Always two there are, a master and an apprentice.
”When your power eclipses mine I will become expendable. This is the Rule of Two: one Master and one apprentice. When you are ready to claim the mantle of Dark Lord as your own, you must do so by eliminating me.”
SANSA STARK, SITH LORD, IS AN AU I NEED YESTERDAY OH MY GOD.
I’m going to say this as a warning, and hopefully I’ll remember to delete all these posts later, I’m going through the torturous process of drinking the stuff again, and no one is up so I’m just going to complain to my blog for a bit. It’ll all be under the read mores hopefully.

I can go into more detail! I’m a paleontologist, that’s my favorite part is telling you what was around 300mya
ok, I am gone, I’m going to load all the fic onto my kindle and then disappear until I’m done with the scope tomorrow
The Titanoboa, is a 48ft long snake dating from around 60-58million years ago. It had a rib cage 2ft wide, allowing it to eat whole crocodiles, and surrounding the ribcage were muscles so powerful that it could crush a rhino. Titanoboa was so big it couldn’t even spend long amounts of time on land, because the force of gravity acting on it would cause it to suffocate under its own weight.
I’m so glad they aren’t around
omg me too. I’m scared enough of 26 ft long anacondas. I’m so happy Megalodons, those giant sharks, aren’t alive either
Praise natural selection
I remember watching Walking with Beasts or something similar, or some British tv show about evolution
The subject was something like a 12 foot long water scorpion
I was so startled by its sudden appearance and narration that I yelped: “12 fucking feet?!?! I’m fucking glad it’s extinct!”
Dude, prehistory was home to some fucking TERRIFYING creatures. For some reason, everything back then was enormous and scary. Extinction doesn’t always have to be a bad thing!
And Poppy, what you saw was an arthropod known as Pterygotus (it was actually featured in Walking With Monsters). Not only was it as big (or maybe even bigger) than your average human, it had a stinger the size of a lightbulb. REALLY glad that bugger isn’t around anymore.
Also, Megalodon deserves to be mention again, because just hearing its name makes me want to never be submerged in water ever again.
GOD, I HATE THIS POST. HOW DO WE EVEN KNOW THAT SHIT ISN’T STILL AROUND? LURKING? EVOLVING? WE DON’T. WE DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT SHIT DOWN THERE. THE OCEAN IS A PRIMEVAL HELLSCAPE NIGHTMARE AND WE ALL JUST DIP OUR STUPID FRAGILE UNPROTECTED FETUS BODIES AROUND THE EDGES OF IT LIKE THAT’S NORMAL. FUCK THE OCEAN.
Wow, you guys missed the best parts. Try the insects of the Carboniferous! There were dragonflies with 2ft wingspans and cockroaches about 10” long, not to mention Megapelura which is basically a centipede that was 2 ft wide and who knows how long.
I just found this random gif on my comp from the other day. I remember wanting to take more but I had to leave for the movie. What are you even expressing Hiccup?
