      hot damn!! i’ve watched desperate romantics all the way through twice. wildly screwed up timeline and invented stuff, but they said they were taking liberties, and WHO THE HELL CARES! it’s the sex, drugs and rock n roll of the Victorian era!

  7. This document moves me, thank you very much!

    I was so moved to see the Marriage Certificate, particularly as I live in Hastings and am always mooching about the church and house that Lizzie stayed in.Thank you.
