Modern Domestic AU where Hal and Poins are shopping for a vacuum cleaner. Hal refuses to get anything except a ‘Henry’. Poins refuses to get a ‘Henry’. The shopkeeper is confused as to why they have been arguing over this for three hours standing in the middle of the shop.

FAO: thepurposeofplaying

The shopkeeper is named Fancis and has been trying to close up for the night for the last three hours. Hal and Poins are the world’s worst customers. Falstaff has been hanging around the store waiting for them dropping crumbs everywhere and pocketing small kitchen gadgets from the displays

i want a show called Man Vs. Wilde where someone is put in the jungle with oscar wilde and has to survive not only the elements but also wilde’s random attacks and massive ego

No. 

Mann vs. Wilde.

Thomas Mann’s pretensiousness and sexual repression vs. Oscar Wilde’s sarcasm and blatant queerness.

Give it to me.

there’s a modern spelling??

Americans have tried to go with archeology, but, unlike encyclopedia and color, it hasn’t really caught on.

9:08pm September 16, 2014

I can never remember if the weirdo modern spelling of archaeology leaves out the A or the E. Both archaology and archeology look equally muddled and empty and wrong (though a quick google search tells me it’s the A that’s elided).

Chopping ligatures in half like that is just so 1890s American, and so faddish, and it’s like nite and thru and other pretend words that pop up when printers get lazy.

 Here’s the ancient bog body discovered in Co Meath

So there isn’t really any more news about this weekend’s bog body (and there probably won’t be for a good while, these things take time), but this article is more elucidating than the two I found this morning, and we have a picture now.

Oh, it exists. It certainly exists. The Fiona Shaw…

Why is Carlisle so unloved? He is like a loyal puppy, except when he gets raging mad at the end. That should be fodder enough for any shipper…

Yeah, but the vow of celibacy makes a big difference ;)

Fanfic writers disregard canon all the time. Surely this cannot be the only reason. It would be a nice test of faith for Carlisle, haha. And UST is always nice.

Disregarding canon is something normal fanfic writers do all the time. Richardclub, we expand the canon and weave around it and fiddle with it throw history at it to see how it sticks, and throw it at history to see how that sticks (most of the deviance from canon happens when we go with real history or with something from another Shakespeare play instead, like giving Aumerle a brother), but I’ve never seen canon just thrown aside in favour of a story. That’s just another reason we’re a weird little fandom.

But Carlisle is anything but unloved, It’s just all platonic :) (though if someone wanted to write something shippy that directly addressed that vow of celibacy, go for it!)

Well, here’s a question that isn’t fair. Three right answers.

Ok, if you guys want to find me on quizup just look for Roonwit, I seem to be the only person there who named himself after a character who shows up for like two sentences in one of the less popular Narnia books :) (I’ve been kicking butt in the Narnia category as well as Shakespeare)

Come not between the dragon and his wrath, (for you are crunchy and good with ketchup).

Ok, so how do I find you on quizup. I’m only Titania so far, but this is happening :)
