I had a series of bizarre dreams last night.

First dream, I and my passel of non-existent siblings got mistaken for… some branch of the Royal Family, and spent about half of the dream pretending to be the children of the Duchess of something. Even though you’d think the Duchess of something would have recognised her own children. Eventually, naturally, we got found out, and I had to do a lot of stuttering explaining for why I was pretending to be her daughter, and stumbling over addressing her as marm-as-in-arm or ma’am-as-in-ham, and was fairly sure I was going to be arrested for impersonating a member of the Royal Family and accused of shoving the real ones into a closet somewhere. But I wasn’t. And then the Queen showed up, and she was very sharp old lady a la Judi Dench, and somehow I then ended up walking down Oxford Circus with the Queen and my mum, and we went into a record shop, and I bought velvet shoes with curly toes.

Second dream, I was in a production of Les Mis which apparently… had never had any rehearsals before, because all the scenes were massively out of order, and it was only my previous knowledge of the play which meant I got my cues at all. I was playing Javert, which was awesome, but I hadn’t been mic’d, so I was trying to project all these low notes and failing, and for some reason, during ‘Stars’, it was like the stage had been turned into a trampoline, or else gravity was suddenly one sixth the usual, because I was bouncing all over the place and trying to maintain a suitable gravitas whilst doing so. Which was difficult. And then halfway through, even though there was an audience, I realised that it actually was a rehearsal, because half the cast wasn’t costumed, and blocking hadn’t been finalised. And some of my castmates would play this game of, like, throwing themselves on me and stuff and trying to get my composure to break, because I was doing a Javert Stern and Unamused face, and was… apparently onstage during the entire production. Just planted off to one side with my chin up and my hands behind my back.

I dunno.

I'm quite glad I've started checking my flist a bit more regularly again and have come across a post of yours... Obviously, utmostly it's lovely to read. Also, though, I wanted to apologise because I think I must have said something to offend you. Not a surprise, as approximately a thousand stupid sentences fall out of my cakehole every day. I think I understand if you've had enough of that kind of thing. But I wanted to apologise. At the risk of sounding sycophantic, I've always really respected your opinion. You just seem so much more intelligent, so much more 'together' than me... Always have done.

(Your first dream, at least, had a good ending! I would happily settle for a Judi Dench-like queen. They already have similarities - they can both sass James Bond. But personally I'd like to see the real Dame Judi on the throne.)

I... don't believe you've said anything to offend me? Apologies in return if I gave that impression, though I can't recall what you might have said that would have done so.

Also, have a matching icon. Man, I haven't watched Hornblower in ages; I should do a rewatch.

Oh God. Now I just feel horribly embarrassed. This is obviously one of those things that grew into a monster inside my paranoid brain, you know? I messaged you once or twice on Tumblr and you didn't reply - so, being who I am, my immediate response was "WHAT HAVE I DONE".

Anyway, I know we don't talk much in any case but I'm glad we're okay.

Hornblower is always worth a rewatch, I say. Navy boys are the best~

Oh, I was wondering whether you were doing Yuletide this year? I'm currently preparing for it to consume my December...

Ahhhhh, I'm sorry, now I feel bad. Though I totally get that feeling; I have been known to do that in the past, where I end up going WHAT HAVE I DONE, WHY DON'T YOU LOVE ME, and the other person is going ... um, what? I'm not actually much good at using Tumblr for anything other than reblogging nonsense. Because I am a crotchety old fandom person. Or something.

Navy boys are the best. I've recently acquired a copy of Amazing Grace, because it has Ioan Gruffudd looking adorable in period costume, and there can never be too much of that.

I missed sign-ups this year! For the first time in... five, six years? I feel like they were over earlier than usual. But I was very woeful when I suddenly saw people on my f'list going, I've got my assignment! and I went... oh, that happened already? Though on reflection, as I'm graduating this term, I've got all sorts of uni nonsense to do, so possibly it may be for the best that I don't also have Yuletide to work on.
