“The Amyrlin gave an exasperated sigh. ‘You remind me of my uncle Huan. No one could ever pin him down. He liked to gamble, too, and he’d much rather have fun than work. He died pulling children out of a burning house. He wouldn’t stop going back as long as there was one left inside. Are you like him, Mat? Will you be there when the flames are high?’
He could not meet her eyes. He studied his fingers as they plucked irritably at his blanket. ‘I’m no hero. I do what I have to do, but I am no hero.’”

Robert Jordan, The Dragon Reborn (via punnylittlepiggy)

And this is a great illustration of the difference between Jordan’s Mat and Sanderson’s Mat. Had this conversation happened with Sanderson at the helm, Mat would have made some sort of terrible pun about pinning, and he would have had an internal monologue about how terribly attractive Siuan or that she would be to him if he weren’t married. And then we’d all roll our eyes because Sanderson’s Mat’s misogyny and slapstick is irritating.

Anglican slumber parties where instead of talking about cute boys we tell Eucharist stories and cry

road to el dorado both is good gif

Does the crying happen when we begin to argue about what the Eucharist is exactly and whether it should be offered to the unbaptized and people get so angry with each other that they break down in tears? Because if so, then yes, that sounds like seminary.

Marshmallows dipped in melted butter, then cinnamon sugar, wrapped in crescent rolls and baked. They’re called Hocus Pocus buns because the marshmallows disappear! YUM is understatement!

OMFG.

i want to try this wow

Resurrection Rolls. Marshmallows are Jesus and the roll is the tomb and cinnamon are the burial ointment and spices. Or at least that’s what I learned during Easter.

We called them resurrections rolls too. We used to bake them at the church around easter time. 

GIVE THEM TO ME NOW

The segregation of kindergartners — by the numbers

Here, from the non-profit Economic Policy Institute, is a snapshot of how segregated public schools are, starting in kindergarten. It was written by Elaine Weiss and Emma García. Weiss  has served as the national coordinator for the Broader, Bolder Approach to Education since 2011. García, who joined the Economic Policy Institute in 2013, specializes in the economics of education and education policy.  EPI was created in 1986 to broaden the discussion about economic policy to include the interests of low- and middle-income workers.

Wheel of Time Official and Unofficial Art
I think a lot of fans of Epic or High Fantasy tend to have a series that’s “their” series…the one the ends up setting the bar for the rest of their fandom adventures. For me, it was always Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time. I read the first book, The Eye of the World, sometime in 1991 and that was pretty much it for me. 
Although it has plenty of flaws, it stands apart from a  lot of medieval fantasy settings in that it’s a loosely medieval-ish world, not an endless Europe that goes on and on for thousands of miles. There are very specific nations and cultures at work in the main setting continent (as well as the “other” continent), and there are also in-universe races and cultures associated with nations, with aspects of various  historical world fashions, social mores, myths, and even bric-a-brac chosen from a world setting, rather than creating a dichotomy of red-haired white people versus blonde-haired white people and other common fantasy tropes.
Although many of the characters can be read ambiguously in regard to appearance, Gallagher’s character designs are among my favorites, and generally faithful to the text descriptions. medievalpoc:
