j_northam: Jeremy Northam and Kate Winslet - downtime
February 20, 2013
Jeremy's enjoying the amount of quiet time he and Kate have had recently. Neither of them is currently working on a project, so most of their time is spent with each other and Emma. Today is one of the more beautiful days in LA in February, so they packed for a picnic in a park. "No, Emma," Jeremy calls after her. "Leave the pigeons alone."( Home is where you and Emma are. )

j_northam: Jeremy Northam and Jeremy Renner - CBT
Jeremy is at the bar. He has had a very busy day and he is here for one thing only. To find a boy, to beat him, fuck him, then cuddle him for a few hours before heading home to finish the wallpapering. He has recently brought a new house and is busy renovating it. However, all work and no play makes Jeremy really pissed, so he is taking advantage of his brand new club membership to work off some of the frustrations of the day.( I’ve always wanted an excuse to use these. )

dalehead posting in est_meta: Update on Bunny
Not sure how many of you know that Oklahoma has been struck by tornadoes and some of them far too close to Bunny for comfort.
She's fine, her family and critters are fine. She's involved in helping wherever she can, so expect radio silence for now. In the meantime, for those who do, spare a thought for her community in your prayers. Here's a link to the story from the BBC website

young_kirk: About my Nuts ... (Open to all Est Members)
So, I was on Ellen
recently, and the topic of my Nuts came up. Yes, apparently my fans refer to themselves as Pine Nuts. I love my fans like crazy, I owe my success to them, after all. Still, I have this feeling that I'm going to be asked about my Nuts frequently moving forward. I think most of the 'fanning' (is that a word in this context?) that I get is not really about me, but the characters (Kirk, of course, but I've gotten a ton of fan mail about Jack Frost and even some about Rhett Ryan (my country singer - don't ask) and weirdest of all, the freaky scumbag Darwin Tremor from Smokin' Aces
.). I haven't received any undies or room keys in the mail, yet.
And I'm officially single again, something that the Ellen audience seemed to like (was there an 'applause' sign there - please, don't tell me, let me believe). Ellen asked me what I looked for in a girlfriend, and I had a very clear image of saying something to the effect of 'and for a boyfriend, I like ... '.
But I didn't - I'm just not ready yet. I can't help but wonder how Ellen would have reacted to that. Would coming out as bi have tanked me?
That said, I'll go ahead and throw my question out: What are some of the crazier things that peoples' fans have done? Also, has anyone ever had to really fight the temptation to come out in some fashion?
My respect to those of you that have done it - whatever the professional consequences were.

est_hardy posting in est_meta: NPC claims put in
Whatever mod is on the other end right now has been superefficient and, like, immediately posted my claims for Viggo, Milla and Leo on Tom Hardy's behalf. Thank you to gringitasarita
for pointing out that I had never NPCed them, and thank you mod for being quick like bunny.LeoMillaViggo
The upshot of the Tom situation is this: I am going to post a bridge kind of ficlet that will tie up as many loose ends and vagaries as I can. Because the writers of Leo and Viggo have moved on to other things (ages ago), it's as hard for me to maintain those relationships as it was for me to juggle Bruce, Anton and Chris. So please, if you want one of these three pups listed up there, let me know and we can hash out what to keep and throw out.
The core fundamentals are this: I'd like to avoid breakups, but I am willing to offer as much flexibility as I can. People's lives change and they grow (and grow apart). Viggo is so eccentric and amazing, Milla is so goddamned famous and Leo is a machine, workwise, so it'd be hard to maintain ONE relationship in ONE country, let alone several in several. So I can just see this being a transitional thing, with maybe something like every once in a while Tom meets with Viggo or Leo offscreen and they exchange, "I love you, are you happy? Good. Same time next year?"
Woof. It's like being sucked back into a story you forgot you read. Hello, inside of Tom's brain. Missed you.

padawanhilary posting in est_npcs: Claim: Leonardo DiCaprio
Name: Leonardo DiCaprio
Orientation: Bi/ poly
Occupation: Actor, philanthropist, activist
Appearance: 6', huskyish build, blonde hair, blue eyes.
Est connections: Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Viggo Mortensen, many many others.
Back story: Several years ago, Tom and Leo exchanged a handful of insults and embarked on a relationship that started with pissed-off sex in the garden of an environmental preservation fundraising event. They got very deeply involved (Tom was also involved with Viggo Mortensen). There is so much work for Leo, though, and I am willing for him to be picked up if backstory remains intact. Leo goes off to Spain periodically to hang with Viggo and Milla and Tom (this could change, if a new mun needs it to), and he and Tom previously shared a house in L.A. With Leo being off working and doing his activism and philanthropy endeavors, he and Tom are not split, by any means, but there is more distance there. I am going to say that Tom and Leo sold the house, and very occasionally, they meet up again either at Tom's apartment or elsewhere.

padawanhilary posting in est_npcs: Claim: Milla Jovovich
Name: Milla Jovovich
Orientation: Bi/ poly
Occupation: Actor, model
Appearance: 5'9", athletic build, brown hair, blue eyes.
Est connections: Tom Hardy, Leo DiCaprio, Viggo Mortensen, many many others.
Back story: She and Viggo got involved several years back (and two writers ago). Viggo owns and manages a horse ranch-ish in Spain, where Milla spends most of her off-time. Hilary (the mun) is open to her being picked up as long as backstory remains intact.

padawanhilary posting in est_npcs: Claim: Viggo Mortensen
Name: Viggo Mortensen
Orientation: Bi/pansexual, poly
Occupation: Actor, writer, artist, photographer
Appearance: 5'11", slender build, brown hair, blue eyes, pretty tanned skin for a Nordic dude.
Est connections: Tom Hardy ( est_hardy
), Jeffrey Dean Morgan ( jdmorgan
) Leo DiCaprio, Milla Jovovich, everybody who was in Rings
, Christian Bale, many many others. Long and illustrious career.
Back story: He and Tom got involved several years back (and two writers ago). Viggo owns and manages a horse ranch-ish in Spain, where he spends a good deal of his time with Milla and Jeffrey. He and Tom are not as active a couple as they once were, and Hilary (the mun) is not opposed to him being taken up again if it is very clear that the backstory is to remain intact. He's a little strange and eccentric and very, very loving and open.

est_hardy posting in est_meta: Backstory woes
So in Tom's recent post and subsequent thread
, he mentions living in a flat and considering buying a house. Well, I mucked up his backstory, then, because last we mentioned, he was living with Leo and just not seeing Leo much because Leo is...well, Leo, and he works like a machine and flies off to Africa to help babies and suchlike.
But it's been tricky balancing all of that, because in spite of the fact that I love Tom's backstory with Leo and Viggo, the more time elapses, the more I forget this stuff. It's been...a couple years? Since Viggo's writer left the game, and it's been longer than that since Leo's did, so now it's all muddy in my head.
What do you guys do in a case like this? I don't want to wipe the backstory, I don't want to break people up, I just kind of want to...sunset that part that prevents him from moving forward with Davey.

The sun is shining when Oded wakes up and much to his surprise, Zane is still sleeping next to him. Usually his lover is up before him and Oded wonders what Billy would say to breakfast in bed. Only one way to find out. He carefully disentangles his legs from his lover's, getting out of bed for a quick shower. When he's back in the bedroom, he doesn't bother with getting dressed but he stands in the doorway for a moment to watch Billy sleep. Happy
, he thinks before he walks downstairs to prepare their breakfast.

lady_madonna: I'm not comparing myself to Shirley Bassey
(public to Est)
I would never do that - she's so wonderful and so different to me. I almost feel bad doing the comparison myself. But if there is anything she has done that I would like to do as well, it's do a second James Bond theme. I'm not hinting at anything, just that when I did Die Another Day, it was one of the best experiences of my career, and I would love another chance to do that. I actually think - seeing this is my wish and not even near to being a reality, as I would of course do whatever the producers wanted - I would prefer not to appear in the movie if it was to happen again. Not that I didn't enjoy creating the first lesbian Bond girl - I just think it would be hard to do another first like that. Unless they let me play the same character and I got to kiss Moneypenny, but that wouldn't be likely to happen. Still, that might be fun, and not only because Naomie Harris is stunning - though that doesn't hurt a bit.
But yes. If I could have one thing in my career, that's the thing I'd choose. I'm not sure I have a chance of it, but it would be great if it could happen.

night_n_day: There is nothing like being on stage
(public to Est)
I love working in TV. Movies, I'll need a little more experience with to love, but everything so far has been positive, which points to future love. But being on stage, preferably in a musical - though a straight play (who came up with that, anyway? It always seems a little odd to say) is equally amazing - the audience right there, where you can hear reactions - and not just applause - is the best feeling in the world. That high can't be replicated. A really good scene, where you get totally lost in it, is the closest I've come otherwise, but that has its own pleasures that just feel slightly different.
It's good to have something - or two things - to feel like that about, though.

est_burn: Being evil is so much fun
(public to Est members)
I mean in relation to acting. Well, and being benevolently evil in a scene can be fun too, of course. But I love playing the character I'm playing on Revenge. All smooth evil, has the perfect line to shut up the schemers, great wardrobe - what's not to like? Honestly I think he's easily one of the less difficult to 'get' characters, too. I have the backstory that he's a trained assassin, probably brought up by one, but that's just in my mind - the writers could decide something else, and I'd play it.
But I'm going to enjoy it, no matter what. I kind of hope that as long as I can make it work, I'll be able to do this show as long as they want me.

thomas_k: Email to Ian McKellen
Subject: New Zealand?
if the Internet is right, there will be additional filming for the Hobbit beginning in May (or June?). I assume Gandalf will be there as well? If so, Tom and I would like to visit you. We haven't seen you in way too long and we have planned to go to New Zealand for quite some time now - now would be a good time to do it since we're both free at the moment.
Let me know what you think. I'm aware that you'll be busy with filming but maybe we can find the time for dinner?
Hope to see you soon,
