This is my Sobek part 1: Feraligatr and Lugia

The Water type crocodile starter pokémon, Feraligatr, and the Psychic/Flying (???) type legendary God of the Seas (psychic/flying???) pokémon Lugia. (Srsly why is Lugia not a Water type?)

The Water type crocodilian starter Pokémon, Feraligatr; and the Psychic/Flying (???) type legendary God of the Seas (o.O???) Pokémon Lugia (why are you not a Water type? WHY?). …Gods, they even have a similar body shape wtf. o.O?

So you will forgive me if I get a bit tl;dr, and veer off into UPG territory, as well as whatever tangents are needed to explain all this fully, but I think it’s time I finally talked about this image, and why it is my Isis. Nothing has ever come close to being my Isis than this image of Her. It’s not traditional, it’s video game art, but this is what She means to me. When I think about Isis, this is who I see. Perhaps this isn’t the same for everyone else, but this is my Isis. Let me introduce you to Her.
