a lot of people assume i’m the type to enjoy revenge. i’m not gonna comment on that, but i will tell you a love a good tale of revenge, such as the count of monte cristo. the short version is—edmond dantes is betrayed by his best friend count fernand mondego, spends some time in a crap prison, makes some friends, finds some treasure and hatches a revenge scheme to end all revenge schemes. aside from sending edmond to prison, fernand also married his fiance mercedes. mercedes loved edmond and married fernand to protect her unborn child and is swept up in a world of money and status. naturally, part of edmond’s quest is to get back at mercedes for her running off with fernand but he eventually realizes he still loves her yada yada yada. it’s quite the confusing little story, but it’s so damn good. readddd itt.

another pevensie post. peter always acted as the voice of reason among the kids and i feel like he was one of those all american types (despite being british). he was wicked smart and eventually was crowned king peter the magnificent. magnificent might be a stretch, but who am i to judge?

presenting the original vampire, count motherfucking dracula. unlike other vampires i might mention, he doesn’t sparkle. he doesn’t hate werewolves, he commands them. he can shape shift into anything and change the weather. he lives with three vampire brides in his castle and wants to take over the world.
don’t mess with count dracula, he’ll bite you. in all seriousness, i’m begging you to read the original by bram stoker…it’s so damn good.

the romantic portrait of the romanov family as do-good monarchs victimized by an irrational people is a little off to say the least. russia suffered a great deal under their watch, compounded by global change and world war i the country turned against their leaders. when it came to tsarina alexandra, they never liked her to begin with. she was more devoted to her personal life than her political duties and when the time came for her to rule in her husband’s absence, the country faltered even more. lets not even mention the whole rasputin thing. long story short, she probably had some nice furs.
