Probable contemporary manuscript of Elizabeth of York and Henry VII. Unfortunately, I cannot find any other detail on it besides that it’s housed at the British Library Illuminated Manuscripts Collection.
I love how they’re side-eyeing each other and look like they’re about to fight to the death for the throne.
the picture on her phone a few days after they part ways. Not for good, of

Being in separate cities is hard. Sleeping in separate beds, in separate
apartments, cramming entire weeks of love and adventures into a few days is

She just misses him. Misses the brush of his mouth against her ear, the
scrape of his stubble on her cheek, the rumble of his laughter as they avoid
another pack of tourists on the sidewalk. She misses the way his fingers
tighten on her hips when she stops suddenly, to avoid a roadblock or just
because she wants to have him come closer. She misses the way he lights up when
she suggests doing something new with him.
But for now, she has the picture (and a dozen more just like it), has the

I honestly don’t get why people are boycotting Doctor Strange over one character being made white? I mean like sure whitewashing is bad and blah blah blah. But the story is going to be amazing. And the visual absolutely spectacular. The story of Stephen Strange and the Mystic Arts is wonderful, and personally one of my favorite told by marvel. The changing of one character to being white, while yes not exactly a good thing, shouldn’t be blown out of proportion like it has been.
P.S: I am not racist, I simply like Doctor Strange. Maybe get educated on what racism actually is. (=^･^=)

Ms Byanyima was found out as she tried to change the black-market notes into sterling at the airport.
“The policeman looked at me crying and saw I was an innocent young girl,” she says, chuckling softly now about the ordeal. “He tore up the money and advised me never to get any except from a proper bank.Of course I laughed: in Uganda you couldn’t go to a bank and get currency.” [x]
