The Amazing Colored Petrified Forest
A sun-swept corner of the Painted Desert in Arizona is home to the Petrified Forest National Park which draws more than 600,000 visitors each year. While most come to see one of the world’s largest concentrations of brilliantly colored petrified wood, many leave having glimpsed something more. The current 346 square miles of Petrified Forest open a window on an environment more than 200 million years old, one radically different from today’s grassland.
Over time, trees died or perhaps were knocked over by flood waters or wind. Rivers carried the trees into the lowlands, breaking off branches, bark, and small roots along the way. Some trees were deposited on the flood plain adjacent to the rivers and others were buried in the stream channels. Most of the trees decomposed and disappeared. But a few trees were petrified, becoming the beautiful fossilized logs we see today.
and then we get naked and sit on big boulders in the middle of rivers singing and seducing cute fishermen/women/people. yessss give me all of this and morrrrre
yes, let’s run off and be forest witches.
or faeries, i got confused there toward the end.
actually, let’s just be both. summon demons by moonlight, protect the woods by daylight
can i come with you? we can dip our toes in creeks and streams and lay under massive trees eating pomegranates and build a fire and dance under the stars like wild bohemian queens dancing rituals around pyre to summon dark spirits
let’s do. we should bring geodes and lesser gems for divination and weave crowns of rose stems to adorn each other. when we get hungry you could teach me to kill and dress down small woodland creatures and we could sleep on grass and dead leaves with only the stars for a blanket.
so we thought the people at marvel had just drawn zayn as a random comic-book character
but actually they’ve done more than that
“The guy from that boyband One Direction’s name is Zayn Malik. If you look him up on google you can find a bunch of images of him. I was picturing Robbie as a beefier version of him. Physically strong, with a quiet, troubled expression, […] kind of boyish. Just my initial idea. Opinions and suggestions greatly welcome, as always. I’ll send you the arc breakdowns in my next e-mail.”
so they didn’t just draw zayn, they used him as a reference to CREATE an ACTUAL comic-book character with a name, a personality and an arc
and he’s the protagonist of AN ACTUAL COMIC SERIES
just think of how HAPPY this must have made zayn
i feel like i should be walking barefoot through the woods in a billowy dress
fleet foxes: music for the sad white people who voluntarily live in isolated mountain cabins
