first of all, id like to properly congratule you. happy birthday!! hope today will go great for you. i wish you all the best <3
now, im not really able to do sth cool like olivia but i have prepared,,, top 5 creatures that i associate you with (ig it's kind of my thing to send you such asks, would be bad to ruin the tradition)
1. Cassiopea jellyfish
first of all, gotta start with the marine creatures. but also ive read that they're considered "ecosystem engineers" and that immediately made me think of you. you basically are the sole creater of the heaven ecosystem thing so it was an obvious choice. also they're quite unique, upside down jellies and they overall look cool.
in my opinion, they're the coolest seabirds to ever exist. they are also versatile, being able to both fly and swim well. and their beaks change colours with the season. you feel like the person who can do lots of great things, learn new skills easily but at the same time continue to develop your old skills. and you just feel like a sort of person to move to the seaside and live a mysterious life,,,
3. Pixie cup lichen
those look magical, so i immediately thought of you for some reason. i also think lichen is one of the coolest organisms to ever exist. two species in a mutualistic relationship,, just like you are able to be mutuals with many people and continue to live a balanced life, being a kind but self-respecting person.
4. Galloway breed cows
soft cows, nice to hug, very mellow. but could definitely defend themselves if needed!
5. Angel oak tree
self explanatory. a very old tree, around 500 years old i think. according to local legends the ghosts of the former slaves appear as angels around this tree. as far away as i am from supernatural at this point of my life, it's always nice to read your opinions and headcanons and (especially) rants (i love to read your rant posts, they provide a lot of insight and make me reconsider a lot of things). so i feel, just like this great tree, you're full of knowledge and strength to continue living.
again, i wish you to live your life the way you want to, get enough rest and good food and just enjoy all the great (and not really) shows that you find on your way. happy birthday, kats!!!
stop ittttt you're literally gonna make me cryyyyyy 😭
Getting marine + creatures asks from you is always an incredible experience,, I love hearing all your thoughts and learning new things about the world through your asks, but this?? Absolutely next-level.
I've been waiting for something Smart and Thoughtful that i can say in response to this to crop up in my head but I'm just. speechless. Like i have NO idea what i did to deserve a friend as amazing as you, Dante <3
