FanstRA day 3: Tea with StelladelNord

Tea with StelladelNord

My next chat is with StelladelNord previously PoeticHeart, a very creative spirit. She is perhaps just as enigmatic as Lucas and I mean that in the best sense 🙂 her creativity can’t be contained. When I requested if she’d like to have a little chat her username; PoeticHeart shortly after switch back to an old favorite StelladelNord. Like Jule we met on twitter around the same time and I have a hard time keeping up with all her writing. She was so kind to take the time for a virtual chat over tea and assures me to use her nickname Bee.

I should note that fall 2011 she published her poetry on Amazon US and Amazon UK

Fanny: what drew you to Richard Armitage or RA, as we like to call him and what made you want to write, or in your case move to prose versus poetry 🙂
Bee: *smiles* Mine was simple…. I wrote my first fic based on a nightmare, Chloe was me and Lucas… well Lucas was a man I couldn’t see. 🙂
Fanny: And how do you like your coffee or is it tea?
Bee: I take my tea black no sugar 😉
Fanny:.. I’ll make myself a cuppa Rooibos – when I do have tea I tend to go herbal 🙂 You write mainly about Lucas – Writing comes fairly natural to you it seems like a release. How do you fit it in your shedule? What prompted you to post your stories on Wattpad.

Bee:  No, couldn’t write Thornton, I do mainly write Lucas North and of course the delightful Chloe. I found myself exploring another side of Lucas, the man who had a vulnerable side, a heart that beat for love and passion and need, there had to be more to the man that what was shown to us care of KUDOS and the BBC, they had created a complex man but only gave us one side of him, the side that was hiding from the pain he’d experienced from Russian, from Elizabeta… everything.

I fit my writing in much to the detriment of my sleep from around 2am onwards… I’m cursed, once I start, I don’t want to stop.

A friend told me about Wattpad – I’d originally posted on fanfiction but had problems with the actual account.

this story must be written or I won’t catch my ZZzzzzzz

Fanny:  It’s a common thing for creative spirits to work late at night – I believe the stillness of the night stimulates the creativity – so its not that you already suffer from insomnia ..

I’ve also wondered whether your role playing with Lucas North on twitter feeds into your story development.

Bee: I have no choice but to do it then, I’ve got two children and other commitments that keep me very busy.

No, the role play didn’t really contribute … although now Chloe is on twitter.

I’ve been searching for her voice to work on Let The Rain Fall Down“. a story which I love but gives my creativity some hard work.

Fanny: With such a curse when bedtime stories come around you must fall asleep while reading! Hopefully you still nap along with the offspring once in awhile!

Is there an image of Lucas that  inspires you the most?

Bee: I will find the pic, well there are two…. and now it seems I’m writing Sir Guy 🙂

Fanny:  Amazing!! did he come in a dream too?

Bee: Actually, he came because I created a female character on twitter: Gwen Verrall to go against/with Guy and the story kinda appeared in my head.

Fanny: Can I presume you had seen Robin Hood before Spooks?

Bee: Actually no, funny story: I tried to watch it – made it through the first two episodes but the arrow shooting through to tell you locations drove me mental with the noise. I still have to see it completely. Does that make me bad, that I write a character I really don’t know that well?

Let’s make those wenches jump off their coaches!

Fanny: Oh I know they often scare the heck out of me!! Not bad, fascinating actually and you’re not the first to do that.

Bee: Oh FYI… I have a twitter account specifically for writing… its @_StelladelNord_ so if you want to know something catch me there too..

Fanny: (then I notice she had changed her username on Wattpad) For the duration of FanstRA who will you be for the sake of the readers ?

Bee: StelladelNord: Not changing, it has been a name that meant a lot to me ‘Star of the North’ due to my writing about Lucas and also where I come from, I’m a Northern girl in the UK.

Fanny: love the name too! Love Latin!! (now I’m singing “Life in a northern town” 🙂 i thought it would be neat to link to your Tales of Sherwood blog – it seems fanfiction in motion or am I mistaken.

Bee: It will be…. it was the person who writes Guy on twitter‘s idea. We’re working on the concept of making RP/writing/blogging all interactive.

Fanny: Thanks for having tea with me!  I have 2 more questions I’m asking everyone: what’s your preferred mode of writing: Pen & Paper or word processing.  What’s your preferred time of writing?

Bee: For poetry I use pen and paper 99% of  the time and word processing for prose.  My preferred time of writing is from 1 am GMT onwards because it’s quiet.

Fanny: I recall you & Juliet collaborated on a Lucas fanvid & would love to mention it too – I’m sure I’ve got it in my library – just can’t recall the name at the moment

Bee: Juliet and I? Yeah there are two… I wrote the poem in the 1st video about 3 weeks beforehand. It was supposed to be a one off certainly not for that vid!

Lucas North/John Bateman “In Pieces”

 and

Lucas North “The Water”

I’m in awe of the creativity around here! Thanks for visiting, if you can still think after so much RA goodness go check out the other FanstRA contributors!

FanstRA day 1: My top AU/Crossover fanvideos

Happy FanstRAvaganza!! Sit down and relax! warning: NSFW : Richard Armitage in motion!

I’m picking up a thread from last year when encouraged by Frenz who’s fanvid love I share. It was a last minute thing, I noticed one or two are not even up on YouTube any longer, neither is one I wanted to include today. I’d like to update those but likely won’t have time by this posting!

For those not familiar with the fanfiction term AU: is short for Alternate Universe.

Crossover perhaps describes it better; it simply is picking fictional characters from different “universes” or settings and putting them together. But I DO promise NO slash in these listings. (My favorite is no longer listed on YouTube)

Enjoy !

One could argue that so many Guy of Gisborne and Lucas North videos are AU fanvideos as they choose different endings than the original characters.

Its with much gratitude and admiration I link to these talented vidders, hopefully you find a moment to hit thumbs UP

7. 19bt80 : The evolution of Sir Guy : this expresses what we are in anticipation for!


6. TheTeucner : Evil – Sheriff/Guy of Gisborne/Marian : not for the faint-hearted but for Sheriff lovers 😉

5. Blackcousins4life : Crossover (Guy/Marian/Henry/Anne) – Fight for Glory : Guy kills again but someone else!

4. MissDaydreamer101 : Someone Like You : I only came recently upon this pairing & i can’t help wondering how Arthur’s looks would have changed the dynamics in Robin Hood tremendously!

3: Georgette : Wait for me & I’ll be back (Guy & Marian in XXI) : a brilliant told story!

2: Fairykingdom86 : Soulmates Never Die : my first AU fanvid; the song a perfect match to the scenes

1: Summersparkle :

LOVE her style!! It was hard picking ONE : first I was so sure this was #1: I mean he IS all we need at times? 😉 or this : he would make us “Howl” 🙂 but who can deny Adam Lambert as a PERFECT singing voice for Guy: here “For your entertainment” 🙂

Too Rough for You – Anne & Guy :

Do you have any favorites? Feel free to add in the commentary & don’t forget to enjoy any, all of the blogtagteamers!

Guy of Gisborne in BBC’s Robin Hood

Foremost thanks to RAFrenzy, if she hadn’t kept at me for this, I probably wouldn’t have started this blog thingy ..

Finally; my top 10 list of Guy fanvids! The first 5 I had send in as nominations to Avalon’s blog for the FANstRAvaganza.

http://avalon-medieval.blogspot.com/2011/03/fan-video-nominations-part-of-2011.html

It is difficult to just pick one but it seems many agree it truly is a number ONE!

What makes these fanvids so fabulous is the fact that by pulling and editing clips together to music and the occasional use of audiotrack your perception of the characters portrayed in BBC’s Robin Hood becomes different or enhanced depending on the take of the vidder of each fanvid. The tone of a song sets a mood and if the song doesn’s speak to you there is no way of liking the subject matter. On the other hand sometimes the subject matter makes a song likeable!! LOL It explains a lot of the content on my iPod!!

I don’t think I’m done with my lists; there are too many sexy Guy vids, too many storyline vids; too many unknown vidders who then make this ONE brilliant vid!

Which vid stayed with you?
