, I haven't posted in the longest time... it's time that I return - even if it is only to bless LJ with my magical presence, then glide away ethereally, leaving behind a hint of my perfume.
I just removed almost everybody from my friends list - as we were all strangers that never really connected, even though at some point I hoped we would. I've added several new communities with my current interests.
The pictures below represent the things that I've discovered very recently, and have come to love. Except for one, they are all related. Alan Rickman
- Fantastic actor, sexy as hell, all-around loveable. Cuddling with him looks like pure heaven, and he can dance a mean tango! (Watch this if you don't believe me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuBboY8rck8
I'd love nothing more than to lay down in a soft bed, and have him read for me for hours (even the phone book would do!), preferably whispering it to my ear. His velvety, smooth, deep voice is better than sex! ;-) Severus Snape -
A sarcastic, cruel, hateful bastard of a professor, who goes out of his way to make his students miserable... Or at least, that is the first impression that he gives. (And second, and third...) But the more we get to know him through the Harry Potter books, the more we can't help but love him, even when we continues acting like a bastard. He is the character with more depth and more layers in the entire series... I can't help but daydream of playing with his hair, softly caress his unreadable mask of a face, hug him and tell him he is not alone... And I'd be there for him, as his best friend, even if he insulted me every ten seconds.Harry Potter - and by that I mean: the books, the movies, the whole universe created by J.K.Rowling. I am not a fan of fantasy, so I never cared to give it a try. (Except for one time, when I watched the first 15 min of the 1st movie, got bored and gave up.) But eventually (maybe 3 months ago) I figured that HP was like rice: billions of chinese could not be wrong! So I popped the movie on the DVD player again, and watched the whole thing. There, I was hooked. In only 3 months I've watched all of the movies, read all seven books (finished the last one the day before yesterday!) and have read more fan fiction that I've read in a lifetime... Now my mission is to convert my husband, so I can have someone to talk about this stuff all day. :-)
Closet Land - I can't reccomend this enough!
One of my favorite movies at the moment, absolutely fantastic - never mind that it only has 2 actors, and they never leave this one room. For some uncomprehensible reason, it has never been released on DVD (what a crime!!!), but we can watch the full feature on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6x2drQHkXWw
I've seen it on some people's list of "The Ten Most Shocking Movies Ever", but I can't help but get hugely turned on by it... and it you see the comments on YouTube, most people do too - and they get ashamed by it, not understanding why a torture movie should be this erotic. Story: this woman is kidnapped from her own bed at night, tied up, blindfolded, and taken to this guy that works for some government agency. She writes children books, and he accuses her of having writen a political message disguised as an innocent story. She denies it, but he won't be convinced otherwise... and he is determined to make her confess.
As horrible as this is, as inhumane are the things that he does to her, I can't help but wish that Alan Rickman would kidnap me, tie me up, and sit with me for hours, talking with his oh-so-sexy voice, whispering empty threats and trying to mess with my head. *drools* (As for the torture part, that wouldn't be necessary, thank you very much!)Snarry -
(Snape/Harry) - This confuses me a little. Why should a straight girl melt like butter, daydreaming of being a gay boy getting it on with his professor, is not something that I understand - but I embrace it. I adore Snape, but thinking of him with women doesn't do anything for me. (I LOVE him and Lily, but that's love, which is different.) These two have such a complex love-hate relationship, I can't help but seeing them together. I used to search for pictures of cute kittens and puppies when I wanted to feel a warm, fuzzy feeling... now I get that from snarry! Lucius Malfoy -
There is not much to say, except that he is a gorgeous, sexy bastard. Ah, my weakness for villains! I won't say that I like him - I'd very much enjoy punching him in the face, getting rid of that arrogant smirk of his - but that doesn't mean he isn't serious eye candy, or that I wouldn't get much pleasure from playing with his hair, twisting my fingers around it... In fact, I wouldn't even mind if he insulted me some, going on about me being a filthy Muggle, then grabbing me by the hair and kissing me by force...Fanart -
I have been SO impressed lately with the quality of fanart out there. I can't believe how many seriously talented people there are (which I certainly envy - I can barely draw stick men!), and I can only thank them for sharing these precious images with the rest of us.Sweeney Todd
(the movie) - What can I say? Love the songs, love the actors, love the visuals, love the sick and twisted plot. Tons of blood, gore, angst, revenge, evil! And Alan Rickman plays yet another villain, which is awesome! People having their throats slit, then being grinded and turned into meat pies - something that evil has never been so hot before. (Did I really say that?)
