So apparently I have a reputation or something as a Raffles fan because friend-who-shall-remain-nameless-for-his-own-good, after briefly discussing something to do with said Victorian crime capers, proceeds to tell me about this £37,000 crown that’s currently in town, its exact location, how very easy it would be to (hypothetically) steal it, give great detail as to how one would (hypothetically) go about this, and how hilarious it would be if someone did (which it would be, for reasons I cannot specify without saying where it is).

I mean

Mate, I want a summer holiday as much you do. But. There’s fandom and there’s fandom, man.

Also it’s too big to fit under a top hat.

Good Omens - Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett
Ineffable.
"It may help to understand human affairs to be clear that most of the great triumphs and tragedies of history are caused, not by people being fundamentally good or fundamentally bad, but by people being fundamentally people."

A Lot, Passionately, and Not: Gold and Enamel Paneled Ring, France c. 1830-1860 [via mlkshk.com]
"Enamelled with roses and daisies, this ring was a charming lover’s gift. The little hinged panels set around the hoop open to reveal the French inscriptions: ‘I love you a little, a lot, passionately and not at all’, based on a game played by plucking the petals from a daisy. In the traditional language of flowers, roses symbolised love and daisies, innocence." [via V&A Digital Collections]
