:nod: My pleasure!


...I have an idea for you...

Are you familiar with the life and death of Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury? There's drama and horror and majesty in that story which your style would bring to life!

I have never heard of that. Is it a book or a real life story? I tried looking it up on amazon and came across this:

Typo, I meant "Henry and Becket immediately became friends"!

Oh, wow! You're in for a treat--yes, it's a true story...you've never seen the movies Becket and The Lion in Winter? Both excellent dramatic introductions to a very personal and colorful epoch in history!
Thomas Becket was born in 1118 in London, he became a clerk in the service of the Archbishop of Canterbury, who recommended Becket to King Henry II as a good choice for the office of Chancellor; Thomas and Becket immediately became friends, and when the old Archbishop died, Henry thought "Hey, I'll make Becket Archbishop and have both state and Church in my pocket!" Good plan, right?
WRONG. Becket was a conscientious man who knew where his obligations lay; as soon as he became Archbishop--which he accepted reluctantly--he resigned as Chancellor to avoid the inevitable conflict of interest...and when he started defending the Church against Henry's royal encroachments, the King went ballistic! Becket ended up having to flee England, he was in exile for six years before a fragile reconciliation was formed between the two former friends; but within days of Becket's return to his cathedral, the conflict resumed...I won't spoil the ending for you!;)

That sounds really interesting! I love period pieces like that, and based off a true story even better. I haven't seen those movies, but I'm gonna see if they are on netflix!
