seventh requiem

See how the setting sun, with ruddy glow, the green embossed hamlet fires. He sinks and fades, the day is lived and gone. He hastens forth new scenes of life to waken. O for a wing to lift and bear me on, and on to where his last rays beckon.

The Beauty of the Last Agni Kai

The final showdown between Zuko and Azula remains one of the most beautiful scenes in Avatar: The Last Airbender and maybe even the follow up series The Legend of Korra.

I just love how the colours of their destructive firebending clash against one another and spiral across the air.

Not only is it visually appealing, but also a pleasure to listen to.

I still think that this is the most breath-taking and most intense battle in Avatar history.

This gave me the chills just watching the gifs of it all over again. Both of them have come so far throughout the season (even though Azula totally hit rock bottom). I seriously need to watch this over again. 

My lovely followers, please follow this blog immediately!

Oh wow it’s a d20 from 2nd Century Rome
Best part? The lot notes:

Several polyhedra in various materials with similar symbols are known from the Roman period. Modern scholarship has not yet established the game for which these dice were used.

QVIRINVS, YOV CAN’T CAST MAGIC MISSILE “AT THE DARKNESS”, YOV NEED AN ACTVAL TARGET. FVCK’S SAKE. - actual Pompeiian graffiti

that last comment kills me XDD

Turhan’s Bey Company needs to see this.

I remember when this went up for auction about fifteen years ago. Given my ethical objections to the trade in antiquities, I could never purchase such a thing, but…
(IIRC, formal speculation was it was used in divination rather than in games. This makes some sense; because the Romans didn’t have a zero, they couldn’t have developed the concept of THAC0.)

This is also why we’ve stopped shopping with Overstock.com…
