[[ First of all, WELCOME to the two new followers that recently followed here! Thank you for following! It’s a pleasure!
What I would also like to mention is to start following their new blogs, which are Syria and Lebanon’s respectively.
I plan to make a come back to these blogs around the end of January (This month) when I might have most of my Pokemon stuff out of the way by then. Plus, I plan to do some full body references for both my O.C’s and other interesting tid bits and head canons for them, so yeah :D I am quite excited to know that I actually might get to that at some stage!
I am also going away at the end of January interstate around the 24th or 26th of January… Just giving you a heads up.
Thank you for your time guys!
I’m kind of living on the Turkish border now… Things have become very dangerous.
It’s not home, but, it’s what I’ll be calling it for a while I guess.
Hi by the way *chuckles nervously*
[[ Erm, Syria just wants Hatay back… yeah the little nook in the Eastern part of Syria that Turkey decided to take in 1939 because France gave it to them :|
They never wanted Cilicia… how awks. They were just neighbouring entities during the Crusades… Principality of Antioch anyone?
Armenian Cilicia was only close to the Principality of Antioch. And Syria also has bones of the dead of those Armenian’s that marched into the Syrian desert during the Armenian genocide.. and memorial stuff and other historical ties.
Just wanted to put in my input… ]]
