Help I’m stuck in the conspiracy theory part of wikipedia.
i remember back in my youth of a whole 6 months ago, railing at the world of enjolras/grantaire fanfiction, “if you clearly don’t even like one of the people involved, why do you even ship it?”
dorian/kennex is my penance. i’m so sorry i judged you.
ha ha ha almost human update: i just won ang over to actually full-blown shipping john/dorian by presenting a situation where dorian finally has enough of this shit, flips out on john’s anti-robot bullshit, and fucks off and joins the robot revolution, and then a decade or more goes by and john eventually falls on the right side of things but so late, too late to save a lot of lives when the moment comes, and does miserable penance working for the revolution for years and years, and meanwhile dorian is fighting and running and doing amazing shit and has a romance with another robot who then gets killed, and also at some point valerie joins the robot underground and kicks a lot of ass and gets many robot prosthetics, and then eventually john and dorian accidentally and unexpectedly meet again after having no contact or even being sure the other is alive for ten years and john is older and craggy and greying and dorian’s robot body has been patched and changed so much and they don’t know what to say and it’s so horribly awkward and so many feelings and they don’t even end up together, they just…finish the mission and exchange really intense looks and john apologizes and dorian, like, nods meaningfully. and then they part ways again forever.
and that is my best and truest version of a happy ending for this wretched awful wrong pairing. AND IT WORKED ha ha ha haaaaa
god it’s such a bad pairing, i am so sorry dorian, you never deserved this shit
it’s true. this is now my one true vision for this ship.
I’m glad that Bilbo Baggins exists
Because in the book, the dude was pretty firmly middle aged when his crazy-ass adventure started
He was settled down in the house that belonged to his parents and had done precisely jack shit with his life
It gives me hope that maybe some nutcase wizard will eventually show up and be like yo
you’re a burglar now
don’t even care that you didn’t roll rogue homie we got dragons to slay and kingdoms to save
so i think tonight i’m gonna change my tumblr layout. HOLD ME.
okay last mis hols related post for a while I promise
but I remember at some point someone posted general information about what your average student’s apartment would be like in terms of…layout and furniture and stuff? I in my infinite wisdom cannot seem to find it but I’m sure it exists somewhere, and I know I have lots of well-informed and clever people who follow me for some reason, so if any of you know where it is/can show me somewhere else that information might be found, I would be super grateful ;;
Oooh I’d also like to know about this!
There’s a good description of typical student housing on pages 191-192 here!
this may help, though it’s centered on medical students.
Most student accommodations were dark and unappealing, with only one tiny window. Shephard Taylor described his new apartment as rather dull and gloomy, but admitted that it was ‘free from the noise and turmoil of the main thoroughfare, is an advantage not to be despised by one engaged in studious occupation. A student apartment of one or two rooms often comprised no more than a hard low bed, a table, a writing desk with locks, a chest of drawers, two armchairs, two chairs, a small clock over the fireplace and a wash-stand. The decor was often limited to the medical student’s essential items: pieces of a skeleton, jars of pathological and anatomical specimens, and textbooks.
from “medical students in england and france 1815-1858” by f. pallualt.
they kept pathological and anatomical specimens in their apartments???
that’s kinda weird
IT GETS WEIRDER
this quickly became the most exciting piece of research to come across my dash in a while
#new headcanon is that no one wants to stay with joly because there are so many body parts in his room
do you think like 600 years ago book nerds got real mad when the printing press was invented because filthy casuals could get books without having to copy them out themselves
Actually yes they did
and there were certain ancient Greeks who were angry when writing was invented, because it meant that literature was more accessible to the filthy casual masses
true shit, people
People never change do they
we got taller
