Please consider emailing Time magazine at feedback@time.com to get them to reconsider not putting Laverne Cox on their list. She overwhelmingly got voted in at 91.5%, but was not put on there. Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood had 25% of the vote and was put on there.
The erasure of trans women, and women of color needs to stop. Ms. Cox does nothing but good work.

leaving Laverne Cox off of the Time top 100 despite the overwhelming support she received is an act of violence and erasure towards trans women

Sea Slicks
Whenever there is an oil spill in the world’s oceans, a sea slick is “born”. Countless animals lose their lives to the thick, clinging clutches of oil, dying miserable, wretchedly drawn-out deaths. Sea slicks are born of the lost souls of those animals and the sludge that bound and choked the life from them. As such, sea slicks are always referred to as “they” and “them” rather than “it”, and it’s said that if you chance upon a sea slick near the surface, their soft, melancholy vocalisations carry the haunting remnants of sea birds and the whispers of shoals of fish.
Despite their fearsome appearances, they are very much docile creatures, preferring to near-constantly swim through the depths and the quiet of the sea they were robbed from. Sea slicks are amortal, being unable to die, as they were never truly what we would call “alive” to begin with. Over time, however, sea slicks do disintegrate, usually over the span of several years, losing pieces of semi-sentient oil to the surface waters.
Ambitious wixes track sea slicks to gather these pieces, as they make especially valuable, durable invisibility cloaks capable of protecting wearers from even the deadliest of spells.

I love this! Modern, industrial fantasy creatures. Wow, so cool!

my headcanon is that dwarves are very demonstrative and affectionate with their partners, not just physically, but verbally, to the point that it’s embarrassing for bilbo to walk into the throne room, because thorin would purposefully mortify him by effusively announcing all of bilbo’s titles:

"AH, HERE IS BILBO BAGGINS, MY CONSORT—"

and bilbo’s like yep that’s me

"—MY BURGLAR, MY HALFLING, MY BELOVED HUSBAND—"

yes thorin that’s very nice can i just sit down

"—GHIVASHEL, ÂZYUNGÂL, MY HEART, MY SOUL, MY ONE—"

laying it on a bit thick today aren’t we dear

"—LUCKWEARER, RINGWINNER, SPIDER’S BANE, RIDDLER OF DRAGONS, HE-THAT-WALKS-THROUGH-THE-AIR-UNSEEN—"

thorin please shut up you did this not an hour ago as well

"—AND JUST GENERALLY A NICE PERSON ALL ROUND, REALLY."
