different types of elves   [X]

Okay, so I’m doing this marathon of The Borgias while I have the house to myself, and I’m just past the part in season two where Juan is beseiging Forli and threatening to kill Caterina Sforza’s son. Caterina then gets up on the wall and, exposing herself to the waiting army, shouts that killing him is fine by her, becuase she has the means to make more sons

And I looked at the TV and laughed. Because one, she totally stole that line from John FitzGilbert during the seige of Marlborough Castle three hundred years and several hundred miles away, and two, I’m just enough of a nerd to know that.

The child in question during the Siege of Marlborough was John’s son William, who grew up to be William Marshall, one of the best knights of his age and a total badass.  Plagiarism aside, the historical Caterina Sforza was also a total badass.

This is probably how they convinced Tom to join…

To those who take the time to message the writer of that one fic and say how much you like the fic and etc.

You are awesome people. I don’t care how many times someone tells me I’m a good writer, or they like my stories or anything like that, it means the world EVERY DAMN TIME.

So thank you, kind readers. It’s like a warm hug on a cold day.

I’ve been experimenting with bees and gold ink! Also my scanner crapped out, which is just as well because the ink looks better photographed than scanned.

So, there’s only like two of you who follow my writing and will care about this,  but there’s a new chapter of A Rose Among the Briars, if you’d care to read.
