I’m a little flattened by my conflicting feels at the moment (SO HOT!…wait, they’re brother and sister…HOOOOOOOT…siblings!…help) so I am going to go to bed and probably fail so epically miserably at sleeping because SO HOT but WAIT SIBLINGS.
real talk though in the book version of Stages I want to write, the Sebastian character is renamed Alexander and in my head he is Francois Arnaud and holy cow, okay, just. Yeah.
it’s sort of reinvigorated a lot of my thought processes about Stages in general.
like the sex scenes
This scene is killing me -
Their chemistry is fucking off the charts, I swear to fucking god I could watch Francois Arnaud and Holliday Grainger make out forever.
Okay, but seriously now, Cesare and Lucrezia, I am profoundly uncomfortable but I cannot deny it’s just stupendously hot.
I have not seen an on-screen couple with this kind of chemistry in a while. It’s as intense as Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Natalie Dormer, easily. Shit, man.
That was simultaneously scorching hot and ragingly uncomfortable.
I just found a whole pack of them in my bureau drawer! I have no clue why they’re there nor what I am going to do with them.
Wear them? :D
Do they work for you? From pics I’d say our hair is about the same texture/thickness, and I can’t seem to keep them in mine for more than 10 minutes (my hair rejects all forms of management).
Plastic ones tend to, when I let them (I am a fidgety person who plays with her hair a lot when it is especially long); they work especially well on second day hair and for putting my hair into a bun.
Metal wire combs, which I love dearly, do not, alas. They slide right out.
Lucrezia just invited Cesare to see her wedding gown.
But Lucrezia is not wearing her wedding gown.
She’s sort of. Reclining? On it.
