Another Period Drama Tag!


I've been in a bit of a blogging slump again, my friends. I know, I know, I can see you rolling your eyes and saying "what? another gloomy post from Natalie? She just can't stay happy and upbeat anymore, can she?"  But don't worry! This is actually a very fun post! And the truth is, it isn't even mine—

'Hem. ANYways, what I was trying to say is that this is a TAG post! *cheers* It's been awhile, hasn't it? 
See, I was catching up on blog posts that I haven't read (after skipping like 100 because I haven't really kept up with the blogging world since, like, before Christmas *cough*) and commenting on quite a few of my friends' answers to the "Another Period Drama" tag. It looked like such a fun tag--and I actually felt inspired to do it!

But there was one problem. No one had tagged me!

Of course, I could do it anyways, as Miss March tagged anyone who would like to play. (And I'm not averse to stealing tags when the situation demands it. :P)

But I still felt just a little bit let down. Had I neglected my blog (and my friends') for so long that they no longer bothered to tag me?

Then, as I clicked to Cordy's answer post for this tag, I scrolled to the bottom and realized:

Oh. How stupid I've been.

Cordy tagged me!! <3

Hooray!! I wasn't forgotten after all! *hugs Cordy*

how is he so cute it's ridiculous
Moral of that story? Read blog posts in chronological order. :P

And don't suspect your friends of forgetting you, because odds are they haven't. 


And that ends our Advice From Natalie for today. Thank you. Enjoy the post. *bows*

1. What was the most recent period drama you watched? Share what you thought of it.
My mom and I are currently watching the second season of Road to Avonlea. It's not as good as the first season so far, but I LOVE this show. Because it all ties in with Anne of Green Gables and AoGG is one of the first period dramas I ever watched and I love L.M. Montgomery and Prince Edward Island and Avonlea and everything. It's all so nostalgic and cozy and heart-warming. *happy sigh*
Road to Avonlea, I feel better already. Escapism at its most soothing.

2. Do you generally prefer period dramas in the form of a movie or a TV series/mini-series? Why?
Probably a TV/miniseries because I want every. single. detail. from. the. book. pleaseandthankyou.

3. What is your favorite musical period drama?


Need I even say it?

4. Read the book first or watch the movie first?
Usually book first, if available and not too long. ('Hem. *Glances at Dickens*)

5. What is a valuable life lesson you learned from a period drama?
Food is my one weakness. (ha)

6. Which period drama hero would you be likely to fall in love with in real life?
Um. A lot of them?? (Wow that sounds weird. You know what I mean, right? :P)

Weeellllll, considering Gilbert is already taken by Miss March and Mr. Knightley is a little old for me (since we're talking real life situation and all) I'll say....


And if you do not know which Mountie, I shall think you a simpleton! :P


7. Do you ever like to binge-watch a period drama series?
Of course. I mean, I don't think I've ever watched one straight through or anything...but an episode (or two) a day? Sure.

8. What things go best with watching a period drama?
My mom (or a friend, if mommy is unavailable), some piping hot tea, and a delicious scone with cream.


9. Which period drama do you think you would fit into best?
Ooooh, I don't know. Wait a minute. Yes, I do. Anne of Green Gables. (Because then I could live in Avonlea and be friends with Anne!)

10. If you could have any period drama character for a best friend, who would it be? And why?
Urrghhh, why do we have to have hard questions? Hmmm. I'm going to say Esther Summerson from Bleak House. I just think we could get on well together. She's a fine girl with no nonsense about her, you know.

11. Show us a picture of a period drama costume you wish you could wear in real life.
Despite having sworn off watching Poldark (don't get me started), I still adore the aesthetic and setting of the wind-whipped clifftops and vast moors. Demelza has quite a few pretty outfits I love, and her hair is just #goals. Anyway, all this is to say that I really love this dress. (Just raise the neckline a tad, thanks.)
 

I also just remembered that I adore Cinderella's "servant" dress, which is funny, considering how similar it is to the above.
LJS - tumblr New Cinderella stills

I could go on about other outfits, but this is supposed to be a relatively quick post. :P

12. Are there any period dramas you like to watch during a particular season or holiday?
Christmastime just isn't the same without the 1994 Little Women. <3

13. Which period drama has your favorite soundtrack?
Hmmmmmmmmmm. Good question but.....it's so hard!! I actually don't listen to as many soundtracks as I should. Like, I enjoy the music a LOT during the movie, but I rarely listen to the soundtracks. (Shocking, I know.) I do really love the soundtrack for the 2005 Pride and Prejudice, actually. There's my answer.

14. Dream cast your favorite actor and actress in a period drama of your choosing; tell which parts they would play and why. 
I've said it before and I'll say it again: The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery. Michael Fassbender. Alicia Vikander. (ARE YOU LISTENING, HOLLYWOOD???)

“Michael &amp; girlfriend Alicia Vikander shooting 'The Light Between Oceans' (2016). ☀️”
SEE HOW CUTE 

15. Are there any period dramas you like more than one version of?

I can never decide between the '95 and '08 Sense and Sensibility, or the '96 and '09 Emma.

16. What are the top three period dramas that you haven't seen on your to-watch list?
Hmmm, I don't know. There's plenty I'd LIKE to see, but won't because of content. I guess I don't really have a to-watch list at the moment.

17. Show a picture of your favorite period drama hairstyle.
I feel as if this is cheating because it's not really a hair style, but in keeping with the outfit I chose....
Ross Poldark & Demelza ♥ Poldark ...i love British series

18. What was your favorite wedding in a period drama?
I feel almost wrong saying this but.....perhaps Robin and Marian's?


(I'M SORRY OLIVIAAAAAA) (*cries with you and hands tissue*)


19. What is your favorite biographical period drama?
I was all ready to say Amazing Grace, hands down, but THEN I remembered Chariots of Fire......
Chariots of Fire: Eric and Jennie Liddell | "And when I run I feel His pleasure!"

THEY'RE BOTH SO GOOD. I'm not sure I can answer this anymore.

20. Which historical novel will you forever recommend to anyone and everyone?
I'm not sure I can think of ONE novel. I usually recommend books I love to people who I think would love them, too. So it really depends on the person. Sorry. :(

The End! I hope you all enjoyed this. Now I'm off to get some sleep because it's 11:30 pm (I know you're laughing, Miss March) and I have quite a few things to do tomorrow. Farewell!!

Mansfield Park (2007)

PS. If you understood all the references that Steve understood, bravo!

PPS. I apologize for the inordinate amount of gifs in this post. :P

PPPS. I forgot to tag anyone. If your birthday is within the next five months, or your favorite color is blue, consider yourself tagged! (I'm in a silly mood. :P)

  1. *fistpumping* I wouldn't ever forget you, Natalie! *hugs you back* (And I think I speak for the rest of your blogging friends here when I say you are never forgotten!) <3 This was such a fun tag that I really couldn't resist tagging you. :D

    1. Ooh, Road to Avonlea is great!! Many episodes are better than others (and season six will kill you with feels, but I will say no more) but I'm excited that you're watching them!

    3. Okay, after reading everyone's answers...I know more period drama musicals than I realized. Hello, Cordy. Thinking about it, I probably could have called your answer. :D

    5. Well played.

    6. Ahh, I likey your style!! (A whole lot!)

    10. Dear Esther!! Love her!! (Have you read Bleak House, or watched it, or both?)

    13. Though I hate the movie, I must admit, the soundtrack is excellent.

    16. Haha, I struggled with this question for the same reason...

    This was such fun to read!!

    P.S. Please ignore the fact that this comment was made long after you wrote the post. Don't do the math for how late I'm staying up. Bad form, that.

    P.P.S. I think the gifs were fantastic...but that's just me.

    1. Awwww, thank you, Cordy!!!! <3 You're the best!

      1. I'm glad to hear you think so! Most of season two hasn't been TERRIBLY spectacular....but I still love the show and will definitely keep watching. (Oh no, you have me scared now about season 6....)

      6. Heehee, glad you agree!

      10. I have only watched Bleak House, but I do really want to read it. :)

      PS. Heehee, no worries. ;)

      PPS. Aww thanks!!!

  4. Haha, this was most amusing. ;D

    I love the dresses you chose! And I agree about Demelza's hair!
    Well... my favourite colour has ALWAYS been blue, so I shall consider myself tagged. :D
    1. The most recent period drama I watched was... does The Greatest Showman count? If so, then I think it amazing and beautiful and inspiring. If not, then the one before that was probably the new Little Women TV series on Stan. I liked it, but it wasn't as good as the book or any of the other movies I've seen.
    2. Of course I prefer them in mini-series form! They're LONGER!!! You can enjoy more of it! (And also, more chance for character development.) (And attention to detail.)
    3. Les Miserables is my favourite musical period drama, but Newsies is CLOSE. VERY CLOSE.
    4. The book first, although I don't often do it. :P (Mostly because the movies are much easier to get hold of, in my case.)
    5. Ehh... a life lesson... well, probably "don't match-make or gossip". Emma definitely taught me that. :P
    6. Gilbert Blythe is probably who I would fall in love with.
    7. Well, of COURSE. :P I think I've alllmost watched the entire P&P '95 on the same day once. But not quite.
    8. Rain outside, a snuggly couch inside. Also yummy food and beverages.
    9. I would LOVE to live in Avonlea, but I think my heart lies with the March family, and that is where I would feel at home.
    10. Such a MEAN question. :P Is La La Land a period drama?? Because I'd love to have Mia as a friend. She's brave and funny and spunky and I reckon I would 'click' with her.
    11. The only pretty dress I can think of right now is the ballgown Cinderella wears in the new Cinderella movie. That's not really applicable, but I WOULD WEAR IT. :D
    12. Like you, I enjoy watching Little Women '94 around Christmas. :D And also, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is fun in spring.
    13. Too hard!!! Besides ones that aren't musicals... I really love the soundtrack to Cinderella 2015.
    14. My favourite actor and actress... um... gee, that's hard. I don't know!
    15. Yes, Sense and Sensibility ('95 and '08) and Pride and Prejudice ('95 and '05).
    16. Let's go with "The Light Between the Oceans", "The Crown" and "Somewhere in Time".
    17. I don't really have one?? I like Lorna Doone's half-up-half-down hairstyles!
    18. Meg and John's wedding in the new Little Women series was lovely! It made me want to be there. :D
    19. Miss Potter!
    20. LITTLE WOMENNNNN!!!!!! :D

    1. Heehee thanks, Gabby!

      Yay!
      1. Ooh, I've heard about the new Little Women series. I'm hesitant about it, but I definitely want to give it a try if I can find it. :)
      3. I used to really love Les Mis....I find it a little too sad for my taste now, but when I do listen to the music....gahhh. SO GOOD. :D (One Day More, though...)
      8. I love watching movies when it's rainy, too.
      10. I wondered about that, too! Let's just say it counts. ;)
      11. IT'S GORGEOUS. I approve your choice.
      16. Oooh, those are all ones I really want to see, too! I'm not sure if I ever will, but they definitely intrigue me. Also, Brooklyn. (But there's a sex scene grrr)

      Thanks for doing to the tag, Gabby!!

  5. Road to Avonlea is so so great! Sadly, we stopped in half of season 4 because THE SITE STOPPED! And we couldn't find it ANYWHERE! (Capitals because I'm mad we can't finish it ;)) You're right about it, by the way, it has a really warm and cozy and family feeling when you watch it and I really loved it, for as far as we could watch it. I like mini-series better also, 'cause you get more time to watch it and you can enjoy more :D
    Newsies! I hadn't thought of that yet! It's usually afterwards, when you yourself already answered the questions, that you suddenly remember other things you could have used for your answers. Lke Newsies.
    Who doesn't know which Mountie that is? :) WCtH of course! (we're still waiting for season 5)
    Demelza has pretty costumes, yes, and her hair is so pretty too!
    Yeah, P&P 2005 has good soundtracks, I really enjoy listening to them so now and then(not too much, of course)
    I was considering choosing Robin and Marians wedding too! It is so SO sad, but at the same time I just LOVE their wedding, because it finally happened and it was so beautiful, heartbreakingly beautiful...That picture makes me want to burst into tears.
    Poldark is real good, and the setting is gorgeous, although I hate the fact that every single thing goes wrong and just when you think it is going to be alright with all the things going wrong and the huge mistakes being made, something bad happens! It is quite annoying for me, that's why it isn't my absolute favourite, but I like it. Though it has pretty irritating characters in it *frustrated and angry looks at Ross and Elizabeth and George* Argh, so irritating!
    I agree with S&S. Those two versions are so good, I can never choose! We only watched the 2009 version of Emma, so I can't say anything about that :)
    Gonna say adieu now!

    1. Ohh, I'm sorry you couldn't continue watching it, Ruth! I'm watching it from my library, but it doesn't have the entire series so I may have to buy it off Amazon someday. I agree; I love that it's a long series! <3

      YAY! Glad you like Jack, too. I never made it past season 2 though because my library doesn't have all the seasons. :(

      Exactly. It's beautiful and so full of emotion, even though it's their last moments together.

      Yeah, Poldark just had too many unprincipled characters for me to enjoy it. Glad you are able to, though! The setting IS beautiful!

      The 2009 version is beautiful. :)

      Thanks for your comment!!

  6. I'm just going to be sitting here thinking about how much I want a Blue Castle movie with Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander now, thanx.

    (also, I agree with you about Poldark. I swore it off after the first season but golly, is its aesthetic gorgeous. I'm still made about how good that show *could* be, but instead...it's not.)

      Thanks so much!!

  9. I love that line of Flynns at the beginning :) Actually, let's be honest, I loved that entire introduction. That second gif is so darn adorable....

    NEWSIES!!! I love that musical too, to death :)

    LE GASP - you are much braver than I am. As much as I adore Jack, I would not break that ship for ANYTHING.

    Agreed - tea is very important when watching a period drama.

    I agree, I love the Georgian style of dress. Though I like almost any kind of historical dress from the Georgian to the Edwardian period.....

    That's my major beef with period drama too - a lot of the ones that I want to watch too have objectionable content. *pouts* trying to get a to-watch list for it is ridiculously hard now that I've watched almost all the good ones.....

    I dearly loved this post, Natalie!!

    1. Me too, Catherine! Ahhh, glad you agree about the second gif. :D

      Exactly. <3

      TRUE. But I guess I took the question as a "if this guy didn't already have a love interest" sort of question. I mean, if I knew Jack and Elizabeth in real life, I'd certainly like him but wouldn't take him from Elizabeth! They're too perfect for each other. <3

      Glad you like tea, too!

      Same. I think I've watched all the completely clean ones there are...though there may be a few obscure ones still floating around.

      Thank you!!!

  11. Well what d'ya know . . . my birthday is in two months AND my favorite color is blue. SO HERE I GO.

    1. Most recent period drama I watched: "The Greatest Showman." It was a joyous, happy movie and I loved it very much :)
    2. Movies or TV shows/miniseries: I think I prefer miniseries, especially the 3 or 4 episode ones. There's enough time to get in all the material, but at the same time you're not overwhelmed with something dragging on and on.
    3. Favorite musical period drama? HAMILTON. :D
    4. Book first, or movie first? Usually, the book.
    5. Valuable life lesson you learned from a period drama? Sometimes, you get a second chance. Persuasion, Jane Austen. :)
    6. Which period drama hero would you fall in love with in real life? Is this even a question???? COLONEL BRANDON.
    7. Do you ever like to binge-watch a period drama series? Sure. Who doesn't? ;-)
    8. What things go best with watching a period drama? Perfect solitude, my headphones (to block out external sound), and a warm blanket.
    9. Which period drama do you think you would fit into best? H'm. Probably The Woman in Gold. I would dearly love to live in 1920s Vienna, with all the artists and intellectuals and coffee shops. I just love those bits of the movie, anyway; there's so much peace and a sort of gentle creativity :-) (And then the horrible Nazis come and ruin it all. WHY.)
    10. If you could have any period drama character for a best friend: How about Chava from Fiddler on the Roof? She's quiet and likes to read, I think we would get on well :)
    11. Period drama costume you wish you could wear in real life: This is easy. Emma's yellow silk wedding gown, from the '09 movie. I've always adored that dress.
    12. Period dramas you watch during a particular season/holiday? None, really?
    13. Favorite period drama soundtrack: Definitely P&P 05.
    14. Put your favorite actor and actress in a period drama of your choosing: Okay, THIS is a bit of a knotty problem. I'm assuming you mean, favorite MODERN actor and actress? People currently living? That would be Saoirse Ronan and David Tennant; and . . . I have no idea what period-drama roles they could possibly play. Especially since I can't see them together as a couple. I guess I'll have to pass on this one :-/
    15. Period dramas you like more than one version of? None, really.
    16. Top 3 period dramas on your to-watch list? North and South, The Crown, and Out of Africa.
    17. Favorite period drama hairstyle: Anastasia's braid-crown thingy from Anastasia on Broadway.
    18. Favorite wedding in a period drama? Brandon and Marianne, S&S08. :)
    19. Favorite biographical period drama? Probably Malcolm X. Denzel Washington killed that role.
    20. What historical novel will you forever recommend to everyone and anyone? "THE CHOSEN" BY CHAIM POTOK. EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ IT.

    Natalie, that was so much fun! Thank you <3

      6. Heehee. I NEVER saw that answer coming. ;D
      8. I think you're the first person who's answered "solitude" when it comes to watching period dramas. You're a true introvert, you are. :)
      9. Okay but that sounds BEAUTIFUL and I can definitely see you in such a setting. "Peace and gentle creativity." Awww. Love it. <3 (But yes, ugh, the Nazis always ruin everything.)
      10. Yesss! She's a great answer.
      14. Actually, the question did have a *note that said they can be deceased actors...but I left it out. Sorry! I should have copied the questions more accurately. You can answer again if you like. :)
      16. YOU HAVEN'T SEEN NORTH AND SOUTHHHHH. Watch it. :D

  12. Awwwwww! Stop it. Stop it. You're busting my heart.

    Seriously, Natalie, WE WOULD NEVER FORGET YOU!!! Never!! Don't ever think it. Just because Miss March is being a lazy bones and refuses to be nice and tag people...that is not a reflection on you. You're still just as much a part of the blogging world and we all love you! So now! *hugs*

    Hahaha. The "Yes, Mum" gif. That was perfect. Totally made me laugh. :D

    3. Actually, yeah. Could you tell me what movie that is? (KIDDING!)

    5. Haha. A very important life lesson indeed. I learned that one, too. :D

    6. The MOUNTIE! Hahahaha!! Sorry, but that picture totally cracked me up. (And "I understood that reference." ;))

    8. I was looking at this post with my older sister (the one who collects tea cups) and she literally squealed over that tea cup picture. Can you find those tea cups for sale anywhere? Because she wants the green one and the pink one and maybe the yellow one, too... ;)

    10. "I UNDERSTOOD THAT REFERENCE!" (Only my sister said you forgot the one word..."Sparkler, be quiet"...oh right, forget that word. :P)

    11. Very pretty! Nice choices. I've always like Cinderella's servant dress, too.

    13. Hey, I'm the same. I don't listen to soundtracks very often either. You're not alone in that. (You like the soundtrack for P&P 2005? I am shocked! Next you'll be saying you like the movie itself! Wait, do you? *prepares myself for further shock* ;))

    14. Awwwwwww!

    15. Ahem. And ahem. Let me clear this up for you. Emma 2009 is the best. No question. ;P There. Doesn't it feel good to have that decision made for you? (Haha.)

    19. Oh! Now I want to watch Chariots of Fire again.

    P.S. I understood all but the first reference. Please. Tell me what the first reference was. I must know!

    P.P.S. I enjoyed this post so much, Natalie! I'm so glad Cordy tagged you and that you felt like doing it! Because this was one of those posts that makes me feel really happy. Thank you!! :D

      10. Heehee, yes I rather thought omitting that one word would be more appropriate. :P

      15. So you CAN make decisions!!! Ha!

      PS. Oh! So that's where it's from! Thanks for satisfying my curiosity. :)

    3. 13. Ummmmm.....*cough*. Yes. I do. *looks around nervously*

      15. You must admit that your profession of an inability to make decisions is rather inconsistent sometimes. (WOW I didn't know I could use so many big words at once! :P)

    4. 15. How's that? Say that one more time. ;) (What book have you been reading? The dictionary? Hahaha!)

    5. Hahaha, sometimes I just happen to think of a crazy sentence like that and I have to say it. I guess it's all the classic novels and British movies I watch coming out of me at once. :P

  13. Hi Natalie! I love your blog.

    I’ve seen some snippets from Road to Avonlea and I keep meaning to try some more episodes! Thanks for the reminder!

    I love mini series too – so much more detail.

    NEWSIES!!!!! NEWSIES, NEWSIES, NEWSIES, NEWSIES, NEWWWWWSIES! “endless flailing and fanning” That’s right, carry the banner, girl!!

    Are those teacups YOURS? They’re gorgeous. I collect vintage teacups myself.

    The color of that dress from Poldark is to die for. Why can’t we find dresses this color in stores?? HUH?

    YOUR FAVORITE WEDDING SCENE? BUT SHE DIED!! “sighs” #why

    CHARIOTS OF FIRE – great choice! That movie is stupendeous.

    1. Hi, Allison! Awww thank you!!!

      YAY NEWSIES. Glad to hear you're a fan, too. :D

      No they're not, but aren't they beautiful?? ooh, that's such a fun collection! I have a few teacups on my bookshelf, but nothing spectacular. :)

      I AGREE. Clothing designers just need to watch more period dramas. :P

      I knoooooow. It's just so feels-y. On one hand I'm happy because they finally got married on the other hand.....*sigh*

      Thank you! I'm glad you like it too; that movie doesn't get enough love. :)

  14. I loved reading through your answers, Natalie!

    I'm totally with you on your answer to #9. How awesome would it be to live in Avonlea?!

    The color of Demelza's dress is just BEAUTIFUL! (I stopped watching Poldark too, after the first season, but yes, the scenery in that show is just gorgeous!)

    Yes, it is so hard to choose between those two adaptations of Sense and Sensibility! I chose that as my answer to this question, too.

    Demelza's hair is seriously beautiful. #hairgoals

    Again, I really enjoyed this post, Natalie (and the gifs!). ;)

    CHARIOTS OF FIRE!!!!

    I am feeling rather dull right now because I did not get any of those references... now I'm dying to know, would you tell me?

      Sowwy!

      Well, the first is a line from "Tangled", the second is a line from "Pride and Prejudice" (95), and the third is a line from Little Dorrit. :D
