I still find it the funniest thing that the French nobles were scandalized when Louis XVI *didn’t* take an official mistress or sleep around, as French kings were expected to in the 17th and 18th centuries.

He’s just like “but I love my wife” meanwhile the court at Versailles is all “what the fuck is this monogamy bullshit”.

While we’re on the subject of Louis XVI trivia, I read that when the French Revolution was just beginning, he tried to run in hopes of getting support and then reclaiming power. He dressed up as a servant, grabbed his family and went for the border, but he stopped to get something to eat. The owner of the place got suspicious, compared him with the image on the coin and subsequently called the guards. The king was escorted back to Touileries and many people laughed that if it weren’t for his voracity, he would’ve escaped but he didn’t even make it to the border because he was too hungry…

Tom Reiss’ The Black Count is full of trivia like that, if anyone wants to read it. It’s supposed to be a biography but it’s more like a history book. And it’s one of the best books I ever read, to be honest. No wonder he won a Pulitzer prize for it…

Doctor Who AU » one last phone call.

We all change. When you think about it, we’re all different people all through our lives, and that’s okay, that’s good, you gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all people that you used to be.

When I took the part (of Belle de Jour) I had just finished Doctor Who and I wanted to do something really different, not to upset people or prove a point, but because it’s fun and interesting and you learn something from every different character that you play. But some people were very critical of me for that.

otterymary tagged me! thank you dear, I admit I have been dying to do this *blushes*

List ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you.

  1. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (and also The Three Musketeers, but I think The Count had a bigger influence on me)
  2. Harry Potter series - though Order of Phoenix in particular
  3. The Black Count by Tom Reiss
  4. Wszystko czerwone by Joanna Chmielewska
  5. The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle
  6. Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
  7. The Madman’s Tale by John Katzenbach (I read many crime stories because I love the genre and this one’s still the best I have ever read)
  8. anything by Edmud Niziurski
  9. Year 1984 by George Orwell
  10. Zawód: wiedźma by Olga Gromyko (the entire Wolha series, although I like the first book most)

Is it just me or is there a distinct breathing subplot in this season?

friendly reminder that anyone born between 1985-1998 didn’t get their hogwarts letter because voldemort’s ministry wiped out the record of muggleborns.
