My new obsession
I was always obsessed with period dramas in general, but never have I loved any as much as the BBC mini-series of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South. The book was wonderful, and the adaptation was one of those rare ones which is just as good as the book. North and South is about a young woman from tranquil southern England who moves to live in the north at the height of the Industrial Revolution. The book is basically about the relationship between the working class and the masters of the factories, and explores this point through a love story between the southern woman and a northern mill owner whose opinions constantly clash.
It's an amazing book, and the mini-series is amazing too. Richard Armitage (who I'd never heard of before this) is Mr Thornton, and he gives a brilliant performance (it helps that he is extremely hot and probably a major reason behind my humungous fictional character crush on Mr Thornton) - I am now an official member of the Armitage Army of RAbid fangirls. I must also mention that Daniela Denby-Ashe, who plays Margaret, was also fantastic, and although she seems to be overlooked a lot as everyone praises RA, without her wonderful performance as Margaret Hale, RA's Mr Thornton might not have made such an impact. Also, I must mention what is now called 'The Train Station Scene' in my mind - most romantic thing ever; and I love that the film doesn't just end abruptly and sort of brings you down gently from that emotional high, so that you're left feeling completely satisfied.
It is a crime not to have seen and read this. Please check it out and do PM me if you are a fan - can't talk about it enough!
On the Topic of Reviews
I really like getting reviews, seriously. I understand that some of the people who read my stories might not have time to review, or are too lazy to review, or think I have too many reviews (no such thing, people - please keep contributing!), and so for whatever reason, they do not review. I won't be too hurt even if it's a negative review - yes, sometimes it's kinder to say nothing, but it means a lot to know that someone took the time to critique my writing. I get a tiny bit annoyed when someone favourites my story but doesn't review - but it's cool, I get that people can't always review and I do appreciate the gesture. And now I'm being a huge hypocrite, because I've been guilty of all the above things, especially in the being too lazy to review department. So from now on I resolve to review everything I read, unless it has an absolutely montrous amount of reviews and I have nothing new to say about it, in the hope that people will return the favour (and that I can expect the favour to be returned without being a hypocrite).
