Uni is now over for the year! And I'm glad! Four papers + Nationals + world's second-worst exam timetable = stressed, exhausted me. I'm now in the process of catching up on sleep.

I'm not very good at posting, am I? Half the time I start to post and then something shiny goes by and I lose interest. Stupid ADD.

In order to prevent this post from being entirely pointless, here are some links to Melissa McEwan's steampunk wedding ring, the TV Tropes page for Walking With Dinosaurs and Syaoran and Watanuki cats

To what stereotype(s) do you conform, much to your chagrin and/or amusement? And what stereotype(s) do you defy?

I'll post my own answers later.

So, I'm acting in our school production which is a play in which, basically, a bunch of characters from famous plays complain about their lives, decide to kill themselves and then change their minds and live happily ever after.
And I'm playing Hedda from Ibsen's Hedda Gabler.
She's a bit psycho.  It's fun.

On an unrelated note, I was thinking about fairy tales and how usually the heroine'sonly function is to wait around for the handsome prince to rescue her and how much that sucks.  And then I was thinking about fairy tales that aren't like that, and that got me thinking about various retellings of fairy tales.  So which fairy tales do you particularly like, and are there any retellings that made you like stories you were otherwise indifferent to or disliked?
Personally I love The Snow Queen even in its original format with its somewhat patronising narrator.  There are several reasons for this: that the heroine rescues the hero instead of the other way round, the way she journeys from 19th century Frankfurt into more timeless imaginary places and the way she travels through the four seasons.  As for retellings, I particularly like Gail Carson Levine's Ella Enchanted (Cinderella), Adele Geras's Watching the Roses (Sleeping Beauty) and Lili Wilkinson's Scatterheart (East of the Sun, West of the Moon).

So yeah.  Studious post is studious.  Or something.
