Random Acts of Douchebaggery
There are some who call me Axe, and sometimes, the words, they are my bitches. My super power is cutting through the bullshit, but I'm really just a girl with a propensity for sharing too much. I've been known to blog about Doctor Who and Torchwood, but my love of sci-fi has transitioned to Orphan Black. Oh, and my current obsession with Darren Criss is getting completely out of hand, and I may or may not blog about Chris Colfer's hair and overall perfection more than I should. Also Glee. Unironically. Did I mention I host a podcast?

wildeanwithoutaclue: being the ignorant european i am, i've just found out that the period between 1870 and 1900 in american history is actually called the gilded age and that gave a whole new perspective/depth to your story.

Ah yes, but don’t feel too badly (and certainly not ignorant). Most Americans don’t know that either and refer to it as Victorian — not realizing, of course, that the title was given to the time period because it fell under Queen Victoria’s rule. *shrug*

Mark Twain coined the term “Gilded Age” actually and it was NOT a pleasant connotation. :)
