(Guilty Pleasures)

Subject:Some Recent Entries
Posted by:ulyferal.
Time:9:02 am.
Mood: calm.
This is my version of first encounters of Anita Blake by the players.  One was a round robin, the other my first entry on my own on WWOMB.  Hope you like them.  I've never written Anita Black fics, only read them.  Just finished the last book out, Skin Trade.  It was cool and can't wait for her next Merry Gentry offer.


FIRST ENCOUNTERS WITH ANITA

MICAH

She’s shaking badly and doesn’t look good at all.  Elizabeth asked me to come and interview for the job of Nimir Raj but before I could actually discuss things with her, I learned this pard already had a Nimir Ra.....a human Nimir Ra! How could this be?

No time to ask questions as her bloody and shaking form is rushed into her home by the Master of the City and Ulfric. This female has powerful friends and I must be careful not to give myself away or get too involved with their politics.  My own cruel master would have me for breakfast if I dared tell these people the true reason I am here.

Instead I quickly offer my services and my pard’s in trying to save this female from dying.  As I take my turn laying with her, I can’t help but be mesmerized by her beauty and intrigued by what her scars could tell me about who she is.  What I do know for certain is she is a dangerous person. I’ve spoken to her pard and got a thumbnail idea of who she is and what she means to those around her.

It is a long night but she manages to survive.  Could she be the one to free us?  Dare I trust her to save us?  I press my body close to her sharing my heat to help her heal while my mind roils in turmoil.

I feel so drawn to her and I’m not sure why.  Her leopards are a mess.  I can feel how hurt they are......almost as bad as my own pard.  

What a pair we are......two dysfunctional pards.  I shiver suddenly as a strange premonition passes over me.  This woman could play a decisive role in my life if I let her or she could destroy what is left of my miserable life.  

Am I willing to take the risk?  My internal argument is interrupted when I feel her awaken and begin to try and figure out what is going on.  Her modesty is sweet but I know there is nothing sweet about her.  She is as dangerous as the pard she protects so fiercely.

I realize suddenly as I roll over and stare into her eyes the answer to my question is yes.


JEAN CLAUDE

I move quickly through the club I manage and out onto the street where a car is waiting for me. One of the wererats is my chauffeur for the night.  I climb in and order him to take me to the far side of town.  I settle back in my seat and brood.  My master is in an angry mood tonight and I dare not fail in my mission.

I stare listlessly at the passing scenery as I remember Nikolaos’ orders.  She wants me to pick up a person of interest and bring him back to her. She doesn’t tell me why.

Sighing, I frown at my reflection.  I chafe under the Master of St. Louis’ control but she was my chance to escape an even worse master.  I fled to the America’s to make a new life away from my Souer de sang, the terrible but beautiful Belle Morte. 

Though Nikolaos’ is cruel and vindictive, she is still easier to bear than the pretend love Belle offers her kiss.  Sex is her power and she wields it like a sword.  That is a more terrifying noose than anything Nikolaos’ might do to me.

As we pass the silent graves and near the entrance to the cemetery, I notice few cars just inside and a group of people standing to one side of a grave stone.  I feel my brows raise in curiosity.

‘Seems a zombie raising is scheduled for tonight.’ I muse then come to a decision.  “Driver, halt here for a moment,” I order.

Puzzled but obeying, the wererat slowed then stopped the car.

I roll my window down and watch the group.  I feel magic in the air and that draws me like a moth to a flame.  I open the door and step out.  Slowly, as if I’m being drawn by a thread, I walk to the entrance then slip behind the stones as I silently approach the group.

I do not want to warn them of my presence.  I walk until I’m about fifteen feet from the mesmerized humans then halt behind a tall mausoleum and move just enough to see but not be seen.

Standing before a grave and holding a very impressive knife is a small woman with flowing black hair.  Her face is intent on her ritual, raising the dead.  I realize I’m watching an animator at work.  I can feel her power from where I stand, it makes my skin shiver.
 
I am now as mesmerized as the humans and cannot look away as she beheads a chicken and walks her circle of power sprinkling its life blood.  The magic tightens around me as she closes the circle with a snap.  She calls in a strong, firm voice the person she is raising tonight. 

She does her work with seeming ease, her zombie able to speak within moments of taking her blood.  She is far more powerful than I have ever seen in a human.  I think perhaps she isn’t really as human as she appears.  Her power speaks to me in a way I’ve never felt before in my long life.

A kernel of an idea begins to form in my mind as I quietly slip away before she senses me.  She is certainly powerful enough to detect me I’m certain.  As I climb back into the car and order the driver to continue on to our rendevous, my mind works on a way to bring that powerful woman closer to me.  I feel she is the key to changing my life’s fortunes.  I don’t know who she is but I will make it my business to find out.

Subject:Sanguinarias: a vampire RP
Posted by:bloodoaks.
Time:6:35 pm.
some are born to sweet delight,
some are born to endless night. -William Blake

In very recent years, Japanese scientists have invented a 'synthetic blood' that is capable of fully sustaining a vampire's diet. Sort of like a vampiric 'slim fast'; the drink, now mass marketed under the name TruBlood, has allowed many vampires to come out of the shadows and into mainstream society.

Now that humans are no longer an entrée, vampires have "come out of the coffin" to demand their place in society complete with equal rights and citizenship. Religious leaders and government officials around the world have chosen their sides and a full-on political war is in progress.

Feeling that they have sat back and watched these battles long enough, many powerful and ancient vampires begin to migrate toward the lush and decadent city of New Orleans, one of the country's strongest vampiric hot spots, where they are drawn by the call of their brethren to meet and discuss what these changes may mean for immortal "life" as they know it. But what will come of such an influx of power and what will it mean for the Vampire Rights Movement? Some are willing to give up the lifeblood that fuels their existence in order to join human society and others will try and take back the night. Which side will you be on?


Sanguinarias is a (limited) cross-fandom roleplay loosely based upon HBO's True Blood.

Subject:Anita Blake characters?
Posted by:mizugameza.
Time:10:50 pm.
Ever wanted to try your hand playing one of the characters from Anita Blake? Maybe Edward, Jean-Claude, Jason or even Anita's old friend? Chaos Unraveled is a multi-fandom roleplaying game that's looking to add to the current list of interesting characters within the game. We'd really love to see more characters, so if anyone's interested in roleplaying as one of the characters from Anita Blake, why not check us out? We accept characters from other stories, however.

The Ultimate Chessboard: Chaos Unraveled

Come take part in the eternal struggle.

But newcomers are always welcome after that date! People who want to join afterwards and are afraid of being overwhelmed and not knowing what's going on - one, that's perfectly fine, since no one's expecting your character to, and two, the moderator will explain the plot up to that point for you if you ask! - don't worry!

Subject:Help me find missing comics
Posted by:eure_maum.
Time:11:10 pm.
Okay guys, I just started collecting the Anita Blake comic book. There is only one freakin comic book store in the town I'm at so I was able to get the current series from volume 6 to volume 10.  Anyone know where I can get 1 through 5 at through like online sources? Also got the two volume special series so I think I have almost all the comic books for Anita Blake that has been released except for 1 through 5. Anyone got any ideas or can help me find them? Thanks!

There is a new community for fans of Laurell K. Hamilton. An all encompassing community for all her work, not just Anita or Merry.

Once we get enough members there will be icon/background contests and maybe trivia as well.

So I just got Strange Candy the other day. Unimpressed. That is all I have to say.
Well...not quite. :-P
The only one I liked was Here There Be Dragons. I thought that was really interesting and would love to see it as a series. Other than that....they were mediocre fantasy stories. They weren't terrible, but they were not good. Agree? Disagree?

AND I CAN'T FREAKING WAIT FOR MISTRAL'S KISS TO COME OUT!!!!

Subject:INVITATION
Posted by:kingofthesluagh.
Time:1:07 am.
I would like to invite everyone into a forum-type roleplay I just started. It is a MEREDITH GENTRY RP and in need of most of the major characters (with only Sholto, Frost and Doyle taken). Brand new, don´t miss your chance :) I will gladly answer any questions you might have, otherwise you can read the rules on the forum, so just shortly: You can grab any character that´s still free, or make up your own. You can play a non-fey, however only after you´ve claimed a fey character, too. The game is rated but I guess you all can take mature contest, otherwise you wouldn´t be here :) Leave a message on my journal, or join and poke me on the forum, or write me here:

Subject:The Presence of the Past~Chapter 1
Posted by:aener.
Time:1:46 am.
This has been ready for a long time now, but for some reason I haven't put it up here. Well now I am.

The Presence of the Past~Chapter 1Collapse )

(Guilty Pleasures)

Subject:The Presence of the Past~ Prologue
Posted by:aener.
Time:1:32 am.
Mood: bored.
I've begun a new story since the other is defunct, at least for now. This new one is in the Anita Blake Universe but is all about Jean-Claude:

The Presence of the Past
By: Aener

Summary: Anita is away from home on a business trip and Jean-Claude is left on his own. Trouble abounds when a figure from his past makes an appearance in St. Louis. Can Jean-Claude survive this unexpected and unwanted visit or will he drown in the sorrows of his history as the past transforms into the present?

Disclaimer: I don’t own anything but the story plot. Everything else, recognized characters, situations, and places, are copyrighted to Laurell K. Hamilton and I am using it only for personal writing enrichment and educational purposes as well as to entertain. This is a tribute of sorts to Mrs. Hamilton’s work. I am not receiving payment for this.

Author’s Note: I keep having a dream with this plot in mind. JC is my second favorite Anita Blake character, after Edward. I wanted to do something specifically for him and involving his mysterious past. There will be spoilers up to and including Danse Macabre. However, most of the minor characters in Incubus and Danse won’t be mentioned. There will at least be references to rape and heavy violence. This is not a happy fic.

All the foreign languages found in this story are from babelfish and if there is something wrong please tell me because I don’t want to offend someone over something like their language.

I encourage feedback of all kinds as long as it is constructive in some way. Tell me what’s right, tell me what’s wrong, tell me if you think this story is a lost cause. Thank you!

Now on to the story!

Time:5:28 pm.
Hi, I'm Jessica and I've been a Laurell K. and Anita Blake fan for about 6 years now. I really loved the first Anita books that I read at my library, and I've followed the series religiously. I've also read the Merry Gentry books, and I recently finished Nightseer, Laurell's debut novel.
Some opinions (and spoilers from DM and Nightseer!!) about her booksCollapse )
So, that's what I have to say. :) Nice to meet everyone, and I hope to learn a lot through this community.

I got to see and hear Laurell in Oak Brook, IL last night! Unfortunately, her reading did have a few spoilers in it and she kindly apologized for that. She actually remembered who my fiance and I were and asked how wedding plans are progressing. What a wonderful person. At least Mike (fiance) knew who she was this time!

I have my brand-new copy of Danse Macabre personalized by Herself and I'll start reading it as soon as I get home from work!
