muccamukk: Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson walking arm in arm. Text: "We strolled about together." (SH: Strolling)
I buzzed through the Guns of Navarone the book yesterday (skimming for dialogue and slashy introspection, mostly skiping the fight scenes) and it was regrettablely not as enjoyable as the movie. I mostly just don't like that style of adventure novel, and found the dialogue quite clunky. Interestingly Mallory was more openly emotional, and he and Andrea were quite a bit closer and more overtly slashy (though the I'll likely kill you in the morning plot was gone). All two of the female characters weren't there. The two-three other slash ships weren't shippy at all.

So like I mostly want fic for the movie, and there's exactly zero. [personal profile] giglet did a couple movie/book fusion things, which I liked, but there is no straight up movie fic where say Andrea finds Mallory after the war or we find out what happens to Roy. Boo.

I tried to make Nenya watch Going My Way, but she demanded Gregory Peck and would not accept Bing Crosby as a substitute. Which is fair, I guess.

Really pretty day today, so I mowed the lawns for the first time. Nice to see the sun.
