Got bored one night and made this. Yay me!
About me: Super duper girly cis gal; intersectional feminist; ally of the "sit down and listen up" variety; Wiccan; equal parts optimistic about and fed up with humanity so I mostly just blog things I find funny. Or things that are Buffy. Occasionally other shows. Always dragons.

The Fairy of Eagle Nebula - ten light years tall and spewing radiation much hotter than common fire. The greater Eagle Nebula, M16, is actually a giant evaporating shell of gas and dust inside of which is a growing cavity filled with a spectacular stellar nursery currently forming an open cluster of stars.
It looks like Freya, or Athena.
