letter chairs

I purpose [Jack] shall go to Britain & there be first initiated at Winchester which I am told has greatly retrieved its character for Learning & discipline & from thence to such University as my friends who are better Judges than I am shall advise, among whom I am permitted to number Your Excellency & if nothing very cross interposes to hinder, either Jack or I or both will go to Augustine before he goes to England, but the Monkey insists upon being Major of the Clyster pipe

Henry Laurens to James Grant, in a letter dated November 24, 1770

There are many things i have to say about this

- Henry calls John a monkey 

-John still wants to be a doctor

- THE MOST EXCITING PART (for me at least, just let me fangirl) : So he’s talking about Winchester College which is exciting because I go to college……in Winchester (okay I don’t go to Winchester College as it’s all boys and private). 

- Also my brother goes to Bath Uni and I know most of the Laurenses went there at least once so every time I go I low-key fangirl because I’m a nerd.

A/N: This was requested a while ago. I’m sorry that it took me so long to writ this. After this request I’m going to post one for Donald and another part of my ongoing series in a few days.

Request:Reader is Banner’s daughter, she lives with her grandmother and nobody knows that she exists, except Tony who is like an uncle to her.           


Your palms were sweating as you were coming closer to the Avengers tower. Moving the none existing wrinkles on your shirt for the fifteenth time. As you opened the door you headed to the front desk. You tried not to look like you were in shock, trying to act normal. Approaching to the desk you pulled out the folded envelope from your pocket. The young woman smiled at you and politely asked you do you have an appointment.

Words: ~ 1600  || Fanfiction Link

Fiction of the Iron Dragon (or, Secret Art of the Iron Dragon)

Levy was undeniably excited about her creative writing course. It was an invitation-only class, and invitations were only issued to students in their second or third year at Magnolia University who had demonstrated a talent for and an interest in writing during a prior year. Levy had always been a shoo-in, along with her best friend Lucy, but she hadn’t fully believed she’d get in until the letter from the Chair of the English Department had arrived in the mail over the summer.

Levy and Lucy arrived early for the class and grabbed good spots by the windows not too far from the front. There was only one other student in the room, a guy a little older than they were who looked like he’d probably just stayed after an earlier class. They assumed that he would be heading out as soon as more of their own classmates arrived. Nothing about his multiple piercings, sleeveless navy T-shirt, or elaborate black Mohawk suggested an honours English student. He eyed them as they came in, but then went back to his book.

The rest of the students arrived in twos and threes, and Lucy eventually noticed that she’d lost her friend’s attention. Levy kept looking back at Black Mohawk.

“What’s up, Levy? I’m sure he’ll figure it out once the class starts. Why do you keep staring at him?”

“I’m not staring,” Levy replied, frowning. “It’s more that… I recognize him now, and I feel kind of weird that I didn’t say hi when we walked in.”

“Um, he kind of stands out—how come you only remember him now?”

Vocaloid Song Master List

EDIT: This has been updated! …Again! As per the usual I’ve gone through and added all the new songs I’ve happened to stumble across and ended up liking. I’ve put stars next to the new songs in case you wanted to look at only the added ones! I hope you enjoy!

Seeing as this is only months after the last time I updated, there aren’t as many new songs as last time. The last time I updated it had probably been around a year since I last touched the list, so…yeah. Not as much new content this time, but I figured it would be good to update this before it became to tedious to do so ^^’

I actually made this for my good friend Blacklands, but I figured, hey, if you guys want some good Vocaloid tunes to listen to and don’t know where to start, here you go! Now you know all the stuff I jam to on a daily basis.

Inspiration for everything I do usually comes from listening to Vocaloid music. Hollah.

IMPORTANT: Sooo tumblr is being stubborn and refusing to show all of the links I spent hours putting together, so I decided to put this whole word document in my stash on DeviantART. If you’re lazy and don’t want to go through the effort of looking up these songs, my stash has all of the links attached. This time I didn’t go through and check all of the links to see if they’re broken or not, seeing as that’s like 200-300 songs I have to go through…a very, very long process. So! If you click on a link and it no longer works, please let me know and I will fix it ASAP.
Here’s the link: http://sta.sh/079mmjr50yr

Well…here we go, then!

Gossip Girl Positivity Days: DAY 5 FAVORITE OTP: Blair Cornelia Waldorf & Charles Bartholomew Bass

In the face of true love, you don’t just give up, even if the object of your affection is begging you to.

Don’t you understand? I’ll always be here. I don’t want you going anywhere, I couldn’t bare it. So whatever you want to do to yourself, please don’t do that to me.

I want you to be happy. However that’s achieved.

You are all I ever wanted. I love you. I love every part of you.

What we have is a great love. It’s complicated. Intense. All-consuming. No matter what we do and how much we fight, it’ll always pull us in.

The only thing that has ever been real is me and you.

bubblebursted  asked:

Kisses him all over his face. ❝ Buongiorno, Rohan. How are you today ? ❞ 

Personality switch M!A

A soft pink blush blossoms over high cheekbones at the sudden onslaught of affection. What leaves slightly parted blue painted lips are not a set of harsh words, a scoff, or even a threat promising a slow and painful end. But an honest to god airy and high pitched giggle. Slim digits move to cup the Italian’s cheeks and bring his actions to a stand still, a thumb brushing over the pink birthmarks under sparkling gem like eyes, before bringing their lips together in a kiss.

                 “I’m feeling absolutely wonderful now that you’re here, bello~
