People make Pocahontas/John Rolfe vids. EEEEE!



(Yes, sadly, this is set to Celine Dion but we can't have everything).

Why, yes, I am on a Christian Bale kick, how did you know? I have to obsess over something now that most of my dramas have been postponed...

I've been reading about Big's ending and LOL. LOL. I am so glad I dumped this at ep 8 (and only sorry I held on s long as I did). The ragey comments at dramabeans are super-entertaining.

I've loved my share of bad dramas but this wasn't even 'bad but entertaining in its badness' (a la Dr Jin) or 'bad but hitting my shippy kinks and caring' a la Myung Wol. I adored the latter and was very entertained by the former but Big was just one big, slogging, dull mess. Still, I expected a better ending than that. Oh, Hong Sisters! I used to love you so...

Recent scouring of amazon for period novels brought forth the following:

1. I cannot resist any book involving Rupert of the Rhine. I blame reading Margaret Irwin's The Stranger Prince during my formative years. I mean, normally I at least read the reviews first before buying a book, but throw in "Rupert, civil war, battles, and some romance" and I click "purchase" like a Pavlovian dog.

2. There is apparently a whole sub genre of novels about ladies who married Elizabeth I's boyfriends. Ummm...

3. It is impossible to find a good pirate novel that doesn't involve heaving bosoms and coy references to fleshly swords. I love romance novels but seriously - just one (in print, available on Kindle) pirate novel that doesn't fall into that genre, please! I can find few scenarios less appealing that being stuck, seasick, with a man who likely has both a death warrant and pubic lice.

4. I am still obsessed with reading books on Richard III but remain confused by the "did he off the princes in the tower" fixation books about him have (good or bad) - umm, he could have, who cares? Medieval (and after) kings were all a nasty lot and did a lot worse to stay in power - look at Henry VIII wholesale rooting out of anyone with any claim to the crown or the whole Richard II/Henry IV thing.

I literally have to control a desire to scream and impulse to run around. My heart is beating ten miles a minute. I just watched the ending of ep 17 of Gaksital (though I haven't watched the ep itself yet) and omg omg omg omg omg I honestly cannot calm down. How can I wait a week?

Just finished ep 17 of Bridal Mask with subs and how does this drama get more and more prefect, how?

Proper post and caps to come, but for now I leave you with the amazing ending to the amazing ep.



I am in heaven.

Is it too much to ask for some delicious and shippy h/c?
