Taking advantage of being sick to catch up on movies we've watched recently. I keep thinking there should be at least one more, but these are the ones I can remember. Read more... )

The fourth and, as of this writing, the last of Roberta Rogow's Charles Dodgson-Arthur Conan Doyle mysteries. I hope she writes more! I didn't love this one quite as much as the others, even though it was set at Oxford and involved Dodgson's photography as an important plot element. I'm not sure why, but some of it had that "must squeeze in all the research" flavor and wound up coming across as forced. It still had enough delightful bits to keep me going through it, and one of the very best opening lines I've seen in a mystery novel in a very long time:

Murder was not a part of the curriculum at any of the individual colleges that made up the University of Oxford.

A while back I bought some mysteries by Roberta Rogow at MediaWest*Con, and I've finally gotten around to reading them. Fun for fans of Holmes and fans of Alice! )

There were some parts of this movie that I liked extremely well, and others that I didn't - overall, I would still say that I enjoyed it quite a lot despite the flaws. Some curious feminist issues going on. (SPOILER ALERT)here be spoilers )

I was lucky enough to win an auction on [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti, where [livejournal.com profile] naturalbluicons had offered five icons of the winner's choice.

I know blu likes working with Disney images, and as much as I love Alice in Wonderland in all its myriad forms, I didn't have any icons from the Disney version of Alice.

Now I have FIVE!!!!!!! click to see! )

I've responded to three prompts on [livejournal.com profile] demilos_wagon so far. It's a great way to get writing, if anyone wants to join in! (hint, hint)

Here are the ficlets I've written (all gen):

[livejournal.com profile] diabolicalfiend asked for "Zero and Lonot, preferably with Zero respectfully insulting Lonot."
152 words )

[livejournal.com profile] kseda asked for "That one time the Mystic Man's pet tin man and the queen's adviser got drunk and whined about working for crazy people."
654 words )

[livejournal.com profile] moony_blues asked for "a TM/Alice crossover."
424 words )

Comparisons may be odious, but they are also irresistible. Brief thoughts on the fanfic potential of the two series. spoilers ahoy! )

There have been other shoutouts too - my fave so far was the get it-got it-good between Ratty and Hatter. Court Jester FTW!

This was fun! I collect weird editions of Alice in Wonderland - usually parodies or rewrites or pastiches - and this is a very enjoyable re-envisioning! A light, quick read, that will probably reward rereading. I aim to check out the sequels.

Possibly spoilery comments )

Icon P.S.

[livejournal.com profile] gblvr made this for me when I first got onto LJ. You can probably guess my major fandom at the time.

The movie meme, plus recent discussions with some of my Tin Man peeps reminded me of one of my favorite movies EVAR and I just had to make an icon. Actually, four.
