I noticed that the author's first name had changed for the second book. Turns out he transitioned while writing the series! Proud to support other trans artists. :heart_trans:

Letters for Lucardo is an adult comic about a vampire lord who loves an older man. Sexy and sweet and omg I can't wait for the third book!

Elke Mackenzie (1911-1990) was a botanist who spent several years in Antarctica studying lichens. While there, she discovered several new species. The most interesting one was probably Verrucaria serpuloides, the only known marine lichen.

In 1971, aged 60, she came out as trans. She spent the end of her career translating botanical texts, before retiring to an A-frame house in Costa Rica which she built herself.

PSA, please boost! If you take testosterone as a shot, one thing you need to watch out for is the vial "crystalizing". I was warned about this, but had no idea what it looked like until my vial was quite advanced. I've attached photos so others know what the crystals look like. The crystals will dissolve if you gently warm it up by putting it in your pocket for 5-10 minutes. If they don't, it's time to get a new vial.

LGBT, Black, Brown, Disabled millionaires is not 'representation.' I want formerly houseless LGBT, I want Black nurses and bus drivers, I want someone from the Disabled community who's actually had to navigate our horrific healthcare system and lack of disability services. I don't need to see the small handful of folks who beat these astronomic odds. I need ppl who know the odds should not be so overwhelming in the first place.

I wonder if actors are secretly proud when a scene the did gets turned into a reaction gif? Imagine texting with a friend and them using a reaction gif of your own face.

A possibly related phenomenon is called crown shyness – certain species of trees will very politely avoid overshadowing each other in a forest canopy, leaving gaps between each others' branches.

Mostly trees of the same species will do this, but different species of tree have been observed doing this too.

Again, no one's entirely sure how the trees do this, and some botanists are probably arguing about it somewhere right now.

It’s weird that adults think cops are normal people when the first thing a kid does if you give him a police costume is start hitting someone who’s done nothing wrong and then deny it despite visual evidence

I went out to the local park to take some photos of all the snow around lake Washington! Along the little walkway to the dock, some kids had left messages for us in the snow!! :D :D

I'm sorry about adding more meta to this already meta heavy day.

Let me add more fluffy snowy cute doggo stuff! They are all pictures of my cute lift brown doggo in her woolen sweater in the snow.
