"Mildred Reed is his first-great-grandmother on George Washington, and on Obama, Mildred Reed is his tenth-great-grandmother."
- BridgeAnne d’Avignon, 12-year-old genealogist
I know, six months late to the party, my mind is still blown. All US presidents except Martin van Buren are descended from John Lackland Plantagenet. Yes, that John Lackland Plantaganet. Yes, all US presidents as of 2013.
12-Year-Old Discovers All U.S. Presidents Are Direct Descendants of King John Of England (by CONTAGIONNEWSdotcom)
THIS IS HORRIBLE
good job to this child for acknowledging that lineage can be passed on by people who have vaginas, which APPARENTLY THEY DIDN’T REALIZE BEFORE NOW??
also good job being Dutch, Martin Van Buren
no matter what you do from here on out, this dish is already a success

how did bb die? D:
SUPER DEPRESSING UH it’s complicated but basically poor Marijn got bumped off by an uncle in order to remove him from the line of inheritance. D: (An inheritance that M didn’t even want because the money would tie him forever to his monumentally shitty family.)

a first attempt at some bbys from my ghost story! The kiddo on the left is Marijn Van Laaren (born 1881), in the happy days before becoming a ghost trapped forever in the same house. (That’s a dirty lie, Marijn’s pre-death existence was pretty shitty too.)
And then there is Leon Spiegel (born 1920), who looks a little like Tom Riddle but IT’S NOT HIS FAULT. He’s a sweet kid — he’s just also a tiny ball of sarcasm with a ton of debilitating health problems and usually looks like he’s at death’s door.
And their story even has a plot, so it might actually get written. \:D/
Ask me questions about them if you are curious?

Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing and I’ll tell you something about the story I’d write for that combination (i.e. write a snippet from the story or write not!fic or tell you the title and summary for the story I would write)
- pretending to be married/fake dating
- high school/college AU
- handcuffed together
- next-door neighbors AU
- secretly a virgin
- be careful what you wish for
- accidental baby acquisition
- truth or dare
- sharing a bed
- road trip
- groundhog’s day/time travel

I have stuff I should be writing and already committed to do (which I WILL GET DONE *shakes fist at sky*) but this looks like fun so here we go.

I sincerely believe that everyone who wears bras has that one bra that is wicked uncomfortable but was super expensive and they wish it would break so they don’t have to wear it anymore
