I'll get it started with what is, I believe my first vignette. Good excuse to start.

The only way I can explain this one is to resite part of the poem that inspired this.

From the book The Adventures of Tom Bombadil(Tolkien). Page 17 poem#2 ...

Little bird sat on a twig. 'Whillo, Tom! I heed you.
I've a guess, I've a guess where your fancies lead you.
Shall I go, shall I go, bring him word to meet you?'

'No names, you tell-tale, or I'll skin and eat you,
babbling in every ear things that doen't concern you!
If you tell Willow-man where I've gone, I'll burn you,
roast you on a willow-spit. That'll end your prying!'

:shock: :lol:

Interesting vignette CAI.

That bird in the tree looks quite menacing.
If it tries anything, Tom can use his oar and knock it away!
I like how he's floating downstream in that wooden tub.
I always wanted to do something like that in real life.
Very cool!

I will not lose control of myself. Not tonight. Not again.

To calm the Beast, I walk, seeking the company of the kine lest my fellow Cainites arouse my ire. The fools! The tyrant Alexander is gone from this so-called Grand Court, but we continue to play the roles he set for us. We scheme against the Artisan Queens and the Warlords of Saxony and England. We delude ourselves into thinking we are invincible while we lurch toward our own destruction.
At least here, among the thieves, traders and washerwomen of Paris, I am away from such hubris. Let my noble-blooded fellows come here and see the life they so foolishly have abandoned. They speak of duty and destiny, but they are but automatons of tyranny. Feudal oaths run both ways, and the king who doesn´t honour his subjects is bound to fall. Prince Alexander, though thrice removed from Caine himself, could not stand without the support of his vassals. Now, his successor repeats his mistakes.
This is where we must find our inspiration, our life. The Embrace has deadened our hearts, but it need not have closed our eyes. While we war and rage, these lowly men and women live lives of passion and community. An ember of that still lives in our dead hearts, it is up to us to stoke it. But they scoff, call us idealists or even deluded madmen. They pray to Caine for guidance. They ride to battle to prove their mastery. They rage like wild animals. All the while, they forget that they were born to life and treat those who were their brothers as nothing but-
There. He seems so out of place. Bearing arms and walking tall in the midst of the huddled workers. They fear the darkness, and he relishes in it. he does not breathe, and he wears clothes to light to hold back the night´s chill. Sir Vincent´s flesh is already cold of course, for he cares nothing for the living.
He sees a redheaded whore on the stewhouse steps, and I can all but hear his Beast growl. He wishes to sate his refined blood-hunger. But this is my domain, and unlike most, I take the welfare of the herd seriously.
I approach from behind, my skin warm like a living woman´s, my chest heaving in and out an unnecessary but welcome breath. He never sees me until it is too late.
I forget control and indulge in justice.

- Dark Ages: Vampire

These are my second vignettes and I must say that I´m really pleased with them. They are definitely better than my dreadful MOC the admins entries at least :P

It´s also the first time I tried SNOT and I must say that it worked out quite well. Should have used brown for the street but I didn´t have the pieces so black had to do. This is also the first time I have used fleshies and I must say that they make perfect vampires... now I need to get more of them :twisted:

Anyways, here are the deepies:

Both vigs together

The "villain", Sir Vincent eyeing the poor mortal.

And the "hero", Véronique d'Orléans sneaking up on her prey from a small alley.

Gallery when public.

Véronique d'Orléans

The link was broken, so I fixed it. Is the hero a vampire also?

Oh, thanks for pointing that out, I edited it.

And yes, she is a vampire too. Just because you are a vampire you don´t need to be a twisted monster ;)

Here' s my post (I think I posted it elsewhere without realizing it :? )

Anyhow, Heres the gateway between Mt. Olympus and Erebus. The good and bad of the Greek higher powers. On the bright, beautiful side is Zues and his side of the gateway. On the opposite, through the gateway is Hades :twisted: and his minon.

Ok, here is my entry, sorry about the pictures:
http://brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=165154

Not much of a background story, just a blue wizard and a red knight fighting on a bridge. :)

BTW, Maedhros, that's a great idea; using fleshies as vampires. I think I'm going borrow that.

Sir Dillon: I like the way you built the bridge breaking as the knight smashes into it. :D The knight himself looks like a pretty good Rascus rebuild, too.

Maedhros: I second the "fleshies as vampires" remark.

7. The heroes and villains may be historical or fictional, literary or imaginary, but must be medieval themed.

Olympus is medieval?

Not really I guess. It's more of an Antic Theme ;)

You could just call it heaven and heck...same kind of idea.
If that'll keep me from being disqualified I'll change it

I like it quite a lot! I'd been planning to do a similar scene. D'oh! Beat to the punch!

Now to think of a new idea... *grumble grumble* :twisted:
