REBLOG/LIKE if you still love Tiberias Calore VII despite every single flaw he has and every single mistake he’s done and if you’re still hoping for a Marecal ending.
Tbh, Cal might have made a very stupid decision, but what about all the good things he’s done? Like giving a silver coin worth a whole crown to a stranger thief when he could have had her head for robbing him. Or for protecting the same thief in the Bowl of Bones when he could have just saved himself.
Hey guys!! I was thinking about maybe trying doing some commissions, but first I wanted to get a feel for how many people, if any would be interested. I would do anything from sketches to watercolor to comics, in any fandom I’m familiar with or even things non fandom related, depending.
Just like or reblog if you would be interested or think your followers would. Also check out my art tag for more! Thanks ❤️❤️❤️
Literally just all the sexual things Alexander Hamilton sent to John Laurens
“I love you.”
This one is pretty self explanatory. Men were much more intimate back in the 1700′s, forming bonds that seem very ~gay~ in today’s light. Homosexuality wasn’t a very understood thing back then because rigid moral codes and censured education prevented people from learning more about sexuality.
But Alexander Hamilton knew.
He grew up on an island where ‘Sodomites’ (gay people) were dumped and allowed to mingle with the island population. Alex knew that there was a certain zone of interactions between men that went from being merely friendly to sexual. He clearly steps into the bounds of sexual while fully realizing it.
“In drawing my picture, you will no doubt be civil to your friend; mind you do justice to the length of my nose and don’t forget, that I [- - - - - -].”
Ahhhhhhhhh my son Alex, could you be more explicit? Alex here is obviously referring to his something else (you know) with the knowledge that John Lauren’s knows the size. This sentence right here is basically just one long ;).
“Your friend” seems to be written teasingly, as if they both know how far from friends they are.
And we can only guess how dirty Alex got in those last six CUT OUT words.
“Dear Boy” [sent by John Laurens]
John laurens calls his wife his ‘dear girl’, and here he calls Alex his ‘dear boy’. Moreover, Laurens did not call any other man he ever wrote to as his ‘dear boy’. Laurens seems to see Alex as on the same level, if not higher, than his own wife.
“Did I mean to show my wit? If I did, I am sure I have missed my aim. Did I only intend to [frisk]? In this I have succeeded, but I have done more. I have gratified my feelings, by lengthening out the only kind of intercourse now in my power with my friend.”
This phrase right here I unfortunately do not see a lot when people talk about Alex and John’s letters. This, to me, is one of the most explicit. “Wit” also mean one’s you know what (here I give a nod to the Ravenclaw moto), so Hamilton’s saying he was pretty much just messing around with John the last letter he sent. This is the only sort of “intercourse” he is able to have with John, as they are both so far apart. He is incapable of ‘sexual’ intercourse because of their distance, so he feels he must, in the 18th century way, sext.
“I would invite you after the fall to Albany to be witness to the final consummation.”
As you might have already guessed, Alex is inviting John to a threesome on his wedding night. The idea that Alex feels so at ease inviting John to a threesome with his wife suggests they have already had something going for a long time now.
“But like a jealous lover, when I thought you slighted my caresses, my affection was alarmed and my vanity piqued. I had almost resolved to lavish no more of them upon you and to reject you as an inconstant and an ungrateful –”
Here Alex compares himself to John’s lover, and a jealous one at that. John seems to be shying away from Alex’s bawdiness, as if realizing how strange their relationships is in retrospect. Alex is scrambling to hang on to him, even though he knows well what are and what happens to Sodomites. He would do anything for John while knowing the consequences. And John is too afraid to join him.
And who the hell knows what the last word was.
“And believe me, I am lover in earnest,”
*cough cough* looks like John knows exactly what happens when Alex’s feeling frisky.
“She [Eliza] loves you a l'americaine not a la francoise.”
The French were renowned for their relaxed stance on extramarital love affairs, while Americans were more Puritan-minding and thought love affairs only should happen in church-sanctioned marriages. Thus Eliza has an a l’americaine love of John Laurens, rather than an a la francoise.
“You will be pleased to recollect in your negotiations that I have no invincible antipathy to the maidenly beauties & that I am willing to take the trouble of them upon myself.”
*cough* this sentence is a bit confusing, and could be taken a few ways. What I infer from this is that Alexander Hamilton is willing, and John knows this, to assume an air of femininity because he finds no fault with it. It was commonly noted by people who wrote of Hamilton that he was very feminine in comparison with other men of his day. Alex’s femininity seems to please John, the topic even having been discussed between the two in ‘negotiations’.
“Yrs for ever”
Ok, this one isn’t sexual, but I had to add it because it is so heartbreaking. This was Alex’s last farewell note to John. That is, if he even received it. He died shortly after Alex sent the letter; whether he read the farewell or not is all lost to history. Alex loved John so much, despite the fact that both already had a wife. He would have always loved him, even if they had grown apart…
Hello, @garr9988 . You may or may not remember, but I was the
first person to respond to your reblog of that Bering & Wells post, in
which you called out @ellabellbee . In the Ask I sent to you, I said the
following: “Hey man, just FYI, you don’t need to ‘explain’ things to
anybody in the B&W fandom, and particularly not to @ellabellbee. We’ve been
here a lot longer than you and know what went down just a tiny bit better. For
To which you responded publicly, saying that I sounded
condescending but that I probably hadn’t meant to. (For the record: meant to,
but only a little.) You also said that you “felt the need to correct people”
when they held “incorrect beliefs” about things. I didn’t much like your
response, I’ll admit, but okay. I said what I said, you said what you said, and you made those words public.
I bring this up only because you deleted my Ask and your
answer: you erased me, and my voice, from the situation. And I don’t often express anger publicly, but erasure is one of the things I REALLY DON’T LIKE.
You say you’re a feminist, and you support that by citing the dictionary definition of feminism. I really, genuinely hope you won’t find
it condescending if I point out that dictionary definitions tend not to cover
lived experience in its fullness. I’m a feminist too. My lived experience of
that—as a gay white woman, one who has spent most of her
working life in fields dominated by men—probably gives me a different perspective than
yours gives you. Anyway, my lived
definition includes the importance of not erasing women’s voices. Maybe take that into consideration the
next time you decide, first, to insert your voice into a conversation that is mostly
(but of course not completely) among and about women, and second, to mostly disregard, and then delete,
what was intended as a friendly warning from a woman who is fully informed about said conversation.
