WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

IT’S A NIGHT FURY

WHAT

Night furies and wizards are pretty cool, but you know what’s also really neat? Sources!
You can watch the video this gif is from here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/28838200
They explain it, but if you DONT want to click or just cant right now - the fish is trying to eat a wee little shrimp called an ostracod. The ostracod lights up brightly as a defense mechanism, causing the fish to spit it out.

I’m super scared of editing that post because of how many tries it took before the readmore worked properly I’m sorry if I break it and anyone ends up with five years worth of random notes on their dash

Also Corgi is writing about them I just dumped in all the random useless information because thats helpful for someone who is actually actively writing about them if you scrublords who liked it actually read all of it then you’re stinking brave and I applaud you

Filed under spends my life wondering how long it takes people to regret following me laughs loudly

Hey! Tumblr user theoldaeroplane !! I finally did the thing. Lazily but hey you have a reference now. 
[[MORE]]
(im so sorry to everyone else this is just a straight up infodump of various things about these characters more than I would USUALLY PUT but corgi is writing about them so little nonsense things are prob more appreciated.)
Physical notes: (these sketches are not 100% accurate to their body types I just WANTED TO GET IT DONE LAUGHS but its somewhat close)
Sunspot’s hair is very tightly pinned by some very, very patient ponies before shows. She has been known to moonlight as a clown but her actual job in the show is doing tricks with cloud formations. Wings are quite a bit larger and more useful than Sun Dog’s. 
Her ears are shorter and rounder than Sundog, and she’s generally going to have somewhat more solid limbs. Circus work isn’t all clouds and rainbows! (Wait a minute…) 
Very talented at weather working, and cloudfluff is constantly getting tangled up and hiding in her hair because it just really likes her and wants to follow her home all the time. . She has a ritual self-shakedown before she goes to visit Sun Dog because we ALL KNOW SUN DOG IS TERRIBLY ALLERGIC TO THE STUFF, but even then its hard to get rid of it all. 
Official adopted parents are a delightful pair of out in the boonies earth pony farmers. They keep sheep. Unofficial adopted parents are Sun Dog’s parents. She was adopted twice in her opinion and she likes to brag about it. 
Favourite game is pony crossing (but all games are good. All of them. Every last one.)
Body language/default postures are going to be power stances - feet solidly planted apart, making a general rectangle with her body. High energy, very friendly, leaps before she looks, speaks before she thinks, tends to think of the world in terms of a game. 
Sundog: 
Ears are larger than normal and somewhat pointed, average height. Hooves are only slightly fluffy. Wings are not ill-groomed but they’re on the smaller side, and are weak. Flapping stirs up dust and pollen and clouds, you see. She’d really just rather walk. 
Allergic to the outdoors. And probably life. Probably everything but books and book glue. Definitely allergic to dust, pollen, most types of grass, clouds, mold, moss… If drawn younger, coat and mane are mugh brighter and more saturated. As she grew older and went outside less and less, she got more and more visually dim.
She keeps dust masks in her bag and before the entryway of her house is a trough where she washes her hooves off. She doesn’t have a garden (for obvious reasons) but Sunspot gives her potted succulents. Sun Dog isn’t entirely sure why she started doing that, but she keeps them around. She has an occasional absentminded habit (one that gets more frequently seen the longer she’s outside) of rubbing one back hoof against the other. Allergies make things uncomfortably itchy as the kindest thing they can do.
Works as an archivist at the town hall. Everyone thinks she’s a secretary (and boy howdy doesn’t Sunspot love to compare her to the adorable secretary in pony crossing) which is not technically 100% accurate, but she lets it slide. 
Body shapes are rounded triangles - wider base down. She’s a solid, if sometimes sharp, force. Hair is the softest and messiest thing about her - it’s kept in braids, but they tend to be loose and a little slept-on. It makes her less visually sharp and severe.
Personality is fairly congenial and she’s not an awkward shut in, but she can be sharp and she is a lot more easy going when things are going according to her plan anyway. She finds it difficult to make sudden shifts in objective.
It’s much easier for her to laser in on a task and complete it all the way through than to stop mid stride and instantly focus on something else. She’ll need a minute to reorganize her thoughts and plans, you can’t just shout at her to do something new and have her instantly do it. (Sunspot tried to have her play a tabletop with her group once. Literally shouting - not meanly - at her to have her character run in a new direction was disorienting and upsetting and Sun Dog’s inability to Just Do it was baffling for sunspot and they dont like to talk about that day or that game any more.)
She is a huge nerd. She likes to know everything. Her life goal is probably to become a Magic Librarian in a Great Big Library of Everything. When she dies thats probably what her ghost will go do. What a huge nerd. NERD. NEEEEEERD. NEEEEEEEEERD. lets be honest both of them are nerds just in terribly different ways. 
Please do not forget her sun dogs! She is lightly speckled all over, but the two bigger spots on her face are important, and they also encroach on her irises. Only a little on one side, and taking up almost all of it on the other. 
Relationship with her family is good, despite Sun Dog not joining the family (circus) business.

Sage is approx 64% leg, 24% sharp angles, 8% percent teeth and 4% SHEDDING HAIR. 

Thats what I put up with that’s my animal thats what he’s made out of. 

Filed under okay he's only eight percent teeth around me it goes down to like 2 when around other people but the shedding hair goes up in return so i dont know if i can explain just how uncomfortable it is to have Sage sit on you because when he cuddles its not like a side by side cuddle its right in your lap and his bones could CUT DIAMONDS HE DOESNT HAVE ANY PADDING I DONT UNDERSTAND HOW SOMETHING SO BONEY IS SO CUDDLY BUT AT THE SAME TIME NOT CUDDLY AT ALL my dogs my sage

The Pillowing group on DA has been running a draw-to-adopt event. I think the pillowing up for grabs is just about the CUTEST THING so I drew it having some really solid nap time for my entry. 

I’ve been having a really … my week has been something, at the very least, so I wanted to do a bit more on these but TIME AND ENERGY DEMANDS for other things leave me wanting to do nothing but nap too, haha.

Right now Corgi and I are just this disgusting endless loop of PONY feeding into each other. 

I started hardcore working on dogwood 2.0 custom and then she started WRITING HER PONY EPIC which required me to write some small fun snippets about sun dog, sunspot and the cirrus circus so that she could get to know them and then she went digging around in her pony toys and realized she super needs a Summer custom toy and I’m just like yes I would like to see if I can learn how to comic or otherwise vis storytell these little things I wrote about my sun girls because they’re the cutest no one can tell me otherwise and I want to share the lil story bits I wrote with other people BECAUSE I LIKE MY GIRLS 

there is no escaping this pony pit at some point we’re going to have to burn out and be RELEASED FROM ITS TERRIBLE GRASP but who knows when

#I’M SENSING SOME SELF-AND-MOIRAIL INSERT CORGI

LAUGHS, i noticed that too! it wasn’t super intentional (and will change a lot as the story goes on i think)! also summer is too tall to be me and noel is a unicorn not a pegasus, MYTH BUSTED

there is a lot of myself in Summer’s anxiety and overall thought patterns, and i couldn’t help putting tiny bits of noel into sun dog. Sunspot was a gimme on noel’s part, though, she’s the one who decided Spot’s a gamer. I just took that and ran off laughing!!

When corgi told me that in her writing for Sun Dog, she was putting bits of me in, I was surprised (because I think sun dog is the CUTEST but I dont see anything of my own personality in her) and asked “How so?”

Corgi’s reply was that we’re “both always right” 

TAKES THAT AND RUNS OFF INTO THE DISTANCE, LAUGHING

Filed under its a pone thing its a pone oc thing even though when sunspot and summer were both made corgi and i ended up having several big talks about character cration habits and comfort defaults sun dog was actually created with intent on my part i put a lot of thought into her design EVEN THOUGH JUST A PONY IT ISNT EVEN NOTICABLE but sunspot was a oops i made a thing without thinking about it and now i have to find out who she is after the fact
