Do you have an artist?
Name(Lj name): chaotic_binky
Summary: The story is taken from a true account by Count Glorfindel, dated 1904, and is being told for the first time, over one hundred years later. Because of the delicate nature of his investigations, the subject matter has remained a state secret. Only now can the true story of the Star of Africa and the secret of the Royal Succession be told.
Count Glorfindel is a gentleman detective living in London in 1904. He has lived for the past two hundred years in a Russia Palace and is still, after ten years, adjusting to life in his new home.
Glorfindel investigates the theft of the Arctic Diamond from Guisborough Park house. He suspects that the robbery is a trial run and the real prize is the Crown Jewels. An elf from his past, a member of a shadowy organisation bent on world power, tries to kill him several times during the investigation, or does he? Is there any reason why Glorfindel should trust this elf when he is called upon to do so?
What is the secret behind the Cullinan diamond - the Star of Africa - and why will some go to any lengths to preserve it, including murder?
Conspiracy theories and scandal abound: the true origins of the Star of Africa; the cover up of the royal succession; the true Illuminati and its falsified origins; the true role of the Feanorian brothers and the identity of the one elf who can bring down the Royal Family, if he wishes, as opposed to the one who tries, are revealed here for the first time in one hundred years.
After Celebrimbor is killed, Erestor returns to Lindon, grievously wounded in body and soul. Glorfindel is inexplicably drawn to help him return to health, despite the troubles in their past that should drive them apart.
This is the story of two people brought together by curiosity and sorrow; how Erestor learned that not everyone will always judge him by his name, and how Glorfindel learned that the past doesn't always define who you are. Edited at 2013-01-03 12:13 am (UTC)

Cool - I've heard from her! :D
Name(Lj name): ZeeDrippyVessel
Fandom: Tolkien - 3rd age (Rohirrim)
Summary: Lýðrest is the gutter - mouthed daughter of the owner of the only tavern in Druncenig Ende and Elfhelm is simply trying to stay out of the way of her swinging frying pan while his youngest brother heals from an ugly injury obtained during a battle with Dunlendings. To make matters worse, the foul-mouthed wench has garnered the interest from the vilest of Rohirrim. What lengths will her father go to to get her out of town and safely hidden somewhere else, protected for the rest of her life? For Elfhelm, she becomes... The Sweetest Thing. Takes place approximately 20 years before the War of the Ring.
Riderverse. Will be rated Mature.

Re: The Sweetest Thing
wants to do your art! And I'll try to get the rest of your chapters back asap. So you're set!
Re: The Sweetest Thing
You'll get the rest of it - I'm HOPING no later than Monday. I'm writing it in one document (like I did the His, Mine, and Ours trilogy) and I'll break it down (probably 2, maybe 3 chapters) when I get it back. What tinkering I've done so far has only been word swaps.... certainly NOTHING like LRS! Maybe an added sentence.
I have this nagging, mangy dwarf bunny pestering me and he's just going to have to wait until something ELSE is finished!

Just wanted to let you know that zhie
had expressed an interest in doing your art so I told her to contact you, if she was still interested and you decide to try to finish.
|Date:||February 3rd, 2013 05:00 pm (UTC)|| |
Yes, I am still in. Only for the first listed story through (Tolkien.)
|Date:||February 9th, 2013 02:57 pm (UTC)|| |
contact you? If she didn't, go ahead and send her a PM.
|Date:||February 9th, 2013 08:47 pm (UTC)|| |
Yes, she did. I sent her a copy this morning. :)
You wanted artists to post here? So...even though I have worked with Chaotic Binky before, her storyline really appeals to me and is dissimilar enough from last year's to allow for different illustrations, if she's not averse to a repeat.
If she would rather have someone else, then I'll switch streams and ask for zeedrippyvessel's Rohirrim story instead. Just let me know...

Thank you Erulisse - I would love to work with you again :D
Then see if you can't get the assignment because I'd love to work with you again. This story sounds like so much fun and I can play with buildings from the Victorian era.
- Erulisse (one L)
We do have the assignment - Alex told me yesterday. I will send you the story after giving it another quick read through ;D
Yippee!!! Dancing the happy dance :-)

If not already taken then I'd like to have Zee's story again this year.

Okay! I'll post to her.
Well, no I'm NOT good. I'm very very bad. grrrrr badbadbad. You get the picture.
Did I sign up? I completely missed it, but since you seem to need more artist I would like to do the story from burning_night
if isn't already taken.
|Date:||February 2nd, 2013 03:26 pm (UTC)|| |
Go ahead and contact her. I'll let the two of you work out the details and good luck! :)
I looked back through last years and think I can do some art. Your story would be good for me if that's okay. What do you think?
|Date:||February 4th, 2013 08:35 pm (UTC)|| |
Which person? Couldn't tell.
I meant your Sherlock story, I should have be more specific sorry about that. The kids had just come in and were yelling for snacks and I got distracted, lol.
|Date:||February 5th, 2013 05:28 pm (UTC)|| |
Cool. Email me and I'll send you the story and we can talk about what to do.
