Yeah boy it's my baby Lati
Yet another character from a different story
Unfortunately to everyone involved I have a good handful of stories that I forget to say anything about and instead just drop random facts and skedaddle off
And speaking of that have an out of context comic that made me cackle while drawing it

Unethical, underhanded and corrupt practices have left the Western Australian Liberal Party a penniless ‘political wasteland’ on the verge of ‘extinction’ with disaffected members considering starting a new conservative party, according to a report released on Saturday by the WA Liberal Party.

ooc ✨ ‘the dark valley’ has some amazing cinematography, reminiscent of the place spark grew up in; the plot has little to do with HER story, but... the mountain scenery. the pale, bleak white and bitter cold. the contrast between the insides of the houses and the blinding snow outside. masterful.

Legends and myths about trees
Celtic beliefs in trees (2)
- Who were the Celts?
Celtic means 'unknown people' in Ancient Rome and was not originally a term for an ethnic group.
The Celts appear to have migrated to central Europe around the Danube River in the early to mid 1st millennium BCE. They were first discovered around 500 BCE by the Greek historian Hecataeus of Miletus, calling them 'Kertoi'. Or 'Celtae' in Latin, and later the Romans called them ' Galli'. However, it is unlikely that the Celts in question were conscious of themselves as having a 'Celtic' identity.
The latest archaeological and linguistic evidence suggests that the Celts have their roots in western Central Asia, around what is now southern Russia and Ukraine.
It is not clear how the ancestral Celtic peoples arrived in Europe, but as mounted nomads based in the steppes, they probably travelled westwards along the Steppe Route and entered Europe. It is estimated that from around 1000 BCE onwards, they moved inland from around the estuary of the Danube River and extended their settlement into the lower Alps.
As their population grew, they dispersed to all parts of Europe in search of new lands, and by the 3rd century BCE they had settled over a wide area, from the central plains of Turkey in the east, through the Balkans, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland and northern Italy to France, Belgium, Spain, and Britain and Ireland.

I'm curious where the words u used for the four cadinal directions on the Massà world map come from
Massà is inspired for the main part by Marseille so a lot of the vocab I use comes from Provençal and other dialects spoken in southern France.
"Adret" and "Ubac" are used to describe north and south in the context of mountain exposure : Ubac is the northern side of the mountain that gets the least amount of light, and Adret the southern side that is more exposed to the sun. I know it's used in the Alps, not sure if that's the case elsewhere.
"Levant" is pretty self explanatory, it means "rising" so it's used to describe the direction of the rising sun in many languages that use latin roots.
"Tremont" is the least straightforward. It comes from the Tramontane / Tremuntana ("across the mountains"), one of the main Mediterranean winds, that blows from the north west. I've seen the western direction described as Tremont in Provençal, so that's what I used, but I don't think it's a frequent way to describe it. To be fair I suppose if you're in Marseille, Tramontane comes from the north really, so it's a bit of a stretch but it sounds cool lol. There you go !

im gonna go ahead and say it.
discrimination of slavs isnt xenophobia. its straight up racism.
there’s apparently a character in craig of the creek who is slavic and - the joke is - that he’s a dumb slav! ha ha ha! speaks about himself in third person and is a bully, which is so slavic, isn’t it? its hilarious. especially when you consider the history of slavic people, which i’ll shortly summarize here, with some quotes.
xenophobia is thinking someones national costumes are funny, or that their dish smells foul. in slav case, its different. slavs have always been racially discriminated, murdered, enslaved, and whichever history period you take, youll see it.
in fact, its so prominent that word “slave” literally comes from “Slav”. you can read about the root of the word here: American Heritage Dictionary
whatever period you take, you’ll find discrimination of slavic people. especially in nazis and fascists cases. prosecuted on the same level as jews, back then. the difference was that slavs were “too stupid and barbaric” and preys to “masonic jew machine”, and that they needed to be exterminated. here’s more text from wikipedia.
Count Galeazzo Ciano, Mussolini's son in law, and the Foreign Minister of Fascist Italy who was later executed by Mussolini, wrote the following entry in his diary:[9]
Vidussoni comes to see me. After having spoken about a few casual things, he makes some political allusions and announces savage plans against the Slovenes. He wants to kill them all. I take the liberty of observing that there are a million of them. "That does not matter," he answers firmly.
(slovenes in this case not refering to only slovenes from slovenia, but also all slavs.)
one of fascists politics was also forcefully italianizing croatian names during 1920es when a part of croatia was under italian control. yes. people went to prison for not wanting to change their names. ive heard plenty of stories about grandfathers from older people being taken away to camps because they refused to change their names. during that reign, hundreds of croatian schools were shut, and teaching our language was forbidden.
“When dealing with such a race as Slavic – inferior and barbaric – we must not pursue the carrot, but the stick policy. We should not be afraid of new victims. The Italian border should run across the Brenner Pass, Monte Nevoso and the Dinaric Alps. I would say we can easily sacrifice 500,000 barbaric Slavs for 50,000 Italians.”
Benito Mussolini
nazis had exactly the same stance, with policy of exterminating slavs so germans could inhabit the slavic lands.
from wikipedia:
The Nazis' policy towards Slavs was to exterminate or enslave the vast majority of the Slavic population and repopulate their lands with millions of ethnic Germans and other Germanic peoples.
of course, slav people were also targeted by KKK:
In Canada, many xenophobic white supremacists were deeply tied to their nation's "Anglo-Saxon" culture, specifically from the early 1900s to the end of World War II. The Ku Klux Klan in Canada was prominent in the provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta, both of which have a relatively high Eastern European ethnic population. Immigrants from Ukraine, Russia and Poland were frequently denounced and targeted.[10]
During World War I, thousands of Ukrainian Canadians were seen as "enemy aliens" as Canadian nativists saw them as a "threat" to Canada's Western European heritage. Due to this, many of them were interned in concentration camps. There was constant discrimination towards Ukrainians who recently immigrated from the Austro-Hungarian Empire.[11]
and even though this is too far away for the western europe to understand, macedonians in greece are still struggling today, with greece not recognizing macedonia as an independent state.
Today, the Greek state does not recognize its ethnic Macedonian and other Slavic minorities, claiming that they do not exist, with Greece therefore having the right not to grant them any of the rights that are guaranteed to them by human rights treaties.
yes. you read that correctly. greece does not recognize macedonian or other slav minorities and can choose not to grant them any rights guaranteed by human rights treaties. read that again. and again.
slavic people are rarely shown in media. because we are not important enough. to the west, we are some silly little people living in the balkans and arguing with each other and going to wars over silly things. the only times slavs appear in media is russian spies or other villains. which you know; slavs are a much more diverse race than just “russia”. and in fact, russia has controlled and exploited many slavic countries.
and when we ARE shown in media, its not much better. i have never seen a proper slavic representation. in literally all the cases of slavs appearing on the screen, they are illiterate, stupid, and cannot speak language.
casa de papel. viktor krum.
craig of the creek.
in every single piece of media ive ever seen, slavs have been portrayed as barbaric idiots. the way weve been portrayed for hundreds of years. in fact, craig goes so far to basically show a slav person being a lapdog to a white american. with the character speaking in third person and being dumb.
we dont fucking speak in the third person. it doesnt make sense in our language. its a racist and stereotypical portrayal, and the best thing is that nobody seems to care. the media has made good progress with stopping to make fun of black, latino and asian people, but you know who you can always make fun of?
because you know.
its just some silly little dumb people.
living far away.
and not a race which has historically been undermined, hunted, placed in concentration camps, attacked, and enslaved.
im getting kinda fucking sick of it. yall should reblog this.
