Frescoes in the church of SS. Eusebio and Vittore in Peglio, over Gravedona, Como by renzo dionigi

tbh it is Giovanni Battista Della Rovere, detto il Fiammenghino (n. 1561-1627) blackpaint20

renzo dionigi is the photographer’s owner, not the painter Giovanni Battista Della Rovere,

i just took this quiz for fun and my result is:

you are darkredviolet
#600B40
Your dominant hues are red and magenta. You love doing your own thing and going on your own adventures, but there are close friends you know you just can’t leave behind. You can influence others on days when…

FML

you are seagreen
#2E8B57
Your dominant hues are cyan and green. Although you definately strive to be logical you care about people and know there’s a time and place for thinking emotionally. Your head rules most things but your heart rules others, and getting them to meet in the middle takes a lot of your energy some days.

Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don’t be afraid to run out and make things happen.

Your outlook on life can be bright or dark, depending on the situation. You are flexible and see things objectively.

The description fits, but fuckin seagreen??? I want red, damn it!

"One of the ad libs that happened was when I came on set for the dinner party scene, and they had the sort of chicken claw thing sticking up out of an appetiser.
And I said “we gotta use this man, this is ridiculous! It’s this dead claw thing.” And they kept it.  And I started to ask “what is this?” and then I went “forget it, I don’t want to know what it is.”“

My dad is watching a talk show about Scotland and someone proposed that Southern Italy should secede and bring Naples back to its glory days of capital city.

I’m not supporting any of that stuff unless they bring back the Holy Roman Empire, too. With Austrians all over the Milanese and Joseph II alive and kicking in Vienna.

I’m sorry when are we going to bring Prussia back?

Bring back the Roman Empire instead and resurrect Latin as the universal language.

The Roman Empire did more good than the EU could ever hope to, bring them back. They wouldn’t piss around either, watch ISIS go down in a fortnight.

I have an immense amount of hatred for anyone who judges the worth of women based on how good they are at so-called “typically male things” like fighting, IT or engineering. You do not have to be good at those things to be a worthwhile person.

I also have a seething bubbling hatred for people who outright accept for men to not be good at so-called “typically feminine things” like cleaning after themselves, communicating or being nice to others. You do not have to be good at those things to be a worthwhile person, but how do you survive in modern society?

Dear urban fantasy authors,

I love you to death, but perhaps one of you could demonstrate that your female protagonist is “strong and independent” without giving her an alpha male boyfriend to be strong at.

Hey, maybe if you want to demonstrate your lead’s strength maybe give her a career in science, engineering or IT.  Just a thought.

Yes, because clearly giving a woman an alpha male career makes her strong.

I am so tired of definitions of “strong” that only involve being good at things that are traditionally coded “male” (math, science, engineering, fighting, being stoic). Sometimes being “strong” (for both genders) has to involve things that are generally coded “female” (nursing, educating, enduring, emoting).

I tell people that I’m one of the “invisible women” in my field, because I work in an engineering context without being an engineer. I have been through death and rape and starvation and bankruptcy. Go ahead, tell me I’m not strong because I’m not in STEM and have a tall, dark, and handsome boyfriend. I will stab you with my knitting needles, and then patch you up afterwards, because strength comes in many forms, and mercy and forgiveness are important too.

about
I'm Cora, XXV, INTJ, bi-lingual. Confused psychology graduate. The content of this blog can be a bit whimsical, but usually it should contain fandom related things in combination with history and art, sometimes "travel" (mostly Europe). I have a big love of the Byzantine empire and chess.

My fandoms are:
  • Hannibal
  • Sherlock
  • LOTR/The Hobbit
  • GOT
  • The Knick
and to a smaller extent:
  • Pushing Daisies
  • MCU
  • Cabin Pressure

I'm not heavily involved in shipping, I tend to be greedy and just keep the characters for myself. When I do ship, it tends to be stuff that puts other people off, so be warned: I mostly ship het, but I'm into everything from incest to age difference pairings (and as it happens I seem to never ship slash unless there's one or both of taboos involved).

I occassionally make graphics, but it's usually not very good because I don't have a shred of talent. I take literature pretty seriously and I'm a snob and what I love I love unshakably, and I am a certified golden source for film recommandations. I love giving film recs actually, so please poke me about that because I could talk forever about movies.
