This thread is for discussing historical figures from a fan perspective:
>fanfic or fanart of historical figures
>shipping them with yourself or others (m/m, f/m or f/f all welcome)
>simply shitposting about them

this is about dead historical figures, not living people or fictional characters.
please don't start arguments about husbandos or fujos or cringe. ignore and report bait.

I just made a shitty edit of my historic husbando based off of one that I saw a girl make for Franz Kafka. I sent it to my friends because it felt sad to make it and have no one to show it to (and I'm not going to post it on fucking tiktok or something). Anyway I hope they don't think I'm a freak lol. It's normal for them to share stuff about their celebrity husbandos so I feel like it's only fair that I get to share mine, but obviously one of these things is more socially acceptable than the other.

The Hamilton fandom (from general fans to shippers) has aged poorly more than any other fandom community. I think it originated from a period of american liberal optimism that no longer exists. Currently everyone (and I mean everyone) really despises America, from hyper wokies, moderates, and even the right. so a glorified fan-fiction that portrays america in a positive light is not likely to be popular today. The cope from the remainder fans is simply accepting that the characters from the musical are basically OCs(picrel is fanon Hamilton meeting the real Hamilton). The only sub-section community that remains genuine is the subreddit, but that's mainly due to artificial means thanks to the moderators

Bahaha, Naporwave. That's great. I know we've had a few Napoleonfags over the years, were you one of the original ones? Was there a specific Napoleon moment that turned you into a Napoleonfag?

Was the musical actually any good? From both a historic or entertainment basis. I think I watched the first thirty minutes, but I couldn't be bothered to finish it. I completely agree with your sentiment though. It's insane how much things have changed from 2015 to now. Something about the way that musical is presented has not aged very well to resonate with the times. On the contrary, Stephen Sondheim's Assassins has aged quite well in my opinionI personally don't mind Hamilton fujos though lol. I love when women can be cringe and free.

No. 372819

>>372814
>Was the musical actually any good?
I mean the songs were good but I've only watched the animatics of the musical and it seems like that was what the majority for the fanbase as well. But from a historical perspective it's pretty bad. I understand the intention of lin-manuel miranda, as the whole concept revolved around american progressivism, so the british characters were played by white actors speaking with a faux-old english accenst, while the Americans were played "pocs" who spoke more contemporary. Again the musical promotes a sense of American exceptionalism and it inaccurately represents certain historical events, for example IRL King George was barely mentioned and the grievances of the colonists were mostly directed towards the Prime Minister Lord North and it's just a cultural shirt where people don't have a lot more hatred towards american liberals and progressives.

i've been openly napoleonfagging on here for a couple years i'd say. there defenitiely used to be several of us, i hope the others are still around
i became a napoleonfag by accident. i'm forst and foremost a nelsonfag, have been since i was a kid, but before i learned how to read english, it was very hard to find stuff about him in my native language (french) and most of it was in books about the napoleonic era jn general. so i eded up gradualy warming up to naps. i like him as hotshot young general bonaparte more than the flabby ol' emperor tho
>>372734
i don't rly consider hamilton fans historyfags per se because the hamilton characters may as well be OCs and most fans donnt actually gaf about the actual 18th century alexander hamilton, only the musical guy. but im biased bc i don't care for musicals and i hate lin manuel miranda

There's very little information about my husbando out there so as a way to feel closer to him I've been trying to learn more about the time period he lived in, watching shows set in that era, etc. Sadly there are no colored photos of him, so I try to look at what other people wore in that era and try to imagine what his clothes would have looked like (it's not hard because there's only one outfit to imagine- he only owned one suit lol). The hardest part is trying to imagine his voice though. Absolutely no way in hell that I'd be able to guess what he sounded like and I can't find any descriptions from others of what he sounded like either.

I posted about him earlier in the thread so I hope I'm not being too repetitive, but it's Leon Czolgosz who assassinated William McKinley in 1901. There are only a handful of pictures of him that exist and there's so little information about him (they executed him pretty shortly after the assassination), but I am very endeared toward what I do know. I've been trying to read and learn more about the Gilded Age since that was the era he grew up in. Typical quiet, loner type who was depressed and didn't want to work (relatable). He became enamored with anarchy after hearing a speech given by Emma Goldman, so she introduced him to some of her friends in hopes he would join the cause. He ended up being such a sperg about it that they thought he was a spy sent from the government and they posted a warning ad about him in their magazine kek. I could go on and on about him honestly.

All suffragette means is someone who sought out women's suffrage through violent/militant means. Plenty of them were racists, imperialists, fascists, did not care much for feminism outside of getting the vote, etc. etc., including the one you're caping for. A lot of "good" people in history were not very "good" in many other aspects, which is why it's dumb to moralfag in a history thread.

is underaged, so yeah it makes sense to call that out. I'm sure many normies think it's cringe and disrespectful to hang out on a website dedicated to making fun of neurodivergent, mentally ill or stigmatized women, so what are you going on about? There's no porn in this thread, and no one has mentioned anything about porn except for you.

I used to love Hornblower as a teen. I still like Age of Sail even though my interest has drifted towards the Romantics.

Tell me more about your husbandos or ships, anon. Or literal ships!

Manfred, my beloved. I'll see you von Richthofen and raise you a twink named Albert Ball. (although if you like the infantry, 2/3 trench poets were in canon homo with each other.)

Hornblower, a book series/drama with very high budget. One film a year was made. The men were very very hot and there was good ho yay between the leads. The one in blue is the MC, a seasick twink who wants to be a naval officer, and the one in red was a one-off character whom the entire fanbase proceeded to lose their shit over, going so far as to name him 'slutbunny'.

Not so much the age of sail, but I do like the heroic age of Antarctic exploration, if that counts? Pretty similar

Me! I love Hornblower and the Aubrey-Maturin novels. I also got into the Franklin expedition because of that AMC series about it. The Age of Sail fandom on Tumblr is sadly overrun by gendies, so it’s nice to find other women who are into this stuff without the other nonsense.

Segments of some Russian documentary on Naps. Can't find the title now, sadly, even though I had it somewhere at one point. I'll try to look for it in my spare time.
