Comment here with your characters’ name and I will tell you what Fanny thinks of them. (If they have met or interacted, of course.) It does not have to be said that this is mun knowledge only!
This is a repost since my LJ was being completely a pain earlier! 😉

Not that our pups have interacted much at all, although one day they really should :D. Hsu Danmei.

This mun would definitely like to remedy that! 🙂
Fanny says: “Hsu Danmei is a legend, even among Immortals. I have heard him referred to in certain circles as the Mountain. Many may try to challenge the Mountain, but the Mountain, no matter how you try to best it, will always win. I have watched Hsu for some time and am aware that he has managed his finances and those of others with great success. It would be hard to imagine someone who was a warlord not being able to be just as successful on the battlefields of finance and investment. I have a mind to pay him a visit…..soon.” *smiles*
Wow! Hsu’s very flattered, not that’s difficult 🙂 and thinks they’ll get along just fine
We’ll have to figure out how they could get together and/or know each other.
Maybe we can sort out a storyline or something in either email or Instant Messenger. My email is sekhmet at netins dot net. My AIM ID is Fanny Hackabout, or Unseeliewytch1. I actually have all of the different chat clients so whatever one if any you are open to.
No rush, no pressure. I am in Chicago for a week, as of tonight, so I will only have limited email access.
Duncan is curious, even though dinner hasn’t happened yet.
Given that they have only had limited interaction, and going ony by what Athos has told her and the very small bit of conversation that they had on the phone, Fanny does think that Duncan is quite amusing. On one hand she is quite grateful that Duncan helped Athos when he became a new immortal. On the other hand, she is rather “annoyed” (for lack of a better word) that it was probably at Duncan’s prompting that Athos did not let Fanny know that he was alive in excess of 250 years.
In the end however, everything happens for a reason. I think that Fanny sees the potential and the likeability of Duncan. Surely, in the end she would come to her own conclusions about him, which at this point are favourable. 😉
James won’t admit to being curious, but he damn well is, so let’s hear what Fanny thinks of him. 🙂
OOC: Oh this definitely brought a smile to Fanny’s face. She has often wanted to verbalize what she thought of James Norrington. 😉
A smile of obvious pleasure slowly crosses Fanny’s features at the mention of Commodore James Norrington.
“I have not spent nearly as much time in the presence of this man. But in what little time I have spent, and by what I know of his father, he is a good man. Yes, I know…the English, particularly officers in His Majesty’s Royal Navy maintain their stiff upper lip and dignity as much as possible. But beneath the uniform, beneath those things which make him so very much an English lord in his own right, lies an intelligent and thoughtful man. Injustices and inequities bother him greatly. I have watched him dispatch a duty that he would rather not have done, and inside I could have detected everything within him fought it. He does not know that I have observed him perform what he must have thought were only the smallest of kindnesses. The smallest things bespeak loudly of the man that he is. It goes beyond birth and upbringing to that one place where a lesser man cannot lie. That which truly lies within him.”
“If I were to wish for my daughters, Maeve, Caroline or even Fiona to find a man who would love and honour them for who they truly are, I would wish for someone like James Norrington. And if my heart were not committed to another, I might even wish the same for myself.”
Like I’m going to pass this up. Go ahead with both Athos and David if you want. 😉
Fanny has a few thoughts on both of your muses as well!
RE David: If anyone could be her son other than Ethan, that would be David. I know that may seem like an odd thing, especially she being Fae, and not a vampire. She does see in David a little bit of her own life’s hardship. To Fanny David is pure potential, even within the constructs of his being a vampire. She appreciates his sense of humour, he amuses her in that between the two of them there is very little bullshit. Their communication is mutually respectful and they know that they can give each other crap and it’s safe, neither one is going to make judgements. Fanny knows she can give David things he needs to know, and he actually has taught her a thing or two as well.
Re Athos: Oh boy, this is a loaded one! I think from the moment they met at King Louis’ court in Paris there was a very special bond between the two of them. She makes no bones about the fact that the time they spent in each other’s company, they talked endlessly. Fanny and Athos have this uncanny ability to be having one verbal conversation, and about two more underlying that which are completely NON-verbal! She adores the fact that they can render each other speechless, too. Fanny accepts Athos for who he is, not whom she can turn him into. She knows Athos is broody and depressed and that he keeps some things close to his breast and may never open up to her fully. To her mind, she figures that when he is ready, he will tell her what she needs to know, but until such time, it causes no conflict, and so she accepts that. She also is accutely aware that he accepts her for who she is. There is a mutual trust there most of the time, but make no mistake, they can and do fight from time to time, not just with words but now and again with crossed swords! 😉
Didn’t we cover this some time ago? 😉
Actually, there isn’t alot that has changed about what Fanny thinks of Captain Barbossa since she posted her thoughts regarding Captain Barbossa. Lookiing back I think she has tempered it just a little. She does respect him as a Captain, and one with an incredibly sharp and calculating mind. He has it in him to be quite the charmer when he wants to, and I think that part amuses her a very great deal. I don’t think she will ever lose her underlying affection for the Captain, but part of why they had such chemistry is because they could beat the crap out of each other and both of them were ok with that! 😉
Yes, but I never get sick of hearing Fanny’s thoughts on the Captain… and he never gets sick of being thought about! 😛
I was in fact curious if her opinion had changed at all over time. That post btw is one of my favorites!! It’s just uncanny how she captures the essence of their relationship, and of Barbossa’s character as a whole. It’s been a wonderful reference and inspiration for me, especially since I’ve endeavored to return from my long hiatus with the muse.
I think Fanny finds his charm most amusing when he works it on others who’ve little or no idea what truly lies behind it. 😉
And yes, the mutually enjoyed beatings! Good times, good times. *g*
She’s terribly curious! Isabella.
Fanny respects Isabella greatly. She especially appreciates Isabella’s bloody nature. I think that Fanny is secretly looking for some Sidhe blood in Isabella’s veins, because some of the things she has done have been very Fae-like.
Now, there is one thing that I found really very interesting. Fanny is VERY heterosexual, but I think with Isabella there was as close to a sexual attraction for another woman that Fanny could ever get. I think it has alot to do with Isabella being a fellow monarch and thef act that she is as ruthless as Fanny herself is. 😉
Have we interacted? I should like to know what you think, perhaps as introduction. I do apologise that I cannot yet respond in kind.
John H. Holliday, DDS.
Other than historically, I dont think your Doc has interacted with my muse. I do know that Fanny would probably be VERY leary of Doc Holliday, simply because their causes are so diametrically oppossed.
They haven’t met, but she knows all about Milady. *smirk*
I hope you are ready for this, it is going to be long. 😉
Believe it or not, Fanny actually does have some sympathy for Milady. The reasons for this are manifold. The key to these, of course, is Athos. Athos would not be so haunted by the ghost of Sabine if there was not something there to love. Given what he has imparted in what he has said, she could see both sides of the story. He had some incredible expectations of Milady, being his exotic, beautiful, mysterious bride, and he married her, not because he had to – although sometimes he kind of alludes that because he was honourable, and they were intimate that was the way it should be.
There is no doubt in Fanny’s mind that he loved and (still loves)Milady, and she knows that he will until the day he dies. Fanny sees no reason to fight that or be jealous of that fact. It would be kind of stupid to give him grief over a situation that was so very tragic on all sides. Fanny has often said, “jealousy is borne of insecurity,” and she is nothing if not secure in who she is and how she and Athos feel about each other and th eir relationship. Of course that past relationship is going to cause some discomfort from time to time. It wouldn’t be realistic or ‘normal’, if it didn’t.
From what Athos has imparted, Fanny can see herself doing some of the things that Sabine has done – and she has. Sabine is a killer, so is Fanny. They both use duplicity and they both have had an incredible amount of pain and hurt in their lives, but the bottom line is survival, and both women would do whatever they had to in order to not only survive, but to make sure that they do so in a way that does not make them easy prey. Both women are incredibly attractive. They get men’s attention. Both are aware it is a man’s world, and using whatever whiles they need to in order to come out on top of a bloody, violent and duplicitous existence is just part and parcel of the game. And lastly, and most importantly, both women love Athos very much – in spite of his faults and failures and brooding nature. The see the value of that even when he is at his bullheaded worst! Both of them would give their lives for that love – and Milady did that, and she continued to do that over and over again. Love made her a pawn, albeit a dangerous one, in a very large game. But it was the love that she had for Athos that won out in the end. I could see the two of them actually respecting each other a great deal – as dangerous women of intelligence often do. They may not fully trust each other, or even like each other, but respect is another matter. I think it is there. Either would be fools if it weren’t.
Sorry for the ramble. I hope that made sense. 🙂
… I was left speechless after reading this. Holy crap.
I actually agree. I think they would respect each other very much.
Now, in the Nexus, of course, who knows how Milady will feel towards Fanny once she lets her feelings for Athos get the better of her (and she finds out about the intimacy shared between Athos & Fanny.) Milady, despite using men, never stopped loving him and so it might sound very hypocritical of her to be jealous, but… I’m not sure. We’ll have to wait and see how she reacts to everything!
If she was well connected enough with the Court, and there is every indication that she was, then she would find, I think, some satisfaction in knowing that Athos drank himself into oblivion much of the time because of her.
There might be a quiet satisfaction to her that the man who was her husband and who turned against her, could not recover from that love enough to find love again.
Finally getting around to tagging this for my three guys, Nic, Jamie Fraser, and Luka Kovac (who needs to be friended by you btw).
Hope you’re having fun, can’t wait for you to get back.
