“I cannot do this without the council’s support.”

- “You have it.”

The Lord Regent and the First Minister. A litte something from my s3!AU for #team trevilieu

Do you really believe that you are qualified to dirty my dagger? (Wu Zetian)

trevilieu modern au: Richelieu

“In politics, the choice is rarely between the good and the evil. It is between the worse and the worst among evils” — Niccolò Machiavelli

based on this headcanon


Don’t worry, Armand. Milady is wrong.  You couldn’t possibly be in Hell, not with the heavenly perfection of The Greatest Mustache in the World canceling out any teeny-tiny MORTAL SINS you may have committed with your almost constant vow-breaking; naughty evil thoughts, words, and deeds; and, you know, murdering.

‘cause im thirsty for some degrassi i rewatched season 13 and 14 and guess what my favourite part was?
