Denarius of Trajan from 112-117 CE. Emperor Trajan is the only Roman Emperor to conquer Southern Mesopotamia and Babylonia and turn them into Roman provinces. Upon Trajan’s death, his successor Emperor Hadrian abandoned the Roman Province of Mesopotamia. Harvard Art Museums, Cambridge, MA.
Summary: You’re kidnapped by an unsub, but dying isn’t what you’re afraid of. All you’re worried about is leaving Spencer alone.
Warning: graphic depictions of violence, angst
It wasn’t dying you were afraid of. It was leaving Spencer alone. The thought terrified you more than any horrific end you could possibly meet in your line of work. Spencer was your everything, your sun and moon, the light of your life. You knew he wouldn’t be able to live with himself without you. He’d lost too much already, losing you would be a final blow you knew he couldn’t take. You’d come close in the past. A bomb threat, a car accident while in pursuit, physical threats from unsubs here and there. But this was different. You knew you weren’t making it out of this alive.
So imagine: Jack and Bitty on a date at a museum. They go to the Harvard Natural History Museum one day after visiting Shitty and his law school bros. Jack spends hours walking through the exhibits, geeking out about all the history and nature. He rambles on and on to Bitty about the historical time periods and archaeology behind the artifacts.
Bitty: Jack I don’t think I’ve ever seen you talk this much
Jack: Haha yeah normally you’re the one who can’t stop talking
Bitty: One more chirp from you and I’m leaving you here with the dinosaurs
He also takes a million artsy photos of the Glass Flowers. Bitty has heart eyes the entire time and loves the fact that his boyfriend is a huge nerd.
I went to Boston this weekend to visit my best friend @yogalady and while I was there I took the opportunity to have my MIND BLOWN by the Blaschka Glass Flowers at the Harvard Museum of Natural History.
ALL OF THESE FLOWERS ARE 100% GLASS!!!
Produced on a foot bellow powered Bunsen burner in the 1870’s by just two incredible flame-workers!
They are so intricate, realistic and perfect I thought my little glass worker heart was going to explode! As a nature inspired flame-worker it felt practically a like a religious pilgrimage. I still can’t even believe my eyes just looking at the pictures I took! It was a fantastic highlight to an all around perfect trip!
Prepare to be spammed by more pictures of awesome things in Boston!
