I was reading in my Social Studies book today about the establishing of America, and I came across this phrase:
"Washington favored Hamilton's positions."
Aaaaa, an attack of George Washington/Alexander Hamilton slash!! :eek: No no no, that was just too sick and wrong! Ewaah. *purges mind* I'm an elf fancier, thank you very much.
Anyone else have sudden attacks of dirtyness at school? :whip:

In US History, we watched the movie "1776". Here I have my slashy analysis of the second and third president, and proof that I am SERIOUSLY DESTURBED!
First of all, I fell in love with Thomas Jefferson. That was the first step down the wrong road to be down.
It's amazing how slashy something can be if you turn your head and squint. When John Adams and Ben Franklin are trying to get the Congress to make the Dec. of Independance, someone asks why (John's just trying to stall, because somebody's just declared that they have to be unanimus in voting for independance and there's no way in hell the South's gonna go for it). Then Thomas stands up and gives this beautifully elaborate yet short speech about why they should. Then he winks at John. Youzers. I even drew a picture of it.
Then they (Tom & John) are arguing on the stairs about who should write it. John: "Are you a lover or a patriot?" Tom: "A lover." And he's really talking about his wife, but I said turn your head and squint.
Then John gets Mrs. Jefferson to come to Pennsylvania to motivate Tom into writing, and when he and Ben leave to give the couple some privacy, John's completely surprised when Ben tells him that they (Mr.& Mrs. Jefferson) are 'going for it'. And after a brief conversation with his own wife in a letter, John wakes up underneath Tom's window. Voyeristic much?
When Tom eventually does write it and the Congress is tearing it apart, John leaps to defend it, comparing it to poetry, even when Tom himself has given up.
Then after most of the damage is done, John desides to give Tom a little self esteem boost- John:"It's UNalianable, not INalienable." Tom: "No, I beleive you're incorrect (?)." John: "I went to Harvard." Tom:"I went to William and Mary." Tom doesn't allow the change, John says "Fine", and then they smile at each other. 'Tis love! :biglove:
And of course, there's the fact that they die within hours of each other exactly fiftey years after the Dec. of Independance is signed even though John was a few years older than Tom. And that John's last words were "Jefferson lives!" It's not coincidence, it's fate!!!
So, Forest? You're not all that bad, concidering your compitition. :P I suppose I'm just a pervy president 'shipper. :help:

*cough* While we are *sort of* on the topic of homosexuality and the Presidents, I'd like to point out that James Buchanan, the 15th president, is considered by most historians to have been homosexual. He didn't marry and often wrote some, er, "suggestive" letters to a life-long male friend of his. For some other information, I am providing a snippet from the The Chronicle of Higher Education, (Oct. 15, 1999):
|Buchanan’s long-time living companion, William Rufus King, was referred to by critics as his “better half,” ‘’his wife,” and “Aunt Fancy.” Around Washington, the pair were known as the “Siamese twins,” slang at the time for gays and lesbians. And when King was appointed envoy to France, in 1844, Buchanan lamented to a friend that “I have gone wooing to several gentlemen, but have not succeeded with any of them.” |
Geez, what surprising presidents we have had. As for sudden attacks of dirtiness at schools...hm, my high school did very well in keeping ALL remotely suggestive material out of the classroom.

I remember watching an episode of Time Squad ages ago about Lewis and Clark, and it was soooo slashy *fit of giggles*.
For those who don't know, Time Squad had to go back in time because Lewis and Clark broke up, and they had to get them back together. Larry went with Lewis and when Clark found out he beat up Larry and then asked Lewis if he wanted to go "exploring" with him. Lewis burst into happy tears and said yes. It was so cute.

Ha... all of my friends saw 1776 and I didn't get to... They started writing President slash about it.
I think I'll have to rent it... you know, just for research's sake.
Ever since seeing The Crossing I've thought Alexander Hamilton was hot...

It's not just US history, lately I've been reading up on a bit of English history and *damn* everyone seems to be gay (unsurprisingly :P )
And I'm not just talking about Edward II :lol:
I'm reading a book on Mrs Keppel (greatgrandmother of Camilla). Apperently the Keppels got their hereditary titles cos their ancestor Joost van Keppel was the toyboy of King William III.
Mrs Keppel was the mistress of king Edward VII, who's son was incidentely gay. Her husband had his own affairs with other men. Their daughter was lesbian and had an affair with another noble women whos husband was also gay!
And I'm only halfway through the book :rolleyes:

Yeah, Lesbians tended to get away with a lot in those days...and even later too as Queen Victoria never acnowledged the existance of lesbians, did she?
This calls for a.....
:lemon: :lemon: :lemon: :lemon: :lemon: :lemon: :lemon: :lemon:
moment, thank you....
I still do find that surprising, i mean if you think about it, in those days it would be intelligent to assume that if there are gay men there will be gay women....
Still thinking about that wonderful series, Tipping the Velvet...now there were two beautiful girls! :lovey:
