I have been having Jimmy Kent feels for the past two and a half hours

And I don’t understand what’s happening to me??

There are a lot bad feelings happening

About Jimmy

But not like directed at Jimmy

For Jimmy

I feel like writing angst fic about him, I don’t really want Thommy to go canon

Tonight has been a fucking emotional rollercoaster

Plot twist: It’s not Jimmy leaving the Abbey that upsets Thomas, it’s Sybbie. She just called Robert “Donk” one too many times and got marching orders (Thomas gave her silver to pawn to make her way in the world, that’s how he’s embroiled).

I shouldn’t read spoilers at 3AM, I’m like in a weird cognitively dissonant frenzy

THOMAS WHAT ARE YOU DOING

JIMMY - 

WELL THAT’S NOT HOW I MEANT IT BUT MAYBE

JIMMY I REALLY HOPE YOU DIDN’T ASK THOMAS TO WAIT IN THE CORRIDOR DURING YOUR BOOTY CALL WHEN YOU APPARENTLY KNOW HE LOVES YOU

THOMAS I’M SORRY YOUR ONLY FRIEND IS LEAVING BECAUSE OF THE PUSSY

WHAT IS YOUR PLAN

DOYOU  KIDNAP SYBBIE ONLY TO HOLD HER RANSOM FOR JIMMY’S RETURN (KIDNAPPING INVOLVES TEA AND BISCUITS AND STUFF, HE’S NOT AMONSTER)

DO YOU SET A DIFFERENT FIRE SO YOU CAN RESCUE EDITH AGAIN

OR DO YOU JUST KEEP JIMMY TRUSSED IN YOUR ARMOIRE POSSIBLY AGAINST HIS WISHES

THOMASSSSS

Summary:

It had, in time, become something as akin to ownership as desire - she thought of Jimmy as undoubtedly her lover, undoubtedly her boy, but he became too undoubtedly her creation of her own design. That Jocastan pride flared once more in her when she watched him bend to her whims but come off of his own accord, to exist for the both of them so entirely.

flippyspoon:

To me there are at least three different things to discuss when talking about any piece of media: what happened and how well was it done, what would I rather have seen happen, and the social aspects. And they have nothing to do with each other in my book.

I do agree, I just hate the fact of this particular storyline enough that it’s like a little glint of sun blinding me to objectivity. I mean - I’m still going to watch and would accept being pleasantly surprised. Just…man, it’d be one hell of a surprise.

"I long more than I can say to love a woman completely & absolutely & to have that love returned. The world would say that a physical relationship between two of the same sex is an unspeakable crime. But after a few weeks consideration I have come to the conclusion that this relationship can never be as degrading as the normal sex relationship can be & usually is. I know it is a big thing to say that the normal sex relationship of men & women is more degrading than the other, but it will be true wherever & so long as women are in economic slavery to men & I think you will agree."

— Francis Wilder, in a 1915 letter to Edward Carpenter, published in Signs 1977 with an introduction by Ruth F. Claus. (via signsjournal)

"Anyone who realises what Love is, the dedication of the heart, so profound, so absorbing, so mysterious, so imperative, and always just in the noblest natures so strong, cannot fail to see how difficult, how tragic even, must often be the fate of those whose deepest feelings are destined from the earliest days to be a riddle and a stumbling-block, unexplained to themselves, passed over in silence by others."

— Edward Carpenter, The Intermediate Sex: A Study of Some Transitional Types of Men and Women (via traceyhamilton)

eeyorotics asked:

Well, I was pretty damn close. I've been thinking about Carpenter and Merrill a lot lately too, for obvious reasons. It's not as thought they're obscure figures, if you're looking for late 19th/ early 20th C homosexual apologists. But that's the catch, I guess. You have to be looking.

It’s far harder to make grand posts about historical accuracy if you actually have to, like, research first.
