So after posting on your side for a week or so i finally created a tumblr, I must admit I know nothing about how it works so I apologizes if you get flooded with my submissions :) I really just wanna join in on yours and Taylors amazing conversations.
Yay! Thank you! Feel free to ask me any questions if you get confused. Now that you’re on tumblr, private asks or fanmail would probably make it easier for you to get my answers. :)
And as an answer to your earlier question, I think The Borgias only ever did the one TCA panel and I’ve never seen footage of it.

Rococo everything but especially Madame de Pomadour’s gowns
1860s ridiculousness (don’t forget the antebellum South!) but especially Empress Elisabeth’s lovely gown here
Anything and everything 15th century Italian Renaissance
Just look at what the Kennedys wore I mean
50s glamour girl gowns
The bustled gowns of the late 19th century (these are from the 1870s)
Paul Wesley was at the lakers game in the kiss cam and he just pointed to his ring.

Anonymous asked: random. im rewatching episode 3x04. Is it just me or just when Lucrezia is about to reach a happy with Alfonso does Cesare mouth to her ''I love you''? That or he's babbling from being aroused or something. But it does look like ''I love you''. And if it is it's really fucking cute.
I think that he’s just babbling from being aroused—totally using that phrase someday, btw. I think he was too, ah, distracted to form a coherent sentence.
lagerrtha asked: ok clearly i have already publicly stated that you are the child of caterina sforza and michael corleone but i have to add that there are definite bits of frollo, cesare, and scarlett o'hara it's a truly unique medley tbh. you are no doubt the product of the most interesting orgy ever to have gone down.
I’m… the product… of an orgy?
My life is at last explained thank you my dear actual tears
Anonymous asked: I know you haven't watched much of Borgia: Faith and Fear, but I'm wondering if you might know why so many people that watch it claim it's more historically accurate?? I wanted to check it out since I've read many comments on the web saying this, yet I couldn't even get through the first episode...
I have no idea why people say it’s more historically accurate than The Borgias. It’s exactly as inaccurate—just in different ways. Borgia sees, from what I remember (SPOILERS):
- Lucrezia thinking Rodrigo is her uncle at first. This is definitely not the case.
- Lucrezia killing Juan.
- Cesare sacrificing his baby to the deities to guarantee Rodrigo’s success
- Cesare being raped
- Cesare being torn between faith and desire when he in actuality never had faith
- Among other things
Faith and Fear is just as inaccurate; neither version is at all accurate. To each their own, but it’s honestly up to which you prefer in terms of acting, production values, and writing. I prefer The Borgias.
But yeah, it’s complete bullshit to say that one is more accurate than the other.
I will be watching the whole thing with Taylor, but tbh the thing I dislike more than what I saw is the entitlement of EITHER fanbase claiming their show is more accurate than the other. So far the most accurate version of the Borgias I’ve read/seen so ar is Blood and Beauty, and even that has some details I have raised my eyebrow over, to say the least.
