This week, my obsessions are all Cute Boys on YouTube. So, obviously, that's a win. Here we go.
Everything I was obsessed with this week.
Because I know you want to know.
1. Johnny Stimson and "Penny"
Yeah, I know, this was already one of my obsessions from way back. But chances are, you weren't reading back then, or maybe you would just like a little extra sunshine added to your morning. Check out this cute boy with a uke and all his buddies getting together to serenade Penny. Just love it.
2. David Tennant reciting Shakespeare's Sonnet 18
It's the Doctor! Reciting SHAKESPEARE! It's not a video of him, per se, but you fellow Lovers of Ten will agree with me - the voice is enough.
3. Cameron Mitchell
Just...all of him. And everything he does.
I don't know how I stumbled across this kid on YouTube, but guys? It's Elias. IT'S ELIAS. *deep breaths*
Yes, Cameron. We will enjoy your song, and your haircut. Very, very much.
Annnnd an excerpt. Because I managed to find something I wrote this week that somehow doesn't suck.
In this scene: Mother (Queen of Chrome City, rawr) breaks the news to Havah that she's actually going to have to do something useful. 0_o
Mother sighed. “You will accompany Princess Laila and a bionguard detail to the Underground.”
Havah gasped, “The Iver?”
“Yes, Havah,” Mother said. “You need to see what happens down there. You need to understand them to rule them. To keep this City running.”
“But Mother!” A strangled whine escaped Havah’s throat. This was all too much. Too unbearable. It was enough that Jarrod had been matched with Laila. It was enough that Havah had basically lost her sister - how could she talk to her? Hold her hand? Ever share a secret with her again?
Now she also had to subject herself to the Iver Underground?
Rumors said that it was hot, grimy. Dirty. That the Iver smelled of dirt, that you could see it on their skin. That they sweat continually.
Havah clenched her jaw, and spoke to the carpet. Disrespectful to say the least. “I cannot. I will not.”
“You will.” The hint of a snarl underlaid Mother’s voice, grinding their conversation to a halt.
Havah jerked her head up, opened her mouth to say something, but no words would escape.
“The bionguards will come by this afternoon to retrieve you for your first visit.”
Havah turned on her heel and stalked toward the door. She couldn’t look Mother in the eye. Couldn’t say a word.
“My star,” Mother called.
“I love you.”
Havah took a deep breath, then kept walking.
