I feel that, as a co-mod of this community, I should post a review of Troy.

Be prepared. I enjoyed it... and I saw it TWICE.

And in the blue corner, we have...Collapse )

Have, at long last, updated Wild-Eyed. For anyone who doesn't already know, this is the story of Cassandra of Troy as I quite guarantee you've never heard it before. I'm up to Chapter Six -- the "abduction" (ha) of Helen. Reviewers are muchly hearted.

An effort at being poetic. [Apr. 23rd, 2004|04:45 pm]

I think this bypasses sublime and goes straight to ridiculous. My attempt at being poetic. (Cross-posted to my own journal)

Hey, I'm new here. People call me Tab (Short for Tabloid, a name from a fandom).

I'm a mythology nut, and I really like the Trojan war era in Greek Mythology, though even without the gods it's interesting (though I think the movie would be really interesting with the Gods in it... and does anyone know how they're going to portray Thetis? Is she just going to be mortal or something?)

Anyway... yeah, so that's it, I'm me, heya ^_^

Hi everybody !

Well I was wondering if anybody knows the exact list of iliad's characters wich will appear in the movie Troy. I know that there will be no gods ( What the heck ?! My favorite characters ARE the gods in  the iliad. They cut the best parts of the story ) & I guess that Diomede is also absent (again, a hero that I really like Y___Y ). I haven't seen Cassandra neither...

( Heu, I just wanted to warn you that my english is absolutely aweful ( I guess you don't need to be warned about it ^^''' ) sorry for that !)

I've just realised that, except for the introductory post, I haven't actually posted here yet! So, I thought I'd post a poem I came across the other day... I also have a post about Odysseus to make at some point but knowing me, it'll take me a while to get together everything I want to say!

~*~

There was a Helen before there was a war;
but who remembers her? O grandam, you, you, you,
with faded hair - you answer, you descend,

ascend, from where? it was all over,
I was wrapped in a tight shroud,
but you appear; the death-bands fall away;

you have come gradam, no toothless grin,
no corbeau sur un crane;
'remember,' you say, 'Helen, remember?'

and it is yesterday and the sea wind flutters my veil,
and my brothers stand side by side,
and my sister weaves the blossom for my hair -

laughter? How we laughed together,
I had forgotten - there was always stern command
or fear or loss with the others,

or treachery or guilt or subterfuge;
Odysseus had gone and my sister was to marry
or had married Agamemnon,

and 'this is no great affair,' she confided,
'only laughter, laughter,'
and Menelaus by the altar, whispering

no stinging, honey sigh, but
'it's alright, it's no great matter,
this will all soon be over.'
