Announcement of return.

I’m back.

Greetings! I have just returned from my two-week-long visit to my computer-deprived family, and want to note that after the next screencap entry (“Wood Elves”, with caps from the EE scene plus two poems), the screencap project will be going on sabbatical. It isn't over, but it will be taking a break. This is just an update for fans of the series.


Before I go on, I want to try and work on some other things that have been put aside. Since July I've been trying to write an extended feedback to the author of a well-loved, well-known Frodo fanfic. I think it's about time I finished it. But you know me, I always have a lot to say and take a long time to say it (call me Treebeard). I also have found some paintings that might make good Frodo manips. I haven't done an "Art Travesty" in a very long while. I might forget how to do it! Even more, I want to write. I want to pick up where I left off in my never-finished Frodo saga. I haven't updated it in over a year, having got carried away making the screencap posts (which are so much easier to tackle). If I take advantage of my renewed free time (my full-time job ended just before my trip), maybe I can recover my momentum. Even if it is only for myself (by the time I ever finish it!), I'd love to bring it to its conclusion. I've got my fingers crossed, and have asked Muse-Frodo to put in a fresh appearance, preferably stripped for action.

Oh welcome back, Mech...

Even though your mighty Screencap Project is practically done, I'm glad that you are going to be using your journal for something else...we could all use a few Art Travesties !!
A little while ago, you were talking in terms of closing your journal, as there was, apparently, nothing else to say, but I have to say that it would be a shame to lose you from Live Journal...

So get Muse-Frodo to get his arse into gear and stop messing about !!! He hasn't put in an appearance for simply ages...tell him that we all miss him dreadfully, and would appreciate it enormously if he could start amusing you once more...

( By the way, did you watch that costume drama, "The Tudors" when it was screened a while back ? The one starring Jonathan Rhys Myers as Henry VIII...
Well, if you did, I have done a piece about the casting of the various characters in my journal, which you might find interesting...)

Wendy! Hi! Thanks for the welcome. And thanks for expressing interest in the Art Travesties. I've pretty much got through all the paintings I've ever found that would suit, but there are a few left in the halls of art, it seems. The problem typically is that even if I find an image online, it's too small to use for making a manip.

I'll have to catch up on your costume entry. I read a few reviews of The Tudors, but haven't seen it playing anywhere. Maybe I missed it?

Believe me, Mechtild, it won't be only for yourself!

This is one person who would love to see the completion of your story! :)

Welcome back Lass! I hope you enjoyed yourself and that you found much to be thankful for over the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Oooohhhh! Goody Art Travesties. :)

I second Maewyn's comment:
You will not be writing only for yourself.

I have been looking forward to hearing you say that you would love to bring your story to its completion.

*Group-hug*

Welcome back! Ooooh, new Frodo Art Travesties would be glorious.

Thank you, Shirebound! Have you been writing more about "The Frodo Franchise"? I'll have to speed-read through the f-list. :)

Welcome back, Mechtild!

I miss your posts!

More Frodo Art Travesties, yay!

I'll read more Frodo/Rosamunda if there's lots of really hot sex.

*is horribly shallow* ;)

Which well-known fic are you writing feedback on (if you don't mind saying, of course)?
Mechtild
mechtild at 2007-11-30 15:07 (UTC) (Link)
Actually, I'd rather not say, Pearl. I'm not embarrassed to say or anything, but I don't want what is a simple announcement post to turn into a discussion of this fic (well, really it's an LotR-sized novel). I'll send you an email when I get back from errands. You've read it for sure. :)

Dear Horribly Shallow,

Regret to inform you there will likely be less, not more, hot sex.

But seriously, Pearl, I didn't expect you back as a reader anyway. You said after Ch. 12 that you didn't want to go on because it sounded as though it was getting sadder, and so it will and must. Not that there won't still be plenty of chapters with a light mood to come, since they won't yet have parted, but it's inevitable, given canon, that their ending, and the story's ending, will not be "happy". I hope it still will have a note of joy-in-spite-of-sadness, and hope, but a subdued, equivocal, Tolkien-esque sort of one.

Thanks for the welcome back! :)

Welcome back!! Hope you had a great 2 weeks - although it would be so hard for me to be deprived of computer for 2 weeks!!

I look forward to any of your creative endeavors - enjoy whatever you work on!!

The visit went well, Frolijah Fan. Thank you for asking. :) And thanks for the kind words of support!

I just hope my new "free time" doesn't get *completely* swallowed up by holiday crunch! (I'm sure you know all about that. *g*) But thanks for the encouraging words, Mews.

I selfishly count on you to decorate my friends page with Frodo's beauty FOREVER!!!

and have asked Muse-Frodo...fresh appearance, preferably stripped for action.

uhhmmmm yes. Inspiration noted. Got any of that to send spend around?

Muse-Frodo is inexhaustible when it comes to his inspirational *issue*. The difficulty is getting him to drop by to produce it.

I'll send him along if he stays here long enough to deliver the message, Alyon!

I'm really looking forward to your Frodo story!!

Thanks, Sam's Star. I've been working on the story for [what seems like] ages. It won a third place in the MEFA's last year, in the WiP category, but I haven't written a new chapter since then, letting myself get thoroughly sidetracked by my ongoing screencap project.

I am not sure you would be interested in it, however, Sam's Star. The love scenes are too explicit for readers of gen (if that's you), while those who enjoy Frodo erotica tend to read only slash, and this story isn't [slash]. But thanks for expressing interest!

I'll miss the screencap posts but I can understand that you need to take a break and that there are other things that had to wait almost too long. I hope you'll be successful in your manipping and writing and I'm looking forward to seeing you post some of it! :)

*hugs*

Thanks for the good wishes, Frodosweetstuff! A beautiful holiday time to you!
