This was inspired by the amazing musical, Miss Saigon -- beautiful story and inspirational music. And it was just that song, "Last Night of the World" that I always thought of the dance scene in Vendetta. ... So, having had that thought in my head for years now, it was really great to finally be able to implement it at long last. And, after going through three different versions, I think this one turned out the best.

** I tried to do this for the Fifth ... but I didn't make it. I wrote it because ... because I felt I needed to do something -- anything for my beloved day of days. With each word I wrote, I began to hate it more and more. But I wrote it with a special song in mind -- the song that plays in the beginning ... feel free to listen to it as you read. It's "Shattered" by Trading Yesterday. And there have been times that a flicker of a thought or a feeling would arise ... and I could remember who I used to be ... what I'm looking for ... And so I wept, wept for that old joy and wept for too many reminders of what isn't. **( Read more...Collapse )

Welcome to lafleurdusoleil!
I'm unsure how many of you still exist here. You can't all be hiding under the piano...
Anyhoo... I popped by to let you know that my husband, the handsome and talented synap, whipped up a little V-themed treat yesterday to celebrate the 5th. He isn't a member here so he can't post it directly, but you can go to his blog and see it there. S is a sound engineer (in training) and decided to make his own mini V trailer. Aside from the dialog, everything else (sound-wise) is him. He even re-cut scenes from various other trailers to create the scenes and transitions that he wanted. All in about 2 hours.
If he had his way, V for Vendetta would've been a much darker film... ;)

Guy Fawkes TP Roll Craft
The nice thing about the toilet paper roll crafts is that they will burn (mini Guy Fawkes effigies). You can do this in a wood burning fireplace, outdoor firepit, small campfire or local Guy Fawkes bonfire with LOTS of adult supervision!!
toilet paper roll,
something to colour with and
a piece of paper
toilet paper roll craft
Print out the template of choice.
Colour the pieces as appropriate and cut them out.
Glue the large rectangular piece around the toilet paper tube (it looks like coat with "tails" when it's on the tp roll).
Glue the head and arms onto the tp roll.
Glue the buttons down the front of the shirt
Bend the tab of the feet and glue them on the bottom (for a 3D effect).
Glue the explosive barrel into one of the hands or by the feet.
Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
Guy Fawkes template (color) or (B&W)
Hope you enjoy some silliness for today.
Guy Fawkes Day Poem
Remember, remember, the 5th of November
The Gunpowder Treason and plot ;
I know of no reason why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
'Twas his intent.
To blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below.
Poor old England to overthrow.
By God's providence he was catch'd,
With a dark lantern and burning match
Holloa boys, Holloa boys, let the bells ring
Holloa boys, Holloa boys, God save the King!
Hip hip Hoorah !
Hip hip Hoorah !
A penny loaf to feed ol'Pope,
A farthing cheese to choke him.
A pint of beer to rinse it down,
A faggot of sticks to burn him.
Burn him in a tub of tar,'
Burn him like a blazing star.
Burn his body from his head,
Then we'll say: ol'Pope is dead.

A while ago I mentioned the Crack Van. My reason for doing so came from the realization that the V for Vendetta fandom is not currently represented among all its story and fanvid recommendations, which struck me as a silly state of affairs when so many good things are out there. I don't know about you guys, but I'd really like to see more exposure for the fandom.
If we do this, the first step would be to write an overview for the fandom. The format is:
Pics & Bios - thumbnails and a brief introduction to the main characters
Overview - including major plot points/story arcs
Fandom Resources - major archives, recs lists, live journal communities, etc. People are always welcome to leave links for additional archives or personal recs pages in the comments of your overview.
Picture hosting is available through the comm's moderators, and is preferred if you cannot provide permanent hosting of your overview pics.
I'm willing to work on this, but I need at least one other person to lend a hand. Anyone?
Once that's set, it's very easy to become a Crack Van "driver" - there are clear posting guidelines here, and if we sign up for a monthly feature rather than a year-round presence, that means one person would only need to post one rec minimum per week for one month (and small fandoms like ours have no maximum limit!). That's all it takes, and the people who volunteer are given a week's notice before their assigned month.
There we have it. Thoughts?

I felt I wanted to make a picture of this nature after having seen an interview with Benjamin Netanyahu -- the prime minister of Israel. That interview was incredibly refreshing. He spoke in a language that was easily understood, in lieu of half truths and metaphors like so many do. He spoke plainly. And he spoke of the one thing that people are sorely forgetting about and not striving, above all else for -- peace.
Rarely do I hear that word in the media -- or *anywhere* to be frank. ... People don't strive for peace anymore because they feel they must be swept up into chaos and destruction like the rest, to prove some kind of point to those choosing peace that that notion is a long forgotten memory. A word to the foolish -- it isn't. Peace and love will *always* endure the wrath of Winter's destruction ... and roses will bloom amidst the rubble of that mess. Only in that way, will they ever hope to bloom.
Peace and creation above all else. Why is that thrown away over the constant equation of, "because that's just how the world works?" ... Forgive me, but I will be a catalyst and a change for *good* things, go against the grain of maliciousness, and not add to the problem like so many are.
"With the ballad of a dove, go with peace and love."

to jen176. :D
It's been a while and we've had a number of new members pop up, so I'd like folks to sound off again -
What brought you here? Ages and ages ago, this group was home to "fringe" fics that featured not-so-highlighted characters (Creedy, Finch, Sutler, etc.) in V for Vendetta - hence the name. xD It later developed into more of a V/Evey atmosphere with an interesting array of OCs (W, Victor, Thorn, Raven... I think I'm forgetting some!)
As happens in most non-mainstream fandoms, we've definitely experienced a slowdown with occasional flickers of inspiration. So, given the new influx of people I have to ask this new generation: What do you want this place to be?
...or are you just here for the naughty stories--? xD
