The thing is Slumdog Millionaire wasn't trying to be "India". Any film that tried to do that would obviously fail. It was trying to be about Mumbai I suppose, but still I think it's a good film. Which bits did they Britishise? (It was a British film! I say in a rare moment of patriotism) I know Dev Patel's accent was occasionally off, but I already had a soft spot for him from Skins so I let that pass.
You're in Gujarat! I really liked Gujarat- I stayed with some family friends in Bhuj. Although I was there in May, so basically could only go out in the early mornings/ evenings before collapsing from the heat. I really want to back when it's cooler though.
When you've just discovered a chaptered fic and start reading it, do you review each chapter as you read it or do you wait until the end? Does this irritate you if someone does that with your own chaptered fics?
Mostly I review it once I realise that it's good enough for me to want to finish it. So a few chapters in, and then I'll leave a review every few chapters or so. With my own stories I'm just so grateful to get the reviews I don't really mind. Although I do love it when someone reviews every chapter, like Soraya is doing for Thin Red Lines, and Jess did for Bryter Later. When I write/ when most people write they put so much effort into each word, that it's nice when someone's clearly read it and cared about the details, and just got what you're trying to do, which is much clearer from reviews for each chapter than a general review at the end.
On an extremely random note, the weather is gorgoeus here. What's it like down your neck of the woods?
Grey skies today, but it was gorgeous yesterday. However there's a place on the site where I live called "The Woods" where the wi-fi still works and I'm sitting there now.
How did you get started reading fanfiction? Reviewing it?
I can't remember. I think it was after the GOF film came out and i was poking around MNFF and just clicked n fanfiction. I left a few squeal sort of reviews, but really only recently have started reviewing properly.
This is something I think I asked in the Gryffindor Tower, but since some of you people aren't allowed there ( ) I'll ask it here as well.
Have you ever written about OCs/ an OC and canon character in immense detail and then suddenly heard a song which describes their character/ relationship perfectly in about two minutes and far more succinctly than you've managed? Or is it just me?
