No one has attempted to bribe me, either.

Perhaps they know we're far too principled to respond to such things.

*clears throat* Though I suppose, it... wouldn't be wrong to just maybe have a look and see what bribes would be offered if I was one to be bribed. Which I'm not, of course. *cough*

I only offer things to those who are willing to be bribed.

Although there's an old dream I suppose I haven't told phantom about yet...

But that's actually true, now that I think about it, I am genuinely puzzled. I understand I even sort of dismissed the possibility of bribing me, but how comes nobody tried to bribe the phantom? Granted, it is like trying to bribe Robespierre, only... never mind.

It shows how well we know one another (or how well trained we are?), that when Maria says "dream" I immediately experience a shift in hormone levels....

And yes, the incorruptible indeed. For I am far more likely to be the corrupter.

I think it has to do with the number of people being present. Two and two is not a good combination. Though I don't think it so nerve-wracking, but then again, neither of those was a favourite I was trying to save.

And ph, I think you mean "Aganzir"

Haha, in most cases it's appropriate.

I'll leave the dream till another time, then. If there ever is one, I mean.

You guys are ridiculous. This is worse than the last 5 minutes of a werewolf game with only a quarter of the votes in.

As the intellectual and educated elite say, ROFL.

Seriously, I am very sorry for making you traumatised by that image, sally. Though it was really the phantom who first mentioned Kristen Stewart.

It was very much like that indeed. Now I know why in WW everyone is allowed to have only one vote, and why even retractions are frowned upon.

I think the worst was happening only during the last, what, seven hours or so. That's about as much as I've been around.

Sure. And for that I have apologized. But the starting point was provided by the phantom.

Well, I woke up a bit under 12 hours ago to a massive number of votes too. Then it stalled, when I was around, and when I left it got crazy again.

And of course we all knew that you would know. Says something about all of us, doesn't it?

The Kristen Steward idea is interesting given Thuringwethil's possible association with Lśthien. Just sayin'.

Edit: I'm aware of the typo, but it maxes my Tolkien geek credentials, right?

Yes, I was absent basically all day yesterday, so I was shocked to see the amount, and today it's been mostly the same, only I managed to be around especially around the last part...

No! Because now I can scare Sally further by the image of an old, ugly, bat-winged actress with long fingernails eating cherry tomatoes in an utterly disgusting way...

Like Denethor in the movies?

And, speaking of Thuringwethil's image, what do you think of these?

That was exactly what I was thinking.

And this would actually be quite nice Thuringwethil, though I am not sure if it fits, also, hmm, mood-wise. Also, mostly I would imagine her with bat wings rather than feathered (but that makes these pictures more interesting, as an innovative idea). Actually, what are these? Because I am sure I have seen them somewhere very recently. (Anyway, the second one looks also a bit like Agan. ) But in general, back to the Kirsten Steward (ah! And this was honestly a typo from me, so apparently it works that way) idea, if you made these much older and uglier, it would be sort of like what I was talking about.

Me too. Just these are meant to be birds, not bats.

These are pictures of the birds from Slavic mythology. The second one is the bird Alkonost, and the first is either Alkonost or Sirin depending on who you ask; it's a fragment of Vasnecov's painting of both of them. There are two versions about these birds that I know of: one, that Alkonost is the bird of joy, and Sirin sings joyful songs that lure you into darkness and death (so she's the dark one). The other is that Sirin sings of happiness and Alkonost of sorrow (and also, that Alkonost makes a great storm when she flies above - the reasoning behind the second picture). So depending on which version you follow, the bird in the first picture is either Alkonost or Sirin. Here's the full painting:

EDIT: I did some research, and the second picture is actually Vasnecov's painting of Gamayun, not Alkonost. My bad.

A-ha. Now I know where I saw them. About a month ago, I was at an exhibition where they had the original paintings of these, and some more...

*shudder*

Seriously, I think I'm scarred for life. And scared for life.

Make the birds go away!!

(I was thinking Thuringwethil was something more like this. But perhaps able to shift into something more attractive when in non-flight non-attack mode.)

Can't see the resemblance. It's just because she's blond.

Anyway I like Vasnetsov a lot, but I must admit my image of Thuringwethil is closer to phantom's.

Nope, it's the face. The mouth, the eyes plus eyebrows, the expression. Only she should have different nose. But otherwise, the first impression is totally you.
