i am apparently really late on the uptake
O hai kids.

Pierian Springs
Ernest Hemingway // otro_loco_mas
This means 'another crazy person' in Spanish and is a phrase used to refer to the narrator of "A Clean Well-Lighted Place." The bartender of the café calls him this. It is a great story and you should all read it. (It is also short.) Also, my Hemingway tends to think he is a little crazy, so I thought it was quite apropos.

Dorothy Parker // parkerthelush

Charles Perrault // des_moralites
His fairy tales always had morals at the end. Morality tales. In French, morals = des moralités.

Leopold von Sacher-Masoch // Leo Sachet // leoinfurs
Sacher-Masoch's most famous work was Venus in Furs. It was also said to be a rather semi-autobiographical. He was kind of a fucked-up dude, Sacher-Masoch was.

E. B. White // Andie White // trumpeting_swan
One of E. B. White's most well-known children's books was The Trumpet of the Swan. I would have tried something with Charlotte's Web but I was lazy. Or it wasn't working. I can't remember. It's very late.

Laura Ingalls Wilder // Laura Ingalls // iam_halfpint
The real Laura Ingalls' nickname was Half-Pint. Her Pa always called her 'a pint of sweet cider half-drunk up,' and Half-Pint for short. So. Laura is Half-Pint. Probably one of the cleverer usernames I've done. Or not.

Stage Left
Cordelia // Cori Lawrence // fortunes_frown
From the lines in King Lear: "We are not the first / Who, with best meaning, have incurr'd the worst. / For thee, oppressed king, am I cast down; / Myself could else out-frown false fortune's frown." This is basically right before Cordelia dies. :/

Peter Pan // till_m0rning
From the line "second [star] to the right, and straight on till morning." I hate using numbers in usernames, but I couldn't get it to work any other way.

A Royal Pain
Catherine Howard // Kat Howard // withoutathorn
Henry VIII once called Catherine "a rose without a thorn."

He later had her executed.

Hugh le Despenser // Spencer Hughes // lying_inwait
I'm not quite sure how I came up with this one. It might have just been a phrase I picked up from his Wikipedia page and thought it was fitting. Anyway. I think it is fitting. Also, I love Spencer.

Marie Antoinette // Anna Hapsburg // diamantdauphine
Diamant is French for 'diamond,' and Marie Antoinette got into some trouble with a scandal intended to discredit her and the French monarchy. It involved some really hideous diamond necklace. Also, before Marie Antoinette was Queen, she was the Dauphine, which is the French royal princess, heiress to the throne, etc.

Mary Tudor // Meredith Tudor // nevercryyy
Henry VIII used to brag in company about his daughter, Mary: "This girl never cries." She's a tough cookie.

Robin Hood // Robbie Sherwood // robbingtherich
Rob the rich to feed the poor. If you've ever seen the Disney movie (which you should because it's clearly the best. OOOOO-DE-LALLYYYYYY!), they say this, like, nine thousand times. It's basically Robin Hood's credo.

I'm too lazy to do the ones for the characters I've dropped. I may add them at some point.
