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”

does anyone else have those m/f ships where, like, yeah, you ship it because it’s what the female character wants, but in a way where you are always ready to murder the unworthy male character at a moment’s notice if he puts a single toe out of line?

Carlos: okay, you guys, how do I ask a girl out?
Ben: Roses are red, violets are blue. Guess what? My bed has room for two.
Carlos: OH MY GOD-

“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.”
