Title: Untitled: Part One
Character(s) or Pairing(s): Retired military veteran Major Arthur Kirkland and nurse Anna Jones (female!America) in Victorian England
Rating: PG, language, nothing serious
Summary: After returning from South East Asia with the Royal Army, Arthur Kirkland has served his time and will retire, Kindly, the military hospital is providing him with a live-in nurse to assist him while his wound heals. Anna Jones, who dreams of dancing, pops up and mistakes him for the butler.
Note: Posting over on Dream Width now.

Though he was certain he didn’t want to see South Eastern Asia ever again, except perhaps by train, passing through. A bag of tea to pick up and a port of that wine they made, terrible in its potency, good for a lark. If one didn’t mind losing one’s clothes. To which Major Kirkland was mightily opposed.

Y'all have a good year. :) Thank for the support and kindness.

Turkey and Islam

October 5th, 2011 (07:55 pm)

This is actually not a fanfic at all. I had to do a short paper for my Turkish class. I wanted to make sure I never lost it and I was like, "Oh yeah....I have a writing journal. Who says it only has to be for fanfic."

I DO WHAT I WANT....but only with my writing journalCollapse )

All my citations were taken out, of course, because I did the HTML settings. Also, this paper was so short...I only had three sources. We only have one weekend to do it. And granted, my teachers just wanted us to learn something. It only had to be three pages---but I could have gone on for quite a few more. There are only a few books in the library here.

I miss the research library at my college. Going there definitely made me write longer papers, hahaha.

He'd be the best. I'd do all the genetic and biological work, you could make him shoot lasers from his eyes and Germany would install a state-of-the-art engineered super-efficient motor into his brain. So that way he could still be grouchy, romantic and be able to cook--all at once.Collapse )

Cursing at his horse to shut up. Cursing whenever he knocked something over. He'd been at this for awhile, she'd have thought he'd remembered where the wind chimes were...Collapse )

This was suppose to be just a short aside. It got kind of long, so I put it behind a cut.

Well, can't bring Prussia in here. He always wants to jump up on the platform and mess with the ornaments. Especially--like, they have the trombones and trumpets buried in the branches. Those are real, you know? He'd want to try and play one.Collapse )

I was actually just in Chicago and at Macy's on Monday. So I'm going to post the pictures I got of the tree.

Pictures!!Collapse )

[Asides] First Snowfall

November 5th, 2010 (01:32 pm)

America is a summer nation. He's in the prime of his life, still young and strong. He's only got a few scars. A few aches. A few pains.

Compared to those around him, of course.

He often feels his youth. But sometimes that isn't always bad. Sometimes, he can revel in it.

He still has a childlike fascination with the first snowfall of the season. Everyone acts like Russia and Canada and the northern Europeans are the only ones who understand snow.

But seriously, all of America's northern states get a taste of the white stuff every year. They love the stuff.

He loves the stuff.

A summer nation he may be--known for his southern sun and western deserts but there is nothing, to him, that quite compares to the first snowfall. Whether it sticks or not isn't the point, what matters is that for a few glorious moments, when he's in Indiana's northern region, almost near the Michigan border, he pulls his truck over and walks out to a corn field--recently harvested, so it still smells sweet--and he looks up.

White bits fall all around him, like fairy dust (or what he imagines fairy dust is like), the tail of a comet, star light.

He reached out his bare hands into crisp November air and lets it fall and melt onto his skin.

It doesn't last long--and maybe that's the bittersweet part of it. The real snows won't start (at least not in northern Indiana) until later. But it's one of those things.

He can feel the wonder of young people from the south that are in college up north and they run outside to see this thing that they have never witnessed. They call their moms and talk about it, how beautiful it is. How soft and pretty and cold! So cold! (And that will be their focus in a few weeks, forget pretty--it's so cold!)

While his northerners smile and can't help but peer out. In offices, at campuses, in households, at retailers, people stop together and go to peer out the windows at something so simple as snowfall.

How extraordinary that such a small thing can bring people together to smile and look and point.

He loves it.

Tonight, it's a Carnival half-mask--black and gold, with bells and wild feathers. He's got a wig made of gray raffia, rabbit feet and more bells. He wears no shirt and he has on a skirt made of leather throngs. There's body glitter on him--France smeared it on his face.Collapse )
