George Blagden and Why You Should Appreciate Him

Okay, this post is for my cousin jawn-of-the-opera who does understand what a wonderful person George Blagden is. Therefore I am making this to try to make her see the light. jawn-of-the-opera, you must watch every video even if you have already seen it. No excuses.

So let’s begin…

OK, first things first:

                                            THAT VOICE

There is NO possible way you can listen to his voice and not think that it is just plain sexy.

EXHIBIT A:

George singing "This" by Ed Sheeran. Listen to the lyrics while he is singing, and melt.

EXHIBIT B:

George singing Hallelujah. There is no way you can hear this and not love him.

And since I do not want to overload this post with a load of videos, this will be the last song.

EXHIBIT C:

George singing "Leave" from Once. Seriously, he can conjure up so much pain in his voice, plus he has a wonderful lower register that you can fully appreciate in this video.

Ok, that is enough for the singing. For now….


Next up let’s have some appreciate for the fact that he is actually a big dork.

Remember: Safety first, that is why you always wear a motorcycle helmet on a bouncy deer.


And on slides.

How can you not love someone who is made so happy by a pancake? jawn-of-the-opera​ how?

I mean COME ON!!! His smile is like sunshine!

Dorky sunshine

Did I mention Grantaire?

Or Athelstan?


Even these coconuts are falling for him!


OK, next up: AWKWARD DANCING


And I am going to just leave this here because….Wow, fandom.


I will leave you with one more video to watch:

ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE

This might possibly be the most awkward, goofy thing ever (in which our friend the motorcycle helmet makes his glorious return). Prepare yourself for the weird.

AND JUST IN CASE YOU MISSED IT. HERE IS A SECOND SHOT OF THE TONED PECS AND ABS THAT I WAS TOTALLY UNPREPARED FOR AND PLEASANTLY SURPRISED TO FIND .

Congratulations jawn-of-the-opera​ welcome to a new fandom

It's is me again! I had asked a while ago about how to represent and pray to a few goddesses and it was very enlightening however this question regards any good sources on the Celtic side of Wicca, I'm trying to research more and understand the culture but I don't know where to start! Thanks ahead of time and blessed be

Aren’t you in for a treat. 

I study Celtic paganism and Celtic Wicca fairly extensively. It is one of my areas of expertise. I’m a fan. 

The first thing I suggest is reading up on celtic mythology as a whole. The best book I have found for this is by author Peter Berresford Ellis that is called the Mammoth Book of Celtic Myths and Legends. You can get this book for less than five bucks. It is worth while. 

The following is a list of celtic pagan books that I suggest: 

This is a short list, but it is defiantly a list worth looking into. I hope it helps you find your way. 

I’ll enjoy this show even more especially because I KNOW for a fact that the “shipping” nonsense will NEVER be canon and will never be anything more than the delusions of over-excited fangirls. It’s friendship being represented in the show and no matter how much you delude yourselves into thinking of discrete innuendos and “signs” for anything that would support your wishes, it won’t change. I’m deeply satisfied by this. Long live the good FRIENDS Ragnar and Athelstan. Bromanship to the max.
