Carter/Allison....mehhh. There's just been too much back and forth and really I just don't care. In general I don't have strong feelings about the overall ships on the show, although occasionally in a particular episode I will. Other than Henry/Kim which...well...things I can't say b/c spoilers
UGH THIS SHOW. I'm actually 4 episodes behind now because I just can't bring myself to watch it anymore. But it has Anne of Green Gables in it! And whatsisname from Endgame! But literally every episode it's been "Oh I declare my love FOR REAL now we're together" and by the end of the episode it's "OH JK". I hate that in my shows. Especially when the relationship ends up being the point of the show. It doesn't help that it's "historical" (oh so loosely done), so it's not like we don't KNOW who she ends up with.
North and South
Ok so I'm almost halfway through my bottle of wine and I'm on the last episode as I type this. WHY HAVEN'T I WATCHED THIS BEFORE?!? I ship Mr. Thornton and Margaret with the power of a thousand fiery suns. I mean...the way Richard Armitage looks at her! I've never seen so much passion! I need him in my life. I need him to look at me like that. I seriously have him on par with Darcy (probably because the relationship is quite similar now that I think about it. I definitely have a relationship type). How did I not know Richard Armitage existed before last year?? He's such a fantastic actor! And also Mr. Thornton. Who I love. I LOVE THIS CHARACTER. This is good seeing as I have no romance in my life. (My boyfriend accidentally mailed chocolate to himself instead of me. And proceeded to eat it all. Hahahaha! Also I haven't seen him since early December. I need the feels I get vicariously through characters!)
Daughter of the Forest
I just reread this book, and although I didn't quite fall in love with this book as much as I did the first time around, but there is something to be said for the romance here. After all, how often do you get a man who waits three years to hear the woman he loves speak?
Son of the Shadows
This is by far my favourite book in the trilogy (well the series, but the trilogy is stronger as a whole), for so many reasons, but I won't get into it. I have to admit, I do have a weakness for the strong, silent, misunderstood type and Bran fits that perfectly (and Wash doesn't but you know what? I am using this gif anyway. I am a REBEL.)
Ok we're not even going to talk about the 2007 version of this (WTF??) or the way that Fanny's uncle is SUPER skeevy in the 199...some number version and the weird slave bit (but we are going to talk about that version). Ok, TECHNICALLY I've never finished the book...I've got a few chapters of the book left to read. But I've just don't love Edmund! I mean, yeah he's nice, and Fanny's not one of my favourite heroines either, but Henry has all the making of being a total swoonworthy guy! (Until he's not). It doesn't help that in the movie version he's got way more chemistry with Fanny, and that I find him sympathetic, although as I recall in the book I didn't feel quite the same. In general, I sympathize with him, and I actually think Maria would make a great heroine, and while Mary may have stepped over the line a bit, I also think she was being sensible. But there you are, this is why Mansfield Park isn't my favourite Austen novel. And why Henry should have gotten the girl.
I'm lukewarm. I mean, I know the romance is integral to the story, but the book is so much more than that. I'm more interested in her transformation as a person, and her relationship with Hana (I adore them!!!) It's not that I don't like Alex, or that I don't like Alex with Lena, it just didn't make me weak-kneed. I won't say anymore, because I'm going to review this (probably...), but don't mistake my lukewarm swoons for lukewarm feelings on this book - it was definitely a great read!
Milo and Otis is on Hulu!!! Just in case you needed to know. I'm going to pretend I never read that Cracked.com article about this film and just continue to enjoy it whenever I choose to watch it next. (Did you know my boyfriend hyperventilates at the thought of pugs because he loves them so much? It's like Kristen Bell's reaction to sloths. We only got 10 minutes into this film haha). Umm not that I am including this on my list of ships. That would be weird. If it weren't for Martin and Rose I'd say ewww animal ships! But Redwall ...ok I'm getting distracted
Law & Order SVU
I'm a couple episodes behind, so things may have happened (not that I think I'll change my mind) but NO. Olivia and Cassidy? No, no, no, NO. I do not like.
Ok, so I haven't seen the newest episode, but I hear there's tons of Captain Swan! Captain Swan is by far my favourite couple of the past season (well until I met Mr. Thornton). I'm feeling lucky where it comes to this couple! And it's not just because Hook's so very nice to look at, there's a ton more chemistry there than with Neal. Also Neal abandoned her so *shrugs* Captain swan forever!
Did you know that Richard Armitage can play cello, flute, and guitar? Also he joined a circus in Budapest. Most importantly he's single. Umm..marry me? (Shhh don't tell my boyfriend!)
