The BBC's Les Mis is failing at many turns, especially with regards to Valjean. (Who is the main character and all so you should really TRY to get him right.) But they actually do seem to be doing Grantaire justice, so I suppose I can forgive it some.

I do not like this new Les Mis, I rate it zero out of two possible candlesticks

I know this journal is private now but oh man I gotta share with SOMEONE the fear I have of the new Les Mis adaptation. It's so nearly here and I have the they're-going-to-ruin-my-favourite-book terrors. Why is Eponine in none of the promo material?! And will they give adequate time to the beautiful, wonderful Enjolras/Grantaire subplot? :(

Heh, who would have ever thought I'd get to use this icon again?

If you've been around my fanfiction for long enough, you might remember Faith In Humanity, my 30-odd chapter ode to the Spider-Man verse and the original trilogy in particular. Among the main characters was Emily, Harry's late mother. Back then (this was the '00s) she didn't have a surname or much characterisation at all really. She was essentially the founding member of my Dead Fictional Mothers Club. I was fascinated by how heroes and protagonists never had mothers. Why were they always the ones to die?
So imagine how gleeful I was to realise that in the comics she is now not dead! It happened ages ago, but I only heard about it now. It's funny, she looks exactly how I imagined her.
( Read more...Collapse )
I'll always love Harry and the Osborn story. This new (uh, new-ish) development is so pleasing to me, you have no idea. (Emily also features quite a lot in the new Spider-Man game, which is also very pleasing to me, although she's definitely dead in that one.)
Anyway! I put Faith in Humanity up on AO3 today.

Maybe LiveJournal is less dead than I thought. Maybe I should come back here.
