”- Be careful, my boy, or you’ll end up with no job and a broken heart.

- I don’t know what you mean.”

Give your dream genderbent cast to your favourite movie (*or show!). (Obviously I mean only for the 4/5 main protagonists.) Asked by ablogwithaview

I choose Sir Kenneth Branagh’s Hamlet since it is one of my favourite movie- and work by William Shakespeare. And here’s the list of actors I’d cast. Gender-bent, of course.

Dramatis Personae

  • Hamlet, Princess of Denmark — Natalie Dormer
  • Queen Hamlet, the ghost — Dame Judi Dench
  • Queen Claudia (Claudius) — Joely Richardson
  • Prince Consort Geralt (Gertrude) — Paul McGann
  • Ophir (Ophelia) — Max Irons

Vanity Fair: A Modern Tale.

Panta rhei. Everything flows. And when our self is all that remains, vainglory becomes the way to build memories. Scandals- created, read, and scattered on cheap papers of cheap magazines- are the fruits of spiteful ambitions. Egoism and pride are the pillars of success. Vanity is a mirror held by the devil, and society an inferno of beautiful faces.

- I have often seen you at court and thought how handsome you are. There is a melancholy aspect to your looks that I find intriguing. But it’s probably only mental vacancy.

- I hope not.

"I could have loved a man like you." Her eyes are sad but a smile graces her beautiful face. She has flowers in her hair, a simple coiffure for a woman who will have to work from now on.

Athos woke up, startled. Her words won’t go away, they haunt him in his sleep at night and crawl into his consciousness in the middle of the day. Unwanted memories. Was it not Aramis the one with a penchant for women? Now, whenever Athos is not consumed by thoughts of revenge for her, his mind only conjures images of la Comtesse de Larroque. No, not la Comtesse, Ninon. Another trait they share: to the word, la Comtesse de Larroque was dead, and le Comte de la Fére did not exist anymore. Two people running away from their past. They had both been living an idyll, a life too good to be true. And then, a bit by choice and a bit because there is no other choice for people like them, they are banished from the places that had brought them both happiness and agony. A bedroom, a library. So many ghosts that still needed to be chased away. 

Athos got up from his pallet, stretched his muscles, and stared at the small mirror on the wall in front of him. The man staring back had bloodshot eyes, and a beard longer than he remembered. A single white hair on his left temple had appeared. The life of a musketeer might make you feel younger but it does not stop the clock from ticking, old man. So much time spent drinking, so much self recrimination for what might have been if only he… If only.

Would Ninon be another ‘if only’ in his life? If only she had not been his life at all. If only he had made himself see behind the rebellious side of Ninon, if only that had not reminded him of her. But, then, what would he have done? Followed her? Lived in sin with her? And do what? What life was there for him if not that of a musketeer?

But man does not live forever. And a life regretting does not bring peace.   

Athos was not certain what had made him decide to go look for her, he only knew nothing else made sense. He wanted to see her, to see if the spark between them had not been a dream after all.

Finding her will not be easy, of course.

"I will not be silenced. But, I promise, you will not hear my voice."  

And a powerful voice can always be heard, no matter how softly it whispers.

(to be continued hopefully)


Comments and suggestions are welcomed. If I have made any mistake, feel free to message me and point it out, I will correct them as soon as possible. Whenever you see ‘she’ or ‘her’ in italics I am referring to Milady de Winter- Athos cannot find it in himself to speak or think her name.

You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight and a half years ago. Dare not say that a man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant.

Anne Elliot and Frederick Wentworth from Persuasion (Jane Austen)

"Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art— 
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors—
No—yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow’d upon my fair love’s ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever—or else swoon to death.”

(John Keats)

"All Sicilian expression, even the most violent, is really a wish for death. Our sensuality, wish for oblivion. Our knifings and shootings, a hankering after extinction. Our laziness, our spiced and drugged sherbets, a desire for voluptuous immobility, that is… for death again."

The Leopard (Luchino Visconti, 1963)
