" "'For what!' Lestat grimaced, so that his face looked like a skull." "___"Interview With The Vampire" by Anne Rice
and the 2nd nearest is;
" Mayhap not overtly, but in the way a mouse took one look at a cat and kept wisely to the shadowy corners of a room? "___"The Dark Highlander" by Karen Marie Moning
I have this massive pile developing under my metal desk, and most of it is Anne Rice, "Vampire: The Masquerade", or manga >.> I hope I get my bookshelf assembled soon -__-;
Lestat de Lioncourt from the "Vampire Chronicles" scored <b>144</b> on The Universal Mary-Sue Litmus Test. [though I did count "Do you find your character attractive enough to date him/her?" because Rice did base him off her husband when she created Lestat]
alchemy_hisoka , are you as surprised as me that it wasn't higher? Though maybe I was too lenient?
Please take the test for Armand babes XD
Zinnian scored 28 >.> [probably would have been lower if I didn't include things like "Does your character have telepathic and/or telekinetic (Force-like) abilities in a world where this is unusual?", when thinking that most people in WOD don't have Auspex, etc.]
Replying to protected entry fails D: "The only thing I want soon is my cable. Everything else can wait. I think the cable can fit in one of those bubble envelopes though. As for the art supply I want; "quilling strips" for use with paper-quilling~ Just 1 tube of each colour-set though :3 and I will need your PayPal! YOU ARE VERY WELCOME too for giving poor Janken a good home :-P (and I use rechargable batteries to help some. And if you wont be using it for awhile take the batteries out or it will kill them) It can support folders too[to change a folder pause the song and press the mode(is that the name?)button,select the folder and hold mode to play]. Put anything good on it?"
I though I had deleted the bootleg!rip I had of "The Sims2",but I still had it on Colonel Volgin :D So I have been playing it like whoa~ I made a "Rice" family;Marius,Armand,Lestat,Nicki,Louis,&Claudia. I forgot Gabriel,but will make her separetly ^^; So far Armand & Marius heart each other after Armand had a brief thing with Louis
I should have been Nicki. I should have popped-in with the musician last year when Armie started with Armand. But, no. I went with the ego. The muse of such has haunted me since. Then again, I would have to play batshit & that character-bit about having my hands cut-off. Really though. As much as I whine, I still love it!
My zinnia-honeys have been planted!~ 7 kinds =O I also planted four-o-clocks, musicbox petit sunflowers,&nicotiana :3 NSCC is offering a Horticulture course, so I think I may have found what I shall do! I narrowed it down to lawyer,chef,or botanist anyway XD
Im off to Greenwood at Noon~ Lay-away the MP3 player,buy DMC#977 floss,a 25th anniversary pick,and some watercolours.
Im almost on chapter 5 of "The Vampire Lestat" again. I hope to finish it before I this July--maybe even before I talk to Armie again. I still love mortal Nicolas de Lenfent the best. Pity he went mad...*bah*. I need to have Internet again, so I can go on Gizmo and have a Armand&Lestat chat again...maybe Crack, maybe not. I cant keep the character up over the phone; I laugh too much. Really, Lestat is ridiculas. I still dont get why I became stuck with him D: I dont even make a good Lestat to Armadei's perfect Armand...I dont even really like the Brat Prince. It is all fun though. Then there is parental!Marius *snot*
It has been like 2 years since I last read any Vampire Chronicles and it makes me giggle not just because we ruined it with Crack, but because it is nostalgic.
Im stuck in Redemption, so I decided to either play Bloodlines, or start on practicing my French. I used to be in Extended Core & have written a children's book. Now I am so damn rusty it makes me dissapointed in myself. Well I sat down and "read" the begining of "The Vampire Lestat". Im somewhat able to act as not!Crack!Lestat again like I used to with Armie, before he went all Rockstar & self-absorbed & S&M...though canonly he did kick Armand's ass after the boy angel hit-on him...also does "Tell me how bad I am, it makes me feel so good." need context? My head!Lestat wears leather chaps...I'll start on the French after I plant my zinnia.
Once again Ive got a persistant cough. Last time I "read" TVL I had whooping-cough. I must have empathy for Gabriel? I remember listening[audiobook] to the part where she is dying of consumption at 3am while cluthing my sides because I hurt from coughing...then I watched a SARS movie where most of the characters died...T'was a wonderful night :-P *hairflip*
I am glad to have Armie to talk to. A smidge of our Crack and I feel wonderful! Our Crack seems to get more alaborate everytime. We seem to have completely ruined the Vampire Chronicles for both of us...'my' Lestat is certainly never boring though XD He is a Rockstar afterall! Armie makes me feel so alive!
Today is the day of the annual churh sale! I bought a sythesizer last year :3 so I wonder what I shall procure this year :D
I am setting-up the Shaglehod [my computer] today in my bedroom *woooo~*!!!♥ I cant wait to play Bloodlines again and watch Doctor Who! Toreador!~ I may be playing Corina my Malkavian though.
I have a massive urge to watch "Interview With The Vampire", but I dont have it on DVD and I have a taped VHS but am without a VCR. A copy of it is on my Birthday Wishlist...I am blaming the urge on my 'head!Lestat!muse acting-up. I miss role-play on Gizmo. "Stop looking at my buttons."
I took Minnow for 2 walks today! I am very sick of being stuck in the house!!! The weather has sucked and I have been sick. I am still sick & it is cold & windy but the sun was out! Dug-up my poor begonia-honey today, and brought it inside. It spent the weekend under a bucket & got blustered this morning.
Going to outpatients tomorrow morning! Ive had a sore throat for a week & I still feel like crap. The ColdFX and such has only helped some. I have been getting rest and liquids; I just hope to get something for my throat. I also finally get to see Dr.Martin tomorrow too! I have a knee problem which doesnt hurt but causes pain in my hip & lower back. Im happy to get reajusted. My last session was in Dec ;__;
