Imagine finding a dragon egg one day, and it hatches in your house and thinks you’re its mom. Then the next morning you wake up and find this mini dragon has gathered all the lose change and shiny objects in your house in a pile, and is gnawing on a nickel. And then when you take it out for walks, it picks up every coin it sees cause its a hoarder. And your house is eventually full of coins. And you are rich. And have a dragon.

my favorite tumblr meme is probably the “don’t fuck the thing” “I’M GONNA FUCK THE THING” exchange. i dont know why i love it so much. is it the stern, no-nonsense tone of the original speaker? theunbridled enthusiasm of the second? the fact that its basically never used in a context where fucking “the thing” is actually plausible? same reason i love “shove it up my ass” as an expression of approval for an inanimate object. its the passion, dude. the passion that transcends logic and takes on a sexual fervor that’s sort of confusing to all involved, but makes more sense to all of us on a deeper level than we’ll ever admit out loud. no, most of us don’t wanna shove that pair of boots up our ass. no, we dont really want to fuck that pool of lava. but we might as well.

i dont know, its beautiful.

Concept art for Diluvion!  See more on our tumblr.  : )


Natasha Cousens

Natasha Cousens creates sculptures that can be considered a new form of taxidermy. Instead of the real thing, her pieces are beautifully crafted wooden sculptures of woodland creatures like foxes, deers, and rabbits. These cute forest dwellers are often embellished with decorative elements such as floral wreaths or guised in an unnatural color; making Cousen’s work soft, whimsical and fun.

I’ve answered chimes and posy already.

What do you find most charming in others?
People that don’t feel the need to comment on everything that is said are great, and so are people that will make sure that you’re okay when things you’re not good at dealing with happen.

In what type of environment do you feel most safe?
Small, warm places with lots of squishy places to sit and blankets, and minimal amounts of people and only people that I like.

What kind of item would you most likely buy from an antique store?
Small boxes and tiny shiny things.
