the king's speech play

It’s been 5 years since your mod first met Mr Edwards.

Forgive a lady for reminiscing but OTD, 9th February 2012, on a Thursday afternoon, I saw Charles live for the first time ever, in a production of The King’s Speech at a theatre in Guildford, a town which served as one of his childhood stomping grounds. The play received rave reviews, and made it to the West End not long after its tour around the UK.

so, you like the homo, but...In both ways? Not just girl x girl, but also boy x boy?

While I do prefer them gay gals, I think some gay guys are pretty cute too. Like TakiyaxFafnir… uhm… maybe some other characters that I can’t come up with atm D’: 

I hardly ever draw them because, yknow…  ✨ priorities~ ✨

THE SEVEN KINGDOMS » the kingdom of the stormlands feat. king lear, act III by william shakespeare

The Storm Kings once ruled much of the eastern half of Westeros, several centuries before the War of Conquest, however, their power had dwindled. During the War of Conquest, Orys Baratheon, one of Aegon I Targaryen’s fiercest generals, and rumored to be his bastard brother, slew Argilac the Arrogant, last of the Storm Kings, and married his daughter, Argella.

A Must See Movie

The King’s Speech

and this is my favorite scene haha

Press Play!

I got a request to post The King’s Speech rehearsal footage from early 2012, but seeing as the footage is under a minute long, I made it longer by combining it with the production b-roll footage of the same scene. Even tho it is short, it’s worth a watch just to see Charlie shout at Jonathan Hyde ;)

EDIT: I’ll probably get complaints about putting b-roll before rehearsal, but there’s a reason for that. The b-roll only shows the first half of the scene, while the rehearsal shots shows the other, and I wanted it played out in chronological order.

ー The recent rate of dispatches have been really severe.
Ahh, I'm so tired.
ー I agree, at this point our days without breaks will continue.
ー Hidaka has even fallen sound asleep, after working all night.
ー To think this kind of short breaks are valuable
...ahh, I died!*
ー Don't play such a brutal game during break time.
ー Enomoto, stop drinking tea
And teach me how to clear this level.
ー Hey wait, be quiet!
...There's an announcement for an emergency dispatch.
ー Hey, isn't this...really bad?

In this grave hour, perhaps the most fateful in our history, I send to every household of my peoples, both at home and overseas, this message, spoken with the same depth of feeling for each one of you, as if I were able to cross your threshold and speak to you myself. For the second time in the lives of most of us, we are at war. Over and over again we have tried to find a peaceful way out of the differences between ourselves and those who are now our enemies. But it has been in vain. We have been forced into a conflict, for we are called to meet the challenge of a principle, which, if it were to prevail, would be fatal to any civilized order in the world. Such a principle, stripped of all disguise, is surely the mere primitive doctrine that might is right. For the sake of all that we ourselves hold dear, it is unthinkable that we should refuse to meet the challenge. It is to this high purpose that I now call my people at home, and my peoples across the seas, who will make our cause their own. I ask them to stand calm and firm and united in this time of trial. The task will be hard. There may be dark days ahead, and war can no longer be confined to the battlefield. But we can only do the right as we see the right, and reverently commit our cause to God. If one and all we keep resolutely faithful to it, then, with God’s help, we shall prevail.
