↳ romulus and remus of alba longa

Twin sons of Mars and Rhea Silvia, they were nursed by a she-wolf as infants and raised by a simple shepherd and his wife. Once they reached adulthood, they helped overthrow the false king of Alba Longa. Rather than press their own claim to the throne, however, they decided to restore the rightful king, and found a new city of their own. A disagreement arose, concerning the location of this new city; the brothers fought and Remus was killed. Romulus founded Rome and brought it glory, but as the years passed he became increasingly autocratic, and in the end either disappeared, ascended to the heavens to become a god in his own right, or was killed by the Senate, depending on the particular version of the myth.

"Sir, are you familiar with the story of Icarus? He didn’t know when to quit. He flew too close to the sun, and his wax wings melted, and he died."

Well, I cry whenever I watch an emotional scene that I did, just because it brings me back to that moment. It’s like I remember being there, I remember feeling what I felt.

Okay, first of all, I-I don’t sound like that! Who-what is this character? And-and second, what is that thing you’re doing with my shoulders? Yeah, that’s a truly flattering impersonation.
