In a Game of Thrones AU, Wellington would have to be from the Reach, the Wellesley seat is called ‘Dangan Castle’ which is outside the village of ‘Summerhill’ have you ever heard anything more Reachy? but now that I’ve really started thinking about this AU I can’t quite work out whether he’d be one of those who, after the death of Renly, would support Stannis, or follow the Tyrell’s into the uneasy alliance with the Lannisters. I mean he’d know the ‘Baratheon’ kids are Jaime’s, so…

God what have I done? damnit colonelpontmercy. You always get me caught in this…

He recognized her despite the uproar, through his tears of unrepeatable sorrow at dying without her, and he looked at her for the last and final time with eyes more luminous, more grief-stricken, more grateful than she had ever seen them in half a century of a shared life, and he managed to say to her with his last breath: “Only God knows how much I loved you”
Love in times of Cholera, Gabriel Garcia Marquez (via lediableaquatre)

Wait do American people not call their friends mate?? Is this a thing???

Yup. I’m sure some do but mostly people just say friend. Which is boring but whatever.

Wait so you go up to your friends and be like “Hello friend.”

we use names

If you are a napoleonic enthusiast and can read French, this book can be used as a reference for things that go from the registry of Napoleon’s horses (with names, characteristics and dates of death) to the price of Roustam’s habit.

why is every white boy named after some prehistoric bullshit. hunter archer tanner fisher. we get it. you’re straight.

i’m naming my son stamp collector. it may not be a time-honored profession like the others but dammit it’s the family business

OP seems unaware that there were definitely homosexual prehistoric men - which is a shame considering their username seems to indicate they’re a fan of such things - as well as non-white dudes who bear these names.

at some point, you can’t even combat this nonsense. You have to let them shout at themselves because it’s pointless to argue. You aren’t going to win against someone who is determined to find something, anything, to be miserable about and who is simply searching for a fight.
