St. Andrew’s Hall was a public building in Charleston South Carolina, on Broad Street. The hall served as headquarters for the St. Andrew’s Society of Charleston. It was also an important part of the social life of upper class- Charlestonians.
It was used for balls, banquets, concerts, and meetings of organizations like the South Carolina Jockey Club and the St. Cecilia Society. The hall could also be used for lodging, and both President James Monroe and General Marquis de Lafayette stayed there.
On December 19, 1860, delegates from South Carolina met at St. Andrew’s Hall to discuss possible secession from the United States. The following day, they met in Institute Hall on Meeting Street, which became known as Secession Hall and voted 169 to 0 to secede. South Carolina delegates later ratified the Confederate Constitution there on April 3, 1861. South Carolina was the first state to secede from the Union.
The St. Andrew’s Hall as well as Secession Hall were both destroyed during a Charleston fire on December 11, 1861
On 16 April, Union forces probed a weakness in the Confederate line at Lee’s Mill or Dam No. 1, resulting in about 309 casualties. Failure to exploit the initial success of this attack, however, held up General McClellan for two additional weeks, while he tried to convince his navy to maneuver the Confederates’ big guns at Yorktown and Gloucester Point and ascend the York River to West Point thus outflanking the Warwick Line.
General McClellan planned for a massive bombardment to begin at dawn on May 4, but the Confederate army slipped away in the night toward Williamsburg.
You’re my mother. I was ten years old. You were supposed to protect me. But you sent me to live with him. To LIVE with him when I TOLD you what he did. What did you think was going to happen? Did you think he would stop, now that I was sleeping in the room next to his? I know it isn’t right, but I blame you more than I blame him.
are there any scenarios or characters you *wouldn't* be willing to write for?
Ooh, this is probably a good question to answer, huh?
Doing this as a separate post without answering any other comments because I’ll be mentioning some pretty serious topics and I want to make it easy to skip. I’ll tag for any triggers I can think of.
Characters - uh. I’ll write for everyone, I guess, though I kind of doubt anyone will have Rika specific requests or requests about Glam Choi, Sarah Choi, or Echo Girl. If you do though, I… guess feel free to send them? lmao. Also, I’m fine with including them in requests. (Edit: well i literally just got a rika request so okay i guess people do want her. Ya, it’s chill, I’ll write for her!)
in my country the age of consent is 16, but a teacher from my school still got arrested and added to the sex offense register despite that he waited til a student he was grooming was 17 to do anything with her. this is why sh@lad/n ships squick me so badly, i just think of the power imbalance, the difference in maturity between them and sh///ro and it makes me think of bad things people i know went through, and the close calls i had with gross teachers when i was a student.
yeah the low ages of consent are for minors and other minors, not for gross adults to take advantage of them.
I seriously cant breathe? Like, I’ve been seeing the mentions about us on twitter, and the whole fiasco with …that part of tumblr from a couple weeks ago and I realised I am really underestimating the attention this blog has. I thought it was a safe space for minors and CSA survivors in the voltron fandom but we get lolicon loving 20 year olds, racists and everyone in between talking about us like this. I really have no idea what to think after reading what I just read.
I’m getting called a “homophobic fundie xtian” (im a bisexual leftist muslim) because someone who spends their time on an obscure anonymous fandom forum site couldn’t make the distinction between being sexually attracted to a fictional character and having a sexual orientation and then went on to liken religious homophobia to being anti child sexualisation?? I have no idea how someone can naively invoke the most harmful homophobic stereotype while calling someone else homophobic? Like what type of lack of self awareness?
If you want to bring attention to a certain nuance, do it. Just please be respectful. I really won’t give you thought or time to people being aggressive or grossly defending shaladin on anon. Don’t shit talk the intentions of people you’ve never spoken to unless you know they are aware and remain ignorant. That is just skipping steps to take a moral high ground. I could see why you would need one if you have no qualms with shipping shiro and pidge.
Antis have made it clear we don’t prioritise legalities because its not about that. Its about a 25 year old preying on a 17 year old still being gross and predatory as fuck. There’s a massive gap in maturity there and its very homophobic when it’s an m/m pairing. I said “17 at the most” not because I want to make Keith seem possibly younger but because that’s not dead wrong and its also not specifying an age that hasn’t been given to us yet? I can see where that could be misleading to a new reader but everyone I would assume knows we go by the video? Why would you reach far beyond my intention if you didn’t want to willfully misinterpret what I say?
I’m the same age as the anon. I’m literally 17 and yet people are either saying I’m policing children or that I’m a child that should shut up? What? Like, I answered the question but made the bottom line of the post being “don’t worry about this, just enjoy yourself” and people are demonising me over it? Why is that a problem but 25 year olds shipping sh/aladin is not?
Gosh, Idk. This was so incohesive but I had a massive shock about the breadth of our audience and there are so many people I really wish had never seen this blog. For three months, our biggest purpose has been engaging with like minded people. We’re real people and there is a massive mob mentality we’re dealing with at this point and we’re being namedropped and called the worst blog ever and toxic and abusive and there’s no explanation besides hating your ship for being exactly that- toxic and abusive. I’m just…tired. - MS
Most people have a healthy understanding between what is ok in the real world and what is ok in fiction and are comfortable in the knowledge that what they’re rping/writing is morally wrong and illegal in some cases but do it anyways because they would never act on their fictional actions in the real world.
