books! contests! books!  

I have received in the mail a small box of A FANTASY MEDLEY and a large box of THE PRETENDER’S CROWN. The TPC contest is still open for about four more hours, so if you want to cast THE QUEEN’S BASTARD as a way to potentially win a copy, you should hasten to do that.

Many people said “Gosh, I could do this with the Old Races or the Walker Papers”, and so, because there will be no more Negotiator books, I will give you the opportunity to win a copy of A FANTASY MEDLEY, which has a Janx & Daisani story in it, by casting the Negotiator trilogy. My favorite cast list gets a copy of the anthology. Major characters: Margrit Knight, Alban Korund, Grace O’Malley, Janx, Daisani, Kaimana, Cole, Cameron, Tony. Bonus points for casting any of the following: Margrit’s parents, Chelsea, Russell, Cara, Tariq, Biali, Malik, Ausra, Kate, Ursula, Sarah, Hajnal.

It isn’t necessary to cast all of them. It’s not even necessary to cast most of them. Just have fun with it. :) I’ll close the contest a week from now, at about noon Eastern time on Tuesday April 14th.

oOo! I want that A FANTASY MEDLEY (Darn shipping costs to Canada).

Okay *rubs hands together* I don't remember too many of the physical descriptions, so you'll just have to let a bit of that slide and settle for essence of character.

*wibbles just a little bit* No more... Sad....

And I'd love to cast them but I'm horrible at it. Really just... awful. I rarely get good pictures of characters in my head.
kitmizkit on April 7th, 2009 11:40 am (UTC)
I never do, but I think it's fun to see what other people say. :)

I have vague hopes of doing an Old Races anthology at some point. I'm thinking of running a second contest wherein people suggest short story ideas and I, uh, steal them. :)
Lady Doomlithera on April 7th, 2009 11:42 am (UTC)
I'm more than happy to give ideas to people who can actually DO things with them.

So long as you don't go all Piers Anthony on us, needing to stick an appendix at the end of each book listing all the "contributors".

On the other hand, he did sell a lot of books that way....

Take Two
DAMMIT. Lost my proto list. :P Do over!

---

I already have a copy of A FANTASY MEDLEY on its way to ME, but since I had someone spring to mind for me immediately for Magrit, I decided, what the hell.

Margrit Knight - Monica Raymund

Alban Korund - Dolph Lundgren (I'm dating myself, aren't I. :)

Grace O’Malley - Annie Lennox

Janx - Jackie Early Haley (I just loved him as a red-headed Rorschach). Or if you're looking for someone older and Asian, François Chau.

Daisani - Aidan Gillen (IMDB)

Kaimana - Ron Darling (IMDB)

Tony - Daniel Sunjata

Cara - Eliza Dushku

Chelsea - Ling Bai

Malik - Oded Fehr

I wish I could cast Cole and Cameron, but I simply don't have a strong enough mental image of their characters. Meh.

(I'm having obssessive-compulsive disorder over this. Hee. :)

*laughs* But I'm loving the OCD!

Re: Take Two
You would. :P :)

Fortunately (for me), I think I've run out of ideas!

Re: Take Two
I know it's after the cut-off, but I DON'T CARE. :)

(ETA) Malik: Ghassan Massoud (IMDB)

I lied. I think Massoud would make a better Malik and Oded Fehr a better Tarik. And now I'm probably spelling the character's name wrong since I don't have it up in front of me.

Does hair color have to match up perfectly? Because I have a few people in mind for Janx, they would just have to do some sort of dye-job.
kitmizkit on April 7th, 2009 01:21 pm (UTC)
Oh, no. Even my own idea for Janx isn't a redhead. :)

Yay! I'm sort of going by who I think would best be able to play the parts, as opposed to hair/eye color. Bad me!
kitmizkit on April 7th, 2009 04:59 pm (UTC)
No, no, that makes perfect sense. :)

Through the magic of computers, it no longer matters what your hair or eye colors are. Skin will probably be next.

Oh, and I love the icon. Another member of the "Pluto will *always* be a planet to me" club! :)

This is quite true. Ahhh, colored contacts.

And yes! Pluto was always my favorite. I don't think I'll ever truly get over the demotion. I have to return the icon-love! I can't seem to get sick of Doctor Horrible.
Brianlogrusboy on April 14th, 2009 09:11 am (UTC)
Poor Pluto! Bad enough it was always getting mixed up with Mickey Mouse's dog. Now it doesn't even get to be a planet any more. Breaks my heart, it does.

And you're a Horribleist too? Crap! I'm going to have to friend you, aren't I?
Big Ferretbigferret on April 7th, 2009 03:28 pm (UTC)
I wish I was creative enough to come up with some of these!

I like what is here so far!

My mind just seems awfully strange like this...

Margrit Knight -- Naomie Harris

Alban -- I don't get it. I keep getting stuck at David Boreanaz. I'm not really happy with that though. Urgh?

Janx -- Cillian Murphy

Daisani -- Dylan Moran

Grace O' Malley -- Kristen Bell

Kaimana-- Drawing a blank, sorry.

Cole-- Chris Lowell

Cameron-- Jessica Szohr

Tony-- Jeffrey Donovan

Margrit's Mother -- Adjoa Andoh

Cara-- Azura Skye

If I wake up before noon, I'll see if I can think of anyone else.
