Honestly one of the most interesting and awesome things I have ever seen in my life. When a community stands together, the FULL community stands together. God Bless Ferguson.

Holy shit the solidarity

This is totally true.  Right now my mom assumes that everyone in Ferguson is just really pissed off and looting everything and NOT that it was mostly because of police brutality.  She also doesn’t know about how there are in fact a LOT of people there that are trying to prevent stores from being looted, but does the news and media tell us this?  Nope.  So there are times my mom is surprised that I found out a lot more about news worthy topics before she does and I don’t watch the news…

Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.

Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.

I’m going to keep reblogging this until it reaches its goal

120k signatures are still needed. PLEASE take the time to sign this.

Hiccup looked back to Jack with a worried expression. He rested his hand gently on his chitin-plated side and said, 

"You’re still a Champion, Jack." Hiccup stood up to kiss Jack’s cheek and spoke into his ear, "Your heart is still pure, no matter what you might look like." 

Still, he knew Jack was right. Hiccup needed to do this on his own. Too many people grouped together would be a dead giveaway in a stealth mission like this.Hiccup kissed Jack again and turned to face Astrid. 

"When do we leave?" He asked seriously. 

Astrid didn’t know what to think. Hiccup was the last person she’d have picked as a battle brother back on Berk, but something changed in him since the last time Astrid saw him. Instead of the weak, timid boy who was desperate to fight dragons and prove himself worthy Astrid knew, Hiccup stood tall and strong like a protective wall surrounding his family. 

Hiccup was stronger now. He would do just fine. 

"Well if we’re going to invade a demon stronghold, we should probably get some supplies. Hiccup, do you have any medicinal herbs at your camp? We’re going to need them." Astrid started planning the raid with swift efficiency. 

Jack smiled down at Hiccup, his heart doing a few leaps when the champion kissed him.  It seemed his mate knew exactly what to say to make the drider happy, whether or not the drider believed him or not remained to be seen.  Not that Jack didn’t believe him or not, it was just hard for him to accept that he was still better than many others despite what has happened to him and what he did.

"Well, we were just heading back to Hiccup’s camp to introduce the kids to his friends there," Jack mentioned as he stood up, some of his children holding on to stay on his back while others climbed down to be with their mother.  "I’m sure you have enough supplies there for the journey there and back, right babe?"

Hiccup nodded enthusiastically. 

"Yes! And I’m sure Rathazul will be able to make some better armor for the both of us now that Jack’s here!" Hiccup suggested, "He said he could make armor out of Tough Spider Silk if I had enough of it. Think you could lend me your spinneret, Jack?"

Astrid gave Hiccup a sidelong look and wondered just what sort of friends he associated with now. 

"Anything for you, babe," Jack said as he kissed Hiccup on the cheek again.

Once Jack and Hiccup calmed the children down enough for the parents and Astrid to continue onward they soon left and made their way to Hiccup’s camp.

Not long after they made it to Hiccup’s camp and Hiccup again went and introduced Astrid to his companions.  Isabella was excited to meet another one of Hiccup’s friends and could not stop aw-ing over the babies who - much like before - were weary of the towering milk maid, but they warmed up to her quickly.  Jojo was more trusting of Astrid than he was of Jack - most likely because she was still human and had not been tainted yet - and Rathazul only grumbled in annoyance as more baby driders and half driders crowded around him.  Again Aarian was in a deep sleep when the champions arrived but he was doing a lot better recently as stated by Isabella.

"My gods…" Astrid whispered in hushed awe, "…So there is hope for this world, just like Marae said!” 

Hiccup looked at her oddly. He never took Astrid for the praying type. Especially not the kind who think the gods answer back

"What do you mean ‘Marae said?’" He asked.

"I mean Marae said. She has an island out in the middle of the lake inaccessible to anyone with taint. I found it by accident one day, and she told me about the factory up in the mountains that was the cause of most of the taint plaguing the world. She said if I could somehow shut down the factory, we might actually stand a chance!” Astrid explained, “I know, I didn’t really believe it, either. But she exists, Hiccup! I’ve seen her!” 

Hiccup didn’t know what to think. It was just so crazy to think that a goddess lives in the middle of a lake and talked to a mortal about saving the world. It was something you only heard about in the Eddas! But at the same time, it was Astrid-no-bullshit-Hofferson telling him. Astrid never lied about anything. Her reputation for her brutal honesty preceded her well before she came of age. She wouldn’t make something like this up. 

"So where is this factory again?" Hiccup finally asked, deciding to trust Astrid’s judgement. 

Jack looked up at Astrid in confusion when she brought up the goddess Marae.  Jack had heard of the elusive goddess before from Kai and others but never tried to look for her.  Hearing that she had an island out on the lake made sense as to why Jack never found her: Jack was afraid of water and the lake brought up bad memories about how he almost drowned in a lake when he was younger.  That and he couldn’t swim.

When Astrid mentioned a factory up in the mountains, Jack lit up as he remembered something.  ”Wait, I’ve heard of the factory,” Jack exclaimed, causing the two champions to look over at him.  ”A week ago I came across some minotaurs in my territory.  They were talking about a factory up in the mountains, and how they were so far from their normal prowling area because they were looking for something for someone they called the Overseer.  I didn’t wait to hear what it was they were looking for, though.”

"Yes! That’s the one!" Astrid affirmed, "Marae said it was the cause of the pollution tainting the lake water and making her weak. We don’t have much time, though. Marae also said she was almost out of power. As she was speaking to me, she was fighting off a need to breed with me…" Astrid shuddered at the thought. 

Hiccup looked from Jack, to Astrid, then furrowed his brow in thought. He looked around at all of his children who were blinking owlishly back at him as if waiting for him to respond. Hiccup thought of Kai and how the factory might be partly responsible for how he was now. Hiccup couldn’t stand by and do nothing now that he knew the cause of Mareth’s corruption. Hiccup looked up at them with resolve burning in his eyes as he asked, 

"What can I do?" 

He was willing to fight with Astrid. He wanted to live in a world that was safe for his children to grow up and have fun without a lingering fear of monsters hiding in the shadows. Hiccup was weak as a Viking, but as a mother, he would do anything to keep his children safe. Even if it meant facing down Lethice herself. 

Jack looked over at Hiccup and smiled proudly at his mate.  He could tell that Hiccup was determined to do his job not only as a champion but also as a mother as his mate looked down at their children who all watched him earnestly.  Jack then looked over at Astrid.

"You two are the champions here.  Do what you think is right.  I was a champion myself, but I’ve failed in that…"  The drider then looked down at his tainted body.  While he was not corrupted like many of the other residents of this world he knew nothing could go right if Jack left the safety of the forest to try and save a goddess he never met.

Hiccup looked back to Jack with a worried expression. He rested his hand gently on his chitin-plated side and said, 

"You’re still a Champion, Jack." Hiccup stood up to kiss Jack’s cheek and spoke into his ear, "Your heart is still pure, no matter what you might look like."
