anonymous asked:

good evening! i love your blog and just wanted to stop by and ask if you have any blog recommendations?

Hi! Thank you 💕 I have so many favourites, you should really just check out those who I reblog from frequently, but my very favourites are: 

@autumnmoons, @heather-dove, @unknown–martyrs, @lucasta, @ophiolatreia@huhne, @milkeyedmenders@dianics, @lesgardenias, @hannahjb, @milkteeth18, @mushroompicking, @eveninglesbian@rosynectar, @clockworkreverie and @tree-stump-palace… I’m definitely forgetting some but that’s probably enough now anyway xx

The groundbreaking Minnesota-born actress Hilda Simms (1918-1994) in a scene with Van Heflin from the 1954 film, “The Black Widow.” Ms. Simms was best known for her starring role in the first all-black, American Negro Theater production of “Anna Lucasta” on Broadway in 1944. Despite the tremendous momentum provided by the publicity behind the show, she only made two films (“The Joe Louis Story” in 1953 and this film) and just two more appearances on Broadway (including Langston Hughes’s “Tambourines to Glory” in 1963). Ms. Simms is in the “Sepia Dreamgirls, Pin-ups, & Hollywood Starlets” chapter of my book, Vintage Black Glamour, available at vbgbook.com and Amazon.

“Hm. The one lovely thing about this whole ‘illusion’ business is I can, quite frankly, look like whatever I so choose. And if I so choose to go incognito…”

Because a group chat spawned this madness, Ardyn is completely not above going incognito as a woman if he feels like it, because it’s fun, convenient, and he’s a troll. He goes by Lucasta Accipite while masquerading as a lady, and honestly I’m totally keeping this headcanon because it’s fun and I’m an absolute sucker for trickster shapeshifters :|

His FC as ‘Lucasta’ is Bridget Regan, btw.

Nightmares || Multi

Lucasta ran for her life as the vision took her and Rowan? What was he doing here? Oh yes he was a priest like she was a Priestess. “ROWAN get out of here!” She called to him.

Rowan hurried to her not blind in this vision. “No. We are seeing it Mother the final battle. This battle we have here we have more people with us than we did before.” He cupped a hand on his Mother’s shoulder. “Jones is making his move.”

She nodded as vampires and Jones’ men surrounded them. “We are alone Rowan.”

He took her hand. “No we aren’t.” He smiled. “We have back up.” He suddenly twisted in his face as pain filled his body as several blades pierced him. 

Jones grinned as he knocked her lifeless son away, “I’m coming little Priestess!”

Lucasta screamed in her sleep unable to leave as the vision took hold, her eyes rolled back as the vision happened.

Jas entered the room grabbing Lu and pulling her close. “Shhh, Lu, shh,” He kissed her forehead breaking the vision from her mind.

She awoke and for once was grateful for his presence. He was here! He was here! 

Jas had ran past AJ on his way to Lu’s room hearing her screams which the Monks did nothing to comfort her the Nuns neither. 

To Lucasta, Going to the Wars

by Richard Lovelace

Tell me not, sweet, I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind,
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
The first foe in the field;
And with a stronger faith embrace
A sword, a horse, a shield.

Yet this inconstancy is such
As you too shall adore;
I could not love thee, dear, so much,
Loved I not honour more.

To Lucasta,

On Going to the Wars:

Tell me not, Sweet, I am unkind
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind,
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
The first foe in the field;
And with a stronger faith embrace
A sword, a horse, a shield.

Yet this inconstancy is such
As you too shall adore;
I could not love thee, Dear, so much,
Loved I not Honor more.

—  Richard Lovelace
To Lucasta, Going To The Wars

“Tell me not, Sweet, I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
The first foe in the field;
And with a stronger faith embrace
A sword, a horse, a shield.

Yet this inconstancy is such
As thou too shalt adore;
I could not love thee, Dear, so much,
Loved I not Honour more.”

- Richard Lovelace (1649)

Checked into the Honeymoon Suite || Jas and Lucasta

Jas woke up, untangling himself from her and quickly running to the mansion and grabbing the bags they had already packed. He put them in the carriage, telling them to meet him and his wife at the docks in an hour. He ran back, getting into the kitchen and cooking her eggs, toast, potatoes and bacon. He got a grapefruit, cut it in half. Then he made her tea and brought it back to the room. “Wake up.” He nudged her gently. 

Train Robbery || Lucasta, Hook, Azalea

Lucasta had left Boston several days ago and was well on her way to the quaint town of Knowhere. At least so she thought clasped in her hand was her Brother’s letter and in the other was a fan. It was hot after all and she wondered why people were getting nervous. “What is it?” She asked her accent a dead give away of how foreign she was to these parts. 

“A train Robbery Miss.” She peeked out of her windows and gasped. “Oh this must be someone hired by my brother just to give me a scare.” Surely no one would attack the sister of the Sheriff of a town like Knowhere. Or a train full of innocent people. After all that was just stories made up about the West to make it seem more wild. She got dressed in her best after all she was soon to see her Brother right?“

discussions (Jack,Ponyo,Lucasta)

Ponyo walked with Jack back onto the ship and to where they had been directed to Lucasta’s cabin. Ponyo had been anxious to speak with the woman and now was relieved to finally have the chance.
Ponyo knocked on the door and rocked back on her heels while she waited for an answer, squeezing Jack’s hand tightly in her nervousness

Playdate || Artemis & Atlas

Artemis was ushered into the room by Lucasta. The door closed behind her, “Atlas!” She ran to him and hugged him in a friendly greeting then remembering her station she stepped back and bowed. “How’s The Hobbit?”

Take a Bite || Jas & Lu

Jas excitedly ran through the house. He could smell her already and there was never a sweeter smelling blood to him. He exited the house, spotting her a little way up the road. “Lady Lucasta!” He called to her, striding over to her. “Hello.” He turned on the charm, bowing slightly and holding out his hand for hers.
