Verdigris is a blue-green pigment that has been used since antiquity, whose name derives from an Old French phrase meaning “green of Greece.” Though it was the most vibrant green pigment available for much of history, it had an unstable color prone to changing over time, making it tricky to work with. It ultimately fell out of favor in the 19th century as newer, more stable greens became available.
Didn’t know I needed Georges Washington de Lafayette and Phillip until now. Georges was sent to America during the rein of terror and visited the Hamilton’s house often. He and Phillip were around the same age, so its plausible
Alfred and Ludwig as soldiers on opposite sides and they meet each other while stranded, so they decide to work together to find their way back to their units and the whole entire time they’re bickering, saving each others’ ass, and falling in love. They make promises that when the war is over, they’ll meet up again, maybe spend their lives together, maybe adopt a child. Whether one of them dies during the war is up to you.
Do you know the creator of Princess Tutu is Ikuko Itoh? She is known as a character designer and best animation director of Sailor Moon. Especially the chief animator for the S, Supers, its openings and most transformations/attacks. Also, her art style is beautiful and noticeable without a doubt, such as in merch, DVD covers, and many iconic episodes like the final S battle and the one with the first appearance of Super Sailor Moon transformation with Holy Grail! <3 She knows how to make us cry!
I am so glad to hear this! I generally have a hard time telling the difference between various SM animators, but not with Ikuko Itoh, because this shit is HISTORIC
I’m reading Coriolanus and, like, what’s Shakespeare’s beef with guys named Brutus? He’s got two dudes named Brutus who overthrow “ambitious” Romans. This is not about historical accuracy. Shakespeare regularly did not give a shit about historical accuracy. Julius Caesar had a goddamn clock. Some Italian boy named Brutus pissed him off and he was like, “you know what’s a good name for the guy who’s gonna start a coup? Brutus.”
Mary mourned her husband’s death with deep and unaffected grief. She invented a device and motto for a seal, appropriate to the occasion: it was a figure of the liquorice-tree, every part of which is useless except the root, which, of course, lies beneath the surface of the earth. Underneath was the inscription, in Latin, Dulce meum terra tegit, which translates into “The earth covers my sweet one” or “The earth hides my treasure”.
