# oh god this scene is so spectacular # as soon as she starts speaking cesare walks around to stand at her back # and then when she is spitting rage cesare pulls her to his side # and they are this united front of fury and pain # and it’s so beautiful and awful (eros-turannos)

yes exactly it’s all so physical that it’s hard to describe he just goes over and exudes solidarity he might as well have team lucrezia hanging about his neck i don’t think he even changes expression until he turns back to him and he reaches for her *happy sigh* and rodrigo’s reaction is GLORIOUSLY unprepared

Also, fun fact: being nice to someone you hate does NOT make you two faced

it makes you a mature adult who knows when to pick their battles and when to just let it go and tolerate someone for their shitty personality. 

if you think otherwise grow up

SO MANY PEOPLE TO SHOW THIS TO IT ACTUALLY HURTS ME

one of the biographies I have suggests that the pissy letter Rodrigo wrote about Giulia staying away too long was actually about Adriana, her mother-in-law and his cousin/housekeeper/confidant/trusted supercompetent everything

…I could be into that.

Neat! Reasons why, or just because it’s one of your favorite classes and thus I feel honored to qualify as such in your mind? ;)

Hehe, it is one of my favourite classes, but it’s more that the holy warrior fighting for great justice thing fits how I think of you—at least your fandom persona! Not to the extent of a cleric, not as generic as a warrior :D

Ah, okay! I think (at least in fandom) I do get very vocal and honest about my feelings and what I like and what bothers me. And yes, I don’t wander into discussions but rarely, and I avoid the main tags or commenting on posts of people I don’t mutually follow. So yeah, not a confrontational crusader, but I do try to consistently stick to my guns and a standard of behavior. IDK on ‘great justice’… I’m definitely a lawful neutral/good, as was the consensus from an earlier meme.

And hey, as I do love the Valar, my paladin has their holy patron. ;p

All things considered, the Vanyar fit perfectly :D

tindez said: Martha

My grandmother (well, my stepfather’s mother) is named Marta. People have always called her Martha, from the time she was a small child to the present, even on official paperwork and despite her surname (a very common Spanish one—it’s the name of several towns). I think it started with forced assimilation when she was a little girl—she came from a large family of Mexican immigrants and they were not only forced to learn English but to use English names. Which names she uses and how she feels about “Martha” varies.

I’m very fond of her. She’s a difficult person in a lot of ways and I think I mattered less as a grandchild after her daughter had a son (who looks a lot like my dad <3), but I was also getting older by then, so we’re not terribly close, but I like her more than my natural grandmothers. It’s never been that she doesn’t care, though; she calls me on holidays and remembers my birthday and was immensely gratified when I chose Spanish for my foreign language in college—she has a very strong sense of culture that she passed to my dad, even though he was in and out of foster homes a lot. He picked up the language and family histories and pride in their heritage (on both sides) from her. She taught him to make tortillas the way her mother taught her, and quite a few other things—she made the first chorizo con huevos I ever ate (my favourite dish!). 

Let’s see, what else? She’s a trained nurse practitioner and was the first one to suggest getting me psychological help. She showed me a book she had about STDs when I was quite young as a deterrent against unsafe sex, lol.
