blake-ritson-love: girolamodavinci: BUT WHAT IF GIROLAMO TRIES rEALLY HARD TO ACT SEXY AND MOST OF THE TIME LEONARDO JUST LAUGHS AT HIM I think this is what happens in the series.
What is wrong with Doctor Who? →
firebirdy: ohputitdowngrantaire: dancingcabinet: I thought it was time to give some thought to what the Doctor-assistant relationship is, what function the assistant has on the show, how Doctor Who distributes personal qualities by gender, and why I now hate this lovely show that I used to love. Damn, this rings true and it breaks my (1) heart. “[in Moffat’s Who] the woman is not of...
Hornblower (Archie!) Fans
Okay, so look at this precious face for a second: ] Now look at this one, and picture the hair maybe a bit less RED red and with maybe more wavy than curly hair: TELL ME THAT ISN’T WHAT BB!ARCHIE LOOKED LIKE. JUST TRY TO TELL ME. With his long curls and pretty eyes and sweet, sweet face. I’ll just be over here, dying from the cute.
iwantajaneaustenlife: can we just take a minute to appreciate Jane Austen’s take on relationships, specifically Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy? Darcy confesses his love to her and she rejects him. does he continue to pursue or stalk her because that’s the God given right of men? NO. HE BACKS THE FUCK OFF. he never goes after her, never proposes again, never makes another move until Elizabeth...
Okay, I’m going to have to work an explicit declaration of ‘Freddie is madly in love with Cornelius and Thomas’ into this thing because if I don’t people might ship him with Susie. :/ They might still do that, of course, but I want to make the canon position clear at least. Barbara will let it slip soon, and I keep adding ‘LIKE A BROTHER’ every time...
I would make a Giuliano’s Trousers appreciation photoset but I think it would actually be too obscene. UNNNNNF. when is he going to make out with Leo like he wants to so much?
ladyoliviers: [aggressively waits for a proper adaptation of Mansfield Park.]
mumblingsage: moniquill: Fuck Yeah Character Development!: Writing Tips #74: Basic Tips To Write Healthy Relationships bookgeekconfessions: Romance is a popular genre, but it’s often handled quite badly.

tips for (period) Austen fanfic
juliangriffith: anghraine: not quite meta, just a reaction to stuff I’ve noticed more than usual recently. disclaimer: it doesn’t mean your fic is terrible badwrong if you don’t do these things or that nobody likes it or that your fic is even not good or that I am a perfect Georgian-period Austen fanwriter who has followed this to the letter from seventeen onwards, it’s just stuff that makes...
I committed fanfic
juliangriffith: And it’s all kittygamble’s fault. She was telling me that some obscure-fandom-crossover meme included the prompt “Edrington/Georgiana Darcy”, and we were talking about how we couldn’t quite make it work, and then I said, “You know what works better? Edrington/Darcy.” Her reaction was something like this: After she recovered, we talked a little bit about some other crossover...
midshipmankennedy: buckbeakbabie a ragi votre billet : Thanks for all the reblogs! There are some of us around, but it did get very quiet in the fandom, yes. :( I WAS JUST READING A THING about a Georgian chancery lawyer/MP/attorney general and it gave me Archie feels, because he was discussing overly harsh naval punishments and buckbeakbabie a réagi à votre billet : Thanks for all the...
CLARA'S TRUE IDENTITY
nicoleanell: durnesque-esque: cheeringinthesnogbox: If Javert was the name of the Doctor we would’ve totally heard it by now.
blake-ritson-love: defythebox: Riario sex scene, yes, no, now, maybe, please, season two? Ok Blake Ritson (who plays Riario) said in an interview that while Riario doesn’t think of women/men/sex right now, there might be some temptations later on. (Don’t know when the later is or what is coming.) Ooooh. Interesting.
Hey Writers: Help Me by Helping Me Help You Help...
mumblingsage: Long story short, I’m living off what I earn through my writing right now. This isn’t so bad, except writing income tends to arrive over the course of months, and is less than helpful when you need money right away. So to meet some expenses in the meantime, I’m hiring myself out as a manuscript editor and self-publishing a guidebook for writers who want to get their work into...

Cosmo sex tip #254
shredsandpatches: bifrostedflake: cosmo-sex-tips: In the middle of sex, say ” Long live the king” then push him off the bed. Nothing they haven’t done…… *dead*
kittygamble: And that’s a first draft. A really rough and messy one that needs a lot more work, but still. A FIRST DRAFT. So this just happened. I’m not sure how to process the fact that I wrote a novel.
