Well, hello, yes, this blog is still active. Let’s just say there was a pile of paid work that I had to work through first.
In the meantime, I had time to watch all the DVDs I got for Christmas (and the many things that were on my Netflix list), so I now have lots of material for reviews. An no, I haven’t forgotten about Eliot the cat, he’s on my list of “stuff that needs to be finished”. Also, NaPoWriMo is around the corner, so this blog might get a bit busier in the coming weeks. Or not, looking at my work schedule…
So without further ado, here’s the SPOILER-filled review of the final season of Downton Abbey including a lot of speculation about what might happen to the characters afterwards (warning: not too optimistic).
Hi there! Did you miss me? You’d think I’d miss posting every day, but in fact I got used to it pretty (too?) quickly.
Anyway, as promised here is another WordPlay, which is also a piece of fan fiction. So yeah, you can blame Nika Harper for re-igniting my passion for writing fan fics… Her prompts were “inner demons” and “a failed delivery”. First posted on the Geek & Sundry forums, made a few adjustments for this blog version.
Oh yeah, and this is actually a crossover fic: Thomas from Downton Abbey meets Captain Jack Harkness. Because I couldn’t decide which series I should pick 😉 Set between series three and four of Downton Abbey, so beware of SPOILERS. (no particular spoilers for Torchwood or Doctor Who)
Yes! It’s finally here! And why did it take me so long? … Well, I guess I had to rewatch it first to get to a (non permanent) final opinion. And you guessed it, the following review (?) contains MASSIVE SPOILERS (including the 2013 Christmas Special). Proceed at your own risk. Also, you know I love Thomas…
I will post my review of Downton Season 4 in a while, but until then I thought I’d write some fan fiction about Thomas. SEASON 3 SPOILER WARNING (well, a minor one). I got “The Chronicles of Downton Abbey” for Christmas, a fabulous book with lots of photos and even more background information. In it, I came across the hymns that were sung at Lady Mary’s wedding – the first being “O perfect love”. It made me wonder how Thomas would feel about those words. Enjoy! (By the way, I haven’t watched the 2013 Christmas special yet, so any deviation from the canon is entirely my fault).
