    I just finished reading this book and it’s absolutely lovely. Published and taking place in the early 1910’s, it’s written i n letter form by our main character, Peggy, a young French woman who comes to America for her coming out in high society.

    I saw a bad take that was like “no one has a masculinisation kink because it’s not demeaning like feminisation” first it doesn’t have to be demeaning, secondly yes they do.

    I may be currently obsessed with the idea of a Genshin royalty AU where you have to play The Game all DAI Winter Palace style and that might mean you have to meet your real love in secret while hiding it from your arranged fiancé who you loathe beyond all else and your real love happens to be your closest knight and/or childhood friend and you have to hide your love but you sneak glances as you dance with different partners and you’re both unable to take your eyes off each other when you finally get to dance together and you hide in the garden just to hold each other’s hands and

    #it's the yearning your honor #I'm as touch-starved as a Victorian Noble #or maybe it's edwardian #can you put a date on styles of yearning #not to be sapphic on main but #but can you imagine knight xiao #CAN YOU imagine #please he's already so handsome #full plate armour??? I'd be done #AND BEIDOU #She's not even royalty she's still a pirate in this AU #BUT SHE'S THE PIRATE THAT LIKE #CONSENTUALLY KIDNAPPS YOU FROM YOUR ROYAL LIFE #SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO MARRY A LOATHSOME PERSON #IT'S GAY YOUR HONOR #(shitpost)

    Celeb Graphology (5 Actors and 1 Drama Teacher)

    Konstantin Sergeyevich Stanislavski, who strongly influenced method acting (though he didn’t take it as far as later teachers), wrote his surname rather illegibly because his surname was originally Alekseyev, and he wanted to keep his profession as an actor secret from his parents, hence the name change, but the sleights of hand in his new surname give away that it’s a disguise of identity.

    Appropriately for an actor and drama teacher, Stanislavski’s writing contained many dramatic flourishes, and unsurprising for an artist of any kind, ups and downs that show bipolar tendencies. Also unsurprising is the fierce “last word” pen stroke, complete with a temper tic, indicating his complete control over his acting classes.

    A method actor by training (continuing the theme), Martin James Landau (and this recurs in his autographs) had tremendously high regard for his father, the source of his own self-esteem, as shown by the giant “L”. His father bravely tried to rescue relatives (the family was Jewish in Austria, during the rise of the Third Reich), and even risked his life to save eight ancient copies of the Torah, hence Martin’s admiration for his dad.

    Otherwise, it’s rather ordinary, “normal” writing, but with an insistent last word pen stroke at the end of his surname, again reflecting pride in his father.

    John Christopher Depp II shows a touch of brilliance in turning the “D” into a human face, but his reputation for being out-of-control is well-earned, and reflects what appears to be severe bipolar symptoms, alternating from the grandiose, giant capital letters (mania) to the precipitous drop at the end of his given name (depression), along with at least 3 temper tics (dysphoria).

    In addition, the complete randomness of the upper zone shapes in his given name indicates some tendency toward psychosis. Then again, all of this enabled Depp to play odd, off-kilter characters without too much acting.

    Maria Lea Carmen Imutan Salonga, like Martin Landau, derives most of her self-esteem from her father (the giant “S”), an Admiral in the Navy of the Philippines.

    As is common among celebrities, there’s a temper tic, a last word pen stroke and OCD tendencies in the perfectionistic covering strokes (especially in the a’s) and the connection of her names. She also has an efficient, time-saving intellect, as shown especially near the end of her surname.

    Thomas Andrew Felton (it helps that this is on ebay, and there is a magnifying feature) has the same combination of fierce temper tics and an OCD need for perfect symmetry that is in my writing (and some comparison could be made between his writing and that of Jodie Comer), but this is offset somewhat by the gentler writing in “Love”.

    Still, playing a villain would not have required the stretch it would for some people (nor would it for me).

    Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson is actually quite a bit like Tom Felton. There’s a bit of gentleness at the start of “Emma”, but the hooking (angry) lower zones in letters that do not ordinarily have lower zones, plus the sharp, long upper zone in the “W”, pointing at herself, and the OCD (self-consciously trying to make the “E” look connected to the first “m”, when in fact it’s not, plus some rigid need for symmetry) are all very similar to Felton’s writing.

    Like Lea Salonga, Watson saves time at the end of her surname by reversing the usual direction of a middle zone.
