Slowly, without taking his eyes from hers, the man in the black coat knelt before her.  ”I have come for the girl in the window,” he said, and his eyes filled with tears - Deathless, Catherynne M. Valente

Oathkeeper; Even the sound of it is sharper than an ordinary sword. Valyrian steel, spell-forged. It was a sword fit for a hero.

ahh so mildly freaking out with excitement and apprehension because it’s my first day of grad school! the class i have today is the one i’m most excited about because we’re talking about memory and space and how we consciously choose to interpret and represent past events and this is like my absolute favorite thing to talk about so i am dying to get started

and everyone in my program is fabulous, they’re all huge history nerds and i feel like i finally found my people! yesterday we had an hour to kill and some of the second year students took us on a tour of the historic part of campus and highlighted the lack of representation for anyone who wasn’t a white male in this memorialized space since the school actively tries to emphasize it’s antebellum heritage thereby excluding mention of all but one woman and a very difficult to see tribute to a black male. they also pointed out how you can see the fingerprints of some of the slaves that built the brick walls around campus if you look closely. also there is a tree for some unholy reason dedicated to Robert E. Lee (who has literally zero ties to the school) and it’s just one of those “ugh WHY” things like the fact that the confederate flag is flown outside the statehouse a block away from campus. BUT interpreting controversial history is fascinating to me so while i dislike these interpretive choices it does make for a very interesting place for me to start doing public history work 

basically my brain right now is just: HISTORY!!!!1!!
