I don't know what I'm giving anyone for Christmas yet, but I figured I could find things in London/Prague/Athens/Paris. KilluaGon and LestatNikki fic I can probably do, though. (Actually, I've an old LestatNikki fic you've never read that used to be uploaded on FanFiction.net but got deleted with the rest of the Anne Rice section.)

Your Christmas presents should be sent to your university address? I thought you were going back to Nova Scotia for Christmas?

Just in case you're planning on sending anything to me, it should go to my home address, even though I won't actually be back there until the third week of January.

On a sort-of side note, I can't believe how much that first Raiden figure costs. 0_0

Prague = the sex.

My university address, since if I get back before it comes it would cost a lot to send to Grande Prairie and I wouldn't get it till the Summer :(

I of course already have got you some-things >.>

It's a limited release highly detailed thing. I'd never spend that much unless I had that much to spend so freely. Hence it goes on my list which often has things I can't afford put onto it :3

I have fallen in love with how creepy Cyborg Raiden looks >.> AND HIS EYES!

Any particular reason? Anything you would like? *entirely not a hint*

(It may sound foolish, but I actually set my heart on visiting Prague after playing Vampire the Masquerade: Redemption; the first quarter of the game is set in Prague and White Wolf is fairly adept at combining real-world places and facts into their World of Darkness. Hence, the Astronomical Clock, Old Town, and Jewish Quarter are all high on my list of things to see.)

. . . Why am I so bad at coming up with present ideas?

He still looks incredibly creepy to me. o_0

Edit: Ahh, and I forgot to mention that you icon amuses me. :p

[Be warned that I wrote this over five years ago and haven't edited it since. It's probably quite bad, but I can't bring myself to re-read it. x_x]

Nicki and I slowly slid into the red cushioned seats of the great Paris theatre. The noise of the crowd echoed off the high ceiling, creating a low hum throughout the hall. We had dressed in our finest clothes, Nicolas in a dark green coat embroidered with fine gold thread, hair tied back with a matching silk ribbon, while I was clad in deep blue with my fur-lined cloak wrapped around my shoulders.

The sounds of the orchestra tuning their instruments began to replace the murmur of voices. I glanced at Nicki and smiled when I saw the excitement in his dark eyes. His eyes gazed at the violinists, tightening the horsehair of their bows and plucking away at the strings as I had seen him do so many times.

Suddenly, silence blanketed the room. The conductor strode out, a tall gentleman clothed in ebony velvet. Polite applause. He turned around and raised his hands. Simultaneously, the violinists tucked their beautiful wooden instruments under their chins, bows held just above the strings. The hands came down. Low, reverberating notes pulsed through the air and charged it with that wonderful rush of excitement and anticipation.

I lost myself in the bittersweet sadness of the piece, staring up at the candles on the chandelier without really seeing it. This was not Nicki’s intense, soul-filled music, yet it touched me nonetheless. I felt a gentle pressure on my arm. It seemed so distant that I hardly noticed it. Nicki . . . Yes, it was him. I knew his touch.

Minor chords provided accompaniment for the sorrowful tune of the violins. An immense despair welled up within me. I felt alone, separated from the world. Oh, the misery! I sank into my own world, feeling once again the hopelessness and worthlessness of it all.

I stayed like that, eyes glazed, only half hearing the music throbbing from the stage. It was not until the audience began applauding enthusiastically that I remembered where I was. Blinking, I met Nicki’s eyes, concern and love dancing inside those brown orbs. His hands clasped mine, stroking them gently with his long fingers.

Shakily, I rose, leaning on Nicki to steady myself. We made our way out of the theatre, I being practically dragged by my companion. As we began the journey home through the narrow streets dusted with snow, I looked around me as if in a dream, squinting at such everyday things as horses and windows. Everything seemed different to me.

And then I saw the darkness. The way the night wrapped around the houses and covered the city. I felt it surround me, eating away at me. No, I didn’t want it there! I wanted to believe that all was not lost, that this life had meaning after all. But I couldn’t.

And Nicki. Where was my Nicki? I needed him, loved him. I must have called out his name, for I felt his arms wrap around my shoulders, squeezing them reassuringly. For the rest of the journey, I walked numbly next to Nicki, eyes staring straight ahead, but not comprehending anything I saw.

As soon as we reached our room in the inn, I collapsed onto my pallet and began to cry. Nicki was immediately by my side, telling me everything was all right, kissing my cheeks. I buried my face in his shoulder, twining my fingers in his curly dark hair, pulling it loose as sobs racked my body.

Later that night after I had calmed down, I begged Nicki to play his violin for me. I didn’t know why, only that I needed to hear his music, to see him bend and sway with the violin as if he was an extension of the instrument. At first he was reluctant, but in the end he relented.

The notes were wild and full of fire. I watched as he put his whole soul into the passionate piece, leaning into the violin and whipping the bow quickly over the strings. But in the back of my mind, I could still hear the melody of unbearable sorrow.

I meant to reply earlier, but put it off with the funeral arrangements and just re-found it while sorting through my old inbox messages.

Thank you for re-commenting! I had almost forgotten about this piece, though looking at it now, I thought it was longer! (Also, oh, Lestat. You are so melodramatic!)

Vaguely related, the latest Fandom_Wank post features Anne Rice's Pandora.
