This is the multi-fandom and general life blog of a 26-year-old asexual Canadian bibliophile.
Once I tried to keep track of all the fandoms I can/will blog about at the drop of a hat, but there were too many so I gave up. Sorry.
I'm also enamoured of food, puns, history, photography, and adorable animals.
Feel free to talk to me either here on tumblr, or on skype, where I am brillig_and (let me know who you are first if you want to add me on skype though)
Roomba is happily whirring around sucking up dirt and Molly is alternately keening in distress/trying to climb up into my lap, and barking at it.
okay but how about this
a centaur who barely makes it up to your waist but hates when you point that out
a mermaid who spends her time splashing around in your sink
a gryphon who spends all her time flying in circles around your head
a six-inch basilisk that makes you feel a little dizzy if you look it in the eye
AN ASURA WHO’S ONLY A FEW INCHES TALL SO HE SETTLES FOR REARRANGING AROUND THE STUFF ON YOUR DESK WHILE YOU SLEEP
A DRAGON THE SIZE OF YOUR CAT THAT CAN STILL BREATHE FIRE THAT MELTS STEEL IN SECONDS
TINY MYTHICAL CREATURES
flower language has always been an intense source of disappointment for me
like, they all mean really generic things like “love” or “forever” or “i’m sorry”
i thought you could combine flowers
like you could just send someone a bouquet and from the combination of hibiscus and posies and tulips they’d understand “the rebel leader is dead, rendezvous at the docks at 8, bring the dog, you will need lighter fluid and a large tomato”
I really hope no one’s answered this for you yet, I saw this and got so excited that my obscure knowledge base might come into use. I had to stretch a few flowers so to speak but Victorian flower language allows for alteration in meaning depending on colour, fruit, flower, bud, steam, leaves and thorns, so I didn’t feel I was too far out of line. This message would work best as two bouquets bound together. First red Nasturtium with no leaves (red denotes a leader, the nasturtium a patriot) mixed with white or red Mask Flowers (rebellion, red if you want to emphasize fighting, white martyrdom) around Cypress (death). Then Chick weed (rendezvous) and Blue Convolvulus (night) surrounded by eight White Popular Leaves (symbolises the time: eight), Yellow Iris (flame, and a flower that grows by rivers) and Yellow Prarie Dock Flowers (this was closest I could find to docks)and one large Tomato Leaf, all bound in Dogwood Bark. Dogwood represents deceit, but as far as I could find the bark wasn’t used symbolically, and as you referred to the dog instead of a dog, I thought it was likely the pun should be a dead giveaway.
So there’s your rebel message!
