Realistic Historical Sword Fighting

Shoutout to the fuckwits who think longswords were all about random hacking and slashing.

Actually the Medieval long sword, being a one-handed blade, would usually be in conjunction with a shield, which is a style that relies more heavily on building momentum to blocking and hacking, relying on force to drive the blade through the foe.  What’s in these gifs is a fighting style for  the two-handed sword (such as claymores or the Bidenhänder style of blade) and hand and a half (or bastard) sword.  Both of these are generally termed in the Medieval or Renaissance period as “Long Swords”, but more recognized now by the term Great Sword, that was invented for the style in 15th century fencing manuals.

If you’re interested in looking into this further, Old Swordplay: Techniques of the Great Masters by Alfred Hutton is a short, but excellent read.  It’s written by a Victorian, but a military scholar familiar with the older 15th and 14th fencing restructuring and provides excellent diagrams from older fencing manuals to illustrate the more archaic styles.

rerebloging because this is good info.

but imagine if we had tiny little dragons

the size of puppies

and they would go wherever we went sitting on our shoulders and hissing at everyone who tried to touch you because you’re their most special thing in the universe and they are so tiny it’s ridiculously cute

the fact that this post has more notes than i ever expected makes me really glad

In journalism school, you’re taught to look at a whole layout, to see how everything does or does not work together. Here are some reasons why they teach you that.

I am 1000% positive that last one was done on purpose

❝ It was badly done, indeed! You, whom she had known from an infant, whom she had seen grow up from a period when her notice was an honour, to have you now, in thoughtless spirits, and the pride of the moment, laugh at her, humble her–and before her niece, too–and before others, many of whom (certainly some,) would be entirely guided by your treatment of her.–This is not pleasant to you, Emma–and it is very far from pleasant to me; but I must, I will,–I will tell you truths while I can. ❞

YEAH BUDDY YOU TELL EM

'i mean they're NOT fat, you just have to look closely! all the scenes where they look fat, they're either wearing too many layers of clothing, or are shot from awkward angles, or are drawn poorly! when you look at the CORRECT frames the CORRECT way, you can see that ACTUALLY they're not fat AT ALL—'
