I want to learn something new every day and I try to do that. For example, today I learned a word: anatidaephobia. It’s a natural fear of something — you’ll never guess it even if we sit here for two million years — It’s the irrational fear of being stared at by a duck. Don’t you forget it!
Judi Dench Interviewed – 11 October, 2017
Another promo shot of Judi as Princess Natalia Dragomiroff in the upcoming adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express.
Fandom: Agatha Christie’s Death on The Nile (1978)
Pairing: Miss Bowers/Olivia Mathews (OC)
Characters: Miss Bowers, Olivia Mathews (OC)
Summary: When Miss Bowers saves fellow passenger Olivia Mathews from certain death, it awakens a hidden desire in both women, that will ultimately change their lives.
Notes: A random idea I had when watching the 1978 adaptation of Death on the Nile. I have based my OC, Olivia Mathews, on the characteristics of Judi Dench when she was in her 40s, to coincide with Miss Bowers age in the movie. I have also given Miss Bowers the first name of Kathryn for the purpose of this story.
I do have more of this story written with an actual plot, but I have no idea whether to continue and publish the full story once it’s complete, or just keep it as a private project. So, I have decided to post this little snippet, as I quite like how this part turned out.
Hope you enjoy!
