“I am all of the characters I’ve ever played, and I am none of them at the same time.” — Tom Hiddleston

Thy due, from me, Is tears, and heavy sorrows of the blood; Which nature, love, and filial tenderness, Shall, O dear father, pay thee plenteously: My due, from thee, is this imperial crown; Which, as immediate from thy place and blood, Derives itself to me. Lo, here it sits …

Hiddlesweek: Day Two

Favorite Outfit!

Now, I could easily give a list of every color that Tom looks absolutely stunning in, but I find that my favorite outfit- or perhaps costume -of his is his Prince Hal ensemble. The trousers. The boots. The chain mail. The armor. It’s too much, and in this particular picture, the lighting, and that incredibly gorgeous horse he’s riding (and the barding!) make this particular costume my favorite! It causes Bonnie Tyler’s ‘Holding out for a Hero’ to enter my head every time I see it.

Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?

And may I take a moment to obsess over the horse’s bridle as well? And it’s mane? And Tom’s hair?

Henry IV Part 1 (as Terrible Meme Poetry)

my nayme is hal and wen it’s nite
or wenn the moone is shining brite

even if i change abruptly
i will impress while he’s alyve
Henree four, meet Henree fiyve

My dear Hal,

you look absolutely delicious all wet and rumpled. Your hands are the most beautiful ones I ever saw. All slender, with delicate fingers and so long. And I’d love to lick that throat of yours. Touch that bulging vein with my tongue. You are sexy beyond description and make me think about debauchery things. My mind wanders to places that make me equally wet as you are. You are really filthy and dirty. And I don’t mean that in a good way. The mud is coming of in pieces from your skin. Please take a bath in something else than wine or ale. I’d help you with that.
