Das Schloss Benrath is a Baroque-style palace in Düsseldorf, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Northwestern Germany. It was erected for the Elector Palatine Charles Theodor and his wife, Countess Palatine Elisabeth Auguste of Sulzbach. Construction began in 1755 and was completed in 1770. The ensemble at Benrath has been proposed for designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
How many clothes does David keeps in his dungeon at Paradise? Wondering whether he made Elisabeth salvaged his wardrobe before boarding the Engineer's ship.
Hi! Good question!
Long blonde hair and neck porn. Please kill me with bricks.
We saw David wear a hooded cape and a dark undershirt at some point.
He also wore his tight blue suit from Prometheus.
It’s funny because just a few minutes ago he was wearing a different suit… See? A suit with orange lines. Maybe he wore both at the same time? Or he decided at the last minute to change because he hates orange. Look at his legs. My god, It’s so incredibly tight. How could he walk?
I don’t think Elizabeth really cared about clothes at that point in the movie. She was in pain and just wanted to leave. The T-shirt in The Crossing… hey maybe that was David’s T-shirt?
If there’s anything beautiful about Elisabeth, it’s that every character is left wonderfully morally grey. While other adaptations like to put the blame on Franz Joseph, Sophie etc., the musical illustrates their motivations as clearly as Elisabeth’s and is definitely realistic about Elisabeth’s own flaws.
However, the musical differs greatly from other adaptations by the introduction of one extra character-der Tod. Tod, as the embodiment of Death, could be a good character for the role of villain of the story- he takes all of Elisabeth’s loved ones, tries to seduce her away from her husband and away from life itself. Yet Elisabeth herself is attracted to death, as is clearly shown in Schwarzer Prinz and throughout the story, and in the end she chooses to go to him in Der Schleuer Fällt. The question is then, of course, what are all these characters really fighting against, besides each other?
It is obvious that all the main characters get into conflict with each other: Elisabeth is oppressed by Sophie and Franz, Franz is torn between his mother, wife and duty, Rudolf is the pawn of his parents and grandmother, and Death competes with Franz and even falls out with Elisabeth because she refuses to choose him. The main problem here is the court- the imperial court has demands and duties that these characters hate but must fulfill, or refuse to change despite them being out of date. Elisabeth likens her peers to puppets in Als Ich Tanzen Will- all of the characters in the story are being controlled by forces bigger than themselves. The question, then, is; who is the puppetmaster?
wow, you write very well and detailed! the plot is amazing too. can I request a scenario of rfa (and v + saeran if you can) being yanderes while they're dating mc?
Oh, thank you so much! So… I didn’t intend to go full yandere because I wasn’t sure I was comfortable with (not because of the theme, I just wasn’t sure if I knew how to do this), but that kept getting darker as I wrote, and it turned out really abusive and angsty. I’m not proud about Jumin and Saeyoung ones tho, they’re not that great, but I hope that’s what you wanted. :)
Whenever you hang out in public, he’ll always have an arm around your shoulder or waist
In bed, he enjoys fucking you in front of mirrors, he loves to watch himself giving you pleasure
Won’t let you cum till you tell him how great he is at everything and how no other man you’ve ever been with could ever be compared to him
He won’t forbid you of wearing certain clothes, but he won’t pretend he’s not bothered, he’ll pout and insist you have to change because he was the only one that deserves to see you at your best
If he’s not able to convince you, expect to find dark hickys all over your neck, collarbones and thighs after sex, that way you can’t wear low cleavage tops and short skirts
He’s not afraid of getting into fights if someone approaches you, fuck the scandals, you’re his
You always have a seat reserved on the front row during all of his musicals, and he makes sure the seats by your sides are empty, he doesn’ t want anyone distracting you from giving all your attention to him when he’s performing
At first, he would never let you be photographed or give interviews, HE is the public person here and anything concerning your relationship would be answered exclusively by him
He used to say this was for your protection, but you knew he just didn’t want you getting the same kind of attention he gets
But then, he realized he enjoyed to show you off to media, so he’d spend days training you to say the right things and find the right clothes, so he’d dress you up like a doll
He was determined to turn you to a modern day princess and your relationship should always come across as a fairytale in the public eye
But he started actually believing in this, so any attitude of yours that didn’t meet his expectations would be harshly scolded
You didn’t feel human anymore, everything you did felt so robotic, made only for other people to see
He was the actor here, but you felt you were the one always pretending to be this perfect princess
Neither of you knew what was real now, not even your love
He will hold hands with you in public and tight the grip everytime some guy (and girls, eventually) look at you and smile
In bed, sometimes his insecurities get the best of him and he can’t hold an erection for long, your warm touch makes him lose control of his body immediately
You would always reassure him it was fine, the sex was still great, anyways, and you loved him so much
But he didn’t like your tone. To his ears, you sounded like you felt pity for him, and he hated!
Still, you always managed to praise him a lot, and you just hoped he could notice that every moan and compliment you gave were sincere
He could almost read people’s mind on the streets when you went out. “What is she doing with him? Poor girl can get someone so much better” He was always wondering when you would realize that too
He wasn’t strong enough to fight for you, so the only thing he could do was make himself weaker and weaker, so you would feel obligated to take care of him
So he’ll hurt himself everytime you get late from work/school, everytime you talk to another guy, everytime he feels you’re not giving him love and attention enough
He hates your pity, but if this will make you stay, he doesn’t care
Trust always was a low point in this relationship, even though she would never admit to you and to herself
You were always so sweet to everybody, sweet… or were you just flirting to everybody?
She gets it, ok? You’re a little younger than her, you’re pretty and bubbly, there isn’t a single person who wouldn’t fall desperately for you like she did
But she knew those guys would be coming to the cafe just to see you, they didn’t care about coffee at all
So hiring another person and putting you on paperwork felt like a natural move to protect you and her feelings for you
You missed talking to people, seeing their smile everytime you would hand over their delicious and beautifully made drinks
But you would never complain, you didn’t want to upset her, she would be so cold when she was upset and the sex would feel so awful
Because this would be clearly about her pleasure only, and sometimes you could swear your frustration would turn her on more and more
In fact, making you feel frustrated was an habit now. She would make you overwork so you’d always look frustrated, stressed out and tired. If you’d be like that, you wouldn’t look that cute to other people now, right?
She became what once hurt herself so much, but she couldn’t even realize it, she just wanted to be the only one to see your true beauty and sweetness that would be hidden behind those dark circles under your eyes and the ill aspect of your skin.
You didn’t remember the last time you went out by yourself, if he wasn’t with you, at least two bodyguards would
His arm is always around your waist, he wouldn’t let his guards down not even around his own father
He is very possessive and demanding on bed and this is a huge turn on for you at first
But you could always tell when something went wrong at the office, because he would take it out on you very roughly,. Most of the times, you would feel the pleasure through the pain, sometimes you wouldn’t, it was just that scary pain
In the beginning, he was very understanding that you had different habits from his, but it got really perceptive when he was slowly pushing his eating and sleeping habits onto you. It was for your own good, he would say.
Controlling you was for your own good, he would say
Things started to get weirder when you went out by yourself for a couple hours. A friend of yours was in town, she was going through a tough time and could use a friend now, she seemed so sad and afraid, you felt that taking the bodyguards could be intimidating
When you returned home, you never seen his eyes that dark and never heard his voice this low and husky. “Where were you?” “Why didn’t you take my calls?” “Are you leaving?” “Are you trying to escape like Elisabeth did that time?” Oh no, not this again…
He got you a bracelet with a tracking device, the bodyguards got very detailed instructions about never leaving you alone if he was not around, a female bodyguard was hired exclusively to watch over for you in the bathroom, that was the level of insanity going around that penthouse
You and Elisabeth were his precious little kittens, but if you’d gonna behave like an wild animal, he’d need to tame you at all costs
He is not too clingy in public, but he’s always by your side or a little behind you
In bed, he will make you scream his name out loud and tell you’re his, only his
If he was too busy, he would hire Vanderwood to keep an eye on you when you’d go out
As much as you enjoyed Vanderwood’s company, it was uncomfortable, and you told him. He didn’t like it, but dismissed his services on a very passive-agressive way.
“I’m just worried about your security, MC, it’s a shame you don’t care about yourself as much as I do… but I won’t tell you how to live your life”
Still, he needed to know if you were always ok, so he attached GPS devices on your clothes and would always hack security cameras on the streets to watch you
He also installed cameras and wires at your apartment, but he didn’t tell you.
Hacking your laptop and phone started as a hobby , but quickly became a habit, he’d love to trace patterns in your interests
But everytime you ‘d search something he considered inappropriate (like photos of that cute guy on that boy band) he would take down the internet at your home or send you a virus, this also worked as an excuse to go to your place or make you go to his,
This happened so often that you felt you were actually living together, but not in a very natural way
He got obsessive about your online activities, he felt he could know you better like this than actually talking to you.
Everybody is more honest when nobody is watching, and although you were so special, you weren’t any different . Watching you like this would make sure you would never lie to him.
He just wanted to be the one who knows you the best, it was the least he could do after pushing you away like that. Now he wanted you closer as possible.
None of the tasks he did for his previous job felt filthier like this one, and he got surprised how much this satisfied him
Like Saeyoung, not clingy in public
But he showers you in compliments in front of others, and gets slightly angry if people don’t respond in a way he considers adequate
Even when you don’t take his compliments as he desires, he will get frustrated. “You need to start seeing yourself as the magnificent person you are, MC. It really bothers me you’re uncapable of”
He puts you on a pedestal, and everytime you do something that doesn’t go according to how he pictured you should do, he will scold you for not reaching your full potential
Takes tons of pictures of you doing several activities during the day, and sometimes, he takes pictures of your reactions when he touches your body and praises you, those ones became a collection
A very prestigious art critic pointed out how the model would look despaired in some of the pictures, which V hated
Now he was determined to only get your joy in his photos, so he would create every possible situation that could make you smile. But still, nothing was good enough for him, you never looked happy enough, and he would be very clear about how frustrated he was with you
You watched as your boyfriend was only seeing you through pictures, you didn’t feel like a real person who could show her emotions genuinely
But what hurt the most was that you didn’t see your boyfriend’ eyes anymore, they were always behind the camera lens
He’s too shy to show affection in public, but he’ll walk with beside you, glaring at people like a hound dog
In bed, he is very instable. Sometimes he treats you like a porcelain doll and touches you like you’re gonna break, he feels so guilty for everything he did, so treating you like this feels like he’s finally doing the right thing
Other times, he’ll be rough, very rough. You’ll have dark bruises due to hard hickys all over your body, he enjoys tasting your blood, he says is the most delicious thing he ever tasted
He can be like this out of the bed too, the shy and quiet Saeran or the loud one who’ll snap at you over the silliest things. You never know which Saeran you’re gonna face
He hates it being like that, he feels like shit and knows this is too much for someone so bright and lovely as you to handle.
But he’s so afraid you’ll see you’re making a mistake being with him, it’s probably a matter of time for you to notice you’re too good to him
So, before you realize that, he has to find a way for you not to feel so good, he needs to lower you to his level
His snaps will be more aggressive, he’ll tell you how useless you are at everything, you’re stupid, futile, you’re so lucky that he’s patient with you, you ‘d never find a guy who could bare you like he does
And slowly you start believing in that, you never noticed how much you and him are alike. Yes, you’re lucky you have him, if you two are so wrong for the rest of the world, at least you can be wrong together.
He feels like shit, the only way to make you stay is if you feel exactly like him
Hiiiiiii! So… I was thinking… Maybe I should give you a little taste of how I write and weeeeeeeell, here we go
RFA trying to cheer you up on a sad day, they’re focused on their jobs and you miss them. You’re having a bad day and you don’t want them to know that you’re feeling sad but they instantly notice ->
-He’s a smol sensitive bean -like me- and he’s head over heels in love with you.
-He’s always attentive and caring unless he’s playing LOLOL.
-Lately he’s been focusing a lot more on studying and LOLOL too, and you’re glad he’s putting so much effort on his future so you always care for him, make him some healthy food to eat at uni and stick lovely, funny and encouraging post-it everywhere for him to feel loved every day.
-So, today you try to hide the fact that you’ve been feeling sad because you know it’s just a bad day and you don’t want him to worry too much and stress for no reason. The last thing you want is to be the reason why he fails his grades.
-However, as soon as you arrive home from work/study/whatever, he notices something’s going on and he immediately leaves what he’s doing to be with you.
-You’re always so cheerful and positive that he instantly starts worrying when he sees you’re feeling down:
“Is it something I did? Is it something I said? Did something bad happened?I can’t let my girl be sad!!”
-You tell him that it’s just a bad day but he’s too worried now to leave it be.
-He asks you what can he do to cheer you up, maybe he even tries to crack up some bad jokes.
-He cooks Omurice for youwith happy ketchup faces all around. He brings you chocolate and ice cream and whatever you want Jeez… he would be so sweet and warm and cozy asjkhdsad
-He’s SUPER attentive and cuddly for the rest of the day (and allows you to see the show or movie you want, he’s even up to scary movies if that’s what make you happy!)
-He tries to maintain a reasonable work schedule so he can give you all the quality time you need, nothing he wouldn’t do for his princess.
-He’s been a little too occupied with practicing lately because he was preparing for a quite difficult character and he wanted to do a perfect performance.
-You miss him, of course, but no matter what you try to be supportive and cheer him up every day by telling him how awesome and talented he is, you also help him practicing his lines if he needs it.
-Today you’re not as bright and positive as you usually are and you don’t compliment him as you always do when he sends you a selfie from his workout session that morning, that’s when he notices that something’s going on with you.
-He immediately calls you: Hello my princess~ Do you want to go out tonight? You obviously agree and you start to feel a bit better, you’re going to have a date with the incredibly handsome love of your life, how could you not cheer up? For God’s sake.
-He sets a romantic date, he compliments you a lot, he gives you all the attention you need that nightand takes you home with him to kiss and hug the sadness out of you… (͡• ͜ʖ ͡•) He unleashes The beast and you are happy for the rest of your life, believe me.
-She’s always too busy, she can’t even have a good sleep schedule, how could she find time to be with you? Oh, but she tries, and that’s all that matters to you~
-BUT lately she’s been busy even on weekends and that means you can’t see her unless you take your ass to the company to give her some healthy food and coffee (she really needs it and she’s ultra grateful she haves you)
-So today you go to the office to give her her daily dose of food and coffee, she doesn’t notice at first that you’re feeling a little down today but as you’re about to leave she does, there’s no way she doesn’t notice your pouty faces and she instantly starts to feel bad with herself.
-She hugs you tight and gives you a slow kiss, then she smiles and assures you she will talk with Ms. Han to ask for some free time to spend with you and you cheer up a little bit.
-She comes home earlier than usual and you two prepare dinner together, romantic music in the background. You laugh and kiss all night long.
-When you finish eating you cuddle each other on the sofa while watching any Zen’s movie she likes the most that day.
-Yay! There you are, two happy beans cuddling and loving each other \ (•◡•) /
-He’s been busy with the company projects and he has to travel a lot lately so that means you don’t get to see him often.
-There’s weeks that you two barely speak due to the time zone difference. He’s stressed and he misses you and Elisabeth the 3rd a lot, he apologizes every time he gets to talk with you.
-He’s deeply worried about you even if he doesn’t show much, he’s scared one day you’ll leave him, he knows he should find more time to be with you but these weeks have been horrible and busy for you two.
-You miss him like crazy and you’re kind of stressed with work too. Today you’re feeling down and sad, so when you talk with him that night and he notices you’re not as positive and cheerful as always he starts worrying a lot.
-He immediately tells his private pilot to prepare everything to fly back home and calls Jaehee to re-arrange the whole schedule so he can be with you a couple of days.
-He arrives at 4AM, you’re sleeping and he doesn’t want to wake you up so he takes Elisabeth in his arms and sits besides you in bed, admiring the two loves of his life with a peaceful smile on his face.
-He wakes you up in the morning with kisses: Good morning Kitten, I’ve missed you a lot ~ he has prepared breakfast and many other things (͡• ͜ʖ ͡•)and you’re instantly feeling happier than ever and that makes him feel confident and happy too.
-You spend the rest of the day cuddling and talking, drinking wine and making love.
-This little monkey has been overly stressed with work lately, he wants to keep up with everything and that also includes rebuilding his relationship with Saeran, make time for you and the rfa…
-You’re dead worried for him and you’re always trying to help him, even with the smallest tasks, so he can relax a little and take a nap if he feels too tired. You try to make him eat healthy, at least one meal a day, and hug him and kiss him often, and sometimes you also try to make him laugh a little to encourage him.
-Your profession allows you to work from home, that’s why you can spend some time with him, basically to take care he doesn’t die, but these last days you had to go to the office to organize and arrange some things. You obviously miss him a lot during that time.
-BUT that means that when you finally have time to go to his house you find out that he’s a total mess: no sleep, no healthy meals… just non stop work. He says he wanted to take that time to advance some work so he could be able to be with you a little more.
-Today has been a bad day and you’re sad and tired and seeing him like that it’s painful so you feel sadder and when he said that… that’s it, you had too much, you hug him and you try to hold on your tears with your face buried on his neck but he instantly notices you’re not okay.
-Hey! Little alien, what’s up? I’m here my love, I’m okay~(yES!! I fervently believe he would call you little alien, fIGHT mE) and that’s what you need to start crying and you’re there like: B-bu…but… you… I’m worried… I don’t want… get sick… *sobbing and hiccuping* You know what I mean!!
-That makes him feel warm and loved inside and he hugs you tighter and he tells you how much he loves you and finally he decides to take a couple of days to rest and be with you, cuddling and laughing and watching some crappy tv shows.
So… that’s it! lmao i’m so nervous right now…Tell me what you think, let me know if you think there’s something I can improve on (and sorry if I made some typos or any other mistakes, I try my best ;;) aaaaand if you liked it feel free to request your own scenarios, imagines, one-shots…
That same year - 1882 - during a visit to his mother´s native Altenburg, Konstantin met Princess Elisabeth Auguste Marie Agnes, daughter of Prince Moritz of Saxe-Altenburg and his wife Auguste, formerly a Princess of Saxe-Meiningen. Born on Wednesday, January 25, 1865, in Meiningen, the sixteen-year-old Princess was a slim young woman with a long neck and narrow waist, and light brown hair coiled in a fringe atop her head. The Grand Duke´s mother, Alexandra Iosifovna, pushed the pair toward marriage; Princess Elisabeth seemed amenable enough to the idea, but Konstantin Konstantinovich was less certain. It took nearly two year for the young Grand Duke to finally work up the courage to propose. He could have remained a bachelor, but family pressure on him was enormous; by this time, his brother Nicholas Konstantinovich had been living in disgrace in exile for ten year, and there was little doubt that his father´s estates would devolve upon him - a fact that would necessitate heirs. Expectation may have pushed the Grand Duke toward a proposal. In the end, it is difficult to say what his true feelings about Elisabeth may have been.
CAN YOU WRITE A MYSTIC MESSENGER THING WHERE THE MAIN CHARACTER IS JUMINS LITTLE SISTER AND ENDS UP FALLING FOR ONE OF THE OTHER GUYS AND ITS ADORABLE BUT JUMIN IS PISSED????
Hi there beautiful! :3

And thank you for requesting
JUMIN’S LITTLE SISTER FALLS IN LOVE WITH THE RFA BOYS.
She’s in love with this little sweetheart, what can she possibly do? She can’t help it, but really… Who on earth could be able to resist that blushing mess of a boy? Not her, at least.
She loved his innocence, his honesty, the way he could praise her and not sound like he was kissing her ass, he truly think she was the more beautiful girl on the galaxy. He was humble and sweet and warm and everything she could possibly want in a partner.
But she was shy af too, which meant that they both were two adorable cinnamon rolls with no skills when it came to flirting whatsoever. And when I say no skills I mean none. Zero.
Even Jumin catched what was going on between them before the two love birds did, and, of course, he was pissed as hell. He wondered what she could possibly find so attractive in a gamer boy with bleached hair, like, come on, what on earth was she thinking about when she fell in love with a boy who drinks twenty chocolate milk’s bricks to avoid passing out from drinking caffeine? For God’s sake.
He truly tried to understand, he tried. But she was his little sister, and he would protect her no matter what. Although… You know, maybe Yoosung wasn’t a bad option at all, but he would not say that out loud until he saw her with a white dress and a house bigger than the Yankee stadium.
Not even Jumin can resist this sweetheart.
She loved him with all her might, his silly jokes, his weird costumes, his geekyness, she loved everything about that red mess of a boy. And Saeyoung couldn’t believe such a woman like her would be wanting to spend her life with him, and neither did Jumin.
He’ll be damned. Oh boy, he truly will. Seeing how Saeyoung treated his Elisabeth the 3rd was enough for him to oppose to their relationship. The first time he saw how she blushed and how her eyes sparkled from adoration when she was with him almost brought him to a manic attack.
“WHAT THE HELL COULD YOU POSSIBLY EXPECT FROM THE WRECK OF A HUMAN HE IS!?!?”
“Yeah, I agree with him, what?” Saeyoung asked the same question.
So she answered the same to the both of them “This wreck of a human is whom I want to spend the rest of my life with, so better get used to the idea”And Saeyoung cried and Jumin scoffed, irritated with her stubborness and her bad taste.
But at the end he was happy for them, in the very bottom of his cold heart he knew his little sister would be better off with him than with anyone else, he trusted the red haired weirdo, but he would never came to admit so. Not ever.
Okay, I don’t know who would be more pissed of those two… Mr. Handsome or the trust fund kid. Zen would be like “Where did you came from, princess? Are you sure you’re not adopted?” and she would shook his head and giggle, sickening his brother to death.
Jumin couldn’t understand his little sister, nuh-uh, and he tried, but he just couldn’t get it. He told her a couple of times, he asked her if she was sure “I know he’s handsome and… well, even a little talented, I get that, but how can you share a life with someone who’s actually dating a mirror?” Jumin asked, voice charged with disapproval.
She chuckled and took Jumin’s hands on her own “Brother, you know nothing” She said tenderly “He’s the sweetest, most caring man alive, he’s a true blue prince from a fairytale and I want to marry him” She said, unable to hide the wide smile on her face.
He scoffed, annoyed with her words, but nodded anyway. At the end of the day, he was happy to know his sister was in such good hands.
KISSES FROM YOOSUNG FOR YOU!!!!!!
just shhh I love him and I needed to use this gif asap
If You're Gonna Be the Death of Me, That's How I Wanna Go. Viktuuri
Summary: “I know you,” Viktor remarks to the man in his mirror, the dark-haired, dark-eyed creature standing by his shoulder. He turns, but predictably the lavish hotel room behind him is devoid of anyone else.
Viktor turns back, holds the man’s enigmatic gaze. “You’ve been following me since childhood, Dark Prince. Why are you hiding yourself now?”
It takes a moment for Death to speak up, and when he does, his voice has that same quiet musicality that had bewitched Viktor when he was younger. “I didn’t want to interfere,” he says. “I don’t know if I can trust myself around you.”
(Elisabeth AU where Yuuri is Death, stalking promising young skater Viktor throughout his life.)
