🌟 THE PROMISE 🌟
Chapter 18 is up! As promised (😉) there wasn't a very long gap between this and the last one. I've been building up to this part of the story for a while now, and it's exciting to finally be writing it! Enjoy!

My reaction and review of "Leonardo" (2021 TV Series) Season 1 Episode 2 and Episode 3. We finally got a story about Leonardo that doesn't shy away from also exploring the legendary artist's queer sexuality.
I have to ask but which of Aidan Turner's performances is your favourite?
You know that’s an impossible question right? So I’m going to try and work my way around it. Early 2000’s Aidan - I have the biggest soft spot for, he was so eager and just starting out so I really cherish what he made in those times.
But if we’re talking performances (please let me give 3) (not in any order)
Russell in Love is blind- Aidan dedicated himself to that, he transformed his physicality, he gave attention the littlest details; his posture, what he does with his hands, then the way he talks and walks. He put so much thought into it!
Ross- there’s really nothing to say here. Ross is the first character that Aidan got to delve into and explore. He portrayed that so extremely well which is something we all know.
Leonardo - not saying anything for spoiler purposes. But once again, Aidan transforms and yet, he maintains that side of him that’s ‘just Aidan’
Using this gif again because I really went off the rails
That’s so great about Matilda De Angelis :) so happy for you and so well deserved. Thank you for your edits!
Thanks so much🥺🥺🤍. Means a lot to me.
I think I’ve mentioned it before but the reason I make edits is to make ppl feel. I like that whole idea. Because you’re moved by a series or a film, and then I like to encapsulate that feeling of how it made you feel and embody it in an edit. And that to me is the basis of an art form. I originally had a hard time believing that editing was an art form. I mean it’s difficult because you think of great artists and their paintings and sketches and it was such real talent and dedication.
You kind of question yourself like- “ok but can I consider this as art because really, what am I doing?” But I think when it comes down to it, Art is about self expression and it’s there to move you. If it does that job, if it makes you feel, then surely it counts, without comparing it to other forms?
I think there’s a lot of that “imposter syndrome” about - where you question whether it matters. But at the end of the day I’m not doing anything for money or to be “great” LOL. Its just about storytelling and feeling. And her recognising it was less “omg an actor saw it” and more of “wow the woman who brought Caterina to life was moved by it”
You guys, Matilda shared my edit. It’s just so surreal. The character who’s journey you’re in love with- the person who brang that character to life for months, they get to see what you’ve created about them. No one knows Caterina’s character as much as Matilda herself so that’s just so insane.
