Q
autistictheon: thers' a short story in the canon of the 1982 thing (called "the things" iirc) written from the thing's pov and its reaction to the humans is the same level of sheer visceral shocked disgusted horror that the humans react to it with. It was written by a third party for a writing contest and john carpenter liked it so much he made it canon

bogleech:

Oh yes. You would think a story from the Thing’s perspective and explaining almost everything about it would just demystify the whole movie and take away some of the horror, but THE THINGS is absolutely terrifying and enhances the movie for me. I had no idea Carpenter decided it should be canon, that’s wonderful.

This is Alexandrite, it’s also called “emerald by day, ruby by night”
It changes colour based on whether the light source is from the sun or from a candle.
It does this because Alexandrite strongly absorbs yellow light due to chromium ions in its crystal structure, leaving the other colours behind. Light from the Sun emits all colours, but it peaks in the green, and our eyes are most sensitive to green, so in Sunlight Alexandrite is green.
Incandescent lights are things like candles and filament light bulbs. They also emit all colours of light, but they peak far, far into the red, so there’s not nearly as much green or blue, so under those, Alexandrite is red. 
Gemstones are awesome.

(via Vanth, Etruscan goddess associated with death. by TheArtOfTheMask)
Basic information found on her at the usual places—Wikipedia, Encyclopedia Mythica.  The British Museum has another image of her and some more background here.
I know next to nothing about Vanth, but this image is beautiful, stirring.  Does anyone know anything about her— Etruscan Pagans, are you out there?  Or does anyone at least know what the inscriptions on the mask mean?  Thanks.
