eye candy: John Barrowman


Ever get used to someone, get used to their face, and then see them (or in this case, a picture of them) that makes you sit back and go, “…damn. Wow.”


This last week was a roller coaster of health issues, so that is as deep as it’s going to get, folks.

eye candy: Benedict Cumberbatch

I have a type. Do I ever have a type.

I’m constantly fascinated by the human face. Basically, we all look the same: eyes, noses, mouths, cheekbones, chins. And yet the way every face fits together is different, and while so many faces are beautiful, they’re all beautiful in a unique way.

This actor fascinates me because in every movie I’ve seen of his so far he somehow manages to have a different demeanor or carry himself in a different way, while still looking utterly like himself. He’s not conventionally handsome, but I like looking at him anyway. The way his face fits together pleases me.

(Sometimes I think my fascination with English boys is my DNA wanting to go home.)

eye candy: Rupert Graves

I am completely in love with this screencap.

I’d recommend some movies but I’ve only seen a few. Maurice first brought Rupert to my attention, but for a long time he was one of those, “Hey! It’s…that guy!” actors for me. (You know: you know the face but can never quite remember the name…until one day, hello.)

My hello was the new BBC series Sherlock, where Rupert plays Inspector Lestrade, and he’s perfection. Silver-haired, authoritative, paternal, perfection.

So I’m adding movies to my Netflix queue like mad, because beauty like this deserves some appreciation.

Whoever gets to wake up to this every day is very, very lucky indeed.

(What, you may ask, does this have to do with writing? Pfft, where do you suppose inspiration comes from?)
