callista: (channing and jamie)
It's a sign of how quickly the fandom has swallowed me up that I couldn't stop myself from buying The Eagle of the Ninth Chronicles. It's also a sign of how little research I actually did that I was completely unaware that it's a book for children (well, technically it's for young adults, and technically I am a young adult). This explains why I couldn't find it under General Fiction and why I very nearly LOL'ed at the salesperson when she told me it was in the Children's section. I suppose I should feel bad for reading and enjoying porny fanfics based on a novel for innocent teenagers (oxymoron alert), but I choose to lay all the blame on Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell and their unabashed mutual adoration in both the film and real life. All those lingering looks while traipsing around Scotland and during press interviews? So not helping, guys. And while I'm spreading the blame around, I must also mention [personal profile] cobweb_diamond and [info]onelittlesleep for their very compelling promotional posts. Hi guys, you don't know me, but I blame you anyway. Let's all go to the special hell together.  But most importantly, none of this would be possible if my darling friend and neighbor[info]_chimoms hadn't coerced persuaded me to watch The Eagle. Credit where credit is due and all that.

I feel like I just wrote the Acknowledgements part of a thesis paper entitled "The Perversion of Rosemary Sutcliff's The Eagle of the Ninth: Why Fanfiction is the Most Amazing Thing Ever".

ETA: Channing Tatum is making an honest-to-God movie based on his youth as a stripper. A STRIPPER. HE IS TAKING A FELLOW MALE STRIPPER UNDER HIS WING. Channing, we fangirls love you as much as you love us ♥
