Things that make me go “Aaaaaaaaaaooooooooo!” have one thing in common. They shine.
Here are a few of my favourite shiny things. Some of them may well be found in The Summer Sacrifice!
There is nothing like a clear night full of twinkling balls of plasma. Don’t get me started on shooting stars… They are the best kind of eye-candy. And I must, sometime soon, bear witness to the Northern Lights.
I am not a fan of insects, but I like glowing ones. (I’m terribly fickle.) I like fireflies and glow worms, and though mushrooms aren’t insects I love the glowing green mushroom that can be seen in the link below.
Some deep sea fish use bioluminescence as a form of night light. Their glow-in-the-dark skills can be used to attract, distract, communicate and defend. The fish in the vid below are out of this world. ( I think it’s quite clear glowing creatures make me happy!)
