Last Night in Ferguson (9.28-9.29): Last night’s protest was one of the in Ferguson this month, proving once again that the residents of Ferguson/STL County are some of the most resilient and inspiring in all the land. The police were literally holding peaceful protesters hostage late into the night (folks who were complying with all police requests) so they could negotiate with the remaining folks to leave, but the protesters didn’t back down. Eventually all arrestees were released, and many plan to be back out there tonight.
Injustice in Ferguson continues, but despite it, community now thrives too. This is still happening. Are you still paying attention? #staywoke #farfromover

witch of her agescitech agent shield ever saw, took advantage of the fact that hydra (actually, coulson) completely erased her identity and all of her accomplishments from the face of the earth, and used her clean slate to infiltrate hydra, a known terrorist agency that she has first hand experience with and a legitimate reason to fear, by herself because she is a goddamn hero
So, this got touched on a little in “Antifungal Agent”, but wyrms lay five eggs to a clutch and of those eggs two will be traj - wyrms who fight and are very physically strong, two will be kahn - wyrms who hunt and acquire things, and one will be a shol - the wyrm that looks after other wyrms, the children of their nestmates. And traj and kahn are not exactly solid in their defining qualities? Like, traj usually lay the eggs but what makes a traj and a kahn is more their attributes than who the eggs come from. (Shol, however, very rarely reproduce. Whether they don’t have the biology/drive/opportunity to do so is unknown. Well, wyrms probably know, but they don’t really get why other people are so interested in where eggs come from.)
So, having five eggs in a clutch and four of them going on to reproduce, wyrms used to be a sturdy population. There were often communities of them, with guidelines as to who could [pair or mate or fall in love] with who. But Dark Elves hunt some wyrms and capture others, and between the hunting and their homes getting fucked right over due to war/acquisition of natural resources, the wyrm population was greatly reduced and also their social systems were messed right up.
So. Boryn was a shol, but without any nestmates or nibblings to look after, the kind of structures that Boryn grew up with were just… gone. So Boryn thought it over, and decided that since pjr wasn’t much of a fighter but was relatively bright for a shol, pjr would just… decide to be kahn. Boryn would go and find somewhere that didn’t have any elves, and then Boryn would find a horde, and then… Well, when those two goals where achived, then Boryn would try to figure out what should come after that.
And Boyrn just so happened to meet Phil, who explained different kinds of hordes and different kinds of values. And then Phil took Boryn to a school, and a school is basically just a HORDE of NIBLINGS. You put little valuable nibblings all into one place and you give them knowledge which is a valuable thing, and it makes the nibblings even MORE valuable. And and and… And Boryn has a horde of weird little not-wyrm nibblings and a horde of books and the two shall be combined to be THE BEST HORDE EVER.
(And because Boryn is more savvy than most people realise, pjr has done a good job of making sure that Phil hasn’t cottoned on to what Boryn’s real horde is.)
THIS IS THE CUTEST THING. Oh Boryn…
