Do you ever realize how lucky we are that we found the tv shows we watch and the fandoms that come with them? How lonely and miserable we’d be if after watching an episode we’d just think to ourselves how cute a couple is and wouldn’t be able to go online and spam everyone about it?

The Tudor era is simply is this - it is a most glorious and wonderful soap opera.
— 

David Starkey, summing up why history students tend to be continually drawn to the Tudors.

Everyone is always plotting and scheming against each other. People are getting beheaded left and right. Sex. Adultery. Lies. Fake pregnancies. Multiple marriages. Divorces.

(Queen Mary was once mad at her council because they wouldn’t let her execute her own sister. It’s mental.)

It’s like Game of Thrones without the dragons, basically. 

I imagine how weird it must be for the citizens of Earth C to know about their gods and live among them, like “ Oh you know our beloved godness Terezi Pyrope? I saw her last week, she was licking the logo of a CrockerCorp building”

On some beautiful summer days I look out of my window, see how much the sun is shining, how blue the sky is, how happy people are playing outside.
Then I close my curtains so I can see the screen better.

“Diana would spot the funniness in any situation and if appropriate she would rock with laughter. If the situation called for more control she was even more prone to explode with laughter. She could not allow the absurdity of rigid self-discipline to undermine her enjoyment of the joke. She never had time for the pompous and always appreciated the ridiculous.”

Imagine that you are best friends with Jane foster. So when Thor comes crashing down to earth and all that random romance happens, you get invited to their wedding in Asgard. It is there that you meet the Royal Family, including Loki (because let’s say in this universe Loki didn’t do any of the stuff he did to fall off the bridge, because why not?).

You join the Family at the high table and while having a perfectly reasonable interrogation of the Royal Family(Jane only deserves the best). Loki, deciding to live up to his title of the God of Mischief, turns your drink into a snake (constrictor). What Loki doesn’t realise is that you love snakes and therefore you start cooing at it like a normal person would a baby or puppy. Loki and everyone else is rather confused (apart from Jane who’s debating if it’s too late to throw you off a cliff because you do this kind of thing far too often).
