chapter length and warnings: 11.3k (what is life), smut, swearing, drinking, vandalism, and violence/abuse. please don’t read if that makes you uncomfortable. overall this chapter is a lot more heavy-going than most but I hope you like it!! :-)
GUYS HOLY CRAP THE MOST AMAZING THING JUST HAPPENED
So we’re doing some construction on my house, which was made at some point during the Victorian Era, when we found a christmas card from 1883 trapped inside the outer layer of my bedroom wall, behind the skirting!!
THIS ENTIRE TIME THERE’S BEEN A 132 YEAR OLD VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS CARD IN MY BEDROOM??? HOLY CRAP???
In 1883 Canada had literally been a country for less than two decades, and this card is ridiculously well-preserved! You have no idea how much i’m freaking out over this
The message says “With much love and best wishes from the Bickell/Biekell/Beckell family (writing unclear), xmas, 1883.”
