The homosexual tension between Faustus and Mephistopheles in the Globe’s production of Doctor Faustus is so thick that you can legit suffocate on it. 

Mephistopheles just finds his soul so glorious ;.;

"'We need some way to reach them, ' Camille said. 'We need face-to-face organization. The Jacobins have a club. Lafayette and company just broke away and started the Society of '89. We'll be the Cordeliers Club.'
Georges stood, yanked Camille upright and embraced him. ‘That’s a brilliant idea.’
‘Why Georges, do you adore my idea, or is it just that Gabrielle is out of combat these days?’"

"One can commit errors in theoretical physics, in astronomy, or mathematics with no real negative effects, but politics cannot afford the slightest error…Thus, no effort should be spared to shed light on the complicated art of government, since the smallest stumble results in an enormous trajectory of error."

—Louis-Sebatien Mercier, The Year 2440: A Dream If There Ever Was One (1771), as translated in Robert Darnton’s The Forbidden Bestsellers of Pre-Revolutionary France. The Year 2440, a Utopia that criticized the then-current state of affairs, was a huge illegal bestseller. The author was later a member of the Convention during the French Revolution.

"After the end of the Second Silesian War the letters between Frederick and Voltaire were more frequent and more enthusiastic than ever before — Frederick asking Voltaire to live with him and be his love; Voltaire hanging back, but less and less convincingly. The offer tempted him, but he had promised Mme du Châtelet never to leave her."

—Nancy Mitford, Frederick the Great

I fangirl over a lot of things! Basically any form of unexpected homoeroticism…but that’s really obvious from my blog. Some examples of things I fangirl over that you might not be aware of: illustrations in biology textbooks, dinosaurs, SNES games, Carl Sagan, Cosmos, land snails, visual kei, mythical creatures from old bestiary shit like crocottas, vintage fashion, pretty girls…that about sums me up xD
