    i can't believe i've caved to the guilty pleasure of reader-insert fic at the tender age of 31. maybe because i'm older, cringe is dead, and i'm tired of pretending that i don't spend a good chunk of my time daydreaming about being on a date with my fave because reality is exhausting i need to think about something other than the grueling oppression of capitalism. chance meeting with tom hiddleston at a nameless london bar? i'd give anything to be in a nameless london bar getting flirted with by tom hiddleston rather than trying to figure out how the hell i'm gonna make rent and buy groceries this month.

    he just bought me a beer and asked me to dance listen i'll call you back

    #my mom read bodice rippers back in the 80s with fabio on the cover we've been doing this for ages. #tom hiddleston do not interact unless you're buying me a beer. i don't even like beer. #this is NOT a meltdown i'm actually having quite a good day despite the constant feeling of looming exhaustion. #tmi maybe idk

    Historical Romance Review: The Frost and the Flame by Drusilla Campbell

    The Frost and the Flame, Drusilla Campbell, Pocket Books, 1980, Harry Bennett cover Art Spoiler Alert ⚠ 4 1/2 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rating: 3.5 out of 5. Drusilla Campbell’s The Frost and the Flame is one of those naughty bodice rippers where the heroine is separated for a long period of time from her true love, the dull, twatwaffle of a hero, and instead spends more time sexing it up with the lusty,…

    im posting this low quality photo of my tv screen on here for two reasons

    #when bodice rippers mention heaving bosoms this is what they mean i accept no lesser alternative #that’s GOT to hurt though it kinda looks like she isn’t wearing a petticoat. like is the dress cutting off the blood flow? #black sails

    Historical Romance Review: So Speaks the Heart by Johanna Lindsey

    Historical Romance Review: So Speaks the Heart by Johanna Lindsey

    So Speaks the Heart, Johanna Lindsey, Avon, 1983, Robert McGinnis cover art Spoiler & Major Douchebag Hero Alert ⚠ 4 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rating: 4 out of 5. Caveat Emptor: I acknowledge that not all readers can tolerate a cruel, rapacious hero in their romance; that’s why I gave a rare warning for this book. It’s fair to compare So Speaks the Heart (which should be subtitled: Medieval Norman…

    If this were a romance novel, and most especially a bodice ripper, this would be 100% be the beginning of a full-on sex scene.

    And yep, there they go.

    This is not even fanon.

    This is canon.

    June 20, 2021 Life has a way of catching up to all of us eventually, and one’s health is part of that. In my family recently, we have had a couple of close calls with relatives. I had a bad spell around Mother’s Day and have just been recovering from another set of ailments that hit me hard early last week. I’m here and am thankful that my problems are not life-threatening, not yet, thank…

    Idea: Luke as a changeling discovering his powers and Din as a fae king or maybe a fairy hunter? I like the king idea better... so maybe the jedi, that's it, the fae faction Luke belongs to has a long standing feud against the mandalorians which Din has recently taken control of, and maybe both faction decided to unite themselves against the sith, who seek the destruction of everything, and to seal the deal Luke and Din have to marry and conceive a child....

    SOMEBODY HELP ME CONTINUE IN THE COMMENTS PLS!

    #din djarin fanfic #dinluke#star wars#luke skywalker#mand'alor#the mandalorian #i'm really hoping for some gay bodice ripper romance #fae#fantasy#arranged marriage #non conventional gendered characters? #because i doubt fae have the same genitalia that humans do #and even the same gender #no ABO pls

    Please hype more Young Adult Historical Romances. Im tired of seeing Bridgerton-like or bodice ripper books being popular everywhere 😒

    #not to shame your reading preferences but i never expected books like bridgerton being adapted to screen #i have always been comfortable with jane austen and closed door historical romances most of my life #so seeing bodice ripper books gain popularity in the past few months just annoyed me to the core #also the book covers - why r they like that ? #you can't just slap a long dress and call it regency #and the dramatic thigh showing poses lmao #i talk shit
