♞ FALLEN KNIGHTS — A mix for knights eager to avenge their name and family, but whose pride cause them to fall and die on the battleground. Songs for wounded warriors and dying knights, for tearful heroes who see the light as their story ends in the middle of the war.

“So palpable is London’s presence in these comedies that the city can be thought of as Middleton’s Marlovian protagonist”
— Michael Taylor, introduction to the OUP edition of A Mad World, My Masters and Other Plays by Thomas Middleton
love a good bit of 'London as literary character'
especially when linked to greediness and the overreaches figure
a whole type of comedy that feeds off London
early modern shit

alichay replied to your post:alichay replied to your post:What tags should I…
just because you’re used to reading that stuff doesn’t mean I want you to have to scroll past it! I can start tagging nsfw text posts that way too if you’d like?
if you tagged stuff with something like ‘nsfw text’ then it’d be caught by my blacklist, or if you’d prefer to use another tag, let me know and I’ll add it on - I have the option so that I can see which thing is being blacklisted as I scroll, and the tags on the post, so I can work out if it’s something I don’t actually want to miss, usually

Modern Domestic AU where Hal and Poins are shopping for a vacuum cleaner. Hal refuses to get anything except a ‘Henry’. Poins refuses to get a ‘Henry’. The shopkeeper is confused as to why they have been arguing over this for three hours standing in the middle of the shop.

Percy Shelley (1792-1822), English poet. Shelley was an important poet of the romantic period, penning such well known works as “Ozymandias”, “Queen Mab”, and Zastrozzi”. He attended Oxford, but reportedly spent all his time reading and went to only one lecture; he was eventually expelled because of his penchant for provocative pamphlets. Not only was he married to the author of Frankenstein, but the attractive Sir Percy was bros with both Keats and Byron, a friendship that presumably involved them writing odes to each others’ sexy hair. Shelley died in 1822 when his boat, named after one Byron’s poems, sank.
ahaha the sexy hair bit

alichay replied to your post:What tags should I use for stuff with sex scenes in it so you can block it?
I tag everything with boobs etc nsfw but am aware I occasionally go off into tagrambles on innocent posts, would you like me to start tagging them for you too?
Tagrambles are fine, I’m mostly fine with written stuff (that isn’t, like, smut fic) because I have spent a long time reading books with sex scenes. It’s more just films/pictures etc I’d prefer to avoid!

just because i don’t follow u back doesn’t mean i think u have a shitty blog. you might just have posts/fandoms/stuff i don’t really want on my dash. and hey, that’s fine. it’s YOUR tumblr you’re here for you and that’s goodgreatawesome

often it's just 'cause I don't follow too many people
so if you post a lot of similar stuff to other people I follow I'm less likely to follow you
it's just 'cause I'm quite obsessive about knowing what's going on on my dash
and don't have the time to do that constantly
