You know, it’s funny to think that George Blagden’s period work could actually just be a whole timeline of an immortal character.

He starts off as Athelstan, a 9th century Anglo-saxon monk who (doesn’t die and) goes to Paris. He eventually whittles his way into becoming a French King in the 17th century and sets up an absolute monarchy, but then in the 19th century realises that it was a terrible idea and that the whole situation could pretty much be blamed on him so becomes a pessimistic revolutionary drunk.

Gustave Courbet painted Louis Guéymard as Robert le Diable in 1857.

The scene illustrates a moment from the opera Robert le Diable, by Giacomo Meyerbeer. As the Metropolitan Museum writes, the “setting is the cavern where Robert plays dice with two servants of the devil while his father Bertram, an evil genius, looks on.”


So let me make it clear for people running around with this twitter followers bullshit… auntie, in the REAL world nobody give a flying fuck about it. As a matter of fact Zayn Malik  has more followers than Beyoncé. Since you’ve been running around calling Zayn a flop and Louis a boss because he has more than Zayn…Will you dare to call B a flop too? ….mmmm? Yeah I didn’t think so. 

We are kicking the babies out of the zayn malik bandwagon. Losing followers is GOOD and it’s exactly what they want! If it wasn’t the case the last 3 months wouldn’t have happened, he would have played NICE and do EXACTLY what y’all want him to do rn ak.a declaring his love for ot4 all day long and swearing up and down to never touch a mic again (yes we know that’s what the haters want deep down). You know nobody goes ghost like Z he could have recorded a full album in his basement completely MIA until he actually drop it. But that’s not what’s happening here..what’s happening is  literally our version of miley grinding on robin thicke /singing about dildos & drugs/feuding with o’connor/getting engaged/smoking weed on tape/cutting her hair and posing naked. We are kicking the babies OUT of the fandom. This is hollywood use your brain.
