calliopes_pen: (lost_spook Dracula's brides)
I am truly beyond thrilled with all that I received for [community profile] fandom_stocking this year.

To sum up, I received:

-Two beautiful banners/book covers from [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook, for the Yuletide story I wrote for her, as well as two icons (and two others to share because they’re fantastic) for Dracula (1968). I’ll see if I can put the second banner in without wrecking anything on Ao3 once I figure out the coding and upload it elsewhere. I'm not sure about creating a third chapter over there just to show them off, but it's an option.

-17 Supergirl icons from [personal profile] medie, and 2 Supergirl related icons from [personal profile] tarlanx.
-3 Dark Shadows icons from [personal profile] liadtbunny.
-A great Methos centered Highlander drabble from [personal profile] misbegotten.
-A book recommendation (which I’ll track down soon) from [personal profile] john_amend_all.
-A massive helping of book recommendations from [personal profile] rebecca_selene. I will be tracking down a large amount of them, if not all of them, in all likelihood.
-Links to Halloween focused stuff from [personal profile] valarltd
-Happy New Year from [profile] falcon_hours, [personal profile] knowmefirst and [personal profile] twinsarein.

I’m uploading as many icons as I can to Dreamwidth, and saving others so I can switch them out at another date if I want. To all that are on my circle/friends list and provided something, thank you again.

I’ll look through the collection further on Ao3 in a little while.
calliopes_pen: (54 IJ Edith silhouette books)
Yuletide is coming earlier than expected this year. Nominations begin on September 9th; sign-ups begin on October 1st.

I’m currently watching numerous episodes of the original Dark Shadows, after stumbling across four DVD sets purchased in 2003, but never opened. I’m filling in the gaps by watching what has been uploaded to Youtube by various people. I rewatched all of the 1991 version for the Into A Bar story. (Which is sort of still in progress, but on hold for right now as I work on a bit of a plot issue.)

I know that I will definitely nominate Crimson Peak. The story I wrote last year was so much fun for me to write, even if it grew to almost impossible lengths and became rather dark. I will likely nominate Dark Shadows (1991), and hope that someone else nominates the 60’s version of the show.

My 'Read/Watch Before Yuletide' list is rather long, but here are the highlights.

✔Penny Dreadful (found the series on Putlocker)
-The Conjuring 2 (2016)
-Kolchak: The Night Stalker (the original series; I think I spotted it on Youtube)
-Insidious (2010) (all three movies)
✔The Skeleton Key (2005)
-Captain Kronos Vampire Hunter (1974)
✔The Innocents (1961)
✔Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (2010)
✔We Are Still Here (2015)
✔The Spiral Staircase (1945)
✔The Woman In Black (2012)
-Prince of Darkness (1987)
✔The Turn of the Screw, by Henry James
✔The Haunting of Hill House, by Shirley Jackson

(A checkmark is for my own sake, as I get through each on the list.)
calliopes_pen: (negiramenofdoom Dark Shadows cliffs)
Well, that certainly took a dramatic turn. I was trying to write the Bar Ficathon story, and seem to have fallen over an actual plot, instead of just Edith and Victoria sitting in a bar talking about ghosts, with Alan wedged in there for his continued support. The Dark Shadows portion seems to be overwhelming the Crimson Peak part and traumatizing those characters, but that’s okay. They fit together nicely.

And there goes Angelique, still body hopping in 1991, seeking more vengeance and dropping revelations on people in an oddly disturbing moment for everyone that formed by accident. Alan and Edith just wanted a quiet night before they tried to get back to their own time. At least nobody will be falling off of Widows’ Hill? At least Edith doesn't have a Collins in her family tree?
calliopes_pen: (oraclegreen Drummond Dark Shadows)
Humbert Allen Astredo passed away on February 19th, at the age of 86. May he rest in peace. To fans of the original version of Dark Shadows, he will be best remembered as Nicholas Blair. That warlock was one of my favorite characters on the show; Astredo also played Charles Dawson, as well as Evan Hanley during his time on the series. He appeared in House of Dark Shadows as Dr. Forbes.
calliopes_pen: (taibhrigh hear the Ood song)
Abe Vigoda has passed away at the age of 94. He died in his sleep. May he rest in peace. I have never seen The Godfather due to a lack of interest, so I mainly know him from Barney Miller. I only got around to watching that show in the last year or so--it’s on Antenna TV and FamilyNet almost every day.

I didn’t realize it when I first watched the original 60’s Dark Shadows when it aired on The Sci-Fi Channel in the 90’s, but he also appeared (in two different roles) there, too: He was Ezra Braithwaite and Otis Greene.
calliopes_pen: (inthegiggleloop Victoria Winters revival)
Yuletide fandom nominations are closing in less than 48 hours. For House of Dark Shadows (1970), I nominated Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, Barnabas Collins and Maggie Evans. Is there anyone in particular someone might want to see added into the fourth slot?

(Victoria Winters and Angelique are out, as neither appeared in the film.)
calliopes_pen: (a_bit_chaotic Nosferatu)
Since I just opted to rewatch House of Dark Shadows (1970), I now have yet another possible fandom that I want to see get a Yuletide nomination. For someone that may not have the time to rewatch all the episodes from the original series, it’s a good alternative universe.

So now I’m torn between what won the poll—Suspiria—and House of Dark Shadows. Whichever I choose, the other will be nominated next year. Either way, it’s a horror related fandom that gets the slot, so there’s that.
calliopes_pen: (taibhrigh hear the Ood song)
Sam Hall has passed away at the age of 93. May he rest in peace. He was a writer for the original Dark Shadows, House of Dark Shadows, and Night of Dark Shadows, as well as the short-lived 1991 version of the series.
calliopes_pen: (gabenut Chuck rolling pin use it)
(Posting yesterday’s and today’s now, while I have a few minutes between helping with gathering everything we'll need to take to Nashville and locating a hotel that’s actually got a vacancy outside of just Thursday—-and doesn’t have bed bugs. The Bed Bug Registry is incredibly useful with that last bit.

Thank you to everyone that's sent their well wishes.)
