“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”
—Enid Bagnold

From Washington and His Aides-De-Camp by Emily Stone Whiteley (via cool-cool-considerate-men)

(via publius-esquire)

An adventurer, born out of wedlock, Hamilton suffered from a complex utterly unknown to his young companions, to Laurens, the son of a wealthy planter, or to Meade or Harrison or Tilghman, with their comfortable social standing. His small stature, too, was a tender subject with Hamilton, and his erect bearing had a touch of defiance in it. Colonel Harrison hit it off when he called him ‘the Little Lion.’ He was proud and, underneath the affected hardness, was a very sensitive young gentleman.

furbyboom:

imagesometimes i like to just throw on my furby suit and go for a walk around town. i enjoy seeing the looks on the childrens faces when, for a moment, they believe there might be a real furby across the street. once they have spotted me maybe i’ll do a funny dance for them, or something. they take out their iphone, probably to call their friends and say “bro, look at this furby! this is crazy!”. pretty soon the police show up for some reason. then i

Upper Left: Declan - {Scotland}
Upper Right: Emrys - {Wales}

Lower Left: Ruairi - {Ireland}
Lower Right: Arthur - {England}

Kel: “Declan is the oldest and first in line for the throne. Their father has spent the most time grooming his eldest to be the perfect successor and master of economics, military affairs, trade, domestic rule, and foreign diplomacy. He lives up to the image of being the model heir and is all around well liked, but when he and Ruairi go unsupervised for too long…well, pubs, women, and rather death-defying escapes from angry kitchen staff happen. Above all, Declan takes his role as a brother seriously and tries his best to balance his father’s expectations with looking out for them.”

Pie: “Emrys is the second oldest (though only third tallest) and many of you who read Kel’s NYH fics will recognize his design and close connection to Arthur. Emrys is incredibly laid back and, though brilliant in many ways, doesn’t apply himself all that seriously to being the ideal son his father wishes him to be. He, like Arthur, isn’t seen to be a very fit heir and largely ignored by the king — but Emyrs rather likes it that way, as it allows him to get the most out of life and spend more time away from palace eyes. Emrys is very well liked by the people of Wayrest and the palace staff; he also proves to be Arthur’s best friend growing up and ultimate savior (as Emrys was the one who smuggled Arthur out of High Rock to Skyrim, where he could escape assassination). Of the brothers, Emrys is the peace keeper and ultimate confidant. When any of them are in trouble, Emrys’s compassionate nature and wisdom is highly sought after.”

Kel: “Next is Ruairi, the third oldest and most brazen of the four. Ruairi has a sharp tongue, hot temper, and the brawn to back it all up. He idolizes Declan and is more than a little jealous of the attention he gets from their father, but no matter what he is forever a willing and dependable wingman. He’s not as diplomatically savvy as his brothers or as favored by those at court or around the city, but even Declan cannot match his prowess as a warrior. He is a constant brotherly tormenter of his siblings, especially Arthur, who he sees as too anti-social and stuck up. However, there is nothing he wouldn’t do to protect his kin, and is the first to put himself between aggressors and his brothers.”

Pie: “Lastly, there’s Arthur, the youngest and smallest brother. Growing up, Arthur spent much of his time reading books, studying languages, history, alchemy, and above all — magic. Arthur knew he had a gift from  young age and while his brothers were focusing on physical exercise, Arthur was focusing on his mind and cultivating the spark inside him. He was teased constantly for his small size and preference for spending time in gardens rather than be with people. When he wasn’t with mentors or by himself, Arthur kept close company with his brother Emrys and their mother — who all the boys loved and respected very much. As it is not revealed to the boys until their mother’s death that Arthur is only maternally related, none of them had ever before questioned Arthur as family. Even afterwards, when the enraged king branded his wife an adulterous whore and Arthur illegitimate, his brothers defended him and spirited Arthur from High Rock to Skyrim…where at least he would have a chance.”

Kel: “All three brothers were severely punished for their role in Arthur’s escape and every last vestige of Arthur and their mother was stripped from the palace and records. The siblings’ opinion of their father turned incredibly bitter and Declan’s new goal became striving to be a better king than his old man ever was, and Ruairi is in full support of him. Emrys, for having been the most outspoken against what happened and  the personal escort of Arthur to Skyrim (beyond his father’s reach), was banished from Wayrest and removed from his place as second heir. Emrys never once regretted his actions and happily took to exile, living under a new identity elsewhere in High Rock.

:’) As Pie and I are both very fond of the brothers, we hope to bring you more of their stories later on~”
