Feedback poll! And Spartan whinery.

Have you ever received feedback for a fanwork (fic, art, icon, wallpaper, etc) that you've posted on LJ?
Ask your friends to take this poll! Inquiring minds (aka my mind) needs to know this stuff...for no reason.

So. I don't know how much you guys know about my love for the battle of Thermopylae, specifically Steven Pressfield's novel Gates of Fire. I know it's all non-novel and paperbacky, but I looove it. Loooove.

That said, my seester pointed me towards 300, based on the graphic novel by Frank Miller (Sin City = yay! everything else = blah,grr,argh) regarding the very same battle.

And so. Gerard Butler and David Wenham. But I watched the trailer for 300 and I'm just like...hmm. I love this battle, and I'm guessing that they're trying to aspire for a very graphic-novely-combined-with-historical FEEL, but. Hmm. I feel torn.

And kind of disappointed. I really wish they'd get Gates of Fire made into a movie instead! Like a good movie, unlike Timeline.
