Brief notes from a weekend that wasn't nearly long enough

Um. Gosford Park == good. I need to watch it again, possibly while taking notes, because I think I am fascinated by that screenplay.

Wednesday's post will be the first third of the new story, which is still tragically untitled. Not even a working title worth considering. At the rate I'm going, I'll be lucky have even that done. Seriously blocked, all weekend.

But stop reading this. You should be off reading new fic. theblackmare has posted the first part of her new story, which follows on from "Blood Oranges". Kipling, mythological creatures, the Initiative, the Slayer coming into her power, and a whole lot of Giles.

The Dance of Water and Stone: part 1 / part 2 - genfic, FRT

Don't listen to all that nonsense about me helping. All I did was some html stuff. It's all her.

And then please note that wickedfox has worked her usual magic.
Glee! Did not expect a continuation of that perfect moment, just saw the pic on pg.1, am giddy & must go, reading.
Oh, I love Gosford Park! Seriously, that structured world, and the differences between upstairs and downstairs, and how only the servants have a clue what's going on.
The similarities and differences, the vacuous privilege of the upstairs people, the little speech about some men being lucky...
Can't believe it took me this long to watch it. Must re-watch about five times! What a fabulous cast!
Man, I totally <3 Gosford Park. Might need to watch it tonight, in fact. After I read the fic. :)
I watched Gosford Park twice, mainly to catch the dialog. My husband referred to it as Godawful Park. Wasn't The Dance of Water and Stone awesome? I love her work.
