July 29th is International Tiger Day! Rapidly losing natural habitats, tigers face a precarious future. International Tiger Day was initiated to raise awareness about tiger conservation and the need for global responses to protecting natural habitats of these big kittehs.
The image is from The Wonders of the Animal Kingdom (1830) by Robert Huish, who, incidentally, was not very highly regarded in his time. In a stinging review of his book, The Late Voyage of Captain Sir John Ross, R.N. to the Arctic Regions…, the Quarterly Review (July 1835), called him “one of those industrious but unscrupulous scribblers know as booksellers’ hacks.” Unscrupulous as he may be, we still think the illustrations in the Wonders of the Animal Kingdom are worth perusing, even if the first few lines of the introduction desperately need an editor.
Thank you for your request ! :) (kilt is like this…?)
The lack of tattoos on my body is highly upsetting.

Imagine tho Jim lying back against Sebastian in the bath, Seb stroking his hair till he falls asleep *u*
Jim finding out that Sherlock’s mother wrote the Dynamics of Combustion and fangirling when he meets her.
Teddy Lupin casting a patronus and everyone starts freaking out bc hOLY SHIT IS THAT A WEREWOLF
but the only thing Teddy feels is the comfort of knowing that his father is still there, protecting him
You stupid, beautiful
I always imagine Seb to be like a grumpy old man stuck in a hot-ass body most of the time. Like he hardly outwardly complains (unless Jim is taking the piss with his orders, which is often) but he just makes annoyed little “ugh” and “humpf” and sighing noises.
"Sebastian fetch my black Louis Vuitton shoes"
"ugh fine, boss."
"Seb you stink of blood, go take a shower"
