“Julie D’Aubigny was a 17th-century bisexual French opera singer and fencing master who killed or wounded at least ten men in life-or-death duels, performed nightly shows on the biggest and most highly-respected opera stage in the world, and once took the Holy Orders just so that she could sneak into a convent and bang a nun. If nothing in that sentence at least marginally interests you, I have no idea why you’re visiting this website.”

#dear diary: today is the worst day of my LIFE. this is worse than the day lady catelyn got hodor to salt the grass outside my window in the shape of the word BASTARD so i would see it every morning. The Lord Commander has assigned me to the stewards - you read that right, diary - the STEWARDS. All i ever wanted was go behind the wall and kill shit, and maybe take out my bastardly frustrations on a wildling or two, is that so much to ask? I’m at least ten times cooler than anyone else here, and i KNOW i’m the only one who shampoos regularly. I mean, I’ve got a goddamn DIREWOLF. What’s Ghost supposed to do, put on an apron and serve people summerwine? HE’S A WOLF. HE CAN’T SERVE PEOPLE DRINNKS. HE HAS NO FINGERS. Why does no one understand? Why am I so alone? You know what? Fuck this noise. I’m going to the Nightfort where it’s FUN.
Alexandria’s Genesis, a.k.a violet eyes (an urban myth of violet eyes).
When someone is born with Alexandria’s Genesis, their eyes are blue or gray at birth. After six months, the eyes begin to change from their original color to purple, and this process lasts six months. During puberty, the color deepens to dark purple, a deep purple, a royal purple, or a violet-blue color and remains that way. It does not affect the person’s eyesight.
Those who have this mutation will never grow any facial, body, pubic, or anal hair (not including hair on their head, on their ears, noses, eyebrows and eyelashes) Women also do not menstruate, but are fertile.
Sadly, this mutation (while violet eyes are just extremely rare) is classified as an urban myth. Still, the beauty of the explanation never ceases to fascinate all.
I am mystified….
Was the myth started in fanfiction because I think the other name this goes by is ‘Mary Sue’
