740. There have been an increasing amount of muggleborns whose patroni are dragons. Cute, friendly dragons that are completely the opposite of any expectations from half/purebloods. Delighted squeals of “a night fury!” can be heard upon the summoning of these patroni.

Since the original article has since been deleted (I can’t imagine why…), you can still view it here.

While ancient Egyptians were, by all accounts, black, the fact remains that their civilization was under foreign rule for the last 340 years before its collapse.  There are literally numerous funerary coffins from that time period—different from a traditional Egyptian sarcophagus—that bore portraits depicting the person inside.  These are referred to as Fayum mummy portraits.  They are clearly a departure from Egyptian practices and artwork, and are considered as direct Roman influence, so yes:  There is quite a lot of evidence as to the Greek and Roman occupation of Egypt.

As for Cleopatra, even her name is of Greek origin.  As mentioned above, she was part of the Ptolemaic dynasty of Greek rulers that served as Egyptian pharaohsThe land would be later ruled over by Romans, Arabs, and Muslims.  It is not known who her mother is, but it is speculated that even her mother may have been part Macedonian, and not fully Egyptian, thus putting even the suggested quarter of Egyptian heritage into question.  While both queens Hapshetsut and Nefertiti were of pure Egyptian lineage, Cleopatra was not.

Or, if you’d like even more information, I’m pretty sure I’ve got a few books around here on the subject.

But seriously:  Please do not make a post about the history of anything unless you are knowledgeable enough about it that you are not presenting a false account of someone else’s civilization.

thank you

Upon cleaning out the darkest depths of my grandmother’s fridge, I discovered food that is older than me. This expired in February… 1987. This can saw Reaganomics. This can saw the Challenger explode. It saw the fall of the Soviet Union. It was around when Tupac got shot. Both times. This can is older than The Simpsons. #Bruh

That can is older than a lot of my followers.

That can may be older than my husband.

Season one?

And now,Season 3

Look at Mary’s jeans…

And look where Sherlock’s gaze falls…..

I want to believe in this!

Mary makes a point of drawing our attention to the jeans.

Conclusion: Mary is *definitely* not the father.
