Here is a masterlist of 70 high school face claims (age range: 14-18) sorted into the four year levels. This list consists of both well-known and underused face claims, with varying roles and ethnicities. Also included are gif hunts for most face claims, none of which are mine. Aside from casting high schoolers accurately, this list can also help with looking for Hogwarts students, Panem tributes, or Half-Blood campers.

We should see all the things that make people and the world different and not pretend that we are colorblind or that one story is enough to represent a whole group of people.

writing-questions-answered:

Pretty solid, but some corrections need to be made:

  • Medieval kings had absolute power over their kingdoms in practice only. There were exceptions like Charlemagne and Albert the Great that somehow managed to exert centralizing power over their nations, but for the most part, the king was the nobles’ bitch until he started collecting taxes directly from the burgher/city-dwelling class.
  • Medieval kings generally did the most battlefield leading before the 1100s. They were expected to direct troops and provide a strategy, but they weren’t screaming into battle headfirst unless you were a diehard like Richard the Lionheart (who incidentally died in battle). Also, most battles in the Middle Ages were sieges.
  • Hoo boy. The king owned all that land and all those castles mostly in practice. If he tried to take it away, he’d have a huge legal battle - or actual battle - on his hands. Kings often redistributed the lands of traitors in times of war or other times when popular opinion was still strong enough to give his words weight.
  • Palaces were crazy impractical until the invention of gunpowder (and also until the kings had a large enough treasury to build something like Versailles, which was after/during the Renaissance). 
  • Thank you for mentioning kings were patrons of the arts because they were. If they weren’t, other members of his household like his wife or children would be. Music and books were the main sources of entertainment if you could afford it. Extremely wealthy nobles like the king certainly could. And thank you for mentioning charity. There was a specific office called the almoner whose entire job was to manage charity for the poor. 
  • Yooooo no one traveled on a warhorse. Palfreys for the win! Maybe kings would switch to a destrier for the shock and awe when he entered a city, but smooth-gaited palfreys were the way to move around.
  • Finally, ay dios mio, don’t watch Braveheart as indicative of medieval society.

Listen to most of what this post says and ye shall prosper.
