"HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO FIGHT THIS THING" 

*ten minutes later* 

"that…was surprisingly easy." 

*video game boss that is just normal dude with sword* 

"ahhh this’ll probably be easy" 

*ten hours later*

"fuck. shit. god. I can’t do this anymore. you’ve bested me. I will no longer play a game again. I have been disgraced."

  • Kvothe: oh god i can't believe it has actually taken me SEVERAL DAYS to conceive of and complete this insanely complex invention of great value to humanity I'm feeling so humiliated right now
  • everyone else:

Half-Mourning Dress
1910-1912
The Victoria & Albert Museum

What’s a “half-mourning” dress?  Mourning in the front, party in the back?

Half-Mourning was the third stage of mourning for a widow. She would be expected to mourn her husband for at least two years, the stages being Full Mourning, Second Mourning and Half-Mourning. The different stages regulated what they would be wearing, with Full Mourning being all black and with no ornamentation, including the wodow’s veil, and the stages after that introducing some jewellery and modest ornamentation. When in Half-Mourning you would gradually include fabrics in other colors and sort of ease your way out of mourning. 
Wow, I am happy you made that joke so I could interpert it as a serious question and have an excuse to ramble on about clothing customs of the past, I am a historical fashion nerd.

That’s very informative, but I’m going to stick with my original head canon:


I love both the informed fashion history and the hilariously off-the-wall halves of this post.
