I created my new blog at wordpress Mending My Own Pen. You'll find there interpretations of Pride and Prejudice and other Jane Austen's writings, fanfiction, adaptations, and information about the Regency era.

Call on me!

Darcy's Sword

April 12th, 2008 (04:34 pm)

current mood: geeky

Sometimes I wonder about the strangest things, like recently - Why Darcy fences with a foil or epee instead of a sabre? Of course I know the answer, but still it just feels wrong. Like an adult man playing with a toy train.

Pride and Prejudice Icons Library

January 7th, 2007 (06:23 pm)

current location: Warsaw
current mood: busy
current song: silence

I'm so tired with looking through icons all over lj, and not knowing where I saw what etc, that I decided to make a library with all the links I find. Let's hope it helps.

It's only beginning, I'll be adding new links as I go.

anothersoapbox * 10 1995 and more 2005

iconzicons * very funny from 1995

waiting4morning * among others some comics ones

netherfield_x * both 1995 and 2005

peachydivaicons * 1995

shmarollynn * lots of great 1995

sunsetsylvia * 1995 and some other firths

rich_desire * 1995 among others the one I'm using

eikonographia * 1995

gossymer * many 1995 bases and some funny animated icons

xbellaxdivax * 1995

summer_kisses89 * a few 1995

waxesnostalgic * some 1995 and 2005 and Regency

carnivalofsong * 5 x 1995

Perhaps someone as frustrated as I will find it helpful as well. Don't forget to credit the authors if you use them. We owe them!

P.S. If I included here someone who for any reason isn't happy about it, please let me know, and I'll delete the link.

I've just found this video clip with Valmont on youtube. I love Firth as Darcy, but oh boy! as Valmont he's at his yummiest!

Ok, it's the first thing I thought I could post here. It's a song from a genre called sung poetry - a very popular one where I live. It was originally sung by Marek Grechuta, who died recently, so here his song performed by Anna Maria Jopek and Grzegorz Turnau. I attached English translation below.

In entwined woods of hands and legs
We whisper those saint words
That were once whispered by a young god
To his unimaginable goddess

In the red glow of mournful wants
We flame like torches
And we fall down into heaven, dreaming
Innocently and kindly

In mournful coolness of known lips
We look for soothing
Listening to our pulse’s cooling down
And the meanings are mistook

It’s nothing, it’s nothing, it’s just the meanings are mistook

As long as the demon of sadness sleeps
Long live young desires
As long as life smoulders in us
As long as there is money

I was inspired by the ongoing Bad Sex Scene challenge on Hyacinth Gardens. ;)

I do not really know how I might use this journal, but I thought it's always better to make the entry than not.
