Doctor Who GrammarThere are three main "parts" of Time Lord grammar. These "parts" are: Tense, Sub-Tense and Form
The most simple way to explain how these parts go together is to observe the following equation:
Tense + Sub-Tense + Form = Subject Of Sentence
So everything that follow is all in order to say "I" or "You" in such a way that it will make sense to a Time Traveler. Now we will examine the parts of grammar in greater detail.
There are 18 Tenses. The Tense is the general messurment of Time, relative to the subject
Tenses have two parts, which for simplicity's sake we will call Group A and Group B.
Group A = The "Time" of the event you are speaking of.
Used when talking to one of your previous Regenerations.
This is more like the Future tense of English and other Earth Languages.
-A Fixed Point
-Events Which Occurred In A Paradox

Ancient Egyptian Art and MythologyAuthor's Note
Ancient Egypt was a HUGE society with a rich culture and a highly developed religion. Egypt is one of the most famous ancient cultures because of its unique funerary practices and its incredible architectural feats. Now some of you are reading this because you're interested in Ancient Egyptian art and others of you are (like me) take an art history course and reading this to help study. I will be tailoring this journal for those taking an art history course but no one wants to be bogged down with bland information so I'll try to keep this interesting (not that it's hard because it's ANCIENT EGYPT!)
Note that dates aren't terribly important just make sure you are in the right century
What you really need to know
The entire period of Ancient Egypt lasted from 3500 BCE to 1070 BCE and was broken into four periods: the Predynastic and early dynastic periods (which we are
Confessions of a Potterhead.No, it wasn't just a book/movie series for me; it was so much more than that. It was a place I could go to when I wanted to runaway. It was a magical place I could go and feel alive with friends. I could believe in everything, than anything was possible, even when there wasn't any light of hope left. I found comfort and security on Harry's side. I found loyalty and trust in Ron. I learned to be strong with Hermione. I learned to stand up against my enemies and my friends with Neville. Luna taught me that it's completely fine to not be like the others. Fred and George showed me that there's always humor in the most serious situations. Draco let me know I can learn from my bad decisions. Sirius taught me to say 'fuck the police' and look for justice. I learned that I can have all the power, like Albus Dumbledore, and still have my weak point. I learned how to love and be brave like Severus Snape.
When the real world was going down on me, I could open a book and escape to a new world. It'

Zutara Week '10 Day 1: FamilyFamily
You know when you think about it, our group (or Team Avatar, as I'd like ot call it) is really dysfunctional. It's really weird how very different people became the best of friends...No, wait. We're more than that. We became a family.
I mean, look at it. There's Aang, the goody-goody spiritual mumbo-jumbo boy....and of course he's the avatar. It was really hard for me to trust him but hey, give me a break. The world was at war that time. I admit, I didn't like him at first but I've really grown to love him as a younger brother over time. How could you not? He's always trying to help people out and he never hurts others unintentionally. He's even a vegetarian, for spirits' sake! I can't imagine living my life without meat...Anyway, I owe my life to that guy. He has literally saved my ass countless times and protected me and my sister from harm. I guess that's always been his nature. He was raised by monks, for crying out loud. I guess even if he
Art History: Celtic Art In Early History
Celtic Art - A Look In History
Written by KovoWolf for projecteducate
There is something so unique and so humbling about Celtic art that we can immediately recognize it when we see it, though it is difficult to truly describe as a single 'medium'. With intricate designs, swirls, and beautiful knotwork however Celtic art is also a medium that you can recognize when you see it. Because Celtic art covers a huge expanse of time, geography and throughout various cultures, it can present some difficulty when trying to term or define what Celtic art truly is.
Celtic art and culture date back as far as the 8th century B.C generally refers to the culture of the European Iron Age from around 1000 BC onwards, until the conquest by the Roman Empire. The Early Medieval art of Britain and Ireland, which produced the Book Of Kells and other masterpieces that are well known today and can be associated with "ce
ExorcismExorcizo te, omnis spiritus immunde,
in nomine Dei Patris omnipotentis,
et in noimine Jesu Christi Filii ejus,
Domini et Judicis nostri, et in virtute Spiritus Sancti,
ut descedas ab hoc plasmate Dei [name],
quod Dominus noster ad templum sanctum
suum vocare dignatus est, ut fiat templum Dei vivi,
et Spiritus Sanctus habitet in eo.
Per eumdem Christum dominum nostrum,
qui venturus est judicare vivos et mortuos,
et saecum per ignem.
Zutara Week - Family"Hello Azula. I'm Katara."
"I know who you are peasant."
Summer was drawing to an end though the air remained stiflingly hot to the point where everyday Katara would find her in only her sleeping garments on the windows edge looking out to the view the backside of the castle allowed her, which was of the gardens and the wall that surrounded the Imperial City. Katara opened the door gently before closing it behind her.
Azula's eyes flickered to her before becoming engrossed in whatever she was looking at previously.
When Katara had first heard the insult she had tried to reprimand Azula but Azula took that as an invitation to start a fight in which she always won. Azula was a master of words and using them to hurt you. Katara though had mastered the art of humility and sucked up her pride for the sake of helping Azula. Katara sat on the windowsill facing Azula.
"May I take a look at your head?"
Azula scoffed but nonetheless did not move to catc
