I really miss Cas, so I drew a thing
My head kept giving me ideas of a story for that first page and so I’m continuing the comic! I wanted to see what would happen so here we go :) Page 3 should be up soon!
Not many people know the stereotypical heart shape was meant to be two hearts fused together
Hey there. History nerd here… not many people know this “fact” because it’s not true. The universal heart shape we recognize today has nothing to do with the heart, actually. It has to do with early Roman birth control.
The Romans used a plant called silphium to prevent pregnancy. It was so effective that it became a critical part of Rome’s economy and daily life. It was literally so important to their culture that the image of it’s seed were even imprinted on currency.
It’s the exact shape of the heart we know today, and this is the first time it’s visage was ever recorded in history. It was so important to them, and so highly prized that they actually drove the plant into extinction by over harvesting it for use.
This shape was so ingrained in their society’s conscious as a symbol of sexual liberation that it became associated with all aspects of intimacy, eg. sex, unity, and love.
It’s not two hearts sewn together. It’s an ancient plant that Romans used to have gratuitous amounts of sex before condoms were around.

#look at this#just look at this#it’s not about some fucking mini-bar in a motel room#it’s not about dean’s tired sarcastic crack#it’s about that moment when you’re at the complete end of your rope#but somewhere across the distance there’s someone who cares about you#despite what you are and what you will become#the tiny pinprick of candlelight in the blanket of dark (via yellow-turtle)
