So crazy right now.
I didn’t even know there were that many of you out there who liked both Downton Abbey and Beyonce with equal ferocity. You are all LE AWESOME.
Aside from my thanks to you all, a minor newsflash: I believe the submissions module on this blog was messed up for a bit (although the ask/comments one has been just fine - WEIRD), so if you happened to submit anything (requests, ideas, screencaps, porn, whatever) in the past couple of weeks, I am truly sorry, because I probably did not receive it. I know this because of the following exchange I had with a good friend (paraphrase):
friend: OMG BRILLS can I send you ideas for your Downton Beyonce blog whenever I come up with them
me: sure! you can even submit them DIRECTLY ON THE TUMBLR SITE
friend: that’s dumb, wtf is wrong with our good friend gchat
me: EMBRACE THE SOCIAL NETWORK (which, I should note, a) does not really make sense, probably because b) outside of Tumblr, I’m a bit of a Luddite. I’m not actually 100% sure I know how to use Twitter properly - I only reluctantly joined it because I decided I really needed to follow Matthew Crawley’s Hair. True Life: Downton Addict.)
(a week passes)
friend: um do you not love me
me: certainly I do, darling
friend: THEN WHY DIDN’T YOU EVEN RESPOND TO MY SUGGESTIONS FOR YER BLOG OUR FRIENDSHIP IZ RUINS
me: WHAT suggestions
friend: THE ONES I SUBMITTD DIRECTLY TO THE SITE PER YOUR REQUEST
me: YOU SENT NOTHING I HAVE NOTHING
friend: DON’T GO ALL WHITNEY HOUSTON ON ME NOW
…and so on and so forth. Basically, to settle the squabble, I had to send myself a test submission and indeed, it did not show up in my little Tumblr inbox. Long story short, eventually (magically), my Tumblr inbox did revive itself. Sorry for the complication, and know that submissions are always welcome! I’ll try my best to intersperse them with my regular posts in a reasonably spread out fashion. And again, thanks so much for all the internet love!
Anonymous asked: This is amazing, you are epic. Have all my internets. :3
Danke, you darling anonymous person! I’m not sure what kind of catastrophe would happen if the internets turned into Downton Abbey + Beyonce all the time always, but I have a feeling I would like it tremendously. GREAT IDEA.
