think about these things when you’re making a fictional place; even a developed city has its roots in how easy it was to settle in the first place!
- this site has additional info, diagrams, worksheets, and models, as well as information on things like coasts, volcanoes, and populations
- look at real life sources for climates. Consider the way that your continent(s) lay in relation to their equator, and the weather and types of flora and fauna and peoples that adapted to it.
- think about pangea. If you have multiple continents, do they fit together like a jigsaw?
- when in doubt, look at the natural world around you and think about what would change if something was drastically different. Look at the reactions between parts of our world and change them.
- play civilization games and think about the things that go into making decisions there
Laverne Cox in the music video for "You & I" by John Legend
Side note: This video is beautiful and wonderful and I cried
This is legit so beautiful. Like. Future wedding song right here I stg
she has an incredible amount of sexual lure about her and it’s mesmerzing
Please watch this music video. Oh my God. The diversity is so amazing and refreshing. They include almost if not every race. They have a woman with vitiligo. They have lesbians. It has body diversity. It shows women’s breasts and bodies in an unsexualized way. There’s a little girl with downs syndrome. AND LAVERNE. ONE SHE’S SO FUCKING STUNNING EVEN WITHOUT MAKEUP BUT OH MY GOD A TRANS WOMEN. THE REPRESENTATION. My favorite part though, besides all of the different women, was probably the way they were portayed. We see them putting on makeup, we see them taking it off. We see women on their wedding days, we see women with their children. We see women sick. We see little and young girls, too. We see women in suits being powerful. We see women going to job interviews and at school. We see women graduating from college. We see women crying. We see women laughing. We see women showering and at unflattering angles and we see women exercising and kissing their partners and we see women as something we hardly ever, ever see in the mainstream media… People. We see realistic women doing things that women do and it’s just so beautiful and refreshing.
I started sobbing because of this video

"Tales of the Macabre" by Edgar Allan Poe (illustrated by Benjamin Lacombe). This is such a beautiful book!
Got it? Good.
now take a moment to remember that this is all stop-motion animation
now take another moment to remember this was a movie/animation for kids.
Based on a book written for kids.
Not sure what the big deal about that is? It’s only Americans who seem to think kids can’t handle anything slightly unpleasant, and must have everything sanitized for them. Neil Gaiman is British, he knows that kids are not only very capable of dealing with darkness, but live in a world much darker than adults seem to think or remember kids do.
Children’s stories from everywhere else around the world deal with death, and violence, and morbid, scary things, quite frankly.
The goal was to create a bookshop that doubled as a meeting place and as these images attest they seem to have done a fine job. The open well-light floor plan allows for a comfortable shopping experience as well as encouraging customers to hang around and enjoy the space.
