1 Samuel 8 - NIV Bible - When Samuel grew old, he appointed his sons as...
And the LORD told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. 8 As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. 9 Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will claim as his rights.” 10 Samuel told all the words of the LORD to the people who were asking him for a king. 11 He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots.

Discussion Questions for ‘The Power’ - The New York Times
The book’s epigraph is a quote from the Bible, 1 Samuel 8, about how Samuel cautions people against wanting a king, but they do not listen. What is the significance of this passage?
3. From the beginning of “The Power,” the reader discovers that it is a book-within-a-book. What did you make of the opening correspondence between Naomi and Neil?

4. “The shape of power is always the same; it is the shape of a tree,” Alderman writes on page 3. “Root to tip, central trunk branching and re-branching, spreading wider in ever-thinner, searching fingers.” What does she mean by this? How does the book’s cover play off this imagery?

The Pool - News & Views - We Must Respect Meghan Markle’s Decision To Cut Out Her Family
It surely can’t be that hard for people to imagine which behaviours might have upset Meghan. Having reportedly asked her family never to speak about her to the press, she saw her father pose for, and profit personally from, paparazzi images in the run-up to his daughter’s wedding, which he consequently declined to attend, then share his fatherly perspective on the royal marriage on a trashy tabloid site. She has endured her half-sister’s relentless and pernicious commentary to anyone offering platform, resulting in a lucrative book deal (touching original title: The Diary Of Princess Pushy’s Sister) and near-residency on the couches of ITV. Even before you get to the half-brother no one really cares about – but who nonetheless put the boot in, effectively saying Meghan would make a dreadful royal-family member – it’s clear why Meghan might feel a tad "let down" and unkeen to hang out en famille.

The One With The Scottish Wolf Lord
I just... okay, there was a ridiculous bodice ripper cover with "SCOTTISH WOLF LORD" and I went from there. THE PREMISE IS CRACKY BUT THE STORY IS NOT. *crosses heart*

The Hales are alive and a royal family in Scotland; Stiles is the waif sent to work in the kitchens, elevated to personal attendant/servant to the young Lord Hale. Who happens to be a wolf who can't shift back. (Not without finding... *spoiler*)

(I just really love romances, can't stop won't stop.)


friends here we are again

tw is the trashiest of my fandoms but still I keep coming back to it

The Not So Beauty to Your Not So Beast - isthatbloodonhisshirt (wasterella) - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“Mieczyslaw Stilinski?”

All eyes instantly turned to Stiles and he felt his stomach drop. They’d taken his dad. They’d actually taken his dad and were here to tell him so.

“Yeah?” he asked in a small voice, feeling ready to be sick.

The second he spoke, two of the four regular guards moved through the rows, the lead guard speaking.

“By order of his Grace Peter Hale, you have been selected to begin your employ under the royal house of Hale.”
