Anonymous asked: I'm not the anon who asked you tag stuff, but seeing the way you react to a simple suggestion from one has put me off. It's great that you want to run your blog the way you like, and instead of criticising you I'm just going to do the decent thing and unfollow because it's not my personal preference. I would suggest to all others hiding behind anon to just do the same rather...
Anonymous asked: Aw, BC leaving NOLA? That's a real shame... I hoped to see him this week; let's cross our fingers! Keep us updated? <333
camflougedzut asked: According to a post in the BC tag, his last day of recording TYAS was today. His last day in New Orleans could be tomorrow, or maybe the next day, if he decides to leave immediately.
Anonymous asked: When is Benedict Cumberbatch's last day in New Orleans?
Anonymous asked: I love your blog and it sucks that you got crap for posting something you enjoy. I don't know what that anon's problem was. You tagged everything properly so they could have used tumblr saviour if they felt that strongly about not being spoiled (Or, god forbid!, unfollowed you...). Jeez! Talk about a brat! I happen to enjoy your posts, including the "Twelve Years A Slave"...
anindoorkitty asked: Sounds like you're having some shit from some folks about your 12 Years a Slave posts. I'm such a spoiler whore, I can never understand people who don't want all the info! I've been totally loving your posts about your experiences observing the filming. If I could, I'd be right up in the middle of that too. Please don't let anyone make you feel bad about it. This...
cumbercubs asked: I just want to say I LOVE your blog and your twitter feed and hope you are not going to change a single thing, just because of some people around who want to make themselves important. If your information is tagged accordingly, then there is no reason to discuss spoilers, as you have not given anything away as spoiler that is not known! If people don't know what TYAS is about, shall go and...
Anonymous asked: Have been enjoying your comments about the movie and all others.I'm one of those "older" ones too and I think we've just got some self-absorbed young one. The book is on the internet so anyone can read it. Lots of people have read Gone With The Wind so they had to know something about the movie before they saw it. How about Previews to movies. I think maybe some people...

liathgorn asked: I jusy wanted to say - I LOVE your TYaS stuff. If I had the opportunity to visit a set and observe I would TOTALLY blog the hell about my experience! Anyone who disagrees can hit the unfollow!
My sarcasm knows no bounds. I guess y’all are getting that now?
*giggling* One of the actors in the film follows me and just RTed me as saying “Lord, I forgot I spoiled everyone that in Twelve Years a Slave, there are slaves. One for 12 years. OMG”
cumberknit asked: Hey there - Please don't stop posting! I love your blog and jealously read your tidbits about 12YAS filming. Screw anon trolls!
Anonymous asked: Hi! I don't have a tumblr myself but I personally have really enjoyed reading your accounts of what happened on set. I'm sorry about all the drama and aggro-don't let it get ya down. I was happy to read your blog and hope you keep it.
jfransherlocked asked: Great answer to the anon. Guess there are idiots on tumblr and twitter both who bitch at someone and try to change them rather than simply choose to unfollow. I wouldn't label anything you've posted as an actual spoiler anyway! I'm sure you know most followers are very very thankful for your glimpses of filming.
my3son asked: Please. Please. Don't be discouraged by snippy, frivolous dissenters who won't even use their names. I can't tell you how much brighter my day is to see and marvel at the beautiful pics you have shared with us--and your great observations. This whole discussion reminds me of the long standing argument that my seven year old and I have about cookies. I'm to blame for him eating...
Anonymous asked: Hi again - I asked about the cute/different thingy. I'm sorry some are giving you a hard time, but know that lots of us love reading your blog and tweets and appreciate it greatly! I would love it, if you would answer my question, but I also understand if you're too upset to do so. Love and hugs. PS: I'm anon because I don't have tumblr... yet.
dreadpiratewestley asked: I love you. Post whatever you want on YOUR blog. Anyone who doesn't like it can avail themselves of the unfollow bottom, whilst simultaneously SHOVING IT UP THEIR ASS.
SPOILER. Louisiana has Swamps
Gosh, one of the actors in Twelve Years a Slave is posting lovely views of the swamp where they shoot today. Someone please go stop him. He obviously doesn’t understand that disclosing what a swamp looks like spoils the entire film and he is pissing off fans by doing it. Or is the spoiler that there are swamps in Louisiana? Whatever. I hate to not even RT him, as they like that, but he must...
potatoesaresex asked: Anon is probably just jealous because you got to see a lot more than most of us. I for one am really excited for you and I'm glad you got to see it all! If you leave I will have no one to live vicariously through! I genuinely appreciate your posts it keeps me up to date on what Benedict is doing while he's here in the city. I troll the TYAS tags just to find your posts :D
deathandfairytales asked: This whole thing is nuts, and got blown way out of proportion. I'm loving the tidbits you post about TYAS, and frankly, hearing that BC rode a damn horse only adds to the excitement for the film. It's hardly a spoiler. jfc, some people need to get over themselves.
Anonymous asked: Wait. They rode horses in the 1800's. I was not aware. History class is just going to be so boring because now I know what's coming.
Anonymous asked: Hi, I read your tweets, and I do agree (an 'official') journalist myself - everyone thinks they can easily do that job. Write a bit and that's that. Erm, yes, if only it'd ensure quality. Anyway, also agree with you on the spoiler discussion. It was a bit silly: him riding a horse (which you tweeted about days ago already of course!) is supposed to be a spoiler now? Jeez. The...
Anonymous asked: maybe just to compromise with the anon, you could additionally tag your tyas stuff as "tyas movie spoilers" or something. that way we still get to enjoy your awesome stuff, but they can blacklist that tag if they're concerned about getting spoiled.
WAR HORSE SPOILER
There is a horse in War Horse. BC rides it. And so, for all those who’ve posted anything about BC riding a horse in War Horse, I apologize to all of you who have not yet seen it.

beyondthecheapedcoloredlights asked: Sorry if I keep liking your post on the set of 12 Years A Slave, it's just so interesting to see the behind the scenes & how that part is going to transform into a movie. It looks like we're set back in time rather in 2012, especially the two pictures with a dirt road between the buildings and the way characters are dressed. Forgive me to ramble on, I'm bit of a history nerd....

jfransherlocked asked: Oh yay!! He's not wrapped! You'll get to see him, I'm sure. Good luck!
jfransherlocked asked: He wouldn't have been as set as Ford is never in NY in the book. Do you happen to know if he's all done then since they've moved on from his plantation??
