Comment on this post. I will choose six userpics from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are using them. Post your answers (and this explanation of the meme) in your own journal (if you want) so others can play along.
Within the cloak of Night: I particularly liked this one because of the lighting. It sort of serves as a visual metaphor of who and what she is; both Human and Fae, Dark and Light, Severity and Mercy (although she would never admit it). It is sort of like the Power that is hidden in plain sight. It’s there, you just have to look for it. She is not just one thing or the other, but both. This picture sort of shows that with it’s combination of dark and light.
In the pursuit of power (It’s Hsu’s favourite, so he insists I pick it) – Somehow I am not surprised that Hsu would pick this one! *g* This particular icon is one that Fanny actually had me design. It is something that she has said over and over again. She does what she does because she not only is fascinated by Power, she understands it, she lives it and breathes it every moment of her life. That consciousness, most people who are human do not understand. She is not entirely human and therefore Power just IS. It is there to do what you want with it whenever you have need of it, and it’s a tool. She realizes that few understand this concept at all. Hsu Danmei does understand it implicitly, so I think that is why they see eye to eye on a great deal.
primitive sun: Would you believe I actually swiped this image from another eBay seller? Fanny claimed it as hers. For her there is a deep symbology to it. She has a ceremonial robe that has that design embroidered on it, so she wanted it for her own.
Domina: I just loved seeing Fanny all trussed up in red leather, hair drawn back, her cleavage prominent and up front. Her collar completely made up of diamonds. The look, beyond it’s obvious sensuality, also implies strength, control and a certain untouchability. The message is she is very expensive and very elusive and knowing her greater secrets is going to exact a very high price – and even then you still may never be able to fathom her true nature. Sort of a bit like Power itself. 😉
ethereal blue: This one was made by my dear friend, jessierarr, who is sadly MIA as of this writing. I miss her terribly and her icon making talent – along with her writing of Athos , allfor_one, of the Three Musketeers fandom is obvious. One of Fanny’s favourite colours is blue. Her wedding gown, when she and the Comte de Rochefort were married, was in the deepest, midnight blue, flecked with gold and silver stars and jewels to resemble the night sky. Being Fae she is ethereal, and the blue is the blue of the High Priestess and High Lady of the Fortunate Island.
on the streets of Paris: This one I chose because of the composition. I love the fact that she can be in and around people socially, but at the end of it all, she really is not of them. Here she looks as if she has alot on her mind, and she usually does.
