4:07 pm - Hello, Sailor!

towos
Hellooooo... Sailor!

This is 3 years, 3 YEARS after my last note. At times I forget that I have this account, and that it is better than anything on the net. Because you have to be very careful. Tred lightly. We live in another world now, not necessarily better, I would say worse, a litigious, divided, terrorific, selfie-ish world, where technology makes miracles and transforms them into disasters.
But hey, I am here, I am well, and this in itself is the best thing that could happen to me.
In other universes there is always music, there is always something that helps me cope with each single day, there are those whom I call CopePopes, images and stories that warm the soul. There is need of much soul-warming these days.

There are the Missing, those I miss every day of my life. And I am still deeply agnostic, so I do not have much hope of seeing them again in the aftermath.  People I used to know, people I used to be with, people who I never met but were in my life every day, the CopePopes of my life, people who have been taken away by what I survived.  My first CP succumbed to the Oblivion, and that was most difficult for me to learn. It broke my heart for the second time, in the horrific 2016. You know the first. Millions of people have had their lives changed and still mourn him after 1.10.16. I am only one of them.

When you look Reality straight in the face, the only thing you can do is Stay In The Now. The past brings you grief and melancholy, the future anguish and anxiety. The Now are the little joys and the latest CP sightings, the stories and the sagas, the sweet inner-joke moments, (my love, you give me courage, you save me from myself because you love me and accept me as I am). I still find myself insufferable most of the time. I am still very aware of every shortcoming, every something I am not - and will never be. Even if by now I should not care at all, because I have reached the invisibility state and status. And it is so relaxing. You feel not more isolated and inadequate than before, but now you are aware that no one cares, that no one really sees you.

Now we all know most of the inner thoughts of humanity, which used to be so mysterious and that we used to guess about all the time. Many people are still intolerant, (insert word or suffix)-ist or -phobic, hypocritical, disappointing. There is not much under the cape of mystery, after all.
Most people only care about themselves, what they do, what they eat, where they go, what their family does, what their pup does. Of course their opinions, but we all know that those are best left there. Stop worrying about other people hating you as much as you do.

There are still good people, kindred spirits, intelligent, compassionate persons, and that makes you believe that after all, people are still worth it. The Good Person With Their Heart in the Right Place, like CopePope number X, unfaßbar große Schöpfungswerk Meiner Seele.

4:13 pm - Nothing's Ever Forgotten ....

grondfic
Right in the midst of trying to write seven theatre/livestream reviews, I injudiciously pause (because I've been known to never-finish these things, y'know, and - worse - lose the drafts that are sitting on LJ marked 'private' amongst all the back-comments) in order to rhapsodise over Something Else Entirely:

'A Way through the Tangled Woods': Paganism & Witchcraft in the Golden Age of Children's tv
(Lecture by Dr John Callow at Treadwell's Occult Bookshop, 33 Store Street, London WC1 on Sat 15 October 2016)
Collapse )

Well, we'd been promised a bit about The Owl Service mini-series (1969) on the flier; but there was so much to say (and hear) about RoS that the Owls didn't get a look-in. Perhaps next time?

11:49 am - Fic: The Feint

rusty_armour


Title: The Feint
Author: Rusty Armour
Fandom: Robin of Sherwood
Characters: Sir Guy of Gisburne, Robert of Huntingdon, Tuck, Little John
Category: General, adventure
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,984
Summary: Some plans are more foolproof than others.
Spoilers: Brief nods to “The Witch of Elsdon” and “The Greatest Enemy” and more significant spoilers for “Herne’s Son,” Parts 1 & 2 and “The Time of the Wolf”.
Notes: This was written for Addie Faction’s RA Magazine. It was also written in, like, three days and I’m sure it shows. However, I’m hoping that at least the Guy Groupies will get some enjoyment out of it.

This takes place some time after “The Time of the Wolf”.

Disclaimer: This story is based on Richard Carpenter's series Robin of Sherwood. The characters are the property of Richard Carpenter, Robin May, Anthony Horowitz and the RoS production team.

11:47 am - Fic: The White Stag

rusty_armour
Title: The White Stag
Author: Rusty Armour
Fandom: Robin of Sherwood
Characters: Robert of Huntingdon, Herne, Nasir, Will Scarlet, Little John
Category: General, mystical
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1408
Summary: When Robin struggles to decipher his latest vision, he receives help from an unexpected source.
Spoilers: Slight allusion to “The Betrayal”. Otherwise, only references to the show in general.
Notes: This is a birthday present for karen9. I managed to finish the story on time this year because it’s much shorter. I hope karen9 enjoys it.

The idea for the white stag actually came from a synopsis of the Look-In comic strips 1984/25 – 1984/30 provided by Andrew Orton in Hooded Man: Volume Two. In this particular story (titled “The White Stag” by Orton), the outlaws come across a white stag in Sherwood that they try to protect. I loved the idea of the white stag (especially given its association with Herne the Hunter), so I decided to borrow one for this fic. Stole the title as well. *g*

This story takes place some time after “The Time of the Wolf”.

rusty_armour
Title: The Griffin
Author: Rusty Armour
Fandom: Robin of Sherwood
Characters: Robert of Huntingdon, Will Scarlet, Nasir, Tuck
Category: General, mystical
Rating: PG-13ish
Word Count: 5,963
Summary: Robin has started sleepwalking, but no one knows why. The only clue is the vision of a griffin.
Spoilers: Nothing specific. Mostly general spoilers for the series as a whole.
Notes: This is a present for karen9 to celebrate not only her birthday but her first RoS convention! :-D She’ll be attending The Hooded Man in May. Apologies for not being able to provide the whole story on the big day, karen9. It only took me about two months to deliver. *g*

This story takes place some time after “The Time of the Wolf”.

4:19 pm - Sad news - RIP Lewis Collins

grondfic
Lewis played Philip Mark in the RoS episode The Sheriff of Nottingham (first shown in 1986).

He was, of course best known as Bodie in The Professionals, which (last time I looked) still has an active fandom and recent fanfic.

Details here:

11:32 am - Fic Recs for Sheriff/Gisburne Series

rusty_armour
Just a quick heads up for fans of Gisburne and/or the Sheriff. Astrinde has been writing a wonderful series about these two characters. The stories are slash and fairly dark in nature, but well worth a read if you don't mind more adult material. If nothing else, these stories offer unique perspectives on episodes like "The Witch of Elsdon" and "The Sheriff of Nottingham". Anywaaaaaay, I've listed the stories below for anyone who might be interested:

Aim and Arrow

Devoir

Severance

The Inquiry

9:33 pm - Angharad Rees (Jennet of Elsdon)

grondfic
The Guardian reports that Angharad Rees, who played Jennet in The Witch of Elsdon (5/5/1984) has died of pancreatic cancer, aged 63.

Angharad was mainly known for playing Demelza in the long-running historical series Poldark in the late 1970s. We also recently came across her playing Celia in the BBC 1978 production of As You Like It (with a very young Helen Mirren as Rosalind).

Nothing's forgotten. Nothing's ever forgotten.

9:50 pm - You Can Now Store Your Fic on RoS YahooGroups!

herne24
This will be of interest to RoS fic writers more than anyone, but Karon has agreed to let people store their stories in the Files section on RoS YahooGroups. For that purpose, a folder called "RoS Fanfic" has been created. For those of you who are members of RoS YahooGroups, you can upload your stories as Word documents or save them as text files. The Files link can be found in the upper left-hand corner of the RoS YahooGroups home page.

I would be happy to upload fic files for any writers who would like to have their stories archived on RoS YahooGroups. I can also send Word docs to anyone who would prefer to upload their fic themselves. Feel free to contact me if you're interested in either option.
