So, first bit, I'm also stealing that WIP meme that everyone seems to be doing...

Jesus Christ, what is this, I don't even... )

On an almost totally unrelated subject, what do you guys want to see from the four weddings in my upcoming A/A/E kink meme fill? I'm thinking the reality ones between the three couples my triad can break off into will be fairly simple, but if anyone has any suggestions on details (like clothes for example, I am not a clothes horse and don't know where to begin looking for that stuff) I am very open to hearing it. I do not want to be guilty of the Did Not Do The Research trope. (And I think I just figured out how to make word links... Wicked.) Beyond that, I've only been to three weddings in my life, and of them I was only really paying attention to one (the first I was too young, the second was outdoors in October and it was bloody cold). Never been the type to daydream about my own, so I haven't thought very much about weddings before.

And for something totally different, be glad your father was not Charles I, Holy Roman Emperor. He was just a little too concerned about his son Philip's sex life - telling him to restrict how often he slept with his wife, for one thing. Granted, Charles' uncle died as a teenager and the records suggest it was overexertion with his new wife that helped do it (and he wasn't the first of his family to have this little issue), but still. Between that and the other Trastamara problem of inbreeding, not to mention the Plantagenets' tendency to kill each other and the Tudors' struggles to have healthy kids boys, it's a wonder these royal families lasted as long as they did! The French look like they did slightly better, but their no female-line inheritance (not even the sons of royal daughters) meant that the line kept moving to different branches of the family. This may have helped.

Pardon the random geekery at the end here.
