I have now sent two asks to you, and I was wondering 1) if it would be possible to become a History Peep and 2) how this is done? Do I need an application (I can do that)? A permission slip signed by currently active History Peeps? An offering of oranges and pigeons? It would be an honor above all other honors. Signed, Megan (kindlygoawaynow)

If you want to be a peep, you’re a peep! c: Just like that!
But as a founding member I would be happy to sign your permission slip with pictures of Hamilton and unicorns anyway
Weeeeell, if that’s what you’d like to do…
At school, dressed up as Oscar Wilde for Halloween. Nobody gets it.
"My Lucile, my dear Louploup, my darling, I conjure you, do not call upon me; your cries will rend my heart even at the bottom of my grave. Care for your little one; life for my Horace; speak of him to me. Tell him, hereafter, what he cannot yet understand, that I should have loved him well. Notwithstanding my punishment, I believe that there is a God. My blood will wash out my faults, my human weaknesses; and for the good of what I have done, for my virtues, my love of liberty, God will reward me. I shall see you again one day. O Lucile! Annette! Feeling as I do, is death so great an evil, delivering me from the sight of so many crimes? Goodbye, Loulou, my life, my soul, my divinity on earth! I leave you to good friends - all the sensible and virtuous men who remain. Goodbye, Lucile! my Lucile! my dear Lucile! Goodbye Horace, Annette, Adele! Adieu, my father! The shores of life recede from me! I see you still, my Lucile, my beloved! I see her, my Lucile! my bound hands embrace you, and my head as it falls rests its dying eyes upon you!"
A drawing (probably taking place circa 1792) of Camille Desmoulins (1760-1794), his wife Lucile (1770-1794) and their only son Horace (1792-1825). Camille and Lucile’s appearances are based upon the 1983 movie Danton and Horace’s is based upon a loaf of bread.
So instead of starting the Saint-Just extravaganza drawing I storyboarded a few days ago, I’m drawing the Desmoulins family instead and DYING OF EMOTIONS.
The only known video footage of Anne Frank
In which dying becomes even more totally worth it.
Antoine Saint-Just went to town
Riding on a pony
Stuck some feathers in his hat
And called it la grande révolution de la France! Pourquoi êtes-vous perdre du temps avec des comptines folles?
