Pearl is culture, is art, is history, is beautiful, Pearl is everything. 💙💙😄😄😄

Steven: “You’re wrong! If pearls are really like you say they are, then Pearl isn’t common at all!. She trained herself to fight! She learned how to build things! And she works hard every day to be greater than she already is! That’s not common; that’s amazing!” 😄😄😄😄

Reversal of fortunes... and funerals

While going back to ch50 to see what Agni and Soma wore to Sebastian’s (staged) funeral, I noticed something….

Ch50 actually starts out with Sebastian exposing Snake’s plan to kill the earl. We get to see Snake explain how he got to the manor. First, he went to the townhouse, looking for him there but ended up confronting Soma and Agni. At first, Soma questions why he’s there, but then he goes into pal mode, saying things like (paraphrased) “You must be one of his friends. Let me tell you where he’s at. I’ll call a carriage to get you there. Here’s some food for your journey.” Meanwhile, in the background, Agni is still trying to figure out who this person is and why they are here. Soma is ignoring Agni….

But in ch126 and ch127, we have people arrive to the townhouse who are not nearly as polite as Snake. I don’t think these two new assailants are even looking for the earl (I think one of them is actually his older twin, the real Ciel… as Lord Sirius, and the other one is his butler, Lord Polaris, aka “Knife Dude”). These guys showed up to bump off the earl’s support system while the earl and his contracted demon are occupied elsewhere.

I suspect that, after leaving the townhouse, they will not go to the manor… at least not right away. They might be targeting the other P5 first, and possibly also the P4/S4, ever since they went into hiding. I’d like to see a funeral for Agni (since right after Snake is exposed they hold one for Sebastian). However, they might not have time to do anything for him right away. They could very well end up going to see what awaits them at the homes or other whereabouts of the earl’s other supporters and informants.

No one is safe. 

  • Soma is still alive, so he’s still a target.
  • Edward, who might be back at Weston (and/or the Midford household) 
  • Joanne, who might be back at Weston
  • Cheslock, who might be back at Weston
  • Clayton, who might be back at Weston
  • Redmond, Bluer, and Greenhill, who are in hiding (but Sebastian found them easily, so the sect could, too, I’m sure)
  • Violet might be safe from attack, but only as long as the sect thinks he’s dead
  • Even people like Mr. Pitt might be in serious danger, since he still has the glass originals for all those family photos. Anyone trying to cause a case of mistaken identity would want the existence of a twin to remain secret.
  • The Phantomhive servants who are at the manor
  • Sieglinde, Wolfram, Lau, Ran-Mao, Chlaus, Diedrich, etc….

So… where could the big attack be? What death event could Grell be speaking of? It could be at the manor, but I think it might be at Weston….

Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton

A biographical sketch by Georgina Schuyler, written to her niece, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton.

(Letter accompanying photography of a portrait of her namesake, Mrs. Alexander Hamilton)

37 Madison Ave

New York

June 21st 1908

My Dear Elizabeth

This is the day of your ___ and this letter is written to you—to give given to you when you are older, with the portrait of the lady for whence you are named, Elizabeth Schuyler, afterwards Mrs. Alexander Hamilton.  She was your father’s great-grandmother, and my great grandmother.  But though she lived so long ago, some of us still remember her, and all of us love her because she was so lovely, good and king; and we hope you too will love and be like her.

She was born on the 9th of August, 1757, and was the daughter of General Philip Schuyler, of Albany, and she, and her father, and mother, and brothers and sisters lived in a large house just outside the City of Albany, overlooking the Hudson River. It was called “the Pastures,” and is still standing, though the city streets are all about it now.

When this portrait was painted, in 1787, Mrs. Hamilton had been married eight years, and had three little children.  Two years later, in 1789, her husband was appointed by Washington Secretary of the Treasury.  The President and Cabinet then lived in New York City and at the Hamilton house there were dances and parties and many people coming and going—Wednesday evening was their reception evening.  Marie Antoinette, was then the Queen of France.  She wore the same kind of high head dress you see in the portrait—it was the Fashion of the day.  Mrs. Hamilton’s  older sister Angelica, Mrs. Church, had married an Englishman and lived in Paris and in London for many years.  Mr. & Mrs. Church knew many French people noblemen and ___.  Most sought refuge in England during the French Revolution; and a number of the gentlemen came to America introduced by Mrs. Church to her sister and brother-in-law.  Mrs. Hamilton was kind and hospitable to them and they needed kindness in exile from their country, sad and lonely, separated from their family.

For it was Mrs. Hamilton’s kindness and the nature of her disposition that attracted people.  She was not so very pretty—not as pretty as her older sister—but she was good tempered, and everyone liked her.  There was a young gentleman from Maryland, Mr. Tilghman, an aid de camp of General Washington, who stayed at her father’s house when she was a girl.  He writes that she had “the most good natured, dark, lovely eyes I ever saw,” and everyone one told him how sweet tempered she was.  She was also active and fearless.  They all went on a picnic near Albany; and he describes how Miss Betsey Schuyler climbed up the banks of the waterfall, and jumped from rock to rock, declining all assistance, and making merry at the fears of the other girls.

Mr. Carroll of Maryland was detained at the country place of her father, General Schuyler, at Saratoga, for a week, owing to the illness of old Mr. Benjamin Franklin. [He] writes what a pleasant week he had passed.  He was very much older than Miss Betsey, but he found her and her sister very good company, so bright and cheerful, and ready and glad to take not of older people. Miss Betsey was straight forward and simple in her manner.  One of the French gentleman speaks of her in later years—of her simplicity and adds that “she is a charming woman.”

So, when this portrait was painted, she had passed through a happy girlhood, and was most happily married. She was a devoted wife.  She appreciated her husband’s genius and she did all she possibly could to help him.  He had to work very hard to support his family (he was a lawyer by profession) and whenever possible, he was pre-occupied with public affairs.  But he, too, was kind and wished to help people when they were in trouble and so this is the story of the portrait:

The artist, Mr. Earle, had made debts he could not pay, and was put in the New York City Debtor Prison (such was the law of those days).  Mr. Hamilton was sorry for him and worked to get [him] out, and consulted his wife as to the best way of doing so.  She decided that she would dress and visit the Debtors Prison and ask for her portrait there, in a room that was set apart for Mr. Earle to paint her in.  She persuaded the ladies to do the same thing.  They also came to the prison and sat for their portraits; and son Mr. Earle had made enough money to pay his debts, get out of prison, and be a free man once more: Thanks to her we have the portrait, and the memory of her kind heart. This story was told to me by her son James, my Grandfather Hamilton, who loved to tell it of his mother.

In her later life she had great sorrows, and showed much strength of character.  Her husband’s death left her with many children to support and educate, and but little fortune with which to do so.  However, they all grew up and made their way, and then she thought of other children, poor children left without money or father to care for them, and she helped to found the first orphan asylum in New York City. She also took into her home a little orphan girl and brought her up and started her in life.  She lived to a great age.  I remember perfectly her sweet old face and her white hair under her cap as she used to sit in the ball at Nevis where now this very portrait hangs.

I am my dear little Elizabeth

Your affectionate

Georgina Schuyler

A nonmusical Sound of Music AU featuring a temp that can’t keep a position and an Alpha that can’t keep a nanny. Very much a WIP.

Where We Ought to Be by clio_jlh 

(20,144 I Explicit I Complete)

Stiles Stilinski has just been created a magician, like his mother before him and her father before her, but now he’s a little bit at loose ends.  So at the suggestion of his mentor Deaton, he takes a position with a very young alpha werewolf, Derek Hale, to protect his pack while he heads into the city in search of a mate.  That the stern Derek would be displeased by Stiles’s unorthodox methods (wolves training with hunters? unheard of!) is to be expected.  That Derek would start looking a little closer to home for his mate is more of a surprise.

The Sound of Music AU, set in modern day. But with werewolves. And no singing, dammit!

Alternate title: The Preserve is Alive(With the Sound of Howling)

Wolverston Hall by TaliskerMortem 

(39,639 I Teen I WIP)    *regency au

Eight months after the fire that killed the Countess of Beacon, Mr Stilinski is hired to tutor the Earl’s seven children. The air of neglect and decay that surrounds Wolverston Hall sets him on edge and the blank faces of the children he is charged with awaken a desperate need to remind them what love is. As for the Earl himself, Mr Stilinski isn’t entirely sure whether it is fear that causes his heart to beat harder in his chest at the sight of him… or something else. Something he is entirely unprepared for.

OR: The one in which Derek is a reclusive Earl with seven children and Isaac persuades him to hired Mr Stilinski as a tutor. Only Stiles becomes more than just a tutor to his children and Derek fears he may have become something more to him as well.
