Valentine's Day Period Drama Party: Kick-off post & Tag!

*scattering confetti and rosebuds hither and yon*

Come one, come all, our romantic period drama party has officially arrived!

For more details/buttons see the announcement post here, but again, this is for basically anything you can dream up connected to our theme -- film reviews, character studies, general enthusiastic effusions, etc. etc... ;)  Also, if you've only seen a handful of period dramas, don't be shy! We'd still love to have your thoughts and insight. :) 

More games coming here in the next few days and right now our tag is below for your copying pleasure. 

***After posting anything be sure to come back here and leave a link in the comments section on this kick-off post so everyone else can see it.*** I'll also be posting a round-up with everyone's links at the end of the festivities.

Now let us to the party! Hooray, I can't wait to see what y'all come up with!

Valentine's Day Period Drama Tag

1) Your current three (or up to five!) favorite period dramas?

2) What would you recommend to someone who’s never seen a period drama as a starter?

3) A favorite couple that wouldn’t be included in answer #1 (cause I’m figuring those are already top favorites ;)) and/or a favorite secondary character romance? 

4) What do you consider foundational qualities for a healthy romance? 

5) Worst villain/antagonist?

6) A favorite proposal scene?

7) Favorite period drama characters based on a real life couple?

8) Any classic b/w period dramas you like?

9) Most mature romance in a period drama? (mature as in age and/or characters who are consciously and wisely ripened by life experience, etc.)

10) Most excruciatingly long, slow burn romance in a period drama?

11) A story that has multiple film adaptations where you love more than one of them?

12) A book you think needs to be made into a film (or a new adaptation)?

  8. I posted my answers to the tag. Because I only allow myself to do so many posts a month I combined it with the tag for Cordy's Lovely Blog Party. Is that okay? Because if not I am totally flexible and can make them into two different posts!

  16. I wrote for Raoul and Christine from the 2004 The Phantom of the Opera film. Hard to believe it's been so long. They're an innocent couple, full of goodness, light and hope, so even though the story is a little dark, the fact that their loves wins out in the end makes it all worthwhile.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and look forward to further confabulation. Please just be courteous to one and all. Oh, and I love thoughts on old posts, so comment away!

(Also of late -- what with time being finite, and Life Happening + managing multiple blogs and computer issues and all that -- I sometimes have to alternate between creating new content and replying to comments, but rest assured I'm thrilled to hear from each and every one of you and always hope to reply thoughtfully in full ASAP. <3)
