Well it finally happened. With the increase of wedding-themed reality shows, it was inevitable that a geek-themed wedding would merit its own installment. We follow Julian Roman and Mandie Bettencourt, who met playing Final Fantasy XII Online; she was a human ninja, he was an elven dark knight. This is not uncommon, as I explained in The Evolution of Fantasy Role-Playing Games:

Rome Given my presence this week in the conurbation that still has the confidence to call itself the Eternal City, it was inevitable that I’d be thinking about gladiators.  Touring the Coliseum, we are immediately liberated from any temptation to romanticize the lives of the men who fought, often to the death, for the amusement of the Roman people: slaves, prisoners, condemned criminals, fighting wild animals or each other — when common life is bread and circuses, meat is meat. That some…

Spectacular Italian jewelry. Many ancient centers in glass art, had formed in several localities of the Roman world: near L'Aquila, in Campania (Pompeii, Herculaneum, Cuma). The golden age for the glass coincided with the maximum flourishing of Roman civilization. It was inevitable that his sunset also bring with it also the decline of glass art that will rise elsewhere.

Carthage grew to rival Rome.  But only under the leader of its greatest general: Hannibal.  A clash of titans was inevitable.  Roman jealousy brought about the First Punic War — in which Hamilcar became a leading commander — and her efforts enabled her to defeat Carthage in her own element: at sea.  Although Carthage was on the wane at the time of the Barcas, the impetus, intelligence and ability of Hamilcar and then his son Hannibal almost carried them to success....

There are several wine-growing regions in Morocco, including areas near Agadir, Casablanca, Marrakech, Rabat, Tangier and Tetouan. The Meknes area outside of Fez offers a compelling combination of historical landmarks, beautiful landscape and wineries. The town of Meknes is the usual base camp for visits to the area, but Moulay Idriss - Morocco's holiest town - is far more scenic and nicely located.

Morocco wine, forbidden fruit

An online dramaturgical notebook. Such a good idea!

Though it originally began purely as a war machine, the Roman army evolved to fill other roles. This was an inevitable outcome of the growth of the empire. As Roman territory spread under the late republic and early emperors, more soldiers had to be kept on the books, ready to defend existing territory or push beyond it as the opportunity arose. Something had to be done with all these men when they weren’t fighting. There was already a blurred line between military and civilian roles in the…

Pictured is the mummified heart of the vampire Auguste Delagrange, before his demise in 1912 Auguste was responsible for the deaths of 40+ people in Louisiana during the worst outbreaks of vampirism in the US. He was eventually identified and hunted down by a most surprising pair, a Roman Catholic priest and a voodoo man. He was tracked down, a stake was driven through his heart & his body destroyed, consigning his soul to its inevitable end. All that remains is the heart you see before you.

Atropos or Aisa (/ˈætrəpɒs/; Ancient Greek: Ἄτροπος "without turn"), in Greek mythology, was one of the three Moirai, goddesses of fate and destiny. Her Roman equivalent was Morta.  Atropos was the oldest of the Three Fates, and was known as the "inflexible" or "inevitable." It was Atropos who chose the mechanism of death and ended the life of each mortal by cutting their thread with her "abhorred shears."
