FUN FACT: These eggs are evil. Octopus babies are evil. Let me tell you why. The octopus mother lays her eggs in a cave roof and spends 6 months guarding them from potential predators and swaying the eggs with her tentacle so they get oxygen. This means she doesn’t eat or sleep until they hatch. When the octopus babies hatch, she dies from fatigue and starvation. THEN THEY FUCKING EAT HER. THEY EAT THEIR MOTHER WHO DIED BECAUSE SHE WAS LOOKING AFTER THEM. THEY. EAT. HER.
I’ve just noticed that I’ve never posted any Inaisce here.
In the beginning, The Reliquatory was more heavily rooted in Dolly Kei, so maybe it didn’t feel quite right at the time. But now, never having shared it feels like a gross misdemeanor.
This is one of my favorite collections of all time.
