IN THE ONGOING HISTORY OF SAMIRA BEING A LIFERUINER, she made up a story on twitter for hellotailor and me when we cried about wanting six books and a movie about the lady knight and her willowy boyfriend:
"I caught two kids trying to steal his laundry," she jokes to another knight at the table, while willowy poet boyfriend launches into a lute solo.
"A fine tale," says the lady of the keep, "have you another?" And willowy poet boyfriend launches immediately into a recounting of his lady knight’s last tournament. “Her great lance, how it sank into the armour of those she fought, her smile like radiant sunshine in a thimble caught, her muscles like sinew & finest steel pulled taut…”
Lady knight smiles round her table. “He likes it when I fight. Gets him all hot,” winks and flexes her arm a bit. "Though, to be fair," she mutters, eyes on the tight fit of his breeches and he bends deep over his lute, "I fought those kids for a worthy cause.” The knight next to her swallows audibly and crosses his legs, flushed.
Later that night, she listens to the sweet sounds he makes, high and threadbare, as she rides him, hips flexing. "Never fear, my sweet," she whispers into his hair, "I am your most humble servant. I shall guide you through this as well.”
The next morning she wakes up, grumpy and half sore, hair a scraggle and in her face, to him mumbling, “but nothing rhymes with ecstasy,” sounding incredibly woe-begone.
"What are you doing?" she grumbles, scrubbing at her face.
"Telling our tale," he says, earnest, "letting the people know how I worship at your altar.”
She laughs. “Any more worshipping at my altar today and I won’t be able to get back on my horse.”
"Not all great deeds are conducted astride."
"You sure thought the opposite last night."
"Those deeds were great too," he blushes, "but I mean more that you are capable even without your horse."
"Oh baby, don’t I know it," she says, and wiggles her eyebrows at him.
"He seems a bit… odd," mutters her opponent at their next meet, watching him wave one of her unders in the stands.
"He’s a good man though," she laughs, and adds, elbowing him in the side, "/and/ he’s got a poet’s tongue."
"How came you by such a paragon?"
"Oh, he wanted me to sign his lute at one of my tourneys. How could I resist?"
"And he sung your praises then on?"
"Well," she points out, "the chorus was pretty great, but he did put in a verse about how terrible my penmanship is.”
"Ah," he says, awkward. "How… unusual a courtship."
"Keeps me on my toes."
There’s been a lot of talk ‘bout the potential of solos from the X-Men franchise being made. When asked if a Magneto spinoff’s a possibility, Michael Fassbender seems confident there will be one. Hugh Jackman mentions an existing script to Fassbender, but the latter says it’s from before First Class. It’s likely the script for X-Men Origins: Magneto, which got scrapped.

This is London too omg
This is probably every major city but New Yorkers are famous for the invisible sidewalk lanes.
The DC version of this would just be a red-faced commuter on an escalator yelling STAND ON THE RIGHT.
Hanging around Kiyomizu-machi today.
