Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

thelimabeaner asked: Hi! I just re-read Once in a Lullaby (still one of my favorite Klaine fics ever) and had a quick question - do Briony, Kurt and Blaine ever go tell Hana's family what happened to her/where she went?

Hi there! Wow, that’s so neat to hear that you re-read the fic. I take that as the biggest compliment that you liked it enough to read it again. Thank you so much for sharing that with me. You’ve made my day!

Yes, they find Hana’s family and tell them what happened to her. Briony lived in Here most of her life and knows almost everyone there so after she came back, it got a lot easier to track down everyone’s family and explain everything.

Anonymous asked: Super excited about final part of Roswell. No idea how you're going to resolve all the questions and mysteries that are still unanswered but that's what's exciting about the story I guess. Just a quick qn: was the death of Finn in the story plan from the beginning or was that something that happened after Cory's death? If it was in from the beginning, did you consider changing it at all after he had died?

Hello, anon! I’m so, so glad that you’re enjoying the story. I hope the final chapter wraps everything up, but if it doesn’t you can leave me a list of questions I’ll answer. The story is so long already, but even so, I didn’t manged to include all the Roswell mythology so there might be a few loose ends.

Finn’s death was planned from the very beginning when I started writing this story in March 2012. Each of the Glee characters were assigned a Roswell character role. Finn was matched up with Alex, and Alex died at the end of the second season of Roswell. I had already written Finn’s death in the story when Cory passed away. Yes, I seriously considered changing it, but I didn’t see how I could. The rest of the story, which was also already written, hinged on that moment. After some thought, and a lot of time passing between then and now, I decided to leave the story as is. 

Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.

Yes, War of the Words has been plagiarized. I’ve sent the person who changed the names and re-posted it a message asking them to please remove it immediately. I’m willing to let the matter drop after that. If, however, they won’t remove the fic, I’ll have to report the blog and ask for your help with that.

Thank you to the anon who let me know about this. Let’s hope the person will remove the fic without a fuss.

The story has been removed from the plagiarists’ LiveJournal. I’m now waiting for confirmation that it has been removed from a fanfic community as well.

I’ve received confirmation that the story has been removed from the fanfic community where they plagiarized War of the Words as well as from their LiveJournal. I never received any kind of defense/explanation or apology from them so I don’t know why they thought this was okay.

I was going to let the subject drop after War of the Words was removed. My fics have been plagiarized before by new writers who didn’t realize what they were doing was wrong. I try to be patient and give the benefit of the doubt when something like this happens. However, I’ve been informed that this person has plagiarized multiple times. There are still fanfics on their LiveJournal which may or may not be plagiarized.  If you think any of the fics on their LiveJournal are plagiarized, please report them to the original author and LiveJournal.
