It took me forever (because I’m a procrastinator and was working on more important things like beating Dragon Age Origins for the 5th time before Inquisition comes out) but I’m done with the master post. It has footage of them, their works online (except i could only find 3 of Zelda’s), and my favorite biographies. I’m going to do the pictures of them later because that will take a lot more time.
Is there anything you want added to the master post?
Don’t become friends with me in real life cause I will turn every conversation around to the Fitzgeralds.

I’m tempted to say the 20s but I’ll choose something else. I really like the Victorian era how people were interested in science and learning new things. Things like dissection, our modern police force (thanks to Robert Peel, or not depending on your view of the police), Darwin’s Origin of the Species, I could go on and on. Just so much innovation and a zeal for education (formal and not). The suffrage movement also was during this time. Women didn’t have many rights but that’s been true for most of history, there were some laws created to give women more rights like divorced women could have custody of the children or inheritance rights.
No problem! It was really interesting to see how cheap (at least to us) everything was.
