Details, Policies, and Questions

{Founder}: :iconvinnycrow:

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

We have a group chatroom: #GentsAndGentlewomen
All members and watchers are more than welcome to participate.

:star: This group has more features to come, including resources/links as well as activities such as contests and "member of the month".
...Eventually.

In the meantime, always feel free to offer suggestions or ask questions.

--------------------------------------------------------------

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred: First and Foremost :bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:

The primary focus of this group is directed towards the gentlemen and gentlewomen of 18th (1700s) and 19th (1800s) century Great Britain.
Everything else (images etcetera that are not specifically of people and/or pertain to 18th/19th century Europe in general) is acceptable, but not the group's focal point.

--------------------------------------------------------------

:bulletpurple::bulletpurple::bulletpurple: I wanna join! :bulletpurple::bulletpurple::bulletpurple:

You're LYING!!1 Well, ok, if you do-- just send a join request; it's automatically accepted.

--------------------------------------------------------------

:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue: Contributing to the Gallery :bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:

Art can be submitted at any time and is automatically approved, so if you wish to contribute, there's no need to hesitate-- and if you want to add a lot of pictures, that's fine! Just don't outright flood the gallery.
You don't have to feel obligated to readily submit work, either; everyone can participate at their own pace.

Please be sure to add your picture to the gallery folder that best suits it; if you are unsure, however, simply add it to the Featured folder.

--------------------------------------------------------------

:bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen: Submitting Blog Entries :bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen:

The blog is primarily used as a means of discussion.
Anyone is allowed to start their own conversation topic-- in fact, I encourage it.

All I ask is that you follow a few simple rules:
1. Make sure that the subject of your blog is relevant to the group's focus.
2. Unless the entry is exceptionally important, involves news, or proposes a contest or the like, only one blog entry is allowed every seven days.

--------------------------------------------------------------

:bulletorange::bulletorange::bulletorange: Some Questions and Answers :bulletorange::bulletorange::bulletorange:
(Cos I don't like answering the same things asked by different people-- but if you do still have questions, feel free to ask; I'm happy to help.)

Q: How about characters that are modern but dress and behave like Victorian gentlemen (etcetera)? Or characters that are from stories about the time period, though not from it?

A: Both are fine, and the latter would have to be acceptable in order for anyone to submit images of OCs, anyway.

Q: Are manipulations of the time period (like Steampunk) acceptable?

A: The previous answer was "yes", therefore this one is, too.

Q: Do the "people" have to be human? I prefer to draw anthros and/or monsters etc, but they still dress according to the time period.

A: Perfectly acceptable. Consider Alice in Wonderland: it's full of anthropomorphic animals and strange creatures.

Q: My story/OCs are either situated a little earlier or later than the 18th/19th century. Is that ok?

A: As long as it's very close to the time range (let's say 1670-1700s or 1899-1910), I've no reason to complain.

Q: My story/character/costume/etc is about the early 1700s, but it's focused on colonial America. Does that mean I can't post it here?

A: Actually, you can, because the American colonies were still considered British for a time, so that counts.

Q: Which countries are in Great Britain? ....No seriously, I honestly don't know!

A: Great Britain is composed of England, Scotland, and Wales.

Q: What if all of my characters are German!?

A: Still Europe, works for me.

Q: Wait, so based on the group description, if I don't like to draw people, but I still draw or write about things that pertain to the time periods, that's fine?

A: Absolutely.

Q: I don't draw very well! I shouldn't submit anything, should I!?

A: No worries! There is merit in everyone's art, whatever the skill level. Just submit whatever you like.

[COM] Dangan Ronpa - Trigger Happy Stepfordization by TheQuelch
Midnight in Prague, Episode 1Narration: “The end of the 16th century was a dark and tumultuous time for many. The Spanish were at war with the English and the Dutch, the Turks were at war with the Hungarians and the Romanian principalities, the Japanese were at war with the Koreans, and the French were at war with themselves. Almost everywhere in the world it seemed there were wars, and plagues, and famines, and disasters. Everywhere, except in Bohemia under the enlightened rule of Kaiser Rudolf II in Prague… here there was peace.”*swords clanging noise*Narration: “…relatively.”*more swords clanging noise*Narration: “My name is Vaclav Miksanek. I am a young gentleman scholar, a poet, a swordsman, and a devout Protestant. I was raised in Tabor, an early Protestant stronghold during the Hussite Wars almost 200 years ago. I had few friends when I was a little boy. I was afraid of the other children, and I spent most of my days reading books and playing with stray dogs. I was often bullied, but it made me stronger. When I grew up, my mother and father enrolled me in the University of Prague, founded by Kaiser Charles IV in the year of our Lord 1347. As a studious man of letters, I never liked it there. The other students were really only interested in drunken debauchery, and most of the professors were no better. Yet they were still insufferably self-righteous and condescending to me in class, and my heterodox views had earned me many enemies. I always felt unwelcome and unwanted. I felt as if I had come from a different world.”Vaclav: “The Earth travels around the Sun, and so do all of the other planets. Retrograde motion is simply what we see on the Earth’s surface when another planet passes by us or vice versa. Tycho Brahe has proven with his observations what Nicolaus Copernicus and Aristarchus of Samos before him have proposed. By the way, is that defense from Camillo Agrippa or Salvator Fabris?” Professor: “What evidence do you have to prove that there are no epicycles? You are rejecting thousands of years of astronomical knowledge. Also, you will not succeed in attacking me with Joachim Meyer.”Vaclav: “Occam’s razor states that the simplest explanation is most likely the correct one, and epicycles are hopelessly convoluted. If God is perfect, then how could he create such an inefficient and inelegant system? Besides, Ferdinand Magellan’s circumnavigation proved that Ptolemy’s estimate of the Earth’s circumference was wrong and Eratosthenes’s estimate was correct. Could he not also be wrong about geocentrism versus heliocentrism? Where have you been for the last 50 years?”Professor: “Where have you been for the last 100 years? No one studies Johannes Liechtenauer or Hans Talhoffer anymore.”Vaclav: “Can your epicycles explain why you still haven’t hit me?”Bystander 1: “Well that argument certainly escalated astronomically.”Bystander 2: “What are those two bookworms even talking about? Who challenges his own professor to a duel?”Bystander 1: “Vaclav also challenged two other professors to duels. All three of them are one after the other every hour on the hour.”Professor: “Only a Protestant would have such an unorthodox view of nature.”Bystander 2: “What’s wrong with Protestants? I’m a Protestant.”Bystander 1: “Most Bohemians are, and they have been for almost 200 years. What kind of Protestant is Vaclav anyways? Lutheran? Utraquist? Unity of the Brethren?”Bystander 2: “Unity of the Brethren, but they are on good terms with the Lutherans.”Professor: “Just because you are the son of a Hungarian Countess does not make it permissible for you to humiliate me in front of my whole class.”Narration: “I suppose I lied about being a gentleman. Of course, my mother wasn’t really a Countess. She was a Slovak peasant from some remote and wild valley in the Carpathian Mountains who fled as a refugee after the Turks invaded Hungary, taking the identity of her slain mistress with her when she resettled in Tabor. She married the disowned illegitimate son of a local patrician who was just as impoverished as she was. Eventually, they borrowed or swindled enough to invest in new silver mines in the Erzgebirge region near the Saxon border, and by the time I was born their wealth was finally beginning to catch up with their lies about their wealth. We were burghers, but not nobles.”Bystander 1: “Let's leave and go to the Gasthof to quench our thirst. That lecture was so dull and tedious.”Bystander 2: “I cannot turn down wine and women. We will drink until we forget.”Headmaster: “Stop! Stop this fighting now! Vaclav, you are officially expelled from this prestigious academy for your reckless behavior and disrespect for authority.”Vaclav: “Headmaster, do you really think I am the only one who has disrespected authority and behaved recklessly?”Narration: “It was unfortunate my schooling had to end this way, but my valet soon arrived with good tidings.”Jaroslav: “Master, the imperial stables are hiring grooms for the Kaiser’s horses! We will be able to live in an apartment on the Golden Lane in close proximity to the castle just like his guards!”Narration: Not long after that day, a plague swept through the city of Prague. All citizens were ordered to stay quarantined in their places of residence, with few exceptions. At first I found the new circumstances to unexpectedly be quite pleasant. Now I had as much time as I wanted to pursue my own studies that truly mattered to me. However, as time passed, I became afflicted with the disease that all scholars are vulnerable to… melancholy. In addition, I began to have terrifying nightmares.Vaclav: “Jaroslav?”Jaroslav: “Yes, master?”Vaclav: “Do you think that a man who commits suicide can still be saved and go to heaven by the grace of God?”Jaroslav: “If you are asking that question, master, you must be planning something you will regret, and it is my duty to protect you.”Vaclav: “I don’t deserve to have you as my servant, Jaroslav. I don’t deserve anything that I have. Why do I get to live like a prince while others starve, freeze, or die from the plague?”Jaroslav: “We are not exactly living like princes, master. This apartment is small, squalid, and the rent is much too high for us. At least you pay me well.”Vaclav: “A prince has to pay stipends to his knights, or hire mercenaries and build bastion forts to protect his subjects, and he has to borrow lots of money from the Fugger and Welser families of Augsburg and go deep into debt if he does not want to burden his subjects by raising taxes.”Jaroslav: “Well spoken, master. You should take out another loan so we can live in a better apartment.”Vaclav: “No. I should sell all of my possessions, give the money to the poor, and become a pilgrim to visit the Holy Land.”Jaroslav: “You have read too many hagiographies and are starting to believe them, master.”Vaclav: “Someday I must learn to work miracles.”Jaroslav: “Have you considered trying alchemy like Kaiser Rudolf? He has a huge laboratory deep within his castle and he invites scholars from all over the world.”Narration: “When I was a little boy, I always wanted to be a prince, but not because I believed in silly fairy tales about fighting dragons and evil sorcerers or rescuing damsels in distress. The crushing weight of the true duties of a prince are disappointing to many, but the idea of participating in a game of grand strategy on a vast global scale only made being a prince more appealing for me. Politics, diplomacy, economics, warfare, and so on would provide a practical use for my intellect. Perhaps I could even make the world a better place? It is a thinking man’s power fantasy. I read every Fürstenspiegel I could find, including the writings of Niccolo Machiavelli. However, as I grew older and learned my intellect was either unneeded or unwanted by a society that primarily values social graces and conformity I could not offer, I began to grow world-weary. Instead of changing the world, I wanted to escape it. Gradually, the idea of living happily ever after with a fair maiden, a notion I had once dismissed as frivolous, became very appealing to me. Yet I had no career, no degree, no money, and no social graces, so I knew I had no chance. The only happily ever after for me would be in the hereafter. Sometimes I considered becoming a monk in some secluded hermitage, or even simply disappearing into the vast Bohemian forests and living among the wolves. Yet I could never entirely commit to abandon my ambitions to make something of myself.”Vaclav: “If I could learn to heal the sick, cast out demons, and turn lead into gold, then perhaps my life would be meaningful and I would not be ashamed of who I am.”Jaroslav: “Get some sleep, master. You will go mad if you are always at work and never rest.” Vaclav: “I cannot rest. If I am not at work with my studies, then I succumb to melancholy.”Jaroslav: “Perhaps you simply have too much black bile in your spleen? Please try to get some rest.”Narration: “I tried to sleep that night, but for many hours I simply laid awake wriggling in pain and screaming and moaning in agony. When I finally fell asleep, I dreamed that I witnessed what seemed to be a visitation from some terrifying celestial messenger… an angel of death.”Demoness disguised as an angel: “You are predestined for damnation, mortal! There is nothing you can do to save your soul! You will be thrown into the lake of unquenchable fire for eternity!” Vaclav: “Have mercy on me, dreadful apparition!”Demoness disguised as an angel: “Your name is not written in the Book of Life.” *the demoness disguised as an angel shows an empty spot on a page within a book via a portal* Vaclav: “I read about those things in the Book of Revelation. If salvation is by faith alone, then have I been faithless? What have I done wrong? What can I do better?”Demoness disguised as an angel: “Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.”Vaclav: “You are quoting the Gospel of Luke. Please, I beg you, show me God’s mercy!”Narration: “I was familiar with the doctrine of Calvinist predestination, but I never believed it. Would a merciful God leave man without a chance to choose to accept the free gift of salvation?”Demoness disguised as an angel: “You are an unholy abomination, the spawn of the devil! Your mother was cursed by a vampiress, the infamous Blood Countess who rose from the grave, so that all those born of her womb would have the nature of a savage beast! You are like an animal, a monster with no self-control, or a broken machine!”Narration: “Thoughts are free. Who can guess them? They fly by like nocturnal shadows. No person can know them. No hunter can shoot them with powder and lead. Thoughts are free… That is how the song went, but sometimes a thought does not originate in one’s own mind. I knew that the visions in my dream were real, but from where did they really originate, and was the revelation about my true nature indeed true? I decided I must pay a visit to Bethlehem Chapel, where Jan Hus once preached almost 200 years ago, to confess my sins. I would do so, even if it meant breaking quarantine and swimming through a sea of death.”

Hi :)

Just wondering if the admin are checking the content that has been coming into the gallery of late?

There's quite a few pieces that have been submitted that have nothing whatsoever to do with the 18th- 19th century theme of this group.

Cheers,

Monica

Oops... I think I accidentally submitted something that doesn't belong here... It's a picture of Madame Ching Shih, a Chinese pirate of the early 19th century. I guess you could stretch it to be European if you consider that the British Navy tried to stop her and failed, but that isn't really mentioned in the picture or its description. Sorry about that. My mistake.
