Let me sum up.

1. I've been doing a lot of paperwriting (in the course of which I've read some brilliant essays in Transforming a Rape Culture, which is basically an assortment of awesome feminist stuff, but more on that soon), so I haven't been able to read much this past month. I read Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones which was sweet and funny and also kind of heartbreaking, and then I read The Castle of Otranto which was oh so ridiculous. These gothic novels, they have potential, they really do, but all this being in love forever after only having known each other for two minutes? Nah. Cranky banter's much better than endless chitchat about how you will never leave each other yadda yadda yadda, So, in conclusion, Howl's Moving Castle = much better than The Castle of Otranto.

2. I went to France! For about... two days? We had a horrible ride there with lots and lots of traffic jams and not enough coffee, but we had sushi when we arrived, and we went to see Sweeney Todd the next day which was all kinds of awesome. It was soooo good, and the cast was amazing. Downright amazing. Only the guy playing Anthony was a bit old-ish for the role, but apart from that, it was all perfect. <333

3. I have finally seen The Social Network! And I thought it was a pretty boring film which was mostly due to there not happening a lot of things, or at least not a lot of things I understand, but I fell in love with Erica and the Winklevoss twins, and then I was all, "MARK AND WARDO, WHY ARE YOU SUING EACH OTHER INSTEAD OF INDULGING IN SEXYTIMES?", and then laliandra pointed me to the fix-it fic, AND I STILL HAVEN'T GOT ROUND TO READING IT YET. Which, uh, moving on, is probably due to #4.

4. Almost done (re)watching season 1 of The Mentalist! It's my favourite tv show right now, and I think that I was huge amounts of too innocent when I first watched it because I missed all the slashy subtext, and also, upon rewatching, I have found my first OT3. Oh, the goodness that is Cho/Rigsby/Van Pelt. ALSO. I totally want an Inception/Mentalist AU where Cobb is Lisbon and Van Pelt is Ariadne and Minelli is Saito. And then Cho would be Arthur and Rigsby would be Eames, only that leaves Jane with Yusuf. IDK. BUT I WANT THIS. SERIOUSLY, THIS IS TOO GOOD TO JUST LET IT GO. Aaaanyway. THIS IS OWAIN YEOMAN. HE'S MY FAVOURITE AT THE MO. And he has this lovely Welsh accent he has to drop for the show, and it makes me sadface all the time. :(((

Owain Yeoman

I NEED THIS AU THINGY.

I totally will! It's weird for me, being in multiple fandoms at once, but I think I like it. :)

Not at all! :D I don't think anything involving Howl's Moving Castle could ever be bad.

Oh, gothic novels. Is Otranto the one with the giant helmet, or am I thinking of something else?

It is! :) (Hi btw! Sorry for being so sneaky about friending you.)

All the gold stars in the world for recalling more of Otranto than the fact that it is utterly ridiculous!
