Bettas have always been samurais to me. You could say I should have chosen a thai warrior but nope, I´m sorry not sorry, I´ve been keeping this concept in my mind for a long time.
I used to have one (like the red one) named Kuro.
Samurai bettas! This picture has all my love and more!
I regret to say that my beautiful boy Kaiju, formerly Feesh, formerly Jack Frost, has passed away. He has been struggling with a severe infection for some time now, so I am at least relieved that he is no longer suffering. I was planning on putting him down tonight, but as soon as I stepped out from taking a shower, he was gone.
He was a wonderful marble dragonscale plakat that I chose because of his adorable face and bright attitude. Even though he liked to pretend he was a big, scary monster, he was really a scaredyfish at heart that enjoyed the simple pleasures of life, like building elaborate bubblenests and chilling in his plant. He put up with all kinds of nonsense like long car rides to and from school (which he hated) and temporary dwarf frog roommates (EXTRA hate, his beautiful fins!). Eventually he had the whole tank to himself and flourished as a wonderful, friendly companion that greeted me each morning with a splash and a wiggle.
Although not much of a fan of the camera, with his color changes he became more and more awesome-looking over time. I’m glad I have these photos to remember him by, and I’m grateful for the support of the betta community and my friends on tumblr who have been with me through this entire journey, spanning over a year.
Swim in peace, friend. I’ll miss you so much.
Rest in peace, little dude…
Transformation Tuesday 2004-2014
This kid was so fucking cute in High school and grew into an Adonis.
Moral of the story- be nice to nerds and geeks because swanmode activates when you least expect it.
i’ve been wondering what this is from and it’s from this film called Kirikou et la Sorcière : Drawn from elements of West African folk tales, it depicts how a newborn boy, Kirikou, saves his village from the evil witch Karaba.
Let me tell you now that this is a very special and GORGEOUS animated movie, and the story is literally bewitching.
Watch it at the link above! Click on (CC) for the English Subs! One hour long full of beauty, tenderness, and adventure.

AH THIS WAS SO PRETTY, THANK YOU FOR SHARING
the screech is where i lose it

THIS ISNT FUNNY STOP
This isn’t funny at all, this poor child has been bullied past their breaking point.
What is worse is that /no one/ is helping him. Even if you are not actively participating in the abuse, you are just as guilty for remaining silent.
