A to Z Challenge - C
C is for "Bowties are Cool"
According to Matt Smith's Doctor, anything he wears is cool: hats, bowties, stetsens (I apologise for the spelling!), fezes, you get the picture (and yes I realise hat-type items are 3 of the 4 things I listed!). In the original cross stitch pattern, this one actually says "It's so cool" which is another thing he says, however the person I am making this cross stitch for listed "Bowties are cool" as one of their favourite quotes so I changed it. Like "Bad Wolf", "bowties are cool" has become one of the most iconic sayings of New Who. A fez and a bowtie mean Matt Smith, in the same way that the paper 3D glasses have become David Tennant. I think Peter Capaldi should just be represented by a pair of bushy eyebrows.
|Thoughts: should there be a hyphen between 'bow' and 'ties'?|
I think it looks okay but spell-check disagrees...
C is for Cedric Digory
*spoiler alert if you haven't read/watched Goblet of Fire*
I'm not a Robert Patterson fangirl. I've never seen/read Twilight. I didn't drool over Cedric Digory in the films. In fact I didn't particularly even like him in the film - he was just such a nothing character; a bit self-centred but otherwise nothing much. I liked him more in the book. You got a better sense of his conflict over Harry being chosen "as well" and the battle between wanting to win vs wanting to pay Harry back (I mean in a positive way). I remember back before I first read Goblet of Fire, there was an interview with JK Rowling where she said "a well loved character will die" in the book. I felt kind of cheated that it was Cedric. He wasn't a well loved character for the reader. First time I think I've felt cheated that a character's death in a book wasn't more significant.
For a character I don't overly like, that's a fairly long description!
