There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.
I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.
nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.
In which case
(I like glowy things)
Someone in the comments did make a good point about this possibly having effects on animals and predation - illuminating hiding spots, or interfering with light-sensitive eyes, etc. That said, in cities a lot of that already happens with street lamps anyway, and only the most adaptable species remain; bringing in more trees would probably do more environmental good than not. It’s definitely worth exploring.
Teen Wolf AU: When Satomi visits Beacon Hills to forge an alliance between her pack and Derek’s, Derek fears that she will propose to strengthen the bond by having him marry one of her daughters. The obvious solution to prevent this from happening is pretending to date someone else. Stiles, being the only single member of his pack, is the obvious choice. It has nothing at all to do with Derek secretly being hopelessly in love with him anyway. Right?
(Also Derek is a dumbass for thinking that Stiles isn’t pining for him, Scott is concerned for his best friend’s well-being, and Satomi is an all-around badass who totally sees through their bluff - also, seriously Derek, arranged marriages are so last centurywhy the fuck did you even think she’s consider that option - but drops enough hints for Derek to finally act on his feelings so that everyone goes home happy.)
