Pierrefonds trip [Day 2]  
Something like a hour before closing time at the castle, I thought I would be writing in this very report : "It'll be shorter as nothing amazing happened before our eyes - indeed, the filming was made inside today." This would have been one of the biggest understatements of my life.

Apparently, somebody decided to make me the luckiest bastard ever. I'm so thankful for it.Collapse )

Picture policy No pictures which spoil too much about the story. Should not be taken as a "non spoiler" guarantee at all, though (since even the presence of some actors may spoil).

Ah ah ah, I surely do remember that I whispered something like "Oh god" when I realized, and then totally didn't understand his first sentence (the word "poster" and the questioning intonation saved me here). But then it went surprisingly very well! Well, I guess that the fact that Colin was asking questions helped me there ;) (But on the other hand, I totally lost my english in front of Bradley ah ah XD)

Aww!
Hiya, I’m here via gealach_ros. That was beautiful. I got teary eyed reading your story! Maybe your picture will be on a secrets and magic episode. Thank you for sharing.

Re: Aww!
Oh I hadn't thought of that at all! That would be so incredible (once agai) ah ah. You're very welcome, I'm glad the emotion passed through ♥

Wonderful report and fantastic pictures; thanks so much for sharing =)

You're welcome! :)

And so your patience is rewarded! I think the artwork is so beautiful and you did the right thing to ask Miss Redhead and it all worked out so well in the end. You have a day you will never forget and you very much deserve it. Thanks again for these pictures and the report of how the boys are working.
alhia on April 17th, 2010 04:43 pm (UTC)
Thank you for the artwork! Yes, I'm so glad souzoukyuuketsu went to ask her what was the best thing to do, I'm frankly not sure I would have dared to ask her myself if she could take my gift. Thank you. And you are very welcome.

Wow. thank you so much for all the detail. it's a great report, and the photos are awesome (thank your mom for the knight photos^^)

Colin, Bradley and Redhead are really awesome, and especially redhead, that she first of all remembered who the drawing was from and then took the time to inform Colin and Bradley and you. The whole staff sound so amazing.
this was really great to read. thank you.
alhia on April 17th, 2010 04:45 pm (UTC)
Thanks forwarded to mum! ;)
Yes, she was clearly amazing. From remembering me to making this possible, to informing me later on... I think I'm becoming infatuated with this staff, from what I can see. I love seeing them working. It's so interesting!
You're very welcome.

Incroyable! C'est juste excellent!
Quelle chance et contente de voir que ton dessin ait été aussi bien accueilli, c'est vraiment cool! Ils ont tous l'air tellement sympa, accessibles et d'avoir les pieds sur terre! :)
(et perso, si j'avais eu Colin en face de moi comme ça, je pense que je me serais liquéfiée! lol Et pis, il a l'air tellement sympa!)
Merci de nous avoir fait partager tout ça! Ça fait plaisir à lire! ^^
alhia on April 17th, 2010 04:54 pm (UTC)
C'est exactement ça. Ça me tue qu'ils soient accessibles alors qu'ils bossent, tout en gardant la tête froide et en restant concentrés sur le boulot, et puis le fait qu'ils puissent continuer à être touchés par des cadeaux alors que bon, ça doit pas être le premier qu'ils voient... J'adore ce staff !
(J'avoue que une des choses qui m'a surement le plus tué a été la sincérité frappante de Colin. Je trouve déjà énorme qu'ils aient pris le temps de me remercier, alors ça, ça m'a touchée à mort! Il a l'air vraiment... oui, sympa quoi, c'est fou qu'il arrive à garder ça avec toutes ces années !)
De rien, je t'en prie, ça me fait plaisir que ça fasse plaisir ! :)

Hahaha la chance!! T'aurais du etre trop contente ;) Gros bisous!
alhia on April 17th, 2010 04:57 pm (UTC)
C'en était presque insolent, cette chance XD Je suis amoureuse de la série depuis quoi, quatre mois ? Je débarque deux jours... Et ça quoi. Ca *____*;; Oh oui mon dieu que j'ai été (et que je suis) contente XDD;;
J'espère que tu vas bien, bisous à toi aussi ! <3

Here again from gealach_ros. Many, many thanks for the excellent report and the gorgeous photos. It's really lovely seeing how much is going on and how fascinating it all is. I was so thrilled to read that you got a lovely acknowledgment from both Colin and Bradley for your beautiful drawing. And how nice of "Miss Redhead" :) Many thanks for sharing all of this.
alhia on April 18th, 2010 04:08 pm (UTC)
You're welcome! It is all so fascinating, much more than I even expected it to be!

Instead of replying to your comment reply in the other entry I thought I'd come right here ;)

And of course this report kept me up last night as well, but not as long as the other one and even if it had, this was so worth it! ♥

It's so amazing and awesome and a lot of other adjectives I can't think of right now how everything worked out for you and that they came to you to thank you for the drawing and everything, I'm so, so happy for you! :D

Thank you for another great report! ^__^
alhia on April 18th, 2010 04:11 pm (UTC)
*laughs at her desk* Well, at least I'm glad it didn't take as much as time to read as the other!

I share your lack of adjectives to describe all of this =D Thank you!
lamardeuse: Bradley/Colinlamardeuse on April 15th, 2010 11:06 am (UTC)
Eeee, I'm so glad you had such lovely interactions with Colin and Bradley! Good for you, and thanks for sharing your experiences! :)

You're welcome! =)

Salut!^^

Tout d'abord, je me représente officiellement ;)
J'étais la fille avec les grosses cernes et le manteau violet!:p
(Celle qui a bien tenté de faire plus ample connaissance avec Marcel, mais qui n'y est point parvenue xD C'est un grand timide, que veux-tu xD Et qui du coup s'est rabattue sur le mouton...le bouc...la biquette... la moutonne... Va savoir xD)

Merci pour ce post, tes photos sont vraiment superbes mais pas autant que ton joli sourire hier! ;))
Tu passeras le bonjour à ton adorable et courage maman!

Bisous et bonne continuation!♥
Et bien sûr, ce fut un plaisir d'avoir eu la chance de te recontrer et de papoter avec toi!
Au plaisir de te lire et de te revoir bientôt!
alhia on April 19th, 2010 04:39 pm (UTC)
Hello!

Excuse-moi pour le retard de ma réponse, je me battais désespérément avec mes devoirs pour réussir à me remettre à bosser, et évidemment, pour l'instant le succès de l'opération n'est que très mitigé. Donc on verra les devoirs plus tard, et je m'autorise enfin à vous répondre !

Oh, tu les avais bien cachées tes cernes, très sincèrement je n'avais pas remarqué ! Le fard à paupières violet et tout shiny a du me distraire =)
(Alors on l'appelle vraiment Marcel du coup ? Ca va être pratique tiens XD )

Oh mon dieu, en parlant de sourire, maman avait pris une photo juste après que Bradley soit passé - donc on le voit de dos, et ce qu'on voit surtout, c'est la petite Alhia avec un sourire à la con de profile ah ah XD
Maman te fait passer le bonjour en retour ! Elle me dit aussi de te dire qu'elle a été épatée par ton niveau d'anglais !

De même, de même ! Ce fut une excellente surprise de tous vous voir, et ce fut un plaisir! A la prochaine, donc! ;)
PS : oh, et maintenant que je vois ton avatar, je me dis que j'ai déjà du lire une de tes fics, en fait, ah ah =)

Oh, fucking hell! YOU LUCKY GIRL!! :D I don't even know you, but I'm so happy for you! That they thanked you personally. So sweet! ^_^

Thank you again for you're amazing reports! :)
alhia on April 18th, 2010 04:18 pm (UTC)
So sweet indeed! ♥ And again, you're welcome =)
Cheryl Dyson: Bradley Squeedysonrules on April 15th, 2010 03:42 pm (UTC)
Wow, this is stunning! Thank you so much for posting this! I never really paid attention to how beautiful the castle and surroundings are. It's so easy to focus on the acting and the show and disregard the setting. It was lovely to see it for its own sake.

Thank you again! :D
alhia on April 18th, 2010 04:26 pm (UTC)
And my photos really don't do the surroundings justice, on top of that. They flatten everything, while it's all so grandiose and impressive! But I'm glad this report allowed to shed some light on the castle, it really deserves it!

Again, you're welcome! =)

(And I'm sorry for the weird answer you may have been notified for, such as "A table - I mean it" : that was my father trying to be funny, telling me it was time for dinner (= "A table") through my LJ, but failing miserably at it since he replied to your message and not to the whole post ;p )
