The Ships of Downton Abbey Had Captains Before You Joined Their Crews

(Don’t worry, there aren’t any spoilers here for the latest season (4), just some familiar faces.)

So I’ve been watching Downton Abbey s4 lately, and I’m coming to realize that one of the (many) things that makes it a unique show is that whatever pairing you happen to ship, all of the characters are such gossips and busybodies that one of them has surely gotten there first.

Some examples:

Lady Sarah Forbes Bonetta Davies (photographed-Camille Silvy,1862) born into a royal West African dynasty, and orphaned in 1848, when five years old, when her parents were killed in a slave-hunting war. In 1850, Sarah was taken to England and presented to Queen Victoria, a “gift” from the King of Dahomey. She became the “Queen’s Goddaughter” and a celebrity known for her extraordinary intelligence. She spent her life between the British royal household and in Africa until her death in 1880.

Someone make a biopic about her, stat.

THIS GIRL IS TUMBLR PERSONIFIED

holy shit you weren’t kidding

I highly recommend watching this

"have you ever read erotic harry potter fiction?

no?

oh well neither have I….”

this is awesome

Every time she changed topics, I was like “Will this be tumblr, too?”

AND IT WAS.

(Also her shirt is approximately the correct color, so extra credit for that, too.)

Sansa Stark wedding dress. Cosplay by moonflowerlights photography by Bryan Humphrey- mad scientist with a camera.
Entire outfit made by me. All the embroidery and beading is done by hand. There’s around 400 hrs of work total in the outfit, which I started mid June.

1. That dress is gorgeous and very impressive, and that lady looks totally fantastic.
2. I really hope this isn’t actually for a theme wedding or something, because, y’know, Sansa doesn’t have the best track record for successful marriages.moonflowerlights:
