How could he fall so low? - Words in the Heroes' Tongue
I have a variable-sword. I urge calm.
How could he fall so low?
In the mornings, when I’m working at night, I usually put the TV on to either some fascinating documentary about dinosaurs (or Isambard Kingdom Brunel) or else to some mindless movie until I go to bed at lunchtime. Today the mindless movie in question was GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra. A truly dreadful movie (although possibly marginally better than Sharktopus. Or not.).

The villain is played by Christopher Eccleston and I couldn’t help thinking “Huh? You gave up being Doctor Who for this?”

I had exactly the same thought!

He did look kind of pretty in "The Dark is Rising" though...

It makes you wonder, doesn't it?

Oh man, there was this article I read about a month back about the making of Goodfellas, and apparently John Malkovitch turned down Ray Liotta's role; when they interviewed him for the article, he was like "yeah, it's hard to explain why you end up making movies like Eragon instead of Goodfellas sometimes."

Isn't that the saddest thing ever??

I was watching The Happiness Salesman online today and he seriously creeped me out in that one.

I adore Chris Eccleston and I still don't get (five years later) why he quit Doctor Who.

What I found amusing is the fact that Eccleston played Destro and Joseph Gordon-Levitt played Cobra Commander, or, as he was otherwise known, the Doctor.

Still refuse to see the movie but it's wonderful that with the internet I don't have too.

Hello, question regarding your BtVS fanfics

Hi, I hope I'm doing this right, I never used this lifejournal thing. I was wondering if maybe you could write a quick few pages on how you were going to end the Tabula Avatar Buffy/BG2 story. I was really excited, and read the whole thing (yes, all 3 books) in a single day, went to bed at like 6am ;)

But it's terrible to not know how it ends, and I see you have not updated in so long, so you probably aren';t working on it anymore and aren't going back to it :(((

So that sucks, because I loved the story :( and I really would like to know how you were going to end it. So if you maybe could just write a rough draft of your plans, like "The Sunnydale crew was going to beat Bhodi this and this way, and the computer game version find out this and that and in the end they do this", that would be awesome.

I plead to you, as an avid fan you know how much it sucks when a show gets canceled before its resolved, don't let us hanging and give us some closure. Pretty please? With a cherry on top?

I don't know how to leave my email here without it being shown in public which I don't want so I will check your LJ posts for a while, I hope you reply. Thanks for all the awesome writing you did!

Re: Hello, question regarding your BtVS fanfics

No need; I'm busy with the next chapter right now, I'm about half-way through it and making good progress, and it will be going up within the next day or two.

Re: Hello, question regarding your BtVS fanfics

That is awesome, thank you so very much! And here I had given up all hope for more chapters :)

Re: Hello, question regarding your BtVS fanfics

I haven't made as good progress as I'd hoped. I didn't get it finished last night and I return to work tonight. Another day or two yet, I'm afraid.
