Sparklefandom had a fic exchange! It was very exciting. I wrote a fic AND I got given TWO fics, both of which were GREAT.

Nowwww I just have to find the time to read all the other fics in the collection, of which there's an impressive number for such a small fandom. But I have a busy weekend ahead of me. But I want to read the fics! Sigh.

So I figured being home sick was the right time to watch Párizsi élet. And - welp, now I've seen it. And my levels of bafflement are SO HIGH RIGHT NOW. SO MUCH BAFFLEMENT.

Like, I can manage to figure out that there are a lot of sex jokes? and also that the characters are pretty drunk for at least a couple of the major scenes? But other than that I am just a lot of ????

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS when you watch a show when you don't know the language and don't have subs and don't even know the plot. So. Um. I really liked the scenes Bobinet and Gardefeu were in together! They were super adorable dorks around each other. But that was a relatively small percentage of the running time, and I couldn't tell ANY OF THE OTHER CHARACTERS APART FROM EACH OTHER. (well, except Alphonse)

So! I am willing to bet that if you have even a little bit more of a clue than me then this is a great show, but as it is.... I think I'll just go reread the one extant fic for this production, which is charming and adorable and great and comprehensible

I don't know how this never occurred to me before, but I really need a crossover between Highlander and Elisabeth. Specifically, one on the topic of Hungarian Sparkledeath creeping on one's faves, because you know who he really needs to creep on? METHOS. That or mutual creeping-on between Sparkledeath and Methos.

Seriously, dude has an interesting relationship with death. What with being an Immortal, and so he's probably died rather a lot over the last 5000 years; and what with the whole Horsemen thing in his past; and what with his thing about having a sword at his neck; and also his thing about willingly putting himself into danger for the sake of his friends while protesting his enlightened self-interest.... YEAH.

Now I wish there was fanfic or fanart of this. *sighs longingly*

My internet’s been down all evening (IT’S FINALLY BACK THANK YOU) so I spent my time watching the Hungarian Elisabeth with subtitles - which is something I’ve been intending to do for ages. And um I had thoughts and things to say and stuff? But then the credits informed me that BERECZKI ZOLTAN PLAYS FRANZ JOSEPH APPARENTLY???? and I am too busy being astonished at this fact to have anything more coherent to say at the moment.

(probably I shouldn’t be astonished. I am bad at faces, and facial hair makes it even more challenging. But - I guess I am too used to seeing Zoli as Mercutio, and Franz Joseph is so different from Mercutio that I have trouble seeing them being played by the same actor!)

Dear DW,

I feel the need to inform you that I wrote a thing. Like ~250 words of space verona boybands in extremely implausible gyms, all the fault of #sparklechat.

I can't NOT tell you because this is, technically speaking, my main blog. So. Here it is. Just for you.

Love,

Sophia

Mara asked me last night whether I like Elisabeth or Romeo es Julia better, and I was momentarily stymied. I hadn't actually thought about it like that before! I've just been busily fanning over both!

It turns out to be something of a complicated question for me. Because first of all, my ideal production of Elisabeth doesn't exist, whereas my ideal production of Romeo es Julia pretty much does. And second of all, they're actually really different from each other? I like them in different ways!

cut for people who don't care. No actual spoilers, I think. )
