    “Jesus christ eat the goddamn mac and cheese.” scowls the hero “I can hear your stomach growling through your armor, you know.”

    The villain blinks “You-”

    “Are feeding you, yes. If all I wanted to do was punch people and throw criminals in jail, I would’ve become a vigilante. Heroism involves kindness, dipshit.”


    “Heroism involves kindness, dipshit” is the most amazing phrase I’ve ever read. I need to incorporate it into all my work.


    so... it’s been a couple years, i think? tumblr’s new “family friendly” policy won’t let me view MY OWN BLOG PAGE (must’ve been all that sebaciel smut), my icon doesn’t work anymore (DEFINITELY must’ve been the sebaciel smut), and my “flagged posts” section was hilarious - two reblogs of Kuro manga panels, a reblog of someone’s totally innocent nail art, and one actual porn thumbnail i posted because the woman in it was making the stupidest face ever and the only skin showing was a butt.

    in other words, tumblr is an even bigger mess than it was before and i’m not impressed.

    also, my inbox was full of people telling me Tindeck is down and my podfics are AWOL, so i dug through the Wayback Machine until i found my profile. here it is, for everyone who’s still looking for my voice work: https://web.archive.org/web/20160331031156/http://tindeck.com/users/2oulle22-lover (i’ll leave it as a URL so it’s accessible by copypasta as well.)

    my butler and i are still happily contracted, we still ship sebaciel, and we hope to finish our WIPs.... uh.... someday? soon? whenever my health stops being an actual nightmare and i can write again, i guess. but hey! i actually got my old laptop to work AND i logged in! there is hope!

    but for now, i’m going back to bed.

    g’night, shippers. i love you.


    Hey there! Do you have any spanking things on your tumblr? I can't find them in the search box.

    my search box quit working after tumblr changed the tagging system - try putting "/tagged/spanking" (without quotes) in the address bar after my url and see if that works.


    haven't been on here in forever, and probably won't be unless i have a fic update to post. my laptop is pretty iffy these days, which makes writing very difficult, and the fact that this site is now overrun with hate-spewing trolls doesn't really make me want to hang around much anyway. my stuff on AO3 is still there, and yes, i still ship Sebaciel, so if you're subscribing to my AO3 feed, you'll know when i post something. i do however occasionally post Assassin's Creed fic (there's only one so far, but more are planned), so it won't ALL be Kuro stuff. much love to everyone from both of us at Smut and Popcorn, and we hope you're all doing well.

    Rat Empathy

    Upworthy carried a story summarizing an experiment demonstrating that rats exhibit empathy. Why do I care about this? Because the graphics showing the experiment on Upworthy made me smile, and smiling is good. Here’s the link in case you want to watch the video embedded in the story.

    Some scientists ran an experiment to demonstrate that. Here’s how it worked:

    • The scientists put a rat in water (which rats hate). Not enough to hurt the rat, but enough to annoy it.
    • Then they put another rat in a safer, dry area with a door it could open to save the first rat.

    When the dry rat heard the damp, miserable rat get upset, she came to the rescue.

    Still not satisfied with the result, the scientists ran a more complex test.

    What if you bribe the dry rat with food? Will she ignore it to rescue the wet rat in the next chamber?

    Scientists presumed it would be easier for the not-in-peril rat to take the obvious selfless route when it was given only one choice. But what if they gave her a delicious bribe (chocolate cereal) and then let her choose between saving her friend and a buffet?

    The rats, by a significant margin, still usually saved their friend before getting their delicious bribe. What does that mean?

    Rats might care more about each other than things like food, and that prioritization might be encoded in their DNA.

    Why should we care about super-thoughtful rats?

    It is often argued that humans are inherently selfish — that without guidance, we would all default to killing and stealing and an “every person for themselves” mentality. That we only help others if it helps us. That evolution can’t make us selfless; it’s something we have to force ourselves to do.

    But if rats show human-like qualities (they laugh like us, they dream like us, they like to have selfless lovers) like altruism, that means it isn’t a human-learned behavior. It could be encoded in our DNA. It means humans could be empathetic and kind by default.

    It also means that rats and humans have more in common than we think.

    An adorable rat not spreading the plague and hugging a tiny teddy bear. Much empathy.

    My first reaction was ‘Nice thought but there’s no way, Coulson is much younger than…’ and then I stopped mid-thought.

    Because you know what.

    You know what.

    After Steve, the US government had to keep trying to recreate the Super-Soldier Serum.

    And who

    and who

    would be the FIRST DAMN PERSON IN LINE to volunteer?

    They told us it never worked again.  And that was kind of true.  They never again recreated the super-strength or the gleaming pecs.  But other things, they got right.  They got the vastly delayed aging.  And the kind of reflexes that make a man able to take out two armed thugs with a bag of flour.  And the talent for leading through example.  And they got the most important part, Erskine’s favorite part: the magnification of moral fiber, taking the loyalty and selflessness of a loyal and selfless man and making him into something spectacular.

    Coulson didn’t buy those vintage cards on Ebay.

    He’s had them since he was a little boy.

    That little boy right there.


    reblog so fast I think I broke something

    Anon said: as your art has changed since 2 years ago, how much different would you make your adult!karkat look like from the fic Growing Pains that you have made fanart for? uwu (just finished reading it and saw the fan art, loved both of them <3)

    my art didn’t change that much, so I don’t think he’d be much different. I suspect you just wanted me to draw more of talldarksexy!Karkat.


    my favourite thing is probably the scientific name of the Grizzly bear. 

    It’s Ursus arctos horribilis. “ursus” meaning bear in Latin and “arctos”, bear in Greek.

    so essentially a grizzly is a “horrible bear bear.” 


    The Eurasian Brown Bear is Ursus arctos arctos

    So literally “Bear Bear Bear”. The most bear a bear can be. 


    So bear. Much roar. Wow.


    Also! The Arctic Circle is named for the bears, not the other way ‘round. It’s the Circle With Bears In, and the Antarctic is the Circle (and continent) Away From Bears.


    Are you telling us that the poles of our world are Bear Continent and Anti-Bear Continent
