charles james the one and only


When a king brands us pirates, he doesn’t mean to make us adversaries. He doesn’t mean to make us c r i m i n a l s. He means to make us monsters.
For that’s the only way his God-fearing, taxpaying subjects can make sense of men who keep what is theirs and fear no one. When I say there’s a war coming, I don’t mean with the Scarborough. I don’t mean with King George or England.
Civilization is coming, and it means to exterminate us.

Trump claims “no politician in history has been treated worse”

So I decided to dispute this claim for him in a list form. I even just stuck to presidents, though he left it open to “all politicians.” Here are some examples of criticism our former presidents received:

  • President George Washington: had to borrow money to attend his own inauguration; Jefferson repeatedly accused him of treason especially regarding the Jay Treaty
  • President John Adams: entire reputation scourged by a scathing 72-page letter written by Alexander Hamilton (a member of his own party) about how horrible he was
  • President Thomas Jefferson: election called the “greatest misfortune our nation has ever experienced” by Martha Washington; also historically despised by many of his colleagues
  • President James Madison: was frequently made fun of for being small/frail/weak (5'4", about 100 pounds, very sickly); the wife of a Virginia politician once labeled him “the most unsociable creature in existence"
  • President James Monroe: was nicknamed “The Last Cocked Hat” due to his outdated revolutionary-era fashion sense he still kept later in life; also…he acquired Florida
  • President John Quincy Adams: constantly plagued by calls of illegitimacy for his term because of the backroom deal he made with the House to be elected over Jackson
  • President Andrew Jackson: basically almost caused mutiny of Southern states over a tariff; was chastised for his nepotism and also nicknamed “King Andrew” for his selfish/monarch-like tendencies as president (also committed genocide but I’m not counting that in here because he was actually LAUDED for it)
  • President Martin Van Buren: nicknamed “Little Magician,” “Sly Fox,” and “Red Fox of Kinderhook” for his shitty political skills, small stature, and red hair; Charles Ogle called him “Martin Van Ruin” on the floor of the House of Representatives
  • President William Henry Harrison: gave an ill-advised address in the freezing cold rain & was literally president for 30 days 12 hours and 30 minutes before he died of pneumonia, after which the nation quickly forgot about him
  • President John Tyler: nicknamed “His Accidency” after inheriting the presidency from Harrison
  • President James K Polk: so obscure that one of his rivals coined the slogan “Who is James K. Polk?” during his campaign; highly criticized for his war with Mexico
  • President Zachary Taylor: though only president for 16 months, often remembered as one of the worst presidents in history; as a total outsider he completely demolished the Whig party after his victory
  • President Millard Fillmore: entire cabinet unanimously resigned after disagreeing with him over a free vs. slave state issue
  • President Franklin Pierce: was abhorrently despised for his hand in the Kansas-Nebraska Act and failed to be re-nominated for a second term
  • President James Buchanan: pre-civil war, became so hated during his presidency part of his cabinet resigned; said to Lincoln upon leaving, “If you are as happy entering the presidency as I am leaving it, then you are a very happy man.” Also has evidently been ranked among 3 worst presidents in every poll and survey conducted since 1948
  • President Abraham Lincoln: shot & killed
  • President Andrew Johnson: literally faced impeachment over his failure to work with Congress; during his trial he blamed his troubles on “a mendacious press” that continually criticized him
  • President Ulysses S Grant: no political experience entering office; was loyal to people close to him and as a result failed to remove ineffective people; presidency riddled with scandals and corruption, though none involved him directly it caused him to be remembered as guilty by association
  • President Rutherford B Hayes: official inauguration secretly held inside the White House for fear of the trouble his opponents might stir up
  • President James A Garfield: shot & killed
  • President Chester A Arthur: plagued by a negative reputation of cronyism garnered in his early political career
  • President Grover Cleveland: sexually abused a widow (which he threw into an asylum) and fathered an illegitimate child (which he threw into an orphanage); was criticized with chants such as “Ma, Ma, where’s my pa?”
  • President William McKinley: shot & killed; also had a poor reputation due to his relationship with Republican party leader Mark Hanna who was seen as manipulating McKinley
  • President Theodore Roosevelt: shot & lived; also seen as egotistical and somewhat of a bully, greatly expanding executive powers
  • President William Howard Taft: Ballinger-Pinchot controversy gained so much bad press it led to the split of the Republican party
  • President Woodrow Wilson: aside from massive criticism over his handling of WWI, also garnered criticism for an investigation launched during his presidency over claims of homosexual interactions between naval personal and civilians
  • President Warren G Harding: Teapot. Dome. Scandal.
  • President Calvin Coolidge: actually criticized for saying too LITTLE
  • President Herbert Hoover: severely criticized for his handling of the Great Depression; also ordered Army to break up protesting veterans & his harsh methods got him a lot of public dissent
  • President Franklin D Roosevelt: faced allegations from Republican leaders in Congress who said he left his dog in the Aleutian Islands after a family trip & sent a Navy destroyer to rescue said dog at the taxpayers expense
  • President Harry S Truman: involved in a scandal when an investigation into the IRS lead to the firing of 166 IRS employees; stained with allegations of corruption in the aftermath
  • President Dwight D Eisenhower: many in his administration under investigation as to how many of their “gifts” and personal purchases were allegedly funded by taxpayer money
  • President John F Kennedy: shot & killed; also had a lot of alleged affairs
  • President Lyndon B Johnson: Pentagon Papers indicated he systematically lied to the American people about American involvement and actions in the Southeast Asian region
  • President Richard Nixon: …do I really have to say anything about this one?
  • President Gerald Ford: pardoned Nixon & hated for it
  • President Jimmy Carter: shit ton of criticism for Iranian Hostage Crisis
  • President Ronald Reagan: shot & lived; Iran-Contra affair; AIDS crisis…yet somehow remembered as America’s sweetheart
  • President George HW Bush: secretary of treasury arrested and sentenced to prison for tax evasion and obstruction of justice
  • President Bill Clinton: almost impeached over Monica Lewinsky
  • President George Bush: a journalist literally threw shoes at him
  • President Barack Obama: birth certificate fiasco, “THANKS A LOT, OBAMA”

Note that this is an insanely brief overview of criticisms, but the point is IT’S PART OF THE DAMN JOB, DON. NOW GET THE FUCK OVER IT BECAUSE NO ONE IS ATTENDING YOUR PITY PARTY.

I have read your works! And I love 'The Stars Incline us, they don't bind us' so muuuuuch. If this is not too much to ask, can you make cherik fic rec? Thank you! Keep writing, awesome!

thank you very much, i’m glad you enjoyed my stuff! :3 

since this blog is exactly 5 years old today, what better occasion is there to do cherik fic rec post, as lurking around cherik fic rec tumblr posts waaay back in the day is actually what originally brought me to tumblr in the first place. the following list is in no particular order, and odds are i like multiple fics by the authors included but i was determined to limit myself to one from each (though in some cases, this was a veeeery close call, haha).

anyway, the actual title of this list is coincidentally the main criteria i used in the interest of not having it stretch on for miles, which is to say:

From 'alibi' to 'mauve': what famous writers' most used words say about them
Zadie Smith’s ‘evil eye’, JK Rowling’s ‘dead of night’ … favourite phrases – and cliches – tell a fascinating story

For my book Nabokov’s Favourite Word Is Mauve, I created a computer program to sort through thousands of books by the most revered and popular authors to find out their “cinnamon words” – relatively rare words that a particular writer uses often. Obviously every author used function words such as “the” and “from” at a high rate, and basic adjectives like “big” or “fast”, but cinnamon words are the words that each author uses disproportionately compared with other writers.

Nabokov used the word “mauve” 44 times as often as one would expect, which makes perfect sense in hindsight. He had synesthesia or, as he called it, “coloured hearing”. When he thought of a specific letter and sound he would see colours at the same time. Unsurprisingly, he uses colours at four times the rate found in standard English writing.

Sometimes, if you look at an author’s cinnamon words, you can already hear their voice. Consider these three: civility, fancying, imprudence. If you guessed Austen, you are correct. These are the three words that, compared with the rest of written English, are mathematically the most used by Austen.

Given Nabokov’s emphasis on colour, it’s safe to assume he was aware of the words he favoured in his writing. However, it’s possible many authors are unaware of the words they are using at an abnormal rate. Sometimes the words are inescapably linked to the topics they write about, as in Christie’s case (inquest, alibi and frightful). At others, you get a sense of the author’s tone through their most uniquely used words. While Charles Dickens preferred hearted, pinch, rejoined, JRR Tolkien favoured elves, goblins and wizards, and Wharton has the polite nearness, daresay, compunction, John Updike’s three are rimmed, prick and fucked. It only takes three words (and just one four-letter word) to zero in on each writer’s style and set it apart.

Using the 2013 Dictionary of Cliches by Christine Ammer, I scanned through the same collection of books to find cliches that writers use most often. There was a clear frontrunner for the title of “most cliched writer”: James Patterson. The bestselling US author averages 160 cliches per 100,000 words, about twice as many as JK Rowling and Gillian Flynn.

Patterson writes the phrase “believe it or not” in more than half his books, but he’s not the only author to use at least some cliches. Austen loved to write “with all my heart”, Dan Brown uses “full circle”, Stephenie Meyer books are filled with “sighs of relief”, and Rowling has her “dead of night”. Even literary authors are fond of a cliche, with Zadie Smith falling back on “evil eye”, Donna Tartt on “too good to be true” and Salman Rushdie using “the last straw” in more than half his novels. Not all cliches are bad, but it’s clear some authors rely on them more than others. EL James is in the upper tier of cliche users, with one of her favourites being “words fail me”. [full article]

OH MY GOD. I found a new fact out about Charles II.

Charles was really….hmmm…not super ostentatious in dress?? He was fashionable but he often chose muted colours or blacks for his clothing. But he absolutely LOVED his Order of the Garter robes and outfit. He loved it so much that, not only did he often wear it in his portraits, but he would often wear it out for one of his strolls in Windsor Great Park or when he went to feed the ducks in St. James’ Park.

Words: 1053

Requested: by @officialconsultingpsychologist

A/n: this is a multiparty series with about 5-7 parts (it could be more or less tho)

Its been so long. So long ago that you met James. And from that day on, your life should be another one. Suddenly you weren’t the only person you cared about anymore. Suddenly you opened up and forgot about all the walls you build up all those years ago.
It was not easy but he helped you become a better person.

And with every other day the stinging pain in your heart doubled up. Because you knew exactly what was going on in the nights.

When he was alone and thought no one could hear him.

Most nights he cried out the pain from his nightmares. Some nights he’d just sit awake in bitter sadness, not a single noise disturbing his train of thoughts.

He rarely ever cried.

But when he did it took all inside you to keep yourself from going to him to calm him down.
You wanted him to be alright. You wanted him to feel loved. And you wanted to give him that love.

But Steve told you not to. You didn’t understand why. You just couldn’t comprehend the feeling that overtook you the moment Steve talked about all the bad inside James’ head.
And silent tears ran down your cheeks as you listened closely.

He gave himself the fault for all that had happened.
He makes everyone believe he’s alright, he just doesn’t know he can’t fool them. He thinks they see him the way he wants to be seen. But in the end everything we see is a broken man, trapped in the cage of his own twisted mind.

And it hurt you every time you thought about it. Was the life really that unfair ?

It probably was. Because in the end there was nothing you could do to help him get over his past. Except the one thing you never told anyone. The one thing you refused to think about. Except the one thing you knew couldn’t be prevented in the end.

You never told anyone about your gift. It was too hard to explain. Too much at once.
But in the end you couldn’t handle the pain anymore. And you decided to make a step into the right direction.

The night was dark and silent, only whispers from the room next to you echoing through the walls, and the ticking of the clock slowly driving you insane.

It used to be like this when you couldn’t sleep. There was something driving you insane and something keeping you awake.

You turned in the lamp on your bedside table and turned around to face it, kicking off the covers in the movement.

It felt so wrong. Just laying here and not being able to do something.
This time was different though. There was something within you that told you to face the problem this time. You could not just keep ignoring it.

He must feel so bad right now and you couldn’t just lay here and listen motionless.

You flipped to your back with a huff, staring at the ceiling and your fingers tapped on your stomach in a rhythm you couldn’t really make out. But this was just your way to think. You tapped onto your torso without even noticing it as your mind went a mille per second.

Then again, a thought crossed your mind like so many times before. A thought that came from deep within your heart.
‘What would be so wrong about it ?’
And this time you decided to listen to your heart.

You sat up on your bed, not really caring if the other room was silent now or not as you flipped your feet out of the bed and touched the fluffy carpet with your bare feet.

Suddenly a shiver ran through you, seeing as you only wore a tank top and shorts but you really did not care about your outfit at that moment as you made your way out of your bedroom.
Another shiver running down your spine as your feet came into contact with the cold hardwood floor or the hallway.

You made your way over to the next door on the left, knocking three times.
Only now you realized the heavy silence inside and your heartbeat immediately picked up at the thought of him sleeping. You did not want to disturb the few house of sleep he granted himself.
So you turned to leave, full of regret, when you heard slow yet heavy steps coming your way.

And you already cursed yourself as the door got opened from the inside.

James took a glance outside, opening the door wider with a tiny, tired smile at the sight of you.

“Hey y/n you alright ?” He asked, concern lacing his voice as he invited you in.

You walked past him “yeah I’m okay” you told him as you walked, sitting down at the edge of his bed “did I wake you?” You asked him, the same amount of concern lingering in your voice now.

“No I was awake already, its fine” he answered once he sat down next to you.
However he didn’t look at you as he just stared to the ground.

A few minutes of silence went by in which you watched him carefully. Debating with yourself if what you were about to do was a good idea.

“James ?” You questioned, making him look up to you. “Do you trust me?” You continued once his eyes found yours.

And at your question he straightened up, sitting next to you with a frown as he searched your eyes for an answer to all the questions he had in his mind, but there was none.

And you watched him too in patience and fear.

“I do” he told you sternly.

And you let out a breath you didn’t know you were holding. “Okay” you started , standing up from your place on his bed and standing in front of him now as he followed your gaze
, his eves never leaving yours.
“Get dressed please and meet me at my room when you’re done.” You told him and walked out of his room with confidence even if your insides were filled with doubts and fear.

(A/N: Set after X-Men: Apocalypse)

-He is finally comfortable enough around you to be in a Wheelchair. Although he thought you deserved better, he finally see’s himself as more worthy of your hand.

-His sass begins to build up again. He is constantly backfiring, and you bloody love it.

-The nicknames grow, too. He just wants you to feel loved, and appreciated, and would stop at nothing to make you feel that way. 

-Your by his side, as the school begins to build up. The students begin to question though, you helping the younger ones, who see you as a mother figure.

-The one night when all the Students are working, so you both have a movie night, with him endlessly cuddling you.

-When Raven comes back, you’re too happy to see her. and she to see you. Even though Charles is a little cautious.

-He comes to you, after Raven tells him of her need for both of you. You just hold him close, and remind him everything will be fine, in the end. You’ll have each other.

-When he’s kidnapped - Oh god, he fears for your life, he can tell something is going to happen, and he begs to god, you are safe. You have to be safe, for him.

-After you find him, he’s broken. He think’s his hair gone, and the fact he wasn’t there for you, means he was not good enough for you, and your the one who has to prove him wrong.

-He still wakes up at night, fearing of the past, and what is to come, and what happened to Angel, but your there to hold him, and remind him your there.

-Charles gets so much more romantic, yet so much more devious, as if everyday was the last, and he wanted to make sure you had done everything.

-You and Erik, before he goes, share so many stories of what has happened, mainly about his wife and child. Charles dosen’t miss the look in your eye when you’re talking about a family.

-And to be honest, now this is over, he want’s a Family with you. Somebody he can protect, until his last breath. He want’s you, and only you. He loves you way too much. 

anonymous asked:

Hi Dr Ferox, I'm also Australian and considering vet med or human med and am currently studying first year biomed while trying to decide. My question is which unis would you recommend for vet med? I have the marks (from my atar) to attend Charles Sturt Uni and am wondering if you have any recommendations or unis to stay away from. Thanks for your time. QT - Came for the horse anatomy post stayed for the tell it like it is facts

Sorry it’s the Australian biomed student again, just wanted to add I’m interested in exotics if you have heard from any other vets of good universities that offer some exotics experience. Thanks again

The current Australian universities that graduate vets are:

  • Charles Sturt University (Wagga Wagga NSW)
  • James Cook University (Townsville Queensland)
  • Murdoch University (Perth WA)
  • University of Adelaide
  • University of Melbourne
  • University of Queensland
  • University of Sydney

I only have personal experience with one (Melbourne), so I can’t speak with personal experience for all of them, but each uni has a slightly different reputation.

  • CSU has a livestock focus
  • James Cook’s teaching hospital is managed by Greencross, a national corporate network. They have something of  tropical medicine focus.
  • Murdoch is very academic and provides a lot of post graduate education.
  • Adelaide is fairly new. Not sure what to think about this uni yet.
  • Melbourne is home, very academic with a smallies focus.
  • Queensland seems to have slightly better exotics exposure, but don’t quote me on it,
  • Sydney, similar to Murdoch.

So depends what your interests are, and where you can access.

With exotics though, book your work placements as soon as you physically can, because those spots are limited and fill up fast. Leap on them as soon as you can if that’s what you’re interested in.

               You were walking, well more like stomping, through the mansion. You were upset. Upset was nothing compared to how pissed you were at that moment. You had just walked away from Charles, you had to or else you would have punch him. You’ve known him for years, meeting him just after he met Raven. He has helped you get ahold of your abilities as well more like held your hand through everything.


               “Could you stop being so damn stubborn and let me help you?” Charles looked up at you from his chair. You were trying all morning to lift the X-jet off the ground with only your mind. By the time Charles rolled into the hanger, you were getting tired and sweat was starting to glisten on your forehead.


               “You know Charles, I could do this myself. Hank believes in me and so does everyone else here.”


               “I never said you couldn’t do it. I know you can. Just let me help you.” He had a look of concern on his face which only made you mad.


               “You’ve done so many amazing things and the only things I’ve ever done were when you were guiding me like a five year old.” You were now beyond mad. “I’m NOT FIVE CHARLES! I’m not going to leave you here like Erik and Raven did. You have been my brother for God knows how long and ever since then you have treated me like this. I’m A GROWN WOMAN! I CAN DO SHIT MYSELF!” With that, you left the hanger. Not stopping when you saw a few of the others.



               You made it to your room, locking it behind you to make sure no one came in. You walked into your bathroom and took a shower to wash away all the sweat and help you calm down. You even put up a barrier around your room to make sure Charles couldn’t get into your mind.

               Once out of the shower, you got dressed and laid down on your bed. Not caring if your pillows got wet from your hair. Just as you were about to doze off, there was a knock on your door. You groaned just before getting up. You opened the door to see Hank standing there.

               “I, uh, I heard what happened in the hanger.” He scratched the back of his neck. He was always like this around you, ever since you met. “You should have seen his face when what you said sunk in. He looked like he felt bad.”

               “Right now, Hank, I don’t care if he feels bad. Ever since we were kids, he was always trying hold my hand when I tried to do something for myself. I guess I finally had enough of it.” You looked into his blue eyes, you saw worry there. Not for Charles but for you. “I think that is why Raven left. She didn’t want to be treated like a little kid anymore.”

               “From what I heard that’s pretty true. But (Y/n) you need to know that he does what he does because he cares.”

               “I know he cares but he needs to let me do things on my own.” Hank had a sad smile on his face.

               “I know but you should go talk to him. He knows of the barrier you put up around your room.”

               “Of course he does.” You rolled your eyes. You leaned up and gave Hank a kiss on the cheek, if you didn’t know better you would have thought the blue furred man in front of you blushed. “I’ll go talk to him. Thanks Hankie.” You loved calling him that, even though it was recently you started call him that.

               You walked back through the mansion and made your way to Charles’ office. You noticed the door was open but you knocked anyway. Charles looked up and smiled.

               “I’m sorry.” That was all he said for a few moments. “You’re right, you’re not a child anymore and I need to start respecting that.” You saw the look in his eyes, he truly thought of you like a sister.

               “I’m glad you finally see that, Charles. Besides, I’m sorry for bringing up Erik and Raven. It was a heat of the moment thing and I shouldn’t have done it.”

               “I’m actually glad you did. You made me realize that you are no longer that little girl that Raven and I found in the streets all those years ago. You have become such an amazing woman and I’m proud of you.” You felt the presence of a few of the others on the other side of wall. You waved your hand and closed the door and blocked everyone’s minds from being able to hear the two of you talking, nosey bastards.

               “You know the others are on the other side of the wall trying to listen, right?” You looked at him with utter amusement. “Don’t worry, I blocked their minds from our conversation.” You smiled at the fact that you were able to do it.

               “I don’t think I ever taught you how to do that.” He smiled.

               “No you didn’t, I figured it out myself with Hanks help.” Your face went a little red. You liked him but you didn’t want to ruin your friendship.

               “Well, I have to thank him for helping you.” You saw a smile on his face.

               “I’m gonna go get something to eat. This morning took a lot out of me.” You smiled at Charles as you walked out of his office. You walked past everyone, who all had frowns on their faces which caused you to smile more.

               You saw Hank in the kitchen as you walked in. He had made you something to eat, which caused you to tur red a little again. “I take it, you two are talking again?” You nodded you head as you took a bite of the sandwich he made for you. “Good.”

               “Thanks for the sandwich, Hank. How did you know I was coming in here for food?” You looked at him puzzled.

               “Charles.” Of course he did.

               Once you were done eating, you got up from your seat and put your plate in the sink. “Was there anything else he told you?”

               “Ye, yeah. He did.” You looked up at him. His blue eyes were shining and you absolutely loved them. “I, I was, um, wondering if you would like to go on, uh, date with me?” You couldn’t help how cute you thought he was when he got nervous. You leaned up and placed a kiss on his blue cheek.

               “I would love to Hank. Now Summers will stop bugging me to date him, which I don’t like him like that but you, you my favorite smart blue mutant.” You saw him smile. “Plus there is a great spot on the edge of the grounds that I know, which no one knows of so we could have some privacy.” You wrapped your arms around his waist as his wrapped around your shoulders.

               “Wait a minute, you mean Alex has been bugging you to date him.” You nodded your head. You looked up at him and saw some anger in his eyes.

               “Don’t be mad Hankie. Just remember, I’m now yours and won’t ever be his.” You lean up and place a soft kiss to his soft blue lips. “Plus Hankie, I’ve always loved the color blue.” You made him smile, he was made fun of by the others and now they could all shove it. Hank was yours.

The times when James McAvoy was just way too irresistible

Yet another appreciation post. But I only do it for the guys I love most which is a handful few. Besides being a really expressive person, I can’t keep my thoughts inside. Gotta to let it out. Also, my childhood included watching plenty of James McAvoy movies so I have a huge attachment to this man.

I don’t think blue eyes can get any bluer than this. His eyes look like a piece of the morning sky.

The hairstyles only add to his gorgeousness.

You know what’s brighter than the sun? James McAvoy’s smile. His laugh can brighten your day in any given occasion.

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

Exhibit C

Bonus: The different other expressions he does as he smiles. Only he is capable of such cuteness.

You just can’t not find that cute!

This one too.

It’s supernatural, I tell you. Some kind of magic.

How to grab someone’s attention and walk away like a boss.

It’s working for me.

His mind-reading abilities. When he switches to his Charles Xavier mode and you really want him to read your mind.

I really want him to read my mind. He has no idea what’s going on in there because it’s all him.

When you do attempt to read someone’s mind, remember to slightly touch your lips.

He’s a whole bundle of cuteness, but when he chooses to reveal his bold side, the whole place is set ablaze.

Exhibit A

Because it’s a good idea to get up in the middle of the night and grab a snack. I’m up for it.

And walking out of a shower hasn’t looked this blazing hot before.

At the times when he shows his soft side, I’m ready to run halfway across the world if I have to, straight into his arms.

Yeah, I feel exactly the way Erik does there.

And this one.

Is that even a question?!

He’s clever and will accept you with your differences and find a really scientific way to compliment them.

And it’s rather flattering.

Even when you doubt yourself, he won’t.

And then he will reassure you when you need it.

Oh God.

And when he’s sad, it’s too much to handle. He looks like a puppy in need of love.

NOPE. I can’t.

Break his heart, I’ll break your bones. I’ll freaking go Liam Neeson on you.

See, it’s the stuff you grow up watching you just can’t forget. For me, it’s James McAvoy.

You just can’t not love this magical human being.❤💘

I know I do.

Read Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3

Days of voluntary avoiding and an overall concerning silence followed the events that had shaken all the three of us, Charles, Erik and me. Each of us was in a different wing of the mansion, occupying ourselves with anything that would take our minds off things, still trying to process what had happened and how naïve we had been to let it come thus far. Seeking solitude and remaining in it for a while seemed like a suitable way of dealing; and I felt, or better read, that both men preferred to keep to themselves for some time. I myself however had the urge to clear things, to discuss how we would proceed, if we would proceed with whatever we had at all that was. On top of that, I missed Charles. Too long did I have to do without him that the felt split second we had spent together was not enough, by far not. If I was so generously given this second chance and was here, in this very place with him, I wanted to be closest possible. Just to spend time around him, only being in the same room, feeling his presence would be enough. However, pushing either of the two men with confrontation or forcing statements or half-hearted promises from them wasn´t my nature and not my intention either. After what had happened, I needed to be patient and give them time until they were ready to face all of it and its consequences. Incessantly, my mind whirred with ideas and fantasies of how our situation would affect our future relationship and collaboration. Both Charles and Erik were talking about another war coming and having to work together while I still was ignorant about any details. As before, many years back, I had been left unknowing to be safe. But this wasn´t a choice anymore. I was more than involved already and the love for Charles would forbid me to stay away and not fight by his side.

Anna and Grace Headcanons

For @wingardium-leave-me-alone-sa because my computer decided to delete my earlier response and I feel horrible about it.


  • My all time favorite Anna headcanon is that Anna always acts really annoyed when Christopher asks for her to help him test his various hypothesizes, but Anna secretly loves learning from him.
  • Anytime he discovers something new Anna is astonished about what a genius her baby brother is. 
  • All the Lightwood and Herondale kids meet up at Anna’s flat and hang out
  • They literally just sit around and complain about their parents to each other, and Anna gives them all great advice about life.
  • When Grace broke James’ heart, he headed straight for Anna’s flat. He didn’t know why he went to her instead of Matthew, but Anna was able to cheer him up almost immediately.
  • After that, Anna and James’ relationship strengthened and they became nearly inseparable, and James would visit Anna anytime he was feeling down.
  • Anna is super sassy to her parents, and the way she talks to Cecily drives Gabriel mad (however, he fawns over his daughter.)
  • Anna is very blunt, and she will often say things that others perceive as insulting.
  • Cecily tried to talk to her about it but Anna wouldn’t have it, saying she only spoke the truth.
  • Anna doesn’t really care what anyone else thinks of her; she dances to the sound of her own music, and she won’t let anyone else’s words or opinions change that.
  • Anna does, however, immediately jump to the defense of her friends and family. If anyone hurts her loved ones, especially Christopher, James, or Lucie, they better run because Anna will hunt them down.


I’m a huge Charles Dickens fan (I’ve read all of his books many times each,) so I tend to associate Grace with Estella from “Great Expectations.” I believe both of their characters will follow similar development arcs, but I can try to create some headcanons anyway:

  • Young Grace was absolutely devastated when her big brother Jesse died.
  • She cried for weeks and weeks on end, and Tatiana was too grief-stricken to comfort her.
  • This was around the time Grace met James, who helped her understand and move past her loss.
  • Grace secretly always admired James’ love of literature growing up, and she wished she could study books as often as he did.
  • She read every book in the old Blackthorn manor from cover to cover multiple times and also learned to appreciate the written word.
  • Grace begged Tatiana for more books, but she said no because “pretty girls had better things to do than read.”
  • This infuriated Grace, who began reading as many books as possible which she borrowed from James
  • Soon James and Grace would have these long, in-depth conversations about various classics, authors, and characters that they read about.
  • James started visiting Idris less and less, and Grace soon lost her access to his extensive library.
  • She started sneaking into Alicante to buy second-hand books, and she hid them all in her room.
  • When Jesse came back, Grace shared all of her books with him while Tatiana tried to keep him hidden.
  • Eventually, Grace grew to hate Lucie and Cordelia, especially after they “took” Jesse away with them
  • In reality, she was devastated that she was trapped alone with Tatiana again.

I hope you liked my headcanons! Please send me your theories, ideas, and headcanons, and I will post them on my blog!
