Drops of Jupiter

I'm a 29 year old British woman who works as a Bibliographic Data Assistant. I'm also an aspiring author.

Expect to find a lot of fandom-related things here (mainly anime/manga for now) and whatever else catches my interest.

If you want to talk to me about anything (within reason - no personal questions please!), then the best thing to do is to send me an ask message. I'm not on Tumblr much during the week because I work full-time, but I'll try to respond ASAP.

Legend of Korra Book 4 trailer

A few SPOILER-y comments:

  • I love Korra’s new haircut. It reminds me of San from Mononoke-Hime (I wouldn’t be surprised if San or Nausicaa inspired her new look).
  • Three years have passed since season 3. That explains why she’s back on her feet again. It looks as though we will get to see a least a little of what happened during the intervening period.
  • The Earth Kingdom don’t look too happy. There’s possibly a major war on the horizon.
  • Kuvira (metal bender soldier lady) looks to be playing a major role this season. There’s some speculation that she’ll be this season’s main villain… we’ll see. I’d definitely be okay with the main antagonist being female, considering that the three previous ones have all been men.
  • Toph? Granny!Toph would definitely be interesting to see. Also, did I spot Katara there? It really bugs me how much she’s been shunted to the sidelines in LoK (I know she’s really old but a) so’s Zuko and b) it’s very unlike her to not want to get involved in the action) so I’d definitely be up for her playing a bigger role this season. Just don’t kill her off yet, Bryke. You heard Aunt Wu.

Darren Hunt of Utah

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

I cannot tell you how important this is. He was a gentle person. A lot of people think he was cosplaying Mugen from Samurai Champloo. The shooting happened the Wednesday after the Salt Lake Comic Con. NO ONE in Utah is talking about this, and it needs to be a HUGE deal. Eyewitnesses say that Darrien was relaxed, with his hands down at his sides. When trouble started, he ran away from police. He was shot from behind SIX TIMES.

As far as I know, police are refusing to release any details about what happened. When asked, they said you can’t trust anything you hear in the media because the media only care about ratings and sensationalism.

Spread this like wild fire.

Our new kitty is here! Her name is Cookie, and she has FIV.

Our Cookie plush is maintenance free and helps support less-adoptable kitties like her in real life! Half of your plush purchase will be donated to a cat shelter or rescue group that takes care of homeless pets.

Please read more about FIV!

Hi! I’m super excited you made an FIV kitty, and I actually just ordered mine. :) 

I wanted to clarify a couple of things as someone who has two FIV+ cats and one FIV- cat as companion animals though. 

As noted, most FIV+ cats live long lives if they’re properly cared for. 

FIV+ cats tend to be extremely docile. Obviously this may not always be the case, but having an FIV+ cat and an FIV- cat living together is fine the vast majority of the time (as long as they are spayed/neutered). If the cats do not get along, then it’s a problem, but since FIV can only be transmitted through deep bite wounds, it takes some serious, non-playful combat for an FIV+ to infect another cat. Bites like this are very rare in a domesticated setting.

If both of the cats are friendly and good with other cats, an FIV+ and an FIV- cat living together will be fine. And really, you shouldn’t be keeping together cats that seriously fight anyway (of course!). We have two FIV+ cats and one FIV-, and they’re best friends.

Of course your FIV- cat should be a 100% indoor cat as well, because you wouldn’t want to risk them bringing infections inside. 

I think the no FIV+ cats with FIV- cats stigma does cause some FIV+ kitties to go unadopted, so I wanted to clarify as someone with a lot of experience with these kitties!

Here’s a couple of good sources- 1, 2

I’m so glad to hear you have both an FIV+ and An FIV- kitty! Of course in cases like yours, it is possible, I am just recommending the safest possible option for everyone. Use your own discretion, I just can’t recommend something that would possibly put someone’s cat at risk, even if the risk is very small.
Every kitty is different, so just make sure that no matter what you guys do, make sure to be well informed and do what’s best for your kitties!

I’ve personally heard many stories of FIV+ cats living together with FIV- cats :) Thanks for the additional info!

Fakir seeing Ahiru off at the airport gate before she boards her plane! Maybe this is some AU where Fakir’s a novelist and Ahiru is an up and coming dancer? One can dream. ;3;

I like those moments of Al just being done with everything and being COMPLETELY TERRIFYING

-Remember when he stopped Ed if he hit Tucker more he would die and Tucker tried to keep talking and Al was like “but also if you keep talking I will be the one to lose it”…
