Just Cause...

It fits WAY too well...

Explanation first.  When I decided to take on a younger Rab, I decided to go with someone who had younger options for photos, though I kept Stuart Townsend as my Older (late twenties to early forties) Rab.  I ended up going with Jonathan Rhys Meyers because he smirks so perfectly, and he's been doing movies for a good while now so there are some lovely younger shots of him, and some lovely smut of him as well. ;)

When [info]wolfish_cat picked up Rodolphus Lestrange in the first game we played them in, the previous player had been using Colin Farrel for him, so she kept using him, but after a while, we agreed that Viggo Mortensen worked better for him, though when we played them younger, she kept Colin for his younger self.

We've played with a number of different Death Eaters over the years, a Lucius or two, a Rookwood, a couple of different Severuses, even an Evan or two.  We also ended up creating one of our own, mostly out of whole cloth and one of the "extra" names we had--Thorne Wilkes (Pansy's Uncle, though we've also played him as her younger brother).  Thorne's PB is Hans Matheson, a little something to keep in mind.

So I got to chatting with [info]snapesgirl today about JRM and how pretty he and Henry Cavill are in the Tudors (I have a feeling some of you will guess where this is going...), and she admitted that she sees Henry as her version of the younger Ro.  I couldn't help but agree.  In rl, he and JRM are actually the reverse ages of Rab and Ro, but...it fits.

So I asked [info]wolfish_cat about it tonight (well, this morning for her, and I guess it is even morning for me right now...if not dawn yet), and we agreed--it's just too good not to use him.  So Colin is going by the wayside.

And as we were looking around for pictures of the boys together in the Tudors, we came across this little picture:

Isn't it perfect? :D

"It was twenty years ago today..."

Okay, actually, it was only two, and it was sometime around the fifth of last month that I first started Roleplaying two years ago.  I was forcibly reminded of it this morning when I went to post a Blaise-fic at [info]blaise_zabini (come on, you know you want to post there!), and realized that I'd written it with the gal playing Draco in that first game for [info]inell's birthday that year.

I have not regretted any of it, despite some of the angst my characters have put me through.  So many lovely characters, too.  And so many games.  Moonlight, Suivre, Ab Dissimilis, Gaywarts...and now Founder's Legacy.

I'm not normally a very social person.  It takes a lot for me to speak up around strangers.  But with RP, I've discovered this whole group of friends I never would have had without it.  People who I can't imagine not speaking to as often as I possibly can.  I think you know who you all are, but let me say here and now, that I adore each and every one of the people who I have played with in those two years.  You've given me some amazing times, and I'm so glad to have met you.  And I hope to go on playing together with you for a good long time.  *hugs you all*

(Blaise, George, Padma, Draco, Remus, Severus, Rabastan, Silas Burns (Youngest Hobgoblin), Corin Lupin (Au younger half-brother of Draco)
2. I will comment telling you the following:
a. What initially prompted me to like the character enough to write about him/her.
b. One of his/her best traits.
c. One of his/her worst traits.
d. How easy/difficult I find it to write the character.
e. The story/chapter/paragraph/phrase where I feel that I truly captured the character.

Update of doom

I just seem to be so distracted these days, I rarely seem to post anything but fic or memes.  So a list of my life of late:

* On Spoilers!  I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again.  I don't want to be spoiled.  Please, please, please!  Put stuff under a cut for those of us who want to actually read the book without prior knowledge?  Thanks.

many many many other things behind the cut, to save my flist from teh ginormous post of doom )

And I think I'll stop there.  And maybe try to post more often? :P  Hope everyone is having a good day.

Sorry to those I game with, who will see this twice or even three times...

I keep going to the Noble Collection thinking I want Draco's wand, then I look at it and realize it's not worth it.  It's not pretty enough.  My inner Draco snubs his nose at it.  So today, I went searching, and found this site: Whilrwood Magic Wands.

They're just gorgeous.  I've decided that Lucius's wand is under the Magic wands section, the second one down, if anyone wanted to look. :D

I couldn't help myself.  All my rp charries now have links to "their" wands at the site:

Blaise’s wand
George’s wand
Padma’s wand
Remus’s wand
Severus’s wand
Draco’s wand
Rabastan’s wand

Ad: Ab Dissimilis

I've already mentioned this here, but we are now actively casting.  I hope people will at least give it a look.  I know most people aren't huge on AU, but if we have the right cast, it could be so fun. We've already got a good handful of great players, but there's always room for more.



::Ab Dissimilis::
::An HP First Year AU RPG::
::Starting August 20th::


Imagine a world where the Prophesy never came to pass. A world where Harry Potter grew up not only with his parents, but with a whole family of his father’s best friends around him. Where he had friends before Hogwarts. Friends he would, and could, trust with his life.

This is the world of Ab Dissimilis. Harry’s not an orphaned child, but the son of James Potter, coach of the Chudley Cannons, brother of Rose and Eddie Potter, and best friend to Shot Black, Sirius’s son, Neville Longbottom Pettigrew, and Draco Malfoy, who has been raised by Remus Lupin.

Despite the differences in his world, though, there are still the same dangers ahead. And now he has more to lose: family, friends…his innocence…his life. With the start of his first year at Hogwarts, Harry will come into contact with those plotting to return the Dark Lord to his body, to his former glory. How will the Prophesy finally manifest? Will Harry and his friends survive? Can they find a way to stop the Dark Lord from returning? And what role will the Marauders have in all this?

RPG idea

Okay, so I've had this idea for a while, but it's really starting to want to be done lately.  I've talked to a handful of people who all seem quite interested.

Marauder AU –

 
The four Marauders are alive, well, and have families. 

James and Lily married right out of Hogwarts.  They have three children: dark haired, green eyed Harry; red-haired, hazel-eyed Rose; and red haired, green-eyed Edward (also known as Eddie). Lily died shortly after Eddie's birth from complications, and James was forced to raise their children by himself with the help of his friends and their wives.

Though Peter had been tempted by the dark side about the time that Harry was born, during that same time, he came into contact with an old flame, Alice Longbottom, who had just lost her husband in a raid, and was raising her young son alone.  She kept Peter from joining the dark side by showing him that someone trusted him enough to rely upon him, and Peter never looked back.  When the Potters switched secret keepers, Peter, Neville and Alice joined them at Godric’s Hollow, and waited for the war to end.  They now have four other children, all blond and blue-eyed: Beth, Corrine (also known as Cori), Dannis (usually known as Dani), and Peter Frank (known as Pete to separate him from his father).

Dumbledore and the Order of the Phoenix, along with the other two Marauders, went into battle with Voldemort and his Death Eaters, and Dumbledore struck down the Dark Lord.  The Death Eaters scattered, trying to escape to their homes before they were captured.  Remus and Sirius chased one Death Eater all the way to Wiltshire, and to his own Manor, where they did battle with him, killing him in the process of trying to capture him.  Sirius took it upon himself to explain events to his cousin, Narcissa, seeing as he had had a hand in her husband’s death, but it was Remus who comforted her while she mourned.  Soon enough, Remus and Narcissa were inseparable, and it was not long before they were married.  They have since given Draco two younger siblings: Corin, who has his father’s pale brown curls and his mother’s blue eyes; and Diantha, who looks to grow up to look exactly like her mother.

Sirius, upon realizing he was the last unmarried Marauder, decided to propose to his current girlfriend, Hestia Jones.  Unfortunately, after the birth of their second son, Sirius realized that marriage just wasn’t for him, and they divorced.  Their sons, both with black hair and grey eyes, are Morgan and Owen.

MWPP Mk 2 ~*~ MWPP Mk 2

Now, Harry, Draco and Neville are off to start their first year at Hogwarts, already having dubbed themselves the Marauders Mark 2, or MM2 for short.  But something thought dead is stirring, and there is still darkness waiting to destroy their happy world.  Is Voldemort truly dead?  And Dumbledore and those of the Order who know of the Prophesy cannot help but wonder which of the two boys will be the one marked to destroy Voldemort forever?



So, Draco's absolutely taken, and I have somone interested in Neville.  Anyone else want to pipe up?  I'd love to hear thoughts on it.  Or just squees if you'd like to participate.  It'd be over at GJ, so the Journal would be free.  I already have a bunch of different lists for it, if people are interested in character lists.  And I refuse to start until I have the seven main characters: Harry, Draco, Neville, and the four Marauders.  Oh, and would anyone be interested in helping to Mod?  Cause there's no way I'd be able to do this alone...

Fic and general blather

So, I have all the books except for HBP in MP3 format, so I like to listen to them while I'm at work.  Not a big deal, right?  The problem being that it tends to cause my AU muse to act up.

I have a story, Finding Harry, which I worked on for something like a year and a half, so it's got a special place in my heart.  The story goes: cut for Finding Harry spoilers )

I had great fun with the fic, fixing some of the problems I have with canon, and making many of the characters stronger emotionally than they are in the books.  I really want to do a rewrite of the story before I move on to the next one, but when I listen to the books, I can't help but think of threads for the second.

I do have one major problem, though.  more FH spoilers )

I've even written an intro-paragraph for FH2: even more spoilers for FH )

So, I'd love people's opionions--on the fic, on the above problem, on things you always hated about the Harry Potter books.

---

Anyway, I was listening to POA today, and I always adore the Shrieking Shack scene for its detail about the Marauders' lives. 

And it made me wonder--what would their children have been like if they'd all "survived" the war?  I don't think they would have been able to permanently kill off Voldemort, but I can see them hiding from him long enough to take him down for a time, and survive to get married and have kids.  Harry with two living parents and a brother and sister...And Peter falling for Alice Longbottom after Frank dies in a raid.  Remus ends up with Narcissa after Lucius dies fighting against them. (Don't look at me that way, Lysa...)  And Sirius "makes do" for a time with Hestia Jones.  So there's all these Marauder kids, and Harry, Draco and Neville have been raised as friends--the Next Marauders. 

Is it totally a bad idea?

Randomness -

RPG is fun.  And addictive.  (I actually considered making FH2 one, but there lies madness)  Just wish I had access at work, cause we're all so far apart that by the time I get home, several of the main players are asleep, or should be, which means we get at most two or three responses a day.

[info]titti is redoing The Thin Line, and will be including all Snape/M Black pairings on the site.  It will be lovely to have easily accessible Severus/Regulus fics.

Posted The Proper Way (LM/RB) and Ribbons (HP/DM) over at the Archive.  Both NC-17.

Been reading a ton of Manga lately (Thank you, Anne... ;D).  So many Manga, so little time. :D  Some favorites?  Eriee Queery, Nana, Paradise Kiss, Alice 19th, Ceres...  I'm sure that's not all, but I'm very much enjoying what I'm finding, generally. :)

And a last bit.

    Start [info]hd_directory bios
    Finish the first edit of Chrysalis
    Write two more sections of Velvet Captivity
