I was hoping to catch up before my birthday in *squints* forty minutes (though I guess I can give myself until 8:10, haha), which seems fairly unlikely. But, more!

oh right, the Austen meme

Over at Tumblr, I've sort of-kind of been keeping up with it, on-again off-again, since I finished school. So!

tumblr just made me happy

This is a thing that just happened!

Anonymous asked: Oh my gosh, yes. Why do filmmakers think that Darcy never smiled? He thinks Elizabeth's hilarious, and laughs with her (while she thinks he's laughing at her). WHY DOES NO ONE UNDERSTAND DARCY?

Bless you, anon. He smiles more than anyone except Elizabeth. He’s even smiling in his portrait, and Elizabeth is like ‘oh, just like he used to smile around me, aww.’

The one that particularly gets me is the whole conversation about their faults, where Elizabeth tells him his biggest fault is hating everyone, and he replies that hers is misunderstanding everyone. It’s almost always played as ~angry sexual tension~ - but in the book, he’s smiling as he says it. He likes arguing and he likes her and he’s having a great time; Elizabeth is the one who’s angry and convinced that he’s mocking her, when he’s really ‘haha zing!’

Ugh, Darcy really might be one of the most misunderstood characters ever.


So, I needed a link to "Season of Courtship" for vastly important reasons (aka a Tumblr meme), was too lazy to track it down and googled it instead, which of course brought up:

Apparently, our new geek overlord was about as pleased about Michael Arndt and Lawrence Kasdan as everyone else:

Abrams "was flipping out when he found out that Michael and Larry were on the movie already," says Kennedy.

Well, that's encouraging.

Upgoer 5!

This kept popping up on my f-list, so: some personality theory in the 1000 most common words in the English language. (Not counting theorist's names, which may be cheating, but whatever.)

There was some Episode VII poll awhile back, and I voted for J. J. Abrams (entirely on the strength of Star Trek, to be honest, which felt a lot more like SW than ST). I didn't actually think it would happen, but ... it has!

For the link-averse, Lawrence Kasdan of ESB and Simon Kinberg as consultants (yesssss), Kathleen Kennedy is executive producer (duh), and George Lucas is creative consultant (cool). Okay, this is pretty much my personal wish list turned into reality. I really hope it's awesome.

now I'm having Belgariad plotbunnies

I guess it was inevitable.

Jan. 7th, 2013

Well, I've finally officially graduated from college, applied to grad school, and moved out of my apartment, which has taken up most of my attention over the last few months, with Christmas (which was terrible). I hope that I'll have a little time for something beyond tumblr (fun, now that I have Missing E and Tumblr Savior, but I think I've had actual conversations with like three people). I did carve out the time for Yuletide, though, so - belated reveal?
