Can we talk about American Gods? We really have a dark-skin black woman playing a Biblical Queen and a Love Goddess. We have Black People portraying Egyptian Gods. The lead of the show is black. They have West African Gods being portrayed on mainstream media. Seeing black people’s mythology and history represented on screen by black actors is a big thing. People aren’t even aware of nor regard the several figures in Abrahamic religions being African. .
I drew this dumb little comic almost two years ago when I first joined the AC team at Ubisoft. It has nothing to do with the game other than being related to Ancient Egypt, and was drawn fun and sent around the office for shits and giggles.
I wish I could say the joke was my own. Alas, I aped it from an old computer game some Aussies in the crowd may know: Skippy and the Curse of the Temple of Ock.
Why Rick Riordan fans are some of the best fans you will meet
-They call the author “Uncle Rick”
-The movies are hated unanimously
-Love diverse characters
-Are all mostly teen girls despite the books being aimed at boys
-Cute OTPs and ships
-Small but welcoming (so nice that they are literally hufflepuffs of fandoms)
This is a Muslim home. Why does Anubis hold out his hand for me?
It is my thanks. You were once a girl with your own tita who taught you the ways of Egypt old. Of when the Nile was full and flooded. She told you stories of the wolf and the jackal, the red wind and of the child of Bast.
