narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (flashback)
Unravelling the details over time, forgetfulness and flashes of insight I can finally come up with a good comparison when it comes to charting the progress of fictional racists. Seth Nightlord of Trinity Blood and Severus Snape of Harry Potter and the Noun of Adjective both being the sort of subtly racist characters who usually get entirely overshadowed by the obvious ones.

Briefly then )

Choice (PG. 902 words. Süleyman/Dietrich.)
A lesson in choices.

Fantasy (18+, non-con. Involving cross-dressing and William’s specific use of gender pronouns in regards to Isaak. 1855 words.)
William has a very specific revenge fantasy in mind when it comes to Isaak.

Textual silence may be one of my favourite phrases at the moment because it’s perfectly applicable most of the time.

Aliases (1758 words. G.)
The utility of nicknames and hiding in plain sight. More from the Monster in the Tower.
My original fic site isn’t quite organised just yet but at least I can start uploading new pieces to the required folders so that’s not entirely cheating when it comes to having it ready by Burmese New Year.

Also, a meme stolen from [ profile] levyrasputin:

Name a pairing. I will give you the following.

1. When I started shipping them
2. What I think their challenge is
3. What makes me happy about them
4. What makes me sad about them
5. What moment I wish had never happened
6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other
7. My happily ever after for them

In other news, I still don’t quite know what I think about this Lindsay Gardens Island Spice Tea. It purports to contain black tea, coconut, mango and black pepper, and as the box tells me is microwavable. I can definitely taste the coconut and possibly the mango but there’s no real trace of pepper that I can detect. On one hand this has to be one of the few processed/artificial coconut flavoured things I can stand and certainly the coconut flavouring is wonderfully delicate but on the other hand the fact that I’m not sure I can taste anything else makes me think that the combination of flavours touted on the box is a little bit gimmicky. It’s an inoffensive tea at any rate but nothing spectacular and if I hadn’t been given some I doubt I would have ever bothered to try it.

Also: congratulations, Australia. I believe the appropriate line from the Wilde screenplay would be: "I feel like the city that’s been under siege for twenty years, and suddenly the gates are thrown open and the citizens come pouring out to breath the air and walk the fields and pluck the wild flowers – I feel relieved."

Also: a glimpse of my current Photoshop working area because I’m trying to work out skin tone shading for William. He could presumably be as pale as Dietrich but my sense of aesthetics wants to make him darker. On the other hand I don’t want to use the same choice as I use for Radu and I’m not entirely sure if William should be darker or paler than Radu anyway. If I was colouring an Isaak icon this would have been so much easier since I could just make him anaemically pale instead. And, yes that Radu image still has defined eyes without the background layer. That’s because I put eye makeup on all the Radu images for the most part.

Trying to figure out things like this reminds me that I really ought to pay attention to the way that various language phonetics changes the pronunciation of words. Everyone knows the l/r business in Japanese but trying to sound out ‘Karusure’ and taking a stab at the place name being ‘Karlsruhe’ really brought the complication of pronunciations home. Of course my problem here is that I don’t speak Japanese and have never studied it, thus what I have gleaned are a handful of words orally and little bit of pattern recognition when it comes to the text. None of which makes me terribly sure of my footing when it comes to this sort of thing.

Anyone with a better idea of what the name could be, and an obviously better grasp of Japanese than I have generally, please drop the translator a note on the above linked thread. It would doubtlessly be greatly appreciated.
