Sorry for the accidental hiatus.
My little brother graduated high school and my grandparents came to visit! I started a summer job! And I’m taking a spring semester class on Shakespeare that makes me weep, because the prof is ridiculous! Portal! The Pillars of the Earth!
…mostly it’s been a newfound obsession with Community, though. Basically, my dears, I am a busy bee and real life gets in the way of tumblr something horrid. So. SUBMIT.
Sir William Lucas? You around?
Super-dorkish or not, I’m totally staying up tonight to watch. For the dress. And to bid adieu to my girlhood dreams of marrying Wills. I ain’t even that old, but goddamn he looks like Charles now and I can’t abide by such things.

i enjoy this muchly, thank you for submitting! (and sorry for all the lower-case nonsense, guys, i still can’t type. it’s interfering with portal. and summer. but mostly portal.)
Sorry about the broken wrist, Lovely! I hope your gentleman friend is pleased to take care of you. Which wrist did you break?
awh, thank you! it’s my left wrist, which is just unfortunate because i’m left-handed and i’m supposed to write my last english final tomorrow, hah. and yes, everyone’s been perfectly lovely, including him.
so this happened today. i’ll be wearing a cast/not typing properly for a month. my gentleman friend is all bingley-ish right now, though, and I am rather amused.
I’m non-religious and celebrate Easter as Mini Egg Day, but for those of you who do…I hope it wasn’t like this.
I played the first Portal for the first time today and actually liked it. Enough to be downloading it right now, even!
…couldn’t help thinking this, though.
I adore the 2005 version, it captures the humour that the 1995 mini-series didn't really get. I saw the 2005 first, and generally it seems that the version people have seen first, they like better. I suppose it's because we connect with how the actors pay their roles and when somebody else does it, we think 'no, they aren't doing it right'. The cinematography in the 2005 was so breathtaking and the amazing music also made the film so much more intense which is what a film really should do. I still love the 1995 version, but I'm with you in preferring the 2005 film :)
(yeah I hope that all made sense haha)
You know, I saw the 2005 one first too, and I think you’re right in saying that has something to do with it. Thanks!
My roommate and I have the same issue. She likes the 2005 version and I like the 1995 version (at this point, we just agree to disagree). I like them both, they're both good movies, but I'll always love the 1995 version more.
For me, I think the overall quality of acting is better (Judi Dench aside, she's freaking amazing as always). Colin Firth will always be the best Darcy in the world in my opinion, so is Jennifer Ehle. Matthew Macfadyen and Keira Knightely have their moments but it just didn't cut it for me.
Legit. Part of my issue is one that someone else had, which is that Ehle looks too old. IDK.
Also, it should surprise exactly none of you that I can quote along exactly to the 2005 version. Also unsurprisingly, no one wants to watch it with me anymore.
