[sticky entry] Sticky: The Fellowship lives on

The three Lord of the Rings films have touched all of us in so many ways. And most importantly, they brought us all together, a group of people who not only share a love of the movies, but also recognize the special magic of the cast and crew. This group of people and the characters they brought to life have made us laugh and cry, given us tremendous joy and stole into our hearts.

New Zealand Stories is a place to celebrate the films, the story, the actors, the crew and our entire LotR community. We'll attempt to mirror the spirit of filming by organizing themes that roughly take us through the life of the project: from arriving in New Zealand through the Fellowship premieres.

How can you participate? Fic recs, fan mixes, videos, art, fanfiction (slash, het, gen; fictional or real people), meta discussions, links to articles or interviews of interest, picspams, games: the floor is wide open for all kinds of fan creations and contributions. All the info you need are in the admin links in the sidebar.

This is a no-pressure, no-commitment comm. No sign-ups are required, post when you like about what you'd like. And if you have something that's not related to the current month's themes but is connected to these films and the overall celebration, post away. Let's take a walk down memory lane together, and throw a huge blowout fandom party along the way.

Title: Words/Silence/Flesh (Part 61-63/?)
Authors: Barb ([livejournal.com profile] savageseraph) and Galadriel ([livejournal.com profile] caras_galadhon)
Fandom: LotRPS
Pairing: Sean Bean/Viggo Mortensen, David Wenham/Miranda Otto
Rating: NC-17 overall.
Feedback: Always appreciated.
Disclaimer: Fiction. Absolutely did not happen. How would we know?
Summary: Sean's away, on break from shooting, and Harry's taken an interest in Viggo.
Warnings: Depiction is not endorsement.
Notes: [livejournal.com profile] savageseraph posted a short letter in her LJ (from Harry) with the intent of prodding me into working faster on a shared WIP. "Sean" responded in kind in my own LJ, and so began some friendly writer-to-writer taunting. ...Which rapidly and quite unexpectedly began to develop its own plot, spinning entirely off from the original story. Due to the odd genesis of this tale, it starts out metatexual and silly, then becomes progressively more serious and kinky.

- Part 61: Driven (Pt. 1/3)
(Sean obsesses over his car and his friends [more or less in that order].)

- Part 62: Driven (Pt. 2/3)
(Sean and Miranda get a little closer.)

- Part 63: Surreal
(Miranda and Dave seize some time alone.)

I came to all of this really late; saw all three of the films in January 2004 (rented Fellowship and Two Towers, but thankfully Return of the King was still playing at the Uptown Theater in DC and I went back for seconds and thirds before it finally left) but I didn't have internet access at home at that time. My family helped feed my obsession by giving me the extended editions of the first two films plus a set of the books for my birthday and I mainlined it all.

Toward the end of the year I had internet at home and found some of the great collections of pictures and videos that were online at the time. I downloaded as much as my dial-up connection could handle, and over the holidays I forced my sister to watch a playlist of clips and a slideshow of pictures so she could see why I didn't only adore these films I also was completely mad for this cast. And being the nice and kind person that she is, she indulged me. (Not that it was complete torture for her; she enjoys the movies too and does get why the Fellowship of cast and crew are so special.) Some of those files haven't faired so well over the years and I've lost some others so what follows is not the complete FotR portion of that playlist. (Plus I found a couple that were new to me while tooling around youtube.) But I hope you enjoy some of these clips and have fun watching.

Premieres and Press coverage. I've tried to place them in the right city, but from some pics I just honestly don't know. Because I run a Sean Bean website he's on all those pics. My apologies for that. Some small pics, some big. Click for full size





more pics and video.. )

I was hoping to have a little something more substantial for FotR's anniversary, but it's been a hectic week, so I hope another couple parts of our ongoing NZ-era fic will suit all the same.

In two days it'll be the tenth anniversary of the London premiere of Fellowship! I'd love to be able to celebrate throughout the week of premieres but I'm not sure I'll have that many posts to put up. I'm hoping to have at least a couple of things to share starting on the tenth (including a comment fic post if I can figure out how they work and get the wording right) but it would be wonderful if others posted things as well. Honestly, anything goes. If you just want to share a memory or a favorite picture or story of the cast, talk about a cherished part of the story or discuss differences between the book and the film, anything and everything is welcome.

While I don't think I can organize a joint rewatch of the movie, would there be interest in having a post where people who are planning to rewatch the film could talk about the film (and/or the extras) as they watch it?
