I wish you a happy birthday...

Yep, it's that time again;

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, IOAN!

I hope you have a good day celebrating (presumably) with your family, that everything's going well for you and your loved ones, and that new job opportunities await you in the new year. I've read enough about the movie that I won't be seeing you in Ava (and by the way, the reviewer who described you as "a handsome actor who's often cast as the slightly dull heroic lead" is very decidedly only half-right) and while I'm definitely interested in Harrow, I'm a) not sure where I can watch it, and b) don't want to start a show that's currently ongoing, in case the ending is dissatisfactory and/or ends abruptly due to being cancelled. Forever was a delight, but the ending did burn me.

Anyway, my point is that while I'm not watching most of your recent work, I'm hoping that'll have a reason to change in the near-ish future. And while that same reviewer from above did say that you "seem[ed] to relish being free of the burden of nobility", I have to admit that I wouldn't object to seeing you take up that burden once more. I've always loved knights in shining armor (though I'm more than happy to see that armor a bit tarnished) more than bad boys.

Yuletide Letter

Dear Yuletide Writer,

First, I apologize in advance if I do this wrong. It’s my first time participating in Yuletide, and while I’ve looked into it, I can’t guarantee I’m doing it right. Hopefully I don’t come across as too demanding or over the top.

Thank you in advance for writing for me! I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

And it all comes round again...

Once again, this journal's been so dead that my last post was a year ago, but that doesn't stop me from logging in to say

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, IOAN!!!

Sadly, I haven't seen much of anything new from you. You have been doing some TV work, but in a way that makes it difficult for me to watch (though at least it sounds like Harrow's doing well, so congrats on that). The Professor and the Madman was finally released, but none of the reviews mention you by name, suggesting you're not in it all that long (plus, it was orignally $7 to rent, which was far too high). And your latest project has potential, but nothing's really been released about it. On the bright side, I discovered that voicework you did for Diablo III, and since another actor I like is involved in that, it's the impetus I need to get the game...eventually. And at least other people are watching and enjoying your work, which is really all you can ask for.

So here's hoping you had a pleasant day, and that things continue to go well for you and your family. I look forward to seeing any future projects from you, and especially to playing Diablo III. Getting to play a character you voiced? Sounds like a win to me.

I have duties to attend to, and this is one of them

I am well aware that I haven't posted in this journal for exactly a year. This is due to a combination of my corner of Livejournal being pretty quiet and a lot of stuff going on in real life. However, there are two things I'll always log in to post about, and this is one of them. So with that...

Happy 45th Birthday, Ioan!

Unfortunately, most of the projects you've been working on recently have either not come out or been difficult for me to see, so I haven't seen as much of you as I'd like. Still, I hope work's been going well, your family has been treating you nicely (especially today), and that the various sports teams you follow have been doing all right. Here's hoping that you get a role in the near future that either wins you critical acclaim or is hugely popular. If not, though, I still look forward to seeing what you get up to. Though is it too much to hope that your upcoming roles will involve you being a) clean-shaven and b) in a suit of some kind...?

Not much of a present, but...

I know things have been quiet on this journal; I've been busy with other things and just haven't had anything worth posting here. However, I've got a tradition around these parts, and I'm not about to stop now...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, IOAN!

I'm not exactly sure where you are at the moment (IMDB suggests you might be filming something in Australia), but I hope that you have a wonderful day wherever you are! May you get roles you enjoy and may your family life be relatively peaceful.

Fic: Legacy

This was a joint plot bunny effort. One part came from the following_sea Shifting Sands challenge, which basically said I could do whatever I wanted as long as it somehow related to the theme of shifting sands. The second came from a prompt of captainzarina's over at disney_kink, which was a request for a relationship between Captain Amelia and Alice from the live-action Through the Looking Glass. Being a Captain Amelia fan, I figured I could try my hand at something that was close to both prompts. Given that I don't think it quite meets the qualifications of either, though (I'm going with the more nebulous "shifting sands of time" meaning), I'm posting it here rather than on either of the communities. Hope you enjoy it anyway, though!

Title: Legacy.
Rating: PG just in case.
Summary: The Old Guard Meets Young Blood.

Poetry Drabbles: The Return

I've got one last batch of responses to the Poetry Meme that was floating around LJ last year. I really enjoyed doing it, but after I got through all of my favorite characters, I figured I had to draw a line somewhere so I could focus on other projects. Hope there's something in here you like!

Just Doing My Duty

I know I haven't posted here in about a year. Real life has been hectic, and while I've been keeping tabs on things here on the internet, I generally haven't had the time or energy to post anything. Besides, I haven't really had a lot worth posting, anyway.

That all being said, it's October 6th, and we all know what I do every October 6th...


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, IOAN!!!!!!!


Things seem to be going well for you, what with the work on UnReal and evidence, however slight, that that movie that's been on your IMDb page since 2013 may finally get released in the near future. I hope things continue to go smoothly, and that another project comes along that gets you a lot of positive attention. I certainly wouldn't say no to another period piece...

At any rate, I hope you have a lovely day either on set or with your family, wherever you happen to be at the moment. Take care of yourself and see you at the movies!

You Know The Drill...

As usual, I'm making a post today to say...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, IOAN!!!

You are now the answer to Life, The Universe, and Everything...and actually, that's disturbingly accurate for me, at least.

I hope you have a nice day with your family, whether you choose to stay in or go out. And based off what I've heard, you can treat the Wales Rugby win as an early birthday present, which is a nice bonus.

(And as an amusing bonus for me, the website Etiquette Hell made this post today. I'm betting it's just a coincidence, but I'd like to think that the site runner may be a bit of a Ioanite herself...)
