“Welcome to the first annual meeting of people with slightly strange names. Let’s go around and introduce ourselves. My name is Thierry and I suffer from constant hesitation from teachers who can’t decide if they’re looking for a girl or a guy.”
“I’m Emilie with an I-E and I’ve had official awards with my name misspelled on them.”
“Hi, I’m Elisabeth with an S and while I go by Elisa, when I spell it the way my name is actually spelled, people pronounce it uh-LEE-suh.”
“I’m Richard. My name isn’t actually weird but people haven’t stopped calling me Dick since the sixth grade.”
Chateau de Brumagne was built halfway the 18th
century in classicist style. Characteristic for this style is the rather sober
appearance on the outside, which is countered by the sophisticated finishings
on the inside. A consuming fire in 2001 destroyed most of this finishing. The
oak panelling in several rooms was burnt to a cinder and the wallpaintings by
Piat Sauvage were washed away by the subsequent extinguishing waters. The
beautiful, detailed stucco by the famous Moretti brothers, dating back to 1760,
however is still visible under the fire damage. The castle that was owned by
several big names in Belgium’s political history, was also a favourite refuge
for the late King Albert I and his wife Queen Elisabeth. During the interbellum
they stayed here on multiple occasions. The king, a passionate rock climber,
fell to his death in 1934 in the vicinity of this castle.
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
a/n: this is actually imagine length, i apologize!!
it didn’t feel good. watching jeff go down like that. you often spent the majority of games you went to holding the hem of your skinner jersey tightly, your head spinning with worry. you and jeff had been together for close to two years and you’d been a hockey fan for even longer, but you hadn’t quite gotten used to the feelings of anxiety that came with having someone you loved out there on the ice.
The “White Lady” is a ghostly apparition of a woman dressed all in white, who is said to appear whenever a descendant of the House of Habsburg is about to die.
According to folklore, she was seen at the Hofburg Palace in Vienna the night before Marie Antoinette was executed. She was also reported to have been seen by some near Mayerling, where crown Prince Rudolf committed suicide, and by his mother, Empress Elisabeth, shortly before she was assassinated.
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?
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.
Maria Theresa was the eldest daughter of Holy Roman Emperor
Charles VI and his wife, Elisabeth Christine of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel. Fearing that he would not produce a surviving
son, Charles reformed Salic Law to allow a female ruler with the Pragmatic
Sanction of 1713. Thus, Maria Theresa
was born as the heir to the Hapsburg throne.
At the age of 18, Maria Theresa married Francis Stephen of
Lorraine. The couple eventually had 16
children, 10 of whom survived into adulthood.
Maria Antonia, better known as Marie Antoinette, was the couple’s
In October of 1740, Charles VI died and Maria Theresa
ascended to the throne. Maria Theresa had
little education and inherited a financially strained country. She faced resistance from European leaders
who had previously agreed to her father’s Pragmatic Sanction. The King of Prussia soon invaded
Austria starting the War of the Austrian
Succession. The war ended in 1748 with the Austrian loss of Silesia and some Italian
Despite this rocky start, the hallmark of Maria Therea’s
rule is her domestic reform. She doubled the state revenue, created a
council of advisers, promoted vaccination, and instituted a form of universal
primary education. A devout Catholic,
Maria Theresa was tolerant of Orthodox Christians but harsh towards Protestants
and Jews in the early part of her reign though she later softened. She increased the size of the military and by
the end of her life, the Holy Roman Empire was thriving.
