anonsally asked: I am totally on board for an oft-overlooked Bronte book club... :) (OOBBC!)
Yay! I like OOBBC because yeah the only worry about the name is that it’s rather long. Also it sounds like the BBC! (Does the BBC have adaptations of any of these, anyone know?)
So if you happen to be involved with the creation of AoJE (hi we love you!) please do not click the read-more. Just run along now. Nothing to see here. Have a nice day :)
I want an Anne of Green Gables modern adaptation à la The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and AoJE.
Maybe I’ll be brave and write up a few episodes to see how they gel.
Someone…and I forgot now who (I really wish I could remember—maybe it was kyrie-anne??) suggested that Anne and Gilbert be rival editors of small town papers, and Dianna is a media major who is documented Anne for work-experience (or something like that).
I’m sure Kyrie-Anne’s idea was much more eloquent.
Now I want this again.
You should definitely write up something. There are so many ways their story could be adapted and be lovely. GO FOR IT.
Yeah this was definitely my idea. Here is the post where I talked about it.
I would die to write this thing and have real people make it into something.
Oh it would be so great!
I WOULD BE ALL OVER THIS SHIT.
Seconding this thing.
THIS. IS. FABULOUS.
Next time someone starts talking to me about the friendzone, I’m just going to be like “UNFULFILLED ZENITH OF FRIENDSHIP” until they shut up
Omg it’s so late and I’ve been on the internet all night and I haven’t even eaten any real food today —> Methought I heard a voice cry ‘Sleep no more! The tumbler does murder sleep’, / the innocent sleep, / Sleep that knits up the ravell’d sleeve of care / The death of each day’s life, sore labour’s bath, / Balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course, / Chief nourisher in life’s feast,—

One person posted a pic in preparation for watching the new video… then another followed… then another followed… and now it’s a thing ;)
I think it’s a good thing. We should call it Roch-ing. :P
People have also been using the tag #aojtea which I think is hilarious.
