A/N: alskgdfkl sorry this took a while qq i hit the road block for this so i’m also sorry that it is quite short and probably isn’t what you guys are expecting ^^; there’s one last part to this btw, i promise it’ll explain everything that is unanswered from here
Jungkook’s words reverberate in your mind, astoundment striking you like lightning.
“You… what?” You ask for clarification, ebullience leaving your body as if it has never been present to begin with. All you are left with is plain shock, movements desultory as you take a few steps back.
Jimin’s eyes widen at Jungkook’s proposition of a panacea, for those words are the last he thought would ever leave Jungkook’s mouth. Jimin remains niche against the wall, rising tension hitting the room in untoward waftures. The younger boy sighs and scratches the back of his neck. “I said we need to cut off what we have—whatever it is.”
“W- why?” You say a bit too desperately, feeling yourself unravel at his sharp statement. “I thought you- we had… why?”
“Julius Caesar is said to have been tall, fair and well built, with a rather broad face and keen, dark eyes. His health was sound, apart from sudden fainting spells and a tendency towards nightmares that troubled him towards the end of his life, but he twice had epileptic fits while on campaign.
He was something of a dandy, so that he not only kept himself carefully trimmed and shaved, but also, as some people have charged, depilated with tweezers. His baldness was a disfigurement which his enemies harped upon, much to his exasperation, but he used to comb the thin strands of hair forward from the crown of his head, and of all of the honors voted him by the Senate and People none pleased him so much as the privilege of wearing a laurel wreath on all occasions- he constantly took advantage of it.
His dress was, it seems, unusual: he had added wrist-length sleeves with fringes to his purple-striped senatorial tunic, which he wore not only belted but loosely belted at that- hence Sulla’s warning to the optimates: ‘Beware of that boy with loose clothes!’
The only charge ever brought against him regarding his sexual tastes was that he had been King Nicomedes’ bedmate… Licinius Calvus published the notorius verse:
The riches of Bithynia’s King
Who Caesar on his couch abused.
Dolabella called him ‘the Queen’s rival and inner partner of the royal bed,’ and the elder Curio ‘Nicomedes’ Bithynian brothel.’ Bibulus, Caesar’s colleague in the consulship, described him in his edict as ‘the Queen of Bithynia, who once wanted to sleep with a monarch, but now wants to be one.’ Cicero too not only wrote in several letters that ‘Caesar was led by Nicomedes’ attendants to the royal bedchamber, where he lay on a golden couch dressed in a purple robe, and so this descendant of Venus lost his virginity in Bithynia…’
Lastly, when Caesar’s own soldiers followed his decorated chariot in the Gallic triumph, chanting ribald songs, as they were privileged to do, this was one of them:
Home we bring our bald whoremonger;
Romans, lock your wives away!
All the bags of gold you lent him
Went his Gallic tarts to pay
And to emphasize the bad name Caesar had won for both easy virtue and adultery, the elder Curio refers to him in a speech as ‘every woman’s husband and every man’s wife.”
- The Twelve Caesars by Suetonius, published AD 121
Maggie Sawyer the smart,
tough, just beautiful, so beautiful detective who loves guns, scotch, tiramisu
which she could eat for every meal because its her happy food, and bonsai trees
which might be random but Alex finds it adorable.
Sawyer who listened to Alex with so much care and empathy during her coming out
and made sure Alex knew how she deserves to have a real, full, happy life.
who lied about her own coming out story so Alex wouldn’t be scared and so she
could have a better story to tell.
Sawyer who’s been called hard headed, insensitive, obsessed with work,
borderline sociopathic by her ex and despite all of it, is still letting herself
love and be loved.
Sawyer who deserves so much better.
Sawyer was outed to her parents at 14 and kicked out of her own house as a
result. She was probably confused, lost, alone, without any supporter in the
world but her aunt. Her own parents who she thought would always have her back
gave up on her because of the gender of the person she would fall in love with.
Maggie Sawyer had a really traumatic childhood and still managed to grow up to
be strong and loving.
doesn’t hate valentines day because it’s a manufactured holidays for patsies
but because she associated it with her absolute traumatic experience which is
completely valid. She only had a
negative reaction to Alex‘s surprise because she’s still in pain about her
Sawyer shouldn’t have to suppress this trauma for Alex, Maggie shouldn’t have to
hear her girlfriend’s sister telling her to change how she feels about this day
for Alex. Maggie shouldn’t have to apologize to Alex for being in pain.
said « this is a relationship » so Alex should have been the one
supporting her girlfriend with her trauma and thanking her for letting her believe
her coming out went well giving her the strength to come out to her own family.
world tried to take down Maggie Sawyer but Maggie Sawyer grew up to be
stronger, more loving and caring.
Sawyer deserves better. Maggie Sawyer deserves a respectful, caring, loving
relationship more than anyone.
