to:

* SharpDressedManLargeHam: Betterthanstrawberry is remarkably soft-spoken for a 17 years-old as long as you keep him a reasonable distance away from a microphone.
* NiceHat: Has quite a collection.
* RummageSaleReject: Regularly dressed in an olive drab M65, nondescript flatcap, camo trousers and sling bag.

[[folder:Things to inquire about]]
Inspired by a similar section on [[@/StolenByFaeries a lovely, lovely person's]] page - please do put your recommendations here! However, I tend to be limited by time and financial constraints, so please do excuse the inevitable lateness.
* ''TheDresdenFiles'': Seems to be neat UrbanFantasy. ^_^
* GKChesterton: Still need to finish ''FatherBrown'' for now.
* ''HouseOfLeaves'': Have to admit that I find [[PaintingTheFourthWall narratives which take utmost advantage of the medium]] quite appealing.
* ''TheLaundrySeries'': Quite amiably combines two of the subjects I am rather interested in from what I know.
* ''WatershipDown'': It has been widely agreed upon that bunnies are, in fact, interesting. And also bloodthirsty, which is more or less the same thing.
* ''{{We}}'': The ''NineteenEightyFour'' before ''NineteenEightyFour'', hence the interest.
* ''RedStormRising'':
* ''Tae Guk Gi'': Neat film from what I've gathered, and the KoreanWar has been quite underrepresented in media.
* ''TheWindThatShakesTheBarley'': The promotional media do show quite a bit of pretty scenery.
* ''TheTrollHunter'': Please do click the link for the reasons.
* ''TheLongShips'': [[MoorishSpain Al-Andalus!]]
* ''SoonIWillBeInvincible''
* ''ExoticGothic''
* ''ThePhoenixRequiem''
* ''{{Blindsight}}''
