Lately, I’ve become addicted to the Youtube series Nothing Much to Do, an adaptation of Much Ado about Nothing. This is not super surprising as Much Ado’s been special to me for years, to the point that I ended up doing my Master’s thesis on it two years ago.
Since my thesis had a huge…

i love this moment because when the butler walks in darcy’s all oh it’s just the butler announcing we’ve run out of the good butter and returns to his paper i like to think it’s the regency era equivalent of the financial review or the wall street journal but as soon as he hears miss elizabeth.. his head jerks up and BOOM we know he’s got it bad. and caroline. poor caroline. i constantly dismiss caroline as a horrible jealous snob but really, i feel for her in this scene because she’s just like WHAT IS HAPPENING NUUUUUUUUUUU darcy what are you doing loving on this peasant girl look at moi darciiiii look at moi but no darcy’s lost in elizabeth’s fine eyes and she ain’t even in the room yet

Chuck+Sarah vs the Youtube Playlist
I was tagged by the lovely zataraszatanna!
Always post the rules.
Answer the questions the person who tagged you asked, then write 6 new ones. Tag 6 people and link them to the post. (Tell them you tagged them.)
1. what are three movies you wish everyone should see?
Penelope, Julie & Julia, and Pacific Rim. I don’t know why; it’s just that they’re all movies that make me happy whenever I watch them and I think everyone could use that.
2. favorite kind of dessert?
Pie. Always pie. Or most anything chocolate, so long as it doesn’t contain citrus.
3. quick, your favorite fic writer/artist tells you that they want to do one of your ideas for a ship of yours, what is it?
At this point, it’s probably the LBD spy AU that I started last year and have been promising to finish ever since. I would literally just throw all my notes at the person and be like, “Here. Succeed where I have failed.”
4. what are five songs that describe you?
Touch the Sky - Julie Fowlis
The Call - Regina Spektor
Down in the Valley - The Head and the Heart
Sweet As Whole - Sara Bareilles
The Show Goes On - Lupe Fiasco
5. you become famous and die. what’s your biopic going to focus on and who do you choose to portray you and your supporting cast?
I’m hoping that any biopic about me would be about me attempting to save the world. I’m not sure what from, but there you go. (Also I would be super duper amused by any movie made about me, because that would require Hollywood to make a film whose main character was a WOC in a hijab whose main conflict was less about struggling with being Muslim than about making the perfect apple-gruyere pie.)
Frankly, I can’t think of a single actor who I’d envision as playing me, so I’m imagining a voice cast for the supporting characters and if anyone who knows me can think of an actress to cast as me, they can chuck the suggestion in my ask and I’ll add it here.
So, for best friends one and two, we’re gonna go with Amy Acker and Selena Gomez, respectively. Allison Scagliotti would do justice to my best friend at uni, I think, and we’d round out the cast with Rachel Bilson and Kristen Bell as Katie and Sydney.
6. what’s a dream show/movie you would like to see?
Hands down, an all-female Ocean’s Eleven style movie. Heist films are my lifeblood.
The questions that I’m asking:
