imaginarycircus: vega-ofthe-lyre: PORTRAITS BY BOLDINI The…




The first two tho. One is a dashing young widow (let’s call her Eunice, which is the kind of name that is awkward to the modern ear, but is the kind of name a dashing young widow circa 1900 could pull off with the right clothes and the right attitude)  and the other–almost holding her hand is her unmarried friend (Gonna call her Sarah. IDK. Maybe after Bernhardt. Her wealthy father, Lord Blueblood, was a huge fan??) anyway (and I know that I’m doing something odd here but that parenthetical was too long and without that anyway outside the continuity was totally screwy. But I committed 200% to the parentheticals here. As you can see. That’s why there’s so many of them.) ANYWAY FRIEND SARAH has a huge dowry, but won’t settle on a suitor because she’s really in love with her friend, Eunice, the widow. 100k words. Edwardian fic.

Marthe Bibesco and Gertrude Elizabeth Blood. And it’s kind of hilarious to me how their actual bios echo the backstory you provided.
