[personal profile] shallowness
I've been reading fanfiction for over a decade, so you think I'd know how to avoid abandoned WIPs. Obviously, it's easier on archives than journals. It's that horrible moment, a few chapters from the end, when you think 'There's no way the writer can wrap all the story up unless if the chapters become exponentially longer.' And then you sigh.

Partly so I don't lose this - 'I am not a princess' an excellent music (fanmade? except the production values are pretty high) video set to a mix of Marina and the Diamonds songs that retells fairy stories. It lasts 10 minutes and contains strong language.

Also, I reread Agnes Grey by Anne Brontë over the weekend, because I felt it was time – it must be twenty years or so since I read it. Since then I’ve reread most of the other Bronte novels. This is one for the completeists, really. It’s not bad (especially compared with a lot of other nineteenth century novels) but it doesn’t have the fire of most of the rest of the books. There was a moment where I thought Charlotte would have banged home the point about the limited scope of Agnes’s life as a governess (because she’s a woman) compared with Weston’s, even as a subordinate curate (because he’s a man). It’s even blunter about how awful being a governess could be than the other books – but then, sisters, it gave you excellent material.

Thanks for the link to Marina and the Diamonds. I'd never heard of them before, but that video is priceless.
