OMG MY CHILDHOOD
Ugh, I’m in a really down mood right now
Something got into my caterpillars cage last night and massacred them. I managed to save 10 of them but I’m just really sad, because I feel like it’s my fault. I can’t remember if I secured the lid as tightly as a usually do when I usualy feed them, but it looks like something pried the lid off…I had around 35 and they were all about to cocoon…
And man…I think I’m more shocked at the state the caterpillars were in and the fact that some were still alive despite missing their entire body or half their heads…it was really disturbing to leave the ones who were too damaged to save outside to be finished off.
Plus all the time and effort I put into them just feels wasted. I’m trying to rationalize this, since I had another 35 that cocooned two weeks earlier, and maybe its a good thing that I lost a bunch because 60 cocoons is a lot. Plus the experiment wrapped up last week, so my results are tabulated and submitted. But at the same time I don’t know if the 35 are viable cocoons because I was experimenting on them and it may have messed up their reproductive systems (as other studies have speculated).
I’m glad I managed to find and save ten, but it’s all just so disturbing and sad. I can’t really express to anyone how much their loss meant to me either because hey they’re just bugs and it’s the circle of life, but it still makes me sad that this happened to them.
Yeah, so I decided to be that douche-bag who took it too far.
But omg, that blurb they included with the new release gave me feels. Like, ouch, seriously. Part of me hopes they do a little short story like they did with Red and Raven’s origins, because it’d be interesting to see exactly how Raven died (other than the reason that Varien left Scandroid). Plus all the official artwork released with the track was gorgeous and I’m super jealous I can’t art that good…
Nothing is ever safe in the volatile streets of Old Tokyo, and more specially - no one. Raven is gone, and Red is alone, but not without cause. Scandroid will live on. They cannot take that from him.
Taking silk moth rearing to the next level: SCIENCE
So I’m currently doing a research on how higher temperatures affect the growth of caterpillars. These are my results so far.
The bigger caterpillar was subject to high temps of 40C and low temps of 22C everyday, while the smaller ones were put outside and faced natural temperatures ( high 30C low 12C).
Both caterpillars are siblings, born at the same time.
So yeah…MASSIVE size difference.
Annual celebration of our passage through the birth canal…
I’ve seen the first image go around with captions about how this is what L most likely looks like, given that L is a quarter Japanese and three quarters European. But this whole image set by Bobby Raffin is way too cute! The awkward images at the end just suit L so perfectly and they’re unsettling in a way that gives the perfect impression of just how uncomfortable and bizarre a presence L is to be around.
Which is a roundabout way of saying I have the weirdest boner right now.
I like how the shirt isn’t immaculately white— even reading the manga I had the impression that for all the money this guy had to be rolling in, he should look way more like a hobo.
You know, more than he already does.
This definitely captures my mental image of the character.
Yeah my boner isn’t even weird. It just is.Oh dear lord gimme this man please
He made L even more attractive.
CONGRATS ON YOUR EVERYTHING.
he is so cute ohmyg //holds him
I used to attended the same high school with this guy, though he was in grade 11/12 when I started….I looked at the name and was like…Bobby Raffin, the sexy pink robot from halloween…THAT BOBBY RAFFIN?! Apparently so. Glad to see his modeling dream came true.
