modern nazgul


i like archaic letter variants, like the long s (ſ) & the r rotunda (which looks kind of like a 2 but isn't available in unicode yet). maybe i should decide to be a little bit knowledgable about them. like, really dig in & know about ligatures & serifs & those weird abreviations that scribes used. shit like that. maybe even the weird roman praenomen & sundry. which, when i think about it, is probably more evidence of the fact that my brain thinks that, given a lucky shot, i could crack the voynich manuscript. when in fact we all know what the voynich manuscript says. every one of us, its sworls carved into the vegetative grey flesh in our skulls. while the rest of you rot, we rise, veves & halos.
