13-Year-Old Girl Symbolizes Future of Mongolian Tradition - Asher Svidensky
During a four-month stay in the mountains of western Mongolia, photographer Asher Svidensky captured a stunning collection of images that shed a light on Mongolian girls and their golden eagles. “Berkutchy,” the practice of raising a bird of prey to hunt for food throughout the year, was originally a male-only pursuit, but as more and more men head into the cities, women have taken up the torch.

Manga Rec - Immortal Rain (Meteor Methuselah)
Summary: Rain Jewlitt, known as the Methuselah, is a spaced-out, immortal, 624-year-old man dressed in priest’s clothes. He’s got eternal youth and a large price on his head… put there by those questing after the secret of his immortality. Machika Balfaltin is a tomboyish, energetic 14-year-old girl who, upon the death of her grandfather, sets out to kill Methuselah, the one bounty her assassin grandfather, Zol the Grim Reaper, couldn’t kill. Instead, however, Machika ends up being saved by Rain again and again from other aspiring bounty hunters attacking them both. Sound like the beginnings of an odd relationship? You won’t believe where their journey takes them… x
also talking about accusations such as not actually being from Iraq and his Drift compatibleness with Iskander coming from a shared alcohol problem
Allow me to point out that the following are all actual things that appear in the older tales about the Knights:
Sir Kay is said to have had the power to grow to giant size, hold his breath for nine days, and radiate supernatural heat from his hands.
Sir Bedivere openly practiced sorcery, and suffered from an accordingly sinister reputation; on more than one occasion, he was saved from being hanged as a witch only by King Arthur’s testimonly to his good character.
Sir Galahad possessed supernatural strength and speed by virtue of his moral and sexual purity - making him a rare example of a male character with virginity-fueled super powers.
Sir Balin once wielded the Lance of Longinus, and blew up an entire kingdom with a single blow. He also fought an evil knight with the power of invisibility.
Sir Marrock was a freaking werewolf.
Conclusion: modern depctions of the Knights of the Round Table aren’t anime enough."
Doodled some Immortal Rain (or Meteor Methuselah however you call it) when I finished the series and was bit bored at work. Also figured out I can never make fanart that it wold actually deserve.
What cute art!
I made a slideshow about how to create a fictional character… I got most of the information from the ‘start writing fiction’ (free) course on the OpenUniversity website and found it incredibly useful so here’s a visual version for you :)
