Hans Matheson is incredible. But you already know that. The screencap is from Nero, a film that can easily be described as a missed opportunity to make an awesome movie. Hans was breathtaking as Nero, but he was stuck in a script that wanted too badly to be a love story and ended up not making much sense. And he makes the most of the role he's playing, he's amazing in every single scene, he's so good that you can almost forgive the movie for not being what it could have been, plot-wise. Three hours about Nero - I would have liked to see more politics and less artificial romance. When you get an actor as great as Hans, it's a SHAME not to give him a better script to work with. Seriously. *grumble* Either way, apart from his wonderful acting and the fact that he has a voice like an angel (yes, he sings a bit in this movie), he's just gorgeous beyond words. Couple of more pics behind the cut, because I'm too lazy for a proper picspam right now.

Now, the important part: postcards. I love writing postcards, and I know that many people love receiving them. If you want a postcard, just send me a PM with your address (even if I already got your address from my last holidays or something - I'm a bit too lazy to go through all my old messages to find them again ;)). Don't be shy - as long as we talk at least occasionally, I will gladly send you a postcard. If we just friended each other ages ago and never talk anymore, well, then I wouldn't really know what to write to you, I'm afraid.
- Watched RocknRolla today. This movie is made of awesome. Okay, I can't look at Gerard Butler without thinking "THIS IS SPARTAAAA!!!!", but I still enjoyed the movie a lot. Main reason, no surprise here, Mark Strong. Being awesome. Being badass, cool, violent, funny, and did I mention cool? I love the scene in which he explains how to do the "Archie slap" (his character is named Archie). Where do I have to line up if I want Mark to slap me around as well? ;) Also, I found these lines absurdly sexy: "That's right, sweetheart. You're fucked." His VOICE!!! [insert capslock squealing] Also, there's canon slash (unfortunately not with Mark). Watch the movie. Now.
- Also watched parts of The Mists of Avalon. Parts, because I'm not really interested in it, so I just watched the parts with Hans Matheson as Mordred. HOW CAN THIS ACTOR BE SO UNKNOWN AND UNDERRATED??? HE'S BETTER THAN 90% OF HOLLYWOOD'S SO-CALLED STARS!!! Sorry, had to say that. Since I am utterly predictable, I made caps. If I find the time, I might picspam the movie before I leave. (I know, you're all hoping that I won't find the time to spam you even more.)
- Going to watch Shutter Island with my brother tomorrow, yay!
Concerning fanfics: I know I won't exactly have much time for writing in Moscow. I'll have classes several hours a day, and I'll spend the rest of my time exploring the city. Also, I won't have a room to myself, so I'll hardly have the calm and privacy I need to work on longer stories. However, I want to write something. And since I discovered that writing drabbles is fun and doesn't take too long, I considered doing one of these challenges where you have to write 50 (or 100) drabbles with different prompts. Pairing? Blackwood/Coward, because they need more love. Problem? I can't decide which prompt table to use. I don't like the standard one because it includes useless stuff like several colours, and other prompts that are just plainly annoying. And just assembling my own prompt table from different tables seems like cheating, no? Or should I just do that? Use the prompts I like? Opinions? Recs for tables? Prompts you would like to see written for this pairing? Comments would be much appreciated.
( Little teasers for the possibly upcoming Hans picspam behind the cut: )
Long story short, Hans is also disturbingly beautiful, so I capped the hell out of this movie, and I thought I'd share. I hope it will inspire some people to write fic ... about Hans, about Coward, about any other character he's ever played, anything would make me happy. :D( huge picspam )
Right, and I almost forgot ... at some point in the movie he says to the Queen: "I see now, this is where I belong. I was a fool to stray so far from you." I can very well see Coward saying this to Blackwood as well ... but then again, I see that pairing everywhere. ;)
