So then in the 70s, I started dating Mary of Modena who was totally gorgeous but an ardent Catholic and William was like, weirdly jealous of her. Like, if I blew off his Protestant advances, he'd be like "Why do you not submit to the true church of Luther?" and I'd be like "Why are you so obsessed with me?" So then, in the 80s, my brother died and made me the heir, I was like "William, you can't come over here because you're not the true heir" I mean, we couldn't have a usurper in England, there was gonna be incense and Catholic emancipation. I mean, right, HE WAS A PROTESTANT USURPER??? So then his country hated my country and started yelling, it was totally stupid. And then he waged a battle of usurpation against me because no one would talk to him, and after he booted me to France, all of his hair was cut off and he was totally weird and now...I guess he's impotent

RATING : SMUT AND LOTS OF IT
WRITER : WE AND MY IDEA

note : luke is the name of your boyfriend not sure why just the name i came up with at the time 

Y/N POV

i was walking home from my job i only work five minutes walk down the road from the flat i share with my boyfriend, luke as i get to our apartment block i see he’s already home as his car a range rover TD6 vogue is in the usual place i don’t have a car i don’t mind walking to town for work and shopping anything else luke does i slowly but surely get to our apartment on the 13th floor and stand just about to unlock the door when i hear the voice of a woman giggling and the voice of luke i slowly open the door and i can definitely hear voices more clearly 

“come on mary” luke says

“i don't know if we should today, y/n could be home soon” the female voice replies 

“oh who cares about her” luke replies i then walk further into our apartment to see our bedroom door is open and lights coming from it i walk to it silently and look through the opening to see some girl i don't know sat on our bed in her underwear and luke sat just beside her the two of them snogging looking like any second about to have sex i can feel the tears welling up in my eyes but i dont want to burst in and make a scene so i just go to the front door again and take his car keys and leave without making at sound i run down all 13 floors to get to the ground floor i then collapse and start crying my eyes out against the wall i don't know what to do i dont even have anywhere to go,

scratch that i do have somewhere to go i then storm out the apartment block and get in his car still crying and start driving  to the only place i know i can go i get my phone and put it on the dashboard and call up my best friend thomas i know he’s back from work at the moment as i was going to see him tomorrow anyway after three rings he answers

“hey love” he says with his always sweet sounding voice

“hey tommy, i have to ask a favour” i reply still crying

“sure what” he asks sound a bit concerned 

“can i come and stay with you tonight something’s happened with me and luke” i say crying my eyes out again 

“course you walking or driving” he asks

“driving i stole his car” i reply 

“quite the criminal aren't you love its fine i'll open on the the garage doors and you can park the car there” he says

“thanks tommy see you in a sec” i say

“see you love” he replies before hanging up i then just keep driving luckily thomas doesnt live that far away from me now i know what you're thinking how the hell do i know him simple really he was my next door neighbor growing up and i've always been friends with him i have even visited him on sets before when i get to his house its huge and he has opened one of the garage doors so i just park the car in the one that's open and get out with in seconds he’s there looking as he often does when i see him not really awake in skinny jeans and a light blue button shirt with sleeves rolled up to his elbows looking if in honest like a teenager but when doesnt he honestly he looks me up and down noticing im crying “what the bloody hell happened” he asks stepping closer to me  looking very worried

i don't reply just burst out crying again he just takes me in his arms and hugs me tightly so im crying on his shoulder he moves his hand up and down my back to calm me down whispering calming sweet things in my ear as well till he pulls away from me as i stop crying and he takes me into the living room a large room with bookcases of games and films everywhere he sits me on the sofa then goes off into the kitchen i just sit trying to hold back my tears till he comes back with a mug of something and puts it on the table in front of me “hot chocolate, the only truly good drink for sadness” he says making me laugh before i drink some noticing its (whatever you fave sort of hot chocolate is)

“seriously” i ask

“yeah, its always here for if this was gonna happen…..on that not what exactly has happened” he asks carefully

“i got home and found luke in the arms of some girl called mary” i say “they were sat on the bed close to snogging each others faces of when i got there and i overheard him say he didn't care if i was gonna be home he was too wrapped up in her arms to care” i say starting to cry again but thomas just hugs me tightly again 

“hey it’s okay, i bet that mary wasn't half as lovely as you” he says

“she looked pretty good from what i saw” i say still crying from what i sore though the door she was beautiful much prettier and thinner than me

“well i bet you're still better than her, and lukes and idiot if he cant see that, he must be blind to want to be fooling around with some other girl when he has you” he says to me 

“awe you always know the right things to say” i reply hugging him even tighter 

“its true thought hes an idiot to think any girl is better then you, i mean if i was your boyfriend i would be begging to get home to be with you i wouldn't even look at another girl if i had you” he says to me pulling away so he says it to my face 

“awe thank you tommy, but no one has me now luke can go fuck himself for all i care, he can go have a threesum with my boss and the queen of england and i still wouldn't care” i say trying to be all brave and stuff even though i know i don't have to be with thomas

“what you gonna do with his car though” thomas asks

“i dont know maybe dump it in a ditch and text him directions to the ditch i left it in” i say drinking some more hot chocolate 

“well if you want i have an idea” he says getting up and taking my hand dragging me back to the garage when we get there he looks around some benches and stuff he has for working on cars and bikes and gives me a huge bit f metal no clue what its for in car terms he then gets something similar “Lets Destroy It” he says

“what” i ask

“lets destroy it wreck it then dump it in a ditch on fire and tell him he wants his car its on fire at where ever we dump it” he says making me laugh 

“are you sure” i ask

“sure just don't hit me in your anger” he says

“i wont” i say fluffing his hair out its normal place something he hates me doing but because he hates it that i do it at any opportunity 

“Y/N” he complains like a child “you're worse then ava for doing that” he says

“i know well ava got it from me” i smirk walking to the side of the car and hitting the mirror right off well that felt good so i continued hitting the car smashing various things and thomas has joined me now both of us destroying his car till these not much on the outside not yet destroyed so i yell stop and sit on the bonnet a bit not completely wrecked and thomas sits beside me “you all don't destroying” he asks

“for a sec” i say a bit tired after destroying his car to this extent “did you mean that” i ask him 

“mean what” he asks

“if you were my boyfriend you wouldn't do anything like that to me” i ask

“i swear by that” he says

“i bet your girlfriend wont be happy with that, then again she doesnt like me very much does she old isabel she don't much like me, thats gonna be another argument i can see when she finds out you have allowed me to stay here and you're helping me wreck my ex’s car” i say

“well i imagine she wouldn't but it doesnt involve isabel she’s my ex now” he answers 

“when did that happen tommy and why wasn’t i informed” i ask 

“happened three weeks back y/n and you went informed simply because you were working when it happened and i didn't want to bother you” he says

“it wouldn't have been a bother tommy, i like to know these things what happened” i ask

“she left me because she doesnt like you” he says quietly 

“what” i ask

“she left me because she doesnt like you” he repeats 

“what the hell thats stupid im your bestfriend what the hell does it matter if she doesnt like me if she loves you” i ask

“loved me past tense y/n if she loved me, she doesnt like the fact i have a friend that i constantly talk to thats a girl she doesnt like she just assumes i would cheat on her at any moment” he says

“awe poor you” i say putting my arm around him “well what do you need girlfriends for tommy we're two of a kind” i say laying back on the bonnet 

“yeah we are just two kids that can't hold down lovers” he laughs laying beside me 

“yeah we are, but if i was your girlfriend i would care who your friends are if there girls, boys, rodents or ghosts there your friends and if they make you happy it would make me happy to make sure you're happy” i say 

“awe thanks love” he says turning to face me i just turn to face him two looking into his deep brown eyes a second but before i've really noticed we were both stareing at each other he leaned forward and kissed me a way i have never been kissed before a little kiss sparking butterflies, fireworks and all manner of lovely things as we moved our mouths in perfect sync with each other a while almost fully making out on the bonnet of my ex boyfriends car till we both pull away “wow” he says

“yeah wow” i reply 

“why the hell did i wait this long to do that” he says

“i dont know why i waited so long either” i reply before we both re connect our lips with much more passion than before till we both pull away again “i just wanted to say” he says

“what” i ask

“this friendship of ours Lets Destroy It” he laughs

“better Lets Destroy It and taint my ex’s car” i giggle 

“you are so a little criminal” he laughs at me 

“and proud of it” i say  as we both get of the bonnet and go into the back seats the second we both sit down we are making out again my arms around his neck his around my waist but slowly moving down to my thighs in response i begin to lay back and he just crawls on top of me fiddling with my skirt before returning to kissing me i quickly move my hands from around his neck to start undoing his shirt he moans into my mouth as i do till i completely take his shirt off of him the second i do he moves away from me and pulls my shirt of tossing it away into the front seats of the car before scanning me over with his eyes but i just pull him back to kissing me he then moves to start kissing my neck and i twist a hand in his hair as he sucks on a sweet spot on my neck and i moan as he does till his hands move to my skirt again and gently pull it off me completely adding it to the pile of our clothes on the front seats before scanning me again and reconnecting our lips and i move my hands down his chest feeling his toned chest the whole way down just pausing at the top of his jeans “what you waiting for love” he asks between kisses 

“nothing” i reply letting my hand undo his jeans and pull them down slightly revealing his boxers before i gently palm him and he moans into my mouth moving his hands to my chest feeling me even though my bra making me moan as well till i let my curious hand slip under the waistband of his boxers taking hold of him in my hand “ah fucking hell” he says in response before undoing my bra and removing it with his teeth making me laugh before he reconnects our lips yet continuing all the way down my chest to the bottom of my stomach just above my knickers  before i grip his hair pulling his lips back to mine and use my other hand to completely remove his trousers and boxers leaving him naked in front of me i can't help but sit there gobsmacked i have never seen him naked before, well i say never once after the last day of school all our friends went skinny dipping in the dark lake and we hwee amongst them but it wasn't for long and dark at the time i wasn't really paying much attention but now i am “what” he asks 

“nothing just wow” i say making him laugh before he slips his hand in my knickers and slips them off throwing them with the rest of my clothes “i could say the same to you” he says making me laugh “now are you sure” he asks me

“fucking positive tommy” i giggle he just nods before kissing me again and slowly but surely pushing into me filling me up completely almost making me scream there and then before he begins thrusting into me with as much force as possible both of us screaming and shouting for a while till i can feel my climax in the pit of my stomach and i know he’s not far off either by the noises he’s making and the fact his thrusts have gotten much slower and sloppier till i climax screaming his name at the top of my voice we are so lucky he doesnt have neighbours with in seconds he comes into me mixing our juices together  and he collapses on top of me “you think we destroyed our friendship now” he asks between his breaths

“yeah thats gone” i laugh

“what about the car” he asks

“one more thing” i say sitting up pushing him off me and moving into the front seat and he sits in the other seat i get my bag from the footwell and get a pack of cigarettes as both me and thomas smoke i take one and bass the pack to him as i get my lighter and light mine and pass him the lighter as he gives me back the pack and we both sit naked and have a smoke making the car smell of both sex and smoke “well that was brilliant in my opinion” he says

“right back at you tommy” i smirk

“so what is this” he asks

“well i don't know, whatever we both want i guess” i reply

“how about boyfriend and girlfriend” he asks

“fine with me” i answer

“how about date for dinner tomorrow night” he asks

“fine with me” i answer

“and how about you pack your stuff at lukes and come here” he asks

“fine with me” i answer leaning over to kiss him again we both then finish our smoke and get dressed again and get out the car “tomorrow we drive it into a ditch and text him where it is and while he’s out we pack your stuff up okay” he says 

“okay” i reply letting him wrap his arm around me and lead me to his room i just sleep in my underwear as i don't have any other option.

when we both get up we dress and take the car out i drive the car even though its destroyed and thomas follows me in his car so we can go to lukes and get my stuff when i find a long deserted road quiet far away and stop the car by the side of the road right next to a ditch i  get out the car and thomas gets out his car and stands with me “i say don't light it on fire actually” he says

“i agree, but can we put it it facing out so the windshield faces the road” i say

“okay” i answers 

“wait” i say just getting an idea and getting back into my ex’s car and sitting on the driver seat thomas then sits on the passenger seat to see what im doing  i get my lipstick out my bag and write on the windshield

 “i know about mary arse hole

 piss of luke 

x y/n” 

“brilliant love” he says beside me “but if i may add something” he asks so i hand him the lipstick and he writes 

“p.s. we did it on the back seat

you cheating lying bastard

x thomas”

making me laugh “brilliant tommy” i say we both then get out the car checking anything we wants out of it and pushing it into the ditch and standing on the road looking at it as he wrapped an arm around me “that is how you get back at your ex” he says we then use my phone to send an exact map reference to luke as to where is car is and a text that says pick me up on it then get back into thomas’s car and drive to my old apartment and wait till we see luke leave out for his car then rush up to the apartment and pack up all my stuff and load it into his car rushing off before luke shows up returning to thomas’s “so lukes gonna let him fuck his little mary, now i've got his y/n” he laughs hugging me

“not his y/n, your y/n now” i giggle 

“yeah” he says

“we really destroy everything don't we” i laugh

Hetalia: Paint It White
  • America: Dudes, this is an emergency! As the paper in front of you with those crazy drawings that are supposedly words says, a majority of humanity has been turned into a noppera ghosty blobs by the freaky beam of light that shoots out of other noppera-bo-ba or baaa I don't really know how to say it. Tony, my righteous alien friend told me they're pictonians from the planet Picto. For reals dudes, Picto's way in like, way far outer space.
  • England: YOUR BRAIN'S IN WAY FAR OUTER SPACE!
  • America: Dude, they're born looking like noppera and they want everybody else looking just like what they're doing, HELLO! Listen up! we can't just let these noppera dudes make earth all freaking boringly white, right? This is wack! We gotta stop these dudes ! Who's with me?... Also, what's a noppera?
  • Japan: Oh yes, I know what they are. It is a Japanese monster without a nose, eyes, or a mouth. It's proper name is nopperabo, okay?
  • England: Wait a tick, are you trying to say this is all your fault Japan?
  • Japan: No! I was simply explaining what noppera means! No more, no less.
  • China: Why do I have to be turned into noppera because of stupid Japan and scary story...
  • Japan: It's not my fault!
  • America: Focus countries ! Japan may have screwed things up, but we still have time to fix it ! Now, your ideas will all suck so listen to me. We'll combine all our military strength! I'll be in command so you can all wear the colors of my flag! All heroes wear red, white, and blue!
  • Italy: I think we should gather under the white flag!

  • England: We also have top-notch productions in the UK!
  • France: Um, time-traveling phone booths can only go so far.
  • England: Shut it, Pépé le Pew, just because you invented movie-making doesn't mean you're any good at it! All your films are good for are putting me to sleep!

  • China: That attitude is why I restrict your films!
  • Japan: Mine are more quietly artistic with cultural story-telling.
  • Italy: My movies are the most fun ones if you want to ask me!

  • China: I'm only allowed to hear my thoughts and those are the ones I like.
  • Germany: Alright then. I'm done here. I don't know why I even thought that we could have a simple discussion. That's not how we work, is it? What a waste. This entire meeting has been pointless. I will do what I have to do and you do what you have to.
  • (Germany leaves the room; soon followed by everyone else)
  • Russia: That's exactly what I was going to say.

  • Canada: I'm still here. And I hate to complain, but no one even bothered to ask my opinion.
  • Kumajiro: Who are you?
  • Canada: I'm Canada.

When you’re feeling down remember that the German translator of “The Twins at St. Clare’s” by Enid Blyton decided to change the setting of the books from England to Germany and gave everybody new names. Patricia and Isabel O’Sullivan became Hanni and Nanni Sullivan (why give them a German last name, coming up with those amazing new names was probably hard enough?) and they also decided to modernise the books. The German books aren’t set in the 1940s, but rather in the 1960s and they actually went to the trouble of turning grammophones into record players, lacrosse into handball, you name it.

This makes me chuckle everytime I think about it, especially because I have no idea why you would do that? Why “translate” a book by changing the setting, the names and actual PARTS OF THE STORY? (They added some chapters to the German editions and whilst there are six books in England, we have like 30 “Hanni & Nanni” books or so.) And my question is: Why!? If anybody could enlighten me, please do, I’ve been wondering about this (and also laughing) for literal years. It also causes so much confusion between English and German Blyton fans, especially since Blyton’s name is ALWAYS on the cover, even on those 20+ books she didn’t actually write. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

As much as I really appreciate the effort you put into your posts breaking down US-centrism, I get the feeling at times you really don't understand how culturally different Americans from different regions can be despite sharing SOME common ties. I relate more to people from the Germanic/Scandinavian Midwest than someone from Spanish-influenced California/Arizona or English-Irish New England. We aren't entirely homogenous & (pt1) -

(Pt2) and there areas among “White” Americans who have been here generations where European ethnicity still matters. Our cultures might have blended to some extent, but differences exist and people might not automatically connect with one another - even if we are “white” under our own definition. There are still people out there who consider that having certain European ancestral ties make you “less white” (like being Latino) even if you “look” 100% & are “culturally assimilated” in the U.S.

Hi, I apologise if I gave that impression. But I don’t think I’ve posited that there aren’t regional cultural differences in the US. I definitely agree with what you say about this- outsiders vaguely familiar with US history will at least have heard about the cultural difference between the Northeast and the Deep South. The US is kind of similar to China in that regard- because it’s so big, there will inevitably be enormous differences in region and therefore diverse regional identities. It is just that in Europe, the idea of ‘white’ is even more fractured by comparison, and the very fact that you guys even see each other as ‘white’ is already kind of a big difference compared to Europe, where ethnicity may often spring to people’s minds first. It’s not just about connecting culturally (there are regional differences between even North and South England etc). 

What I have been saying is mainly that the US race categories tend to function considerably more on colour in comparison to Europe, which has an additional ethnic dimension within ‘whiteness’. This is similar to how I say there is Han Chinese supremacy in China, in as much as there are major cultural differences between the provinces between say, a Han from Guangdong and a Han from Hebei. But they are all classified as ‘Han Chinese’. So, when I say the idea of ‘white’ is homogenous, it is that many Americans are often classified by society via colourist rather than ethnic definitions. This is in comparison to how things like my NHS form asks about ‘ethnicity’ and that for European ethnic groups, the options are things like ‘English / Irish / Scottish / Welsh’ and ‘other European: please specify’. Not just ‘white’, compared to the US census. Racism here is very much on ethnic lines too, because some of these may originate in ancient faultlines that long predate whiteness. Like between the English and the Irish, for instance, where there was an armed conflict right up to the 21st century. There is racism against non-white people here, definitely- but it has not resulted in the kind of confrontation like the Troubles, which underscores how old European fault lines continue to play a big role.

The Budget for 2015 in the UK has been released, the first one by an all Conservative government in 19 years, and honestly, it’s left me giving University a second thought. Here’s why.

  • Tuition fees could be set to rise. George Osborne wants to give universities that show good quality the ability to increase their tuition fees above the £9,000 mark there already is from 2017/18
  • There’s also going to be a five year freeze on the level in which students have to start paying back student loans which is currently at £21,000 a year. Under the Lid Dem/Conservative government we had from 2010 to this year, this figure was increasing in line with the rate of inflation. Therefore with this freeze, we’ll have to pay back loans sooner.
  • To top that, maintenance grants are being scrapped completely. Usually students who’s families had a low income could receive up to £3,000 from the government to help cover maintenance costs while studying. These are indifferent from loans as they don’t have to be paid back. But now they are being scrapped and turned into loans, putting students into even MORE debt. 
  • Not totally university related, but the UK is rejoicing about this increasing in the living wage which should go up to £9 an hour but 2020. THIS DOES NOT APPLY FOR ANYONE UNDER 25. We’ll all still be with the usual £6.50 an hour, or less, depending on how old you are. — Which teamed with the lack of maintenance grants means students could find it hard to keep up with things such as rent, and other amenities while studying.

This is kind of shitty for me, because I’ve planned my whole educational path with the aim of going to university. I’d been looking into it, and with the help of maintenance grants I COULD afford it. But now with that being scrapped… I’m not too sure I can. £3,000 a year may not seem much when you see the debt you’ll still be lumbered with, but it does help a bit. It’s made me have to look into Universities closer to home, or near someone I know who could put me up, as that may be the only realistic option now, and limits my options greatly.

  • Another thing they’ve also done; cutting housing benefit for 18-21 year olds. The Indepdenent have said it’s part of their “earn or learn” obligation. So basically, especially in somewhere where I live where the rent is freaking sky high for shit as fuck conditions, really (in my neighbours house everything is breaking), young people probably won’t even be able to afford to rent their own house. How are we supposed to earn when you’re not raising our wages like you are for everyone else?

Political rant over.

(I don't have any pictures because my girlfriend lives in England and me in America but heres the story) My girlfriend and I met online 5 years ago, when I was 13 and she was 16. It only took a few months to fall in love and we got together when I was fourteen. My parents found out and did everything they could to separate us. Since then we've done everything we can to still talk (Skype/FB mostly) and we're even more in love, if possible. trying to save up to meet in person. I adore that girl :)

Hiya, okay I think I've started liking someone but I doubt he likes me back and even if he did my family think it would be wrong because of the age difference (I'm 15 and he is 18) and also because he lives in Ireland and I live in England. All my friends say that it is obvious that we like each other but I don't see that. What should I do?

sounds like some puppy love! just have fun talking to him while he’s still in your life
