Isn't it funny how after a few times of dear Viggo and Orlando running into each other a relationship break (-up) is confirmed?
Yes, I'm very happy here underneath my tin hat, thank you very much :D

After a week in your clutches I'm seriously considering a messy divorce involving heavy medication if you're not backing off anytime soon - preferably now!
While I don't mind scheduling more naps a day than I have taken since my toddler days, and while I absolutely love the great (if a little disturbing) dreams of Viggo and Orli my brain has blessed me with lately - I do want my life back. Please. Now!
I should go to bed, but first I need to apologize to all of you whom I didn't respond to these last few days... (and foremost to silvan_lady for not reading and commenting :( )
My muses have made a surprise-comback, I've been bitten by a huge VigOrli plotbunny and while I haven't written a single word so far, I've spent all of my waking moments these last days doing research. (By the way, my muses demand to ask you all for each and any information you can come up with in terms of Viggo and Orlando - they simply refuse to start real work until I've got all the facts in order... bossy bitches ;) )
I've browsed so many LJ-communities (in vain, let me add), read my way through various yahoo-groups (to no avail) and have read and looked at each and every piece of Viggo's art I could find (and a huge thanks to my lovely, lovely Phi who spent hours interpreting and discussing the most interesting ones with me - you know I blame this plotbunny on you and you alone!) ...
Additionally I've done some research on various interesting parts of this planet, and have come to the conclusion that while New Zealand still is the land I'd love to see one day, there are certain very, very stunningly beautiful places to be found in certain parts of Idaho... I guess, I can finally understand people who might chose to live there ;)
And yeah... I really, really might start writing fiction again. Wow. I'm completely stunned and a bit shaken by the violence of my creativity coming back to life, but I'm willing to go wherever my muses might lead. I'm determined to give this thing a try, yet I have no idea how to pull it off. I mean, apart from actually writing this thing a huge problem is actually getting somebody to take on the huge challenge of being my beta. The only definitive thing I know about this story at the moment is that I'm going to attempt to write it in English - which, as we all know, isn't my native tongue, which makes getting two distinctive character voices right even harder... Put the challange of one of them being British and the other one American-with-anything-else-mixed-in on top of that and you might be able to understand what a mammoth task this might prove for any soul nice enough to take on the challenge... *sighs*
Okay my dears... I once again apologize for being a mute recluse these last days, I hope my research-frenzy will burn down to a more normal level soon and that I'll be back with you soon ;) and now, I'm finally off to bed!
Let me start with saying that today, for once, I'm damn proud to be an Austrian.
Today Conchita Wurst, who won the Eurovision Songcontest 2014 about a week ago, had her first concert in Austria. It's been a free "thank-you"-gig at the Ballhausplatz and well... Let's say Austria hasn't been that great about a drag-queen with beard representing our country at the Songcontest for a long time. Obviously, once the rest of Europe actually voted for her the public reaction changed to "we're so open-minded, we're great with any kind of "different" lifestyle", etc. But still, the loud and persistent homophobia running wild mostly online put a major damper on at least my mood oftentimes.
Another thing I ... well, I actually DIDN'T want to talk about is this interview with Viggo Mortensen: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/
But since I can't stop mumbling and grumbling about it and I'm driving people nuts with it, I figured, I might as well get it out here...
And then, there are these two videos of Orlando talking about acting in "Romeo and Juliet" I've watched today:
And the second video? Just so much goodness in there ;) I mean, first, the fans talking to him were really great. Really focussing on the theatre part, asking quite insightful questions and keeping their cool for the most part.
And then him revealing that he's actually reading a poem to get into Romeo's mind-set? There's just no doubt in my mind WHICH poem he's reading there... *whistles innocently* And don't even get me started on the last few minutes of the video... I mean... I so loved how he obviously stopped himself from calling Viggo a genius (he really deserves to be called one, so... just keep on gushing about him, honey!) and his reaction to the comment that Viggo is a good-looking guy???! "He's devastatingly handsome"... I... I... I completely and utterly adore this reaction. And it makes my little fangirlish heart beat a lot faster. That's for sure ;) *happy sigh*
So yeah, I could go on and on about these videos, because they once again show me that Orlando really, truly belongs on a stage. He's obviously very happy there and he absolutely can and should be proud of what he accomplished as Romeo. (Although seeing his dedication to the text and the work he put into bringing this person to life really shows me how much it means to him - I wouldn't have needed to see him actually act to completely understand that he'd do his absolute very best in the theatre because it means so much to him....)
But now I do shut up and get to work... it's quite late and I should do something now. I really want and need to get at least 4 hours of sleep before I have to face my co-workers tomorrow *sigh*
