Seriously, though this is kind of a big deal. Know that big problem we have? You know, the one involving a crapload of used plastic hanging around in landfills with nowhere to biodegrade for a couple million years? Well, Jonathan Russell might’ve solved that problem. See, Russell and his fellow Yale students went to Ecuador, where they found a new kind of fungus they’re calling Pestalotiopsis microspora. Big deal, you’re thinking. Anyone can find fungus anywhere! Well, something his fellow students found out after the fact is that this fungus can live on a diet of polyurethane alone — and even crazier, it doesn’t even need air to do so! In other words, we could potentially put it at the bottom of a landfill and cover it with plastic, and it would do the rest of the work. This might be game-changing if it works as advertised.

Big shout out to nature for saving our asses for the billionth time
So, I never did an official “Hi, I’m Laurel and I’m new to the Rumbelle fandom” thing. Instead, I just kind of quietly eased my way in at the beginning of the summer, not really interacting with people and took to reading a ton of lovely fanfic to pass the time. I see more and more people making posts introducing themselves to this awesome fandom and I just though I should do so too :-)
*ears perk up*
halloween is soon
Drag it now
Or on mobile tap it
"It’s your papa again, son.
Do you remember those flowers you used to pick, the ones by the stream? Every week, you came in with a bundle of those flowers for me, clenched in your dirty little fist. I always put them by the window so that I could see them while I was working at the wheel, and you always brought fresh ones when they began to wilt.
I found some of them at the house Belle and I moved into this week. There’s a great thatch of them just outside the kitchen window.
I miss you, Bae. I love you.”
*crys* this is just to painful.. Poor woobies. I need Neal back

Used a lot of gold and blue in this one, because you know, rumbelle colours and stuff. Hope you all had fun watching Once Upon A Time yesterday!
