Nodds & Nends: Love Triangles, Matt Smith, and The Avengers
Do you bemoan the cliched love triangle? Marie Lu at Publishing Crawl discusses and questions The (Dreaded?) Love Triangle and why she has several series she enjoys even with the cliched triad. What it boils down to, is that relationships are often complicated, and if the complication makes sense in the story than it isn’t a cliche. I agree. Life is complicated, and if, in the story, it makes sense for the relationship to be complicated also,then I don’t have a problem with them. But it seems the constant inundation of young adult trilogies are filled with triangles for no other reason than creating conflict between two alpha males. [via RIASS]
I watched a cute rom/com this weekend which starred David Tenant, The Decoy Bride. Which was fun, if predictable. And if you are Tenant fan, you’ll probably enjoy him as a love interest. However, I look at him and just wish it was Matt Smith (although, Tenant looks like an excellent kisser). I appease my wishes, and perhaps yours, with this awesome portrait of Eleven by Harbek on DeviantArt.
Speaking of Doctor Who, season seven premieres at the end of August (which is just around the corner) with “Asylum of the Daleks,” after four new, Who-centric specials. [Edit: Please note, that it will be at the British Film Festival, hopefully these videos will make it to television and actually air.] According to Screenrant, they’ll be “mixing educational elements of documentaries with the relaxed fun style that the previous Doctor Who specials of last year exhibited.” Plus, the internets are all abuzz because DW made it to the cover of EW, which is kind of awesome. I’m really excited for Doctor Who to return, but I’m behind in all my television watching, and even though I’ve set things in motion for my life to slow down, not so much happening instantaneously, and it is hard to enjoy good TV if one is all stressed out. I may not get around to watching these Who specials. Also, I HATE the daleks!!! SO MUCH! [via The Mary Sue]
