starting to think I should check it out too now <.<
Oh my god not to be aggressive but YOU REALLY NEED TO (esp. if you are a fan of Austen and period dramas in general) 10/10 would recommend
I’ve been ranting about this for the whole day but man I think I like North and South more than Pride & Prejudice (Thornton over Darcy?!). It’s more realistic and it quite reminds me of Austen’s Persuasion. Ugh I need to read the book N&S so badly.
I wish I could tell you how lonely I am. How cold and harsh it is here. Everywhere there is conflict and unkindness. I think God has forsaken this place. I believe I have seen hell and it’s white, it’s snow-white.
Richard Armitage as John Thorton in North and South (TV Mini-Series, 2004).
THERE ARE LITERAL TEARS FALLING DOWN MY CHEEKS BECAUSE I JUST FINISHED NORTH & SOUTH AND THIS HASN’T HAPPENED SINCE JANE EYRE
Holy shit Mr. Thornton, holy shit. There is one more episode left but it is 2:30am lmao I know who I’ll be dreaming about thoguh oH gosh hbye
I am FINALLY watching North and South after like 3 years of swearing to watch it and I had to choose a time when I need to work but you know my procrastination ways…
And I’m internally drying up from all the Richard Armitage and visible internal struggles and gothic heroism and romanticism PLS I can’t BREATHE there was just an intense Armitage gaze shot
If it involves mountains, breakfast food, coffee or campfires - I’m in.

This is insanely good!
Harrison discovered he had an extremely rare antibody in his blood, a makeup of plasma so unique that it holds the cure to rhesus disease, a severe form of anaemia that causes either death or brain damage for newborns.
Researchers were amazed by his blood and its ability to save lives, so they insured his life for a million dollars. His blood has been used to create life-saving injections to combat rhesus. It was even used to help save his own daughter’s child. He’s now 77 and he’s been donating blood every couple weeks for the past 59 years totaling over 1000 blood donations. All of his donations have saved an estimated 2.4 MILLION babies that would’ve suffered from the rhesus condition.
