hey dragon. you’re not supposed to be here.Conception of Alexander the Great, Les faize d’Alexandre (translation of Historiae Alexandri Magni of Quintus Curtius Rufus), Bruges ca. 1468-1475.
British Library, Burney 169, fol. 14r

Although Alexander the Great was a real historical person, he liked to go around claiming that he was the son of the god Zeus. A myth therefore sprung up that Zeus turned himself into a dragon or snake and seduced Alexander’s mother, Olympias, while her husband Philip of Macedonia was out. This picture depicts that awkward moment when Philip came home unexpectedly and caught them at it. Although the same tale has also been depicted in more NSFW pieces of art, I love this one for its an unexpectedly sit-com approach. You just know the dragon’s about to claim that there’s a PERFECTLY innocent explanation for all this…

got my 30 day weigh-in a bit lateish, but the okay news is i’m up 3 pounds (i…. always think i’m 128, always, that’s what i always say, but i was 122 when i started and 123 now, so it’s the ballpark but every single time i step on a scale i’m all “huh.”) and i’m down from 18% body fat to 14.5%!! 
also, i am told to keep my ass up a lot less, because now i just do it naturally, and it’s a little disappointing, sob

erik having a dowry and all the regency tropes yeeeesss

yesss but you don’t understand i have marathoned soooooo much of that amazing hbo john adams miniseries that all i want is basically revolutionary era charles fighting to make a peaceful mutant colony with the quiet late-night advice of his brilliant not-strictly-good-wedding-material omega but LARGELY it’s just the trash about him knocking up Erik and maybe like 2% about the first mutant congress talking disparagingly about Charles & his omega like “oh i hear your omega defended your farm admirably—imagine if that power was inherited by an alpha” and someone else being all “well he looks enough the part, haha” etc, and Charles just quietly seethes. also: lots of long missives when they are separated, siiiighhhhhhhhhhhhh

I would read all 100% of that :D :D :D

aaaahhhh i wish! but this weekend is 1000000% remix, and august’s schedule will suck for writing… when truly all i want is to write about Charlotte, the pretty “proper English girl” type who makes loads of money for the brothel when those cattle barons and city slicker types come through town (EVERY WESTERN TROPE GDI) while secretly tricking a bit extra out of them with her telepathy, and Erika, who’s hardened and really would be better suited to riding horses and not men, who thinks nothing of making extra money being what Charlotte calls “remarkably ill-used,” and there’s just probably a lot of tending to Erika’s wounds and Erika fussing like “I can damn well stitch up my own fool self and you’d do best to worry after you.” siiiiiigghhh possibly there’s a threesome with the handsome vaquero who fancies Erika (and is nice to her so Charlotte much approves) when he gets drunk* in the bath and passes out and Erika finds out Armando’s a mutant, too, Charlotte get in here! and possibly i have thought about this ALL DAY 

downboy replied to your post “I’m so pissed”

i need ittttttttt omg <3

don’t we all need WHAT IS BASICALLY me writing a trashy exploitive story after watching a LOT of historical drama about Erik having a dowry AND EVERYTHING and possibly loads of babies, also knotting???? siggghhh i just want historical knotting forever 

*i realize canonically armando can’t get drunk just roll with it this is silly enough

I’m so pissed

At my own brain I slept 2 hrs today and I’m exhausted because my mind took me on one of those endless brainfic rollercoasters you know the kind. But instead of like writing my remix it was 50% a genderswap western au where they’re both ladies of ill repute what save up a ton of money and shoot their way out/run off together and 50% a sprawling trashy omega verse harlequin romance complete with dubious tropes like “terrified virgin” and “almost die during childbirth” and a lot of other stuff I’d feel bad about normally but is 100% ok when it’s happening to michael fassbender somehow like don’t judge me judge my brain ok

AU where Charles and Erik are shitty youtube vloggers. It’s an epic love story (sort of).
