Sometimes I wonder whether, if I’d been the one that went for coffee and not Lesley May, my life would have been much  less interesting and certainly much less dangerous. Could it have been anyone, or was it destiny? When I’m considering this I find it helpful to quote the wisdom of my father, who once told me, ‘Who knows why the fuck anything happens?’

So here it is. My first contribution to the Foxglove Summer Countdown. It is one day late, but I’ve had a lot on in the last few days and over the weekend so I wasn’t able to write the fic I had in mind, or even a shorter one I came up with. But I now have an ao3 account, so that’s great (it’s cat_empress).

This is an edited version of the powerpoint I made for my reading blog a while ago, and I think it’s much better. I’ve put more thought into the last slide, in particular, and made some additions to the ‘more awesome characters’ page. I hope it’s okay.

THESE BOOKS ARE SO FUCKING GREAT. 

Seriously. Peter Grant is everyone’s favourite massive nerd, there’s a mysterious character called “The Nightingale” who gets angry when books are upside down and has a weird thing for plants and is also A GQ MOTHERFUCKER WHO DRIVES A BADASS CAR AND DRESSES SMART AS FUQ, Lesley’s story is SO INTERESTING, there are diverse poc characters, JESUS CHRIST I AM DYING JUST READ THESE FUCKING BOOKS I WILL BUY THEM FOR YOU OR LEND YOU MY COPIES

#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…

I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.

The shade is real

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.

Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
    I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.
