loyaulte-me-lie asked: ✓ ✖ ♠

((I previously answered ♠ here))

✓ - How do they react to praise?

((Richard dismisses most praise, especially when he’s just done something amazing. He loves to be falsely modest. If someone very important, or someone he really likes, praises him, Richard will pester them for every detail about how exactly he impressed them. Praise goes to his head very easily, and he’s likely to strut around for hours after a compliment, basking in the knowledge that someone appreciates his talents.))

✖ - Who is someone they just cannot stand?

((Richard utterly despises all of the Woodvilles, but particularly Elizabeth. As a social climber himself, he can’t stand seeing a whole family, and a Lancastrian family too, reach the top before he does.))

isnottogive asked:

What are they afraid of?

((Failure, death (both his own and other people’s - that’s why he avoids most murder scenes), large dogs, sleeping with the door open, and Queen Margaret. And the ghosts of his murder victims, of course.))

Love is a very broad term, good citizen. I hath found that each individual hast some difference of opinion on the subject of just what this elusive “love” truly is. In that way, I am not sure whether or not I meet thy qualification in my feelings for dear Lady Anne to term them “love”.

However, to answer thy question, I suppose my answer is yes, for I hath great affection for that gentle creature.

But of what convinced her? My good citizen, thy thoughts art good as mine for that, for none may know what stirs a woman’s heart to tenderness. Perhaps ‘twas the whole performance in general - I daresay I put Herculean effort into wooing her - but as for what truly swayed her to my side I hath never questioned, ‘til now of course.

I’m sure if thou pose such a question to her she’d give some reply, although do not expect it to be a flattering one.

Filed under darkphoenixgoddess10 love exciting and new no let's not start the references this early in the tags vague answers as per usual yeah I think he does love her but sorta selfishly obviously she fell for those fab legs no one can resist that leg action he's got a hump and withered arm but a spectacular thigh gap deformed thigh gap so much game

the-rickmeister-general asked: What kind of music does King Richard III listen to?

((OOC: I have a couple of ideas in mind, depending on his setting. Historically speaking, I think Richard would be into the most dramatic music around (as he’s a bit of a drama king himself). He would probably be into really exotic music, maybe ordering some French sheet music just to impress people who visit his house. I think he would secretly be obsessed with really religious music as well, not because he likes the subject matter, but he appreciates the pageantry. I can also see him jamming to some of those “lascivious lute pleasings” in between executions.

In a more modern day setting, Richard probably uses music as a medium of self-expression during whatever phase of his life he’s going through. I imagine in his teens he would listen to a lot of angsty “I hate everyone in the world” music. I can also see him around this time sneaking out to house parties, listening to “Lovell and the Dogs” perform every Friday, etc. He probably still has a bunch of band t-shirts in his closet, although they’re way down at the bottom by now.  

In his adult, “Machiavellian mastermind” phase, Richard’s taste in music has probably grown a little more sophisticated. I imagine he listens to cool jazz music (you know he puts on “Careless Whisper” every time Lady Anne walks into a room). He likely keeps up to date with music, but I imagine him as a fan of the classics - although he’s sung “Royals” under his breath far too many times to count. ))

Filed under therickmiestergeneral music headcanons lascivious pleasings of a lute in no fear shakespeare they call it sexy songs on a lute weird you know richard was an intense emo kid I hate everyone everyone hates me so I became a villain all he needs is an american idiot tshirt and he's good too cool for green day never

…Thou hadst better have a good explanation for this, Buckingham.

I thank thee, most gracious sovereign - e’en so, I fear my words would be nothing compared to thy own, as thou hast just proved in thine analogy.

As for Lord Stanley, as yet he has not revealed deep designs of any sort, although he has expressed great interest in my words - although the reason for this interest, my gracious sovereign, will not please thee in the hearing. In order to try and discern just where his loyalties lie…in order that he was to believe my pretence of rebellion…I didst tell him that I desire thy crown.

image

Didst thou indeed? A strangely instinctive response, dost thou not think, Buckingham?

Your majesty, thou knowst as well as I that this was all said in pretence…I feared simple discontent with your reign was not sufficient a reason for Stanley to trust in it, to believe I truly was against thee and so show his true colours. Thou knowst I love thee well, and would never truly wish to do as I have professed.

Thou art most patient with me, noble cousin, for my temper is much provoked these unquiet days.

Thou must pardon me for my shortness withal, but I canst no longer endure Lord Stanley’s brazen cheek. Intensify thy search for treason in him, for my desire for the sight of him behind the Tower’s bars grow’th quicker than ivy overtaketh a wall.

My gracious sovereign, thou hast no need to ask my pardon, I should be the one asking forgiveness of thee for my words. Doubt not that my sentiments towards Lord Stanley echo thine - I shall intensify my search and tell thee all I can as soon as I know of it. I hope that my elaborations upon this false plan will convince him of its supposed truth, and then we shall see where his loyalty truly lies.

Thou speak’st well, Buckingham. If what thou bring’st of Stanley pleaseth me, well, let us say that a certain Earldom waits as reward.

"Well isn’t this quite the role-reversal? I believe I should be kissing your hand, sire, not the other way round."

That wouldst be very bold of thee to say so, Stanley. If York hath been sullied with deception, wouldst it not retain its noble reputation? 

Perhaps…but wert thou not once “mislead” into the ranks of Lancasters, good Stanley?

Thankfully, its reputation is not determined by the few keen enough to spot the deception.

Not mislead, per se - I was born into their ranks sire. My father was one of them. Surely you must understand how difficult it can be to distance oneself from… the circumstances of one’s birth, shall we say?

And what dost thou meanst by that, Stanley? I am of the very highest stock, my blood purer than any Englishman’s alive! I am great York’s heir and no other hath the virtues I possesseth. Perhaps some born of Lancastrian blood may struggle with impurities but to assume all men art alike is hypocrisy! How dares’t thou speak a word to infer otherwise!

I… I do not dare, your Grace, I do not! My father was not Lancastrian in blood, but in heart, and at times it has been difficult to distance myself  from my corrupt upbringing. Similarly, you – despite being the youngest son of noble York with many obstacles in your path– have managed to use your ambition, intelligence and bravery to restore your house to its former glory. I swear, I would never doubt the purity of your blood or your soul, your Grace, and I beseech your forgiveness if my tone was misleading.

Perhaps thou speak’st true, but many more in this kingdom wouldst have that glory sullied. Thy words echo the treason that seethes within this country. Look well that simple words do not “mislead” thee into trouble, Stanley.

However, I may yet grant the forgiveness thou entreat for, if thou art willing to work for it.

Indeed, indeed. Yet words are not simple, are they? More wars have been won with words than on battlefields.

Your will be done, if you tell it me.

Seeing as thy knowledge of the power of words is so extensive, I shouldst have thee put it to good use.

I hath reason to suspect that the lofty Buckingham is swayed by the lies of traitors, and planneth some attack against my person. If thou canst find better reason than I to suspect the same, I shall prefer thee all the more for it.

Indeed, the Earldom of Hereford is ungoverned as of present, and I shouldst like to give it to my most loyal subject…if thou dost understand what I infer.
