I want Rose Leslie in a 1970s period drama where she plays a cheeky girl from northern england who doesn’t quite fit in with the world around her and then meets this creepy boy who brings her to this whole new world where she’s supposed to fit in but instead faces all kinds of prejudice and discrimination and then the boy calls her a terrible name and they stop being friends and then she falls in love with this guy who used to be a prick but is actually a pretty great guy in the end and they have a kid and then she dies to save their child and actually ends up saving the whole world too.
Well ty! It’s just Elia, that’s not short for anything or anything like that. And yes, it’s a bit unusual, but when we consider that my dad says they wanted to name me Brunhilda, we understand a bit more about my parents and their naming selections.
My favourite era of history is… I dunno. I like a lot of eras. I like the 1940s too. I like the fantasy-realm version of the middle ages. I like the 1960s. I like ancient Greece. I like 1840s America with the rush of immigration. I like Colonial America. I like reading about all the periods in history. But I’m fairly ill-equipped to really live in any of those eras. I don’t function well without my running water, and flushing toilets, and tv and cell phone and computer. But I think it would be really cool to take a vacation to one of those times, not move there permanently, because then I could see it and experience it and come home to all my recorded tv and modern conveniences.
