My poor little woman and her poor little feet.
Okay so like if someone asks “Cutest fictional couples ever?” and the Blakeneys are not on your list, you sincerely need to go read or watch The Scarlet Pimpernel.
Let me tell you about Sir Percy Blakeney.
Percy Blakeney is so fly, he can use the word “fly” without looking like a dork. He is so fierce, the ladies of the court ask him for fashion tips instead of his smokin’ hot wife. He can fight, drive, sail, manage his estate and do it all while looking dapper as fuck in suits he designed himself because FUCK GENDER NORMS. He met the most clever woman in all of Europe and decided he wouldn’t be satisfied until he made her his wife.
Percy has suffered. His mom got dementia when he was young and it hit his father so hard Percy had to watch both his parents waste away and die. Because of this everyone assumes and therefore treats him like he’s an idiot even though he’s smarter than all those fuckers. So what does he do? He uses that to cover up the fact that he’s fucking vigilante. That’s right. Percy Blakeney is Batman without being a dick about it.
He literally has the manliest dudes in England clamoring to be like him. When he heard innocent people were being tried unjustly in France during the Revolution, he gathered up his bros and started a network of spys and smugglers to get them out. All without his own wife knowing about it.
And he is so hung up on his woman he tells strangers about it. He doesn’t care who knows because he’s Sir Percival Blakeney and he’s above your approval.
So yeah. Go read the Scarlet Pimpernel if you want a romance novel that’s fluffier than a teddy bear factory and also has a plot.
This is for DreamR because I’m convinced he is Sir Percy and I’m very excited to find someone on the internet who loves the Blakeneys as much as I do. <3
