Imagine this: you are living in a discriminatory world full of people who do not understand you, and choose to judge you by your differences instead of getting to know you. If you are even the slightest bit different. The slightest distance from ordinary, you are judged. You do not get to fight for them to know you, because as soon as they place stereotypes on you. They decide who you are supposed to be.
Instinct for Survival in Lord of the Flies Surviving! It is the goal of every species, including humans. Some achieve it and others do not. It will depend on their organization as a species, their strength, environment, and survival skills. Surviving is defined as remaining alive under adverse or unusual circumstances.
We all have our differences, from food to language to beliefs. We all have troubles accepting differences, though, even the author of this herself. Not accepting differences could be the fall of humanity. We all could go against one another, destroying ourselves in the process. If we keep discriminating each other this is a possible effect of it.
Don’t we dislike it when someone is treated different than others? Or when someone different isn’t accepted? This has happened to many people either in school, jobs, and sports. Some are not accepted because of their skin color or maybe religion. For example in “My so called enemy”, the text provides strong information on people accepting other for who they are.

Octavia Butler is well known for having a variety of unconventional themes within her novels and short stories. Butler is one of the first female writers in the feminist science fiction genre, as well as, one of the few African-American women writers in the science fiction genre itself. Her novel Kindred published in 1979, is prime example of the unique and distinct perspective Butler brings to the genre; it is a blend of a neo-slave narrative and feminist science fiction. This blend of themes demonstrates the purpose of feminist science fiction itself: to reconstruct ideas of gender, sex, history, and ideas of the female body. Kindred is also used as a mechanism to defy and reconstruct the science fiction genre by using a female as a main character, redefining dystopias in the science fiction genre, and challenging masculinity of science fiction.
INTRODUCTION Organisms require the interaction with other biotic and abiotic factors for a harmonious existence in this nature and is crucial to its existence as well as the functioning of the whole ecosystem (Elton 1968).Depending upon the strength, duration, direction of their effects and mechanism of the interaction,these interactions can be further classified and it spans from species interacting only once in their lifetime (e.g. pollination) to those which completes their entire life in another (e.g. endosymbiosis). The interactions may be detrimental as consumption of the other as in the case of predation, herbivory, or cannibalism or may be advantageous to both as in mutualism. It is not mandatory that the effects of interactions are always direct. It can be also incidental through mediaries such as shared resources or common enemies.
My piece of art is depicting the theme of mutualistic relationships. It specifically features the relationships between rhinos and oxpeckers, zebras and oxpeakers, clownfish and anemones, crocodiles and plovers, sea turtles and yellow tangs, bees and flowers, and plants roots and mycorrhizal fungi. All of these pairs of organisms coexist in a way that benefits both participants. Some of the ways these species support each other is by cleaning away pests, providing the other with a meal or necessary nutrients, protecting against predators, and assisting in fertilization. These types of symbiotic relationships play a huge role in balancing ecosystems and increasing biodiversity.
This literary analysis will be of Octavia Butler’s Fledgling, exploring the role of lead character, Shori Matthews, who is both the narrator and protagonist of this captivating novel.
