I just wrote for five hours straight, so I'm taking a break of a few minutes before I get on that.
I hope to have it completed by Thanksgiving. Whenever it's finished, I'll start a poll. To keep the fandom secret, I'll likely have two fandoms in the poll, and those that are able to do that particular fandom I'll contact.
After the 64th kid left, I turned out the lights and went off to watch Return of the Vampire on Get TV. It was 8:30 PM, and we were pretty much out of candy. The temperature had fallen down to 40 degrees before anyone arrived, with the wind at 25 mph, so I'm amazed anyone came at all.
There were no sightings of Michael Meyers, Jason Vorhees or Freddy Krueger walking down the road in a line (with a fairy princess with butcher knife behind them) this year. Instead, it was mostly kids (and many teens) bundled up. Aside from an undead nun, a scarecrow wearing a Scream mask painted brown, a court jester skeleton, and a glow-in-the-dark skeleton pirate. Oh, and the kid dressed as pepperoni pizza, and one teenage Red Riding Hood.
I’ll get started on the rewatch tomorrow, and take notes on the scene in question that is specified in their Dear Yuletide letter.
A few Yuletide letters persuaded me to try out (and likely offer to write, unless I change my mind) a few movies I hadn't seen before now--like Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters, and The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec.
*This works for Yuletide, as well as for Halloween.
I just know that I’ll either request or offer Peter Capaldi's Eyebrows Anthropomorfic. I can’t help it, it seems like it would be so bizarre.
Several movies and tv shows were nominated that I had plans to watch somewhere down the line. I’ll see if I’m able to watch a few between now, and October 19th-October 25th, when sign-ups start and end.
✔ Legend (1985)
So far, unless something else comes along during the month, I plan to go to see Halloween (1978) on October 25th at 4:30 PM, and Psycho (1960) on October 26th at 2 PM. After doing a lot of reading up on it, I opted to avoid The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, playing this Sunday. It’s just not one for me.
So if the people who voted for Sleepy Hollow could please go back to the poll and change their vote to either Murder By Death or Bewitched, that would be wonderful. The two of them are currently at 3 votes each. I’ll extend the poll to go until Friday morning, rather than tomorrow, as a result.
Also, I’m adding two more polls here, depending on which fandom you voted for. Or even if you didn’t vote for it, but still want to see a particular character receive a nomination, go for it.
For Murder By Death:
I was merely waffling on Murder By Death (1976), and Bewitched (the tv series). However, I’ve also learned that Sleepy Hollow is still eligible for Yuletide. So, here's a poll.
Pick One--Or Two, If You Can't Decide Either
Bewitched (TV Series)
Murder By Death (1976)
Sleepy Hollow (Fox series)
And for those on the Livejournal side and unable to vote in the poll, please post your answer in the comments. I’ll factor it in when I close the poll on Thursday afternoon.
