proposal: everybody draws their otps in this shitty ass Romantic Pose
im gunna do it
Love hit him like a ton of… snake.
Some time ago Chris bought Tomodachi Life. We proceeded to populate it with all of our book characters.
At one point, Xriah ended up wearing a jogging outfit with the lamest design (arm warmers, booty shorts) and the worst colors (neooonnnn) I could possibly imagine. Of course, I had to draw it.
I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.
Words cannot describe how much I love this post.
I’m an artist and my husband is a scientist and dude, the conversations we have..just..woah.
Both artists an scientists observe, study, and interpret. The most successful of both worlds are the creative ones. I happen to be both an artist and a scientist, and I know I’m not alone :)
I’ve seen a lot of scientists who dismiss art, and artists who dismiss science, as if these two things are opposing and mutually exclusive. In fact, it is exactly the opposite. Art needs science to be grounded in reality and the human psyche, and science needs art to imagine, and to be accessible to the public. Imagine a word without medicine and technology, and imagine a world where everything is black and white text. They need each other.
Science does not take the wonder out of the world. It takes out some of the mystery, and mystery can be a form of love. But the truest, deepest loves are when you have a deep understanding of what you are looking at; when you can appreciate what it is and how it came to be, and love every facet of its existence.

There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?”
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human.
Therapy animals save lives.
These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury.
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!
I was reading an article of a service dog helping a person with schizophrenia. she stated that when she was seeing or hearing things and notices the dog is not reacting in any way, then she is able to ground herself, realizing what she was experiencing was not real and could work through it easier and is more able to ignore the delusions. And she pointed out she feels more comfortable with a service dog as well because well, dogs don’t judge and get angry for things like this
I teared up about this whole post to be honest.
It’s amazing how connected and empathetic dogs and humans have become with each other. It’s an amazing example of mutualism.
service dogs, wheelchairs, handicap parking spaces. Sometimes the reasons for needing these things aren’t obvious.
Be kind, and don’t assume. :)
