For when too much Robespierre Collar Fun Is Never Enough!
Rock Island Argus August 10, 1912

Holy smokes, it’s the neckwear of the moment.  We gotta get on that!
(Interesting that some of them seem to be really emphasizing the frilly jabot over the strong lapels.)

It it wrong of me to think that they’re totally going on about necks (one of the descriptions even says ooooo…can’t wear this one if your neck is too thick!) in a way that seems…odd…when they’re named after Robespierre? Like, we’re being totally unintentionally gallows (or guillotine) humour about this whole thing? “Robespierre Collars: ALL ABOUT THE NECK!” The general shape, though, can be related back to the popular portraits of Robespierre, which is where I’m going with the waistcoat. I’m looking through past auctions to see if I can find a 19th century waistcoat that loosely fits the look.

I maintain that “she’s a hero, you see. she’s not like us” is one of the most telling lines about Giles’ characterization in the entire series. 

#also this is a tiny little thing  #and it holds barely any significence  #but to me it’s huge:  #Giles puts his glasses on just before he suffocates Ben  #He always takes his glasses off for the hard things the disgusting things the bad things  #he always takes his glasses off so he doesn’t have to see or face what is going on around him in full focus  # he can ignore the horribleness of certain things if it’s fuzzy  #but not this one  #not this time  #and I think that says a lot about Giles too (via ladyknightradiant)

#giles does what needs to be done  #he doesn’t want buffy to sacrifice that sort of integrity but he’ll do it because you know he’s probably done it before  #he won’t mind coloring his soul a little darker for the sake of hers or the world’s  #giiiiiiiiiiles D:  (via the-elusive-ollie)

#When this happened I was simultaneously like  #GILES NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  #and also  #wow that is so spot on for his character I can’t even  #And this is where he continually brushes up against Buffy  #She will never condone killing for the greater good  #And Giles admires that  #but also feels that it is foolish  #and that it is his duty to act as this kind of protector for her and for the world#this is where the Watcher comes out in Giles the most I think  #guh (via 0tterp0p)

The backstory: Magic is forbidden. It has been for so long that most people have forgotten a time when magical creatures lived freely and scholars created new spells and potions, reaching for the stars and almost achieving it.

Times changed. It was no one person, no one government that started the movement. But now, in the 21st century, magic is dying .Those that descend from magical creatures and those who have been born with magical leanings are hunted.

The few humans born with magic have learned to hide it, never exploring their birthright. Knowledge of potions, spells, and charms have crumbled. Some tricks have been passed down by word of mouth or in codes long sense deemed unbreakable and unreachable by the modern world.

Non-humans, half humans, creatures of magic survive on the fringes of society, living in fear of discovery. Those that cannot pass for humans buy charms from the criminal underground, using the black market spells to cover green skin, oddly colored eyes, and keep their magic under control.

The black market is a deadly game all are forced to play. The charms are made with the little knowledge still left in the world are far from pure. The ingredients are hard to come by because of the destruction of the environment and the destruction of magical hot spots. Incantations and runes are so few they are used in broad ways and often incorrectly.

But in order to survive charms are needed. No price can be put on a potion that keeps a werewolf from losing consciousness on the full moon. No price can be put on a charm needed for hiding fairy skin or elven eyes. And because there is no price on life, the gangs running the sales of lifesaving magics can ask almost any price and are never held responsible if the magic goes wrong.

And magic will go wrong. Werewolfs will end up with potion that along the line came in contact with a silver knife. Those with more fairy blood than human blood will end up sick for months because of iron in talismans. Nothing is done to help them, no hospital will take in a mermaid or a fire witch. Governments turn a blind eye to the death toll, after all magic is illegal.

Paris as a city plays host to more magic than its citizens would ever dream of. Most parisians never think twice of magic and if they do its because someone mentioned the despicable creatures, the illegal ones in hiding, the ones that hurt. Werewolves, fire witches, and fairies are used in most houses to keep children in at night. They show up on the news every so often, a human death as a result of the magical community. That is all they know.

They do not know about the Underground. In basement of buildings that on the outside look abandoned, in the catacombs, in the dark parts of the city magic is alive. The Underground is the unofficial name and location, from the fairy court in a basement club to the blackmarket in the catacombs, a weak magic is kept burning.

Why does everyone say “house-wife” or “house-husband” when “House-spouse” is not only gender neutral, but also RHYMES?

the prof asks the important questions.

Wait, spouse rhymes with house? I always pronounced it ‘spooze’ in my head /o\ WHY IS YOUR LANGUAGE SO WEIRD, GODDAMMIT!!!

Because English beats up other languages in dark alleys, then rifles through their pockets for loose grammar and spare vocabulary.

Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk. After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl
