mix: Bad Reputation!  

Bad Reputation!
A picspam and crack!mix for the original book 'verse of 'Howl's Moving Castle', by Diana Wynne Jones.

Howl said, ‘I think we ought to live happily ever after,’ and she thought he meant it. Sophie knew that living happily ever after with Howl would be a good deal more eventful than any story made it sound, though she was determined to try. ‘It should be hair-raising,’ added Howl.

‘And you’ll exploit me,’ Sophie said.

[Note: For those of you who have seen the beautiful movie by Hayao Miyazaki but not read the book, the literary relationship between Sophie and Howl is much more gleefully antagonistic, with the undercurrent of a true and abiding love deeply buried beneath their mutual teasing, heckling, fighting and general all-around mischief. Also, Howl is even more of a prima donna rockstar.]

Yay, a valid reason to use book icon!

I love this! I love the movie, but love the book even more, and a big part of it is Howl and Sophie's relationship. Thanks for sharing!

PS: Is that Lily Cole as Sophie?

OMG Your icon is amazing. Of course Tequila would be Howl's favourite drink! *g*

Glad you liked it. Yup, Lily Cole as Sophie, J.Depp as Howl.
