[Highly Romanticized] Mark Antony/Cleopatra AU: Arthur Pendragon, recently announced Emperor of Rome, summons the Pharaoh of Egypt, Merlin Emrys, to initiate an allegiance between their forces. Intellectual and beautiful, Merlin complies and sets out to seduce Arthur in order to achieve maximum status and power. Arthur need not be seduced as he quickly falls for Merlin, who in turn, although wary of where he lets his heart lie, drops the facade and does the same. Envious of the power that Arthur has achieved through his battles and alliance with Egypt, his own allies wage a war on Merlin and Arthur’s united forces. Amidst the battle, false news of Merlin’s death reaches Arthur where he deems life no longer worth living and throws himself on his sword. Shattered at the news of Arthur’s suicide, Merlin allows an asp to bite him, poisoning himself happily to join Arthur in the afterlife.
“I have always loved you, Merlin.”
“And I have always known.”
My first born son to whomever writes something like this.
“I’ll never forget the day Marilyn and I were walking around New York City, just having a stroll on a nice day. She loved New York because no one bothered her there like they did in Hollywood, she could put on her plain-jane clothes and no one would notice her. She loved that. So as we we’re walking down Broadway, she turns to me and says ‘Do you want to see me become her?’ I didn’t know what she meant but I just said ‘Yes’- and then I saw it. I don’t know how to explain what she did because it was so very subtle, but she turned something on within herself that was almost like magic. And suddenly cars were slowing and people were turning their heads and stopping to stare. They were recognizing that this was Marilyn Monroe as if she pulled off a mask or something, even though a second ago nobody noticed her. I had never seen anything like it before.” - Amy Greene, wife of Marilyn’s personal photographer Milton Greene
Because most of the garments from this Autumn/Winter collection are design to look rather nomadic, some of the models are instructed to look lost in direction at the runway- replicating the way a real traveler would be in real life.
ps: Look at how the Japanese shorty at the back is enjoying the struggle. Especially on the last gif.
