|keyofhell||09:37 pm - Duma?|
I will be RP-ing Duma at this awesome RPG, Paixao, soon. However, I just realized how there aren't any images of him on the net and I don't have any of the series which contains him (I read them at Borders teehee).
It would be really awesome if someone would make me icons of him! I'll give you tons of cookies!! :3

Ok, here's the deal. For my art AS level I am doing a project on Little Red Riding Hood, and what I really need for it is a scan of the page in The Doll's House where Gilbert tells Rose about the story. You know the one? I haven't got access to a scanner, or the book for that matter, at the moment, so if one of you could hook me up I'd be eternally grateful.

|trista_marie||06:09 pm - I am a nerd, but bear with me|
I am obsessed with this Sandman comic series. Neil Gaiman is already working on a screenplay for his comic called "Books of Magic" but he should totally do a Sandman movie. I have the actors all picked out for each of The Endless. Most of them are unrealistic, but let's remember this is just for fun. lol
I thought she could either be played by me simply because that was an awful high school nickname of mine by default, or that actress named Fairuza Balk. She's a real actress so maybe that would work better?
I look at all of his pictures and all I can picture is Chuck Norris. I don't even like Chuck Norris. But it would be a good part for him to play.
I don't know this little girl's name but she played "Sarah" in the original "The Crow" movie. Keep her at that age, streak her hair, and make her completely nuts and you've got little Delirium.
I look at her boobs and all I can think of is Kathy Bates. *shudder*
Since you can't tell if desire is a man or a woman and desire is pretty well...desirable... I thought and thought about this and I picked Miyavi, even though he can't speak English, probably never picked up a Sandman comic in his life, and is definitely not an actor.
Destiny is sort of old, and wise. I picture him to be pretty monotoned, and kind of cryptic. I saw Dustin Hoffman in that Joan of Arc movie where he played, possibly, God. And the way he dressed just reminded me of Destiny. He would play the part very well.
And last but not least, For Dream...the main character of the comic. THE Sandman:
I almost said Johnny Depp but he's not quite dark enough. He's more quirky and kind of goofy. Jonathan Rhys Meyers always seemed really dark to me. Granted, in most movies I've seen him in he plays a negative role, or even just perhaps the bad guy (e.g. in Titus he played one of the barbarian brothers who raped a young woman, chopped off her hands, and shoved tree branches into her stumps). Dream is pretty dark, but he's not a bad guy. He's the main character who falls in and out of the scenarios that Gaiman creates throughout the comic. Dream is pretty neutral, and somewhat uncaring of the lives he affects as the series goes on. Jonathan Rhys Meyers gives off that sort of dark, cold, uncaring, neutral vibe. I think he'd work just fine for the part.
God, I know I'm a nerd for thinking of this but seriously it would be a great movie as long as Gaiman has full control of the screenplay.

I seem to be one of the few people keeping this place alive, but people are still commenting on my posts, so I guess it's worth it. :)
I have lots of icons made from images from a Tarot deck by Dave McKean. Some of the Major Arcana portray Sandman characters.
Current Music: Snow Patrol -- "Run"

Glitches can be expected. It was, after all,
A toy with a Dream.
Changes can occur between first sleep and waking.
Problems spring up.
notes: Thanks very, very much to daisybones for patiently betaing my first attempt at poetry in over a year. I liked the TM in her suggested title, but eventually went with this one instead to avoid violating yet another copyright law ;)
This story borrows two other things from Gaiman, aside from the Sandman universe; first, the story-poem style of his tales Queen of Knives and Virus; second, "putting the computer to sleep" and waking it up, which is an idea from Coraline, but I thought it fit here.
All comments are appreciated.
The rest flowed easily from those

I just came across this picture of a model in the comm h2g2_rating, and I think she really looks like Desire.
( Behind a cut because it's kind of on the large side.Collapse )
I bring to ye also two fanfictions which I have authored, both centered around Wanda from A Game of You. She's one of my absolute favorite characters.
Summary: Wanda's thoughts after her death. Set at the point in A Game of You when Barbie sees Wanda and Death in her dream.
A Chance Encounter
Summary: Wanda meets a creepy man in a bar who says that he just wants to talk to her... set around the time of The Doll's House.
