The underground homes, often a
century old, are topped with gardens exploding with lush dune
grass, diamondleaf willows, and yellow wildflowers—a flash of color in
an otherwise gray landscape.
“They’re bright green and everything around them is just brown,” says Brian Person, a wildlife biologist for the North Slope Borough in Barrow, Alaska. “It pops”…
I can die happy now that I know this fact.
I am now picturing soft little foxes with watering cans and spades planting and tending to their Fox Gardens
gettin ready for the winter

wear your armor
whether it’s makeup, a band tshirt, your fandom pins, tattoos, jewelry, your favorite ripped pair of jeans, or something no one else can touch or see like your favorite song repeating like a mantra in your head, the sound of your own heartbeat, or the knowledge that you were brave enough to get out of bed today when everything else inside you said “no”
wear your armor and kick ass
I’d just like to mention:
You can be ace or aro and devoted to deities lumped in with the whole “fertility” thing. You can. You are accepted. Fertility doesn’t have to do exclusively with biological procreation. It’s about bounty and creating things. These things can be intellectual. Artistic. Anything you can imagine. It’s about creation and plentifulness.
Do not feel bad if the sexual innuendos put you off. Non ace/aro people who are devotees, please remember others when posting and tag accordingly. You don’t have to be sexual to be associated with a deity who is commonly associated with sex, but who is much more than that.
Even fertility deities have more layers to them than sex. Never let anyone tell you it’s unnatural or wrong to be ace.
This this this.
You are not broken or lesser.
Fertility deities are not just about “sex” and biological procreation.
It’s also not about giving to deities of fertility for the fertility of the overall city, or worshipping populace. Please don’t misunderstand. It’s not about you interacting with the deities you don’t really connect with on behalf of others.
I am saying that you, personally, as a solitary, can connect with and gain benefit from deities who are stereotypically associated with sex and biological procreation and it does not have to be about that. Not for you, not for your neighbors. If you are an ace and aro artist, they can encourage and help you be more productive with your work and gaining bountiful income from it, for example. It does not necessarily have anything to do with sex. None of it needs to. They are about fertility and bounty, which is not necessarily associated with sex depending on the context.

He said that he would like to experiment with tease and denial more. She decided that there was no time like the present.
