New necklaces from MDRF. The star half of a moon-and-stars friendship necklace set made out of a quarter (@hardrockhope has the other half) and a sword-wielding lion(ess) rampant from a Finnish coin. The magical purple lighting tells me someone up there approves. #100happydays #day54 #ladyknight #lionessrampant
You’re my King and I’m your Lionheart… Some readings are too spot on. #dailyreadings #tarot #lightvisions #kingandlionheart
Finally contributing to Inktober with a simple Junai. I was gonna do the grays with an ink wash but then I was a dork and used a brush pen that wasn’t waterproof, so I threw some quick grays on there in Photoshop instead.
caligula had anime eyes
wait romans painted their marble sculptures
it looks like a cheap theme park ride mascot
here’s a statue of Augustus
and here’s a reproduction of the statue with the colors restored
i honestly think that what we consider the height of sculpture in all of Western civilization being essentially the leftover templates of gaudy pieces of theme park shit to be evidence of the potential merit of found art

And you know what the funniest part is? The paint didn’t just wear off over time. A bunch of asshole British historians back in the Victorian era actually went around scrubbing the remaining paint off of Greek and Roman statues - often destroying the fine details of the carving in the process - because the bright colours didn’t fit the dignified image they wished to present of the the cultures they claimed to be heirs to. This process also removed visible evidence of the fact that at least some of the statues thus stripped of paint had originally depicted non-white individuals.
Whenever you look at a Roman statue with a bare marble face, you’re looking at the face of imperialist historical revisionism.
(The missing noses on a lot of Egyptian statues are a similar deal. It’s not that the ancient Egyptians made statues with strangely fragile noses. Many Victorian archaeologists had a habit of chipping the noses off of the statues they brought back, then claiming that they’d found them that way - because with the noses intact, it was too obvious that the statues were meant to depict individuals of black African descent.)

how: demons. why: demon portal. when: 5 pm demon time

Sometimes I think about Halef Seif and what a great friend and mentor he is to Alanna and I just get really emotional. He believed in her and supported her through losing Ishak and embracing her powers and rejecting Jon, and he doesn’t get nearly enough fandom love.
I am legitimately okay with this and suddenly wish there were no movies in the first place so that more posts like this could exist. So that more people would look at the basic context clues IN the books and imagine things like this.
Reminder that a lot of the firefighters the US government and media like to put on pedestals every year as symbolic heroes of 9/11 and points of patriotic pride are actually dying slow, awful deaths from the shit they inhaled that day and no one in the government or the murderously capitalist healthcare industry gives a shit because treating them would be expensive and they have minimal insurance and very little money. Some of them are in fact dead, and they’ve been swept under the carpet just as hard in death as they were in life. They still get paraded as a symbol, of course, but only so long as they stay a completely dehumanized one everyone can fistpump about. What I’m saying here is that the US government is fucking disgusting and being one of its celebrated heroes equates to being left to rot from the inside out by way of thanks if you’re not rich.
All I want is an episode of My Little Pony where the antagonist is male pony with a fedora cutie mark who goes around harassing everyone for pursuing their own interests instead of dating him and then the mane 6 use the elements of harmony to banish him to an actual place called the friendzone and where he is kept prisoner until he learns to appreciate having girls as friends and see them as actual people.
