Twidays: Bel Eff-Me

Why do I find these SO much more attractive than Robward? There is just something so delicious about period dress! I can't help but think about how much fun it'd be to slowly peel each layer of clothing off of Mr. Darcy... Um... I mean... *drools*

I suspect that part of my love has to do with the fact that old-fashioned-leading-men were so damn self-assured. I mean, look at that face! It says "If you mess with me I'll beat you with my riding crop." And I'm okay with that.

I agree completely. Rob in an ascot is way more swoon-worthy than Robward (for me). Maybe because it makes me think of this...

*dreamy sigh* Seriously, how is it that British men are able to pull this look off so easily? And by "easily" I mean, "looking ridiculously hot."

Oh, Colin. *sigh again* Because she knows me so well my friend @MsTallulahBelle (the author of the fabulous Elemental) sent me this picture, which is not from Bel Ami. *sigh* Pardon me while I loosen my corset lacing.

So what period piece of literature would we like to see Rob star in next?

Can I vote for Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife?

I have a friend (who I am leaving unnamed to protect her innocence) who is reading that. She said it's really porn-y.

My point exactly. *wicked grin*


  1. Oooooh, Mr. Darcy...*happy sigh*...Rob as Mr. Darcy?? Mhmmm. As for the ascot, yes, somehow yummy British actors get away with that look. As for the riding crop comment -- ROTFL. I can't, even, BEGIN to respond. Yes, I'm still snickering.

  2. By the way, if you haven't rented "Bright Star" yet -- do.

  3. Have I ever told you how desperately I wanted Hugh Dancy in HBO's Elizabeth I. Yes, the dashing English bad-boy. *fans myself, then pulls myself together* Of course, I'll take a dimpled Southerner over an Englishman any day...
