Currently reading The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
If someones gets Blood Of Olympus early, please, please, please, keep the things you read in the book to yourself until the book gets officially released, if you want to rant about something please save it as a draft until October 7, please don’t post anything
and even after the book is released please use “read more” and tags for a while please
Before J.K. Rowling came out with the full Black Family Tree, I always pictured Sirius as being half Asian* (obviously on his mom’s side). But then, obviously my mental image of Sirius had to change.
*I think it was because of the chapter head illustrations in the books…

Gross insect fact o’ the day: the Cicada-killer wasp
A female flies out and inspects trees until she finds a cicada. After she stings it, the cicada becomes paralyzed within one minute. The wasp then grasps the base of the wings of the cicada with her middle legs, and flies with the cicada in an upside-down position back to her burrow. ….
The cicada killer’s venom preserves the cicada, which will live in a paralyzed state twice as long as an unstung, unfed cicada. Within two weeks the [wasp] larvae have eaten the paralyzed cicadas and grown into prepupae, the form in which they will spend the winter.
