The only thing I did today was watch Jane Austin’s Persuasion, which was just as sad as I remember it being, but maybe even sadder.

The story was told better than the last time I watched this though, as it is told from the end of the story, without the boring part at the beginning with the love story and the not being allowed to marry. They skip right to the end where the heroine is pining pathetically and so is the hero, though he is wearing a dashing uniform (yum… goddamn it Bradley, get in a Victorian era movie already).

But the best part was seeing Anthony Head as King Uther with Daughters instead of a son. Which means that Arthur is the heroine… LOL at that mental image. But it was very strange as my brain was trying to figure out if I wanted him to be Giles undercover training a slayer or if wanted him to be Uther and then, THEN, my brain decided this would make an awesome fic. I think someone needs to do it with Merlin and Arthur.

The other funny part was the bandit sociopath manipulator guy from 2x11 The Witch’s Quickening was in it, as a crippled (limping) officer, and he was nice and awesome and it was kind of like SEE MEANT TO BE AN EPIC AU!

Anyway, two more days…
