main entry

I am accepting contributions of thanks and/or well-wishes to Neil which will be written down on pieces of paper and put in a bag. I hope to give this bag full of fans' words to him at the Singapore Nov 1 talk. Please include a name to sign with; otherwise, I will accept your lj name.

Just comment here and I will write your messages down. If you have any suggestions for me, please go ahead.

EDIT: this comm doesn't allow anonymous comments, so anyone who doesn't have an LJ account can go here to post their message. If you prefer to use DeviantArt, this is the relevant entry.

SON OF EDIT: I'm not accepting any more messages because it's D-Day and I'm going out with no access to the internet. See y'all at the talk.

Posted by:heidilange.
Time:12:12 pm.
Hello everyone!

I am new to this community, but have been a NG fan since the last century. I own an independent bookstore in Southwest Florida. On October 24th, 2009 my bookstore will be hosting a Graveyard Book Party | Danse Macabre, in honor of The Graveyard Book and, of course, this transitional time of year which will reach its climax on the Eve of All Saint's Day. If you are in the area, please consider attending (in costume, s'il vous plait). For more details, or if you would like to help with the party setup, click the link below.

Today is the final day to submit entries in the little contest I'm holding that doubles as a giveaway of the 10th anniversary issue of Mythic Delirium 20. Contributor Neil Gaiman has blogged about his poem in this issue here and here.

The "rules" are here. Time's a-wastin'.

I hope I'm not driving anybody crazy with all these posts about the earrings. I got six more needle and thread charms in, and am making three more pairs of the Black Is Traditional earrings. So I put up a listing for the three I have in stock!

If you need a custom shipping profile (re: you live outside the US) just comment here to reserve the earrings before anyone else snags them and I'll set that up for you!



If they've all been bought and you still want a pair, let me know! I'm going to keep making them as long as people keep buying them, so. :D

I should have a pair of 'Despair' and 'Delirium' earrings up shortly!

I've finished yet another pair of Coraline earrings! These have cat charms instead of needle and thread charms.



I am also currently working on a pair of 'Despair' earrings that will be similar in design. I also have a 'Delirium' pair in the works.

Subject:Black Is Traditional Coraline Earrings-Pair 2
Posted by:whisperstilled.
Time:6:56 pm.
Alright folks, I have another pair of the 'Black Is Traditional' Coraline dangle earrings up! This is a first come first serve sort of thing, since I know a few people expressed interest in them.

If you need a custom shipping profile (re: you live outside the US) just comment here to reserve the earrings before anyone else snags them and I'll set that up for you!



If these get snagged before you have the chance to buy them, I'm planning on making a few more pairs. However, I've currently run out of the little needle and thread charms, so if you need them ASAP you may consider buying the next pair I'll be putting up, on which will be two small silver cat charms of the same size.

I'm also currently working on a pair of earrings similar in design for Delirium and Despair. Are there any other Endless earrings you might be interested in seeing?

ETA: Wow! Sold right away again! I'll post here when the next pair is done. :D

Subject:giving away Neil's poetry
Posted by:time_shark.
Time:11:20 am.
I'm running a giveaway on the Mythic Delirium website.

Specifically, I'm giving away five copies of Mythic Delirium's giant 10th anniversary issue with a new poem from Neil and a specially hand-stamped illustration that goes with it. ("Conjunctions" was written after he and Amanda Palmer shared a strange experience during a California trip in December; Amanda also wrote a song based on it, "Trout Heart Replica.")

The way to participate in the giveaway (and perhaps get yourself a free sample copy, or a neat gift for a friend) is explained here.

Hopefully this is allowed?

I'm a lover of Neil Gaiman's works in all forms, including the movie and book of Coraline. To show my fannish delight, and to offer a way for other fans to flaunt their love, I've made the 'Black Is Traditional' Coraline Button Eye Earrings. Just click the picture to check them out! And be sure to poke around the rest of the shop!



ETA: This pair has been sold, but I'll have a new pair up within the week!

Subject:My theory about Delight & the first Despair
Posted by:phoenix_down711.
Time:5:50 am.
Ok here goes.

Delight killed the first Despair.

I know that sounds crazy- but it seems to me that Delight and Despair would naturally be at odds. Now, Despair did something horrible- that we know, but I am not sure what that would be exactly, but it could have very easily been aimed at Delight. Probably something pretty awful, since Morpheus says that Despair's murderer had a pretty good reason for doing it.

Question: How could a personification of Delight kill someone?

Answer: Delightfully.

See where I am going?

Now, this raises the question of how Delight avoided the judgement of the Kindly Ones. Well, the act of taking the idea of Delight to the darkest end of the spectrum changed it into something else entirely. After doing the deed, Delight found herself a murderer, and went over the edge. Now that she was Delirium, and no longer Delight, the Kindly Ones no longer had anyone to kill, and let her be.

This could explain why when we first meet the family, nearly everyone holds Delirium at arm's length; while they must acknowledge that Delirium is now a different person, they still hold her responsible for Despair's death, sort of, but also can't judge her too harshly, because they know Despair did something horrible. So they just try to ignore her, since none of them know what to do with her.

Subject:Delirium cosplay -request-
Posted by:susumi_chan.
Time:3:22 am.
I decided to delurk (hey people!) and come with a request (which I deeply hope isn't against any rules or so).

Anyway, in October I plan on attending London MCM Expo, and hopefully be able to pull off a Delirium cosplay. Hence my request.

Is anyone sitting around on good reference pictures of her, as in full body picture, and maybe even from the back? I don't have any possibilities of getting my hands on my Sandman books right now, and I haven't found any real useful pictures by googling, and going back on entries in the community. At least not any doesn't isn't just facial pictures.
It would really help a lot, and I want to do it as good as possible, so I need the time. If this isn't allowed, I'll delete it. If it is, and someone can help me, I'll thank now already for the help.
