Made a toy-version of sam and gene for my friends bd
OMG I wanted to finish with both Davis twins! In the end I only finished the sketch of Naru yesterday night. T-T Anyway a slightly delayed birthday art- originally posted in my Deviantart
I miss Life on Mars. 😔
And today on “Questions I have after watching Ashes to Ashes”:
What were Gene and Alex planning on saying if they got caught bugging Mac’s office?
I mean I know they take different routes back to the station but...it’s a police station...don’t they have people doing night shifts?.....not to mention their colleagues are incapable of minding their own business....they have no excuse for why they’d be in Mac’s office in the middle of the night....even if they were seen in Gene’s office they could say they were going over a case or even say “we’re having an affair“ which is what everyone thinks anyway...I just don’t know how they would have excused that and it bothers me every time I watch 2x04 now.
This is just my theory on Mai, Naru, and Gene's relationship as far as the manga goes.
At the end of the manga,Mai realizes she had been in love with Gene the whole time and NOT Naru bc she preferred dream Naru above all else.
In the sequel manga, Mai is kind of indifferent towards Naru, she kinda just sees him as a friend/boss/ someone who has experienced the same loss as him (ie. Losing Gene). Maybe it was just bc it was only 1 case and seemed a bit convoluted, they just seemed like coworkers bickering once in a while like old friends. I personally believe she had stopped having feelings for Naru once she realized she loved Gene not him.
Which brings me to my next point. The author says Mai and Naru would get together in the future but she was not interested in writing romance.
I believe that after years of working with Naru and getting used to his quirks, I think she would grow to love him once more. This time seeing him as Naru and not mistaking him for someone else. Vice versa I believe that Naru would start to love Mai seeing as he already enjoys her company. He's always worrying about her bc she's still a novice and always manages to find trouble. But also she is incredibly gifted and seeing as her powers continue to grow he would definitely be more invested in her as an asset. And they would spend a lot more time together, Mai would emotionally mature and calm down to the point she can have a normal convo w him without yelling and just overall become a professional in her own right.
So yeah basically I think they would both start to realize they have feelings for each other but given how they are still teenagers when we last see them, I think they are still far away from being emotional capable of confessing.
I would say mid 20s at the very least.
Bc when it comes to Naru, he's not very vocal as far as we have known him, and even Lin has known him as a child and he's always been reserved and not interested in love. I just think he would become so comfortable with Mai and sharing his thoughts with her that she would be a safe space for him, esp since they're both orphans and have losses important ppl in their lives. I see them leaning on each other for support. And ideally it's my headcanon that she eventually gets taught how to become a perfect medium that she and Naru would literally be the definition of a power couple. But yes if anyone would like to discuss pls shoot me a message. I can talk about this for hours
not to have had genetic science as a special interest for a bit, but people taking the acronym GMO and assuming it just means like, scifi style labratory evil science makes me like irrationally angry.
like okay so thw acronym: Genetically modified organism.
what that means: the genes (the code that the majority of living things have, to my knowledge) of an organism (literally anything alive is an organism its like the most basic way to say "everything including bacteria, fungi and elephants" because those are alll such different catagories and stuff) are modified (changed, directly or indirectly for a specific outcome).
how that works: so theres actually more than one way for genetic modification to occur but the most basic was is selective breeding and domestication. so like, if you have a pet cat or have a garden with onions or potatoes. those are genetically modified organisms. ESPECIALLY if either of them come from a linage that was specifically breed for specific traits.
but like, a lot of people dont realise that so theyll be all Ooh im only gonna eat specific foods that had a label that says its non gmo even though like. the majority of food that is farmed is a domesticated species and has been a gmo (which like, gmos arent inherently bad!! genetic modification just fuckin is!!!) longer than the genes that came to exist as you have been a possibility.
"but arent there still bad uses of genetic modification?" YES, like how pugs or bull dogs or those flat faced cats were all bred to have fucked up noses so now they have breathing problems. THATS a bad use of genetic modification. however a group of plant nerds working to get tomatoes that are hardier and can grow in most climates and wont fuck up the soil arent gonna poison you and your kids.
ALSO some plants will genetically modify themselves via cross pollenation. thats how we got some species of citrus!
TL;DR: GMO doesnt stand for an evil dude in a lab coat with a giant machine injecting a bunch of fruits and meats with evil gene juices. if you have a pet dog or a house plant from a store, youve got a genetically modified organism.
i just finiished ashes to ashes for the first time :) seems like a great first post
i am CRYING SO HARD AAHH like please draws fanart and reads fics to cope hshhgssgjsgjsg :stresst_lvoe:
another world building au post
I’m bored so I want to speak on dog/deer dynamics. Since we again, don’t get that much about the dogs—I liked to think that, the deer were the ones who helped liberate them from the wolves, so dogs and deer were close. This history is of course lost in beastars present day time, but that’s what happened.
When the wolves experimented on/created the dogs—they realize they were failures. Most of the dogs they had created were things like labs, huskies, etc., working dogs. Because of the failure on the wolves parts and dogs not really being what they thought they were, dogs were just used by wolves for pretty much anything, and the dogs belonged to the wolves.
It wasn’t until years later, that the deer actually caught wind of this. Early deer communities were secluded from other herbivore communities mostly because they didn’t get along with them, and were considered dangerous (I explain this in my deer vs sheep au), but they had no problem interacting with carnivores, especially wolves. They all had numbers too great to actually fight each other so they were neutral.
But the deer saw what was happening with the dogs since they lived in the same area and would secretly sneak into wolf communities and steal/rescue dogs. Of course, the wolves caught on to this—but by this time, a substantial amount of dogs and data were missing. At this point, deer had also helped the dogs create/evolve into other species that could actually kill wolves (i.e great pyrenees, english sheep dog (like collot), malamute, german shepherd, wolf hounds, elk hounds, etc.)
Yet at this point, there was an all out war. After a few years or so of a clash between the wolves vs deer + dogs, they all made a treaty. Wolves ended up freeing the dogs, and the deer allowed the wolves to have some fo their land. The dogs were able to be free and start their own lives. So YEAH- this is lost history but it’s something I like. Also, it’s not rare for dog to have deer dan or vice versa like way down the line. Like a deer can have dog great great great x 5 grandparents if in fact, that deer came from that area, or vice versa.

Remembering my dad’s words
One of my friends asked others to remember things their dads said. Here’s what I responded, and I’d love to hear your dads’ words, as well: “Make sure it has antlers before you pull the trigger.” My first time deer hunting, and I didn’t have a doe permit. More importantly, he didn’t want me to shoot a cow. I didn’t. One shot, one deer down. First time out. Thirteen years old. 1968.

Life on Mars
I find their final scene absolutely heart wrenching because for me it truly demonstrates what they lost in the aftermath of operation rose. It is the first time throughout the entirety of series three where they seem to have the understanding of each other and the compassion for each other that they have in series two.
One of the most important things is that Alex isn’t begging Gene to come with her, she’s begging to be allowed to stay. She knows he has to stay, he still has a job to do, but she can’t leave him alone. She remembers the Gene she met in 1981, still reeling from the loss of his best friend, the Gene who visited her in hospital after he was shot and she doesn’t feel like she can let him go back to being that person.
Gene’s quiet insistence that she needs to go reflects the fact that the world they’re in isn’t safe for her anymore, but equally it never has been. He spends a fair amount of series two rescuing her (When she’s kidnapped in 2x01, when she’s almost shot in 2x03 etc) his desire to keep her safe and look after the souls in his world overrides his desire for her to stay. He knows he can’t keep her safe if she stays (the fact that they almost lose the glow up trio is a testament to that).
Deep down, Alex knows it’s what needs to happen as well, which is why she doesn’t argue with him, once he tells her “Weren’t bad though were we?”, she trusts his judgement and trusts that he’s doing the right thing, the same way she does when he asks her to stay in 2x07.
In a series where their trust has gone and their relationship is shattered they realise how to be a team again when it reaches the endgame.
(I’m sorry if this makes no sense, I was just re-watching 3x08 and reminded of how emotional it gets me)
started working through a palette challenge made by xiss0r that I found via google
I wanted to thank everyone who has read this, I’m sorry it’s taken so long for an update but here is chapter 20, hopefully it won’t be too long now before my next update. Sending love and good vibes to everyone 💕💕💕
