N&S Crusade Finale!!!


*gulp* Well, I totally dropped the ball and didn't post this linkage until today. Blame it on a crazy day at work combined with the prep and delivery of a Peace Corps week presentation that I had yesterday afternoon. Anyways, enough excuses....

As you are no doubt aware, for the past several months I have been in cahoots with fabulous bloggers Kristie(J) and katiebabs in a crusade to get anyone and everyone to see the fantastic BBC movie (miniseries?) North and South. I had heard about the film from a post over on the AAR boards and then when I finally saw the movie and fell head over heels for it, I posted a thank-you thread which turned into a discussion about the movie. Kristie then watched it and did what Kristie does so well. She decided that others must be given the good news and put her formidable enthusiasm and effort into getting the word out. One thing led to another and we all decided to pool our resources. One very crazy AIM PJ party and countless email exchanges later, we launched the N&S Crusade (tm). And the rest, as they say, is history.

Yesterday, the grand finale to our Crusade was posted over at Ramblings on Romance, etc. Not only is there a plethora of pretty pictures, but author Carrie Lofty contributes a fascinating essay on Mr. Thornton's interactions with the male characters in North and South. It has to be said, that Carrie, she knows how to write. (And I blame her entirely for my ongoing obsession with all things Dr. Who and Torchwood, but that's a post for another day.)

(carrie, I'm posting Fist of Doom in your honor. lol)

AND there's more! A North and South DVD to be won! And a huge AIM PJ party to be planned. Oh the fun never does end. Hie thee to Kristie's for the details.

It's all SUCH a blast hasn't it? And of course it's not over - it will still go on!! As long as there is one person left who hasn't seen it - the Crusaders will carry forth to spread the word - heh heh heh.
And now we have a BIG pajama party to look forward too!!
And what's this Fist of Doom? Is it the picture you posted - 'cause if it is - what a great name for it :) As you know - I like naming pictures.

Oh - and I thought Carrie's piece was such a lovely way to tie in with the Finale!

Such a sexy fist!! Can I bite his ;)
Sula, you are my fellow fellow lover, have a crush on Richard's neck like I do and the best PJ chatter in the world. :)

I do believe that Carrie anointed that particular Richard look as "fist of doom"...I seem to recall her dubbing it as such during a review of the movie on her blog some time back. Yes, carrie? Am I right?

oh man, look at the intensity in his eyes! gah!

Carrie Lofty said...

Yeah, I called it Fist of Doom because he only does that when he's REALLY upset or worried. I think the one here on Sula's page is during his last conversation with Mr. Bell, while the one on my site right now is the one where, in the soup kitchen, Higgins tells him that Mr. Hale has died and Margaret will be leaving. Poor guy. It's either push that fist against his mouth or scream in frustration. Hence... Fist of Doom!
