Despite the gag, Ariana’s eyes flashed bright in a glare as she growled at the blackhole.

Ariana merely gave him an unamused expression. Was he ready for her smart mouth afterwards?

"Yes, I think I will. You’re predictable with your retorts, but at least it entertains up to a point."

A simple gesture, accompanied by a smirk, evaporated the gag.

"Ahh" Ariana gasped as her mouth was free, smacking her lips and making a face. She then turned her attention (and glare) to Nero.

"Okay what now?"

Galaxies

This new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows a whole host of colourful and differently shaped galaxies; some bright and nearby, some fuzzy, and some so far from us they appear as small specks in the background sky.

 The most prominent characters are the two galaxies on the left — 2MASX J16133219+5103436 at the bottom, and its blue-tinted companion SDSS J161330.18+510335 at the top. The latter is slightly closer to us than its partner, but the two are still near enough to one another to interact. Together, the two make up a galactic pair named Zw I 136.

 Both galaxies in this pair have disturbed shapes and extended soft halos. They don’t seem to conform to our view of a “typical” galaxy — unlike the third bright object in this frame, a side-on spiral seen towards the right of the image.

 Astronomers classify galaxies according to their appearance and their shape. The most famous classification scheme is known as the Hubble sequence, devised by its namesake Edwin Hubble. One of the great questions in galaxy evolution is how interactions between galaxies trigger waves of star formation, and why these stars then abruptly stop forming. Interacting pairs like this one present astronomers with perfect opportunities to investigate this. A version of this image was entered into the Hubble’s Hidden Treasures image processing competition by contestant Judy Schmidt.

Norse Gods and Goddesses and the Asatru

paganconnection:

Who are the Norse Gods and Goddesses and Who worships them?

 Asatru is the modern re-birth of the old Norse beliefs. The Old Norse culture is the ancestors of the Norwegians, Danes, Swedes, the Icelanders, and probably a few other peoples in that general area. They follow the Norse Pantheon, See below for a list of individual Gods and Goddesses and their beliefs. The revival of Asatru began in 1973 by Gladsheim. It is interesting to note that Asatru is one of two recognized faiths in Iceland, with the other one being the Lutheran Church.

I did not create this list. The list is from a wiccan book. I am sorry if it has offended anyone by leaving things out or adding things that should not belong. I just thought it was a really cool idea. I do not personally worship the Norse Deities.

THAT Got her to raise an eyebrow and stare at him like he had grown a second head.
Soooo he was….protecting her? By Kidnapping her?
…I’m sorry What?!

"Such a baffled expression, little lamb. Did you think I would let just anyone get at you?"

Really, her single-mindedness was amusing. It was obvious to anyone who cared to think of things a little that he wouldn’t let someone who was supposed to not have been around for countless eons set its eyes on what was his.

"You look like you have something on your mind. Should I take off the gag now that I’ve told you the important bits?"

Ariana merely gave him an unamused expression. Was he ready for her smart mouth afterwards?
