Here they talked of revolution.
Here it was they lit the flame.
Here they sang about tomorrow
And tomorrow never came.
Rubeus Remus Potter. You were named after the only two people at Hogwarts who seemed to give shit about me, because come on who else would I name you after? A verbally abusive dickbag who was in love with my mum and gave me shit all my life and someone who convinced a bunch of children that they needed to be soldiers? What kind of awful aspirations would that make you end up having? Come on son I’m not an idiot…
April 10-15, 1912
Man was dealt a harsh reminder that he was not the most powerful force in the universe
102 years ago today. RIP
"On the 12th August, 1904, the little Grand Duke, Czarovitch was born….He was baptised when he was twelve days old… The little sisters were delighted with the new brother, and made many quaint and critical remarks about him. They were at the baptism dressed in Russian Court costume of blue satin, brocaded in silver and trimmed with silver braid and buttons, and they wore silver shoes. Their head-dresses were of blue velvet embroidered with pearls; they looked very sweet and quaint.” (M. Eagar, Six Years at the Russian Court)
