So, let’s talk color wheel. On a whim, omori-fr and I decided to take a stab at the daunting task of revamping the Flight Rising color list and our results are above. It’s broken up here on tumblr and should be read in columns, or you can see the full image here.

We rearranged the colors into what we consider a more intuitive spectrum, adding colors where smoother transitions were needed (these new colors are marked with asterisks*) and subtracting a couple that didn’t fit anywhere. We also occasionally renamed a color when we thought the name would fit better somewhere else (these are marked with old name —> new name.)

This was a lot of fun, but also very difficult, so major props to the FR team for creating and arranging all these colors in the first place! So we’re clear, this is not a suggestion for rearranging the color wheel and we aren’t trying to start a discussion about the pros and cons actually changing the current set up. This was a fun re-imagining that we did to see what we could come up with. Now, if any of these did ever get implemented, we certainly wouldn’t complain. It’d sure mess up a lot of our established breeding pairs, but just look at some of those new colors ;)

Notes:

  • We tried not to remove too many colors, but in the end we did have to subtract tomato and goldenrod from the final cut. In every arrangement we tried, tomato ended up next to red (renamed scarlet) and we found that the colors were almost indistinguishable, so we omitted the less popular one. Apologies to goldenrod fans, but we found it sticking out everywhere we put it and because it’s one of the least liked colors, we decided it was safe to remove. The transition between lemon, spring, and (new) leaf went a lot better once goldenrod was out of the picture.
  • Colors were renamed only when we thought a different color would fit the name better (excluding rust, which we renamed tawny just because.) Leaf is actually leaf colored and sand is actually sand-colored in this version; the original colors are renamed lime and caramel respectively, because those names seem to fit better in our opinion.
  • Our version isn’t without flaws; there are some colors that still stick out, but we tried our best. We think we came up with a great solution to a lot of common complaints we’ve seen about the current color wheel and in the process we’ve added some amazing new colors that would look incredible on our dragons!
  • We’d love to see other people’s interpretations! Give us feedback on this one or make your own and tag it #frcolorwheel and maybe we can start a trend of users adding their own re-imaginings and ideas :)

JUST LOOK AT THE COLOURS

I’d be fine with this only if Goldenrod and Tomato weren’t removed. I’m a huge fan of both. Spring is not Goldenrod. D:

Oh my god please please please please

PEACH. <3

I really like both tomato and goldenrod…. whoops.

cocoa more like YES PLEASE

This would be absolutely perfect.. if not for the exclusion of Goldenrod. Goldenrod is the PERFECT Lightweaver primary color, despite what her profile says.

get yer mitts off my GOLDENROD

Still no yellow XD

They say that “Confronting triggers, not avoiding them, is the best way to overcome PTSD”. They point out that “exposure therapy” is the best treatment for trauma survivors, including rape victims. And that this involves reliving the trauma and exposing yourself to traumatic stimuli, exactly what trigger warnings are intended to prevent. All this is true. But I feel like they are missing a very important point.

YOU DO NOT GIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY TO PEOPLE WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT.

Psychotherapists treat arachnophobia with exposure therapy, too. They expose people first to cute, little spiders behind a glass cage. Then bigger spiders. Then they take them out of the cage. Finally, in a carefully controlled environment with their very supportive therapist standing by, they make people experience their worst fear, like having a big tarantula crawl all over them. It usually works pretty well.

Finding an arachnophobic person, and throwing a bucket full of tarantulas at them while shouting “I’M HELPING! I’M HELPING!” works less well.

And this seems to be the arachnophobe’s equivalent of the PTSD “advice” in the Pacific Standard. There are two problems with its approach. The first is that it avoids the carefully controlled, anxiety-minimizing setup of psychotherapy.

The second is that YOU DO NOT GIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY TO PEOPLE WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT.

This isn't FR, but this is super important for my friends and the animals in the area!

My sisters are putting together plans to open a non-kill open shelter for abandoned and stray animals that frequent the streets in our area. They need all the help they can get- I know this isn’t FR news, but I’d like to take this chance to appeal to you, my followers, and ask for your donations even if it’s just a dollar. They have already secured a location, but need funds to provide for the rent and the medical expenses involved with healing these animals. 

I can assure you, this is greatly needed and would make a big difference for the animals that need help in our area. 

I would be interested in helping if I could see a business plan or something with a bit more detail. :D

So, I posted it on facebook with this:

Okay,

I have to say, this article SERIOUSLY pissed me off. As I sit here in my high-waisted shorts feeling pretty darn good about my body and myslef while wearing them and read…

High waisted shorts usually have pockets and are therefore awesome.
