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 [#1238]

The last [and my favorite] episode of 'The Hollow Crown' airs tonight on PBS:  Henry V.

I'll be weeping by the end....again.

You're not the only one, dear... Imagine me holding your hand and all will be well. Unless that's weird, in which case, don't. :P

Haha--see today's post. I think we can wallow in it a while longer.

Actually, PBS kinda nipped my weeping in the bud because they didn't play the end credits right after the end of the play. The music in the final credits of 'Henry V' always got to me every time I watched it on the internet. The musical theme is somehow in the spirit of 'He was a great king, but by the time his son was a grown man, everything Henry V had fought for was gone.' That's just sad.
