"No you fool!! You could fall!!"
WHY IS THIS THE MOST ADORABLE THING THAT I’VE EVER SEEN
I have no idea how to write conversations. I live a bit of a quiet life and I don't know how people talk. Pretty stupid thing to ask for help about but it's a recurring problem in all of my writing. Do you have any resources or advice
It’s not stupid at all, Anon. We all have different strengths and problem areas. There are loads of great resources for this, so I don’t believe there’s anything I can add to the advice that’s already out there. I hope some of these help…!

Reblogging because it looks like the firetide is coming in. TIDE OF FIRE. Gets the thinkies going.
Medieval men’s and women’s costumes from the 1300s-1400s
For real? Wow.
definitely reproductions, not real. Extant costumes only really go back to the 1700s. Anything from that is extremely rare, much less complete costumes. Not to mention that these are all in mint condition, no fading, no yellowing, no fraying, no holes. Anything from medieval europe exists in scraps and pieces.
It actually hasn’t snowed where I am this winter which is unusual. I’ve actually missed it!
