history meme(french edition) → free choice: relationships (1/?) Marguerite de Valois and Henri IV’s children.
“When Marie de Medici, second wife of Henri IV, was crowned queen of France, Marguerite, his former first wife, garbed in crown and royal mantle, followed behind. This is in fact quite a good metaphore to resume their family life. Marguerite acted as a kind of honorary aunt to her former husband’s children; she was godmother to his son Gaston, and the Dauphin, later Louis XIII, tenderly called her “mama”. After her death in 1615, the young King confessed that ‘he misses her dearly’. ” – A. Lloyd Moote, Louis XIII, the Just.

What I want to do: tell people I’m asexual so it’s out of the way and they can stop assuming I’m allosexual
What I don’t want to do: give a 5 minute explanation of what asexuality is followed by a 10 minute debate on whether or not it’s actually a real thing followed by yet another another 10 minutes of uncomfortable questions as they continue to try and disprove my sexuality to me
Okay, but imagine like, Miranda isn’t dead, she was like maybe shot in the shoulder instead, and she stands (sits) next to Flint, ready for trial in Charlestown.
Then Vane walks in (like he owns the place) and delivers Abigail’s diary to the jury.
That one member of the jury in charge of reading selected passages reads a little too far, and now everyone knows that fearsome pirate captain Charles Vane once brought her a tea cup so she could drink water (because isn’t it what you English people do??) and also that Manderly guy has very nice arms, but it sincerely doesn’t hold a candle to Miranda’s cleavage.
Miranda has to bite her cheek to stop laughing at Lord Ashe’s face.
Charles had had enough of people knowing he brings tea cups to teenage girls so he decides to burn Charlestown down. No one should be left to remember that.
Abigail has heard they were reading her diary in court so she sneaked out. She has never blushed so hard in her entire life. When the fight starts, she begs Flint to take her with him because now she has like zero hope of living that one down. She doesn’t like the idea of people dying, but she’s glad no one will be left to remember.
Except Miranda. She remembers.
Miranda brings Abigail home in Nassau and they start a school to teach children how to read and write. Abigail invents naptime stories for them. When the resistance for Nassau starts, they still let Billy and the resistant in their house, but they’re too afraid of Miranda to break any tea cup, or look at Abigail for too long.
Abigail teaches old grumpy rough and dirty pirates twice her age how to read and write with a very gentle voice. Miranda gives the more passionate speeches and the philosophical discussions about why resistance is necessary.
Charles hides in the house because everyone thinks he’s dead. He learns to play the harpsichord.
As you can see, these books have Rick’s stamp of approval and they are definitely worth checking out! They are full of ghosts and also wonderful children running around with swords and I just really hope they don’t hurt themselves because I will protect them to the end of the world
There is also a sassy talking skull that lives in a jar. He’s pretty cool too.
“Paramore are such a great live band, and cool people too. It’s cool to now watch them and be like ’those are our friends up there!’ And they’re just great performers and entertainers and musicians.” - Josh Dun
