rolando8

A long time ago (perhaps last year) I wanted to have an icon/userpic of Orlando. I searched for them, but to no avail. Then, today, I thought, 'Why not make my own Orlando icons?' So I did:

1. Orlando looking sexy. Need I say more? 2.A 'nude' picture of Orlando. I you want to know what I mean, read the descriptions of my icons on The Yellow Sub. 3.A picture of Orlando with text.

You can use these icons as long as you credit me and where I'm from (eg, 'My beautiful userpic was created by someone from LiveJournal whose name was Rolando8'). You can also edit them, eg add words to one of my icons. Enjoy!

Love,

 

Rolando8

9:32 pm - OT: League Of Extraordinary Fanfiction

settiai
Since I haven't had time to update the LXF website nearly as often as I wanted, I've decided to take all of the fanfiction off of it and leave it only as a writers' resource.

If you have any fanfiction, though, you may be interested in the (twin) sister site.

Which is a fully automated fanfiction archive. :-)

support_gc_sp
I'm new here. My name's Kate.
But that's besides the point. My question is: who here uses Fanfiction.net? It's just that I have an approved OFUM (Official Fanfiction University of Middle-Earth) spin-off in the making for the League, and I'm letting you know now, so you can join (if you want too). I'll post the Enrollment Form on my livejournal in a few days/today, unless it's alright for me to put it up on here.
Thanks.

Um, hello. The pen name is Batdz Angel and fanfiction is my game of choice. ~.^ I've recently started to write little drabbles of Dorian/Tom and was delighted to discover this community. Anyway, I'll let you all read my first drabble...

Enjoy!

Title: Fascinating
Rating: PG, for some smooching. ^^;
Challenge: None, I don't think. I haven't looked at any past challenges. Let me know if it applies...
Word Count: Exactly 250
Corsets: Eh, give it Dorian.

Dorian studied the man for a moment before crushing his cigarette. “What can I do for you young Sawyer?” he asked calmly. Tom shuffled his feet and said awkwardly, “Um, I was...that is...if you could...?”

With a roll of his eyes, the immortal stood and said, “If this has anything to do with Mina-“

“No! No, it’s not about Ms. Harker,” Tom said flustered. “I just...”

“Admire me?” Dorian smirked as he leaned forward slightly. “Well, young Thomas, I must admit I’m flattered.”

“That’s not it!” Tom said his cheeks red, giving him a lovely appearance.

“Well, then what is it?”

“I’m in love with you!”

Dorian blinked and Tom blushed harder until he resembled a strawberry. Calmly, trying to ignore the pounding of his heart, Dorian said, “Ah. Well, that is a...”

Tom shut his eyes in dread.

“A fascinating discovery,” Dorian drawled smiling as Tom’s eyes snapped open in shock. “I think I’ll explore this discovery further...”

Leaning forward, he gave the younger man a kiss. Tom’s mind reeled at the feeling as Dorian coaxed his lips open with his tongue, causing the younger man to grip his coat at the shockingly good sensation.

When he pulled away, Tom was staring at him with bright green eyes and Dorian was suddenly besieged with the urge to pull him into his arms and never let him go. He opted to grin and kiss the other man again, enjoying the way his hands tangled themselves into the golden locks of hair.

Well, let me know what you think!

Toodles!

5:11 pm - The Beginning

(Author's Note: I just want to apologise for submitting so many drabbles in one day. It's just that I have had a lot of inspiration today, and I don't want to let the opportunity slip.)

Title: The Beginning
Rating: G
Challenge: Movie Line/Quote
Line from: 'Star Wars: The Phantom Menace'
Words: Exactly 100
Top hats: You know... Jekyll, of course...

This is not the worst moment of my life. Nor is it the best. I sense something… something elusive. I have no idea what it was. Just being here without any answers make me uneasy. What is it that something in my mind is telling me? Why is this happening to me? Pacing around, I contemplate this. I accidentally took a glance at the glass opposite me. Where my reflection is supposed to be, a hideous creature stands in its place.

Hello, Henry. I'm Edward Hyde, and I'm sorry to say, I am part of you.

My world turned black.

Top Hats: Yet another two to the good Doctor, Henry Jekyll

Dear Diary,
Today has been… interesting. I have not had the temptation to quaff a vial of my elixir. Edward has not taken over my body, which is good. And neither has he been talking to me. In fact, he is awfully quiet today. Quite unusual. I wonder if he is gone forever.


Jekyll closed the book and set his quill down. The glare of his table lamp seemed exceptionally bright, he noticed. After a while of deep thought, he decided to get some sleep. He looked forward to a having Hyde-free day tomorrow.

Doctor Henry Jekyll... you disappoint me.

Top hats: Another two to Jekyll

America. The land of tolerance and peace. Sawyer had said that. But he was wrong. I can still remember last night. I was drunk and, on Edward’s suggestion, went out to… ah… ‘pick up whores’, as Edward put it. As I was drunk, she didn’t respond well to my advances. One slap was all it took to release my wild side. I woke up in my apartment with the faint metallic taste of blood in my mouth. Thank you so much, Edward. Now, sitting here alone, waiting to be bailed out, I could only tell myself, “America has no tolerance.”

Top hats: Two to Jekyll

"We don't have much time! Quick, hurry!" he could hear Skinner shouting from across the room. His leg was injured, and he only had a minute more, before the bomb went off. "This is no time to argue about time! Go, Skinner! I'll manage without you!" he shouted back, not wanting to risk his friend's life. "No, Jekyll! Come on!" replied the invisible man. After waiting for less than a second, he had this awful feeling that Jekyll won't make it out quickly enough. He rushed forward to help him out, but it was too late. Just as Skinner left the building, a loud BOOM could be heard and glass shards flew everywhere. The ceiling fell apart. The entire building was collapsing and Jekyll was trapped in it. Skinner didn't know what to do. He could only stand there, helpless, and watch as the building engulf in flames.

In the Nautilus' Sickbay…
"Skinner?" a weak voice called out. Skinner jumped a little, startled. "Thank god you're alive, Doc!" he exclaimed, obviously relieved. "I thought I was going to lose you," he added softly.

"I told you I could manage it," Jekyll whispered and mustered a weak smile.

"You shouldn't have volunteered to go," Skinner said.

"Well, you shouldn't have volunteered either," Jekyll retaliated.

"I -" Skinner started, but he knew not what to say. "It doesn't matter now. All that matters is that, you're alive and well. I'll never leave you on your own again."

Doctor Henry Jekyll only smiled.

1:12 am - Re-posted (er, in right place this time) Movie line/quote drabble.

sensaes
Title: God Bless Africa
Rating: U
Words: 250 (sans footnote)
Top hats to: Mina and Allan.
Challenge: Movie line/quote.
Line from: Angel Heart (1987)


The old witch-doctor had been waiting outside the Imperial Hotel in Nairobi for almost an hour when she finally appeared, still garbed head-to-toe in mourning black. Mina didn’t speak whichever language he gibbered, but his meaning was clear enough: he wanted her to follow him.
It was sunset when they arrived by cart at the site of Quatermain’s makeshift grave, and once again she was touched by Sawyer’s meaningful tribute – the lone Winchester atop the earth. Earth which now seemed curiously scorched…
As the witch-doctor performed his ritual, the old hunter’s words returned to haunt her: ‘Africa will not let me die.’ Could it be, she wondered, that such a sentiment might have some supernatural implication? After all, she was herself testimony to the potential vagaries of presumed mortality.
The last rays of the sun cast a pinkish light across the graveyard and the charred remains of the Britannia Club. It was, Mina thought, both a terrible and beautiful scene. However, her reflections were interrupted by a tangible rumbling as the ground they stood upon began to shake violently.
“What…what is happening?” she asked. The witch-doctor turned to her and smiled broadly.
“Oonah, kalifa!” he cried.
The rumbling intensified, shifting the cross bearing the adventurer’s name. Without hesitation, Mina ran to the cart to fetch a shovel.
Together, she and the witch-doctor uncovered the crude coffin, prising off its lid.
Quatermain’s eyes flickered open.
“Alive?” he rasped.
Mina smiled fondly.
“The future isn’t what it used to be, Mister Q.”


Footnote: Huge thanks to Bellatricks for the inspiration (And Moony Girl for techie help. Hopeless LJ newbie, here...). The last line is the quote, with ‘Q’ substituted for ‘Angel’.

Hi! I'm new, and this is my brand spanking new drabble, written just for you guys. ^___^ Hope you like it!

Title: Some Scotch
Rating: PG-13 (maybe? I'm terrible at ratings)
Words: 100
Top Hats to: Dorian & Mina
Challenge: Movie Line
Line from: American Pie

Mina looked over at Tom, her smile not reaching her eyes. Tom had been watching her closely since they had boarded the Nautilus after the burial of Quatermain.

She said to him, as he stood in the doorway to her room, "I've got some scotch."

"Single malt?" he asked, sauntering into the room.

The smile widened, and she nodded, pouring some into a shot glass for him, "Aged eighteen years, just the way I like it." She handed him the glass, her fingers lingering on his for a moment, and then the moment was over, and they drank in complete silence.

As you can see, we had no challenge submissions for the last challenge. So, we don't have a winner. But we do have a corsetter. ...Is that even a word? Anyway, it's:

Tom Sawyer.

The challenge for this week:

Movie line/quote challenge!

I think it's pretty self-explanitory. You incorporate a quote or line from a movie into the drabble you write.

Top Hats - If you write a drabble with a movie quote/line that's a 100 or 250 words WITHOUT the quote/line, then it's one top hat. If you write the drabble that's a 100 or 250 words WITH the quote/line, it's two top hats.

Corsets - Same as before. You may give a corset to your character of choice if your drabble is not exactly a 100 or 250 words or/and is not a challenge drabble.

I hope we'll have more drabbles this time around.

current mood: good

3:48 pm - Last Week's Winner and Challenge Number Three!

secret_base
Last week's winner ( challenge #2 ) for the most top hats ( and I have to admit he would look good in them ) is...

Dorian Gray.

So we are all Dorianlicious this week with the icon and comments. I'm still looking for icon makers.

We actually had corsetters ( is that even a word? ) this week. It's a tie between...

Tom Sawyer and Mina Harker/Murray.

The potential movie couple get to wear matching outfits. Yey. xD


The challenge for this week:

Game challenge!

These can be actual games, mind games, or a game that you invented yourself. Let your imagination run wild, my people! xD

Top Hats - This week, you will only be able to get one top hat if you write for the challenge and the drabble is exactly a 100 or 250 words. Because I can't come up with anything witty for two. ^^;

Corsets - Same as before. You may give a corset to your character of choice if your drabble is not exactly a 100 or 250 words or/and is not a challenge drabble.

Let the games begin.

7:31 pm - Challenge #2

punkrawkrat
title: An Admission, of Sorts
Challenge: #2
Top Hats: give 'em both to Dorian
Word count: Exactly 100 with the song lines.
Notes: The lyrics are from Live's I Alone. This will likely be a scene in The Two Faces of Dorian Gray eventually.


“What don’t you understand, Mr. Gray? Tom asked.

“The part where you stare at me with adoring eyes, but shun my advances, Thomas,” Dorian growled.

“I’m afraid, Dorian!” Tom half-shouted. “I ain’t never been with no one like you before.”

“That’s no matter, Thomas. We must all face our fears. The simple fact is, out of everyone on this ship, I alone love you. I alone tempt you to my side each day. Your fear is not the end of this.”

“Did you just say that you loved me?”

Dorian paused, smoking his cigarette, before saying, “I suppose I did.”

Challenge: #2
Word Count: 250
Notes: Well, I was going for the overall feeling of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata and how it seems to shed light on the souls of men. If’n you don’t think it meets the challenge then slap a corset on Skinner. If you think it’s worthy then add another fashionable top hat to Dorian’s collection. Oh, and, you know me, this will end up being in The Two Faces of Dorian Gray at some point.


“I didn’t know that you could play, Mr. Gray,” Captain Nemo said as he stepped into his living room and found Dorian seated at his piano. “I also don’t recall giving you permission to enter my private quarters”

“I do apologize,” Dorian said, stepping away from the piano. “I have missed music so dreadfully this past week.”

“I was unaware that you were such a fan, but you should have asked first. However, being that you are already here, Sir, you might as well make good use of the opportunity.”

Dorian nodded his head in thanks and took his seat on the bench once more. His hands rested gracefully on the keys and began to slowly tap out Beethoven. Within moments a bomb could have exploded next to him and he would not have even noticed. Music was the one pure thing in his life and when it claimed him, there were no distractions. Anyone that would argue that the man had no soul left would be proven wrong if they heard him play. For, indeed, it not only proved of the existence of a soul in him, but was an example of the perfection of the thing.

Nemo took a seat nearby and watched the young man play. For the first time since he had made Dorian’s acquaintance, he understood why the fellow was, in fact, extraordinary. It had little to do with the man’s invulnerability, but rather his ability to completely enamour all who come within his sphere.
