I’m very tired and stress and worded out, so this might not make much sense! Sorry in advance, anon!
Okay, so imagine this: everybody who died in 2009 comes back to life in typical zombie fashion. People in small town England form militia groups called the Human Volunteer Force (HVF) to fight said rabid, brain eating zombies.
Then, scientists discover a ‘cure’ - a daily shot called neurotriptyline that restores brain function.
So, all of these undead people, while still technically dead, are emotionally just as they were before they died. They spend time in a treatment centre in Norfolk to make sure they can integrate, and then they’re sent back to their families. These people are called Partially Deceased Syndrome (or PDS) sufferers.
The main character is Kieren Walker, a PDS sufferer from a tiny town in Northern England called Roarton. He’s a canonically bi/pan teen who suffered from depression while alive, culminating in his suicide in 2009 following the death of his boyfriend?? almost boyfriend??? Rick Macy. In The Flesh follows Kieren’s life as he returns to his family and Roarton, which is generally very anti-PDS (not only that, but his little sister Jem is a proud member of the HVF, nicknamed “The Rambo of Roarton”). It’s a really great show and tackles so many issues masterfully, all without becoming an ‘issues’ show, you know?????
I’m sorry, this probably didn’t make any sense. Like I said, I’m stressed and sleepy and I’ve been writing lots so my head is a mess ahah
you don’t go homo or bi or trans to hell

CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT POPE FRANCIS IS SO FRIKKIN CHILL THAT IF AN ALIEN WALKED IN TO THE VATICAN HE WOULDN’T EVEN FREAK OUT HE’D JUST BE LIKE “SUP DUDE LETS GO GET YA SOME JESUS”
Is that… is that even healthy?
There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.
I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.
nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.
In which case
(I like glowy things)
All the Derse dreamers! (Prospit coming in a second). Hopefully I didn’t mess anything up.
If you don’t know what’s happening in New Zealand right now, here’s a quick summary:
Investigative journalist Nicky Hager released a book called Dirty Politics. It’s based on a large number of emails and Facebook messages stolen by a hacker from a right-wing blogger called…
