Awesome vid. I'm so going to have to watch this aren't I? I love Rossetti, I love The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and I love Victorian Pr0n. Plus its Mitchell/Daisy!!! I've been putting it off because it looks too tempting...you know when you see a delicious chocolate cake on the kitchen counter and you just want...to devour it? Yeah. I'm trying not to stan Aidan too hard, because I fall for dark Irish men too easily. I'm going to have to watch this aren't I?

Thank you!

You're really, really going to have to watch this. Leave your historical... anything, really... at the door and just buckle up for the ride. It's about on a par with The Tudors for both (a)historicity and raciness, but so, so much fun.

I saw it after S1 of BH but before S2, so it's the first I saw of Amy Manson, and I loved her to bits. Lizzie had very much her own dry sense of humor -- it's even touched on in the dialogue at one point, when Annie Miller doubts she has one at all -- and this captures that, and much else about her, very well indeed.

lol I don't mind it not being exactly historically accurate, as long as its fun, and sexy, and has lots of Aidan! I think Amy Manson's so pretty, so I'm happy to see her in something else, especially with Aidan...they had sexy sexy chemistry! I just wanted to save it until a rainy day, because I just know I'm going to enjoy it a little too much.

That said I've already added it to my Netflix queue.XD

They do work really well together, and had very different great chemistry in both cases.

I'm sure you've done something to deserve dessert. ;->

lol I feel rather naughty just thinking about it! But Aidan looks so fantastic, although did he really need hair extensions? His hair wasn't...eccentric enough for them?XD

It probably is now (I think they're encouraging him to go ever longer in an attempt to distract from his hairline being not at all frozen like a photograph, poor guy; late 20s suck with those genes!), but DR was made between S1 and S2, and he wasn't quite there yet. Gabriel's hair was a frequent source of comment among his friends.

GASP don't say that, lol!! Luckily for him he'd look awesome with really short hair...if that ever needs to happen.:(

Writing's on the wall. Look at S1 and then the set photos coming out lately.

I notice mostly because it's very similar to my hubby's hair, which went pretty much the same way at the same age. It slowed way down all through his 30s, tho, so maybe Aidan will have the same luck. :-)

I'd be curious to see him with really short hair. It'd be interesting on his face shape.

Well in Mitchell's prequel he's meant to look as though he has short hair...and I thought he looked rather distinguished! I hope it slows down, his hair looks so fluffy and soft, I don't want him to lose it, awww!

I did like that look, but I'd be curious to see him with better lighting (and not having to hide where they had it pinned in back)!

I love how he has to move sideways to slide into the back seat so as not to reveal that his hair is just pinned back lol! It was a sexy slide though. OTT but I love that prequel, it shows a Mitchell I wish we could see more of, and I love how the girl's like "You look foreign, no offense" because my friends are convinced he's like Arabic or something, and not really Irish. I'm just like *headsdesk*

I'm having the same computer issues tonight as last night, so I will pop back to enjoy this in the morning.

Than all the same comments apply! :-) Thank you for sharing it with us. I hope that the Desperate Romantics/Real PRB communities receive it well.

Thank you! I'm going to do a little recon later for likely places to post it.
