My apologies to Amadi, who has the patience of a saint. I was supposed to put up a post that we finished in November of last year after months and months and MONTHS of me dragging ass with the tags. Anyway, it's not showing up on the Est page, but it's here. Hemsworth and Zoe.

Update on Bunny @ 12:21 pm

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

NPC claims put in @ 01:27 pm

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.
Backstory woes @ 07:19 am
, posting in
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.

I'm not comparing myself to Shirley Bassey @ 03:21 am
(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.

Email to Ian McKellen @ 09:45 am
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,
