thanks to one of my rp friends here (not sure which url he’s using right now so i’m just not going to mention — some of you know red, so i’ll name drop), i have the girl with the dragon tattoo graphic novel. i’ve read all the books several times and both versions of the films, and while my interpretation is much more fincher-based, you can expect some graphic novel elements once i’ve finished. i’ll be making icons of the artwork for future use.
[ He doesn’t question her, doesn’t even think about asking her what was so urgent that she just needed to use a phone. Mikael knows that she’ll tell him, if he needs to know. This, of course, doesn’t mean he wouldn’t like it better if she just told him. ]
[ Unlike her, he does move his gaze away from the work at hand to look at her. Even nods lightly, though she can’t possibly see him with how focused she is with what she’s doing. ]
[ She sets the ringer on and pockets the phone, before finally glancing at him, lips pressed together in a thin line. She didn’t know how to be amiable — it wasn’t in her blood — but she was making an attempt, at least. ]
[ So she goes to the pot on the stove, which sits warm, but not hot; after switching the appliance on again, she faces him, arms crossed as she waits. ]
[ Anything new being the question, of course. She nods at the papers in his hands. ]
Where you can find me if I’m not here:
I am excluding my personal blog from this, because if I’m there, I am probably not in the mood to write. however, I want it to be known that these are all of my blogs, so that if you see me active on any which one, you are welcome to nudge me or ask about the status of replies. The ones that I am actually most active on are marked with an asterisk ( * ); others are listed because I do sometimes have muse for them or am planning story ideas for those specific blogs, and they are not completely inactive, like other blogs I have. So, without further ado:
If I add any other blogs in the future, they will be to this post (which I will reblog). I realize I have a multitude of other blogs laying around (e.g. thecalltoserve, ihaveasolution)… But you can consider them completely inactive and on perma-hiatus.
As always, I’m really excited to get interactions going, so don’t be shy to hit me on any of the blogs above if you’d like to write something.
Edit: I’m putting a * beside most active blogs; the other two listed are SEMI-ACTIVE (currently they display no active threads, but I’m working on plots… ish).
I’ve removed a couple of them because the plots on there have dropped, and I don’t have much interest in being on those blogs, but if you’d like to write on any of my accounts (or find out what characters I have in my “arsenal,” so to speak), let me know. Thanks!
[ She knocks on the door with a firmness, but it’s not too loud. She doesn’t aim to disrupt, after all, simply to see an old friend. ]
What do you think you’re doing?
[ A beat. ]
A telephone. No reception.
[ He hums, then throws her his phone. ]
Use mine. I’ve got some reception.
[ She doesn’t say a word, silent as usual, but her eyes narrow like a hawk’s as nimble fingers, dressed with rings, tap out the digits on his phone at rapid speed. It’s not a phone call. Not yet. The message is simple, a series of numbers and letters that the receiving party will understand; once she gets her reply, she’ll make a call. ]
[ She doesn’t look up, despite the offer, and her voice is toneless and flat, but the sentiment is there. It’s the best she can hope to offer. ]
Do you need something?
[ A beat. ]
A telephone. No reception.
[ Shrugs. ]
[ She pours him some from the pot on the stove, before sitting back down on the table’s surface, instead of the chair, resuming her munching on the sandwich between her hands. ]
You are well?
Don’t worry. Your emails were all junk.
Good, I feel less bad about never checking the dumb thing.
Something useful could come up. Occasionally.
