The Fall of Tenochtitlan :'(

^Do you think the Mexica Movement would 

mind if I stole one of their pictures lowkey like that? D:

Well, hello everyone. Sorry that I haven't touched this blog all summer. My 

friends Aspen and Vickyish have been writing guestposts in the meantime to 

keep you entertained.

 I hope you had fun listening to the Alexander Hamilton musical songs. 

Murica's dankest founding father, amirite? Remember if you want to check 

out more stuff written by Aspen and Vickyish then you can read their blogs,

 which are definitely better than mine because they don't make their posts 




and they actually stick to one topic for the duration of their posts. They 

also don't begin every post with "sorry for not updating for so long" like

 I do. Well, Vickyish apologizes for her procrastination, but Vickyish put 

the pro in procrastination, so it's okay.

Supporting them supports me too, as they are my best IRL friends after all. Actually they are my ONLY IRL friends :/ . 

It's kind of like the triple alliance between Texcoco, Tlacopan and Tenochtitlan.

Okay no, that was a really lame attempt at referencing the Aztecs.

Speaking of the Aztecs/Mexica, this day in history marks the fall of the Mexica empire. 

This means that throughout this whole day I looked like this:

Because obviously the fall of the Mexica empire was the worst thing that ever happened in history. In my opinion? no actually... really... I'm not even being biased.  

August 12th and 13th of 1521 were the final days of the battles between the Aztecs and the Spaniards. The Aztecs were pretty much screwed at that point, as the water supply had been cut from Tenochtitlan, and smallpox killed almost everyone. Most of the people who were left to fight weren't even supposed to be warriors. Emperor Cuauhtemoc, the last Aztec ruler, challenged Hernan Cortes, the leader of the Spanish army. 

Do you think the Mexica Movement would mind if I copypasta Olin Tezcatlipoca's quote on the topic? 

"August 13, 1521 Marks The Fall of Tenochtitlan
Tenochtitlan fell to the Europeans because of their use of smallpox as a biological weapon. It also fell because we had too many traitors amongst our people, proving we were not a perfect people.
Today it is not so much the Europeans who hold us back from liberation. They have the traitors holding our people down for them.
Treason and cowardice, fear and ignorance, are all holding us back from our full humanity, from liberation from Europeans.
There are traitors all around us: in our homes, in our families, in those we trust. They are selfish egotistical opportunists looking out only for themselves.
We will eventually be liberated from Europeans, but first we will have to deal with all of the traitors amongst our people."

It is such a R.I.P thing seriously.

Shall I copy Vickyish's signature sign off now as I really do not know how to

 end this on a positive note? Alright here it is:
