It’s not enough to have the standard Torchwood electronics label and bar code down by the buttons; they also had to tape a little strip of paper with the full name to the TOP of the printer, just in case you forgot what the hexagon T logo stood for.
a couple of paintings i did based on a post by @kellythepitiablefangirl about an AU where bella meets edward in 1918. i saw that there was some other fanart of it and thought i’d join in <33 i hope you guys like it! ^^
Didyme was both a co–founder and leader of the Volturi, and was a crucial part of the coven for many years. She was in charge for a while of the recruitment process, and because of her power was important of gaining numbers and keeping them attached to the Volturi.
(On a side note: Didyme was at first very ambitious about the Volturi. She was very eager about the concept of having a lot of power to her name, but it was only after they gained recognition and Aro started to take over the reigns with Caius and Sulpicia as the head figures that she started to grow disinterested, and eventually lead to her want for departure and independence.)
Ironically not as happy as people intemperate her because of her power. Her power isn’t actually an indication of her personality, nor does it affect her personally. Actually because of her power, the constant happiness she generated from those around her but never got to feel, had the opposite affect on her, and there were moments that were very depressing to her because of it.
Only a half sister to Aro. I referenced that fact once in this timeline I drew up, but Aro’s parents had five other children not including himself, three before him and two after, but after having his first sister his mother became ill and died, and Aro’s father remarried, and to that wife only had one child, Didyme. At that point Aro was already an adult, so they never grew up together, and only really met around the time she was turned.
angels and deities can present themselves to humans however they like. there is no way to know whether someone is not only an angel/deity, but one that isn’t restricted to the confines of human body. that’s the entire point. someone’s true nature isn’t shown when speaking to a higher power; it is shown when interacting with fellow man. divine beings can look, act, type, speak, and behave however they choose to. They can write with proper syntax, 0R SP34K 3NT1R3LY L1K3 TH15. it says nothing about their divinity.

Vikings weren't white? Can you make a post with the sources please? I would LOVE to read the evidence.
That’s not what I said.
ALSO THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MY SIGYN WOW Literally N O W H E R E does it say Sigyn was white. I’m sorry if I’ve popped your bubble or something?? This is a personal choice- yes it has some to do with the fact that Marvel movies could pass as a tub of sour cream- but this is my PERSONAL interpretation of the comic book character. Again:
She’s literally an alien space princess from another realm from a comic book (Thor goes out of his way to proclaim that he is NOT A VIKING. Asgardians are NOT Scandinavian. They are beings from another realm/dimension)
It is well-known that the Vikings were great explorers and voyagers. However, one tends to overlook the extent of their voyages. From the countries today known as Scandinavia, the Vikings traveled south to England, Ireland, France and Spain, and settled there. Names of cities and the nature of the people are obvious signs of the significant role they played in these societies for almost three centuries. They also traveled to the Arabian world in northern Africa: Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. In fact, more than two million Arabian coins have been recovered in Viking burials all over Scandinavia, proving the extent of their exploring and trading.
“There was a man hight Thorvard; he married Freydis, a natural daughter of Erik the Red; he went  also with them, and Thorvald the son of Erik (100), and THORHALL who was called the hunter; he had long been with Erik, and served him as huntsman in summer and steward in winter; he was a large man, and strong, BLACK AND LIKE A GIANT, silent and foul-mouthed in his speech, and always egged on Erik to the worst” See SAGA OF THORFINN KARLSEFNI.“According to Egils Saga, of the 2 famous sons of Kveldulf, Thorolf was tall and handsome like his mothers people, but Grim took after his father was black and ugly. Grim’s sons Thorolf and Egill, born out in Iceland, repeated the pattern- Thorolf was the image of his uncle, tall, handsome and sunny-natured, and many Egill was black, even uglier than his father, totuous and incalculable,…..etc. craggy head, broad nose, heavy jaw and swart visage.” See A HISTORY OF THE VIKINGS, GWYN JONES pg 86
The vikings traded an incredible amount compared to other cultures at the time. You know what happens when people travel, set up ports, and settle? They mix. Trade centers have always been melting pots for cultures. Also
A good read: Alastair Bonnett (1998) “Who was white?The disappearance of non-European white identities and the formation of European racial whiteness”, Ethnic and Racial Studies, 21:6, 1029-1055 (Thank you @wildfire-loki)
And it wasn’t just vikings going out to places like Constantinople, people went to them, like Ahmad Ibn Fadlan
The vikings had a word black men- blámaðr (noun m.) ‘dark man’
And yes, the vikings took slaves, some accounts of those thralls being poc
I am a history nut- but I’m not particularly well versed in Viking Age history so if someone’s out there that’s more knowledgeable about this topic by all means please add to this!
In summary it’s just plain unrealistic to think of Vikings as a white only culture. In the end they assimilated into Europe. I think there’s this false sense of history that things must have been black and white, with modern day views on something like race or mixing with those races. This isn’t the case, and again, is just unrealistic.
EQUALLY UNREALISTIC IS SAYING SIGYN MUST BE WHITE
I have nothing against white Sigyn designs! This is just a personal choice! If it really, truly bothers you that much then by all means click that unfollow button
