Not everyone sees the same color when they stare at this spinning disk.
The gif is called, “Benham’s disk" "is named after the English toymaker Charles Benham, who in 1895 sold a top painted with the pattern shown. When the disk is spun, arcs of pale color, called Fechner colors or pattern-induced flicker colors (PIFCs), are visible at different places on the disk. Not everyone sees the same colors."
"The phenomenon originates from neural activity in the retina and spatial interactions in the primary visual cortex, which plays a role in encoding low-level image features, such as edges and spatiotemporal frequency components."
Fascinating how our brains work, I see a brown tan, what do you see? :D

I had an itch to draw the Dragon Age 2 crew, and after an unforgivable number of weeks and an almost admirable lack of artistic direction, here it is.

My brother baihu13 paired everybody off, so take it up with him.

This is really excellent! It moves. I can just see the movement. Anders and Hawke are waltzing, Sebastian and Aveline are doing the foxtrot, Dog is just leaping for joy, Varric/Merrill are sort of swing dancing and mostly laughing and flailing around a lot, and Fenris/Isabela are doing a tango. (ps. thank you for fenabela tango, that is exactly what I needed today)

all you need to know about the star trek fandom is that one time i made a joke post about butt dialing on command consoles on starfleet spaceships cause jim kirk likes to sit on everything that isn’t a chair and it generated a massive reblog chain with folks seriously discussing the future technology of command consoles and outlining the scientific developments necessary to prevent butt dialing from happening

About that Cullen hotness upgrade.

AU where Cullen really didn’t survive the massacre at Kinloch Hold, and instead was possessed by a Desire Demon.  Who promptly walked into a trap some mage had laid out, hit his head, and contracted a bad case of partial amnesia.

So now the Desire Demon has been walking around thinking that he is Cullen for like ten years but nope.  Not on.  Real Cullen’s repression puts some breaks on the Desire Demon’s true nature — sort of like a reverse Vengeance!Anders situation — but he still is what he is.

Suddenly getting promoted to Knight-Captain from random mook?  Subconscious desire mojo.  Everyone at the Gallows listening to him when he turns against Meredith?  Subconscious desire mojo.  Slowly changing his form to look like some kind of male model?  Subconscious desire mojo. 

And he has no idea

I’d read that fanfic.
