I will have to take pictures on NYE. I love my $40 dress. Plus, I intend to make my friend upset that he didn't buy it for his girlfriend when I told him to (of course, I'm secretly glad he didn't because now it's MINE MINE MINE, but he didn't believe that something that looked kinda bleah on the rack would look really good with some curves underneath it - which his girlfriend has, and would set off blue eyes-which she also has).
Spike's Bitches 21 Gunn Salute
[NAFDA] Spike-centric discussion. Lusty, lewd (only occasionally crude), risque (and frisque), bawdy (Oh, lawdy!), flirty ('cuz we're purty), raunchy talk inside. Caveat lector.
New thread! Shiny!
Oh, I'd say that's a yes, Betsy.
I can't believe I blinked and missed the end of the last thread.
Mr. Broom is too young to hit his age on post #26.
Betsy, hand me down my walking stick, wouldja?
In my head, that's exactly what juliana looks like, that shot, and the one where I think she's on a swing, wearing a Union Jack shirt, are my mental pics of juliana.
I love that picture.

Hi. Here's hoping, Susan, that you can find a fun and accurate way to take your character outside the lines.(There has to be one. I'm just the wrong woman to ask.)
No respect, I tell ya. No respect. At least I've got a year on our boy Polter-Cow.
I've got shoes older than him.(Not really, I think we were hearing from my detective persona, but it's a great caustic sentence, you know...maybe a last thought from "Uncle Lennie".
Just for the record, as someone who still reads the things from time to time, most Regency-set Historicals (as opposed to Regency romances proper, which have been a dying breed for almost a decade) are about as historically accurate as PotC. Even writers who I know damn well have done their research, and started off in true Regency romances, don't give more than a passing nod to historical accuracy these days.
It's not what the market is looking for, and not what's selling. Susan and Connie are absolutely correct on that score, and what it sounds like Susan's attempting is a delicate balance between what the general 21st century general reader expects/wants/desires and what the traditional Regency lover has been missing since the bottom fell out of the traditional Regency market in the mid-90s.
