Didn't know about the new Toy Story That Time Forgot special until my brother alerted me to it five minutes before it came on TV. So hilarious!! Reptillus Maximus and Kitty were my favorites -- he was a little Shakespeare. And I am totally on board with the Maximus/Trixie ship!

Did anyone else catch it?

Esther Summerson and Allan Woodcourt was the first couple of Charles Dickens' I shipped, and I've often felt they are under-appreciated. So I was extremely delighted to stumble over three fanfics dedicated to them recently! Here they are for any fellow shippers or fans of Bleak House who may be interested. :)

Survivors by Laura Schiller
Another Bouquet by Laura Schiller
Penelope's Song by Laura Schiller

Have rediscovered/increased my fondness for POTO, particularly for Raoul and Raoul/Christine after stumbling over parts of the 25th Anniversary performance. Have rewatched "Wandering Child" and "Twisted Every Way" over and over and over. Why didn't the 2004 movie follow these scenes more closely? Hadley Fraser's Raoul is incredible, completely fighting for the woman he loves. Great chemistry between him and Sierra Boggess (Christine). I need to get my hands on the DVD to see the whole show.

Now I'm hunting for Raoul/Christine fanfiction and icons of the POTO 25th Anniversary!

High School Musical (oddly enough)

The Cosby Show
Air Crash Investigation/Mayday

Marriage of Figaro (Mozart)
"Amoroso" from Cinderella (Prokofiev)
Cool (West Side Story)
Dancing in the Dark (Band Wagon)

The Glass Riddle (Fairy tales + Agatha Christie = Cinderella mystery)
Bess Marvin's Guide to Not Dating Criminals (Detectives and their fatal romances)
The Two Sisters (Jadis in the beginning)


rosa_cotton: (Prince & Snow)
Snow White has suddenly exploded in popularity and I think I'm digging it -- it being one of my favorite fairy tales.

*Once Upon a Time -- I'm becoming a huge fan of this show. The storytelling has been very good. And there has been Snow White and Prince James... They are so adorable and have such a great chemistry. *la sigh*

*Mirror, Mirror -- Another different, and humorous take on the story. This actually looks interesting.

*Snow White and the Huntsman -- Definitely going for the dark and Grimm angle. Sitting on the fence with this one at the moment. I don't like horror and some of the moments in the trailer strike me as that. Wish there was more of Snow White; Kristen seemed more like an ordinary princess instead of the "fairest in the land."

Yay for fairy tales!!

Saw Tootsie starring Dustin Hoffman yesterday. Very funny movie. I would've liked it more if it didn't have so much language. Hoffman was brilliant.

I'm super excited because I found a Frank Hardy/Nancy Drew video from the 1970s TV show. Frank doesn't look anything like I envisioned from the books, but he's cute nonetheless. grihgoufuytrtrjhgjrer47546lkjklnbfjght04u4grfgkjh!!!!! THEY KISS!!!!!!!!! Frank/Nancy is canon!!!!!!!! YES!!

Happy Valentine's Day!
