Seriously guys, thank you so much for following my blog! It means everything to me. But most of all, i love to see soooo many people that love Heath as much as i do. He was truly such an amazing person. And a huge inspiration to me and so many others.
“It only…it takes a lot of courage to even pronounce words like that in the presence of my father. But even he had to agree that you made an exceptional figure on that battlefield, even better than some of the actual warriors.”
“Oh, but I do fight battles of my own, Milady. Battles with sharpened quills and empty pergament pages, battles of wit and battles of wisdom. I am a writer, and my weapons may not be as impressive on the eye as those on the battlefield, but I can assure you, they weigh just as heavily.”
Medieval/Fantastical AU (inspired by the movie A Knight’s Tale) in which Wanda is the daughter of the Sokovian feudal lord and Vizh a herald and writer who announces his troup at a tournament Erik Lehnsherr holds
There is a whole fic belonging to this, but my imagination went overboard and it got so long I didn’t finish in time. The edits are actually the bonus and give a slight idea of what’s happening in the story. I hope you like it!
I’m half an hour into The Reckoning again while I wait for The Fic That’s Going To Ruin Me to be completed and wait for my body to wind down from the absolute hell that was today and the cider to properly kick in, and it’s been a few years and I had forgotten:
Paul Bettany’s faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace
Gina McKee’s faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace
Paul Bettany and Gina McKee, NOW KISS
this whole cast honestly, it’s a white dude fest because of course but what a selection of white dudes
all that wool!!!!1! I want to make hats like those! and look ridiculous when I wear them in public but still be like “ha ha motherfuckers, I’m warm as shit!”
the plot and the whole experience stands up really well despite apparently being filmed on VHS
stories involving non-noble, non-knight characters in the Middle Ages are cool as fuck in general and this one is pretty solid
it’s still super hard for me to not just quote A Knight’s Tale while I watch this
And then there are the things I had not forgotten because I didn’t realize then:
Tom Hardy’s faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace
Tom Hardy’s faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace putting on fucking stage makeup I shit you not, if you need a reason to watch this movie, THERE IT IS
the Fury Road fusion I want to write, oh my God
the Pacific Rim fusion I want to write, OH MY GOD
(actually back when confab and bloglikejaeger were spitballing a high fantasy AU ages ago I threw in something about Hermann and Vanessa and a mummers’ troupe and I’m pretty sure this movie was a direct influence but I digress)
DID I FUCKING MENTION TOM HARDY PUTTING RED PAINT ON HIS LIPS AND THEN PURSING THEM TO SPREAD THE COLOR
If only there were a touch more references to actual knights and/or the writings surrounding King Arthur. It’s a deft comedy that could have been a brilliant satire of medieval literature with a little more bravado.
