The Mystical World Of Mushrooms Captured In Photos

Most people consider mushrooms to be the small, ugly cousins of the plant kingdom, but theirs is  surprisingly beautiful and wonderful world waiting to be explored. These beautiful mushrooms, captured by enthusiastic nature photographers, are a far cry from the ones you find in the woods or your local grocery store.

Most mushrooms, as we know them, are actually just the reproductive structure of the fungus they belong to – their fungal networks expand far further underground, and some fungi don’t even sprout the sort of mushrooms that we’re used to seeing. In fact, depending on your definition of “organism,” the largest living organism in the world is a fungus – there’s a honey mushroom colony in Oregon that occupies about 2,000 acres of land!

daily reminder that minerva mcgonagall is metal as fuck

reminder she took 3 stunning spells directly to the chest and after being taken to st mungos brushed it off like nothing

Why McGonagall is the shit

This is why I will never accept that Harry didn’t name ALL OF HIS CHILDREN afterthis woman. He loved her so much.

ahh! my favorite one is missing. Paraphrased. Something about detention agian, McGonagall “Have a biscuit, Potter.” Harry: “What the literal fuck.”

The 5th book is my favourite because of how amazingly it encompasses McGonagall’s beauty.

I'm sorry but elves just look wrong as POC, they lose so much of their ethereal beauty and the purity that they represent.

"Im sorry but black people cant be elves because black people arent beautiful or good"

Please tell me this anon is fucking joking.

Poc can’t be pure apparently

This is something a friend of mine actually said to my face while I was talking about diversity in books the other day. I really don’t understand how people could think it’s strange for a fictional mythical creature to have darker skin. If it’s about staying close to the original, then why do they think it’s fine for vampires to walk out in the sun? Why do they use Tolkien as a source instead of the original elves? And if it’s about beauty and purity… how can they not see how racist they are? How blinded can they be by their own hateful delusions? 

I hope the anon trips and falls into a pile of wet shit for their disgusting, racist delusions

like seriously I don’t even have a longwinded educational comeback for that they’re just disgusting fucking hell ew anon I wish upon you allergies to everything and a rash in your privates 

And I hope you know how ugly and impure and dirty you are

because ew

I wish your kind didn’t exist, anon, but here we are

I feel dirty just looking at your comment

My skin is crawling

Bask in the apparent “impurity” of my PoC elves you shitstain-anon

Impure and “unethereal” my ass

elves are elves, people are people, “pure white skin” or not. in fact, we need more dark skinned elves to add to this - i suggest others add their own art too. 

UGH. I love Tolkien’s works but I HATE when people cite his stuff as law for building mythical worlds. Before Tolkien, Elves were thought of like the house-elves in Harry Potter. Small, diminutive, often grotesque-looking little creatures who fixed shoes n shit. And in Norse mythology elves are like REALLY CREEPY and promiscuous.. Tolkien changed them to be the white-supremacy Valar shitbags they are in LOTR/The Hobbit.The Silmarillion.

Also, elves in The Elder scrolls come in literally every color including fucking blue, and they’re all banana sammich awesome, m’kay?
