I like you, you can stay.
With this tweet, he becomes a fan favorite and signs his death warrant.
But no, this is the logical choice.
I know I’ve got some Benedict fans on my list here, but you can’t really deny the validity of this. :|
I love BC, but yeah. :(
Bury me in a mahogany casket.

oh my god
every story in the history of the universe is better with:

Ummm…I am so VERY into this right now!
But Black people in period or fantasy settings totally makes the stories unreal.
Also holy shit I love these.
How come I don’t run across this stuff regularly?
Because of racism and the retroactive erasure of POC in Medieval Europe. Pretty much the same reason you almost never see these works of art either unless you’re already looking for them:
I’m gonna be that person and point out that a lot of these paintings girljanitor added from the “Middle Ages” are actually from the Renaissance/Baroque era, where a lot of these paintings are very famous in the art world. Hell, in my lower level Spanish Art and Society class we discussed the second picture (Portrait of Juan de Pareja) moreso than some of Velazquez’s other more “famous” paintings. It’s hanging up in the Metropolitan Museum of Art as we speak. Soooo…yeah. Throwing works of art into false categories to prove a point doesn’t really prove anything.
And I suppose I might as well attach this here too:
Considering one of the painting I posted has the date “1744” right on the fucking front of it, you might imagine I’m probably aware of it.
Also pretty sure Alessandro, Duke of Florence lived July 22, 1510 – January 6, 1537, whose portrait is included
As well as the portrait by Jan Mostaert, who lived 1475 – 1555…
Or the Black squires painted by Guadenzio Ferrari, who lived 1471 – January 11, 1546…
Or any of these pieces which might be a little more REALLY TRULY FUCKING MEDIEVAL
