ships in which someone speaks English as a second language (◡‿◡✿)

ships where that someone slips into foreign swearing when upset (◕‿◕✿)

ships where that someone moans out foreign endearments when they’re with their lovers (ʘ‿ʘ✿)

SHIPS WITH BILINGUAL LOVERS (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧*:・゚✧

this has crossed my dash so many times today, and all I can think (beyond Vanya getting all hot and bothered in Russian with Kaidan) is this:

Shatterstar doing this in cadre, only cadre is a total garbage language for this kind of thing, and it all translates to “YES IMPALE ME WITH YOUR MEAT SWORD” and “OIL ME UP FLESHBAG” and Ric is trying SO SO SO hard to not laugh because ‘Star’s dead serious and he doesn’t want to sleep on the couch, and if Longshot’s within earshot,  he’s the literal embodiment of ROFL.

Read original post- immediately think of Ric and Shatterstar.Read subsequent post- nearly pee myself.

THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN.

YESSS THIS
but no honestly Crystal Reed is THE Kate Bishop. And not just because she played a badass archer girl. (Allison fanclub 5ever tho) BUT. SHE LOOKS SO MUCH LIKE KATE. Especially from the Hawkeye comics (but I’d say she reminds me of YAv1 Kate, too).
And she’s a great actress too. She’d slay that role.
I just. I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT THIS OKAY.

Al Jazulî, Dalâ’il al-Khayrât (The Signs of Virtues)Morocco, 1798
Ink on paper, binding and case in leather; silk brocade on the case flap
Edited by a Moroccan sufi, this prayer book is very popular among Sunni Muslims. In North African tradition, copies of this work, a double page illustrating two different views of Medina, as one finds in Ottoman copies, next to a representation of the mosque at Medina, a representation of the haram of Mecca, which is not mentioned in the text.
Artifact and text from L’Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris. Translation and any errors, my own.

the problem with tumblr is that you arrive all fresh and innocent with your otps and your canon-compliant headcanons, but you’re on here long enough and one day you realize its 1 am and all your otps have turned into threesomes and you’re trying to figure out how they could conceivably all become art thieves and/or space pirates.

And when you choose a life partner, you’re choosing a lot of things, including your parenting partner and someone who will deeply influence your children, your eating companion for about 20,000 meals, your travel companion for about 100 vacations, your primary leisure time and retirement friend, your career therapist, and someone whose day you’ll hear about 18,000 times.

Intense shit.

medievalpoc:

^ This is the British Library Digitized Manuscripts Site.

A lot of people have asked about my process doing research for medievalpoc. I use a lot of resources and tools that are readily available for anyone to use, and this is one of them. There are thousands of manuscripts available to just page through and zoom in on, as if you had the book right in front of you.

If the idea of searching through endless lists of titles and numbers is daunting to you, the Digitized Medieval Manuscripts Collection has a blog.

The blog makes topical posts with images of the manuscripts according to those topics, and then links to the full manuscripts, so you can go looking at them yourself:

Like so:

You can learn what the heck a Leucrota is supposed to be here.

They also have a Twitter.

One of the best things about medievalpoc is that I get to see people get excited about art and history, and if you decide you’d like to go exploring, this is a great place to do that. I think the manuscript viewer is relatively user-friendly, and there’s a ton of information about the histories of the manuscripts themselves there, too.
