Hello, everyone! I am here, right on schedule (applause please!) to answer all the questions my lovely followers have asked.
An Elven Princess asked...
~Favorite actor and actress?
Umm...my favorite actor/actress sort of switches depending on what movies I've watched recently. :P However, Colin Firth has been a favorite of mine for awhile, so I guess we'll go with him. I think my favorite actress (assuming we're talking TV/movies here; if we include musicals, that complicates things :D) would be...Romola Garai, maybe?
(And please, everybody, keep in mind that I'm talking more about the characters these people play than the people themselves. I don't really know much about actors' private lives, as a general rule. :P)

~Do you like The Fiddler on the Roof? Would you consider it a classic?
Actually, I have never listened to or watched it, haha. Most of the people I know who have watched it do like it, though, so I guess it could probably be considered a classic? I don't know. ;)
Naomi Bennet asked...
~Do you have siblings?
Yes, I do! I'm the eldest of seven, total.
~Do you share a room with one of them?
Again, yes--my sister.
~What's the desktop picture of your laptop currently?
Michael Ball as Marius in the 10th Anniversary Concert of Les Mis.
~Have you read Rilla of Ingleside? What are your opinions?
I love Rilla of Ingleside! It might be my favorite of all the Anne books--no, wait, I prefer Anne of the Island. :P Philippa Gordon is amazing...but I digress. I actually wrote a review of it last year. If you want the shorter version: it's amazing. The end.
~What are some TV shows you've watched recently and what do you think of them?
Well, I watched four episodes of Sherlock last year; is that recent enough? I liked it very much and I hope to watch some more sometime in the future. Ummm, I watched a bit of Road to Avonlea a few months ago. It was charming (like country manners *bright smile*), and I loved picking out the different L. M. Montgomery references. The very latest TV show I watched was Doctor Who; I started watching it last month and liked it, but ended up just forgetting about it, haha.
~What's your favorite Calvin and Hobbes joke?
Probably this one:
~Which literary character do you think you're the most like?
I can't pick! Um, I guess a mixture of Catherine Morland from Northanger Abbey and Tacy from Betsy-Tacy.
~What was the last book/movie/fandom thing that made you cry? Made you laugh?
Made me laugh: The Lake Scene from P&P95. "Are you SURE your sisters are well? Really, really sure?"
Made me cry: when Betsy isn't chosen for the Essay Contest in Betsy Was a Junior.
~What's your go-to snack?
~Have you ever worn a really fancy hat? Fancy gloves?
Yes! I own fancy gloves, but I don't think I've ever worn them anywhere. A fancy hat, on the other hand...I wore a Fun Fancy Hat when I attended a performance of My Fair Lady live. It was amazing.
~Who's your favorite author? Least favorite author?
Favorite author: Jane Austen, who else?
Least favorite author: Ummm...Veronica Roth, maybe? :P
~What's your current favorite book? Favorite movie? Favorite musical?
Favorite book: Jane Austen books. :D And the Betsy-Tacy series.
Favorite movie: Pride and Prejudice (1995)
Favorite musical: Can anyone guess this one? :P
~Is there any question you wished someone had asked, but didn't? (feel free to answer it yourself, of course ;))
Hmmm...actually, no. That's kind of weird--usually I can think of a number of questions I'd like to be asked at any given time, but now now. Huh.
~Have you ever been to any national parks, like Yosemite or Yellowstone?
Nope! I would like to visit one sometime, but as yet I have not.
Miss Elliot asked:
~Favorite book so far this month? (Awkwardly worded. Heh.)
It's a tie between Betsy's Wedding, Betsy Was a Junior, Northanger Abbey, Emma, and Pride and Prejudice. Haha.
~Number of siblings?
Six! Two sisters and four brothers.
~Character in a period drama you look like the most?
...I actually have no idea. I can't think of a single one who looks like me. If you want book characters, that's another story, but...I literally can't think of anyone. :P
~Favorite (at the moment, at least ;-)) costume in a period drama?
Oooooh! Um, um...too many amazing dresses!! Okay, I think my two favorites are Maria Lucas's Netherfield Ball dress (seen here--she's on the left) and Emma's Highbury Market dress (here).
~Favorite breakfast food?
Cold cereal of almost any kind, and egg sandwiches. Not together, of course.
~Favorite movie made prior to 1950?
Les Misérables (1934). It's black and white, in French, and almost five hours long, and it is SO AWESOME. I absolutely adore it (and am still meaning to write a review of it :P).
~Gush about The Scarlet Pimpernel for a minute. Heehee. Or, if it MUST be a question, Favorite things about The Scarlet Pimpernel?
Bwahaha, what a delightful question! :D I love his heroism, his adventurousness, his all-around epicness, his love of his wife, his willingness to sacrifice himself...and of course, Anthony Andrews. Hehe.
~Have you seen the BBC Sherlock? If so, what is thy royal opinion on it?
I have, indeed! See my answer to Eva's question above for more information; I muchly enjoy it on the rare times I get to watch it. ;)
~Marius or Enjolras?
ENJOLRAS FOREVERRRRR. Marius is okay, but...he doesn't compare. :P
~Weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
Hmmm...a catfish sandwich, maybe? I'm really not that adventurous about eating.
~First period drama you ever watched?
Um...goodness, I don't even know! The Music Man, maybe.
~Favourite Bible verse?
Psalm 46:1-2 is my go-to answer, but there are so many verses I love now that I really can't answer that. :D
A librarian or an editor.
Evie Brandon asked:
~Sherlock or Doctor Who?
Sherlock, I think. Haha.
~Cumberbatch or Freeman?
Ahm...Benedict Cumberbatch. :D
