October is UK Black History Month, so I’m going to be sharing posts this month featuring iconic Black British/Britain-based women.
Mary Prince was born in Bermuda on the 1st October 1788, making today her 233rd birthday. While visiting Britain, a change in the law allowed her to escape the family she was enslaved by, and she began working for the Anti-Slavery Society. During this time, she wrote her autobiography, “The History of Mary Prince”, believed to be the earliest autobiography of a black woman published in England. The book was so popular it was reprinted twice in its first year, and she has been credited as playing a ‘crucial role in the abolition campaign’. Unfortunately little is known about her later life, or when she died.
Mary Prince is featured in a permanent exhibition in the London Docklands Museum, and is commemorated by a plaque near where she lived in Bloomsbury.
the line from jane austen’s emma that goes “i cannot make speeches…if i loved you less i might be able to talk about it more. but you know who i am. you hear nothing but the truth from me.” but it’s eddie
partially inspired by this fic by @capseycartwright. special thanks to my love @zeethebooknerd ❤
buck/eddie, 1108 words, fluff.
the first time they kiss is when chris and eddie have had a fight, and eddie’s in the kitchen upset and spiralling and doubting himself, and buck reassures him and comforts him and promises that he’s not going anywhere. it’s small, it’s quick, barely noticeable among buck’s words and the way he has their foreheads pressed together, but it warms eddie to his core.
they don’t talk about it.
maybe it’s for the best — maybe they’re not ready, but it’s okay because christopher comes out and he and eddie apologise to each other and eddie still has his family. he still has his son in his arms, and he still has buck, with fond glances and soft touches and seamless partnership and his friendship.
(if his gaze lingers sometimes, if every time he touches buck he wants to grab on and never let go, well. he’ll tell buck one day.
I think my favorite jokes are the ones that weren’t even all that funny until I was an adult, and now they’re fucking hilarious. I’m not even talking about the dirty jokes. I’m talking about in Finding Nemo where the sharks are having fucking AA for fish eating. Remember that shit? “I am a nice shark, not a mindless eating machine. If I am to change this image, I must first change myself.” Who ever thought of that? That was brilliant. Or what about that time in Shrek 2 where Shrek and Donkey infiltrate the castle pretending to be union workers? Little me didn’t give a shit about unions but big me is remembering Shrek going “It’s okay buddy, we’re from the union” and the desk worker secretively “we don’t even have dental,” and Shrek just shakes his head and looks at Donkey like he can’t believe this shit and goes, “They don’t even have dental.” What the fuck. I’m dying of laughter. Who comes up with this shit.
