“Menstrual pads have been mentioned as early as the 10th century, in the Suda, where Hypatia, who lived in the 4th century AD, was said to have thrown one of her used menstrual rags at an admirer in an attempt to discourage him”

if you don’t think history is a truly inspiring subject you’re wrong (via fashiondisastercecil)

I have to add, this wasn’t just a case of a pretty woman got advanced on by a man she didn’t want. He wasn’t just an admirer. He was her student. She was a master at mathematics, astronomy, and philosophy. She had popular public lectures.

And she wasn’t just said to throw her menstrual rags at him. The story I read was that he admitted his admiration in the middle of one of her teachings, and she grabbed her menstrual rags right out from in between her legs, hurled it at him, and told him “This is what you really love, my young man, but you do not love beauty for its own sake.” 

It wasn’t just an attempt to discourage him. It was teaching him a lesson, even when he was interrupting hers.

Basically, Hypatia was amazing.

HOLY SWEET SOMMERSAULTING BABY EONWE!

Hearken to me, ye Silmarillion Fandom! Celebrimbor is the wraith in Shadows of Middle-Earth! I am sorry tyelpings but I am very much in agreement at least with that sexy voice of his!

I imagine him as way younger and naive-looking. This older, sterner Tyelpe is something I like!

Wait a minute… who is…

There was so little in common that bound them, but neither one had ever feared the dark. 

Mylene Jampanoi as Lúthien, Eva Green as Thuringwethil. Inspired by [x]

so i decided that i wanted to start drawing again and get back into the habit of doing arty stuff because it’s been like over 2 years since i’ve done anything

and i decided to make myself draw at least one thing every day and apart from yesterday when i felt like shit i’ve drawn a few things every day and it feels so good?? like even though they don’t come out exactly how i wanted them to and they don’t look like the picture i was drawing from i don’t care because i did it and it’s not terrible 

omg idk it just feels sO GOOD not to get half way into a drawing and completely give up because it’s not quite right, and to not care whether something is perfect because i enjoyed drawing it and that’s all that matters???
