SLYTHERIN: “Lord Asriel is just a man, with human power, no more than that. But his ambition is limitless. He dares to do what other men and women don’t even dare to think.” –Philip Pullman (Thorvald: The Subtle Knife)
letters from princess Alice of Battenberg to her son prince Philip
How wonderful everything went off & I was so comforted to see the truly happy expression on your face & to feel your decision was right from every point of view | Alice to Philip, 2 December 1947.
I was so sad to see you all go off […] & I miss my talks with you. I am so grateful that my health permitted me to travel to England & have such a wonderful time with you in consequence | Alice to Philip, 12 August 1962
Dearest Philip, be brave & remember I will never leave you & you will always feel me when you need me most. All my devoted love, your old mama | Alice to Philip, 1 august 1966.

One word. Exams. It was your senior year at college and once you got through these last couple exams you would be free. The thought of not pulling all nighters to study was one that you couldn’t shake as you skimmed the same page of your chemistry book for the third time. You glanced up at the clock. 7 PM. Craning your neck to stretch it, you closed your eyes and took a couple deep breaths. You could afford to take a break? Right?
Greg: Whose idea was it for you three to get drunk and then let D.I. Dimmock dive naked into the river?
Anderson: I didn’t tell him to take off his clothes and jump in the river.
Sally: That’s exactly what you did! You literally said, “Dimmock I dare you to go skinny dipping in the river.”
Dimmock: [Dripping wet, wrapped in a towel] It doesn’t matter, I’m fine now.
Sally: Don’t you understand!! By flinging your naked self into the nearest body of water you’ve compromised the integrity of our entire division, and doomed Scotland Yard’s image until the end of time.

You looked over at the clock, which said 11:50 pm. You decided to get your boyfriend, Anthony, and start heading home. Yes, you knew it was early, but you and Ant had a rehearsal the next morning and some shows after that. No one ever said being in a broadway musical was easy. You finished up your fruit punch and went looking. Renee and Jasmine stopped you and helped find your boyfriend. Renee ended up finding him, and you thanked her before heading to where she had pointed to. You found yourself in the living room where Anthony was talking to Daveed and Oak. “Oh, what’s up, Y/N?” Oak asked, turning all three of the men’s attentions to you. “Well, sorry to interrupt but it’s about time for me and Ant to head home.” You told the trio. Daveed chuckled and waved as Oak nodded. “I’ll be out ina sec, babe, I’m just gonna say bye to everyone.” Anthony told you and you nodded. You made your way back through the crowd, explaining to Lin on how you and Ant were heading out. You laughed as Lin makes a cheesy joke as you began to walk home. You waved to your friend before proceeding on. “What is taking him so long?” You wondered aloud, as your boyfriend was supposed to catch up to you. You pulled out your phone to text him, but suddenly you were lifted off the ground. You heard his laugh and he spun you around before he set you down, putting your head against his chest. Before you could ask him why he was so happy, he whispered, “I just realized I’m in love you, and it feels fantastic.”
