mayhap: vintage topless woman reclines with book (one-handed reading)
I just saw that my Celia/Rosalind fic was recced in an eclectic femslash roundup on The Toast. That explains the influx of fresh guest kudos! My plot to achieve extremely niche press by combining "respectable Shakespearean pastiche and naughty femslash" is working!
mayhap: (girls kissing)
This is my first story for my kink bingo card, for "writing on the body", and that isn't even on any of the lines I was going to do, so I guess it's my free space.

Like Juno's Swans by [livejournal.com profile] mayhap
As You Like It. Celia/Rosalind. R. 1,224 words.
Written for [community profile] kink_bingo (kink: writing on the body). 'Lying prone, as if in supplication before the great god Hypnos whose worship no man can abjure long, Rosalind displayed the fine white planes of her shoulders and back to great advantage, which put Celia in mind of a fine jest.'

The bed which Ganymede shared rustically with his sister Aliena in their rude rented cottage was not so grand as that the cousins Rosalind and Celia had occupied in their proper persons at court. )
mayhap: Russell Brand plants a kiss on Noel Fielding (Goth Detectives)
Shakespearean fools never interest me on the page, but I have to admit that the actor who played Touchstone as if he were channeling Russell Brand really made it work for me.

Last time I read (okay, skimmed) AYLI, which was for a class, we mostly ended up discussing the M/M homoeroticism of Elizabethan transvestite theatre in general and 'Ganymede'/Orlando in particular, but the F/F homoeroticism is also really fun! I mean, it doesn't go anywhere canonically either, because Rosalind is SO MEAN to all of her girlfriends, but still.
mayhap: monks with text check out my gospel of mark fanfic / you are not a very good monk (Biblefic)
I think it's hilarious that there are actually people complaining about the legions of hormone-addled Hiddlestoners suddenly taking an interest in the Henriad. I think it is totally endearing and, among the underaged cohort, probably going to be a great boon for their English classes/AP tests/A-levels/what have you, as well.

But then, I suppose these same killjoys would say I'm not appreciating Shakespeare in an appropriate and mature manner, either…

Ceiling Hal is watching you fornicate
mayhap: watercolor of a girl looking down (a face like a glass of water)
A huge round of applause for [livejournal.com profile] vagabond_sal, who was kind enough to play a fabulously gay Marlowe to my Shakespeare for my presentation on homoeroticism in the Elizabethan theatre.

By popular request (okay, two people) the text of this very brief play is reproduced here. I feel I should warn you, though, that I'm, you know, totally not Shakespeare; I just play him on TV.

Here be historical RPS )

mayhap: Pippin clutched in Gandalf's arm with text meddling in the affairs of wizards (meddling in the affairs of wizards)
I am celebrating by writing a pretentious short play as a final project for my class about Shakespeare and Marlowe, or at least fellows with those names stuck on them, exploring themes related to homoeroticism in Elizabethan theatre. In my universe, this is an appropriate tribute.

On Tuesday, we're having a cake for him, and I'm presenting my project. I'm going to draft a couple of unsuspecting classmates to read aloud it for me. They get to wear garish berets that I bought at the thrift store. Oh, this is going to be fun.

mayhap: Lyra reads the alethiometer (Lyra)
Maxim magazine has placed a number of posters in my neighborhood (and, doubtless, in others) urging women not to manicure their men, as it removes their "rough edges". I think I speak for possessors of sensitive erogenous tissue everywhere when I say that if you ignore my complaints about your rough edges, you are going to find yourself relying heavily on your Maxim magazine, if you know what I mean.

I have to come up with an idea for a final project for my Shakespeare and the London Theatre class before 3:30 this afternoon. I'm thinking of choosing a passage/scene and performing it/getting other people to perform it various ways, possibly including rewriting in contemporary language and/or setting. This has an obvious presentation component, but a much less obvious paper component.

We are currently reading Much Ado About Nothing. Beatrice/Benedick forever, and a pox on anyone who doesn't think that loud declarations of hate can be a perfectly sound basis for a pairing. ;)

Does anyone want to hear my rant about my hatred for the MPAA rating system in all its manifestations, but especially on fanfiction? I keep meaning to write one, and then getting distracted by shiny things instead.

mayhap: hennaed hands, writing (Default)
People are dumb. And, apparently, illiterate.

I put up my Shakespearian magnetic poetry set when I moved in, and so far the only gem that has been put together by anyone other than me reads
his almost hast nay our use yield you
In other news, tonight is the night that we come together to celebrate ... free food at the dorm's Super Bowl party. What, any of you were excited about something else? ;)

I may or may not bother watching for the commercials; last year they were pretty dull.
