There were all kinds of descriptions for most of the Zodiacs, collected from different parts of the world. Apparently, each of them are consistently told in stories to live under the constellation they’re named after. Some of the Zodiacs are complete mysteries, and some of them are said to be missing entirely. No one has ever reported a credible sighting of a Taurus Zodiac, and Scorpio — a terribly secretive cyclops prince — only surfaced a few centuries ago.
white with 4 sets of wings. 8 sets. serious over-birding!!
8 wángias… maybe more
is where the meme came from.
i actually felt like drawing today. like, actually wanting to for no reason. how bout that. i did the meme almost exclusively because i was like SHIT, THE REVERSE OF AGENDER MUST BE PANGENDER!!!!! and i felt vaguely accomplished for subverting the gender binary (thumbs up)
also river with long hair, hell yea
This is basically a perfect explanation of why I love furry culture.
my post has nothing to do with furries or furry culture. i have not participated in the furry fandom with any kind of zeal for several years (because of the rampant problematic shit). ”furry” is a label invented to be used as an identifier for people involved in the fandom. i don’t use the label because i’m not the fandom ergo i’m not a furry.
also god. the headache i get imagining people thinking my persona or my identity has anything to do with furries. my whole face is wrinkling in on itself.
i’m having a really bad day today and i don’t think tomorrow is going to be any better so i wanted to draw something to cheer myself up.
being agender has always boiled down to finding identity in places other than male and female for me, because i could not give a shit less about actual gender. i can’t remember when or why i started looking at pictures of birds (probably because i’ve loved bird-like raptors since i was a wee babby) but it was like some kind epiphany. probably because at the time, there were hardly any people i knew or saw who gave a single crap about birds, so discovering these beautiful, fascinating animals was just like shit. birds, man.
that was around the same time i started looking at pictures of space (i’d also always been interested in astrosciences since i was a tiny child so it was just the coolest thing to sit on nasa’s website for hours clicking through pictures) so like, i just sort of became a space bird-raptor.
so, white is kind of an amalgamation of all the things i found myself in, even if it’s not really obvious or presented in an interesting way in their design. white’s me, and that makes them really important to me.
the moral of the story is that i’m literally a bird.
my friend songbird.png
i watched yogscast’s rythian play bioshock infinite this week. he made booker bearable really. songbird was literally the only character i gave a shit about. it’s my fursona now btw (haha just kidding (except not really))
it’s been a really, really, really, Really. really. long time. since i’ve been inspired by anything, or cared about anything, like, beyond a feeling of superficial obligation, as much as i care about songbird.
i care so much about this screeching heap of leather.
quentin’s been my favorite subeta npc for like, probably the entire five years i’ve had a subeta account. i’ve been waiting for a revamp of their art for several years but i’m tired of waiting so i drew my own version. a whole lot of care went into this drawing tbh.
it took a massive amount of willpower to draw this and it’s taking a lot more for me to continue caring about this sentence
lindsey is also the holder of the achievement for “biggest hair” to terid’s eternal chagrin
since my characters haven’t been drawn in, literally, a year or more (for most of them), they’re getting updated designs. lindsey is, and has been for a while, asexual and aromantic.
already many of them i’m starting to be like… HMMM. THIS STORY COULD DO WITH MORE NON-BINARY CHARACTERS, I THINK.
crosus and micah reacting to their portraits in the next fireflies update. i was going to draw lindsey too since they’re in the update as well, but i coulDN’T GET THEIR FUCKING EXPRESSION RIGHT so after six sketches i gave up. a testament to my lack of practice i guess.
i think it has been literally a year (or more) since i’ve drawn micah. whoa.
The book described the Capricorn Zodiac as being a hellish angel shrouded in white fire, with spiraling horns and a fiery mane. Capricorn lives in the Slate Moutains, which is a barren, lifeless mountain range that always looked to you like monsters’ teeth on the horizon. That’s where you and Forrest are headed.
When you and Forrest were 13, you both discovered a derelict house deep in the woods, close to the edge of the wilderness. By chance, you found a small wooden chest under some of the rotted floorboards, and inside was a book that talked about beings called Zodiacs. The person who wrote the book seemed to have devoted their entire life to finding out whatever they could about the Zodiacs. They managed to close in on a general location for the oldest Zodiac — Capricorn.
