The "Brit a Day" series

What does a months-long parade of attractive British men have to do with fiction, you might well ask? These gentlemen have inspired some lovely scenes, part of the life I live in my head. Over time, some of these scenes reach out to one another and begin to form a story. For the present, each one of these pictures provides a writing prompt for me, a way to keep me writing with a sense of passion and narrative, even when the stories are not yet fully formed.

A Brit a Day [#453]

I snagged this photo off the internet recently--it's dated July 2007, which looks about right, but I can't be sure. At any rate, it's my new favorite picture of Alan Rickman in all his arched-eyebrow glory. I should do a week of posts on arched eyebrows sometime. I bet I have multiple examples for every regular member of the cast. Raising one brow independently of the other seems to be a hallmark of fine British actors and musicians.
