if he had ready any of Galton’s recent theories on the impact of environment on development beyond heritable properties. If magic developed as an environmental need in one instance, but proved detrimental in the next, surely it should disappear once more, if following Lamarck’s arguments? Whereas Galton’s implied that once developed, environmental influences were difficult to eradicate. Not to mention, it was apparently only heritable in the Tsandskiyi, but continued to be seen even in alternate environments, which surely contradicted Lamarck’s hypothesis? But it was possible that -

"What’s that?" Jenny was almost shouting, pulling him very effectively from his notes once more. "Ew!"

Alarik rubbed his eyes as his mind slowly returned to the lab; he always felt a bit hazy and out of sorts for a few moments, after focusing hard on a particular project or idea. He took a few deep breaths, then put his pen in its holder and went to see what Jenny had found.

She was making quite a face - upper lip curled, eyes wide, brow drawn - and staring down, apparently unable to look away, at the book open on her knees. Alarik put a hand on her shoulder and leaned to see.

"Oh," he said. "It shows you human musculature, and the way blood flows through it."

"The skin’s all peeled off!"

"So you can see. Look." He took her arm at the elbow, bent it gently. "Feel how it flexes? That’s this one." He pointed at the picture.

Jenny looked back at him, her eyes now bright. “And it really looks like that?

"It really does."

"Can I see?"

He considered for a moment. “Not on a person, but perhaps in the kitchens…”

I’m not sure who I should recommend more that you not encourage, me or him.

Probably me.

" ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCES ON DEVELOPMENT??? PUT THE TEXTBOOK DOWN, WE NEED TO TALK, BUDDY."
" OOOOOOHHHHH we can talk about this, more fun than talking about-"
" You’re not getting away from that, you STILL EVENTUALLY need to tell me your feelings about fatherhood and how your dad affected it, but LATER, ok, so magic and prenatal devt. Magic as a teratogen, yes or no?"

He’s busy with Dag - bathtime - but said to tell you that yes, magic is a teratogen. :) Fortunately, there is a very, very small window of opportunity in which it can permanently impact the developing embryo. Earlier, and it appears to destroy it, usually within just a day or two of fertilization. Later - after about four-six weeks - it causes some chromosomal abnormalities, but not throughout the body. It will show up in certain cellular structures, but no powers will be manifest.

…He would also like to point out he shouldn’t know any of this, so shhhh. He definitely hasn’t been delving into my textbooks. I would never allow such an anachronism.

Anonymous SENT: if anyone complains about the queen, anna, elsa, and rapunzel looking alike obviously they haven't seen any barbie movie ever

You made my day, anon!

You’re right but I guess people still won’t believe it as a serious argument because Disney keeps copying their own characters when they’re not the only studio to have similar characters….

(Tbh it does sound fascinating to me but yeah)

I’d really love to do it. :) Maybe when my whole… situation… has stabilized somewhat.

Sounds awesome! You don’t have to do it right away though. Take your time.

this is a follower appreciation post because if you think about it when 1 person follows you it’s not just a number it’s like a whole real person who breathes and eats and hits its pinky toe into furniture i mean it has legs and everything DO YOU REALIZE HOW MUCH OF A BIG DEAL IT IS

…I want to write a whole book just shoving all the late 18th/early 19th-century biological discoveries/hypotheses into theories of magic. As written by Alarik.

(I had to look up publication dates for Francis Galton, and down the history rabbithole I went. Very happily, mind.)
