Chubby Hubby, Death by Chocolate, Lemon-Lime Sorbet,

a body image/self esteem headcanon.

Sexy and he knows it, definitely knows how to use it to his advantage. That said, the only compliments he would actually feel flattered by are from those he cares about…


an indulgence/guilty pleasure headcanon.

Definitely Sentai media. It’s the one hobby that wouldn’t fit his image, so he keeps it hidden…


a sexual/NC-17 headcanon (alt: a secret(s) h/c).

Has a hard time reconciling that fact that sex can be intimate… If one were to have sex with him romantically, it would throw him off…

Marie Thérèse Charlotte (19 December 1778 - 19 October 1851), the eldest daughter and only surviving child of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette, passed away only three days after the 58th anniversary of her mother’s execution. 

MAY SHE, A TRUE DAUGHTER OF FRANCE, REST IN PEACE.

As was most natural, the queen and himself fully shared the ardent wishes of the nation that the expected child should prove an heir to the throne; and he consequently feared that, should it not be so, the disappointment might produce an injurious effect on the mother’s health; or, should their hopes be realized, that the excessive joy might be equally dangerous. With a desire, therefore, to avoid exposing her to either shock in the first moments of weakness, he forbade any announcement of the sex of the child being made to any one but himself. The instant that the child was born, he hastened to the bedside to judge for himself whether she could bear the news. Presently she came to herself; and it seemed to her that the general silence indicated that she had become the mother of a second daughter. But she desired to be assured of the fact. “See,” said she to Louis, “how reasonable I am. I ask no questions.” And Louis, who from joy was scarcely able to contain himself, seeing her freedom from agitation, thought he might safely reveal to her the whole extent of their happiness. He called out, so as to be heard by the Princess de Guimenée, who still held the post of governess to the royal children, and who had already exhibited the child to the witnesses in the antechamber, and was now awaiting his summons at the open door, “My lord the dauphin begs to be admitted.” The Princess de Guimenée brought “my lord the dauphin” to his mother’s arms, and for a few minutes the small company in the room gazed in respectful silence while the father and mother mingled tears of joy with broken words of thanksgiving.
